This episode is gonna be SO AWESOME!
A Minotaur self help coach? I'm sold on it already!
Ib4 she takes her assertiveness too far like Dash took her fame too far in Mare Do Well.
I smell a Flutterbitch.
bleh I mean WOW
Wow, I totally wasn't expecting Iron Will to be a bull.
Gotta love fluttershy being so adorkable. <3
Trixie has a new challenger!
Looks awesome, can't wait lol.
Fluttershy becoming more assertive than ever!!!!! ^_^
Oh hi Alistar.
This is the first time I saw something new before it got postet on EQD! :DI'm so awesome :P
No! Don't turn flutters into a jerk =(
Okay, this is a minotaur, and he clearly buys his stage pyrotechnics from the same company as Trixie. I'm not sure what to think.
OMG THAT WAS AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!
NEVER APOLOGIZE WHEN YOU CAN CRITICIZE!!!!! ^_^Thats very catchy!!!
And THAT is why Fluttershy is (and always will be) top of my favorites list.*Insert obligatory Spongebob joke here*
It appears that Iron Will has the Royal Canterlot voice.
Hnnng can't wait for Saturday!
I was hoping Iron Will was a royal guard.
I'm a bit scared of this episode, gonna be awesome though =P
Mind = blownMinotaurs AND assertive Fluttershy? This episode is going to be so freaking awesome.
I am Commander Shepard, and this is my favourite Minotaur in Equestria
Awesome! Can't wait! :)
"oooo he's blocking your path!! what are you going to do about it??""go home and try again tomorrow?" XD i love fluttershy!!
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Must see.
A minotaur taking the ham up to eleven? I can't wait!
Minotaurs canonized!Oh this will be good.
SO MUCH D'AWWWWW
@Kadrealof course that is what they're gonna do.they wouldn't have an episode otherwise.
Trixie style fireworks! YAY
"Calm down Fluttershy and tell me where he touched you."
Is that a variation of the beginning of "The Eye of The Tiger" I hear at 0:52 until 0:58?Just wow.
YESSSSSSS THIS WILL BE AWESOME
Trixie had better fireworks.But awesome character anyway!^^
@Princess AddictiaHE TOUCHED ME IN PLACES I DON'T UNDERSTAND :'(
"WHEN SOMEPONY TRIES TO BLOCKSHOW THEM THAT YOU ROCK"Holy shit, Iron Will is the best thing.
Iron Will is an antagonist; this will be interesting.
this episode clearly shows discrimination against goat.bad episode is bad.trollface.jpg
Bulls on steroidsI think we're affecting the show a little bit to much...
Oh my, I hope Fluttershy takes home the best and not the worst of this Minotuar's lessons!
@RafasdeI do believe so although the end sounds a little off
"Never apologize when you can criticize!"
@smokeydops2they're gonna recycle the lesson mare do well used, but in a different wording.It's okay to be assertive, but not over assertive.(it's okay to be proud, but not too proud.)
DAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! I want fluttershy noooowaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!
I SPILLED MY DRINK IN MY LAP WHEN I SAW THIS!!!My lap is sticky now but I don't freaking CARE!
@Roy G. BivAgreed. Also, is that a minotaur I see? Good to see the team is keeping up with their mythological creatures.
fluttershy is one of my favorite characters after pinkie pie, this should be great!
Lol those hands look weird. Im assuming first hands in MLP?
Yay, this episode will definitely be pure awesome!Btw did you noticed the microphone thingy the minotaur was wearing??
I wonder if they will refer to him as a minotaur or just as a bull? He's not a minotaur in the classical sense, which isn't surprising since he'd have to be half human... though the implication that humans exist or existed in Equestria would be verrrry interesting...
@feintLyra will appear then
Anyone else hear "The Final Countdown" at 0:53?
The whole town is going to turn into a bunch of jerks... this is going to be amazing!
Trixie found a new job as pyrotechnician.
Fluttershy is so adorably assertive. Also a Minotaur. I love how they are going into the different mythologies.
Hey Iron Will, I'm really happy for you and I'm gonna let you finish... but Princess Luna has the best Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice of all time.
i get the feeling that is going to be the lesson, but i also get the feeling FS is going to learn it herself
A minotaur? Bucking awesome!
ASSERTIVENESS! IT'S GOT WHAT PLANTS CRAVE!
