Never said I didn't like King Sombra. King Sombra was an awesome villain :heart: It's just extraordinarily easy to make funny jokes about him :lol:

Discord is better than him as a character, but better as a villain? Far from it

I can't take discord serious as a villain, when he's with the other ponies, I know he's just going to annoy them. As for sombra, do I even need to explain? Mabe I do cause the person who drew this is only6 years old XD

The only 2 male villains in the show. And thier the only ones who have never really been explained why they are/were villains.
NMM was jealous and wanted to be noticed and loved.
Chrysallis was trying to take care of her subjects. 
Discord's only history was that he's the spirit of chaos. But How? Maybe Pinkie was like him when he was younger, let a powerful friend, such as Celestia or Twilight, try a spell on him...I call this story! Call this headcanon! Cause I came up with it.
Sombra is never explained why he got into dark magic. To save someone, but it failed?

I guess this is the show's gift to the viewer's to make headcanons. Why only the guys seem to go bad for reasons to be never be explained.

Actually... A draconequus is an actual species... So more or less... He was born that way...

Draconequus more or less means Dragon Pony... Seeing as how dragons are usually powerful in magical abilities anyway...

All signs point to basically you being an idiot...

Or you're head canon being wrong...

As for King Sombra... He's just power hungry... Look... I know it's usually interesting to have a developed 3 dimensional villain every now and then...

But fuck you... Some times we just want a power hungry asshole...

Look what I'm basically trying to say is that you're stupid for questioning things and you should really stop...

Of course, Discord has a more interesting role here now, as a "trickster mentor" type guy. Sombra would have been more intriguing though...

How so? By using dark magic to help, and not chaotic magic?

I would say by "purifying" him instead of blowing the crap out him with magic.
But then again, him being good would be an awesome "lesson". It would say, even if the guy looks mean or evil, everyone has the chance to be good, and needs that chance. Everyone needs a friend, no matter how creepy they are/look.
I know Discord's taught forgiveness, but I feel Sombra could teach that and the message above.
And, you know, more backstory for Sombra.

I think somepony needs to tell the creators of MLP:FIM to make A Tale of One Shadow part of the official canon. as awesome as the show is now, can you imagine the boost the show would get with this kind of dramatic storytelling?

Btw, what's the name of Sombra's mare?

It would be amazing if it were to be part of the canonical story line..

His mare is QUEEN SCARLETT lol just kidding..
I don't know the name of that specific mare.. I'll be sure to look it up.

Remember the magic he uses? Think back to the S4 intro. That magic is given a name. The name? ALICORN MAGIC. THIS HAS TO MEAN SOMETHING.

King Sombra needs to be used in more episodes. He is an awesome villain; and his appearance suggests that he would be a MAJOR threat if he was ever revived. He's an evil, power-mad, King with a red horn and glowing eyes; that's enough for any cartoon villain to be a total beast.

Though - for me as a Godzilla fan, the entire concept of the Crystal Empire was something to make fun of.

To be honest the reason Sombra is easily to be made jokes about is because this fandom is used to villains who either have a great personality like Discord, great motvation like Chrysalis and a Great background story like NMM. Yeah Sombra doesnt have either of those but he has something that no other villain ever had. Great Presence, the mere mention of him made that Crystal pony lose her shit and even his trading card said his name strikes fear inot the hearts of ponies, I don't see anypony being all like "I cant take it anymore" when Discord Chrysalis or NMM arrived. Main point is that each villain has something that makes them different than the other three. Pres

 Agreed. Sombra had the personality of wet cardboard, but he was easily the most terrifying of all the villains we've seen on MLP. Appropriate as that was kind of his shtick. He was pervasive, everywhere, literally a black cloud engulfing and corrupting the Empire, blocking out the crystal ponies memories of happiness and replacing them only with memories of his horrific rule. And he was the only one who didn't fall due to overconfidence and arrogance, but was actively fighting for his victory all the way to the end. Worth making a personality for and doing things with as a villain.

Theres also one fact, He was given a small role thats for sure but how is it his fault? Or even the writers fault since Twilights test was the point of the episode. Rather than looking at the role a villain is given we should look at how well he pulls it off, Although the animation in MLP makes it hard for a villain to look scary he still came out really scary. Heck when he said "Yesss, Crystallzzz." That was really creepy, even the way he looked at that crystal mare was weird. And when he came after Spike yelling "That is mine" I was scared for Spike, when Sombra licked his lips I thought he was gonna straight up eat him. Too bad he will never get the respect he deserves in a fandom that cares more about how funny a villain is rather than what they do, I hope he comes back, really.

Thanks :) in all honestly he reminds me of king Xerxes from the 300 movie. They both are tyrants who have no redeeming qualities and both barely appear because they have either minions or traps to do the evil for them, and they both are very clever as Xerxer managed to find a way to defeat the spartans and Sombra almost won but lost because of bad luck. Maybe its because a lot of people expected Chrysalis or Discord No.2 that they wont accept any different type of villain and call them lame.

First off, I'd like to say that this a really funny piece art. Well done.

 

Second, I'd like to ask if I could use this for a fanfiction that I'm working on. As it always was, I will give credit to you for this art; all I need is your permission.
