"You... You were supposed to make my game more fun."
―Gai's final words as Ouja betrayed him.[src]

Jun Shibaura (芝浦 淳 Shibaura Jun) was Kamen Rider Gai (仮面ライダーガイ Kamen Raidā Gai, Masked Rider Gai), a fictional character in Kamen Rider Ryuki. He was the sixth of the 13 Kamen Riders the story revolves around.

History

Kamen Rider Ryuki

He is a 3rd year college student at Meirin University, extremely well-versed in computers and programming to be in the Matrix Netgame Club. He joined the Rider War simply to be the winner, seeing it as nothing more than a game. Jun even used his Matrix members' thrill-seeking urge against them to fight to the death in a game similar to the Rider War while he watched from the shadows.

Investigating the matter, Shinji meets Jun when he reveals to the journalist as the mastermind behind the game of death. When the Mirror Monsters arrived, they transformed and fight one of the Mirror Monsters. After the defeating the monsters however, he later attacks Ryuki and steal his Dragreder card. He used both Shinji's card and the virus he uploaded to the ORE Journal mainframe to blackmail himself into their head of their company. Shimada eventually managed to wipe out his programming with her own virus, while Miyuki Tezuka stole back the Dragreder card. Soon after, Jun was picked up by the police for his ties to the Matrix member murders, getting his father to bail him out with Shuichi Kitaoka's aid.

Gai dies from Ouja's attack

Jun even went so far as to reveal the true identity of the other Riders among them, impressed with Takeshi Asakura's sadistic nature. To suit that end, Jun kidnapped Yui to start a "Rider party" between him, Kamen Rider Knight, Kamen Rider Raia, and Kamen Rider Ryuki. However, in the middle of the fight, their battle gets intertwined with the one between Kamen Rider Zolda and Kamen Rider Ouja, who used Gai as a shield to take the blunt of Zolda's Final Vent before killing him with his own hands. Metalgelas was infuriated at its master's death at the hands of Kamen Rider Ouja and went after him only to fall victim to Ouja's contract card.

Oddly, Gai, like Kamen Rider Scissors and Kamen Rider Imperer, didn't reappear in the epilogue after Kanzaki reverted time.

Personality

Jun is a self-centered and arrogant man who takes pleasure in flaunting his superiority and toying with other people's lives for nothing more than a good laugh. He has no qualms about taking others' lives or leading others to do so. He prides himself in his resourcefulness and intelligence, which allows him to be able to manipulate other people the way he sees fit. However, such a trait eventually becomes the reason for his death, as he arrogantly (and wrongly) thinks that his intelligence will enable him to control Takeshi Asakura - one of the most dangerous participants of the Rider War, only to be manipulated himself in the end.

Rider Statistics

  • Rider Height: 195 cm.[1]
  • Rider Weight: 100 kg.[1]

  • Kicking Power: 15 t.[note 1]
  • Maximum Jump Height: 20 m.[1]
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m. per 5 sec.[1][2]

Special Attacks:

Jun can transform into Kamen Rider Gai using his Advent Deck and V Buckle upon forming a contract with Metalgelas. His Visor, the Metalvisor (メタルバイザー Metaru Baizā), is mounted on his left shoulder. Gai's punching power and kicking power are identical to Zolda's, while his jump height and running speed are higher. However, his jump height is still overall poor in comparison to the rest of the 13 Riders.

Through the use of his Strike Vent Advent Card, Gai can arm himself with the Metal Horn (メタルホーン Metaru Hōn), a gauntlet derived from Metalgelas' head.

By using his Final Vent, Gai can execute his finisher, Heavy Pressure (ヘビープレッシャー Hebī Puresshā), which equips him with the Metal Horn if he does not already possess it. Gai next grabs onto Metalgelas' head with his legs and points the Metal Horn in front of him. Metalgelas then runs into the enemy, resulting in Gai striking it with the Metal Horn.

Behind the scenes

Jun Shibaura is portrayed by Satoshi Ichijo (一條 俊 Ichijō Satoshi). As Kamen Rider Gai, his suit actor was Takeshi Mizutani (水谷 健 Mizutani Takeshi).

Conception

Kamen Rider Gai concept art


Meme

  • Since his last appearance in Rider Gathering, several fans began to depict Kamen Rider Gai as a human shield (as he was used as one by Ouja to defend Zolda's Final Vent), earning the "Guard Vent" nickname.

Notes

  • His Rider name, Gai, is a kun'yomi reading for the kanji "Yoroi" ( lit. "armor"), as his Rider form appeared as he is heavily armored along with his Mirror Monster, Metalgelas.
  • Like other Riders, Jun died an ironic death: He loved to manipulate other people but was killed by a person he thought he could manipulate, technically having himself manipulated in the end.
  • Gai is one of three riders in the series who has their Visor attached to their suit (in Gai's case, the Visor is mounted on his shoulder), the other two being Imperer whose Visor is mounted on his knee, and Verde whose Visor is mounted on his thigh. The same is said for their respective American counterparts.
