Top Ten Reasons Why Buttercup is Better Than Rainbow Dash

TwilightKitsune
I dedicate this to the person who gave me this idea and my BFF on TheTopTens.

The Top Ten

1 Rainbow Dash is a ripoff of Buttercup

I used to like rainbow dash until I realized 3 years ago how awful she was. That was when I liked powerpuff girls and I realized how buttercup is better. that's when I realized rainbow dash is a ripoff buttercup.

To be honest, she kind of is, the flying fast concept is obviously taken from Buttercup, who also flies very fast. Buttercup is way faster though, she can go the speed of light while Rainbow Dash can only go the speed of sound, there is no contest here. They are also both tomboys too, so she is kind of a rip off. - AnimeDrawer

Not only that shes also a bad version of her. - TwilightKitsune

True because Buttercup flies faster than Rainbow Dash. They are both tomboys so...

2 Buttercup is not a bully

In the reboot, they turned her into a bully, she threatened to beat up a kid for not voting for Blossom. She can be a bit mean in the original series, but she didn't mean to bully the kid, she just thought what he did was weird and wanted to have fun and do what the others do. At least Buttercup apologized for that and even made amends with him. Rainbow Dash on the other hand, wanted to trade Fluttershy for a book! Why trade a being for a book? And she did not even apologize for that, what a jerk move. - AnimeDrawer

She was in the beginning, but she had character development and learns her lesson, plus in the end of the show she doesn't bully anymore. Rainbow dash never learns and just tries too hard to act cool.

She used to be but at least she learns her lesson. Dash just never does. - TwilightKitsune

Obviously rainbow is a dickhead

3 Buttercup learns her lesson

Buttercup once bullied a kid but in the end she learnt that it is wrong to bully. Rainbow Dash calls Twilight an egghead every other episode. - TwilightKitsune

Yeah, she does learn her lessons. In plenty of episodes, she actually learns from her mistakes, like when she bullied the kid, she never bullied anyone badly ever again apart from that one time with Bubbles. - AnimeDrawer

Buttercup is a nice ad tough cutie who bullied a kid and she learned her lesson.

"What? You egghead! " - rainbow dash 2017

4 Buttercup looks out for her sisters and Rainbow Dash treats her friends like crap

Buttercup found out how to defeat monsters in the Powerpuff Girls Movie and she saved her sisters from the gangreen gang. Rainbow Dash is a fake hero who only saves people for fame, she only cares about winning and fame.

When the Gangreen Gang kidnapped her sisters, and she found out, Buttercup didn't ignore them to go out with Ace. She immediately came up to rescue them. She would never trade her sisters for an object. Plus, no matter how much troubles she has with her sisters, she would stick up to them. Rainbow Dash makes fun of Twilight and wanted to trade a friend for an object. - AnimeDrawer

Rainbow Dash is espescially mean to Fluttershy and Twilight because they are closer to her. There is a line between fondly teasing and bullying and Dash should know that. - TwilightKitsune

AGREE! - Sugarcubecorner

5 Buttercup is stronger

Buttercup can lift up much more stuff heavier than a sky scraper, awesome! She is faster than rainbow dash and also hardcore when it comes to fighting. Rainbow Dash can't even lift heavy stuff, she easily gets injured unlike buttercup, she can't fight, and she is a bit slower than rainbow dash, lets see who is stronger and that is buttercup. Watch the mugen battle buttercup vs rainbow dash on YouTube. You will know who will win.

Buttercup is tough stuff and Rainbow Dash is a whiny bragger. Why do people like her for being a jerk? - TwilightKitsune

Buttercup can lift up Mount Everest, enough said. What can Rainbow Dash lift up? A light weight chair? Lol! Rainbow Dash would easily injure herself if she was to be put in Buttercup's shoes. Buttercup lifted Mount Everest with no problem at all and no injury, and when she crashes, she can get up. When RD crashed in an episode, she easily got hurt. Proves my theory that Buttercup is stronger. - AnimeDrawer

Bruh rainbow is really weak.One time she hit a tree and got knocked out. I remember one time when I got rammed by a big guy or getting hit by pole.But did I get knocked out? Hell nah.Nice job rainbow dash I hope your reputation goes down

