Rino

Rino, known as Rinnosuke Nanahoshi (ななほし りんすけ Nanahoshi Rinnosuke)[5] in the Japanese version, is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. He is a student at Goha #7 Elementary, and the secretary of the Student Council. He and his twin Rayne assist Gavin Sogetsu in enforcing the rules at the school.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Rino.

Rino is a bespectacled fair-skinned boy with hazel eyes and orange hair in a severe hairstyle. He dresses smartly in a grey waistcoat and green sleeveless, neck-less topover a white shirt, blue tie, and grey shorts, with knee-length blue socks and brown slip-on shoes. Rino wears rectangular spectacles with a red half-frame.

When Gavin Duels using Sogetsu Style, Rino dons Kuroko stagehand clothing; a charcoal veil with a black band, a grey top and pants, black tunic and shoes, and a red sash.[6] He also wears it when aiding Romin in cooking.[7] As a Goha Enterprises employee, Rino wears the uniform worn by the rank-and-file employees; a sleeveless grey knee-length jacket with the Goha Enterprises logo over his heart, a short-sleeved blue collared shirt over along-sleeved charcoal one, charcoal pants, black shoes and a black belt with a Goha Enterprises logo for the buckle.

After being transferred to Goha #6 Elementary, Rino wears their uniform; a largely blue tracksuit with a white trim and the character for "6" emblazoned on the back in red. While laboring at the Abandoned Dorm, Rino also wears a white hard-hat and gloves, and a white scarf loosely around his neck, as well as black boots.

Personality[edit]

Rino is very devoted to Gavin and his duties, and he fiercely defends their relationship when he perceives Yuga as mocking them. He attempts to convince Gavin to abandon his interest in Rush Dueling and return to his duties, showing satisfaction at the notion that Gavin would not being dealing with Yuga and his friends again.[6] However, he comes to like Rush Dueling and aids in efforts to prevent Yuga from being disqualified during his Duel with Roa Kassidy, while also reasoning that they should assist him against Nail Saionji due to the matter affecting all of them. He confides to Rayne that he likes how lively Gavin has seemed since meeting Yuga.

Rino looks up to his twin sister Rayne, though he also gently teases her over her crush on Yuga. However he is embarrassed by his sister's tendency to fall in love for boys and obsess over them, and when Rayne turns on their group to take the place of Galian Townsend after falling for him, he is motivated not only to bring his sister to her senses, but also to prevent his friends from discovering her true motivations for fear of embarrassment. Ironically, Rino ends up falling for Romin in a similar manner to his sister falling for Yuga and Galian when she compliments him.

Biography[edit]

Birth of Rush Duels[edit]

Rino and Rayne accompanied Gavin as he interrogated and lectured Yuga Ohdo for his numerous penalties and attempts to install new Dueling rules into his Duel Disk. Class interrupted Gavin before he could finish, so he told Yuga to meet them after school. However, Yuga did not show up, though Gavin spotted him leaving with Luke and left to look for him without Rino and Rayne.[8]

Rino and Rayne joined Gavin to watch Yuga and Luke's Rush Duel during recess the next day. After Luke used his power to deactivate everyone's phones, Rino and Rayne provided Gavin with textbooks to assist him in explaining the Pauli effect to everyone present. Rino also looked up the Rush Duel on the internet after Yuga revealed he'd livestreamed the Duel.[9]

After Yuga dragged Gavin out of the office one day, Rino and Rayne held an intervention for Gavin, convincing him to focus on his duties rather than Rush Dueling. Yuga instead suggested that he and Gavin Rush Duel to settle the matter; Rush Dueling would be prohibited if Gavin won, but allowed if Yuga won and Gavin would have to step down as Student Council President. Rino was shocked by the wager, but Gavin had to focus on his duties for most of the day, with Rino and Rayne supporting him. Despite this, Gavin still honored his promise to Duel Yuga and Rino and Rayne assisted Gavin for his Sogetsu Style Dueling; Rino played Gavin's cards for him. As Rayne and Gavin began arguing, Yuga started laughing, angering Rino as he believed Yuga was mocking him. Yuga clarified he was enjoying the Duel and he encouraged Gavin to enjoy the Duel, and Gavin took his cards from Rayne and Dueled on his own; Rino and Rayne explaining his card effects for him. Yuga was able to defeat Gavin despite Gavin Summoning "Yamiruler". As he had promised, Gavin stepped down as Student Council President, but to Rino's joy, won the emergency election and returned to his duties.[6]

