Zinv is a alien mecha from the OVA series, Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure.
The alien girl D escaped her homeworld in Zinv after the deaths of her friends were caused by the alien Kumu and the mecha robot Himiko. Zinv sat dormant in the Earth Defence Force's headquarters for years until Kazuki Yotsuga awakened it during Rara's assault.
Zinv has many unique abilities revolving around the manipulation of gravimetric forces, including gravitational projectiles, super speed, and crushing enemy mecha. Zinv also comes equipped with a nano-repair system that can fix any damage inflicted. Zinv only responds to Kazuki's Life Sympathy, and sometimes activates itself when Kazuki is not aboard.
Zinv defeats the lesser version of Himiko quite easily, but Himiko's final form takes the upper hand. When D removes the limiter preventing males from piloting it (Kazuki skirts this by BEING the parallel world counterpart to Zinv), Zinv instantly repairs itself and generates Light Hawk Wings. With this newfound power, Kazuki decimates Himiko and creates a black hole, reducing the Rara fortress to nothing.
With the two worlds dangerously close to oblivion, Zinv and Kazuki agree to destroy Zinv, ensuring that both worlds will live on. However, Zinv survives the explosion that consumes it, regenerating at the bottom of the ocean and returning to Kazuki in the third universe. It is decided that Zinv would be used for Kazuki and his friends to explore space.In Tenchi Muyo! GXP', main protagonist, Seina Yamada discovers and bonds with a mecha on the planet Wau which looks identical to Zinv and has the same exact power right down to the Light Hawk Wings. It is revealed that the mecha, dubbed "the Idol," uses an original Royal Tree seed as its power source, one of two that the Chousin goddess Tsunami created.
- Zinv's real name is Jinbu.
- Tenchi Muyo! GXP reveals that while Seina's Idol uses an original Royal Tree seed as its power source, Tsunami sent one other original seed to another world, possibly meaning that is used as the source of Zinv's power.
- There is an uncanny resemblance between Zinv and the Evangelion robot EVA Unit 01.
- The planet D and Zinv come from could be an alternate version of Jurai. This is a likely because only those connected to Jurai have access to the power of the Light Hawk Wings.
