Masahiro Ikariko is a Japanese composer and sound designer best known for his numerous works with Konami. He originally joined them in 1987 as a part-time job, but later started working for the company full-time, and was assigned to their MSX2 and computer games. His first job at Konami was for the MSX game Hi no Tori. He is also known for soundtracks like Snatcher and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. In the 90s, he started working on Konami's console games, including works like Pop'n Twinbee (SNES) and Sunset Riders (GEN). Around the 2000s, he started to receive credits in the company's arcade games, but was usually credited for sound design as opposed to music. He is known for his work as the sound designer for the Silent Scope series.

It appears he left Konami around 2012.
