Description[]

Description: Star Butterfly vs. Twilight Sparkle. Two talented princesses from alternate dimensions with an affinity for magic, who have saved the world from the forces of evil several times, face off in a fight to the end.

Introduction[]

Wiz: Being a princess isn’t all ballroom dances and singing songs with talking animal friends. Sometimes it requires them to stand up for what is right and defeat the forces of evil.

Boomstick: Just like these two magic members of royalty, who always rise to the occasion.

Wiz: Star Butterfly, heir to the Butterfly royal family, and the future queen of the land of Mewni.

Boomstick: And Twilight Sparkle, the unicorn-turned alicorn, who holds the title of the Princess of Friendship. He’s Wiz, and I’m Boomstick.

Wiz: And it’s our job to analyze their powers, skills, and abilities to decide who would win a Death Battle.

Star Butterfly[]

Wiz: It’s gonna get a little weird. It’s gonna get a little wild. And it doesn’t get much weirder or more wild than in another dimension in the kingdom of Mewni.

Boomstick: Where everything seems to revolve around corn for some reason. Seriously, what’s up with that? It’s used with, like, everything.

Wiz: This is the home of Star Butterfly, the future ruler of the land of Mewni.

Boomstick: Which is more or less a mix of medieval and modern day Earth, only with a bunch of monsters running around. Oh, and magic is real here. I’m talkin’ rainbows, I’m talkin’ puppies. Puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puuuhh! Hehe, such a catchy song.

  • Background
    • Age: 14-15
    • Height: 5’2
    • Weight: 115 lbs.
    • Species: Mewman
    • Zodiac sign: Capricorn
    • Princess of Mewni
    • Known as Star the Underestimated
    • Possesses varies magic abilities, both with and without a wand
    • Dated the prince of the Underworld
    • Was the 37th Queen of Mewni for four days before giving the title to Eclipsa

Wiz: As the only daughter to the king and queen of Mewni, Star is the future ruler of the kingdom. As such, she’s required to use and master the power contained in the royal magic wand.

Boomstick: Unfortunately, Star wasn’t the most studious of students, and would much rather spend the day playing with magic and beating up monsters and other baddies who try and steal her wand. You know, typical teenage stuff.

Wiz: While it’s true that Star didn’t start out as the most… ideal student, she still showed a lot of promise of being a great and powerful magic user, and a very adept ruler. So her parents decided to send her to a place where there was no magic or monsters in the hopes that she would be able to learn how to use her wand without getting too distracted.

Boomstick: So they sent her to Earth. And let me tell you, that backfired big time.

Wiz: As the wielder of the royal magic wand, there were a number of power hungry individuals who craved the power she possessed, and so followed her to Earth with the intention of stealing it.

Boomstick: Fortunately for Star, most of these guys were complete idiots, and Star and her new friends were able to send the baddies packing again and again with their skills and Star’s magic.

Wiz: Many monsters and other villains have attempted to steal Star’s wand or simply tried to destroy her, the most notable ones being Ludo Avarius, Toffee, Miss Heinous, and Mina Loveberry. Each one more powerful and more dangerous than the last, but Star has managed to defy the odds and come out on top every time.

Boomstick: Come out on top nothing. Most of the time Star is so powerful that she views these attacks as entertainment.

Wiz: Well, maybe when Ludo was the one leading the attacks, but after Toffee took command, things took a whole different turn.

Boomstick: Yeah, nothing like an evil semi-immortal lizard man to make a hyperactive wild child take their role serious.

Wiz: It did take a while, but Star’s time on Earth and the villains she faced allowed her to realize that she needed to take a much more responsible role as the future queen of Mewni. She goes through quite the character evolution and grows tremendously as a person as she seeks to become the best princess she can be. This included bringing forth peace and equality between monsters and humans, or Mewmans as they were called in Mewni. And she went through quite the ordeal to pull this off.

Boomstick: You’d think that having an affinity for magic where you can do pretty much anything you set your mind to would make that pretty easily.

Wiz: While it’s true that Star was initially very irresponsible with her royal duties and her magic studies, it didn’t change the fact that she was quite powerful. In fact, when she gets serious, her magic abilities could even be limitless. Even her magic evaluator made note that Star was one of the most powerful magic users she had ever seen and had incredible potential.

Boomstick: Why are we low-balling it? According to that freaky cat-thing, Star’s powers are pretty much only limited by her imagination. And what an imagination she has.

Wiz: Yes, magic does indeed seem to follow a very unique set of rules in Mewni, where Star has even been able to invent completely new spells up on the spot, and has done so several times.

Boomstick: And for some reason, each of these spells results in the creation of some sort of avatar or familiar that lives inside her wand. Still trying to wrap my head around that.

