Rainbow Dash’s Pro Skater is a video game idea. It is a spinoff of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. In the game, you play as one of many characters from the show (or your own) and attempt to become the best skater in Equestria.
RDPS has the same basic gameplay as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4. There is a Career mode where the character skates around several different levels freely. There are NPC’s that you preform missons for to progress in the game. Since the controls for a pony skateboarding would be rather awkward, the skater is humanized. The only NPC’s that are humans are the playable skaters, only if they are an NPC in the misson (ex. in a vert competition with Applejack). Like in THPS4, the game also has high score, free skate, 2-player, and create-a-park modes.

The handheld versions on 3DS, DS, and PSP differ from the console games. These versions of the games are based around the first three Tony Hawk games. You have two minutes to check as many goals off a list as possible. You don’t have to do every goal in one run; once it’s done, it’s done.
The handheld version features ten skaters (the Mane Six, Spike, Celestia, DJ P0N-3, and Custom Skater), eight levels (Ponyville, Los Pegasus, Manehattan, Niagara Foals, Cruise Ship, Hoofston, Discordia, and Canterlot) that are much smaller than their console versions (except for Cruise Ship, which is more or less the same size), and the soundtrack has no songs from THPS4, THUG2, or THAW. Because of the Playstation Vita’s technical capabilities, the full console game would be ported to the system.
The game features the ability to create up to five Custom Skaters (two on handhelds). They are all included as the “Custom Skater” character, and you can choose which one to play as.
Easter Egg: Angry Video Game Nerd’s character select screen animation is him playing a Game Boy. If you rotate him, you can barely see him playing the Game Boy Color version of the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.
Reference: Babs’ mission in Niagara Foals involves a taxi. The taxi’s door reads “Shabby Cab Co.”, a reference to Tony Hawk’s Underground 2.
Reference: In the Caneighda level, Pinkie breaks the fourth wall. Quote: “I really wanted to have Party Hard on the soundtrack, but no, it has to be Ready To Die. That’s a downer.”
Reference: Josh breaks the fourth wall when you complete his mission in Manehattan. Quote: “Nice, very nice. Now how about you get your ass up and ride a real skateboard?”
