ORIGINAL POST & CONTEST RULES, 1/10

 

It's that time again, friends...time for the third edition of one of the most exciting forum contests we've EVER had, the Most Attractive Pony Tournament! The first MAPT was a smashing success where background pony Lyra Heartstrings beat out four Mane Six to win it all. In the second one, nearly 300 members voted in the final round to make Rarity the champion. I participated enthusiastically in both tourneys, so when the original host Rudy Schmurda (AKA Toshio Ozaki, AKA Alfonzo Dennard) offered me the opportunity to host a new one, I jumped at it.

 

The makeup of the tournament is evolving with the show. The first one in 2013 featured a handful of main characters and a lot of background ponies. But with the show introducing so many new characters and MERCY bringing in the princesses in 2015, deciding which mares to include here was a real challenge--and it means we'll have to make some tough choices very early in the competition.

 

Or rather, you will. As the host, I will not be casting any votes, nor advocating any mare over another. That's right: for once, Tails is out of the running!   ^_^

 

Now, on to the rules! Like the first two MAPTs, this tournament is modeled after the NFL playoffs: 32 female ponies are split into two conferences with four divisions each. The 12 ponies with the most votes (8 division winners and 4 wild cards) will advance to the playoffs and that head-to-head competition these tourneys are so well known for.  ;)  

Remember: the votes are everything. Bronies like us can generate more votes for our favorite ponies by spreading the word and posting pictures to sway undecided voters. It's part forum debate, part political campaign, and all fun!

 

Remember: keep it friendly. This tournament is about healthy competition and respect for all ponies and their fans, and as always on this site, let's keep all posts and pictures SFW. Now to introduce the 32 ponies who made the cut this year! Pictures are included so you can view them all side by side.

 

 

EQUESTRIAN FRIENDSHIP CONFERENCE

 


 

EFC East

 


Octavia


post-8228-0-32168900-1452461047_thumb.png

This beautiful cellist has twice qualified for the playoffs...and twice been defeated by Fluttershy. Will history repeat itself, or is her greatest performance yet to come?


 

Derpy Hooves


post-8228-0-47557700-1452461155_thumb.png

Insert joke about lazy eye. Insert joke about muffins. Insert 4-year-old fandom argument about her voice. Or, if you prefer, just insert your vote!


 

Twilight Sparkle


post-8228-0-99511000-1452461333_thumb.png

The mane character is back, and after twice falling short of the Magic Bowl, she's starving for a championship! (And some hayburgers.)


 

Photo Finish


post-8228-0-73815200-1452461390_thumb.png

She can make 'da magicks', but does she have magic within her? We'll find out as Photo emerges from behind the camera and onto the runway.



 

EFC West

 


Moon Dancer


post-8228-0-73547500-1452461424_thumb.png

From the shadows of the past comes a pony all too real, and determined to steal the "adorkable" mantle away from her friend Twilight Sparkle.


 

Coco Pommel


post-8228-0-09357200-1452461441_thumb.png

Perhaps inspired by her friend Rarity's victory last year, another attractive designer enters the fray...


 

Cheerilee


post-8228-0-68191500-1452461461_thumb.png

She may be a schoolteacher, but as yet she's taught us nothing about success in the playoffs. But don't give up, Cheerilee fans: the quest for knowledge never ends.


 

Lyra Heartstrings


post-8228-0-82418100-1452461511_thumb.png

The first Magic Bowl champion is back--as attractive, eccentric, and deliciously minty as ever.



 

EFC North

 


Princess Luna


post-8228-0-84792500-1452461533_thumb.png

The former conference champion finished just 8 votes behind Rarity in Magic Bowl II. Will the lost dream continue to haunt her, or will she forge a new beginning?


 

Sunset Shimmer


post-8228-0-30149100-1452461567_thumb.png

She's not a villain anymore, but this pony still means business in any popularity contest.


 

Roseluck


post-8228-0-41968000-1452461653_thumb.png

Cute background ponies with a dream are at the roots of this tournament, and Ponyville's florist knows all about that!


 

Fluttershy


post-8228-0-88091100-1452461681_thumb.png

This pony's incredible cuteness has taken her far in both MAPTs...and in both, she has fallen to the eventual winner. Is her third time the charm?



 

EFC South

 


Rainbow Dash


post-8228-0-45207700-1452461711_thumb.png

Is there any pony more ironically cute than our little Dashie? And on the other hoof, is there any pony who has had more disappointing finishes in her playoff games? Let's see if the most awesome thing on four legs can turn it around.


 

Button Mash's Mom


post-8228-0-19820100-1452461732_thumb.png

MLP Comics fans are unanimous: Button's mom has got it going on! How far can she go here? We're about to find out.


 

Vinyl Scratch


post-8228-0-71153900-1452461830_thumb.png

She made the playoffs in 2013, but is this former top ten hit now an oldie?


 

Nurse Redheart


post-8228-0-40526600-1452461871_thumb.png

I could make several crude jokes about this pony's "bedside manner," or how "she can take care of me anytime." Or I could just say that nurses in any form are hot and leave it at that.



 


 

 

 

PONY FRIENDSHIP CONFERENCE

 


 

PFC East

 


Cloud Chaser


post-8228-0-97189700-1452461967_thumb.png

She's got some nice moves and a rad manestyle, and she's looking for more than a wildcard spot this time.


