  1. So, I was watching one of the episodes in MLP, and I though: Are ponies way overpowered compared to humans? I mean, sure, we have access to nukes, missiles, jets, tanks, warships, and explosives, and intelligence. However, in one scene in MLP, Starlight Glimmer and most unicorns showed the ability to teleport from one location to another at light speed, something which humans haven’t even invented yet. And, Twilight Sparkle and other unicorns have showed the ability to spawn and transform items from cups to birds, out of thin air. Pegasi, on the other hoof, have the ability to control the weather and create natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning storms, and typhoons. They also have the ability to create rainbow nukes, as seen from Rainbow Dash in one episode, and the ability to summon lightning from the sky. Also, there are ponies like Princess Celestia and Luna who are capable of moving the sun and moon with a bit of power. Besides, in a fanfic, Fallout: Equestria, the main pony, Littlepip, who is a unicorn, showed the ability to lift stuff like train cars, which weigh 30 tons, while the most strongest man in the world, only managed to lift close to 6 tons. She also is capable of lifting stuff like huge rocks, bookshelves , and wagons, and has shown the ability to create weapons out of blood, which apparently is impossible on Earth. The other characters, have also shown to create magic shields, and have the ability to fly. Soooo, what do you guys think? Are ponies really wayyy powerful than humans, or are humans more powerful than ponies? Tell me below!
  2. I'm speaking in the context of the Friendship is Magic canon, does Twilight have the potential to turn into a villain like Nightmare Moon and Daybreaker? Since Luna, Celestia, and Twilight have been rulers of Equestria, have flowing manes, are taller than the average pony, are alicorns, and have the responsibility of raising the sun and moon, is seems likely that Twilight would also have a potential evil alternate form like Celestia and Luna. Twilight's evil alternate form could be similar to Daybreak in the sense that she didn't become a reality but her potential to become a reality was there as seen in Starlight's dream.
  3. Yup, here we go again. https://www.deviantart.com/cloudmistdragon/art/King-Sombra-is-Discord-s-Creation-Fan-Theory-818804040 Except this time...it's not just about him not being dead. Overture I think it’s safe to say that the series finale to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was not what either followers or skeptics of my past two theories on King Sombra were expecting. On one hand, to the dismay of many Sombra fans, Sombra did not appear in any of the final episodes. However, on the other hand, I only had to make minor updates to my previous theory in contrast to the major ones I initially expected to have to make. Though it did initially contain some inaccuracies that I had to correct, the final episodes, despite lacking Sombra, actually provided more evidence that points to my theory being on the right track. You should already know just from the title that this theory will focus on a different subject than the first two, but it is a subject that ties directly back to the notion that our shadow king will never be truly gone, since there is no way to deny now that Sombra’s apparent immortality has something to do with Discord. One may ask though, what is the point of making another theory now? The show is over, right? As I’ve discussed before, there is very much still purpose in discussing theories and possibilities, as not only did the show leave much to speculate and answer for ourselves, but the MLP franchise itself is far from over. Furthermore, the Kojima-style storytelling of “everything’s a lie” that the first of the final three episodes went with feels intended to motivate us to do our own digging to find the truth for ourselves. So let’s get right in… Discord’s Powers The things we are told about the show’s biggest plot twist, the biggest lie that completely went against what most fans were expecting, that do get confirmed to us by the show itself are Grogar being Discord, Discord being the one who brought the villains back as a way to test Twilight Sparkle, and most notably in relation to this theory, Discord being the one who “resurrected” King Sombra. Yes, as you may have noticed, I am still maintaining my habit of putting “resurrected” in quotations because there is so much about Discord’s “power of resurrection” that demands scrutiny. If he can just bring the dead back to life, why didn’t he ever do it before? If he always had that kind of power, it’s hard to believe that even the Elements of Harmony could’ve brought him down in his days as a villain. Not only that, but take note of the way he brought Sombra back in The Beginning of the End. He didn’t use his chaos magic, but a symbol on the ground with a shape similar to that of Sombra’s dark crystals. The color of the symbol on the ground in this scene was blue too, while Discord’s magic is normally yellow. In Twilight’s Kingdom, when his magic gets sucked out by Tirek, the color of his magic is...black, the color of shadow. Interestingly, even while Discord was pretending to be Grogar, his magic still maintained a color of yellow...in addition to an aura of shadow. When Discord’s magic was absorbed by Grogar’s Bell, the magic’s color was yellow and black. And what kind of magic did Discord use to teleport the villains to his lair? Shadow magic. Bearing these facts in mind, it seems much more likely that what Discord used to bring Sombra back wasn’t “the power of resurrection”, but the power of darkness. What difference does it make? A huge one. If Discord could not tap the power of the forces of darkness, he couldn’t possibly have been able to impersonate Grogar. He didn’t just summon Tirek and Cozy Glow straight from Tartarus, he was also able to utilize Grogar’s Crystal Ball to its full effect, recreating images of the time where Grogar’s monsters roamed Equestria and even used Grogar’s Bell to reclaim his chaos magic. And it’s not just Discord either who must know how to use dark magic to recreate the past. In fact, it’s even been proven in the show that not only do Celestia and Twilight have the ability to use dark magic, but alicorn magic, in Princess Twilight Sparkle, takes the form of Sombra’s trademark green and purple magic when used on the potion Twilight needs to drink to see the past. Almost every instance of dark magic in the show is faithful to a central theme of recreating the past and both casting and dispelling illusions of fear. Yet not one spell in the show, dark magic, alicorn magic, or otherwise, has ever been used to call back a creature from the dead… One more fact we know that would definitely be consistent with my theory that it was shadow magic that was used to bring Sombra back, not “resurrection magic”, is the fact that Grogar was a real creature, not a character that Discord made up, as confirmed by the show. Every image Discord showed in the Crystal Ball was a depiction of a real object or a real event that happened in the past, and one of those events was Grogar summoning monsters from the dark to terrorize Equestria. Discord even vows to send Sombra back to the darkness he came from if he does not comply with his deal… Yeah, I do believe at this point it’s safe to say that it’s much more likely that Sombra’s return was the result of him being called back from the shadows, not “resurrected from the dead”. Occam’s Razor would agree, the former solution is the much simpler one and much more likely to be the correct one. Regardless of how Sombra came back though, it’s only scratching the surface of the wealth of clues we are given in the show that things are not what they appear to be. To reiterate, we are flat-out told by the show that everything we were made to believe involving the mess with Sombra returning and trying to take over Equestria was a lie...but we are not told in-depth exactly how everything was a lie. That’s where the next part of my theory comes in… King Sombra is Discord’s Agent Again, let’s begin with what the show confirmed. It was actually Discord who brought King Sombra back, and thus, he was the one who sent Sombra to the Crystal Empire to attempt to take it over as a way to test Twilight and her friends. Seems straightforward enough. So what is the reason for wanting more details on what exactly happened? Honestly, I’d have trouble only coming up with one. First of all, Discord’s scheme of only sending one villain to test Twilight and her friends, followed by three, only makes sense if he knows in advance that Sombra will not submit to him. Though