!Protagonists
[[folder:Haruto Soma/Kamen Rider Wizard]]
->Live Actor: Shunya Shiraishi/Kaito Nakashima (Child)
->Suit Actor: Seiji Takaiwa

A survivor of the dark magical ritual, he was able to subdue his emerging Phantom by holding onto hope. This gave him the ability to use magic through the equipment granted to him by the wizard in white.

!!!Tropes:

* AllYourPowersCombined: All Dragon
* ArmorOfInvincibility: What Infinity Style is described as in Character Material. Oddly enough, this is included in the show itself.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBiker: Naturally.
** BadassLongcoat: Wears one in human form and is part of Wizard's suit. It can also ''expand'' as a shield.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Haruto is a NiceGuy, yes, but he can be downright brutal in some fights, especially concerning Phoenix[[spoiler: and later [[SerialKiller Sora]]/[[PsychopathicManChild Gremlin]]]]. [[spoiler:Comes to its conclusion when he sends Phoenix to a FateWorseThanDeath.]]
* BigEater: Can down a box of donuts in one sitting. He explains in Episode 4 that his appetite is partly driven by his need of energy from a high-calorie intake to replenish the mana he's constantly burning while using his magical powers, [[spoiler:such as keeping Koyomi alive]].
* BondOneLiner: He likes to drop these occasionally. [[spoiler: After Phoenix pisses him off by almost killing Rinko, he drops a really good one: "There will be no finale for you.", which he says just as he Rider Kicks Phoenix to the sun.]]
* CharacterTic: Throughout the series, he has been making a sigh of relief that sounds like ''Phii'', ''Fwee'', or ''Fin...'', depending on the listener.
* ChromeChampion: His suit is ''already'' covered in gemstones, but [[SuperMode Infinity Style]] takes the cake by being composed of sparkling silver and glittering diamonds.
* CloseRangeCombatant: In Infinity Style, where he only uses the Axcalibur as the sole weapon of choice.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Alongside with nearly becoming a Phantom in a ritual and being the cause of his friend's game-breaking injury, he had a dark and troubled past as a child. [[spoiler: While still a child, his parents died in a car crash that left him as the only survivor.]] It's so troubled that it becomes Haruto's Underworld... [[spoiler:at least until he accepted Koyomi's death. After that, his Underworld becomes a treasure trove of all the memories he had with her]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: His costume and wardrobe are primarily black, but Haruto is by no means a bad person.
* DeadpanSnarker: He just loves firing off one-liners before a fight. He saves the snark for his Phantom opponents and Nitoh.
* {{Determinator}}: In that, he will not let someone become a phantom as long as he has a breath.
* [[spoiler: TheDragon: Overlaps with UnwittingPawn. While Fueki has many Dragons, Haruto could be considered his main and most powerful one acting as his primary pawn, asset, and enforcer of his will carrying out the most important parts of his plans while being none the wiser.]]
* DullSurprise: Shunya Shiraishi is rather bad at emoting and lets leave it at that.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler: The Hope Ring is almost a subversion, since by the time he gets it Gremlin is dying anyway. He only uses it for one final [[DivingKick Rider Kick]], and then decides to put the ring in a safe place and never use it again.]]
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: Long story short, he's a combination of [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]], [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]], and [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Mami Tomoe]].
* ExtremityExtremist: Favors his legs in combat. He presumably avoids punching so as not to bust up his rings.
* FailureKnight: His giving people hope mentality comes from - in his eyes - his failure to [[spoiler:save his parents]] and is extremely afraid of failing anyone.
* {{Familiar}}: The Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken, and Golem [=PlaMonsters=].
* FlashStep: Scanning the Infinity Ring while already in Infinity Style allows him to do this.
* FreudianExcuse: The reason behind him being so dead-set on "restoring hope" to everyone? [[spoiler:His parents' dying words were that he was their last hope. He took it to heart.]]
* GenreSavvy: Has shades of this, such as being able to quickly deduce that [[spoiler:Shunpei's fire 'magic']] is caused by the Hellhound instead of discounting the idea because Hellhound was seemingly destroyed in their fight, as well as quickly deducing Hellhound's plan is to [[spoiler:build Shunpei up then crush him]]. He's been able to quickly piece together information to discover the plan of the Phantom or what's needed to save the Gate's hope.
* GrasptheSun: Did that while being in the process of phantomication himself, where he struggled resisting forced despair.
* TheGunslinger: Is shown to be a Trick Shot in Flame Style and a Woo while using Hurricane Style.
* TheHero
* HeroicBSOD: Spends a majority of episode 9 in one, and again in #23, almost to the point where he considered a TenMinuteRetirement.
* HeroicHost: His powers come from Dragon, who is one of the very MonstersOfTheWeek he fights.
* HeroicWillpower: Managed to survive the ritual by sheer force of will in refusing to give up hope.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Has a noticeable lack of self-esteem, from the guilt he has towards [[spoiler:his parents' death and then his teammate's injury that halted his prospect of becoming a pro-football player]], and how he doesn't see himself to have any other role than being Wizard, who has no hope of his own other than restore others'.
* HopeBringer: Serves this role to Gates who have been driven close to the DespairEventHorizon, having to pull them back and defeat the Phantom rampaging in their soul.
* HurtingHero: Has SurvivorGuilt from the ritual that created the Phantoms as well as [[spoiler:from being the sole survivor of the crash that killed his parents]] and its clear he's hurting a great deal from it. However, he also uses this as his main motivation and seems to be coping with it well.
* KungFuWizard
* LightIsGood: In Infinity Style.
* MagicKnight: Seems to be the motif of Infinity Style, both in functionality and design.
* MartyrWithoutACause: Best shown when he's willing to let himself die to save Koyomi's life when the White Wizard says so. [[spoiler: He changes his mind when he learns that he's not the sacrifice, all of Tokyo is.]]
* MeteorMove: Part of his fighting style in Hurricane Style is to get the opponent in the air, then mercilessly assault them from all sides as they fall.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: The Dragon Styles [[note]]Flame Dragon, Water Dragon, Hurricane Dragon, and Land Dragon.[[/note]] and All Dragon.
* MomentOfWeakness: In Episode 45 he was willing to let his favorite teacher fall into despair in order to get a lead on the White Wizard and save Koyomi. Luckily, Shunpei put a stop to that.
* MultiformBalance: Known as "Styles".
** JackOfAllStats: Flame
** SquishyWizard: Water [[note]]It does have a bit of a speed boost over Flame Style, but is otherwise weaker and the form mainly relies on special tricks like the [[ElementalShapeshifter Liquid Ring]].[[/note]]
** FragileSpeedster: Hurricane
** MightyGlacier: Land
** GlassCannon: The Dragon Styles. [[note]]While they are powerful and are capable of dishing out some serious damage, they can't take it or tank their own attacks in return.[[/note]]
** LightningBruiser: All Dragon/Special Rush
** SuperMode: Infinity
** FightingClown: Beast Mantle [[note]]Wizard's Flame Dragon form with the [[{{Flight}} Falco Mantle]] on his right shoulder and the [[ALoadOfBull Buffa Mantle]] on his left shoulder.[[/note]]
** SerialEscalation: Infinity Dragon (Gold)
* MundaneUtility: Uses his magic, especially the Connect Ring, for some mundane things, like a portal so he can retrieve his doughnuts from where he left them earlier.
* NiceGuy: Maybe not to the extremes of [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Eiji]] or [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Gentaro]], but he's still a stand-up guy and takes his duties to save Gates seriously. He's someone you can count on.
** Best illustrated when Mayu tells him that [[spoiler: the White Wizard asked her to steal the Infinity Ring. He actually ''gives'' it to her.]]
* OhCrap: Has this reaction when he realizes Sora is [[spoiler: a SerialKiller]].[[spoiler: This is added with UnstoppableRage when he fights him later.]]
* PaletteSwap: Special Rush is an-all red version of All Dragon.
* [[RealMenWearPink Real Men Wear Tight Frilly Red Pants]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Kosuke's red.
* RingOfPower: This year's collectible trinket. Even Wizard's helmet is designed to look like a ring that wraps around his head. He seems to have two types of rings:
** '''Transformation''': Worn on his left hand, these allow Wizard to assume his "Style" forms.
*** The ''[[PlayingWithFire Flame Ring]]'' allows him to transform into Flame Style.
*** The ''[[MakingASplash Water Ring]]'' enables the Water Style.
*** The ''[[BlowYouAway Hurricane Ring]]'' gives him the power of Hurricane Style.
*** The ''[[DishingOutDirt Land Ring]]'' transforms his form into Land Style.
*** The ''[[MidSeasonUpgrade Dragon Rings]]'': A series of Transformation Rings that are essentially stronger versions of Haruto's normal Style Rings, using the Wizardragon's power to enhance them.
*** The ''[[SuperMode Infinity Ring]]'': Made from Haruto's [[SwissArmyTears tears]], this ring elevates him to Infinity Style, his strongest form. Also allows Dragon to change into the [=AxCalibur=].
** '''Magic''': Worn on his right hand, these allow Wizard to cast magic spells.
*** ''Driver On'': Calls upon the [[TransformationTrinket WizarDriver]].
*** ''[[SummonMagic Dragorise Ring]]'': Summons the [=WizarDragon=] in an Underworld.
*** ''Connect Ring'': Provides a link between two locations or people, practically being used by Wizard as a HyperspaceArsenal.
*** ''Kick Strike Ring'': Enables Wizard to do a kick-based FinishingMove empowered by the element of his current Style.
*** ''Engage Ring'': Allows Wizard to access other peoples' Underworlds. Different from other rings in that the other person has to be the one wearing it, not Wizard.
*** The ''Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken and Golem Rings'' summon (as model kits!) and then power up the [[RobotBuddy PlaMonsters]] Red Garuda, Blue Unicorn, Yellow Kraken and Violet Golem.
*** ''[[BarrierWarrior Defend Ring]]'': Allows Wizard to create a strong defensive barrier. The form of said barrier depends on Wizard's current Style;
**** in Land Style the ring forms a stone wall that not only can block enemy attacks, but also entomb them.
**** In Water Style the ring forms one of Wizard's magic sigils surrounded by water, which can also be slammed into enemies.
**** In Flame Style the ring envelops Wizard in flames, which can be used to clear debris.
*** ''[[IncredibleShrinkingMan Small Ring]]'': Shrinks the user down to a tiny size.
*** ''[[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Big Ring]]'': Expands a body part to enormous size.... [[PowerPerversionPotential oh boy]], or to enlarge the [=WizarSwordGun=] in it's sword form.
*** ''[[MesACrowd Copy Ring]]'': Allows Kamen Rider Wizard to create copies of [[DoppelgangerAttack himself in combat]], or [[DualWielding duplicate the WizarSwordGun]].
*** ''[[CountingSheep Sleep Ring]]'': Puts the wearer to sleep.
*** ''[[LightEmUp Light Ring]]'': Illuminates the area with bright light.
*** ''[[RubberMan Extend Ring]]'': Allows Wizard to elongate a part of his body... [[PowerPerversionPotential oh my]].
*** ''[[ElementalShapeshifter Liquid Ring]]'': Used only in Water Style, it allows Wizard to become liquid, akin to [[Series/KamenRiderBlackRX Black RX's BioRider form]] or [[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO ShaUTa Combo]].
*** ''Bind Ring'': Five circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims.
*** ''Please Ring'': Transfers magical energy from Wizard to the wearer. [[spoiler: Particularly, Koyomi as she needs mana to live.]]
*** ''[[FastTunnelling Drill Ring]]'': Used in Land Style, it allows Wizard to spin at high speeds and tunnel through the ground. It can also be used to enhance the Kick Strike into a SpinAttack.
*** ''[[{{Fartillery}} Smell Ring]]'': Makes the wearer emit a disgusting odor.
*** ''[[AnatomyArsenal Special Ring]]'': While in a Dragon Style, it summons a part of [=WizarDragon=]'s body as armor - a ChestBlaster for Flame Dragon, [[PowerGivesYouWings a pair of wings]] for Hurricane Dragon, a TailSlap for Water Dragon or WolverineClaws for Land Dragon. For Flame Dragon, doubles as the Finisher Ring.
*** ''[[AnIcePerson Blizzard Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Water Dragon Style.
*** ''[[ShockAndAwe Thunder Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Hurricane Dragon Style.
*** ''[[GravityMaster Gravity Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Land Dragon Style.
*** [[spoiler:''[[ChristmasMiracle Merry Christmas Ring]]'':]]: A one time use ring that [[spoiler: restores destroyed gifts]].
*** ''[[ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction Dress Up Ring]]'': Changes Haruto's outfit as a handy disguise.
*** ''Excite Ring'': Make Wizard much more muscular.
*** ''Fall Ring'': Creates a hole directly below the user. Useful for quick escapes.
*** [[spoiler:Hope Ring]]: [[spoiler:A ring created from the PhilosophersStone and Haruto's hope. Allows Wizard to perform a powered up version of his Rider Kick summoning energy projections of Dragon representing Fire, Land, Hurricane, Water, and Infinity to strike the opponent.]]
*** ''Finish Strike Ring'': Used during the events of Wizard in Magic Land, this equips Infinity Style with all of Dragon's parts save for the head, ''that'' being used during the finisher.
** Wizard can also use Beast's rings for various effects. It's unclear if this trend will continue however:
*** ''Dolphi Ring'': Allows the user to melt into liquid and hide/strike from all directions. Furthermore, the user does not need to be transformed first in order to use the spell.
*** ''Falco Ring'': The user molts into a mass of feathers upon any physical contact, allowing them to be unhurt from strikes. Like Dolphi, it can be used on a non-transformed individual. Used on Nitoh while he lacked the Beast Driver.
* RunningGag: He will never be able to fully enjoy a doughnut onscreen, because something bad ALWAYS happens to him when he tries to eat one. [[spoiler: Like his parents dying in a car crash.]]
* SarcasmMode: Him complimenting Nitoh's downright stupid myna bird plan in Episode 37 was 100% pure sarcasm.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: To an extent, when he accidently fell in a shopping cart while fighting the Bogy Phantom.
** His voice also temporary broke when he exclaimed about an advertisement beforehand.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He wants nothing to do with Shunpei and Rinko's spat in Episode 36.
* SmugSuper: Downplayed, but it's there. He has the bad habit of toying with Lesser Phantoms while showing off his magic in the most dramatic way possible instead of just killing his opponent. A lot of conflict could be avoided if he just got down to business.
* TheStoic: Haruto isn't as extreme an example as some, but he doesn't show much emotion.
** NotSoStoic: There are a few instances where Haruto really flips his shit. [[spoiler: Like when Phoenix first attacked in #8. Their first fight was the first time Haruto seemed panicked and worried he might lose.]]
* SuperDickery: [[spoiler:Talking about saving Koyomi implied that he is willing to do the Sabbath ritual like Fueki. In reality, he was referring to saving her soul by letting her rest in peace. This is though retrieving the Philosopher's Stone and hiding it away.]]
* SuperWristGadget: The Drago Timer, a device created exclusively for the Dragon Styles. Always used in Flame Dragon.
** MesACrowd: Summons clones of Wizard's 3 other Dragon Styles. Unlike the Copy Ring, the Dragon Style clones can act on their own.
** FinishingMove: ''Dragon Four-Mation'' [[note]]When the thumb-like attachment is pressed while all 4 Dragon Styles are together, they are equipped with their respective [=WizarDragon=] part and unleash their special attacks.[[/note]]
** AllYourPowersCombined: By scanning the Drago Timer on the [=WizarDriver=], Wizard can unite the Dragon Styles into All Dragon.
* SurvivorGuilt: Has signs of this from being one of the only survivors of the ritual that created the Phantoms and [[spoiler:surviving the crash that killed his family.]] While he doesn't say it was all his fault, it clearly effected him deeply.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Considers Phoenix [[spoiler:beating Rinko nearly to death just for fun]] this.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Plain sugar donuts. Episode 52 also shows his personal favorites are from the Donut Shop Hungry truck, as he's eating a donut and comments that it's not the same as from Hungry.
* TranquilFury: In #23 when [[BewareTheNiceOnes Phoenix pushes him too far]]. He clearly is furious with Phoenix for [[spoiler:what he did to Rinko]], but Haruto keeps a calm tone the entire time (even for [[TheStoic him]]), even when [[spoiler:condemning Phoenix to a FateWorseThanDeath and the BondOneLiner that follows.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Sort of. [[spoiler: The White Wizard seeing him overcoming his Inner Phantom inspired his Plan B thus starting the plot of the show.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Since Day One he's been unknowingly been one of Fueki's many Dragons.]]
* [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: At the end of the series, he searches for a place to leave Koyomi's ring. During ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'', he admits that he kept wandering because he couldn't find a place. Ultimately, he decides to leave Koyomi's ring [[YourMindMakesItReal in his memories.]]]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Two {{Swiss Army Weapon}}s.
** Standard and Dragon Styles: Wizar[[CoolSword Sword]][[CoolGuns Gun]]
*** {{BFS}}: When using the Big Ring on the weapon in Sword Mode.
*** DualWielding: When using the Copy Ring on the weapon in Sword Mode.
*** GunsAkimbo: When using the Copy Ring on the weapon in Gun Mode.
*** ReverseGrip: In both Hurricane forms.
*** SwordAndGun: One time in #14 via the Copy Ring.
** Infinity Style: [[AnAxeToGrind Ax]][[{{BFS}} Calibur]]
* WhamLine: Gave this to Phoenix after the latter proudly proclaim that he can never be fully killed.
--> [[spoiler:"There will be no finale for you."]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Would not respect or protect Sora's wishes to become a human being.
-->Haruto: You have lost your human soul long ago. You don't count.
* WorldsBestWarrior: In ''Super Hero Taisen Z'', Sharivan describes him as the most powerful magic-user on Earth.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Uses submission moves in #4.
** He uses even more when Land Style appears in Episode 6.

[[folder:Dragon Phantom/[=WizarDragon=]]]
->Voice Actor: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo
->Live Actor: Shunya Shiraishi

Haruto's inner phantom, and the source of his powers.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* [[spoiler:CameBackStrong: After being killed by Legion and revived, he gains the power to transform into the Axcalibur and give Haruto access to [[SuperMode Infinity Style]].]]
* [[spoiler: CharacterDevelopment: Until #31, Dragon acted like your typical Phantom: destructive and obsessed with bringing his Gate to despair. After Haruto's strong heart revived him, though, he has decided to become Haruto's "hope" and allows him to access Infinity Style.]]
* CombiningMecha: With Wizard's [[CoolBike Machine Winger]] called Winger [=WizarDragon=].
** TransformingMecha: Into a [[GiantFootOfStomping giant foot]] called Strike Phase as part of a finisher.
* EnemyWithin
* {{Expy}}: A hybrid of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} the Kyubi]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Hollow Ichigo]].
* FinishingMove: ''Strike End'' [[note]]After Wizard scans the Kick Strike Ring, Winger [=WizarDragon=] converts into its Strike Phase mode. Afterwards, a projection of Wizard pushes the dragon foot coated in fire towards the enemy.[[/note]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: While he never exactly had the chance to be a Heel, he was always the TokenEvilTeammate. But by #30, Haruto rubbed off on him and ultimately causes him to perform a HeroicSacrifice to protect Beast and Chimera. He completes his turn in #31 upon being brought BackFromTheDead by Haruto's hope, stating that now he is Haruto's hope.]]
* HopeBringer: [[spoiler:After being reborn by Haruto's sheer force of will, he declares he will become Haruto's hope through the Infinity Style and [=AxCalibur=].]]
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Subverted at first, as when summoned, Haruto has to control him to fight other phantoms.
* InTheBack: Dragon might be a hope bringer, but he has no qualms trying to take over Haruto when given the chance, as shown in the movie.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Surprisingly the Wizardragon does show slight signs of this, despite being a hostile Phantom inside Haruto. He was mildly surprised when Haruto willingly called him his hope.
** PragmaticVillainy: But, Dragon still teases Haruto about how he will end up giving up to despair and laughs at the fact Haruto calls him the opposite of it. He allows him to borrow his powers mostly because if Haruto dies without losing hope, he will die with him. Better shown in the movie, despite the fact Dragon declared he will be Haruto's hope.
** HeroicSacrifice: What Dragon does in #30. Whether that's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold or PragmaticVillainy is up for debate.
*** [[spoiler:Considering in #31, when he's brought BackFromTheDead, ''he'' tells Haruto that he's going to be his hope, so it seems he really has changed.]]
* MeaningfulEcho: [[spoiler:Earlier, Haruto told him that he was his hope. After being brought BackFromTheDead after being destroyed by Legion, it's Dragon who says that he is Haruto's hope.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: It's hard to tell whether the [=WizarDragon=] is biological, mechanical, or spiritual. It could be all of them.
* OxymoronicBeing: As a phantom, he was born from Haruto's despair, yet he calls him his hope.
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Go on, ''guess''.
* TokenEvilTeammate
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Koyomi [[spoiler:Fueki]]]]
->Live Actress: Makoto Okunaka

A mysterious young girl who was given to Haruto by the White Wizard. She has the supernatural ability to discern Phantoms through their human disguises. According to the White Wizard, she was a victim that died in the same Sabbath ritual that Haruto suffered through; though her body somehow stayed intact and can be kept reanimated by a wizard's mana.

[[spoiler:He's lying, partially. She ''is'' a reanimated corpse, but she died of natural causes. Her father Fueki turned to magic and became the White Wizard to try and save her, keeping her "alive" with the PhilosophersStone and performing the Sabbath in an attempt to resurrect her completely.]]

!!!Tropes:
* AFriendInNeed: No matter what, Koyomi will always be there for Haruto to help lift him up out of his darkest hour.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: According to pre-release material, she doesn't know whether she is a human survivor of the ritual, or a Phantom in human form. Turns out she's human, but not exactly a "survivor"...
* BerserkButton: A surefire way to make Koyomi angry is to insult Haruto. Do ''not'' imply he is trying anything but his hardest around her.
* CrystalBall: Uses one to show her where Haruto is.
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong: Sort of. The real Koyomi died sometime ago, and Fueki describes the one we know as a puppet that houses the Philosopher's Stone.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}
* [[spoiler:DiedInYourArmsTonight]]
** [[spoiler: DisappearsIntoLight]]
* TheEeyore
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Mezool]], albeit a heroic version.
** [[spoiler:Also of [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Yui Kanzaki]], post-#48]].
* EvilLaugh: Of a witch vibe. Even though she only did it to scare Shunpei in episode 32.
* FortuneTeller
* HeroicVow: In Episode 42 she swears that she will live her life to its fullest as a human being no matter what she really is.
* IllGirl: [[spoiler:Since her childhood.]]
* ItIsDehumanizing: [[{{Jerkass}} Sora]]/[[TheSociopath Gremlin]] constantly calls her a 'doll' in an extremely demeaning fashion.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Gremlin kills her by forcefully removing the Philosopher's Stone that was keeping her alive and unlike [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Kengo]], she wasn't revived in the final episode. Then again, considering how trying to revive her caused the mess in the first place and how she told her own father that he shouldn't have bothered with bringing her to life, it could be for the best.]]
** [[spoiler:With Haruto taking the Philosopher's Stone out of Gremlin, there may still be hope. Haruto made brief contact with Koyomi before the Philosopher's Stone became the Hope Ring. Though Haruto decides not to use it again after destroying Gremlin, he keeps it in a safe place, so there's still a possibility like with [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Ankh's broken Taka Medal]].]]
* [[spoiler:MacGuffinGirl: She's the Philosopher's Stone that everyone in the know wants.]]
* MeaningfulName: Means "calendar", relating to her fortune-telling ability.
* MissingMom: It's mentioned that her mother passed away some time ago.
* MissionControl: For Haruto. She controls the [=PlaMonsters=] and searches for Phantoms with her crystal ball while Haruto gumshoes.
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler: For Fueki. More precisely, Fueki abandoned any morals after she died in order to bring her back to life.]]
* MysteriousWaif
* OnlyOneName: Because that's all she can remember. Turns out her last name is [[spoiler:Fueki; she's the daughter of the White Wizard.]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: A rare benevolent Type V.
* OutOfFocus: Her actress is an idol with a busy schedule, so she doesn't get as much screentime as her character absolutely should.
* StepfordSmiler: Becomes this trope as [[spoiler:she begins to mysteriously fall apart.]]
* [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shigeru Wajima]]
->Live Actor: Hisahiro Ogura

A keen archaeologist and gemcutter. He creates the rings that Kamen Rider Wizard uses in his magic, carving the gems and then setting them in the rings.

!! Tropes:
* TheAtoner: Since some of his stuff was used in the ritual, he houses Haruto and Koyomi and builds magic tools for them as penance.
* BlackBox: During episode 3, he claims to just follow his instincts, carving the gems and setting them into rings, without knowing what gives them power or what spell they will cast once ready.
* CoolOldGuy
* EveryManHasHisPrice
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to view himself as a father figure to Haruto and Koyomi. [[spoiler:You can hear the pain in his voice in #47 when he says that Koyomi is better off with "her real father".]]
* RealMenCook
* SmallRoleBigImpact: It's easy to forget that his artifacts were used to help start the Eclipse thereby setting the ''entire plot'' into motion.
* TheEngineer: Obviously, since he makes rings.
* TheSmartGuy
* TeamDad: Has the wisdom and life experience to impart good advice to the rest of the group.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Rinko Daimon]]
->Live Actress: Yuko Takayama (Adult)/Ichino Suehara (Child)

A rookie detective who is devoted to protecting the lives of innocents. She has become interested in Kamen Rider Wizard after being saved by him, and because he is the key to fighting the Phantoms that threaten the city.

!!!Tropes:
* BigEater: Early in #3, she eats all of Haruto's [[DonutMessWithACop donuts]] in a matter of about one minute. Made funnier when in the following episode, she asks Haruto how he can eat so many donuts in one sitting.
* TheCommissionerGordon
* DespairEventHorizon: Is driven dangerously close to it by Minotaur, but pulled back by Wizard.
* FairCop
* [[spoiler:HeroicBSOD: Ends up having this in the last episode. Just as Haruto shows up to (as he put it) "save Koyomi", Rinko ended up thinking Haruto had gone bad. She gets out of it when Haruto explained he was gonna save Koyomi's spirit.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero
** [[spoiler:Tells what she believes to be a good Phantom that he shouldn't follow orders and just do what he wants. Said Phantom turns out to be [[AxCrazy Phoenix]], who takes her advice and decides he's going to [[ForTheEvulz have as much of his]] [[BloodKnight 'fun' as he wants]].]]
** Another is exposing the real arsonist (a Gate's pet bird), where the bird transformed into the phantom in front of a Gate's eyes, causing him to despair. Surprisingly, this is PlayedForLaughs.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: She has standing orders to ignore the Phantom threat, but is going behind her boss' back to help Haruto anyway. Eventually, [[spoiler: Agent Kizaki informs her superiors to not interfere with her association with Wizard after he comes around.]]
* ShipTease: Implied with Haruto.
* SexySantaDress: Wears one in #16 as part of police duty on Christmas Eve, though its more cute than sexy, as noted by Haruto.
* {{Tsundere}}: Has shades of Type B in the first episode.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shunpei Nara]]
->Live Actor: Junki Tozuka/Ryusei Shoji (Child)

A wizardry fanboy who wants to become Haruto's apprentice.

!!!Tropes:

* BigDamnHeroes: Yes, really, in Episode #45 he saves the day stopping Siren from sending the Gate past the Despair Event Horizon.
* BumblingSidekick[=/=]RecklessSidekick: Manages to be both at once.
* {{Camp}}: Has definite shades of this.
* DistressedDude: At least twice.
* FaceFault: Frequently falls on his face for comic effect.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: His dream is to become a magician just like the ones in the story books he read as a child.
* KidAppealCharacter: Definitely meant as a surrogate for young audience members.
* TheKlutz: Known to frequently trip, break things and/or injure himself.
* LargeHam: His expressions are over-the-top. Nuff' said.
* TheLoad: Episodes 12 and 13 have him fearing that he is this because he feels like he doesn't contribute anything to the fight against the Phantoms compared to everyone else on Team Wizard. This is subverted when he realizes his strength is his NiceGuy[[BuffySpeak ness]].
* NiceGuy: His greatest strength. His energetic personality, persistance, determination, and unconditional kindness inspire people to believe in hope and the good in the world and not to fall into despair. Best shown in episode 13.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Helping Rinko expose an arsonist is one. See the above for more details.
* OneOfTheKids: In his first scene, even kids consider him childish. Some episodes later when the VictimOfTheWeek is a kid, he and Shunpei are even dressed the same.
* PlayingWithFire: In his introductory episodes. Subverted as it was the Hellhound Phantom behind the powers.
* {{Sidekick}}: Self-proclaimed one to Haruto. Eventually made official.
* WhatTheHellHero: After his BigDamnHeroes moment, he calls Haruto and Nitoh on their recently callous actions, telling them that they're both no better than the White Wizard.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: When infiltrating a high school in #26.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Donut Shop Hungry Manager]]
->Live Actor: Kaba-chan

The manager of a local donut-focused food truck, the Donut Shop Hungry. He likes Haruto, who is a loyal customer, even though Haruto [[RunningGag only ever buys the plain sugar donuts.]]

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler: ApocalypseMaiden: He was kidnapped by the Akumaizer during Ultimatum and used to bring about the end of the world.]]
* BerserkButton: People messing up his donuts, as seen when he noticed Kosuke spreading mayonnaise on some donuts. Subverted when he tasted one of them himself, as it gave him an inspiration to make a new kind of donut, then played straight again when he served Kosuke a new donut which already had mayonnaise in it, and Kosuke spread more mayo on top. The Manager was furious and refused to let Kosuke eat it.
* CampGay: Is very effeminate and dresses like a woman while working on his food truck. Ironically, the actor playing him, who is openly gay, actually ''tones down'' his campiness for this character.
* FriendToAllChildren
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Is usually involved in this with his employee, Ryuu.
* GossipyHens: The Manager is all-too-quick to start going on about things like Haruto's potential love life and his own dreams. In fact, much of the {{Funny Background Event}}s involve his assistant physically trying to shut him up before he goes too far.
* LocalHangout: When the good guys are not discussing the problem of the week or relaxing in the antique shop, they will definitely be doing so at the donut truck. Strangely, the Manager and his employee never make anything of it until they see Haruto transform in front of them well into the series.
* NoNameGiven: Is only known as Manager.
** ''Movie War Ultimatum'' reveals his name to be [[spoiler:Yu Kamimura.]]
* QueerPeopleAreFunny
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to his employee Ryu's blue.
* ShooOutTheClowns: The Donut Shop Hungry antics become less frequent as the series goes on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ryu the Donut Shop Hungry employee]]

A man who works in the Donut Shop Hungry food truck, always in the company of the Manager.

!!!Tropes
* FlatCharacter: Perhaps one of the most blatant cases in any Kamen Rider series. He really never has much to say or do except to keep his boss in check when he gets into TMI territory, and be frustrated alongside the Manager when Haruto only asks for plain sugar donuts.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to the Manager's red.

[[folder:Sou Fueki/"The White Wizard"/Kamen Rider [[spoiler:Wiseman]]]]
->Voice Actor: Toshitsugi Takashina/Narushi Ikeda
->Suit Actor: Eitoku/Jun Watanabe.
->Live Actor: Narushi Ikeda

A mysterious wizard in white robes who gives Haruto the equipment needed to fight the Phantoms. Later in the series he's shown to be an equally mysterious man named Sou Fueki. [[spoiler:He's revealed to be Wiseman, leader of the Phantoms.]]

