"It can't be, are you a Kamen Rider?"
―Iron Roidmude questioned when before his true defeat.[src]

Roidmude 029 (ロイミュード029 Roimyūdo Zero Ni Kyū) was one of the first three of the Roidmudes for Drive to fight, as well as being the prime villain behind the attacks in the first episode. Originally a Plain Cobra Type (コブラ型 Kobura-gata) combatman, he then managed to evolve into the Advanced Iron Roidmude (アイアンロイミュード Aian Roimyūdo) before Drive defeated him for good.

Character History

029 first appeared in a skate park as a human, known as Nobuo Masuda, and hospitalized one of the civilians there. He reappeared at the scene of the crime as the Special Unit went down to investigate the scene, and transforms into his true self, then attacks Shinnosuke, prompting the Drive Driver to command the Shift Cars to attack 029 to the point where the Roidmude had to make tracks. Shinnosuke, however, made a composite profile of 029's human form, and began looking for 029, eventually finding and tailing the Roidmude as 029 attacked a gym member out on a jog, making the jogger's skin turn red. Shinnosuke tried to save the guy, only for 029 to activate his Heavy Acceleration, slowing down Shinnosuke until Mr. Belt commanded the Max Flare Shift Car to come to Shinnosuke, allowing him to move at normal speed, though still left him at a physical disadvantage, which worsened when Roidmudes 042 and 088 appeared to assist 029 in stopping Shinnosuke, pummeling the officer around and threw him aside. The two Roidmudes activated their own effect fields, slowing down Shinnosuke heavily to the point where Max Flare's protection wasn't enough.

Annoyed when he saw 042 and 088 being held back by Kiriko who had saved Shinnosuke from an untimely demise, he tossed aside his would-be victim to walk over, witnessing Shinnosuke's transformation into Kamen Rider Drive, and the Rider and Roidmudes clashed, with 029 being the only one of the 3 actually able to hit Drive, making the new Rider go into a warehouse only to be interrupted by Kiriko's assist with the Funky Spike and Midnight Shadow Shift Cars battering 029 enough to help out Drive. 029 was soon pelted by a discarded Type Speed Tire as Drive went Type Speed Flare. Annoyed, 029 tried to attack Drive, only for the strong fiery attacks of Drive to make him fall flat on his back, and was soon jettisoned out of the warehouse thanks to his special attack.

When Drive destroyed 042's body as Type Speed Spike, 029 and 088 went on the attack, only for Drive to go Type Speed Shadow and started flinging energy shurikens at them, with 029 holding 088 in place for a second, which allowed Drive to destroy the Roidmude with a well placed energy shuriken. Now alone, 029 tried to attack Drive, only for him to reassume Type Speed and pelted the Roidmude with the All Tire Attack, leaving the Roidmude wide open to be destroyed by Drive's Speedrop finisher. Despite this, 029's Core manages to escape the battle. Returning to the Roidmude lair very much exhausted, he is given a Viral Core by Heart to form a new body. Why Did My Time Stop?

He continued his ideal body hunting which finally ended up with Shinnosuke and Kiriko locating his victims. He called his new associates, Roidmude 093 and Roidmude 071 to assist him until he was left to fight Drive as the Iron Roidmude. Before his death, Iron asked Drive if he was a Kamen Rider before being destroyed, this time along with his Core. What is a Kamen Rider?

Personality

Not much could be said about 029's personality, but it is the first minor Roidmude to speak, and like all of them, 029 has little love for humanity. He does seem a little intolerant of failure, if him kicking aside 088 when it and 042 were knocked away by a Turbo Smash attack is any clue.

It also has a habit of mixing people's physical traits that he likes, kidnapping people that has the features it prefers, but only if the person is healthy, indicating that this Roidmude is quite choosy and a bit of a perfectionist. If the person is even slightly sickly, 029 would deem that person a waste of time, then put the person into a coma, making the skin red as a result to indicate the person was a failure.

It sneaks into agencies, like the JoyFit Gym (for male targets) and Elegant Talent (LT) Agency (for female targets), to use their computer to search for it's desired parts, similar to what humans would do when they want to assemble their preferred automobile. Although it was not taking the parts physically, it needs the targets in one spot so that it can also assume their identity as it goes around hunting for ideal parts.

Core (029)

The Core is the basic essence or 'soul' of the Roidmude. 029's Core managed to escape a battle with Drive which resulted in the destruction of two of his fellow Roidmudes and his body, retreating to Heart who provided a Cobra Type Viral Core for him. Why Did My Time Stop? Re-emerging soon after, he continued and successfully achieved his evolution into the Iron Roidmude before being permanently destroyed by Drive Type Speed Hunter's JustiSmash.

Notes

TornadoRoidmude

The Tornado Roidmude

  • The Iron Roidmude's costume would be modified to create the Tornado Roidmude.
  • The Iron Roidmude was the first Roidmude to directly refer to Drive as a Kamen Rider. According to Mr. Belt, the Roidmudes identify Kamen Riders as their natural enemies.
  • Despite the name, Iron's motif is not exactly evident due to his bizarre physiology. Iron's name could come from the phrase "iron fist" due to his behavior towards Plain Roidmudes and the fact most of his powers revolve around his arms and fists.
  • His numbering being 029 may be associates with the Japanese word niku, or "muscle", which has the numerical readings for 2 (Ni) and 9 (Ku).
