Behind the Scenes
Sougo Tokiwa is portrayed by So Okuno (奥野 壮 Okuno Sō) who portrays every version of him except his child one and Ohma Zi-O.
Sougo Tokiwa's name is play on Tokiwa-sō, the place where Shotaro Ishinomori lived and started his manga career during 1956 to 1961. "Tokiwa" also carries the word (とき Toki), which can be translated into time when it is written in kanji "時". If matching his kanji, it was named after (常盤桜 Tokiwazakura), which it means primrose.
"Zi" in Zi-O's name could mean either time (時 Ji) or character (字 Ji), representing his "watch" and "Katakana" motifs while the "O" means king (王 Ō). It may also be Goroawase for the number 20 (2 - Ji, 0 - Ō), referencing that Zi-O is the 20th Heisei Rider, the Heisei Era starting with the year 2000 for the Kamen Rider Series (the actual Heisei Era started in 1989).
