Make-A-Wish Foundation character three

"He wasn’t in that episode. He was in Ep. 714 “Fame and Misfortune”. He’s one of the ponies who approaches TS to get an autograph who wants to keep it in a Mylar bag. He has blue hair. Doesn’t have any disloyal."
Jim Miller describing Make-A-Wish Foundation character three

Between the solid-mane-colored unicorn stallion and the gradient-mane-colored unicorn stallion, this seemed to be the solid-mane-colored one (since the gradient-mane-colored one has no bag), but I've belatedly realized what the seemingly-cryptic "Doesn’t have any disloyal" could be a Cupertino effect misrendering of: "Doesn’t have any dialogue"—they each have dialogue, but the solid-mane-colored one's is credited (to Michael Dobson; contrast the first, second, and fourth Make-A-Wish characters being voiced by their respective wishers) while the gradient-mane-colored one's is within uncredited walla (according to Fame and Misfortune's scripts)...

According to Sweet and Smoky, Tangerine Dragon's name is Fume; according to Enterplay and Gameloft, Purple Dragon's name is Fume. Name-sharing (like Cloud Chaser and Cloud Chaser) or misidentification (like Blossomforth and Helia)? (7)6(four) (talk) 13:45, May 21, 2019 (UTC)

Tangerine Dragon is named Billy in VITAC closed captioning. furdklZ.png 2xoHxMt.gif 10:57, May 26, 2019 (UTC)
It's a case of misidentification on the part of either a storyboard artist or a layout artist, which lead to animation. Orange dragon is still Billy (thank you to the caption writers for referencing multiple sources!), and the purple dragon is still Fume. Dogman15 (talk) 06:13, May 27, 2019 (UTC)
