The Gigazelle (ギガゼール, Gigazēru, 3, 4 & 39-44) race are a group of Kamen Rider Imperer's Contract Monsters. The Gigazelles were originally rogue Mirror Monsters that moved in groups until they became Kamen Rider Imperer's Contracts. They were able to summon other antelope Mirror Monsters via electric signals and could be equipped with a staff with twin drills.

Wild Gigazelles

They are fast enough to flee before a Rider can sense their presence, causing confusion between Ren and Shinji over how many were present. A gold Gigazelle tried to attack a schoolgirl, but was intercepted and destroyed by Ryuki's Dragclaw Fire. School Ghost Story Afterwards, its pack members, a green Gigazelle and a Megazelle, attacked the same school; the Gigazelle was destroyed by Ryuki's Dragon Rider Kick. School Ghost Story 2

A third quickly appeared and was destroyed by Zolda's Gigalauncher without any trouble.

A stray Gigazelle was photographed by Shimada as it tried attacking her, giving the ORE Journal proof of monsters inside mirrors. A Dangerous Sign Memories of an Older Brother and Younger Sister

As a prelude to Imperer's arrival, a dozen Gigazelles and other Zelles were on the attack until they were all wiped out by Ryuki Survive's Dragon Firestorm. Memories of an Older Brother and Younger Sister Many more would accompany Imperer following his debut, especially during his Final Vent attack.

A Gigazelle appeared in Shinji's dream during the Hyper Video special. It was destroyed by Ouja's Veno Crash.

Contracted Gigazelle

Imperer's specific Gigazelle he is Contracted with is rarely seen alone, usually having a swarm of other Gigazelle, Magazelle, and Omegazelle around it, which cooperate to support the Rider. It is likely the Gigazelle which dragged Yui into the Mirror World Room 401, and the one Gigazelle among the smaller crowd of one of each Zelle seen on several occasions, such as when Imperer tried to throw his Deck away.

A Gigazelle's destruction at the hands of Ryuki was shown in a recollection by Amadum as he explained the nature of his world as a paradise for monsters destroyed by the Kamen Riders. The Kamen Rider Rings

Video Game appearances

Kamen Rider Ryuki video game

Gigazelle is one of four Contract Monsters who appear as a playable character in the Kamen Rider Ryuki video game.

All Kamen Rider: Rider Generation


Gigazelles appear as regular enemies in the video game All Kamen Rider: Rider Generation.


  • Drive Divider (ドライブディバイダー, Doraibu Dibaidā): Imperer's Final Vent; Gigazelle and many other Zelle monsters stampede past and hit the target before Imperer jumps up and grabs their head, kneeing them in the jaw.


Through the use of certain Advent Cards, parts of Gigazelle's body can be used by Imperer as weapons or other equipment.

  • Gazellestab (ガゼルスタッブ, Gazeru Sutabbu): An arm-mounted pair of drills derived from Gigazelle's horns and forehead. It is summoned by Imperer's Spin Vent card.

Behind the Scenes

Concept Art

Gigazelle concept art

Gigazelle was designed by Tamotsu Shinohara (篠原 保, Shinohara Tamotsu).


  • In truth, only a purple Gigazelle suit exists, the apparent presence of other colored varieties being the result of off-camera colored spotlights shining on the suit. This can be clearly seen when the "gold" Gigazelle (episode 3) holds its weapon up and its gold face suddenly becomes purple, as the weapon is blocking the yellow light.
    • Additionally, there is likely only one suit, the rest in any crowd either being filmed in different takes or CGI.
