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's not the over-powered kind of sue, the more subtle type, she's clever, beautiful, kind, caring, an alicorn etc.

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).

I see your reasoning. So I suppose Princess Cadance and Shining Armor as a pairing is more similar to Spider-Man X Mary Jane.

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.

:| 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.

A Mary-sue is typically a female fanfiction character who is so perfect as to be annoying. A Mary Sue character is usually written by a beginning author. Often, the Mary Sue is a self-insert with a few "improvements" (ex. better body, more popular, etc). The Mary Sue character is almost always beautiful, smart, etc... In short, she is the "perfect" girl. The Mary Sue usually falls in love with the author's favorite character(s) and winds up upstaging all of the other characters in the book/series/universe.

Now to me, Cadence only fits some of that. She's beautiful and smart and fell in love with Shining Armor and married him. But as of yet she doesn't quite fit the definition of a Mary-sue mentioned above and she probably won't. But if it's your opinion that she is then I will no longer debate about it. Cadence is kind, gentle and sweet and I can't see her ending up to be the jerk of jerks who thinks she's better than everypony else.

To be fair, she hasn't really had much of a chance. She's only been in the show a little while and even though I admit that she's not that well developed...none of the secondary characters actually are. 
She's a flat character but she's a nice one. She's not obnoxious.

Not to start a flame war or anything, but I think I could find a few flaws in your argument.

>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?

So what? You have a problem with new characters? Sure, It`s un-expected, but that means new adventures, new episodes and new  secrets about the series to uncover. Making more fun! New characters are AWESOME!!! Without them, the series would be bland and boring.

>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.

What is everyone's problem with marry-sues anyway? They seem kind, lovable and sweet. Plus, Twilight Sparkle is kind, a great student and "perfect" and none of you hate her. Just give these Marry-sue characters a chance for once.

>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!

Yeah, and without love in the Equestria universe everyone would HATE each-other. Cadence is REAL important in the series. Sure, she dosen`t make that much of an appearance in the series, but there`s still love isn`t there?

>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.

Look at yourself. You don`t even know the first thing about the character you hate. At least get some more info on her before you make a stamp like this.

Now I fully respect your opinion. Your allowed to hate this character and I`m allowed to like it. But please, try to find ONE thing you like about this character before you start hating her. You hate and like your stuff and I`ll hate and like mine. Now you do have a point here and there, but I am in NO WAY am trying to make you haters feel bad. I have my bones to pick with her too. Like I just don`t like the idea of her always asking her friends to do something instead of doing it herself. But notice how I still like her though? I hope I didn`t make you feel bad and I`m sorry if I annoy you.

(P.S: I saw your reply to :iconmlpfimrox:. Don`t be so harsh. And she IS under-rated after all. You know why? Because people like you HATE her. Not because people LIKE her.)

(P.P.S:In regards to the previous P.S, again I apolojise if I annoy you.)

Pulling a third alicorn in after only knowing of two alicorns seems a bit... well, let's just say that if she were an OC, people would immediately dismiss her as a Mary-sue without even looking at the rest of it. Yet since she's canon, they love her. I think my reasoning should make sense.

There's a thin line between "really really good" and "perfect." Twilight Sparkle isn't, as you say, perfect, because while she seems kind and a great student, on the inside she's also OCD, as shown in Lesson Zero. Cadence, on the other hand, seems seems less like a character and more like a role model, and while that's good, I prefer characters who aren't bland and actually have a personality.

Yes, but this brings up the question. Before Cadence came around, did love not exist or something? And to be honest, her talent isn't even love. It's hypnotism. She hypnotizes ponies to believe they're in love with each other.

Look, do you actually expect me to know stuff about her? I'm not even a brony, so I don't know any of that stuff. Now I know that, as a non-brony, 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.

Now I'm completely okay with you liking the character and I understand your reasons, but you need to be okay with me disliking her and you need to understand my reasoning. And to her credit, her voice actress at least does a half-decent job. And I'm still okay with you.

P.S.: Haha, me don't be so harsh? I'm only harsh in response to other people being harsh. All ~MLPFiMRox did was do an entirely caps lock message, using ad hominem, circular arguments and non sequitur, and calling me, and I quote, "YOU DUMB, BUTTHURT, IDIOT." And then on top of that, she reported my deviation for absolutely no reason except for the fact that I'm disliking a character that most other people who have seen the show like. So yeah, I'm not the only one being harsh.

P.P.S.: It's okay, you don't annoy me... yet. (Cue dramatic sound effect.) No but seriously, you don't annoy me. You bring up some valid points, and I'm glad you didn't block me immediately like some other people. :)

That`s okay. You can hate her as much as you like. I was just giving a fighting argument. The only people I DO hate for giving there opinions are Anti-bronies. They just go to random websites and videos and just yell out "PONIES SUCK!!!" for no reason.

But that`s off topic. And your a cool dude.

Even when I was an anti-brony, I didn't usually do that type of stuff. Now I realize that it's your own thing and as long as it isn't genocide or something like that, you're allowed to like it. :) That's why I don't feel like arguing over whether or not Cadence is a Mary-sue.

Aw, thanks! :)

P.S.: I've seen it spelled as "Cadance" and "Cadence". Which is correct? Different bronies have told me different things.
