Babs Seed is a medium-brown pony of average height and weight and is about the same age as the Cutie Mark Crusaders. She has a red mane and tail with a pink strip running through the mane. Her eyes are green and she has freckles. As of Bloom and Gloom, her cutie mark has been a pair of scissors with apple-shaped handles.
Babs used to have low self-esteem issues due to bullying for lack of cutie mark, which caused her to exhibit bully behaviour. This has since been eliminated and she doesn't bully or have low self-esteem anymore. Babs used to be a Cutie Mark Crusader until she got her cutie mark, and is still a good friend of the Crusaders. She also has mane-styling as her special talent.
