Jump to: navigation, search

The characters of Kamen Rider Decade exist amongst various iterations of reality within the series referred to as an A.R. World (Another Rider's/Alternate Reality World). The Nine Worlds (9つの世界 Kokonotsu no Sekai?) are the A.R. Worlds that are based on the previous entries of the Kamen Rider Series that have aired during the Heisei period of Japanese history. Each differs in some way from the series on which it was based.

World of Kuuga[edit]

The World of Kuuga (クウガの世界 Kūga no Sekai?) is the version of reality where Kamen Rider Kuuga takes place. It was the world where Yusuke Onodera originated from before he joined Tsukasa in his journey. The backdrop used to arrive in this world shows a city with police cars and Mount Hitoki (灯溶山 Hitoki-yama?) in the background. Within this A.R. World, Tsukasa assumes the guise of a police officer with the talent of understanding and speaking the Gurongi language.[1][2][3][4][5][5][6][6]

Ai Yashiro[edit]

Ai Yashiro (八代 藍 Yashiro Ai?), referred to as "Big Sis" (あねさん Ane-san?) by Yusuke, is a detective and the leading operative of the police force formed to fight the Gurongi. She mistakes Decade for "Unidentified Lifeform #10" (未確認生命体十号 Mikakunin Seimeitai Jūgō?) after Decade destroys Baberu.[3][4] While investigating the lair of the Gurongi to take out the resting Gamio, she and her group are overwhelmed by the miasma caused by the Gurongi leader's revival. However, Yusuke is unable to save her in time because the poison she breathed in later killed her. Prior to her death, she makes Yusuke promise that he will fight in order to protect everyone's smiles.[5][6]

Ai Yashiro is portrayed by Hiroko Sato (佐藤 寛子 Satō Hiroko?).

N-Gamio-Zeda[edit]

Wolf Monster N-Gamio-Zeda (オーカミ種怪人 ン・ガミオ・ゼダ Ōkami Shu Kaijin N Gamio Zeda?) is the king of the Gurongi in the World of Kuuga;, he is also called "The Ultimate Darkness" (究極の闇 Kyūkyoku no Yami?). He refers to himself as otherworldly because he should have never been revived, a fact that even he seems to believe, wondering why he was awakened. He is sealed and the Gurongi are attempting to unseal him with a Sacred Gegeru, targeting five police women without spilling blood to revive him. Though they obtain four kills, Tsukasa uses Ai as bait to lure the Gurongi out and gives her a nose bleed to ruin the Gegeru.[3][4] The effects of the distortion revive Gamio anyways, and he uses his power to convert every human corpse within his Miasmic aura into a Gurongi. Although his ultimate goal is to have his sired Gurongi destroy each other, Gamio is destroyed by Kuuga and Decade performing a combo attack.[5][6]

N-Gamio-Zeda is voiced by Fumihiko Tachiki (立木 文彦 Tachiki Fumihiko?), who was the narrator for Kamen Rider Kuuga.

Gurongi[edit]

Main article: Gurongi

The Gurongi Tribe (グロンギ族 Gurongi Zoku?) are a mysterious, ancient civilization that can transform into monsters to kill people for their ruthless game, or Gegeru (ゲゲル?) in the Gurongi Language. They are referred to by the police as Unidentified Life Forms (未確認生命体 Mikakunin Seimeitai?) and are named in a "Group-Species-Creature type" order.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

  • Me-Gyarido-Gi (メ・ギャリド・ギ Me Gyarido Gi?): A hermit crab monster of the Me Group, labeled Unidentified Life Form #7 (未確認生命体七号 Mikakunin Seimeitai Nanagō?). He battles Kuuga and is destroyed by his Dragon Form's Splash Dragon attack.

  • Go-Baberu-Da (ゴ・バベル・ダ Go Baberu Da?): A bison monster of the Go-group that is labeled "Unidentified Life Form #9" (未確認生命体九号 Mikakunin Seimeitai Kyūgō?). Baberu is forced by Decade to reveal the nature of the Gegeru before being destroyed by Decade's Dimension Kick.

