Hiiro Kagami (鏡 飛彩, Kagami Hiiro) is a surgeon of Seito University Hospital who is considered to be a genius by many in his profession. As a member of CR, he transforms into Kamen Rider Brave (仮面ライダーブレイブ, Kamen Raidā Bureibu) to fight the Bugsters and one day restore his girlfriend Saki Momose.

History

Background

Hiiro Kagami is the son of Haima Kagami, the director of Seito University Hospital. Despite his father's own clumsiness, he was inspired by him to become a doctor. By the age of 19, Hiiro enrolled as a medical student at Seito University, and also had a relationship with Saki Momose. Despite Hiiro's cold personality, Saki deeply cared for him regardless, and often left him alone to prioritize his studies. During the events of Zero Day, Saki had been infected by the Bugster Virus that created Graphite, a Bugster so powerful that not even Taiga Hanaya was able to defeat. By the time Hiiro learned of Saki's condition, she only had enough time to one last request for Hiiro to become the "best doctor in the world", before vanishing into data.

Following the death of his girlfriend, he initially blamed Taiga for her death in an attempt to suppress his guilt as he believed his cold attitude worsened Saki's condition. He also began eating pastries in between operations as a memento to Saki, who often offered him sweets to refuel himself. Hiiro eventually became selected to undergo the compatibility surgery and became CR's second Kamen Rider.

The Genius Surgeon

Hiiro returned from the United States after being called back by his father to handle the new Bugster outbreak. He makes his presence to the pediatrics intern Emu Hojo who had been chosen as Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. Due to their different points of view, the apathetic Hiiro would always find himself at odds with Emu's idealism and care for patients, constantly responding to the latter's presence with "No thank you". Hiiro had been in possession of the Gamer Driver and the Taddle Quest Gashat to become Kamen Rider Brave.

He would eventually reunite with Taiga Hanaya, the man who failed to save Saki and intent of stealing the other Rider Gashats as Kamen Rider Snipe. Sometime after Kiriya Kujo made his presence as Kamen Rider Lazer, Hiiro discovered Graphite was the Bugster that spawned from Saki. Although this got him sidetracked from his role from a doctor, it was through Emu's intervention that allowed him to regain his resolve and add the DoReMiFa Beat Gashat into his arsenal.

Although Hiiro tries to fight alongside the other three Riders against the Bugster threats and infections, he is constantly at odds with them as each had their own viewpoints and ulterior motives. In the final battle against Graphite, Emu used the Drago Knight Hunter Z's power to be equally distributed and joining forces in their final encounter against Graphite. Despite having avenged Saki's death, Hiiro realized that the deed was nothing but meaningless, as he still failed in saving her.

During Christmas Eve, Hiiro and the Kamen Riders finally became aware CEO of Genm Corp., Kuroto Dan, is the true identity of the "Black Ex-Aid", who christens himself as Kamen Rider Genm. Hiiro discovered Kuroto Dan's goal to collect the data of Gashats. Although finally gaining Kiriya's trust, the latter was quickly killed by Kuroto in order to prevent the secret behind Emu's compatibility with the Gamer Driver from being revealed.

The Patient Zero Revelation

Hiiro found himself overseeing Emu after the latter promoted to surgical intern. However, the grief of his Kiriya's death had affected both his performance in the operating table and his prowess in fighting the Bugster. After Hiiro suspended him and confiscated his Gashats, he encounters Genm Level X once more but finds himself witnessing Emu's first transformation using the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat.

While the two slowly grew mutual respect on each other, Hiiro learnt Emu's status as Game Disease patient and initially tried to keep it as a secret to find a way to cure the intern without stressing him. However, he attempts were stopped when Brave and Snipe were attacked by Parado, who had managed to transform into Kamen Rider Para-DX Level 50. Hirro would also lose all his Gashats at the hands of Genm to create "Taddle Legacy".

