The Pterorayse (プテロレイズ, Puteroreizu) is a type of Zoid, a race of mechanical lifeforms from the fictional Zoids universe.
The Pterorayse is the Fuzor partner of the Rayse Tiger. The Zoid can combine with the Rayse Tiger, forming the Jet Rayse Tiger. In this mode, the Rayse Tiger has full flight capabilities. In early prototype sketches and on the pre-release Zoids VS III cover, Pterorayse was to be a white pterosaur with slightly different wings. While the Ptero prefix of the name was kept the same, the Zoid's instruction manual lists it as the larger, more accurate species, Quetzalcoatlus.
Pterorayse was seen and detailed in the DVD released with Brastle Tiger. Oddly, the Pterorayse did not appear in the DVD released with Rayse Tiger, nor was it mentioned in any of the Fanbook EX volumes.
The Pterorayse was featured only as part of the Jet Rayse Tiger fusion in Zoids VS III when playing the game. It was seen seperate from the Rayse Tiger in the introduction to the game.
The Pterorayse was also featured as part of the Zoids Scramble release of Zoids Trading Cards, once as it's own card and again as a component of Jet Rayse Tiger.
The sole release of Pterorayse comes with two frames; one is black the other blue. The motorcycle-style pilot is molded on the black frame. Also included is one sticker sheet, one gold new-style Blox, the Laser Nest "backpack", a cooling fan piece for the laser nest and two small gun parts to fit on the front of the Laser Nest.
