Pinkie Pie outside Dash's home S1E25

The cloudominium in Party of One.

The Cloud House and Cloudominium are Rainbow Dash's cloud-based homes in Ponyville. They are large, floating dwellings with exteriors made of clouds and rainbows and interiors made of more solid material such as wood and stone. The Cloud House is called "Cloud House" and the "Cloudominium" in some merchandise and other material, and the Cloudominium is called the "Cloudominium" and "Rainbow Dash's House" in Gameloft's mobile game and various other merchandise and depictions.

Development and production

The term "cloudominium" was used in asset file naming of Rainbow Dash's cloud house.[1] The name was also used by colorist Janice Kubo to describe Dave Dunnet's artwork,[2] which was later identified as Cloudsdale preproduction art on page 35 of the guidebook The Elements of Harmony. The name was used again by Jim Miller on Twitter in reference to Rainbow Dash's "cloudominium" on April 25, 2015.[3]

The cloudominium's interior shown in the IDW comics' My Little Pony Micro-Series Issue #2 coda is derived from fanart[4][5] mistaken by Tony Fleecs for official artwork.[6]

Depiction in the series

Season one

Rainbow Dash home S1E10

The cloud house in Swarm of the Century.

Rainbow Dash's cloud house appears only three times in the series: Griffon the Brush Off, Dragonshy, and Swarm of the Century.

In Griffon the Brush Off, only the house's exterior is shown, with cloud pillars and rainbow waterfalls. In Dragonshy, Rainbow Dash uses the rainbow water as face paint as she prepares to set off with her friends to confront a dragon. In Swarm of the Century, some of the house's interior is shown; Rainbow Dash sleeps on a bed of clouds as she is awakened by a small swarm of parasprites.

The cloudominium first appears in Party of One, when Pinkie Pie invites Rainbow Dash to Gummy's birthday party.

Season two

In Read It and Weep, Rainbow Dash's cloudominium has a more elaborate-looking, enclosed bedroom than that of her cloud house. She reads the Daring Do book series on her bed.

Season three

In Wonderbolts Academy, Rainbow Dash and her friends have a picnic outside the cloudominium while waiting for Rainbow's Wonderbolt Academy acceptance letter.

Season four

Rainbow Dash 'ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh' S4E04

The cloudominium foyer in Daring Don't.

In Daring Don't, the cloudominium has a large, open foyer in which Rainbow has a Wonderbolts statue on display. In Testing Testing 1, 2, 3, Rainbow flies to her house with Twilight Sparkle as Twilight helps her prepare for her Wonderbolts Reserve exam.

Season five

In Castle Sweet Castle, Rainbow Dash gathers various Wonderbolts memorabilia from her house and brings it to the Castle of Friendship to make it feel more like a home. In Tanks for the Memories, Rainbow Dash's friends visit her cloudominium and help her accept Tank's need to hibernate.

Season six

In Newbie Dash, the Mane Six appear at Rainbow Dash's house to send Rainbow off before heading to the Wonderbolt Headquarters. Later in the episode, the Mane Six and the Cutie Mark Crusaders throw Rainbow a party after her first training session.

Other depictions

IDW comics

The cloudominium appears on pages 20–21 of My Little Pony Micro-Series Issue #2. Rainbow Dash tethers the house to the ground when she believes pulling off a sonic double rainboom has prevented her from flying again.

In Gameloft's mobile game, the cloudominium is Rainbow Dash's Ponyville home.[7] In Gameloft production material, it is listed as "Rainbow Dash's House"[8]

Discovery Family (previously the Hub Network)'s online game Equestrivia Challenge had "Rainbow Dash" as the correct answer to the question "Which awesome pony used to live here?"[9] in reference to the cloud house in Griffon the Brush Off, Dragonshy, and Swarm of the Century.

Merchandise
