Riou (Suikoden II) VS Roxas (Kingdom Hearts)

He is the adopted son of Genkaku, and step brother to Nanami. As a young boy he was made fun of because he was an orphan, and spent all of his time with Nanami and his best friend, Jowy. As they reached their teens, he and Jowy joined the Unicorn Brigade of the Highland Army; where his skill in martial arts, taught to him by Genkaku, made him a formidable fighter.

After the Highland Army massacred the Unicorn Brigade and blamed it on Jowston's Army, he escaped and joined Viktor's mercenaries. Eventually, he ended up becoming the leader of the Dunan Unification movement, and led them to victory. After the Dunan Unification War, he disappeared along with the former Highland King, Jowy Blight (Atreides) and his sister, Nanami. He wears a circlet and shoulder pads that were given to him as a young boy by Genkaku, and fights with tonfar. - Blue Moon

Riou is a soldier of the Highland Army's Unicorn Youth Brigade and 16 years old at the beginning of Suikoden II. He wields a tonfa and becomes the bearer of the Bright Shield Rune.

The Bright Shield Rune is a separable aspect of the Rune of the Beginning representing the power to protect.

The Shield Rune is one of the halves of the Rune of the Beginning. Representing the defensive power, and nature of stability and protection in order for creation in "the beginning," this rune holds amazing restorative powers. Much of the power is manifested in the form of shields, and all of the spells have a restorative effect.

The earliest known usage of the Bright Shield Rune was by Master Genkaku, hero of Jowston. It's combative nature drove him to battle his friend, Han Cunningham. When Genkaku refused to fight in the duel, Highland won the territory surrounding Kyaro Town, where he later resided.

Han and Genkaku resolve their disputes and seal their runes away at the shrine at Toto Village. The runes remained there until Luca Blight's attack on the village many years later, when Jowy and Riou are led by Pilika to the shrine.

Roxas is Sora's Nobody. His name is an anagram of Sora with the letter X added. Prior to the events of Kingdom Hearts II he was the thirteenth member of Organization XIII, and bore the title "Key of Destiny". He was also the mysterious hooded figure in Another Side, Another Story as well as in Deep Dive.

In battle, Roxas dual-wields two Keyblades, Oathkeeper and Oblivion (both of which represent Sora's feelings towards Kairi and Riku, respectively), although he can also wield the Kingdom Key, such as during the events of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and his time in virtual Twilight Town. He controls the element of light and the Samurai Nobodies. Although it would normally be impossible for a Nobody to wield a Keyblade, Roxas, as the Nobody of the chosen wielder, Sora, can wield them. Of course, as the Heartless use the Keyblades as a homing signal, he is constantly under attack by them when not under the protection of Organization XIII, though they do not seek out his heart, unlike Sora. However, as the Organization's goal is to gather as many hearts as possible by using the Keyblade to extract them from Heartless, Roxas's inclusion to the Organization was actually their saving grace, as they no longer had to manipulate Sora, until Roxas deserted the Organization.

When he attacks with his full power and the element of Light, Roxas becomes a much more dangerous foe. He can glide at fast speeds, so fast in fact that he leaves behind a lens flare, and control thirteen sword-shaped shields of light energy which can connect to form a laser array. He can levitate the keyblades in the air and whirl and spin them rapidly, showing a great deal of proficiency and skill with the blades, and can also counter any extended combo with a more powerful one of his own, even creating a ring of damage just by twirling them in a circle. His special attack involves him floating in the air and shooting his thirteen light shields around the arena, which then light it up in a thick twilight mist as Roxas begins shooting blue spheres of light at his opponent from energy gathered in his hands. He'll often attack rapidly from side-to-side, confusing the opponent, leaving a trail of light behind him. He can also perform the Duel Bout technique (similar to his Samurai Nobodies) where he rushes at his opponent and slashes at them quicker than the blink of an eye, causing intense damage if not repelled, the twist is that Sora can utilize Roxas' keyblades if he does repel the attack. However, when Sora steals Roxas' keyblades, Roxas resorts to utilizing his light shields to full effect, before moving in to steal his keyblades back from Sora.

In comparison to Sora, Roxas seems to have a far more aggressive style: he is constantly on the offensive, and abandons any defensive moves he had previously used, such as the Guard technique, in favour of speed and strength. Roxas' power is relatively the same as Sora's was during his first time in Hollow Bastion; superior to Axel but below Xemnas. When he fuses with Sora, his power skyrockets (as well as Sora as they benefit from each other) and they become equal. This gives birth to Sora's ultimate Drive Form, the Final Form. Final Form's battle style is very similar to the one that Roxas uses in his fight with Sora.

In essence, Roxas' techniques are his own unique versions of certain moves of the five Drive Forms of Sora.

In Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix+, after you have defeated Roxas, you obtain a special keyblade modeled after himself, Two Across Keyblade.

They both have light elements who would win i bet ur gonna vote for roxas