"I am...the world's best...doctor! I won't let anyone take control of me. The strong resolve to accomplish a mission...is the sign of a doctor entrusted with people's lives!"
―Brave overcoming Taddle Fantasy's dark magic.[src]

Brave Level 50's power took over his mind.

Sometime after Kuroto finally revealed to him about Emu's true nature as Patient Zero and his outburst, Hiiro realized the erratic personality with Emu and figured he is under the influence of "Genius Gamer M". The loss of his Gashats and Emu succumbing to "M" after his virus outburst puts Hiiro at his wit's end until he managed to steal the Gashat Gear Dual β. After suppressing the Gashat's control with his own willpower, this allowed him to obtain Fantasy Gamer Level 50 and his words allow Emu to regain his old self. After recovering the Taddle Quest and Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashats from Genm, he would share Gashat Gear Dual β with Taiga.

Hiiro would learn that the Kamen Riders and the Bugster Virus were intended to be part of Kuroto's ultimate game, Kamen Rider Chronicle and Kuroto managed to unlock Dangerous Zombie's true potential as Level X. After finding Kiriya's research of rewriting the Bugster Virus, Hiiro puts the research to use in conjunction with the blank Gashat that Taiga purchased from Tsukuru Koboshi. This, combined with Emu's natural Bugster Virus brings forth the creation of Maximum Mighty X, and provided the Riders with the advantage to surpass Kuroto's immortality before defeating him for good.

Kamen Rider Chronicle

Hiiro joins with the Kamen Riders as they try to put an end to Kamen Rider Chronicle, now orchestrated by the Bugsters to destroy humanity. Upon hearing the victor of Kamen Rider Chronicle can bring back the deceased victims of the Bugster virus, Hiiro began collecting some Gashatrophies in order to clear the game.

During the course of the events, Hiiro learned Parado was indeed Emu's Bugster and Kuroto Dan has surface under Poppy's supervision. As CR faces off against the high tier Bugsters, both sides find themselves facing against Masamune Dan, Kuroto's father, who reveals himself to be the true mastermind of the events that have unfolded and utilizes the Master Gashat of Chronicle to become Kamen Rider Cronus. Because of his exploitation in the use of Pause and holding the Proto Gashats that held the Game Over victims.

In the next encounter, Cronus whisked Brave away, offering him a place as his personal right-hand man. Hiiro initially refused and transformed to Brave Level 50 in a fruitless attempt to fight Cronus. However, once he was subdued, Brave learned that Cronus was the one who stole the Proto Gashats from CR, which forced him to cooperate in order to save Saki. Masamune would also gift him with the Taddle Legacy Gashat which he can use with a steeled resolve.

The guilt of betraying his teammates and struggling to retrieve Sawa back to normal had took a toll on Hiiro emotionally. He was forced to endure seeing Sawa repeatedly saying her final words, which seemingly taunted him. After Emu uses the Hyper Muteki Gashat to defeat Cronus, Masamune threatened him to kill Emu, much to Hiiro's displeasure. However, Masamune tasked him with killing Parado as he was the key to allow Emu to continue transforming into Ex-Aid. Although he tried to defeat Para-DX using the power of Legacy Gamer Level 100, Brave would find himself interrupted by Taiga's serious injuries from his fight against Graphite.

"You're the cancer of this world... I will eliminate you!"
―Hiiro's vow to defeat Masamune[src]

Although he initially panicked and ran after seeing Taiga in bad condition, he arrived back to the hospital to perform an emergency surgery. Even when Masamune gave him the order to kill Taiga in the operating table, Hiiro refused and ended up saving his life. Angered at this act of defiance, Masamune subsequently deleted Saki's data. In retaliation, Emu and Hiiro transformed and fought Cronus, which ended with Masamune retreating once again. After Emu left at his senior's request, Hiiro finally broke down, weeping bitterly as he accepted the fact that Saki was indeed gone for good.

