My Little Poney Question

Why does everyone hate alicorns as oc's?

So alicorns get so much hate when it comes to oc's and I don't get why, I think its because people think that he/she will act like "nothing can hurt me, i kill everyone!" But that's the plus uh... What's the word.... Noobish role players/writers/etc but i let my oc be weak, as he has many weaknesses like his nightmare side ou his jealousy over his sisters ou his cockiness so please tell me why people hate allicorn oc's

OK, when it comes to alicorns, I don't hate them. I dislike them. It's because many alicorn oc's don't come with a good story and people just say "is the daughter/son of Luna ou Celestia. Alicorns are royalty, toi don't just see one waltzing around in Ponyville. I mean, I like alicorns with a good story, not just being the relative of someone special. Alicorns shouldn't just be thrown around everywhere. I have no problem with your OC, though.

She's not an alicorn, she's a unicorn. She does have the body style of Cadence, though, so that's probably what toi thought wrong.

Well, when someone makes an OC of an alicorn, it's kinda power playing... Like someone else said, it is rare to see alicorns. It annoys me also that they say it is a Daughter ou son of Celestia ou Luna. Celestia and Luna can't have hundreds of kids...Plus, it's inaccurate to the montrer itself. It clearly states that there are only four alicorns in Equestria, and no longer. Personally, I like things to be accurate. That's just my opinion...

Indeed. The reason why I don't really like most of the alicorn OC's cos they are often overpowered, like Equestria wouldn't/couldn't survive without them. It's like they are soo much better than everypony else. As the others said, countless alicorn OC's are flat and shallow as a character, I've seen many, who's traits are basically the same as the Mane 6, but in one pony. It's part of the reason why my main OC is an earth pony; they are so underrepresented. However, if provided with a reasonable and original backstory, regarding their ascension to alicornhood, and some unique characteristics in their personality, it's much plus acceptable to me. Take your OC fro example. feu Dash has a character, being the kind of womanizer and his unstable mental condition and his origin story is creative as well, since he's been brought to life par Celestia's spell if I remember correctly. But many alicorn OC's don't follow this pattern; they are just being a plain Deus ex Machina, which is the most cliché of all characters. But of course, let it be noted, that I'm not an expert, I'm not that good in character building, this is just my own personal opinion and reality may differ from that. :)

Alicorns are supposed to be a rare poney race and... well, with over 9000 (or something) alicorns it just ruins that fac. I'm okay if the RPer's a good one and they have a good backstory as to why.

I don't think they hate them immediately, but because they often are op. Also since they're supposed to be rare since we only know of 4 in the show. If they include a good story about how they could be an ailicorn, it's usually plus understanding about the OC and usually isn't disliked as easily.

I know right...

I mean, if they don't have a good backstory, then I guess that's a problem.

My OC Honeybloom is from a place that is beyond Equestria, that is rumored to have a lot of alicorns.

I don't dislike them, but it pisses me off when they can end something like "poof!". OC Alicorns take away power from the main 4 princess. Making them look weaker. They're fine if we are talking about Alicorns that rule other worlds, but are visiting/ stuck in Equestria. As long as they aren't over powered. I think they're fine in fanfictions, but not in role playing. It would be odd if they were used in rping and they interacted with common ponies. They just don't have a place in role plays.

They are often catagorized as "Mary-Sues", a character that is absolutely perfect, and is flawless.
And, it's sometimes true. Sometimes. A lot of times, they aren't that way. My main OC is an Alicorn, but she is no means perfect. She isn't even royalty, she's just a normal pony.

Well, as OCs. Mainly because theyre overpowering, "the best," related to Celestia and Luna. etc of other annoying stuff.

Like everyone else has said,i don't like the fact that their naturally plus skilled then everyone else since they can fly and do magic.This is too over powering to me even if toi say your oc is not since it can't really be possible for an Alicorns NOT to be powerful since there made as rulers of Equestria and all,well unless they have some unknown disability that limits them but that'd give your character a big plot hole to me.My OC isn't an alicorn but she has papillon de nuit wings from experiments when in the womb. If toi have something like that where your oc was traverser, croix breed with another animal like a bird,ill accept that.Anything else i cant really like.Sorry to toi all who have an OC who's an alicorn,keep the alicorns limited like the montrer does.

It's flipping annoying how most people on fanfiction don't read my fanfics if my fanfics feature either Luna's children ou Celestia's children that are alicorns. That's why I upgraded to Fimfiction- where my work is plus appreciated, at least. Even an alicorn with the most flaws (shyness, special needs, etc.) is still seen as a mary sue in the eyes of a reader.

Well, honestly, I think aesthetics to a character should come AFTER a backstory.

I think it's because they look bad and their story is bad. If the OC 1. Has good art design 2. Has a good story 3. Rules nowhere near the canon storyline of the show, they're fine in my book. But if they're something like "rules over Fillydelphia, is the son/daughter of Cadence" and their couleurs don't collide well at all, then I don't like them.
Also, alicorns are meant to be rare. Just look at the ratio of alicorn to non-alicorn. 4:infinity. Yeah, not a lot...

The moste of the Alicorn OC´s are only made because they whanted to be the best. For example, my future OC is going to be a ROBOT alicorn. But she has a story. I have a friend who wanted to bi an alicorn but didnt have a back story!!!!!! XC While I made at least 5 ou soo.

I never actually heard ou read an alicorn oc's backstory but I can imagine that alicorn oc's can have a bad backstory. I also think just like the person here in this web site thetankmoment, she comes from another land and is not from equestria and then toi can kind of make an exception to alicorn oc's

3 simple reasons:

1. Cliched backstory/bad backstory

2. OP as hell (invincibility/immortality, all known powers)

3. That annoying claim he/she was born an alicorn instead of learning to become one, otherwise known as LAZY.

I have an alicorn OC, and she has none of these qualities. Picture of her seen below, and her name is Crystal Gleam. She was born a unicorn, but wanted to be able to fly when unable to use her magic, which shorts out when she becomes furious. She also became one because she wanted to be Luna's personal jeweler (person who makes jewelry) so she can design her shoes and make other kinds of things for her, donné she first finds the right gems for the items.

I would also like to point out a fourth reason-because many alicorns are made to be related to Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, etc. and that is annoying and unoriginal as hell.
