The Ghost Gadgets (ゴーストガジェット Gōsuto Gajetto) are animal-like gadgets used by Kamen Rider Ghost and Kamen Rider Specter that can transform from Gadget Mode (ガジェットモード Gajetto Mōdo) to Animal Mode (アニマルモード Animaru Mōdo).
List of Ghost Gadgets
The Condor Denwor (コンドルデンワー Kondoru Denwā, kana elongation of "Telephone" (電話 Denwa)) is the first Ghost Gadget that aids Ghost in fighting the Ganma. This particular Ghost Gadget can switch between Gadget Mode, which can be used as a normal dial telephone by using the Receiver Head (レシーバーヘッド Reshībā Heddo) and Unknown Dial (アンノウンダイヤル An'nōn Diyaru) in conjunction with each other , and Animal Mode, which can track down the locations of anyone who had called the Condor Denwor from its Gadget Mode. When Ghost assumes Robin Damashii, the Condor Denwor combines with his Gan Gun Saber to form the latter's Arrow Mode (アローモード Arō Mōdo), where its Convergence Neck (コンバージェンスネック Konbājensu Nekku) and Receiver Head move to between its Vulture Leg (ヴァルチャーレッグ Vuaruchā Reggu) feet, enlarging its Bow Grip Wings (ボウグリップウィング Bō Gurippu Wingu) and the rest of its body greatly in size to match the Gan Gun Saber's size.
The Condor Denwor was evidently created as a compliment for Robin Damashii to counter the Gammaizer Arrow.
The Condor Denwor is composed of the following parts:
- Receiver Head (レシーバーヘッド Reshībā Heddo) - Condor Denwar's 'head' that doubles as an earpiece. It has searching and detection functions, and also incorporates an aiming correction device which stabilises shooting angle when in Gan Gun Saber Arrow Mode.
- Vulture Leg (ヴァルチャーレッグ Vuaruchā Reggu) - The legs during Animal Mode. In addition to attacking enemies with the attached Vulture Claws (ヴァルチャークロー Vuaruchā Kurō) made by Quantum Solid (the material making up Ghost's armor}, it can grab and carry objects up to 40kg(like the Gan Gun Saber).
- Bow Grip Wings (ボウグリップウィング Bō Gurippu Wingu) - The Condor Denwor's wings. It allows the Condor Denwor to fly by capturing the flow of air currents and energy before proceeding to amplify and deflect it. It's also possible to convert air currents into energy to strengthen the attack of Gan Gun Saber's Arrow Mode.
- Unknown Dial (アンノウンダイヤル An'nōn Diyaru) - The Condor Denwor's telephone dial. It can read the user's consciousness and connect it to the person the user desires to communicate with, thus negating the use of wires or broadband to talk to someone. Reverse detection, communication-interception and calling through space-time is possible.
- Convergence Neck (コンバージェンスネック Konbājensu Nekku) - The Condor Denwor's neck which forms the phone in Gadget Mode and the 'arrow' in Arrow Mode. It contains a built-in energy compression device, allowing it to generate a high-speed arrow of light with exceedingly great penetration power in Arrow Mode.
The Bat Clock (バットクロック Batto Kurokku) is the second Ghost Gadget that aids Ghost in fighting the Gamma. This particular Ghost Gadget can switch between Gadget Mode, which can be used like a normal alarm clock that can be silenced with a smack onto its top , and Animal Mode that can unleash an ultrasonic screech out of the Nocturnal Speakers (ノクターナルスピーカー Nokutānaru Supīkā) as an attack. When Ghost assumes Billy the Kid Damashii, the Bat Clock can either assume its third configuration Gun Mode (ガンモード Gan Mōdo), or combine with his Gan Gun Saber to form the latter's Rifle Mode (ライフルモード Raifuru Mōdo) , extending out the Bat Clock's hidden High Blast Barrels (ハイブラストバレル Hai Burasuto Bareru) when done so.
The Bat Clock was evidently created as a compliment for Billy The Kid Damashii to counter the Gammaizer Rifle.
The Bat Clock is composed of the following parts:
- Night Seek Head (ナイトシークヘッド Naito Shīku Heddo) - The bat face of the Bat Clock, it is a powerful sensor unit that can track biological signals, record visual and audio data, and send information to Riders.
- Nocturnal Speakers (ノクターナルスピーカー Nokutānaru Supīkā) - An ultrasonic set of speakers built into the Bat Clock, it is the two circles located between the sides of the silver 'bat body' painted on the Bat Clock. The Nocturnal Seekers allow the Bat Clock to search with ultrasonic waves and attack with specialised sound signals, which can range from paralysis to destruction of internal functions.
