Things you find weird about the Equestria Girls Universe

Recommended Posts

"What are some of the things you think are weird about the Equestria Girls universe?"

 

Here are a few things that I think are weird:

 

  1. All of the locations have MLP related names.
  2. All of the humans are unusual pastel colors.
  3. The students rarely go to class.  
  4. Magical events are just accepted as normal.

1. We are yet to see a human Sunset Shimmer.

2. None of the antagonists have really received any punishment.

3. They are able to grow wings

But not horns for some reason! :blink: Maybe because it would look much more disturbing than growing wings.

Ponies become humans when they go through the portal, but horses still exist in the EqG universe.

All (or most) of the ponies seem to have human equivalents, but their ages can differ significantly from their pony versions. The Mane 6 and the CMCs at least appear to be closer in age to each other, and human Celestia and Luna are probably a lot younger than the ponies.

Everyone else has already stated the weird stuff to me. There's nothing I can add except this. The weird stuff is what makes the Equestria Girls World interesting to know more about even if most of the world building has been better addressed in fan fiction than in official works.

  • Pony names instead of human ones. 
  • Ponies, griffons and diamond dogs have human counterparts. Dragons have dog counterparts? 
  • No human Starlight (yet). 
  • How an entire nation in one dimension is only just a city in another. Or how it's gods are actually school faculty. 
  • No mention of any otuside cities or nations.

Are all of the parents in "Pedestria" crazy or something?! :blink:

You do not name a *human* child "Shining Armor". ^_^

That Applejack and Rarity get along better as high school students than they do as fully grown adults with their own careers.

Speaking of that, Rarity (A high school student.) owning her own successful business. :confused:

Unless... what if what we're hearing aren't their real names, but how Twilight hears that worlds language and interprets their names as? For all we know, Stephen Amel could translate to Shining Armor in her head. 

Oh, just thought of another weird thing: how every person in Canterlot High (minus Sci-Twi) acts just like their Equestrian counterpart, despite vastly different life experiences.

Why don't the human versions of Big Mac and Shining Armor share the same builds as their pony counterparts but Bulk Biceps does?

There are some pretty entrepreneurial students out there, though.

I think i read that they didn't make Big Mac red because they wanted to avoid racist accusations from Native Americans.

Yeah. Instead they just laugh things off like everyone else around them are crazy. :confused:

The weird thing where are fire department

The fact that Sunset Shimmer is somehow able to make an honest living (with a part time job, decently sized apartment, and everything) despite having no family and limited knowledge on human society.

And yeah, the age difference can get pretty dang confusing. What exactly determines when a human counterpart is born as opposed to the pony one, or even if they're born at all? Keep in mind, there's a bunch of human characters we've never seen as ponies, and vice versa.

But honestly, I think a lot of these odd quirks about an otherwise grounded society are part of what makes the EqG universe strangely intriguing to me. It's still recognizable as something to come out of MLP, but there's more than enough heavy contrasts to really get a sense on just how different their lives play out as humans.

Oh! There are Daring Do movies in the Equestria Girls universe & AK Yearling, may or may not just write fictional wish fulfillment stories. :mlp_smug:

Never finished any of the movies form EQG, but from what I saw, I can say the weirdest thing has to be the skin colors. Aside from the obvious unusual colors, why do some characters have normal skin colors? Where is the consistency?
