Description:

Am I the only one annoyed by the increasing use of these faces in MLP? I mean really, what do these actually add to the show?

Also adding "op is a duck" tag myself because I know someone is eventually going to.com

this is a show that has always tried new things season to season and i can’t begrudge them for trying stuff with expressions.

Not one of these faces are from a genuinely dramatic moment. For that matter, MLP doesn’t have a lot of genuinely dramatic moments. It’s mostly melodrama for laughs, which is exactly why the silly faces are used.

Oh lord. Okay. Tell me which of these sample faces were from a dramatic moment. The only one I can think of is when Twilight was describing her fear of Ladybugs, but that’s not even an over the top expression. That’s just her hugging herself with her wings.

True, but none of these come from dramatic moments. Even then, that’s only true for a dramatic moments that were supposed to take 100% seriously, not for over-the-top melodrama that were supposed to laugh at.

There’s a time and place for cartoon characters to make over the top expressions. dramatic moments are not one of them.

Yeah a lot of these on here aren’t even that "bad." They’re just mellow faces. Like the one with Twilight hiding behind her wings; what’s so over-the-top about that? Or Rarity raising her eyebrow?

How dare characters in an over-the-top cartoon express emotions in an over-the-top manner. Have you never watched a cartoon before?

I think I’m gonna cringe soon.
Pinkie Pie’s face at the bottom right hand corner is so disturbing to me. But the one most disturbing to me is the Rainbow Dash one near the center but closer to the top right hand corner. Why? IT REMINDS ME TOO MUCH OF MOMO!!! AND SHE IS TERRIFYING TO ME!!!

If you’re trying to find a reason to hate the show, perhaps it’s time you voluntarily stepped away. Especially if it’s been years since you actually cared.

The show is entering it’s final season. People with attitudes like yours should either take the opportunity to re-engage or else let the show be. Because in a handful of months it’s going to be all over.

You may be right. I lost interest in the show years ago, maybe I’m just trying to find a reason to hate it now.
Although I still think some of these faces are a bit over the top.
