Eyes go shut
Into thin air leaving no trace
Why don't you just save your breath?
All of your words feel like a jail
That blocks the sun and makes me stale
Not enough gold in all the world
So why have I surrendered
To your abusive ways
The cracks have opened up to the core
Is there anywhere to go from here now?
Sick with the lies consuming our souls...
Give me one reason to take the breath we breathe for granted
Hold it in so long that you forget to say
Give me one reason to remain confined within the fences
Here with you and my soul on display...
Life is too precious to waste...

The Destined Flame and Soul of Harmony, in "Harmonic Spectrum." Otherwise known as the Flame of Loyalty, in other fan work involving her (if her necklace is on, that is).
My fanonical (and NOT an OC, btw) concept of an uber-powered transformation for Rainbow Dash. Originally spawned out of my head in summer 2011 as a need to further match Sonic the Hedgehog, as the two of them are extremely similar to each other.
Super Rainbow Dash originally appeared in two of the fanfics in my "Super Klonoa Unleashed" universe, at first using the seven Chaos Emeralds from the Sonic franchise to transform. However, because the Sonic franchise's reputation had dropped in recent years with a series of badly developed games, because Equestria Daily's visitors and pre-readers REALLY don't take kindly to Sonic or anything relating to him such as the Chaos Emeralds appearing on the blog at all, and due to some very interesting theories I've heard on Rainbow Dash (see them here: super-klonoa-gt.deviantart.com… ), I decided to retcon those two fics and had, since then, been working on a fic that has her transforming through the Elements of Harmony instead, basing it on those same theories, that'll also hopefully meet EqD's high quality standards as well. The fic is titled "Harmonic Spectrum."
You can read the in-progress fic below on my page here, or on my FiMFiction page: www.fimfiction.net/user/Super%…
As seen in this art collection of her and in chapters 3 and 4 of "HS," the appearance of her transformation is as follows:
-A pure white coat with ruby red eyes. (required) She basically becomes an albino, and was based off of the albino design of Super Klonoa, which in turn was inspired by the various albino characters in various anime such as Soul Eater and Fullmetal Alchemist.
-A waving, rising, flaming rainbow mane and tail that emits embers from them (or simply a spiked-up rainbow mane, if artists so choose). (required) Inspired by Twilight Sparkle's enraged burning form and, to some people out there, the Super Saiyans of DBZ as well as Super Sonic (especially if artists choose the spiked-up rainbow mane instead of the waving flame and embers, or a combination of both. Depends, really).
-The cloud part of her cutie mark changes from white to storm grey. (required) Since the vector of her by GeoNine, artists have begun to do the same afterwards, by changing the cloud part of it to storm grey in order to avoid blending in with her white coat. Character-wise, by making it storm grey, it symbolizes the great, sheer, Harmonic power that is wildly swirling within Super Dash.
-The Element of Loyalty necklace on. (optional) Since I originally made her transform through the Chaos Emeralds, I was at first going to go without it. But then, I got a suggestion from someone to include it and it stuck ever since. Now in "Harmonic Spectrum" and onwards, the true hidden potential of the Elements of Harmony gets unlocked by Dash, and so the Harmonic energy from the other necklaces and the Crown of Magic gets siphoned into her own necklace and into herself as well, siphoning enough to make her transform.
-Large pegasus wings. (optional) Inspired by fanart depicting normal Dash with large wings instead of her normal small ones. Combined with her being white, it certainly makes her look almost angelic, no?
The styling of the flames/mane and the size of the wings may vary in artwork of her, as well as the exact shade of white.
If you wish, btw, you can include her in your own fanwork as well, whether they be comics, fics, etc. You can also change her method of transformation as well if you desire. Through all of the Elements of Harmony consolidated into one necklace (as I'm doing now), through the Chaos Emeralds (as I've originally done), through her Element of Loyalty alone (showing extreme amounts of loyalty, perhaps?), through simple rage and anger (ala "Feeling Pinkie Keen")... I don't care.
Just be sure to credit me for her Super form design, alright? (Unless it's already in the Harmonic-Spectrum group.... and/or unless you're Hasbro/DHX, should such a design be canonized. Disclaimer below.)
As shown on the poster at the top of this page, my personal unofficial theme for Super Rainbow Dash is "5OUL ON D!SPLAY" from Gran Turismo 5.
Rainbow Dash is © Hasbro/Lauren Faust.
The design of her Super form may be made up by me, but the overall character still belongs to them. It was not anywhere near difficult to design such a transformation anyway, and as such, they could easily design her like this if they wanted to.
So as far as I understand, Hasbro is well within their legal rights to use such a concept if they wish. I cannot exactly sue them over such a commonly-used concept of a Super form as well as many design aspects of her that are common as well. Unless their legal system goes deeper than I can understand, they are free to claim ownership of it as they wish.

