Ryota Inoue (Japanese: 井上涼太, born 15 February 1988) better known by this nickname Kazunoko (かずのこ), is a Japanese fighting games player known for playing Holy Order Sol in Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R, Yun in Street Fighter 4, Cammy in Street Fighter V, Yamcha in Dragon Ball FighterZ and Raven in Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator. He was the winner of Ultra Street Fighter 4 at Capcom Cup 2015 where he beat Daigo Umehara in the grand finals.[1] He joined Zeveron in July 2015.[2] However Zeveron went out of business the following months and they failed to pay him, resulting in him being a free agent.[3][4]

In 2015 Kazunoko also won CEO and placed second at Canada Cup.[2] He got 9th at EVO 2015.[5] At Capcom Cup 2015 he went through the bracket undefeated, with wins over Gustavo "801 Strider" Romero, Benjamin "Problem X" Simon, Du "NuckleDu" Dang, Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo, Daigo Umehara, and finally a 3-2 victory over Daigo again in the grand finals.[6]

In 2018-19, Kazunoko participated in and dominated[7] the inaugural Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour by winning four of the seven official DBFZ events. He became the Dragon Ball FighterZ world champion in 2019 by winning the first Red Bull Final Summoning[8][9][10]
