Ryo-oh-ki



Ship form crashing into Ayeka's ship.
What looks and sounds like a cross between a cat and a rabbit, Ryo-oh-ki is a most amazing character. Why does Ryo-oh-ki love carrots so much? Because they are so delicious. Ryo-oh-ki ate a carrot for the first time and fell in love with it immediately. Why? Like Ryoko, Ryo-oh-ki gets necessary energy through the jewel. But unlike Ryoko, Ryo-oh-ki has sense of taste. So the answer to the question is simply she thought it was wonderful. If she is allowed, she can eat endlessly because they will be digested 'completely'. In short, Ryo-oh-ki is very happy as long as she can eat carrots. The jewel-like thing on Ryo-oh-ki's forehead? Is this the same thing as Ryoko's jewel? Strictly speaking, no. More correctly, it is something that synchronise with the jewel. Their relation is like a host computer and a terminal. Ryo-oh-ki is linked to Ryoko through them. It is also where Ryo-oh-ki stores the energy received from the jewel. This is why Ryoko had to get a jewel back form Tenchi in to summon Ryo-oh-ki. Ryo-oh-ki can also emit a beam from it when she fights in her animal mode. The history of Ryo-oh-ki? The first generation Ryo-oh-ki was badly damaged in episode 2. Later she died and a new baby hatched from an egg. An entire spaceship became a small animal-mode Ryo-oh-ki. This baby transforms itself to a spaceship, a mature form of the second generation Ryo-oh-ki. Then what are those many Ryo-oh-ki appeared in episode 7? They are the crystals in the bridge of the spaceship-mode Ryo-oh-ki. They transformed themselves using the information of animal-mode from the spaceship. (There were crystals in the first-generation Ryo-oh-ki, too. But they could not transform.) So the bunch of Ryo-oh-ki, with a carrot each, had to go back to the lake, where the spaceship is kept. Also this explains why there was only one Ryo-oh-ki before, and there was no animal-mode Ryo-oh-ki in later episodes. What happened to Ryo-oh-ki in the battle with Kagato? After Ryo-oh-ki fought against Ryu-oh she re-created herself. But how about after the battle with Kagato? Did she do the same thing again? No. Ryo-oh-ki was hardly hurt. It was the Ryu-oh unit beneath her that was mostly damaged by the attack. Of course, Ryo-oh-ki did get some damage but that was light enough to be healed without a problem. In fact, the first generation Ryo-oh-ki died partly because her life span was about to end. She had a good fight with Yosho and felt the limit of her power. So she decided re-create herself. Ryo-oh-ki can evolve like Ryoko and, therefore, the second generation has more power than the first generation. Incidentally, Ryo-oh-ki took Ryu-oh in to reinforce her offensive capability and the Tree on Ryu-oh accepted this idea to allow the combination. How many Ryo-oh-ki are there in total? A crap load. But it doesn't stop there. When Ryo-oh-ki felt bad about Tenchi working on carrot fields all day for her (cause Ryo-oh-ki does love Tenchi), she wandered into Wahsu's lab and happen to sit by the masses tank. Since masses follow a greater mind, they formed to Ryo-oh-ki's thoughts. They form a girl who goes out to help Tenchi. That doesn't sound too bad, but when masses notice threat they attack very violently. Becaues of Tenchi's hidden powers when Washu noticed masses were missing, she started looking for him. When the group found him he was about to be blasted, Ryo-oh-ki jumped on the masses and assimilated to them, becoming one and forming a human-form of Ryo-oh-ki.
