These ponies are a little bit more special than the other background ponies. They play a bigger role than a common background pony but not as big as a minor character's. They are created by the show's staff for a [[BitCharacter specific purpose]] in mind or possess a distinct character design rarely or not seen in other background ponies. They rarely appear and most of them have [[SpearCarrier only appeared once]] but when they do appear, their characterization is more consistent than most if not all common background ponies who gets a chance of playing a minor role.

'''Determining a special background pony:'''
* They possess a NonStandardCharacterDesign.
* They have not (yet) played a major role.
* They are {{Bit Character}}s or {{Spear Carrier}}s [[note]]{{One Scene Wonder}} is an opinion towards a SpearCarrier.[[/note]].
* Their characterization is (mostly) consistent.
* They are a group of background ponies.

[[quoteright:210:[[http://fav.me/d4aexjm http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/redheart_1_8507.png]]]]
[[caption-width-right:192:''"Where does it hurt?"''[[note]]This is [[AllThereInTheScript Nurse Redheart]], the first nurse pony to appear in the show.[[/note]]]]

->''"Oh thank you Twilight! We need all the help we can get!"''
-->-- '''[[AllThereInTheScript Redheart]]''', during the food poisoning incident caused by the "baked bads" in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]"

-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]"

-->'''Voiced by:''' [[Music/HeyOcean Ashleigh Ball]] (Nurse Redheart and Nurse Snowheart)[[note]]respectively according to a tweet by Creator/TabithaStGermain and [[http://efrpresents.everfree.net/2012/05/interview-ashleigh-ball/ this]] interview with [[Music/HeyOcean Ashleigh Ball]][[/note]] and Creator/CathyWeseluck (Nurse Sweetheart)[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/CathyWeseluck/status/232253826776829953 this]] tweet by Creator/CathyWeseluck[[/note]]

Multiple nurses have appeared throughout the series, all of them female earth ponies with cross-and-hearts cutie marks of various colors. Two nurses, one with a white coat and pink mane ([[AllThereInTheScript Nurse Redheart]]) and another with a blue coat and green mane ("[[FanNickname Nurse Tenderheart]]") are introduced in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" after everypony gets sick from Applejack's muffins. [[AllThereInTheScript Redheart]] is later seen working at Ponyville Hospital's nursery in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes Baby Cakes]]", telling Pinkie to quiet down while the newborns are trying to sleep. Three more nurses ("[[FanNickname Nurse Sweetheart]]", [[AllThereInTheScript Nurse Snowheart]], and "[[FanNickname Nursery Rhyme]]") are introduced in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It and Weep]]", where we also see other areas of Ponyville Hospital. [[AllThereInTheScript Snowheart]] is later seen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E8JustForSidekicks Just for Sidekicks]]". Before the toy line gave Nurse Snowheart her official AllThereInTheScript name, she was given the FanNickname Nurse Coldheart.

* TheBigGirl: Nurse Sweetheart is by far the largest of the nurse ponies. Possibly also the oldest.
* CustomUniform: Not very noticeable at first glance but if you examine more closely you'll see that Nurse Redheart's (and probably also her PaletteSwap; Nurse Tenderheart) nurse hat has a differently designed logo compared to the other nurse ponies. Her logo consists of a thick [[UsefulNotes/TheRedCross red cross]] with small pink hearts on each of its corners while the rest of the nurses have nurse hats with a thin ''white'' cross (also with small pink hearts) and is enclosed in a red circle.
* {{Expy}}: Design-wise, without the hat and red cross, Nurse Redheart looks a lot like G1 Sundance.
* TheMedic: All of them.
* MulticoloredHair: Nurse Sweetheart has purple and white stripes similar to those of Twilight Sparkle's mother.
* PaletteSwap:
** Nurse Tenderheart is a PaletteSwap of Nurse Redheart.
** Nursery Rhyme is a PaletteSwap of Twist. Minus the NerdGlasses.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: Nurse Snowheart.
** You Gotta Have Green Hair: Nurse Tenderheart.
* StockCostumeTraits: They all wear white nurse hats with [[UsefulNotes/TheRedCross Red Cross]]-ish symbols on it to signify that [[CaptainObvious they're nurses or part of the hospital/medical staff]].
* TagalongKid: Nursery Rhyme. She appears to be a qualified nurse for some reason even though she should still be in school at her age. That or she's OlderThanSheLooks.

[[folder:The Flower Trio]]

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_flower_trio_1771.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:That scroll bar is horrifying![[note]]From left to right: Daisy, [[AllThereInTheScript Lily Valley]] and Rose]][[/note]]

->''"The horror! '''The horror!'''"''

-->'''Speaking Appearance:''' (All Three) "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend in Deed]]"

Daisy, Rose, and [[AllThereInTheScript Lily Valley]]; A trio of flower-themed earth ponies who tend to overreact to tragedies such as Zecora coming into town, a stampede of wild bunnies and Applebloom's cutie pox.

To see their individual character profiles go to the [[Characters/{{FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies-CommonPonies}} Common Background Ponies page]].

* {{Catchphrase}}: ''"The Horror! THE HORROR!"'', shouted out thus far by Lily & Rose but not Daisy.
** Subverted in their appearance in "The Cutie Pox". They get all worked up and panic but none of them say the line.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: This trope is their RunningGag. Subverted in the [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=256161614401283 Comic-Con 2011 poster]]/[[http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.262953797055398.84804.118429394841173 desktop background]], where they look quite concerned by the fact that there's a cockatrice right there in front of them.
** Subverted again in the [[http://fav.me/d5av7xg Season 2 poster]], where they all look terrified because Queen Chrysalis herself is standing next to them, giving them an evil glare to boot.
* FloralThemeNaming
* FlowerMotifs: Each of them are themed after a specific kind of flower.
* SetBonus: In the Enterplay CCG game, each of the Trio has their own card with different abilities, but effect of one can feed into another, as such to create a powerful card combination with all three in play.
* RunningGag: They will each say something about the unfolding tragedy one by one then start panicking which causes everypony around them to gallop away and hide inside their houses as well.
* ThemeNaming: Named for their flower cutie marks. They even lament the loss of their flower gardens in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]".

'''Speaking Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]"

An elderly Earth pony who has a goatee and wears a funny looking hat. Mr. Greenhooves has non-speaking appearances in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters Boast Busters]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]", and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E1TheReturnOfHarmonyPart1 The Return of Harmony - Part 1]]". In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion Apple Family Reunion]]", he appears in two shots respectively at the hoedown and later, but isn't included in the family photo. He was designed as "Hayseed Pony" by Ridd Sorensen.

* BadassGrandpa: He's old and he has seen better days. That doesn't stop him from pulling from a heavy cart at galloping speed.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" suggests he is this on an even higher level than Fluttershy.
* RoadsideWave: He accidentally splashes mud on Twilight Sparkle when running by with his cart in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]".
* ShoutOut: [[http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Greenhooves#cite_note-0 His hat is a shout out]] to one of Creator/CraigMcCracken's works called ''[[http://www.craigmccracken.net/ Wander Over Yonder]]''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: His original design included a corncob pipe to chew and smoke. Of course Creator/{{Hasbro}} didn't like the idea of a smoking pony, so the pipe was axed and replaced by a hay straw. (The corncob pipe was meant to explode and shoot popcorn at random as Mr. Greenhooves casually smoked around.)

'''Speaking Appearance:''' (Lotus Blossom) "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]"

Four blue-eyed ponies who work at Ponyville's Day Spa. [[AllThereInTheScript Lotus Blossom]], the first one, debuts at the end of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip Bridle Gossip]]" asking Zecora for the bath recipe. She returns in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", which introduces the other three: [[AllThereInTheScript Aloe]], a PaletteSwap of Lotus Blossom; "[[FanNickname Quake]]", a large masseuse; and "[[FanNickname Roxie]]", who first appears as one of Photo Finish's helpers and isn't seen working at the spa until "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend in Deed]]", which also features Lotus Blossom and Aloe. Lotus Blossom and "Quake" appear again in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential Ponyville Confidential]]".

* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Lotus and Aloe.
* {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s: Lotus and Aloe.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Aloe.
* {{Expy}}: Lotus Blossom and Aloe appear to be based on the twins of the G1 [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Surprise_Twins_Pony Surprise Twins Pony]] and/or on the G2 twins [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Rose_and_Lily Rose and Lily]].
* FlowerMotif: Lotus Blossom and Aloe's cutie mark is a white lotus, a flower commonly associated with spas.
* HairDecorations: Lotus Blossom and Aloe's matching hairbands.
* MythologyGag: Lotus Blossom's accent, if she and Aloe are indeed based on one or both of the Europe-exclusive previous-gen pony twins mentioned under {{Expy}} above.
* OCStandIn: Lotus and Aloe are depicted by fans as inseparable twin sisters. A lot of TwinTropes are often used for their fanon characterization.
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp They Are All Grown Up]]: Considering Lotus Blossom and Aloe ''were'' based on baby pony twins...
* UnexplainedAccent: The show doesn't really reveal or explain much about why Lotus Blossom has that accent.
* [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent What The Hay Is That Accent?]]: Lotus Blossom's accent seems to be an odd mix of Indian and German. [[SensualSlavs Slavic perhaps]]?
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: Aloe.

'''Speaking Appearance:''' ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' Issue #9 story ''Zen and the Art of Gazebo Repair'' and Issue #10 cover A

An [[http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/FEFDE7/ off-white]] unicorn with a [[http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/3366CC/ two]]-[[http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/18E7E7/ tone]] electric blue mane, [[http://www.perbang.dk/rgb/BF1D79/ magenta]] eyes, and a pair of eighth notes as her cutie mark. Her five in-show appearances to date are in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E14SuitedForSuccess "Suited for Success"]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2"]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure "Magical Mystery Cure"]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E13SimpleWays "Simple Ways"]] and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E22TestingTesting123 "Testing Testing 1, 2, 3"]], the first two and last of which have her, well, act as a DJ. She's ''very'' popular for a character with less than a minute (in the first season, only a few seconds) of screentime. She shows up a lot in advertisements and official merchandise, and has multiple toys, even being made 2013 Special Edition Pony. [[AllThereInTheManual According to her and Octavia's trading card]], "DJ Pon-3 feels at home behind her turntable, laying down sick beats and wearing her trademark sunglasses."

An analysis on Vinyl "DJ Pon-3" Scratch is available on [[Analysis/FriendshipIsMagicBackgroundPonies the analysis page]].

