The fandom for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has done numerous things with the show, from combining characters with other characters from different, to making catchphrases just for bronies/pegasisters. Here are some memes that have caught on.

Candy Vag

A joke/meme stemming from an old piece of blue humor fanart that observed that My Little Ponies might "taste like candy." This image was posted several times in threads discussing FiM when the new show first began to air. A number of image macros have continued the meme.

Given that fans often speculate the sexual orientation of the character Rainbow Dash (claiming that her tomboyish personality, voice, and rainbow mane are evidence that she is a lesbian) the phrase “candy vag” has particularly been used in image macros where Rainbow Dash appears to be chasing something.


My Little Pony Catchphrases, also known as “brony speak”, are slang terms created by fans of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Many of the phrases are taken directly from dialogue in the show, or reference tropes found throughout the series.

Confound these ponies

Originally started in a series of image macros, and later spread to the viewers of Yaridovich’s Pony Synchtube. It comes from an episode of Chuck Jones’ The Dover Boys of Pimento University where the villain proclaims, “Confound these Dover boys! They drive me to drink!”.

Love and Tolerate

Love and Tolerate
“Love and tolerate” was created to deal with trolling and hatred in pony related threads. It is often used in image macros to express contempt in a joking, lighthearted manner.

Welcome to the Herd

The phrase “brohoof” is often used to express approval towards another brony, and comes from the term bro fist. This can be used in an image macro. It can also be used as a greeting toward a fellow brony.


Same way as brohoof, Facehoof comes from the term facepalm and it’s use as a reaction to something silly or senseless.

Don’t feed the Parasprites / Paraspriting

The fun has been doubled

It is occasionally used to insult something by saying “It needs to be about 20% cooler.” It can also be used to express that something has significantly improved.

Oatmeal? Are You Crazy?

In episode 3 of Season 1, titled “The Ticket Master”, Pinkie Pie randomly blurts out the phrase “Oatmeal? Are you crazy?" The board was created for more random pony content in honor of Pinkie Pie’s random nature.

And That's how Equestria was Made

In episode 23 titled “The Cutie Mark Chronicles ”, Pinkie Pie explains how she got her cutie mark to The Cutie Mark Crusaders . She ends the story by saying, “And that’s how Equestria was made.” The phrase is commonly used in forum boards as a substitute for "tl;dr" and as a reply to off-topic comments.


Forever was originally spoken by the character Pinkie Pie in episode 20 titled Green Isn’t Your Color. It is sometimes used to convey that something extends indefinitely, but is often used randomly in pony threads.

The “wingboner” is considered the pegasus equivalent to a human’s erection. It is typically associated with the way Rainbow Dash flares her wings out in an erect, stiff position.

The flaring is often accompanied by the onomatopoeic words “pomf!” or “sproing!”.

Ten Seconds Flat

Pony Reimaginings

During the talk Pinkie Pie mistakes Rainbow Dash's sarcastic comment that Fluttershy is a tree for a serious statement, and starts arguing that she isn’t just before they are interrupted, Fluttershy pipes in that she would, in fact, like to be a tree.
