    Interpreting Cutie Marks

    (A note to the Reader: This system is a work in progress and will be updated as new information is established.) Within the Cannon of MLP, we see many myriad Cutie Marks on display and I've often wondered, 'how do they work?' What is to follow is my attempt to make sense of these enigmatic emblems emblazoned on the ends of our equine friends. Using this tool, you will be able to interpret any cutie mark and derive a deep and complex meaning and it is my hope that these meanings may be at least close to the cannon explanations for the marks. To this end, I ask you to assist me with new ideas or suggestions to help me flesh out this system and achieve a satisfactory level of accuracy. Definitions: In order to accurately describe the Cutie Marks and how to Interpret them, I will begin by defining my terms. Type: Cutie Marks can be divided into two broad categories that will determine how you go about interpreting the data you collect Glyphs: The Glyphs are the foundation for any cutie mark. Glyphs each have various meanings that can be attributed to them so the Circumstance and the Pony's personality should be considered when determining the meaning of a Glyph and consequently a Cutie Mark. What follows is an incomplete list of glyphs and their associated meanings. Abstract Glyphs: These Glyphs relate to concepts and ideas, not actions items or occupations. Many of these will also have Material meanings. Material Glyphs: Glyphs with clear meanings based on their form and relation to real world objects. Ornamentation/Embellishment: Some Cutie Marks will have additional patterning or special charactaristics that will help to modify the meaning of the Glyphs. Color Color plays an important role in establishing meaning in cutie marks. The coloration of glyphs, their relation to each other and the coat, mane and eye colors of the pony in question can have some significance. Color is only significant if it departs from the usual color of the Glyphs. for example, a Red apple has little additional significance, but a blue carrot might. Arrangement: To determine the meaning of the Literal type, you will consider it's Arrangement. The possible Arrangements are as follows Circumstance: The particular situation in which a Cutie Mark was earned can have significant info critical to determining the meaning of the Mark.
  2. Remember to watch with us live at the CMC Clubhouse on Equestria.tv 11:30 AM EST/8:30 AM PST Title: On Your Marks Air Date: April 9, 2016 Written by: Dave Polsky Synopsis: Now that they've finally received their cutie marks, the Cutie Mark Crusaders struggle with the question of what's next; the friends do not all agree on how to embrace their destinies. We Will Leave Our Mark by TheRandomJoyrider
  3. So I was watching The Supers Speedy Cider Squeezy 6,000 the other day and twards the end of Flim and Flam's song I noticed this screenshot I had to rewind and double check, but sure enough; the mare in the middle totally has Thor's hammer; Mjölnir as her cutie mark! How cool is that? Can anyone tell me her name? Or if she's appeared in other episodes?
  4. Cozy Glow's cutie mark is a chess piece and I think we would agree that it fits her strategic mind perfectly, but... does 'rook' represent Cozy Glow's talent/destiny better than other pieces? If not, which piece had you chosen to be her cutie mark? Let me know your thoughts about this, I will add my own later on. Edit: Personally, I would have chosen the pawn for her cutie mark. The rook is a big and powerful piece, with the ability to walk across the entire board when it has an open way, at the same time it has a narrowed vision which limits its peripheral sight. Now, let's look at the pawn... it is small, weak, with the need (talent?) to pursue it's goal one step at a time, but with the ambition to become a queen!
  5. So this was something that confused me about the series 4 finale. Tirek Om nom nom's everyone's magic, taking away their cutie mark too in the process, leaving them blank flanks. As of yet not one pony has had a different colored flank than the rest of their body, so it has to be part of the cutie mark. But if it's part of the cutie mark it should have disappeared with the moon part of the cutie mark. If for whatever reason she didn't give Twilight ALL her magic, than Tirek would have taken whatever was left and that part should have disappeared then. SOOOOO....which is it? Can someone explain this to me?
  6. Normal would I think the answer as something elementary-aged.As the colts and fillies look so young and child-like,with most of them getting a cutie mark on such a young age. However,once I found this on the mlp wiki,I started to doubt myself. "A "cute-ceañera" is celebrated by those who have recently gotten their cutie marks. The name of the celebration is a play on quinceañera, a celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America." (http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Cutie_marks) Which could actually make sense.Come to think of it,let's take a look at the fillies and colts.Seriously,what they do seems to exit what a real elementary-aged kids could.Like car-driving,making a car,etc.Also,not many people can learn their destiny within 12 years old,right?So could it be possible that our fillies and colts could be somewhat like,a young adolescence,middle-school aged? Now let's take a look at the mares and stallions.They may look like teens,but it seems that beside of fashion and mane-style tastes,teens and young adults sure don't share any differences.