Daydream Shimmer is the alter ego of Sunset Shimmer. She first appears in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games, where she fights Midnight Sparkle, who is the alter ego of human Twilight Sparkle.
Like her alter ego, she is voiced by Rebecca Shoichet.
My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games
When human Twilight's device starts gathering magic from the main characters and she releases it under pressure from Principal Cinch, she becomes overwhelmed and corrupted by the power. Sunset uses the device to harness the magic of friendship from her friends to become Daydream Shimmer to stop Twilight's rampage. In the end, Sunset realizes that she is fully capable of solving her own problems and that she can't always count on someone else to do it for her.
|“||(Sunset Shimmer: This isn't the way! I know you feel powerful right now, like you can have everything you want! I've been where you are, I've made the same mistake you're making! I put on a crown and, just like you, I was overwhelmed by the magic it contained! I thought it could get me everything I wanted!) (Midnight Sparkle: Oh, you're wrong. Unlike you, I can have everything I want!) (Sunset Shimmer: No, you can't. Even with all that magic and power, you'll still be alone! True magic comes from honesty! Loyalty! Laughter! Generosity! Kindness! I understand you, Twilight, and I want to show you the most important magic of all...) (transformation noises) ...the Magic of Friendship!||„|
