"Hurricane" Ryu Hariken (破李拳竜,   Hariken Ryū), real name Hidemi Miyata (宮田英実,   Miyata Hidemi), is a Japanese actor, director, illustrator and serialized comic author. Hariken worked as a suit actor on Toho's Godzilla films during the Heisei series, portraying kaiju such as King Ghidorah and Godzilla Junior.
