Buck reformed Discord, he is weak and boring pansy now that Fluttershy has him leashed and under her control.

From puppeteer, manipulator, and former all powerful ruler of Equestria... to one that gets his kicks from trying to ruin Twilight's day and stupid enough to think Tirek would be his 'friend'.

My opinion is this... ARE YOU CRAZY EVERYPONY? Discord was main villain in one episode, ONE EPISODE, and you are acting like you knew him for life. Seriously, i don't understand why everyone likes villains so much, i mean, they are hurting innocent people ( ponies ) and enjoying every minute of it. If someone tried to kill you even if you didn't do anything bad, how would you react? In fact, i never saw Discord as totally evil, simply as someone who wants to be free and have fun. I am glad he has more depht than just chaotic fun guy, don't you agree? Plus, he is not only manipulative villain in show- what about Chrysalis? I hate her, but i see everyone likes cruel and evil beasts who would destroy us and our world if they existed. (sarcasm): Hooray for apocalypse!
I am sorry for being rude. I am just stating my opinion. But please, could someone explain me why everyone likes those cruel beast who would destroy us?

Though it is good to see a villain (Other than Vegeta) becoming a "Good Guy," I liked Discord more before he was reformed. But I wouldn't say he was ruined because of it.

Discord acts so much more mischievous "reformed", like a cat! :3

OMG finally i found a poll like this!!!....

I just HATE the reformed Discord!
This is just not Discord! THIS IS CRAP...

I'm against it, Discord being reformed is as silly as the Joker being reformed and I feel if the writers continue on a path of him being 'good' I feel it would be a loss to the show. We need more manipulative villains like Discord yet they are sadly not as common, and was because of the cruelty and selfishness of his actions towards others that I enjoyed him so much.

You don't need to kill or physically harm someone to be evil, and I felt Discord showed this very well in Return of Harmony. As of right now, unless I'm proven otherwise, I'm treating this as him faking his reform. Though it is possible that he may have gained a fondness for Fluttershy thus making her his "Morality Pet" (TV Tropes) but even then I don't believe it will last.

I like it because now he gets to be a prick to ponies and not get petrified for it. :icondiscordtrollfaceplz:

The good thing about discord being reformed is we might get to see him more often.
sportygirl708 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I dont really like it because Discord was like the only Vilan and i though the final episode for season three was going to be like the Mane Six and the CutieMark Crusaders would turn him back to stone! me no likey.

Where's the option for: "Reformed?! What is this madness you speak off?!"

Nah, but seriously, you can't reform Q, Discord or any other draconiquus so I guess he's here to stay
Lunatiac Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Meh, not ruined, but I'm unhappy with it. He's an awesome villian.
SilvertoothTiger Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I would still like to see exploding cups.
Discord Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013
Me, reformed? Don't be silly.
Burnt-X3 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I honestly really hope he backstabs them or something in the future.
This just seemed so disgustingly out of character. Perhaps it would've been better if it was a two part episode, I dunno.
HolyGoldenCarter Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Student Photographer
I think he's the same guy, just that he causes less mischief.
Katana-Nova-Cat Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Voted "Ruined" ONLY because of the absence of a "too soon to tell" option (wanted to vote, but wasn't about to say "better"). We really need another option.

As it is... I don't really like it at the moment, but we can't really say where they're gonna go with this yet. All it takes is one half-decent episode detailing how in-character he still is and I'll be cool with whatever may or may not have changed.
EchoAfterMidnight Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013  Student General Artist
It was just really out of character for Discord, but it was still a nice episode.
MisplacedEquestrian Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
he might seem reformed, but i think he's up to something :P

The episode was kinda fanfiction-y, but I have to admit that it was pretty adorable.
AlexLive97 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmmmmm, I canīt decide.
Velancious Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
I'm not worried at all, as he wasn't really evil. He was just a troll who wanted to pick on everyone. I don't even think he actually is 'reformed'. There's always the chance he could've played along just to stay out of that prison.

Realistically, even if he was reformed, that doesn't take away the Discord we all know and love. He has just been put under house arrest now and is under heavy watch.
Depsycho Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
^ This is basically my thoughts on the "issue", if you can even call it an issue.

He's still Discord, and really, even as a villain he was never EVIL... he just did what he wanted to because he could. He never harmed anyone, and the only reason for separating the Elements was to keep from turning to stone once more.

