Reiko Hinomoto (日ノ本零子) is the main protagonist and a playable character in both the original Rumble Roses in 2004 and sequel Rumble Roses XX in 2006.

She fights under the moniker of "The Zero Fighter". Her Japanese voice actress is Noriko Hikada. She was dubbed by Bianca Allen in the first game, with Michelle Ruff voicing her in the sequel.[2][3]


"Mom, if you're up there listening... I've come all this way to debut in the country where you died wrestling. I haven't heard from sis... since she told me she was coming here... to enter the Rumble Rose. Maybe I'll find out what happened to her when I enter the tournament. Mom... I'll become the greatest wrestler the world has ever seen, and make you proud! If you're listening, watch over me... And sis."

- Reiko's prayer (from her Prologue)[4]

From a young age, Reiko grew up learning martial arts from her mother, the famous female wrestler Kamikaze Rose. However, when Reiko was only nine years old, she died in the ring under mysterious circumstances while on tour in America. Five years later, Reiko's older sister Fujiko set out uncover the truth behind their mother's death, only to go missing herself, leaving the then fourteen year old Reiko on her own.

Despite this, she spent the next five years building her reputation as a fighter in her own right, while working part time as a "Race Queen" (a Model in car photo-ops)[5]. One day, she found an advertisement for the Rumble Roses Championship Tournament and signed up in the hopes of emulating her mother's wrestling achievements and perhaps of finding clues to the whereabouts of her sister. Along the way, she soon made friends with two of her fellow competitors Dixie Clemets and Makoto Aihara.[6]

By the start of the second game, Reiko joined with Dixie to create the tag team "Tequila Sunrise". She later teams up with her elder sister Fujiko (now as Noble Rose) to form "The Kamikaze Typhoon".


Reiko Hinomoto is in the locker room, warming up for her next match. As she loosens up and stretches out her body, she prays to her mother, who had died wrestling when Reiko was young. She told her mom that she hasn't heard from her sister ever since she came to Japan to partake in the Rumble Rose. Reiko then vows to her mother that she will become the greatest wrestler in the world. As she finishes her routine, she prays for her mom to watch over her, as well as her sister.

After hard-fought victory over Candy Cane, she strolls backstage and encounters Evil Rose. Reiko senses that there is something peculiar about the mysterious, masked fighter. Evil Rose warns Reiko to go home and quickly leaves with throbbing pain in her head. Reiko is left puzzling with more questions than answers.

The next day, Reiko is in her cute bathing suit, awaiting for her next opponent in a Mud Match, who happens to be Aisha. When she appeared, Reiko was surprised and told her that she's a huge fan of her singing and dancing. Sadly, Aisha is not impressed, especially with the way her rival, Dixie Clements, talked about her. Aisha then takes a shot at Reiko's mother. Reiko demands her opponent to take back her words and Aisha gladly accepted the challenge. Before the match starts, Reiko asks her mom to watch her. After defeating Aisha, an energetic, young woman appears. Reiko recognizes her as Makoto Aihara, who took the gold medal in Judo. Makoto unintentionally addresses Reiko as 'Miss Hinomoto', which took her by surprised. Despite being new to wrestling, that doesn't stop Makoto from being excited about it. She pumps herself up and wishes Reiko to do so. Not wanting to show disrespect, Reiko psyches herself up as well.

Reiko is back in the ring, stretching for her next match. Her next opponent, Anesthesia, appears and acts somewhat impressed with Reiko's progress. Again, Reiko states her goal to become the greatest wrestler in the world and make her mom 'up' there proud of her. But Anesthesia chuckles at her opponent's claims, much to Reiko's confusion. Anesthesia turns around and hides her sadistic laugh with the fact that her mother and her sister were 'down' there. The match begins and Anesthesia gave Reiko everything she could handle. However, Reiko keeps fighting and finally gets the win over Anesthesia. After the match, she was exhausted. Fueled with anger, Anesthesia takes a cheap shot by kicking Reiko in the back, sending her to the mat. But before she can continue with her assault, Evil Rose appears. When she warns Reiko to get out, Anesthesia figures that her memory was returning now that she has encountered her 'sister.' As she leaves the ring, Evil Rose chases after her, leaving Reiko sitting in the middle of the ring all confused.

