Description and in-character behaviour

Nightmare Moon is corrupted version of princess Luna, the younger sister of princess/queen Celestia. As Luna she was the protector of the night. Her list of duties is very short but at the same time her tasks are very dangerous and wearisome. After using her power to rise the moon, she enters the dream realm to protect her subjects from nightmares. She was doing her job hundreds if not thousands of years. As a lunar creature she was always alone without anyone to talk with, flying in the endless abyss of dreams. In addiction to that the entire country idolize her sister not her, in fact, nobody even remembers about her or how important is her job. In fury and sadness Luna turned into Nightmare Moon to overthrow Celestia and cover the world in eternal night. During her rebelion she was defeated by her sister and imprisoned on the moon for almost thousand years. Now she's back to end what she has begun ages ago.

In-character behaviour:

Nightmare Moon is cruel and ruthless. She murders without hesitation and is willing to use actions of terror. Such as taking hostages. However her arrogance is huge. She was outsmarted by Twilight Sparkle because she was so blinded by her ego. It can be used by smart opponents as their advantage.

Experience and age

Well she is definitely experienced in magic duels. She doesn't have any problems with fighting as an equal with Celestia who is stated to be leagues superior to Twilight Sparkle. Twilight has experience of fighting with multiple enemies at once, fast and strong beasts, powerfull magicians and even experience of fighting with godlike creatures (Like planetary level reality warper or Tirek who's magic was at least nuke level. Luna has experience of fighting against the same reality warper or King Sombra - powerfull sorcerer who's wielding the dark magic. I think that she's supposed to be at least few thousands years old. While she daily fights against beasts, magical constructs and other enemies in dream realm.

Reflexes

She has shown the ability to dodge laser beams in middle air while simultaneously casting other spells. After making some math whe can assume that those laser beams travel with speed of >360 m/s. And she was able to react to them at distance of 30 feets while simultaneously casting other spells. She reacted to them often after they were shot so it makes her an bullet-timing character at least.

Those laser beams are fast enough to catch up to Rainbow Dash (after a huge headstart for RD). RD here was performing Sonic Rainboom which is basically breaking the barrier of the sound. By logic the laser need to be faster than 360 m/s.