Rino and Rayne went to the RoaRomin concert in Big Seven Arena and leapt onto the stage to play Gavin's cards when he Dueled Romin Kassidy, though Gavin reminded them he was using Neo Sogetsu Style now. They instead cheered for Gavin from the sidelines, but he was defeated after Romin entered a state of frenzied hunger due to the catering provided by Saburamen, Nick Yagi and Sushiko Maki.[10] After the Duel, Saburamen, Nick and Sushiko apologized to Gavin for their role in his loss and Romin tried to convince Yuga not to Duel Roa Kassidy, though still accepted Roa's challenge. As Roa Dueled, Rino noted how Roa's actions differed from his earlier words. During the Duel it was revealed that Yuga's ace monster "Sevens Road Magician" had been given to him by a Duelist who was disqualified from the 666th Goha Dueling Tournament, and Roa suggested the Duelist had been disqualified because "Sevens Road Magician" was an illegal card. Although Gavin initially doubted Yuga, Luke convinced him that he wouldn't cheat and Gavin agreed that someone who didn't respect rules wouldn't want to make new ones, much to Rino's joy. Luke rallied them to search for information on "Sevens Road Magician", and Rino suggested asking the students of Goha #7 Elementary. He and Rayne rung Riku Endo and Katsu Kobayakawa among other students, but were unable to find any information on "Sevens Road Magician", and Rino returned to the stage with Gavin and Saburamen to report their failure to Luke.[11] Yuga drew "Sevens Road Magician", which would result in his disqualification, but then a Relic emerged from the ground and projected Otes, the Duelist who had given Yuga "Sevens Road Magician". The Newspaper Club then arrived with footage proving Otes had been disqualified for being a Goha employee and "Sevens Road Magician" was confirmed to be legal. Yuga and Roa continued their Duel with the title of King of Duels on the line. To Rino's shock, Roa was able to reduce Yuga to 500 LP, though Yuga was able to comeback and defeat Roa. After the Duel, the Relic sank back into the ground.[12]

Maximum[edit]

Gavin asked for Rino and Rayne's assistance in helping Romin cook curry rice for Luke. Rino and Rayne assembled the necessary ingredients for Romin, though Romin's inexperience at cooking led to a dust explosion, forcing Rino to brush Gavin down. Gavin had the twins micromanage Romin cooking the rice and they managed to successfully cook that, but they were required to step in again to help with the curry, especially after Romin accidentally put gunpowder in the curry, covering the twins. Romin eventually produced a blue curry, which Rayne suggested she try first to spare them the taste, though Romin proclaimed it delicious and served the Student Council portions each. Before the apprehensive Student Council could try the curry, Yuga and Luke arrived and Luke smelled the curry and devoured Gavin's portion, also calling it delicious and declaring himself moved by the curry. Rino finally tried the curry himself, admitted he had worried it would taste as strange as it looked. After Luke dubbed it "Dragias Curry" due to the color, Romin added more spices to the curry to simulate the second attack of "Multistrike Dragon Dragias", but instead she filled the entire apartment with blue curry.[7]

