Development and design

Sapphire Shores is named after a G3 Earth pony with a pink coat, a blue and white mane, blue eyes, and a sapphired-seashell cutie mark. In the show, G4 Earth pony Sapphire Shores has no visible cutie mark due to a design oversight,[2] but in various merchandise and promotional material, G4 Earth pony Sapphire Shores has a sapphired-seashell-below-three-stars cutie mark,[3] G4 unicorn Sapphire Shores has a sapphired-seashell cutie mark, and G4 human Sapphire Shores has a sapphire cutie mark. G4 Earth pony Sapphire Shores shares her body type and coat color with "Hilly Hooffield" and her body type with "Zen Moment".

Depiction in the series

Sapphire Shores entranced S01E19

Sapphire Shores amazed at Rarity's design.

Sapphire Shores appears in the cold opening/introduction of A Dog and Pony Show, walking into Rarity's Carousel Boutique after hearing about her designs. Rarity is awe-struck when she sees Sapphire, and addresses her as "The Pony of Pop." Sapphire is enthralled by Rarity's newly-made diamond garment and wants to buy it for her tour, called Sapphire Shores' Zigfilly Follies.

Along with that particular garment, she requests five more costumes in gems of different sorts, which is a problem for Rarity, as she had used all of her gems to make the one garment.

Sapphire Shores makes a cameo appearance in the season two episode Sweet and Elite. During the song Becoming Popular (The Pony Everypony Should Know), when Rarity is surrounded in a checkerboard pattern of high-society ponies, Sapphire Shores is seen next to Hoity Toity. She also makes a cameo in the season four episode Rarity Takes Manehattan, in the Fashion Week crowd with Hoity Toity and Photo Finish.

Sapphire in For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils.

Sapphire appears again in For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils as one of Rarity's premiere clients. She initially appears in Sweetie Belle's dream, disapproving of Rarity's slipshod fashion designs and calling her "my ex-costume designer." She later appears alongside her backup dancers during a rehearsal in Canterlot. When Rarity shows Sapphire the costumes she made for her, she expresses her utmost approval for the dolphin-shaped stitching Sweetie Belle added, the shape of Sapphire's "lucky animal."

Two of Sapphire Shores' songs, as mentioned by Apple Bloom and Scootaloo, are called "Get Your Pony On" and "Serves Her Right."

Sapphire makes a cameo appearance in Equestria Games, sitting in the stadium crowd next to Hoity Toity. She is also briefly mentioned in Canterlot Boutique and The Mane Attraction. In School Raze - Part 1, Cozy Glow gives the School of Friendship students tickets to a Sapphire Shores concert.

Sapphire Shores from mystery packs.

The fifth wave of mystery pack toys and collector cards includes Sapphire Shores as a unicorn with a light green coat, a blue and white mane, blue eyes, and a seashell cutie mark. Like many other mystery pack characters, she here uses the same design as another pony, in this case unicorn Twilight Sparkle. The European earlier version of the card states that she "is quietly kind[,]" while the U.S. later version of the card lists her name with a trademark symbol and states that she "loves to collect pretty seashells."

An Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks doll of Sapphire Shores has been listed on Hasbro's website.[5] The packaging lists her name with a trademark symbol, shows her both as a pony—this time using her usual appearance—and as a human, and states, "It's all about standout style when you're a pop star like me! I always dress to impress and look fabulous on stage."

Sapphire knows that even the most talented pony has to look sensational when she goes out on stage, so she makes it a point to know all the up-and-coming designers—like Rarity! You can see Sapphire Shores in concert on her spectacular tour, Sapphire Shores Zigfilly Follies! Just don't be surprised if her fans faint. She does have that effect on a pony."

Sapphire isn't very fond of that particular musical." In the Absolute Discord expansion set, card #62 C of Sapphire Shores identifies her as a unicorn and lists the quote, "If I'm going to reclaim my place as the number one Pony of Pop, my next show has to be TWICE as big and TWICE as bold!"

The Elements of Harmony guidebook

SAPPHIRE SHORES is known for her music throughout Equestria as the Pony of Pop. The fashion-forward celebrity has a taste for Rarity's jeweled creations.

Volume II guidebook

SAPPHIRE SHORES is a big star, known across the Equestria as "the Pony of Pop." She had Rarity design quite a few outfits for her over many moons, including a whole gem-based wardrobe for her Sapphire Shores's Zigfilly Follies tour.


"Yes, I do have that effect on ponies."
— Sapphire Shores, referring to Rarity fainting

Sapphire speaks with a loud, theatrical voice and with an accent reminiscent of an African-American vernacular, and she frequently inserts musical intonations into her sentences. She appears to be a parody of the self-promoting star who is always "on." Despite her fame and over-the-top mannerisms, she seems to be quite friendly and approachable towards Rarity.


"I make it a point to know all of the up-and-coming designers, and Clothes Horse magazine simply raved about you."
A Dog and Pony Show
"Oh, please, call me Sapphire."
— A Dog and Pony Show
"One more time, from the top. Let's not embarrass me in front of my favorite designer this time."

— My Little Pony (mobile game)
"With these new mine cart wheels ready to go, we can explore the mine whenever we want! Ah, just... please don't tell Twilight I melted the last ones..."
— My Little Pony (mobile game)
"Phew... Mine carting is hard work for a sensational pony-pop icon like me! But as the mare's tale says, to be the best you've got to practice, practice, practice!"
