Inves

The Inves Game between Ryoji Hase and Kaito Kumon.

The Inves Games (インベスゲーム Inbesu Gēmu) were games popular among the teenagers of Zawame City, involving the use of Inves, which are summoned through the use of Lockseeds. During an Inves Game, both parties summon one or multiple Inves, who then fight each other in a holographic boxing ring. The winner is determined when the Inves of one party defeats the Inves of the other. This game was popular and important for the Beat Rider dance teams, as the Inves Games grew to reflect their standings, as well as settling disputes between them. Most of the time, the winning team would earn a certain stage for them to dance at, while the losers are forbidden to use said stage.

Armored Riders Riders wwere required to intervene in an Inves Game when a high class Inves appears to wreak havoc searching for undamaged A-Classed Lockseeds from its former owner.

When Kouta Kazuraba got his hands on a Sengoku Driver, he used his Armored Rider form to directly fight against the opponent's Inves himself. Since an Armored Rider is far stronger than a summoned Inves, he easily won, therefore dramatically improving Team Gaim's standing compared to the other teams.

But when more Armored Riders appeared, starting with the debut of Baron, the games rules were changed accordingly to allow their presence, focusing the Inves Games more on battles between Armored Riders. This includes a two tier system of games which are called Passes:

However, in reality, the Inves Games were a setup made by Yggdrasill Corporation in order to conduct a test on the Sengoku Drivers and the Lockseeds' hidden power. A sudden outbreak of an Inves virus caused by the sudden appearance of the Inves attacking and scratching victims. Yggdrasil decided to use propaganda to not admit fault in this, manipulating the citizens to blame it on the Beat Riders for causing it, as they were actively seen summoning Inves. This ultimately led to the closing of the Inves Games and the Beat Riders making peace with each other, unanimously deciding the Inves Games need to stop.

Since that time, the Inves Games had not been played, and only had been mentioned a few times in the show.

By the end of the series, the Inves Games have been abandoned altogether due to no more Lockseeds being available after Kouta sent them to The Planet of Helheim and a lack of interest from the Beat Rider Teams to continue the games due to the events of the Inves occupation of Zawame. Instead, the surviving Beat Riders take part in public dancing performances for the citizens of Zawame and tourists as a single group.

Notes

  • The normal Inves Game are similar to battles from the Pokémon franchise, with the one major difference is that the owners of the Inves have no real control over their creature. An Inves will turn on its owner and any other surrounding people as soon as its owner loses contact with the Lockseed.