Wiz: As it turns out, Star’s wand is actually an extension of the user’s memories, and so each spell takes on a persona that waits inside her wand in a kind of pocket dimension for her to summon it. After which they unleash their magic on whoever or whatever she’s facing before returning to her wand again. We even saw an example of Star creating one of these magical avatars when she created the All-Seeing Eye Spell to allow her to see concealed objects or things in other locations, but from what we know, all of Star’s spells have their own unique representative.

Boomstick: And you should see some of these freaky things. She’s got things like the Narwhale Blast, where she shoots a bunch of miniature narwhales. The Thermonuclear Butterfly Blast, that causes an explosion of fire and butterflies. Not to mention her Spider With A Top Hat Blast, which summons a spider whose hat turns into a freakin’ minigun and shoots up her enemies. Pew, pew, pew, pew, pew! Hey, Wiz, you think I can get a hat like that?

Wiz: Not unless you have a magic wand that can create it.

Boomstick: Ah, bummer. Then how about one of those laser puppies that she created out of thin air on a whim? Those weren’t spells, she freakin’ created life like it was nothing.

Wiz: Well, magic has been shown to be able to completely alter reality, and Star’s is no exception. From controlling time to jumping to different dimensions, it seems like magic really is only limited by the imagination and the user’s capabilities. And few have shown to be at Star’s level.

Boomstick: And get this, Star doesn’t even need her wand in order to use magic.

Wiz: This is important to note. While initially Star did need to use her wand in order to use magic, she begins to be able to use magic herself without the need for it. And her magic is only amplified when she transforms into her Mewberty form.

Boomstick: Which is basically a human crossed with a butterfly… Oh, now I get it! The Butterfly Family! Now it makes sense.

Wiz: But in addition to her magic, Star has many other sets of skills and useful items. Like her dimensional scissors, which allow her to literally cut holes in different dimensions. Or the Box of Truth, that forces anyone present to tell the truth, less they suffer terrible consequences.

Boomstick: As if she needs any of that. Star’s been professionally trained in all forms of combat since she could walk.

Wiz: Yes, it’s been explicitly stated that Star is a very skilled fighter, both with weapons and in hand-to-hand combat. She’s also shown signs of having superhuman speed, strength, and durability that greatly surpasses that of the average human. With her fighting skills and magic abilities, she has saved both Mewni and Earth many times over.

  • Feats
    • Effortlessly knocked down a watchtower
    • Saved the world numerous times
    • Uncovered an ancient conspiracy
    • Unified humans and monsters
    • Uncovered a coup
    • Defeated/helped defeat Ludo, Toffee, Miss Heinous, Mina, and others
    • Destroyed all magic in existence (with help)
    • Merged Earth and Mewni into one dimension (with help)

Boomstick: And if you think that’s impressive, get this, Star even destroyed all magic in existence!

Wiz: In Mewni, there is a place called the Realm of Magic, where all magic originates from and spreads out across all other dimensions. It’s also the home of unicorns, who Star seems to have a natural ability to tame. During her adventures, Star has entered this Realm of Magic several times, though it usually causes her to lose her memories while she’s in it.

Boomstick: After deciding that it would be for the best that magic was taken out of the picture entirely in order to stop all those using it for evil purposes, Star enter this freaky place one last time and used her Whispering Spell to erase all magic.

Wiz: The Whispering Spell is a powerful spell that’s meant to destroy magic. It was the first spell Star’s mother ever taught her, and is something Star has had to use in the past in order to destroy her wand. By chanting the words, “Break the bond, tear the fabric, cleave the stone, stop the magic”, the source of magic in whatever she uses the spell on causes it to self-detonate, and all traces of magic in the object are eliminated. With the help of the spirits of past queens, Star entered the Realm of Magic and was able to use this spell to completely destroy the entire dimension, which causes a chain reaction that eliminated all magic from existence, including destroying all creatures made of magic.

Boomstick: But if you think this was enough to stop Star, you’d be dead wrong. Even as magic died all around her, Star somehow managed to use the last bit of power she had to completely merge Earth and Mewni together.

Wiz: How this happened is a bit of an enigma, but her desire to remain with her boyfriend, Macro Diaz, somehow caused the last bit of magic to build up between the two of them to fuse their two dimensions together so they wouldn’t be separated. It’s not really explained how this happened, but going by what the magic evaluator said about Star’s magic being limited only by her imagination, it’s possible that her wish to stay with Marco somehow caused this phenomenon.

Boomstick: That’s right, Star is so powerful that she and her boy toy’s love instinctually merged two world’s together without them even trying. Now that’s power!

Wiz: Even though Star is indeed very powerful, she can be quite naïve and scatter-brained, which can often get her in trouble. She’s also known to get distracted by a boy she’s attracted to. Or anyone packing a lot of muscle really.

