Ages of the Mane Six?
Posted 03 October 2011 - 04:34 PM
Personally, I think they're all in their early 20's
Discuss how old you think they are and why...

I'm not sure about their age, but all we know is that Fluttershy is a year older than Pinkie!
Also, I would tend to think that Rarity is the oldest and that Rainbow is the youngest.
edit: yeah, that order that Gummy posted seems just about right

From youngest to oldest,I would rank them as such:
Pinkie Pie (immature, lives in apartment, has parental figures)
Twilight Sparkle (still in college, hasn't quite developed social skills yet)
Rainbow Dash (has wild and fairly unrealistic hopes for the future)
Fluttershy (has a stable job and knows how to be polite in formal circumstances)
Applejack (runs a family business almost independently, is trusted by the town and society)
Rarity (completely independent, acts as a parental figure)

I think Rarity> Fluttershy > Twilight > Pinkie Pie > Apple Jack > Rainbow dash. At least thats the order I believe. Now I cant say exact ages but I would put rarity somewhere between 22-24, if that gives any kind of base.
That's exactly the age order I imagine them to be. Rarity and Fluttershy just "feel" like the eldest. I would think of Pinkie as a little younger than Applejack except for Fluttershy's line about being (only) a year older than Pinkie.

Mainly because Pinkie is the only one who seems to live with anyone (Mr. and Mrs. Cake). I don't know about everyone else, but it seemed to me in "The Cute Mark Chronicles", that Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy were in the same class, though I see that Fluttershy actually looks older than the others. It might just be an early growth-spurt, though, otherwise she'd be older than the rest of the mane cast, since they all have the same height, even as fillies. I dunno. Just my thoughts.

But the idea that Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash are close to the same age also says something else. If Pinkie Pie is a year younger than Fluttershy that would also probably make her younger than Rainbow Dash. So maybe idea of Pinkie being the youngest are pretty accurate.

- Pinkie Pie (17-19)
- Rainbow Dash (18-19)
- Twilight Sparkle (19-21)
- Fluttershy (21-22)
- Applejack (23)
- Rarity (24)

That said, I think it's something like Rarity > Fluttershy > Pinkie Pie > Applejack > Rainbow Dash > Twilight Sparkle
Rarity and Fluttershy are fairly obvious and it seems most of us are agreed on their placement, so I'll leave those alone.
Pinkie Pie's family, as shown in Cutie Mark Chronicles, is based off of the Amish. I've heard Amish girls are capable of leaving their families when they turn 16, so I'll assume Pinkie is either 16 or 17 (making Fluttershy either 17 or 18).
I was iffy with AJ and RD, but AJ seems to the more mature of the two, so I'd go with her being older. She's probably not too much younger than Pinkie, perhaps the same age, maybe even older. For now, I think she's younger though. Just because Pinkie acts goofy doesn't necessarily mean she's young. I've seen plenty of girls similar to Pinkie. The social, outgoing types are generally that way.
Twilight is at the bottom because, despite all her intelligence, she's very innocent. Best example would be Boast Busters. She's so afraid of looking like a showoff that she decides not to do anything. Generally that's how younger people think before they do something.