After Taiga had completely recovered, they began to work together to take down their common enemy Graphite once and for all. For Hiiro, it was for him making up for losing Sawa's life from the beginning. Together, Brave and Snipe defeated Graphite in battle and allowed Nico Saiba to take the final shot. The game continued to progress as the last boss, Gamedeus, had finally approached.

The Gamedeus Pandemic

With Gamedeus and his Bugster Virus pandemic spreading rapidly, Ex-Aid and Para-DX fought against him while Hiiro and Taiga stayed behind to take care of the patients. Although the Doctor Mighty XX Gashat developed by Kiriya and Kuroto managed to weaken him, Masamune barged in at the last minute and absorbed the Bugster into his own body. Brave later fought with Ex-Aid and Snipe to face Gamedeus Cronus.

After Masamune assumed the Super Gamedeus form and mass-produced his Bugster Virus horde, Brave Legacy Gamer engaged the Bugster bosses summoned by Masamune while trying to avoid harming the infected civilians. Soon enough, the infection was cured by Poppy as she sacrificed her own existence to neutralize Super Gamedeus's virus through Doctor Mighty XX. Brave joined Ex-Aid and the other Riders in the fight against Super Gamedeus using the Level 1 state to separate Masamune from Super Gamedeus, which was neutralized by Doctor Mighty XX through the sacrifice of Parado. Masamune, however, still held Cronus's power and, with the access to Emu's Hyper Muteki gone, declared that the Kamen Riders would face a "Bad End."

Hiiro engaged Cronus as Brave Legacy Gamer in one final stand with the Kamen Riders only to be swiftly overwhelmed. Initiating Pause, Cronus, seemingly victorious, was shockingly beaten back by Ex-Aid, who revealed that Parado's sacrifice had weakened him. Reverting to Quest Gamer Level 2, Brave and his fellow Riders ultimately succeeded in finally defeating Cronus, however, they were unable to stop Masamune from destroying the Rider Chronicle Master Gashat with himself in a final act of spite, robbing them of their chance to retrieve the Game Disease victims from the Proto Gashats. Back at CR, Hiiro saw the televised speech given by Emu speech on behalf of the Ministry of Health; the mention of Saki among those who succumbed to the Game Disease visibly upset his father, through Hiiro would choose to say "no thank you" to grief.

Later, Hiiro demonstrated a surgical technique on a cream puff to two new interns at the hospital; he quietly promised to the picture of him and Saki that he would bring her smile back.

"It's game, set for you."
―Brave's proclamation in Famista Quest Gamer Level 3 before a finisher[src]

Hiiro along with Taiga confronts Dr. Pac-Man who had taken Emu away from the Black Ex-Aid, accompanied by the three Kamen Riders that he had summoned. Dr. Pac-Man provides the trio with the Bandai Namco Gashats, with Hiiro receiving the Famista Gashat.

After Ex-Aid recovers the Ganbarizing Gashat, Brave along with Snipe demanded the Gashat for themselves only for all three Riders to be swiftly eluded by "Dr. Pac-Man" who recovered all the Bandai Namco Gashats and the Ganbarizing Gahsat. It is this point where the Kamen Rider realized they are being manipulated by Dr. Pac-Man and the Black Ex-Aid. Ex-Aid was defeated by the Black Ex-Aid's Critical Strike using the seventeen Heisei Rider predecessors, allowing him to defeat all three Riders with a single Rider Kick before taking his leave.

Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Chou Super Hero TaisenIcon-crosswiki.png

"So you are the real me?"
"And you are the game me?
"
―The two Hiiro confront each other[src]

When Poppy Pipopapo was pursued by the KyurangersIcon-crosswiki.png, Hiiro engaged them alongside Emu and Taiga, briefly fighting with Sasori OrangeIcon-crosswiki.png and Ookami BlueIcon-crosswiki.png before the fight was interrupted by the Galaxian ships. Hiiro would come face to face with a doppelgänger of himself from the Game World, who assumed the Legacy Gamer Level 50 to become Kamen Rider True Brave.

