!! Starlight Glimmer
* [[WellIntentionedExtremist Starlight Glimmer]] becomes very pitiable in [[spoiler:[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 the season five finale]] after her FreudianExcuse revealed that her only best friend gained a cutie mark and became worried that cutie marks destroys friendships. Her motivation becomes more clear as she realizes the error of her ways.]]
** And then again in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E6NoSecondPrances No Second Prances]] where she doubts Twilight's faith in her to find a good friend after it's revealed Trixie seems to be the only pony who understands her, since no other pony outside of the mane six and Spike [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer want to be her friend]]. Even if you dislike her, it's hard to avoid becoming sad over Starlight running away crying when she realizes Twilight's been following her and seemingly judging her choices. (She wasn't, but still) And she's also a bit of a klutz in the episode accidentally splattering Mrs. Cake with a cake she quickly created and making Big Mac talk using a spell which angered Applejack.

** And again, when she returns in ''No Second Prances'' Trixie has genuinely reformed and makes a friend in Starlight Glimmer which is revealed to be her first friend. That's right, the reason Trixie was so arrogant and conceited in her first two appearances wasn't just because of Boast Busters, but because nobody would be her friend. It's pretty sad when Trixie loses her assistant and chooses to do a dangerous stunt to get some adoration. [[FridgeHorror Imagine]] what would happen if Starlight didn't step in to help with the manticore stunt and Trixie ended up being devoured by a [[MixAndMatchCritters manticore]]...

** Unsurprisingly, it is also suggested that she feels lonely. She was visibly and audibly crushed when she finally got to spend time with another pony at a picnic only to have her leave unannounced before the food was even served. As much as she loves animals, not even they are a fulfilling substitute for friends of the same species.

** Various scenes seen from Fluttershy's point of view show that her stress distorts innocent or even positive reactions towards her into a huge crowd cruelly mocking her. She even seems to feel this way about her friends. The musical number in "Bats!" portrays a disagreement between her and the remane-ing five+Spike. It's the only disagreement we see from Fluttershy's point of view and we perceive Spike and the remane-ing five act intimidating towards her, circling around her menacingly and angrily looking down their noses at her at the end as she recoils in fear. When it's not her point of view, they normally speak to her as though she was on the verge of jumping off a building (disregarding Rainbow Dash's impatience and Pinkie's InnocentlyInsensitive moments).

** In "Twilight's Kingdom", [[spoiler: while everyone else in the Mane 6 lashes out at Discord after he betrays them, Fluttershy is crying because she's the only one who believed in him and didn't see the betrayal coming. This actually makes Discord reconsider his FaceHeelTurn, and after Tirek turns the tables on him he feels bad about how he'd treated her in that episode.]]z

*** There are [[FridgeHorror worse implications]] on this, that just twists the knife deeper. Her love story with King Sombra (the good one) ended tragically, as said above. However, given her extremely long lifespan, she probably had more than one love story that ended this way, or worse. And the ones that '''do''' end happily take on a turn for the worse as she outlives all of them. Her smile suddenly takes on a new, unsettlingly tragic turn considering all of this. This isn't counting the fandom, who tends to favor her EnsembleDarkhorse sister and/or give her a RonTheDeathEater treatment. Ouch, that hurts.