Man, what is it with traveling jerks coming into Ponyville with the explicit intent of making money but really just causing problems along the way? I bet they all went to the same business school. I can just picture Iron Will, Trixie, and the Flim Flam Brothers all in class together. Make it happen fan artists, make it happen. :)
*rubs chin* Hmmmmmm. *shifty eyes* Hmmmmm.No sir, I don't like it.
@kultistI think you mean electro lights
Dude, his theme is Eye of the Tiger. This pretty much guarantees a training montage, and Fluttershy being boss.We're three for three on traveling ponies being antagonists. Friendship is NOT Nomadic, then.
I really like his... tie? It just so odd to see him wearing a tie on a bare torso like that, it makes it hilarious.
I knew it. iron will is one of those lame motivational speakers who scam people
That bull already has me rollin' with laughs!
There was many ways the episode could go, I'm pleased to see it's going to start as one of those pushing types of guru helping Fluttershy. I just hope the episode won't end with her going 'I shouldn't try to be something I don't want to be' and dump the entire episode off her mind. She has to be true to her namesake, sure, but I do believe it's time she gets to change her normal behavior.
@StorytellerSJKHatred is Nomadic
LOL, this is looking to be pretty good! Can't wait!
USE HEADBUTT PULVERIZE. :D
All my money on Fluttershy being too assertive because of initial positive reinforcement, then learning to take things in moderation after some chaos. Add in a letter to Celestia and viola - Episode complete. :3
Dangleshy is best dangled pony.
Final Countdown is Europe. Eye of the Tiger is Foreigner.Europe sucks. Foreigner. . . a little less so.Minotaur is totally a scam artist.
Hmmmm... I think I read a fanfic like this once.The episode looks like it's going to be even better! :D
@Penguin_616You sure it isn't the "Eye of the Tiger" like I said above?
The facial constructions are getting better and better.
This episode is going to be very awesome. I didn't have high hopes, since I don't find many surprises with Fluttershy, but...this episode is going to be VERY. AWESOME.
@kultistHave you been watching Idiocracy again?I was also kind of hoping somewhere that Peter Cullin would do the voice if Iron Will, and it would be like Fluttershy is being mentored by Optimus Prime. Of course on second though that wouldn't work.
Oh god, Fluttershy's attempt to be assertive, and her face at the end...it's just...it's so...D'AWWWWWW! I don't know if I can survive this episode!
@pmcollectorboyActually, Eye of the Tiger is Survivor.Feels Like the First Time is Foreigner :D
All I can think of is the episode where Plankton taught Spongebob the same.
On the one hand, I'm looking forward to the inevitable hamminess of this episode. Fluttershy is just adorably awkward. On the other hand, however, I'm not looking forward to Fluttershy being a jerk, and all of the shoe-horned references to it in new story updates.
I think the lesson is "sometimes, people will take advantage of you. know when to stand up for yourself, but don't lose your humility."
Iron Will is a Minotaur eh, sweet. Also I eagerly look forward to the return of Flutterbitch, or that is to say a new derivative of the character...Assertashy! Can't wait for Saturday!
@Christian Like donkey kong!
Rex-Kwon-Do keeps popping into my head for some reason.
i soooo want to see this now right now GIVE IT TO ME NOWummm ye....
What a surprise. I thought that Iron Will is a pony :) It's gonna be SO AWESOME
also, a minotaur doesn't mean humans existed. humans could end up being the one actual mythological creature in that setting. as in, of all the creatures that ARE real, humans are the one that is actually a myth.
I know it's been said earlier...like 5 times but really? Eye of the tiger and ponies? I think this episode is gonna be the best yet of season 2 :D
@PonyPonYou do realize what that gonna means?It means lots and lots of fanfics will use Minotaurs as a race like they did with the griffions!I can already see it, Equestira: Total War with Ponies, Griffions and Minotaurs!!! <3Now all that´s missing are some Werewolfs or Wolfen cause i dont think they gonna call Iron will Minotaur in this episode, but rather Bull.
Wow, this guy's a really solid motivator. And he can rhyme! Maybe he can help Pinkie Pie with her co-dependency.
oh god...i can only imagine the hardcore porn she's gonna be in now...and she's gonna be on top...
If Fluttershy turns into a giant dick in this episode, i will hold it against her.
Video tag: "bronies"My life has more meaning than ever before
@wackyponyI won't because she isn't real.
Iron Will's voice is totally Chris Rager using his Mr. Satan/Hercule voice from the 1996 Dragon Ball Z! I don't even watch Dragon Ball Z and a little research on Behind the Voice Actors told me that!
Oh, this episode is going to be gold. Simply cannot wait.
