Ponies

Development

Scootaloo is based on the Generation 3 Earth pony of the same name, who has a pink and purple mane and tail (occasionally ponytails in the Core 7 serials) and a butterfly cutie mark. However, her color scheme is based on that of Sparkleworks, another Generation 3 Earth pony. Scootaloo is also Cheerilee’s younger sister in Generation 3; in Generation 4, Scootaloo and Cheerilee have no indicated familial relationship, and Cheerilee has a twin sister named .

Scootaloo’s cutie mark in and is the same as her G3/G3.5 counterpart’s, and was chosen by layout artist prior to her work on the show.

According to Lauren Faust, Scootaloo was «originally conceived as getting in a lot of schoolyard fights over being picked on for not flying.»

In a mid-May 2017 Twitter conversation, Jim Miller stated that the CMCs’ Flash rigs are the same as S1.

Depiction in the series

Season two

Peewee first appears in the season two episode Dragon Quest. Spike and a group of teenage dragons, led by Garble, go on a «dragon raid» with the intent of destroying a nest of phoenix eggs. However, they find that most of the eggs have already hatched, except for one. After the two adult phoenixes and their hatched chicks give Garble and the other teenagers the slip, Spike finds the unhatched egg.

Garble and his friends tell Spike to smash the egg, but Spike refuses and instead protects it from the other dragons. Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity appear to defend Spike, and Twilight teleports all of them away to safety. Spike keeps the unhatched phoenix egg, and when the phoenix inside hatches, he names him Peewee—appropriating a nickname the teenage dragons gave Spike—and welcomes him to the family.

Season three

At the beginning of the season three episode Just for Sidekicks, a gallery of photos on a shelf depicts Spike looking after Peewee. One picture depicts Spike sharing some ice cream with him, and another depicts the carton ending up on Twilight’s head, covering her in ice cream. The final picture shows Spike returning Peewee to his parents.

Season eight

In Molt Down, Spike and Rarity visit the phoenix nests (Spike to see Peewee, Rarity to pick up some phoenix feathers for her latest design), where they find that Peewee has grown into a matured phoenix and moved into his own nest. Spike tries to greet Peewee with a hug, but their close contact irritates the stone scale on Spike’s cheek, causing Spike to jump away in pain.

Chapter books

In chapter 11 of Discord and the Ponyville Players Dramarama, Torch Song of the Pony Tones mentions the Pony of Shadows.

My Little Pony (mobile game)

Stygian, the Pony of Shadows, and The Dark Horse are characters in Gameloft’s mobile game. The Pony of Shadows is the boss of the «Shadow Play» event and a boss during the «Nightmare Night at the Museum» event, while The Dark Horse is a boss battle helper in the «Nightmare Knights» event. Stygian’s bio states, «No one expected that Stygian—the bookish young stallion who founded the Pillars of Equestria—could be a vessel for the Power of Shadows…but expectations are often misleading.» The Pony of Shadows’ bio states, «Once believed to be merely a story to frighten young foals, the Pony of Shadows is all too real…and a major threat to Equestria.» The Dark Horse’s bio states, «He is the hoofbeat from under the floorboards! He is the shadow in the empty stable! He is…DEFINITELY not just Stygian in disguise!»

Nomenclature

The term «My Little Pony» – and more often «My Little Ponies» – is used a few times in the show, such as by Twilight Sparkle in The Show Stoppers, Princess Celestia, Cheerilee, and Discord in The Return of Harmony Part 1, and Pinkie Pie in Fall Weather Friends, always in conversations concerning at least one pony. «Foals» is used in a few different contexts in the show, and «colt» and «filly» are used to refer to young ponies too, while «baby ponies» is used to refer to the youngest ponies. Apart from the above terms, others are sometimes employed: Trixie boasts in Boast Busters that she is destined to be «the greatest equine who has ever lived»; Sapphire Shores mentions «Clothes Horse magazine» in A Dog and Pony Show; and Braeburn refers to other ponies as «horses» in Over a Barrel. In The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000, Flam states that «Any horse can make a claim and any pony can do the same.» In Flight to the Finish, Scootaloo precedes a song by saying about her and her friends «we may just be little ponies, but we have hearts as strong as horses

Пони[править]

На этот раздел есть перенаправления: ,  ().

Пони — основное население Эквестрии, страны, располагающейся на аналоге Северной Америки. Из всех существ пони-вселенной именно у пони богатое разнообразие цветов и метки на боках (возможно, они ещё есть у зебр). Из всех цивилизованных видов только пони обладают и технологиями, и магией. Раса пони делится на несколько субрас, однако они могут скрещиваться и иногда трансформироваться друг в друга. Между субрасами пони заметно некоторое разделение труда, однако мультсериал не углубляется в тонкости общественного устройства и показывает разных пони на любых общественных ролях.

Земные пониправить

Основная статья: Земные пони

Земные пони — самые крепкие, упорные и работящие. Они составляют опору общества пони, трудясь на фермах, занимаясь извозом и берясь за самые тяжёлые работы. Учитывая, что в мире пони (или во всяком случае в Эквестрии) без вмешательства пони не встаёт солнце, не сменяются времена года и не растут деревья, земным пони достаётся множество необычных задач, например, выращивание камней на фермах камней.

Пони-единорогиправить

Основная статья: Единороги (MLP)

Единороги — основные носители магии в обществе пони. Каждый специализируется в нескольких заклинаниях, подобающих его призванию. Очень многие единороги владеют левитацией, благодаря чему им легче заниматься изящной деятельностью — шитьём, декором, науками. Также единороги заняты в работах, которые связаны с их магией: например, специалист по защитным барьерам Шайнинг Армор занимается магической обороной Кантерлота.

