Bittersweet[2] and Leadwing[3] are two background ponies, the former a female unicorn and the latter a male Earth pony, who appear in Princess Spike and the IDW comics. Bittersweet has a lime green coat, gold mane, blue-green eyes, and a cutie mark of a speech bubble with a heart inside. Leadwing has a blue coat, deep blue mane, dark blue eyes, and a cutie mark of a pencil with bat wings. They are the respective original characters of IDW Publishing writer Katie Cook and artist Andy Price.

Development and design

Bittersweet is an original character of Katie Cook, a writer for IDW Publishing.[4][5] She has a similar color scheme to 'Lorne'. Leadwing is an original character of Andy Price, an artist for IDW Publishing.[6][7][8][9] He shares his color scheme with S05E05 Unnamed Pegasus Stallion #1. They are the seventh and eighth original characters to appear in the show, preceded by Holly Dash, Wild Fire, Midnight Strike, Peachy Pitt, Stellar Eclipse, and "Whoa Nelly".

An image of Bittersweet and Leadwing's in-show appearance was previewed in an animation image shown at Ponycon NYC on February 16, 2015.[10] Their Friends Forever Issue #18 appearance is at least somewhat comparable to Greta and Grampa Gruff's Friends Forever Issue #24 appearance.

Depiction in the series

In the show, Bittersweet and Leadwing first appear in the season five episode Princess Spike as delegates at the Grand Equestria Pony Summit, Bittersweet being a delegate for DeTrot.[1] The two have no lines of dialogue, but they are among the summit delegates prominently featured. Bittersweet also briefly appears outside the Manehattan train station in Made in Manehattan.
