Rainbow Cotton is a 2000 rail shooter video game developed and published by Success exclusively for the Dreamcast. The fifth installment in the Cotton franchise, it is a follow-up to Panorama Cotton (1994) and the first 3D entry in the series. In the game, players assume the role of the titular young witch who, alongside her fairy companion Silk, sets out on her broomstick on a quest to defeat the evil demon Tweed and retrieve a stolen Willow candy from York Country. Its gameplay is similar to Panorama Cotton, consisting of shooting mixed with role-playing game elements while flying through 3D environments on a predetermined track.

The staff of Rainbow Cotton mostly consisted of new members at Success, with development headed by Takato Yoshinari. The game was met with mixed to negative reception from critics, most of which reviewed it as a import title; reviewers unanimously praised the colorful 3D visual presentation, but drew comparison with both Space Harrier and Panzer Dragoon due to its gameplay, which was heavily criticized by many for the frustrating controls. The title has never been officially released outside Japan, although a fan translation exists
