Depiction in the series
Rumble first appears in Hurricane Fluttershy alongside his brother Thunderlane when Twilight Sparkle tests her anemometer and Spike gives a simplified explanation of what an anemometer is. When Rainbow Dash orders Thunderlane to be the first test flyer and he measures a wingpower of 9.3, Rumble gives him a look of impressed approval. Rumble appears once more before the first tornado formation attempt, informing Rainbow Dash that Thunderlane is sick with the feather flu.
In Flight to the Finish, Rumble appears beside Featherweight in the stage area where the Cutie Mark Crusaders practice their Equestria Games flag carrying routine for Rainbow Dash. In Twilight Time, Rumble appears mostly off-screen during the grand opening of Pipsqueak's lemonade stand. In Inspiration Manifestation, Rumble appears with his brother Thunderlane at the Foal and Filly Fair.
Rumble appears alongside Thunderlane in A Hearth's Warming Tail.
Rumble has his first major character role in Marks and Recreation, in which he doesn't want to get a cutie mark because he believes it limits one's possibilities to just one thing, and convinces the other attendees at the Cutie Mark Crusaders' cutie mark day camp to think the same way. With help from the Cutie Mark Crusaders and his older brother Thunderlane, Rumble learns that cutie marks do no such thing and that, despite his eventual cutie mark, he can still pursue multiple interests, including his dream of becoming a Wonderbolt.
In The Ending of the End - Part 2, Rumble briefly appears taking shelter with other Pegasi in Cloudsdale as the city closes itself off from the other pony races. In The Last Problem, Rumble helps with the food for Twilight Sparkle's coronation ceremony. He also briefly appears in Rainbow Dash's group shot during The Magic of Friendship Grows.
In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #81, Rumble visits Wonderbolts headquarters with Thunderlane, Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo, excited to take part in an actual Wonderbolts performance. During practice, Rumble is knocked out of the sky by an overzealous Wonderbolt and sprains his wing, leaving him unable to participate. In an effort to cheer Rumble up, Scootaloo takes him exploring. At the Wonderbolts museum, they find the statue of an earth pony named Wind Sock, and learn how he became the only non-Pegasus member of the team by inventing a glider. Inspired by the story, Rumble uses a replica of the glider to fly in the performance.
Rumble is a playable character in Gameloft's mobile game. His in-game description states, "Rumble is the calm before the storm! If he keeps working hard, one day he's sure to cause a whirlwind in Canterlot with his Pegasus prowess!" Chef Rumble was added in update 5.9, and serves as boss of the "Fine Dining: First Course" event. In the story, Rumble takes part in the Equestria Super Chef Competition, but becomes discouraged after losing to her, revealing that he gave up on his Wonderbolt aspirations. Pinkie encourages him, and sets out to help other ponies see his cooking ability. Chef Rumble's bio states "Maybe one day he can be a Wonderbolt AND a professional culinary artist! Who to say otherwise?"
