Lyra Heartstrings is a G4 Unicorn Pony. Initially a nameless background pony in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, she was given the name Lyra by fans for her lyre cutie mark. Hasbro would later release a blind bag pony with her features named Heartstings; the following blind bag set contained the same toy with the updated named Lyra Heartstrings, which has been her name in all later merchandise.

Lyra is a background pony, usually used to fill in crowd scenes. She has also been used as a source of background humor, as she has been seen jumping around excitedly, drinking from a cup, or slouching like a person on a park bench. She often appears in the company of Sweetie Drops. Her only speaking appearance was in A Canterlot Wedding: Part 1, where she is one of Princess Cadance's bridesmares. She is later brainwashed by Queen Chrysalis into attacking Twilight Sparkle and Princess Cadance. She later appears in "Slice of Life", where she is seen decorating for a wedding with Sweetie Drops, whom she knows as Bon Bon. The two have a falling out after Bon Bon reveals her true identity as Special Agent Sweetie Drops, a former monster fighter, but the two make up.

My Little Pony Favorite Collection
Lyra Heartstrings was included in the second edition of the favorites collection.
This version came in a plastic package by herself without any accessories or a backcard story. She is facing left instead of right and has a darker eye color than the original. This is due to a simplified paint application that uses only one shade of gold for her iris.
