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

yes she actually taught me how to be a better friend and how to listen more - BlackberryoftheRainWings

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

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

I think that is a great way to get the hang of this place and get a few things done in the past week but the only reason why it’s been a while and they never get to get the fun and they get to see the other guys and I know that they get the same thing as well but I think
I just wanted to let you know I get to meet you at the front of the school so I think I might get a couple of hours to come to you but you are still in the middle of the meeting and I think you need a lot of help and you are getting ready to leave early and I need you to get my stuff together and I get out of here and I get it to you and I are best friends

Well I mean why would the show make one of the mane six characters mean but remember the mean six,i think queen chrysalis teleported rainbow dash there cause either way rainbow dash is like that I don't know why I even liked dash I should have liked pinkie pie or applejack which one?

Well, there are reasons to hate Twilight, but RD has more reasons to be hated. I like both, though. - RoseWeasley

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

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


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

Are you kidding me? Twlight is better than RD because SHE CAN SING BETTER? I'm sorry but that's NO reason to hate a character. I'm saying this because I Understand people dislike RD because she can be arrogant and confident but without flaws, does she even have a personality?

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

yep this is true - BlackberryoftheRainWings

6 Twilight is not a bully

well she did yell at her friends once in MLP: The Movie, but she apoligized after they saved her and that's amazing - BlackberryoftheRainWings

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.

7 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

8 She saved Cadence and Shining Armour's wedding

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

9 Rainbow Dash made Fluttershy cry

I agree with the visitor. I like RD but not some of the things she did. - RoseWeasley

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

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.

Ik why rainbow dash would probably not let spike get the heart because she wants attention she hates being alone look it up she just doesn't like being alone and to be quit honest I hate it too so guys rainbow dash isn't as bad as u think she just wants to have fun and not be alone I mean who wouldn't and u know what idc what people say about rd and her Fans I’ll keep loving her no matter what I'm A MINI RAINBOW DASH LOL

The Contenders

11 She is more of a badass

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

definitely she kicked evils butt - BlackberryoftheRainWings

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?

12 Twilight is prettier

I do think that Twilight is prettier, but I don't think that that makes her a better pony. It's someone's personality that makes them better. I don't personally have a preference between the two. - Twivinesparkle

Twilight is cute and pretty and rainbow is ugly

No! Ugly poop!

13 Twilight is an Alicorn

So it doesn't mean twilight is better


14 Twilight is not selfish or arrogant

TwilightKitsune can you make a list of why Lisa Simpson is better than Rainbow dash? -CuteGirl2009 would be my name

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.

15 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

16 Twilight represents her element better

RD shows no loyalty at all! she left her friends to go to the Wonderbolts side during the equestria games (not the human version) and left fluttershy to train alone! shes awful - BlackberryoftheRainWings

Rainbow Dash almost never shows loyalty!

17 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

18 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

19 Rainbow Dash harassed Granny Smith
20 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

21 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

22 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!

23 Twilight is a better developed character
24 Twilight shows that she cares about her friends

@Person that said, "Who agrees? ", I do.-AnimeGirl

Who agrees?

25 Twilight saved Sunset Shimmer

So did dash in friendship games.
