This article is about a/an villain in Kamen Rider Build.

Killbus (キルバス Kirubasu) is the former ruler of the Blood Tribe and the main antagonist of Kamen Rider Build NEW WORLD: Kamen Rider Cross-Z.[1]. After destroying his own planet, he spends an entire year looking for his young brother Evolto until he reaches Earth. Upon arriving, he takes the form of Sento Kiryu and steals his Build Driver, later opting for the appearance of Satoshi Kakizaki, who he later uses as his main host to transform into Kamen Rider Killbus (仮面ライダーキルバス Kamen Raidā Kirubasu).

Character History

Sometime before the start of the series, Killbus was responsible for the destruction of the Blood Tribe home planet, Planet Blood, as well as the one giving them orders to destroy other planets. Before the destruction of said planet, Evolto escaped with Pandora's Box in hopes of making sure Killbas doesn't find it, prompting the latter to search for Evolto.

After the World of Build was merged into the World of Kamen Rider, Killbus arrived via the White Pandora Panel and copies the appearance of Sento Kiryu and later Satoshi Kakizaki. Taking the Build Driver from Sento, Killbas obtains the means to transform into his Kamen Rider form, Kamen Rider Killbus , which is even stronger than Kamen Rider Evol. Killbus plans to restore the energy of the Pandora Box and use it to destroy the entire universe.

Later on, he fought Ryuga Banjou, and his brother, over the Pandora's Box. Due to the Box reappearing into the New World, everyone from the original World of Build got their erased memories back, excluding Sento and Ryuga as they had kept their memories during the transfer. Despite having the upper hand initally due to his rider form being stronger than Evolto, Ryuga assumed a new form, Cross-Z Evol, the fusion of his and Evolto's powers, later gaining the upper hand against him, and destroying him and the reconstructed Pandora's Box except for the original White Pandora Panel.

Personality

Killbus has a hedonistic personality and seeks pleasure from destruction, which led to the destruction of his own planet. He wishes to use the Pandora Box to destroy the entire universe, even willing to die along with it. He does not show any type of sibling care for Evolto, even willing to kill him just so he can have the Pandora Box all for himself.

Killbus seems to be more attracted to Satoshi Kakizaki, opting to take his appearance instead of the geeky Sento Kiryu.

Powers and Abilities

  • Hazard Level 3+: Killbus has a Hazard Level of at least 3, as shown by his use of the Build Driver. However, his Hazard Level is likely to be at least 5+ due to him being a member of the Blood Tribe and besting Evolto in battle. Throughout the film, he effortlessly defeats Ryuga, who has a recorded Hazard Level of 7, implying that Killbas may also have the same Hazard Level as well (or higher).
Killbas Liquid Form

Killbas liquifies himself.

  • Liquefaction: Like Evolto, Killbus can become a teal pool of liquid for transportation purposes.
  • Venomous Tentacle: Killbus possesses a tentacle that he can use to inject his opponent with a dangerous venom. This can be countered with the Genius Fullbottle.
  • Shape-Shifting: While his true form has not been revealed, Killbus can mimic any human due to being a member of the Blood Tribe. He first took the form Sento Kiryu before settling on the appearance of Satoshi Kakizaki.
  • Infusion: Killbus infused Sento's pet spider robot with his own genes in order to create the Killbuspider.
  • Fullbottle Creation: Killbus created the Killbas Spider Fullbottle using his own genes.

  • Killbus attaches strands of webbing to the enemy and throws them into the air before delivering a spinning heel kick.

This is also Build's second fastest form.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Killbus is voiced by Anri Katsu (勝 杏里 Katsu Anri), who previously voiced Roidmude 106/Thief in Kamen Rider Drive. When copying Satoshi Kakizaki’s appearance, he is played by Gaku Shindo (進藤 学 Shindo Gaku), who is best known for his role as BarizorgIcon-crosswiki from Kaizoku Sentai GokaigerIcon-crosswiki. As Kamen Rider Killbas, his suit actor is Yasuhiko Imai (今井 靖彦 Imai Yasuhiko)[4].

When copying Sento Kiryu's appearance, he is portrayed by Atsuhiro Inukai (犬飼 貴丈 Inukai Atsuhiro).

Notes

  • Killbus' spider motif finished the last part of the recurring bat/cobra/spider trio in the Kamen Rider franchise, a tribute to the first two Shocker monsters as well as the first monster to be upgraded, following Blood Stalk's cobra motif and Night Rogue's bat motif.
  • Killbus is the final movie-exclusive Kamen Rider to debut during the Heisei Era.
  • Like previous V-Cinema Exclusive Riders, Killbus is made up of recycled parts from previous Rider suits. His helmet uses elements of Night Rogue/MadRogue's helmets, the shoulder and gauntlet parts are from Blood Stalk, bicep armor taken from either Blood Stalk, Night Rogue or MadRogue, as well as the standard Kamen Rider Build leg armor parts.
  • Kamen Rider Killbus' general design also feels reminiscent of Kamen Rider Saver, albeit vaguely. Both feature a primarily red color scheme, and Killbas is seen dual-wielding a sword and a bow-and-arrow weapon. The latter may only be applicable to a single scene, however.
