Go To

Ask Pinkamina Diane Pie was a Tumblr art blog based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic the character Pinkamena Diane "Pinkie" Pie. It was based on the infamous Dark Fic Cupcakes. It stars a Serial Killer named "Pinkamina". It is instantly recognizable by its all-pink art style.

The original blog has since been deleted. Ask Pinkamina Diane Pie is one of the most influential Ask a Pony blogs. It helped spur a surge of grimdark Pony blogs, such as Discorded Whooves. Even years after release, it still inspires.


Ask Pinkamina Diane Pie contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Villainy:
    • Pinkie went from a spunky Genki Girl to a stoic serial killer.
    • Scootaloo is a cute filly in the show but here she helps Pinkamina dispose of bodies, though she doesn't apparently kill anypony herself aside from her mother.
  • Anthropomorphic Shift: Pinkamina uses her hooves as hands and can stand up on her hindlegs easily. Ponies in the cartoon can too, but they rarely do.
  • Axe-Crazy: Pinkamena goes around killing and raping ponies. She even eats them.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: The original cartoon has no blood and minimal violence. This blog? Not so much.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: One of Pinkamina's hobbies.
  • Creepy Child: Scootaloo in spades.
  • Darker and Edgier: To the cartoon. It manages to be somewhat softer than Cupcakes though. At least Ask Pinkamina doesn't show the actual gore.

  • Depraved Bisexual: Pinkamina rapes her victims and is also into Scootaloo.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": For whatever reason, Pinkie has reverted back to her full name.
  • Enfant Terrible: Scootaloo is Pinkamina's assistant and is implied to also rape ponies.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Pinkamina has eaten ponies, made even more noticeable by the fact ponies in canon are all vegetarians (though they eat eggs so presumably they're omnivorous). She mentions that she likes smoked pegasus wings. Borders on Black Comedy Cannibalism.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Subverted as Pinkamina kills her ex-friend Fluttershy with ease, but shows no affections towards her. Pinkamina is also reluctant to kill her Only Friend Scootaloo.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Pinkamina.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Pinkie's name is spelled "Pinkamena" but here it's "Pinkamina".

  • Reality Ensues: Pinkamina tries to lick a blade but ends up just cutting herself.
  • Recursive Fanfiction: It is based on Cupcakes but takes several liberties to make it more in line with the episode "Party of One" (which came out after Cupcakes was written). For example, Pinkie Pie is depressed and has a straight mane, unlike in the fanfic where she's a fluffy maned Psychopathic Manchild.
  • Slasher Smile: Pinkamina is very prone to these.
  • Shout-Out: When Pinkamina cuts her tongue licking a knife, the gif parodies one from Homestuck.
  • The Shut-In: Pinkamina, and presumably Scootaloo, rarely leave their house.
  • Villain Protagonist: Pinakamina and Scootaloo.
