Ringo (リンゴ) is a vampire hunter, a solar child and the first person to wield the Gun del Sol, a Solar Gun created by Smith. He is married with Mani and is the father of Django and Sabata.

Story[]

Ringo was a vampire hunter that lived in San Miguel and was accompanied by Otenko. When San Miguel was attacked by his rival, the Count, he fought against him and passed away, but managed to fatally wound the Count. Django obtained Ringo's Gun del Sol and his crimson scarf, and went with Otenko after the Count to avenge his father while he was recovering from his wounds.

Initially it was believed Ringo had died, but it was revealed in Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django that he was turned into a vampire by the Count. Ringo wasn't able to control himself because of the darkness, and stole the Gun del Sol from Django in the beginning of the game. Later, Django and Sabata manage to catch up with Ringo inside the Remains in the desert. The vampire turned out to be their father, and he was happy to see them after his defeat. However, due to his mindset being that of a vampire, Ringo bites Django and leaves, but Django survives. When Django went after the Darkness Tree, Ringo appeared and revealed he was able to recover his senses thanks to Django's blood, which contained the blood of a Lunar Child, his mother Mani. Ringo subdued Dainn to give time to Django defeat Durathror.

Ringo is seen again later in the Aqueduct, where he asks Django to find three Tarot cards needed to unlock the seal and go after Dainn, who had managed to enter the location. However, it's revealed Ringo was possessed by Dainn and used Django to enter in the local to free the last Immortal, Dvalinn. Using Ringo, Dainn was able to free Jormungandr, but he is later defeated and Ringo holds Dainn back to Django successfully purify him in the Pile Driver. Both Ringo and Dainn die, and Django recovers the Gun del Sol. Towards the end of the game, when Django was re-binding Jormungandr with the help of the San Miguel townspeople, the player could see Ringo's shadow amidst the bright light.

Ringo had a short appearance in a flashback from Boktai 3: Sabata's Counterattack, and four accessories obtained in the arena are similar to the ones used by Ringo in Boktai 2. When all four are used together, Django's Sol Trance lasts longer.
