  1. Greetings, Ponies of the MLP Forums! This is a topic in which, you are allowed to ask questions to me and any of my five amazing friends. Sup? Hello, Darlings. Howdy! Hiya! Um...Hello? I show up, too sometimes. "The Great and Powerful" Trixie has decided to grace this thread with her presence as well. Before we begin, I would like to thank our friends @Totally Lyra & Lyra Heartstrings for giving us this idea. Rules: Please keep your questions clean/No cussing. No shipping questions.
  2. After Shadow Play and the movie (and, technically, School Daze) had the Mane 6 save the day, I thought things went back to normal. But with School Raze having the underdogs saving the day again, I wonder if the Mane 6 aren't allowed to save the day anymore.
  3. Rank the Mane 6 in terms of how much they mean to the group and how much would change if they left. Here's mine: 1.) Applejack. 2.) Rainbow Dash. 3.) Twilight Sparkle. 4.) Pinkie Pie. 5.) Rarity. 6.) Fluttershy. If someone asks me to explain mine, I will.
  4. Pretty self explanatory, rank the Mane Six separately for how much attention the get from the show (i.e. biggest role in the series, movie, EQG, and any other canon content) and how much attention they get from the fandom (i.e. "best pony", fan projects, etc.) Here's mine, from most attention to least: Show 1.) Twilight Sparkle. Even if FiM doesn't really have a main character, since the episodes arguably focus on a wide range of characters, if you were asked who the main character was, you'd probably say Twilight Sparkle. this is evident across the series, comics and books. (Yes, I'm including those). She takes on the leader role, and has been one of the primary focuses in the first EQG girls movie, the MLP Movie, Twilight's Kingdom, Princess Twilight Sparkle, The Return of Harmony, A Canterlot Wedding, The Crystal Empire, The Cutie Re-Mark, Shadow Play, School Daze, several of the IDW comic lines, and numerous stand alone FiM episodes. To say she isn't the most focused on in canon content would be weird but I'd hear you out. 2.) Pinkie Pie. Is it just me, or is Pinkie taking on much more than a comic relief role now? Sure, she fell short in Season 8, but she had a lot of focus in Season 7, so I think that was necessary. Not only that, but just look at her role in the MLP Movie. A stronger role for Pinkie is definitely developing. 3.) Rainbow Dash. Not only did Rainbow garner a lot of attention in Season 8, but she's always been crucial to the show, ever since her Sonic Rainboom. The show, although sometimes showing her ego to the extreme, clearly shows respect towards her, considering everything she's done that is of importance. 4.) Rarity. Ah, here we are at the bottom three. Rarity is a character that sometimes gets a lot of attention, sometimes falls short, and sometimes just fills Pinkie's roll as the comedic support, as seen in the MLP Movie. With Rarity being such a mixed bag, it easily landed her here, as she isn't as brushed aside as the bottom two. 5.) Applejack. One year ago, Applejack would've ranked at the bottom of my list, however EQG changed my perspective on that. Not only was Applejack prominent in "RoF" but she also was giving a good load of attention in "LoE", as well as having two solos in the shorts. This wasn't all that landed her here, as she is steadily progressing in the show, too, but the roots of her character land her here. 6.) Fluttershy. Unlike Applejack, Flutters is steadily regressing in the attention the show, as well as EQG, is giving her. What is to blame for this? I'd say that it was Flutters arc to make her more sure of herself. Now, I guess the show doesn't see much to do with her, as she is melting into another Applejack. Now, her former shell of personality is only played for laughs. Fandom I'm not explaining this one, as it's pretty self explanatory if you've hung around this fandom for even a week, and I believe the show's attention rankings were more important. 1.) Rainbow Dash/Fluttershy. 2.) Rarity. 3.) Twilight Sparkle. 4.) Applejack.
  5. Here's mine in order of 1 being "loves their pet the most" and 6 being the opposite. 6.) Twilight Sparkle. Twilight sees Owlowiscious as an assistant, not really as a pet. Although her love for him is clearly there, I'm pretty sure she loves Spike more. 5.) Rarity. Again, her love for Opal is there, but man are there instances where she treats this cat horribly, mainly prominent in "Sweet and Elite". 4.) Applejack. Applejack loves Winona, of course, just not to the extent of the next top 3. 3.) Fluttershy. Fluttershy owns a LOT of pets, but "Angel" is the one we see her with the most. Fluttershy would do anything this devious little rabbit said in the earlier seasons, but now she's developed into a healthier, if not blander, character. 