(Man of the Beginning)

"This is my/our stage now!"
―Kouta's pre-fight catchphrase[src]

"This power exists to protect those who can't fight!"
―Kouta's unwavering resolve to stop Demushu[src]

"It doesn't matter who's on my side! I'm still protecting the same people! Even if I completely change in the end!"
―Kouta talks to Redyue[src]

Kouta Kazuraba (葛葉 紘汰 Kazuraba Kōta?), also written as Kota Kazuraba in different publications, is one of the main characters and the main protagonist as well as the titular character of the Kamen Rider Series installment, Kamen Rider Gaim. He first gains the ability to transform by accident when he finds the Sengoku Driver, being called Armored Rider Gaim (アーマードライダー鎧武 [ガイム] Āmādo Raidā Gaimu?) by DJ Sagara. Throughout the series, Kouta is determined to protect Zawame City from the ongoing Helheim Invasion and other invaders, gaining the title of Kamen Rider Gaim (仮面ライダー鎧武 [ガイム] Kamen Raidā Gaimu?, lit. "Armored Warrior") when aiding his predecessors during the finale of Kamen Rider Wizard and the Heisei vs Showa Rider conflict.

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

Growing up, Kouta's parents died in an accident causing him to be raised by his older sister, Akira Kazuraba. Kouta throughout his High School years bumped into Kaito Kumon on various occasions. Sometime after High School, Kouta joined Team Gaim as one of their dancers to express himself as the youthful young adult he was. However, he later quits Team Gaim to help lessen the load that his sister deals with to financially sustain the two of them. This act of quitting causes his fellow dancer, Mai Takatsukasa to resent him as she views that Kouta simply got bored of dancing and has grown up to do "boring" adult work.

Beat Riders SagaEdit

"Looking back on it, that was when the gears were just starting to turn. But, we didn't realize anything at all. We didn't know that our fates were already written in stone. We just wanted the power to reach our dreams. We thought that help shape us. That's what we all believed. In the endless war that was yet to come. We would discover that for ourselves."
―Kouta looking back on his actions and looking back at all of his friends and rivals[src]
Kouta, a young adult, was called by Team Gaim's leader, Yuya Sumii, who wants to show him something that can help their team. However, Kouta is unable to find his old friend and is pulled into a mysterious forest with his former teammate, Mai. There, Kouta finds a mysterious belt and using it with a freshly ripened Lockseed to fight an Inves that targets him and Mai. Quickly, Kouta realizes that the Sengoku Driver is not a toy after his near-death experience with Zangetsu. Trying to find a means to put the belt to its best use, Kouta uses his newfound powers to battle Inves in the Inves Games, earning Kouta the name of "Armored Rider Gaim" as he becomes Team Gaim's official member in Yuya's stead.

Eventually, Kouta and Mitsuzane set up a new Inves Game that takes place within the Helheim Forest to lure out the puppet master behind the Sengoku Drivers and to uncover the identity and intentions of the White Armored Rider. During this event, Kouta and Mitsuzane manage to persuade the other Armored Rider teams to participate as a distraction (unknown to them) so that Kouta can investigate the humans present in the forest and the "White Armored Rider". From the games, Kouta learns that the Armored Riders are guinea pigs for the Yggdrasill Corporation and that the Sengoku Drivers feedback data to Yggdrasill. Learning that Sid has been using Kouta and the other Armored Riders, Kouta tells Sid that he isn't a rat in their maze. Kouta, along with Team Gaim later dance off during their Christmas event with Kouta reminiscing about being an adult and that one doesn't become one because they want to, but rather it just happens.

Yggdrasill Saga & Helheim SagaEdit

"What good is a future bought with the lives of that many innocent people? Don't be stupid! You can't bring hope in exchange for that kind of sacrifice! You'll just bring them despair instead!"
―Kouta clashes ideals with Takatora[src]
Buy some lemons

The first of many instances of blatant favoritism.

Kouta soon finds himself and his fellow Beat Riders caught in Yggdrasil's trap. With the Inves Game serving as a cover for the increasing rate at which Inves are naturally appearing in Zawame City, the Beat Riders have now become scapegoats. While dealing with one such Inves, Kouta witnesses the horrifying truth of how the Inves are created firsthand as former Rider Ryoji Hase is tempted by Helheim's fruit and eats it, transforming into an Inves. Kouta struggles with killing Hase, and eventually has the choice taken away from him as Hase is instead disposed of by Sid, now bearing the new and improved Genesis Driver. With the introduction of the New Generation Riders, the Beat Riders are obsolete, and Kouta is captured along with Kaito. Both are brought to Ryoma Sengoku, the creator of the Lockseeds, and offered the opportunity to serve as test subjects for him. Later, in his cell, Kouta is visited by DJ Sagara, who after some questioning grants him the Lemon Energy Lockseed and Genesis Core along with a keycard to escape Yggdrasil, promising future rewards as long as Kouta keeps making the story interesting for him.
Orange steals the peach

"Ha! Now you have to buy the girl Rider's toy!"

After his escape Kouta helps unify and restore the good name of the Beat Riders. Several more clashes with the New Generation Riders ensue, during which Kouta wins the Cherry Energy Lockseed from a battle with Sid and steals the Peach Energy Lockseed from Minato. Along the way he learns both more of Helheim's secrets and of Yggdrasil's plan to exterminate six-sevenths of humanity so that the survivors can adapt to Helheim with the use of the Sengoku Drivers.

During an invasion of Yggdrasil, Kouta duels with Takatora yet again, now evenly matched with the once-invincible warrior thanks to his battles with the New Generation Riders forcing him to get good. It's at this point that Takatora reveals to Kouta the awful truth that Yuya has been dead all along, killed by Kouta's own hands as the very first Inves he slew. Kouta's spirit is shattered by this revelation, and he's forced to retreat once more.

"I...I've been fighting because I couldn't live with what Yggdrasill was doing. But I did exactly the same thing. I claimed I was protecting people, but I had to sacrifice others to do it. Then what am I fighting for? Just to decide who would be saved and who would have to go? Can you call that protecting at all?"
―Kouta's conversation with DJ Sagara who reveals himself in Kouta's time of need[src]
Metal orange

"So you're giving Kaito upgrades like this too, right?" "Giving him what now?"

DJ Sagara appears once more, this time convincing Kouta that if a rule of life is that victory requires sacrifice, then his goal should be to change the rules. He provides Kouta with knowledge of the Overlords, along with the half-truth that they control Helheim and could stop its invasion if they so chose, and a second gift in the form of the Kachidoki Lockseed, displaying his otherworldly nature for the first time as he forms it directly out of an orange. Revitalized by Sagara's words, Kouta sets out having found his resolve...er, again.

Kouta and Mai witness Kaito actually smiling and dancing, having a great time before deducing that something is off with Kaito.

