Sonic vs Rainbow Dash is a What-If? episode of Death Battle.


Sonic the Hedgehog vs My Little Pony! The speedy blue cocky animals enter the ring? Can Dashy's loyalty to her friends help her kill the fastest thing alive?


Wiz: The fastest characters in fiction have been known to reach incredible speeds, but few can match up to the animal duo of the two greatest fictional hedgehog and pegasi.

Boomstick: Sonic, the spikey, speedy, blue blur.

Wiz: And Rainbow Da-


Wiz: Well I guess that we have no choice or the demanding fans would rage.

Boomstick: BUT MLP FANS... ok then. Rainbow Dash, the fast and furious G4 Pegasus. He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills, to find out who would win, a Death Battle.


Wiz: Sonic is the greatest Freedom Fighter you'll ever find. Gifted with Santa-coloured shoes, Sonic can now roll around at the speed of sound.

Boomstick: This hedgehog is one cocky son of a gun! He'll make jokes no matter how intense a battle is! His kicks and punches are super powerful, kicking through robots all the time.

Wiz: And, he has a couple of power ups to attack with. The Electric box has Sonic get surrounded in electric. He than can run way faster than before. The Fire box has similar effects, though the Bubble box let's Sonic bounce and breathe underwater.

Boomstick: He also has a Spin Dash. Created by Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic can spin in a spiky ball and spin towards an opponent. It's a really well-known attack. And than, when Sonic's takes out the Chaos Emeralds, he becomes his greatest form.

Wiz: Super Sonic has Sonic turn gold. It turns him invincible, gets him faster, and grants him the power of flight. Though, this form only lasts a minute.

Boomstick: Sonic is the fastest thing alive, and he's AWESOME!

Sonic: You're too slow!

Rainbow Dash[]

Wiz: Rainbow Dash is probably the most popular pony of the Mane Six. Pony of Loyalty, Rainbow is one your rather be friends with instead of foe.

Boomstick: She's the most athletic of her group, playing soccer whenever she gets the chance! And she never loses a game, unless losing is what would start off the episode's plot!

Wiz: For attacking, Dashy uses her hooves to deliver powerful bucks and kicks. These kicks are very powerful, trust me!

Boomstick: And her speed is almost unmatched. She can race around areas, only looking like a blur! This speed helped Rainbow kill Starscream.

Wiz: Sadly, Rainbow's cockiness gets the best of her. She always underestimates her opponents, and sometimes even her friends! At one point, she even stole the spotlight from her friends, even though the whole team was supposed to sing… to save the world? I don't get this plot.

Boomstick: And, bucks and kicks are pretty much ALL she does. Still, she's a force to be reckoned with!

Wiz: And she still has her most powerful attack, the Sonic Rainboom. This attack has Rainbow Dash get surrounded in rainbow aura. She than rushes forward at her fastest speed, smashing right through anything in her way.

Boomstick: Rainbow Dash is awesome! I want her to be MY little pony!

Rainbow Dash: It. Is. On...



Sonic is trudging through Equestria, discovering this new land. Finding stuff he needs is always tough, and this particular adventure even brought Sonic to a land full of ponies. But the Speedy Hedgehog needed to do it if he truly wanted to stop Eggman. You need to do as much as you can when you're a Freedom Fighter, after all. Boredom getting the best of Sonic, he decided to speed things up. Sonic ran faster than you could see, rushing by all the nearby ponies and horses. Sonic, not watching where he was going, ran right into the farm girl Applejack, knocking a basket full of fresh apples to the ground. The apples all fell out of the basket, getting bruised and battered.

"Hey, you!" Applejack called out to the Blue Blur. Hearing his name, Sonic put himself to a stop, and rushed back to Applejack.

"Yeah?" Sonic asked, unaware of what he did. Applejack fiercely pointed to the bruised apples. Sonic rubbed the back of his head. "Oh, sorry 'bout that. Well, I best be going! Good luck with your farm!" Sonic turned around to continue his jog, but Applejack tightly grabbed Sonic's shoulder with her hoof, and spun him around.

