"What is better...to be born good, or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?" -Paarthurnax, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim


Vaati the Wind Mage has grown bored with the whole villain thing. He's trapped himself in a cycle doomed to repeat itself forever. Seeking a way to escape this miserable cycle of escape, kidnapping, and defeat, the legendary sorcerer inadvertantly teleports himself to another world entirely; a world populated by talking magical ponies who believe friendship is magic. Just how will the former villain survive this sugar bowl of a world? Will he end up learning a few lessons in friendship himself? One thing's for sure, retirement has never been this exciting.

AUTHOR NOTE: This story takes place in an episodic format. That is, it follows the style of the show in that every chapter is an 'episode', hence why they will all be lengthy. Some episodes will be canon ones with Vaati along for the ride, and others will be original where Vaati takes center-stage. The first episode takes place shortly after 'Griffon the Brush-Off'. Vaati is from Legend of Zelda and is property of Nintendo. You already know who owns FiM.

Okay, there is a lack of support for this story, and I just want to say, on behalf of the readers, you, my man, are doing a great job. Keep it up!:twilightsmile:

Liked and fav'd. Keep up the great work. By the way, I lost it when pinkie pulled out a candy-cane battle axe:rainbowlaugh:. Just picturing that makes me lol!

Have a mustache :moustache: or perhaps two :moustache: :moustache:.

Nice work on this. Vaati is probably my second favorite Zelda villain behind Ghirahim. (I love that guy's dialogue!) Vaati, of course has more depth to him because he's been in more games. (Minish cap was a great game)

Anyways, liking the way this story is going so far. Have a like, favorite, and a Mustache...or two. :moustache: :moustache:

For some reason I always slip into Fnnish after saying his name. NO MATTER. Svgb, AWAAAAAAAY

Edit: Just a quick thing, the pronunciation is actually a Finnish word, add an a to the end of the spelling for another.

Well, it did just get approved last night. It has a lot of support on Fanfiction.net.

Now, let's not get too ahead of ourselves here. Other Zelda characters aren't showing up in the main story...though I have a little surprise in store for the season finale. (Yes, this means this will have a sequel.) And the chapters are long because I want to make this like the show; each chapter is like a 20 minute episode.

Not really fond of Ghirahim, for reasons I'll keep to myself. I didn't think much of Vaati after I first heard of him, but after I got Minish Cap, the guy kinda grew on me. My favorite villain's Majora because of his vague backstory and extremely frightening sadism.:pinkiecrazy:

I've never seen the Finnish language, so none of that made sense to me, unfortunately.:derpyderp2:

Oh HELL YES. Haven't read it yet but HOLY CRAP, I've been looking for a Vaati fic for awhile now!




Fix dat shit yo.

Still followed due to great idea and flawless merging concept.

1545002 Love Vaati mostly because of the $ swords misadventures series by hadukendude on newgrounds and youtube.

but I LOVE GIRHIRAHIM. hes just so camp. gonna read this now.

Well, I am new to the whole FiMFiction scene. I just copy-and-pasted this from my Word document. Any ideas on how I could fix it? That really would be greatly appreciated.

A refreshing in equestria now story. too common are the characters brought to the world needlessly violent or just like screw friendship. (even if it is in character )

I shall fave and thumbs up this.

YOU sir, Are FRIKKING AWESOME! I'm adding this to my Top Ten List. Only 3 spaces have been taken so far, and This , as is, is #1. I cannot WAIT to see how this goes!

“Darn right I can hear you, cotton wad!”

At some point, Fluttershy will surely ask Vaati to teach Angel about being slightly less rude. I wonder how that'd work out...

Dude... I just read all of this on fanfiction and when I saw this on here I thought "HOLY SHIT ITS AN UPDATE" I get to the end and its not an update....:ajbemused: What... the fuck man. Wtf. You crushed what tiny piece of hope I have. :fluttercry: Better freaking write this next chapter quick!!! :flutterrage:

Friendship? This idiot princess wanted him to learn about the magic of friendship? He had spent his whole life without friends, and look at where he was now!

Oh wait.
funniest moment eva:rainbowlaugh:

Sorry to crush your hopes like that. It finally got approved after five weeks of waiting, so...yeah. The next chapter won't be for a while, unfortunately. Consider it a late Halloween update.

I am shamed to admit the only Zelda game i ever played was Link's Awakening therefore i know next to nothing about most characters in the series.
But i really like this story.

1546552 wow hes as destructive with words as i am.

Gilda doesn't show up for a long time. This whole thing takes place sometime after "Griffon the Brush-Off."

1546752 darn, but still its funny to imagine what would happen if gilda pull the shit she does in her epsiode in front of vaati


Don't get me wrong. Majora's Mask is my Zelda favorite game. I've just never really considered Majora that big a villian. (I'd LOVE to see more background on it though - and maybe a comeback too.) Sure. The mask brainwashed and controlled the skull kid to destroy Termina, and spread chaos amongst its residents one way or another. But aside from that, you don't actually do much aside from freeing the giants to counter and then fight its incarnation until the endgame. The sheer depth and intricacy of the game itself is what makes MM the masterpiece it is. I'd definitely rate Majora over Ganondorf though.