Later he is forced to reveal what he has been hiding from Mai, thinking he no longer has the right to be near Team Gaim and his friends. However to his shock, Mai comforts Kouta, telling him that he doesn't need to keep the burden to himself and that she's there for him. Gaining a job at Drupers, Mai does his shifts for him as the two start to spend more time with each other. In one of these times spent together, the two find a robot by the name of Jiro. Kouta lets Jiro stay at his apartment showing Jiro that they need to protect people. However, Jiro is overwhelmed by two conflicting processes and wishes to protect those he cares about and wants to regain his lost memories. Kouta reboots Jiro, allowing Jiro to regain his lost memories and become Kikaider, and the two gang up against Hakaider (Ryoma). In the aftermath, Kouta bids his farewell to Jiro, the latter unable to recognize Kouta, which saddens him.

Over Lord SagaEdit

"Right now, I need more power! Kaito...and the rest are still fighting. I can't just leave everything to them! Whether it's enough or not...can't be known. Right now...all I can do...is think about what I can do, right now!"
―Kouta's explanation to DJ Sagara while struggling to obtain Kiwami Lockseed[src]
Aware of the Over Lord's existence, Kouta seeks out to find them, only to realize that they have become disillusioned after centuries of boredom. As the Over Lords view the human race as apes, Kouta struggles to gain their attention to stop the invasion of the forest. However, Kouta's journey to gain the Over Lord's support runs dry as he stops the fight between Demushu and Baron. Kouta teams up with Oren as the two aid Yggdrasill from Demushu's rampage, and Kouta's unwavering resolve allows Takatora to realize that the Over Lords are the key to saving humanity rather than culling humanity through Project Ark.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Through a long chain of events to encourage the Over Lords to stop their invasion of Helheim, Kouta is faced to battle Zangetsu Shin numerous times, who in reality is Mitsuzane masquerading as Takatora to destroy their newfound friendship and trust. When a battle breaks out in the Helheim Forest with Baron, Zangetsu Shin, Sigurd, and Over Lord Demushu. Demushu escapes into the city and starts to wreck Zawame. Kouta and Kaito enter the city to stop him, but the two are overpowered and Kouta is gravely injured in the ensuing battle through Marika and the Kurokage Trooper's interference. With the help of Kaito, Kouta makes his way back to Team Gaim's garage where he listens to Kaito's reasoning for wanting to be strong before Kouta collapses due to heavy injuries and exhaustion. Coming to his time of need is DJ Sagara, prepared to give Kouta the means to become stronger with the key-like Lockseed created from the Forbidden Fruit. However, even though he heals Kouta's wounds with his abilities, he still tests Kouta to see if he really wants the power. Kouta struggles to surpass Sagara's otherworldly abilities and obtains the new Lockseed, the Kiwami Lockseed, and thus joining Baron, Knuckle, Marika, Bravo and Gridon in fighting an Enchanted Form Demushu. Kouta transforms into Kiwami Arms in battling Demushu overpowering him with ease and destroys Demushu.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Forbidden Fruit SagaEdit

With Zawame in tatters, the remaining Riders form a group that constantly patrols the outskirts of Zawame. Kouta comes to learn Yoko's allegience and realizes that he doesn't know what he will do after the Inves Invasion. He eventually fights Zangetsu Shin once more and helps destroy Dyudyuonshu and learns that Zangetsu Shin is an imposter. While trying to figure a way to save the remaining survivors of Zawame, he loses his sister as she gets captured with the remaining survivors. Kouta and Kaito defeat Grinsha after witnessing the powers granted by the Forbidden Fruit as Rosyuo redirects warhead missiles aimed at Zawame.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Kouta eventually learns that Mitsuzane envies his optimistic, naïve nature and that he has found him unworthy of being with Mai before promptly attacking him. When Takatora stops Mitsuzane, Kouta learns that the two are siblings and Takatora later explains to Kouta that if Kouta was his brother in place of him, Mitsuzane wouldn't have become the person he is now. Kouta later tries to stop the siblings from fighting, but is interrupted by the Grasshopper Monster, a being from the future as Kouta witnesses through a Crack: his own future and his Over Lord counterpart, Lapis. When Kouta arrives at the pier, he sees Takatora's Sengoku Driver destroyed alongside the Melon Lockseed. Returning back to the Garage, he faces off against Ryoma Sengoku and appears to be on equal footing with the Professor, indicating Kouta's strength compared to their last encounter.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Kouta's faphand

Kouta begins to realize he should really cut his nails.

In a short conversation with Mai and Kaito about what they plan on doing after the Inves Invasion is over, Kouta reveals that he doesn't know what's in store for his future. This hesitation, along with the fact that he cannot accept Mitsuzane as the person he currently is now, allows the latter to defeat Kouta and Kaito in their next encounter when Mai is kidnapped and Peko is brutally beaten. Though, Kouta and the rest of the Armored Riders break into the Yggdrasill Tower through a secret passageway, the remainder of the Armored Riders are left behind as decoys to allow Kouta to gain entry into the tower. Kouta and Ryoma are the last ones left and the two are able to defeat Shinmugurun. The two rush to the site where the kidnapped citizens' life energy are being drained. Kouta and Ryoma encounters Redyue, but Ryoma abandons Kouta when the latter is thrown in a hallucination where Yuya's role as an Inves and Kouta's role as a Rider are reversed. In this hallucination, it reveals that the world will reject Kouta and his newfound power because he's no longer "human". Kouta, however, reveals to Redyue that he will fight, even if he's alone, for the future that he desires. Breaking through the hallucination, Kouta unintentionally generates Helheim flora around him, now finding his resolve and clearing his doubts...again.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Once he meets up with Kaito, the two face off against Rosyuo, who tests their abilities and their resolve. Though, Kouta is able to prove his resolve to Rosyuo, his Kachidoki Lockseed is destroyed. Rosyuo is then backstabbed by Redyue and is brutally murdered by her when she discovers that he no longer bears the second Golden Fruit. Kouta, in a fit of rage of witnessing Rosyuo's death, rejuvenates the Kachidoki Lockseed and transforms into Kiwami Arms, utilizing the power to control Helheim's flora against Redyue and kills her with an Orange Charge with the DJ Gun. Kouta later fights off against Mitsuzane, unable to injure Mitsuzane due to their past friendship. Kouta resolves to not fight against his former friend and gets himself impaled while breaking the Yomotsuheguri Lockseed. Kouta forgives Mitsuzane once more before collapsing, supposedly dying from his wounds. His body was found by Chucky and Peko as the two went to take him back to the garage. He then had a vision of Mai as the Woman of the Beginning, who told Kouta that she is no longer human and about Kaito planning to change the future once he gains the Forbidden Fruit.