"Oooooooh, no. You're not getting around that easy. I need to teach you a lesson." Applejack growled. Sonic gently chuckled at her bravery. Like, who could match Sonic the Hedgehog? He'd soon find out, as the bright-blue pony, Rainbow Dash, walked up to see what Applejack was fussing about.

"What's going on here?" Rainbow asked innocently.

"HE knocked down my perfect apples! It took four months to get those!" Applejack scowled. Sonic the Hedgehog put his hands up in defence, and took a light step backwards.

"He did WHAT?! Oh, that's just unforgivable." Rainbow Dash shot her head up to look at the Fastest Thing Alive. "Okay, Blue Porcupine... It. Is. On." Rainbow stared intensely at Sonic. Sonic, knowing he wouldn't get out of this anytime soon, stared back at the little pony.

"I'm Sonic the Hedgehog, known around he world for kicking little ponies' BUTTS. Nah, that's a lie. But soon it'll be true... Bring it! Or are you too slow?" Sonic cooed, more cocky than he's ever been before. This just got Rainbow angrier.

"I'm Rainbow Dash, and I represent loyalty! So I'll be loyal to Applejack and kick the spines right off your body!" Rainbow Dash was ready for he fight of her life. Applejack and all the other ponies in he area took a few steps backwards, but kept their eyes glued to the fight that was about to commence. With a grunt from Sonic and a growl from Rainbow, the two fighters were ready.


(Cues Big Arms theme )

Immediately, Rainbow flew into the sky and charged at Sonic. Being light on his feet, Sonic sidestepped with ease, and grabbed onto Rainbow's tail. After a few spins, Sonic threw Rainbow into Applejack's barn. The side of the barn was completely destroyed from the impact.

"Rainbow will make you pay for that too!" Applejack shouted to Sonic from the sidelines. Standing up, Rainbow Dash quickly picked straw out of her, than got back to the battle. Rainbow Dash flew towards Sonic, this time catching him off guard, and bucking him right in the jaw. Sonic stumbled backwards. Before Sonic could get back on his feet, Rainbow delivered a powerful punch to Sonic's chest with her front hoof. Sonic fell to the ground, and shook his head wildly to regain focus. Sonic hopped up, than uppercutted Rainbow Dash right in the face. Rainbow Dash shrugged off the pain, than dodged Sonic's next attack. Sonic equipped the Lightning power-up, getting faster. He began running circles around Rainbow with blinding speed, as if taunting her. But Rainbow wasn't one unfamiliar with speed, and she kicked her back hooves at the perfect timing. Sonic was hit, and he lost his Lightning power-up.

"The bronies aren't gonna like this!" Sonic yelled. Sonic followed his yell right up by punching Rainbow in the chest. Rainbow was launched into the air, so Sonic jumped up, and executed a quick spin attack. Rainbow got a scratch on her side, and she fell to the ground. Rainbow Dash didn't move, so Sonic stood over her body and laughed. But Sonic was cut off, as Rainbow stood up and kicked Sonic hard in the leg. Sonic's leg filled with pain, so he grabbed his leg and hopped backwards.

"You need to be about 20% cooler to stand a chance against me!" Rainbow shouted, letting her cockiness be released. Sonic put both feet back on the ground, and he charged up another spin dash. Rainbow Dash smirked. Sonic rushed forward with the attack, but Rainbow Dash kicked him out of the ball-form. Sonic jumped above Rainbow and used a ground stomp, but Rainbow Dash lifted herself out of the way with her wings. Sonic was a speedy hedgehog, though, as right when he stomped the ground, he jumped up and used a homing spin attack. Rainbow received minor damage, but to Sonic, dealing minor damage is better than dealing no damage at all. "This isn't working as planned... He's too hard to beat... So I guess the Sonic Rainboom is my last hope." Rainbow sighed. Unfortunately for Rainbow, Sonic knew it was time to finish things off too. Pulling out all of the Chaos Emeralds, Sonic started to drain all of their power for him to use. Equestria flashed white, and Sonic's blue fur was now golden yellow. His eyes went from green to red. This could only mean one thing; he became Super Sonic! Rainbow Dash shuddered at the sight of Sonic's Godly Form, but she knew it wasn't over. A rainbow aura surrounded Rainbow Dash, and she rushed towards Super Sonic with incredible speed. A trail of rainbows was left behind Rainbow Dash as she flew.

