For whatever reason, there is a party. Whilst a party is normally going to be a fairly festive affair in its own right, sometimes it just needs spicing up - this is where LifeOfTheParty comes into play.

* Pinkie Pie from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' will try to be this if it's not a party she set up. If it is one she made, she will try to make it as lively as possible. She even has a party cannon - a cannon that shoots out ready made party supplies.
** Even if, at times, she does things that could kill the party for others who are trying to enjoy themselves - such as making a band play unfitting music for the event, ravenously devouring all the sweets and snacks set out for everyone and leaving nothing for anyone else to eat (going so far as to stuff her face with a plate of cupcakes PRINCESS CELESTIA HERSELF was about to eat right in front of her) and doing things that, while usually funny to watch happen to someone else, would drive you absolutely up a wall or make you incredibly upset if you were there yourself.
** FridgeBrilliance here. Growing up, all of Pinkie's 'friends' were inanimate objects. So she has never learned how to act appropriately in various social situations. Her first exposure to a social gathering was a fun filled party that made every pony there happy, so that is what she always uses.
