Sunset Shimmer, to the best of my understanding, is a pony who was sent to Canterlot High by Princess Celestia. We've seen plenty of human counterparts including counterparts for all of the main characters and several minor characters. Does Sunset Shimmer have a known human equivalent in the My Little Pony canon?


In canon? No. Not yet. In theory? Yes. As with all alternate universes there is a counterpart to the first. And the Equestria Girls world is an alternate universe. So I would say that Sunset Shimmer does indeed have a human counterpart. We just are highly unlikely to ever meet her.

    While it is common for alternate versions of characters to exist in alternate universes, there is no rule saying as such. Example: Jake Sisko from the show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine does not have a mirror counterpart in Star Trek's mirror universe. So, I don't think you can theorize that she definitively exists. – Ellesedil Mar 22 '16 at 17:02
  • @Ellesedil I suppose you do have a point. However given the information we have, we can gather that she likely has some sort of alternate universe counterpart. For all we know Equestria Girls' Sunset Shimmer could be a dog. I mean it did happen to Rose Tyler in Doctor Who. – Alli Zee Mar 22 '16 at 21:20

I think that Sunset Shimmer doesn't have a human counterpart; it's entirely possible that there isn't Sunset Shimmer in that universe.

  • Do you have any evidence to support the idea the Sunset Shimmer wouldn't have a human counterpart, or has one just never been seen? – Edlothiad Jun 26 '18 at 6:22
