Applejack in Equestria Girls.

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, Applejack first appears delivering fizzy apple cider to Pinkie Pie, the head of the Fall Formal planning committee. She tries to dissuade Twilight Sparkle from running for Princess, telling her that Sunset Shimmer viciously seeks to humiliate any competition.

It is later revealed that Applejack and the rest of Twilight's new friends had been driven apart by Sunset Shimmer's machinations. Rainbow Dash had promised to have the school's softball team attend a bake sale that Applejack was running, only for Rainbow to be messaged that the sale had been moved to a different day. Once Twilight convinces Applejack to talk to Rainbow about the misunderstanding, all five friends reconcile and help Twilight get voted for Princess of the Fall Formal.

When Sunset puts on Twilight's crown and transforms into a "raging she-demon", Applejack briefly channels the element of honesty and gains pony-like attributes.

Applejack reappears in the sequel My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks and its tie-in animated shorts, where she plays bass in her friends' band, the Rainbooms. She first appears helping her friends make a sign for the CHS Musical Showcase. At band rehearsal, she helps comfort Sunset Shimmer of all the bad memories of what happened at the Fall Formal. After they perform one song, she wonders why she and her friends gain pony ears and a longer ponytail while they perform even though Princess Twilight took her crown with her when she went back to Equestria.

Throughout the film, Applejack frequently argues with Rarity about their stage costumes. While trapped under the Battle of the Bands stage, Applejack and her friends reconcile after hearing Sunset Shimmer's speech, and Applejack finally decides to let Rarity use her band outfits for their performances.

In Music to My Ears, Applejack appears briefly waving to DJ Pon-3 at the Sweet Shoppe with her friends. In Guitar Centered, she accompanies her friends at the music store and suggests a musical competition between Rainbow Dash and Trixie for an expensive guitar. In Pinkie on the One, she appears as equally frustrated as Rainbow Dash and Rarity with Pinkie Pie's escalating drumming and notes Rarity's lateness to the Rainbooms' rehearsal is to make a "grand entrance" in Player Piano.

Applejack is the lead role in A Case for the Bass, wherein her bass is accidentally sold by Granny Smith to pawn shop owners Flim and Flam. She plays a skillful bass solo and transform into her half-pony form when they question her playing ability, and later works off the bass as a costumed mascot in front of their store. She performs the titular songs with the Rainbooms in Shake Your Tail and Perfect Day for Fun, respectively briefly suggesting a rodeo theme for a school dance and enjoying the Canterlot High School carnival with her friends, competing at a high striker game at one point.

In the encore short My Past is Not Today, Applejack briefly appears in a flashback putting her hand on Sunset Shimmer's after her defeat. In Friendship Through the Ages, she performs the titular song with the Rainbooms and line dances with Sunset Shimmer in one shot.

She participates in the Academic Decathlon, passing the baking contest but failing the spelling bee after misspelling "onomatopoeia".

She is paired up with Fluttershy during the archery portion of the Tri-Cross Relay. When the human world's version of Twilight Sparkle is heckled by her own team for failing to hit a target, Applejack gives her advice that allows her to hit a bull's-eye. This act of honesty causes her to pony up, but her magic is drained by Twilight's amulet. She later regains her magic to empower Sunset Shimmer and return Twilight to normal after she is transformed into Midnight Sparkle.

Other Descriptions

Equestria Girls description

Applejack believes that honesty is the best policy. Well, that, and that the way to a girl's heart is through some good old-fashioned down-home cooking. So when Twilight Sparkle exposes Sunset Shimmer's devious and dishonest ways, Applejack is all too happy to team up with her friends and help Twilight win the Fall Formal princess crown. Because to be honest, which is the only way Applejack knows how to be, there's nothing she'd rather see than the power of evil defeated by the power of friendship.[1]

My Little Pony mobile game

Applejack is available as a dancer for the Equestria Girls dance minigame in Gameloft's My Little Pony mobile game.


Several dolls of Applejack have been released for My Little Pony Equestria Girls: an "Original Series Single" doll with a hairbrush and cowboy hat accessories, a cheerleader doll that is packaged in the Canterlot High Pep Rally Set, an "Equestria Girls Collection" doll that more closely resembles her appearance in the films, and a basic "Budget Series" doll with molded hair.

Five dolls of Applejack have also been released for My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks: a doll with backstage pass; a doll that comes with a guitar and stamps; a "Neon" doll with backstage pass and headset; a deluxe dress-up doll with accessories; and a "Rockin' Hairstyle" doll with hair extensions.

Another two Applejack dolls have been released for My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games: a "Sporty Style" doll with a bow and arrow, and a "School Spirit" doll.

Miniature, articulated dolls of Applejack were released in Winter 2015 as part of the "Equestria Girls Minis" lineup.[5]

A Fall Formal variant of Applejack was released in late 2016 as part of the Equestria Girls Minis lineup.

Applejack appears as a pony in Equestria on the fan-designed WeLoveFine art print "Girls in Equestria".


Applejack is depicted as very reliable, hardworking, and honest. As her friends tend to be quirky, Applejack typically acts as the "straight man" in her circle of friends—much like her Equestrian counterpart tends to be for her friends. She is also considerably strong, able to carry a folding table by herself that normally takes two male athletes to move.

Applejack is also the most level-headed among her friends, able to calmly and logically assess situations that she and the others find themselves in. In Rainbow Rocks, she is the first to question the Rainbooms' ability to "pony up", and in Friendship Games, she is the first one to wonder how Rainbow Dash ponies up without playing her guitar.

Applejack values honesty above all else. She eagerly helps Twilight beat Sunset Shimmer for Fall Formal Princess, and because she places a lot of trust in others, she becomes particularly hurt when that trust is betrayed. It is through Applejack's unyielding honesty that leads her to reaching out to the human Twilight Sparkle in Friendship Games.
