|This article is about a/an monstrous Rider in Kamen Rider Zi-O.|
This version of the Paradox Roidmude (パラドックスロイミュード Paradokkusu Roimyūdo), also known as Roidmude 108 (ロイミュード１０８ Roimyūdo Ichi Zero Hachi), summoned by Swartz to become Another Drive (アナザードライブ Anazā Doraibu), an Another Rider based on Kamen Rider Drive Type Speed.
- Motif basis:
- Low-Class: Spider
- Advanced: Time portal, wormhole, timeline
- Human form/synchronizes:
- Ora (オーラ Ōra)
- Destroyed by: Kamen Rider Grand Zi-O All Twenty Time Break & Drive Type Speed's SpeeDrop
In presumably an altered variation of the events during Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future, the Paradox Roidmude most likely defeated Shinnosuke Tomari. He was later brought to the main universe by Swartz, impersonated Ora and became Another Drive.
Paradox Roidmude later taunted a weakened Ora by strangling her, resulting in Ora killing Heure. Witnessing this, Paradox laughed and exclaiming that no matter what, he and Ora are the same. Unfortunately, his action put Sougo into a blind rage as he transformed into Grand Zi-O, summoning Kamen Rider Drive to aid him and initiating the All Twenty Time Break and Speed Drop to mercilessly destroy the Roidmude Cores.
After awakening the past Roidmude 108, "Eiji" merges with it, coining this evolution as a Supreme Evolution (超絶進化 Chōzetsu Shinka). Its appearance is identical to the Super Evolution 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.
- ―Transformation announcement[src]
- Rider Height: 199 cm
- Rider Weight: 102 kg
- Creator: Swartz
- Year of Origin: 2019
- Position of year: Left Shoulder
- Name and position: "DRIVE"; Left Pectoral
- Powers and Abilities
- Shift Tire Creation: Another Drive can create and launch wheel projectiles at their opponent. So far it's a red variant of Midnight Shadow and what seems to be a fusion between the former and Max Flare.
- Energy Beams: Another Drive can shoot beams from the dented car door on his left arm. This is a nod to the Door-Ju.
- Another Tridoron: Another Drive can summon this vehicle to help him out, however it was destroyed along with Another Drive.
- Time Jackers: Anyone with Time Jacker abilities can cancel out Another Drive's Heavy Acceleration field. However, it doesn't affect Another Drive permanently like everyone else as he was able to barely move opposed to everyone else being frozen in place.

Behind the scenes
While impersonating Ora, Roidmude 108 is portrayed by Ayaka Konno (紺野 彩夏 Konno Ayaka) who also voices his Another Rider form. His suit actor as an Another Rider is Eitoku (永徳), who is best known as the suit actor of most secondary Heisei Riders.
- The existence of Another Drive was foreshadowed by the erection of his statue shown outside Another Zi-O II's residence.
- Another Drive's face design is similar to the Autobots from the Transformers film series, though he behaves more like a Decepticon due to him being a twisted version of Kamen Rider Drive.
- Another Drive's use of Heavy Acceleration is a nod to Mr. Belt's words in episode 6 that the Drive System can also initiate the same ability as the Roidmudes. Ironically, Drive was the only Rider of his own series not to use this.
- Keeping with Kamen Rider Drive's "Knight Rider meets Kamen Rider" slogan, Another Drive is loosely based on the incarnation of K.A.R.R. from the 2008-2009 TV series, which transforms into a robot.
- Since he comes from an alternate timeline and both Roidmudes have merged together, Paradox most likely became Kamen Rider Dark Drive before the fusion between androids.
- This would make Paradox the fourth Legend Rider to become an Another Rider after Kuroto Dan (Another OOO), Dark Shinji (Another Ryuga), & Sou Yaguruma (Another Kabuto)
- Of this, he is the second Dark Rider to become an Another Rider after Dark Shinji; but the first of these to become the Another version of his heroic/rival counterpart, since Dark Shinji was an Another version of his own Rider power.
- Paradox is the only Another World Rider to not transform into his Rider identity. Although the reason why he didn't appear as Dark Drive in Zi-O might have to do with the Roidmude discarding the Drive Driver after successfully awakening his present-day counterpart.
- Production wise, the Dark Drive suit was remodelled for Kamen Rider Hattari's suit design.
- As with most Another Riders, Paradox as Another Drive is both opposite to Shinnosuke Tomari and Krim Steinbelt/Mr. Belt. While Shinnosuke and Krim unite together as Kamen Rider Drive to protect humanity, Roidmude 108 from the year 2035 seeks to unite with his 2015 counterpart to achieve Supreme Evolution and destroy humanity.
- He is the third male Roidmude to assume the human disguise of an opposite gender, the previous ones being Iron Roidmude (as Iyo Sawai) and Roidmude 096 (as Lila Nanao).