Her next match is against the Three Count Cowgirl, Dixie Clements. The two wrestlers circled each other in the ring, excited to get their match started, since they have tremendous respect for their opponent. When the match begins, Reiko and Dixie are evenly match. Dixie had the advantage when it comes to size and strength, powering her opponent with heavy strikes and powerful throws. But Reiko used her speed and agility to bring the match to her favor. In the end, Reiko wins and Dixie vows that she'll be back to take the number one spot away from her. As Dixie walks away, Reiko knows that she and the Three Count Cowgirl are going to have quite a rivalry.

Shortly after, the Black Belt Demon appeared behind Reiko. Reiko recognizes that the Black Belt Demon woman was Makoto. But the twisted, young woman attacks clumsily attacks Reiko. Having no other choice, Reiko decides to fight the Black Belt Demon. Despite her opponent's strangely aggressive and violent offense, Reiko defeats the Black Belt Demon, thus making her come back to her senses. Makoto is ashamed at the monster she had became. But then, Anesthesia arrived to break up the scene. Reiko deduces that Anesthesia is the one responsible for all of this. Before she leaves, Anesthesia vows to make Reiko pay in the most sadistic way possible.

At long last, Reiko finally confronts Evil Rose. Despite her warnings to leave, Reiko figures out that Evil Rose is her sister because she has helped. But Evil Rose gave Reiko one last warning to withdraw. Otherwise, she will have to take her down herself, much her sister's dismay. Reiko and Evil Rose fight and the match was dead even. Evil Rose uses her super-human agility and unnatural strength to overwhelm her sister. But Reiko continues to fight and eventually defeats Evil Rose. After the match, Reiko is more confident that the masked fighter is her sister, Fujiko, after seeing the way she fights. Sadly, their reunion is interrupted by Anesthesia, who degrades Evil Rose on how she lost to her little sister. But since Reiko has won, Anesthesia has selected her to be the final test for her Lady X's test in a mother-daughter showdown. Having said that, Reiko believes that her mom is still alive. But Evil Rose reveals the truth, telling Reiko that Anesthesia transplanted their mother's DNA into a cyborg.

Lady X arrives to fight Reiko. Her mechanized offense had Reiko off-guard momentarily. But Reiko endures and fights through to defeat Lady X. After the match, Lady X loses her suit to reveal her true form, known as Lady X Substance. Reiko vows to not let her opponent tarnish her mother's name and get payback for hurting Makoto and her sister. In a knocked-down, drag-out match, Reiko finally gets her opponent on one knee. She runs toward Lady X and delivers a Shining Wizard for Makoto. Reiko the delivers a German Suplex for her sister. She then climbs the top rope and finishes the match with her Angel Dive for her mother. As Evil Rose watches in shock, Lady X malfunctions, making Anesthesia walk away in defeat, now that her experiment has been ruined.

Reiko stands in the middle of the ring and tells her mother that she's no longer a sweet little girl. She vows to keep fighting, no matter how much harm comes to her. Reiko then promise to continue pursuing her goals to become the strongest wrestler in the world, along with her sister. But when Reiko looks around for Evil Rose, she was gone. Only her mask lays in the center of the ring for Reiko to find.

in the Dr. Cutter (Anesthesia) epilogue, Anesthesia defeats Reiko and captures her. Reiko will have to embrace her fate -- either tamed by Anesthesia as her new pet or turned to a new Lady X by Anesthesia. But the ending will only appear in Dr. Cutter (Anesthesia)'s epilogue animation.


While Reiko is very energetic and enthusiastic both in and out of the ring, she is also more introspective and less conceited than some of the other wrestlers. In fact, Reiko will often pray to her mother before the start of a match, hoping that she is 'watching'. However this does not make her any less ambitious; her ultimate goal is to follow in her mother's footsteps and become the world's greatest wrestler.[7]

A long-haired Reiko squares off in the ring

Reiko also seems eager to impress those who she cares about and respects, such as Dixie. When they enter the ring as a team, Dixie holds her hand up just out of Reiko's reach. Reiko clearly recognizes the intent of this, and leaps up to high-five her (even though she misses the first time!).

