Kunio-Kun Wiki
Kunio-Kun Wiki

Riki (りき?) is the the second most recurring character in the Kunio-kun franchise. Riki is a third year student and the banchō of Hanazono High School. He is Kunio's rival and best friend, and like him he takes the role of helper in various sport clubs at his school, which grants him praise from his peers and juniors. He is known as "Mach Punch Riki", and just like Kunio, is a righteous delinquent who fights for justice. However, when his anger reaches the boiling point, he snaps and goes berserk.

He was first featured in Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun as the first stage boss. In Downtown Nekketsu Story, Riki and Kunio join forces for the first time and become best friends. In his subsequent appearances in the franchise he would face Kunio in different sport competitions or become his ally.

Before becoming the banchō of Hanazono High School, Riki was the ace of his school's soccer club. After the story of him being arrested by the police following an altercation he got into while defending his teammates from harm gave unwanted attention to his school, Riki was forced to repeat his senior year and was removed from the soccer club. Soon after, he'd get into a fight with Sakata and overtake him as the school's banchō, thus starting his path into delinquency. Riki would begin to build up his legend as "Mach Punch Riki" and eventually took on the bōsōzoku gang Mushamonzen after getting involved with them. Sometime after this, Riki would have his first encounter with Kunio and was defeated.

In the Downtown Nekketsu series his full name is Riki Samejima (鮫島力, さめじま りき?).


Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun[]

Riki debuted in Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun as the first boss alongside other Hanazono High School students. In this game, he is given the full name of Riki Hibari (雲雀力, ひばり りき?). After this game, the name is dropped in favor of being simply being known as Riki or by Downtown Nekketsu Story referred to as Riki Samejima.

Riki is able to punch faster than anyone else in the game and is able to grab a stunned Kunio to punch him multiple times. In the Arcade version, Riki and his men will attack Hiroshi outside of Nekketsu High School like the other bosses do. Riki is then seen waiting at the Shinjuku Station as Kunio fights a group of Hanazono students and will join the fight after a certain number of them are defeated. In the Famicom version, Riki instead faces off against Kunio alone after he fights off a second wave of Hanazono students on the train.

Riki appears annoyed over Hiroshi's voice and acts rudely towards him. When he hears Hiroshi mention the rumor of Kunio's girlfriend Misako cheating on him with Daiki, Riki points out that he once told Kunio to not go out with her, in which Kunio tells him to mind his own business.

After the fight, the two put back on their uniforms and are seen at the school's entrance. Misako catches up with them and is asked by Kunio about what reportedly happened between her and Daiki, though Riki impatiently breaks up the conversation and tells Kunio to not worry about his girlfriend at the moment as they're still wanted fugitives. Misako angrily brings up Kyōko and how Hanazono High School also had someone take over in his absence, which makes Riki begin to worry about what happened to both his girlfriend and his school. Kunio and Riki then come to the conclusion that their schools being in turmoil only after a few days of their absence is highly suspicious. Upon arriving at the school, Riki appears distraught that it's truly been destroyed and then runs into Nobu who is relieves to see that he has returned. He learns through him that Ryūta has taken over the school as soon as he got arrested and that all of the students from his school, Nekketsu High School, and the next town over have each been forced into working part-time jobs at an amusement park for them. After the protagonists fight their way to the school's rooftop, Riki witnesses Ryūta trying to get with Kyōko and makes his presence known after hearing Ryūta mention his name.

He mistakes Kunio for being his lookalike, in which the group then learns that Kunio's lookalike is a guy called Ken who comes by to talk to Shinji.

After being defeated for the second time, Shinji warns the group that they'll end up being killed if they continue looking into Ken. Outside of the warehouse, Takayama informs the protagonists that Sabu is the mastermind behind the entire scheme and that Ken is rumored to be Kunio's twin brother. Kunio is stunned by this information and begins to dwell on whether Ken being his brother is actually true, though Riki believes the rumor to be false as he thinks that Kunio's real brother would never do such horrible things to set him up. The protagonists then head over to Roppongi as Ken was reportedly last seen there.

Riki KTNB SC 4

Riki after Kyōko was shot by Sabu.

