Parado (パラド) is a former antagonist turned hero in the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid series. He is a Bugsters executive alongside Graphite, whose main goal is to annihilate the human race. However, his true agenda is to enjoy fighting his Bugster host Emu Hojo due to the original purpose of his existence, all while hating humanity for being a prideful race.

He later utilizes the Gashat Gear Dual to transform into Kamen Rider Para-DX (仮面ライダーパラドクス Kamen Raidā Paradokusu, lit. Paradox).

As recorded by CR, Para-DX is part of the High Tier of Bugsters within Kamen Rider Chronicle alongside Graphite and Lovelica. The Forbidden Continue!?

Character History

Origin

Mighty Action C

Containing a Bugster virus sample left by Kuroto Dan, Mighty Action C led to Parado's birth within the young Emu Hojo.

The first individual Bugster to be born, Parado's genesis lay in Mighty Action C, a demo game created by the teenage Kuroto Dan, son of then Genm Corp. CEO Masamune Dan. The Bugster Virus, which had been discovered by Kuroto on his laptop shortly following the arrival of the New Year in 2000 having appeared as a result of the Y2K bug, was planted on the Mighty Action C disc by Kuroto in an act of spite against eight year old Emu Hojo, whose fan designs he had sent in impressed (yet angered) Kuroto, who recognized the boy's vision as rivaling his own. Receiving Mighty Action C as "thanks" from Kuroto, the young Emu was unknowingly infected with the Bugster Virus and (through his subconscious wish for a friend to play games with) the being known only as Parado manifested within him. Unknown to everyone but Kuroto, Parado's conception inside Emu influenced him into becoming the Genius Gamer, "M."

Genius Gamer M

Parado as M, during Emu's teenage years.

As M, Parado would use Emu's body to play and win various championships, defeating a new challenger who named herself "Genius Gamer N " as a homage to him. After this challenge, Emu was later abducted and operated on by Michihiko Zaizen, with Parado being separated from his host's body. However, the entirety of the Next Genome Institute disappeared as a consequence. This resulted in Emu believing that the operation was nothing more than a dream, and he returned back to his goal of becoming a doctor.We're Me!?

Despite being separated, Emu was still infected with Parado's Bugster Virus. This allowed Emu to transform into a Gamer Rider without a "compatibility surgery." The side effects of being able to transform without it was that it would stimulate Parado's Bugster Virus within Emu, causing Emu to evoke mannerisms similar to when he and Parado were one. An example of this was Emu's change of saying "I" in Japanese, mainly switching from (Boku) to (Ore). In return, some of Emu's personality traits would eventually be evoked within Parado as well, as would later be seen during the death of the Burgermon Bugster.

Starting the Plague

Parado is seen playing a portable version of Mighty Action X, and is informed by Graphite of a new Bugster infection by Graphite. With Graphite proclaiming that they would soon be joined by an influx of comrades, Parado voiced to him his excitement at the prospect of their "game field" expanding. I'm a Kamen Rider!

As Graphite spread the Bugster virus further, Parado talked to him about his opinion that fate was like a puzzle game. When questioned by Graphite if he was sure that they should not be acting directly, Parado decided that he might as well introduce himself as he set off. Another Prodigy with No Thank You?

Creating a Genm Lie

Parad Genm

Parado "reveals" himself to the Riders.

When Kuroto is defeated as Kamen Rider Genm by Kiriya Kujo, using his newly acquired Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3, in front of Emu Hojo and Hiiro Kagami to prove his traitorous identity, Parado manages to intervene. Obscured by the explosion, he puts on Kuroto's Gamer Driver to give the impression that he is Genm. Emu and Hiiro's trust of Kiriya is destroyed, and the latter pretends he had lied to get the Giri Giri Chambara Gashat, not finding it worth it to argue against what they saw. The Reason for Some Lies!

Parado warned Kuroto that while the Proto Gashats had near-limitless potential, using them would ultimately destroy his body. Later on, Parado discovered that Graphite had taken the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat from the CEO's office. Men, Fly High! Parado deduced that Kuroto had allowed Graphite to take the Proto Gashat so that he would give the Kamen Riders their most challenging fight yet as he went on a rampage. He enthusiastically confessed to Dan that he "scared" him, and the CEO then set out to deliver the refined Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat to CR. Beat Up the Dragon!

Watching from a distance as Emu initially failed to acquire the co-operation of his fellow Riders, Parado voiced his doubt that they would receive worthy data from this outcome. Kuroto, however, assured him that they would collect their data regardless and that they could eventually replace the troublesome doctors with new candidates. Nevertheless, Emu ultimately achieved the collaboration of the four Riders, resulting in them dividing and using the Hunter Gamer together to terminate Graphite. Complimenting Graphite on his performance in spirit, Parado salvaged the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat left behind from his destruction and, with the Hunter Gamer used to its true potential, Kuroto was able to complete tests and data recording, allowing him to proceed to the next stage. Uneven Doctors!

Following the defeat of Michihiko Zaizen, Parado would adopt the alias of "Dr. Pac-Man" himself. He arrived to save Emu from the copies of Kamen Riders Double, OOO and Fourze whom Kamen Rider Genm summoned with the Ganbarizing Gashat, bringing with him the Pac Adventure, Famista and Xevious Legend Game Gashats. Part. I: Legend Rider Stage

Distracting the Riders with his Gashacon Bugvisor, "Dr. Pac-Man" took Emu away before being confronted by Hiiro Kagami and Taiga Hanaya, both intent on defeating him again while Emu started to trust him. With Genm and his Riders catching up with them, "Dr. Pac-Man" handed a Gashat to each of the three doctor Riders, allowing them to face Genm's Legend Riders, before taking his leave with Genm in pursuit. Ultimately, "Dr. Pac-Man" was caught by Genm who took his helmet off, recognizing his true identity as he presented a fourth Gashat, Taiko no Tatsujin. Part. II: Legend Gamer Stage

Parado bears witness to Kuroto's completed Dangerous Zombie Gashat.

