Rider Hunter Silva (ライダーハンター・シルバ Raidā Hantā Shiruba) is one of the many members of Dai-Zangyack, an alliance of all the enemies of the Super Sentai teams, led by Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red, rivaling Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade and the revived Dai-Shocker.
Previously known as Bio Hunter Silva (バイオハンター・シルバ Baio Hantā Shiruba), he is now Rider Hunter Silva due to his new purpose to defeat all Kamen Riders. Silva overthrew Marvelous and joined forces with Doktor G and Dai-Shocker to destroy the Kamen Riders and Super Sentai. The two evil organizations united and faced off against the combined forces of the Sentai and Riders. Silva also possessed the means to fuse the Gigant Horse of Dai-Zangyack with Dai-Shocker's Crisis Fortress into a Big Machine mech. He was later destroyed by the GokaiGalleon Buster's Tajadol Charge when the Gokaigers took the form of Kamen Rider OOO's Combos through Gokai Changes.
Behind the scenes
Bio Hunter Silva, along with the Black Cross King and Baseball Mask, was one of the only three Showa era Sentai villains to return in Super Hero Taisen, with the rest coming from the Heisei period, while Dai-Shocker had a more diverse age range of villains.
In his appearance in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen, Rider Hunter Silva was voiced by Kazuo Hayashi (林 一夫 Hayashi Kazuo), who was his original voice actor in Bioman. Rider Hunter Silva's suit actor was Kazutoshi Yokoyama (横山 一敏 Yokoyama Kazutoshi).
