Default Let's categorize the episodes

Heya, everypony. I need a little bit of help with something. I've been working to divide up the episodes into "character collections." These are groups of episodes that focus mainly on a single character.

In the case of Friendship is Magic, these categories are each of the "mane" six characters, Spike, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders. I also have a category for "everypony," which is for episodes that focus on new characters that equally affect most of the mane six or that focus on most of the mane six evenly. Each episode can only belong to a single category.


Twilight Sparkle
1-06 Boast Busters
1-11 Winter Wrap Up
2-03 Lesson Zero
2-20 It's About Time

Rainbow Dash
1-13 Fall Weather Friends
1-16 Sonic Rainboom
2-07 May the Best Pet Win!
2-08 The Mysterious Mare Do Well
2-16 Read It and Weep

Applejack
1-04 Applebuck Season
1-08 Look Before You Sleep
2-14 The Last Roundup
2-15 The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000

Rarity
1-14 Suited For Success
1-19 A Dog and Pony Show
2-05 Sisterhooves Social
2-09 Sweet and Elite

Fluttershy
1-07 Dragonshy
1-20 Green Isn't Your Color
1-22 A Bird in the Hoof
2-19 Putting Your Hoof Down
2-22 Hurricane Fluttershy

Pinkie Pie
1-10 Swarm of the Century
1-15 Feeling Pinkie Keen
1-25 Party of One
2-13 Baby Cakes
2-18 A Friend in Deed
2-24 MMMystery on the Friendship Express

Cutie Mark Crusaders
1-12 Call of the Cutie
1-17 Stare Master
1-18 The Show Stoppers
1-23 The Cutie Mark Chronicles
2-06 The Cutie Pox
2-12 Family Appreciation Day
2-17 Hearts and Hooves Day
2-23 Ponyville Confidential

Spike
1-24 Owl's Well that Ends Well
2-10 Secret of my Excess
2-21 Dragon Quest

Everypony
1-01 Friendship is Magic (Part 1)
1-02 Friendship is Magic (Part 2)
1-03 The Ticket Master
1-05 Griffon the Brush-off
1-09 Bridle Gossip
1-21 Over a Barrel
1-26 The Best Night Ever
2-01 The Return of Harmony (Part 1)
2-02 The Return of Harmony (Part 2)
2-04 Luna Eclipsed
2-11 Hearth's Warming Eve
2-25 A Canterlot Wedding (Part 1)
2-26 A Canterlot Wedding (Part 2)


Now, there are three two episodes left, and I don't know who to categorize them under.

1-08 Look Before You Sleep
I'm pretty evenly split between Rarity and Applejack.

1-13 Fall Weather Friends
I'm leaning slightly towards Rainbow Dash, as she learned more of a lesson than Applejack.


1-17 Stare Master
I'm leaning slightly towards the CMC here for the same reason as Fall Weather Friends.


Any help? Is anything in the wrong place?

Pretty sure this was a Twilight episode, since she was the one with the Problem of the Week.

MMMystery seemed more like a Pinkie episode since she was the one with the cake.

The season 1 premieres' seemed more like everypony episodes since everyone was introduced and characterized.

LBYS is a tough one; AJ and Rarity both seem to be the emphasis. Maybe just put it in both?

Stare Master should be a CMC episode due to them learning the lesson, and also because chickens.

Also, where's Cutie Mark Chronicles? It's not anywhere on the list, and it should be an Everypony episode.

I agree, MMMystery started with Pinkie, ended with Pinkie, revolved mainly around Pinkie, and she learned the lesson.
Friendship is Magic is more everypony than it is Twilight.
Canterlot Wedding centered most around Twilight from the mane six, but it technically is really about Cadence and SA.
Stare Master is totally Cutie Mark Crusaders...as much as I love Fluttershy...
Loving these organization skills, by the way.

Oh crap, thanks for pointing that out. I think I categorized that one when I was taking a break from studying for an exam.
Edit: Wait, it's still in the right place in the spreadsheet.

Hmm, perhaps. I'll move that one.

Reasonable as well. I originally had it under Everypony until a little before I posted this.

Nah, each can only be under one for this.

Alright. Not sure what the chickens and cockatrice have to do with anything, but regardless...

Oops, that was supposed to be on the list of ones I hadn't yet categorized.
Edit: Hm, this one is missing from my spreadsheet too.
Edit 2: This one is a bit of a tough call, frankly. I do agree that Everypony may be the best place for it, but I think I did originally have it under the CMC.

But couldn't the same be said about both season pilots?

Thanks.


Edit 3: Updated the first post.

The first season pilot was an introduction to the show, but Twilight was the MAIN main character.
The second one really revolves around all of them equally.
New Info: Rainbow Dash's cocky attitude and cheating ways when she starts to lose make is seem like Fall Weather Friends is more about her.
At the end of Look Before You Sleep, Applejack takes notice of Rarity's "Annoying attention to detail," apologizes, and even asks her to please help the mess she made. I think this one belongs to Applejack. (Because other than that moment, it looks evenly divided)

Alright, I've updated the first post. I don't entirely want to split any of the two-part episodes and would rather just consider them one episode each.

I can't wait for season 3 to be over. I hope there are a lot more Fluttershy episodes to satisfy me with. Time to run through the current Fluttershy ones over and over and over...

Well, of course. They can't focus on one pony too often, as they can only fit 26 episodes in a single season.

Now that Season 3 is over, you think you should update this to include those episodes as well?

Yes, most definitely.

3-01 The Crystal Empire (Part 1) - Everypony
3-02 The Crystal Empire (Part 2) - Everypony
3-03 Too Many Pinkie Pies - Pinkie Pie
3-04 One Bad Apple - CMC
3-05 Magic Duel - Twilight Sparkle
3-06 Sleepless in Ponyville - CMC
3-07 Wonderbolts Academy - Rainbow Dash
3-08 Apple Family Reunion - Applejack
3-09 Spike at Your Service - Spike
3-10 Keep Calm and Flutter On - Fluttershy
3-11 Just for Sidekicks - Spike
3-12 Games Ponies Play - Everypony
3-13 Magical Mystery Cure - Twilight Sparkle

Hm, that was surprisingly easy. Unless a new category (like "Secondary Characters") is added, I don't think there's much leeway for arguing on these. Such a category might actually make it harder to categorize some of them.
