Depiction in the seriesWhite Lightning appears as a background pony throughout Ponyville and Cloudsdale. She appears in both the original and remastered title sequences; her first appearance in the show is in Friendship is Magic, part 1 at the surprise party that Pinkie Pie throws for Twilight Sparkle in the library. She later appears hovering in the town hall as she along with many other ponies awaits the start of the Summer Sun Celebration.
She visibly drools at the sight of Applejack's muffins in Applebuck Season; a white Pegasus pony with her design and a differently-colored mane is one of the ponies at Ponyville Urgent Care.
In Griffon the Brush Off, she stands behind a vegetable stand in the marketplace. This is the stand through which Gilda pokes her tail and fools Granny Smith into thinking it is a rattler, scaring her away. Gilda then disrespects the stand's produce by saying "This stuff ain't fresh, dude" right in front of White Lightning, who looks at her with a surprised expression on her face.
In Wonderbolts Academy, White Lightning briefly appears as one of the academy cadets doing push-ups. She also appears in Rainbow Dash's flashback at the beginning of Games Ponies Play and several times in Magical Mystery Cure.In season four, White Lightning appears in Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 1, watching the Summer Sun Celebration in Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2, in Rainbow Falls, at Rainbow's birth-iversary party in Pinkie Pride, in Simple Ways, in Filli Vanilli, in It Ain't Easy Being Breezies, in the Cutie Mark Crusaders' theater audience in For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils, at the Ponyville Swim Meet in Leap of Faith, at the Traders Exchange in Trade Ya!, in the stadium crowd in Equestria Games, in an amphitheater at the end of Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1, and in front of Twilight's new castle at the end of Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2.