Template:Storylink Template:Storylink Template:Storylink

Revived, he heads out to face Kaito, who in turn transforms into Lord Baron and fights Gaim Kiwami Arms. Kouta is defeated due to his wound not being fully healed, but an ally-turning Zack tells him to run, having him to be curious about his plan. After Kouta's wound has been fully healed, he would eat one of the Helheim's fruits and told Akira that he would help others despite of him losing his humanity until the rescue team arrives. Taking his sister to the team, Kouta decides to remain in Zawame to confront Kaito. Before that, Mai appears to him and having Kouta realize his future to fight for his friends. Arriving at where Kaito was, he told Kouta that he wants a world where the weak are never trampled. He would protest about it, seeing that many people have fought to protect their world as Kaito believes that it leads them to death. Kouta reiterates that true stength is not based on power alone and engages Kaito in an all out war between the two Inves factions. In the outcome in the alternate and main timelines, Kouta defeats Kaito and accepts the Golden Fruit from Mai, evolving into a new form with blonde-hair and dons Kiwami Arms-esque armor. Kouta reveals his intent to Sagara that he plans on eliminating the Inves and the Helheim invasion by relocating them to a different world, far from Earth. By doing so, he grants Kaito's wish of creating a world where the weak must suffer to become strong. Kouta, along with Mai and Sagara, departs to a new world.
"I told you before. You're only gold on the surface."
―Kouta rebutts Kougane's claims of being the Golden Fruit[src]

Now as a Man of the Beginning, Kouta has the ability to speak to others through their dreams. He intercepts Takatora's dream to wake up from his coma, before talking with him about supporting Mitsuzane's future and redemption from now on. Kouta appears before Mitsuzane four months later to aid him against Kougane and frees the girl from Kougane's control. The two kill Kougane with a double Rider Kick. After a brief talk with Mitsuzane, he then leaves Earth. Kouta watches Mai talk to Kaito one last time before the two depart to their new world, which has been terraformed and resembles Earth.

Movies and other eventsEdit

Kamen Rider Wizard Finale & Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie BattleEdit

The following events takes place sometime after Episode 6, but before Episode 10.

Kouta later appears in the World within the Magic Stone. Summoned by Haruto and assuming Orange Arms, Gaim helps Kamen Rider Wizard and Haruto against Amadum's minions. Later, he is summoned once more by Haruto, this time, joining forces with all his other titular predecessors and inheriting the name of Kamen Rider Gaim. After this event, the Beat Riders have a dance off in a stadium filled with tons of fans, competing against each other. However, the Nepenthes Monster attacks, causing Ryugen, Baron, and Gaim to follow it via a Crack into the Sengoku Period World. Kouta and Mitsuzane become Ieyasu's replacement Bujins. With the "death" of Mitsuzane, Kouta finds himself broken, resolving to never fight again. However, he is confronted by Mai and Haruto Soma that to fight also means to protect something you care about. Taking these words to heart, Kouta uses this as his newfound inspiration to fight, gaining the resolve to beat Baron and earn his allegiance in defeating Bujin Gaim and the Nepenthes Monster. Freeing Mitsuzane from the Nepenthes Monster and Bujin Gaim, Kouta teams up with the other Armored Riders, Wizard, and Beast, destroying the two villains. In the aftermath, the group returns to Zawame, leaving the Sengoku Period World, and Helheim Forest, resuming their tournament.

Kamen Rider Gaim Hyper Battle DVD: Fresh Orange Arms is Born!Edit

The following event takes place sometime after Episode 11, but before Episode 12.

During the Hyper Battle Video, Kouta's Lockseeds become rusted. Going through a great effort to revitalize the Lockseeds with Kaito and Mai, his Orange Lockseed eventually becomes fresh. Kouta uses the Fresh Orange Arms against Ryugen Pine Arms - defeating him with a Fresh Orange Squash (Rider Kick). He also defeats Baron Kiwi Arms with a Fresh Orange Au Lait (Rider Slash) and even manages to gain the upper hand against Zangetsu Mango Arms, defeating the unrivaled White Armored Rider with a Fresh Orange Sparking (Rider Slash), shocking the latter and marks the first time Kouta defeats Takatora. In the aftermath, he reveals that his Pine Lockseed also turned fresh, despite that it was Kaito who finally has a fresh smile, a nod to the fact that Kaito's first Fruit Lockseed was Pine, not Banana.

Template:TK & Kamen Rider TaisenEdit

The following events takes place sometime after Kaito's defeat to Demushu in Episode 24, but before he gets his Genesis Driver upgrade in Episode 26.

Kouta attempts to send Mai away with the ToQgers, but she is captured by the Badan Underground Empire. He successfully saves her. During the events of Kamen Rider Taisen, he joins Mai into an abandoned construction site and meet a boy named Shu, who has otherworldly powers. The boy is targeted by both Badan and the Showa Riders, causing Kouta to watch over the boy. Eventually he faces off against the boy's father, Ren Aoi, who uses the Fifteen Lockseed and Heisei Rider Lockseed to transform into Kamen Rider Fifteen. Kouta also joins forces with the remainder of the Heisei Riders against the Showa Riders. With just Gaim and ZX left as the only two riders, ZX obtains all the Rider Lockseeds and flings them at Gaim, causing Gaim to surge with power and summon the defeated Riders causing the Showa and Heisei Riders to team up against Badan. Kouta uses the 1 Arms from the Showa Rider Lockseed to defeat Fifteen. Despite defeating Badan, Kamen Rider 1 still believed that the hate between the Showa and Heisei Riders are real. The two sides commence battle once more, but the battle ends when 1 admit defeat after seeing Gaim protecting a lone flower in the battlefield, acknowledging Gaim's will to protect life as true strength, and Gaim as a real Kamen Rider. The Riders call truce and the Showa Riders congratulate the young Riders.

  • An alternate ending to this film exists where Kouta admits defeat to Hongo, realizing that Hongo had been holding back the entire fight. The battle ends, and Kouta learns from it that real strength is kindness. He is then recognized by Kamen Rider 1 as a true Kamen Rider.

Golden Fruits Cup!Edit

At some point during episode 38, Kouta meets Lapis, a mysterious boy who is intrigued by soccer. Kouta is thrown into an alternate reality where Helheim has yet to invade, Yuuya is alive, and dancing is replaced by soccer as the competition of choice among the Beat Riders. Though confused, Kouta accepts the new world he's in until his fellow Riders start attempting to kill each other and vanish into thin air. Kouta investigates and discovers that the Yuuya of this alternate Zawame is actually Kougane, an embodiment of a false Golden Fruit gaining power through the deaths of the Riders. Kouta is defeated by Kougane and is corrupted into Kouta Yami. However, Kouta finds his resolve and clears his doubts, breaking free of the brainwashing and reviving the fallen Riders to aid him against Kougane. After defeating Kougane, the new Zawame City crumbles apart, and Kouta finds himself back in the original Zawame City with Lapis fading away.

Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full ThrottleEdit

Some weeks to months after the end of the series, Kouta and Mai's planet is attacked by a mysterious enemy known as Megahex, a sentient planet which overcame Helheim's trial by becoming a unified cybernetic consciousness and now travels the universe assimilating other worlds. One of Megahex's avatars kidnaps Mai and battles Kouta, absorbing the knowledge of Earth from him and leaving to assimilate that planet as well. Kouta follows, and prevents Megahex's initial attack at the cost of his own destruction, leaving behind only the Kiwami Lockseed. The Lockseed is soon taken by one of Megahex's avatars to enhance its own powers.

