'Hanasaki Ran' (花咲ラン Hanasaki Ran) is one of the new protagonists introduced in Danball Senki W.
Ran has slightly pink skin, big neon yellow eyes and long cherry colored hair tied up in ponytail with side bangs. She usually wears pink collar shirt with green buttons, green shorts held by cherry and black suspenders, handband on her right wrist colored the same as suspenders and red and black boots. Sometimes she also holds a pink and white bag.
In WARS scetches she is seen wearing tight black top with pink stripes with white coat over it and green shorts with black stripe at each side. She also has slightly different hairstyle.
Ran is a strong and brave karate fighter which is following her grandfather's style and principle. As an LBX player, she tends to get hyperactive towards LBX battles which is reflected through her fighting skills.
PlotRan first debuted after winning a karate championship, and receiving the LBX Minerva as a prize planted by Yamano Junichiro. She and her friend gets ambushed by Achilles Deed and an army of Detector LBXs. Then she meets Hiro and starting to like him. Ran, with the help of Ban and Hiro, defeated them together. After the battle, Cobra explained that she, like Hiro, has been chosen to fight the Detectors. Upon arriving to N City, they met Jessica Kaios, Jin Kaidou and Yuuya Haibara who aided their future battles at NICS headquarters.
Ran, Hiro and Ban investigate N city and Shang Pao using the new Denpa, electromagnetic waves, meter to search Detectors computer. She lost to Ami Kawamura in Shang Pao when trying to reach the main computer.
In the Angra Texas, Ran was trained by Yuuya but she didn't listen to his advice to think first before acting. She said that he's troublesome and she likes her way of fighting.
- She loves to end her sentence with "osu!" a word karate fighter always use after fights.
- Her way of fighting is head on meaning by power and does not take it slowly saying "that it's too troublesome"
