The "Rainbow Dash" Theory

The colors of the rainbow (light spectrum) contains 7 colors.

Rainbow Dash's mane and tail contain only 6 colors:

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Indigo.

 

So where's violet?

Rainbow Dash's eyes are colored violet to complete the light spectrum.

(A smart move on the creator's side)

 

This also leads to her cyan-colored body to fill in the color between green/blue.

You have to knows these things to be a true Rainbow Dash fan.

 

Anypony support my theory?

Uhhh Zero, you do realize that there is violet(according to that chart you posted) in Dashie's tail in the pick you posted above, right? And I just checked, there is a small streak in her mane as well. But I think your theory is good though because these two streaks are so small that they made her eyes violet to make sure that we noticed all the colors. Edited by super muffin derpy506

Indigo colored tail, my friend.

Honestly, whenever I draw the rainbow, I just consider "indigo" purple and leave out the violet. To me, they're so similar it doesn't even matter. The eyes being that colour probably weren't a deliberate choice, but I would be impressed if it was.

I agree. I would say her eyes are actually Pink Morganite.

Gonna stop you right there because that's just completely false.

Of course there is an infinity of colors in the light spectrum, but I guess he meant we can roughly separate it in 7 colors. Edited by Blobulle

That looked like a violet streak in her tail to me.

 

As for the rest of her colouration, it's a deliberate riff on colour printing theory. In the printing industry, Three primary colours (plus black) are used to make any other colour needed. Those three primary colours are yellow, cyan, and magenta. Well, Rainbow Dash's body is cyan, and her eyes are magenta.
