"Our act puts an end to yours!"
―Hajime before battling the Titan Undead[src]

"Try to tell her that...and I'm going to kill you!"
―Hajime's threat to Kazuma questioning his Kamen Rider status, perhaps his infamous quote from the series[src]

Hajime Aikawa (相川 始, Aikawa Hajime) is Kamen Rider Chalice (仮面ライダーカリス, Kamen Raidā Karisu, Masked Rider Chalice), a character from the tokusatsu TV series Kamen Rider Blade.

Contents

History

TV Series

He is a mysterious man who is the Joker Undead, the most fearsome of the Undead as his victory in the Battle Fight would mark the end of all life on Earth. Unsealed around the time the other Undead were released, Joker battled the Mantis Undead and uses the sealed Category Ace of Hearts (Change Mantis) to become the wild card Kamen Rider Chalice. He later seals the Human Undead, who willingly surrendered to him without resistance, using the card to assume human form. The effect of prolonged use of both of these cards to assume their forms resulted in both the Human Undead's compassion for life and the Mantis Undead's fighting spirit collectively suppressing Chalice's natural destructive impulse as the Joker.

However, many of the Royal Club Undead who knew his true identity made attempts to dispose of him. One such attempt by the Giraffa Undead ended with an innocent bystander named Shin Kurihara a.k.a. Amane's father witnessing the battle being mortally wounded by accident in the skirmish. The dying photographer handed him a photograph of his family and Joker decides to protect his family in which he did to atone for his death. The Joker took on the identity of freelance photographer Hajime Aikawa since then. He never had good luck with humans, due to the misunderstandings, misgivings and misfortunes he has from a few he encountered seeing him only as a monster such as a mother & child he saved from the Shell Undead, only for his hands to get slapped away in fear & Jin Ichinose, who ungratefully blames him for destroying his lifelong dream. But despite how less he thinks of humanity, Hajime's time living at Jacaranda Cafe with Kurihara's family warmed him up to humans and eventually, he wished for himself to be human instead of being the Joker.

Though he and Kazuma disliked each other earlier, Hajime's growing humanity eventually warms up to Kazuma, who becomes a dear friend of his, then Garren and later to a limited extent, Mutsuki as well. However, when the Caucasus Undead takes most of his cards, the sealed Mantis Undead among them, it causes Hajime to regress back into the Joker after attempting to resist until Leangle unseals Hajime's cards and use the Undead against him. Even after managing to reseal them all, the Joker failed to regain control and goes on a rampage until he is provided with the Evolution Paradoxa, allowing Hajime to finally have full control of himself. This allows him to even assume Wild Form, which he previously avoided to the best of his abilities, without losing control. This lasted until the Giraffa Undead was sealed, with Hajime losing control and his impulse as Joker bringing forth with the Stone of Sealing creating his army of Darkroachi to eliminate all humans.

In the end, Kazuma is the only one to fight him head-on, with Hajime pleading Kazuma to defeat and seal him. However, Kazuma himself mutates into the Joker through the excessive use of King Form transformation in order to save Hajime and made his victory null, continuing the fight, retracting all unleashed Dark Roaches and prolonging destruction indefinitely. This effectively renders them rivals by instinct and they can never see each other again, or they would be forced to fight to the death for dominance the next time they meet. Moments after the battle, Hajime lives with the Kurihara family and was allowed to keep his Spirit Card to maintain the human disguise.

When history is changed, Hajime becomes one of the brainwashed Riders.

But later, Hajime, alongside Mutsuki, Tachibana, and Kenzaki, aided the riders against Shocker after they despise how Shocker acts and also had themselves freed from brainwashing immediately thanks to Go and Yuto, including a now redeemed Kyoichiro for defeating them earlier, even after Takeshi Hongo alongside Hayato Ichimonji broke free from Rider Robo.

Unfortunately, Chalice was among the Riders whose existence was erased by the Rider Robo. This fate, however, was rendered moot when the Rider Robo was finally destroyed by Shurikenjin TridoronIcon-crosswiki.png, restoring Chalice's place in history.

Personality

Due his origin as the Joker Undead, Hajime was initially hostile towards others, treating only the Kurihara family with some kindness, out of his promise with Amane's father. Viewing humanity as a whole to be weak and useless, Hajime would antagonize the BOARD Riders on several occasions, seeing them as enemies.