(We can see that in Call Of Cutie,Cheerlie don't much different in her teen years than recent.Tho the show didn't specify which stage of teen year was she in. The mane 6 may look teenish.But in fact,while Twilight being Celestia's student and in research,I could assume she's University-aged,or even on her stage to getting Master or PhD?Also the mane six all seems to have jobs,and it seems perfectly normal(Fluttershy's brother got blamed for not getting a job).It's obvious that the mane 6 aren't teens. It's is said that horses grow rapidly once they reach their puberty.Can we assume that ponies,also,are like so?Can we assume that the CMCs are actually teens,rather than children?And,thus,can we say that ponies usually get their cutie mark on teen ages?What do u think?
  7. Hello everypony! Amber here. I've been running an OC help thread for some time now, and I've noticed that a lot of people get stuck on the same thing--their OC's cutie mark. So, I decided to scrounge up all of my thoughts and advice and post it here for everyone to use. Here's what I've gathered, on the topic of Cutie marks. ~Meaning~ Most people will tell you that a Cutie Mark is supposed to represent a pony's special talent, but really, it can mean a lot of different things. The mane six are a good example of that! Cutie Marks are meant to represent anything that makes a pony stand out from the rest. Here are a few ideas for you. A Natural Talent A talent is anything that someone is naturally good at. In the case of the Mane Six, Rainbow Dash best represents a pony who's Cutie Mark is all about talent, which she unlocked saving Fluttershy with the Sonic Rainboom. A case could also be made for AJ and Twilight's marks. A Passion Pinkie Pie's cutie mark appeared when she discovered her passion for party planning and making people smile. Sure, she's honed her skill over time, but this cutie mark appeared on her very first party, when she didn't really have any skill or talent for it. Destiny Yes, Twilight Sparkle's cutie mark was, in fact, a premonition. Really! Sure, she's a very powerful magic user, but what her cutie mark really represents is her position as the Element of Magic--and the Princess of Friendship. AppleJack's cutie mark may also be related to her Destiny, as she got it when she returned back home. A Special Ability Aah, Rarity. So many people (including whoever made "What my Cutie mark is Telling Me") forget that her Cutie mark has nothing to do with sewing or fashion or anything like that--it represents the spell she spontaneously discovered. A specialized freebie that allowed her to find gems. This Cutie mark isn't directly related to her talents, but it sure does help. Fluttershy's Cutie mark is also related to a Special Ability--her ability to speak to animals. A Skill The difference between a skill and a talent is that talents come naturally, whereas skills must be developed and honed over time. I place the CMC in this category because they spent almost the entire series obsessing over cutie marks, and throughout season 5, they began honing their skills in helping others with their cutie marks. (Trouble Shoes, Diamond Tiara, etc.) A personality aspect Something about a character's personality that makes them special. This could be their astounding kindness, their wild imagination, their will of steel, their social prowess, or anything in between! In Amber's case, it's her resonating hope, although hers could also be considered a skill, as she's honed it and used it to accomplish goals. ~Design~ A Cutie mark's design is very important. Not only must it match the meaning, but it also has to blend well with the pony's colour scheme and has to be simple enough to distinguish when drawn on a rather small space. Common designs include Bunches of three (Rarity, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy) or one larger mark. A cutie mark can be portrayed in one of two ways: Near Literal: Rarity's cutie mark is a good example of a literal design--she has the ability to find gems, so her mark is...gems. Simple enough. The same goes for AJ, who specializes in working with apples. Symbolic: Marks that aren't quite literal, but are pretty easy to guess at. Pinkie Pie and Twilight have symbolic cutie marks. Balloons=parties=party planner, and Star=Magic=Element of Magic (=Princess of Friendship/Harmony). Abstract: Cheerilee's Cutie mark is a good example of an abstract mark--you really need to have it explained to you in order to understand it. This type of design is often used for Cutie Marks that are hard to translate into simple drawings, and require the use of slightly more complex metaphors and symbols. My main OC has this type of mark, but the symbology is a bit obscure because it's symbolism is personal to her rather than widely accepted. Other symbolic cutie marks would be the CMC's, and Rainbow Dash's. ~Keeping it canon~ In the world of MLP, there are some restrictions regarding what your character can have as their "Special Talent"...Make sure that your OC's mark is within the possibilities of the show. Here are some helpful tips that you should consider, Pony Race: A pony's race (Unicorn, Pegasus, Earth Pony) should be considered when deciding on your cutie mark. If you want your pony's special talent to be water-bending or some other form of magic, you'd better make sure they're a unicorn. If you want it to be gardening, they'll