The supporting and minor characters that help fill out the series but don't fit nicely into other categories. These are characters that are more or less the Supporting Cast and they're actively involved in the plot of an episode (and don't fit into another category such as [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicManeFamilyMembers Mane Family Members]] or [[Characters/FriendshipIsMagicCelebronies Celebronies]]). The next step down from here are the [[Characters/{{Friendship Is Magic-Background Ponies}} Background Ponies]] who largely lack distinct in-show personalities though may still have a few lines or minor impact.

[[folder:Mayor Mare]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayor_pony_3355.jpg]]

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon "Friendship Is Magic, Part 1" ("Mare in the Moon")]]

-->Voiced by Creator/CathyWeseluck

A beige Earth pony with a wavy gray ([[spoiler:[[DyeHard naturally pink]]]]) mane and tail, Mayor [[AllThereInTheScript Mare]] is a somewhat ineffectual leader who doesn't seem to carry as much authority as Twilight, the official representative of Princess Celestia in Ponyville.

* AlliterativeName: If you include her title.
* AllThereInTheScript: TheMerch (specifically, [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391355776 her and Time Turner's trading card]] and a couple of shirts featuring her) has made her FanNickname "Mayor Mare" AscendedFanon.
* AuthorityInNameOnly: Played with, as while Twilight Sparkle tends to have more "weight" than her, both Celestia and Luna recognizes Mayor Mare as an authority figure and treat her with such respect.
* BlueEyes
* CoolOldLady: [[VagueAge Or at least middle-aged lady.]]
** Likely just wanting to be seen as one. Age and grey hair likely being seen as an Authority/Status symbol for office holders.
* ADogNamedDog: In a land populated largely by ponies, she's a mare named ''Mare''. Kind of fitting, given that the town she's Mayor of is named ''Pony''ville.
* DyeHard: [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential "Ponyville Confidential"]] reveals that her mane and tail are naturally [[spoiler:pink]].
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: She wasn't given a name until her and Time Turner's trading card. Even the show's scripts only list her by her title of Mayor (according to [[http://everfreeradio.com/?p=2278 an interview]] with Creator/CathyWeseluck), which [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/221363159921991680 may]] still be the case in season 3.
* {{Expy}}: She looks like a duller and older version of Flitter Flutter in G3.5 and even shares a job with her. [[spoiler:Plus her mane and tail are [[DyeHard naturally]] pink, similar to Flitter Flutter's pink-and-purple.]]
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Played with:
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E7Dragonshy "Dragonshy"]], she's nowhere to be seen and it's Twilight who informs the townsponies about the dragon smoke and Princess Celestia's orders to her to solve the problem.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E11WinterWrapUp "Winter Wrap Up"]], the only duty of her office that Mayor Mare exercises is to give an inspirational speech that fails to motivate the town to get their job done on time but after Twilight shows that she has better organizational skills than the rest of the town, Mayor Mare is seen to work just as hard as everypony else through the night.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E22ABirdInTheHoof "A Bird in the Hoof"]], her request to speak with Celestia was enough for the princess to cut the party short.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver "The Best Night Ever"]], she apparently went to Canterlot for the Grand Galloping Gala (the beginning of it, at least).
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero "Lesson Zero"]], she's seen relaxing outside (until she notices the commotion).
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed "Luna Eclipsed"]] she's the one behind Nightmare Night's celebrations.
* PowerHair: Her mane seems to be tied into a tight bun in the back.
* RepetitiveName: Her title and name are very similar.
* [[spoiler: [[RoseHairedGirl Rose Maned Mare]]: This was proven in Ponyville Confidential.]]
* RulingCouple: Implied during the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed "A Friend in Deed"]] where she's shown next to a stallion of her age with a scroll Cutie Mark that implies an administrative talent. A young mare with a hammer Cutie Mark (implying she's a judge) is with them, hinting she's their daughter.
* StealthPun: She's the ''mare'' of Ponyville. The old grey (haired) mare at that. And if she seems ineffective at her job, it's because [[HurricaneOfPuns she ain't what she used to be]].
* VagueAge: Unlike with the Cakes (whom WordofGod has specifically stated to be middle-aged), her exact age is difficult to pin down. Her mane and tail are only [[DyeHard dyed]] gray, and [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed "A Friend in Deed"]] shows her with what seems to be a husband and an adult daughter, though it's possible they may simply be other members of the town council.
* [[WhiteHairedPrettyGirl White Maned Pretty Mare]]: [[spoiler: This is actually subverted, as her mane is actually pink.]]
* YouALLLookFamiliar: Not usually, but when she's shown from overhead in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E14SuitedForSuccess "Suited For Success"]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver "The Best Night Ever"]], and [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed "A Friend in Deed"]], multiple copies of her appear at once.
* [[YoungerThanTheyLook Younger Than She Looks]]: [[spoiler: Her mane and tail are naturally ''pink'', and she dyes them gray; though she may simply be embarrassed by the color.]]