Waiting at Kuroto's lair after he revealed himself to the Riders, Parado was amused to discover that the CEO had used the data of his own death to complete his new Gashat, Dangerous Zombie, remarking that he was a "truly terrifying" man. Looking upon the completed Gashat, Parado voiced his enthusiasm at the start of a new game. Who's the Black Kamen Rider?

On Kuroto's behalf, Parado collected the data of the Level 3 Salty Bugster once it was destroyed by the Kamen Riders. Returning to the now-former CEO, Parado found him working on his ultimate project, Kamen Rider Chronicle. Christmas Special: Targeting the Silver X mas!

Parad Emu fate

Parado dares Emu to change his fate.

Parad reacts Level 10

Parado witnesses Emu's transformation into Level 10.

Kuroto is nearly finished with a new, larger Rider Gashat meant for Parado, but it requires more data. He gives it to the Bugster and sends him to collect data, but the latter brings up the possibility of one of the Kamen Riders stealing it. Kuroto explains that it would infect them with a lethal amount of the Bugster virus if anyone (but Parado) were to use it. Intrigued by this information, the Bugster gives Emu Hojo the Gashat, telling him to change his fate with it. While the Riders are fighting the stronger Genm, he is seen telling Emu to show him that he could change his fate again, all while being hidden in a tree. Though the Gashat injected a deadly amount of Bugster Virus into Emu like the CEO said it would, it mysteriously does not and instead converts it into the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat, granting Emu much greater power. While Parado is fascinated by this development, Kuroto is angered. Defined Destiny

While Kuroto was confounded at how Emu used the Gashat, Parado pointed out that unlike the other Riders, he was the anomaly among them and was therefore unique, which was what made him (according to Parado) so "exciting". The former CEO conceded that the transformation was at least useful, in that it would allow him to create a new Gashat for Parado, who noted that he was to thank along with M. Kuroto nevertheless vowed to assert his dominance as the "Game Master" by eliminating Ex-Aid's bootleg game. We're Kamen Riders!

Becoming Para-DX

"Kamen Rider Para-DX Level 50. Let me show you my game. Let's play!"
―Para-DX's proclamation before his first battle[src]

Kuroto once again creates a larger Rider Gashat for Parado, but this time fully finished. Parado decides to "play" with it by intruding on a battle between Hiiro, Taiga, and Emu, all while chaining Revol. Becoming Kamen Rider Para-DX for the first time, he proceeds to defeat all three of them using both of his forms. He initially knew that Ex-Aid wasn't fighting at all when Brave and Snipe attacked him one-sidedly, which "bores" him, telling the attacking Riders to "not be such a killjoy". After defeating Emu, he tells him that he'll "play" with him any time. A New Challenger Appears!

He later "plays" with Emu as Ex-Aid Level XX, assuming the form of Para-DX Puzzle Gamer Level 50, fighting alongside Kuroto as Genm Level X. Upon easily defeating Ex-Aid Level XX, he mocks and questions Emu if "that's all he's got", until Revol suddenly shoots him in the back, claiming that the Bugster will attain his true form by defending Emu. This severely angers Parado, to the point of claiming that "non-playable characters aren't that smart to begin with", forcing him to assume Fighter Gamer Level 50. Genm attempts to deter Para-DX by saying that Revol is "not his opponent", but the Bugster Rider refuses to listen and declares that he will crush anyone who "hinders his fun". He would later proceed to destroy Revol with a Jolt Haymaker version of his Knock Out Critical Smash, but not before the Bugster futilely attempts to retreat. The Paradox of Defeating M

A Line In The Sand

Parad talks burgers

Parado discusses Ju Ju Burger with Kuroto.

When he encounters Emu (and transforms into Para-DX Puzzle Gamer afterwards), he noticed Ex-Aid not using Mighty Brothers XX at all during their battle. When Ex-Aid revealed that he left it at home due to being on a day off work (along with his other Gashats, save for Mighty Action X), Para-DX complained that it was "lame as hell". However, he did express a small level of interest when he saw the new Ju Ju Burger Gashat, stating that he'd never thought he'd actually see a Level 4 Gashat. As Ex-Aid was helping Burgermon escape, he said to himself that things were getting interesting before making his leave too. Back at Kuroto's hideout, he expressed his surprise that someone other than Kuroto himself could make a real Gashat, with the CEO explaining that he initially didn't have enough workers to finish it in time, so he shelved it. But now that the Gashat was finalized and completed, Kuroto managed to fool Parado by claiming that he needed to reclaim it.

Later, he teamed up with Genm to take the new Gashat for Kamen Rider Chronicle, but was shocked to see Genm murdering Burgermon in cold blood. After returning to the hideout, he asked if killing the passive Bugster was necessary, stating that he thought Kuroto just wanted to reclaim the Gashat. The former CEO stated that he can't allow games without his permission to be made, citing his self-proclaimed title as the "Game Master". Parado then emotionlessly said to Kuroto that he should just delete the game's data, but the latter decided not to, since he was the one who proposed it in the first place, telling the Bugster to not lump the Gashats and his kind together. After this conversation, he revealed to Parado that he needed the Gashats to create the world of Kamen Rider Chronicle. A Nonstandard BURGSTER?

Parad and Dan reacts

Parado witnessing Emu being consumed by the Bugster Virus.

Eventually, he would have enough of Kuroto's god complex and keep his hope of defeating Emu. Just as Genm was about to threaten Emu by handing over all his Gashats, Para-DX, as Fighter Gamer Level 50, punched Genm in the back to save Emu. He then proclaimed about his reason of killing Revol: He was simply playing the game by the rules and the Bugster race (as a whole) lives to compete, but not to survive. Para-DX then proceeded to senselessly beat Genm before transforming into Puzzle Gamer Level 50 and using three Muscular Energy Items, before finishing off Genm with a destructive Perfect Critical Combo, knocking him out of his transformation. The former CEO would then punish him for his defiance by revealing to Emu that he is the first person to ever be infected with the Bugster Virus. Parado lifts him by his jacket, knowing that he was too late to stop this revelation. The Truth Exposed

"Welcome back, Emu."
―Parado's words to Emu, after the latter regains his original personality.[src]
Welcome back EMU

Parado welcomes back Emu.

Seeing the Game Disease overwhelm Emu, Parado promptly let go of Kuroto and vanished. Emu, however, survived the outburst; as Parado would later reveal, he had in fact stepped into Emu's body in that instance to manage his stress and save him, We're Me!? but the "M" persona would become dominant for an extended period of time. Parado would later witness Genm's defeat at the hands of Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50 from a distance, seeing that "M" had returned back to Emu. A Sudden Fantasy!?

Para-DX stops attack

As a test to see how Hiiro could handle the power of a Level 50 Gashat. Parado transforms into Para-DX Puzzle Gamer Level 50, while Hiiro transforms into Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50. The two appear to be evenly matched even after Para-DX assumes Fighter Gamer Level 50, but as Para-DX was about to finish Brave off, Brave holds his chest in pain. Para-DX then hesitates to deal the final blow and proceeds to forfeit the match, as there is no honor in finishing off an exhausted opponent. Parado cancels his transformation and tells an exhausted Hiiro that Level 50 is too much for his body to handle, before leaving in hopes of being able to "play" with him again sometime. He is then seen back at Kuroto's hideout, telling him to complete his project: Kamen Rider Chronicle. He calmly counters that Parado knows nothing about the power of Level X, to which Kuroto refers to as "the unknown". Take Off Against the Direction of the Wind!

Parado later challenges Taiga in their Level 50 forms, as Taiga is now even to pit himself against the Bugster, thanks to his experience with his Proto Gashat's side effects 5 years ago during the first Zero Day. After their battle ended in a tie, Parado warned Taiga to look out for Kuroto's other plans, which were related to his Level X upgrade and Kamen Rider Chronicle before departing. Chasing the Mystery!

Still looking for thrills, Parado would confront Snipe and Brave again, keeping the two from handling the latest Bugster outbreak. Parado left as soon as the victim was revealed to be Kuroto, but continued to observe the latter from a distance.Engineered History!

The Death of Genm

"He's under the delusion that he's God. He's just an irritating guy who created us Bugsters to use as his game pieces. So don't worry about him; his mind and body are already as good as dead. Just because you dealt a finishing blow to him doesn't mean you've taken his life. Can you really forgive the man who took Lazer's life? If you don't defeat the last boss...there will be no happy ending for this world. Use your power...and eliminate Genm."
―Parado points out to Emu that Kuroto is now a shell of who he once was, and requests him to eliminate the latter once and for all.[src]

"Don't be such a killjoy...M. The game isn't going to end like this. Losers deserve an ending befitting a loser."
―Parado prepares to kill Kuroto in front of the CR doctors.[src]

"Thanks for all the hard work..."Game Master". I'll be taking Kamen Rider Chronicle now."
―Parado betrays Kuroto and leaves the latter to die.[src]

Kuroto infected DZ Virus

Parado re-infecting Kuroto with Dangerous Zombie's Bugster Virus as his form of betrayal.

Much to his joy, CR was able to create a new Gashat to counter Genm, but was disappointed to see Emu spare Kuroto's life in favor of the former CEO getting punished for his crimes. Parado found Emu soon after and attempted to convince him to kill Kuroto, reasoning that it wouldn't count as killing to finish off the twisted husk that Genm had become. When Emu spared Genm's life again (albeit removing his Rider compatibility), Parado was forced to take matters into his own hands. Pretending to help Kuroto up, he quickly punched him to the ground before giving him the "ending" he deserved: a lethal dose of the Bugster Virus from his own Bugvisor. Parado taunted and thanking the "Game Master" that he would take Kamen Rider Chronicle for himself before leaving the doomed Kuroto to die. Later, Parado looks at the still incomplete Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat and exclaimed that he'll complete the game.To The Max, Dead or Alive!

Kamen Rider Chronicle

Parado was later seen in the basement of Genm Corp, where he use the Bugster data inside of the Gashacon Bugvisor to revive all of them, including Graphite. Parado explained to a confused Graphite that he can be revived anytime, since Graphite is a perfected Bugster which even Kuroto didn't know. Graphite smirks bitterly, while muttering that his death was one of his puzzles. Parado then said that the final component of Kamen Rider Chronicle is already on their way, and it turned out to be none other than Poppy, whom recently got brainwashed by the new CEO of Genm Corp, Ren Amagasaki. Parado greeted her warmly, which Poppy kindly responded back.

After all the Bugsters had assembled, Parado took the incomplete Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat and activated it. The Bugsters except Parado and Ren were absorbed into the title screen, with Poppy and Graphite filling up the remaining two blank spaces. The Gashat is then finally completed with its official logo. Parado happily exclaimed that the game of Kamen Rider Chronicle had started.Go Together, Embracing Your Ambitions!

Parado appeared before Emu again after the latter had been robbed of his Gashats by some of the Ride-Players. Welcoming Emu to the ultimate game, Parado transformed into Para-DX. Killing all the players with ease, Parado revealed to Emu his hatred of humanity, and Kamen Rider Chronicle was simply a means to wipe out humanity. Start the New Game!

Achieving Level Max

"I'll change the Bugsters' fate!"
―Para-DX emulates Ex-Aid during their face-off.[src]
After Poppy was restored to her original self by Ex-Aid's reprogramming ability, she began to regain memories belonging to the host she had taken over. Still asserting that Poppy is an ally of the Bugsters, Parado takes her back to Genm Corp. As she questions why the Bugsters and humans should be fighting each other, Parado threatens her, saying that she should be enjoying the game more.

The next day, as Brave, Snipe, and Ride-Player Nico attack Poppy, Parado demands Emu to have a proper duel with him, but Emu was more focused on saving Poppy, much to Parado's disappointment. As Emu manages to save Poppy and clear her game without needing to destroy her, a disappointed Parado later appears, stating that Emu is him before possessing the latter. Beyond Your Identity

Using Emu's body to transform into Para-DX, Parado overpowers Brave and Snipe before heading back to Genm Corp, still in Emu's body. Parado then leaves Emu, taking out a Gamer Driver (presumably Kuroto's) and attempts to transform with it, but fails since the Gamer Driver can only be used by humans. Parado then drags Emu outside, revealing that he was born from Emu's desires and loneliness, and that they have been connected all this time. Emu then realizes that Parado was actually his own Bugster, as the latter possesses Emu yet again, transforming in Ex-Aid Level XX. Parado, now as Ex-Aid Level XX R, challenges Emu as Level XX L to a duel. Emu was not willing to fight, even after Parado gave him the Gashacon Key Slasher and the Maximum Mighty X Gashat as a "handicap".

