Spoiled Rich (née Spoiled Milk) is a female Earth pony and Diamond Tiara's manipulative and overbearing mother. She is first mentioned indirectly by Babs Seed in One Bad Apple, and she makes her series debut in Crusaders of the Lost Mark.

Development and design

According to former writer Amy Keating Rogers, Spoiled Rich had several prior names in production, including "Married Rich" and "Stuck Up Rich".[1] She was designed by Rebecca Dart, Kora Kosicka, Fernanda Ribeiro, and Charmaine Verhagen.[2]

On April 26, 2016, Jim Miller was asked "Are Diamond Tiara's parents divorced?" and replied "Not that I'm aware of."[3]

Depiction in the series

Spoiled Rich is first alluded to by Babs Seed in the episode One Bad Apple, where she threatens to tell Diamond Tiara's and Silver Spoon's mothers about their bad attitudes.

In Crusaders of the Lost Mark, Apple Bloom first mentions her by name, mentioning that she is head of the school board. After Diamond Tiara loses the election for school president, she goes home to find her mother berating her for losing. She displays a patronizing attitude towards ponies with a lower social standing than her family's, and has no qualms about calling the Cutie Mark Crusaders "blank flanks" among other derogatory terms.

During the songs The Pony I Want to Be and Light of Your Cutie Mark, Diamond Tiara's condescending nature towards her classmates is shown to be the result of Spoiled Rich's dictatorial parenting, as well as her fear of her and Filthy Rich's disapproval.

When Diamond Tiara comes to the Ponyville Schoolhouse with the Crusaders during a school board meeting, Spoiled Rich once again accosts her daughter for fraternizing with "confused, insignificant lowlifes". However, Diamond Tiara stands up to her for controlling her life and forces her to deliver Filthy Rich a school donation request, causing Spoiled Rich to back down.

In season six, Spoiled Rich appears alongside Diamond Tiara depicted as a literary character in A Hearth's Warming Tail. In Applejack's "Day" Off, she has a brief speaking role while waiting to use the Ponyville Day Spa steam room. In Where the Apple Lies, Spoiled Rich appears in flashback, where her maiden name is revealed to be "Spoiled Milk".

In season seven, Spoiled is mentioned in It Isn't the Mane Thing About You when Rich buys her flowers from Daisy, Lily Valley, and Rose. Rich later returns them, having learned that Spoiled only likes purple flowers.

In the season eight episode Grannies Gone Wild, Spoiled Rich makes a brief cameo appearance riding a hot air balloon away from Las Pegasus.