[[folder:Zecora]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zecora_9590.jpg]]

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E9BridleGossip "Bridle Gossip"]]

--> Voiced by Brenda Crichlow[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/#!/AndreaLibman/status/139005174147579905 this]] tweet by Andrea Libman (although she misspelled her name as "Chrichlow") and [[http://imgur.com/egRde this]] email from RED Management[[/note]]

A mysterious zebra who lives in the Everfree Forest. Most of the ponies distrust her at first because of her unusual appearance, and [[PoorCommunicationKills her seemingly cryptic warnings don't help her reputation]]. Afterwards she becomes a helpful ally towards the ponies, using her knowledge of magical herbs and creatures to assist the six.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: WordOfGod is that they wanted Zecora to be speaking authentic Swahili in "Bridle Gossip" but they didn't have the time or resources. Instead they got the voice actor to make up some African-sounding gibberish. [[http://images.wikia.com/mlp/images/9/91/Swahili.png Lauren Faust said that she likes to imagine Zecora is speaking Zebra in lieu of Swahili.]]
* BilingualBonus [=/=] ThisIsMyNameOnForeign: "Zecora" means "zebra" in the Oromo language of Ethiopia.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: While Zecora is clearly female, she has the squared off muzzle and lack of eyelashes as a male.
* BlueEyes
* BlackCloak / InTheHood: Zecora wears an eerie cloak with a face-concealing hood during her debut episode. It can be infered she wears it for protection, as the road to her hut crosses through a large patch of Poison Joke.
* FantasticRacism: A victim of it.
* [[FriendToAllChildren Friend To All Foals]]: She leads the foals around on Nightmare Night. [[FridgeBrilliance This makes sense when you consider the fact that Apple Bloom, who's a filly, was the first to befriend her.]]
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Appears to have glowing sinister yellow eyes sometimes when her face is hidden under her cloak though that could just be the perception of the mane cast seeing her as an "evil enchantress".
* GoodAllAlong
* TheHermit
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: At the end of her debut episode, her wish for friends comes true when the ponies finally befriend her. By the episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E4LunaEclipsed Luna Eclipsed]], it would seem that the town has embraced her as she leads an event on Nightmare Night.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Applebloom, the first pony to make friends with her, is still the pony that has the most screentime with her.
* LargeHam: "Beware, BEWARE, you ponyfolk!"
* LighterAndSofter: She sounds considerably less... sinister when she recalls the way she warned the ponies about the Poison Joke.
* [[MagicalNegro Magical Zebra]]
* MasterOfIllusion: In "Luna Eclipsed", Zecora tells the fillies about Nightmare Moon and uses green dust to conjure up illusions of her.
* TheMentor: WordOfGod is that [[WhatCouldHaveBeen she was meant to be an alternate mentor to Twilight Sparkle]] at first but the de-emphasis of adventure stories in the first season (because slice-of-life stories were easier to write quickly) caused the idea to fall through.
* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: Though unlike most examples the town actually sees her every month when she comes into town but the fact she lives alone in the woods (the Everfree Forest no less) that everypony fears makes everypony unfairly assume she's an evil witch.
* OutOfFocus: She is mostly absent from Season 1, appearing only in "Bridle Gossip" and "Swarm of the Century".
** Averted in Season 2 as she's had several small roles in several episodes.
* PoorCommunicationKills: When it came to the Poison Joke, if she'd just told the ponies it was a poisonous plant instead of speaking in cryptic rhyme to an already suspicious and fearful group, then the rest of the episode would have gone a lot differently.
** Possibly justified by the fact that she was new in Ponyville, so she was probably still learning pony language.
* RhymesOnADime
** Particularly impressive in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]]", where she sets herself up to make a rhyme with "tooth" before she sees that Apple Bloom chipped her tooth (though from Apple Bloom's posture, it was an easy guess).
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Closed captions spell her name as "Zakora."
* StealthHiBye: How she exits at the end of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]].
* TranslationConvention: When alone in her hut, she talks to herself in English even though her first language appears to be the pseudo-Swahili she yells in when pissed.
* WitchDoctor

[[folder:Miss Cheerilee]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Cheerilee_6811.jpg]]

-->'''First Appearance (Background):''' "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters Boast Busters]]" \\
'''Full Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie "Call of the Cutie"]]

-->Voiced by NicoleOliver[[note]]according to [[http://madponies.podomatic.com/entry/2011-10-17T14_29_06-07_00 these]] [[http://everfreeradio.com/?p=933 two]] interviews with NicoleOliver and a reply to [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/2248020657 this]] comment by LaurenFaust[[/note]]

The Ponyville Schoolhouse's current teacher. An Earth Pony, Cheerilee sports a cherry-colored coat with a pink/cherry mane topped with a kind and cheerful attitude. The cartoon uses some nods to the 80s to imply that Cheerilee's age may be around her mid 30s.[[note]]Maybe. In Rarity's flashback in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]", one of the young ponies in the play Rarity is designing costumes for is clearly Cheerilee, as shown by a picture that's part of the toy Ponyville Schoolhouse. So she is definitely close to Rarity's age.[[/note]]

