My Little Pony Villain WHAT by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL My Little Pony Villain WHAT by BLACK-HEART-SPIRAL
Copy/paste from FA! It's where I get my groove on most, yo. Also, download for full view if you want.

Ah yes. Back in the day when cartoons had villains...even the cartoons with the cutesy little characters that seemed nothing bad could happen to them.

Anyway, if anyone picks up on WHO this is without me saying, huge kudos to you! I am sure quite a few of your DID watch the old cartoon series back in the 80s...so hopefully he does spark some memory.

And yes, this IS a MY LITTLE PONY Villain. A real one. There were actually a few of them in the series, and some were creepier then others- but this guy takes the cake. Well, maybe him and the rock dog. God, that rock dog scared me when I was a kid...OH, and I can't forget the Centaur demon guy from the first pilot episode. And maybe Catrina. Oh yeah, I went THERE.

I dunno I kinda went into a magical hole of craziness after watching that old Chipmunk movie and wanted to do some old fan art type stuff. Gonna get back on my horrible train of madness momentarily. OH YOU KNOW.

Walk back down memory lane, hope you enjoyed.

And look! Semi sorta background thing! Woo.

I wish they would do villains this bad-ass in modern cartoons... Even the boys cartoons don't have that good of villains!

IMO, the badies in the old cartoon are the only redeeming value of those. I strongly dislike older generations of MLP while I absolutely love the modern generation, but even I must admit they need more villains like this. Tirek was a good start.

I know this comment was made a while ago but still.

Grogar was a ram/goat villains form the Generation 1 of MLP. He ruled the ancient city of Tambelon that had been banished into the shadows only to return every five hundred years. He was a necromancers who's power was tied to a large bell. He ruled over the city and his subjects were Troggles (pig men) who used magical staffs that created cages; Grogar ruled over them through fear and even ordered them when to celebrate, forcing them to dance and cheer while they in truth were terrified. Upon his return he managed to take over all of Ponyland, the Grundles new kingdom and defeated the Flutter ponies; only being defeated by contrivance and his bell being damaged, leading him and his donkey servant Bray to be banished back to the shadows alone. 

I hope that helped. :)

Ah yes, Grogar. The Tyrannical ruler of Tambelon. I always like those sort of villains, the ones who come from a different time and thus have an entirely different mindset. In his case he was some medieval warlord.

Great job depicting him. You gave him a really dynamic posture, like he's about to charge.

Grogar! He must be rebooted in in the new series, it would be epic. I somehow see him being remade as a very large character, maybe as big as Celestia or a little bigger.

Dumb question: what kind of a villain was Grogar? What was he after?

:iconblack-heart-spiral:

If I remember correctly, he wanted to enslave all the ponies and take over ponyland via Tambelon, his kingdom that only appeared from another dimension every 100 or it could have been 1000 years. It's been a long time since i've seen the episode. I just know it freaked me out as a kid as he's a pretty scary thing.

The episode with Grogar was really awesome... like some people below me said it would be cool if FiM brought him back... as long as they dont ruin him... and Id prefer he stay just as villainous.

Oh yeah. I've be pretty pissed off if they did bring him in and just ruined him. UGRSHghsfgfdf. Really, I could see him turning Luna somehow back into Nightmare Moon. I mean, he is super bad guy. Well, him and Tirac...as long as they don't find the Rainbow of Light. :I

I was half-way joking, but yes, the Elements of Harmony effect does seem to be very much inspired by The Rainbow of Light.

I wouldn't put it past them to do that. Would be nice nod to have it and the Rainbow of Darkness but it would go over the heads of new people to MLP.

Consider that in the pilot of FIM, they use the equivalent of the Rainbow of Light to defeat a baddie who wanted to make the night last forever. A pretty obvious homage to the "Rescue at Midnight Castle" special that started G1.

Eh, not so much to me. It was dumbed down a bit. I'd rather see Tirac reprise his roll. Nostalgia bomb would be nice.

idk, he doesnt seem to me like he'd be the one to turn Luna into Nightmare Moon. he just doesnt seem related to that situation enough. maybe it'd better if he just did something else bad, something original to FiM but perhaps similar to what he did on the G1 show.

That is a great drawing. Grogar was one of the few characters that genuinely scared me as a child (the other being The Red Bull from "The Last Unicorn"), and you've done him justice here. Somehow though, as I grew up, he came to remind me of an old headmistress I used to have. It's funny how life works sometimes.

Oh gosh, the Red Bull also used to freak me out...maybe it's the horns? Can say the same for Darkness from Legend...and yet I still love those characters to this day...ahhhh craziness! Thank you as well!

For me it was more the firey, demonic appearance and real sense of malice that he gave off. He's even better in the book of The Last Unicorn than the film, although I dearly love both. Yet I don't nescessarily believe that he was evil, just being controlled.
