MLP:FiM S1-S3 Char Screentimes and Correlations by dziadek1990 MLP:FiM S1-S3 Char Screentimes and Correlations by dziadek1990

EqD feature: [link]

Final Upload: 23.04.2013

Reason for the delay: Me trying to add many different math trivias and make the whole thing look all fancy and dandy, and not finishing it as a consequence. I think I'll settle for simplicity for now.

>.> ...damn is it ugly. But I guess better ugly than not uploaded at all, right?

Estimated total time spent: 140 - 180 hours.

Margin of error:
Since the timers of the video players I used show only full seconds, I had to guess how the fractions of seconds were long when added up together.
On average, in each episode there may be a 10 second difference between the real screentime of a character and the screentime I calculated - but since it can be either more or less than reality, given the number of episodes and the fact that all of the characters are prone to this miscalculation, the overall screentime difference will probably be negligable.

It doesn't take that much. If I did this every single day, it would take merely half of an hour daily to keep up with episodes as they come. I spend a lot more than that just derping around the net.

I'm also surprised. I thought only Pinkie was capable of having more screentime than HERSELF. :P

Too bad you couldn't count each Pinkie Clone as a separate body for screen time. I would be inaccurate, be fun to see the line shoot straight up

So for S3, the screentime shipping is RariShy?

S2 is TwiSpike? Hmm, interesting.

S1 is TwiSpike. Of course.

Now for the antishipping.

S3: Rainbow Spike

S2: Pinkie Spike

S1: FlutterSpike (which is odd because of how interested she is in him in Ep1)

Cool data set! One thing though: I would definitely use bars instead of lines. It's not a continuous process like outdoor temperature development but rather discrete instances. Would be more legible too, I guess!

The one I find interesting is that Rarity and Spike are actually more likely to not be in the same scene.

Well if you go alphabetically, AJ does. And while I respect your opinion on who the best pony is, you are wrong.


Just kidding. Don't kill me. I like AJ but not as much Fluttershy.

Well that's a lotta stats for sure, AJ has surprisingly lots of appearances, that's a good thing, but they really should tone down RD at least for a bit, also it seems that Rarity doesn't have too much - oh well in case of her it's quality over quantity as her eps are usually funny ones ;)

Gotta admit that's a lot of work you did here, kudos to you. ;)

Twilight Sparkle Screentime got cut with every season, its still pretty high but i really doubt the whole alicorn business gonna increase her stats ot S1 amount. I guess it will raise a tiny bit but thatīs it, i dont think it will get any less than S3 though.

Thanks for all the work done. :)

Interesting. Pinkie Pie has the highest point on the graph in all three seasons but each time only just barely.

Huh well at least this puts my fears to rest that Applejack isn't getting enough screen time. I was suprised at how much Rainbow Dash got though.

question
because in too many pinkie pies
should you multiply screen time by amount of pinkie pie's per second
thus increasing her screen time by a lot
Reply
:iconlordv255:
lordv255 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
That's weird.... according to the sum totals of all three seasons
the pony with fewest screentime is fluttershy... one of the most loved of the main six
(I didn't include spike because no one cares about spike)

Fluttershy is only the focus or co-focus of 7 episodes out of 65; she's not a Background Pony, but she probably would rather be.

Well, Fluttershy whose main characteristic is general shyness does not exactly have the character that commands the most attention. Flutter getting the fewest screen seconds seems like a quite predictable outcome from that.

Most of Fluttershy's major appearances are about circumstances pulling her out of her comfort zone. The rest of the time, she draws very little attention to herself even when she does get screen time.

season 3 completely ruined my opinion of him
and now i couldn't care less about him.... although i didn't care too much for him anyway

Really? I think he stepped up a bit. And the whole scene with him reacting to the door was just heartbreaking, at least to me. Spike at Your Service was a bad example, admittedly.

I'm not sure connected lines are the right way to do this. They imply some sort of trend-over-time which there isn't. Also, they imply in-between points that can't be measured, which there aren't. There's probably some other sort of graph which shows data more usefully and legibly. Not that I could tell you what it is.

That's just so that the graph is readable. It's easier to follow a certain characters screentime this way. A bar graph with 26 episodes multiplied by 7 characters would be incoprehensible to the naked eye.

:iconnullcast:
Nullcast Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
There's always the divided sum kind of graphs they use for representing things like browser market share. No lines crossing that way and the graph gets taller anytime screentime is shared which is kind of a useful thing to see.

Rarity is so 13337.
Also the best pony. But was it worth it to receive the least amount of screentime in exchange for a percentage of 13.337?
Debatable.
