Zipporwhill is a Pegasus filly who first appears in the season four episode Filli Vanilli. She has a light yellow coat, an amber mane and tail, light green eyes, and a cutie mark of three paw prints.


Zipporwhill's name is a play on the bird(s) whip-poor-will; Amy Keating Rogers, the writer of Filli Vanilli, "thought if she was zipping as she flew she'd be a 'Zippoorwhill.'"[1] The spelling "Zippoorwhill" was used in the script by Rogers, but the spelling "Zipporwhill" is used in the credits; Rogers has stated regarding this, "if the credits say Zipporwhill, go with that[,]"[2] and the spelling "Zipporwhill" has since been used both for Gameloft's mobile game and for Enterplay trading card series 3 card #E79.

Zipporwhill speaks with a slight Latin American accent.

Depiction in the series

Zipporwhill appears in the season four episode Filli Vanilli. She attends the Ponyville Pet Center fundraiser with her father Nightjar. There, she watches the Pony Tones perform and adopts a puppy for a pet. Following the performance, Zipporwhill and Nightjar approach the Pony Tones and ask them to perform at Zipporwhill's cute-ceañera the next day. Though Rarity initially declines because of such short notice, Fluttershy convinces her to accept so that they don't disappoint Zipporwhill. The Pony Tones perform at the cute-ceañera the next day, much to Zipporwhill's excited delight.

In the season seven episode Forever Filly, Zipporwhill gets help from the Cutie Mark Crusaders to reconnect with her pet dog Ripley, having received her cutie mark on the same day she adopted him. With Sweetie Belle's help, Zipporwhill comes to terms with the fact that the puppy she adopted is now a full-grown dog.

In the season nine episode The Last Crusade, Zipporwhill and Ripley are in attendance at the CMC Appreciation Day ceremony.

In the season's final episode The Last Problem, Zipporwhill briefly appears in Rarity's group shot during The Magic of Friendship Grows.
