"So... Become mine. Grand power. In order to revive you, I sacrifice a human life!"
―Junichi's proclamation[src]

Junichi Shimura (志村 純一 Shimura Jun'ichi) was Kamen Rider Glaive (仮面ライダーグレイブ Kamen Raidā Gureibu, Masked Rider Glaive), a character from the film Kamen Rider Blade: Missing Ace and the true identity of Albino Joker (アルビノジョーカー Arubino Jōkā), the main antagonist of the film.

History

New Generation

Part One

In this special, time passes, and Junichi Shimura eventually joins BOARD, which is now operated by Sakuya Tachibana. He takes up the role of Kamen Rider Glaive, being the new Blade. He is armed with the Glaive Rouzer, a modified version of the Blay Rouzer. He appears hidden in the bushes when Natsumi Miwa is persecuted by Peacock Undead.

Part Two

Kamen Rider Glaive appears watching to Natsumi Miwa and Shin Magaki is chased by Peacock Undead, he was walking while waiting for the perfect time to help them.

Part Three

Junichi gives the Rouzer card to Shin and Natsumi

Natsumi and Shin continue running from the Undead. Natsumi finds a steel pipe and tries to get Shin to cover her escape, claiming that men are supposed to protect women. This fails and the Undead continues chasing them until an explosion destroys it. The mysterious figure approaches them, no longer hiding and throws them both Change Kerberos Rouse Cards. He returns back to his human form.

Part Four

"Can't escape your destiny, but it is the will of the cards that become Kamen Riders"
―Junichi Shimura meeting Natsumi and Shin[src]

Junichi offers them both to be Kamen Riders. He also explains that the incident with the Undead ended once, but the power of the Kamen Riders is needed again. Natsumi and Shin refuse and give back the cards. Junichi says to himself that they will return and that it is their fate is to become Riders. Behind Junichi is Kazuma Kenzaki, who becomes a garbageman.

Missing Ace

In the movie, like Hajime Aikawa, he is a Joker-class Undead with a white and pink color scheme, as opposed to Aikawa's black and green colors - thus the Albino Joker name. When the previous fight ended with Kenzaki sealing Hajime, he rose out of the shadows. The first step in his plan was to release all of the Undead again by forcefully taking the Rouse Cards from Kei Karasuma. When all the Undead are sealed, he kills his own subordinates and disguises himself as Shin to fool the other riders, but Shiori figures out Shimura's plan and he is exposed. His plan is to obtain the power of Jashin 14 using the Vanity Card, his main target is Amane Kurihara because it's revealed that her father entered the location of Jashin 14, so only one of his blood can be sacrificed. During the fight with the Albiroachi, Kenzaki tells Mutsuki to unseal Hajime, which he does. With Hajime released, he goes out and protects Amane, taking her to safety. Shimura catches up with them and Hajime transforms into the Black Joker to fight Shimura; unfortunately, still exhausted after being unsealed, Shimura defeats him. In some magazines, there are shots of the Albino Joker wielding a red scythe at the location of this scene; however, this weapon was never seen in the movie. Although Black Joker is the most powerful of all possible Jokers, the Black Joker is extremely exhausted and therefore is defeated.

He then uses the Category King cards to create the Vanity Card and seals Amane in it. He then goes on to revive Jashin 14 by inserting it into an ancient tablet, fusing with the beast to obtain its power. He then appears to the Riders in his new form and attempts to kill them. Hajime concocts a plan to free Amane and stop Shimura: to trade places with Amane. Hajime tells Kenzaki to destroy the tablet. Kenzaki hesitates knowing he'll kill Hajime, but Hajime convinces him and destroys it, weakening Shimura. Kenzaki then changes into King Form and uses his Royal Straightflash attack to split Jashin, thus Shimura dies in the explosion that insured from the monster's death.

During the events of Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, Kamen Rider Diend Complete Form summons Glaive alongside seven other Movie Riders using the Attack Ride Card Gekijouban to defeat Kamen Rider G Den-O.  Here, Glaive uses Gravity Slash, possibly in order to better go along with the other Riders' ranged finishing moves.

Powers and Abilities

  • Biological Immortality: As an Undead, Junichi Shimura can survive from any physical injuries, no matter how grave they may be.
  • Human Disguise: Since Junichi Shimura is an Undead, he can shift himself from his human to Undead form, making him similar to Royal Club Undeads.
  • Albiroachi: He can generate his own army of Darkroachi, the Albiroachi without the help of the Sealing Slab.

