Other Games

Hasebe was one of the more frequent female characters in the series, though her role varies from game to game. She seems to have feelings for Kunio, but it's a bit unclear whether she or Misako is his current girlfriend. She has usually been seen as the default girly-girl character, but in River City Super Sports Challenge: All Stars Special, she is revealed to be quite strong and a talented fighter; able to intimidate boys; in one scene, she even knocks three of them flying. She finally made her official playable debut in that game's first DLC, where she leads a team of other girls from the series; mostly cheerleaders. Curiously, her hair in that game is dark blue instead of her usual purple. Because Hasebe also serves as the game's MC, and the cheerleaders also affiliate with other teams in a non-playable capacity, playing as them in will result in two instances of a girl appearing in some scenes.


  • While the team she leads is called "Cheer Girls", Hasebe herself has not been depicted as a cheerleader. She does act as a cheerleader for the Historical Drama team (as Okoto).
