Hideaki Rikuto, known as Rikki, is one of the 10,000 people trapped in Sword Art Online. He is the primary tank of the guild Ursa Minor and is a supporting character in the fan fiction Misfortune Made Her Sword.


Rikki is a tall young man of average build. He has short, blue-black hair, and grey eyes set in a long face. The bridge of his nose and his cheeks are smattered with freckles.

Early in the game Rikki wears a heavy dark green coat and dark slacks with a banded iron chest plate. He wears his sword on his left hip and his shield on his back.


Rikki is a very straightforward and generally business-minded person, regarded by his fellow guild members as their local grump. Although usually reserved, he often employs dry humour in his exchanges with everyone. He is very close with his money, having had to measure his spending from the time he was old enough to work. Although he is aware that this is not an issue within the game, the habit remains and he doesn't bother to fight it. Rather, he doubles down about it, even going so far as to call out other members of the guild, most notably Renee, when they start pulling from the guild's finances.
