The R/B Kourin (ルーブコウリン Rūbu Kōrin lit. "R/B Light Ring") is Ultraman Ruebe's Wind and Fire Wheels-like personal weapon, accessed by placing his hand on his Color Timer. It is also used by Ultraman Groob, where it's stored in the ring on his back.

History

Ultraman R/B

When Katsumi Minato and Isami Minato unite their brotherly bonds, they are able to unlock the Kiwami Crystal, allowing them to transform into Ultraman Ruebe. From the golden ring on his chest, Ruebe summons the R/B Kourin to battle.

The R/B Kourin has several different attack modes, each of them are differentiated by the color of the Kiwami kanji symbol on the Crystal. While yellow by default, it becomes red in Rosso Mode (ロッソモード Rosso Mōdo) and blue in Blu Mode (ブルモード Buru Mōdo).

Standard
  • Deflection: Using the R/B Kourin, Ruebe can deflect incoming projectile attacks.
  • Kourin Protection (コウリンプロテクション Kōrin Purotekushon): The R/B Kourin is capable of absorbing an enemy's energy beam and redirecting it back towards them.
  • Barrier: The R/B Kourin is able to project an energy barrier in the shape of a spinning buzzsaw.
  • Energy Slash: In Ultraman Fusion Fight!, Ruebe can fire a crescent-shaped energy slash from the R/B Kourin.
Rosso Mode
  • Buzzsaw Slash: While the Ruebe Kourin is in Rosso Mode, the blades on it can rotate and act as a buzzsaw cutter.
  • Vortex Buster (ボルテックバスター Borutekku Basutā): Exclusive to the DX toy. It is performed by inserting any R/B Crystal on the weapon instead of the Kiwami Crystal.
    • Ruebe Vortex Buster (ルーブボルテックバスター Rūbu Borutekku Basutā): Using the power of the Kiwami Crystal, Ruebe fires a destructive, rainbow-colored, tornado-like beam from the radius of the R/B Kourin.
      • Shin Vortex Buster (シン・ボルテックバスター Shin Borutekku Basutā lit. True Vortex Buster): A destruction ray 10 times more powerful than the the Ruebe Vortex Buster, fired using the Makoto Crystal (in its closed form) in place of the Kiwami Crystal. It was powerful enough to destroy Reugosite.
      • Groob Vortex Buster (グルーブボルテックバスター Gurūbu Borutekku Basutā): The upgraded version of the Ruebe Vortex Buster using the Makoto Crystal. It is fired as a rainbow colored beam.
Blu Mode
  • Dashing Slash: While the Ruebe Kourin is in Blu Mode, Ruebe can accelerate to high speeds and land multiple slashes on the opponent.
  • Kourin Shot (コウリンショット Kōrin Shotto): Exclusive to the DX toy. It is performed by inserting any R/B Crystal on the weapon instead of the Kiwami Crystal.
    • Ruebe Kourin Shot (ルーブコウリンショット Rūbu Kōrin Shotto): Using the power of the Kiwami Crystal, a buzzsaw slashing projectile is shot from the R/B Kourin.
      • Shin Kourin Shot (シン・コウリンショット Shin Kōrin Shotto lit. True Kourin Shot): An even more powerful version of the Ruebe Kourin Shot, using the Makoto Crystal (in its closed form) in place of the Kiwami Crystal. Presumably, like the Shin Vortex Buster, it is 10 times more powerful than the Ruebe Kourin Shot.
      • Groob Kourin Shot (グルーブコウリンショット Gurūbu Kōrin Shotto): An upgraded version of Ruebe's Ruebe Kourin Shot, using the Makoto Crystal in place of the Kiwami Crystal. Groob fires three cutting halos from the R/B Kourin.
