Why Equestria Girls makes no sense.

Recommended Posts

So first of all we know that Pony Celestia is many many lifetimes old and Human Celestia is most likely not thousands of years old. This can be applied to quite a few things, but that means asks the question. When was the human world actually created? I am pretty sure it has been there as the alternate universe since well, forever. So that would mean that human Celestia would have to be very very old and the problem with that is although there is small amount of magic in that world nothing mentions immortal humans. This would mean that the Human world was created not too long ago, and then why was it created when it was. If the human world was created from the start than human Celestia would have died long before we see whst is taking place in EGG. I also have another topic here 

 

Discussing another thing that makes no sense.

What are your thoughts?

Can you explain?

Maybe people get much older there. Remember it are no humans there. Just like Lotr people can become older.

We dont know anything for sure.

But maybe Human Celestia is the multi-millenia year old principle.

Also, I do think there's a lack of government in their world as if magic like that was happening a cold shoulder would be the last thing the government would do.

But hey, that's just our human world.

It's a world where the humans are just as technicolored as the ponies. It was never intended to follow real-life rules and instead have a bit more freedom with how the world works compared to our reality.

My advice: Just allow it to follow its own strange rules and let the fans of this spinoff enjoy what they love about it.

The show is intended for little girls, they won't think that far.

The people that live around the school are either ignorant to what’s going on there or they don’t care. Seeing a large rainbow unicorn in the sky must be nothing new to them.

Maybe time flows faster in Equestria than the human world.

There are many things you have to get past in order to enjoy Equestria Girls. I like seeing these characters in a different setting, so to me it's worth it.

Agree and I enjoy equestria girls a little more since Forgotten Friendship first aired.

Holy crap, dude.  I never thought about the time differential with respect to the Sisters!  We know there's a time differential of approximately ten years between the worlds.  The ponies are about ten years older than their human counterparts.  (This makes for an especially bizarre realization that Sunset is actually a 30 year old woman essentially pretending to be a high school student.)  But I never thought about the Sisters!  Damn, dude.  That's a mindf*ck.  Why would everyone else be separated by ten years, but the Sisters are....let's see, I did the math awhile back....I think the Sisters are about 1130 years old, but their human counterparts are presumably just normal-aged, adult humans.  This is either evidence of some kind of inexplicable cosmic distortion/tear in the space-time continuum, or evidence that Hasbro doesn't really think these things through and just wanted to sell dolls.  :laugh:

As for the other point in the OP, all evidence suggests that there are human counterparts for every single pony.  Actually, there are presumably counterparts for every single conscious being, period.  (Spike, for example.)  This indeed means that they could theoretically run into a pony Wallflower or Gloriosa or whoever else.  But I doubt we'll see counterparts of these one-time characters.  Maybe they'll be background easter eggs at some point.  That'd be cool.  Here's a mindblower for you: somewhere in the human world is an Ember dog!  I also wonder a lot about what happens to other species if they go through the mirror.  Like, what happens if yaks, changelings, hippogriffs, or griffons go through the mirror?  The other day, I thought I had come up with the greatest mindblower of all: what would happen if DISCORD went through the mirror?!  But then I realized that it's not a mystery, and we already know the answer:

Spoiler

And before you contemplate about this, I highly doubt that Discord has a counterpart in the human world, because he's not from the pony world; he's from the Continuum.

A few points . . .

1) I'm not actually convinced the ponies are that much older than their human counterparts they just take on their responsibilities earlier than humans because they're guided by their cutie mark destinies. For instance Twilight is literally still at school when the show starts and in one episode Dash wins the "Young" flyer competition. Plus consider the huge amount of development they've gone through Twilight becoming a princess, Dash becoming a wonderbolt reserve then a full fledged member, Rarity opening boutiques in both Canterlot then Manehattan. Even the cutie mark crusaders are being consulted by adults about their childrens cutie marks and they're not even out of school yet. To me they're at best in their early twenties by this point and at worst could well be in their late teens 18/19. Still that's a topic for another thread and one I'd love to debate in.

2) With regard to Sunset remember she was at school when she first went through the portal and then spent her time in the Equestria Girls universe so unless both universes have time passing at the same rate she can't be much older than her apparent age since she's only been back to Equestria to steal the crown.

3) It gets even more fun with the comics and the other realities we see in them like the Dinosaur world. Its a big bowl of wibbley, wobbley, timey wimey with the pony Celestia being over 1,000 years old, the human being in her 30's (or also over 1,000 years old hence her casual approach to magic) and the dinosaur one being dead several million years ago.

Human Celestia is a vampire, that's my head cannon for the show. However in the show they never bothered to explain it. The most likely truth is that they just wanted to cram majority of equestrians into school, whether it makes sense or doesn't.

I highly doubt that the human versions are 10 years older. They are clearly in high school and there is no proof that they are 10 years older either

Other way round I think they meant the my little pony versions are 10 years older than the Equestria Girl versions. Not something I agree with.

High school does not last 10 years and it is clear that the Ponies are not older than 20 at the very most.

This could all be solved if we just assume that their government doesn't really care about magic and that human Celestia and Luna are also Magical here.

probably not the case, but meh.

I like to think that, due to timeline shenanigans, Sunset is essentially still a teenager despite all the time that's passed in Equestria.

Well considering they measure time with moons and not sun rotations there is credence to that concept.

First year Timelord Academy stuff, really.

I had wondered about the time differential to, not just because of the age thing in general, but I've also noticed that the girls don't seem to mature or learn as quickly as the ponies. Going from the first film to the second, they seemed like they're locked into Season 1 personalities and quirks, such as RD pulling the plug on the game she was playing with AJ, which basically means, at the point of Rainbow Rocks, they still haven't made it to Episode 13 "Fall Weather Friends" (Running of the Leaves). Things definitely feel waaaaay slower in the EG universe.

If you send a parasprite there, does it become a tribble?

@Unity Don't correct someone else and make a worthless post about it when you are doing so. Just makes you look more like a jerk.

Just to clarify, yes, Senko, correct: I said that the ponies are about 10 years older than the humans.  We know that the ponies are in their mid to late twenties because Fluttershy's younger brother is a college drop out, and clearly appears to be in his early twenties.  Of course, something else worth noting about virtually all animated shows is that certain aspects of time arbitrarily stand still.  E.g. the Equestria Girls have been in high school for at least twice as long as it would take to graduate.  I believe they were suppose to be seniors in the first movie, (as evident by them looking back at their old freshmen pictures when they were the little CMC size) and yet three movies later and they're still there.  Just like how Bart and Lisa have been in the 4th and 2nd grade for 30 years, and practically every season there's a last-day-of-school episode and summer vacation episode.  It's just how animated shows work.  I for one would love to see a show that breaks that mold.  For instance, I think it would have been cool if the CMC were the size of the mane 6 by now, but I just don't know if they'll ever do that in a cartoon.