Hiiro had a connection with Chou Super Hero Taisen's creator, Eight Kirino, whom he failed to save from his condition. The Game World's Hiiro is a representation of his past mistakes, leading to Hiiro engaged him with his own Fantasy Gamer. Hiiro ultimately bested his other self who then relinquished to him a cache of items which would allow him to conclude the Chou Shocker Taisen in which he would fight with various Kamen Riders and Sentai RangersIcon-crosswiki.png against the Shocker army of the Game World led by Shocker Leader III. He also uses the Galaxian Gashat to assume Galaxian Gamer and even gives an Energy Item to Ex-Aid Maximum Gamer, enlarging him and allowing him to join the Kyurangers in vanquishing the Oogumo Great Leader.

Kamen Rider Brave: ~Let's Survive! Revival of the Beast Rider Squad!~

"My scalpel is justice!"
―Brave before battling Ouja[src]

Hiiro's talent would be recognized by the world in February as he won the Doctor of the Year award, which would be acknowledged as he flew to New York to receive it. On the 20th, where he was faced with a conference, examination and a surgery, he was given the plane ticket by Mizuki and Satsuki, whom he scolded when they admitted that a PET scan still needed to be reexamined, citing that the smallest margin of error could cost a patient their life.

Using the Night of Safari Gashat, Hiiro proceeds to Level 4.

Kamen Rider Ouja, Takeshi Asakura, had mysteriously resurfaced with a Beast Rider Squad rallying with him and launched an assault on Mizuki and Satsuki. After he found Emu beaten, Hiiro recovered the Night of Safari Gashat found in the former's hand and rescues Mizuki as he confronted Asakura himself. Engaging the the serial killer his army of Rider clones, Hiiro used the Gashat to assume Brave Safari Gamer Level 4 and defeat Ouja and the Beast Rider Squad. Afterwards, he seemingly lost the Night of Safari Gashat and resumed treating his nurses as he cancelled his flight to America. While Mizuki and Satsuki thanked him, Hiiro, however, preserved his cold demeanor as he justified his sacrifice by assuring that he would have many other opportunities to be acknowledged in the future.

Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: True Ending

Set after the Kamen Riders defeated Kamen Rider Cronus, a new outbreak of the Bugster virus occurs one rainy day as Kamen Rider Fuma storms Seito University Hospital with his Ninja Gamers. Hiiro is infected and his mind is sent into the Game World where he assumes the role as Madoka Hoshi's father. After Ex-Aid arrived and used the power of Mighty Creator VRX to teleport everyone back to the real world, Hiiro's consciousness was returned to his body.

While confronting Kagenari Nagumo on his actions, the true threat arises when Johnny Makishima reveals himself as the "true last boss" and transforms into Gamedeus Machina. While Hiiro joined with the Kamen Riders to combat the Bugster, he was able to overwhelm all of the six that were present. When Madoka Hoshi's condition was getting worse from her Game Illness, Hiiro joined with Emu and Asuna to operate on her. After the operation ended, Brave joined in the battle against Gamedeus Machina and healed Snipe and Lazer from their injuries using Taddle Legacy. In the end, Ex-Aid Muteki Gamer manages to vanquish Gamedeus Machina and peace has finally returned.

One year later, Hiiro is overseeing the training of new surgeons at the hospital, who are using the Genm VR system to simulate a surgical operation. Director Kagami enters the room to inform his son the Ministry of Health needs a surgeon to operate on a patient. Hiiro smiles and says that there is nothing he cannot cut and heads out.

Doctor Riders vs. Nebula Bugsters.jpg

One week after Kamen Rider Build stole Emu's powers, Nebula Bugsters start to appear due to the effects of Enigma, an inter-dimensional gateway connecting his reality to the Build's world. This alerts the CR, who attempt to solve the issue without Ex-Aid, but they are also rendered powerless due to the effects of Enigma, controlled by Right Kaiser. Kuroto Dan eventually created the Kamen Rider Build Gashats in order to enable to Doctor Riders to continue fight while their Earth and Build's Earth were vast approaching, where it was stopped by the united forces between Ex-Aid & Build.

Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Trilogy: Another Ending

Two years after the Enigma crisis, Hiiro informs Taiga Hanaya about Kuroto Dan's escape from CR's custody.

However, Hiiro rencounters his deceased girlfriend, Saki Momose, who was believed to be lost but restored alongside the Loverica Bugster. While Brave fights Loverica, he learns that if he defeats the Bugster, then Saki's data will be lost once more. This causes him to come into blows with Taiga as he was treating his patient, Luke Kidman, who was infected with Loverica's infection. After Taiga uses Cronus' power to undo Loverica's brainwashing on Saki, Hiiro fought as Brave Legacy Gamer Level 100 to vanquish the Bugster once and for all.

Personality

Hiiro eating desserts to mourn his girlfriend.

While Hiiro is intelligent and capable, he is also cold and arrogant. He firmly opposes personal involvement with his patients, as he believes that personal feelings will only interfere with his performance. Therefore, he initially looks down on Emu, deeming him unworthy to work in CR due to his inexperience and conflicting ideals, although he starts to warm up to the intern over time. He is the only one to question Kuroto's somewhat dubious behavior, showing some level of perceptiveness. Hiiro has a liking for desserts, mainly cakes or pies, which he claims is to increase his energy in between operations. This quirk is later revealed as a form of mourning for his late girlfriend, who always gave him desserts when he studied. While remembering Saki, Hiiro begins to question if revenge was really worth it, showing that he had doubts about vengeance instead of being utterly consumed by it like Taiga was.

Hiiro treats his fighting against Bugsters like an operation. He has a habitual quirk of raising his hands in the position most surgeons use when they are about to operate on a patient, and refers to the Gashacon Sword as his "scalpel". He often also speaks in a mannerism akin to his civilian job after transforming, in the form of his pre-battle catchphrase. He will only cancel his transformation should he deem the situation very risky (primarily when his Rider Gauge is almost depleted). When he encounters someone he doesn't like or doesn't believe that they belong in the situation, he will always respond to their presence by saying "No thank you" (ノーさんきゅうー Nō san kyū).

Due to Hiiro referring to anything that can be used for cutting like a scalpel, his habit with words can sometimes make people misunderstand the meaning of what he is really saying. This was shown when eating at a public cafe, he asked for a scalpel instead of a knife. However, he quickly corrected himself after realizing his mistake.

Upon learning the extent of Kamen Rider Chronicle in regards to reviving those who died of the Bugster infection, including Saki, Hiiro becomes curious about this, to the point of continuing to think about bringing Saki back to him, but this trait was, in turn, his fatal flaw. Masamune Dan takes advantage of this and thus blackmails the surgeon into working for him, which results in him having an internal conflict within himself between his profession as a doctor and his love for Saki. This conflict ended with him committing to his profession and saving people as his first priority, but he still regretted being unable to save Saki, to the point of bitterly crying.

In the end, his second reunion with Saki would be their final one, as Kuroto reveals that that her restoration was merely temporary. When Saki officially passed away from the disease, Hiiro finally gained closure at last, since she asked him to forget about her and focus on helping those that can be saved, unlike her. This newfound resolve comes full-circle in the ending of Genm vs. Lazer, where he manages to restore Kiriya's original body.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Acquired Game Disease Immunity: As a result of the standard compatibility surgery for CR candidates, Hiiro Kagami is immune to the Game Disease and able to transform into a Kamen Rider to fight the Bugsters. Unlike Taiga, Hiiro's initial uses of higher-level Gashats inflicted physical damage and strained his body until he acclimated to the power.

