2 Spike episodes in 1 season?AMAZING!
This... should be good.
super awesome AMAZING
inb4 SPIKE QUEST
Am I the only one who immediately thought Brodyquest? xD
This sounds awesome, sure it's accurate?
Will he find out he truly belongs with twi or will he still leave for real one day? I hope we get some more on him and Rarity too.
First thought SKYRIM twighlight!!!
RPG mashups and parodies incoming
I wonder if the other Mane 6 will show up, or if this episode will be entirely Spike focused with a different setting
Spike is now best Erderick.
Why must time move so slow? This sounds awesome and ay waaant it noow.
I wonder what the last 5 episodes will be like
wtf Gift of the Night Fury
Dragon Quest games = GREAT!!Spike/Spike episode = BOO!our opinion, don't cause a childish flame war.
I'll admit, while I didn't hate them, I personally wasn't too impressed with the previous two Spike-centered episodes.Third times the charm? I'm at least intrigued by the description.
Spike going to Skyrim?!
After today, it will be 2 weeks before we see a new episode
this is going to be epic cant wait
This could either be deep and fascinating, or a bit cliché. Time will tell, but it sure sounds interesting.
sounds promising! I usually like the world-building episodes :)
Spike is best baby dragon :) he is one of my fav characters even tho so many people seem to not :P
How long before Square Enix sues?
Sounds like a great idea for a fanfic. Oh wait...
Wait, wait. Is this actually called "Dragon Quest"? That's awesome.
-=Dragon Quest=-I heard of an announcement of the Great Dragon Migration, and thought it would be a good way to find out who I really am. With my things packed, and me succesfully out of Twilight's House, I head up north to join my brothers.------------------------------------------------() Head North to meet Dragons at Great Dragon Migration(*) Sneak out of Twilight's house without being discovered(*) Fake Sleep until Twilight Sparkle is fully asleep(*) (Optional) Pack Scroll Paper, ink, and bird feather(*) Pack things and hide things under bed
This looks to be a very in-depth episode...with a lot of history on the dragons in Equestria.
How exciting! I'd imagine the Mane 6 will be saddened by this turn of events. Especially Twilight.
Wait, wasn't this was a video game or something...
This actually sounds like a pretty awesome episode! Im really looking forward to seeing some more dragons!
Sounds like an interesting episode. Unfortunately it's going to completely destroy the "It takes a Village" back-story, but if handled well, it could be awesome. I hope we can see more of dragon culture and maybe learn about about Spike's clan.
Where is my Scootaloo episodes x_x?
Oh wow, just by the summary alone, I know that I'm going to love this episode.It's gonna be really fun to learn about what the Great Dragon Migration is about and more about Dragon's in general, and the fact that it's Spike centered makes it all the better for me!I'm totally stoked to see this episode, it's gonna be a tough wait. XD
This sounds like it's gonna be good. It's good to have another Spike episode.
A serious Spike episode? Sounds amazing!
So Spike having an existentialist crisis and making a life-changing journey? Sounds promising.
I was hoping for another Spike episode before season two ended! Seriously, two episodes of best dragon in a single season makes me a happy camper. <3Thanks, DHX. DON'T LET ME DOWN! DX(PS: I know you guys won't. ;D)
@slifertheskydragon Oh my Celestia your right, shits gonna go down!
@INVDAER-GRIM Eenope.wavI can't wait for this episode! Everyone quick! Make "SPIKEQUEST" videos!
*takes off glasses* Mother of God...
He was dragonborn, now he must quest with dragons.This has potential. We know almost nothing about dragon society or Spike's role in it.SO MANY QUESTIONS ANSWERED!I almost hope that Hasbro flexes it's "We hold the rights to D&D LOL" muscles for this one.
@Bronyhubi don't get why people get bothered by canon destroying fanfic back stories. so fucking what? are you living and dying by that backstory? If so, you have bigger problems than canon steppin on your toes.
might not really guys, might not really maybe...
All I'm saying is he better fight some slimes.
Okay, nopony else has said it so I'll get it out of the way: Spike has to find himself.I'm sorry, but you know this will be a common theme in fanart going into it.
