Ponies Replace Dragons in Skyrim Mod

image

Tremble with fear as terrifying ponies swoop through the skies of a modded Skyrim.

You kids and your quasi-ironic, gender-inclusive cartoons. Back in my day, men were men (or X-Men, more accurately), and little women watched, I don't know, Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders, or something. Nowadays, though, everyone is all over this My Little Pony reboot - even gamers! In fact, one creative fan has spearheaded an Equestrian invasion of Skyrim, the land known for its fearless Dragonborn warriors. Thanks to his new mod, Skyrim players on the PC can replace all of the game's majestic dragons with a slightly (but only slightly) less menacing Fluttershy. Bah, where's my cane?

You can thank modder "zdzichorowerzysta" for this one. Originally appearing on SkryimNexus and currently viewable on "XTremeScope's" YouTube channel, the mod changes only two things: the appearance and sounds of Skyrim's dragons. The video exhibits multiple Fluttershies soaring through the air, murmuring an unenthusiastic "yay", and cheerfully burning the rocky northlands to a charred husk. XTremeScope points out that the mod is not quite perfect, as Fluttershy still bleeds normal dragon blood, but let's be honest: Are you going to stand up to a gigantic fire-breathing pony long enough to make it bleed? Really?

The mod is available here if you want to turn your Dovahkiin loose to slay Equestria's greatest monsters. As for me, I'm going to sit here for a good, long while and scratch my head over just how popular this show has become, and why I didn't think of it first.

This thread will most likely end up a flame war over bronies vs. non bronies. Any thread that even makes a passing reference to them turn into flame wars.

Its a shame, though, it looks pretty well put together. It even arguably looks better than the macho man mod. I doubt many bronies will use it. Hurting fluttershy is akin to suggesting a genocide in some circles.

I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took a sonic rainboom to the knee.

Meh, I saw this on Memebase today...
You're a bit late to make my laugh my guts out.

Just when you thought skyrim mods couldn't get any creepier >.>. It's cool and all, but the eyes. THE EYES!

There's no better way to die in Skyrim than being roasted to death by a giant, fire-breathing Fluttershy

The fact that it is just a palette swap of Rainbow Dash (it is supposed to be Fluttershy) is disappointing.

it was bound to happen sooner or later, though >.> took longer then i thought it would

I liked the Macho Man one better.

I now retract my statement about Macho Man dragon mod being the best mod ever. This is the best mod ever! Exept now I'm going to feel horrible every time I kill a Flutterdragon.

As do I, nothing better than being killed by an epic "YEAH!".

Ok, i know someone who would possibly squee at this.

Also my OCD on the subject is forcing me to point out that most, if not all of Skyrims dragons are actually wyverns.

Wikipeida on wyverns:

Winged reptilian creature with a dragon's head, two legs (sometimes none), and a barbed tail.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyvern

And if youre going to try catch me out with that some of them stand on thier wings too, the Monster Hunter playerbase has already dubbed those pseudowyverns. Thats false-wyverns for those without a handy dictionary.

They still have the shadows of normal dragons..obviously illusion magic is at work here

From the Jace Arveduin Encyclopedia of Junk

Dragon: Any big ass lizardesque monster that has the abilities to spew deadly substances from it's maw and is likely about to eat you. Not to be confused with their smaller cousin, the worm (wurm, wyrm, etc)

Great, Discord's got out again. Someone get Twilight Sparkle, or a bag of quick-dry cement and some scenery for Discord to chew while it sets.

That was on when I was in high school. Gods, do I feel old all of a sudden.

Bah, where's my cane?

I'll loan you one of mine.

(EDIT: Dammit, that would've worked better if the Escapist's own images weren't 404ing.... Added the image to the right.)

WAIT. SO I CAN KILL THEM NOW!? Holy fuck, this is the best day of my life! QUICK! Someone go make a gore mod that ramps it up to levels that would make the lead designers of Mortal Kombat go green, and make it easier to engage finishing moves! Finally, my hatred of this piece of shit show can be fully realized!

It's a pretty neat mod in its own way, and I like ponies as much as the next person, but...

...the creepy, lifeless 'yay...'

...the way she drags her forelegs around (obviously because it's based on the actual dragon puppet, which doesn't have forelegs, but still...) on the ground...

This is honestly one of the creepiest and most unsettling mods I've seen in a long time. Well executed, though!

...*hides*

I'm not sure if I could slay something so adorable.

I never understood this meme... and at this point, I don't think I ever want to.

All I have to say is: What the hell took the bronies so long?

I suppose thye're doing okay, given no creation kit and I haven't heard rumblings regarding the inevitable porno mod, but still...

So what you are saying is.... I can shoot arrows into a giant Fluttershy, jump on her head and beat her in the face with my fire mace before jumping off and stealing her soul for later use.

Best. Mod. Ever.

Yes! Anything that lets me kill ponies is a win in my book.

Dammit, now I have decide if I want to keep my Macho Man Randy Savage dragons or switch to this awesome reskin! (hey modders, can I have Macho Pony Fluttershy Savage dragons please?)

There is really no reason why this mod should exist, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

* Reading Post * Ha I love Monster Hunter, I think I'd recognize a wyvern if I saw one. * Looks up Skyrim Dragon images again * SON OF A BITCH HE'S RIGHT! I could've sworn they had arms and other dragon like things last time I checked.

Also I can't use this mod. The guilt would overwhelm me.

Dear God, WHY?!

On the other hand, I CAN kill them... Muwhahahaha.

This will please both parties. It's a pony mod of Fluttershy (well, Rainbow Dash mixed with Fluttershy colors but still) so that's a plus for the people who adore the show. As for the others who despise the show, now they can go kill a pony dragon. It's a win/win situation. But you know what, even the ones that like the show will end up killing the Fluttershy dragon.. because they'll just have to unless they uninstall the mod.

Also, I know the links are there in the article but I want to post the video here as a shortcut for anyone to see.

I thought the whole brony cult was the pinnacle of creepy, but this just takes is to a whole new level :S

Those ... creatures, I can't unsee it!

Y'know what. I 100% regret posting the original text here. I posted that in a brief fit of offendedness, but I really shouldn't have. Forgive me.

O.T: Those eyes are what will haunt my nightmares. I mean wow are they dead doll eyes.

This makes me want to throw sixty of my dollars at Bethesda just so they can give me Skyrim in return.

And then I can pummel pony dragons with fists made of steel.

First ever mod I've ever liked. Its not buy a PC worthy but still.

On another note I can just imagine her circling above screaming: "you're...going to LOVE ME!!!"

I would install this, but I would never get any further with shouts because I couldn't bring myself to kill Fluttershy.

Diamond Tiara, on the other hand...

Maybe that might make the dragons hard to kill, at last.
