NameHis name is a play on the male name Søren combined with soaring. Amy Keating Rogers, the writer of the first episode in which Soarin was named, was given the chance to name this character during the writing process; she named him Soarin' after her son, Soren.
Depiction in the seriesSoarin makes his debut in a cameo appearance in The Ticket Master. Rainbow Dash imagines herself impressing The Wonderbolts, followed by shaking hooves with Soarin.
He next appears in Sonic Rainboom, attending and judging for The Best Young Flyer Competition. He is one of The Wonderbolts that attempts to save Rarity when she plummets after her wings burn, and instead gets knocked unconscious by her panicked kicking, as do the other two Wonderbolts.

He participates in The Wonderbolts derby in Sweet and Elite, coming in third.
Soarin also appears in a photo in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, together with Rainbow Dash while dressed in an officer's formal uniform. This is his first depiction in the series without the iconic Wonderbolt flight suit; the uniform he wears in the photo exposes his rank and cutie mark, which matches the symbol on all the male Wonderbolts uniforms.
Depiction in the comics
A partially translucent mini-figure toy of Soarin was leaked in early August 2012, and its corresponding collector card was leaked in late November 2012; the toy and card were released as part of the seventh wave of mystery packs in January 2013. The card and Spitfire's card from the same wave misidentify the two ponies as each other, though the wave's packaging identifies them correctly. According to Spitfire's card, "SOARIN is a speedy member of the WONDERBOLTS flying team!" His name, with no apostrophe, is listed as a trademark both on her card and on the packaging of the wave.
