Encounter with Shiro Kanzaki
Masashi was a corrupt police detective, using his job to effectively cover up his illegal activities, disposing of any witnesses to his acts, he and Tomoyuki Kaga worked together and had their problems, until Tomoyuki Kaga's demand for a bigger cut in the profit made Masashi kill him, and hid his body in the antique store. At that moment he met with Shiro Kanzaki. It was at this time that Masashi accepted the request to join the Rider War and he had also been interested in being a Rider, playing a part in the disappearances as he feeds his victims to Volcancer.
Introduced in the Rider War
After Ryuki and Knight destroyed Megazelle and Gigazelle in the other part of the city, it can be seen that there are many posters of missing people in the city, getting to briefly see Masashi in the Antiques and Collection store for seconds in the mirror, showing his Kamen Rider Scissors's Card Deck.
Attacks in the antique Store & meeting Shinji
Masashi hiding in the shadows attacks to Reiko Momoi in the antique Store ,interfering in her investigation leaving her seriously injured, Masashi came out of the back of the store, hearing a cry for help to return again helping Reiko taking her to the hospital avoiding suspicions. In the Hospital Masashi meet Shinji Kido when he explains what happened in the attack in the antique store and the frequent disappearances of that antique store, assuring them that he would take care of that police case leaving the room.
Clash Against Ryuki
Masashi as Scissors in the mirror summoned Volcaner so that he kills and debris another victim when Ryuki enters in the mirror world Scissors and Volcaner attacks Ryuki outnumbering to Ryuki, dominating in the battle, until the moment Kamen Rider Knight appears interfering in the battle. With Knight knowing the Rider's name from Scissors, Scissors had no choice but to leave the mirror world.
Pretending to be an ally & tries to kill Shinji
Masashi encounters in the antique Store with Shinji scolding and saying not to meddle in their affairs since he would take care.
Deciding to take advantage of the boy's credulity, Masashi assumes an anonymous identity, to deceive Shinji, Masashi calls him on the phone to give him his name, Knight's human identity and Yui Kanzaki's address. With that, Masashi had Volcancer arrange an "accident" for Ren, while he personally attempted to kill Mirror World's own Shinji.
Scissors noticing that Shinji survived, Scissor invokes Scissors Pinch to start attacking Ryuki leaving him wounded, seeing that Ruiki counterattacks with Drageder, Scissors defending himself with his Shell Defense manages to get a little damaged by the attack leaving the Mirror World, to start the next phase of his plan.
Tries to kidnap Yui and clashed with Knight
When his previous plan failed, Masashi then tries to kidnapped Yui to use her relation to Shiro for his benefit. Starting a small chase with Ren, he managed to be cornered by Ren. He aimed to start a fight with Ren being interfered by Shinji, Masashi decides to fight Ren at another time. He leaves the place and goes to the hospital where Reiko was.
Crimes revealed and Battle against Knight
He later visited Reiko in a hospital, suggesting that Sudo is responsible for his attack and the mysterious disappearances of the other missing subjects. Two officers confronted Sudo, but he escaped into a mirror, cornered, and smiled as he called for his Volcancer to kill the officers. Masashi was confronted by Shinji, while Masashi revealed his intention to kill everyone who now knows the truth behind Kaga's murder and reveal his true intentions: to kill Shinji and Reiko and to also be the strongest Kamen Rider. He was about to transform into his Rider form to face a battle against Shinji until he was interfered by Ren.
Transforming into Kamen rider Scissors, in the mirror world, Masashi as Scissors faced a fierce battle against Ren as Knight. Scissors being affected by Knight's Nasty Vent counterattack, summoned his Scissors Pinch to try to win the fight, however received a strong thrust by Knight on his Card Deck. Ignoring the pain, Scissors tries to end the fight by using his Final vent, his Scissors Attack against Knight's Flyinglancer, apparently winning the fight.
Contract destroyed and eaten by Volcaner
Over the course of the battle, Ren managed to break Scissor's deck of cards. After using their final vents on each other, the scissors cover shattered, thus breaking his contract with Volcancer as the scissors armor began to fade. Volcancer immediately grabbed and pinned Scissors to his chest, devouring his master in a wry death by betrayal.
After his death
- "You should know very well what will happen"
- ―Ren remembering the moment when Masashi is eated by Volcaner.[src]
In the moment when Shinji lost Dragreder's advent card by Kamen Rider Gai, Masashi as Scissors, being eaten by Volcaner is seen briefly in Ren's flashback.
Time regression by the Odin's Time Vent
When Kamen Rider Odin uses the Time Vent against Ryuki, Knight, Zolda, and Ouja, all the events that happened were repeated in the Rider fight before Odin's appearance. Masashi is seen calling to Shinji, fighting against Knight and finally eaten by Volcaner again

- Resistance: 100 t. with Shelldefense[note 3]
- Maximum Jump Height: 35 m.
- Maximum Running Speed: 100 m. per 5 sec.
Masashi can transform into Kamen Rider Scissors using his Card Deck and V Buckle upon forming a contract with Volcancer. His Visor, the Scissorsvisor (シザースバイザー Shizāsu Baizā), is a claw-equipped gauntlet on his left arm that also functions as his personal weapon. Scissors' jumping height and running speed are identical to Ryuki's, but his kicking power is lower in exchange for a slightly higher punching power.
Through the use of his Strike Vent Advent Card, Scissors can arm himself with the Scissorspinch (シザースピンチ Shizāsu Pinchi), an arm-mounted claw derived from Volcancer's left pincer. His Guard Vent equips him with the Shelldefense (シェルディフェンス Sheru Difensu), a shield derived from the armor plating on Volcancer's back.
By using his Final Vent, Scissors can execute his finisher, the Scissors Attack (シザースアタック Shizāsu Attaku), in Volcancer launches Scissors into the air with its claws. Scissors then curls into a ball and rapidly spins in the air before crashing into the enemy.

Scissors Ridewatch (シザースライドウォッチ Shizāsu Raidowotchi): Based on Kamen Rider Scissors, this Ridewatch would provide access to the ScissorsArmor. It is dated 2002. This Ridewatch was one of the five winners of a poll held by Bandai to select Riders to be used in a five-pack of DX Ridewatches.
Behind the scenes
- Kamen Rider Scissors' design is also based on one of the the first Kamen Rider series' Shocker monsters, Kanibubbler.
- Also in the game Kamen Rider: Climax Heroes OOO and so on, if the player choose to play as Kamen Rider Scissors, Volcancer became his striker where it releases bubble projectiles from its mouth before ramming into the enemy, mimicking the said Shocker monster.
- Like other Riders in the war, Sudo died a fitting death: He fed people to Volcancer to strengthen it, only to die by being eaten by his monster.
- Though clearly being for selfish reasons, Masashi's specific motivation for entering the Rider War, his intended wish if victorious, is never actually stated.
- The full version of his Final Vent attack is never seen, a fact which is brought up in Let's Go Kamen Riders' net movie.
- Scissors is the first Kamen Rider to serve entirely as an antagonist.