* AllThereInTheManual: DJ Pon-3's properly-lit colors have also been mentioned by WordOfGod and shown on the [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=256161614401283 Comic-Con 2011 poster]]/[[http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.262953797055398.84804.118429394841173 desktop background]], in the {{Web Game|s}} ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlpfim-dj-pinkie-pie DJ Pinkie Pie]]'', and [[http://wedding.mylittlepony.com/Pony-Wedding-Music-Game.html on]] Hasbro's ''Pony Wedding'' microsite.
* AscendedExtra:
** She's one of the seven brushable toys in the ''Friendship Is Magic Favorite Collection'' from the Toys "R" Us exclusive ''Collector Series'', and she's even [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=526570387357208 apparently]] going to be one of Funrise's plush toys. She and Octavia also share [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391355776 a trading card]].
** She appears in the movie ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. Also, when the official Hub website held a poll for who would be the 7th pony cut-out, DJ Pon-3 [[WolverinePublicity was the only background pony that you could vote for.]] Her role in ''MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' appears more significant, given that one of the prequel shorts is dedicated on her, and the merch for the film includes her car (as well as the fact the film is based on a BattleOfTheBands theme).
* AscendedFanon: Despite never appearing in the same in-show scene[[note]]or even the same ''episode'', until [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]][[/note]], it would seem that DJ Pon-3's and Octavia Melody's association with one another in fanon was strong enough to cause them to appear together on [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0wQ3P2KlvG0/UBC0JdFSOxI/AAAAAAAAlQk/rOtEZNzVtPE/s1600/Tavi+and+Scratch.jpg one of Enterplay's trading cards]], using the {{Stage Name|s}} DJ Pon-3 and actually using the name Octavia (quite possibly one of the first official uses of that name, barring the [=WeLoveFine=] shirts). The [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-N3U86TvSa2w/UBC2aPBHCLI/AAAAAAAAlQs/kx0-zDtvOBA/s1600/Tavi+and+Scratch+back.jpg info on the back of the card]] also takes many cues from fanon, as it highlights their differences in musical styles and suggests that they ''might'' know each other as either friends or rivals.
** Pay close attention to the [[FunnyBackgroundEvent background, where she and Octavia are]] [[http://images.wikia.com/mlp/images/4/4c/Season_2_cast_poster.jpg on this season 2 poster.]] [[VitriolicBestBuds You can see DJ Pon-3 actively messing with Octavia.]]
** The first time within any story thus far where they're in the same place, same time is [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries Rarity's micro comic]] where they're both present early on at a party... in which DJ Pon-3 is busy playing music while [[SubvertedTrope Octavia is hanging out with Lyra Heartstrings & Pinkie Pie instead]].
** Her special foil Series 2 Enterplay card (From the MLPFaire 2013) calls to Vinyl Scratch being her real name and DJ Pon-3 as her {{Stage Name|s}}, which is how the fandom has usually explained these names. As the cards [[RunningTheAsylum were written with help from the fans]] and Hasbro itself doesn't use that name, Vinyl Scratch is of doubtful canon, at best.
** The same card also lists "wubs" as one of her "Likes".
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Both her {{Stage Name|s}} and her real name.
* CheatedAngle: Her mane isn't symmetrical at all, yet it's always drawn the same way whether she's facing left or right, as otherwise it would cover most of her face half of the time.
* [[CoolBigSis Cool Big Bro]]: Issues #11 and #12 of the IDW comic (taking place in flashback when Shining Armor and Cadance were in high school) includes a filly Vinyl watching Shining's show [[spoiler:and getting her cutie mark]] atop the back of a white-coated, red-maned (styled similar to Vinyl's) unicorn stallion with a vinyl record-and-note cutie mark; later, he is DJ'ing the school dance under the stage name "33 1/3-LP". Andy Price, the artist, affirmed this was Vinyl's older brother. The fandom has taken the names "Long Play" (what LP expands to) or "Smooth Beat" as his given name, but all agree he's in the same class of cool as Vinyl.
* CoolShades: Purple ones with black rims that obscure her eyes. Have led to {{Fanon}} and various speculations until "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]".
* DependingOnTheArtist: Her eyes outside of the show have gone back and forth between magenta and red. Colorist Heather Breckel gave Vinyl red eyes in her cameo in [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries Rarity's Micro comic]] as an intentional FandomNod and [[http://boards.idwpublishing.com/3/viewtopic.php?p=335260#p335260 commented]] that if Vinyl ever has a more significant role (where Breckel is the colorist), she'll give Vinyl her canon eye color.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Assuming that one takes the Interplay cards as canon, then she prefers DJ Pon-3 over Vinyl Scratch to the point that most ponies haven't even heard of the name. Hasbro's official releases don't use that name at all.
* HeavyMetalUmlaut: Her "Vinyl Scratch" name [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/06/mlp-licensing-expo-2012-images-from.html has been]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS spelled as]] "Vın̈yl Scratch" as part of a ShoutOut to ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap''.
* LeetLingo: Her {{Stage Name|s}} "DJ Pon-3".
* LifeOfTheParty: Based on her latest appearance, she seems to be just as party loving as Pinkie is (though not as eccentric and wild as her).
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a DJ pony with [[TheRockStar rock star-like qualities]] who, aside from being a stage performing DJ, is also [[LargeHamRadio an eccentric radio host]][[note]]Thanks to the ''Fanfic/TheVinylScratchTapes''[[/note]] who is VitriolicBestBuds with Octavia due to their [[OddFriendship differing taste in music and lifestyle]] and their [[RedOniBlueOni contrasting (fanon) personalities]].
** Depicting her with [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] was also prominent until the Canterlot Wedding 2-parter came along, and even after, many people still prefer that color.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]], most of which was made before "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]" gave her a canon eye color.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS:
** "DJ Pon-3" has been used by Hasbro ([[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=381668998517210 on]] [[https://twitter.com/MyLittlePony/status/168396065052172289 their]] ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' {{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}}) and by her and Octavia's [[TheMerch trading card]], while "DJ Pon3" has been used by TheHub (in their commercial ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43yodRbQrd4 There's a Pony For That]]''); these two spellings and more have been used by Mighty Fine's [[TheMerch merchandise]] and its various listings.
** "Vinyl Scratch" has been used by [[TheMerch Mighty Fine]]'s online store [=WeLoveFine=], while "Vın̈yl Scratch" has been used [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/06/mlp-licensing-expo-2012-images-from.html at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2012]] (as part of a ShoutOut to ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap'').
* ShoutOut: Her {{Stage Name|s}} "DJ Pon-3" is a reference to how [=DJs=] often use {{Awesome McCoolname}}s and XtremeKoolLetterz as their StageNames. [[note]]And originally to {{Music/deadmau5}} in particular.[[/note]]
* StageNames: Formerly a SuddenNameChange, her two names were eventually officially made a case of this, with "DJ Pon-3" being a stage name and "Vinyl Scratch" being her real name.
* WolverinePublicity: She managed to hit that rare sweet spot where she's very popular among the fans for her striking design and cool job, and she's popular enough with Hasbro that she gets to appear in a number of places like merchandise and other promotional material. Her human counterpart from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' even made it into the trailer, not even Derpy can claim that.
** It doesn't end there. She appears as a UsefulNotes/McDonalds Happy Meal toy, and she appears ''in place of Applejack''.
** Still more publicity: [[http://youtu.be/qh7j1qUaGOc This video]] from Hasbro, promoting ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', is all about DJ Pon-3.
* WordOfGod: As described by storyboardist Sabrina "Sibsy" Alberghetti, DJ Pon-3's creation was atypical. The storyboardists would normally pull from a pool of established characters or the otherwise dozen-some background characters if they need to fill a scene. For "Suited For Success", the storyboardist, Mike West, needed to include a DJ of some type which was not yet offered in the pool, and sketched out the preliminary version of DJ Pon-3. The design was cleaned up and made into a character. Alberghetti has stated that she since then has tried to insert the character any chance she gets, including the numerous appearances of her human version in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]''.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: And it's one of the coolest manes in the show.

A classy gray earth pony with a pink treble clef cutie mark. She plays [[AllThereInTheManual the cello]] as part of quartet performances at Canterlot's Grand Galloping Gala and garden party, respectively during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]", and also cameos in at least two issues of IDW's ''Friendship is Magic'' [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic book series]]. After her debut, fans loved her classy look and initial deadpan reaction to Pinkie Pie on stage so much that she's become one of the most popular musician ponies. [[AllThereInTheManual According to her and DJ Pon-3's trading card]], "You can find Octavia at garden parties and galas performing prim and proper classical music on her cello."

An analysis on Octavia is available on [[{{Analysis/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} the analysis page]].

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She's just not Octavia without that bowtie and white collar.
* AllThereInTheManual: Octavia's instrument being a cello has also been mentioned by WordOfGod and listed in the keywords of [=WeLoveFine's=] pages for Mighty Fine's [[TheMerch merchandise]].
** The last name "Melody" is based on Hasbro's promotional literature for its 2013 MLP toy line.
* AscendedExtra: She's [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assetsuitcase/characters/MLP_CharV_WhomeverThisIs.swf included]] in the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/play/details.cfm?R=0F6B55AF-5056-900B-1013-CD724A8D4018:en_US Card Creator]]'' game on Hasbro and TheHub's websites. She and DJ Pon-3 also share [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391355776 a trading card]]. Octavia also has a plush toy of her available.
* AscendedFanon: See DJ Pon-3 above.
* BowtiesAreCool: She's always wearing a pink one. She even wears it while wearing a toga at a party!
* ElegantClassicalMusician: She's certainly got the look of one, and her trading card suggests she's one.
* ImpracticalMusicalInstrumentSkills: How does she even ''play'' her cello with her hooves anyway?
* LeadBassist: She's the most popular member of the band. She even takes the lead (with the camera focused on her) on their second appearance in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]".
* [[NobodyLovesTheBassist Nopony Loves The Bassist]]: Inverted. So much so that the fandom pays little to no attention to the rest of her band, which has led to her appearing in out-of-show media without any of her bandmates.
* NotSoStoic: Her appearances in the show have thus far show her being mostly calm and professional, only scowling slightly when Pinkie ruins her cello. However, the comics have shown her having fun at a party (which Vinyl Scratch is [=DJing=]), being a badass when time calls, and being downright ''grumpy'' when the Cutie Mark Crusaders steal her band's cart complete with RedEyesTakeWarning.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a [[TheStoic stoic]] ElegantClassicalMusician who is VitriolicBestBuds with Vinyl Scratch due to their [[OddFriendship differing taste in music and lifestyle]] and their [[RedOniBlueOni contrasting (fanon) personalities]].
** She was also suspected to be one of Pinkie Pie's sister, [[FanNickname Inkie Pie]], all grown up due to their similarities in color scheme until it was {{jossed}} by WordOfGod.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Her icon in Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' game uses [[http://fav.me/d3gd5mi fanart]] of her as a filly.

Just because Octavia Melody's [[FaceOfTheBand the most well known]] doesn't mean the fans have forgotten her bandmates. In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver her first appearance]], Octavia is seen playing with a male piano player (Frederick Horseshoepin), a female sousaphone player (Beauty Brass) and a male harp player (Parish Nandermane). Parish returns with Octavia in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" alongside new bandmates: two violin players (one male and one female) though there aren't any widely accepted nicknames for them yet. The Gala band also has a country music counterpart that plays in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]" and (minus the piano player) "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion Apple Family Reunion]]".

* {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s: All of them, Octavia included, wear white collars and bowties. This seems to be their standard "attire" of sorts.
* AllThereInTheScript: Frederick, Beauty and Parish's names are only shown in Gameloft's mobile game.
* AscendedFanon: Their [[FanNickname Fan Nicknames]] were made official by Gameloft's mobile game, with just a few differences.[[note]]"Frederick Horseshoepin" was changed from "Frederic Horseshoepin" and "Parish Nandermane" was changed from "Harpo Parish Nadermane".[[/note]]

Derpy [[AllThereInTheScript Hooves]] is a grey Pegasus with a cluster of bubbles as her cutie mark. She is, quite simply, the ''ultimate'' [[EnsembleDarkhorse darkhorse pony]] in a series overflowing with them. Derpy was "born" when she was drawn making a face in the background of the first episode[[note]](according to a layout artist, she was posed this way on purpose but meant to be hidden behind another pony; a later tweak revealed her face)[[/note]]. Her unusual expression proved phenomenally popular with the [[PeripheryDemographic brony fans]] who nicknamed her "Derpy Hooves" and quickly turned her into a [[MemeticMutation meme]]. The animators started giving her own scripted scenes in Season 2, and the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup "The Last Roundup"]] [[SuddenlyVoiced gave her lines]] and ([[OrwellianRetcon in the original version]]) referred to her on-screen as "Derpy."

She's also known as "Ditzy Doo" by a lot of fans (and, very rarely, by [[TheMerch Mighty Fine]]'s online store [=WeLoveFine=]), after a character mentioned in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E11WinterWrapUp "Winter Wrap Up"]], who LaurenFaust had considered using Derpy's design for. In fact, [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/02/amy-keating-rogers-response-to-derpy.html according to Amy Keating Rogers]], the first draft of "The Last Roundup" did in fact use the name "Ditzy Doo" until she was asked to change it to "Derpy" as a FandomNod. The character is also known as "Bubbles" as well, though this name is much less official than either of her other names. However, after reactions from "The Last Roundup", her name was quickly scrubbed from post-release of the episode, and avoided in the official merch, though still making numerous items with her on it. If they have to name her, she is generally given the title of "Best Pony". The issue is avoided entirely on an official toy set that includes a brushable Derpy - where the name for Derpy would be is instead a picture of a muffin. Hot Topic has started releasing licensed Derpy-themed merch with the trademarked name "Muffins".

Regardless of her name or [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation how she's depicted by fans]], for better or worse she's become the mascot of the brony community.

More analysis on Derpy is available on [[{{Analysis/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} the analysis page]].

