Shining Armor or Big Mac, who's had more development?


Recommended Posts

I'd say they've both gotten roughly the same amount of development.

With Big Macintosh becoming more open about his feelings and emotions.

With Shining Armor, we've seen his more dorky, paternal side as of late. And he's contributed more to the main storyline 

Plus, you could argue that Shining Armor got more development since he didn't make the best first impression during his debut.

True, but Big Mac was always at least an amusing side character, and he never disowned his sister.

Context is for kings, here. There was good reason for Shining Armor to "disown" Twilight, in light of what he and any other pony knew at the time. Shapeshifting, emotion-eating bug ponies is probably a bit too far a leap for anypony to make, and Twilight didn't really know the score either. Plus, there was nopony, not even Celestia herself, who did not consider Twilight's actions to be beyond the pale. Seems a bit unfair to highlight SA as the jerk in this scenario, considering not even Spike believed Twilight.

I'm joking of course. But Big Macintosh is slightly more endearing  since he started off as an amusing side character who's later appearances showed a layer of emotional depth.