Boomstick: If she’s looking for big muscles, she need look no further than right here. Check this out, Wiz. *Flex*

Wiz: *Sigh* This initial behavior of hers is likely due to her sheltered upbringing, causing her to be overly optimistic and enthusiastic to the point of recklessness, sometimes endangering herself and the people around her. Fortunately, she sees the error of her ways and tries to better herself and the world around her, even if it’s at a great expense to her.

Boomstick: Like how when she discovered that her ancestors pretty much stole the crown from the real royal family, or how badly monsters were persecuted in the past and the prejudices they still faced. Star doesn’t hesitate to try and right these wrongs, even if it meant going against her family, or turning over the title of queen to the rightful ruler, Eclipsa. Hard to believe this is the same spoiled, energetic teen we were first introduced to.

Wiz: While Star did indeed start out as an irresponsible and ignorant character, she grows tremendously as a person and seeks to do the right thing no matter what the cost, even when facing off against truly frightening opponents, even those who are borderline deities.

Boomstick: And clowns. Let’s not forget that she’s afraid of clowns. She probably saw "Stephen King’s It". That certainly gave me a fear of them.

Wiz: But no matter how afraid she is or how badly she messes up, Star can always be counted on to come through for her friends and do what’s right.

Twilight Sparkle[]

Wiz: Somewhere in another dimension is a place called Equestria, a magic realm inhabited by ponies, unicorns, pegasi, and other mythical creatures.

Boomstick: And if you’re a Brony, you probably know more about this world than the actual characters in it.

Wiz: This is the home of Twilight Sparkle, a powerful alicorn who holds the title of the Princess of Friendship.

  • Background
    • Age: 26 (at start of series)
    • Height: Approx. 4’0
    • Weight: 181 lbs.
    • Princess of Friendship
    • Former unicorn turned alicorn
    • Former protégé of Princess Celestia
    • Has a special talent for magic
    • Represents the Element of Magic
    • Founder and former head of the School of Friendship
    • Sister-in-law to the Princess of Love
    • Future ruler of Equestria

Boomstick: Don’t let the cutesy adorableness fool you. This purple pony is packing a whole lot of power.

Wiz: Twilight is a former unicorn who became the protégé of Princess Celestia, the ruler of all Equestria, after her skill in magic was discovered when she was a child.

Boomstick: You see those tramp stamps on her purple posterior, those are called Cutie Marks, and each one is unique and represents their owner’s special talent.

Wiz: See, in Equestria, each pony possesses a special skill or talent that’s unique to them, and their Cutie Mark is a symbol for what it is. When it comes to magic being a talent, each pony usually possesses a particular kind of magical talent that’s exclusive to them. For example, Celestia’s magical talent is raising and lowering the sun, and her sister Luna’s magic is raising and lowering the moon.

Boomstick: But get this, Twilight’s magical talent is for magic itself! Yeah, that basically means she specializes in all forms of magic.

  • Powers and Abilities
    • Flight
    • Teleportation
    • All forms of magic
    • Magic energy blasts
    • Magic shields
    • Telekinesis
    • Reality altering magic
    • Genius level intellect
    • Master problem solver
    • Magical creation
    • Inventing/creating spells
    • Want It, Need It Spell
    • Weather/cloud control
    • Friendship magic
    • Creating illusions
    • Animation magic
    • Time manipulation
    • Transmutation

Wiz: But Twilight isn’t just talented in magic. Along with her friends, who represent, Laughter, Honesty, Loyalty, Generosity, and Kindness, Twilight, who represents Magic, make up the six Elements of Harmony, which form the most powerful form of magic in Equestria.

Boomstick: Yeah, I don’t get how friendship can be a form of magic.

Wiz: Well, one way of looking at it is that different forms of magic are fueled by emotions. And when those emotions come from the bonds of friendship, it creates the strongest kind of magic.

Boomstick: Guess that’s better than the whole love is the strongest kind of magic that’s used in every other series.

Wiz: When the six Elements of Harmony come together, they create a powerful force that’s nigh unstoppable. And as the Element of Magic, Twilight is the strongest of the six, and this magic manifests itself in her crown, which contains her element.

Boomstick: Wait, I thought you said that Twilight was the magic element thing. So is it her, or the crown?

Wiz: Actually, it’s both. The crown was more of a symbol for the Element of Magic, but the power itself comes from within Twilight. The physical elements act more like conduits that initially allow Twilight and her friends to unleash the magic within them. However, after the elements were destroyed by King Sombra, Twilight and her friends learn how to use their magic even without the elements. When the six of them are together, there is nothing that can stand in their way.

Boomstick: But that’s only when all six of them are together, right?

