Top Ten Reasons to Hate Rainbow Dash

If you're a Rainbow Dash fan? Then you better not look at this list…
The Top Ten
1 She treats her friends like crap

This! It totally infuriated me when she mocked Twilight! And that's not because Twilight is my favorite pony either. TRUE friends do not mock and talk bad about their friends behind their backs. Also, when it comes to teasing, there is a fine line between friendly banter and hurtful words that may effect people negatively. I believe Rainbow crosses that line way too often. Being confident DOES NOT mean you go around belittling others and thinking you are better than everyone. Twilight is the good role model for kids! Why do you think she is the main character? She has a lot of confidence but her other defining trait is humility. And to the person who said the maker of this list should be kicked out of the fandom for having an opinion different than yours, YOU are the one who is making an ass of yourself. If someone doesn't like a character, that is their opinion. Just agree to disagree. Yeesh!

For heck's sake, all she does is bully, mock, and be rude to her friends and treats them like garbage. Plus, she has huge anger issues. Once MLP G5 comes out, they should actually make a GOOD tomboy, and not one that hurts her friend's feelings.
"She's flawed. So what? They all have flaws. Doesn't make her a bad pony. It's what makes her more three-dimensional."
Excuse me? Yes, we all know everypony on the show has flaws. But treating her friends like that is just out of control bullying.
"She's just joking around with them. She's a great friend."
A great FRIEND?! If she points out their flaws, calls them names, screams in her friend's faces, calls Twilight an egghead, and much more, you think that's a nice joke? Teasing can become bullying, you know.
Anyway, I think RD is a terrible character and should be removed from the show before children use her as a role model.

Look who's calling who a whiny cry baby. LOL! You can't seem to accept the fact that some of us don't care for a stupid cartoon pony. Also, I'm poking fun at you right now. But you don't like it, do you? See what I mean? It's always so pathetic when fans feel the need to call people who don't like the same things they like derogatory names. A very WEAK way to argue. Oh and one more thing, have you ever run on a championship cross country team? Have you ever fallen off a horse only to get right back on? Have you, at only 12 years old, found a loved one dead in your own house? Have you had surgery while you were wide awake on the operating table? Have you ever been hunting before? It's so hilarious you call me a pansy. Couldn't be further from the truth.

Wow, RD fans are so immature and naive, just like she is. They get butthurt if they see any negative comments about their favorite pony. I say being so defensive of a stupid, imaginary, cartoon character is what's wrong here. I highly doubt any of you would like someone more if you found out they had been making fun of you behind your back. I'm all for fun jokes and games. But mocking and calling people names IS NOT what true friends do. That is fact. Too many people don't know what true friendship is.

2 The soarindash shipping is terrible

I used to ship this. But I think that they are better off friends and the reasons to ship it seems as a dumb reason for a canon ship. So yes, this ship is crap. And the clopfics of this ship are worse, I can't shake the gross thoughts out of my head. I read one once by accident for a few years ago, and It will take a long time to forget about It. I rather see stuff from corpse party(when Yuka was about to die, one of her eyeballs is missing) or higurashi(Rika stabbing a knife to herself In the head) than clopfics!

I hate this ship, but I don't hate Rainbow Dash! She's actually my favorite. But I just hate this ship because:
-They don't know each other very well
-They have nothing in common except for being in the Wonderbolts and being pegasi.
-Soarin basically ignores her. A lot.
- Most importantly, I don't think of RD as someone who would like anyone.
But I love RD, so don't think she isn't my favorite.

Soarin is just some sort of sporty, but is a great pony. Rainbow Dash treats everyone like little poor small things. At all, she's the world itself (or at least in her mind)! Still no difference? Think twice.

I'm a Rainbow Dash fan and I absolutely DESPISE this ship. I generally don't approve of ships in general, unless they are very good with logical explanations as to why'd they'd be a good pairing.

3 Even though she learns her lesson she still acts like a brat

Then why has she saw so much growth over season six. You people obviously don't pay much attention, because if you noticed, you'd find that it's completely unfair. I'm an RD fan, and even though I don't mean to jump on the pity train, it seems like her and Pinkie Pie have the worst problems in the book. Pinkie is practically bipolar, and Rainbow has bullying trauma, along with anger issues and pride issues. So yes, she learns her lesson and acts like a brat. But that's not all there is to it, because she has changed. Now you can agree with me or you can not agree with me, but whatever you do, don't be a bully.