Abilities

  • Gifted Intellect: Hiiro has shown to quickly learn new concepts to make up for a previous failure. This was seen early on in the series when he first had difficulty with the rhythm mechanic of a game but started using said mechanic to full effect by employing CPR rhythm to maintain the pace of his attack.
  • Master Physician: Although Hiiro is only age 24, he is already a extremely skilled surgeon, considered by many to be a genius in his field. Hiiro once worked for a prestigious hospital in the United States, before being called back by his father to handle the new Bugster outbreak. His genius surgical skill allowed him to flawlessly perform extremely complicated surgeries with little to no mechanical assistance. He specializes in heart surgery, but he is also very capable of performing other operations.
  • Expert Swordsman: Hiiro is shown to be capable in using swords and displayed considerable skill in swordsmanship, comparing them to scalpels. This can be seen when he decapitated a Giant Bugster using a generic sword. This also shown as when he sliced a cream puff in episode 6, he didn't bring the knife in contact with the cream puff, but still equally cut into 4 pieces.
  • Skilled Combatant: Hiiro has shown himself to be a skilled fighter, being able to easily take on Bugster viruses as a civilian using medical techniques.

These arrows are able to home in on enemies as well. Brave also has several defensive abilities, such as absorbing projectile attacks and healing himself.

This form is acquired when all four doctor Riders (Ex-Aid, Brave, Snipe, and Lazer) use the virtual Gashats created from the original Proto Drago Knight Hunter Gashat. In this form, Brave is equipped with the Shoulder Drago Armor, Leg Drago Armor and Dragon Blade on Brave's right shoulder, arm and leg. In this form, due to the co-op nature of Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z, the stats of all four Riders are equal.

This form's finisher is the Drago Knight Critical Strike (ドラゴナイトクリティカルストライク, Dorago Naito Kuritikaru Sutoraiku): Brave along with the other doctor Riders deliver consecutive energy attacks to the enemy (In Brave's case, he creates energy slashes with the Dragon Blade which fly towards the enemy), effectively destroying the said enemy.

As stated in Men, Fly High!, Prototype Gashats have unlimited power, but prolonged usage would eventually destroy the user's body.

Relationships

Family

  • Haima Kagami: Despite being a family, Hiiro acts cold toward his father, once scolding him to not talk too much, but Haima always does his best to help him. Haima was willing to risk his life and his title as Director by becoming a Ride-Player and being infected with the Lovelica Game Disease strain in order to clear Kamen Rider Chronicle and revive Saki Momose. When Haima's identity is revealed, Hiiro tells the others to retreat for his father's safety. When Asuna comments that Haima can be serious at times, Hiiro confirms her statement and reveals that his father is his motivation to become a doctor. Judgement Received! Upon hearing Kiriya info about Masamune last order to Hiiro (Which is to sabotage his operation to reclaim Saki), Haima believed that his son will never do things that lowly, which proved by Hiiro himself.
  • Unnamed Veterinarian: Mother[19]

