Pinkamena Diane Pie, or "Pinkie Pie" for short, is an earth pony with a pink body, blue eyes and magenta mane and tail. She is one of the eight original 2003 Ponies (called G3) and one of the Core Seven friends as leader in the G3.5 incarnation of the toyline. She maintains most of her appearance, but with her mane and tail color (usually, her body used to be pink, and her mane & tail a lighter shade) and cutie mark (originally 3 balloons with curved strings) changed slightly; her new cutie mark matches Surprise's, a pegasus pony from the 1980s series, but the balloons are colored blue and yellow instead of purple. Born as Pinkamena Diane Pie, Pinkie Pie is a baker/confectioner at the Sugarcube Corner and a party planner, but is very funny, talkative, a bit air-headed, and quite random at times. She also enjoys singing and playing pranks, sometimes with Rainbow Dash's help, but will not play any on Fluttershy due to her sensitive nature. In "Swarm of the Century", she makes a musician out of herself regardless of some other ponies' concerns about the Parasprites. Her behavior is frequently random and chaotic at times and she has been known to break the fourth wall. There is seldom a day without Pinkie's smile. She possesses the "Pinkie Sense," an ability to predict events in the immediate future through twitches of various body parts, as well as a photographic or Eidetic memory. When she becomes sad enough, her mane and tail go from curly to completely straight and her pink coloration loses its brightness, matching her appearance during her unhappy youth on a rock farm before she earned her cutie mark. While she usually hops around, Pinkie is exceptionally quick when running, able to keep pace with and chase down a hurrying, airborne Rainbow Dash. She represents the Element of Laughter. She has a toothless pet alligator named Gummy.
