This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Kabuto.

In an alternate timeline, Souji Tendou (天道 総司 Tendō Sōji) is Kamen Rider Kabuto (仮面ライダーカブト Kamen Raidā Kabuto, Masked Rider Kabuto).

Character History

God Speed Love

During the Shibuya Meteor Strike, Tendou would briefly meet his sister, but the two would become buried under the rumble of a collapsing building, with Hiyori suffering severe injuries.

The two would survive and, years later, the landscape of the Earth had drastically changed. The meteor strike had evaporated a vast majority of the planet's surface water, creating areas of desolation around the globe. The meteor also carried other Worms which further threatened human life. With water becoming the most precious resource, organizations such as ZECT and its rival faction, Neo-ZECT, have used their influence to regulate what remains and to combat the Worm threat. Now an adult, Tendou has been working as the mercenary Kamen Rider Kabuto for some time; using his work to keep watch over an ailing Hiyori, who had become critically-ill from the injuries she suffered during the Shibuya Meteor Strike.

As the conflict between the three factions (ZECT, Neo-ZECT and the Worms) reached it climax, Tendou would be instrumental in the Jacob's Ladder incident, which attempted to replenish the Earth's water with an water-bearing asteroid using a space station powered by Clock Up technology. With the help of Kagami (Kamen Rider Gatack), Tendou uncovered a secret conspiracy between ZECT and the Worms: using the space station to bring more Worms to Earth from a second asteroid. The two would infiltrated the space station and defeat Issei Kurosaki, ZECT's Kamen Rider Caucasus; acquiring the Hyper Zecter which enabled Tendou to alter history by transporting the Worm-infected meteorite seven years into the past and colliding it with the original Shibuya meteor, preventing the catastrophe of his present timeline.

Hyper Kabuto In The Past

Before vanishing, Tendou visits his past, younger self and gives him his Zecter belt and encourages him to persevere and save his sister Hiyori to continue on in the main timeline.

Kamen Rider Kabuto

The Kabuto Zecter (カブトゼクター Kabuto Zekutā) allows Souji Tendou to transform into Kamen Rider Kabuto. As with all of the Zecters, Kabuto has two basic forms that he can transform into.

Kabuto's Masked Form (マスクドフォーム Masukudo Fōmu) is a heavily armored form resembling a pupa. Due to the heavy armor, Masked Form offers strong defensive but low offensive capabilities. This is Kabuto's default form, until he flips the "horn" on the Kabuto Zecter (カブトゼクター Kabuto Zekutā), like a switch, to initiate the Cast Off (キャストオフ Kyasuto Ofu) command. This primes the armor to "Cast Off," which when fully activated, sends the armor flying off his body, destroying all lower Worms that get hit with the ejected armor parts and revealing the sleeker Rider Form. It is shown to be possible for Masked Form to be bypassed altogether, as seen in the Hyper Battle Video and by the alternate version of Kamen Rider Dark Kabuto in Kamen Rider Decade, by flipping the horn immediately after placing the Kabuto Zecter on the belt before the armor materializes. When Kabuto switches the horn on the Kabuto Zecter back to its original position, it will initiate Put On (プットオン Putto On) sequence, where all of the extra armor reattaches to him, restoring Masked Form either partially or completely.

The Armor of Masked Form consists of the following parts:

  • Kabuto Receiver (カブトレシーバー Kabuto Reshībā) is the V-shaped horn on the forehead, usually has more than four times the hearing ability of a person, listens to sounds in the range of 16 Hz to 120 thousand Hz, and can even hear a needle falling 5 km ahead.
  • Manipulator Arm (マニピュレーターアーム Manipyurētā Āmu) is the silver armor supported and reinforced by HP Pod (HPポッド HP Poddo), it is possible to continue to lift with heavy load even with heavy objects of 25 tons for a long time.
  • Lung Slit (ラングスリット Rangu Suritto) is the black shoulder tip that take in air. Gas is separated, converted into high-compression oxygen, and the oxygen concentration in the body is made up, and make Oxygen Value (オキシジェンバルプ Okishijen Barubu) spreads throughout the body. Only activated by qualified person can make him to be able to use the Masked Rider System freely.
  • Kabuto Exclusive Zect Mark (カブト専用ゼクトマーク Kabuto Sen'yō Zekuto Māku)
  • Enhanced Chest (強化チェスト Kyōka Chesuto) hidden inside the Masked Armor, stores high compressed oxygen which can be operated freely for more than 10 hours even above 5000 m above sea level. In Masked Form, Kabuto Horn is stored and isolated in chest.
  • Masked Armor (マスクドアーマー Masukudo Āmā) is molecularly coupled by electric force called van der Waals force. Also, by Cast Off, Masked Armor can blow off at the initial speed of 2000 m/s and can give damage to enemies nearby.

Kabuto's Rider Form (ライダーフォーム Raidā Fōmu) is the sleeker and more offensive-based form. This form resembles more of a Japanese rhinoceros beetle, which Kabuto is named and themed after. In this form, Kabuto has access to the Clock Up (クロックアップ Kurokku Appu) command, enabling him to move freely through the flow of time to match the Worms. By pressing the three buttons on the belt in succession, Kabuto can perform his tachyon-powered Rider Kick (ライダーキック Raidā Kikku). Kabuto Rider Form has three known variations of Rider Kick: a normal 180 degree roundhouse kick, a counter kick (360 degree roundhouse kick, which is used to surprise opponents who attempt to attack him from behind), and a flying side kick.

Rider Form consists of the following parts:

  • Kabuto Horn (カブトホーン Kabuto Hōn) has the same capabilities with Masked Form's Kabuto Receiver. Also, when charged up with the Kabuto Zecter, it receives a wave and glows red.
  • O Signal (Oシグナル O Shigunaru) senses the disturbance of the space-time at the same time as a Worm doing Clock Up and informs it to Kabuto.
  • Bourne Shell Met (ボーンシェルメット Bōnsherumetto)
  • Compound Eye (コンパウンドアイ Konpaundo Ai) has a field of view to instantaneously identify targets 2 km away covering the wide angle of 130 degrees in all directions. Moreover, enemies can be identified by fluoroscopy with X-rays, neutron rays, and infrared rays even in hidden objects and darkness.
  • Kabuto Breast (カブトブレスト Kabuto Buresuto)
  • Sign Suit (サインスーツ Sain Sūtsu)
  • Rider Armor (ライダーアーマー Raidā Āmā)
  • Rider Balm (ライダーバーム Raidā Bāmu)
  • Full Throttle (フルスロットル Furu Surottoru)
  • Rider Stomper (ライダーストンパー Raidā Sutonpā)

  • Rider Weight: 102 kg.[2]

Rider Senses:

  • Hearing: 5 km.[2]

Ability Parameters:

  • Punching Power: 10 t.[2]

Kabuto is able to access Hyper Form (ハイパーフォーム Haipā Fōmu), a stronger version of Rider Form. Accessed through the Hyper Zecter (ハイパーゼクター Haipā Zekutā), Tendou transforms into this form via Hyper Cast Off (ハイパーキャストオフ Haipā Kyasuto Ofu).

In Hyper Form, Kabuto also has access to Hyper Clock Up (ハイパークロックアップ Haipā Kurokku Appu), an even faster version of Clock Up able to time travel due to its faster-than-light speed properties. The extent of Kabuto's time travel is currently unknown, but he has been shown travelling up to seven years in the past. Kabuto is also able to take objects back in time along with him. He is also equipped with jets on his back, the flames of which resemble insect wings, which he can use to fly. In God Speed Love, Kabuto was shown to be able to fly through space, and the jets had enough power to move a meteor far larger than him.

This form's finisher is the Hyper Kick (ハイパーキック Haipā Kikku), which is activated by first pulling the Hyper Zecter's horn before performing the usual process for the Rider Kick.
