Top Ten Reasons Why My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Is the Worst Cartoon Ever

The Top Ten
1 The plot is so boring.

Yes, I agree with this. If there was one sentence explaining most of the shows episodes its: One or all of the Mane 6 make a mistake, use magic to fix it and learn nothing or the same thing over and over again. BORING so lame. The plot needs seeious explaining and the Royal Family, well there's none except 2 bloody princesses that hardly do anything. Don't they have parents or ancestors or anything?! Oh wait, they probably died doing something supposedly bad that was against freindship or died because there was too much. I don't blame them, I probably would have too.

Girl, you have a lot to learn about Bro Ship.

A. Wrong. I am not sexist. It is the truth and you know it.
B. So Wrong. You should get a new channel like Disney because you obviously have no idea what an excellent show is.
C. Correct, but not like you do. You girls try to rip each other to pieces. Do not deny it because I saw it all.
D. Correct. One point to you.
E. Wrong. We do not gossip, we talk or chat. It is you girls who do not know when to shut up (No offense.)
F. Wrong. I said we Talk and Chat. We do not have time for silly Gossip.
G.
All Cartoon Characters can be Athletes because they are Fictional.
You sound very Lazy if you think that "Flying" is even considered a Sport. (More like Excuse for an Easier life.)
If they did not have the Wings, Flutter Shy would not have been able to do that hurricane nor would Rainbow would be able to do her famous Rainboom and you know it.
We (The Coolest Dudes) do not need Wings to do Real Sport or ...more

If them Pony Gals were Dudes, then the plot would not be so Boring. Instead of them Fighting (They always Fight), Gossiping (Lame)and Playing with their Pets (Their idea of Fun), they would play Sports, Skate Board, Play Video Games, Go to the Pub (What, that's what we Dudes do.) and Joking around, then I guarantee you that this Show would be 100% Cool.

The person who said if the characters were guys the show would be better a: You're sexist. I'M a girl /:( B: I think it's already good. C: Boys fight too. D: Boys also play with pets ( Which IS fun for lots of people.) E: I forgot to mention that boys gossip too. F: They don't gossip a lot. G: I would consider flying as a sport, which Rainbow dash does a lot and Fluttershy did it in Hurricane Fluttershy. H: They would " Go to the Pub (What, that's what we Dudes do.)" Do I really have to say anymore? I: They do joke around.

2 Fluttershy is annoying.

Yes I agree, pinkie annoys me a lot, but in the show even though she is still my favorite pony, I do find myself being annoyed at not her character, but what the creators have done to her. What happened to cute sweet fluttershy? Now all we have is an assertive jerk.

Flutter Shy is so Lame and proves to have Multiple Personality Disorder. One minute she is Innocent and Shy, the next she is Evil and Aggressive/Assertive.

Fluttershy's grown far past her multiple personality disorder now (no I'm not rabidly defending, just stating my thoughts).

Right about now the only good one is Applejack...

3 Most of the characters are bland.

I like the series myself, but I do have to agree. It is not so much that it has bland characters or boring plots, but it is the same anyway, so more repetitive than anything else. However, it gets much better in season five, with the utopia society in the cutie map, drama between fluttershy and discord, and especially in slice of life. Hilarious, but with a bit of darkness. And while non brownies may disagree, it does teach kids a bit more about life than what you would think. After all, how is this the worst compared to sponge bob, uncle grandpa, Clarence, ugh I could go on. I know I liked mostly only starwars and other not so girlish this as a kid, but watching the series now, I still find it entertaining none the less.

Looks like Princess Twilight Sparkle's Super Wings will be Propelling her into the Sky while her Lame Friends are still the same with very Poor Character Development. (Especially Pinkie Pie)

Spitfire is far the only interesting character because she is funny and very strict and cool, the rest of the characters are not funny, or interesting.

Apple Bloom, Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle are the Most Bland.
They do not even have their Cutie Marks.
They are even more Plain then Apple Jack.

4 Discord is the worst villain ever.

NO! Discord is a character as old as celestial and Luna, and has a more creative purpose than most other villan's goals of taking over the world. He could easily defeat celestia in any battle, and was only defeated by the elements because of his recklessness. Take Sombra, he wanted complete power. Luna, everlasting darkness. (Stupid by the way, how would good grow with no sun? She would starve everyone, making it pointless to rule over the land.) Discord only wanted chaos because that was his species, and he was much smarter than other villains. He could still take care of ponies with the power to summon anything he wanted, while having endless happiness. His one downfall was that he was a bit reckless like I said before, and that he had a soft spot for fluttershy. But all that aside, he had the brains and potential to become a great villain, and had many entertaining episodes. That isn't even all, as he did manage to split up the mane 6, something the girls in rainbow rocks weren't ...more

Nah, Discord ain't that bad. He is cool villain until he sadly too got brainwashed by them ponies twice.

