―Isamu proclamation of zeal[src]

Isamu Fuwa (不破 諫 Fuwa Isamu) is a captain of the AI intelligence agency A.I.M.S. who transforms into Kamen Rider Vulcan[1] (仮面ライダーバルカン Kamen Raidā Barukan).

History

Daybreak Accident

IMG 20190923 110130

A young Isamu following the Daybreak Town Accident.

The Daybreak Town Accident occurred while Isamu was in class. Following the explosion (which destroyed Isamu's classroom), the boy was hunted by a swarm of rogue HumaGears. The incident caused Isamu to believe HumaGears were designed to kill humans, leading him to despise both HumaGear and Hiden Intelligence, who he believed covered up the incident.

Joining A.I.M.S.

Due to his hatred for HumaGear, Isamu joined the Artificial Intelligence Military Service (A.I.M.S.), eventually becoming the commanding officer. With his excellent fighting capabilities, he fought against A.I related violence, especially regarding HumaGear. Isamu's recklessness was kept in check only by his colleague Yua Yaiba.

Personality

Gruff and serious in demeanor, Isamu is shaped by his burning hatred for HumaGears. Stemming from his trauma during the Daybreak City Incident, Isamu believes that HumaGears are designed to kill humans, and is obsessed with destroying them. To this end, he will readily dismantle any rampaging HumaGear he finds, often ignoring the orders of his colleagues to do so. His recklessness and short temper are kept in check by his combat experience. He chooses to go by his own rules while engaging Magias, as shown when he forcefully opens his Progrise Keys without Yua's authorization since the latter refuses to give it.

Isamu is openly scornful towards Hiden Intelligence, whom he believes covers up HumaGear attacks. This hostility extends to its current CEO, Aruto Hiden. However, his view towards the HumaGear started to soften a bit after he learned the truth of the incident, thanks to a HumaGear resisting the transformation into a Magia to show the record of the Daybreak Incident. Ironically, while generally antagonistic towards Hiden Intelligence and its staff, he's fond of Aruto's lame jokes (and is the only one who appreciates them) and tries his best not to laugh.

Rider Statistics

  • Rider Height: 197.2 cm[3]
  • Rider Weight: 95.6 kg[3]

Ability Parameters

  • Punching Power: 10.5 t.[3]
  • Kicking Power: 27 t.[3]
  • Maximum Jump Height: 16.2 m.[3]
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m. per 2.9 sec.[3]

Shooting Wolf (シューティングウルフ Shūtingu Urufu) is Vulcan's blue wolf-based primary form, accessed by using the Shooting Wolf Progrise Key in the A.I.M.S. Shot Riser.

Shooting Wolf is a form that is geared towards almost pinpoint accuracy when shooting.

Compared to Zero One's Rising Hopper form, this form has a higher punching power and running speed, but is far outclassed in terms of kicking power and jump height. It makes up for these weaknesses, however, with its focus in long ranged combat with the Shot Riser.

Shooting Wolf is composed of the following parts:

  • Wolf Head (ウルフヘッド Urufu Heddo) - The helmet.
    • Wolf Border (ウルフボーダー Urufu Bōdā) - The blue section on Vulcan's forehead area. It is equipped with an auditory sensor and a radar system, giving Vulcan excellent tracking ability. Additionally, it can improve accuracy of shots by sending obtained information toward the Shooting Leader program located within the Wolf Breast chestplate.
    • Wolf Border Ears (ウルフボーダーイヤー Urufu Bōdā Iyā) - The 'wolf ears' attached to the Wolf Border. They are sophisticated auditory devices that can track up to 26 targets simultaneously within a 5km radius by detecting their sound patterns.
    • Wolf Border Hair (ウルフボーダーヘアー Urufu Bōdā Heā) - The blue and red 'hair' located on the sides. Each 'hair' panel houses a type of reflector antenna that forms a beam. By changing the angles of each hair panel, the antennae patterns can be changed as well, allowing Vulcan to collect a wide range of information on his surroundings.
    • Vulcan Face (バルカンフェイス Barukan Feisu) - The white faceplate. It has a built in respiratory filter that removes impurities from the surrounding atmosphere, allowing Vulcan to breathe (akin to a gas mask). It is extremely strong, and can withstand 200 meters of water pressure.
    • Vulcan Optical Visor (バルカンオプティカルバイザー Barukan Oputikaru Baizā) - The blue compound eyes. It not only allows Vulcan to see at a 160° viewing angle at eight times the visual acuity of normal humans, but also allows him to see it in night vision or shading. Additionally, by synchronising with the A.I.M.S. Shot Riser and the Wolf Breast chestplate's Shooting Leader program, Vulcan can shoot targets precisely, with a margin of error of 0.05mm for targets within a 3 km radius.
    • Base Act Head (ベースアクトヘッド Bēsu Akuto Heddo) - The overall helmet. It is part of the Rise Base Actor. It is composed of Zain Ceramic (ザインセラミック Zain Seramikku) armor and is reinforced with a laminated exterior. It is equipped with many sensors. Furthermore, it is highly adaptable, able to change its abilities according to what Progrise Key is used.
    • Base Act Communicator (ベースアクトコミュニケーター Bēsu Akuto Komyunikētā) - The 'ears'/communication devices. Located to the left and right of the Base Act Head, it integrates wireless communication devices and speakers to communicate with outside forces.
  • Rise Base Actor (ライズベースアクター Raizu Bēsu Akutā) - The bodysuit; more specifically the white/silver areas. It is composed of Zain Ceramic armor and is reinforced with a laminated exterior. It is equipped with many sensors. Furthermore, it is highly adaptable, able to change its abilities according to what Progrise Key is used.
    • Base Act Arm (ベースアクトアーム Bēsu Akuto Āmu) - The left arm. Due to it being a part of the Rise Base Actor, it amplifies the wearer's arm strength, allowing Vulcan to lift up to 4 tons.
    • Base Act Grab (ベースアクトグラブ Bēsu Akuto Gurabu) - The left hand. Punching power is amplified and the Paw Pad Connector (パウパッドコネクタ Pau Paddo Konekuta) located on the palm synchronises with the A.I.M.S. Shot Riser as well as the Vulcan Optical Visor.
    • Base Act Leg (ベースアクトレッグ Bēsu Akuto Reggu) - The left leg. Strengthens kicking power and improves running power.
    • Base Act Boot (ベースアクトブーツ Bēsu Akuto Būtsu) - The left foot. Jumping power is enhanced thanks to the Paw Pad Soles (パウパッドソールによ Pau Paddo Sōru)
  • Wolf Breast (ウルフブレスト Urufu Buresuto) - The chest armor. It is equipped with a shooting control system dubbed Shooting Leader (シューティングリーダー Shūtingu Rīdā) that controls the operation of Vulcan's equipment, including firearms, searching, capturing and tracking, and the launch trajectory of bullets to maximise efficiency. In addition, the Wolf Breast has two programs that switch between each other to suit a situation; Frac Wolf (フラックウルフ Furakku Urufu) for operational behaviour and Alone Wolf (アローンウルフ Arōn Urufu) for infiltration operations.
  • Wolf Shoulder (ウルフショルダー Urufu Shorudā) - The blue right shoulder piece. It is equipped with a Howling Canceller (ハウリングキャンセラー Hauringu Kyanserā) device that counteracts the recoil of a shot, reducing damage to Vulcan.
  • Wolf Arm (ウルフアーム Urufu Āmu) - The right arm. Compared to the Base Act Arm, the Wolf Arm's agility is greatly enhanced.
  • Wolf Gauntlet (ウルフガントレット Urufu Gantoretto) - The right forearm armor. Allows Vulcan more accurate shots by utilising a sighting device located within the Wolf Breast and incorporating the data.
  • Wolf Grab (ウルフグラブ Urufu Gurabu) - The right hand. It is capable of fine finger movements, able to capture and lock on an enemy within 1/30 of a second. In addition, it is covered with a special armor made of carbide steel dubbed ZIA209-03 (「ZIA209-03」) in the shape of a wolf claw, allowing Vulcan to slash enemies at super close range.
  • Wolf Leg (ウルフレッグ Urufu Reggu) - The right leg. It incorporates a gyro stabiliser, allowing Vulcan to remain a stable posture when shooting and/or running.
  • Wolf Greave (ウルフグリーブ Urufu Gurību) - The lower right shin armor. Somehow allows Vulcan more accurate shots by utilising a sighting device located within the Wolf Breast and incorporating the data.
  • Wolf Boot (ウルフブーツ Urufu Būtsu) - The right foot. It is covered with a special armor made of carbide steel dubbed ZIA209-03 in the shape of a wolf claw, which not only increases the power of kicks, but also acts as a type of weight that allows Vulcan to remain stable when shooting.

