Today re-watched this, and it was better then I remembered, the interactions felt natural and pleasant to watch. Fluttershy finally got a real moment to shine and there were many great comedic moments like dash just bucking the dragon in the snout. The ending with dash incidentally saying pinkie scared her and then trying to cover it up was very nice. 8\10

Obligatory Dovashy   Just gotta say it here, I lost my drink when Fluttershy came out from behind that rock and start teaching some manner to that dragon   Oh, and Fluttershy being afraid of he

Now c'mon, AJ helping Fluttershy around the mountain is one of the most awesome kindness shown! That's my highlight.

Oh wow. This is my favorite episode of the whole show. It's why Fluttershy is my favorite mane 6 pony. I could watch that scene where she calls out the dragon over and over and over again, and it woul

This is a solid episode. All of the mane six are pretty one note (except Applejack who doesn't even have a personality), but that's not a big problem because they have really cute and fun interactions. I like a lot of the little character moments here like the joking when the mane six first climb the mountain and the subtle reactions they make to each other. It makes their friendship more realistic and more fun to watch. There are a few jokes that fall flat and the mane six can be a bit too one note, but most of the episode is simple fun.

Score: 7/10

Yeah, I liked it. It gave Fluttershy more character and showed us that shyness and fear isn't the only major part of her personality. Despite the episode being centered around Fluttershy, I felt that the rest of the Mane Six were significant enough, so it didn't feel bare bones. I don't have many gripes, though I feel that Fluttershy standing up to the dragon could've been built up to better, especially since the stakes are a lot higher. Perhaps throughout the episode, we could've seen her get slightly more confident, which could've been symbolised by climbing the mountain. Aside from that, the pacing was good and I enjoyed what it offered. Considering that this is a very early episode, it did a pretty good job with what it was aiming for.

Great episode.  Had a classical, LOTR-style adventure feel.  The enduring quality of this episode comes from seeing Fluttershy's hidden inner strength for the first time.  Beneath that meek exterior lies the might of a warrior.  When pushed too far, she's a force to be reckoned with.  We gradually saw this strength surface in little ways, here and there, more and more as the series went along, which was very nice.  Her character arc was well done.

All I have to say is, GUYS I THOUGHT YOU HAD A PLAN IF THE DRAGON LEAVES HIS CAVE!!!! :glimmer: But luckily Fluttershy was there to save the day and tell that dragon that he had to go :fluttershy:

Overall a good episode, I loved how applejack was so nice to fluttershy, and for some reason I find Pinkie constantly beating Rarity at tic tac toe hilarious :laugh:

I remember watching this one years ago. I quite like it. The dragon just needed a nap and picked the wrong spot lol. Fluttershy is not at all shy when her friends are hurt and she always has a way of solving things at the end. Nice simple episode. I wish the dragon talked more though.

Fluttershy is my best pony. :fluttershy: I always enjoy those moments when her inner strength comes out and she gets as tough as she needs to be. I love those moments and so I love this episode :)

Yes, I agree the dragon could have talked  more, but this doesn't take anything away from this episode for me.

I already liked Fluttershy from the start, but this episode really made her my favorite. I like this episode so much that I've actually rewatched it numerous times. From the humor to the setting to the synopsis and to Fluttershy herself, this episode was very enjoyable to watch, and it still is today :yay:!

Starting with the synopsis and the theme, it is very interesting. We got a good taste of fantasy adventure with this episode, which I definitely appreciate. Then there is the journey upward and Fluttershy's adorable portrayal. Throughout the journey she made so many embarrassing slip ups due to her fears, which I found both funny and adorable. I don't know why, but I love the funny scene where her wings just lock up and stop working due to her fear. Is that a thing that just happens to pegasi when they get really scared, or is it just Fluttershy? She is so scared and inconvenient throughout the journey, yet I don't mind. It's part of why I love Fluttershy, and it also really shows how much her character progressed as the series went on :squee:.

Then there's there's the scene where they confront the dragon. After coming all the way up, Fluttershy still didn't have the courage to help out. You can tell she feels really bad, but her fear and anxiety are winning her over. But this changes after the dragon sends her friends in pummeling to a rock. Seeing what had happened to her friends, Fluttershy realized what she had to do, and ordered the dragon to stop and asked it to go somewhere else. It showed that while she has her fears, Fluttershy really cares for her friends, and that she is there for them. It was a very satisfying ending!

So as you can see, I really like this episode, and just Fluttershy in general. My only real gripe is Rainbow's attitude toward Fluttershy, but even that can be forgiven due to her caring attitude in Hurricane Fluttershy. Overall this was a great episode, and definitely one of my favorites :yay:!

How to describe Dragonshy...

The episode to me, is kinda straight forward. Fluttershy goes with friends, scared of the giant dragon, hesitates many times to reach the top, says she gives up, and finally stands her ground and solves the problem. It's easy to guess where to plot leads in this episode, but hey, can't say no to Fluttershy being assertive, and to a dragon nonetheless. It's also nice to know that Fluttershy isn't always scared, she can take into action when the time calls. Though I'll be honest, if someone slowed me down and high stakes are involved, I'd be annoyed too.

I also think it's nice than that everyone has a way for making the dragon leave that also ties to their personality. Twilight tries to negotiate with the dragon, Rarity uses charm, Pinkie uses laughter, and Rainbow is choosing the direct approach. We don't see Applejack's, but I think I can assume that it's somewhat similar to Rainbow's based on when she used the apples for 'ammunition'. I can also appreciate the dragon not booting them all of them out at the first encounter, only when they're done or did something that alarmed him in a way.

In my opinion, Dragonshy isn't a bad episode, but I wouldn't say it's the greatest, mostly cause I think there are other episodes out there that take Fluttershy's character a bit better
