* LaserGuidedKarma: Arguably. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon both went out of their way to torment Nyx, kicked her while she was down from it all, and even tried to send her to her death by tricking her into exploring the Everfree Forest. When confronted by Twilight about the latter, they obnoxiously feigned ignorance until they were threatened into confessing. When Nyx finally became Nightmare Moon, she publicly credits them both as half of the reason for her sudden return, causing them to be scorned and hated by all of Ponyville. In Nyx's defense, their cruel prank DID cause her to discover a shocking hint of her true origins.
