[My Little Pony] Twilight Sparkle died at the end of season 3


Twilight Sparkle is every right-thinking person's favourite pony princess. She is clever and brave and is best at friendship and friendship-knowledge. Her ascension at the end of season 3 was a highlight for many a fan, but was this event all it seems? It is in fact more likely that instead of becoming a princess, Twilight Sparkle died.

This may sound shocking, but the evidence is plain for all to see. For a start, Twilight Sparkle clearly dies on screen. In attempting to fix the Cutie Mark conundrum, she vapourises herself entirely, leaving only ashes behind. The imagery we see is afterlife imagery - Twilight can be seen ascending to heaven towards a bright light, and then meeting God (Celestia) in a white, heavenly realm to the sound of an angel's choir. Celestia then tells Twilight it is time for her to have her reward, a common metaphor for the afterlife.

Tellingly, at this point Twilight gains wings. Some have believed this to be part of a process in which she is made an 'alicorn', but Celestia has not shown great skill in genetic manipulation before and Twilight's previous deeds were surely more worthy of deification. No, more likely is that these are angel wings given to Twilight now she is deceased in a terrible magical accident.

Like an angel, Twilight can now fly and sit on clouds, as well as having increased magical power. It is unknown if she has also gained the ability to play the harp, though this is likely.

Does Twilight then return to Equestria? The evidence says no. Her friends are left behind to mourn her whilst Twilight begins to engage with her 'heavenly reward'. It is possible that Twilight does not realise that she is dead, having misunderstood Celestia's kind words. Perhaps Celestia should have been more brusque with her favourite pupil, but admonishing Twilight for carelessly atomising herself may have caused more upset to the little pony.

The idea that season 4 is set in some sort of afterlife for Twilight explains much. As an angel, Twilight is no longer able to harness the Elements of Harmony and so she explains this away in a fever-dream about magic trees. There are no more friendship reports, as Twilight's friends are too busy mourning her to learn new lessons about friendship. Tellingly, when Pinkie Pie's sister comes to visit, she looks nothing like the sisters we know exist. Twilight knows Pinkie Pie has a sister but not what she looks like, causing her to create her mental image of Pinkie's sister in the afterlife.

Is the fantastical battle with Tirek and subsequent growing of a magic tree-castle a sign that Twilight is able to reshape her world with more ease, or could it have been a result of the devil himself invading heaven and trying to attack one of Celestia's angels?

Whatever the case, it is clear that Twilight's 'ascension' was a one-way affair. Presumably the people of Ponyville will be much more careful with magic spells in the future, lest they end up like poor Twilight. And will Twilight ever find out her fate, or will she forever live in her carefully-imagined utopia?

  1. Pretty similar to a theory I made a video about a while back, but I hadn't thought about everything after season three being all in Twilight's mind. Nice!

    4. You saw that she returned to Equestria. She just had got wings. You saw her interacting with the other ponies, she wasn't dead, as in Season 9 she harnessed the Elements of Harmony against king sombra.

  2. I like the idea of Twilght being an angel but... there are episode after season 3 which don't focus on Twilight so if she didn't return to Equestria, how do explain the non-Twilight centered episode that followed the season 3 finale. I prefer RLYoshi's "Angel Twilight" theory. Also, angels CAN return to Earth and don't just STAY in heaven without being able to return. It is clearly seen in "All Dogs Go to Heaven". Also, Candence wasn't originally a alicorn either and SHE was alive before Twilight was "killed". Also, you call a FLASHBACK about the Tree of Harmony a FEVER DREAM? They are two difference thing! Sorry but... RLYoshi is better because it features the "angel ascending to Earth from heaven" concept.

    5. It is I, Future Man to tell you your theory is wrong. sorry. Season 4-9 and comic season 10 shows you are wrong. The fact there are episode that are not centered around her, her whole dream afterlife is wrong. Now she could have died and return in Jesus kind of way. She died for pony kinds sin's and return as the savior. Christ Imagery is every where.

  3. Just to be honest, I don’t hate the whole “Twilight’s now an angel” theory just… the possibility that she never returned to Equestria. Okay, let’s debunk this theory bit by bit. Let’s start with the first bit:

    “As an angel, Twilight is no longer able to harness the Elements of Harmony and so she explains this away in a fever-dream about magic trees.”

