Sougo Tokiwa (常磐ソウゴ Tokiwa Sōgo)[2], alternatively spelt Sogo Tokiwa[3], is an 18-year-old high school student who dreams of becoming a king one day. When Tsukuyomi and Woz travel to his time from 50 years in the future, he learns that he is destined to become the tyrannical ruler of their time, Oma Zi-O. With this knowledge, he makes it his goal to be a great king through kindness by becoming Kamen Rider Zi-O (仮面ライダージオウ Kamen Raidā Jiō). However, he faces Geiz Myoukouin, a Kamen Rider from the future who is bent on killing him to change the course of history.

History

Sougo Tokiwa was born on April 28, 2000. Living with his grand-uncle Junichiro in a clock shop, he attended high school at Hikarigamori High School, excelling in history but poor in physics. From an early age, Sougo believed that he would become a king, much to the consternation of his uncle and his friends’ chagrin.

The Birth of Zi-O

One day, Sougo found a mysterious watch-like item that was on the seat of his bicycle, and after examining the blank item, Sougo laid down the blank item, then went on home while minding his own. Later while bicycling down a small street up towards a stairway, a man in hood, holding a grimoire appeared out of nowhere, who told him that it would be a momentous day for him and to avoid the "red robot" before mysteriously disappearing.

He does indeed encounter the robot shortly after, run by a man in red and black attire and attacks Sougo. He is saved by a woman claiming to be from the future named Tsukuyomi in her Time Mazine. They seemingly travel back in time to 1671 Japan where she proves her legitimacy to him. Tsukuyomi warns Sougo that the watch he currently had possessed a tremendous amount of power and using it will make Sougo turn into the worst and lowest overlord, Oma Zi-O. Just before Sougo could reply, a fight occurs and Tsukuyomi decide to test whether Sougo is really Oma Zi-O or not by forcefully putting Sougo in the middle of the fight. The citizens proceed to throw Sougo to a river and doing so makes peace for themselves. Instead of lamenting his misfortune, Sougo is relieved to see that the group had reconciled, much to the citizens’ amusement. However, a red Kamen Rider, Geiz manages to tail them and the two retreat back into the Time Mazine.

When Tsukuyomi was being attacked by Geiz, Sougo gets kicked out of the mech and wakes up in a strange world with a huge wall in the horizon. As he ponders over this, a Smash attacked him but luckily Kamen Riders Build and Cross-Z appears to help. After revealing their names, Sento and Ryuga bring Sougo to the cafe Nascita.

As Ryuga drinks from a carton of milk, Sougo sees the expiration date and realized that he's indeed in the year 2017. Sento affirms that Sougo is indeed from the future since, after some analysis, Sougo's Ridewatch is different from any current technology. Before Sento can ask about the future, Tsukuyomi appeared and shot the three of them into unconsciousness using Faizphone X, in order to prevent Sougo from interfering with the past any more than necessary. He wakes up in his old home, believing it to be all a dream. Later, he encounters a monster with the similar look of Kamen Rider Build attacking civilians. He tries to stop him but is quickly subdued twice.

Sougo was approached by the prophet, Woz once again, who then tells him that he'll become an overlord who will reign over the future. Tsukuyomi desperately tries to warns Sougo to not use the Ridewatch. However, after some quick thought, Sougo decided to not become a tyrant, but to become a beloved overlord of the future, much to both Tsukuyomi and Woz’s surprise. After that, the blank Ridewatch revealed itself to becoming the Zi-O Ridewatch, then Sougo is given the Ziku-Driver by Woz to transform and battle the elusive Kaijin Rider. As it is his new beginning of becoming a Kamen Rider, Woz announced the introduction of Sougo as he was now Kamen Rider Zi-O, the King of Time, much to Tsukuyomi’s disappointment.

