Gasp! Dear Celestia, what have I done? I have destroyed the fabric of reality! I have doomed the world to complete and total fallout. I..... forgot to write a blog yesterday! EVERYBODY PANIC!
No, Im just kidding. Im sure you didnt miss my blog THAT much. But hey, its the thought that counts.
Hello, Everypony! And welcome back to the Juggerpony Blog! I am your host, the Juggerpony. And today, we are doing to be going to back and continuing an older post I made about a week ago. That post would be "Defending Kind Sombra". In the post, I basically defended a normally hated villain, and argued as to why he was great. THis villain is none other than the infamous Crystal Tyrant and Lord of Shadows himself, King Sombra. Now, must tell everyone that, since the new Fiendship is Magic is considered non-canon, it will NOT be included in this review, unfortunatley. I read it, and loved it. Still, it is not canon ;(
When we last left off We were discussing how Sombra had left a lasting impression on the Crystal Ponies. Still in the first part of the actual Crystal Empire Empire. In this blog, we will be talking about his dark magic, and his final invasion of the Crystal Empire!
Ok, so lets skip a little ways into the episode, when we come across Sombras Throne room. This is the scene where twilight uses a spell fueled by hatred and rage to find a secret door. Now, a lot of people have referred to the Hatred spell as "Sombra Magic". If this is the case, than this also shows that Sombra was not just a creature of fear and malice, but also one of hatred and anger, which would also explain his cruel treatment to his subjects. But then there is the door. The door that is opened by the same spell, and reveals your darkest fears. For Twilight, that was rejection from her mentor, Celestia. And for Spike, it is Twilight rejecting him. It makes me wonder, though, what Sombras secret fear is. For a pony known as the Lord of Shadows, and the Tyrant of Fear. What would be his greatest fear? Man, I could answer a lot of these questions if the comic book was canon. Darn you, canon! You are ruining my blog!
After Twilight conquers Sombras second greatest weapon (Stairs), she finds the Crystal heart. The Crystal Heart is known to be the instrument that, as said in my first blog, brings light and happiness to the land of Equestria. Sombra, to maintain control of the Empire, hid the heart to where no one could find it. And this is sort of where Sombras villainy shines. He has a Back-up plan. He thoroughly thought his plan out, making sure to get rid of the one thing he knew could end him, and hiding it to where not even Celestia and Luna could find it. But then, he had a back-up plan to his back-up plan. His second back up plan was that if anyone found the crystal heart, an alarm would go off, allowing the dark crystals back into the Crystal Empire, Love shield or not. And I find it interesting that if at least one Dark crystal is within the Empire, Sombra can still control it from the outside.
This back-up plan almost gave him complete re-control of the Empire. If it wasnt for Twilights quick thinking, and Spikes bravery, Sombra would once again be the Crystal Tyrant.
Guys, this villain is great. That is really all that needs to be said about him. Yes, he looks like an OC at the beginning, and yes, he looks like the cloud monster from Lost. But he is still a great villain. WHile not my first favorite (That honor goes to Tirek) he is still one of my favorites.
