Biography[edit]

Birth of Rush Duels[edit]

Riku and Katsu greeted Yuga at school one day, and Riku was shocked to notice five penalties on Yuga's Duel Disk. As Yuga tried to explain they were like the medals of a challenger, Gavin Sogetsu zoomed over and began admonishing Yuga for his penalties, but was shocked when Yuga revealed he had opened the Duel Disk to install new rules. Riku and Katsu watched as Yuga explained his intentions to Gavin, cheering when he used his "Road" catchphrase, though they were interrupted by class starting. After school that day, Riku tried to trade cards with Katsu, but they were prohibited from doing so un-supervised by a Goha Enterprises Drone. Riku asked Yuga to Duel, but Yuga declined, as he had work to do.[1]

The next day, Yuga told Riku and Katsu about Rush Dueling, the new rules he had managed to install, though before he could say more he was dragged under the desk by Lucidien "Luke" Kallister, who didn't want word of Rush Dueling to be spread. Romin Kassidy suggested Yuga and Luke settle the matter with a Rush Duel, and Riku and Katsu eagerly watched the Duel, with Gavin explaining the rules. Before the Duel, Riku tried to film it, but his smartphone mysteriously deactivated due to Luke's strange power. Riku was enamoured by the speed of the Rush Duel, and he took note of the damage Yuga would be able to inflict to Luke. However, Yuga failed to defeat Luke, who defeated him with "Multistrike Dragon Dragias". Riku was initially worried for Yuga, but had enjoyed the Rush Duel. Yuga then revealed he had livestreamed the Rush Duel with a modified Drone, and Riku joined his fellow students in looking the Duel up on the internet before returning to class.[2]

Rino called Riku asking for any information on Yuga's "Sevens Road Magician", though Riku didn't know much about the card and suggested it was a super rare card.[3]

Maximum[edit]

Riku and Katsu watched Yuga's Duel with Nail Saionji atop the Goha Enterprises Main Office, during which Nail declared his intention to crush Rush Dueling. Hearing this, Riku passionately declared himself a fan of Rush Dueling and was judged by a Goha Enterprises Drone to be part of Yuga's group, receiving five penalties on his Duel Disk, and would receive a sixth if Yuga lost. He cheered Yuga on as he Maximum Summoned "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord" again to defeat Nail, and the penalties on his Duel Disk were erased after the Duel.[4]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

Riku was present when new student teacher Gibumi Purisaki introduced herself to his, Katsu, Yuga, Romin and Mimi's class.[5]

Riku, Katsu and another girl in their class entered the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal as a team, but their team lost seven times and were eliminated from the tournament on the first day.[6]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

After the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, Riku and Katsu were walking to school talking about the robot that had appeared on the moon at the end of the tournament. Yuga arrived and explained it was the Super Rush Robot, much to their interest. Riku discussed how Rush Dueling had nearly been destroyed during the tournament and admitted it had made him love Rush Dueling even more, so Yuga suggested they Rush Duel, but they were told off by Rino and Rayne for trying to Rush Duel on the way to school.[7]
