Anti Princess Cadence Stamp by TheHappySpaceman01 Anti Princess Cadence Stamp by TheHappySpaceman01
I realized that nobody else had made this stamp yet, so I did. Deal with it.

Anyway, you heard me: Princess Cadence from MLP is an overrated Mary-sue, and I'm the only one who seems to think that. Why do I believe that, you may ask? Well, I'll tell you:
First of all, they pull in a character who's an alicorn. We've never heard of her before, yet they pull in this third alicorn. Before this we had all believed that there were only two of those, but suddenly out of nowhere, there's a third one. What the hell?
Then we discover that she's really nice, a great babysitter, and basically "perfect." Sounds like a bad OC to me, and definitely like a Mary-sue.
Then on top of that, instead of controlling the sun or the moon, we discover that she controls love. Okay, the Mary-sue-ness levels are rising!
And meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out where the hell she came from in the first place. Is she, like, Celestia's daughter or something? They leave it unexplained for the entire two episodes. And she's probably never going to appear again on the show, leaving her as undeveloped as she is.

So anyway, basically all I'm saying is that I don't like Cadence and I don't understand why nobody else feels the same way I do on the subject.

Yes, I know I'm a hater so I A. shouldn't be making a stamp like this and B. shouldn't know so much on the subject. But I have answers for both of the two. A. I saw it hadn't been done by any fans of the show, so I decided to do it. B. Having friends who are bronies helps a lot.

She and Shining Armor are my least favorites. Everything about them just seems too contrived and above all, under developed and rushed.

They were clearly only created to sell toys. Not to say that creating characters to sell toys is necessarily bad, but they could have put more effort into making them actually interesting. Hell, Maud Pie from season 4 was more interesting than them.

At least with some of their characters, like Maud, you can tell they put some effort into them even if they were intended originally just to create toys.

I think another big problem is that when Hasbro makes an MLP toy, they also have to somehow force it into the show, e.g. Princess Twilight and her Rainbow Friendship Castle (yes, that's literally what it's called).

Indeed. Not dissing the show, but I feel that since those two were introduced (not entirely their fault), it seems the show's kinda gone down in quality. I'd much rather read fan fiction than the actual thing.

Indeed. Also, it's funny: the decrease in quality only seemed to become apparent the moment I admitted liking MLP instead of putting on my faux-hate/middle ground attitude. Isn't that great?

Of course she's not a Mary sue! She is a great character. She is Celestia's niece, and she was born a Pegasus. Saying that these things make Cadence a Mary Sue is like saying that Celestia is.

OH LORD THE SUE RADAR IS OFF THE CHARTS!!! Yeah.. Cadence is probably my least favorite character in the entire show. She's super overrated and annoying. All she is is a pretty pink princess alicorn who marries a guard and becomes the sister in law of the main character. Believe me, if she was an OC she would be hated by almost everyone, but since she's suddenly a character on the show, she's just another pony all of a sudden T_T

Similar to how Equestria Girls (at least to me) felt like a bad fanfiction, and was only liked because it was official.

Yup! Exactly! There are just so many canon things that would be disliked if they were fan made. Like Rainbow Dash, Princess Cadence, Shining Armor, Princess Celestia, Flash Sen- oh wait.. People already hate him ._.

No she isn't.
She's very underrated actually.
Plus, she doesn't really have enough character and facts about her, so I wouldn't call her a mary sue.
Bye.

I don't hate her, but it seems that her and Shining Armor's personalities just revolve around each other. While love isn't a bad thing, it shouldn't be the one thing that is shown/motivating them. Good characters are interesting and can stand on their own, even with a love interest (Spider Man X Gwen Stacy for example).

:iconthehappyspaceman01:
TheHappySpaceman01 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I see your reasoning. So I suppose Princess Cadance and Shining Armor as a pairing is more similar to Spider-Man X Mary Jane.
Reply
:iconrockmangurl:
RockmanGurl Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Student General Artist
Exactly (more movie Mary Jane, as the comics version is a FAR better character). One's a hero, the other is the hero's object of desire. Though in the former department, Shining's almost always pretty useless. Unless it's in fan work (where I can actually get to like them), I really don't like these two at all.

Yes! She is totally a Sue.  I really wish she wasn't a princess… she doesn't fit in! Nor does she really have any flaws which bugs me… I really hate how she kinda gets into other pony's business's with her stupid love spell… it would be better if she wasn't a princess because she doesn't impact Equestria in a big way.

I admit I love Cadence, but she isn't my favorite pony.


But I haven't seen a flaw in her so far.



Another thing that's kind of off subject is how very few stamps with unpopular opinions have respect. I saw a stamp from someone saying they like porn but this place wasn't for it. The comments were full of butthurts!

I just like her character, she's very warm, humble, has a great design and a beautiful singing voice.

Also, adding "the" to that sentance would make no sense at all. In the tense I was using, "best pony" was appropriate. However, if I was to say that she is the best pony, then yeah. That would be correct, slightly, considering that the phrase "best pony" has become more of a subjective phrase and the word "the", a preposition is not required.

I agree so much, why just pull her in like that?
Though, some people say she's Princess Celestia's neice
And if she was in a photo, or a flashback, (and a pegasus/unicorn/earth pony) no-one would've cared.

And I didn't like her because she was pink, she had purple eyes, she was a babysitter, and she had wings. I thought Hasbro stole my OC!

:| I've been spammed by Cadence fans ever since I've posted this. When will I ever get a break?

You know, I'll just put it out there for you. Maybe I don't like her because I'm "jealous" or "a hater" or whatever. Maybe I don't like her because I prefer characters who at least have some flaws and more realistic. Besides, why are you talking to me about this? I'm not even a brony.

Calm down. I just gave you a definition and replied to another guy about all the more reason the love her character okay. I am not putting you down or anything like that. I offered the facts against her being a Mary-sue and that's all. If you don't like her then that's fine. We all like and dislike different things. It's what makes us unique. Cadence (Does) seem to be perfect but as of yet she hasn't displayed the more negative qualities that fit a Mary-sue. Am I saying that she won't? No, I'm not. Perhaps in the end YOU will prove to be right and you'll get the last laugh after all. If that happens then that's fine. As for me, I like Cadence and again I am not putting you down or making fun of you in any way because you don't.
