|This article is about a/an villain in Kamen Rider Blade.|
Hiroshi Tennoji (天王路 博史 Ten'nōji Hiroshi) was the chairman of BOARD who intentionally set up the series of events in the fake Battle Fight and the creation of the Category Ace Kerberos, so that he could have his "dream" come true: this warped dream being of a new world order with himself as its ruler.
Tennoji sealed the Kerberos Undead himself into the Change Kerberos card for his true plan: Using a surgically grafted device based on the Rider System technology to fuse with his creation, becoming Kerberos II (ケルベロスII Keruberosu II) with Tennoji's face on the monster's chest.
It took all 4 Riders to fight Kerberos II, with Blade King Form's Royal Straightflash and Wild Chalice's Wild Cyclone only able to reverse the fusion. However, the Giraffa Undead takes the Change Keroberos for himself in the fight's aftermath for his own agenda. In the end, he was murdered by the Giraffa Undead after he was defeated by the Riders with his dreams shattered.

Hiroshi Tennoji fused with Kerberos with a Card Reader (カードリーダー Kādo Rīdā) transplanted to his left arm. Tennoji's face appears in the center of the body, and the left shoulder of Kerberos is changes. Kerberos II's combat ability has been improved and it can shoot a flame called Divine Wave (ディバインウェーブ Dibain Uēbu) from both heads of both shoulders.
Behind the scenes
Part of Tennoji's surname is a homophone with "Emperor" (天皇 Tennō), the title all of Japan's emperors use, reflecting his desire to rule.
His full name, when translated literally, would mean "the king's path of commanding history", reflecting his goal of becoming a ruler by setting up and controlling the Battle Fight, which was once a monumental moment in history.