N-Gamio-Zeda is able to create various Gurongi from human corpses using his miasma, but some are later absorbed by him in a last effort to defeat Kuuga and Decade. The remaining Gurongi died after Gamio is defeated.[5][6]

World of Kiva[edit]

The World of Kiva (キバの世界 Kiba no Sekai?) is the version of reality where Kamen Rider Kiva takes place. Unlike the original series, this world allows Fangires and humans to coexist, with the King's servants destroying the rebellious Fangires. The backdrop that allows entry into the World of Kiva depicts a nighttime cityscape with Castle Doran emerging from a building. Within this A.R. World, Tsukasa assumes the identity of a violinist with the talent of playing a violin solo similar to those of Otoya and Wataru Kurenai.[5][6][7][8][9][10]

Wataru[edit]

Wataru (ワタル Wataru?) is a twelve-year-old half-Fangire boy, having the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Kiva (仮面ライダーキバ Kamen Raidā Kiba?) with the aid of Kivat-bat the 3rd. Referred to as the Prince (王子 Ōji?) by his servants, Wataru is reluctant to claim the title of King (キング Kingu?) of the Fangires. He finds the overseeing of the ceasefire between humans and Fangires a very troublesome and unnerving task due to his fear of making friends and losing control over his Fangire impulses around them. But events leading to the Beetle Fangire attempting to disrupt the peace allows Wataru gets over this fear and takes his place as the official King of Fangires.[7][8][9][10]

He later appears in the World of the Rider War as his reality is absorbed into it. Leading the Riders of his world, Wataru refuses to listen to Tsukasa and Yusuke in uniting all Riders to defeat Dai-Shocker and stop the convergence of the worlds, while in grief over IXA's death. He even went so far to allow the Queen of the Fangires, Yuki, to marry Apollo Geist for the World of Kiva to have an advantage over the other A.R. Worlds, but later changes his mind when the Fangire betrayed them to Dai-Shocker.[11][12] After defeating Super Apollo Geist, the convergence of the worlds continues and the World of Kiva and Wataru disappear.[13][14] However, in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010, he is resurrected after Tsukasa has been killed by Kamen Rider Kiva-la. He later appears alongside the Riders of the Nine Worlds to revive Tsukasa and help him battle Super Shocker, assuming Emperor Form with the help of Decade's K-Touch and later uses Castle Doran to fight the Super Crisis Fortress.

Wataru is portrayed by Arashi Fukasawa (深澤 嵐 Fukasawa Arashi?).

Kivat-bat the 3rd[edit]

Kivat-bat the 3rd (キバットバットⅢ世 Kibattobatto Sansei?) is the third generation of the Kivat-bat Family (キバットバット家 Kibattobatto Ke?). He formed a partnership with Wataru to give him the power of Kiva, attaching to the Kivat Belt (キバットベルト Kibatto Beruto?) to allow his human partner to transform and use other abilities through the Fuestles.[7][8][9][10]

Tomokazu Sugita (杉田 智和 Sugita Tomokazu?) reprises his role voicing Kivat-bat the 3rd.

Arms Monsters[edit]

The Arms Monsters (アームズモンスター Āmuzu Monsutā?) are servants of Kiva, each the last of his kind. Composed of Garulu (ガルル Garuru?) of the Wolfen Race (ウルフェン族 Urufen Zoku?), Basshaa (バッシャー Basshā?) of the Merman Race (マーマン族 Māman Zoku?), and Dogga (ドッガ Dogga?) of the Franken Race (フランケン族 Furanken Zoku?), they support Kiva by turning into the weapons that allow Kiva to change form.[7][8] They are absorbed into Beetle Fangire's breast plate and shoulder armor when they question their new king's intentions of removing the human/Fangire coexistence law.[9][10]

In addition to these alternate versions of the Arms Monsters, the original versions appear in the timeline within the World of Den-O in The Onigashima Warship, where the wayward Urataros, Kintaros, and Ryutaros hide within Jiro (Garulu), Riki (Dogga), and Ramon (Basshaa), respectively until they can be rescued.

Isshin Chiba (千葉 一伸 Chiba Isshin?), Kōki Miyata (宮田 幸季 Miyata Kōki?), and Takaya Kuroda (黒田 崇矢 Kuroda Takaya?), voice Garulu, Basshaa, and Dogga, respectively. Their original incarnations in The Onigashima Battleship are played by Kenji Matsuda (松田 賢二 Matsuda Kenji?), Yuuki Ogoe (小越 勇輝 Ogoe Yūki?), and Eiji Takigawa (滝川 英治 Takigawa Eiji?) respectively.

Ryo Itoya[edit]

Main article: Fangire § Spider

Ryo Itoya (糸矢 僚 Itoya Ryō?) is a strange young man who is in actuality the Spider Fangire (スパイダーファンガイア Supaidā Fangaia?). He is the first Fangire that Tsukasa and Natsumi encounter, and reveals to them the truce that exists between Humans and Fangires while posing for a photo in the Hikari Studio.

Sohto (創斗 Sōto?) reprises his role as Ryo Itoya from Kamen Rider Kiva.