2.) Pinkie Pie. I try (and fail) to look at Pinkie and Gummy's relationship and not say "Awww...." because they are so cute!!!!! Pinkie's gonna Pinkie, and no where is the craziest of her shown except when she's with Gummy. I think the key episode of their relationship is "Party of One" where she almost forgets her own birthday but remember's Gummy's. Sure, a bit weird for the party extraordinaire, but nevertheless adorable. 1.) Rainbow Dash. What originally was annoyance for this tortoise soon turned into unconditional love. I'm pretty sure you all know the episode that puts Rainbow in this slot. Vice versa: 6.) Angel. He constantly abuses and takes advantage of Fluttershy, and while that has now cooled down, his previous treatment of Fluttershy has still not completely vanished. I'm sure there's SOME love he has for Fluttershy, but this bunny falls short when compared to the rest. 5.) Opal. Opal meets Rarity's actions with usual annoyance, as seen again in "Sweet and Elite". She does show love to Rarity, of course, but I think their personalities match all too well. 4.) Gummy. I'm pretty sure Gummy loves Pinkie Pie... but then again, I'm only pretty sure. 3.) Winona. Winona's a typical, happy lil' dog who loves Applejack jut how a normal dog would treat their owner. I can't fault her for this, but Winona certainly falls flat when compared to our final two. 2.) Owlowiscious. Owlowiscous is practically a second Spike, except more wise and definitely more lucky. Owlowiscous loves Twilight, too bad that love isn't often showcased in episodes now. 1.) Tank. Tank not only saved Rainbow when she was stuck, but also often just looks happy and at ease with her. Also, this: I've died of cuteness. Please help.
  6. Have you ever wanted your OC in a game? Well, I'm making a RPG maker game that needs background ponies. The OCs will be in towns I made up and will have dialogue, sprites, etc. The sprites of the OCs will be made by me, and the story plot will also be made be me. You will play the Mane 6 as they journey around a new world, going through the OC towns and communities. Naturally, I'll need a ton of OCs. You will be credited for your character and the game will be entirely free. Game updates and the finished project will be posted here. Please keep in mind this is my first game. If you want your OC in the game, you'll have to reply to this with the following: 1. A reference picture or detailed description of the character 2. A good bio of the character 3. The name you'd like me to use in the credits YOU MAY SUMBIT MORE THAN ONE CHARACTER! Please submit your characters! Thank you for reading!
  7. I've always wondered - what do you guys think the Mane 6 and CMC would look like as actual humans - no multicoloured hair, eyes, skin tones (basically human skin tones, hair colors, eye colors). By the way, please don't call anypony out for being racist just because they imagine the Mane 6 and CMC all white, that's not nice . Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle - I always imagined Twilight as either Hispanic or African- American, with thick, dark brown hair that goes halfway down her back, and dark brown eyes. Also, she would have glasses >3< Rarity - Asian, probably Korean, with waist-length black hair and dark dark brown, almost black, eyes. I don't think its possible to have black hair and blue eyes naturally. Fluttershy - Japanese- American, long light brown hair (almost blonde, but not quite), with gentle green eyes with a faint blue tint. My cousin has a friend that's Japanese, and she's very gentle and shy with others. Rainbow Dash - I always imagined her as the one that Rarity would get jealous at for her looks. For her, I imagine her as a white (don't get mad at me), with thick, platinum blonde hair, slightly below waist length (No, I'm not going to imagine her with short hair ) and large, pale blue eyes framed with jet black eyelashes. It's easier to dye blonde hair anyways, so she can easily dye it rainbow Pinkie Pie - I can't imagine a good race for her, probably either caucasian or white, with super duper curly red hair and blue eyes. Red is similar to pink, and blue is her eye color in the show Applejack - Pretty obvious, but, whatever, white with long yellow- blonde hair, green eyes, and tanned skin, since she works out in the sun frequently, CMC: Apple Bloom - white, long, straight red hair, amber eyes. #nailedit Sweetie Belle - white (I just can't imagine Sweetie Belle as an Asian, sorry Rarity ), long, curly, strawberry blonde hair, pale green eyes. The Chicken Scootaloo - white (damn I have a good chance on being called for for being racist), shoulder length red hair, and.... green eyes? I don't know. Comment down below what you would think they would have as their eye color, hair color, and race as humans! Adios!

