This article is about a/an video game in Kamen Rider Ryuki.

Kamen Rider Ryuki (仮面ライダー龍騎 Kamen Raidā Ryūki) is video game based on the Kamen Rider Ryuki series, developed by Digifloyd, edited/published by Bandai, and released in Japan in 2002, during the series airing, for the PlayStation. This is the last Kamen Rider video game released on PlayStation, after this, they would be released on PlayStation 2 until a certain time.

It is a basic fighting game where all 13 Kamen Riders are playable with all the forms seen in the show, movie and specials (with the exception of the Alternatives, Ouja's and Knight's Blank Form, seen respectively in Episode Final and Kamen Rider Art Collection Hero Hen, as well as any hypothetical Blank Forms. However, Ryuki's appears at the beginning of the Challenge Mode (it is actually unlockable, see unlockables below). Four of the Contract Monsters (Volcancer, Metalgelas, Destwilder and Gigazelle), the two Zebraskulls (Iron and Bronze) and Megazelle are also playable.

Gameplay

The game is a basic two-button fighter, with a strong () and light attack (), as well as a throw button (). The fourth button () however, is used to activate cards from the advent deck. One of the shoulder buttons ( R1 ) is used to cycle through cards, as well. Each card can only be used once per round, however.

When health reaches low for either character, the song "Hatenaki Inochi" will play, which would allow the character to use their Final Vent card on their weakened opponent. Monsters, however, have no cards and thus cannot use a finisher.

If the timer runs out (if a time limit is set in the options menu), the player with the most health wins the round automatically (he wins the stage if only 1 round is set in the options menu).

Riders each have their advent decks from the show, but what the cards do falls into one of a few categories.

Advents

Summons the user's contract monster. Advent card is one of the two undodgable and unblockable cards in the game when played. However, a button prompt will appear onscreen and rapidly pushing said button will recover health for the opposing player.

Strike/Sword/Swing/Shoot/Hold/Spin Vents

Summons a weapon, which lasts until an opponent cancels it with a special move/advent, or by knocking the user down. The weapon changes the user's moveset to match how it functions.

Guard Vents

Summons a shield, or cape, in the case of Knight. This also lasts until a special move or advent hits the user, or until said user is knocked down.

Unique Vents

Raia's Copy Vent copies an enemy's current sword or shield, Verde's Clear Vent renders him invisible save for when he attacks, Knight's Trick Vent is a card that functions like an Advent, but with lower strength.

Final Vents

The user's finisher, undodgable and unblockable like Advents, However, the opponent also receive the helpful button prompt. However, if it is not tapped sufficiently the receiver of the attack will lose the round. Notably, if you survive, you may than use your own Final Vent on your opponent.

The Trick Vent, Final Vents, and advents stop the game's timer, combined with how the game functions, it is entirely possible to defeat some opponents in less than 10 seconds.

Characters

The 13 Riders, Ryuki, Knight, Scissors, Zolda, Raia, Gai, Ouja, Tiger, Imperer, Odin, Femme, Verde, and Ryuga are all playable, However Ryuki and Knight's survive forms are secret characters, and the only characters not shown on the initial character select screen until unlocked.

Ouja, mimicking the show, has his own deck, Raia's, and Gai's to select from, as well as his Genocider deck, featuring all three of their weapons, and Genocider's advent/final vent cards.

The monster characters Volcancer, Metalgelus, Destwilder, Gigazelle, Megazelle, and the Iron and Bronze Zebraskulls, lack advent cards, but instead seem to have superior general strength as a form of compensation.

Gameplay Modes

The game features several gameplay modes,

1P Challenge mode

Acting as a tutorial of sorts and reenacting some fights from the show early on, it starts with Shiro Kanzaki giving Ryuki his advent deck, and contract card, and introduces the player to the card system, starting one card at a time, introducing each card in a fight with a brief voiced explanation, before letting you use all the cards in a battle with Ouja, whom it can unlock.

1P Battle mode

Essentially an arcade mode, you battle through eight rounds of opponents, This mode tends to end with a battle usually against either Kamen rider Odin or Ouja with his Genocider, and the corresponding advent deck. With the exception of normal Ouja and Ouja with Metalgelas as his final opponent will be Gai (Ouja normal) and Raia (Ouja-Metalgelas)

Winning at this mode with various characters unlocks several characters, as well as giving you several points which will be used for Card Memory game mode.

2P Battle mode

Two player battle mode for two people.

A card memory game

Bet your points from battle mode to find the card, each card is meant to be something from the show, and winning gives you said card for your collection. This mode can't be accessed after you obtained all cards and automatically unlock Knight Survive.

A card collection mode

The player can view cards of Riders and monsters and such from the show. There are eight cards per page, and eight pages, making a total of 64 cards.

Notes

  • The only Kamen Rider game to feature Ryuki Blank Form as an available character
  • Ryuki Blank Form's Sword Vent will not give any damage on the first attacking attempt and showing the sword would be snapped much like the original series. Shinji will scream "It's snapped!" just like in the original series. This will also happen to Raia if Raia uses the copy vent when Ryuki Blank Form uses his Sword Vent, Tezuka will scream in the same manner as Shinji.
  • The background of Kamen Rider Ryuki which featuring Ryuki and Knight will be replaced with their Survive Form once you unlocked each of their corresponding Survive form character.
  • Zolda's Strike Vent, unused in the show, is usable in this game.
  • Zolda has the most ingame cards as a playable character, with 6. 
    • Gai, Imperer, Tiger and Ouja (with his basic deck) however, have the least cards, with only 3.
    • Ryuki Blank only have Sword Vent, thus making the only rider without Final Vent
  • Despite Copy Vent being in the game, Verde isn't able to use it. 
  • Verde's Hold Vent acts as a long raged yoyo weapon rather than to bind opponents.
  • Volcancer's throw is an animation mimicking how it killed Scissors in the show 
  • Before Ryuki was adapted into Dragon Knight, this game was the only way to find out what Kamen Rider Odin's Final Vent looks like.
  • This game gave different performance on some riders whey they utilize their final vent:
    • Tiger has Destwilder to spin throw the opponent towards Tiger instead of dragging after stabbing it. Tiger will stab forward in reply of his Contract Monster has thrown.
    • Femme has Blancwing to crash on her opponent instead of throwing it with its wings. Femme will slash her opponent twice with her sword vent and resulting her opponent to be rebounded in front of her.
    • Imperer only summon one Gigazelle and crush his opponent by crashing it alongside Gigazelle from both opposite side with Spin Vent and Gigazelle's spear.
    • Odin will kick his opponents for times first before flying and crash his opponent by getting himself to be thrown by his Gold Phoenix.
    • Ryuga's Final Vent will end up having his opponent to roll backward for twice and kneeled before going down which is never happened.
    • Ryuki Survive and Knight Survive only crash on their opponent instead of shooting their opponent first.
  • Verde is the only rider who didn't make explosion after using his Final Vent.
  • Ryuga is the only normal Kamen Rider who gives an equal damage of Final Vent like Ryuki Survive and Knight Survive.
  • Odin was mistranslated as "Ordin" in the arcade ending.
