Ryo Akiyama is a major recurring character in the Digimon Franchise, originally depicted as a "Chosen Child" (DigiDestined in dub) in the Wonderswan series of games. After the rest of the Chosen Children were defeated and kidnapped by an unbelievably powerful and mysterious enemy, Taichi's Agumon called countless children seeking help, with Ryo being the only one to come.
At some unspecified time later, Ryo became good friends with Ken Ichijouji and the two watched Omegamon defeat and kill Diablomon afterwards, he and Ken were visited by V-Mon (yes, Daisukes V-Mon) who took the two boys into the Digital World to defeat Diablomon. V-Mon defeated the Diablomon with ease but it all turned out to be a ruse by Millenniumon to draw Ryo back into the Digital World.
After traveling the Digital World and collecting the "Digimentals" Ken and Ryo were able to enter Moon=Millenniummons "Soul World" and finally confronted the Dark God himself. The two kids were able to defeat the Wicked God but at a grave cost, with his last breath Moon=Millenniummon shot several Dark Seeds that were meant to hit Ryo but hit Ken instead, causing him to grow deathly ill. They two boys returned the Real World. One year later, Ken traveled to the Digital World after receiving a mysterious E-Mail and went to the Dark Ocean and bathed his Digivice in its waters, causing Ken to become the Digimon Kaiser.
Eventually, after two more adventures Ryo was given a choice on what Universe to travel too, Ryo being very stressed and angry at being used as a tool by the Digimon Sovereigns decided to travel to a Universe he's never been too before the Tamers verse.

Stamina: Very High
Range: Ryo and his various Digimon are typically in the extended melee range, though in Anode/Cathode tamer his Digimon could strike across entire battlefields
Standard Equipment: Digivice, D-3 Digivice, D-POWER and various Digi-Modify cards.
Intelligence: Ryo is very smart, he's very knowledgeable about the rules and laws of the Digital World and knows a lot about the individual quirks of several Digimon. Cyberdramon is, however, a bloodlusted beast since he's the fusion of Monodramon and ZeedMillenniummon.
Weaknesses: Ryo is still a human and would make an easy target. Cyberdramon is a complete berserker. Like other characters from Tamers, Ryo needs to be nearby his Digimon for it to fight a full force. These weaknesses are no longer valid when Cyberdramon and Ryo merge into Justimon.