anyone could predict that the villains would need time to learn how to work together, only someone who knows Sombra well enough could predict that he wouldn’t go along with the plan. And as far as the show tells us, Discord does not know Sombra well...at least as we are told. If we only go by what we are shown in the show, we are left to see that Discord sent Sombra to the Crystal Empire, right after he vowed to “destroy anypony who got in his way”, unsupervised. What would Discord have done had Sombra actually killed someone? The scene where he talks to Twilight and her friends in the castle not only proves that he was not constantly monitoring Sombra, but also makes it very likely that he knew Sombra would destroy the Tree of Harmony. After all, it is in this scene where he expresses his disdain over Twilight and her friends resolving to defeat Sombra with the Elements of Harmony rather than their own strength. Don’t forget either how he revealed his agenda was to test them...and this also isn’t the only time Discord has been hinted to have an agenda against the Tree… Going back to Princess Twilight Sparkle again, Discord revealed at the end that he was responsible for the Tree of Harmony’s rot, back in the time when he was a villain. However, after he got reformed, why did he do nothing to stop it despite the fact that the Tree’s life was in jeopardy? The answer can very easily be inferred as him just wanting to test Twilight and have fun as always...but is that really all? Remember that the Tree has been revealed to be not just a living thing, but a conscious being since What Lies Beneath. Even Discord at his worst has never killed anyone or put their lives at risk, so if we only go by what we are told by the show, it is very uncharacteristic of him to feel no remorse for not only putting the lives of innocent civilians in danger, but also getting a conscious being killed by bringing Sombra back. Does all of this mean that I believe that Discord used Sombra to kill the Tree without getting his hands dirty and in turn, used the Mane 6 to kill Sombra to cover his tracks, all without showing regard for the innocent lives of anybody who may have gotten caught in the crossfire? The answer...is no. Yes, despite how damning the evidence against Discord may seem, there is a way for him to be innocent. Hanlon’s Razor, always assume incompetence before malice. In my second King Sombra theory, you may remember a part where I talked about Sombra being sent to the Tree of Harmony as part of his destiny, meaning that the powers that be were responsible for the Tree’s destruction, not Discord. If it was the Tree that allowed itself to be destroyed so that it could adapt to a new form Equestria needed and help the Mane 6 realize that they didn’t need the Elements, Discord would be absolved of killing the Tree. That is the only way for him to be innocent if he is Sombra’s “mastermind”. The quotations should be enough to tell you that I don’t believe Sombra is Discord’s puppet, but his accomplice. One admittedly unsettling implication of The Ending of the End, that I, like many, hope and believe was unintended, was that Discord was using the villains as cogs to be thrown away and destroyed before they could have a chance to change their ways. I myself have no clue why Discord would not just state that he wanted to reform the villains, since not only would that make him look better, it would also make much more sense with what the show implied prior. Think back to how much Discord emphasized as Grogar the importance of working together. He never imagined that Tirek, Cozy Glow, and Chrysalis would ever use Grogar’s Bell against him, and it was the quest for the bell that almost got them to discover the magic of friendship. And even if the bell wasn’t used on him, wouldn’t the villains find out anyway that Discord was Grogar? After all, Discord would never release Grogar’s magic or use the bell to steal magic from innocent creatures. So that only leaves Sombra. Why did he seemingly never get a chance to change his ways? This goes back to what I believe, Discord and Sombra were working together. Think of the two’s relationship this way, and I’ll explain why this way makes the most sense. What if before Discord made his grand entrance as Grogar, he and Sombra talked over what they were going to do ahead of time? Sombra was the last to show up at the first meeting of the villains, and he was the only one who could’ve seen Grogar’s true form in the cave. Notice how when Discord draws the circle with the stick, the stick isn’t being levitated with magic, implying that Discord is holding it by hand. This makes it likely that Discord was not even in his Grogar disguise yet, as he had to levitate objects with his horns as Grogar. Also imagine if Sombra didn’t know Discord was Grogar. What chance would he have had to change his ways if Discord’s plan was to redeem the villains as is implied? Unless Discord’s idea of reforming Sombra was manipulating him to potentially kill ponies before getting himself blown up again. It doesn’t make any sense unless you consider the fact that Discord and Sombra could have very easily set everything up together. Also consider how torn up Twilight was in The Ending of the End, lamenting over how, in her own words, the victory she and her friends had against Sombra was “all a lie”. Keep in mind that they already knew beforehand that Discord could’ve stopped Sombra any time he wanted, so how does simply being reminded of their “very good-looking safety net” discourage them? The truth of Discord being the one who brought Sombra back leading Twilight to doubt herself only makes sense...if she is able to sense that Sombra was in on Discord’s plan. Doesn’t this, however, contradict Discord’s assertment that the fight was real and Sombra’s behavior throughout The Beginning of the End that seemed too good for an act? It does not, it’s consistent with my line of reasoning that Sombra was not some puppet being manipulated. I fully believe that he did what Discord told him to do for a goal of his own, to prove that he was the strongest being in Equestria, something he boasted about to Twilight and her friends. He could only prove such a thing by defeating them on an even playing field. That would explain perfectly why he didn’t use mind control on them and gave them a chance to defeat him instead of killing them when he had them trapped. He wanted them to escape and face him again, which is why he was so happy when he saw them enter the throne room… This would also explain how Discord’s plan would’ve given Sombra a chance to redeem himself as well. Discord must have known that the only way Sombra could’ve learned the power of friendship was through experiencing it for himself and realizing that it was indestructible. He couldn’t have learned this through the Elements being used on him, and while I still do not believe Discord instructed Sombra to destroy the Tree, Discord must have known that the Tree’s destruction was an inevitable part of Twilight’s destiny. After all, Twilight could not have fulfilled her destiny had she not realized that the Elements were never her true power. This also comes back to the focal topic of my last two theories...Discord’s plan to reform Sombra only makes sense if Sombra is not dead, but an immortal shadow. This tie-in is not how I intend to conclude everything though, since I have only set up the focal topic for this theory, our feature presentation… King Sombra is Discord’s Creation Both Discord and King Sombra have always been characters shrouded in mystery. At first glance, these two characters don’t seem to have much in common. A wacky, talkative, incorrigible master of chaos and an enigmatic, stoic, calculating master of shadows. At least that’s how it was before The Beginning of the End, where Sombra’s new persona actually displayed traits reminiscent of Discord, being much more vain, voluble, and giddy. “Coincidentally”, this complete retcon of his old personality from the Season 3 premiere happens right after Discord brings him back… Returning to the topic of mystery, recall that in the entirety of the show’s run, we are never even given so much of a hint as to what Discord or Sombra’s origins are. This can be said about all the other villains too, but what sets these two apart from all the other villains is that they were the only two to engage with Celestia and Luna before they had the Elements of Harmony. And it was only because of these two that the Elements were ultimately destroyed. Though the connection is difficult to doubt, it is also difficult to tell the exact ordering of events between these four. Logically, one would assume that Celestia and Luna