This form has three finishers:

  • A.I.M.S. ShotRiser finishers:
    • Shooting Blast (シューティングブラースト Shutingu Burasuto): Vulcan shoots 4 blue energy constructs resembling wolf heads that chase the enemy and pin it against a vertical surface before firing a more powerful blast of blue energy that can melt through anything in its path.
    • Shooting Blast Fever (シューティングブラーストフィーバー Shutingu Burasuto Fībā):
  • Attache Calibur finishers:
    • Kaban Strash (カバンストラッシュ Kaban Sutorasshu): Through the use of a Progrise Key, Zero-One can boost his Kaban Strash attack.
      • Shooting Wolf​: Vulcan launches 2 blue energy constructs resembling wolf heads that chase the enemy and pin it against a vertical surface before delivering a powerful slash.

Punching Kong

"ShotRise! Punching Kong! Enough power to annihilate a mountain."
―Transformation announcement[src]

Rider Statistics

  • Rider Height: 192.0 cm[4]
  • Rider Weight: 461.8 kg[4]

Ability Parameters

  • Punching Power: 47.3 t.[4]
  • Kicking Power: 22.9 t.[4]
  • Maximum Jump Height: 8.5 m.[4]
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m. per 3.1 sec.[4]

Punching Kong (パンチングコング Panchingu Kongu) is Vulcan's black and red gorilla-based form, accessed by using the Punching Kong Progrise Key in the A.I.M.S Shot Riser.

This form grants Vulcan an extreme increase in punching power, but a moderate decrease in all other stats. Using Punching Kong also minimizes the Attache Shotgun's recoil.

Punching Kong is composed of the following parts:

  • Kong Head (コングヘッド Kongu Heddo) - The helmet.
    • Kong Border (コングボーダー Kongu Bōdā) - The red section on Vulcan's forehead area. A multi-faceted armor shape with Kong Border Arm and priority for reinforcement for fighting increases the strength of the entire head.
    • Kong Border Ram (コングボーダーラム Kongu Bōdā Ramu) - The forehead. It is a fighting fighting equipment that makes use of the hardness of a special armor made of carbide steel dubbed ZIA209-03 (「ZIA209-03」), and its shape protruding at an acute angle functions as an impact angle and at the same time increases the strength of the forehead.
    • Vulcan Face (バルカンフェイス Barukan Feisu)
    • Vulcan Optical Visor (バルカンオプティカルバイザー Barukan Oputikaru Baizā) - The blue compound eyes. It not only allows Vulcan to see at a 160° viewing angle at eight times the visual acuity of normal humans, but also allows him to see it in night vision or shading.
    • Base Act Head (ベースアクトヘッド Bēsu Akuto Heddo)
    • Base Act Communicator (ベースアクトコミュニケーター Bēsu Akuto Komyunikētā)
  • Rise Base Actor (ライズベースアクター Raizu Bēsu Akutā)
    • Base Act Arm (ベースアクトアーム Bēsu Akuto Āmu)
    • Base Act Grab (ベースアクトグラブ Bēsu Akuto Gurabu)
    • Base Act Leg (ベースアクトレッグ Bēsu Akuto Reggu)
    • Base Act Boot (ベースアクトブーツ Bēsu Akuto Būtsu)
  • Kong Breast (コングブレスト Kongu Buresuto) - The chest armor. The surface layer of heavy armor that can withstand direct hits from tank guns is space armor, with space between the armor. Resonating the front of the armor by drumming generates acoustic shock waves that prevent physical attacks.
  • Kong Shoulder (コングショルダー Kongu Shorudā) - Six superconducting servo units and linear cylinders built in to the left and right produce ultra-high torque. This gives the wearer super power that can easily handle the heavy-weight Knuckle Demolishion (ナックルデモリション Nakkuru Demorishon).
  • Kong Arm Guard (コングアームガード Kongu Amu Gado) - The upper armor. In addition to protecting the upper arm with heavy armor, it has the role of transmitting super power by connecting the shoulder and forearm.
  • Knuckle Demolition (ナックルデモリション Nakkuru Demorishon) - The gauntlets. It is good at physical destruction by blow using the hardness of carbide steel ZIA209-03 (「ZIA209-03」) and the mass of 150kg on one side. In addition, it can be ejected as a kinetic energy bullet by injecting charged energy, and not only close combat but also the middle range is used as a range, and by using it as a propulsion device, the mobility reduced by weight is compensated.

