Fine. What's everybody's favourite pony and why?

Ah, this age old question.

Well, I would have to say that Rarity is my favorite pony, though only by a little bit. I really like all of the main six in their own ways, naturally, but something about Rarity makes me like her a bit more than the rest. I think it's due to her generous nature, and how she strives to give people the best, and make them happy, as witnessed very clearly in Suited for Success. While she is pretentious a decent amount of the time, I think her generosity and general care for her friends makes up for that. Plus, her whining, specifically in a Dog and Pony Show was absolutely hilarious, I think it was one of the best moments in the first season.

Is going to a new site that big of a hassle? I mean, I personally think ponychan is a fine place as is, I dunno how well a pony board would go on 4chan.

Welcome back.

Oh and with people constantly asking about why dont we go to 4chan or ponychan etc, we do...but we also like this forum, personally this is my favourite forum, and as such if I want to talk about something I shouldnt have to leave the forum I prefer to do it, its unfair.

Yea my favourite even if I do suit Fluttershy more and Twilight Sparkle more, just something about Rainbow Dash makes her really enjoyable.
Twilight is a great character and I always love everything about her, she is probably my second favourite character.

At first I wasn't a huge fan of Applejack, but she grew on me to be one of my favourite. At first it just seemed like the stereotypical texas person they have in all cartoons but they actually did her really well and made her a character that happened to be texasish rather than that being her defining feature.

Of course we do bahamut, the only bad stuff is the meme spamming and hate spamming, when we actually get the chance to post without those destroying the threads its like any other good thread. Well any other rare thread since its general afterall :p

Basically anyone who posted "MLP is gay" has lost 99% of whatever respect I had for them. It's ok not to like it, but to go out of your way and post something so stupid is as a follow up is retarded.

Same here with Applejack, I also had a similiar story with Rarity. I watched A bird in the hoof first too, so she really just came off as a snobby pretentious prep to me and nothing more, but as I watched the series more, I saw how generous, and well, caring she was to people, plus man, her VA is just fantastic. Specifically Suited for Success, while one of the most girly episodes, is probably one of my favorite. <3 art of the dress.

For me, it was really hard to just pick a favorite, though. Rarity is just by a little bit. Really, they're all good enough to be my favorite.

I've always liked fluttershy. Such a beatifly drawn character and her attitude is just so cute <3

I was really surprised though in dragonshy on how much courage she had. fuck, if i saw that dragon, i would run like hell. "The stare" thing she does is pretty cool but it so dark which makes it better. Her voice is just adorable and her way to communicate with animals. It reminds me i need more fluttershy art in my pony folder.

I wasn't a huge fan of rarity to begin with, but after repeat watchings I did really start to love her. She is the most female of all of them so of course it took longer to get used to her for me, but I am glad I gave her the chance to as she did end up being great. It's still one of my favourite Rarity moments when she complains about not getting the diamond of the Dragon just completely in her own world for a bit forgetting what she was suppose to be doing, adds a lot of fun to her usually generous side :)

For me, it was really hard to just pick a favorite, though. Rarity is just by a little bit. Really, they're all good enough to be my favorite.

Same, I think Rainbow Dash myself, but really i hate picking favourites as they are all good and I don't like making one seem worse than the other, as they are all brilliantly made characters, no crappy ones inside like you might usually find one really bad character no one can like.

She is the cutest of the mane cast, up there with Luna for me with the cutest ponies.

"The stare" thing she does is pretty cool but it so dark which makes it better. Her voice is just adorable and her way to communicate with animals. It reminds me i need more fluttershy art in my pony folder.

It is also kind of inspiring and reminds me of myself with how despite being really shy and scared of things, when her friends were in danger she stood up for them and spoke her mind and did everything she could to protect them, for the element of kindness she really came of as loyalty as well at that moment :) I just love how no matetr how shy she always is, you know inside that if someone does need protecting or caring after she will do whatever she can for them. Thats what I lvoe about the others also. Like Rainbow Dash is arrogant a lot of the time, but when the others need her she is strait there to help even if she ends up worse for wear by doing so, like with defending Fluttershy at the race she saw she was in trouble so went strait there and put herself on the line to stand up for her. The strength of the friendship in the show is really beautiful.

Nah lots of us think Rainbow Dash is a lesbian. I myself like to think it also, she really does come off as that sort of person. I think Lauren said she wasn't, but despite that it's still nice to want to believe it.

Aye, I think we can all agree that Fluttershy is the most adorable thing created in the history of forever.

I was really surprised though in dragonshy on how much courage she had. fuck, if i saw that dragon, i would run like hell. "The stare" thing she does is pretty cool but it so dark which makes it better.

Yeah, I suppose you don't mess with Fluttershy's friends eh?

Speaking of flutterrage, Something that particularly has been bothering me was her outburst in the last episode, did anyone else feel that it was entirely out of character for her? I mean sure she definitely developed during the season, and became less shy, and it was funny, but it just seemed really out of place for her.

I dunno, it just seems that compared to the other characters, they didn't develop her as well, and they're pretty much mainly using her for cute, and comic relief. I hope season 2 has more episodes like Dragonshy that will develop her a bit more, same with Pinkie Pie as well.

Indeed, that was a great moment, but I honestly don't think anything can top her whining in the Diamond Dog episode, it still cracks me up.

Exactly how I feel as well, usually when you're comparing something, you imply one thing is better than the other, and due to that I just can't compare them, as I shouldn't. They're all brilliant, I just happen to like Rarity a bit more than the rest. :)

I'll never understand how people can rank the main six.

I don't really think she's a lesbian, but I wouldn't be surprised if she was bisexual or something. Not that sexual preference matters in a cartoon, so I don't really bother myself with thinking about it.

I agree it really was out of place, kind of shocking when she yells. I do like it though, as it shows that even for a character as cute and kind and innocent as Fluttershy, no one is perfect all of the time. Showing this side of her for just a moment when she gets completely worked up by no animals loving her which she had spent her life around, its not to hard to see why she ended up getting into a rage over it, even with her being as shy as she is. Shy people usually can come out in rages if something big like that is the cause. I am a perfect example sadly to say.
I think it actually makes me enjoy her even more, as the fact that it shows she has this side to her makes her seem more like a normal person, same with how all the characters have their moments like Pinkie Pie loosing her mind and Rainbow Dash freaking out and Twilight getting really worked up, Rarity going into a sort of...cant think of the word but you know when her dress making falls apart and she locks herslef in her room, and Applejack with her becoming obsessed with doing things alone. These small moments i nthe show make all the characters seem more real, it shows they arent just a flat face and that they really do have personality and their character develops etc, if not always in a good way.

I dunno, it just seems that compared to the other characters, they didn't develop her as well, and they're pretty much mainly using her for cute, and comic relief. I hope season 2 has more episodes like Dragonshy that will develop her a bit more, same with Pinkie Pie as well.

I would love more also.

I perfectly understand this, I've done it too when I was a more introvert person. :P

I've actually never thought of it that way, but you are right, everyone has their fits of rage sometimes, even the most shut in ones, it does make the characters feel more alive, like they don't follow one specific stereotype. I do wish that Fluttershy had more moments like that more, and maybe a little less "d'aww" moments.

Think Fluttershy had two of them. The Stare Master and the season one finale.

not entirely sure if Stare Master episode counts though