"She's perfect the way she is"

Ha! What a great joke! She is not perfect. No one is. If anything she is the one pony with the most flaws. You RD fans clearly don't understand the difference between confidence and arrogance. You feel sry for her fans that are getting bullied? Hipocrite! How about you feel sry for all the ponies RD bullies?!

She doesn't need to learn. She's perfect the way she is. You losers are just jealous of her. She'd kick you ass in 10 seconds flat.

Yup. Its true. Dash is the worst pony. And her retarded fans won't admit she is. Her name should be Rainbow Crap.

4 She has too many fans

One of her fans once said that he wanted rainbow dash to kill us haters and that we are trash who are not meant to live. Haters, this is true, go to the top ten things that should happen to rainbow dash list and you'll find it. To me it's just cruel. I know you rainbow dash fans don't like us because we don't like rainbow dash, but please one of you fans please be on my side because what that fan said was cruel. I won't disrespect your opinion I just want you to believe me. I won't hate on you for liking rainbow dash I just want one of you rainbow dash fans fighting against that because that is cyber bullying, we only said hate stuff about rainbow dash but never told you to die or something. Please one rainbow dash fan joins us to fight against that cyber bullying. We will still not like RD though we won't say cruel stuff about you.

Hey that is offensives! I am a fan of Rainbow Dash and I love my God very much! How dare you criticize my faith! YOU DO NOT KNOW ME! Yet you still make assumptions. I am actually a rather caring loving sensitive person, yet I'm still a Raimbow Dash fan. And guess why? Because she is loyal. She would give up anything to be with her friends and I respect that. Now you can say anything you want, and I will respect that as well. But if you think for one second I'm okay with even one of you guys telling me that I disrespect my God, that is not your place! Now stick to your own opinions, but do not make them offensive or superficial! Or JUST PLAIN HURTFUL!

And her fans are evil, back stabbing, opinion disrespecting cyber bullies who treated Rainbow Dash, a fictional character like a god or something! That's wrong! People with religions don't treat their favourite characters like gods!

How is stating your opinion about a character/fanbase "bullying? " That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard! Think up a better counter argument before you type, please. In the very least, try to convince us 'unbelievers' that you have a valid reason for your RD support. Good luck.

5 Her personality is terrible

She doesn't deserve loyalty! In one of the episodes, she keeps pranking everyone, and goes SO FAR Pinkie Pie gets sick and Rainbow Dash isn't sorry! She's meaner than MacKenzie Hollister from Dork Diaries sometimes!

The writers have taken one of her character traits and made it her only character trait. That is, her self-obsession.

While I do admit most of the characters have good personallitys. But rainbow dash's is horrible!

Rainbow Dash is weak and Pathetic! I could easily beat her in a fight!

6 She's egotistical

I don't hate Rainbow Dash. But it's so ironic I think it's hilarious! You RD fans are so blind. The truth of the matter is that Rainbow Dash is the most insecure pony. She's not comfortable enough in herself to just be herself. She has to act cocky all the time instead. All that ego is a facade. Have you noticed she's very concerned about her reputation too? Classic signs of insecurity. I've seen it a thousand times. Don't try to defend Dash. If anything, these hidden self-esteem problems make her one of the more relatable ponies. Maybe that is the real reason people like her, whether they realize it or not? I would love to see some character development for her in this area. Like, have Rainbow learn she is valuable as a friend not because she is talented or because she has a charismatic personality, but because she is loyal. Except the writers should be more specific and show her loyalty not as generic "I'll always be on your side" crap, but that she makes a heartfelt devotion to ...more

I totally agree. There is a BIG difference between having confidence in yourself and being an arrogant, self-important brat. Just look at any of the other Mane 6 and you'll see the difference. Twilight, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie all have a good self-esteem without being condescending towards others. Twilight in particular is confident yet very humble at the same time. SHE is a good role model for kids, not Rainbow.

