  I'm trying to find a very evil mythological horse. I've been flipping through my old D&D books and saw the Nightmare in the Monster Manual. Looks like it'd be pretty fun to make, except I'm unable to find a reasonable likeness in folklore. I'm just wondering if anyone has a good one that they know off the top of their heads?

  There are a number of folklorish horses which beckon a rider at night and then do horrible things to him, all while preventing the poor soul from dismounting. This is actually one of the forms of Kelpie, which just goes to show how wacky that guy is.
  
  Gobbo knows about one horse whose head is a giant ball of fire.
  
  Other than those, I am pretty sure that Nightmare was just a pun more than anything else.

  Groovy. Before I get ahead of myself here, I wanted to put forth a little idea. I was kinda hoping to make a monster, either the Pegasus or the Unicorn. But I thought a neat mechanic would be that once you got it to it's 2nd or 3rd stage of evolution, if your valor was 30 or lower it'd become a corrupt, evil version. Which is why I'm asking if there's any neat evil ponies out there.

  Well, any monsters out there would be, y'know, their own monster line entirely. Unless the lore actually depicts a single monster growing up multiple ways, it won't happen here. Even brothers like Skinfaxi and Hrimfaxi are separate entities.
  
  Besides, isn't the "evil" Unicorn just the Monoceros?
  
I hear that Space Trombone is the way all the cool kids are sharing music these days.

  Damn. Worth a shot. Oh well. Might pick one and make it anyways, but only if I can overcome my crushing laziness.
  
  Spells on the other hand can work that way, right? Doesn't Nidhogg do something like that?

  Yes, spells can differentiate. Monsters can also gain access to different skills and techs based on Valor.
