Ryukyu is a woman with a few reptilian features such as slit pupils and sharp teeth.
Her hero costume consists of a traditional, flowing qipao with scale motifs, a headband adorned with a claw-like accessory and decorative wings on the back of her head. She also wears spiked earrings.
Ryukyu is a humble and gentle person, giving praise where it's deserved and not expecting gratitude for the praise. She always keeps her composure. Ryukyu sees talent where it's due and is willing to hand difficult tasks to those who she thinks can handle them.
Ryukyu seems to have a soft spot for children, as she was saddened when she heard that Overhaul uses his own daughter to create anti-quirk drugs.
After witnessing how Nejire, Tsuyu and Ochaco took down two giant villains, she praises them and notes that Nejire improved the timing of her attacks. Ryukyu then proposes that she deems them all fit enough to take part in Sir Nighteye's team request.
Ryukyu is among the Pro Heroes and their sidekicks present at Sir Nighteye's meeting. As Nejire asks Ryukyu what the meeting is about, Ryukyu tells her that Sir Nighteye is about to explain. During his explanation of Chisaki's operation, she expresses sadness and shock over the thought of Chisaki using his own daughter to create weapons.
Quirk and Abilities
Unnamed Quirk: Ryukyu's Quirk allows her to transform into a dragon, a powerful mythological creature. This form presumably grants her abilities commonly associated with dragons.
Enhanced Strength: Ryukyu's dragon form gives her great strength, easily being able to block a large villain's punch and then to smash him into the ground.
- When written as "竜" and "九", "ryū" and "kyū" mean "dragon" and "9" respectively, which would mirror Ryūkyū's Quirk and current position in the hero ranking.
