An unlucky and mysterious potato farmer, a male fighter Earth pony who also enjoys to explore caves and caverns, wanting to feed his knowledge of the unknown.


Born under the name: Mash Potato (that just upsets him, for some reason...) so he prefers to be called: "Potato Mash", he once grew up into his mother's care, never even knowing about his father (or even recalling he had a father), but eventually on Mash's 6th birthday, his mother went out looking for Mash's father, Mash set out to look for both of them, eventually making his way into the Everfree Forest where he first met Count Ulka, a Vampony who was involved in the family's disappearance, the Count strikes a deal with the colt, in which Mash disagreed, disappointed, the Count attempts to abduct Mash, but the Olma family steps in to save the young colt from sharing his parents' fate.

Within many years later, he swears to find his parents by holding a trusty wooden Katana from his forefathers' case cupboard (it never occured to him why there was a random item like this) and goes on many fights with the Count (mostly in losses), instead of a Potato-like Cutie Mark as he would of expected, he acquired a DREAM-like Cutie Mark by the age of 13, as the Olma family are Dreamcatchers, a Dreamcatcher's job is to contain mythical creatures at bay so Ponyville, other towns and cities may sleep calmly at night, though while he is a smart pony, he tends to get into very unlucky situations, causing himself to lose his calm and focus, and due to his colours, he is dubbed the "Unlucky 3-leaf Clover of the Dreamcatchers.", currently at the age of 17, he is living in the outskirts of Ponyville, trading and being in a healthy yet unstable friendship with the Apple Family, trying to obtain as much information regarding his parents whereabouts as he possibly can while under the secrecy of the Olma Family.

He also tends to try and make many friends in Ponyville to keep himself from being depressed, so he goes to Princess Twilight for advice on how to make friends and how to help his mental wellbeing.

After the 3rd ordeal with the Count in which Mash won with the help of his boss "Onyx ", Mash finally gets the whereabouts of his mother, but sadly, after years of finding her, she was too late to be saved, leaving Mash in an extremely depressed state, driving Mash's mind into darkness, causing him to be discorded, but thanks to Princess Luna intervening, Mash was able to get over his mother's fate quickly, currently, he thanks his new friend Luna everyday for saving his mind from a grim fate.


Mash was never one for law, but during a recent incident involving attempted assault on Princess Celestia, he became a defense attorney to get an acquittal for the accused "Onyx Mash", Mash's mentor and best friend who was the suspect at the time with all evidence pointing to him, when the first day began, Mash was surprised to see Twilight Sparkle who was involved in the case also, as a prosecutor to no doubt get the truth about the assault, as the trial began, both parties fought against each other in objections, evidence presenting and logical points were given to shift another member involved, which Mash won the first day of the trial, but it still wasn't over yet the judge is torn between verdicts, Mash begins his investigation alongside Twilight Sparkle to get to the bottom of it, however, they both find little evidence and they go their seperate ways again to face each other in the trial once more for the second day.

As the second day of the trial begins, Mash and Twilight both have their evidence ready for the new witnesses to testify, in which Mash saw through many of their lies and deceit, he also gained the upperhand in the courtroom with Twilight actually catching on, finally gaining the truth one by one as she looks through each testimony and evidence, believing that it wasn't Onyx all along, she agreed on the defense's point that there was another party member involved, in which Mash proved that it was none other than a changeling, disguised as Onyx, however due to holding NO physical evidence, Mash's efforts were for naught, and collapsed onto the bench, calling himself a failure, however, something was bugging Twilight, though she couldn't do a thing, she had no choice but let the verdict swipe at Onyx, Mash had the ultimate choice whether to let the guilty verdict pass, or fight for the truth, until he got vision of Luna, telling Mash to fight and aim for acquittal., "GUILTY!!!" shouted the booming Judge, however an objection was raised before the gavel was casted down, and a detective came crashing in, saying they caught a suspect who was involved in the whole ordeal, it was Onyx's changeling, a double,, however, Onyx stated that he never saw him before, causing suspicion that it was the changeling who caused it, it tried to prove it's innocence by telling his side of the story, though the Judge was too confused on the matter and postponed the trial for the final day, giving both the defense and prosecution more time before they can prove that Onyx is innocent.

