My PIE!!! [/Soarin]
The post above me were by newfags.
All hail to the honorary Alicorn Ruler of Equestria!!!
Pinkie pie and Fluttershy have been demoted? :(
If they ever gave Big Mac something decent to say...Anyway, all hail Derpy!
Of course Derpy won by a complete landslide. lolI figured Discord would easily win best villain too.Dang. Lyra won best non-speaking background character. I came in third behind Vinyl. Not too shabby. How did Screw Loose get Honorary Mention though when she came in sixth? Not saying she isn't great, because she is. But still.Princess Luna in best princess. I can agree with this. :)The Trixie and Pinkie charts made me laugh. Especially Trixie's. xD!
I for one welcome our new clumsy and adorable overlord
I just lost it at the Pinkie Pie category
Daring Do will always be best speaking background pony.
Derpy is essentially the Brony mascot so I'm glad she won! Not sure I agree with best overall pony though, personally I like Rainbow Dash the least out of the mane 6, but again that's just my opinion, and obviously not many share it. Again least favorite out of the 6 does not equal I don't like her, it just means I like her less than say Twilight, who in my opinion is sorta the main character anyway.
Yes, Trixie is the best in all categories.LittlePip above Nyx. Those two are always the figureheads for OC/fics......Best Pony......AppleJack, why?!
We just crashed the link. Well it's crashed for me.
We broke ist....
Best OC something other than Sweetie Bot?I CALL SHENANIGANS
Whoa, whoa, whoa. It's obvious that Fluttershy should be on this list, but Pinkie Pie!? She just had a whole episode! And another earlier in the season!
OH NOES WE CRASH IMGUR
We broke teh imgur. This is what happens when you post something on EqD. Poor Imgur, and their sudden Brony rampage...
@JaberwockySorry only ponies with souls were counted.
Also lol we broke the site...
Is tjis minor characters only.... Or....?
Derpy yes.Junebug needs more love! Why everypony hate Junebug?
HOW'S THAT ROUNDUP GOING?!...Oh yea, we broke imgur. Good show bronies!
I was gonna say "That's not how you spell Trixie," but then I realized Trixie isn't a background pony anyway.She is The Great And Powerful Trixie. There is no scenery she cannot eat, no background powerful enough to tame her.So in light of that, I'ma say "YAY DERPY!" :-D
At first I was disappoint that Derpy won over Mac and the 'Bolts.But then I saw that Rainbow Dash took best pony, and Twilight Sparkle was the runner up (I'd have been happy with the reverse as well), and that Scoots won best filly. And that made EVERYTHING better.
I never got a vote :p @bombeWait. Aj best pony?
Twilight Sparkle was runner up for best pony AND second best ponyEven when she wins, she loses D:
Zecora ans Big Macintosh are hardly background ponies. Same with Cherilee. They have multiple speaking roles in multiple episodes.
Did seth have to.do with teh polls -,- because if he did im not surprised that there is a trixie poll thing
Errr...I can't tell some of the colors apart...Needs text-based rankings...
Oh no doctor? I mean he does have several speaking roles... Still GO DERPY! WOOHOO! And Dashie is best pony!
@duskwispIt's probably just a ploy to get on his good side.Wouldn't be the first time some one did that (you know the post where pinkie pops out of the screen, that was actually an intro solely designed to get his attention, the rest of the video is music, no video, just music. Not even kidding.)Course this trick willlikely not help you get your fanfics submitted because they still have to go through the pre-readers first. So be warned!
Wait. Rainbow is best mane six. Best mane six. Mane six. YES! TIME TO.GET BACK AT A FRIEND WHO CONSTANTLY SAID TWI WAS BEST AND THERE WAS NO EXVEPTIONS! PARTY TIME¡¡¡ SOMEONE GET PINKIE PIE\¡¡¡¡¡¡
@mattwodont worry, i wont use trixie to get to seth *hides trixie related gifts behind back*yeaahhh
I never get to vote cause I didn't know there was a survey, and I'm not too happy with the results, some of the the results are disappointing 1 reason is that Fluttershy didn't win the best pony category but I do understand why
I think Fluttershy is losing popularity because it's been soooo long since she had a proper episode :'(Putting Your Hoof Down, don't fail me!
Derpy: Muffin to it.
Needs moar Applejack. A good poll while some of these results were quite obvious, like discord as best villain. Woo Lyra won one!
guys if they have speaking roles how are they background charactersthis. makes. no. sense.
