The Original Rainbow Power Ponies by kaylathehedgehog The Original Rainbow Power Ponies by kaylathehedgehog
The mane six may think that they're the first ponies to have access to the power of the rainbow, but they would be wrong in that thought.  All the way back in 1983, Hasbro released the first set of Rainbow Ponies, a group of six ponies of varying types that each possessed the power of the rainbow.  They were the first ponies to have more than two colors in their hair. 

Just as a reference for those who may not be familiar with the ponies of G1:
Starshine - White Pegasus Pony
Sunlight - Aqua Earth Pony
Moonstone - Blue Unicorn
Windy - Purple Unicorn
Parasol - Pink Earth Pony
Skydancer - Yellow Pegasus Pony

If you read the backcard stories for them, you'll find that the Rainbow Ponies have their own, special brand of rainbow magic.

Not really, no.  Both groups have rainbow hair, and both groups have rainbow based powers.

Did you not read their backcard stories?

Not really.  They're part of the Rainbow Pony series from the G1 toyline.

Skydancer did appear in "Escape from Catrina," but the other five were toy only.