Пони-пегасыправить

Основная статья: Пегасы (MLP)

Основное занятие пегасов — создание погоды: наступление и рассеивание дождей, смена времён года. Пегасы могут ходить по облакам как по твёрдой земле, и многие общины пегасов целиком базируются в облачных городах. К таким городам относится Клаудсдейл.

Аликорныправить

Основная статья: Аликорны

В мультсериале показано пять аликорнов — принцесса Селестия, принцесса Луна, принцесса Кэденс, с третьего сезона аликорнизацию (процесс превращения пони в аликорна) прошла принцесса Твайлайт Спаркл, а в шестом сезоне у Шайнинга Армора и Каденс родилась дочка Фларри Харт. Остальные случаи, когда на экране появлялись пони с рогом и крыльями, были объявлены ошибками аниматоров. Поскольку все аликорны носят титулы принцесс и занимают высокое, властное положение в Эквестрии, обладают преимуществами и пегасов, и единорогов (и, согласно субканону, земных пони тоже), а также могущественней всех обычных пони, то они, вероятнее всего, являются элитой общества пони. На примере Твайлайт показано, что аликорном может стать пони из другой субрасы, но при строгих условиях.

Бэтпониправить

Основная статья: Бэтпони

Эти существа имеют анатомию пегаса, но обладают рядом особенностей: тусклая шерсть, заострённые зубы, перепончатые, как у летучей мыши, крылья, вертикальные зрачки. Грива и хвост предположительно всегда синего цвета, что неизвестно наверняка — часто появляются в плотных доспехах и шлемах.

При первом появлении их никак не назвали, и брони-сообщество окрестило этих созданий ночными стражами, поскольку до финала 5-го сезона появились только два таких персонажа — в страже принцессы Луны. Позже в субканоне они были названы бэтпони. В русскоязычном сообществе популярно название «фестралы».

Кристальные пониправить

Основная статья: Кристальные пони

Кристальные пони живут в Кристальной империи. Хотя другие пони на время пребывания в ней тоже начинают выглядеть кристально, сами уроженцы Кристальной империи остаются таковыми в любых краях. Внешность кристальных пони зависит от бодрости их духа: унылые, они становятся серыми, а будучи уверенными в себе — обретают яркие цвета. Это вопрос не настроения, а постоянно окружающей атмосферы. Кристальные пони живут преимущественно в своём регионе, которым управляет принцесса Кэденс, однако иногда появляются в фоне разных сцен Эквестрии.

Ченджлинги (Оборотни)править

Основная статья: Ченджлинги

Ченджлинги скорее всего не являются пони, однако принимают вид пони и в своём естественном облике имитируют телосложение именно пони, а не коней или других копытных. Королева Кризалис даже имитирует аликорна. Хотя ченджлинги выступали исключительно как враги в одном двухсерийнике, фанаты тепло восприняли их образ, выработали целую культуру этой расы и создали немало произведений о жизни ченджлингов среди пони.

Three pony types

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic divides ponies into three main «types» in the first episode: Earth ponies, Pegasi, and unicorns. These are called the «three pony tribes» in the episode Hearth’s Warming Eve. The storybook Under The Sparkling Sea adds seaponies, and previous My Little Pony generations included flutter ponies and breezies as well as sea ponies. Most, however, are absent from the Friendship is Magic series. The division into three types led the show’s developer, Lauren Faust, to initially give them equal representation in the show’s main cast and the Cutie Mark Crusaders. The powers of the Alicorns draws equally from the three types, according to the book .

Earth ponies

Main article: Earth ponies
See also: List of ponies/Earth ponies

Apple Cobbler, an Earth pony, in A Bird in the Hoof.

Earth ponies have no wings or unicorn horn, and therefore most closely resemble real ponies. They are the kind first introduced by the My Little Pony brand. The chapter book Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell mentions that one special trait is «the strength of a good, true heart of an Earth Pony.» The of the show My Little Pony Friendship is Magic features two Earth ponies: Applejack and Pinkie Pie.

Pegasi

Main article: Pegasi
See also: List of ponies/Pegasus ponies

Rainbowshine, a Pegasus pony, in Sonic Rainboom.

Pegasi, or «Pegasus ponies«, are ponies with wings and flight abilities – in the fashion of the legendary Pegasus. The term «Pegasi» is used in the episodes Sonic Rainboom and The Return of Harmony Part 1, and «Pegasus ponies» is used in the episodes Look Before You Sleep and Sonic Rainboom. When referring to a single pony, «Pegasus» is almost always used, with the exception of one «Pegasus pony» in Friendship is Magic, part 1. Pegasi can usually fly and . The main cast of the show features two Pegasi: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy.

Luna’s guards pulling her carriage

Two Pegasus royal guard ponies pull Princess Luna’s chariot in Luna Eclipsed. The guards have tufted ears, bat-like webbed wings, non-hairy tail and crest, and wear dark purple armor. Princess Luna and the Festival of the Winter Moon identifies these Pegasi as «bat ponies». Other Pegasi with similar attributes, including Rainbow Dash, appear in an alternate timeline in The Cutie Re-Mark — Part 2.

Unicorns

Main article: Unicorns
See also: List of ponies/Unicorn ponies

Lyra Heartstrings, a unicorn pony, in Friendship is Magic, part 1.

Unicorns are characterized by a magical horn on their foreheads, and they usually have magical abilities. The show’s main cast initially features two unicorns: Rarity and Twilight Sparkle, but Twilight gains wings in the finale Magical Mystery Cure.
