Rita is the Chikei Star in Suikoden IV and a playable character in Suikoden Tactics.


Rita is a cheerful young girl, and loved to create new games such as Ritapon and play people at them in order to make money.




During the Island Liberation War, she joined Lazlo's group after being impressed by his Ritapon-playing abilities. While on board the Dauntless, Rita played many people at Ritapon, including Rakgi, whom she lost to several times. She eventually cheated to win against Rakgi, but felt guilty about it. Rita mentioned playing Ritapon during her confession to Keen, completely eradicating any sense of anonymity she previously had. Rita developed a crush to Lazlo and became good friends with Noah and Rene; together, the three presented Lazlo with a Wooden Amulet prior to the final battle at Fort El-Eal.

At the Fall of Kooluk, Rita began designing a new game in order to make even more money. She eventually created a game where each character had to change tiles on a battlefield to his or her chosen element as many times as possible within a strict time limit. Rita made a request to the Middleport Quest Guild in order to have someone test the game with her; she abandoned the venture after she lost a game to Kyril. Rita then decided to assist Kyril for the remainder of his adventure. While she was with Kyril's group, she was happily reunited with Noah and Rene. She became close with Corselia, the Kooluk princess. In fact she even ask her on, what would be the name of the new game Rita invented and eventually Rita decided to call it Ritaland. She also became closed to Millay and even ask her to play Ritaland with her over and over again. After the fighting is over and the Evil Eye is destroyed, she and Noah invite Corselia and everyone, and go hang out together.


Rita is the proprietor of the Minigame Ritapon.

Role in the GameEdit

Travel to Na-Nal and go to the inn. Once you beat her at Ritapon and win over 500 potch from her, talk to her and she'll join.

Rita is a mix between a mage and a fighter-type character. Her HP is generally low, but not as low as a higher mage, and her magic power is better than other fighter characters. What makes Rita more unique is that her weapon is stronger than other mages, so while being more of a magic caster, she can also inflict stronger physical blows as well.

Rita is best with a Lightning Rune, but does very well with any other magical rune, she has a 3 in Lightning and a 2 in Fire, Water, Earth and Wind. A Killer Rune can be helpful, as she has a high luck stat.

Rita has a Good Will with Millay and Viki.

  • Keen: You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.

            Rita: Oookkkaaaayyy.

  • Keen: Would you secretly inform me about anyone on board this ship who you think is causing problems?

            Rita: Hmm... Mr. Lazlo!! Because I want him to play more matches with me! Well, I can understand that he's busy, too...

  • Keen: Then, would you tell me what you think of yourself?

            Rita: What? Me? Um, I'm always really earnest... And always neat... Ummm... and also, I like puffer fish with sashimi! I think that's about it...

  • Keen: Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.

            Rita: Umm... The other day, when I played Ritapon with Rakgi, I cheated a little... I only did it because I just couldn't lose against Rakgi! But that was wrong... I've decided I'll play fair and square next time.

  • Keen: Then, I shall pass judgement!

            Rita: Yaaay!! I did it, I did it! Later!

            Rita: ...!! That hurt!! I won't give up over something like this!!

Let's play again! I'll practice until then. No more losing for me!

I'm thinking of calling my game "Ritapon!" Well, what do you think? Isn't it a nifty name?

I played Noah's game. I ended up with 10 wins, 11 losses... I absolutely can't lose next time!!

Accept the "Game On!" quest [Rank E] and beat Rita at her element-shifting game. If you succeed, she'll join you.

Rita is good at her Smash Skill. Due to her high Luck she can apply her skills properly.

  • Despite being more of a mage-type character in Suikoden IV, she was turned into a fighter-type one in Suikoden Tactics, most likely due to her weapon. This was also done with Wendel.
  • Rita's second game invention in Suikoden Tactics is very similar to a more recent game called Splatoon, where you paint the floor with your particular color.
  • While recruiting Rita in Suikoden Tactics, the theme song "Ritapon" is played.
