This article is about a/an transformation device in Kamen Rider, the original series.
Covered Rider 1's Typhoon
Rider... Transform!" ―Transformation call
Typhoon ( is タイフーン ) Taifun Kamen Rider 1's transformation belt which is powered by wind. His first belt has a white strap until he receives an upgrade (along with a new costume) with a red strap similar to Kamen Rider 2's belt. Furthermore, the Typhoon is also present to Shocker Inhumanoids as well, though only to be concealed with the Shocker emblem buckle.
In its original form, Hongo needed to expose his Typhoon Belt to strong gusts of wind in order to transform, typically while riding his Cyclone motorcycle. After Hongo's upgrade, he gained the ability to absorb wind by himself, similar to Ichimonji.
The elder Takeshi of the present day, as seen in
, now has his Typhoon belt with a shield the same as found in Rider 2's belt, which would remain shut until he transformed. This is presumably the result of a further modification.

Later, in the
film, Rider 1 gains another new upgrade which upgrades his Typhoon as well. This Typhoon's belt strap is white and has a large shield covering the belt which only opens up during transformation, similar to Kamen Rider 1 Super-1's Cyclode belt. When Takeshi had died, this Typhoon was able to absorb the energies from the flames of his pyre, which were powerful enough to revive him.

Transform! V3!" ―Transformation call
The "Kamen Rider No.1 Typhoon" (right) and "
Kamen Rider No.2 Typhoon" (left) powers were combined to charge the Double Typhoon, Kamen Rider V3's transformation belt and first and foremost weapon. Shiro Kazami transforms into V3 by performing the "transform", a series of moves which activates the 2 revolving pistons of the Double Typhoon, and then converts the accumulated wind energy to transform Kazami into Kamen Rider V3. The combination of the Double Riders' Typhoons allows V3 to utilize both the "Skill" of No.1 and the "Strength" of No.2.
Kamen Rider Decade used his Kamen Ride Card to disguise himself as Ichigo, the Decadriver took on the appearance of Rider 1's Typhoon belt, unlike other Kamen Rides where the Decadriver is still present. It changed back when the Decadriver/Typhoon was struck by Captain Marvelous as Akarenger. It is unknown if this is a property of the card itself or a yet-undemonstrated ability of Decade's.