* AllThereInTheScript: Until season 2, her name had only come up in TheMerch and the ExpandedUniverse (specifically, in the toys and the [[IOSGames iOS game]] ''[[http://hasb.ro/pCPZcsFBK103 Twilight Sparkle: Teacher for a Day]]''). It was first mentioned on the show in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero Lesson Zero]]" and she was first addressed by name in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox The Cutie Pox]]".
* ArtisticAge: Appears as a filly in Rarity's {{flashback}} during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]", implying she's about the same age as Rarity. (Cheerilee isn't identified in the episode but the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=756C0547-5056-900B-10C1-5412D2955797 Ponyville Schoolhouse]]'' toy has a picture that shows filly Cheerilee wearing the same costume as in the episode which all but confirms her identity.)
* AscendedExtra: Cheerilee was fairly popular in G3 so Hasbro made her the 8th pony of a Happy Meal toy set from McDonalds. She's also included in a later set.
* BreakoutCharacter: Season 2 is slowly turning her into one.
* ChekhovsGunman: After making a few appearances in ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlp-adventures-in-ponyville Adventures in Ponyville]]'', she remained a silent background pony who happened to be in the opening. Then at the beginning of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie Call of the Cutie]]", she suddenly got a single long scene that gave her an important job and a personality.
* CoolTeacher
* TheEighties: Played for laughs when Cheerilee shows to her class a picture of her younger self wearing typical (and gaudy) 80s attire.
* EightiesHair: "Yes I know, but honestly; that's how everypony was wearing their mane back then."
* EmbarrassingNickname: Creates one without intending to ("Blank Flank") which quickly catches on and is used by the school bullies to humiliate Ponies who still lack a Cutie Mark.
* EraSpecificPersonality: G3 Cheerilee is Rarity's adviser and is mature. G3.5 Cheerilee loves to play, read stories to her little sister Scootaloo and comb her friend's manes in fancy different styles. [=FiM=] Cheerilee is a young adult with a calm and responsible personality and is in charge of educating Ponyville's fillies and colts.
* {{Expy}}: Of G3 and G3.5 Cheerilee.
* FriendToAllChildren: It goes with the territory considering she's loved by all her students, but even Spike seems to like her, even before she gave him a hat for his birthday.
* FriendToBugs: In the toys at least; the ''[[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_US/shop/details.cfm?guid=BE3CDE98-5056-900B-1034-466D8F32E7AD Cheerilee]]'' toy is accompanied by a ladybug.
* GenreSavvy: She's pretty quick to realize that she's being set up with Big Mac. Though nopony would have been counting on a love potion.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: She's a good deal smaller than Big [=McIntosh=], which is extremely noticeable when the Cutie Mark Crusaders try to set them up together.
* IWasQuiteAFashionVictim: Could also be considered a [[AffectionateParody self-deprecating call-back]] to the more...[[http://www.kimsites.net/dreamvalley/9th_edition_ponies.html#rockin_beat_ponies ill-advised G1 My Little Ponies]].
* MsExposition: She often fills this role in the episodes she's in such as explaining what a cutie mark is to a classroom almost full of students who already have theirs.
* NiceHat: She doesn't wear one but happens to have one in her grocery bag (a white fedora with a red band and feather) and gives it to Spike on his birthday.
* OffModel: Quite a few animation errors have happened with her, the most common one being the top of her normally two-toned mane becoming solid-colored.
* OldMaid: She tries to hide her frustration, but it's clear she isn't happy about being one.
* PairTheSpares: A literal case, as the CMC pairs her up with Big [=McIntosh=] in the episode "Hearts and Hooves Day" because she didn't had a date and Big [=McIntosh=] was the only "good" stallion they could find available at that moment.
** ShipTease: After the madness dies down, the last scene of the episode is [[spoiler: Cheerilee and Big [=McIntosh=] going on a picnic. Whether they're going on an actual date or just teasing the Cutie Mark Crusaders is left open]].
* [[RoseHairedGirl Rose Haired Pony]]
* {{Schoolmarm}}: A textbook example of this.
* StepfordSmiler: She displays a type A during "Hearts and Hooves Day".
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Her Cutie Mark looks different in most stock art and the toys. (Strangely, the stock art used on most of the toys' packaging has it match the show instead of the toys.) On top of that, her [[http://www.strawberryreef.com/Index/Name/cheerileeFIMmini.html fully-molded toy]] and [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/File:BBCheerileeCard.jpg collector]] [[http://mylittlewiki.org/wiki/File:BBCheerileeBack.jpg card]] both depict her as a PaletteSwap of Applejack.

[[folder:Mr. & Mrs. Cake]]
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mr_and_Mrs_Cake_6056.jpg]]

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

-->Voiced by TabithaStGermain (Mrs. Cup Cake)[[note]]according to [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1603670/2248020657 this]] comment by LaurenFaust and [[http://imgur.com/egRde this]] email from RED Management[[/note]]

Mr. Carrot Cake and Mrs. Cup Cake are a middle-aged Earth Pony couple. They own Sugarcube Corner, the bakery where Pinkie Pie works, holds her parties and apparently resides as their live-in helper. Kind and friendly, this older couple has shown saintlike patience for Pinkie Pie's antics...especially after the poisonous muffins fiasco (though that wasn't actually her fault) and Pinkie's appetite at the beginning of "Swarm of the Century". So far they're one of the few married couples seen in Ponyville. As of "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes Baby Cakes]]", they're now parents to baby twins Pound and Pumpkin Cake.

* AlliterativeName
* AllThereInTheScript: Until season 2, their first names had only been [[http://comments.deviantart.com/5/37155514/1804064447 revealed]] by WordOfGod and used by the [[http://www.nick.de/shows/1008-my-little-pony-freundschaft-ist-magie German]] and [[http://www.nick.ch/shows/1008-my-little-pony-freundschaft-ist-magie Swiss]] {{Nickelodeon}} and [[http://www.nickjr.de/shows/1008-my-little-pony-freundschaft-ist-magie German]] NickJr websites. They were first referred to by their full names on the show in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes Baby Cakes]]".
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Mrs. Cake's mane looks like pink frosting.
* BenevolentBoss
* FamilyBusiness
* FatAndSkinny
* GingerbreadHouse: The bakery roof is ''literally'' shaped like a gingerbread house with two cupcakes and a slab of rock candy on top.
* HappilyMarried
* [[LikeASonToMe Like A Daughter To Us]]: Pinkie may not ''be'' their biological daughter, [[WordOfGod but they still love her like she is.]]
* MaltShop: For Ponyville's standards, their place acts like this.
* MasculineLinesFeminineCurves
* {{Nice Hat}}s
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: They look purposely older than the other ponies. Mrs. Cake has the same chubby build as Rarity & Sweetie Belle's mom and Mr. Cake sports a LanternJawOfJustice seen on very few other ponies.
* PanickyExpectantFather: Normally Mr. Cake keeps an impeccable aspect but when his twins are finally born, he looks as if he were returning from war with his messy hair, untied bowtie and unshaven beard.
* ParentalSubstitute: While Pinkie Pie isn't their daughter, WordOfGod confirms that they still see her as such.
* PermaStubble: Mr. Cake gets an ''awesome'' version of this while he's waiting for the birth of his twins.
* SupremeChef: The cartoon presented them as this very early on, but their Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness (MMMM to short) definitely cemented them as Supreme Chefs.
* UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn: Pound and Pumpkin Cake, respectively.

