|This article is about a villain in Kamen Rider Zi-O.|
White Woz (白ウォズ, Shiro Wozu) is a zealous supporter of Geiz Myokoin from another world and the main antagonist of Kamen Rider Zi-O NEXT TIME: Geiz, Majesty who traveled to September 2018 in order to help him achieve his destiny to become the world's savior, who also transforms into Another Diend (アナザーディエンド, Anazā Diendo), an Another Rider derived from Kamen Rider Diend.
This version of White Woz hails from one of the Another Worlds created by Swartz and survived his world's destruction. Unlike the version who appeared in the TV series who was erased from existence, he hails from a seperate timeline.
Wielding a brand new Future Note Legend of Savior (救世主伝説, Kyūseishu Densetsu), he arrives to guide Geiz to become his savior. Unbeknownst to the others, he had already stolen Daiki Kaito's powers to become Another Diend. Kaito revealed that he once battled White Woz in an attempt to steal something from him, but was foiled by a decoy used by Futurering Shinobi just as he was about to finish Woz off. White Woz revealed that the reason he forced Geiz to become a savior is so he could devour his power and become the new savior. Geiz clashed against him as GeizRevive, but was outmatched until Daiki gave him the secondary Rider Cards, merging into the GeizMajesty Ridewatch.
After being defeated in battle by GeizMajesty, the Diend Anotherwatch is destroyed before White Woz is swallowed and absorbed by Black Woz without mercy as he pleaded to stop.

Futurering Shinobi (フューチャーリングシノビ, Fyūchāringu Shinobi) is Woz's Kamen Rider Shinobi-based form accessed using the Shinobi Miridewatch in the Beyondriver. Its visor spells out "Shinobi" (シノビ) in katakana.
Using a Futurering ability, Kamen Rider Woz can harness the powers and abilities of Kamen Rider Shinobi via the Shinobi Miridewatch. In this form, he uses ninja techniques and skills to fight against his enemies. It also allows Woz to turn himself into a shadowy mist that can move through surfaces.
Futurering Shinobi adds the following parts:
- Caliber S/FS (キャリバーS/FS, Kyaribā S/FS) - The head. 'FS' stands for 'Futurering Shinobi'.
- Clock Blade S Shinobi (クロックブレードSシノビ, Kurokku Burēdo S Shinobi) - The antenna. It is a data collection device.

- War Signal Shinobi (ウォーシグナル・シノビ, Uō Shigunaru Shinobi) - An information gathering unit located on the forehead behind the Clock Blade S Shinobi. It analyses information, derives the optimum solution to a problem and feeds it to Woz. Additionally, the abilities of Kamen Rider Shinobi is taken into consideration and automatically adjusts Ninjutsu maneuvers.
- Indication Track Eye Shinobi (インジケーショントラックアイ・シノビ, Injikēshon Torakku Ai Shinobi) - The visor which spells out 'Shinobi'.

Behind the Scenes
As with his prime timeline counterpart, this version of White Woz as Another Diend is portrayed by Keisuke Watanabe (渡邊 圭祐, Watanabe Keisuke).
Another Diend was designed by Tamotsu Shinohara (篠原 保, Shinohara Tamotsu).
- Another Diend's chest armor, shoulder pads, and helmet are retooled and repainted from Chinomanako Diend Formation, while his body is retooled and repainted from Another Decade.
- As with most Another Riders, White Woz as Another Diend is similar to Daiki Kaito. Both of them possess cunning and manipulative traits, hailed from a different world, and were initially antagonistic towards the heroes. Both of them also commit acts of thievery by stealing a Rider's powers; for Daiki, it's mostly part of his treasure collection and for White Woz, this iteration stole Diend's powers and seeks to steal Geiz's powers to become a new 'savior'. Whereas Kaito makes no effort to hide his selfishness but has occassional moments of kindness, White Woz pose himself as an ally to Geiz but secretly tries to take the latter's power for himself.
- Another Diend is the only Another Rider that is dated 2018, due to the timeline reset and the story taking place in September 2018.
