King Sombra by slifertheskydragon King Sombra by slifertheskydragon
edit: thanks for the features EQD! o7 [link] [link]

I've learned from the episode while he didn't have a "backstory"/"development" he still wasn't a bad villain, since he was able to corrupt everyone and make some really freaky nightmare doors o.o

He proved to me that theres not just "nice" unicorn spells in the series world. Now I can think up a proper backstory for my Unicorn OC. (No Name Yet)

i think it's been established that the magic twilight and the others typically use is "good magic" but that there is also "dark magic" (most likely fueled by negative emotions)

WHY COULDN'T THIS CHARACTER GET MORE LOVE. COME ON HASBRO!! This is the first Protagonist that MLP has had that isn't either an alicorn of some sort or something else along the line of a mythical creature. Just a unicorn of darkness. A pure badass and he got NO FREAKING LOVE DX I love all the villains of MLP period but he is my favorite..

it would be interested if he was really just infected by evil crystal or something and removing it returned him to his normal unicorn form

I actually thought he was a good villian. Yes, he was different than the villians that have come before, he didn't talk or interact with the heros as much, but I don't think he was supposed to. He was a villian more along the lines of Sauron. He is a threatening, looming presence that creates an atmosphere of urgency and fear. I think he does this very well.

I believe that the everyone says he was a waste character because of he wasn't quotable/affable like Discord, endearing/sympathetic like NMM or charming and slick like Chrysalis. He had a motive, despite people saying he didn't have one: He was a ruler of the empire before he taken out by Celestia/Luna, he's coming back to take it back. It's simple, but people think that isn't enough.

I also think he's a good (but not initially great) villian, though different from all the other ones. Here's the thing: He almost WON. Seriously, the only reason that he got obliterated is because Twilight decided to bring Spike to help and even when that happened, Shining Armor had pull a Fastball Special with his wife to get victory from the jaws of defeat. He was the most competent of all the villians...dare I say he's a bleeding genius and only someone like Twilight would be able to get though and even then she got caught by "the door". So not only that he has presence, he's smart. That makes him a threat bigger than anyone else even though NMM has super high magic, Discord has god-esque reality warping powers and Chrysalis has an army.

MY villian Rank: 1.)Discord - 9/10 2.)Chrysalis 8.5/10 3.)Sombra 7.5/10* 4.)NMM 7/10

*If Sombra doesn't come back (though I think he will), I'll dock .5.

Sombra was also a reality-warper, albeit more limited than Discord.

Not only did he remove the Empire from space and time for over a millennium, but it was heavily implied that he put all of those stairs and traps inside of a trippy pocket dimension as well.

Not to mention that his mere presence made the Empire start turning Mordor-ish, along with the strong implications that controlling the Heart would've allowed him to spread his effects over the rest of Equestria.

Personally, Sombra is the only villian so far I find genuinely creepy. The end of part 1 where he first reveals his face is especially so. :o

His design reminded me of a mix of Aku and Makuta. Also, you perfectly stated my argument of defense for his character.

*ahem* and yes, I agree with you guys, I think that it was about time that a "pure dark" villain was introduced to the series. Also, some say "too bad he was disintegrated :(" but I think everyone saw his horn fly into the screen completely intact and also we saw he can regenerate from just his horn, so there is a possibility for him to return.
