Fancy Pants is a male unicorn of Canterlot high society who is introduced in the episode Sweet and Elite. Rarity describes him as the most important pony in Canterlot. His entourage frequently change their opinions to agree with his own.


Development and design

Fancy Pants has a similar body design to Shining Armor, Prince Blueblood, Blue Moon, "Chocolate Sun", "South Pole", and "Star Dream / Sky Dream", with a white coat, protruding chest, and an exceptionally large horn. Ironically, Fancy Pants doesn't wear any pants; his name comes from an informal term that means overly elaborate, swanky or pretentious. His voice actor, Trevor Devall, recalls being instructed to make Fancy Pants sound like John Cleese.[1]

Fancy Pants with Fleur Dis Lee

Fancy Pants first appears in Sweet and Elite when Rarity bumps into him and Fleur Dis Lee while walking through the streets of Canterlot. She instantly recognizes him as "the most important pony in Canterlot" and apologizes for running into him. He takes an interest in her when she mentions she is staying at Canterlot Castle by an invitation from Princess Celestia and invites her to his private box at the upcoming Wonderbolts Derby. He becomes more interested in Rarity after she correctly predicts the winner of the derby, and insists that she must be extremely important after she lies about knowing the trainer of the Wonderbolts, which she claims is Rainbow Dash.

He is featured in Rarity's song montage, as well as in many of the social events. He also appears in a flying yacht, wearing a captain's uniform.

Later on, Fancy Pants greets Rarity at a garden party next to the room where Twilight Sparkle's birthday party is taking place. Rarity's friends crash the event when Twilight "realizes" that Rarity wants to attend it, and subsequently offend many of the upper class ponies with their raucous partying. While Twilight is dancing to music, Fancy Pants stops her to ask about the dress she is wearing, which Rarity had made but never finished. Twilight announces that Rarity is the designer, and Fancy Pants is again impressed with her. He comments that "every mare in Canterlot will be wanting one," showing his influence when other ponies accordingly begin to say that they would like similar dresses.

He is seen with Rarity at the end of A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2.

Season five

Fancy Pants helping Spike S5E10

Fancy Pants helping Spike rebuild the statue.

Fancy Pants appears as a host representative of Canterlot for the Grand Equestria Pony Summit in the episode Princess Spike. He attempts to get special privileges for the event from Twilight Sparkle, but Spike—acting on Twilight's behalf—declines his request. When Spike's decisions cause a chain reaction of disasters around Canterlot, Fancy Pants leads a mob of ponies to confront Twilight over her apparent mistakes. After Spike claims responsibility for the mess and apologizes for his actions, Fancy Pants and the other delegates forgive him by helping him reassemble a gemstone statue representing each city from Equestria. He also makes a background appearance with Fleur Dis Lee in Amending Fences.

Personality

Fancy Pants is typically cool and well-composed. When Rarity meets him by accidentally slamming into him, he plays off the encounter with a joke. His interest is piqued by her association with Princess Celestia and good taste. At the Wonderbolts Derby, he is impressed with Rarity's charm, skill, and connections when she correctly predicts the winner and claims to personally know the Wonderbolts' trainer, declaring her his new favorite party guest.

Fancy Pants also expresses an interest in Rarity's simple, half-finished, but well-executed dress that Twilight wears to the Canterlot Garden Party, even before learning that Rarity made it. In addition, he finds the rest of Rarity's friends to be "charmingly rustic," even though Jet Set and Upper Crust initially dismiss them.

In Princess Spike, he displays a pride in Canterlot and magnanimity when his request for special privileges during the Grand Equestria Pony Summit is refused. When it appears that Twilight made a series of terrible summit decisions, Fancy Pants becomes angry out of a desire to maintain Canterlot's reputation.