6 Rainbow Dash is egoistical

Said by someone else on the Reasons to hate Rainbow Dash list:
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. - TwilightKitsune

Buttercup may be proud of herself now and then, but she doesn't constantly shove it in people's faces like RD does. Buttercup never bragged about lifting up Mount Everest, which is what any human being would be proud to do or crashing and being able to get up. Rainbow Dash, even if she does something not-so-extroardinary, would brag about it and shove it on everyone's faces. - AnimeDrawer

7 Rainbow Dash is a bad influence

I am the girl from the list of reasons why spitfire is better than rainbow dash who is your friend, plus I'm also the one who gave you the idea for your new list in the reasons why twilight sparkle is better than rainbow dash. Thanks for dedicating this list to me, hopefully you get more followers and make a no more rainbow dash club.

Rainbow Dash teaches you that it is okay to trade a being for an object, not cool. She teaches you to be boastful about everything and treat your friends like garbage, not a good role model. While Buttercup teaches you to learn life lessons, like standing up for who you love, and not getting hurt by what anyone says. Buttercup is a way better role model than that Rainbow Fart. - AnimeDrawer

If she's a tomboy why is she all about rainbows and such? Just saying. - mayamanga

8 Buttercup can accept defeat but Rainbow Dash gets upset if she loses

When the rowdyruff boys defeated her, buttercup did not complain about how she is the best, she just accepted the fact that she can't always win. However, Rainbow dash acts like a baby when she loses.

In one episode Buttercup was fighting a monster and she was beaten, she accepted it. But when Applejack defeated Dash in the Iron Pony comp., Dash was acting like Caillou. - TwilightKitsune

Buttercup does not like losing, but she does not stay there and complain if she does not win. She continues her way through until she wins. Basically Boys Back In Town says it all about how she doesn't give up, even when she is about to lose. Rainbow Dash complains about not winning, just like she did in the episode where she had a contest with Applejeck. - AnimeDrawer

9 Buttercup makes her own show more interesting, Rainbow Dash doesn't

Buttercup makes me want to watch the show PPG more, she is so hilarious and always does something so interesting. - AnimeDrawer

Rainbow Dash is the reason MLP gets hate - TwilightKitsune

Rainbow Dash is the reason why I hate MLP! - ChatNoirFan18

Buttercup is an interesting and cool character,Dash is just any old character.TwilightKitsune,I want to be friends with you. -Applejack fan

10 Buttercup is a better singer

Buttercup can actually make decent songs, Love Makes The World Go Round is decent, and she can sing good, she sang better than Bubbles and Blossom in that song. And her songs in See Me, Feel Me, Gnome, are good too, and her singing is incredible. I love her voice just as much as Tom DeLonge. Rainbow Dash on the other hand, cannot make songs as good as Buttercup and Tom DeLonge, her songs are terrible and annoying with egotistical lyrics and her voice is annoying. - AnimeDrawer

Meanwhile Rainbow Dash in her song As Awesome As I Wanna Be, she sang horribly with a more annoying voice than Justin Bieber. The song had no meaning compared to Love Makes The World Go Round and the other ponies songs. Even the other ponies hated Rainbow Dashs song. The other ponies other than rainbow dash have better singing and songs. Her song was meaning less, all about bragging and how awesome she is.

Buttercup should become the number 1 idol singer, she is best singer not dash. I bet buttercup would be better than Justin Bieber or iggy azalea. Rainbow dash would be jealous.

Well, she used to be because in the new series her voice makes my ears bleed. - AnimeDrawer

She looks like a doll. She is cute. I like Buttercup - ChatNoirFan18

Yes she is CUUUTE - mayamanga

12 Buttercup is an actual tomboy

I think Applejack is real tomboy in the Mane Six. So Rainbow Dash dresses up for gala and spa and do about rainbow... Rainbow Dash is fake tomboy. She wear sunglasses but it not real tomboy! I think Buttercup is grumpy because they gave her a very girly name same as flower. - David39

Rainbow dash goes to the spa, dresses up for the gala, is all about rainbows, and when she screams her scream is girly and applejacks is more deep. I think applejack is the tomboy in the mane six.

