From My Little Wiki
Valentine's friend is a blue Earth Pony with light purple eyes that only appeared in the episode "Crunch the Rockdog". He is one of the two protagonists of a tragic romance story popular in Ponyland and seems to be fictional even within the cartoon series.
My Little Pony cartoon
Valentine's boyfriend and Valentine flee for either a duststorm or what is inside the duststorm. The two find their escape attempt made difficult by the rocky terrain and come to an agreement. Valentine's friend continues the escape attempt, while Valentine stays to prevent their chaser from getting him too.
- Valentine's friend's identity is not clear-cut. During "Crunch the Rockdog", the animation shows that the male pony is the one staying, but the ponies state multiple times that the one staying is female. What likely happened is that the script called for Valentine's boyfriend to be the male pony and the one leaving, but that his and Valentine's animation models were mixed-up during production. This is why the My Little Wiki has chosen to order the two like this, with Valentine's friend as the blue, male one and Valentine as the yellow, female one.
- Valentine's boyfriend and Valentine herself both lack a symbol.
- Valentine's friend holds the honor of being the first stallion to ever appear in a My Little Pony cartoon. The first set of Big Brother Ponies was released around the time "Crunch the Rockdog" aired, but didn't show up until the second season. Valentine's friend takes cues from their appearance, namely the bandana and Clydesdale/Shire hooves, but uniquely has hooves that are of a different color than his legs.
