Kento Fukamiya (富加宮 賢人 Fukamiya Kento) is a former member of the Sword of Logos who initially transformed into Kamen Rider Espada (仮面ライダーエスパーダ Kamen Raidā Esupāda) before he was sealed away by the Ankokuken Kurayami's dark power. After being forced to bear witness to multiple timelines all leading to the world's destruction, he re-emerged from the darkness as the third Kamen Rider Calibur (仮面ライダーカリバー Kamen Raidā Karibā) in order to seal all the Seiken away and save the world.

History

Kento Fukamiya was born as the son of Hayato Fukamiya in the Wonder World. In his childhood, he was friends with Touma Kamiyama and Luna, who he was close with. During a major conflict 15 years ago, Kento faced the worst moment of his life; his father had betrayed the Sword of Logos, while Touma and Luna went missing.

Sometime later as an adult, Kento received the Raimeiken Ikazuchi from Sophia. An episode of Kamen Rider Espada

After Touma and Rintaro defeated both the Ant and Kirigirisu Megid, Kento arrived at the Fantastic Bookstore Kamiyama atop his magic carpet. He then greets his childhood friend Touma, though the latter has no recollection of him.Chapter 2: The Water Swordsman, Along With a Blue Lion.

Upon reuniting with Touma, Kento realizes that there are several things that Touma has forgotten; while he initially could not remember, Touma was able to remember a certain time with Kento. Chapter 3: A Father, and a Swordsman.

When Touma and Rintaro were attacked by Kamen Rider Calibur after their battle against the Hanzaki Megid, Kento suddenly appears as Espada, blocking the latter's Kurayami Iai before escaping. Chapter 4: I Opened the Book, Therefore.

Conflict Against Calibur and Sealing

During a battle against Daichi Kamijo, Kento is no match against Calibur Jaou Dragon and is defeated by his opponent. During their duel, Daichi claimed that Kento's father was indeed a traitor and was killed by him, although he did not reveal why he had the Ankokuken Kurayami with him. By the time Touma fully regained his memories and rushed to his childhood friend's side, Kento fell unconscious in the former's arms since he was greatly hurt by Daichi's attack.[1] Chapter 12: The Promise, in that Place.

Kento's "death".

Even after Touma acquired the power of Dragonic Knight and defeated Calibur Jaou Dragon, Kento was still left dying due to protecting his friends from Calibur's attack from earlier. Eventually, while surrounded by his fellow swordsmen, his body disappeared into dark miasma while his soul got sealed into the Ankokuken Kurayami.Chapter 13: I, Will Stay True, To My Convictions.

Trapped within Darkness

When he was trapped in the World of Darkness inside the Ankokuken Kurayami, Kento was forced to live through several timelines where the Seiken coming together resulted in the destruction of the world. This ultimately broke him as he repeatedly foresaw the same outcome, and he became determined to seal away all the Seiken to prevent the world's destruction.

Kento eventually broke free from his seal through unknown means, and became the new Kamen Rider Calibur, inheriting his father's power and sword. Initially, he appeared from a portal to stop Saber Primitive Dragon from continuing his rampage before immediately taking his leave. He did this a second time to protect Rintaro from the berserk Saber, but the shockwave of the Crash Hissatsu Geki canceled both of their transformations, with his identity finally revealed to his former fellow swordsmen.

Crusade Against Time

"I've returned to save the world from ruin. And to do that, I will seal every Seiken..."
―Kento, now the third Calibur, reveals his intentions.[src]

Kento's return.

Instead of a happy reunion, Kento revealed his intent to save the world by sealing away all the Seikens and declared that he was the only one to protect the world from danger, before teleporting away.

He would later be confronted by both Yuri and Reika Shindai, having foresaw the battle's outcome before it even began; Touma, Mei, Ryo, and Tetsuo eventually managed to catch up to them. After telling Touma that he never forgot about their promise with Luna, he would then disclose to everyone about his time in the World of Darkness, where he became determined to carry out his mission, disregarding any alternate approaches. Kento then told Touma that he would go berserk again, but no one will be hurt.

Kento then proceeded to defeat Tetsuo and seal the Onjuuken Suzune, before going for Ryo's Dogouken Gekido next. When Touma attempted to stop him in a fit of despair before Primitive Dragon took over, Kento took his leave once more. After leaving, Touma didn't go berserk for long and his transformation abruptly cancelled due to his sadness, showing how correct Kento's newfound foresight was.

