Are the Mane Six Doubles in FIM game on purpose/have meaning?!


Recommended Posts

There's something I want to discuss and I've thought carefully about where to stick this,but feel free to stick this wherever you think it's more appropriate... Thank you.

 

Now...

I have noticed something recently, in fact, the idea came to me just now. I have mentioned in a status post update here a while back that I've been playing this MLP game on my tablet and I said that I noticed that Lovestruck (Spells ROSELUCK if you scramble the letters) looks like Twilight Sparkle. She is a white or cream unicorn mare the color of her coat seems like Bonbon's coat, not quite white. Only Rarity dresses in the purest white... And Sweetie Belle, and Fleur De Liese... Anyway, okay so there is a lot of white or cream colored ponies I'm getting off track here...

 

Lovestruck, has red mane and tail, but the mane is styled in the same hairstyle Twilight sports. Which was my only clue that she was like Twilight or that was a design or it is merely coincidence. Now, if that is true, let's cut to just a few moments ago when I noticed that it's happening again. This time with another pony. You can't possibly say that it is mere coincidence if I see it more, wth various ponies looking suspiciously like The Mane Six. This new pony, which I had ignored until just a few moments ago. She's a dark shade of purple with a grayish hue perhaps? She has pale green mane and tail and is also unicorn and her name is Forsythia and I guess she's a musical pony, because she was in the sub category of Musical Ponies in the game menu. Anyway, her look struck me as eerily similar to Rarity. I know them curls anywhere. That's Rarity's mane curls exactly. Though her tail is also curled into a wavy twist her tail is shorter than Rarity's...

 

This topic makes me think of this when I'd noticed in the show that it too has a few instances of Pony doppelgängers on the show for whatever reason... Some had purpose. Like how Daring Do is a recolored Rainbow Dash to maybe give Dashie a vector she can put herself into her favorite story. I have heard of putting yourself into the character... or how Sleetfoot is a copy design of Spitfire but that just might be one of those mere coincidences... or how most recently, with Moondancer in Amending Fences from Season 5. She too was looking also like Twilight Sparkle. People drew the conclusion. That that design choice had more intent with the choice of design. Moondancer was for Twilight a mirrored image to signify that Twilight could have been here. Shut away friendless and bookworms. So back to the subject at hoof.

 

Many games are plagued with similar designed characters or sprites. That's the technology. But this game the characters are tailored to the smallest detail to the show. Right down to getting the Mane Six cast voices for the game. So uh, I guess I'll finish this up here. If you stop by to comment of place topic elsewhere that you felt it belonged more. I'd love to get your thoughts on this. Let me know what every pony thinks about this. Good Night. Superbrony signing out.

@@SuperBrony87, as your topic had more to do with the video game than the show itself, I moved it to Sugarcube Corner. Also, I changed your title to reflect that and to spark discussion!

 

Thanks! :D

Well, ponies like Lovestruck are toy only at the moment, and some of them are added in the game. Thing is, these toy exclusive ponies are usually palette swap of others, Mane6 included. I think Blossomfort was a palette swap of a Mane6 before she was added to the show :huh:

Thanks for doing that for me @PiratePony. I was actually thinking of going to Sugar Cube Corner first... I rethought it for Show Discussion because it had some elements of the show. I think Sugar Cube was about pony talk that was not involved with the show. So I went to Show Discussion. Which was why I said "If you know a more appropriate place for this then move it to wherever you see fit." I really should think those over more before posting, sometimes I just don't know.

 

In reference to Steve Pirhana. The fact that I haven't noticed a Lovestruck in the show to my understanding. I do know of ROSELUCK who has a rose cutie mark and she is cream and red. However I have yet to see this Forsythia pony in the show too. The one I said looked like Rarity from her wavy hair swooped exactly like Rarity, to her swirly tail. Palette swapped. That's a word I should have used before I was just thinking of color which is what palettes are, yeah.

 

Ya know there is this small issue in closing close this comment. Fluttershy's game sprite's mouth is not colored in right, so it's same as her coat and you can't tell quite right if her mouth is open. I know when it is open her mouth is just colored like her body. Every pony else has their mouths showing except Fluttershy's. I'd love an explanation on that Gameloft. That's the engine MLP the game, from Gameloft.

Blossomfort, who's that... Also which of the mane 6 are you saying?

Is the white with mint and red colored maned pegasis who stretched too much in Hurricane Fluttershy, but I don't remember which Mane6 she was palette swapped in the toys

A lot of toy-exclusive ponies are just recolored versions of the Mane 6. This was happening even before the game was released. I don't think there's any special reason behind it other than to save time coming up with new vectors for ponies that aren't in the show. Much of the blind bag cards are the same way. It doesn't mean anything.
