"Humagears hurt humans... They are the enemy of humanity! I will crush them all!"
―Isamu expressing his initial hatred of Humagears[src]

"When I crush my enemies to scrap, it's by my own rules! That's who Kamen Rider Vulcan is!"
―Isamu's reason for fighting.[src]

"Yaiba, what is it that you live for? You work for ZAIA like a dog, but what's that going to get you?!"
―Isamu challenges Yua about why she fights for ZAIA[src]

"Listen up, ZAIA! I'm a changed man! Those old memories can go to hell for all I care! I don't want anger anymore! I have a dream now. And that... is to be a Kamen Rider of your creation!"
―Isamu resolving his dream as a Kamen Rider[src]

Isamu Fuwa (不破 諫, Fuwa Isamu) is the 27-year-old former captain of A.I.M.S. who fights as Kamen Rider Vulcan (仮面ライダーバルカン, Kamen Raidā Barukan) against corrupted Humagears. After the Workplace Competition, he leaves A.I.M.S. and joined HIDEN Manufacturing as a security guard to help Aruto Hiden protect the Humagears from ZAIA Enterprise Japan and the world from Ark-Zero. After the Ark's defeat, Isamu now protects the city independently before the final battle against Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai.

Biography

Early Life

Weighing 3,140 grams at birth, Isamu Fuwa was born on February 8, 1992 in South Asakusa, Tokyo, to his parents. Sometime later, he had a younger brother.

Fuwa's "memory" of the Daybreak Town Accident

According to Gai Amatsu, Fuwa has false memories implanted into him, via the A.I. chip in his brain. The most memorable amongst them was that at the age of 15, his family had passed away; he himself was a victim of the Daybreak Town Accident, where a platoon of rogue Humagears attacked his middle school, killing everyone except himself. Due to this, Fuwa spent his entire time since joining A.I.M.S. believing this memory, developing the initial hostile view he had towards Humagears and Hiden Intelligence, who he believed had covered up the incident.

By the time Fuwa turned 27, he joined Artificial Intelligence Military Service (A.I.M.S.) and became its commanding officer. However, since his recklessness was a problem, Yua Yaiba was assigned to his team to not only provide technical assistance, but to also keep his fiery ego in check. At some point after joining A.I.M.S., he had an A.I. chip implanted into his brain in order to properly use the Shotriser, though Fuwa had no knowledge of this. He would also be given false memories of the attack to his school by a platoon of rogue Humagears, all part of Gai's machinations for Fuwa to bear hostility against Humagears.

The MetsubouJinrai Mystery

When the Humagears had gone berserk in the local amusement park, A.I.M.S. was deployed to subdue the Trilobite Magia. As more began to overwhelm the soldiers, Fuwa went back into the van and broke the glass containing the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. Yaiba warned him that he isn't authorized to use the weapon, only to shoot at the Trilobite Magia behind her. After the threat was contained, Fuwa remarked that the Humagear uprising is repeating once more.

Fuwa and Yaiba visited Hiden Intelligence HQ, where they meet with the new company president, Aruto Hiden. Fuwa accused Hiden Intelligence at covering Humagears' rampage at the amusement park, but Aruto tries to deny all accusation. Although Aruto tries to do his signature jokes, Fuwa was seemingly shaken with anger. Their conversation is cut short when the Kuehne Magia was wrecking havoc inside the building. He tries to transform with the Shooting Wolf Progrisekey but fails due to him being unauthorized. When he meets with Aruto again, Fuwa revealed his memories in Daybreak Town, how he was traumatized of being chased by an army of Humagears. When Fuwa had another encounter with the Kuehne Magia in an empty dock, he forcibly pulled the Shooting Wolf Progrisekey with his own sheer strength, using it to transform into Vulcan for the first time. Vulcan easily handles Kuehne Magia and uses Shooting Blast to destroy the Magia, melting the cargo containers along the blast. The next day, during Aruto's announcement of his accepting the role of Hiden president, Fuwa is seen shaken... because he tries hard not to laugh at Aruto's lame joke before leaving.

After a couple encounters with Zero-One, Fuwa mistakens him to be a Humagear and kept referring him as the "Grasshopper Bastard". Eventually, Aruto revealed himself to be the "Grasshopper Bastard" in order to be honest with Fuwa and gain his trust. Together, they were able to discover MetsubouJinrai.net were the ones responsible for the Daybreak Town Accident.

Fuwa occasionally joined Aruto and Izu in stopping MetsubouJinrai.net from corrupting Humagears. Despite their alliance, the two would often come into conflict regarding the ethics of Humagears, such when a customer ordered a Humagear to resemble his deceased daughter and when a Humagear started to gain sapience.

During a hospital check-up, Fuwa was about to do a routine brain scan but was forced to leave when MetsubouJinrai.net attacked the hospital. Fuwa finally meets with the members of the MetsubouJinrai.net, Jin and Horobi, who managed to corrupt a majority of the medical Humagears using the Giger. He realizing Horobi was one of the perpetrator who caused the incident that ruined his life, Vulcan attacked Horobi blindly. Though he was warned by Valkyrie about Horobi's power, he was brutally injured after Horobi attacked him with his Amazing Kaban Shoot and Sting Dystopia, causing Fuwa to immediately lose consciousness.

"Looks like I've got two memories now. A memory of Humagears attacking me... and one of them saving me."
―Fuwa finally accepts that not all Humagears are bad.[src]

Fuwa was then rushed into a hospital after sustaining life-threatening injures from Horobi's Sting Dystopia, and underwent a surgical operation led by Dr. Omigoto. Thankfully, the surgical operation was successfully carried out by the doctor Humagear, with Fuwa even thanking the former for saving him. On the rooftop of the hospital, Fuwa revealed to Aruto that he accepts that not all Humagears are bad. Around this time, the A.I. chip in his brain was reprogrammed with Naki's A.I. consciousness.

Fuwa would learn from Izu about the possibility that Yaiba could have ulterior motives. He also was aware of her connections with ZAIA Enterprise Japan and its president, but couldn't find himself to not trust Yaiba. Fuwa made a promise to Yaiba that on the day that she does betray him, he will defeat her.

"I don't need laughter! What I need is rage! Ever since Daybreak... I've survived to this day by rage alone! All so I can crush MetsubouJinrai.net! That means everything to me!"
―Fuwa's resolve to destroy MetsubouJinrai.net, while forcefully opening the Assault Wolf Progrisekey.[src]

During a meeting analyzing on MetsubouJinrai.net, Fuwa suspected that there could be two more members. Fuwa and Yaiba later went to investigate Hiden Intelligence, suspecting there could be a MetsuboJinrai.net spy planted in the company to relay vital intelligence. He starts to accuse one of the astronaut Humagears, Raiden, could be the spy over the "Rai" part of his name. When he, Aruto, and Raiden head over to Daybreak Town and located MetsubouJinrai.net's hideout, Raiden's true nature as a sleeper agent was discovered, meaning Fuwa was correct, and the astronaut Humagear transformed into Kamen Rider Ikazuchi, who easily overwhelmed Vulcan and Zero-One. When Ikazuchi dropped the Assault Wolf Progrisekey, Fuwa picked it up and attempted to transform with it. Horobi claimed it can only be used by MetsubouJinrai.net members but Fuwa seemingly defied the odds and transformed into Vulcan Assault Wolf and using the Authorise Buster given by Aruto to defeat Ikazuchi for good.

