Twist_Ending03

He can join AJ in being a background pony


ThirdLast

Who's AJ?


Twist_Ending03

You know that one background pony with the trio of apples cutie mark? That's her


bravoman78

Princess Big Mac, right?


Twist_Ending03

Nah she only had one apple, the one called AJ by some folks has three little ones


bravoman78

AJ....doesn't ring a belle (pun intended)


Pvz_peashooter

Come on now, even i could figure it out, it's APPLEJACK!


Cruel_and_nice

r/woooosh


DoctorPrower

Are you talking about that one pony from the Cutie Mark Crusaders?


Pvz_peashooter

Come on now, even i could figure it out, it's APPLEJACK!


Poltergust5k

Just a background pony don't worry about it


MellyKidd

Poor AJ, doomed to background filler since G1. 😂


Pvz_peashooter

Come on now, even i could figure it out, it's APPLEJACK!


nyargleblargle

They heard earth ponies were the pony ladder’s bottom rung


Snom_Bomb

And pony sexism


Kody_Wiremane

or is it "pony sexism"? xP


MetalGenocide

Both xP


Kody_Wiremane

"rexism" 'x)


wolfanduni

Agreed.


AlinesReinhard

Wait, Sunny is no longer an earth pony?


popmybubblegum

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.

Livid_Juggernaut_111

Dude the fans love him. He’s part of the fan favorite g5 ship (zipp X hitch) Misty’s just more marketable


Waste_Salamander_624

Personally i don't see it. He's always been of a confidently married to his job kind of guy. But that's me


Livid_Juggernaut_111

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)


Waste_Salamander_624

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


Livid_Juggernaut_111

(And adorable)


RainbowLimenade

(i fully thought hitch was gay)


Livid_Juggernaut_111

Lmao yeah he’s in an on and off relationship with sprout now thanks for the headcanon


Don177

Like the Ken (or Alan) in Barbie.


Livid_Juggernaut_111

Hitch is more than kenough


broccloi

Omg what Hitch is so gay and so is Zipp


Livid_Juggernaut_111

Lmao I know, it’s just that stormblazer is the most popular g5 ship, like how rarijack/appledash was for g4 (I think)


Additional_Meeting_2

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.


Psychoboy777

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.


Big-Seaworthiness3

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.


Dumoney

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.


popmybubblegum

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.


ScarredVirtue

Merch releases going off without a Hitch.


[deleted]

awww man. Hitch is a cutie. I know people like ZippxHitch but i'm more a fan of SunnyxHitch


VoodooDoII

Same


zoro4661

Hitch fucking DIED


marichuu

You know, I'd take that sacrifice as long as the dragon gets Men-in-Black-mind-wiped out of me as well.


Rathama

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.


Cmdr_Northstar

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..


broccloi

The episode is up on Netflix


Cmdr_Northstar

Which one is it?


broccloi

Chapter 4 episode 5, I live in America if that helps


Cmdr_Northstar

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..


broccloi

In that episode Misty does get her makeover though


Cmdr_Northstar

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.


broccloi

Oh, then I was wrong, I don’t have access to an episode like that


Cmdr_Northstar

I was pretty sure it wasn't out yet; wouldn't surprise me if I did miss it though..


broccloi

Also why did you downvote me wtf?


Cmdr_Northstar

I haven't downvoted anything :-?


Rathama

I cannot find this episode either. I guess it is regional? I am in the UK.


Arxl

Common Hasbro L


AwkwardSegway

Hitch is the new Applejack confirmed


lesupermark

First they turned him from reliable stud to scared guy cliche, and now he's gone...


DarkMatter2012

I’d be happy to replace Hitch as long as that means no Sparky (as much as I love hitch)


Certain_Spirit7198

hitch sacrificed himself to get rid of sparky, a true hero


Artem-is

Hell no! We need male characters ffs.


Vittu-kun-vituttaa

Agree


Beanzoboy

Why?


Artem-is

Because. Im a male. And I would like the show to have characters I can deeper relate to.


Beanzoboy

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.


Artem-is

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.


Thicc-Anxiety

No boys allowed


Endless_Glade

Tough living in a mares world


MeadowDayDream

So did hitch actually get removed? Or? Is this a toyline that just doesn't include hitch?


Certain_Spirit7198

it just doesn't include hitch, which is annoying anyway, because there's no reason why he's not there.


artsygirlloveJesus

Why do those wings make me uncomfortable?😫


Shoddy-Group-5493

Furthers my conspiracy that they are subtlety trying to drive away the male audience this gen lol


Beanzoboy

If losing a male character in a show geared toward girls makes you leave, you've got a problem.


Different_Low7781

Nem, its only a girls poster


RealRainbowDash2010

Awwwww cute and adorable


stage_props

Congratulations on her transition 🏳️‍⚧️✨


AetherDrew43

He's the Ken of MLP


kingsredarmy

If I had to choose between Misty and Hitch I’m choosing Misty, sorry.


10thDoctorWhooves

I'm choosing both Misty and Hitch. Sorry Zipp you need to go.


pinksparklebooks

GOOD. NO COPS.


handful_of_frogs

It's weird but am I the only one who thinks this new characters color scheme doesn't look very pleasing?


BadAshess

Not my boy Hitch! 😩


Korean_Jesus111

Smh my head, blatant sexism 😔


yellowgunslinger

I dont understand a single thing about G5 and never will.


Foxglovegamer8

NOOOOO HITCH MY BOY


canadavatar

That's so sexist!!!


Coelacanth0794

he truly is the applejack of g5


pepsimaxlimelove

yay


kittykittyey

Hitch, if you hear me, you're Kenough


kamaano

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.


Time_Distribution_49

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


Otaku_sempai_1960

Yeah, the toy line concentrates on the mares. Not a big surprise.


PinataBubble

Truly living up to being the Applejack of the team 🤣


crossover_charlie14

Spike: my legacy got ruined. TWICE!


General_Alduin

Oh come on, mane 6 including Hitch


[deleted]

No Hitchie Poo


BBTheClown

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. 🥱


Fluffy-Ingenuity482

Hitch was hit by ping lightning (he was taken to the pony hospital where he died)


lapidls

Good riddance tbh, he's boring


PemanilNoob

That darned feminism taking away our men 😡 /s


LowChampionship591

.


Beanzoboy

Good.


MegaScout

damn all 5 hitch fans are in shambles


elliot_le_poser

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...


aurorab3am

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.


kingsredarmy

Where did you gleam that information from?


BastMatt95

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


NightFlame389

Don't forget Hitch's paid-off mortgage


Pony_Roleplayer

Holy crap I want to be like him.


Omnifob

Hitch died on the way back to his home planet


CrescentCaribou

noooooo hitch D:


Tallal2804

Hitch died on the way back to his home planet


Rooster_Nuggets666

That pony is cool and all and I haven’t really watched the g5 show, but where’s Hitch?


Certain_Spirit7198

he is still the protagonist, but for some reason he is sometimes excluded from toys or images


Rooster_Nuggets666

Ah alright


EiiklnrS

Hey why does Misty have a different mane


poopy3280

NOOOOOOOOO


Malkaz45

Damn, this is genuinely sad


Majestic-Sector9836

Hitch's continual shafting is basically the girls toys getting their revenge on the boys toys.


Certain_Spirit7198

[deleted]

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.


canadavatar

All because Misty took his place!!!