@Adrian Brony Only under the classical definition of a minotaur would the existence of humans necessarily be implied. This depiction seems to reference more modern ideas. But I still like to speculate ;)
...*sunglasses off*Mother of...lol, this is gonna be great! XD
Fluttershy forgot about flying over him. Anyway, didn't expect Iron Will to be a minotaur.
Please tell me that guy is voiced by Hulk Hogan...
I totally was not expecting a Minotaur
Iron Will is a minotaur? Awesome... just awesome.
Lyra's gonna love this guy...
@JordanI knew I reconized that voice from somewhere. In that context this episode is going to be very funny.
I can see where this is going.Iron Will will probably push Fluttershy too far until she decides that enough is enough.
aw what a cute smile she had at the end :)
@feintNo, Spike's claws are technically hands and Ahuizotl had hands, plus a hand on his tail.
@wackyponyOh god, the innuendo...
So a Minotaur in Equestria is half bull, half...?And I'll never understand why people think "hands" are something that ponies would have never heard of. Spike has hands (clawed hands, but still hands.)I have no trouble recognizing the word "hoof" or understanding what it is even though no sentient being on my planet has hooves. I also understand fins, scales, flippers... any number of body parts I don't possess. Anyway, this little scene greatly increased my interest in this episode!
I sense disturbance in the force
Inafter tons of Minotaur comments.I myself was getting more into some of the funny things he was saying. "Why apologize when you can criticize?" lol And Fluttershy's expression at the end of the clip is just adorable. <3
woo, can't wait <3
This looks awesome.I predict:. A training montage. Assertishy. Flutterbitch. Epic showdown in which Fluttershy uses her assertiveness to drive Iron Will out of town
I think I see where this one is going.
Don't tell me I'm the only one who thought of MR.T because of this XD
Oh.. my. :(I-i don't like where this is going..
Did somepony order..A LARGE HAM.
A Minotaur eh? Just about every mythological creature imaginable seems to exist in Equestria.
The return of flutterbitch well looks like i need to skip this episode... ;(
Hmmmm, I'm a little nervous about the message of this one. However if any show can pull it off it's MLP FIM. I hope they do it similarly to what they did in Boast Busters, and show the difference between being a jerk and being assertive while still encouraging and putting enough emphasis on the latter.
Hmm...return of the stare master? Can already see training montage set to Eye Of The Tiger (Eye of the dragon) or fan made ones.
This looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun!
I sooooo exited 4 dis epidode.
Oh my CelestiaCan't wait for his episode! 8D
DUDE!Fluttershy's face at the end was so adorable.Moral of the Story:"Dear Princess Celestia,Today I learned that you need to stand up for yourself and be assertive, but don't be a douche about it.-Fluttershy"I'm paraphrasing, but you get the idea.
As I said on Facebook and YouTube...Seems folks wanting to take advantage of others in Ponyville always do the same thing; they come with a portable stage. First Trixie, then the Flim Flam Brothers, and now Iron Will.This won't end well.
Most easily led crowd.
@wackyponyWell when your assertiveness coach's methods involve teaching students to be jerkasses for money that kind of goes without saying...
HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG!This is a Flutterwry I can love and tolerate.
@wackyponyI was thinking that too, but then I realized that he was advertising to the whole town, not just Fluttershy.So what I'm thinking is, kinda the same thing, but spread throughout the whole town.
Only one thing bothers me.From what I can tell based on my own observations, goats, unlike sheep, don't appear to be sentient. My basis for this theory is the appearance of a goat in the background of the "Find a Pet" song. If that is the case, I am worried that Fluttershy will start being harsh to her animals, such as the lovable douchbag, Angel.
I'm calling it now, FS becomes too assertive and ends up hurting RD's feelings badly. Congradulations Rain, you're the new Fluttershy.
Just when I thought I couldn't possibly love Fluttershy more than I already do, I see THIS.
Omg this episode is GONNA BE AMAZING!!!!!!! Also Minotaurs?? HOLY&*%$
The site should be Iron-Will Park after the episode comes out.
you guys and your spoilers....
Oh, wow. Minotaur motivational speaker, complete with the dorky little headset mic and voice that makes me wonder if he's going to snap into a Slim Jim.This is going to be fun.
FLUTTERSHY EPISODE EVERYPONY!!!!! EEEEEEEEE!!!!/ROYAL CANTERLOT COMMENT
Just like that self help guy from Napoleon Dynamite. XD
no no NO NO NO NOT FLUTTERBITCH AGAIN :C
THE RETURN OF FLUTTERBITCH!!!!THIS IS GOING TO BE FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!!!