Takatora eventually manages to retake the Kiwami Lockseed, which activates and recreates Kouta from the backup copy that he stored inside it. Kouta fights together with the Kureshima brothers against Megahex, soon joined by Shinnosuke Tomari as he arrives from the other half of the movie. Together the two Riders destroy the Megahex planet. Afterward, Kouta intends to return with Mai back to his planet, but his friends appear and ask that he stick around for long enough for a proper farewell this time. Kouta finds his resolve and clears his doubts, resuming human form together with Mai as they rejoin their friends.

Kamen Rider Gaim: Final StageEdit

File:GaimMajesuBaron.png

Kouta is subdued by Maja and the revived Armored Riders and Over Lords and subsequently loses his memories. However, Kaito breaks from Maja's control and seeks to aid Kouta and regains his memories and fights against Maja (who assumes the Gaim Yami form). Kouta later revives and summons all of the previous Armored Riders to aid (with Duke and Sigurd included) to face off against Maja and the Over Lords.Template:-

Template:TKEdit

Due to the timeline alteration caused by Shocker, Kouta's transition into an Over Lord was prevented, therefore he fights as a normal human in that timeline. He later volunteered in a Kamen Rider Grand Prix and aided the other Riders to combat Shocker. But later he was eliminated by Kamen Rider 3 during the Rider Grand Prix, along with Double.

Template:-

PersonalityEdit

Kouta is the embodiment of the belief that the only person deserving of power is one who doesn't want it. In contrast to all of the other Armored Riders and Overlords, Kouta is utterly lacking in ambition or any way in which he wants to change the world. This causes him to emphasize protecting people where the other Riders often do not, but also makes him extremely vulnerable to losing his resolve whenever his naive worldview is challenged. This results in Kouta having to rediscover his reasons for fighting many times throughout the show, to the point that it's a running gag in this article, but it's this very lack of reason to fight that ultimately makes him the only one worthy of the Golden Fruit. While there are other Riders who might use the Golden Fruit's power for peace, Kouta is the only one of them to also have the sheer power necessary to claim it.

Kouta is also a massive dork, a trait often played for comedy. Even as the Man of the Beginning, where he attempts to display a more regal bearing, Kouta remains prone to comedic slip-ups, backseat driving, and is unsure how to properly describe his new role to others, settling on calling himself "some kind of space god".

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Kouta has a sufficiently vivid imagination to be able to see the trains of the Rainbow Line, which normally can only be seen by children.

As an Overlord
Use of Kiwami Arms gradually infuses Kouta with too much of Helheim's power to be without side effects, and he eventually becomes a Helheim-based lifeform. In doing so he gains the abilities of an Overlord while retaining his human shape. As an Overlord, Kouta can summon and control the forest's vines as a weapon, restore damaged Lockseeds, and create cracks to call forth Inves, which he can command at will. This also grants him a powerful healing factor, allowing him to recover from seemingly fatal wounds, but comes at the cost of no longer feeling any desire to eat food that is not the fruit of Helheim.

As the Man of the Beginning
After eating the Golden Fruit, Kouta's Overlord powers are enhanced dramatically. In this form Kouta's ability to create cracks and manipulate Helheim life is expanded to a planetary scale, allowing him to eliminate all of Helheim's presence from the Earth by transporting it to an uninhabited planet in a distant galaxy. He is capable of transforming directly into Kiwami Arms without the use of a belt, though he may also manually switch his Lockseeds if desired. The Kiwami Lockseed serves as a backup memory for Kouta in this form, allowing him to recreate himself from it if he is slain in battle. In addition to these powers Kouta is capable of enormous feats of telekinesis and force projection, much like Roshuo, but this power is not without limit. Time travel and raising the dead without a backup to work from are both feats beyond him.

ArmsEdit

Like his fellow Lockseed-using Armored Riders, Kamen Rider Gaim's forms are called Arms (アームズ Āmuzu?). His Sengoku Driver plays Japanese horagai music and announces "Soiya" (ソイヤ?) before every transformation, except when he transforms into Kiwami Arms, while his personal Lockseeds are styled with a mix of Japanese words and English words. With the exception of Suika Arms, all of Gaim's Japanese Samurai, Ninja, and Shogun-themed Arms' helmets share the title Kabuto (カブト? lit. "Helmet"), while his visors are called Pulp Eye (パルプアイ Parupu Ai?).

By pressing the Sengoku Driver's Cutting Blade down on the Lockseed after transforming from one to three times, Gaim can activate one of three finishing moves based on his current Arms form: Squash (スカッシュ Sukasshu?), Au Lait (オーレ Ōre?), or Sparking (スパーキング Supākingu?). In addition to the Sengoku Driver's finishing moves, Gaim can perform either a Fruits Charge (フルーツチャージ Furūtsu Chāji?) or Sonic Volley (ソニックボレー Sonikku Borē?) finishing attack by inserting a Lockseed into the attachment slot of either his Musou Saber, Sonic Arrow, or DJ Gun.

File:Gaim Standard RideWear.png

The Ride Wear (ライドウェア Raido Uēa?) is Gaim's default form undersuit, which is briefly seen during Gaim's transformation sequence before the Armor Part attaches or when he changes Arms. However, this form is completely vulnerable to any incoming attacks when shot at directly in the suit rather than at the Arms that is descending down on the Rider.

Gaim is distinct among the Armored Riders in that he is equipped with a Lockseed Holder on the right side of his Sengoku Driver, which is used to carry his first three Lockseeds (Orange, Pine, and Ichigo). He is also one of only a select few Armored Riders who are defaultly equipped with a Musou Saber side weapon, which is held on the left side of his Sengoku Driver with a holster.

The Ride Wear that Gaim's Sengoku Driver has is easily identifiable through its Rider Indicator (ライダーインジケーター Raidā Injikētā?) faceplate. The Rider Indicator only identifies what Ride Wear a Sengoku Driver contains for simplicity and can be replaced with extensions such as the Genesis Core or Senyo Joint.

In the case of Gaim, it has been shown that certain Arms which are particularly unique and powerful can make minor modifications to the Ride Wear as part of the Arms Change.

  • When Gaim assumes Fresh Orange Arms, the gold parts on his Ride Wear become orange.
  • When Gaim assumes a Jimber Arms, his Ride Wear becomes the Jimber Ride Wear (ジンバーライドウェア Jinba Raido Uēa?), which is almost exactly identical to his regular Ride Wear with the exception of Gaim's helmet crest turning silver and mouth-plate turning black.
  • When Gaim assumes Kachidoki Arms, his Ride Wear becomes the Kachidoki Ride Wear (カチドキライドウェア Kachidoki Raido Uēa?, lit. "Triumph Ride Wear").
  • When Gaim assumes Kiwami Arms, his Kachidoki Ride Wear becomes purged to reveal a silver-colored undersuit known as the Kiwami Ride Wear (キワミライドウェア Kiwami Raido Uēa?, lit. "Extreme Ride Wear"). In this form, the Musou Saber and its holster are replaced with a second Lockseed Holder that carries Gaim's three Energy Lockseeds (Lemon Energy, Cherry Energy, and Peach Energy).
  • When Gaim assumes Drive Arms, his Ride Wear receives a minor modification in the form of his head crest being altered to look like the letter "R", which is part of Drive's symbol.