From his life with Amane and her mother, as well as Kenzaki's acts of altruism though, Hajime gradually learnt the importance of compassion and empathy, causing him to recognize humanity's strength and worth. This would allow Hajime to become a more sympathetic individual, to the point of protecting complete stranger from any serious dangers.

Despite gaining a new outlook on life, Hajime would occasionally struggle with his nature as an Undead, going berserk on several occasions. Furthermore, his view towards the Undead race remain largely the same, feeling that destiny will force him to defeat every single one of his brethren. As such, Hajime would occasionally doubt himself, fearing that he would ultimately fulfill his role as the Joker Undead.

"What's the strongest is, the human's heart"
―Hajime's proclamation after accepting humanity's value

Upon inadvertently winning the Battle Fight, Hajime almost completely succumbed to his instincts as an Undead, forcing him to begin exterminating all life on Earth. Despite his best attempts to stop himself, Hajime could only barely control his own actions, slowly becoming more feral with time.

Facing Kenzaki as his last obstacle, Hajime pleaded to his friend to end the mindless chaos, not wishing to continue living as a monster. At the end of their battle, Hajime learnt of Kenzaki's plan to mutate into an Undead, feeling immense guilt at what he had unknowingly caused. Kenzaki however, encouraged Hajime that they could choose their own destiny, promising to one day overcome his fate as an Undead. Respecting his friend's decision, Hajime resumed living among humanity, with he and the others silently awaiting for Kenzaki's return.

Powers and Abilities

  • Biological Immortality: As an Undead, Hajime can survive from any physical injuries, no matter how grave they may be.
  • Undead Mimicking: Hajime is able to use a sealed Undead's Rouse Card to obtain said Undead's form and powers.
  • Undead Tracking: As Undeads are attracted to each other by instinct.
  • World Destruction: As a Joker, if he is the only Undead existing in a world, that world will be destroyed.

Ace Form (エースフォーム, Ēsu Fōmu) is the default form of Kamen Rider Chalice assumed by scanning the Change Mantis Rouse Card in the Chalice Rouzer. Unlike the BOARD Riders, Chalice is not a Kamen Rider transformation produced by a Rider System. Chalice is the name of the Mantis Undead, whom Hajime mimics using his ability as the Joker Undead to assume the form of any other Undead. Though Chalice has especially high agility, he is superior to the Ace Forms of any of the BOARD Riders due to using the original Rouzer technology instead of an imitation. Chalice is equipped with the Mantis Undead's weapon, the Chalice Arrow, which can be combined with the Chalice Rouzer to scan Rouse Cards for special attacks instead of transformation.

Kamen Rider Wild Chalice (仮面ライダーワイルドカリス, Kamen Raidā Wairudo Karisu) is Chalice's most powerful form, accessed by scanning the Evolution Paradoxa Rouse Card in the Chalice Rouzer. This fuses Chalice with all of the Hearts Suit Rouse Cards in a similar manner to Blade's King Form. Accordingly, this form grants Chalice enough power to fight evenly with Blade in King Form, a feat that no other Rider is capable of. Outside of its effectiveness in combat, this form allows Hajime to suppress his instincts as the Joker Undead. In addition, Wild Chalice has the power to fuse all of the Hearts Suit Rouse Cards into the singular Wild Card. Wild Chalice is equipped with the Wild Slasher, which he can use individually for melee combat or combine with the Chalice Arrow.

Human Undead

"Hajime Aikawa"

"Spirit!"
―Transformation announcement[src]

Statistics

  • Height: 173 cm.[5]
  • Weight: 59 kg.[5]

When the Joker Undead chose to assume a human identity, he used the Spirit Rouse Card to assume the form of the Human Undead and began using the alias Hajime Aikawa. From then on, Hajime preferred to always be in this transformation outside of battle, only cancelling the transformation and assuming his true form when absolutely forced to.

Appearances: Blade Episodes 1-49, Blade vs. Blade


Dragonfly Undead

Dragonfly Undead

"Float!"
―Transformation announcement[src]

Statistics

  • Height: 208 cm.[6]
  • Weight: 118 kg.[6]

When Hajime's Ace card was taken by the Eagle Undead, he used the Float Dragonfly Rouse Card to assume the form of the Dragonfly Undead. He later gave his Float Dragonfly card to Kenzaki to defeat the Eagle Undead. After doing so, Kenzaki returned the card to Hajime along with the Change Mantis Rouse Card.