%%* [[{{Adorkable}} Aderpable]]
* AllThereInTheManual: Two AscendedFanon things about Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo:
** Her [[http://content.usatoday.com/communities/popcandy/post/2012/05/exclusive-preview-the-2012-special-edition-my-little-pony/1 toy's box]] and several pieces of licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]] have both referenced muffins being her TrademarkFavoriteFood, to the point where the muffin is used instead of providing her name (see intro). In the show, she's merely one of several ponies who gathered at the free muffin sample spectacular during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" (others of whom were licking their lips or even drooling) and may or may not have said "muffin" while at said gathering (see BeamMeUpScotty below). However, in the second opening and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve Hearth's Warming Eve]]" she appears riding in the Friendship Express Train's Ice Cream Train Car (which in the show looks more a cupcake or a muffin), and she wore a saddlebag with a muffin-shaped clip during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]". In the first issue of the IDW comic, she is seen being lured into a trap by a trail of muffins. In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', she's seen during the "Helping Twilight Win The Crown" song and on the last page of the credits dancing with a muffin.
** Licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]] has also referenced her being a mailmare. In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" she's part of a team of pegasi unloading packages from a truck, but neither she nor the other members of the team are wearing any of the mailpony uniforms that would later be shown in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E11FamilyAppreciationDay Family Appreciation Day]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]", and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", and WordOfGod has [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/02/fim-layout-guy-answering-questions-on.html called]] the team a moving company. The Rarity Micro-series issue and the cover for the ninth issue has illustrated Derpy as a mailmare, as well. In ''My Little Pony: Equestria Girls'', humanized Derpy is at one point seen walking with a letter in hand (during the cafeteria song), though the way she's blushing, it might be that she got then letter as opposed to delivering it.
* AlliterativeName: ''D''itzy ''D''oo.
* AscendedExtra: Went from being just another background pony to getting her own scripted scenes and having her FanNickname become AscendedFanon (in the original version of "The Last Roundup"). She's also [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharH_Derpy.swf included]] in the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/play/details.cfm?R=5B309E58-5056-900B-1040-324367303E14:en_US Castle Creator]]'' game on Hasbro and TheHub's websites, and was [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_DH_definitely_canon.swf included]] in the Christmas version of the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/play/details.cfm?R=0F6B55AF-5056-900B-1013-CD724A8D4018:en_US Card Creator]]'' game on Hasbro's website (but was DummiedOut along with the game's other Christmas assets once the game was switched to the Valentine version). She even has a Fashion Style size toy as the 2012 special edition pony, making her the only background pony to receive that size of toy (the only others are the Mane Six, the three Princesses, and Shining Armor) as well as the first and so far only special edition pony to be part of G4 (the special editions had previously stuck to being G3 ponies).
* AscendedFanon: The episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]" sealed the deal by making her fan-made shape and behavior and (in the original version) part of her FanNickname fully canon. The fandom definitely rejoiced. (So naturally, when the edited version of the episode removed any mention of her name and re-recorded her voice, there was much backlash to be had. It's calmed down for the most part, thankfully, though there are still a handful that refuse to let bygones be bygones.) She's had more AscendedFanon in the licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]].
** The IDW comic officially made her a mailmare and even gave her a uniform to seal the deal.
** Issue #10 of the IDW comic used a mailbox with the name "D. Hooves" to show where she was currently living.
* AssKicksYou: She knocks down one of the Town Hall's support beams and later breaks the Hall's floor, just with her ''butt.''
** And let it be known that the latter happened when she merely sat down. Clearly Derpy has a [[UnusualEuphemism plot]] of steel. [[note]] The fandom's word for "butt," which originated from an image poking fun at people who watch it for the plot.[[/note]]
* BackForTheFinale: After being OutOfFocus during Season 03, Derpy finally managed to return for the season finale episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]". She even winks at the audience, lampshading the whole situation.
* BadassAdorable: [[WildMassGuessing Implied]] because she was able to break through solid wood just by sitting on it.
* BeamMeUpScotty: Possibly; she's only one of three ponies whose lip flaps match [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usYRXYdBG30 the famous "muffin" line]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" (the other two being Sea Swirl and Minuette). It isn't clear which of them are saying the line (or if it's meant to represent all three). And since background ponies generally don't have consistent voices, that can't be used to narrow it down.
* CastHerd: In Season 1 she's often seen alongside fellow pegasi Parasol/Showers and [[PaletteSwap Raindrops]], both sharing her famous "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" scene with her. In Season 2 she's usually, if seen with somepony else, with Golden Harvest or Dr. Hooves in various {{Fandom Nod}}s.
* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: Probably the biggest consequence of the "Derpygate" affair is that any official merchandise doesn't refer to her by any name. Instead they use descriptions, pictures or just leave the field where a name would be blank. Which makes the controversy around her all the more glaring.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both pale blond.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Her clumsiness wrecked townhall in "The Last Round Up"
* DelayedReaction:
** During a collective {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", hers is a bit later than the rest of the crowd's.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]], Iron Will's odd money-back guarantee initially confuses ponies, but then causes them to laugh. When he gives the crowd a stern glare, most of them immediately stop laughing. Guess who doesn't.
* [[DemotedToExtra Demoted Back To Extra]]: Derpy's appearances have been "scared off" by the controversy surrounding her one speaking role in the show, and she only appears in a handful of non-speaking background cameos in season 3. She is also in an awkward position where she is known as "Derpy" by the fanbase, the studio staff and Hasbro, but are [[TheScottishTrope unable to really be called that]] on the show itself for fear of MoralGuardians coming down on them (and calling her by any ''other'' name, such as Ditzy, would just end up reigniting the controversy anyway.) Later merchandise and the ExpandedUniverse have avoided referring to her by any name.
** According to WordOfGod, however, she is now technically considered a "secondary character", along with Vinyl, as when questioned on the lack of background ponies in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]], a layout artist of the movie said that there were no background ponies in the movie, and only secondary characters like Cheerilee were included. Considering this, and the fact that it's been confirmed by the team that Derpy will make appearances in Season 4, it's safe to say that she'll be out of the DemotedToExtra category soon enough.
** As of season 4, she has a good sized (though still non-speaking) role in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E10RainbowFalls Rainbow Falls]]," as Rainbow Dash's emergency replacement. Subsequent episodes also return to featuring her in very visible background roles, as was the case in season 2.
* TheDitz: A walking (or flying) disaster area. First implied from the annoyed look on her supervisor's face when she accidentally pummels Twilight with everything but the kitchen sink in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" and when she accidentally drains the barrel of water and apples in "Luna Eclipsed". Confirmed in "The Last Roundup" as she demolishes Ponyville's city hall while she was helping Rainbow Dash to hang some banners on it. She breaks the floor and drags Rainbow Dash to the hall's basement with her, literally by sitting there and doing nothing as ordered.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: A subtle example can be found in her appearance in "The Last Roundup". She was strong enough to inadvertently knock over a wooden support beam, drag Rainbow Dash down a hole and break through a solid floor by sitting on it too hard.
* DumbBlonde: Sometimes. Apparently confirmed by "The Last Roundup".
* {{Expy}}: Derpy has been [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7768176/1/Equestria_Songbook compared to]] G1 Applejack, and has also been compared to Minty, G3's resident CuteClumsyGirl who was also voiced by TabithaStGermain. Appearance-wise, Derpy's a lot like G3 Earth pony Bubblecup, which has lead to some fans adopting that as an alternative name for her, and she shares a cutie mark with G1 Bubbles, one of the first six My Little Pony toys!
* FandomNod: After the production crew caught on to Derpy's darkhorse status, they used her to insert simple events that acknowledged fandom activities, like muffins and possibly the Dr. Hooves theory.
* FishEyes: Surprisingly enough [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] most of the time (her eyes face inward more often than outward), but played straight for brief moments in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E18TheShowStoppers The Show Stoppers]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000]]".
* ForWantOfANail: The story behind her original appearance is that an animator crossed her eyes for his/her own amusement, then attempted to put another pony in front of her to obscure the abnormality. However, during rendering, the other pony glitched, revealing Derpy to the world. If that pony hadn't failed to render, we wouldn't have one of the most iconic ponies in the fandom.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Her very expression [[http://www.moondancerdreaming.com/images/random/Derpy1.png in the first episode]] and in later episodes following "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]". Spotting her is a WheresWaldo-esque game for fans.
* [[HeroOfAnotherStory Heroine of Another Story]][=/=]NoodleIncident: Derpy must have a ''very'' interesting life. Among other things, she has her own private suite in the Friendship Express Train's Ice Cream Train Car, she's entered flying competitions, hung out in Fluttershy's chicken coop, is somehow able to freely converse with the Canterlot elite wearing only a pearl necklace and her [[MemeticMutation paper bag wizard]] getup from Nightmare Night, got turned into a filly for a day, and was ''shrunken and imprisoned in a snowglobe owned by someone who just moved into Ponyville as of that episode.''
** Fanon mostly chalks the stranger things up to adventures with Dr. Hooves/Time Turner.
* IHaveManyNames: Although Derpy is the most common name, she has also been referred to as Ditzy Doo, and Hot Topic's website also offers the name "Bubbles." This is necessary since the most common name, "Derpy", is seen as offensive to some.
* KindheartedSimpleton: Probably the most common interpretation of Derpy's character as a whole.
* TheKlutz: During "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" she drops several items of furniture from a delivery truck in comical fashion on Twilight Sparkle's head, while during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]" she partially destroys Ponyville's city hall, which later becomes an important part of the plot.
* LarynxDissonance: Her DelayedReaction {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" is either this or VocalDissonance (it's unknown whether she was voiced by a woman or a man in that episode).
* MeaningfulName: Both of her names (which are also UnfortunateNames).
** Her name "Derpy", as well as being a reference to her googly eyes, deals with being idiotic, since she is canonically a [[TheDitz ditz]].
** Her other name "Ditzy Doo" also references her [[TheDitz ditz]]iness (and by its original definition, [[HaveAGayOldTime unlike the name "Derpy"]]).
* LineOfSightName: The alternate name "Bubbles." Because she has bubbles! The name "Derpy" was coined because of her wonky eyes.
* MindScrew: When Apple Bloom is demonstrating her hoop talent in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]]", one of the blank-flanked school background fillies appears to be Derpy Hooves, down to her wings, hair color and style and her crossed eyes of gold. [[WildMassGuessing Your guess is as good as ours]].
* NiceGirl: She's friendly and likes to help other ponies like Rainbow Dash, [[StopHelpingMe just a shame she's so clumsy]].
* {{No Name Given}}: After the name "Derpy" was used as a FandomNod, it was discovered that it had offensive connotations (it has had use as a slur against the disabled). As a result, she's now not referred to by any name in media and merchandise. This would make it extremely difficult to use her in situations outside of cameos and merchandise of her have to use workarounds such as descriptions, pictures or leaving the field blank.
* NoodleIncident: How she destroyed the town hall roof. According to a DeletedScene, it was hit by lightning due to a weather control mistake.
* NoSenseOfDirection: In "Winter Wrap Up" it's mentioned that Ditzy Doo tried going ''north'' to fetch the southern birds (after going west the previous year).
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a [[TheDitz ditzy]], muffin loving mail mare with an uncanny ability to ignore physics and/or do impossible things (often for laughs). She is best friends with Golden Harvest/Carrot Top who she often goes to to eat her home baked muffins which often ends up emptying the entire contents of her fridge. She also has two daughters (Fire Chief and Amethyst Star) and is a frequent companion of the time lord pony, Dr. Hooves/Time Turner, who may or may not be the father of her daughters.
* OffModel: What she started out as[[note]]sort of; the animator crossed her eyes intentionally, but they would've been obscured to the audience had a different pony not glitched during rendering[[/note]]. Now the animators draw her with her eyes facing the wrong directions ''[[FandomNod intentionally]]''.
* OutOfFocus: In Season 3, she's only seen in the background in four of the thirteen episodes. The controversy must have gotten to Hasbro really, really hard. Thankfully she returned in season 4 in a big way.
* RunningGag[=/=]OncePerEpisode: Starting in the second season, Derpy has appeared in some sort of wacky scene or random cameo. In season 3 she only appeared in general crowd scenes until the SeasonFinale "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]". After that [[spoiler: get a couple appearances by herself as a human in ''Equestria Girls.'']]
* TheScottishTrope: Her most common name, "Derpy" has ended up as a meta-example.
* ShockAndAwe: She made lighting from a storm cloud strike town hall by [[PluckyGirl bouncing up and down on it]].
* SimpletonVoice: In the original version, although apparently not intentionally.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Mighty Fine's online store [=WeLoveFine=] has very rarely misspelled her names in the keywords of their [[TheMerch merchandise]]'s pages:
** "Derpy Whooves" (''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1627 My Bad BUTTON]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1669 shirt and button]], ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1709 Misunderstood]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1710 shirt]])
** "Ditsy Doo" (''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1723 What Went Wrong]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1724 shirt]])
* SuddenlyVoiced: Derpy Hooves has no clear lines until [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup "The Last Roundup"]] (if her gasp in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor "Green Isn't Your Color"]] isn't counted as a line).
* TooManyCooksSpoilTheSoup: Probably the core reason as to why Derpy failed to be integrated into the show properly. Unlike the mane 6, who were all had their attributes, personalities and relationships all thought up by a single person (Creator/LaurenFaust), Derpy's attributes were developed by many many people independently from one another (fans, the studio and even Hasbro itself), as if they were all playing a game of Telephone. When no one can really agree on how intelligent she should be, you're asking for trouble.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Muffins. Mostly AllThereInTheManual, but during "Putting Your Hoof Down", she is seen with a muffin-shaped clasp on her saddlebag--most ponies have clasps shaped like their own cutie marks. The box of her 2012 special edition toy seals the deal by including numerous muffins, including replacing the "0" in the "2012" with a muffin. The back of the Fan Favorites seven-pony set, which includes Derpy, replaces her name with a muffin.
** The ExpandedUniverse gets in on the act too: in ''Literature/TwilightSparkleAndTheCrystalHeartSpell'', Derpy stops by a pastry stand Mr. Cake has set up and asks for some muffins.
** The IDW comic also runs with this idea and dedicated her a full page where a couple of Changelings lure her into a trap using a trail of muffins. In the Nightmare Forces arc (5-8), she's angry defending her stash of muffins. Some comic covers also put her and her favorite food together.
** Her main appearance in the final credits of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' has her holding up a muffin.
** To sum it up, her love of muffins is probably the one part of her character that practically everyone can agree with.
* UnfortunateNames: Both of her names (which are also {{Meaningful Name}}s).
** Her name "Derpy", as well as being a reference to her googly eyes, deals with being idiotic, silly, or klutzy, since she is canonically a [[TheDitz ditz]]. (Hence why any mention of it was removed from the edited version. This apparently owes to an increasing use of "Derpy" to mean "retarded", which Amy Rogers acknowledged.)
** Her other name "Ditzy Doo" also references her [[TheDitz ditz]]iness (and by its original definition, [[HaveAGayOldTime unlike the name "Derpy"]]).
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Tabitha St. Germain apparently thought Derpy was a ''boy'' on the day she came in to record her lines for the original version of "The Last Roundup", and wasn't told otherwise, though [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=84605&view=findpost&p=1996720 the voice was probably adjusted a bit in post production to be just a little higher than what was in the original recording]]. This resulted in Derpy sounding androgynous or young-boyish, but still female. (The edited version of the episode gives her a different, much more feminine-sounding voice.)
* VagueAge: She's been an adult in the past (like other background ponies), and a filly in both the past and present. [[MindScrew Your guess is as good as ours.]]
* ValleyGirl: Sounds like this in the edited version.
* VocalDissonance:
** Her DelayedReaction {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" is either this or LarynxDissonance (it's unknown whether she was voiced by a woman or a man in that episode).
** In the original version of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]", she sounds ''very'' tomboy-ish, almost like a young boy. According to [[http://derpyhoovesnews.com/tabitha-st-germain-clarifies-a-little-bit-on-derpys-voice/ this]], the voice actress wasn't aware that Derpy was a girl (though according to [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=84605&view=findpost&p=1996720 this]], the voice was probably adjusted a bit in post production to be just a little higher than what was in the original recording). Considering Derpy's original googly-eyed expression and resultant popularity came into being due to an accident (while the expression was intentional, she wasn't meant to be visible in that scene), it seems fitting that other aspects of her would come about due to accidents.
* TheVoiceless: Her next big appearance in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E10RainbowFalls Rainbow Falls]]" has her not talking at all, most likely to avoid another controversy.
* WalkingDisasterArea: She can cause property damage just by ''sitting down''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Amy Keating Rogers revealed that in the original version of the song "Smile Smile Smile" Pinkie Pie was meant to refer to Derpy as "Derpy Doo". They even were going to sing about Derpy following Pinkie's advice and asking Zecora for a brew to cure her cough.
** An early draft of "The Last Roundup" referred to Derpy as "Ditzy Doo", though the name was changed in order to give a ShoutOut to the fans. Before this, according to Lauren Faust, Ditzy Doo and the gray pegasus were not initially intended to be the same character, though she ''did'' consider having the design used for Ditzy. Alternative names for the pegasus from the season 1 Philippines crew included: "Stoneface", "Bubbles", "Ditzy", and "Bubblehead".