The next day, Kento witnessed Legeiel Forbidden fighting the rampaging Saber Primitive Dragon, giving trouble to Yuri and Ryo. Kento foresaw that Touma would have his transformation cancelled soon, so he chose to not participate in the battle. However, Kento was surprised by a sudden change of events that Kurayami had failed to predict; while Touma did stop rampaging, his transformation was not cancelled and remained immobile. After Buster, Saikou, and Blades held Legeiel back, Kento witnessed the advent of Saber Primitive Elemental Dragon and the latter's victory over the unstable Legeiel. Even though the battle had ended, Kento remained resolute in his goal of sealing every Seiken, as he still followed Kurayami's beliefs that the world's destruction in the future was set in stone, regardless of the results.

He would later be found by Ren Akamichi, who enthusiastically asked him to fight together again. Kento, however, refused the offer and apologized to Ren as he seeks to seal Fuusouken Hayate. He succeeded in this endeavor only with one of Hayate's swords, but is then confronted by Touma again. Kento then stated to Touma that he returned from the darkness to fulfill what his father had intended to do, as he also see what his father vision is, in order to protect the world. He battles Saber Elemental Primitive Dragon, only to be defeated and then took his leave as he announces that he will fulfill his own mission, even if it will cost him his own life in return.

Rescuing Sophia

As Rintaro and Touma face the newly arrived Durandal, Kento took the chance to rescue Sophia and returns her to the Northern Base for currently unknown reasons.

Kento and Sophia then watches from a distance while Zooous continues to overpower Rintaro. He commented that he desires for the future to be saved, and that Rintaro's death will be beneficial towards it.

Personality

Kento is the childhood friend of Touma Kamiyama and was happy to have reunited with him, but was stunned to learn that that Touma had developed amnesia. Kento blames himself for what happened to both Touma and Luna in the past as a result of his father's betrayal despite Sophia saying it isn't his fault.

However, Kento is not without his dark side. After discovering that his father was not the current Calibur but Daichi Kamijo, the previous Saber, Kento was filled with fury when he did not receive an answer as to what happened to his father, and why Daichi has his father's powers. In the middle of his fight with Daichi, Rintaro protected Kento from being killed when injured, though he was near-fatally wounded. Due to this, Kento had regretted his actions during that time.

After experiencing multiple futures regarding the world's destruction through the Ankokuken Kurayami, Kento suffered a complete mental breakdown. As a result, he grew cold, bitter, and became determined to carry out his mission to save the world from its dark future. Even when Touma proved capable in altering the future, Kento remains adamant of the future being set in stone and refuses to change his mind. Unlike the previous wielders of Kurayami, Kento still maintains his heroic sensibility for the welfare, lives, and safety of others, especially for his former comrades of the Northern Base such as only sealing the Seiken away, and even guaranteeing that Primitive Dragon would not hurt anyone else. While refusing to be allied with Touma's team, Kento has exhibited some resistance towards the Southern Base's plans by rescuing Sophia and returning her to the Northern Base.

Ultimately, Kento's fatal flaw is his inability to be open with his inner conflicts, always attempting to resolve them on his own. This is shown when he recklessly fights Daichi Kamijo to find out why his father betrayed the guild, although this made him a candidate for Ankokuken Kurayami's corruption. This flaw continues to persists even after returning as the 3rd Calibur, though he was open to sharing the motives of his new mission to Touma.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Portal Creation: As Calibur, Kento can summon portals to travel between locations. This also allows him to travels in and out the place protected by Book Gate, such as where Sophia is held captive in Southern Base.
  • Seiken Sealing: Using the Ankokuken Kurayami, Kento can seal other Seiken. This was first demonstrated when he sealed Onjuuken Suzune. As the sword had sealed him away once, it is possible that Kento can seal humans away as well.
  • Precognition: Due to wielding the Ankokuken Kurayami, Kento is able to see visions of possible futures. This was first shown when he learned that uniting all of the Seiken would destroy the world while was trapped within the sword. He was also able to foresee his fight against Yuri and Touma. However, as these are simply collections of possible futures, his predictions can be (but can't always be) averted, such as when Touma obtained the Elemental Dragon Wonder Ride Book, and when Rintaro tapped into the full potential of his Seiken.

Abilities

  • Expert Swordsman: As a former member of the Sword of Logos, Kento is a trained swordsman, demonstrating his mastery at using Raimeiken Ikazuchi and later Ankokuken Kurayami when fighting his enemies or opponents.
  • Power Strain Resistance: Unlike Touma and Rintaro, Kento easily overcomes the power strain given by using 3 Wonder Ride Books.

