Not a tyrant, not a troll.

Celestia is best princess. One thousand years of peace, friendship and harmony prove it. But with a heavy heart about her beloved sister.

no, Celestia is the most WEAK princess(SUN FANS GO FU*** ops sorry )Princess Celestia does not help does not serve for anything she is useless and put all the problens on on work of the mane six all problens on Mane Six hoofs on ALL seasons of the MLP, 

She not  helped on nothing on all seasons, she only it only serves to sit with her big fat  flank on  the throne and pretend to have power(but she not have power)  and she is the most weak princess(Princess Luna used her power to appear for a few seconds  to advise Starlight OF THE CHANGELINGS TO HELP ALL (Princess Luna have more power ? I think yes)  and Princess Celestia make what ? NOTHING) , she takes a beating for every villain who appears until Flurry Heart have more power than her and Flurry Heart IS A BABY ALICORN.

Well, i hope you didn't forget that she's the RULER of Equestria;(an entire kingdom!) a role of which one would be undoubtedly very busy with. She's been raising the sun AND the moon and maintaining Equestria in a good shape at the same time for a thousand years; and i'd say she did a pretty good job; now i'd like to see YOU pull that off. 
Also, it's mildly inadequate that the ruler of a kingdom goes solve problems personally, big powerful people don't personally go fight battles or sort out problems personally, they send troops to do that instead. Did Bush go to Iraq to fight terrorists alongside the marines? No. Did Obama personally put a bullet in Osama's head? No either. 
Besides, Celestia can't personally go into every danger and die by chance, if that happens, there would be only one pony left to rule Equestria and Luna would find that all the extra workload isn't what she's cut out to be; that would endanger Equestria of crumbling down because of ineffective government.

Furthermore, I believe she rarely participates in a fight because she doesn't want her subjects to start always relying on her for every crisis; they need to learn to take care of themselves and exercise their self-sufficiency. Kami from Dragon Ball puts it best: "It would not do for any man to begin saying, "Well, if things get bad, God will fix it." In the end, Earthlings must depend on their own power to find their way through." And he's got a point. 
Tell you what, i'll just share a few words with you from the mare herself trying to explain such passive behavior that seems to bother ya'll so much. 

"I am very powerful, and there are many things i can do. And yes, sometimes i have let Twilight take care of an incident that i could have cleared away easily. But i do not do this because i am cruel, or because i want to play a joke on Twilight...I do this because i am her teacher, and sometimes, this is how she must learn." -Princess Celestia, MLPFiM Comic "Friends Forever" Issue #3

However, she isn't entirely useless. In fact, she DOES personally intervene when it's necessary. In Swarm of the Century she rescued Fillydelphia from an infestation. In Lesson Zero she stopped the chaos at Ponyville which Twilight had set up. Also, in Return of Harmony - Part 2 she cured Twilight from Discord's influence by sending all her previous friendship reports back for her to read them. In A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2 Celestia put her life on the line when she attempted to stop Queen Chrysalis, and no doubt she would've won, had Shining Armor's love for Cadance not been so strong, and had Chrysalis not absorbed so much of it by that point. I mean, from Chrysalis's dialogue, even she was shocked that she was able to beat Celestia. In the MLPFiM Comic Issue #4, Celestia defends Canterlot from a horde of giant mutant cockatrices. And according to her first comic micro series she once helped protect Canterlot from an attack.

Also, i wonder why Luna never gets any flack for being "useless", huh?. Don't you ever wonder where she was or what she was doing while Celestia was confronting Queen Chrysalis? Don't get me wrong though; I'm not bashing Luna or anything; i'm just stating the fact that she's over-hyped and barely, rarely gets HALF of the flack that Celestia does, which could have given to Luna for pretty much the same reasons.

None of the other princesses can claim to have hold the power for a full thousand year all alone! Raising and setting the Sun and the Moon all that time, while maintaining the peace and harmony in the land and with the neighbors land of Equestria. Luna was sent IN (not ON) the Moon as corrupted-self Nightmare Moon. Cadance was a pegasus she transformed into a alicorn, many centuries after Luna's lunar banishment. So, in all that time, Celestia was alone.

I love Luna more that Celestia, but Luna have a lot to do get at her sister's level. She helped and she got helped by the Mane6. She still has to learn despite her age. She lost a millennia of knowledge after all. She can go into dreams, something her sister cannot, so that helped. And if Starlight wasn't not dreaming, she would have been unable to contact her. Talk about luck. Flurry Heart... now that a case who brought heartburns... That baby can't control her power, so she was probably at maximum power most of the time. Celestia can control her own and I bet could easily handle her's... uh... grandniece's power.

We can't wait for an episode about her and clear many many questionings. But I'm sure she felt relieved to finally share her duties with Luna, Cadance and Twilight and finally have some free time. I still question myself why she is mostly absent, but I guess she put all her trust into Twilight and her friends to resolve them. Yeah, yeah... lazy, but safe from harm. But put the blame on the writers. People demand more Celestia. And Luna.

But I got to say there is one problem in the finale's story.... How come Celestia did nothing despite her ability of prepositional dreams? She could have at least do something or... what? And it proves how the their military defense is really bad.

Celestia was never a tyrant. Sure she rules most of Equestria, but I never ever see her as this oppressive matriarch.

I like celestia. But she isn't a tyrant. Just because she gave a punishment doesn't mean she is evil. I honestly don't like luna . She is weird. She was cute in season one, but luna eclipsed just kinda ruined her.

As far as I know it stems from the show...in some episodes many ponies expect very harsh punishment for tiny misdeeds when Celestia is around.To many this seemed totally out of place considering how kind and merciful Celestia is,so some started to speculate that perhaps she has not always been kind and merciful....that at some point she ruled with an "iron hoof".

In the official comics Celestia tells to Spike that she decided to become closer to her subjects after Luna's banishment...so while the "tyrant Celestia" is clearly overdoing for the laughs she may have once ruled differently...the episode Luna Eclipsed gives some idea since Luna behaves in the "old way" so possible Celestia too may have used to be more like that.

Honestly speaking, that's Twilight being overly paranoid for the most part. She's prone to panic attacks, so I take that with a grain of salt.

And that was like 1000 years ago. Of course she would have ruled differently, Equestria wasn't exactly as peaceful as it is now.
