The character of Rikku undergoes a big change by the time the sequel to Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2 rolls around. Not only is she no longer afraid of thunder and lightning, which is evinced by her week-long stay in the Thunder Plains, but she’s more high-strung and energetic. Her adroitness with machinery, which was already impressive in Final Fantasy X, is even more impressive in FFX-2 as well, and her confidence in her abilities has grown in commensurate fashion.
Rikku has also undergone a makeover to better suit her personality change; she sports a yellow bikini, mini-skirt, a red and yellow scarf and a sky blue bandana. She also sports a different hairstyle, in a hanging, braided style as opposed to wearing it up. Cosplayer Madison Kate, AKA Madikat perfectly captures the look of Rikku’s Final Fantasy X-2 refashioning with this killer cosplay. Check out the gallery:
Rikku is an Al Bhed, a tribe of technologists in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2.
“Oh, I have an idea! We could be “Your Friendly Neighbourhood Gullwings”!”
