This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Decade.
This article is about the A.R. World version of Kamen Rider Kuuga. For the original Kamen Rider Kuuga, see Yusuke Godai..
"This man is fighting so that no one else need to fight. Even when plunged alone in his darkness, he wants to make others smile. That what he believes! If he protects smiles, then I will protect his smile! Did you know? His smile is not bad."
Tsukasa talking about Yusuke to N-Gamio-Zeda[src]

Yusuke Onodera (小野寺 ユウスケ Onodera Yusuke) is the resident of the World of Kuuga in Kamen Rider Decade. He supports the police and fights the Gurongi as Kamen Rider Kuuga (仮面ライダークウガ Kamen Raidā Kūga), later being recruited by Tsukasa Kadoya as his first companion across the A.R. Worlds. While journeying with Tsukasa, Yusuke takes a backseat from fighting and acts more of an inspirational figure to others instead, as shown with Wataru of the World of Kiva.

Character History

World of Kuuga

After killing the Gurongi Me-Gyarido-Gi and Ra-Dorudo-Gu, Yusuke answers Ai's call about another Gurongi being spotted. After witnessing Decade defeat another Gurongi Ai and Yusuke meet Tsukasa, who offers them his help as a policeman. Although Yusuke seems to be annoyed by this, Tsukasa demonstrates his intellect and baits out two Gurongi. Yusuke recognizes Tsukasa transforming into Decade, the man who will defeat all the riders, and attacks him, but their battle is interrupted by Kick Hopper and Punch Hopper appearing due to a dimensional rift.

After the battle, Tsukasa goes off to a fight a revived N-Gamio-Zeda who is terrorizing the city by converting humans into Gurongi using his miasma. Yusuke saves Ai from the miasma but is afraid to fight because she is dying. Her words are able to convince him otherwise, and Yusuke, along with Tsukasa, defeats Gamio. However, upon his return, Yusuke finds that Ai has died. Yusuke promises to go on fighting, in order to protect everyone else's smile.

But after visiting Ai's tombstone to pay his respects, Yusuke meets Kiva-la who brings him to Castle Doran in Kiva's World, where Yusuke offers his aid to the Fangire King Wataru before joining Tsukasa's group as a resident of Hikari Photo Studio.

However during the Rider War, though his world is destroyed, Yusuke still exists due to his traveling of the Nine Worlds. Even though he is destroyed by Decade in The Last Story, he and his world are restored, allowing him to aid in reviving Decade and defeating the newly formed Super Shocker once and for all.

World of Kiva

After Yusuke was brought to the Kiva World by Kiva-la. Yusuke realized that he is inside the Castle Doran, then Yusuke meets The arms monsters with some of Castle Doran servant. After that Yusuke becomes a guard in Castle Doran that serves the Crown Prince of the Fangire world. The name of the prince is Wataru. As a guard, Yusuke has to protect humans from an evil Fangire.

When Tsukasa and Wataru fought each other, Yusuke forced them to stop fighting. After that, suddenly there was a Fangire that disobeyed the Fangire law of absorbing human life energy was caught by a Guard Fangire. Yusuke tells Wataru and Tsukasa that the guards will protect them from a Fangire that disobey the law.

When Wataru doesn't want to become a king, Yusuke tries to convince Wataru to become a king, but Wataru still doubts himself. After that event, Castle Doran came under attack by the Beetle Fangire. Yusuke protects Wataru by transforming into Kamen Rider Kuuga. Wataru and Yusuke both defeat and then flee because the Beetle Fangire and the Arms Monsters are too powerful. After fleeing, Yusuke convinced Wataru for the second time to return to the castle and accept the offer to become King of the Fangires.

Yusuke returns to Castle Doran and fight the Arms monsters but was defeated. Not long after that Tsukasa and Wataru arrive, and Tsukasa then fights against the Beetle Fangire. During the fight, Yusuke convinces Wataru for the third time to be a King. Being convinced by Yusuke then Wataru wants to become a King and transforms into Kamen Rider Kiva once again. Wataru and Tsukasa then beat the Beetle Fangire.

