Makino Ruki is one of the main protagonists of Digimon Tamers. She is the partner of Renamon.


At the start, Ruki was cold and oftentimes competitive. Her initial goal was for Renamon to defeat as many Digimon as possible so that she can load their data and evolve. Unfriendly toward Matsuda Takato and Lee Jianliang in the beginning, she gradually opened up to them and her partner, softening her stance on them while retaining the confidence she held at the beginning. Eventually, she became a close ally to the group.


Card Game Evolution[edit]




Ruki was born to her mother and father when her mother was only 18 years old. However, after several years, her parents divorced, and Ruki seldom saw her father from that point onward.

A year before the series started, Ruki participated in the Digimon Grand Prix and got to the final round, but was defeated by Akiyama Ryo, who disappeared shortly afterwards. In the next Grand Prix, where he failed to appear, she was the winner, and was given the title of "the Digimon Queen".

Following her victory, Ruki was confronted by a multitude of Digimon, who all wanted her to tame them. Ruki declared that she only wanted a powerful Digimon partner, causing a Blue Card to appear. The Card, upon being slashed through her Card Reader, caused the Card Reader to transform into a D-Ark and allow her partner, Renamon, to enter the Real World. Ruki began to locate Digital Fields and destroy the Digimon that emerged in them, believing that their data would give Renamon the power to Evolve.
