Top 5 Side Characters Of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
The latest version of the My Little Pony series, called Friendship is Magic, is entering it’s ninth and final season. During that time, it has made a lot of fans with its mix of colorful characters and well thought out plots and stories. What better way to celebrate it before it comes to an end than to list the Top 5 Side Characters of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
My Little Pony Side Characters #5 – Gummy
The toothless alligator pet of Pinkie Pie, most of his appearances are mashing around a pony and not much else. Although he has appeared in many episodes of the show, his greatest moment came in the 100th episode in giving a thoughtful soliloquy about what it all means. Of course, it wasn’t out loud and only the viewers could hear it. Not the loudest character but a thoughtful one.
My Little Pony Side Characters #4 – Bon-Bon and Lyra
Two background ponies often seen together, so the fans of the show took to it and made them best friends. The writers of the show took advantage of that and often put them together in the background of shows even more. Then in Episode 100, Bon-Bon revealed the whole truth, namely, she was actually a special agent and her name was actually Sweetie Drops. Despite the issue, they are still friends.
My Little Pony Side Characters #3 – Octavia
A pony often seen with a cello and playing some music. Fans have made the character proper and high society, along with being friends with Vinyl Scratch. The writers of the series picked up the idea and put the two together in a few appearances in the series.
#2 – Vinyl Scratch
A pony also known as DJ Pon-3. This pony is silent in her appearances but is the master DJ and spins vinyl records to make wonderful music. Although she has few appearances in the show itself, she has been shown to not only be musically gifted, but helpful and caring as well. To the fans of the show, she is often voiced by amateur voice actor Jesse Nowack and is often shown as a wild person in contrast to her friend, the classically taught Octavia.
#1 – Derpy Hooves
A favorite of fans since she appeared in the background of the first episode with offset eyes. She appeared sporadically before series creator Lauren Faust discovered her existence and she was written more as a fan favorite. She caused a big sensation when she was allowed to speak in an episode and called by her name for the first time. Show producers have had good and bad moments with the character which have caused her not to be called “Derpy” officially anymore. However, she still appears on the show, often delivering mail through her job with the post office.
