Earth ponies shafted again. Guess pony racism is still going strong lol
He can join AJ in being a background pony
You know that one background pony with the trio of apples cutie mark? That's her
Princess Big Mac, right?
Nah she only had one apple, the one called AJ by some folks has three little ones
AJ....doesn't ring a belle (pun intended)
Come on now, even i could figure it out, it's APPLEJACK!
Are you talking about that one pony from the Cutie Mark Crusaders?
Just a background pony don't worry about it
Poor AJ, doomed to background filler since G1. 😂
They heard earth ponies were the pony ladder’s bottom rung
And pony sexism
or is it "pony sexism"? xP
Wait, Sunny is no longer an earth pony?
She's still technically an earth pony but she's also an alicorn. Her wings and horn can be activated when she's in her element (helping other ponies) but her true form is an earth pony.
Dude the fans love him. He’s part of the fan favorite g5 ship (zipp X hitch)
Misty’s just more marketable
Personally i don't see it. He's always been of a confidently married to his job kind of guy. But that's me
Yeah, I can’t really seem him as anything else than a single dad whom just about half the population of his town crushes on (you can’t tell me sprout ISNT gay for him)
Who knows he might havr a small crush on Sprout but the situation in the movie left him too disappointed.
Be there in the future one day there's a proper Reformation and Reconciliation arc and hitch truly realizes he doesn't need anyone romantically. It's all because of he's proud of who he is and what he does. Quite frankly he might even be fine with being in the background because to a certain degree those are people who do the hardest work. It's the people behind the scenes that are often forgotten but they're the ones who get the biggest tasks done.
I'm being half overly dramatic and half serious
(i fully thought hitch was gay)
Lmao yeah he’s in an on and off relationship with sprout now thanks for the headcanon
Like the Ken (or Alan) in Barbie.
Hitch is more than kenough
Omg what Hitch is so gay and so is Zipp
Lmao I know, it’s just that stormblazer is the most popular g5 ship, like how rarijack/appledash was for g4 (I think)
Male characters get disregarded in female led franchises, female characters in male (look what happened with Katara and Black Widow for examples).
And Hitch is combination of Fluttershy and AJ really, and this is his AJ side hurting him.
Katara got TONS of development. Not to mention Toph and, to a lesser extent, Suki. Part of what made Avatar so great was how gender-inclusive it was. Heck, the most threatening villains in the show were a trio of women who bodied the heroes any time they came into conflict.
Not to mention that it seems like Misty is now taking his Fluttershy spot, which leaves him as the AJ of the group. I wish they'd let him have fun and party too.
I hope he is, because its nice to have some consistent male characters. G4 didnt really get that until Big Mac upgraded out of background status and Discord reformed.
I don't pay attention to G5 either but I guess Hasbro probably assumed going back to being a "girls only" type of thing would somehow make them more money, they make a lotta bad decisions and never fail at being sexist so it wouldn't surprise me if that was the case.
Merch releases going off without a Hitch.
awww man. Hitch is a cutie. I know people like ZippxHitch but i'm more a fan of SunnyxHitch
Hitch fucking DIED
You know, I'd take that sacrifice as long as the dragon gets Men-in-Black-mind-wiped out of me as well.
What happened to Misty's hair?\* Also I thought the idea was that misty was just the missing thing for the two of each race. Weird that they would take out Hitch as she is added.
Maybe this merch is just meant to be a girls only and is not reflective of the show.
\*Next part of the show might answer but idk if I will watch it. G5 has some interesting things which had kept me watching out so far. Like the toxic relationship with Misty and Opal and unlike other people my initial reaction to things like phones was more out of curiosity. MLP is a lot about teaching friendship starting with G4 which G5 happens in the future of.
Technology like social media plays such a huge role in our world that a show about teaching real life lessons can do interesting things with it. However, I feel the good stuff gets overshadowed by the less good stuff too often for my taste. Also the way the show uses social media while having interesting stuff, >!like the time the sisters got trapped and used social media to get help!<, feels way too "How do you do fellow kids" about it. And the pacing feels very off at times especially the last episode of act 4.
Not necessarily a bad thing as I am not their primary audience. I feel G5 is just not as general audience age targeted as G4 which is why many G4 fans feel disappointed.
At the same time they want G4 fans since they made it the same universe. So weird choice of marketing to target but at the same time not target a specific group of people.
Misty's mane change was apparently part of a glow-up for an event in Zephyr Heights; there's a clip on YT, but I don't the think the actual ep has released yet..
The episode is up on Netflix
Which one is it?
Chapter 4 episode 5, I live in America if that helps
I'm in America too; that ep for me is The Manesquerade Ball; this has to happen in season 5, as it takes place after she gets her cutie mark in episode 7..
