Ninja Riot (Japanese: ニンジャ·ライオット Ninja Riot) is one of the antagonists of Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. He is a ninja and thief who works against his rivals Marilyn Flame, Argus Steel and Millis Steel to acquire a fortune through Diancie's power to create diamonds.

History

Riot without his mask

Riot appeared pursuing Diancie as she searched for Xerneas. He first attacked Diancie with his Greninja, also competing with Marilyn Flame and her Delphox around Avugnon Town. The two ganged up on Diancie and attacked her, but Ash intervened and told the two to stop. His Greninja was swiftly defeated by Pikachu, and Diancie escaped.

Later, Riot appeared near a forest, disguising himself within a tree. He attacked Diancie with his Greninja, and Ash and his friends attempted to fight it off. He revealed himself and battled Clemont's Chespin and Serena's Fennekin, but soon Ash intervened with his Froakie and Pikachu, and they fought off Riot and Greninja. As he attacked Diancie, however, Diancie's loyal Carbink servants interfered to protect Diancie. However, Millis Steel appeared and used her Chesnaught to fight off Greninja. Diancie then escaped once more.

After it received the power of the Fairy Aura from Xerneas, Riot and Marilyn attacked her in the Allearth Forest. However, Yveltal was awakened by the fighting and went on a rampage, during which Riot's Greninja and Ninjask were turned to stone by Oblivion Wing. He later found Marilyn crying over the loss of her Delphox and Yanmega to Yveltal. Having a change of heart, he removed his mask and offered comfort to her. Just as she accepted his affection, however, Yveltal aimed Oblivion Wing at them, and they embraced shortly before being killed as well. Later, the two of them were revived by Xerneas with Geomancy.

In the credits of the film, Riot — now dressed formally — visited the clothing shop where Marilyn had gotten work and proposed marriage to her.

Character

Riot proposing to Marilyn

Riot appears to be quite ambitious in his pursue of finding fortune through Diancie's diamonds. He is shown to be a rather ruthless thief, relentlessly pursuing Diancie and unhesitatingly competing against Marilyn Flame and the Steels to try and obtain Diancie for himself. He is shown to do this in a rather stealthy manner, seen as he attacked Diancie as well as Serena and co. while invisible.

Though he appears to be initially hostile towards Marilyn, it appeared throughout the movie that Riot had romantic feelings for her. This is hinted at when Riot saves Marilyn from falling into the pool of water, and later when he comforts her while she grieves over her Delphox, telling her to forget about Diancie. His relationship with Marilyn is ultimately confirmed when he proposes marriage to her. This romantic feeling also appears to be mutual.

It was then used to battle the other thieves's Pokémon and their fighting caused Yveltal to wake up from its slumber.
