Twilight was originally quite introverted and a bit rude, but eventually came out of her shell more. She held a bit of snark and was quite well-read. Twilight tried to be rational and find logic in situations. She held her friends in high regard and rose to power after proving her understanding of friendship.
Twilight Sparkle has a lavender coat, and her mane and tail are dark indigo with streaks of purple and pink. Her mane and tail end in straight edges, reflecting her straight-edge personality. Her eyes are purple and almond-shaped. Her cutie mark was a pink six-pointed starburst with five smaller white stars.
Earlier G5 ideas featured redesigns of the Generation 4 characters from the cartoon. The concept art leaked in early 2017 made one major change from Twilight Sparkle from Friendship is Magic: her lack of a horn. Aside from the species change, her designs all looked very similar with her trademark bangs and purple/blue color scheme. All designs with a cutie mark kept her six-pointed star.
