* 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.

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.

* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: She is shown to be a poor caretaker of Tank in later seasons. "Tanks for the Memories" has her attempting to prevent winter from coming just so he wouldn't have to hibernate. Then in "Secrets and Pies", she feeds her discarded pies (including the ''tin'') to Tank, giving him digestive problems.

* HeroicBSOD: In "Tanks for the Memories", when her attempts to stop winter from coming so Tank won't have to hibernate accidentally result in an early winter, she becomes too depressed to do more than stay in her house and lie in bed with Tank. It takes some harsh words from Fluttershy to jolt her out of it (and a big crying fit).

* BatmanGambit: She handily cons Garble out of the Netitus shield in "Shadow Play -- Part 1" after he goes back on his word when he wagers it on a race with Spike. Playing on his {{Pride}}, she riles him up by claiming he must not be a very good racer if Spike only had to ''fall'' to beat him. When an angry Garble demands a race back to the starting point to prove his skill, Dash casually claims beating him will be easy, but him flying with a heavy piece of metal on his body will make it even easier. Garble, not wanting to lose, thanks her mockingly, drops Netitus and flies away... and only realizes he was played for a dupe when he sees Rainbow flying off with the shield she goaded him into dropping at her hooves.
