History

Kamen Rider Kuuga

"You've become Kuuga!"
―Goma, upon witnessing Yusuke's transformation into Kuuga Mighty Form[src]

Goma disguises himself as Father Jose

Among the first Grongi to appear in Nagano, the photosensitive Goma commits vampirism on five humans in a single night until sunrise where he murders the preacher Father Jose and dons his attire to use the Church as a base of operations. He managed to overpower Kuuga until being driven away by the headlights of a police car. When Ichijo uncovered the truth, he battles Goma as the church is set on fire and Yusuke assumes Mighty Form for the first time.

However, though he had the advantage with Zu Gumun Ba's aid, Goma retreats when dawn occurs. Transformation Later donning a black trench coat and fedora to protect himself from direct sunlight, Goma was temporarily removed from the game as a result of the Zu losing the right to play and becomes Ra-Baruba-De's underling. However, flying from Tokyo to the site of Grongi burial grounds in Nagano, Goma found a discarded piece of N Daguva Zeba's body and had the item refined before using it on himself to evolve to a state where he can now resist sunlight and assume Strengthened Form.

But the evolution increased Goma's blood-lust as he actually attacks Baruba to force Daguva's location out of her with the intent to kill Daguva and get all his power. But when Go Gadoru Ba overwhelms him to cover Baruba's escape, Goma is forced to retreat as the final stages of his evolution take effect. Now able to assume his Ultimate Form, Goma goes on a killing spree in Chiba to slaughter as many people as he could before Daguva comes for him. But Kuuga arrives to fight him in Titan Form as Ichijo uses a device specially made to disrupt Goma's via sound waves.

Goma's Death

But Goma manages to destroy the device and was about to kill Kuuga when Daguva finally arrives. He runs off to fight Daguva, only to be slaughtered by him with his corpse found by Yusuke and Ichijo as it is taken for medical analysis, leading to the development of the Nerve Disruptor Rounds.

Movie War 2010

Zu Goma Gu, in his final form, was revived as part of the Dai-Shocker remnant, Super Shocker. He was part of the group led by Colonel Zol who witnessed the revival of the Super Crisis Fortress. When a newly revived Tsukasa, Natsumi, Yusuke, and Kaito arrived, he fought Decade with the Gecko Imagin until Diend finished him with his Final Attack Ride in an exchange finisher.

Notes

Beelzebub Phantom.

  • His name is derived from the Japanese word for "bat" (蝙蝠 Kōmori), as well as opportunist, who this character is.
    • If written in kanji, Goma's name translates as "Strong Demon" (強魔 Gōma) or "fiend". This is in direct referment to his eventual evolution from his Normal Form into his Ultimate Form.
  • The head of Goma's costume would later be modified to become the head of the Beelzebub Phantom in Kamen Rider Wizard.
  • Zu Gooma Gu being a bat Grongi and the second Grongi to appear mirrors Bat Man, the bat Shocker monster and the second monster to be fought by the original Kamen Rider, being the second monster of the first show of the original era just as Zu Goma Gu is the second monster of the first show of the revival era.
  • As Goma used a piece of Daguva's body, his Ultimate Form's enhancements rather fittingly display elements of both the latter and Kuuga's Ultimate Form, with the shoulder spikes being similar to Kuuga's and Daguva's, markings similar to those on Ultimate Kuuga's armor, and white hair possibly as a nod to Daguva's white armor.
