Rainbow Mika (real name: Mika Nanakawa), also known as R. Mika, is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter Alpha 3. She is a Japanese professional wrestler from the Iwashigahama Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling organization, trained by the domineering Yoko Harmageddon.

In Street Fighter Alpha 3, she was voiced by Junko Takeuchi, who also voiced Naruto Uzumaki.

In Street Fighter V, she was voiced by Hiromi Igarashi in the Japanese version, and by Bonnie Gordon in the English version.

Bio

Mika Nanakawa wanted to become a female pro wrestler in a Japanese pro wrestling circuit. To promote her image, she decided to travel around the world to fight worthy opponents, and to find her idol Zangief. Her trainer's name is Yoko Harmageddon and appears in some of R. Mika's win poses. After the psycho drive was destroyed in SFA3, Mika made her debut as a professional wrestler. In SFV, Mika fights alongside her tag-team partner, Yamato Nadeshiko.

Story

During the events of Street Fighter Alpha 3, it is known that Rainbow Mika encountered and fought two people of note, Karin Kanzuki and The Red Cyclone himself. While winner is unknown in their fight, Karin was impressed with Mika's performance and decided to sponsor her endeavor of becoming the "Star of the ring." Mika did manage to defeat Zangief, though it is highly implied that Zangief lost that match on purpose to bolster her confidence as a wrestler. It not known whether or not Rainbow Mika was involved in Zangief's mission against Shadaloo.

Trivia

  • Nanakawa in kanji means "seven rivers," and her first name Mika means roughly "beautiful blossom".
  • In the Japanese dubs, R. Mika ends most of her sentences with "-ssu".
  • R. Mika is the only playable female wrestler in the Street Fighter series.
  • The All About Street Fighter Zero 3 guidebook states that R. Mika's hobbies are running on sandy beaches, push-ups, and wrestler's bridge. It also states that her special skill is gluttony.
  • R. Mika shares the same birthday with Sakura.
  • R. Mika's attire appears as a Swap Costume for Tekken character Kuma in Street Fighter X Tekken.[3]
  • Junko Takeuchi, R. Mika's voice actress in Street Fighter Alpha 3, is known for voicing the protagonist Naruto Uzumaki in the original Japanese language version of the Naruto and Shippuden anime, even though her role as R. Mika predates it.
  • Mika's blue eyes are likely due to contact lenses. In her alternate colors, her eyes always match the color of her outfit.
  • According to Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono, he really wanted R. Mika in Street Fighter IV but his boss wouldn't let him, saying that she "won't fit" in the game.
  • Despite Street Fighter V already having a wrestling ring stage, (Ring of Destiny, from Capcom's 2016 Pro Tour tournament), R. Mika apparently has an unused wrestling level shown within her own official character artwork. This stage can also be seen briefly in the A Shadow Falls story mode, albeit only for a few cutscenes with Mika, Zangief, Laura, and Alex making small entrances. But other than a few Segways, it cannot be used or seen anywhere else. It's also noted it is, in fact, a different stage than the Ring of Destiny itself, as the overall structure of Mika's version is smaller in scale, and her name is held along signs all throughout the arena. Don Sauvage also makes a cameo in the unknown ring stage during the story mode.
