Maud Pie is a female Earth pony and Pinkie Pie's older sister. She is first seen as a filly in a portrait in Pinkie Pride, she appears in person as a grown mare in the season four episode of the same name, and her human counterpart makes cameo appearances in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks; both counterparts also appear in IDW comics. She is called Maud Rock Pie in some merchandise.

Development and design

With her single eyelash on each eye, Maud shares her eye design with many female Crystal Ponies.

Her name is a play on mud pie, a popular dessert that originated in the state of Mississippi.

Maud's cutie mark is a rock cut into a diamond-like shape, closely resembling the shape of Tom the rock. Though usually hidden under her frock, it's briefly visible when she rescues Pinkie from the boulder in the episode Maud Pie, and is also visible in Hasbro, some Enterplay, and some WeLoveFine merchandise. In the show, it resembles Tom's usual form, while in merchandise, its shape more closely resembles Rarity's Discord-influenced vision of Tom as a diamond.

Maud's name is (mis)spelled as "Maude" in an April Fools' Day 2013 tweet by Meghan McCarthy,[2] in the IDW comics' My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special, and in the script[3][4] for Make New Friends but Keep Discord, and as "Mod" in closed captioning for Gauntlet of Fire.

On December 1, 2014, when asked if "Maud is an Apple too," Maud's voice actress Ingrid Nilson stated that "all will be revealed soon. #MLPS5"[5]

Depiction in the series

Season one

In The Cutie Mark Chronicles, Pinkie Pie refers to her sisters collectively, which technically includes Maud despite her not appearing in Pinkie's flashback.

Season four

Maud first appears as a filly in Pinkie Pride, in a photograph of the first party Pinkie Pie had ever thrown.

At the beginning of the episode Maud Pie, Pinkie Pie speaks at length about her close relationship with Maud and their tradition of trading rock candy necklaces. She describes Maud as sharing interests with her friends, such as Rarity's love of fashion, Applejack's honesty, and Twilight's fondness for books.

Pinkie and her sister Maud...and Gummy.

When Maud arrives in Ponyville and meets Pinkie's friends, the ponies are surprised by her eccentricities, overall lack of enthusiasm bordering on apathy, and strange taste in games. She also has a pet rock named Boulder.

Each of Pinkie's friends attempt to befriend Maud, but her odd tastes and interests at times clash with theirs. She prefers plain, sometimes muddy fashion choices over Rarity's lavish dresses, is more interested in rocks than Fluttershy's many animal friends, writes her own rock-themed poetry, and is honest to the point of bluntness.

When the ponies tell Pinkie that they can't connect with Maud the way she has, Pinkie puts together a large obstacle course that incorporates all of their interests as a bonding activity. When Pinkie demonstrates how the course is run and inadvertently puts herself in harm's way, Maud springs into action and displays incredible speed and tremendous physical strength by smashing a giant boulder to bits. It's with this feat that the others realize the extremes Maud would go for her sister, and are able to befriend Maud over their shared love of Pinkie.

As Pinkie and her friends see Maud off and exchange rock candy necklaces, Maud smiles, saying that while she doesn't really like candy, she does love Pinkie Pie.

Season five

Maud Pie appears in Make New Friends but Keep Discord as Pinkie Pie's guest to the Grand Galloping Gala. During Discord's stand-up comedy routine, she makes a snide remark that earns the other guests' laughter.

Maud and the rest of her family return in Hearthbreakers. In a few scenes, she has some bonding time with Apple Bloom.

In The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 1, Maud appears in an alternate timeline as one of Princess Celestia's soldiers in a war against King Sombra.

Season six

In the episode The Gift of the Maud Pie, Maud meets Pinkie Pie in Manehattan to celebrate their yearly "Pie Sisters' Surprise Swap Day", in which they spend the day sightseeing together and exchange gifts at sundown. Throughout her stay in Manehattan, Maud mostly expresses interest in rock-related things, and she briefly demonstrates a talent for ice skating.