    Spoiler The Student 6's elements

    When the Tree of Harmony saved the Student 6 a student said "their glowing like the elements" that is incorrect they were glowing like the Mane 6 like the rainbow vision from season 4 were not the colors of a rainbow but the Mane 6's colors. Twilight is purple, Pinkie is pink, Rainbow dash is blue, Applejack is orange, Fluttershy is yellow, and Rarity is white. They weren't glowing the colors of the elements but the element bearers. Gallus was purple=Magic Silverstream was pink=Laughter Smolder was blue=Loyalty Yona was orange=Honesty Sandbar was yellow=Kindness Ocellus was white=Generosity
  9. What would the Mane 6 think of the MMO game, Warframe?

    Mane 6 and Autobot partners

    If the Mane 6 had Autobot partners, who would they be?
  11. Sunset asking that Starlight is Twilight's student in "Mirror Magic" and Starlight saying yes indicates that this takes place before season 7. Do to the fact that Starlight was not in "Dungeons and Discord" could say after the mane 6 left to Yakyakistan Starlight went with Sunset to the EQG world and might have been a little confused about the difference between a friendship mission and a "overnight goodwill tour", and after returning being there for a few days she might have gotten a habit of using the EQG dialog such as hand which would explain why Starlight used the word hand twice in "Every Little Thing She Does". Which would make sense having "Mirror Magic" take place between "Dungeons and Discord" and "Every Little Thing She Does".
  12. Having Starlight and Trixie together in the movie means it has to take pace after "No Second Prances" sense that's the first time they met. Not having the Royal Guard would explain why Celestia had Flash Magnus be the new drill sargent after season 7. Having it take place then would also explain why the changelings and the Pillers of Equestria were not in the movie but I'm not sure about the yaks but if the movie takes place after "No Second Prances" the mane 6 haven't been to Yakyakistan yet, unless you count Pinkie kinda. But griffins probably wouldn't want to help, and sense Ember just became Dragon Lord she probably needs to impose her rule, and that I don't think the ponies would trust all the dragons yet to listen to Ember. As for the map expanding, remember the map was broken after "The Cutie Re-Mark", which would also explain why it took so long and that Mount Aris needed to be repaired and the new train station there. As for Twilight saying "This happened while we were gone?" could be when they went after the Pony of Shadows instead of the Storm King. Why Sandbar mentioned The Storm King but not Queen Chrysalis nor the Pony of Shadows is that no pony would probably know that Chrysalis replaced the mane 6, the princesses, etc and that the Pony of Shadows never appeared in public, and why Apple Bloom was recapping the movie in "surf and/or Turf" was because The Storm King was what directly affected the hippogriffs. This I the best I can do saying it takes place between season 6 episodes 6-7 and explaining how. But there is one thing that contradicts all of this unless you can help me, the new throne room, it is possible they were working on a new throne room for a while and was finished in the movie in a different part of the castle and was going to turn the old throne room into something else but for what happened to the new one in the movie they had to go back to the old one while that was being repaired, but the whole of Canterlot got repaired when they retuned all the magic at the end of the movie? Write below if you can think of any reason why Celestia and Luna would still be using the old throne room until season 8.
  13. A lot of fans seem to think the Mane 6 have reached the limit of their character development. What makes them think this?
  14. At the end of "The Ticket Master" how were the Mane 6 using magic to carry the tickets home. Spike wasn't and Twilight and Rarity make sense being unicorns but the others shouldn't be able to use magic.