Some time afterwards, Rino received a penalty on his Duel Disk.[13] Rino and Rayne went to the Road Laboratory, where Yuga explained that they and all his other friends had been penalized due to his challenge by Goha Duel Overseer Nail Saionji to retrieve the data of Kaizo, and if anyone in Yuga's group of friends lost a Duel, they would all be penalized and their accounts deleted if they received six penalties. The penalty had occurred when Mimi Imimi was defeated by her son Yosh, as Mimi had inadvertently become considered one of Yuga's friends. Despite the circumstances, everyone present agreed to help Yuga, given that all of their accounts were on the line as Rino pointed out, but then Yuga, Luke and Gavin were dropped into a pit leading to the Garden of Curiosity, with Romin and Saburamen also falling in.[14]

After Rino received another penalty on his Duel Disk, Gavin later requested Rino and Rayne's aid in finding information on Maximum Summoning, which Nail had used to defeat Yuga, but they were all unable to find anything; Rayne pointing out that if the Summoning method was as new as Gavin claimed there was likely very little information on it. To Rino's surprise, Gavin suddenly had an epiphany and rushed off, leaving Rino and Rayne at Goha #7 Elementary. Rino later received three more penalties on his Duel Disk.[15] Rino's penalties were later erased after Yuga defeated Nail.[16]

Goha #6 Elementary[edit]

Rino and Rayne were assigned to cover Student Council work for Gavin while he attended the Rush Duel Training Camp, and to join him once it was complete on the third day. As they ran to the Training Camp they discussed how Gavin had left them to do the work and Yuga's influence on Gavin, and Rayne's overly-detailed notations of Yuga's flaws led Rino to realize that his sister had a crush on Yuga. Rino then heard the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club working nearby, and he explained who they were to Rayne. Rayne accidentally fell into the pit after the Heavy Cavalry students mentioned they had dealt with other Goha #7 Elementary students, forcing Rino to reveal himself as well. One of the students, Galian Townsend, asked them why they were listening, and though Rino tried to defuse the situation, Galian refused to let them past unless they Dueled him, but they would have to join the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club if they lost. Rayne refused, prompting Galian to accuse them of cowardice, much to Rino's anger, and Rayne accepted his challenge, Rino holding her cards for her as she Dueled with Sogetsu style. Rayne started with her usual cautious strategy, but Galian's "Drilling Mandrill" proved to be the perfect counter to it and Rayne only barely survived the turn by changing Galian's monsters to Defense Position. Rayne was able to Summon two copies of "Etraynze the Shadow Flower Ninja", though Galian believed she would be unable to damage his LP that turn. Rayne and Rino proved him wrong by using "Powerful Pierce!!" to allow her "Etraynze" to inflict piercing battle damage, though she was unable to defeat Galian that turn. Galian was able to revive "Drilling Mandrill" on his next turn and flip "Etraynze" face-down, defeating Rayne with the effect of "Mandrill", and he welcomed the twins to the Heavy Cavalry Club.[17]

Rino and Rayne were forced to transfer to Goha #6 Elementary and were claimed to be on vacation at the hot springs with their family.[18][19] They accompanied the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club to the old Goha #6 Elementary campus to expose the Dark Rush Duel Tournament, but they were not allowed to contact Gavin and the other #7 Elementary students who had been caught as well until Asana Mutsuba defeated Yuga with a Maximum Summon, and they tearfully ran over to reunite with Gavin, explaining how they had also been forced to transfer to Goha #6 Elementary.[19]

The harsh morning ritual at the beginning of the school day at Goha 6th proved to be not to Gavin's tastes, and he complained that it would impair his Student Council duties, only to be reminded by Galian that he was no longer a Student Council President and sending him into a spasm that Rino dubbed "Presidency Withdrawal Syndrome". Rayne snapped Gavin out of his daze by hitting him with "Yamiruler the Dark Delayer", though in her desperation she forgot to use honorifics when she did until Rino reminded her, though Gavin still thanked her regardless for reminding him he was still the heir to Sogetsu Style. Yuga asked Rino and Rayne about what Galian had been looking for when they found him, and at the end of the school day decided to challenge them to a Rush Duel. Gavin challenged Galian to avenge Rayne's loss, managing to gain an early lead with "Yamiruler", but Galian changed it face-down to dispel its effect. Galian then revived "Shield Boring Kong" instead of "Drilling Mandrill", destroying "Yamiruler" and gaining ATK as Galian attacked Gavin's "Yurushima the Hermit" instead, sending Gavin into another seizure. Fortunately Gavin was able to change "Shield Boring Kong" to Defense Position, and Gavin defeated Galian on his next turn, destroying Galian's Heavy Cavalry GG03, and Galian left Goha #6 Elementary as a result. However, Asana prevented them from leaving and sent them to the Abandoned Dorm due to Yuga and Kaizo distributing Roads across the campus that she viewed as stomping on their traditions, though Yuga explained that he'd wanted to be sent there to uncover the secrets of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club in the mine at the dorm.[20]

