Some are ponies, some are vampire ponies (who due to certain factors can eat anything not just blood) some turn into wolfs, some are based on the creature from the black lagoon but more gator then fish while two don't need to eat which are mummies and ghost but can have the option via magic that turns food to energy it's complicated but I will get more in depth someday
I don't know exactly what that means, but yes. (If you mean tag counts, IIRC Shoeshine has the highest Derpi image count of any G4 character lacking a FimFic tag)
You might possibly think about addressing the issue of Rarity using Spike for favors all the time, so that it wouldn't look like she has an ulterior motive for having Spike continue to explore his crush.
but which one is best, i did a poll on devant art and I just got one and two
and is more like foreign exchange students, they go to school in another country, learn from there and come back?
