Doctor Maud Pie, full name Maudileena[note 1] Daisy Pie, is a female Earth pony and Pinkie Pie's older sister. She is first seen as a filly in a portrait in Pinkie Pride, before first appearing in person as a grown mare in the season four episode of the same name, and her human counterpart appears in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls franchise; both counterparts also appear in IDW comics. She is called Maud Rock Pie in some merchandise.

Development and design

With her single eyelash on each eye, Maud shares her eye design with many female Crystal Ponies.

Her name is a play on mud pie, a popular dessert that originated in the state of Mississippi.

Maud's cutie mark is a rock cut into a diamond-like shape, closely resembling the shape of Tom the rock. Though usually hidden under her frock, it's briefly visible when she rescues Pinkie from the boulder in the episode Maud Pie, and is also visible in Hasbro, some Enterplay, and some WeLoveFine merchandise. In the show, it resembles Tom's usual form, while in merchandise, its shape more closely resembles Rarity's Discord-influenced vision of Tom as a diamond.

Maud's name is (mis)spelled as "Maude" in an April Fools' Day 2013 tweet by Meghan McCarthy,[2] in the script[3][4] for Make New Friends but Keep Discord, in some merchandise, and in a March 24, 2018 tweet by Michael Vogel,[5] and as "Mod" in closed captioning for Gauntlet of Fire.

On December 1, 2014, when asked if "Maud is an Apple too," Maud's voice actress Ingrid Nilson stated that "all will be revealed soon. #MLPS5"[6]

Depiction in the series

Season one

In The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Pinkie Pie refers to her sisters collectively, which technically includes Maud despite her not appearing in Pinkie's flashback.

Season four

Maud first appears as a filly in Pinkie Pride, in a photograph of the first party Pinkie Pie had ever thrown.

At the beginning of the episode Maud Pie, Pinkie Pie speaks at length about her close relationship with Maud and their tradition of trading rock candy necklaces. She describes Maud as sharing interests with her friends, such as Rarity's love of fashion, Applejack's honesty, and Twilight's fondness for books.

Pinkie and her sister Maud...and Gummy.

When Maud arrives in Ponyville and meets Pinkie's friends, the ponies are surprised by her eccentricities, overall lack of enthusiasm bordering on apathy, and strange taste in games. She also has a pet rock named Boulder.

Each of Pinkie's friends attempt to befriend Maud, but her odd tastes and interests at times clash with theirs. She prefers plain, sometimes muddy fashion choices over Rarity's lavish dresses, is more interested in rocks than Fluttershy's many animal friends, writes her own rock-themed poetry, and is honest to the point of bluntness.

Maud saving Pinkie from the rock slide.

When the ponies tell Pinkie that they can't connect with Maud the way she has, Pinkie puts together a large obstacle course that incorporates all of their interests as a bonding activity. When Pinkie demonstrates how the course is run and inadvertently puts herself in harm's way, Maud springs into action and displays incredible speed and tremendous physical strength by smashing a giant boulder to bits. It's with this feat that the others realize the extremes Maud would go for her sister, and are able to befriend Maud over their shared love of Pinkie.

As Pinkie and her friends see Maud off and exchange rock candy necklaces, Maud smiles, saying that while she doesn't really like candy, she does love Pinkie Pie.

Season five

Maud Pie appears in Make New Friends but Keep Discord as Pinkie Pie's guest to the Grand Galloping Gala. During Discord's stand-up comedy routine, she makes a blunt remark that earns the other guests' laughter.

Maud and the rest of her family return in Hearthbreakers. In a few scenes, she has some bonding time with Apple Bloom.

In The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 1, Maud appears in an alternate timeline as one of Princess Celestia's soldiers in a war against King Sombra.

Season six

Maud admiring the rock pouch Pinkie gave her.

In the episode The Gift of the Maud Pie, Maud meets Pinkie Pie in Manehattan to celebrate their yearly "Pie Sisters' Surprise Swap Day", in which they spend the day sightseeing together and exchange gifts at sundown. Throughout her stay in Manehattan, Maud mostly expresses interest in rock-related things, and she briefly demonstrates a talent for ice skating.

During the gift exchange, Maud gives Pinkie a cardboard container of cupcake-scented confetti, and she receives a special rock pouch to carry her pet Boulder in. However, when she learns that Pinkie acquired the pouch in exchange for her precious party cannon, Maud returns the pouch to get the cannon back. She also tells Pinkie that no matter what she receives for Pie Sisters' Surprise Swap Day, she'll cherish it as long as it is given out of love.

In Gauntlet of Fire, Rarity alludes to Maud.

Season seven

Maud befriends Starlight Glimmer.

In Rock Solid Friendship, Maud earns her rocktorate in rock science, as well as the title of "doctor", and considers moving to Ponyville to further her studies. As Pinkie shows her what Ponyville has to offer, Maud befriends Starlight Glimmer and bonds with her over rocks and kite-flying. Despite her sister's overeager meddling, Maud eventually decides to settle in Ponyville, moving into a gem cave near the village.