After that event, Yusuke decides to follow Tsukasa and Natsumi by traveling into the Rider Worlds with them.

Personality and Abilities

Unlike Yusuke Godai who was confident of himself, Onodera was (initially) a rather meek and cowardly man who hesitated to fight the Gurongi. Although not as confident or courageous as the original Yusuke, this Yusuke also tries to protect everyone’s smile thus showing some resemblance. As he traveled with Tsukasa and the others, Onodera gained more confidence and became more mature as he was willing to sacrifice himself to save the Nine Worlds, showing how much he had changed compared to his initial appearance.

Also unlike the original Yusuke, this Yusuke wasn't very good at fighting and lost more battles than he won them. Even when he gained access to Rising Ultimate Form, this Yusuke wasn't able to control it for some time and lost most battles with it.

Video Game appearances

Kamen Rider Battride War

Although the playable Kuuga in Kamen Rider Battride War is confirmed to be Yusuke Godai, Yusuke Onodera makes an unofficial appearance in one mission and is directly referenced in another. In the mission Decade's Awakening, the first "boss" character fought is Kuuga, intended to represent Onodera (though there are no gameplay or vocal changes from the normal Godai version). Additionally, if the player uses Decade in the mission Kuuga's Awakening, Tsukasa will have special dialog where he acknowledges that Godai isn't the same man he traveled with, but says they both have the same desire to protect people's smiles and encourages Godai to remember that desire to help him break free of Mnemosyne. However, Kuuga cannot be used in Decade's Awakening due to the presence of the boss Kuuga, meaning Godai has no special dialog with Tsukasa.

Kamen Rider Battride War Genesis

Kamen Rider Kuuga (Decade) in Battride War Genesis.

Yusuke Onodera makes his playable debut in Battride War Genesis, with Ryota Murai reprising his role from Kamen Rider Decade. The primary difference between the two Kuugas is that Onodera lacks the powered-up Rising Forms, but instead, the charge attack is used to access Ultimate Kuuga (Black Eyes), which act as a limited form change. His strongest form is Rising Ultimate Kuuga (Red Eyes), and his Super Finishing Move is the more powerful version of the Ultimate Kick, the Rising Ultimate Kick.

Forms

Just like the original Kamen Rider Kuuga, Kuuga can change into various forms into which he gains different powers and specialties. While he can transform into Rising Ultimate that Yusuke Godai did not access (until the 53rd/final episode of Kamen Rider Wizard), Onodera has not been seen using the Rising versions of his four basic forms. In the World of Agito, Yusuke dons the Kamen Rider G3-X (仮面ライダーG3-X Kamen Raidā Jī Surī Ekkusu) suit for a while. During the visit to the world of Den-O, Yusuke is possessed by Momotaros, who uses him as a body to transform into Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form (仮面ライダー電王 ソードフォーム Kamen Raidā Den'ō Sōdo Fōmu).

Growing Form (グローイングフォーム Gurōingu Fōmu) is the weakest form of Kuuga and has white armor with small horns. It was only seen in a blink-and-miss moment in episode 3 of Kamen Rider Decade, after he took a powerful blow from N Gamio Zeda. A difference between this Growing Form and Godai's Growing Form is that Onodera is able to transform again without having to wait two hours.

Although his power is weak in this form, he can still use the finisher called Growing Kick (グローイングキック Gurōingu Kikku), though it is only 1/3 as strong as the Mighty Kick.

Mighty Form (マイティフォーム Maiti Fōmu) Mighty Form (マイティフォーム Maiti Fōmu) is Kuuga's red main form. It is the most balanced out of all of his standard forms, and is thus his most used form. Unlike his other forms, it has no personal weapon, instead opting for hand-to-hand combat.

