Chrysalis, Queen of the Changelings by NeonNoble Chrysalis, Queen of the Changelings by NeonNoble
EDIT: HIT "DOWNLOAD" FOR A MASSIVE WALLPAPER SIZED VERSION!


Well, damn. Season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has ended on the incredibly high note that was the Canterlot Wedding double-feature. With three great musical pieces and excellent characters and voice acting, they make up my most favorite episodes of Friendship is Magic to date. (Sorry, Zecora, but Bridle Gossip has to back off a bit.)

Chrysalis the changeling was a bit of a surprise. I was expecting an evil clone or just a really ticked off twin sister. But, nope. A Changeling. Who feeds off of love. Equestria's a dangerous place and I don't want to live there.

What I liked most was her insect-like appearance. On top of that, she made crackling and clicking sounds when she walked around, only further enhancing the fact that she was designed to be like an insect. Also, she flies like one. Overall, pretty creepy, but I loved the design. Simple, yet effective.

I'm just going to add this to the flood of Chrysalis fanart that has popped up.

Once again, i must say i love this character. Never even seen the episodes but i'm loving the character already. Seriously though, i have to give Hasbro and the MLP creators serious props for creating her and, uh, pretty much everything in MLP:FIM. Damn they hit a goddamn gold mine the size of jupiter with this. XD WOOT!!!!

She had a good start but at the end she got dumb real fast. One example is instead of banishing Twilight and the others because she is now more powerful than Celestia to say another planet or the moon if you arent that creative she Just looks away ignoring them while she just boasts and brags to herself. Another reason is that if the love Shining armor had foe Candace is so strong the how come when the other monsters transformed into the main 6 they got beat up instead of getting as powerful as their leader? Its not just the villians that I hate its the entire season finale! AND WHOEVER WROTE THE LIN BIG BROTHER BEST FRIEND FOREVER SHOULD BE PUNCHED!

1) This is a classic case of hubris, where Chrysalis's massive amount of power causes her to feel invincible. Why do anything she doesn't need to? She has all of the power in the world. Many villains are subdued by this.

2) The Changelings weren't absorbing power at the time. Instead, they simply transformed into the others to confuse them in the fight.

3) I think you need to take your hatred for the Season Finale elsewhere, because I absolutely loved it. "Big Brother Best Friend Forever" appropriately describes Twilight's relationship with her brother as well as emphasizes her extreme levels of dorkiness.

OKay hate is a strong word. I actually like the show for what it is. The reason I didnt like it was because this was the first episode I actually really wanted to see. My actuall opinion is that it kept going from good to painful alot. I liked somethings but the plot holes and HUGE anticlimax just really felt like a letdown.

While Discord would certainly kick her ass, I don't think they'd ever fight each other. They'd be more likely to be allies than enemies-- unless, of course, the agreement went sour.

i think discord would be a little pissed off at her because she hurt the princesse and tried to take over the world

: discord fights indeirctly and uses special "talents" to mess with poeple (spelling fail) n however he never does phyiscal damge to anyone and thats why i think he would be a little mad at what she did to the princesse he might see it as an insult.I can't explain why but every villian who is like that gets pissed when another villian does that

Queen Chrysalis is a evil matermind hellbent on taking the life (love) out of every living thing in Equestria and will detroyed anyone who gets in her way

so that what i know...what do you think did i make some good points? :)

While they have different approaches, there is one thing they can agree on: they don't like letting Celestia (and Luna) rule things. If they could put aside their differences, I'm sure they could conquer Equestria.

Besides, the deception approach that Chrysalis had going there seems like something Discord would approve of.

i don't know man,just, when villians like those two come together its hard for them the maintain a relationship they might have the same hate for the princesse, but discord dosn't really want to rule the world he just wants the ponys to live without hope or peace, i mean when mane 6 broke up their friendship he technully won untill twilight read the letters and so on.

i might be leadding tword discord alot but thats because he complcated you don't really understand him and thats what makes him dangerous.

Queen Chrysalis didn't really deafeat mane 6 but she captured them which i think on a certean level the counts. she is diffitnally more evil than disord and more smart then he is

so... thats just my opinion on how it would work out

and yes discord would like how she made her approach

It is SO satisfying to see characters like this get what they deserved.

Personally I would have preferred she have a more painful exit, but still.

She got what she deserved, all right: a loving fanbase. :P

Granted, the expulsion of her from Equestria was certainly also deserved. Everyone still likes a good villain now and then.

She would be cool to see again. Heck, the Changelings in general were a nice addition to the wild world of Equestria, and I'd like to see them again somehow.

though i think they should have been called kelpies. these guys have a wet look, are horses and raggedy shape-shifters. changeling refers normally to a human shaped entity.
anyway, they were an interesting antagonist. and considering their popularity and amount of fan art shown since they were revealed saturday, i think they are. hope eveyone realizes that chrysalis was only stronger than celestia because she had grown fat and strong on that unicorn's affections.

:iconneonnoble:
NeonNoble Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012
Because ponies seem to be the main sentient race, it makes more sense that the changelings around Equestria would look more like ponies than humans. Additionally, I don't think they look wet--in fact, they're vastly more insect-like than sea creature-like. Heck, the fact that Chrysalis makes bug-like clicking and clacking sounds as she walks or the way her wings flap like those of a fly just cements the bug comparison even better.

But, yes. Very interesting antagonists. Their ability to leech power from an emotion is very high... I guess Love is the strongest thing there is. Good thing they run off of it.
