Diamond Tiara is a female school-age Earth pony and minor antagonist who first appears in Call of the Cutie. She and Silver Spoon are classmates of the Cutie Mark Crusaders. She is called Diamond Dazzle Tiara in some merchandise.
Chantal Strand tweeted on April 7, 2014 "Reading the latest #MLP script for next recording session! *Spoiler Alert* Diamond Tiara’s mean." On December 8, 2014, Chantal Strand mentioned on Facebook "you all might be seeing another side of DT soon", in reference to Crusaders of the Lost Mark.
Depiction in the series
Most of Diamond Tiara's appearances involve her making fun of others and acting superior and snobbish. In Call of the Cutie, Diamond Tiara makes her first appearance alongside Silver Spoon, inviting Apple Bloom and Twist to her cute-ceañera to celebrate her recently earned cutie mark.
- "I mean, waiting for your cutie mark is sooo last week. You got yours, I just got mine. We all have them already. [gasp] I mean, almost all of us have them already."
- — Diamond Tiara
At the cute-ceañera, Apple Bloom tries to hide her lack of a cutie mark by covering her flank with a tablecloth, insisting that she doesn't want to steal attention away from the party's guest of honor. However, when she accidentally exposes her "blank flank", Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon immediately make fun of her. Apple Bloom is soon joined by two other blank flanks named Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle. The teasing ends as Twilight Sparkle and Applejack explain that being a blank flank means that one has not yet discovered one's true potential. Diamond Tiara later stands alongside Silver Spoon in the stairway, watching the other ponies play games and upset at no longer being the center of attention.
Diamond Tiara appears again with Silver Spoon on stage at the talent show in The Show Stoppers.
In The Return of Harmony Part 1, Diamond Tiara takes part in the field trip and listens to Cheerilee's lecture. In The Cutie Pox, Diamond Tiara tries to prove that Apple Bloom's newly acquired cutie mark is fake. She asks Cheerilee if it is possible for a pony to have two cutie marks, and she appears jealous of Apple Bloom's loopty-hooping talents.
Diamond Tiara appears again in Family Appreciation Day alongside her father Filthy Rich. When she visits Sweet Apple Acres with her father, she points out Granny Smith's odd behavior to Apple Bloom and tells her how humiliating it would be if Granny Smith spoke to her class. After Granny Smith impresses Apple Bloom's class with her presentation of how she helped found Ponyville, Diamond Tiara openly denigrates her. At the end of the episode, her father forces her to participate in singing to the water cans, much to her frustration.
Diamond Tiara makes a background appearance in Hearts and Hooves Day, in which "Princess Erroria" gives her a Hearts and Hooves Day card. In Ponyville Confidential, she becomes the editor-in-chief of the Ponyville Schoolhouse's Foal Free Press newsletter. She appoints the Cutie Mark Crusaders as writers for the gossip column. Diamond Tiara is impressed by the Crusaders' gossip articles and calls the gossip column her "bread and butter". When the Cutie Mark Crusaders consider resigning to avoid hurting ponies' feelings, Diamond Tiara blackmails them into continuing with embarrassing photos. At the end of the episode, Cheerilee strips Diamond Tiara of her position, replacing her with Featherweight and demoting her to printing press operator.
In One Bad Apple, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon mock the Cutie Mark Crusaders' float for the Summer Harvest Parade. Apple Bloom's cousin Babs Seed joins them in bullying the Crusaders until they save her from a sabotaged float. Before Babs leaves Ponyville, Diamond Tiara bemoans her and Silver Spoon being left with the "blank flanks". Babs thus turns on them and threatens to tell their mothers about their behavior. In fear, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon fall in a mud puddle, and Diamond Tiara's tiara lands on a pig's head.
Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon appear in Flight to the Finish. They compete for the honor of being the Ponyville flag bearers in the Equestria Games. Realizing that the Crusaders might win with their routine, they decide to undermine Scootaloo's confidence by mocking her inability to fly. In the end, the Crusaders win the right to be flag bearers, to Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon's displeasure.
Diamond Tiara appears again in Pinkie Pride and has a singing role during Pinkie the Party Planner, where she grudgingly admits Pinkie Pie did a good job planning her cute-ceañera. Before her lines, Silver Spoon walks out of a cafe with a chocolate milkshake; Diamond Tiara pushes her own ice cream off the table and steals it. However, Silver Spoon takes it back while Diamond Tiara is singing.
She and Silver Spoon appear very briefly in a crowd shot in Simple Ways.
In Twilight Time, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon learn of the Crusaders' "Twilight Time", their personal learning sessions with Princess Twilight, and ask to come along. After this initial encounter, Diamond and Silver tell the rest of their classmates about Twilight Time and pressure the Crusaders into letting them spend time with Twilight as well. When the Crusaders later try to exclude Diamond and the others from Twilight Time, Diamond and Silver lead the other foals to the Golden Oak Library against their wishes.
When the Crusaders are unable to perform the tasks they'd been learning during Twilight Time, Diamond mocks them, saying they aren't Twilight's "entourage" any more. At this, Twilight remarks that none of the other foals came to Twilight Time to learn, and Diamond leaves the library in disappointment among her classmates.
Diamond Tiara makes a brief appearance alongside Filthy Rich in Inspiration Manifestation. She and Silver Spoon make a cameo appearance along with various ponies in the end of Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2 to see the newly formed Castle of Friendship.
Diamond Tiara appears alongside Silver Spoon in Bloom & Gloom during Apple Bloom's first dream. The two of them tease Apple Bloom for having the "lamest cutie mark ever." Later in the episode, Diamond Tiara, along with other townsfolk, starts running from a Twittermite infestation that's destroying Ponyville.
Diamond shows a significant change of heart in Crusaders of the Lost Mark. She begins the episode by running against Pipsqueak for class president, but when she loses, she is berated by her mother Spoiled Rich. After the Crusaders spy on her soliloquizing, they invite her to their clubhouse. Upon hearing Pipsqueak reveal that there is not enough money in the budget to repair the school playground, she runs off to the school seemingly to call out Pipsqueak and reclaim her place as class president. When Spoiled Rich berates her again, Diamond Tiara stands up to her mother and has her pass a note along to her father. Her father provides enough money to repair the school playground, and she helps guide the other foals in fixing it. At the end, she is the first to comment on the CMCs' new cutie marks, calling them "amazing".
In The Cart Before the Ponies, Diamond Tiara appears at the Ponyville Schoolhouse, and she takes part in the Applewood Derby with her butler Randolph. In The Fault in Our Cutie Marks, Diamond Tiara briefly appears with Silver Spoon and Pipsqueak near Ponyville town hall.
In Forever Filly, a picture of Diamond Tiara appears on a wall in the Crusaders' clubhouse alongside pictures of other ponies whose cutie mark problems they helped with. In Parental Glideance, she and her classmates applaud Scootaloo on her school report. In Fame and Misfortune, Diamond Tiara briefly appears in line outside the school for a copy of Twilight's friendship journal. In It Isn't the Mane Thing About You, Diamond Tiara is seen shopping for Mare's Day flowers for her mother with Filthy Rich.
In The Last Crusade, Diamond Tiara appears first in Cheerilee's class and later at the CMC appreciation party, where she waves at the crusaders when Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty explain their accomplishments. Her cutie mark appears on Auntie Lofty's quilt.
In The Ending of the End - Part 2, Diamond Tiara appears with her parents and other Earth ponies as Ponyville closes itself off from the other pony races. In The Last Problem, Diamond Tiara briefly appears as a fully grown mare in future Ponyville (alongside Silver Spoon and Twist) and also as a filly in Rarity's group shot during The Magic of Friendship Grows.

