Story[edit | edit source]

Game[edit | edit source]

When he ran out of money and was starving at Ryube, Riou helped by buying him a dinner and in exchange he joined Riou and stayed at his side until the end of the war. After the war, he traveled north once again in search of the object of his revenge.

Role in the Game[edit | edit source]

Find him collapsed in Ryube and offer to buy him dinner for 3000 potch. If you missed him in Ryube, Rikimaru could be found later in Coronet, again paying for his 3000 potch meal.

Rikimaru is possibly the first character that Riou can recruit as a very early-game physical heavy hitter and tank (If Riou pays for his dinner in Ryube) with his HP skyrocketing as he levels. He wields a two handed sword in battle.

  • Rikimaru is a basic heavy attacker, with a lot of Hit Points. His One-Rune slot limitation does limit his potency however. Double Beat Rune (or Fury Rune if unite attack with Amada). And because of this limitation and partly because as a physical attacker, embedding runes to his weapon that benefits it are almost always a must if the player is using him.
