I know that my first OC was a pony maker alicorn, but as I sought to actually use a character in any sort of RP I decided to remove his wings so that he wasn't an alicorn, due to the popular stigma. I also learned to vector to make him a (IMO) proper OC, as well as add a ton of character flaws. This is now my OC Match Stick (link in signature). Later on I've planned for Match to ascend into a Quasi-Alicorn, but only because he swore himself to an outside entity which granted him power at the price of his freedom. He is then to become a villain that fights all of his old friends and colleagues, as well as the royal guard. This transformation might be a huge power boost, but I'm also increasing the scale of his opposition as well as introducing new character flaws.
What I'm trying to get at is that the wish to be an alicon is a power fantasy, as well as an easy OC to make. You don't have to pick between Magic, Flight, or Strength. The important thing is that your trying, and if you really want to create a memorable character that is fun to RP as, don't pick the golden standard. Be unique, have flaws, and have fun.

Mainly because people who make their OCs alicorns make them some OP, black/red or black/white, flawless character. So the characters are mostly bad hence bronies assume if it's an alicorn it's bad.
Like most I dislike bad OCs but not alicorns as long as it's well made.