While they worked at the mine, Galian joined them in their labors, having decided to start from the basics. When they broke for lunch, Yuga explained to them that the high security only applied to them, but not to Seatbastian and Kaizo, who he had sent to find Nail to ask where Asana had received her Maximum Monsters while disguising Roads as them, though they had to stop the oblivious Luke from trying to get a massage from Seatbastian. Later that day an alarm went off, causing the group to realize that Kaizo and Seatbastian had escaped successfully, and Rino and his friends seized their chance to escape into the mine, using their Duel Disk lights to see in the darkness.[21] As they moved through the mine, Yuga revealed that he was using Kaizo's spare parts to trace their steps, though it was to no avail as Luke had been thoughtlessly picking them up to make a monster. They soon began to tire, though fortunately Hunt arrived with Kaizo, having been sent by Nail to help them find a cache of prototype Duel Disks buried in the outskirts of Goha City that Nail theorized could explain Asana's Maximum. To Rino's confusion, Hunt began sniffing around, which Gavin explained was how his excavation ability worked, and his sneeze opened an underground hallway.[22]

As they headed down the hallway, Rayne slipped in a puddle, much to Rino's alarm, though Yuga was able to catch her and Rino noticed that his sister was becoming infatuated again. The hallway led them to the Heavy Cavalry Colosseum, where Chevelle, Trapigeon and an exhausted Galian were waiting for them. Galian challenged them to a Duel to prevent them from passing with his place at Goha #6 Elementary on the line, but he passed out and Rayne caught him, then challenged them in his place. Realizing that Rayne had fallen for Galian after he praised her as having a strong master, a mortified Rino asked to be allowed to Duel Rayne to prevent her from embarrassing herself, and Gavin arranged for Luke to serve as his Sogetsu style attendant. Rayne gained an early lead with the effects of her two "Jasmine the Shadow Flower Festival" by switching Rino's Set monsters to Attack Position and assembling three of her "Etraynze", though Rino was able to remain in the game. Terrified that his friends would realize Rayne's true motivations, he exploited Rayne's field to retrieve the monsters he needed to Summon and activate the effect of "Gatling the Shadow Flower Shinobi", destroying Rayne's "Etraynzes" and depleting most of her LP, trying to make her realize that Yuga and Galian wouldn't fight over her and that she was just deluded by fantasy. Although Rayne was able to Tribute Summon "Garland the True Shadow Flower Ninja" and revive two "Etraynze", Rino manipulated his "Gatling" using his Trap Cards to end the Duel in a DRAW, finally causing Rayne to realize that she was falling for boys without any consideration of their feelings. After the Duel, Rino reassured Rayne that they were in their struggles together and she apologized to him, but in an ironic twist of fate, Rino began crushing on Romin after she praised his kindness.[5] As there had been no victor, Chevelle insisted on another Duel, and Luke accepted his challenge as he felt responsible for falling for Asana's trap, though Trapigeon ended up Dueling Luke instead of Chevelle, his Trap Cards quickly putting pressure on Luke. Fortunately Chevelle and Trapigeon began arguing after Chevelle made a move on his own and Luke was eventually able to snap out of his funk and Tribute Summon "Illusion Strike Dragon Miragias" and defeat Trapigeon as a result of Chevelle's error, allowing the group to continue on.[23]

