Heroine Overview

What'd I say? Ten. Seconds. Flat. I'd never leave Ponyville hangin'.
~ Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow Dash is one of the six main deuteragonists in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is the third-in-command of the Mane 6, after Applejack. She is a sky blue Pegasus with a rainbow Multicolored Hair mane and tail. She is one of the main deuteragonists of My Little Pony: The Movie and My Little Pony: Pony Life, a supporting character in My Little Pony: Equestria Girls, and a posthumous character in the 2021 Netflix movie My Little Pony: A New Generation.

She is responsible for maintaining and clearing the skies in Ponyville. She is also a huge admirer of The Wonderbolts and dreams of joining their flying group. She represented the element of loyalty. She has a pet tortoise named Tank which is introduced in May the Best Pet Win!.

She is voiced by Ashleigh Ball, who also voiced Applejack. In video game, she is voiced by Brittany Lauda. In MAD TV series, she is voiced by Tara Strong and Kath Soucie. In Japanese dub from the series, she is voiced by Izumi Kitta, who also voiced Yuri Oreki in Chivalry of a Failed Knight.

Appearance

She has a baby-blue body, magenta eyes, and a rainbow-striped mane and tail.

Personality

She is very loyal, cocky, boastful (sometimes), arrogant (sometimes), brash (sometimes), impatient (sometimes), but selfless, friendly, very protective, accepting, motherly (to Scootaloo when they are having a sister bond) tolerant, helpful, warm, kind, forgiving, responsible, understanding, compassionate, strong and powerful.

History

Rainbow Dash was the first in her class to get her cutie mark. She tells the Cutie Mark Crusaders in The Cutie Mark Chronicles the story of how she got her cutie mark. Her story is set in summer flight camp, where she defends Fluttershy from a pair of bullies, who refer to Rainbow Dash as "Rainbow Crash". Hoops, one of the bullies already has their cutie marks, where Dash and Fluttershy do not. Dash challenges the two bullies to a flying Pegasus race, and in the ensuing contest, she discovers her passion for speed and for "winning", in her words. Going through the race course, she performs her very first sonic rainboom, not only gaining her own cutie mark but also inadvertently setting in motion the events that would cause Fluttershy and her future Ponyville friends to gain their own cutie marks.

Powers and Abilities

  • Pegasus Physiology: Rainbow Dash is a pegasus who is responsible for maintaining the weather and clearing the skies in Ponyville.
  • Fly: A standard pegasus ability.
    • Supersonic Fly: Rainbow demonstrated remarkable speed and agility in the air, Rainbow Dash has proven herself to be a capable and accomplished flier.
    • Superhuman Strength: Rainbow Dash is very powerfully strong, enough to shake the rocky walls when pounding her hoofs onto it and kicking the rocks to block the cave to keep the Fly-ders from getting inside.
  • Weather Manipulation: Rainbow Dash has demonstrated her ability to manipulate the weather numerous times. She clears the skies of Ponyville of clouds "in ten seconds flat", dispersing the clouds by kicking them. She leads water droplets out of a cloud, and creates a rainbow above her when the droplets splash against her. She teams up with other Pegasus ponies to create a whirlwind that sucks away clouds and snow from Ponyville, and she creates a tornado to vacuum the parasprites.
  • Sonic Rainboom: This stunt is performed when Rainbow Dash flies up to the sky and flies down at speed, then releasing a a vibrantly-colored ring that expands from the point of the sonic rainboom's occurrence accompanied by a shockwave and a rainbow wake trailing behind it.

Quotes

I know the world can get you down. Things don't work out quite the way that you thought. Feeling all like your best days are done. Your fears and doubts are all you've got. But there's a light shining deep inside. Beneath those fears and doubts. So just squash 'em. And let shine for all the world to see. That it is time yeah, time to be awesome. Don't let them rob you of who you are. Be awesome, it's all up to you.
~ Rainbow Dash during the song, "Time to Be Awesome".
