Lauren Faust stated that Celestia's nephew had no name in the show (before The Best Night Ever aired), and that he's the "great great great great great great great great great great great (and probably even more greats) nephew on Celestia's and Luna's mother's side, about 52 times removed, roughly speaking." He was originally a Duke but was changed to a Prince per Hasbro's request.
Depiction in the seriesEdit
Prince Blueblood first appears in Rarity's fantasy in The Ticket Master, where she envisions him as a nephew of Princess Celestia in her dream, they swiftly fall in love and marry. In The Best Night Ever, Rarity meets Prince Blueblood in person at the Grand Galloping Gala and he appears physically the same. Rarity expects him to court her as he did in her dream, but instead, he treats her with very little respect at all as during the night:
- Rarity expects Prince Blueblood to give her a rose, but he takes it for himself.
- He brings a cushion only for himself to sit in the castle's yard, leaving Rarity without a comfortable seat.
- He expects Rarity to open the door for him.
- He makes Rarity use her shawl to cover a puddle so he doesn't get dirty.
- He expects her to pay for his dinner.
- He inconsiderately dispraises Applejack's food in presence of her
- When Applejack's cake is catapulted across the room at him, he uses Rarity as a shield so that he won't get dirty.
In sum, Prince Blueblood appears used to being treated like royalty and chivalry is foreign to him.Throughout the entire Grand Galloping Gala, Rarity tries to make pleasant company with Blueblood, but his self-centered nature drives her to the point of extreme irritation. After he uses her to shield himself from an incoming cake, Rarity finally snaps and tells him off as the most "uncharming prince she's ever met", and shakes the cake all over him in retaliation. After the Gala descends into chaos, Rarity and her friends leave the scene, but she loses her glass slipper when running down a set of stairs. Pinkie Pie suggests that now her prince is sure to find her; panic-stricken at the thought, Rarity smashes the slipper and runs off.
During Magical Mystery Cure, Prince Blueblood appears in one of Rarity's flashbacks.
MerchandiseEditBlueblood is part of the trading card set: his card says he's Celestia's nephew, and that his family link to Luna and Celestia is "far removed". "You could call Prince Blueblood the most eligible unicorn bachelor in Canterlot, but you'll stop as soon as you meet this royal pain."
Blueblood appears in a story from the French My Little Pony magazine. In this story, he is referred to as Vladímir, although it is inconsistent with his original name which has been also retained in the show's French dub.
