YMMV / Harmony Theory

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: What was Blaze doing holding a bunch of bowls when an entire town was being destroyed?
  • Funny Moment: Blaze is made of these.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • It's hard to pin-point exactly when Cash crossed the line, but a good candidate is when he ordered the massacre of a whole town, including driving the communication crystal operator to commit suicide and setting the school on fire, while exposing Column, to pin the blame on a Changling attack, all to cover his own escape.
    • Charisma as well, for willingly going along with this and slaughters a whole crowd of ponies.
      • One comment even mentioned this trope by name.
  • Woobie: Many.
    • Rainbow Dash. She wakes up stranded in a Crapsack World, with none of her friends and is thrown into all the hell the future has to offer.
      • When Rarity and Applejack started waking up, they had to face the same problems, but with one sad difference: Their families are gone.
    • Star Fall: Being the first Pegasus in modern Equestria, with magic talents, has caused her to be a political pawn in the kingdom for a large portion of her life. Starting with her being taken from her parents (Though at least, by a future parental substitute.) and later, leading to her being forced into an Arranged Marriage by the king, hoping she could produce an Alicorn offspring. Later, she's forced to banish her own parents, so they can't be used to get to her, while they think she's simply disowning them. Then, it's revealed that her mentor/Parental Substitute was a traitor.
    • Column: As a Changeling, he naturally relies on deception to achieve his goals. But, after he starts to become attached to the mother of the soldier he's impersonating and finds a Morality Pet in Trail Blazer, he has a huge identity crisis and questions what it means to be part of his species.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Charisma, After it's revealed that her talent is constantly telling her to kill literally everyone she comes in contact with, destroying any hope she may have ever had about having a normal life and relationship. It's also revealed that she used to have a happy normal life, with loving parents before her Glyph showed up, revealing that she was a born killer. Even worse, it's implied that something may have drove her into killing her parents.