With MetsubouJinrai.net's hideout revealed at Daybreak Town, Fuwa participated in the A.I.M.S.' raid to take down the organization once and for all. Vulcan Assault Wolf was able to disable Horobi in battle, severely damaging him. With only Jin remaining and him launching an attack to the city, Fuwa would witness Aruto taking the Assault Grip off of the Assault Wolf Progrisekey and attaching it to the Shining Hopper Progrisekey, transforming into Zero-One Shining Assault Hopper. He witnessed Zero-One finally defeat Jin, ending the MetsubouJinrai crisis once and for all.

After the battle, Horobi's damaged body was brought over to A.I.M.S. and repaired, being kept prisoner and chained in a chair. Yaiba had left A.I.M.S. and resumed working with closely with Gai Amatsu. Despite their victory, new Magias without Zetsumerisers started to resurface. While Aruto and Fuwa were able to defeat them, they remained puzzled on how where they were coming from despite having defeated MetsubouJinrai.net.

The ZAIA Conspiracy

While Aruto was busy with preventing his company from being taken over by ZAIA Enterprise Japan, Fuwa remained at A.I.M.S. interrogating Horobi. He questioned about the presence of the Ark Magia, as the Ark had grown stronger to influence Humagears to become Magia without the need of Zetsumerisers. As the Raiders caught his attention, Fuwa also questioned Horobi on their existence and for him to respond that it was the work of a "deceased" comrade of their, subtly hinting of Naki. Furthermore, he starts to notice visions of a hooded individual watching him, much to his confusion.

Fuwa began to grow more suspicious with Yaiba and during a conflict between Vulcan and Valkyrie in a parking lot, they were suddenly intercepted by Gai Amatsu, who transformed into Kamen Rider Thouser. Thouser proved to be a mighty advesary, defeating Vulcan after absorbing his data using the Thousand Jacker.

During the third round of the Workplace Competition, Fuwa helped Aruto uncover the identity of the Dynamiting Lion Raider, who turned out to have framed the defendant for a marriage scam. While Vulcan Assault Wolf fought him, he also bore witness to Aruto forcibly transformed into Zero-One MetalCluster Hopper and started to ramapage, critically injuring the Raider back into his human form. Vulcan can able to pull the Zero-One Driver off of his waist, cancelling the transformation. While Yaiba stated Zero-One had evolved, Fuwa loudly denies that and claimed wasn't Zero-One at all. Fortunately, Aruto managed to regain control of Zero-One MetalCluster Hopper form through the Progrise Hopper Blade.

Eventually, the truth is revealed to Fuwa as he learns that he's had an A.I Chip implanted into his brain, which has allowed Naki to control him remotely and distribute Raidrisers and Progrise Keys across the area to forward Gai's plans to acquire Hiden Intelligence. He also unknowingly freed Horobi from his captivity in A.I.M.S.

Fuwa using the Rampage Gatling Progrisekey

"All I ever dreamt of was to scrap the Humagears, but then what?! I've never thought about my dream before... but I'll find it someday. A purpose... A reason to exist, that I can define myself! That's why I fight! That is my... RULE!"
―Fuwa's resolve to fight for his dream.[src]

He was left in a depressed state and is then manipulated by Naki to fight against Aruto. Eventually, remembering Aruto's words of the importance of having a dream, he regains his confidence and vows to fight alongside Aruto to find a dream for himself and crush ZAIA in the process, and unleashes the power of the Rampage Gatling Progrisekey, transforming into Kamen Rider RampageVulcan. He tries to get Yaiba to join him by questioning her dreams, but to no avail as Thouser tries to defeat him to regain control, but Fuwa quickly incapacitates him before vowing to defeat Yaiba so she could be free to live her own life. Yaiba tries to fight back, but she was beaten down swiftly as well. Fuwa then proceeds to finish them off, with Gai attempting to block his finisher, but nonetheless he and Yaiba are forcefully untransformed.

The debut of Kamen Rider RampageVulcan

"I was once willing to crush all Humagears. But in the end, it was all ZAIA's fault for creating the Ark. This is why I made a new resolve... I'll crush ZAIA next!"
―Fuwa's sworn vengeance after learning everything.[src]

At the competition's end, Fuwa quits A.I.M.S. in disgust as the latter now worked under Gai Amatsu. However, Fuwa was still able to use the Shotriser and kept an eye on A.I.M.S.' movement, waiting for the chance to strike them, shall they do things more than just Humagear annihilation.

Finding True Purpose

After Gai had acquired Hiden Intelligence and had sent out Yaiba and the Battle Raiders to eliminate Jin, he shows himself towards her and explains that he has no more hatred against Humagears and focused on destroying ZAIA since they created the Ark in the first place, beating her up again during her task to handle Jin and Aruto.

A week later, Fuwa arrives at the garage in Hiden Intelligence encountering Gai, Yaiba, and two A.I.M.S. members. Gai ordered Yaiba to take care of him while he and his men left for HIDEN Manufacturing. Once again, Fuwa beats her up again, but Yaiba has taken the Assault Wolf Progrise Key before her defeat without him noticing. He then vows to beat her up everyday until she comes to her senses before leaving.

A few days later, Fuwa became the security guard of HIDEN Manufacturing, believing that staying close to Humagears would bring him one step closer to taking down ZAIA. Once ZAIA arrived to destroy fashion Humagear Delmo, Fuwa and Aruto prepared to face them. However, Yaiba managed to snatch Fuwa's Shotriser and force him to transform into Vulcan Assault Wolf, to let Naki to take control again. But Jin managed to swoop in and took Fuwa to Daybreak Town to separate Naki from Fuwa's A.I. chip with Aruto's approval. However, the seperation seemingly fails after Fuwa left during the process. The next day, Fuwa was assigned to protect Delmo, but a little mishap causes him to lose sight of her. As he rushes off to find her, he is cornered by Horobi and Jin, which prompts Naki to take control of him again. However, Naki resolves to fight for the dreams of Humagears alongside Aruto and Jin, they sync their consciousness with that of Fuwa's, allowing him to hear their voice and take control over Assault Wolf before transforming into RampageVulcan. Putting their differences aside, they take down Thouser together.

Eventually, Gai finally revealed the truth of his supposed past of being attacked by a horde of Humagears. It never happened, it was just a false memory just to make Fuwa more hostile to Humagears. Fuwa broke down, having questioned his entire actions in the past. This was the last straw for Yaiba to rebel against Gai, Fuwa joining with her as Vulcan and Valkyrie worked together to defeat Thouser together.

After leaving ZAIA, Yaiba collaborated with Jin seperate Fuwa and Naki. When returning to the hospital, he would properly meet Naki in their new Humagear body. After they relayed to Fuwa about his past, Yaiba remarked Fuwa's life up before joining A.I.M.S. was completely normal and unremarkably pedestrian to the point of being tedious to listen to, with his unusual sense of humor being the only noteworthy aspect of it. He would later discover that his family was still alive, living a regular and mundane life, and safe from harm.

The Ark Uprising

Fuwa would become active once the Ark began to surface as Kamen Rider Ark-Zero, even realigning with A.I.M.S. as it became apparent that the Ark is unlike any enemy they had faced. Following Gai Amatsu's change of heart, despite Fuwa and Yaiba unable to easily forgive him for his actions, Fuwa did request for Gai to let A.I.M.S. operate independently from ZAIA.

