|This article is about a/an series of devices in Kamen Rider Ryuki and Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight.|
Visors (バイザー Baizā), or Summoning Machine (召喚機 Shōkanki), are special card readers used by the Riders in Kamen Rider Ryuki (and the American Kamen Rider Dragon Knight). Each is modeled either after the Rider's Contract Monster or weapons with similar designs to them. When an Advent Deck's cards are placed inside of them, the Visors conjure the weapons or attacks the card possesses while announcing its name. However, the cards' effects will still be bound to the Rider who had them naturally, as Shinji once found out the hard way when he tried to use Zolda's Cards in his Dragvisor and they went to Zolda instead of him.
There is another type of Visor called Zwei (ツバイ Tsubai, lit. "2" in German), which are exclusive to Riders that managed to obtain and activate a Survive Card. Zwei-type Visors in Kamen Rider Ryuki, such as Ryuki Survive's Dragvisorzwei, have an echoing voice when a Advent Card is inserted, and feature a colored clear cover over the card-slotting ports. They also have a second card slot meant for the Survive Card. Dragon Knight's versions of the Zwei Visors feature the same voice as the other Visors.
Kamen Rider Visors
- Main article: Dragvisor
The Dragvisor (ドラグバイザー Doragu Baizā), originally called the Ridevisor (ライドバイザー Raido Baizā) until entering the contract with Dragreder, is Kamen Rider Ryuki's Visor. It is a gauntlet in the shape in Dragreder's head.
When using the Survive Rekka Advent Card, it detaches from the arm and becomes the Dragvisorzwei (ドラグバイザーツバイ Doragu Baizā Tsubai), which bares resemblance to Dragranzer's head. This iteration of the Dragvisor can be used as a short sword for the Burningsaber attack or a firearm for the Meteorbullet attack alongside Dragranzer when using Sword Vent and Shoot Vent respectively.
As the Ridevisor, it was the only Visor besides the Scissors Visor to spring open on its own without being manipulated by the Rider.
- Main article: Darkvisor
The Darkvisor (ダークバイザー Dāku Baizā) is a rapier Visor with designs similar to Darkwing used by Kamen Rider Knight. It serves as his primary weapon when not using his Advent Cards. It can also be used without the need to transform.
When using the Survive Shippu Advent Card it becomes the Darkvisorzwei (ダークバイザーツバイ Dāku Baizā Tsubai), an arm-mounted scabbard resembling Darkraider. He can pull a sword from it without the use of Sword Vent, though the card does exist, and use it as a bowgun with Shoot Vent when the sword is still attached. It can also double as a shield.
- Main article: Scissorsvisor
The Scissorsvisor (シザースバイザー Shizāsu Baizā) is a pair of shears on Kamen Rider Scissors left forearm. It resembles one of Volcancer's claws and serves as his weapon when not using Advent Cards. Other than Ryuki's original Ridevisor, it is the only Visor to spring open on its own without the Rider pulling it open in some way.
- Main article: Magnuvisor
The Magnuvisor (マグナバイザー Maguna Baizā) is Kamen Rider Zolda's Visor. It is a submachine gun modeled after Magnugiga, with Advent Cards being inserted into the location for the magazine clip. It has a cyclic rate of 120 rounds per minute. In Zolda's Final Vent, the Magnuvisor is inserted to the back of his Contract Monster and the trigger pulled to unleash the End of World attack. Dragon Knight's version for Kamen Rider Torque replaces the bullets with green laser shots.
- Main article: Evilvisor
The Evilvisor (エビルバイザー Ebiru Baizā) is Kamen Rider Raia's Visor. It is a small shield resembling Evildiver mounted on Raia's left forearm. In concept artwork, through the use of the Survive Shippu card the Evilvisor becomes a bow-like weapon called Evilvisorzwei.
- Main article: Metalvisor
The Metalvisor (メタルバイザー Metaru Baizā) is Kamen Rider Gai's Visor. It is fitted over his left shoulder and has a red horn piercing out of it, slightly resembling Metalgelas' head. The card is inserted underneath a black panel on the side that slides out.
- Main article: Venovisor
The Venovisor (ベノバイザー Beno Baizā) is a scepter-like Visor resembling Venosnaker used by Kamen Rider Ouja. It is not used in combat as much as Ouja's Veno Saber. However, in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight, Strike used Venovisor in combat several times. He placed the Venovisor onto Sting's shoulder and that generated a white aurora around Sting which (when the Venovisor was removed) caused Sting to collapse.
- Main article: Destvisor
- Main article: Gazellevisor
The Gazellevisor (ガゼルバイザー Gazeru Baizā) is a Gigazelle-styled Visor mounted on Kamen Rider Imperer's right knee. It is the only Visor besides the Slashvisor without moving parts, the cards activating a second after being inserted.
- Main article: Biovisor
The Biovisor (バイオバイザー Baio Baizā) is Kamen Rider Verde's Visor resembling the head of his Contract Monster, Biogreeza. It is located on Verde's left thigh and includes a clip with a cord to place Advent Cards in before it retracts to activate the card. It is the only Visor which triggers its cards while they are still visible, as it has no cover to close over them.
- Main article: Blancvisor
- Main article: Blackdragvisor
The Blackdragvisor (ブラックドラグバイザー Burakku Doragu Baizā) is a Dragblacker-styled gauntlet owned by Kamen Rider Ryuga that looks like a black version of Ryuki's Dragvisor, but with a deeper voice. In the second Ryuki S.I.C Hero Saga, with the Survive Rekka card it can transform into a gun named Blackdragvisorzwei that looks like a black version of Ryuki's Dragvisorzwei. Dragon Knight's version for Kamen Rider Onyx features the same voice as the other Visors.
- Main article: Goldvisor
The Goldvisor (ゴールドバイザー Gōrudo Baizā) is a Goldphoenix-styled scepter used by Kamen Rider Odin. While not used for combat, it is shown to open its wings and hold all three Survive Cards. When all the three Survive Cards are together, Kamen Rider Odin becomes immortal, as it is seen in Rider Time: Kamen Rider Ryuki.
- Main article: Slashvisor
The Slashvisor (スラッシュバイザー Surasshu Baizā) is the Visor used by the Alternatives mounted on the right forearm. Unlike real Visors, the Advent Cards are swiped through the terminal rather than placed in (similar to the Rouzers in Kamen Rider Blade), it has a female computer voice (although, according to theory, it is a pitched-up Visor voice to sound female), and does not resemble the Alternatives' Contract Monster, Psyco-Rogue. It is the only Visor other than the Gazellevisor to not have moving parts, as cards used in it disappear into a burst of blue flames when activated after being swiped. Dragon Knight's version for Master Eubulon features the same voice as the other Visors.
- Main article: Abyssvisor
The Abyssvisor (アビスバイザー Abisu Baizā) is the Visor used by Kamen Rider Abyss, mounted on the left forearm. Unlike other Riders', it is not similar to Abyss' Contract Monsters, Abysslasher and Abysshammer, but rather their fused form, Abyssodon.
Behind the scenes
- In the original series, the standard Visor voice had a voice filter applied to it in order to make it sound more electronic. However, in later crossovers, this voice filter would be omitted, leading to the voice sounding more natural.
