While Kikuno does not receive artwork until Ultimax, she appears near the beginning of Mitsuru's story mode, where she assists in the formation of the Shadow Operatives. Mitsuru suspects Kikuno of setting up a minor contained Dark Hour relic incident to ease suspicions and tension between the shadow operatives and the police, forcing her to personally step in and prove the necessity of her involvement.
A member of the Shadow Operatives. She first appears near the beginning of P3 Story Mode, where she informs Mitsuru that a large reading of shadows have appeared in Inaba. Kikuno goes out to recruit Yukari Takeba after learning that Mitsuru Kirijo and the others had been taken captive. Kikuno is the pilot of the helicopter that takes Yukari, Ken Amada, Koromaru, and Labrys into Inaba when the red fog appears.
Kikuno gives them new weapons she feels suit them, as well as their Evokers. When General Teddie sends a missile at them she attempts to dodge, only to notice that he intentionally missed when it turns into fireworks. Fearing a second attack, she warns the group to drop off. Kikuno then gives Labrys data on a Plume of Dusk and Project Puppetmaster after learning someone from Inaba tried to take it. She later evacuates to safety after dropping off the Shadow Operatives, but later returns to aid them in reaching Yasogami High whilst fending off an onslaught of shadows summoned by Hinokagutsuchi.
In the epilogue, she helps Yukari and Mitsuru as they take some time off to go on a shopping spree.