Parado later has Emu remember the moment when he first learnt he had game illness. Though Emu was supposed to have died back then, it was Parado who gave his life another chance by taking over Emu and managing his stress, thus hitting Emu with the hard truth that his fate was ultimately in Parado's hands in the end. Parado challenges Emu to show that he can change his own fate, finally spurring Emu to fight and unleashing a Maximum Mighty Critical Finish onto Parado. At first, it seems that Parado had lost, but Parado still has one trick up his sleeve: thanks to Ex-Aid's reprogramming ability, Parado now has Emu's human DNA imprinted on him, technically making him now part-human. This finally enabled him to use a Gamer Driver and transform into Para-DX Level 99. After managing to overpower Brave and Snipe, and even Ex-Aid Level 99, Parado takes over Emu's body once again, leaving the scene. We're Me!?

With Snipe taken out by Graphite, he and Parado were expecting to be faced by Brave, but Cronus instead faced them himself, and intended to terminate them personally. Though Graphite successfully neutralized Cronus' ability to Pause through usage of the Gamedeus virus, this was rendered moot as Cronus retained the advantage by seizing control of all Energy Items, allowing him to easily defeat both Para-DX and Graphite. The two Bugsters were only saved by the arrival of Genm and Lazer Turbo, who fought to preserve Parado as his existence was what enabled Emu, the only one who could defeat Cronus, to transform.

As Parado tries to find and take his revenge on Cronus alone, he meets Emu, who decided to eradicate Parado to obtain the Perfect Puzzle and Knock Out Fighter Gashatrophies, in order to summon Gamedeus to cure Nico. The two then engage in what seemed to be their final fight, as a way for Emu to fulfill his earlier promises with Parado. Parado and Emu reminisce about their own near-death experiences, before Emu mercilessly ends the Bugster with a Hyper Critical Sparking, after the latter unsuccessfully attempted to escape. Goodbye Me!

Redemption

"Let's clear it together with super co-op play!"
―Para-DX's proclamation before battle, along with Ex-Aid[src]

Parado's death was revealed to be a part of Emu's plan to make Parado learn about the emotions of fear and acceptance, as he actually absorbed his core before disappearing. Though Parado didn't want to admit all of his misdeeds, he became confused, lost, and depressed at the same time, not knowing what to do. After Poppy and Graphite argued about what was best for Parado, he stopped the two of them, somberly declaring that he wasn't excited at all before teleporting. At CR's roof, Parado returned to Emu and attempted to maintain his composure around him, but he suddenly had a breakdown and cried in sadness and repentance, begging for forgiveness out of what he had done. After staring at his Bugster with nothing but pity, Emu decided to forgive Parado, and took him as a new ally and a true friend to defeat Cronus. Parado, now with a newfound resolve to fight for humanity, took Emu's hand and finally chose to co-operate with him to defeat Masamune.

Emu and Parado immediately met up with Masamune, having decided to destroy the Master Gashat to cure Nico and save humanity. Though the CEO accepted their challenge, he was easily defeated thanks to the ultimate combination of Hyper Muteki Ex-Aid and Para-DX Level 99. Due to the Master Gashat's destruction, an angered Masamune screamed that had Hyper Muteki never existed, his plans would've been flawless. He suddenly raised his Bugvisor II to reset time thanks to his Bugster Virus evolving, much to the surprise of everyone and even Masamune, as he didn't expect any of it to actually happen. This action reset time to the point where Hyper Muteki was not created yet.

Sacrifice and Revival

"We're both Bugsters, so let's end this together..."
―Parado to Gamedeus while dying together[src]
"I hope this makes up for my deeds, somewhat...it may have been a short time, but playing games with you... It was the last fun I've ever had, Emu."
―Parado's second last words to Emu[src]

Watching the Doctor Riders desperately try to oppose the rampaging plague of Super Gamedeus, Parado, along with Poppy, decided to take matters into their own hands. Taking Doctor Mighty XX, Poppy made the first move as she used herself as a conduit to cure all the infected, sacrificing her own existence to neutralize Super Gamedeus' virus. Recovering Doctor Mighty XX, Para-DX used it in his own Gamer Driver as he intercepted Gamedeus, now separated from Masamune Dan, just in time to stop the behemoth from finishing off his fellow Riders. Parado told Gamedeus that they would die together as the Bugster god began to disintegrate; Parado hoped that this act would make up for even a little of what he had done in the past, thanking Emu for the brief (but fun) ride. Emu ran over to him too late as his Bugster faded away, the last speck of him disappearing in Emu's hand. Masamune, still holding the power of Cronus declared that, with the access to Emu's Muteki Gamer now gone, the doctor Riders would face a "Bad End." The Last Smile

Though Cronus initially overwhelmed all five Riders, Parado's sacrifice proved to have weakened him sufficiently, which was enough for Emu to break through Pause and ultimately defeat him with his fellow Riders. They were, however, unable to stop Masamune from destroying the Rider Chronicle Master Gashat with himself in a final act of spite, robbing them of their chance to retrieve the Game Disease victims from the Proto Gashats. Later, back at CR, Kuroto Dan, having managed to restore Poppy from a fragment she had left in his hand, revealed to Emu that his being able to transform after Parado disappeared meant that he had reinfected Emu, who rejoiced from the realization. Sure enough, Parado materialized from within Emu immediately after, surprised and happy to be alive. An emergency call comes in, and Emu answers it. Soon after, Parado and Poppy bore witness to the reveal of Dan's new game, Kamen Rider Build, the Gashat of which was tested by Emu. Endless Game

Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders

Kamenrider009161

After Takumi Katsuragi/Kamen Rider Build steals Emu's ability to transform into Ex-Aid, Parado, follows him to the portal to the World of Build to get Emu's powers back, however while trying to confront Build, both fell into the portal, after arriving, Katsuragi and Parado landed in different places leaving Parado stuck in the World of Build for two years (on the A.R. World's timeline) as well. Unaware of the original Build's identity, Parado found (and mistakenly confronted) Sento Kiryu, the current Build (who is actually an amnesic Katsuragi bearing a new face) who claimed to have no recollection of the event, thinking of it as a dream. After Sento realizes that Parado comes from another world, Parado surprises as Sento should already know that but Sento tells him that only remembers the last year of his life and suffers amnesia which makes Parado mad and ordering Sento to give back the Doctor and Game Fullbottles, however they were interrupted by Soichi Isurugi who takes the bottles and explains the situation to both. Soichi gives Parado the Game Fullbottle and tells him to shake it closer to his ear so he can contact Emu, by doing it Parado finds out that in the main world only passed a week as the fluct of time is different in the two worlds but thanks to Enigma the fluct of time of the two worlds synchronized. After ending the call, Parado fell unconcious due to a side effect caused by the Game Fullbottle as his status as a Bugster Virus. After recovering consciouness, Parado once more confronted Sento who was fighting the Nebula Bugster. Sento told him that it was not the time for it and ordered him to help the civilians which made Parado notice that Sento was like Emu, in that moment Kaisei Mogami/L Kaiser appeared and Build fought him but he escaped, however Sento somehow managed to track him to his base and told Parado that he would sent him home. During the road, Sento asked Parado what was the Muteki thing that was in Katsuragi's data which Parado responds that as it's name says, He and Emu combine so they gain invincibility which leads Sento to believe that Katsuragi stole the Ex-Aid powers in order to protect them from Enigma's effect. Sento ask Parado to tell Emu Mogami's plan so he can be aware of what's going on. After arriving to Mogami's base, Parado starts to feel weak so Sento continues alone inside, he later joins him after recovering. When Mogami runs away and is about to activate Enigma, the two run to stop it but it is nowhere to find until a man wearing an orange jacket appears and kicks it revealing it's location. The man reveals himself as Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim who tells Sento and Parado to go inside Enigma while he fights the Guardians that are dropped from it. Once inside Enigma, Parado tells Emu via Game Fullbottle what to do while Sento is about to activate Enigma earlier which causses Parado to have doubts on him but Emu tells him to trust Sento. Once activated, Sento and Parado arrive in the World of Ex-Aid. When the final battle is about to start, Sento gives Emu the Doctor and Game Fullbottles and tells him to open them and shake them in order to regain his powers which works. Parado merges with Emu once again in order to transform into Ex-Aid. After the final battle as well Build and Cross-Z's departure to their homeworld, Emu and Parado are joined by their friends of the C.R.

The dark Bugster explained to his counterpart that he killed Emu and would become the ultimate being; a being that has both human and Bugster traits. Their first fight ended up with Parado losing, because he was weakened by Level 0 ropes from his imprisonment.

Later, Parado learned that Poppy was kidnapped and rescued her. Right when he rescued Poppy, he learned that the new doctor who helped with the new medical treatment was the culprit and her goal was to revive her father (Dr. Pac-Man) who was one of Parado's accidental victims during his birth. Parado and Poppy teamed up to beat the Black Parado and the mindless revived Dr. Pac-Man. But after winning, both of them got thrown out.

Kamen Rider Genm vs. Lazer

Personality

"Fate is like a puzzle game."
―Parado's belief of what fate is[src]
Parad's smile

Parado's enjoyment stems from his obsession with playing games.

No one can read his mind from his innocent smile. He has a great obsession with games and is often seen playing on handheld consoles. And true to his obsession, Parado treats all matters like one and operates in a more relaxed and playful manner, unlike the more brash Graphite. As such, he take joy in observing events unfolding before him, and acts more of a general oversight role, while Graphite tends to take care of the fieldwork. However, despite his usual cheerful attitude, Parado can be serious enough, to the point that Graphite himself can't help but obey him. However, unlike Graphite, who is loyal to the Bugster race, Parado didn't hesitate to trick and use his comrade to collect more data from the fights with the Kamen Riders, but as a part of his former collusion with Kuroto Dan. He didn't even seem to be sad or remorseful when Graphite is killed just because of his plan. Since the latter had already reach his perfected form, Parado can just simply revive him again, which he eventually does.

Despite his fun-loving, playful behavior, Parado can be provoked if anyone interrupts him while he is having fun fighting, as shown when the Revol Bugster shoots him from behind; he responds to this by quickly destroying Revol, much to Kuroto's dismay.The Paradox of Defeating M However, he won't kill any Bugsters that don't attack him at all, nor provoke him, such as Graphite and Burgermon. After seeing Kuroto destroying both Burgermon and Motors (when the latter is used as a tool), this would eventually drive a wedge between their partnership. He is revealed to have a code of honor among the rules of gaming and his own species, such as his dislike of unfairness. Examples of this are like how Kuroto treated the Parado and the Bugster species as nothing more than expendable tools just for his own ambition, and was also deeply shocked when Lovelica is killed permanently by Cronus. Eventually, having lost his patience with Kuroto and his hubris, Parado murders him with no shred of mercy, all while promising to finish Kamen Rider Chronicle in his own way.

After completing Kamen Rider Chronicle, Parado reveals his contempt towards humanity for their arrogance, which stems from Kuroto's treatment towards using his kind as pawns. His plan for Kamen Rider Chronicle was a large contradiction from Kuroto; while the former CEO wants to use the game as a means of resurrecting others (specifically his mother), Parado uses the game as a means to wipe out humanity. Parado also shows his more violent side to "play" with Emu, and even attempted to kill Poppy since she allied herself on the side of humanity.

Parad shows scared

The emergence of Cronus would soon spark a fear of death within Parado.

However, upon Masamune's reveal as Cronus and killing Lovelica permanently, Parado started to show a sign of fear against him. This fear was amplified after the deranged CEO killed Salty permanently by using Kamen Rider Chronicle's Master Gashat. The trauma and fear was so great that Parado was even cowering in a fetal position after Masamune reminded the Bugsters that he could kill them at any time for their disobedience, showing an immense fear of truly dying. However, after a pep talk from Graphite about his initial objective (to "play" against Emu) and witnessing Emu's near-successful plan in dealing with Cronus, Parado regained his confidence once more, stating that his heart is burning once again, but only because he knew his weakness.

It is later revealed that Parado is blinded of the fear of dying and knows no other emotion rather than having fun. When Cronus' power showed how strong he is (even without Pause), Parado finally broke down. His breakdown was also shown when Emu found and seemingly killed him. After he realized all of his sins, he decided to seek redemption.

While a redeemed individual, Parado still does not discard his friendship to his kind. Since he is now on the side of humanity, he attempted reasoning with Graphite to stop eradicating humanity. As humanity's newest savior, he also showed his newfound combat affinity with Emu which was able to pressure even Cronus.

Possessions

Powers and Abilities

  • Teleportation: Just like any Bugsters, Parado has shown the ability to teleport himself, but with a coloring glitch-like effect.
Parado single hand blocking

Parado saving Kuroto from Lazer's Critical Finish.

  • Forcefield Generation: Even in his civilian form, Parado was able to protect Kuroto from Lazer Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3's Giri Giri Critical Finish, without any ill effect. It is a possible foreshadowing of one of his abilities in Puzzle Gamer or Perfect Knock Out Gamer.
Parad possessonhg

Parado possessing Emu.

  • Host Possession: Like other high level imperfect Bugsters, he can take control of the body of his host, Emu Hojo.
    • Possession Recovery: Parado can fully restore himself by possessing Emu, and even the smallest fragments can merge with the latter.
  • Acquired Human DNA: After tricking Emu (XX L) into using Maximum Mighty X's reprogramming ability, Parado obtained Emu's human DNA, which allowed him to use Kuroto's first Gamer Driver.
  • Emu Hojo's Bugster Antibody: As a Bugster created from Emu Hojo, Parado can protect and maintain Emu's existence from any Bugster hazards, preventing the latter from succumbing to game disease.

Weakness

  • Level 0 Gashats: Bugsters in the Game Areas created from Level 0 Gashats will have their certain abilities restricted; in Parado's case, he can't possess any humans including Emu. Also, any attacks with the usage of Level 0 Gashats can effectively damage Bugsters, regardless of their level gap. Gashats like this can also "Level Down" any enemy rider, as shown in episode 31; Parado's Level dropped down to 75 as he fought Kuroto, and later dropped ever further to his original level (50) as Emu and Kuroto joined forces. This effect however, is temporary as after he canceled his transformation, his level seems to return back to normal.
  • Death Anxiety: Ever since Emu was injured in an accident in his childhood, Parado developed the fear of death through Emu's heart, though this was initially disregarded due to the immortal-like nature of Bugsters. However, ever since Parado witnessed the "death" of Bugsters (as well as experiencing it), he has succumbed to this fear again and can lose the will to fight.
  • Game Fullbottle: As the Game Fullbottle contains half of Ex-Aid's powers, it allows Parado to contact Emu from the World of Build by shaking it. However, Parado's matured Bugster virus physiology reacts poorly to the Fullbottle's purified Nebula Gas content, causing him to fall weak (or even unconscious) when he does this.

  • Weight: 102.1 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 90 t.
  • Kicking power: 94.4 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 92.6 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 1.2 sec.

Perfect Knock Out Gamer Level 99 (パーフェクトノックアウトゲーマーレベル99 Pāfekuto Nokkuauto Gēmā Reberu Nainti Nain) is Para-DX's final form, achieved by utilizing the Gashat Gear Dual in the Gamer Driver. This form combines aspects of Puzzle Gamer and Fighter Gamer.

In this form, despite Para-DX's stats being slightly lower than Ex-Aid's Level 99, his amazing combat skills fill the gap, putting him on par with Ex-Aid and easily towering all the other Riders in every stat, including some Riders that have the stats of Level X.

As the form's name suggests, this form combines the physical strength of Knock Out Fighter and the defensive abilities of Perfect Puzzle, along with the abilty to combine Energy Items as well.

This form does seem to have the ability to manipulate the Energy Items like Puzzle Gamer, as shown when he first fought Snipe using this form.

The main weapon of Para-DX in this form is the Gashacon Parabragun (ガシャコンパラブレイガン Gashakon Parabureigan), which can switch between a gun and a hand axe.

Before its debut, Para-DX Level 99 was briefly seen in the new opening sequence.

At first, this form could not be accessed as Bugsters are unable to use a Gamer Driver that were specifically made for humans to use. However, by tricking Emu to use Maximum Mighty X's reprogramming ability on him, fusing their genes together while the two's genetic makeup were one through Mighty Brothers XX, Parado can now use the Driver and transform into this form at will.

By inserting the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat into the Gashacon Parabragun, Para-DX can split into both of his Level 50 forms. The Puzzle Gamer gains mannerisms similar to Emu's soft-spoken nature, while the Fighter Gamer retains Parado's regular fun-loving demeanor.

    • Muzzle Ride Hair (マザライドヘアー Maza Raido Heā) - Kamen Rider Para-DX Perfect Knockout Gamer's "hair". It is modelled after a mix of the player characters from Perfect Puzzle and Knockout Fighter and is coated with a blast-resistant coating.

  • PD Growth Arm (PDグロウスアーム PD Gurousu Āmu) - Kamen Rider Para-DX's arms. It has a function called Gain Riser (ゲインライザー Gein Raizā) that increases combat capabilities based on the rider's level and combat experience. The arms specialize in high-speed, precise motions to target enemies's weak points.
  • Smash Combo Glove (ダイレクトヒットグローブ Dairekuto Hitto Gurōbu) - Kamen Rider Para-DX's gloves. It coordinates with the Gashacon weapons to optimize attacks. It can also bypass the enemies's armor using a device called a Damage Impulser (ダメージインパルサー Damēji Inparusā).
  • PD Growth Leg (PDグロウスレッグ PD Gurousu Reggu) - Kamen Rider Para-DX's legs. It has a function called Gain Riser (ゲインライザー Gein Raizā) that increases combat capabilities based on the rider's level and combat experience.

