This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider 555.

The Enigmatic Rider (謎のライダー Nazo no Raidā) is the tenth episode of Kamen Rider 555. This is the opening episode of the Kaixa Gear arc as well a brief appearance of Kamen Rider Kaixa.


At the beginning of this episode, Takumi no longer has the Faiz gear. It was surrendered to the Chief of Smart Brain in the previous episode. He appears to be a bit depressed and takes off on his own for a bit. In the meantime, we learn that the Chief has made Kaido the new Faiz and learn that the Chief's philosophy regarding Orphnochs is if they don't attack humans or if they defend them then they are worthless and are to be eliminated.

Kiba still considers himself human and doesn't want to attack humans. Kaido calls him out to fight him but hesitates during the fight. Kiba, in Orphnoch form, disarms Kaido bringing the fight to an end. Yuka and Keitaro find him. While Kaido insults Yuka Keitaro realizes the new Faiz is not an ally of justice and takes back the belt. As he runs away with it he is confronted by an Orphnoch. Takumi arrives to save the day. We see a new rider watching from afar.


Smart Lady gives the Snail Orphnoch one last chance to properly attack a human. Kaido shows Kiba and Yuka the Faiz Gear and tells them that they should think about what they're doing before he has to attack them too. Kiba goes to see Murakami about his plans. Yuka attacks three men as the Crane Orphnoch while Takumi becomes depressed over no longer being Faiz. Kaido later attacks Takumi on his bike but leaves when Murakami calls with a job for Faiz. The Snail Orphnoch finally makes a kill. Kaido and Kiba fight as Faiz and the Horse Orphnoch but Kaido is unable to deal the final blow allowing Kiba to defeat Faiz. Keitaro takes the Faiz Belt from Kaido but he is attacked by the Snail Orphnoch. Takumi saves him and transforms into Faiz and destroys the Orphnoch, watched by another Rider...