    Fluttershy Is Not Shy

    Fluttershy isn't shy... and never really had been, with the exception of the first episode where she first meets Twilight Sparkle. But even then, it was more of an act of social anxiety, as someone who is shy would still answer to questions, especially when they are in a one-on-one conversation. She has never acted like that since the first episode, so she was more or less out of character in comparison of the rest of the show. Yes, Fluttershy is the following: timid, introvert, meek, reticent, quiet and apprehensive, but she isn't shy; she can, and has on numerous occasions, went up to a stranger or group of strangers and talked to them, without breaking a sweat. She also has stage fright, but this is also not related with shyness. Anyone can have stage fright, but the show just decides to go with the whole cliché "cowered who is scared of everything" stereotype, and uses Fluttershy as the main protagonists that overcomes fears, instead of using other characters to create more unique and realistic character personalities. Although, this is a kids show after all. All the characters are strongly based on stereotypes and each have particular roles within the show. This is used to make it easier for the audience to follow as well as demonstrates juxtaposition between each of the characters. Most people, including myself, would have assumed Fluttershy portrayed as being shy, due to her name: Flutter"shy." However, her name is only to describe her being a pegasus and having an interest in animals. It also describes her butterfly cutie mark, by the use of assonance, consonance and end rhyme. I have done a lot of research in to this subject from books and articles; not just searches off the internet. I'm sure some people may disagree with me or have a different understanding of the word "shy." This this is just my thoughts and knowledge on the subject. I'm not trying to go against anyone who likes Fluttershy being a shy character (I'm aware some people relate to her that way, witch I think is great; there's nothing wrong with personal alterations.) I just wanted to share this information, as a lot of people can get confused with the true meanings and definitions of words. A lot of other forms of media have made the same misunderstandings in their work too. It's a miscommunication made by many people as it's never a popular topic and possibly mislead by varies of social dialect. For those who don't know, the "true" definition of shy, is to feel unconfotable around strangers and find it hard to talk to them. That is it. Fluttershy has never deminstraited this ever (apart from the first episode's "funny" joke with Twilight.) People confuse being too kind and polite, timid, scared and quiet with shyness.

    Mane 6 with economy?

    Hello everypony, I'm not sure if this topic has already been up before but I couldn't find it, so I made my own. So, yesterday I was thinking about economy and how the ponies hold up with money. Specifically, the mane 6. Applejack has a family that she has to take care of, so she obviously needs to earn money and we've seen in the show that money is what she often aims for when it comes to it. She wanted to sell at the Gala, she sells cider, she sells apples and pies in a stand in the middle of Ponyville.. She really tries to earn money now and again. This fixation is probably because she needs to take care of her farm and family to keep it all running. Pinkie Pie works at Sugarcube Corner, probably to earn money and buy her party accessories? And I cannot imagine that it's free to live in a house like they all do. They probably pay rent somehow, all of them. Rarity has her boutique, makes dresses for others and probably earns money that way. She has a sister as well, that she sometimes need to take care of. As well as keeping her budget up to buy fabric and other necessary things for her dress-making. Twilight is a Princess now but I'm not sure how she makes money... She was a student of Celestia before, so I'm still a bit confused about that. Has anyone else gotten any idea? Rainbow Dash literally doesn't do much at all. Perhaps she works for Clouds-dale somehow, but that sounds a bit weak of a theory to me. Fluttershy takes care of ponies pets, but I cannot imagine she would charge many ponies for anything like that. Otherwise she doesn't do much for a living either... Lend me your ideas and thoughts, I'd love to know what you think!
  17. 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?
  18. DivineBlood1000

    Least favorite of the Mane 6?

    For me... it has to be Rarity!

    Mane 6's Instruments

    Hey everypony, I hadn't made a topic in a while and I was just thinking. If each of the mane six played an instrument... what would their instrument be? It can be any instrument that exists and is considered an instrument. here are my thoughts. Apple Jack: Acoustic Guitar Fluttershy: Flute Rainbow Dash: Electric guitar. Rarity: Harp Pinkie: One man band (obviously) Twilight: Theremin Share your thoughts.

    Why does everyone like Princess Luna?

