Uruha Rushia (潤羽るしあ) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its third generation of VTubers under the name of "hololive Fantasy" (ホロライブファンタジー) alongside Usada Pekora, Shiranui Flare, Shirogane Noel, and Houshou Marine.
Rushia is a soft-spoken, somewhat naive girl who panics easily. While she is usually innocent and kind, she can occasionally become enraged and scream in an uncharacteristically beast-like manner before regaining her composure (for example, while playing Dark Souls or Mario Kart). She is infamous for her extremely poor anger management skills; in addition to screaming, she will often violently smash her fist against her desk. This behavior was previously regarded as breaking character, but it is now mostly considered part of her character.
Rushia is sensitive about her breast size, and both fans and other hololive members often tease her for it, to the point that she will flinch whenever she hears someone say "flat" (ぺったん)", "wall" (壁) or "cutting board" (まな板). She also has a humorous "yandere" persona that occasionally surfaces when people start talking too much about other VTubers instead of her.
She greets her viewers with Konrushi 「こんるし」 and ends with Otsurushia 「おつるしあ」.
Hel-rushi! This is Uruha Rushia!
A necromancer from the Demonic-Realm Academy who is not good at communicating with people. She does not want to be alone, however, which is why she talks to the spirits and the damned.
A third generation of hololive VTubers were first announced on 13 June 2019, her being one of the other four. She and Usada Pekora were not open for auditioning, unlike the other three.
On 7 July during the hololive karaoke session, her name and Twitter account was officially announced alongside Usada Pekora. Her Twitter account was opened on 24 June 2019 while her YouTube channel was opened on 3 July. She debuted on YouTube with her introductory stream on 18 July.
On 27 November, she announced on Twitter that she would get a 3D model.
On 30 November, she debuted her 3D model during a stream. She was the second of her generation to get her 3D model after Shirogane Noel.
On 2 January, she announced on Twitter that she would get her second 2D costume, this costume was revealed to be a kimono in celebration of the new year during a stream the same day. In this costume Rushia wears a butterfly ribbon, that can be taken off.
On 15 June hololive's Twitter account announced that Rushia would get a new 2D costume. The costume was revealed the next day on 16 June, during a stream, in this costume, she wears a black dress, long white hair with pink lights and purple shadows, her old hair style is still usable and has been recolored to match the new costume.
On 25 December, she reached 800,000 YouTube subscribers during a singing endurance stream.
On 22 January, during her birthday celebration 3D stream, Rushia debuted a new hairstyle, similar in appearance to her original hair cut, she uses small pigtails and cat ears. She also debuted her first original song: Iris「アイリス」.
On 26 January, she reached 900,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 3 March, Rushia reached 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers, becoming the 11th member of hololive to reach this milestone and the 8th member of hololive JP to do so. She is also the 3rd member of hololive Fantasy (alongside Pekora and Marine) to achieve this milestone.

- On 25 Febuary 2021, Rushia was made playable in Disgaea 6 in Japan as a Boin Boin Succubus named Ruusha along with Fubuki, Flare, Watame and Polka.
- Her fanbase is called 「ふぁんでっど」(Fandeddo), which is an attempt to combine the words「Fan（ファン）」with the word「Undead（アンデッド）」. In English, her fanbase is officially called "Fandead".
- She used to say "nanodesu" when speaking, but rarely does now.
- Rushia popularized the now common community phrase "boing boing", meaning a woman with large breasts. As Rushia is not this, fans commonly call her "pettan", meaning "flat chested" or "cutting board". A common meme is comments being cut short whenever they talk about her being flat chested, implying that she killed them for it.
- Her tendency to smash her desk when raging led to the meme "desk-kun -10hp", now used frequently for all VTubers with similar tendencies. Tokoyami Towa in particular helped popularize this further.
- Rushia's acting and vocal range has been noted to be extremely wide. Many are painfully aware of the death metal potential she is capable of, but her vocal range can also extent to sensual/sexy to even grandmotherly, all on top of her already soft, cutesy voice she always uses. This allows her to cleanly express what character is suppose to be talking in mute games she reads aloud.
- Her name, Rushia, is a katakana rendering of the name, Lucia.
- Her male persona's name also follows the same format, as Rushifer is Lucifer.
- She's the third shortest with 143cm after Gawr Gura and Himemori Luna.