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler:AlasPoorVillain]]
* AllThereInTheManual: In-series, his Rider form is only ever referred to as "the White Wizard". Information later released from Toei revealed that this form is officially called Kamen Rider [[spoiler:Wiseman]].
* [[spoiler: AlwaysSaveTheGirl: His motivation, though not in a good way.]]
* AntiHero: He fights both Phantoms and other Riders.
** [[spoiler:AntiVillain]]
* {{Badass}}: Well, what did you expect? He repelled a Phantom using a magical rune without needing to physically do anything.
** Later he delivers a CurbstompBattle to Beelzebub, who even Haruto's Flame Dragon Style couldn't beat, with ''two attacks'', both of which pack so much force Beelzebub gets BlownAcrossTheRoom. Once more, he barely had to lift a finger to do it.
** His response to [[spoiler:''Medusa'', a Greater Phantom that just beat the crap out of Haruto]]? Say "Begone!" and blow her away with a wave of his hand.
** BadassBaritone
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: [[spoiler:He was not born a Gate and thus did not possess magic naturally like Haruto; he used science to artificially grow a Phantom within himself and give himself magic.]]
** BadassLongcoat: Wears one as Fueki. His White Wizard form has a BadassLongrobe.
** BadassInANiceSuit
* BigGood: Initially seems this way. He provides Haruto with new gear and steps in to save him at times if need be. [[spoiler:However, things start to [[EvilMentor change]] by #31.]]
** [[spoiler:BigBad]]
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: He uses this as a justification for his more dickish moves, it's a very obvious lie.
* BigDamnHeroes: Most times he shows up, it's to drive away a Phantom in the nick of time.
** [[spoiler:VillainousRescue: Turns out that it was really this trope all along.]]
* [[spoiler: BitchInSheepsClothing: In his earlier appearances he was your standard BigGood, but by the end, it has become obvious that he only values people depending how useful they are to him and his goals.]]
* BlatantLies: Him playing the destiny card is rather obvious BS in and out of universe.
* BrokenAce: [[spoiler: He's a brilliant scientist who has made countless discoveries that has helped mankind, the most powerful Wizard in the setting, reinvented magic, is the WorldsStrongestMan, but he's also a mass murdering egocentric maniac who was driven insane by his daughter's death.]]
* BrownNote: Whenever the White Wizard uses his weapon in a flute-like manner. [[spoiler:Kizaki and Beast were victims of this.]]
* [[spoiler:ButThouMust: There are some people who turned down his offer in becoming a magician. The White Wizard simply chained them up, bring them to another place and made them BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* [[spoiler: ButNotTooEvil: He's a loving father, so he's not all evil. While a lot of people died and became phantoms by his hands, but judging by the dialogue between him and Gremlin in #50, he's definitely not proud of it.]]
* CastAsAMask: After he's revealed to be Fueki, his voice actor is replaced by Fueki's actor.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Rather easy to be one when you run both sides.]]
* [[spoiler:ConsummateLiar: Everything that came out of his mouth during the first three quarters of the show were nothing more than excellently crafted lies.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Everytime he pulls a BigDamnHeroes moment, he is curb-stomping someone. First he knocked away Lizardman with a magical rune, and he sent [[KnightOfCerebus Beelzebub]] running with just two attacks. And he did so both times without moving from his spot. Later curb-stomp victims include [[spoiler:Medusa, Beast (twice), and Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathByIrony: The man who has plotted everything from Haruto's rise to power all the way up to the Eclipse is defeated by a person who depended more on luck than on proper planning... ''twice''.]]
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: The original Koyomi's death was this for him. It turned him into a completely [[MoralMyopia amoral]], [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]] [[EntitledBastard bastard]]... And he ''didn't'' turn into a Phantom. He's still human.]]
** [[spoiler: Might be subverted because right after he goes through it, he creates an artificial phantom.]]
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: He gives Haruto the [=WizarDriver=] and teaches him how to use it before disappearing. Later, he anonymously delivers the magic stone for the Flame Dragon Ring, directs Koyomi to the Water Dragon stone, and helps Haruto create the Drago Timer. He even eventually takes on Mayu and Yuzuru as apprentices - even though Yuzuru doesn't ''want'' to be one.
* [[spoiler:EntitledBastard: He states that everyone that he turned into a Phantom should be happy that they died for him.]]
* [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Fueki may be evil, but he truly does love his daughter and seems to miss his wife a great deal.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong]]
* [[spoiler:EvilCounterpart: Examining him closely you'll realize he's a pretty solid one to Haruto. They both lost their loved ones (and bonus points for the inverse relationship, with Haruto being the child who lost his parents and Fueki being the parent who lost his child) and while Haruto was able to move on from his loss and become a selfless NiceGuy, Fueki became a selfish, callous human being. They also got their powers in opposite ways, as Haruto gained his magic from the power of hope while Fueki got the idea to give himself magic powers after passing the DespairEventHorizon. Both were motivated by Koyomi but in the end, Haruto knew when to stop chasing ghosts while Fueki didn't.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilMentor]]
* [[spoiler:EvilSorcerer: He's got all the bases covered. All-powerful and mysterious? Check. Summons demons? Check. Mass human sacrifice? ''Triple'' check.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilSoundsDeep]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler:[[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Shirou Kanzaki]], post-#48. His tendency to teleport and overpower absolutely everyone also bears resemblance to Shirou's Dragon, Kamen Rider Odin. Bonus points for the fact that Shirou is technically Odin in a sense. It's also worth noting that, while the names have different spellings, ''Shiro''i [[note]]white, as in White Wizard[[/note]] and ''Shiro''u sound almost the same]].
* {{Familiar}}: The White Garuda and Cerberus [=PlaMonsters=].
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine
* [[spoiler: HumanSacrifice: Fueki is a BIG fan of this trope and is his answer to any problem that comes up in his life: Kidnap a bunch of people and turn them into horrid monsters.]]
* {{Irony}}: The most powerful Wizard in the story is most well known as [[spoiler: a scientist.]]
* [[spoiler:ItsAllAboutMe: Haruto calls him out on murdering countless people to further his own goals. He calls them all "insignificant" and says that they should be happy that they died for him.]]
* [[spoiler:KickTheDog: He beat Kizaki into a coma because he figured out some secret about him, abducted a kid to train against his will, and nearly killed Beast for interfering twice over.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: by Sora.]]
** [[spoiler: NoBodyLeftBehind: Probably from the Artificial Phantom in him.]]
* KillSteal: [[spoiler:Sorry Mayu, looks like you won't be getting your revenge after all.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: When he shows up, shit gets real.
* KnightTemplar: Despises the Phantoms and wants them destroyed, but is willing to go to rather extreme lengths to do so. [[spoiler:Or that's his cover story.]]
* LanguageOfMagic: The White Wizard is able to do this, and what's better is that's it's combined with his [[BadassBaritone already-deep voice]].
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:His plans come crashing down because he pissed off the wrong person (Nitoh) in his second attempt to save Koyomi, and was utterly defeated by two people who were birthed from his first attempt (Sora and Haruto)]].
** HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:He's killed by the same weapon he used to pin Sora to a tree with... By the very same guy no less]].
* LightIsGood: At first, then...
** LightIsNotGood: As the fight against the Phantoms goes on, the White Wizard gradually shows a darker, more ruthless side. [[spoiler:And then he's revealed to be an alter-ego of Wiseman.]]
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouEvil [[LoveMakesYouCrazy and Crazy]]: The original Koyomi's death made him completely lose it!]]
* [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather Koyomi, I Am Your Father]]]]
* {{Lunacy}}: His InstantRunes have the lunar cycle imprinted on them.
* [[spoiler:MadScientist]]
* [[spoiler: MagiTech: He created his magic from science. He even implanted himself with an Artificial Phantom!]]
* [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMonsters]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:His relationship with Mayu is disturbingly similar to his alter-ego's relationship with Medusa.]] And [[spoiler:he's responsible for the death of Mayu's sister and parents in the first place.]]
* MasterActor: [[spoiler:Fueki was able to con everyone with his skills. He was able to play the role as a benevolent BigGood as the White Wizard, a mysterious EvilOverlord as Wiseman, and a morally ambiguous AntiHero in the later phases of his plan all while hiding that he really isn't all that sane.]]
* MixAndMatchWeapon: [[MagicalFlutist Hamel]] [[BladeOnAStick Cane]]
* [[spoiler:MoralMyopia: He truly loves his daughter, but outside of that he's an outright sociopath considering kidnapping, assault, mass murder, and human sacrifice to be perfectly acceptable practices.]]
* [[spoiler:NiceJobBreakingItHero: His killing of Medusa in #48 when he decided that she wasn't needed after finding his fourth Wizard. By that point, with the exception of the Wizard's Phantoms, it would appear that she and Gremlin were the only Phantoms left. If only Fueki had kept her alive and manipulated her for just a while longer, seeing as how out of everyone she was perhaps most cautious of Sora and as stated by Wiseman himself, she was the only one he really trusted. She might have taken Sora down just as he was about to make his move.]]
* NotSoDifferent: To Gremlin of all people. [[spoiler: Both are selfish mass murderers who have driven themselves insane chasing ghosts and both exemplify why HumansAreTheRealMonsters. This is probably why he flipped out when Gremlin called him "Father", it hit a little too close to home.]]
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: [[spoiler: He's said to be a famous physicist, but has also contributed to a number of other fields, including medicine and technology. Plus being a biologist and magicologist, since he invented an artificial Phantom (Carbuncle, AKA Wiseman) and implanted it in himself to let him wield magic.]]
* PaletteSwap: His costume is unique in a sense, but he and Wizard share the same base.
** His belt was initially a blatant example of a repaint of Haruto's Wizardriver during his debut and early appearances, but the producers replaced the repainted prop with an actual slightly different White Wizardriver.
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler: ''Do'' '''''NOT''''' mess with his daughter; Gremlin learned this the hard way...TWICE.]]
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: "消える." [[note]]It is pronounced ''kieru'', which means "Vanish." or "Begone."[[/note]]
* {{Pride}}: Fueki is completely convinced in his own infallibility, superiority, and righteousness, making him incapable of seeing himself in being wrong in any way. [[spoiler: This causes him to leave loose ends, like letting Nitoh and Sora live.]]
* RingOfPower: After all, he's "Wizard but stronger." Many of his rings are [[PropRecycling Wizard's by different names]]:
** ''Change Ring'': Transforms the user into the White Wizard.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls the White Wizard's Driver.
** ''[[BarrierWarrior Barrier Ring]]'': Allows WW to create a strong defensive barrier. A renamed version of Wizard's Defend Ring.
** ''Connect Ring'': Provides a link between two locations or people; identical to Wizard's.
** '' Explosion Ring'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. As basic as it sounds, it's surprisingly powerful, on par with Beast's Hyper Mirage Magnum attack.
** ''Teleport Ring'': Allows MassTeleportation.
** ''Chain Ring'': Circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims. Again, it's Wizard's Bind Ring by a different name.
** ''White Garuda Ring'': Summons the White Garuda [=PlaMonster=].
** ''Cerberus Ring:'' Summons the Black Cerberus [=PlaMonster=].
** ''Dupe Ring'': Allows SelfDuplication. However, unlike Wizard's Copy Ring, it works more like the Drago Timer, with each clone moving independently rather than unison.
** The White [=WizarDriver=] suggests he has more rings that match Wizard's but have different names, such as a "Giant Ring" (Big), and "Micro Ring" (Small).
* [[spoiler:RunningBothSides]]
* ShadowArchetype: Not just in the traditional way, but even his own Driver has its own 'dark' versions of Wizard's spells. It replaces the Wizardriver's "Please" with "Now", "Chou ii ne![[labelnote:*]]Very nice![[/labelnote]]" with "Yes!" and "Saikoooou![[labelnote:*]]Fabulous![[/labelnote]]" with "Understand?!"
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: [[spoiler: Tells Haruto as much when Haruto says he'll save Koyomi another way.]]
* SpaceMaster: Materials identify his magic as space-based, evidenced by his signature rings: Explosion (supercompresses and then releases magic in a very small area) and Teleport (self-explanatory).
* StrangerBehindTheMask: [[spoiler:Fueki]] is introduced one episode before he's revealed as the White Wizard. [[spoiler: Subverted when he's revealed to be Wiseman.]]
* SuperEmpowering: When a Gate manages to resist despair, he immediately teleports in to offer them the chance to become a wizard. [[spoiler:And doesn't take "no" for an answer. Also applies to himself, since he became a Wizard by creating an artificial Phantom and implanting it in his own body.]]
* TheEngineer: It is heavily implied that he makes his own rings, though not particularly as good as Wajima when it comes to quality.
* TheStoic: The White Wizard is strangely calm for almost everytime he appears.
** TranquilFury: He does, however, show subtle hints that he's definitely ''not'' the nicest person.
*** The Fury part is more evident whenever he does his Henshin call.
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:Just look at how pissed he gets when Beast ruins his plans.]]
* [[spoiler: TheSvengali: He raises and trains Wizards in order to turn them into {{Human Sacrifice}}s for his own selfish benefit.]]
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:His reaction to Beast ruining his plans.]]
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Strangely enough, The White Wizard doesn't seem to give a shit about Phantoms, despite his power. The Lizardman, Phoenix, Beelzebub, Medusa, and Legion Phantoms were all at his mercy, but they lived (a little longer) because of his choice to let Haruto do the dirty work instead.
** Almost subverted in #46; Gremlin pushes him a bit too far, with the latter actually aiming to kill Gremlin. He almost gave chase when Gremlin flees, but is stopped by Haruto.
* [[spoiler:TragicVillain: All he wanted to do was save his daughter's life, but in the end failed to accomplish even that, only succeeding in creating an army of monsters and allowing a {{Sociopath}}ic SerialKiller to gain unspeakable power by killing his daughter.]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: [[spoiler:No matter what, he never saw Beast as a threat. This came to epically bite him in the ass.]]
** [[spoiler:Deconstructed with Gremlin. This proved to be a fatal mistake for not only him, but for everyone else.]]
* TheUnfettered: [[spoiler:There is no price to high, no atrocity too heinous to commit, and no MoralEventHorizon he will not cross in order to save his daughter.]]
* {{Unperson}}: He seems to have done this to himself. There is almost no information about his former identity.
** He also goes through a lot of trouble to make sure nobody investigates him. [[spoiler:Including seriously injuring Kizaki and destroying his office.]]
* [[spoiler: UnreliableExpositor: Shamelessly lies to get others to do his bidding.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: While he has done enough atrocities to fill a book on purpose there was no way he could have known that the campy hairdresser he kidnapped was a sociopath and a SerialKiller that would eventually become an all powerful monster that he couldn't control.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: [[NotSoStoic Gets noticeably angry]] for the first time when Beast foils the second Sabbath.]]
-->"[[spoiler: I'll have you cowering in fear and despair as you die!]]"
* WalkingSpoiler
** His actual ''official name'' of his transformation is one! [[spoiler:Kamen Rider Wiseman as confirmed by Toei and Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His goal of stopping phantoms doesn't stop the fact that he [[spoiler:kidnaps Yuzuru to do this, as well as beat up Kizaki and Beast for interfering.]]
** As it turns out [[spoiler:his ''real'' goal is to help his daughter Koyomi, and if that means taking things to the extreme, so be it]].
* WorldsStrongestMan: He is clearly in a league of his own. [[spoiler:Wizard had to go all out with Infinity just to beat him and that knocked Haruto out of his transformation]].
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: The first Sabbath was supposed to revive Koyomi but it was only halfway successful. Seeing Haruto overcome his despair caused Fueki to modify his plans to use Wizards as the sacrifices instead.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast]]
->Live Actor: Tasuku Nagase
->Suit Actor: Jun Watanabe

A student archeologist who discovered a mysterious belt known as the Beast Driver in one of his expeditions.

!!!Tropes:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Does not like people calling him "Mayonnaise".
* AntiHero: After Yuzuru's kidnapping he's shown that he's willing to throw his morals out the window in order to save him. [[spoiler:This includes teaming up with [[TheSociopath Sora]].]]
* AllMenArePerverts: The man spends the first act of Episode #26 being enamored with schoolgirls.
** Lampshaded by Rinko when he argues that the girl he was looking for was Medusa, while commenting on how cute she was.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing
* {{Badass}}: Obviously.
* BadassCape: Has a half-cape, whenever he changes his Mantles on his right.
** {{Flight}}: Falco Mantle
** HealingHands: Dolphi Mantle, which allows Beast to use healing magic.
** InvisibilityCloak[=/=]WhipItGood: Chameleo Mantle
** ALoadOfBull: Buffa Mantle
* BadassBookworm: He was an archaeologist before becoming Beast.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: He manages to do this to Sphinx. [[spoiler:And to the White Wizard in their final battle.]]
* BigBrotherMentor: To Yuzuru.
* BigEater: Deconstructed. He needs to keep eating not just regular food, but the mana from phantoms as well, or else he will die.
* [[spoiler:BroughtDownToBadass: Sacrificing his powers to stop the second Sabbath doesn't stop him from kicking Ghoul butt in the finale.]]
* ButtMonkey: In ''and'' out of combat.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Now, it's lunchtime!" and "Stop! Don't say it!"
** Haruto finally lampshades Nitoh's "Stop! Don't say it!" in episode 47.
** Less often, but still frequent, is [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste "A pinch is the same as a chance".]]
* CurbStompBattle: On the receiving end of ''two'' from [[spoiler:the White Wizard.]] [[spoiler:He makes up for it with a sacrifice play in round three.]]
* DanceBattler: Not prominent, but Beast is somehow able to do so during #26 against Medusa.
** It could be possibly explained as because the suit actor, Jun Watanabe, is acting for Beast and Medusa, so the producers probably had to get either Takaiwa or Eitoku to suit up as Beast.
* DealWithTheDevil: Accepts an offer from Sora to help find the White Wizard.
* DitzyGenius: Tends to lose his train of thought and go off on weird tangents making you forget that he is a skilled fighter and a talented archeologist.
* DualWielding: In Episode 43 he was able to use both the Dice Saber and the Mirage Magnum as Beast Hyper. This combination makes the [[InvincibleHero White Wizard]] treat him as a threat.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ryuki Riders]] with his relationship with Chimera.
* {{Familiar}}: His Griffin [=PlaMonster=].
* FriendToAllChildren
* FunSize: Rolling one on the Dice Sabre cause the sole animal to be chibi-sized. Only fun to watch it [[EpicFail being unable to finish the foe off]], though.
* GenreThrowback: His henshin pose is a more elaborate series of movements similar to the Showa era Kamen Rider shows.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: Whenever the subject of the Engage Rings come up, he comments on how he doesn't want another dude [[WithThisRing putting a ring on his hand]] or vice-versa.
** This may have to do with the StealthPun with the Engage Ring.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He sets Chimera free to stop the second Sabbath. Even Chimera didn't know what would happen to Nitoh afterwards, but in the end Nitoh just loses his powers.]] In a way, [[spoiler:he and Haruto are even, doing something to protect the other at the cost of their powers.]]
* HiddenDepths: Episodes that focus on him tend to show that he's not as angst-free about his condition as he acts.
* {{Keet}}: Until Episode 42.
* {{Kiai}}: Shouts out ''gao'' when he attacks, which is Japanese onomatopoeia for a lion's roar.
* KidAppealCharacter: He started out as one, being a competent Shunpei, but grows out of it after Yuzuru's kidnapping and becoming an unfettered AntiHero.
* KungFuWizard[=/=]MagicKnight: depends on how you look at it.
* LargeHam: There are many times where you can see his hamminess, such as when he was telling the time he got his Beast Driver, or, more commonly, his Henshin call.
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: His basic attitude is that danger comes with opportunity.
* LetsGetDangerous: Tends to suffer from lack of focus but when the situation calls for it he'll get serious. Best shown with the Legion situation.
** Slyphi's crimes made him become extremely dangerous.
** By Episode 42 you'll wonder if he's the same person with how serious, angry, and dangerous he's become.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: When he first arrived, he knew next to nothing about Phantoms except Chimera eats them. Until Haruto fills him in, this was part of the reason for their conflict.
* MagicalGirl: To hide his identity from his grandmother, he resorted to calling himself this.
* MoreDakka: A normal Saber Strike summons the number of mana creatures he rolls on the Dice Saber. A Hyper Saber Strike takes that number and ''multiplies it by four'' (the number rolled per each of his Mantles).
* MultiformBalance: Rather than a form change, he uses capes with different abilities called "Mantles".
** JackOfAllStats: Beast (no Mantle)
** FragileSpeedster: Falco
** ConfusionFu: Chameleo
** MightyGlacier: Buffa
** SquishyWizard: Dolphi [[note]]Not much has been seen of this mantle, but it seems to have combat and [[HealingHands healing skills]], as well as other "tricks".[[/note]]
** SuperMode: Beast Hyper (no Mantle)
** FightingClown: Wizard Style (no Mantle) [[note]]Beast's default form with the [[BadassLongcoat Land Overcoat]] and [[WolverineClaws Drago Hell Claws]].[[/note]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he discovers Phantoms emerging from a Gate '''kills''' them, something he didn't know when he unwittingly aided the Phantoms.
* MyGreatestFailure: In episode #31, he considers [[spoiler:being unable to stop Dragon from being killed by Legion]] this.
** This has been replaced by Yuzuru's kidnapping at [[spoiler:the White Wizard's]] hands. It has turned him into an unfettered, hardcore, AntiHero.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The rest of the cast is very creeped out at how serious he is after Yuzuru's kidnapping.
* PhlebotinumDependence
* PoorCommunicationKills: All of the conflict he creates comes from his inability to listen to other people.
* PowerAtAPrice: Chimera granted him the power to fight Phantoms through the Beast Driver, but requires that Kosuke regularly feed him the mana of defeated monsters.
* PowerupLetdown:
** Rolling a one on his Dice Sabre. The single creature it summons isn't enough even to annoy a Phantom.
*** Subverted the third time, though, where with his HeroicWillpower, it becomes much more powerful.
** His Hyper Form has some aspects of this, as it's stronger but doesn't have access to his Mantles and is therefore less versatile.
* [[PunyEarthlings Puny Archtype]]: The White Wizard spits this insult at Beast's face during their fights.
* [[spoiler: RePower: In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' he recaptures Chimera offscreen and becomes Beast again.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Haruto's blue.
* RingOfPower: Allows him to transform and switch powers. Rather than having Styles like Wizard, he has Mantles, which influences his power depending on what half-cape he dons on his right side.
** ''Beast Ring'': When inserted into the Beast Driver and turned, this ring opens the buckle and activates the transformation.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls on the Beast Driver.
** ''Falco Ring'': Equips Beast with the Falco Mantle.
** ''Chameleo Ring'': Equips Beast with the Chameleo Mantle.
** ''Buffa Ring'': Equips Beast with the Buffa Mantle.
** ''Dolphi Ring'': Equips Beast with the Dolphi Mantle.
** ''Griffon Ring'': Allows Beast to Summon the Green Griffon Plamonster. Interestingly, Nitoh has to use ''Driver On'' in order to summon Griffon.
** ''Chimerise Ring'': Summons [=BeastChimera=].
** ''Engage Ring'': Enables Beast to enter a Gate's Underworld.
** ''Hyper Ring'': Changes Beast into his [[SuperMode Hyper Style]] and arms him with the Mirage Magnum.
* TheRival: He viewed Haruto as this, mainly because he's off killing his food source and at the start believed he was snacking on Phantoms too. Though he seems to mean it in a [[FriendlyRival friendly or joking manner]]. He even says that rivals ought to give one another a hand every so often. He stopped being rivals with him once the Phantoms hit it too close to home and went after his grandmother.
** He also declared the White Wizard as a Rival upon meeting him, but let's face it, the White Wizard is way out of Nitoh's league. [[spoiler:As the White Wizard eventually proved; but Nitoh got the better of him when it counted.]]
* SecondRider
* SoLastSeason: Soon after he showed up, Haruto got access to the Drago Timer. [[spoiler:Even getting his SuperMode didn't help much, as one arc after Nitoh getting Hyper Beast, Haruto's set to get Infinity Style. Poor Nitoh.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks
* StepfordSmiler: Type A.
* SuperPrototype: Despite his Driver being ancient, he's shown to be about on par with Wizard's Dragon Forms. His Driver is far more limited in the number of rings he can use, however.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: All the time, usually to the effect of "I'm totally not doing X just so I can eat the Phantom!"
* SwordAndGun: He can pull out both the Dice Sabre and the Mirage Magnum in any form. He first use this style in #43.
* [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Trademark Favorite Condiment]]: Mayonnaise. He puts it on everything he eats, [[{{Squick}} even doughnuts]].
* TransformationTrinket: His Beast Driver and Beast Rings.
** This is played for laughs in his debut, as he forgets where he keeps his Rings.
* TranquilFury: This has replaced his KidAppealCharacter personality after Episode 42. And it is ''extremely'' creepy to see him with such DissonantSerenity. After Shunpei [[WhatTheHellHero calls him and Haruto out for their White Wizard-driven behavior]], he drops this.
* UnknownRival: To the White Wizard...[[spoiler:at first.]]
* UnstoppableRage: Whenever Nitoh gets angry his competence goes up a million fold.
** But even with such justified anger, [[spoiler:it's still not enough against the White Wizard. At least not until it really counts.]]
* [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: After #51, he's actually trying to track down Chimera. In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' it's revealed he recaptured Chimera [[OffscreeMomentOfAwesome offscreen.]]]]
* WeaponOfChoice
** RoyalRapier: Dice Saber
** CoolGuns: Mirage Magnum
* WhatAnIdiot: InUniverse example. This is what Haruto thinks of his plan to catch Raum with bird seed. He was proven right when Nitoh almost got eaten alive by crows.
* WrongContextMagic: His magic works differently than Haruto's in that he needs to eat Phantoms' Mana in order to survive. He originally thought ''all'' magic worked this way and his initial conflict with Haruto is largely due to this misunderstanding.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Beast Chimera/Chimera Phantom]]
->Voice Actor: TomomichiNishimura

Nitoh's Phantom, though unlike other Phantoms, it was not manifested within Nitoh. Instead, it was sealed inside the Beast Driver a long time ago, when magic and science were used together. It merged with Nitoh when he discovered and first used the Beast Driver.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* {{Badass}}: Nitoh outright calls him this.
* BondCreature: To Nitoh. In exchange for using his power, Nitoh needs to feed him the Mana from other Phantoms.
* BreathWeapon: Its Beast Laser attack fires a beam from each of its mouths.
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo: Invoked by Chimera after Kosuke breaks the Beast Driver as a last ditch attempt to stop the second Sabbath. Chimera also spared Kosuke from being eaten as a token of good will... and because Kosuke amused him.]]
* {{Expy}}: Reminiscent of the Hachibi (personality-wise, at least), contrasting Dragon's Kyubi.
* FinishingMove: ''[[ManBitesMan Biting End]]''
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Unlike Dragon, he feeds on other Phantoms (evidently for survival) of his own free will.
* [[ImAHumanitarian I'm A Phantomitarian]]: Eats other Phantoms.
** In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' [[spoiler: he finds a new food: [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Helheim Fruits.]]]]
* KingOfBeasts: His primary animal motif.
* MixAndMatchCritter: Is composed of the various animals Beast's Mantles are based on.
* NobleDemon: Unlike Dragon, he seems a good bit less vicious and is a good deal more willing to cooperate with Nitoh. He just asks Nitoh to feed him the Mana from other Phantoms in return for lending him his powers. However if Nitoh fails to keep him filled, he will kill him.
** [[spoiler:Solidifies his position as this when Nitoh releases him from the Beast Driver to stop the second Sabbath. After doing so, Chimera tells him their deal is finished and Nitoh is free to go.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: Unlike Dragon, he's stuck in the belt, rather than the person. [[spoiler:Is released in #49, and turns out to be a rather nice guy.]]
** [[spoiler: Kouta is revealed to have re-sealed him in ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'']]

[[folder:Mayu Inamori/Kamen Rider Mage]]
->Live Actor: Erina Nakayama
->Suit Actor: Satoshi Fujita

The twin sister of Misa Inamori a.k.a. Medusa. She, like Haruto, managed to suppress her phantom and after training with the White Wizard, returns as a witch.

* ActionGirl
* AndThenWhat: Shes not sure what to do after [[spoiler: Medusa dies.]]
* {{Badass}}
* BigDamnHeroes: Her debut as Mage in Episode 40, intefering just in time before Medusa can finish Haruto off.
* BrokenBird
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Medusa's Cain.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:The White Wizard said he will give her the means of defeating Medusa in trade for the Infinity Ring. She eventually tells Haruto about it...and he gives her the ring of his own free will]].
* DistressBall: Grabs it after TheReveal. She becomes so broken that she's easily kidnapped by [[spoiler: Fueki's latest Dragon, Yuzuru (a child).]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Kamen Rider Femme]], in that both are out to avenge the one who killed their older sister. [[spoiler:It becomes even more blatant after Fueki and Wiseman are revealed to not only be the same person, but also a Shirou Kanzaki Expy who, like Kanzaki, gave both people involved their powers.]]
* FauxActionGirl: [[spoiler: Became one after Medusa's defeat. Justified as she only becomes a magician just to avenge her family. She was distracted in her conflict with The White Wizard after his reveal. She gets better in the finale, and becomes Haruto's successor in Section Zero.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Kamen Rider Mage is nothing more than an overglorified mook. Looks like Toei is being lazy again, huh? WRONG! [[spoiler: Mage is based off of a pawn, and that's all Fueki see's Mayu as, she isn't a powerful bodyguard like Haruto was supposed to be, all she was needed for was as a sacrifice for a second Sabbath. Her form as Mage represents Fueki's true colors.]]
* NotSoDifferent: She and Medusa are both [[spoiler: emotionally dependent on the same person.]]
* PowerOfHate: This is what she really runs on.
* RevengeBeforeReason: She will get revenge on Medusa, no matter what. [[spoiler: Even if it means going to the White Wizard, while fully aware of some of the horrible things he's done.]]
* RingOfPower: Like with the White Wizard, most of her rings seem to be [[PropRecycling copied from other wizards]]:
** ''Mage Ring:'' The transformation ring.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls on the Mage Driver. Visually identical to Fueki's, even down to the deeper tone.
** ''Connect Ring'': Identical to both Wizard's and White Wizard's, it provides a link between two locations or people.
** ''[[BarrierWarrior Barrier Ring]]'': Allows Mage to create a strong defensive barrier. Again, identical to Wizard's Defend Ring and White Wizard's own Barrier Ring.
** ''Teleport Ring'': Allows MassTeleportation. Same as the White Wizard's.
** ''[[GravityMaster Gravity Ring]]'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The same as Wizard's Gravity Ring, if he didn't just loan it to her to begin with.
** ''[[HolyHandGrenade Holy Ring]]'': Releases holy light that severely damages Phantoms.
* [[spoiler:TakeUpMySword: After Haruto leaves to go hide the PhilosophersStone, she takes his place as the Wizard protector of Tokyo.]]
* WeaponOfChoice
** SwissArmyWeapon: [=WizarSwordGun=]
** WolverineClaws: Scratch Nail

* [[spoiler: EleventhHourRanger]]
* [[spoiler: RefusalOfTheCall: Following the advice of Kosuke and Haruto, Yuzuru decides to doesn't want to be a wizard. Finding it too scary. However...]]
** [[spoiler: KidnappedByTheCall: White Wizard doesn't give two craps about that and kidnaps him.]]
** [[spoiler: And in #51 he accepts the call of his own will.]]

A soon-to-be father targeted by the phantom Arachne. [[spoiler: Driven to despair but manages to hold back his Phantom. He eventually becomes the green Kamen Rider Mage.]]

* [[spoiler: EleventhHourRanger]]
* [[spoiler: HappilyEverAfter: He gets to have his family in the end.]]
* [[spoiler: RefusalOfTheCall: Like Yuzuru, Masahiro refuses to become a Wizard]]
** [[spoiler: KidnappedByTheCall: Also like Yuzuru, the White Wizard wasn't asking his permission and kidnaps him.]]
** [[spoiler: TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: Eventually he decides to help out to protect his family.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Understandably does this [[spoiler: after the second Sabbath fails...but then decides to use his powers again when Gremlin attacks.]]

[[folder:Masanori Kizaki]]
->Live Actor: Naoki Kawano

The head of Section Zero who reluctantly helps out in the battle against the Phantoms.

!!!Tropes:

* [[spoiler: ConvenientComa]]: He gets better.
* DistressedDude: Of the non humorous variant.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Seems this way at first.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler: The White Wizard attacked him for prying into his identity.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Definitely.

[[/folder]]

!Phantoms

[[folder: General Tropes]]
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Their plans are to kill people by driving them to the lowest point [[spoiler:so that there can be enough of them to force a ritual where multiple humans die and create Phantoms in their despair]]. The Phantoms that object to this only do so because they think it'd make more sense [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim if they just murder the people directly]] or just cause wanton destruction. Even Wizard's own Phantom, Wizardragon, goes on a rampage whenever it is summoned and needs to be tamed. Clinging onto the hope that some Phantoms are good or at least have some humanity? The show even goes out of its way to show that it's close to impossible, with some Phantoms faking their "humanity". [[spoiler:Yeah, there's one Phantom who has his humanity intact, but that's only because he was evil to begin with]].
** [[spoiler:Subverted by Wizardragon eventually, who makes a full HeelFaceTurn in #31.]]
* BecomingTheMask: To a certain degree. Many of the Lesser Phantoms have quirks based on their Gates occupation.
** Minotauros acted like a DirtyCop.
** Hellhound was rather dramatic while his Gate was a television host.
** Gnome acted like a sommelier.
** Valkyrie, whose Gate was a low-ranking store manager, acts like a ProfessionalButtKisser.
** Lizardman, whose Gate was a filmmaker, likes to "Cast" people as "Corpses".
** Manticore would read people's fortunes.
** Beelzebub was always acting like he was conducting music, or using music terms.
** Spriggan has been giving people words of caution, while acting like a DirtyCop.
** Sora/Gremlin was both a hair dresser and [[spoiler: SerialKiller]] as a human and continues to perform his second hobby as a Phantom, plus his Rapture blades resemble scissors...
** Raum, who can turn into a Myna Bird, still acts like an animal while in Phantom form.
** Sphinx was once a stage magician and continues to perform slight of hand magic even though he has the real deal now.
* BishonenLine: Instead of [[OneWingedAngel turning into a giant monster upon defeat]], Phantoms ''start'' as a giant rampaging monster tearing the victim's soul apart then take on humanoid form upon killing them and materializing into the real world.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "The human (''name of Gate'') died, giving birth to a Phantom... me", normally said upon a Phantom revealing their true identity, though precise wording may vary. Usually a WhamLine.
** "Let the fear of death drive you to despair!" whenever a Phantom can't think of a specific way to make a Gate despair.
* DespairEventHorizon: Are ''born'' when a person with supernatural potential is driven over this, tearing them apart from the inside out and killing them from within to materialize into the real world.
* {{Expy}}: The CoDragons are, in different ways, Expies to the same person: [[spoiler:Takeshi Asakura/Kamen Rider Ouja:]]
** [[spoiler:Phoenix is an Ax Crazy Blood Knight who simply wants to kill anyone he can.]]
** [[spoiler:Medusa is a Manipulative Bastard and shares the same relation to Mayu as Ouja did to Kamen Rider Femme, who Mayu is an Expy of.]]
** [[spoiler:Like Ouja, Sora was a very prolific serial killer before gaining supernatural powers and continued to be one.]]
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Don't expect any form of basic competency out of these nimrods.
* FiveBadBand: A four-man variation amongst the Higher Phantoms, with there being three CoDragons instead of one Dragon:
** BigBad: Wiseman
** EvilGenius: Medusa
** TheBrute: Phoenix
** DarkChick[=/=]SixthRangerTraitor: Gremlin
* HopeCrusher: By necessity, as it's the way to create new Phantoms.
* InNameOnly: Many of them have very little resemblance to the mythological creatures they're named after, except Bogy.
* KillAndReplace: Are born when their Gate suffers DeathByDespair, then masquerade as them to try and drive others over the DespairEventHorizon and create more. The extent to which they take the "replace" part depends on their plan and the Phantom's particular host. If a Phantom's host knew the target Gate, or had some special status in society, they will use that, but many Phantoms will reveal themselves immediately upon encountering the Gate.
* MadeOfEvil: Well made of despair and dark magic.
* OneWingedAngel: Inverted. The monster that Wizard just killed doesn't transform, he travels into their victim's [[MentalWorld Underworld]] and fights their yet to be fully awakened Phantom, who ''is'' a giant monster.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent.
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: The Lesser Phantoms have become noticeably stronger as the story progresses. Originally Haruto fought jokes like Minotaur, Lizardman, and Hydra that only lasted as long as they did because of his ego, followed by Phantoms that could actually put up a fight like Spriggan, Bogy, Argus, and Raum, and now we have guys like Bahamut who is as strong as ''Phoenix'' after multiple revivals.
** Once Gremlin got promoted, he started choosing stronger Phantoms with tricky powers (such as Bogy and Raum), and Medusa started choosing more powerful ones to try and outdo him.
* ThatManIsDead: Phantoms normally state that the person they were born from "died a long time ago" upon revealing their true identity.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: All the Sabbath victims were implied to be decent people at least, as the sole exception who survived the ritual and became a phantom himself was [[spoiler:a serial killer to begin with.]]
* [[spoiler: UnwittingPawn: The entire freaking race.]]
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Played with; some of the Phantoms are smart and clever, using their wits to make the Gates despair. However, there are some who tend to do what Phoenix does and beat the living crap out of their Gates, hoping that them going through a near-death experience will cause them to cross the DespairEventHorizon, hence their catchphrase. Sora actually takes note of this, called out a Phantom for doing this tactic when the Gate was perfectly willing to turn into a Phantom (as she wouldn't despair and attacking her will just kill her) and hires Phantoms that specialize in emotional manipulation. [[spoiler:Until he gets the Philosopher's Stone. Then he decides to cut the middleman and do the same tactic as his brethren]].

