Riku's appearance in Final Fantasy Record Keeper is based on his original appearance from the first Kingdom Hearts game. He wears a sleeveless yellow shirt with black straps across it, two-toned blue pants, and black gloves. His weapon is the Soul Eater, a dark sword shaped like a red and black wing with an eye set into the handle. He has silver hair and turquoise eyes. His original character designer is Tetsuya Nomura.


A young boy who lived on Destiny Islands with his friends Sora and Kairi. Brimming with self confidence and skilled at everything he set his mind to, Riku was held in special esteem by the other kids on the islands.


Riku is competitive with his friend and rival Sora, but his jealousy over the close friendship between Sora and Kairi contributed to his fall to darkness. He admits a major reason he was so competitive with Sora growing up was because he secretly worried he was inferior.

Following his reformation, Riku is impervious to the corrupting influences of darkness, something that is implied to have never been accomplished before, and he wields his dark powers to combat the darkness itself. This philosophy, and Riku's search for redemption, is reflected in the name of his Keyblade, "The Way to the Dawn," symbolizing light emerging from darkness.
