Greta is a female griffon and supporting character who first appears in The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone. She is Gilda's first griffon friend.

Development and design

Regarding Greta's appearance in My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #24, issue writer Georgia Ball stated on Twitter that it was the result of minimal communication between her and issue artist Jay Fosgitt[1] and that she "didn't see [the completed] art until final approved letters".[2] Greta is one of three Friends Forever Issue 24-redesigned griffons, the other two being Grampa Gruff and retroactively Gretchen.

Depiction in the series

Greta appears in the season five episode The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone as a resident of Griffonstone. When Gilda and Pinkie Pie bake fresh griffon scones, Greta is distracted by the aroma, and another griffon bumps into her and knocks her down. Gilda helps her up, but Greta rudely brushes her off.

Toward the end of the episode, Gilda offers Greta some griffon scones in friendship. Greta refuses the offering at first, but she eventually accepts and compliments Gilda's scones off-screen. She is last seen sharing scones with Gilda by the statue of King Grover.

In the season six episode The Fault in Our Cutie Marks, Greta makes a brief cameo flying through Griffonstone and sharing griffon scones with Gilda in Gabby's flashback.

In the season nine episode The Ending of the End - Part 2, Greta takes part in the final battle against Queen Chrysalis, Lord Tirek, and Cozy Glow.

GRETA might come off as a grouchy Griffon at first, but give her some space. She's simply cautious around new friends. Offer a scone and get to know her. She might just follow.
