Featherweight is a school-age Pegasus colt and a friend of the Cutie Mark Crusaders who is seen in the episodes Ponyville Confidential, Flight to the Finish, and Twilight Time. He has brown mane color, a short brown tail, and a cream coat. His cutie mark is a feather. The name Featherweight refers to his gaunt stature and slight build. It is also taken from one of the lighter weight classes in amateur and professional boxing.

Development

According to the writer M. A. Larson, Featherweight was originally called "Milquetoast", and he was the little brother of the previous Foal Free Press editor-in-chief Namby-Pamby.[1]

Appearances

In Ponyville Confidential, Featherweight is revealed to have newly earned his cutie mark, a white feather. The Cutie Mark Crusaders are upset with this, wondering how he could get his cutie mark before they did.

Featherweight later shows up in the meeting for the staff of the Foal Free Press, the school's newspaper. He dashes out of the meeting to "document everything" as a photographer, after Diamond Tiara, who is the new Editor-in-chief for the school newspaper, orders him to do so. Later on, he helps Sweetie Belle and the other Cutie Mark Crusaders by taking a photo of Snips and Snails who managed to entangle themselves in gum and stick themselves to one another, which is later used in the school newspaper.

When "Gabby Gums", that is, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, say they are going to quit their job with the school newspaper, Diamond Tiara shows them embarrassing pictures of themselves in an attempt to blackmail them into continuing their job, taken by Featherweight in his efforts to "document everything." Featherweight, who had been watching the discussion through the window, smiles sheepishly and waves at the Crusaders.

Featherweight later becomes the Editor-in-chief of the Foal Free Press, after Diamond Tiara has her position revoked by Cheerilee because she had been abusing her power.

Featherweight also appears very briefly in Flight to the Finish, beside Rumble. He appears again a few times in Twilight Time, most notably when taking photographs of Twilight Sparkle and the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
