Big Bads as Metaphors

Recommended Posts

What do you think each of the show's big bads represents from a symbolic and metaphorical standpoint? (Ex: Queen Chrysalis is a metaphor for selfish love and one-sided relationships). Note: This can include S2 Discord and S5 Starlight Glimmer.

Seven deadly sins comes to mind.

  • Starlight = Wrath
  • Chrysalis = Lust
  • Tirek = Gluttony
  • Nightmare Moon = Pride 
  • Flim & Flam = Greed 
  • Sunset = Envy 
  • Discord = Sloth

Interesting way of looking at it. I like to look at it like this:

  • Nightmare Moon = Resentment and bitterness. 
  • Discord = Letting our personal flaws get in the way of our relationships.
  • Flim and Flam = Corprate greed. 
  • Dragons = Toxic masculinity and fake toughness.
  • Changelings/Queen Chrysalis = Selfish love; one-sided relationships.