Fanfic content +17
In the Crusaders' clubhouse, Scootaloo silently wept. "Why doesn't anypony want to see me?" she asked. The maps, charts, and other crusading paraphernalia did not respond.Slowly, she pulled the newspapers over her shivering body and cried herself to sleep.
Eh, I'm not too excited for this. I mean, we all know that Studio B will make it great, but... Eh. I guess I don't value Spike as a character. Still interested to see how this comes out, though. Hooves crossed! (Somehow...)
Before I post my thoughts, I gotta say:Yeaaaaaaaaah, baby, yeaaaaaaaaah!!!!Okay, I'm done with that part. I had a feeling we'd get another Spike episode before the second season ended. I would have been surprised, if that were to not happen. This may actually turn out to be even better than the last one. Like any other episode, though, I don't want to get my expectations too high, but dang, as a Spike fan, that's going to be really hard for me to do. I seriously cannot wait for this one.
If someone doesn't mod a Dragon Quest game to have ponies now, I'll be disappoint.
Personally I love Spike. He's never been used properly in a story line in my opinion, so here's hoping now in the cartoon's genesis they have something planned that'll be great! I have high hopes for this episode! Oh, if only Lauren Faust was still around! She'd make sure Spike got a proper session in character development!
Another great synopsis. Now the wait...
Another Spike episode? Interesting. I was a bit disappointed by the last episode I expected background information from (Hearth's Warming Eve), so I'm not getting my hopes up in that respect. Spike could really do with an awesome episode, though, so let's hope it's a great one.
Wow, some more Spike. Spike has certainly been getting a lot more airtime lately. Which is nice. And Dragon Migration? Well... that's interesting. They migrate. lol
Spike doesn't see that it's such a great thing... because he meets the Dragonborn?
IM SO FREAKING EXCITED ja;sfjalskjf i cosplay spike annd....yesss...just yesss. hopefully we'll find out more about him and why he doesnt have wings. migration sounds like FLYING to me :3
Incoming Brody Quest song!
looks like Twi is gonna need a new royal serf... or Owl-delicious is getting quite a coupla extra chores
First initial thought?"Square Enix better put Spike in the next Dragon Quest game now."
Awwww, here I was hoping for a new Dragon Quest game with a Friendship Is Magic theme....Nintendo, SqureEnix, get to that!
Adrian Brody, Adrian Bro-dy...
Well now, this is unexpected. I'll still keep on my "expect the worst" side of the street, as there is a myriad of ways this can be ruined with rampant silliness, but an episode with great worldbuilding potential like that is something I didn't expect to come up.
Spike?Possibly meeting other dragons?Anyone getting any G1 vibes just now?
I sense some extreme world building in preparation for the Cadence episodes!Hopefully the next 3 after this will elaborate some more on Equestria and the lands surrounding it before everypony gets whisked away to Alicorn land for the wedding.
well this sounds like the best thing ever.
O: This sounds so epic. Mass dragons? World building? Soul searching? YES PLEASE.
Wow, more Spike episodes, awesome! He's one of my favorite characters... shame Scootaloo has yet to get an episode for herself though :(
More lore please. So much want.
Wow that sounds great!
Watch out for slimes on yer Dragon Quest, Spike.
Well quite frankly, when I hear the name 'Dragon Quest', I think of the game, Dragon Quest.
A slime draws near. Command?
Hmm... with only 3 episodes left after this one (Unless a 27 and 28 do exist). I'll put my bets on these for the final 3 episodes before the finale.- 1 Fluttershy Episode- 1 Scootaloo Episode- 1 Princess Celestia Episode
It's getting better and better!
@Killsteal_WolfI'm fairly sure somewhere someone said that the finale was a two-parter. Unless you counted that as the Celestia Episode.
Sounds like a great episode!And Seth, can you please post source links to images when you use them? Having to hit Google on a complete lack of sleep is not fun :)http://bricu.deviantart.com/art/Are-you-my-mother-271234617
Oh god, dead fanfictions.....dead Spike origins fanfictions everywhere...they were killed by canon....
