Depiction in the seriesEdit
This pony has background appearances in many episodes, as well as two speaking roles. Although his coat is blue in The Best Night Ever, he is gray in many of his other appearances. In Winter Wrap Up, Lucky Clover appears a background pony several times as one of the ponies clearing snow. He appears a couple of times carrying snow away in a carriage in the city. He also appears several times manning a snowplow at Sweet Apple Acres to help clear the snow. A Pegasus version of Lucky Clover appears as contestant number eight in Sonic Rainboom in the Best Young Flyer competition mingling with others and then listening to the pony calling out the contestants.In The Best Night Ever, a version of Lucky Clover appears with a light blue coat. He and Caramel are flattered by Rarity, and convinced into carrying their carriage to the Grand Galloping Gala. Later on, when Spike tries to get them to walk faster, Lucky Clover angrily says to Spike shaking his hoof in the air, "if you weren't friends with our neighbor, Rarity... Huh!"
He appears as one of the judges in the race in Sisterhooves Social, and he is also the pony that gives the two winners their Ribbon at the end of the competition. He is seen here wearing a referee shirt. During The Wonderbolts Derby in Sweet and Elite, Lucky Clover is the pony that waved the checkered flag both to commence the race, and to mark the ending of it. Here, he is again seen wearing a referee shirt. To start the race, he gave a sharp blow of his whistle and waved the flag downwards in one quick motion. While the racers were crossing the finish line, he casually waves the flag back and forth to signify the ending of the race.In A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1 during a flashback to Twilight Sparkle's childhood, Lucky Clover is seen in Canterlot arguing with Wild Fire about whether or not Wild Fire can get another hooficure; Lucky Clover didn't want her to get one because he had already "paid for three [that] month." After Princess Cadance casts a love spell on them, they stop arguing and look into each other’s' eyes. Later in the episode, he appears in the Canterlot Castle kitchen. In The Crystal Empire - Part 1, Lucky Clover is among the ponies at the Crystal Fair when Rainbow Dash flies back to the Crystal Empire castle with the flag.
VariantsEditSome background pony variants using Lucky Clover's basic design exist. They are included in the appearances table below. These include Lucky Clover's appearance in The Best Night Ever, when he is seen with a blue coat. Another example occurs in Sonic Rainboom, when a pegasus version of Lucky Clover is present in the Best Young Flyer competition. Finally, this also includes his presence in Hearth's Warming Eve, when he, along with several other ponies, is seen in the play with a lighter coat and with makeup around his eyes.
There are several pony variants that use Lucky Clover's basic design, but are considered different ponies. In Over a Barrel and The Last Roundup, a mustached pony ("Shamrock") who otherwise resembles Lucky Clover in every way is shown in Appleloosa and Dodge Junction. In Putting Your Hoof Down, a pony with the same color scheme and cutie mark is shown walking in the background, but with a different mane style and different eye color. In The Mysterious Mare Do Well, another mustached pony ("Pine Breeze") seen staring at Rainbow Dash appears with the same color scheme, but with a different cutie mark and different mane style.
