Big Macintosh (sometimes spelled "Big McIntosh") or "Big Mac" is the official name for a supporting pony from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. He is the elder brother of Applejack and Apple Bloom. He lives with Granny Smith and his aforementioned sisters at Sweet Apple Acres. Big Mac rarely speaks, and when he does it's usually limited to either an "Eeyup" or "Nnope."
In fan works
In certain fan labor, especially that of the "clop" variety, he is depicted or stated as being very muscular[R 4] and "well-endowed".
Big Mac is known for being paired up with Fluttershy, whether she is depicted as female or "Futashy". On occasion he is also shipped with Rainbow Dash (MacinDash), Rarity (Rarimac), or even Princess Celestia[R 5] on a premise of "opposites attract". Princess Luna has also been seen as a suggested love interest, possibly inspired by their interaction in the IDW comic series. He has been paired with Cheerilee, with this ship seeing a great increase after the episode Hearts and Hooves Day.
A more recent pairing is Big Mac and Marble Pie due to the events of Hearthbreakers, in which the pair bond over being ponies of few words and act bashful and shy around one another, constantly blushing and frequently making eye contact. Even more recent is Big Mac and Sugar Belle due to them becoming an official couple in Hard to Say Anything.
