Twilight Sparkle is an upcoming character who will appear in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games. She is a student from Crystal Prep Academy, the rival school of Canterlot High. Unknown to her, her pony counterpart had enter to the human world twice to help solve problems at Canterlot High in My Little Pony Equestria Girls and My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.
Depictions in Equestria Girls
Twilight is first mentioned in My Little Pony Equestria Girls by Pinkie Pie when her pony counterpart first comes into the human world when Sunset Shimmer stole her crown from Equestria. Pinkie asked her Equestrian counterpart if she had a twin who lived in the city, since the human world all have Equestrian counterparts in Equestria.
Depictions in Rainbow Rocks
Twilight first appears after the end credits of My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, along with her pet dog, Spike, at her school Crystal Prep Academy. Twilight is shown piecing together several strange events that occurred in Canterlot High after her pony counterpart returned home to Equestria. She talks to Spike about what she had researched about the school before the film's end. This foreshadows that there's another Equestria Girls movie at the following year, in this case My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games.
Depictions in Friendship Games
Twilight Sparkle will appear in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, possibly as an anti-hero. She attends Crystal Prep Academy where she wants to make some friends while her school completes against Canterlot High in the Friendship Games, but almost everyone are snobby and mean due to Crystal Prep having won every Friendship Games against Canterlot High. During the Friendship Games, she'll be doing the Archery event along with Sour Sweet against Fluttershy and Applejack. She is shown to also going to look for Equestrian magic during the Games, which the Rainbooms are trying to hide from her. Not much of the plot is shown yet but at the end of the movie, she will transform into Midnight Sparkle by some dark magic she accidentally collected. It also possible that she'll have a crush on Flash Sentry, like her pony counterpart.
As shown in the trailer and like her Equestrian counterpart, Twilight is a typical socially-awkward and clumsy teenage girl who tries to fit in, which is due to her school winning every Friendship Games against Canterlot High. However, she has yet to learn about the Magic of Friendship at Crystal Prep making her shy at school. She is very smart as shown in Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games, where she's doing science in her office to research several events that happened in Canterlot High after her pony counterpart left to Equestria and building an amulet to collect the magic during the Games.
Difference between her and her Equestrian counterpart
Before Twilight Sparkle plays an important role in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, her pony counterpart had transformed into a teenage girl when she entered the human world twice during the first and second movie to help solve problems at Canterlot High. There are several difference between the two Twilights:
- Pony Twilight Sparkle attended Canterlot High for only five days, first three days to get her crown back from Sunset Shimmer and later two days to help the Rainbooms defeat the Dazzlings after six moons, while the real human Twilight attends Crystal Prep Academy as a full time student.
- Human Twilight wears her hair in a bun, while pony Twilight wears her hair straight (due to matching the hairstyle and other things of her respective appearance).
- Pony Twilight never wears black glasses, unlike human Twilight (due to matching her respective overall appearance).
- Unlike her pony counterpart due to being a princess and gaining respect from everypony/everybody in both the human world and Equestria, the human Twilight is bullied by almost everybody at school.
- Human Twilight doesn't have any friends due to being shy at Crystal Prep (if her brother Shining Armor and sister-in-law Cadance count as friends), while pony Twilight has many friends because she is a princess.
But both human and pony counterparts of Twilight Sparkle are very smart at science and believe in magic. And it begs a possible question that at the end of Friendship Games, human Twilight decides to be transfer to Canterlot High to make some friends and befriend the Rainbooms to create harmony for the two worlds.
