Rikku from Final Fantasy X and X-2 is one of the most beloved characters of the franchise. To this day, she is a popular choice for cosplay. With the release of the HD version of the two games, fans were ecstatic to once again step into the world of Spira and play as the young, Al-bhed mechanic. But, even the most likable characters in video games can have a few hiccups in their physical appearance, story, or job class.
The tenth game of the Final Fantasy series, Square 's best-selling role-playing video game Final Fantasy X features several fictional characters designed by Tetsuya Nomura who wanted the main characters' designs and names to be connected with their personalities and roles in the plot. The game takes place in the fictional universe of Spira that features multiple tribes. The game's sequel released in , Final Fantasy X-2 , takes place two years after the events in Final Fantasy X and uses new and returning characters. There are seven main playable characters in Final Fantasy X starting with Tidus , a skilled blitzball player from Zanarkand who is lost in the world of Spira after an encounter with an enormous creature called Sin and searches for a way home.

Final Fantasy X-2 features Yuna, Rikku, and the newly introduced Paine as playable characters in their quest to find spheres across Spira and find clues regarding Tidus' current location.
Rikku is a young Al Bhed girl introduced very early on in the game, although she is the last character to join the party doing so at the Moonflow area. Her true identity as an Al Bhed remains hidden from the likes of Yevonites such as Wakka in an attempt to avoid persecution. However, this fact is inevitably leaked and Wakka soon gets over the shock accepting Rikku as a valuable guardian. Rikku's father Cid is leader of the Al Bhed Home, and her brother Brother is not only the airship pilot but also an excellent Blitzball player.