[[folder:Pound and Pumpkin Cake]]
[[quoteright:215:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pound_and_pumpkin_cake_by_MasterRottweiler_5114.png]]

--> '''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E12BabyCakes "Baby Cakes"]]

--> Voiced by TabithaStGermain (Pound) and AndreaLibman (Pumpkin)[[note]]both according to [[https://twitter.com/#!/AndreaLibman/status/158608461507215362 these]] [[https://twitter.com/#!/AndreaLibman/status/162973658627833857 two]] tweets by Andrea Libman[[/note]]

Mr. and Mrs. Cake's twin babies. Pound is a Pegasus colt and Pumpkin is a Unicorn filly, explained by Mr. and Mrs. Cake having Unicorn and Pegasus ancestors respectively. Pinkie adores them as new playmates.

* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: Subverted; the twins are cute and all but as Pinkie found out the hard way, require a ''lot'' of responsibility. [[spoiler: Particularly when the [[SuperStrength Pegasus]] and [[WildMagic Unicorn]] genes really start kicking in.]]
* BrainyBaby: Both babies are incredibly intelligent for their age.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Even at the age of one month, they're inseparable.
* ChildProdigy: We'd better hope this is what the twins are, because if their abilities are only average for Pegasus and Unicorn babies, it would mean Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle and Filly!Fluttershy are/were developmentally disabled.
** Rainbow Dash guesses (correctly) that Pound will probably be "all over the place" once he starts using his wings, and Rarity says that baby unicorns get strange magic surges that come and go. Those comments imply that the babies' abilities are getting a temporary boost when they first emerge, but only future appearances will tell for sure.
** Also suggested for Pound Cake is that the only reasons he flies so well so young is a combination of his SuperStrength and the fact that he still has a body small enough for his wings to carry. Scootaloo and filly!Fluttershy have/had the inverse, that is wings too small to carry their bodies.
* ColorCodedWizardry: Pumpkin's magic aura is light blue.
* CrossDressingVoices: Well, Pound Cake is male and both the actresses are female, so...
* HollywoodGenetics: Mr. Cake's great-great-great-great-grandfather was a Unicorn and Mrs Cake's aunt's-second-cousin-twice-removed was a Pegasus; "that makes sense right?"
** ContinuityNod: [[WordOfGod Lauren Faust]] confirmed similar scenarios were possible during season one.
** And to be fair, Mr. Cake's explanation of why Pound Cake is a pegasus does mean that there would be a pegasus in Mrs. Cakes family that is more closely related to her, and thus could pass on the genes.
* [[InnocentProdigy Innocent Prodigies]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: They sort of have one, but it's more of an indicator to show the audience that they're about to get into trouble.
* MeaningfulName: Pound Cake. Guess what he likes to do?
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: They have a limited version of this when their antics reduce Pinkie Pie to tears.]]
* OralFixationFixation: Pumpkin is constantly trying to chew on anything she can get her hooves on.
* [[spoiler: PintsizedPowerhouse: Pound is strong enough to lift and carry an adult pony at high speeds in flight.]]
* SilentSnarker: Quite a lot, [[CuteButCacophonic at least when they're silent]].
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Pumpkin is colored exactly like her father.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: According to Mr. Cake, a pony of one type can have offspring of another type, depending on the family tree.
* [[spoiler: WallCrawl: Pound can achieve this using his flight.]]
* [[spoiler: WildMagic: Pumpkin rivals Twilight for magical prowess at only one month old, levitating herself and passing through solid objects.]]

[[folder:Snips & Snails]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/snipsnails_2823.png]]

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters "Boast Busters"]]

-->Voiced by Lee Tockar (Snips) and RichardIanCox (Snails)

Two Unicorn colts with a penchant for making trouble.

