|This article is about a/an villain in Kamen Rider Kuuga.|
Ra-Baruba-De (ラ·バルバ·デ Ra Baruba De, 2-47) was the first Ra to appear, assuming the guise of a Rose-Tattooed Woman, she was labeled "Unidentified Life Form B1" and served as the judge for Zu and Me group Gurongi, as well as bringing Go into the game before making visits to Nagano. Her main job was to authorize any member of Gurongi Tribe to start the Gegeru. Later, she was accompanied by Ra-Dorudo-Gu during the Go game. Her only known power was emitting rose petals that could induce hypnosis and dizziness.
Her manga incarnation could control humans using plant spores that embed in the brain and she takes a more central role as the main villain during the manga, as Daguva is seemingly absent.
Nothing much known about her in Riku's era. During the modern era, she acts judge and strategist for Gurongi tribe. She is one of the few seen speaking to Daguva onscreen without being killed by him, implying she is his lieutenant. The orders she gives usually comes from him, despite his absence, making her the de facto main antagonist as Daguva is busy hunting for the rest of his power in the early arcs of the show. Though glimpses of her true form were seen, she never assumed it before any human and was believed by Ichijo to be #0. However, when she realizes how far humans have changed after being wounded by Ichijo, Baruba hints the Kuuga/Daguva relation before she hospitalized the detective for being able to actually hurt her and starts to warn the other Gurongi to no longer underestimate the humans. During Daguva's attack, she is encountered by Ichijo as she reveals that humans will soon be "like the Gurongi" before running off, with Ichijo forced to use 8 Nerve-Breaking Bullets to take her down, with her lifeless body falling into the sea, unable to be found.