Wiz: True, but even on her own, Twilight is still incredibly powerful. As we said before, Twilight’s special talent is magic itself, and she has demonstrated many times just how skillful she is. This includes learning and mastering very difficult spells, creating new ones herself, and even finishing a spell made by Star Swirl the Bearded, the most powerful sorcerer Equestria has ever seen, who wasn’t able to figure out.

Boomstick: After completing this spell, Twilight was able to earn her wings. And to think, she didn’t even need to show a depressed guy an alternate reality where he was never born. Hey, Wiz, do you think that every time a bell rings, an alicorn gets its wings?

Wiz: Don’t poke fun at a classic, Boomstick.

Boomstick: Who’s poking fun? I’m just pointing out how “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Huh? Huh?

Wiz: *Groan* After earning her wings and becoming an alicorn, Twilight gained the title as the Princess of Friendship, and was tasked with spreading friendship all across Equestria. And over time, Twilight and her friends went on many adventures where they solved friendship problems and faced many challenges, including several villains who sought to take over the world.

  • Feats
    • Created/invented numerous spells
    • Solved several friendship problems
    • Helped unite various kingdoms
    • Became the Princess of Friendship
    • Uncovered a coup
    • Was chosen to rule all of Equestria
    • Finished Star Swirl the Bearded’s spell to became a alicorn
    • Reformed Starlight Glimmer, Sunset Shimmer, and Tempest Shadow
    • Rescued the Pillars of Old Equestria from Limbo
    • Defeated Nightmare Moon, Discord, Sombra, Tirek, Cozy Glow, Chrysalis, the Storm King, the Pony of Shadows, and the Sirens (with help)

Boomstick: Damn, you wouldn’t think that a show about cute little magic horses trying to be friends with everyone could be so badass.

Wiz: It’s true that Twilight and her friends have faced many tough battles, their arguably most difficult one being where they faced Lord Tirek, the magic-eating centaur who drained all the magic in Equestria. It required Twilight to absorb the magic of the other three alicorn princesses just to stand up to him.

Boomstick: It did make for a pretty awesome battle though, even if Twilight had trouble controlling all that magic at first.

Wiz: While it’s true that the magic she absorbed from the princesses was not her own, and thus took some time for her to adapt to it, Twilight’s talent at magic likely allowed her to acclimate to this new level of power, even if she did end up having it drained away by Tirek. Fortunately, she and her friends were able to defeat him with-

Boomstick: Yeah, yeah, the magic of friendship. Basically, they shot a bunch of rainbow lasers and saved the day, and then went back to spreading friendship across the land.

Wiz: But Twilight isn’t just magically gifted. She’s also a certified genius and an adept problem solver. When she’s not hanging out with her friends or solving friendship problems, Twilight can normally be found studying or learning more magic. For a long time, she actually lived in a library, and has read thousands of books, which only increased her knowledge of magic and the history of Equestria.

Boomstick: Probably why she decided to become a teacher.

Wiz: Yes, after she and her friends faced the Storm King, Twilight eventually decided to open the School of Friendship, where all creatures were welcome in order to teach them about the magic of friendship.

Boomstick: Maybe you should go there, Wiz. You could use more friends.

Wiz: Actual friends, Boomstick, not Facebook friends.

Boomstick: Tomato, to-ma-to.

Wiz: *Sigh* In any case, Twilight’s school proved to be a huge success, despite the hardships it faced, and she managed to spread friendship all across Equestria, uniting all the different races.

Boomstick: She even traveled to an alternate dimension where all her friends had human counterparts of themselves, and she herself became a human teenager in high school while she was there. Yeah, that actually happened. And once again, she managed to spread the magic of friendship there too.

Wiz: More than that. The human dimension was a world without magic, but Twilight somehow managed to spread magic from her element to the human versions of her friends in order to defeat Sunset Shimmer after she was corrupted by magic, and then later to help stop the Sirens after they cast a mind-controlling spell over the whole school.

Boomstick: That’s right, Twilight is so powerful that she made magic a thing in a world where magic wasn’t a thing. Try and figure that out.

Wiz: It was eventually decided that Twilight would take over Celestia and Luna’s rule and become the princess of all Equestria when the two of them retired.

Boomstick: From bookworm to the ruler of a nation. Bet that went over well.

Wiz: Well, it was rather anxiety provoking for her at first. Twilight is prone to getting nervous and having panic attacks, or “Twilighting” as her friends call it since it happens so frequently. Self-confidence was always one of Twilight’s biggest weaknesses that she’s had to overcome several times.

Boomstick: Along with her fear of quesadillas for being so cheesy, and her phobia of ladybugs she developed as a kid after her brother told her that their spots were eyes that were always watching her. Actually, that sounds like it would make a pretty cool kind of bug.

Wiz: Twilight would often doubt herself and think of the worst-case scenario, letting her fears get the better of her. She’s also known for being pretty OCD, at times letting even the smallest things drive her crazy, and she would often need to be calmed down by her friends.