* {{Adorkable}}: Both of them, Snails especially
* [[AttentionWhore Attention Horses]]: They actually ENJOY the humiliating Gabby Gums article the CMC wrote about them, and repeat their chewing gum accident for an audience.
* {{Beady Eyed Loser}}s
* BigEater: Snails can chomp half of a cake with a single bite. [[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_CA/play/details.cfm?guid=E300C93D-5056-900B-1050-A310A192B6BD Applejack's game]] from ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlp-adventures-in-ponyville Adventures in Ponyville]]'' also shows them sneaking onto Applejack's farm and eating everything in sight if the player doesn't chase them away.
* BigOlEyebrows: Snips.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Snails plays boke to Snips's tsukkomi, first with the AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering moment and then again during their magic show in "Show Stoppers".
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: In "Boast Busters".
* CanadaEh: Snails sounds like he comes from the Great White North, eh?
* CloudCuckoolander: Snails, often annoying Snips.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Downplayed on the "badass" part, but this still applies; while the two aren't very bright, Snails is one of the few unicorn foals who's been shown using magic (albeit with a bit of difficulty) and can buck Snips pretty far in Ponyville Confidential. They can also run rather quickly and don't even slow down when Spike gets dragged along, adding weight.
** They also both go into the Everfree Forest at night. Given how even ''the mane six'' are shown to be scared of that place several times, day ''or'' night, you gotta admit, that's pretty brave.
*** Or perhaps, in their case, TooDumbToLive...
* TheDitz: Snails is inarguably the least intelligent character on the show.
** [[GeniusDitz But strangely enough, he's the only Unicorn in his class shown using magic even for a basic spell.]]
* {{Dogged Nice Guy}}s: To Trixie.
* EarlyBirdCameo: First appeared in [[http://www.hasbro.com/mylittlepony/en_CA/play/details.cfm?guid=E300C93D-5056-900B-1050-A310A192B6BD Applejack's game]] from ''[[http://www.hubworld.com/my-little-pony/shows/friendship-is-magic/games/mlp-adventures-in-ponyville Adventures in Ponyville]]'', thus earning a bad reputation among players for their thieving ways.
* {{Expy}}: Snails looks like a taller male version of G1's Squirmy.
* {{Fanboy}}s: They're Trixie's biggest fans in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E6BoastBusters Boast Busters]]" and they're shown to be members of the Rainbow Dash Fan Club in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell The Mysterious Mare Do Well]]".
** [[WildMassGuessing If you look carefully, they are the only members of Rainbow Dash's fan club to have t-shirts with Rainbow Dash's picture in a heart. Combined with their possible crush on Trixie, they might have a thing for blue mares.]]
* FatAndSkinny: Snips is short and round while Snails is tall and slender.
* [[FreeRangeChildren Free Range Colts]]: They both go all alone in the middle of night into the ''[[EldritchLocation Everfree Forest]]''.
* GagHaircut: When the duo get their rumps stuck together with bubble gum, the haircut they get to cut the gum out leaves them with bald patches on their butts and tails.
* {{The Klutz}}es: Oh yes, very much.
* LightIsGood: Snails can use light magic, and him and Snips are overall pretty good guys.
* MeaningfulName: "Snips and snails and puppy dog tails -- that's what little boys are made of."
** This could also be a reference to ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' considering the fact that those are some of the ingredients for [[EvilCounterpart The Rowdyruff Boys]], and LaurenFaust worked along side her husband Craig [=McCracken=] on that show.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: They look very different from all of the other ponies. Snips barely even looks like a pony.

A friend of Apple Bloom'th from thchool, the'th an Earth Pony filly with frizzy red hair and glatheth [[CaptainObvious ath well ath a heavy lithp]]. Like Apple Bloom, she starts "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie Call of the Cutie]]" without having discovered her mark and gets teased for it. She gets her cutie mark in the same episode (off-screen): a pair of candy canes due to her love of making candy.

* {{Adorkable}}: Very very much.
* CheerfulChild: "I've got thome peppermint thticks. I made them myself! They'll make you ''thmiiile!''"
* {{Expy}}: Of G1 Twist.
** Her appearance has a noticeable resemblance to PepperAnn.
* {{Meganekko}}
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: She's a bit lankier than most fillies her age and has a more bulbous nose.
* PairTheSpares[=/=]PuppyLove: Surprisingly, the episode "Hearts and Hooves Day" paired her up with "[[FanNickname Truffle Shuffle]]", much to the chagrin of "[[FanNickname Tootsie Flute]]", who was either interested in him or Twist herself.
* QuirkyCurls
* RedheadsAreUncool: She shows several stereotypically nerdy traits, such as a curly red mane and tail, pale coat, large, large glasses, and a nasal speech impediment (she has a hard time pronouncing W's and S's). She is the last one in her class to get her cutie mark before the cutie mark crusaders.
* SweetTooth: "Ith it a powdered donut? Becauth that thounds delithouth!"
* [[SpeechImpediment Thpeech Impediment]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: It's uncertain if she loves eating peppermint sticks...ahem; excuse me; "Peppermint Thtickth" as much as she loves making them.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She appeared to be a good friend of Apple Bloom's in "Call of the Cutie" but ever since Apple Bloom hooked up with the Cutie Mark Crusaders, poor Twist has only talked to her once since then, even though she sometimes still shows up with them.

Canterlot's defenders who serve under Shining Armor. These armored stallions show up wherever Canterlot needs extra security and also serve as the Princesses' personal bodyguards. Pegasus guards are usually seen escorting the princesses or as royal flying carriage pullers. Unicorn guards are generally seen around Canterlot and performing some ceremonial procedures.

* AudibleSharpness: Their wings. The second season gives us evidence that [[RazorWings Pegasus wings actually can be that sharp]].
* BladeOnAStick: The only weapon they've been seen wielding, so far.
* BritishRoyalGuards: the show has its own version of the trope; The Princess Royal Guards of Equestria are as disciplined and stoic as the British Royal Guards. Rainbow Dash annoys them, making small talk and funny faces; the guards don't react to her at all. They only moved a muscle when Fluttershy tries to enter the building they were guarding. [[spoiler: And when Rainbow Dash convinces Philomeena to tickle their noses.]]
* ColorCodedWizardry: Golden yellow (same as Celestia's) or light blue for "normal" unicorn guards, silver gray for the Canterlot Archives unicorn guards.
* CreatorCameo: [[TheQuietOne When they actually speak, anyway.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: See below
** In addition to the bat-winged pegasus guards, the nighttime Canterlot Library guards have darker armor than their gold-armored counterparts.

