%%* KnightInSourArmor: Particularly during Season 2. She gets better.

* AllLovingHero: Like the other mane heroines, though it's not apparent in the first few seasons, but by Season 4, she's become one of the kindest and emotional friends you'll know, if a bit snarky.

* BadassBookworm: Becomes one as a result of getting a real love of reading.

** There's some regarding her friendship with Fluttershy. In early episodes, Rainbow Dash had little to no tolerance for Fluttershy's meekness, bordering on outright contempt in "Dragonshy". Starting with Season 2 she is shown devoting more time to her and acting more gentle and encouraging, somewhat taking the role of an abrasive but well-meaning CoolBigSis. ** There's also her attitude towards Scootaloo. At first she appeared to see Scootaloo as nothing more than a fangirl, but later episodes show her taking a more active interest in her and becoming her surrogate CoolBigSis in "Sleepless in Ponyville". The best example of this dynamic is shown in "Brotherhooves Social", where they not only compete despite not being related, but ''win'' the big race (even if was due to a [[DisqualificationInducedVictory technicality]]).

Starting with Season 2 she is shown devoting more time to her and acting more gentle and encouraging, somewhat taking the role of an abrasive but well-meaning CoolBigSis. By Season 5, Fluttershy's become enough of her friend that she is the only one who can snap Rainbow Dash out of her HeroicBSOD after realizing the futility of halting winter. ** There's also her attitude towards Scootaloo.

The best example of this dynamic is shown in "Brotherhooves Social", where they not only compete despite not being related, but ''win'' the big race (even if was due to a [[DisqualificationInducedVictory technicality]]). Earlier than that we have Flight to the Finish where a broken Scootaloo gets instantly cheered up thanks to kind words from Rainbow Dash. This is a stark contrast to her tactlessness in earlier seasons when it comes to other ponies feelings (most notably Dragonshy).

* DrillSergeantNasty: She can have a very dominating voice as TheLeader of Ponyvile's pegasi. It's part of her Headstrong leader approach.
to:
'''Rainbow Dash:''' I DON'T WANT HIM TO GOOOOOOO! (From Tanks for the Memories about her pet tortoise Tank) * DrillSergeantNasty: She can have a very dominating voice as TheLeader of Ponyvile's pegasi. It's part of her Headstrong leader approach. She is commonly a coach when it comes to this role, wearing a black and white hat and a whistle.

** "May the Best Pet Win!": She ran the competiton like bootcamp.
to:
** "May the Best Pet Win!": She ran the competiton competition like bootcamp.bootcamp, not realizing she wasn't picking a soldier for her platoon but a pet to care and love for. She learns her lesson in the end not to focus on physical attributes over personality.

Added DiffLines:
** "May In Friends Forever 11, she is extremely sweet to the Best Pet Win!": She ran young foals and gently encouraging, even going as far as to end the competiton like bootcamp.class when they all start crying. Contrast to Spitfire who is a frozen nervous wreck and then decides to bust out her DrillSergeantNasty persona. Not the best idea in Spitfire's case.

Added DiffLines:
** "May Played for laughs in ''The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy'' and ''Bats!'' when she is obsessed with cider and even channels Helen Lovejoy when it's revealed she might not get it in the Best Pet Win!": She ran latter episode. In the competiton like bootcamp.former episode, she struggles to get cider but it's constantly taken from her until a very heartwarming epilogue.
