|This article is about a/an set of alternate forms in Kamen Rider Ghost.|
Galileo Damashii (ガリレオ魂 Garireo Damashī, lit. "Galileo Soul") is an alternate maroon and gold astronomer-based form of the ghost Riders themed after Galileo Galilei, the 16th century Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician best known for being the first to observe the Rings of Saturn and the four largest moons of Jupiter thanks to him making some improvements to a telescope, which would be later be collectively named the Galilean moons in his honour. However, his championing of heliocentrism had caught the attention of the Roman Inquisition, with the person responsible claiming Galilei was trying to reinterpret the Bible, due to Galilei's belief that the Bible was an authority on faith and morals, not science, and was barred by Pope Paul V through a cardinal to use heliocentrism. Later on, Galilei by sheer accident insulted Pope Urban VIII, who once admired Galilei's work. He was then tried and convicted of heresy, and was sentenced to house arrest for life.
Accessed through the Galileo Ghost Eyecon, this form bears a currently unknown helmet with a currently unknown faceplate.
It is exclusively accessed by all three ghost Riders in Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing.
Village of Heroes
As part of Argos' machination, a reincarnated Galileo Galilei lived among the 100 historical figures in harmony within the Village of Heroes on the Island of Eyecons. Galileo was one of the first eight who were hunted down by Dark Ghost as he collected the Ghost Eyecons.
Gathering all 100 heroic Eyecons, Argos used them as a sacrifice along with Darwin's power of evolution to convert Takeru Tenkuji's dead body into a vessel for the ultimate Eyecon, the Extremer Driver, which he intended to use to fulfil his ultimate agenda of converting all life on both Earth and the Gamma World into ghosts. Ultimately, however, Takeru was able to gain the strength of the 100 heroes along with his friend's spirits, allowing him to defeat Argos seemingly at the cost of his own existence only for the 100 heroes to use their power to restore his soul.
While the initial fifteen heroic Eyecons returned to Takeru's side, the whereabouts of Galileo and the others following the dissolution of the Island of Eyecons is unknown.