Template:-

Kamen Rider Gaim's standard Arms' ending theme is entitled "E-X-A (Exciting×Attitude)".

Orange Arms
File:KRGa-Gaimorange.png
"Soiya! Orange Arms: Hanamichi on Stage!"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 203 cm.
  • Weight: 105 kg. (231 lbs.)

Original Ability Perimeters[1]:

  • Punching power: 6.7 t.
  • Kicking power: 10.2 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 28 m. (91 ft)
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 5.9 sec.

Orange Arms (オレンジアームズ Orenji Āmuzu?) is Gaim's default orange-based armored Japanese Samurai form. Accessed through the Orange Lockseed, this form's Arms Weapon is the Daidaimaru, while the helmet Gaim wears is the Dai Kabuto (ダイカブト? lit. "Orange Helmet"). This form debuts in episode 1.

This form is Gaim's most balanced form. Because of that, Gaim often uses this form, due to it not suffering from any significantly statistic power up or down.

This Arms has four finishing attacks.

  • Sengoku Driver finishers: Both of these moves are activated via the Squash function.
    • Daidai Ittou (大橙一刀? lit. "Great Orange Sword Strike"): Gaim charges his Daidaimaru with energy before unleashing a series of slashes on the target. This finisher has two variations; a straight slash for a single target and a circle version for multiple targets.
    • Burai Kick (無頼キック Burai Kikku?): Gaim jumps into the air, engulfed by an orange energy passing through a line of orange slices with a high concentration of orange energy focused on his right foot as he strikes the target with a powerful kick. Alternatively, if Gaim performs the Burai Kick from a long distance away, the line of orange slices do not appear.
      • A variation of the Burai Kick is used in the Golden Fruit Cup Soccer Tournament.
  • Musou Saber-related finishers: Orange Charge (オレンジチャージ Orenji Chaji?)
    • Naginata Musou Slicer (ナギナタ無双スライサー Naginata Musō Suraisā?): After Gaim locks the Orange Lockseed into the Daidaimaru Naginata Mode, he fires energy slashes from the Musou Saber end at the enemy, trapping them in an orange sphere. Afterwards, he charges the Daidaimaru end with energy before slashing the enemy with it. The Orange Charge has two variations for close-quarters combat; a multiple slash version for separate targets and a 360 degree turn slash version that forms orange slices on contact with the target.
    • Orange Musou Zan (オレンジ無双斬 Orenji Musō Zan?, lit. "Orange Unrivaled Slash"): After Gaim locks the Orange Lockseed into the Musou Saber, he charges the weapon with orange-shaped energy producing an effect of sparks around it before he slashes the enemy.

When Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Sparking function, he can temporarily convert his Orange Arms' Armor Part into its fruit form, which can be spun and used as a shield to bounce off an enemy's attack.

Pine Arms (パインアームズ Pain Āmuzu?, short for "Pineapple Arms") is Gaim's pineapple-based armored Japanese Samurai form. Accessed through the Pine Lockseed, this form's Arms Weapon is the Pine Iron, while the helmet Gaim wears is the Spine Kabuto (スパインカブト Supain Kabuto?, lit. "Spine Helmet"). This form debuts in episode 2.

In this form, Gaim becomes a little more powerful than Orange Arms. However, only the punching power increases, while the kicking power remains the same. His maximum jump height and running speed also decrease. However, in this form, Gaim achieves more defense than he had in Orange Arms.

This Arms has two finishing attacks.

  • Iron Breaker (アイアンブレイカー Aian Bureikā?): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Squash function, he can execute one of four variations of this attack.
    • Gaim throws/kicks the Pine Iron at the opponent, growing it if he needs it to. Once the Pine Iron is attached to the opponent's head, he strikes the target with a powerful side kick.Template:Storylink
    • Gaim launches the Pine iron to encase the target in a pine aura passes through a line of slices of pine and slams into the target with a powerful side kick. If the Pine Iron is unavailable or is already being used, Gaim just passes through the line of pine slices and kicks the target as usual.Template:Storylink
    • Gaim swings and restrains the opponent with the Pine Iron in close range, then he floats into sky, passes through the line of pine slices and kicks the target.Template:Storylink
    • It can be used without the side kick, causing the Pine Iron to become an explosive projectile instead of attaching to the target's head.Template:Storylink When used in conjunction with Mango Au Lait, the Pine Iron expands on the target's head, mixed with Mango energy and crushes the target.Template:Storylink
  • Pine Musou Zan (パイン無双斬 Pain Musō Zan?, lit. "Pineapple Unrivaled Slash"): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Au Lait function, he restrains the opponent with the Pine Iron and charges the Musou Saber with pineapple-shaped energy before slashing the enemy.

This form debuts in episode 5.

In this form, Gaim has less punching power than even Orange Arms. However, like his other forms, his kicking power is unaffected. What he gains in this form is slightly faster running speed and higher max jumping height when compared to Orange Arms.

This Arms' finisher is the Kunai Burst (クナイバースト Kunai Bāsuto?), which is activated by locking the Ichigo Lockseed into the Musou Saber. Gaim unleashes a giant energy-shaped strawberry that explodes into countless amounts of kunai that rain down on the enemy. This can be done in multiple swings and isn't limited to one swing.

Suika Arms

  • Height: 311 cm.
  • Weight: 523 kg. (1,153 lbs.)

Original Ability Perimeters[4]:

  • Punching power: 33.2 t.
  • Kicking power: 51.8 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 3 m. (9 ft.)
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 9.8 sec.

Suika Arms (スイカアームズ Suika Āmuzu?, lit. "Watermelon Arms") is Gaim's colossal mecha-like watermelon-based armored Japanese Samurai form. Accessed through the Suika Lockseed, this form's Arms Weapon is the Suika Sojinto, while the helmet Gaim wears is the Suika Head (スイカヘッド Suika Heddo?, lit. "Watermelon Head") with an unspecified visor. This form debuts in episode 7.

This form can interchange into three modes.

  • Yoroi Mode (ヨロイモード Yoroi Mōdo?, lit. "Armored Mode"): Suika Arms' warrior mode, which equips Gaim with the Suika Sojinto for combat. This mode debuts in episode 7.
  • Odama Mode (大玉モード Ōdama Mōdo?, lit. "Big Ball Mode"): Suika Arms' watermelon mode, which encases Gaim's entire body to use either for offensive/defensive purposes or as a mode of transportation. This mode debuts in episode 7.
  • Gyro Mode (ジャイロモード Jairo Mōdo?): Suika Arms' flight mode, which allows Gaim to fire seed-like bullets from the fingertips. This mode debuts in episode 11.

