Raindrops in Boast Busters
| Cutie mark|
Depiction in the seriesEdit
Raindrops appears in the show as a background pony. She makes her first appearance in Friendship is Magic, part 1 at the party that Pinkie Pie throws for Twilight Sparkle in Ponyville's library. In Feeling Pinkie Keen, she hovers behind the trailer alongside Derpy after a myriad of objects fall on Twilight Sparkle. She, along with Derpy, looks guiltily at the foreman after the accident.
Raindrops is part of the weather team in Winter Wrap Up, and one of the ponies initially sent to retrieve the southern birds alongside "Cloud Kicker" and Rainbowshine, later joined by "Medley". She also appears with a pale blue-violet coat knocking snow off a tree branch, and a pony with the design, eye color, and cutie mark of Raindrops but the coat and partly mane colors of "Dizzy Twister" and "Candy Mane" appears late in the episode in the line of pegasi following Rainbow Dash to sweep away all of the snow and clouds.In Hurricane Fluttershy, she is one of the ponies causing the first tornado's collapse; exhausted, she strays from her position and crashes into the pool below.
Raindrops turns up as a cadet in Wonderbolt Academy and is partnered with Thunderlane as his wingpony. When Spitfire challenged the cadets about whether they thought they could be Wonderbolts, poor Raindrops was the first one she turned on (and she visibly crumples when Spitfire stops looking). Later on, she saves Pinkie Pie from falling.
A Pegasus filly with the same color scheme as Raindrops appears in flashbacks in The Cutie Mark Chronicles and Hurricane Fluttershy.
