** Is Shining Armor an effective captain? Is the Royal Guards aforementioned ineptitude due to his poor leadership or just making him look bad? As a solider, are his constant defeats despite [[BarrierWarrior his powers]] ineptitude? Being caught off guard or up against those [[AntiMagic who can negate it]]? Or being only useful defensively? Why is he in command as opposed to using his power as a supporting role? AuthorityEqualsAsskicking? Is it the best place to use them? Does [[{{Nepotism}} his relationship to Twilight Sparkle or Princess Cadance have anything to do with it]]?

** With Big Mac turning into an ''alicorn princess'' (or prince? not sure how that works) in "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep", some have theorized that he may be a male-to-female {{transsexual}}, with others chalking it up to a mere power fantasy after "Brotherhooves Social" showed he feels inadequate that he's "just a farm hand while his sister saves the world."

* ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsLegendOfEverfree Legend of Everfree]]'' has Sunset Shimmer respond to Flash Sentry's unwanted [[DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest interest in human Twilight Sparkle]] by saying he should get over his feelings for Twilight. Was she being InnocentlyInsensitive to his feelings for pony Twilight Sparkle, which she previously supported? Did she know or assume pony Twilight has lost intreats or was too busy for romance, and never found the time or way to break it to him earlier? Was it motivated by Sunset's desire to be (back) together with Flash, be together [[LesYay with (either) Twilight]], or be together with Flash to keep him from an uninterested Twilight? Or was she to preoccupied at the moment to give a more though out response?

** Has her failure to acknowledge her crush on Flash Sentry since ''Rainbow Rocks'' due to losing intreats in him or being too preoccupied with her duties as Princess of Friendship and other happening so spare it thought?

** They seem to have little to no presence whatsoever anywhere except Canterlot, as characters like Ahuizotl and Starlight Glimmer rule over entire regions of Equestria until the Mane 6 happen to swing by, other places like Appleoosa are policed only by mobs of citizens, and even locales near Canterlot like Ponyville are attacked by monsters often enough for the ponies to be completely accustomed to it.
Are they too few to be there? Are they stationed in important locations and only respond to emergencies, which are apparently rare given how said locals seem to manage.

* Is Shining Armor an effective captain? Sure, he's immensely powerful and a useful asset, but that would make him deserving of being a special operative, not a captain of the guard, as captains of the guard are supposed to lead and train their troops. Despite deploying their troops in a state of readiness, having a professionally trained army, and having some warning as the changelings bashed against the shield, the Royal Guard lost the capital in about 10 minutes. There's also the possibility of {{Nepotism}}. Perhaps he was promoted to captain by Princess Celestia because of his relationship to Twilight Sparkle or Princess Cadance.
** The Season 6 two-part opening shows Shining Armor as very proficient in combat magic, but he is strictly a BarrierWarrior and able to [[AttackReflector deflect]] even alicorn magic using a reflective shield looking spell. Perhaps his magic is best suited against individuals or concentrated in one small area, but its effectiveness is drastically reduced if spread over a wider area. In addition, Shining Armor may be an effective leader under normal circumstances and completely unrelated to how well he can fight on his own, and/or he might play a support role in battles, with his troops doing the attacking while he protects them.
* For that matter, exactly how useful is the Royal Guard to begin with? They seem to have little to no presence whatsoever anywhere except Canterlot, as characters like Ahuizotl and Starlight Glimmer rule over entire regions of Equestria until the Mane 6 happen to swing by, other places like Appleoosa are policed only by mobs of citizens, and even locales near Canterlot like Ponyville are attacked by monsters often enough for the ponies to be completely accustomed to it. All the times they ''have'' tried to act they've repeatedly and consistently failed at everything they've ever set out to do, from defending Canterlot to finding a single lost pet. While Shining Armor definitely doesn't seem to be a stellar captain, a ''lot'' of blame has to fall on Equestria's [[MilitariesAreUseless clearly subpar military]].

to:

* Exactly how useful is the Royal Guard and Wonderbolts? Are they really as useless [[MilitariesAreUseless as their constant failures suggests]]? If so, why do they bother having them? Or do we only see them when they fail [[TheoryOfNarrativeCausality so the main characters save the day]]. Is it a result of [[WeHaveBecomeComplacent complacency]] due to [[PhysicalGod the Princesses]] being the ones who normally [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking take care of things]] and anything [[TheWorfEffect able to threaten them]] beyond what anyone else could be expected to do any better against?
** Are the Royal Guard kept around due to tradition? To project authority? Because the Princesses [[FantasticNuke powers would risk collateral damage]]? Or is to carry out more mundane responsibilities? And their failure in those tasks (like finding a lost pet) due to ineptitude or being outside their training?
** There's lots of [[MildlyMilitary ambiguity if the Wonderbolts are military]], or if they've evolved from those origins to just be stunt flyers who now lack the skills or training to be any more useful.

** Do the Changelings need to [[EmotionEater feed on love]] to survive, or is it merely a luxury that they use to become stronger? Are they innocent [[NonMaliciousMonster non-malicious mooks]] who can't help that their food source is draining the life out of ponies (often combined with the "their queen is pure evil" interpretation for extra [[TheWoobie Woobie]] points), or are they as aware as their queen and just don't care? An episode focusing on a turncoat changeling seems to suggest that they do indeed need to feed on love to survive, and their urge to feed on love is largely reflexive, and has to be actively suppressed. It also shows that most Changelings are born evil (at least to some extent). How common good Changelings are, and whether they can feed on alternative food sources at all, is still up in the air.