He is able to go on par with Another Build and is quick to defeat him using the Zikan GiLade finisher. Geiz enters the fray, seemingly frustrated with Sougo on his decision and Tsukuyomi as she failed in convincing him. Geiz proceeds to ask why Sougo became Zi-O, which the latter replied that it was probably decided from the moment he was born. Reminiscing Oma Zi-O’s declaration, Geiz deems Sougo as irredeemable and transforms using both Geiz and Ghost Ridewatchs to become Kamen Rider Geiz GhostArmor and advances towards Zi-O. Kingdom 2068

Geiz proceeds to attack Zi-O relentlessly until Tsukiyomi piloting the Time Mazine and tells Zi-O to run. After a lenghty bike chase, he manages to do so. Sougo then encounters Woz once more, who formally introduces himself. He states that the two that hail from the future are trying to change the future. Woz then warns him a group named the Time Jackers who have the same goal but to have another king of their choosing in the future. He claims to be the one keeping the timeline the same and that he's on Sougo’s side, remarking that his conquest has only just begun. He later finds Another Build fighting Geiz and rescues the two. With his Time Break, Zi-O seemingly defeats the monster once more, only to find it again within seconds. Believing the real Build could defeat him, he rushes off to find him.

Later, Sougo went to the same cafe to meet Sento and Ryuga again. However, due to Another Build's appearances, Nascita's scenery had changed, the fridge that was the passway to the Build laboratory is gone and both

Sento tells his successor, Sougo, to take care of his past.

Sento and Ryuga become Lynks Band fanboys instead, seemingly forgetting their memories of being Kamen Riders and their encounter with Sougo the previous year. After Geiz destroys Another Build once again, Sento and Ryuga memories returned, and two blank-ridewatches that they somehow possessed turns into the Build and Cross-Z Ridewatches. Sento then said to Sougo to take care of his past self and gives him the Build and Cross-Z Ridewatches. Although he doesn't understand at first, he quickly realizes that Another Build showed up and attacked Sento and Ryuga in 2017 and Sougo went back in time to help defeat it. He meets up again with Geiz and Tsukuyomi informing them and the two Riders head to their Time Mazines and head back to the past. 

Sougo and Geiz manage to arrive at the very scene, only to be interrupted by Uhr of the Time Jackers. He tells Sougo that the host of Another Build's fate was to have his athletic career abruptly ended in an accident and that he helped him move forward. The latter argues that despite his ability to time travel and intervene with other's lives, it's that individual that can determine his or her future. Impressed with his statement, Uhr wonders what his future will look like and walks away. The two Riders transform and join up with Build and Cross-Z to take down Another Build. However, the change of events in the timeline has caused Build's and Cross-Z's powers to disappear, seemingly to have transferred into the Cross-Z and Build Ridewatches. Zi-O uses the Build Ridewatch to become Zi-O BuildArmor, with Woz appearing and remarking this moment. Zi-O Build Armor now able to damage the monster, with Geiz subduing him with his Zikan Zax in Yumi Mode. Zi-O uses Vortex Time Break to finish the monster with Geiz utilizing the Zax's finisher equipped with the Cross-Z ridewatch. Remembering that Sento and Ryuga gave Sougo the Ridewatches, he asks the two to hold on to two blank Ridewatches for safe keeping. Sento corrects him by saying that his real name is Takumi Katsuragi, and he seems to forget about Sougo. Geiz demands to know what's with sudden anomalies in the timeline, but Sougo himself is confused about it as well, only exclaiming that Sento and Ryuga will choose to become Kamen Rider Build and Cross-Z in the future.

Sougo wakes up the next morning to find out that Tsukuyomi and Geiz have rented out that his uncle's spare rooms. Tsukuyomi explains that him saving the two has questioned whether or not he will grow to become a vile dictator and have decided to keep an eye on him, with Geiz later saying his vendetta towards him hasn't ceased. Despite all this, Sougo seems to be fine with the two living under the same roof as him. Best Match 2017

Genius Gamer M & Obtaining Ex-Aid's Power

The first day that Geiz and Tsukuyomi took a class with Sougo, Sougo didn't feel relax a bit because whatever he did, they would follow and sneak on him, especially Geiz took a look at him closely when he was about to use the toilet. During the lunchtime, he hid inside the sport warehouse and met a student playing a game from GENM Corp, similar to Mighty Action X game. However, when Sougo tricked the gym teacher for covering the student to play the game in quiet, Another Ex-Aid appeared and attacked the player. Sougo transformed and fought it, but after he got thrown, Another Ex-Aid disappeared. Geiz and Tsukuyomi came to Sougo and explained that it wasn't his fault and Another Rider had appeared.

