Ryo Mikami (三上 了 Mikami Ryō) is a character in Kamen Rider Blade.
Mikami is a Takoyaki cooker. He is the son of a Team Iroha manager. He has a girlfriend named Michi (Team Hoheto manager's daughter). His face looks just like Hajime Aikawa (Kamen Rider Chalice). After his father and his girlfriend mistakenly choose Hajime over him and thinking Ryo is an impostor to the amnesiac Undead, he is offered by his girlfriend's father to join Hoheto instead as Hoheto's Ultimate Taiyaki Master.
Despite seeing Hajime as an Undead enemy, but also a Kamen Rider, Ryo assists him to get Serpent Undead weakened. In the end, both Takoyaki teams began to reconcile as a business partner whereas he and Michi are now happily married in their wedding, while Hajime finally regained his memories, seeing Ryo happily ever after, and departs to his previous occupation.
His personality is the complete opposite of Hajime. Whereas Hajime is calm with a monstrous intent, Ryo is a happy-go-lucky man who tends to be a scaredy-cat.
Taiyaki Master Ultimate Form
The Secret Weapon Taiyaki Master Ultimate Form (秘密兵器鯛焼き名人アルティメットフォーム Himitsu Heiki Taiyaki Meijin Arutimetto Fōmu) armor is worn by Ryo Mikami during the competition between teams Hoheto and Iroha. By flicking a switch on his armor, he can activate his Ultimate Form Special Turbo (アルティメットフォームスペシャルターボ Arutimetto Fōmu Supesharu Tābo) ability, which allows him to move at fast speeds.

Behind the Scenes
Many fans portrayed Ryo as Hajime as if he's the same guy with developed emotions.
- Due to Human Undead's victory 10,000 years ago in the last Battle Fight (which populated the Earth with humans in return), It is extremely likely that Ryo Mikami and his father may be descendants of Human Undead, with Ryo being the most apparent by both blood and physical appearance.
- Taiyaki Master Ultimate Form shares similarities to Kamen Rider Kuuga's Ultimate Form in terms of name and color (Black and Gold). Coincidentially, Taiyaki Master Ultimate Form has the same number of TV appearances as Kuuga's Ultimate Form, being only one episode.
- Despite this, Taiyaki Master Ultimate Form is never considered a Rider despite the design.
