I guess that is technically true since anons do not seethe over her redemption but her mere existence. I wouldn't count it as a counterpoint though.

Because he's too retarded to appreciate the times when doing such actually benefited characters and instead thinks it's an inherently bad thing to do all the time always in every story.

I literally had no problem with the villains not being redeemed in S9. I loved them as ne'er-do-wells and ne'er-do-wells is what I want them to remain as. Better to die memorable than to fade into obscurity/uselessness.

>>38075145
Redemption is good.
>>
>>38076877
I would prefer if they just imprison him. I don’t mean throw him in jail or turn him stone, I’m talking about putting his essence into an object and hiding it somewhere. They’ll never kill anyone because it’s TV-Y. Maybe if they upped it to TV-Y7 he’ll get vaporized or something.

I personally hope they aren't redeemed. Best leave that to the fanfictions so it doesn't affect canon

Sombra redemption in S9 wouldn't make sense, and I don't think it'd make sense in G5 either.
What I do want, however, is G5 properly exploring his origins

Nah, they would make for a great redemption. Those are great.

Redeem Chrysalis and kill off the rest
She's pratically the main villain of the series, so redeeming her would leave an impact on you unlike the rest

You need to stop thinking with your dick. She and Tirek had the same number of evil plots and episode appearances. Tirek is shown to be both smarter and a higher threat level than her. He is also from G1.

Yes, that was an episode. Good job, anon.
Seriously, what are you trying to convey? Speak in full sentences, you lazy bum. Do you think that prove she somehow had more episodes than Tirek? It doesn't. They both appeared in 4 episodes prior to season 9, and both were villains in 2 finales.

Tirek almost destroyed all of Equestria and was a much bigger threat than Chrysalis ever was. And he was the one who told Gozy how to remove magic from Equestria. He was the co-antagonist, not an accessory.
There's also his backstory where he would have won if not for his brother's betrayal.

You're moving goalposts now. I already gave you their episode count and their accomplishments. Tirek is objectively a bigger bad than Chrysalis. Deal with it.

The topic is who is the ponies main villain and the other anon was downplaying Tirek's feats. Power levels are a genuine point of discussion in this instance. Don't be hating cause I'm right.
>>
>>38080429
I just checked their episode count and I did forget that she appears in P1 of the S6 finale via hologram. So I guess you are technically correct about the episode count. 1 extra episode where she just makes a phone call does not make her the main villain though.

Would it have been better if Nightmare Moon was depowered and slowly redeemed over time instead of just zapped into being good?

Mean Twilight should have been the final main villain.

And Chrysalis almost *conquered* all of Equestria. Twice.
First time by capturing Canterlot, then by covertly replacing all of the princesses and the Mane Six.

I'm conflicted. I love the Luna we got*, but I do think having her redemption not just be the product of a magical laser would've probably been better. It definitely would've been a better way to show that what she did can't be undone even though she's been redeemed.

What would've been the best rating for the show, assuming no changing throughout the show?

>who is the ponies main villain
None. That was the main point of discussion in 2017 leaks: G4 didn't have "evil side", just unrelated villains. They wanted to create unified evil forces for G5, but apparently all those plans were shattered by Hasbro exes dragging their feet and running in circles and time running out.

What chance exactly? The hyper-rainbow-friendship attack failed to reform them like they did with Luna, Sunset and Stygian, so they're clearly irredeemable. Plus Chrysalis clearly rejected redemption in s06 finale.
>>
>>38081632
You mean the same attack that stoned Discord, sent Luna to the moon, killed Sombra and banished the POS? That attack only depowered them so if we go by that logic, then taking away their unearned power is the only punishment they needed. The stoning was only from Discord, Celestia and Luna.

Yes, she did. She was offered a hoof right after her defeat and nothing else as far as attempts go. Why didn't they just turn Discord back to stone when he started mocking the M6 for trying to reform him? Both he and Starlight were given far more help in that regard then a simple offer.
>>
>>38075145
>Another gollypedo thread
Go to bed, Seth.
>>
>>38081786
Discord got stoned. They didn't try to reform him before stoning him. So, your point is moot.
>>
>>38081830
Except that its not because my point was that he got stoned by the friendship rainbow attack thing while it only depowered the trio. You or the other anon before me argued that because the friendship laser is somehow proof that they couldn't be reformed when really, it did to them what it did to Luna and Sunset, which was depower them into a previous form while it straight up turned Discord to stone. Therefore if we go by rainbow laser logic, they should have gotten a second chance.
>>
>>38081848
>Therefore if we go by rainbow laser logic, Discord should never have been fmreformed
Anyway, Harmony now have both avatar and agents, if She wanted to reform trio, She would have sent Her agents (Y6) to free and reform them.
>>
>>38081945
That still does not change the fact that the rainbow laser gave the trio the same punishment it gave to two now reformed villains while it stoned Discord and Luna the first time. Why would it give them such a comparatively light punishment when Discord, who apparently deserved all that leniency once he got released, was straight up stoned by it?
>>
>>38080228

>>38081958
Anyway, no one says the trio couldn't have bene released from stone and reformed sometime between the coronation and The Last Problem, same as Discord.

I'd absolutely love to agree with that, but the with what Discord said right after their stoning and the cheering that followed gave it a sense of permanency. I just wish they did something like in this comic.

>What would've been the best rating for the show, assuming no changing throughout the show?

Depends it probably couldn't go more mature than PG but.
>TV-Y7
Basically what we got, maybe slightly darker friendship problems.
>TV-G
Darker humor, and more comedy in general. Episodes now have a freer formula with occasional humorous or artsy slice of life stuff with no real lesson. Por Ejemplo: An episode about Rainbow Dash telling a ridiculous story to Spitfire about why she's late for practice, Spitfire chews her out before it turns out everything Rainbow said did happen.
>TV-PG
Full on epic magical girl adventure with series long story arcs with anti villains, and fight scenes. Could be amazing, could be crap desperately trying to pander to edgy weeb tween girls.
>>
>>38075145
I hope they go with something more like the comic canon for G5 Sombra. That would be pretty killer.
