For his video game counter, see Raika.

Raika (ライカ) is the tritagonist of the MegaMan NT Warrior anime series, debuting in Axess. Initially a cold and aloof NetSavior from Sharo, Raika and his NetNavi SearchMan.EXE focuse squarely on the mission and little else, willing to sacrifice others as "collateral" damage if they get in the way. Over the course of ths show, Raika eventually opens up and becomes a good friend of Lan Hikari and Chaud Blaze, and the three form a team. When merged with SearchMan, Raika becomes C.F. SearchMan.

Overview

Raika and SearchMan in Stream's intro.

Like his video game counterpart, Raika is a cold, calculated, and at times ruthless operator who cares little about who gets in the way so long as he completes the mission.

History

MegaMan NT Warrior Axess

Using a combination of quick thinking and his tactical NetNavi, SearchMan, few have ever come close to beating them. Disgusted by the fact that Japan’s Net Saviors rely on Synchro Chips and Cross Fusion to defeat their enemies, he continually insults Lan's and MegaMan's intelligence and inability to analyze battle situations. During VideoMan.EXE's attack on a movie theater, Lan and MegaMan Cross Fuse to confront him. However, VideoMan proves too tricky an opponent for R-MegaMan and ends up defeating him. He is about to delete R-MegaMan. Meanwhile, Raika outwitted all the viruses in the Dimensional Area and reaches the Generator. He jacks in SearchMan who proceeds to destroy the Generator and save MegaMan.

He later appears when Lan is called to Sharo to free a rare metal mine from FridgeMan. Raika is concerned about another "mission", but his leader (later revealed to be his uncle) wouldn't allow it. Raika would disobey orders by grabbing onto Lan during a Cross Fusion, who was trying to get through a temporarily lowered Dimensional Area, resulting in both entering the mine. Even though Lan lashed out at him at first, he revealed his motives: he wanted to help rescue "Sharo's Greatest Hero", who was trapped in the mine at the time. This "hero" is revealed to be a dog who has the ability to sniff out rare metal, changing Sharo from a nation of poverity to a wealthy country. With Lan's help, he rescues the dog, and SearchMan helps repel ColdMan. After this, Raika treats Lan more warmly, even smiling at him after the mission was completed.

Rockman.EXE Stream

The past is forgotten (although not by much), when Raika returns in Stream with a new Synchro Chip (and a slightly better attitude), completing the Cross Fusion trio and adding a new member to the chosen marked with the Crest of Duo. This is rather ironic, as Raika previously would have never even considered or relied on Cross Fusing in battle. He also seems to develop a love interest with Princess Pride.

Trivia

  • Raika is the only character that can actually drop his main weapon, the Search Rifle, to pick up another weapon during a Cross Fusion. This makes it easier and quicker to switch between weapons, but it also means he can lose the Search Rifle if he takes too much damage on the downside.
  • It's revealed in Stream that Raika is an excellent fencer. This is very much to his advantage, as upon losing his Search Rifle as C.F.SearchMan, his next weapon is often the Katana Battle Chip, which can end up dealing a lot of damage.
  • He can also pilot aircraft. In Rockman.EXE Movie, he meets Chaud and Lan at the rendezvous point piloting an aircraft that bears a strong resemblance to an F-22 Raptor.