Fuwa and Yaiba would witness Aruto Hiden's transformation into Kamen Rider Zero-Two and completely take down Ark-Zero due to its high outprediction ability. Eventually, Ark-Zero was completely vanquished from the combined efforts of Zero-Two and Horobi, with the remaining data destroyed in the Satellite husk.

Although the threat of the Ark was seemingly over, Horobi continued his crusade to destroy humanity and began raising a Magia army. As Fuwa and Yaiba rushed to the scene to stop him, Izu and Jin arrived to prevent Horobi from become the next incarnation of the Ark. However, things took a turn to the worst when Izu was destroyed by Horobi. While Aruto mourned for her death, Fuwa stopped Yaiba from conforting the young president, wanting him to have space. When Horobi launched an attack on the city, an enraged Vulcan and Valkyrie fought Horobi and his army of Magia. Despite Jin's efforts to stop the battle, the appearance of Kamen Rider Ark-One would shook the situation more further and if that wasn't suprising, it turned out that the new Ark is: Aruto Hiden.

Believing that Aruto is being controlled by the Ark, Fuwa along with Yaiba and Gai went to confront Ark-Zero entering Daybreak Town. Annoyed by their interference, Ark-One defeats the three Riders with ease, even managing to destroy the Thousandriver and disable Vulcan and Valkyrie's A.I chips, stripping them of their transformation abilities. The three learned that Aruto isn't controlled by the Ark, but chosing to act under his own volition. He tried to request Hiden Intelligence to restore Izu but discovered that due to her role as Secretary, she can't be backed up.

Orthros Vulcan

"Naki... I will carry out your will! There is nothing...that I cannot...force open!"
―Fuwa forcefully opening Naki's Zetsumerisekey in their honor.[src]

With tensions between humans and Humagears were being raised due to Aruto's actions as Ark-One, he wallowed in regret but persisted to face Horobi. Fuwa would confront him and despite him unable to transform, used Naki's Japanese Wolf Zetsumerisekey to become Kamen Rider Orthros Vulcan. While Aruto fought him as Zero-Two, Orthros Vulcan was immediately defeated and he still wasn't fully convinced to stop his revenge.

With the battle to decide the fate between humans and Humagears came underway, Fuwa watched the television in the Thouser Department office. He would witness Aruto as Ark-One fighting Horobi and continue watching with Yaiba and Gai as Aruto finally lets go of his feelings of revenge and regain sense of himself to become Zero-One once more and defeat Horobi, but spared him out of mercy.

Following this final victory, Fuwa helped free an injured lady trapped in her car. Despite he had the opportunity to, he chose to not to return to A.I.M.S., but rather protect the city as an independent Kamen Rider.

Other Events

Kamen Rider: Reiwa The First Generation

Isamu RTFG Profile.png

Due to the timeline changes caused by Time Jacker Finis, Fuwa is seen fighting alongside the resistance fighters against Humagears under the command of Will.

In the mid-credits scene after the timeline is restored, Fuwa tells Yaiba about a dream in which he was turned into a Humagear. He asks Yaiba to destroy him if such a thing happens in reality. Yaiba asks him about his actions if she is turned into one, and Fuwa ensures her that he will crush her.

Kamen Rider Zero-One: REAL×TIME

Three months after the war between Aruto and Horobi ended, Fuwa is able to transform into Kamen Rider Vulcan after Gai Amatsu restored the A.I. chips implanted into his brain. However, a new incarnation of the Ark arises with the presence of Rihito Isshiki (S) who lead his followers at Thinknet to destroy the world and replace it with a "paradise". Fuwa as Kamen Rider Vulcan engages the Abaddon Riders and fights alongside Jin to stop a plane from dispersing nanomachine toxins. After being missing in action for the last few minutes, Vulcan and Jin returned for the final showdown against the horde of Abaddon Riders with Valkyrie, Horobi, and Thouser. After the battle ended, it turns out that he is still unemployed.

Zero-One Others

Sometime following the Thinknet crisis, Fuwa was strolling the city and looks at the teleprompter announcing that MetsubouJinrai.net is declaring war on ZAIA Enterprise Japan. When arriving to Daybreak Town, he confronts Horobi over this but promises them if they step out of line, he'll crush them in a non-aggressive tone. He was present to witness Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai fighting against Lyon Arkland as Kamen Rider Zaia, but Fuwa was too late to stop it from killing the ZAIA CEO. While lashing out to his allies about it, he discovered Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai isn't being controlled by the quartet anymore as Fuwa witnesses it destroying the Humagear bodies of MetsubouJinrai.net and later ZAIA Japan HQ.

"I'll take your resolution, so ... hit me with all my strength! I'll do my best to respond! That's ... my rule."
―Fuwa's words to Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai before transforming[src]

During the aftermath of ZAIA Japan HQ's destruction, Fuwa continued to pursue Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai as it set it's sights onto Yua Yaiba. While Vulcan and Valkyrie engage the runaway Rider, MetsubouJinrai was able to overwhelm the duo and even damaged his Shotriser during battle, forcing them to evacuate. He later meets with Sold9 at gunpoint, Fuwa convinces the Humagear to have faith in his own willpower and to follow his own "rules". After Yaiba was heavily injured in battle, Fuwa later arrives at Hiden Intelligence request the Shotriser be repaired, but Izu had to unfortunately decline due to the equipment originally created by ZAIA. However, Aruto calls him from space and revealed he launched a new company, Kamen Rider Vulcan Co., Ltd., for Fuwa to become its president and use the Zero-One Driver. Upon arriving at Daybreak Town, he stops the Solds from harming Sold9 and congratulated him for following his own "rules". Sold9 gives him the Dire Wolf Zetsumerisekey before shutting down. Confronting Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai, Fuwa uses the Zero-One Driver and the Lone Wolf Zetsumerisekey to transform into Kamen Rider Vulcan Lone Wolf and manages to fight on equal footing against the runaway Rider. Although Fuwa manages to vanquish MetsubouJinrai, it seemingly came into a heavy price to his own life as his body is left in critical condition. As Yaiba rushed to his side, Fuwa laid beside her as his eyes bled during what appeared to be his final moments.

Sometime afterwards, Yaiba had recruited Sold9 and Sold20 to A.I.M.S. and they arrive at Shigeru Daimonji's press conference to announce their pursuit to protect A.I. While Fuwa appeared to be seemingly alive and walking from behind as he fades into light. Whether Fuwa lived or died was up to the viewers' interpretation.

Personality

"When I say I'll do it, I'll do it! That's my rule!"
―Isamu's quote when he does things his way.[src]

Gruff and serious in demeanor, Isamu is shaped by his burning hatred for Humagears. Stemming from his falsified memory of the Daybreak Town Accident, Isamu believes that Humagears are designed to kill humans, and is thus obsessed with crushing them. To this end, he will readily dismantle any rampaging Humagear he finds, often ignoring the orders of his colleagues to do so. Through this, he is openly scornful towards Hiden Intelligence, who he believed covered up any terror-related attacks by Humagears. However this view began to fade after learning about the truth of the incident from Anna and his life was saved by Dr. Omigoto. He began directing his scorn towards MetsubouJinrai.net instead, even proclaiming that he doesn't need laughter, only anger. However, ever since the destruction of the terrorist group, he openly admitted to Yua that he awkwardly felt peace and has since reconsidered his hatred against them, scolding himself for getting angry at a robot trying to follow orders. This conclusion of his has even softened his personality somewhat, but his hard-headed demeanor still remained towards any unjustifiable deed he encountered. Isamu began to help Aruto not as an officer of A.I.M.S, but as himself, going far to be his moral support about Humagears. This shows that Isamu has completely lost his hatred to Humagears, just as long as they are not malicious.