Reiko highly values honor and loyalty, and will go out of her way to help her friends. She has a fierce determination that drives her on, and this ultimately allows her to break through Fujiko's mental conditioning and free her from the evil influence of Anesthesia. Even after freeing her, Reiko still believes that she must continue to earn her respect. Nevertheless she goes against Fujiko's instructions by remaining in America to continue fighting in the Tournament.

In regard to her self-image, Reiko is clearly confident about her looks. Back in Japan (prior to the tournament), she worked as a Race Queen, a high-end car cover model at photo-shoots. When Reiko is first introduced, she is revealed wearing a white and red boxing robe with the hood up. In an instant, she casts off the robe and sprints along the runway to leap into the ring, where she performs some fast-paced martial arts and then strikes a series of poses. In the Queen's Matches, she happily poses while dressed in her bikini, and waves at the audience. She's also not camera-shy, and responds enthusiastically to Photo-Shoots (especially when accompanied by Dixie).


Reiko 02.5.png

Because of her martial arts background, Reiko has a lean muscular build. Like all the Hinomoto women, she's surprisingly tall at 5'7" putting her above the average height for both Japanese and American women.

Reiko is fair-skinned, has hazel eyes (with pink eye-shadow) and long collar-length dark brown hair that layered distinctively, with tapered edges, and long bangs that are parted far to the left. Even more distinctively, Reiko has a small mole visible just above her left breast.

The default colors of her normal in-ring costume are primarily a bright crimson red, with black trimming. The outfit includes a pair of tight-fitting bright red leather short-shorts that show off her legs. They are unbuttoned to show a pair of white panties with the word "Zero" (in white) written in English on the black waistband.

She wears a matching bright red and black sports bra to show off her cleavage. It's tied in front with white lace, and "Zero" is written (in white) over the black section on the right cup. She has a red and black "scarf" around her neck that hangs down in the back. She wears red and black traditional MMA gloves and matching high-heeled. Reiko has a pair of boots that barely reaches her knees, done up in front with white laces. During her intro, she arrives dressed in a white and red hooded boxing robe with the iconic Japanese image of the Red Rising Sun on the back. A "merger" of the two Kanji symbols that form the word "Nihon" (the native Japanese name of their country) appears over the sun.[8]

Super Star Reiko

When Reiko wins enough matches and becomes popular enough (80% plus) she achieves Super Star status. Her hair is depicted as having grown out, coming almost halfway down her back. It's at this point, that she looks almost identical to her mother(Images of the "Kamikaze Rose" can be seen in the reliefs on the archway leading to the beach).

Reiko's flashy new upgraded outfit has a white and red color scheme the same as the Japanese flag (but with a silver trim). Fittingly, the colors and the overall style of the outfit syncs up with Dixie's Super Star costume quite well. Whether the similarities in the designs were intentional or a purely by coincidence is not clear, though it makes sense as they are Tag Team Partners. The overall design motif of the entire costume appears to be based around the Imperial Naval Flag of Japan- the red rising sun (and its rays) against a white background.[9] This likely serves to conjure images of her homeland.

The outfit includes silver and red and silver high-heeled boots that lace up in the front, and cuffed chaps-like garments over her legs white, with red and silver stripes, and the sun design at the top. Reiko also wears a short white and red skirt, with a silver and red (studded) belt. She wears a matching (red, white, and silver) sleeveless top, with the same rising sun image and "Japan" symbol on the front. The base of the top is adorned with a silver and red belt, similar to the one with the skirt. Red and white striped 'sleeves' cover her arms (with silver cuffs at both ends) and she wears red and silver MMA gloves. Reiko wears a long white scarf (with red edges) around her neck that hangs down her- also with the red Sun and Kanji design on the ends. Reiko has an inverted five-point silver star (a piercing?) right over her navel.