Boomstick: But sometimes not even they could calm her down, like the time she thought she was going to be late with her homework, so she used that one freaky spell to cause a problem just so she could solve it.

Wiz: You’re referring to her Want It, Need It Spell, which was designed to make others obsesses over a particular object.

Boomstick: Yeah, that one, the one that drove all her friends crazy. Even Celestia was disappointed in her when she tried to pull that off.

Wiz: We all make mistakes, Boomstick, and yes, this was, admittedly, one of Twilight’s biggest blunders. But as we said before, she is known for imagining the worst-case scenario and panicking.

Boomstick: So you can imagine how much she must have been freaking out after learning that she would be taking over the whole kingdom.

Wiz: It was a hard-going path, but Twilight did manage to overcome her insecurities and gain the confidence she needed to not only become a great ruler, but also to save the world several times. And thanks to her friends and all the creatures they helped, they were able to stop the organized attack made by several past enemies who had obtained the near god-level magic of Grogar, an ancient tyrant who once plunged all of Equestria into darkness.

Boomstick: And with all the baddies beaten, Princess Twilight was crowned as… Princess Twilight. Geez, that sounds kind of anti-climatic when you say it out loud.

Wiz: After taking over for Celestia and Luna, Twilight was gifted with a new crown that granted her the power to move the sun and moon. And thus, the new ruler of Equestria brought forth a long and prosperous reign all across the land for all creatures.

Boomstick: Also, she got really, really tall.

Interlude[]

Wiz: Alright the combatants are set. And we've run the data through all possibilities.

Boomstick: It’s time for a Death Battle!

The Battle[]

Twilight is in the library, looking through a bunch of different books.

Twilight: “Hmm, let’s see here. Yes, if this spell works, I should be able to travel from Equestria to the human world without using the mirror. Then I can visit Sunset Shimmer and my human friends whenever I want.”

She closes the book.

Twilight: “Time to test it out.”

She closes her eyes and teleports. She appears Star’s bedroom in the land of Mewni. The room is currently empty, except for Twilight, and she looks around in confusion.

Twilight: “Wait, this doesn’t look like Canterlot High. Did I get the spell wrong?”

As she looks around, she catches sight of a picture and gasps. It’s a photograph of Star with her friend, Pony Head. Star is holding Pony Head above her and running happily. Twilight stares at the picture in horror.

Twilight: “What? A unicorn head-hunter?”

The door opens behind her, and Star appears in the doorway, looking surprised to see Twilight there.

Star: “Hey, who are you? Why are you in my room?”

Twilight looks from Star to the picture, and realizes that she’s the girl in the photo. She gets angry and turns to Star.

Twilight: “You monster!”

She fires a blast of magic at Star, but Star jumps out of the way. Taking out her wand, she holds it up at Twilight.

Star: “So, you’re looking for a fight, huh? Well, I’m game.”

FIGHT!

Twilight begins by shooting blasts of magic from her horn. Star jumped and dodged out of the way of the blasts, then fired a beam. Twilight flew up to avoid it, doing a backflip in the air, and soared at Star to ram into her. Star jumped up, flipping over Twilight’s head, and landed on the other side of the room. She spun around and fired another beam of magic, but Twilight put up a magical barrier to block.

Using her magic on Star’s large bed, Twilight lifted it up and flung it at Star. It hit Star, carrying her across the room, and crashing through the wall. The bed ended up outside, smashing against the ground. Star leapt out of the wreckage, shaking her head. Twilight suddenly appeared behind her and kicked back with her hind legs, kicking Star in the back and sending her flying. Star did a flip in the air and landed on her feet before turning back to Twilight.

Star: “Narwhale Blast!”

She fired a beam of magic from her wand, shooting out a bunch of miniature narwhales with it. Twilight’s eyes widened in surprise as she saw them flying at her.

Twilight: “What the!?”

She began shooting blasts of magic from her horn, turning the approaching narwhales into harmless things like bubbles, confetti, butterflies, flowers, etc. Star continued to fire her attack while at the same time reaching into her pocket and pulling out a pair of scissors. She used them to tear a hole in dimensions and jumped through it.

Twilight continued to counter the approaching narwhales, not noticing as a rip in dimensions appeared behind her. Star leapt out of and kicked Twilight, sending her flying. She leapt after her, and began delivering a series of punches in the air. Twilight took several blows before suddenly disappearing. She appeared above Star and fired a beam of magic that blasted Star to the ground. Before she hit, however, Twilight appeared where she was going to land and kicked with her back legs again, knocking Star to the left. She appeared in her path and kicked her to the right. This was process repeated several times before Star used her Thermonuclear Butterfly Blast to cause an explosion that sent Twilight flying.