need to be an Earth Pony. If you want them to be skilled flyers, well...you get the idea. There has never been a pony in canon who's mark contradicts their species' ability. Context: In a world filled with magic and love and friendship, it's very unlikely that your OC will get a mark for inventing the nuclear bomb or assassinating the royals of a faraway land. Equestria is not a place where characters like mercenaries, assassins, or ghost-hunters would thrive. Power: It's important not to use a Cutie Mark as an excuse to overpower your character. Your character's Cutie mark should never grant Alicorn levels of power--that's just not how it works...especially when you consider that ponies get their marks when they're still rather young. Rarity's Cutie Mark Power is a simple spell that a grown unicorn with a bit of talent could easily imitate. The only difference is that Rarity got hers without needing practice. Age: Cutie Marks are pony puberty. A full-grown blank flank isn't something you'd see in canon, so it isn't something you should do for your OC. A foal born with a cutie mark is even stranger. If your reasoning for making your OC a blank-flank is because you couldn't come up with anything else, don't worry! Just keep working at it and thinking and an idea will eventually come to you. ~Story~ The last step--figuring out how your character actually earned their mark. The Mane Six had a variety of different stories for us to learn from! Just like that: Both Unicorns in the mane six got their Cutie marks via magic outbursts. Rarity's was entirely random, and Twilight's happened when she was straining her magic. This works best with Unicorns whose Cutie marks are related to a specialized spell or ability. Epiphany: Pinkie Pie and AJ both got their cutie marks when they made life-changing personal realizations. Pinkie discovered her love for making ponies smile, and AJ realized that she belonged at home with her family. This kind is my personal favourite, because it shows personal, emotional growth. First Try: Fluttershy got her Mark when she discovered animals for the first time, and found out she had an affinity for speaking with them. Easy-peasy. Overlimit: Rainbow dash got her Cutie mark when she was put in a situation that really tested her limits of flying, and she proved herself capable. Twilight's mark was also a result of pushing her limits. My OC, Amber Dust, got her mark like this, too, although her situation was emotionally intense rather than physically intense. Mastering: Consider it a level-up...this type of story works best with skill-based marks, and would be achieved when a pony finally becomes really good at something. The CMC usually try and get this. ^^' ~FAQ~ These are some of the more common obstacles I've seen people face, and how to surmount them. My OC has more than one talent! Yeah, a lot of people have this problem--their OC is a jack of all trades. Well, remember, Cutie Marks aren't always about talents. It's about what makes your OC stand out from he rest. If you just can't pick what their best talent is, than pick whichever one they like the most, whichever one they're most proud of, or whatever one they're best known for. But really, your character shouldn't be too talented. Make sure they aren't boredering Suedom. My OC is based off of me! Ponysonae are also hard to tag Marks onto--usually because the people who make these OCs aren't sure what they're going to do with their lives--but fear not. Even though this character is based off of you, remember that they grew up in Equestria, and had access to different things than you did. You'll find that it's easier to think up a cutie mark when you think of your Ponysona as a "player character" rather than a carbon copy of yourself. Also, remember...cutie marks do NOT NECESSARILY REPRESENT A TALENT. Tired of hearing that yet? Is my cutie mark too common? So, maybe your OC has a talent for art or music. Yeah, these are pretty common, but you can still keep your cutie mark your own by customizing the way it looks. Instead of going with a plain music note or pencil or something, why not use something a little more personal? An image of your first masterpiece? Your first obstacle? Your instrument of choice? The possibilities are endless, especially if you choose to go Symbolic. But I want my OC to be conflicted about their destiny! Why can't my adult pony be a blank flank? If a conflicted mindset is what your after, then consider giving them an abstract cutie mark. Both Diamond Tiara and Trouble Shoes were confused with regards to their destinies, but still had cutie marks. In fact, I think having a confusing cutie mark might even have more potential for story than not having one at all! Just try it! ~And last of all, remember this all-important fact...~ A cutie mark won't change you, no matter what you get.
  8. When the Mane 6 got turned into sea ponies why is Rarity the only one with her cutie mark not only on her dorsal fin but also on her tail fin?
  9. If you guys want me to write something with this I will. I love writing and would love to flesh out backstory but not if its going to be a waste. Anyway the day I got my cutie mark! It uh...wasn't a benevolent occasion to say the least and now I have to deal with this Hellspawn of a demon the rest of my life. Elusive Shadows now in her first real appearance near my being. I may have tried dark shadow magic and the result was a mosh pit of, "Yay!" and "Oh no what have I done?!"

