  1. Don't get me wrong, 'Keep Calm and Flutter On' was a great episode, and it's great that discord's a good guy and all... Or is it? Discord was, undoubtedly, the best villain ever. Not just of the show, but of all of entertainment. A bit psychotic, completely random, and with no regard for anything but his own personal enjoyment made him one of the most entertaining and interesting villains ever. Plus his voice is just fantastic. He goes right next to Vaas Montenegro in terms of total badassness as an evil guy. And they made him a good guy. So what now? If they bring discord back, then they have a few options, none of which are as good as the original. 1. He comes back and helps them out with his magic. It would follow the line of the show, yes, but it would be no where near as fun as when he was evil. 2. He turns evil again. This would be entertaining, but horrible, because it would show that 'friendship,' the key thingy in the show, is not as important or effective as previously portrayed. 3.He completely disappears. That would be just lame. So what do you think? Has Hasbro ruined the best villain of all time, or could something be done to continue making him a stellar character without conflicting with the running themes in the show?
  2. There's been a lot of talk lately about the rampant villain reformations in this show lately. Although I do love a great, truly evil villain as much as the next fan, I can also see how reformation is just a natural part of Friendship is Magic's progression. That said, we are running out of villains, and fast! We already know Queen Chrysalis and Tirek are returning in season 8. Then, I saw this posted on My Little Pony's Facebook page: The clip they chose to use, along with what Megan McCarthy had to say about how "No one’s bad, they’re just broken”, and reforming all the villains, much to our dismay. The implication is strong... I think she's getting reformed. At first, my knee-jerk reaction was dismay. Chrysalis is an awesome menace, and I'd hate to see that end. However, I did imagine how this reformation could come about in a way that would be believable, and, dare I say, awesome. We know that Chrysalis has vowed revenge on Starlight Glimmer and escaped. While it is possible she has another hive, I don't think that's the case. Instead, I imagine she will need to team up with a more powerful ally to exact her revenge. Who is one of the most powerful villains we've seen thus far? Tirek. Chrysalis, needing an ally, would free Tirek and as a tag team, begin to steal all the magic they can. Let's say that they're pretty successful. Again, the goal here is to get back at Starlight; I don't suppose Chrysalis thought ahead to what happens after that. Tirek betrayed Discord the last time he formed any kind of alliance. Discord, of course, was completely caught off-guard by this, and put up no fight. Chrysalis, however, might be able to put up a fight. That is, if she gets an assist from a certain army. Perhaps being overwhelmed with Tirek's growing powers, Chrysalis would need to work together with her former Changeling hive, Thorax, and perhaps even Starlight and the Mane 6 too. Somehow, in this process, I could totally imagine her seeing the light, and giving up her revenge plot for the greater good. In short, Chrysalis' reformation would have to be preceded by her reluctantly allying with the "good guys". I think this would be pretty sweet, and definitely not a reformation that feels unrealistic or pressed for time. What do you think? How else would you reform her? Or do you still think she's a baddie forever?
  3. Throughout the series, Many MLP villains have been reformed, even ones that we never imagined would reach that. However I'm under the impression that not everypony in Equestria is worth redeeming. Chances are that there are ponies out there so mean, nasty, despicable, etc. that all the friendship lessons would be just wasted on them. I imagine that ponies of that caliber would do such cruel acts on other ponies such as verbally and even physically abusing them. Is there a chance of there being any villains beyond the point of hope for reformation in MLP: FIM
  4. We've seen a lot of reformed villains/antagonists in this series. Some I agree with more than others. But the one that I am not the most supportive of is that of Gilda the Griffon. Now from what I have been led to believe, a number of fans wanted Gilda to be reformed, and got their wish in "The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone". However I on the other hand feel as though Gilda was better off as an antagonist/bully/whatever. So you can probably guess that I don't exactly support this reformation. But I am willing to compromise. Maybe they could have gone through with having Gilda rescue Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, but instead of doing the 180 and being all nice with them. I would have had Gilda come to some form of reconciliation with Rainbow Dash yet still retaining a fraction her cold, gruff persona. Like if Pinkie Pie tried to hug her, Gilda would shove her off and tell her: "GET YOUR HOOVES OFF OF ME!!" or something along those lines. Yet Gilda would still shake wing/hoof with Rainbow Dash relatively slowly before making friends with one of the other griffons. Thus Pinkie and Rainbow Dash's mission would still be complete. What I'm saying is that Gilda would still be reformed, but she would still manage to keep a small percentage of her antagonistic traits. That way she'd still be somewhat more believable. MLP has done it this way before. Case in point: Discord. Discord may have been reformed, but he still commits various acts of mischief and chaos against the ponies, even after being reformed. What do you think? Should Gilda have kept just a portion of her mean personality traits, even after being reformed?
  5. I have heard many things about the reformation of Discord. Some say he is ruined, (drama kings/queens) some say it is genius, some say it's so-so, and others say they will wait to see him before judging him. I am here to shed some new info on the subject for those who don't know and input my two bits. _________________________________________________________________________________ Within the book 'The Elements of Harmony: The Official Guidebook', It states that Meghan McCarthy says, and I quote, "For a character like Discord, 'reforming' hum allows us to tell new stories with his character. He gets to be the not-always-reliable ally instead of the known enemy." _________________________________________________________________________________ And so to paraphrase, she says that Discord becomes one of us. A unpredictable friend who may be there for you or not based on his reasons instead of someone we love to hate. Besides, we didn't love to hate him, we loved to love him. So in that way, he fails as a villain.
