|"Electronic Wave Humanoid Tackle!"|
|―Tackle's roll call[src]|
Yuriko Misaki was a newly finished cyborg ready to serve the evil Black Satan organization but she was still inactive. Everything changed as her soon-to-be best friend Shigeru Jo entered the room she was staying in trying to find a way out of Black Satan`s secret lair, found her on an operating table and awakens her. After some talk he convinced her to come with him and together with a good friend to many Kamen Riders, Tobei Tachibana they fought the Black Satan as Kamen Rider Stronger and the Electronic Wave Humanoid Tackle for quite some time. Over time she fell in love with him. But sadly Yuriko gave her life to defeat the evil Doctor Kate in order to save Shigeru from being poisoned. This would forever haunt him and pushed him to undergo surgery in order attain the even more powerful (and dangerous) Charge Up form.

In Kamen Rider Spirits, Shigeru experiences flashbacks about Yuriko when he stumbles upon her shrine while escaping from the ZX Army. He recalls why she was never labeled a "Kamen Rider": she had desired to live a normal life, and through her sacrifice, she had gained her humanity.
Kamen Rider Decade
In the net movie spin-offs of the Kamen Rider Decade movie, Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, they have a different take on Shigeru`s feelings toward Yukiro being a Kamen Rider or not in the first webisode, Petition! Kamen Rider Tackle!!. Here, he meets with Tsukasa Kadoya and the other members of the Hikari Photo Studio, wanting to petition Toei to recognize Tackle as a Kamen Rider and asking for their support. When the group gets to Toei's offices, however, they're surprised to find that Tackle is herself the recruiting director who decides which characters are Riders and which aren't.

Behind the scenes
Yuriko Misaki was portrayed by the late Kyōko Okada (岡田 京子 Okada Kyōko). In Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter she was portrayed by Alice Hirose. In Super Hero Taisen Otsu, she was portrayed by Arisa Komiya (小宮 有紗 Komiya Arisa), who is better known as Yellow Buster Yoko Usami from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
Electronic Wave Humanoid Tackle is featured as #34 in the 1986 archive compilation video Toei 100 Great Heroes Super Fight.
- If one were to count her as a Kamen Rider, then she is the first Rider that was killed and not revived.
- While Tackle's death is a defining moment for Kamen Rider Stronger as a series, according to production notes from Toru Hirayama, there were concept plans to revive her and give her an upgrade form, after which she would have officially been titled a Kamen Rider. This had to be scrapped in order to accommodate the series' shorter 39 episode run. 
- Despite this, she is commonly viewed as the prototype by which later Female Kamen Riders would draw their basis from, similar to how Shadow Moon is the credited inspiration for the later introduction of Amoral, Antagonist and Evil Kamen Riders in the Heisei Kamen Rider series despite Officially not being one himself.
- Shotaro Ishinomori and Kamen Rider co-creator Toru Hirayama conceived the idea of Tackle after receiving fan letters from young girls who said they wanted a hero to pretend to be when playing Kamen Rider with other boys.
- The second episode provides an easily overlooked explanation for why Tackle does not go by the title of Kamen Rider: Yuriko herself chose to name her hero persona Denpa Ningen Tackle after Shigeru named his Kamen Rider Stronger. Her role in Petition! Kamen Rider Tackle!! might be an intentional reference to this.
- Yuriko is the only female Showa character to be a heroine.
- Yuriko serves as the cheer leader for the Kamen Rider team, Typhoon Riders in Battle Baseball.
