Share on Pinterest

Many of us in the animation community are very excited for a new animated film this weekend: My Little Pony: The Movie. This is a feature film version of the popular TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and is the first 2D animated film from a major studio in a long time. Recently wrapping up its 7th season Friendship is Magic is led by what has come to be known as the Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Applejacks, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie.

Each of these ponies adds their own flair to the franchise, which is part of why the show works for so many different demographics and personalities.

So that leads us to today’s Daily Debate:

Who is your favorite of the Mane 6 and why?

Let us know in the comments below or head on over to our Facebook page to join the discussion there!

    Pinkie Pie

  • Unico > My Little Pony

    Just sayin’…

    • I see that it’s from the same guy who did Kimba the White Lion.
      Thanks for mentioning this Gent. I might check out the movie.

      • You’re welcome CarFan! It’s a very heart-touching movie that doesn’t feel at all mushy gushy when it comes to it’s core message of ‘happiness & friendship’ to the viewers and overall, the characters are so lovable that they truly come off as being very humanly genuine.

    Applejacks all the way!

    Struggle between RB and Rarity. Rarity has a lot of me in her. Vain, artistic, and ambitious. But I like RB precisely because I’m not like her at all.

    • Mojo

      IF your talking about “RD” as “RB” you arne’t not like her at all if your ambitious. That’s a trait her and Rarity both greatly share.

      • Jeremiah

        We-yell, yes. But it seems like different kinds of ambition. A carefully planned ambition (Rarity) vs. diving in and just having big goals (RB). Who are you most like?

    Twilight Sparkle has ALWAYS been my favorite from the get-go. She is smart, book-obsessed and a total dork… and she’s also a princess, so she’s like the Belle of FiM (except purple, with wings, and at times, an extreme worrywart). Who says eggheads can’t be princesses? Also, she actually DOES something as a princess, which definitely breaks the usual princess mold in kids’ cartoons.

    Applejack is an honest yet stubborn country gal that loves her family. She is underrated BEST PONY.

  • Mojo

    Rarity, as it has been for years.

  • Pinkie Pie.

  • Erica Davies

    This may be an unconventional answer, but Fluttershy is my fave out of the Mane 6. I used to be very shy when I was little. Also kindness is one of my biggest traits, that and optimism. That is why she is my favorite pony.

  • Rainbow Dash for the win!

  • TundraStanza

    Twilight Sparkle, followed closely by Applejack.

  • Eli Sanza

    Fluttershy. Quiet and shy people are my favorite people because I relate to them the most.

  • Marier Villarreal

    I like Twilight, Applejack, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie the most. I see myself in each of these characters. I like Rarity and RD, but I’m not a fan of fashion myself nor am I as daring as RD. I still like them all, though!

  • Marielle

    Fluttershy because I like her appearance the most and because she loves animals. Twilight is cool too, but main characters are always overexposed!

  • Yellow

    I’d say Rarity.

  • chad kosch

    Rarity! Forever and always. 😉

  • I personally relate the most with Fluttershy so I love her, but Rarity makes me laugh the most, so she’s my favorite! I love when she gets dramatic and a flops onto a magically appearing chaise lounge sofa! Rarity’s a great role model for artists & entrepreneurs, and I also like how generous she is even though she has such an affinity for the fancy life.

  • When I first watched the show I adored Fluttershy mainly for how hilarious she was and her cuteness factor
    But with years passing and knowing myself more in school I really resonate more with Twilight a lot more given we always worry about things and love books and just want everything to work out.
    Heck when she first started she didn’t care for friendship and me in high school I thought that also, and funny thing we finally realized we actually do and were given that chance to actually be happy for once 🙂

  • Fluttershy matches up the most with my personality, so I relate to her the most.
    But I like Applejack as well. She’s determined, hard-working, and caring as well.

  • Ruise

    Applejack!!! It’s hard to explain why I like her so much but I just think she’s the cutest pony! I love her orange coat, and the freckles, and the hat, and I especially love her countryisms, her farm (just how cozy the setting of it is) and how much she loves her apples!! After AJ, I love all the rest of the mane 6, but I gotta throw some Spike appreciation into this debate! As of season 7 I think he’s the most mature character on the show most of the time (after more than a few stumbles in earlier seasons) and I love how his number one priority is always his friends!
