Noodle Sorako is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. She works at a ramen store in the Garden of Providence, and claims to be an alien from the Menmen system of the Ra Nebula. She bears a resemblance to Finger Chikako, Sweets Kakoko, and Flash Umiko.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Sorako.

Sorako is a petite young girl with a very pale yellowish complexion, blond hair, and aqua eyes with blue pupils and yellow star-shaped highlights. Her hairstyle and clothes are themed around a stereotypical flying saucer; her hair surrounds the rest of her head in a ring and she has a small red orb surrounded by a white ring attached to her forehead. She wears a light grey dress with patterns of gold stars and red lines on the chest and a bulging skirt shaped like the bottom of a flying saucer, with yellow orbs attached to the base, and a metal garment around her neck resembling a pan with a studded collar which has a hidden panel on the front that can open to reveal several dials detailing Sorako's current state. She also wears light grey long gloves and boots with red orbs surrounded by white rings attached to the toes and fingers.

Sorako is capable of retracting her head and limbs within her dress, in which state she fully resembles a flying saucer and is capable of flight.

Personality[edit]

Sorako is a chirpy and cheerful young lady with little notice or care for her strange behavior outside of choosing an Earth name so that people could pronounce it. She commonly utters beeps in her sentences and stereotypical alien speech, particularly when startled. Her motives are considerably unknown; she lives without complaint underground in the Garden of Providence in a store largely frequented by Goha Corporation employees and does not confirm whether she is working for or even knows Nail Saionji. She casually offers to show Menzaburo Oomori around the galaxy having only just met him and is excited by passion and potential she sees in humans.

When saddened, Sorako becomes significantly more mournful, though she does her best to brush such feelings aside, encouraging Menzaburo not to worry about her during their Duel and reassuring him when she leaves Earth that she will always remember him and his passion.

Etymology[edit]

Sorako's name is written with characters that are usually read as Uchūko (lit. "space child"), but it has a non-standard pronunciation that makes it sound like 空子 ("sky child") instead. She says this is simply something she picked for herself for the convenience of humans, and that her real name is unpronounceable for them.

Biography[edit]

One day while working at the Space House, Sorako met Yuga Ohdo, Menzaburo Oomori, Tatsuhisa "Luke" Kamijo, Romin Kirishima and Gakuto Sogetsu, surprising them in her ship form before emerging and introducing herself to them before serving them ramen. All of them enthusiastically liked Sorako's ramen, though Sorako claimed there was much more tasty ramen out in the galaxy and offered to show the ramen-obsessed Menzaburo what she meant. After her customers ate, Sorako challenged them to a Duel, which Menzaburo accepted. Although Sorako quickly established her "Outer Space" Field Spell Card, Menzaburo gained an early lead over her with his "Masked Fiery Noodle Jonin Gockboot" by inflicting piercing battle damage, causing Sorako to begin glitching. Sorako admitted that her ship was powered by her LP, but encouraged Menzaburo not to give it any thought, bringing out "Cosmic String Noodle-Druidess" and destroying "Gockboot", then Summoning "Galaxy Narutorolla" to finish him off. Menzaburo's friends then encouraged him not to worry about whether he shoudl defeat Sorako or not, particularly Yuga, who Sorako was shocked to see contained an astonishing amount of potential. Regaining his passion, Menzaburo blocked the attack of "Narutorolla" and survived the turn, summoning a new ace monster on his next turn; "Masked Fiery Noodle Jonin Kaedama Gockboot". Although Sorako attempted to blunt Menzaburo's efforts with her Trap Cards, the effect of "Kaedama Gockboot" and Menzaburo's Spell Cards proved ot be too much for her, and Menzaburo defeated her. With her energy drained, Sorako explained she would have to return to her mothership to recharge and promised that she would never forget Menzaburo or his passion, bidding the five humans goodbye as her ship arrived to retrieve her.[1]

Deck[edit]

Sorako uses a Pyro Deck that is composed of monsters that are based in appearance on a mix of aliens and ramen ingredients. The strategy of the Deck revolves around the usage of the "Outer Space" Field Spell; her Effect Monsters require it to be active to activate their effects. Unusually, all of her Pyro monsters are DARK monsters.
