The Storm King

  • Let's get this storm started! [to himself] Ooh, hey, that's good. I should trademark that.


Princess Celestia: "Tempest", is it? How may we help you?
Tempest Shadow: Oh, I'm so glad you asked. How about we start with your complete and total surrender?
Twilight: Hi there. Princess of Friendship. Not exactly sure what's going on, but I know we can talk things out.
Tempest Shadow: Oh, goody. All four Princesses. Here's the deal, ladies. I need your magic. Give it up nicely, please, or we make it difficult for everyone.
Princess Celestia: And why should we cower before you? There's one of you and hundreds of us.
Tempest Shadow: [chuckles] I was hoping you'd choose difficult.

Applejack: What were you thinkin'? I mean, stealin' their pearl?
Twilight: [sighs] It was the only way to save Equestria.
Pinkie: Except it wasn't! The Queen was going to say yes! We did what you told us and that's what made her realize we were ponies worth saving! [gasps] Unless... You didn't really want us to show her the best time ever! You just wanted us to DISTRACT HER!
[Spike and the other ponies gasp with wide eyes]
Twilight: I never would have done it, but this isn't Equestria! We can't just dance around with con artists, make rainbooms in the sky and expect everything to work out! It's not enough! We are not enough!
Pinkie: No, Twilight. We stuck together. We were gonna get the help we needed! The only thing that stopped us... was you.
Twilight: Well, I'm doing the best I can! It's all on me. I'm the one Tempest wants. I'm the last Princess...
Pinkie: You're also the only one who doesn't trust her friends!
Twilight: [furiously] Well, maybe, I would've been better off WITHOUT FRIENDS LIKE YOU!!!
[Twilight's horn sparkles as she yells furiously at the top of her lungs. Pinkie gasps in horror as the rest of the Mane 6 are wide-eyed of what Twilight just said as they stare at her. As Fluttershy whimpers, Pinkie strides off looking hurt with tears in her eyes]
Twilight: Pinkie, I...
Pinkie: [sniffles, crying] I just can't talk to you right now.
[The rest of the ponies, except Spike, leave her, going in their own separate ways while applejack glares briefly at twilight in disappointment and fazement]

Spike: Twilight, It's OK. You'll figure it out.
Twilight Sparkle: [cries, remorsefully and shamefully] No.. I can't... I ruined everything. There's no chance to save Equestria now. [louder and harder crying] It's all my fault. [whimpers gently] Spike.....

Twilight Sparkle: I'm so sorry you felt so alone.
Tempest Shadow: I saw the truth. My "friends" abandoned me when times got tough. Looks like I'm not the only one. Face it, princess. Friendship has failed you, too.
Twilight Sparkle: Friendship didn't fail me. I failed friendship.

Rainbow Dash: Yeah. That was pretty great.
Captain Celaeno: Are you kidding me?! That was awesome!
Squabble: [squawks]
Boyle: Figured you could use a claw!
Captain Celaeno: We're on board to help you fight the Storm King! Just not on board our...actual ship.
Mullet: That crazy unicorn sunk it. But you got back our argh! And we're ready to kick some booty.
Boyle and other pirates: [laugh heartily]

[Tempest and Twilight look down at the battle]
Tempest Shadow: What?! How?!
Twilight Sparkle: [gasps with happiness] It's... It's the Magic of...
The Storm King: Yeah, yeah. Friendship, and flowers, and ponies, and bleh! I am so totally over the cute pony thing. This... ends...NOW!

Tempest Shadow: Yes, yes, you are every bit as powerful as I promised, Sire, now, restore my horn and I swear to use my magic to serve you!
The Storm King: [laughs] Who cares about your dinky little unicorn horn?!
Tempest Shadow: [shocked] But... we... we had an agreement!
The Storm King: GET WITH THE PROGRAM! I used you! It's kind of what I do!
[The Storm King blasts his staff's power towards Tempest, who avoids them, then blasts back in return for his betrayal, cause them both to fly. The Storm King crashes into the wall while starts flying towards the tornado. Twilight looks at the staff and Tempest. Seeing her being betrayed, Twilight grabs Tempest's hoof before she could be sucked into the storm]
Twilight Sparkle: Hold on!
Tempest Shadow: [surprised] Why are you saving me?
Twilight Sparkle: Because this is what friends do.
[Twilight gives a gentle smile as Tempest looks at her with liquid eyes until the magic in horn dies out and gives a sudden warmed smile just as Twilight pulls her back in]

