“Minty is our green machine. She likes green bubble baths, cucumbers on her pizza, and all kinds of green candy. On her birthday, while we slept, she painted the castle green, of course!” - Razzaroo's description of Minty in "A Charming Birthday".
MINTY loves crazy, silly, upside-down days. She's always coming up with new jokes to tell and fun things to do. With MINTY, every day is a dizzy delight! - Minty's backcard story from the back of her toy's box.
Minty is a mint green pony with a light pink mane and pale lavender eyes. Her cutie mark is three mint candies. Minty first appears in "A Charming Birthday" making her own giant charm for Kimono. Later, she's tasked with asking Kimono for advice on their project while keeping the project a secret and is successful at solving the challenge of the perfect gift idea.She has a pretty minor appearance in the "Best Friends Ball" PC game where she's one of 5 possible choices for you to be with. Later, she appears near the end of the game at the Friendship Ball. Her next appearance is in the commercial for the Celebration Castle playset. She joins Pinkie Pie and others as they race into the castle for the arrival of Pink Sunsparkle, whom is traveling by hot air balloon with Rainbow Dash and Sunny Daze. In "A Very Minty Christmas", she breaks the Here Comes Christmas Candy Cane then helps preserve their holiday with the help of her friends. Her role in "The Princess Promenade" and "The Runaway Rainbow" are much smaller as she's among the ponies preparing the float for the parade. Minty also appears in the Game Boy Advance adaptation of "The Runaway Rainbow" with about the same amount of screentime.
As a popular character, Minty received multiple bits of merchandise over the course of G3's toy line.