[[folder:Wiseman]]
->Live Actor: [[spoiler:Narushi Ikeda]]\\
Voice Actor: Creator/ToshioFurukawa\\
Suit Actor: Jun Watanabe.

The Carbuncle Phantom and the group's mysterious leader, who is trying to find Gates to send into despair and create new Phantoms for some unknown purpose. [[spoiler:In actuality, he is the White Wizard, trying to find Gates to ''resist'' despair and become new wizards to use in his second Sabbath.]]

!!!Tropes:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* {{Badass}}
* BigBad: He's the one calling the shots amongst the Phantoms. He was also the one behind the dark ritual that led to the creation of so many Phantoms.
* [[spoiler: CastAsAMask: His voice actor.]]
* TheChessmaster
* DegradedBoss: Clones of him appear in the Movie War but the Mages are each able to match one and Ogre [[CurbstompBattle devours three of them with no effort]]. Justified as they seem to just be mindless beasts compared to the original.
* ElectricTorture: His main use of his ShockAndAwe power.
* EnergyAbsorption
* EvilSoundsDeep
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: See LightIsNotGood; it's hinting to his identity as the White Wizard.]]
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: In his first appearance on the show, all we saw was his shadow behind a large white curtain.
** His human form was still subject to the "silhouette only" manner of appearance for a long time after that.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Case in point, even ''Medusa'' doesn't seem to know what his true plans are. Gremlin suggests it might have something to do with [[spoiler:the mythical PhilosophersStone]].
** His goal also seems to be to hold another Sabbath, the very same ritual that created so many Phantoms in the first place. He claims he can do this without an eclipse if he has enough Phantoms with him.
** And then Gremlin comes to the conclusion [[spoiler: that this ''isn't'' his true goal. It turns out his goal is to save Koyomi, his daughter.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler: Subverted; the Carbuncle Phantom was an artificially-created Phantom that Fueki implanted into himself. Fueki is ''still'' human... which just makes his lack of scruples even worse.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:Killing Medusa because they had finally made enough Wizards for Fueki's real plans.]]
* KillerRabbit: He is the Carbuncle Phantom.
* LightIsNotGood: His Phantom form is colored in white, and before that was only shown as just a silhouette bathed in light, but he's no good guy.
* ManipulativeBastard: "You're the only one I can trust, Medusa."
* [[spoiler:MysteriousBacker: He's the one generating the stones that become Haruto's Dragon Rings, and he actually wants them to fall into his hands. As it turns out, he's the White Wizard.]]
* NonActionBigBad: He has been extremely hands-off and left most of the grunt work to Phoenix and Medusa, then gets out in #30 to confront Gremlin personally over his release of Legion, and [[spoiler:he stops to chat with Gremlin]]. Even when Haruto tracks him down in #36, he just drains his mana to drive him off. [[spoiler:He's more active as the White Wizard.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Episode #22 reveals that he follows this trope, with him unhappy about Phoenix's rampage because he might kill another Gate, though lets him rampage when he realizes he just wants to fight Wizard and thus have either option (Wizard or Phoenix being defeated) go in his favor.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Has segments on his body that seem to be composed of some purple jewel.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A villainous example. In the Flame Dragon debut arc, he understood that Phoenix was fed up with the manipulative approach and rolled with it, directing him to an appropriate target for his wrath.
* TheReveal: Who is the Wiseman? [[spoiler:Fueki, the White Wizard.]]
* [[spoiler:TheUnfought: As Wiseman, Haruto only fought Fueki once. Their final confrontation had him in his White Wizard form.]]
** [[spoiler: ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' reveals [[CloningBlues that several Carbuncle Phantoms were created,]] which the Riders then fight. However, the Carbuncle Phantoms [[DegradedBoss are not as powerful as Wiseman.]]]]
* [[spoiler:RunningBothSides]]
* ShockAndAwe: Can generate electricity, as shown when he is dealing with Gremlin.

[[folder:Phoenix]]
->Live Actor: Atsumi

An energetic and unhinged Greater Phantom. He is the most powerful Phantom currently active, and uses his strength to intimidate lesser Phantoms into doing his bidding. He was born from Yugo Fujita, a quiet, hard-working man with a love for flowers.

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler: AndIMustScream: Subverted when Medusa turned him into stone, then played straight when Kamen Rider Wizard kicked him to the sun.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As a Greater Phantom, he is one of the most powerful.
* AxCrazy: He is rather unhinged, best shown with the way he almost beat the VictimOfTheWeek to death in #8. Medusa is hesitant to let him go after Gates because he's so psychopathic she's afraid he'll kill them! He also states repeatedly he's frustrated at having to wait to do go on the rampage.
* BackFromTheDead: Every time he gets destroyed by Wizard, he comes back... He's a Phoenix! [[AnimalMotifs What would you expect?]]
* {{Badass}}: Easily one of Wizard's most powerful opponents.
** BadassMustache: In human form only.
** BadassBeard: Well, Badass Goatee in human form once more.
** TookALevelInBadass: Everytime time he dies and comes back he is noticeably stronger. He doesn't just adapt--he becomes stronger in all areas. Best shown when it took ''three'' finishing moves in a row in Water Dragon Style to take him down a second time.
* BattleAura: After his third revival he's able to generate an aura of {{Hellfire}} to defend himself from attacks.
* {{BFS}}: Uses a large sword called Catastrophe in battle.
* BloodKnight: Flat out admits in #16 that he doesn't care about the Gate, he just wants to fight Haruto.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Medusa; he's the Brawn.
* TheBrute: With Wiseman as the BigBad, the violently psychopathic Phoenix is just the Phantoms' muscle.
* CameBackStrong: According to him, every time he revives he becomes stronger. He proves this in #16, by taking on Flame Dragon's FinishingMove which previously killed him without taking any damage.
** Worse? [[spoiler:By the third time, he's grown so powerful it takes him ''seconds'' to regenerate.]]
* ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:His defeat not only marks Haruto mastering Dragon's power fully with his All Dragon (an arc that began with his first battle with Phoenix), but the whole ordeal is presented in a very climactic light as well.]]
* CoDragons: With Medusa.
* EvilCounterpart:
** Can be seen as one to Wizard and all Riders in general; it's suit looks like what a HenshinHero would look like, he's red and gold to Wizard's default red and silver, he wants to spread despair while Wizard is the HopeBringer, and both use fire.
** He's also one to Nitoh. Both Phoenix and Nitoh care about something else rather than their objective (bringing about despair and stopping the latter respectively) and both are pretty boisterous about it. The only difference is that Nitoh stopped and began to focus on his objective while Phoenix went for his ambition [[spoiler:and landed in the sun]].
* [[spoiler:FateWorseThanDeath: Haruto, in his All Dragon form, sends Phoenix to the sun, where he will be trapped forever, stuck in a constant cycle of death and rebirth, whilst surrounded by burning hot flames every time he comes back. This is quite possibly the harshest fate a Rider has given to his arch-enemy in the history of the franchise, but considering he seems to be truly immortal, this is quite possibly the ''only'' way he could be beaten.]]
* ForTheEvulz: Admits that driving Gates into despair is mainly an excuse for him to spread havoc and destruction when Wiseman brings it up.
* [[spoiler:FireAndBrimstoneHell]]: His fate, for all intents and purposes. [[spoiler:Except it's far, ''far'' from Hell]].
* GeniusDitz: He is most definitely not a rocket scientist but in a straight up fight he's brilliant, able to block Wizard's {{Finishing Move}}s after only seeing them once.
* GenreSavvy: To a limited degree, it mostly comes from being a BloodKnight but he was the one who said that the Phantoms should have just killed Wizard on Day One.
* TheHeavy: Wiseman gives him and Medusa some direction, but otherwise leaves them to their own devices.
* [[spoiler:HurlItIntoTheSun]]: His final fate.
* [[InnocentFlowerGirl Innocent Flower Guy]]: Yugo, before becoming Phoenix. The life-threatening part was his high magic potential to become a Phantom.
* [[spoiler:IronicHell: The fire-powered Phantom obsessed with causing nonstop death and destruction is left [[SealedEvilInACan trapped in the sun]] where he will be killed over and over again forever by solar flames.]]
* {{Irony}}: In #20, Yugo's boss believed that he "wouldn't hurt anyone". Oh, if only he knew...
** [[spoiler: Also, in his first fight with Wizard, he boasted about his Hellfire. When Wizard finally beats him, Phoenix is stuck on the sun, surrounded by the hottest flames there are.]]
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Invoked by Phoenix himself. After being hit by a FinishingMove, he'll instantly figure out a way to block it. Ultimately subverted when Wizard finally defeats him. [[spoiler:Even if he could survive the sun's flames a second time, he isn't going anywhere]].
* KickedUpstairs: All things considered, while he was brought up to {{Co Dragon|s}} status, it's only so that he doesn't wind up killing Gates and destroying the place.
* KnightOfCerebus: While past Phantoms were definitely not nice. Phoenix is an AxCrazy monster who is definitely monstrous even by Phantom standards. The two episodes where he took center stage had a large amount of blood, gore and destruction for a toku show. To finish off his KnightOfCerebus status he is disturbingly brutal. He brutalizes anyone in his way. Best shown when he invades the hospital. He went out of his way to maul the hospital staff and attacked a person in a wheelchair. Also, unlike other Phantoms, he doesn't particularly care about driving Gates into despair, [[ForTheEvulz he just enjoys causing havoc and destruction.]]
** Any episode that he is the main villain of tends to lack the funny scenes that other episodes usually have.
* NoSell: To Medusa's TakenForGranite vision and most of Wizard's arsenal.
* PlayingWithFire: Not just any fire, according to him, it's {{Hellfire}}. It's a lot stronger than Haruto's.
* PowerGivesYouWings: After his fourth revival he gains the ability to make huge energy wings that almost vaporize Wizard.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type E.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Medusa's blue. (One of two)
* ResurrectiveImmortality: His special ability, he ''can't'' be killed for good and will simply revive stronger than before. In the end, the only way Haruto can permanently stop him is by [[spoiler:throwing him into the sun and trapping him there.]]
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan: Since he's immortal and ''can't'' die, Haruto is forced to throw him into the sun to defeat him once and for all, trapping him there forever.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: His CameBackStrong immortality is completely broken, if he was allowed to stay on the show he would have eventually become more powerful than the entire cast combined to the point of being a PhysicalGod.
* TemptingFate: Phoenix proudly proclaimed that even with Wizard's new Drago Timer, he can never destroy him fully. [[spoiler:So he didn't.]]
* TooPowerfulToLive: Seriously, when you think about it he would have eventually become a god far stronger than even the White Wizard if he was allowed to last the whole series.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: This, before Yugo fell to despair and became Phoenix.
* WouldHitAGirl: More like beat a woman an inch away from death.
** WouldHurtAChild: ...in order to psychologically destroy her son.

[[folder:Medusa]]
->Live Actor: Erina Nakayama

A cruel and calculating Greater Phantom. She has the ability to perceive Gates, humans with magical potential who can be transformed into Phantoms. She was born from a high-school girl named Misa Inamori.

!!!Tropes:

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: While she was a callous manipulator who would kill a pregnant woman without a second thought, she did it all for Wiseman, and was truly loyal to him in a way you would think only a NobleDemon could be. Her death at Wiseman's hands was truly heartbreaking given that he revealed that she served a lie all of her life as she died crying at the hands of the only person she ever cared about.]]
* AnimalBattleAura: She can create giant mana constructs in the shape of snakes to attack her opponents.
* {{Archenemy}}: Mayu's main goal in life is to kill her.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As a Greater Phantom, she's naturally one of the strongest Phantoms.
* {{Badass}}: Seems to be a requirement to be one of Wiseman's Dragons. She took out Haruto as easily as Phoenix did.
* BerserkButton: She doesn't like to be tricked by someone else. When Gremlin tricks her and Wizard into fighting each other without her knowledge, she outright tries to kill Gremlin.
* BoringButPractical: Her fighting style might not be as flashy and badass as Phoenix's, but with her ability to drain mana she can easily deprive the Kamen Riders of their {{Super Mode}}s, leaving them vulnerable.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Phoenix; she's the Brains.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Mayu's Abel.
* CoDragons: With Phoenix, then later (to her horror) with Gremlin.
** [[spoiler: DemotedToDragon: Gremlin is her superior now, so she is effectively TheDragon to TheDragon.]]
* ComplexityAddiction: Her FatalFlaw. There have been multiple times where she could have just killed Haruto. But nope, he has to die in some overcomplicated plot trying to save the VictimOfTheWeek.
** This does have some justification, though, as it's likely she'd want to at least try to drive Haruto to despair in order to break Dragon out of him. In later episodes she seems to have learned and tries to find ways to get Wizard out of the way with as little collateral as possible, like telling Manticore to finish Haruto when he's helpless or attempting to get the two Riders to fight and take each other out.
* CreepyMonotone: Speaks like this unless Gremlin/Sora is screwing around or Wiseman is complimenting her.
* DarkActionGirl: Kicks Haruto's ass with little effort.
* [[spoiler:DeathByDespair: While not explicitly stated, after being stabbed InTheBack by Wiseman, she crosses the DespairEventHorizon and instead of [[DefeatEqualsExplosion exploding like any other Phantom when killed]], she [[NoBodyLeftBehind crumbles into ash in a similar way that Gates who become Phantoms die.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: Anything for Wiseman.
* EnergyAbsorption: Able to drain mana with the use of her snake hairs.
* {{Expy}}: To [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Mezool]] ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS or Mezuru, Mezul]]). Both are blue and water themed as well as their personalities match.
* EvilGenius: Between her and Phoenix, she's usually the one to come up with the plans.
* [[spoiler: EvilTwin: Is this to Misa's sister Mayu.]]
** EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:She has the same amount of devotion towards the Wiseman as Mayu does for the White Wizard, with the added bonus that they're the same guy.]]
* GenreSavvy: In #40, she averts TransformationIsAFreeAction attacking Wizard right as he starts up the Drago Timer and would have killed him if Mayu hadn't intervened.
* TheHeavy: Wiseman gives her and Phoenix some direction, but otherwise leaves them to their own devices. Of the two, she seems to be in charge, if only because Phoenix is a PsychopathicManchild. She becomes the sole Heavy for a while between Phoenix's defeat and Gremlin's promotion.
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:The master manipulator spent the entire season being manipulated by Fueki as Wiseman, and for part of it by Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: Her first act upon becoming a Phantom was to kill her Gate's parents in an act of sadism. She dies when the closest thing to a father figure she has stabs her InTheBack while she was seriously wounded by her Gate's sister.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* LoveMartyr: In a sense she's this for Wiseman. She lives for his love and approval and follows downright suicidal orders just to gain simple compliments.
* MagicStaff: Fights with a scepter called [[MeaningfulName Arrogant]].
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: If Phoenix can't intimidate a Phantom into doing their job, she'll manipulate them into getting the job done. And it's clearly shown that she considers everyone around her a pawn, even her {{CoDragon|s}}, Phoenix. In episodes eight and nine she manipulates him like she manipulates Lesser Phantoms [[spoiler: but in #16, Phoenix calls her out on it]].
** She also pulls this trope on Nitoh and [[LetsYouAndHimFight gets him to fight Haruto]].
* {{Medusa}}
** GorgeousGorgon: Nitoh's first reaction to her human form was even "Whoa, she's a cutie". Her Phantom form isn't exactly hideous, either.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Her attempts to make a Phantom from Mayu blew up in her face because she didn't expect two things: Mayu using her HeroicWillpower to suppress the Phantom inside her, the reason being that she told her that she's just a monster pretending to be Misa, which led to said willpower, and the White Wizard himself appearing and teleporting Mayu away, presumably to make her an apprentice. Let's just say that in the near future, Medusa's gonna have to go through ''three'' Kamen Riders.]]
** [[spoiler: Subverted. Turns out everything was going according to plan, so she never fixed anything.]]
* OhCrap: Has a mixture of this and ThisIsGonnaSuck when she finds out [[spoiler:Wiseman promoted Gremlin and he's now her ''boss''.]]
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She's easily the sanest Phantom, lacking any of the insanities, besides her ComplexityAddiction, that plague the others (well, for someone who wants to kill people to create monsters) - but this trope shows considerably since her partner is an AxCrazy PsychopathicManchild and half of the Phantoms employed use their job as an excuse to beat up their target.
* PetTheDog: Her only humanizing trait is her genuine, loyalty and love for Wiseman.
* PsychoticSmirk: Flashes one worthy of Gremlin when she realizes that a Gate has a pregnant wife.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her more powerful spells are purple.
* PrehensileHair: Has very long hair in human form which becomes weaponized in Phantom form as sentient snake hair that can rip through [[MightyGlacier Land Style's]] Defend spells like they're made of wet tissue paper.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Phoenix and Gremlin's red.
* [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: Reveals to Mayu she killed their parents, in order to send her into despair and release a new Phantom. She almost got away with it too.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She is the only female phantom to appear [[spoiler:until Siren gets called]]. Despite the previous ritual have women too, this trope is played straight.
* TheStoic: Always keeps her cool and speaks in a CreepyMonotone unless...
** NotSoStoic: Sora/Gremlin really makes her lose her cool. Mainly because he annoys her rather than his usual schtick.
* TakenForGranite: She ''is'' based on Medusa.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: While she and Phoenix never formed a VillainousFriendship and were as different as night and day, they could at least get along with each other and form a cohesive unit. After Phoenix becomes... 'indisposed' then Gremlin starts meddling and Medusa ''hates'' every second of it. [[spoiler:Her OhCrap reaction to finding out he's been ''promoted'' to her boss]] speaks volumes.
* ThisCannotBe: Her reaction to Phoenix {{No Sell}}ing her TakenForGranite ability.
** And again, when [[spoiler: Mayu actually overcomes her despair and suppresses her Phantom.]]
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: [[spoiler:Her reaction to Gremlin/Sora becoming not only her [[CoDragons Co Dragon]] but her ''superior'', meaning she'll have to take orders from him.]]
* TranquilFury: After [[spoiler: Gremlin/Sora becomes her boss]] she spends all of her time in a state of barely controlled hatred and rage.
* TheVamp
* UndyingLoyalty: To Wiseman. She both shows it and enforces it in other Phantoms. [[spoiler:This is the reason why she goes after Phoenix for going rogue, and part of her annoyance with Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: Was one to Fueki.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: After countless setbacks, what it took for her to finally lose it was to be betrayed by the only person she cared about.]]
** [[spoiler:It started a bit earlier when she sees the latest Gate suppress his Phantom and finally decides to just wipe the Riders out.]]
* VillainousFriendship: Type III with Wiseman. Medusa worships the ground Wiseman walks on and seems to be in love with him, Wiseman doesn't give a crap and simply uses these feelings to better manipulate Medusa.
* WeHaveReserves: She really doesn't seem to care how many Phantoms die by Wizard's hands despite there being a limited amount of them.
* WellDoneDaughterGal: One way to see her relationship with Wiseman.
* WomenAreWiser: Especially if compared to Phoenix.
** Zigzagged if compared to Gremlin/Sora, however. Gremlin seems to be a PsychopathicManchild [[spoiler: and we got to see it true in #35]], but this is the ManChild that not only tricked Medusa, but also [[spoiler:Wiseman into making him the sole [[TheDragon Dragon]], with Medusa serving under Sora as the result.]]
* [[spoiler:WomanScorned: Of a partner instead of her significant other variant, where she got tricked by Gremlin. Subverted when her attacks couldn't even reach him.]]
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Gets offed by Wiseman/Fueki mainly because she's finished doing what he wants: creating more mages for his master plan.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sora Takigawa/Gremlin]]
->Live Actor: Takahisa Maeyama

A strangely playful Phantom with an unclear alignment. A sometimes-ally to Wiseman's forces; he seems to have an interest in Haruto increasing his power, [[spoiler:such as giving Section Zero the stone for Hurricane Dragon or giving Koyomi the magic stone for the fourth and final Dragon Style]], but is otherwise manipulating all parties involved for some reason. He was born from [[spoiler:(or in fact, ''is'') a serial killer named]] Sora Takigawa who worked as a hairdresser, and is currently trying to get close to Wiseman in order to get some information from him. Unlike most Phantoms, [[spoiler:Sora considers himself a different case as he has kept all of his gate's traits and personality, making him feel more human than Phantom; and in fact wants to regain his lost humanity.]]

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Everyone hates his guts to different degrees. Phoenix can barely stand him, the only reason why he's still alive is because he has blackmail on Wiseman, Medusa wants him dead, and every heroic character hates seeing him, and treats him with complete disdain. This hate is completely justified on multiple degrees. One degree is that he is generally annoying to them, the other degree is that he's a third party and nearly screwed up Wiseman's plans by freeing Legion, and the third degree, the ones that the heroes are on, is that [[spoiler:he used to be a SerialKiller before being a Phantom... and still is]].
** By [[spoiler: #50, practically everyone wants him dead for his heinous actions]].
* AmbiguouslyEvil: He was this for a long time, as he has his own agenda apart from Wiseman's, and helped Haruto and trolled his fellow Phantoms as often as he did the reverse. #34 muddied the waters further, having him claim that he kept his humanity, before #35 settled the issue: [[spoiler:human or Phantom, he's still a monster.]]
* AndThenWhat: Is the first Phantom to wonder aloud why they're trying to hold another Sabbath on Wiseman's orders.
* ArchEnemy: He has become this to Haruto after being outed as a [[spoiler: SerialKiller]]. Haruto attacks him with much more hatred and malice than he did Phoenix.
* [[spoiler: AxCrazy: #35 establishes that he's just as nuts as Phoenix, he's just better at hiding it.]]
* {{Badass}}: Very badass when you think it over. [[spoiler:Unlike other Phantoms he wasn't preprogramed with any skills and his power set is rather weak but through pure cunning, willpower, sheer determination, and brass tacks he takes down the White Wizard all by himself through his own efforts. He'd be a MagnificentBastard if he wasn't so annoying.]]
* BadBoss: Hinted at when Raum feared failing him. Confirmed when he let Slyphi die after he had outlived his usefulness with his trademark smile on his face.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:Yes, Fueki was sympathetic, but he was also a self-centered mass murderer and EntitledBastard, there was no way that Haruto could have come up with a morally correct solution to deal with him. Good thing Gremlin came along and sorted all those pesky moral problems by killing Fueki, am I right?]]
* BatmanGambit: A master of this trope. All of his plans rely on predicting how a person will act based on their personality, from Phoenix's impulsiveness, Medusa's loyalty, to the Kamen Riders ChronicHeroSyndrome.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his silly personality and playful attitude, when he gets promoted to [[CoDragons CoDragon]] [[spoiler:and Medusa's superior]], his plans turn out to be surprisingly crafty and deadly compared to Phoenix and Medusa's. [[spoiler:He's also even ''more'' AxCrazy than Phoenix with a ''huge'' body count.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing. Twice over. at first he seems like the Phantoms AffablyEvil TokenGoodTeammate but then he's revealed to be [[spoiler: TheSociopath and a SerialKiller before he was a Phantom, but at least he follows PragmaticVillainy, right? Wrong, it's later revealed that he beats up little girls for fun and is just a sadistic prick underneath his superficial charm.]]
* CampStraight: This becomes a plot point...
* {{Catchphrase}}: A very Engrish-y "Hello~" with a little wave.
* CharacterDevelopment: Inverted. As his character arc unfolds we learn more and more about who he was [[spoiler: up until TheReveal where he shows what a monster he is and begins to drop his MaskOfSanity showing what an ass he really is. This is justified, because Sora is a low-functioning sociopath, and is incapable of developing as a character.]]
* TheChessmaster[=/=]IndyPloy: It's never revealed if Sora had everything planned out from the start, if he was making things it up as he went along, or making calculated risks, guesses, and gambits, or if he ever played XanatosSpeedChess.
* ChromaticArrangement: Green, which contrasts nicely with Phoenix's red and Medusa's blue.
* CoolSword: Originally his Rapture blades, [[spoiler:but after taking out the White Wizard he switches out for the much cooler Hamel Cane.]]
* DarkChick: At first, but he defies it later on.
* DeathGlare: Gives one to Argus when he tries to attack a Gate that he wants to protect...[[spoiler:so he could kill her himself.]]
* [[spoiler: DeliberateInjuryGambit: Provokes the White Wizard into stabbing him in #50 so he can steal the Hamel Cane, thus letting him take the Philosopher's Stone.]]
* {{Determinator}}: After all of his plans fall apart instead of whining he drops being a SissyVillain and shows some serious balls when he risks himself in direct confrontation with the [[WorldsStrongestMan White Wizard]].
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: [[spoiler:He successfully blackmailed Wiseman with unknown information, and with it, became Wiseman's highest-ranking [[TheDragon Dragon]]. That said, Wiseman is only using the deal to control Sora, and has no intention of upholding his end of the bargain.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler:He killed a girl just because she rejected him. And continues killing similar girls with black hair and white dresses.]]
* DoNotCallMePaul: His name isn't Gremlin, it's Sora.
* TheDragon: Not at first, but he worms his way into being one of Wiseman's lieutenants.
** CoDragons: Alongside Medusa. In fact, [[spoiler:he's her superior.]]
** DragonWithAnAgenda: As far as we can tell, he's playing everyone against each other. See HiddenAgendaVillain.
** [[spoiler:TheStarscream: Once he realizes Wiseman won't give him the Philosopher's Stone.]]
*** [[spoiler:DragonAscendant: Kills Wiseman[=/=]Fueki and becomes Haruto's final opponent.]]
* DualWielding: Wields twin swords called [[AllThereInTheManual Rapture]] in battle, which together look like a pair of scissor blades...
** SwordBeam
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: Gave up [[spoiler:the Land Dragon stone]] with little to no explanation. The next episode has him pleased that Haruto's achieved all four Dragon Styles, though ''why'' was never made clear.
** Episode 34 reveals [[spoiler: that he was also the one who supplied the Hurricane Dragon stone to Kizaki's boss as well.]]
* EnigmaticMinion
* EvilCounterpart: Sora is this to Haruto. [[spoiler:Both of them clung onto their humanities after the Sabbath, but through differing means. The driving force of what sets these two apart is what they ''do'' with their new found change. Whereas Haruto uses his Phantom to help save people from other Phantoms, Sora wants to get rid of it and become a human again]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: Whenever he gets really serious his voice noticeably deepens.
* EvilLaugh: An extremely psychotic one has replaced his giggles by Episode 42.
* EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler: Sora is this to his own Phantom. Phantoms are twisted evil parodies of their Gate. But Sora was such a monster that there was nothing that could make him worse so he got to stay in control.]]
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: He's the love child of [[Series/KamenRiderFourze JK]] and [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters Enter.]]
** After Episode 35, you can add [[spoiler: SweeneyTodd]] and [[spoiler: Ted Bundy]] to that list.
* [[spoiler: FauxAffablyEvil]]: [[spoiler: He has this charm about him that makes him likeable, but it only highlights his own madness and insanity when you know the real him.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Of sorts; he has a tendency to call Phantoms by their Gates' names. He also prefers to called by his own Gate's name.
* FlashStep: Displays an ability similar to this, often using it to leap out of reach of someone he's approached and to run on walls.
* {{Foil}}: To Haruto since [[spoiler: he claims to still have his human heart even though his body changes into a phantom, making his a human trapped in a Phantom body as opposed to a Phantom trapped in a human's body like Haruto. In the final episode, he even tells Haruto he's fighting for his own hope.]]
* FriendlyEnemy: Due to [[WildCard his nature]], he is sometimes this to Haruto, doing such things as [[spoiler:giving him the Land Dragon stone]] or wishing him luck in a coming fight. For the same reasons, he's sometimes a pretty nasty enemy.
* [[spoiler:FromNobodyToNightmare: Started out as a normal guy who then became a dangerous SerialKiller. He then [[OneWingedAngel became a Phantom]], becoming even more dangerous.]]
* GigglingVillain
* GripingAboutGremlins
* HiddenAgendaVillain: He's running his own plan apart from Wiseman's. What's odd is that Wiseman finds out and ''lets'' him do it.
** He later tells Medusa that his dream [[spoiler: is to use the PhilosophersStone to become human - Wiseman knows he wants the Stone and is using it to ensure his cooperation.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: The White Wizard gored him through and pinned him to a tree, but thanks to his trademark determination he survived.]]
* TheInformant: All of the Riders' actual knowledge comes from his gloating.
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: As a normal upstanding civilian he couldn't get a girl. But as TheSociopath he can easily get girls to fall for him when now, he only wants to either hurt or kill them.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Unlike [[ForTheEvulz Phoenix]], his idea of fun amounts to 'whatever seems the most fun at the time.' Naturally, this means [[WildCard who he's impeding at any given moment]] may change at the drop of a hat depending on whether he's in the mood to antagonize the good guys or {{Troll}} his own allies.
** [[spoiler: ForTheEvulz: After TheReveal, it's shifted to this trope where he becomes a monster just to get his sick kicks.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He hides it very well, but by Episode #46 it has become very obvious that Sora/Gremlin's faux affability just enhances how much of a douchebag he is.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Does this to Haruto and Koyomi in Episode #46 [[ForTheEvulz just for shits and giggles]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:His killing of Fueki can be seen as this for some people, which would explain why his next action would be to kill his daughter too]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: In the episode #51, after receiving a Rider Kick empowered within the Philosopher's Stone from Haruto.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: A more subtle example than most. At first, he didn't particularly do anything evil, but once he gets promoted and starts being put in charge of sending out Phantoms, his plans are more competent than Medusa's, almost never revolving around the simple 'let fear of death drive you to despair' method. Then there's the reveal that [[spoiler:he's actually a SerialKiller, and has been since he was human.]] With this reveal, [[CerebusRetcon a lot of his comical traits suddenly become far more frightening]].
** After TheReveal his personality has become DarkerAndEdgier as well. He speaks in a lower voice, doesn't skip around as much, his movements are noticeably sharper, has begun to threaten the Lesser Phantoms under him if they don't do a good job, and the most jarring change of all: he has stopped giggling when he appears onscreen, making his appearances far more foreboding and menacing. His general attitude would also remind one of a more threatening straight up [[TheDragon Dragon]] role, rather than his original quirky DarkChick personality.
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler: After TheReveal, he temporarily drops his MaskOfSanity evolving from a GigglingVillain into this trope.]]
** By Episode 42 he has replaced his silly giggles with a downright insane laugh to herald his appearances.
* MadeOfIron: He ''survived'' an attack from the White Wizard when he was actually trying to kill Sora/Gremlin.
** [[spoiler: He later survived being ''impaled'' by Fueki's Hamel Cane.]]
* ManChild
** [[spoiler:PsychopathicManChild: A Type C.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: He's started out manipulating Haruto, Medusa, Phoenix, and Wiseman. And he went all out from there playing everyone like a fiddle.
* [[spoiler: MaskOfSanity: Just like real life sociopaths Gremlin/Sora is able to pretend to act like a normal, rational person.]]
* NervesOfSteel: No matter how badly he's beaten or how often his plans fall apart he never has a VillainousBreakdown and instead just changes gears.
* NiceHat
* NoNameGiven: At first, in his debut.
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to invoke this on Haruto. Haruto tells him to shut it.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: Was a human SerialKiller who, unlike most other Phantoms, ''became'' his Phantom.]]
** [[spoiler:Later gains another one, Evolved Gremlin, who becomes the Final Boss.]]
* PlayingBothSides: He started out playing ''three'' sides.
* PlotHole: It's never explained how Sora learned about the Philosopher's Stone -- Wiseman's biggest secret, or Wiseman's secret itself. Knowing both of these things are vital to his real agenda so it makes a few things make no sense.
* PragmaticVillainy: In the beginning he was like this, [[spoiler: but as he gets closer to the Philosopher's Stone, as a low-functioning sociopath, his poor impulse control overwhelms him and he begins to KickTheDog a lot more.]]
* [[spoiler: PinocchioSyndrome: He tells Medusa his dream is to become human.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Medusa's blue. (One of two)
** Oddly, he often serves as the blue to a Lower Phantom (Weretiger)'s red.
* [[spoiler:SerialKiller: Was one before becoming a Phantom. To be specific, a Hedonist one with Revenge as a motive, becoming a Supernatural one as well after becoming a Phantom.]]
* ShearMenace: His twin swords look like scissor blades. [[spoiler:For good reason, his favorite human murder weapon is a pair of scissors.]]
* SixthRanger: For the Phantoms, but he seems to be...
** SixthRangerTraitor: ...This. [[spoiler:And he is after stealing the Hamel Cane from Fueki.]]
* SmugSmiler: He always has a know-it-all grin on his face.
** PsychoticSmirk: As he reveals his true colors his smirk becomes less funny and more insane looking, with the transformation being complete in Episode 42.
* [[spoiler: StartOfDarkness: His flashback implies that he starts killing long-haired women after being dumped by the first victim.]]
* StealthHiBye: A master of this trope.
* [[spoiler: TheSociopath: Rather disturbingly like a real life sociopath akin to Ted Bundy, he is able to charm young woman into trusting him so he can kill them without interference and while around others can pretend to be a normal likeable guy. As the plot unfolds Sora has shown that he is an actual sociopath. He shows a grandiose sense of self worth about himself, has a superficial charm that makes certain people like and trust him instantly, has poor impulse control announcing his plans just to get a rise out of people even when it threatens his position, is easily bored and comes up with complicated scenarios to amuse himself or hurt people, is a natural manipulator, and has a complete LackOfEmpathy outside of being a ManipulativeBastard or {{Jerkass}}.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:He's the one who informs Nitoh about the Sabbath and drove him to become his own spanner]].
* ThatManIsDead: Subverted, he's notably the ''only'' Phantom to insist on being called by his Gate's name, even to Wiseman himself.
** [[spoiler: This is because he claims that he still has his humanity, even though his body is that of a Phantom. Too bad his human self is as bad as any Phantom.]]
* [[spoiler:TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: While he is a tad strange, everyone who knew him from before his transformation thought he was a normal, nice guy and never suspected he was a SerialKiller. This is actually a rather realistic depiction of a SerialKiller.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Gremlin thought it would be funny to attack and hold Koyomi hostage in front of a helpless Haruto. He ended up pissing off Fueki--the ''White Wizard''--which is probably one of the last things one should ever do.]]
** [[spoiler:The fact that the White Wizard is also his boss, Wiseman, only further solidifies this.]]
*** It makes him seem even dumber when you realize that [[spoiler:Gremlin knew Wiseman was the White Wizard.]]
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: [[spoiler:It's implied that he got to keep his soul because ''he was already a monster.'' Assuming he had a soul in the first place.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Has a fondness for bubblegum.
* [[spoiler:TrickBoss: Despite being a live-action television series, he comes across as this.]]
* {{Troll}}: Best shown when he tricks Haruto into a fight with Medusa...then laughs his head off at ''both'' of them. While he tells her it was to dispose of Haruto, the fact he didn't bother telling her that and the sheer glee he got out of it implies he just did it to annoy her.
* WeHaveReserves: He'll send as many Phantoms as he needs too their deaths at the Riders hands as long as it gets him closer to his unknown goal.
* WildCard: As mentioned above, at separate times he's helped and wished Haruto luck, favored a traitor's methods, and ratted on said traitor anyway. It's hard to tell just whose side, if anyone's, he's on.
** Invoked in his human form with the playing card motif his outfit has.
* [[spoiler:WomanScorned / {{Yandere}}]]: A rare male example: this was his actual personality when he was the normal human Sora Takigawa, [[spoiler: which leads to his StartOfDarkness when he flipped out, as detailed in previous examples]].
* WouldHitAGirl: He hits Koyomi a couple of times just because he can.
* XanatosSpeedChess: It's either this or the IndyPloy, a lot of his plans are never explained.
* YouMonster: [[spoiler:After being mortally wounded, he says that Haruto steals hope from people, and asks why Haruto calls himself a wizard. Haruto responds by saying Gremlin lost his soul long ago and that he doesn't consider him a person. Gremlin's response? "You got me there".]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Lesser Phantoms]]

