** Tropers/{{Ferigeras}}: Now don't get me wrong, as a whole I really liked this finale. I liked the timelines that were showcased (even if they were blatant and annoying FanficFuel), all the cameos of older villains (Although I would have really loved to see more of Tirek) and I kinda liked the ending. But it has one critical moment I really despise, and something that in retrospect makes some of the earlier episodes hard to watch. What I consider to be this show's [[DethroningMomentOfSuck Dethroning Moment]] is how Rainbow Dash failing to perform her first Sonic Rainboom was this critical to this plot, and what would have happened to Equestria as an effect. Now I do like the fact that they touched on an early episode the way they did, but what really bothered me was the fact that it's this SINGLE event that the ''entirety of Equestria'' somehow depended on... I just can't get behind that. Now the finale did attempt to show how [[AnAesop even the most minor actions can have the biggest changes]], but this was simply exaggerating it in the worst way possible. I mean sure, back in "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" they did show how this event linked the Mane 6 together, but for that friendship to mean everything for the fate of Equestria as a whole is almost incomprehensible. Like seriously, according to this finale, if the Manes 6 weren't... the Mane 6, all those villains we have seen would have succeeded and all of Equestria would have been devastated in one way or another, which can easily be qualified as the single stupidest case of EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce ever. And let's not forget how it basically implies that the Mane 6 in general are the ''only'' things capable of keeping Equestria peaceful. If that was the case, how the hell did Equestria even last this long under such circumstances?

** Cdv4: Warning, contravercial opinion coming up! oh boy, this one is absolute garbage. I have never seen a full episode of this show (without someone practically strapping me to a chair and making me watch this show) but I have heard of this episode and how it is downright offensive (warning, massive rant incoming!) all of this is because of 12 words; "this all could've been avoided if you had just talked to me". In the context of this plot, this means that any and all bullying situations end instantly if you talk to an adult. Question writers, did you ever think of the times when adults did not do anything to help out the situation, or worse, made the situation worse by not believing you, or being on the bully's side. Sometimes letting an adult know about bullying can actually sometimes make things worse for you if you don't do anything except trying to let adults handle this situation. I honestly can't give this show too much hate for this though, some may say, and that no show has ever done bullying perfectly right, But this is the worst examples of bullying as a topic in a show I've ever seen. For me, this is one topic that should not be touched by most shows, unless they can do other heavy topics well. Seeing this page, I don't think this show was quite ready to pull this off. The worst part for me though is how it treats standing up to a bully makes you a bully. This is so not true that it is absolutely insane to the point that I question is the writers have ever been in or seen a real bullying situation. In some cases, yes, it does make things worse, but showing a bully that you are not afraid of them is a brave thing to do. Doing this can make some bullies see that you aren't worth the effort to bully and move on to (as hard as it is for me to say this) another victim. Now for the big question that you all may be wondering; what is the perfect solution to ending bullying? I personally think that there is no two bullying situations that are alike, and no 2 answers are perfect either. While I do agree that letting an adult know about the bullying situation can be an important step, it is not the perfect answer for any situation. If the writers got into a bullying situation, they must have just told an adult and everything was perfect for them. Spoiler alert writers, that is not how every bullying situation will end! Thanks for sitting through this rant and f-ck that line.

** TheCastawayPariah: The way this episode treated Pinkie is disgusting. Trixie doesn't return her mouth even though she restored everyone else and no one protests this, and on top of that the episode acts like everything's okay at the end even though Pinkie STILL hasn't been cured. It spat in the face of both Pinkie and what the show is supposed to be about. Even though Pinkie helped get her sorry flank back into Ponyville, Twilight doesn't care enough to put her mouth back on at the earliest opportunity. [[SarcasmMode Hooray for the magic of friendship!]] The fact that Trixie comes back again later on in the show and is portrayed sympathetically doesn't help either and completely put me off from watching the show any longer. I would very much like to see some interaction between Trixie and Pinkie. And better yet, maybe even an episode where Pinkie pays Trixie back in a similar way with her fourth wall-breaking powers. Seriously, you cannot have it that a character's problem is casually swept under the rug and then still pretend that this show promotes good messages about friendship. So good-fucking-bye, MLP. I am officially done with you. Time to go watch [[GravityFalls other]] [[StevenUniverse cartoons]] that had some actual thought put into them. Hope the cheap fourth wall gag was worth it, you shitty hack writers.

** [=SenorCornholio=]: Step right up, ladies and gentlemen; I present to you what I can only describe as the absolute worst episode of the entire show from my perspective! Behold, a minimalistic plot with barely any real substance to it! Take "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E25PartyOfOne Party of One]]", make it so the fear Pinkie had was actually true, and you got yourself a recipe for disaster already! Oh, but that isn't even the worst of it, folks; Rainbow Dash is probably at the absolute bottom of her characterization thus far! If you thought "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E15TheCartBeforeThePonies The Cart Before the Ponies]]" was ''WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}'' worthy, you ain't seen nothin' until you laid your eyes on this utter travesty! We got ourselves a mare who hates pies so much that she throws them away at a moment's notice without even bothering to try one. I get she didn't wanna hurt Pinkie's feelings, but it'd have just been easier for her to try one and make an opinion first chance she got. Pinkie doesn't get off that easily either; all this time, she's been completely oblivious to the fact that Rainbow Dash has been acting sketchy around Pinkie's pies for so many years until just recently. This is the same mare that learned that [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E11PartyPooped Princess Twilight Sparkle is afraid of quesadillas before anypony else did]], people. Bottom line, we got an episode that even most of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 G3]] would laugh at; it's nonsensical, childish, ruins two good characters for the price of one, and was the low point of what could be considered an overall divisive season.

