|This article is about a/an transformation belt in Kamen Rider Kuuga.|
The Sonic Wave Transformation Belt Arcle (ソニックウェーブ 変身ベルト アークル Sonikku U~ēbu Henshin Beruto Ākuru) is Kuuga's transformation belt. An ancient belt created by the Lynt Tribe, it is capable of strengthening it's wearer and create a biological armor for them to use in combat, but is only usable to those with a righteous heart to prevent abuse of the belt's power. Originally used by the ancient Kuuga, Riku, it was inherited by Yusuke in the year 2000 when he was attacked by Zu-Gumun-Ba, with the belt immediately fusing into his body after he put it on.
When he transforms, it reappears around his waist and is always the same color as his current form. A stone embedded in the belt, called Amadam (アマダム Amadamu), is the source of Kuuga's power and is able to extend the lifespan of a person. The Amadam is also present on Daguva, the Gouram, and (in Kuuga's World in Decade) Gamio as well.
When Yusuke asked Sakurako the meaning of the symbols on the Arcle's sides, Sakurako said that it translates to "power".
- Main article: Amadam (Stone)
The Amadam was, as Sakurako Sawatari found in the Lynt scriptures, powered by the user's will and would corrode a weak user. Goma went berserk when an unrefined fragment of Daguva's Amadam was forced directly into his body. Gouram's Amadam reacts to Kuuga that if its master's will becomes clouded with power (referring to the ancient Lynt inscription: "when the holy spring dries up"), Gouram will start to crumble and be reduced to dust. Additionally, the Amadam also acts as a stabilizer to the bearer in order to prevent them from going berserk due to the power of Arcle as seen when the first user, later Mika, went out of control due to lack of this stone on their Arcle.
In this world the Arcle was given to Yusuke Onodera by Narutaki. It is unknown if the Ultimate Darkness sealed in the tomb was the true leader of the Gurongi, or if it was this world's first Kuuga, as the belt was found near his sealed remains.
- The transformation for Kuuga's Rising Ultimate resembles Takeshi Hongo's transformation sequence into Rider 1.