Beetle Fangire[edit]

The Beetle Fangire (ビートルファンガイア Bītoru Fangaia?), whose true name is Attonement of the Garden Divided, the International Dateline (贖罪の園を分断する、日付変更線 Shokuzai no Sono o Bundan suru, Hizukehenkōsen?), is the previous King of the Fangire Race and a member of Insect Class (インセクトクラス Insekuto Kurasu?) Tribe. He was exiled for loving a human woman who gave birth to his half-breed successor, Wataru. Seeing the coexistence and peace between the two races as nothing more than a farce for his son's sake, the Beetle Fangire breaks the peace by attacking humans to gather their Life Energy and reclaim his title, even stealing Kivat from Wataru.[7][8] His actions of removing the law to restart past conflicts between the two races provide the motivation for Wataru to step up and truly claim his place as King of the Fangires. In the end, he is weakened by Decade's Kiva Arrow, then fatally wounded by a Dimension Kick/Darkness Moon Break combo. Revealing that he knew of the Fangire's true identity and intent before he dies, Tsukasa plays a final song for him before the man shatters.[9][10]

However, some of these Fangires are unable to follow this law due to their instincts. Each Fangire belongs to a specific class based on the animal form it takes.[7][8][9][10] Several Fangires also appear in the first episode when Natsumi is trapped within the changing dimensions.

Though no harm occurs to the Rider while in the Mirror World, a battle in the real world can be fatal and use of Vent cards outside a battle is forbidden. The backdrop used to arrive in this world shows Dragredder flying within the Mirror World as shown in a mirrored time display screen on a skyscraper. Within this A.R.

In BOARD, there is a ranking system with Ace (エース Ēsu?) at the top followed by King, Queen, Jack, and the numbers with Two at the bottom. The backdrop used to arrive in this world shows a hand of facedown Rouse cards with the Ace of Spades (Blade's Change Beetle) face up. Within this A.R. World, Tsukasa assumes the role of chief waiter within BOARD and is given the ability to completely destroy Undead without sealing them.,[17][18][19][20][21][22]

Kazuma Kendate[edit]

Kazuma Kendate (剣立 カズマ Kendate Kazuma?) is a Rank Ace employee of BOARD who has the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Blade (仮面ライダーブレイド Kamen Raidā Bureido?) with the sealed Beetle Undead. However, due to his ranking, Kazuma is prideful to the point of seeing himself to be invincible. It is not until after he gets demoted while Tsukasa arrives that he realizes that ranking is not everything and that followers are just as important as leaders. Soon after helping him with the crisis occurring in his world, Kazuma thanks Tsukasa who is confident that he would look after the Ace Lunch. He later assigns himself as a president of BOARD after Hajime/Chalice's defeat.[19][20][21][22] He sometimes calls Tsukasa "cheese", rather than "chief", though it is not known if this is made purposefully or not.[21][22]

Kazuma later appears in the World of the Rider War as his reality is absorbed into it, leading his Rider comrades and the Undead against Wataru's allies and the Fangire. Though at first he refuses to aid Tsukasa and Yusuke, Kazuma has a change of heart and joins in the fight against Super Apollo Geist with Kamen Rider Garren before the villain causes more worlds to merge into the World of the Rider War, destroying the World of Blade which causes its Riders to fade away as a result.[11][12] However, he is resurrected following Tsukasa's death in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010 and helps in reviving him and battles Super Shocker, assuming King Form as a result from Decade's K-Touch and later transforms into his Jack Form to fight the Super Crisis Fortress.

He dies along with Kuroba after his life energy is absorbed by Hajime to create the Joker card.[21][22]

A second Garren later appears in the World of the Rider War. This Garren eventually disintegrates together with Kazuma in the aftermath of Apollo Geist's merging of the Rider Worlds.

Mutsuki Kuroba is portrayed by Kazuma Kawahara (川原 一馬 Kawahara Kazuma?).

Hajime Shijo[edit]

Hajime Shijo (四条 ハジメ Shijō Hajime?) is the president of the BOARD Corporation who secretly uses the sealed Mantis Undead to assume the form of the legendary Kamen Rider Chalice (仮面ライダーカリス Kamen Raidā Karisu?). Because he is more interested in business ethnics, Hajime sees himself as the only thing keeping BOARD alive by offering his company's aid once paid by the government.[19][20] Furthermore, he conspires with Kamata by taking the other Rider Systems to begin a joint plan to take over the world by creating the Joker card from the DNA of all four Ace Undead. Being unable to get Kazuma to give him the Blay Buckle by normal means, Chalice makes his presence known during Decade and Blade's fights against the Paradoxa Undead and the other BOARD Riders, stripping Kazuma of his Blay Buckle before fighting Decade until Todoroki's sudden appearance. But Hajime escapes with the Garren Buckle as well, later taking the Leangle Buckle with his identity exposed to Hishigata and Mutsuki whom he adbucts and sacrifices to complete the Joker card. Assuming the form of the Joker (ジョーカー Jōkā?), Hajime meets his end at the hands of Blade and Decade.[21][22]

Unlike the original Kamen Rider Chalice, the Chalice Rouzer that Hajime Shijo uses is a Rider System rather than bestowed upon him.