I agree with all of that, which makes me believe that Rainbow Dash is not a real tomboy. - AnimeDrawer

At least buttercup does not try too hard to be cool, and she was born grumpy because they gave her a girly name.

Rainbow Dash is a fake tomboy because she tries too hard to be cool, especially when she wears sunglasses and a cap, oh yeah how awesome, lame!

13 Buttercup is funnier than Rainbow Dash

Buttercup was funny when she lost her blanket and much more, she made me laugh multiple times. With rainbow dash I laughed 0 times, she thinks making ugly faces would be funny.

The "so awesome" thing and the "20% cooler" thing are the definition of unfunny - mayamanga

Buttercup is funny, she made jokes about straight guys and hid "that thing" in the Professor's pocket. She made me laugh multiple times, like when she shut the door after the Lucky Captain Rabbit King cosplayer asked her where his twin brother was. RD never made me laugh with her stupid jokes. - AnimeDrawer

Buttercup when She lost Her blanket reminded me of Max from CrizRaging when he raged when he was Roasted by PewDiePie.

14 Buttercup fans are nicer than Rainbow Dash fans

No offense to Dash fans, but some of you are kind of rude because you keep sending death threats and rude stuff to Dash haters. I think Buttercup fans are nicer cause they don't send death threats, but some fans could be like that. But not all Dash fans are bad, but most of the ones I met were rude.

They send hate mails and death threats to people who don't like Rainbow Dash. I'm a fan of RD but I respect other opinions and NEVER sent any death threats. Those fans shouldn't be protective of Rainbow Dash, she is just a cartoon character. - Chromium

I think Buttercup fans are more much nicer than Dash Rainbow fans, they rarely sent death threats. So most Buttercups fans are nice. Rainbow Dash fans are idiot and bully, and mean! - David39

I agree that Buttercup fans are much nicer,Rainbow's mean fans and how Crash(Dash)and her fans made other ponies look bad so she could look good is the reasons why I dislike Rainbow Dash.Oh,and how she bullies too. -ApplejackFan

I agree, Buttercup fans are so supportive of their favorite character and rarely send death threats, most Buttercup fans I met are nice. Meanwhile, not all Rainbow Dash fans are bad, in fact some are nice, but I had bad experience with some of her fans, they were very mean. - AnimeDrawer

15 Buttercup cares about people, Rainbow Dash only cares about winning and fame
16 Rainbow Dash looks like a clown

With all the colors she has yes. Her hair is ugly, very circus and clownish looking. She only looks okay with a dress and a makeover, otherwise, she is not a natural beauty, her eye color is possibly the ugliest shade of magenta. Plus she makes very ugly faces. Buttercup is pretty, she looks like a chibi, she doesn't need a makeover to be pretty, buttercup has the most beautiful green eyes.

Can't stop laughing! - MLPFan

RD looks like lesbian - ChatNoirFan18

She has the colours of a gay clown. She should join the circus. - TwilightKitsune

17 Rainbow Dash slapped Applejack

I want to slap Rainbow Dash - TwilightKitsune

Is this a friend?! Slapping your friend is a bully, not loyalty! - ChatNoirFan18

I think it is kind of understandable and justifiable since Rainbow Dash and Applejack are friendly rivals and love to get on each other’s nerves a lot.

18 Rainbow Dash trips people, Buttercup doesn't

Rainbow Dash TRIPPED Fluttershy in Rainbow Rocks with no shame. If Buttercup tripped someone, she'd apologize instantly.

I agree with you Twilight Kitsune, also at least Buttercup is apologetic and says sorry a lot, Rainbow Dash barely apologizes and can't admit she did something wrong.