I'd love to see Vaati make a comeback. He's pretty darn wicked and I LOVE his theme. I'm actually replaying Minish Cap atm on my 3DS. I know I beat the game, it's just been so long that I don't remember absolutely everything about it.

I can understand not liking the guy. Ghirahim is freaking weird - and also overly "FABULOUS". I just found his witty dialogue and overly eccentric (yet cruel) actions more entertaining (I laughed pretty hard at a few of his lines) and refreshing than Ganondorf's "Hurrr imma capture the princess, laugh manically, assemble the Triforce, and take over Hyrule" shtick. He pretty much got more depth to him in one game than Ganondorf did in his many appearances combined.

Skyward Sword is certainly not the best Zelda game ever - but a lot of its mechanics (and its soundtrack!) are brilliant. (Also, Fi is infinitely worse than Navi. BY FAR. I'd rather have Midna or Tatl)

Excellent! I approve of this story! :D

I won't argue with that. Ghirahim definitely had more personality than the good ol' G-Dorf, just not the kind I'm fond of. Also your summarization of Ganon's personality made me lol hard.

Vaati glanced at the cupcakes in question. There were so many, all various colors and flavors. “Perhaps,” Vaati said. “Perhaps.”

First thought was an aged sorcerer, with a Gandalf-level beard, stroking it and contemplating mysteries of the universe, and how they related to the cupcakes.

He "talks" in Skyward Sword, but that's pretty much it.

Minish cap was my gateway zelda game, my love for the series is only rivaled by pony and Doctor Who.

This story is one of the few on this site that intrigues me. Your grammer is impeccable, and the stories are well thought out, particularly this one, which seems to be an original from the actual series. I am hopeful for confrontations between Vaati and/or Discord and Chrysalis in this story's future, the new [anti]hero versus two of My Little Pony's most powerful villains. Plus, I see no foreseeable yaoi, which pleases me to no end!:yay:
Good luck and I hope to see more!

is this what Vaati does in the time where fighting all the octo thingys and snakes? He talks to Zelda and watches TV via the eyeball surveillance?

Human in Equestria story involving Vaati. A lot more words per chapter than is usual for HiE stories.

Thumbs up and favorited. Before I even started reading. This is going to be so awesome. :rainbowkiss:

1547109 He says Meow and C'mon in Wind Waker.

Loved it.:heart:
I can't wait for the next update. :rainbowkiss:

GAH! Forgot about that! :pinkiegasp:

It technically still isn't full-on conversing, but what the heck.

I have to criticize you on how closely you're sticking to the original episodes.
It shows a lack of originality and it's incredibly boring to read what is essentially the script to something everyone here has already read.

Its skin was deathly pale, and the long hair growing out of its head lavender.

I believe a "was" is missing between head and lavender. Nice chapter otherwise.

This is a really good story, the premise alone intrigued me. I look forward to more chapters.

1542927 Whats scarier than that thought. . . Pinkie as Majora's Puppet. . . or Majora as Pinkie's servant? :rainbowderp: :twilightoops: :derpyderp2: :applejackconfused: :pinkiecrazy:

“She’s mysterious,” Fluttershy said.
“Sinister!” Rainbow Dash added.
“And spooooky!” Pinkie finished.
Vaati, still glancing out the window, interrupted, “So am I. I don’t see any of you complaining.”

Vaati, you made my day :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

You have the valid point, but if I can play Gannon's Advacate, Chapter 1 and 4 are in my opinion the best of the (current) bunch. My resioning is this: Chapter 1 sets teh story up, introducing Vaati to Equestria. Chapter 4 is a product of the author's plotline instead of an episode with Vaati.

THe story is pretty good, but in my opinion it woul dbe better if you made more chatpers like 4.

Oh my gosh! so hysterical! :rainbowlaugh:

Ok, this is an interesting character to use. I'm liking this story.

I'm loving Vaati. He is mildly sarcastic(taking life seriously when you are as old as he gets boring), he's distant and cold, but the seeds of Friendship have been planted. He is also wise and just a little evil. Just a little.

1546616 speaking of destructive words, foos ro DAH!!! :scootangel:

Why didn't Vaati try and tell Opalesence to stop clawing his face off?
Unless Opal was in a blind rage and unable to form a coherent sentence other than an angry Meow, if so, then that's my mistake :scootangel:

Please for the love of jeebus stop with the giant walls of text and put a few fucking blank lines into your story GAWD! you had them in the first chapter so why not have them now or if you didn't then... well I DON'T GIVE A FUCK! thank you dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/Pinkie_Pie_lolface.png
PS luv ur story dl.dropbox.com/u/31471793/FiMFiction/emoticons/shrug_Twilight_Sparkle.png

well this is certainly an unexpected crossover. unexpected, but intriguing.
i always loved LoZ: The Minish Cap, will definitely have to find the time to read this.

Dear sir/madam,
Thou hast touched my heart with this beautiful piece- It made me laugh and also made me cry. :pinkiesad2:
I love the way you keep the mane six in character, and I adore Vaati's antics. :twilightsmile:
It makes me really happy inside to know that people like you are part of this fandom.