    Cutie Mark Game

    What would be your Cutie Mark? Give a small description of yourself, or make one up. And then the person after you gives a Cutie Mark that fits your “style.” I made a big explosion in chemistry and got my cutie mark. But what does it look like?
  11. I finally decided to make this post. If any of ponies need name or cutie mark suggestions for your OCs, feel free to ask me and I will try my best to help you out.

    cutie mark The Symbolism of Cutie Marks

    Arguably the most important part of a Cutie Mark is the Glyph, here meant to refer to the image depicted. It is from this that we gain the most significant indication of a pony's talent. That said, there is a fair amount of interpretation involved in reading Cutie marks. For example, Cheerilee's Cutie Mark, a Triune of Smiling Daisies is meant to represent her skill and passion for teaching. She described the mark in the episode "Call of the Cutie" What this tells us is that apart from the pure symbolism inherent in the Cutie Mark, a pony's personal understanding of it can play a significant role as well. This presents us with a bit of a Dilema. Using the system that I have devised would not give us the best understanding of a mark like Cheerilee's. The question then is this; How do we handle the subjective meanings of Cutie Marks? One possibility would be to simply disregard this aspect of Cutie Mark Interpretation as it makes the entire exercise a foregone conclusion if you already have an idea of what a Cutie Mark means. In it's capacity as a tool for character creation, this would be a perfectly tenable solution, but in it's secondary purpose of reading meaning from existing marks, this falls short. I recognize that it would be impossible to systematically derive the subjective meaning from a mark so I'm still left with the question of how to do it. As always, your input is welcome and encouraged.