A chubby gray earth pony colt introduced in Season 2, he's become something of a recurring background character in CMC episodes. Most likely introduced to show that Cheerilee's school does in fact have colts beyond Snips & Snails. Before Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame gave Truffle Shuffle his DummiedOut AllThereInTheScript name (originally a FanNickname referencing "Chunk" from ''Film/TheGoonies''), he was given multiple {{Fan Nickname}}s, including Butterball and Chowder.

* AllThereInTheManual: Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame, updated to 1.01 on Dec 20 2012 for iOS users and later for Android users, includes Truffle Shuffle, referring to him as "Teacher's Pet" (his name is AllThereInTheScript, as it's DummiedOut) and stating that "This little pony loves food more than anything, and he's got a knife and fork as a cutie mark!"

[[folder:The Crystal Ponies]]
-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 The Crystal Empire - Part 1]]"

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NicoleOliver (Crystal Pony #1), Creator/TabithaStGermain (Crystal Pony #2), Creator/CathyWeseluck (Crystal Pony #3 & Librarian), and Creator/AndrewFrancis (Crystal Pony #4)

The denizens of the Crystal Empire. They were a peaceful and loving race before the rise of King Sombra, who enslaved them and made their lives miserable. When not depressed they have sparkling coats and crystalline manes, and their most valued tradition is a fair that powers their most sacred relic the Crystal Heart, which makes them (and non-Crystal Ponies) even more sparkly. As of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", they've also been seen in Ponyville and Canterlot.

* AndIMustScream: The Crystal Ponies were kept as Sombra's Slave Race, and have spent the last thousand years after his defeat with no contact with the outside world and stuck in a state of despair and unhappiness. Worsening it is the fact that they have no memory of the time before that, meaning all they could remember during that time was being his slaves.
* [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness Dull Coats of Unhappiness]]: Before being revived, the crystal ponies have washed out color schemes to go with their depressed voices.
* EternalEnglish: Despite being gone for 1000 years they have no problem speaking Modern Equestrian (or whatever it is that ponies speak), even though Princess Luna ''did'' have problems. Maybe it was just royalty that spoke differently back then.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: And the Crystal Heart gives them ''even more sparkles''!
* ExpressiveHair: Their ''entire bodies''. When sad they have dull colors and plain manes, when happy and full of hope they sparkle and for some of them their hair style changes to emphasize this.
* FanNickname: Voted-on names, through the /listofponies/ subreddit and the FiM wiki, for the characters are Autumn Gem (female, blue coat, purple hair, Nicole), Fleur de Verre (female, light coat, purple hair, Tabitha), Paradise (female, purple coat, blue hair, Cathy), Night Knight (male, blue, Andrew), Agatha (the librarian; Cathy), Crystal Arrow (male, white coat, blue hair), Amber Waves (female, purple coat, brown hair), and "Castle" (light blue coat, yellow hair). Other characters have been given names by fans, but they did not speak.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Gone for 1000 years, and at first they don't even remember what happened before that!
* FleurDeLis: Various colors of these are one of their cutie mark designs.
* [[spoiler:TheDogBitesBack]]: [[spoiler:After being abused and enslaved by him, they power up the Crystal Heart when the opportunity presents itself and blow King Sombra into oblivion.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: King Sombra put a spell on them that made them forget what life was like before his rule, though they start to remember as they cheer up.
* NoNameGiven: None of them have names, the credits just list the ones that talked as Crystal Ponies 1-4 and "Librarian".[[note]]Interestingly enough, "The Crystal Empire" is the first time incidental characters have had their VA's listed in the credits.[[/note]]
* OffModel: Their eye reflections don't always stay polygonal, occasionally switching to the rounded style of other ponies'.
* PaletteSwap: If even that--one of the two Crystal Pony fillies shown as part of Princess Celestia's projection of the Crystal Empire in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 The Crystal Empire - Part 1]]" is nearly a Crystal Pony version of Apple Bloom, complete with recolored bow.
* SlaveRace: King Sombra treated them as this during his rule 1000 years ago.
* ToylessToylineCharacter: There are toys of ten other ponies in Crystal Pony form, but no toys of any natural Crystal Ponies.
* YouAreNumberSix: Most of the ones listed in the show's credits, though they presumably aren't numbered in-universe.

-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 The Return of Harmony - Part 2]]"

A pink earth pony who briefly appears in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 The Return of Harmony - Part 2]]" floating across the screen during Discord's reign of chaos. She appeared to be more of a silly pony than dear Derpy and that's saying quite a bit. Her cutie mark is [[TalkingWithSigns a machine screw and a baseball]], leading naturally to the FanNickname "Screwball". Given that she showed up as a visual gag it's unknown if she'll ever appear again in the show, but a pony that makes a goofy face doesn't get away from ''this'' fandom. She eventually got a couple of cameos in IDW's ''Friendship is Magic'' [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic book series]], showing that she does exist outside of Discord's rule.

* AdultsDressedAsChildren: She wears a propeller beanie. A headgear known to be worn by children, [[ManChild childish characters]] and, in some cases, mentally deranged individuals.
* TheCameo: In the comic books, she shows up on ''Friendship is Magic'' Issue #1 [[http://issuu.com/idwpublishing/docs/mylittlepony_01-preview-embargoeduntilnov28/25 page 3]]/[[http://issuu.com/idwpublishing/docs/mylittlepony_01-preview-embargoeduntilnov28/17 Dynamic Forces Cover RE]] scaring a couple of artist Andy Price's cats and on ''Friendship is Magic'' Issue #9 [[http://i.newsarama.com/images/MyLittlePony09-cvrA.jpg Cover A]] swooping through Ponyville.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: She has swirls instead of pupils. Might just be WingdingEyes though.
* HatOfFlight: She seems to be using her propeller beanie to hover through the air like a helicopter.
* NiceHat: A little propeller beanie.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as Discord's loving daughter who may or may not possess some level of [[RealityWarper reality warping powers]] similar to her father's and is also friends with Derpy and Screwy. Her relationship/connection with Diamond Tiara is also often explored due to their similarities in color schemes.
* RuleOfPerception: The cross eyes, the propeller beanie, the lip playing and the screw and baseball cutie mark is a visual cue to the audience that this pony is quite mad.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She, among others, are essentially a representation of the madness and chaos that is happening in Ponyville and its inhabitants. Whether she is real (an altered pony) or just another conjuration of Discord is unknown - though as shown with the comics, it could be both - she appears to look like that normally, and could have first come into being as a result of Discord's chaos.
* WingdingEyes: Her [[ExoticEyeDesigns swirly eyes]] might just be a [[RuleOfPerception visual sign]] that she is under some sort of mind altering spell.

A uniquely slender and statuesque unicorn with a white coat and light pink mane that appeared as Fancypants's companion in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]". Her cutie mark is three fleur-de-lis, two purple and one golden. This pony quickly captured the viewers' attention both because of her unusual design (with coloring resembling Princess Celestia in her youth) and attention-grabbing behavior. The fandom has been unable to decide on a backstory for her, and even her FanNickname has been a point of contention with "Fleur de Lis" seeming the most popular choice; Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame later [[http://i.imgur.com/Aa73diQ.png made]] "Fleur Dis Lee" her official name, and [[http://derpiboo.ru/281793 described]] [[http://imgur.com/a/vdQeA her]] as a supermodel.

* FleurDeLis: Her cutie mark, which led to her name.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Based off Princess Luna's character model rather than the standard model used for ponies.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as Fancypants' wife, fiance or lover due to how [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace really close]] she can get to Fancy Pants without annoying him. She has also been thought of as a model of sorts due to her constant posings and flamboyant movement; Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame has since officially [[http://derpiboo.ru/281793 described]] [[http://imgur.com/a/vdQeA her]] as a supermodel.
* OffscreenTeleportation: During her thirty seconds on screen, if the camera is off her for any amount of time she tends to be in a different spot in relation to Fancypants, such as nuzzling him from one side, then relaxing on his back on the other in half a second.
* SkunkStripe: It's hard to see but she has a white one going through her mane and tail.
* SpoiledSweet: She spends the ''other'' half of her thirty seconds of screen time helping Fancypants up after his collision with Rarity, and picking up Rarity's dropped bags.
* TrophyWife: Seems to be this to Fancypants (in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]", at least).

When Rainbow Dash tries to sneak back into a hospital she's been discharged from, the hospital staff is alerted to her presence! A frantic chase ensues, complete with ''[[StockSoundEffect loud]] [[AngryGuardDog barking]]'' coming from the pursuing ponies, which ends when Rainbow Dash is cornered outside Twilight's library. We discover the barking was in fact coming from a disheveled ''mare'' wearing a hospital gown. Apparently she's a patient who decided to join the pursuit on her own, and she's quickly herded back to the hospital by its security guard Night Watch. "Barking Mad" is the name used by the storyboardists, while the fandom initially took to "Screw Loose" (based on her cutie mark of a loose screw) as her FanNickname, but Enterplay's CollectibleCardGame made "Screwy" her official name ("Barking Mad" did make it onto Screwy's card, but not as a name).

* CallBack: A more sane Screwy appears in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E8JustForSidekicks Just For Sidekicks]]'', but when Nurse Snowheart hears Winona barking, she gives Screwy an accusing glare.
* DelusionsOfDoghood: At least behaviour-wise, which, since she's a pony, is also a sort of weird {{justified|Trope}} semi-example of AllAnimalsAreDogs.

-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E17HeartsAndHoovesDay Hearts and Hooves Day]]"

A series of nine stallions who the Cutie Mark Crusaders passed over in their search for the perfect stallion to be Cheerilee's special somepony on Hearts and Hooves Day. They consist of [[FanNickname Hay Fever]] ("clearly has a terrible cold"), [[FanNickname Clip Clop]] ("too silly"), [[FanNickname Persnickety]] ("way too uptight"), [[AllThereInTheScript Dance Fever]] ("much too flashy"), [[FanNickname Shortround]] ("too short"), [[FanNickname G. Raff]] ("too tall"), [[FanNickname Squeaky Clean]] ("too clean"), [[FanNickname Pigpen]] ("too smelly"), and [[FanNickname Hugh Jelly]] ("too strangely obsessed with tubs of jelly"). Other ponies were also considered: Mr. Waddle, Caramel and Time Turner (who've all appeared elsewhere and have their own entries on this page). A colt playing a video game ({{Fan Nickname}}d Button Mash by the fan animation ''WebAnimation/ButtonsAdventures''), would later appear in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential Ponyville Confidential]]". Before the CollectibleCardGame gave Dance Fever his official AllThereInTheScript name, he was given the FanNickname Hairy Tipper.

A earth stallion with a very nerdy complexion (down to buck teeth, pimples and a pair of taped-up glasses). His cutie mark is a [[SchizoTech humanoid-like robot]]. He appears in "Putting Your Hoof Down" as Rarity's "example", and later appears without speaking line in "Just for Sidekicks", selling potions. In ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' #11-12, he appears as a high-school friend of Shining Armor, where he is named Poindexter. His only named appearance in TheMerch is on the Enterplay CollectibleCardGame, where he is named and trademarked Gizmo in the demo but named Gyro (and called "Poindexter" but not as a name) later. Andy Price, the IDW artist, [[http://comments.deviantart.com/1/412381829/3270270786 suggested]] that he may be "Gizmo Poindexter" as his full name.

* AllThereInTheManual: His "Gizmo" and "Gyro" names only come from the Enterplay CollectibleCardGame.
* BowtiesAreCool: His signature item of clothing, though whether this makes him cool is up in the air.
* DisguisedInDrag: In the IDW comic story, he wears his mother's clothing for some of the plan to get Shining Armor together with Cadance, also dons a Canterlot Academy cheerleading outfit that distracts the other team and subsequently when he goes as Shining's date in full drag to the school dance.
* {{Nerd}}: No other way to describe him; buck teeth, pimples and a pair of taped-up glasses.
* SchizoTech: His cutie mark is that of a robot.

-->'''Debut & Speaking Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy Hurricane Fluttershy]]"

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BrianDrummond (Thunderlane)

Two Pegasus brothers, Thunderlane a stallion and Rumble a colt. Thunderlane is a slate gray, silver-maned pony who suffers from a cold during Ponyville's turn at [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy providing water for Cloudsdale]]. Said cold eventually lands eight pegasi in the hospital. Thunderlane later attends the wedding during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]" as well as the Wonderbolt Academy during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]".

* AwesomeMcCoolname: ''Thunderlane''.
* BadassAdorable: Rumble is participating in the tornado making as a little colt.
* [[DudeLooksLikeALady Colt Looks Like a Filly]]: Rumble's face has the standard filly shape.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Thunderlane's coughing on "Hurricane Fluttershy". Rainbow Dash thought it was an attempt at skipping the event. It proved to be a disastrous mistake as we later learn that his coughing was actually real. He was infected with a highly contagious disease known as the "feather flu" and it has managed to infect eight other ponies costing Ponyville the prize they were aiming for and almost causing the cancellation of the event itself if it weren't for Rainbow Dash's {{determinat|or}}ion and Fluttershy's [[TheCavalry timely assistance]] (however small it may have been).
* LazyBum: Rainbow Dash spends most of "Hurricane Fluttershy" convinced that Thunderlane's planning to shirk his duty to raise a hurricane. She's wrong ''this'' time, but given she works with him on a regular basis, her suspicions may have good grounding.
* {{Motif}}: Thunderlane's character design (dark gray coat and a thunder cloud cutie mark) pretty much tells you that something bad's going to happen.

->''"I am going for a hooficure and that is that!"''

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TabithaStGermain[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/StTabitha/status/307482713227685888 this]] tweet by Creator/TabithaStGermain[[/note]]

A cream Pegasus mare with a brown mane who's featured in one of Twilight Sparkle's {{flashback}}s during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1]]", she's seen in Canterlot arguing with [[AllThereInTheScript Lucky Clover]] until Cadance gets them to stop arguing. She also makes a couple of background appearances in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]", albeit [[OffModel with a different mane-and-tail style]]. She is in fact the OriginalCharacter of storyboard artist [[http://sibsy.deviantart.com/ Sabrina "Sibsy" Alberghetti]] who is based on herself.

