Optimism (and ears) ftw!
I really disliked the “Crusaders of the Lost Mark”
Well maybe it’s mostly because it reminded me of a time where I was worried that a classmate had attempted to finish their living or purposely gotten hurt
Makes me really dislike the CMC and Cheerlie. Also, I literally hate Pipsqueak so much I can’t find the right words for it!

I have another unpopular opinion. I didn’t really like The Young Six’s song, “The Place Where We Belong”. Because it wasn’t that appealing in my mind, and I felt it was just unnecessary. It should’ve just worked with a montage.

But it’s not their fault that episode reminded them of an incident. Seemed pretty serious if you ask me 🤷‍♂️

Of that list, I’ll give Mudbriar since I find myself channeling him on occasion. Blueblood and Zephyr are intentionally written to be unlikeable(if anything they dropped the ball with Zephyr by trying to get the audience to sympathize with him with very little justification), and Trenderhoof just sucks, he’s just lame.
On one hand I think it’s cool to attempt to add some depth to them(Comics did a decent job with this for Blueblood in the comic he shared with Shining Armor, and both the Comics and Equestria Girls went to great lengths to actually make Zephyr more likable by showing him putting more effort into his craft whereas the show just doubled down on his loser traits). On the other hand I don’t think there’s anything wrong with making characters with the sole purpose of making sure the audience hates them and I don’t know why people have a problem with this(for example I see this all the time with Blueblood)

As I suspected, the official writers already made them worse. Why not turn them and that around and fix them? Every character has good traits, why not emphasize more on them? RTDE has got to be the worst trope since it’s like Hate Sink but for no valid reason other than just is?

Well, that kind of thing will always backfire with someone. More specifically with Blueblood… well, he goes both ways, really. I’ve seen him utterly demonised and treated as the most contemptible possible pony many times. Some people might find that tiresome, or recall that Rarity’s motives towards him were hardly pure… and of course, we see him only in one incident when most of the Manes have several to their name which would make them look as bad or worse if viewed in isolation. Others might just find the assumption that he must be useless or incompetent just because he’s obnoxious annoying. (And of course, some people likely stan for him because he’s rich and handsome.)

Depending on how entertaining or (Attractive) people find them decides how people treat hatesinks and villains.
Comparing Chrysalis and Blueblood for instance.

Well there is a thing known as one shot characters where you introduce a character for one episode and that’s it. If you try to develop all these one shot overtime, it’ll come off as rather messy and detract from the original main characters.

Daybreaker and Nightmare Moon manipulate Princess Luna into helping them destroy Princess Celestia once and for all, and that they can rule both Canterlot and Equestria forever. If Princess Celestia wants her sister back, she must defeat Daybreaker and Nightmare Moon yet once, but she must find a different way.

Regardless of what people think of the Season 9 series finale.
AT LEAST the main series came to a conclusion.
Meanwhile Equestria Girls was simply just ended abruptly without ceremony or any proper finale. I would have anticipated they’d at least stretch the series for a little beyond the ending of season 9 FiM, to give it s proper conclusion. But instead, corporate mandate just simply pulled the plug to the series.
This makes me wonder if the show staff had something planned in the works still stored up somewhere in the papers.

I think they said they wanted to end EQG with Sunset meeting with her EQG counterpart who was still bad, and I think it would have ended with EQG sunset being redeemed and pony sunset returning back home

I think Flutter Brutter had wasted potential. I wish there was a more personal story between Zephyr and Fluttershy. Honestly I see a parallel between them.
Back in the early seasons Fluttershy was kind of a loser. And even more so as a filly. I think they could have explored this more

Yeah I agree as someone who loved the season 9 finale I would’ve liked if EQG had something to end things off in a more satisfying way.
I always found it weird how the series was treated, it wasn’t a fully fledged “series” and just had shorts with a few exceptions as specials and the movies. Maybe if EQG was a proper show it would’ve been taken more seriously and lasted longer with a proper ending.
