The backstory never imply those three are the only members of their species, just the sole ones known to have caused widespread strife. Other sirens exists in the Equestrian seas, and they can charm sailors and cause hostility too, but only on a very smalle scale, making them a minor sailing hazzard. The three that would be known as the Dazzlings, however, were on an entirely different scale thanks to their AmplifierArtifact gems. That's what allowed them to extend their influence to the land and, according to Twilight, they planned to control all of Equestria with it. That would indicate a level of power on par with some major villains like Discord or Tirek, putting the gems into the ArtifactOfDoom category. Luckily, the lack of magic in the human world drastically reduced this power, reducing the Dazzlings to mere emotion scavengers. Star Swirl the Bearded clearly had counted on their magic to be entirely shut down, but he underestimated the power of the three gems.

Both will want revenge for what the Humane Five did (Trixie will want revenge for the guitar incident and Sunset will want revenge for the first movie). However, they will be abused by the Dazzlings, and eventually perform a TheDogBitesBack moment and do a Heel-FaceTurn.

Out-of-universe reasons: She might not be given a speaking role because Hasbro wants to avoid another InternetBackdraft regarding how another popular fan character is depicted. She isn't given any lines to avoid upsetting anyone who wouldn't like any chosen depiction. Or perhaps her role is much more minor then the trailers are making her out to be.

Huge mass of blond curls, lead singer and leader of a trio of musicians, clad in triangle print clothing, intelligent and savvy, and quite sultry in nature (See The Battle of the Bands)? Not to mention, her band is a rival band, with rather hypnotic music, going up against an opponent with rather upbeat tunes. Why, that sounds like [[{{Jem}} a ringer for a certain band in another popular cartoon by Hasbro that was quite musical...]] To make the connection even clearer, the Stingers even have a song called "Under My Spell" (where the lead singer convinces someone to run away with him), in comparison to the Dazzlings' "Under Our Spell".

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: The Dazzlings are now living in a motel while working dull jobs]]
Adagio is now a waitress at a roadside diner, Aria works at a gas station/mini mart, and Sonata works at a car wash. All of this is outside of the general area of the town the school is based in, just far enough for them to be able to walk to in a few days. They've given up their ambitions of fame and conquest and now all just want a proper house with more than two small beds and a chair to sleep on.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: In the Love Triangle between Pony Twilight, Human Flash, and Pony Sunset, each member ships the other two together.]]
Twilight ships Flash with Sunset: As much as she has a crush on Flash, Princess Twilight knows her responsibilities are in Equestria. But she heard that Sunset and Flash used to be together before Flash broke up with her, likely because of Sunset's bullying. After the first film, Sunset is reformed, so Twilight can see those two get back together.

Sunset ships Twilight with Flash: As Sunset states in Rainbow Rocks, "Flash is a great guy, but I never really like him like him; I was just using him to become more popular." She most likely sees Twilight treating Flash with more respect than Sunset did to him.

Flash ships Twilight with Sunset: As much as he has a crush on Twilight, Flash saw how great Twilight and Sunset were in harmony with each other during the Finals of the Battle of the Bands. He might later have heard about the chemistry between the two girls. Being a nice guy, he would want his beloved to be happy.


The Dazzlings are mysteriously absent from the third film, but are referenced, so no ChuckCunninghamSyndrome. They've been human for over a thousand years, presumably kept alive and young forever by the power contained in their pendants. When the pendants were destroyed, they lost their power and their immortality, so maybe their absence is because, probably shortly after they ran off, they aged rapidly and died (much like [[spoiler: Adam Monroe]] from ''{{LiveActionTV/Heroes}}'').

