Rainbowshine S1E16 thumb

Rainbowshine, a Pegasus pony in the weather factory in Cloudsdale.

Pegasus ponies, or Pegasi, are ponies characterized by their wings and their ability to fly and manipulate clouds.


Development and nomenclatureEdit

Pegasus ponies were introduced shortly after Earth ponies in the original My Little Pony toy line. On the show, they are called either Pegasus ponies or Pegasi, and mostly "Pegasus" for a single pony, though "Pegasus pony" is also used, as specified in the article ponies. Lauren Faust, the show's developer, stated that the Pegasus ponies have a passive kind of magic that allows them to walk on clouds and manipulate the weather.[1]

Depiction in the seriesEdit

Pegasus ponies possess wings. They are capable of great speed in the air, though are not always as fast as Earth ponies on foot, as seen in Fall Weather Friends. While competing for the title of Iron Pony, Rainbow Dash is equally matched with Applejack, an Earth pony. Several other Pegasus ponies who participate in the Running of the Leaves are seen panting in exhaustion at the end of the race.

Pegasus ponies manipulate the weather in several episodes, moving clouds to either cause a storm or clear the skies. In Sonic Rainboom, they also create snowflakes and rainbows in special factories.

Fluttershy S2E22

Two notable Pegasi: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy.

Pegasus ponies have a unique ability among ponies to naturally walk on clouds, which is elaborated upon when Dash's friends wish to cheer her in the Best Young Flyer competition. This ability is not limited to Pegasus ponies; Gilda, a griffon, is also seen walking on clouds, and in May the Best Pet Win, several other creatures capable of flight perch on clouds.

The Pegasi's role in the founding of Equestria is depicted in Hearth's Warming Eve. The pageant in the episode features a Pegasus tribe that is led by Commander Hurricane, played by Rainbow Dash. Commander Hurricane wears battle armor as a sign of high-rank and refers to the Pegasi as "a mighty tribe of warriors".

Pony Weightlifting S02E22


In Hurricane Fluttershy, Pegasi are used to bring water up to Cloudsdale, which is needed to make rainclouds. Their wings are extremely strong, enough to lift 1,000 pound* weights (*these weights have no actual indication of metric unit), as shown by a background Pegasus in the episode (see right), and their wingpower can be shown by a wingpower machine. All Pegasi are capable of generating a wind vortex by flying quickly in a circle, and a super vortex of 800 wing power is needed to lift water.
