I dunno much about the whole lore behind 'em or anything about the movie, but I really like the idea of her just not having a symbol. I've always thought that'd be interesting.

Tons of ponies don't have a cutiemark they are called blank flanks you should watch the current show :p
Mostly though they are foals and later get their mark

There was a g4 earth pony blindbag named FizzyPop



Oh dear, what Tempest could have been if that unfortunate accident with the Ursa hadn't happened.


Many thanks to Crystal Valley for my sig image :art:

I think you misunderstood my post. I meant that it would be interesting to see an adult blank flank, thus my point...

And tbh I couldn't have any less interest in watching FiM, lol.

I love you guys! It makes me so happy that there are people taking this question seriously!
I have a really hard time reconciling Tempest, even if she hadn't been hurt, with the ice cream symbol. Her feelings are so strong, and though my feelings about ice cream are strong, i don't think it is quite the same...


We make these! $10 each.  PM me for details!
Thanks so much to Calico_Star for her beautiful work!

To be honest, I really like the idea of her not having her cutie mark yet, because she hasn't found her true calling yet. Being an outsider in Equestria as a filly with no friends could have delayed her from discovering her true "career path". (Until the end of the movie, she's just a Storm King follower, and in the prequel comics, she's lost too.)

Maybe her cutie mark will be pop rocks candy and maybe she's meant to open up an ice cream shop in Ponyville one day, where she decorates floats with pop rock candy before giving her customers a great fireworks show. Just a thought. :P

*nods*. I also think it would be interesting to see an adult blank flank trying to find her true purpose.  She was so focused on what she had lost  that she couldn't see what she had.

What if she even lost her cutie mark?  Could that happen?  Like if she had an ice cream cutie mark before the accident but as she descended into depression and bitterness, it went away.  Maybe when she made the decision to leave Equestria.  I kind of like how the idea could correspond with real life situations.  Like an athlete who is seriously hurt so that they can't do their sport anymore so they have to find a new purpose for themselves.

I wish she had a symbol. They're what make mlp "mlp" to me. So far the brushables I saw on ebay are blank under the armor so now to me it's confirmed I guess. I think I might not buy her because of it. The idea of an adult blank flank is a bit intriguing but I can't help but just think it's Hasbro being lazy.
Same with the sea ponies. I would probably like them if they had marks... but without, no.

Seaponies never had marks though even back in g1. Plus spoilers the plot says it doesn't make sense

Oh, it could definitly still be Hasbro being lazy.  They haven't definitively said that she doesn't have one.

This is not entirely true.  There is a group of sea ponies that have a necklace like mark around their necks. They were each different.  They are called the Sea Sparkle Baby Sea ponies.  So, I feel this is a type of symbol for them in a way since each one is different for each sea pony.

I was never much a fan of G1 seaponies either  ^^; plus
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

If later it comes out Tempest does have a mark it'll be really odd her toy not having it. Maybe I was hoping for a reveal like when we learned of Photo Finish's mark from her toy. I'm still annoyed by Mane-iac, lol.

Well, I started my plush. I will post pictures when it is ready. I am leaving her blank, and if my son wants to add a symbol, we can do that later. I've never made clothes for a plush before, should be an adventure!
Thank you all for your help! I love watching this conversation evolve!
