Actually, no. The true Objectivist Hero is Chrysalis. By exerting her personal will over the unwashed masses, she was leading them to a better world, a better world only their small minds would oppose. Is it not the nature of the great to rise to power over their inferiors?

I don't know, arguably Chrysalis failed in her ideals because she had to resort to the violence of the state in her effort to eradicate the state. That she was better in wielding it doesn't make her morally superior.

But Trixie? Pulled down by the weak and small-minded after she demonstrated her inherent superiority. Her entertainment was a valuable service for the ponies of Equestria, boosting morale, and in fair exchange for a fair wage. She's a capitalist icon, and the jealous masses couldn't abide that.

...You know, I'd make a comment about Photo Finish here. But I actually adore Photo Finish so I'm gonna let it end here.

You are maintaining an impossible standard for objectivism here.

Consistency.