At home, Sougo thought to play the game to lure Another Ex-Aid, but his skill was beyond help as he couldn't reach the level where the student would be attacked. Tsukuyomi said about if only there was a gamer which could help as even she and Geiz couldn't play any old video game, Sougo rushly caught an idea to search a gamer and went to search for Genius Gamer M after Tsukuyomi took a look on her history tablet. Sougo late to realize if doing things like running around to search for him was 100% a difficult task but as he got tired after he had done that. But he found another victim and Another Ex-Aid escaped in a blink, with Sougo couldn't even reaching for it. Woz came and told Sougo to take the victim to the doctor.

Sougo, Geiz, and Tsukuyomi took the victim to Seito hospital. There, Sougo heard of a doctor who played game with the name Emu and asked where he was. Hiiro met them and asked about the ruckus and Sougo told him of what he wanted. Hiiro recalled about Emu was missing after he played the mentioned game after Sougo revealed that the incident of the disease was related to the game. There was a note and Hiiro as he claimed that he somehow could trust them, on playing the game. The note was written in the German language and Geiz able to read it, revealing that it was a code for the player when they played the game. Sougo realized the meaning of the code after Geiz translated it and played the game, making them to be dragged to the game world itself and encountered Another Ex-Aid.

Sougo and Geiz transformed and fought Another Ex-Aid, who proved formidable until they transformed into Zi-O Build Armor and Geiz Drive Armor respectively to defeat it. Emu appeared and congratulated them on cracking his code in a cold tone, before transforming into Ex-Aid and attacking them. Doctor Gamer 2018

Personality

Sougo is described as an ambitious young man who desires to be a king. He had a hobby of learning the history of existing kings, even the Kings that are classified as Tyrants (i.e. Nobunaga Oda). However, upon learning of his alternate future self-being a tyrant, he decides to change his fate. The current reason is yet to be known of why he is like that except the fact that Sougo somehow felt that it is his fate.

Despite his grand ambitions, Sougo is a peaceful and genuinely kind man at heart, and will gladly take physical harm if it means stopping a conflict, much to Tsukuyomi’s confusion. He also took his duty as Kamen Rider seriously, as he fully understands the responsibility of his power to protect people, something he believes what a benevolent King would do. 

Sougo seems to have a verbal tic by adding "Feels like it" (気がする Kigasuru) at the end of most of his sentences, mostly due to his optimistic approaches. Sougo also generally friendly and remain trustful to everyone, to the point that Sougo gives Geiz permission to use the Wizard Ridewatch to defeat Another Wizard in 2012.

Sougo exhibits fanatical admiration when in the presence of a regal figure (i.e.: Kuroto Dan). However, he also exhibits respect for ordinary people that have benevolent king-like quality (i.e.: Eiji Hino). This stems from the belief that he could learn from those individuals who have succeeded in their ascension and also understand what is needed for one to be a Benevolent Ruler. Resulting in him become one step closer to accomplish his own ambition. This character trait gives him intense focus, which extends to his combat prowess. In the ensuing confrontation with Geiz, Sougo displayed formidable combat skill and effortlessly defeated him.

Skills

  • Vast Historical Knowledge: According to Tsukuyomi, Sougo excels in history.
  • Keen Manipulator: Sougo has a talent for understanding how people would behave and subsequently exploiting people around him to do his bidding like how he tricked both Geiz and Tsukuyomi into watching Another Wizard's magic show with him and how he took advantage of Woz to make him cooperate with him and Geiz. Geiz considered his manipulative capabilities to be a serious threat and an indicator of his potential to become an overlord.    

 Weaknesses

  • Poor Academic Performance: According to Tsukuyomi, Sougo is helpless in science and curricular subjects in school. This indicated when he first used the BuildArmor, and instead of proper equations, it simply listed sentences stating that he 'didn't know' or 'something I learned in grade school'.

In rocket mode, it becomes a fairing, and by generating a resistance damping field, it drastically improves flight speed in the atmosphere and protects the wearer from the impact such as acoustics, frictional heat during gravity and gravitational acceleration.
  • Booster Module (ブースターモジュール Būsutā Mojūru) - Sub propeller and attitude control device mounted on both forearms of the Kamen Rider Zi-O's FourzeArmor. In addition to enabling vertical takeoff and landing by explosive thrust force and flexible thrust deflection through the arm, it gives the kick a destructive power like a drill by producing high speed rotation. Also, it is possible to remote control by itself in a short time.
    • Spear Head Bite (スピアヘッドバイト Supia Heddo Baito) - The tips of FourzeArmor's Booster Modules. Because it is composed of super durable Graphenium Bite units, it can be used as striking units.
  • Basement Plate (ベースメントプレート Bēsumento Purēto) - The thigh armor of the FourzeArmor. During rocket mode attacks, an arm that attaches the Basement Plate to the Mobilito Engines on the legs lift up the engines, allowing transformation to rocket mode.
  • Mobilito Engine (モビリットエンジン Mobiritto Enjin) - The main engines of FourzeArmor. The orbital titanium cylinder frame has a built-in cosmic engine unit that is small but exhibits high thrust, and it is operated with a pair of 4 units on the back and 2 on the back.

Compared to his previous Rider Armors, FourzeArmor endows Zi-O with increased punching power at the cost of his agility and kicking power, but this is made up by his ability to utilize his rocket mode allowing him to fly.

This form has two finishers:

  • Ziku-Driver finishers:
    • Limit Time Break (リミットタイムブレイク Rimitto Taimu Bureiku). This finisher has two variations[9]:
      • Zi-O transforms into a rocket-like state to fly himself and the enemy into the Earth's upper atmosphere before delivering a corkscrew kick with his lower half covered in magenta energy. This variation is dubbed by Zi-O as the Space Rocket Tailspin Kick (宇宙ロケットきりもみキック Uchū Roketto Kirimomi Kikku).
      • Zi-O transforms into a rocket-like state to fly slightly above the enemy before delivering a corkscrew kick. This variation is dubbed by Zi-O as the Rocket Tailspin Kick (ロケットきりもみキック Roketto Kirimomi Kikku).
  • Zikan Girade finishers:
    • Zure Zure Shooting: Zi-O uses the power of a Ridewatch in the Zikan Girade in Juu Mode and performs a powerful blast.
      • Fourze: Zi-O shoots a projection of the Rocket Module at the enemy.

OOOArmor (オーズアーマー ŌzuĀmā) is Zi-O's Kamen Rider OOO-based form accessed by using the OOO Ridewatch in the left-hand side of the Ziku-Driver, invoking Kamen Rider OOO's Tatoba Combo. Its visor spells out "OOO" (オーズ Ōzu), its chest reads "Taka" (タカ), "Tora" (トラ), and "Batta" (バッタ), while its shoulder pads are modeled after the Tora arms.

In this form, Zi-O gains the powers of Kamen Rider OOO, those being an enhanced sense of direction. thanks to the Taka Indication Eye (タカインジケーションアイ Taka Injikēshon Ai, lit. 'Hawk Indication Eye'), a Tora Claw Z (トラクローZ Tora Kurō Z, lit. 'Tiger Claw Z') claw-like gauntlet, and enhanced jumping thanks to the Batta Springers (バッタスプリンガー Batta Supuringā, lit. 'Grashopper Springers'). As a side-effect of using this form, he will announce "Seiya!" when performing a finishing attack, much like OOO does.

The OOOArmor bears the following parts:

  • OOO Head Gear M (オーズヘッドギアM Ōzu Heddo Gia M) - OOOArmor's helmet.
    • Taka Indication Eye (タカインジケーションアイ Taka Injikēshon Ai, lit. 'Hawk Indication Eye') - The visor of the OOOArmor, sensors with a viewing angle of 270° have been installed within the compound eye. It utilizes a highly sensitive visual sensor, allowing Zi-O to see up to 8km ahead, as well as see objects as small as 0.02mm clearly in high definition. The Taka Indication Eye is so powerful that even in the dark Zi-O can see enemies 3km away.
    • Sailing Taka Shield (セーリングタカシールド Sēringu Taka Shīrudo, lit. 'Sailing Hawk Shield') - The red hawk wing-like side crests decorating OOOArmor's head. It incorporates an anti-gravity UG Plate (UGプレート UG Purēto), allowing the Sailing Hawk Shield to fly during Armor Time transformation. Because it does not need lift under its wings to fly, the wings are mainly used as sharp cutting tools and defensive armor.
    • Tail Blocker (テイルブロッカー Teiru Burokkā) - OOO Head Gear's breathing apparatus located on the Sailing Taka Shield's 'tail'/mouthplate. An air filtration function is installed, blocking toxins and all types of poisonous gasses, allowing Zi-O to breath normally during battle.
  • Tora Top Shoulder (トラトップショルダー Tora Toppu Shorudā, lit. 'Tiger Top Shoulder') - OOOArmor's right side shoulder. Due to the Supple Stranger (サプルストレンジャー Sapuru Sutorenjā) units installed inside, muscular strength, reaction speed and flexibility is enhanced, allowing for more aggressive attacks. Additionally, the Tora Head (トラヘッド Tora Heddo, lit. 'Tiger Head') search unit is equipped with various sensors that scan the battlefield for any useful information, which it then converts into electrical signals and acts upon said signals.
  • Tora Bottom Shoulder (トラボトムショルダー Tora Botomu Shorudā, lit. 'Tiger Bottom Shoulder') - OOOArmor's left side shoulder. Due to the Supple Stranger units installed inside, muscular strength, reaction speed and flexibility is enhanced, allowing for more aggressive attacks. Additionally, it contains a posture controlling device in the Tread Tail (トレッドテイル Toreddo Teiru), which automatically corrects body posture in battle to prevent stumbling.
  • Scanning Breaster (スキャニングブレスター Sukyaningu Buresutā) - OOO Armor's chestplate. It contains a central circuit unit that replicates Kamen Rider OOO's powers. With it, OOOArmor can combine three different powers together to maximise synergy (シナジー Shinajī) during battle.
  • Tora Arm Plate (トラアームプレート Tora Āmu Purēto, lit. 'Tiger Arm Plate') - OOOArmor's gauntlets. By utilizing a monocoque outer shell plate on top of a gyro axis mechanism, impacts can be taken without much damage to the user's forearm. Furthermore, the installed Tora Claw Z (トラクローZ Tora Kurō Z, lit. 'Tiger Claw Z') unit on the right Tora Arm Plate can easily cut through building walls made of reinforced concrete.
  • Batta Springers (バッタスプリンガー Batta Supuringā, lit. 'Grashopper Springers') - Grey sections resembling grasshopper legs attatched onto Zi-O OOOArmor's waist, upper and lower legs. It is a set of devices that vastly increase jumping power, and is able to achieve this by utilising highly elastic Resilin Rubber (レジリンラバー Rejirin Rabā) in its construction. It absorbs and divert impact shocks when jumping, allowing the user to continually jump without discomfort.
  • Batta Leg Plates (バッタレッグプレート Batta Reggu Purēto, lit. 'Grasshopper Leg Plates') - OOOArmor's leg plates. It improves leaping capabilities by utilizing servomechanisms to enhance jumping force.

This form's finisher is the Scanning Time Break (スキャニングタイムブレイク Sukyaningu Taimu Bureiku)[10].[11]: Zi-O leaps to the air as three giant medal-like projections (In which the medals has "Taka" (タカ), "Tora" (トラ), and "Batta" (バッタ) written on each medal) appear in front of him. Zi-O then drops down for a kicking attack with the three medals converging into one (which form is similar to OOOArmor's chest-plate).

  • Lockseed Shoulders (ロックシードショルダー Rokkushīdo Shorudā) - The shoulder armor which takes the form of Lockseeds. It contains a beacon that recieves a signal from the Gaim Ridewatch when it actvates. The inbuilt Seed Core (シードコア Shīdo Koa) energy source then creates a space-time interference in order for the GaimArmor to appear above Zi-O before lowering down, allowing transformation into GaimArmor.
    • Dai Dai Gouraiwan (ダイダイゴウライワン Dai Dai Gouraiwan) - The upper-back sections attached to the GaimArmor, it resembles Gaim Orange Arm's shoulder armor with Daidaimarus attached. Supportive AI is installed on this section, predicting wearer's movements and acting in conjunction, acting as extra arms that can slash enemies.

