Role in GameEdit

Character InformationEdit

DevelopmentEdit

When the developers were considering who to place into Warriors All-Stars, they wanted to consider the entire corporation to truly include their "all star characters". Rio became an obvious choice due to her status as a moe mascot. Furusawa remarked that she was hard for the team to conceive since she doesn't originate from an action series or necessarily fight. At first, her actions were fairly normal and they struggled to revise her actions to feel "more festive"; her slot machines and other gimmicks are their remedy to their problem. Her anime design was another challenge to replicate since they wanted to remain faithful without venturing into the uncanny valley when compared to the rest of the cast.

Inoue didn't feel any particular pressure reprising her role for Warriors All-Stars though she enjoyed experiencing several continuities within a single game. She hopes everyone enjoys Rio's Warriors debut.

PersonalityEdit

Rio has a masterful poker face, often hiding her devious gambits with an ever-present smile. Rio is always portrayed as the most capable person in the many crews she has joined throughout her career. She gracefully addresses any misgivings her customers may have as a gentle and courteous peacekeeper. If a customer challenges her to a game, she states that everything will be "as the customer wishes"; whether her words are malicious or not depends on her opponent's nature. It's rare for anyone to predict Rio's ploys until they're being played. Her professional charm and high earnings allow her a famous reputation.
