|~ Rover convinces Rarity to find gems for them.|
The Diamond Dogs (named Rover, Fido, and Spot) are minor antagonists in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. They are trio of greedy jewel finding dogs.
Rover was voiced by Scott McNeil, Fido was voiced by Garry Chalk, and Spot was voiced by Lee Tockar.
They appear only in the season 1 episode "A Dog, and Pony Show". They are the main antagonists of the episode. They kidnapped Rarity to find gems for them after seeing her using her gem-finding spell, though the first attempt to kidnap Spike, thinking that he was the gem finder. In the end, Rarity makes them regret kidnapping her until her friends arrived to rescue her with spoils.
Rover is a medium-sized dog and the leader of the trio. His two followers are Fido, a large-sized dog, and Spot, who is a bulldog-like a small dog. Their name is taken from David Bowie's album Diamond Dogs.".
- All three diamond dogs are based on the Lord of the Rings character Gollum.
- Fido's voice sounds somewhat similar to Animal from The Muppets media and Eduardo from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
- The Diamond Dogs are the least recurring antagonists in the show, appearing in only one episode in Season 1 and appeared as minor characters in Equestria Girls as teenage humans. They were mentioned in the series finale, but the Dogs never made another physical appearance in the series.
- The Diamond Dogs later appear in one of MLP's Rainbow Rocks shorts, in which they appear as teenage humans who were first seen digging in school grounds for diamonds, the eager to help human Rarity bring the grand piano in the music room (due to them being interested in her diamond hairband).
- It is possible that they were inspired by Crunch the Rockdog, a villain from the first generation of MLP.
