Rainbow Dash as Nyan Cat in My Little Pony

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic parody of Nyan Cat with Rainbow Dash

In a recent episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic titled “The Mysterious Mare Do Well” there appears to be a hidden reference to Nyan Cat, recreated starring Rainbow Dash. What, you might be wondering, is Nyan Cat? Well… it’s a Pop Tart cat leaving a rainbow trail while flying through space as annoying music plays! Seems fitting to put Rainbow Dash in a similar situation…

Some question that this is actually a Nyan Cat reference. Masked Toast over at the AllSpark message board points out a similarity to an early sketch of Rainbow Dash which predates Nyan Cat. Perhaps it was the placement of this image over the night sky and stars which was an intentional reference, or perhaps it was just a coincidence.

Here’s a great version starring Ravage from Transformers by Josh Perez. I was lucky enough to be able to pick up a print of it at this year’s Botcon.
