Ryo has a long and complicated history. Though as we see it, Ryo is the oldest Tamer and most experienced at what he does. His first appearance in this season was in Episode 28, "Blame it on Ryo", though many can say that they also saw him in the first Digimon Movie which can be explained in his history. Months before he was found he fought Rika in the Digimon Card Battle Tournament and won cause he was the master, then mysteriously vanished after that. This gave Rika the chance to win her title. His mysterious disappearance was due to the Digital World, where he stayed for months and once found he had Cyberdramon, a powerful Ultimate Digimon that tends to lose it every time it see's a good opponent. Ryo is able to control Cyberdramon, for his D-Power is able to become a whip. He makes quite an impression on the others, except for Rika. Though Ryo does his best to put up with Rika's attitude, they eventually start flirting at the end of the season. Ryo is sad with the others to see Cyberdramon leave him when Cyberdramon goes with the other Digimon back to the Digital World.
Ryo was the best card player, until he vanished. He's very helpful and nice to others. He has the same amount of feeling for protecting his friends that anyone else would feel. He comes in big handy when the others are fighting the D-Reaper. He also doesn't let his pride or fame go to his head, though having people like Kenta and Kazu continually praising you would probably make anybody sick of fame. ^_^
Cyberdramon is first seen in Episode 28, Blame it on Ryo. Cyberdramon's rookie form, Monodramon, is first seen in Episode 42, Reunion. Cyberdramon Bio Merged form with Ryo, Justimon, is first seen in Episode 45, The D-Reapers Disguise.
