Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future (劇場版 仮面ライダードライブ サプライズ・フューチャー, Gekijō-ban Kamen Raidā Doraibu: Sapuraizu Fyūchā) is a Japanese superhero film that serves as the Summer Movie adaptation of Kamen Rider Drive, double-billed with Shuriken Sentai Ninninger The Movie: The Dinosaur Lord's Splendid Ninja Scroll!Icon-crosswiki.png. In the film, Shinnosuke is visited by his son from an apocalyptic future where humanity is ruled by Roidmudes. The film also features an early-bird appearance from Takeru Tenkuji, the titular protagonist of the series following Drive, Kamen Rider Ghost.

A four-episode companion miniseries aired weekly in preparation for the film's release.

The catchphrase for this film is "Is there hope in the future? Kamen Rider Drive was the "devil" who destroyed humankind." (未来に、希望はあるのか。仮面ライダードライブは、人類を滅ぼす〈悪魔〉だった。, Mirai ni, kibō wa aru no ka. Kamen Raidā Doraibu wa, jinrui o horobosu "akuma" datta.)

Continuity and Placement


After accidentally creating a big explosion, Shinnosuke Tomari is later visited by a young man claiming to be his son Eiji Tomari from the year 2035. Eiji warns Shinnosuke that a year from now, Mr. Belt's AI will go berserk and lead to the Roidmudes overtaking humanity. However, Shinnosuke cannot immediately deal with this new information when the evil Kamen Rider Dark Drive also comes from the future, causing enough mayhem that leads to Shinnosuke being framed for it and becoming the public's most wanted.


August 5th

A mysterious black car arrives through a wormhole revealing a enigmatic black Kamen Rider that resembles Drive as it dispatches three black shift cars throughout Downtown Tokyo. Two of the shift cars take on Roidmude forms as they hijacked a truck as the mysterious black car showed up with a police car and a monster-like construction vehicle driving from behind.

August 6th

The next day, Shinnosuke Tomari, Kiriko Shijima and Krim Steinbelt aka "Mr. Belt" are seen cruising in the Tridoron. Shinnosuke takes out an envolope that is specifically given to him and Kiriko by Krim telling him not to open it until August 8th. The trio respond to a police dispatch via radio communication as there is sightings of a Roidmude attack near downtown. As the opening title roles, Shinnosuke quickly transform into Kamen Rider Drive and is fighting the Roidmude with Tridoron equipped with the Ride Boosters. He then transforms into Drive Type Formula and is about to finish off the Roidmude until he is interrupted by a mysterious young man dressed in white shouting out to him, "Dad don't fire!" Confused at hearing someone calling him "dad," Shinnosuke tried to ignore the mysterious young man. When all of a sudden, Mr. Belt shouted out in a mysterious rage, "Shoot, SHOOT! Destroy everything!!" This triggered Drive into blasting a power plant causing collateral damage. Kiriko is then joined by her brother, Go Shijima as they try to figure out what is going on. Meanwhile, the Metropolitan Police delcares Shinnosuke Tomari as the culprit, and calls a warrant for his execution. The young man stated that he is too late to change the past and so he and Shinnosuke tried to run away knowing that they will be blamed for the incident. The two of them are attacked by the mysterious dark Rider, now revealed as Kamen Rider Dark Drive, who is targeting the young man but suddenly recognizes Drive as the father of Eiji Tomari. Shinnosuke tries to fight off Dark Drive but is having difficulties in battling his evil counterpart because Mr. Belt stated that he can't control the Drive Driver's functions. The mysterious young man appears driving the Tridoron rescuing Shinnosuke and evading the Dark Drive, alike a group of armed S.W.A.T. officers.

August 7th

Eiji tries to fix the problem with Mr. Belt, only for being killed by Dark Drive. Later, Chase joins Shinnosuke and Go for fighting the Future Type Roidmudes, one of them controlling an Astaco, which's destroyed by Chaser over the Booster Ride Crosser. Later, Drive and Mach proceed to fight against Dark Drive, defeating him. But later, Drive again gets out of control due to the problem with Mr. Belt, and almost kills Mach; but Shinnosuke discards the belt, and punches him, getting free from its control, and later destroying it with the Shingou-Ax. At that moment, Eiji comes back again, but he reveals he's actually the Roidmude 108, who after killing Eiji, he took his form, stolen his Drive Driver, and went to the past for fusionating with his other self. He proceeds to transform into Dark Drive, and plans to kill Shinnosuke, who's saved by Chase, who lends him his Mach Driver. Meanwhile, Kiriko tries to prove Shinnosuke's innocence, but the councilman rejects the idea of believing in them.

Later that night, Shinnosuke, hidden from Dark Drive and the police alike, opens and reads the letter from Mr. Belt.

August 8th

That day, Shinnosuke arrives at the place said by Mr. Belt in the letter, and discovers his amazing collection of cars. At that moment, he finds himself with Kiriko, who's desperate to prove his innocence. Suddenly, the place is attacked by Dark Drive, and both proceed to escape. Shinnosuke rides the Proto-Tridoron, but it gets destroyed. Shinnosuke tries to transform using Chaser's Signal Bike, but he can't, forcing him to use the Tridoron Key to transform into Drive Super Deadheat and fight the Roidmudes, destroying one of them.

