Kamen Rider Ryuki
He was a 28 year old businessman, head of the Takamizawa Group. Extremely wealthy, Takamizawa kept his sinister nature hidden to protect his public image. He accepted Kanzaki's proposal to join the Rider War so that he could gain more power and rule the world.
In the "13 Riders Special", he was the one to kill Kamen Rider Raia. Soon after he saw Shinji as a threat to his own plans and gathered every like-minded Rider, like Jun Shibaura and Shuichi Kitaoka to team up and dispose of the troublemaker. He also managed to mortally injure Kamen Rider Knight with his Final Vent, only to be killed by Knight's Final Vent immediately afterwards.
Unable to continue Ren's wish, Shinji destroyed the master mirror with the monsters and Riders fading away only for the Riders to reappear and Shinji regaining the Ryuki deck. Confused, he screams when he heard Takamizawa's voice saying that the Rider Fight will not end.

- Punching Power: 11.5 t.[note 1]
- Kicking Power: 15 t.[note 2]
- Maximum Jump Height: 25 m.
- Maximum Running Speed: 100 m. per 6 sec.
Takamizawa can transform into Kamen Rider Verde using his Card Deck and V Buckle upon forming a contract with Biogreeza. His Visor, the Biovisor (バイオバイザー Baio Baizā), is mounted on his left thigh. All of Verde's parameters, with the exception of his kicking power, are below average. Thus, he relies on deception to defeat his opponents rather than direct confrontation.
Through the use of the Hold Vent, Verde can arm himself with the Bio-Winder (バイオワインダー Baio Waindā), a yo-yo weapon derived from Biogreeza's eye. He primarily relies on his Clear Vent, which makes him invisible, and the Copy Vent, which allows him to assume the appearance and weapon of a Rider.
By using his Final Vent, Verde can execute his finisher, the Death Punish (デスパニッシュ Desu Panisshu), in which Biogreeza grabs Verde's legs with its tongue and swings him into the target, resulting in both Verde and the enemy being launched into the air. Verde then grabs the opponent and spins around before performing a piledriver on the enemy as the two fall to the ground.
