Ponysona4 - Rainbow's Shadow by Dazed-and-Wandering Ponysona4 - Rainbow's Shadow by Dazed-and-Wandering
Rainbowdash's shadow, deep inner true feelings manifested (maneifested for those who like puns) on the television screen. She's awesome and better than you, who needs friends when you're the best.

I personally think Rainbow's shadow would be more like Kanji's, showing her repressed "not as cool" side. Fluttershy's might be like Chie's, though.

Well this WAS drawn back in 2011, so I only had one season to base it on.
Really don't remember what my thoughts were at the time.

Well I haven't really touched it in three years, maybe I'll come back to it some day, but probably not anytime soon.

Recently, I think a more fitting Shadow Rainbow Dash would be one reflecting the sensitivity that she constantly tries to hide.

So, like...Rainbow Dash in a dress with a big pink bow in her mane. The monster...probably a cloud djinn with rainbow ribbons?

"Boy, do I HATE the cool types. Cool types are so atrocious - they don't care if you're hurt, attack anything they don't like, and spread nasty lies behind your back. They look at me like some...some kind of weird THING and criticize every little flaw - LAUGHING all the while! 'You go to royal dances? What a wimp!' 'Reading is so not you!' 'But you should be cool!' 'You don't act very cool!' 'Why can't you be more extreme?!' What does it mean to be 'cool'? What does it mean to be 'extreme'?!"

I think the part that RD tries to hide the hardest from others is the crippling fear of failure and the low-self-esteem that exists behind that arrogance.

Well to me her shadow would probably say something like this:
"The reason you want to join the wonderbolts? You just want to be popular. Face it, you don't talk about how amazing you are all the time because you mean it, you just want to show confidence so ponys respect you. You're nothing without other ponies. You can't stand to be alone that's all. Those, so called friends of yours? Nothing more than crutches to keep you sane. You don't care what happens to them because you like them. You're only worried about losing a source of encouragement. Your element is loyalty? Please, don't make me laugh! The only pony you're loyal to is yourself!"

Remember the shadows aren't cliche Hannibal lectures, THEY REALLY ARE what the ponies thinks and feels in the deepest most forbidden parts of their minds, the thoughts and feels they never want others to know about, nor do they want to acknowledge of themselves.

Actually, what you say is half true. Shadows represent, basically, the darkness in their heart. So while they do reveal their deepest darkest secrets, or true self. They also say things that aren't true, like Kanji being scared of girls, or Youske not liking Saki. They do it to make the original not except them, so they can become a different person. Due to this, they are more or less, twisted doppelgangers.

Yosuke flat out admits he knew his shadow wasn't lying, but was too ashamed to admit it.

He admits to the part about using Saki as an excuse to go in and become a "Hero". But his Shadow goes on to say he doesn't give a shit about her or anyone else, which is obviously wrong from the way he acts before she dies.

I think her Shadow would be the side of her with extreme performance anxiety. The one who stalled as long as possible. RD would claim that the wimp wasn't her, or try to hide her from her friends.

Since this is a Shadow, wouldn't it be more proper for her to be wearing a Shadow Bolt's uniform?

(okay was going to respond to this a few weeks ago, older drawing so I completely forgot)
The shadow is supposed to be the repressed part of the subconscious, so deep down rainbow doesn't see herself as evil, she sees herself as being awesome and good enough to be the leader of the wonderbolts.

Ooh, can't wait to see what her beast-form's gonna look like!

What would her and Pinkie Pie get as their personas?

The shadows are fun, I haven't even started thinking about the personae, except maybe Fluttershy's.

I like the 'cheap television screen' effect you manage here. Nice work.

Persona 4 was a pretty awesome game, but this would have made it about 20% cooler.
