-> ''"A lot of people think ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' sucks. I agree: here's why!"''
-->--'''Time Raider''', in the opening of his first video.

Time Raider is an Italian guy who first caught an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' while babysitting his little cousin. While he didn't like it, all the praise the series was getting convinced him to give it a chance.

He regretted it. A lot.

Frustrated by the bad quality of the videos who criticize the cartoon (who mostly went around screaming "It sucks" and offending the older people watching it) he decided to do his own videos to explain why he didn't like the show, using AlternativeCharacterInterpretation and FridgeLogic. Since then he made an introductory video, a review of the 15 worst episodes and several others...

... Aaaand then deleted them all after a quarrel with Youtube. Is unclear if he will repost them again.

!! This video series contains examples of
* AccentuateTheNegative: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]]: while he is maybe too hard on several cases, he admits when he finds something good.
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: He thinks Pinkie Pie is an annoying, unfunny douchebag, but he cracked a smile when she dumped on herself the bag of flour in "Baby Cakes" and for her antics during the brawl with the changelings.
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sister]] / ParentalNeglect: Twilight to Spike, depending as how you see their relationship.
* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: His video about the Mare-Do-Well episode: no review and no snarky comments, but an analysis on why that episode in particular is so hated.
* BerserkButton:
** '''Pinkie Pie'''. During the first video he is quietly describing the protagonists (even the ones he doesn't like such as Twilight and Rarity) until he gets to her.
--> "I cringe every time she appears! I suffer every time she talks! I want to stab a horse every time she opens her mouth! GO TO HELL!"
** Also, he doesn't take well when they maltreat [[PapaWolf Spike and the Cutie Mark Crusaders]].
* BrokenAesop: He said that Spike considering the ponies his family at the end of "Dragon Quest" doesn't work considering he is often left behind by them and the only times he is seen with some of the girls without Twilight is when he is working for them.
** He thinks the reason they made Spike wrote the letter to Princess Celestia at the end of "Owl Well That End Well" is because they were trying to avoid this: he thinks it would have made more sense for Twilight to be writing how you shouldn't make a old friend felt neglected because you have a new friend, but considering how often she leaves Spike alone in season 2 to go out with the girls...
* CutenessProximity: He gushes about the Cutie Mark Crusaders alot.
-->"Awww,they should put you on the "Get Well Done Soon" cards!"
** Mostly averted with Fluttershy: He gets what they were trying to do but he feels like it was overdone.
* DeadpanSnarker: Is he ever.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Can't believe Trixie's actions were bad enough to justify making her homeless. He wonders what would have happened had she hurt someone [[spoiler: she exploded]].
** Is disgusted by the town's reaction of finding that the CMC are Gummy Gums, especially by Big Mac, that caused him to stop being TheStoic "To become the douche!".
-->'''Big Mac/Time Raider''': Giving me a love potion was a harmless prank, but taking photos of my sister sleeping under a tree? You three are Equestria's Greatest Monsters!
-->'''Applebloom/Time Raider''': Didn't Applejack once put four ponies' lives in danger by...
-->'''Big Mac/Time Rider''': Equestria's Greatest Monsters!
* DoubleStandard: He tries to think what would happen if a little girl worked as the assistant of a man old enough to live on his own and didn't go to school. Cut to a scene of a policeman handcuffing a guy.
** He also complains that the ProtagonistCenteredMorality doesn't extend to Spike.
-->"If you are a woman you can brainwash, steal and destroy with no consequence! If you are a male the universe will hate you for trying to bake a cake!"
-->'''Twilight''':"Spike! How dare you take advantage of others to get gifts? You must be a woman to do that!"
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The show is of a guy who thinks MyLittlePony sucks and explains why.
* FlatCharacter: Applejack, as he notes after pointing out that Earth Ponies really get the short end of the stick next to unicorns and pegasi.
-->'''Time Raider''': "But hey, look at the bright side: they can make up for it with their personality! (A picture of Applejack and one of Pinkie Pie appear. Over AJ is written "Boring", over Pinkie is written "Annoying".) Aaaw, crap!"
** Shining Armor and Cadence: one of [[RememberTheNewGuy the]] [[MarySue several]] [[SpotlightStealingSquad reasons]] he doesn't give a crap about them.
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: Calls Rainbow Dash showing sorrow over Spike's absence in "Just For Sidekick" this, since it has never been a problem for them before.
-->'''Time Raider''': But, hey, maybe I'm wrong! Maybe they do miss him when he is left behind!
-->'''Twilight''': Spike, I'm back! Boy, how did we miss you at my birthday!
-->'''Spike''': Really?
-->'''Twilight''': Sure!
-->'''Spike''': So I can come the next time?
-->'''Twilight''': No!
* HypocriticalHumor: The fact that in "Over A Barrel" trying to sing a song to resolve a conflict is seen as childish, proving that this show isn't some silly nonsense... only to have a fight with pies to the face and the buffaloes making peace when they share pies with them.
