Redemption Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829439

Black Snootie - destroyed
Discord - redeemed
Chrysalis - crazy hobo
Sombra - destroyed
Tirek - life sentence
Starlight - redeemed
Pony of Shadows - destroyed
Cozy Glow - Tirek's neighbor

Ever notice how of all the major villains, only two of them ever got redeemed? That's only 25%!

In how far do you consider Nightmare Moon as being "destroyed"? She wasn't a separate entity possessing or tempting Luna as it was probably the case with Stygian and the "darkness".

How do you know she wasn't a separate entity possessing or tempting Luna? I don't think the show ever stated that she wasn't.

>>36829442

Sorry, I'm only counting canon villains.

We saw her transforming herself just fine and she apologized and never mentioned any third party being involved. So there's that.

Also despite the darkness possessing Stygian to create the pony of shadows, he was still a willing participant now reformed.

Not to mention, while many have been reformed, it's hard to say that any of them have been redeemed. I could possibly make a case for Discord but it wouldn't be easy.

There's also that Twilight Sparkle keeps talking about Nightmare Moon as a separate entity, when speaking with Princess Luna. She might be just being polite, but Twilight does know what she's talking about. And there's the fact that Luna made the Tantabus, so she's fully capable of giving independant life to her own angst.

>>36829448

Yeah, Stygian got reformed. I just don't consider him the primary villain. Though it would've been awesome if he was.

When has Twilight ever known what she's talking about?

...when she was the only one in the Summer Sun Celebration who knew who Nightmare Moon was, because she researched the subject?

>>36829456
Funny thing, she somehow didn't even piece together that nightmare moon was celestia's sister. But if we're asking who would actually understand anything about nightmare moon, maybe Luna herself should be the one to listen to?

Luna is such an emo, she'd blame herself for stepping on a lego.

Well it would be her own fault if she did.

I think Trixie, who turned Ponyville into a snow globe of whipped slaves, has to be counted as a redeemed major villain. And what about Flim and Flam? They were one of the world-destroying forces in the S5 finale.

Trixie wasn't a villain because the amulet was making her evil. She didn't need redemption, just to take the amulet off.

And you cur. You knave. You scoundrel. How dare you suggest that Flim and Flam were one of the world-destroying forces, when their heroic industrial machinery was the only thing that could stand against the apple tree uprising!

Trixie was best as twilight's quasi rival IMO; I still prefer her in the comics to the show since they still kind of keep that a bit ("THE GREAT AND POWERFUL TWILY" bit from a reverse universe twilight and trixie getting into an argument with each other was the highlight of the last comic)

Nobody made Trixie skulk around in a concealing cloak through dark and disreputable neighborhoods to find the weird little shop where she paid a fortune for the amulet of power. That was the product of her own raging internal thirst for revenge.

And uh... did she learn her lesson? I mean honestly, can you not see her making a mistake like that again?

Yes, absolutely!
...She just forgot.
