Reasons Twilight Sparkle is Better Than Rainbow Dash

I dedicate this to topten user MLPFan because she hates Dash as well and loves Twilight Sparkle

The Top Ten

1 Twilight is a better role model

Oh sure! Twilight treats poor Spike like a slave! Great role model, right!

Yeah, Rainbow Dash brags too much and thinks she is awesome for doing a lame exploding rainbow.

Twilight is sensible and mature but Rainbow Dash is a stupid crybaby - TwilightKitsune

I don't really like her being described as a "crybaby" or "lame". However, I certainly agree she is NOT best pony!

2 There is no reason to hate Twilight but many to hate Dash

Why hate a character that is smart, powerful and can take on almost anything and not hate a fast blue Pegasus that treats her friends like rubbish

Hating someone because they are smart is a pathetic reason to hate. Twilight is not a mary-sue. Rainbow Dash is a bully and a jerk - TwilightKitsune

Rainbow Dash is more like mary sue to me because she thinks she is perfect, so does her fans. Plus rainbow dash wins almost everything.

Twilight haters looks similar like Blossom haters from Ppg. Their reasons are illogical. Hating cartoon characters just because he/she smart is a stupid reason - ChatNoirFan18

3 Twilight is kind to her friends

Rainbow Dash made fluttershy cry and was ungrateful to rarity and mean to applejack and is even worse than diamond tiara - TwilightKitsune

I agree that Twilight is better - bobbythebrony

Also how she runs away from pinkie pie when she wants to talk to her. Also how she puts AJ bed outside in the pigpen that's just so mean that's not a prank if she's the only one laughing

4 Twilight is smarter than her

If rainbow and twilight clash at one another, twilight would have the advantage in intelligence and in brute power due to her magic and studying and it would end in one of those batman vs superman brawls were the smarter one will always find ways to take down their foe.

Twilight can react smartly to a situation but Dash will just explode - TwilightKitsune

Out of curiosity, who is smarter is it Twilight, Iron man, Batman or Hank Pym
Just wondering. In my opinion, Tony is the smartest of them all in this brain brawl!

5 Twilight can sing better

Rainbow Dash can't sing at all, even nicki minaj and iggy azalea are better. As awesome as I wanna be is the worst and most annoying song ever, it makes baby by Justin Bieber look like a masterpiece.

She is the best singer after all

I love Rebecca Shoichet's voice in the movies she is great. Ashleigh Bell is not a good singer no offense I really like you Ashleigh - TwilightKitsune

6 Twilight is an original character

Dash is a ripoff of Buttercup and is based off firefly - TwilightKitsune

Twilight Kitsune, I think you should make Top Ten Reasons Why Buttercup Is Better Than Rainbow Dash if you want to. Just giving you an idea for your new list. Plus your one of the best and my favorite top tenner.

You can see it G1 Twilight it was original charachter. - David39

This is so true there no charecter like twi shes so cool Rainbow Dash is just a bad rip off of Buttercup

7 Twilight is not a bully

Rainbow Dash is a bully to Fluttershy and treats her like a doormat and see the crystal empire part two if you want evidence - TwilightKitsune

In like every episode Rainbow Dash is rude in someway, but like she's a tomboy, but it still doesn't mean that she has to be rude. Like it's such a stereotype! This is why Mlp is dead because of all of the bronies who defend her for her actions.

8 She saved Cadence and Shining Armour's wedding

Even though no one beleived her she loyally went on for her brother. - TwilightKitsune

9 Twilight is prettier

Twilight is cute and pretty and rainbow is ugly

No! Ugly poop!

10 Let Spike take the crystal heart

Twilight let Spike get a chance to enjoy how being a hero is. And As for Rainbow Dash, to be honest, She wouldn't let anyone else get a chance to enjoy the popularity because she always get the attention. - MLPFan

It should have been her but she cared about the crystal empire more than herself - TwilightKitsune

Twilight let spike take the heart so he could try to do something for once but rainbow dash would have done it herself so she could be the hero.

The Contenders

11 She is more of a badass

She was really badass when she was fighting Princess Luna. - TwilightKitsune

She's so badass Rainbow dash could never beat her in a fight and I'm saying even without her magic she could kick dashs ass

Then why does she keep getting rekt by Starlight Glimmer?

When she fought the imposing red bull and all of the princesses transferred their power to her because the bull is not aware of a fourth princess, that battle was lit! =^~^=

12 Rainbow Dash made Fluttershy cry

To be fair all of the mane six ( I repeat all have made at least one other character cry, so yeah)

Fluttershy shy made Rainbow Dash cry too

How dare she make fluttershy (best pony) cry! TS is 10 times better

She made rainbow cry too but I guess she teached rainbow dash how it feels so I don’t feel bad for RD but I feel bad for FS

13 Twilight is an Alicorn

So it doesn't mean twilight is better

14 Rainbow Dash harassed Granny Smith
15 Twilight defeated Tirek

All the mane 6 defeated Tirek. Including Rainbow Dash.

She's awesome Rainbow would get her butt kicked against tirek even WITH all the alicorn magic

16 Twilight doesn't hurt other's feelings

She's my faverate character but she hurted Moondincer's feelings she even ruined 2 years of her life! but she apologize and that what I loved. - Arah2004

17 Twilight represents her element better

Rainbow Dash almost never shows loyalty!

18 Rainbow Dash called her an egghead

It's just a playful nickname.

Yeah if I was her I would have lost it and told her to act her age and sent her off but Twilight held it in. - TwilightKitsune

If I was there I would have best the crap out of Rainbow for doing that

This is just another reason why I want rainbow was to be kicked by twi

19 Twilight is not selfish or arrogant

Twilight wanted all her friends to go to the grand galloping Gala and even thought of forfeiting her own ticket. - TwilightKitsune

Rainbow Dash is so arrogant just check out her song as awesome as I wanna be, it is the worst song ever and the lyrics are meaningful.

Rainbow Dash's biggest fault.

Rainbow Dash is a bitch but not Twilight who is princess something dash will never be

20 Twilight is a better developed character
21 Twilight's fanbase isn't as annoying as Rainbow Dash's

Well most RD fans are mean and idiots, they mostly sent deaths threat to them... - David39

Yes finnally who agrees Rainbow Dash has a cancerous fandom

Seriously, RiverClanRocks(a TopTenner here) and YumSoda(a famous pony YouTuber) are the only nice RD fans. Every other RD fan are very mean bullies to others and they hate anyone who hates Rainbow Dash. They even made MLP Fanfics and they made a Dash Hater's(by the way, the one being mean is them. The Dash hater just wanted to share her opinion) OC as the bad girl who always bullies Rainbow and their OC. It's annoying and they really need to learn that everyone has a chance to share their opinion If they like It or not. - MLPFan

22 Twilight is cuter


In Equestria and the human world she makes the most kawai faces she's app much cuter than the rest of the main 6 Including fluttershy

23 Rainbow dash is mean to scotaloo

Yes it's kinda true because when she fell of the waterfall and rainbow saved her she screamed at her saying "WHAT DO U THIINK YOUR DOING OUT HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT! " I MEAN SHUSH AND LET SCOOTALOO EXPLAIN don't YELL!

24 Twilight saved Sunset Shimmer

So did dash in friendship games.

25 Twilight is better with foals
26 Twilight is gentle to anyone nice
27 When Rainbow Dash loses something, she whines
