Rainbow Dash is one of the main characters from the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls franchise.

Captain of apparently all of Canterlot High's sports teams, as well as lead guitarist for the Rainbooms. Her magic gives her Super Speed.

In the AWA fics, Rainbow is a student at the AWA Academy.

In the XP4 fics, Rainbow is part of the Heroes Coalitions as a trainee. She also attends the Vanguard Academy as a student.

Appearance

Rainbow Dash has a light-blue skintone, a moderate cerise eyes and has a multi-colored waist-length hair akin to a rainbow. She wears a short-sleeve blue jacket over a white shirt a cloud & rainbow-colored lightning symbol, white & magenta skirt over a black skintight shorts, rainbow-colored socks and blue shoes.

Personality

Rainbow Dash is very athletic and competitive. She is the captain of every sports team at Canterlot High School, and she effortlessly overtakes Twilight Sparkle in a game of one-on-one. She is also somewhat self-centered, often speaking—and sometimes singing—about her own awesomeness.

In the second film, Rainbow is conceited to the point of frequently calling the Rainbooms her band. However, she humbly steps aside for Twilight to take over lead vocals, and she lets Sunset Shimmer join the band by the end.

Rainbow Dash's strongest trait is her loyalty. She eagerly teams up with Twilight to beat Sunset in the first film, and in the third film, she gives up a victory in the Friendship Games to save Sunset's life. She also able to inspire motivation in others as demonstrated in Friendship Games' CHS Rally Song.

AWA Fanfics

Rainbow Dash has a crush on Ben Tennyson.

Abilities

Her magic gives her Super Speed. Her "ponied form" includes pegasus wings, which she immediately use to fly around from the moment of her very first transformation — with obvious glee to boot. She leaves the "rainbow trail" typical of her pony counterpart behind when flying. By Legend of Everfree, her Magical Girl form also includes crystal wings, and she can fly at Super Speed.
