Dude it's the sheer blunt-force power of hard-labour muscle versus the intense-impact power of high-performance athleticism. Ofcourse that's fucking metal because you know for sure that both of them have the kind of power to crack bones.
AJ can kick your ribcage to dust through sheer force of boot-strength, and Dash can probably hit you at such a speed that your body just can't absorb the impact and your whole frmae just vibrates until something breaks.
It's no surprise you think it's metal as fuck 'cause it's metal as fuck.
Twilight: What in Celestia's name happened? You beat the daylights out of each other and destroyed half the town in the process! Applejack: It all started with an armwrestling contest. Rainbow Dash: And then it kind of escalated.
The intensity of the kick in this picture is incredibly powerful, and that's not easy to do in still artwork And a kick that deadly from someone like AJ who's legs are god-tier from what she does all day isn't something to mess with, for sure! Even for Dash. Very nicely done.
Falcon KICK! Rainbow side stepped it. The smash ball appears then suddenly breaks in two, allowing RD to head butt it and AJ to high kick it. Their eyes glowing with power, Rainbow Dash is coated with a rainbow aura and charges while AJ powers up the Falcon Pawnch....
It all depends on who trained her/how well she was trained, since she could've just earned it half-assed. I've beaten a black belt when I didn't even know a martial art discipline. It also depends on how often she keeps up said training.
"i guess, but it sounds like an excuse of sorts (no offence) for renderings favorite pony superior" And hate to break it to ya, but this in no way makes Rainbow Dash superior...

well, Rainbow Dash has shown that she has a big heart and is very honorable, therefor has the discipline and respect to get it for real, she is a world class athlete, after all "And hate to break it to ya, but this in no way makes Rainbow Dash superior..." I wasnt trying to make Rainbow Dash superior in any way, just stating a well-backed opinion

She represents Loyalty, which is extremely honorable, sure she can be a bitch, but she has shown her willingness to give up her lifes work AND dream for her friends and what she thought was right, I dont understand how people call them selves bronys if they dont even look at the good side of all the characters come back to me when your willing to become a mature Brony, and not a bickering fan boy

No, Farming is not similar to taekwondo, or any of the other things, Rainbow Dash, is an expert fighter (black belt) AJ dosnt have a chance, not hating, i like all the ponies, im just using common sence."
"No, Farming is not similar to taekwondo" Who tells you human AJ doesn't practice some martial art on her free time ? Plus, being a hard physical worker, it's also common sense she's trained and over trained. "Years of apple bucking", as she would say. Peace.

i guess, but it sounds like an excuse of sorts (no offence) for renderings favorite pony superior, also, its even more far fetched to claim she too is a black belt (or master at said style) also, no hinting or referencing to any practice so yeah, my point remains completely valid
