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.

Thank you for your opinion on alicorn OC's. I make my alicorn OC as some pony that doesn't have much magic, cannot fly fast, and not so strong, but use knowledge as his weapon. This setting is so different from yours, which 'shows' that there's much difference between each two alicorns.(I thought that this would happen, and I prove myself right, yay.)

However, if I decided to join RP, and the host doesn't accept alicorn OC, I think I have to make a new unicorn OC, because 'always be an alicorn' is one of the settings of my alicorn OC.

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.

Seems that I can keep my alicorn OC, as I've made some settings that makes this race much more balanced.
I'm a really new brony. Really, because the first time I watch MLP is just 2 months ago. After watched the whole series, I decided to make my own OC.

Most OC's on the Internet are one of the EUP. That makes sense, because EUP never gets too OP, if there's no further setting.

However I've heard (from some posts in 2013) that most bronies hate (at least don't like) alicorn OC's, and seems that the main reason is that alicorns should be god, so that it shouldn't be used as an OC in community. Other reasons (I think) include that alicorns are princess, that alicorns are too OP, or that alicorns are better than EUP.

But I don't know what really do you think of alicorn OC's. I don't know whether those reasons are correct or wrong. So I'm here to post this topic and hope for answer.

ps. Even after I know that someone don't like alicorn OC's, I still choose to make my OC an alicorn, because in my opinion alicorn should be equal to EUP, and alicorn is now a little worse than EUP, not better than them. And here's my OC, if you really want to see. The name of it is the ID I usually use, FlameRat.

The picture of it

The setting of it, sorry but I havn't translate it, and I won't because this is only a draft. So if you can't read Chinese, you have to wait before I officially post this OC.
