The Twilight Sparkle Scepter, also known as the Twilicane, is a pure gold scepter topped with the head of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic character Twilight Sparkle wearing a sheepish grin.


In Season 4 Episode 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, originally aired on November 23rd, 2013, the villain character Discord gives Twilight Sparkle a scepter and a royal cape while mocking her for being a princess after leaving her friends in the Everfree Forest (shown below).


After the episode aired on November 23rd, 2013, threads about it began to appear on 4chan's /mlp/ (pony) board, with the scepter first being pointed out a few hours later in a screencapture thread.[8] The first seperate thread about the scepter was launched a few hours after that,[9] quickly resulting in image macros and photoshops of the scepter.


On November 24th, the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic storyboard artist Sabrina Alberghetti posted a tweet linking to a face swapped image of Twilight Sparkle and the scepter. That same day, Alberghetti also commented on a vector of the scepter uploaded to DeviantART, saying that it was she who animated that scene.[11]

The same day, YouTuber Daimondo uploaded a video featuring a 3D-rendered model of the scepter in the sandbox game Garry's Mod (shown below, left). Also on November 24th, the My Little Pony blog Equestria Daily[1] published an article about the overnight popularity surrounding the scepter, providing links to Garry’s Mod and Team Fortress 2 3D models[2] of the scepter and a newly-created “Ask Twilight Scepter” Tumblr blog.[3] On November 25th, YouTuber MrMental4 uploaded a parody of the Leekspin animation featuring Twilight Sparkle and the scepter (shown below, right).

On the same day, MLP Forums[4] member Bunny submitted a thread about the scepter, noting its prevalence on the My Little Pony-related image hosting site Derpibooru.[5] Also on November 25th, Redditor Scottfra submitted an animated GIF of a dead horse being beaten with the scepter (shown below) to the /r/mylittlepony[6] subreddit, which was initially uploaded to Know Your Meme by user Tyler Bowman[7] a day earlier, gaining over 520 up votes and 35 comments in the first 16 hours.
