Butt-Stallion Says 'Hi' by phallen1 Butt-Stallion Says 'Hi' by phallen1
Handsome Jack, CEO of Hyperion Corporation and the villain-apparent of Borderlands 2, is so obscenely wealthy and so obscenely evil that he had a living pony made of diamond created, just to show off.

The diamond pony's name is Butt-Stallion. His life is agony. And that's the way Handsome Jack likes it.

For MLP-ATG-Alumni week 65: a wealthy pony. Also a pony made of wealth. This is the first pic I've done almost entirely using a tablet.

The MLP:FiM style belongs to Hasbro, and the Borderlands 2 characters belong to Gearbox Software et al.

"Oh god, the pretzels suck... How's your day been, buddy, it's been a while since I left you for dead. You think you're gonna freeze to death out there? Nah, the bandits will get ya first. I just bought a pony made of diamonds. Yeah, because i'm rich, so that's cool." "Oh, just to clarify, that diamond horse I have been telling you about... it's not a sculpture or anything, it's an ACTUAL pony
oh-actually... BUTT STALLION *whistle* COME HERE. *neigh* Butt stallion says hello."

You are not the first to point this out. Consider I drew this immediately after I got into the game, before I got very far into it.

Wait, is that a Pearlescent I see?

When I first drew this, BL2 was brand new and hadn't been fully documented/wiki'd, so I was drawing a lot of stuff from BL1 (the old red Hyperion gun, for example). Pearlescent was not yet a thing in BL2, but it was in BL1. So yes, you see a Pearlescent in the back amidst the pile of cash and Eridium.

Lucky me they use the same cyan for Pearls in BL2, huh? Lends me a little credibility.

this is the one time i'll gibe ponies a pass, lol. tho the bandit pistol seems odd, esp since he pans them in an eco recording.

I'll level with you: When I first drew the pic, I didn't have a good visual reference for BL2 Hyperion guns. The game had just come out and the wiki had not been updated yet. I wound up using a BL1 Hyperion gun as a reference; the best-quality Hyperions in the first game were this red scheme.

So this was a good Hyperion pistol from a few years ago. And now you know!

LOL The joke will never die.

Hyperion was one of my two favorite gun manufacturers in the first Borderlands (the other being Maliwan). If what you say is true, then I'll definitely need to try to take him down with one of his own weapons. Preferably painfully; must get revenge for Butt-Stallion!