* PraetorianGuard: They serve as the Princesses' personal bodyguards.
** BodyguardingABadass: They seem to be mostly for show.
* TheQuietOne: They only talk when necessary which is rare in the show.
* RedShirts: They try to subdue Nightmare Moon in the pilot, but end up being subdued themselves.
** Again in "The Canterlot Wedding"
* SeriousBusiness: You will almost always see them wearing a serious face whenever they appear.
** Subverted by one of the guards in the Canterlot library who catches Twilight sneaking around in "It's About Time"; he just cheerfully greets her and opens a door for her before going on his way.
* WingedUnicorn: One of Twilight Sparkle's {{flashback}}s during [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E25ACanterlotWeddingPart1 "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1"]] shows three guards (two light, one dark) with unicorn horns and Pegasus wings; WordOfGod [[http://www.allspark.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=86386&view=findpost&p=2053490 says]] [[http://comments.deviantart.com/4/1453017/2515683692 that]] this was a {{Blooper}}.

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony "Friendship Is Magic, Part 2" ("Elements of Harmony")]]

-->Voiced by Lee Tockar

A large purple scaled [[SeaMonster Sea Serpent]] with orange hair encountered in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E2ElementsOfHarmony Elements of Harmony]] whose thrashing made a river uncrossable blocking the ponies' progress. Not a villain though he was simply distressed that a "tacky little cloud" had sliced off his perfect mustache. Not about to let such a crime against "fabulosity" go unanswered Rarity came to his aid and the ponies were graciously allowed to cross. His [[LargeHam drama queen]] antics and [[AmbiguouslyGay metrosexual]] mindset gave him a notoriety among fans who have dubbed him "Steven Magnet" after a hilariously bad Youtube caption.

* AdvertisedExtra: Despite only appearing in one episode of the show, he's been in 3 different commercials (even saying his "It's so true!" line in the two American ones): the [[TheHub Hub]] commercial seen [[http://see.walmart.com/hasbro/girls-hub/Girls.swf here]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUrDxdlHANI this commercial]], and the British [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm8m-LOqplA Boomerang commercial]] announcing the show's UK premiere.
* AllThereInTheManual: [[http://theponyartcollection.tumblr.com/post/26391734445 His trading card]], the show's script, and [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/210414549281685507 a tweet by one of the show's writers]] all call him a ''sea'' serpent/monster, even though he's only shown in the river, though [[https://twitter.com/M_A_Larson/status/216035777526767616 a later tweet by the same writer]] calls him a river serpent. His trading card also mentions that he has a magnetic personality (referencing his FanNickname).
* AmbiguouslyGay: He's ''absolutely fabulous.''
* AudibleSharpness: His scales do this if you pluck one off
* BlindIdiotTranslation: His name derives from Youtube's "transcribe audio" feature which generally only produces these.
* TheDandy: As much as possible for a naked scaled serpent and something only [[TheFashionista Rarity]] understands.
* FanNickname: Steven Magnet from a [[SoBadItsGood hilarious]] Youtube caption.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Averted when he only has half a mustache. Played straight after Rarity's assistance.
** In fairness to him, he technically has a whole mustache after Rarity's gift.
* {{Kaiju}}: Its a wonder how he fits into that river.
* LargeHam
* NoNameGiven
* NonMammalianHair
* SeaMonster: He's a classic sea serpent, but in a river instead.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: His "mous-STACHE"
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous: Nopony but Rarity takes his dilemma seriously.

-->'''Little Strongheart:''' Wait! Please accept my apologies for what happened on the train, we didn't mean for anyone to be hurt.\\
'''Rainbow Dash:''' Yeah, right.\\
'''Little Strongheart:''' We only wanted the tree. The settler ponies have overtaken the land and have planted an orchard all over it! Because of their thoughtlessness, we can no longer run over our traditional stampeding grounds...

-->Voiced by Erin Mathews[[note]]according to [[http://everfreeradio.com/?p=4102 this]] interview with [[Music/HeyOcean Ashleigh Ball]][[/note]]

A buffalo calf from a tribe of buffaloes in Appleloosa. She is first seen participating in a train heist with a herd of other fellow buffalo tribesmen. Rainbow Dash confronted her during the heist on top of the train but she managed to escape along with the cart they were after (with Spike still on board unbeknownst to them). After befriending Spike, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, she tried to reason with the Chief of her herd and the Apple-loosians on how to settle their differences.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may be sweet and compassionate but that doesn't mean that she can't take care of herself if she needs to (in fact, we see the "Beware" part before the "Nice" part).
* [[CuteBruiser Cute]] LightningBruiser: Comes with being a buffalo naturally but she's nimble enough to jump onto a moving train and fast enough to temporarily outspeed a flying Rainbow Dash while running.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: One of the reasons for her popularity.
* IndianMaiden
* MeaningfulName: Strong enough to defeat Rainbow Dash, compassionate enough to see the settlers' point of view and attempt to find a solution without resorting to violence. [[CaptainObvious And she's little]].
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: In regards to the buffaloes at least; (she's apparently the only buffalo calf in existence and her design looks more like a fawn to some viewers). American bison calves ''are'' a light mahogany color in RealLife however; much lighter than their dark brown parents.
** She's also the only buffalo to wear a headband in the style of northeastern woodland tribes like the Abenaki[[hottip:*: the purple and white band with the look of wampum, together with the feathers being in the rear]]; all the others (especially Chief Thunderhooves's full headdress) seem more styled after plains-dwelling Native Americans. This may be (accidental) FridgeBrilliance, because plains tribes generally didn't let females wear feathered headdreses, while the northeastern ones often did.
* PintSizedPowerhouse
* PowerBlonde
* ShesAManInJapan: In the Polish dub, she's referred to as male.
** What's ironic; [[CrossDressingVoices she's voiced by a woman anyway]].
* SmurfettePrinciple: She seems to be the only female buffalo in her tribe.
* StealthPun: She's a buffalo gal.

The leader of the Buffalo tribe, he was quite angry at how the Apple-loosians planted apple trees over his tribe's stampeding grounds which had been theirs for a very long time. Eventually he, his tribe and the settler ponies learned the value of compromising.

