|This article is about a/an Rider in Kamen Rider Zero-One.|
- "I am a Humagear, but not a tool!"
Naki (亡 [なき] lit. "Death") is a System Engineer-Type Humagear and a founding member of MetsubouJinrai.net. They originally worked for Gai Amatsu, but was destroyed and had their consciousness uploaded into the A.I. chip implanted in Isamu Fuwa, sharing his ability to become Kamen Rider Vulcan (仮面ライダーバルカン Kamen Raidā Barukan).
Naki was originally a System Engineer-Type Humagear that was created and manufactured by Hiden Intelligence, but Gai Amatsu & ZAIA Japan erased Naki's memories. 12 years ago, Naki, alongside with Horobi, Jin, and Ikazuchi were hacked by the newly activated Ark and created MetsubouJinrai.net, with their goal to wiping out humanity aligning with The Ark's own. Horobi and Jin were re-activated in Daybreak Town, and Ikazuchi, as Raiden, was assigned to maintain Satellite Zea by Hiden Intelligence while secretly acting as MetsubouJinrai.net's sleeper agent.
As for Naki, they would remain active, working under Gai Amatsu and providing him with intel. They also recovered an additional Forceriser and gave it to Horobi, who then used it on Jin so that he could transform into a Kamen Rider. As Project Thouser neared completion, Naki slowly began to disagree with Gai, leaking information about the Gigers to Horobi and giving him the Amazing Hercules Progrisekey. After Naki meets up with Gai again, questions his belief that Humagears are tools and how Humagears can co-exist with humans in peace, he suddenly shoots them with a revolver and kills them for their defiance. Naki's A.I. is somehow preserved and is installed into Isamu Fuwa's A.I. chip some time after his defeat and near-death experience by Horobi.
Creating the Raiders
While controlling Isamu, Naki appeared and stole both a Raidriser and the Crushing Buffalo Progrisekey from ZAIA Japan during the Flower Arrangement Challenge. Naki approached Rentaro Tachibana and put the Raidriser on his waist, while also giving him the Crushing Buffalo Progrisekey so he could get his revenge on Sakuyo Ichirin. Although Isamu questioned Horobi, he simply hinted it is the work of a "deceased" comrade of his.
Next, Naki were seen approaching Tatsumi Arayashiki, who was unaware of their presence, and put a Raidriser on his waist while suggesting he use the Splashing Whale Progrisekey to get his revenge on Smile Sumida.
Although Naki was not seen again after the rampage of the Splashing Whale Raider, Naki likely gave the Raidriser and Dynamaiting Lion Progrisekey to Masuji Narusawa, as well as the Storming Penguin Progrisekey to Teruo Nikaido off-screen.
Freeing Horobi and Aiding Thouser
After Jin was restored, he and Naki, while controlling Isamu, infiltrated A.I.M.S. and freed Horobi, with Naki working to deactivate the surveillance cameras. While Jin returned with Horobi to Daybreak Town, Naki did not follow them.
It was later revealed that due to an A.I. chip implanted into Isamu's head, Naki has been controlling Isamu's body, interacting in the real world through him, creating Raiders and aiding Jin in freeing Horobi.
While Isamu was struggling with trauma and denial after learning the truth, Naki controlled him as Vulcan Assault Wolf, as they interrupted the duel and helped Thouser in defeating Zero-One.
Retaliation against Thouser
During an assault on HIDEN Manufacturing, Yua snagged Isamu's Shotriser, forcing him to transform into Vulcan Assault Wolf, and made Naki forcibly resurface to attack Delmo, a fashion model Humgear. While Zero-One fought the Naki-controlled Vulcan, Jin showed up in the nick of time, and was quick to take them away to Daybreak Town in MetsubouJinrai.net's base.
Later on, Naki made their way to the fashion show site where they are recognized by Aruto and Izu. They desperately ask Izu to tell them whether or not Humagears could have dreams. Izu, Delmo and Aruto all tell them that having a dream was fine, with Aruto telling them that Humagears were not tools.
As Naki contemplates on Aruto's words, Isamu manages to take control again. Due to a mishap later on, Isamu was captured by Horobi and Jin while looking for Delmo, again making Naki resurface. Standing alongside Thouser and the Fighting Jackal Raider, Gai ordered the Naki-controlled Vulcan to destroy Zero-One.
However, Naki remembered Aruto and Jin's kind words, and resolved to find a dream of their own despite not fully understanding what that means. At the same time, they vowed to help other Humagears pursue their own dreams. Syncing their consciousness with that of Isamu's, they put their differences aside and work together to beat back Thouser.