Discord vs bill cipher. The are both super powerful. That would be an awesome battle.

Plus he looks like a person with mental retardation drew him.

5 The humor is weak.

Yes I agree in previous seasons, however in slice of life I nearly died from laughter. With the whole Octavia vinyl scene, the gummy talk about life, and secret agent sweetiedrops or whatever, and I like how the humor wasn't around the mane 6's bland problems, but those of the background ponies. Oh and don't forget, hilarious sister hoed between Luna and celestial in that episode also. Even so, if the show is not as funny, it is interesting, creative, and addictive, something we should all be sable to enjoy.

The show is not even funny, the only funny character is spitfire because she yells a lot and is very strict. Pinkie pie is not even funny, she is just annoying and uses lame costumes, how funny, lame!, failed f -.

Modern Cartoons these days, they just lack the Humour that they used to have... If you want cartoons with Amazing Humour then here it is:

1. Looney Tunes: Bosko (Sinkin In The Bathtub & Hold Anything is The Best.), Bugs Bunny, Taz...
2. Popeye The Sailor (Who can forget? ).
3. Mickey Mouse (Black and White though...).
4. Betty Boop (Sexy even today).
5. The Flintstones...

Basically, Cartoons were so much better back in these days.

Well, I actually laughed at the show of how bad it is. Yeah, there was no humor at all, only the Magic of Friendship will laughed at the horses.

*cue laughing man dying in Funniest Joke In The World in Monty Python*

6 The writing is bad.

Not the worst writing I've seen in a show. I personally think Teen Titans Go have worse writing (I know this doesn't have to do anything with this list but whatever) Although I do find the phrase 'everypony' EXTREMELY annoying. So I half agree and half disagree.

The English is terrible. Who says "every pony"? Well now bronies do and get so used to that so they accidentally write it on a test and then fail.

Some episodes are written very well while others are not. Be more specific if you want this list to be valid.

I have never seen a script writing this bad for a child's cartoon.

7 Trixie is terrible.

Let's judge an entire series based on one minor character! Yay logic!

I hope their is a magic trick where an Anvil drops on her head.

The only thing that's terrible about her is her arrogance.

What is Trixie meant to be... A Witch or a Wizard?

8 Princess Luna is terrible.

Princess Luna has a pretty good backstory and leaves you wanting more of her, even if her plan for eternal darkness wasn't thought through all the way. Besides, I think it is celestia who is worse, Luna was just jealous because celestial was more important, because she had his in her shadow for a long time. Besides, who in the right mind would banish their own sibling to a place for a thousand years?

FINALY! Luna is terrible pony. She is my least favourite pony and chraracter, and because of her I don't want to watch season 7 episode 10 "A Royal Problem". She was acting like a brat there. Well, she always acts like a brat. So, Luna is stupid, ugly, silly, brainless and useless, annoying pony.

Six words as to why sadly she's not so good anymore (used to like her as a favorite but she's one of my least favorites): Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?

Princess Luna is a terrible character and really badly constructed, just like the rest of the show the character can be considered cancer.

9 The show isn't fun.

Yes, defendant is one way of putting it, but not human stupidity. Human stupidity is beating down and attacking a cutely animated show about the day to day conflicts of the life of ponies, band leaving shows such as sponge bob completely untouched. While mlp teaches valuable lessons through memorable experiences, shows like sponge bob teach nothing, and have bland, annoying humor.

Your argument is Invalid. Children should play in the park and learn how to interact with each other, not watch ugly dull ponies do bad things to each other.

Bronies are so defendant with this show. This is a sign of human stupidity!

Isn't fun? What the hell even?

10 Twilight Sparkle is an annoying know it all who should never have become a Princess.

I, personally, am still somewhat a big fan of the show (but not so much that I'm "blinded by [my] obsession", which, by the way, most bronies AREN'T and are actually agreeing that the most recent seasons of the show are absolute crap that should never have been put on the air), and I pretty much dropped out of the fandom for a while after Twilight got her wings, because she didn't deserve them. It didn't even make any sense, either. Twilight just corrected this one dude's spell, and BOOM, wings. So, what, if I go out and proofread one of my friends' essays or poems, I can become a magic Alicorn goddess? Is that how it works?