By using electromagnetic force, the sheets of metal can escape pressure akin to a cushion, greatly increasing durability. Additionally, they act as holsters that can store two Daidaimaru Z (大橙丸Z lit. 'Great Orange Circle Z') swords, Daidaimaru replicas, in them.
  • Glass Slide (グラススライド Gurasu Suraido) - The upper leg armor. It is composed and acts the same way as the Dai Dai Sleeve. The 'Reversal Arms' on it absorbs and reduces side damage.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Sougo Tokiwa is portrayed by So Okuno (奥野 壮 Okuno Sō). As Kamen Rider Zi-O, his suit actor is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji).

Rider No.

As the leading rider protagonist of Kamen Rider Zi-O, Zi-O is labelled Kamen Rider #35 (仮面ライダー35号 Kamen Raidā Sanjūgogō) and Heisei Rider #20 (平成ライダー20号 Heisei Raidā Nijūgō).

Etymology

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".

"Zi" in Zi-O's name could mean either time ( Ji) or character ( Ji), representing his "watch" and "Katakana" motifs while the "O" means king ( Ō). It may also be Goroawase for the number 20 (2 - Ji, 0 - Ō), referencing that Zi-O is the 20th Heisei Rider.

  • Kamen Rider Zi-O's official design was first revealed in Kamen Rider Buttobasoul accidentally and resulted in the machines needing to undergo matienance after the reveal.[30] His legend forms were soon after revealed by a Chinese printing industry staff unintentionally during Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing posters making.[31]
  • Zi-O is the second Rider with a magenta & black color scheme, after Decade.
  • Zi-O's suit design is based on Rolex watches.
  • Zi-O's boots have the katakana for "kick" (キック) on the soles.
  • The hands on Zi-O's face point to 10:10, which is a rough common setting of watches and a reference to his status as the 20th Heisei Kamen Rider.
    • This makes Zi-O the first Heisei Rider since Kamen Rider Decade to incorporate his number into his design (the "X" on Decade's chest refers to 10).
  • Uniquely, Zi-O's forms appear as an inversion of Decade's, where the forms conform to the core design and the summoned weapons are modified to either fit the design of the trinkets or the aesthetics of the rider's form, instead of both forms and weapons being their normal designs.
  • Zi-O is the first Rider since Decade not to have a unique name for his default form.
  • The prefixes added to Zi-O's Time Break for Rider Armor finishers are all taken from the original Riders' finishers:
    • BuildArmor's Vortex Time Break is taken from the Vortex Finish.
    • Ex-AidArmor's Critical Time Break is taken from the Critical Strike and Critical Finish.
    • GaimArmor's Squash Time Break is taken from the Squash finishers.
    • FourzeArmor's Limit Time Break is taken from the Limit Break.
    • OOOArmor's Scanning Time Break is taken from the Scanning Charge
    • KivaArmor's Wake Up Time Break is taken from the Wake Up Fuestle, which is required for Kiva's finishing attacks.
    • Den-OArmor's Ore no Time Break is taken from Momotaros' various nicknames for his Full Charge, usually "Ore no hissatsu waza part 2!" (俺の必殺技パート2 lit. "My finishing attack, part 2!")
    • KabutoArmor's Clock Time Break is taken from the Clock Up maneuver that all the Riders of Kamen Rider Kabuto have, even though it's not a finishing attack.
    • HibikiArmor's Ongeki Time Break is taken from Hibiki's own Ongeki Finishers.
    • BladeArmor's Lightning Time Break is taken from either the Lightning Slash, the Lightning Blast, or the Lightning Sonic.
    • RyukiArmor's Final Time Break is taken from Final Vent.
    • AgitoArmor's Ground Time Break is taken from Agito's Ground Form.
  • Zi-O's DecadeArmor form has similarities to Kamen Rider Ghost's Toucon Boost Damashii as both are upgrade forms that can change between different upgraded form changes.
    • The way the visor acts like a monitor whenever an upgrade form is used via the Decade Ridewatch is reminiscent of the helmet design of Ganbarider.
  • Zi-O's DecadeArmor use Ghost's super form instead of upgrade form like Build and Ex-Aid.
