Character History

Global Freeze

Medic restores 007 and 030

007 is restored by Medic alongside Roidmude 030.

007 was among the nine Roidmudes that gathered at Heart's base prior to the Global Freeze operation. During the Global Freeze, 007 and other Roidmudes marched their way through inner Tokyo and attacked the citizens. Type ZERO Episode 0: Countdown to Global Freeze 007 was among many Roidmudes who were destroyed by Kamen Rider Protodrive and the Shift Cars during the Global Freeze, foiling the Roidmudes' invasion. However, due to the resistance not yet having the power to destroy the Roidmude's Cores, he survived and was restored by Medic, with his negative emotions diluting her newly-found unconditional love. Where is the Truth About the Goddess?

Fusion Evolution and Death

Later, with the power of a Neo Viral Core, he fused with the criminal Hajime Taga to become the Sword Roidmude. He quickly engaged in a battle against Drive and Mach before fleeing away. He later targeted Hayase in his hospital as an act of revenge until Shinnosuke and Mach arrived to stop him. In the end, Shinnosuke was forced to reveal his identity as Kamen Rider Drive to the public and separated Hajime from 007. 007 tried to escape until Drive boarding the ejected cabin portion of Tridoron and destroyed 007's body on air. However, his Core was quickly saved by Roidmude 001 with Hajime was arrested again and brought into custody. Why Has a New Battle Started?

With his body restored, 007 goes back to hunting to find Taga, and succeeds, fusing with Taga within an abandoned warehouse again to form the Sword Roidmude. Once done, he began assaulting the officers that tried to hide him from 007, with Shinnosuke arriving to save Nira from being vivisected by Sword. However, since his left arm was broken by Mashin Chaser, Shinnosuke was unable to even insert the Shift Speed Car into the Shift Brace, making Deadheat Mach appear to save him. After a brief fight, Sword knocked Mach out of transformation, making Kiriko be the one to face against Sword, but her kicks didn't manage to hurt Sword, and in response, Sword sliced off Kiriko's Shift Car Holder and pushed her off the bridge. Now caught in Sword's Heavy Acceleration field, Shinnosuke and Go were helpless to see Kiriko fall to her doom as Sword walked right below her with an arm blade raised.

However, Chase arrived at the nick of time, beating Sword out of his spot by slamming the Ride Chaser into him and grabbed Kiriko before she could complete her fall after Sword's Heavy Acceleration field was involuntarily turned off. Chase soon suited up as Kamen Rider Chaser and began delivering Sword a royal beatdown, taking their fight outside. When Chase summoned the Shingou-Ax, he damaged Sword to the point where Chaser yanked Taga out of the Roidmude, forcibly devolving Sword back into 007. When he activated the Full Throttle on the weapon, Chaser was stopped by the weapon's peculiar charging method, though made due with shooting a recovering 007 back into place, allowing Chaser to destroy 007, giving Chaser his first Roidmude kill. Where is Chaser Going?

However, Shinnosuke was saved by Kamen Rider Ghost, who fought the three Roidmude spirits, quickly destroying them again through a series of slashes from his Gan Gun Saber.

Notes

KRDr-Judge Roidmude

The Judge Roidmude

  • Sword Roidmude's costume is a modified version of the Judge Roidmude's costume.
    • Similarly, both Advanced Roidmudes are themed after swordsmen, with Judge being a kendo practitioner.
  • He is the only one of the original nine Roidmudes who are known to have evolved to not be a commander of the other Roidmudes.
  • With the Roidmudes being similar to their monster group predecessors, the Inves, 007 is similar to the Byakko Inves as both were the first of their kind to become a version of their kind with a human in control of their powers (the first Fusion Evolution, the first Category H Inves).
  • 007 is the only golden collar Roidmude not to have a human form.
  • 007 is also used as a codename of Ian Fleming's titular character James Bond. Coincidentally, 007 was the first Roidmude to "bond" with a human.
    • His "numbering" as 007 and becoming the Sword Roidmude may also associate with Akira Kurosawa's film Seven Samurai, about seven rogue swordsmen who join together to protect a village.
    • He may also may be another reference to Ishinomori's manga Cyborg 009 due to the cyborg Great Britain/Cyborg 007, who was known as the team shape-shifter (in a similar manner as this Roidmude transforms a human into a Roidmude)
