Nikola Tesla pony by Achenara Nikola Tesla pony by Achenara
Here's the eccentric genius Nikola Tesla as a my little pony character, harvesting electricity the equestrian way.

His cutie mark contains two lightning bolts going in a circle with the Wardenclyffe Tower behind them. This was supposed to symbolize his great success' and contribution to science as well as his grand dreams that never came to fruition (the lightning bolts representing alternating current and the tower was one of his projects that ran out of money before its completion).



Here you can find a version without the accessories (Tesla coil, cloud etc) and here's one without the clothes.

Thanks to everyone who suggested him!

Breaking news, Twitterbug founded in Nikola's workshop, it inspired him to invent the Tesla Coil and even more upgraded with Red Alert's multi-coiled version.

One mistake- Tesla was known for his piercingly blue eyes which he claimed reflected his intellect.

Having blue eyes also means electricity is originally blue too.

And of course, today is also the body color of Twittermites, I bet he founded the bug except he forgot to trademark or patent the name of the bug he founded in his workshop. And some other ponies founded the Twittermite name.

This is the ultimate pony. Chrysalis is trying to take over the world? Tesla coil. Diamond dogs? Tesla coil. Nightmare Moon? Really big Tesla coil. Discord? Meh, those six ponies from Ponyville could probably handle it, I need to make a BIGGER Tesla coil.

They're paying HOMAGE to Tesla. Besides, they're not the only one to make people/characters into ponies. This is the internet, it happens.

It's either a subsection of 34 or it's 85. The rules vary a little bit sometimes, depending on the source. Unfortunately, I can never find a concrete enough source.

Very cool. I will always love Tesla.

It's funny how one can always find Pony stuff, even when searching for formerly obscure scientists.

Also, if you'd like know, Tesla's eyes were grey-blue, which was unusual for a Serb. He claimed it was because his constant thinking turned them that color, but this was probably a joke; his mother also had grey eyes.

Oh yeah, the famous inventor for the Tesla coils. :) I really wish he could create the Red Alert based Tesla coils, now that is more epic than the real life version. :)

It would be more symbolic if the little tower in his hoof has no wire - there were stories about wireless energy (and the tower in his cutie mark is the grand finale of it, being the biggest wireless energy provider of all time - you could hold a Glowing light bulb in your hands. The project ran out of money because the wireless energy cant be controlled by companies (= no profit) )
Oh well, goes to my favs anyway