While Isamu was thinking about Gai's words about his false past of the Daybreak Town Accident, Yua Yaiba, now defected from ZAIA Japan, showed up and, after talking a little about Isamu's true past, knocked him out with a chop to the neck. At MetsubouJinrai.net's base, Yua worked to remove Naki from Isamu's A.I chip (and even knocked him out again with the same trick), though Jin was unsure if Isamu would survive the extraction process. When the process was completed, Naki, now in a new physical body, restated their loyalty to MetsubouJinrai.net.
Azu's Singularity Test
to be added
Becoming a Kamen Rider
After all members of MetsubouJinrai.net assemble, The Ark (while in Jin's body) creates the Japanese Wolf Zetsumerisekey and a new Forceriser, with the satellite giving both items to Naki. Naki then encounters Gai Amatsu in Hiden Intelligence's parking lot, showing the Dodo Zetsumerisekey in their possession. Surprised by this, Gai demanded that the Zetsumerisekey was to be returned to him immediately, but was stopped by Ikazuchi. They then transform into Kamen Rider Naki for the first time, and used their speed to tear Gai's clothes apart, as the latter didn't know about the existence of a new Zetsumerisekey. Naki also explained to Gai about the rise of the Ark, before they and Ikazuchi left the building.
Later, Naki and the other members of MetsubouJinrai.net came together face-to-face with Gai and the Battle Raiders after they rendered the entire A.I.M.S. squad unconscious. They then all transform to battle both Gai and Battle Raiders, defeating them with ease.
After the war between humans and Humagears was successfully averted, Naki was invited by Yua to join A.I.M.S., to which they accepted. They were later introduced to their fellow members as their latest member, as well as their second Tech Advisor.
Video Game appearances
Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing
Kamen Rider Naki is a playable character in Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing alongside with many other Kamen Riders.
- "Fuwa's futon has flown away softly. (不破の布団がフワッとふっ飛んだ。 Fuwa no futon ga fuwatto futtonda.) Yes. It must be Aruto."
- ―Naki telling one of Aruto's jokes[src]
After Naki's revival, they seemed to be fully dedicated in exterminating humanity, in accordance to the Ark's will. But despite this, Naki seems to show appreciation to their host Isamu and Yua for removing the A.I. from him and switching it to a Humagear body, and shows their gratitude by imitating one of Aruto's jokes to Isamu, which (to Yua's surprise) makes him laugh uncontrollably.
- ZAIA Japan Server Access: After their revival, because they served Gai Amatsu before being shot dead by him, they know the systems of ZAIA Japan extremely well, thus having the ability to hack the network of all the systems that ZAIA Japan uses for their products and weapons, such as making ZAIASpec users go berserk. Gai tried to prevent this from happening again by upgrading the security of ZAIA Japan's systems, but this later proved futile by Naki's hacking ability once more when all of the Battle Raiders and Gigers either stopped functioning or turned against him.
- "Forcerise! Japanese Wolf! Break down."
- ―Transformation announcement[src]
- Rider Height: 191.5 cm
- Rider Weight: 94.2 kg
- Punching Power: 26.2 t
- Kicking Power: 51.6 t
- Maximum Jump Height: 33.7 m
- Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 2.0 seconds
In this form, Naki is skilled at electronic warfare and invasion/disturbance by hacking, and demonstrates their true value in solo operation actions. They can also destroy targeted enemy sensors in order to sneak up on them. In battle, they use the agility of the Japanese wolf to perform a series of attacks, and the arms are equipped with four-bladed claws called the Nihon Ookaminotsume (ニホンオオカミノツメ lit. "Japanese Wolf Claws”).
However, with the exception of maximum jump height, this form is actually weaker than Vulcan Assault Wolf in terms of kicking power, but has equal running speed. It is still able to match Thouser without much effort regardless. Whlie its punching power is slightly stronger, Naki usually uses the Nihon Ookaminotsume more than punches.
Naki lost access to this form when the Japanese Wolf Zetsumerisekey was destroyed alongside the Shotriser after they lent it to Isamu.
Kamen Rider Naki's suit is composed of the following parts:
- Japanese Wolf Head (ニホンオオカミヘッド Nihon Ookami Heddo) - The helmet.
- Japanese Wolf Ear (ニホンオオカミイヤー Nihon Ookami Iyā) - Naki's extended hearing sensor. It has an excellent tracking function by sound pattern detection, and can capture up to 16 targets simultaneously within a radius of 7km.
- Japanese Wolf Goggles (ニホンオオカミゴーグル Nihon Ookami Gōguru) - Naki's facial armor. The armor that protects the face is equipped with a visual device and a hearing device to enhance its high-speed fighting ability.
- Japanese Wolf Signal (ニホンオオカミシグナル Nihon Ookami Shigunaru) - The control device. The system operation status of the whole body is monitored from time to time to control energy allocation. Further, when the shock or the damage accumulated exceeding the expected damage level exceeds the limit, the wear is absorbed by releasing the wear to protect the wearer.
- Crest Server (クレストサーバ Kuresuto Sāba) - The memory device. Has the role of collectively storing and managing data. The built-in data is converted by a special encryption technology, but a mechanism that destroys the stored data when it is physically separated works. This keeps the secret even if the enemy destroys it.
- Japanese Wolf Scope (ニホンオオカミスコープ Nihon Ookami Sukōpu) - The visual device. By switching modes such as shading and night vision, the visibility is secured under all circumstances. In addition to this, it has a function of visualizing electromagnetic movements, and makes it clear where traps are by recognizing movements and movements that are originally invisible such as radio waves.
- Hearing Back (ヒアリングバック Hiaringu Bakku): Naki's hearing device. Hearing information is communicated to the wearer through the Restraint Cables.
- Main Blocker (メインブロッカー Mein Burokkā) - The chest armor. The data image Lost Model (ロストモデル Rosuto Moderu) of the extinct species that is overloaded is forcibly installed. In addition to the structure with low observability, it gives the wearer the high agility of the Lost Model of the Japanese wolf. This makes it possible to perform covert actions alone, including invasion of bases and sabotage.
- Lazarotech Suit (ラザロテックスーツ Razarotekku Sūtsu): Naki's base suit. It protects the user from corrosive liquids with a special fabric called Texta Wall (テキスタウォール Tekisuta Wōru) that has extremely low breathability and permeability. It also keeps the internal pressure higher than the external pressure by being airtight. In addition, its materials have high insulation and it has the role of preventing malfunction of internal equipment due to the intense blizzards that Naki produces.
- Howling Echo (ハウリングエコー Hauringu Ekō): The compound communication device. A collection of powerful electronic devices that can simultaneously operate a large number of radars, communication devices, and sensors to collect all kinds of information. In addition, it can be wirelessly connected to various external devices and can be operated by hacking. In addition, by utilizing the special electromagnetic wave control ability, and analyzing the types of electromagnetic waves used by the target, they are good at electronic attacks such as disruption of radar waves and communication, deception of sensors and misidentification of targets.
- Force Arm (フォースアーム Fōsu Āmu): Naki's arms. By receiving the energy generated by the MetsubouJinrai Forceriser, the wearer's strength is increased by approximately 4.8 times.
- Force Grab (フォースグラブ Fōsu Gurabu): The Lazarotech Suit's gloves. They increase grip strength and tactile sensitivity by a factor of approximately 3 by receiving the energy generated by the MetsubouJinrai Forceriser. In addition, the fingertips are protected by sharp armor and function as a blizzard release device supplied by the Arm Stranger.
- Force Leg (フォースレッグ Fōsu Reggu): Naki's legs. By receiving the energy generated by the MetsubouJinrai Forceriser, the wearer's leg strength is increased by approximately 6.4 times.
- Chain Blocker (チェインブロッカー Chein Burokkā): Naki's segmented body armor. The "Lost Model" of the overloaded Zetsumerisekey is forcibly attached to it. By protecting the parts of the body that are subject to impact with thick armor and cutting unnecessary armor, the total protection capacity is maximized while at the same weight. The Chain Blocker's arrangement allows it to easily move according to the wearer's movements.
- Arm Stranger (アームストレンジャー Āmu Sutorenjā): Naki's arm armor. The Lost Model of the overloaded Zetsumerisekey is forcibly attached to it.
- Leg Stranger (レッグストレンジャー Reggu Sutorenjā): Naki's leg armor. The Lost Model of the overloaded Zetsumerisekey is forcibly attached to it. It protects the legs and improves running speed and kicking power. In addition, by utilizing the strength of the armor, it enables activities in extreme environments that humans cannot set foot in.
- Restraint Cable (レストランケーブル Resutoran Kēburu): Cables running through all parts of the body that transmit energy and information from the MetsubouJinrai Forceriser. In addition, taking advantage of their high toughness and ability to expand and contract freely, they have the role of constraining the utilized Zetsumerisekey's Lost Model and tightly binding it to the wearer.
This form has two finishers:
- MetsubouJinrai Forceriser finishers:
- Zetsumetsu Dystopia (ゼツメツディストピア Zetsumetsu Disutopia): Naki runs to the enemy and performs a series of rapid kicks, followed by a single, stronger kick after a brief pause.
- Zetsumetsu Utopia (ゼツメツユートピア Zetsumetsu Yutopia):
- "Shotrise! Ready, go! Assault Wolf! No chance of surviving."

Assault Wolf (アサルトウルフ Asaruto Urufu) is Vulcan's super form accessed by using the Assault Wolf Progrisekey with the Assault Grip attached in the A.I.M.S. Shotriser. Naki uses this form while possessing Isamu Fuwa.
In this form, Vulcan has higher punching power and running speed than Zero-One Shining Hopper, but marginally lower kicking power and significantly lower jump height. In addition to physical strength, the armor covering most of Vulcan's body gives them remarkable defense, allowing them to withstand Ikazuchi's attacks without flinching.
Naki lost access to this form after their A.I was extracted from Isamu's A.I chip and transferred into a new body.
Assault Wolf is composed of the following parts:
- AW Head (AWヘッド AW Heddo) - The helmet.

By invading the network, it collects video data from reconnaissance satellites, security cameras in the facility, AI-equipped devices such as Humagear. As a result, every place can have its own field of view.
- Zero Face Ear (ゼロフェイスイヤー Zero Feisu Iyā): The voice information collection device. In addition to the auditory sensor that boasts a sound collection range of 10 km in radius, it will collect voice data from communication devices such as mobile phones and AI-equipped devices such as Humagear by entering the network. By filtering the collected data, any sound can be extracted and heard.
- Zero Face Antennae (ゼロフェイスアンテナ Zero Feisu Antena): The single antennae. The directionality is changed according to the environment, and a smart antenna that can simultaneously send and receive multiple types of enormous information, such as communication with various electronic devices and radar function, is adopted. In addition to hacking various electronic devices from here, human control is performed using special interference waves that manipulate brain waves.
- Ark Signal Zero (アークシグナル ゼロ Āku Shigunaru Zero): The red gem on the forehead. A control device for the Ark-Zero system. The forced interruption program "Prisonment Chain" (プリズメントチェイン Purizumento Chein) checks the operating efficiency and malfunctions by intervening in the control system of the human gear under control, and makes adjustments as necessary to bring out the limits of the functions.
- Zero Chest Gear (ゼロチェストギア Zero Chesuto Gia): The chest armor. It possesses the Worm Terminal (ワームターミナル Wāmu Tāminaru) and the Restraint Cable (リストレントケーブル Risutorento Kēburu) that can penetrate into various devices with excellent penetrating power, allowing it to create a bypass path with a controlled Humagear. As a result, the efficiency of information transmission and the energy flow rate can be increased to enhance the function of the human gear from the inside.
- Zero Tector (ゼロテクター Zero Tekutā): The powered bodysuit. Similar to Kamen Rider Zero-One's MetalCluster Hopper "Amalgamate Tector", the Zero Tector is formed by enclosing the target with liquid metal released from the Ark Driver-Zero. The special metal possesses excellent toughness and wear resistance is filled with fluid metal as it is, and functions as armor while maintaining flexibility.
- Zero Shoulder Gear (ゼロショルダーギア Zero Shorudā Gia): The shoulder armor. One miniaturized particle accelerator is mounted on each shoulder. Each group shares the nuclei and electrons, accelerates to sublight speed, and supplies them to the "zero hand gear" of the hand part to form a part of the heavy charged particle cannon.
- Marchinis Arm (マーキニースアーム Mākinīsu Āmu): The arms. It possesses the power cable "M string" (Mストリング M Sutoringu) from the Zero Tector is stretched around like a human nerve, and forcibly controls the arm of HumaGear from the outside. As a result, it becomes possible to exhibit high motility that exceeds the potential of the human gear placed under control.
- Zero Hand Gear (ゼロハンドギア Zero Hando Gia): The gloves. The sharp armor of the fingertips "Spite Nail" (スパイトネイル Supaito Neiuru) has the function of generating attractive force by partially reversing the barrier deployed from the "Zero Thigh Gear" of the thigh, and strongly adsorbing all objects. Also, the irradiation shaping machine "Beam Equipper" (ビームエクイッパー Bīmu Ekuippā) is equipped on the palm, and various data such as attach weapons are materialized by modeling beam. In addition, this irradiation port can be used as a part of a heavy charged particle cannon that emits in a beam shape by synthesizing electrons and nuclei supplied from the Zero Shoulder Gear.
- Zero Thigh Gear (ゼロサイギア Zero Saigia): The thigh armor. An energy barrier generator "Coulomb Generator" (クーロンジェネレーター Kūron Jenerētā) is built in and forms a coulomb barrier generated by manipulating electric charges on the armored surface of the whole body. This allows the physical attack to be dispelled by repulsive force.
- Marchinis Leg (マーキニースレッグ Mākinīsu Reggu): The legs. The power cable "M-string" of the powered suit "Zero Tector" is stretched around like a human nerve, and forcibly controls the leg of the human gear from the outside. This makes it possible to activate a special move that boasts an astonishing destructive power that exceeds the potential of Huma Gear placed under control.
- Zero Shin Gear (ゼロシンギア Zero Shin Gia): The shin armor. The internal energy condenser “Zero Annihilator” (ゼロアナイアレイター Zero Anaiareitā) has the role of temporarily storing the energy supplied from the Ark Driver-Zero when activating a special move, and discharging a large amount of energy at once.
- Zero Foot Gear (アークゼロヘッド Zero Futto Gia): The boots. When the Special Move is activated, the anti-annihilation field can be expanded to convert the substance that becomes a resistance or obstacle into energy. This invalidates the physical defenses and at the same time improves the destructive power of the kick.

Behind the scenes
Naki is portrayed by Satsuki Nakayama (中山咲月 Nakayama Satsuki). While possessing Isamu Fuwa, Naki was portrayed by Ryutaro Okada (岡田 龍太郎 Okada Ryutaro), while keeping Nakayama's voice. As Kamen Rider Naki, their suit actor is Yuichi Hachisuka (蜂須賀 祐一 Hachisuka Yūichi), who previously served as the suit actor for Kamen Rider Ixa (Yuri and Megumi Aso), and is best known as the suit actor for most female Sentai Rangers.
- Naki's name comes from the second kanji in the kanji for "MetsubouJinrai" (滅亡迅雷).
- Like Horobi, Naki's name is read in the Kun'yomi-style "Naki" (なき), rather than the more conventional On'yomi-style "Bou" (ぼう).
- Naki was name dropped in episode 18 by Horobi, where he said "One of our deceased comrades..." (今は亡き 我らの同志が... Ima wa naki warera no dōshi ga...), Which also translates to "Now it's Naki, one of our comrades...".
- Prior to episode 25, Naki was credited as the Mysterious hooded person (謎のフードの人物 Nazo no fūdo no jinbutsu).
- Similarly to both Ikazuchi and Horobi, Naki is also from the older generation of Humagears.
- Naki has similarities with Phillip from Kamen Rider W:
- Both of them are already dead before they meet the heroes and revived in some shape and form.
- Both Naki and Phillip were previously affiliated with their seasons' respective evil organizations (MetsubouJinrai.net and Sonozaki Family).
- Both of them decide to work together with their series' respective hero as Riders simultaneously (Isamu Fuwa and Shotaro Hidari).
- Naki is the second MetsubouJinrai.net member to cooperate with the heroes after Jin.
- According to a blog post by Satsuki Nakayama, the actor does not consider Naki to be any gender like themselves. Nakayama also stated that Naki’s gender can be open to viewer interpretation. Producer Takahito Omori would later confirm in an interview that it was decided not to give Naki a gender.
- Azu's result of Naki's singularity test is as follows:
- They stand at 164 cm, which is their actor's actual height.
- Their Humagear No. is 0188.
- When reversed, Naki's number could be read as 8 (は ha) 8 (や ya) 10 (て te) (gale), referencing to one of their Rider forms themes being wind.
- Their operating system is MBJR002, which makes them the second member of MetsubouJinrai.net.
- Naki is the first genderless Kamen Rider in the entire franchise, not counting Finis as Another 1.
- Before the official reveal of Kamen Rider Naki, the April 2020 issue of Televi-Kun foreshadowed Naki's suit will be silver with blue eyes. The MetsubouJinrai.net members are shown with their kanji-spelled names colored after their helmet eyes and their katakana-spelled names colored in their primary suit colors.
- Kamen Rider Naki reuses Kamen Rider ZeroZero-One's undersuit, as well as slightly repainted versions of its boots, armbands, gloves and knee pads.
- Naki is the second MetsubouJinrai.net member to use a Zetsumerisekey to transform. The first is Ikazuchi.
- Naki's transformation pose traces out the Death (亡) kanji.
