BlackGryph0n is a former US navy sailor who draws, animates, and composes music dedicated as fan labor to My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Most of his drawings, and all of his animations are done in Adobe Flash. He is well known for creating the video "Twilightlicious" as well as most of the rest of the "Ponylicious " series. He has proven he can edit ponies into a photograph. He draws the cover art for all of his own songs. A lot of the voice actors he works with prefer to remain anonymous, but he has had Rina Chan voice act for him on more than one occasion, and he also has his sister, Susannah, voice act for him as well; such as in the case of Vinyl Scratch has a Message and Rainbowlicious. He's also done a cover of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" with Michelle Creber, the voice actress for Apple Bloom. He followed that up with a parody entitled "Tweet It" with Creber, Natalie Sharp, Andrea Libman (in character as Pinkie Pie) and a rap by MandoPony featuring cameos from Bronies, writers and voice actors from the show. Before having become a fan of My little Pony, he did a lot of photography and live videos of wildlife.
BlackGryph0n is now a singer on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. He can be heard singing with the chorus on the song "In Our Town" in The Cutie Map - Part 1 as well as the songs in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games.
BlackGryph0n’s ponylicious series is collection of videos that currently feature five of the main 6. The first of these was Twilightlicious featuring Twilight Sparkle as she says the line, "I'm the T to the W-I, L-I-G-H-T, and ain't no other pony troll it down like me. I'm Twilightlicious." Twilight's voice clip was posted by Tara Strong, Twlight's voice actor in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, on Twitter. The Rarity Rhymes was made with a recording of Tabitha St. Germain, the voice actor for Rarity. The rest of the videos follow a similar theme. Finally, a recording of Peter New's voice was used to create the latest video, Applelicious. The video Message from Rarity was removed from YouTube when Hasbro claimed copyright infringement. However, it can still be seen on BlackGryph0n's deviantArt account.