Twilight crashed into the castle wall and fell to the ground, and stone blocks from the wall fell down around her. Star was on her feet again, and fired a series of hearts from her wand at Twilight. But Twilight had recovered and put up her barrier to block them.

Twilight: “Time for a distraction.”

She cast her Want It, Need It Spell on a tree, and Star suddenly envisioned it as a heavily muscled man. Hearts appeared in her eyes and she quickly latched onto it.

Star: “So muscly.”

Smirking, Twilight began levitating the stone blocks around her. Casting a spell, she turned them into swords as Star continued to nuzzle the tree. But then she briefly snapped out of it.

Star: “Wait, gotta keep a clear head.”

She uses her magic to conjure up some anti-magic pudding, which she began to gulp down as Twilight sent the swords flying. Star recovered from the affects of Twilight’s spell just in time to notice the swords flying at her. Her eyes widen in surprise, and she jumped away from the tree and shot them out of the sky with blasts of magic before she was impaled by them.

Star: “Spider With A Top Hat Blast!”

A small spider jumped out of her wand, and its hat opened up to produce a minigun, and began firing upon Twilight. Twilight gasped and used her magic on the castle wall, tearing off a large section and moving it in the path of the gunfire to block the bullets.

Twilight: “I’ve never seen magic like this. I better end things quick.”

She sent the entire section of the wall at Star and her spider. It smashed the spider, but Star put up a magic barrier, and the wall smashed into it. She dropped the barrier and teleported directly in front of Twilight, delivering an uppercut. Twilight went flying into the air from the blow, but managed to stop herself.

She ended up stopping beside a cloud, and glanced at it with interest. Hopping on top of it, she stomped down on it, and a bolt of lightning flew out and struck Star. As Star was electrocuted, Twilight fired a beam of magic, and Star was suddenly encased in a large crystal. Her wand tumbled across the ground, and Twilight flew over to it and smashed it with her hoof.

Twilight: “No more magic for you.”

She walked over to the crystal Star was trapped inside and tapped it with her hoof before smiling victoriously. The smile left her face though as the crystal shook a few times before she was knocked back as the crystal suddenly blew apart. Star emerged, her hands glowing with magic, and she blasted Twilight with a beam of magic.

Star: “Surprise! I don’t need no wand.”

She went on the attack, firing blast after blast of magic at Twilight. Twilight teleported out of the way of each blast, then soared at Star, her horn glowing as a ball of magic appeared at the end. Star’s own hands glowed, balls of magic appearing over them, and she punched outward as Twilight collided with her. There was an explosion of magic that sent them both flying back.

Star recovered though and used her dimensional scissors to tear open another portal. Reaching inside, she snatched up one of the discarded swords Twilight had launched at her and pulled it through the portal, then charged at Twilight. She swiped the sword, and a nervous looking Twilight ducked, almost getting her head cut off. Star swiped and stabbed as Twilight continued to dodge before she finally teleported away. Star charged after her when she reappeared, but Twilight fired off a spell that struck Star’s sword, turning it into a harmless mop, and Star skidded to a halt as she stared at it in surprise.

Casting another spell, Twilight teleported her crown to her, and placed it on her head. She then fired a much stronger blast of magic. Star put up a magic barrier that Twilight’s magic beam slammed against. She struggled to hold it, but the barrier shattered, blasting Star back. She recovered quickly though and used her magic to rip a tree out of the ground, which she sent flying at Twilight.

Twilight teleported up into the sky to avoid the tree, and Star began punching out beams of magic up at her. Twilight easily teleported out if the way of blast, then sent her own down at Star. But Star suddenly transformed into her Mewberty form and flew up to avoid the blast of magic, joining Twilight in the sky. Using her dimensional scissors, she tore a hole in dimensions, and flew into it.

Twilight looked around as several more tears began appearing in the air around her, one after another. Suddenly, Star flew out of one and delivered a punch to Twilight before flying into another one. Then she flew out of a different one, delivered another blow, and disappeared into another one. Frustrated, Twilight looked at the different rips in reality around her before Star emerged again and struck her once more. She kept this up, flying out of one hole, delivering a blow, and then vanishing into another. Twilight was struck again and again as Star gained speed, the blows coming more rapidly.

Twilight: “Enough!”

She created an explosion of magic as Star came out to hit her again. The blast sent Star flying, but she halted her momentum. Twilight flew after her, slamming into Star, and they crashed through one of the towers of the castle, causing it to collapse. Twilight emerged from the rubble and looked around. Star emerged a short distance away with several large pieces of rubble floating around her that she sent flying at Twilight.

