|This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Ghost.|
Jered (ジェレド Jeiredo), who transforms into the evil Kamen Rider Dark Necrom R (Red) (仮面ライダーダークネクロムＲ [レッド] Kamen Raidā Dāku Nekuromu Reddo), is one of a trio of Kamen Riders who serve Kamen Rider Dark Ghost.
With his fellow Dark Necroms, Jered watched with enthusiasm as Argos brought back the Eyecon of Napoleon, marking the eighth of his collection of 100 Ghost Eyecons. The Dark Necroms were then sent out by Argos to collect the remaining heroic Eyecons for him in both their world and the "other world". Seen off by Argos as Dark Ghost, the Dark Necroms boarded their Iguana Ghostrikers and departed their Eyecon-like world for Earth.
During the mission, he encounters a pink colored Rider with a video-game motif but he escaped to fight with Specter and Necrom and was eventually destroyed by Specter.

Powers and Abilities

Dark Necrom R's forms are called Damashii (魂 Damashī, lit. "Souls"), accessed using the Ghost Eyecons. He also bears a headpiece called the Persona (ペルソナ Perusona, Latin for "Mask"), which gives off a glow effect with the rest of his body. The Persona changes with Dark Necrom R's numerous Damashii forms, as well as serving as a prefix title for all of the Damashii forms' helms.
Transient (トランジェント Toranjento) is the default pre-form armor of Kamen Rider Dark Necrom R. Like most pre-forms in the Kamen Rider Series, it is weaker than all of the other forms and exists solely as a transition stage of the armor to any given Damashii form.

Dark Necrom R Damashii is the default form of Kamen Rider Dark Necrom R. Accessed through the use of the Dark Necrom R Eyecon, this form is a variant of the default Necrom Damashii assumed by Kamen Rider Necrom. This form bears the Persona Dominator Red (ペルソナドミネータＲ Perusona Dominētā Reddo).
Despite the lack of a Liquid Dropper, Dark Necrom R is capable of using finishing attacks.
This form's finisher is the Dark Necrom Spiral (ダークネクロム スパイラル Dāku Nekuromu Supairaru): A spinning kick that uses spiritual energy which makes the body and mask of Dark Necrom R's form glow and envelops him in a red flame for a two-footed corkscrew kick.

Benkei Damashii (ベンケイ魂 Benkei Damashī, lit. "Benkei Soul") is Dark Necrom R's white warrior monk-based form themed after Benkei, a giant of a sōhei who became infamous for positioning himself at a bridge and collected the swords of passing swordsmen, collecting 999 blades before being finally defeated by Minamoto no Yoshitsune, and loyally followed him through the Gunpei War and their time as outlaws following Yoshitsune's brother Yoritomo's treachery. Benkei died during the Battle of Komoro River, though in doing so cemented his place in history by killing an estimated 300 men of the 500 sent to kill them and died standing. Accessed through the Benkei Ghost Eyecon, this form bears the Persona Warrior Monk (ペルソナウォリアーモンク Perusona Woriā Monku) helmet with the Face Seven Arms (フェイスセブンアームズ Feisu Sebun Āmuzu) faceplate.
While assuming Benkei Damashii, Dark Necrom R dons the Soshu Hood (ソウシュウフード Sōshū Hūdo) adorned with the Plating of Loyalty (チュウギノトキン Chūgi no Tokin).

Behind the scenes
Jered's name is derived from the name of its color (red).
- The colors of the three Dark Necroms (R, B, and Y) are the standard three colors for the first three Rangers of a Super Sentai series, which are also the primary colors of painting and drawing.
- On the Super Sentai side, Dark Necrom R is one of the two males of the three Dark Necroms, alluding to the standard formation of Super Sentai's "2 male, 1 female" formation, with the female being yellow.
- The suits of the three Dark Necroms (four if you count Dark Necrom P from the series) are recycled Parka Ghost bodies bearing recolored Ore Ghosts and Persona Dominator with the Proto Mega Ulorder on the wrist and a basic belt buckle in place of a Ghost Driver on the waist.
- Dark Necrom R possess an opaque red Various Goggle (ヴァリアスゴーグル Byariasu Gogōru), which is a distinction from its fellow comrades. The original Necrom bears a green translucent Various Goggle with its singular optic being partially exposed.
