More recurring characters? Agiri 438881

I'd really like to see more characters introduced who actually re-appear in later episodes, like Zecora, Babs and Discord.

better idea:

Bring back characters we've seen only once, like Steven Magnet, Lightening Dust or Braeburn

Definitely, the world feels much more real when characters make re-appearances.

Maybe they still have too many ideas about the mane 6 to start putting focus on side characters!

Braeburn technically had a cameo in Racist Barn.

But any of those three would be great to see again!

Agreed. We have a good few one-shot characters, we don't need more just so they could be re-used again. LD could be worked in here and there as a rival for RD who got bitter or something, even if it's a bit cliché'd. Or have Gilda come back at some point. Doesn't have to be the main point of the episode, but could be a side plot. How about Flim and Flam, what happened to them? Rose? Yeah, actually, make a whole episode about Rose!

I would love for Steven to show up in an upcoming episode. You know which one I'm talking about.

>>438975
Very likely. There are a lot of aspects of the characters left unexplored and story ideas unused. I also don't think focusing that much on the side characters would be that great of an idea. But that could just be me thinking about what I want from the show. Then again, I'd be all for an episode starring the Flower Trio at least in a semi-important role, sooo…

Having re-occurrring side characters doing things here and there would be pretty fun, though, and would bring the world alive a bit better, like you said.

Vinyl's not a side character. She's a background pony!

Though there could be a possibility that they might get a supporting role in the near future…
Trust me that I would want to see Vinyl getting some development.

Scratch has actually made a bunch of cameos here and there. I want some Tavi dammit.

I would even go beyond this and say I wanna see the side characters be given the spotlight every once in a while.

Other ponies can learn lessons too! It doesn't ALWAYS have to be the mane 6!

Both of them have gotten short lived cameos but it would interesting to see more direct participation; speaking roles, some insight into their past lives, working alongside the Mane6.

And in the end they become friends and she lets him come over for carrots whenever he wants :3

We've had the CMC learning lessons already, though! Remember Family Appreciation Day? It also gave a lot of background on Ponyville and Granny Smith.

Personally I wouldn't really want the side characters, and especially not background ponies given the spotlight often. With this I mean being the stars of their own episodes. Supporting roles, for sure, but the main show isn't about them, no matter how much I'd want Octavia or Rose to get their episodes. And after what happened with Derpy I'm not sure they'd want to touch beloved background characters that much.

Sorry to rain on your parades, but at least I don't think these things are feasible.
