Characters: Kamen Rider Faiz

Takumi Inui/Kamen Rider Faiz/Wolf Orphnoch

The primary user of the Faiz Gear.

  • The Aloner: At first.
  • Blood Knight: Mild example, he grew to enjoy being Faiz.
  • Boomerang Bigot: He had a time of wanting to kill all Orphnochs despite being one himself. This can be justified, every Orphnoch he met was either killing everyone around him, or was in their human form the entire time.
  • Brought To You By The Letter Phi
  • Cool Bike: Auto-Vaijin, which not only looks cool and goes fast, but also houses all of his gear and can even transform into a Mini-Mecha in a pinch.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He even says it in his nature to be sarcastic.
  • Deal with the Devil: He joins Lucky Clover to get Smart Brain to save Mari.
  • Death Seeker: When he was tricked into thinking he attacked the Ryusei School reunion, he actively tries to get Kiba to kill him.
  • Defrosting Ice King: At the beginning of the series, he was as rude as possible and tried to distance himself from Mari and Keitaro, only living at Keitaro's house as he was forced too. As the series goes on, he's noticeably less aggressive and more involved with his friends.
  • Everything's Even Worse With Sharks: Aside from the Phi and Wolf motifs, Faiz has this as a secondary motif. This is revealed in the Kamen Rider Decade Net Movies.
  • Face-Heel Turn: He had done this twice after he revealed his Orphnoch form in the series and again in a brief moment during the Kamen Rider Taisen incident.
    • Heel-Face Turn: After he resolves to become the main wearer of the Faiz Gear once again.
  • Fake Memories: In the movie.
  • Finishing Move
    • Crimson Smash: A Rider Kick that manifests as a red drill piercing the Orphnoch.
      • Axel Crimson Smash: A variant augmented by the Super Speed of Axel form.
      • Blaster Crimson Smash: Another variant with increased power from Blaster form.
    • Grand Impact: A Rider Punch with the Faiz Shot.
      • Axel Grand Impact: A variant augmented with Super Speed.
    • Sparkle Cut: A slash with the Faiz Edge.
    • Faiz Blaster Sword Mode: "Photon Breaker"
    • Faiz Blaster Gun Mode: "Photon Buster"
  • The Hero
  • Heroic BSOD: Twice, once when he is rescued by Yuka. After he finds out that she is an Orphnoch, and questions if other Orphnoch aren't complete monsters, making him unable to fight. He gets over it, as he realizes that he should only attack those attacking humans. The second time is when he couldn't protect Mari from Sawada, causing her death. This is only further when he is forced to transform in front of his friends and have them be scared of him for a few episodes. It got worse again, when he was tricked into thinking he attacked the Ryusei School reunion, causing him to be a Death Seeker.
  • Hour of Power: Axel Form only lasts for ten seconds before Faiz reverts to normal.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Takumi is actually the wolf Orphenoch.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
    • Jerkass Fašade: It is later revealed he acts the way he does as he is scared of himself. And attempts to isolate people, so he can't hurt them.
  • The Kirk
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Not only is he the main Rider with Red as a notable secondary color, his Super Mode Blaster Form drives it home by flooding his suit with red Photon Blood.
  • Meaningful Name: "Inui" contains the character for "dog" (Takumi is the Wolf Orphenoch.)
  • Memetic Hand Gesture: His signature wrist flick, which displays both his refined, hi-tech aesthetic and identifies him. Whether he's wearing the Faiz or Delta Gears, you'll know it's him by that little flick.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: Axel Form
  • Multiform Balance
  • Protagonist Power-Up Privileges: The reason he got Axel form was Kusaka gave him the device, for some reason. He only activated Blaster Form as he was mailed the Faiz Blaster.
  • The Slacker: He notes he has no dream and just wants to travel around.
  • Super Speed: Axel Form
  • Transforming Mecha: Autovajin
  • Tsundere: A good case can be made for him. He is pretty snarky to everyone, but he grows nicer to his friends as the series goes on.
  • Weapon of Choice
  • Wolf Man: Well, a humanoid wolf as the Wolf Orphnoch.

Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa

The primary user of the Kaixa Gear.

Shuji Mihara/Kamen Rider Delta

The primary user of the Delta Gear.

Yuji Kiba/Horse Orphnoch/Kamen Rider Orga

Mari Sonoda

  • Back from the Dead: Twice!
  • Determinator: She has her moments. Like trying to transform to Faiz despite knowing it won't work.
  • Dude Magnet: She has three people after her. Kusaka and Sawada have loved her since childhood. While Kaido gets a crush on her as well. Based on extent that Takumi is willing to go for her, he probably likes her as well.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: It actually costed her life once.
  • Oblivious to Love: She never knew Kusaka and Sawada liked her since childhood, despite everyone else seemed to know.
  • Rebel Leader: In the movie.
  • Tsundere: Type B, towards Takumi.