In that episode Misty does get her makeover though
For the ball yes, but the colors in her mane/ tail stayed the same blue/ green..
There was a clip on YT showing the event had something to with getting her CM, and she was embarrassed at being the oldest pony there.
Oh, then I was wrong, I don’t have access to an episode like that
I was pretty sure it wasn't out yet; wouldn't surprise me if I did miss it though..
Also why did you downvote me wtf?
I haven't downvoted anything :-?
I cannot find this episode either. I guess it is regional? I am in the UK.
Common Hasbro L
Hitch is the new Applejack confirmed
First they turned him from reliable stud to scared guy cliche, and now he's gone...
I’d be happy to replace Hitch as long as that means no Sparky (as much as I love hitch)
hitch sacrificed himself to get rid of sparky, a true hero
Hell no! We need male characters ffs.
Because. Im a male. And I would like the show to have characters I can deeper relate to.
I'm male, too. This show was not made for you. Neither was Gen 4. They got super popular because of the quality writing of the *female* characters. You could relate to them through their personalities and their actions. You don't (and neither do girls) look like them *at all*. If you need to look like someone in order to be able to relate to them, you have a problem you need to work on.
There are shows with lots of male characters. MLP is not one of them. It didn't start as one, and it shouldn't become one. It's a show to highlight female characters this time. If you can't relate to a character "because female" and only relate to a character "because male" you need to do some introspection.
Dude, idk why you went so far. It was not very nice tbh.
I forgot to mention that having characters of one gender cuts out a lot of social dynamics that would have made for another layer of a story. In the end it's just my taste. Could be different from yours.
No boys allowed
Tough living in a mares world
So did hitch actually get removed? Or? Is this a toyline that just doesn't include hitch?
it just doesn't include hitch, which is annoying anyway, because there's no reason why he's not there.
Why do those wings make me uncomfortable?😫
Furthers my conspiracy that they are subtlety trying to drive away the male audience this gen lol
If losing a male character in a show geared toward girls makes you leave, you've got a problem.
Nem, its only a girls poster
Awwwww cute and adorable
Congratulations on her transition 🏳️⚧️✨
He's the Ken of MLP
If I had to choose between Misty and Hitch I’m choosing Misty, sorry.
I'm choosing both Misty and Hitch. Sorry Zipp you need to go.
GOOD. NO COPS.
It's weird but am I the only one who thinks this new characters color scheme doesn't look very pleasing?
Not my boy Hitch! 😩
Smh my head, blatant sexism 😔
I dont understand a single thing about G5 and never will.
NOOOOO HITCH MY BOY
That's so sexist!!!
he truly is the applejack of g5
Hitch, if you hear me, you're Kenough
Why does so much g5 merch refuse to include Hitch? I've seen this on multiple other merch releases, even before Misty was part of the crew.
I even have a toy of Hitch that came with a little poster of all the main characters except him.
Hitch: doesn't seem to matter what I do
I'm always number two
No one knows how hard I tried, Oh-oh
I have feelings that I can't explain
Drivin' me insane
All my life, been so polite
But I'll sleep alone tonight
Yeah, the toy line concentrates on the mares. Not a big surprise.
Truly living up to being the Applejack of the team 🤣
Spike: my legacy got ruined. TWICE!
Oh come on, mane 6 including Hitch
No Hitchie Poo
He wasn’t replaced, it’s just promo backing, this happens quite often, even puzzle series have some unlisted on certain boxes, and shown with all of the collection on others. Calm down. 🥱
Hitch was hit by ping lightning (he was taken to the pony hospital where he died)
Good riddance tbh, he's boring
That darned feminism taking away our men 😡 /s
damn all 5 hitch fans are in shambles
bruh why do ppl ship the new mane 6 arent they all supposed to be like tweens😭 kinda weird, its like shipping the cmc's...
they definitely don’t seem like tweens, more like 15-16 maybe even up to 19 or so. it’s not really weird to ship teens unless you’re making it sexual.
Where did you gleam that information from?
Considering they all live away from their parents, two of them own a business, and a third one works as a sheriff (and has an adopted child), I think they're most likely young adults
Don't forget Hitch's paid-off mortgage
Holy crap I want to be like him.
Hitch died on the way back to his home planet
noooooo hitch D:
That pony is cool and all and I haven’t really watched the g5 show, but where’s Hitch?
he is still the protagonist, but for some reason he is sometimes excluded from toys or images
Hey why does Misty have a different mane
Damn, this is genuinely sad
Hitch's continual shafting is basically the girls toys getting their revenge on the boys toys.
top 10 villian origins
I think she’s only there for marketing purposes. Hitch is still apart of the group they just don’t show him. It’s kinda like how Apple Jack, Rarity and Fluttershy weren’t on most merchandise.
All because Misty took his place!!!