Rino and his friends finally reached the mine, where Hunt quickly uncovered a prototype Duel Disk. As Yuga and Hunt dug up enough prototype Duel Disks for Yuga to extract three Duel ID cards and add them to his Deck, Rino and Rayne asked if it wasn't strange that Maximum Monsters could be found in the Duel Disks, and Gavin and Yuga explained to them how Maximum Monsters had been created originally, theorizing that Asana had likely created her own Maximum with Duel ID cards from the mine. Asana and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club then arrived and she confirmed Yuga's theory, informing them that most of the Duel ID cards in the Duel Disks couldn't be used due to their age. Asana challenged Yuga to another Duel, agreeing to allow the students of Goha #6 Elementary to Rush Duel freely if she lost as she had when they last Dueled, but with the condition that Rush Dueling would be banned at all elementary schools in Goha City if she won. Yuga was barely able to fend off "Wurm Ex-Cavator", and Asana revealed that she knew Yuga was planning on using "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" against her and urged him to Summon it, though Yuga confirmed that he'd added the three Duel ID cards to his Deck and was gambling on being able to recreate "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord". To Rino's joy, Yuga succeeded in drawing and Maximum Summoning "Magnum Overlord", and Rino celebrated the ATK it was able to gain when Yuga powered it up and attacked "Wurm Ex-Cavator". However, Asana was able to make the ATK of their Maximum Monsters equal, and as they destroyed one another Asana and Yuga's Maximum cards began to disintegrate; Gavin ruling that whoever's Maximum was destroyed first would take the ATK of the other.[24] Eventually the two Maximums disintegrated at the same time, allowing the Duel to continue, but as Asana pushed Yuga into a corner, her Heavy Cvaalry R6 began to break down due to its parts no longer being in production; Asana had made a deal with Goha Enterprises to have the parts remanufactured if she was able to crush Rush Dueling. Yuga was able to survive and bring out "Steel Mech Lord Mirror Innovator", which could increase its ATK based on the Levels of the cards that shared its Type in his Graveyard, though Rino noted that the Machine "Magnum Overlord" cards weren't in Yuga's Graveyard. Fortunately Yuga was able to change the Type of "Mirror Innovator" to Spellcaster and strengthen it that way, defeating Asana and destroyed R6 despite the efforts of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club. After the Duel, Yuga uncovered a room containing R0, a mobile Duel Device created by Mutsuba Heavy Machinery that had been modified by its creators, convincing Asana to accept Rush Duels and the idea of modification.[25]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

As a result of Asana's defeat, Rino and his friends were allowed to return to Goha #7 Elementary, but he and Gavin were shocked to find the Student Council had become disheveled while they were away. As he suggested they help fix the mess, he noticed Rayne staring off into the distance and had to encourage her to assist them.[26] Rayne eventually confided to Rino that she intended to leave the Student Council and the Sogetsu Style, as she believed she was holding Gavin back, and though Rino was aware that she was simply seeing the situation more dramatically than usual again, he allowed his sister to make her own decision, though he questioned it after she told Gavin and he challenged her to a Rush Duel over the situation. Rino, Yuga and Romin attended the Duel, and Rino was mortified by his sister's mocking of Gavin throughout the Duel as she gained an advantage over him, eventually confiding his sister's dramatic tendencies to Yuga, Romin and Gavin. Gavin was able to make a comeback and bring out a new ace monster, "Icezark the Unequaled", finally causing Rayne to realize that she had been wrong, and Rino returned her kuroko uniform to her that she had thrown away as Gavin defeated her. Despite her loss and the fact that she had made her decision to leave Gavin's service while she wasn't in her right mind, Rayne still did so, much to Rino's dismay.[27]

