This article is about a/an Orphnoch in Kamen Rider 555.

Akai (赤井), otherwise known as the Cactus Orphnoch (カクタスオルフェノク Kakutasu Orufenoku), was one of the three bounty hunters sent to take back the Faiz Gear. Akai was an impulsive partner of Midorikawa who intercepts Keitaro with the Faiz Gear.

Taking the belt from Keitaro, Akai uses the Faiz Gear to backstab Midorikawa before going after Takumi and company. But with the Auto Vajin's aid, Takumi regains the Faiz Gear and kills the Cactus Orphnoch with the Crimson Smash.

Once transformation is completed, the Faiz Armor has several key features in its design to offer protection to the user. Like all Rider gears, the Faiz armor manifests when the Faiz Driver generates Photon Blood, a glowing substance generates the soft Sol Foam suit, Sol Metal armor, and Fullmetal Lung chest armor via traveling through the red Photon Streams that ends at the Photon Terminals at the gauntlet and Power Anklet greaves, the right Anklet having a Energy Holster that the Faiz Pointer can be connected to. The helmet is unique due to its Global Feeler antenna to link up to Smart Brain's networks and Ultimate Finder visor that gives Faiz incredible vision to see in darkness, giving the illusion of a glowing eye, and a limited amount of x-ray vision.