This form has four finishers:

  • A.I.M.S Shot Riser finisher:
    • Punching Blast (パンチングブラースト Panchingu Burasuto): Vulcan charges his gauntlets with scarlet energy before firing them off to punch the enemy into the air.
    • Punching Blast Fever (パンチングブラーストフィーバー Panchingu Burasuto Fībā): Vulcan punches the ground to create an unstable terrain before charging his gauntlets with scarlet energy and running up to the enemy for a punch.
  • Attache Shotgun finishers:
    • Kaban Shot (カバンショット Kaban Shotto): Through the use of a Progrise Key, Vulcan can boost his Kaban Shot attack.
      • Shooting Wolf​: Vulcan shoots a blue energy construct resembling a wolf's head.
      • Punching Kong: Vulcan shoots a scarlet energy construct resembling the Knuckle Demolition.

Relationships

Allies:

  • Aruto Hiden/Kamen Rider Zero-One: Both Isamu and Aruto have an opposite view regarding HumaGears. While Aruto believes HumaGear as the dream of humanity, Isamu views HumaGear as the enemy of humanity, whether its good or bad. Initially, Isamu didn't know about Aruto alter ego as Zero-One and usually calls him Grasshopper Jerk (バッタ野郎 Batta Yarou), but the young CEO would eventually reveal his identity by transforming into Zero One in front of his eyes. Despite their relationship, he's fond of Aruto's lame jokes and is the only one who appreciates them, but he tries to keep this to himself.
  • Yua Yaiba/Kamen Rider Valkyrie: Despite being assigned in the same team, Isamu and Yua don't get along and often argue, mostly due Isamu's rebellious and insubordinate behavior, which causes her to deny him authorization to use the A.I.M.S. Shot Riser & Shooting Wolf Progrise Key.
  • Izu: The hatred that Isamu feels towards the HumaGears after the Daybreak Town Accident seemingly extended to Izu.
  • Jun Fukuzoe: TBD

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Isamu Fuwa is portrayed by Ryutaro Okada (岡田 龍太郎 Okada Ryutaro).

Etymology

  • Kamen Rider Vulcan's name comes from the M61 Vulcan, a gatling gun employed by the military. Vulcan is also the Roman name for the Greek god Hephaestus.

Conception


Notes

  • Isamu transforms with the ShotRiser in its Gun Mode and opens his Progrise Key by force prior to inserting it, whereas Yua transforms with it in its Belt Mode and opens her Progrise Key after inserting it.
  • While not the first Rider with a wolf/werewolf motif, Kamen Rider Vulcan is the first to have it as the motif of his main form.
    • He is also the first Secondary Rider of the Reiwa era where his upgrade form is accessed in a similar matter to the main rider, something that was used in both phases of the previous era.
  • Isamu's motivation to eradicate all HumaGears, be they good or bad, is similar to Go Shijima's prejudice against the Roidmudes.
    • Him being present in a tragic incident as a child along with the main protagonist is similar to Hiryu Kakogawa being there along with Sougo Tokiwa from the previous season. Unlike Hiryu though, Isamu is not openly hostile towards Aruto.
  • Isamu is the first Secondary Rider to be injured after using his Rider Shooting during the form's first debut.
  • Isamu often strikes the bullet with his left hand when transforming. A cross (straight punch) for Shooting Wolf and a backhand for Punching Kong.
  • Isamu's hot-blooded and hostile personality are also similar to Keiichiro AsakaIcon-crosswiki (Patren 1gou) from Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS. Keisatsu Sentai PatrangerIcon-crosswiki
    • Both Isamu and Keiichiro are also law enforcement officers.
  • Isamu’s surname, Fuwa, is also the name of the fairy Fuwa from Star☆Twinkle Pretty Cure, which airs alongside Zero-One. This fact was implicitly acknowledged by Isamu’s actor on one of the song cover videos on his YouTube channel.
    • This is due to his surname being a pun of the verb "fluffy" (ふわ) in an alternate translation of Japanese, also reference to Fuwa having a cotton-like fur on her whole body in her 1st form.
