Role in the Comics
When Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy got split up from the rest of the their friends they fall into a pit where they get sticks in their manes, they walk through a forest and see the Chupacabra looking at them viciously and Fluttershy notices that, Twilight says to her that Chupacabras only eat goats. After Twilight finishes her sentence she and Fluttershy look up at their manes and see that the sticks resemble goat horns and the Chupacabra runs at them and snarls as one of them yells run. As Twilight and Fluttershy are running from the Chupacabra from the other directions coming at them are Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie (which where being chased by Vampric-Jackalopes) and Rarity and Applejack, as then they all crash into each-other and form a ball which goes down a cliff, after they reach the bottom, Twilight Sparkle looks up at the Chupacabra and the Jackalopes and says "Well, it looks like a death-defying fall might keep those guys at bay. I hope that they don't start to make their way down here." As then the Chupacabra and the Vampric Jackalopes start fighting as Fluttershy says that the Vampric Jackalope and the Chupacabra are natural enemies as they are fighting over who has the dominance to eat them. The reactions of the Mane 6 (aside from Fluttershy, who looks on with interest) suggest that the fight between the Chubacabra and Jackalopes was quite gruesome.
- Fluttershy said that the chupacabra is a male when really it is unknown what the true gender of the chupacabra is.
- The Chupacabra in the comic is based on a cryptid of the same name, the Chupacabra, and has said to be sighted in Texas, Mexico and Puerto Rico in which is known for attacking and killing livestock (primarily goats).
