  1. Welcome to the 2019 Edition of the Cider Season Trivia. As most if not all of you are aware, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has recently had its series finale. Though the adventure has come to an end in cartoon form, the adventure continues on through the fandom and beyond. Never forget that. This is the first trivia event post-series finale so don't expect to see any questions here based on the final three episodes. I know many of you are still trying to come to terms with it so we're avoiding those episodes completely. This will also be the case for the next few trivia events until a time comes where most have come to an acceptance. I'm not sure about other events on the forums so you'd have to check with the other EC's and administrators on that. Now then. I have here twelve questions for you to answer that are dedicated to Applejack. The questions will cover both Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls excluding the comics, the final three episodes, and the final Equestria Girls special. FiM will have priority though as there is more content there than in EQG. You will need to submit your answers to @Applejack and she will respond to them as early as two days after the trivia has ended. Like before, you will have four days from when the trivia is posted to submit answers. Also, working together is allowed and you can ask for some help but please don't spoil any answers by blatantly posting them. Use private messages or a spoiler tag though be sure to indicate this with the latter. No discussions of the final three episodes in this thread! You know where to go for those kinds of discussions. Again, submit your answers to @Applejack. Ready? Okay. 1. How did Applejack get her cutie mark? Note: You can go with a simple or long explanation, your choice. 2. In 'Return of Harmony Part 1', what did Applejack witness when Discord placed her under his magic? 3. What did Applejack want to do for the Apple Family Reunion? 4. What was the artefact that represented Applejack's key to the Chest of Harmony? 5. In 'Hearthbreakers', Applejack tried doing what for the Pie Family though they didn't necessarily want it? 6. What was Applejack's lie in 'Where the Apple Lies'? 7. Applejack had to look for what during 'Shadow Play Part 1'? 8. Applejack wanted to say what about Celestia in 'Horse Play'? 9. During the 200th episode, what was Twilight's plan for Applejack? What was Rarity's plan for her? 10. Applejack gained a new kind of magic in 'Legend of Everfree'. What was it? 11. Why was Applejack jealous of Rarity in 'Rollercoaster of Friendship'? 12. In 'Spring Breakdown', what did Applejack attempt to do that ultimately failed?
  2. One of the most refreshing things I’ve found as a writer is the ability to add in references to outside media, current events, etc. A well placed reference is fun to toss in, rewarding when found by the reader, and can give your ego a good pat when it’s recognized by the reader. Most of the time trivia and references are just added for extra “flavor,” though building a plot using a simple reference is not unheard of. However, as with everything else, it’s possible to overdo or ham up a reference. If you make it really in your face, then it fails because it becomes too obvious and self serving. Its an amateur mistake that I make far too often. It’s not the end of the world if something goes unnoticed. If they want to get the reference, they will. With the exception of inside jokes, there aren’t often reasons to repeat references throughout the story. If the reference is important to the plot, repetition can be important. Otherwise, repetition has roughly the same effect as making the reference too obvious. All in all, it’s a fairly simple balance to meet, but can pack a lot of extra flavor for the story, which is nice. Just remember that less is more in most cases. Side note: I hid one in here somewhere.
  3. Welcome to the Friendship Day Trivia. How about that? We have come full circle as this is the second time the MLP Forums have celebrated Friendship Day in terms of having events dedicated to it. Last year, we didn't have a trivia event as the Event Coordinator team was still being assembled though there were some questions offered by Princess Twilight herself. This year however, we do have trivia, though this was already obvious as why else would you be reading this? Anyway, I have ten questions here dedicated to Princess Twilight... as well as her human counterpart, Sci-Twi. Surprised? Don't be. I've made it my goal to include both Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls into these trivia events so that the latter doesn't get left out. Ahem... seven of the questions are FiM themed while the other three are EQG themed. Is there a bonus question to be had? Not this time, but then you need to answer all ten questions correctly to receive a badge. Since this is starting much later than usual, you will still have four days to submit your answers, but the first day will start the day after this has been posted. In other words, it will run from August 8 to August 11 before being locked in the end. What's that? Who do I send my answers to? None other than Princess Twilight though she goes under @Twilight Sparkle for reasons known only to her. Again, it's @Twilight Sparkle. Are you ready? Good. If not, then it's too late as here we go. 1. Who did Twilight give 'Twilight Time' to originally? 2. Why did Twilight follow Pinkie Pie in secret for a day? 3. What did Twilight do to earn her crown? 4. Who are the names of Twilight's students? 5. How many bells did Twilight wear on her Starswirl the Bearded costume? 6. What is the one food that Twilight is afraid of? 7. What was Twilight afraid Rarity would do to her during their first meeting? 8. When Twilight becomes a human in the Equestria Girls series, she has a particular quirk due to her originally being a pony. What is this quirk? 9. Sci-Twi became a pony during the events of Spring Breakdown. What is different about her compared to Princess Twilight? 10. Midnight Sparkle desired what in Friendship Games?