Those fictions had a good life but it's time to move on to reality!
Whoa, I can't wait for this one! Sounds interesting! And I do love Spike episodes. :3 Woohoo!
@Killsteal_WolfUh, since this is episode 21, that means five more episodes. If there is a 27 and 28, then seven more.
Does canon rly kill fanfiction? If its good I say it'll never die!
Whaaaaaaaaaaaa OMG that sounds way too awesome O.OWhy must we wait a month for this?! Nooooooo
@Yu KigonoTrue, but we already know that the finale is a two parter, and it seems likely that it's the Princess Cadance episodes. So, if there is 26 episodes, there are 3 more normal episodes after this Spike one. 5 if there are 28 episodes.
An opportunity for a fascinating insight into the culture and history of dragons in Equestria... This will be interesting.
Can't wait to see this, will be interesting to see the dragons lifestyles.
I think i read a fanfic like this once ;D
My birthday episode! Thank you so much Hasbro/the Hub! :D
Actually this reminds me of a G1 episode where Spike goes off to join a horde of dragons to learn more about being a dragon...but discovers the dragons were complete assholes.
Fist time travel, now this?What will the two parter finale be like?
The sound that came out of my mouth was not human.Oh god yes.
@Flutteryay No, not at all. Like, literally, the first thing I thought of when I saw the title was "Brodyquest?!?"This is going to be awesome.
I just watched Napoleon Dynamite and -- YUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
@Mike... ...by which I mean this episode sounds like win.
Here's hoping there's a dragon named "Vicious"
this could be an awsome ep!
This has so much potential to be a deep and profound episode with so much great emotion.I'm gonna hype up for this one!
I really hope that Twilight has a good sized role in this one, or at least Spike's relationship with her does. I'm really jonesing for more central cast interactions this season.
Dragonquest learn to become a warrior to kill SlimesDragon Quest Spike in a "videogame" like quest.Man still no Scootaloo episode.
Aw, no St. Patri- er, Ale and Shamrocks Day episode?
@KimmerzThis reminded me of that episode too, except I only heard of that G1 episode, I never saw it.
This kinda reminded of Sintel, not quite the same but, have a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRsGyueVLvQ
As the developer of the fan-game Spikes Quest, this nearly gave me a heart attack when I saw it xD
This sounds good!
I bet after this episode airs, there's gonna be vids with HTTYD music...
This sounds good...and at the risk of being killed violently, a bit like G1 episode if I remember correctly.
seriously another spike episode.. not even a scootaloo episode? poor scoot
Hm. Interesting. Hope it doesn't come off like a dragon version of the Wonderbolts.
Yes more DragonsThank you Hasbro!
I just saw what we have so far for this episode and wow. It's amazing. Spike dies!
@HarwickYou and I both, but considering what the vast majority of Season 2 has been like, I'm not convinced it's in the cards. Like it or not, they have chosen to make this season a much more individual-focused affair, at the deep expense of interpersonal relationships and the mutual growth the characters experience after overcoming conflicts (Season 1, by contrast, was almost nothing BUT this). Make no mistake, Season 2 as it stands has good value, but...it just isn't the same. The general approach they chose to take this season is perfectly legitimate, but ultimately inferior in my opinion. As far as this episode goes, though, we shall see. I would love to be surprised.
Omg YES, We're finally gonna possibly see more dragons that aren't adult age!
Spike is on a dragon quest to understand his true concepts about himself? Make it so!!!! ^_^
That sounds like the episode from 1987 called "Spike's Search".To quote wikipedia, in that episode Spike goes in search of his roots and joins a dragon horde, but finds he does not agree with their bullying ways.
Excited because it's a Spike episode, a little worried because it might interfere with my fanfuc idea. :I
This sounds like it could be an awesome adventure episode
joins the migration only to be murdered by the Dragonborn. Definitely NOT what he needs.
In their tongue...spike is Dovahkiin...DRAGONBORN!!
Yeah, the title isn't implying ANYTHING...AT ALL...I like Dragon Quest... as a sidenote... which has nothing to do with the title of that episode... at all...
