Headstrong tomboy with rainbow-coloured hair, a tough act and is completely loyal and trustworthy?
Rainbow Dash is
I personally have plenty of ego and arrogance, too. It's not a bad thing in itself.
Arrogance is another type of pride and confidence in one's self.
Being confident means you are more assured of yourself. IN COMPARISON TO SOMETHING ELSE.
Hence, it can be described as arrogance.
- a Showoff
Granted, one of the most annoying traits of arrogant people.
However, what's wrong with showing off what you can do?
That being said, Rainbow Dash is not distinctly brash about showing off and it's just an on-site thing for her, it seems.
Are there that many instances where Rainbow Dash is showing off out of turn?
- a tomboy
I'm androgynous and find this worth the point.
I don't like RD much either, welcome to the club! I think she's mean too, I can't stand arrogant people...I may joke about it but I hate people who are truly self-centered like she is. Yet, I value loyalty...but her loyalty is showcased in the least flattering way possible.
Her trait of friendship most obvious amongst the rest.
Sorry, this will be rude, Bluebell.
You're being a tad bit(no, quite) hypocritical.
You declare hate for something you can't stand yourself.
You claim arrogance as something intolerable to you.
Such are worthy of the words "truly self-centered".
Rainbow Dash, unlike you, has her focus set on her dreams, rather than using as a means to deny things she doesn't like.
She has proven, at the Wonderbolt Academy, that she cares more for her friends than her own personal dreams, too.
She is, by far, MUCH LESS self-centered than what you make out and what you are in that post I quoted above, Bluebell.
I hold no grudge or dislike against you, Bluebell, but I will defend Rainbow Dash in this manner.
Rainbow Dash has many other traits, but I will only list these few.*
We are all hypocrites to some extent.
Some more than others at times.
If you guys don't like her for her flaws, then I've to say, you don't quite get the point of liking anypony at all.
You don't take the good because it outweighs the bad.
You take the bad because it's what makes the good. (a bit cheesy, but you get the point)
