* The background pony "Berry Punch" is treated this way within the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanbase. Fans first noticed her when she pulled her daughter into her house in one episode. This led to her becoming known as "Overprotective Pony Parent", or "[=OPPP=]" for short. Not too long afterwards fans noticed her Cutie Mark was a group of berries. It thus became {{fanon}} that her special talent was related to wine-brewing, which ultimately caused a lot of jokes about her being a drunkard. The concept of her being an alcoholic has become AscendedFanon but is [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar censored around sly jokes]]. Berry Punch is thus written by most fans as a (usually single) mother who drinks a lot. Her mothering skills tend to [[DependingOnTheWriter vary heavily from fan to fan]]. She can be anything from a responsible and overprotective mother who likes to drink to a barely coherent and [[ParentalNeglect neglectful]] mother who is always drunk.
