*''[[Kamen Rider V3]]'': Though [[Shiro Kazami]] was rebuilt into [[Kamen Rider V3 (Rider)|V3]] by the [[Double Riders]] for benevolent purposes, he was built with their power and remodeled just as they were by Shocker. [[Joji Yuki]] was a [[Destron]] scientist that became the cyborg [[Riderman]] that was intended to defeat [[Shiro Kazami|V3]]. However, Riderman (gradually) joined V3's side when he realised the evil of Destron.

*''[[Kamen Rider Amazon]]'': [[Daisuke Yamamoto]] was given the Incan [[GiGi Armlet]] which he used to become [[Kamen Rider Amazon (Rider)|Amazon]] to fight [[Geddon]] and then the [[Garanda Empire]], who possessed the [[GaGa Armlet]] and wished to gain the GiGi Armlet as well to conquer the world. This is somewhat questionable though, as the Incans didn't seem to create the Armlets out of malicious intentions. It should also be noted that Elder Bago equipped the GiGi Armlet onto Daisuke to fight Geddon as well as to save him from dying.

Since Kivat-bat the 3rd chose to help humanity with Wataru from the start, this wouldn`t make Kiva's source of power evil. It should also be noted that the Fangires attacked the humans to drain their life energy due to it being necessary for their survival; however, some Fangires become addicted and succumb to their gluttony.

This article is about a/an power/concept in Kamen Rider Wizard.
"It doesn't matter if I'm not human. Even if I have the same powers as you, I'm not like you. And if you say you want to destroy the world, I will use this power for love and peace. That's the kind of Kamen Rider I believe in!"
Ryuga Banjo defying Blood Stalk[src]

The Cross of Fire (クロスオブファイヤー Kurosu obu Faiyā) is, according to Amadum, the embodiment of the power of the Kamen Riders and the monsters that they face, symbolized by a burning crucifix representing the sign of their sin, in being creations of evil. That shared origin allowed Amadum to absorb their powers, strengthening himself. Furthermore, because they strayed from the path of evil, Amadum considered them flawed creations compared to himself and the monsters who continued in that path.

However, due to the appearance of a new Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider Gaim, the battle is turned around and Amadum is defeated by the ones that he considered flawed creations. Neverending Story

Riders powers' association with evil

  • Kamen Rider Kuuga: While Kuuga was created to protect the Linto Tribe, the "Kuuga" character was not invented by the Linto but is actually borrowed from an incomplete Gurongi, tied to N-Daguva-Zeba who like Kuuga possesses an Amadam.
  • Kamen Rider Agito: The powers of Agito (as well as Gills and Another Agito) and the Lords he fought against originated from rival god-like brothers known as the Overlords, with the Overlord of Light bestowing the Power of Agito to humanity on his deathbed so they could evolve beyond the control of Overlord of Darkness. According to the Kamen Rider Agito Art Archives Icon, the Overlord of Light himself was a creation of the Overlord of Darkness so the origin of everything goes back to him.
  • Kamen Rider Ryuki: Ryuki and his contemporaries, whose nature varied between good and evil, fought by making contracts with certain Mirror Monsters. Though the Mirror Monsters were not created for evil purposes, they did result in the deaths of innocent humans. This is however not out of malice, but simply because they were considered food by the Mirror Monsters.
  • Kamen Rider 555: The Rider Gears of Kamen Rider Faiz and his contemporaries were created by Smart Brain to protect the Orphnoch King when he awakes, with the Faiz and Kaixa Gears being made for only Orphnochs to wear, with Delta still being in the prototype stages (thus allowing normal humans to use the Delta Gear). Takumi Inui, the main user of the Faiz Gear, is an Orphnoch himself, the Wolf Orphnoch. This however, is slightly questionable as some Orphnochs only tried to protect the Orphnoch King for their own survival, due to Smart Brain's many connections.
  • Kamen Rider Blade: Blade and his contemporaries fought using the power of the Undead they fought against via the Rouze Cards, which are sealed forms of the Undead. Also, the users of the Rider Buckles must meet a level of synchronization with Undead DNA to use them, with Blade's synchronization being so high, it made the King Form combine all of the sealed Suit of Spade Undead and put him at risk of becoming a Joker-classed Undead, which he eventually becomes to stop the Battle Royale.
  • Kamen Rider Hibiki: The Oni Rider contemporaries of Hibiki and himself, while trained to fight the monstrous Makamou, are demons that have the potential to become evil and, in the case of the A.R. Hibiki, part-Makamou themselves.
  • Kamen Rider Kabuto: The Masked Rider System that Kabuto and his contemporaries herald from was developed by the Native Worms to give to the humans that would form ZECT, to fight against the more malevolent Worms that would arrive later, although their primary goal would be the protection of the Native, above humanity itself, with some of them secretly plotting to take control of the world after the Worms had been eliminated.
  • Kamen Rider Den-O: Den-O, as well as Zeronos and New Den-O, fought against evil Imagin by bonding with benevolent Imagin partners. Not all the Imagin`s seemed evil however, as they mostly seemingly tried to change the timeline to ensure their own survival rather than to kill humans for the sake of killing humans.
  • Kamen Rider Kiva: The Kivats can freely bestow their powers to any creature they choose with most of the hosts being good from the start, though the energy they emit through their fangs to allow the individual to transform into a Kiva must have Fangire blood or DNA within them, otherwise the energy will kill them, such as was the fate of the second Dark Kiva. Since Kivat-bat the 3rd chose to help humanity with Wataru from the start, this wouldn`t make Kiva's source of power evil. It should also be noted that not all Fangires are evil by nature, with some choosing to co-exist with humans.
  • Kamen Rider Decade: The Decadriver was created for Tsukasa Kadoya to become Decade and lead Dai-Shocker as its Great Leader, only for Tsukasa to fight monsters and eventually Dai-Shocker itself after losing his memory. The Diendriver was a prototype stolen by Daiki Kaito. By extension, since they use the powers of previous Kamen Riders, they're connected to their evils as well.
