Well, that cinches it in my mind.
The storm king is going to be BTFO by strife and he will will be the big bad of the movie.
The storm king is going to get "eviler than thou'd" by Strife after playing the Good guys off of Storm king, and end up resuced by the ponies, and realize that Friends are a Strength, not a weakness.
At the same time, Strife is going to play both sides against each other and have a much more evil omnicidal goal than the storm king's big fun attitude.
On that note, 9/10, really liked how the storm king acted. Also, he acted much more in line with the reason for invasions in the ancient past: You raped and pillaged the other kingdom, you didn't take it over, for all the reasons the storm king said-- you just grabbed shit and got out unless you were the romans or it was strategically valuable. (That being said, being a trade nation, that would have counted for being "Strategically valuable" in most countries minds)
