Comet Tail is a male background unicorn pony who appears in several episodes throughout the series. He has a light yellow coat, blue mane and eyes, and a shooting star cutie mark. The show does not name him, referring to him only as "Boy Pony" in the credits of Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2, but he is named in merchandise and other media.

He shares his mane style, eye color, and cutie mark design and partly colors with Stormfeather, his design with "Written Script", Rare Find, and Bright Bulb, and his mane style with "Chocolate Haze", "Klein", Emerald Green, and "Silver Script". He also shares his name with a G3 Earth pony mare.

Other depictions

Chapter books

Daring Do and the Forbidden City of Clouds refers to a stallion called Comet Tail the Starry-Eyed: "An ancient sorcerer and astronomer, he was the founding member of the Magical Counsel of the Ancients. Comet Tail was responsible for linking the power of the Half-Gilded Horseshoe to the Halo of Cirrostrata."

Starlight Glimmer and the Secret Suite frequently mentions "Comet Tail's Curse", a magical yet believed-to-be-imaginary affliction in which unicorns are permanently stripped of their magic if they try to alter another wizard's magic and leave it incomplete.

My Little Pony (mobile game)

Comet Tail is a playable character in Gameloft's mobile game. His in-game description states, "With a tail that never fails, Comet Tail's a unicorn that's out of this world!"

Merchandise

Blind Bag Comet Tail
Comet Tail is named with a trademark symbol in the eighth wave of mystery pack toys and collector cards.[1] The toy uses the Shining Armor mold but features Comet Tail's color scheme and cutie mark, and even the art on the collector card uses a recolored Shining Armor vector. The card states that Comet Tail "runs so fast that he looks like a shooting star!"

Comet Tail is also named with a trademark symbol in Enterplay's collectible card game. The card game is the first time that he is simultaneously referred to by name and depicted with the same design as in the show. His card α #54 C gives him the description "Comet is an expert at using his magic to speed himself up and run really, REALLY fast. He's NOT an expert at using his magic to slow back down."[2] His The Crystal Games expansion set card #7 C lists the quote "If I'm going down, I'm going down running!" His Absolute Discord expansion set card #43 C attributes to Cherry Berry the quote "He ran RIGHT into one of those giant black vines while practicing that speed-up magic of his! I don't think he'll ever learn..." Absolute Discord expansion set card #184 C, Plunderseeds in Ponyville, shows him and Cherry Berry as in Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2 and attributes to him the quote "Definitely not my idea of a good time."

On the DVD Season Four Disc 1, the closed captions for the episode Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2 refer to Comet Tail by name.