Suika Arms is the most massive Arms Change, and it shows by having the most monstrous punching and kicking power once in Yoroi Mode. Consequentially, it also has the worst jumping height in all of Rider history, and any Rider can practically outrun it. Though this is rendered moot thanks to Odama Mode and Gyro Mode. Also, after a utilization, the Suika Lockseed's color becomes grey, indicating that its energy is low and needs time to recharge back to its green color before it can be used again.

This Arms' finisher is the Twin Bladed Slice (双刃割り Sōba-wari?), which is activated via the Squash function on the Sengoku Driver. Gaim first traps the target in a watermelon energy ball, then slashes the "watermelon" all over until it blows up, raining fire and "watermelon flesh" as the target is destroyed.

In this form, Gaim receives more punching power than Orange Arms, though he suffers from a slightly lower jumping height. However, his other stats have not been touched, making it a good substitute for Orange Arms.

This Arms has two Rider Thrust finishing attacks.

  • Gaim Banana Bullet (鎧武(ガイム)バナナブレッド Gaimu Banana Buretto?): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Au Lait function, he releases a spear-shaped beam of energy from the Banaspear to thrust at the enemy.
  • Spear Victory (スピアビクトリー Supia Bikutorī?): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Sparking function, he stabs the Banaspear into the ground, creating multiple banana-shaped projections that barrage the enemy from the ground.

Kabi Orange Arms
File:KamenRiderGaimWhiteArms.png

When Maja takes away all of Gaim's powers and Lockseeds, including his basic Orange Arms, Gaim is transformed into Kabi Orange Arms (カビオレンジアームズ Kabi Orenji Āmuzu?, lit. "Moldy Orange Arms"), a white with blue highlights version of Orange Arms. Accessed through the Kabi Orange Lockseed, this form's Arms Weapon is the Moldy Daidaimaru.

Due to Kouta losing his combat ability, this form is not seen in action, hence its stats are unknown. Though it can be assumed that this form's stats are much weaker than those of his Orange Arms form.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider Gaim: Final Stage. Template:-

Template:-

The Jimber Arms (ジンバーアームズ Jinbā Āmuzu?) are upgraded versions of Gaim's Orange Arms that he can access by replacing his Sengoku Driver's Rider Indicator with the Genesis Driver's Genesis Core and inserting an Energy Lockseed into it. In these forms, Gaim is equipped with the Sonic Arrow and he wears the Jimber Kabuto (ジンバーカブト Jinbā Kabuto?, lit. "Jimber Helmet") helmet. Even though all 4 Jimber Arms share the exact same stats, each form has its own enhanced skill.

In these forms, Gaim's power has increased exponentially, putting him on par with Yggdrasill's New Generation Riders. He attacks with more strength than even Bravo in Durian Arms, and is nearly as fast as Ichigo Arms. However, his maximum jumping height is slightly lower than the jumping height in Orange Arms due to the cumbersome armor, which incidentally resembles a "jinbaori" (陣羽織?), a type of haori specifically made for armored samurai to wear. If Gaim suffers an attack which deals heavy damage, he will revert back to Orange Arms.

Kamen Rider Gaim's Jimber Arms' ending theme is entitled "Toki no Hana".

Jimber Lemon Arms

  • Kicking power: 17.9 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 25 m. (82 ft.)
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 5.6 sec.

Jimber Lemon Arms (ジンバーレモンアームズ Jinbā Remon Āmuzu?) is Gaim's orange/lemon-based armored Japanese Samurai/Archer form, which is accessed through the simultaneous use of the Orange Lockseed and Lemon Energy Lockseed. This form debuts in episode 16.

The enhanced skill of this Jimber Arms is strength, allowing Gaim to receive an extra boost in power. Because of this, it is the most suited for close combat among the Jimber Arms, making this form Gaim's primary Jimber Arms.

This Arms has three finishing attacks.

  • Sengoku Driver finishers
    • Orange & Jimber Lemon Squash: Gaim floats into the air and spins around. Afterwards, he uses the Sonic Arrow, powered by the Orange Lockseed, to create an alternating row of lemon slices and orange slices, which appear in a line in front of the target. Gaim, powered by the Lemon Energy Lockseed, then initiates a more powerful version of Orange Arms' Burai Kick (無頼キック Burai Kikku?) by leaping through the line of slices and passing through each one before he hits the target.
    • Orange & Jimber Lemon Au Lait: Gaim fuels all the energy from the Orange Lockseed and Lemon Energy Lockseed into his body, which is then converted into his Sonic Arrow before he executes a spinning lemon projectile slash on the target.
  • Sengoku Driver + Sonic Arrow finishers
    • Orange Squash + Lemon Energy: Gaim pulls the Sonic Arrow back to its fullest width. All the energy then pools into the arrowhead of the Sonic Arrow, making an alternating row of orange slices and lemon slices appear to form a line in front of the target. Once the charge is done, he lets go, sending a bolt of great power, fueled by the power of both the Orange Lockseed and Lemon Energy Lockseed to pass through the line of slices, slamming into the target. Alternatively, if the target is within a close-quarters radius, the alternating row of slices will not appear.

Kachidoki Arms

―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 215 cm.
  • Weight: 128 kg. (282 lbs.)

Ability Perimeters[9]:

  • Punching power: 16 t.
  • Kicking power: 21.4 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 16 m. (52 ft.)
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 7.2 sec.

Kachidoki Arms (カチドキアームズ Kachidoki Āmuzu?, lit. "Triumph Arms") is Gaim's orange-based completely armored Japanese Shogun form, as well as the evolved form of Orange Arms. Accessed through the Kachidoki Lockseed, this form's Arms Weapon is the DJ Gun, while the helmet Gaim wears is the Kachidoki Kabuto (カチドキカブト? lit. "Triumph Helmet"). Gaim also wields twin orange sashimono marked with his emblem in black called the Kachidoki Bata (カチドキ旗(バタ)? lit. "Triumph Flags"), which are normally attached to his back. This form debuts in episode 23.

In this form, Gaim's power has increased exponentially, making him stronger than even Yggdrasill's New Generation Riders. He attacks with more strength than his Jimber Arms. However, his speed and jumping height are visibly affected due to its bulky armor. As a trade-off, this set of Arms sports impressive defensive power, which is enough for him to withstand the firepower of dozens of Dandeliners with no ill effect. The defensive power of this Arms also allows him to withstand the power of two Suika Arms units attempting to crush him.

The raw power granted through the Kachidoki Lockseed makes up for the reduction in speed as Gaim was able to annihilate an entire army of Dandeliner-equipped Kurokages on top of the Yggdrasil Tower, incapacitate New Generation Rider Marika with one shot from the DJ Gun, and was able to injure Rosyuo, the king of the Over Lords before the latter regenerated from the wounds.

This Arms has two finishing attacks, which are activated when Gaim locks the Kachidoki Lockseed into the DJ Gun.

  • Kachidoki Charge (カチドキチャージ Kachidoki Chāji?, lit. "Triumph Charge"): In Gun Mode, Gaim fires a large ball of energy from the DJ Gun at the enemy.
  • Hinawa Daidai Musou Zan (火縄大橙無双斬 Hinawa Daidai Musō Zan?, lit. "Matchlock Great Orange Unrivaled Slash"): In Taiken Mode, Gaim ignites the DJ Gun's blade in flames before unleashing a powerful slash on the enemy.

In Kamen Rider Battride War II, Gaim can perform the Flags Wild Dance (旗乱舞 Bata Ranbu?) attack, where he slashes the enemy with the Kachidoki Bata. This move also acts as Gaim's finishing attack.

Kachidoki Arms' ending theme is entitled "Rise Up Your Flag".

Appearances: Episodes 23, ToQger Vs. Gaim, Kamen Rider Taisen, 24-26, 28, 30-34, 36-37, Golden Fruits Cup!, 38-39, 41-42, 44-46 Template:-

Kiwami Arms
File:KRGa-Gaimkiwami.png
"Lock Open! Kiwami Arms: Dai, Dai, Dai, Dai, Dai Shogun!"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 215 cm.
  • Weight: 113 kg.

Ability Perimeters[10]:

  • Punching power: 14.5 t.
  • Kicking power: 20.4 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 20 m. (65 ft.)
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 5.8 sec.

Kiwami Arms (極(きわみ)アームズ Kiwami Āmuzu?, lit. "Extreme Arms") is Gaim's fruit basket-based Japanese Shogun evolved and true form of Kachidoki Arms, as well as his ultimate form. Accessed through the simultaneous use of the Kachidoki Lockseed and Kiwami Lockseed via the Senyo Joint, which replaces his Sengoku Driver's Rider Indicator during the activation of the Kiwami Lockseed. This form debuts in episode 32.

Unified by all of the basic and Energy Armor Parts, Gaim purges both his Kachidoki Arms' Armor Part and Ride Wear suit to create a silver-white armor suit that bears the Kiwami Kabuto (キワミカブト? lit. "Extreme Helmet") helmet and a long cape, which has been shown to be removable for various uses (i:e bullfighting). Both sides of Gaim's belt are replaced with Lockseed Holders carrying six of his base Lockseeds, with the original right-sided holder carrying his first three normal Lockseeds (Orange, Pine, and Ichigo), while a new holder on his left side replaces the Musou Saber Holster by carrying his three confiscated Energy Lockseeds (Lemon Energy, Cherry Energy, and Peach Energy).

In this form, Gaim has lost some of his physical might from Kachidoki Arms, but is far more flexible than Kachidoki Arms and still performs better compared to a Jimber Arms. Also, he gains more speed compared to Kachidoki Arms. To make up for the slightly weaker stats, Gaim receives the ability to summon and utilize either any of the thirteen basic Arms Weapons, any of the three weapons with an attachment slot for the Lockseeds, or the Kagematsu Shin simply by accessing their power through the Kiwami Lockseed, thus the addition of a second Lockseed Holder for Gaim's Energy Lockseeds.

In order to access his summoning ability, Gaim must turn the Kiwami Lockseed once, which causes the Sengoku Driver to announce the name of said weapon. As an added bonus, he is capable of doing this multiple times to summon different weapons, simultaneously if necessary, which can also allow him to fire off the summoned weapons as projectiles against the enemy. Gaim has also been shown to maintain summoned weapons from a different Arms if he transforms directly into Kiwami Arms. In addition, he is also able to bring forth a different weapon in place of his current weapon without turning the Kiwami Lockseed.

The attack power of any weapon summoned by this ability, as well as the force of its finishing attack, is far superior than when it is normally wielded by an ordinary Armored Rider or New Generation Rider, allowing Gaim to inflict damage upon an Enhanced Over Lord Inves when any of them are unable to. It was later revealed that using the Kiwami Lockseed was stripping Kouta of his humanity by slowly transforming him into an Over Lord, eventually granting him additional powers, such as manipulation of Helheim's vines and the ability to regenerate damaged Lockseeds. Once Kouta became the Man of the Beginning after eating the Golden Fruit, he is able to transform directly into Kiwami Arms with a simple call of "Henshin".

The Kiwami Lockseed is also directly tied with Kouta's Overlord form. If in any case the Kouta dies, the simple activation of the Lockseed by someone else (except Megahex) will revive him.

This Arms has four finishing attacks.

  • Sengoku Driver finishers
    • Burai Kick (無頼キック Burai Kikku?): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Squash function, he leaps into the air in a somersault and flies in with pure energy coating his foot before making contact with the enemy.
    • Spear Victory (スピアビクトリー Supia Bikutorī?): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Squash function, he can execute one of two variations of this attack.
      • Gaim stabs the Banaspear into the ground, causing multiple banana-shaped projections to encase the enemy.Template:Storylink
      • Like Baron's Banana Squash, Gaim releases a spear-shaped beam of energy from the Banaspear to thrust at the enemy.Template:Storylink
    • Hinawa Daidai Musou Zan (火縄大橙無双斬 Hinawa Daidai Musō Zan?, lit. "Matchlock Great Orange Unrivaled Slash"): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Au Lait function, he charges the DJ Gun in Taiken Mode with energy surrounded by image projections of fruits before slashing down the target. The fruit image projections scatter on impact.
  • Attachment slot weapon finishers
    • Fruits Basket Charge (フルーツバスケットチャージ Furūtsu Basuketto Chāji?): After Gaim locks a normal Lockseed into the DJ Gun, he fires a powerful blast surrounded by a projection of multiple fruits at the enemy, which envelopes and soon destroys the target.

Kiwami Arms' ending theme, entitled "Ranbu Escalation", also doubles as the ending theme for Kamen Rider Baron's Lemon Energy Arms.

1 Arms (1号アームズ Ichigō Āmuzu?) is a Legend Rider Arms based on Kamen Rider 1. Accessed through the Showa Rider Lockseed channeling the 1 Lockseed, this form has no Arms Weapon.

Before the Rider 1 Armor Part opens up to form the armor, its "mouth" can be used to bite enemies, as seen in Gaim's battle with Kamen Rider Fifteen. Despite having no weapons, this Arms is shown to be more powerful than Kachidoki Arms in that Gaim can defeat Fifteen Gaim Arms in this form, while Gaim Kachidoki Arms lost against Fifteen Gaim Arms.

This Arms' finisher is the Rider Kick (ライダーキック Raidā Kikku?), which is activated via the Squash function on the Sengoku Driver. Gaim jumps up into the air, and does the very same sort of Rider Kick that Kamen Rider 1 does, with holographic versions of Gaim in Orange Arms and Rider 1 appearing by his side, in a vein similar to Kamen Rider Fourze Fusion States' Rider Fusion Drill Kick.

An apparent side effect of the Legend Rider Lockseeds is channeling the represented Rider's personality, with Kouta shouting "Toh!" while performing the Rider Kick in midair.

Unlike other Legend Rider Arms, while his helmet is modified to resemble that of the represented Rider, he does not sport armor in the form of Rider 1's chest. Instead, a large Rider 1 face is located on his chest. This design seems to have come from Shotaro Ishinomori's concept art of Kamen Rider Super-1, as well as the fact that the only difference between Riders 1 and 2 are the color of their gloves & boots, and, on occasion, their helmets.

