The great thing for me about having Discord back on-screen again is that I get to pull even crazier screenshots from the show.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

Constantly being unpredictable is its own form of predictability. When your opponent learns to expect the unexpected, you need to mix it up a little. At that point, the last thing they'd expect is playing it straight.

Yerp. And "expecting the unexpected" doesn't even mean predicting the particulars. There comes a time when "we couldn't possibly predict that" starts becoming par for the course. It may still invoke a challenge but it doesn't bring that feeling of awed/angered surprise anymore.

And if you stretch the mastermind trope too much, even frustration can wear thin, leaving only apathy behind. Last thing you want is your new dastardly move being met with indifference, or a resigned "here we go again".

This very feeling is what happened to Q in Star Trek, particularly in voyager, after a while the crew just sighed and asked what it was he wanted this time.

I laughed in Lower Decks when the crew just tell Q to bugger off because they don't even care anymore. XD

On the other hand, a new dastardly move being met with no more response than a resigned "here we go again" could be the start of a confused, distraught villain's path back to the Light Side. Or the cause of their Ultimate Tantrum of Universal Annihilation, either way.

And this is why I will forever hold that the most chaotic neutral of all beings is Puck, from Gargoyles. A trickster fae who came full circle to disguising himself as the most boring straight-man assistant ever devised and living the role every second he could, because it was the funniest thing he could possibly think of!

I just realized that Discord's room looks like half the decorated homes in Animal Crossing. XD

Nah, more like Animal Jam dens.

Today on "none of these words should make sense together": "You played chicken with six semi-sentient magical artifacts that are full of what is basically your antiparticle."

Oh, but what fun is there in making sense?

when you could make pantrees? Those are trees that are shaped like pans, not actual pantries 'cause that would just be silly!
