Twinkleshine is a female unicorn pony with an ivory coat, curly pink mane and tail, electric blue eyes, and a cutie mark of three sparkly blue stars. She shares her design with Lemon Hearts, and shares her tail style with Daisy and Golden Harvest. She has speaking roles in Friendship is Magic, part 1, A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1, A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, Amending Fences, and the IDW comics' story The Fall of Sunset Shimmer. Her design resembles that of G1 Moondancer, whose G4 counterpart Moon Dancer she mentions in her first speaking role.

Her first appearance is in Friendship is Magic, part 1, where she, Lemon Hearts, and Minuette meet Twilight Sparkle in Canterlot while carrying presents on their backs.

The game is the first time that she is simultaneously referred to by name and depicted with the same design and color scheme as in the show.
Twinkleshine appears as a filly in episode 1, "Types of Magic".
A unicorn pony named Twinkleshine was released as both a mystery pack figurine and a Playful Ponies toy in 2010. The toys share the character's cutie mark and eye color, and the mystery pack toy—using Twilight Sparkle's mold—shares the mane color except for the darker streak. The Playful Ponies toy, however, features rosy red hair and is based on Rarity's model. Both toys' coat colors are pink in contrast to the character's off-white coat, but Twinkleshine's identity is confirmed by Gameloft's mobile game, Enterplay's collectible card game, and Amending Fences. According to the back of the European mystery pack collector card, Twinkleshine "loves playing games." The front of the card depicts Twinkleshine standing in Canterlot. According to the European Playful Ponies package, Twinkleshine "loves the movies". The U.S. Playful Ponies package has a longer description and reads, "TWINKLESHINE dreams about being a famous movie star. Drama. Comedy. Action. She loves it all!" She shares her movie interest(s) with Juniper Montage. A second mini-figure toy and collector card pair of Twinkle Shine[sic] is included in the nineteenth wave of mystery packs.
Enterplay collectible card game card α #134 U, Critter Cuisine, attributes to Amethyst Star and Twinkleshine the respective quotes "But ferrets are carnivorous!" and "Shhh, maybe they don't know that yet!" In the game's set Rock N Rave, Twinkleshine is named on her card #3 F, which gives her the description "Nopony at Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns took better notes than Twilight Sparkle, but Twinkleshine was no slouch!" In the game's expansion set Absolute Discord, Twinkleshine is named on her card #51 C, which gives her the description "Studying with Twilight Sparkle before her big move to Ponyville helped Twinkleshine look at magic in all new ways!"
