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

In the Soccer World, Takatora Kureshima (呉島 貴虎 Kureshima Takatora) is the leader of Team Genesis who transforms into Kamen Rider Zangetsu Shin (仮面ライダー斬月 真 Kamen Raidā Zangetsu Shin, lit. "True Slaying Moon").

History

The Golden Fruit Cup Event

HDAllGaimRiders

All Armored Riders (Alive in AU, except Sigurd and Duke) against Armored Rider Mars.

In this world, the Inves Invasion is no longer present. This Takatora is married with a sick wife, paralleling him with Rosyuo and his queen. Takatora becomes influenced to destroy the other Riders and after learning of Sid's betrayal, slashes him off an elevator pit. He later fights Armored Rider Bravo and Baron with Takatora and Oren both dying in the fight. He is brought back to life by Kouta who shoots down Mars' horse and joins the other Riders to defeat Armored Rider Mars.

Arms

Zangetsu-Shin Pre-Arms

Genetic Ride Wear

The Genetic Ride Wear (ゲネティックライドウェア Genetikku Raido Uēa) is Zangetsu Shin's undersuit, which is briefly seen during Zangetsu Shin's transformation sequence before the Armor Part attaches. However, this form is completely vulnerable to any incoming attacks when shot at directly in the suit rather than at the Arms that is descending down on the Rider.

Rider Statistics:[1]

  • Rider Height: 206 cm
  • Rider Weight: 109 kg

Ability Parameters:[1]

  • Punching Power: 14.3 t
  • Kicking Power: 18.2 t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 24 m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100 m per 6.1 seconds

Melon Energy Arms (メロンエナジーアームズ Meron Enajī Āmuzu) is Zangetsu Shin's Yubari King cantaloupe-based default form. Accessed through the Melon Energy Lockseed, this form bears the Barilon Kabuto (バリロンカブト Bariron Kabuto, lit. "Barilon Helmet") helmet with the Steering Eye (ステアリングアイ Sutearingu Ai) visor.

While assuming Melon Energy Arms, Zangetsu Shin dons the Melon Energy Armor Part (メロンエナジーアーマーパート Meron Enajī Āmā Pāto) and his Arms Weapon is the Sonic Arrow.

As expected, the evolution from Melon Arms to Melon Energy Arms has boosted Zangetsu Shin's power, with his punching and kicking power increased exponentially. The only thing that hasn't changed, however, is the jumping height and the maximum running speed. Compared to his fellow New Generation Riders, Zangetsu Shin can throw the 2nd hardest punch and his kicks are the third strongest. His agility stats, however, are about average.

This Arms has three finishing attacks.

  • Genesis Driver finisher:
    • Mujin Kick (無刃キック Mujin Kikku, lit. "No-blade Kick"): Zangetsu Shin activates the Squash function on his Genesis Driver and fuels all the energy from the Melon Energy Lockseed to its maximum potential before he jumps up and hits the target with his kick.
    • Unnamed Rider Slash: Zangetsu Shin activates the Squash function on his Genesis Driver and fuels all the energy from the Melon Energy Lockseed into his body, which is then converted into his Sonic Arrow before he slashes the target.
  • Sonic Arrow finishers:
    • Sonic Volley (ソニックボレー Sonikku Borē): Zangetsu Shin locks the Melon Energy Lockseed into the Sonic Arrow and fires a powerful arrow shot that when it hits a target can pierce through their body and slice it into multiple pieces before exploding.
