- "Semper Fi"
- ―Chris's motto and last words before being vented[src]
Christopher "Chris" Ramirez is a former Marine soldier who was medically discharged for asthmatic complications, as it would have negatively effected his service. Because he came from a family where the previous generations all have been Marines, he broke tradition and became estranged with his father. He was later visited by Xaviax who provided him an advent deck to transform into Kamen Rider Sting.
While Chris' father and the doctor argued, he was approached by Xaviax in the form of Special Agent Simons who gave Chris an Advent Deck under the assumption that he is fighting evil aliens from another dimension and becomes Kamen Rider Sting armed with a stingray Advent Deck. Meanwhile, JTC shows Maya pictures of Chris in Kamen Rider form when he appears to her in person. In attempt to bring Chris into the open, Maya and her friends staged a monster attack with little success. Maya did, however catch Chris in action fighting a Mirror Monster. After destroying one of Xaviax's monsters alongside Dragon Knight, Chris proceeds to arrest Kit under the assumption that he is one of the aliens. They soon notice a fight between Kamen Rider Wing Knight and Kamen Rider Thrust. After Thrust leaves, Chris briefly fights Wing Knight as Kamen Rider Dragon Knight tries to convince him to not fight him. Kamen Rider Sting later fights Kamen Rider Wing Knight and their battle continues on Ventara, but an asthma attack leaves Chris defenseless. Kamen Rider Wing Knight shows mercy and does not vent Kamen Rider Sting.
This action sows the seeds of doubt in Chris' mind, and after further urging from Maya, Chris decides to team up with Len and Kit and fight against Xaviax and his evil plans. He helps Kit try to get Brad to help fight Xaviax, but unfortunately, Brad refuses to listen. Following Kamen Rider Thrust being sent to the Advent Void, Chris is told about the Advent Void and agrees to help Len and Kit. Chris is brought up to speed when Kit, Len, and Maya tell him about Xaviax and what has happened up to now. After talking to them, he states that they must stop Xaviax at all costs. However, he refuses to help Kit and Len prompting Maya to go after him. When she does go after him, he recaps to her what he did before learning that Xaviax tricked him. After that, he is attacked by Kamen Rider Strike where he is then saved by Wing Knight and Dragon Knight. While meeting up with JTC, he confronts Strike once more putting up more of a fight thanks to a little training by Len. Strike leaves as soon as Wing Knight and Dragon Knight show up once again. JTC later attempts to change Chris' loyalties, saying that Xaviax would use high-tech medical technology to cure his asthma ("You can be a Marine again"), as long as he betrayed and vented Wing Knight. Chris does not listen, citing the Marine motto Semper Fidelis, or "Always Faithful". The two transform and fight once again, and Chris manages to escape on Evildiver. Chris continues to fight knowing full well his asthma would eventually overtake him and threaten his life, but he would rather go down with honor than stay on the sidelines. During a battle with Strike, Axe and Spear, Len is almost vented by Strike, but Chris jumps in the way, sacrificing himself to save his friend. Chris is the fifth Kamen Rider to be vented in the series, but the first one that was fighting for Earth and Ventara as opposed to their own interests. Kit and Len both vow to find a way to bring Chris back when they claim his Advent Deck.
During the final battle, the Ventaran Sting was rescued from the Advent Void and used his Link Vent to destroy Xaviax.
As revealed in Episode 40, Eubulon, after bringing Chris back from the Advent Void, healed him of his asthma. He was then said to currently be enlisted in the Marines. Despite being cured of his asthma by Eubulon, it is unknown or it is never stated if Chris' memory is erased by Eubulon, like the earth riders except for Kit, but it is assumed that Eubulon either forget or decides to let Chris keep his memory of being Kamen Rider Sting.
Kamen Rider Sting
Chris can transform into Kamen Rider Sting using his Advent Deck and V Buckle upon forming a contract with Evildiver. His Visor, the Evilvisor, is small shield mounted on his left arm. Raia's punching power, kicking power, and jump height are identical to Wing Knight's, but he is slightly slower.
Through the use of the Swing Vent Advent Card, Sting can arm himself with the Evil Whip, a whip derived from Evildiver's tail. Sting can also use the Copy Vent to summon a copy of his opponent's weapon
By using his Final Vent, Sting can execute his finisher, the Hide Venom, in which he rides on Evildiver's back and rams into the enemy.
