They are ponies and she's human, it's hard to compare them.

They are not overrated. They had to defeat Tirek together, taking him on one by one would ultimately lead to their downfall. Can't really compare Megan to the Mane 6.

Well, who else would've done it? Derpy and Cheese Sandwich?

 

 

 

 

 

Actually, that's a pretty cool idea...

It'd be like "The Other Guys" episode of Stargate SG-1

Hey. Can't help it! I'm a big fan of escape from midnight castle!

So am I (and it is called Rescue From Midnight Castle by the way), as a matter of fact I re watched that before watching the season finale today but even if Megan was really that awesome (and I am really just saying this for the sake of argument) it dosen't mean that the mane 6 are overrated in the slightest. I think Fluttershy is a bit overrated though not as much as she used to be due to the whole cute factor (I like her don't get me wrong but still) but as for the others I am going to say probably not especially Rarity and Applejack.

I'm not sure about the main 6 as a whole, maybe for Rainbow Dash. But it takes skill (I guess) to defeat him alone!

I agree their not overrated except for Fluttershy and Rarity. I was really hoping Minty and Toola-Rula would be in the show and make the Mane 6 the Mane 8. Plus they where original ponies like Pinkie Pie and Rarity. They deserve to be in along in the spotlight.

Yes, the mane 6 are overrated as fuck. I'd much prefer seeing a bunch of no-personality bg ponies and lousy one-shots save the day

Not even species, more a matter of the fact that character personalities were far more 2D in G1 than now in G4 x) I don't think the Mane Six are overrated at all.

Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy have always kind of been in the past, but not as of late. Other than that, AJ and Rarity were underrated, Pinkie and Twilight got the right amount of attention, and Fluttershy and RD were overrated. That seems to really have shifted fandom wide, though, so I don't know. I think RD and Fluttershy took a huge hit this season in terms of popularity, but not enough to drop them to the bottom. I think RD and Twilight are the most popular now, followed by Rarity and Pinkie, with AJ and Fluttershy in the back - honestly, I see more complaints about Fluttershy than I do praise these days, and I'm all over the bronynet :D

 

Rambling aside, no, I don't think the mane 6 are overrated, but certain ones have been in the past - the distribution is a lot less lopsided after S4, even after the shift :D

Sigh ... putting a direct reader/viewer vessel in a cartoon is overrated. It is also lazy writing and smacks of talking down to your audience.

 

And I won't go into the who point that a show about friendship and working together to achieve a common goal does not make the characters overrated. It means that they are supporting the entire point of the show

The question in the OP assumes that the only way to "rate" a character is by their power level, as opposed to how well written, well acted, or interesting they are.  The Mane Six have that in spades over anyone from G1.

Most of the posts in this thread already compared the Mane 6 to Megan in terms of storytelling quality.  But since the OP is also drawing a comparison between Megan's rainbow and the Mane 6's ultimate weapon, I will address that.  It's not exactly the same, but don't forget that Megan had to go on a journey with her pony friends to get that rainbow in the first place. They learned some lessons along the way which lent to the overall experience. In G1 the character building moments were incidental and, as far as I can tell, they would have been able to use the rainbow against Tirek even if they "didn't learn anything". But Lauren Faust tied the two together in MLP:FiM by making the development of virtues is mandatory for unlocking that tremendous power.

Well in the G1 all Meghan had to to do was literally open a can of rainbow to defeat Tirek while Twilight and the rest of the mane 6 actually have to work together to defeat him.

In a sense yeah, just like most of the G4 characters. But can't really compare them to Megan, very different.
