     Kamen Riders 

Shouichi Tsugami/Kamen Rider Agito

Makoto Hikawa/Kamen Rider G3/G3-X

  • Cool Sword: GS-03 Destroyer. It's a high-frequency vibration blade and works more like a chainsaw in term of usage.
    • It's also completely ineffective - G3 never lands a successful hit with it.
  • Determinator: The G3 system can be worn by others, but it keeps coming back to Hikawa because, even when the chips are down or he's up against forces that greatly outnumber or overpower his own, he won't back down.
  • Deuteragonist
  • Gatling Good, More Dakka: GX-05 Cerberus. The most powerful weapon in G3-X's arsenal. Also has a Grenade Launcher mode that involves attaching the GM-01 Scorpion to it.
  • The Gunslinger: Japanese police officers don't have carte blanche to use, let alone carry, sidearms - the fact that Hikawa has a revolver on him at all times (and not no candy-ass snub-nose, either) says something.
  • Handguns: GM-01 Scorpion. Pretty weak, but easy to use, has good rate of fire and can be augmented with the GG-02 "Salamander" Grenade Launcher attachment.
  • Henshin Hero: An aversion — the G3/G3-X suit is manually worn. The process is more complicated that the Try Jackets from Tokusou Exceedraft, but less so than, say, Iron Man (film).
  • Knife Nut: GK-06 Unicorn. An electromagnetic knife stored on G3-X's left arm that is approximately half as powerful as the GS-03 Destroyer - and he lands some hits with it too!
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: G3-X. It was becoming clear that a suit designed to fight Unidentified Life Forms wasn't terribly effective against Unknowns.
  • Powered Armor: Muscle enhancement suit with armor on top.
  • Stone Wall: Partly because the wearer's a regular human, it's clearly shown taking hits that would seriously injure or stun the other Riders. (At one point, it shrugs off direct lightning strikes.)
  • Super Prototype: In the A New Transformation TV Special, we see G3 Mild, a weaker model of G3 armor intended for mass production. After the end of the series, the G5 line goes into limited production.
  • Weak, but Skilled: The impression G3 leaves, as it wasn't designed to fight the stronger Unknowns (it's based on Unidentified Life Form #04, which shows in the helmet design).
  • Weapon of Choice: Unlike the other main riders, G3/G3-X is powered armor and so he has a wider variety of weapons. It primarily covers ranged attacks.

Ryō Ashihara/Kamen Rider Gills

Kaoru Kino/Another Agito

Shiro Mizuki/Kamen Rider G4

     Supporting Cast 

Mana Kazaya

  • Healing Hands: She can do this until she burns out the power resurrecting Ryou from the dead.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother died when she was young and her father was accidentally killed by Shouichi's psychic sister.
  • Psychic Powers: Has Extra Sensory Perception, like tracing the memory of an item, or reading a card without looking at it.

     The Lords 

Overlord of Darkness

  • Anti-Villain: His motivation is simply fear that humanity may one day overpower him. When he realizes that he didn't understand mankind, he decides he needs to give them a chance to proceed and grow.
  • Big Bad
  • Dark Is Not Evil: The Overlord of Darkness isn't exactly evil, just afraid humanity will overpower him and trying to wipe out those who could do so. And in the end decides to let mankind move on.
  • God Is Evil: the Overlord of Darkness is actually the creator of humanity, who sees them as his pets
    • God Is Flawed: However, he still isn't exactly malicious, but had little understanding of his own creation.
  • Heel Realization: Realizes in the end his assault on humanity was wrong and he simply doesn't understand his own creations. He chooses to sit back and watch how things go.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: His way of dealing what he perceives as a threat.

The Lords

  • All There in the Manual: The individual names of the Lords are never given onscreen and can be found in supplemental materials. In fact, they're never even referred to as Lords, but rather as The Unknown.
  • Animal Motifs: A stantdard practice for Kamen Rider monsters.
  • Canis Latinicus: The naming pattern for the Lords, save for the El. Each name consists of two Latin words: genus + descriptor. Example: Pantheras Luteus = Leopard/Panther Saffron Yellow. Though, as to be expected, some translations can get blurred.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They're specifically to target humans blessed with the seed of Agito (those whom have supernatural abilities). Killing normal humans (unless said human had committed murder) is a taboo and the penalty is forced suicide. The Ant Lords somehow bypass this rule.
  • Monogender Monsters: Averted with the inclusion of female Lords.
  • Monster of the Week: Some for a week; others fortnight.
  • Our Angels Are Different: To drive the point home, each Lord has wing-like appendeges sticking out of their backs.
  • Palette Swap: Some Lords are grouped by animal genera; therefore, the costumes are similar. Female Lord costumes avert this.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Bringing out religious references further, a halo appears above them when they summon a weapon or are about to die. They also make prayer hand gestures before killing a victim.