Gavin, Romin and Luke entered the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal as Team Lukeking Lukekings, and Rino tailed Gavin throughout the first day of the tournament. He watched Yuga's Duel with Hunt, where Hunt Maximum Summoned "Great Imperial Dinocarriage Dynarmix", a Maximum Monster he had created from Duel ID cards he had mined in Maximum Mountain, and was surprised when Rayne revealed she had offered her services to Nail following her departure. Yuga was able to defeat Hunt with his own new Maximum, "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan", and after the Duel Rino told Rayne he was glad to see she was okay. Hunt then revealed he had been assisted in excavating the Duel ID cards that he had used by an individual called "Goha 66".[28]

Rino and his friends decided to investigate Goha 66; Yuga, Nail and Roa searching for any mention of them in the Goha Enterprises database and Gavin, Romin and Luke heading to Maximum Mountain on the second day of the tournament. Aware that they would likely need backup, Rino sent a message to Nick Yagi via arrow, sending him, Saburamen, Sushiko, and the Newspaper and Post-Apocalyptic Clubs to aid Gavin, Romin and Luke.[29]

Rino watched the finals of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal between Gavin and Yuga's team on the third day of the tournament. After Romin defeated Roa, Gavin Dueled Nail, but to Rino's dismay he adopted a rapper-styled persona he dubbed "Gakuting" in an attempt to win Rayne back to his side. As a result of his actions, Rino believed that Gavin had brought shame to Sogetsu Style and would have to be removed from the style, telling Gavin so as he supported him after "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" pushed him into a corner. The power in the arena suddenly went out and once it returned, Gavin vowed to Duel in a way that would not shame his family, requesting Rino's assistance in redressing in his kimono. Gavin almost managed to defeat "Yggdrago" by powering up his "Kachisuzaku the Unequaled", but Nail prevented the destruction of "Yggdrago" and destroyed all of Gavin's monsters on his next turn. Facing with a direct attack from "Yggdrago", Gavin used "The Three Dark Rulers" to end the Duel in a DRAW. As Rino looked over Gavin in concern, Rayne joined him at Gavin's side and admitted he had Dueled in a distinguished manner. As she began to return to Nail, Rino asked if serving Sogetsu Style hadn't brought her immense pride, and to his joy she agreed that it had and asked to be released from Nail's service, returning to Gavin and Rino.[30]

Rino and Rayne watched Yuga and Luke's Duel. Although Rino was shocked when Yuga Maximum Summoned "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan" against Luke, he believed Luke could overcome it and was delighted to be proven right when Luke was able to survive Yuga's attack with his "7 Chance" Trap. The Solid Vision then began to fail as it had during Gavin and Nail's Duel, which Tyler Getz revealed to be due to the Goha Duel Server being hacked. Goha #5 Elementary's Space Operations Duel Squadron revealed that the Goha Duel Server was carved into the moon, and that the Super Rush Robot that made up the Rush Duel program was being physically eroded by Goha Enterprises Drones in an effort to uninstall Rush Dueling.[31] Otes was decided to be the one responsible and it was revealed that the hack could only be stopped by stopping the Duel, but Yuga and Luke decided to continue and Rayne looked around in shock at the support for the Duel. To Rayne's shock, Luke was able to destroy "Vast Vulcan" with "Steelstrike Dragon Metagias". After significant back-and-forth, Luke almost defeated Yuga with "Multistrike Dragon Dragias" and Rino braced himself for the end of Rush Dueling, but Yuga was able to return Luke's monsters to his hand and revive "Sevens Road Magician". However Luke was able to Summon "Dragias" again, and Rayne and Rino noted that a newly Summoned monster could still attack, allowing Luke to defeat Yuga. After the Duel, Rush Dueling was successfully uninstalled, but Yuga and Nail had been reinstalling it the entire Duel, this time in a Super Rush Robot constructed from space debris that couldn't be easily eroded. Rino then watched Luke's coronation as the King of Duels.[32]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

After the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, Rayne returned to her position as vice-president of the Goha #7 Elementary Student Council. Rino told Yuga off for trying to Rush Duel on the way to school one morning as it was forbidden.[33]

