  • In My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
    • The Pie sisters: Limestone is the neurotic task-master of the family, and easily fits into Choleric. Pinkie, as the super-extroverted, knower-of-all-ponies and Equestria's best party-thrower, fits comfortably into Sanguine. Shy and quiet Marble Pie, who rarely interacts with the others and just sets her mind to her tasks is Melancholic, and Maud's deadpan mannerisms and her interactions with the others establish her as Phlegmatic.
    • The Princesses: Celestia normally keeps her emotions to herself and is focused on running the country (though she occasionally lets the mask slip around Twilight), and fits as Choleric. Cadance, the pony who exemplifies the love of her own subjects and got on best with the Mane 6, even having plenty of fun helping prepare her own wedding with them, is Sanguine. Luna, desperately trying to fit in, do her duty as Princess of the Night, and trying to keep her own emotions bottled up is Melancholic. Finally, Twilight is the Princess of Friendship, even though her usual hobbies would involve a night alone with a book, and so is Phlegmatic. They fit in less rigidly than the above example by nature of being Princesses with a well-rounde set of traits each, but their most dominant traits align them to the indicated temperaments.

The Pie sisters melancholic and phlegmatic are wrong but maybe they are just back words. I haven't seen that episode. Choleric is more aggressive than Celestia so I don't think that fits.

There is a lot of misuse on the page. If you're sure that the character doesn't fit then please remove the example with an edit reason.

Can someone PLEASE explain to me why Kyle from South Park is phlegmatic? Some of the traits for phlegmatic are calm, quiet, mysterious, forgiving, pleasant, empathetic, yet indifferent, submissive, slow, and a slacker. From what I've seen from South Park, Kyle fits none of that criteria, especially the parts about being calm, forgiving, and indifferent, or being a slacker. Most phlegmatics do not have a Hair Trigger Temper.
