Will Twilight ever become a ruler?

Recommended Posts

Before you answer this topic I would recommend you read my earlier topic "Twilight sparkle ruler or guardian?", Link is below.

So if you read the topic you'll notice that some people suggested that it might change in season 5 but I'm not sure about that. I mean they made such a big deal out of it in season 3 but during most of season 4 they barely talked about, if they had plans to do something big with this then surely they would at least have hinted at it. And not to mention they made it quite clear at the end of season 4 that Twilight was just supposed to spread friendship across Equestria, in other words bring peace to the land, or as far as I'm concerned it means she's a protector not a ruler. So I ask you, do you think I'm right and that there was no point in the Princess thing in the first place, or do you believe she will have new responsibilities in season 5?

If she doesn't become a ruler, then she must have picked the shortest straw. I mean, I would be freaking angry if I would save Equestria multiple times (while the true rulers are incompitant fools who cannot run a country without the damn elements protecting them) and when there is expected for me to continue to do so, and not get any saying in how Equestria should be ruled.

 

I would take the throne myself if I was Twilight

Hmm... This is pretty tough question...

...yea I think she will.

 

This made my day on SO MANY LEVELS I can't even explain it.

 

Anyway, after reading what you wrote, I think she will be a Guardian, although I do can see she as a ruler, her role so far has been the one of a Guardian... but anyway, she's a freaking princess with a castle, she can do whatever she wants now, even adopt secretly adopt a filly she found in the middle of the everfree-forest and raise her as her own daughter

She already is, according to MLP Wiki. She's the ruler of Rainbow Friendship Kingdom.

as the army of the Twilight marches across the land, purging all who resist. The sunset shall last forever.

 

 

But isn't she kinda one already? With her having a castle, and a title of Princess? And she was originally meant to replace Celestia has her end to her personal character arc, so I would hazard a guess as to the positive.

Hm.. It's pretty unlikely I think. Even by the end of season 4 she still hadn't grasped all of the duties and such of being an alicorn princess so I doubt it will actually happen anytime soon. Plus, if she did become a ruler I don't think there would really be all too many adventures. Honestly I didn't expect Twilight to become a princess at all, I thought she'd become a modern Starswirl the Bearded or some kind of powerful sorcerer.

The coronation was obvious from day 1, and Twilight being the first mortal leader, with a student of her own one day, is the next obvious step. Celestia and Luna will bounce, leaving the kingdom in the hooves of the printests of love and friendship.

She already is a ruler....of what though has yet to be discovered ;)

 

-she can't be the ruler of friendship because she is not friends with everypony on the earth, plus you cannot rule over something that is as subjective and individualized as friendship

Apparently, it has happened officially at the end of season 4. Her kingdom represents her ponies so she is a ruler through that power and no other action is necessary.

My point exactly she's not a ruler otherwise she would be making big decisions over how the kingdom is run(like the other princesses), so no as far as I'm concerned she is a guardian.

The canon disagrees with you. She was even briefly the ruler of all of Equestria as the guards recognize her as part of the system, third in line to rule in the absence of Celestia and Luna. Her castle, throne and kingdom are just more permanent symbols of her being a ruler. In season 5, there will be more screen time devoted to her as a princess.

That's debatable since she's not really getting the grips of a ruler and she really liked being normal pony as well despite her being an alicorn and a princess but if you look at her when her Rainbow Castle was revealed at the end of season 4, she might already be a ruler but she would probably be more suited as a guardian since she and her friends tend to get Equestria out of their greatest jams and pinches when the world goes into great disarray.