She later admits to Sweetie Belle that the Woods are very dear to her, as she has a lot of good memories spent with her family there. In Issue #2, Diamond overhears the Crusaders talking about her father's lumber mill tearing down the forest, and voices her disapproval of his actions. She also ends up giving the three an idea by wishing that the Spirit of the woods is real. In Issue #3, she visits the dejected Crusaders after their attempts to stop Filthy Rich have failed, and offers to help them. After a walk through the woods, she takes Rich to her great-grandmother's old cabin, reminding him of all the fond memories there. She eventually convinces him to plant a tree for every one that is cut down, thereby preserving the forest.
Diamond Tiara appears in the Ponyville Mysteries books Schoolhouse of Secrets and The Tail of the Timberwolf, accusing Lilymoon of enchanting the schoolhouse classroom in the former and hailing her as a hero in the latter.

Mobile game descriptions
The daughter of Filthy Rich, Diamond Tiara is a pretentious pony who usually gets [her just deserts./what she deserves]
Future Diamond Tiara:
It isn't ours to speculate on Diamond Tiara's future, but we'd bet she gets pretty heavily into both friendship and philanthropy -- and means it, too!
Summertime Diamond Tiara:
Summer for Diamond Tiara probably involves yachts of some kind. Maybe skiffs? Or...schooners? Are those a thing?
The Elements of Harmony guidebook
DIAMOND TIARA and SILVER SPOON believe that money and expensive baubles can buy happiness. Together, the pretentious pair enjoy teasing young ponies who haven't gotten their cutie marks.
Volume II guidebook
DIAMOND TIARA likes only the finest of things. She enjoys poking fun at ponies she thinks are lacking and behind the times. Rude. Someday she'll learn that putting ponies down won't make her feel better about herself.

A Diamond Dazzle Tiara miniature collectible is included in the Class of Cutie Marks Set with Apple Bloom and Applejack. A brushable toy of her has been displayed at the 2013 New York Toy Fair, and is to be released as part of the Toys "R" Us exclusives arriving in-store summer 2013.
Diamond Tiara is generally shown to be rude, shallow, stuck up, sarcastic, and nasty. Her closest (if not only) friend appears to be Silver Spoon, who often acts as a follower and is usually seen by her side. She sees those without their cutie marks as inferior and tauntingly refers to them as "blank flanks". Despite the Cutie Mark Crusaders often being the subject of her ridicule, she will try to "befriend" them if something is in it for her, as seen in Twilight Time. She also encourages their stories in Ponyville Confidential, but later resorts to blackmailing them when they try to resign.
In Crusaders of the Lost Mark, Diamond Tiara's bullying ways and views toward "blank flanks" are revealed to be a result of her upbringing by her mother Spoiled Rich, who harbors an equal if not deeper contempt for the common social class. Though Diamond Tiara acts according with her mother's teachings, she secretly wants to be better. After standing up to her mother, she displays a friendlier and more generous side, donating money to the school and guiding other ponies through her natural-born leadership.
