Red Action is a minor character in the OK K.O.! series, who came from the future year of 301X. She can almost always be seen hanging around the plaza with her two friends, Drupe and Gregg. She's come back to the year 201X, the present in the series, due to her breaking the Prysma Crystal in the future, an important crystal her former group, Hue Troop, uses to prevent disasters. She has since made amends with her old troop, but decided to stay in this year nonetheless.
She becomes an instructor with Enid at the Fitness Dojo during the time skips of "Thank You for Watching the Show".
Red Action appears to be slightly taller than Drupe. She has light, tan skin, green eyes and wildly fashioned, rose-colored long hair. She typically wears a set of red armor that is cut off at the bottom, exposing her midriff, a light blue collar, red shoulder pads, bracers with light blue motifs, dark gray capris cut just below the knee, a light blue belt with a scarlet buckle, red knee pads, and a red high-heeled shoe. Her right hand has a red glove on it. Her right leg, below the knee, is artificial.
Red Action can be very temperamental and she struggles with accepting help and praise, though she seems to appreciate it.
She loiters at the plaza with a gang of ne’er do wells. She used to have a job at the video store before it closed. She's very withholding of likes on social media. As shown in "Back in Red Action", she admired Enid and her unique personality, while she feels she's just one in a group of similar people.
In the future, Red Action was part of the Hue Troop, but she accidentally broke the Prysma Crystal, an important item for them. She ran away to 201X, fleeing from her problems. She is then confronted by her gang and accidentally brings them back to where the Prysma Crystal was first found, this way, fixing the problem. She decides to stay in 201X, since she thinks people are nice at this time.
Red Action has frivolous qualities and tendencies. She prefers to hang out with her friends and do fun activities rather than do heroic things. Even when she is requested by Yellow Technique to get involved in a battle to save the universe, Red Action seemed as if she would rather have fun with K.O. and Enid than fight in the battle. She only seems willing to take heroic action in extreme situations.
She shows a more responsible side by becoming an instructor at the Fitness dojo and teaching kids that resemble a young Hue Troop.
