• Derpy Day Discussion - Character Progression, Episode Ideas and More

    Out of all the characters in the show, Derpy is probably the most unique I would argue. From very humble beginnings as a background character that was never meant to be included in the shot she was seen in her popularity exploded as she became the first background character we latched onto. Over the course of season 1 a lot of the traits we see in the picture above began to be accepted into fanon lore for Derpy, particularly that she was a mail mare and she loved muffins.

    Over the course of the show she became more than just an easter egg getting her first voice-acted appearance in season 2 (which led to Derpygate), having an important role in episode 100, and even appearances in the MLP Movie. And she was a character we as a fandom essentially created from a blank slate, that is truly something special.

    So what do you guys think? What do you think of Derpy's progression over the show's history? If Derpy could have had more time in the spotlight what episodes would you have liked her to have? What parts of fanon do you like or dislike about Derpy outside of muffins and being a mail mare (I know there are quite a few of you Derpy and Doctor Whooves fans out there)?
