This article is about a/an character in Kamen Rider Drive.

Shinji Koba (古葉 進次 Koba Shinji) is a deputy officer of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department and a minor antagonist before turning into the aide of Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future. During the events of the film, he ordered the police to execute Shinnosuke at the height of the crisis caused by Dark Drive. Later, after Kiriko Shijima confronted him, he gave the order for the police to assist Shinnosuke in fighting Dark Drive and the Future Roidmudes.


Shinji is a strong believer that Police Officer has to deliver justice to protect its citizen no matter what is the sacrifice. This belief gives him a blind spot for not able to see even accept the fact that Shinnosuke is being tricked.

However, Shinji is reasonable enough after he has been pushed towards the edge to turn the tide of the situation and calling his troops to aid Shinnosuke.