    I just want to know why a lot of bronies like her (not that I don't). We rarely see her and the only major appearances she has made are in Nightmare Night and When the Sweetie Belle Toils, and we barely know her character unlike the mane 6. So leave your thoughts down below because I'm actually curious about this.
  21. My guess as to how the Mane 6 found out the friendship mission was a fake was that the map contacted them through their cutie marks in Morse Code. Twilight of all ponies would most likely be able to translate it.
  22. So I was wondering as the show goes on, characters do change over time and I want to know what are your thought toward it? Do you think there is a character's development from the Mane 6 at all? If so, is it for the best or for the worst? And what changes would you expect later in the show if any are needed? I will show my feedback later.
  23. I mean, if you look at the first half of this season, you have episodes that center around that in some way, (Horse Play), (Non-Compete Clause), (The Maud Couple), (Fake it, Till You Make It), (The Parent Map), and recently the Mid-Season Finale (The Mean 6). If those and what's to come in the 2nd half , if that doesn't show you that this season is about really testing their friendship and learning to accept each other for who they are and what they like and dislike, then I don't know what does. I also won't be surprised, (because IMO it seems to be possibly leading to this), that the School remains open as it is, but that Twilight and her Friends decide to step down as the staff of the school, because they'll come to realize that even though the idea for the school is a good one, that after everything they've gone through this past season, and the strong tests that their Friendship has had to endure, that they themselves still have a lot to learn about Friendship, and that also balancing their other priorities along with being teachers, isn't working out for them, and possibly hand off the teaching duties to those that they know can handle it and balance the time to do it. Or they can change it up a bit, to where School only is open maybe 2-3 times a week, and thus the rest of the week they can focus on strengthing their friendship with each other, and focus on their other priorities outside of teaching. And yes, in the end this will lead to a possibly Neighsay redemption at the end of the season. But what do you guys all think? Comments are Welcomed.
  24. Mane 6 (and Spike!) Applejack This relationship has definitely seen the most development. From barely being able to stand each other for more than a few hours in “Look Before You Sleep”, they now seem to be quite firm friends. Of course, Rarity still tries to get Applejack to be more ladylike, and Applejack still thinks Rarity needs to be less fussy, but overall, they seem to have come to an understanding of each other. Applejack’s selflessness devotion to her family has helped Rarity strengthen her bond with Sweetie Belle, where before she was a little selfish. Applejack taught her the importance of compromising. Highlights: Episode 46. “It’s About Time”: Applejack fixes the crack in the dam, while Rarity fixes up the leaves in AJ’s mane. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Applejack cheers Rarity up with a kind word in “The Crystal Empire”. Episode 61. “Spike at Your Service”: Rarity teaches Applejack how to play the “damsel in distress”. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Applejack says bluntly, “Yep, you were pretty rotten…” Episode 78. “Simple Ways”: They each parody the other. Twilight Sparkle I don’t usually ship Mane Six members together, but when I do, it’s Rarilight. If I were one to let subtext reign supreme, I would believe these two are already in a relationship. Right from the first episode, Rarity has been very touchy-feely with Twilight. Just go watch the end of “The Crystal Empire”, and tell me she doesn’t act rather tenderly towards Twilight there. She was the first to start singing, went to Twilight to raise her head up with a gentle touch to the chin when Twilight blushed, and put her hoof over Twilight’s as the train left. Sorry, Spike, you’re losing out to your adopted big sister. Even if you ignore the subtext, it’s clear Rarity has a strong regard for Twilight. She noticed she was bothered in “Lesson Zero”, she worried about Twilight not having her crown in Equestria Girls, and most importantly, although she wanted to marry a prince and be a princess, she has never once expressed the slightest sense of jealousy that Twilight is now a Princess and not her. That’s pretty telling, because she was jealous of Fluttershy, and they’re probably the two who spend the most of their time together. Highlights Episode 16. “Sonic Rainboom”: Rarity rump bumps Twilight to encourage her to find a spell. Episode 29. “Lesson Zero”: Rarity calls Twilight