"Zi-O, huh? I'll crush you!"
―Kagen's declaration to defeat Zi-O.[src]

Kagen (カゲン) is a member of Quartzer who transforms into Kamen Rider Zonjis (仮面ライダーゾンジス, Kamen Raidā Zonjisu) in Kamen Rider Zi-O: Over Quartzer[1].

History

Kagen as Kamen Rider Zonjis with his Ninja army.

Kagen led with his Ninja army against Sougo Tokiwa, Woz, Tsukuyomi, Clara Steinbelt, and Nobunaga, and proclaim that he aim for Clara's life as he transform into Kamen Rider Zonjis to battle against Zi-O and Woz Futuring Shinobi. He was joined by Jogen, but both of them were defeated by Zi-O II, Woz Ginga Wakusei, and GeizRevive Goretsu and escape from Sougo and his friends.

Later, Kagen and Jogen were seen standing next to their leader SOUGO Tokiwa alongside with other members and called themselves as Quartzer, the Wardens of History. Zonjis was defeated after they were defeated by Heisei Riders as his J Ridewatch was taken by SOUGO.

However, Zonjis seems to have survived from the battle and decided to continue SOUGO's plan to rewrite the Heisei Era as the Reiwa Era on his own, but was stopped by the arrival of Kamen Rider Zero-One, the first Reiwa Kamen Rider. Zonjis used then found the RoboRider Ridewatch to use it against Zero-One, but Zonjis later died after being defeated by Zero-One's Rising Hopper and Flying Falcon form.

Kagen is portrayed by Papaya Suzuki (パパイヤ 鈴木). As Kamen Rider Zonjis, his suit actor is Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔, Asai Kōsuke)[7][6].

In Japanese, Kagen (下弦) means the last quarter moon in the lunar phase. It also shares the same pronunciation with Kagen (下限, lit. "Lower limit"), in contrast to Jogen's name.

Notes

  • Zonjis' name and design is representing Shin Kamen Rider: Prologue, Kamen Rider ZO, and Kamen Rider J, three films which were released during the Heisei Era but are counted as Showa Rider films due to the involvement of Shotaro Ishinomori. and predating the franchise's continuous run on television starting with Kuuga.
    • There are three red jewels embedded in the clock effect that appears behind him at the time of transformation resembles Shin's Third Eye, ZO's Red Core and J's J-Spirit.[9]
    • While transforming, Kagen is seen doing Kouji Segawa's signature "J" pose[8]. The effect of his transformation sequence also resembles ZO's transformation effect.
    • His Crusher is similar to ZO, can be seen after the transformation is completed.[9]
    • Additionally, the Shin, ZO, and J Ridewatches are inserted on his Ridewatch Holder.
    • Kagen's civilian outfit is based on Masaru Aso's civilian attire.
    • His Clock Hands-like antennae are positioned to 11:05, which is gives him a closer resemblance to the grasshopper's antennae, slightly higher than that of Zi-O and Barlckxs.
