Depiction in films
In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Lyra Heartstrings appears as a student of Canterlot High School. As a result of the Dazzlings' hypnotic singing, they frequently argue with their fellow students, including Octavia Melody.
In the CHS Musical Showcase, Lyra and Sweetie Drops perform a piano duet—their vocals are obscured by the Dazzlings' Under Our Spell—but they are eliminated from the competition in the second round by Trixie and the Illusions. Near the end of Under Our Spell, they hold Derpy back from fighting with Bulk Biceps.
In the Rainbow Rocks musical short Life is a Runway, Lyra appear on the sidewalk as Rarity passes by. Rarity magically gives her different outfits, and she models this outfit on a fashion runway. Lyra is last seen with Sweetie Drops browsing clothes at Carousel Boutique.
In Friendship Games, Lyra Heartstrings appears as a member of the Canterlot High School Wondercolts, often seen in Flash Sentry's company. During a welcoming party for Crystal Prep Academy in the CHS gymnasium, Lyra mingles with Upper Crust.
During the Friendship Games' Academic Decathlon, Sweetie Drops is partnered with Flash Sentry in the home economics round, where they bake a loaf of bread instead of a cake, and Lyra and Sweetie Drops are partnered together in the woodshop round.
Lyra and Sweetie Drops are the central characters of the Friendship Games animated short All's Fair in Love & Friendship Games. They are portrayed as best friends who have known each other since at least eighth grade and frequently finish each other's sentences. However, when the Friendship Games tryouts begin, they become extremely competitive and face off in several random and non-sequitur events. In the end, both Lyra and Sweetie Drops make the team and reconcile with a hug.
Lyra Heartstrings appear alongside Sweetie Drops in the Equestria Girls mobile app.