    Deconstructing Cutie Marks

    Cutie Marks are an important aspect of the show. They serve as a shorthand to help us immediately understand core aspects of a pony's personality or role, even if they are not given a speaking part in the story. They are often the most recognizable part of a character, to such an extent that when we see a familiar mark on an unfamiliar pony, we tend to take notice. Obviously this is a failing of the medium and not meant to be taken as significant but as a nerd and a Brony, I take it upon myself to be overly analytical of my perky pastel ponies and their society. While it's clear that very little thought was put into the overarching principals of Cutie Mark design by Lauren when she was Show Runner, I expect that some system can be established that can give a general overview of a pony simply by interpreting their cutie mark. I've been met with limited success in this venture so far in my post here but I feel like I'm missing some key aspects. So far, I have accounted for some basic elements of the Cutie Mark, namely the symbols and their position relative to one another but there is more I could use here. ultimately, I want to distribute this system to the four corners of the internet so that content creators can use it to create deep and complex characters with consistency, and to help stem the tides of the dreaded Mary Sues that plague our fan fiction. I intended to begin establishing meanings for Layouts, Color choice and contrast, Imagery and the circumstance in which the mark was earned. All of these things will help creators to home in on their Pony's personality. That said, I can't just make these things up willy nilly and expect them to work. I'll need to set up a database of cutie marks, both cannon an original to create datapoints which I can account for. Obviously some things will simply defy my attempts but I'm still game to try. I hope to conclude this project with an intuitive system that anyone can use. For your perusal, I offer an example of the kinds of things that this system could reveal about a character. I give you Shining Armor! His Cutie Mark is a Dark Blue Heraldic shield with a pink Six-Pointed Star nested inside. This star is Echoed from his sister, Twilight Sparkle. Above the Shield is a Triune of powder blue Five-Pointed Stars which are inherited from his mother, Twilight Velvet. A Shield is a clear indicator of protection and with the Six Pointed star Nested inside, this meaning is reinforced. The six-pointed star has a double meaning in this case as it is simultaneously a strong indicator of Magical talent and Mirrored by his younger sister which indicates her as very important to his talent in some way. The Triune of Five-Pointed stars would normally indicate some interest in astronomy, in this case, since they are Inherited from his mother, their Triune arrangement reinforces a strong affection for her. Taken as a whole, Shining armor appears to be a pony with a strong talent in magical protection who is very protective of his sister and loves his mother dearly. This system is still a work in progress and I hope to have more information to add to it soon! I'll keep you posted!
  15. Hello every-pony! My name is Stella Star and I joined MLP forums in 2016 and thrived on these forums for a solid 1-2 months until I stopped and abandoned this website. I am now back and better than ever, however... Since my return i've noticed an update on the profile design and i'm struggling to remember basic navigation around the forums. So here is what I can't exactly wrap my head around: How does the Rank system work? I am currently sitting on the peewee rank of the Muffin and I want to know how I can advance further but I can't for the life of me figure out how to view my progress and all other basic information on this system. If anyone could give me the rundown about how the Ranks work that would be extremely helpful! Thanks ponies!

    Inaugural complaint!

    So, I just put Abedias into the Character page and after a lengthy writing session to get it all out I post it only to find the formatting is completely borked! Any idea what's up with that? Am I just missing something Here? Anyway, on to another subject! I'm currently working on a bit of a project. If you've had any interactions with me it is more than likely that you already know about it but for those that don't, I'm trying to set up a systematic method for interpreting cutie marks that will produce interesting and deep characters based on a cutie mark image. Basically, put cutie mark in, get Awesome OC out! To that end, I would like any help you guys are willing to offer! Ideas, critiques or suggestions are welcome and I always enjoy trying my system out on new Cutie Marks to see how they match the OC you've already got So, anyone willing to help out or give it a try, I've got a post set up in Sugarcube Corner, or you can just PM me! That's all I have for now~
  17. Hi! Any ideas for a cutie mark and/or name? Here's a basic overview of my pony: She has an interior designer job, her hobby is singing, and is kind, but gets easily angered when some thing doesn't go her way.

