What happened to Carrot Top?

Recommended Posts

When I was new to the show in late 2011 to early 2012, she was a really popular background pony, appearing in a lot of fan art and comics. She was often depicted alongside Derpy and acting as the sane pony to her, which is the role Bon Bon plays with Lyra and Octavia plays with Vinyl.

 

Now she's just faded away, with Doctor Whooves taking her place as Derpy's sane pony.

She was selected as Twilight's deadringer.

 

When she became an alicorn, Celestia informed Twilight needed to go into hiding to evade the terrible XOF after defeating Tirek. To accomodate this and to keep Twilight in the action a pony was selected and subjugated to surgical, chemical, and psychological reconstruction to transform her into a total physical clone of Twilight Sparkle. This pony was Carrot Top.

 

Some say it was Nurse Redheart, but CT could just be likely.

 

In the black-ops paperwork Carrot Top is known by the code-name Venom Sparkle.

Started to sell carrots to Celestia by order of Luna to help with dieting. Celestia outraged that this was happening started called for Carrot Top to be put before court for Blasphemy against the Princess but before the trial she skipped town.

Is Bon-BOn really the sane one nowadays?

And is Octavia really any saner than Vinyl?

Well, that's how they were depicted before Slice of Life aired.

All of the "classic" background ponies have faded away, piece by piece, to be replaced with more "canon" versions. Derpy's current self doesn't really need a "sane mare" to serve as a foil in the way her old one did.
