Depiction in the series

The Crystal Ponies in despair S3E01

Rubinstein in chains in The Crystal Empire - Part 1.

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

He 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, he is one of many Crystal Ponies having become depressed as a result of King Sombra's curse. Hearing news of the Crystal Faire lifts his spirits and returns color to his coat and mane.

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

Rubinstein appears at several points in Games Ponies Play, and he appears during Morning in Ponyville in Magical Mystery Cure.

In Flight to the Finish, Rubinstein appears in the stadium crowd at the Crystal Empire during the Cutie Mark Crusaders' flag-carrying audition. He also appears at the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange in Trade Ya!, participates in the Games procession in Equestria Games, and is seen in the crowd welcoming the dignitaries in Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1.