Relationships

  • CR:
    • Emu Hojo: Parado is very interested in Emu for unknown reasons. He shows up to 'help' Emu in many ways, including giving him the blank version of of Mighty Brothers XX Gashat. He also showing joy upon seeing his recovery from fully being M. The sole reason of him helping Emu is that he wants to be the one who defeats him. There are subtle implications that he sees Emu as a friend (or at least a special exception of some sort) due to their competitive natures. The feeling is not reciprocated by Emu. Beyond Your Identity But after revealing himself to Emu as 'his' Bugster, he wants to fight against him to the existing point. It wasn't until Emu defeated and revived Parado that the Bugster finally realized his wrongdoings. Destiny Reboot!Working alongside Emu to defeat Cronus & later Gamedeus, he sacrificed himself using the vaccine to save him and the others. Cultivating with Emu again, he was revived and fought once more alongside him.
    • Hiiro Kagami: Parado's opinion on Hiiro is mostly unknown, but he was willing to back off from battling him when it was clear to him Hiiro was too exhausted from the strain of Level 50.
    • Taiga Hanaya: Parado was truly impressed by Taiga's combat skills when both of them had a tie while fighting each other and finishing the fight with their Kimewaza Finishers. He also gave a helpful warning to Taiga about Genm trying to break the Level concept with the true power of Level X before he left the scene.
    • Kiriya Kujo: Parado was aware of his death by Genm's hands and reminds Emu of what he did to him.
    • Kuroto Dan: Parado was once allied with Kuroto for unknown reasons and given numerous Gashats for his use. After Kuroto killed the Burgermon Bugster in cold blood, Parado left him. Though he still stayed close to him in hopes of looking into the completion of Kamen Rider Chronicle, Kuroto tells him that he "understands nothing" about the data of death that is the Dangerous Zombie Gashat, which, despite being Level 10, is also Level X, also called "The Unknown". Now realizing that Kuroto's recent plan relating to Kamen Rider Chronicle project is a far much more potential threat to humans and Bugsters alike, Parado wanted him dead for good. Eventually, Parado had a change in his mind. He does kill Kuroto for good, but promised that he will finish Kamen Rider Chronicle his way. However, following his revival, Kuroto vowed his revenge against him, much to his dismay.
    • Masamune Dan: Parado was initially either unaware of Masamune or unconcerned about him until he reveals himself as Kamen Rider Cronus, and considers both Bugsters and Kamen Riders alike as mere products of Genm corp. Upon killing Lovelica and explaining that he is permanently dead due to Cronus' time-stopping abilities, Parado becomes horrified upon the revelation that even a Perfect Bugster can be killed. To date, Masamune is the only person to instill fear into Parado, though Parado eventually resolves to defeat him when Graphite helps him remember why he's "playing" Kamen Rider Chronicle in the first place.
    • Sento Kiryu: In Heisei Generations FINAL, Parado encounters Sento Kiryu and begins to fight him, mistaking him for the Build that appeared in True Ending. He seems a bit annoyed when Sento realizes (and the way he said) that Katsuragi Takumi didn't want Parado's power, but Ex-Aid Hyper Muteki instead.
    • Kouta Kazuraba: Kouta later helps Parado and Sento during the events of Heisei Generations FINAL.

Ridewatch

"(Digital beeping) Para-DX!"
―Activation announcement[src]

"Puzzles and fighting, the Rider who fights with two games is... Para-DX! (パズルと格闘、2つのゲームで戦うライダーは…パラドクスだ! Pazuru to kakutō, futatsu no gēmu de tatakau Raidā wa... Paradokusu da!)"
―Secondary activation announcement[src]

"(Right-hand Ridewatch's announcement)! Armor Time! (Indian sitar music) Mazaru Up! Para-DX!"
―Transformation announcement in the Ziku-Driver's left-hand slot[src]

"Finish Time! Critical Time (Break/Burst/Jack)!"
―Finisher announcement in left-hand slot[src]

Para-DX Ridewatch (パラドクスライドウォッチ Paradokusu Raidowotchi): Based on Kamen Rider Para-DX Perfect Knock Out Gamer Level 99, this Ridewatch would provide access to the Para-DXArmor. It is dated 2016.


Behind the scenes

Portrayal

  • Parado is portrayed by Shouma Kai (甲斐 翔真 Kai Shōma). His suit actor as Kamen Rider Para-DX is Kazuya Okada (岡田 和也 Okada Kazuya). While possessing Emu Hojo, he is portrayed by Hiroki Iijima (飯島 寛騎 Ījima Hiroki) while his suit actor as Ex-Aid Level XX R is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji).

Etymology

  • Both his name and Rider designation are derived from the word "Paradox" (パラドックス Paradokkusu). His Rider name is even pronounced similarly to said word, though without the sokuon () katakana.

Notes

  • The design of his pants are reminiscent of pixels from retro video games.
  • Parado's clothing and enigmatic personality is similar to Kai from Kamen Rider Den-O and EnterIcon-crosswiki from Tokumei Sentai Go-BustersIcon-crosswiki.
    • His clothing's coloration is also similar to that of Genm's color scheme, even though he only posed as him instead of actually transforming into Genm.
    • Coincidentally, Parado's actor, Shouma Kai, shares his name with the character Kai as well.
  • Kamen Rider Para-DX is the first Ex-Aid Rider to not have a gamepad like Rider Gauge in any of his default forms, instead only having one in his upgraded Level 99 form.
    • Kamen Rider Para-DX is also the first Ex-Aid Rider to not have any of the basic Level 1 to Level 3 forms, instead skipping straight to Level 50 instead.
  • Parado as Para-DX Fighter Gamer bears some resemblance to Ex-Aid and Genm, though his "hair" has more spikes compared to them. The resemblance is played even further with the appearance of Para-DX's Level 99 form, with the visor and "hair-spike" design" being very similar to Ex-Aid's, only that Para-DX has double the number of hair-spikes. This is likely to further the point of Parado being the Bugster born from Emu.
    • His Puzzle Gamer form's helmet also has a slight, but vague, resemblance to Brave's helmet. Along with a more clear resemblance to one of Gentaro Kisaragi's hairstyles, if exaggerated with it's length.
    • Incidentally, the color scheme of Para-DX's Level 99 form is the negative of the color scheme of Ex-Aid's Level XX forms.
  • The change of helmet while switching forms is similar to the "Face Change" of ShurikengerIcon-crosswiki from Ninpu Sentai HurricanegerIcon-crosswiki.
    • Incidentally, to an extent, Para-DX's Fighter Gamer form and Shurikenger Fire Mode both share elements related to fire.
  • Parado is also similar to Alain as they were first introduced as generals to their respective factions and get to become Kamen Riders themselves.
    • Also like Alain, rather than using a transformation belt like the other riders, he uses a transformation device much like Alain's Mega Ulorder, though Parado would go on to use a Gamer Driver much later.
    • Both are also redeemed by the primary rider though Parado takes a very late turn instead. And as redeemed, they also tried to reason with their own former ally before it turns into fight (Alain with his brother Adel and Parado with Graphite)
  • Kamen Rider Para-DX Fighter Gamer's hands are covered by punching gauntlets much like Kamen Rider Knuckle Kurumi Arms and Kamen Rider Ghost Newton Damashii.
  • His Rider designation, Para-DX, can be a wordplay for both "paramedic" and "diagnosis" (often abbreviated as "DX").
    • It is also an abbreviation for "Deluxe", referring to certain first-class toys.
    • Parado's Rider title being Para-DX could also be a reference to his nature as an unusual Bugster: Beyond (Para-) Diagnosis (DX).
    • The first name basis for Para-DX's main forms are terminologies in fighting game:
      • Perfect Puzzle: Indicated the player's victory without having their health gauge drained.
      • Knock Out Fighter: Indicated the opponent or a player's defeat.
  • Currently, Parado is the only rider to have two base starting forms, though Puzzle Gamer Level 50 is commonly shown first in some media.
    • It is also shown when the Gashat Gear Dual is put into the Gamer Driver.
  • Like Ex-Aid when he changes to Level 2, Para-DX says "Dai Henshin" when changing forms.
    • This carries over to Level 99 as well, when Parado says "Max Dai Henshin" before the transformation.
  • Parado's interest towards Emu as well his enjoyment of fighting the latter is similar to N-Daguva-Zeba of Kamen Rider Kuuga.
    • Unlike Daguva though, Parado doesn't like unnecessary bloodshed to a certain extent, preferring to keep his opponents alive, and isn't completely heartless to even his own kind.
    • He also has a code of honor amongst his own kind, making him similar to Heart.
    • Despite his preference of keeping his foes alive, Parado enjoyed massacring the Ride-Players playing Kamen Rider Chronicle. Not unlike Daguva enjoying the countless slaughter of humans in the infamous Gurongi game, the Gegeru.
    • Para-DX and Ex-Aid having somewhat similar faces in their final forms could be another possible parallel to Daguva and Kuuga.
    • Also, he holds some similarities with Masato Kusaka in terms of driving a wedge between the main protagonists and their comrades to further their goals - Kusaka tricked Kiba and Takumi into making them fight each other, Parado is more willing to form a truce with Emu as a means to defeat Cronus after witnessing Hiiro's betrayal, while he is not above asking Emu to eliminate Brave.
  • Parado is the only Rider to have two level designations depending on how he uses his Gashat.
    • Emu is almost the same as he can access a stronger form by connecting the Hyper Muteki Gashat to the Maximum Mighty X Gashat.
    • The Taddle Legacy Gashat seems to be the opposite, as it has different Levels depending on which Rider uses it, despite both using the Gashat in the Gamer Driver's first slot.
  • Para-DX's Perfect Knock Out Gamer Level 99 is similar to Paradox Roidmude's Supreme Evolved State as he awakens and combines the past Roidmude 108. Likewise, the fusion of Perfect Puzzle and Knock Out Fighter and his name are shared with Paradox Roidmude as well.
  • Parado's transformation to Para-DX in Perfect Puzzle is also similar to the Riders from the Kamen Rider Blade series.
    • Para-DX's primary weapon in Level 99, the Gashacon Parabragun, also shares a similar name to Blade's main weapon, the Blay Rouzer.
      • However, the modes are akin to Kunai Gun (sans Kunai Mode)
  • When using the Gamer Driver to transform, Parado makes a pose similar to Emu, but inverted. Which could be a reference to his relationship with Emu.
    • This same pose is also similar to the pose Kamen Rider Ryuki makes during his Final Vent.
  • Parado is one of the few Non-Human Riders who are the members of their respective antagonists that has never revealed their monster form,the others will be Taiga Nobori (Kamen Rider Saga,Dark Kiva II) and Lapis (Kamen Rider Kamuro).
  • Parado being the source of Emu's ability to transform into Ex-Aid brings to mind WizarDragon from Kamen Rider Wizard. Unlike WizarDragon however, Parado started out as a villain until revealing himself to Emu about his origin, while Haruto managed to contain the Phantom inside him and became Wizard. The episodes that featured their respective destruction resulted the said Riders to lose their ability to transform, only to be resurrected in one episode later. It was also after their revival that they managed to peacefully coexist with their hosts on good terms.
  • Para-DX's appearance when in Perfect Knock Out Gamer is rather fitting as it represents a unity of combat might (Knock Out Fighter) and military strategy (Perfect Puzzle) to produce a more powerful force than when separate.
  • As Perfect Knock Out Gamer Level 99, Para-DX is the first Rider of the season to:
    • insert their Gashat into a Driver before it plays any announcement (barring errors where announcements simply weren't played).
    • transform with a Gamer Driver but not use a selection screen to choose their Rider form from.
  • Due to chasing Takumi Katsuragi before his fake murder to the World of Build, Parado has living off-screen in this A.R. World from the beginning of the Kamen Rider Build series to the episode 14 (which takes place before the events of Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders) of this one.
  • Due to the events of Heisei Generations FINAL, Parado is two years older in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid "Tricks": Kamen Rider Para-DX and Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Trilogy: Another Ending.
