I noticed that some cartoons and animes have subcategories for popular characters, and I was wondering whether it would be possible to do the same for applicable parts of MLP: Friendship is Magic. I see on the Fairy Tale request thread that it's no longer reccomended for us to link our evidence, so...

I have found 25 pieces of art containing only or dominantly Twilight Sparkle, and 30 pieces of art containing only or dominantly Fluttershy.

I support this idea to give some character subcategories to the Friendship Is Magic category because I have been seeing many MLP fan characters sent to the AP along with many Pinky Pies, Twilights, and Apple Jacks.

This show seems to really be known for their individual characters.

I am still scared by the fact that ponies got so popular.

Category-wise it seems Fluttershy is quite popular, she's the only one who fills up a full page of 25 by herself. But, altogether, the six main characters do take a good chunk (over 100) out of the FiM general category.

We're probably going to need a category for pony OC's, too.

EDIT: Added the OC's category and sorted it, however this was done by instinct so I may have made a mistake here and there. Anyone want to give it a quick browse and inform me if I put any canon characters into the OC section or vice versa? It's hard for me to tell.

I'll look into it. Smile

OK...

"Background Ponies," smaller-part ponies who rarely get lines or have fan names having been seen briefly in the show:

Luckylace: Definitely known for individual characters. Smile I'm not sure how it became a huge cultural phenom myself, but as one can see by my gallery, I do recognize some merit in it. And I think most people outside of the herd are a little freaked out by its existence. Wink

Could we also consider adding a category for the diarchs/Princess Sisters/Celestia & Luna? It looks like we've got about enough material on them.