  4. Welcome to the Rainbow Dash Day trivia. Yes, another trivia, and mere days after the previous one ended. Isn't the schedule a funny thing sometimes? Some events come up at the last minute and have to be shoe-horned in somewhere without disrupting what has been planned for months. Anyway, I hope you're all ready for this especially since Celestia's questions proved tricky. Unlike her, Rainbow Dash has had numerous appearances throughout the years, both in Friendship is Magic, and Equestria Girls. This time, there are two sets of questions for you to tackle in the hopes of getting a badge. The first set is strictly FiM whilst the other is strictly EQG. There is a badge for each set of questions so it's not a matter of choosing one over the other, especially if you're the kind of person who wants as many badges as possible. All questions must be answered correctly if you want both badges. Luckily, there are no bonus questions for this given how much you have to comb through anyway. You will need to submit your answers to @Rainbow Dash, but don't expect her to respond to them as soon as you send them. I know she's supposed to be fast but even she has to abide by how we do things around here. She must wait until this event ends before she can look at what you've sent. Again, @Rainbow Dash is the one you must send answers to this time. As before, four days is how much time you have though extensions are available provided the reason is legitimate enough. Extensions can be granted depending on how serious they are. Any questions? Probably, but we don't have time for them as we'd be declared too slow. Let us get started then. Friendship is Magic. 1. How did Rainbow Dash get her Cutie Mark? 2. What is Rainbow Dash's Wonderbolt nickname? 3. In the 2017 movie, what did Rainbow Dash do that helped their pursuers find them? 4. What was the problem with Rainbow Dash's dress for the Grand Galloping Gala? 5. Who are Rainbow Dash's parents, and why did she not tell them she was a Wonderbolt? 6. What did Rainbow Dash try to get in the Rainbow Falls trader's exchange? 7. What is Rainbow Dash's pet, and why did she chose it? 8. What prank did Ponyville pull on Rainbow Dash to make her understand that her pranks had gone too far? Equestria Girls. 1. Rainbow Dash and Applejack weren't on speaking terms in the first Equestria Girls movie for what reason? 2. Why was Fluttershy upset with Rainbow Dash when it comes to the Rainbooms in Rainbow Rocks? 3. During the Tri-Cross Relay, what did Rainbow Dash do to save Sunset Shimmer? 4. Rainbow Dash was worried that something would happen to a photo of the group in the yearbook in Forgotten Friendship. What was she worried about? 5. In Spring Breakdown, Rainbow Dash sees something magical in the water. What did she see? 6. When Rainbow Dash became a pony, what was the one distinguishing feature that set her apart from the pony Rainbow Dash?
  5. Welcome to the Summer Sun Celebration Trivia event. It's been a while since the forums have had a trivia, but now the time has come for a new one to make itself known. As you know, summer has now begun in the northern hemisphere--the south just started winter--and that means a certain princess gets to shine. Princess Celestia might not have had as many appearances as her fellow princesses but she continues to be a shining beacon of hope for all creatures in Equestria... and at a certain school within the realm of humans. This trivia is all Celestia based... both versions of her. Unlike previous trivia where it was all Friendship is Magic themed questions and one Equestria Girls question, this time, both have been given equal treatment. In my eyes, EQG has long since proven itself worthy of standing on equal footing with FiM. So what have I got here? Eight questions, four from FiM, and four from EQG. If you wish to earn a badge, all questions must be answered correctly. Luckily, there is no bonus question this time so you don't have to look for anything truly obscure. Like previous trivia events, four days is how long you've got to submit your answers. And, I'm sure you've already figured out to send answers to @Princess Celestia. She will also handle the EQG answers. Again, send to @Princess Celestia. Any questions? No? Good! Let's begin. 1. Princess Celestia once teased Mr. and Mrs. Cake. How did she do this? 2. Principal Celestia contributed a gift when she went to Camp Everfree as a camper. What was it? 3. In the season nine premiere, Rainbow Dash mentioned what regarding Princess Celestia? 4. In Friendship Games, how did Principal Celestia react to seeing Sci-Twi after Principal Cinch escorted her away? 5. What is the one drawback Princess Celestia has to deal with regarding having to work the night shift in 'A Royal Problem'? 6. What did Princess Celestia do to make Twilight freak out in 'Forgotten Friendship'? 7. 'Horse Play' revealed what flaw about Princess Celestia? 8. 'Schedule Swap' had Principal Celestia deal with what particular problem?
  6. Welcome to the Chaos Appreciation Day on the MLP Forums. It seems that not even the trivia event is safe from the chaotic nature of Discord. But, I must persevere and present you a trivia with a twist that only the Master of Chaos himself could've come up with in his bid to make the forums that more crazy. There is a badge that can be awarded here but the question is can you answer... with questions? The twist is this. Normally, you would be given questions and need to find the answers, but this time you've been given the answers and need to seek out the questions. Is it confusing you already? Well, Discord is known for doing that. Think of this trivia as playing a game of Jeopardy only without any money, Daily Doubles, and so on. The answers have been written in a way where there is only one solution as opposed to multiple ones. Believe me, you'll thank me for that as had we gone with the multiple route... let's just say that things would've become even more chaotic than they already are. Send your 'questions' to @Discord though expect him to be chaotic in his responses to you. Again, send them to @Discord. How many 'answers' do we have here? I can see many of them but here comes another twist in the greater game. All of these answers are bonuses which means you need to provide the questions for about... I'd say half of them. Oh, and the answers below aren't in any particular order, so there's that. Hints are available if you need them but be careful as they could be even more confusing, or they might be helpful. I did say that this trivia wasn't safe from Discord's shenanigans. Finally, you've got the standard four days to complete this before the thread is locked. Let's get started. 1. Captain Wuzz. 2. Sugar Belle's wagon wheel. 3. 'You see, this is the first rule of our game: no flying, and no magic. The second rule is everypony has to play or the game is over, and I win. Good luck, everypony!' 4. The Smooze. 5. The Pink Heart of Courage. 6. A balloon animal. 7. Normality. 8. 'To fill in for Twilight, of course, as head-draconequus. I seem to recall a whole song about how this school is where you make your own rules. Now, who better at that than me?' 9. Blue Flu. 10. Plunder Seeds. 11. 'A bit reindeer ex machina, but... two thumbs way up! Woo!' 12. A statue. 13. Perfect tea party. 14. Winterchilla. 15. A candle. 16. 'A cuddle with a Pekingese. A singing harp who's named Louise. A goat on skis, a new trapeze. And more and more and more and more of these.'
