Yes, my friends. Discord was back this week in our favourite show to bring us some chaos (you know in what sense I mean it). And I wanted to do something.

I present you this vector as a final tribute to who was the best villian of MLP:FiM. Discord relaxing in Fluttershy's sofa. Meanwhile, the cottage is rotating without control :iconscaredfluttershyplz:

I'd say lots of things about that episode, but I think the fandom is pretty agree with me that the only bad thing is the short amount of time we got, and its repercusion on the ending. But well, at least we have the chance to see him again...

Haha, I just finished watching it! How cute. But now that Discord is *slightly* good, the better bring back Sombra. I really want more of him on the screen.

Discord should not have reformed. the writers are putting the message above characterization and logic. Discord is a soulless monster. and they already killed off a villain before. you can't kill one villain and then say that the other ones are gonna be reformed.

I'm not sure turning Dischord into a statue again is considered killing him. So how do you kill Dichord.

us the Elements to vaporize him.

I wouldn't consider him "soulless". He was a spirit of chaos, yes, but his actions were driven through personal interest, rather than maniacal intentions. He wasn't necessarily "evil" like the other villains of the series but an entity that is the definition of chaos. Think "Q" from Star Trek. Not good or evil. Just one hell of a manipulative bastard that does things for kicks (but is above harming/imprisoning/turning people to stone).

His reformation was a bit rushed in this episode, but it also made sense. Fluttershy had the most impact on him in the episode they met (being practically a patient and immovable emotional rock against the chaotic and unstoppable force of Discord's temperament), and her kindness towards the creature that could hardly faze her with his words then effected him once again.

Think of his newly forged friendship with Fluttershy as another one of his selfish desires, except this time, in order to keep it, he has to sacrifice the thing he loves most... his "way"... at least "most of the time".

He's still Discord in the end, and chances are, he's still going to turn things upside down every now and then... Just like Q...

no. he was a monster. he mentally raped the ponies and Celestia and Fluttershy are morons to forgive him.

He "mentally raped" them in order to split up the elements of harmony (which, by the way, where his immediate threat which would seal him in his prison again. If they aren't together, then they won't work). He didn't exactly have any personal qualms with them (except maybe Celestia). They were just in his way.

As for Celestia, i don't know about you, but she clearly doesn't trust him. The only reason why she had him released is because she needs his magic.

Fluttershy didn't trust him either (even going so far to admit she knows EXACTLY that Discord was doing everything he can to bring her grief and drive a wedge between her and her friends), but was willing to put up with him and try to befriend him to pacify his excessively selfish nature.

no, Fluttershy should have stuck to her guns. Celestia clearly told the ponies last time that he was a horrible tyrant in the far past. just like King Sombra.

King Sombra was a monster that enslaved ponies to do his bidding. Discord just let anarchy reign supreme while he watched the chaos. Sombra was directly harming the ponies through utter malice, while Discord was merely having some fun, indirectly causing his "subjects" grief. He took a more active role against the Elements because, again, they were his direct threat and needed to be separated if he had any hope in keeping his wishes fulfilled. If Discord was truly a monster, he would have tried to imprison or outright "remove" the Element bearers (which Sombra did with Twilight when she was grabbing for the Crystal Heart). He didn't, cause that's not his nature.

no. he still enjoyed all the suffering he was causing.

He didn't enjoy the misery. He enjoyed the fighting, the unpredictability, the conflicted emotions and conflicted minds. He enjoyed the reactions of those who saw something new and grand and terrible and bizarre all at once. The misery and suffering was an after effect of the madness, but the chaotic show he got to see in the grand scheme out weighed and outshone the despair. Besides, Discord is oblivious to emotion, even his own (aside from joy and fury).
