Past

Roidmude 108 (Main)

Roidmude 108 imprisoned in the wall

Future

108 defeats Eiji

108 after murdering Eiji Tomari.

In 2035, 108, now Paradox, defeated and murdered the future Kamen Rider Drive, then stole his Drive Driver to become Kamen Rider Dark Drive. His true goal was later revealed - he wanted to go back in time to revive and fuse with his past self in order to evolve and create an eternal Global Freeze. To do that he assumed Eiji Tomari's form and traveled to 2015, where his goal was achieved and his fusion with his past self created the Paradox Roidmude. His plans however were foiled when Shinnosuke Tomari restarted his Drive Driver with the Tridoron Key and used his son's Shift Car to assume a heroic version of Type Next, using the form's Rider Kick after pulverizing Paradox in a fit of rage to destroy him for good.

Separate iterations of both the Paradox Roidmude and Kamen Rider Dark Drive existed in the Game World. Kamen Rider Dark Drive was one of a trio of "Dark Riders" from the Game World whom attacked Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level X. However, Ex-Aid ultimately overcame the three Dark Riders. The Paradox Roidmude was among the Shocker army of the Game World led by Shocker Leader III, the boss of the Chou Shocker Taisen bonus stage. This army was ultimately wiped out by a combined force of Kamen Riders and Sentai RangersIcon-crosswiki. Among those pitted against the ZyuohgersIcon-crosswiki, Paradox was beaten by Zyuoh ElephantIcon-crosswiki before being reeled in with the others by the Zyuoh The GunRodIcon-crosswiki of Zyuoh TheWorldIcon-crosswiki to be destroyed by the combined Zyuoh SlashIcon-crosswiki.

Roidmude 108

  • Height: 200 cm
  • Weight: 97 kg

Powers and Abilities

  • Heavy Acceleration: The signature ability of the Roidmude is to somehow slow down the movement of surrounding objects', including that of humans, with their unaffected consciousness aware of their impass during this time. One can be protected by the Heavy Acceleration effect by carrying Shift Cars or Signal Bikes on their person.
  • Advanced Camouflage: Roidmudes can generate disguises through film-layers around their body that function similar to the cerebral cortex.
  • Data Mimicry: Roidmudes can transform their bodies into data to travel within the electricity/cyberspace while in their Core modes. They can as well temporarily morph their bodies into data to easily phase through solid objects.
  • Energy Attack: Plain Roidmudes all have machine-gun-like fingers from which they can fire energy bullets. This feature is forsaken for greater power upon evolution into an Advanced Roidmude.
  • Wall Crawling: Spider Type Roidmudes possess the ability to climb walls. This feature is forsaken for greater power upon evolution into an Advanced Roidmude.
  • Webbing: Spider Type Roidmudes can generate spider webs from their mouth to their liking. They can even spit an energized version which as strong as their finger blasts. This feature is forsaken for greater power upon evolution into an Advanced Roidmude.

  • Height: 232 cm
  • Weight: 131 kg

After awakening the past Roidmude 108, "Eiji" merges with it, coining this evolution as a Supreme Evolved (超絶進化 Chōzetsu Shinka). Its appearance is identical to the Over Evolved State (超進化態 Chō Shinka-tai), sporting a golden body.

Powers and Abilities

  • Heavy Acceleration: The signature ability of the Roidmude is to somehow slow down the movement of surrounding objects', including that of humans, with their unaffected consciousness aware of their impass during this time. One can be protected by the Heavy Acceleration effect by carrying Shift Cars or Signal Bikes on their person.
  • Global Freeze: Unlike most Advanced Roidmudes whose Heavy Acceleration ability affects a certain radius, Paradox is able to create a Global Freeze entirely on his own which envelopes the entire Earth. Paradox is also able to create a more powerful version of the Global Freeze which completely freezes any movement on Earth. Only the Shift Next Special Car has been known to be able to counter these effects.
  • Advanced Camouflage: Roidmudes can generate disguises through film-layers around their body that function similar to the cerebral cortex.
  • Data Mimicry: Roidmudes can transform their bodies into data to travel within the electricity/cyberspace while in their Core modes. They can as well temporarily morph their bodies into data to easily phase through solid objects.
  • Weapon Absorption: Paradox is able to absorb Drive's weapons into his own body, allowing him to upgrade his body parts. This was shown by absorbing the Handle-Ken, gaining sharp claws on his right hand.
  • Energy Blast: Paradox is able to create a large blue energy sphere and use it as a blast attack.
  • Arm Cannon: Paradox is armed with an arm cannon which he can manifest at will.

Type Next (タイプネクスト Taipu Nekusuto) is Dark Drive's futuristic mercedes-based form. Accessed through the Next side of the Shift Next Special Car, this form bears the Type Next Tire (タイプネクストタイヤ Taipu Nekusuto Taiya).

Without a user, Dark Drive can operate autonomously like a remote-controlled drone, accepting orders and executing them. It is noted that in this specific configuration, Dark Drive without a host is weaker to some degree. The body of the autonomous Dark Drive can be recreated with its Drive Driver and Shift Brace intact.

Notes

Who is Dark Drive

Who is Dark Drive?

  • The identity of Dark Drive was the subject of mystery in the run-up to the premiere of Surprise Future, with a trailer following the Drive episode airing on the Sunday before the film's release offering six suspects: Go Shijima, Krim Steinbelt, Chase, Kiriko Shijima, Eiji Tomari, and Shinji Koba. Ultimately, it turned out to be technically both Krim and Eiji, but in reality neither of them due to the Paradox Roidmude disguising as them.
  • The usage of Drive Driver requires compatibility with its user. Meaning, when 108 stole Eiji's identity, he also stole his compatibility.
  • Paradox Roidmude is the only Rider who is technically not a Dark Rider (but still official), as he stole the power from Eiji and only changed the name of the Drive Type Next identity without transforming the form of Future Drive.
  • Paradox Roidmude, as his name suggests, is itself a paradox, as his own destruction in the past altered the future, negating his future self's existence, thus preventing him from traveling back to the present and evolving into his advanced form in the first place.
  • Paradox Roidmude is the only Drive Rider to have a A.R. World counterpart, or otherwise.