[[http://fav.me/d47hb6p First]] [[http://sibsy.blogspot.com/2011/08/confound-these-ponies.html appeared]] on Sibsy's Website/DeviantArt account and blog as a then-unnamed pony in response to the trending Internet phenomenon of making "ponysonas" or pony personas that's been occuring throughout the fandom and even within the crew themselves. [[http://fav.me/d47xkjb Fans subsequently dubbed her]] as ''Wild Fire'' and Sibsy called her by that name [[http://fav.me/d48w321 from]] [[http://fav.me/d4wnsuy then]] [[http://fav.me/d521is7 on]], which Enterplay's eventual CollectibleCardGame would [[https://twitter.com/BejotyGames/status/409473551565979648 later]] [[https://twitter.com/TheRealSibsy/status/409761898238709761 make]] the pony's official name.

[[http://fav.me/d4xhzht After a pony drawn in the "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1" storyboard coincidentally looked similar]], [[ThrowItIn Sibsy got permission from art director Ridd Sorensen for that pony to be hers]], and thus, Wild Fire made her official debut within the show itself as a background pony. While the show's pairing of Wild Fire with Lucky Clover was chosen at random, Sibsy [[http://fav.me/d4ygtyx later]] [[http://sibsy.blogspot.com/2012/05/wild-fire-gets-lucky.html sketched]] the two ponies together.

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], [[http://fav.me/d5ssq33 she was going to be one of the main cadets in "Wonderbolts Academy"]], but [[WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings because some other crew members tried to sneak their ponies into the show without permission]], one of her two {{Palette Swap}}s in that episode was created to take her role there as a precaution, though a few traces of her (including a couple of OffModel appearances in the background) remained in the final cut (presumably as {{Blooper}}s). However, [[ShaggyDogStory it turned out that apparently she was officially approved]], and so Sibsy has planned to try to get her in the show again as a small cameo in possible future work.

She also makes various cameos in IDW's comics, such as in the first issue of ''[[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Friendship is Magic]]'' [[spoiler:flying around carrying Lucky Clover around happily after being saved from changelings.]]

* AuthorAvatar: Wild Fire was created as a pony version of Sibsy.
%%* CreatorCameo: Though Sibsy didn't voice her.
* OfficialCouple: With [[AllThereInTheScript Lucky Clover]].
* OCStandIn: Being originally a ponysona of Sibsy, fans would usually base her characterization on her creator and how she is depicted by her. She is often depicted as a feisty pony and/or a DeadpanSnarker who likes race cars. She leaves behind a [[IncendiaryExponent trail of fire and smoke whenever she flies fast]]. The smoke trail later became official on page 17 of ''Friendship is Magic'' comic book issue #1.

These ponies are a little bit more special than the other background ponies. They play a bigger role than a common background pony but not as big as a minor character's. They are created by the show's staff for a [[BitCharacter specific purpose]] in mind or possess a distinct character design rarely or not seen in other background ponies. They rarely appear and most of them have [[SpearCarrier only appeared once]] but when they do appear, their characterization is more consistent than most if not all common background ponies who gets a chance of playing a minor role.

'''Determining a special background pony:'''
* They possess a NonStandardCharacterDesign.
* They have not (yet) played a major role.
* They are {{Bit Character}}s or {{Spear Carrier}}s [[note]]{{One Scene Wonder}} is an opinion towards a SpearCarrier.[[/note]].
* Their characterization is (mostly) consistent.

[[AllThereInTheScript Snowheart]] is later seen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E8JustForSidekicks Just for Sidekicks]]". Before the toy line gave Nurse Snowheart her official AllThereInTheScript name, she was given the FanNickname Nurse Coldheart.

* TheBigGirl: Nurse Sweetheart is by far the largest of the nurse ponies. Possibly also the oldest.
* CustomUniform: Not very noticeable at first glance but if you examine more closely you'll see that Nurse Redheart's (and probably also her PaletteSwap; Nurse Tenderheart) nurse hat has a differently designed logo compared to the other nurse ponies. Her logo consists of a thick [[UsefulNotes/TheRedCross red cross]] with small pink hearts on each of its corners while the rest of the nurses have nurse hats with a thin ''white'' cross (also with small pink hearts) and is enclosed in a red circle.
* {{Expy}}: Design-wise, without the hat and red cross, Nurse Redheart looks a lot like G1 Sundance.
* TheMedic: All of them.
* MulticoloredHair: Nurse Sweetheart has purple and white stripes similar to those of Twilight Sparkle's mother.

* SetBonus: In the Enterplay CCG game, each of the Trio has their own card with different abilities, but effect of one can feed into another, as such to create a powerful card combination with all three in play.
* RunningGag: They will each say something about the unfolding tragedy one by one then start panicking which causes everypony around them to gallop away and hide inside their houses as well.

She returns in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", which introduces the other three: [[AllThereInTheScript Aloe]], a PaletteSwap of Lotus Blossom; "[[FanNickname Quake]]", a large masseuse; and "[[FanNickname Roxie]]", who first appears as one of Photo Finish's helpers and isn't seen working at the spa until "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend in Deed]]", which also features Lotus Blossom and Aloe. Lotus Blossom and "Quake" appear again in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential Ponyville Confidential]]".

* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Lotus and Aloe.
* {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s: Lotus and Aloe.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Aloe.
* {{Expy}}: Lotus Blossom and Aloe appear to be based on the twins of the G1 [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Surprise_Twins_Pony Surprise Twins Pony]] and/or on the G2 twins [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/Rose_and_Lily Rose and Lily]].
* FlowerMotif: Lotus Blossom and Aloe's cutie mark is a white lotus, a flower commonly associated with spas.
* HairDecorations: Lotus Blossom and Aloe's matching hairbands.
* MythologyGag: Lotus Blossom's accent, if she and Aloe are indeed based on one or both of the Europe-exclusive previous-gen pony twins mentioned under {{Expy}} above.
* OCStandIn: Lotus and Aloe are depicted by fans as inseparable twin sisters. A lot of TwinTropes are often used for their fanon characterization.
* [[SheIsAllGrownUp They Are All Grown Up]]: Considering Lotus Blossom and Aloe ''were'' based on baby pony twins...
* UnexplainedAccent: The show doesn't really reveal or explain much about why Lotus Blossom has that accent.
* [[WhatTheHellIsThatAccent What The Hay Is That Accent?]]: Lotus Blossom's accent seems to be an odd mix of Indian and German. [[SensualSlavs Slavic perhaps]]?
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: Aloe.

She's ''very'' popular for a character with less than a minute (in the first season, only a few seconds) of screentime. She shows up a lot in advertisements and official merchandise, and has multiple toys, even being made 2013 Special Edition Pony. [[AllThereInTheManual According to her and Octavia's trading card]], "DJ Pon-3 feels at home behind her turntable, laying down sick beats and wearing her trademark sunglasses."

An analysis on Vinyl "DJ Pon-3" Scratch is available on [[Analysis/FriendshipIsMagicBackgroundPonies the analysis page]].

* AllThereInTheManual: DJ Pon-3's properly-lit colors have also been mentioned by WordOfGod and shown on the [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=256161614401283 Comic-Con 2011 poster]]/[[http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.262953797055398.84804.118429394841173 desktop background]], in the {{Web Game|s}} ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlpfim-dj-pinkie-pie DJ Pinkie Pie]]'', and [[http://wedding.mylittlepony.com/Pony-Wedding-Music-Game.html on]] Hasbro's ''Pony Wedding'' microsite.
* AscendedExtra:
** She's one of the seven brushable toys in the ''Friendship Is Magic Favorite Collection'' from the Toys "R" Us exclusive ''Collector Series'', and she's even [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=526570387357208 apparently]] going to be one of Funrise's plush toys. She and Octavia also share [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391355776 a trading card]].
** She appears in the movie ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. Also, when the official Hub website held a poll for who would be the 7th pony cut-out, DJ Pon-3 [[WolverinePublicity was the only background pony that you could vote for.]] Her role in ''MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' appears more significant, given that one of the prequel shorts is dedicated on her, and the merch for the film includes her car (as well as the fact the film is based on a BattleOfTheBands theme).
* AscendedFanon: Despite never appearing in the same in-show scene[[note]]or even the same ''episode'', until [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]][[/note]], it would seem that DJ Pon-3's and Octavia Melody's association with one another in fanon was strong enough to cause them to appear together on [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0wQ3P2KlvG0/UBC0JdFSOxI/AAAAAAAAlQk/rOtEZNzVtPE/s1600/Tavi+and+Scratch.jpg one of Enterplay's trading cards]], using the {{Stage Name|s}} DJ Pon-3 and actually using the name Octavia (quite possibly one of the first official uses of that name, barring the [=WeLoveFine=] shirts). The [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-N3U86TvSa2w/UBC2aPBHCLI/AAAAAAAAlQs/kx0-zDtvOBA/s1600/Tavi+and+Scratch+back.jpg info on the back of the card]] also takes many cues from fanon, as it highlights their differences in musical styles and suggests that they ''might'' know each other as either friends or rivals.
** Pay close attention to the [[FunnyBackgroundEvent background, where she and Octavia are]] [[http://images.wikia.com/mlp/images/4/4c/Season_2_cast_poster.jpg on this season 2 poster.]] [[VitriolicBestBuds You can see DJ Pon-3 actively messing with Octavia.]]
** The first time within any story thus far where they're in the same place, same time is [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries Rarity's micro comic]] where they're both present early on at a party... in which DJ Pon-3 is busy playing music while [[SubvertedTrope Octavia is hanging out with Lyra Heartstrings & Pinkie Pie instead]].
** Her special foil Series 2 Enterplay card (From the MLPFaire 2013) calls to Vinyl Scratch being her real name and DJ Pon-3 as her {{Stage Name|s}}, which is how the fandom has usually explained these names. As the cards [[RunningTheAsylum were written with help from the fans]] and Hasbro itself doesn't use that name, Vinyl Scratch is of doubtful canon, at best.
** The same card also lists "wubs" as one of her "Likes".
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Both her {{Stage Name|s}} and her real name.
* CheatedAngle: Her mane isn't symmetrical at all, yet it's always drawn the same way whether she's facing left or right, as otherwise it would cover most of her face half of the time.
* [[CoolBigSis Cool Big Bro]]: Issues #11 and #12 of the IDW comic (taking place in flashback when Shining Armor and Cadance were in high school) includes a filly Vinyl watching Shining's show [[spoiler:and getting her cutie mark]] atop the back of a white-coated, red-maned (styled similar to Vinyl's) unicorn stallion with a vinyl record-and-note cutie mark; later, he is DJ'ing the school dance under the stage name "33 1/3-LP". Andy Price, the artist, affirmed this was Vinyl's older brother. The fandom has taken the names "Long Play" (what LP expands to) or "Smooth Beat" as his given name, but all agree he's in the same class of cool as Vinyl.
* CoolShades: Purple ones with black rims that obscure her eyes. Have led to {{Fanon}} and various speculations until "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]".
* DependingOnTheArtist: Her eyes outside of the show have gone back and forth between magenta and red. Colorist Heather Breckel gave Vinyl red eyes in her cameo in [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyMicroSeries Rarity's Micro comic]] as an intentional FandomNod and [[http://boards.idwpublishing.com/3/viewtopic.php?p=335260#p335260 commented]] that if Vinyl ever has a more significant role (where Breckel is the colorist), she'll give Vinyl her canon eye color.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Assuming that one takes the Interplay cards as canon, then she prefers DJ Pon-3 over Vinyl Scratch to the point that most ponies haven't even heard of the name. Hasbro's official releases don't use that name at all.
* HeavyMetalUmlaut: Her "Vinyl Scratch" name [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/06/mlp-licensing-expo-2012-images-from.html has been]] [[SpellMyNameWithAnS spelled as]] "Vın̈yl Scratch" as part of a ShoutOut to ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap''.
* LeetLingo: Her {{Stage Name|s}} "DJ Pon-3".
* LifeOfTheParty: Based on her latest appearance, she seems to be just as party loving as Pinkie is (though not as eccentric and wild as her).
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a DJ pony with [[TheRockStar rock star-like qualities]] who, aside from being a stage performing DJ, is also [[LargeHamRadio an eccentric radio host]][[note]]Thanks to the ''Fanfic/TheVinylScratchTapes''[[/note]] who is VitriolicBestBuds with Octavia due to their [[OddFriendship differing taste in music and lifestyle]] and their [[RedOniBlueOni contrasting (fanon) personalities]].
** Depicting her with [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] was also prominent until the Canterlot Wedding 2-parter came along, and even after, many people still prefer that color.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]], most of which was made before "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]" gave her a canon eye color.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS:
** "DJ Pon-3" has been used by Hasbro ([[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=381668998517210 on]] [[https://twitter.com/MyLittlePony/status/168396065052172289 their]] ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' {{Facebook}} and {{Twitter}}) and by her and Octavia's [[TheMerch trading card]], while "DJ Pon3" has been used by TheHub (in their commercial ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43yodRbQrd4 There's a Pony For That]]''); these two spellings and more have been used by Mighty Fine's [[TheMerch merchandise]] and its various listings.
** "Vinyl Scratch" has been used by [[TheMerch Mighty Fine]]'s online store [=WeLoveFine=], while "Vın̈yl Scratch" has been used [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/06/mlp-licensing-expo-2012-images-from.html at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2012]] (as part of a ShoutOut to ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap'').
* ShoutOut: Her {{Stage Name|s}} "DJ Pon-3" is a reference to how [=DJs=] often use {{Awesome McCoolname}}s and XtremeKoolLetterz as their StageNames. [[note]]And originally to {{Music/deadmau5}} in particular.[[/note]]
* StageNames: Formerly a SuddenNameChange, her two names were eventually officially made a case of this, with "DJ Pon-3" being a stage name and "Vinyl Scratch" being her real name.
* WolverinePublicity: She managed to hit that rare sweet spot where she's very popular among the fans for her striking design and cool job, and she's popular enough with Hasbro that she gets to appear in a number of places like merchandise and other promotional material. Her human counterpart from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' even made it into the trailer, not even Derpy can claim that.
** It doesn't end there. She appears as a UsefulNotes/McDonalds Happy Meal toy, and she appears ''in place of Applejack''.
** Still more publicity: [[http://youtu.be/qh7j1qUaGOc This video]] from Hasbro, promoting ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', is all about DJ Pon-3.
* WordOfGod: As described by storyboardist Sabrina "Sibsy" Alberghetti, DJ Pon-3's creation was atypical. The storyboardists would normally pull from a pool of established characters or the otherwise dozen-some background characters if they need to fill a scene. For "Suited For Success", the storyboardist, Mike West, needed to include a DJ of some type which was not yet offered in the pool, and sketched out the preliminary version of DJ Pon-3. The design was cleaned up and made into a character. Alberghetti has stated that she since then has tried to insert the character any chance she gets, including the numerous appearances of her human version in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]''.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: And it's one of the coolest manes in the show.

