I mean that sounds like my view of Sunset Shimmer and why I feel no urge to go back to EQG as a whole, if we’re talking about unpopular opinions. Perhaps not exactly, but she and “Sci-Twi” pretty sucked up all of the character development out of the room.

I don’t think “canon” ever mattered a lot to the writers, honestly. The number of inconsistencies across the show(s) is hilariously large, and even simple things seem to have been missed on occasion. See: Celestia went from loving theater and plays in S8 to despising them in S9 for no particular reason? Or the infamous example of Twi and ladybugs.
So, canon doesn’t really mean much outside of the broadest possible terms.

Suuuuure… that’s exactly how it works.
@TheFinite
…And it’s also entirely possible Celestia had seen it too many times to count to begin with, since Luna was away for a thousand years, and had thusly grown sick of it, if she wasn’t the first time. Like, it’s well established Celestia has done a lot of things for being a Princess’s sake, to the point it’s all samey (such as the Gala in the S1 finale being the “best one ever”), and I think that would potentially fall within that, if it was at the request of an ambassador or some such.
So it wouldn’t be outside of the realm of possibility for her to find the opera as “more of the same old crap I’ve put up with,” whereas for Luna, it’s completely new to her.

i don’t like there for not-cannon. that how star wars, my little pony and life works right?
@TheFinite
to bounce of shimmer and flesh her charater out.
i mean the same could be said about glimmer and she only interacts with twilight and the fan favs that get stapled to her.

They kept starlight on the sidelines in s8 finale because plenty felt she was taking up spotlight, so the writers kept her out. Say what u want about the s9 finale but plenty characters got to shine. Despite the claims of the finale ruining discord character, him tricking tirek chrysalis and cozy so he could deflect a beam to free starlight that could have killed him was awesome. Even at his quote on quote “worst” he is still a very noteworthy character.

the EQG mirror special should have just been30 minutes of sunset and starlight banging together tbh
On a more serious note, the fan wars between sunset and starlight were really dumb and annoying and im glad the special had them as friends instead of enemies.

It really never made sense for me to think of Starlight as “FiM’s version of Sunset Shimmer,” as many have stated, considering how differently they’re respectively handled; whether you like one or the other, or both, you enjoy them for different reasons, though most likely not without overlap in some of the reasoning (external vs internal conflict, more of a supporting role vs “true main character of the series”). It would’ve made little sense for them to be enemies outside of an AU.

You know, now that you said it. There is a meta reason why Starlight is disliked. Other than her disproportionate villainy and them ignoring her efforts on improving herself

To be fair, Starlight was great in The ending of the end. She was doing lots of heroic things that a main character from a idealistic kids show would do. I know many people didn’t like that episode, but by the time I watched it (last year), I accepted all the jank in the show, the good jank and the bad jank.
There was one scene where Starlight teleported herself and Chrysalis to a mountain to avoid damage in Ponyville and the friendship school. I wish we saw more of this in the last four seasons instead of waiting just for this episode to come out, but considering who we’re talking about, I think this is a great step foward.
One of the best episodes in season 9.

People really overlook that moment when talking about Starlight. She knew their fight was going to be destructive, so she moved it somewhere where bystanders wouldn’t get hurt. And then proceeded to come very close to winning a fight she had no business winning, mainly because she’s the only combat mage in Equestria.
Remember, kids, friendship is superior firepower.

Actually let’s make one on every villain and include reasons why. And yes, you may exclude not quite canon ones too if you know what I mean.
I was making it with their reformations in mind, which is why i had the dazzlings lower on the moral scale. Sure the dazzlngs don’t cause the chaos that discord still causes, but they are less reformed and more of neutral. As Discord has been shown to actively want to do good by others although often in his own way and the dazzlings are simply just mean bitches who haven’t been shown to care about anyone.
I’ll make more of a list in the future