His recklessness and short temper are only kept in check by his combat experience. He chooses to go by his own rules while engaging Magias or Raiders, as shown when he forcefully opens his Progrisekeys using brute force. (This eventually comes into play with the RampageGatling Progrisekey specifically designed to be opened using brute force in order to be used.)

It is revealed that Isamu is actually fond of Aruto's lame jokes and being the only one who appreciates them, but he is too proud to let his amusement be known and often tries his best not to react positively. When Naki made a pun styled after Aruto's usual wordplay, he was left laughing uncontrollably. His family, who occasionally crack similar jokes from time to time, appear to share this odd sense of humor with him.

Abilities

  • Peak Human Condition: As a former captain of A.I.M.S., Isamu is in top physical condition. He is strong enough to break open the locks on Progrisekeys and even nullify the Attache Shotgun's recoil after many uses as Vulcan Shooting Wolf. He is also strong enough to rip the Zero-One Driver off of a berserk Zero-One MetalCluster Hopper. By the end of the series, he can punch through a car door window and rip said car door off its frame and toss it a considerable distance.
  • Expert Combatant: As a former captain of A.I.M.S., Isamu is an expert in military combat arts. Despite Vulcan originally being a unit designed for ranged attacks, Isamu is able to utilize Vulcan's full potential in close-quarters combat by mixing it with gun fare. He is also able to fully outwit his opponents with his quick thinking, despite rushing into battles without prior battle plans.
  • Expert Marksman: It has been shown that Isamu is an expert in firearms, since he is capable of firing without missing his target in either long or short distances.
  • Indomitable Will: Isamu possesses tremendous willpower that allows him to accomplish his goals in his own way. It is due to his will that he is able to mentally resist Gai and Naki from fully taking control of him.

Former Weaknesses

  • A.I. Chip: Isamu has an A.I. chip implanted in his brain, allowing him to use the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. However, Naki's A.I. was uploaded into Isamu's chip instead of the standard A.I. (due to Naki's body being dismembered from the revolver shots made by Gai), allowing the Humagear to take control of him. Gai can also use his personal ZAIA Spec to stop Isamu from moving and place him in a considerable amount of mental pain through the chip. While Isamu initially overcame the influence of the chip through strong willpower, usage of the Assault Wolf Progrisekey still enabled Naki to control him due to its connection to the Ark. However after Naki allied themselves with Isamu, he became no longer at risk of being controlled, further ensured after Naki's extraction. Despite his willpower allowing him to overcome Gai's inducement of pain via the A.I. chip, the Ark is still able to incapacitate him with it. Ark-One eventually disabled his A.I. chip, rendering him unable to transform into Vulcan. Gai later restored Isamu's ability to transform.
  • Assault Wolf Progrisekey: Because the Progrisekey was meant to be used by MetsubouJinrai.net, Isamu initially faced health risks while using this form, such as coughing blood. However, he has seemingly overcome these side effects. Using the Assault Wolf Progrisekey also makes him more vulnerable to Naki's control, but this is no longer an issue following Naki's extraction from him.

Kamen Rider Vulcan

Shooting Wolf

Shooting Wolf

"Shotrise! Shooting Wolf! The elevation increases as the bullet is fired."
―Transformation announcement[src]

Rider Statistics[3]

  • Rider Height: 197.2 cm
  • Rider Weight: 95.6 kg

Ability Parameters[3]

  • Punching Power: 10.5 t
  • Kicking Power: 27.0 t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 16.2 m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 2.9 seconds

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

Compared to Zero-One's Rising Hopper form, this form has higher punching power and running speed, but is far outclassed in terms of both kicking power and jump height. It makes up for these weaknesses, however, by being specialized for long-range combat.

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. Shotriser 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 Progrisekey 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 Progrisekey is used.

Rider Statistics[4]

  • Rider Height: 192.0 cm
  • Rider Weight: 461.8 kg

Ability Parameters[4]

  • Punching Power: 47.3 t
  • Kicking Power: 22.9 t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 8.5 m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 3.1 seconds

Punching Kong (パンチングコング, Panchingu Kongu) is Vulcan's gorilla-based form, accessed by using the Punching Kong Progrisekey in the A.I.M.S. Shotriser.

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 the following finishers:

  • Shotriser finishers:
    • Punching Blast (パンチングブラースト, Panchingu Burasuto): Vulcan charges his gauntlets with scarlet energy before firing them at the enemy. The gauntlets crash into the enemy and send it into the air, crashing through any objects in the way, before punching through the target's body.
    • Punching Blast Fever (パンチングブラーストフィーバー, Panchingu Burasuto Fībā):
  • Attache Shotgun finishers:
    • Kaban Shot (カバンショット, Kaban Shotto): Vulcan augments the Kaban Shot with the power of the inserted Progrisekey.
      • Shooting Wolf - Shooting Kaban Shot (シューティングカバンショット, Shutingu Kaban Shotto)​: Vulcan fires a blue energy construct of a wolf's head.
      • Punching Kong - Punching Kaban Shot (パンチングカバンショット, Panchingu Kaban Shotto): Vulcan fires an orange energy construct of a Knuckle Demolition.

  • Rider Weight: 119.6 kg

Ability Parameters:[5]

  • Punching Power: 25.7 t
  • Kicking Power: 57.8 t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 32.4 m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 2.0 seconds

Assault Wolf (アサルトウルフ, Asaruto Urufu) is Vulcan's upgrade form accessed by using the Assault Wolf Progrisekey with the Assault Grip attached in the A.I.M.S. Shotriser.

In this form, Vulcan has higher punching power and running speed than Zero-One in Shining Hopper, but marginally lower kicking power and significantly lower jump height. In addition to physical strength, the armor covering most of Vulcan's body gives him remarkable defense, allowing him to withstand Ikazuchi's attacks without flinching. However, this form has an extremely detrimental effect on Fuwa's health, as seen when his first use of it caused him to cough up blood and barely be able to walk. After Zero-One first used the Assalt Grip with the Shining Hopper Progrisekey, these adverse effects have been nullified.

Because the Assault Wolf Progrisekey was meant to be used by MetsubouJinrai.net, Vulcan was only able to use it due to Naki's presence in his A.I. chip. After Naki was removed from the A.I. chip, Vulcan presumably lost access to this form.

In this form Vulcan wields the Authorise Buster, although he usually has to borrow it from Zero-One.

