Development and design
Starlight was first introduced in Season 5 episode The Cutie Map, where she was the main antagonist. She later reformed in Season 5 finale The Cutie Remark.
In the half-hour Equestria Girls special Mirror Magic, when Sunset Shimmer returns to Equestria, Starlight appears and gives her a new magic journal and becomes very interested in the world on the other side of the Crystal Mirror. She convinces Sunset to take her along, and she transforms into a human upon arriving.
When Sunset and her friends become trapped in limbo through Juniper Montage's enchanted mirror, and Juniper starts terrorizing mall patrons, Starlight convinces her to stop by offering to be her friend, causing Juniper to put things back. The girls forgive Juniper, especially Starlight, Twilight, and Sunset who sympathize with her since they had corrupted magic experiences. In the end, Starlight helps Sunset to not worry so much about future dangers and to live in the moment, and through a message from Twilight in Sunset's journal, she is allowed to stay in the human world for a few more days.