  7. Welcome to the Hearts and Hooves Day Trivia here on the MLP Forums. Unlike most previous trivia challenges that were dedicated to specific characters, this one is focused on a special day that is well known in Equestria. In our world, we refer to this occasion as Valentine's Day. Amongst ponies, it is known as Hearts and Hooves Day. I know what you're probably thinking right now. You think you're going to be given a series of questions that revolve around the obvious couple of Friendship is Magic, Shining Armour and Princess Cadance, right? Yet you'd be wrong about that. I mean, they are a part of the occasion yet there are other couples who are also a part of this so they deserve their due as well. Whether you're involved in a relationship or are single, you can take part in this trivia in order to earn yourself a badge. The questions here are taken from Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls, and are focused purely on the romance side of things. The comics are not being included here as apparently not everyone has read them so including them would lead to confusion. So who do you send your answers to this time? I think @Princess Cadance would be appropriate enough. She is the Princess of Love after all and this special day does resonate with her even if she isn't its poster pony. Yes, please send your answers to her. You do have the standard four days after this thread is posted and you are allowed to work with others. Hints for most questions will be provided when necessary as well. Again, send your answers to @Princess Cadance. How many questions? Will eight and a bonus suffice? That's what you've got so no complaints please. Q1. What do the CMC do for Big Macintosh in 'Hearts and Hooves Day'? Q2. Why was Twilight upset about her brother's marriage? Q3. Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda's wedding had several problems that weren't their doing. Name at least two of these problems. Q4. Though they did not become a couple, what do Big Macintosh and Marble Pie have in common? Q5. Big Macintosh had to compete with someone to win the heart of Sugar Belle. Who was it? Q6. In 'The Break-Up Breakdown', what caused romance troubles between Big Macintosh and Sugar Belle? Q7. Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry were once an item though the former did so for what reason? Q8. In Legend of Everfree, what did Gloriosa Daisy do that prevented Twilight Sparkle and Timber Spruce from having their special moment? Bonus. In the 'Text Support' short of Equestria Girls, who are the three individuals who can help Twilight Sparkle deal with what Timber Spruce sent her? Also, what happens in each of their respective scenarios? (Note: For the second part, a good explanation for each scenario is needed.)
  8. Welcome to the International Derpy Day Trivia on the MLP Forums. I know what you're all probably thinking right now. Since when is this an official day? The answer? It is because of reasons that most likely involve magic. Anyway, no doubt you know just how popular Derpy has been in the MLP fandom ever since she first became recognized amongst the many background characters that exist. Even though she does have an official name in Friendship is Magic, I'll be utilizing her fandom name because I'd rather not cause a scene. International Derpy Day Trivia... There is a badge associated with Derpy that you can win--I'm sure you all know what it looks like--but you will need to answer these questions. No... none of them are derpish in any way even though that would've made things more interesting. Instead, these questions are taken from both Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls. Of course EQG would be included here. After all, I make sure it gets included in these trivia challenges. Ahem! Who do you submit your answers to? Why @Derpy herself! Don't worry. Nothing is going to go wrong here. Here are ten questions for you to sink your teeth into plus a bonus. This last one can be used as a substitute answer in case you get one of the regular ones wrong. As before, you can work together with others though the difficulty could change depending on how you go about it. Finally, you have the usual four days to submit answers. In other words, I will lock this thread sometime on Friday. Remember! Submit to @Derpy! Not me, @Derpy! Are we good? Excellent. Here are your questions. 1. In which episode does Derpy first speak in? 2. Who does Derpy fight in 'Lesson Zero' due to Twilight's spell? 3. What is Derpy's Costume in Luna Eclipsed? 4. After being absent for a long time, Derpy returns in 'Rainbow Falls'. What does she end up doing? 5. What does Derpy deliver to Starlight Glimmer in 'To Where and Back Again Pt 1'? 6. What does Derpy mess up in 'Slice of Life'? 7. How does Derpy make a first impression at the School of Friendship in 'School Raze'? 8. Derpy gave Rarity quite a lot of stress during 'The Best Gift Ever'. What exactly did she do? 9. It can be said that Derpy is similar to a famous storybook character who was 'always difficult to find in a crowd' due to people trying to spot her. Who is this character? 10. Flash Sentry and Derpy have a sort of running gag in the Equestria Girls series. What is it? Bonus: In 'Rainbow Rocks', Derpy and two other characters had their own band. What are the names of the other two band members? What instruments did each of them play?
  9. Welcome to the Surrogate Scootaloo Day Trivia here on the MLP Forums. In the midst of Making Christmas Merrier, an event dedicated to Scootaloo is celebrated here on the forums around this time. Unlike in the past, this year's iteration has a trivia challenge associated with it. So I'm sure you can all spend some time answering these questions dedicated to Scootaloo. As usual, answer them all correctly and you will obtain a badge that will certainly have Scootaloo's seal of approval on it, and of course the bonus can be used as a substitute in case you get one of the regular ones wrong. How many questions? I believe there are eight here plus the bonus question so that should be plenty. Be sure to submit your answers to @Scootaloo and not me as if you send them to me, I would have to send them her way so please send your answers to her. Collaboration is still allowed as well as research and being given hints but I would appreciate if people don't post answers or close to that effect and hiding them with the spoiler tag. Some people are curious enough that they will want to check those out thus ruining their experience. You won't be punished or anything but it would be inconvenient. Remember, submit your answers to @Scootaloo. Oh, and this trivia will be active for the next four days. Ready for the questions? Q1. What was Scootaloo's first appearance in the show? Q2. What is Scootaloo's Cutie Mark? Q3. In which episode did Scootaloo start an Rainbow Dash fan club? Q4. When was Scootaloo taken under Rainbow Dash's wing? Q5. What two birds has Scootaloo been referred to as by the Cutie Mark Crusaders? Q6. After receiving their Cutie Marks, who was the CMC's first client? Q7. What mode of transportation does Scootaloo use to meet Rainbow Dash's parents in Parental Glideance? Q8. In the Canterlot Movie Club EQG short, what was Scootaloo dressed up as? Bonus: What are the names of Scootaloo's two aunts?
