Ryomaru "Ryo" Tetsumaki is the main protagonist of Total Drama Sujira. He is a renowned Devil Hunter at Chojiakuma Academy, killing the devil forces of MAR alongside his stepsister, Kazumi Ushimora. Ryo's number one goal is to become a Sujira God; which is something he achieves at the end of the first series. He is also a member of the Sujira Assault Squadron, as the leader (Gendo Nara was intially the group's leader prior to Ryo and Kazumi entering the organization). Ryo also has a devil partner in the form of Hydraken.

During the end of the original series, Ryo marries Nekora Habarushi and they have a child named Taku Habamaki, who is the main protagonist of Total Drama Sujira: Eva Code. In the second series, he says to his son that he is venturing the entire universe with Nekora.


Ryo is a 16-year-old boy of average height and a rather attractive build. He has unkempt red hair with a dagger-like ahoge and sea green eyes. His normal attire is made up of a black t-shirt, a blue fingerless glove on his left hand, saggy brown jeans, and white sneakers. While at Chojiakuma Academy, Ryo wears the school's outfit, which consists of a neon blue dress shirt, a black blazer with matching pants, and a white tie on top.

At the age of four, Ryo's hair was a lighter shade of red. He wore a fuchsia-colored robe, which was once property of the Tetsumaki Clan. To complete this old attire of his, Ryo's arms were adorned with silver wrappings.

In Eva Code, Ryo is now 31 years of age and, of course, appears to have grown a few inches. His red hair now has strawberry blonde streaks in it, and he somehow lost his ahoge. Ryo's new attire consists of a silver trench coat, black leather jeans, and a wedding ring on his right hand's index finger.


Ever since he was just a young boy, Ryo always had a very bright and cheerful attitude. He has never once backed down from any challenges, no matter how risk-taking they were. His determination and supporting of those that felt "down in the gutter" were characteristics that Kai passed down to him. Even after MAR killed his father, Ryo decided not to beat himself up about the situation. Although he still harbors a grudge against the former for his actions, he also did not want to keep living in fear because of it.

On a normal day, Ryo seems to maintain a bit of a childish air around him, preferring sleep to devil hunting (according to creator Yoshiyuki Sadamoto). He usually has normal conversations with his childhood friends, but can sometimes go too far in certain discussions. He tends to crack jokes from time to time, and also enjoys taunting any devil or opponent he's up against. Ryo sometimes jumps into conclusions, in which some perceive him as a little reckless.

Ryo is also fervent when it comes to his playboy tendencies. Most of the female cast (sans his stepsister, Kazumi, for obvious reasons) is completely smitten when they set their eyes on him and vice-versa. They not only follow him nearly everywhere he goes, they ask for his autographs; part of this trait stems from Kai as well, and it's played for comedy rather than any real seriousness. Ryo does, however, have an intense disdain for perverts... and hates being mislabeled as one. Due to this hatred, he can withstand the body of a well-endowed woman with no effort and often starts angrily nagging about such things.

When the situation calls for it, Ryo replaces his typical disposition with a more focused and somewhat darker personality. Ryo almost always kills his assigned devils since he dislikes their company and them ruining the universe. He at one point in the series has also become cold in his mannerisms and deadly, notably seen when he gives Daisuke a severe beating near the end of The Liberators Arc; even Gendo was shocked by this brief, sudden change.

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

Ryo is an all-around sort of person whenever it comes to missions or fights. He possesses no glaring weaknesses, yet not a lot of highlighted strengths either; arguably, many have noted that his sheer willpower alone makes up for these drawbacks. He is willing to try anything during a battle or a Devil Hunter mission, even if it is a tad bit risky. Because of his determination (according to Hydraken), a certain amount of Ryo's own abilities and special techniques are said to improve at any given point.


  • Excruciating Stomp of the Dragon: Ryo gathers up a monstrous quantity of power, stores it within either one of his feet, and tramples the ground. Usually, he uses it as a defensive tactic moreso than attacking purposes, as the move paralyzes a foe for thirty seconds.
  • Bullet Palm: As the name of the technique suggests, Ryo somehow has the skill to unleash death-causing bullets out from his right hand. The bullets themselves are so impervious that they can annihilate pretty much anything in Ryo's path; for example, a gigantic steamroller. Over time, Hydraken taught him how to shoot the bullets from both hands instead of just one.
  • Gun-mor: The boy can summon a barrier around him that is shaped similarily to an assault rifle, oddly enough, despite his two weapons being submachine guns. Much like his "ESotD", Ryo's Gun-mor technique's effects last for no more than thirty seconds.
  • Shell Clone: Ryo "rips his body apart" and a black figure emerges on his left, eventually resembling a shadow version of himself. The doppelganger's sole purpose on the battlefield is to only mirror whatever action the user is doing; best demonstrated when Ryo punched Ren Kimura in the face, while the former's shadow performed the same move. When the clone has been destroyed, it reverts to a group of shells, hence the name.
  • Visceral Break: Ryo unsually sinks into the ground and can freely move into any area of the battlefield; the opponent or enemy will occasionally assume that he retreated. In order for the actual attack to work properly, which involves multiple slaps and kicks to the temple, Ryo has to wait for approximately twenty-two seconds before he can rise from the ground itself.
  • Metsuken: This move is the Devil Hunter's signature technique, alongside his "Gatling Punisher". Ryo tightly closes his fist, and then slowly opens it back up in the air, thereby absorbing an ultimate amount of energy. Next, the energy transforms itself into a rough, spiky ball that has a black color to it. What makes the "Metsuken" so versatile is that it can be used for both close combat and as a ranged weapon. Ryo apparently learned the attack from Hydraken, who noticed that he had minimal control at first; he therefore trained him in order to fully master the ability. Also, he gained three other variations over the course of the series.
    • Sparking Metsuken: A collaboration technique, which is performed by Ryo and Hydraken. The both of them mimic the appropriate movements required in order to initiate a typical "Metsuken" attack, but then they suddenly mark "new territory" as the Devil Hunter/Devil God duo fuse their own skills together. The result is a massive sphere of unrelenting power that is black on the left side and a deep purple on the right. Unlike the original "Metsuken", this version was created for long-range purposes only; despite this small fact, once the giant ball is truly unleashed, the one receiving the brunt of the attack will either sustain critical damage, or perhaps death.

Hokori and Dengeki-senEdit

These are two submachine guns that were given to Ryo by Souichiro Kaworu when the former was at least 10 years old. Although their physical appearances hardly differ (except that one is black and the other happens to be a light blue color), what's more important happens to be their statistics: "Hokori" is favored as a speed/endurance-type weapon, and "Dengeki-sen" is seen as an offense/block-type firearm. Other than all of that, however, Ryo normally uses the both of them together in order to achieve some form of balance.