* AppealToTradition: His main argument to why he was so opposed to the settlers planting apple trees over his tribe's stampeding grounds.
* AwesomeMcCoolName
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: The Buffalo tribe all wear eagle feathers, but as the leader, he gets to wear a huge headdress that makes him appear even bigger then he already is.
* LargeAndInCharge: He practically dwarfs the other characters. His head alone is as large as a pony.
* LightningBruiser: Just like other bison, once he gets going, he moves like a freight train.
** GlassCannon: However, a pie managed to do him in, but he got better.
* TastesLikeFriendship: He makes peace with the Appleloosans after discovering how delicious their weapons are.

A unicorn with a pink-frosted donut cutie mark, Pony Joe (or Donut Joe) is an old acquaintance of Twilight Sparkle back in Canterlot. Spike stays at Joe's donut shop during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]", drowning himself in [[DrunkOnMilk hot chocolate and donuts with extra sprinkles]] after the rest of the Mane Six go their separate ways at the Grand Galloping Gala to pursue their own goals instead of hanging out together. Joe later appears as one of the bakers entering the National Dessert Competition in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress MMMystery on the Friendship Express]]", having created a confection called Donutopia.

Until "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress MMMystery on the Friendship Express]]", his ownership of said donut shop had also only been mentioned by said licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]].
* AmericanAccents: Seems to sport a New York sort.
* AscendedExtra: His only appearance in Season 1 consisted of two lines in a single scene.
* TheBartender: Even though he isn't exactly a bartender, "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" treats him as one.
* [[BigBeautifulMan Big Beautiful Stallion]]: Rarity said he'd look good in a tux.
* DrunkOnMilk: Spike treats his chocolate drinks and donuts as if they were alcoholic beverages. In fairness, maybe Spike's one of those people who gets loopy when he's had too much sugar which chocolate drinks and doughnuts would definitely cause.
* IllTellYouWhenIveHadEnough: He has this exchange with Spike in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver The Best Night Ever]]" with him playing the part of TheBartender and Spike as TheAlcoholic.

* LargeHam
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His character design is a bit chubbier compared to the show's other large stallions.
* OldFriend: He has known Twilight Sparkle and Spike for some time before they moved to Ponyville.
* SuddenNameChange: He was called Pony Joe in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E26TheBestNightEver "The Best Night Ever"]], and this name was later used in [[OfficialFanSubmittedContent fan-designed]] licensed [[TheMerch merchandise]], but then he was called Donut Joe upon his return in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress "MMMystery on the Friendship Express"]]. The remainder of the latter episode just calls him Joe (and for simplicity's sake, so does this very wiki).

A young Earth Pony colt with a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinto_horse pinto coat]] and a [[UsefulNotes/BritishAccents British accent]], he recently moved from Trottingham. He attends his first Nightmare Night ever by dressing up as a {{pirate}}.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: One of the few cases of aversion. Despite his pinto coat appearing odd, his coloring is [[http://i.imgur.com/GGKg9.jpg entirely possible]] in horses and ponies.

* NightmareFetishist: He says that Nightmare Night is his favorite night of the year and that having Princess Luna come to Ponyville to frighten them is "scary but fun". Possibly the first pony in history to say that he likes Luna better than Celestia.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: He's both very small and has a spotted coat.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: He has a British accent at the start of ''Luna Eclipsed''; it doesn't hold up the well in the other scenes.
** Justified in that he's moved to a new town where no one else has the accent and he's young enough to lose the accent now that he's surrounded by ponies that don't have it.

A snobby married couple who live in Canterlot. They kick off the plot of "Sweet And Elite" when they insult Rarity's breeding and only shut up when they realize [[UnclePennybags Fancypants]] likes her.

* AlphaBitch: They're not exactly Alpha but they display all the other typical traits.
* [[CityMouse City Mice]]: They do not like small towns like Ponyville.
* {{Expy}}: Very similar to Roderick and Rubella Rat from TinyToonAdventures.
* GratuitousFrench: Why say "hat" when you can say "chapeau"?
* HappilyMarried: These {{Jerkass}}es were made for each other.
* HumblePie: Twice; both times thanks to Fancypants. First when he personally invites Rarity to her balcony seat for the Wonderbolts race ''right in front of them''. The second is at the Garden Party when Fancypants states he likes Rarity and her friends and endorses Rarity's designs, forcing them to suck up to her to save face.
* IdleRich: And proud of it. They think the fact Rarity makes her own hats is embarrassing once they find out she's not upper class.
* {{Jerkass}}es
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: They are keen to look cultured and tasteful, but it seems they know next to nothing and take all their cues from the genuinely refined Fancypants.
* PopularIsDumb
* PreppyName
* {{Rich Bitch}}es
* ShadowArchetype: For Rarity. They have the same fussy and selective tastes she does, and her slight shame about coming from Ponyville is amplified when they let her know they think it's a hick town. The important difference between them is Jet Set and Upper Crust use high society as a way to look down on other ponies, and don't have the strength of character to state their own opinion. Rarity on the other hand, is gracious and polite and not afraid to stick up for her friends.
* SkunkStripe: Upper Crust has a purple-and-white swirled mane.
* SlobsVersusSnobs: One very unsympathetic Snob half at the garden party with the Mane 6 being on the sympathetic Slob side.
* {{Upper Class Twit}}s
* [[YesMan Yes Ponies]]: Their approval of Rarity is tied to that of Fancypants.

