Self Demonstrating: Rainbow Dash
My picture makes this page... well, you know!

Hey, what's up? This is the number one aerial acrobatic, wielder of the Element of Loyalty, and future Wonderbolt speaking, so you better listen!

My name is Rainbow Dash, and I'm quite possibly the coolest pony you'll ever meet! Even at a young age I was pulling off awesome feats that even impressed myself, like pulling off my signature move, the 'Sonic Rainboom'. It's what even got me my cutie mark!

My life's dream is to join the Wonderbolts, the most awesome stunt team in the skies! I've already managed to impress their leader, Spitfire, so it's only a matter of time now! In the meantime, I like to hang out with my friends and practice my stunts, all of which are pretty awesome! The only time I'm not are either when I'm napping or reading the Daring Do series. (Which is SO. TOTALLY. AWESOME! by the way. Don't let the fact that it's a book series fool you!)

Totally awesome Tropes that apply to me:

  • 20% More Awesome: I'm the Trope Namer!
  • The Ace: There's a reason I'm considered the best flier in Ponyville!
  • Badflank Adorable: Okay… I guess you humans tend to find us ponies adorable. And there's no doubt I'm a real Bad-Flank.
  • Berserk Button: If you hurt… no… if you even THINK about hurting any of my friends, you're going down faster than you can say 'I'm in pain!', got it?
  • Broke Your Hoof Bucking Out Cthulhu: In my issue of the My Little Pony Micro Series, I managed to stop the gremlins wrecking havoc in Ponyville by causing a Double Sonic Rainboom inspires the ponies enough to deprive the gremlins of the negative emotions they needed, but pushing myself that hard paralyzed my wings for two months. But it was Worth It! I was flying again after that and I never saw those trouble makers again.
  • Colbert Bump: I got one from Death Battle when I blow up that dimwit Starscream.
  • Cool Big Sis: Scootaloo sees me as one… and well, I can't blame the kid for looking up to me. And yes, I admit it, I have a very soft spot for my Number One Fan.
  • Counterpart Comparison: A lot of people see my pride, Super Speed and say I'm like a female Sonic the Hedgehog.
    • Anime fans have also compared me to that noisy ninja kid Narutonote , which I guess is okay, and Black Star from Soul Eater, after his Character development.
  • Deadpan Snarker: No, not at all.
  • Elemental Powers: Since I can control weather:
    • Blow You Away: I can create tornadoes by flying in circles.
    • Shock and Awe: I've sometimes created lightning from clouds, but I never use it for much besides pranks.
  • Era-Specific Personality: So apparently there was this earth mare named Rainbow Dash who was apparently a fashionista.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: How any of my ideas to join the Wonderbolts turned out, prior to the Wonderbolt Academy, which they didn't actually reveal what happened after that.
    • I recently got offered another chance to join the Wonderbolts during the Equestria games, but I decided to stick with Ponyville's team.
  • Fanfilly: For Daring Do and the Wonderbolts, though of course, I have much more dignity than the average fanfilly.
  • Fantastic Nuke: I used one after going at my top speed to destroy Applejack's old barn (she needed it knocked down) that caused a rainbow colored mushroom cloud, fans call it the Atomic Rainnuke. It even supplies the trope image.
  • Genius Bruiser: Absolutely!
  • Improbable Flying Skills: My move the Buccaneer Blaze, which my Imagine Spot showed off-screen and creates an explosion. If you don't believe I can do that, watch Lesson Zero, I created a mushroom cloud shaped explosion to destroy Applejack's old barn. You guys have called that the Atomic Rain Nuke for some reason.
  • Insane Troll Logic: I am not a troll. Oh, that's not what it means. Okay. Coolness, awesomeness and radicalness ARE different things, you people just don't understand why.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: I'll admit I sometimes let my ego get the better of me, but I'd never turn my back on anypony that needed my help, least of all my friends.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: What is up with you guys? For some reason, my fans keep thinking I have a thing with at least one of my friends.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: I don't know who's this 'Leroy', but if you mean I let my actions do the talking and that… sometimes… I rush into action without having a plan… Okay, I admit it, I do this more often than I should.
  • Never Live It Down: I only said twenty percent cooler and ten seconds flat ONCE, and yet everypony acts like they're my catch phrases. I mean come on, I appreciate ponies (and people) liking what I say, but pay attention.
  • Odd Friendship: Why would a super cool pony like myself befriend, let's say, a bookworm, a Drama Queen, a Cloudcuckoolander, or somepony who fears her own shadow? Because I have no best friend; ALL my friends are the best!! Sure, I might be the coolest, but every single of my friends is awesome in her/his own way.
  • Sherlock Scan: When flying, I pick up on EVERYTHING going on on the ground!
  • Super Speed: I can clear the skies in ten seconds flat. Heck, that stupid blue hedgehog wishes he could go as fast as I can! My signature move isn't called the "Sonic Rainboom" for nothing you know!
    • To put in your terms, some eggheads have estimated that my normal top speed is 2,500 miles per hour (some egghead using a calculator says that a mile in less than a second), and after causing a Sonic Rainboom, I go double that.
  • Super Strength: I'm certainly not in Applejack or Big Macintosh's league, but I did once hold up a giant statue in Celestia's ball room that was a lot bigger than me. Okay, I admit that I couldn't hold it steady and it knocked the pillars over. Hey, it could have happened to anypony! And it's not my fault the pillars were placed there.
  • Undying Loyalty: Duh! Why do you think I'm the wielder of the Element Of Loyalty? I'll never leave anypony hang in'!
  • Vitriolic Best Friends: Applejack and I might butt heads more often than not, but most of the time it's out of friendly rivalry, and, if necessary, we wouldn't doubt to give our life for each other. And come on, I need some cool, tough pony to compete with once in a while.
  • What the Hell, Spitfire?: In "Rainbow Falls", I chewed Spitfire out for when she tried to get me to join their team by lying to one of her teammates to get a spot for me. She admitted that was a mistake.
