Flash Sentry is a male Pegasus pony and royal guard who appears with his human counterpart in My Little Pony Equestria Girls and the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Through the Mirror screenplay novelization of it. He appears briefly in Three's A Crowd, Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1, the IDW comics' My Little Pony Micro-Series Issue #10, and the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks screenplay novelization of animated shorts, and his human counterpart also appears in Perfect Day for Fun and the film My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks. His human counterpart is Sunset Shimmer's ex-boyfriend at Canterlot High.
In late April 2013, an image of human Twilight Sparkle and human Flash Sentry as they appear in the film, with Flash carrying a guitar case, was posted anonymously online bearing the file name "ts_fs.png" and accompanied by the text "MMM HMM".My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. He did, however, make a non-speaking cameo in Three's A Crowd as well as a speaking cameo in Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1; Jim Miller explained on Twitter in May 2014 "He was never in the scripts. He was added later by request."
Depiction in the films
Equestria GirlsIn My Little Pony Equestria Girls, Flash Sentry first appears as a Pegasus royal guard in the Crystal Empire. He wears an additional back cloth and saddle plate normally worn by unicorn guards. Twilight Sparkle accidentally bumps into him when entering the throne room. He formally announces her arrival to the other princesses.
Flash Sentry's human counterpart first appears in Canterlot High when Twilight runs into him in the corridor. He helps her up and asks, "Whoa. You okay?" Later, Twilight accidentally spills a beverage on him at the coffee shop, and he jokes they need to stop bumping into each other. Rarity reveals to Twilight that he is Sunset Shimmer's ex-boyfriend (it is revealed in the sequel that Sunset only dated Flash for popularity purposes and never really liked him).
When Sunset Shimmer frames Twilight for ruining the Fall Formal decorations, Flash Sentry proves that the pictures are fake and Vice Principal Luna allows Twilight Sparkle to stay in the competition. Twilight is so thrilled that she hugs Flash Sentry. He asks Twilight out to the Formal, but mistakes her blubbering "no's" as her answer when she was really freaking out over the Formal being postponed. When the Formal reconvenes as originally scheduled, Twilight clears up the confusion with Flash Sentry and agrees to have one dance with him. The Formal is disrupted when Sunset Shimmer rises to power and summons an army of hypnotized students, including Flash Sentry. Twilight and her friends defeat Sunset Shimmer, turning everyone back to normal. Flash Sentry finally asks Twilight for their dance. On the dance floor, he imitates Twilight's odd dancing style, previously seen in Sweet and Elite.When Twilight returns to the Crystal Castle at the end of the film, she again bumps into Flash Sentry's pony counterpart. He helps her up and states that they need to stop meeting like that. When Twilight's friends say that she must have a crush on him, Twilight denies it, but blushes. Pinkie Pie accurately guesses that he must have reminded Twilight of a rock guitarist whom she met and liked in the human world.
Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks
Co-director Ishi Rudell has confirmed that Flash Sentry will return for the sequel, but he did not indicate in what capacity.
Flash hears the Rainbooms rehearsing in the band room and attempts to make implications about asking whether Twilight will return. Applejack says no and he leaves.
He is seen in the cafeteria during the Dazzlings' song. At one point, Sonata Dusk seductively strums the strings of Flash's guitar. He and his band are mesmerized by the song and are seen facing off with the eco-kids.
Depiction in the series
Flash reappears in Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1, where he has a speaking role, introducing the Duke and Duchess of Maretonia.
As both a human and a pony, Flash Sentry is shown to be kind and gentlemanly. He returns Twilight's feelings of affection towards him as a human. In both films, he also shows signs of social awkwardness and clumsiness, such as walking into a door while escorting Twilight to the Fall Formal dance and backing into a wall while exiting the band room.
His human self plays the guitar and is in a band, which performs at the Fall Formal and is specified in the first film's screenplay novelization Equestria Girls: Through the Mirror to be named Flash Drive.