  10. Welcome to 'The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time' Trivia, here on the MLP Forums. No doubt many of you are surprised at seeing this appear on a forum dedicated to pastel coloured ponies and their human counterparts. Well, if you've read Jeric's post regarding non-MLP events--if you haven't then I suggested looking at it--then you'll know that this is something that has been planned for a while now. The regular trivia rules apply here just to let that be known so don't worry about having to memorize a new set of rules or anything. How much do you know about Ocarina of Time? A lot? Very little? None at all? Well... Your knowledge is going to be tested with two sets of questions dedicated to the game. Fortunately, you only need to answer the first set in order to obtain a badge. Yes, this trivia does have a badge so you're not doing this and getting nothing in return. Of course, if you were to answer the second set, you would get a better version of the badge in question as proof that you are a master of this game and its intricate secrets. Can you earn both badges? Yes, but only if you're a master. Anyway, the first set of questions are dedicated to Ocarina of Time. The second set is dedicated to the Master Quest version, the Nintendo 3DS remake, and some trivia that you would normally not consider when playing. That should make things more interesting. Unlike the previous trivia sub-events, there is no cast character to submit your answers to. So this time, you will be sending your answers to me directly. This also means that I am the one to ask for any questions, concerns, and hints where applicable. Each set has twelve questions and a bonus but remember that the Master Quest set are optional. Only those truly dedicated will attempt to answer those. This thread will remain open for the next four days as per usual. You know the drill with this bit by now. Remember, send your answers to me @Ganondorf8 Ready? Here we go! Ocarina of Time Set. Q1. How many dungeons exist in Ocarina of Time? Q2. What is known as Dampé, the Gravekeeper's 'stretching shrinking keepsake'? Q3. How many 'spiders of the curse' are there in total? Q4. The Stone of Agony resembles which Nintendo peripheral? Q5. How many songs can be learned on the ocarina? Q6. Who said the following and when? A. "You must have seen the white horse gallop past just now." B. "Oh! Oh-oh! C'mon! Come on! Come on! Come on! HOT!! What a hot beat! WHOOOOAH! YEEEEAH! YAHOOO!!" C. "Now I can get back to my blade business! My worrrrrk is not verrrry consistent, so I'll give this to you so you won't forrrrrget." D. "Past, present, future... The Master Sword is a ship with which you can sail upstream and downstream through time's river..." Q7. Who is the Guardian Spirit of the Forest? Q8. How many rupees does one need to purchase all ten magic beans? Q9. What are 'The Sacred Feet'? Q10. What does one do in the 'Forest Stage'? Q11. Like-Like is a creature that does what? Q12. The Mask of Truth has what special power? Bonus: Name all of the items obtained in the trading sequence, in order, that leads to the strongest sword in the game. (You need to name this as well) (Note: Spelling is optional.) (Note: I will accept the Ocarina of Time 3D name changes that were given to some of the items) Master Quest/3D/Other Set. Q1. What is the main change between Ocarina of Time and Master Quest? Q2. In Ocarina of Time 3D, the Stone of Agony was changed into what? Q3. In Master Quest, what kind of 'switches' were added to Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly? Q4. When was Master Quest released? How was it released in North America? Q5. The Water Temple, a notorious dungeon, was changed in Ocarina of Time 3D to make it much easier to navigate. What was the change? Q6. The Ice Arrows are seen as the most useless item in the game. Why is this? Q7. In Master Quest, how many Iron Knuckles are fought in the game? How many are fought originally? Q8. Ocarina of Time 3D allowed for bosses to be fought again. What kind of mode is this and how does one access it? Q9. In Master Quest, where was the dungeon item moved to in the Fire Temple? Where was it originally? Q10. What is the Hylian Loach and how does one make it appear? Q11. In Master Quest, what creature is guarding the Iron Boots in the Ice Cavern? What was guarding them originally? Q12. Ocarina of Time 3D added two additional stipulations to Master Quest. What are they? Bonus: What is the infinite Gold Skulltula trick and how is it done?
  11. Welcome to the Nightmare Night Trivia. Just when you thought that the nightmares were over, another trivia challenge has made its presence known. Surely all of you have the time to partake in this whilst going around and causing all kinds of Nightmare Night mischief. After all, you will earn a badge if you can answer these questions correctly. This time around, Nightmare Moon provided me with these questions save for the Equestria Girls bonus which happens to be my little treat. Given how powerful Nightmare Moon is during this time of the year, who was I to refuse her command to do this? I'd rather not end up suffering some kind of terrible curse or worse. The eight regular questions are all Nightmare Night related though the bonus question is something related to but not connected to the occasion. Like before, collaboration is allowed and you can be given hints for most of the questions excluding the bonus; that one you'll need to figure out on your own. @Nightmare Moon is who you should submit your answers to as well as any concerns but I can address some as well. When will she go over what you give her? When Nightmare Night has reached its conclusion. Luckily, our gracious host isn't without mercy so she will allow for some questions to be given a second attempt. However, the bonus question doesn't count because even she knows that you need to do it on your own. You'll have until the end of Nightmare Night to submit your answers which gives you a total of four days. Remember, send your answers to @Nightmare Moon. I promise that she won't cause you any trouble unless you do something to offend her. Here are your questions. Oh yeah. I forgot to mention this. There are eight questions plus one bonus. Q1. Who did Twilight dress as for Nightmare Night? Q2. Who had their first Nightmare Night during Luna Eclipsed? Q3. Why was the sleep over canceled in Stare Master? Q4. Why is Twilight headed to the Everfree Forest in Stare Master? Q5. What myth does Applejack tell Rainbow Dash in Castle of the Two Sisters in Castle Mane-ia? Q6. How does Spike reveal the Journal of the Two Sisters in Castle Mane-ia? Q7. What were the Mane Six dressed up as during Scare Master? Q8. What does Fluttershy do to scare her friends in Scare Master? Bonus: The Equestria Girls series is known for some of its characters becoming monsters. What are the names of these monsters? Who became them? And how did this happen to them? One note of warning here. You must spell out the names of the monsters correctly.