Outside of the disco club in Roppongi, the group fight against Lisa and Joe as they were ordered to kill Kunio. After the fight, Lisa runs into the club to look for Kinji which confuses Riki on what she is talking about, though Kunio assumes that Kinji was the one who gave her their orders. The group find Kinji inside of the club and fight against him and Lisa after he refused to give out any information on Ken's whereabouts. Following the battle, the protagonists are told that Ken is currently at the pachinko parlor in Shinjuku. Later inside of the parlor, Riki spots Misuzu on one of the pachinko machines and immediately begins to feel worried. When Misuzu comes up to talk to Kunio, Misako asks who Misuzu is and calls her weird, in which Riki tells Misako to be quiet so she doesn't upset Misuzu. The group then face off against Misuzu as she was looking to let off some steam after her losing streak on the machines. After the fight, the protagonists head upstairs where they find Sabu and Ken. Riki and Kunio witness their girlfriends get shot by Sabu during the meeting as he and Ken depart. In a panic, Riki runs over to Kyōko and watches her pass out in his arms as she pleads with him to stop crying and to keep his act together. The two meet Takayama and Mamoru outside of the parlor as Takayama informs them that Sabu and Ken are headed for Izu and offers to lead them there while Mamoru takes the girls to the hospital.

In Izu, Riki and Kunio fights the enemies on the bridge leading to Sabu's villa until they reach Ken, where he then proceeds to burn the bridge in order to prevent them from continuing any further. The two fight off more waves of enemies along the water until they eventually find the entrance to a cave that they were able to use to get back up into the villa. Riki and Kunio fight their way through the villa until they're stopped by Misuzu who has since been hired by the Sanwakai as a bodyguard. Riki expresses his disappointment in how she had to show up again at the worst time. Following Misuzu's second defeat, the boys fight two more yakuza goons before facing off against Ken. After Ken is beaten in the fight and is shot by Sabu, he reveals that he wasn't actually Kunio's brother, to which Riki restates his earlier assumption in how an actual brother of Kunio would never commit a hit and run. Sabu activates the villa's self destruction system shortly after and the boys proceed to run after him. Upon defeating Sabu, the boys escape from his villa and are later seen watching it burn from afar as Takayama arrives to inform them that any of the escaping Sanwakai members have been arrested and that Kyōko and Misako have survived the gunshots.

Riki then tells Wataru to do whatever he'd like and allows him to continue following him. Wataru then asks Riki if he's ever had the thought of getting a foothold over Tokyo as he believes that it'd be a waste of a time for a banchō at a school their size to be living in such a small world. Thinking that it'd be fun, Riki agrees to Wataru's idea and the two head to Ikebukuro to build up Riki's status. At the station, Wataru hands Riki the black handbag that is passed onto each of the school's banchōs.

Wataru is then seen waiting for Riki outside of the Principal's office as he asks him what happened.

Meanwhile on the school's rooftop, Wataru is talking to Riki about the previous day and how the strength he showed in his fight against Okada got him excited for when they get back to getting a foothold over Tokyo. Riki appears disinterested in the matter which has Wataru ask him if something is wrong. He then gets up from the ground and tells Wataru that he feels like he's the cause for what's been happening and that if they continue acting so recklessly they'll only keep causing incidents like before to happen. Riki thinks that he's gotten too many people who don't care about their antics involved for no reason and that he should stop, though Wataru decides to give him a speech on how inspirational and important Riki's actions have been on others which motivates him to continue building up his name. While walking outside of the school's entrance, Toyoizumi spots Riki and informs him of his encounter with Maezawa. Riki then leaves for Ikebukuro where he meets up with Maezawa at an empty lot.

Mikoto gets ready to head back to Yokosuka in order to help Shinji, though Riki refuses to let him go and decides to head over there himself. Riki takes Mikoto's bike and heads for Yokosuka until he is stopped by Okada who was waiting for him in the middle of the highway. Okada blames Riki for his current situation and how he was kicked out of the Mushamonzen as he starts a fight against him.

Riki thanks Okada for the advice and leaves. He then arrives to the port in Yokosuka to the sight of Shinji tired out after having beaten a large amount of Maezawa's men. Shinji is shocked to see Riki and asks why he's there, to which Riki tells him that he found out about what was happening through Mikoto and that he has come to help him. Riki proceeds to fight Maezawa and waves of his men in a long battle until he is finally defeated. He then forces Maezawa to apologize for what he's done, in which Maezawa gets down on his knees in an attempt to land a cheap blow on him. Riki dodges his attack and then punches him into the water using his signature Mach Punch. Shinji thanks Riki for helping him out and warns him that more people are going to be out for him following this incident. Riki states that he's looking forward to it and says goodbye to Shinji.

