- Complete Monster: Ruinate was the Token Evil Teammate of the Sentiox, and created Equestria as a Crapsack World just to make those living in it suffer. When the other Sentiox healed his world, he went on a rampage, destroying the planets they created and killing the other Sentiox. Originally imprisoned in another dimension for his crimes, after his escape, he plans to return Equestria to its former state before destroying all the other planets in the universe. Ruinate kidnaps the Mane Six (sans Twilight) and experiments on them to make himself immune to the Elements Of Harmony, and sends a brainwashed Spike to try and kill Twilight.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: In this story, which began during Season 3, the Mane Six get Henshin Hero forms via the Elements of Harmony. Flashforward to the Season 4 finale, and they get something similar in canon via the Rainbow Power that replaces the Elements.
- Moral Event Horizon: Looking at the above, you know Ruinate crossed it a long time ago. However, within the time frame of the story, his MEH is definitely rendering Twilight an Empty Shell and then mocking the other Mane Six about it.
YMMV / A Future of Friendship, a History of Hate
