Flash Sentry is a character from the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls franchise.

Flash is a student at Canterlot High School, electric guitarist for the band "Flash Drive", and Sunset Shimmer's ex-boyfriend. He is best friends with Micro Chips and Sandalwood.

In the AWA fics, Flash is a student at the AWA Academy.

In the XP4 fics, Flash is currently working at the Heroes Coalition and is a part of The Dream Express. He also attends Vanguard Academy as a student.


Flash has a pale, amber skin tone, a blue spiky-brushed up hair and has blue eyes. He wears a black jacket with red & white lines around the chest area over a white t-shirt with a lightning flash over a shield logo, blue pants and black & white sneakers.


Flash Sentry is portrayed as kind and gentlemanly, as evidenced by his helping Twilight when she falls over. He returns Twilight's feelings of affection towards him. In the first two films, he also shows signs of social awkwardness and clumsiness, such as walking into a door while escorting Twilight to the Fall Formal dance and backing into a wall while exiting the band room.

While under the effect of the Dazzlings' magic, Flash becomes arrogant, cold, and spiteful. He lashes out at Twilight when she takes part in the Battle of the Bands, believing that she is trying to take victory away from him and he publicly ridicules Sunset Shimmer, calling her "the bad girl we love to hate."

Despite his typical niceness, Flash is still prone to frustration, demonstrated when he argues with Micro Chipsand Sandalwood in A Banner Day and when his attempt at being friendly with the Shadowbolts is dismissed in Friendship Games.

  • Flash can create a powerful blue-blurred tornado that disintegrates his targets.


  • His band is called "Flash Drive", if you were wondering. It's only mentioned in the books.
  • In "Queen of Clubs", he is shown to be in the Science Club and Baking Club.
  • Other than Spike, he's the most prominent male character in the Equestria Girls franchise due to his Satellite Love Interest status. He's also the first "Equestria Boy" to receive a doll, packaged with Human Twilight Sparkle of course.
  • His hair makes him look like he walked out of an anime of some kind, made all the more obvious since he appears to have a relatively normal human skin-tone.
