Sunbow's Jinx wore her 1987 outfit and had spiky black hair, and the dragon on her tunic was larger and centered on her chest. In the series, she only fought well when blindfolded or with her eyes closed. The Reel FX films made her a capable fighter whether blind or sighted, and used an outfit based on her 2004 figure.

AGENT JINX comes from the same ninja clan that produced both SNAKE EYES and STORM SHADOW. She is, in fact, the cousin of STORM SHADOW. After intensive training in the occult martial arts she came to the conclusion that her size and relative strength put her at a disadvantage in a combat situation. To overcome this lack, AGENT JINX worked on raising the craft of infiltration to an art form. She can bypass enemy listening posts, slip through their outer perimeter wire, worm her way past the sentries, avoid the infrared sensors, penetrate their command bunker, capture digital imagery of battle plans, and escape without being detected. If she can plant a delayed explosive charge in the officer's latrine that is considered a bonus.
"Being a ninja is twenty percent martial arts and eighty percent being plain good at sneaking up behind people."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Cobra Slice (04). Item #55965.