!! Minotauros
->Live Actor: RIKIYA

The first Lesser Phantom that Wizard fights onscreen. While disguised as Rinko's partner Amino, Minotauros attempted to drive her to despair.

!!!Tropes
* AnAxeToGrind: Minotauros' main weapon is a large halberd.
* ALoadOfBull
* UseYourHead: Attempts to bull-rush Wizard during the fight. It doesn't quite work as well as he hoped.

!!Hellhound
->Live Actor: Takeshi Kongochi

The second Lesser Phantom Wizard fights. Hellhound attempted to drag Shunpei into despair by tricking him into thinking he possessed magical powers. Possesses the ability to breathe fire and hide in and travel through shadows. Born from a TV presenter named Kazuo Tajima.

!!!Tropes
* CastingAShadow: Can hide in, and travel through shadows.
* PlayingWithFire: Can breathe both streams of flame and explosive bolts.
* NotQuiteDead: Seems to go down in one episode like the previous phantom, but [[HesJustHiding he got away to safety]].
* SmarmyHost
* TeleportSpam: Uses this during his fight with Wizard, but along as long as he has access to any form of shadow.

!!Caitsith
->Live Actor: Bernard Ackah

The third Lesser Phantom Wizard encounters. Caitsith is a lazy Phantom that is tasked with driving a pianist to despair. However, he'd much rather sleep than do his job. Possesses formidable speed and agility.

!!!Tropes
* AffablyEvil: Almost to PunchClockVillain level. Seems cheerful and carefree... for a demon charged with bringing despair.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Can turn his forearms into swords.
* CatsAreMean: Caitsith's idea of driving his victim to despair? Cut off his hands!
* GetBackHereBoss
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted. He is black, but his personality is miles away from being scary.
* SuperSpeed

!!Gnome
->Live Actor: Yoshiyuki Kanayasu

The fourth Lesser Phantom Wizard deals with. Gnome works as a sommelier, a skill enhanced by his unnaturally keen sense of smell. Gnome is sent after a female con artist who managed to scam three of Wizard's friends in addition to a rich young man. Has the ability to tunnel rapidly through dirt.

!!!Tropes
* DishingOutDirt: Can cause cave-ins, tunnel rapidly and pull targets into the ground with ease.
* GentlemanSnarker: Has a very snobbish demeanor when interacting with other people, even ''Phoenix and Medusa''.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Type 2. Serves as his primary melee weapon.
* TheyHaveTheScent: Is able to track his target by scent.
** HoistByHisOwnPetard: And it was his sensitive nose that partly did him in thanks to the Smell Ring.
* WickedCultured
* WineIsClassy: Is first seen smelling and sampling some fine wines when Medusa and Phoenix come calling.

!!Gargoyle
->Live Actor: Kenji Yamachi

The fifth Lesser Phantom Wizard faces, Gargoyle disguises himself as a blue-collar maintenance worker. Gargoyle originally attempted to drag down a high school student (and son of Agent Kizaki's late partner) into despair, but failed when the boy left town. Now that he's returned, Gargoyle seeks to finish the job. Has the power to turn himself into an immobile and nearly indestructible statue.

!!!Tropes
* OurGargoylesRock
* StoneWall: Turtling varient; his self-petrification lets him block most of Wizard's attacks.
* TakenForGranite: Self-Inflicted and reversable.

!!Valkyrie
->Live Actor: Isao Sugibayashi

The sixth lesser Phantom Wizard fights. He was born from Kiritani, a manager of a Japanese sweets department when he succumbed to despair. This phantom was tasked by Medusa specifically to ruin a boss' sweets shop to being him despair.

!!!Tropes
* BladeOnAStick: Valkyrie's main weapon.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Acts quite polite, but he's introduced when he explains to Phoenix and Medusa that he was late because he was busy "adjusting the jaw" of his human boss.
* {{Flight}}
* GenderFlipped: Normally, Valkyries are female, but this phantom came from a man. Who doesn't even [[DudeLooksLikeALady look like a girl]]!
* ProfessionalButtkisser: Part of his FauxAffablyEvil facade. While he is trying to kiss up to [[CoDragons Phoenix and Medusa]], it;s all an act around anyone else.
* SpamAttack: Can fire a barrage of green energy blasts from a distance.

!!Lizardman
->Live Actor: Keisuke Ueda

The first Phantom Haruto encountered after the sacrifice, the Phantom is easily driven off by the White Wizard when it tried to kill Haruto. He was born from a student filmmaker. Haruto later runs into him and initially mistakes him for a Gate (as he was running from Medusa at the time), only to have to continue the act in order to keep up the spirits of an actual Gate, a girl that had been inspired to become an actress by being in one of his films.

!!!Tropes
* AxCrazy: Like Phoenix, he likes to kill people to the point where Medusa worries Gates will be killed in the process.
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen in #2's flashback, attacking Haruto in the aftermath of the ritual.
* {{Cyclops}}: Assuming the orange dot on his head is his eye.
* DirtyCoward: When it came to fighting anyone he thought was stronger than him, he would resort to hiding, running, or trickery. He's been on the run from Medusa for quite some time because of this, and the only reason he ever fought Wizard head-on was because Haruto saw him transform.
* {{Expy}}: Looks somewhat like an organic [[MobileSuitGundam M'Quve's YMS-15 Gyan]], down to his using a sword.

!!Manticore

The eighth Phantom Wizard fought until he was poisoned by his stinger. He is finally defeated by Kamen Rider Beast.

!!!Tropes
* BigCreepyCrawlies: He looks all bug rather than part insect, part lion.
* BaldOfEvil: In human form.
* BewareMyStingerTail
* DeathDealer: Can use his cards as weapons, ala [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Gambit]].
* EvilCounterpart: In a way, with Kamen Rider Beast, as both have a lion as part of their motifs (at least the manticore aspect for the phantom's case) and both have a pair of big green eyes.
* PoisonousPerson: His ability to lethally poison people is the driving force of his episode.
* SmugSnake: Thinking his poison makes him unstoppable, he becomes insufferable after getting in a lucky shot against Wizard, [[BullyingADragon with him talking smack to Phoenix,]] and telling off Medusa when she tells him to just kill Wizard when he's weak instead of gloating.
** JerkassHasAPoint: The ''only'' flaw in Manticore's plan was Beast, which nobody, not even Wiseman, seemed to know about. On top of that, it made sense from a villainous standpoint to want to see the enemy who had been kicking your collective asses suffer, and if Haruto's poisoning had been slow enough, he could have been forced to helplessly watch other Gates turn into Phantoms, which could easily have pushed him over the Despair Event Horizon and unleashed Dragon (giving the Phantoms a very powerful ally), which would be impossible if they'd just killed him.

!!Hydra

The ninth Phantom Wizard faces, who targets an artist who has lost his inspiration. He was born from a scuba diver.

!!!Tropes

* BladeOnAStick
* CombatTentacles
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He attacks Haruto, knowing that he would have the Gate run for it...right into his army of Ghouls who enable the source of the Gate's hope to be destroyed. It worked perfectly up until Beast showed up.
* MasterOfNone: He's easily the weakest Phantom Haruto ever fought. Even in the water where he's a LightningBruiser he was still pathetic. All he really had going for him was being smart enough to come up with a decent plan.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills

!! Beelzebub

The tenth Phantom Wizard fought to protect a targeted housewife.

!!!Tropes

* {{Badass}}: He's a ''Lesser Phantom'' that can fight on par with Haruto while he's in a Dragon Style, and that's ''before'' he busts out his SpaceMaster powers!
** BadassInANiceSuit: In human form.
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Gets this twice, both times due to being hit with the White Wizard's Explosion Ring.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: He can make normally kind people into abusive dicks.
* CombatPragmatist: He uses his SpaceMaster powers to redirect Wizard's attacks to hit Beast.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While he likes to drag his victims' suffering out ForTheEvulz, the second he faces a threat to his plans, he solves it by stabbing it with the least amount of fuss possible.
* {{Familiar}}: How he makes people BrainwashedAndCrazy.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Treats his victims' suffering as though he's conducting an orchestra, and is always softspoken and calm despite being one of the most sadistic Phantoms seen thus far.
* GratuitousGerman
* IAmNotLeftHanded: He didn't reveal his SpaceMaster powers until Beast showed up to help Wizard and Wizard went Flame Dragon.
* KnightOfCerebus: He's extremely competent for a MonsterOfTheWeek, and his EvilPlan is disturbingly cruel. He first brainwashes all of his victim's friends into abandoning her, then he brainwashes Shunpei into physically assaulting her. Then to put the icing on the cake he makes her ''husband'' physically assault her. Oh, and he can also kick Haruto's ass. This guy is a certifiable nightmare.
* ManipulativeBastard
* SlasherSmile
* SoftSpokenSadist: Acts perfectly serene as he ruins a woman's life. He even outright states he likes drawing out the suffering he causes just ForTheEvulz.
* SpaceMaster: Can make portals that redirect attacks.
* ThinkingUpPortals

!! Weretiger

Born from a bodybuilder when he fell into despair, he is tasked by Medusa to turn Nitoh's grandmother into a phantom. He is finally defeated and his mana consumed by Beast.

!!! Tropes

* BerserkButton: He ''really'' doesn't like to be referred to by his Gate's name, as seen when Sora's FirstNameBasis habit kicks in.
* ChestBlaster: With explosives coming out from its eye-like [[TorpedoTits nipples]].
* PantheraAwesome: Having the tiger aspect of the weretiger.
* SuperStrength
* ThreateningShark: Resembles a tiger shark, for whatever reason.

!! Spriggan

Born from a security guard, he was ordered to turn a archeology professor into a Phantom.

!!! Tropes

* {{Catchphrase}}: A threatening "You really ought to be more careful."
* DirtyCop
* {{Expy}}: A split-colored being with a sword and shield. Better yet, the shield holsters the sword. Sounds quite similar to [[Series/KamenRiderDouble another Rider]], right?
* FatBastard: In human form.
* TheFairFolk
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: [[AllThereInTheManual Named "Riddle".]]
* ShoulderCannon: Or the magical equivalent, at least.

!! Legion

Born from a man named "Naitou", he is apparently so powerful and disobedient that Wiseman keeps him chained up.

!!! Tropes
* AxCrazy: Like Phoenix and Lizardman, he had no interests in turning Gates into Phantoms and would rather wreck people's minds [[ForTheEvulz for fun]], putting them into a coma in the process. Unlike those two, Wiseman took no chances and sealed him away.
* BladeOnAStick: Fights with a double-edged halberd.
* {{Badass}}: Beast, Chimera, and Dragon all teamed up to take him down...and ''lost''.
* CatchPhrase: "''[[GratuitousEnglish Exciting]]''."
* {{Cyclops}}: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] for this case. It is unclear whether he has one large eye or many eyes patterned around his face.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: The make-up department went all out to make this guy as creepy looking as possible.
* EnergyBall: His long range attack, and its very powerful.
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller: Downplayed--he killed Wizardragon and rendered Haruto powerless.]]
* [[spoiler: JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Has the ability to enter people's underworlds.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: You thought [[SoftSpokenSadist Beelzebub]] was bad? Legion is even worse than him!
* LeanAndMean: He's disturbingly thin in human form.
* ManInWhite: In human form.
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Enjoys entering people's minds and tearing them apart from the inside out. We only see the full process ''once'' with Haruto, and it's horrifying.]]
* PsychoForHire
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: [[spoiler:Is on the receiving end against Wizard's [[SuperMode Infinity Style]], who just stands there taking his slashes [[NoSell without even flinching]]. The 'Uh Oh' part comes when Legion's Halberd ''breaks'' on Wizard's armor.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes glow red when he gets serious.
* SpaceMaster: His halberd can cut through normal space just as well as well as Underworld space.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: His targets of choice seem to not be Gates, but good people in general. Three examples are a guitarist with an expressive song, a woman who helped an elderly and [[spoiler:Haruto showing his HeroicResolve.]] By being put into a coma, the victims ended up being this.
* SealedEvilInACan: Wiseman locked him up due to how powerful and AxCrazy he is.
* SuperpowerLottery: [[spoiler: He can just walk into peoples Underworlds and destroy them. If he followed Wiseman's agenda there would be ''a lot'' more Phantoms running around.]]

!! Bogy

This phantom was tasked to employ a group of people with a million dollar a day pay. This way, Medusa could identify who among the workers is the Gate(s). After that, he would bring them all to an abandoned building to scare them into despair, though he was stopped by the heroes in the nick of time. [[spoiler: Or not.]]

!!! Tropes

* [[spoiler:AsteroidsMonster: After Wizard in Infinity Style destroys his main body, Bogy was reduced to 6 pieces that eventually matured into 6 Bogy clones, though they seemed weaker than the first Bogy.]]
* BladeOnAStick: Yet another Phantom that uses a spear.
* [[spoiler: CameBackStrong: An odd version, after dying, his ghosts gain luck-based powers.]]
* IntangibleMan
* [[spoiler:[[LuckBasedMission Luck-Based]] PuzzleBoss: Turns out, he has the ability to change one's luck, and he used it to his advantage every time Wizard fought him. But since this is a toku show, his luck finally runs out.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* [[PlantAliens Plant Ghost Demon]]
* ObviouslyEvil: It was a miracle anyone trusted him in human form. He dressed in a black overcoat, was hunched over like Igor, looked shifty, and spoke in a deep, forboding voice.
* [[spoiler:OnlyMostlyDead: As noted by Gremlin himself, after being defeated by Kamen Rider Wizard the first time.]]
* StoneWall: Almost comically slow, but his ability to become intangible makes him a tough combatant.
* [[spoiler:SuicidalOverconfidence: The last Bogy thought he was would avoid Beast Hyper's [[FinishingMove Mirage Shooting]] just by standing in place. He didn't count on the fact that said move shoots Chimera himself as the attack.]]
* [[spoiler:WindsOfDestinyChange]]

!! Argus

Born from a photographer, he was instructed by Medusa to target a model. He was stopped by Sora, though, [[spoiler:but that's because he wanted to be the one doing that job instead.]]

!!! Tropes

* ExtraEyes: Which he can detach to attack from a distance.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere
* EyeBeams: UpToEleven, given all of his extra eyes.
* LightEmUp

!! Raum

It disguises itself as [[spoiler:a Myna Bird owned by a Gate it spies on.]] It seemed to be helping the Gate instead, [[spoiler: but in reality, it was tasked to frame him for arson]].

!!!Tropes

* AmbiguousDisorder: Being described as an oddball as well as not appearing to be paying attention to Sora speaking to him, even in human form!
* {{Animorphism}}: It may look like to be born from a bird at first, but that's the Phantom being able to shape shift into an animal.
* BladeOnAStick: Phantoms really like spears, don't they?
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: The real Raum is a Great Earl of Hell.
* EyeBeams: He can fire purple energy blasts out of his eyes
* FeatheredFiend
* [[spoiler: {{Irony}}: Sora threatened him, possibly with death should he screwed up. But getting busted and exposing his true nature to the Gate precisely brought him to despair!]]
* JackOfAllStats: Very fast, can fly, has a ranged attack, and is competent in close combat.
* ManipulativeBastard: A very, very good one. Given that he only needed to use one word to manipulate his Gate.

!! Bahamut

!!!Tropes

* AlmightyJanitor: He's a Lesser Phantom, but his power level is somewhere around Phoenix's level after his fourth revival.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: And he can back it up.
* {{Badass}}: Previously Dragon Time was the same words as 'death sentence' to a Phantom (not named Medusa). Not this guy. [[spoiler:While Infinity Style finally defeats him rather easily, but he deserves credit for being the first Phantom to take ''multiple'' slashes of Wizard's Shining Strike to take out and fending off a few of them.]]
** BadassBandolier: In human form.
* BareFistedMonk
* BloodKnight
* BladeBelowTheShoulder
* BulletCatch: A key part of his EstablishingCharacterMoment to show that he wasn't just a normal MonsterOfTheWeek.
* ChallengeSeeker: In his first appearance he beat Haruto and was about to do the normal 'let the fear of death drive you into despair' plot, but stopped halfway through because he thought it was too boring and decided that a more personal DespairEventHorizon would be funner.
* FatBastard: In human form
* TheJuggernaut: Whichever form, mantle or gimmick the riders tried, neither of them work. [[spoiler: That's until Kamen Rider Wizard changed to Infinity Style, but even that required ''multiple'' hits from his [[FinishingMove Shining Strike]] to destroy Bahamut.]]
* LeanAndMean: In Phantom form
* LightningBruiser
* SociopathicSoldier: Given his composed personality, human clothing, and general attitude, he comes off as a Type II.
* SwordBeam

!! Sylphi

Sora tasked this phantom to bring a boy to despair. [[spoiler:He successfully fulfilled the task by sabotaging he boy's bike trick to his neighbor, only for the boy to awaken as a wizard instead.]]

!!!Tropes

* AnAxeToGrind
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:He has effectively brought his target to despair in a short while!]]
** [[spoiler: NiceJobFixingItVillain Only for his target to awaken as a wizard.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Like the Phantom who sent him, his quirky personality only serves to enhance how morally bankrupt he is.
* BlowYouAway
** RazorWind
* {{Camp}}: Tempting as it is to put him as CampGay, it is not known whether phantoms have any sexuality at all (other than Siren exploiting her charm ability on males).
* ConfusionFu
* {{Expy}}: Similar in both appearance and behavior to the [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Spider Fangire]]. Coincidentally, [[spoiler:the phantom he would have helped birth had a spider motif to it]].
* TheFairFolk: He's actually rather similar to how real fairies acted in mythology. With his faux affability and penchant for screwing people over.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* {{Flight}}
* FourEyesZeroSoul: In human form.
* [[spoiler:HearingVoices: Unique case where he can listen to air vibrations to listen to people far away.]]
* GenderFlipped: Like Valkyrie, the Sylphs are usually female.
* GratuitousEnglish: Lots of it, but "Hey, hey, hey!" seems to be his catchphrase.
* LightningBruiser
* ManipulativeBastard: Continuing the tradition of Sora's Phantoms specializing in emotional manipulation. He uses a poor kids PuppyLove to send him past the DespairEventHorizon.
* SissyVillain: Unlike Valkyrie's GenderFlipped example, Sylphi's human for has long hair, fingernails painted blue, walk in an effeminate manner and talks as if he's flirting with his target.
* SuperSenses: Hearing for this case, though [[spoiler:that was through his ability to pick up air vibrations.]]
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: He noticeably creates a situation where he gets to do both at once.

!! Sphinx

Medusa tasked this phantom to bring despair to an esteemed author who was looking for a young woman [[spoiler:(who is revealed to be Koyomi)]]. As a young girl, she gave him both the inspiration to continue writing after a severe case of writer's block, and the hope to move forward with his life after he had become suicidal. He is now looking for her to return a ring that she dropped during their initial encounter, and to express his gratitude towards her.

!!! Tropes

* CaneFu: Though he can walk fine, he always carries one, even in human form.
* CoolSword: Switches weapons during his fight with Beast.
* GentlemanWizard: ONLY looks like one - [[AvertedTrope he's definitely not gentlemanly!]]
* HighClassGlass: Somewhat; His specs has one missing glass piece.
* JackOfAllStats
* PlayingWithFire: His main form of attack.
* ManipulativeBastard: Like some of the Phantoms in the show, Sphinx knows the best way to send a Gate past the DespairEventHorizon is to destroy the source of their hope.
* MagicStaff: His WeaponOfChoice and is good for close range and long range combat.
* MummyWrap: He can wrap himself with bandages and escape via teleporting.
* NiceHat: Wears a nice top hat in human form.
* SharpDressedMan
* WouldHitAGirl: He smacks Koyomi in the face.
* ZergRush: His solution to dealing with Wizard? Don't fight him at all. He instead uses a large amount of [[{{mook}} Ghouls]] to stall him instead.

!! Siren

This phantom was tasked to bring a retiring teacher, who is in fact Haruto's old elementary school teacher, into despair. The teacher stumbled into Haruto once again on his hunt for a rare model of a toy plane that was stolen from the shrine of his deceased son.

!!! Tropes

* ArmorPiercingSlap: Gave one to Haruto after he struggled to successfully foil her plan.
* BladeOnAStick
* BlowYouAway
* CharmPerson: She got Wajima to partly help her in her plans. He forgot the whole thing afterwards. Subverted with the child, though-she easily convinced him to get a toy plane without her charm ability.
* FeatheredFiend: Has a bird motif.
* GenderFlipped: Averted, unlike Valkyrie and Sylphi. She is a female phantom based on a female-based mythological creature.
* LimitedWardrobe: Averted. Unlike every other Phantom who only seems to have one set of clothes, she's gone through five different outfits during her two episode run, which is more than the main cast has.
* ManipulativeBitch: Notably on the next half of the arc, where you got a boy to hand her the toy plane without her charm ability.
* MoreThanMindControl: Said boy really wanted to break that plane so that his father would care less about his toy collection.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The very Combo-breaker of this trope; we have seen over 20 male phantoms after Medusa! Too bad it becomes a double-subversion after her destruction.
* TheVamp: Even more so than Medusa, where she made use of her charm ability.
* StageWhisper: Partly to show how she seductively got Wajima to help her despite him being an ally.

!! Arachne

After finding the next Gate, a soon-to-be father, Medusa tasked this phantom to go after him. Holds the distinction of being the last of the Lesser Phantoms to appear in-series.

!!! Tropes
* AnAxeToGrind
* BatOutOfHell: He looks like he's part bat! Did the writers even bother to look up the myths?
* BigCreepyCrawlies
* DumbMuscle: Compared to the last batch of Phantoms who were excellent {{Manipulative Bastard}}s, Arachne is a incompetent brute who's only a threat because Medusa is actively backing him.
* GenderFlipped: In a similar case to Valkyrie.
* LightningBruiser
* OhCrap: His reaction to being surrounded by Wizard Infinity Style and Beast Hyper.
* VillainExitStageLeft: His only power.
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: Gets to do both at once when he attempts to kill a pregnant woman.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Unreleased Phantoms]]
Phantoms who are manifested from a Gate's despair. They are called "unreleased", due to Wizard destroying them before they are able to break free from the Gates.

!!Jabberwock

The very first Phantom Wizard fought on-screen in a Gate's Underworld. For this case, the Gate was Rinko Daimon, who fell into despair when Minotaur destroyed her pendant which was her memento of her father.

!!!Tropes
* BigCreepyCrawlies

!!Cyclops

The next Unreleased Phantom Wizard fought after it manifested from Shunpei's magic potential, after Hellhound humiliated him publicly and burnt his inspirational book.

!!!Tropes
* CarryABigStick
* {{Cyclops}}: Though he isn't the only phantom with one eye

!!Jörmungandr

The third Unreleased Phantom Wizard battled. It was manifested from the mana of a youth, Naoki Katayama, after Gargoyle revealed how the young man's father died by his hands attempting to protect his son.

!!!Tropes
* BodyMotifs: For this case, it's modeled after a right hand.
* EvilHand

!!Hekatonkheir

The fourth Unreleased Phantom Wizard battled, when Phoenix burned all the Christmas presents a yanki man (Tatsuro) worked hard to get for the children in an orphanage.

!!!Tropes
* DoNotGoGentle: When Wizard goes to do his Kick Strike with the [=WizarDragon=], he actually delivers a kick of his own to try and stop Wizard.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous

!!Bandersnatch

The fifth Unreleased Phantom to appear after Hydra smashed an artist's precious painting. While Wizard was busy fighting Hydra and the Ghouls, Beast managed to engage this unreleased Phantom and defeat it.

!!!Tropes
* EasilyDetachableRobotParts: Not a robot, but for this case, after the phantom was sliced, [[AsteroidsMonster the chopped up bodies]] [[GoddamnBats moved on its own.]]

!![[spoiler: Mayu's Inner Phantom]]

[[spoiler: Manifested in Mayu Inamori, twin sister to Medusa's Gate Misa, after Medusa revealed her true nature to her. Neither Wizard nor Beast could reach her in time, being occupied with fighting Medusa and Gremlin. However, just as it was about to break free, Mayu managed to overcome her despair and force the Phantom back into her body with new-found hope. Now, Mayu is training directly under The White Wizard.]]

!!!Tropes
* NoNameGiven: For now.
* [[spoiler: PlayingWithFire: Implied when Mayu, as Kamen Rider Mage, used the Special Ring.]]
* [[spoiler: SiliconBasedLife: Implied to be so when it began emerging from Mayu's body.]]
* [[spoiler: SpikesOfVillainy: From what little we see of it. Said spikes looked crystalline in nature.]]
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Subverted at the last minute.]]

!!Nemoto Kazuyoshi's Inner Phantom

It manifested within this character after his name was cleared, but this is because he saw his pet to really be the real arsonist, Phantom Raum.

!!!Tropes
* AllThereInTheManual: Averted. The site that normally shows all phantoms including unreleased ones did not give any background information on this phantom.
* BlackComedy: Nemoto showing signs of a phantom being about to burst out of him is played as a punchline to show Rinko and Shunpei wasting their effort in preventing despair on one case when another did the job instead.
* FatBastard: If the phantom were to succeed in bursting out of Nemoto, killing him and impersonate him, its human form will most likely become this.
* GreatOffscreenWar: Downplayed as it's a battle between it and either Kamen Rider Wizard, Kamen Rider Beast or both with their own respective phantoms.
* NoNameGiven

!!Yuzuru Iijima's Inner Phantom

It first manifested when Syphi sabotaged Yuzuru's bike trick and blown his bicycle to his neighbor, Akari. While he managed to prevent Kamen Rider Beast from entering Yuzuru's underworld, he regained hope after seeing Akari recovering from the hit. Sylphi's next plan was to kidnap Akari and made the group see her getting crushed by metal beams, only for it to backfire horribly for this pantom. Afterwards, deciding not to become a magician, Yuzuru was offered by Kamen Rider Beast to destroy the inner phantom, [[spoiler:only to be stopped and abducted by The White Wizard.]]

* [[spoiler:BigCreepyCrawlies: Implied with the emerged spider limbs.]]
* NoNameGiven: Like Mayu's.
* [[spoiler:SpiderLimbs: From what we saw, it's possibly some type of Spider Phantom]]
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Subverted the first time in a similar manner to Mayu's. During the second time, Sylphi tried to bring this gate to despair again, only to had his plan thwarted by Kamen Rider Mage.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Since Yuzuru doesn't want to be a magician, Kamen Rider Beast offered him to have his inner phantom removed.

!! Gigantes

It manifested inside Masafumi Saionji after Sphinx successfully melted his precious ring. Kamen Rider Wizard handled this phantom while Kamen Rider Beast took care of Sphinx.

!!!Tropes

* {{Cyclops}}: Subverted. In addition of one singular eye, there is one red dot on the palm on each of its hands. These dots are revealed to be eyes as well.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Specifically, its extra eyes are on its hands.
* GiantHandsOfDoom: It has a pair of them.
* InescapableNet: Its centre body and turn into one, but as a subversion, Wizardragon managed to escape on time.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Only for its hands.

!! Masahiro Yamamoto's Inner Phantom

It manifested within Arachne's target after Medusa helped blasting his pregnant wife to bits. Unfortunately for this inner phantom, it could not even emerge out of his body out thanks to Wizard protecting the wife from the explosion.

!!! Tropes
* NoNameGiven
* TailSlap: Implied when Masahiro Yamamoto is a Kamen Rider Mage. Through the Special Ring, he can extend the tail as a whip.

In the Land of Magic, anyone with a driver can become a Kamen Rider Mage. Some of them help fight Phantoms, while others act as the king's guards and enforcers.

* AnimalMotifs: Mages have giant claws for left hands and "tails" on the backs of their belts, making them somewhat resemble attack dogs.
* AscendedFanboy: Shunpei as Kamen Rider Mage...kind of. Since magic is ordinary in the Land of Magic, the Shunpei of that world wants to meet people from {{Alternate Universe}}s instead.
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler: A boy, Shiina, loses his magic when his Inner Phantom is destroyed.]]
* EliteMooks: Compared to the ghouls, these guys can really put up a fight. Three of them were able to take on Beast and put him in a pinch.

** The idea that [[spoiler:the Kamen Riders helped the kids because...well, they were kids who needed help, not because they obeyed the one holding their rings]] never occurred to him.
** [[spoiler:He can't understand why the Kamen Riders could draw their power from the same source as himself, but still be heroic. He views Kamen Riders as imperfect failures.]]
--> '''Amadam''': [[spoiler:[[FamousLastWords What was the difference? Myself and you were all born from the same power...]]]]
* FillerVillain
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Summoned the 13 Riders from the Rings to try and kill Haruto...not realizing that they ''don't'' just follow the orders of whoever summons them, they do what they think is ''right''. They promptly all turn on him.]]

