Søren Kierkegaard (but not really):

Princess Luna contrasts dramatically with the general dullness of equestrian society. She is a pony who truly lives, and therefore she is the best pony.

Kierkegaard was a 19th century philosopher who is known as one of the fathers of existentialism. He criticized his society for its lack of passion. This quote expresses his opinion:

Søren Kierkegaard (really):

Let other complain that the age is wicked; my complaint is that it is paltry; for it lacks passion. Men’s thoughts are thin and flimsy like lace, they are themselves pitiable like the lacemakers. The thoughts of their hearts are too paltry to be sinful. For a worm it might be regarded as a sin to harbor such thoughts, but not for a being made in the image of God. Their lusts are dull and sluggish, their passions sleepy…This is the reason my soul always turns back to the Old Testament and to Shakespeare. I feel that those who speak there are at least human beings: they hate, they love, they murder their enemies, and curse their descendants throughout all generations, they sin.

With this in mind, I thought that Luna’s over-the-top personality would resonate with Kierkegaard. She was an obvious choice.
