DJ Pon-3 or Vın̈yl Scratch[note 1] are the fan-given names of a unicorn pony who performs as a disc jockey in Suited For Success and A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2. The character also appears in the "There's a Pony For That" commercial and other promotional material.

Design

Color

While DJ Pon-3's coat appears white in her first scene, a layout artist on the show noted that the character model's coat color is actually a very pale yellow, specifically the 24-bit hex triplet #FEFDE7.[2] This is more clearly seen in the episode, "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2". Her coat color in the DJ Pinkie Pie game is the same, while her Playful Ponies toy is white. Her eye color is also revealed in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2 to be Moderate cerise, the same as that of Rainbow Dash.

Cutie mark

DJ Pon-3's cutie mark is the mirror image of two bridged eighth notes. It appears as such on the show, on a trading card, and on websites (all showing the left side of her body)[3], but appears non-mirrored (when showing the right side of her body) on her toy[4] and on websites[5].

Depiction in the series

During the opening of Rarity's first fashion show in Suited For Success, a unicorn pony wearing purple tinted sunglasses appears for a brief three-second moment, operating a turntable with her unicorn magic. During the post-wedding party in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, Pinkie Pie pulls her from under the turntable and they spin the vinyls. She briefly lifts her glasses before closing her eyes and nodding to the beat.

DJ's name is mentioned in the Equestria Girls commercial where it is pronounced "Dee jay pon-three." The video also references bronies and other online Friendship is Magic phenomena. Her name was later spelled in the "There's a Pony For That" commercial.


Her brief appearance at a turntable in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2 was featured in several advertisements[6] and other promotional material, such as a computer wallpaper. One of the Flash assets on The Hub's website depicts her, when the Flash file is decompiled and its assets are rearranged, with magenta irises underneath her purple-pink glasses,[7] prior to their appearance in the show. One of the backgrounds on Hasbro's Pony Wedding site depicts her with the same eye color.[8]

Merchandise

The DJ Pon-3 Toy part of the Toys 'R' Us exclusive Favorite Collection, coming to stores Fall 2012

On 11 February 2012, Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page announced that a DJ Pon-3 toy would come out in Fall 2012, as part of a Toys 'R' Us exclusive pack, later revealed to be part of the Toys 'R' Us exclusive Collector Series and to be named the Friendship Is Magic Favorite Collection Featuring Nightmare Moon. In the initial announcement, DJ Pon-3 was called a "fan favorite."[9]

DJ Pon-3, along with a host of characters from the show, appears on the Comic Con 2011 promotional poster.

Second party

Base collectable trading card #27 of 84 is DJ Pon-3 & Octavia, with the description "DJ Pon-3 and Octavia may both be at the top of their musical games, but their careers are very, very different! You can find Octavia at garden parties and galas performing prim and proper classical music on her cello. On the other hoof, DJ Pon-3 feels at home behind her turntable, laying down sick beats and wearing her trademark sunglasses. Are these two bitter rivals, or are they long time friends? Will they ever perform a duet? Only time will tell!"

WeLoveFine sells several fan-designed T-shirts and other merchandise featuring DJ Pon-3, the titles of which sometimes refer to her as Vinyl Scratch.

Notes

  1. The trademarked spelling "DJ Pon-3" is used in the 2012 trading cards and in Hasbro's announcement of the 2012 Toys R Us exclusive Collector Series toyline. Previously, in the There's a Pony For That commercial, The Hub used the spelling "DJ Pon3". "Vın̈yl Scratch" is the name that was used at the Hasbro booth at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2012. Alternate spellings and names fall under coverage of the fan community and require reliable third-party sources.