->Live Actor: Shunya Shiraishi/Kaito Nakashima (Child)
->Suit Actor: Seiji Takaiwa

A survivor of the dark magical ritual, he was able to subdue his emerging Phantom by holding onto hope. This gave him the ability to use magic through the equipment granted to him by the wizard in white.

!!!Tropes:

[[index]]
* AllYourPowersCombined: All Dragon
[[Characters/KamenRiderWizardProtagonists Protagonists]]
* ArmorOfInvincibility: What Infinity Style is described as in Character Material. Oddly enough, this is included in the show itself.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBiker: Naturally.
** BadassLongcoat: Wears one in human form and is part of Wizard's suit. It can also ''expand'' as a shield.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Haruto is a NiceGuy, yes, but he can be downright brutal in some fights, especially concerning Phoenix[[spoiler: and later [[SerialKiller Sora]]/[[PsychopathicManChild Gremlin]]]]. [[spoiler:Comes to its conclusion when he sends Phoenix to a FateWorseThanDeath.]]
* BigEater: Can down a box of donuts in one sitting. He explains in Episode 4 that his appetite is partly driven by his need of energy from a high-calorie intake to replenish the mana he's constantly burning while using his magical powers, [[spoiler:such as keeping Koyomi alive]].
* BondOneLiner: He likes to drop these occasionally. [[spoiler: After Phoenix pisses him off by almost killing Rinko, he drops a really good one: "There will be no finale for you.", which he says just as he Rider Kicks Phoenix to the sun.]]
* CharacterTic: Throughout the series, he has been making a sigh of relief that sounds like ''Phii'', ''Fwee'', or ''Fin...'', depending on the listener.
* ChromeChampion: His suit is ''already'' covered in gemstones, but [[SuperMode Infinity Style]] takes the cake by being composed of sparkling silver and glittering diamonds.
* CloseRangeCombatant: In Infinity Style, where he only uses the Axcalibur as the sole weapon of choice.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Alongside with nearly becoming a Phantom in a ritual and being the cause of his friend's game-breaking injury, he had a dark and troubled past as a child. [[spoiler: While still a child, his parents died in a car crash that left him as the only survivor.]] It's so troubled that it becomes Haruto's Underworld... [[spoiler:at least until he accepted Koyomi's death. After that, his Underworld becomes a treasure trove of all the memories he had with her]].
* DarkIsNotEvil: His costume and wardrobe are primarily black, but Haruto is by no means a bad person.
* DeadpanSnarker: He just loves firing off one-liners before a fight. He saves the snark for his Phantom opponents and Nitoh.
* {{Determinator}}: In that, he will not let someone become a phantom as long as he has a breath.
* [[spoiler: TheDragon: Overlaps with UnwittingPawn. While Fueki has many Dragons, Haruto could be considered his main and most powerful one acting as his primary pawn, asset, and enforcer of his will carrying out the most important parts of his plans while being none the wiser.]]
* DullSurprise: Shunya Shiraishi is rather bad at emoting and lets leave it at that.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler: The Hope Ring is almost a subversion, since by the time he gets it Gremlin is dying anyway. He only uses it for one final [[DivingKick Rider Kick]], and then decides to put the ring in a safe place and never use it again.]]
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: Long story short, he's a combination of [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]], [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash]], and [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Mami Tomoe]].
* ExtremityExtremist: Favors his legs in combat. He presumably avoids punching so as not to bust up his rings.
* FailureKnight: His giving people hope mentality comes from - in his eyes - his failure to [[spoiler:save his parents]] and is extremely afraid of failing anyone.
* {{Familiar}}: The Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken, and Golem [=PlaMonsters=].
* FlashStep: Scanning the Infinity Ring while already in Infinity Style allows him to do this.
* FreudianExcuse: The reason behind him being so dead-set on "restoring hope" to everyone? [[spoiler:His parents' dying words were that he was their last hope. He took it to heart.]]
* GenreSavvy: Has shades of this, such as being able to quickly deduce that [[spoiler:Shunpei's fire 'magic']] is caused by the Hellhound instead of discounting the idea because Hellhound was seemingly destroyed in their fight, as well as quickly deducing Hellhound's plan is to [[spoiler:build Shunpei up then crush him]]. He's been able to quickly piece together information to discover the plan of the Phantom or what's needed to save the Gate's hope.
* GrasptheSun: Did that while being in the process of phantomication himself, where he struggled resisting forced despair.
* TheGunslinger: Is shown to be a Trick Shot in Flame Style and a Woo while using Hurricane Style.
* TheHero
* HeroicBSOD: Spends a majority of episode 9 in one, and again in #23, almost to the point where he considered a TenMinuteRetirement.
* HeroicHost: His powers come from Dragon, who is one of the very MonstersOfTheWeek he fights.
* HeroicWillpower: Managed to survive the ritual by sheer force of will in refusing to give up hope.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Has a noticeable lack of self-esteem, from the guilt he has towards [[spoiler:his parents' death and then his teammate's injury that halted his prospect of becoming a pro-football player]], and how he doesn't see himself to have any other role than being Wizard, who has no hope of his own other than restore others'.
* HopeBringer: Serves this role to Gates who have been driven close to the DespairEventHorizon, having to pull them back and defeat the Phantom rampaging in their soul.
* HurtingHero: Has SurvivorGuilt from the ritual that created the Phantoms as well as [[spoiler:from being the sole survivor of the crash that killed his parents]] and its clear he's hurting a great deal from it. However, he also uses this as his main motivation and seems to be coping with it well.
* KungFuWizard
* LightIsGood: In Infinity Style.
* MagicKnight: Seems to be the motif of Infinity Style, both in functionality and design.
* MartyrWithoutACause: Best shown when he's willing to let himself die to save Koyomi's life when the White Wizard says so. [[spoiler: He changes his mind when he learns that he's not the sacrifice, all of Tokyo is.]]
* MeteorMove: Part of his fighting style in Hurricane Style is to get the opponent in the air, then mercilessly assault them from all sides as they fall.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: The Dragon Styles [[note]]Flame Dragon, Water Dragon, Hurricane Dragon, and Land Dragon.[[/note]] and All Dragon.
* MomentOfWeakness: In Episode 45 he was willing to let his favorite teacher fall into despair in order to get a lead on the White Wizard and save Koyomi. Luckily, Shunpei put a stop to that.
* MultiformBalance: Known as "Styles".
** JackOfAllStats: Flame
** SquishyWizard: Water [[note]]It does have a bit of a speed boost over Flame Style, but is otherwise weaker and the form mainly relies on special tricks like the [[ElementalShapeshifter Liquid Ring]].[[/note]]
** FragileSpeedster: Hurricane
** MightyGlacier: Land
** GlassCannon: The Dragon Styles. [[note]]While they are powerful and are capable of dishing out some serious damage, they can't take it or tank their own attacks in return.[[/note]]
** LightningBruiser: All Dragon/Special Rush
** SuperMode: Infinity
** FightingClown: Beast Mantle [[note]]Wizard's Flame Dragon form with the [[{{Flight}} Falco Mantle]] on his right shoulder and the [[ALoadOfBull Buffa Mantle]] on his left shoulder.[[/note]]
** SerialEscalation: Infinity Dragon (Gold)
* MundaneUtility: Uses his magic, especially the Connect Ring, for some mundane things, like a portal so he can retrieve his doughnuts from where he left them earlier.
* NiceGuy: Maybe not to the extremes of [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Eiji]] or [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Gentaro]], but he's still a stand-up guy and takes his duties to save Gates seriously. He's someone you can count on.
** Best illustrated when Mayu tells him that [[spoiler: the White Wizard asked her to steal the Infinity Ring. He actually ''gives'' it to her.]]
* OhCrap: Has this reaction when he realizes Sora is [[spoiler: a SerialKiller]].[[spoiler: This is added with UnstoppableRage when he fights him later.]]
* PaletteSwap: Special Rush is an-all red version of All Dragon.
* [[RealMenWearPink Real Men Wear Tight Frilly Red Pants]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Kosuke's red.
* RingOfPower: This year's collectible trinket. Even Wizard's helmet is designed to look like a ring that wraps around his head. He seems to have two types of rings:
** '''Transformation''': Worn on his left hand, these allow Wizard to assume his "Style" forms.
*** The ''[[PlayingWithFire Flame Ring]]'' allows him to transform into Flame Style.
*** The ''[[MakingASplash Water Ring]]'' enables the Water Style.
*** The ''[[BlowYouAway Hurricane Ring]]'' gives him the power of Hurricane Style.
*** The ''[[DishingOutDirt Land Ring]]'' transforms his form into Land Style.
*** The ''[[MidSeasonUpgrade Dragon Rings]]'': A series of Transformation Rings that are essentially stronger versions of Haruto's normal Style Rings, using the Wizardragon's power to enhance them.
*** The ''[[SuperMode Infinity Ring]]'': Made from Haruto's [[SwissArmyTears tears]], this ring elevates him to Infinity Style, his strongest form. Also allows Dragon to change into the [=AxCalibur=].
** '''Magic''': Worn on his right hand, these allow Wizard to cast magic spells.
*** ''Driver On'': Calls upon the [[TransformationTrinket WizarDriver]].
*** ''[[SummonMagic Dragorise Ring]]'': Summons the [=WizarDragon=] in an Underworld.
*** ''Connect Ring'': Provides a link between two locations or people, practically being used by Wizard as a HyperspaceArsenal.
*** ''Kick Strike Ring'': Enables Wizard to do a kick-based FinishingMove empowered by the element of his current Style.
*** ''Engage Ring'': Allows Wizard to access other peoples' Underworlds. Different from other rings in that the other person has to be the one wearing it, not Wizard.
*** The ''Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken and Golem Rings'' summon (as model kits!) and then power up the [[RobotBuddy PlaMonsters]] Red Garuda, Blue Unicorn, Yellow Kraken and Violet Golem.
*** ''[[BarrierWarrior Defend Ring]]'': Allows Wizard to create a strong defensive barrier. The form of said barrier depends on Wizard's current Style;
**** in Land Style the ring forms a stone wall that not only can block enemy attacks, but also entomb them.
**** In Water Style the ring forms one of Wizard's magic sigils surrounded by water, which can also be slammed into enemies.
**** In Flame Style the ring envelops Wizard in flames, which can be used to clear debris.
*** ''[[IncredibleShrinkingMan Small Ring]]'': Shrinks the user down to a tiny size.
*** ''[[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Big Ring]]'': Expands a body part to enormous size.... [[PowerPerversionPotential oh boy]], or to enlarge the [=WizarSwordGun=] in it's sword form.
*** ''[[MesACrowd Copy Ring]]'': Allows Kamen Rider Wizard to create copies of [[DoppelgangerAttack himself in combat]], or [[DualWielding duplicate the WizarSwordGun]].
*** ''[[CountingSheep Sleep Ring]]'': Puts the wearer to sleep.
*** ''[[LightEmUp Light Ring]]'': Illuminates the area with bright light.
*** ''[[RubberMan Extend Ring]]'': Allows Wizard to elongate a part of his body... [[PowerPerversionPotential oh my]].
*** ''[[ElementalShapeshifter Liquid Ring]]'': Used only in Water Style, it allows Wizard to become liquid, akin to [[Series/KamenRiderBlackRX Black RX's BioRider form]] or [[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO ShaUTa Combo]].
*** ''Bind Ring'': Five circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims.
*** ''Please Ring'': Transfers magical energy from Wizard to the wearer. [[spoiler: Particularly, Koyomi as she needs mana to live.]]
*** ''[[FastTunnelling Drill Ring]]'': Used in Land Style, it allows Wizard to spin at high speeds and tunnel through the ground. It can also be used to enhance the Kick Strike into a SpinAttack.
*** ''[[{{Fartillery}} Smell Ring]]'': Makes the wearer emit a disgusting odor.
*** ''[[AnatomyArsenal Special Ring]]'': While in a Dragon Style, it summons a part of [=WizarDragon=]'s body as armor - a ChestBlaster for Flame Dragon, [[PowerGivesYouWings a pair of wings]] for Hurricane Dragon, a TailSlap for Water Dragon or WolverineClaws for Land Dragon. For Flame Dragon, doubles as the Finisher Ring.
*** ''[[AnIcePerson Blizzard Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Water Dragon Style.
*** ''[[ShockAndAwe Thunder Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Hurricane Dragon Style.
*** ''[[GravityMaster Gravity Ring]]'': Enables Wizard to use his FinishingMove in Land Dragon Style.
*** [[spoiler:''[[ChristmasMiracle Merry Christmas Ring]]'':]]: A one time use ring that [[spoiler: restores destroyed gifts]].
*** ''[[ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction Dress Up Ring]]'': Changes Haruto's outfit as a handy disguise.
*** ''Excite Ring'': Make Wizard much more muscular.
*** ''Fall Ring'': Creates a hole directly below the user. Useful for quick escapes.
*** [[spoiler:Hope Ring]]: [[spoiler:A ring created from the PhilosophersStone and Haruto's hope. Allows Wizard to perform a powered up version of his Rider Kick summoning energy projections of Dragon representing Fire, Land, Hurricane, Water, and Infinity to strike the opponent.]]
*** ''Finish Strike Ring'': Used during the events of Wizard in Magic Land, this equips Infinity Style with all of Dragon's parts save for the head, ''that'' being used during the finisher.
** Wizard can also use Beast's rings for various effects. It's unclear if this trend will continue however:
*** ''Dolphi Ring'': Allows the user to melt into liquid and hide/strike from all directions. Furthermore, the user does not need to be transformed first in order to use the spell.
*** ''Falco Ring'': The user molts into a mass of feathers upon any physical contact, allowing them to be unhurt from strikes. Like Dolphi, it can be used on a non-transformed individual. Used on Nitoh while he lacked the Beast Driver.
* RunningGag: He will never be able to fully enjoy a doughnut onscreen, because something bad ALWAYS happens to him when he tries to eat one. [[spoiler: Like his parents dying in a car crash.]]
* SarcasmMode: Him complimenting Nitoh's downright stupid myna bird plan in Episode 37 was 100% pure sarcasm.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: To an extent, when he accidently fell in a shopping cart while fighting the Bogy Phantom.
** His voice also temporary broke when he exclaimed about an advertisement beforehand.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He wants nothing to do with Shunpei and Rinko's spat in Episode 36.
* SmugSuper: Downplayed, but it's there. He has the bad habit of toying with Lesser Phantoms while showing off his magic in the most dramatic way possible instead of just killing his opponent. A lot of conflict could be avoided if he just got down to business.
* TheStoic: Haruto isn't as extreme an example as some, but he doesn't show much emotion.
** NotSoStoic: There are a few instances where Haruto really flips his shit. [[spoiler: Like when Phoenix first attacked in #8. Their first fight was the first time Haruto seemed panicked and worried he might lose.]]
* SuperDickery: [[spoiler:Talking about saving Koyomi implied that he is willing to do the Sabbath ritual like Fueki. In reality, he was referring to saving her soul by letting her rest in peace. This is though retrieving the Philosopher's Stone and hiding it away.]]
* SuperWristGadget: The Drago Timer, a device created exclusively for the Dragon Styles. Always used in Flame Dragon.
** MesACrowd: Summons clones of Wizard's 3 other Dragon Styles. Unlike the Copy Ring, the Dragon Style clones can act on their own.
** FinishingMove: ''Dragon Four-Mation'' [[note]]When the thumb-like attachment is pressed while all 4 Dragon Styles are together, they are equipped with their respective [=WizarDragon=] part and unleash their special attacks.[[/note]]
** AllYourPowersCombined: By scanning the Drago Timer on the [=WizarDriver=], Wizard can unite the Dragon Styles into All Dragon.
* SurvivorGuilt: Has signs of this from being one of the only survivors of the ritual that created the Phantoms and [[spoiler:surviving the crash that killed his family.]] While he doesn't say it was all his fault, it clearly effected him deeply.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Considers Phoenix [[spoiler:beating Rinko nearly to death just for fun]] this.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Plain sugar donuts. Episode 52 also shows his personal favorites are from the Donut Shop Hungry truck, as he's eating a donut and comments that it's not the same as from Hungry.
* TranquilFury: In #23 when [[BewareTheNiceOnes Phoenix pushes him too far]]. He clearly is furious with Phoenix for [[spoiler:what he did to Rinko]], but Haruto keeps a calm tone the entire time (even for [[TheStoic him]]), even when [[spoiler:condemning Phoenix to a FateWorseThanDeath and the BondOneLiner that follows.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Sort of. [[spoiler: The White Wizard seeing him overcoming his Inner Phantom inspired his Plan B thus starting the plot of the show.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: Since Day One he's been unknowingly been one of Fueki's many Dragons.]]
* [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: At the end of the series, he searches for a place to leave Koyomi's ring. During ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'', he admits that he kept wandering because he couldn't find a place. Ultimately, he decides to leave Koyomi's ring [[YourMindMakesItReal in his memories.]]]]
* WeaponOfChoice: Two {{Swiss Army Weapon}}s.
** Standard and Dragon Styles: Wizar[[CoolSword Sword]][[CoolGuns Gun]]
*** {{BFS}}: When using the Big Ring on the weapon in Sword Mode.
*** DualWielding: When using the Copy Ring on the weapon in Sword Mode.
*** GunsAkimbo: When using the Copy Ring on the weapon in Gun Mode.
*** ReverseGrip: In both Hurricane forms.
*** SwordAndGun: One time in #14 via the Copy Ring.
** Infinity Style: [[AnAxeToGrind Ax]][[{{BFS}} Calibur]]
* WhamLine: Gave this to Phoenix after the latter proudly proclaim that he can never be fully killed.
--> [[spoiler:"There will be no finale for you."]]
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Would not respect or protect Sora's wishes to become a human being.
-->Haruto: You have lost your human soul long ago. You don't count.
* WorldsBestWarrior: In ''Super Hero Taisen Z'', Sharivan describes him as the most powerful magic-user on Earth.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Uses submission moves in #4.
** He uses even more when Land Style appears in Episode 6.

[[folder:Dragon Phantom/[=WizarDragon=]]]
->Voice Actor: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo
->Live Actor: Shunya Shiraishi

Haruto's inner phantom, and the source of his powers.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* [[spoiler:CameBackStrong: After being killed by Legion and revived, he gains the power to transform into the Axcalibur and give Haruto access to [[SuperMode Infinity Style]].]]
* [[spoiler: CharacterDevelopment: Until #31, Dragon acted like your typical Phantom: destructive and obsessed with bringing his Gate to despair. After Haruto's strong heart revived him, though, he has decided to become Haruto's "hope" and allows him to access Infinity Style.]]
* CombiningMecha: With Wizard's [[CoolBike Machine Winger]] called Winger [=WizarDragon=].
** TransformingMecha: Into a [[GiantFootOfStomping giant foot]] called Strike Phase as part of a finisher.
* EnemyWithin
* {{Expy}}: A hybrid of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} the Kyubi]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Hollow Ichigo]].
* FinishingMove: ''Strike End'' [[note]]After Wizard scans the Kick Strike Ring, Winger [=WizarDragon=] converts into its Strike Phase mode. Afterwards, a projection of Wizard pushes the dragon foot coated in fire towards the enemy.[[/note]]
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: While he never exactly had the chance to be a Heel, he was always the TokenEvilTeammate. But by #30, Haruto rubbed off on him and ultimately causes him to perform a HeroicSacrifice to protect Beast and Chimera. He completes his turn in #31 upon being brought BackFromTheDead by Haruto's hope, stating that now he is Haruto's hope.]]
* HopeBringer: [[spoiler:After being reborn by Haruto's sheer force of will, he declares he will become Haruto's hope through the Infinity Style and [=AxCalibur=].]]
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Subverted at first, as when summoned, Haruto has to control him to fight other phantoms.
* InTheBack: Dragon might be a hope bringer, but he has no qualms trying to take over Haruto when given the chance, as shown in the movie.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Surprisingly the Wizardragon does show slight signs of this, despite being a hostile Phantom inside Haruto. He was mildly surprised when Haruto willingly called him his hope.
** PragmaticVillainy: But, Dragon still teases Haruto about how he will end up giving up to despair and laughs at the fact Haruto calls him the opposite of it. He allows him to borrow his powers mostly because if Haruto dies without losing hope, he will die with him. Better shown in the movie, despite the fact Dragon declared he will be Haruto's hope.
** HeroicSacrifice: What Dragon does in #30. Whether that's a JerkWithAHeartOfGold or PragmaticVillainy is up for debate.
*** [[spoiler:Considering in #31, when he's brought BackFromTheDead, ''he'' tells Haruto that he's going to be his hope, so it seems he really has changed.]]
* MeaningfulEcho: [[spoiler:Earlier, Haruto told him that he was his hope. After being brought BackFromTheDead after being destroyed by Legion, it's Dragon who says that he is Haruto's hope.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: It's hard to tell whether the [=WizarDragon=] is biological, mechanical, or spiritual. It could be all of them.
* OxymoronicBeing: As a phantom, he was born from Haruto's despair, yet he calls him his hope.
* SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan: Go on, ''guess''.
* TokenEvilTeammate
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Koyomi [[spoiler:Fueki]]]]
->Live Actress: Makoto Okunaka

A mysterious young girl who was given to Haruto by the White Wizard. She has the supernatural ability to discern Phantoms through their human disguises. According to the White Wizard, she was a victim that died in the same Sabbath ritual that Haruto suffered through; though her body somehow stayed intact and can be kept reanimated by a wizard's mana.

[[spoiler:He's lying, partially. She ''is'' a reanimated corpse, but she died of natural causes. Her father Fueki turned to magic and became the White Wizard to try and save her, keeping her "alive" with the PhilosophersStone and performing the Sabbath in an attempt to resurrect her completely.]]

!!!Tropes:
* AFriendInNeed: No matter what, Koyomi will always be there for Haruto to help lift him up out of his darkest hour.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: According to pre-release material, she doesn't know whether she is a human survivor of the ritual, or a Phantom in human form. Turns out she's human, but not exactly a "survivor"...
* BerserkButton: A surefire way to make Koyomi angry is to insult Haruto. Do ''not'' imply he is trying anything but his hardest around her.
* CrystalBall: Uses one to show her where Haruto is.
* [[spoiler:DeadAllAlong: Sort of. The real Koyomi died sometime ago, and Fueki describes the one we know as a puppet that houses the Philosopher's Stone.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}
* [[spoiler:DiedInYourArmsTonight]]
** [[spoiler: DisappearsIntoLight]]
* TheEeyore
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Mezool]], albeit a heroic version.
** [[spoiler:Also of [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Yui Kanzaki]], post-#48]].
* EvilLaugh: Of a witch vibe. Even though she only did it to scare Shunpei in episode 32.
* FortuneTeller
* HeroicVow: In Episode 42 she swears that she will live her life to its fullest as a human being no matter what she really is.
* IllGirl: [[spoiler:Since her childhood.]]
* ItIsDehumanizing: [[{{Jerkass}} Sora]]/[[TheSociopath Gremlin]] constantly calls her a 'doll' in an extremely demeaning fashion.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Gremlin kills her by forcefully removing the Philosopher's Stone that was keeping her alive and unlike [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Kengo]], she wasn't revived in the final episode. Then again, considering how trying to revive her caused the mess in the first place and how she told her own father that he shouldn't have bothered with bringing her to life, it could be for the best.]]
** [[spoiler:With Haruto taking the Philosopher's Stone out of Gremlin, there may still be hope. Haruto made brief contact with Koyomi before the Philosopher's Stone became the Hope Ring. Though Haruto decides not to use it again after destroying Gremlin, he keeps it in a safe place, so there's still a possibility like with [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Ankh's broken Taka Medal]].]]
* [[spoiler:MacGuffinGirl: She's the Philosopher's Stone that everyone in the know wants.]]
* MeaningfulName: Means "calendar", relating to her fortune-telling ability.
* MissingMom: It's mentioned that her mother passed away some time ago.
* MissionControl: For Haruto. She controls the [=PlaMonsters=] and searches for Phantoms with her crystal ball while Haruto gumshoes.
* MoralityChain: [[spoiler: For Fueki. More precisely, Fueki abandoned any morals after she died in order to bring her back to life.]]
* MysteriousWaif
* OnlyOneName: Because that's all she can remember. Turns out her last name is [[spoiler:Fueki; she's the daughter of the White Wizard.]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: A rare benevolent Type V.
* OutOfFocus: Her actress is an idol with a busy schedule, so she doesn't get as much screentime as her character absolutely should.
* StepfordSmiler: Becomes this trope as [[spoiler:she begins to mysteriously fall apart.]]
* [[spoiler:TomatoInTheMirror]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shigeru Wajima]]
->Live Actor: Hisahiro Ogura

A keen archaeologist and gemcutter. He creates the rings that Kamen Rider Wizard uses in his magic, carving the gems and then setting them in the rings.

!! Tropes:
* TheAtoner: Since some of his stuff was used in the ritual, he houses Haruto and Koyomi and builds magic tools for them as penance.
* BlackBox: During episode 3, he claims to just follow his instincts, carving the gems and setting them into rings, without knowing what gives them power or what spell they will cast once ready.
* CoolOldGuy
* EveryManHasHisPrice
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to view himself as a father figure to Haruto and Koyomi. [[spoiler:You can hear the pain in his voice in #47 when he says that Koyomi is better off with "her real father".]]
* RealMenCook
* SmallRoleBigImpact: It's easy to forget that his artifacts were used to help start the Eclipse thereby setting the ''entire plot'' into motion.
* TheEngineer: Obviously, since he makes rings.
* TheSmartGuy
* TeamDad: Has the wisdom and life experience to impart good advice to the rest of the group.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Rinko Daimon]]
->Live Actress: Yuko Takayama (Adult)/Ichino Suehara (Child)

A rookie detective who is devoted to protecting the lives of innocents. She has become interested in Kamen Rider Wizard after being saved by him, and because he is the key to fighting the Phantoms that threaten the city.

!!!Tropes:
* BigEater: Early in #3, she eats all of Haruto's [[DonutMessWithACop donuts]] in a matter of about one minute. Made funnier when in the following episode, she asks Haruto how he can eat so many donuts in one sitting.
* TheCommissionerGordon
* DespairEventHorizon: Is driven dangerously close to it by Minotaur, but pulled back by Wizard.
* FairCop
* [[spoiler:HeroicBSOD: Ends up having this in the last episode. Just as Haruto shows up to (as he put it) "save Koyomi", Rinko ended up thinking Haruto had gone bad. She gets out of it when Haruto explained he was gonna save Koyomi's spirit.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero
** [[spoiler:Tells what she believes to be a good Phantom that he shouldn't follow orders and just do what he wants. Said Phantom turns out to be [[AxCrazy Phoenix]], who takes her advice and decides he's going to [[ForTheEvulz have as much of his]] [[BloodKnight 'fun' as he wants]].]]
** Another is exposing the real arsonist (a Gate's pet bird), where the bird transformed into the phantom in front of a Gate's eyes, causing him to despair. Surprisingly, this is PlayedForLaughs.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: She has standing orders to ignore the Phantom threat, but is going behind her boss' back to help Haruto anyway. Eventually, [[spoiler: Agent Kizaki informs her superiors to not interfere with her association with Wizard after he comes around.]]
* ShipTease: Implied with Haruto.
* SexySantaDress: Wears one in #16 as part of police duty on Christmas Eve, though its more cute than sexy, as noted by Haruto.
* {{Tsundere}}: Has shades of Type B in the first episode.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shunpei Nara]]
->Live Actor: Junki Tozuka/Ryusei Shoji (Child)

A wizardry fanboy who wants to become Haruto's apprentice.

!!!Tropes:

* BigDamnHeroes: Yes, really, in Episode #45 he saves the day stopping Siren from sending the Gate past the Despair Event Horizon.
* BumblingSidekick[=/=]RecklessSidekick: Manages to be both at once.
* {{Camp}}: Has definite shades of this.
* DistressedDude: At least twice.
* FaceFault: Frequently falls on his face for comic effect.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: His dream is to become a magician just like the ones in the story books he read as a child.
* KidAppealCharacter: Definitely meant as a surrogate for young audience members.
* TheKlutz: Known to frequently trip, break things and/or injure himself.
* LargeHam: His expressions are over-the-top. Nuff' said.
* TheLoad: Episodes 12 and 13 have him fearing that he is this because he feels like he doesn't contribute anything to the fight against the Phantoms compared to everyone else on Team Wizard. This is subverted when he realizes his strength is his NiceGuy[[BuffySpeak ness]].
* NiceGuy: His greatest strength. His energetic personality, persistance, determination, and unconditional kindness inspire people to believe in hope and the good in the world and not to fall into despair. Best shown in episode 13.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Helping Rinko expose an arsonist is one. See the above for more details.
* OneOfTheKids: In his first scene, even kids consider him childish. Some episodes later when the VictimOfTheWeek is a kid, he and Shunpei are even dressed the same.
* PlayingWithFire: In his introductory episodes. Subverted as it was the Hellhound Phantom behind the powers.
* {{Sidekick}}: Self-proclaimed one to Haruto. Eventually made official.
* WhatTheHellHero: After his BigDamnHeroes moment, he calls Haruto and Nitoh on their recently callous actions, telling them that they're both no better than the White Wizard.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: When infiltrating a high school in #26.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Donut Shop Hungry Manager]]
->Live Actor: Kaba-chan

The manager of a local donut-focused food truck, the Donut Shop Hungry. He likes Haruto, who is a loyal customer, even though Haruto [[RunningGag only ever buys the plain sugar donuts.]]

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler: ApocalypseMaiden: He was kidnapped by the Akumaizer during Ultimatum and used to bring about the end of the world.]]
* BerserkButton: People messing up his donuts, as seen when he noticed Kosuke spreading mayonnaise on some donuts. Subverted when he tasted one of them himself, as it gave him an inspiration to make a new kind of donut, then played straight again when he served Kosuke a new donut which already had mayonnaise in it, and Kosuke spread more mayo on top. The Manager was furious and refused to let Kosuke eat it.
* CampGay: Is very effeminate and dresses like a woman while working on his food truck. Ironically, the actor playing him, who is openly gay, actually ''tones down'' his campiness for this character.
* FriendToAllChildren
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Is usually involved in this with his employee, Ryuu.
* GossipyHens: The Manager is all-too-quick to start going on about things like Haruto's potential love life and his own dreams. In fact, much of the {{Funny Background Event}}s involve his assistant physically trying to shut him up before he goes too far.
* LocalHangout: When the good guys are not discussing the problem of the week or relaxing in the antique shop, they will definitely be doing so at the donut truck. Strangely, the Manager and his employee never make anything of it until they see Haruto transform in front of them well into the series.
* NoNameGiven: Is only known as Manager.
** ''Movie War Ultimatum'' reveals his name to be [[spoiler:Yu Kamimura.]]
* QueerPeopleAreFunny
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to his employee Ryu's blue.
* ShooOutTheClowns: The Donut Shop Hungry antics become less frequent as the series goes on.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ryu the Donut Shop Hungry employee]]

A man who works in the Donut Shop Hungry food truck, always in the company of the Manager.

!!!Tropes
* FlatCharacter: Perhaps one of the most blatant cases in any Kamen Rider series. He really never has much to say or do except to keep his boss in check when he gets into TMI territory, and be frustrated alongside the Manager when Haruto only asks for plain sugar donuts.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to the Manager's red.

[[folder:Sou Fueki/"The White Wizard"/Kamen Rider [[spoiler:Wiseman]]]]
->Voice Actor: Toshitsugi Takashina/Narushi Ikeda
->Suit Actor: Eitoku/Jun Watanabe.
->Live Actor: Narushi Ikeda

A mysterious wizard in white robes who gives Haruto the equipment needed to fight the Phantoms. Later in the series he's shown to be an equally mysterious man named Sou Fueki. [[spoiler:He's revealed to be Wiseman, leader of the Phantoms.]]