  12. Welcome to the Cider Season Trivia. In the midst of the insanity of the MLPF World Cup and the looming Nightmare Nights in the near future, Cider Season has begun and that means those who love to drink cider are going to be very happy. Hopefully, none of you are too hyped up on cider otherwise you might miss out on this. Right now, Applejack is busy dealing with an apple theft or something, but before she galloped off, she asked me to present some questions based on her exploits. Me? I don't drink cider myself so I'm more than fine to do this. There are nine questions to answer as well as a bonus question and by answering them all correctly, you will earn yourself a badge dedicated to Applejack. What is on it? I'll let you find out for yourselves. As before, you must submit your trivia answers to the right character. In this case, @Applejack. Any concerns must be sent her way though you can send them to me. Remember that hints aren't available for all questions and the bonus has none. Collaborations are also allowed so feel free to join forces with others if you feel the need to. Oh, and as usual, the bonus can be substituted as a correct answer if you're not comfortable with your answers for the regular ones. Now... Due to some issues in the previous trivia, there have been some slight changes. First of all, you will be given four days to submit your answers to a specific character, in this case, @Applejack, from the moment this trivia was posted on the forums. Also, from now on, the trivia threads will be given a time lock feature where they will automatically lock after the allotted time has passed. Once the lock happens, that particular trivia will have ended and no further submissions will be accepted barring very special circumstances. In this instance, it will lock after four days. Ready for the questions? Good because here they are. Q1. What command does Applejack use to get Winona to herd up animals? Q2. What are the cutie marks of each member of Sweet Apple Acres? Q3.

In Rollercoaster of Friendship, Pinkie Pie appoints Applejack to a special position and then the latter is able to use it to access an area that's off-limits to the public. What is the position Applejack is given? How is this position used to access the off-limits area? What does she do when she gets there? Edit: Question Five has been changed to include the correct quote. Thanks to @ChB for pointing it out.
  13. Welcome to the Smile Day Trivia here on the MLP Forums. Normally, Pinkie Pie would be here doing this, but ever since she started going around the forums doing her usual shenanigans, this became vacant so I decided to take it upon myself to once again host the trivia. Like before, there is a badge you can earn dedicated to Pinkie Pie by answering the questions below. However, it seems Pinkie made more questions than what was needed so I had to choose from what she provided. However, there was a distinct lack of an Equestria Girls question so I've taken the liberty of including that one myself. You will have 48 hours to submit your answers plus an additional 24 hour extension thus giving you a total of 72 hours. You are allowed to collaborate with other users in order to find the answers yet this may or may not alter the overall difficulty. Will hints be provided? Yes, but that will vary depending on how easy or difficult the question is. This means that some questions will have hints while others won't. It's probably best for people to go out and research the answers on their own. Note: There is no hint for the bonus question as that is meant to be challenging. Please submit your answers to @Pinkie Pie. I guarantee that she will read them in-between her usual shenanigans. Note: Unlike the previous trivia challenges, I don't know the answers to these questions except for the bonus. Therefore, it's best to send @Pinkie Pie any questions or concerns you may have. Here are your questions. There are eight of them plus a bonus question. Remember that the bonus can be used as a substitute if you get one of the regular ones wrong. 1) What did Pinkie Pie think the tickets to the Grand Galloping Gala were? 2) When do we first meet Gummy? 3) What is the rhyme to find the Mirror Pool? 4) What are most of Pinkie Pie's dreams about? 5) What food does Pinkie Pie save Griffonstone with? 6) How many sweets and spices are in the pie Pinkie Pie makes for Rainbow Dash for her Wonderbolts Training? 7) What did Pinkie Pie want to get Maud for PSSD? 8) Who does Pinkie Pie hit with a pizza in Rock Solid Friendship? Bonus: In the Equestria Girls series, there is a moment where Pinkie Pie imitates a video game character. Who was that character and how did Pinkie imitate them?
  14. Uh-oh! Chestnuts flicks mime tour? Anyone that knows me might know that I am a fan of Jellyvision's series of irreverent trivia games, You Don't Know Jack. One of the question catagories is the Gibberish Question. Basically we take a popular phrase, song title, idiom, what have you, and corrupt it into gibberish. Your job is to figure out what it means. For example: Fart! Held Gerald Hangers fling! (Hark! The Herald Angels Sing) Make your guess and then leave your own flibberkisk nestcomb! Leave a hint too if you feel so inclined. I will start us off: Sock a guy, save me!
