Jun Fukuzoe (福添 准 Fukuzoe Jun) is the Vice President of Hiden Intelligence.
He is the Vice President of Hiden Intelligence. While he is an excellent person, he always seems to find himself in second place. After the death of the former president, he believes he will be the next CEO, but is shocked to find the new CEO is Aruto Hiden.
Since then, he sees Aruto as an obstacle in his path. While he secretly wishes that the new CEO will fail at his responsibilities, he does take pride in the company's days of success.
One of his more reprehensible acts was his efforts to keep Hiden's image from being tarnished by shutting down all of the non-infected Humagears in a hospital to prevent a further outbreak and keep the shareholders and investors happy to keep the company's stock up. The downside to this is that hundreds of people would possibly die due to the hospitals being short on human medical staff, which he saw as a necessary evil to keep the company's reputation of its products afloat after the media's opinion became negative towards Humagears.
After the Workplace Competition, Jun expresses his intention to stay with Hiden Intelligence as Vice-President despite the company now being under the ownership of ZAIA Enterprise Japan, desiring to see what happens to the company that the former president left behind. After some time, Jun finally had enough of Gai's questionable corporate choices, his latest decision being to sell RaidRisers to the public, and deliberately make ZAIASpec users go berserk as a demonstration, regardless of the wellbeing of the people. He and Yamashita would go to Aruto for help in order to reactivate Shesta so she can dig up any and all evidence of Gai's wrongdoings. The result was the discovery of over 1000 complaints made against him, in which Jun declared that he would use this evidence and go to the Board of Directors to request Gai's removal as President of Hiden Intelligence.

Due to his massive inferiority complex, he sees Aruto as nothing but an incompetent CEO and wishes that the latter would fail. Despite so, he does indeed take great pride in the company's success and lets Aruto do his job should it benefit him and Hiden Intelligence in general, and will go through any lengths to do so, such as participating in a TV drama production to restore Hiden Intelligence's good name. His dedication to restoring Hiden's name is a big double-edged sword for him, as he authorized the shut-down of Humagears from a recently attacked hospital courtesy of MetsubouJinrai.net, despite well-knowing that doing so will put countless lives at risk. This shows that Jun does not care about the well-being of others in the slightest, but only about restoring Hiden's tarnished name. This also means that he will do anything to do so - even if said actions are less than morally right.
It was also revealed that Jun is fully aware that Hiden Intelligence was one of the many companies who created Humagears, but he is persistently covering up anything relating to the Daybreak Town Accident in order to maintain Hiden Intelligence's good name in the public, especially from Aruto.
However, Jun is a reasonable man, overall. He knows to give recognition to others when it is due, such as with Aruto when the entire board of directors of Hiden Intelligence praised the young President for his actions as Zero-One. Deep down, it is shown that Jun actually cares for Aruto more than he actually lets on. When Aruto had to quit his position, Jun showed concern to him despite still having to be in the company. He would show such concern again when Aruto was defeated by Ark-Zero, and was rendered terrified of what artificial intelligence was capable of if it operated beyond human capacity, reminding the young man of what he was fighting for.
Even despite Jun's questionable actions during Aruto's tenure as President, he is also a man that knows where the line should be drawn in regard to corporate decisions. Upon realizing that Gai planned to use people who had bought the ZAIASpec and was intending to make them go berserk in order to sell Raidrisers to the public, Jun decided that enough was enough; he went to Aruto for help to reactivate Shesta in order to dig up any and all complaints made against Gai, so they can be used to initiate a hostile takeover to forcibly remove him as Hiden Intelligence's president.
