Ryuto is the third student to be introduced as an Easter Egg.
He used to have thick, bushy eyebrows, longer hair, a spiky ponytail on the back of his head, and a black bandana. All of these were removed in the October 8th, 2015 Build.
In his former appearance, he had black spiky hair with flame-red tips. He had grey eyes and a red bandana around his head with three strands of hair that fell onto it.
As of the February 15th, 2016 Build, Ryuto has tall, dark red, spiky hair with sideburns and dark red eyes.
Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Ryuto is a Loner. He cannot participate in physical confrontations against murderers, unless they kill Pippi Osu. Because he is a Loner, he will hide his face if Yandere-chan aims her phone at him.
He would rather play the video game Osu! than socialize with the other students.
According to his student profile, he lies to his parents and claims he spends all of his free time studying.
At 8:00 AM, Ryuto walks into Classroom 3-2 and sits at his desk. He starts his morning classes at 8:30 AM, and leaves to go to the computer lab at 1:00 PM.
Ryuto walks back to class again at 1:30 PM and finishes his afternoon classes at 3:30 PM. Afterwards, he heads to his locker and changes from his indoor shoes to his outdoor shoes, then he lingers there until 3:50 PM, then he heads to the computer lab and then stays there until the end of the day.
Main article: Pippi Osu
Ryuto has a crush on Pippi according to his student profile, but he doesn't know that she feels the same way about him.
Since he has a crush on her, if the player kills Pippi in front of him, he will attack the player with much more force than he's usually capable of. However, if she dies, he will not mourn her death.
- As of the September 20th, 2015 Build, Ryuto's bandana now has cloth physics.
- On his computer screen is Tomoe Mami, a character from the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
- His name and design is a parody of Ryuta Ippongi from the rhythm game Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan. Ryuto's character has made a cameo in the game Osu! as well.
- YandereDev thought Ryuto's old hair was "freaking awesome", but changed it because it stuck out like a sore thumb.

- Ryuto used to attend Classroom 1-1 until the November 15th, 2015 Build.
- Before the June 29th, 2016 Build, Ryuto arrived on school grounds 15th in line on the left side, at 7:05 AM.
