Character History

"Takeshi Hongo, you traitor! I'll stop your breath this time!"
―Spider Man, disgusted of Hongo's Shocker betrayal[src]

Spider Man abducted Hongo and brought him to Shocker where he went through the process and became the very first Kamen Rider. Chasing after Hongo and Professor Midorikawa after they escaped Shocker's lab, Spider Man bugged Ruriko Midorikawa in hopes she would lead him to her father, killing the man with Hongo taking the blame. After abducting Ruriko, Spider Man would be killed by Kamen Rider 1 with his "Rider Kick".

Revived Monster Armies

A revived Spider Man confronts Ken Nomoto, who would become Shocker commander Lizardlon.

He was later resurrected by Shocker as part of the Revived Monster Army before being destroyed by Lizardlon's special bomb. Spider Man also made a brief return appearance in the monster army of the Kamen Rider vs. Shocker movie but did not actually have an active participation there.

Spider Man appeared in Shotaro Ishinomori's original Kamen Rider manga, like the TV series he is the first monster to be introduced and face Hongo. His appearance is almost similar to his live-action counterpart, with the exception of his four arms.

Unlike his live-action counterpart, Spider Man actually survived his first battle with Hongo. He was rescued by fellow Shocker monster, Moray Man, who brought him back to Shocker's base where he begged the Great Leader for a second chance to defeat Hongo. After being repaired, Spider Man once again set out to hunt Hongo while being watched by Bat Man, who was under orders to execute him should he fail. Unable to defeat Hongo, Spider Man chose to end his own life out of fear.

Behind the scenes


Spider Man was voiced by Ryūji Saikachi (槐 柳二 Saikachi Ryūji) and portrayed by an unidentified suit actor. In Super Hero Taisen Z, Space Spider Man was voiced by Keikō Sakai (酒井 敬幸 Sakai Keikō), who previously voiced Doras in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010. His suit actor was Hiroyuki Tanaka (田中 宏幸 Tanaka Hiroyuki).

In Kamen Rider The First, the Spider was portrayed by Itsuji Itao (板尾 創路 Itao Itsuji). His suit actor was Akira Ohashi (大橋 明 Ōhashi Akira).


Spider-Man has the honor of being the first monster in the entire Kamen Rider series. He and his fellow Shocker Inhumanoid, Bat Man have become "icons", and their respective animal basis have been used for the first monsters created or encountered as most of them are either bat or spider-based in most Kamen Rider Series.

Many of these first/early spider-motif monsters that appeared about the same position as Spider Man include:
