The TriCyclone (トライサイクロン Torai Saikuron)' is Kamen Rider 3's racing car. It debuts in Super Hero Taisen GP: Kamen Rider 3Icon-crosswiki.

Constructed by Shocker to serve as Rider 3's Rider Machine as part of their plan to assassinate the Double Riders in the past and rewrite history, the TriCyclone's existence is erased after the destruction of History Modifying Machine negates Kyoichiro's modification into a cyborg.

Overview

The TriCyclone so far is armed with two machine guns on the front, several boosters on the back and a pair of pile drivers that can be materialised on both front tires.

History

Challenged by Drive to a race, Kuroi and his TriCyclone was pitted against Drive's Tridoron as well as several fellow Shocker Riders in the Rider Grand Prix. Intent on beating Drive to first place, Rider 3 went as far as even attacking other Shocker Riders; he used TriCyclone's pile drivers to destroy Double's RevolGarry and Gaim's Lock Vehicle Sakura Hurricane, followed by the machine guns to take out Agito's Machine Tornador and Wizard's Machinewinger, with the latter two Riders being ironically rescued by the Shift Tires of Drive. Eventually, after receiving an advance from the Ride Booster Set, Tridoron went head to head with TriCyclone before ultimately overtaking in time to pass the finish in 1st place, besting Rider 3.

Legend Rider Shift Car

Shift TriCyclone

Shift TriCyclone (Machine Mode)

  • Shift TriCyclone (シフトトライサイクロン Shifuto Torai Saikuron): Allows Drive to activate a Legend Rider Tire Exchange. When used in the DX Drive Driver, it gives the sound for a Tire Exchange into Extra Car (エクストラカー Ekusutora Kā).


Notes

  • TriCyclone is the second Showa Era Rider Machine to be a car, the first being the Ridoron.
    • This is the third car-based Rider Machine in the franchise overall and the second in the Heisei Era, with Tridoron being the first.

The toy car advertising

  • The Tricyclone seems to be inspired from a toy car advertisement in the Showa Era, back when the first series was still on the air. The advertisement depicted a small dune buggy-like vehicle being driven by Kamen Rider 1. Like many toylines for children's shows, this ad marketed an item that was not in the actual show.
  • The TriCyclone is based on a first-generation Mazda Eunos Roadster (MX-5 Miata in NA/Europe).
  • The TriCyclone's top speed is 600 km/h (372.82 MPH), the same as Kamen Rider V3's Hurricane.
  • While Rider 3 was neither a member of Tachibana Racing Club, nor affiliated with the Double Riders, the TriCyclone has their logo for no explainable reason.
    • However, Kyoichiro's racing jacket in the original timeline has this logo, signifying his possible affiliation with the racing club.
  • The film-used TriCyclone now is on display in front of the gate of the Ishinomori Manga Museum.[1]
