My Little Pony Equestria Girls

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, the Cutie Mark Crusaders appear as students of Canterlot High School. Among the three, only Scootaloo has no speaking roles. They first appear passing by Twilight Sparkle and Spike in the school hallway; Scootaloo in particular nearly crashes into Twilight with her scooter.

Later, in the school library, the Crusaders dance to a music video they uploaded to the internet, but Miss Cheerilee scolds them for using a school computer for non-research purposes and confiscates their speaker. Apple Bloom suggests that it's for the best and points out the video's comments, one of which calls the video the "funniest thing I've ever seen". The Crusaders take this to mean they should try comedy and run off.

The Crusaders also appear in the school cafeteria during the Equestria Girls song. Near the end of the film, they attend the Fall Formal dance and fall under Sunset Shimmer's hypnotic trance. When the dance continues after Sunset's defeat, Rainbow Dash picks up Scootaloo and flies her around the gymnasium.

Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, the Crusaders participate as a competing musical act in the CHS Musical Showcase. At the beginning of the film, when Sunset Shimmer offers to help them with their banner, they nervously decline. In the cafeteria, the Crusaders fall under the Dazzlings' spell and face off heatedly against their fellow students.

In the Battle of the Bands, the Crusaders wear costumes similar to the ones their pony counterparts wear in The Show Stoppers. They triumph over Derpy's band, but they are eliminated by Flash Sentry's band. At the end of the film, they walk with Sunset Shimmer in the hallway during Shine Like Rainbows.

Apple Bloom is the only Crusader with a speaking role in the film. Claire Corlett is credited in the film's end credits as Sweetie Belle, but she does not have any lines of dialogue.

In Music to My Ears, the Cutie Mark Crusaders pass by DJ Pon-3 on the street while she listens to dubstep on her headphones. In Shake Your Tail, Apple Bloom briefly appears among a crowd of Canterlot High students during the Rainbooms' performance. While sitting on Big McIntosh's shoulders, she hits a beach ball into the air. In Perfect Day for Fun, the Crusaders dance during the Rainbooms' concert and gather together for a group photo with Vice Principal Luna, Big McIntosh, Miss Cheerilee, Spike, Trixie Lulamoon, Granny Smith, DJ Pon-3, and Flash Sentry. In the encore short My Past is Not Today, the Crusaders briefly appear alongside other Canterlot High School students, rejecting the reformed Sunset Shimmer during the second verse.

Equestria Girls: Friendship Games

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, the Cutie Mark Crusaders make non-speaking appearances. At the beginning of the film, Rainbow Dash gives them a private performance on her guitar. They later appear in the library, in the gym during the CHS Rally Song, and at Crystal Prep Academy's welcoming party. The Crusaders cheer on the Canterlot Wondercolts during the Friendship Games, and they appear in a photograph during the end credits.

Equestria Girls: Mirror Magic

In the half-hour special Mirror Magic, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo briefly appear watching Starlight Glimmer walk on all fours outside Canterlot High School.

Equestria Girls: Summertime Shorts

In A Photo Booth Story, the Crusaders have their photo taken by Photo Finish, but it does not meet her high expectations. In Raise This Roof, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo compete in a dance-off with Applejack and Rainbow Dash respectively at the Fall Formal. In The Art of Friendship, Apple Bloom appears drawing in art class.

The Crusaders get their first starring role in The Canterlot Movie Club, in which they help Pinkie attempt to locate her missing Gummy doll. Notably, Scootaloo makes her first speaking appearance. In Good Vibes, the Crusaders carry a canoe out of Rainbow Dash's sporting goods store at the Canterlot Mall.

Better Together/Choose Your Own Ending

In School of Rock, the Crusaders attend Maud Pie's lecture at the Canterlot History Museum. They also briefly appear in the cafeteria in Queen of Clubs, and Sweetie Belle runs past Sunset Shimmer as the latter reads the former's thoughts in Overpowered. In Best in Show: The Pre-Show, Apple Bloom has Winona enter the Canterlot High pet show, as a surprise for Applejack. Sweetie Belle then briefly appears walking past Fluttershy when the pre-show festivities finish. In Best in Show: The Victory Lap, Apple Bloom and Winona are seen at the end of the show. In FOMO, the Crusaders appear talking to each other by the school parking lot. In Festival Looks, Sweetie Belle appears in a computer video call profile picture.

In the Twilight Sparkle ending of the Choose Your Own Ending short Best Trends Forever, the Crusaders briefly appear wearing glasses. Throughout the shorts involving the school play, they appear playing minor roles as coal miners. In Happily Ever After Party, they attempt to retrieve the school projector for the cast party from Mr. Cranky Doodle with the help of either Applejack, Rarity, or Rainbow Dash, depending on the viewer's choice.

Equestria Girls: Forgotten Friendship

In Forgotten Friendship, the Crusaders appear at the very beginning before We've Come So Far, in Wallflower Blush's memories of the Battle of the Bands, and at the end with their school yearbooks.

Equestria Girls: Rollercoaster of Friendship

Apple Bloom appears briefly making homemade applesauce with Applejack and Big Mac in Granny Smith's garage. Sweetie Belle and Scootaloo appear as patrons of Equestria Land. Later, Apple Bloom joins them in the crowd for the light parade.

Equestria Girls: Holidays Unwrapped

In "Saving Pinkie's Pie", Apple Bloom takes part in a big snowball fight. In "The Cider Louse Fools", Twilight Sparkle helps Apple Bloom and her family outwit Flim and Flam when they try to swindle them out of their holiday cider, and Twilight makes cardboard cutouts of Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle to fool the brothers. In one flashback, Apple Bloom adopts a pet worm as part of one of the brothers' schemes and names it Colonel Wigglesworth. In "Dashing Through the Mall", the Crusaders make a background cameo at the Canterlot Mall. In "O Come, All Ye Squashful", Apple Bloom appears in past Apple family photos on Applejack's phone.

Depiction in comics

In the My Little Pony Annual 2013, Sweetie Belle appears on pages 42-43, and Apple Bloom appears on page 45.

In the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special, the Crusaders create the online profile "Anon-a-Miss", posting other students' embarrassing secrets and framing Sunset Shimmer out of jealousy. They eventually come clean and take down the profile, and Sunset and her friends forgive them, but they receive six months of detention from Principal Celestia.

They may only be underclassmen, but Sweetie Bell[sic], Scootaloo and Apple Bloom sure know how to have a good time. Whether they're nearly running down Twilight & Spike in the halls, losing battle of the bands, or cheering on the Canterlot Wondercolts, they stick together through thick and thin.[2]
