This is how Midnight tries to recruit Twilight to join him goes in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.
[Twilight finds herself
Midnight: Wake up, little princess. Wake up. No, you're not dead yet. Just paralyzed... ...temporarily.
Twilight Sparkle: Midnight!
[Midnight lands and furls his wings]
Midnight: You're an amazing one, Princess Twilight. You and I are not so different.
Twilight Sparkle: I'm not like you. You're a Predalien/Alicorn hybrid creature who wants to destroy me.
Midnight: Well, to each his own. I chose my path, you chose the way of the hero. And they found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually they will hate you. Why bother?
Twilight Sparkle: Because it's right.
Midnight: [slaps Twilight on the head] Here's the real truth. There are eight million people in this city. And those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional ones onto their shoulders. You, me, we're exceptional. [leans in and grabs Twilight's chin] I could squash you like a bug right now. But I'm offering you a choice. Join me. Imagine what we could accomplish together. What we could create. Or we could destroy. [releases Twilight's chin] Cause the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle again and again and again until we're both dead. Is that what you want? [unfurls his wings] Think about it, princess.
[Midnight then flies away]
[Twilight then goes to Sunset Shimmer]
