King Sombra by fimoman King Sombra by fimoman
Seriously, ever since he first showed up as a rumoured season 3 spoiler on EqD, he's been sorta fascinating to me. Is he a villain? Is he a side character? A Big Bad? A 'dragon'? A mook?

And what about his name? I know the fanon guys on Derpibooru are calling him Crystallion, but what's his real name?

Not to mention that so far, all we've seen of him canon is a mugshot, no body or anything. If it means finding out just who, or what, the hell he is, then it just makes me wish season 3 would hurry up and premiere already!

EDIT: Well, another season 3 preview video has popped up at the NY Comic Con. Apparently this guy is named King Sombra, and he was the ruler of the Crystal Empire at one time. We still don't know what he properly looks like though.

Well, turns out I was pertty far-off with this guy. No claws, no tatters, no shadowy mists around his legs, no lion tail. Turns out he was just a very....VERY, corrupted unicorn.

He looks a lot like a Kirin, which is a hybrid of a dragon and a unicorn. Which would explain the sharp teeth and long horn, Kirin's are known to have long horns. The tail is EXACTLY what a Kirin's tail looks like. He also has the Lizard like eyes.

He's a villian. Apparently he's a vampire.

He's the pony equivalent of LotR's Sauron.

Well, looks like we all got it wrong again! According to Meghan McCarthy and Nayuki, it's not Somber, but Sombra. FYI, that's Spanish and Portuguese for 'Shadow'. Inb4 he has a Spanish accent.

Hard to believe that King Somber was the ruler of the Crystal Kingdom.

They also say he's an alicorn so he should have wings too, interesting

Who's 'they' exactly? Because I haven't heard anything about him being an alicorn.

Inspectornills Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
huh, maybe I was wrong, only fellow bronies seem to say he's an alicorn, however, its not too far off to think he would be one since most leader figures like the princesses are alicorns, why not the king figures?

He does not look like it. Remember that the Queen resembles a winged-unicorn, but she is not one.

20 bits says he's the latest vessel for whatever possessed Princess Luna and turned her into Night Mare Moon. This begs the question: was he tricked into becoming what he is today, or did he willingly let himself be corrupted?

Or maybe he's not the vessel. Maybe he IS what corrupted Luna!

Maybe, but I think that would be something that would come later in a later season, or at least in a two-parter at the end of season 3.

Can't say I've heard that name for him before. Thus far I've only seen Crystallion, Tyranny and Lord Donut Steel.

Thanks for the like, though.