The Goha Siblings, the true Goha Presidents, returned to Earth and challenged Yuga and his friends to Duels with the Super Rush Robot held hostage by Forced Gymnastics Armaments;they would disarm an armament each time one of them was defeated, but Yuga would become a Goha employee if he and his friends lost six times.[34] After Romin lost to Yuka Goha, Luke loudly proclaimed that they didn't have anything to worry about with the King of Duels on their side, prompting Rayne to tell him to be quiet while Gavin was doing Student Council work. As Gavin finished, Shinken Tsurugi and Kotetsuki Mendo from their school's Kendo Club arrived and asked Gavin to substitute for them in the weekend's kendo tournament, as they had been injured when they misnamed Tiger for help while asking her to train them. Gavin agreed to do so, and Rino and Rayne accompanied him to the Goha Martial Arts Stadium, but were shocked to find it deserted and only Yuran Goha and his Proprietress there, who challenged the group to a Kendo Rush Duel. Gavin accepted the challenge, choosing Rino to serve as his kendo player, while Rayne remained on the sidelines. During the Duel, Rino struck in time with Gavin's moves against Proprietress. To Rino's shock, the passive Yuran began to speak for himself, claiming he'd learned all he needed to about Gavin. Yuran quickly closed the gap in LP between him and Gavin, then used "Sword & Shield" to switch the ATK and DEF of his "Millennium Shield" and Gavin's "Kimeluna the Lunar Dark Decider", defeating him, while Proprietress successfully struck down Rino, putting their score against the Goha Siblings tied at 2-2.[35]

Yuga was also defeated by Yuo Goha, who used a new Spell called "Fusion" to defeat him. The following day Gavin called the Goha #7 and #6 Student Councils to the A.I. Restaurant for a meeting on countering "Fusion". After the introduced themselves and ordered, Gavin and Goha #6 secretary Osamu Rojihara argued over the order of their schools in the title of Gavin's presentation until Rino Rayne told Gavin off, but to their shock all their food had been eaten and Janko Entant noted his vice-president Botan Kenzaki was likely responsible. Though Janko warned them not to go easy on Botan, Rino and Rayne decided to forgive Botan and order again, as they were curious about what would happen if Botan wasn't punished. Throughout the meeting Rino was dismayed by his sister's behaviour leaking out, including her praise of Yuga and her retention of an observation diary about the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, and after Romin arrived and Botan to ate all their food again, Romin called Kaizo to watch Botan after they ordered again, Rayne and Rino deciding to help him watch Botan. The repeated distractions allowed Botan to eat everyone's food again despite everyone watching her, with only Kaizo seeing what had happened. As Rino and Rayne held the terrified Drone down and tried to learn what he'd seen, Rayne saw Osamu without glasses and promptly started fantasizing, much to Rino's exasperation.[36]

Goha Employee[edit]

Yuga succeeded in protecting the Super Rush Robot, and he joined Goha Enterprises as an employee as the Goha Siblings had initially asked to work on Maximum Monsters. Gavin also became a Goha employee after Nail, who had resigned from Goha, refused to rejoin the company, so Rino and Rayne became Goha employees as well under Gavin in the General Headquarters' Department of Internal Discipline, Serious Division, enforcing rules at the Goha Enterprises Main Office. Rino and Rayne were overjoyed by the distinguished figure Gavin cut as a Goha employee. After Gavin told Yuga off for riding his Duel Bicycle in the corridors, they met Flash Umiko, who had commentated the finals of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal and who was in charge of electrical fixtures at the company. Despite this responsibility and the manner she had conducted herself at the tournament, Umiko proved to be sloppy and abrasive in her work, so Rino, Rayne and Gavin confronted her after her octopus wiring overloaded the power of the building. Gavin challenged Umiko to a Rush Duel to get her to improve her attitude, and Rino and Rayne restored power to the room they were Dueling in. Rino was overjoyed to see Gavin use "Yamiruler the Dark Delayer" to push Umiko into a corner, but Rayne noted Umiko had misplayed her "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn" Trap Card and Rino mocked her for not reading her cards. To their shock Umiko Fusion Summoned "Showering Infergyo" and almost defeated Gavin, claiming her dream was to take over Goha Enterprises with her own business, an ambition that shocked Rino and he asked how she would accomplish her plan, though Umiko claimed she didn't know yet, much to his exasperation. Gavin made his own comeback by Fusion Summoning "Yamiterasu the Divine Delayer" and Umiko tried to use her other "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn" properly, but she misplayed again due to having forgotten about the lockdown effect of "Yamiterasu". Defeated, Umiko went to a cliffside with Rino, Rayne and Gavin and admitted she needed to work harder to achieve her dream. Rayne told Umiko the scales had fallen from her eyes and body, but Umiko (who wore a footballfish costume) didn't take kindly to her remark and calling it disgusting before jumping into the sea and swimming away.[37]