Besides, after that, character development for her pretty much halted, and she reverted back to Season One Twilight, who was a know-it-all. Everyone, in fact, had their character development halted at some point after that moment, and they reverted back to Season One them (that's why I'm not NEARLY as big a fan as I was).

Twilight used to be good to me, but come seasons 6, 7 and the film and now she's just an unlikable, boring, one dimensional jerk with anger issues, and in the film, manipulated her friends to achieve her own plan (yeah, I KNOW the whole "desperate times" thing and "we say things we don't mean to when we're angry" but that's no excuse, it was out of character and ruined her character).

She has her mistakes, yes, but she always takes responsibility. We all make mistakes. Hell, the Queen must've made a mistake at least once! Twilight might not be perfect but at least she shows how mistakes, even as a leader is ok.

Yes! She absolutley is. Twilight is a no it all. She does that and gets wings for what? She screames into ponies faces in the movie and plus in the episodes. She doesn't deserve to be the alicorn and the main caracter. And I totally agree. Okay? She is totally annoying spoiled who cares about only her duties and she creates racism which cannot be balanced.

The Contenders
11 The show isn't good.

Like I said. Sponge bob makes less sense. While the pony plot is interesting and describes a sort of alternate world in which there are no human's and the dominate race is of ponies, sponge bob lives at the bottom of an ocean as an annoying, talking inanamite object. In the show, there is a squirll who built a living space, non soggy people food, and literally an ocean underneath an ocean. Come on, take a break from mlp. Just because it is something meant for children that adults also enjoy, don't let that be the first show you attack.

Them stupid Brainwashed Bronies are so Obsessed over their Little Pony Worship that they do not even have the time to look at all the Mistakes that this poor excuse of a "Show" has.

The show's alright, but a lot of the fans overhyped it, it's got a lot of flaws and is currently going through seasonal rot.

They are too Bland, Dull and Pale to be Rainbow Ponies, you Imbecile. Learn your Rainbow colours.

12 It's only for little girls

Back in the days of Generation 1, 2, 3, and 3.5. What's a Brony? How many male fans existed. Would they get bullied in school/college. Would the military have fans in the days of Generation 1, 2, 3 and 3.5.

It is meant for children, but I believe the show, much like starwars or any other movie or T.V. show like it, should be something both kids and adults can enjoy.

Yeah but it has expanded it's audience over the years. There is definitely nothing wrong with that.

This Show and Bronies is a very clear sign of Human Stupidity and you know it.

13 Rainbow Dash is overrated.

If someone says that they hate her, then her fans will cyber bully you and you can never escape them, u want to be with other haters that agree with me. I hate rainbow dash, worst pony ever and worst character ever. She is making people evil, us haters need to stop this, rainbow dash is evil. If only there was a cartoon more people will like with no evil hypnotizing characters, I would be so happy and if rainbow dash loses popularity then people will be good again, and I want this to happen mostly for no more cyber bullying. Who is with me?

Whenever I try tell anyone I hate RD in the nicest way, I get peppered with insults and I get cyberbullied to bits. Go to the 'Best Things Rainbow Dash did' list to see. I am a brony but I just don't like one character and some of her fans, but the rest of the characters and their fandoms (Twilight Sparkle, AJ, Rarity, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie) are actually pretty awesome. Dash fans are horrible though.

I hate her so much. She's only overrated because of her looks and her being a tomboy or whatever. She's a stuck up, selfish and really rude bragger

I know right! If you say that you dislike her, the fans insult you. She's a fictional character for crying out loud!

14 Bad influence to children

Yelling and beating up monsters/animals doesn't solve your problems. Maybe that explains the fights that break put in elementary schools between girls...

The messages in this show are awful! Whining will always get you your way? Be a complete jerk to your friends? Cheat in a competition? Awful messages!

Children should be playing in the park and learning to interact with each other, not watch Ugly Ponies do Bad Things.

They keep treating each other like Poop.

15 Rainbow Dash is a bad influence

That is no Excuse to be Rude and Disrespectful. If she was Real, she would be Beaten and Clobbered by now.

Worst pony after sunset shimmer!

16 Hasbro not hiring Nowacking to voice Vinyl Scratch (DJ Pon-3)

As much as I love Nowacking and her voicing of Vinyl, I doubt she'd want to do it as a career, plus I've heard she hates the brony fandom.

