My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Rainbow Dash is a female Pegasus and one of the main characters in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is responsible for maintaining the weather and clearing the skies in Ponyville. As a huge fan of The Wonderbolts, she dreams of one day joining their elite flying group. Rainbow Dash has a pet tortoise named Tank. She represents the Element of Loyalty.
In M.U.G.E.N, Several creators have made Rainbow Dash all varying in terms of quality and gameplay.
The 1st version of Rainbow Dash was created, and the first My little Pony character to appear in Mugen. It was made by a YouTuber called Butthenidied. Her sprites are screenshots taken from Pony Creator, but edited to fit whatever action the character is doing. It is considered to be of a relatively poor quality, and is said to be the worst version available. It also strangley has Homer as her portrait.
The YouTuber RockRage8962 made edits to Butthenidied's version including new palettes, sprites for missing animations, added missing CLSN-boxes, a new portrait image, cleaned up sprites, and a fixed intro. While these edits fix a few of the problems of the original it still has bugs that weren't ironed out.
Pingurules' Rainbow Dash editEdit
Pingurules edited an early beta of RockRage8962's edits of Butthenidied's Rainbow Dash. She has 3 new hypers added in, as well as modifying a few of her moves. While it's better then the first version of Rainbow Dash it is still far from perfect.
RockRage8962's and IDGCaptainRussia's VersionEdit
RockRage8962 created his own version of Rainbow Dash along with his friend IDGCaptainRussia which was intended to be better than Butthenidied's version (as well as the edits RockRage made to Butthenidied's version). IDGCaptainRussia was responsible for most of the coding and ideas. This version uses sprites from the defunct mmorpg mlp online (made by urimas on deviantart). This version has been accepted the best out of all the other versions although it still has a few issues that need to be fixed. Along with that, RockRage8962 announced he will be making one with sprites taken from videos of the now shut down Fighting is Magic. This Rainbow Dash has the infamous Brutal AI that a few other characters have and as such had been mistaken as being a cheap character by a few people.
A Youtuber called SoGGy made an anthropmorphic version of Rainbow Dash using custom sprites and new moves. It is unknown if SoGGy is still working on his version of Rainbow Dash as no new content has been mentioned as of last year.
PabloSSB is also working on a Rainbow Dash character using custom sprites based on the ones seen in the now shut down Fighting is Magic and original coding. He has released a beta version, but it is an unfinished Kung Fu Man edit with some MvC things thrown in.
Captain Russia's EditEdit
The YouTuber IDGCaptainRussia made an edit of RockRage8692's edit's of Butthenidied's Rainbow Dash known as Chromo Dash (Rainbow Dash XL, RDXL), it was intended to be better but ended up being a cheap character due to several invincibility frames, like many of Captain Russia's characters it is only a wip and has not been released yet.
The YouTuber HedgehogMac made a Rainbow dash that was edited from Guile, it's sprites are adapted from RockRage8962's Edit and the 'Fighting is Magic' rainbow dash videos.
He updated Rainbow Dash, it's now version 0.8 with a new hyper, some more sprites to replace some of the Pony Maker ones, and a win screen, though the text is in Spanish.

- Buttthenidied's Version was commonly used as a base for other MLP characters, even RockRage8962's and IDGCaptainRussia's Version was edited from Buttthenidied's Version.
- PabloSSB's Rainbow Dash has a special intro and win pose against RockRage8962's characters and Butthenidied's characters and a win pose against a few Mario and Luigi characters, but due to the incomplete nature of this version the special win poses don't trigger.
- Butthenidied's and SoGGy's Rainbow Dash's have cameo's in RockRage8962's Rainbow Dash. Butthenidied's Rainbow Dash is seen standing ready to battle when RockRage8962's version comes from behind and bucks her out of the battle. SoGGy's version is seen standing when she says "It needs to be about 20% cooler" and a mushroom from Super Mario Bros. falls from above and causes SoGGy's version to grow into RockRage8962's version.
- Rainbow Dash's Human form from Equestria Girls has a cameo in one of RockRage8962 and Captain Russia's Rainbow Dash's win poses where Rainbow Dash stares into the background and a pedestal falls to the ground followed by a statue of Human Rainbow Dash that lands on top of the pedestal.
- Rainbow Dash's human form also appears as Midnight Bliss compatibility in said Rainbow Dash.
