Depiction in Equestria Girls
Wallflower Blush first appears in Forgotten Friendship when Sunset Shimmer accidentally bumps into her at the end of We've Come So Far. While Sunset believes that it is the first time they have met, Wallflower tells her they met in ninth-grade English class and that she has been on the school's Yearbook Committee all year, much to Sunset's embarrassment. When Sunset and her friends leave the room with Trixie, Wallflower is left behind in the dark after Sunset turns out the lights.
During Sunset and Trixie's investigation of Sunset's friends' memories being mysteriously erased, they discover Wallflower Blush to be the culprit. It is revealed through Sunset's geode powers that Wallflower had gone unnoticed by her schoolmates for years and that she accidently found the Memory Stone that Clover the Clever buried long ago in human's world. Resentful toward Sunset for being so popular despite how she treated everyone during freshman year, Wallflower used the Stone to erase everyone's good memories of Sunset, causing them to view her as the bully that she once was.
Before Sunset and Trixie can seize the Memory Stone from Wallflower, she uses it to erase their memories of the past several hours and locks them in the room. Sunset catches up with Wallflower later, and during their confrontation, Wallflower reveals what she did in front of Sunset's friends and expresses her outright hatred toward Sunset. Ignoring Sunset's pleas, Wallflower decides to use the Stone to erase all of the girls' high school memories, but Sunset jumps in the way and sacrifices her own. When Sunset loses all her memories of human world and starts acting like a pony, Wallflower realizes what she just did but too late. After the Stone is destroyed and Sunset and her friends' memories are restored, Wallflower apologizes Sunset what she has done to her and makes amends with Sunset.
Some time later, Wallflower gets some new members for her Gardening Club, and she is named "Best Gardener" in the school yearbook.
Wallflower Blush is a quiet and introverted girl who is typically ignored and quickly forgotten by the rest of the student body, instilling her with a feeling of complete invisibility. She is initially resentful toward Sunset Shimmer for both being so popular and constantly ignoring her presence, she also prejudice towards her due to her past, but her demeanor slowly changes from bitter to remorseful during the climax of Forgotten Friendship. Wallflower also has a passion for gardening, which led to her founding the school's Gardening Club. Due to having no friends, she develop a harsh expression of cynicism and a negative philosophy about friendship.
- Wallflower Blush is the second character who gets jealous of Sunset Shimmer due to her reputation after Cutie Mark Crusaders from Equestria Girls.
- As said by Sunset that she's just like her, Wallflower acts as a foil to Sunset. Both of them appeared to be an outcast and didn't even get befriended to everyone. However, Sunset managed to make more friends, while Wallflower had no friends due to being invisible for many years. Both of them also represents the breaking bond of Humane Six. Coincidentally, Wallflower's nihilistic behavior was very similar to Sunset's disgraceful behavior in the first Equestria Girls film, specifically her abusive and selfish behavior. Also by coincidence, both characters also ended up reformed themselves during the climax (Sunset appeared to be a greedy and prideful rival to Twilight until she was defeated by Twilight and her friends in the first film; likewise, Wallflower appeared to be a nihilistic and vengeful towards Sunset until she finally make amends with her). Wallflower is a example what Sunset will become if she will lose her friends forever.
- Wallflower also serve as lesson for Sunset in the film, Because if Sunset didn't being mean to everyone or make effort to have friends, then she would've ended up being like Wallflower.
- Wallflower shares a lot of character traits with Starlight Glimmer from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. They both seemed to be friendly at first but were eventually revealed to be tragic nihilist in the end due to their respective past (Wallflower is typically ignored and quickly forgotten by the rest of the student body, instilling her with a feeling of complete invisibility and Starlight lost her only friend Sunburst after he received his cutie mark). Because of this, both try to get revenge on protagonists (Wallflower to Sunset and Starlight to Twilight) by trying to ruined their friendships (Wallflower using the memory stone to remove the good memories of Sunset Shimmer so everyone returned to hate Sunset and Starlight get revenge on Twilight by travel back in time and destroy the friendship between the Mane 6 so everything in Equestria will be destroyed). This is mainly because of a sense of feeling rejected or unloved, which were clearly seen in both My Little Pony villains.
- Oddly enough, their remorse are causing them to apologize to Twilight and her friends. However, both of them were in that one of the Mane Six's actions was seemingly able to reform her, Sunset for Wallflower and Twilight for Starlight.
- However, Starlight had sympathetic traits as she genuinely wanted to make whats best for everypony until developing her bitterness towards Twilight; Twilight even managed to negate Starlight to move on from the past, knowing that Starlight will believe in friendship and abandoned her hatred of cutie marks. Wallflower, on the other hand, lacks any sympathy due to her beliefs that friendship is an illusion and seeing Sunset as nothing but a trash that she deserved to be forgotten until her redemption.
- Wallflower is also an opposite to Trixie. Trixie represents the love between Sunset and Humane Six, but Wallflower represents the breaking of Sunset and Humane Six's bond.