- Air Slicer Wing (エアスライサーウィング Ea Suraisā U~ingu) - The wings of the Bat Clock. Due to its shape, it can adjust propulsion power and speed by adjusting the rate of flapping accordingly. Additionally, the Air Slicer Wing can generate and deploy energy blades to cover the wings, allowing the Bat Clock to shred enemies.
- Incident Viewer (インシデントビューアー Inshidento Byūā) - A projector installed in the the Bat Clock's clock face. The video projector to display information recorded by the Night Seek Head. The video displayed will depend on what time the hands are matched to. For example, if the hands are located at 3:00, the video will show what happened at 3:00.
- Sonic Aim Grip (ソニックエイムグリップ Sonikku Eimu Gurippu) - The handle of the Bat Clock, it is what the Rider will use to hold it during gun mode. An energy bullet generating device is located inside of the grip, and is capable of generating a ginormous amount of energy bullets at high speed. Also, with the aid of the ultrasonic device built into the Bat Clock, it can sense targets even under poor visibility, and will automatically adjust the aiming trajectory accordingly.
- High Blast Barrel (ハイブラストバレル Hai Burasuto Bareru) - The two barrels of the Bat Clock that shoot out energy bullets. They are composed of the extremely durable Quantum Solid (クァンタムソリッド Ku~antamu Soriddo) metal alloy. When the energy bullets pass through the High Blast Barrels, it penetrates an energy compression shield called High Blast Shell (ハイブラストシェル Hai Burasuto Sheru), which increases the speed and power of the bullet, allowing rapid fire.
The Kumo Lantern (クモランタン Kumo Rantan, lit. "Spider Lantern") is the third Ghost Gadget that aids Ghost in fighting the Gamma. This particular Ghost Gadget can switch between Gadget Mode, which can release lights to make Gammas visible as alternatives to Shiranui, and Animal Mode. When Ghost assumes Benkei Damashii, the Kumo Lantern combines with his Gan Gun Saber to form the latter's Hammer Mode (ハンマーモード Hanmā Mōdo).
The Kumo Lantern was evidently created as a compliment for Benkei Damashii to counter the Gammaizer Hammer.
The Kumo Lantern is composed of the following parts:
- Takers Head (テイカーズヘッド Teikāzu Heddo) - Kumo Lantern's head in Gadget Mode. It incorporates a highly sensitive sensor, using special light not visible to the human eye to conduct investigations, and can perceive hidden objects, internal structure, etc. Additionally, it can shoot out Absorb Wire (アブゾーブワイヤー Abuzōbu Waiyā) generated in its abdomen from its mouth.
- Cobweb Generator (コブウェブジェネレーター Kobuu~ebu Jenerētā) - The Kumo Lantern's abdomen in Animal Mode as well as the top handle part in Gadget Mode. It generates the Absorb Wire the Kumo Lantern can shoot out which has the ability to absorb the energy of the contacted object, allowing it to drain energy enemies.
- Raid Eight Legs (レイドエイトレッグ Reido Eito Reggu) - Kumo Lantern's legs. They have a flexible inner frame which can extend and contract like springs, allowing for high jumping movements. Additionally, the Quantum Solid Pierce Claws (ピアサークロー Piasā Kurō) on the tips are extremely sharp, allowing them to pierce enemy armor in a single blow.
- Depth Flasher (デプスフラッシャー Depusu Furasshā) - A light emitting device inside the Kumo Lantern. By burning internal energy, it shines like a regular light, allowing users to view dark places. The light has the ability to change the wavelengths of surrounding light to reveal invisible existences (i.e. Gammas) to humans.
- Sledge Impactor (スレッジインパクター Surejji Inpakutā) - A shockwave generator built into the Kumo Lantern's middle body. When attached in Hammer Mode, it generates an energy shield to protect the Kumo Lantern's internal workings while strengthening and increasing striking power at the same time. Additionally, it is possible to crush a shockwave on an object on contact, obliterating enemy armor.
The Cobra Keitai (コブラケータイ Kobura Kētai, kana elongation/deviation of "Cell Phone" (携帯 Keitai)) is the sole Ghost Gadget that aids Specter in fighting the Gamma and Ghost. This particular Ghost Gadget can switch between Gadget Mode and Animal Mode. When Specter assumes Tutankhamun Damashii, the Cobra Keitai combines with his Gan Gun Hand to form the latter's Sickle Mode (鎌モード Kama Mōdo) by transforming partially into its Keitai Mode, with half of its Master Mobiler (マスターモバイラー Masutā Mobairā) opening up in half to form the Scythe Edge Tail (サイスエッジテイル Saisu Ejji Teiru), with the back of the Serpent Display (サーペントディスプレイ Sāpento Disupurei) connecting to the Gan Gun Hand.
