The Transformation Belt Beyondriver (変身ベルト ビヨンドライバー Henshin Beruto BiyonDoraibā) is a transformation device used by Kamen Rider Woz. It uses Miridewatches as its primary collectible device.

Design

The Beyondriver is composed of the following parts:

  • Mapping Slot (マッピングスロット Mappingu Surotto) - A slot that is used to insert Miridewatches.
  • Crank-in Handle (クランクインハンドル Kuranku In Handoru) - The handle used to push the Miridewatch into the Beyondriver's side. When pushed, the Miridewatch begins to transmit data into the Beyondriver.
  • Prime Frame Circuit (プライムフレームサーキット Puraimu Furēmu Sākitto) - The Beyondriver's green frame that surrounds the window. It is made up of the same durable material that covers the rest of the Beyondriver, and the Beyondriver's shape allows the material to wrap around vital internal mechanisms, shielding them from intense combat.
  • Beyond Future Riser (ビヨンドフューチャーライザー Biyondo Fuyūchā Raizā) - The blue strip located within the three green 'buttons' to the left. It is a theoretical realization device that materializes Kamen Rider Woz's suit and armor by using data within the inserted Miridewatch.
  • Miride Scope (ミライドスコープ Miraido Sukōpu) - The window in the middle. Its structure is specially designed to enable high-speed optical communication with a Miridewatch. It contains a data projection mechanism that projects Kamen Rider Woz's equipment into the air before it is realized. To cope with the large amounts of data being released by the inserted Miridewatch, the Miride Scope projects the suit/weapon in the air as various parts before compiling them together.
  • Winding Belt (ワインディングベルト Waindingu Beruto) - The strap. It scans the wearer's physique and clothes in order to adjust itself to ensure a tight, yet comfortable, grip.

Functionality

Transformation

To transform, the user presses a Miridewatch's Miride On Starter and inserts it into the Mapping Slot. Pressing the Miride On Starter again will cause the Miridewatch’s Gate Activator to open, revealing its Send Projector. A smartwatch is projected behind the user as geometric shapes appear around them. Closing the Crank-in Handle will send the data of the Miridewatch to the Miride Scope, initiating transformation

White Woz

Kamen Rider Woz
Happy New Woz 2019

Arriving from the timeline in which GeizRevive defeated Ohma Zi-O and prevented the rise of Ohma Zi-O, Woz brings the Beyondriver with him to assists the present day Geiz Myokoin defeat Sougo Tokiwa. White Woz would lose the Beyondriver after having his powers being absorbed by Hiryu Kakogawa and his poor choice of words when attempting to retrieve it back resulted in Black Woz taking the powers.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

The Beyondriver is voiced by AFRO (アフロ Afuro).[1]

Notes

  • Its name comes from the words Beyond and Driver.
  • Its color scheme is similar to Kamen Rider Necrom and Kamen Rider Cronus.
  • The toy version's activation with Miridewatches is similar, but also an inversion, of the use of the Gamer Driver, with the reflection of the device displayed on a panel in the center of the Driver, but requires a lever to be closed, instead of opened to show it.
    • In addition, one can activate a Ridewatch's Armor Time noise in the DX version by pumping the lever thrice.
  • Much like the aforementioned Riders, the systems of said Riders play a role (an inverse one) in the mechanics of the Beyondriver when compared to its predecessor:
    • Necrom's Mega Ulorder used the transformation trinket without having to press any buttons on it when docked, while the Miridewatch requires a button to be pressed while docked in the Driver.
    • The Buggle Driver II was technically compatible with any Rider Gashats, but the Beyondriver cannot use standard Ridewatches outside of finishers.
  • The Miride Scope's projection gimmick in the Beyondriver is a play on the word "projection" itself, as the word also means a forecast of the future. Both users of the Beyondriver fulfill this role of forecasting, or more aptly, "projecting" the future they envisioned.
    • Ironically, its user’s name sounds like the word “Was” which refers to the past.

ベルト

  • Similar to Ziku-Driver, the DX Beyondriver also has the katakana for "belt" (ベルト Beruto) on its battery slot cover.
  • The Ridewatch Break finishers are never used in the series.

Funny notes

  • The announcer sounds like he has a hard time believing Woz is a. Doesn't help that the TV Promo starts off with a single word.[2]
"WOZ?! (ウォズ?! WOZU?!)"
―Beyondriver[src]
  • In fact, a number of its announcements are done in a style of Funny Bruce Lee Noises much like Ryusei Sakuta/Kamen Rider Meteor's kiais. The slightly Chinese techno standby tune even sounds like it would fit right in with the Meteor Driver.
"ACTION! (アクション! Akushon!)"
―Beyondriver[src]
  • Due to the Driver using projection mapping technology, it announces Projection! (投影! Tōei!) when activating a Miridewatch, which could be a pun on Kamen Rider's producing studio Toei. Whether this was intentional is not known.
  • Further analysis makes it more clear: the Beyondriver is supposed to sound like a Director.
  • The clip from Woz's transformation sound doubles down on the announcer's seeming shock over Woz's rider status.
"Kamen Rider Woz? WOZ? (仮面ライダーウォズ?ウォズ?! Kamen Raidā Wozu? WOZU?)"
―Beyondriver[src]
  • Its announcement for Woz Ginga and its related forms? "Finally Time!!" Almost like at long last it finally gets the upgrade it's been waiting for.