Rino and Rayne aided Gavin in giving the students of Goha #5 Elementary a tour of the Goha Enterprises Main Office, but quickly learned one group had gone missing and informed Gavin. Braun Honya explained it was likely their school's Dueling Insects Club and Schrödinger Nekoyama noted they were likely trying to cause trouble, causing Rinnnosuke to realize it was likely the club their cousin Nanaho belonged to. Informing Rayne, he was proven correct when they found Nanaho in Yuga's office trying to steal his "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan", though he was surprised to learn she had given Yuga a fear of ladybugs when they were friends. To everyone's shock Yuga returned with Kaizo incorporated into a Road he intended to use to blow up the Goha Enterprises building due to his fear of Nanaho's ladybug hat, though fortunately Luke talked him into Rush Dueling Nanaho instead. Nanaho's ladybug monsters eventually scared Yuga into fleeing the Rush Duel, but he returned after a power outage and Maximum Summoned a new Maximum, "Supreme Flagship Magnum Overlord", explaining that it had been transformed from "Vast Vulcan" due to the Pauli effect of Luke's wristwatch. Yuga defeated Nanaho, learning her hat was just a hat and not a real ladybug, and Nanaho left with her friends, claiming they would see her again.[2]

A recreation time event was planned at Goha Enterprises, with the theme "Become a zombie". When the event began, Rino alerted Rayne and Gavin to the crisis. They headed to the Gohanium Section to find it overwhelmed by "zombies" and Rino spotted Mimi being cornered. Mimi told them to leave, warning them they would be "zombified" if they lost a Duel to the zombies before being overwhelmed, and Rino agreed it wasn't safe to remain. They headed for an elevator to get to the helipad, but Gavin realized it was likely filled with zombies and they escaped just in time. Rino noted the zombies didn't seem to have spread to the upper floors, but Masahiko, Toshihiko and Bochi then attacked them in a hallway, and Yosh arrived and knocked his friends down, apologizing for failing to save them. When the rest of the horde arrived with Mimi at their head, Masahiko and Bochi grabbed the distracted Rino, and he, Rayne and Yosh urged Gavin to escape. Rino was zombified once Gavin left and joined the horde, emerging on the helipad to find Gavin there as one of the last "survivors". According to Yuga's orders as the "Zombie King", Zo Ikitenai challenged Gavin to a Rush Duel, Gavin vowing to Duel all the zombies if he had to. After Gavin defeated Zo, Rino and the other "zombies" applauded his victory, and once the event ended at 3pm, Rino removed his makeup, admitting to the Zombie Duel Club that he'd enjoyed scaring people.[38]

Deck[edit]

Rino uses a Shadow Flower Deck composed of Plant monsters and a high number of Trap Cards. His strategies and Deck composition are very similar to his sister's; Setting monsters at the beginning of the Duel and playing defensively, but his ace monster "Gatling the Shadow Flower Shinobi" focuses on destroying his opponent's monsters rather than Rayne's strategy of Summoning multiple high-Level monsters.
