Rigging is essential for a 3D model because it’s basically the skeleton of the character. A great rig is not easy to program (when I studied 3D production, it was the hardest thing of the subject by a very long shot), but it can be helpful to create exaggerated and appealing poses, especially when the character was modelled for that purpose. And when you combine it with great appealing haircuts with specific quirks, the audience might be attracted to that character.

To me, it was the haircut. Very teenager.

If the characters are the same models, then yes. In the case of Make your Mark. I’m assuming they would have like five different models for male ponies and other five models for the female ones just to avoid technical issues such as clipping or one part of a rig too sensitive for the 3D model. You can’t pick a rig and then give it to another model that has different proportions.
In other words, it would be like giving a Ganondorf rig to a Pikachu model in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
You can see why I think they probably have made 5 male models and 5 other female models with their respective rigs.

It sounds like if you gave a pony a gryphon rig it would at least be identifiable, lol. The good thing though is it sounds like it shouldn’t be too difficult to have good identifiable characters in the background. One thing I liked about G4 was as the show went on it seemed to have more personality there, which will help with people finding new characters to like.

Who are the two characters who weren’t questioned?
Knowing Ring Team, one of the characters he’s referring to is Starlight Glimmer (not sure who else he’s referring to, and I’m not sure I want to find out). However I know some people will disagree with that.

I need to rewatch this special. I’ve only seen it once as a blind reaction and I want to be even more fair to it and try to catch any details that I’ve missed

The main series: I think around 23 episodes, 8 per season maybe?
The shorts: Somewhere around 70-ish I think?

Will Sparky be at Spike’s age in the future?
Spike must have been close to 10 years old when “Friendship is Magic” kicked off, so G5 would have to go on for quite some time for that to happen on-camera.
