Powers/Abilities: B-Ko is a genius, and as good an inventor as her father. As well as using giant robots piloted by humans within them (mecha), she also has a variety of suits of powered armour. Her main battle armour enhances the wearer's reflexes and speed to make them superhumanly fast, can fly through the use of a back mounted jetpack, protects the wearer from injury, and is armed with missiles and other weapons.
History: Biko Daitokuji, a.k.a. as B-Ko, was the daughter of one of the most powerful businessmen in Graviton City, a genius inventor. Through her entire life, anytime she wanted something, she got it...until she decided that she wanted a new girl in school to be her best friend, since the new girl was cute and would be a great fashion accessory. The problem was that her target, C-Ko, already had a best friend, a girl called A-Ko. Complicating the situation even more, was the fact that A-Ko had superhuman powers. B-Ko used her father's resources and her own genius level intellect to even the odds, unleashing mecha on her rival, and when they failed, she used a series of increasingly tough powered armour costumes to take A-Ko on herself. Their battles would cause terrible property damage, and B-Ko lost every one, but her determination to win always kept her coming back for another try.
Bizarrely B-Ko's affection for C-Ko was genuine, and when aliens attempted to kidnap the girl, B-Ko set aside her rivalry long enough to team up with A-Ko and rescue their friend.
Comments: Created by Katsuhiko Nishijima and Yuji Moriyama. Her voice in the anime was provided by Emi Shinohara.
