"One of the best ways to defeat your enemy... is to divide and conquer them, to drive them to fight and exhaust themselves in petty struggle until they are too weakened to resist you. A fortress well divided cannot even stand on their own, much less against a siege."
--- Commander Hurricane, Early Classical Equestrian Era.
"Our city came apart at the seams--guilds fought over gold and contracts, every petty noble's personal guard clashed over family squabbles, and our placcid minorities of ponies rose up in riot. It was pure chaos; anarchy incarnate.
In the end, we didn't *surrender* the city to the Equestrians, we pleaded for their aid before we were burned to the ground from within; allowed them to annex us simply for security.
And even then, we ALL knew that the divisions, the infighting...they were all orchestrated by our 'benevolent and merciful' conquerors. 'Divide and Conquer' was their game. And we lost."
--- Diary of Duke Swiftclaw, Griffon governor of the city-state of Freeport (renamed Vanhoofer) after its fall; ca. 976 LCEE (Late Classical Equestrian Era).
I'm still not really a MLP fan, but I've seen both of their two-part episodes, and they're my two face characters in the show XD Still, though, I too will have to give it to Discord, for who would win in a fight.
THAAAAAAAANK YOU here is a debate i got in to someone with a long time ago
"discord wants to mess around with the world and make it his personal playground but he never does physical contact, while chysilis wants to control it all and consume the life force of every living thing"
call me insane but sometimes i think discord has standards
Her "army" is useless Bunch of her "warriors" was beaten by six mares one of which didn't even know how to fight. PLUS Discord can make his own army any time Like "Strike Squad of Balleting Bufallos" ^_^
This wouldn't actually be much of a battle, I think. Chrysalis feeds on love, but all she'd find from Discord is trolltastic randomness. Seeing as Discord is ridiculously overpowered, he'd probably transmute her into a block of swiss cheese or something, and that'd be the end of that. Lawl.
