Do you know what else would have accomplished that? Turning them into stone. Or teleporting them to separate planes of existence. Or brainwashing them to never do that. As we know that he could have. Instantly. The second he was freed.

He chose to hurt them because he could.

I'm sorry, is the implication that Discord wasn't actively malicious? Because even ignoring all the other redeemed villains who definitely weren't "just having fun," Discord broke and brainwashed the mane 6 with the specific intent of destroying their all-important friendship, literally cheering when Twilight fell into despair.

Discord is mostly just trying to have fun. The Dazzlings were actively malicious.

As fictional characters, they can only respond how the writer/s write them, and in this case, the Dazzlings seem to still be malicious as per the decision of the writer/s. I do not doubt that they will be redeemed later, however.

Ahem.

On a less cringey note, this passage implies the Dazzlings no longer use magic for their performances but the latest music video 'Find The Magic' suggests tue opposite. Is the clip just a metaphor or is this a contradiction?

I hope they are not just randomly redeemed off-screen. The Dazzlings were some of the best villains in either series, and they could have had a lot more great villainy to give. I always thought their absence was going to have something to do with them plotting their revenge or trying to repair their pendants. I almost wish the Dazzlings were the ones behind the time-loop, rather than two more celebrity OC's.

One thing they could do though is present them as potentially redeemed, with the main characters and the viewers uncertain if they have changed their ways or not, then have them capitalize on a grab for power in an end of credits scene. Them realizing magic is leaking from the Equestrian portal for example, and of course, learning the portal is there at all.

The Dazzlings should stay as antagonists for as long as possible.

They don't have to be redeemed right away though. Chrysalis was not redeemed after her first appearance. Redeeming the Dazzlings should happen towards the end of the series.


Everything you say is true my lord! In recognition of this fact I have dedicated my first and only account in your honor!

But yeah, you pretty much stated everything I think about the Dazzlings and what I'd like to see happen with them(and not happen to them). They deserve better than this.

And you deserve acclaim for your brilliant insight and audacious vision! All who oppose this manifest glory are DOOMED!

So, Juniper Montage and Vilencia Vignette get to have onscreen reformations but not three of the most iconic villains of the series? What? I mean they arguably have even more reason to want to hurt Sunset Shimmer after losing the Battle of the Bands. It seems like such a letdown.



Yeah, these definitely look like the 'forgive and forget' types.