Assault Wolf is composed of the following parts:

  • AW Head (AWヘッド, AW Heddo) - The helmet.
    • Assault Signal (アサルトシグナル, Asaruto Shigunaru) - Vulcan Assault Wolf control device. The base armor “Assault Actor” makes adjustments to adapt to the Assault Wolf Progress key from time to time, maximizing its ability.
    • AW Border (AWボーダー, AW Bōdā) - Vulcan Assault Wolf face special armor. Equipped with an extended auditory sensor and radar system, it has excellent search performance. Moreover, the obtained information is sent to the battle assistance device “Orbital Binder” on the chest at any time.
    • Wolf Border Ears (ウルフボーダーイヤー, Urufu Bōdā Iyā) - The AW border extended auditory sensor. It has an excellent tracking function based on sound pattern detection and can capture up to 16 targets simultaneously within a radius of 7 km. On the right side, there is a dedicated antenna for communicating with a specific partner through a secret line with an increased security level.
    • AW Border Hair (AWボーダーヘアー, AW Bōdā Heā) - The AW border radar system. This is a type of reflector antenna that forms a beam by applying radio waves to the panel. By changing the angle of the panel, the antenna pattern can be changed and all peripheral information can be collected.
    • AW Face (AWフェイス, AW Feisu) - AW border special mask. Although a special filter is built in, it can take in the atmosphere, but it will not be submerged even under water pressure of 200m at the maximum.
    • Vulcan Optical Visor (バルカンオプティカルバイザー, Barukan Oputikaru Baizā) - The blue compound eyes. In addition to the dynamic visual acuity enhanced by eight times that of humans and a viewing angle of 160 degrees in all directions, visibility is ensured under all conditions by switching modes such as shading and night vision. An “assault scope” is installed on the left side, and the focal length is increased by a factor of seven. It also functions as an optical sighting device by synchronizing with various parts and arms such as the A.I.M.S. Shotriser via the chest “Orbital Binder”.
    • 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 Progrisekey is used.
    • Assault Act Communicator (アサルトアクトコミュニケーター, Asaruto Akuto Komyunikētā) - The communication device. Arranged on the left and right sides of the Assault Wolf Head, it integrates wireless communication devices and speakerphones to centralize communication with the outside.

  • Orbital Binder (オービタルバインダー, Ōbitaru Baindā) - The combat assist device on the chest. It incorporates a system that uses artificial intelligence to support combat. The information from each part sensor is shared, and the support for maximizing the efficiency of a series of operations including the firearm from search, capture, tracking to attack of the target is performed. This greatly improves the fighting power and increases the success rate of independent operations. However, the burden on the wearer due to the pursuit of the ability of the Assault Wolf Program key to the limit by eliminating safety devices and life support devices for the wearer that should be originally provided is not considered.
  • AW Breast (AWブレスト, AW Buresuto) - The chest armor. The armor is layered to enable independent operation and strengthened with an irregular matrix frame. It also has a multi-lock laser that captures and tracks multiple targets simultaneously, improving target visibility and accuracy in dark places.
  • AW Arm (AWアーム, AW Āmu) - The arms. Compared to the Kamen Rider Vulcan's Wolf Arm, agility and responsiveness are greatly enhanced for assault, and high potential of the wearer is required for use. In addition, it synchronizes the sighting device via the “Orbital Binder” on the chest to improve the accuracy of weapons and fighting.
  • AW Shoulder (AWショルダー, AW Shorudā) - The shoulder armor. Multi-layered armor is equipped with “howling over” that can counteract the reaction of shooting and fighting with reaction, reducing the impact. It also has weapon bays and stores various weapons such as micro missiles.
  • AW Gauntlet (AWガントレット, AW Gantoretto) - The gauntlets attached to the forearms. Hard points are provided for hanging weapons, and armaments such as submachine guns can be selected and equipped according to the needed tactics.
  • AW Grab (AWグラブ, AW Gurabu) - The armor gloves. Compared to the Kamen Rider Vulcan's Wolf Glove, the paw pad connector on the palm of the hand synchronizes the aiming device via the A.I.M.S. Shotriser and the “Orbital Binder” on the chest to improve the accuracy of shooting.

  • AW Greave (AWグリーブ, AW Gurību) - The lower shin armor. By receiving the energy supplied by the A.I.M.S. Shotriser, the legs of the wearer are strengthened, and the running power, jumping power and kicking power are improved. It also synchronizes the sighting device via the chest Orbital Binder to improve the accuracy of hitting.
  • AW Boot (AWブーツ, AW Būtsu) - The special armor boots. Adjustments specific to the impact performance have been made, and it also functions as an anchor for posture stabilization during shooting.

This form has the following finishers:

  • Shotriser finishers:
    • Magnetic Storm Blast (マグネティックストームブラースト, Magunetikku Sutōmu Burāsuto): Vulcan fires an energy construct of a wolf’s head that bites down on the enemy and destroys them.
    • Magnetic Storm Blast Fever (マグネティックストームブラーストフィーバー, Magunetikku Sutōmu Burāsuto Fībā): Vulcan somersaults into the air with his right foot covered in red and blue energy, which forms into an energy construct of a wolf's head. He then delivers a downward kick to the enemy with the wolf head crushing the target in its jaws.

  • Rider Height: 199.7 cm
  • Rider Weight: 121.3 kg

Ability Parameters:[6]

  • Punching Power: 38.2 t
  • Kicking Power: 76.7 t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 45.3 m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 1.4 seconds

Orthros Vulcan (オルトロスバルカン, Orutorosu Barukan) is Vulcan's Orthrus-based super form, accessed by using the Japanese Wolf Zetsumerisekey in the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. It is the last form that Vulcan obtained, and the data of all of Vulcan's forms as well as Kamen Rider Naki are incorporated into it.

Orthros Vulcan is statistically superior to Assault Wolf in all areas, but completely outclassed by RampageVulcan. This form allowed Isamu to transform into Vulcan even after the data in his A.I chip was erased by Ark-One. However, since the form uses a Zetsumerisekey to force the transformation rather than a Progrisekey, it is extremely unstable as a consequence. This ultimately resulted in Isamu's Shotriser being shattered and the Japanese Wolf Zetsumerisekey being heavily damaged.

Orthros Vulcan is composed of the following parts:

  • Orthros Head (オルトロスヘッド, Orutorosu Heddo) - The helmet.
    • Orthros Signal (オルトロスシグナル, Orutorosu Shigunaru) - Orthros Vulcan control device. By receiving data from Naki, adjustments are made in real time to enable humans to operate the system that was originally dedicated to MetsubouJinrai.net's destruction.
    • Orthros Border (オルトロスボーダー, Orutorosu Bōdā) - Orthros Vulcan's facial armor. Equipped with a visual device that doubles as a compound communication device and sighting device, it has excellent search performance. It also has the role of supplying the obtained information to the "Tag Binder".
    • Orthros Border Ears (オルトロスボーダーイヤー, Orutorosu Bōdā Iyā) - Orthros Vulcan's extended auditory sensor. It collects all kinds of information by deploying powerful electronic devices to the left and right and operating a large number of radars, communication devices, and sensors at the same time. In addition, by utilizing the special electromagnetic wave control ability, by analyzing the type of electromagnetic wave used by the target, electronic attacks such as disruption of radar waves and communication, deception of sensors and misidentification of targets can be tracked.
    • Orthros Face (オルトロスフェイス, Orutorosu Feisu) - Orthros Vulcan's special mask. It has a role to analyze the composition by incorporating a special filter and taking in outside air and gas. In addition, it does not flood even under a water pressure of 200m at maximum.
    • Vulcan Optical Visor (バルカンオプティカルバイザー, Barukan Oputikaru Baizā) - The blue compound eyes. In addition to the dynamic visual acuity that is 8 times stronger than that of humans and the visual angle of 160 degrees in all directions, the visibility is secured under all conditions by switching modes such as light blocking and night vision.

