"Good to see you guys. Taking care of all of you...is also part of my job."
―Leo as he encounters the renegade Orphnochs[src]

Leo (レオ Reo) is Kamen Rider Psyga (仮面ライダーサイガ Kamen Raidā Saiga, Masked Rider Psyga), a character exclusive to the movie adaptation of the Kamen Rider Japanese television series, Kamen Rider 555. It was the 5th Rider Gear produced for Kamen Rider 555, and appeared in the movie Kamen Rider 555: Paradise Lost.

History

Kamen Rider Faiz

Lost World

After Kyouji Murakami (Rose Orphnoch) was decapitated by Takumi Inui's Kamen Rider Faiz Blaster mode, his head is rolling about when the Lion Orphnoch picks it up. Murakami asks him to bring him back to the Smart Brain headquarters, and to recover Delta’s belt at the same time: They’ll be using it to make the “Emperor’s Belts”. The Lion Orphnoch (seemingly a foreigner) speaks in broken Japanese, stating that he will do it on the condition that he utilizes one of the belts. Accepting this offer, Murakami promises Leo the Belt of the Sky, the Psyga Driver.

Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost is considered as a continuation of an alternate ending, in which Smart Brain and the Orphnochs have won the war. In the near future, Smart Brain has accomplished its goal of world domination - with 90% of Earth's population being Orphnochs while the human race is diminishing to near-extinction. Takumi Inui - a.k.a. Kamen Rider Faiz - was regarded as mankind's savior until he was presumed killed during an attack by Smart Brain's Riotroopers. Murakami then discloses the existence of the Emperor Belts by introducing the Orphnoch Leo, who changes into the powerful Kamen Rider Psyga.

He was given the Psyga Gear by the Smart Brain corporation, allowing him to transform into Psyga. As Psyga, he is under the personal supervision of the Rose Orphnoch, Kyouji Murakami. When Yuji, Naoya and Yuka approach the Human Liberation Army and notify them of Psyga's power, Paradise is suddenly invaded by Riotroopers. During the attack, Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa battles Psyga, but is quickly defeated and killed. Psyga attempts to take the Kaixa Belt, but he is warded off by the three Orphnochs allied with the humans. Later, Kamen Rider Psyga attacked and abducted Mari, then taking her into the city to be executed. Takumi barged into Tokyo's indoor sports stadium to rescue Mari from the Elasmotherium Orphnoch. As Faiz, Takumi had a difficult time defeating the Elasmotherium Orphnoch. While the Auto Vajin helped, the robot was ultimately destroyed in the battle. As Faiz was attempting to kill the Elasmotherium Orphnoch with a Crimson Smash, Psyga appeared and forced him out of the stadium with his Flying Attacker.

Faiz vs Psyga

Leo last moments

Once outside, Faiz switched to Axel Form for high-speed combat. He was able to chase down Psyga and damage his Flying Attacker before reverting to Faiz form. Psyga switched to melee combat with his Psyga Tonfa Edges and the fight dragged back into the stadium. Mari was watching the fight as well and Psyga charged at Faiz, his Tonfa glowing as his finisher, Psyga Slash was initialized. Mari threw Faiz his Faiz Edge for a counter-attack, with the rider setting the Mission Memory in time for the Sol Glass to extend to deflect his opponent's right blow, and re-directed the weapon right onto the Psyga Driver. Not letting up, Faiz quickly hit the Enter Button on his Faiz Phone when the blow stunned Psyga, completing the Sparkle Cut to vaporize the opposing Rider and his Gear.

Rider Statistics

Rider Senses:

Ability Parameters:

Kamen Rider Psyga exists in a world where the Orphnochs have taken over the planet and the humans are slowly being exterminated. The Psyga Gear was recorded as the fifth Rider Gear created by Smart Brain, after the Faiz, Kaixa, and Delta Gears were stolen by the humans and the Riot Trooper gear had undergone mass-production. Created alongside the Orga Gear, the Psyga Gear is regarded as a "perfect" gear, and therefore it can only be worn by Orphnochs. Psyga appeared to be as fast and strong as the existing gears, matching Kamen Rider Faiz Axel Form for speed and Kaixa for strength. Because the weapons appear once the armor is formed and were created based on trial data from the previous gears, it possesses much greater functionality and ability than the previous riders.

