Grumpy Old Supervillains by BerryPAWNCH Grumpy Old Supervillains by BerryPAWNCH
Huzzah!  Despite recent computer problems, I fought valiantly and lost many brave pixels along the way, but managed to complete something for the newest ep on time...-ish.  This one is based off the movie "Grumpy Old Men," a delightful comedy I was lucky to catch in theaters waaaaaaaayyyyy back in the day.

What a way to have a close out to a neat season.  It was nice to see an episode (a season finale two parter, no less) dedicated to the "We Got Our Asses Kicked by Twilight and Friends" club. :headbang:  It was entertaining to see their wildly different personalities interact with and play off each other, and ultimately save the day.  I greatly enjoyed the misadventures of the Great and Powerful Ego, the Troll of Chaos, Unsurelight Glimmer, and that adorkable changeling Thorax.

I dedicate this crossover to the always amusing bickering and bantering group dynamic of these very unlikely heroes (minus Chryssie).  Keep rocking on yall.

...Except Trixie and Chrysalis.  I'm still not sure I could stand being in the same room as either of them for more than ten seconds. :P

Thanks a lot Snake!  I've been experimenting with trying to add lengthier, more "mature" proportions to my grown up ponies as opposed to the chibi style I've been doing, so I'm glad you like this new look.

Thorax's little buggie cheeks are just begging for a pinch, they are yus they are.  :3

Trixie is so stuck up and self-superior that I couldn't resist not to pinch her chubby cheeks.  And the whining and complaining?  I'll be giving her chubs so much squeezies for hours on end!

As for Chrissie?

Nothing like a big spray can of Raid couldn't fix

BerryPAWNCH Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2016
Weird that her arrogance seems charming at times, I think it's her cute pony appearance that helps balance it all out maybe XD

And then there's Chryssie...not sure how effective Raid would be but that love beam seemed pretty effective.

Chris107 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2016
It's not so much the arrogance, but the fact that Trixie takes herself far too seriously, and therefore she is ripe for being pinched and squeezed mercilessly.

I've haven't watching mlp for a while now, so I'm a bit out on what's been happening as of late.  But, with Chrissie, if not a can of Raid, then definitely one of those electric tennis rackets that has been hooked up to a main power supply

Well, I haven't seen said movie. But it's a really interesting piece none the less! I honestly didn't like this season finale at all, which makes me sad considering they brought Chrysalis back. Her being on par with my favorite villain next to Nightmare Moon. 
Regardless, love the business themed Chrysalis! Awesome job as always Berry.

Thanks very much Kurokasumi :D

It was a pretty charming movie, I would recommend it for a good watch.  You might hate the IRS after watching it (as if no one hates them already LOL).

Anything you didn't like about it in particular?  Personally, it left me with a very happily amused feeling after seeing it and I always judge an ep by how I feel after watching it, so I personally thought it was a good one in that respect.  Chrysalis's comeback was cool, though I remember reading how one of "Equestria's oldest threats" was coming back early on in the MLP Wiki, and I got hype that they might bring back another G1 character.  Oh well, Chryssie was great here, so can't complain there.

Well, before reading this I would just like to say

!!!SPOILERS!!!

I have a similar method of judging an episode. Normally, I don't judge very hard because it's still a show for kids. I feel a lot of people forget that with analysis videos like Silver Quill and KP do.
However there were some things that I just couldn't overlook. It took Chrysalis carefully infiltrating, using secrecy and deception, and a well executed plan to get into Canterlot, take it over, and needed the power of feeding off all Shining's love to defeat Celestia. There were no glaring plot holes in her plan and gave a sense of despair for all the characters when the city was taken over and Chrysalis seemed unstoppable.
With this... she literally just says "I captured Princess Celestia AND Luna" and random changelings took over Twilight's castle. Uhh.. what? How? It took powered up Chryssie just to beat Celestia with quite a struggle. Also, going back to the origin episode of Thorax, Shining and Cadence seem really on the ball if even one Changeling is close. As well, wouldn't Thorax be able to sense them?
While I enjoyed the adventure, seeing the hive canonically, and some fun with Glim Glam and Trixie again, the setup just had so many holes in it and seemed kind of sloppy from a writing stand point. I can't really buy 'I captured the four most powerful beings in Equestria because I could for plot reasons.'
Regardless, in the end it's not like I hate the show or anything. I also like how they didn't reform Chrysalis. That would have been... boring and out of place. Looking forward to season 7!

A great movie, I remember when it came out too. The second one was good as well. I really like this piece and I too enjoyed the interaction of Triskie, Discord, Thorax and Starlight. Triskie and Discord's expressions are funny and the little Thorax is hilarious! Also my queen can audit me anytime :D.

Haven't seen the sequel yet...hoping it's as comedically charming as the first!  Yes the interaction really made the whole episode IMO, and I had a lot of fun watching it.  :)

Watch out that she doesn't drain too much love from your finances man :D

"The Troll of Chaos" bullseye.

Hehehehe, if you can think of it, it has been ponified. Never thought I'd see a parody picture of Grumpy Old Men and pony, but here we are. I'm not complaining, just saying. I will say casting Trixie and Discord as Jack and Walter respectfully was a good choice because that's exactly how they played in the finale. It just needed more ice fishing, beer, and polka music (cough, cough).

The "We Got Our Asses Kicked by Twilight and Friends" club, LOL! That's true though, I noticed that, there's such a powerful meaning in having reformed villains actually saving their old enemies AND all of Equestria! I loved the finale, was so incredible in many ways. Also yes, I loved those 4 together and how they interacted, as I said back then, best RPG party!!
