This page is to help inform everypony on how to recognize the differences between Vamponies, Bat Ponies, and Vampire Bat Ponies. Many people are struggling to find a way to tell the difference when the differences are staring them in the face. This page will help those who read it know the difference between the types of ponies that RP on the TP.
These lovable ponies are the first to be broken down. Not much is know about them other than what we have seen in the episode Luna Eclipsed. Bat ponies usually are more grey hues than they pastel brethren (ponies). Two stallions with bat wings are seen pulling Princess Luna into Ponyville. All we as a group know is that they serve the Princess of the Night. Many believe that these ponies are nothing more than normal Pegasus that have had magic cast on them by Princess Luna for theatrics.
Bat Pony Traits

Vampire Bat Ponies
The first time the Vampire Bat ponies were introduced was in season four episode seven, Bats!. The reason for Fluttershy's transformation was due to a magical transformation. some of the Vampire Bat's genetics getting spliced with Fluttershy's. Making her a pony with Vampire Bat tendencies. The only way for this transformation to happen is by magic. It is unclear is a bite from the transformed can transform a normal pony. These ponies have an ill temper and use their large fans to suck dry fruits such as apples. The only way one can lift the curse to reverse the magic that was cast.
