Where was Discord and Starlight Glimmer during the events of the Movie?

Recommended Posts

Just saw the movie (I know I waited so long ;-;) and I couldn't help but wonder where Discord and Starlight were throughout the movie, maybe I missed them? I haven't seen the latest season of MLP ye (I'm waiting for a box set) so if that explains it let me know :3

The movie has an anti automatic plot resolution program that makes Discord and Starlight entirely useless.

I mean just think about it, if both of them really have a role, storm king's army would be crippled by the time they arrived.

Even the 3 princesses are freaking useless!

Starlight might've been captured, and Discord idk maybe he was off somewhere hanging out with space lizards from Andromeda...

Actually, thinking back, Discord might've been discreetly feeding off of the chaos Storm King created. Once he saw Fluttershy was doing alright with her friends, he would've let the plot run its course.

You bring up a really good point about Discord, I like that theory it seems like such a Discord thing to do :P

Just now, Denim&Venom said:

Same place that shining armor and the royal guard were? 

I forgot to mention those stupid guards too! Also the wonderbolts? ^_^

And why do they have to seek help from a long lost civilization when they have relations with the yaks, dragons, and changelings?

That movie is so freaking... weird man. Even one of my school mate agreed.

Starlight was busy chilling with Trixie someplace far away, obviously! And Discord was just hanging out, creating chaos in his own dimension, like he usually is.

starlight glimmer was probably captured (or escaped.. who knows) but she was in the movie for like.. one second in the festival.

SG was probably a prisoner.

As for Discord, he’s his own being. Pretty much the essence of true neutral.

Starlight got taken out by a surprise attack at the very beginning of the assault.

Discord wasn't invited, as usual.

Starlight was most likely captured alongside Trixie in some manner. They had some sort of magic-repelling armor, so I can see it working against someone like her.

As for Discord, I still tend to believe that he wants the ponies to take care of themselves for the most part. He likely saw the Storm King as a minor threat and let the ponies figure it out.

I pointed this out in another post, but if Discord were around, he could just poof the army away. And much like in a review of Dragonshy, (if Tia poofed the dragon away) that wouldn't be fair because then we wouldn't have an episode (or movie). Well, we WOULD, but a very short one.

Often pointed out though that, despite being ostensibly the two most powerful magic users in Equestria, Celestia and/or Luna seem to get taken out of the picture far, far too easily so that the Mane 6 can save the day. At least in more recent finales, we are given a reasonable explaination for that (but still can't see how a bunch of changelings could silently and tracelessly overpower either of them in a guarded palace, not to mention the crystal empire characters and so forth)

Discord is less of a mystery given he is frequently absent (and didn't even notice Fluttershy had been ponynapped, for example) but it seems to be mostly that the ponies just aren't very good at fighting; Twilight couldn't reliably hit a bird the size of a barn while flying directly behind it, and Pharynx stuck Glimglam in a bag (despite her being the most massively overpowered unicorn in equestria)

There’s Starlight Glimmer, and then there’s  just Starlight.

(don’t be scared :c)

Aside from Starlight Glimmer who was seen at one point, maybe Discord was busy watching the show knowing he could put an end to it eventually :nom: .

I mean he’s basically God-like, no :wacko: ?

Yeah, the movie has a lot of unexplained happenings. I'm surprised there's even a Glim Glam movie toy. (Why does she have her old hair on the box?)

As far as the movie's concerned, the only characters that matter are the Main 6 and anyone voiced by someone famous

Everyone else are just background decorations

 

Should've had Starlight and Trixie do the opening exposition instead of two nobodies

Discord was nowhere to be seen during the adventure, but he has no problem going to the after party.

The two fled into a portal which mixed the worlds of Angry Beavers and CatDog into one:mlp_icwudt:
