"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

KR Zonjis

Kagen as Kamen Rider Zonjis with his army

Kagen (with his army) was seen appears in the front of Sougo, Woz, Tsukuyomi, Clara Steinbelt, and Nobunaga, and proclaim that he want to defeat Zi-O, as he transform into Kamen Rider Zonjis and 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 (with Jogen) was seen standing next to their leader SOUGO Tokiwa alongside with other unknown Members (and Woz as well) and called themselves as Quartzer, the Wardens of History.

Kagen, alongside Jogen, died after they were defeated by Heisei Riders as his J Ridewatch was taken by SOUGO.

However, Kagen seems to have survived from the Heisei Riders' Fatal Attack as he was heavily injured and decided to continue SOUGO's plan to rewrite the Heisei Era as the Reiwa Era on his own, but was stopped by the Reiwa Kamen Rider who calls himself Kamen Rider Zero-One, the real First Reiwa Kamen Rider. Kagen then saw Black RX (RoboRider)'s Ridewatch that was dropped by SOUGO (after his death) after he was defeated by Zi-O and Heisei Riders as Kagen decided to use it on Zero-One, but Kagen later died after being defeated by Zero-One's Rising Hopper and Flying Falcon form.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Kagen is portrayed by Papaya Suzuki. As Kamen Rider Zonjis, he is portrayed by suit actor Kosuke Asai (浅井宏輔 Asai Kosuke).

Etymology

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

  • Kagen's transformation pose, similar to Kouji Segawa.
  • Kagen's transformation sequence, similar to Kamen Rider ZO.
  • 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.
    • Additionally, the Shin, ZO, and J Ridewatches are inserted on his Ridewatch Holder.
    • While transforming, Kagen is seen doing Kouji Segawa's signature "J" pose. The effect of his transformation sequence also resembles ZO's transformation effect.
    • 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.
