So yes! Here's my re-envisioning of the MLP characters as TF2 classes! Why? Because I had nothing better to do! I kept four characters as their usual classes, but the rest I kinda flipped around and switched at my own leisure.

I actually have reasons for each class - I was very purposeful in putting who where!

Twilight Sparkle (Medic Sparkle)
I picked a Medic for Twilight because it was more fitting for her, character and skill-wise. Twilight is a scientific mind, and it has been said of the Medic that the 'healing' nature of his experiments are mere side-effects. His scientific enthusiasm, I felt, made him and Twilight a perfect match-up!

Fluttershy (Flutterpyro)
Now, this might seem a stretch, but bare with me; all of the classes have some method of murder. Even the Medic comes with his needle guns and his bonesaws. Only one class, however, has the dillusion (that I am aware of) of doing GOOD. Perhaps in a fit of insanity or drug-enduced hallucination, Fluttershy blows rainbows at her friends (shoots fire at her enemies) and tickles them silly (burns them to death).

Applejack (Sniperjack)
Complete with "Apple Juice", I figured the Sniper's hunter history, his patience, and his code of sniping (be efficient, be polite, have a plan to kill everyone you meet) was somehow fitting for Applejack. Plus, a hat!

Derpy (Solderp)
What else? A close runner up with Braeburn, I had to pick Derpy because... well... Derpy is fun! Plus, I can picture her saying "Take that, Bablo Babbins!" and "Look out! He's got a book!"

Pinkie Pie (Engie-Pie)
Pinkie is random; everyone knows this. Her randomness may not fit the Engineer personality-wise, but his method of setting up sentry nests does. Armed with her Sentry-model Party Cannons and her Party Favor Dispensers (Pinkie-Porter not shown here), Pinkie is ready to throw a little party for all her friends to enjoy when they need a break from blowing each other to pony-bits!

Then, of course, we got the other four, who are in more common match-ups.

Big Mac (Heavy Weapons McIntosh)
Fitting for his heavy build, implied physical strength, and giant size. It wouldn't be right to do this without the iconic brony.

Rainbow Dash (Rainbow Scout)
Fast, able to jump high, and headstrong. Seriously, who else could I match her up with? Probably Demoman. Then again, I coulda made Applejack the Soldier... 'twould have made sense. Hindsight is 20/20.

Rarity (Rarispy)
With a more 'professional' attire, a sabatour way of combat, and a more 'delicate' touch, the Spy remains ideal for Rarity. Plus, she can insult ponies' fashion sense while disguised as them.

Zecora (Demozebra)
A nack for mixing is the bread and butter of both the Demoman and Zecora (even if they tend to mess with considerably different chemicals) not to mention Zecora strikes me as having a great deal of physical prowess.

A lot of people are actually ARGUING with me about this, pointing out who they think fits better with what class - fun fact, most of them associate others to classes they don't fit. Not sure if it's from an act of favoritism or simply an act of 'I don't like change' because most, if not all, of the complainers are using the popular concept.

Folks, I feel I should point out I INTENTIONALLY IGNORED the popular concepts. Why? Because I like my idea better and view the popular concept as fundamentally flawed. What does Twilight have in common with Sniper (no, sniping is NOT math, it's calculating, yes, but that barely scratches the surface of her character). What does Fluttershy have in common with Medic? Healing? What about the immoral experiments, the killing tools, and turning her allies into death machines? I disagree - she'd make a better Sniper than Twilight, really. Psycho Pinkie just got old, so I put her somewhere I felt worked just as well.

So yes, so EVERYONE KNOWS, I DO KNOW THE POPULAR CONCEPT. I just don't like it, and tried to use a little more sense in where I put who.

Also. Yes, I left Spike out. Why? Because babies don't belong on the battle field. I don't care how mature they are. Deal with it.

can i ask something?

I love to know more about this project and what inspired you to give the roles to the ponies you gave them to.

like why is fluttershy the Pyro and not Pinkie?
Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2014
Well, in my favored linup, Fluttershy is Sniper.

However, here, I've made it in the description; Pyro is the only class that seems to be able to ignore the fact anyone is actually being harmed.  Even the Medic has his bonesaws and needle guns (both of which are psychologically terrifying weapon ideas) and promotes war through healing; the Pyro is the only one who seems to be under the illusion he's doing good.

Pinkie Pyro? Just kind of boring.  You got Pyrovision, but that's the end of it; afterwards, you got Pinkie limited to a mumble and being a highly predictable W+M1 class (yes I'm aware you can also airblast people; still nothing special, amazing, or fun).

i guess when you put it like that it makes sense but couldn't that go the same for most of the other ponies to? or do you think not because the rest fit the role they have so well. such as rainbow scout and Heavy Mac.

Personally i like the the Flutter sniper set up seeing how you used angel bunny makes sense given how he can munipulate fluttershy to such a degree it has added to some fan hatered of the character

Oh, I'm certain all of them could fill any role if you really set your mind to it.  I just wanted to put them in roles that did not heavily alter or sacrifice character traits as the popular lineup does.

you make a valid point
Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
More and more people seem to agree with me as time roles on... so much so I think my setup is slowly starting to topple the popular setup.

My evil influence is growing. :iconinglipplz:

Well when you give a genuine intellectual response that has depth to it is resonates with people who analyze things in a similar way
Metal-Kitty Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
Yeah, but the same can be said for those who analyze things more lazily.

I'd think Fluttershy as the medic personally, and twilight as the sniper.
