Ruri Gokou, also known by her alias Kuroneko, is a primary character featured in the Oreimo light novel series, authored by Tsukasa Fushimi with illustrations by Hiro Kanzaki, and animated by J.C. Staff.

Kuroneko emerged as Oreimo's pre-eminent representative, and was part of the group of females that dominated the Nova / Stella era of the International Saimoe League. She enjoyed the most success in the contest from 2011 to 2013, winning a necklace in each year, and appeared in the semi-finals twice before winning the championship in 2013.

Ruri's biggest ISML rival is Kanade Tachibana, a fellow Kana Hanazawa-voiced character. The pair have met each other five times in the postseason: two division finals, two knockout matches, and a third place match. The Angel has won all of them except one --- the 2013 final, which saw Kuroneko win the Heavenly Tiara and deny Kanade her second straight championship in the process.

In 2channel's J-Saimoe contest, Ruri managed to reach the quarter-finals twice in 2011 and 2013, however, Madoka Magica's dominance led to her eliminations in both editions.
