For the series' main character, Gotchard, see Houtaro Ichinose.

Kamen Rider Gotchard (仮面ライダーガッチャード, Kamen Raidā Gatchādo) is a Japanese Tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series. It is the fifth series to debut in the Reiwa Era and the thirty-eighth overall. The series premiered on September 3, 2023, joining Ohsama Sentai King-OhgerIcon-crosswiki in the Super Hero TimeIcon-crosswiki lineup after the finale of Kamen Rider Geats. After King-Ohger concluded, Gotchard was joined in the Super Hero Time line-up by Bakuage Sentai BoonboomgerIcon-crosswiki on March 3, 2024. After the finale of Gotchard, Boonboomger will be joined in the line-up by Kamen Rider Gavv.

The catchphrase of this show is "Seize it! The greatest Gotcha!" (「つかめ!最高さいこうのガッチャー!」, Tsukame! Saikō nō Gatchā!).

The show's theme revolves around alchemy.


Development for the series began in April 2023, where the producers brainstormed multiple ideas, took inspiration from Kamen Rider J, wanted to make a "Agito 2", and, turned every trading card into a single Kamen Rider instead of mystical creatures. These ideas eventually coagulated into Gotchard. [2]

Toei Company confirmed and filed the trademark for Gotchard on May 22, 2023.[3] On July 3, 2023, a logo was trademarked.[4] On July 21, 2023, TV-Asahi updated their website with a visual and crew announcement. On July 28, 2023, Bandai showcased the DX Gotchardriver, new Ride Chemy Cards, and Gotchard's Appareskebow form.[5]

On August 6, 2023, Toei announced that longtime Rider suit-actor Eitoku would be the suit-actor for Gotchard.[6] On August 9, 2023, a full trailer was uploaded to the Bandai YouTube channel and a press conference took place revealing the core cast members, along with the general premise of the show.[7]


"Chemies: magical monsters created through Alchemy. When the seal on the Chemy cards is broken, fate rests on the shoulders of one young man!"
―Opening narration by Katsuyuki Konishi (episode 1-16).[src]

"The magical monsters known as Chemies, and the three young alchemists who obtained those Chemy cards. As the battle draws closer, they'll each hold on to their own dreams!"
―Opening narration by Katsuyuki Konishi (episode 17-onward).[src]

"Alchemy" is a pseudo-science that attempts to create "gold" from various different combinations. One experiment to do so artificially brings to life a race of creatures, and the story revolves around an era where these experiments were being conducted in secret.

In the story, the artificial lifeforms known as the "Chemy", made to imitate things that exist in the world such as grasshoppers, were created from the art of the best alchemy techniques. Each and every one of them were carefully stored in "Ride Chemy Cards' until they were accidentally released all at once into the wild.

Our main protagonist, Houtaro Ichinose, is entrusted with the Gotchardriver and the mission to recollect the Chemies that have been released into the world. Some are well suited for human companionship and if resonated with a good heart, Houtarou can fuse with them and transform into Kamen Rider Gotchard. However those that are influenced by human malice, there is a danger of them birthing monsters known as the Malgam. This is a story that explores the nature of good and evil, which are two sides of the same coin.

Will Gotchard be able to "collect them all", or will he let his carelessness mark the destruction of the world?