fought Sombra first, since they didn’t use the Elements on him in the flashback. But again, The Beginning of the End has brought a new question to the table. If Sombra was also interested in taking over all of Equestria, not just the Crystal Empire, why didn’t he do so before? What if he and Discord were both putting ponies under their reign of terror at the same time? After all, what else could have been stopping Sombra if he didn’t know of Celestia, Luna, and Discord’s strength? We have seen proof in the show that Discord is stronger than Sombra, in the sense that he can just click his fingers and be done with him, so it could be that Sombra just didn’t want to fight a losing battle...but how would he know that? And on the other side, what would be stopping Discord from taking Sombra out of the picture so that he could have the Crystal Empire to himself too? One would initially presume that all this can be easily answered by Discord not showing up in Equestria to wreak havoc until after Sombra was banished, but it can not. In order for the timeline to make sense, Discord needs a window of opportunity to know Sombra personally, or else he would not have a spell on hand that could bring him back. Besides what I already discussed, the unlikelihood of Discord just having the power to resurrect any pony he pleases, more evidence that his spell is only meant to revive Sombra specifically is the symbol on the ground that appears to be two of Sombra’s jagged crystals. Even more glaring evidence that I feel seals the deal is something I also already discussed in my previous theory, the center of the circle showing that there is something buried underneath. Most likely, what has been planted there is a seed. And who once tried to plant seeds underground as a way to destroy the Tree of Harmony? Discord. No pun intended, this is where everything comes full circle to the root...that seed is King Sombra. To expand even more on points I already made in my previous theory, I discussed then that both Sombra’s true nature and ultimate destiny were intertwined with the Tree of Harmony. Last time though, I did not discuss the possibility of him being born from a magical seed. I knew then that the Tree was also created from a magical seed, but I still chose to save the point for a later time, since then, we were still under the impression that it was Grogar, not Discord, who brought Sombra back. However, the reveal of it actually being Discord in the final episodes changes everything, as while we currently know nothing about Grogar, we know more than enough about Discord to see what could really be going on. After all, if Sombra knew that Grogar was actually Discord when he called him “the father of monsters”, that would make all too much sense... I’ve also gone over enough similarities between the Tree of Harmony and Sombra to make my point that the hint of a connection between them simply can’t just be attributed to coincidence. The more important matter now is Discord. We never learned where he got the Plunder Seeds he used against the Tree from. The most likely explanation is that he just created them with his magic, but what would that say for Sombra? Discord is shown using the power to bring inanimate objects to life throughout the show, granting them the ability to talk and move, but he has never been shown to have the power to give these inanimate objects a personality or anything that would lead to us believe they have an independent soul. In the end of The Break Up Break Down, he is shown gawking at Spike for acting as if a skeleton pony card he brought to life was anything more than a fictional character, describing her as “imaginary”. It is clear that this is not the way he could’ve given life to Sombra, however, that is not to say that Sombra was always a seed… Remember what I talked about in my last theory, how Sombra’s physical form and spirit form could be separate? And how in this theory, I’ve talked about Discord having the ability to call back creatures from the shadows? The easiest explanation we have right now for how Discord could have created Sombra is through contacting his spirit from the shadows and putting him inside a seed, creating him as a weapon to destroy the Tree. This explanation is not only the simplest, but also the most consistent, as it ties into the show canon’s description of Sombra being a former unicorn, what Jim Miller has said about Sombra being a ghost, and what I’ve said about him being a shadow in a body of crystal finding a way to truly return to life. One question this explanation would beg though is that if Sombra was created by Discord to destroy the Tree, why did he not destroy it then? Why was Discord forced to use Plunder Seeds instead? At first, it seems tricky, but the answer is actually in plain sight. Discord originally wanted to use Sombra because a living weapon would be more effective against the Tree than a nonliving weapon...but what if Sombra refused his commands? Since the Elements failed to defeat him, the case could be that he can’t be defeated by the Elements, but Discord certainly can. Not knowing that Celestia and Luna had the power in themselves to defeat him, he left Discord to get rid of the Tree himself. Since Discord’s plan also involved getting Celestia and Luna out of the way, it would make perfect sense with this line of reasoning for Sombra to disobey Discord and go off on his own. It seems that everything has finally come together in a niche...yet there is still one thing lacking. Hardcore evidence. Though it all fits logically, the appearance of a seed being planted in the middle of the circle used to call back Sombra is the most convincing piece of evidence to support the veracity of this theory. Not implying that it’s the only piece of evidence, and I feel that combined with all the evidence that points to Sombra having some kind of connection to the Tree of Harmony in addition to all the evidence that points to him having a connection to Discord, this theory stands on solid ground. However, I feel there is one stone we have yet to turn… In The Ending of the End, there are two very noteworthy parts that you wouldn’t think would demand further analysis, but are actually very telling. The first is the part where the Windigos return. What makes them worth discussing is not what happens with them in the actual episode, but the confirmation of their existence, which means more for this theory than you would think. If they were real all this time, you would think that the reason King Sombra never had to deal with them is because of the Crystal Heart...however, in both the alternate universe shown in The Cutie Re-mark and in his siege on Equestria in The Beginning of the End, he didn’t cause the Windigos to come back despite spreading his reign of fear and terror outside the Empire. It’s confirmed that the cause of the Windigos returning is animosity, hate among the ponies...yet Celestia described Sombra’s return in The Crystal Empire as hatred and fear taking hold. What banishes the Windigos is unity...which is ironically what Sombra does when he puts the ponies under his mind control. Though it’s through evil, he unites them and turns them into a formidable force. This leads right into the other noteworthy part, Twilight’s speech to the villains about how “there will always be darkness in the world, but there will always be those who find the light”. The discussion this part demands will not be as in-depth, as it is straight-up proof, confirmation from the show of what I talked about at the end of my last theory, the philosophy of Yin-Yang. This is the final part of my previous theory that gets called back to, where I spoke of Sombra being the dark counterpart of the Spirit of the Tree of Harmony, the Yang to its Yin. This final piece of evidence points to Sombra’s apparent connection to the Spirit of the Tree being part of the show’s biggest central theme by far...for the power of unity would be the same as the magic of friendship... Conclusion Though I do wish for this to be my final theory on the subject of King Sombra (after all, Part 3 is never as good), it is obviously out of my control if something else comes up to demand more analysis. I don’t wish to indefinitely create Sombra theories, but I also don’t want to close myself off from any more discussion of him that could be thought-provoking. I can’t deny that I do feel there are still more secrets surrounding this character that have yet to be explored, but that will be for another time. Until then, I would encourage you to do your own research and see what you can find before more evidence comes out in future pieces of MLP media. No matter what happens, long live the shadow king.
