Forgot Something? by Mystic-Forces Forgot Something? by Mystic-Forces
Geez, Twilight! I expected better from you.

But seriously though. Why didn't Twilight Sparkle and her friends bother to take the Elements of Harmony with them during the trip to the Crystal Empire? Twilight was tasked to prevent the empire from falling into the hands of evil, which would imply that King Sombra would make his return. And I know that this quest was designed to be a test for Twilight, but she wasn't restricted to take the Elements of Harmony with her on yet ANOTHER DANGEROUS QUEST.

Artist's Note:

I could have just excluded the background scenes in Panels 4 through 7, but I thought they were important to show what was Twilight thinking of during that moment of silence. The motion lines also play a key role if through her mind's eye was zooming in on where the Elements of Harmony are held at.

I'm assuming you're hardly the first to think of it, but the Equestrian exclamation of "BUCK!" sells it for me. Leastwise it's the first I've seen it.

I wonder if they'd work on him. Remember Luna wasn't evil just jealous. Discord was just a jerk but he never did anything (that we saw at least) that would kill anybody and he didn't even try to kill the mane six. Sombra was evil and that poor pony's reaction to him proved it. So there may be a chance that they wouldn't work or at least his shadow magic could counter it.

Lets be totally honest:
1) Nightmare Moon, mane 6 had to past everfree forest to get to 5 elements, then unlock them and then unlock final element, all this while not being murdered by all powerful godness, the only reason why they not died was because Nighmare Moon not wanted to kill them, she tried to scare them off ( I do not buy overconfidence, Nightmare Moon would not risk again something what locked her for 1000 years when she got back like 1 hour ago from it ), all Nighmare Moon had to do was to come to mane 6 and murder them, they would not stand a chance.
2) Discord took elements from under Celestia nose, and what happen, Celestia send mane 6 without elements to find elements, why not send quards to assist in search, why not wake up Luna and escord mane 6, she just used mane 6 as bait, only because Discord is as lethal as Rabbit.
3) Chrysalis, mane 6 had to fight again entire army of changelings and even if they would win they would still need to pass closed doors what only Celestia can open.
4) Sombra, they not took elements in the first place what make no sense, mane 6 are special because they can use elements, why not send other ponies instead, why risk element bearers live on mission to save empire if they not even use elements, why even make a test out of empire in danger, why hold back Luna, so many thinks that make no sense.

So yea, mane 6 always had trouble to get to elements, the only time when they actually had it was in normal episode with Discord, but lets be honest, Discord was a pussy in this episode, he was still cool awesome troll, but he was a pussy, he accepted friendship far to fast, they would make character development a bit longer, or make 2 episodes out of it.

No killing, I know, but villains would still defeat mane 6 if they just wanted too.

In other words, they lost because they had to do many mistakes.

Yea.

Nightmare moon: When rainbow dash was alone could easily capture her, and lock her up somewhere, and than the elements would have become useless for they missing one member.

Discord: He was just dumb. He could just had kept the necklaces somewhere where they need magic or wings to come too, and then turn all of the mane 6 to earth ponies.

Chrysalis: She just needed to teleport twilight and cadence back to the cave.

Sombra: Why not making so if the crystal heart teleported back if it was moved, or put a forcefield around it.

Well, since Twilight is Alicorn now and princesses have no more reasons to test her and hide when crisis come, maybe now villains will not need to do mistakes to lose.

I think the reason why villains had to make those mistakes was just power balance, villains had so much advantage that they could not lose unless they tried hard to lose, now when balance will be more fair in season 4, villains can just go all out.

CommanderEX Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
Pfff, where did you get that idea ?

First off, the only reason why mane 6 won again Nightmare Moon and Discord were elements of harmony, that cute little deus ex machina, so mane 6 strength come from elements, they are glass cannon, they can be easy defeated but they can KO any enemy if they just aim and shot.

Twilight being Alicorn turn glass cannon into steel canon,they still it as hard if they aim and shot, but now at last they have a bit more defence.

Do not forget that Twilight is Alicorn trainee, she just transformed into one, she will need to train her new powers and abilities, and Celestia as full power Alicorn was defeated in 15 second, what a shame.

So yea, you got the wrong idea, Twilight being Alicorn just balance it a bit better, but Twilight was already power house of the team, so that think wont change much.

thats because if she had brought the elements on her quest she wouldn't have been able to level up. its kind of like in everquest, with the goblins outside the castle doors, you could go out there and kill them yourself OR you could drag them back to the gates for the guards to kill and then you can collect what loot they have. while this is a good way to farm for items, it gives you absolutly 0 exp. and just think if twilight didn't level up how else could she have done that evil magic crap to open sombra's evil door

Celestia & Luna must've already used those themselves; Sombra placed a curse on the Empire. Maybe that curse is to make the empire vanish again and again should the Elements ever be used again to defeat Sombra.
