Ryuzaki is a lower class Strider that carries out field missions presumably to distribute supplies to other agents on duty. He's known to have been in at least China and Kazakh, losing his "Attack Boots" on the former and leaving a disk recording mentioning that fact on the latter.
StoryEditAfrica's underground caves, asking Hiryu to go for Matic, claiming "it's all his scheme". This hinting that he may have been doing some investigations himself.
Ryuzaki wears a blue Shinobi Shozoku, with white armored gloves, pauldrons, and boots. This uniform is similar to the one used by the lower-ranked Striders in the manga, making him likely a C Class in the organization.
- Since Ryuzaki's only purpose is to guide the player, he's never actually seen taking any action on-screen.
- Despite having few appearances and almost no relevance to the plot itself, Ryuzaki remains quite a popular character among fans.
- In the prototype version of the game, Ryuzaki's Disk #1 is found at the solitary cell in Kazakh's underground dungeon rather than at the entrance to the quarters. Perhaps the original intention was to imply Ryuzaki was held captive at that cell at some point before the game's events.
