Depiction in Equestria Girls

Equestria Girls: Friendship Games

Spike the Dog in Friendship Games.

Spike the Dog appears along with his owner Twilight in the third film. As he was depicted in the post-credits scene of Rainbow Rocks, this Spike is depicted as being non-sentient and only able to communicate like an actual dog. Both Rarity and Fluttershy recognize him when he pops out of Twilight's backpack. Spike shows much concern for Twilight throughout the film, as he dislikes Canterlot High School and expresses worry about Twilight's trip there.

When Twilight's pendant absorbs Fluttershy's magic, causing dimensional rifts to Equestria to open, Spike follows a jackalope through one of the rifts, and he is accidentally exposed to some of Fluttershy's magic. This gives him the ability to speak and communicate with humans, though he assures Twilight he hasn't been affected in any adverse ways.

During the climax of the film, when Twilight transforms into the evil Midnight Sparkle, Spike calls out to her and gives a pleading look, momentarily bringing her back to her senses so Sunset Shimmer can return her to normal.

Spike is present when Twilight's Equestrian counterpart appears from the portal, happily wagging his tail at the sight of a second Twilight Sparkle.

In Street Magic with Trixie!, Spike is Trixie's assistant in her magic act, and shows great nervousness over being part of the "sawed in half" trick.

"All I know is I chased that pointy rabbit through the glowy thing and then I was somewhere else. Next thing I knew, I was back in that nice girl's arms and I could talk! I don't really understand why I couldn't before. I mean, it's so easy."