Twilight used her magic to halt them in midair, fighting against Star’s control over them. While she was doing that, Star used her dimensional scissors to tear open another portal and fired a beam of magic into it. A tear opened behind Twilight, and the beam of magic Star had fired came out of it, hitting Twilight from behind. She skidded across the ground, and her crown landed beside her. Before she could grab it though, Star fired a blast of magic that destroyed it.

Twilight: “My crown! You did it now!”

She glared angrily at Star, who was hovering a distance away. Twilight’s horn and Star’s multiple hands began glowing with magic, and they both fired a powerful beam at each other. The beams collided in a stalemate. They continued firing though, and the magic continued to build up where their beams met until finally there was a massive explosion that consumed the area.

Everything was obstructed by smoke, and Twilight coughed as she flapped her wings to clear the area. She began looking around, but couldn’t see Star anywhere with all the smoke. But then she took notice of the All-Seeing Eye briefly appearing in the air above her before it faded away. Twilight was confused by it, but then she was suddenly attacked as Star, back in her normal form, leapt out of the smoke and tackled her to the ground. She grabbed Twilight in a headlock, and the two briefly wrestled on the ground for a bit before Star placed her hand to Twilight’s ear and began whispering.

Star: “Break the bond, tear the fabric, cleave the stone, stop the magic. Break the bond, tear the fabric, cleave the stone, stop the magic. Break the bond, tear the fabric, cleave the stone, stop the magic. Break the bond, tear the fabric, cleave the stone, stop the magic.”

Twilight froze as Star whispered to her. As Star chanted, Twilight’s eyes began to glow. Suddenly, a spark appeared at the end of her horn, and there was an explosion of magic. It cleared away all the smoke, but left a large area of destruction. Star was nowhere to be seen, but Twilight was present in the crater that had been left behind from the blast. She was breathing heavily, looking disorientated, but then Star suddenly landed nearby, drawing her attention.

Still breathing heavily, Twilight lifted herself up. She tried to fire a blast of magic, but her horn hung limply on her head, and nothing happened. She looked confused that her magic failed and tried again, but her horn just flopped around useless, and only a few harmless sparks escaped the tip.

Twilight: “What? My magic is gone.”

Star’s foot deliberately stomped down on a twig to draw her attention, and Twilight looked back at her.

Star: “Guess what?”

She transformed into her Mewberty form again, hovering a few feet off the ground away from Twilight as she spoke in a singsong voice.

Star: “I still have miiiiiine!”

She cupped her hands together and fired a powerful beam. Twilight shut her eyes as the beam came at her. She was blasted by it and was completely reduced to ashes. Star landed a short distance away and changed back to normal. She then turned to the destroyed castle and let out a sigh.

Star: “And now the castles destroyed again…”

Her face suddenly lit up as she got excited.

Star: “The perfect chance for monsters and Mewmans to work together. Alright everyone, move out, we’ve got a castle to rebuild!”

KO!

Star is seen in a construction worker’s uniform, happily directing both monsters and Mewmans in the restoration of repairing the castle.

Outcome[]

Boomstick: And evolution wins the day again! Hurray for opposable thumbs!

Wiz: There was a little more than having opposable thumbs at work here, but it was a pretty close battle, as both Star and Twilight are highly skilled and very powerful magic users, but Star held the advantage in several areas.

Boomstick: Like having opposable thumbs!

Wiz: *Sigh* Thumbs aside, probably the biggest advantage Star had over Twilight would be her skill in combat. In this area, Star far exceeds Twilight and her capabilities.

Boomstick: But we’ve seen Twilight fight before. Against Tirek, against the Changelings, and then Tirek again when he teamed up with Chrysalis and Cozy Glow, not to mention Sombra.

Wiz: Yes, while it is true that Twilight does fight when it’s necessary, overall she’s not a fighter. Star on the other hand is extremely capable in combat, and often fights monsters, warriors, and magic users on a regular basis, not to mention she had been trained to fight both with and without a weapon since she was very young. She’s also shown signs of having speed and strength that exceed Twilight’s physical capabilities.

Boomstick: Yeah, it was even stated that when she was a toddler, she was already able to break someone’s neck with her bare hands. As a toddler! Twilight’s got nothing on that level of fighting skill.

Wiz: When Twilight does engage in battle, she’s mostly reliant on her magic in order to fight, but even in this area, Star held the advantage, as she’s been seen performing spells that rival if not surpass what Twilight has shown to be capable of, especially in her Mewberty form.

Boomstick: Not to mention her magic is so random at times that you never know what’s going to happen.

Wiz: As stated before, Star’s magic is pretty much limited by her imagination, and she’s even able to come up with new spells on the spot. And even though Twilight is known for creating new spells herself, and figuring out how magic previously unknown to her works, it always requires time and effort for her to understand and figure them out. And yes, the randomness of Star’s magic would indeed make it difficult for Twilight to find a way to be able to counter and defend against it, while Star would have a much easier time fighting against Twilight’s brand of magic, especially since she can pretty much just come up with a way to counter anything thrown at her if she needed to.