During the game's post-credits cutscene, Riki is seen at the Shinjuku Station waiting for Kunio to arrive, which is where the two would fight each other for the first time.

River City: Tokyo Rumble[]

After Wataru and Sakata attack Hiroshi, Kunio gives chase and proceeds to beat the crap out of them. Sakata swears that Riki gave the order to give Hiroshi the business, and although Kunio is skeptical, he is still angry and decides to meet Riki in Shinjuku to confirm this. Riki is spending time with his girlfriend Kyōko and when confronted by Kunio, agrees to settle the matter in Ikebukuro, claiming he had nothing to do with the attack on Hiroshi. The two meet again in a vacant lot there and are ambushed by Ginjishi and the treacherous Wataru and Sakata, who have turned on Riki to join the Kanto Lion Alliance with Ginjishi. Kunio and Riki defeat the three and aware of the threat that the alliance poses, agree to join forces.

Riki can travel together with Kunio as an ally controlled by CPU. He starts the game with the Mach Punch and as he levels up, gains additional moves. On a second run of the game using clear save data, speaking to his girlfriend allows Kunio to switch with Riki. Although the player can control Riki, they cannot teach him any moves purchased in the game's shops, but they can equip him with any of the game's special items.

River City: Knights of Justice[]

In this game, Riki plays the role of Ricky Break.

He is searching for Cooney (Kunio) to fight him. When defeated, Cooney can kill or spare him. If the former, Ricky never appears in the game again. If spared, he will join Cooney as his ally. However, at a crucial moment during the game, Ricky will turn on Cooney and the player will have no choice but to kill him.

Although Riki was Kunio's enemy in the original Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun and Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu, this is the only game in the franchise where Riki is a villain from the beginning to the end[3].

Nekketsu Taisen Kunio-kun X[]

River City Super Sports Challenge ~All Stars Special~[]

This remake of Super-Awesome Field Day re-imagines the events of that game. The story takes place after River City: Rival Showdown.

In the story mode, Riki is first seen alongside Hikaru Saotome after the first game of the preliminaries. Riki spots Wataru and asks what he's doing, though the two suspect that something is up after he continues to act strange. Tsuyoshi Gōda and Godai arrive afterwards and point out how they're also suspicious of Wataru after passing by him and noticing that he looked upset. During the second round of the qualifiers, Riki finds Kunio to tell him that he heard of what happened to Sanjūrō Sugata and warns him to be careful believing that more bad things will happen. Kunio jokingly tells Riki how what he said isn't something that he should be saying to his opponent which puts Riki at ease. The two then express their wishes to have an honorable fight against each other.

After the semi-finals, Riki is seen with Gōda at the School Union's booth as Kunio and the new freshman arrive. Kunio asks what happened to their booth as it's been torn down, to which Riki explains that a conflict between Wataru's followers and Gōda's followers likely sparked as Hanazono High School and the School Union are to be competing against each other in the next game. Riki then asks Kunio if Nekketsu High School is now waiting for the finals, which Kunio and the new freshman confirm that they are and are confident that they'll win. Riki is hopeful that they won't lose to Reihō Academy. During the finals, an announcement is made that Hanazono and the School Union are set to participate in the finals against Nekketsu and Reihō as the other remaining teams have dropped out of the competition. Riki, Saotome, Gōda, and Godai are seen getting pumped up as they get to have another shot against Kunio's team while also being able to crush Reihō.

Once the tournament comes to an end, Riki is seen talking with Saotome about how tough Nekketsu High School's team was, in which he agrees with Saotome and believes that they'll need to train the juniors more. Wataru then apologizes to Riki for the problems that he's caused and is told by him that having high ambitions is not a bad thing and to not worry about it. Saotome then suggests that the team should go out together for the night in celebration for doing well in the tournament. Riki agrees to the idea and decides to take everyone out to eat for their hard work, though he appears confused when Saotome tells him that the bill will be on him.

Riki appears as the captain of Hanazono High School's team, a member of the Historical Drama team in the role of Rikigorō, and as a member of the Nekketsu Magical Story team in the role of Ricky. Riki is able to use the Mach Punch and the Tornado Punch, Rikigorō is only able to use the Mach Punch, and Ricky is able to use Mach Bash and Mach Punch.