 

Bon Bon


post-8228-0-61694200-1452461983_thumb.png

Lyra's best friend looks to make this year's tourney a whole lot sweeter--at least for her!


 

Rarity


post-8228-0-24832000-1452462009_thumb.png

The defending Magic Bowl Champion can't rest on her laurels, and chances are she won't. The only thing as good as winning it all is going back and winning it all again.


 

Princess Cadence


post-8228-0-55377500-1452462029_thumb.png

The most misspelled princess in Equestria returns for another MAPT. Will she have some tougher love for us this time around?



 

PFC West

 


Trixie


post-8228-0-96322000-1452462102_thumb.png

Always an apprentice, never a sorcerer. The notorious showpony is back and looking for her first playoff win.


 

Pinkie Pie


post-8228-0-17736800-1452462126_thumb.png

The party pony has yet to advance in the playoffs, but look out! Not unlike a cupcake with hot sauce, she's bound to come back up sooner or later.


 

Countess Coloratura


post-8228-0-06232500-1452462158_thumb.png

The famous pop singer trades one stage for another as she pits her distinctive beauty against that of 31 other ponies.


 

Night Glider


post-8228-0-19104800-1452462181_thumb.png

She's re-Marked and ready to fly! Will this dark horse be the next breakout player in the PFC?



 

PFC North

 


Spitfire


post-8228-0-57645300-1452462275_thumb.png

She may be the most attractive Wonderbolt, but the orange-haired bombshell has encountered her share of turbulence in this game.


 

Twilight Velvet


post-8228-0-04454100-1452462302_thumb.png

All bets are off this year as even Twilight's mom jumps in! Former cactus, rumored author...future Most Attractive Pony?


 

Princess Celestia


post-8228-0-57988200-1452462321_thumb.png

The enigmatic ruler of Equestria went one and done last year. But remember, the sun also rises...


 

Starlight Glimmer


post-8228-0-46938000-1452462340_thumb.png

As both a Cutie Mark-stealing villain and a redeemed hero, Starlight is an absolute knockout and a welcome addition to this year's contest.



 

PFC South

 


Daring Do


post-8228-0-59162800-1452462412_thumb.png

Real or fictional? Tough or just mean? Does her flyer's license say A.K. Yearling or Daring Do? The new mysteries surrounding this gutsy explorer only make her more intriguing...


 

Flitter


post-8228-0-76302100-1452462426_thumb.png

Often overshadowed by her more successful sister, this pegasus is looking to strike out on her own.


 

Maud Pie


post-8228-0-00426800-1452462444_thumb.png

This division may be a rocky road for Pinkie Pie's unintentionally beautiful sister. Fortunately, that's just the way she likes it.


 

Applejack


post-8228-0-91535400-1452462458_thumb.png

There's only one way to buck an apple tree: start from the bottom. And despite her previous successes, that's just what this farmpony-next-door is going to do.



 


 

There you have it. Using the polls above, vote for the ponies you think are the prettiest, cutest, sexiest, however you care to look at it--and remember to cast a vote in every division. I'll update the standings every few days to show who our division leaders are as the round goes on. Let's make this another awesome contest!

Wait.. Buttons mom? She's not even canon, is she?

 

Anyway, I don't know who she is because I've not seen s5 yet but Moon Dancer looks nerdy and that's ....a good thing. Go Moon Dancer!!

Oh Celestia Damn it! You put Sunset Shimmer, Princesses Luna and Fluttershy into one group! Fuck those are my top three right there!  :angry: *

 

Plus side they are in the EFC North so Roseluck is the Lions then, I guess . 

 

*Poe's law,not actually too upset at this, but a little miffed.

Noticed this last year too, but this isn't so much about the most attractive pony, but more so who is best pony. Regardless one shall fit both categories:

Anyway I'm pitching my votes for all the princesses, Lyra, Redheart, Pinkie Pie, and Flitter.

Not a moment of hesitation to be had in each division, though it seems only three of my eight are in the lead. 

 

And Commissar has the right of it, I believe, though I shall keep my eye on this and campaign as needed.

I'm rooting for my favorite pony, Dashie, although I won't be too distraught if she loses. Because honestly, beauty is only skin-deep, it's her personality that I fell in love with.

 

On my list of favorites are Lyra, Luna, Spitfire, Cloudchaser, Flitter, and Trixie.

 

And, sorry Derpy and Octie... love ya both, but Twi is so much cuter.

Hmm, I'm surprised Twilight Velvet only has a single vote, if Celestia wasn't in the same running she would have my vote. Rarity fan base seems to have increased as well since last year, I mean going up against Cadance and still a mile ahead. Anyway this tie between Sunset Shimmer and Luna needs to be broken, hopefully in favor of Luna :)

Megas, ShadOBabe! Good to see you guys again. I've been away for months but suddenly I thought "hey, isn't it time for another M.A.P. Tournament?" And when I didn't see one, I asked Toshio about it and one thing led to another. Presiding over the madnesss should be an interesting change...as opposed to the first two tourneys, when I was one of the inmates.  :D

You're right, Commissar. I think the board itself is changing as well. Rarity's got a much bigger fanbase than she did 3 years ago. Vinyl and Cloud Chaser made the playoffs in '13 but are on shakier ground here. And poor Pinkie is trailing in her own division...that's the Trixie effect for you, but I had no idea Coloratura was this popular.

 

Some things have stayed the same though: Twilight and Luna are still well loved, no matter who their competition is!