  4. So i rewatched Equestria Girls, because despite purist brony opinion, it was a good movie. In the movie princess celestia says sunset shimmer was a student before Twilight, BUT twilght became a student when she was very young. So i see two possibilities The first, is that sunset shimmer is much older than twilight is, because sunset shimmer would have to be older than twilight to make decisions on the quality and speed of her training, causing her to turn on Celestia. But Sunset Shimmer is a highschool senior, because pinkie pie said she was princess "3 years in a row", and twilight is at the very least a freshman, but likely older than that My second theory, is that sunset shimmer has a very high IQ and WAS able to make educated decisions on her training at only a few years older than twilight, or mabye even her exact age. But the problem with this is that Sunset's Plan was incredibly flawed, something that a very intelligent person probably wouldn't make So what do you guys think? How old Is Sunset Shimmer?
  5. Hi everypony Throughout the years, I've read several interesting posts such as "How fast was Rainbow Dash when she achieved Sonic Rainboom" or "Comparing scales in MLP universe to our universe". So I thought it would be interesting to do a project on studying how the Equestria solar system would look like. I started this project a year ago but now I finally wrote it in a readable fashion (by which I mean in a way that hopefully makes some sense ). I 'published' this paper here in picture form, but I also attached the original pdf file. Project_MLP.pdf. I hope you guys enjoy it and please do let me know if something I wrote doesn't seem to make sense or is not clear . Any form of feedback would be amazing and greatly appreciated . And let me know what are your thoughts on how the Equestria solar system should look like or any other thoughts you have on the role of Science in Equestria in general. (pictures can be enlarged upon clicking and zooming in in a new window ) (note: This is an updated version of a blog post on the same topic I did a year ago. Now that I looked back, there were a few (huge) mistakes there which I now corrected) Project_MLP.pdf
  6. Speculation on What Season 9 (The Last Season?) of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Will Be Like: Speculations based on leaked information! Spoilers ahead. Anyway, those are just my speculations on what could happen/occur come Season 9 (should it be the last season of FIM). But what do you think, do you agree with my speculations? What are yours? Let me and everyone else know. 😊 God Bless and Take Care. Speculation on What Season 9.docx
  7. In other words, could certain questions finally get answed , and certain theroies be put to rest. Well, with any kind of closuer on a franchise, the finale always seems to (at most times) open the doors to allow the writers to get a lot of stuff out of their system for themselves and for at most, the fans. But will the final season of MLP : FIM do that as well? Here I talk about what could be finally addressed, if that is the case. Now one of the first things that they (the writers) could finally address, is the whole Spike x Rarity situation. What I mean is, that if the writers choose to do so (IMO I believe they will), this will finally be addressed, and the outcome will be one that is a positive one, and yet be one that not a lot of the brony/pegasister community will agree on. And what the outcome will be, Spike and Rarity together. You may ask "How?" Well, it's quite simple, if you look at the fact, that they've been teasing this since Eps. 1, and throughout the show's run, they've had several episodes centered around Spike, that have also involved Rarity in some major/minor capacity, and with it being the final season of the show, like I mentioned at the beginning at the start, it opens the door for this to take place. And the reason being is, unless the series finale somehow ties into G5 and G5 becomes a soft Retcon/Reboot of FIM, then (IMO) this Spike x Rarity Deal will finally become a reality. 2. A Sugar Belle and Big Mac wedding will most likely happen. The reason being is the fact that this could be looked at as a 3 chapter deal, with the first happening in S7 , and So it only makes sense to tie this trifecta up with a 3rd and final chapter happening in the final season, which would culminate with a wedding between Sugar and BIg. Heck, for emotional sake, have the spirts of AJ, AppleBloom and Big Mac's parents appear to show their love and support, and thus have the kids and Sugar Belle seem as well. 3. Finally Addressing Celestria and Luna's orgins. Yes, before the show comes to a close, this has to be addressed, especially after giving them some moments to shine, first in the Premiere of S6 and most recently, not once but twice in S7, and This is something that finally needs to be addressed and I believe (IMO) that the writing staff of FIM will finally do so in the final season. Espiecally with the fact, that if you go back to the S6 Premiere, they both said, "That the birth of an Alicorn, is something Equestria has never seen", and that it was "Even beyond their understanding." Yeah, when they both said those things, that was enough of red flag, and more of a legit reasoning to wanna know about their orgins. 4. Starlight Glimmer becoming an Alicorn? Yes, indeed, this is most likely the direction they are heading, and if S9 is it for the show, definitely expect the writing staff to go this route. And, why?, you may ask. Because it seems that's what they building towards with her. (at least in my IMO), and would make sense that they writing staff make this a reality. 5. Sunset Shimmer Returns! , and the recent "Mirror Magic" EQG special, she has never returned to Equestria on the "Friendship is Magic" side of things. So with the final season, I truly believe and hope, (like many do) that this will be the season that it finally happens. And all honesty, I feel the writing staff knows that as well and will make it happen. 6. I believe that a G1 character has to be brought in, with a G4/FIM update, and that character should Majesty. And if you want a reason why, well if you watch MLP-Silver Quill's and ILOVEKPALOT's Video they did on Villains in MLP, than you pretty much get your answer there, as to why she should be brought in. Basically make her a character, that believes she's doing the right thing, but in fact is not. Or as Silver Quill put it, make her a rogue element that believes that all villainy, even those that have been redeemed, should be disposed of. Than the writers can build towards something between her and Twilight, and at same time, they could acknowledge a history between Celestria, Luna and Majesty as well, and that could really build the tension between her and Twilight. But that's what I (IMO) feel the writers will/would do in the final season, should it be more freelanced. What are your thoughts? God Bless!