This form is exclusive to Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai. Template:-

However, this form is completely vulnerable to any incoming attacks when shot at directly in the suit rather than at the Arms that is descending down on the Rider.

List of AppearancesEdit

Behind the ScenesEdit

PortrayalEdit

Kouta Kazuraba is portrayed by Gaku Sano (佐野 岳 Sano Gaku?), 2011 Junon Super Boy Contest Grand Prix winner. Sano said that he grew up wishing he could be the character from Kamen Rider Kuuga, and now that he will portray Kamen Rider Gaim which he hopes that he will inspire a new generation of boys.[12][13]

As Kamen Rider Gaim, his suit actor is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji?), who has been the suit actor for the majority of leading Heisei Kamen Riders (except Kuuga and Hibiki).[14] In Movie War Full Throttle, his suit actor was Eitoku (永徳?).

Rider No.Edit

As the leading Rider protagonist of Kamen Rider Gaim, Kouta Kazuraba (Kamen Rider Gaim) is labeled Kamen Rider #30 (仮面ライダー30号 Kamen Raidā Sanjūgō?) and Heisei Rider #15 (平成ライダー15号 Heisei Raidā Jūgogō?). Template:Storylink

Popular CultureEdit

In the live action of Hell Teacher Nube (地獄先生 ぬーべー Jigoku Sensei Nube?), a student named Shuichi Shirato claims that they ate the Fruit of Wisdom. Coincidentally, Shirato is played by Gaku Sano, who also played Kouta.[15]

NotesEdit

  • Kouta is the first primary Rider since Tsukasa Kadoya who does not make his debut as a cameo appearance in the Summer Movie of his predecessor, instead debuting in the final episodes of that series.
    • He is also the first primary Rider since Wataru Kurenai who does not meet his successor before the end of his own series at any point.
  • As the fifteenth leading Heisei Rider, the Heisei era now equals the Showa era in main Riders, as Kamen Rider J is officially considered the 15th Showa-Era Kamen Rider. Thus, Gaim is also the 30th main Rider overall.
File:Sp018 au.jpg
  • At the back of Kouta's Team Gaim jacket has a picture which consists of a samurai that resembles Kamen Rider Gaim's Orange Arms. Considering the half moon crest and one missing eye, the samurai can be proved to be famed warrior and tactician Template:W.
    • This also means that Kamen Rider Gaim is also based on Date Masamune, with the moon crest and a singular optics, unlike the other Riders within the show, who have two optics.
    • Gaim's Kiwami Arms was inspired by the armor of Template:W, with the Kiwami Kabuto borrowing design choices from Template:W while keeping true to Gaim's Date Masamune design.
  • Kouta's first transformation occurs without him saying "transform" first, similar to Yusuke Godai when he willingly transformed into Kuuga Growing Form for the first time. Funny enough, when Kouta transforms and the Orange falls onto his head, the suit formed and the show immediately went into its commercial break, imitating the "pre-default" form Kuuga has.
  • Kouta is the first Neo-Heisei Kamen Rider to reveal his transformation to someone close to him; in this case, his sister.
  • Kouta's birthday is revealed to be January 30. Like Kaito, he is 20 years old. With a text message placing the first episode as having taken place on its airdate, October 6th 2013, Kouta's birth year would be 1993.
    • In real life, Kouta's actor, Gaku Sano, was born on April 3rd, 1992.
    • It is also known that Kouta's actor is 15 cm shorter than Ryoma Takeuchi, Shinnosuke Tomari's actor. This differences is highlighted and followed by their Rider forms in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle, during the scene where both of them inside a realm created by Mai, but once they exited the realm, their Rider form's heights are almost the same, probably due to the directors wanting the heights of their characters (as well as other main Riders) to be around the same.
  • Gaim's Kachidoki Arms' battle catchphrase "Iza Shutsujin!" is similar to the battle catchphrase "Iza Mairu!" from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, as both catchphrases are references to battle cries used by the ancient Feudal samurai to lead their armies to the battlefield.
  • Gaim Yami's Black Jimber Arms is similar to previous dark Kamen Riders: specifically, Kamen Riders Ryuga and Dark Kabuto, blacked out versions of the main Rider. Ironically, this means Kouta is the first primary Rider to be his own evil Rider counterpart.
  • Kouta is the first Neo-Heisei Kamen Rider whose Final Form does not have its own exclusive weapon. Even though Kiwami Arms can use pretty much all of the Arms Weapons, it does not possess its own personal Arms Weapon.
  • Kiwami Arms is similar to Kamen Rider Kiva's Emperor Form: Both are Final Forms based on figures of royalty (the former a shogun, which is a military version of royalty, and the latter a vampire king) and both forms use weapons from all previous forms. Unlike Kiva however, Kiwami Arms has no unique special weapon of its own (apart from the toy-only DJ Sojinto), while Emperor Form had the Zanvat Sword.
  • Kiwami Arms' ability to summon weapons from thin air and launch them seemingly via telekinesis resembles the Gate of Babylon power possessed by Gilgamesh, a character from the visual novel Fate/stay night by Kinoko Nasu. Kamen Rider Gaim's head writer Gen Urobuchi is good friends with Nasu and has written for the Fate series, in particular authoring the prequel novel, Fate/Zero.
  • Kouta's costume as the Man of the Beginning contains recycled parts from Gaim's Kiwami Arms, as well as Kurokage's Matsubokkuri Arms chest piece.
  • Kouta can be considered as the second primary rider after Tsukasa Kadoya to imitate the abilities of previous primary riders in some form. However, Gaim performs this feat in crossover movies only, while Decade transforming into the past Riders is a regular thing for him.
  • As the Man of The Beginning, Kouta may well be the strongest Rider in the franchise in terms of abilities due to his God-like powers which seemingly includes reality warping.
  • He is the first primary Heisei Rider to be dubbed a Kamen Rider by an opponent Monster, although Kamen Rider Beast did indirectly refer to him as one beforehand.
  • He is the only main Armored Rider to use more than one Rider Lockseed in the Movie War films (Baron, Ryugen, and Zangetsu have only used one each). The Riders Gaim has used are Wizard and Drive. Incidentally, both Arms are red, have some silver accents, wield a sword-type weapon, and are the Riders that came before and after him.
  • In the Arms Change line, for some reason, the Door-Ju is included in ACSP: Kamen Rider Gaim Drive Arms, even though Kouta didn't use it in the movie.
  • Keeping with the fact that both Kamen Rider Gaim and Puella Magi Madoka Magica shares the same writer, Kouta's equivalent in the anime is Madoka Kamane. As shown, they are the main characters that dislike bloodsheds and believing that those with greater power shall use it to help the weak. In the end, they choose the path to become omnipotent beings (Kouta as a God-like figure and Madoka as a concept of her new world) to save more lives.
  • Kouta regenerating from the Kiwami Lockseed is almost similar Sho Fukamachi (Guyver I) regenerate from his Control Metal.