@Asaboy I do not understand why :(

@Pikari ooh, thanks!Again with the "down with AppleJack, up with x!" arguments.....Hey, bronies, could we start using the phrase "I like x the best" instead of "x is best pony", PLEASE?
Since when were Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy background characters?
Why so few votes for Bon Bon?So here's my top 3 fave pony I can relate to.1. Applejack2. Fluttershy3. Rarity
1.Luna2.PinkiePie3.RainbowDash4.Derpy(only cuz she sais like nothing)5. vinyl scratch6.Docter whooves----------/----------/----------/-------------/-----background1.COLGATE2.bon bon3.docter whooves4.scootaloo (aka chicken)5.THE gREAT AND POWERFUL TRIXIE
@Daniel G. Read what wloff said, its a pretty good answer
After all those surveys posted on EqD I've finally concluded that the only pony-rating method I think it's reliable are the best pony/favorite pony polls here on the website....and I'm still waiting for the next.
butbutbut... pinkie and fluttershy aren't background characters...
RD best pony? *sad face*
@Cort1211Yeah, I'm a little cautious of taking this seriously. Zecora shouldn't even be on here since she's not a pony.
Ehh? Background ponies... but Trixie isn't in it, and the mane cast are? Weird poll.
>Hoity Toity not even on the listareyoufuckingkiddingme.jpg
>While background ponies with one or two short sentence speaking roles areThis poll is biased.
Who the hell is this "Karma" pony?
Pinkie Pie appears in almost all of those pies. O.o
Gotta say, that Pinkie Pie chart (lawl, i c wut they dun thar) made me lol. I had no doubt that Scootaloo was (and is still) best CMC, nor did I doubt that Derpy was the best background pony. I mean, who can resist that level of adorability?The Fluttershy one was sickeningly adorable (big surprise, eh?) on too many levels to count. Can't wait for her upcoming episode!I was a little saddened that Zecora and Cheerilee didn't come in a higher spot than they did. I mean COME ON! Screw Loose hadn't even existed before Read it and Weep, and she probably won't ever appear again but she got the honorable mention? What is this, I don't even...Rainbow Dash as best overall pony was okay in my opinion. I'd have put her there myself just because of how awesome her bedroom is.The Great and Powerful Chart made me have a great and powerful sqee attack.
I welcome our walleyed Pegasus overlord.
Not be overly technical, but a bunch of those characters are not background ponies. They are secondary characters. Derpy is a background pony, because she was created with no other initial role than to fill up the background. Big Mac is not a background pony, because he was created to serve as a foil for another character and had a personality from his first appearance. See also: Mrs. Cake, Daring Do, Cheerilee, and Spitfire.
lol DERPY WINS
@Nyergudsif anyone is curious why some votes were out of place (such as pinkie for best cmc), i counted all troll votes too. science.if you want to throw your 2-bits in the poll is still up on reddit. if anything drastic changes i'll revisit the results.thanks!
the reason some votes don't make sense (such as pinkie as a cmc) is that there was no form data, users submitted whatever choices they liked. and i counted troll votes for fun.if you want to throw your 2-bits in the poll is still up here. thanks!
Of course best pony won
YES! RD IS BEST MAIN PONY!!
Sigh... it's weird how much I hate Derpy's voice yet everybody loves it.
Twilight finishes in second place for Best Pony and Second Best Pony with nearly one-fifth of the votes in both categories? As much as I wanted her to win, I am O.K. with this.
Pokey Pierce? Princess Platinum?
What? Littlepip didn't win best OC? I am so disappoint.
why was rarity and pinkie pie in best villian?
Just wondering if anyone else looked at the best speaking background pony chart and tried to find somepony in particular and got confused because the pie slice wasn't one of that pony's colors? :)
Rainbow Dash as best pony? INSERT SCOFF HERE. She's definitely not the best in season two, being a constant jerk and all.
@UrthdiggerOf COURSE she had her own category. She heard there was a survey on the internet and broke the fourth wall so she had her own category! :)
I see a pattern here.. disregarding the Mane Six, pony popularity seems to be inversely proportional to screentime.
Midnight isn't even in the Best OC category? I call shenanigans. :-|
Yes, pie chart. Yes that does make her best pony. Deal with it.
Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy are background ponies?
