|This article is about an evil organization in Kamen Rider Stronger.|
The Delzer/Delzer Army (デルザー軍団, Deruzā Gundan) is the name of an alliance of various commanders from the Majin race, the Cyborg Majin, and the armies under their control.
Throughout history, legends about various monsters around the world are inspired by the existence of a certain race with strange appearance and powers that inhabits Earth's underground, the Majin (魔人, Majin) race. They are descendants of ancient demons feared by humanity, living in secret from them.
In the modern age, some Majin, aiming to move from underground and wanting power to conquer the surface, undergo reconstruction procedures, becoming the powerful Cyborg Majin (改造魔人, Kaizō Majin).
Delzer Army (First Force)
General Shadow is the first Majin to leave to the surface in the modern era, eventually joining the organization Black Satan. However, disliking their methods and being snubbed by its leaders, he leaves the organization and decides to gather other Majin. After Black Satan's destruction, General Shadows rises to the surface leading the powerful Cyborg Majin and their armies. The Cyborg Majin are highly resistant to Electric attacks and, overconfident, General Shadow makes a game out of beating Stronger. He proposes that the commander who beats him would become the leader of the Delzer Army.
Each commander of the first force of the Delzer Army acts as the leader of an independent army, sometimes even plotting against each other. Although General Shadow is the head of the organization, he isn't a formal leader, and the other members don't have to follow him, although none challenge him.
Delzer Army (Second Force)
Soon, more Majin from around the world go to Japan. The second force of the Delzer Army obeys Marshal Machine and his mysterious boss.
Arriving in Japan, Marshal Machine forces Shadow to submit to him, and, under him, the Delzer Army acts as an unified force to defeat the Kamen Riders and conquer Japan. However, the organization is quickly destroyed by the combined efforts of Kamen Rider 1, Kamen Rider 2, Kamen Rider V3, Riderman, Kamen Rider X, Kamen Rider Amazon, and Kamen Rider Stronger.
Let's Go Kamen Riders
In an altered history where Shocker defeats the Double Riders and conquers the world due to combining the Shocker Medal with a Cell Medal from the future, General Shadow is the representative of the Delzer Army in Shocker's alliance. Eventually, the Kamen Riders unite and defeat this alliance in 2011, while General Shadow is destroyed at the hands of four other "allies of justice": Kikaider, Kikaider 01, Inazuman and Zubat.

After Dai-Shocker's alliance with Dai-Zangyack is revealed, both organizations are wiped out by a gathering of Kamen Riders and Super Sentai, General Shadow is defeated by Decade and the Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

Cyborg Majin (First Force)
They're Cyborg Majin who gather together in Japan alongside General Shadow in an abandoned Black Satan base. General Shadow acts as the head of the group, setting up a competition between its various commanders, but not a formal leader, letting them all act on their own. Shadow challenges them to beat Stronger in order to become the leader of the Delzer Army, and, aside from setting up that goal, had a passive attitude towards the organization.
