- "Don't be manipulated by the light or the darkness. Carry both of them within yourself...and fight to the very end. The battle with yourself...has no end."
- ―Hikaru's advice to Mutsuki in his subconscious.[src]
Hikaru Jō (城 光 Jō Hikaru) is the human form of the Tiger Undead (タイガーアンデッド Taigā Andeddo), the Category Queen of Clubs Undead.
Kamen Rider Blade
Hikaru first appears attempting to fight the Jellyfish Undead before it flees from the Joker. Later, she and said Undead attempt to continue their duel, only for Mutsuki to shove her aside as he fights and seals Jellyfish. Still wondering why she was around, Mutsuki attempted to attack her, only for Hikaru to knock him down and step on his head, asking what he's fighting for before using a card door to escape from the Rider, trying to find out more of the Joker.
Hikaru later watches the fight between Joker and the Mantis Undead, hiding after Hajime turns back to normal. After walking under a tunnel, Hikaru encountered Mutsuki, who was determined to seal her. As they fought, she explained to him that the Rider System wasn't part of the Battle Fight and the Undead the Riders have sealed should be relased. Mutsuki then used her words against her by unsealing some of Hajime's Undeads to attack her, then having them target after Hajime, causing Hikaru to respond by telling him if he knew how to fight honorably. When the Heart Undeads started attacking, Hikaru watches, believing that a new Battle Fight might brew, only to leave in a scoff after the Joker reseals them.
Upon noticing Kenzaki's King Form being the reason of Hajime reverting back to the Joker, Hikaru transformed and attempted to make Kenzaki undo his transformation, only for Hajime to disappear. When Kenzaki asked, Hikaru told him that she blamed his King Form being near Hajime that caused him to turn back into Joker. Hikaru then questioned Mutsuki of why he brought a blind Amane back to their hideout, declaring her species to be more dominant. When Mutsuki left, Hikaru was left with Amane, telling her to behave or she'll eat her.
Hikaru asked Mutsuki if he knew how to use Kenzaki's Rouse Absorber, to which he replied that he needed a Category Queen sealed to do so. Hikaru sumgly told Mutsuki to seal her, but once Amane left their lair due to sensing Hajime, she followed after the girl. Upon seeing Amane and Hajime reunite, Hikaru noted that the Rider wasn't showing any Undead aura.
After Amane told him he sucked and left with Hajime, Hikaru laughed at Mutsuki's misfortune then mocking him for how the other Riders are more powerful than him. Mutsuki told her not to follow him, with Hikaru commenting that he should make his battles more interesting for her. Hikaru later watched Mutsuki's debacle with Trial B before transitioning to the laboratory of Tennoji's machinations. Tennoji then sicced Trial G on Hikaru, which caused her to notice the Trial's movements being similar to Leangle's before escaping. Hikaru then became exasperated of the rules and how Tennoji's schemes have wormed their way to the Battle Fight before passing out due to the injury on her left arm. Mutsuki then tended to her wound, and after waking up and noticing, Hikaru decided to tell him that he got captured in order for Trial G to develop. She then watches the Riders fight and defeat the Trial before leaving.
Hikaru then had a dream of the Battle Fight, in which had her almost winning, before waking up. After eating meat, Hikaru decided to leave Mutsuki on the grounds that he no longer interests her, especially since she questioned of him being either human or an Undead. The two then attempted to engage in a fight before Nozomi arrived to calm Mutsuki down. As Hikaru left, she noticed Kanai's presence, only for Kenzaki and Tachibana to arrive and deciding to fight her, to her dismay. After beating the two Riders, Hikaru finally catched up to Kanai, leading to a brawl between them. After Hikaru gets beaten by him, Kanai tells her of the lack of the Stone of Sealing and Tennoji's manipulations of the Battle Fight. This caused her to feel distraught, with Mutsuki arriving to her aid. At sunset, Hikaru noticed a light in Mutsuki that occurred when Nozomi consoled him before noticing the rice food he had. Mutsuki offered her one, and after they ate, Hikaru punched him to head to BOARD. As she kept running in, she then encountered the Titan Undead before Tennoji stopped it from fighting her. Tennoji then showed Hikaru that he kept the Stone of Sealing in his possession, causing her to embrace it.
Once learning the Battle Fight is fake, therefore fighting without purpose, and of Tennoji's intent, Hikaru ultimately became enraged. Her anger at this causes her to nearly hurt Nozomi, but she was stopped by Tachibana. She asks Tachibana to borrow his Rouse Absorber when she noticed that Mutsuki is undergoing a brainwashing process by Spider Undead; she later fought Mutsuki but lost after, due to having feelings for him, intentionally impaled herself on the Leangle Rouzer and taking the proper blank to seal herself. In Mutsuki's subconscious, she and Noboru Shima encourage him to continue to fight with both light and darkness.

A mishap caused by the Greeed Ankh unintentionally altered the timeline which enabled Shocker to utilize the Core Medal to create the Shocker Greeed which defeated the Double Riders and seemingly erased the legacy of the Kamen Riders from history.Tiger Undead and other monsters and Kamen Riders come back later, She is seen fighting Amazon.
Hikaru has great pride and fights with dignity, always defending and following the "rules" herself. Her loyalty for the Battle Fight is very deep that when Tennoji confirmed that he staged the modern fight, Hikaru became exasperated over being used by him and that she's been fighting a meaningless battle. For how normally fierce she is, Hikaru gradually developed feelings for Mutsuki, even being snarky with him sometimes; upon noticing Mutsuki's condition and how much Nozomi cared about him, Hikaru was more than willing to get herself sealed in order to save him, even giving wise advice to him.
