Why Fluttershy is a Jedi

Now I know that Fluttershy is not actually a Jedi and this is all just head-canon but its fun so roll with it.

 

She might be fearful rather often. But no Jedi is perfect. However, she often controls her reactions and emotions so as not to upset, hurt or scare others. There is no Emotion, there is Peace.

 

She has been shown to be able to set aside her own ego and seek out those better trained in an area if an animal needs help she cant give. There is no Ignorance there is Knowledge.

 

She prefers a calm and well-kept environment around her home. She is really the opposite of Discord in every way but that is why they get along so well. There is no Chaos there is Harmony.

 

She shows power when it is utterly needed but never before. It's only when others are in danger that she brings her own force to bear on the offender. There is no Passion there is Serenity.

 

She can be seen to have the ability to control others or at least animals via her stare. Which is a Force power. It is known as Animal Friendship or Animal Bond and allows the Jedi to control and to a lesser degree connect with the animal via the Force which really works with her character.

 

She also has shown that she is a great mediator and reformer via reforming at least in part Discord in season 3. This is a clear trait of a Jedi Consular. As is her regular willingness to be diplomatic and forgive those that seek it. She is often the voice of compassion and reason and thus I feel her role would fit the Counsular path.

 

As such I would bet that her lightsaber would be a green hue symbolizing her connection to the force and all that it touches. I would guess her saber style to be Form 3 Soresu the all-defensive form as she is not the type to harm anyone if she can avoid it. So she would sort of be a less combative and wiser version of Kenobi for the move only fans of the series. For those interested in the EU I would liken her to Master Fay.

 

Her house is outside of the borders of Ponyville proper in the forest where she spends her time communing with nature and its inhabitants. Which is a classic trait of the “old hermit”. So she would also be akin to Old Ben. While she is not against working with others she just does not need to be in the mix all the time. Which again is a Jedi trait One does not seek adventure but does what the Force calls them to do. In short, she is displaying many traits of a Jedi and I find that awesome.

Does it really matter whether this is just head-canon or not? It is not a theory but a confirmed fact that Fluttershy is ten times the Jedi that Jake Skywalker will ever be. :fluttershy:

Yea but some people take things so literally, I had to put in that disclaimer. 

Do you think there would be interest in Jedi or Sith traits of other MLP characters?

If I were to compared what  kind of Jedi Fluttershy is to the other Jedi, it would be Yoda. They both don't value using violent in order to gain victory.

What about attatchment?( All those animals and her friends). It leads to the fear of loss and its a path to the dark side

Over-attachment is the problem, not attachment itself. Possessiveness is the problem, not friendship. She, in fact, proves that she is able to master her attachment by letting go of the animals she loves when its time for them to return to the wild or if she needs to turn them over to more experienced help. So she, in fact, does not fear loss or at least not often. She accepts that loss is natural and allows it to happen when it is time. Thank you for asking this because it was a perfect item to cover that I had not thought of.

Then flutterbat is her Darth shy form i guess

Not an entirely bad comparison. Total greed and selfish-interest with not care for the damage done.

Not unlike Vader. Her thoughts where twisted by the dark side of the force. She wanted to protect. But ended up destroying