In this form, Kuuga uses the "Mighty Kick" (マイティキック Maiti Kikku), a long running kick which leaves his mark on his target, causing them to explode.

To make up for its weakness, Dragon Form can transform any pole into the Dragon Rod (ドラゴンロッド Doragon Roddo) to use as a staff weapon.

Kuuga's finishing move in this form is the Splash Dragon (スプラッシュドラゴン Supurasshu Doragon), an aerial thrust attack to the torso. This can be in the form of a simple thrust or tossing the Dragon Rod at the target.

Pegasus Form (ペガサスフォーム Pegasasu Fōmu) is Kuuga's green sniper form with massively boosted senses, enabling him to see, hit and hear his opponents with extreme precision. However, this increased sensory stimulation overwhelms Kuuga over time, preventing him from using this form for more than 50 seconds without being forced into Growing Form and made unable to transform again for 2 hours. Pegasus Form can transform any gun-like object into the Pegasus Bowgun (ペガサスボウガン Pegasasu Bōgan), a powerful crossbow.

With the Pegasus Bowgun, Kuuga performs the "Blast Pegasus" (ブラストペガサス Burasuto Pegasasu), an arrow shot from the Bowgun after pulling the hammer back to the fullest length.

Titan Form's impenetrable defenses allow Kugga to endure enemy attacks long enough to approach the opponents. He is armed with the Titan Sword (タイタンソード Taitan Sōdo), which can be transformed from pole-like objects, the handle of Kuuga's bike, or an enemy's weapon.

Titan Form's finishing move is the "Calamity Titan" (カラミティタイタン Karamiti Taitan), a powerful sword thrust wherein Kuuga twists the blade as it is impaled.

Ultimate Form (アルティメットフォーム Arutimetto Fōmu) is Kuuga's final form and the combination of all of his forms' power. In this form, Kuuga is also referred to as the Supreme Warrior (最高戦士 Saikō Senshi). This form puts Kuuga at risk of losing control and becoming a monster bent on destruction like Daguva, and can only be controlled by a person of a pure heart. When Kuuga loses control, his eyes change color from red to black. Thus, this state is called Ultimate Form (Dark Eye) (アルティメットフォーム(ダークアイ) Arutimetto Fōmu (Dāku Ai))[9]. When in battle, Ultimate Form is able to see a monster's human form, and every one of its attacks is guaranteed to draw blood.

Yusuke assumes Ultimate Form when he fights Decade one-on-one. However, he is in his Dark Eye form, revealed to be the result of Yusuke losing control over his attacks when infused with Demon Imperial Power (魔皇力 Maōryoku) by Kiva-la's bite.

Ultimate Form also has pyrokinesis and the ability to use any of Kuuga's weapons, but the latter ability was never shown. Also unseen was Ultimate Form's most powerful attack, the "Ultimate Kick" (アルティメットキック Arutimetto Kikku), which is said to be easily capable of destroying the entire world.

In Kamen Rider Decade, Ultimate Form is also shown to be capable of the Ultimate Punch (アルティメットパンチ Arutimetto Panchi), a punch coated with hot flames.

Unique to Kamen Rider Decade is Kuuga Rising Ultimate (ライジングアルティメット Raijingu Arutimetto). Much like Kuuga's other forms that were given a "Rising" upgrade within the original Kamen Rider Kuuga, Rising Ultimate is an advanced version of Kuuga's Ultimate Form. In this form, Kuuga upgrades previous form's two finishers into more powerful ones: the Rising Ultimate Kick (ライジングアルティメイトキック Raijingu Arutimetto Kikku) and the flaming Rising Ultimate Punch (ライジングアルティメットパンチ Raijingu Arutimetto Panchi). Rising Ultimate Kuuga is first accessed in Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker after Yusuke has been attacked by the Stone of Earth used by High Priestess Bishium, putting him under her control and unleashing all of Kuuga's potential. When Kuuga is under controlled of Bishium, Kuuga's eyes become the Dark Eye (ダークアイ Dāku Ai), and when Kuuga is freed of Bishium's control, the eyes change color from the Dark Eyes to the Red Eyes (レッドアイ Reddo Ai), a form where Onodera made his heart to its purest potential. He later uses this form again in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010 to fight Doras thanks to Decade's K-Touch.

