- "My name is Bujin Gaim, the one who will conquer the world!"
- ―Bujin Gaim makes his presence known to Gaim and Ryugen[src]
Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim (仮面ライダー武神鎧武［ブジンガイム］ Kamen Raidā Bujin Gaimu) is the main antagonist of the film Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle, who was considered the strongest Bujin. He was an Armored Rider that bears a strong resemblance to Kamen Rider Gaim's Orange Arms, albeit with red-colored armor on the orange fruit theme, as well as a black mouthpiece as opposed to Gaim's silver one. He was in Blood Orange Arms throughout the entire film and is never seen reverting out of Rider form.
In the movie, he attempts to obtain the "ultimate power" by defeating all fourteen Bujin Riders and also targets Mai Takatsukasa due to her resembling the Priestess of Fate. In the final battle, he assumes Lotus Position before he is ultimately defeated by Armored Rider Gaim Orange Arms and Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Style after being weakened by a Strike End striking a Suika Arms Odama Mode into the tree powering Lotus Position.
The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle
Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim was known as the evilest and strongest Bujin. His goal was to seek Heaven's Power for himself so he can rule the era. He targets the Bujin Riders and is able to control a small army of monsters after he defeats that respective Rider. His main henchman is the Pitcherplant Monster and it has the ability to absorb a defeated Rider. He sends it out to kidnap Mai as she was mistaken for the Priestess of Fate.
Later that night, Bujin Gaim and his army assault the Temple of Honno-ji where he kills Oda Nobunaga, destroying his clan and defeats Bujin OOO who was then absorbed by the Pitcher Plant Monster. He comes into a confrontation with the original Gaim, who almost defeats him as Gaim and Ryugen forced him to retreat. Bujin Gaim then targets Bujin Double the following day. During their battle, Bujin Double assumes CycloneJokerXtreme and almost gains victory until Armored Rider Zangetsu attacks him to save Bujin Gaim due to being him being mistaken as Armored Rider Gaim. Zangetsu soon realizes Bujin Gaim is allied with the Pitcher Plant Monster in an attempt to consume the Bujin Riders' powers and is not the original Gaim from his world. Bujin Gaim and his monster attempt to capture Zangetsu as well but Takatora easily gets away. He soon opens a crack to Wizard's world, where he sneaks up to Kousuke and the Pitcher Plant monster swallows him up, causing Haruto to chase after him.
He finally targets Bujin Fourze when Kouta and Mitsuzane were sent by Ieyasu to search for Kaito, who took up the mantle as Bujin Baron. Bujin Gaim defeats Bujin Fourze before coming into combat with Armored Rider Gaim. Kouta is then forced to escape using the Suika Lockseed (from Ryugen before being absorbed) and takes Ieyasu to safety.
After every Bujin Rider was sacrificed to the God Tree, Bujin Gaim targets Mai before fighting against Gaim, Baron and Wizard. As Kamen Rider Wizard handles the Pitcher Plant Monster to rescue Nitoh and Mitsuzane, Bujin Gaim is too powerful for Armored Riders Gaim and Baron to handle until Zangetsu arrives to aid the Armored Riders, telling them to fight the Monster while he fought Bujin Gaim as he's too dangerous for them to handle.
Soon, he fought against four Armored Riders, Wizard and Beast. Despite fighting alone against them, Bujin Gaim still managed to overwhelm the Riders before entering Ieyasu's castle and targeting Mai for the final time before being interfered by Gaim and Wizard in Infinity Style. However, he decides to show his true power by merging himself with the God Tree, assuming Lotus Position and defeating Armored Rider Gaim and Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Style easily. In the final battle, he battles against Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Dragon Gold and Armored Rider Gaim Wizard Arms, who gain the upper hand to defeat him. As he couldn't make the effort to defeat them easily, he decides to trap them within the God Tree. But Haruto and Kouta were able to break free with the help of the sacrificed Bujin Riders' power, weakening Bujin Gaim as a side effect. Bujin Gaim then meets his demise when he is critically weakened by a combination of WizarDragon's Strike End hitting a sacrificed Suika Arms Odama Mode, followed by Wizard's Strike Wizard and Gaim's Burai Kick, and with his death, much needed rain began falling from the sky to end the drought that Bujin Gaim's plot has made.
Video Game appearances
Kamen Rider: Battride War II
Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim appears in Kamen Rider: Battride War II, Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle being among the Kamen Rider movies revisited in the game.
Powers and Abilities
Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim has abilities similar to an Over Lord Inves. Bujin Gaim is able to open cracks into other worlds, control the tree from the Helheim forest that appeared in his world and even create and control the monsters born from it which appear as those defeated previously by Gaim's Kamen Rider predecessors, which he uses as his personal army.
Like with the other Armored Riders, Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim's forms are called Arms (アームズ Āmuzu). His Sengoku Driver plays American rock & roll music and emits a guitar riff sound before every transformation, while his personal Lockseeds are styled with a mix of Japanese words and English words.