A classy gray earth pony with a pink treble clef cutie mark. She plays [[AllThereInTheManual the cello]] as part of quartet performances at Canterlot's Grand Galloping Gala and garden party, respectively during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]", and also cameos in at least two issues of IDW's ''Friendship is Magic'' [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic book series]]. After her debut, fans loved her classy look and initial deadpan reaction to Pinkie Pie on stage so much that she's become one of the most popular musician ponies. [[AllThereInTheManual According to her and DJ Pon-3's trading card]], "You can find Octavia at garden parties and galas performing prim and proper classical music on her cello."

An analysis on Octavia is available on [[{{Analysis/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} the analysis page]].

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She's just not Octavia without that bowtie and white collar.

* ImpracticalMusicalInstrumentSkills: How does she even ''play'' her cello with her hooves anyway?
* LeadBassist: She's the most popular member of the band. She even takes the lead (with the camera focused on her) on their second appearance in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]".
* [[NobodyLovesTheBassist Nopony Loves The Bassist]]: Inverted. So much so that the fandom pays little to no attention to the rest of her band, which has led to her appearing in out-of-show media without any of her bandmates.
* NotSoStoic: Her appearances in the show have thus far show her being mostly calm and professional, only scowling slightly when Pinkie ruins her cello. However, the comics have shown her having fun at a party (which Vinyl Scratch is [=DJing=]), being a badass when time calls, and being downright ''grumpy'' when the Cutie Mark Crusaders steal her band's cart complete with RedEyesTakeWarning.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a [[TheStoic stoic]] ElegantClassicalMusician who is VitriolicBestBuds with Vinyl Scratch due to their [[OddFriendship differing taste in music and lifestyle]] and their [[RedOniBlueOni contrasting (fanon) personalities]].

Just because Octavia Melody's [[FaceOfTheBand the most well known]] doesn't mean the fans have forgotten her bandmates. In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver her first appearance]], Octavia is seen playing with a male piano player (Frederick Horseshoepin), a female sousaphone player (Beauty Brass) and a male harp player (Parish Nandermane). Parish returns with Octavia in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" alongside new bandmates: two violin players (one male and one female) though there aren't any widely accepted nicknames for them yet. The Gala band also has a country music counterpart that plays in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]]" and (minus the piano player) "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion Apple Family Reunion]]".

* {{Accessory Wearing Cartoon Animal}}s: All of them, Octavia included, wear white collars and bowties. This seems to be their standard "attire" of sorts.

-->Voiced by Creator/TabithaStGermain[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/goldenrusset/status/160781538429116416 this]] tweet by Jayson Thiessen[[/note]]

Derpy [[AllThereInTheScript Hooves]] is a grey Pegasus with a cluster of bubbles as her cutie mark. She is, quite simply, the ''ultimate'' [[EnsembleDarkhorse darkhorse pony]] in a series overflowing with them. Derpy was "born" when she was drawn making a face in the background of the first episode[[note]](according to a layout artist, she was posed this way on purpose but meant to be hidden behind another pony; a later tweak revealed her face)[[/note]]. Her unusual expression proved phenomenally popular with the [[PeripheryDemographic brony fans]] who nicknamed her "Derpy Hooves" and quickly turned her into a [[MemeticMutation meme]]. The animators started giving her own scripted scenes in Season 2, and the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup "The Last Roundup"]] [[SuddenlyVoiced gave her lines]] and ([[OrwellianRetcon in the original version]]) referred to her on-screen as "Derpy."

She's also known as "Ditzy Doo" by a lot of fans (and, very rarely, by [[TheMerch Mighty Fine]]'s online store [=WeLoveFine=]), after a character mentioned in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E11WinterWrapUp "Winter Wrap Up"]], who LaurenFaust had considered using Derpy's design for. In fact, [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/02/amy-keating-rogers-response-to-derpy.html according to Amy Keating Rogers]], the first draft of "The Last Roundup" did in fact use the name "Ditzy Doo" until she was asked to change it to "Derpy" as a FandomNod. The character is also known as "Bubbles" as well, though this name is much less official than either of her other names. However, after reactions from "The Last Roundup", her name was quickly scrubbed from post-release of the episode, and avoided in the official merch, though still making numerous items with her on it. If they have to name her, she is generally given the title of "Best Pony". The issue is avoided entirely on an official toy set that includes a brushable Derpy - where the name for Derpy would be is instead a picture of a muffin. Hot Topic has started releasing licensed Derpy-themed merch with the trademarked name "Muffins".

Regardless of her name or [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation how she's depicted by fans]], for better or worse she's become the mascot of the brony community.

More analysis on Derpy is available on [[{{Analysis/FriendshipIsMagic-BackgroundPonies}} the analysis page]].

