A few MLP writers might be very tempted to write Neighsay as a one noted villain after the series 8 premiere. But consider this:
- Neighsay sneers about Twilight and friends running a school, asking her if she won't run off on some adventure. This is a good point, since the Mane Six have to go on quests to save Equestria on a regular basis.
- His concern about ponies needing to better prepare against eventual threats from outside Equestria is also rather understandable considering this is shortly after the Storm King's attempted invasion that saw three of its Alicorn Princesses turned to obsidian statues while the rest of the ponies were locked up or enslaved.
- He also cites unqualified teachers as another reason why he's shutting down the school. Considering no member of the Mane cast has any training or experience teaching (and admit they don't have a clue how to teach in a standard classroom setting once they're restricted to that), he's not wrong.
Racsim aside, he is NOT incorrect and the story exaggerates his closing down the school as some villainous act because it's aimed at toddlers. I still stand by Neighsay shouldn't be so cartoony over the top "evil" because he's NOT a villain.