There's a lot of DJ's out there.

17 Same lesson over and over

Not really, sometimes it is learning to accept yourself, sometimes it is learning quality over quantity, and sometimes it is learning to be kind other people. Almost every episode has something different to offer.

Besides me agreeing kids should play outside in a park with each other and interact, the better ways they can understand lessons/convey the concepts of friendship are to have their parents actually sit down and talk to them, have the parents actually do their job and not, to quote Nostalgia Chick, have their kids get babysat by Uncle Television for an hour. - SailorSedna

Children learn by interacting with each other and playing in the park, not watching ugly ponies do terrible things that should be banned.

Also, most of the "life lessons" the show has to tell are just preschool-kindergarten level.

18 Terrible animation

What I expected in a Child's Show:
1. Colourful
2. Bright
3. Good Cartoonish Animation (Like Disney Movies Aladdin, Little Mermaid... ETC)

What I got:

1. Really Bland
2. Dull
3. Pale
4. Cheap Animation drawn by Amateurs who probably never went to Art School in their life.

The colors of their Rainbow is so Wrong. A Rainbow does not consist of:

1. Hot Pink

2. Peach (Pale) Orange

3. Pale Cream Yellow (Should be Bright Yellow)

4. Turquoise (Wait, where is Green? )

5. Purple (Yeah, but not Really Dark Purple.)

6. White? Where is Green and Indigo?!

What I Expect in a Child's Cartoon: (Like "Looney Tunes" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" 1987/2003)

1. Rich Animation by Experts

2. Colourful

3. Bright

4. Wonderful Background

5. Good Quality

What I Got:

1. Cheap Animation by Amateurs (A Baby can do better then that.)

2. Bland (Possibly the most Bland Child's Cartoon that I ever saw.)

3. So Dull (Especially Rainbow Dash's Yellow Streak)

4. Lame Terrible Background

5. Poor Quality

The animation is so bad and cheap! It looks like it was animated with flash!

19 King Sombra is a lame villain

All the Villains are Lame if they easily get defeated by an Atrocious Rainbow and Crystals.

Why yes, yes he is.

20 The Cutie Mark

I am not done yet talking. (I am the same commenter who talked about Mark).

Quarter Marks were done by horsemen by using hair spray and some paper with holes in different shapes.
Second was the Branding. It was used by the blacksmiths which it is use to put animals or objects with some hot mark. It is also used as a torturing device for blacksmiths (or anyone else who has it). Consider this, always take care of your stuff people because a Brand just disappear without a trace and invisibly moves without noticing.

Imagine yourself as a Mark yourself. You act nothing until some horse just controls their powers by you.

Even Mark got tormented by the insults so hard that he never watch this show again.

This thing just insults other people who has a name "Mark".
I really know I have a friend name Mark who, like anybody else, hates this show.
Whenever someone calls him a "Cutie Mark", he ended up getting ticked off and ask me that they "insult" his name.
Quiet that I am right.

Also I believe it is based or punned for Quarter Marks, it is done by moat horseriders

I hate the way the Creators Demonize Cutie Marks.

That's why The cutie mark crusaders got picked on by Diamond Tiara about it

21 Over exaggerated facial expressions

You can especially notice this on Twilight, Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, and Cozy Glow. Just why, animators? Why make those facial expressions so ugly?

They should not have that much facial expressions due to the Ponies limited anatomy. Especially the face.

Facial Expressions are good but not when they are Exaggerated. It makes the Ponies look strange.

I hate how Season 4 and 5 started to Over Due their Expressions (Especially the Posh Ponies like Spoiled Rich and Ms. Harshwinny).

22 Magical girl anime

Cory In The House is million times better than this anime.

Yes tell me again again how a show with colorful Equines is a ripoff of a stupid cartoon

Anime fan: what kayn off animu is dis?
Cory in the house is much better than this anime.

23 The fans cyber-bully you if you don't like the show

Sadly, this actually happens but not all the fans do this but most of them do, and honestly they should stop doing this.

They do, it happens. Sadly rabid fanbases can ruin enjoyment of a show.

And ThePinkieMaster, sorry, but it's true, and it hurts in this case.

When I said I like the old MLP better, they started attacking me saying the new one is "cooler" and it's "less girly". I grew up with the old MLP, okay? Geez...

This isn't the show's fault.

24 Too many crossovers with other shows and video games
25 Pinkie Pie is the worst pony ever
