Twilight. Rainbow Dash. Anyone other than that eyesore of a downgrade.
 
Just to be clear, I’m being completely facetious. Starlight and Trixie are bosom mares 4 life, and Starlight is a good character as MLP characters go. I’ve seen a number of people either warm up to her given time or even state that it was her character development that they found so appealing.

Even if Trixie was poorly handled, her later appearances with Starlight are some of the best character writing Starlight has gotten, mostly due to the lack of having to butcher the Main 6 to make Starlight look good
 
Wish we had gotten more of that during Season 6, 7 & 8 instead of further slaughtering beloved characters

“ShimSham my GlimGlams”
@Latecomer  
The usual suspects: Every Little Thing She Does, To Where and Back Again, School Daze, maybe even Marks for Effort. Along with how people complained (rightly or not) about how Fluttershy took a head scratcher of a giant fucking leap in S9, I gotta say that the accusation against Glimmer sounds extra bullshit in terms of Fluttershy.

I wouldn’t say “butchered”, but for me, it did sometimes feel like the writers made the other characters lose a few brain cells to make Starlight look smarter.

If there’s a character that most probably was butchered/lessened to make any other character look better, I think we can agree it was Rainbow Dash. And it probably happened to her more than to any other character at the times it actually did happen.

@Meanlucario No I get that. Starlight just stuck out more as a sore thumb to me, I guess. I started liking her better when her appearances were away from the mane six so maybe I just didn’t like her with them.
 
Do you just not like Fluttershy?…
 
@Vivace Agreed.

The fact that she formed her own circle of friends away from the M6 and only ever became really close with Twilight really casts all the claims that Starlight was given the role in FiM that Sunset Shimmer deserved in a specious light. Sunset was unequivocally a main character of her series. It makes it look like they’re saying she should’ve been put to the side, like she was overexposed in her series.

It really doesn’t make her look that good though. Especially in hindsight. Cozy went to her with the problem, then it turned out she was just manipulating everyone.

I…can’t argue with that honestly. One of my most hated episodes in the entire show is because they just had to make Fluttershy right at the cost of destroying the whole Daring Do arc.

Interestingly enough, I didn’t really have a problem with Sunset. I wasn’t a big fan of her, but I didn’t dislike her like I did Starlight.
