Depiction in Rainbow Rocks
Noteworthy is a playable character in Gameloft's mobile game, with the description "Noteworthy is an Earth pony with a cutie mark of two pairs of backwards-facing eighth notes. He is very helpful and remembers everything!" An in-game advertisement misidentified him as Parish Nandermane.
Noteworthy has a major supporting role in Discord and the Ponyville Players Dramarama. He acts as the stage manager of the community musical and is the most suspicious of Discord. Later, when some chaos occurs on stage, Noteworthy is the first to point an accusing hoof at Discord, and Discord immediately suspects Noteworthy of framing him. Later, when it turns out not to be Noteworthy, Discord apologizes to him at the cast party.
MerchandiseNoteworthy appears in the third and ninth waves of mystery pack toys, being of the same pony kind and bearing the same coat color and mane color as the unnamed character on the show. The toy's cutie mark is slightly different, being three single quavers instead of the two pairs of two beamed quavers. The toy's eye color is blue, in contrast to the show's brown, and its pose and mane style are the same as the Big McIntosh mystery pack toy mold. According to the third wave's European mystery pack collector card, Noteworthy "is so helpful." Much like the other male pony mystery pack toys, some of the non-English product descriptions use the feminine grammatical gender. Both waves' U.S. mystery pack collector cards list the name with a trademark symbol and state that Noteworthy "is very helpful and remembers everything!" A November 6, 2013 "vorläufige Abbildung" image for mystery packs depicts him with one of the same designs and the same eye color as in the show.
Noteworthy also appears with his name listed with a trademark symbol in Enterplay's collectible card game, which is the first time that he is simultaneously referred to by name and depicted with one of the same designs and the same eye color as in the show. His Gen Con Indy 2013 demo card attributes to him the quote "Sometimes you gotta just keep plugging away until something sticks." His card α #76 C gives him the description "As three-time winner of the Equestrian Hum Off, nopony can hum a tune like Noteworthy!" Both show him with an alternate tail style as in Winter Wrap Up.
- Over a Barrel
- Braeburn: And as you can see, we have all of the finest comforts. Like horse-drawn carriages!
- "Black Stone": Okay, you pull now.
- Noteworthy: Aww, we just switched.
- For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils
- Noteworthy: I liked some of those lines you said.
- Sweetie Belle: Oh, really? Which ones?
- Noteworthy: Uh, I don't really remember, but you were wearing a pink taffeta dress with lots of chiffon when you said them! Whoo-ee, that outfit was a dazzler!
- Lemon Hearts: I liked that one almost as much as the one with the lacy trim and all the embroidered cuffs! [chuckles]
- Noteworthy: That was a nice one too!
- Discord and the Ponyville Players Dramarama
- Noteworthy: You're always holding us up. We can't even run through a whole number without you adding your own flair one way or another. If you ask me, I think you're trying to sabotage this show!
- Discord: Don't insult me, pony. If I wanted to do that, I could do a lot more than sing a few extra parts. I'm the king of chaos, remember?
- Noteworthy: Then what are you doing here? Why would somepony as powerful as you want to be in a small-town musical?
- "Sometimes you gotta just keep plugging away until something sticks."
