Bon Bon, real name Sweetie Drops, was a Earth Pony mare who resided in Ponyville, Equestria. She worked as a secret agent for S.M.I.L.E. and went on many adventures with her wife, Lyra Heartstrings. As a civilian, she worked as a candy maker and seller.

History[edit]

Bon Bon grew up in Ponyville[4], and may have been an only-child or had a brother, as she implied she had no sisters.[5] As an adult Bon Bon lived in a house in Ponyville, and worked at Sweetie Drops Candies, a candy shop that she presumably founded. Sometime, likely after Twilight moved to Ponyville, Bon Bon met, befriended, and later formed a romantic relationship with a unicorn named Lyra Heartstrings. After years of love, the two got married and lived happily for the decades to come.[6]

Personality[edit]

Bon Bon has been shown to be both kind and nasty, often with either a short temper or rude personality. She has mellowed out considerably, roughly corresponding when she meant the much more friendly Lyra. As a monster hunter, Bon Bon is generally brave, daring, and heroic. She has civilian interests as well, such as geology and cooking.

Behind the scenes[edit]

Previous generations[edit]

Bon Bon is a multi-generation character who first debuted in Generation 1 as a member of the Seven Pony Friends characters and toy set. She was a main character of My Little Pony Tales and was the host of Bon Bon's Diary, a feature in the My Little Pony Comic Book line of British comics.

Portrayal[edit]

Since Bon Bon was a generic background character, given very little agency and characterization until "Slice of Life", there was no consistent voice for Bon Bon. As such, she went through two actors, Tabitha St. Germain and Ashleigh Ball before Andrea Libman was finally chosen for the part. Chantal Strand provided a 'walla' for a crowd shot that Bon Bon was present in.

Naming[edit]

Bon Bon's true name is Sweetie Drops, but was named Bon Bon in pieces of merchandise, for example, the Bon Bon, Candy Expert trading card, and several others, however, other merchandise also named her as Sweetie Drops. Later stories would reconcile this inconsistency by making her a secret agent, with Bon Bon as her undercover name.