  8. 400th post milestone for me. I believe that in the final season, Rarity will become not just our lovable fashion guru, but will become a brand. I could see her future bearing many new locations for her business. Perhaps a boutique in Absynnia, or Griffonstone, even Las Pegasus would be a great location. She could become a face of Equestria. Thoughts?
  9. Something that has always bugged me about MLP is how big of a visual gap there is between the ponies of the show. We've seen foals, "adult" ponies, and elderly ponies. But we've never seen any that appear to be inbetween foals and adults in terms of size and maturity. Let's start off with what we do know: Lauren Faust has stated that the Mane 6 are young adults with a maturity level anywhere between 12-18 years of age. Fluttershy stated that she is a year older than Pinkie Pie. In "Cutie Mark Chronicles", she visually appears to be more mature than every other filly in her class. Did she just grow faster than the others? This is the closest we've seen to a "teenage pony". It's hinted in "Pinkie Pride" that Rainbow Dash is 21 years old as her birthday cake has 21 candles. This is consistent with the lifestyle of the ponies in the show. The Mane 6 are all out of school, all have jobs or occupations of some sort that a normal adult would have, and all live in their own residence by their own means. They display the intelligence of someone who's at the very least a young adult If we are to follow the traditional time period in which people mature to the point of living independently, we can presume based off this that the Mane 6 are anywhere between 17-22 years of age in "human years". In Equestria Girls, when Twilight goes through the portal, she transforms into a being who appears to be either 17 or 18 years of age as she, along with the rest of the Mane 6, are portrayed as late high school students. As for the CMC and other similar ponies, they appear to be anywhere between the ages of 7-12. Equestrian schooling seems to finish at the basic level after the human equivalent of elementary school as no "middle" or "high school" equivalents are ever mentioned. This makes sense because in Equestrian society, ponies learn their special talents (cutie marks) around this age, making further schooling largely unnecessary. The equivalent of college seems to be present, albeit as an extension of their studies in whatever talent they possess. But where are the "teenage ponies", the ones inbetween foals and adult ponies? An argument could be made that the Mane 6 are actually around 14-16 years old, but this still doesn't explain why ponies between the ages of the Mane 6 and the CMC are never seen. A few theories/explanations/possibilities that may be the cause for this: Theory 1: Around the age of 12-15, ponies undergo a massive growth spurt, quickly going from appearing like foals to appearing like adults. The reason "teenage ponies" aren't seen is because they don't stay in such a visual state for long. This would also draw a parallel with how real horses grow - they mature rapidly from child to adult. Theory 2: Some of the ponies in the show are meant to be representative of teenage ponies, however the art style and constant usage of templates causes them to appear similarly sized as adults Theory 3: The writers/designers simply never wanted to design teenage ponies, and they leave the ponies ages up in the air on purpose ------- What are your thoughts on the matter?
  10. For many years, MLP has does us that "friendship is magic" (roll credits XD), but is it really? I have reason to believe that, ever since we've started watching Friendship is Magic, Celestia has been lying and manipulating everypony, and even us! "Celestia is a great princess and leader, and she'd never plan a conspiracy!" you may be typing right now. Well, I'm sorry to tell you, but Celestia hasn't been honest with anypony, and I'm gonna expose her! First, have you noticed that, whenever the Cutie Map summons a number of the Mane Six to an area, they try to make the inhabitants of said area to become friends with them, it would even forced on the inhabitants of the area, while disregarding their objections and their own ways of life and beliefs. If they turn down the friendship offer, the Mane Six treat them like they're wrong and the bad guy for refusing the offer, basically shaming them. However, if they accept the offer, it's always after the Mane Six solve a problem they've been dealing with for some time, and they appear to be more willing to do what the Mane Six ask of them. In case you didn't put the pieces together so far, basically, the friendship bond that the Mane Six try to make others apply makes them more submissive to authority, Celestia, in this case. Speaking of Celestia, when she tells the Mane Six what to do and where to go, if you pay close attention to it, it sounds like Celestia knows more about the area she's sending the Mane Six to than she's saying, even using the "but I don't know much about this area" card so she doesn't look suspicious. This part of the episode may seem like exposition and Celestia giving the Mane Six some info about the area they're going to and some warnings, but it seems more like instructions. When take this into consideration, it's quite possible that Celestia herself controls the Cutie Map. "Okay, but what's Celestia's 'agenda,' as you're claiming she has?" you're asking. Celestia's agenda is about expanding her kingdom by using the concept of friendship make other more submissive and obedient to her rule and authority. If you're friends with somepony, you'll lower your guard and be more open to them, and this, in turn, makes you more likely to do something if they ask you. Believe it or not, we have an example of Celestia's agenda being take into effect: The Crystal Empire. In The Crystal Empire, Part 1, Celestia explains the Crystal Empire to Twilight, but if you take a closer look at Celestia story, you can tell that it doesn't sound right and maybe even fabricated. She says that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people. But I ask you, what proof do we have of that, outside of Celestia's story? We don't. So, this was just a story Celestia told Twilight so she'll be biased, supportive, and obedient to Celestia's instructions. So, yeah, Celestia's story of King Sombra is just that, a story. Celestia said that her knowledge of the Crystal Empire "was very limited," but I don't think this is true. So, prior to Cadance 's and Shining's journey to the Crystal Empire, Celestia gave Cadance a memory-wiping spell and a false memory spell to use on the Crystal Ponies. The memory-wiping spell was used so the Crystal Ponies would forget the good things King Sombra has done for them, and the false memory spell was used to implant the false memory that King Sombra was an evil king that enslaved his people into the Crystal Ponies' minds. When a Crystal Pony asked Twilight, "Were we really gone 1000 years?" she then appears to be in pain after she asked and we see some creepy eyes show up as a mental image, which appear to be Sombra's, and this was a failsafe of the spells that were put on the Crystal Ponies and activates whenever they question what they've been told about their past. This was the spells' way of saying, "Do not question what you've been told!" And those eyes may actually be Celestia's because we've seen her eyes like this before, when she was giving Twilight instructions prior to arriving at the Crystal Empire. Also, the Sombra we see in episodes The Crystal Empire, Parts 1 & 2 may actually have been an illusion that Celestia (or Cadence) made to make it look like her fictitious story was true. This way, the Crystal Ponies will be more willing and likely to accept Cadence and Shining as they're new rulers because it was staged to look like they were being rescued. And it's possible that the original King Sombra (who was a good king and supportive of his people) was murdered when Cadance and Shining arrived at the Crystal Empire, and the "gone for 1000 years" bit may have been a part of the false memory spell. But after all is said and done, it's not really Shining and Cadence that's ruling the Crystal Empire, it's actually Celestia.With Cadence in charge, Celestia can rule the Crystal Empire through Cadence by giving her instructions under the table and behind closed doors.The Mane Six are completely unaware that Celestia is using friendship to brainwash others.By only showing the Mane Six the positives of friendship, Celestia can manipulate them to do her bidding with getting her hooves dirty.And Celestia may really a queen and uses the "princess" title to make her seem more harmless so nopony would suspect her of any conspiracy. I wouldn't put it past her of unleashing or creating some of the enemies the Mane Six come across to distract them so they wouldn't think to look at Celestia as the source of these problems. This way, Celestia won't get caught and her agenda can be fulfilled without being noticed. So, what do you think of this theory? Is Celestia really a king princess of Equestria, or is that merely a façade to mask her agenda?