By pressing the Sengoku Driver's Cutting Blade down on the Lockseed after transforming from one to three times, Bujin Gaim can activate one of three finishing moves based on his current Arms form: Squash (スカッシュ Sukasshu), Au Lait (オーレ Ōre), or Sparking (スパーキング Supākingu). In addition to the Sengoku Driver's finishing moves, Bujin Gaim can perform a Fruits Charge (フルーツチャージ Furūtsu Chāji) finishing attack by inserting a Lockseed into the Drive Launch of his Musou Saber.
The Ride Wear (ライドウェア Raido Uēa) is Bujin Gaim's default form undersuit, which is briefly seen during Bujin Gaim's transformation sequence before the Armor Part attaches or when he changes Arms. However, this form is completely vulnerable to any incoming attacks when shot at directly in the suit rather than at the Arms that is descending down on the Rider.
Bujin Gaim's Ride Wear is nearly identical to that of the original Armored Rider Gaim, except for his head crest being crimson-colored and the black mouthpiece as opposed to Gaim's silver one. While he lacks Gaim's Lockseed Holder, as he only possesses a single Lockseed, he is still equipped with a Musou Saber side weapon, which is also held on the left side of his Sengoku Driver with a holster.
The Ride Wear that Bujin Gaim's Sengoku Driver has is easily identifiable through its Rider Indicator (ライダーインジケーター Raidā Injikētā) faceplate. The Rider Indicator only identifies what Ride Wear a Sengoku Driver contains for simplicity and can be replaced with extensions such as the Genesis Core or Senyo Joint.

Blood Orange Arms (ブラッドオレンジアームズ Buraddo Orenji Āmuzu) is Bujin Gaim's blood orange-based default form. Accessed through the Blood Orange Lockseed, this form bears the Dai Kabuto (ダイカブト lit. "Orange Helmet") helmet with the Pulp Eye (パルプアイ Parupu Ai) visor.
While assuming Blood Orange Arms, Bujin Gaim dons the Blood Orange Armor Part (ブラッドオレンジアーマーパート Buraddo Orenji Āmā Pāto) and his Arms Weapon is the Daidaimaru (Bujin Gaim ver.).
Compared to his good counterpart, Bujin Gaim has more power than any of Gaim's normal Lockseed forms, and is slightly weaker than Kachidoki Arms. As for his agility stats, he can jump as high as Gaim Pine Arms and is slightly faster than him.
This Arms' finisher is the Naginata Musou Slicer (ナギナタ無双スライサー Naginata Musō Suraisā): Bujin Gaim locks the Blood Orange Lockseed into the Daidaimaru Naginata Mode and charges the Daidaimaru end with energy before he slashes the enemy with it. The Blood Orange Charge has two variations for close-quarters combat; a straight slash version for a single target and a 360 degree turn slash version that forms blood orange slices on contact with the target.
This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle.
After Bujin Gaim merges with the sacred tree, he enters his Lotus Position (蓮華座 Renge-za) form, emerging from a giant lotus flower.
In this form, he has complete control over the tree, allowing him to send roots to attack, explosive petals, and seeds that transform into previously defeated Kaijin. For close up attacks, he can make the flower stem spin him around at high speeds.
This form, however, has a critical weakness: the tree itself. Damaging the tree also harms Bujin Gaim as well.
This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle.
He has the same arsenal as Kamen Rider Gaim, but with different colors.

Behind the scenes
- Bujin Gaim is the only Bujin Rider that is not physically identical to his counterpart.
- He is also the only Bujin Rider that doesn't serve a warlord.
- Among the Bujin Riders, only Bujin Gaim always being regarded as an independent rider of his counterpart.
- Bujin Gaim is the second doppelganger rider to be fought in a crossover movie, with the first being Nega Den-O.
- Bujin Gaim and the Priestess of Fate are somehow related to each other, but their relationship was never explained.
- Despite Bujin Gaim's guitar riff standby sound, his standard transformation phrases are a mix of Japanese words and English words instead of the pure English "Mr. [Adjective/Noun]" theme.
- Bujin Gaim is the first Gaim Rider to have a final form that does not involve a Lockseed, followed by the villain from the next Gaim movie, Kamen Rider Mars.
- Bujin Gaim's mouthpiece concept is later used for Kamen Rider Gaim's Jimber Arms.
- Along with Fifteen, Mars and Jam, Bujin Gaim resembles one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse from the bible that is described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible called the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ to Saint John the Evangelist at 6:1-8. In this case, Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim represents "Famine" because of his usage of the God Tree was causing drought to cripple the land of the Sengoku Period. Bujin Gaim also represents "Conquest", one of the original Four Horsemen, due to his plan involving killing the rest of the Bujin Riders and taking over Japan in a plan to rule.
