Awkward MLP moments


Ittoni

Recommended Posts

(edited)

I was trying to remember when the mane six were discussing the map at start of season 8 I believe (when the school happens) and how the first thing that comes to my memory is the moment Twilight says something similar to "there's probably a lot of places outside equestria that know nothing about friendship". And it always makes me laugh because it sounded so much like a white savior conquistador. I find it so awkward and insulting to all non ponies given the racism theme of this episodes that it's funny that is coming from her as her reasoning to justify teaching friendship.

 

Also when the cmcs were trying to give rumble the opportunity to find his cutiemark were thundelane does that eyebrow gesture at the end at them is like... No.. what are you doing... Stop, that's weird.

Ahhh... Idk

Edit: oh I remember now. It was "there's creatures out there that know nothing about friendship", which is way worse :P

To me, all the school of friendship episodes were not only awkward, but downright cringe because how downright ridiculous the whole idea is, and how stupid the logic behind no other nation knowing about friendship or being capable of having any since is almost impossible for any social animal to not develop a friendship with others.

Also, everytime anyone said "everycreature", "somecreature" and all related words because... let's face it, is stupid and that isn't even a pun. Everypony works because how pony it is ;)

And the list goes on. There are far too many awkward or cringey moments in late seasons, though I can certainly recall some early season moments that also caused cringe or awkwardness on me when watching them, like the fashion thingie during season one with the awful costumes designed by the main six who didn't listen to Rarity.

Let's not forget while she was outside of Equestria during the movie, there were folks like the Pirates and Seaponies/hyppogriffs who showed her and the others friendship and kindness during her travels. WHY WOULD SHE SAY THAT?! Just ignore continuity when it was spat on our faces that very episode?

Newbie Dash pretty much prides itself in embarrassing the audience, and that's even before taking into account the episode justifying hazing and bullying

Its also awkward how the only non-ponies at the school are the 5 members of the Student 6 as well.
Making the whole "everycreature" bit more weird when used in the school's case.

Don't blame Twilight; blame the fact that the line was poorly written.

I know. Poor twitwi. She is much better than what the writers make her do or say sometimes and it's weird to have to see it :worry:
