Angel Wings is a female Pegasus pony who appears in the season six episode Top Bolt as one of the Wonderbolt Academy trainees.

Development and design
Angel Wings is an original character created by Alexis "Lexi" Heule. Heule has a congenital heart disease and connective tissue disorder, and she was able to play her own character in the show through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, making her the second individual to do so after Sylvain-Nicholas LeVasseur-Portelance, who voiced Stellar Eclipse.
Angel Wings is the ninth original character to appear in the show, preceded by Holly Dash, Wild Fire, Midnight Strike, Peachy Pitt, Stellar Eclipse, "Whoa Nelly", and Bittersweet and Leadwing. She was designed through GeneralZoi's Pony Creator and referred to by Heule as "Angel Heart" in November 2015. In her initial design, she had a gray muzzle and white bow.According to Heule, Angel Wings may reappear "in the background of other episodes in the future"; Heule "prerecorded some extra noises and stuff to be in the background later".
Depiction in the seriesAngel Wings appears in the season six episode Top Bolt as one of seven new applicants to the Wonderbolt Academy when Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are summoned by the Cutie Map. When Academy trials week starts, Angel Wings expresses nervousness when drill instructor Spitfire suggests the possibility of having one's wings fall off during training. Before doing laps around the Academy, she tells Twilight and Rainbow that they are her favorite ponies in all of Equestria.
Angel Wings appears later during the classroom portion of Academy training, feebly busting clouds in the sky, and having a turn on the Dizzitron. She also watches Sky Stinger and Vapor Trail's final evaluation tests with Twilight, Rainbow, Spitfire, and the other trainees. After Sky and Vapor are accepted into the Academy, Angel Wings is so impressed by them that she says they are her new favorite ponies in all of Equestria—much to Rainbow Dash's annoyance.
