  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Rather mild case. She wants Shido's affection, and initially is jealous of Yayoi since Shido spends so much time with her. Riho is less clingy after she becomes a Secret Keeper.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Undergoes an Emergency Transformation in episode 4. She becomes a sort of apprentice to Shido, who continues to protect her while showing her how to get by as a vampire.
  • Girl Friday: Shido hired her out of pity for her situation (see below: Parental Abandonment) to do office chores that probably don't even need doing.
  • May–December Romance: After she becomes a vampire she actually has a shot with Shido, despite an age gap of centuries. Their romantic relationship begins with string-pulling by Cain, of all people.

  • Parental Abandonment: Riho's parents were killed by a Nightbreed.
  • Plucky Office Girl: She wants to do more than fetch Shido's coffee, and her persistence in trying to prove herself to Shido gets her on the wrong side of the Masquerade.

  • Head Pet: In the original game, Guni inhabits Shido's ear and can be seen popping in and out of his head. The early part of the reflects this by showing Guni emerging from Shido's hair, but the later parts of the show drop this.
  • Snarky Non-Human Sidekick