  11. the reformation of the changelings is done and i doubt it will be revoked, but many people liked the old changelings and miss them. so i was wondering, could there be other Changeling Hives? with another queen and totally seperate from Chrysalis' . i think this would be a nice way to have both forms
  12. You remember the Mare in the Moon story we're told at the very start of the show? Well, I have a theory that will expose it as a lie... What were we told from the story? Celestia and Luna were 2 sisters that raised and lowered the Sun and Moon, but Luna became jealous because she wasn't getting any attention and decided to not lower the Moon one night. After that, she became Nightmare Moon, and Celestia reluctantly used the Elements of Harmony to banish Nightmare Moon on the Moon for 1000 years, and the show starts one the 1000th year. I don't think this is actually true. No, I believe Celestia told everypony this story...in reverse. If you pay attention to Celestia's behavior and mentality while interacting with Luna throughout the series, she seems to have a know-it-all and "I come first" attitude. It implies that Celestia pushes Luna aside while she gets the spotlight. If you take this and apply it with my theory that Celestia is using the concept of friendship to brainwash and indoctrinate everypony to expand her kingdom, then you can see that Celestia is pretty arrogant, manipulative, and controlling. So, when you look at the Mare in the Moon story from Luna's point of view, all she wanted was some of the attention and some credit, but the ponies did their thing during the day while sleeping during the night. It's clear that Luna felt left out and unappreciated. Remember when the story said that Luna wanted the night to last forever and turned evil when she refused to listen to Celestia? The story is making Luna look like a spoiled brat for not getting her way. Doesn't it seem like the story is trying to make Luna look like the bad guy while glorifying Celetsia at the same time? I think Celestia herself wrote the Mare in the Moon story, and she did it in a way that will make her look good and Luna bad. This gives off the impression to the story's readers that Celestia is the superior princess and the one you need to trust, and this, in turn, will make everypony discredit and disregard Luna. I could leave this here, but I think there's more to this. What if the Luna we've seen isn't the real Luna? What if...the original Luna was murdered by Celestia? "Oh, buck off, there's no way that Celestia would do something like this! " you Celestia fans out there, but just hear me out, here. When Luna refused to lower the Moon, the story claimed she was being a brat, but she was trying to stand up for herself from Celestia's mental abuse towards her. After Luna transformed herself into Nightmare Moon, Celestia realized that she wasn't gonna stay submissive and obedient to her authority anymore, so she decided to murder Luna to make sure her authority and rule wouldn't be challenged or overthrown. After the murder, Celestia told everypony that Luna went rogue, but this was a story she used to gain the trust and support from her subjects. So, Celestia basically covered up Luna's murder in order to protect her reputation and to keep her power. Celestia knew that somepony could eventually figure out the conspiracy, so she decided to make a clone of Luna as a fail-safe so she wouldn't be found out. When the events of the first 2 episodes took place, it was time for Celestia to fake Nightmare Moon's return. Remember when Celestia seem to disappear and Nightmare Moon appeared? I believe that the Nightmare Moon we see in those first 2 episodes was really Celestia in disguise. This explains why Celestia was missing without any trace or explanation. When Nightmare Moon was defeated, Celestia put the Luna clone in her place, and she reappeared, making it look like she was released from where Nightmare Moon supposedly banished her to. The idea that Nightmare Moon was Celestia in disguise makes sense because, after Nightmare Moon was defeated, she appeared out of nowhere. Again, we're giving NO explanation for how Celestia supposedly disappeared by Nightmare Moon and where she was. It makes all of this seem to be a set up. And did you ever notice how easily Nightmare Moon was defeated? I mean, she didn't even put up a fight. And all the damage she made was easily reversible. Now, where does the "told on reverse" bit come in? Celestia didn't want competition from her sister when it came to ruling Equestria. Luna was the one who was trying to reason with Celestia about sharing the rule 50-50, but Celestia wasn't about to give any of it up. This is what the "Luna refused to lower the Moon to make room for the day" bit was really; it was a metaphor of one not sharing the power with the co-ruler and keeping it to themselves. The Mare in the Moon story shifted this aspect onto Luna, to make her look like the corrupted one. The Luna clone (the Luna we see in the show) was given the false memory that was the Mare in the Moon story by Celestia to make sure that the lie wouldn't be exposed, and her agenda would continue to be fulfilled without interruption... What do you think of this theory?
  13. I've been wondering this for a while. What you think it's the real name of the pegasus better know as Daring Do? I believe it's A.K Yearling, as that's the name she used when she studied literature and her public persona, and Daring Do is her alias. It would make little sense if she uses her real name when dealing with dangerous douches around. Then again, I haven't read the books (yet), so I might be mistaken
  14. Let me just say i am trying to make this as Safe For Work as possible as to not break any rules. Ok, so first of all let me just say please no "it would never happen given the theme" please none of that. do not break 4th wall in an equestrian point of view. second of all this is just mainly to hear opinions.. ---- Ok, so Equestrian Anatomy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Pony Breeding has been confirmed on how it works in Equestria but you can clearly not see any ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)parts. I always thought that when ponies were both in the mood the female could just make their ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)parts appear, i cant think of many other explanations(remember not to break rule1). another thing i was wondering was how and why the famous Rainbow Dash getting Fluttershy out of bed played out? and why fluttershy felt the need to hide under her blankets and be embarrassed when RD ripped off the covers. Now nothing was shown but this ties into my theory from above. i was mainly wanting to know you'r thought on the topics, not just responses to my theory. Yes i am seeking genuine answers.
