Changing into an alicorn isnt all pretty pink sparkles and song numbers. It is a painful process that very few ponies manage to live through as most end up dying or going crazy as a result of the excruciating pain. Unicorns must first develop their own personal magic, which is in itself an arduous task, one which takes many years to hone. Once a unicorn’s magic is strong and stable enough they must undergo the transformation…




















(this is my headcanon about alicorns. Posting it on DA, from my tumblr, because, why not?)

What if they don't want to undergo the transformation?

So like how does it look when a Pegasus is transforming into an Alicorn? That horn gotta be made outta bone. Imagine your skull cracking and reshaping into that. mmmmm...

Imagine how agonizing it must be for an Earth Pony then...  They have to grow wings AND horn!

Hmmm, maybe that Earth Pony strength might help them endure the extra pain?

Addition: Actually, since Alicorns are supposed to represent all three tribes, unicorns and pegasi, logically, must have their muscles and bones altered to match Earth Ponies. I bet that would hurt like an utter bitch.

It was stated that Princess Cadance was a Pegasus before becoming Alicorn, so how is your version of the Alicorn transformation for a Pegasus? Awesome picture btw!

Great idea and picture! Reminds me almost of transformation's in dbz due to my headcanon being that the screams (particularly in frieza and cell's case) are due to the transformations being painful. I mean growing bones and having new muscle layer on must hurt like hell. Imagine what an earth pony would go through ;)

Awesome picture, but there's one problem with that theory... Becoming an Alicorn is not exclusive to unicorns, as Cadence was a Pegasus originally and was turned into one when she harnessed the full power and potential of her magic, ie; Love
