Scootaloo is a young orange pony with a purple mane.
In the Generation 3.5 series, she is an Earth pony who favors games and sports. In Friendship is Magic, she is a tomboyish and impulsive pegasus pony who is a member of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, a trio consisting of herself, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle whose main objective is to discover their special talents and earn their cutie marks. Although she has not yet learned to fly, she is quite agile and is able to perform amazing stunts on her scooter, though she has not yet realized her talent for this. She idolizes the older pegasus pony Rainbow Dash and displays sycophantic behavior when she is in the vicinity.