Appearances: Blade Episodes 23, 32 (flashback; archive footage only), 36, 38 (flashback only), 41 (flashback only)


Wolf Undead

Wolf Undead

"Fusion!"
―Transformation announcement[src]

Statistics

  • Height: 223 cm.[7]
  • Weight: 119 kg.[7]

When Hajime lost all of his Rouse Cards, Kenzaki gave the Fusion Wolf card to him, which he used to assume the form of the Wolf Undead to battle Mutsuki. Since he harnesses the power of the Category Jack of Hearts, this form can be considered to be equivalent to Jack Form without the Rouse Absorber.

Appearances: Blade Episodes 34, 41 (flashback only)


Joker Undead

Joker Undead

Statistics

  • Height: 219 cm.[8]
  • Weight: 116 kg.[8]

The Joker Undead is the true identity of Hajime Aikawa and the representative of death in the Battle Fight. When the Joker wins the Battle Fight by being the last Undead not sealed, the Stone of Sealing endlessly generates Darkroachi to exterminate all life on Earth. This happens when the Giraffa Undead is sealed, causing him to lose control of his Undead instincts and making him unable to take his human form with the Spirit Human Rouse Card. However, Kenzaki intentionally transformed himself into a second Joker Undead, restoring the Battle Fight and allowing Hajime to continue living as a human. However, if Kenzaki and Hajime ever crossed paths again, their Undead instincts would force them to fight each other.

Chalice Ridewatch (カリスライドウォッチ, Karisu Raidowotchi): Based on Kamen Rider Chalice, this Ridewatch provides access to the ChaliceArmor. It is dated 2004. This Ridewatch was obtained after Zi-OTrinity defeated Another Blade, who had absorbed Kamen Rider Blade and Chalice's powers. Since then, it is in Zi-O's possession. This Ridewatch was one of the five winners of a poll held by Bandai to select Riders to be used in a five-pack of DX Ridewatches.


Relationships

  • Kamen Riders:
    • Kenzaki Kazuma/Blade: Hajime initially viewed Kenzaki as a foe, rebuffing his offer of becoming allies. However, Kenzaki's actions would slowly convince Hajime to trust him as a friend, recognizing his kindness and strength to be genuine. When learning of Kenzaki's decision to mutate into an Undead, Hajime initially became ridden with guilt, understanding that Kenzaki had sacrificed his humanity to stop Hajime's Darkroaches from exterminating all life on Earth. From Kenzaki's words of assurance though, Hajime decided to place faith in his friend, hoping that Kenzaki would one day return home.
    • Tachibana Sakuya/Garren: Like his view towards Kenzaki, Hajime initially saw Tachibana as an enemy, with the feeling being mutual. From Kenzaki's actions though, both Hajime and Tachibana came to trust one another, becoming allies in battle. Even when given the chance to seal Hajime as the Joker Undead, Tachibana would ultimately relent, placing faith in him.
    • Mutsuki Kamijo/Leangle: Due to the Spider Undead's influence toward Mutsuki, he and Hajime were bitter foes at first, both sides antagonizing one another. Once Mutsuki finally regained his former self though, the two would become allies, both fighting alongside one another as Kamen Riders. However, Hajime has occasionally clashed with Mutsuki over their views to the nature of Undeads, with Hajime believing that all Undeads are fated to fight one another, no matter the situation. Yet, Hajime's concern toward Mutsuki never waned, to the point of sparing him in his berserk state as the Joker Undead
  • Others:
    • Amane Kurihara: Hajime initially viewed Amane as somewhat of an object to learn about humanity, though his concern towards her and her mother appeared genuine. From the time he spent with the Kurihara family however, Hajime grew very fond of Amane and her mother, seeing them as his own family.
    • Kotaro Shirai: Shirai had his protective doubts about him after learning from Kenzaki he's an Undead. But in time, he came to accept him when around his sister & Amane.
    • Shiori Hirose: TBA

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Hajime Aikawa is portrayed by Ryōji Morimoto (森本 亮治, Morimoto Ryōji). As Kamen Rider Chalice, his suit actor was Makoto Ito (伊藤 慎, Itō Makoto).

