Voice Compare » My Little Pony » Rainbow Dash

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rainbow Dash with sound clips and images.
Rainbow Dash is a skyblue-colored pony with rainbow-colored hair.

In the Generation 3 direct-to-video features, Rainbow Dash is a shopaholic Earth pony who "always dresses in style" and liberally peppers her speech with the word "darling" (this trait is absent in her Generation 3.5 incarnation). In Friendship is Magic, Rainbow Dash is a tomboyish and athletic (if somewhat boastful and lazy) pegasus pony who dreams of joining the acrobatic flying team The Wonderbolts.

Since these are two very different personalities we're dealing with, your opinion really comes down to which version of the character you prefer. While Terzo and Cummer play their parts competently enough, like many other characters in the Generation 3 series there's really not a whole lot to their characters other than the rather one-note persona this Rainbow Dash exhibits in this series (although Terzo's resemblance to the Friendship is Magic version of Rarity is somewhat amusing). Meanwhile, Ball's Rainbow Dash has a slightly rough quality that exemplifies the character's nature as a tomboyish braggart with a slight mischievous streak quite well. My personal preferences go to Ball on this one.

Ashleigh Ball is awesome in this role. Really makes the character endearing.

Considering the character of Rainbow Dash changed so much the voices naturally changed with her. Venus was good for her Rainbow Dash and Ash for hers

Venus - Granted, her voice (and character) isn't the same as Ashleigh's, but you have to give some credit that she does a good job portraying G3 Rainbow Dash.

Anna Cummer - Her on the other hand, horrible. Just, horrible.

Ashleigh - You'll probably guess why I love her voice.

Sorry, Ashleigh ball fans. I love Venus's take on the Rainbow pony. I've seen A Charming Birthday about 10 times and she sounds beautiful!!!!!

Sorry, DARLING, but I'll stick with Ashleigh. As for the others...yeesh.

Ashleigh hands down. Granted, the others are good actresses and whatnot... BUT ASHLEIGH IS THE ONLY ONE GETS THE ONE WITH CHARACTER!!!

Can't really compare them because they're so different, but Venus does have a good voice. Anna didn't seem to characterize her character in any way--another cookie cutter "Let's have a tea party!" girl show voice. Ashleigh really provides a lot of dynamic to the character. I'd say she's my favorite.

It's not quite a fair comparison since G3 Rainbow is so different from G4.

If you grew up with G3 you're going to find G4 Rainbow's voice weird and vice versa.

@bettybunhead I agree. When people look at the MLP VCs, it's inevitable that they're going to pick the FiM voices just because it's so recent or some other reason... I grew up with G3 MLP and seeing that makes me feel sad...

Ashleigh is the best ever for her personality but Venus Terzo's voice is beautiful.

I grew up with G3, so Terzo gets my vote. The "dahling" actually gives her character. And besides, Sunny Daze is my tomboyish pony.

@The Maskeraider In that 30 second clip, she managed to say "darling" EIGHT times!