Kamen Rider Pysga's finishing attack is called the Psyga Slash (サイガスラッシュ Saiga Surasshu) in which the Psyga Tonfa Edge glows purple,in whick is execute a attack that seriously damage the enemies.

Armor Information The Psyga Armor has several key features in its design. Unlike the Gear, the armor does not exist until the wearer transforms.

  • Full Metal Lung: The vest part of the armor of the Rider provides the most protection, being able to withstand Anti-tank weaponry.
  • Psyga Core: In the center of the Full Metal Lung is a large glowing purple dome. This serves as the heart for the Photon Blood.
  • Global Feeler: The antenna on the Rider’s head can be used as a radar or to communicate with the Smart Brain Satellite and the Smart Brain computer network.
  • Photon Blood: A glowing blue plasma substance that provides all of the Rider’s powers and generates all of the physical features of the armor. The Photon Blood is generated from the Psyga Driver. On a note, the Psyga Gear produces two times more Photon Blood than Faiz usually do.
  • Photon Streams Ver. 2: The path that the Photon Blood travels through the Rider’s armor. This advanced version of the regular "Photon Streams" was installed in the Emperor Belt in order to better deal with the great amount of "Photon Blood" that the Gear produces. Psyga's path is blue and follows an irregular pattern (unlike the other gears) which gives Psyga's "Photon Streams" a light resemblance with real blood veins.
  • Photon Terminals: Where the Photon Streams connect with the gauntlets and greaves, the source of punching power.
  • Luna Foam/Metal: Soft parts of the armor are made of Luna Foam, and the hard parts are made of Luna Metal. This substance is generated by the Psyga Driver to form complex machinery that is powered by Photon Blood. If the Foam or Metal are damaged, the armor switches off and resets itself. Aside from being white in color, Luna Foam and Metal don't seem to differ too much from Sol Foam and Metal.
  • Sky High Finder: The large eyepieces of the Rider give them incredible vision. They can see far distances or the in darkness with no problems and have limited X-ray vision.
Appearances: Paradise Lost, Decade Episodes 1-2, 17, 31 (Special Version), Heisei Generations FOREVER (as a toy).

Equipment

  • Lion Lance: His Lance is his principal weapon against his opponents.

Concept Art

Notes

  • It is not stated in the film which Orphnoch Leo is: in the S.I.C Hero Saga prequel story Lost World, he is the first Lion Orphnoch (a different character is the second Lion Orphnoch in the film).
  • Leo mainly speaks English with an American accent, but very rarely spoke Japanese, like the traditional "Henshin" call for Kamen Riders. Leo's actor, Peter Ho, is in fact an American born raised in Taiwan and Canada.
    • Excluding American adaptation Kamen Riders, Leo remains the only Kamen Rider in the franchise who mainly speaks English.
  • In Kamen Rider Decade, Kamen Rider Psyga was summoned by Kamen Rider Diend to battle Kamen Rider Kabuto. When he is summoned he first says "It's Show Time!" (イッツ・ショウタイム! Ittsu Shō Taimu!). A slight variation of this phrase would later be given to Kamen Rider Wizard, eight years after 555 finished its run.
  • Leo is one of the many 555 Riders that don't have A.R World counterpart.
  • Out of all Original Riders that returned in Decade, he's one of the so many already deceased Movie Riders to make a return in Decade.
  • Leo share some similarities with Yuji Kiba (TV series).
    • Both are Kamen Riders and Orphnoch.
    • Both are affiliated to Smart Brain.
    • They both faced off Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa and ended up killing him.