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler:AlasPoorVillain]]
* AllThereInTheManual: In-series, his Rider form is only ever referred to as "the White Wizard". Information later released from Toei revealed that this form is officially called Kamen Rider [[spoiler:Wiseman]].
* [[spoiler: AlwaysSaveTheGirl: His motivation, though not in a good way.]]
* AntiHero: He fights both Phantoms and other Riders.
** [[spoiler:AntiVillain]]
* {{Badass}}: Well, what did you expect? He repelled a Phantom using a magical rune without needing to physically do anything.
** Later he delivers a CurbstompBattle to Beelzebub, who even Haruto's Flame Dragon Style couldn't beat, with ''two attacks'', both of which pack so much force Beelzebub gets BlownAcrossTheRoom. Once more, he barely had to lift a finger to do it.
** His response to [[spoiler:''Medusa'', a Greater Phantom that just beat the crap out of Haruto]]? Say "Begone!" and blow her away with a wave of his hand.
** BadassBaritone
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: [[spoiler:He was not born a Gate and thus did not possess magic naturally like Haruto; he used science to artificially grow a Phantom within himself and give himself magic.]]
** BadassLongcoat: Wears one as Fueki. His White Wizard form has a BadassLongrobe.
** BadassInANiceSuit
* BigGood: Initially seems this way. He provides Haruto with new gear and steps in to save him at times if need be. [[spoiler:However, things start to [[EvilMentor change]] by #31.]]
** [[spoiler:BigBad]]
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: He uses this as a justification for his more dickish moves, it's a very obvious lie.
* BigDamnHeroes: Most times he shows up, it's to drive away a Phantom in the nick of time.
** [[spoiler:VillainousRescue: Turns out that it was really this trope all along.]]
* [[spoiler: BitchInSheepsClothing: In his earlier appearances he was your standard BigGood, but by the end, it has become obvious that he only values people depending how useful they are to him and his goals.]]
* BlatantLies: Him playing the destiny card is rather obvious BS in and out of universe.
* BrokenAce: [[spoiler: He's a brilliant scientist who has made countless discoveries that has helped mankind, the most powerful Wizard in the setting, reinvented magic, is the WorldsStrongestMan, but he's also a mass murdering egocentric maniac who was driven insane by his daughter's death.]]
* BrownNote: Whenever the White Wizard uses his weapon in a flute-like manner. [[spoiler:Kizaki and Beast were victims of this.]]
* [[spoiler:ButThouMust: There are some people who turned down his offer in becoming a magician. The White Wizard simply chained them up, bring them to another place and made them BrainwashedAndCrazy.]]
* [[spoiler: ButNotTooEvil: He's a loving father, so he's not all evil. While a lot of people died and became phantoms by his hands, but judging by the dialogue between him and Gremlin in #50, he's definitely not proud of it.]]
* CastAsAMask: After he's revealed to be Fueki, his voice actor is replaced by Fueki's actor.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Rather easy to be one when you run both sides.]]
* [[spoiler:ConsummateLiar: Everything that came out of his mouth during the first three quarters of the show were nothing more than excellently crafted lies.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Everytime he pulls a BigDamnHeroes moment, he is curb-stomping someone. First he knocked away Lizardman with a magical rune, and he sent [[KnightOfCerebus Beelzebub]] running with just two attacks. And he did so both times without moving from his spot. Later curb-stomp victims include [[spoiler:Medusa, Beast (twice), and Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:DeathByIrony: The man who has plotted everything from Haruto's rise to power all the way up to the Eclipse is defeated by a person who depended more on luck than on proper planning... ''twice''.]]
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: The original Koyomi's death was this for him. It turned him into a completely [[MoralMyopia amoral]], [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]] [[EntitledBastard bastard]]... And he ''didn't'' turn into a Phantom. He's still human.]]
** [[spoiler: Might be subverted because right after he goes through it, he creates an artificial phantom.]]
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: He gives Haruto the [=WizarDriver=] and teaches him how to use it before disappearing. Later, he anonymously delivers the magic stone for the Flame Dragon Ring, directs Koyomi to the Water Dragon stone, and helps Haruto create the Drago Timer. He even eventually takes on Mayu and Yuzuru as apprentices - even though Yuzuru doesn't ''want'' to be one.
* [[spoiler:EntitledBastard: He states that everyone that he turned into a Phantom should be happy that they died for him.]]
* [[spoiler:EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Fueki may be evil, but he truly does love his daughter and seems to miss his wife a great deal.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong]]
* [[spoiler:EvilCounterpart: Examining him closely you'll realize he's a pretty solid one to Haruto. They both lost their loved ones (and bonus points for the inverse relationship, with Haruto being the child who lost his parents and Fueki being the parent who lost his child) and while Haruto was able to move on from his loss and become a selfless NiceGuy, Fueki became a selfish, callous human being. They also got their powers in opposite ways, as Haruto gained his magic from the power of hope while Fueki got the idea to give himself magic powers after passing the DespairEventHorizon. Both were motivated by Koyomi but in the end, Haruto knew when to stop chasing ghosts while Fueki didn't.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilMentor]]
* [[spoiler:EvilSorcerer: He's got all the bases covered. All-powerful and mysterious? Check. Summons demons? Check. Mass human sacrifice? ''Triple'' check.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilSoundsDeep]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[spoiler:[[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Shirou Kanzaki]], post-#48. His tendency to teleport and overpower absolutely everyone also bears resemblance to Shirou's Dragon, Kamen Rider Odin. Bonus points for the fact that Shirou is technically Odin in a sense. It's also worth noting that, while the names have different spellings, ''Shiro''i [[note]]white, as in White Wizard[[/note]] and ''Shiro''u sound almost the same]].
* {{Familiar}}: The White Garuda and Cerberus [=PlaMonsters=].
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine
* [[spoiler: HumanSacrifice: Fueki is a BIG fan of this trope and is his answer to any problem that comes up in his life: Kidnap a bunch of people and turn them into horrid monsters.]]
* {{Irony}}: The most powerful Wizard in the story is most well known as [[spoiler: a scientist.]]
* [[spoiler:ItsAllAboutMe: Haruto calls him out on murdering countless people to further his own goals. He calls them all "insignificant" and says that they should be happy that they died for him.]]
* [[spoiler:KickTheDog: He beat Kizaki into a coma because he figured out some secret about him, abducted a kid to train against his will, and nearly killed Beast for interfering twice over.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: by Sora.]]
** [[spoiler: NoBodyLeftBehind: Probably from the Artificial Phantom in him.]]
* KillSteal: [[spoiler:Sorry Mayu, looks like you won't be getting your revenge after all.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: When he shows up, shit gets real.
* KnightTemplar: Despises the Phantoms and wants them destroyed, but is willing to go to rather extreme lengths to do so. [[spoiler:Or that's his cover story.]]
* LanguageOfMagic: The White Wizard is able to do this, and what's better is that's it's combined with his [[BadassBaritone already-deep voice]].
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler:His plans come crashing down because he pissed off the wrong person (Nitoh) in his second attempt to save Koyomi, and was utterly defeated by two people who were birthed from his first attempt (Sora and Haruto)]].
** HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:He's killed by the same weapon he used to pin Sora to a tree with... By the very same guy no less]].
* LightIsGood: At first, then...
** LightIsNotGood: As the fight against the Phantoms goes on, the White Wizard gradually shows a darker, more ruthless side. [[spoiler:And then he's revealed to be an alter-ego of Wiseman.]]
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouEvil [[LoveMakesYouCrazy and Crazy]]: The original Koyomi's death made him completely lose it!]]
* [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather Koyomi, I Am Your Father]]]]
* {{Lunacy}}: His InstantRunes have the lunar cycle imprinted on them.
* [[spoiler:MadScientist]]
* [[spoiler: MagiTech: He created his magic from science. He even implanted himself with an Artificial Phantom!]]
* [[spoiler:TheManBehindTheMonsters]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:His relationship with Mayu is disturbingly similar to his alter-ego's relationship with Medusa.]] And [[spoiler:he's responsible for the death of Mayu's sister and parents in the first place.]]
* MasterActor: [[spoiler:Fueki was able to con everyone with his skills. He was able to play the role as a benevolent BigGood as the White Wizard, a mysterious EvilOverlord as Wiseman, and a morally ambiguous AntiHero in the later phases of his plan all while hiding that he really isn't all that sane.]]
* MixAndMatchWeapon: [[MagicalFlutist Hamel]] [[BladeOnAStick Cane]]
* [[spoiler:MoralMyopia: He truly loves his daughter, but outside of that he's an outright sociopath considering kidnapping, assault, mass murder, and human sacrifice to be perfectly acceptable practices.]]
* [[spoiler:NiceJobBreakingItHero: His killing of Medusa in #48 when he decided that she wasn't needed after finding his fourth Wizard. By that point, with the exception of the Wizard's Phantoms, it would appear that she and Gremlin were the only Phantoms left. If only Fueki had kept her alive and manipulated her for just a while longer, seeing as how out of everyone she was perhaps most cautious of Sora and as stated by Wiseman himself, she was the only one he really trusted. She might have taken Sora down just as he was about to make his move.]]
* NotSoDifferent: To Gremlin of all people. [[spoiler: Both are selfish mass murderers who have driven themselves insane chasing ghosts and both exemplify why HumansAreTheRealMonsters. This is probably why he flipped out when Gremlin called him "Father", it hit a little too close to home.]]
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: [[spoiler: He's said to be a famous physicist, but has also contributed to a number of other fields, including medicine and technology. Plus being a biologist and magicologist, since he invented an artificial Phantom (Carbuncle, AKA Wiseman) and implanted it in himself to let him wield magic.]]
* PaletteSwap: His costume is unique in a sense, but he and Wizard share the same base.
** His belt was initially a blatant example of a repaint of Haruto's Wizardriver during his debut and early appearances, but the producers replaced the repainted prop with an actual slightly different White Wizardriver.
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler: ''Do'' '''''NOT''''' mess with his daughter; Gremlin learned this the hard way...TWICE.]]
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: "消える." [[note]]It is pronounced ''kieru'', which means "Vanish." or "Begone."[[/note]]
* {{Pride}}: Fueki is completely convinced in his own infallibility, superiority, and righteousness, making him incapable of seeing himself in being wrong in any way. [[spoiler: This causes him to leave loose ends, like letting Nitoh and Sora live.]]
* RingOfPower: After all, he's "Wizard but stronger." Many of his rings are [[PropRecycling Wizard's by different names]]:
** ''Change Ring'': Transforms the user into the White Wizard.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls the White Wizard's Driver.
** ''[[BarrierWarrior Barrier Ring]]'': Allows WW to create a strong defensive barrier. A renamed version of Wizard's Defend Ring.
** ''Connect Ring'': Provides a link between two locations or people; identical to Wizard's.
** '' Explosion Ring'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. As basic as it sounds, it's surprisingly powerful, on par with Beast's Hyper Mirage Magnum attack.
** ''Teleport Ring'': Allows MassTeleportation.
** ''Chain Ring'': Circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims. Again, it's Wizard's Bind Ring by a different name.
** ''White Garuda Ring'': Summons the White Garuda [=PlaMonster=].
** ''Cerberus Ring:'' Summons the Black Cerberus [=PlaMonster=].
** ''Dupe Ring'': Allows SelfDuplication. However, unlike Wizard's Copy Ring, it works more like the Drago Timer, with each clone moving independently rather than unison.
** The White [=WizarDriver=] suggests he has more rings that match Wizard's but have different names, such as a "Giant Ring" (Big), and "Micro Ring" (Small).
* [[spoiler:RunningBothSides]]
* ShadowArchetype: Not just in the traditional way, but even his own Driver has its own 'dark' versions of Wizard's spells. It replaces the Wizardriver's "Please" with "Now", "Chou ii ne![[labelnote:*]]Very nice![[/labelnote]]" with "Yes!" and "Saikoooou![[labelnote:*]]Fabulous![[/labelnote]]" with "Understand?!"
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: [[spoiler: Tells Haruto as much when Haruto says he'll save Koyomi another way.]]
* SpaceMaster: Materials identify his magic as space-based, evidenced by his signature rings: Explosion (supercompresses and then releases magic in a very small area) and Teleport (self-explanatory).
* StrangerBehindTheMask: [[spoiler:Fueki]] is introduced one episode before he's revealed as the White Wizard. [[spoiler: Subverted when he's revealed to be Wiseman.]]
* SuperEmpowering: When a Gate manages to resist despair, he immediately teleports in to offer them the chance to become a wizard. [[spoiler:And doesn't take "no" for an answer. Also applies to himself, since he became a Wizard by creating an artificial Phantom and implanting it in his own body.]]
* TheEngineer: It is heavily implied that he makes his own rings, though not particularly as good as Wajima when it comes to quality.
* TheStoic: The White Wizard is strangely calm for almost everytime he appears.
** TranquilFury: He does, however, show subtle hints that he's definitely ''not'' the nicest person.
*** The Fury part is more evident whenever he does his Henshin call.
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:Just look at how pissed he gets when Beast ruins his plans.]]
* [[spoiler: TheSvengali: He raises and trains Wizards in order to turn them into {{Human Sacrifice}}s for his own selfish benefit.]]
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:His reaction to Beast ruining his plans.]]
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Strangely enough, The White Wizard doesn't seem to give a shit about Phantoms, despite his power. The Lizardman, Phoenix, Beelzebub, Medusa, and Legion Phantoms were all at his mercy, but they lived (a little longer) because of his choice to let Haruto do the dirty work instead.
** Almost subverted in #46; Gremlin pushes him a bit too far, with the latter actually aiming to kill Gremlin. He almost gave chase when Gremlin flees, but is stopped by Haruto.
* [[spoiler:TragicVillain: All he wanted to do was save his daughter's life, but in the end failed to accomplish even that, only succeeding in creating an army of monsters and allowing a {{Sociopath}}ic SerialKiller to gain unspeakable power by killing his daughter.]]
* UnderestimatingBadassery: [[spoiler:No matter what, he never saw Beast as a threat. This came to epically bite him in the ass.]]
** [[spoiler:Deconstructed with Gremlin. This proved to be a fatal mistake for not only him, but for everyone else.]]
* TheUnfettered: [[spoiler:There is no price to high, no atrocity too heinous to commit, and no MoralEventHorizon he will not cross in order to save his daughter.]]
* {{Unperson}}: He seems to have done this to himself. There is almost no information about his former identity.
** He also goes through a lot of trouble to make sure nobody investigates him. [[spoiler:Including seriously injuring Kizaki and destroying his office.]]
* [[spoiler: UnreliableExpositor: Shamelessly lies to get others to do his bidding.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler: While he has done enough atrocities to fill a book on purpose there was no way he could have known that the campy hairdresser he kidnapped was a sociopath and a SerialKiller that would eventually become an all powerful monster that he couldn't control.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: [[NotSoStoic Gets noticeably angry]] for the first time when Beast foils the second Sabbath.]]
-->"[[spoiler: I'll have you cowering in fear and despair as you die!]]"
* WalkingSpoiler
** His actual ''official name'' of his transformation is one! [[spoiler:Kamen Rider Wiseman as confirmed by Toei and Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His goal of stopping phantoms doesn't stop the fact that he [[spoiler:kidnaps Yuzuru to do this, as well as beat up Kizaki and Beast for interfering.]]
** As it turns out [[spoiler:his ''real'' goal is to help his daughter Koyomi, and if that means taking things to the extreme, so be it]].
* WorldsStrongestMan: He is clearly in a league of his own. [[spoiler:Wizard had to go all out with Infinity just to beat him and that knocked Haruto out of his transformation]].
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler: The first Sabbath was supposed to revive Koyomi but it was only halfway successful. Seeing Haruto overcome his despair caused Fueki to modify his plans to use Wizards as the sacrifices instead.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast]]
->Live Actor: Tasuku Nagase
->Suit Actor: Jun Watanabe

A student archeologist who discovered a mysterious belt known as the Beast Driver in one of his expeditions.

!!!Tropes:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Does not like people calling him "Mayonnaise".
* AntiHero: After Yuzuru's kidnapping he's shown that he's willing to throw his morals out the window in order to save him. [[spoiler:This includes teaming up with [[TheSociopath Sora]].]]
* AllMenArePerverts: The man spends the first act of Episode #26 being enamored with schoolgirls.
** Lampshaded by Rinko when he argues that the girl he was looking for was Medusa, while commenting on how cute she was.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing
* {{Badass}}: Obviously.
* BadassCape: Has a half-cape, whenever he changes his Mantles on his right.
** {{Flight}}: Falco Mantle
** HealingHands: Dolphi Mantle, which allows Beast to use healing magic.
** InvisibilityCloak[=/=]WhipItGood: Chameleo Mantle
** ALoadOfBull: Buffa Mantle
* BadassBookworm: He was an archaeologist before becoming Beast.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: He manages to do this to Sphinx. [[spoiler:And to the White Wizard in their final battle.]]
* BigBrotherMentor: To Yuzuru.
* BigEater: Deconstructed. He needs to keep eating not just regular food, but the mana from phantoms as well, or else he will die.
* [[spoiler:BroughtDownToBadass: Sacrificing his powers to stop the second Sabbath doesn't stop him from kicking Ghoul butt in the finale.]]
* ButtMonkey: In ''and'' out of combat.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Now, it's lunchtime!" and "Stop! Don't say it!"
** Haruto finally lampshades Nitoh's "Stop! Don't say it!" in episode 47.
** Less often, but still frequent, is [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste "A pinch is the same as a chance".]]
* CurbStompBattle: On the receiving end of ''two'' from [[spoiler:the White Wizard.]] [[spoiler:He makes up for it with a sacrifice play in round three.]]
* DanceBattler: Not prominent, but Beast is somehow able to do so during #26 against Medusa.
** It could be possibly explained as because the suit actor, Jun Watanabe, is acting for Beast and Medusa, so the producers probably had to get either Takaiwa or Eitoku to suit up as Beast.
* DealWithTheDevil: Accepts an offer from Sora to help find the White Wizard.
* DitzyGenius: Tends to lose his train of thought and go off on weird tangents making you forget that he is a skilled fighter and a talented archeologist.
* DualWielding: In Episode 43 he was able to use both the Dice Saber and the Mirage Magnum as Beast Hyper. This combination makes the [[InvincibleHero White Wizard]] treat him as a threat.
* {{Expy}}: Of the [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ryuki Riders]] with his relationship with Chimera.
* {{Familiar}}: His Griffin [=PlaMonster=].
* FriendToAllChildren
* FunSize: Rolling one on the Dice Sabre cause the sole animal to be chibi-sized. Only fun to watch it [[EpicFail being unable to finish the foe off]], though.
* GenreThrowback: His henshin pose is a more elaborate series of movements similar to the Showa era Kamen Rider shows.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: Whenever the subject of the Engage Rings come up, he comments on how he doesn't want another dude [[WithThisRing putting a ring on his hand]] or vice-versa.
** This may have to do with the StealthPun with the Engage Ring.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He sets Chimera free to stop the second Sabbath. Even Chimera didn't know what would happen to Nitoh afterwards, but in the end Nitoh just loses his powers.]] In a way, [[spoiler:he and Haruto are even, doing something to protect the other at the cost of their powers.]]
* HiddenDepths: Episodes that focus on him tend to show that he's not as angst-free about his condition as he acts.
* {{Keet}}: Until Episode 42.
* {{Kiai}}: Shouts out ''gao'' when he attacks, which is Japanese onomatopoeia for a lion's roar.
* KidAppealCharacter: He started out as one, being a competent Shunpei, but grows out of it after Yuzuru's kidnapping and becoming an unfettered AntiHero.
* KungFuWizard[=/=]MagicKnight: depends on how you look at it.
* LargeHam: There are many times where you can see his hamminess, such as when he was telling the time he got his Beast Driver, or, more commonly, his Henshin call.
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: His basic attitude is that danger comes with opportunity.
* LetsGetDangerous: Tends to suffer from lack of focus but when the situation calls for it he'll get serious. Best shown with the Legion situation.
** Slyphi's crimes made him become extremely dangerous.
** By Episode 42 you'll wonder if he's the same person with how serious, angry, and dangerous he's become.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: When he first arrived, he knew next to nothing about Phantoms except Chimera eats them. Until Haruto fills him in, this was part of the reason for their conflict.
* MagicalGirl: To hide his identity from his grandmother, he resorted to calling himself this.
* MoreDakka: A normal Saber Strike summons the number of mana creatures he rolls on the Dice Saber. A Hyper Saber Strike takes that number and ''multiplies it by four'' (the number rolled per each of his Mantles).
* MultiformBalance: Rather than a form change, he uses capes with different abilities called "Mantles".
** JackOfAllStats: Beast (no Mantle)
** FragileSpeedster: Falco
** ConfusionFu: Chameleo
** MightyGlacier: Buffa
** SquishyWizard: Dolphi [[note]]Not much has been seen of this mantle, but it seems to have combat and [[HealingHands healing skills]], as well as other "tricks".[[/note]]
** SuperMode: Beast Hyper (no Mantle)
** FightingClown: Wizard Style (no Mantle) [[note]]Beast's default form with the [[BadassLongcoat Land Overcoat]] and [[WolverineClaws Drago Hell Claws]].[[/note]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he discovers Phantoms emerging from a Gate '''kills''' them, something he didn't know when he unwittingly aided the Phantoms.
* MyGreatestFailure: In episode #31, he considers [[spoiler:being unable to stop Dragon from being killed by Legion]] this.
** This has been replaced by Yuzuru's kidnapping at [[spoiler:the White Wizard's]] hands. It has turned him into an unfettered, hardcore, AntiHero.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The rest of the cast is very creeped out at how serious he is after Yuzuru's kidnapping.
* PhlebotinumDependence
* PoorCommunicationKills: All of the conflict he creates comes from his inability to listen to other people.
* PowerAtAPrice: Chimera granted him the power to fight Phantoms through the Beast Driver, but requires that Kosuke regularly feed him the mana of defeated monsters.
* PowerupLetdown:
** Rolling a one on his Dice Sabre. The single creature it summons isn't enough even to annoy a Phantom.
*** Subverted the third time, though, where with his HeroicWillpower, it becomes much more powerful.
** His Hyper Form has some aspects of this, as it's stronger but doesn't have access to his Mantles and is therefore less versatile.
* [[PunyEarthlings Puny Archtype]]: The White Wizard spits this insult at Beast's face during their fights.
* [[spoiler: RePower: In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' he recaptures Chimera offscreen and becomes Beast again.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Haruto's blue.
* RingOfPower: Allows him to transform and switch powers. Rather than having Styles like Wizard, he has Mantles, which influences his power depending on what half-cape he dons on his right side.
** ''Beast Ring'': When inserted into the Beast Driver and turned, this ring opens the buckle and activates the transformation.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls on the Beast Driver.
** ''Falco Ring'': Equips Beast with the Falco Mantle.
** ''Chameleo Ring'': Equips Beast with the Chameleo Mantle.
** ''Buffa Ring'': Equips Beast with the Buffa Mantle.
** ''Dolphi Ring'': Equips Beast with the Dolphi Mantle.
** ''Griffon Ring'': Allows Beast to Summon the Green Griffon Plamonster. Interestingly, Nitoh has to use ''Driver On'' in order to summon Griffon.
** ''Chimerise Ring'': Summons [=BeastChimera=].
** ''Engage Ring'': Enables Beast to enter a Gate's Underworld.
** ''Hyper Ring'': Changes Beast into his [[SuperMode Hyper Style]] and arms him with the Mirage Magnum.
* TheRival: He viewed Haruto as this, mainly because he's off killing his food source and at the start believed he was snacking on Phantoms too. Though he seems to mean it in a [[FriendlyRival friendly or joking manner]]. He even says that rivals ought to give one another a hand every so often. He stopped being rivals with him once the Phantoms hit it too close to home and went after his grandmother.
** He also declared the White Wizard as a Rival upon meeting him, but let's face it, the White Wizard is way out of Nitoh's league. [[spoiler:As the White Wizard eventually proved; but Nitoh got the better of him when it counted.]]
* SecondRider
* SoLastSeason: Soon after he showed up, Haruto got access to the Drago Timer. [[spoiler:Even getting his SuperMode didn't help much, as one arc after Nitoh getting Hyper Beast, Haruto's set to get Infinity Style. Poor Nitoh.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks
* StepfordSmiler: Type A.
* SuperPrototype: Despite his Driver being ancient, he's shown to be about on par with Wizard's Dragon Forms. His Driver is far more limited in the number of rings he can use, however.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: All the time, usually to the effect of "I'm totally not doing X just so I can eat the Phantom!"
* SwordAndGun: He can pull out both the Dice Sabre and the Mirage Magnum in any form. He first use this style in #43.
* [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Trademark Favorite Condiment]]: Mayonnaise. He puts it on everything he eats, [[{{Squick}} even doughnuts]].
* TransformationTrinket: His Beast Driver and Beast Rings.
** This is played for laughs in his debut, as he forgets where he keeps his Rings.
* TranquilFury: This has replaced his KidAppealCharacter personality after Episode 42. And it is ''extremely'' creepy to see him with such DissonantSerenity. After Shunpei [[WhatTheHellHero calls him and Haruto out for their White Wizard-driven behavior]], he drops this.
* UnknownRival: To the White Wizard...[[spoiler:at first.]]
* UnstoppableRage: Whenever Nitoh gets angry his competence goes up a million fold.
** But even with such justified anger, [[spoiler:it's still not enough against the White Wizard. At least not until it really counts.]]
* [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: After #51, he's actually trying to track down Chimera. In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' it's revealed he recaptured Chimera [[OffscreeMomentOfAwesome offscreen.]]]]
* WeaponOfChoice
** RoyalRapier: Dice Saber
** CoolGuns: Mirage Magnum
* WhatAnIdiot: InUniverse example. This is what Haruto thinks of his plan to catch Raum with bird seed. He was proven right when Nitoh almost got eaten alive by crows.
* WrongContextMagic: His magic works differently than Haruto's in that he needs to eat Phantoms' Mana in order to survive. He originally thought ''all'' magic worked this way and his initial conflict with Haruto is largely due to this misunderstanding.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Beast Chimera/Chimera Phantom]]
->Voice Actor: TomomichiNishimura

Nitoh's Phantom, though unlike other Phantoms, it was not manifested within Nitoh. Instead, it was sealed inside the Beast Driver a long time ago, when magic and science were used together. It merged with Nitoh when he discovered and first used the Beast Driver.

* AnimalisticAbomination
* {{Badass}}: Nitoh outright calls him this.
* BondCreature: To Nitoh. In exchange for using his power, Nitoh needs to feed him the Mana from other Phantoms.
* BreathWeapon: Its Beast Laser attack fires a beam from each of its mouths.
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo: Invoked by Chimera after Kosuke breaks the Beast Driver as a last ditch attempt to stop the second Sabbath. Chimera also spared Kosuke from being eaten as a token of good will... and because Kosuke amused him.]]
* {{Expy}}: Reminiscent of the Hachibi (personality-wise, at least), contrasting Dragon's Kyubi.
* FinishingMove: ''[[ManBitesMan Biting End]]''
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Unlike Dragon, he feeds on other Phantoms (evidently for survival) of his own free will.
* [[ImAHumanitarian I'm A Phantomitarian]]: Eats other Phantoms.
** In ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' [[spoiler: he finds a new food: [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Helheim Fruits.]]]]
* KingOfBeasts: His primary animal motif.
* MixAndMatchCritter: Is composed of the various animals Beast's Mantles are based on.
* NobleDemon: Unlike Dragon, he seems a good bit less vicious and is a good deal more willing to cooperate with Nitoh. He just asks Nitoh to feed him the Mana from other Phantoms in return for lending him his powers. However if Nitoh fails to keep him filled, he will kill him.
** [[spoiler:Solidifies his position as this when Nitoh releases him from the Beast Driver to stop the second Sabbath. After doing so, Chimera tells him their deal is finished and Nitoh is free to go.]]
* SealedBadassInACan: Unlike Dragon, he's stuck in the belt, rather than the person. [[spoiler:Is released in #49, and turns out to be a rather nice guy.]]
** [[spoiler: Kouta is revealed to have re-sealed him in ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'']]

[[folder:Mayu Inamori/Kamen Rider Mage]]
->Live Actor: Erina Nakayama
->Suit Actor: Satoshi Fujita

The twin sister of Misa Inamori a.k.a. Medusa. She, like Haruto, managed to suppress her phantom and after training with the White Wizard, returns as a witch.

* ActionGirl
* AndThenWhat: Shes not sure what to do after [[spoiler: Medusa dies.]]
* {{Badass}}
* BigDamnHeroes: Her debut as Mage in Episode 40, intefering just in time before Medusa can finish Haruto off.
* BrokenBird
* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Medusa's Cain.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:The White Wizard said he will give her the means of defeating Medusa in trade for the Infinity Ring. She eventually tells Haruto about it...and he gives her the ring of his own free will]].
* DistressBall: Grabs it after TheReveal. She becomes so broken that she's easily kidnapped by [[spoiler: Fueki's latest Dragon, Yuzuru (a child).]]
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Kamen Rider Femme]], in that both are out to avenge the one who killed their older sister. [[spoiler:It becomes even more blatant after Fueki and Wiseman are revealed to not only be the same person, but also a Shirou Kanzaki Expy who, like Kanzaki, gave both people involved their powers.]]
* FauxActionGirl: [[spoiler: Became one after Medusa's defeat. Justified as she only becomes a magician just to avenge her family. She was distracted in her conflict with The White Wizard after his reveal. She gets better in the finale, and becomes Haruto's successor in Section Zero.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Kamen Rider Mage is nothing more than an overglorified mook. Looks like Toei is being lazy again, huh? WRONG! [[spoiler: Mage is based off of a pawn, and that's all Fueki see's Mayu as, she isn't a powerful bodyguard like Haruto was supposed to be, all she was needed for was as a sacrifice for a second Sabbath. Her form as Mage represents Fueki's true colors.]]
* NotSoDifferent: She and Medusa are both [[spoiler: emotionally dependent on the same person.]]
* PowerOfHate: This is what she really runs on.
* RevengeBeforeReason: She will get revenge on Medusa, no matter what. [[spoiler: Even if it means going to the White Wizard, while fully aware of some of the horrible things he's done.]]
* RingOfPower: Like with the White Wizard, most of her rings seem to be [[PropRecycling copied from other wizards]]:
** ''Mage Ring:'' The transformation ring.
** ''Driver On Ring'': Calls on the Mage Driver. Visually identical to Fueki's, even down to the deeper tone.
** ''Connect Ring'': Identical to both Wizard's and White Wizard's, it provides a link between two locations or people.
** ''[[BarrierWarrior Barrier Ring]]'': Allows Mage to create a strong defensive barrier. Again, identical to Wizard's Defend Ring and White Wizard's own Barrier Ring.
** ''Teleport Ring'': Allows MassTeleportation. Same as the White Wizard's.
** ''[[GravityMaster Gravity Ring]]'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. The same as Wizard's Gravity Ring, if he didn't just loan it to her to begin with.
** ''[[HolyHandGrenade Holy Ring]]'': Releases holy light that severely damages Phantoms.
* [[spoiler:TakeUpMySword: After Haruto leaves to go hide the PhilosophersStone, she takes his place as the Wizard protector of Tokyo.]]
* WeaponOfChoice
** SwissArmyWeapon: [=WizarSwordGun=]
** WolverineClaws: Scratch Nail

[[folder:Masanori Kizaki]]
->Live Actor: Naoki Kawano

The head of Section Zero who reluctantly helps out in the battle against the Phantoms.

!!!Tropes:

* [[spoiler: ConvenientComa]]: He gets better.
* DistressedDude: Of the non humorous variant.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Seems this way at first.
* HeKnowsTooMuch: [[spoiler: The White Wizard attacked him for prying into his identity.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Definitely.

[[/folder]]

!Phantoms

[[folder: General Tropes]]
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: Their plans are to kill people by driving them to the lowest point [[spoiler:so that there can be enough of them to force a ritual where multiple humans die and create Phantoms in their despair]]. The Phantoms that object to this only do so because they think it'd make more sense [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim if they just murder the people directly]] or just cause wanton destruction. Even Wizard's own Phantom, Wizardragon, goes on a rampage whenever it is summoned and needs to be tamed. Clinging onto the hope that some Phantoms are good or at least have some humanity? The show even goes out of its way to show that it's close to impossible, with some Phantoms faking their "humanity". [[spoiler:Yeah, there's one Phantom who has his humanity intact, but that's only because he was evil to begin with]].
** [[spoiler:Subverted by Wizardragon eventually, who makes a full HeelFaceTurn in #31.]]
* BecomingTheMask: To a certain degree. Many of the Lesser Phantoms have quirks based on their Gates occupation.
** Minotauros acted like a DirtyCop.
** Hellhound was rather dramatic while his Gate was a television host.
** Gnome acted like a sommelier.
** Valkyrie, whose Gate was a low-ranking store manager, acts like a ProfessionalButtKisser.
** Lizardman, whose Gate was a filmmaker, likes to "Cast" people as "Corpses".
** Manticore would read people's fortunes.
** Beelzebub was always acting like he was conducting music, or using music terms.
** Spriggan has been giving people words of caution, while acting like a DirtyCop.
** Sora/Gremlin was both a hair dresser and [[spoiler: SerialKiller]] as a human and continues to perform his second hobby as a Phantom, plus his Rapture blades resemble scissors...
** Raum, who can turn into a Myna Bird, still acts like an animal while in Phantom form.
** Sphinx was once a stage magician and continues to perform slight of hand magic even though he has the real deal now.
* BishonenLine: Instead of [[OneWingedAngel turning into a giant monster upon defeat]], Phantoms ''start'' as a giant rampaging monster tearing the victim's soul apart then take on humanoid form upon killing them and materializing into the real world.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "The human (''name of Gate'') died, giving birth to a Phantom... me", normally said upon a Phantom revealing their true identity, though precise wording may vary. Usually a WhamLine.
** "Let the fear of death drive you to despair!" whenever a Phantom can't think of a specific way to make a Gate despair.
* DespairEventHorizon: Are ''born'' when a person with supernatural potential is driven over this, tearing them apart from the inside out and killing them from within to materialize into the real world.
* {{Expy}}: The CoDragons are, in different ways, Expies to the same person: [[spoiler:Takeshi Asakura/Kamen Rider Ouja:]]
** [[spoiler:Phoenix is an Ax Crazy Blood Knight who simply wants to kill anyone he can.]]
** [[spoiler:Medusa is a Manipulative Bastard and shares the same relation to Mayu as Ouja did to Kamen Rider Femme, who Mayu is an Expy of.]]
** [[spoiler:Like Ouja, Sora was a very prolific serial killer before gaining supernatural powers and continued to be one.]]
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Don't expect any form of basic competency out of these nimrods.
* FiveBadBand: A four-man variation amongst the Higher Phantoms, with there being three CoDragons instead of one Dragon:
** BigBad: Wiseman
** EvilGenius: Medusa
** TheBrute: Phoenix
** DarkChick[=/=]SixthRangerTraitor: Gremlin
* HopeCrusher: By necessity, as it's the way to create new Phantoms.
* InNameOnly: Many of them have very little resemblance to the mythological creatures they're named after, except Bogy.
* KillAndReplace: Are born when their Gate suffers DeathByDespair, then masquerade as them to try and drive others over the DespairEventHorizon and create more. The extent to which they take the "replace" part depends on their plan and the Phantom's particular host. If a Phantom's host knew the target Gate, or had some special status in society, they will use that, but many Phantoms will reveal themselves immediately upon encountering the Gate.
* MadeOfEvil: Well made of despair and dark magic.
* OneWingedAngel: Inverted. The monster that Wizard just killed doesn't transform, he travels into their victim's [[MentalWorld Underworld]] and fights their yet to be fully awakened Phantom, who ''is'' a giant monster.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent.
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: The Lesser Phantoms have become noticeably stronger as the story progresses. Originally Haruto fought jokes like Minotaur, Lizardman, and Hydra that only lasted as long as they did because of his ego, followed by Phantoms that could actually put up a fight like Spriggan, Bogy, Argus, and Raum, and now we have guys like Bahamut who is as strong as ''Phoenix'' after multiple revivals.
** Once Gremlin got promoted, he started choosing stronger Phantoms with tricky powers (such as Bogy and Raum), and Medusa started choosing more powerful ones to try and outdo him.
* ThatManIsDead: Phantoms normally state that the person they were born from "died a long time ago" upon revealing their true identity.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: All the Sabbath victims were implied to be decent people at least, as the sole exception who survived the ritual and became a phantom himself was [[spoiler:a serial killer to begin with.]]
* [[spoiler: UnwittingPawn: The entire freaking race.]]
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Played with; some of the Phantoms are smart and clever, using their wits to make the Gates despair. However, there are some who tend to do what Phoenix does and beat the living crap out of their Gates, hoping that them going through a near-death experience will cause them to cross the DespairEventHorizon, hence their catchphrase. Sora actually takes note of this, called out a Phantom for doing this tactic when the Gate was perfectly willing to turn into a Phantom (as she wouldn't despair and attacking her will just kill her) and hires Phantoms that specialize in emotional manipulation. [[spoiler:Until he gets the Philosopher's Stone. Then he decides to cut the middleman and do the same tactic as his brethren]].

