White Lightning is a female background Pegasus pony with a white coat, Carolina blue mane and tail, celestial blue eyes and a cutie mark of a dark cloud with a lightning bolt. She shares her design with Sprinkle Medley and bears a resemblance to the toy Periwinkle. In Pinkie Pride, she appears as an Earth pony. She is not named in the show, but she is named in merchandise.

Depiction in the series

White 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 Nurse Redheart's triage station.

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.

White Lightning appears quite frequently in Hurricane Fluttershy. She is one of the many Pegasi helping to create the tornado required to lift the water into Cloudsdale.

White Lightning appears in Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 1, Princess Twilight Sparkle - Part 2, Rainbow Falls, Pinkie Pride, Simple Ways, Filli Vanilli, It Ain't Easy Being Breezies, For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils, Leap of Faith, Trade Ya!, Equestria Games, Twilight's Kingdom - Part 1, and Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2.
