'''Before the war'''
Bat ponies originated from a Northern mountain Kingdom in Equestria. While some left the Kingdom to join [[Princess Luna|Princess Luna's]] Royal Guard, the vast majority remained home. The Batpony Kingdom was far from isolated, as it maintained key trade routes with its Equestrian and Crystal Imperial kin. Bat ponies are few in number in comparison to the other pony races, owing to centuries of isolation prior to Celestia and Luna Rift, a millenia prior to the [[Great War]],
'''During the war'''
Bat ponies and all of ponykind, threatened by the Zebra Nation, joined the Equestrian war effort in limited numbers. Including those that served in Luna's Royal Guard, the Batpony Kingdom lent both military and logistical aid to the Equestrian war efforts, fighting in the skies of Equestria against dragons, griffon mercs, and Zebra zeppelins.
'''After the War'''
Currently, nothing is known about the fate of the Batpony Kingdom prior to the events of [[Fallout: Equestria - Rising Dawn]]. During Rising Dawn, however, bat ponies can be seen wandering the [[The Northern Wasteland (Rising Dawn)|The Northern Wasteland]], haggard and reduced to nothing but nomadic caravans searching for shelter from the unforgiving Northern winter. Where exactly these ponies came from, it is currently unknown, but their ragged, beaten appearance suggests only the worst of fates.
Bat ponies are characterized by their enlarged tufted ears, leathery bat-like wings, serpent-like retinas, and pointed canines. Bat ponies appear to display a diverse variety of coat-mane color schemes, but many tend towards darker colors.
After the Great War, much of batpony history and culture was lost to the destruction of ponykind's repositories of knowledge. Only those who live among them or have seen them know about batpony culture - and there are very few, if any, who have, following the balefire Apocalypse.
Possessing nocturnally-adapted eyes and large ears, bat ponies are capable night fliers, using both their heightened senses of sight and hearing to navigate both terrain and air in complete darkness. Their set of canines, unique to the bat ponies of the pony species, are notably sharp and are capable of puncturing flesh. Though very little if known about their diets as of now, it can be assumed that bat ponies are omniverous in nature.

Latest revision as of 07:11, February 21, 2020

Bat Ponies, also known as batponies or bat-ponies, are a bat-like species of ponies. While their nomenclature differs between sidestories and media, their appearances remain the same; they are characterized by their tufted ears, dragon-like eyes and leathery, bat-like wings. Little is known about them as bat ponies do not make a prominent appearance in Fallout: Equestria. They do, however, appear in several sidestories and in official My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic media.

Depiction in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and ComicsEdit

Bat ponies were first seen in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic's Season 2, episode 4: Luna Eclipsed, pulling Princess Luna's chariot on Nightmare Night. Since then, bat ponies have been associated with Luna's Royal Guard ponies, characterized by their bat-like appearance and leathery wings.

Bat ponies also appear in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic IDW comics, again portrayed as members of Princess Luna's Royal Guard.

In Fallout: EquestriaEdit

Members of Princess Luna's Royal Guard were enchanted with the Royal Canterlot voice, and presumably fought against the Zebras during the Great War. One of these Royal Guard ponies, Lionheart, survived the war as a ghoul and played an important role in the final push against the Grand Pegasus Enclave in Fallout: Equestria.

Notable Bat poniesEdit

Lionheart from Fallout: Equestria is the only observed Batpony Ghoul to date.
