With these two characters from the show, MLP:FIM.
We all know at first that they would be fictional characters instead of real characters.
Until then our headcanon dreams are over because of season 4 episode, "Daring Don't" made it happen.
I felt disappointed that Daring Do IS A.K. Yearling, and Ahuizotl is a REAL VILLAIN.
Looking back on them now.... I kinda like these two.
I recently got myself a Daring Do book, The Eternal Flower. In my opinion it was ok, but the rest of the story was enjoyable to read. What I find disappointing about the book, I can nick-pick about it all day but I'll just cut to the chase.
Ahuizotl wanted the flower to gain immortality and to rule over equestria. Touche. Instead he got tricked, shrunk, and Daring Do saved the day. What I find interesting about Ahuizotl and Daring Do is this, first Daring Do, she's independent, cunning and fierce and also her uncle is a unicorn that part I don't get. Now as for Ahuizotl, one sentence in that book got me thinking about him as a creature entirely, Ahuizotl asked his minions to build a raft for him to cross a stream of water. Ahuizotl can't swim, or is he afraid of water...?
Let that sink in a moment or two. Ahuizotl has cats on his side, yet hes described as "part dog" from the book, so is Ahuizotl really a cat..? I'm not to sure. Ahuizotl is one confusing character as neither cat nor dog, but Ahuizotl as a creature is described as this;
"The creature is dog-like, its waterproof fur often clumping up to create spikes (hence its name). The ahuizotl has hands capable of manipulation and an additional hand on its tail. The ahuizotl is feared due to its liking for human flesh, especially nails, eyes, and teeth. It is said to live in or near the water and to use the hand on the end of its tail to snatch its prey, dragging the person into the depths to drown them."
This Aztec monster is reason's why I love him as a villain.
Here's the downfall with these two characters, Daring Do is a copy-and-paste of Rainbowdash.
Ahuizotl isn't considered another 'good villain', like King Sombra or Discord. He's just another lame villain, like Flim and Flam or "Iron Will" (he isn't a bad guy, he's just trying to motivate ponies to not being a doormat) Ahuizotl is just one of those villains to gain power and rule over equestria, blah blah blah, cat's blah.
What i want with these two characters is a good backstory, reasons why they're rivalry's in the first place!
Take a look at the Fiendship is magic comic series, there's only one villain that's missing, Ahuizotl, we never get a chance to discover what he is or what his backstory is about.
Here's my headcanon idea between Ahuizotl and Daring Do.
[ Ahuizotl is the last of his kind, his people were hunted down by ponies to be used as trophies, but one pony stood out to him giving him the reason why he's hated Daring Do and the ponies from the very beginning, Daring Do's mother. Daring's mother killed Ahuizotl's parents and people. And so as time passed by, Ahuizotl's hate grew and grew, soon enough he got his revenge on the pony who killed his kind, Daring do was a filly at the time, she witnessed her family slaughtered by Ahuizotl. And so the rivalry hate between Ahuizotl and Daring Do has begun ever since.]
Pretty dark right? LIKE BATMAN!
Ok maybe a bit too dark...
But I hope you enjoyed reading this, and as always, Adios mi amigo's!
