Macbeth the Usurper

TFOS and MLP

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is, perhaps, the most perfect implementation of Teenagers From Outer Space that I've ever seen.

For example, we can easily summarize the "race" types as:
  • Pony
  • Nearly a Pony (pegasi, unicorns)
  • Not Very Nearly a Pony (griffon)
  • Real Weirdie (baby dragon)
Each show begin with a short first act that sets up the game, then the characters proceed to train wreck the plot.

In fact, all you need to add to the game is the special power called "magic."

Now, let's go over characters.

Big Macintosh - Superstrong
Twilight Sparkle - Magic, Teleport
Rainbow Dash - Fly, Superspeed
Spike - Breath Fire
Applejack - Toughness
Fluttershy - Fly

I don't have the full list in front of my, so I can't do an exact match of powers. Still, I can get a huge percentage of the characters with stock powers. That's not bad.
