This is how The Mane Seven meet Hardshell, Sharpshot, and Kickback goes in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree.
[That night, Twilight has another nightmare]
Twilight Sparkle (EG): [refering to Thunderwing in her sleep] No. Not you. Anyone but you.
[In her dream]
Thunderwing: It is only a matter of time before we bring Midnight Sparkle back, Human Twilight.
Twilight Sparkle (EG): That won't happen. My friends won't let it.
Thunderwing: Or will they?
[Thunderwing points to Twilight's friends who are unconscious on the floor. In reality, Twilight jolts awake]
Twilight Sparkle (EG): NOOOOOOOOO!!!
[Sunset and Twilight see a bug like robot come out the shadows followed by two others]
Sharpshot: Ohhhh, what do we have here?
Kickback: Is it something to eat, eat, eat?
Sunset Shimmer: What are they?
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Gigantic robo-insects. That's what.
Hardshell: Hey! What'd they call us?!
Sharpshot: I don't know. Let's show them how vicious we are in bot mode.
[Sharpshot, Kickback, and Hardshell transform to robot mode]
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Please don't hurt us. Please don't hurt us.
Sharpshot: Give us one good reason why we shouldn't.
Sunset Shimmer: We need your help. I sense that another servant of Unicron has turned up.
Sunset Shimmer: Because, he or she is causing strange things to happen at Camp Everfree and its causing big problems from everyone.
Sharpshot: [sniffling] That's mean. [to Kickback and Hardshell] We gotta help these girls.
Hardshell: [to Sunset and Twilight] He hasn't been the same since he got hurt last time.
Sunset Shimmer: Thank you. Thank you so much for helping us. By the way, I'm Sunset Shimmer and this is Twilight Sparkle.
Sharpshot: We're Hardshell, Sharpshot, and Kickback.
Sunset Shimmer: Good to meet you, Hardshell. [holds out her hand to Sharpshot]
Sharpshot: I'm Sharpshot. [points to Hardshell on the right] He's Hardshell. [points to Kickback on the left] He's Kickback.
Sunset Shimmer: Oh. Nice to meet you guys.
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Uh, why don't I tell you guys my backstory before we introduce you to our friends?
Sharpshot: Ooh. A story.
Kickback: I like a story, story, story.
Sunset Shimmer: [to Sharpshot] Why does Kickback repeat the last word he says?
Sharpshot: He...has his uses.
Sunset Shimmer: Oh.
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Anyways, I used to be a student of CHS rival school, Crystal Prep. I was investigating the strange energy, which I didn't realize was magic, coming from [points to Sunset] her school. On the day of the Friendship Games, I was chosen to compete but then as I was investigating the energy, this amulet I made began absorbing the magic by itself and also caused rifts to a world called Equestria to open. Still don't know how that happened. And then during the last event, I was forced to unleash the contained energy by my school principle and classmates and then I got turned into a crow-winged girl named Midnight Sparkle. As Midnight Sparkle, I sought to understand magic by opening several rifts to Sunset's world even if I destroyed this world in the process. But thankfully, Sunset used my amulet in a different way and used its contained magic to free me from Midnight Sparkle's control. After that, I decided to transfer to CHS and have been a Canterlot Wondercolt ever since. I'm still anxious about turning back into Midnight Sparkle though.
Kickback: We need to ask you a favor, favor, favor.
Hardshell: Tell us. Is the Cybertronian civil war still going on? Who's winning?
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Yeah.
Sunset Shimmer: The Autobots are winning so far.
Sharpshot: Well Hardshell, Kickback, and I changed sides to the Autobots.
Twilight Sparkle (EG): What do you mean change sides?
Sunset Shimmer: Yeah.
Sharpshot: It's so we can help keep you safe.
[Sunset, Twilight, Sharpshot, Kickback, and Hardshell arrive at the campsite]
Sunset Shimmer: [to Sharpshot, Kickback, and Hardshell] Oh thanks for dropping us off. We can handle it from here.
Twilight Sparkle (EG): Yeah.
Sharpshot: Oh, we can't leave now. We're emotionally invested.
Kickback: I need to relax, relax, relax.
Hardshell: And I need to grab a quick oil bath.
Applejack (EG): We're looking for Sunset and Twilight.
Sharpshot: We know Sunset and Twilight.
Rainbow Dash (EG): Good enough for me.
Pinkie Pie (EG): Me too.
Rarity (EG): Me three.
Applejack (EG): Me four.
Fluttershy (EG): Me five.
Hardshell: I like your wings.
Rainbow Dash (EG): Thanks.
Fluttershy (EG): I like them too.
Kickback: [to Rarity (EG)] I like your hair, hair, hair.
Rarity (EG): Why thank you.
Sharpshot: That's a picture of one of our Insecticon Bruisers, Hog.
Applejack (EG): His name's Hog?
Pinkie Pie (EG): Nice.
Sharpshot: It was. We changed it to Kevin.
Twilight Sparkle (EG):
Rainbow Dash (EG):
Pinkie Pie (EG):
Sharpshot: Anybody got jelly?
[Kickback brings out a bag filled with jars of jelly]
Kickback: Which jelly do you need, need, need? I've got grape, strawberry, boysenberry, I got some jam, jam, jam. I got a bunch of marmalade, some chutney, chutney, chutney.