Relationships

Allies

  • Luna: Kento's childhood friend. She was prepared to be sacrificed by Kento's corrupted father as the key to connect both Earth and Wonder World before she was trapped in the other world due to Touma being unable to save her.
  • Mei Sudo: Seeing that Rintaro was injured because of him, she criticizes his actions. Unlike Touma, Kento casually calls her Mei
  • Sophia: Kento's mentor and mystic of the Sword of Logos. After seeing Sophia along with Daichi, however, Kento misinterpreted things, thinking that he had to do with the disappearance of his father. He is the one who rescued her from the southern base.

Enemies

  • Enemies by force. These lists are Kento's enemies because he is forced to face them:
    • Touma Kamiyama/Kamen Rider Saber (II): Kento and Touma are childhood friends. According to Kento, a huge chunk of Touma's memories regarding Wonder World are missing. Yet despite that, Touma still cares and looks out for him as his friend. Touma little by little begins to recover part of his memories, remembering his time with Kento and Luna. After he returned as Calibur, Kento is influenced by the visions of the future shown by the Ankokuken Kurayami, becoming much more distant towards Touma in the process. However, he's still willing to explain his reasoning to Touma, and didn't forget about their promise to be together again with Luna. As a sign that he still care for Touma and the others, in one moment he told Touma that Primitive Dragon wouldn't hurt anyone which really happen.
    • Rintaro Shindo/Kamen Rider Blades: After seeing that Kento was desperate to find out what happened to his father and wanting to find Daichi for answers, Rintaro wants to stop him from doing something crazy, telling him that the Sword of Logos are family and should not act that way. Rintaro also sacrifices himself to save him from Daichi's attack, being seriously injured by that action. When seeing Kento was alive and was the new Calibur, Rintaro was surprised.
    • Ryo Ogami/Kamen Rider Buster (II): Kento and Ryo prove to have a close relationship due to the fact that Ryo was friends with his father. Although he still respects him following his defection, Kento is much more willing to hurt him and Daishinji if it means saving the world.
    • Ren Akamichi/Kamen Rider Kenzan (II): Fellow member of the Sword of Logos until Ren's defection to the southern base. Ren is surprised and overjoyed to find out that Kento was alive but is the new Calibur. Before Kento succeed on sealing his Seiken (only sealing one of the blades), Kento told him that he was sorry about it.
    • Tetsuo Daishinji/Kamen Rider Slash: Mechanic and fellow member of the Sword of Logos until Kento's defection. Although he still respects him, Kento is much more willing to hurt him and Ryo if it means saving the world. After Onjuuken was sealed, Kento didn't attack Tetsuo.
    • Yuri/Kamen Rider Saikou: Upon meeting Yuri, he decides to face Kento because Touma and the other swordsmen had doubt to face him, due to the relationship they share, except for him.
  • True enemies. Other than the previous Calibur, the rest are his real enemies because of the vision from Ankokuken Kurayami:
    • Hayato Fukamiya/Kamen Rider Calibur (I): Kento's father, who was believed to have betrayed the Sword of Logos which is confirmed by Daichi himself after the latter did kill him as he noticed that the Sword of Logos was the one who made Hayato corrupted and for him wanting to sacrifice Luna.
    • Reika Shindai/Kamen Rider Sabela: Reika is in charge of helping Kento in his fight against Calibur.[9] However, upon his return as Calibur, Reika sees him as an enemy.
    • Daichi Kamijo/Kamen Rider Saber (I)/Kamen Rider Calibur (II): He thought of him as his father Hayato Fukamiya, but Calibur couldn't care less about Touma or Kento. After learning that it is not his father but Daichi Kamijo, the former Saber, he wants to find out what happened to his father until he was defeated by Daichi as Kento's body disappears due to the effect of Jaou Dragon and Ankokuken Kurayami.
    • Master Logos: In one of many possibilities vision from Ankokuken Kurayami, Kento saw the current Master Logos as one of the real enemies to have the world destroyed.
    • Ryoga Shindai/Kamen Rider Durendal: Due to Ryoga's affiliation with Master Logos, this makes him Kento's real enemy.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Kento Fukamiya is portrayed by Ryo Aoki (青木 瞭 Aoki Ryō). As Kamen Rider Espada and Kamen Rider Calibur, his suit actor is Yuji Nakata (中田 裕士 Nakata Yūji) [10].

Etymology

  • As with the naming scheme of all the Saber Riders, Espada is named after the rapier, known to the Portuguese and Spanish as espada ropera, which literally means "dress sword", as it was often used as an accessory for clothing, either as fashion or self-defense.
  • As with the surname scheme of other members of Sword of Logos, Kento's surname, Fukamiya, contains a homophone of the kanji Kami () meaning "god" or "deity".
