As Kamen Rider Kabuto was the 35th anniversary of the Kamen Rider Series, Masked Rider Project as mentioned in the course of the series was said to be started on 3 April 1971. The Worm species known as Natives also first arrived on Earth on the same year. In real-life, it was the date that the first episode of Kamen Rider, the original series, was first broadcast.
In Hyper Battle DVD, Kabuto Zecters and Gattack Zecters explained that each Zecters chose people based on their personality. Lists of the known candidate reasons are:
- Kabuto: Choose the one with the life path of Heaven.
- Gattack: Choose the one with the straight forward and righteous heart of justice.
- TheBee: Choose the one with the great loyalty.
- Drake: Choose the one who prioritize freedom.
- Sasword: Choose the one who aim to be the best of everything.
- Hopper: Choose the one who aim to live in Hellish world.
Despite the explanation, however. Kabuto and Gattack Zecters were made only so they can be used by Soji Tendo and Arata Kagami according to the series canon when Soji and Arata found a file about Zecters creation. In Zi-O, Kabuto Zecter also lend its power to Arata when he couldn't defeat Another Kabuto.
List of Zecters
There are twelve known Zecters within the Masked Rider System, each allowing the user to become a different Rider. The majority are based on insects, with the sole exception being the Sasword Zecter, which is a scorpion, an arachnid.
There also exist two other Zecters known as the Perfect Zecter and the Hyper Zecter. The Perfect Zecter serves as a primary weapon while the Hyper Zecter is a power-up device that enhances the powers of the original Zecter. Both were only used by Kabuto in the series, but Gatack got to use the Hyper Zecter in the Hyper Battle DVD.
The voice of the Zecters was provided by Surage Gajria (スラージ・ガジリア Surāji Gajiria). When given personalities in Kamen Rider Kabuto: Birth! Gatack Hyper Form!!, the Kabuto Zecter and Gatack Zecter were voiced by Tomokazu Seki (関 智一 Seki Tomokazu) and Kōji Yusa (遊佐 浩二 Yusa Kōji) respectively.
