Anti-Villain

King Sombra Fan Club

I wish King Sombra was able to make a return to get revenge like Queen Chrysalis did because,

 

I feel like he wasn't a big enough part of "Crystal Empire Parts 1&2" even though he was supposed to be the main villain.

Another cool and decent villain. It's to bad he's pretty much dead now though.

 

Except in the comics. Where he return but then was redeemed in a BETTER REDEMPTION THAN STARLIGHT GLIMMER.

Either way his powers reminded me of Kingdom Hearts which I also liked (darkness).

Come to think of it, his voice sounded a lot like Xemnas, too.

Given his fate post-Siege Of The Crystal Empire, I think he'd actually take it in stride.

He kinda sucked in S9 episode 1. But episode 2 handled him much better imo.

IMO, he was better in S3-S5 and even FIENDship-Siege.

@A.V. I 100 percent agree with that. I don't know FIENDship-Siege, maybe because it's a comic or has something to do with Equestria girls which i'm not a fan of.

 

They should have kept his old voice, cut out a few lines of goofy dialogue and built upon his S3 personality.

Such a shame that even with his big return.....he still sucked

I disagree. He came as close as Tirek did to achieving his goals, arguably closer than Chrysalis did. He masterfully manipulated the Mane 6 for a sneak attack exactly where and when they thought they were safe. Basically he got about as far as it's possible for a villain to get on this show.

A lot of people took issues with the retooling of his character. I see it as necessary changes to make him more engaging for a two-part premiere in which he's not just a vague shadow of implied menace for most of it but an active flesh-and-blood antagonist. 1) He needs a professional VA for speaking more than a handful of words. 2) The target audience is still very young children, so he can't sound like a Cradle of Filth album. 3) A lot of the ORIGINAL complaints about him back in S3 were that he had no personality and seemed like a generic, mindless monster instead of a developed character. Now he had to be given some actual personality.

Yay, so much discussion. :3

 

I feel really confused about Sombra after his S9 reappearance. I liked him in S3 but he could have needed a lot improvement here and there. Then in S9 episode 1 he got a pretty jarring personality makeover and some questionable dialogue. But then in S9 episode 2 he had much better dialogue imo and he actually accomplished some shit.

 

I actually wanted to create a big topic where i compare the two of them and first i came to the conclusion that S3 Sombra was the better one. But looking at the accomplishments of S9 episode 2 Sombra i now feel like i have to scrap the topic because everything in it would only be messy and a bit contradictary and i don't wanna put out a rushed mess when it's so important to me. :(
