THE iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Self Introduction
Ah, sorry, I was paying attention to the music. Hmm, do I have to introduce myself? Umm, I'll do my best to become a rocking idol! Did I do it well?
THE iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls Anime Idol Profile
I’m aiming to be a cool, rockin’ idol!
Riina yearns to be the very definition of “rock”. However, she lacks the music knowledge and experience needed, so she often comes across as a poser. Despite this, Riina’s commitment to becoming her ideal rockin’ idol self is strong.
Riina is a Cool idol who advertises herself as a rock idol. Always wearing headphones and with deep admiration for the rock-scene, she aims to become the very definition of a rock star. However, Riina lacks musical knowledge and experience with the genre, so she often comes across as a bit of a poser. Despite this, Riina’s commitment to becoming her ideal rockin’ idol self is strong. She admires and looks up to Natsuki Kimura, and wants to become someone like her.
Riina doesn’t like portraying a more feminine image at first. She says she'd prefer a purely rock star aesthetic, but she can't help herself and gravitates towards more cutesy looks. In more recent cards, she's started to come closer to the rock star image she loves; even learning to play guitar under Natsuki's tutelage. Initially having Riina admire Natsuki, both of them developed a very strong and mutual bond towards each other over time and are quite often seen together.
Despite her reputation as a poser, Riina often takes her idol work very seriously. When challenged with singing a ballad instead of a typical rock song in the "Idol Challenge for Two: Aim For A Cool Music Video" event, Riina begged Producer to let her keep re-recording until she had achieved the best vocals she could. In the same event, Riina frequently mentions that she aims to "surpass herself". During the Love∞Destiny event in Starlight Stage, Mayu Sakuma described Riina as extremely dependable when working with people who need her help, but with a tendency to act spoiled when paired with those more diligent than her.
Riina lives with her parents and seems to have a very close relationship with her family. Whether she has any siblings is unknown. In a Puchiderella line Riina mentions that at school she is fairly reserved, and she wants to her passionate side as an idol. Riina has confirmed that as a student, she is the type that crams before tests and then forgets the information afterwards.
Riina has been shown to be very insecure about her lack of guitar skills and often worries that she cannot become a real rock idol because of it. Even so, Riina always comes to understand that with the power of her straightforward enthusiasm and determination, she can still be rockin’.
Riina uses formal speech with Producer and other idols who are older than her. Despite this, Riina did not address with Producer with “-san” until her fourth set of cards in the original game. In Riina’s final Puchiderella episode, Riina states that she started calling Producer “-san” as a sign her respect and trust in his ability to produce her.
Riina is an idol within the Cool category. Her basic card is Normal. She has seven Rare card sets with titles [Valentine], [School Uniform Collection], [Rocking Session], [Working Rescue], [Rocking Fever], [Creative I.C.], and [Red Hot Heater] as well as twelve Super Rare card sets with the titles [Rocking Girl], [New Year Rocker], [Eight Beat Rocker], [CD Debut], [Cinderella Dream], [Four Piece], [Party Rock Anthem], [Blue Sunshine Summer], [Asterisk], [All-Night Fever], [Violet Decision], and [Heartbeat Rush].

Trivia and Fan Culture
- In Riina's early "School Uniform Collection" Rare card, she mentions that the yellow and brown headphones she usually wears were gifted to her by "a certain singer", who also autographed them. Riina's yellow and brown headphones appear in 19 of her cards across both Cinderella Girls and Starlight Stage.
- Riina's guitar resembles a Fender Stratocaster, but is not based off an actual existing model.
- It is rumored that Riina has very good hearing, so almost no sound leaks out from her headphones. Riina also mentions having "pretty good" hearing in a Puchiderella line.
- In Riina's "Open-Eyed Dream" SSR, she appears to have one ear pierced, but a closer look at her model reveals that said earring is actually a clip-on.
- In her "After School Rock" card, there are shown the cards for Nothing but You, ∀NSWER, and Mouretsu★Yonaoshi Guilty! at the music store that she, Yuka Nakano, and Miku visited.
- According to their Puchi Costume description, the headphones Riina wears in her Normal+ card are actually earmuffs designed to look like headphones.
- In Starlight Stage, her image stat specialty is either Vocal or Dance, depending on the card.
- One of her card, "Party Rock Anthem", is named after the song of the same name that was sung by LMFAO and Lauren Bennett.
- Riina is sometimes called Darii (or Dariina) by fans. This is Natsuki Kimura's nickname for her. It most likely stems from her name written surname-first, TaDA RIIna. She is also lovingly called " にわか/Niwaka", or "poser"; some people combine this with "cute" to make "にわかわいい/Niwakawaii".
- Riina sometimes uses the uncommon exclamation ウッヒョー！ (Uhyooo~!) when she is very excited. This gets shown in fanworks.
- In the Cinderella Girls 6th Anniversary Survey, which results were posted here, Riina came in first place in the "Idol You'd Like To Go To A Concert With" category.