The special lens on the front functions as an irradiation molding machine "Beam Equipper", and when a special move is activated, it releases multiple energy bodies "Flack of Orthros" that imitate the appearance of Orthros Vulcan, disturbing the target and improve the attacking power.
  • Orthros Breast (オルトロスブレスト, Orutorosu Buresuto) - The chest armor. The armor is reinforced with anomalous matrix frame has excellent low observability due to special surface treatment. This makes it possible to perform covert actions alone, such as invading bases and sabotage. In addition, it is equipped with a multi-lock laser that simultaneously captures and tracks multiple targets, improving the visibility and accuracy of targets in the dark.
  • Orthros Arm (オルトロスアーム, Orutorosu Āmu) - The arms. The arms have been strengthened by the constant supply of energy produced by the A.I.M.S. Shotriser, greatly improving agility, grip, and punching power. On the other hand, the reaction to the wearer is also terrible, and a heavy load is involved in exchange for a powerful attack.
  • Orthros Shoulder (オルトロスショルダー, Orutorosu Shorudā) - The shoulder armor. Multi-layered armor is reinforced with anomalous matrix frame has excellent low observability due to special surface treatment. In addition, the weapon bay is installed and stores various weapons such as micro missiles.

RampageVulcan (ランペイジバルカン, RanpeijiBarukan) is Vulcan's final form accessed by using the Rampage Gatling Progrisekey in the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. This form combines the power of 10 Progrisekeys, represented by their Rider Models being incorporated into the armor on the left half of his body.

In this form, all of Vulcan's stats surpass Thouser and Jin Burning Falcon. He also has higher, punching power, kicking power, and running speed than Zero-One MetalCluster Hopper, though the latter has a higher jump height.

Vulcan is able to use the powers of the 10 Progrisekeys incorporated into his armor in order to enhance his attacks, such as using Lightning Hornet to fire a swarm of energy hornets and Punching Kong to strengthen his punches. He is also able to use them for non-combat abilities, such as flying with Flying Falcon or anchoring himself to the ground with Breaking Mammoth.

RampageVulcan is composed of the following parts:

  • Rampage Head (ランペイジヘッド, Ranpeiji Heddo) - The helmet.
    • Rampage Border (ランペイジボーダー, Ranpeiji Bōdā) - The gold section on Vulcan's forehead area. It is equipped with many visual devices with telephoto functions, special masks to assist breathing depending on the situation, sensors such as extended hearing, and many radar systems.

    • Rampage Border Ear (ランペイジボーダーイヤー, Ranpeiji Bōdā Iyā) - The 'wolf ear' 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.
    • Rampage Border Hair (ランペイジボーダーヘアー, Ranpeiji Bōdā Heā) - The blue and gold 'hair' located on the right side. 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.
    • Ability Border Hair (ランペイジボーダーヘアー, Abiriti Bōdā Heā) - The light-blue and red 'hair' located on the left side. Each colored 'hair' corresponding to each Rider Model functions independently and has the role of adjusting the parameters of the ability and adjusting the output balance when the special technique is activated.
    • Rampage Face (ランペイジフェイス, Ranpeiji Feisu) - The blue faceplate. In addition to the anti-poisoning function that removes impurities in the air during inhalation, the special labyrinth filter enables breathing in water. In addition, when flying at high altitude, a supercharger can be used to maintain the same oxygen supply as on the ground.
    • Rampage Optical Visor (ランペイジオプティカルバイザー, Ranpeiji 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, it functions as an optical sight by synchronizing with various parts and weapons such as the A.I.M.S. Shotriser via the “Ability Breast” on the chestplate.

It is a humanoid armed reinforcement system that combines the exterior of the cemented steel "ZIA-1000" (「ZIA-1000」) reinforced with composite armor and power assist with superconducting actuators and artificial muscles. In addition, the A.I.M.S. Shotriser functions as a medium for expressing the capabilities of each Rider Model and is used when transforming into a Kamen Rider Vulcan. It has an allowable range and flexibility that can immediately respond to an increase or decrease in weight due to a change in inflow energy type such as super power or super speed that changes depending on the ability, or a density change.
    • Rampage Shoulder (ランペイジショルダー, Ranpeiji Shorudā) - The blue right shoulder piece. It is equipped with a Howling Over (ハウリングオーバー, Hauringu Obā) device that counteracts the recoil of a shot, reducing damage to Vulcan.
    • Rampage Arm (ランペイジアーム, Ranpeiji Āmu) - The right arm. Through the A.I.M.S. Shotriser, the energy produced enhances the wearer's strength and maximizing agility, grip and punch. In addition, it has a built-in gyro stabilizer and has a function to stabilize all firearms.
    • Rampage Gauntlet (ランペイジガントレット, Ranpeiji Gantoretto) - The right forearm armor. It contains carbide steel ZIA-1000 equipped with a sharp fighting blade Wearstream (ウェアストリーム, Uea Sutorīmu) increases the destructive power during fighting as well as defense. In addition, the accuracy of hits such as punches is improved by using the sight through the ability breast during the fighting.
    • Rampage Grab (ランペイジグラブ, Ranpeiji 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 ZIA-1000 (「ZIA-1000」) in the shape of a wolf claw, allowing Vulcan an increase in destructive punching power.
    • Rampage Leg (ランペイジレッグ, Rampeiji Reggu) - The right leg. Due to the energy from the Shotriser, it enhances the wearer's leg strength, maximizing running, jumping and kicking power. It also has a built-in gyro stabilizer to stabilize shooting and running postures from all positions.
    • Rampage Greave (ランペイジグリーブ, Ranpeiji Gurību) - The lower right shin armor. It contains the ZIA-1000 alloy and the Wearstream blade. In addition, the accuracy of hits such as kicks is improved by using the sight through the ability breast during fighting.
    • Rampage Boot (ランペイジブーツ, Ranpeiji Būtsu) - The right foot. It is covered with a special armor made of carbide steel dubbed ZIA-1000 (「ZIA-1000」) and the Wear Claw (ウェアクロー, Uea Kurō), which not only increases the power of kicks, but also acts as a type of weight that allows Vulcan to remain stable when shooting. The claw also acts as an anchor when shooting.
  • Ability Wing (アビリティウィング, Abiriti Uingu) - The wing stored on the left shouder. It contains the Falcon Rider Model, which grants flight through an energy interference field with the wings. Also, when the "Rampage Blast" is activated, it has a role to stabilize the posture by piercing the frame into the ground behind as an anchor to suppress the super strong recoil.
  • Ability Arm (アビリティアーム, Abiriti Āmu) - The left arm, comprised of the Gorilla Rider Model, which increases the arm's strength, and Shark Rider Model, which enables it to cut through anything with energy-based constructs and reduce resistance in water to enable high-speed swimming.
  • Ability Gauntlet (アビリティガントレット, Abiriti Gantoretto) - The left forearm armor and left hand. It contains the Scorpion Rider Model for poison generation through a telescoping piercing unit or a punch, the Tiger Rider Model for flame-based attacks, and the Polar Bear Rider Model for blizzard-based attacks.
  • Ability Leg (アビリティレッグ, Abiriti Reggu) - The left leg. It contains both the Hornet Rider Model for lighting-based needle constructs for knee thrusts, and the Cheetah Rider Model for strengthening the leg and enabling enhanced speed to run 100m in 0.9 seconds.
  • Ability Boot (アビリティブーツ, Abiriti Būtsu) - The left foot. It contains the Mammoth Rider Model, which adds ultra-high pressure to the kick.
  • Ability Breast (アビリティブレスト, Abiriti Buresuto) - The chest armor, comprised of the Wolf Rider Model. It controls the operation of equipment including firearms from target search / capture / tracking to firing of bullets based on information from sensors in each part to maximize shooting efficiency. This is a re-dominated main ability, and the effect is spreading throughout the body.

