So just being a changeling = equals immediate death. No matter if it's doing something wrong or not; soldiers are immediately allowed to kill one, regardless if it's a civilian or a soldier. No concept of basic creatures' rights, no questioning, just a license to murder anyone they like, including what could be a completely innocent person. Yeah, no wonder military gets no respect, in the show or otherwise with these stereotype rife.
Why is it that every single murderous, unhinged psychopath makes up Equestria's armed forces? Even some of the more oppressive regimes don't let their armies do this, at least on paper, and this is supposed to be the land of the Magic of Friendship. Heinreich Himmler would probably give these two or Celestia a pat on the soldier and go, "Wow, way to take it up a noch, bro." Yep, ponies, you've been given a compliment by one of the most evil men in the world, though who am I kidding? Judging by these two ponies, they'll probably faint from fangirl-overdose.
And yeah, know it was written ages ago, but sitll pisses me off.
Excessive and inefficient, but that's just my taste . And as for cute, harmless thing, remember a swarm of Changelings like this invaded Canterlot and overran nearly all resistance within 10 minutes in that episode. These things are horrible little vampires.
You mean the three ponies that actually made any attempt to stop them and a bunch of guards that probably didn't even know what a changeling was?
>horrible little vampires
From what the show has given us (i.e. nothing of substance) we saw one group of changelings doing one thing. We don't know if there are more changelings, what the others feel about ponies, if they have any other means of eating, and even if they speak.
