In "The Last Roundup", we finally get to hear "Derpy Hooves". She's klutzy and has a "idiot" voice. More specifically, she has the same type of voice as Ed from "Ed, Edd, and Eddy". She is wildly popular in fandom because of an animation mistake in her eyes, and then fans liked her, giving her the name. This episode had the name confirmed.



Now, of course, some people are saying her portrayal is ableist.

More specifically, the eyes, combined with her "stupid" voice, general klutziness, and now canon-confirmed name resemble a stereotype.
