Uruha Rushia (潤羽るしあ) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, debuting 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.
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.
Rushia is a somewhat naive girl who is soft-spoken yet easily excitable. While she is usually innocent and sweet-sounding, 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. In these characteristics, she is sometimes compared by her fans to former Nijisanji member Otogibara Era.
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 female VTubers instead of her, especially those in hololive, and will sometimes have rapid, self-deprecating attacks on herself as a result which usually prompts sympathy from her audience to calm her down.
She greets her viewers with Konrushi「こんるし」and ends with Otsurushia「おつるしあ」.
Rushia was one of the five hololive VTubers first announced on 13 June 2019 as part of the third generation, but she and Usada Pekora were not open for audition.
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 27 April, Rushia revealed that she was diagnosed with reflux esophagitis and insomnia, thus her streaming activities were put on a temporary hiatus.
On 18 July, Rushia debuted new accessories for her third 2D model, including a new hairstyle, a crown and a black and white oversized jacket.
On 18 October, Rushia announced during a short stream that she would taking a break due to taking care of her cat.

- 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.
- On 2 July 2021, the hololive Twitter account announced that Rushia would appear in a collaborative promotion campaign for the movie Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time, along with Houshou Marine, Sakura Miko, Shirogane Noel, Minato Aqua, A-chan and a secret person as guests. Initially, the project was scheduled to released on 3 July, however, it has since been postponed indefinitely.
- On 13 August 2021, hololive's Twitter account announced that 12 members including Rushia (representing the Rakuten Eagles) would participate in a collaboration with the six professional Japanese baseball teams from the Pacific League, each team represented by two hololive members. The collaboration include promotional merchandise that could be brought, including hats, posters, keychains, among others, also a promotional match between ORIX Buffaloes vs SoftBank HAWKS scheduled for 3 October 2021 at the Kyocera Dome Osaka stadium called "hololive day."
- 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."
- Her familial kanji is as follows:
- "Uruou"「潤」 means wet or moist, but is name-shortened to simply "Uru" when read in her kanji.
- "Ha"「羽」means feather.
- Her personal name is a katakana rendering of the foreign name, Lucia.
- Her male persona's name also follows the same format, as Rushifer is Lucifer.
- Rushia popularized the now common community phrase "boin boin", the onomatopoeia large breasts make in Japanese. As Rushia is not this, fans commonly call her "pettan" (flat chested) or "cutting board". Rushia has even gone on record to tell the team of Disgaea 6 (or perhaps threaten them) into making her a sexy succubus for the game. A common meme is comments being cut short whenever they talk about her being flat chested, implying that she killed them for it.
- "Boin" is often localized as "Boing" in general translation work. This extends to the english hololive community as it is often used to describe other busty members as well.
- 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.
- During her debut, candidates for her fan mark aside from 🦋 (butterfly) included 💀 (skull), 👻 (ghost), 🍨 (ice cream), and 🧟♀️ (female zombie).
- 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.
- She used to say "nanodesu" when speaking, but rarely does now.
- She's the third shortest with 143cm after Gawr Gura and Himemori Luna.
