Kamen Rider Wiki
Icon-krorig.pngThis article is about a henchmen group in Kamen Rider, the original series.

The Shocker Combatmen (ショッカー戦闘員, Shokkā Sentōin, 1-80) are troopers used by Shocker in their goal for world domination. While some are slightly modified humans, others are said to be creations of the Shocker Leader who are not really alive but puppets that follow every command of him.

Throughout the series, the Shocker Combatmen are slowly enhanced with time, with their final version proving much stronger than their original counterparts. However, extremely skilled individuals such as Kazuya Taki and Tobei Tachibana are still shown capable of defeating them in battle, with Gel Shocker's Combatmen also far outclassing them in overall capabilities.

Shocker Combatmen also appear in the Kamen Rider Decade series and movies, along with with the Let's Go Kamen Riders movie.

Overview

The male Shocker Combatmen

The female Shocker Combatmen

The first brand of Shocker Shocker Combatmen were people dressed in black clothing and berets with red scarves and a belt with Shocker's insignia. As the series moved on new types were introduced. When the Shocker commander Sabotegron arrived the iconic image of Shocker Combatmen still seen today, people dressed in black clothes and wearing gray makeup, wearing masks similar to Lucha libre fighters, that have an insignia on the forehead, while the more elite Combatmen had red designs to their normal black clothes. The most recognizable costumes are the Combatmen in black clothes with white spine and ribcage designs on the shirt and a mask with the Shocker emblem.

All Shocker Combatmen give out a "Yee!" cry, which is usually the most they say. They also occasionally use this cry with the "Sieg Heil" salute used by WWII Nazis. Dai-Shocker and Super Shocker's Combatmen have the special ability to transform into missiles to attack enemies.

When Shocker merged with Geldam to become Gel Shocker, the Shocker Combatmen were replaced by the Gel Shocker Combatman (ゲルショッカー戦闘員, Geru Shokkā Sentōin). They wore bright purple and yellow costumes, covering their entire bodies from head to toe. Aside from the Shocker Combatmen' standard disguise abilities, they were also capable of traveling from one place to another by transforming into sheets that would drop down onto unsuspecting victims and turning themselves invisible. This version of Combatmen also was physically superior to their predecessors, able to take more blunt violent abuse without lowering combat performance.

Later history

Kamen Rider OOO

In episodes 27 and 28 of Kamen Rider OOO (which were incidentally the 999th and 1000th Kamen Rider episodes), a Shocker Combatman named In Sendo appeared who had a long grudge against the Kamen Riders for always defeating his comrades. But he was not entirely evil as he saved Eiji Hino from falling crates and later realized he was only being used as a pawn by Kazari to create the Ikajaguar Yummy. The soldier's desire for strength in numbers allowed the Yummy to duplicate itself into a small army of various Combatmen, but he became disillusioned upon discovering that these were merely made of medals.
