This article is about a/an villain in Kamen Rider Amazon.

Zero the Great (ゼロ大帝 Zero Taitei, 14-24): A body double who poses for the real Zero, using his lance to execute traitors and failures alike. When Amazon arrives to Garanda's base, Zero negates the GiGi Armlet's powers with his lance as the Helium Bomb is installed. However, once the GaGa Armlet is fused to the GiGi Armlet, Amazon become immune to Zero's power as he loses his arm to the Kamen Rider before he gets impaled by his own pit trap.

Background

Zero the Great is the title of those who inherited three sacred treasures of the Garanda Empire's ruling Zero House (ゼロ家 Zero-ka): the Helmet of Flaming Wings (火の翼のかぶと Hi no Tsubasa no Kabuto), the Blood Cloak (血のマント Chi no Manto), and the spear Blue Thunder (青い雷 Aoi Kaminari). The current Zero the Great was said to have been born in 1938, and aged 37 when he was slain in 1975.

The legendary ruler of the Garanda Empire, Zero the Great asserts his claim of descent from the ruling dynasty of the ancient Parthian Empire. He wears a helmet with a flaming decoration while his body is guarded by steel armor. A very cruel man, Zero does not hesitate to execute unsuccessful Beastmen and Kurojusha with a sparkling high voltage beam from the Blue Lightning spear.[1]