Meme

Mukkorosu.jpg

"Tell me, was it you? You're that Rider from before...and you have the antibody for Amane."
"I'm sorry, what are you talking about?"
"Why do you hide the fact that you're a Rider--No--What is your purpose?"
"I don't know. I really don't know anything at all."
"Well, I'll tell her! I'll tell Amane that you're a Rider, and the number of times we've fought!"
"Try to tell her that...and I'm going to kill you!
"
―The full dialogue of the meme

In episode 6, Hajime's warning to Kenzaki "I will kill you!" (俺は貴様をぶっ殺す!, Ore wa kisama wo bukkorosu!) was popularly spread across the Internet due to his humorous facial expression, labeled as "Mukkorosu" (ムッコロス) by the Japanese community due to Hajime's slurring of the line making it sound like Ore~a, kusamuwomukkorosu! (オレァ、クサムヲムッコロス!). This is also acknowledged as part of the Ondul family meme that was spawned by Kazuma Kenzaki in the original series. Actor Ryoji Morimoto has re-enacted this line during his appearances in public events.[9][10]

Tamotsu Shinohara, one of the designer of Another Riders in Kamen Rider Zi-O, adapted this scene into the face design of Another Blade. [11]

Concept Art

Notes

  • As acknowledged in the hero change battle between Kamen Rider Decade and Gokai Red in Super Hero TaisenIcon-crosswiki.png, the Riders of Kamen Rider Blade share their card motifs with the heroesIcon-crosswiki.png from Shotaro Ishinomori's second and last Sentai series J.A.K.Q. DengekitaiIcon-crosswiki.png. Chalice's Hearts motif would make him Blade's equivalent of Heart QueenIcon-crosswiki.png. His true identity as the Joker would also make him the equivalent of Big OneIcon-crosswiki.png.
  • The name "Chalice" comes from the Minor Arcana version of the Suit of Hearts: the Suit of Cups which symbolize the emotion and love that Hajime acquired over the series.
  • He is the only Rider in Blade that doesn't need a Rouse Absorber to use an upgrade form, as well as the only Rider who does not need AP to use Rouse Cards, although the AP counter and its usage is never a major point in the series.
    • Use of the Chalice Rouzer to access Wild Chalice is similar to how the Rouse Absorber was used to access Jack Form, as both versions of said form cause the augmented armor to display the card used on the chest. The difference was a Category King card was used, instead of a Category Jack.
  • Hajime's name, which means "Beginning", is both ironic and symbolic: It is ironic, because he is supposed to bring about the end of the world, but it is also symbolic since his role as the Joker Undead is to begin a new Battle Fight, once exterminating all mortal life present.
  • Hajime is the second Rider to become the "Final Boss" of a series, after Kamen Rider Odin.
  • Hajime is a unique rider because all of his forms are originally the monsters of the series:
    • Kamen Rider Chalice is a mimic of the Mantis Undead named Chalice.
    • His human form is a mimic of the Human Undead.
    • Joker is his true form, thus making Hajime the first rider who is originally a monsters while all Orphnoch in Kamen Rider 555 are humans who are evolved into monsters by force.
  • Kamen Rider Garren and Kamen Rider Chalice have been through a long-running debate by fans regarding their status as the Secondary Rider of Blade. Ultimately both Toei and Bandai confirm it to be Garren as revealed through further appearances in video games and merchandising which features Garren with the other Secondary Riders.[12] [13] [14]
    • In fact, since the start of show in 2004, Chalice has already been set to be the Tertiary Rider.[15] It is unknown why this debate was sparked although it can be suggested because of Chalice's popularity among certain fans.
    • Part of this misconception may stem from the fact that in both of Blade's opening sequences, Hajime's actor is given second billing right after Kenzaki's actor. In most Kamen Rider openings, second billing is given to either the season's secondary Rider or a supporting character who has a very close relationship with the main Rider, except in episodes where either of those characters don't appear.
    • Although strangely, promotional posters released for Kamen Rider Zi-O: Over Quartzer, displays Chalice among the Secondary Riders and Garren among the Tertiary Riders.[16]
