Character History

Roidmude 024 was sent with two other accomplices, 037 and 103 to set a city-wide fire via electrical fires. His previous attempts were creating numerous house fires while releasing Slowdown effects. When his two accomplices were chased by Special Investigation Unit members Kiriko Shijima and Shinnosuke Tomari/Kamen Rider Drive, he appeared to their aid and evolved himself as Volt Roidmude. They managed to flee with their lives excluding 037. Managed to avoid Mashin Chaser's punishment, he caught a spying boy named Teruhiko and trapped him inside a machinery with electrical surges flowing. Kiriko and Shinnosuke appeared again with Volt introduce himself and reveal his plan. Shinnosuke as Drive used Type Technic's technological prowess to both combat and saving Teruhiko. Volt Roidmude met his demise after Drive used Rolling Gravity's 10-ton Weight to imprison Volt inside a gravity field before finishing him off with the Door-Ju's PerfecShot finisher, killing both his physical body and core. However, even with his machinery destroyed too, Roidmude 103 escaped undetected but with his severed condition and bringing the important part of Volt's device to Heart. How Can I Get Used to the Cool Body?

The part itself eventually contained Volt's 'soul', where it roamed and caused several blackouts. His new plan is based on a book written by his late human disguise template; to create a massive blackout which would create a huge panic and furthering the Roidmudes' another Global Freeze. He lured Kiriko to an abandoned place and communicated her through a phone to reveal his 'revival'. What is in the Belt's Past? With the help of Goro's former subordinate Koya, Shinnosuke and Kiriko arrived at the Electro Mall and met him as planned. Volt revealed himself as not the real one, but a 'ghost' version of himself. Volt consumed two Spider Viral Cores and morphed into a Berserk Body to battle Tridoron whom Kiriko piloted. As Kiriko is about to be killed by Volt, an unknown figure saved her before Drive Technic appeared. Drive used Tridoron to reduce Volt back to his original state and destroy him while Kiriko destroys his device. Nonetheless from their defeat, the Roidmudes' main goal was accomplished: to revive one of their comrades, Medic. Who Can Prevent the Dark Christmas Eve?

Despite his original demise, he would also came up with a backup plan (recreating his "ghost" version, reviving Medic).

Notes

KRDr-Shoot Roidmude

The Shoot Roidmude

  • Volt taking the identity of Goro Minami is a stealthy pun on gorogoro, the Japanese onomatopoeiac word for "rumble" (which is often used in the context of thunder).
  • Volt's Roidmude number, 024 is a homophone of "double death (ニ死 Nishi), given that the word for "four" (四 Sì) sounding similar to the word for "death" (死 Sǐ). This was shown in his appearance, as he had died once in his own, later died again as Volt Ghost.
  • The Volt Roidmude's costume would be modified to create the Shoot Roidmude. Incidentally, both Roidmude's received modifications to their costumes due to circumstances in their story, Volt having been reincarnated as the Volt Ghost while Shoot was modified by Brain as he restored his body.
    • The only differences is that the Ghost incarnation had a cracked helmet, showing multiple hidden wires.
  • Volt Ghost is the only Roidmude of his type (Spider-Type) to access his Berserk Body form, sharing this distinction with the Cobra-Type Roidmude 074. In contrast, a total of five Bat-Type Roidmudes were shown to have turned into Berserk Body.