As for Coco...well, she didn't do anything wrong really, it's the way the writers are treating her. Coco was shown to be an extremely competent designer in Rarity Takes Manehattan--her cutie mark is a fancy hat for god's sake--so where the hell did this "disco ball" come from? It's giving a lovable and extremely popular character the IdiotBall for the sake of a gag, and it just comes off as disrespectful. (In fact, between the ridiculous dress design and her cold in The Saddle Row Review, it's hard not to believe one or more of the writers have a personal vendetta against the character for some reason). Come on, guys, you know how popular Coco is. You should have known this would be a jerk move.\\

The salt meets the wound when you realize that this is the only time Coco is so much as mentioned in the entirety of Season 7. Nope, no physical appearances at all. That Rarity episode you're hoping for where she'll show up and melt your heart again? Not happening. You Coco fans are getting a passing mention so she can make a fool of herself and the sweet farm girl can mock her in an uncharacteristically mean way, and dammit, you're gonna like it. Oh, but don't worry--she gets a very few blink-and-you'll-miss-them, voiceless cameos in the movie! That makes up for everything, right? ...r-right?

* [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E17DaringDone Daring Done?]]
** [=SenorCornholio=]: I never thought I'd change my entry so soon, but I simply can't wait to talk about this any longer. I know the episode has a few days to properly air overseas, but this episode has a moment that, I feel, is even ''worse'' than the above episode in its entirety. ''Daring Done?'' itself started off great, what with introducing Somnambula (the town and the hero), deconstructing and attempting to reconstruct Daring Do's adventures, and giving Dr. Caballeron a bit more character and painting him as a MagnificentBastard. However, the third act suffers from a massive EndingAversion that makes me really question if G.M. Berrow actually wrote this part of the episode, complete with Caballeron holding the VillainBall the entire rest of the way. What killed it for me was the following scene: [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Rainbow Dash. Got. Foalnapped!]] I get that Caballeron probably broke her spirit, but why did this have to happen in such a haphazard way? I understand ''someone'' had to be in danger for the climax to work, but this is Rainbow "Danger" Dash! It's one thing to take her flaws and not only heighten them, but briefly forget about her more noble qualities. It's quite another, however, to completely forget what she's all about. This is the mare that can perform a Sonic Rainboom near effortlessly. This is the pony that can outfly most ponies without breaking a sweat. This is a pony that has, time and time again, proven that she won't go down without a fight. She's been scared before, but we know for a fact that when danger strikes, she'll be there to combat it. And what does she do? She just sits there and lets Caballeron's minions take hold of her. I'm sorry, I have to stress again: [[BigWhat what?!]] These guys shouldn't even be able to lay a hoof on her, and yet here Rainbow is, just getting captured without any fanfare! In fact, this whole issue could have been avoided, had it been, say, Pinkie Pie that was captured instead; she could have thought they were leading her somewhere fun, and Daring and Rainbow could have teamed up to save her without their flight. But since Rainbow Dash, who would normally have held her own against some simple {{Mook}}s, ends up in this situation without any explanation of how she couldn't just ''fly away'', then it stands as probably one of the worst examples of {{Chickification}} since ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM''.

* [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS7E9HonestApple Honest Apple]]
** Midna: The part where Applejack tears into Coco (or, um, "Miss") Pommel's dress is just horrendous and makes both parties look bad. In Applejack's case, it's turning an otherwise likeable (if in my opinion bland) character into a dick for the sake of laughs. Element of Honesty or no, there's being frank and then there's mocking someone behind their back, and AJ's not quite a genius but she's at least smart enough to know which of the two this is. Let's not forget that Applejack has actually met Coco before, gotten to know her, and grown to like her. She'd be damn well aware that a sensitive girl like her would absolutely not appreciate her design being trashed like that.\\

Coco was shown to be an extremely competent designer in Rarity Takes Manehattan--her cutie mark is a fancy hat for god's sake--so where the hell did this "disco ball" come from? It's giving a lovable and extremely popular character the IdiotBall for the sake of a gag, and it just comes off as disrespectful. (In fact, between the ridiculous dress design and her cold in The Saddle Row Review, it's hard not to believe one or more of the writers have a personal vendetta against the character for some reason). Come on, guys, you know how popular Coco is. You should have known this would be a jerk move.\\

The salt meets the wound when you realize that this is the only time Coco is so much as mentioned in the entirety of Season 7. Nope, no physical appearances at all. That Rarity episode you're hoping for where she'll show up and melt your heart again? Not happening. You Coco fans are getting a passing mention so she can make a fool of herself and the sweet farm girl can mock her in an uncharacteristically mean way, and dammit, you're gonna like it. Oh, but don't worry--she gets a very few blink-and-you'll-miss-them, voiceless cameos in the movie! That makes up for everything, right? ...r-right?
