Reiji Arisu, along with his partner Xiaomu, are the main protagonists of Namco X Capcom, and are members of the Shinra Organization, an organization dedicated to dealing with supernatural monsters and phenomena. He is serious and collected, but also has a strong-willed, passionate sense of justice. They also appear as a playable characters in the games Project X Zone, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier and its sequel Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED.
When he was young, his father, Shougo Arisu, managed to protect him while fighting Saya but gained a scar on his forehead afterward. Xiaomu trained him and 10 years later, he is now a proficient fighter within Shinra, a special ops unit within the Japanese government.
During the events of Namco X Capcom, he and Xiaomu were sent out on a mission to the "closed city" of Shibuya, but soon the pair were thrust into a conflict that spread throughout space, time, and different worlds. It was then that he encountered Saya, and whenever she appears, his old wound starts to ache. Enemies once defeated were now resurrected, past events were repeating, and at the center of it all, Saya and her organization, Ouma, were behind it all. As they fought alongside allies from different times and worlds, they eventually find Saya in a giant weapon above Earth. After delivering the final blow, everyone returns to their worlds and peace returned...or so they thought.
Saya reappears and the worlds suddenly merged together. Xiaomu decides to finally tell what happened to his father, but Reiji somehow knew the truth at the beginning. Just when he was about to use a forbidden art used by his father, every one of their friends and allies reappears one by one and together they fought their way towards 99, the god Ouma was trying to resurrect and rule the worlds. When they arrive, a hard battle was fought and at the end, Reiji and Xiaomu deliver the final blow. Reiji then took out his Gold magnum and delivered the final shot to Saya's head.
Three months after the battle, everyone started receiving invitations for a celebration party at Demitri's castle. Everyone was having a good time (and the wild antics were starting), but Reiji and Xiaomu were up on the balcony, discussing their futures and sharing a kiss.
