  1. Don’t get tempted by a monkey centaur thing with horns just because it knows how to say the word “friendship” and betray the cute yellow pony who tries her best to defend you the entire time.
  2. Don’t throw a hissy fit just because: Your friend has another friend, you have to hang out with other people to play Dungeons and Dragons, and you weren’t invited to the opening of a school.
  3. In the event which you do throw a hissy fit against a school, don’t summon a bugbear to chase the students to near death and insult the substitute principal like a douche.
  4. Do not, I repeat, do not gather other villains to create a challenge for your future leader, especially without careful supervision and close attentions toward said villains.
If you follow all these Sprout you’re gonna do great.

you bring up some good points that make me see starlight in a bit of a better light as a character, a thing is too is that starlight is allowed to completely change. People forget but discord was pretty much done with his reformation arc in discordant harmony and then it turns out if he changes completely he disappears. So the rest of the series is himself and the writers having him have character growth while still trying to keep the antihero, like learning to value love and learning even good intentions can have bad consequences which is a lesson thats shown to stick in season 10.

Unless the character is Starlight Glimmer. She does all the “growing” off screen so when viewers see her again, its like a completely different pony.
I think this was because g4 needed to have episodes within seasons playable in any order. G5 will be streamed on Netflix. So I’m hoping it would be serial like most of their animated shows.
Except for the growing that happens in the season 6 premiere when she struggles with her first friendship lesson, No Second Prances where she has trouble making friends, Every Little Thing She Does where she still resorts to mind control and magic to solve her problems and also has been avoiding her lessons, has to overcome her fear of relapsing and lack of confidence in her leadership abilities in the season six finale. And that’s just in season six.
Starlight’s growth and redemption might seem quicker when compared to Discord, and in a certain sense it is, but that’s only because while Discord is reluctant to even do the barest minimum of reforming, Starlight is eager to do the necessary work and put in the effort required to show she’s reformed, so her growth naturally needs to occur in different areas. While Discord is confident in himself and his ability and needs the lessons in wanting to do good and become a better person, Starlight by contrast wants to do good and become a better person but her lessons and growth are in gaining the confidence in herself and her ability to actually do it. And both of them still struggle with sometimes being overeager in how they approach potential lessons and not thinking through their actions, as in A Royal Problem and even up through season 9 with episodes like Student Counsel. So Starlight doesn’t really have a faster reformation, she’s just more willing to work at it and so hers is focused on different areas than Discord’s.
Plus Starlight just gets to show up a lot more than Discord so her growth episodes are more often and closer together, instead of only happening once or twice a season like Discord’s.

  1. In all seriousness young stallion it won’t be easy there will be mistakes, mishaps and whatnot because becoming a better being is hard i know from experience. It will be slow but eventually you’ll get there more and more each day with each mistake you’ll sprout into something new.
