The Transformation Belt Seiken Swordriver (変身ベルト聖剣ソードライバー Henshin Beruto Seiken Sōdoraibā, lit. "Transformation Belt Holy Sword Swordriver")[1][2], or simply Swordriver, is the transformation device used by Kamen Rider Saber, Kamen Rider Blades, and Kamen Rider Espada who use it with the Kaenken Rekka, Suiseiken Nagare, and Raimeiken Ikazuchi, respectively.

Design

The Seiken Swordriver is composed of the following parts:

  • Right Shelf (ライトシェルフ Raito Sherufu) - The right-hand slot to store the Wonder Ride Book on the Seiken Swordriver. In addition to bringing out the power from the Wonder Ride Book, which has a good compatibility with the God Beasts, and transmitting it to the Seiken, it brings various abilities to the right half or "Ride Right" of the body that strongly influences the sword technique of the swordsman's "Sword Robe" armor.
  • Mid Shelf (ミッドシェルフ Middo Sherufu) - The middle slot to store the Wonder Ride Book on the Seiken Swordriver. In addition to bringing out the power from the Wonder Ride Book, which has a good compatibility with the Animals, and transmitting it to the Seiken, it brings various abilities to the central "Ride Mid" of the body, which enhances the physical ability of the swordsman's "Sword Robe" armor.
  • Left Shelf (レフトシェルフ Refuto Sherufu) - The left-hand slot to store Wonder Ride Book on the Seiken Swordriver. In addition to bringing out the power from the Wonder Ride Book, which has a good affinity with the Stories, and transmitting it to the Seiken, it brings various abilities to the left side or "Ride Left" of the body that strongly affects the activation of the special ability of the swordsman's "Sword Robe" armor.
  • Wonder Generator (ワンダージェネレーター Wandā Jenerētā) - The Seiken Swordriver's energy generator. It has the role of extracting the energy of all things in the universe that included in the Wonder Ride Book and generating "Wonderful Energy".
  • Ride Spell Line (ライドスペルライン Raido Superu Rain) - the circuit-like pathways to the slots that hold Wonder Ride Books. Tells the Seiken the abilities of the Wonder Ride Book read by the Seiken Swordriver.
  • Swordriver Belt (ソードライバーベルト Sōdoraibā Beruto) - Seiken Swordriver's sword belt. It is usually stored in the main body, but when transformed, it is automatically deployed and fixed to the waist of the user. After that, in response to the awakening of the Seiken, it plays the role of deploying the "Sword Robe", the armor of the swordsman.

To be added

Transformation

To transform, the user simply plugs a Wonder Ride Book into its corresponding slot on the belt before pulling out the sword. Each Rider's transformation slightly differs:

  • Kamen Rider Saber: After activating the Wonder Ride Book, he appears in a library surrounded by flames. He makes two slashes in form of 'X' before a dragon released from the Wonder Ride Book covers him and forms armor, with the energy emitted from said slashes forming the rest of the helmet, completing the transformation.
    • Transforming with two books results in the books appearing the same way as if transforming with one, Saber being in a library surrounded by fire, with the effects of the additional book being included in the transformation, resulting in additional armor equipped to the section the book affects.
  • Kamen Rider Blades: After activating the Wonder Ride Book, he appears in a library surrounded by surging water. A water-based lion emerges from the book, and then circles him after making one horizontal slash, before the lion merges with him to form armor, and the energy emitted from the slash forming the visor, completing the transformation.
  • When more than one Rider transforms at the same time the design of the library background and the associated element tied to the transformation will be divided within the area in which each Rider stands.

Finisher

Main article: Finisher (Saber)

There are five ways to activate a finisher with the Seiken Swordriver:

  1. Pulling the trigger on the sword twice while it's docked in the belt.
  2. Pulling the trigger on the sword and pulling it out.
  3. Scanning up to three Wonder Ride Books on the sword's tip.
  4. Docking the sword into the left-hand Hissatsuholder, pulling the trigger, and pulling it back out.
  5. Pressing the left page of an inserted Wonder Ride Book.
