|This article is about a/an transformation device in Kamen Rider Zero-One.|
The A.I.M.S. Shotriser (エイムズショットライザー Eimuzu Shottoraizā) is the transformation device and personal weapon of Kamen Rider Vulcan and Kamen Rider Valkyrie. It was produced for A.I.M.S. by ZAIA Enterprise. A silver variant without the transformation function is mass-produced for use by the regular soldiers of A.I.M.S.
The A.I.M.S. Shotriser is composed of the following parts:
- Rise Slot (ライズスロット Raizu Surotto) - A slot intended to insert Progrisekeys into. Once the Progrisekey is inserted into the internal Rise Port (ライズポート Raizu Pōto) within the Rise Slot, the A.I.M.S. Shotriser will begin learning the inserted Key's abilities.
- Authoriser (オーソライザー Ōsoraizā) - An authentication device built into the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. It authenticates Progrisekeys. If there is no abnormalities when transforming, the Authoriser will issue a temporary unlock code to unlock the Progrisekey and allow authentication, and thus transformation. The Authoriser can read a Progrisekey's status even without contact. However, this process cannot be performed if restrictions are placed on the Progrisekey.
- Move Dister (ムーブディスター Mūbu Disutā) - A small grey button located on top of the A.I.MS. Shotriser. It is used to disconnect Progrisekeys. When pushed, the Progrise key's connection is released, allowing one to remove it.
- Rise Loader (ライズローダー Raizu Rōdā) - A device used to read Progrisekeys. It reads the inserted Key's Rider Model (the Key's graphic of an animal skeleton), sends data to the Rider's bodysuit (to allow form changes and one to turn into different Kamen Riders) and then sends the enhanced data into the Fact Grip.
- Fact Grip (ファクトグリップ Fakuto Gurippu) - The grip. Inside it is a high-speed molding machine that molds various equipment based on data sent from the Rise Loader. It quickly created the armor and bodysuit from sent data and encapsulates it within a special SR Danger (SRダンガー SR dangā) compression capsule. When not used during transformation operations, the Fact Grip generates special 50 Calibur Anti-HumaGear AP bullets (50口径対ヒューマギア徹甲弾 50 kōkei tai hyūmagia tekkōdan) and sends it to the Shotrise Muzzle. Additionally, the Fact Grip acts as a relay that sends information and combat data to the user.
- Shotrise Trigger (ショットライズトリガー Shotto Raizu Torigā) - The trigger. 'Shotrise' operations, bullet firing and deathblow firing operations are performed by pulling it.
- Multiple Sight (マルティプルサイト Marutipuru Saito) - The A.I.M.S. Shotriser's targeting sight. Located underneath the Shotrise Muzzle. When the Riser is used as a transformation item, the Multiple Sight supports the user's transformation through the use of many sensors including optical sensors. After transformation, it sends all information and combat data acquired into the user's suit via the Fact Grip.
- Shotrise Muzzle (ショットライズマズル Shotto Raizu Mazuru) - The muzzle. It is coated with a Photon S Coat (フォトンSコート Foton S Kōto) photon coating, which reduces friction when something is shot out to obtain high velocity and long range. Recoil is cancelled by releasing itself backwards simultaneously to the shot. Since this mechanism functions regardless of the length of the gun's barrel, it is possible to adopt it to a short-type gun weapon with good portability and handling (the A.I.M.S Shotriser itself).
- Z-CON Band (Z－CONバンド Z-Kon Bando) - The belt strap. It is a flexible band that wraps around the user's waist, and is separate from the A.I.M.S Shotriser. It is made of the soft and highly flexible Z-Flex Metal (Zフレックスメタル Z Furekkusu Metaru), and its durability is raised by applying a special tough resistance laminate.
The user first activates a Progrisekey before inserting inside the Shotriser's key slot and then opening it. However, because Isamu does not have permission to use Progrisekeys, he must force open the Progrisekey before inserting it into the Shotriser. The user then pulls the trigger to send a specialized bullet that contains the Rider's bodysuit and armor. Transformation into a Kamen Rider is completed after the bullet comes into contact with the user. When transforming with the Assault Wolf Progrisekey, the bullet briefly transforms into Shooting Wolf's Rider Model before Fuwa catches it in his hand and crushes it, creating a series of floating projectors that materialize the suit around him. Each member that transforms must have an A.I. Chip, which allows them to become a Kamen Rider.
- Main article: Finisher (Zero-One)
To activate a finisher, the user pushes the Rise Starter on the inserted Progrisekey before pulling the trigger. Depending on if the Shotriser is being used as a gun or a belt, it has a different finisher.
Users (chronological order)
|User||Kamen Rider||Episode Obtained||Description|
|Isamu Fuwa|| ||I am the President and a Kamen Rider||Isamu took the Shotriser from an A.I.M.S. vehicle without Yua Yaiba's authorization during the Berotha Magia's rampage in order to destroy the corrupted HumaGear. Later, he gained the Z-CON Band during Kuehne Magia's rampage and used it to transform into Kamen Rider Vulcan.|
|Yua Yaiba|| ||That Man, Sushi Chef||Yua presumably gained both her Shotriser and Z-CON Band from ZAIA Enterprise before the attack of the Neohi Magia and used them to transform into Kamen Rider Valkyrie.|
Behind The Scenes
- The A.I.M.S. Shotriser is the first Kamen Rider transformation belt since the Mage's Belt from Kamen Rider Wizard to not use the word "Driver" in its name.
- Isamu transforms with the Shotriser in its Gun Mode, whereas Yua transforms with it in its Belt Mode.
- An odd quirk concerning the users is their transformation into their main form consists of white armor, but only the right side of the form is covered with armor based on the Progrisekey's animal. The exception is when an alternate form is used, as that transformation causes the animal-themed armor to usually cover the upper body, instead.
- The only constant is the user's face does not change in either type of transformation, a unique element that was rarely used in the Heisei Era, but never had this element have the face remain completely unaltered for form changes.
- Unlike the Hiden Zero-One Driver and MetsubouJinrai Forceriser, transformation with the Shotriser does not involve a projection of the inserted Progrisekey's Rider Model.
- The exception is the Assault Wolf Progrisekey, which creates a projection of the Shooting Wolf Rider Model.
- The ZAIA Slashriser is essentially the dagger variant of this, which is actually retooled from the Shotriser.
- When HumaGear Progrisekey is inserted into Shotriser, the authorization was called "Dreamrise" rather than "Authorise".
