The Derpy controversy

All the wasted potential in Dragon Quest. We could have learned about things like Dragon Culture and where exactly Spike's egg came from, but nope, instead we meet 6 obnoxious teenage dragons who are bad enough for Spike to basiclly declare that all other dragons are bad too. Nice job, writers. *Sarcasm*

That people complain about this show when they don't have to watch it.

The Mare Do Well episode. Regardless of which side you think was right (Rainbow Dash or the remaneing 5), the episode was very poorly handled, ponyvile somehow became the worst place to live in with a ton of disasters occuring, and like Dragon Quest it wasted what could have been a cool idea.

"Ponyville Confidental"...hmm, where to start? The Cutie Mark Crusaders getting shunned by the whole town, even the Mane 6 (except Rarity, maybe), the accidental aesops, the hypocrisy of the citizens of Ponyville, Diamond Tiara only getting a light punishment for blackmailing the CMC? I can see why this episode is controversial.

Diamond Tiara's (and Silver Spoon) bullying towards the I the only one who notices that its getting worse each season?

The fact that the Cutie Mark Crusaders are completely unaware of their talents.


The Fan Dumb has gotten to such low levels that it makes the Sonic Fan Dumb look sane.

Equestria Girl Drama.

How the Heel–Face Turn of Discord played out. It was rather predictable, and the whole one word 'friend' being enough to turn Discord good was cliche.

Fans taking episodes too damn seriously. This is why Mare do well is so UNFAIRLY hated


The writers seem to have no idea what to do with Applejack, to the point where the character suffers in comparison to the others. Each of the Mane Six tends to get one episode to fail and learn a lesson, and another to show off their abilities while resolving a problem. In Applejack's case though, it seems as if she gets one episode to fail and learn a lesson, and an episode where the group has a victory or gets her out of a jam.




The fact that the show is plastered everywhere you go, Not just the internet: Even in public you're going to find it everywhere.

I watched the show and honestly: I had more fun watching Johnny Test. The voice acting just made Mega Man 8's sound professional and the animation really isn't anything to write home about. It just bored me, but what drives me to hate it are the Fan Boys: They make the Sonic Fandom look sane.

Bronies taking the characters way too seriously, which is the reason why Princess Celestia, Shining Armor, and The Mane 6 (save for Twilight) are unfairly demonized for the infamous "Canterlot Wedding" incident. Seriously, get over it.

The whole fandom is an unmitigated train wreck.

The Cutie Mark Crusaders. Or more specificlly, the fact that they all have the same personality when they arn't interacting with the mane 6