"Pitiful. She thinks she can harm me when I'm in this form?" Super Sonic crossed his arms for a mere second, than rushed at Rainbow Dash's Sonic Rainboom with amazing speed. The two collided, and a huge explosion covered the area. Almost nothing survived. All that was left in the area was Applejack, her barn, and the other ponies left in the stands. Sonic and Rainbow were lying on the ground, both presumingly dead. Well, presumingly dead until one staggered up, and... scratched his blue head. Sonic stretched, and was completely refreshed after being in the Super Sonic form. Rainbow Dash was 100% dead, so Sonic continued on his jog.



Boomstick: AWESOME BATTLE! But Sonic is way stronger, being able to kick right through a robot!

Wiz: Sonic was even faster. Sonic is faster than light, while Rainbow Dash is simply about Mach 2!!

Boomstick: And Sonic had better durability, being able to fall from great heights, like in Sonic Adventure 1! Rainbow Dash was just too slow to roll around at the speed of sound!

Wiz: The winner is, Sonic the Hedgehog.

Two cocky blue heroes of immeasurable speed and AWESOMENESS


Wiz: Speed, cockiness and, being blue

Boomstick: These are the properties of our combatants

Sonic, the blue streak

And Rainbow Dash, the pony is back

I'm Wiz and he's Boomstick and it our duty to analyze their armor weapons and skill to find out who would win a Deathbattle

Sonic the Hedgehog[]

Earth 3000 years into the future, by now the planet was renamed Mobius there lives the true blue hero of Sonic the Hedgehog

Finally he's not fighting a plumber

Stated last time his maximum running speed is at least 2,000,000 mph

And Super is kicking it up a notch, WAY up a notch

However, without it's supply of rings it can only last about 50 seconds same with Hyper

But 50 seconds is usually how much he needs to win, not considering that apparently these rings appear EVERYWHERE HE FIGHTS

He also has access to power monitors, Fire shield a flaming shield that can't go in water but hims immunity to all fire and even a flame blast

The lighting shield also can't go in water and gives him a double jumps along with immunity to electricity

And the bubble shield allows him to breathe underwater and give him a bounce

Useful for a guy who still can't swim!

There's also his wisp abilities

A rocket, laser, spike thing and, monster Pac-man right?


We have to have found something for his durability than just that mountain right?

Sonic has existed in an area outside of conceivable space and time, twice, with Solaris and the Time Eater, though more definitively with Solaris, as Sonic Shadow and Silver confronted the near-omnipotent creature Sonic is either in the Unobservable Universe, which should be impossible as there's no way to get there as space and time and...well EVERYTHING has yet to even make it there yet he seems to be...just fine this "area" is more reminiscent of a singularity

So Sonic can just...chill in a black hole? Awesome

Not a black hole...maybe something similar...or just a black hole but if we were to assume that when Sonic in his Super State entered that black hole he bypassed the event horizon meaning that the Super State can easily take the black holes destructive potential which is equal to eighty-six octillion tons of TNT without him even needing to flinch

But what about Base?

In Sonic Unleashed, Sonic was underneath the crust, the pressure underneath the crust is at least 28,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons

That's 18 zeros!

The outermost area of the mantle is around 1832 degrees Fahrenheit or 1000 degrees Celsius

He should be...nothing but ashes by now and look at him he's acting like everything is perfectly fine!

All to save the world, nay universe from the hands of evil

"I get stronger every second!"

Rainbow Dash[]

In the world of Equestria lies Ponyville and the prime weather pony there is-

Cut the shit Wiz, we know that this horse is bad ass let's just get on with it

Ooook...Rainbow Dash the element of Loyalty and the Fastest Pegasus in Equestria

How fast you may ask? Well look at this!

That's the Sonic-


-Rainboom which visibly shatters the known light spectrum in order to vibrate the air in such a way to do this is to...well...i assume the speed she's going condenses the air enough to force it back into water but then dispersing it out into droplets to reflect in the Sun so to do that she must be flying at around the speed of lightnings return stroke as nothing solid has actually moved that fast putting Rainbow's top speed to at least 270,000 mph

That's insane

The Buccaneer Blast from what we've seen is bright enough to dim the area around you, during the day, in order to do that she'd need to make a blast brighter than 35.73 octillion lumens

8 zeroes!'s more than that...


