Shining Alicorn by dm29 Shining Alicorn by dm29
All this recent Twilight alicorn talk is scaring me. There are laws, man. But fine, if you want to suddenly attach pegasus wings to canonical characters, here's Twilight Sparkle... 's brother.

He seems to like it.

:iconshiningarmorplz::iconsaysplz: pfft.  I earned my way to military command, my sister earned her way to her own ascension.  I guess...my own enlightenment was helped by my wife.  So she gets to throw me off the balcony now.

If this happened, I'd actual be more relaxed with this than  Alicorn Twilight.

I hope he becomes an alicorn in the finale. It would give us hope of alicorns stallions making an appearance in the show.

I'm surprised he hasn't already gotten the alicorn treatment. From what we've seen of him, he's nearly as qualified for it as Twilight was. Add in the fact that he is married to Cadance (another "promoted" alicorn) making him royalty, and you have to wonder why he doesn't already have them...

Maybe he needs more of his own journey of self-discovery aided by the Mane Six, much like Twilight had hers aided by Celestia.

Too easy.

I'd had a theory that there aren't any male alicorns is because...one hasn't emerged yet.  But if one did, Shining Armor would be the most likely candidate.

Sombra might have, if he didn't go down such a dark path.  It seems that each alicorn faces their own internal darkness, either before or after their ascension.  Luna had her Nightmare Moon period, Twilight went batshit insane.

If he is made an alicorn, then the universe will be complete. His wife and his sister are alicorns. Well his wife, Cadence was most likely born as one.

I theorize that since we saw Cadance seemingly younger in Twilight's flashback, she will have a normal lifespan, like Twilight (presumably).

As for why Celestia and Luna have lived so long, I don't know. Maybe it's because they are connected to the sun and the moon?

Personally I think (and this is my own opinion based on what's happened so far), that the alicorn condition is kind of a pony enlightenment...Twilight Sparkle had kind of a talent, Celestia saw a student, and the elements of harmony provided a sort of catalyst. It's the kind of thing that everypony could attain, but not everyone does, and they just grow into it.

That said, I think Shining Armor has as much of a chance as the other mane 6, probably more so because he has a loving wife to guide him. But each alicorn finds it in their own way...and often when they aren't even looking for it.

For all we know, Shining Armor may become the first male alicorn since the progenitors of Celestia and Luna.

And also, for all we know, Hasbro might try this.

Don't be so sure, he maybe the villain for season 4, here is a list of why he may be so.

1: He is the only unicorn in the Royal Family, other than Prince Blueblood, so he may get jealous of Twilight at one point to the fact that he starts attacking her.

2: He only cared for Cadence in A Canterlot Wedding, but now he acts like a roommate, in fact, he rarely gets close to her.

3: He gets all of the attention in A Canterlot Wedding part 1 when he was scolding Twilight, and he argued with Cadence, which shows the sin of Lust, and/or Greed.

I just thing Shining Armor is a greedy, power-hungry, nihilistic, sadistic bastard. I'm sorry but that is my opinion, he should be better off a villain.

1. Why would Shining Armor be jealous of Twilight? Even if they are siblings, they almost never had a fight.

2. He really cared about Cadance when King Sombra tried to take over the Chrystal Empire.

3. He thought Twilight was being mean to Cadance and he never knew that it was really Queen Chrysalis. He argued with Cadance because the changeling Cadance rudely asked him to wear something else, and then she hypnotized him.

Look, I understand most people's opinions, put I just don't know why you think he is a cold blooded bastard. Also, why would they make him a villain? I mean, he's the main character's brother, and the only thing bad he did was scold Twilight, and at that time, he was under the spell of Queen Chrysalis.

Also if you watched Wreck-It Ralph, we all thought King Candy was a good guy at first glance (He was trying to protect Vanellope), then we found out that he is this power-hungry villain (He purposely made Vanellope a glitch), what Shining Armor might be. (SPOILERS) At the climax King Candy becomes Turbo, like Shining Armor maybe a changeling as he threw Twilight and Cadence in the caves to help Chrysalis. (Turbo reprogrammed Vanellope's world to not let her and Ralph take it away from her) Also what happened in the climax of that movie is that King Candy becomes a horrific Cy-Bug, Shining Armor maybe a giant-parasprite-changeling thing. At the end Turbo gets attracted by the light and dies, Shining Armor may share a similar fate but for the Elements of Harmony, but it redeems him, and he is good again.

1: Twilight is an alicorn, Shining Armor isn't.

2: Ok, but after that, my point takes place.

3: At first glance I thought that would make his spell to protect Canterlot Castle, not hypnotize him.

I just do not like this character, you may like him, but I despise him, he should have just been a villain for season 4 but he gets redeemed.

It's probable that alicorns or pre-alicorns have a "batshit insane" period.  Twilight had hers before she enlightened, so the damage was minimal.  When it hit Luna...it was far more potent, and the only way Celestia could deal with her sister was to contain her for a time and let the Nightmare burn down.  Twilight et al were in the right place to do more and better.

Maybe Shining Armor needs to have his.

Tonytambe Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That was my point, but also Shining Armor could get all power-hungry and hegemonic, Like he could have plans to dominate the world just to be an alicorn, or he could be very abusive to Twilight, her friends, Celestia and Luna, and his wife Cadence and everyone he sees in his sight like Sunset Shimmer but more cruel and destructive (He might end up killing some ponies). But in the end, he realizes what he has done, as he ends up being an alicorn so he learns that hurting other people and ruling worlds is not a way to become an alicorn, and he becomes good again.

Maybe his actually happened during his duty in the military.  Or maybe it happened as a result of Chrysalis...while Celestia helped Twilight ascend, Cadence would help Shining Armor.  Cadence is strong with love...Shining is strong with protection.

He is going to have to train up a guard for the Crystal Empire, though...

As much as I have nothing again more male characters or having a male Alicorn in the show, I do not want it to be Shinning Armor, he is already more powerful then Cadance and Twilight as Unicorn, ( Twilight is powerful but balanced, get tired often and have limitation, Cadance holding up the shield got tired fast from lack of sleep, but Shinning Armor hold entire town under shield stoping entire army for who know how long with just mere head-ache while Queen was draining him ).
Not to mention that he got married to a princess only because his sister saved his marriage, and he become prince or emperor of Crystal Empire only because his sister saved it for him, so yea, Shinning Armor does not deserve wings and extra powers.
