Riku Asakura (朝倉リク Asakura Riku?) is the protagonist of Ultraman Geed and is the human form of the titular character.

EtymologyEdit

  • Asakura (朝暗): Is a proper noun with no meaning, however it can be broken down.
    • Asa (朝): Is Kanji for epoch/dynasty
    • Kura (暗): Is Kanji for dark/sorrowful/bitter.
  • Riku (離苦): Is Kanji for agony in separation.

Overall, his first name might reference to the fact that he got separated from his father without knowing him. His last name might reference to the fact that his father caused dark times in the Land of Light by invading it.

It is also known that his name is a reference to the late science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke.

HistoryEdit

Ultraman GeedEdit

Originally the human form of Ultraman Geed, Riku grew up on Earth as a human who has no awareness of his true nature. Upon obtaining the Geed Riser and Ultra Capsules, Riku was exposed to his true nature as an Ultraman, as well as his father being Ultraman Belial.[1]

He was inspired to help others through his favorite TV program, Don Shine and he spend most of his time in the Nebula House (星雲荘 Seiun Sō?) base, but works part-time at the Galaxy Market.

At some point, his residence is destroyed by a rampaging Skull Gomora. Not long after that, he is invited to a secret base and encountered an A.I named RE.M.

Powers and WeaponsEdit

WeaponsEdit

  • Geed Riser: His Transformation device.
    • Transformation: Being Geed's transformation device, Riku can use it to become his true form, Ultraman Geed.
    • Communication Device: Through the Loading Knuckle, Riku is capable of maintaining his contact with RE.M. herself.

PhysicalEdit

  • Ultraman DNA: Possessing the B Factor (Belial) in his body (as well as a human in disguise), Riku demonstrated multiple inhuman abilities that all disguised Ultra Warriors shared:
    • Superhuman Leap: Riku is capable of performing high jump.
    • Endurance: Despite being thrown from a two-storey building, Riku was shown unharmed and this gave him enough time to escape from Skull Gomora's rampaging spree.
    • Acute Hearing: As mentioned in Pega's past, Riku is able to detect his cry for help whereas normal humans incapable of doing so.

TransformationEdit

Riku first activated a pair of apparition of the Ultras to appear as he inserted into the Loading Knuckle. Then he used the Geed Riser to scan it and press the trigger to transform into Geed.

"You go! I go! Here we Go! Time to get ready! Geed!!!"

―Activation announcement for Primitive

After scanning both capsules, Riku presses the trigger of Geed Riser then his body transforms into his Ultra form. During the rise sequence, the background first appears to resemble Ultraman's rising scene (A red background) then Belial's head appeared briefly before changing to a purple background. As he moves closer, a blue and red background with some red lightning on it takes place.


"Fusion, Protection! Here we Go! Burn on, Courage! Geed!!!"

―Activation announcement for Solid Burning


"Fusion, Protection! Here we Go! Show it, the Impact! Geed!!!"

―Activation announcement for Acro Smasher


"Fusion, Protection! Here we Go! (TBA) Geed!!!"

―Activation announcement for Magnificent


Ultra CapsulesEdit

Riku obtains the Ultra Capsules from fighting monsters as Ultraman Geed and uses them to help him in his cause.

TriviaEdit

  • Riku's actor, Tatsuomi Hamada, previous portrayed Nao in Ultraman Zero The Movie: Super Deciding Fight! The Belial Galactic Empire. In a promotional video of Ultraman Geed, Tatsuomi also mentioned his previous role, now viewing Belial as a father to his character while facing his destiny.
  • His pre-transformation phrase, "Yuugo (Fusion)! Aigo (Protection)! Here we go!", is a pun on the English words, "You go! I go! Here we go!".
