Does anyone else's favorite character change depending on the season of the show? Whenever someone asks for my favorite pony, I genuinely struggle to give a concise answer.

If I say "Pinkie Pie" people assume I also like the screechy, flanderized vexation of the spirit she devolved into. Sweetie Belle is still fairly enjoyable, but not anywhere near as much as her appearances in seasons 2~4; I might even go as far as to say she has become a teensy bit bland in recent seasons. I had a brief honeymoon phase with Twilight after she attained God-hood due to her overall shift to more quirky/ awkward yet still endearing personality traits. But even then, that aspect was soon eclipsed by the newly reformed Starlight. With only one season left to go, I think it's safe to say that neither Cozy Glow nor Ocellus will overtake Glim-glim completely, meaning that the latter will likely remain in my #1 spot for the longest duration out of any character to date. But thinking back to how utterly obsessed I was with Pinkie back when I first discovered the show in 2011, or my budding adoration for Sweetie Belle for what seemed like an eternity, it is hard to compare that level of affection to what I feel for Starlight currently. Sure, she's by far the most consistently enjoyable character to watch post-S5 and I look forward to pretty much any screen-time she gets... but I suppose I just don't feel the same level of "passion" for her as I did for PP & SB back in the early days.

For the sake of reference, I am not one of those people who thinks FiM has been getting worse and worse as time goes on. Personally, my ranking of the seasons would be something like this:
5>4>6>7=8>3=1>2. So, my lack of enthusiasm for Starlight Glimmer clearly isn't a result of poor seasonal quality, at least not from my perspective.

For the first three seasons, all the mane six were my equal favorites. After that, Rarity shined through as my one favorite and continues to hold that position, though with dwindling interest ever since.

Yes, mine has changed a few times. Early days it was Pinkie, but soon moved to Rarity, then to Twilighting pre-wings. I've landed on Rainbow Dash for a while now. There came an eventual point that her awesomeness could no longer be ignored. I also came to like her overall arch towards being a Bolt, starting as a dream but continuing to work at it step by step until she made it.

I found my favorites pretty early on and come season 2 they were set pretty much in stone