Honestly I'm one of those people that thinks the Dazzlings to be generic GirlPosse crossed with EvilDiva ,but that's just my opinion. However I've noticed that the fandom freaking loves them. And I would find nothing wrong with that since [[EvilIsCool evil can be cool at times]] ,but I'm talking about the people that apply DracoInLeatherPants to them. And it gets kind of scary considering they have the ability to make people fall for them. So maybe that's why

And furthermore, there are two very likely candidates as to who Adagio Dazzle and Aria Blaze were possessing. Starlight Glimmer has the same coloring scheme as Aria (and it was never specified how long is between Rainbow Rocks and The Cutie Map), and the unicorn Tropical Dream, appearing in the episode Princess Spike, has the same coloring scheme and hairstyle as Adagio. Both only appeared in Season 5 so it is possible that after being released from the sirens' control, Starlight, Tropical Dream, and whoever Sonata was possessing returned to Equestria, with little to no memory of having been possessed for a thousand years (as Starlight mentioned having studied a spell for years, and knew her way through the caves). This would ironically make Starlight another villain from a thousand years ago, just like Nightmare Moon, Discord, Sombra, Tirek, the Dazzlings, and (in comic canon only) Chrysalis.

Chrysalis. While this would mean Starlight would have had to become a better singer for In Our Town, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo have also improved since The Show Stoppers.

[[WMG: The sirens are possessing ponies]]
The idea might seem preposterous at first, but due to pony depictions of the Dazzlings by Hasbro, when we've already seen their true siren forms, there is a theory that three ponies found the pendants which corrupted them and transformed them into sirens. Why not take it a step further and say the sirens were spirits residing in the stone that possessed the ponies, physically transforming their bodies into the siren forms? And they suddenly lose the ability to sing once the stones are destroyed (which, going by this theory, could have actually been the death of the sirens). True, they did try to sing their previous song, but this could be residual influence of the sirens, much like the corruption of the Alicorn Amulet took some time to wear off Trixie when it was removed, even though its power immediately went away.

** I’m going to expand on that. First came the Sirens, and they used their songs to spread conflict and disharmony among ponies. Starswirl successfully banished them, but the damage had been done—hatred and division had been spread across ponykind, and most importantly, the Windigoes had arrived, following close behind the Dazzlings (who were perhaps the most powerful of their kind, or just [[StrongerWithAge the first]]). With the Dazzlings and their [[HatePlague songs]] gone, the Windigoes had to find a new source of [[EmotionEater hatred/food]], which resulted in the Great Blizzard. The events of Heart’s Warming Eve happen, and the three pony races pull up roots and settle a new homeland—Equestria. But, in between the Dazzlings’ rampage, the Great Blizzard, and the general confusion of a nation-wide exodus, a great deal of chaos comes about, catching the attention of a certain draconequus…\\
Equestria languishes under Discord’s rule for an indeterminate amount of time, until Luna and Celestia arrive and defeat him, becoming the new rulers of Equestria. At first, all seems to be going well, but all the chaos and confusion of the time between the Dazzlings’ and Discord’s reigns had left a great deal of divisions and bitterness in ponies’ hearts, not even mentioning the literal magical fallout brought about by assorted evil beings running amok, which eventually resulted in King Sombra’s corruption and Luna’s transformation into Nightmare Moon. At some point during this period and before Luna’s fall, Tirek and Scorpan attack, taking advantage of ponykind’s weak and fractured state.\\
In short, the Dazzlings were directly or indirectly responsible for ''every single disaster in pony history'', except for the changelings, [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere who nopony ever heard of before the Canterlot Wedding]], which is why nobody knew anything about them (Twilight learned about them from Cadance, who got her info from [[EvilGloating Chrysalis herself]]).

Equestria languishes under Discord’s rule Discord takes over, and begins to amuse himself by playing his little sadistic games with ponies, all of which backfire spectacularly for an indeterminate amount of time, until his “co-players”. Most important, long-term, is one where he offers the Flutterponies a [[DealWithTheDevil deal]] that ends up turning them into the first Changelings. Eventually, Luna and Celestia arrive and defeat him, becoming the new rulers of Equestria.