Oh my God! You RD fans clearly don't know anything if you think Twilight has more ego than Rainbow. Even worse, you actually think Rainbow is 'humble.' Wow, you are confused. That is totally ass backwards! *sigh* Woe to those who call good evil and evil good.

That's the point though. She's supposed to be egotistical, that's what makes her character entertaining. That's what makes Rainbow Dash.

7 Scootaloo looks up to her

Who the heck is hating on the hate comments, yet the love comments get more likes? It should be the opposite. Screw you rainbow dash fans ( not all of them, only the ones on this list). I am hating on your comments defending a worthless pony, and liking all the hate comments. RD fans need to get a life, she is the worst cartoon character ever, I even rather watch dora than her. Not trying to bully rainbow dash fans, but you guys need to understand that this is for RD haters not lovers. How is that terrible pony more important than us people?

The first person who commented, you are being a bully. Telling someone to get a life makes you a judgemental person. And I may be judged for typing this, but I have a life. FYI, I am a very achieved person. And as for RD being a bully, the second you typed that you became a bully too. And RD isn't one. So that just leaves you. Screwing me over won't help solve anything. It may feel good for a bit, but telling all RD fans to suck it is a little overkill. It's also a little mean. She is not terrible. She is not worthless. And you have no right to judge her just like Rainbow Dash fans have no right to judge Twilight or Flutttershy fans. All this hate needs to stop. This is ridiculous. RD just has problems. Don't we all? So stop hating on the people who hate, it just makes you a hater. RD fan out.

She's a terrible role model. Being confident does not mean you go around bragging about how awesome you are and then belittle others to make yourself feel better.

She's a horrible influence on Scootaloo and the rest of her stupid fanclub. Plus, her fanclub is full of KIDS! Really? She's probably one of the worst role models for anybody EVER! Let alone KIDS!

8 She is the most unoriginal character

She has a life. She is a Wonderbolt now. And you may hate us RD fans but calling my favorite MLP character weak is a lie. AppleJack wouldn't be very proud of you right now people. She would go through Tatarus for her friends and you all know it. And she can to fight. And fact, she's got so much fight in her I believe she could be on the cover of Rachel Platten's Fight Song album. She is not a loser either. I am a butt hurt fan. I a, her butt hurt fan. But respectfully so. And I'm going to say this in the nicest way possible. Who gave you the right to judge other people? Who gave you a crown and the twi-cane and said, here go and crush all RD fans? She is not the worst in fact the only pony I believe is the truly worst is King Sombra. So stop hating each other. I think I speak for the very few rational minded RS fans when I say, this is ridiculous, okay, let's just get along. And it was very immature making this list. Dude, you're practically begging for butt hurt Rainbow Dash fans ...more

Lauren Faust literally took Firefly, and just gave her a rainbow tail, just to make her Rainbow Dash, instead of Random Blue Pinky Dash.

Rainbow dash is the worst pony! And that one user that keeps responding to my comments is nothing but a butt hurt fan!

She was based off a character from the original my little pony called "Fire fly," she is so unoriginal.

9 She's lazy

Yeah, reminds me of the girls on my cross country team who slack all day in practice but are awesome when it's time to race. Meanwhile, I'm busting my butt, giving my all each day in practice.

It doesn't make sense on how she's lazy but "apparently" the fastest pony in Equestria. She's so dumb.

This is why she's best pony. Lazy ponies are awesome!

Best pony ever. Deal with it.

10 Her fans are stupid

Why are you people defending rainbow dash fans? I don't mind them being a little gay or liking her, but her fans are more mean than us haters, you should feel bad for us. We get cyber bullied just because we don't like rainbow dash and the fans wish us to die. You guys don't realize that we get cyber bullied more painfully than them. I don't dislike the fans because they adore the pony so much, I dislike them because they bully me if I don't like rainbow dash.

I do not think all Rainbow Dash fans are bad, some of them are very nice like RiverClanRocks. I don't mind innocent people who just enjoy liking her. But some of her fans are really rude and wish death to anyone who dislikes her and would be glad if that happens. But like I said, not all Rainbow Dash fans are mean. Every fandom has nice and rude people, that's the truth.

