Added DiffLines:

* Lightning Dust only appeared in one episode in the third season, but her VillainyFreeVillain status lends her to DracoInLeatherPants treatment. Further, she makes a perfect EvilCounterpart to Rainbow Dash, being just as skilled as her and having a similar personality, only more selfish and reckless. While she hasn't appeared in the show since, it's common to find her depicted as Rainbow's rival in a manner similar to Twilight and Trixie.
** WordOfGod is that her human counterpart was going to appear in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'' as a member of the Shadowbolts, but was replaced with Indigo Zap, a PaletteSwap of her. Cue cries of TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter since most would have preferred seeing Lightning Dust again.

* Queen Chrysalis came out of ''[[OutsideContextProblem nowhere,]]'' only hinted at once (in an online ''[[AmericanNewspapers New York Daily News]]'' [[http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/television/hub-pony-trots-a-heartwarming-royal-wedding-tale-article-1.1064242 article]]) during all the crazy hype Creator/TheHub and Creator/{{Hasbro}} did for the season 2 finale, most of which was focused on the other new characters Princess Cadance and Shining Armor ([[MerchandiseDriven since they're the ones with toys]]), and took the fandom by ''storm''. [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/04/drawfriend-stuff-402-chrysalis-edition.html All the fanart]] created literally within ''a day'' of her appearance shows just how far being a competent and dangerous (and scary) villain with a unique design and magnificent VillainSong will get you.

\n* Toola Roola and Coconut Cream, the fillies in the B storyline of "Fame and Misfortune". Them getting over their fights with each other through reading friendship lessons endeared them to the mane cast and the audience, becoming the only truly nice characters introduced in the episode. It also helps that the two are [[MythologyGag references to the G3 franchise]], with Toola Roola having the same cutie mark.

* [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E12FlutterBrutter Flutter Brutter]] had a [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link pony]] which got the attention of quite a few. Needless to say, video game fanatics were ecstatic at the amount of fanfic fuel this entails, especially if you draw Epona as an MLP pony.

* While the {{Retcon}} to [[DemonicPossession Nightmare Moons nature]] has been mixed, her latest incarnation, [[spoiler:Nightmare Rarity]], is easily the most popular thing to come out of the comics, impressive given she only appears halfway through her story and is a [[WalkingSpoiler huge spoiler]]. Helping is that she has a [[EvilIsCool cool]], [[EvilIsSexy attractive]] character design, [[LampshadeHanging is savvy enough to know it]] and [[WeakButSkilled remain a serious threat]] despite lacking her [[PhysicalGod previous incarnations power]], and some of the comics most epic and emotional moments came out of her confrontation.

* Starlight Glimmer started off as a Dark Horse when she was an antagonist in the premiere and finale of Season 5. Though since she became one of the good guys and started appearing more frequently in the series, she hasn't been as much of a dark horse but still very beloved to many fans.

Added DiffLines:

** Starting in Season 6, she started becoming popular as a friend to Starlight Glimmer, and admittingly, the duo does make a pretty hilarious team.


Added DiffLines:

** Ember is also a popular ship for Spike almost rivaling Rarity!


Added DiffLines:

* If you thought Nightmare Moon was hard core, the Season 7 episode, "A Royal Problem", introduced us to Princess Celestia's evil counterpart: Daybreaker! Needless to say, she has inspired many fan works as well.

* Soarin and Spitfire of the Wonderbolts managed to capture a lot of attention amongst the fanbase when their names and personalities were established in the Season 1 finale[[note]]They had {{Early Bird Cameo}}es before, but they were more or less costumed background ponies[[/note]]. Spitfire especially became somewhat of a pinup-girl to the fanart community with many a saucy [[WorldWarII WW2]]-style cheesecake image being drawn of her, as well as plenty of fanfics. Spitfire was brought back for another speaking role in Season 2 where she was established as the captain of the Wonderbolts, then again in a Season 3 episode that depicted her as being in charge of the training program for new recruits. Soarin got a cameo in the Royal Wedding where he was seen wearing a dress uniform and [[ShipTease dancing with Rainbow Dash]] and later played a more significant role in "Rainbow Falls"

* Applejack's parents, Bright Macintosh and Buttercup (nee Pear Butter/Buttercup AKA Applejack's ''parents''.

Butter). By the time of their debut, they had already been the subject of years' worth of speculation and {{fanon}}. After "The Perfect Pear", the general consensus is that they acquitted themselves ''magnificently''.