* AmericanAccents: He sounds like an easygoing Southern gentleman.
* BigOlEyebrows
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Especially when Cheerilee calls him by his first name in front of her class.
** LastNameBasis: He prefers to be called "Rich", for obvious reasons.
* [[GoodParents Good Parent]]: If anything, he's aware of Diamond Tiara's rotten personality and it's obvious that he wants to fix it.
* HonestJohnsDealership: It's implied that he runs Ponyville's equivalent to Wal-Mart.
* MeaningfulName: He's filthy rich. His cutie mark, 3 money bags each with a dollar sign, doesn't hide this fact either.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: He looks considerably older than other adult stallions seen in the cartoon.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Unlike his spoiled daughter, he is quite amicable, honorable and doesn't approve of her rude behavior towards the Apple family. Though it's kind of a toss up, because although he acts this way toward his suppliers (which the Apple Family are), he's implied to engage in unfair business practices to undercut his competition and monopolize the local market.
** Undercutting/destroying the competition and monopolizing the market is the end result/goal of a successfull business. And given how ready the Apples were to accept a Winner Take All challenge for the local market/territory VS the Flim Flam brothers, Pony mentality might accept this as natural. Anti-trust issues does not seem to be a factor in Ponyville.

*** Also, Series/{{House}}.
* GoodIsNotDumb: While he's genuinely concerned when Rainbow comes back into the hospital groaning, he quickly sees through her ploy (even if he misunderstands why she's doing it).
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He is only wearing the upper half of a doctor's uniform.
* NoNameGiven: He isn't actually named in the show itself.
* StockCostumeTraits: The good doctor wears a regular doctor's uniform [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal except that he isn't wearing any pants]].

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed "A Friend in Deed"]]

-->Voiced by Richard Newman[[note]]according to [[https://twitter.com/#!/AndreaLibman/status/171324451722506241 this]] tweet by Andrea Libman[[/note]]

A newcomer to Ponyville, Cranky is an old donkey who just wants peace and quiet after years of wandering around Equestria. [[spoiler: It turns out part of the reason he's so bitter and lonely is because he's been searching for his long-lost love, Matilda. Pinkie reunites the two at the end of "A Friend in Deed", making him more friendly, but still preferring the quiet life.]]

* AlliterativeName
* [[ButtMonkey Butt Donkey]]: Poor, poor Cranky.
* {{Determinator}}: He shows incredible perseverance in the face of Pinkie Pie's onslaught of friendship, and later we find out [[spoiler: he's been wandering Equestria for decades tirelessly searching for Matilda.]]
* DeadpanSnarker
* DodgyToupee: His original one does match the tip of hair on his tail, but is revealed to be one in a scene of CringeComedy. The replacement Pinkie gives him, the Rarity-made "dreamboat special," doesn't match at all.
* [[spoiler:[[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice King]]]]
* EmbarrassingMiddleName
* FailedASpotCheck: He could have [[ForWantOfANail avoided so much anguish]] [[spoiler: If he had searched Matilda's dressing room a little more thoroughly]].
* FurryBaldness: He's treated as bald because of his lack of a mane. This despite the fact that he still has a coat
* GrumpyOldMan
* [[spoiler: HiddenHeartOfGold: He kept his cherished memories of Matilda hidden from everyone, until Pinkie Pie found out.]]
* HumiliationConga: Slightly subverted, as he did nothing to deserve one, and Pinkie Pie caused it totally by accident.
* IneffectualLoner
* [[spoiler: IntergenerationalFriendship: With Pinkie Pie, after she reunites him with Matilda.]]
* [[spoiler: IWasQuiteALooker]]
* [[spoiler: IWillWaitForYou]]
* {{Jerkass}}: No pun intended.
** [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold]]
* LonersAreFreaks: [[spoiler:Subverted. At the end, Pinkie recognizes that some people genuinely like solitude]]
* MeaningfulName: Is, well, cranky. [[spoiler: Subverted when he's reunited with Matilda.]]
* [[MyNameIsNotDurwood My Name Is Not Doodle]]: Or at least, not the name you're allowed to call him, [[spoiler:except Matilda.]]
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Matilda.]]
* ShadowArchetype: A positive example to Pinkie Pie. Unlike Pinkie, who is idealistic, extroverted, chaotic, and energetic, he's cynical, introverted, orderly, and sedate.
* StubbornMule: Well, actually a donkey, but they're also known for being stubborn.
* [[spoiler: [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: It makes sense that Pinkie wanted him to be happy, after seeing his reaction to his reunion with Matilda.]]

Another donkey resident of Ponyville, and a good friend of Pinkie Pie. [[spoiler: Also Cranky's long-lost girlfriend.]]

* [[spoiler:ChekhovsGunman: You know when a lady donkey is introduced early in an episode about a grumpy male donkey, that you'll see her again by the end.]]
* [[spoiler:IWasQuiteALooker]]
* [[spoiler:IWillWaitForYou: She seems to have stayed single all her life, waiting for Cranky to find her]]
* [[spoiler:LoveAtFirstSight: and second sight! Aww.]]
* [[spoiler:NewOldFlame: for Cranky]]
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: with Cranky]]
* [[spoiler:PoorCommunicationKills: Matilda wrote Cranky a note explaining why she left and how to find her. He didn't notice it, resulting in years of heartache and separation for them both.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: The number of spoilers should be a clue that she's more important then initially.

-->'''Debut:''' [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E23PonyvilleConfidential "Ponyville Confidential"]]

* TheVoiceless
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: His original name would have been "Milquetoast" and he would have been Namby-Pamby's younger brother.

* RedheadsAreUncool: She shows several stereotypically nerdy traits, such as a curly red mane and tail, pale coat, large, large glasses, and a nasal speech impediment (she has a hard time pronouncing W's and S's). She is the last one in her class to get her cutie mark before the cutie mark crusaders.