Her fans are a bunch of idiots that clip to porn photos of her. Why do they even like her? I know people have opinions, but in my opinion, Rainbow dash is rude, nasty, and very overrated.

First of all, you guys are being rude and offensive. I am not stupid, I happen to be in my gifted program, and I do not own porn of Rainbow. If you guys are going to jump to conclusions about Rainbow Dash fans, at least make them PG13 and appropriate! I may need glasses but I'm not blind and and anal. At least I don't think I am... �"

The Contenders
11 Lack of loyalty

She is joking around. And yes she knows that her friends can take it. If they couldn't she would stop because she would stick with them through thick and thin! She deserves her element. She is as loyal as they come and she deserves a place in the Elements! She never jokes with Fluttershy because she knows better! If that's not being nice and sparing a good laugh for some pony else's feelings I don't know what is! And yes she has her moments. But most of the other characters never have those moments. Therefore they don't have to grow a shell, or be tough. Or defend little ponies named Fluttershy. They can sail through life without being bullied. Or called names. Or traumatized. So cut her a break! I know you don't want Rainbow enthusiast commenting, but for God's sake give her a break! I believe she has had to go through a lot! SO CUT IT OUT!

"You don't be nice to be loyal"

Dictionary definition of loyal: Having or showing complete and constant support for someone or something. Some antonyms of loyal: dishonest, false, fickle, faithless. You don't know the first thing about loyalty if you think kindness is not involved.

Hello! Wake up people! Mocking and badmouthing someone behind their back IS NOT being loyal! Oh, but she doesn't just stop there. Rainbow insults her friends right in front of them! God these writers are idiots!

Her element is loyalty but she brags about being cool how shes the best pony, she shouts at her friends and bullys them nearly all the time and shes a cheater when her and Applejack were competing to see which pony was the most athletic Dash used her wings to cheat in nearly every task even Applejack said Dash cheated I mean call that loyalty! To me shes a weaking dying to get noticed all the time. Silly Rainbow dash!

12 She's rude to Fluttershy in Rainbow Rocks

She laughs at Fluttershy, and even TRIPS her in the stupid and vain song called "Awesome As I Wanna Be" in fact, if it weren't for Rainbow Dash, Rainbow Rocks would be the best movie ever!

I know right? "As Awesome As I Wanna Be" is the worst song ever, the lyrics are basically just bragging and Rainbow Dash can't sing. I agree with the comment below.

She is rude to all of her friends!

Do no be rude to Fluttershy or Else...

13 She always wins and gets things her way

I like her when she actually gets some Humility. But then BAM its gone, and she never gets in trouble its just (From the running of the leaves) " We were bad sports..." Applejack said this... NO you knew she cheated in the first game and she also kept cheating. RD tossed off her fault onto Applejack! I do like her but most of the time, but uhg... She needs to keep that humility! Directors, Writers, and animators. Give. Her. HUMILITY! I want her to NOT cheat. Be ACTUALLY Loyal. Just... Let her not be a jerk most of the time

She should not always win, no matter how God she is. I am a fan but I realize how much she's missing out on learning.

I wish she can loose in some competition so she can realize that she can't always win.

I am a Rainbow fan, and agree that this is totally unfair.

14 She's overrated

Wow. You guys are bundles of joy. She does not bully. She just calls them like she sees them. As if producers would make o e of the main characters Abdullah. Even implying that is kind of insulting the producers. That's completely offensive. She makes fun of them jokingly. And all the episodes where she was mean we're made by Merriweater girl person, and she doesn't really get Rainbow's character at all! Without the Mare-do-Well episode and Tanks for the memories, would you hate her nearly as much? She values friends above all else her element is flipping loyalty! Go make this argument elsewhere because it's a hay bale full of lies. Just so you know, AJ would be ashamed of you.

I asked some kids who their favorite pony was, and they all replied, "Rainbow Dash! ". I asked them why they liked her, and they replied "Because she's awesome! " And "'Cause she's a tomboy! And tomboys are awesome! " Kids, you guys are crazy! Rainbow Dash bullies people, makes fun of them, and cares about winning more than friendship. Not to mention her brashness and her humongous ego. People think that just because she's a blue pony with super speed and rainbow colored hair that she's best pony! YOUU RD LOVERS ARE SO CLUELESS!