On the second day, Kiyofumi Taira planned to have Hanazono High School and Senridai High School fight each other in an attempt to weaken them and eventually have them knuckle under to Reihō Academy. To do this, Taira initially was going to target Mami, though because Yorikazu Minamoto did not show up he instead moved to his backup plan which was to attack Riki directly. Kunio is told of Taira's plans by Minamoto and heads to Starpark Café right on time to intercept Riki's fight with Taira. Riki and Kunio then successfully take down Taira and his hired backup. After the brawl in the café, Riki makes his way to Hanazono High School to break up the fight about to happen with Kunio coming in to read Taira's text messages after Kaoru Sonokawa demanded proof that Hanazono wasn't responsible for attacking Senridai students.

Riki RS SC 2

Riki and Kunio end their fighting after defeating Ryūichi and Ryūji on the top floor. With Mami being rescued, Riki chooses to wait with her and Kazumi Hasebe for Kunio to finish his fight against Yamada. When Yamada later attacks all of Kunio's allies outside of Reihō's entrance, Riki takes Mami and Hasebe to safety while Kunio fights Yamada for the last time.

In the story mode, Riki is only able to be controlled by the second player in co-op play. Riki functions the same as Kunio with the only difference being their appearance. When playing in co-op, Riki will be on-screen with Kunio at all times during gameplay though will be completely absent from any cutscenes he's not normally apart of.

Riki and Kunio in a photo sent to Kyōko's phone.

During the beginning of the game, Misako and Kyōko receive a mysterious text while in detention that shows a photo of the boys supposedly being kidnapped. The girls run throughout all of town fighting anyone that gets in their way in search of any information on their whereabouts. Many faces they come across during their adventure, most notably their love rivals Hasebe and Mami, hint at or outright claim that the boys are not in love with Misako and Kyōko. The girls eventually reach the Sanwakai Tower thinking that their boss Sabu was responsible for the kidnapping of Riki and Kunio, though they'd eventually realize the Sanwakai had no involvement and would fight Sabu's daughter Sabuko as she wanted to set an example out of them for storming through the tower. The girls defeat Sabuko and kick her out of the window where they then crash into the sauna nearby. Inside of the sauna, Riki and Kunio are able to be seen together relaxing until they spot the girls.

In the game's bad ending, Kunio notes the two as being the crazy girls they've met before and struggles to remember their names. He then suggests to Riki that they go see Hasebe and Mami which enrages the girls and leads to them punching the boys through the roof. In the game's true ending, the boys get ready to leave the sauna to get something to eat with Kunio asking the girls if they'd like to join them on a burger date. Upon completing the game once, Riki and Kunio are both unlocked as playable characters. The story does not change with any of them present and will act as if they are not present.

Riki TK SC 1

Sun Quan during his meeting with Zhuge Liang.

In the story mode, Sun Quan is first seen during the final chapter as Zhuge Liang (Misako) heads to Chaisang alone to convince him, Zhou Yu (Kyōko), and Lu Su (Mami) to join forces with Liu Bei (Gōda) in order to defeat Cao Cao (Yamada)'s army. Sun Quan explains that he has no intention of letting Cao Cao defeat his army and mentions that he wanted to fight him for himself. He agrees to Zhuge Liang's proposal for an alliance and asks her to go and inform Liu Bei of the news. An officer pleads with Sun Quan to not fall for Zhuge Liang's supposed tricks, though Sun Quan smashes a table and orders the man to be silent. The Brothers of the Peach Garden arrive in Chaisang with Zhuge Liang afterwards and head to the castle to meet with Sun Quan. During the meeting, Sun Quan suggests to the group that they instead write their ideas down in case if there's a spy listening in on them. In a sidequest, Sun Quan asks Guan Yu (Kunio) to spy on Cao Cao's army in Xiakou to see if they're strengthening their navy. Guan Yu later informs Sun Quan that a general has been brought in that specializes in naval battle, to which Sun Quan states that they'll now go into the final battle knowing that Cao Cao's navy is no longer his weakness. Zhou Yu joins the conversation and suggests that they spread a rumor within Cao Cao's army that their new general is a spy with secret connections to Liu Bei, which Sun Quan then writes this out on a letter and asks Guan Yu to deliver it to where Cao Cao's troops would see it.

Riki TK SC 2

Sun Quan vowing to beat some sense into Guan Yu in the Comedy route of the finale.

