Nakoruru is one of the most recognized characters from the series and "mascot" (alongside Haohmaru). Since her introduction in Samurai Shodown, she appears in every title of the series -but is not playable in Samurai Shodown: Warriors Rage. Her alter ego, Rera, premiered in the PC and Dreamcast video game Nakoruru: Ano Hito kara no Okurimono and was later incorporated into the fighting games in Samurai Shodown V.

Nakoruru's role in the game is of a defender of Mother Nature as a priestess of the Ainu religion. This idea came from a Japanese perception of the indigenous Ainu people, who live around Hokkaido, Japan. In this case, Ainu are depicted in a way analogous to the Native Americans in the United States are in other media, in that they revere nature and peacefully coexist with it. Keeping in key with her persona, Nakoruru was also used as a mascot for SNK's environmental awareness campaigns in 1994. She became the Kamui warrior of Kamui Kotan after the death of her father and continues to fulfill this role throughout the series (even assuming a human form after her death). In Samurai Shodown: Warriors Rage, she becomes "the holy spirit who wanders through time" in a form that resembles a Koro-pok-guru. Unable to assume her original form, she asks the player to awaken the Maiden of Light, Rimururu, who has been sealed by Oboro.
