IMO, when a character is so barely, incidentally in a cropped picture, they shouldn't get tagged. I would remove Pinkie Pie from the tags on that image.

In other cases, that's what the tags [solo focus](/tags/solo+focus) and [offscreen character](/tags/offscreen+character) are for - although unfortunately, there isn't a way to connect *which* characters are the focus and which are offscreen.

Unfortunately, this would fail (without further work to create an exception list) because some characters get multiple character-categorized tags applied in tandem: for example, [golden harvest](/tags/golden+harvest)/[carrot top](/tags/carrot+top), or [sci-twi](/tags/sci-dash-twi)/[twilight sparkle](/tags/twilight+sparkle)

It also fails in the case when other characters are depicted but not present - for example, a picture of Twilight Sparkle with a photo of the mane six displayed on the wall could get all of the character tags, but be a "solo" picture because only Twi is actually there.
