• Discussion: Would You Consider Derpy Hooves to be the Fandom "Mascot?"

    Derpy has been a huge part of the fandom since the earliest days of pony, and is one of those original backgrounders that we've made absolutely ridiculous amounts of content of. We've had ups and downs with her thanks to the adoption in the show followed by subsequent removal and battle to save her. Fanwise, she's one of the most influential characters.

    A debate came up in one of my Discord chats the other day. Some argue she's the fandom's mascot, while others disagree. What do you think? Is Derpy Hooves a big enough deal to represent our silly little horse fandom? Or are there other characters that take the role a bit better?
