There’s been mention here and there of alicorns that it doesn’t make much sense for the royal sisters, or for that matter Cadance, to be the cause of. For instance, there is the alicorn princess from the "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E17HeartsAndHoovesDay Hearts and Hooves Day]]" story (although, granted, there is no evidence for or against that being a real historical account as opposed to just a fable), as well as the single alicorn depicted in the temple in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E14StrangerThanFanFiction Stranger than Fan Fiction]]". Although this last one does not necessarily depict an actual individual, it does require the knowledge of the at least potential existence of alicorns, as well as their status as special or remarkable beings, in a setting clearly presented as ancient and foreign. It really doesn’t make sense for this depiction to be inspired by Luna and/or Celestia, especially since a lot of emphasis is put on the fact that the alicorn is alone (versus the unicorns, earth ponies and pegasi in the same room, which came in pairs), which clashes with the strong duality theme that follows the royal sisters everywhere. Further, if one considers the comics canon, the backstory of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendsForeverIssue32 the thirty-second issue]] ''Friends Forever'' features Queen Parabola, an aileron zebra who is explicitly stated to have ruled before the founding of Equestria.\\

* Why doesn't natural evolution make sense, and why can't fusion work four times consecutively?

** It's fairly clear that the Royal Guards are actual ponies -- Shining Armor is their leader, there were guards with brown and green coats in "Rarity Investigates", we meet a retired guard in "A Flurry of Emotions" and they react to being talked to like actual sapient beings. Their uniform appearance is probably just fur dye and standardized armor. Going by that, it becomes a bit unlikely that Luna's guards aren't also actual ponies.

** Here's the thing. You are correct about Earth horses, but Equestrians are not horses. Equestria is not Earth. It's a different world where evolution happened differently, mostly because of the presence of magic. Now, they do have some equine characteristics. You could go so far as to call them equinoid. But they are not horses, any more than Vulcans or Klingons are humans (even though both are humanoid).

The CORRECT term for a half-unicorn half-pegasus would either be called a Unisus or a Pegacorn. Dependind on which more species you are of. (kind of liked mixed races. Say, if your mother were Jewish and your farther was black. If your farther had more family memebers, you would technically be called a black-person. However, if your MOTHER had more family members than your FARTHER, you would be more Jewish than black.)

types.
* This makes no biological sense. Everyone has half of the genetic heritage of their mother and half of their father's -- the amount of siblings or cousins or what have you that your parents did or did not have is irrelevant. Also, as stated, this fails to account for the alicorns also being part earth pony.

Pegasi have wing claspers, and erectile tissue in the wing. Flight is achieved by shaking a magical organ, which makes it lighter. Cloud walking is achieved by taking magical made in another lobe of the flight organ. Maybe they have a 3 chambered heart.

[[WMG: G3 pegasi existed, but..]]
They were wiped out by G4 pegasi. Their butterflies probably became naturally aggresive to pegasi. Also, their wings would probably be magic-powered tools

[[WMG: Earth pony magic comes from [[PlantPerson unique organnelles]]]]
It is like this to prevent magic clotting the blood

Because natural evolution doesn't make sense, and random fusion can't work FOUR times in a row PERFECTLY
