Hibari (雲雀) is a playable character in the PlayStation sub-series of Senran Kagura.
Being young and awkward, Hibari's still struggling to master that power, along with her other shinobi skills, in order to consider herself worthy of her peers. When she first started school, her fellow first-year Yagyū took her under her wing, and between Yagyū's tutelage and her own determination, she's started to catch up.
Despite her struggles, and her occasional mistakes, Hibari has made many friends – more than she thinks she deserves – thanks to her cheerful and genuine personality.
Hibari is an upbeat girl with pink hair adorned with three black ribbons that tie it into two pigtails. Her outfit is reminiscent of a student in gym class. She has a light pink track jacket with the Hanzō emblem on the left chest area, dark blue biker shorts, black and white socks, and red and white sneakers. Her eyes are peculiarly dotted with two pink, cross-shaped pupils.
Hibari is exceedingly innocent, trusting and cheerful. Despite often depending on others, especially Yagyū, Hibari dislikes having to completely rely on others, as it makes her feel like she is holding everyone else behind. Although she often feels like she just isn't cut out for it, she always tries her best to keep up with the others and show just how much she can contribute to the team.
In Shinvoi Versus, Hibari's first mission involves battling her classmates as they're under Hibari's accidental Kagan spell. She fights Asuka and Yagyu in a tag team, followed by Ikaruga and Katsuragi in a tag team. Afterwards, she explains to the other girls the abilities of her eyes. She is later with the other girlsas the Gessen students introduce themselves. Finally, she is present while Kiriya goes over the principles of the Shinobi Battle Royale
In Chapter 2, she has to fight Minori in the Hanzō school, battling through waves of jobbers before facing the young Gessen student in a classroom. After the battle, Hibari is exhausted, while Minori (while possibly scratched up), appears unharmed, ready for Round 2. However, Minori gets bored and leaves, leaving Hibari to ponder over Minori's motif.
Though she has no mission in Chapter 3, she appears in the last mission to help Asuka along with the other Hanzō shinobi who had recently finished recuperating. She "assists" Katsuragi in teasing Murakumo, to Yagyu's chagrin, and eventually, Murakumo runs away.
In Chapter 4, she reunites with Haruka and traines with her, while everyone else trains with their respective Hebijo rivals. Hibari expresses a concern to Haruka, about how she feels like she's holding everyone else back with her weakness, a concern she had back in Burst. Haruka explains that her charm is one of her most finest features, which is one reason why Haruka wanted to make her into a doll. After their spar, Hibari learns her Absolute Secret Ninja Art: Crazy Rabbit.
In Chapter 5, she has a heated conversation with Minori on why she fights. She realizes that one of the main reason why Minori loves to play so much is because she wishes that everyone would stop fighting and get along. After the fight, she meets up with Asuka and the others, before joining all of the other girls from the other schools for a hot spring "celebration" for saving their school.
She is shown alongside the other Hanzo girls attending a barbeque. During this their invitation to the Peach Beach Splash tournament suddenly strikes the grill Asuka was using.
In-game, Hibari's fighting style is composed mostly of an odd hand-to-hand melee attacks in a style which she invented that she calls the "Odd Pummeling Martial Arts", a take on taijutsu that resembles a child in a scuffle. Its also often uses static electricity to shock and stun her opponents. As she's not very good at fighting, this is often reflected in her combat ability in-game. However she excels at intelligence gathering. Her Ninpo utilises the power of rabbits.
