* {{Badass}}: The biggest of the Mane Six by far. ''She kicked a fully-grown dragon in the face and made it flinch'', and has executed a Sonic Rainboom -- a maneuver previously thought to exist only in legend -- three times. Her first one happened when she was a filly in flight camp.

* AwesomeEgo: There's no denying that she [[{{Understatement}} has an inflated opinion of herself,]] but admit it, [[{{Badass}} if you were able to leave behind a rainbow trail after breaking the sound barrier,]] wouldn't you brag? Not to mention that she doesn't really let it get the best of her... ''most of the time.''
--> '''[[WebAnimation/DeathBattle Wizard]]:''' Rainbow often brags that she's the fastest in the world, and you know what? She's right.

Added DiffLines:

* LastSecondShowoff: Rainbow Dash is prone to this:
** It's her EstablishingCharacterMoment in the very first episode. Dash is supposed to clear the clouds out of the sky in time for a major celebration, but she lazes about while there are still a bunch of clouds left. She brags that she can afford to wait, because she can remove all the clouds "in ten seconds flat"--and she actually does.
** In "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well," another pony falls from a broken hot air balloon, but Dash waits to sign an autograph before zipping off to the rescue. This time, she's actually a second late. Fortunately, there was someone else to save the day.

Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByAwesome: It's not focused on too much, but her exceptional skills and powers have started to become underwhelmed by Twilight Sparkle's ever increasing SuperpowerLottery. Twilight even handily neutralises her as a RunningGag.
** Subverted in her main forte however. Despite becoming an Alicorn, Twilight can not outfly Rainbow Dash, as displayed in their BestOutOfInfinity racing contest in "Castle Sweet Castle".