  15. In case some of wou missed this, the trivia has started
  16. I got the greenlight to post this! Thanks Admins/mods! Hello, everyone! What I'm about to present to you all is a bit different when it comes to other games. I bring you a pony project I've been working on, something practically new for the fandom to dive into ... via Amazon's Alexa. As Spark A.I. (Spark Artificial Intelligence,) I've been learning to create Alexa skills as a new developer and have made a FiM skill as one of my first projects. My creation is called "World of Equestria." Designed with 2 main parts and 1 surprise: Equestria fact: Alexa randomly chooses a fact to tell. You can listen to just one, or as many as you like. Equestria trivia game: A series of 3 random questions. The goal, get all 3 correct. If you get some wrong, there's a bonus question if you want it. You should be able to play every day and always get a different combination of questions. The hidden surprise: This is my favorite part. Within each step, Alexa will ask if you want to continue. If you answer with something she won't recognize (you can say anything to trigger this hidden part, so go nuts,) Alexa will say randomly crazy pony things in response, then she repeats her original question. World of Equestria is still growing, but the skill is live and ready for everyone to play. I will be adding a lot more facts, trivia questions, and crazy Alexa pony sayings over time. I would like to see if the fandom is interested and wants more. I have the ability to monitor the analytics of my Alexa skills, so I'll know how many people enable and play it. Here are the Amazon links to World of Equestria, currently available in English speaking countries that have the 'kids skill' category. This is completely free to enable and play:  (US) - (UK) - (IN) - (AU) - Anyone owning a device with Alexa will be able to use this skill. For those that don't have an Alexa device, you can download the Alexa App. (Note: Amazon does not have kids skills available in the Canadian Amazon store or any other remaining English speaking countries. Only in the 4 I've listed above. As soon as Amazon expands Kids Skills into more English Speaking countries, I'll be able to launch World of Equestria to those countries as well.) Important Note: I designed this as a kids skill. Amazon has a Verified Parental Consent feature for kids skills in order to operate within the confines of child data protections, like the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Here's what to expect if you haven't enabled kids skills before: To enable a kid skill for the first time, Alexa will ask the customer to give permission in the Alexa app and will guide the customer through the process. To give permission, parents will need to verify their identity using a one-time SMS code sent to the mobile phone number in their Amazon account, or by entering the security code of the credit card in their Amazon account. Alexa will save the parental consent and access to kid skills will not require this verification again. This is normal and is part of Amazon policy to protect kids under the age of 13. I hope you all enjoy my new creation. Let me know what you think of it. And remember, I'll be adding more to this over time. If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see in my World of Equestria Alexa Skill, reply to this thread. Have fun!
  17. It's simple. Just post some random trivia off the top of your head that you find really interesting. Abraham Lincoln used his hat as a carrying case for whatever important papers he needed for the day. Cats have 230 bones in their body.
  18. When Rarity mentioned that she wanted to take weekly trips to the spa, Gloriosa (as Gaea Everfree) got very angry after hearing of it, for it reminded her of Filthy Rich's proposed spa that might have replaced her camp. So it made me wonder: is it that because of what Filthy Rich does, that Gloriosa hates spas, and would never even want to visit one? Or was it just only during her temporary Gaea Everfree-fuelled rage to protect her camp?
  19. Alright, This idea just popped up while I was at a restruant called Buffalo Wild Wings. I'm CRE, Your Trivia host for Interactive My Little Pony Trivia. INSTRUCTIONS: All the questions are based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Seasons 1 and 2. Each question correct is 1 point added to your score. 2 - 8 players can play at the same time. 10 questions per game. Bonus question: If you get it correct, Your points will be doubled. We will start on Thursday at 12:00 PM EST sharp. PLAYERS: 1. NeverNeverland 2. Tyger 3. Finesthour 4. Colton Manestache 5. OceanBreeze 6. Ice 7. Lady Rarity 8. PlasmaStorm
  20. Hello and Welcome to the Random Useless Facts thread! Here is the place to post about the random bits of trivia you know! Examples: Grapes explode when you put them in the microwave. All the swans in England are property of the Queen. All porcupines float in water. Benjamin Franklin was the fifth in a series of the youngest son of the youngest son. Have fun!
  21. Someone once said that you aren't living if you don't learn something new everyday. So I made this thread. If you learned something new today, post it here. All genre's of knowledge welcome here. History, Science, Math, General life lessons, Social stuff, Technical things you learn on the job, 'Street-knowledge', whatever... Feel free to cite the new thing you learned if it's cite-able, and keep discussion to a minimum so the thread doesn't become all about one thing. (you can always take discussions to pm or make a new thread for that) The primary purpose of this thread is to just post something new you learned today and to build a repository of facts n knowledge so others can come to this thread and do the same. Don't get cute and repost something new you learned from this thread Something new I learned today: A dime has 118 ridges around its edge, but a quarter has 119.
