Behold, Equestria's biggest d-bag!
|Fan voice(s)||Mic the Microphone (EPRBoE #2)|
The great "Prince" Blueblood is a favorite punching-bag for the fandom. This is understandable considering how un-chivalrous he was to Rarity during the Grand Galloping Gala; one does not treat a member of the Mane 6 badly without retribution in art and fics.
Blueblood is the go-to stallion if you need an obstructive bureaucrat, obnoxious noble, or embarrassingly stuck-up and conceited "great-to-the-nth-degree" nephew for Celestia and Luna to deal with in Canterlot. He ranges from simply annoying and dumb to convinced that the entire world should bow to him to plotting Ponyville's destruction to punish Rarity and her friends for ruining the Gala, but no matter his role, it's usually comedy driven, very much like his role in the show itself.
Rarity is seen as mostly having no romanic interst in Blueblood after the Gala. On occasion, people try to reform him into a proper noble, worthy of Rarity's attention.[R 1][R 2] A few times some will state that both Rarity and Blueblood were in the wrong, Rarity for making assumption on Blueblood's character and Blueblood for the obvious, like in "Blueblood has a" by Hare Trinity.
Twilight is another pony commonly shipped with Blueblood. Some feature Blueblood being a jerk to Rarity because he had eyes on Twilight first.[R 3] Others have her forced into an arranged marriage to him.[R 4]
He is also shipped with Shining Armor.
