EDIT: Holy crap! It made EQD, and on the front page! 0_o

There it is... A full line up of the warriors of Harmony and Chaos. I rushed a bit towards the end because I wanted to submit this before the new episode.

The villains took a lot less time compared to the heroes because I already had a pretty clear idea for their design. The heroes took longer because I had to redesign their outfits since I am not blessed with Rarity's sense of fashion. LOL

I did use some images created by other artist in this picture as a base. (Cut me slack, this is my first pony drawing)

Yeah, I can't do flying ponies...

I probably will make some improvements later in the future. I think I made the villians a little too awesome. XD

This could use some Diamond Dog character. Perhaps one of the Diamond Dogs as Gilgamesh.
Why is there Spike was evil? really?

He's not evil. He's Jecht. =P
Hate that you made Spike a villainI am PISSED OFF!

If you look closely, he has Jecht's sword. So he's not really a villain but rather a good guy stuck on the side of chaos. 

My head canon would be that Spike gave up his light, life force to save Rarity when she was fatally wounded trying to save him. King Sombra took Spike's lifeless body and got Chaos to infuse it with the chaos energy, forcing him to be on the side of chaos.

Didn't you play the Dissidia games?
Nope I've never even heard of those games
Loved this pic. It's fantastic the way you molded everyone (or everypony, I should say) to be these final fantasy archeotypes, and the way you paired them up against each other was impressive as well. Im sure, like you, I wasnt the only one who had an idea for a lineup of charectors to use in a dissidia like idea. Although most of mine were fan characters like Little Pip fighting as well, since it added more depth for me. Thank you for making this!
