'''Rainbow Jerk''' is a [[wikipedia: Peafowl| Peafowl]]-type Zoid (sometimes known as Rainbow Jark), one of over 200 species of biomechanical lifeforms depicted by [[TOMY]]'s ''[[Zoids]]'' model, toy, and media franchise. The Rainbow Jerk is unique to the ''[[Zoids: Genesis]]'' anime and the related ''Genesis'' model line, and is one of the seven protagonist Zoids.
The Rainbow Jerk resembles a hybrid of peacock and crane. Its ornate wing feathers are made of metal Zi and function as melee weapons. Its long range weapon can only be activated when standing, in which the tail plates unfold sideways like a fan and generate an intense ultrasonic pulse that disorients opponents. Zoids who are underground are unaffected, such as [[Molga]] or Viper-types, as are [[Bio Zoids]].
==Battle Story appearances==
The Rainbow Jerk is an ancient Zoid from the ''Era of Technolgy'' found by the thief who infiltrated Kotona's clan.
==Media appearances==
Piloted by Kotona the rainbow jerk is the only protagonist Zoid in Zoids Genesis that can fly. During the series the Rainbow Jerk distinguished itself as an excellent scout or fast transport Zoid. For much of the first half of the series, Digald had no effective counter to it save using [[Bio Raptor]] as anti-aircraft units. This gave the protaganoists a tactical edge over the Digald forces, and allowed them to fight when out numbered. After the [[Bio Ptera]] and [[Bio Raptor Gui]] entered service, Rainbow Jerk had a harder time in aerial combat. Rainbow Jerk was upgraded with the Wind Dancer booster midway through the show, allowing it to temporarily boost its speed and outrun pursuing opponents.
===Video Games===
The Rainbow Jerk, piloted by Kotona, makes an appearance in the DS game ''Super Robot Wars K'', as do most other Zoids and characters featured in the ''Zoids: Genesis'' anime.
===Trading Cards===
The Rainbow Jerk was featured as part of the ''Zoids Scramble'' release of [[Zoids Trading Cards]].

*Assembly required. (Snap-together, no glue needed. Scissors or X-acto knife recommended for trimming off excess plastic bits.)
*The model's colours are moulded into the plastic, and it does not need any paint.
The Rainbow Jerk is the eleventh model in the ''Genesis'' line. The kit comes with five plastic sprues, one, transparent sprue for the eyes and canopy, six separate pieces for the wings, a pre-assembled tail, twelve rubber caps, one pilot and two sticker sheets.
The kit does not need batteries, but on the instructions it says that it needs 2 AAA batteries. Tomy probally scraped the idea after the instructions were printed, if if it had batteries it probally made the eyes glow and the Head-Wing movement automatic. When built the model can be manually positioned into either ''Stationary'' or ''Flight'' mode. The tail could also be manually folded or displayed. The beak can be manually positioned and canopy opened. Sadly the top part of the beak of the Rainbow Jerk is rather loose along with the eyes.
The Rainbow Jerk can be upgraded with the ''Wind Dancer'' booster included in the [[Power Up Parts]] Set A.

A special edition version was released that included the Power Up Part. The kit's color scheme is more anime-specific, having a darker tone than the original. It also comes with a Kotona figurine.
