Giri Giri Chambara (ギリギリチャンバラ Giri Giri Chanbara, lit. Slashing Swordfight) is a samurai-themed sword fighting video game created by Genm Corp. It also served as the basis for the Giri Giri Chambara Gashat.
Giri Giri Chambara is a samurai sword fighting game where each and every single slash/hit can decide victory or death.
It was envisioned by Kuroto Dan by 2000. The Giri Giri Chambara Gashat was one of the four enhancement Gashats stolen by Graphite and used on a Collabos Bugster. The Gashat was later claimed by Lazer allowing him to access his Level 3 form.
Upon Lazer's death, it was stolen and often used by Genm Level X to access the Gashacon Sparrow. Following Genm's death, it fell to Ex-Aid's possession.

With the Proto Giri Giri Chambara reclaimed, Kuroto Dan arranged for it to be used by a Collabos Bugster as part of his secret ambition to gather the power of the Legend Rider Gashats. After it was disarmed of the Proto Gekitotsu Robots by the Ex-Aid's Drive Gamer Critical Strike, the Bugster switched to Proto Giri Giri Chambara, attacking Dan and landing a non-critical injury. Dan handed the Toukenden Gaim Gashat to Ex-Aid who appropriately assumed the Sengoku warrior-themed Gaim Gamer Level 2 against the katana-wielding Collabos Bugster which he disarmed of the Proto Giri Giri Chambara with his Critical Finish. Stepping in personally as Kamen Rider Genm, Dan recovered the Proto Giri Giri Chambara himself.

Giri Giri Chambara Gashat
In Kamen Rider Genm vs. Lazer, Lazer uses the Gashat in the Buggle Driver II to transform into his Level X form. In this usage, it did not summon the Chambara Gamer.
Proto Giri Giri Chambara Gashat
Like all Proto Gashats (save for Proto Mighty Action X), the Proto Giri Giri Chambara Gashat's color is black and the printed image is colored black and white.
When activated, the Gashat reformats the battlefield into a Game Area. It doesn't seem to spawn any Energy Item containers, but instead summons the Proto Chambara Gamer.
It was briefly taken by Ageha Takeda to become the Giril Bugster. When used by Takeda, it did not summon a Game Area, Energy Item containers, nor the Proto Chambara Gamer. Shortly afterwards, it was given to a Collabos Bugster to generate a form identical to the one that used the finished Gashat, fighting Ex-Aid's Gaim Gamer form before being defeated and the Gashat was retrieved by Kuroto.
- Giri Giri Chambara is based on side-scrolling beat 'em up/hack n' slash games like Golden Axe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade, Bushido Blade and more closely resembling Shingen Samurai-Fighter both thematically and stylistically. Based on its title screen art style, it may also take inspiration from Muramasa: The Demon Blade.
- The Game's title is named after another sword-based hack n' slash game series, a horror-themed hack n' slash series OneeChanbara.