    Okay, the Tree of Harmony was first seen in a flashback and how does that work? I mean, MatPat pointed out that it’s impossible to explain the cut-scene Mini-Games – the supposed “flashbacks” – using the FNAF Dream Theory and the flashbacks that Twilight saw when she drunk Zecora’s potion is just the same. And are you sure that she isn’t able to harness the Elements of Harmony. Let me bring up Equestria Girls! You see, it is comfirmed the EG is canon and guess what happens in that movie. The human version of the Mane 6 – despite not being the same characters as their pony counterparts – are somehow able to wield to power of the Elements of Harmony including Twilight. This happened when the magic of Twilight’s tiara hits them and it was able to unite with “the ones who help created it” – also known as the other Elements of Harmony. Next up is there explanation for Maud Pie:

    “Tellingly, when Pinkie Pie's sister comes to visit, she looks nothing like the sisters we know exist. Twilight knows Pinkie Pie has a sister but not what she looks like, causing her to create her mental image of Pinkie's sister in the afterlife.”

    Really, that’s you explanation? How do you explain “Heartbreakers” which doesn’t feature Twilight but does feature Maud? Way a go, theorist! So therefore you have: Twilight maybe an angel but she still returned to Equestria!

  4. Well damn surprising! So shining and cadence never married, flurry was never born, cheese sandwich never existed, maud is like a hologram, Tirek=Devil Celestia=God, Equestria Girls Never happened, The mane six became the mane 5, my oc will never get into the show(lol wtf did I say that?), Windy Whistles existed but never to twily, Starlight never even existed, I have so many questions. Season 4-8 Does not Compute at fucking all. I’m at a loss.

    1. Are you actually kidding me? Its so clear by now in 2019 that this theory is absolute rubbish. Twilight did NOT die. She is NOT an angel. Everything she 'imagined' is actually REAL. If you are wondering how Celestia would have turned Twilight into an alicorn,I suggest you check out the Brony Notion's video.

  11. Sorry but in my oppinion is that twilight is still a live because she just accidentally did a wrong spell. That's really normal for a unicorn an an alicorn to make a wrong spells. She became and alicorn by compliting Starswerl's spell(did I spell it right?) and her friends cutie marks are back yo normal.

  14. Twilight never died. Her friends didnt mourn, and she certanly didnt become an angel. Unlike Brony Notion's Theorys, this theory dosent have enough info to back it up, and we already know what happened. Twilight simply became an alicorn, and thats canon, there is no changing that. I would understand if this was a theor about the process of becoming an alicorn, but no. Trying to explain something that already has a Canon answer dosent count as a theory. Im not hati'n, im just stati'n.

  20. Guys this is NOT TRUE. She completes the spell and her reward is her alicirn wings. She RETURNS to equestria and with her friends. She literally can control the elements. DO NOT believe this post.

  21. Guys this is so fake. She accomplished the spell and her reward was her wings which you only get for accomplishing princess worthy deeds. Then she RETURNS to equestria with her friends and she DOES harness the elements. This is so fake

  22. totally and even if twi was dead and was an angel then there would have been no season 4,5,6,7,8 or nine because the elements would'nt have worked because every fan of the show knows that you need twi's element of magic to make the rainbow lazer that hammers down on villans cc's words not mine!also she could not be able to wear her crown it would just go through her body

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lol this is absurd.
    I have a much better theory than your lie.
    The spell doesn't go wrong, it does exactly what it is supposed to. It activates the magic between the mane 6, which allows Twilight to travel to some magical world. This magic also connects to Celestial, and brings her there too. You may be wondering, why didn't the other Mane 6 travel as well? Because the spell activates when written, and the effects are on the one who writes it. Also, Twilight's cutie mark is literally magic. And of course, when the spell's effects wear off, the writer is awarded with alicorn traits and returned to equestria.

    THERE. HOWS THAT? And before anyone asks, I wrote this on the spot, and did not get this theory from any other sources.

  37. twilight is surely not dead.

    The fact is hidden in season 4

    she just transformed into a princess like how celestia was once a regular unicorn she just

    transformed into a princess

    if she were dead then how did she transform again into a princess like celestia herself?

    celestia was not even there!

  39. if she was dead ,Princess Cadence could not have done the sunshine sunshine ladybugs awake dance to convince twilight that she was real she was captured under the castle plus when Thorax was still a black changeling when they were searching for him at the castle she convined starlight to not attack Thorax after Spike explains everything
