The Boy Bullies are a group of up to three male Pegasi, including Hoops, Dumb-Bell, and Score, who have picked on Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy, calling them respectively "Rainbow Crash" and "Klutzershy". The three first appear as grown stallions in the season one episode Sonic Rainboom, and they make varying appearances as stallions and colts in later episodes, chapter books, and IDW comics. The two other than Hoops are not named in the show, the three's collective title being given in the guidebook The Elements of Harmony and "Dumb-Bell" and "Score" being placeholder names.

Designs

Unlike most other heavily-built stallions, their hooves as grown stallions have not become visible as being different colors than their coats. Their manes all cover their eyes to varying degrees: Hoops has a mane style that covers his eyes completely as a grown stallion and partially as a colt, "Dumb-Bell" has a mane style that covers his eyes partially as both a grown stallion and a colt, and "Score" has a mane style that covers his eyes completely as both a grown stallion and a colt.

Hoops has a similar color scheme to Cheese Sandwich, similar coat and mane colors to Caramel and Doctor Horse, and similar coat and eye colors to Golden Delicious and Cherry Fizzy. "Dumb-Bell" has the same colt design as "Chip Mint" and similar coat and mane colors to Sealed Scroll. "Score" has the same cutie mark as Hondo Flanks.

Depiction in the series

Season one

The bullies make fun of Rainbow Dash S1E16

Hoops and "Dumb-Bell" make fun of Rainbow Dash.

In Sonic Rainboom, as Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy return to Cloudsdale for the Best Young Flyer competition, Hoops, "Dumb-Bell", and "Score" meet up with them as they arrive and start teasing Rainbow on how she got kicked out of Flight School, how she supposedly doesn't have a chance on winning the competition, and how the sonic rainboom is supposedly an old mare's tale, which really brings Rainbow down. A short time after Rainbow's friends arrive to Cloudsdale and have been touring the weather factory, the three stallions admire Rarity's new wings that were made by Twilight Sparkle. After they witness Rainbow Dash saving the Wonderbolts and Rarity and subsequently winning the competition, they start to gain respect for Rainbow, and apologize to her for giving her a hard time, and they ask Rainbow if she can hang out with them, but Rainbow rejects their offer to hang out with the Wonderbolts.

In The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Hoops and "Dumb-Bell" appear as colts in Fluttershy's and Rainbow Dash's flashbacks, Hoops already having his cutie mark and "Dumb-Bell" not yet having his. In Fluttershy's flashback, after she attempts to fly but fails, the two young colts start to harass Fluttershy of not being able to fly, only to be stood up to by Rainbow Dash (or Rainbow Crash as they call her). Rainbow decides to challenge the two bullies in a race, but while racing, "Dumb-Bell" crashes into a column and Hoops gets spun out, and right after, Rainbow Dash preforms a sonic rainboom and earns her cutie mark.

Season four

In Trade Ya!, Hoops appears as a colt in the present day at the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange.

Season five

Hoops offering to help Fluttershy S5E25

Hoops and Dumb-Bell in The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 1.

They briefly make fun of Gilda for not flying at flight camp, but Rainbow Dash stands up for her. The credits name Hoops as in previous materials.
