Rintaro Shindo (新堂 倫太郎, Shindō Rintarō) is a 23-year-old[1](31 as of Trio of Deep Sin) member of the Sword of Logos who transforms into Kamen Rider Blades (仮面ライダーブレイズ, Kamen Raidā Bureizu).



Rintaro training with his master, Kenshin

Rintaro Shindo was born the son of Shinjiro Shinozaki and an unnamed woman. When Rintaro was still very young, his father left the family due to the nature of his job. Very soon, Rintaro had lost his mother as well and became orphaned, later becoming adopted by the Sword of Logos. He spent the majority of his early childhood with Kenshin Nagamine, who had trained him to inherit Lion Senki and Suiseiken Nagare. When he was seventeen, Rintaro received training from Ryo Ogami.

The Water Swordsman

Rintaro Shindo arrived to witness Touma Kamiyama, a “Homo Sapien”, transforming into Kamen Rider Saber to vanquish the Golem Megid. Arriving to his bookstore riding a blue lion, he approched Touma to hand over the Brave Dragon Wonder Ride Book before bringing the novelist to the Northern Base of the Sword of Logos to meet Sophia. Rintaro demostrates his ability to transform into Kamen Rider Blades and together, he and Saber were able to subdue the Ari and Kirigirisu Megid. When Mei Sudo greeted Rintaro with a box of éclairs, he revealed his love for sweets.

Rintaro transformed into Kamen Rider Blades

Rintaro would continue to teach Touma about the organization as well as its warriors, the Kamen Riders. He helped introduce Touma to Kento Fukamiya, both happened to be forgotten childhood friends and the current Kamen Rider Espada, along with Ryo Ogami, Tetsuo Daishinji, and Ren Akamichi. While exploring the city with Mei, Rintaro encountered Zooous and discovered he was responsible for his master's death. Rintaro began training himself to simultaneously use three Wonder Ride Books to avenge his master. Although he defeated Zooous after accessing Blades Fantastic Lion, Rintaro realized that he shouldn't yearn for vengeance.

Kamen Rider Saber: The Phoenix Swordsman and the Book of Ruin

When the Immortal Swordsman, Bahato, unleashes his destruction to the world using the Book of Ruin, Rintaro joined with the Northern Base swordsmen to battle in Wonder World. Kamen Rider Blades engaged the Shimi horde as Saber fought Falchion personally. Rintaro, intent on fighting for the future of all "Homo Sapiens", wiped out the Shimi army with his fellow Swordsmen before Falchion was sealed away by Saber Emotional Dragon.

Final Showdown with Calibur

Following multiple encounters with the mysterious Kamen Rider Calibur, Rintaro forms a pact with Touma and Kento to stick to each other through the end. While the three battled Calibur together, Rintaro learns the man behind the mask was Daichi Kamijo, the previous Saber fifteen years ago. Realizing Kento's unstable emotions, he empathizes the feelings of losing a father figure but warns him that revenge was not the answer. While Rintaro was injured in an attempt to protect Kento from Calibur, he would learn about Luna whom Rintaro would inform Touma of, causing Touma to regain his memories.

While Rintaro became Blades to join his fellow swordsmen battle Calibur Jaoh Dragon, he was still not in good condition to fight. Kento would jump in to shield Rintaro, leading to his teammate to be lost into the darkness. As Kamijo enacted to seize the Almighty Book, Rintaro awaited for his latest upgrade using the powers of Lion Senki, Peter Fanatasista, and Tenkuu no Pegasus, along with King of Arthur. Rintaro transformed into transformed into Blades King Lion Daisenki to hold off the Megid while Saber chased after Calibur. Rintaro and the rest of the Northern Base swordsmen would warmly welcome Touma back once he returned from the in the realm of the Almighty Book.

Sword of Logos Conspiracy

Following the defeat of Calibur and Sophia's disappearance, Reika Shindai appeared to the Northern Base swordsmen to accuse Touma had betrayed the Sword of Logos. While Touma defended himself that there's a true enemy within the guild, Rintaro was forced to fight his friend due to his blind faith in the organization, claiming that they were like family to him. While the intervention of Kamen Rider Saikou forced the Northern Base swordsmen to draw back, Rintaro remained conflicted with fighting Touma, especially with his latest claims that the Megid are using human hosts to spawn more monsters.

While Rintaro eventually believed the Megid are using human victims, he still denied the fact that there is a true enemy hiding within the guild. He was further depressed after Daishinji and Ogami left the guild to join Touma. His friendship with Touma was strained and despite his attempts to repairing their bond. But Rintaro would often return back to the Sword of Logos, persistent that they were his "family". Rintaro would witness Touma turning berserk from Saber Primitive Dragon's effects and Kento's return as the current Calibur in his crusade to seal every Seiken.

