As the 100th MLP episode is just around the corner, I've decided to make my Top 5 Favorite Background Ponies list. But Photon? Why top 5 instead of top 10? Well, to be honest, I did not want to think too hard so I kept the list plain and simple.
One thing I need to mention though is that this list may contain spoiler so you've been warned.
Without further ado, let the list begin!
#5 - Octavia
First up on the list is Octavia. Oh Octavia...it's such a shame that she didn't get enough role time nowadays. Still, there's no denying she became a fan favorite. I do like Octavia because she's the only bass guitar player I know that plays in style. It's like she's calmly focused on playing her music while acting posh. I dunno but there's something about her that made us adore her. Maybe we can find out in the 100th episode? I'm sure of it. Looking forward to what role she would play. I think I know, do you?
#4 - Bulk Biceps
YEAH! Bulk Biceps in my opinion is a funny character and to our surprise, looks different than the others. There should be more be more ponies that have different body appearances in Equestria. Good thing we got to see more of him later on since we enjoyed his appearance. Wouldn't it be awesome when Bulk Biceps crashes through a wall shouting "YEAH!" out of thin air just like what the Kool-Aid Man does? Oh wait, I think he already did that.
#3 - Doctor Whooves
Ah yes, Doctor Whooves. Who else saw this pony and immediately thought of Doctor Who? Or...is it Time Turner? Oh, whatever.
Even though I did not see much on what he does (except turning an hourglass over), I put him on number 3 for a reason. The reason is there are many fan made stuff of Doctor Whooves and all those great projects got my attention about this character. Heck, I even got some Doctor Whooves stuff. It's quite amazing how a reference can really work in the world of MLP. It's like the Doctor regenerated into a pony. I might see that happening which of course I don't think so.
All in all, Doctor Whooves is great and we'll see what he'll do in the upcoming episode. Onwards and upwards Doctor. Onwards and upwards.
#2 - Derpy Hooves
Wuzzat!? Derpy is number 2 on the list!? Let's not get the pitchforks and torches out because I have an explanation on why Derpy is not number 1 on the list. Don't get me wrong. I love Derpy to bits but she was close to being my number 1.
For me, her main role is to be hidden in certain MLP episodes just like Wally from...well, Where's Wally. Oh, don't worry about those episode that show her in the spotlight because I remember.
In fact, I even remember posting a reaction video about that scene when she actually SPOKE!
We bronies wanted to know what she sounded like and we found out. Ahh...good times. It was such a shame that she got the pinch after that. It's unfair that she got censored when there are other lunatics in cartoons. So why she did get the punishment. I have no idea but that all changed when she struck back like greased lightning in Season 4!
I was gonna put her in the number 1 spot but there's this other pony who took a shine to me. Sorry Derpy but you're still awesome and adorable.
So, who is number 1 on my list? I'll tell you. My personal favorite background pony iiiiiis...

#1 - DJ Pon-3
Aww yeah! DJ Pon-3's in da house! This background character is just too cool and stylish for all us bronies. At first, I only saw her once in the first season and that's about it. However, as time went on, she became one of the background character all stars! Why? Because there were many fan made stuff that feature her and she even got herself an Equestria Girls short AND actually helped the Mane Six in Rainbow Rocks! No kidding. That's what I call a great background character. When I saw that video and the Rainbow Rocks movie, that showed my supreme love for her. She doesn't even need words to describe what she is. She's...oooh! I can't think of anything else to say!
Oh, sorry for being carried away there but she's just awesome. A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Awesome. Totally can't wait to see her again and I bet many other DJ Pon-3 fans agree with me. Especially Nowacking.
So, there you have it! That's my top 5 favorite background ponies! Which background pony is your favorite out of the lot? I'm sure we have plenty of things to discuss before the episode arrives.
Until then, stay pony my friends. I've got some music to listen to!
