Ryoko is a Japanese judo
practitioner and sports superstar that fills the hearts of the people in her
hometown with pride. Even since her father left her when she was younger and
hasn't seen him in a long time, she has been training under her grandfather for
years. She enters the tournament to test herself. After the tournament, Ryoko
returns home and continues to improve herself ever further. Ryoko has long desire to
surpass her grandfather Gengoro, even after becoming the No. 1 in Judo world.
And at last, she devised a new super technique "Shin Yamaarashi"! It
may be too dangerous to be used in the match, but will be a fatal technique in
Ryoko from World
Heroes is based on Ryoko Tamura, who is a real life Japanese 2 or 3 time gold medallist in Judo.
(Not to be confused with Ryoko from Fighter's
History, whom is also based on Ryoko Tamura.)
