When equipped with the Shuriken Starter, the Miraidriver of Kamen Rider Shinobi becomes the Shinobidriver (シノビドライバー Shinobi Doraibā)[1] When not in use, the entire belt is liquefied and stored within a Shinobi Hyoutan (シノビヒョウタン Shinobi Hyōtan, lit. "Shinobi Gourd").

Design

The Shinobidriver is composed of the following parts:

  • Gama Element (ガマエレメント Gama Eremento): The main body of the Shinobidriver. By using the elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water, the Gama Element is able to materialize armor and weapons through the Kurogane Oogama (クロガネオオガマ Kurogane Oogama) toad robot. The Gama Element also creates Shinobi Energy (シノビエナジー Shinobi Enajī), which drastically raises the user's physical abilities, giving them superhuman strength and agility.
  • Shinobi Engine (シノビエンジン Shinobi Enjin) The Shinobidriver's power source. When the Shuriken Starter is spun, the Gama Element's power flows into the Shinobi Engine, which amplifies it using the Super Hazumi Wheel (スーパーハズミホイール Sūpā Hazumi Hoīru, lit. 'Super Inertia Wheel').
  • Shuriken Starter (シュリケンスターター Shuriken Sutātā) - A starter key used to initiate the transformation into Kamen Rider Shinobi. When spun it collects the five elements necessary to transform from the surrounding environment.
    • Menkyo Kaiden Plate (メンキョカイデンプレート Menkyo Kaiden Purēto): A purple device integrated into the Shuriken Starter. It identifies the user of the Shinobi Starter, presumably only allowing Rentaro to transform into Kamen Rider Shinobi. It also stores Shinobi's battle data.

Functionality

To transform into Kamen Rider Shinobi, Rentaro slots the Shuriken Starter onto the face of the Shinobidriver and spins it. After spinning the crank Shuriken Starter again, Shinobi can activate a finisher or some Ninja Techniques.

Shinobi can also coat his body in his flames to shield him from attacks. It’s also used to cover his body in a flame barrier.
  • Ninpo: Bunshin no Jutsu (忍法: 分身の術 Ninpō Bunshin no Jutsu, lit. "Ninja Art: Replication Technique"): Shinobi creates three Clones of himself, and does a series of four elements energy slashes at the enemy.
