Scootaloo has a strong sense of justice, as shown when she hides under a table for weeks just to tell Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon off. She also takes what information is given, as shown by saying that "Apple Bloom can be any apple-related thing she wants!" This can cause her to be gullible at times. She is not afraid of crowds and loves getting attention, a trait she may have picked up from Rainbow Dash.
Scootaloo did not have many friends growing up and is desperate to keep her bond with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, as shown when all of her club ideas have the word friend in them. Her mother, Rainbow Dash, knows little about her.
