Nightmare Moon Battles Chrysalis by 90Sigma Nightmare Moon Battles Chrysalis by 90Sigma
[previous]
"... You don't know your Equestrian history very well, do you?"
The crowd gasped in equal amounts shock and awe as Luna assumed the form of that of Nightmare Moon.
"Evil? Ha! I was evil once. You know, you and I have something in common. I too defeated Celestia many years ago."
"Who are you?! ... What are you?"
"I am your worst nightmare*."


Because Chrysalis could defeat Celestia, Luna turns to the only other entity known throughout history to also defeat Celestia: Nightmare Moon. With Nightmare's additional dark magicks, Chrysalis doesn't stand a chance.

This was inspired by World8's image Evil? Ha! I was evil once..., which depicts a fight between Luna and Chrysalis.

Chrysalis: (quickly collects herself) "Worst nightmare?!? I've proven myself far stronger than you!  I laid Celestia into a coma and I will do the same to you!  Do you honestly believe that I will..."

Nightmare Moon: (scowls and grabs Chrysalis in a magical snare)

Chrysalis: "..eep!"

[Nightmare Moon lifts Chrysalis and smashes her into the floor and walls multiple times, ultimately pounding the Changeling queen in a shallow pit of gravel in the stone floor.]

Nightmare Moon: (scoffs) "Puny queen."

Chrysalis: (strained breathing and whimpering)



Yes, I ripped that from the Avengers movie.  The scenario was perfect for it.

Chrysalis wins. Nightmare, while slightly stronger than Celestia, is not a huge amount above her while Chrysalis wrecked Celestia in one shot

Chrysalis>>>Celestia
Chrysalis>=Celestia

except chrysalis herself had not expected to win. the only reason she had won is because she basically was on steroids because she'd been feeding off of shining armors love for cadence the entire time. she used up that power boost when she beat celestia, she wouldn't have the reserves left to fight luna even if she hadn't returned to nightmare moon

You're right, I forgot to add that in. 
Chrysalis with love>>>Celestia
Chrysalis without love<<<<<Celestia
I think Chrysalis kept the power boost, or at least long enough to defeat Nightmare Moon. Chrysalis says "Shining Armor's love for you is stronger than I thought, consuming it has made me even more powerful than Celesta!". She sounds like she's speaking present tense which to me implies that Chrysalis still had some of that power

:iconsekkechi:
sekkechi Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013
she may have kept it yes. but she also clearly thought she wasn't going to win against celestia, i doubt she felt she could afford to hold any reserves back. however after she defeated celestia it was easy for her to bluff and boast about how much more powerful the love she absorbed made her. even if she didn't have that power left she had shown and frightened the ponies with her win against celestia. if she did still have that power then why for the rest of episode does she do...absolutely bucking nothing. she stands there and ignores the mane 6 and even blows off cadence and shining armor when they're powering up. what if she was bluffing and acting like she still had the upper hand when in reality she didn't? and thus when she noticed how powerful cadence and shining armor had grown she knew she was bucked royally

Chrysalis was an idiot but she wasn't that big of an idiot. She must have had at least some gas left in the tank or other wise she'd have an honor guard surrounding her. As for Chrysalis doing nothing for the rest of the episode....like I said, she's a moron with an ego the size of Jupiter, she thought it was below her to do anything. By the time she realized how powerful the shield was, it was too late. I'd like to mention that Chrysalis getting defeated by the shield is not a mark against her, the shield was stated as being the most powerful of it's kind.

not entirely sure what the stuff at the bottom means. but you do have a good point, chrysalis is an arrogant idiot
but still i don't think she'd have enough 'gas' so to speak left to defeat nightmare moon who is currently at full power while chrysalis would not be. 
and i never stated that being defeated by the shield was a point against her power, i just pointed out that she ignored it when it was going on and trying to bluff her way out of it. pretty much trying to go out with her pride in tack, but obviously that failed. and more then likely she was just being an idiot and overestimating her own power.

The stuff at the bottom is my power chart.

I don't think Chrysalis overestimated her power so much as underestimate the Love Shield's power. You bring up a good point about Chrysalis being too tired to fight Nightmare Moon.

yeah i don't get all the < and > stuff (i can never remember which means what) and why there are so many >>; if you could explain what you mean without them that'd be very helpful

you're probably right on that point, she underestimated the shields power not overestimated her own. that would make more sense.

Celestia "Luna... No... Have I lost you to the darkness again...?"
Nightmare Moon "Peace, sister... Rest now... I control the darkness, it no longer controls me... And it will never again... As for you... You bring harm to my kingdom and my ponies! I will no longer tolerate your presence... But I am a servant of justice, so I will offer you mercy... Take your pathetic minions and leave... If you decide instead to fight me, make no mistake... I'll kill you..."

Chrysalis: Please spare me
Nightmare: Very well, leave *as Nightmare turns her back, Chrysalis grins*
Chrysalis: Heh, fool. She may fancy herself stronger but she's not. Still, a drag out fight would damage the ponies and my hive needs them intact to feed. Best to take her quickly. FOOL!! *Chrysalis blasts Nightmare in the back before calling in her swarm to attack the already wounded pony*

Nightmare Moon easily pushes the swarm away.
Nightmare Moon "I warned you what would happen if you challenged me!  Now you will die...!"
As hard as Chrysalis tries she finds she's no match for Nightmare Moon, even with all the power she's absorbed.  Chrysalis finds herself on the ground unable to stand.
Nightmare Moon forms a sword of magic and plunges it right through Chrysalis.  She begins walking back towards Celestia butas she approaches she reverts to Princess Luna and collapses from exhaustion and her injuries.

Luna gets slammed back by a burst of psychic magic. 
Chrysalis: You fell for the old bait and switch, you blind foal. You stabbed an illusion of me. Now that your tuckered out, let's cut your throat, shall we
Cadence: Oh Chrysalis
Chrysalis: What?
*Shining Armor and Cadence are charging up their shield*
Chrysalis: Hah, you think I'll just stand her and let you power that up. I'll just make another bla-hey you're getting really brig-OH SHIT!!
*the shield hits Chrysalis and all the Changelings*
Chrysalis: I wonder if I should feel some irony in this loss but I'm too distracted by being sent at mach speed. Wait, is that a mountain? Huh, I'll just land on it and recover....wait, is it getting hotter. Oh God it's a volcano! 
*crashes into volcano*
Chrysalis: EVERYTHING IS BURNING!!

~BronyCurious, through a review of the Wedding of Canterlot on YouTube with *AntonyC, came up with one of the most amazing theory/Headcanons ever. I managed to save the segment of his theory as a link, which starts when towards the end of the episode, Luna comes back asking "Did I miss anything" [link]