When Reiko takes part in a Queen's Match (or a Mud Match in the first game), she arrived dressed in a relatively modest two-piece (the default colors is white with varying red spots). The bottom piece is tied above her hips on either side and the top piece is tied around her neck and behind her back. She also wears a pair of sandals.

See also: Superstar Reiko Hinomoto's Move List

As the daughter of the legendary Kamikaze Rose, Reiko learned her mother's brand of martial arts from a young age. In the ring, she blends this with elements of traditional wrestling to form her own fighting style. Reiko's moves are largely based around her speed and agility, as well as flexibility. Her overall style is the most 'balanced' of all the wrestlers, and she's able to strike and throw with equal ability. Her aerial moves are also excellent and, with good timing, she can deliver powerful dropkicks.

Her punches and kicks somewhat lack the sheer brute force of some of the other characters, but she can strike faster and has a longer reach. Reiko is also fast on her feet and is good at evading attacks. However, she only has basic reversal skills and little ability to inflict humiliation (at least in her normal mode). As a result of this, Reiko can be at a disadvantage in Pure Humiliation Matches. She can also only soak up so much abuse before she gets injured.

However, if the player is particularly adept with Reiko, they can learn to reverse their opponents attacks and (ideally) transition into her signature Killer move Sunrise Suplex which automatically delivers a pin. Her reversal skill will also increase if used frequently.

Reiko Hinomoto: As the ring announcer introduces Reiko, a platform rises to the center of the stage with Reiko Hinomoto standing in the center, behind a white banner with the image of Red Rising Sun. After the introduction, the banner falls to the ground as a pop of white pyro goes off. Reiko steps forward dressed in her hooded boxing gown. A set of continues flames ignite as she takes off her gown, revealing her herself in her in-ring attire. Reiko sprints toward the ring and vaults over the top rope. She then warms up in the middle of the ring by throwing a few punches and a couple of knees. After swiping her index finger across the bridge of her nose, Reiko modeled for the camera, partaking in a variety of poses. She bounces on her toes, before pointing toward the sky with a burst of flames popping from behind.

  • Rei (零) means "zero," and ko (子) is child, so Reiko's name means "Zero Child" in Japanese, referring to her title, "The Zero Fighter." While her family name, Hinomoto, can be translated into English as meaning "The Origin of Fire".
    • Interestingly, "Nihon" (Japan) is comprised of two Kanji characters 日本, with the first meaning "sun" and the second meaning "origin"- hence, why Japan is “The Land of the Rising Sun”. Originally, the characters were pronounced as “hi no moto”  (“moto” is another pronunciation of 本). So Reiko's family name is also the name of her homeland.[10]
  • Reiko's title- "The Zero Fighter"- is likely a reference to the iconic WW2-era Japanese Fighter Planes of the same name. This also links up with her mother's name, as Zeros would often carry out suicide ("Kamikaze") attacks during battles in the Pacific Theatre.
  • Reiko makes cameo appearance in a couple of Konami series:
  • Reiko's anthem, "Look To The Sky", was composed and performed by Konami in-house musician Sota Fujimori (with guitar work by fellow Konomi musician Atsushi Sato). The song's lyrics were written by Anna Quin and performed by Japanese performer "Yoshiko".[11]
  • Reiko is one of the only two characters who appears on the official release covers of both games, the other character being Dixie Clements.
  • Reiko shares some similarities with Reiko Nagase from the Ridge Racer series. Both shares the same name, have a similar physical appearance, and both women had a "Racing Queen" background.
  • Reiko (as well as her "Heel" alter-ego) was much more central to the two games' advertisements in Japan, featuring in numerous posters and alternate game covers and soundtrack covers. To this extent, she can be considered the 'flagship' character in Japan.
  • Reiko is from Yokohama, Japan the same City as wrestling legend Antonio Inoki who founded New Japan Pro Wrestling (one of the largest promotions in the world) and former WWE Champion (although the WWE does not recognize Inoki's title reign).
