Ace Point, or simply Ace, is a male Earth pony introduced in Call of the Cutie who has been identified as the fourth best tennis player in Equestria. He has a light tan coat, brown mane and tail, dark blue eyes, and a cutie mark of either "TENNNIS" balls or a picture of him punching a shark.​[​dubious – discuss‍​]​ He is unnamed in the show, but he is named in merchandise and other media.

On March 31, 2011, art director Ridd Sorensen stated regarding his designing of Ace Point that Call of the Cutie's "script called for a rather unimpressed 'Tennis Pony', so [he] thought it'd be funny to go in a 70's/Royal Tenenbaums kinda direction" and that "[t]he original version [...] had chest hair that was deemed too 'human like', so [he] changed it to fur."[6] Part of Ace Point's name was previously used[7] for a G1 Earth pony boy. Ace Point being the fourth best tennis player in Equestria was stated by Ridd Sorensen​[​citation needed​]​ before Top Trumps. Ace Point's cutie mark, hidden by clothing, has been specified by Ridd Sorensen differently in early April and late May, respectively, of 2011.[1][2][3]​[​dubious – discuss‍​]​
