  1. As the title asked, who would win if those two ever met? Post your vote and reasoning here! If you think another villain could beat Mr.Shadows, then select Other and post who you think it could be. As for me, I'd say Tirek as he could easily drain all magic from Mr.Shadows. Altho he would need to be in his 3rd and final form, but if anybody could come close to beating this guy it'd be Tirek. He's likely the smartest villain and, after the events of S9, is still stated as the most dangerous FIM villain.
  2. To celebrate my love of Stygian being rekindled by The L-Train's new fantastic music project, Pillars of Equestria, I wrote an origin story for him on how he was convinced by the Pony of Shadows to turn evil.
  3. Having Starlight and Trixie together in the movie means it has to take pace after "No Second Prances" sense that's the first time they met. Not having the Royal Guard would explain why Celestia had Flash Magnus be the new drill sargent after season 7. Having it take place then would also explain why the changelings and the Pillers of Equestria were not in the movie but I'm not sure about the yaks but if the movie takes place after "No Second Prances" the mane 6 haven't been to Yakyakistan yet, unless you count Pinkie kinda. But griffins probably wouldn't want to help, and sense Ember just became Dragon Lord she probably needs to impose her rule, and that I don't think the ponies would trust all the dragons yet to listen to Ember. As for the map expanding, remember the map was broken after "The Cutie Re-Mark", which would also explain why it took so long and that Mount Aris needed to be repaired and the new train station there. As for Twilight saying "This happened while we were gone?" could be when they went after the Pony of Shadows instead of the Storm King. Why Sandbar mentioned The Storm King but not Queen Chrysalis nor the Pony of Shadows is that no pony would probably know that Chrysalis replaced the mane 6, the princesses, etc and that the Pony of Shadows never appeared in public, and why Apple Bloom was recapping the movie in "surf and/or Turf" was because The Storm King was what directly affected the hippogriffs. This I the best I can do saying it takes place between season 6 episodes 6-7 and explaining how. But there is one thing that contradicts all of this unless you can help me, the new throne room, it is possible they were working on a new throne room for a while and was finished in the movie in a different part of the castle and was going to turn the old throne room into something else but for what happened to the new one in the movie they had to go back to the old one while that was being repaired, but the whole of Canterlot got repaired when they retuned all the magic at the end of the movie? Write below if you can think of any reason why Celestia and Luna would still be using the old throne room until season 8.
  4. Note: There are unmasked spoilers for the S7 finale in this thread, so if you're weary of them, be careful! With the S7 finale revealed comes a "brand-new" villain. Back in Castle Mane-ia, we were introduced to the Pony of Shadows, though it was done primarily as a joke. Early speculation indicated this Pony of Shadow was Tirek, because the cloak from both figures looked identical. However, that's not the case, and the Pony of Shadows is his own entity. This opens to a lot of theories of who the PoS is, what he does, and what purpose he has. What are your theories of the Pony of Shadows? Please lay as many as possible. Don't be afraid to post a crackpot theory and run with it if you feel you can. Given the show's history, it might be there. I have five of them in mind. If not taking any of the comics prior to this season's tie-ins into account, he may've been responsible for Luna transforming into Nightmare Moon in the first place. He was able to channel her biggest insecurities and transform them into eventual jealousy and bitterness of Celly. The Pony of Shadows's real form is a generic pony. Every pony in this series is stylized to give it some character, but the PoS is the opposite and takes form after feeding on negative energy. To go into specifics with the negative energy, the Pillars of Magic trapped in Limbo each have a moment that eats them up so much they can't let go and truly rest in peace. The PoS takes advantage of their guilt by eating it to create shape and generate grand powers, some of which copycat the souls he victimizes. The only way they can defeat him is for them to finally let it go and put it behind them. The Pony of Shadows is able to trigger each of their biggest regrets. Think about how Sombra lays a trap in the Crystal Castle, where opening the door triggers their biggest fear at that moment. Instead of a dark object, the PoS himself triggers it whenever he can. This tactic humanizes our heroes further and makes the PoS look like an even eviler scumball than he already is. The Pony of Shadows is a Legend of Magic himself, one that went bad. The Legends arc seems to be tapping forth the eight magical items that Twilight stated in TCM, Part 2. If the PoS is a Legend of Magic, that'd make seven, one for each of the Mane ponies. Once you consider what Starlight did and how much she's overcome since Re-Mark, she may be able to channel in the PoS's biggest flaws and fears and see him as her. If it goes this route, I think it makes sense for the PoS to be redeemed, so the Pillars of Ancient Equestria can unite as one.
  5. So, what's everyone's theories for who the pony of shadows is? We know it was mentioned in castlemania, and we also know that its supposedly the villain of this season's finale. We also know that there's supposedly an image of him in the shadowlock arc, of a changeling looking alicorn demon. we also know that The Legends of magic series will possibly end with him being featured in the final issue. So what are you theories about who he is? it seems unlikely its going to end up being a piece of luna given what we've seen so far.
  6. Well, we know the Pony of Shadows will be the villain of the season finale, a character whose first existence was first known way back in S4, Castle Mane-ia to be precise. As most of us know, that title was a shout-out to the beloved videogame franchise Castlevania. Other than the title, the reference where pretty minimal. The castle, which was only for the ambient, and the soon to be seen Pony of Shadow, which clearly reference the titular Lords of Shadow continuity. The reference is clear in the name, but it's likely we won't see any CV references from him when he shows-up. But likely doesn't mean guaranteed, and a reference or two won't hurt right? This is supposedly the Pony of Shadows, and a Shadowlock arc spoilers if you haven't read the comics At simple sight, there's not much Castlevania to be found other than being demonic in appearance (which are a recurring, if not THE main threat in the franchise). We can discard the Lords of Shadow themselves, as he doesn't resemble a werewolf, a vampire, nor Death (unless he does necromancy ), rather, his hair has a bit of air of Gabriel Belmont, Dracula in the Lords of Shadow franchise. But in general, his more ambiguous, but clearly demonic appearance points more towards Lucius Malfo... I mean, Satan, seldom mentioned in the original series, but main antagonist in the Lords of Shadow series We may have to wait the episode to see if any come out. The comics though, did a couple of things that can be compared to Satan: The only known image of the Pony of Shadows in an ancient drawing, may be a reference to the travel book in the Lords of Shadow, which is pictured in the last spoiler above. Second, the Pony of Shadows has at least one descendant in Shadowlock, that can be compared to Satan's acolytes. The main differences though, is that Shadowlock hasn't shown any demonic traits, nor abilities that other unicorns can't do, plus he's the only known descendant and an enemy of his ancestor. The acolytes however, are three, they have clear demonic abilities and some unnatural physical traits, plus they are his allies
  7. So, its looks like haber might be back to have written the finale despite having gone over to work on skylanders for a while. thoughts?
  8. I waited for the dvds to come out. Just finished season 4. Purdy good. But I am absoutely flabbergasted that they never resolved the pony of shadows, and Fluttershy's friggin bat fang. Flabbergasted isn't even a strong enough word. There is no word strong enough. How could they show these ominous cliffhangers, and then just never mention it again? Are they actually saving these things for season 5? I doubt it. I mean, I hope so, but I'd be shocked if they ever mentioned these things again. The Flutterbat fang is the one that gets me the most. It was so ominous and creepy! Did they do that just to f*ck with us? WHY??!! Tell me, Hasbro! Just tell me why!!!! This was worse than when they failed to reveal the Man in Black's name on Lost. Thoughts?
