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.

That is flat out cute. And cruel...
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!
ah, fair enough. i miss bl1 hyperion, they used to be my fav brand before the stabilizer bs. (the crimson paintjobs were badass too.)
Since when did Jack use Bandit weapons?
