It's been awhile since I released tally blogs, but I decided to start it up again for characters who reached fifty or more appearances in the show. Most of the secondary characters have a long way to reach one hundred episodes, so I think it's only fair to mention these feats just as well.
These are the characters who have already achieved the halfway point of obtaining one hundred appearances like the Mane 6 and Spike.
Apple BloomThis spunky little filly has made 69 appearances on the show with Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1 being her 50th episode. She started out as filly desperately wanting a cutie mark to feel accepted until she met her fellow Crusaders who helped her learn that a she didn't need a cutie mark to make friends. Her first feat of bravery came from Bridle Gossip where she befriended a zebra believed to be an evil enchantress and showed she was like her fellow ponies in Ponyville. Getting her cutie mark has made her realize that it also means that she's growing up and still has to discover herself on her own sometimes, but that didn't mean she would lose the friends who helped grow or even her Apple family in the process.
Sweetie BelleThis unicorn has made 54 appearances with On Your Marks being her 50th episode. Rarity's little has a cuteness factor that rivals Fluttershy. She is shown to be clever, smart, and sings like an R&B singer at times. All she wanted was to have Rarity be the kind of sister she wants while not living in her shadow either. Now, she is able to stand out and be her own pony that is easily distinguished and separate from her sister. And with her friends by her side, there is nothing this unicorn cannot accomplish for herself and others. After all, she, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo were and still are the Cutie Mark Crusaders for a reason.
ScootalooA pegasus pony with mad skills on a scooter, Scootaloo has made 51 appearances with The Cart Before the Ponies being her 50th episode. Out of all the Cutie Mark Crusaders, she had the most to overcome. She has not been able to move past hovering in her flying skills and felt for the longest time to be like Rainbow Dash. However, Princess Luna showed her that she cannot deny who she really is. Rainbow Dash still took her under here wing regardless of not being able to fly or being as brave as her. She learned that her own skills are what make her unique as opposed to being like other ponies. Will she fly? Who Knows? Scootaloo has more surprises in store. I just know it.
