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

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

She was a bit of a jerk in the original series but she's worse in the 2016 one - mayamanga

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

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

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

If Buttercup isn't human, then why does she walk on two legs like humans do? Why does she eat everything humans eat? Why does she live like a human does, but with superpowers? Why does she have human skin and hair? She is a human girl. That is why she is called a girl-AnimeDrawer85

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

When I was a kid I was bullied a lot in school becuase I was from a foreign country and I hated it. So when I used to come home from school and watch Buttercup I was happy becuase she can fight for herself. I wish I had a friend like Buttercup (and I already do, I met her on the Reasons Spitfire is better than Rainbow Dash list and this list is dedicated to her). - TwilightKitsune

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 cares about people, Rainbow Dash only cares about winning and fame

Pretty sure Dash said out loud that her friends were more important to her than winning. - moops

10 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

The Contenders

11 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

12 Buttercup is cute, Rainbow Dash is not cute

That's just your opinion, and I respect it - RB-Number1-fan

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

Yes,I do agree Buttercup is cuter than Rainbow Dash.

Yes she is CUUUTE - mayamanga

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 is an actual tomboy

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

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!

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

15 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

AnimeDrawer, I can't join TheTopTens because the annoying secret code. What should I do? How I make a secret code, give an example - ChatNoirFan18

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

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 wanted to trade Fluttershy for a book, something Buttercup wouldn't do
18 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

19 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

20 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
