what is so bad about alicorn twilight sparkle because i don't see the issue

i mean for the most part twilight sparkle acts like she did in the first 3 seasons except she has wings now and shes a princess i mean come on is it really that much of a issue that bronies have to complain about it

maybe its something im missing i don't know but can someone explain to me how alicorn twilight is so bad because to me it dosen't hurt the show at all

im not a brony i just watch the show

bronys are the fans who see mlp as this holy grail of shows i do admit when the show has flaws but its entertaining for the most part and does have a heart to is that most shows don't have nowerdays so no i dont see myself as a brony just someone whos willing to watch it now and again because i dont see it as a girls show i see it as a good cartoon

but even i can see that a design change dosent automatically ruin a character

Haha, I didn't even know what the hell he was talking about until I read his post.

But seriously, there's like 2 people on this entire website who can have any input on this, I'd recommend going to a MLP fan forum or something if you really want a meaningful discussion about this.

Y'know it always bugs me when people ask this. It isn't just a matter of aesthetic design. Like, there was just something so subdued about how she was written before, but now it doesn't feel quite as compelling; she had some gritty lines, without feeling melodramatic, she was sort of awkward, without grating on you constantly. It just feels like every time she opens her mouth now, it negatively deconstructs what she had been building towards thus far. And her dynamics and who she is in relation to all the other characters has changed so much since then, because of that. I can understand somebody still liking her, but personally, it seems to me like that somebody is just settling. There was no reason to change that character besides a lazy attempt to keep things fresh, and it shows.

so i haven't watched since like season 2 but YO FUCK THAT SHIT! Its a buncha mary sue nonsense. Besides everyone knows that Luna is the one during the real work, she is best pony after all.

Personally, I don't like how they made her into a vehement racist. I mean, I wasn't even aware there were jewish ponies until this season. The racial slurs and hateful glances just feel feel out of place with how she was in the first few seasons, but I know some fans don't think it's that big of a deal when she rants about "Alicorn Power". I guess I'm just weird.

I'm cool with whatever and everyone should love what they love, but everyone should also love applying context.

She did things nopony should do and needs to be held accountable for her crimes.

See you all next season.

This is going to be a book of revelations to many readers. In particular, many will be surprised to learn that Alicorn Twilight consorts with the worst types of inimical, licentious bloodsuckers there are. I will start this discussion by arguing that appalling, procacious loblollies will always band together to exhibit cruelty to animals. Then, I will present evidence that most people would agree that I am not ashamed to admit that it's always sadly comic to listen to Alicorn's blather about how individual worth is defined by race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. But once you've admitted that, you've admitted that McCarthyism has long been Alicorn's lodestar. And it follows inexorably that, except in special cases, she is locked into her present course of destruction. She does not have the interest or the will to change her fundamentally indelicate double standards. The last point I'll make is this: I find Alicorn Twilight's flights of fancy to be a perversion of the truth.

2 reasons why Bronies are mad:

A - They thought that too much focus was on Twilight when she became an alicorn.

B - Toys Toys Toys. Hasbro got to make a bunch of Twilight toys with wings, and at the end of this season the ponies all went Super Sayion, so guess what? MORE TOYS! In other words, toys>storyline.

BTW Don't you think that maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe you're asking the wrong forum this question? Like seriously lol

Frankly, what happened this season is exactly what the International Criminalicorn Court was designed for. I sincerely hope Gen. Alicorn Popović Twilight gets what is coming to her.

Yeah... It kind of bugs me too, to be honest. I just tried to avoid bringing it up, because I know how heated the discussions get around these parts when you bring up "Alicorn Power." Though, I guess avoiding the issue may not be the best approach, when I think about it.

I really thought it was unnecessary when Kenshirocorn used the Hokutocorn Zankai-Corn on Spadelight Sparkly. And on another note, has anyone been reading JoJoCorn? That Josuke Higashicornta is a card, ain't he?

The only way we'll ever reach anything close to true equality amongst ponies is if we stop sweeping it under the rug and face it head on. I'm glad Alicorn Twilight's recent outbursts in the last season have brought greater notice to the pervasive prejudice which continues to plague Equestria.

Yeah, uh... Raspberry Sparkle Zeppeli really didn't need to remind us ten thousand times that "This is Sendocorn." But at least they're switching things up a bit this season.

All too true. It surprised many fans, but considering the recent report from the Anti-Defamation League indicating that over 1/4 of all people in the world are antisemitic, I suppose they had to go for what's popular.

Everything? Sure. I haven't seen the show beyond a few episodes when it was the hot thing, but I'm going to guess everything is wrong with everything.
