This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Zi-O.

In 2006, Arata Kagami (加賀美 新 Kagami Arata) was Kamen Rider Gatack (仮面ライダーガタック Kamen Raidā Gatakku, Masked Rider Gatack).

In 2019, the Kabuto Zecter comes to Arata's aid and allows him to briefly become Kamen Rider Kabuto (仮面ライダーカブト Kamen Raidā Kabuto, Masked Rider Kabuto) before Kabuto's powers are used to create the Kabuto Ridewatch.

History

Kamen Rider Zi-O

2006: Next Level Kabuto

Zi-O 37

Kamen Rider Gatack and Zi-O team up

In 2019, Arata is still working as a member of ZECT. He's on the mission to defeat a Worm who has copied the appearance of Shun Kageyama. He encounters Sougo Tokiwa in battle with a swarm of Worms and assists him as Kamen Rider Gatack. Then, Shun appears and they fight in Clock Up mode. After Shun is knocked out by Zi-O II, Another Kabuto, who is also revealed to be Sou Yaguruma, intervenes and the two escapes the scene. Arata explains about ZECT and his mission to Sougo and Woz, then leaves in confusion because the supposedly destroyed Shibuya district is thriving. Some time later, Arata is lured out by Shun for Yaguruma. He battles PunchHopper as Woz GingaFinaly battles Another Kabuto. He is subsequently captured by the mimicked Kageyama.

2019: The Chosen Kabuto

Somewhere, Kagami is being held hostage. The mimicked Kageyama only agrees to release him if the Riders give him the Ginga and Fourze Ridewatches, as he wants the meteorite carrying his Worm comrades to crash into Earth without fail. However, Sougo and Woz manage to free Kagami and prepare to fight. Kagami transforms into Gatack and charges at Kageyama, only to be stopped by Yaguruma as Another Kabuto. Being outnumbered 2 to 1, Gatack is soundly defeated by Another Kabuto and PunchHopper. PunchHopper would go on to take the Fourze and Ginga Ridewatches as he flees with Another Kabuto.

Back at Sougo's place, Kagami blames himself for the loss of the two Ridewatches, but Sougo says it's not anyone's fault. Kagami later admits to Sougo that he has never been the Kabuto Zecter's chosen one, and that he has never been able to defeat Kabuto. Sougo assures him that he is a strong warrior, and that if he becomes a King, he would like to have Kagami to fight alongside him and protect everyone. Kagami is amused, saying that even Tendou does not mention something like that.

On the rooftop of a building, Geiz and Woz are fighting Another Kabuto and PunchHopper. Four combatants use their respective finishing attacks and force one another out of their transformations. Kagami, Sougo and Tsukuyomi (who has just retrieved the stolen Ridewatches), arrive at the scene to help. As Sougo and Woz go into space to deal with the meteorite, Geiz and Kagami stay to fight PunchHopper and KickHopper.

KickHopper is defeated by Gatack in a clash of Rider Kicks. However, when he changes into Another Kabuto, he swiftly turn the table and knocks Gatack out of his transformation by his own Rider Kick. Kagami stands up, refusing to give in, declaring himself as the "deity of war". Suddenly, the Kabuto Zecter appears from the sky and Kagami is able to catch it. Seeing that the Zecter has finally accepted him as its user, he transforms into Kamen Rider Kabuto to fight Another Kabuto. Both fighters turn on ClockUp, but Kabuto quickly gains the upper hand. As Geiz Revive Shippuu has just finished off PunchHopper, Kabuto defeats Another Kabuto with a Rider Kick, destroying the Kabuto Anotherwatch as a result.

After the battle, the Kabuto Zecter in Kagami's hand turns into the Kabuto Ridewatch. He gives it to Sougo, saying that Sougo is going to need it in order to become a King.

Forms

Kagami was chosen by Gatack Zecter and became Kamen Rider Gatack. In 2019, he was chosen by the Kabuto Zecter and became Kamen Rider Kabuto.

Kabuto's Masked Form (マスクドフォーム Masukudo Fōmu) is a heavily armored form resembling a pupa. Due to the heavy armor, Masked Form offers strong defensive but low offensive capabilities. This is Kabuto's default form, until he flips the "horn" on the Kabuto Zecter (カブトゼクター Kabuto Zekutā), like a switch, to initiate the Cast Off (キャストオフ Kyasuto Ofu) command. This primes the armor to "Cast Off," which when fully activated, sends the armor flying off his body, destroying all lower Worms that get hit with the ejected armor parts and revealing the sleeker Rider Form. It is shown to be possible for Masked Form to be bypassed altogether, as seen in the Hyper Battle Video and by the alternate version of Kamen Rider Dark Kabuto in Kamen Rider Decade, by flipping the horn immediately after placing the Kabuto Zecter on the belt before the armor materializes. When Kabuto switches the horn on the Kabuto Zecter back to its original position, it will initiate Put On (プットオン Putto On) sequence, where all of the extra armor reattaches to him, restoring Masked Form either partially or completely.

The Armor of Masked Form consists of the following parts:

  • Kabuto Receiver (カブトレシーバー Kabuto Reshībā) is the V-shaped horn on the forehead, usually has more than four times the hearing ability of a person, listens to sounds in the range of 16 Hz to 120 thousand Hz, and can even hear a needle falling 5 km ahead.
  • Manipulator Arm (マニピュレーターアーム Manipyurētā Āmu) is the silver armor supported and reinforced by HP Pod (HPポッド HP Poddo), it is possible to continue to lift with heavy load even with heavy objects of 25 tons for a long time.
  • Lung Slit (ラングスリット Rangu Suritto) is the black shoulder tip that take in air. Gas is separated, converted into high-compression oxygen, and the oxygen concentration in the body is made up, and make Oxygen Value (オキシジェンバルプ Okishijen Barubu) spreads throughout the body. Only activated by qualified person can make him to be able to use the Masked Rider System freely.
  • Kabuto Exclusive Zect Mark (カブト専用ゼクトマーク Kabuto Sen'yō Zekuto Māku)
  • Enhanced Chest (強化チェスト Kyōka Chesuto) hidden inside the Masked Armor, stores high compressed oxygen which can be operated freely for more than 10 hours even above 5000 m above sea level. In Masked Form, Kabuto Horn is stored and isolated in chest.
  • Masked Armor (マスクドアーマー Masukudo Āmā) is molecularly coupled by electric force called van der Waals force. Also, by Cast Off, Masked Armor can blow off at the initial speed of 2000 m/s and can give damage to enemies nearby.

Kabuto Rider Form has three known variations of Rider Kick: a normal 180 degree roundhouse kick, a counter kick (360 degree roundhouse kick, which is used to surprise opponents who attempt to attack him from behind), and a flying side kick.