%%* [[{{Adorkable}} Aderpable]]
* AllThereInTheManual: Two AscendedFanon things about Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo:
** Her [[http://content.usatoday.com/communities/popcandy/post/2012/05/exclusive-preview-the-2012-special-edition-my-little-pony/1 toy's box]] and several pieces of licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]] have both referenced muffins being her TrademarkFavoriteFood, to the point where the muffin is used instead of providing her name (see intro). In the show, she's merely one of several ponies who gathered at the free muffin sample spectacular during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" (others of whom were licking their lips or even drooling) and may or may not have said "muffin" while at said gathering (see BeamMeUpScotty below). However, in the second opening and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E13HearthsWarmingEve Hearth's Warming Eve]]" she appears riding in the Friendship Express Train's Ice Cream Train Car (which in the show looks more a cupcake or a muffin), and she wore a saddlebag with a muffin-shaped clip during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]". In the first issue of the IDW comic, she is seen being lured into a trap by a trail of muffins. In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'', she's seen during the "Helping Twilight Win The Crown" song and on the last page of the credits dancing with a muffin.
** Licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]] has also referenced her being a mailmare. In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" she's part of a team of pegasi unloading packages from a truck, but neither she nor the other members of the team are wearing any of the mailpony uniforms that would later be shown in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E11FamilyAppreciationDay Family Appreciation Day]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]", and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", and WordOfGod has [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/02/fim-layout-guy-answering-questions-on.html called]] the team a moving company. The Rarity Micro-series issue and the cover for the ninth issue has illustrated Derpy as a mailmare, as well. In ''My Little Pony: Equestria Girls'', humanized Derpy is at one point seen walking with a letter in hand (during the cafeteria song), though the way she's blushing, it might be that she got then letter as opposed to delivering it.
* AlliterativeName: ''D''itzy ''D''oo.
* AscendedExtra: Went from being just another background pony to getting her own scripted scenes and having her FanNickname become AscendedFanon (in the original version of "The Last Roundup"). She's also [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharH_Derpy.swf included]] in the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/play/details.cfm?R=5B309E58-5056-900B-1040-324367303E14:en_US Castle Creator]]'' game on Hasbro and TheHub's websites, and was [[http://www.hasbro.com/common/assets/Flash/Creative/dad2af6e1c4311ddbd0b0800200c9a66/0f6b55af5056900b1013cd724a8d4018/assets/characters/MLP_CharW_DH_definitely_canon.swf included]] in the Christmas version of the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/play/details.cfm?R=0F6B55AF-5056-900B-1013-CD724A8D4018:en_US Card Creator]]'' game on Hasbro's website (but was DummiedOut along with the game's other Christmas assets once the game was switched to the Valentine version). She even has a Fashion Style size toy as the 2012 special edition pony, making her the only background pony to receive that size of toy (the only others are the Mane Six, the three Princesses, and Shining Armor) as well as the first and so far only special edition pony to be part of G4 (the special editions had previously stuck to being G3 ponies).
* AscendedFanon: The episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyfriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]" sealed the deal by making her fan-made shape and behavior and (in the original version) part of her FanNickname fully canon. The fandom definitely rejoiced. (So naturally, when the edited version of the episode removed any mention of her name and re-recorded her voice, there was much backlash to be had. It's calmed down for the most part, thankfully, though there are still a handful that refuse to let bygones be bygones.) She's had more AscendedFanon in the licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]].
** The IDW comic officially made her a mailmare and even gave her a uniform to seal the deal.
** Issue #10 of the IDW comic used a mailbox with the name "D. Hooves" to show where she was currently living.
* AssKicksYou: She knocks down one of the Town Hall's support beams and later breaks the Hall's floor, just with her ''butt.''
** And let it be known that the latter happened when she merely sat down. Clearly Derpy has a [[UnusualEuphemism plot]] of steel. [[note]] The fandom's word for "butt," which originated from an image poking fun at people who watch it for the plot.[[/note]]
* BackForTheFinale: After being OutOfFocus during Season 03, Derpy finally managed to return for the season finale episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]". She even winks at the audience, lampshading the whole situation.
* BadassAdorable: [[WildMassGuessing Implied]] because she was able to break through solid wood just by sitting on it.
* BeamMeUpScotty: Possibly; she's only one of three ponies whose lip flaps match [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usYRXYdBG30 the famous "muffin" line]] in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E4ApplebuckSeason Applebuck Season]]" (the other two being Sea Swirl and Minuette). It isn't clear which of them are saying the line (or if it's meant to represent all three). And since background ponies generally don't have consistent voices, that can't be used to narrow it down.
* CastHerd: In Season 1 she's often seen alongside fellow pegasi Parasol/Showers and [[PaletteSwap Raindrops]], both sharing her famous "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" scene with her. In Season 2 she's usually, if seen with somepony else, with Golden Harvest or Dr. Hooves in various {{Fandom Nod}}s.
* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: Probably the biggest consequence of the "Derpygate" affair is that any official merchandise doesn't refer to her by any name. Instead they use descriptions, pictures or just leave the field where a name would be blank. Which makes the controversy around her all the more glaring.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Both pale blond.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Her clumsiness wrecked townhall in "The Last Round Up"
* DelayedReaction:
** During a collective {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", hers is a bit later than the rest of the crowd's.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E19PuttingYourHoofDown Putting Your Hoof Down]], Iron Will's odd money-back guarantee initially confuses ponies, but then causes them to laugh. When he gives the crowd a stern glare, most of them immediately stop laughing. Guess who doesn't.
* [[DemotedToExtra Demoted Back To Extra]]: Derpy's appearances have been "scared off" by the controversy surrounding her one speaking role in the show, and she only appears in a handful of non-speaking background cameos in season 3. She is also in an awkward position where she is known as "Derpy" by the fanbase, the studio staff and Hasbro, but are [[TheScottishTrope unable to really be called that]] on the show itself for fear of MoralGuardians coming down on them (and calling her by any ''other'' name, such as Ditzy, would just end up reigniting the controversy anyway.) Later merchandise and the ExpandedUniverse have avoided referring to her by any name.
** According to WordOfGod, however, she is now technically considered a "secondary character", along with Vinyl, as when questioned on the lack of background ponies in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]], a layout artist of the movie said that there were no background ponies in the movie, and only secondary characters like Cheerilee were included. Considering this, and the fact that it's been confirmed by the team that Derpy will make appearances in Season 4, it's safe to say that she'll be out of the DemotedToExtra category soon enough.
** As of season 4, she has a good sized (though still non-speaking) role in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E10RainbowFalls Rainbow Falls]]," as Rainbow Dash's emergency replacement. Subsequent episodes also return to featuring her in very visible background roles, as was the case in season 2.
* TheDitz: A walking (or flying) disaster area. First implied from the annoyed look on her supervisor's face when she accidentally pummels Twilight with everything but the kitchen sink in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" and when she accidentally drains the barrel of water and apples in "Luna Eclipsed". Confirmed in "The Last Roundup" as she demolishes Ponyville's city hall while she was helping Rainbow Dash to hang some banners on it. She breaks the floor and drags Rainbow Dash to the hall's basement with her, literally by sitting there and doing nothing as ordered.
* [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength]]: A subtle example can be found in her appearance in "The Last Roundup". She was strong enough to inadvertently knock over a wooden support beam, drag Rainbow Dash down a hole and break through a solid floor by sitting on it too hard.
* DumbBlonde: Sometimes. Apparently confirmed by "The Last Roundup".
* {{Expy}}: Derpy has been [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7768176/1/Equestria_Songbook compared to]] G1 Applejack, and has also been compared to Minty, G3's resident CuteClumsyGirl who was also voiced by TabithaStGermain. Appearance-wise, Derpy's a lot like G3 Earth pony Bubblecup, which has lead to some fans adopting that as an alternative name for her, and she shares a cutie mark with G1 Bubbles, one of the first six My Little Pony toys!
* FandomNod: After the production crew caught on to Derpy's darkhorse status, they used her to insert simple events that acknowledged fandom activities, like muffins and possibly the Dr. Hooves theory.
* FishEyes: Surprisingly enough [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] most of the time (her eyes face inward more often than outward), but played straight for brief moments in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E18TheShowStoppers The Show Stoppers]]", "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]", and "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E15TheSuperSpeedyCiderSqueezy6000 The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000]]".
* ForWantOfANail: The story behind her original appearance is that an animator crossed her eyes for his/her own amusement, then attempted to put another pony in front of her to obscure the abnormality. However, during rendering, the other pony glitched, revealing Derpy to the world. If that pony hadn't failed to render, we wouldn't have one of the most iconic ponies in the fandom.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Her very expression [[http://www.moondancerdreaming.com/images/random/Derpy1.png in the first episode]] and in later episodes following "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]". Spotting her is a WheresWaldo-esque game for fans.
* [[HeroOfAnotherStory Heroine of Another Story]][=/=]NoodleIncident: Derpy must have a ''very'' interesting life. Among other things, she has her own private suite in the Friendship Express Train's Ice Cream Train Car, she's entered flying competitions, hung out in Fluttershy's chicken coop, is somehow able to freely converse with the Canterlot elite wearing only a pearl necklace and her [[MemeticMutation paper bag wizard]] getup from Nightmare Night, got turned into a filly for a day, and was ''shrunken and imprisoned in a snowglobe owned by someone who just moved into Ponyville as of that episode.''
** Fanon mostly chalks the stranger things up to adventures with Dr. Hooves/Time Turner.
* IHaveManyNames: Although Derpy is the most common name, she has also been referred to as Ditzy Doo, and Hot Topic's website also offers the name "Bubbles." This is necessary since the most common name, "Derpy", is seen as offensive to some.
* KindheartedSimpleton: Probably the most common interpretation of Derpy's character as a whole.
* TheKlutz: During "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E15FeelingPinkieKeen Feeling Pinkie Keen]]" she drops several items of furniture from a delivery truck in comical fashion on Twilight Sparkle's head, while during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]" she partially destroys Ponyville's city hall, which later becomes an important part of the plot.
* LarynxDissonance: Her DelayedReaction {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" is either this or VocalDissonance (it's unknown whether she was voiced by a woman or a man in that episode).
* MeaningfulName: Both of her names (which are also UnfortunateNames).
** Her name "Derpy", as well as being a reference to her googly eyes, deals with being idiotic, since she is canonically a [[TheDitz ditz]].
** Her other name "Ditzy Doo" also references her [[TheDitz ditz]]iness (and by its original definition, [[HaveAGayOldTime unlike the name "Derpy"]]).
* LineOfSightName: The alternate name "Bubbles." Because she has bubbles! The name "Derpy" was coined because of her wonky eyes.
* MindScrew: When Apple Bloom is demonstrating her hoop talent in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]]", one of the blank-flanked school background fillies appears to be Derpy Hooves, down to her wings, hair color and style and her crossed eyes of gold. [[WildMassGuessing Your guess is as good as ours]].
* NiceGirl: She's friendly and likes to help other ponies like Rainbow Dash, [[StopHelpingMe just a shame she's so clumsy]].
* {{No Name Given}}: After the name "Derpy" was used as a FandomNod, it was discovered that it had offensive connotations (it has had use as a slur against the disabled). As a result, she's now not referred to by any name in media and merchandise. This would make it extremely difficult to use her in situations outside of cameos and merchandise of her have to use workarounds such as descriptions, pictures or leaving the field blank.
* NoodleIncident: How she destroyed the town hall roof. According to a DeletedScene, it was hit by lightning due to a weather control mistake.
* NoSenseOfDirection: In "Winter Wrap Up" it's mentioned that Ditzy Doo tried going ''north'' to fetch the southern birds (after going west the previous year).
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as a [[TheDitz ditzy]], muffin loving mail mare with an uncanny ability to ignore physics and/or do impossible things (often for laughs). She is best friends with Golden Harvest/Carrot Top who she often goes to to eat her home baked muffins which often ends up emptying the entire contents of her fridge. She also has two daughters (Fire Chief and Amethyst Star) and is a frequent companion of the time lord pony, Dr. Hooves/Time Turner, who may or may not be the father of her daughters.
* OffModel: What she started out as[[note]]sort of; the animator crossed her eyes intentionally, but they would've been obscured to the audience had a different pony not glitched during rendering[[/note]]. Now the animators draw her with her eyes facing the wrong directions ''[[FandomNod intentionally]]''.
* OutOfFocus: In Season 3, she's only seen in the background in four of the thirteen episodes. The controversy must have gotten to Hasbro really, really hard. Thankfully she returned in season 4 in a big way.
* RunningGag[=/=]OncePerEpisode: Starting in the second season, Derpy has appeared in some sort of wacky scene or random cameo. In season 3 she only appeared in general crowd scenes until the SeasonFinale "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]". After that [[spoiler: get a couple appearances by herself as a human in ''Equestria Girls.'']]
* TheScottishTrope: Her most common name, "Derpy" has ended up as a meta-example.
* ShockAndAwe: She made lighting from a storm cloud strike town hall by [[PluckyGirl bouncing up and down on it]].
* SimpletonVoice: In the original version, although apparently not intentionally.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Mighty Fine's online store [=WeLoveFine=] has very rarely misspelled her names in the keywords of their [[TheMerch merchandise]]'s pages:
** "Derpy Whooves" (''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1627 My Bad BUTTON]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1669 shirt and button]], ''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1709 Misunderstood]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1710 shirt]])
** "Ditsy Doo" (''[[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1723 What Went Wrong]]'' [[http://www.welovefine.com/product.php?id_product=1724 shirt]])
* SuddenlyVoiced: Derpy Hooves has no clear lines until [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup "The Last Roundup"]] (if her gasp in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor "Green Isn't Your Color"]] isn't counted as a line).
* TooManyCooksSpoilTheSoup: Probably the core reason as to why Derpy failed to be integrated into the show properly. Unlike the mane 6, who were all had their attributes, personalities and relationships all thought up by a single person (Creator/LaurenFaust), Derpy's attributes were developed by many many people independently from one another (fans, the studio and even Hasbro itself), as if they were all playing a game of Telephone. When no one can really agree on how intelligent she should be, you're asking for trouble.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Muffins. Mostly AllThereInTheManual, but during "Putting Your Hoof Down", she is seen with a muffin-shaped clasp on her saddlebag--most ponies have clasps shaped like their own cutie marks. The box of her 2012 special edition toy seals the deal by including numerous muffins, including replacing the "0" in the "2012" with a muffin. The back of the Fan Favorites seven-pony set, which includes Derpy, replaces her name with a muffin.
** The ExpandedUniverse gets in on the act too: in ''Literature/TwilightSparkleAndTheCrystalHeartSpell'', Derpy stops by a pastry stand Mr. Cake has set up and asks for some muffins.
** The IDW comic also runs with this idea and dedicated her a full page where a couple of Changelings lure her into a trap using a trail of muffins. In the Nightmare Forces arc (5-8), she's angry defending her stash of muffins. Some comic covers also put her and her favorite food together.
** Her main appearance in the final credits of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' has her holding up a muffin.
** To sum it up, her love of muffins is probably the one part of her character that practically everyone can agree with.
* UnfortunateNames: Both of her names (which are also {{Meaningful Name}}s).
** Her name "Derpy", as well as being a reference to her googly eyes, deals with being idiotic, silly, or klutzy, since she is canonically a [[TheDitz ditz]]. (Hence why any mention of it was removed from the edited version. This apparently owes to an increasing use of "Derpy" to mean "retarded", which Amy Rogers acknowledged.)
** Her other name "Ditzy Doo" also references her [[TheDitz ditz]]iness (and by its original definition, [[HaveAGayOldTime unlike the name "Derpy"]]).
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Tabitha St. Germain apparently thought Derpy was a ''boy'' on the day she came in to record her lines for the original version of "The Last Roundup", and wasn't told otherwise, though [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=84605&view=findpost&p=1996720 the voice was probably adjusted a bit in post production to be just a little higher than what was in the original recording]]. This resulted in Derpy sounding androgynous or young-boyish, but still female. (The edited version of the episode gives her a different, much more feminine-sounding voice.)
* VagueAge: She's been an adult in the past (like other background ponies), and a filly in both the past and present. [[MindScrew Your guess is as good as ours.]]
* ValleyGirl: Sounds like this in the edited version.
* VocalDissonance:
** Her DelayedReaction {{GASP}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E20GreenIsntYourColor Green Isn't Your Color]]" is either this or LarynxDissonance (it's unknown whether she was voiced by a woman or a man in that episode).
** In the original version of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]", she sounds ''very'' tomboy-ish, almost like a young boy. According to [[http://derpyhoovesnews.com/tabitha-st-germain-clarifies-a-little-bit-on-derpys-voice/ this]], the voice actress wasn't aware that Derpy was a girl (though according to [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=84605&view=findpost&p=1996720 this]], the voice was probably adjusted a bit in post production to be just a little higher than what was in the original recording). Considering Derpy's original googly-eyed expression and resultant popularity came into being due to an accident (while the expression was intentional, she wasn't meant to be visible in that scene), it seems fitting that other aspects of her would come about due to accidents.
* TheVoiceless: Her next big appearance in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E10RainbowFalls Rainbow Falls]]" has her not talking at all, most likely to avoid another controversy.
* WalkingDisasterArea: She can cause property damage just by ''sitting down''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Amy Keating Rogers revealed that in the original version of the song "Smile Smile Smile" Pinkie Pie was meant to refer to Derpy as "Derpy Doo". They even were going to sing about Derpy following Pinkie's advice and asking Zecora for a brew to cure her cough.
** An early draft of "The Last Roundup" referred to Derpy as "Ditzy Doo", though the name was changed in order to give a ShoutOut to the fans. Before this, according to Lauren Faust, Ditzy Doo and the gray pegasus were not initially intended to be the same character, though she ''did'' consider having the design used for Ditzy. Alternative names for the pegasus from the season 1 Philippines crew included: "Stoneface", "Bubbles", "Ditzy", and "Bubblehead".

[[folder:The Crystal Ponies]]
-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 The Crystal Empire - Part 1]]"

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NicoleOliver (Crystal Pony #1), Creator/TabithaStGermain (Crystal Pony #2), Creator/CathyWeseluck (Crystal Pony #3 & Librarian), and Creator/AndrewFrancis (Crystal Pony #4)

The denizens of the Crystal Empire. They were a peaceful and loving race before the rise of King Sombra, who enslaved them and made their lives miserable. When not depressed they have sparkling coats and crystalline manes, and their most valued tradition is a fair that powers their most sacred relic the Crystal Heart, which makes them (and non-Crystal Ponies) even more sparkly. As of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure Magical Mystery Cure]]", they've also been seen in Ponyville and Canterlot.

* AndIMustScream: The Crystal Ponies were kept as Sombra's Slave Race, and have spent the last thousand years after his defeat with no contact with the outside world and stuck in a state of despair and unhappiness. Worsening it is the fact that they have no memory of the time before that, meaning all they could remember during that time was being his slaves.
* [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness Dull Coats of Unhappiness]]: Before being revived, the crystal ponies have washed out color schemes to go with their depressed voices.
* EternalEnglish: Despite being gone for 1000 years they have no problem speaking Modern Equestrian (or whatever it is that ponies speak), even though Princess Luna ''did'' have problems. Maybe it was just royalty that spoke differently back then.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: And the Crystal Heart gives them ''even more sparkles''!
* ExpressiveHair: Their ''entire bodies''. When sad they have dull colors and plain manes, when happy and full of hope they sparkle and for some of them their hair style changes to emphasize this.
* FanNickname: Voted-on names, through the /listofponies/ subreddit and the FiM wiki, for the characters are Autumn Gem (female, blue coat, purple hair, Nicole), Fleur de Verre (female, light coat, purple hair, Tabitha), Paradise (female, purple coat, blue hair, Cathy), Night Knight (male, blue, Andrew), Agatha (the librarian; Cathy), Crystal Arrow (male, white coat, blue hair), Amber Waves (female, purple coat, brown hair), and "Castle" (light blue coat, yellow hair). Other characters have been given names by fans, but they did not speak.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Gone for 1000 years, and at first they don't even remember what happened before that!
* FleurDeLis: Various colors of these are one of their cutie mark designs.
* [[spoiler:TheDogBitesBack]]: [[spoiler:After being abused and enslaved by him, they power up the Crystal Heart when the opportunity presents itself and blow King Sombra into oblivion.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: King Sombra put a spell on them that made them forget what life was like before his rule, though they start to remember as they cheer up.
* NoNameGiven: None of them have names, the credits just list the ones that talked as Crystal Ponies 1-4 and "Librarian".[[note]]Interestingly enough, "The Crystal Empire" is the first time incidental characters have had their VA's listed in the credits.[[/note]]
* OffModel: Their eye reflections don't always stay polygonal, occasionally switching to the rounded style of other ponies'.
* PaletteSwap: If even that--one of the two Crystal Pony fillies shown as part of Princess Celestia's projection of the Crystal Empire in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E1TheCrystalEmpirePart1 The Crystal Empire - Part 1]]" is nearly a Crystal Pony version of Apple Bloom, complete with recolored bow.
* SlaveRace: King Sombra treated them as this during his rule 1000 years ago.
* ToylessToylineCharacter: There are toys of ten other ponies in Crystal Pony form, but no toys of any natural Crystal Ponies.
* YouAreNumberSix: Most of the ones listed in the show's credits, though they presumably aren't numbered in-universe.

