Depiction in Equestria Girls
In My Little Pony Equestria Girls, the Cutie Mark Crusaders appear as students of Canterlot High School. Among the three, only Scootaloo has no speaking roles. They first appear passing by Twilight Sparkle and Spike in the school hallway; Scootaloo in particular nearly crashes into Twilight with her scooter.Later, in the school library, the Crusaders dance to a music video they uploaded to the internet, but Miss Cheerilee scolds them for using a school computer for non-research purposes and confiscates their speaker. Apple Bloom suggests that it's for the best and points out the video's comments, one of which calls the video the "funniest thing I've ever seen". The Crusaders take this to mean they should try comedy and run off.
The Crusaders also appear in the school cafeteria during the Equestria Girls song. Near the end of the film, they attend the Fall Formal dance and fall under Sunset Shimmer's hypnotic trance. When the dance continues after Sunset's defeat, Rainbow Dash picks up Scootaloo and flies her around the gymnasium.
In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, the Crusaders participate as a competing musical act in the CHS Musical Showcase. At the beginning of the film, when Sunset Shimmer offers to help them with their banner, they nervously decline. In the cafeteria, the Crusaders fall under the Dazzlings' spell and face off heatedly against their fellow students.In the Battle of the Bands, the Crusaders wear costumes similar to the ones their pony counterparts wear in The Show Stoppers. They triumph over Derpy's band, but they are eliminated by Flash Sentry's band. At the end of the film, they walk with Sunset Shimmer in the hallway during Shine Like Rainbows.
Apple Bloom is the only Crusader with a speaking role in the film. Claire Corlett is credited in the film's end credits as Sweetie Belle, but she does not have any lines of dialogue.
In the Rainbow Rocks animated short Music to My Ears, the Cutie Mark Crusaders pass by DJ Pon-3 on the street while she listens to dubstep on her headphones.
Apple Bloom briefly appears among a crowd of Canterlot High students during the Rainbooms' performance of Shake Your Tail. While sitting on Big McIntosh's shoulders, she hits a beach ball into the air.
In the musical short Perfect Day for Fun, the Crusaders dance during the Rainbooms' concert and gather together for a group photo with Vice Principal Luna, Big McIntosh, Miss Cheerilee, Spike, Trixie Lulamoon, Granny Smith, DJ Pon-3, and Flash Sentry.
The Crusaders briefly appear in the animated short alongside other Canterlot High School students, rejecting the reformed Sunset Shimmer during the second verse.CHS Rally Song, and at Crystal Prep Academy's welcoming party. The Crusaders cheer on the Canterlot Wondercolts during the Friendship Games, and they appear in a photograph during the end credits.
In the half-hour special Mirror Magic, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo briefly appear watching Starlight Glimmer walk on all fours outside Canterlot High School.
The Crusaders get their first starring role in the short The Canterlot Movie Club, in which they help Pinkie attempt to locate her missing Gummy doll. Notably, Scootaloo makes her first speaking appearance.
Throughout the shorts involving the school play arc, the Crusaders appear playing minor roles as coal miners. In Happily Ever After Party, they attempt to retrieve the school projector for the cast party from Mr. Cranky Doodle with the help of either Applejack, Rarity, or Rainbow Dash, depending on the viewer's choice.
Depiction in comics
In the My Little Pony Annual 2013, Sweetie Belle appears on pages 42-43, and Apple Bloom appears on page 45.
In the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special, the Crusaders create the online profile "Anon-a-Miss", posting other students' embarrassing secrets and framing Sunset Shimmer out of jealousy. They eventually come clean and take down the profile, and Sunset and her friends forgive them, but they receive six months of detention from Principal Celestia.
In the My Little Pony Equestria Girls screenplay adaptation Through the Mirror, the Cutie Mark Crusaders have additional dialogue when Twilight Sparkle's friends are distributing pony ears and tails to students. In the second film's adaptation Rainbow Rocks: The Mane Event, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle have additional dialogue after Principal Celestia announces the Rainbooms are moving on to the finals.
The Cutie Mark Crusaders are featured as background characters in Hasbro's Equestria Girls online game V.I.F.
They may only be underclassmen, but Sweetie Bell[sic], Scootaloo and Apple Bloom sure know how to have a good time. Whether they're nearly running down Twilight & Spike in the halls, losing battle of the bands, or cheering on the Canterlot Wondercolts, they stick together through thick and thin.
MerchandiseEquestria Girls dolls of Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo were released together in a 3-pack as part of the Target-exclusive Wild Rainbow line and are listed on Hasbro's website. The dolls' packaging names the three "The Cutie Mark Crusaders" with a trademark symbol.
