Depiction in the series

Crystal Ponies in the stands S3E02

Elbow Grease watching the joust in The Crystal Empire - Part 2.

Elbow Grease is one of the nine most frequently appearing Crystal Ponies, along with "Amber Waves", Bright Smile, "Crystal Arrow", "Fleur de Verre", "Ivory", Sapphire Joy, "Night Knight", and "Rubinstein".

She first appears in The Crystal Empire - Part 1 during Princess Celestia's flashback of the Crystal Empire, shown to be in the forced servitude of King Sombra. Later in the episode, she is one of many Crystal Ponies having become depressed as a result of King Sombra's curse. She has a brief speaking role opposite "Night Knight". Hearing news of the Crystal Faire lifts her spirits and returns color to her coat and mane.

In The Crystal Empire - Part 2, Elbow Grease has other forms of fun at the Crystal Faire, like enjoying the petting zoo and watching Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy's jousting match. She helps power the Crystal Heart at the end of the episode.

Elbow Grease appears at the Crystal Empire train station in Just for Sidekicks, takes part in the cleaning of the Empire and has a mud bath at the spa in Games Ponies Play, and attends Twilight Sparkle's princess coronation in Magical Mystery Cure.

In Flight to the Finish, Elbow Grease appears in the stadium crowd at the Crystal Empire during the Cutie Mark Crusaders' flag-carrying audition. She also appears at the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange in Trade Ya!, has a speaking role in which she asks Spike for his autograph in Equestria Games, and is seen in the crowd welcoming the dignitaries in Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1.
