Buttercup is sitting alone at a table in the school cafeteria and having lunch when all of a sudden a group of rollerskaters burst inside. They skate all over the place and present themselves as the Derbytantes to Buttercup. Eventually, Buttercup becomes one of the Derbytantes.
They made a cameo at Princess's birthday party.
It is revealed in this episode that Maylyn is bad at math.
Maylyn cameos in this episode as part of one of Buttercup's/Buttlyn's video compilations.
They take part in an official Death Ball match and recruit Bubbles as a new member when they see her doing death ball skills.
They take part in a Death Ball tournament and try to clear their names when the main host gets hit which they succeed when one of the other team members is been found out as the culprit when he didn't want the host to change the rules.
Every member of the Derbytantes has a nickname that ends with "-lyn".
Maylyn (Voice actor: Kate Higgins) is the leader of the Derbytantes. Every conversation of the gang is mainly brought forth by Maylyn. She is bad at math, as revealed in Buttercup vs. Math.
Jaylyn looks pretty much identical to most other members of the group.
Bobbysuzeraelyn has undeniably the most extraordinary appearance out of all members of the gang. Her appearance has all the features of a full-grown man, yet she still speaks with a girly voice. Because of this, she is the most controversial out of all of them.
"Buttlyn" is Buttercup's nickname as a member of the Derbytantes.
"Bublyn" is Bubbles' nickname as a member of the Derbytantes.
Apart from the above, there are at least three more (mostly unnamed) members of the Derbytantes, all of whom look identical to Jaylyn except for hair color. The color of their emblem on helmets and rollerskates also slightly differ. One of them was revealed to be named Haylyn in The Long Skate Home.
In general, many of the lifestyle choices associated with punk culture are applied to the Derbytantes. They like to spend their pastimes skating, eating pizza, making pots (making pots is not part of the punk culture) and trashing stuff.
Another pastime of theirs is playing "Death Ball". The rules of Death Ball are currently unknown, but it appears to be a variation of dodge-ball where the main objective is to knock the other players using a purple ball decorated with a skull. At the end of the episode Princess Buttercup, Bubbles says "...And Death Ball!"
Rollerskates are a central part of the Derbytantes. Maylyn claims that the Derbytantes never take off their skates, not even while skateboarding.
The Derbytantes' communication is influenced by street slang.
