"If Joker remains... the world will be destroyed... You are a fool."
―Kanai's last words to Tachibana before they both fall off a cliff to the sea.[src]

Kanai (金居 Kanai) is the human form of the Giraffa Undead (ギラフアンデッド Girafa Andeddo), the Category King of Diamonds Undead and the last of the Royal Club to appear in the series.

Posing as a human with eye glasses, he is the first Undead to learn the truth about the fake Undead battle and the last Royal Club Undead to be sealed, which his first scene has him explaining to Hikaru about while knocking Kenzaki out of transformation.A Desire to Get Stronger

Kanai eventually encounters Hajime, asking him to join him. Hajime refused and decided to fight him, with Kanai stating the futility in their fight before blasting at him to retreat. Leangle Revived

After his few observations of watching the Riders struggle with the Titan Undead and learning of Tennoji's goals, as Mutsuki was cycling with Nozomi right by his side, Kanai appeared before him, causing the Rider to go after and communicate with him. Mutsuki asked him if he was willing to coexist with humans, only for Kanai to respond how impossible that was. Then Kerberos appeared before them, with Mutsuki protecting Kanai. As Mutsuki fought the Undead, Kanai retreated to observe them. Later, he went to Tennoji and demanded the Kerberos card from him. Tennoji then transformed into Kerberos II, then claiming to Kanai that he became an Undead. Upon being defeated, Kanai fell down injured towards Tachibana and Mutsuki. When Kerberos II overpowered the two, Tachibana and Mutsuki retreated while taking Kanai with them. At Kotaro's house, Kanai discussed the whole situation with the others and how they'd plan on dealing with it. During the climax battle, Kanai saved Mutsuki as repayment for saving him earlier, motivating him to fight for their realization of peace. After Tennoji is defeated and demanded where he was, Kanai appeared before him. In his last rant for his desires, Tennoji shook him and demanded the Riders to seal him. In response, Kanai told him that he was the one getting "sealed", transformed into his Undead form, and slit Tennoji's forehead to his death, then claiming to Hajime that he was gonna be the victor. When Mutsuki questioned him in what he said to him was a lie, Kanai claimed that he was truthful, but with his version of peace being without people, right before injuring Mutsuki and taking his leave with the Kerberos card.

As Hajime was walking back home with Amane, Kanai was then shown to be at the area drinking coffee. At Hajime's room, Kanai blackmailed Hajime with the event of their fight tied to the death of Amane's father to finish the fight. At a forest, the two continued their duel, but with the Kerberos card, Kanai defeats Hajime and knocks him out of transformation. When Kenzaki decided to join in, Kanai also defeated him and then left. While still attempting to find Hajime so he could seal him, Kanai then encountered Tachibana, who then battled the him on his own, with his Garren Rouzer having no effect, and having his helmet broen. After being shot, his buckle opened, but Kanai flung the blank card to the waters. Kanai was eventually sealed as Garren grabbed him and both plunged off the cliff they battled on.Garren Eliminated