In the studio files she's still listed as "Stormwalker", the book wasn't updated to reflect the change in the show[[/note]]
* ElementalHair: Cloudchaser's hair looks like a cool breeze of wind within the clouds.
* HairDecorations: Flitter wears a pink bow.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Spitfire pairs up Cloudchaser and Bulk Biceps as a team in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]".
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: Besides Flitter's [[HairDecorations hair bow]] and Cloudchaser having thicker eye outlines, they have different mane styles and their color schemes are slightly different. (Due to their similar color schemes and the fact that the two are always seen together in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy Hurricane Fluttershy]]", they are commonly assumed to be sisters, but this has not been officially confirmed.)
* {{Motif}}: Both their names and character design are themed after the breezy sky which alludes to their talent of flying and weather control.
* OCStandIn: Flitter and Cloudchaser are depicted by fans as sisters due to their similarities in color scheme, their closeness to each other and are often seen together.
%%* SpikyHair: Cloudchaser
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Flitter's pink bow and Cloudchaser's spiky, punky mane suggest they could be this.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Mane]]: Both of them, though Cloudchaser's look more white

-->'''Debut:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 The Return of Harmony - Part 2]]"

A pink earth pony who briefly appears in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E2TheReturnOfHarmonyPart2 The Return of Harmony - Part 2]]" floating across the screen during Discord's reign of chaos. She appeared to be more of a silly pony than dear Derpy and that's saying quite a bit. Her cutie mark is [[TalkingWithSigns a machine screw and a baseball]], leading naturally to the FanNickname "Screwball". Given that she showed up as a visual gag it's unknown if she'll ever appear again in the show, but a pony that makes a goofy face doesn't get away from ''this'' fandom. She eventually got a couple of cameos in IDW's ''Friendship is Magic'' [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW comic book series]], showing that she does exist outside of Discord's rule.

* AdultsDressedAsChildren: She wears a propeller beanie. A headgear known to be worn by children, [[ManChild childish characters]] and, in some cases, mentally deranged individuals.
* TheCameo: In the comic books, she shows up on ''Friendship is Magic'' Issue #1 [[http://issuu.com/idwpublishing/docs/mylittlepony_01-preview-embargoeduntilnov28/25 page 3]]/[[http://issuu.com/idwpublishing/docs/mylittlepony_01-preview-embargoeduntilnov28/17 Dynamic Forces Cover RE]] scaring a couple of artist Andy Price's cats and on ''Friendship is Magic'' Issue #9 [[http://i.newsarama.com/images/MyLittlePony09-cvrA.jpg Cover A]] swooping through Ponyville.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: She has swirls instead of pupils. Might just be WingdingEyes though.
* HatOfFlight: She seems to be using her propeller beanie to hover through the air like a helicopter.
* NiceHat: A little propeller beanie.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as Discord's loving daughter who may or may not possess some level of [[RealityWarper reality warping powers]] similar to her father's and is also friends with Derpy and Screwy. Her relationship/connection with Diamond Tiara is also often explored due to their similarities in color schemes.
* RuleOfPerception: The cross eyes, the propeller beanie, the lip playing and the screw and baseball cutie mark is a visual cue to the audience that this pony is quite mad.
* RuleOfSymbolism: She, among others, are essentially a representation of the madness and chaos that is happening in Ponyville and its inhabitants. Whether she is real (an altered pony) or just another conjuration of Discord is unknown - though as shown with the comics, it could be both - she appears to look like that normally, and could have first come into being as a result of Discord's chaos.
* WingdingEyes: Her [[ExoticEyeDesigns swirly eyes]] might just be a [[RuleOfPerception visual sign]] that she is under some sort of mind altering spell.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NicoleOliver[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/mouthnoize/status/403334283659464704 this]] tweet by Creator/NicoleOliver[[/note]]

A uniquely slender and statuesque unicorn with a white coat and light pink mane that appeared as Fancypants's companion in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]". Her cutie mark is three fleur-de-lis, two purple and one golden. This pony quickly captured the viewers' attention both because of her unusual design (with coloring resembling Princess Celestia in her youth) and attention-grabbing behavior. The fandom has been unable to decide on a backstory for her, and even her FanNickname has been a point of contention with "Fleur de Lis" seeming the most popular choice; Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame later [[http://i.imgur.com/Aa73diQ.png made]] "Fleur Dis Lee" her official name, and [[http://derpiboo.ru/281793 described]] [[http://imgur.com/a/vdQeA her]] as a supermodel. She was described as a "[[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/13552729/2326061869 lovely]] [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83737&view=findpost&p=1960744 unicorn]]" in the show's script.

* [[AttentionWhore Attention Horse]]: She spends half her screen time striking poses and acting vaguely clingy towards Fancypants.
* FleurDeLis: Her cutie mark, which led to her name.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Based off Princess Luna's character model rather than the standard model used for ponies.
* OCStandIn: She is depicted by fans as Fancypants' wife, fiance or lover due to how [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace really close]] she can get to Fancy Pants without annoying him. She has also been thought of as a model of sorts due to her constant posings and flamboyant movement; Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame has since officially [[http://derpiboo.ru/281793 described]] [[http://imgur.com/a/vdQeA her]] as a supermodel.
* OffscreenTeleportation: During her thirty seconds on screen, if the camera is off her for any amount of time she tends to be in a different spot in relation to Fancypants, such as nuzzling him from one side, then relaxing on his back on the other in half a second.
* SkunkStripe: It's hard to see but she has a white one going through her mane and tail.
* SpoiledSweet: She spends the ''other'' half of her thirty seconds of screen time helping Fancypants up after his collision with Rarity, and picking up Rarity's dropped bags.
* TrophyWife: Seems to be this to Fancypants (in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]", at least).
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She isn't seen accompanying Fancypants to the garden party at the end of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E9SweetAndElite Sweet and Elite]]" or the royal wedding at the end of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]". She reappears by Fancy's side in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E8RarityTakesManehattan Rarity Takes Manehattan]]", though.
* WingedUnicorn: When Fleur was first introduced in the Canterlot expansion of Creator/{{Gameloft}}'s ''VideoGame/MyLittlePony'' LicensedGame, [[http://i.imgur.com/Aa73diQ.png she was]] [[http://derpiboo.ru/281793 an Alicorn]], leading to a lot of pokes at Gameloft's error. [[http://imgur.com/a/vdQeA In the next update]], which included elements from ''Equestria Girls'', they fixed Fleur back to a unicorn, and [[AscendedGlitch replaced her story with one that suggested that while she was at a photo shoot, a Changeling replaced her but accidentally took on an Alicorn form before it was discovered by Fleur's friends and was chased away]].

When Rainbow Dash tries to sneak back into a hospital she's been discharged from, the hospital staff is alerted to her presence! A frantic chase ensues, complete with ''[[StockSoundEffect loud]] [[AngryGuardDog barking]]'' coming from the pursuing ponies, which ends when Rainbow Dash is cornered outside Twilight's library. We discover the barking was in fact coming from a disheveled ''mare'' wearing a hospital gown. Apparently she's a patient who decided to join the pursuit on her own, and she's quickly herded back to the hospital by its security guard Night Watch. "Barking Mad" is the name used by the storyboardists, while the fandom initially took to "Screw Loose" (based on her cutie mark of a loose screw) as her FanNickname, but Enterplay's CollectibleCardGame made "Screwy" her official name ("Barking Mad" did make it onto Screwy's card, but not as a name).

Two Pegasus brothers, Thunderlane a stallion and Rumble a colt. Thunderlane is a slate gray, silver-maned pony who suffers from a cold during Ponyville's turn at [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E22HurricaneFluttershy providing water for Cloudsdale]]. Said cold eventually lands eight pegasi in the hospital. Thunderlane later attends the wedding during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2]]" as well as the Wonderbolt Academy during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]".

* [[DudeLooksLikeALady Colt Looks Like a Filly]]: Rumble's face has the standard filly shape.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Thunderlane's coughing on "Hurricane Fluttershy". Rainbow Dash thought it was an attempt at skipping the event. It proved to be a disastrous mistake as we later learn that his coughing was actually real. He was infected with a highly contagious disease known as the "feather flu" and it has managed to infect eight other ponies costing Ponyville the prize they were aiming for and almost causing the cancellation of the event itself if it weren't for Rainbow Dash's {{determinat|or}}ion and Fluttershy's [[TheCavalry timely assistance]] (however small it may have been).
* LazyBum: Rainbow Dash spends most of "Hurricane Fluttershy" convinced that Thunderlane's planning to shirk his duty to raise a hurricane. She's wrong ''this'' time, but given she works with him on a regular basis, her suspicions may have good grounding.
* {{Motif}}: Thunderlane's character design (dark gray coat and a thunder cloud cutie mark) pretty much tells you that something bad's going to happen.

She also makes a couple of background appearances in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E7WonderboltsAcademy Wonderbolts Academy]]", albeit [[OffModel with a different mane-and-tail style]]. She is in fact the OriginalCharacter of storyboard artist [[http://sibsy.deviantart.com/ Sabrina "Sibsy" Alberghetti]] who is based on herself.

[[http://fav.me/d47hb6p First]] [[http://sibsy.blogspot.com/2011/08/confound-these-ponies.html appeared]] on Sibsy's Website/DeviantArt account and blog as a then-unnamed pony in response to the trending Internet phenomenon of making "ponysonas" or pony personas that's been occuring throughout the fandom and even within the crew themselves. [[http://fav.me/d47xkjb Fans subsequently dubbed her]] as ''Wild Fire'' and Sibsy called her by that name [[http://fav.me/d48w321 from]] [[http://fav.me/d4wnsuy then]] [[http://fav.me/d521is7 on]], which Enterplay's eventual CollectibleCardGame would [[https://twitter.com/BejotyGames/status/409473551565979648 later]] [[https://twitter.com/TheRealSibsy/status/409761898238709761 make]] the pony's official name.

[[http://fav.me/d4xhzht After a pony drawn in the "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1" storyboard coincidentally looked similar]], [[ThrowItIn Sibsy got permission from art director Ridd Sorensen for that pony to be hers]], and thus, Wild Fire made her official debut within the show itself as a background pony. While the show's pairing of Wild Fire with Lucky Clover was chosen at random, Sibsy [[http://fav.me/d4ygtyx later]] [[http://sibsy.blogspot.com/2012/05/wild-fire-gets-lucky.html sketched]] the two ponies together.

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], [[http://fav.me/d5ssq33 she was going to be one of the main cadets in "Wonderbolts Academy"]], but [[WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings because some other crew members tried to sneak their ponies into the show without permission]], one of her two {{Palette Swap}}s in that episode was created to take her role there as a precaution, though a few traces of her (including a couple of OffModel appearances in the background) remained in the final cut (presumably as {{Blooper}}s). However, [[ShaggyDogStory it turned out that apparently she was officially approved]], and so Sibsy has planned to try to get her in the show again as a small cameo in possible future work.

She also makes various cameos in IDW's comics, such as in the first issue of ''[[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Friendship is Magic]]'' [[spoiler:flying around carrying Lucky Clover around happily after being saved from changelings.]]

* AuthorAvatar: Wild Fire was created as a pony version of Sibsy.
%%* CreatorCameo: Though Sibsy didn't voice her.
* OfficialCouple: With [[AllThereInTheScript Lucky Clover]].
* OCStandIn: Being originally a ponysona of Sibsy, fans would usually base her characterization on her creator and how she is depicted by her. She is often depicted as a feisty pony and/or a DeadpanSnarker who likes race cars. She leaves behind a [[IncendiaryExponent trail of fire and smoke whenever she flies fast]]. The smoke trail later became official on page 17 of ''Friendship is Magic'' comic book issue #1.

[[folder:"Uncle Curio" the Shopkeeper]]

-->'''Debut & Speaking Appearance:''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E5MagicDuel Magic Duel]]"

An earth pony who runs a curio shop in the back alleys of Canterlot. Initially reluctant to sell the powerful and dangerous Alicorn Amulet, he quickly changes his mind when Trixie throws a large bag of bits on the counter.
* CaptainErsatz: His appearance bears a strong resemblance to the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/earth_king_8231.jpg Earth King]] in WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.
* EveryManHasHisPrice[=/=]OnlyInItForTheMoney : He loses any sense of caution and responsibility about giving Trixie, a pony he had just met, something as dangerous as the Alicorn Amulet the moment she offers him a large sum of money.
** {{Greed}} : His FatalFlaw. He gave in when presented with enough gold despite knowing the danger.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: They look more like regular horses, to the point of lacking cutie marks.

A Pegasus daughter and father. Zippoorwhill just recently got her cutie mark and wanted the Ponytones to perform at her cuteceañera.

* CheerfulChild: Zippoorwhill
* DaddysGirl: It's obvious Zippoorwhill and her dad are really close.
* GlassesGirl: Zippoorwhill again.
* [[HumanHummingBird Filly Hummingbird]]: Zippoorwhill's wings buzz like Scootaloo's... But she's almost never seen walking.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: The father is fairly bulky while Zippoorwhill is tiny; just big enough to sit on her dad's shoulder.
* NoNameGiven: The dad wasn't really given a name. [[http://www.reddit.com/r/listofponies/comments/1ze9md/pegasus_m_coatwhite_maneblack_eyesgreen_cmguitar/ Reddit]] voted for "Nightjar" (the family of songbirds that includes whippoorwills) as his FanNickname.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: They are very stylized for {{Bit Character}}s
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Zippoorwhill" or "Zipporwhill"? It's been spelled as both.
* SpoiledSweet: Zippoorwhill wears a CoolCrown, she just got her father to buy her a puppy, and she's having the Ponytones perform at her cuteceñera. But instead of being boastful, she's presented as really excitable and nice. Even Fluttershy notes how kind Zippoorwhill is.
* UnexplainedAccent: Both of them sound Latino.

** She appears in the movie ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''. Also, when the official Hub website held a poll for who would be the 7th pony cut-out, DJ Pon-3 [[WolverinePublicity was the only background pony that you could vote for.]] Her role in ''[[MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks]]'' appears more significant, given that one of the prequel shorts is dedicated on her, and the merch for the film includes her car (as well as the fact the film is based on a BattleOfTheBands theme).

* ForWantOfANail: The story behind her original appearance is that an animator crossed her eyes for his/her own amusement, then attempted to put another pony in front of her to obscure the abnormality. However, during rendering, the other pony glitched, revealing Derpy to the world. If that pony hadn't failed to render, we wouldn't have one of the most iconic ponies in the fandom.