In order to exert that much force she'd need to perform a move with at least 1000 tons of TNT attached to it

That's the strength of a small nuke!

She's also a master of karate

She also survived herself crashing into the ground

Assuming she was going at around mach 2 at this time we can assume she hit the ground with 10,579 pounds of force

And she was fine

She can also control the very weather itself, whether it be rain, snow, lightning, hail anything cloud related

Is there nothing this horse can't do?

Take a test?



"20% cooler"


Alright with the combatants all set and the data run through all possibilties

Let's get ready for a Deathbattle!

Combatants Sonic v Rainbow Dash


A portal opens up and Sonic runs through

Sonic: hm...this doesn't look like home...i'd better call Tails-

Rainbow Dash: Hey! We don't need any trouble here

Sonic: Looks around for the source of the noise

Rainbow Dash: Hey up here you dumb porcupine!

Sonic: Looks up at a cloud before jumping away from an oncoming lighting bolt Hey! watch it!

Rainbow Dash: On the cloud! Jumps off it Off it now, now hit the road shorty

Sonic: Hey you attacked me first horsey, I don't think i'll like it here if this is how you treat guest, especially me the fastest

Rainbow Dash: No-way i'm the fastest

Sonic: Wanna race on it?

Rainbow Dash: From here to Canterlot

Sonic: Uh...

Rainbow Dash:Points

Sonic: You're on!

They get in position

Sonic VS Rainbow Dash FIGHT

Rainbow Dash: She instantly realizes that his cruising speed is faster than hers So you cruise a little faster than me huh? No problem! She starts speeding up to pass him intentionally whap him with her tail

Sonic: Not bad but watch this Hops on top of her Yee-haw! Jumps off in front of her and runs backwards smirking at her You're outmatched, I know rabbits faster than you

Rainbow Dash: Speeds up more to where she front kicks him and starts dragging him along the ground Well I know rabbits tougher than you

Sonic: Digs his feet in the ground grabs Dash and flips her over head jumping up and hitting her with several homing attacks before spin dashing into her back

Rainbow Dash: Bucks him off and horse kicks him

Sonic: Land on his hands and flips to his feet running Ugh...rubbing his jaw Hey! Thanks for the boost! He boosts away

Rainbow Dash: Flies up and starts flying downward as a the rainboom goes off

Sonic: Looks back at the sky That's neat! Oh wa-

Rainbow Dash: Kicks him in the face full on launching him away flying to hit him again mid-air

Sonic: Flips around doing an overhead kick and starts skydiving to get back to the ground

Rainbow Dash: Dashes into him they both go off screen and a flash can be seen

Sonic: plummets to the ground and another rainboom sounds off and she rams into him  with a comedic ring loss sound

Rainbow Dash: She grabs a cloud to strike him with lightning Ha! That was fun but i’m gonna win the race now! Flies off

Sonic: Ugh...I can keep going...but I feel like really showing her up He floats up and goes super and blast off flying by her so fast she crashes into several of Canterlot’s pillars

Rainbow Dash: Snaps out of her daze...I...lost? She looks up and the city collapses on top of her

Sonic: Floating in air staring at the collapsed area...Oops



I hope they have that city insured

While Sonic held most of the advantages Rainbow did hold some key advantages, her flight let her take more control of the battlefield, putting Sonic in situations benefecial to her that he'd need to have quick witts to get out of

The problem for her was everything else!

Sonic is much faster and much more durable, there's no way she could even put a dent in him, she pretty much could only delay the inevitable

If base Sonic is too much for her than Super Sonic outclassed her in every way

Her advantages gone she essentially could only win if she overwhelmed Base Sonic...somehow

It was impossible for her to outlast Super Sonic either, he simply was better in every way

Overwhelmed and outmatched there was essentially no shot of Rainbow taking the fight

Looks like Sonic rainbowned her


Even better, Rainbow Crashed

..........the Winner is Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic is the Winner
