Rainbow Dash is one of the series's "Mane" characters, having appeared since the first episode. She is a professional athlete from Cloudsdale that is infatuated with the Wonderbolts, and the bearer of the Element of Loyalty.
Main Rage costs 100% Rage.
On rage activation, Rainbow Dash will silence the player and disable nearby sentries.
Any midair attack of Rainbow Dash is turned into a powerful matrix attack, killing any player hit.
Superjump is your special movement option.
Upon holding secondary attack (mouse2 by default) or crouch (c by default), a bar on your screen will charge up to 100% (Although it is adviced to use your secondary attack instead of your crouch, since using your crouch makes you an easy target for spies). To activate your superjump, look up and release your secondary attack at the same time, afte wich you will jump very high. You can release your secondary attack at any point during this charge, with 20% being the minimum and the lowest jump, while 100% gives you the most jump height.
After every superjump, you have to wait 5 seconds before you can use it again.
Also, there is something called a "super duper jump". This is a special superjump that can only be activated in certain conditions, like being stuck in the volcano on vsh_volcano. Upon holding your secondary attack, a red "super duper jump is ready" will flash on your screen, wich, when released, will give you a massive jump height.

Battling as Rainbow Dash
Strenghts: Due to your speed, increased jump height, triple jump and superjump, you are the single fastest and most mobile hale. Use this to your advantage: You can outrun any class, save for a scout under the crit-a-cola's effects, meaning that you can catch-up to any fleeing target, circle-strafing minigun-heavies and sentries... as well as running away from them (when a medic ubers, for example). Your triple-jump allows you to dodge the majority of explosive spam when airborne, messing up a player's aim by moving erratically, as well as making it easier to goomba players. Lastly, if you have a basic mastery of air control, your superjump combined with your 2 extra air-jumps allow you to move in very strange ways, confusing players and potentially catching them off guard.
Weaknesses: On the other hand, as a balance for your mobility, your melee swings are, while the fastest, also the weakest of all hits, only doing about 140-160 damage (To put this in perspective, a normal hale hits for 210 damgage, instantly killing any (even fully overhealed) 125hp class, while your hits may not even one hit kill a 150hp medic, allowing them to run or pop their uber.). Your damage against buildings is even more pathetic, usually taking lore than 5 hits to destroy a level-3 sentry. On top of that, you are also easily knocked around by sentries and minigun-heavies if they can lock onto you, explosive spam and critical projectiles. Snipers, if experienced, can easily take all your momentum away if you superjump, halting you in mid-air.
Major threats: Sentries and medigun-medics with the quickfix in particular will be your biggest threats.
-Sentries build in open, elevated places can usually lock onto you before you can reach it. If it does, you will be pushed back immensly if it's a level-2 or higher, sometimes even flinging you to the other end of the map. Often times, if you do manage to reach the sentry, the engineer who build it may whip out his wrangler, turning the sentry into a tank that, if you want to take it down even when wrangled, can eat up a lot of your hp. Thus, remember that sentries are automatically destroyed when their engineer dies, and go for the engie instead.
-Medi-gun medics are your second biggest threat, not because of their ubers from wich you can easily flee, but because of their ability to overheal. Even 125hp classes, wich you can normally kill in a single hit, can survive that hit and flee if fully overhealed. Quickfixes are even more of a menace, due to the massive overheal they can provide, making 125hp classes survive 2 or even 3 hits. If you get into combat with a KGB actively being healed and overhealed by a medic, don't even bother going for the heavy (not even a goomba, fully overhealed kgbs will survive a single goomba with a 100hp left, easily refilled by their medics), but go for the medic instead. If the medic ubers with a normal medigun, simply stay out of reach until it wears off, then go in for the kill. If the medic ubers with the quickfix, he will still die (if not overhealed himself) in 1-2 hits. As for a vaccinator medic, just watch out wich resistance he is currently on, as only bullet-ubers can protect him.
Medium threats: Posing a bit less threat than the above, but still worth watching out for, are Heavies (both kinds), Pyros, Spies, Mad-milk Scouts and Snipers
-KGB Heavies can take an surprising amount of hits before they go down, while dishing out a lot of damage themselves while you try to whittle them down. Minigun Heavies, on the other hand, can search out elevated places to camp and knock you back if you try to reach them via your triple-jump. In both cases, using your mobilty to get on top of their heads and goomba them to death will be the easiest option, especially if facing a mini-gun heavy.
-Pyros, while not dealing an impressive amount of damage themselves, can defend sentry nests (and airblast you up so that the sentry can lock onto you) and/or heavies, making them extremely hard to take down.
