On May 23, 2014, an Enterplay collectible card game developer and trading card writer referred to Rainbow Blaze as Rainbow Dash's dad;[2] on December 17, 2014, IDW comics writer Ted Anderson stated that, of the Mane Six's family and relatives, "we’ve caught the briefest glimpse of Rainbow’s dad in a flashback,"[3] implicitly referring to Rainbow Blaze's appearance in Games Ponies Play. On July 10, 2016, Jim Miller stated that "we've never met" Rainbow Dash's parents.[5] In contrast to what was stated in 2014, at the 2016 Middle Equestrian Convention in Poland, My Little Pony character designer Kora Kosicka replied to a fan question concerning Rainbow Blaze, "No, that wasn't the dad."[6] On September 14, 2016, the Enterplay collectible card game's Twitter account stated, "Who said Rainbow Blaze is Rainbow Dash's father? (We just heavily, heavily, heavily, heavily, heavily imply it. :)".[7]

Rainbow Blaze was first named on his Enterplay collectible card game Canterlot Nights expansion set card #17 C, which shows him in Canterlot Castle and lists the quote, "Of course Rainbow Dash is a good flier. I taught her everything she knows!" In the Marks in Time expansion set, Rainbow Dash's card #10 C lists the quote, "I had the Junior Speedsters chant stuck in my head for three years straight! Never got sick of it either, but my dad sure did."