a drama queen, after a day of non-stop drama. Episode 53-54. “The Crystal Empire”: Rarity starts the song to Twilight. Rainbow Dash Rarity’s relationship to Rainbow is similar to Applejack, only with a lot less butting of heads. They don’t usually interact, and when they do, it’s pretty low key. We mostly see Rarity doing nice things for Rainbow, like making her a pretty dress for Princess Celestia’s visit, or supporting her in competitions... at first. Not much else to say. Highlights Episode 14. “Suited for Success”: Rarity facedesks when Rainbow can’t be any clearer about her dress than it needs to be cooler. Episode 47. “Dragon Quest”: Rarity tells Rainbow she was surprised her plan worked, and gets a rump to the face in response. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: Rarity gives Rainbow a very snarky response to her fanfiction plot, which goes right over Rainbow’s head. Episode 75. “Rainbow Falls”: Rarity takes the relay horseshoe to paint it, to Rainbow’s annoyance. Fluttershy Indications are that Rarity and Fluttershy have been firm friends for a very long time. They often have spa dates together, and Rarity frequently tries to bring Fluttershy out of her shell. Being the prettiest and second-most ladylike Mane Six, they seem to have a lot in common. Their Elements are also quite compatible, since Generosity is being giving with one’s possessions and Kindness is being giving with one’s time and emotion. Other indications of their closeness include Fluttershy helping Rarity with Opal, Rarity calling on her when she needs someone to fly up and help her borrow the Castle decorations. She also tried very hard to be happy for Fluttershy when she caught the eye of Photo Finish, and felt terrible when she was envious. She also very quickly forgave Fluttershy for the vicious tongue-lashing she got in “Putting your Hoof Down”. Highlights Episode 17. “Stare Master”: Rarity is speechless when a quiet word from Fluttershy pulls the CMC into line. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Rarity pushes a slack-jawed Pinkie’s mouth closed after Fluttershy stands up to Iron Will. Episode 57. “Magic Duel”: Rarity creates a camouflage outfit for Fluttershy that includes bunny ears. Episode 79. “Filli Vanilli”: Rarity quickly picks up on Fluttershy’s eagerness to continue singing. Pinkie Pie Again, not really much to say here. Rarity is sometimes exasperated at Pinkie’s antics, and can even be quite stern with her, but they tend to get along very well most of the time. Pinkie also seems to put some trust in Rarity. In “Last Round-up”, she simply leaps off the stagecoach and tells Rarity to catch her. Highlights Episode 7. “Dragonshy”: Pinkie beats Rarity at Tic-Tac-Toe… 35 times in a row. Episode 45. “Putting Your Hoof Down”: Pinkie and Rarity team up to help Fluttershy be more assertive, but she does so badly that Pinkie buries her head in the ground. Rarity tries to comfort her with a gentle hoof on her mane. Episode 62. “Keep Calm and Flutter On”: Rarity checks her reflection in Pinkie’s newly polished hooves. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: After Rarity delivers her “going down in flames, isn’t friendship magic?” line, Pinkie gives her a sheepish grin and nods agreement. Spike This is one of the most important and talked about relationships in the series. Ironically, given that FiM doesn’t have much by way of romance. A lot of people give Rarity grief over what they see as her taking advantage of him. In some ways, they’re right, but it’s actually much more of a give and take than is sometimes recognized. Yes, she gets him to do stuff for her, but most of the time, Spike’s perfectly okay with it. And she’s hardly the only Mane Six who does. She also frequently gives him rewards for his troubles, such as gems to eat, a carrot-dog, etc. She also sticks up for Spike frequently, and went to great lengths to keep him safe in “Dragon Quest”. It’s clear that she does care for him in her own way. I suspect that Rarity simply doesn’t know exactly how to handle Spike’s precocious crush on her. After all, by the standards of dragonhood, Spike is not even a teenager yet. She can’t view him as a romantic prospect, but she cares for him and certainly wouldn’t want to hurt his feelings. So, until she can find a way to let him down gently, she keeps their relationship at status quo. Perhaps in her mind, letting him do things for her is a way of showing that she does want him to be around. Not always, of course, but I think that’s a large part of it. Highlights Episode 19. “A Dog and Pony Show”: Spike valiantly defends Rarity from the Diamond Dogs. Episode 36. “Secret of My Excess”: The most touching Rarity-Spike moment, as he tries to confess while falling, only for her to shush him and show that she already knows. Episode 61. “Spike at your Service”: She takes a bite out of his terrible