After preparations are made for the final battle, Sun Quan assembles everyone in Lukou to inform them that they'll be making a move on Cao Cao's army at night. During the ending of the Romance route, Sun Quan appears upset with Guan Yu and his allies for letting Cao Cao go and angrily asks why they're celebrating while denoting them as an army of airheads. Now calmed down, he thanks them for being a great help in overcoming the odds and expresses his gratitude in being able to have them as allies, though he is uncertain how things will be when they cross paths in the future. In the Hot-Blooded route's ending, Guan Yu will lie to everyone and claim that he's dealt with Cao Cao for good. Sun Quan is relieved over the news and assures that they'll leave the Han to the brothers so long as they don't turn out like Dong Zhuo (Sabu) or Cao Cao. When playing on the Comedy route, Sun Quan finds Guan Yu in Wulin and scolds him for letting Cao Cao flee back to Jingzhou after Guan Yu had fought off his entire army. Guan Yu admits that he hasn't seen Cao Cao around, which his recklessness enrages Sun Quan as he gathers up his troops to beat some sense into Guan Yu.

In the China Heroes gamemode, Riki is able to be unlocked by completing the gamemode once. Riki is able to use the Mach Punch, Gorgeous Punch, Overhead Kick, Table Slam, and the Aura Gatling.

In Riki's Arcade story, he is out on the streets looking for Kunio and is told to look for the new crime boss that showed up in town. Upon reaching Hyperion on a school's rooftop, he comments that Riki truly is an equal to Kunio and offers him the chance to prove that he's better than him. Not interested in playing games, Riki suggests that he can instead knock out Hyperion instead. Hyperion instead takes Riki's comment as confirmation for him to enter the tournament and states that if he does well enough, he'll have the chance to fight him.

When Kunio comes across Riki, he appears confused that he's also participating the tournament. Riki is interested in showing Kunio how strong he really is, to which Kunio laughs off the comment and begins to fight. Upon finding Tunestone, Riki appears disappointed that he has to fight a skeleton and calls him a grandpa, to which Tunestone takes offense and begins to fight. On the final fight, Hyperion taunts Riki by claiming that he's always been the second-best and believes that he has no chance in beating him, though Riki tells him to step forward so he can find out.

During the ending, a portal opens back up to their world and Riki and Kunio head back home. Kunio thanks Riki for helping him out, to which Riki then states the reason why he entered the tournament was that he wanted to win it and prove that he should've been chosen first by Hyperion.

Localized versions[]

  • In Renegade, Riki was changed to a character named Jack, who bears a resemblance to Luther from the seventies film The Warriors.
  • In the NES version of Super Dodge Ball, he is also known as Jack, a captain of Team Pro All-Star.
  • In River City Ransom, Riki was renamed Ryan.
  • In Crash 'n the Boys: Street Challenge, Riki was renamed Crusher (shortened to Crush in-game), a member of Team Thornley, who replaces the character named Raphael in the original game.
  • In River City Ransom: Underground, Ryan's full name is shown as Ryan Samejima in the school's year book on the file select screen.


  • His nickname is "Mach Punch Riki". The inspiration for the Mach Punch comes from the Speed Racer manga (which was known as Mach GoGoGo in Japan). Animating the Mach Punch in the original arcade game (when Riki grabs Kunio and punches him) reminded Kishimoto of the Mach GoGoGo anime[6].
  • According to Yoshihisa Kishimoto, Riki's name originates from a notorious yakuza in his youth.
  • Riki has had at least two confirmed girlfriends in the games: Mami in Downtown Nekketsu series, and Kyoko in Kunio-tachi no Banka.
  • The character Kazuma Kuwabara from the anime Yu Yu Hakusho bears a close resemblance to him due to his pompadour hairstyle and uniform color.
  • In Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun, Riki's surname was Hibari. Samejima was introduced as his surname in Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari. However, according to Yoshihisa Kishimoto, Riki is simply named Riki[7], just like the rest of the characters that debuted in Nekketsu Renegade Kunio-kun (Wataru is one exception). It is unknown if Riki is his surname or given name.
  • Kunio's catchphrase, "Namen'nayo!" (なめんなよ!, roughly translates to "Don't mess with me!"), originated from Riki in the original arcade game as well as in the Famicom version. He originally said "Namen'nayo kono yarou!" (なめんなよ この やろう!, roughly translates to "Don't mess with me, punk!").
  • Riki shares many traits with Kunio, such as his roughed up appearance and his deep sense of honor. Unlike his rival, however, he has a more serious, quiet and down-to-business personality, as noticed in Shin Nekketsu Kōha: Kunio-tachi no Banka where he's the character that speaks the least.
