Rainbow Dash and Sonic rainbooms

Postby Hagwhegsaze » Sun Apr 27, 2014 7:00 am

Ok, so I have seen Rainbow Dash do at least 3 sonic rainbooms
Image
And one she did in front of the wonderbolts and saved their lives, so why didn't the wonderbolts let her join the team? She is the only pony alive able to do a sonic rainboom, so I think that the wonderbolts are crazy. :flutterrage:

Ok another thing, Dash has to fly really fast to do the Boom, so is it possible for her to hurt her wings, she did one time but that was because she crashed but never hurt it in the air. So is Dash indestructible? I know its a TV show, but come on.

To be fair, the Wonderbolts look for more than simple speed in a member. They also look at overall flight skills and the personalities of those who want to join.

Meaning being able to hit incredible speeds doesn't get you on the elite flight squad. It takes training, teamwork and dedication.

Spoiler: show
Besides, they already realized her talent at the flight camp, the Equestria Games tryouts and even allowed her to take the test to become a reserve Wonderbolt. Clearly they see her potential.

As the Wonderbolts Academy showed, much like an actual military organization the last person ... er ... pony... you want on your team is the gung-ho one who is only interested in winning. Discipline, loyalty, and duty are key. Speed isn't everything.

Ah I see, that still doesn't tell me if she could hurt her wings or not by flying too fast

If the story calls for it, yes.

I know that's probably not the answer you were looking for, but anything else is speculation, really.

In-universe, though... I doubt it. Her special talent is, basically, "gotta go fast!" She's no more likely to hurt herself with sheer speed alone than Pinkie is to hurt herself while planning a party. :pinkiehappy:
