"My predictions are never wrong."
―Tezuka on his fortune telling ability[src]

"When I made that prediction, the next Rider to go was actually you. But fate has changed."
―Tazuka revealing to Shinji that he was supposedly to die in his place according to his prediction.[src]

Miyuki Tezuka (手塚 海之 Tezuka Miyuki) is Kamen Rider Raia (仮面ライダーライア Kamen Raidā Raia), a fictional character in the tokusatsu production Kamen Rider Ryuki. He is one of the 13 Kamen Riders the series revolves around.


Kamen Rider Ryuki

He is a very accurate fortune-teller that believes in predestination. He fights to stop the Rider war and change their fates, similar to Shinji/Kamen Rider Ryuki, making him among the few honorable and noble Riders in the series. Though he was given the left Survive card, Tezuka gave it to Kamen Rider Knight, even though that could have made him stronger. Tezuka was not the original deck holder that was chosen to become a Rider. The real chosen one was Yuichi Saito, an excellent pianist and dear friend to Tezuka, who had lost his ability to play when a mugger (later revealed to be Takeshi Asakura) broke his hands and ruined his ability to play. Kanzaki later appeared before Yuichi to offer the restoration of his hands if he becomes a Rider, but Yuichi refused to sacrifice anyone's life and was eaten by the monster GuldThunder. Taking Yuichi's Card Deck, Tezuka later contracted Evildiver and became a Rider to honor his friend's decision by ending the Rider War.

While at a square performing Coin Fortune Telling, Tezuka notices Ren and reads his future before revealing himself as a Rider. Though he overpowered Knight but not intent on dealing the deathblow, Raia is shocked with Knight's suicidal counterattack. But after the fight, Tezuka tells Ren that he cannot win the Rider War because of the doubt in his heart. After seeing a vision of Knight being defeated by Kamen Rider Gai, Tezuka prods at Ren to know the truth behind him when he meets Shinji, who also intends to stop the fighting among the Riders. Tezuka aids Ryuki and Knight in dealing with Gai before he (Gai) is killed off by Ouja.

Changing Destiny

"At last...I changed fate..."
―Tezuka before his death[src]

Raia's death at the hands of Ouja

Raia died during a fight against Ouja. When Ouja performed his Final Vent against Ryuki, Raia pushed him out of the way and took the attack instead. He died shortly afterwards due to his wounds. Being a very accurate fortune teller, he knew Ryuki was the one to be killed and let himself take the blow instead. Before he was about to die, Tezuka sensed something off with Yui but he never got the chance to tell Shinji before dying in his arms.

Timeline reset

After Shiro restored time to its proper course after Yui's death, Tezuka was given a second chance in life with no memory of being a Rider and was seen doing tarot card readings on the corner of the street. Tezuka briefly encounters Shinji, telling him that misfortune was coming his way. Immediately afterwards, Shinji's bike was kicked by an annoyed Asakura, much to Shinji's dismay. A New Life

Behind the scenes


Miyuki Tezuka is portrayed by Hassei Takano (高野 八誠 Takano Hassei). As Kamen Rider Raia, his suit actor was Keizo Yabe (矢部 敬三 Yabe Keizō).

Miyuki's actor, Hassei Takano, previously portrayed Hiroya FujimiyaIcon-crosswiki.png in Ultraman GaiaIcon-crosswiki.png. He later portrayed as Katsuhiko Yano/Kamen Rider 2 in the movie Kamen Rider The First and Kamen Rider The Next.


Kamen Rider Raia's name and appearance are derived from the Latin word "Raia", which is used in the scientific terms for Rajiformes and Raja, the genera that relate to rays and skates.

Concept Art

Kamen Rider Raia concept art


  • Like other Riders in the war, Tezuka died an ironic death: he made predictions that were always right but sacrificed himself in order to prove his prediction wrong.
    • Another ironic death was in Rider Time Ryuki, Tezuka betrayed his team after falling in love with Jun, only to betray him also and dying from the wounds defensively inflicted by Gai. He also remembers his whole past with Shinji near-death but dies before he could apologize to Shinji.
  • Aside from Ryuki, Raia is the only one who has been a hero in both Ryuki's series and movies. (Knight and Zolda were once anti-heroes while Femme was a villain in 13 Riders.)
  • Raia is the first Rider in the franchise to be mostly magenta/pink.
  • Though Tezuka's sacrifice for Shinji is treated as his first prediction proven wrong, his earlier prediction of Ren's death by Gai (episode 15) was also proven wrong in episode 19, some time before Tezuka had predicted Shinji's demise.
