Kyoko Minazuki



Kyoko Minazuki is a school nurse and later chemistry teacher at Justice High School. In Rival Schools, she is sent along with Hideo to recruit students to the school. Like Hideo, she too is captured and brainwashed to do the school's bidding until being freed by students from Taiyo High. In her ending in the game, the values she gains from the ordeal moves her to convict a former employer for corruption, and she eventually accepts Hideo's marriage proposal.

In Project Justice, Kyoko appears with Hideo and Hayato in the Justice High storyline, investigating the cause of the new school attacks. In the story's ending, she is shown taking care of Hideo and reminding him of their wedding.

If the school nurse at my high school looked like Kyoko, I would have been sick a lot. ^o^ Adjustment please! Kyoko is naturally a great and incredibly clever design in the Rival Schools series. She really nails that "milf" archetype. lol. Kyoko and Hideo make a pretty badass (and hilarious) duo in the series. I always enjoyed their in-game storyline. Kyoko's outfit is simple and to the point, but it works perfectly in the series.

One of the most original elements of Kyoko's design is that she can give her teammates quick massages to increase their health.... Hilarious and innovative stuff from 90's Capcom. You also gotta love the mini game in the PS1 version where Kyoko can actually give you a massage through your Dual Shock controller. Virtual reality shit! Like many Rival Schools designs, Kyoko is memorable and a very likeable character in the series. She's got some cool kicks as well!