I don't get why a lot of bronies got into a huff over it. Now we've practically got promised re-appearances of Discord. It's not like his personality has changed, he's just more considerate and less selfish.
linings Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
I would argue that Discord isn't reformed.
MorphiusX Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd say itwould feel a little wierd, but it feels so Jolly Good! *chuckle* :iconfirstdoctorplz:
RESHIRAMMASTER Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
He's not ruined, but I honestly don't know if I approve. I've read other comments, and I feel the same way as others do. That he was never really 'evil' in the first place. He kinda reminds me of an energetic old man pickin' on little whippersnappers. XD I hope he still is a troll, or else he isn't Discord. I mean, Discord can't be Discord if doesn't cause a bit of discord. Am I right?
GraysonXsilverstar Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
I guess I like it,but in my honest opinion.He fell too easily,They should've done another two-part special.On a side note:is it just me,or is flash getting more bouncy? Because I've noticed that they have gotten more bouncy and move to much.And pinkypie is to crazy....Sorry.Got off topic for a bit.Overall it is not that bad for Discord to be good,but he should have his own chaos capital of the world like he did in"the return of harmony"and should be a troll.
Iozia Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I never actually thought about him like a villain, I mean, he's just having fun with magic.
I would totally act the same if I had that power!
So I don't get what is the difference between before and after... Except for freedom and how people relate to him...
Depsycho Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
I can't believe people don't like it. I mean, Discord was NEVER truly evil, he was more toward the neutral zone.

Yes, he was indeed devious, but he's the MASTER OF CHAOS. It's expected.

See, when I saw Discord in the season 2 opener, I could actually see him getting along like he is now. It's not like he HATED anypony, he just wanted things to go his way and of course, not get turned into stone.

The most "evil" he did was be selfish. His intentions were never to cause harm.

He didn't separate the elements of harmony out of malicious intent, but simply due to covering his behind so he wouldn't get Medusa'd all over again.

So, yeah, for those who still think "DISCORD IS RUINED!!!11", let me remind you that he's still the same, just less selfish.

Besides, this gives more reason for seeing him in the show again. So chill, bronies!! :icondiscord-plz:
ECWfan Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
Agreed on your statement

But they should of done an another 2 parter like they did on the beginning of Season 2
Depsycho Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2013
I agree that it should have been in two parts.

One episode made it feel too rushed. That's my only complaint - or rather criticism.

zeldafan21 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
I think there needs to be a third option of to soon to tell, we saw him "reformed" for about 3 minutes and even then it was no distinct change so ya
RainbowVash Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
he was better wen he was a giant troll. but there being a nice non troll is better than not at all i guess
sp19047 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
............... I DON'T CARE, I CARE ABOUT DISCORD BEING BACK AFTER 2 YEARS!! :iconiloveitmoreplz:
vagrant-ferret Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd say neither; he's stil Discord, even if he's not going to be totally selfish. He represents chaos, afterall.
IAMNOTCRAZY24 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
Anyone who submits to Celestia is dead to me. :pissed:
ReaplingofDIE Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
There should be a "exactly the same" option.
Depsycho Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
I second that. :salute:
rennf002 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
I third that. :|
xXMarie-DeLa-MortXx Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't tell. I don't like it, but he's certainly not ruined. I'm really hoping they make a second part, where he does something terrible and tries to overthrow Celestia. I really hope that happens.

If not, that's okay, too. I just didn't like the ending of the episode. Overall, it was... okay.
MadDucky76105 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think he looks rather very cool now. I dont think his design is ruined at all! I eman EVERYONE knows nothing can ACTUALLY beat the oringinal but everybody has an opinion.
PaytoniThePerv Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I wouldn't say it ruined him, the episode was kinda rushed, but it has a very nice message to it, stating that no matter how evil something is, it always has a chance of redemption, just like epic mickey
Serafin-VD Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
Why are there only 2 options? He hasn't changed at all. You'll see... YOU'LL ALL SEE!
PaytoniThePerv Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You make a good point when you say that
Hyhtgifa Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Ruined forever
Krushnazag Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Personally, I enjoyed the episode. It was quite rushed at the end, but still followed a (somewhat) logical scheme. They couldn't keep releasing evil Discord, so they fixed him. The fans do love that silly little draconequius.

To be honest, I think everyone complaining about that episode needs to shut up. /].< I heard so much crap about the episode that I expected it to suck, and/or be horribly written, like a couple other episodes *cough* Sombra *cough* But then I saw, with the exception of it suddenly rocketing through what's apparently a complete change in the last few minutes, it was a good episode and helped round off many of the characters a little more.