During the gift exchange, Maud gives Pinkie a cardboard container of cupcake-scented confetti, and she receives a special rock pouch to carry her pet Boulder in. However, when she learns that Pinkie acquired the pouch in exchange for her precious party cannon, Maud returns the pouch to get the cannon back. She also tells Pinkie that no matter what she receives for Pie Sisters' Surprise Swap Day, she'll cherish it as long as it is given out of love.

In Gauntlet of Fire, Rarity alludes to Maud.

Depiction in films

Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

Maud in Rainbow Rocks.

The human counterpart of Maud appears in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks during a slumber party held by the Rainbooms. She is seen in the kitchen of Pinkie Pie's house getting Boulder something to "eat." Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer share their disbelief that she is related to Pinkie. She briefly appears again in the crowd at the end of the film when Trixie makes her getaway.

Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree

In the Legend of Everfree blooper reel, Maud's human counterpart appears in the scene where Sunset Shimmer speaks with Flash Sentry. She takes the small pebble that Sunset picks up, revealed to be Boulder, and feeds him crackers while walking off-screen.

Other depictions

Chapter books

Maud is first individually mentioned in the chapter book Pinkie Pie and the Rockin' Ponypalooza Party!, referred to not by name but simply as "your older sister" by Pinkie's father Igneous Rock.

She also attends opening night of The Singing Stallion in Discord and the Ponyville Players Dramarama.

IDW comics

Comic 20 Hot Topic cover
In the IDW comics, Maud appears on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #20's Hot Topic cover, on Friendship is Magic Issue #23's Hot Topic cover, in Friends Forever Issue #9, in Friendship is Magic Issue #37, and on Friendship is Magic Issue #41 pages 17-18.

In My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #29, Maud teams up with Rarity to explore a newly discovered cave system in the hopes of boosting her academic career. Over the course of the adventure, Maud remains her usually stoic self, but it is revealed that she expresses herself more openly in her diary.

In the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special comic, Maud's human counterpart appears on pages 9 and 48.

My Little Pony mobile game

Maud Pie has been featured in the mobile game as of Version 2.0.0. Maud Pie can only be acquired by chance or sale, as she is not available in either the store or the Balloon Pop mini-game. Her in-game description states, "Maud Pie and her pet Boulder have a rocky start when they first come to Ponyville (rock poetry is not for everypony), but her love for her younger sister Pinkie Pie shows the others she's one rock-solid pony!"

Merchandise

A Toys "R" Us exclusive Ponymania brushable toy of Maud Rock Pie was leaked in March 2015.[6][7][8][9]

In the Enterplay collectible card game's 2-player starter set Rock & Rave, ƒ1, a card of Maud Pie, lists her name with a trademark symbol and gives her the descriptions "Maud Pie is working on her Rocktorate in Rock Science"[10][11] and "Maud is destined to some day be one of Equestria's leading Rocktologists!"[12] In the Crystal Games expansion set, cards #Pƒ2, #25 R, and #ƒ12 of Maud list the quote "Rocks don't move. Sometimes, I don't move. So, sometimes, I'm like a rock." and cards #112 R and ƒ39, "Poetry Slam," attribute to Maud the quote "Rock. There are many words for you. Stone. Pebble. Boulder. Gravel. Rubble..."

Maud Pie appears on My Little Pony Maud Pie Expressing T-Shirt and on the WeLoveFine T-shirts "I Wanna Rock!" (fan-designed) and "Maud Pie."

Personality

Maud is often depicted with a blank neutral facial expression with her eyes half-closed. She has a tendency to talk in a rather monotonous and dry tone of voice. She rarely smiles with exceptions being the end of her eponymous episode, near the end of Hearthbreakers where she shares a moment with Apple Bloom and Boulder and the end of The Gift of the Maud Pie.

In addition, Maud is shown to have a deep knowledge and fascination with rocks. Despite her typically flat demeanor, she shows a deep concern for Pinkie Pie when her life is put in apparent danger.

She also appears to share some of Pinkie's characteristics, such as claiming to have an intuition known as "Maud Sense", and at two points in The Gift of the Maud Pie, she tends to disappear from one space and appear in another.