After defending the city from Legeiel while Touma tried to tame the Primitive Dragon, Rintaro witnessed Touma's evolution into Saber Elemental Primitive Dragon. Deciding to settle his unfinished affairs, he stayed in the Southern Base to investigate whether there is a traitor. After discovering Reika Shindai had locked Sophia away, he tried to report this to Master Logos, only to learn that the Sword of Logos' leader is the actual traitor himself. While he was intercepted by Kamen Rider Durendal, Ryoga Shindai, Rintaro was rescued by Touma and Yuri only barely surviving.

With Rintaro's confidence back, Touma and him cooperate to save Mei.

Rintaro was welcomed back in open arms in the Northern Base. While he admired Touma's ability to separate Megid, the both of them are in total despair after Zooous turned Mei into the Neko Megid. Rintaro had turned mentally unstable, him lashing out at Touma for priotizing him over Mei. However, these feelings were out of his lack of self-confidence. After engaging in a duel with Touma which further advanced Rintaro's mastery over Suiseiken Nagare, the two team up once again and successfully separate Mei from the Neko Megid.

War against Master Logos

Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki after defeating Zooous

When Master Logos disabled the Northern Base defenses, the Megid and the Shindai siblings raid the base. Rintaro joined with Ogami to hold off the Megid forces and face off against Zooous Predator. While Sophia begged him and everyone to escape while she held off Zooous, Rintaro's determination to protect his friend allowed the Almighty Book fragment to respond to him, allowing him to assume his final form, Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki. With the spirits of the previous swordsmen fighting alongside with him, Blades was able to finally vanquish Zooous and find closure with his master's memory.

Through Tategami Hyoujuusenki's power, Rintaro was able to overcome the Shindai siblings in battle. When Luna made her return and had gone missing, Rintaro went out to search for her and is forced to surrender Suiseiken Nagare and his Wonder Ride Books when Ogami and Daishinji were held hostage. While Touma managed to foil Master Logos' ritual to summon the Almighty Book, Master Logos is able to obtain a portion of the Almighty Book and transform into Kamen Rider Solomon, who prove to be a formidable adversary.

Rintaro reunites with his fellow swordsmen.

Rintaro comes to the Shindai siblings' aid after the pair turned on Master Logos. As Solomon enacted his destruction to the world, Blades joined the Kamen Riders to stop the mad tyrant but is overwhelmed. Standing alongside the other swordsmen, as well as Kento who has finally agreed to rejoin the team, Rintaro would bear witness to Haouken Xross Saber's creation and the arrival of Kamen Rider Xross Saber.

Kamen Rider Specter × Blades

Rintaro and Mei went out to town for ice cream, only to run into Copy Kanon. Rintaro is astonished by Copy Kanon's strength, realizing she is not a normal "Homo sapien". As the remnants of Danton's faction sought to capture Copy Kanon, he would encounter the real Kanon Fukami to help protect Copy Kanon. Rintaro joins forces with Kamen Rider Specter, Makoto Fukami, and access Specter Gekikou Senki's power and take down Kamiyu and Muller. In the aftermath, he expressed envy towards Makoto for having so many siblings, but Rintaro is reaffirmed that Touma and Mei are his family.

Kamen Rider Blades' rollcall in Superhero Senki

One day, Touma was sent to the world of Kikai Sentai ZenkaigerIcon-crosswiki.png with Mei Sudo and Yuri as a result of Asmodeus' awakening. However, Rintaro Shindo would meet the remaining Zenkaigers and brought them over to the Northern Base. Once brought over to the world of Journey to the West, Kamen Rider Blades and ZenkaizerIcon-crosswiki.png meet with the Taros under the guise of the Journey to the West protagonists to face the demon king while also facing the Sentai Megid. While he reunites with Touma again, Rintaro hesitantly reveals their adventures were a story the entire time and is subsqently erased from Shotaro's imagination as the latter felt unsatisfied over having the right hero to draw.

When Asmodeus raised more monsters, Touma and Shotaro arrived with their latest creations. Touma unveils Super Hero Senki, while Shotaro unveils Kamen Rider 1 and Himitsu Sentai GorengerIcon-crosswiki.png, allowing the Kamen Riders and Sentai Rangers to remanifest. Rintaro as Kamen Rider Blades joins his fellow swordsmen, the Kamen Riders, and the Super Sentai to battle Asmodeus's forces, emerging victorious in the ensuing battle.

Final Battle against Solomon

With Xross Saber's power, Rintaro would continue to stand alongside Touma against Solomon. He continued to accompany Touma as they and Kento entered Wonder World to save Luna from Master Logos. Despite Solomon's attempts to control him, Espada, and Saikou against Saber, Blades manages to break free. Rintaro lends Xross Saber the power of Lion Senki to access Featuring Saber. With the powers of Brave Dragon, Lion Senki, and Lamp do Alangina, they were able to finally vanquish Solomon and shatter the Omni Force Wonder Ride Book. In the aftermath of Master Logos' defeat, Rintaro joins with Touma and Kento as they crossed their Seikens having fulfilling their promise to each other.

Storious' Endgame

Though they were victorious against Master Logos, Storious began to enact his plan to destroy the world. Following Tassel's death, the destruction of World World began affecting Earth. Rintaro participated in minimizing the disaster, but Storious grew stronger after becoming Kamen Rider Storious, ressurecting the Four Sages in the process as his loyal followers.

As the final battle approaches, Kamen Rider Blades joins the swordsmen as they storm Storious' Tower of Destruction. Rintaro engaged a Lord of Wise, while covering for Touma as he reached Storious' chamber. Although he succeeded in defeating it, the battle was too exhausting for Rintaro, causing him to pass out and it was only Yuri's healing ability that allowed him to stand up.

Rintaro arrived in Storious' chamber to protect Touma with Kento. He would bear witness to the creation of the Wonder Almighty. Rintaro transforms into Kamen Rider Blades and with the help of Saber and Espada, they defeat Storious. As the world began to disintegate, Rintaro and Kento were forced to witness Touma's death as the world disappeared around them. However, once Touma became the Guardian of Wonder World, Rintaro was amoung the populace resurrected in the restored Earth.

One Year Later

One year later, Rintaro accompanied Mei in an award ceremony where she accepted Touma's award from his published novel, Eternal Story. Upon hearing word that the missing victims that were unaccounted for had suddenly returned, Rintaro joined up with most of Touma's friends as they reunited with their missing friend once more.

Kamen Rider: Beyond Generations

Fenix's Kamen Riders and the Sword of Logos

Rintaro was at an outing with Mei, Ogami, and Sora when he reunites with Ikki Igarashi at Happy Spa. He was called back by Sophia following the Crisper's attack on the Southern Base, leading him to solicit Touma's assistance. Joining forces with the Kamen Rider Revice duo once more, they stand to fight the demon Diablo, who emerged to threaten the Earth's future. They would also encounter time-displaced Shocker scientist Ryunosuke Momose, who sought to make amends with Hideo, his young son he left behind in 1971, who is now an adult man in 2021.

Kamen Rider Blades with Slash

Rintaro joins Vice, Daiji, Sakura, Touma, and Yuri to venture to the future, while promising Mei that he will confess his feelings to her. He would meet an elderly George Karizaki, who assisted the heroes by granting them to access to Clone Riders forms. Rintaro would assume the forms of Blade, ZO, and Kuuga. Upon returning to the present, Kamen Rider Blades would arrive in Egypt to assist Slash defeating the Khufu Crisper.

Kamen Rider Saber: Trio of Deep Sin

Eight years after saving the world, the multiple swordsmen within the Sword of Logos have begun to disappear, with Rintaro catching wind of strange phenomenon. He goes to investigate the incident with Daishinji, to which a white Kamen Rider Falchion appears and makes Daishinji vanish. Falchion reveals himself to be Shinjiro Shinozaki, who claimed to be Rintaro's father who left him when he was very young due to his line of work. Due to the Sword of Logos' battles, many lives were lost as collateral and Shinjiro sought to never let such tragedies happen again.

As a result of the swordsmen disappearing, Rintaro began to forget memories of his comrades. The next day, Rintaro as Kamen Rider Blades confronts Shinjiro. While he was shaken by a terrifying illusion of the victims from the swordsmen's battles. Rintaro swears to never forget those whose lives were lost and transforms into Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki to vanquish Falchion in battle. Although defeating Shinjiro, Rintaro embraces Shinjiro as his father during his final moments before he himself vanished.

After Mamiya rewrote reality, the events that followed the last eight years was undone and Rintaro was restored back to life. Rintaro met with Mei for their date, who was mad that he was wearing his Sword of Logos uniform. Unbeknownst to him, Shinjiro had passed by him and seemingly proud at his son being happy at a distance.

Rintaro appears to be serious and difficult to approach from first glance, but on the contrary, he is actually quite down-to-earth and was willing to teach Touma the ins-and-outs of becoming an effective Kamen Rider, though Touma's rather unorthodox methods of fighting often leaves him flabbergasted. However due to his upbringing, Rintaro has little to no practical experience in everyday culture in general, despite being extremely knowledgeable about it through books. This is made apparent when he arrives at Touma's bookstore for the first time while riding a blue lion because he had read that it is rude to enter with his shoes on. He also demonstrates this through his first time winning and holding an instant camera. Rintaro also has a keen eye for good food, especially after his love for sweets was discovered.

