Muffins, (known as Derpy in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series) or normally called "the pony in the box",[notes 1] is a playable and non-playable character in My Little Pony: Magic Princess. She is a wall-eyed Pegasus with a gray coat and yellow mane and eyes, and her cutie mark is a group of bubbles. She is seen hiding in a box with a small rectangular hole cut out for her to see through. If tapped, she will be uncovered and drop 20 Bits, and has about a one-in-three chance of also dropping 1 Gems or 1 Wheels. She will then disappear to hide again, reappearing not long after again. Muffins typically spawns inside her box, but she can also spawn standing perfectly still with no box.

Muffins is well-liked by the other characters; Pinkie Pie, Applejack, and Twilight Sparkle explicitly refer to her as their friend in the intro text of the quests they issue the player to find her (Pinkie calls her "my quirky little pony pal" in "Everybody's Favorite"P, Applejack calls her "my li'l wide-eyed pony pal" in "Eye See You"P, and Twilight calls her "my wild-eyed pony pal" in "What a Strange Pony"P), and Pinkie's quest is even named "Everybody's Favorite". After Muffins is uncovered, other characters will go well out of their way, even into still-covered expansion zones, to interact with her.

Muffins can appear in Ponyville, Sweet Apple Acres, Canterlot, and Crystal Empire.

The playable Muffins was added on Update 4.3.

Animations and appearances

Muffins in a box, being uncovered, and falling.

Muffins has several unique animations. The first being her posing with her head up and all four hooves on the ground when she is uncovered. The next is of her falling down. She will fall both when walking and when flying. Muffins will also skip in place and fall down.

Muffins also appears in the Apple Bobbing Stall, which was available as part of the Nightmare Night 2013 update. Tapping the stall causes Muffins to stick her head out of the barrel and look around before diving back into the water.

Muffins appears as the Hearth's Warming Angel, the second product that can be made in the Canterlot Gift Shop, which was available as part of the Hearth's Warming 2013 update.

Muffins' box decorated for Hearth's Warming Eve.

During the holidays, Muffins' box is decorated like a present wrapped with green paper and a red ribbon and bow.

After the 2.4 update, once Twilight Sparkle becomes an alicorn, Muffins spawns in Ponyville without her box. She stands perfectly still until tapped.

Trivia and Tips

  • Her eyes will appear normal while peering from the box, but she will regain her derp eyes after being uncovered. However, this was fixed in an update and now she has her derp eyes in the box too.
  • Tip #1: If you find and unbox Muffins quickly pan away so she's well off-screen. Click around in your new area. Wait a few seconds and she might be back in her box in another part of the scene. You can find her two or three times in rapid succession this way and thus have more opportunities to get gems from her. (Doesn't work any more after Update 3.3)
  • Tip #2: If you need Muffins to spawn more quickly, visit Ponyville or Canterlot and spend some time in Edit mode, moving decor around. It seems to make her appear after Editing.
  • In Update 3.4, another Muffins was able to be purchased in the game as "Lazy Fan". A later update added a third Muffins as "Mail Muffins".



  1. Muffins is referred to as "the pony in the box" in all in-game mentions except for the Gameloft friends feature, if the player's age is set to 9 or under, and formerly in the task for "What a Strange Pony"P.