Allies

  • Seito University Hospital
    • Emu Hojo: Although they often partnered during their battle with Bugsters, Hiiro sees Emu as nothing but an Intern (研修医, Kenshūi) and also 'No Thank You', in return Emu didn't really like him either, going so far to say that Hiiro isn't a real doctor twice. Hiiro has slowly warmed up to him, showing concern when he learned that Emu was infected with the Bugster virus and even saying that he "wanted to cure the patient right in front of him" in regards to Emu. This got extended to when Emu wakes up as "Genius Gamer M", Hiiro is greatly angered and grabbed Emu by the coat so he can snap out of his delusions. Later on, he recants what he thought about Emu before, saying he was very harsh on him before. When Emu first know that Hiiro defect CR and become Masamune right-hand man, Emu acknowledged that Hiiro was blackmailed, rather than defecting on his own free will to get Saki back. Emu also believe that Hiiro will return to CR eventually, and when Hiiro ask Emu to fight alongside with him once more, Emu complies. In Kamen Rider Zi-O, Hiiro no longer calls Emu an intern and instead refers to him as a pediatrician.
    • Asuna Karino/Poppy Pipopapo: Hiiro's usually apathetic towards her but in return, she develops some fear toward Hiiro. She even obeys several orders from him such as when he asked Poppy to use her knife to cut an apple pie.
    • Taiga Hanaya: Hiiro holds a grudge against him since Taiga is responsible for letting his late girlfriend die from Graphite's infection. His resentment of Taiga's actions were enough for Hiiro to claim that Taiga was "not qualified to be a Kamen Rider". When Taiga takes the Gashat Gear Dual β from Hiiro after suffering the strain of his own Level 50 form, Taiga reminds Hiiro that he might end up becoming the broken and bitter man he is now if Hiiro is not careful with his pragmatic methods, and also tend his wounds Take Off Against the Direction of the Wind! Later on, Hiiro realized that Taiga only put on the front act as he actually the one who knows everything about becoming the Gamer Rider, especially learning that Taiga hold the regret for unable to save Saki as equal as Hiiro. This led Hiiro to tend Taiga's dying wound and finally rekindle their comradeship and no longer hold grudge to each other.
    • Kiriya Kujo: Kiriya seems to hold no ill feelings toward Hiiro, but Hiiro distrusts him due to his liar nature, right up until Kuroto revealing himself to be Genm, which Kiriya had previously warned about. Later on, some time after Kiriya's death, as Hiiro found the data that Kiriya had left behind, he finally realized that Kiriya's true intentions were to find a way to stop the Bugster threat once and for all. Coincidentally, after Kiriya's revival as a Bugster, both of them now become Masamune Dan underlings.
  • Genm Corp
    • Kuroto Dan: Although somehow dubious from Kuroto's behavior, Hiiro seems to respect him, unaware that Kuroto is actually Genm until Kuroto revealed himself as Genm, whereas both Hiiro and the three other Doctor Riders were too late to notice and stop Kuroto's first plans, such as his manipulation of the Riders and the creation of death data from the Dangerous Zombie Gashat through clearing 10 produced Gashat games from succeeding. Even worst part, ones Emu found out full infos in regarding of his status on how he became a progenitor to Bugster Viruses and the viruses' further origin in Y2K from Kuroto's father Masamune, Hiiro and the detective Heiji Uesugi found out that Kuroto was the one who infected Heiji's son and Saki as the result of one of the Bugsters like Graphite completely manifest the infection progress and the hosts disappeared into nothingness.
  • Saki Momose: Saki deeply loves Hiiro, although Hiiro didn't reciprocate her feelings in order for him to continue studying. Saki's death is the one thing that motivates Hiiro to become a Kamen Rider. Hiiro also said that he'll do anything to see her one more time. This is also the reason why Hiiro decides to betray his fellow teammates in CR, as Masamune Dan promises to revive Saki (which he actually does, albeit without her consciousness), implicating that Hiiro actually really loves her in return. At first, Hiiro was determined to bring her back at all cost. But, after Taiga was beaten up by Graphite and had a severe Hemorrhaging, Hiiro remembered Saki last word and decide to Save Taiga instead of killing him. Saki data then get deleted, and after Hiiro, along with Emu defeat Masamune in Legacy and Muteki Gamer respectively, Hiiro mourn her loss amidst the rain. Period with Tears
  • Mizuki Mizoguchi and Satsuki Ogimachi: Both of them was saved by Hiiro several years ago, and thus they both willingly become Hiiro personal Nurses to aid him to become the best doctor in the world. Hiiro often acts cold to them, but they already understand and put their faith on him. Hiiro also saved them when they both are badly assaulted by Takeshi Asakura, although he refused to admit it. Kamen Rider Brave: ~Let's Survive! Revival of the Beast Rider Squad!~

