Pinkie Pie, full name Pinkamena Diane Pie, is a student from Canterlot High and one of the main characters of Equestria Girls. She is the head of party planning committee at Canterlot High who works to host parties for her friends at Canterlot. Pinkie is also the drummer for her band, The Rainbooms. Pinkie is energetic and sociable, and she represents the element of laughter.
Depiction in Equestria Girls
After Twilight is made a fool of by videos of her using the library's computers (filmed by Snips and Snails at Sunset Shimmer's behest), Pinkie Pie comes to help her, alongside the rest of her four friends, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash. At this point, it is revealed that she and her four friends had been driven apart by the machinations of Sunset Shimmer. Fluttershy particularly dislikes Pinkie for ruining her silent auction for the animal shelter by bringing noisemakers. When Twilight shows them that Sunset Shimmer is responsible for everything, they reconcile, and help Twilight become Princess of the Fall Formal.
When Twilight starts explaining who she really is, Pinkie accurately guesses on "a hunch" that Twilight is a pony princess from an alternate world on a mission to retrieve a "magical element", which is the Fall Formal crown, and that she need to win the Princess of Fall Formal contest against Sunset Shimmer to get her crown before the portal to Equestria would close for thirty moons.
When Sunset threatens Twilight after begin corrupted by the Element of Magic and tries to eliminate Twilight, Pinkie Pie and the others protect her, and the Element of Magic, refusing to kill its true wielder, imbues Pinkie with the Element of Laughter, giving her a half-pony form, allowing her and the others to defeat Sunset and reform her. Pinkie Pie then helps with teaching Sunset the true value of friendship after Twilight returns home to Equestria. After Sunset Shimmer's defeat, Pinkie tries to follow Twilight through the portal, but the portal closes.
The human Pinkie has the same cartoonish aspects as her pony counterpart. At one point, she picks one of the balloon patterns off her skirt and inflates it like an actual balloon. She also wishes for "some kind of... party cannon that could decorate everything super fast!" This is an object that her pony counterpart already owns. She even guessed the entire reason Twilight has come to their world, right down to the smallest detail, complete with the squeaky grin at the end.

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks
In the movie sequel My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks and its tie-in animated shorts, Pinkie plays the drums in her friends' band, the Rainbooms. She is first seen in the film helping her friends make a poster for the CHS Musical Showcase. Instead of paste, she uses cake frosting, which makes the poster smell like cake. Unlike the first film, the sequel gives human Pinkie more cartoonish gags, including hanging upside down from the top of the frame, using one of her kick-drums as a party cannon, playing a hand of four Jokers in a card game with Applejack, and having a refrigerator full of cans of whipped cream. Also, in this film, Pinkie has a tendency to skip instead of walk, much like pony Pinkie's tendency to hop instead of walk.
When the Rainbooms are at each other's throats over who is to blame for their predicament in the climax, Pinkie thinks that being in the Rainbooms is now the opposite of fun. After Sunset gets the Rainbooms to see their mistake and forgive each other, Pinkie is ecstatic that the band is back together to defeat the Dazzlings.

Pinkie Pie appears briefly at the Sweet Shoppe with her friends, waving to DJ Pon-3 when she enters. Notably, her waving is faster than the others, despite everything being in slow motion.
Pinkie Pie appears with her friends at the music store and suggests instruments for Rainbow Dash to buy, including a banjo and a tuba. Towards the end, after Trixie Lulamoon vows for revenge against Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie pops back at the entrance and "corrects" her out of context, performing a gag on Trixie's expense.
In the animated short Pinkie on the One, Pinkie Pie displays both the talent and energy of an expert drummer, which she expresses through her baking and artistry. She has so much energy that she cannot stop drumming with her eating utensils in the cafeteria. When Rarity suggests finding an outlet for Pinkie's energy, Rainbow Dash places her in front of a drum set. Pinkie performs a wild, fast drum solo and she transforms into her half-pony form.
Pinkie appears in the music room with the other Rainbooms. She is the one to suggest that Rarity pick up the more mobile keytar (calling it a "guitarkey") in favor of the bulkier grand piano.
Pinkie appears with her friends when Applejack bargains with Flim and Flam for her bass guitar, at one point gleefully playing with a rocking horse. She also glares daggers at Flim and Flam when they try to swindle Applejack, at which she growls and punches her fist into her other hand, suggesting that she might assault the brothers.
Pinkie sings the titular song with her friends and helps set up the auditorium for the Rainbooms' performance, briefly suggesting a Hawaiian luau theme.
Pinkie sings the song Perfect Day for Fun with her friends and enjoys the Canterlot High School carnival, mostly in Rarity's company.
Pinkie briefly appears in a flashback putting her hand on Sunset Shimmer's after her defeat.
Pinkie performs the song with the Rainbooms, singing a verse in the style of '80s techno-pop, and happily interacts with Sunset Shimmer.
Depiction in Friendship Games
Pinkie Pie's human counterpart appears again in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, competing in the games against Crystal Prep Academy as part of Canterlot High's Wondercolts team. She participates in the Academic Decathlon, winning the baking contest after creating a replica of the Mona Lisa inside a giant cake. She is paired up with Rarity during the speedskating portion of the Tri-Cross Relay, beating Sunny Flare and Lemon Zest.
Pinkie Pie is the first of her friends to realize that the Twilight Sparkle they meet during the Friendship Games is from the human world and not Equestria. She helps break the ice between Canterlot High School and Crystal Prep Academy by livening up the school's tense welcoming party. Her joy at seeing the two rival schools mingling causes her to pony up, but her magic is inadvertently drained by Twilight's magic-detecting device. She later regains her magic to empower Sunset Shimmer and return Twilight to normal after she is transformed into Midnight Sparkle.

In this short, Sunset Shimmer experiments to see how magic operates in the human world. Once Pinkie begins drumming, she ponies up and causes balloons of different shapes and colors to shoot out of her drumkit. The balloons cause Sunset to have a static electricity reaction.
In this short, Pinkie Pie constantly ruins Rainbow's attempts of not being seen when she's spying on Crystal Prep Academy's sports team.
Pinkie has a cameo in the beginning of the short skipping out the school entrance.
Pinkie Pie is hyperactive, random, a bit sensitive (and occasionally insensitive) and quite silly, but is also friendly and very kind but loves to pull pranks and tricks on her friends—just for fun. She enjoys singing and often suddenly breaks into song. She is a prankster, sometimes with Rainbow Dash's help, though she refuses to play any on Fluttershy due to her sensitive nature. She has been known to break the fourth wall and possesses the "Pinkie Sense", an ability to predict events in the immediate future through twitches of various body parts. When she becomes depressed, her mane changes from curly to straight and her pink coloration loses its brightness. Although she may be quirky, Pinkie is shown to be a bit clumsy as shown in Shake Your Tail!.

- "Hugs! Ooh, hugs are always good!"
- You're from an alternate world and you're a pony princess there, and the crown actually has a magical element embedded in it that helps power up other magical elements and without it, they don't work anymore, and you need them to help protect your magical world, and if you don't get the crown tonight, you'll be stuck in this world, and you won't be able to get back for like, a really, really long time![squee]"