The final day approaches on Mash as he feels himself get nervous, hoping he didn't pick the wrong call, he met up with Twilight before the trial begun again and started to theorize on how this all came to fruition, eventually they both were called in, as the Changeling was questioned by both the Prosecutor and Defense, the changeling was sly and smart, given instructions from his Queen, which eventually leads to Queen Chrysalis being that of the guilty party, as the Judge agreed, they request to find Chrysalis and bring her to justice, however due to the circumstance, the changeling was punished accordingly and Onyx was acquitted of the charge, it was up to the authorities and the royals to do the next thing, Mash won the trial on fair ground with Onyx coming up and personally thanking him for his hard work, though while not showing it, he was eternally grateful, Twilight also thanked him for showing her the truth of what happened, never knowing that Mash was tough in wits, however after all of that, Mash collapses from exhaustion unexpectedly due to the attacks Twilight gave during prosecuting and the stress given onto him from being an attorney as a whole, he sleeps soundly knowing he saved an innocent life and goes back to the farm the day after, finally resting and putting all of the trial behind him.

"Turnabout Ditsy Arc" - Mash Investigations (Defense Attorney Arc part 2)

Coming Soon


While unable to be cast magic like a unicorn or fly like a pegasus, Mash tends to train himself with his body instead.

  • Hind Hooves

Mash can walk on his hind hooves while he uses his front hooves to hold the wooden katana, he also uses his mouth to hold the katana's hoovle from time to time, but only if he's exhausted.

  • Stamina

Due to being an Earth Pony living in a farm environment, he's a good candidate for being somewhat energetic, but he uses this energy focusing on his mortal enemy.

  • Animal Friend

He finds most woodland creatures adorable, and those who look cute get a treat from Mash, a clean and tasty potato, he picks up this caretaking trait from Fluttershy.

  • ​Night Vision

​Due to having a merge of Cats-eye, his vision is exceeded by having night vision at will, making him able to see in the dark easily, but he only uses it on occasion.

  • Weapon Mastery

After years of training with a wooden training sword, Mash learns a lot about movement and abilities in regards to his weapon, but sometimes, he tends to get over-confident with this, however, exclaiming that he can even defeat Queen Chysalis (In which, he failed...)

  • Contradiction Finder

​As an up and coming defense attorney, Mash gained a sixth sense to spot contradictions and subside them with the evidence he is given, though in the time, he eventually bluffs his way to the end of the ordeal.

Skills Unlocked[]

  • Zantetsuken (Atom Edge)

Mash repositions his weapon into a reverse grip and does a speed arc slash, reappearing behind the enemy, however this skill is based on luck, if he uses it wrong, he will damage himself.

  • Fury Barrage!

Mash uses his weapon to do a flurry of squirming attacks due to his extreme irritation and/or anger, however doing so can leave him winded and exhausted.

  • Psyukan

  • Infernus Heraldry!

A move consistent of ability enhancement, due to his hidden feline traits, he can amplify his agility, acrobatics and strength to his advantage.


Mostly a happy-go-lucky stallion, but he tends to get upset when he feels like he's losing the battle against the count or when he can never try to get things working, though in other times, he's a kind and gentle soul, but if you touch his potatoes without buying, he'll get really upset, though he usually lets most animals get away with stealing them due to him being an animal pony, not only can he treat animals, but he tries his best to help others anyway he can, from treating an injury to help re-build a house.

Additionally, the reason to why Mash loves fighting is due to his unknown father's nature, though he doesn't like to get into fights by personal reasons, he just wants to fight to see how strong other ponies are.

"It's a pleasure to see you again, miss Fluttershy..." - To himself while looking at a mirror, pathetically.

Great Celestia, what should I do? I can't lose this!" - The ultimate choice between trust and honor, almost before collapsing of stress.
