However, as a Storm Rider she is more strong-willed as a person, and punishes the Skull Saders, who attacked Ikki, with the other members of the Noyamano household, for misusing ATs. Ringo, encumbered by her duty as the leader of the Sleeping Forest, is put in a difficult position, due to the power struggle between Sleeping Forest, who seeks to protect the Sky Regalia, and Genesis, who seeks to take the Sky Regalia.
She was put in a dilemma when Ikki was given reign over Genesis; since that directly made him her enemy. Ikki taking over Genesis caused Sleeping Forest to respond in kind, attacking and paralyzing Simca, who had recruited Ikki, waistdown.
Ringo led the attack as the true successor of the Sleeping Forest, 'Crazy Apple'. After realizing that Ikki had reached a level of riding where he was a serious threat to Sleeping Forest, she put herself in battle with a serious Ikki, and decided to crush him and remove him forcibly from the world of ATs, so that he would not die by getting caught in between. The Ringo when she is 'Crazy Apple' seems to be an entirely different person, taunting, cold, and ferocious in her attacks.
She mocks Ikki for his little tricks and doesn't hold back in all her attacks, even releasing the Thorn Regalia with the intention of taking Ikki down. She destroyed Ikki's Infinity Atmosphere because he was armed with the fake Wind Regalia, though she took equal damage in return.
Her infinity atmosphere is called " 'Infinite Chain' Turquoise Sonia" Eventually Ikki came to understand Ringo to a level where words were not needed and after Ringo fell, exhausted from the race, he picks her up and told her he forgives her and thanked her for going easy on Simca. He then finished the race with a draw, carrying Ringo all the way to the end point of the race.
Ringo later learns that Ikki was going to leave the Noyamano household to pursue his own path and to prevent a recurrence of such events and Ringo acknowledges his path and let him 'go outside his cage to find his wings'. Before he left, Ringo finally confessed to Ikki. Just before the battle against Genesis, Sora reveals a captive Rika and is trying to force the team to give up their advantage in the forest. Ringo, as leader, decides to abandon Rika in favor of keeping their advantage.
This puts her at odds with Mikan, who believes they should go rescue their sister. When Mikan decides to go help out Rika despite knowing that her life is in considerable danger, Ringo forces Mikan to duel with her in order for Mikan to leave to help Rika, because Mikan would face certain death if she went against Genesis alone. Ikki, eavesdropping on their conversation, decides to help them out by going out himself to save Rika. This reinforces Ringo's love for Ikki and she realizes that Ikki has always been there for her in her time of need.
In the moment for the tuning of Ikki's regalia, with Kururu unable do to it, Ikki chose her to do it because she's the girl that always be by his side and the only one that really knows him in that way she became Ikki's Link Tuner. She is a fiery-tempered tomboyish girl with short messy hair, and the disciplinarian of the group. She often beats up Ikki with her wrestling moves. She has a soft spot for retro gamessomething which Simca uses to initially gain her favor. Mikan is the only one who chooses to save Rika over keeping their advantage, even going so far as to quit the team in order to do so.

She mentions that if it were Rika alone who was in danger, she wouldn't bother saving her, but because Rika was pregnant, she would do anything to save her. She also states that she just wants Rika to be happy, countering her previous statements for saving her.
She is constantly referred to as a gorilla, due to her brute strength and irritable personality. Shiraume Noyamano[ edit ] Voiced by: Her hobby is the creation of puppets in the guise of gorgons, and she's always seen carrying one with her.
She is supposedly the weakest member of Sleeping Forest in terms of AT fighting skills, though as a gravity child, she is able to battle extremely well in the Tropheum.
Ume is the youngest child in the Noyamano family, being only 10 years old, and thus is more doted on among the sisters.
relationships with ikki
She keeps to herself for the most part, playing with her weird dolls, which she apparently makes herself. Her personality is more quiet and passive as compared to her aggressive sisters, and she seems to have eccentric tastes. She wears a strange eye patch in her hair and is often dressed in long-sleeved dresses that is much too large for her it seems. As with the other Noyamano sisters, she dotes on Ikki like a part of their family, though Ringo is the only one to have stepped from a brotherly-sisterly love to a romantic relationship in the family.
Though she is the weakest of the Gravity Children, she can easily defeat Ikki in the Tropheum, due to her being accustomed in fighting in 0G, though, this was in a comical context and therefore, her true capability is unknown.
She is often bullied on by Ikki, which she often holds grudges, but loves him all the same. It has been confirmed that Ume is a Ring Road rider, and it is likely that she could use it in an offensive manner like Kanon does. Her skill with technology is shown to be of extraordinary standards, from creating a 'rocket AT' for Ikki early in the manga which was scrapped due to her not being in her right senses at that time to creating strange spiderlike robotic machines which she uses to travels on.
Her speed is shown to be on par with genius Tuner Kururu, as they both repaired the robot they were riding on the second it was dismantled by a Time Road user.
This attack is made by kicking the air twice in rapid succession, generating the heat in the first kick and sending it towards his opponent in the next.
Although her support is mostly in the way of advice, she occasionally lends her direct efforts under the guise of "Croissant Mask", though her need for an alter-ego is not immediately clear.
Through Kogarasumaru's battles, it is eventually revealed that Ringo is actually the Thorn Queenlegitimate successor and leader of Sleeping Forest, and therefore a powerful Storm Rider involved with some of the greatest mysteries of the A-T world.
