This character picks on the short girl for being short. He'll ask a woman for her age. He'll bug the [[AmbiguouslyGay flamboyant guy about his sexuality]]. And the worst part is, he doesn't realize what he's doing is rather painful for the person on the receiving end of the criticism. In the worst cases, [[DiggingYourselfDeeper he might not stop at one insult]] and even continue until someone [[MegatonPunch forces him to stop]], or the other person runs away crying. (His reaction to this is probably: "Huh? What did I do?")

What separates him from the {{Jerkass}} is that this person is actually a good guy - he's just clueless to things that people might generally be sensitive to. To him, it was just a [[JustJokingJustification fun joke]] or an [[BrutalHonesty honest assessment]] - no offense intended. When others bring up the fact that what he's saying is hurting other people's feelings, he tries to change.

*** As a villain, she really did have good intentions [[VillainHasAPoint and a point]] taking talents away from other ponies, as differences do create problems between friends, except she was a {{Hypocrite}} who still held onto her own talent.
*** After turning good and graduating to SixthRanger, Starlight Glimmer still uses her magical talent to solve problems, only to not only fail to fix things, but actually make things ''worse''. In ''No Second Prances'', Starlight uses her magic to create a cake, except it ticks off the non-magical Mrs. Cake, who believes Starlight is trying to put her out of business.

** Starlight Glimmer is this trope personified in both [[BigBad villainous]] and [[HeelFaceTurn heroic]] versions, as everything she has done in the series to date was based around having good intentions but messing up ''badly''.

Starlight later ends up scaring away [[TheQuietOne Big Macintosh]] by casting [[MotorMouth a talking spell]] on him so she can talk to him more. Starlight's insensitivity comes to the forefront in ''Every Little Thing She Does'', where she once again uses magic, a mind control spell in particular on her Mane Five friends in order to her friendship lessons done more efficiently. Unsurprisingly, it spectacularly fails (or [[GoneHorriblyRight worked too well]] depending on how you look at it), and the Mane Six are ''furious'' with her afterwards.

** Mikkel occasionally falls into this as well, since he's a FlatEarthAtheist and shares a language with one of the crew's mages, causing him to dismiss concerns that are completely legitimate from the other's point of view.