    Luna's Cutie Mark

    Is that black butt patch apart of Luna's cutie mark or not? First, just the moon disappears. Then, in A Royal Problem, the butt patch goes along with the moon.
  19. Basically I was just wondering this because there are a couple of adult ponies I've noticed which don't have cutie marks :/ what you guys think? also on that note do you think the CMC will ever get their cutie marks in the show ?
  20. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but search came up with nothing for Starlight Cutie Mark when searching. So I'd like to start a discussion with you all. What is the meaning of Starlight's Cutie Mark? What's her talent? A Cutie Mark is earned when a pony discovers their special talent, the thing they're good at and do the best. It's not necessarily the only thing they will ever do with their life, nor are they going to be the best in the world at that thing, but it's the thing they're supposed to be the best at doing when such things come up. Starlight originally had issues with Cutie Marks, trying to hide hers and remove those of others to create a utopia. She tried to destroy the lives of the Manes and their Cutie Marks. She has switched the Alicorn sisters Cutie Marks to teach them a good lesson. It seems she's all up in everyone's behinds while also being Op at magic and then later not being able to lift a simple suitcase. But with the latter I digress. So what is our favorite reformed villain pony and basically Mane 8's special talent? What is she good at? What does the lavender and blueish swirling thing actually mean? IIRC this has never been brought up or mentioned in the show, so I thought I would make this thread to discuss. I feel she might just be good at magic in general like Twilight, but is that really possible? What do you guys think?
  21. So if you were to have a cutie mark what would it be? Mine would be a slice of chocolate cake.
  22. Ok, so we saw a six-starred version of Twilight's cutie mark when she became an alicorn in Magical Mystery Cure, right? Well, personally I took it for an animation error, until it showed up again in the Season 4 sketches that were shown at Comic-Con, and instantly I assumed it was no mere coincidence. Then, along came the Tree of Harmony, and after doing some several weeks of thinking, I may have pieced something together. What if the six stars on Twi's new cutie mark represent Twi and her friends, with the big star in the middle being Harmony itself? That would effectively not make Twilight the mortal spirit of the Tree of Harmony, but rather its guardian, protector and ambassador of harmony, along with the Mane 5. It would make sense, considering Twilight has learned much about magic and friendship, and having used the Elements of Harmony along with her friends, the tree saw fit to make the Mane 6 its guardians. What do you think about this?
  23. I've always wondered - Do ponies have a cutie mark on both sides of their flank? If not, which side holds the cutie mark? I noticed that in The Cutie Map part 2 when Starlight's fake cutie mark is washed off, we can see a shot where she has a cutie mark on both sides. This still doesn't provide solid evidence for me because she drew it on. We always see that when a new pony gets their cutie mark, it appears on the side of their flank, but it isn't really clear if it is on both sides. Anybody have some insight or have any evidence pertaining to this topic? Or am I just missing something?
  24. This was hard, but I made a lot of improvements to my OC, Neon Tetherlight, and I'm pretty proud of 'em, BUT, I have no idea for a cutie mark. I mean, I do have some ideas but... I'll need help. I'm just not that good at getting that 'perfect design' I was thinking of... I would be grateful if you could gather up some ideas for a cutie mark. Anything would be fine. I'll also give a small description about him- He is an ambiverted unicorn that works for a prestigious software and hardware company called ManeFrame. (Pun intended, and you could also help me with that. :P) His dream is to spread the knowledge of technology to each and every corner of Equestria. He mainly works in the secret wing of his company that is developing a machine that uses magic to power an A.I called . And, there has been some amount of progress, the only problem is that the magic that they are currently using isn't strong enough to keep the A.I conscious for long. Enough about his job. Let's get into his head. Neo is a Stallion of few words, and only speaks when beneficiary, but when he is around his friends, he is like a high school Filly, talking about other pony's secrets that he has no business knowing. He likes being around his friends, but doesn't make it obvious. His relationship with his sister though, is a whole other story. He and she used to get along well, but their different views on the world separated them and made them go their own ways, But that doesn't mean he doesn't like spending some sibling time together. He also has a tendency to get into fighs even if they could be easily avoided. No one knows how he does that though.. Now fears... He is scared of the ocean. Like the deep blue part of it, and he's afraid that the waves will drag him into it. (Even though it's not exactly possible with him.) He is vulnerable to jump scares and anything that looks a bit too scary. He has stage freight but if he's performing something in front of his friends, he's fine with it. And now for talents! Uhh... He is exceptionally good at programming and can work with any kind of basic motor. He is pretty good at gaming and had won in a lot of competitions as a colt. He is kinda like a 'Jack of all spades' with sports. Not excellent in anything, or too bad at something. And cooking is out of his league keep that in mind. (*cough*) I will add a bit more of his bio after I've gotten an idea of his cutie mark. Remember, whatever I've written here is rough and I will make improvements. And thanks in advance! Image014.tif
  25. How did your oc gain their cutie mark? Or do they not have one yet? Why so? My character, Dawn Horizon, got his cutie mark after passing his exam to be a wonderbolt academy student! Becoming the first bat pomy in pony history to become a part of the wonderbolts!
