Does anybody else wish to see something made of the whole "Sombra's horn survived" thing? Perhaps some sort of return at the most or like a cult trying to bring him back to life with it or something?

Sounds silly I know and I guess it is a little too late now but oh well.

He's Cell. His cells can absorb the techniques of others, though I don't think it necessarily has to be people he defeats. Probably just touching Goku while being instantly transmitted allowed him to learn the technique.

Besides, it's not like other characters haven't been able to mimic moves. Tien was able to copy the Kamehameha, as did Buu, and Frieza's Death Saucer is basically a red version of Krillin's Destructo Disk.

I don't think that's anthro at all; I think the overlap here is that Ponies in FIM, as they are, are incredibly human looking: as such, the EQG humans look very similiar to anthro humans and vice versa.

For example, here's another image of twilight like that first image: Do you think THIS is anthro?

>awkward cough

Kind of wondering how they're going to do flash and twilight's relationship here, given how they seem to be pushing human light and Flash in the toys with them holding hands and everything.

I think they will pull some of this cards

1. Flash sentry will be wondering around new twilight, she will not be the same as the other, but will end up being just a friend, and from there will born a justified love betwen the new couple.

2. They say something like "just like friendship is eternal multidimensionaly, love is to, so that mean they will fall in love just because one is twilight reflection"

3. They just fall inlove because flash keep being nice to new twilight, and she fall into his enchantment and coolness.

I dont know, he is just such a lame tool that i dont know what they want to do with him.

Well the artist did, since they tagged it as anthro.

>Do you think THIS is anthro?
Yes. And so did the artist for that piece since they also put anthro in as a tag.

I think people expect too much from Sombra because they didn't understand what he was meant to represent. He didn't want to take over the world or steal the elements or anything that expansive. All he desired was his CRYSTALSSSS and SLAVESSSSS. Simple wants for a simple mind. It's as though whatever force made him what he is had also rotted his brain, leaving only a bestial, easily-placated id. He's intended as a cautionary tale; power corrupts. Which could retrospectively make him the darkest, most meaningful villain the series has.

To run with the LotR analogy ITT, Sombra isn't Sauron. Not by a longshot. He's Gollum with a good PR agent. At best maybe a Ringwraith, since they're also slaves to their own powerlust.

He's too one-note to physically come back IMO, but if we can get a mention or a flashback or a disembodied spirit once Twilight inevitably gets tempted to the dark side, he'll have fulfilled his purpose to the fullest degree.

That's actually what I had hoped he'd be, as I figured he and Trixie would have been a great Build up to Twilight being tempted by dark magic.

But While I think that'd be great, McCarthy didn't intend him that way, and it wasn't the purpose she had in mind.
Which kind of is hilarious that she tried to write sauron and ended up with gollum XD

What if a regular unicorn is able to best alicorn Princess Twilight?

Would you enjoy this turn of events?
Or would you welcome the idea with all your joy?

It would definitely prove that alicorn powers don't make you stronger than every other being.

I kind of like to think they were created by some overbeing of the universe; it would give them a bit more mystique by making them as a race have a purpose.

On that note, I'm actually 100% expecting more info about alicorns in the future, given how things have started to revolve more and more around them plotwise and universe wise.

So aside from reality warping + chaos related powers (and the occasional 4th wall breaking, although I doubt that counts as a "power) what sorts of powers do you think Discord has?

I do remember him opening a doorway that seemingly led to a white vastnass of nothing. Although this could just be a fancier form of his teleportation via clicking, I like to think Discord can access other dimensions and realties, such as the alternate reality EG is set in.

although you could get meta with the fourth wall breaking and say he can access the worlds other cartoons are set in, but that's just a silly little headcanon

Seriously, given Discord's nature, I think it's safe to say that his skill set is composed of whatever his twisted mind can think up. Not even the sky is the limit for him.

He can do anything he wants: but his power is still limited.

Think of it this way: He's someone at an RPG table who can say "This happens!" but is still bound by the rules of the RPG: So he can say "I've just created a wall of ice!" but that Ice is still able to be hit by a fireball. And as his magic is limited in power, he can't say "the ice is unmeltable" but rather has a set melting point according to his power.

So he's multi-functional, like a batman wizard who could cast spontaneously, but he is still 100% subject to other magics if they are applicable.

S3 through S4 all turn out to be an illusion that the Door actually trapped twilight in during TCE, and the entireity of her becoming a princess is just a delusion of herself achieving all her dreams.

Meanwhile, due to Celestia stupidly risking the fate of the world as "test", Sombra has taken over everything. Twilight gets free'd from her delusion by Luna destroying the door and spends S5 overlooking all the horrors her failure has wrought.

Reminder that if Twilight had failed to go to Ponyville and thus did not stop Nightmare Moon-

Trixie would probably be a good replacement element of magic and may have later become a princess.

-Alicorns have a gland that generates totipotent autologous stem cells which are delivered to all parts of the body through the blood stream, hence the extremely extended mortality, and massive growth rate difference. These stem cells have delivery proteins on the outside that allow them to travel swiftly to the part of the body where they are needed without fight from the body. They also have glands that generate other important substances such as myelin, that would otherwise not be regenerated as time passed.

-All ponies contain the genes for wings and horns, but they also carry dominant deactivator gene alleles that will deactivate one or the other or sometimes both (either deactivator gene will also deactivate the growth of glands that generate the totipotent stem-cells and other important regenerative materials). Non-functioning deactivator alleles are recessive. The functioning deactivator alleles also simultaneously produce the chemical that tells the mother's uterus that the embryo is not a foreign invader. Therefore, if a pony receives two non-functioning deactivator alleles, then the mother's uterus will treat the embryo as a foreign invader and destroy it (therefore preventing the natural birth of alicorns). For this reason, alicorns must be intentionally made by altering the genetic code of a pony (simply disabling one or both of the deactivator alleles) and facilitating the rapid growth of the missing parts.

-Unicorn magic is really a complex tool that allows the control of remote objects through quantum entanglement. Laws of physics still apply: 1-Energy cannot be created or destroyed, meaning that for something to receive energy, something else must lose it. 2-Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, meaning for one thing to be pushed up, another must be pushed down. 3-Distance increases the difficulty of the horn to accurately manipulate the quantum entanglements, but otherwise does not affect the energy required to perform magic.

>The lack of such caution in Equestria when such things as water towers, Ursa Minors, and the sun and moon are being tossed around indicates to me that magical forces in Pony Country don't obey Newton's equal-and-opposite laws.

I wouldn't be so sure. Check the image. See the ground around her hooves? Being displaced by the 'weight' of her spell. That's Equal-Opposite reaction.

And again, as I hypothesised, the Sun and the Moon can not be the same as our own. For them to be the size that they are and to be moved as they are, they must be smaller and be artificial machines, rather than a ball of rocks and a burning orb of fire. Especially because the moon is generating it's own light and effecting the atmosphere independent of the Sun.

>generate their own light
The moon can be crescent, as in Apple Family Reunion. Though I'm still not sure how that works, unless Luna just had it in the wrong place.

As more S5 and EQG3 info is released, thought it'd be better to separate the two threads.

Short overview of EQG3 info:

-"Friendship games", inter-school competition story
-"Science Twilight" playing a large role in the movie
-"Shadowbolts" name of the villains/villain team, and "Crystal Prep" being the school name
-Releasing in Fall 2015