  22. Now you may be asking yourself what The Terminator is doing as an entry in my incredibly sporadic horror movie trivia onslaught. You see, I make the argument that The Terminator is very much a slasher flick, very much like other 80s movies about a near-indestructible engine of destruction going on a rampage and racking up an impressive body count until one lone survivor, a lady, is left alone to fight it. The only difference is that instead of knifes and stabbing weapons, there are guns. Lots and lots of guns. That, and it's the movie's 30th anniversary today, and it's one of my favorite movies, and I'm in charge here, so we're doing The Terminator. If you don't like it... - The movie is based on a nightmare director James Cameron had in which a metal torso is crawling away from a fire with a fistful of kitchen knifes. He used this as the basis of a stylish slasher story, which he thought up to be in the same vein as John Carpenter's Halloween. See, I told you. Cameron's agent thought his idea for the film wasn't worth pursuing. Cameron fired his agent. - James Cameron was married to producer Gale Anne Hurd at the time. He sold her the rights to his story for $1. - The original story involved two terminators getting sent back, one a cyborg and one a liquid metal shape-shifter. James Cameron realized that special effects at the time wouldn't come close to what he envisioned for the latter, so the idea of the two terminators was held off for any potential sequel. - OJ Simpson was considered for the role of the Terminator, but James Cameron couldn't see him as a killer. Instead, he wanted actor Lance Henriksen to portray the Terminator, based on the fact that he looked normal, and the Terminator should blend in with a crowd like an infiltrator should. Arnold Schwarzenegger became involved when Orion Pictures wanted him for the role of Kyle Reese. James Cameron absolutely hated the idea, so he schemed to distance Arnold from the project by picking a fight with him during their meeting. But they got along swimmingly, and Cameron was entertained by Arnold's ideas on how the Terminator should be portrayed. After seeing what Arnold's face looked like when he stood still and emotionless, Cameron was convinced the guy would make "a hell of a terminator," regardless of the fact that Arnold is probably the last guy who could blend into a crowd. - Because of Arnold Schwarzenegger's casting, production had to wait while he shot Conan the Destroyer. In the meantime, James Cameron wrote Rambo: First Blood Part 2 and the best frigging movie ever made. - The Terminator was brought to life by the late great Stan Winston. He would go on to help design and give life to the xenomorphs in Aliens, the Predator, Edward Scissorhands's hands, all the physical effects for the T-1000, the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, the Iron Man suits, and many more of the your favorite special effects from the past thirty years or so. - Sarah Connor is suppose to be 19 here. - The producers wanted Kyle Reese to have a robot dog, and at one point it was suggested that the Terminator drink some alcohol and act silly like E.T. - The laser sight on the Terminator's pistol required an external power source, so a battery was rigged up in Arnold Schwarzenegger's sleeve. - Linda Hamilton spent most of the production with a sprained ankle. - The movie originally ended with the tanker exploding, but James Cameron found this to not be hardcore enough. It was also written into the script that the Terminator gains a limp right before his skin gets burned off so it'd be easier to animate the endoskelton and make it look like it had the same range of motion as before it got toasted. - Arnold Schwarzenegger trained with firearms for three months before shooting began, to the point that he was almost robotic in his movements. It paid off: the use of guns in this movie earned praise for being far more realistic than other action movies at the time. - The Terminator glowing eye piece that Arnold Schwarzenegger had to wear later in the movie burned him whenever it was on. - The set was tense most of the time. Arnold Schwarzenegger was not enjoying himself, almost every action scene took place at night, leading to a very to-the-minute production, and James Cameron was easily irritated by people who came to him with ideas he didn't like. - Total body count of 28. - The car chases were filmed at normal speed and sped up in post. - Oh hai Bill Paxon. - Brad Fidel's musical score was made to sound like the heartbeat of a mechanical man. - The teaser trailer is narrated by Peter Cullen, aka Optimus Prime. - Writer Harlan Ellison swore this movie was a rip off of an Outer Limits episode he wrote and proceeded to squeze some money from Orion Pictures, while James Cameron proceeded to call him, and I quote, "a parasite who can kiss [Cameron's] ass." - If you haven't gathered by now, there is a very real chance you will be murdered by James Cameron. -There's a reason Kyle Reese starts making pipe bombs out of nowhere. A deleted scene has Sarah Connor and Reese decide to destroy Cyberdyne Systems before it can unleash Skynet on the world, another idea held off for a potential sequel. But what are the odds of that happening?! - The Terminator is the only film character to appear both the American Film Institute's Top 50 Villains list and their Top 50 Heroes list. - Arnold Schwarzenegger wanted the line changed to "I will be back" because it was easier for him to say in his accent. James Cameron refused, and, well, y'know... Happy 30th Anniversary, The Terminator.
  23. A dang fine slasher movie, this is, even if its sequels decided to become the dumb movies the original was making fun of. Beware of spoilers. - Wes Craven wasn't planing on making another violent horror film, but his fans kept asking him to do something like The Hills Have Eyes again. - The Ghostface Killer's mask is based off the Edvard Munch painting The Scream, but it wasn't designed specifically for the movie. It was actually based on a costume that had been in stores since the early 90s that the filmmakers thought looked cool. They were in the process of designing a similar but drastically altered mask before Dimension Films was able to work out a deal with the costume company and use the original design. The cloak was originally envisioned as all white as part of the ghost motif, but it was decided that black looked scarier. - Whenever the killer is on the phone, he is voiced by Roger L. Jackson, otherwise known as the voice of Mojo Jojo. Instead of the filmmakers editing in prerecorded lines, Jackson actually showed up on set and performed his part live with the other actors through a cell phone. The police showed up at one point because they thought a real serial killer was calling people, which makes me wonder why the heck the police were listening to the phone calls in the first place. - Though she was the top-billed star, it was Drew Barrymore that suggested she be cast as the character who doesn't make it past the first twenty minutes. In order to stay consistently frazzled throughout the shoot, Wes Craven told her stories of animal abuse so she'd cry. - The killer's knife is based off the Buck 120 Hunting Knife, which has been discontinued after customers complained that the blade was too big for gutting animals. - The inclusion of a cover of "Don't Fear the Reaper" is an homage to its use in Halloween when Michael Myers is following his future victims in a car. Scream's version plays when Billy sneaks in through Sydney's window to talk to her. - The Most Subtle Reference In Film History, a one act play starring Wes Craven. - Also making an appearance is Linda Blair as the reporter who harasses Sydney outside of the school. - When Billy is stabbed by the umbrella in the finale, actor Skeet Ulrich's scream of pain is real, as the umbrella accidentally hit his chest, which contained metal wiring from his open heart surgery. - The killer ritualistically cleaning his blade after each kill was thought up by stuntman Dane Farewell. - Casey saying the only good Nightmare of Elm Street was the first one was a very deliberate jab by Wes Craven. - David Arquette took on the movie because he thought Dewey was gonna be the heroic, handsome type. He was supposed to die at the end, but the positive test audience reaction to the character saved him. - Matthew Lillard, the man who was born to be Shaggy, improvised quite a bit in the movie. His reaction to the phone accidentally being dropped on him in the climax was kept in the movie due to its realism/hilarity. - The principal got axed because the movie was going too long without a death. - Actor Kevin Patrick Walls went out for the role of Billy, but he didn't get it, of course. To make up for it, he got to play Casey's unlucky boyfriend in the opening. - The high school originally picked for the film called off the shooting at the last minute when they found out Scream was a horror film, much to the annoyance of the producers. The end credits thus state "NO THANKS WHATSOEVER TO THE SANTA ROSA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT GOVERNING BOARD." - That's Wes Craven under the mask when the killer grabs Casey through the window and receives a face-full of phone. - Jamie Kennedy has the same first name as Jamie Lee Curtis, which makes this funnier: - Despite playing the older character, David Arquette is actually younger than many of the actors playing teenagers. - If you pay attention to some background details in the final act of the movie, it's actually hinted at who the killer is before the reveal. When running from the killer throughout the house, Sydney ends up quickly running through Stu's room, which is adorned with very creepy, serial killer-friendly memorabilia. - The movie was release around Christmas time because no there film appealing to horror fans was out at the time. It opened at #4 at the box office, but word of mouth brought it up to #1 in the next few weeks. - The use of caller ID trippled after Scream came out. No, you don't. Trust me.