Props to the guy who voted "That one Raider Pony from Fallout: Equestria" for best OC
Apparently, Karma is an OC of the reddit community.Never been on reddit, so that's just what a google search showed me.
@PikariI like how, with the exception of the Trixie chart, Pinkie Pie is on EVERY chart, consistently at 2%, with the obvious exception of the two Mane Six charts.I see what you did there, Pinkie. Element of Laughter indeed.
Looks like (is?) my Derpy vector :p
Not sure on the accuracy of this. Pinkie and Shy are mane 6ers. A non mane 6er that TALKS in any way is a secondary pony. A pony that APPEARS in an episode but does not SPEAK is a background pony. They have all three levels in this survey. But I love all ponies!
Comprehensive as in pick random ponies, leave out other major ones, and include some of the mane 6 in background pony polls?
Pinkie Pie is best pony in every chart.
My only question is why are pinkie pie and fluttershy included in this list? They ain't background ponies. Somepony dun fudged up here.
where is doctor whoof? and why are there main 6 in the background pie?
yeh, but is The Great and Powerful Trixie on that list? she would win in a GREAT AMAZING FLASH!
Zecora is best voice actor
Rainbow Dash, Scootaloo and Lyra all won?! If Spitfire made it I'd be 4 for 4.
Don't worry Fluttershy, you will always be the best pony to me
All glory to the Muffin Queen!
How the heck did Nightmare Moon lose to Discord?She STARTED this show for crying out loud.
Best villain: I definitely agree with this one. None of the other villains even come close to ponified Q.Best pet: I still don't really like Tank, to be honest. I probably would've voted for Gummy, but I really don't care about any of them.Best speaking background pony: Why are Pinkie and Fluttershy in here? Anyway, Daring Do wins this hands down as far I'm concerned.Best non-speaking background pony: I must admit I do have a certain fondness for Lyra, despite her lack of lines. I just like her color scheme and cutie mark, I guess.Best OC: The Sethisto pony obviously wins this one :PBest CMC: Scootaloo is just awesome. Strange to see "They're all annoying" got so many votes..Best princess: I'm tempted to go with female Blueblood due to the excellent "Ask Blueblood" tumblr..Best pony: I really wasn't expecting that. Twilight and Fluttershy usually easily win these competitions. It's a pleasant surprise, though.Second best pony: It's obviously Pinkie Pie. At least she got an honorable mention.Pinkie Pie: Damn. I was really rooting for Pinkie Pie.BBPoaBCitBS: So smoke is the best pony?
im happy for Derpy, but why the BUCK are Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy listed with background ponies? :\ Thats not right man.I, on the other hoof, welcome our cross-eyes overlord.
This SOUNDED legitimate and interesting, but you should really put up a warning that they are, for the most part, utterly ridiculous.Each category either had a few questionable entries or was completely pointless. Scootaloo as a pet? Diamond Tiara as a CMC? Rarity as a villain? REALLY? Pinkie Pie and Trixie polls that don't even ask anything? REALLY?Also, the OC character category was discriminate because 1. I'm pretty sure there are too many OC characters out there to narrow it down fairly, and 2. not all bronies would be able to vote in this poll, only those who were familiar with ANY of those characters, leaving out those who are dedicated to the show but not involved in EVERYTHING in the brony fanbase.You'll probably say that I shouldn't "take things so seriously", but you guys made it sound like these poll results would actually say something, when, the way the polls were apparently set up, they are completely invalid.
The Pinkie Pie Poll was obviously rigged. It's bad enought Pinkie Pie lost to Pinkie Pie, but the fact that Pinkie Pie came in last... Not possible!
Pinkie Pie was in every one of them... SEEMS LEGIT (then again, knowing Pinkie, it actually does kinda work).
Ahhh yeah, Dash it best pony!
Poor Applejack. Last place in Both "Best" And "Second Best"?! I couldn't help but notice that Pinkie Pie was on every category she could be in. Crazy Pinkie.
HOW ARE PINKIE PIE AND FLUTTERSHY BACKGROUND PONIES!!!!
Where the Hell is Braeburn!?
Lol I said Fluttershy because she hasn't had an episode yet this season but it's really funny to see it again here.
This poll is whack because I notice a distinct lack of Cheerilee who is best background speaking pony.
Well ok Cheerlie is second best background speaking pony because it really belongs to Zecora....But it's really close!
WHAT. PINKIE ISN'T A BACKGROUND PONY AND NEITHER IS FLUTTERSHY.
