Warrior of Love Rainbowman

Rainbowman was originally professional wrestler Takeshi Yamato, but after training in India with the yogi sage Daiba Datta, he gained the ability to turn into Rainbowman.


Originally being a pro wrestler, Rainbowman has incredible strength. Along with that strength he can also change into seven other forms known as "Dashes" which represent different elements.

To transform into Rainbowman, Takeshi says the magic words "Anokutara Sanmyakusanbodai (Supreme Correct Wisdom) Rainbow Dash 7". Then to switch forms Rainbowman says "Rainbow Dash #", # being the number of the form he wishes to switch to.[1]


Dash 1 (ダッシュ1,   Dasshu 1?) is Rainbowman's first Dash form. He has the power of the moon. He is able to deflate himself to crawl through tight spaces and can create thunderstorms.

Dash 3 (ダッシュ3,   Dasshu 3?) is Rainbowman's third Dash form. He has the powers of water and air. He can shoot blasts of water and cool air from his hands, and has the ability to breathe underwater.

Dash 4 (ダッシュ4,   Dasshu 4?) is Rainbowman's fourth Dash form. He has the power of wood. He has aerokinesis and can fire pine needles from his fingers. He also has camouflage abilities.

Dash 5 (ダッシュ5,   Dasshu 5?) is Rainbowman's fifth Dash form. He has the power of gold. He has short distance flight and electrokinesis.

Dash 6 (ダッシュ6,   Dasshu 6?) is Rainbowman's sixth Dash form. He has the power of earth and can use terrakinesis.