As a child, Rintaro was orphaned at a young age and was raised solely by the Sword of Logos. Through his life-long devotion to the organization, he holds them to a high regard and feels indoctrinated into disbelieving or refusing to hear out any claims of corruption within the organization itself. As a result, Rintaro became unable to leave the organization for the longest time, despite knowing the organization's wrongdoings. When Touma did not hesitate to risk giving up his powers to save Rintaro's life from Ryoga Shindai, proclaiming their close and strong familial friendship. Touma act of kindness, coupled by the revelation of Master Logos' treachery convinced Rintaro to ultimately leave the Sword of Logos for good and join his team.

Rintaro holds great emotional attachment to those he considers friends and family, which extends to not only Touma's team but also to the members of the Sword of Logos itself. He sought revenge against Zooous for the death of Kenshin Nagamine, who he saw not only as a mentor, but also a father, a spot filled from the absence of Rintaro's biological father, whom he would not meet until he was in his 30s. Since learning that revenge wasn't the answer, Rintaro felt guilty and week for being unable to save Kento Fukamiya from his own acts of revenge. Since learning of Master Logo's treachery and being saved from Ryoga, Rintaro suffered an emotional breakdown, recognizing his own fears of losing more people he loved. Rintaro also began to evaluate his own self worth after becoming desperate and unable to save Mei from the Neko Megid, believing that saving her was more important than his own life when Touma chose to rescue him instead. When given a full-display of Touma's emotions during their 1-vs-1 duel, Rintaro understood Touma's belief in him and renewed his faith in himself, thus allowing him to finally master Suiseiken Nagare. Rintaro bravery and valor had ultimately rewarded him with the Tategami Hyoujuusenki Wonder Ride Book, which he used to defeat Zooous.

Rintaro has several variants of the same catchphrase that begin with "I swear on the Suiseiken Nagare..." (水勢剣流水に誓う, Suiseiken Nagare ni chikau...), and end with:

  • "...that I shall protect the balance of this world!" (世界の均衡は僕が守る!, ...sekai no kinkō wa boku ga mamoru!)
  • "...that I shall protect the people that I love!" (大切な人たちは僕が守る!, ...taisetsu'na hito-tachi wa boku ga mamoru!)

Powers and Abilities


  • Megid Separation: During the training duel with Touma, Rintaro began to showcase further mastery over Suiseiken Nagare after some rough guidance. While his technique is imperfect, he can combine his efforts with Touma to successfully separate Human and Megid, evidenced when the two rescued Mei from the Neko Megid.[Chapter 31: Believing in Strength, Strength Believed In.]
  • Spirit Medium: After obtaining the Tategami Hyoujuusenki Wonder Ride Book, Rintaro can communicate with spirits of his predecessors, as demonstrated by doing so with his mentor Kenshin when defeating Zooous. He can also communicate with predecessors of other swordsmen in battle, such as Buster and Espada's predecessors. [Chapter 32: My Thoughts, Crystallized.]


  • Expert Swordsman: As a member of the Sword of Logos, Rintaro is a trained swordsman, demonstrating mastery at using Suiseiken Nagare when fighting his enemies or opponents[Chapter 2: The Water Swordsman, Along With a Blue Lion.]. After being out of action under Southern Base's command there was a power gap between him and his friends and foes, though through rejoining Touma he had grown stronger, being able to go almost toe-to-toe with Zooous and even outmatch Durendal later on.
  • Indomitable Will: Rintaro has shown on several occasions to have an unshakable will to fight, even against enemies he could not win against. He has had his fair share of moments of self-conflict and questioning himself and his beliefs, but when he makes up his mind he vigorously fights to protect until he is severely injured and cannot stand up anymore.

Former Weaknesses

  • Power Strain: During his training at Liberation, Rintaro had to train himself to harness Tenkuu no Pegasus, Lion Senki, and Peter Fantasista, which were three Ride Books of the same element. Although attempting to transform placed a heavy strain on body during his early attempts, he was successfully able to return to the battle overcoming the strain. [Chapter 7: The Sword of the King, Lies in Avalon.]

  • As with the naming scheme of all the Saber Riders, Blades' name is the plural form of the word "blade", the razor portion of a sword.
  • As with the surname scheme of other members of Sword of Logos, Rintaro's surname, Shindo, contains a homophone of the kanji Shin () meaning "god" or "deity".

Concept Art


  • According to Yamaguchi, he had some input into the design of Rintaro's Sword of Logo's uniform, and took inspiration from the garbs worn by the Jedi Knights in Star Wars.[13]
  • Rintaro is a rare case among secondary riders in that he doesn't initially antagonize the main rider upon first meeting them. As of recent, the only other instances where that was the case was with Iori Izumi and Akira Date.
