Danton (ダントン)[1] was the co-creator of the Gamma World with Adonis and Edith. His monstrous form is called Evolude (エヴォリュード Evoryūdo). He is one of Makoto Fukami's three fathers.

Character History

Great Gamma War

Danton once worked alongside Adonis and Edith to create a new world for the Gamma. However, Danton soon learned how terrible the world that they had created and came up with an idea to remodel the people of Gamma, as he predicted that a system relying on the Great Eye will eventually collapse. However, Adonis disapproved of his ways, eventually leading to a great war between Danton's and Adonis' own troops, with Adonis assuming victory. Danton was soon imprisoned and thrown into space.[2]

Before he was imprisoned, he had completed his creations of his "children", Makoto and Kanon Fukami after many failed prototypes.

Returning to Gamma World

Years later, Danton made his way back to Gamma World[2] and later killed Gyro. Makoto as Specter encountered Danton, with their clash leading Danton to realize he had encountered his own son.

As he predicted, the citizens are suffering the effects of the red sky, under these circumstances, Danton promised Makoto to save the Gamma World by remodeling the citizens which soon Makoto accepted after learning his true origin. He showed his deep care for Makoto and Kanon, even sacrificing his left arm to save Kanon and scolded Makoto for not protecting Kanon well.

Specter VS Danton

Danton was soon challenged by Alain, but interfered by Makoto. But when Makoto and Alain had their clash, Danton showed his cruel personality to Kanon as Kanon still refused Danton's way despite learning the truth of herself. Danton almost killed Kanon and called her a failure, but he was stopped by Makoto. With Makoto finally coming to his senses, Danton showed his evolved form and fought well against Makoto in his new form, Sin Specter. Danton was soon defeated by Sin Specter's rider kick, realizing his mistakes and thanked Makoto before he died. In the post-credit scene, he was alongside Daigo and Ryu were seen as Makoto's respected fathers. Ghost RE:BIRTH: Kamen Rider Specter

Personality

Danton is a hard-headed person who actually wants to give a peaceful life to people. However, the methods he uses to do so end up being twisted and wrong, despite his intentions, which from a point of view could be seen as in good faith.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Danton is portrayed by James Onoda (ジェームス 小野田 Jēmusu Onoda). As Evolude, his suit actor is Kazuya Okada (岡田 和也 Okada Kazuya)[3].

Concept Art

Evolude concept art

Evolude was designed by Niθ (ニシー Nishī) from Nitro+.

  • Evolude's suit is a recolored and remodeled Megahex suit. The face is conscious of Ghost's eyeball design.[3]


Notes

  • "Evolude" is a portmanteau of "Evolute" and "Evolved".
  • Though Danton is a citizen/prisoner in the Gamma World, his monster form does not have a "Gamma-" prefix.
    • This is because he worked on the Evolude plan which opposes the Gamma plan of Adonis.
  • Danton is somewhat similar to Kaito Kumon from Kamen Rider Gaim as both tried to change the world into an ideal one, though their methods could be seen as morally wrong.
    • However, Danton's methods seem to be more twisted and evil, though he eventually redeems himself in the end.
    • In general, he serves as a foil to Adel. While both of their methods are morally wrong, Danton wants peaceful life to people, while Adel plans to create a perfect world.
  • His name is based on Georges Danton, one of the leading figures in the early stages of the French Revolution.