Oh my gosh yes

15 She doesn't listen

Where is her ears?

Even to twilight sparkle and pinkie pie also fluttershy and applejack rarity too

16 Her weird annoying voice

It's so raspy and annoying.

17 She is extremely annoying

Yes I agree. When I first watched the show, she wasn't that bad to me, but by the time we got to the episode Tanks For The Memories, I couldn't stand her any longer. She turned from a sort of interesting character to a annoying as heck crybaby in that episode. Thank you episode, for making me hate Dash.

18 She complains about how she is the best if she doesn't win

She needs this for pride. Her ego is actually very delicate, and she is actually very insecure, but that does not mean that you hate. Just try to understand.

Yeah, she REALLY needs to learn how to lose gracefully. And not just for one episode.

Agreed! She will complain that the opponent cheated when really she did!

19 She thinks it's all about her

If she thinks about herself, then why does she always save her friends when they need help? Sure she can be very snobby but at least she cares about her friends more than the wonderbolts.

She's just so annoying.

So she's egocentric.

20 She can't fight.

She's nothing without her wings, I wish we Rainbow Dash haters could cut off her wings and teach her a lesson of respect and the difference between confidence and arrogance and a lot of other things. PD: what are RD butt-hurt fans doing here?

Rainbow dash isn't even much of a fighter. Most of the time when she does fight, she uses her speed and agility. And changelings aren't even good as fighting.

That's because speed and agility are awesome. Whoever dumps on Rainbow should be more sensitive.

She can't rip off the wings of an insect. Twilight fights better. Twilight vs Derek. Most epic fight scene in MLP. It was so MLG.

21 She's a Sonic the Hedgehog ripoff

In sonic forces sonic can air boost so I count on rainbow being a sonic ripoff.And she will never he like sonic even if they cross world's

Wrong. Sonic can fly when he goes super.

22 She's fake

In the episode with the Wonderbolts or whatever. If she's so confident in herself then why does she think IMITATING her friends is going to win favors? Her personality is contradicting and not in a way that makes sense. The way she's written is horrible and her personality is 2d and overall character falls flat.

23 She's not pretty

Whoever said that tomboys weren't pretty, go get somebody to teach you how to say nice words. And adding she's not pretty to the list was a mega petty thing, whoever the hay wrote this!

I think she's hot, especially in that gala dress. She was even voted prettiest pony in that episode.

She is pretty. In fact, I love her because she is pretty back then when I was young. It is just her personality.

"I think she's hot."

Pervert! No wonder the fans are so anal. They must all be sicko furries like you!

24 She's weak

Rainbow dash actually isn't as tough as people say. I mean, look she's afraid of singing flowers. Plus in "dragon Shy" even though she kicked a dragon, she was still scared like a little girl. Also, she does she even fight that much? The others can fight to. I'm pretty sure Twilight could beat Rd in a battle.

Yes, she is weak. All that arrogance she has is the definition of weakness. If you're not strong enough to face the facts and see that you're really not that special and have flaws, you're a weakling.

This is the reason we have frying pans... to cook and to slam Rainbow Dash's face with them.

Hold up. You think Twily could beat RD. Excuse my bluntness, but would Twilight do, throw magical fancy egghead books and hope to knock RD out?

25 She's selfish

Don't blame the pony. Blame the person who wrote the storyline. Cough* Merriweather *cough * think of all the episodes where Rainbow Dash was a dick they were all written by the same person. Surprise surprise. It's not the pony you should be hating, it's what certain writers make her. She is not selfish. It's just what Merriweather makes her to be in all the episodes! Merriweather is the one you should be hating on!

Yes, yes, yes. The height of her selfishness is shown in the episode where her turtle needs to hibernate. But of course RD drags him around with her the entire episode and doesn't let him sleep because she's selfish and puts off doing what is best for him. really it's the only episode of MLP that I hate, thanks to Rainbow Dash!

She doesn't care about Tank when he needs to hibernate -Tanks for the Memories

She doesn't care about A. K. Yearling when she doesn't want to write books anymore - Daring Done?

She doesn't care about Fluttershy when she scared her - 28 Pranks Later

Totally true. She can't give up anything.
