I love the detail on anatomy, particularly the wing joints. I have a very large interest in studying the anatomy of body parts that my species does not have. O: Wings would be one of them.

I wish they'd bring her back... like Trixie!!!
She is, without a doubt, the most BA character in the whole show.

well, she's quite a jerk in the show so it is normal she's being hated.

Actually not. Keep in mind that she is a predatory creature ( indeed an obligate Carnivore, so she can only eat meat ) and her best friend is her natural prey. ( Griffons normally eat horses ) So visiting RD puts a lot stress on her, meaning she can only stay a short time without risking some serious health problems...or eating someone. Even worse is that whenever she wants to spend some of that short time with RD, Pinkie comes to annoy her. Face it, Pinkie is damn annoying. And then her so-called best friend ditched her. So yes, Pinkie and RD are the total jerks.

Oh and in case of Fluttershy: That flying doormat just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Some historical interpretations of griffons portray them as fish-eaters. I suspect the writers of the show were using that approach when the introduced a griffon. Just to avoid potential problems. :)

Mind you, Fluttershy would still have gotten upset if she saw Gilda power dive into the lake and emerge with one of her scaly friends in her beak, but that's something else.

A Griffon might change its diet to a different prey, but in the end it has to eat other animals.

So in the end, she will make Fluttershy cry, no matter what she does.

That doesn't excuse her behavior. And the show never states that's the reason she is so mean-spirited. Her best friend didn't ditch her, she flew off herself after deciding Rainbow Dash didn't meet her standards.

Being in the wrong place at the wrong time doesn't give one the right to be nasty. Essentially the moral of the episode is the difference between harmless humor and mischief opposed to outright cruelty.

Well it is a show for little girls. Do you think they would state that she eats horses?

No, but we don't know that she does. So from the point of view of the people watching she's just being a jerk. The cardinal rule is show don't tell. They never show her actually preying on ponies for food, if she did I think all Griffons would never be allowed into Equestria by a 100 foot pole.

Also this is a alternate universe. Who's to say Griffons eat ponies or horses in this world. They appear to like apples and cake more.

oh boy are you right it always disturb me on how much hate gilda gets just because she made fluttershy cry i know she needs to say she sorry for it but just the way people wishing death on her makes no sense since there have been worse things people have done in the show than make fluttershy cry

TehGoatBoi Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Student Digital Artist
absolutely! not to mention, who fucking HASNT made fluttershy cry? hell im pretty sure throughout the whole series each of the mane 6 have probably made her cry at least once. shit, shes a wreck, and yeah gilda was wrong in a bit of what she did in the episode but she catches WAY too much hell. she was provoked through half of the fuckin episode anyway.

i really hope that in season 4 gilda gets a redeeming episode. griffon brush over is one of what i think the weakest episode of the series along with boast busters

TehGoatBoi Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Student Digital Artist
it is the only episode i disagree with the way they handled the ending, it goes against the series i think. dash should have gone after her, i mean if they were such great friends which the show obviously paints them to be, how can she just so flippantly let her go like that? i agree gilda needs to come back for an episode or two, hell, make her an occasional character like zecora.

yes i wish they did the same thing with Trixie i mean she really got screwed in boast busters even though she really didn't do anything wrong

just bein a braggy cunt and fibbing, worst thing anyone did was snips and snails being retards
Reply

gonzo22 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013
wow now i don't think she did anything wrong in the episode. when Trixie first appeared she was just putting on a show for the ponies but applejack rainbow dash and rarity are started heckling her because she was showing off which somehow makes her a bad pony for some reason, but Trixie is a performer it her job to show off and boast about her talents and what performer doesn't exaggerate their feats now again.

dash aj and rarity were just being rude. and when she Trixie started to challenged twilight which Trixie only did because spike called twilight a better unicorn than her. and the ursa major was snips and snails fault not Trixie's because she didn't go and bring it back to town herself or tell snips and snails to do it. and she actually tried to defeat herself and failing but at least she tried, and after all that the blame is put on Trixie she loses her job, her home and her reputation because of two idiot colts and what do snips and snails get in return for brining a dangerous creature into town that could have gotten ponies killed, they get freakin mustaches.

this is why i think boast busters is one of the weakest episodes of the show even worst than griffon brush off
