Depiction in films

My Little Pony Equestria Girls

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, Snips and Snails appear as students of Canterlot High School. In contrast to their pony counterparts' benevolence, they serve as minor antagonists and Sunset Shimmer’s bumbling lackeys throughout the film.

At Sunset Shimmer's behest, they record Twilight Sparkle's clumsy attempts at getting accustomed to the human world, and they upload their recordings to the school website, turning her into a laughing stock. They later destroy the decorations for the Fall Formal, and Sunset Shimmer uses doctored photos to frame Twilight for it.

During the Fall Formal, Snips and Snails abduct Spike, causing Twilight and her new friends to chase them into the schoolyard. When Sunset Shimmer puts on Twilight's crown and transforms into a demonic creature, she turns Snips and Snails into similar creatures as well. In this form, they menace Twilight's friends. After their defeat, they, along with Sunset Shimmer, are forced to repair the damage to the school they caused.

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

In Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Snips and Snails, along with the Crusaders and other Canterlot High students, are hypnotized by the Dazzlings into turning the CHS Musical Showcase into a Battle of the Bands. They also frequently argue with their fellow students, including Photo Finish, Flash Sentry, and Trixie.

In the Battle of the Bands, Snips and Snails participate as rappers under the respective stage names "MC Snips" and "DJ Snazzy Snails". During the Rainbooms' performance of Shake Your Tail, Snips and Snails take advantage of Fluttershy's stage fright by shining a spotlight on her. The two are defeated in the first round of the tournament by Bulk Biceps, shown during the Dazzlings' song Under Our Spell.

Perfect Day for Fun

In the Rainbow Rocks animated short Perfect Day for Fun, Snips and Snails appear at the Canterlot High carnival.