This form has the following finishers:

  • Shotriser finishers:
    • Rampage Power Blast (ランペイジパワーブラスト, Ranpeiji Pawā Burasuto): This finisher has two variations:
      • The emblems of the Punching Kong, Breaking Mammoth, and Biting Shark Progrisekeys combine with Vulcan's body. The Punching Kong Rider Model's arm enhances Vulcan's own arm as he slams it into the target, then spins around and tosses them away. He then approaches the opponent on the ground and stomps, causing the Breaking Mammoth Rider Model's foot to appear and crush the enemy. The impact launches the enemy into the air, and the Biting Shark Rider Model appears below. The Rider Model dissipates before the enemy is swallowed, revealing Vulcan, who grabs the opponent between his legs and throws them back to the ground.
      • The emblems of the Punching Kong, Breaking Mammoth, and Biting Shark Progrisekeys combine with Vulcan's body. Vulcan forms the Punching Kong Rider Model's fist around his arm and uses it to smash the opponents projectile. The Breaking Mammoth Rider Model's leg then forms around Vulcan's own leg, which he uses to crush the opponent. Finally, the Biting Shark Rider Model rushes toward the opponent before Vulcan emerges from it and grabs them between his legs, which are covered in blue energy, eventually causing the enemy to be blasted backward.
    • Rampage Speed Blast (ランペイジスピードブラスト, Ranpeiji Supīdo Burasuto): The emblems of the Lightning Hornet, Rushing Cheetah, and Flying Falcon Progrisekeys combine with Vulcan's body. Vulcan charges the Shotriser with yellow energy and fires the Lightning Hornet Rider Model, which bursts into a cluster of energy stingers that fly into the opponent. He then summons the Rushing Cheetah Rider Model and fuses with it, enabling him to dash toward the enemy at high speeds, leaving behind afterimages. Upon reaching the opponent, Vulcan performs a series of bicycle kicks and jumps off. In the air, the Flying Falcon Rider Model fuses with Vulcan, enlarging the wing on his back and allowing him to fly above the opponent. Finally, Vulcan delivers a kick to the enemy while flying downward.
    • Rampage Element Blast (ランペイジエレメントブラスト, Ranpeiji Eremento Burasuto): This finisher has two variations:
      • The emblems of the Flaming Tiger, Freezing Bear, and Sting Scorpion Progrisekeys combine with Vulcan's body. He produces fire from his left hand and ice from his right hand, allowing him to fire meteors into the air that then rain down on multiple enemies while Vulcan freezes the ground beneath them. Finally, Vulcan produces an energy construct of the Acid Analyze from his right arm and attacks the opponents with it.
      • The emblems of the Flaming Tiger, Freezing Bear, and Sting Scorpion Progrisekeys combine with Vulcan's body. He produces fire from his left hand and ice from his right hand and moves them together, creating a sphere of fire and ice. He then throws his arms forward, launching the sphere at the enemy. After it strikes the opponent, Vulcan then attacks the enemy with a construct of the Acid Analyze.
    • Rampage All Blast (ランペイジオールブラスト, Ranpeiji Ōru Burasuto): This finisher has three variations:
      • The emblems of all 10 of RampageVulcan's component Progrisekeys line up in front of his Shotriser before he charges it with multicolored energy and the wing on his back digs into the ground, bracing him. He then fires a large bullet surrounded by rainbow energy that briefly transforms into the Shooting Wolf Rider Model before striking the opponent.
      • The emblems of all 10 RampageVulcan's component Progrisekeys line up in front of his Shotriser before he charges it with multicolored energy and the wing on his back digs into the ground, bracing him. He then fires a bullet that separates into 10 blasts, which summon the Progrisekeys' corresponding Rider Models to attack the opponent.
      • The emblems of all 10 of RampageVulcan's component Progrisekeys line up in front of his Shotriser while he charges it with green and yellow energy energy and the wing on his back digs into the ground, bracing him. He then fires a bullet surrounded by spiraling multicolored energy that penetrates through its target, creating swirling rainbow energy upon impact.
    • Rampage Gatling Blast (ランペイジガトリングブラスト, Ranpeiji Gatoringu Burasuto):
    • Rampage Gatling Blast Fever (ランペイジガトリングブラストフィーバー, Ranpeiji Gatoringu Burasuto Fībā): RampageVulcan delivers a flying kick surrounded in rainbow energy.
      • Rampage Power Blast Fever (ランペイジパワーブラストフィーバー, Ranpeiji Pawā Burasuto Fībā):
      • Rampage Speed Blast Fever (ランペイジスピードブラストフィーバー, Ranpeiji Supīdo Burasuto Fībā):
      • Rampage Element Blast Fever (ランペイジエレメントブラストフィーバー, Ranpeiji Eremento Burasuto Fībā):
      • Rampage All Blast Fever (ランペイジオールブラストフィーバー, Ranpeiji Ōru Burasuto Fībā):

Following the destruction of the A.I.M.S. Shotriser by Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai, Fuwa was left with the option to use the Zero-One Driver. Although he was originally unauthorized to use Aruto's Driver, it was revealed that he didn't have to be CEO under the Hiden family name. He created a new company, Kamen Rider Vulcan Co., Ltd. (株式会社 仮面ライダーバルカン, Kabushikigaisha Kamen Raidā Barukan) to be authorized with the belt as its president.


Its finisher is Lone Wolf Impact (ローンウルフインパクト, Rōn Urufu Inpakuto):

