Twilight Velvet and Night Light, also called Mrs. Sparkle and Mr. Sparkle respectively, are the married unicorn parents of Twilight Sparkle and Shining Armor and paternal grandparents of Flurry Heart who live in Canterlot. They first appear in The Cutie Mark Chronicles, and have made very few appearances in the show since. They are named varyingly in credits, merchandise, and other depictions.

Development and design

Both ponies feature unique mane designs. Twilight Velvet's mane and tail bear a slight resemblance to those of her daughter Twilight Sparkle, and she also resembles the G1 unicorn mare Twilight. Night Light bears a resemblance to the G1 Earth pony mare Nachtlicht (German for "nightlight").

Depiction in the series

In all of their series appearances, Twilight Velvet and Night Light appear together. Their first appearance is in Twilight Sparkle's flashback in The Cutie Mark Chronicles. They show a filly Twilight her enrollment letter into Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, and they are also present at her entrance exam into the school. When Twilight loses control of her magic as a result of the sonic rainboom, they are briefly transformed into an agave and a cactus respectively. When Princess Celestia calms Twilight down, they return to normal. They are then seen urging their daughter to accept Celestia's offer to be her personal student.

Twilight Velvet and Night Light appear again in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2, attending the wedding between their son Shining Armor and Princess Cadance. Velvet is seen crying tears of pride over her son getting wed. The two make a similar appearance in Magical Mystery Cure at Twilight's princess coronation. They both appear in the crowd in the stadium in Equestria Games. They appear in The Crystalling - Part 2 visiting Flurry Heart. In this appearance, the two have spoken dialogue, and Velvet's aura color is different.

Other depictions

A promotional image posted by the official European Spanish My Little Pony Facebook page on May 3, 2015 uses fanart of Twilight Velvet.[1][2]

IDW comics

Twilight Velvet and Night Light appear in the fourth story arc of the IDW comics' My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series, with spoken lines. They leave a filly Twilight in the care of her foal-sitter Cadance while they attend Shining Armor's flugelhorn recital. Twilight Velvet is shown to have a tendency of smothering her son with affection, calling him "Shiny". Shining Armor's flashback in Issue #11 implies Twilight Velvet to have what could be "a Daring Do Award for Authors... or an award for a book about the character rather than the DD series..."[3][4]

On My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #3 cover A, a list for a Twilight Sparkle birthday party includes a pair of names at least starting similarly to Twilight Velvet & Night Light. On page 3 of the My Little Pony Holiday Special comic, Night Light appears reading one of Twilight's books.

Twilight Velvet and Night Light are in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #40.​[​specify​]​ Night Light is also mentioned on My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #26 page 1.

Merchandise

Mystery pack 6 Twilight Velvet

Special edition Twilight Velvet.

A glittery Twilight Velvet mini-figure toy and collector card were released in May 2012 as part of the fourth wave of mystery packs. According to the European collector card, Twilight Velvet "loves writing stories!" The U.S. collector card has a longer description and reads, "TWILIGHT VELVET loves writing stories about adventures!"

A special edition Twilight Velvet with a 3D cutie mark was released in November 2012 as part of the sixth wave of mystery packs. The U.S. collector card uses the same description as the previous U.S. collector card.[5]

Card #66 C of the Enterplay collectible card game's expansion set Canterlot Nights gives Twilight Velvet the description "Her son was Captain of the Guard in Canterlot, and is now Prince of the Crystal Empire. Her daughter was personal protégé of Princess Celestia, and is now a princess in her own right. Twilight Velvet deserves to be proud!" Card #51 C of the game's expansion set The Crystal Games names Night Light and lists the quote "I helped Twilight study for her entrance exam into Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns. I love her to bits, but I hope I never, EVER, see another flash card as long as I live."

Twilight Velvet and Night Light are shown on Acidfree's first art print.[6]
