- This page is about character levels. For the experience given to the player upon completing various actions, see XP. For the player's level, see Level.
Each playable character in My Little Pony has a level from 0 to 5, represented by stars. Except for Princess Celestia, Princess Luna and Granny Smith who start at 5 stars, all playable characters start at 0 stars and must be leveled up by playing minigames with them. The Apple-Picking, Ball Bounce, and Telescope minigames grant experience to the character, and when that character has enough experience to gain a level, playing the Clear the Skies minigame causes them to gain the star. A multiplier based on the number of stars a character has is also awarded in the Equestria Girls mini-game and special social event version of Clear the Skies minigame.
Many shops have a star requirement for their second product or bonus; the star requirement for the bonus is always one more than the second product's requirement. In addition, several quests require a character to be leveled to a certain number of stars. Other than this, a character's level has no effect on gameplay.
The amount of points required to level a pony varies, with cheaper and earlier unlocked ponies generally requiring less points than those more expensive and unlocked later.
Tip: Don't level every single pony to 5 stars; only those required by quests, the Mane 6 (for Equestria Girls bonus score), and any additional beyond these that you need to fill 5-star shop slots. Otherwise, if you receive an event that requires playing a specific levelling minigame a given amount of times, you won't be able to participate.
In update 4.1, a reward systems has been introduced base on the amount of stars earnt across all the ponies.