Boomstick: But didn’t Twilight gain, like, Dragon Ball Z level of power magic when she fought against Tirek? That was a lot of power she was packing.

Wiz: That is a fair point to make. And had Twilight possessed that kind of power, it may have changed the outcome of the battle, but the level of magic you’re referring to was only temporarily gifted to her by her fellow alicorns princesses, Celestia, Luna, and Cadance, and wasn’t actually her own power. Just like using the full extent of her friendship magic would require the assistance of her five friends and isn’t something she can just use on her own, so Twilight wasn’t able to use either one of these in her battle with Star.

Boomstick: Yeah, I guess you can’t use friendship magic without your friends. Although I thought she had Star for a minute there when she used that Want It, Need It Spell of hers.

Wiz: Which certainly made for a close call. However, due to Star’s exposure to the Realm of Magic and the hypnotic affects it has on the mind, she’s built up a resistance to magic like this, allowing her to briefly snap out of such trances, even when in the Realm of Magic itself. This allowed her to regain her senses from Twilight’s Want It, Need It Spell long enough for her to eat the anti-magic pudding to neutralize Twilight’s spell and resume the battle.

Boomstick: I’m actually surprised Twilight’s ability to move the sun and moon didn’t come into play.

Wiz: Ah, you would think so, but to be honest, there wasn’t really any use for it. While Twilight gaining the ability to raise the sun and moon is a very impressive display of magic, it isn’t something that would really be able to help her in battle. It should also be noted that this power wasn’t given to Twilight herself, but was heavily implied to be placed in her new crown in the last episode of the series, similar to how Celestia and Luna first put their magic into a talisman when Twilight temporary took over their leadership when they went on vacation. Either way, changing it from day to night, or vice versa, wouldn’t have done her much good in the fight, especially against Star’s trump card.

Boomstick: I’m guessing you’re talking about her Whispering Spell.

Wiz: This was overall the game changer and what truly allowed Star to achieve victory. The fact that Twilight relies almost solely on her magic to fight is essentially what led to her defeat. With Star’s ability to destroy magic with her Whispering Spell, it really didn’t matter how powerful Twilight was or what kind of magical abilities she possessed since Star could simply destroy all the magic she had. And with Star’s brand of magic being completely unknown to Twilight, she wouldn’t know that Star possessed such an ability, let alone how to prevent it, if stopping it is even a possibility.

Boomstick: Yeah, don’t forget that Star was able to destroy an entire dimension of magic and erase all magic from existence, even if she did have some help with that from the ghosts of the past queens. Wooooooo! Spooky.

Wiz: It’s true that destroying the Realm of Magic did indeed require assistance from Star’s ancestors, but there’s a big difference in destroying an entire dimension of magic and erasing the magic contained in a single individual, especially since we’ve seen examples of characters having their magic neutralized in some way or another throughout MLP, including Twilight herself.

Boomstick: Like when she was exposed to that weird flower that made her horn go limp, or when her brother got those black crystals stuck to his horn. If something as simple as that can stop a pony’s magic, then a spell that can eliminate all magic in existence would be more than enough to get the job done.

Wiz: It can even be argued that the Whispering Spell was never intended to be used on the Realm of Magic itself and was only meant to be used on people or objects that possessed magic, which is why Star needed help with it that time. But as we saw in the battle, Star was quite literally able to render Twilight powerless after she took away her magic, including removing her ability to fly since we saw Tirek do the same to other pegasi when he sucked their magic, implying that despite their wings, pegasi still require some form of magic that allows them to fly. But even if Twilight could still fly without her magic, once Star used her Whispering Spell on her, it was all over.

Boomstick: But didn’t Twilight bring magic to the human world when there wasn’t magic there? Couldn’t she just, I don’t know, do that again to restore her lost magic or something?

Wiz: Not in this case. In the Equestria Girls movie, even though Twilight was rendered powerless in her human form, the magic in her crown still belonged to her, which allowed her to channel it into herself and into her friends. But after Star used her Whispering Spell, there was no magic left at all for Twilight to do this since it was destroyed, which allowed Star to make the finishing blow.

Boomstick: Too bad Star didn’t keep her as a pet flying horse or something. Didn’t we talk about how Star had the ability to control unicorns?

Wiz: You’re referring to Star’s equestrianism. Yes, it was stated that Star had the ability to tame unicorns. Although there’s really no telling how this ability would affect Twilight, if it would even affect her at all, especially since she became an alicorn.

Boomstick: Well, it certainly couldn’t hurt. Just chalk it up to one more way she’s the better princess.

Wiz: The winner is Star Butterfly.