pie to make him happy. Episode 73. “Rarity Takes Manehatten”: Rarity gives Spike that carrot-dog, which is promptly stolen by a bird. He has it again later, so either he got it back or bought a replacement. Family: Parents, Sweetie Belle and Opal Rarity seems to be deliberately avoiding taking after her parents, who seems like very friendly, if unsophisticated types. Middle class is probably a good way to describe them. We don’t yet know if her dad is a unicorn or earth pony, due to his hat. (BREAKING NEWS - He actually is a unicorn, as shown in "Imagination Manifestation"!) She hasn’t really interacted with them enough to get much of an idea of how close she is to them. While Opal can be temperamental, she seems to have affection for Rarity in her own enigmatic cat way. Her moods follow Rarity’s, and she tries to remind her mistress of her priorities at times. Opal seems to stoically suffer some of Rarity’s more whimsical tendencies, such as her baby-talking and coddling. Rarity’s relationship with Sweetie Belle is the focus of a fair number of episodes. While their sisterly relationship has had its ups and downs, Sweetie Belle clearly looks up to Rarity, and Rarity clearly loves her and tries to do good things for her. While she took her a bit for granted in earlier seasons, Rarity has gotten much better at compromising, mainly due to the events of “Sisterhooves Social”. Where before she would put her own comfort and desires first, she’s now more willing to sacrifice them for Sweetie’s sake. The most recent episodes have shown that Sweetie has long been harbouring a grudge for Rarity overshadowing her, and they may become even closer now that Sweetie has realized that Rarity doesn’t want to keep her in her shadow. Highlights Episode 31. “Sisterhooves Social”: We get to meet Rarity’s parents. This episode also improves the sisters’ relationship. Episode 35. “Sweet and Elite”: Opal taps the design for Twilight’s dress, and is annoyed when Rarity doesn’t notice. Episode 58. “Sleepless in Ponyville”: Despite despising camping and “all that… ugh… nature”, Rarity is willing to brave the wilderness for her sister… as long as no heavy hauling for her is involved. Sweetie doesn’t seem to mind, just being glad that Rarity is there. Romantic Prospects Fancy Pants Catching the eye of this stallion is one of the best things ever to happen to Rarity. He’s also later appeared in Ponyville and Manehatten. Could he be following Rarity around? And is that supermodel pony who always hangs on him just eye candy, or a romantic partner? For Rarity’s sake, I hope not! Trenderhoof Creepy shrine? Check. Trying everything she can to win him over? Check. Learning that changing yourself for someone else is a bad thing? Check. Getting over him? Antagonists: Discord Along with most of the others, Rarity is skeptical of Discord’s change of heart. She blames him for the embarrassment of making her think a rock was a diamond, and so she has little patience or sympathy for him. Photo Finish Photo Finish was rather abrupt to her, made Fluttershy a star and caused Rarity to feel like she had betrayed her best friend by being so jealous. Photo Finish has yet to return in a speaking part, but she was present in a cameo during “Sweet and Elite”, so we could speculate that Rarity is over it. Prince Blueblood Apart from acting like a prat, he used her as a pony shield against flying cake. In the dress she was terrified somepony would spill something on in “A Bird in the Hoof”. A crime against fashion! After she told him just what she thought of him, she was forced to flee, and smashed her glass slipper so that he couldn’t find her. Despite this, he also had a cameo, so perhaps she has forgiven him too. Trixie Although Trixie has done some nasty things to her, Rarity seems to dislike Trixie mainly because of how she treated Twilight. Perhaps we can learn more if Trixie gets another episode (I’m counting the minutes ). Suri Polomane Suri represents what Rarity could become if she lost her sense of generosity. And morals in general. Although Rarity was deeply hurt by her betrayal, she didn’t try to excuse her own bad behaviour towards her friends. She also doesn’t seem to feel a need to get revenge on Suri for taking advantage of her generosity. Perhaps she considers Suri losing her talented assistant, Coco Pommel, to be punishment enough. And with that, I draw this three-part analysis of Rarity to a close. Do you think I was accurate? Do you disagree with my points or have something more to add? Any comments are welcomed. Until next time, stay Rarity-side up!
  25. Which voice out of the mane 6 do you like best? I think the voice acting in that show definitely makes it what it is. They are all done well but I think Rarity has the best one. Even though I really like Rainbow Dash's voice, I just think that Rarity's is just funnier when she's being dramatic.