This sounds AWESOME. :D
My first thought was 'Oh, It Takes a Village part 2, assuming in my head canon that the Secret of My Excess was part 1' and then I thought...whatever.. it sounds AWESOME!
This episode will actually be named "Dragon Warrior" in North America.
OMG!!!!Dragon info! i needed more dragon info!!!*fluttergasms*
Please tell me there is going be JRPG references in this episode. Especially Dragon Quest ones.
Please let us leave Equestria and see another land!
yes a spike episode yes now all we need is spike to hook up with rarity and ill be the worlds happiest brony yes spike yesssssssss
Holy crap! Character development! Just what I wanted! YAY!
BUCK YEAH SPIKE EPISODE. Loving the character development lately!! :D
Are they seriously calling the episode Dragon Quest? O_oAfter references to classic movies, references to classic video games... this keeps getting better...
Then spike becomes alduin the world eaterand mane 6 become dragon born's
@KrizakYour comment wins.Seriously though, the title is "Dragon Quest" and people immediately think Brody or Skyrim and not... Dragon Quest?I'm getting too old for this.
Episode 22: Final FantasyEpisode 23: Chrono TriggerEpisode 24: Pocket MonsterEpisode 25: Earthbound
There must be a Skyrim reference... maybe another dragon will say Fus Ro Dah.
Already been done! "Spike's Search" from the G1 series My Little Pony & Friends. :p
A fan of the Dragon Quest games amongst Studio B? YESSSSS.
I think this is going to be the first episode with a reference to a videogame. And the actual name, too! (Even if it was called "Dragon Warrior" in the US until 2005.)This reminds me of a fanfiction... But I can't remember what it was called...Man, time travel and dragons... So much to look forward to!
@D. McCarthyYou basically just summed up my personal RPG catalog from my teen years. If only they did this... especially an Earthbound referencing episode, if only the in title.As for the episode, I love how B-list characters have been getting this extra attention. Spike really deserves it to, being the most active with the Mane 6.
Spike you are Dovahkiin. Dragonborn!
I find this kind of funny and depressing because my Lit. has been studying Chris McCandless.
The title isn't the only video game reference here I'm sure we will have a Spyro moment or 2 in it too.
<sees so many people talk about rpgsAm I the only one who first thought of Brodyquest?
Great dragon migration. They're off to start a new world.
Dragon Quest? Thats a game aint it?
His quest coming to a close, Spike approached the fortress that held the whereabouts of the final location of his mission. After this, Spike hoped, he would understand what kind of dragon he is, and discover his true destiny."It's a little weird," Spike said aloud to himself, "This is my last stop before I go home, and they call it 'The End'."But then again," the young dragon said as he looked around at the strange, sharply-angled landscape around him, "That's not as weird as some of the things I've seen..."
As long as Derpy never gets eye surgery and Rainbow Dash doesn't do anything heterosexual, I don't mind the occasional fanfic being made obsolete. World building is awesome! And with that, I'm going into a state of hibernation for the next month to avoid having to wait for this episode.
Jossed fanfiction never dies. It just becomes alt-history.
Dragon Quest? I love those games.
OMG ANOTHER SPIKE EPISODE! AND MORE STUFF ABOUT DRAGONS IN EQUESTRIA!This is the GREATEST DAY EVER!
dammit! they just ruined my fanfic! unless I can write around it! till then.....
Why am I suddenly put in mind of the "Cow and Chicken" episode when Cow decided to try herding?
@Hunter Moore i always have to work hard to find fellow Spike lovers.
An episode full of dragons?It's been awhile since Spike showed up..so we're due for some dragon cuteness.
@Twifight Sparkill At last someone who understands me.
@FlutteryayNope, you weren't alone.
MFW I just started replaying Dragon Quest 8 last night.If there is an Akira Toriyama art design reference in this episode I will Fluttersquee.
The mangaka of HunterxHunter will love this episode.
