Rainboom by fyre-flye Rainboom by fyre-flye
Sketch of Rainbow Dash for 2008 MLP:FiM pitch bible. This was one of my favorite early sketches! I was happy to see it frequently used as clip art. Note her original cutie mark. I was asked to bring in some elements of the G3 Rainbow Dash's cutie mark for legal reasons I never quite understood.

Back in the AwesomeTouverse, the reason the Sonic Rainboom never worked is because the other deviantart artists didn't watch the show and didn't know what the Rainboom was, thus their characters evaded it out of sheer ignorance of the author.

Which kind of ruined the point of Mare Do Well. Mare Do Well was always meant as an homage to Darkwing Duck, so when she said "LET'S GET DANGEROUS!" and used the Rainboom, it was supposed to be the downfall of whoever she was facing, much like when the real Darkwing says that phrase.

Silly to me. But then again, little things like this completely change the character so they probably just wanna keep stupid tradition

Am I the only one that made a massive booming sound and pretended to make a sonic rainboom after seeing this?

You know, I thought about the "legal reasons" for a bit and something occurred to me. Rainbow colored or not, there is a chance that the lightning bolt in that cutie mark design is close enough to the lightning bolt used in the Power Rangers logo or the Harry Potter logo that they decided to air on the side of caution with design.  Just a thought. I have no idea how close to being right I am.

No, she's just flying. When she flies fast enough she leaves a rainbow trail, even though she's not doing a sonic rainboom. :3
