I’m kinda okay with (G4) earth ponies genuinely having no magic, the same way humans are ‘normies’ in settings with elves and dwarves. At any rate, I headcanon crystal ponies as legit having no power beyond looking pretty.
Oh, speaking of crystal ponies, it was very probably your original post that inspired me to think of this. Posted here because, well, in my case, heavy emphasis on the stupid (and probably inaccurate to boot).
— glorified mood rings
— risk dying because they stay in the arctic with only an easily broken/depowered artefact to protect them
— simps and proud of it
— only risk their lives when brainwashed or there’s the entire world backing them up
— only important named character is from the comics and outsimps them all by selling them out to her husbando
— their episodes are about Spike, his simp, Sunburst and/or HIS simp
— worship Spike while not giving a damn about Cadance who exhausted herself protecting them
— need help for everything, ever
— cute ponybugs with funny accents
— risk dying because they’re tiny defenseless ponybugs
— not a single simp
— regularly and willingly risk their lives into a death world (for them)
— actually have an important named character in the show proper
— their episode involved Fluttershy shaking her butt in a bee outfit
— actually thankful to the right person
— need help to not starve in their pocket dimension
Like I said, putting the “stupid” back in ‘stupid pony stuff that comes to mind.’ In case using the terms “simps” and “husbando” didn’t tip you off.
