She may not be in the background, but the background ponies often have as much or more airtime in any given episode than the amount of time DJ P0N-3 had through the entire season, and they’ve also gotten additional appearances throughout the season. Like Epic Fail Pony said, calling the category “Personality Ponies” instead of “Background Ponies” would make it much more fitting for all of the ponies that would be getting included under this heading.

Fluttershy is a Tree, Scootaloo is a Chicken, and Rarity is a Marshmallow are not...

MLP:FiM is a definite subculture. As someone mentioned, Youtube is a distinct subculture. I believe the entire Rageface comic set could also be viewed as a subculture, though I can only see the Inglip stuff as being contained within that subculture. Much like how a spinoff to a star trek series is still considered part of...