The blue pegasus was back on the long open path in the forest that she and her friends used to reach the castle ruins earlier, now going in the opposite direction towards Ponyville. She flew as fast as she desperately could, her wings flapping as hard as they can.
Were they serious? She thought as she continued to speed along the path. Were they really going to enact what she saw in her dream? Despite what Discord and Twilight had said, even though she already took their words as proof that her dream was becoming true, a small part of Dash's mind was doubting it. After all, they could have said that just to deceive her, only to place their doings somewhere else, instead. For that, she had to be completely sure that they weren't lying. She had to see it all for herself to confirm it.
Dash was approaching the end of the long path. A large, open, tree-less cliff area overlooking the landscape below was ahead of her, and soon, she saw and heard them.

It's been a while, eh?” said the draconequus, looking calm and trimming his eagle claw with a trimmer he summoned. “Oh, look at that.

“Uh huh... You do realize that we can seal you back in, right?” asked Twilight.
“Oh, I know, since those pretty jeweled necklaces and that crown of yours are on you as we speak. Seriously, why can't the Elements be, I dunno, a group of colorful, diamond-shaped gemstones, instead? They would look more threatening to me if they were that way if you ask me, instead of looking like something that a pretty pony princess would wear... Hm.”
Tossing the trimmer away, Discord glanced towards them, standing straight and tall.
“Honestly, the better question is, will I allow myself to taste the rainbow again like I so mistakenly did the first two times around? Once when I was theatr

In a short distance from the lit town of Ponyville, there laid a large, widespread forest; one that took care of itself, differentiating itself from the rest of the world. A forest that acted like an automated machine, needing no help from the ponies to help maintain it. It guided its own weather and its own ecosystem, a group of strings puppeteering it that was invisible to those who traverse it. It was utterly unpredictable, and with its own wildlife calling it home, the forest had been deemed dangerous by those who dared to venture in it.
On an open, straight path through Everfree, in the darkness of the night, there trotted the ponies who had now donned all of the Elements of Harmony, heading towards their destination and passing by several blocks of trees both tall and short, with an eerie mist that could be seen past the trees. Sounds of the forest's wildlife were heard around them, from owls hooting to timberwolves howling towards the sparkling moon above.
The air was damp a

Ch. 4: Magic ~Harmonic Awakening~
The door had opened inward, and Rainbow Dash had walked into the bedroom of her cloud home, carrying her saddle bag along. The blue pegasus had just arrived home from her visit with Scootaloo in the hospital, after spending some time with the little filly with the Daring Do book that she bought.
Now that the filly had gone to sleep peacefully, it was time for Dash to crash in for the night as well. Midnight was approaching, with the moon almost reaching towards the middle of the night sky.
Closing the door behind her, Dash walked on to her bed, stopping at the side of it and taking her bag off with her hooves. She turned the night light on the table beside her bed, illuminating her room brightly enough with its light, and she jumped up on the bed, sitting on top of the blanket and positioning herself near the middle of the bed.
The pegasus sighed

“Gosh. It sure takes some waitin' to do before you're up and runnin' again.”
Applejack sighed, staring at the ceiling above while lying down on the medical bed in one of the many rooms in the Ponyville Hospital. It had only been a day since she was rescued from the burning, crumbling farm, and as much as she wanted to be her apple-bucking self again, she still, indeed, needed to recover from the many burns that were inflicted on her coat.
A few seconds had passed. Suddenly, she heard the hospital's entrance doors hit their surrounding walls loudly, making her jump a bit. A group of loud, chattering, alarmed voices was then heard, along with what sounded like a hoof stampede and somepony wailing on a high note, the tone of it sounding rather distressed and painful. Applejack recognized the wailing cry and knew who it belonged to.
“Scootaloo?” She lifted her head up to look at the open doorway ahead.
The stampede and wailing cry became louder and louder

Ch. 3: “Kindness, Generosity, and Laughter”
Darkness. Pure, total darkness... Nothing but an empty black void around her. It was as black as black could possibly be. It was all there was, all there ever could be, going far into the seemingly endless distance, both ahead and in her surroundings.
Yet, she stood there on all fours, motionless and still as a statue, with her eyes closed and without a semblance of wind moving her rainbow mane and tail...
Soon enough, Dash slowly lifted her eyes open...
...and only after she opened them did she find herself in this great, endless void of surrounding darkness where nothing could be seen.
“What in the world...?” Dash began to look at her surroundings, widening her eyes a bit and finding nothing else besides her own being. “Where...where am I? It's...it's totally pitch black in h

