Filthy Rich is a male Earth pony and Diamond Tiara's father. He is introduced in the episode Family Appreciation Day. His name is based on the phrase filthy rich, meaning "very wealthy."

Depiction in the series

Season two

According to Granny Smith's tale in Family Appreciation Day, his grandfather, Stinkin' Rich, was one of the first ponies to buy Granny Smith's zap apple jam, and started a business by reselling it. In the same episode, it was told that this had helped contribute to the foundation of Ponyville.

In the same episode, Filthy Rich appears at Sweet Apple Acres to politely confirm he will receive the first one hundred jars of zap apple jam from Granny Smith, "as usual".  As they walk off-screen, Granny asks him how his father is doing. He is later seen giving a presentation about "Rich's Barnyard Bargains" to Apple Bloom's class that bores most of the class to sleep except for Twist and Diamond Tiara. He is again seen at the end of the episode sternly pushing a reluctant Diamond Tiara to Sweet Apple Acres to help other fillies sing to the water in the watering cans, part of Granny Smith's special process of making zap apple jam. Despite being a rich business pony and his daughter's mean spirit, Filthy is amicable to Apple Bloom, Granny Smith and everypony else.

When Granny Smith calls him by his first name, he explains that he prefers "Rich". Cheerilee initially calls him "Mr. Filthy"; after he looks chidingly at her she immediately corrects herself, and he regains his usual easy going and calm appearance.

Season four

In Pinkie Pride, Diamond Tiara refers to him in the song Pinkie the Party Planner.

Filthy Rich appears in Testing Testing 1, 2, 3 as Rainbow Dash depressingly flies over him as he buys a whole crate of apples from Big McIntosh.

Filthy Rich appears in Inspiration Manifestation next to his daughter Diamond Tiara at the fair.

Season five

In Slice of Life, Filthy Rich is among the ponies DJ Pon-3 and Octavia Melody crash into with a mobile DJ booth. He also appears at Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda's wedding.

In Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?, Filthy Rich appears in Ponyville's shared dream offering money to the Tantabus in exchange for his safety. He later uses bits to assist Princess Luna in stopping the Tantabus from escaping into the real world.

In Crusaders of the Lost Mark, Filthy Rich makes a physical appearance during Light of Your Cutie Mark, alongside his wife, Spoiled Rich, where he appears to disapprove of Diamond Tiara's behavior. Later in the episode, Diamond Tiara has Spoiled Rich send a note to him, and he contributes enough money to help restore the school playground.