@burntfish44The way I see it it's not a spoiler when it's officially released.
This clip Reminds me of Boast Busters... i dont know why
I count three Colgates.
@RafasdeEye of the Pony! I totally hear that too!
1)Minotaur's are canon FTW!!2)Money garbing Minotaur's are canon FTW!!3)Fluttershy had a wingboner when he was garbing her hoof. I have such a dirty mind...
Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought of POWERTHIRST!!!!!! while watching this.
SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM! OHHHH YEAAAAA!
Mother of God.
@Simple That was literally my first thought, after the fact that he had HANDS!!!
@Arnon Katsu I really don't think it's going to end up being that personal. Fluttershy becoming an asshole seems pretty likely, though.
@FirespikezOh yes yes yes yes yes YES, Flutterbitch again!I bet it will be Twilight who she takes it too far with her assertiveness or whateva you call it. XD
She's too adorable... it made me smile. :)
Fluttershy becomes The Situation.Mother of God.
@James RyeI'm betting on Rainbow!
Fluttershy was due and we all knew it. I would love to get a view of her parents since we have seen everypony's parents except Shy and RD so far.
Is anyone else thinking of this when watching this clip?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uj6Vp-KFS4
Iron Will: You've got to be assertive!Fluttershy: Beep beep!Iron Will: Not INsertive!
@feintSpike the dragon would like to talk to you.
That plot, he just hit it :O
I think her assertiveness will backfire and she's going to push the wrong pony (or other creature) and end up putting her 'hoof' in her mouth.
Aww, I was hoping the coach would be voiced by Diedrich Bader.Otherwise, looks like an awesome episode.
@James Rye whatever. I'm not watching if if Fluttershy's actually getting her character ruined again. I don't think I could stand that sight without getting depressed, let alone seeing the wave of fan art that would follow. What a shame.
Oh man, this clip is hilarious! I know I'm gonna totally enjoy this episode now. XDIt's cool to see that even more races are being added to Equestria, and he looks like he's gonna be really funny. Plus, the fact that his voice actor might be the same one who did Hercule in Dragon Ball Z makes it that much more awesome. I always thought that Hercule was ridiculously funny, and Iron Will looks like he will also deliver some great humor.
Another mythical creature that is a total jerk. When will the imaginary get a GOOD light?
Dear Princess Celestia,GTFO you meanie, I don't need YOU telling me what to do! Aww, are those tears? Cry some more!- Flutter*erased*cruel*****ten seconds later*TO THE MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON BEEEEYAAAAAAAACH
@sygmusIW: There's the guy who took your ice cream, don't you want it back?FS: Ice Cream!IW: Tell him off, Fluttershy, assert yourself!FS: That's my ice cream cone!IW: Great, now let him have it!FS: You can have it.IW: NOOOO!
I dont even...
My prediction:People are gonna tear this episode apart with a bloody stick. Then pick up their mare do well "Stick" and beat it again.Then proceed to comment on getting over your head fluttershy was too predictable. (You know it could happen.)Then while trying to enjoy the episode my mind will be invaded with rants on it Saturday, and all throughout the week. (The elitist fans atleast.) .....I really hope no one goes overboard Then again maybe not. Mane 6 arnt doing anything (As far as I know.) insulting most likely. So no matter what the final result is im sure it'll get more praise than MDW. ...........But then theirs derpy and that rage.:/
Also, not sure that the minotuar is Iron Will. Gilda, and Spike, the other mythical creatures we have names for, have normal names. Iron Will sounds much more like a pony name.
ALL OF MY WANT!
"THE RETURN OF FLUTTERBITCH" OMYGOSHOMYGOSH DFVGHBFYTSFRGHNJYDRGHNJHREFHJMUKTTDGHJMKUDHTXGJKUHT!!!!!!!!!
I HATE the term Flutterb!*%^. It'd break her heart if she heard you say that.
@LuridChronomancerbut it's increasingly accurate...
@JordanCan't be. With the exceptions of Tara Strong (who does Twilight's speaking voice and nobody else) and John de Lancie (who was a major guest character), the show strictly uses Vancouver-based voice talent. Chris Rager is based in Texas, so it's not him.
@FirespikezWell I don't really get why it bothers so much, but I think you should give the ep a chance. You won't know what it will be like until it actually comes out.
@LuridChronomancerHow about Fluttercruel?
Omigod minotaurs. Also, anyone see total ponyville destruction incoming?