Her position puts her at odds with Ikki when Genesisa rival team led by migratory bird Simca and determined to overthrow Sleeping Forest, subordinates itself under Kogarasumaru's leadership. However, Ringo continues to support Ikki. When Tridentsone of Genesis' sub-teams, challenges Ikki with the Devil's 33 jump, Ringo places herself at the goal point in lieu of thirty-three actual people lying side-by-side.
During this trial, it is revealed that as children, her wish to see their parents encourages Ikki to climb Tokyo Tower, where he is introduced to the sky.
It is from that point Ringo draws her belief in Ikki's ability to truly fly and is inspired to find a way to fly along with him. Ultimately, Ringo's position in Sleeping Forest can no longer be ignored. As the time draws closer to the opening of Tropaion TowerSleeping Forest begins targeting all major teams and riders capable of challenging them.
Among the victims is Simca, who is attacked and temporarily crippled under Ringo's orders. When Ikki discovers Ringo's role in incapacitating Simca, he considers her a traitor and runs from her. To this end, she is willing to bar his way to Kingship, going so far as to brutally attack him.
Her superior experience overwhelms Ikki during the earlier stages of the battle, but Kururu Sumeragi saves him with a mid-air installation of counterfeit Bagram prototype cores. Even using faulty Regalia, Ikki is able to match Ringo's strength.
The climax of the battle occurs when Ikki uses the Wind Regalia's Infinity Atmospherethreatening to kill Ringo with debris driven by high-speed winds.
Although she considers letting herself be killed to stop the never-ending battles, Ringo ultimately uses her Infinity Atmosphere to shred apart Ikki's, preventing him from becoming overtaken by the Regalia's deadly power. The battle eventually ends when an exhausted Ringo collapses a few feet from the finish line. Ikki, finally understanding her feelings, decides to make the match a draw by carrying Ringo to the finish line.
Afterwards, Ikki leaves the Noyamano residence and Ringo kisses him goodbye though she slaps him right afterward. Kilik reveals to Ikki the history of the Tropaion Tower and its connection to the Gravity Childrenof whom Ringo and sisters Ume and Mikan is part of a later generation. Ringo, Ume, and Mikan were, as children, given to Rika, who shortly afterward takes in Ikki.
Kilik also reveals why Ringo is considered leader of Sleeping Forest. The final battle of the Gram Scale Tournament takes place in a descending shaft inside the Tropaion Tower, thereby becoming an enormously pressurized environment. This pressure overwhelms most people, but Ringo's specific capabilities as Thorn Queen makes such an environment her ideal battleground. Kilik's intent in bringing Ikki inside the Tropaion Tower is to test his worthiness of attaining the Sky Regalia.
However, Takeuchi Sora then reveals himself as the real leader of Genesis, having just stolen the Wind Regalia. This betrayal emotionally traumatizes Ikki, who had come to see Sora as an older brother figure. Ringo is helpless to comfort Ikki and afterward her primary duties to Sleeping Forest prevent her from helping Ikki outright any longer.
Even so, she continues to support Kogarasumaru indirectly. Ringo also uses her "Croissant Mask" guise to offer Kogarasumaru an alternative method for entering the Grand Scale tournament when they are disqualified.
Before she leaves for that battle, Ringo in the guise of Croissant Mask tells Ikki she loves him and tells Kururu to take her place as Kogarasumaru's number-one supporter. Before the battle between Sleeping Forest and Genesis even begins, Sora reveals that he has taken Rika hostage to draw Sleeping Forest outside of the Tower, where they would have an advantage.
Although Ringo is distressed for her sister, she is determined to stay in the Tower, even preventing Mikan from leaving. At the point where the two sisters are about to fight, Ikki calls in, having been told by Aeon Clock the situation. He makes a deal with Kilik: Just after Kogarasumaru defeats Sleipnire and is on their way to save Rika, Canon attacks Ringo in the Tower under the pretense of bringing her the new design of her Regalia. He drives her out of the Tower, then reveals that his actions were commanded by Kilik, who encourages Ringo to do what she truly wants to do.
President-elect Omahato ask for Ringo's help in their next plan: Ringo decides to follow them and en route she encounters and defeats Caesar, who is sent to prevent them. Ikki and Ringo Kiss In Chapterafter the battle of Kogarasumaru and GenesisRingo was chosen by Ikki to be his tuner since Kururu made herself the power source to control the sinking of the aircraft carrier they're in.
In Chaptershe accepted the offer and finally confesses her love for Ikki. When the tuning process is about to begin. She and ikki think about everything that has happened up until this point and kiss.
In Chaptershe and Ikki were seen with a new pair of A-T's seemingly Ikki was not the only one with an enhanced A-T after the tuning process at the aircraft. She later gets hit by Sora's powerful attack to protect Ikki and almost freezes from the cold atmosphere if not for Ikki saving her.
She later bandages her left eye and seems to be in pain, but endures it and continues with Ikki. When Ikki and Ringo split up and Ikki stays back to keep Sora and Rika at bay, Ringo continues downward to win the race while commenting how her body feels torn from her injuries and the Sonia Road, feeling like she's poisoned on the inside, but still continues.
When Sora blocks her way, she heads outside and continues down despite protests from others stating that if she continues this way in her condition, she'll die and her body will be torn apart. Ringo activates her regalia and thinks to herself that under any circumstances Ikki can do anything that she and everyone else cannot do.