Relationships

Family

Allies

  • Aruto Hiden/Kamen Rider Zero-One: Originally, the two had differing views on society's implementation of Humagears. While Aruto believes Humagears are the dreams of humanity, Isamu views them as nothing more than killing machines and held prejudice for Hiden Intelligence's CEO (but in reality were actually fake memories manipulating him). After being medically rescued by a doctor Humagear, Isamu became more cooperative with Aruto and Hiden Intelligence, later going as far to work with him against ZAIA Japan, and working for him as a security guard in his new company. On a lighter note, he is fond of Aruto's terrible jokes and is the only one who finds them funny, though he tries to keep this to himself. Isamu proved himself to be a valuable friend to Aruto. When Aruto goes rogue in a path of revenge, Isamu uses Naki's key to become Orthros Vulcan to try & stop him, but failed.
  • Yua Yaiba/Kamen Rider Valkyrie: Despite being assigned to the same team, Isamu and Yua often bicker, causing her to deny him authorized usage of the Shotriser and any of his Progrisekeys. After Isamu learns of Yua's heavy affiliation with ZAIA Japan, he began to hold suspicions with her affiliation with Gai, but they still worked well together under pretense. After Gai revealed the existence of their AI chips, Isamu had the willpower to resist him but understood that Yua could not. Despite this, Isamu holds a great deal of respect for her and promised to continue to fight her until the day she finally breaks free, even though she made Naki control him again. After the events of Episode 33, Isamu was overjoyed to see her walk a new path outside of ZAIA Japan, even if it was not with him or Hiden Manufacturing. After Yua was confined to the hospital upon being defeated by Ark-Zero, Isamu lent her Ai-chan to help channel her inner emotions. Yua ultimately apologizes to him, responding to her with forgiveness. Later, Isamu cared for Yua enough to bring her flowers, though he wouldn't able to give them to her after she got discharged.
  • Izu: At first, Isamu felt a certain hatred towards the Humagears, mainly because of the Daybreak Town Accident that had happened years ago. That hatred apparently extended to Izu, but he overcame that hatred little by little. This was to the point that he now considers her an ally, and she was the one who warned him about what Yua could be doing along with ZAIA Japan. On the other hand, despite now working together, Izu sees Isamu's wild and reckless nature to be somewhat dangerous, and even compares it to that of a gorilla, much to the latter's outrage.
  • Horobi: After knowing that Horobi is the perpetrator behind the Daybreak Town Accident, evidenced by the latter's transformation into Kamen Rider Horobi, Isamu originally held great hatred against Horobi. His rage towards the terrorist group's leader makes him lose his composure and attack him wildly. However, Horobi (along with Jin) was surprised that he was able to use the Assault Wolf Progrisekey, despite the fact that only MetsubouJinrai.net members could use it. Isamu finally got his revenge after Horobi took the Rider Kick meant for Jin, thus seemingly decommissioning the rogue Humagear. During the Workplace Competition, Isamu interrogates Horobi for information if there's a surviving member of the latter's group involved in this. Due to Naki possessing Isamu through the A.I. chip inside his head, Horobi helped him while fighting Thouser instead, though he only proclaimed that it's the will of the Ark to do so.
  • Jin: Although there was not much interaction between them, Isamu considers him as an enemy just for being a member of MetsuboJinrai.net. After Jin was destroyed by Zero-One Shining Assault Hopper, Isamu is relieved. However, after Jin was rebuilt once more and gained a new form, Isamu is once again wary towards him. However, due to Naki possessing the former through the A.I. chip inside his head, Jin helped Isamu, with the Humagear now considering him as another "friend" that he needs to save from Gai. It was Jin who revealed to Isamu his connections to Naki.
  • Ikazuchi/Uchyaro Raiden: They were at enemies at first when Jin used a Forceriser to regain Ikazuchi's true programming. Eventually, after being destroyed with Assault Wolf, Ark revived him anew. Eventually, they worked together to destroy Ark for good.
  • Naki: Due to an A.I. chip implanted inside Isamu's head, Naki controlled him into freeing Horobi from custody. Isamu himself was not aware of this until Jin showed up footage of him destroying the camera on Horobi's large cell, which greatly shocked Isamu in return. During ZAIA Japan's attack on Delmo, Naki began to show signs of Singularity and worked with Fuwa to take down a common enemy. When Naki began cracking into the ZAIA Spec and forcing its users to rampage, Fuwa managed to dissuade them from continuing this course of action. When Fuwa was hospitalized following Yua's extraction of Naki from his brain, Naki greeted him cordially in his hospital room and revealed to him the truth about his past, as well as his embarrassingly peculiar sense of humor to Yua via an Aruto-style pun that sent him into a fit of uncontrollable laughter. Both Naki & Isamu share a bond as they're wolves themselves. When Aruto goes rogue, Naki offers Isamu their Japanese Wolf key while all his keys were obsolete. But Orthros Vulcan failed due to ShotRiser's limits.
  • Gai Amatsu/Kamen Rider Thouser: Isamu is suspicious towards Gai and his company for what he might be trying to do. After seeing that Yua is affiliated with Gai, Isamu has a fight with her, but before defeating her, Gai appears, now considering him an enemy, with the latter personally labeling Isamu a "stray dog", which angers the latter. He later bears a great hatred towards Gai after learning his evil schemes, especially after learning that he had been implanted with an A.I chip in his brain to be controlled anytime Gai demands it.

Enemies

  • Ark: The enemy of all humans & Humagears alike. The very thing that drew Isamu into battle. He, Aruto, Yaiba and Gai fought the evil AI together.
  • Kamen Rider MetsubouJinrai: TBA

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Isamu Fuwa is portrayed by Ryutaro Okada (岡田 龍太郎, Okada Ryutaro). As Kamen Rider Vulcan, his suit actor is Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔, Asai Kōsuke). While being possessed by Naki, he was voiced by Satsuki Nakayama (中山咲月, Nakayama Satsuki).

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.
  • Kamen Rider Orthros Vulcan comes from Orthros, a Greek word translating into "Daybreak".
    • It also refers to Orthrus, a two-headed guard dog in Greek mythology, referencing how the form combines both Vulcan's and Naki's wolf-based Rider powers into one.

Concept Art

Memes

There are several memes that have been made public regarding Isamu's character, such as his uncontrollable laughter upon hearing Aruto's signature pun sign, and him forcing open every Progrisekey he uses to transform. Premium Bandai later released the A.I.M.S. Role-play Set, which includes an unopenable Shooting Wolf Progrisekey. Due to Isamu's hot blooded attitude and cold personality, Izu directly questions him: Are you really a gorilla? (あなたはゴリラですか?, Anata wa goriradesu ka?). Later, in REAL×Time, Jin calls Vulcan "Gorilla" when the latter fell off a jet operated by nano machines in his Punching Kong form.

All of these memes have been publicly acknowledged by Okada, who often pokes fun at it on his YouTube channel. To that extent, he occasionally wears a gorilla mask and opens a bag of potato chips "Isamu-style".

Notes

  • Isamu is 27-years-old in the series, however his character article on Kamen Rider Zukan lists him as 26.
  • According to Okada, Isamu's different interactions with the Shotriser's energy bullet represents his different expressions of anger towards the Humagears.[10]
    • When transforming into Shooting Wolf, he punches it.
    • When transforming into Punching Kong, he deflects the bullet with the back of his hand. Okada states that this way showcases the power of Isamu's arm strength.
    • When transforming into Assault Wolf, he catches it in his hand and crushes it.
    • In his first transformation for RampageVulcan, Okada originally thought of doing a backwards roundhouse kick but did not have the martial arts experience to properly perform it on-screen without getting ridiculed by the stunt team. Ultimately he decided to just let the bullets hit him instead, with each striking a different part of the body, forming the armor. In the form's second appearance, Okada changed it into a punch, deflect, and roundhouse kick.
    • When transforming into Orthros Vulcan, he uppercuts it.
    • When using the Zero-One Driver for Lone Wolf, he performs a leaping cross at the Rider Model.
  • Isamu’s surname, Fuwa (不破), is also a homophone to the name of the fairy Fuwa (フワ) from Star☆Twinkle Pretty Cure, which airs alongside Zero-One. This fact is implicitly acknowledged by Okada on some of the song cover videos on his YouTube channel, where he has a Fuwa plush on his music stands.
