|This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Zi-O.|
In 2002, Goro Yura (由良 吾郎 Yura Gorō) is Shuichi Kitaoka's loyal servant who inherited his mantle as Kamen Rider Zolda (仮面ライダーゾルダ Kamen Raidā Zoruda). Seventeen years later, a new Rider Fight begins and Goro returns as Zolda once more.
Rider Time Ryuki
For unknown reasons, Goro was devoted to Takeshi Asakura instead of Kitaoka. On the fourth day of the returning Rider War, he insisted to be with Takeshi after he rescued him from a Mirror Monster as Takeshi was facing Ren in battle. After Takeshi seemingly gave up on beating Goro because he wouldn't let him go, Goro served him food which satisfied Takeshi, making him decide to kill Goro the last. On the fifth day of the Rider War, he worked alongside Takeshi to wipe out the rest of the survivors of the Rider War.

- ―Goro last words before succumbing to his wound[src]
However, Goro's devotion to Asakura was all a ruse in order to carry out his original master Kitaoka's will to end Asakura's malice for good. Although Asakura managed to fatally wound him by his Sword Vent, Goro managed to deal a heavy blow using his Shoot Vent. Goro disintegrated with a smile, thinking that Asakura was finally dead. This makes him the eighth eliminated and the fourth survivng member of the Rider Fight.
After Sougo resets the timeline, his fate is left unknown, but it's presumed that his death was reversed just like the others.

Goro transforms into Kamen Rider Zolda using his Advent Deck and V-Buckle upon forming a contract with Magnugiga. His Visor, the Magna Visor (マグナバイザー Maguna Baizā), is a submachine gun that also functions as his personal weapon. Zolda's punching power and kicking power are equal and of decent strength, but his jump height and running speed are the lowest among all of the 13 Riders. To compensate for his lack of agility, Zolda employs an exclusively long-ranged fighting style.
Zolda possesses two different Shoot Vent Advent Cards. The first arms him with the Giga Cannon (ギガキャノン Giga Kyanon), a pair of cannons derived from Magnugiga's legs which mount on Zolda's back and fire over his shoulders. The second Shoot Vent arms Zolda with the Giga Launcher (ギガランチャー Giga Ranchā), a massive missile launcher derived from Magnugiga's arms combined together. His Guard Vent equips him with the Giga Armor (ギガアーマー Giga Aāmā), a shield derived from Magnugiga's torso which can also be used as a mount for the Giga Launcher.
By using his Final Vent, Zolda can execute his finisher, the End Of World (エンドオブワールド Endo Obu Wārudo), in which Magnugiga appears in front of Zolda and he inserts the Magna Visor into its back. Magnugiga then deploys all of its weapons, which Zolda fires all at once by pulling the trigger of the Magna Visor. The resulting barrage destroys both the target and the surrounding environment.

- In Rider Time: Kamen Rider Ryuki, similar to Ishida and Ishihashi, Goro's "devotion" to Asakura as his fatal flaw, ultimately leading to his demise at the hands of Asakura. Although, Goro manage to deal a heavy blow to Asakura after his betrayal, ultimately become one of two factors in Asakura's own demise.
