Do you think Princess Luna is more popular than Princess Celestia in the eyes of the ponies of Equestria?

 

I think that Princess Luna could be more popular than Princess Celestia due to the fact that ponies still sacrifice their candy to Nightmare Moon

 

even though it's been at least a couple of years since Princess Luna's return*. *My argument isn't very good. :mlp_please:

Ha! You figured it out didn’t you?

 

Actually I suspect the younger ponies would be more connected to her. In about twenty years Luna would be more popular than Tia.

I think eventually... she would be. She seems to be more personal than Celestia. And... i don't know what it is about most redeemed characters... but they try really hard to earn forgiveness compared to people that have never messed up... i think. Ehh... not a good argument.

Sadly, no, and that seems to be what drives her towards nightmare moon....

 

But at least the fillies of Ponyville appreciate her - the CMC not least :)

At the time of "Luna Eclipsed", the Ponyville citizens weren't even aware of any connection between Luna and Nightmare Moon outside of looking similar.

To answer the question of the topic, I'd say ask the ponies of Equestria, but I doubt they would be able to come up with an answer.

Personally, I think Celestia is more popular. Not only does Celestia actually rule over Equestria unlike Luna who seems to function more as therapist, she kept it safe from treaths for a thousands years whilst Luna were nearly reasonable for it's destruction not once, but twice.

Didn't that particular tradition start less out of respect and more out of fear?

Princess Luna may be more famous than her sister, but unfortunately in a bad light, due to Nightmare Moon

Of course Luna is more popular than her sister in the fandom. Everypony loves her because of her edgy personality. I see bronies go crazy over her and Derpy merch at conventions.

I should have read the thread more carefully before voting. I think Princess Celestia would still be seen more favorably by Equestrians than her sister. This is not simply because of the Nightmare Moon factor; Celestia seems to make more public appearances than Luna which may downplay her role in the perception of the citizens.

Same. I slipped up too. :P 

Logically, it would make more sense for Celestia to be more popular since she's more social and outgoing. However, Canterlot Boutique implied that Luna is a hit with the "goth ponies", so it could go either way. Maybe the case is that Celestia has a greater number of fans, but Luna's fanbase is much more devoted, who knows.

According to a poll in EqD, Luna is the most likeable character all time, even Autumn Blaze still couldn't bear her popularity.

Possibly. I think this would be due to the differences in how both sisters engage with the citizens. While Celestia is seen more publicly, it is not entirely clear how much time she is able to use to knowing the citizens personally. We have seen Luna reaching out to Equestrians through their dreams, for instance, which would be far more intimate than any speech told to an audience of hundreds or thousands but also limits how many ponies one could interact with at all. So, again, Celestia would probably have more broad appeal, but Luna would have a smaller set of admirers (in terms of preferring her over Celestia) who may have had more of an intimate time with her; this still downplays Luna's general appeal though it seems to be fitting of her character to have this role rather than being the more prominent figurehead of Equestria.

 

Do think allowing re-voting in the poll would be good.