Meanwhile, Kiriko arrives at the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department Head Quarters with the evidences about Roidmude 108, and everybody at the Unit decides to help Drive, but Shinji Koba tries to stop them, arguing that it couldn't contribute to their reputation. Enraged to tears by this, Kiriko confronts Koba, telling him about Shinnosuke's personality and duty as an officer. Later, a group of S.W.A.T. Officers appear to save Drive from a Roidmude, as Koba had changed his mind.

Drive arrives at the place where 108 tries to revive his past-self. Both transform and start to fight. Meanwhile, when a Roidmude started an attack, Kamen Rider Ghost appeared to destroy it, much to the astonishment of Kiriko and Genpachiro.

Drive is defeated by Dark Drive. When he was about to kill Shinnosuke, the actual 108 appeared. Both Roidmudes fused, turning into the Paradox Roidmude, who starts a new Global Freeze and proceeds to kill Shinnosuke. But Shinnosuke is saved by Go, who fights against Paradox. Remembering the Tridoron Key, Shinnosuke gets an idea; he recovers the Future Drive Driver, and using the Tridoron Key, he is successful in reviving Mr. Belt, who actually had this plan on mind. Shinnosuke transforms into Drive and fights Paradox, but is overwhelmed by the effects of Paradox's Heavy Acceleration. But, at that moment, Kiriko throws him Eiji's Shift Car, saving Shinnosuke, and he transforms into Drive Type Special. He fights Paradox again, and after attacking him, he destroys him with a Rider Kick.

Later, with Mr. Belt back again, and himself being exonerated, Shinnosuke talked with Kiriko about what happened. Just then, Shinnosuke remembers a thing said by 108 disguised as Eiji about his mother, making Shinnosuke realize his mother was actually Kiriko, which he thinks it is a joke.

The film's ending theme song is re-ray, performed by Mitsuru Matsuoka EARNEST DRIVE.


  • When Drive transforms into Type Tridoron Attack 1.2.3, the "Attack 1.2.3." sound isn't heard until Drive activates the Full Throttle function on his Shift Brace.
  • When Chaser used Across Breaker, the "Matteroyo" sound was completely omitted. Instead, the Shingou-Ax immediately said "Itteiyo" just after he pressed the Shingou Push Button.
  • When Go is knocked out of his Mach form, the Mach Driver mistakenly announces "Otsukare! (Good Job)".
  • When Drive Type Tridoron takes the Drive Driver off, his transformation did not disintegrate until he punches the Drive Driver to stop himself from hurting Mach.
  • Super Dead Heat Drive hits the Mach Driver Ignition only three times to enter the Dead Zone. Also, the Mach Driver doesn't announce "Burst" before "Chou Dead Heat".
    • Also, when Super Dead Heat Drive activates the Full Throttle function on the Mach Driver, the "Burst" before "Full Throttle" is omitted, but is present in the DX Toy.[1]
  • When the Ghost Driver does the transformation announcement for Ore Damashii, we don't hear the "Kaigan! Ore" part after "Batchiriminā" and before "Let's Go! Kakugo! Go Go Go! Ghost! GO! GO! GO! GO!"
  • When Ghost first appears, the close-up shot of the Ghost Driver shows the Ore Ghost Eyecon being missing from the driver. In its place is an empty spot which glows white.
  • When Shinnosuke transforms into Super Dead Heat Drive for the second time, despite Tridoron Key's "R" symbol, the transformation effect shows the "D" symbol, like Drive's and Mach's normal Dead Heat.
  • When fighting Paradox Roidmude, Drive does the Shift Up for Shift Speed 3 times, yet the Drive Driver announces it 4 times.
    • Also, in the final battle, Drive does the Shift Up for Shift Next Special (Special side) 4 times, despite it being not possible in the toyline which can only do it up to 3 times.
  • During Shinnosuke's transformation into Drive Type Special, when both Shinnosuke and holographic Eiji turn the Advanced Ignition on their Drive Drivers, the screen on both Drivers immediately display the word "Go" followed by Drive's "R" symbol, instead of displaying the zooming in-and-out circle animation normally shown before a Shift Car is inserted into the Shift Brace.


Four of Drive's Shift Cars appearing at the end of the closing credits.

  • Closing Credits Shift Car Collection
    • Shift Cars: Shift Speed, Shift Wild, Shift Technic and Shift Formula
  • Roidmude Count
  • Chase is not seen for the rest of the film after he gives Shinnosuke is Mach Driver. His whereabouts would be addressed in Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Chaser, which is set directly after the events of Surprise Future.
  • During Ghost's cameo debut in the movie, a unique variation of his emblem was seen during his arrival and during his Ghost Change into Newton Damashii. This emblem is never seen on him throughout the series, and instead was recycled for Kamen Rider Necrom's Omega Drive instead.
  • As the press conference for Kamen Rider Ghost had not yet occurred yet, Shun Nishime is left uncredited for his appearance.
