Unicorns have zero problems, so for that race its a none issue, given they pretty much have hit the jackpot for racials when it comes to everyday life (no, seriously, telekinesis is better than anything even humans have for interacting with their world).

pegasi could concievably use their wings given their incredible dexterity, though that would require pretty strong wings.

Earth ponies could concievably use their tails; Given how much we've seen Earth ponies use their tails for, its difficult, but possible, for them to grip and throw the balls with their tails.
The CMC are probably just too little for the sport.

You know, every time I have to deal with the S4 finale's deliberate abandonment of MLP's core friendship themes for the sake of that one-minute Twilight/Tirek fight, I'm constantly suggesting that Twilight's friends should be around the same power levels as Twilight herself, so that they could be equally powerful and resourceful to each other in defeating Tirek. It was why we were eventually given the Rainbow Power, which may be a Deus Ex Machina compared to the alicorn magic, but at least helped the finale return to its friendship-based roots after that dumb-ass DBZ fight.

But then I thought about something: Friendship and teamwork do not involve everyone on the same team increasing their own powers individually, so that they could be equally powerful. Instead, it's more like that the heroes on a team are unable to overcome their limits individually, but when they synchronize their powers, that's when they can overcome their limits.

It's why we had soul-synchronization in Soul Eater. The weapon-meisters and their weapons cannot overcome their personal limits alone, so they have to synchronize their own soul wavelengths with at least two other weapon-meisters and their weapons to overcome those limitations. To bad the anime version's finale didn't reflect it though; Maka alone had to launch a simple, powerless punch at Asura that somehow defeated him, while her teammates were put out of commission until the fight ended.

And, it was why we had a humanity-powered Spirit Bomb in DBZ. Goku and Vegeta's Super Saiyan powers alone, even when fused to form Vegito/Vegirot, were not sufficient enough to defeat Kid Buu. So, they had Namek resurrect Earth and humanity, so that the latter could power up Goku's Spirit Bomb to defeat the villain. Even Hercule contributed, namely by using his clout to trick humanity into powering up Goku's Spirit Bomb. Sure, the Spirit Bomb finale will always be upstaged by Gotenks and Vegito even to this day, and in some regard the Super Saiya

Stop making these threads.
It's been discussed to death, nobody cares.

Make another one about the same topic and you'll be banned from /pony/.

I also suggest you resist the urge to be a smartass and make a thread about a similar topic or attempt to derail a thread into your obsession.
Just avoid this topic on /pony/ entirely, everybody is sick of it.

I just watched Rainbow Falls again, and took 43 screencaps of images I found funny or good for reaction pictures in places like ponychan. While looking some comments left to my uploaded images, I noticed something strange. I wanted to make sure it's not just accident, so I looked through all my uploaded images, and guess what:

Out of all 43 images, only 12 have downvotes (when I'm making this post): two images have 1 downvote, one have 3 and rest of them have 2 downvotes. That's not the interesting/strange part, but this is: All those images were Twilight pictures. Not only all those 12 Twilight pictures had downvotes, but I uploaded only those 12 Twilight pictures from the episode, and not a single non-Twilight picture were downvoted.

So my question is this: Are there really bronies who goes downvoting Twilight pictures just because it's Twilight picture? And why so? Or is this just some amazing statistical fluke?

PS: Even in my uploads from Rarity Takes Manehattan, all Twilight images have those 1-3 downvotes.

perhaps I should rephrase that: what I mean is that Sombra's backstory lends itself far more to fanart than Tirek's, and even sombra has a better backstory for fanart than Sombra.

Sombra's backstory is intertwined with the crystal empire: as such, there's lots of fanart that can be made of that dealing him him, his troops, and his kingdom. Even if the full mythos of the empire isn't something he has to pull on, he still has the Empire as something of a supporting element for fan art.
He didn't just attack the Crystal empire, he ruled it, allowing him to pull from that for ideas and fanon.

As such, He has something that lends itself to Fanon and fanart far more than if he had just attacked the empire.
I'm arguing here for the strength of someone for fanart and fanon.

Yeah, I talked about that, but again, it wasn't really that well-explored.

It'd be interesting if they ever re-release the two-parter as one long feature, and added a stinger where Scorpan appears and tries to convert Tirek to the side of good.

It's honestly kind of weird having them play up Donnie and Casey as friends lately given the whole "friends who fight with each other" angle of Casey and Raph hasn't been touched on much lately :/

Dee actually watched it, it's... Dee is unsure how to think of it, it's bad, but the creators knew it was bad, and Grumpy Cat constantly lampoons the movie, asks the viewers why the hell they're still watching it, and even gets a pretty good cheapshot in at Lifetime near the end. It's that special sort of bad that the Nicholas Cage movies that aren't outright good usually are where even though you know it sucks it's still kind of funny to watch.

They're kind of changing some of the familiar dynamics up. Like Raph instead has his interactions with Spike/Slash. And Mikey has Leatherhead instead of Donnie. And there's more interaction between Splinter and Karai.

Honestly, it makes Human twilight seem terribly obtuse that she hasn't heard about the goings ons there given how utterly transparent the mane six have been with turning into pony girls around town.
I KNOW RIGHT? The fact that none of this is a secret in the slightest and everyone at the school seems to accept it totally defies the usual tropes, and yet human Twilight goes right back to those tropes (in spectacular fashion).

Your using a false Dichotomy here though, in that you seem to be assuming "Either smeagol OR deagol was at fault" and disregarding the fact that it is in fact a THIRD party (the ring) who is at fault.

Same situation, the Book is mainly at fault. THAT BEING SAID, spike is far more at fault here than in that situation, since the book came with a warning and was locked up, while the Ring had no such safety precautions or warnings.

So its been a little over four years since FiM first aired, and the fact that people still watch is a testament to its quality. Or maybe instead the fans.

So why do you still watch? Is it just something to do? Do you like it as much as you used to?
Do you think it has progressed or regressed quality-wise, and if so how?
