Eiji Tomari (泊 英志 [エイジ] Tomari Eiji) is Shinnosuke Tomari's son from a dystopian future who takes his role as Kamen Rider Drive (仮面ライダードライブ Kamen Raidā Doraibu) before being defeated by Paradox Roidmude. The Paradox Roidmude then disguises himself as Eiji and travels to the past. 

Character History

Eiji murdered by Roidmude 108.

In the future, Eiji took his father's role as Kamen Rider Drive, utilizing a new set of Shift Cars and becoming Kamen Rider Drive Type Next. Before the events of Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future, Eiji gets defeated and killed[1] by Roidmude 108 (later known as Paradox), with his identity copied and belt stolen. He appeared briefly through Shift Special as a hologram, transforming into Drive: Type Next alongside Shinnosuke's Type Speed, both merging to create Drive: Type Special.

Though never having the chance to talk to his father through the film, Paradox as Eiji, stated to Shinnosuke that his mother never used to smile a lot, unless its on a rare occasion, hinting that his mother is Kiriko. This was confirmed in the series finale. The Case of Ghost

Shinnosuke and Kiriko's first child was conceived by the time of the former's return as Kamen Rider Drive to fight with his preceeding and succeeding Kamen Riders against the Next Genome Institute. Following the fall of the Institute, Shinnosuke was congratulated on the news of his expectant baby by his colleagues, to whom he claimed that he did not yet know if it would be a boy or a girl.

Eiji appears to have been born about two years after the events of Drive. [2] He is seen as an infant being cared for by his mother while his uncle was venting to her about recent events. Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Mach

Due to Paradox being destroyed in the past, with all Roidmudes extinct and their creator, Tenjuro Banno destroyed by his son, Go Shijima for good, Eiji will live in a brighter future. Who Will You Entrust the Future to, My Friend?

Type Next (タイプネクスト Taipu Nekusuto) is Drive's futuristic mercedes-based form. Accessed through the Next side of the Shift Next Special Car, this form bears the Type Next Tire (タイプネクストタイヤ Taipu Nekusuto Taiya).

Without a user, Drive can operate autonomously like a remote-controlled drone, accepting orders and executing them. It is noted that in this specific configuration, Drive without a host is weaker to some degree. The body of the autonomous Drive can be recreated with its Drive Driver and Shift Brace intact.

Although originally the default form of the Kamen Rider Drive of the future, this form was later taken by Paradox, who took Eiji's Drive Driver and Shift Brace. In this case the form is referred to as Kamen Rider Dark Drive.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.



  • Drive Driver - Belt-based transformation device
  • Shift Brace - Bracelet-based transformation device
  • Shift Cars - Gives access to Drive's forms and powers, depending on which car is used. They also allow Drive to move normally during a Slowdown.
