Who Are You Calling a Mary Sue? (WIP) by RussianKolz Who Are You Calling a Mary Sue? (WIP) by RussianKolz
Go Cadence go! Be a badass magically gifted, all powerful, alicorn.
Tell me again why is it all the alicorns appear like wimpssssssssssssssssssssssss in this show? Aren't they royalty?
Anyway, have a BA Cadence.
@^@
MY hand hurts.

She's dodging an attack. that you can't see cause this isn't the whole picture.

Yes, she has no cutie mark, suck it up. It's in the finished picture.

BTW; Cadence your wings can take a flying leap off a bridge. They are a bitch to work with.

It means an OC that can do everything. Really. for example, (She isn't real of course) Let's say I have an mlp oc named twinkle. She is Twilight's younger sister and she is the lost daughter of princess celestia. See what I mean?

I'm sick of seeing all these fans saying all the princesses are mary sues (including twi) when they're obviously not
and overlook their own oc's which often are

Calling someone renaissance x = calling him/er good at 80% of the stuff (eg a professional athlete who writes books, does oil painting and writes songs)

I find Cadence to be realy good character with really cute desing, the only thing she lack is good backstory, but she is the only alicorn what actually DO something, and it is something what I really like.

For those who say she is Mary Sue, how about compare her to Shining Armor.

Shining Armor is unicorn while Cadence is alicorn, so Cadence should be more powerful, and yet in the show:

Shining Armor hold barrier all over Equestria for who know how long while being drained by Chrysalis, and yet outside of headache he hardly show being even little tired.

Cadence who is not drained get tired and sleepy even without any powerful foe draining her from the shadow.

( And even if Shining Armor special talent is shields, being talented alone is not enough, because powerful barriers require a lot of power ).

Futhermore, it was Shining Armor shield who repelled changeling's while Cadence acted as his power source.



So yes, Cadence was useful, but in her case being powerful as alicorn actually make sense, and yet she was captured, she show fear when Chrysalis reveal herself, she didn't save Equestria and Crystal Empire but helped to safe it, and she gets tired.

Shining Armor seems to be more OP then her if someone ask me.

Correction, Shining Armor hold barrier all over Canterlot, not Equestria, my bad, but it's size is still as big as Crystal Empire.

The alicorns aren't wimps, they step aside to let the mane 6 learn from being the heroes.
Celestia is a protector only in desperate times. The only reason Chrysalis was able to beat her is that she was jacked up on Shining's love for Cadence. Chrysalis herself has no power of her own, beyond changing forms. Celestia would have beaten her had it A) been useful for the plot. B) Shining had loved Cadence less. Celestia and Luna are no longer connected to the elements which is why they didn't fight Discord.
Think of Celestia as Dumbledore. She's a powerful magical being, but her job is to teach and offer sanctuary, not to be the hero. The hero's job goes to her students.
Luna doesn't have enough screen time of being anything to give a judgement on her wimpness.
Cadence wasn't able to move the cart because she had been trapped in that cave and was weakened by that. One could argue she's the most badass of all as it is her and Shining Armor that saved the day in that episode. We don't know enough about her to make a judgement about her magical ability.

wooooooooooooow, big comment.
These are all valid points that I have known about and have agreed with for sometime.
But the main point of this picture wasn't degrade or hate on alicorns.
It wasn't even to update their image.
It was a drawing of Cadence being a bad-ass.
Because I wanted to draw a pony being bad-ass.
And Cadence came to mind first.

If your issue is with the title, her character trope is a 'Mary-Sue'
And I thought including that would be cute for the title.

And she's not a Mary Sue at all, that really annoys me.

Her character from what I have seen so far is a mary-sue, but its up for change now that we know she is coming back in a semi-major way in season 3.

Well, you can be happy now, she is no longer a mary-sue. Anyone willing to be thrown like a javalin out of a balcony can be considered not a mary sue.
Thank god for that too.

Yeah... as we have a slightly trolling Celestia and a late comer Luna... at least one of the princesses had to be badass, if not just to contrast with Brave's Mérida.