19 Rainbow Dash wanted to trade Fluttershy for a book, something Buttercup wouldn't do
20 Rainbow Dash cheats

She is not loyal AT ALL. She cheated by using her wings. Go and watch for yourself. She also slapped Applejack and I feel like slapping Dash so she can feel the pain and anguish she inflicts on others. - TwilightKitsune

21 Rainbow Dash complains way too much, yet Buttercup barely complains

She whines over loosing the Iron Pony competition. She whines over Fluttershy's natural fear. She whines over being second place. Just grow up you stupid filly - TwilightKitsune

Um,I think Buttercup does complain,but it's only few times. -Applejack fan

Yep, that's why it says rarely, meaning that she complained a few times, not never, but Rainbow Dash complains more though. - AnimeDrawer

22 Buttercup is not annoying

She's cute because she thinks that she isn't but she is - mayamanga

Buttercup has a cute voice and she doesn't do things that annoy me, they make me laugh instead. Rainbow Dash however is annoying with her bragging, especially with her 20% cooler meme.

Rainbow Dash is not annoying neither - RB-Number1-fan

23 Rainbow Dash never shuts up

Buttercup should tell her to do it.

Shut up you stupid Rainbow Dash else, I will kill you!

*pretends to be RD* OMIGASH LOOKS AT ME I CAN DO A SHAWNIC WAMEBOOM! - TwilightKitsune

24 Buttercup doesn't brag as much as Rainbow Dash
25 Buttercup is not a camper like Rainbow Dash

Buttercup is a savage like Max in CrizRaging

26 Rainbow Dash is takes her friends for granted

She would take anything and trade it with one of her friends, not loyal at all.

She only uses them for fame.

27 Rainbow Dash is selfish

Merry Christmas,Twilight Kitsune.

28 Rainbow Dash wants to be the new Buttercup and steal her fame

She is but she can't and you know why? Because Rainbow Dash is super whiny and annoying and brags a lot. Buttercup is cool and strong and opposite of rainbow dash.

29 Buttercup is more loyal than Rainbow Dash

Buttercup never left her sisters doing the work while she does nothing, she stands up to them and never leaves them there. Rainbow dash barely has been loyal, most of the time she is not even loyal.

Buttercup is the one who literally does almost the whole entire fight. At least Blossom is grateful to her, but Bubbles does not even thank her. But I still like all ppg though.

30 Buttercup isn't overrated or annoying like Rainbow Dash

Buttercup deserves more fans than Dash. I feel sorry for buttercup because she gets mistreated, one of the reasons why she bullies, and people hate her for that. Dash gets treated so well, yet she bullies for no reason, yet people like her for that. that's messed up.

If I could go to Equestria, I would take a few mp3 players with collections Of Justin Bieber's baby(both in the real song and on the remixes) In 48 hours loop versions and It will say 'Baby Baby Baby Oooh' all the time. I will give it to Diamond Tiara&Silver Spoon for being snobs, and every other villain in MLP. And like What I'm trying to say, I will give one for Rainbow Dash because she's annoying and she gets too much attention. No offense - MLPFan

31 Rainbow Dash is the reason people hate Buttercup

They forgot how good buttercup was and moved on to rainbow dash, the good thing is that there is a 2016 ppg reboot and buttercup will come back. If the show is good, people will realize how buttercup is so much better.

32 Buttercup looks better than Rainbow Dash

Buttercup is cute, she has the most beautiful green eyes, and I like her jet black hair, green and black are an awesome combination. Rainbow dash looks like a clown with all the colors she has, she is ugly and has ugly hair.

Buttercup is adorable, as I mentioned before, RD looks like a clown fused with an alienated horse - mayamanga

Buttercup looks like a chibi <3 - ChatNoirFan18

33 Buttercup is faster than Rainbow Dash

Buttercup went so fast that she went to the future, rainbow dash is slower. Buttercup would beat dash in a race.

Buttercup is super faster, stronger, and better than RD! Go Buttercup! - ChatNoirFan18

34 Buttercup does not think she is the greatest thing ever
35 Buttercup apologizes to those she bullies, Rainbow Dash doesn't

And people say Rainbow Dash is nicer than Buttercup just because she is less aggresive. At least Buttercup apologizes to those she bullies, but Rainbow Dash doesn't even apologize to Fluttershy for bullying her, which means she doesn't even care.

36 She's a hypocrite

If she's all about loyalty, then why did she b____ slap Apple Jack? - mayamanga
