|This article is about an ally/weapon/partner in Kamen Rider Den-O.|
"Neotaros" (ネオタロス, Neotarosu) is Kotaro Nogami's Imagin partner from the future, whom he has affectionally nicknamed Teddy (テディ, Tedi). Teddy is able to assume the form of the Macheteddy (マチェーテディ, Machētedi, from "machete") sword NEW Den-O uses in battle. Unlike other Imagin that are given form from traditional stories the form given to Teddy was gained by Kotaro who listened to stories about his grandfather, Momotaros and the other Imagin as Kamen Rider Den-O from the Owner.
He was also the temporary Imagin host for Owner.
Teddy first appears with Kotaro during the events of Final Countdown, both serving to replace Ryotaro and the Tarōs as protectors of spacetime. When Shiro travels back in time to May 23, 1729, and the New DenLiner crew follows, Teddy is the one who learns of Shiro's plans to attack the small village nearby and is seriously wounded by Shiro's forces. He recovers in time to help in the final battle against Kamen Rider Yuuki.
But during the events of Episode Blue: The Dispatched Imagin is Newtral, Teddy is forced to set up a new contract with the Owner as his original contract had expired in the events of Final Countdown and is renamed Aleksandrovic (アレクサンドロヴィチ, Arekusandorovichi). Though he nearly destroys himself in the process by derailing from his contract to help Kotaro, Teddy becomes his partner again.

The Macheteddy (マチェーテディ, Machētedi) instead of possessing his master, Teddy transforms into a weapon wielded by New Den-O Strike Form. It is a large sword with Teddy's face as the guard. With the Macheteddy, New Den-O Strike Form can perform the Counter Slash with Teddy counting down the attack time given to him.