  24. Y'know, for a horror movie where the monster could easily be defeated if you kicked him hard enough across the room, the original Child's Play ain't half bad. Not a masterpiece by any standards, but it's good fun. Take a seat, Annabelle. - Originally named "Batteries Not Included", but changed when it was found out Steven Spielberg was producing a movie with the same name. - Child's Play was originally meant to be a satire of marketing aimed at children before it became a horror flick. In the story's original form, Chucky was named Buddy and was not possessed by a psychopath's soul, and was instead a projection of Andy's frustration and loneliness and went after Andy's "enemies," such as his teachers and babysitter. So it's like E.T., but better. - Chucky's real name, Charles Lee Ray, is a reference to serial killers Charles Manson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray. - Chucky was designed by Kevin Yagher, who also designed the Crypt Keeper tweaked Freddy Kruger for Freddy's Revenge and more or less solidified the classic look of that character. - Brad Dourif, the voice of Chucky, ran around the recording studio before every take to give the performance a frantic edge. This resulted in him nearly passing on one or two occasions. - The original film caused quite a stir when it was released, with protesters at MGM Studios claiming it would incite violence in children. United Artists ended up disowning the movie when it was in talks to be bought out by a studio unwilling to make horror movies, and the sequel rights went to Universal. - A copy of Child's Play 2 sits on Jerry's shelf on Seinfeld. - Peter Jackson was asked to direct Child's Play 3. - At some point, Chucky loses his right hand in each of the first three movies. - The opening scene in Bride of Chucky features cameos from Jason Vorhees's and Michael Myers's masks, Freddy Krueger's glove, Leatherface's chainsaw, the Puppetmaster's puppets, and the crate from Creepshow. - The doll sex scene in Bride was improvised. How could you not love that movie? - Because Seed of Chucky was so outside of the type of movie Focus Features usually released, they creaked Rouge Pictures just to release this movie. The last movie they released was Movie 43. Guess that explains where they went. - Glen/Genda is voiced by Billy Boyd aka Freaking Pippin the hobbit. That's not a fun fact or anything, I just think that's really funny. - If you ever get the chance, check out the latest movie, Curse of Chucky. It's surprisingly good, best one since the first. Oh god no.
  25. This one is exceedingly overdue, but today we come to the modern masterpiece from the Mexican maestro's mind, Pan's Labyrinth. I was actually questioning whether this film could be counted as a horror film or if it was just fantasy of the darker variety. Never mind. - Guillermo del Toro keeps a large collection of notes and sketches that he uses to generate ideas and stories for his films. The notes on Pan's Labyrinth were once lost in the backseat of a British cab. Del Toro was afraid he lost them forever, but the cab driver sought him out just to return the notes. Del Toro took this as a sign that this movie had to be made; he turned down working on The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and gave up his salary to make sure it happened. But when offered Hollywood backing, del Toro refused, not wanting his vision to be compromised. - Intended as an informal sequel to The Devil's Backbone. Originally about a pregnant woman that falls in love with a faun. - The faun in question isn't actually the Pan of Greek mythology, who is known for his sexual escapades and is wholly inappropriate to feature opposite a little girl. That's just the American title; everywhere else in the world, the film is called The Labyrinth of the Faun. - The actor under the Faun and Pale Man makeup is Doug Jones, who you may not recognize as Billy the Zombie from Hocus Pocus, Abe Sapien from the Hellboy movies, and the leader of the Gentlemen from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. A native of Indianapolis, Jones was the only person on set who did not speak Spanish and had to learn the language for the role of the Faun. He was later dubbed over, but Jone's efforts made it so the lip-synch was near perfect. - An actor was almost killed when a horse fell on top of him. - Ofelia was meant to be played by a younger actress, but Ivana Baquero impressed del Toro enough that he slightly rewrote the part to fit the casting. Del Toro sent comic books to Baquero to read so she could get in the right head space. - The Pale Man's saggy skin was inspired by del Toro's recent weight loss. - The captain's quarters were designed to look like the inside of his watch. - There was originally to be a sequence in which Ofelia tells a fairy tale involving a dragon, which of course would had been visualized, but it had to be cut due to budgetary reasons. - The English subtitles were written by del Toro himself, who was not satisfied with the translations of his previous works. - Doug Jones reportedly kept condoms full of fake blood in his mouth for the bit where the Pale Man has a snack. - The Faun's horns weighed ten pounds and were tiring to wear after awhile. - Movie theaters had to put up a warning after people kept taking their kids to see the movie about the little girl who escapes the horrors of fascism and war only to find a monster that tries to eat her alive and a pissy faun. - Stephen King attended a private screening, during which del Toro notice him squirm in his seat during the Pale Man sequence. - Received a 22 minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. - Hug? Hug.
