|SaGa Frontier character|
Romancing SaGa Re;univerSe
Red Okonogi, also known as Red (レッド Reddo?) is one of the main protagonists of SaGa Frontier. He undergoes a transformation to battle enemies as the superhero Alkaiser (アルカイザー Arukaizaa?). His home region is Shrike.
Red has dreadlocked blue hair that Fuse likened to a cactus. He wears tight dark red clothes with a blue cape.
As Alkaiser, he resembles a typical tokusatsu hero. He keeps his blue cape. His helmet has wings and a horn sticking out of the forehead.
Endowed with superhuman abilities, Red lives among other humans as an apprentice engineer on the regional ship Cygnus. Years ago, the evil syndicate BlackX killed his father and abducted his mother and sister. Left for dead, Red was saved by Alkarl, who came from the holy land of heroes, and granted him amazing powers. Red is on a continuing search for Black X and its followers.
Red starts off driving with his father, Dr. Okonogi, when they get ambushed by Shuzer, one of the Four BlackX Emperors. Red fights a hopeless battle against Shuzer where he is promptly defeated, but is then saved by the mysterious hero, Alkarl, causing Shuzer to retreat. To save Red, Alkarl endows him with superhero powers, turning him into Alkaizer. With his newfound powers, Red goes on a hunt for BlackX and its followers, while following the hero's code of honor.
The quest begins with Red on board the Cygnus ship where he works as an apprentice engineer to Captain Hawk. They stop at places such as Baccarat, Shrike, Manhattan, Kyo, Koorong and Shingrow, where at each stop, Red gets information on BlackX's activities. At one point, the Cygnus even gets hijacked by Nomad's crew, where Red gets help from certain individuals, such as Fuse, Roufas, Asellus, Princess White Rose and BJ&K, to take it back.
Later, Red leaves the Cygnus to travel on his own and find the BlackX Emperors to take them down. Annie leads him to Shuzer's base in Koorong, Fuse guides him through Cambell's building in Manhattan, Doll takes him through the ruins of Shingrow to face Berva, and Rabbit helps him to find Metal Black in Kyo.
Once all the Emperors are taken care of, Red boards the Cygnus where Hawk presents him a BlackX uniform to use to disguise himself and sneak aboard the BlackX ship, the Black Ray, en route to the secret base. After narrowly escaping a self-destruct sequence by a rebuilt Metal Black, Red's party arrives at the base, with Red permanently in his Alkaizer form, where they face off against Dr. Klein, the mastermind of BlackX.

In the end of the Egg Route, he, Alkarl and Finnith destroy The Egg together.

SaGa Compilation Trading Card Game
Red appears as an obtainable card.
- A character with Red's name and appearance is a protagonist of Treasure Hunter G alongside a similar character for Blue. The creators reused the character in this game, although this character is canonically not the same.
- Red encounters Blue on the Cygnus during the hijacking, but Blue refuses to join Red because he dislikes Red's name. This is likely a reference to their roles in Treasure Hunter G.
- Red's Alkaizer form is an obvious shoutout to the Kamen Rider series, even down to the finishing moves (i.e. Shining Kick). In fact, Red's entire tale seems to be inspired by Kamen Rider in various aspects.
- Red can only be recruited if playing as Fuse (Remaster), otherwise he can't be recruited at all.
- Alkaizer is mentioned by a girl in Tanzer when on the Rune Quest.
- Aparts from Fuse in Remastered versions of the game, Red is the only main character to have met all 7 other main characters in his story.