[[folder:Wiseman]]
->Live Actor: [[spoiler:Narushi Ikeda]]\\
Voice Actor: Creator/ToshioFurukawa\\
Suit Actor: Jun Watanabe.

The Carbuncle Phantom and the group's mysterious leader, who is trying to find Gates to send into despair and create new Phantoms for some unknown purpose. [[spoiler:In actuality, he is the White Wizard, trying to find Gates to ''resist'' despair and become new wizards to use in his second Sabbath.]]

!!!Tropes:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* {{Badass}}
* BigBad: He's the one calling the shots amongst the Phantoms. He was also the one behind the dark ritual that led to the creation of so many Phantoms.
* [[spoiler: CastAsAMask: His voice actor.]]
* TheChessmaster
* DegradedBoss: Clones of him appear in the Movie War but the Mages are each able to match one and Ogre [[CurbstompBattle devours three of them with no effort]]. Justified as they seem to just be mindless beasts compared to the original.
* ElectricTorture: His main use of his ShockAndAwe power.
* EnergyAbsorption
* EvilSoundsDeep
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: See LightIsNotGood; it's hinting to his identity as the White Wizard.]]
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: In his first appearance on the show, all we saw was his shadow behind a large white curtain.
** His human form was still subject to the "silhouette only" manner of appearance for a long time after that.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Case in point, even ''Medusa'' doesn't seem to know what his true plans are. Gremlin suggests it might have something to do with [[spoiler:the mythical PhilosophersStone]].
** His goal also seems to be to hold another Sabbath, the very same ritual that created so many Phantoms in the first place. He claims he can do this without an eclipse if he has enough Phantoms with him.
** And then Gremlin comes to the conclusion [[spoiler: that this ''isn't'' his true goal. It turns out his goal is to save Koyomi, his daughter.]]
* HumanoidAbomination: [[spoiler: Subverted; the Carbuncle Phantom was an artificially-created Phantom that Fueki implanted into himself. Fueki is ''still'' human... which just makes his lack of scruples even worse.]]
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:Killing Medusa because they had finally made enough Wizards for Fueki's real plans.]]
* KillerRabbit: He is the Carbuncle Phantom.
* LightIsNotGood: His Phantom form is colored in white, and before that was only shown as just a silhouette bathed in light, but he's no good guy.
* ManipulativeBastard: "You're the only one I can trust, Medusa."
* [[spoiler:MysteriousBacker: He's the one generating the stones that become Haruto's Dragon Rings, and he actually wants them to fall into his hands. As it turns out, he's the White Wizard.]]
* NonActionBigBad: He has been extremely hands-off and left most of the grunt work to Phoenix and Medusa, then gets out in #30 to confront Gremlin personally over his release of Legion, and [[spoiler:he stops to chat with Gremlin]]. Even when Haruto tracks him down in #36, he just drains his mana to drive him off. [[spoiler:He's more active as the White Wizard.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Episode #22 reveals that he follows this trope, with him unhappy about Phoenix's rampage because he might kill another Gate, though lets him rampage when he realizes he just wants to fight Wizard and thus have either option (Wizard or Phoenix being defeated) go in his favor.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Has segments on his body that seem to be composed of some purple jewel.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A villainous example. In the Flame Dragon debut arc, he understood that Phoenix was fed up with the manipulative approach and rolled with it, directing him to an appropriate target for his wrath.
* TheReveal: Who is the Wiseman? [[spoiler:Fueki, the White Wizard.]]
* [[spoiler:TheUnfought: As Wiseman, Haruto only fought Fueki once. Their final confrontation had him in his White Wizard form.]]
** [[spoiler: ''Film/KamenRiderXKamenRiderGaimAndWizardTheFatefulSengokuMovieBattle'' reveals [[CloningBlues that several Carbuncle Phantoms were created,]] which the Riders then fight. However, the Carbuncle Phantoms [[DegradedBoss are not as powerful as Wiseman.]]]]
* [[spoiler:RunningBothSides]]
* ShockAndAwe: Can generate electricity, as shown when he is dealing with Gremlin.

[[folder:Phoenix]]
->Live Actor: Atsumi

An energetic and unhinged Greater Phantom. He is the most powerful Phantom currently active, and uses his strength to intimidate lesser Phantoms into doing his bidding. He was born from Yugo Fujita, a quiet, hard-working man with a love for flowers.

!!!Tropes:
* [[spoiler: AndIMustScream: Subverted when Medusa turned him into stone, then played straight when Kamen Rider Wizard kicked him to the sun.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As a Greater Phantom, he is one of the most powerful.
* AxCrazy: He is rather unhinged, best shown with the way he almost beat the VictimOfTheWeek to death in #8. Medusa is hesitant to let him go after Gates because he's so psychopathic she's afraid he'll kill them! He also states repeatedly he's frustrated at having to wait to do go on the rampage.
* BackFromTheDead: Every time he gets destroyed by Wizard, he comes back... He's a Phoenix! [[AnimalMotifs What would you expect?]]
* {{Badass}}: Easily one of Wizard's most powerful opponents.
** BadassMustache: In human form only.
** BadassBeard: Well, Badass Goatee in human form once more.
** TookALevelInBadass: Everytime time he dies and comes back he is noticeably stronger. He doesn't just adapt--he becomes stronger in all areas. Best shown when it took ''three'' finishing moves in a row in Water Dragon Style to take him down a second time.
* BattleAura: After his third revival he's able to generate an aura of {{Hellfire}} to defend himself from attacks.
* {{BFS}}: Uses a large sword called Catastrophe in battle.
* BloodKnight: Flat out admits in #16 that he doesn't care about the Gate, he just wants to fight Haruto.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Medusa; he's the Brawn.
* TheBrute: With Wiseman as the BigBad, the violently psychopathic Phoenix is just the Phantoms' muscle.
* CameBackStrong: According to him, every time he revives he becomes stronger. He proves this in #16, by taking on Flame Dragon's FinishingMove which previously killed him without taking any damage.
** Worse? [[spoiler:By the third time, he's grown so powerful it takes him ''seconds'' to regenerate.]]
* ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:His defeat not only marks Haruto mastering Dragon's power fully with his All Dragon (an arc that began with his first battle with Phoenix), but the whole ordeal is presented in a very climactic light as well.]]
* CoDragons: With Medusa.
* EvilCounterpart:
** Can be seen as one to Wizard and all Riders in general; it's suit looks like what a HenshinHero would look like, he's red and gold to Wizard's default red and silver, he wants to spread despair while Wizard is the HopeBringer, and both use fire.
** He's also one to Nitoh. Both Phoenix and Nitoh care about something else rather than their objective (bringing about despair and stopping the latter respectively) and both are pretty boisterous about it. The only difference is that Nitoh stopped and began to focus on his objective while Phoenix went for his ambition [[spoiler:and landed in the sun]].
* [[spoiler:FateWorseThanDeath: Haruto, in his All Dragon form, sends Phoenix to the sun, where he will be trapped forever, stuck in a constant cycle of death and rebirth, whilst surrounded by burning hot flames every time he comes back. This is quite possibly the harshest fate a Rider has given to his arch-enemy in the history of the franchise, but considering he seems to be truly immortal, this is quite possibly the ''only'' way he could be beaten.]]
* ForTheEvulz: Admits that driving Gates into despair is mainly an excuse for him to spread havoc and destruction when Wiseman brings it up.
* [[spoiler:FireAndBrimstoneHell]]: His fate, for all intents and purposes. [[spoiler:Except it's far, ''far'' from Hell]].
* GeniusDitz: He is most definitely not a rocket scientist but in a straight up fight he's brilliant, able to block Wizard's {{Finishing Move}}s after only seeing them once.
* GenreSavvy: To a limited degree, it mostly comes from being a BloodKnight but he was the one who said that the Phantoms should have just killed Wizard on Day One.
* TheHeavy: Wiseman gives him and Medusa some direction, but otherwise leaves them to their own devices.
* [[spoiler:HurlItIntoTheSun]]: His final fate.
* [[InnocentFlowerGirl Innocent Flower Guy]]: Yugo, before becoming Phoenix. The life-threatening part was his high magic potential to become a Phantom.
* [[spoiler:IronicHell: The fire-powered Phantom obsessed with causing nonstop death and destruction is left [[SealedEvilInACan trapped in the sun]] where he will be killed over and over again forever by solar flames.]]
* {{Irony}}: In #20, Yugo's boss believed that he "wouldn't hurt anyone". Oh, if only he knew...
** [[spoiler: Also, in his first fight with Wizard, he boasted about his Hellfire. When Wizard finally beats him, Phoenix is stuck on the sun, surrounded by the hottest flames there are.]]
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Invoked by Phoenix himself. After being hit by a FinishingMove, he'll instantly figure out a way to block it. Ultimately subverted when Wizard finally defeats him. [[spoiler:Even if he could survive the sun's flames a second time, he isn't going anywhere]].
* KickedUpstairs: All things considered, while he was brought up to {{Co Dragon|s}} status, it's only so that he doesn't wind up killing Gates and destroying the place.
* KnightOfCerebus: While past Phantoms were definitely not nice. Phoenix is an AxCrazy monster who is definitely monstrous even by Phantom standards. The two episodes where he took center stage had a large amount of blood, gore and destruction for a toku show. To finish off his KnightOfCerebus status he is disturbingly brutal. He brutalizes anyone in his way. Best shown when he invades the hospital. He went out of his way to maul the hospital staff and attacked a person in a wheelchair. Also, unlike other Phantoms, he doesn't particularly care about driving Gates into despair, [[ForTheEvulz he just enjoys causing havoc and destruction.]]
** Any episode that he is the main villain of tends to lack the funny scenes that other episodes usually have.
* NoSell: To Medusa's TakenForGranite vision and most of Wizard's arsenal.
* PlayingWithFire: Not just any fire, according to him, it's {{Hellfire}}. It's a lot stronger than Haruto's.
* PowerGivesYouWings: After his fourth revival he gains the ability to make huge energy wings that almost vaporize Wizard.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type E.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Medusa's blue. (One of two)
* ResurrectiveImmortality: His special ability, he ''can't'' be killed for good and will simply revive stronger than before. In the end, the only way Haruto can permanently stop him is by [[spoiler:throwing him into the sun and trapping him there.]]
* [[spoiler:SealedEvilInACan: Since he's immortal and ''can't'' die, Haruto is forced to throw him into the sun to defeat him once and for all, trapping him there forever.]]
* StoryBreakerPower: His CameBackStrong immortality is completely broken, if he was allowed to stay on the show he would have eventually become more powerful than the entire cast combined to the point of being a PhysicalGod.
* TemptingFate: Phoenix proudly proclaimed that even with Wizard's new Drago Timer, he can never destroy him fully. [[spoiler:So he didn't.]]
* TooPowerfulToLive: Seriously, when you think about it he would have eventually become a god far stronger than even the White Wizard if he was allowed to last the whole series.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: This, before Yugo fell to despair and became Phoenix.
* WouldHitAGirl: More like beat a woman an inch away from death.
** WouldHurtAChild: ...in order to psychologically destroy her son.

[[folder:Medusa]]
->Live Actor: Erina Nakayama

A cruel and calculating Greater Phantom. She has the ability to perceive Gates, humans with magical potential who can be transformed into Phantoms. She was born from a high-school girl named Misa Inamori.

!!!Tropes:

* [[spoiler: AlasPoorVillain: While she was a callous manipulator who would kill a pregnant woman without a second thought, she did it all for Wiseman, and was truly loyal to him in a way you would think only a NobleDemon could be. Her death at Wiseman's hands was truly heartbreaking given that he revealed that she served a lie all of her life as she died crying at the hands of the only person she ever cared about.]]
* AnimalBattleAura: She can create giant mana constructs in the shape of snakes to attack her opponents.
* {{Archenemy}}: Mayu's main goal in life is to kill her.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: As a Greater Phantom, she's naturally one of the strongest Phantoms.
* {{Badass}}: Seems to be a requirement to be one of Wiseman's Dragons. She took out Haruto as easily as Phoenix did.
* BerserkButton: She doesn't like to be tricked by someone else. When Gremlin tricks her and Wizard into fighting each other without her knowledge, she outright tries to kill Gremlin.
* BoringButPractical: Her fighting style might not be as flashy and badass as Phoenix's, but with her ability to drain mana she can easily deprive the Kamen Riders of their {{Super Mode}}s, leaving them vulnerable.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Phoenix; she's the Brains.
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Mayu's Abel.
* CoDragons: With Phoenix, then later (to her horror) with Gremlin.
** [[spoiler: DemotedToDragon: Gremlin is her superior now, so she is effectively TheDragon to TheDragon.]]
* ComplexityAddiction: Her FatalFlaw. There have been multiple times where she could have just killed Haruto. But nope, he has to die in some overcomplicated plot trying to save the VictimOfTheWeek.
** This does have some justification, though, as it's likely she'd want to at least try to drive Haruto to despair in order to break Dragon out of him. In later episodes she seems to have learned and tries to find ways to get Wizard out of the way with as little collateral as possible, like telling Manticore to finish Haruto when he's helpless or attempting to get the two Riders to fight and take each other out.
* CreepyMonotone: Speaks like this unless Gremlin/Sora is screwing around or Wiseman is complimenting her.
* DarkActionGirl: Kicks Haruto's ass with little effort.
* [[spoiler:DeathByDespair: While not explicitly stated, after being stabbed InTheBack by Wiseman, she crosses the DespairEventHorizon and instead of [[DefeatEqualsExplosion exploding like any other Phantom when killed]], she [[NoBodyLeftBehind crumbles into ash in a similar way that Gates who become Phantoms die.]]]]
* {{Determinator}}: Anything for Wiseman.
* EnergyAbsorption: Able to drain mana with the use of her snake hairs.
* {{Expy}}: To [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Mezool]] ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS or Mezuru, Mezul]]). Both are blue and water themed as well as their personalities match.
* EvilGenius: Between her and Phoenix, she's usually the one to come up with the plans.
* [[spoiler: EvilTwin: Is this to Misa's sister Mayu.]]
** EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler:She has the same amount of devotion towards the Wiseman as Mayu does for the White Wizard, with the added bonus that they're the same guy.]]
* GenreSavvy: In #40, she averts TransformationIsAFreeAction attacking Wizard right as he starts up the Drago Timer and would have killed him if Mayu hadn't intervened.
* TheHeavy: Wiseman gives her and Phoenix some direction, but otherwise leaves them to their own devices. Of the two, she seems to be in charge, if only because Phoenix is a PsychopathicManchild. She becomes the sole Heavy for a while between Phoenix's defeat and Gremlin's promotion.
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler:The master manipulator spent the entire season being manipulated by Fueki as Wiseman, and for part of it by Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: Her first act upon becoming a Phantom was to kill her Gate's parents in an act of sadism. She dies when the closest thing to a father figure she has stabs her InTheBack while she was seriously wounded by her Gate's sister.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* LoveMartyr: In a sense she's this for Wiseman. She lives for his love and approval and follows downright suicidal orders just to gain simple compliments.
* MagicStaff: Fights with a scepter called [[MeaningfulName Arrogant]].
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: If Phoenix can't intimidate a Phantom into doing their job, she'll manipulate them into getting the job done. And it's clearly shown that she considers everyone around her a pawn, even her {{CoDragon|s}}, Phoenix. In episodes eight and nine she manipulates him like she manipulates Lesser Phantoms [[spoiler: but in #16, Phoenix calls her out on it]].
** She also pulls this trope on Nitoh and [[LetsYouAndHimFight gets him to fight Haruto]].
* {{Medusa}}
** GorgeousGorgon: Nitoh's first reaction to her human form was even "Whoa, she's a cutie". Her Phantom form isn't exactly hideous, either.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler: Her attempts to make a Phantom from Mayu blew up in her face because she didn't expect two things: Mayu using her HeroicWillpower to suppress the Phantom inside her, the reason being that she told her that she's just a monster pretending to be Misa, which led to said willpower, and the White Wizard himself appearing and teleporting Mayu away, presumably to make her an apprentice. Let's just say that in the near future, Medusa's gonna have to go through ''three'' Kamen Riders.]]
** [[spoiler: Subverted. Turns out everything was going according to plan, so she never fixed anything.]]
* OhCrap: Has a mixture of this and ThisIsGonnaSuck when she finds out [[spoiler:Wiseman promoted Gremlin and he's now her ''boss''.]]
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She's easily the sanest Phantom, lacking any of the insanities, besides her ComplexityAddiction, that plague the others (well, for someone who wants to kill people to create monsters) - but this trope shows considerably since her partner is an AxCrazy PsychopathicManchild and half of the Phantoms employed use their job as an excuse to beat up their target.
* PetTheDog: Her only humanizing trait is her genuine, loyalty and love for Wiseman.
* PsychoticSmirk: Flashes one worthy of Gremlin when she realizes that a Gate has a pregnant wife.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Her more powerful spells are purple.
* PrehensileHair: Has very long hair in human form which becomes weaponized in Phantom form as sentient snake hair that can rip through [[MightyGlacier Land Style's]] Defend spells like they're made of wet tissue paper.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Phoenix and Gremlin's red.
* [[spoiler: SelfMadeOrphan: Reveals to Mayu she killed their parents, in order to send her into despair and release a new Phantom. She almost got away with it too.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: She is the only female phantom to appear [[spoiler:until Siren gets called]]. Despite the previous ritual have women too, this trope is played straight.
* TheStoic: Always keeps her cool and speaks in a CreepyMonotone unless...
** NotSoStoic: Sora/Gremlin really makes her lose her cool. Mainly because he annoys her rather than his usual schtick.
* TakenForGranite: She ''is'' based on Medusa.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: While she and Phoenix never formed a VillainousFriendship and were as different as night and day, they could at least get along with each other and form a cohesive unit. After Phoenix becomes... 'indisposed' then Gremlin starts meddling and Medusa ''hates'' every second of it. [[spoiler:Her OhCrap reaction to finding out he's been ''promoted'' to her boss]] speaks volumes.
* ThisCannotBe: Her reaction to Phoenix {{No Sell}}ing her TakenForGranite ability.
** And again, when [[spoiler: Mayu actually overcomes her despair and suppresses her Phantom.]]
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: [[spoiler:Her reaction to Gremlin/Sora becoming not only her [[CoDragons Co Dragon]] but her ''superior'', meaning she'll have to take orders from him.]]
* TranquilFury: After [[spoiler: Gremlin/Sora becomes her boss]] she spends all of her time in a state of barely controlled hatred and rage.
* TheVamp
* UndyingLoyalty: To Wiseman. She both shows it and enforces it in other Phantoms. [[spoiler:This is the reason why she goes after Phoenix for going rogue, and part of her annoyance with Gremlin.]]
* [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn: Was one to Fueki.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: After countless setbacks, what it took for her to finally lose it was to be betrayed by the only person she cared about.]]
** [[spoiler:It started a bit earlier when she sees the latest Gate suppress his Phantom and finally decides to just wipe the Riders out.]]
* VillainousFriendship: Type III with Wiseman. Medusa worships the ground Wiseman walks on and seems to be in love with him, Wiseman doesn't give a crap and simply uses these feelings to better manipulate Medusa.
* WeHaveReserves: She really doesn't seem to care how many Phantoms die by Wizard's hands despite there being a limited amount of them.
* WellDoneDaughterGal: One way to see her relationship with Wiseman.
* WomenAreWiser: Especially if compared to Phoenix.
** Zigzagged if compared to Gremlin/Sora, however. Gremlin seems to be a PsychopathicManchild [[spoiler: and we got to see it true in #35]], but this is the ManChild that not only tricked Medusa, but also [[spoiler:Wiseman into making him the sole [[TheDragon Dragon]], with Medusa serving under Sora as the result.]]
* [[spoiler:WomanScorned: Of a partner instead of her significant other variant, where she got tricked by Gremlin. Subverted when her attacks couldn't even reach him.]]
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Gets offed by Wiseman/Fueki mainly because she's finished doing what he wants: creating more mages for his master plan.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sora Takigawa/Gremlin]]
->Live Actor: Takahisa Maeyama

A strangely playful Phantom with an unclear alignment. A sometimes-ally to Wiseman's forces; he seems to have an interest in Haruto increasing his power, [[spoiler:such as giving Section Zero the stone for Hurricane Dragon or giving Koyomi the magic stone for the fourth and final Dragon Style]], but is otherwise manipulating all parties involved for some reason. He was born from [[spoiler:(or in fact, ''is'') a serial killer named]] Sora Takigawa who worked as a hairdresser, and is currently trying to get close to Wiseman in order to get some information from him. Unlike most Phantoms, [[spoiler:Sora considers himself a different case as he has kept all of his gate's traits and personality, making him feel more human than Phantom; and in fact wants to regain his lost humanity.]]

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Everyone hates his guts to different degrees. Phoenix can barely stand him, the only reason why he's still alive is because he has blackmail on Wiseman, Medusa wants him dead, and every heroic character hates seeing him, and treats him with complete disdain. This hate is completely justified on multiple degrees. One degree is that he is generally annoying to them, the other degree is that he's a third party and nearly screwed up Wiseman's plans by freeing Legion, and the third degree, the ones that the heroes are on, is that [[spoiler:he used to be a SerialKiller before being a Phantom... and still is]].
** By [[spoiler: #50, practically everyone wants him dead for his heinous actions]].
* AmbiguouslyEvil: He was this for a long time, as he has his own agenda apart from Wiseman's, and helped Haruto and trolled his fellow Phantoms as often as he did the reverse. #34 muddied the waters further, having him claim that he kept his humanity, before #35 settled the issue: [[spoiler:human or Phantom, he's still a monster.]]
* AndThenWhat: Is the first Phantom to wonder aloud why they're trying to hold another Sabbath on Wiseman's orders.
* ArchEnemy: He has become this to Haruto after being outed as a [[spoiler: SerialKiller]]. Haruto attacks him with much more hatred and malice than he did Phoenix.
* [[spoiler: AxCrazy: #35 establishes that he's just as nuts as Phoenix, he's just better at hiding it.]]
* {{Badass}}: Very badass when you think it over. [[spoiler:Unlike other Phantoms he wasn't preprogramed with any skills and his power set is rather weak but through pure cunning, willpower, sheer determination, and brass tacks he takes down the White Wizard all by himself through his own efforts. He'd be a MagnificentBastard if he wasn't so annoying.]]
* BadBoss: Hinted at when Raum feared failing him. Confirmed when he let Slyphi die after he had outlived his usefulness with his trademark smile on his face.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:Yes, Fueki was sympathetic, but he was also a self-centered mass murderer and EntitledBastard, there was no way that Haruto could have come up with a morally correct solution to deal with him. Good thing Gremlin came along and sorted all those pesky moral problems by killing Fueki, am I right?]]
* BatmanGambit: A master of this trope. All of his plans rely on predicting how a person will act based on their personality, from Phoenix's impulsiveness, Medusa's loyalty, to the Kamen Riders ChronicHeroSyndrome.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his silly personality and playful attitude, when he gets promoted to [[CoDragons CoDragon]] [[spoiler:and Medusa's superior]], his plans turn out to be surprisingly crafty and deadly compared to Phoenix and Medusa's. [[spoiler:He's also even ''more'' AxCrazy than Phoenix with a ''huge'' body count.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing. Twice over. at first he seems like the Phantoms AffablyEvil TokenGoodTeammate but then he's revealed to be [[spoiler: TheSociopath and a SerialKiller before he was a Phantom, but at least he follows PragmaticVillainy, right? Wrong, it's later revealed that he beats up little girls for fun and is just a sadistic prick underneath his superficial charm.]]
* CampStraight: This becomes a plot point...
* {{Catchphrase}}: A very Engrish-y "Hello~" with a little wave.
* CharacterDevelopment: Inverted. As his character arc unfolds we learn more and more about who he was [[spoiler: up until TheReveal where he shows what a monster he is and begins to drop his MaskOfSanity showing what an ass he really is. This is justified, because Sora is a low-functioning sociopath, and is incapable of developing as a character.]]
* TheChessmaster[=/=]IndyPloy: It's never revealed if Sora had everything planned out from the start, if he was making things it up as he went along, or making calculated risks, guesses, and gambits, or if he ever played XanatosSpeedChess.
* ChromaticArrangement: Green, which contrasts nicely with Phoenix's red and Medusa's blue.
* CoolSword: Originally his Rapture blades, [[spoiler:but after taking out the White Wizard he switches out for the much cooler Hamel Cane.]]
* DarkChick: At first, but he defies it later on.
* DeathGlare: Gives one to Argus when he tries to attack a Gate that he wants to protect...[[spoiler:so he could kill her himself.]]
* [[spoiler: DeliberateInjuryGambit: Provokes the White Wizard into stabbing him in #50 so he can steal the Hamel Cane, thus letting him take the Philosopher's Stone.]]
* {{Determinator}}: After all of his plans fall apart instead of whining he drops being a SissyVillain and shows some serious balls when he risks himself in direct confrontation with the [[WorldsStrongestMan White Wizard]].
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: [[spoiler:He successfully blackmailed Wiseman with unknown information, and with it, became Wiseman's highest-ranking [[TheDragon Dragon]]. That said, Wiseman is only using the deal to control Sora, and has no intention of upholding his end of the bargain.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler:He killed a girl just because she rejected him. And continues killing similar girls with black hair and white dresses.]]
* DoNotCallMePaul: His name isn't Gremlin, it's Sora.
* TheDragon: Not at first, but he worms his way into being one of Wiseman's lieutenants.
** CoDragons: Alongside Medusa. In fact, [[spoiler:he's her superior.]]
** DragonWithAnAgenda: As far as we can tell, he's playing everyone against each other. See HiddenAgendaVillain.
** [[spoiler:TheStarscream: Once he realizes Wiseman won't give him the Philosopher's Stone.]]
*** [[spoiler:DragonAscendant: Kills Wiseman[=/=]Fueki and becomes Haruto's final opponent.]]
* DualWielding: Wields twin swords called [[AllThereInTheManual Rapture]] in battle, which together look like a pair of scissor blades...
** SwordBeam
* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: Gave up [[spoiler:the Land Dragon stone]] with little to no explanation. The next episode has him pleased that Haruto's achieved all four Dragon Styles, though ''why'' was never made clear.
** Episode 34 reveals [[spoiler: that he was also the one who supplied the Hurricane Dragon stone to Kizaki's boss as well.]]
* EnigmaticMinion
* EvilCounterpart: Sora is this to Haruto. [[spoiler:Both of them clung onto their humanities after the Sabbath, but through differing means. The driving force of what sets these two apart is what they ''do'' with their new found change. Whereas Haruto uses his Phantom to help save people from other Phantoms, Sora wants to get rid of it and become a human again]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: Whenever he gets really serious his voice noticeably deepens.
* EvilLaugh: An extremely psychotic one has replaced his giggles by Episode 42.
* EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler: Sora is this to his own Phantom. Phantoms are twisted evil parodies of their Gate. But Sora was such a monster that there was nothing that could make him worse so he got to stay in control.]]
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CompositeCharacter: He's the love child of [[Series/KamenRiderFourze JK]] and [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters Enter.]]
** After Episode 35, you can add [[spoiler: SweeneyTodd]] and [[spoiler: Ted Bundy]] to that list.
* [[spoiler: FauxAffablyEvil]]: [[spoiler: He has this charm about him that makes him likeable, but it only highlights his own madness and insanity when you know the real him.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Of sorts; he has a tendency to call Phantoms by their Gates' names. He also prefers to called by his own Gate's name.
* FlashStep: Displays an ability similar to this, often using it to leap out of reach of someone he's approached and to run on walls.
* {{Foil}}: To Haruto since [[spoiler: he claims to still have his human heart even though his body changes into a phantom, making his a human trapped in a Phantom body as opposed to a Phantom trapped in a human's body like Haruto. In the final episode, he even tells Haruto he's fighting for his own hope.]]
* FriendlyEnemy: Due to [[WildCard his nature]], he is sometimes this to Haruto, doing such things as [[spoiler:giving him the Land Dragon stone]] or wishing him luck in a coming fight. For the same reasons, he's sometimes a pretty nasty enemy.
* [[spoiler:FromNobodyToNightmare: Started out as a normal guy who then became a dangerous SerialKiller. He then [[OneWingedAngel became a Phantom]], becoming even more dangerous.]]
* GigglingVillain
* GripingAboutGremlins
* HiddenAgendaVillain: He's running his own plan apart from Wiseman's. What's odd is that Wiseman finds out and ''lets'' him do it.
** He later tells Medusa that his dream [[spoiler: is to use the PhilosophersStone to become human - Wiseman knows he wants the Stone and is using it to ensure his cooperation.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: The White Wizard gored him through and pinned him to a tree, but thanks to his trademark determination he survived.]]
* TheInformant: All of the Riders' actual knowledge comes from his gloating.
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: As a normal upstanding civilian he couldn't get a girl. But as TheSociopath he can easily get girls to fall for him when now, he only wants to either hurt or kill them.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Unlike [[ForTheEvulz Phoenix]], his idea of fun amounts to 'whatever seems the most fun at the time.' Naturally, this means [[WildCard who he's impeding at any given moment]] may change at the drop of a hat depending on whether he's in the mood to antagonize the good guys or {{Troll}} his own allies.
** [[spoiler: ForTheEvulz: After TheReveal, it's shifted to this trope where he becomes a monster just to get his sick kicks.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He hides it very well, but by Episode #46 it has become very obvious that Sora/Gremlin's faux affability just enhances how much of a douchebag he is.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Does this to Haruto and Koyomi in Episode #46 [[ForTheEvulz just for shits and giggles]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:His killing of Fueki can be seen as this for some people, which would explain why his next action would be to kill his daughter too]].
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: In the episode #51, after receiving a Rider Kick empowered within the Philosopher's Stone from Haruto.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: A more subtle example than most. At first, he didn't particularly do anything evil, but once he gets promoted and starts being put in charge of sending out Phantoms, his plans are more competent than Medusa's, almost never revolving around the simple 'let fear of death drive you to despair' method. Then there's the reveal that [[spoiler:he's actually a SerialKiller, and has been since he was human.]] With this reveal, [[CerebusRetcon a lot of his comical traits suddenly become far more frightening]].
** After TheReveal his personality has become DarkerAndEdgier as well. He speaks in a lower voice, doesn't skip around as much, his movements are noticeably sharper, has begun to threaten the Lesser Phantoms under him if they don't do a good job, and the most jarring change of all: he has stopped giggling when he appears onscreen, making his appearances far more foreboding and menacing. His general attitude would also remind one of a more threatening straight up [[TheDragon Dragon]] role, rather than his original quirky DarkChick personality.
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler: After TheReveal, he temporarily drops his MaskOfSanity evolving from a GigglingVillain into this trope.]]
** By Episode 42 he has replaced his silly giggles with a downright insane laugh to herald his appearances.
* MadeOfIron: He ''survived'' an attack from the White Wizard when he was actually trying to kill Sora/Gremlin.
** [[spoiler: He later survived being ''impaled'' by Fueki's Hamel Cane.]]
* ManChild
** [[spoiler:PsychopathicManChild: A Type C.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: He's started out manipulating Haruto, Medusa, Phoenix, and Wiseman. And he went all out from there playing everyone like a fiddle.
* [[spoiler: MaskOfSanity: Just like real life sociopaths Gremlin/Sora is able to pretend to act like a normal, rational person.]]
* NervesOfSteel: No matter how badly he's beaten or how often his plans fall apart he never has a VillainousBreakdown and instead just changes gears.
* NiceHat
* NoNameGiven: At first, in his debut.
* NotSoDifferent: Tries to invoke this on Haruto. Haruto tells him to shut it.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: Was a human SerialKiller who, unlike most other Phantoms, ''became'' his Phantom.]]
** [[spoiler:Later gains another one, Evolved Gremlin, who becomes the Final Boss.]]
* PlayingBothSides: He started out playing ''three'' sides.
* PlotHole: It's never explained how Sora learned about the Philosopher's Stone -- Wiseman's biggest secret, or Wiseman's secret itself. Knowing both of these things are vital to his real agenda so it makes a few things make no sense.
* PragmaticVillainy: In the beginning he was like this, [[spoiler: but as he gets closer to the Philosopher's Stone, as a low-functioning sociopath, his poor impulse control overwhelms him and he begins to KickTheDog a lot more.]]
* [[spoiler: PinocchioSyndrome: He tells Medusa his dream is to become human.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Medusa's blue. (One of two)
** Oddly, he often serves as the blue to a Lower Phantom (Weretiger)'s red.
* [[spoiler:SerialKiller: Was one before becoming a Phantom. To be specific, a Hedonist one with Revenge as a motive, becoming a Supernatural one as well after becoming a Phantom.]]
* ShearMenace: His twin swords look like scissor blades. [[spoiler:For good reason, his favorite human murder weapon is a pair of scissors.]]
* SixthRanger: For the Phantoms, but he seems to be...
** SixthRangerTraitor: ...This. [[spoiler:And he is after stealing the Hamel Cane from Fueki.]]
* SmugSmiler: He always has a know-it-all grin on his face.
** PsychoticSmirk: As he reveals his true colors his smirk becomes less funny and more insane looking, with the transformation being complete in Episode 42.
* [[spoiler: StartOfDarkness: His flashback implies that he starts killing long-haired women after being dumped by the first victim.]]
* StealthHiBye: A master of this trope.
* [[spoiler: TheSociopath: Rather disturbingly like a real life sociopath akin to Ted Bundy, he is able to charm young woman into trusting him so he can kill them without interference and while around others can pretend to be a normal likeable guy. As the plot unfolds Sora has shown that he is an actual sociopath. He shows a grandiose sense of self worth about himself, has a superficial charm that makes certain people like and trust him instantly, has poor impulse control announcing his plans just to get a rise out of people even when it threatens his position, is easily bored and comes up with complicated scenarios to amuse himself or hurt people, is a natural manipulator, and has a complete LackOfEmpathy outside of being a ManipulativeBastard or {{Jerkass}}.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:He's the one who informs Nitoh about the Sabbath and drove him to become his own spanner]].
* ThatManIsDead: Subverted, he's notably the ''only'' Phantom to insist on being called by his Gate's name, even to Wiseman himself.
** [[spoiler: This is because he claims that he still has his humanity, even though his body is that of a Phantom. Too bad his human self is as bad as any Phantom.]]
* [[spoiler:TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: While he is a tad strange, everyone who knew him from before his transformation thought he was a normal, nice guy and never suspected he was a SerialKiller. This is actually a rather realistic depiction of a SerialKiller.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Gremlin thought it would be funny to attack and hold Koyomi hostage in front of a helpless Haruto. He ended up pissing off Fueki--the ''White Wizard''--which is probably one of the last things one should ever do.]]
** [[spoiler:The fact that the White Wizard is also his boss, Wiseman, only further solidifies this.]]
*** It makes him seem even dumber when you realize that [[spoiler:Gremlin knew Wiseman was the White Wizard.]]
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: [[spoiler:It's implied that he got to keep his soul because ''he was already a monster.'' Assuming he had a soul in the first place.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Has a fondness for bubblegum.
* [[spoiler:TrickBoss: Despite being a live-action television series, he comes across as this.]]
* {{Troll}}: Best shown when he tricks Haruto into a fight with Medusa...then laughs his head off at ''both'' of them. While he tells her it was to dispose of Haruto, the fact he didn't bother telling her that and the sheer glee he got out of it implies he just did it to annoy her.
* WeHaveReserves: He'll send as many Phantoms as he needs too their deaths at the Riders hands as long as it gets him closer to his unknown goal.
* WildCard: As mentioned above, at separate times he's helped and wished Haruto luck, favored a traitor's methods, and ratted on said traitor anyway. It's hard to tell just whose side, if anyone's, he's on.
** Invoked in his human form with the playing card motif his outfit has.
* [[spoiler:WomanScorned / {{Yandere}}]]: A rare male example: this was his actual personality when he was the normal human Sora Takigawa, [[spoiler: which leads to his StartOfDarkness when he flipped out, as detailed in previous examples]].
* WouldHitAGirl: He hits Koyomi a couple of times just because he can.
* XanatosSpeedChess: It's either this or the IndyPloy, a lot of his plans are never explained.
* YouMonster: [[spoiler:After being mortally wounded, he says that Haruto steals hope from people, and asks why Haruto calls himself a wizard. Haruto responds by saying Gremlin lost his soul long ago and that he doesn't consider him a person. Gremlin's response? "You got me there".]]

