Based on a spiky hotrod, Shift Funky Spike (シフトファンキースパイク Shifuto Fankī Supaiku) is a sentient Type Speed Shift Car which allows Drive to gain the Funky Spike Shift Tire, enabling him to either shoot spikes or impale enemies on the Shift Tire. By itself, it can attack by slamming itself into enemies while extending its spikes. If used in Mashin Chaser's Break Gunner, it turns the Revenger Pikes on his Break Gunner into sharp spikes for either punching or shooting when needed.

Alongside Max Flare and Midnight Shadow, Funky Spike was one of the three Tire Exchange Shift Cars used by Shinnosuke Tomari when he first became Drive. As such, they would typically seen on the Shift Car Holder he wore on the strap of his Drive Driver, with the Shift Cars protecting him from Heavy Acceleration.

Character History

006 Spike GF

Funky Spike defeating 006.

During the Global Freeze of April 2014, Funky Spike fought with its fellow Shift Cars under the lead of Kamen Rider Protodrive, to stop the Roidmude revolution occuring in Japan. During the battle, Funky Spike personally destroyed the body of the Cobra Type Roidmude 006. The Shift Car was, however, unable to terminate the Roidmude's Core and so its opponent ultimately survived the encounter.

Six months after the Global Freeze, Funky Spike was brought forth by Mr. Belt alongside Max Flare and Midnight Shadow to protect Shinnosuke Tomari from Roidmude 029. Following Max Flare, Funky Spike was sent again with Midnight Shadow by Kiriko Shijima to assist Shinnosuke, who had transformed into the new Kamen Rider Drive, against 029. Finally, Funky Spike came second in the succession of Drive's first three Tire Exchanges. Assuming the form of Type Speed Spike, Drive performed the Spike Tornado attack to destroy the body of Roidmude 042, whose Core was soon after destroyed once it collided with 088.