- The DX Cobra Keitai toy is able to combine with the Gan Gun Saber to form an unofficial Scythe Mode, complete with a different Omega Drive announcement.
The Cobra Keitai was evidently created as a compliment for Tutankhamun Damashii to counter the Gammaizer Time.
The Cobra Keitai is composed of the following parts:
- Venomous Fang (ヴェナマスファング Vuenamasu Fangu) - Cobra Keitai's fangs in Animal Mode. It contains a powerful neurotoxin which decomposes an enemy's body from inside. Furthermore, if the Cobra Keitai bites a machine, the Venomous Fang can inject a computer virus into it.
- Observe Eye (オブザーブアイ Obuzābu Ai) - Cobra Keitai's eyes. They can track biological reactions, record images and sounds, and send it to Ghost Gadget users.
- Sneaking Neck (スニーキングネック Sunīkingu Nekku) - Cobra Keitai's neck in Animal Mode. It has a built-in electromagnetic stealth function, allowing it to observe targets and capture data without anybody noticing.
- Serpent Display (サーペントディスプレイ Sāpento Disupurei) - Cobra Keitai's screen in Gadget Mode. It has the ability to automatically correct recorded video footage, allowing it to restore a whole image and scene from fragments. It can also enlarge an image and project it holographically.
- Master Mobiler (マスターモバイラー Masutā Mobairā) - The Cobra Keitai's keypad. In addition to calling and e-mail, it has the ability to reverse detect calls, intercept transmissions, jamming, hack surrounding devices, etc. Various operations are performed on the Scale Dial (スケイルダイヤル Sukeiru Daiyaru) buttons.
- Scythe Edge Tail (サイスエッジテイル Saisu Ejji Teiru) - The Cobra Keitai's tail, it forms the scythe in Sickle Mode. It is formed entirely of Quantum Solid (which makes up Specter's armor) and its surface is coated with special particles that can decompose any substance it contacts, allowing it to cut almost anything on Earth. By concentrating the Gan Gun Hand's energy onto the Scythe Edge Tail, the user can cut through surrounding space.
- Barring Condor, the motifs of the three Ghost Gadgets match those of their initial usage as Shocker monsters in the original series. These motifs were also popularized by the three types of Plain Roidmudes from Ghost's immediate predecessor series.
- The Ghost Gadgets share the same naming scheme as the Memory Gadgets from Kamen Rider W.
- In addition, both the Memory Gadgets and Ghost Gadgets share two animal bases (Bat and Spider).
- The Memory Gadgets and Ghost Gadgets can also be attached to Double, Ghost, and Specter's standard weaponry to boost their performance in battle.
- A notable difference between the two devices is that while the Memory Gadgets are accessories that affect the nature of the finisher, the Ghost Gadgets combination with the Gan Gun Saber changes the overall appearance of the weapon and are exclusive to a form.
- Out of all of Ghost's Ghost Gadgets, the Kumo Lantern is the only one that is compatible with the DX Gan Gun Hand. However, it doesn't produce a new Omega Drive attack announcement, nor are there new weapon sounds.
- The Bat Clock is the only Ghost Gadget that can assume a weapon mode without having to combine with the Gan Gun Saber.
- Due to Takeru Tenkuji having to adjust the mouthpiece in order to actually use the Condor Denwor (in phone mode) properly, it is suggested that the TV prop is actually the toy version of the said device. (the actual toy being only 9.5 inches, way smaller than a normal rotary phone.)
- In fact, the same thing could probably be said for a lot of props used by the Kamen Riders and Super Sentai rangers, albeit with CGI effects added. Examples of such props include, but are not limited to:
- Nin Shurikens (used by the Ninningers)
- VS Vehicles (when not enlarged) (used by the Lupinrangers and Patrangers)
- Ginga Brace (Used by the Gingamen)
- Mobilates (Used by the Gokaigers)
- Ranger Keys
- Adventure Cellphone Accellular
- Gaia Memories
- Double Driver
- Basshaa Magnum
- Drago Timer (in one episode, if one listens carefully enough, they can hear a wind-up mechanism)
- Wizard Rings(and by extent, the holder for them)
- Build Driver
- Transteam Gun (and by extent, its more powerful counterpart, the Nebulasteam Gun.)
- Sengoku Driver
- Genesis Driver
- Ghost Driver
- Mirai Driver (and by extent, all 5 of its variations)
- Gamer Driver
- Rider Gashats
- Hiden Zero-One Driver
- Wonder Ride Books
- Seiken Swordriver (albeit with a slightly longer version of the sword when not stored in the driver)