[[folder:Lesser Phantoms]]

!! Minotauros
->Live Actor: RIKIYA

The first Lesser Phantom that Wizard fights onscreen. While disguised as Rinko's partner Amino, Minotauros attempted to drive her to despair.

!!!Tropes
* AnAxeToGrind: Minotauros' main weapon is a large halberd.
* ALoadOfBull
* UseYourHead: Attempts to bull-rush Wizard during the fight. It doesn't quite work as well as he hoped.

!!Hellhound
->Live Actor: Takeshi Kongochi

The second Lesser Phantom Wizard fights. Hellhound attempted to drag Shunpei into despair by tricking him into thinking he possessed magical powers. Possesses the ability to breathe fire and hide in and travel through shadows. Born from a TV presenter named Kazuo Tajima.

!!!Tropes
* CastingAShadow: Can hide in, and travel through shadows.
* PlayingWithFire: Can breathe both streams of flame and explosive bolts.
* NotQuiteDead: Seems to go down in one episode like the previous phantom, but [[HesJustHiding he got away to safety]].
* SmarmyHost
* TeleportSpam: Uses this during his fight with Wizard, but along as long as he has access to any form of shadow.

!!Caitsith
->Live Actor: Bernard Ackah

The third Lesser Phantom Wizard encounters. Caitsith is a lazy Phantom that is tasked with driving a pianist to despair. However, he'd much rather sleep than do his job. Possesses formidable speed and agility.

!!!Tropes
* AffablyEvil: Almost to PunchClockVillain level. Seems cheerful and carefree... for a demon charged with bringing despair.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Can turn his forearms into swords.
* CatsAreMean: Caitsith's idea of driving his victim to despair? Cut off his hands!
* GetBackHereBoss
* ScaryBlackMan: Subverted. He is black, but his personality is miles away from being scary.
* SuperSpeed

!!Gnome
->Live Actor: Yoshiyuki Kanayasu

The fourth Lesser Phantom Wizard deals with. Gnome works as a sommelier, a skill enhanced by his unnaturally keen sense of smell. Gnome is sent after a female con artist who managed to scam three of Wizard's friends in addition to a rich young man. Has the ability to tunnel rapidly through dirt.

!!!Tropes
* DishingOutDirt: Can cause cave-ins, tunnel rapidly and pull targets into the ground with ease.
* GentlemanSnarker: Has a very snobbish demeanor when interacting with other people, even ''Phoenix and Medusa''.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Type 2. Serves as his primary melee weapon.
* TheyHaveTheScent: Is able to track his target by scent.
** HoistByHisOwnPetard: And it was his sensitive nose that partly did him in thanks to the Smell Ring.
* WickedCultured
* WineIsClassy: Is first seen smelling and sampling some fine wines when Medusa and Phoenix come calling.

!!Gargoyle
->Live Actor: Kenji Yamachi

The fifth Lesser Phantom Wizard faces, Gargoyle disguises himself as a blue-collar maintenance worker. Gargoyle originally attempted to drag down a high school student (and son of Agent Kizaki's late partner) into despair, but failed when the boy left town. Now that he's returned, Gargoyle seeks to finish the job. Has the power to turn himself into an immobile and nearly indestructible statue.

!!!Tropes
* OurGargoylesRock
* StoneWall: Turtling varient; his self-petrification lets him block most of Wizard's attacks.
* TakenForGranite: Self-Inflicted and reversable.

!!Valkyrie
->Live Actor: Isao Sugibayashi

The sixth lesser Phantom Wizard fights. He was born from Kiritani, a manager of a Japanese sweets department when he succumbed to despair. This phantom was tasked by Medusa specifically to ruin a boss' sweets shop to being him despair.

!!!Tropes
* BladeOnAStick: Valkyrie's main weapon.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Acts quite polite, but he's introduced when he explains to Phoenix and Medusa that he was late because he was busy "adjusting the jaw" of his human boss.
* {{Flight}}
* GenderFlipped: Normally, Valkyries are female, but this phantom came from a man. Who doesn't even [[DudeLooksLikeALady look like a girl]]!
* ProfessionalButtkisser: Part of his FauxAffablyEvil facade. While he is trying to kiss up to [[CoDragons Phoenix and Medusa]], it;s all an act around anyone else.
* SpamAttack: Can fire a barrage of green energy blasts from a distance.

!!Lizardman
->Live Actor: Keisuke Ueda

The first Phantom Haruto encountered after the sacrifice, the Phantom is easily driven off by the White Wizard when it tried to kill Haruto. He was born from a student filmmaker. Haruto later runs into him and initially mistakes him for a Gate (as he was running from Medusa at the time), only to have to continue the act in order to keep up the spirits of an actual Gate, a girl that had been inspired to become an actress by being in one of his films.

!!!Tropes
* AxCrazy: Like Phoenix, he likes to kill people to the point where Medusa worries Gates will be killed in the process.
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen in #2's flashback, attacking Haruto in the aftermath of the ritual.
* {{Cyclops}}: Assuming the orange dot on his head is his eye.
* DirtyCoward: When it came to fighting anyone he thought was stronger than him, he would resort to hiding, running, or trickery. He's been on the run from Medusa for quite some time because of this, and the only reason he ever fought Wizard head-on was because Haruto saw him transform.
* {{Expy}}: Looks somewhat like an organic [[MobileSuitGundam M'Quve's YMS-15 Gyan]], down to his using a sword.

!!Manticore

The eighth Phantom Wizard fought until he was poisoned by his stinger. He is finally defeated by Kamen Rider Beast.

!!!Tropes
* BigCreepyCrawlies: He looks all bug rather than part insect, part lion.
* BaldOfEvil: In human form.
* BewareMyStingerTail
* DeathDealer: Can use his cards as weapons, ala [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Gambit]].
* EvilCounterpart: In a way, with Kamen Rider Beast, as both have a lion as part of their motifs (at least the manticore aspect for the phantom's case) and both have a pair of big green eyes.
* PoisonousPerson: His ability to lethally poison people is the driving force of his episode.
* SmugSnake: Thinking his poison makes him unstoppable, he becomes insufferable after getting in a lucky shot against Wizard, [[BullyingADragon with him talking smack to Phoenix,]] and telling off Medusa when she tells him to just kill Wizard when he's weak instead of gloating.
** JerkassHasAPoint: The ''only'' flaw in Manticore's plan was Beast, which nobody, not even Wiseman, seemed to know about. On top of that, it made sense from a villainous standpoint to want to see the enemy who had been kicking your collective asses suffer, and if Haruto's poisoning had been slow enough, he could have been forced to helplessly watch other Gates turn into Phantoms, which could easily have pushed him over the Despair Event Horizon and unleashed Dragon (giving the Phantoms a very powerful ally), which would be impossible if they'd just killed him.

!!Hydra

The ninth Phantom Wizard faces, who targets an artist who has lost his inspiration. He was born from a scuba diver.

!!!Tropes

* BladeOnAStick
* CombatTentacles
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: He attacks Haruto, knowing that he would have the Gate run for it...right into his army of Ghouls who enable the source of the Gate's hope to be destroyed. It worked perfectly up until Beast showed up.
* MasterOfNone: He's easily the weakest Phantom Haruto ever fought. Even in the water where he's a LightningBruiser he was still pathetic. All he really had going for him was being smart enough to come up with a decent plan.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills

!! Beelzebub

The tenth Phantom Wizard fought to protect a targeted housewife.

!!!Tropes

* {{Badass}}: He's a ''Lesser Phantom'' that can fight on par with Haruto while he's in a Dragon Style, and that's ''before'' he busts out his SpaceMaster powers!
** BadassInANiceSuit: In human form.
* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Gets this twice, both times due to being hit with the White Wizard's Explosion Ring.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: He can make normally kind people into abusive dicks.
* CombatPragmatist: He uses his SpaceMaster powers to redirect Wizard's attacks to hit Beast.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: While he likes to drag his victims' suffering out ForTheEvulz, the second he faces a threat to his plans, he solves it by stabbing it with the least amount of fuss possible.
* {{Familiar}}: How he makes people BrainwashedAndCrazy.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Treats his victims' suffering as though he's conducting an orchestra, and is always softspoken and calm despite being one of the most sadistic Phantoms seen thus far.
* GratuitousGerman
* IAmNotLeftHanded: He didn't reveal his SpaceMaster powers until Beast showed up to help Wizard and Wizard went Flame Dragon.
* KnightOfCerebus: He's extremely competent for a MonsterOfTheWeek, and his EvilPlan is disturbingly cruel. He first brainwashes all of his victim's friends into abandoning her, then he brainwashes Shunpei into physically assaulting her. Then to put the icing on the cake he makes her ''husband'' physically assault her. Oh, and he can also kick Haruto's ass. This guy is a certifiable nightmare.
* ManipulativeBastard
* SlasherSmile
* SoftSpokenSadist: Acts perfectly serene as he ruins a woman's life. He even outright states he likes drawing out the suffering he causes just ForTheEvulz.
* SpaceMaster: Can make portals that redirect attacks.
* ThinkingUpPortals

!! Weretiger

Born from a bodybuilder when he fell into despair, he is tasked by Medusa to turn Nitoh's grandmother into a phantom. He is finally defeated and his mana consumed by Beast.

!!! Tropes

* BerserkButton: He ''really'' doesn't like to be referred to by his Gate's name, as seen when Sora's FirstNameBasis habit kicks in.
* ChestBlaster: With explosives coming out from its eye-like [[TorpedoTits nipples]].
* PantheraAwesome: Having the tiger aspect of the weretiger.
* SuperStrength
* ThreateningShark: Resembles a tiger shark, for whatever reason.

!! Spriggan

Born from a security guard, he was ordered to turn a archeology professor into a Phantom.

!!! Tropes

* {{Catchphrase}}: A threatening "You really ought to be more careful."
* DirtyCop
* {{Expy}}: A split-colored being with a sword and shield. Better yet, the shield holsters the sword. Sounds quite similar to [[Series/KamenRiderDouble another Rider]], right?
* FatBastard: In human form.
* TheFairFolk
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: [[AllThereInTheManual Named "Riddle".]]
* ShoulderCannon: Or the magical equivalent, at least.

!! Legion

Born from a man named "Naitou", he is apparently so powerful and disobedient that Wiseman keeps him chained up.

!!! Tropes
* AxCrazy: Like Phoenix and Lizardman, he had no interests in turning Gates into Phantoms and would rather wreck people's minds [[ForTheEvulz for fun]], putting them into a coma in the process. Unlike those two, Wiseman took no chances and sealed him away.
* BladeOnAStick: Fights with a double-edged halberd.
* {{Badass}}: Beast, Chimera, and Dragon all teamed up to take him down...and ''lost''.
* CatchPhrase: "''[[GratuitousEnglish Exciting]]''."
* {{Cyclops}}: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] for this case. It is unclear whether he has one large eye or many eyes patterned around his face.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: The make-up department went all out to make this guy as creepy looking as possible.
* EnergyBall: His long range attack, and its very powerful.
* [[spoiler:HeroKiller: Downplayed--he killed Wizardragon and rendered Haruto powerless.]]
* [[spoiler: JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Has the ability to enter people's underworlds.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: You thought [[SoftSpokenSadist Beelzebub]] was bad? Legion is even worse than him!
* LeanAndMean: He's disturbingly thin in human form.
* ManInWhite: In human form.
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Enjoys entering people's minds and tearing them apart from the inside out. We only see the full process ''once'' with Haruto, and it's horrifying.]]
* PsychoForHire
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: [[spoiler:Is on the receiving end against Wizard's [[SuperMode Infinity Style]], who just stands there taking his slashes [[NoSell without even flinching]]. The 'Uh Oh' part comes when Legion's Halberd ''breaks'' on Wizard's armor.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes glow red when he gets serious.
* SpaceMaster: His halberd can cut through normal space just as well as well as Underworld space.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: His targets of choice seem to not be Gates, but good people in general. Three examples are a guitarist with an expressive song, a woman who helped an elderly and [[spoiler:Haruto showing his HeroicResolve.]] By being put into a coma, the victims ended up being this.
* SealedEvilInACan: Wiseman locked him up due to how powerful and AxCrazy he is.
* SuperpowerLottery: [[spoiler: He can just walk into peoples Underworlds and destroy them. If he followed Wiseman's agenda there would be ''a lot'' more Phantoms running around.]]

!! Bogy

This phantom was tasked to employ a group of people with a million dollar a day pay. This way, Medusa could identify who among the workers is the Gate(s). After that, he would bring them all to an abandoned building to scare them into despair, though he was stopped by the heroes in the nick of time. [[spoiler: Or not.]]

!!! Tropes

* [[spoiler:AsteroidsMonster: After Wizard in Infinity Style destroys his main body, Bogy was reduced to 6 pieces that eventually matured into 6 Bogy clones, though they seemed weaker than the first Bogy.]]
* BladeOnAStick: Yet another Phantom that uses a spear.
* [[spoiler: CameBackStrong: An odd version, after dying, his ghosts gain luck-based powers.]]
* IntangibleMan
* [[spoiler:[[LuckBasedMission Luck-Based]] PuzzleBoss: Turns out, he has the ability to change one's luck, and he used it to his advantage every time Wizard fought him. But since this is a toku show, his luck finally runs out.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent
* [[PlantAliens Plant Ghost Demon]]
* ObviouslyEvil: It was a miracle anyone trusted him in human form. He dressed in a black overcoat, was hunched over like Igor, looked shifty, and spoke in a deep, forboding voice.
* [[spoiler:OnlyMostlyDead: As noted by Gremlin himself, after being defeated by Kamen Rider Wizard the first time.]]
* StoneWall: Almost comically slow, but his ability to become intangible makes him a tough combatant.
* [[spoiler:SuicidalOverconfidence: The last Bogy thought he was would avoid Beast Hyper's [[FinishingMove Mirage Shooting]] just by standing in place. He didn't count on the fact that said move shoots Chimera himself as the attack.]]
* [[spoiler:WindsOfDestinyChange]]

!! Argus

Born from a photographer, he was instructed by Medusa to target a model. He was stopped by Sora, though, [[spoiler:but that's because he wanted to be the one doing that job instead.]]

!!! Tropes

* ExtraEyes: Which he can detach to attack from a distance.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere
* EyeBeams: UpToEleven, given all of his extra eyes.
* LightEmUp

!! Raum

It disguises itself as [[spoiler:a Myna Bird owned by a Gate it spies on.]] It seemed to be helping the Gate instead, [[spoiler: but in reality, it was tasked to frame him for arson]].

!!!Tropes

* AmbiguousDisorder: Being described as an oddball as well as not appearing to be paying attention to Sora speaking to him, even in human form!
* {{Animorphism}}: It may look like to be born from a bird at first, but that's the Phantom being able to shape shift into an animal.
* BladeOnAStick: Phantoms really like spears, don't they?
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: The real Raum is a Great Earl of Hell.
* EyeBeams: He can fire purple energy blasts out of his eyes
* FeatheredFiend
* [[spoiler: {{Irony}}: Sora threatened him, possibly with death should he screwed up. But getting busted and exposing his true nature to the Gate precisely brought him to despair!]]
* JackOfAllStats: Very fast, can fly, has a ranged attack, and is competent in close combat.
* ManipulativeBastard: A very, very good one. Given that he only needed to use one word to manipulate his Gate.

!! Bahamut

!!!Tropes

* AlmightyJanitor: He's a Lesser Phantom, but his power level is somewhere around Phoenix's level after his fourth revival.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: And he can back it up.
* {{Badass}}: Previously Dragon Time was the same words as 'death sentence' to a Phantom (not named Medusa). Not this guy. [[spoiler:While Infinity Style finally defeats him rather easily, but he deserves credit for being the first Phantom to take ''multiple'' slashes of Wizard's Shining Strike to take out and fending off a few of them.]]
** BadassBandolier: In human form.
* BareFistedMonk
* BloodKnight
* BladeBelowTheShoulder
* BulletCatch: A key part of his EstablishingCharacterMoment to show that he wasn't just a normal MonsterOfTheWeek.
* ChallengeSeeker: In his first appearance he beat Haruto and was about to do the normal 'let the fear of death drive you into despair' plot, but stopped halfway through because he thought it was too boring and decided that a more personal DespairEventHorizon would be funner.
* FatBastard: In human form
* TheJuggernaut: Whichever form, mantle or gimmick the riders tried, neither of them work. [[spoiler: That's until Kamen Rider Wizard changed to Infinity Style, but even that required ''multiple'' hits from his [[FinishingMove Shining Strike]] to destroy Bahamut.]]
* LeanAndMean: In Phantom form
* LightningBruiser
* SociopathicSoldier: Given his composed personality, human clothing, and general attitude, he comes off as a Type II.
* SwordBeam

!! Sylphi

Sora tasked this phantom to bring a boy to despair. [[spoiler:He successfully fulfilled the task by sabotaging he boy's bike trick to his neighbor, only for the boy to awaken as a wizard instead.]]

!!!Tropes

* AnAxeToGrind
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler:He has effectively brought his target to despair in a short while!]]
** [[spoiler: NiceJobFixingItVillain Only for his target to awaken as a wizard.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Like the Phantom who sent him, his quirky personality only serves to enhance how morally bankrupt he is.
* BlowYouAway
** RazorWind
* {{Camp}}: Tempting as it is to put him as CampGay, it is not known whether phantoms have any sexuality at all (other than Siren exploiting her charm ability on males).
* ConfusionFu
* {{Expy}}: Similar in both appearance and behavior to the [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Spider Fangire]]. Coincidentally, [[spoiler:the phantom he would have helped birth had a spider motif to it]].
* TheFairFolk: He's actually rather similar to how real fairies acted in mythology. With his faux affability and penchant for screwing people over.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* {{Flight}}
* FourEyesZeroSoul: In human form.
* [[spoiler:HearingVoices: Unique case where he can listen to air vibrations to listen to people far away.]]
* GenderFlipped: Like Valkyrie, the Sylphs are usually female.
* GratuitousEnglish: Lots of it, but "Hey, hey, hey!" seems to be his catchphrase.
* LightningBruiser
* ManipulativeBastard: Continuing the tradition of Sora's Phantoms specializing in emotional manipulation. He uses a poor kids PuppyLove to send him past the DespairEventHorizon.
* SissyVillain: Unlike Valkyrie's GenderFlipped example, Sylphi's human for has long hair, fingernails painted blue, walk in an effeminate manner and talks as if he's flirting with his target.
* SuperSenses: Hearing for this case, though [[spoiler:that was through his ability to pick up air vibrations.]]
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: He noticeably creates a situation where he gets to do both at once.

!! Sphinx

Medusa tasked this phantom to bring despair to an esteemed author who was looking for a young woman [[spoiler:(who is revealed to be Koyomi)]]. As a young girl, she gave him both the inspiration to continue writing after a severe case of writer's block, and the hope to move forward with his life after he had become suicidal. He is now looking for her to return a ring that she dropped during their initial encounter, and to express his gratitude towards her.

!!! Tropes

* CaneFu: Though he can walk fine, he always carries one, even in human form.
* CoolSword: Switches weapons during his fight with Beast.
* GentlemanWizard: ONLY looks like one - [[AvertedTrope he's definitely not gentlemanly!]]
* HighClassGlass: Somewhat; His specs has one missing glass piece.
* JackOfAllStats
* PlayingWithFire: His main form of attack.
* ManipulativeBastard: Like some of the Phantoms in the show, Sphinx knows the best way to send a Gate past the DespairEventHorizon is to destroy the source of their hope.
* MagicStaff: His WeaponOfChoice and is good for close range and long range combat.
* MummyWrap: He can wrap himself with bandages and escape via teleporting.
* NiceHat: Wears a nice top hat in human form.
* SharpDressedMan
* WouldHitAGirl: He smacks Koyomi in the face.
* ZergRush: His solution to dealing with Wizard? Don't fight him at all. He instead uses a large amount of [[{{mook}} Ghouls]] to stall him instead.

!! Siren

This phantom was tasked to bring a retiring teacher, who is in fact Haruto's old elementary school teacher, into despair. The teacher stumbled into Haruto once again on his hunt for a rare model of a toy plane that was stolen from the shrine of his deceased son.

!!! Tropes

* ArmorPiercingSlap: Gave one to Haruto after he struggled to successfully foil her plan.
* BladeOnAStick
* BlowYouAway
* CharmPerson: She got Wajima to partly help her in her plans. He forgot the whole thing afterwards. Subverted with the child, though-she easily convinced him to get a toy plane without her charm ability.
* FeatheredFiend: Has a bird motif.
* GenderFlipped: Averted, unlike Valkyrie and Sylphi. She is a female phantom based on a female-based mythological creature.
* LimitedWardrobe: Averted. Unlike every other Phantom who only seems to have one set of clothes, she's gone through five different outfits during her two episode run, which is more than the main cast has.
* ManipulativeBitch: Notably on the next half of the arc, where you got a boy to hand her the toy plane without her charm ability.
* MoreThanMindControl: Said boy really wanted to break that plane so that his father would care less about his toy collection.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The very Combo-breaker of this trope; we have seen over 20 male phantoms after Medusa! Too bad it becomes a double-subversion after her destruction.
* TheVamp: Even more so than Medusa, where she made use of her charm ability.
* StageWhisper: Partly to show how she seductively got Wajima to help her despite him being an ally.

!! Arachne

After finding the next Gate, a soon-to-be father, Medusa tasked this phantom to go after him. Holds the distinction of being the last of the Lesser Phantoms to appear in-series.

!!! Tropes
* AnAxeToGrind
* BatOutOfHell: He looks like he's part bat! Did the writers even bother to look up the myths?
* BigCreepyCrawlies
* DumbMuscle: Compared to the last batch of Phantoms who were excellent {{Manipulative Bastard}}s, Arachne is a incompetent brute who's only a threat because Medusa is actively backing him.
* GenderFlipped: In a similar case to Valkyrie.
* LightningBruiser
* OhCrap: His reaction to being surrounded by Wizard Infinity Style and Beast Hyper.
* VillainExitStageLeft: His only power.
* WouldHitAGirl[=/=]WouldHurtAChild: Gets to do both at once when he attempts to kill a pregnant woman.

[[folder:Unreleased
[[Characters/KamenRiderWizardPhantoms Phantoms]]
Phantoms who are manifested from a Gate's despair. They are called "unreleased", due to Wizard destroying them before they are able to break free from the Gates.

!!Jabberwock

The very first Phantom Wizard fought on-screen in a Gate's Underworld. For this case, the Gate was Rinko Daimon, who fell into despair when Minotaur destroyed her pendant which was her memento of her father.

!!!Tropes
* BigCreepyCrawlies

!!Cyclops

The next Unreleased Phantom Wizard fought after it manifested from Shunpei's magic potential, after Hellhound humiliated him publicly and burnt his inspirational book.

!!!Tropes
[[Characters/KamenRiderWizardMovieExclusiveCharacters Movie-Exclusive Characters]]
* CarryABigStick
* {{Cyclops}}: Though he isn't the only phantom with one eye

!!Jörmungandr

The third Unreleased Phantom Wizard battled. It was manifested from the mana of a youth, Naoki Katayama, after Gargoyle revealed how the young man's father died by his hands attempting to protect his son.

!!!Tropes
* BodyMotifs: For this case, it's modeled after a right hand.
* EvilHand

!!Hekatonkheir

The fourth Unreleased Phantom Wizard battled, when Phoenix burned all the Christmas presents a yanki man (Tatsuro) worked hard to get for the children in an orphanage.

!!!Tropes
* DoNotGoGentle: When Wizard goes to do his Kick Strike with the [=WizarDragon=], he actually delivers a kick of his own to try and stop Wizard.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous

!!Bandersnatch

The fifth Unreleased Phantom to appear after Hydra smashed an artist's precious painting. While Wizard was busy fighting Hydra and the Ghouls, Beast managed to engage this unreleased Phantom and defeat it.

!!!Tropes
* EasilyDetachableRobotParts: Not a robot, but for this case, after the phantom was sliced, [[AsteroidsMonster the chopped up bodies]] [[GoddamnBats moved on its own.]]

!![[spoiler: Mayu's Inner Phantom]]

[[spoiler: Manifested in Mayu Inamori, twin sister to Medusa's Gate Misa, after Medusa revealed her true nature to her. Neither Wizard nor Beast could reach her in time, being occupied with fighting Medusa and Gremlin. However, just as it was about to break free, Mayu managed to overcome her despair and force the Phantom back into her body with new-found hope. Now, Mayu is training directly under The White Wizard.]]

!!!Tropes
* NoNameGiven: For now.
* [[spoiler: PlayingWithFire: Implied when Mayu, as Kamen Rider Mage, used the Special Ring.]]
* [[spoiler: SiliconBasedLife: Implied to be so when it began emerging from Mayu's body.]]
* [[spoiler: SpikesOfVillainy: From what little we see of it. Said spikes looked crystalline in nature.]]
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Subverted at the last minute.]]

!!Nemoto Kazuyoshi's Inner Phantom

It manifested within this character after his name was cleared, but this is because he saw his pet to really be the real arsonist, Phantom Raum.

!!!Tropes
* AllThereInTheManual: Averted. The site that normally shows all phantoms including unreleased ones did not give any background information on this phantom.
* BlackComedy: Nemoto showing signs of a phantom being about to burst out of him is played as a punchline to show Rinko and Shunpei wasting their effort in preventing despair on one case when another did the job instead.
* FatBastard: If the phantom were to succeed in bursting out of Nemoto, killing him and impersonate him, its human form will most likely become this.
* GreatOffscreenWar: Downplayed as it's a battle between it and either Kamen Rider Wizard, Kamen Rider Beast or both with their own respective phantoms.
* NoNameGiven

!!Yuzuru Iijima's Inner Phantom

It first manifested when Syphi sabotaged Yuzuru's bike trick and blown his bicycle to his neighbor, Akari. While he managed to prevent Kamen Rider Beast from entering Yuzuru's underworld, he regained hope after seeing Akari recovering from the hit. Sylphi's next plan was to kidnap Akari and made the group see her getting crushed by metal beams, only for it to backfire horribly for this pantom. Afterwards, deciding not to become a magician, Yuzuru was offered by Kamen Rider Beast to destroy the inner phantom, [[spoiler:only to be stopped and abducted by The White Wizard.]]

* [[spoiler:BigCreepyCrawlies: Implied with the emerged spider limbs.]]
* NoNameGiven: Like Mayu's.
* [[spoiler:SpiderLimbs: From what we saw, it's possibly some type of Spider Phantom]]
* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Subverted the first time in a similar manner to Mayu's. During the second time, Sylphi tried to bring this gate to despair again, only to had his plan thwarted by Kamen Rider Mage.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Since Yuzuru doesn't want to be a magician, Kamen Rider Beast offered him to have his inner phantom removed.

!! Gigantes

It manifested inside Masafumi Saionji after Sphinx successfully melted his precious ring. Kamen Rider Wizard handled this phantom while Kamen Rider Beast took care of Sphinx.

!!!Tropes

* {{Cyclops}}: Subverted. In addition of one singular eye, there is one red dot on the palm on each of its hands. These dots are revealed to be eyes as well.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Specifically, its extra eyes are on its hands.
* GiantHandsOfDoom: It has a pair of them.
* InescapableNet: Its centre body and turn into one, but as a subversion, Wizardragon managed to escape on time.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Only for its hands.

!! Masahiro Yamamoto's Inner Phantom

It manifested within Arachne's target after Medusa helped blasting his pregnant wife to bits. Unfortunately for this inner phantom, it could not even emerge out of his body out thanks to Wizard protecting the wife from the explosion.

!!! Tropes
* NoNameGiven
* TailSlap: Implied when Masahiro Yamamoto is a Kamen Rider Mage. Through the Special Ring, he can extend the tail as a whip.

* [[spoiler:EvilCounterpart: Examining him closely you'll realize he's a pretty solid one to Haruto. They both lost their loved ones (and bonus points for the inverse relationship, with Haruto being the child who lost his parents and [[spoiler:Fueki]] being the parent who lost his child) and while Haruto was able to move on from his loss and become a selfless NiceGuy, Fueki became a selfish, callous human being. They also got their powers in opposite ways, as Haruto gained his magic from the power of hope while Fueki got the idea to give himself magic powers after passing the DespairEventHorizon. Both were motivated by Koyomi but in the end, Haruto knew when to stop chasing ghosts while Fueki didn't.]]