Enemies

  • Graphite: Hiiro holds a grudge against Graphite, since Graphite was born from his late girlfriend. After receiving Emu's plea, Hiiro holds a determination to finish Graphite off. Graphite in return sees Hiiro as nothing before, but after his defeat, he swore to destroy him using his own hands. Hiiro finally gets to avenge Saki with the help of the other Doctor Riders, but refuses to admit it.
  • Lovelica: Hiiro fought against Lovelica when he was revived by Kuroto. And Saki was under his control.
  • Genm Corp
    • Masamune Dan: Masamune takes interest in Hiiro after revealing his identity as Cronus. He successfully manages to blackmail Hiiro by showing him the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat, which contains the data of Hiiro's late girlfriend, Saki. Later, Hiiro betrays CR and becomes Masamune's right hand man. Hiiro feels uneasy around Masamune even after he revives Saki (albeit without her consciousness). He later becomes agitated by Masamume, as the latter confiscates his Gashat Gear Dual β without explanation. It is then revealed that Masamune used the data of Taddle Fantasy to create the Taddle Legacy Gashat. Upon Masamune first defeat on Ex-Aid Muteki Gamer, Masamune unleashed his Anger to Hiiro and ordered him to Kill Parado in order to make Emu unable to transform, or Saki data'll be permanently erased. Although this make Hiiro fortify his resolve and able him to use Taddle Legacy, this starts to drive a wedge in their partnership. Later, as Taiga was beaten up by Graphite and had severe hemorrhaging, Masamune order him to sabotage Taiga's operation. But, remembering Saki's last words, Hiiro saves him instead. Thus, their partnership ends after Masamune deletes Saki's data. Hiiro then said that Masamune is the world's cancer, and he will end him once and for all. Period with Tears

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Hiiro Kagami is portrayed by Toshiki Seto (瀬戸 利樹, Seto Toshiki). As Kamen Rider Brave, his suit actor is Jiro Uchikawa (内川 仁朗, Uchikawa Jirō) in Level 1 and Jun Watanabe (渡辺 淳, Watanabe Jun) in Level 2.[20]Brave is the last Secondary Rider role for Jun Watanabe in the Heisei Phase 2, Eitoku takes over in the next season following after Ex-Aid.

Etymology

  • Hiiro's given name sounds similar to Hero (ヒーロー, Hīrō), a usual term used for fantasy RPGs.
  • The name "Brave" reflects his associated knight motif and his performance as a surgeon during an operation.
    • Brave in Japanese translation, can additionally mean Yūsha (勇者) which can also mean 'hero'.

Notes

  • His first transformation by having his nurses presenting his Gamer Driver and Taddle Quest Rider Gashat without doing the tasks himself is in itself a reference to surgeons. Surgeons cannot touch anything with their hands before operating on a patient or they otherwise risk giving the patient an infection or some other form of contamination to their bodies during surgery.
  • Brave's Levels refer to the group alignments in RPGs: Heroes (Taddle Quest, Taddle Legacy), Neutral (DoReMiFa Beat, Drago Knight Hunter Z) and Villains (Taddle Fantasy).
    • Additionally, Brave transforming to Level 50 is a nod to certain game protagonists who experience a face-heel turn, shifting into antagonists in later sequel publications or DLC (downloadable content) stories. Brave would have also turned against the heroes during a period of time.
    • Each Gamer form is also based on classes of RPG characters: Quest Gamer is a Knight/Warrior, Fantasy Gamer is a Dark Knight/Dark Magic Classes, Hunter Quest Gamer is a Monster Knight and Legacy Gamer is a Paladin.
  • His Fantasy Gamer form allows him to summon Bugster Viruses, similar to Kuroto Dan's Zombie Gamer form.
  • Ironically, Hiiro's actor, Toshiki Seto, has an aversion towards sweets.
    • It is revealed that Hiiro also avoided desserts 5 years ago. His taste was changed due to Saki's death.
  • Kamen Rider Brave Safari Quest's design bears similarities to the Aztec Jaguar warrior outfit.
