Chapter 5 is the fifth chapter of My Little Pony: The Manga and of first volume. The chapter stars Applejack and her family as they deal with a problem caused by Flim and Flam.


At Sweet Apple Acres, the Apple family are throwing their Apple Family Zap Apple Jam Extraordinaire, a massive carnival type event. Unfortunately, the Flim Flam Brothers appear and quickly begin hawking exotic fruits to the fair goers, including Pinkie Pie. Applejack is quick to confront the pair, only for them to note that they're not actually on the Apples' property. As they turn their attention to various patrons, including Spike, Granny Smith arrives to vent her annoyance with the brothers.

Seeking to compete with the Zap Apples, the brothers attempt to unveil their own special apples, only for their chosen barrel to turn out empty. While Pinkie Pie is soon convinced of the existence of "invisible, weightless, flavorless apples", the brothers wonder what happened to their actual stock. The question is soon answered, as the brothers' product turns out to be Crab Apples, a species of crustacean with an apple-shaped shell. With five barrels of the creature now loose in Sweet Apple Acres, the Apple family are forced to contend with them while Flim and Flam make a rapid exit.

The Apples gear up for their task, though not quickly enough to prevent a number of ponies from getting pinched. Apple Bloom, in a mischievous mood, intends to allow Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon to fall victim to the Crab Apples. However, with the fact that Filthy Rich is their most valuable customer in mind, Applejack quickly sends her to their rescue. After failing to catch the wily crabs, the Apples succeed in driving them off by threatening to hold a crab bake. the Crab Apples quickly flee, with their course taking them towards Flim and Flam's broken down wagon...