Oh man this sounds awesome
Yaya a Spike episodelove his episodes
Seth really really like dragons like in the way that some of us like ponies *wink*
I now officially love Hasbro forever, simply for the episode's name. Now if only we could get slimes confirmed as canon Equestrian fauna... :P
The only correct thing to think of first is the classic game series put out by the Enix side of Square Enix before their merger. It came around LONG before Brody.However, I'm really looking forward to this episode. I predict that by the end of the episode, we'll see references to:-Dragon Quest (Slimes! Slimes everywhere! GET THAT METAL ONE!!!)-Dungeons & Dragons (I mean COME ON!!! It's Hasbro. It's practically BEGGING to be done.)-Skyrim (I can only imagine a dragon shouting would have to be in it)-Something to do with Akira Toriyama (going back to the DQ thing)-Someone will mention to a dragon about being a warrior (a sly shout out to Dragon Quest being known as Dragon Warrior in North America for a while; I still have my original copy of Dragon Warrior 1 for the NES)-Some sort of surprise Magic: the Gathering reference somehow (LOTS of dragons and other cool shit that Hasbro ALSO owns lol)Looking forward to this, an episode that comes after an episode that has so much potential for so many Back to the Future, Chrono Trigger, and Doctor Who jokes.
i am so far from being first
Hence starts the animations of spike questing it.
Time to joss a whole bunch more fanfics!That said, I'm very interested in this. Faust herself has said that ponies don't know that much about Dragons. Dunno if that's changed since she left.
Spike is my least favorite of the main cast (it's basically Mane 6 = #1, Spike = #7), but if it weren't for him, we wouldn't have gotten A Dog and Pony Show, which is my favorite episode.Well, it sounds like there really won't be anything for me here, but so far there's been no such thing as a bad pony episode. After all, this show could always use more dragons.
Oh, man. If they do Dragon Quest references here... XDOverall, this'll be great for some character development and world-building.
@Jason I'll be very sad if he doesn't enounter any slimes. The original NES game was so fucking awesome!
@ChowderT I hope they either reference the game or the 1991 show that only aired 13 Levels before being banned in the US. I loved the show so much but I never found an English Sub for the rest of the episodes. Dragon Quest is awesome and I really really hope they reference it.
A bigger view on the world AND character development? And for Spike no less? Ah, Hasbro, you know how to hit the sweet spots on this Pegasus! ...Dragon Quest... Slime appears?
These episode just KEEP GETTING BETTER!!!This is the best show ever!And I can already see the DragonQuest video game photoshops with this
this sounds horrifyingly similar to one of the land before time sequels...
"Dost thou love me, Spike?" (no)"But thou must!
http://images.4chan.org/mlp/src/1329597032942.pngyou know who loves dragons this guy.
Sound like... Land Before Time: The Big Freeze? anyone? anyone?
How about you credit the artists of the images you use?The image of Spike and Twilight was done by Bricu on DeviantArt, you can find the link below. http://fav.me/d4hhhyx
This sounds like an episode that might actually get us a Spike song!Am I a dragon?!Or am I a pony?(Am I a pony?)If I'm a pony,Then I'm a very scaly pony(Very scaly pony)
OGAWDDRAGONS!I wonder if Fluttershy will be featured prominently in this episode as well.
*reads about episode*This reminds me of Land before Time
MFW I see a Spike episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yu_RmSJxtUEMFW I read the title "Dragon Quest"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H47ow4_Cmk0MFW the episode actually sounds interesting.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVvRwtzHcWI
Did someone say....DRAGON QUEST? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcpajKLrLz8
OMGSH OMGSH OMGSH OMGSH YES!!! MOAR SPIKE WIN!!!Let the fanfics go wild. XD
I like world building.
More Spike? Sweet. Spike is best pony.
@y2kyle89: I see what you did there. :)That'd be pretty cool actually...
For those wondering, this does sound very similar to the plot for The Land Before Time: The Great Migration, although that could easily change with more details. Of course, having a dragon voiced by Kiefer "Jack Bauer" Sutherland would be kind of awesome.
Ahh...I was gonna write a Fanfic about Spike's journey to discover himself. Curse you Hasbro...
@KAWAIIMOI think that Spike doesn´t have wings because he´s some kind of earth-dragon.
This is #200