Hajime Shijo is portrayed by Ruo (累央?).

Normally, he is disguised as a man named Kamata (鎌田?). After being exposed in the World of Ryuki (having been taken there by Narutaki), Kamata returns to the World of Blade where he works with Hajime in a plot to take over the world as the chairman of the BOARD Corporation. After helping Hajime steal the three other Rider Systems, Kamata helps him create the Joker Rouse Card. He is later defeated alongside the Joker by Decade and Blade.[21][22]

In this world, students of the Smart Brain High School (スマートブレイン・ハイスクール Smāto Burēn Hai Sukūru?) are being attacked nightly by monsters known as the Orphnoch. The backdrop used to enter the World of Faiz is a splitscreen featuring the Autovajin in Battle Mode and blue butterflies, referencing Smart Lady, a character from the original series who was Smart Brain Corporation's mascot of sorts. Within this A.R. World, Tsukasa assumes the role of a Smart Brain High student and is able to surpass the talent and intelligence of all of Lucky Clover, such as skills in tennis. Daiki's treasure in this world is the Faiz Driver, but eventually he relents and takes the unused Orga Driver instead.[21][22][23][24][25][26]

Takumi Ogami[edit]

Takumi Ogami (尾上 タクミ Ogami Takumi?) is a hot-blooded boy who protects Smart Brain High from the Orphnoch, though his reason for doing this is a mystery. Like his namesake in 555, Takumi has the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Faiz (仮面ライダーファイズ Kamen Raidā Faizu?) through the use of the Faiz Gear along with assuming the form of the Wolf Orphnoch (ウルフオルフェノク Urufu Orufenoku?), both of which were aspects of his namesake Takumi Inui in 555.[23][24][25][26] While he does not appear to help in reviving Tsukasa in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010 he still appears to help him battle Super Shocker, assuming Blaster Form with the help of Decade's K-Touch and later uses the Jet Sliger to fight the Super Crisis Fortress.

Takumi Ogami is portrayed by Syunsuke Seino (制野 峻右 Seino Shunsuke?). In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010, Faiz is voiced by Kenji Akabane (赤羽根 健治 Akabane Kenji?).

World, Tsukasa finds himself wearing a trenchcoat and bucket hat, the same clothing as the Past Man and given abilities similar to those of a Singularity Point. Daiki's treasure in this world is the DenLiner.[29][30][31][32][33][34] The World of Den-O arc coincides with theatrical release of Cho Kamen Rider Den-O & Decade Neo Generations: The Onigashima Warship, which takes place within the continuity of Decade like Kamen Rider Den-O: I'm Born! did with Den-O.[35][36] And later Daiki returns to the World of Den-O to settle things with Reiji Kurosaki who transforms into Kamen Rider G Den-O in Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, part of Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider The Movie: Cho-Den-O Trilogy.

Together with Tsukasa, Momotaros regains his true form and they destroy the Alligator Imagin, the force behind the Mole Imagin attacks whom he believed caused the crisis. But once Momotaros returns to the DenLiner and is reunited with Ryotaro and Kotaro, he learns the Oni Brothers are behind the distortions in their world, just as he disappears, finding himself on Onigashima as part of the Oni Conquest legend.[33][34][35][36] Whenever Momotaros possesses someone, the person starts wearing a red scarf and has his/her hair spiked upwards, returning to normal when Momotaros leaves the body. He later helps Tsukasa in Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker by assuming his Tarōs form with the Momotaros Final Form Ride Card and using the Kiva Arrow to assist Decade and Diend in defeating Ikadevil and his minions and in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010 where he assumes his Super Climax Form with the help of Decade's K-Touch and later uses the DenLiner to fight the Super Crisis Fortress.