  15. I became a brony around when the first Equestria Girls movie came out in mid 2013. And when I first watched it, I noticed that its plot and execution is almost identical to the first 2 episodes of Friendship is Magic, Friendship is Magic, Part 1 and Friendship is Magic, Part 2. Here's my theory: the Equestria Girls universe is the real Friendship is Magic universe, while the Friendship is Magic show we all know and love is what Twilight is writing in her diary every day. The show is probably how Twilight is presenting her experiences, adding various concepts to make the diary entries more interesting. These are the things that both the movie and the first 2 episodes of the show had in common: ▶ Twilight enters a new environment that's outside of her comfort zone ▶ Twilight has to make new friends that ▶ Twilight has a hard time fitting in at first ▶ Twilight has to get the McGuffin. However, the antagonist for both are different: Nightmare Moon for the show, Sunset Shimmer for the movie. Again, the show is being told from Twilight point of view, so a few things in the show and movies won't be identical. If this is theory, then Twilight would've been transferred to Canterlot High School from her previous school when she moved. Being in a new school, she's nervous and being in a new and unfamiliar environment. When talking with Celestia as an attempt to learn more about the school so she won't feel so alien. And when Celestia mentioned the a crown for the school dance, Twilight saw this as an opportunity to gain respect and acknowledgement. Sunset, being the most popular girl in the school (portrayed as the school bully in the diary entries) didn't want to be replaced, so she thought of how to get rid of any competition. But after a few days, Twilight was still feeling like she didn't belong or if anypony cared, but Celestia suggested that she go make some friends, but Twilight was a bit nervous to introduced herself, but she remembered that, if she befriended the right individuals, she'd had an easier time in getting the crown and becoming the princess of the school dance. Sunset wasn't having any of that and tried to make Twilight look bad so she wouldn't be allowed to apply for school dance princess, but Twilight's friends managed to clear her name. So, what do you think of this theory? I know it sounds like the "it's all in their head" cliché, but this theory is supposed to explain that the Equestria Girls movies is the real MLP universe, and the show is what Twilight is writing in her diary but soon makes the diary into a book of stories to entertain herself The rest of the Mane Six also enjoyed reading these stories, and Twilight let them write their own contributing stories, which translates as each of the Mane Six having their own episode in the series. Several concepts and characters from the show were either based on something/somepony or made up entirely for the stories that were being written.
  16. Discord is is, hooves-down, the most comical and chaotic character in the G4 MLP universe. He sadly doesn't appear all that much in the series, but he's entertaining when he does. But what is Discord, really? In The Return of Harmony, Part 1, Cheerilee states that Discord is a draconequus, but I don't think that's his true species at all. I propose to you that Discord is actually not a draconequus, but a chimera. Now, I know we've seen an actual chimera in the show, but the term "chimera" is also used for an animal that has parts of various species, and this fits Discord much better. The beast from Beauty and the Beast, for example, is also a chimera, as he has various parts from various species. For those who don't know, the word "draconequus" is a portmanteau of the Latin words "draco" (dragon) and "equus" (horse), but Discord doesn't seem to have dragon-like attributes. The MLP Wiki even states that Discord is a chimera. [LINK] So, what do you think of this brief theory? Is Discord a chimera, or do you have a different explanation for Discord's species?
  17. That's a question that's been bothering me for a while now. As I have plans to make my own persona of one, there is very little to go on what a draconequus actually is. From what we've seen of Discord he is clearly one of, if not THE most powerful being on Equestria. But I get the feeling we can't entirely trust completely in what Discord says, as he does seem the sort to grant himself titles of godhood or reinvent his backstory frequently to suit his whims in a very Joker-esque fashion. Have heard rumors that one of the semi-cannon books mention something about a whole race Discord once belonged to. But I find that somewhat dubious as this world is already taxed just trying to contain just one Discord. My own headcannon is that draconequui are some sort of inorganic, inter-dimensional travelers not unlike the Planeswalkers of Magic the Gathering or the Q continuum that Discord was originally based on. Just that different dimensions have different rules of what counts as existence so a Draconequus has to keep replacing their body as they age eventually becoming a being of pure thought inhabiting a self-made chimera. Look forward to your turns of logic! -WDRSHNS
  18. What if... What just if, he was actually a lizard. and the dragon thing is just a cover-up. I mean, what is a dragon doing in a world filled with horses. A lizard makes 999% more sense. Also, he is purple, and has spikes on him. Who also have that? Lizards change color when in an environment that they don't like. And why should lizard like to be with horses. My final evidence is that dragons eat meat. What are made of meat???===?? HORSES, PONYS AND OTHER HORSE LIKE CREATURES (Like that zebra pony that was actually quite hot). so this means Spike is a Charmander. Id also like to thank this community and Nightmare Terror for helping me come out with the courage to write this, I read his posts and this gave me heart
  19. At 1:01 while Celestia talks about "magical items created for evil" they show several things we've seen throughout the show, and would expect to see...except for two of those things. One the bones of the Arimaspi (big goat thingy that attacked the griffons, and stole their treasure), and the other was Daybreaker's crown-helmet thingy! Soooo yea - mind kinda blown here, cause this implies one, that the Arimaspi may ether have been an artifact used by someone to attack the griffons for said treasure or at least it's bones could be (or have already been) made into an evil artifact and two, that Daybreaker's crownhelm is such an artifact which could mean either she may be in the show for real or she was already real at one point! I know this is just speculation but, what do you guys think? Video linked below, remember: pause at 1:01!
