Roku is one of the characters from Pop'n Music 6.


A patriotic Hip Rock Samurai wandering all over the world while mastering his sword and sayings.
He's popular as a collector of the calligraphy that he writes around the city. The sound speaks now. The sound speaks now.
He had a samurai soul before it was even cool. Yeah.

Unlike some characters, Roku is mostly silent and stoic. He is described as a skilled Hip Rock Samurai with his own jeopardy in Japan. He seems to be stealthy and writes down what he sees, hears, or the places he's been in kanji. Roku always keeps his headphones on his neck. In Pop'n Music Lapistoria, Roku wields a cerulean diamond-shaped lapis.

Character Information

See Roku/Character Information.


Hip Rock

Roku appears with cerulean-colored hair that was formed into sharp and double-splitting sections. He wears a white robe with black sections, red headphones around his neck, black circle centered in his robe, and sandals. He wields a katana and a paintbrush tipped with black paint. He then has black piercings to his earlobe and the upper ears.

In his 2P color palette, Roku's skin tone chnages to brown, and his eyes are colored dark green. Roku's hair color is fuchsia instead of cerulean, and his entire attire is colored turquoise. His headphones have a violet hue, also his sandals; Roku's obi remains identical. Although Roku receives his first 2P color palette, it could be temporarily seen,  but rarely found.

His mysterious 3P color palette presents that Roku's skin tone changes to an apricot color, and his eyes are colored deep plum. Roku's hair shifted to red instead of either cerulean or fuchsia. His entire robe is colored into a dark olive drab color and the round highlight is colored dark turquoise. His other highlights are colored forest green, and his sandals and headphones are colored violet. This palette is temporarily confirmed in Hip Rock 3.5 from Pop'n Music 18 Sengoku Retsuden.

Hip Rock 2

Roku excels by wearing a black robe with black and red sections, and his headphones and sandals remain its colors. He accessorized himself with his red parasol and his hair was a little wax out.

Roku's 2P color palette drastically altered his hues. The skin tone again changes to brown, but his eyes are light green and his hair is cream yellow. His robe is entirely white and was shaded light blue on the bottom. Roku's head set is colored platinum and blue; also, the parasol, black-blue obi, sandals, and katana share the blue color with the headset.

In his URA color palette in Pop'n 11, Roku's skin tone reverts to an original color. His eyes are altered as simple black, while his hair is plain white. Roku's attire is entirely colored dark blue to white, and the parasol, sandals, birthmark, and headset share gray hues. His katana is also colored dark blue.

Hip Rock 3

Roku's robe is much identical as Hip Rock, but consist of additional details. Roku accessorized himself with a purple and white spider-web-inspired kimono; however, his headphones, sword, and sandals changed to purple. His hair does not wax out, but raised crooked, after the wax was replaced.

His 2P palette keeps on shading Roku's skin into brown, while his eyes, katana, and birthmark are colored simply yellow. His entire vestments are colored in light pink hues, and his sandals and hair share a platinum color. The beaded necklace remains it black color.

Hip Rock 4

His robe was red and the sections were dark red. He dons a teal scarf that reaches his thighs, a white leg bracelet, black laces on his weight, and red sandals. His sword was red and his headphones remained the same as Hip Rock. His cerulean hair was cleansing into straight parts.

Roku's 2P color palette tinted his hair and robe white, and his scarf is colored sky blue. His eye color and headphones are identical to his previous appearance. This is temporarily confirmed in 曇天 from Sengoku Retsuden.

Hip Rock 5

Roku was evolved into Sengoku Retsuden as his robe turned yellow and black. He has purple sections, and purple sandals from Hip Rock 3. Part of his sword turned yellow and earrings were back in place to his ears. His hair was partly waxed out and one of the parts of the hair remained crooked.


Roku's appearance in Pop'n Music Lapistoria is very analogous as his debut appearance, albeit that he has red makeup under his eyes, and two, white, vertical highlights on the right side of his hair.


Roku rarely makes a few cameos in category icons, such as the Pop'n 6 category in Pop'n Music 12 Iroha and the NET category in TUNE STREET. Roku also makes animation cameos in Pop'n Xmas's animation once, and Shinobianko's FEVER! animation. Both his category and animation cameos have numbers that are tied.