For an unknown reason, the Tarōs have lost the ability to exist outside of time and in normal space, but they can now possess anyone at will in order to transform into Den-O. Urataros, Kintaros, and Ryutaros all possess Tsukasa, before possessing Natsumi and using her body to transform into Den-O to fight Decade, believing he's to blame for what is occurring.[31][32] After Kohana disciplines the three from jumping to conclusions and using Natsumi's body, the three remained on the DenLiner. Once Momotaros returns to the DenLiner and is reunited with Ryotaro and Kotaro. Kotaro mentions the Oni Brothers being behind the distortions in their world, just as three Tarōs disappear with Momotaros, finding themselves in 1930, where they hid by possessing the original Arms Monsters of Kamen Rider Kiva and became rice thieves. Rescued by the DenLiner crew, they join the battle on Onigashima where they possess the summoned Kamen Riders G3, Caucasus, Ohja.[33][34][35][36] Like Momotaros, the Tarōs also change the appearance of any person they possess: Urataros dresses them in a suave way (Tsukasa, for example, wears a white tuxedo and top hat under his possession), Kintaros gives them a feudal Japan-era look, and Ryutaros gives an 80s' hip hop style to the person, making him/her able to breakdance.

Braving his displeasure later, she and Todoroki convince Ibuki and Zanki that allying the three schools would be the best thing for the future of Ongekidō. With Tsukasa's help, they convince their masters, and she is promoted from apprentice to teacher.[43][44] Akira later appears in the World of the Rider War after her reality is absorbed into it, killed by Kamen Rider Saga.[11][12] However, when Decade is killed by Kiva-La, the World of Hibiki is restored along with Akira and Todoroki.

Because he lost his righteous heart through his desire to become stronger, Hibiki is consumed by his Oni power and starts his metamorphosis into the legendary half-Oni half-Makamou, Gyuki (牛鬼 Gyūki?, Ox Demon). As a result, Hibiki adopts a lazy and rude attitude to most people, wears modern clothing, and even attempts to drive Asumu away in an attempt to retire from being an Oni. It is only when Kuuga is about to get killed by a Tengu Makamou that Hibiki decides to assume his Oni form and transforms into Gyuki as a result, wounding Ibuki and Zanki before being driven away by their pupils.[41][42] Knowing that he will no longer be able to assume his human or Oni form again should he transform into Gyuki, he gives up his Transformation Tuning Fork Onkaku to Daiki Kaito to give to Asumu, who becomes the new Hibiki and must slay his former master as his final request.[43][44]

Hibiki is portrayed by David Ito (デビット伊東 Debitto Itō?), while his Gyuki form is voiced by Keikō Sakai (酒井 敬幸 Sakai Keikō?).

Makamou[edit]

Main article: Makamou

The Makamou (魔化魍 Makamō?) are an assortment of monstrous creatures that usually dwell in the rural areas of Japan and consume any human beings as food. There are two main variations of this group: the bestial Giant Type and the humanoid Summer Type.[41][42][43][44] In the first episode, Makamou such as the Bakegani and Ooari attack Natsumi while others like the Ubume were involved in the all-out battle among the monster groups that destroys the world.[1][2]

  • Kappa (カッパ?): A Summer Type snapping turtle/frog-like Makamou, it was first one that Tsukasa and company encounter before Asumu arrives to fight it. In the end, the Kappa is destroyed by Decade using Kabuto's Rider Kick.
  • Bakeneko (バケネコ?): A trio of Summer Type humanoid cat Makamou. While the first two are destroyed by Zanki and Ibuki, the last one evades them before being destroyed by Decade's Dimension Kick.
  • Ooari (オオアリ Ōari?): A Giant Type ant Makamou.
  • Tengu (テング?, 18): A Summer Type ape/parrot Makamou that attacked Hibiki and Asumu, overpowering Kuuga until Hibiki assumes his Oni form and destroys the Makamou.
  • Ubume (ウブメ?): A Giant Type oarfish Makamou with white bird wings.
  • Bakegani (バケガニ?): A Giant Type swimming crab Makamou, larger than the average type with more pincers. It is released by Takeshi Asakura/Kamen Rider Ouja and appears with Narutaki riding on it once Gyuki is destroyed. The Bakegani is destroyed through the combined efforts of Hibiki, Decade, Diend, Amaki, Todoroki, Ibuki, and Zanki.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Shouichi Ashikawa (芦河 ショウイチ Ashikawa Shōichi?) is a composite of the three main characters in the Kamen Rider Agito series, with his name being a portmanteau of all three characters' names: Shouichi Tsugami (津上 翔一 Tsugami Shōichi?) (Agito), Ryō Ashihara (葦原 涼 Ashihara Ryō?) (Gills) and Makoto Hikawa (氷川誠 Hikawa Makoto?) (G3).
