Other Appearances

This page details Erika Furudo's other appearances and involvement in Umineko-related media outside the original story.

Golden Fantasia[]

Erika is a playable character, specializing in scythe attacks. Her special ability is "Force Counter", where every first hit is registered as a counter-attack. Has story modes with Ange, Dlanor and Bernkastel.

Forgery of the Purple Logic[]

Erika is the main character of this spin-off manga as part of a game created by Beatrice. This game uses purple statements much like Bernkastel's game.

Rejoice! Rose Guns Days Stage Play Season 2[]

The Rose Guns Days cast celebrates the success of the Season 1 stage play adaptation and practice for Season 2, only to find that someone is trying to sabotage their play. Erika arrives after Richard Maiougi orders her on his phone, but the rest of the cast is confused as to how she got in since she shouldn't have an entry pass. Erika explains she did have a pass, but Philip Butler (whom Erika treats to be the exact same as Battler) is the only one who seems to care about debating her on it. Butler and Erika have a red and blue truth debate, with Butler proving that Erika used a one-time pass six months ago and has been living in the training hall ever since. With the cast confused as to why she even did all that, Erika asserts that incidents will happen so long as a detective is around, and that the sabotage incident occurring now is worth it.

Erika begins her investigation and finds that the culprit is indeed a Rose Guns Days character. She takes alibis concerning Rose Haibara's costumes being torn up and finds that everyone does have alibis. The possibility of the culprit having accomplices is raised, and so Erika starts investigating alibis that can be corroborated with so few people.

At Rose's heartfelt belief that none of her friends would be willing to sabotage the Rose Guns Days stage play, Erika determines who the culprit is. She deduces that the culprit at first wanted to completely destroy the play and stop Season 3 from being adapted, however his accomplices needed Season 2 to happen. The sabotage committed by the culprit, like feeding Wang Yuanhong laxatives, was mild enough so that they could still perform Season 2 but have it be a failure.

Erika finally declares that Butler is the culprit, with Oliver Oribe and James Tomitake his accomplices. Her reasoning is that because of James' prior role in Higurashi When They Cry, he was always made fun of for it and so hates scenes where he dies; Oliver also didn't want to die, and believed Butler's promise that by making Season 2 fail, he could live in a catbox where he was a Wandering Dog with Zel forever. Erika puts Butler on the spot and forces him to explain himself, and reveals that Gabriel Kaburaya is in the audience watching them all. Butler has a mental breakdown at Gabriel's presence, and Erika tells the remaining cast to continue practicing now that the play won't be sabotaged anymore.

Last note of the Golden Witch[]

Erika is summoned by Ange as a sort of alternate personality and theorized to be a possible identity for Piece. However, this theory is denied.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Mei[]

Erika was added as a playable unit in the collaboration event The Witch's Bloodstained Birthday Banquet.

The Witch's Bloodstained Birthday Banquet

Erika travels to Rokkenjima by ferry in 1983 to celebrate Beatrice’s birthday. On the boat, Nao Houtani watches her trip a kid who’s running around and then confronts her about it. Erika claims she didn’t really trip the kid since Nao doesn’t have conclusive evidence and confuses her with talk about catboxes. Erika finally admits she purposely tripped the kid and gloats since Nao can’t actually prove it. Nao goes off in a huff, and Dlanor arrives to chastise Erika in private.

Erika meets Mion and Shion Sonozaki when their group transfers to another boat, with Nao dismayed that she’s also been invited to Rokkenjima as a guest. Erika establishes that she’s familiar with the Ushiromiyas after falling off of a boat one time and washing ashore. Erika, Mion, and Shion bond over their love of the Detective Wanyan anime. Erika later tells them all about a witch that haunts Rokkenjima and doesn’t like disbelievers. After docking on the island, Erika greets Jessica and is shown to have brought only a small backpack with her. At the guesthouse, Erika is shown into her own private guestroom while Nao, Mion, and Shion stay in the one next door.

At lunch, the group talks more about mysteries, and Erika learns about Oyashiro-sama’s curse from the Hinamizawa group. They also talk about the legend of the Ushiromiya gold and the possibility of whether or not the witch Beatrice really exists on the island.

After dinner, Erika hears that Mion broke the window lock in their room, and Shannon goes up to fix it. Erika then plays with the group in some board games. When Nao’s group returns to their room, they find a bloody magic circle painted on Nao’s bed. Nao is soon summoned to the Meta-World and meets Beatrice, then engages her in a red and blue truth debate.

The next day, Erika relaxes in the rose garden by reading a book. Nao looks for a place to do some embroidery and ends up sitting next to Erika. Nao decides to talk about the debate and accuses Erika of working with Shannon and placing the magic circle. Erika’s alibi is that she was hanging out with everyone the entire time last night before going to her room, but Nao claims she could’ve done it before dinner and climbed in through the window to do it, knowing about the broken window lock. Erika speaks in red that she and Shannon are not conspiring in any way. Nao considers asking Shannon about it, but Erika says she’s off work the next few days.