The sun had set, and night had fallen over the world of Equestria. The sky was now a darker shade of its former self, with the bright white moon and several shining stars littered across it like sparkling dust.
At a corner of this grand land which the night sky laid its eyes upon, illuminating it with the same shade of midnight blue, there lay a huge, sprawling, metropolitan city, with several towers, skyscrapers, and buildings of steel that stood, reaching as high they could. The city had its own illumination along with the sky's: that of its own army of differently colored lights that emitted from every corner and every side of it. Unlike the timid quietness of the miles-away Ponyville, several loud sounds could be heard, and all of them were distinct from each other. Sounds of ponies chattering away with each other on the streets, gossiping up the news of the day. Sounds of many vehicles roaming about, their engines as loud as a lion's roar as they drove across the streets and r

Ch. 2: "Honesty"
"So you were trapped in there by one of them, huh?"
A mere few minutes had passed since the blue pegasus, Rainbow Dash, rescued her friend, Applejack, from the burning, collapsing ruins of the Sweet Apple Acres barn. If it were not for the unshakable loyalty and bravery of the rainbow-maned pony, her friend would not have been here, in the safe confines of Ponyville Hospital with the nurses tending to her burns and injuries. But alas, she was.
Dash stood there in the room with her, watching as the two nurses apply various healing salves and bandages all over her orange-coated body. Applejack twitched and jumped as the salves were being applied over her burn marks, from her chest to her sides and back, with a slightly painful look on her face.
"A Changeling got you..." Dash said, looking concerned. "Darn! They've been everywhere recently."

Wake up...destined one.
Dash's eyes had snapped open from the darkness, orange colored light filling them at a slow pace as they tried to come into focus. Something had just awoke her from the deep sleep she was in. A voice, it was, that startled her as if a loud horn blared obnoxiously into the depths of her pony ears.
As her eyes moved left and right, wondering what she had just heard, she lifted her head up to assess her surroundings. No one or nopony was in the now-lit room with her, the bright orange tint of it that was now radiating inward from the window. At least, with her half-focused eyes, she saw that no one was in here...but she needed to be sure.
Dash slowly sat up from the comforts of her bed, her body still half-asleep. A few seconds had passed, and her eyes were now focused enough for her to clearly see.
She observed her surroundings once more... Again, no one was there, only the bright rays of the morning sun emitting and filling her room.
Dash sighed deeply

Ch. 1: "Loyalty"
A few days earlier...
"Honesty, Kindness, Laughter, Generosity, and Loyalty.
These are but five of what a pony needs in order to have a long-lasting friendship with others. They are what he or she needs to be a good pony in general. They are what is needed if one wants to be a true hero of ponykind.
And they are what is needed, along with the support of that friendship or that relationship with the people, to activate the "spark." The spark of Magic.
So came the rebirth of the legendary Elements of Harmony, the most powerful sources of magic known in the history of Equestria, after a thousand years of dormant sleep. A thousand years after Her Majesty, Princess Celestia, used them to banish her corrupted sister to the moon... Alas, the prophecies foretold that the Mare in the Moon would return after such a period of time, and she would have, indeed, plunged all

The Elements of Harmony. The most powerful magic in all of Equestria...
For two times now, they have been wielded by six individual ponies, bound together by the Magic of Friendship, to successfully counter the wicked and chaotic ambitions of those who sought to conquer the world.
Yet, for all their usefulness, these magical artifacts still remain a mystery to most of ponykind. Perhaps the most important question is, was it really the full potential of them that was displayed by the wielders? Or is there simply more than what meets the eye?
When Rainbow Dash recieves an updated version of the book focusing on the Elements of Harmony and reads its new chapter that tells of a special incident that supposedly happened eons ago, soon, a series of events happen afterward. Events which ultimately culminate in Rainbow Dash discovering her true destiny, as well as discovering what she really holds inside in her very own soul...

