Rovian Kirishima (きりしまロヴィアン Kirishima Rovian) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GO RUSH!! anime and the primary antagonist of the second story arc. She is the queen of the Badloon Castle and the leader of the "Rovian Bandits", an organization of ruffians who strike terror into the aliens in the underground sector of the Alien Residential Area.

Rovian closely resembles Romin Kassidy from Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS. She is a young girl with dark purple hair and violet eyes. She dons blue overalls and a white T-Shirt with a stylized yellow "R" drawn on it, black high boots, and an orange witch's hat accessorized by a red band tied with a yellow star-shaped clip, later revealed to be a Chapeau Alien named Camos in disguise. She also sometimes sports a green sleeveless dress with ornamental designs at the hem, and is seen carrying a white acoustic guitar that serves as her Duel Disk. After entering the "Patience Limit Mode" (ガマンが限界モード, Gaman ga Genkai Mōdo), Rovian's hair and eyes turn bright red.[1]



Rovian is a wandering minstrel of unknown origins, who suddenly appeared in the Alien Residential Area one day. Her music and poems stole the hearts of the residents, and she quickly climbed up the ranks among the aliens and became their human leader, forming the Rovian Bandits. She also invented the Rush Battlers to bring order to the lawless region. Her motive is apparently to bring the fun back into Rush Dueling, which according to her had become soiled due to people using it as a mean to their own selfish ends. Moved by her motive and charisma, Yuna Goha, the president of Goha Company, decided to join her in her endeavors.[1]


Rovian uses a Psychic Bandit Deck, comprised of WIND Psychic monsters and themed around manipulating the number of cards in the opponent's hand to generate advantage, such as inflicting effect damage or increasing ATK in conjunction with Equip Spell Cards.