  20. So I have been watching these https://youtu.be/1EoPK9gdIFo https://youtu.be/3qGIyri4Ynw https://youtu.be/fACzoXV2fWk And I realized that he is entirely correct. Before I get into this, please no "it's just a kids show" in the comments. So sure, Equestria is said to be a place about Friendship and happiness, but it' not. First of all let' talk about the Rulers, some would Argue that the Tree of Harmony is the true ruler and creates Alicorns as tools to fight evil, but let' focus on the more important "Rulers" I'm talking about Celestia and Luna (more Celestia than luna). So Celestia is not exactly evil, but is definitely not far from it. To start off, have you ever noticed how all of the pony inhabited places are lovely and song really have any problems( more on that later). Well let' not forget about the rest of Equestria, the parts that are in poverty, if Celestia was truly nice than she would help the other Races, such as the Griffins. Ever notice how the Griffins live in Poverty, and some could say that all of that has been fixed, but I doubt that that small place that we saw was all of the Griffins society, so why does Celestia not help them? Well song say that they song have the Recourses because Unicorns pretty much rule the world(more on that later as well) and have an endless supply of materials via magic. I think that Celestia only helps her people as we have sort of heard her alute to. That also might be why Sombre was straight up destroyed, no second chances or anything, as we have seen, they have almost no mercy on anything that could pose a threat. It's obvious that discord doesn't count, because I'm pretty sure that destroying a being that can literally do anything they want wouldn't be the best move on the Political side of things. So now to talk more about the enemies. Celestia had no leniency on Luna/Nightmare Moon because her power would be questioned, and and Luna/Nightmare Moon really posed a threat. Celestia probably could have just banished her to the moon for a quarter of the time because feelings usually dont take 1000 years to Air out( I guess?) And Nightmare Moon came to be because of feelings that built up. Now before I get any deeper in I just wanna say that if you think about it than nothing is really evil, only different points of view and objectives that some disagree with. But also about pretty much above this point I said about Celestia isn't entirely her fault. I mean, you make something one of the most powerful known beings, and however good they are, they can't always think about everyone. Being powerful is hard and most powerful things become corrupt because their scared that something might take them out of power. The way I look at it is pretty much you being born into something that your, for the most part good at, and also have the power to keep people from taking that ONE thing that your good at away. So of course things become corrupt to power.Celestia is not perfect. But i think she does her best and i dont really think that anypony can do better than her. Now my view on Celestia might seem really Passive aggressive, and sorry for my bad Sentence structure, but bare with me. ( I just had to delete half of this topic because it countered all my points) another it seems that no matter how I word it this topic keeps looping back around and I end up supporting the other end so that's what I'm gonna do( pretty much making this topic useless). But another point I want to mention is that if Equestria is such a nice place, than why is their a caste system. Sure you could say that every society has some sort of caste system, but it' different when literally 1/3 of a regions population can literally do anything they want. Yes I'm talking about the unicorns, they are pretty much on top as most people can see. But I guess that this sis not our world. And what may seem so bad to us is natural there, and probably shouldnt be interfered with. Sort of off topic, but as an example I'm gonna say, what about the holocaust. Sure it was a bad thing(in most people's eyes) but i think thats whats done is done. And under no circumstances should you alter the past, or interfere with things you dont understand. Like if you were to somehow put an end to Equestrias Caste system, them What? And if you went back in time to kill Hitler, then for all you know the world wouldn't be here. Back on topic again. To wrap this pointless jumble of words up I think that Equestria is the norm for Equestria and our world is the Norm for our World. If Equestria looked at our planet how we look at theirs than they would probably think that a ot of things are worse here. But that' just how things work. And I do believe that Equestria IS a better place than earth. But I bet if we put together a Montage of all the good things that happen on earth(excluding the bad) something else might think that this place is better. But countering my point again, I do think Equestria is a much better place. And I would live there in a heartbeat. let me know what you thought about this. Please no mean comments( if there are any anyways) and again, please no "it' just a show" And if you could or could try to, how would you change Equestria for the better. Also again, would you go there if given the choice.
  21. Well, I know this may be a bit of a reach but i recently re-watched a royal problem, and stuff I didn't notice before because of the shock of Day Breaker, I started to notice. Did Day Breaker exist in the real world before? Now, one thing that i noticed while watching MLP in general is that Celestia is seen as... (scary i guess)... when she has seemed very lenient in the episodes we have seen. Another thing is that Celestia seems to enjoy chaos... (Treehugger almost got banished to another universe and she thought nothing of it. Actually, she seemed to enjoy it). That is a bit of a dark sense of humor. However, the biggest reason i made this topic is because... Day-breaker didn't seem like an unknown entity to either of the sisters. Luna knew who she was the second she laid eyes on her and Celestia mentioned that she will never exist again. She could have been talking about nightmare moon but... i don't think so. I actually thought about Daybreaker motivations and remembered the future of the worst world completely desolated... like it's been burned of all life. Could Day Breaker be a reality in this scenario? Could Celestia become the most evil Villian in MLP when push comes to shove?
  22. Hello everypony, I just finished watching the Season 6 Premier, which was great by the way, and a new alicorn was introduced. Now, this alicorn is the baby of Cadence and Shining Armor, and I was wondering why the baby is an alicorn if Shining Armor is only a unicorn and cadence isn't naturally an alicorn. Granted in the show, even Luna and Celestia had no clue as to why the baby was an alicorn, but does anypony have any predictions and/or theories about this that they would like to share? To follow up on this, until the end of Season 5, only princesses could be alicorn as far as anypony knew, so does this suggest that baby Flurry Heart is a princess, and if so, would Cadence be considered a queen? Hopefully in future episodes, we may find out the answers to these questions, but as of this moment, I'm very deep in thought and am curious as to what you all have to say about this. Please... fuel my ideas! Thank you kindly, Thundershock
  23. In My little Pony: Friendship is Magic there is a character of particular interest to me. Discord. The spirit of chaos, master of random, former ruler of Equestria and... apparently Tirek’s dumb puppet. It seems to me that the series likes to say that Discord has immense magical ability but chooses not to use it. The purpose of my query is this: exactly how powerful is Discord? Is he powerful but lazy or something else? I have always loved Discord; it takes real guts to steal the Elements of Harmony from Canterlot Castle. It seems that Discord’s power is awesome and fantastical but at the same time horribly ignored. In his introductory episode he is not only of stealing the Elements of Harmony from the most defended place in Equestria but also can remove pegasus wings and unicorn horns with minimal effort, a literal snap of his fingers. Instead of immediately wiping out his enemies, however, he chooses to toy with them and make them try to get the Elements back. While they wander through the Canterlot garden labyrinth he chooses to taunt them further and we see that he can taint the hearts and minds of ponies with a touch of his finger. Eventually the Mane 6 power through and get the Elements back and revert him to his stone prison. But why did he just stand there and let himself be turned to stone? He knew what those relics were capable of and chose to sit on his throne while an obviously dooming rainbow arched above and headed straight for him. Outside of his introductory episodes we see he is able to bend and break the very laws of physics, also with minimal effort. He makes houses spin like merry-go-rounds, can duplicate himself and much more. Yet when Tirek confronts him he uses his fantastic magical power and the obvious clues that his “friend” dropped before he made his move and... let’s his magic be drained from him. If my theory holds true then Discord should have been able to draw strength from the chaos around him because we know he can and confront him again but he doesn’t. He is in a helpless state for the rest of the episode. In the circumstance that Fluttershy is threatened, I have no doubt that the crust of the Earth would roll and quake and the heavens would summon clouds to hide from his rage. But we never see Discord in a combat scenario so I’m reduced to scouring the internet for an answer. If anyone can give me clarification or criticism I’m all ears but please tell me if Discord is just powerful and aloof or something! Sincerely, The Pinball King