A flashback in the episode reveals that Maud inadvertently helped Starlight on her path to establishing her village of cutie mark-less ponies, pointing her in the direction of the cave where she would contain the cutie marks of her followers.

In Uncommon Bond, during Sunburst's visit to Ponyville, Maud becomes friends with him due to their shared interest in geology. She later helps him reconcile with Starlight Glimmer when she feels left out during his visit.

Season eight

Maud and her boyfriend Mudbriar.

In The Maud Couple, Maud introduces Pinkie to her boyfriend Mudbriar. His mannerisms and quirks severely get on Pinkie's nerves, to the point where Pinkie is unable to rationalize how or why Maud likes him. After getting some advice from her other sisters Limestone and Marble, Pinkie puts up with Mudbriar because he makes Maud happy, and the three celebrate Maud's birthday together.

In Fake It 'Til You Make It, Maud makes a cameo as one of the potential ponies Rarity asks to run her Manehattan shop, Rarity For You. Maud declines, but suggests Fluttershy, and to a lesser extent, Boulder. In The Break Up Break Down, Maud appears spending time with Mudbriar during Hearts and Hooves Day (with their pets Boulder and Twiggy having a similar date).

In A Matter of Principals, Starlight Glimmer hires Maud to be a temporary substitute teacher at the School of Friendship. In Yakity-Sax, Maud transports all of Pinkie's belongings back to the Pie family rock farm as a result of Pinkie temporarily moving to Yakyakistan. When Pinkie's friends try to ask her what's going on, she provides overly-literal answers to their questions.

Best Gift Ever

In the holiday special My Little Pony Best Gift Ever, Maud appears celebrating Hearth's Warming Eve with her and Applejack's families, and Mudbriar. When Pinkie asks her, Limestone and Marble to help her choose a perfect gift for Twilight, Maud suggests giving her a rock, despite Pinkie doubting that Twilight would really want a rock.

Season nine

In Sparkle's Seven, Maud appears briefly as a "specialist" to aid with Twilight's heist, helping Applejack to break a rock by finding its weakest spot.

Maud likes Mudbriar's new look!

In Student Counsel, Maud and Mudbriar throw a part for their friends to celebrate the Spring Solstice. During the party, Terramar shows up, asking for help finding his sister Silverstream. During the search, the group encounter a flock of Cockatrices, leading to Mudbriar being turned to stone (which makes him more attractive in Maud's eyes). After Silverstream is found, having tamed a Cockatrice she named "Edith", Maud reluctantly asks for Mudbriar to be restored to normal.

In A Trivial Pursuit, Maud participates in the Trivia Trot alongside Mudbriar. Twilight mentions how the two are often a team during the game (despite the fact that the teams are chosen by random selection), and Maud correctly answers question about the Ghastly Gorge and what rock is used to start fires. When Twilight persuades Pinkie to ask Maud about the famous rock in Griffonstone, she refuses to answer since it is against Trivia Trot rules, and it leads to Pinkie being disqualified.

In The Ending of the End - Part 2, Maud appears taking shelter with Mudbriar and other Earth ponies as Ponyville closes itself off from the other pony races. She later appears in the final battle against Queen Chrysalis, Lord Tirek, and Cozy Glow, watching Twilight and her friends defeat them. In The Last Problem, Maud attends Twilight Sparkle's coronation ceremony with Mudbriar. She also briefly appears in Pinkie Pie's group shot during The Magic of Friendship Grows. Both times, she is standing beside Mudbriar.

The Elements of Harmony Vol. II guidebook

MAUD PIE is Pinkie Pie's older sister. She might seem aloof at first, but get to know her and she's kind-hearted as Pinkie Pie.


Maud is often depicted with a blank neutral facial expression, with her eyes half-closed and a dry demeanor that contrasts her more upbeat sister. She has a tendency to talk in a rather monotonous and dry tone of voice. She never smiles except for a few occasions while interacting with her closest friends such as Pinkie, Apple Bloom in Hearthbreakers, Starlight in Rock Solid Friendship and Student Counsel, and Mudbriar in The Maud Couple and Student Counsel.

In addition, Maud is shown to have a deep knowledge of and fascination with rocks. Despite her typically flat demeanor, she deeply loves her sister Pinkie Pie and shows a deep concern for her when her life is put in apparent danger. Despite not sharing Pinkie's interests in throwing surprise parties and making candy, she enjoys doing such activities with Pinkie solely because her sister does.

Despite her apathetic demeanor, Maud is shown to be a mature and responsible sister for Pinkie, especially when saving her from a dangerous obstacle course in her debut episode.

She also appears to share some of Pinkie's characteristics, such as claiming to have an intuition known as "Maud Sense", and at two points in The Gift of the Maud Pie, she seems to disappear from one space and appear in another.

Rock Solid Friendship reveals that Maud often feels excluded by other ponies, due to their inability to understand her interests and mannerisms. She also has a love for stand-up comedy, as shown in Make New Friends but Keep Discord and The Maud Couple.
