* ObfuscatingStupidity: She did this in the early seasons, presenting a BookDumb facade because she was insecure about herself and didn't want to be seen as an egghead. Post CharacterDevelopment, she is no longer afraid to show her intelligence, which turns out to be pretty formidable. She doesn't learn easily in a classroom setting, but it's not because of her being stupid, or having a learning disability, but because she gets bored.

Post CharacterDevelopment, she is no longer afraid to show her intelligence, which turns out to be pretty formidable. She was able to EASILY outsmart a dragon and trick him into dropping a shield he was holding in a dragon contest (so she could give it to Spike who would then win the contest).

* * GenreMotif\{{Leitmotif}}: Rock. Her appearance is often accompanied by an electric guitar in musical numbers that don't use the instrument anywhere else such as Rarity's second fashion show and "At the Gala".

** Rainbow Dash and Rarity are a DecompositeCharacter of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 G3 and G3.5 Rainbow Dash]], with Rainbow getting her name and color and Rarity getting her personality and love for fashion. Ironically, G3 Rainbow Dash was an Earth Pony. [[OlderThanTheyThink Although the animated G3 Rainbow Dash]] was originally an OneeSama with a taste for fashion who underwent {{flanderization}} into being a bubbly, immature pony with a love of dressing up, the G3 comic version had a hugely adventurous streak and was effectively an inverted TomboyWithAGirlyStreak. As the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/MyLittlePonyG3 G3 Character Sheet]] notes, one G3 comic's description of her reads: "Rainbow Dash is the most outrageous pony you'll ever meet! When it comes to adventure, excitement, and fun, if Rainbow Dash hasn't done it, it's never been done!"

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Rainbow Dash has a tendency to be arrogant and hotheaded. However she has no problems helping out other ponies in need as well as sticking by her friends no matter what. "May the Best Pet Win!" sums this up nicely -- Dash puts the prospective pets through some tough trials, but it's to make sure they can keep up with her and don't get hurt by jumping into it without knowing what she needs from a pet. It's also highlighted in "Hurricane Fluttershy" where she's rather gruff to the pegasi and Fluttershy, but ultimately drops all plans to beat the record after she finds several pegasi have gotten sick and is even shown being amazingly patient and comforting to Fluttershy.

By the later seasons, the "jerk" part is almost completely nonexistent.

* CoolTeacher: Acts like one (well, a cool coach) in both "Flight to the Finish", and especially the 11th Friends Forever comic.

* ClosetGeek: Of ''JustForFun/DaringDo'' during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It and Weep]]". By the end of the episode, she comes out of the closet, [[ContinuityNod and is seen reading it during]] "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend in Deed]]".

* ClosetGeek: Of ''JustForFun/DaringDo'' during "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It and Weep]]". By the end of the episode, she comes out of the closet, [[ContinuityNod and is seen reading it during]] "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E18AFriendInDeed A Friend in Deed]]". While her love for Daring Do has become a pretty big aspect of her character, Dash seems to have other closeted geeky activities. In the unnamed sixth story arc of the ''Friendship is Magic'' comic series, Dash is shown to be quite fond of ''Pony Trek'', an obvious homage to [[Television/StarTrek Star Trek]]



* RealityWarper: Briefly. In the unamed sixth story arc in the ''Friendship is Magic'' comic series, Rainbow Dash gained the ability to create and warp entire realities to her hearts content. Within the second half of the arc, Pinkie Pie (who gained the same ability) created a world resembling ''[[Literature/LordoftheRings Lord of the Rings]]'', and Dash transformed that world into a recreation of "''Pony Trek''", an obvious homage to ''[[Television/StarTrek Star Trek]]''.



* SuperStrength: All indications point to her being, by far, the most physically powerful of the Mane Six. She can effortlessly defeat Applejack at hoof-wrestling, deliver blows of incredible power, and impact the ground with such ruinous force as to raze buildings. Should she lose control of her mind, subduing her requires the combined effort of her five friends.

Should she lose control of her mind, subduing her requires the combined effort of her five friends. UpToEleven in the comics. In the ''Nightmare Rarity'' storyline, Dash helped ''pull the moon'' closer to the planet, albeit with the help of all of her friends, Luna and Celestia, and in the ''Reflections'' arc, Dash was capable of holding her own against an evil version of Princess Luna quite well.
** However, her superiority over her friends is often times zigzagged. In earlier episodes, particularly ''Fall Weather Friends'', Dash was more or less shown to be equal with Applejack in most physical activities and in the gag manga story ''Are They Rivals!?'', Dash and Applejack are shown to be just as strong as each other in their hoof-wrestling match, with AJ only winning by abusing Dash's love for Apple Cider.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: Mostly in the comics. In ''Friendship is Magic #2'', Dash was defeated, in a single panel no less, by a spider monster roughly the size of her and in ''The Good, The Bad, and the Ponies'' storyline, Dash was ''ragdolled'' in a single hit by Longhorn.


Added DiffLines:

** She's really good friends with Spike, despite being quite different from him in many regards. While they apparently share a love for Pony Trek (though they never really interact about it), their personalities are quite different. They don't interact much on screen, but when they do, Dash usually teases Spike, but she's shown to really care about him. When she overheard him saying he wanted to stay with Dragons forever, she was devastated.
