Pyrite is an earth pony NPC who can be found on the path linking Midway Village from the Cloudopolis portal once the player has graduated. He plays a part in the Mindless Violins quest, where the player would need to interact with him for a few times. He also starts the It Belongs in a Museum quest once Mindless Violins is completed.
- "I tried making my own treasure maps once. I never found anything with them, though. I think I’m missing something."
- Pyrite's talent mark is shown as a wooden mallet, despite the 2D graphic artwork depicting his talent mark as a mineral instead.