Weaknesses

  • Amane Kurihara: Albino Joker as Jashin-14 is invincible but as seen in the movie. When Hajime changes places with Amane, it causes his power to go down, making vulnerable to the attacks of BOARD Riders.

Albino Joker

Albino Joker

Statistics

  • Height: 219 cm.[3]
  • Weight: 116 kg.[3]

The Albino Joker (アルビノジョーカー Arubino Jōkā) is Shimura's true form. A second Joker that rose to power after Hajime was sealed in the movie, he strives to create the Vanity Card using the power of all four Category King Rouse Cards. One of the most fearsome powers of the Albino Joker is that, even without having won the Battle Fight, (although he may technically have, considering Hajime was sealed away), he is able to generate an army of Albiroachi without the help of the Sealing Slab.

Unlike his counterpart Black Joker, Albino Joker has a lot of abilities, making him the most powerful Undead.

  • He can shoot energy beams from his hand.
  • He can assume his own human disguise, similar to the Royal Club Undead.
  • He can unseal Undead and force them to loyally serve him as in the movie, all Undead try to help Albino Joker hunt Amane rather than go rogue and fight among themselves.
  • He can generate his own army of Darkroachi, the Albiroachi without the help of the Sealing Slab.


This form is exclusive to Missing Ace.


Jashin-14

Albino Joker controlling Jashin-14

Statistics

  • Height: 50 m.[3]
  • Weight: 204 t.[3]

After using the Vanity Card to seal Amane into the slab as a sacrifice, the Albino Joker is granted control over Jashin-14, an ancient creature that is nigh-indestructible. He is easily able to swat away attacks by all four of the Riders, even with Garren and Blade using their Jack Forms. However, after Hajime replaces Amane as the sacrifice then makes Blade destroy him, this form is severely weakened, and the Riders are able to attack him at last, until both Jashin and the Albino Joker are destroyed by Blade's Royal Straightflash.


This form is exclusive to Missing Ace.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Junichi Shimura is portrayed by Yuuki Kuroda (黒田 勇樹 Kuroda Yūki),who previously portrayed HiroshiIcon-crosswiki.png in Kousoku Sentai TurborangerIcon-crosswiki.png and later played a similar character Junichi Kaito in Kamen Rider Decade. As Kamen Rider Glaive and Albino Joker, his suit actor was Naoki Nagase (永瀬尚希 Nagase Naoki),In Kamen Rider Glaives appearance in Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, his suit actor was Toshihiro Ogura (おぐら としひろ Ogura Toshihiro).

Etymology

  • Kamen Rider Glaive name comes from the middle French glaive, and east from the old French glaive, from the Latin gladius ("sword")

Concept Art

Notes

  • His name, "glaive", refers to the modern French term for the gladius, the Roman short sword, as his arsenal is based on Blade's.
  • Glaive's use of the Glaive Rouzer makes him analogous to Blade, whereas Natsumi Miwa is analogous to Garren and Lance is analogous to Leangle.
  • Albino Joker is a negative color swap of Joker and bodies are opposite.
    • In some playing card decks, there are two Jokers, one Black, and the other one Red. In this case, Hajime would represent the suits of Spades and Clover (Black Joker) while Junichi would represent the suits of Hearts and Diamonds (Red Joker); note the color of Hajime's body and Junichi's visor in their Undead forms.
      • Since Red Jokers usually outrank Black Jokers, this would be fitting for Junichi being the most powerful Undead.
  • Unusually for an Undead, instead of being sealed into a card, the Albino Joker met his demise by being destroyed alongside Jashin 14.
  • While the original three Ace Riders in Missing Ace all died, the A.R. World Ace Riders from the World of Diend manage to survive the events of the two-parter in Kamen Rider Decade.
  • Junichi Shimura is the only Ace Rider that is not human.
  • Ace Riders is the first movie trio Riders in the Heisei Era, followed by Kabutech Riders from Kamen Rider Kabuto. This is subsequently followed by the Dark Necrom riders from Kamen Rider Ghost and Quartzer from Kamen Rider Zi-O.
  • Out of all Original Riders that returned in Decade, he's one of the so many already deceased Movie Riders to make a return in Decade.
  • According by Natsumi Miwa, Junichi's zodiac sign is Sagittarius and his Blood type is 0.
  • Kamen Rider Double in the (rigth side) and Kamen Rider OOO , the Gaia Memories and Core medals that both uses are the same color to the three Ace Riders.
    • Double (right side) uses the Gaia memories Cyclone Heat and Luna.
    • OOO in his Tatoba Combo uses the medals Taka, Tora and Batta.
