Genki Sakura is a 12-year old elementary school boy that is the de facto leader of the group. He has a good heart, and he truly cares for his friends and the monsters. After getting the Monster Rancher video game in the mail, he was transported to the Monster World. His goal is to turn all of the evil monsters into good monsters again. Determined, optimistic, and hopeful, Genki is a real go-getter. Genki also directly fights enemy monsters by donning his roller blades in combat. He is also surprisingly strong for a 12-year old (he has shown to be able to lift objects several times his own weight from time to time in the series), although whether this is due to his own innate strength or because he is in the game world (thereby having been subjected to some game mechanic) is not known. He may have some feelings for Holly.