Super Rising Ultimate (スーパーライジングアルティメット Sūpā Raijingu Arutimetto) is is an even further evolution of Rising Ultimate exclusive to the S.I.C. Hero Saga.

This form is attained after Kuuga is infused with electrical power from Kamen Rider Stronger and Kamen Rider OOO Shauta Combo's Unagi Whip. In this form, Kuuga's entire body, including the eyes and Amadam, turn gold in colour as a result of this super evolution. As this form is an upgrade of Rising Ultimate form, Kuuga supposedly surpass almost every single Kamen Rider in this form and can be considered one of the strongest and most powerful Kamen Riders in existence.

Decade's Final Form Ride Card allows Kuuga to transform into the Kuuga Gouram (クウガゴウラム Kūga Gōramu), giving him the ability to fly. This form is used again in the World of Den-O to assist Decade and Den-O and allowing Momotaros to execute the Decade Liner (ディケイドライナー Dikeido Rainā) Final Attack Ride. The Kuuga Gouram rushes toward Decade with the target stuck in his pincers while Decade performs the Mighty Kick-like Decade Assault (ディケイドアサルト Dikeido Asaruto)[12][13] attack towards the target. After the card is used, Kuuga can change into this form at will before Decade uses the Kuuga Final Attack Ride Card.[14]

In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010, Kamen Rider Kuuga shows the ability to transform into the Kuuga Gouram without Kamen Rider Decade using the Final Form Ride Card.

In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010, Kamen Rider Kuuga Ultimate Form transforms into the Ultimate Kuuga Gouram (アルティメットクウガゴウラム Arutimetto Kūga Gōramu), a more powerful version of the Kuuga Gouram, to fight Kamen Rider Decade Violent Emotion. However, he is soon defeated and becomes a Kamen Ride card for Decade but appears again when Decade uses the All Rider Final Form Ride Card to fight the Super Crisis Fortress. The Ultimate Kuuga Gouram can execute the Ultimate Assault (アルティメットアサルト Arutimetto Asaruto), by crushing the enemy in its pincers and rushing towards a hard surface. The Ultimate Kuuga Gouram is similar to the Kuuga Gouram, though it has the color scheme and the head crest of Ultimate Form and has Black Eyes.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010.

It is unknown if it has the same A.I. installed as the original G3-X, though the existence of the G4 chip suggests that this may be the case. Yusuke briefly donned the G3-X suit in the World of Agito.

  • Kicking power: 7 t[18]
  • Maximum jump height: 35 m[18]
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m per 5.2 seconds[18]

During the visit to the world of Den-O, Yusuke was possessed by Momotaros, who uses him as a body to transform into Kamen Rider Den-O Sword Form (仮面ライダー電王 ソードフォーム Kamen Raidā Den'ō Sōdo Fōmu).

When possessing Yusuke (or anyone else) or by himself, Momotaros can assume Den-O's Sword Form through the Terminal Buckle, the first and most used form in the series. When in Sword Form he uses the DenGasher as a standard sword-style weapon. This form is the most balanced among Den-O's forms, probably due to Momotaros' prominence among the other Imagin. He occasionally forms different finishers for defeating enemies, despite parts 2, 3, and 5 being similar to each other. He also uses a Special Version in I'm Born which resembles the aforementioned parts, the only difference is that Full Charge is used twice. There is also a Final Version used against the Death Imagin which uses energy from the other Taros, Sieg, and Kamen Rider Zeronos. The Cho Den-O series Sword Form also has a triple Roundhouse Rider Kick that Momotaros dubs his "Super Finishing Attack." The DenKamen Mask resembles two halves of a peach, which is based on the story of Momotaro.