Mion and Shion join them, and Erika says she actually forgot to lock the door to her own room. Later, Nao speaks to Erika again and thinks she’s broken apart her alibi, but Erika uses more red and says Shannon was not involved in the prank at any point.

Erika joins Beatrice and Dlanor in the Meta-World and has a red exchange with them, with Erika revealing she did place the magic circle on Nao’s bed and climbed in through the window. When asked why Shannon saw the circle and thought nothing strange about it, Erika says there exist people on the island who wouldn't think it’s strange in red.

Mion, Shion, and Nao return to their room after their last photo session, and they hear Erika screaming in fear when she finds a magic circle in her own room. Nao accuses Erika of placing it however, and she’s unable to respond. Dinner becomes awkward since Erika keeps insisting she never placed that circle. Nao is soon brought to the Meta-World to join Erika, Beatrice, and Dlanor again. Nao understands this is a three-way battle: Nao believes Erika placed the second magic circle, Erika claims Shion did it, and Beatrice claims a witch did it. An exchange of red occurs, and Nao learns that Erika did indeed place the first magic circle.

Erika wants to prove that Shion placed the second magic circle and returns to the gameboard. She reveals that she put fluorescent paint on the doorknob that sticks to people’s hands when they touch it and tries to shine a blacklight on Shion’s hand, but there’s nothing there. Erika is unable to accept this and makes a blue that Shion used a glove.

On Nao’s turn, she announces her plan to make herself and Beatrice the winners since there can be two winners, and Nao herself has experienced supernatural phenomena. Dlanor gets permission to see her memories and confirms that gods and monsters really do exist in red. Nao uses blue to state that a witch could place the second magic circle, and when Erika is unable to respond, Dlanor declares that Nao and Beatrice are the winners. The group realizes that the magic circles are copied from Detective Wanyan; Shannon watched the show too and didn’t think they were weird when she saw them on the bedsheets. Erika accepts defeat and returns to the gameboard.

Nao wakes up the next morning to find Mion, Shion, and Erika lying in their beds with bloodstains, but it turns out to be another Detective Wanyan-inspired prank. Erika, Mion, and Shion talk more about Detective Wanyan, and it’s revealed that Mion and Shion immediately recognized the circle when they saw it in Nao’s room, and saw it as a challenge from Erika. Shion snuck into Erika’s room to place her own circle but got paint on her hands, and then switched places with Mion when they went to shower after their photo session.

While leaving the island, the Hinamizawa group opens a farewell present given to them, which magically changes them all to wear bunny-girl outfits. Erika notes that Nao’s wearing a Chiester outfit.

"Witch of Truth" Erika Furudo

Erika gets punished by Bernkastel after losing the game and decides to go to Hinamizawa so she can get revenge on Nao. She asks Dlanor to come along but she refuses.

In Hinamizawa, Erika starts looking around for Nao and comes across the club at Furude Shrine. She finds that Nao isn’t there (as she's napping at home), but she sees Rika Furude and believes she’s actually Bern in disguise. Erika immediately prostrates herself before Rika and starts calling her Master, much to everyone’s confusion. They think she’s actually a contractor hired to clean the shrine, and Erika starts doing so, believing it will appease Bern.

Throughout the cleaning process, the club tries to tell Erika that Rika and her master are not the same, and comment on how cruel Bern sounds. After cleaning, Erika continues her search for Nao and runs into Rika again. She asks her about Nao, but Rika starts giggling. Erika says Furude Rika’s real name out loud and begins to realize what’s going on, but this Rika is revealed to actually be Bern in disguise and starts insulting her.

"Inquisitor of Heresy" Dlanor

After a discussion with Nao and Beatrice, Dlanor gives Erika some leftover cookies. Erika looks forward to a rematch with Nao.

"Chiester Sister Soldier" Rika Furude

In another world, the club, Battler, and Jessica are in Hinamizawa fighting tsukuyami and working to get the hot springs district up and running again. Erika suddenly appears, having used a different route since she didn't want to bother Bern, and calls out to Nao. Nao doesn’t recognize her, but Erika doesn’t care since she’s basically the same person. The club moves to protect Nao as Erika declares she'll get her revenge.

Erika then notices Rika wearing a Chiester Sister outfit and prostrates herself again, still thinking she’s Bern in disguise. Rika insists she’s not her master, but Erika isn’t listening. When Battler and Keiichi Maebara show up, they’re asked if they know an Erika Furudo, but this Battler doesn’t know her. When Erika refuses to go away, Battler and Keiichi tell Rika to pretend to be her master, and so she orders Erika to help them clean and work on the hot springs. Mamoru Akasaka appears later to check on things, and Erika thinks he’s an enemy for getting close to Rika and threatens to attack him. The group wonders how they can get rid of Erika for good.
