Pinkie Pie is a female Earth pony and one of the main characters of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Her father and mother call her by her full name,Pinkamena Diane Pie, in The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Hearthbreakers, and thechapter book Pinkie Pie and the Rockin’ Ponypalooza Party! Pinkie is energetic and sociable, and she represents the element of laughter. She works atSugarcube Corner and lives on the bakery’s second floor with Gummy, her pet toothless baby alligator. She writes and performs many songs, and she is the source of many of the comical and cartoonish gags in the show. She is calledPonka Po in some merchandise.
Pinkie is hyperactive, excitable, quirky, and outgoing, often speaking and acting in non sequiturs. She warmly welcomes new faces such as Twilight Sparkle and Cranky Doodle Donkey. True to the element of laughter she represents, she loves to make ponies smile and laugh.
Pinkie tends to have a lighthearted manner in serious situations, such as stopping to drink chocolate milk raining from a cotton candy cloud when the main characters confront Discordin The Return of Harmony Part 2. As a result, she is often not taken seriously even by her closest friends, who occasionally call her out on her seemingly illogical behavior.
In The Return of Harmony Part 1, Discord hypnotizes Pinkie with his chaotic magic. In this state, Pinkie is an irritable grump who hates laughter and happiness and has a general dislike of many things. When she’s returned to normal in the following episode, she laughs and says, “I-I turned gray! Can you believe it?!”