[While the Storm King's stone body was shattered, Twilight and her friends save Tempest's and land it gently on the balcony floor. The others, except Twilight were shocked by Tempest's sacrifice]
Rainbow Dash: Whoa! I can't believe she did that!
Twilight Sparkle: [who knew Tempest had it in her] I can.
(They use the staff to turn Tempest Shadow back to normal just as she gasps for air and looks at herself, shocked that she's back to normal, then looks at Twilight and her friends. They look at her and she signs and looks back at them.
Fluttershy: Now what?
[The gang looks at each other one by one, until Twilight looks at Tempest, looking more happier]
Tempest Shadow: Now... we fix everything.
[Tempest puts the staff in the middle where Storm King placed in the first place, causing the princesses to be revived, all the magic returned to their rightful owners, and everything that was damaged to be fixed]
Princess Celestia: [gasps] Twilight!
Twilight Sparkle: Princesses! Oh!

[As the bright light fades, Spike appears on stage wearing sunglasses and holding a microphone]
Spike: [clears his throat and speaks in microphone] Fillies and gentlecolts, get ready for a little...
[Songbird Serenade appears on front stage with her wings over her face until she unfolds them]
Spike: Songbird Serenade!
[The crowd cheers for her as she makes an announcement]
Songbird Serenade: And now, to celebrate the fact that we're all still here in one piece, give it up for Princess Twilight and her friends!
[The spotlight turns to Twilight and her five friends, as well as their new friends Skystar, Capper, Celaeno, and her crew]
Code Red: All right! Way to go, guys!
[Photo Finish take their picture with her camera]
Bulk Biceps: Yeah! Ha ha ha ha!
[Celestia, Luna, and Cadance bows to Twilight, who bows to them. The spotlight on Twilight and her friends fades and turns Songbird Serenade. As she sings her song Rainbow, Rainbow Dash and Celaeno hoof/fist bump, Rarity gives Capper a new cape and hat]
Capper: Ooh.
Rarity: And perfection. [places the hat on Capper who curtsies]
[Pinkie Pie and Skystar hug and laugh just as Skystar sees her mother Novo and some of the other seaponies, now all back in their hippogriff forms, just like Skystar]
Skystar: Mom!
[Skystar runs up to her mother and hugs her. Novo gives a sly and serious but also easy face on her daughter]
Novo: You are so grounded.
[Novo laughs cheerful as Skystar makes a speechless and chargin suck up face]

[After looking at Songbird Serenade smile and fly off, Twilight looks at the background, looking surprised and puzzled as she sees Tempest looking sad and walking away. As Tempest starts to leave, Twilight flies over and Tempest stops sensing her presence.]
Tempest Shadow: That's one thing that never changes around here. The party.
Twilight Sparkle: Well, I hope you'll stay. More friends are definitely merrier.
Tempest Shadow: [looking at her broken horn] But, um... my horn.
Twilight Sparkle: You know, your horn is pretty powerful, just like the pony it belongs to.
Tempest Shadow: [looking much more happy] I did tell you I wanted to show everypony in Equestria what I could do, right?

[final lines]
Pinkie: Nice touch, Tempest!
Tempest: [starting to feel embarassed] Actually, that's not my real name.
[the others come to her and Pinkie jumps up to her, very curious]
Pinkie: Oooh! What is it?!
[As Pinkie puts her ear up, Tempest comes close to her and whispers]
Tempest: It's "Fizzlepop Berrytwist".
[Pinkie becomes starstruck by these words starts to gasp out loud happily as big bright blue stars appear on her eyes before rushing up to Fizzlepop and put her hoove around her shoulder]
Pinkie: Okay. That is the most awesome name EVER!
[Fizzlepop and the rest of the gang are pleased as the movie ends]