The Dreamer of Light (formerly the Golden Dreamer), in the "Super Klonoa Unleashed" series of fanfics.
Namco Bandai's floppy-eared platforming hero, Klonoa, in an uber-powered transformation. Like Rainbow Dash, I originally came up with a Super form for him in 2005 just to match Sonic, as Klonoa's character design, as well as some aspects of his franchise, is similar to Sonic's.
He was originally golden yellow with dark blue eyes, but in 2011, after watching some episodes of the anime Soul Eater, I changed his colors to that of an albino, white with red eyes, which are actually frequently featured in anime these days. That, and I wanted to break off from the traditional Super Saiyan-inspired golden design and be more unique. So with that, I see neither Super Klonoa nor Super Rainbow Dash as being likened to the Super Saiyans, but as a thing of their own. The spiked-up hair is the only similarity, and that's it.
Super Klonoa is the main protagonist of the "Super Klonoa Unleashed" fanfic series, as well as my main Net identity/persona. His source of power comes from his own inner "Chaotic Wind" energy fusion, in which the power of the Chaos Emeralds had permanently fused with his own wind energy, allowing him to transform at will as well as to stay transformed as long as he wants. Despite these advantages, he still struggles against his enemies, never truly going all-out with his power until the last desperate minute.
In the fics after the first, unlike the games, Klonoa is mostly unclothed, only wearing his hat, gloves, shoes, and collar. This is so that he's closer to the animal that he is as well as making him closer to a Sonic character, whose male cast don't normally wear clothes (though, this was my original reason for unclothing him. Now its more or less attributed to my preference for unclothed cartoon animals in general). This is also to show off his color of his Super form more. A body filled with light, putting it metaphorically, making him look more appealing than he would be with clothes on. It's why some think Rainbow Dash looks better in white rather than her normal blue.
So, to recap his design:
-Pure white fur with ruby red eyes.
-Spiked up hair bangs. Artists may choose to make them longer.
The white shading on him may vary, as well as the lines on his ears and tail, whether they disappear or not since he's all white.
It was his unofficial theme first before Super Dash was concepted and based off of him, so yeah, Super Klonoa's theme is "5OUL ON D!SPLAY" from Gran Turismo 5.

The disclaimer seen for Super Rainbow Dash applies here as well.
|"OC" stands for "Original Character," which would be a character created from the ground up by fans. Contrary to what some people are claiming, Super Rainbow Dash is NOT an OC and, as her name says, is a Super transformation of Rainbow Dash, a canon character that Hasbro owns. So even though I created the concept of her having a Super form, it is still not my character overall and thus still belongs to Hasbro. And as far as I'm aware, Hasbro IS legally allowed to take concepts from a fan as long as the concept involves a character that they already own. If they weren't, then they shouldn't be canonizing a lot of fan concepts such as Doctor Whooves, Derpy, the term "alicorn," humanized ponies, etc etc.|
Besides, I'm in no position to sue them anyway, not when the concept of Super Dash itself is derived from many ideas that have repeated themselves time and time again. And due to this, I'm definitely not seeking any profits either, unlike so many morons out there. Hasbro will have my word on this if they choose to use her, as again, its still their character after all.
As for those who don't want to see her canon, well, here's my response to them: super-rainbow-dash-1.deviantar…
The same goes for Super Klonoa, btw.
|What the title says. If you've been inspired by the likes of "Double Rainboom" and "Snowdrop" (or you have personally been on their production teams), and you're wanting to start a minor or major fan animation project of your own, then hear me out.|
Speaking as the creator and designer of the fanon concept of Super Rainbow Dash (the white version, anyway), my ultimate goal is for her to become canonized into the show itself by Hasbro and DHX. I've already done all I can (barring finishing the fic with her and getting it on Equestria Daily) to get her widespread, but ultimately, in the end, it is up to the discretion of Hasbro and DHX to canonize her, and plus, there could always be legal issues that could prevent them from doing so. (I really doubt that, though. See the widget below this.)
Should they make the decision not to, then honestly, a fan-made animation project will do for me. It doesn't specifically have to be a 22-minute episode, though. Just, say, a two-minute or five-minute animation of her transforming and kicking ass would be feasible. But if you are willing to go all out and shoot for 22 minutes, then go for it.
Whichever path you may choose, either way, know that I'm always willing to be involved in the production of it, whether I get to be a simple advisor/overseer or be the main writer of the plot and script. It's all up to you, and if required, I'll be willing to put myself under a non-disclosure agreement. I've been under official NDA's before, and have definitely seen the consequences that happen when you break them.
So, yeah, let me know by sending me a note and we'll see!
Please, seriously, for the love of all that are rainbows and speedily fast pegasi... do yourself a favor and look up the real meaning of the term. Do not confuse it with the phrase, "I don't like this character," or any other BS either.
Super forms are not perfect and never are. As the laws of fiction have consistently shown, there could always be a higher power that outclasses whatever transformation that a character is in. It doesn't always mean that you're invincible, and it definitely isn't something that will instantly fix a character's flaws in both personality and in the relationships around him/her. In fact, given the circumstance, it could make the character worse in one or both of those areas.
So please get it right and don't moronically, mercilessly post it on places like certain forums. Otherwise, you'll look like a fool. Thanks.