-->'''Time Raider''': Oh yeah! [[SarcasmMode This is the mature stuff]]!
** He even plays the music of the "Benny Hill Show" over the attack of the buffaloes.
* KarmaHoudini: One of the main reason he dislikes the show so much: he is okay with protagonists screwing up sometimes, but that requires them to actually get punished for doing it. He compares it to shows like ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' where the characters actually face repercussions when they do something bad.
* MoodWhiplash: He started the review of "Dragon Quest" in a very deadpan tone, explaining that the episode in particular was the reason he decided to start criticizing the cartoon. Then for the rest of the review he acts normally, until the end, when he states that taking the story of a boy who must decide between two different but valid systems and changing it in a cliché, dumbed down black and white situation with bad guys on one side and good guys on the other proved to him that the show has nothing to offer to anyone older than 8.
* OncePerEpisode: He always concludes a review by starting to read or watch something better. Some of them are ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'' and the 2012 version of ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''.
* PetTheDog: He makes very clear he is not going to make fun of the PeripheryDemographic as his problem is with the show, not the people watching it.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Something that gets on his nerves really quickly because how often it happens. He broke down in his video about "The Last Roundup":
-->'''Time Raider:''' You are friends! Friends talk to each others! TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS!
** He lampshades it in the review of "Owl's Well That Ends Well":
-->'''Twilight:''' He is only here as my nocturnal assistant! I probably should have told you this when you two first meet, or should have listened to the girls when they suggested you were jealous, or should have talked to you when you were acting so out of character...("pause") I really suck at this, don't I?
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: One of the worst cases in a cartoon, according to him. He explains that Twilight, Applejack and Pinkie Pie should be in jail and that you could make the argument even for Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash.
* SelfDeprecation: After watching Twilight's dance in "Sweet And Elite":
-->"Mmm! It still has more dignity that what I did at my cousin's wedding!"
* ShoutOut
** He made some fake announcement videos in black and white about dragons in the style of the famous "MAN!" videos of the WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, wondering if they show them to young ponies in school. He showed them after Zecora said all dragons are naturally greedy and after Twilight admitted ponies know nothing about dragons because they are too scary and dangerous.
** When he name the five qualities of a good villain, he put images next to each one:
*** Intelligence: [[ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures Two]]
*** Humor: [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown Jack Spicer]]
*** Menace: [[Franchise/{{Alien}} The Queen of Aliens]] ("Now this is the queen of a group of giant bugs who scares me!")
*** Charm: SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom
*** Sympathy: SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}
* TakeThat: After calling Shining Armor and Cadence two blatant [[MarySue Mary Sues]], he prays to the authors to stop making fanfiction and let fans do them, while showing images of [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay Carlie Cooper]] and ''Film/DragonballEvolution''.
** One of his friends pointed out to him the Death Battle between Rainbow Dash and Starscream: he considers it absurd and insulting having Rainbow Dash destroying him, but that it is still better than when Sam did it.
* TheFaceless: We never see him in his videos.
* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: He made a video with the "Top 5 favorite scenes of ''My Little Pony''". He is especially surprised that they don't make Iron Will a generic bad guy.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives one to Twilight in the review of "Owl Well That End Well":
-->'''Time Raider''': And- I kid you not- she just leaves! [pause] You know, Twilight, I've been suspecting this for all the season, but now I have the confirmation... YOU ARE AN AWFUL GUARDIAN! I hate to break it to you, supergenius, but taking care of a kid requires more than yelling at him! Sure, it would be nice and easy, but it takes more: he is clearly behaving in an unusual way and is upset by something, and you are totally failing to see this! I'm not saying you are wrong being angry to him, since he made something wrong, but the next step is trying to understand why, not walk away with your head straight up like if you had a broom showed up your ass! I don't care how much of an antisocial BookWorm you are: you have known him for ''years''! Your friends notice it, including Rainbow Dash, that at this point is still fully in her jerky side! YOU FAIL AS A CARETAKER AND AS A FRIEND! So take your arrogant, bitchy, HolierThanThou attitude and CHOKE ON IT!
* WhatTheHellTownspeople: Twice: First when they let a sleeping Spike fall in cold water while laughing, and then when they all abuse the [=CMCs=] for what they wrote on the newspaper.
-->There is something really wrong when [[JerkAss Angel]] is the one having the most reasonable reaction!
* XMeetsY: He defined Pinkie as "The unholy combination of Mater from ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' and Rev from ''WesternAnimation/LoonaticsUnleashed!''".
