A quick bio of Her
DJ Pon-3, or Vinyl Scratch, is a female unicorn pony disc jockey whose names were given by fans. She makes several appearances in the series, films,animated shorts, IDW comics, and chapter books. She is unnamed in the show and the films, being referred to as simply "DJ" during the reprise of the song This is Our Big Night, but she is named in merchandise, including a trading card which states that "DJ Pon-3 is actually a stage name, and her real name is Vinyl Scratch." She also appears in other promotional material.
Her Cutie Mark
DJ Pon-3's cutie mark is the mirror image of two bridged eighth notes. It appears as such on the show, on a trading card, and on websites (all showing the left side of her body), but it appears non-mirrored (when showing the right side of her body) on her toy, on the Season 2 poster, and on websites. In the IDW comics' My Little Pony: Friendship is MagicIssue #11 story neigh anything..., Shining Armor's flashback shows her getting her cutie mark watching him, Poindexter,8-bit and Gaffer perform to get the attention of Princess Cadance
Octavia Melody (her lover)
Octavia Melody shares her eye design with Rarity, the spa ponies, and severalbackground ponies, except for the iris. The origin of the name "Octavia" is attributed to both Alex McG in a comment on May 7, 2011, and a Blogger commenter going by the nickname "Octavia." This fan-given name was officially adopted in Enterplay's cards and in Gameloft's mobile game each in 2012 and used in one of Little, Brown's chapter books, being expanded to "Octavia Melody" in Hasbro's toy line and in Funko's vinyl figure line each in 2013. The name "Octavia" likely refers to the musical concept of octaves, whereas "Melody" refers to the term of the same name
