Rimururu: Character Guide
Appearances and backstory:
Rimururu is an Ainu priestess who dedicates her life to protecting nature. Rimururu’s hero and greatest inspiration is her older sister Nakoruru, who is also passionate about protecting nature. While Rimururu and Nakoruru have an unbreakable bond, they are not biological sisters and Nakoruru adopted Rimururu as a young child. At first Nakoruru tries to dissuade Rimururu from becoming an Ainu priestess but relents when she discovers how pure her younger sister’s intentions are.
While Rimururu is not as natural a fighter, like her elder sister, she is dedicated to her training and hopes to follow in her big sister’s footprints. One of her first missions as a trainee was to clear a forest of evil spirits. Once of her first appearances is in Samurai Showdown III, during which Rimurumu mistook Amakusa as an evil entity and chased him.
While in Samurai Showdown: Warrior’s Rage, Rimururu is captured and imprisoned by Oboro. After Rimururu has spent 20 years in the clutches of Oboro, her older sister Nakoruru enlists the help of the player, who she tasks with finding and rescuing her little sister. Thankfully after Rimururu is reunited with Nakoruru the two sisters are able to seal Oboro’s spirt into his weaponry after he is defeated by the player.
Rimururu is a teenage girl and is significantly younger than Nakoruru.
Samurai Showdown III.
Rimururu is a happy teen who is excited about life and always smiling. Rimururu clearly puts her sister Nakoruru on a pedal stool and wants to grow up to be just like her sister. Rimururu is exceptionally caring and always offers to help Nakoruru, although Nakoruru often keeps her issues to herself as she doesn’t want to burden or to endanger her younger sister.
Through her ice spirit which is referred to as Konru, Rimururu is able to freeze her enemies’ toes. Which is definitely her most unique ability. As most of Rimururu’s other abilities are almost identical to her sister Nakoruru’s powers. However, one of the key differences between the two sisters powers, is that most of Rimururu’s abilities are short range abilities while most of Nakoruru’s abilities are long range abilities.
If you assume that Rimururu’s powers are less effective than her sisters as they are short range powers, think again. As Rimururu executes her abilities quickly and swiftly, many of her abilities are extremely powerful and effective. So it’s well worth choosing to play as Rimururu at least once.
Rimururu’s closest friends and allies include her sister Nakoruru, Haohmaru, Galford and Shizumaru.
Apart from Nakoruru, Rimururu also has two living grandparents. Monashiri, who is her grandmother and Sanouku, who is her grandfather.
So there you have it, everything that you need to know about Rimururu the do-gooder. The powerful, happy go lucky younger sister of one of the series’ main characters Nakoruru.
