Most cringe worthy moments in the show?

Recommended Posts

As with most media, MLP has had some cringe-worthy moments sprinkled through out the show. These embarrassing, awkward moments can make us cringe on the characters' behalf, yet also make us laugh at the same time. What do you think are the most cringe inducing moments in the show?

 

Currently, most memorable to me is the scene from Season 4's 24th episode, Equestria Games:

 

 

When Spike thrust himself forward at the award's ceremony, planning to sing the Ponyville Anthem, only to learn he was due to sing the Cloudsdale Anthem, which he did not even know the words of. Instead of backing down, he simply sang a horrible song of lyrics he made up on the spot, most of them consisting of announcing how awkward the situation was, in a half-hearted singing voice.

 

I laughed and cringed at the same time.

You already explained it with your Spoiler text.

 

I didn't think that they would go full length on this, but i actually think they wanted this to make as cringeworthy as possible. I needed to stop the vid 2 times when i watched it the first time, because it was so hard to watch.

Any moment with that obnoxious "DUN DUN DUN" noise, it just comes off as cringey and embarrassing.

Every time they start singing... *runs away*

This. I have to look away every time that they sing.

 

With an exception to This Day Aria and Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.

 

Why? Cause when the villains sing,they sing about being evil and their plans. But,when the mane 6 sing,it's usually about cringeworthy topics.

The Japanese and Italian intros are much better.

- Spike singing in the Equestria Games.

 

- Anytime a character sings: Sorry, I'm not a fan of the songs in the show. It makes me want to fast forward.

the scene when Mr. Cake changes a diaper in "baby cakes"

 

I don't know... do Gross cringes count, or are we talking about cringes of embarrassment?

When the cmc sing in show stoppers and for me, the entire rainbow falls episode. If you liked that episode, I respect your opinion, but for me, it was the worst episode in the series.

-When they sing songs, because pronto I can't stand they're singing voices and secundo they play genres that I don't really care for

-When Rainbow Dash started faking in Rainbow Falls, because it seemed really forced but cringy as a matter of fact

-Obviously spike singing the Cloudsdale's National anthem and failing at it (LIKE A BOSS!)

  • Whenever someone says "everypony" or "somepony".
  • The "naysayers" line.
  • Pinkie's musical numbers in Season 1
  • "They're eating the words!"
  • The out-of-place educational moment in Winter Wrap-Up
  • Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon

  • "Rainbow Dash? Rainbow Crash is more like it!"
  • The "Who" joke with Owlicious.
  • "Stop it Discord! You aren't playing fair!" (To be fair, at least it was followed up by "Perhaps we haven't met.")
  • The Rainbow Dash fan club.
  • Baby Cakes
  • The part where they ran away from the dragons in Dragon Quest, proving them right.
  • "Sunshine! Sunshine!"
  • Chrysalis' defeat.
  • Spike's dragon code that he feels obligated to follow even though he made it up (unless I missed something).
  • "Where does it hurt?" *Rainbow dash points to her chest* "In here."
  • Pinkie's rap.

That's all I can remember. There may be more from the episodes I haven't seen in a while.

As a Cranky Doodle fan and as a viewer in general in found this scene particularly cringe worthy, (though Pinkie's actions in whole for A Friend in Deed were themselves quite cringe worthy):

 

 

What the hell Pinkie? Even Cranky gets knows that there's something seriously off about a young mare hitting on someone his age.

And I respect yours equally. I'm just throwing my hat into the ring in this case.

For me it's anytime there is a scene where a character or group embarass themselves in front of a larger group. The episode "Twilight Time" was full of them, and remains my least favorite episode of the series because of it.

 

I can't stand awkward scenes like that. >_<
