Rika Nonaka of Digimon Tamers 03
Rika Nonaka is Renamon's Tamer, and is also known as the "Digimon Queen," a title earned through winning the Digimon card tournament shortly before the Tamers' adventures began.Rika's mother, Rumiko, gave birth to her when she was still only a teenager, and as such is still a young mother who is more interested in being Rika's friend than a parental figure - but the tough, tomboyish Rika dislikes her mother's distinctly feminine profession and feels distanced from her.With the absence of her father following her parent's divorce, Rika and her mother live with Seiko Hata, Rumiko's mother and Rika's grandmother.
was deliberately conceived as the strongest character of the Tamers group so that she
would appeal to the target demographic of young males who watch the show (so that hence, they would buy merchandise relating to her).
proved a powerful fighting team, defeating many Bio-Emerged Digimon
, but Rika
did not believe in the idea of partnership, thinking that Digimon only existed to fight.Their battle with a Lynxmon was seen by Takato
dreams, and two nights later, they fought with a Goblinmon which Digivolved into a Fugamon.The next day, Rika
and Guilmon in the park, but the battle was broken up by Henry, only to be resumed the day after in an underground parking garage.
That night, Rika
wondered how Gargomon had been able to Digivolve, when Renamon
had so far failed to.Rika
appeared to take down the Vilemon that had Bio-Emerged at Takato's
school, but rebuffed thanks, and affection from Calumon.
's mother had to run out on a talk at school to attend a photo shoot, Rika spied a Digital Field as he
walked home.After quickly changing, she
faced off against the newly Bio-Emerged Digimon, an Allomon, but even with a Frozen Wind Modify Card, couldn't stand up to him.Angered by the arrival of the other Tamers and their Digimon
, seeing it as interference, Renamon
was able to freeze Allomon and destroy him, absorbing his
data.In the evening, Rika
reflected on the events that had led to her
becoming a Digimon Tamer, and was then alerted by her
D-Power to the presence of Impmon, who was conversing with Renamon
.That conversation, however, was interrupted by the Bio-Emergence of a Dokugumon, which Renamon
engaged before Rika
arrived.During the course of the battle, Rika
was caught in the spider's web, but was freed by Renamon
, who then took the full brunt of a Venom Blast to protect her
, then collapsed.Rika
told Renamon she
did not want her
to leave her
, and cried out her
name - prompting her
Digivolution into Kyubimon for the first time.Kyubimon destroyed Dokugumon and absorbed her
data, then explained to Rika
had Digivolved because Rika
had finally shown that she
cared for her
The following day, Rika
reflected on this, still not convinced that Digimon
were anything more than data.During the day, Takato
and Guilmon visited Rika's home, seeking advice on Guilmon's recent near-disappearance.She
didn't have a lot to offer, as she
thought that the disappearance of data was no great loss.When Guilmon then fully disappeared into an energy field in the tunnel beneath the park, Takato
and Henry called on Rika
to help them search for him.
When Guilmon battled Devidramon, Rika
watched the battle, as Renamon
would not get involved, deeming it Guilmon's fight.Guilmon won the fight by Digivolving into Growlmon, but he
found himself unable to De-Digivolve.As Takato
and Henry tried out several schemes to hide him, Rika
arrived to chastise their attempts at camouflage in the park.
When rain washed off the paint they had used to hide Growlmon, Rika
left them to deal with it.
Later, as Rika
reflected on Digivolution, she
felt as though she
was being followed, only to find that it was just Calumon.She
then bumped into her
mother, who thought that the "toy" was adorable, but after she
got away, told Calumon to scram, sending him running off in tears ... then felt the strange presence again.Returning home, Rika

more femininely, and then once again felt the presence following her

partner, to protect her

threw it back in her

didn't believe in partnership.When taking the subway, Rika

data, but as his

hated them, and she
and Kyubimon went their separate ways.Rika

was visited by Calumon, who tried to cheer her

, searching for her
every so often to see if she
had returned.When Renamon
battled some Flybeemon in the park, Rika
watched, but left before the battled ended, believing Renamon
had only ever used her
to gain data.In the evening, Rika
refused to talk to her
grandmother, who tried to explain that no-one can make it in the world on their own.As Renamon
then battled a Harpymon, Rika's D-Power alerted her
to the fight, and Calumon convinced her
to pay attention to it.Arriving at the battlefield, Rika

Shortly before the Juggernaut was activated.Rika
talked about partnership, and how it had changed them.When the Juggernaut was then brought online, it allowed the first Deva, Mihiramon to enter the real world.Renamon
was the first to fight him, Digivolving into Kyubimon to do so, but she
was quickly defeated.Gargomon then also fell, and Growlmon became WarGrowlmon to destroy him.
