[[quoteright:200:[[labelnote:WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS]]\\
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wolf_orphnoch.png[[/labelnote]]]]
A snarky, brutish delinquent whom Mari came across by chance while chased by Orphnochs. He becomes the primary user of the Faiz Gear, and the one best-suited to using its multiple functions. [[spoiler: Later revealed to be the Wolf Orphnoch.]]
----
* FiveFiveFive: Obviously. It's a pun on "Phi", "Fives" and "Faiz." Hilariously enough, 555 is a possible emergency number for Japan, meaning that every time he transforms he's literally dialing an emergency phone number for help... from himself.
* TheAloner: At first he doesn't enjoy Mari and Keitaro, preferring to act alone. Over time, he starts to accept their company and appreciate his friends.
* ArtificialStupidity: Due to the fact that its only priority is "Protect Mari" Auto Vajin initially doesn't do a very good job at protecting [[FriendlyFire TAKUMI]]. It eventually becomes a reliable ally to him [[spoiler: even performing a HeroicSacrifice in the finale of both the series and the movie]].
* BloodKnight: Mild example, he grew to enjoy being Faiz.
* BoomerangBigot: [[spoiler: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. Not to mention the fact that he hated his Orphnoch transformation due to misunderstandings.]]
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: It's noticeably the Greek Letter Phi.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: Refused to have anything to do with the Mari in the beginning, but several unintended encounters with Orphnochs and the belt being stolen and used by someone later, finally decides to assume the role of Faiz after seeing just how important that duty was, swearing to prevent it from being stolen.
* CatchPhrase: Not in the series, but his speech showing just how serious he is about protecting people has become iconic to him, having him declare it in many crossovers and game appearances.
--> I don't have dreams. But you know, I can protect them.
* CharacterTic: His wrist flick, which he uses to either taunt opponents, start a battle or signal that he's about to do something awesome. He also kneels before every kick finisher[[note]]Mainly to attach the Faiz Pointer on his leg[[/note]], and only uses Flying Side Kicks (The iconic Rider Kick style) for his kick finishers. These allow the viewers to know that it's Takumi wearing the suit and not anyone else.
* CoolBike: Auto Vajin's Vehicle Mode his Faiz's personal motorcycle. It can drive by itself and has armor made from a similar material as the Rider Gears.
* DeadpanSnarker: He even says it in his nature to be sarcastic.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:He joins Lucky Clover to get Smart Brain to save Mari.]]
* DeathSeeker:
** [[spoiler:When he was tricked into thinking he attacked the Ryusei School reunion, he actively tries to get Kiba to kill him.]]
** Played straight in Kamen Rider Taisen, where [[spoiler: due to not being able to save Kusaka and his friends, he wonders if he deserves to live.]]
** Completely inverted in [[spoiler: Kamen Rider Yongou, where he ACTUALLY died during his series' ending. Due to being revived again, he wants some way to have everyone live, thus creating the time loops. In the end, even if he doesn't want to die again, Takumi destroys the time alteration machine.]]
* [[DefrostingIceQueen 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.
* ThreateningShark: Aside from the Phi and [[spoiler:Wolf]] motifs, Faiz has this as a secondary motif. This is revealed in the ''Kamen Rider Decade'' Net Movies, and can be seen in the little fangs on his mouthplate.
* FaceHeelTurn: He had done this twice after [[spoiler:he revealed his Orphnoch form in the series before he became a DeathSeeker and again in a brief moment during the ''Kamen Rider Taisen'' incident. In fact he is the first main rider to have fell from grace (albeit temporarily), followed by [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Tsukasa Kadoya]] and [[Series/KamenRiderZeroOne Aruto Hiden]]]].
* FakeMemories: In the movie, he sustained a head injury that lead to him becoming amnesiac, so the former Smart Brain scientist who saved him, renamed him Takeshi and gave him false memories in hoping he could take care of Mina.
* FinishingMove: Whenever Faiz inserts a Mission Memory into his gear and presses Enter on the Faiz Driver, he executes an "Exceed Charge" finisher.
** ''[[DivingKick Crimson Smash]]'': A Rider Kick that manifests as a red drill piercing the Orphnoch.
*** ''Axel Crimson Smash'': A variant augmented by the SuperSpeed of Axel form.
*** ''Blaster Crimson Smash'': Another variant with increased power from Blaster form.
** ''[[MegatonPunch Grand Impact]]'': A Rider Punch with the Faiz Shot.
*** ''Axel Grand Impact'': A variant augmented with SuperSpeed.
** ''[[ImplausibleFencingPowers Sparkle Cut]]'': A Rider Slash that powers up the Faiz Edge, traps the enemy with a SwordBeam and finishes it off with a powerful slice.
*** ''Axel Sparkle Cut'': A SuperSpeed-boosted variant.
** Faiz Blaster Sword Mode: ''[[LaserBlade "Photon Breaker"]]'', which coats the Faiz Blaster in Photon Blood energy for a powerful slash.
** Faiz Blaster Gun Mode: ''[[WaveMotionGun "Photon Buster"]]'', which shoots out a massive beam from the Faiz Blaster.
* GatlingGood: Auto Vajin's Buster Wheel in Battle Mode is this. It can fire bullets rapidly from its front wheel.
* {{Handguns}}: Faiz Phone. Notably one of the few examples where the TransformationTrinket doubles as a weapon.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After he finally get over from his own crisis, he resolves to become the main wearer of the Faiz Gear once again and returning to his allies for good.]]
* TheHero: Takumi is the primary protagonist of Kamen Rider Faiz although he sometimes gets overshadowed due to the vast majority of characters and his initial boredom until he got serious about becoming a Kamen Rider.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: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 DeathSeeker.]]\\\ [[spoiler:Then, it happened a third time in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' via {{Retcon}} to have Kusaka die in Takumi's arms, leading to him suffering a ten year BSOD that ends up getting snapped out with thanks to Kensuke Jin, Series/KamenRiderX]].
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Played Literally. [[spoiler:Takumi himself '''is''' the Wolf Orphnoch]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:It is later revealed he acts the way he does becayse he is scared of himself and attempts to isolate himself from people so he can't hurt them.]]
* HourOfPower: Axel Form only lasts for ten seconds before Faiz reverts to normal.
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Takumi is actually [[spoiler:the wolf Orphnoch]].
* IneffectualLoner: Tries several times to get away from Mari and the rest throughout the first arcs and throughout the series out of both being very antisocial and due to a misguided sense of protecting others, but it doesn't work. As it turns out, this is because he was afraid of hurting people and himself when their relationship inevitably ends.
* JackOfAllStats: Faiz Form. Also this among the three Rider Gears, as the Faiz gear is the least powerful, but has multiple functions plus [[spoiler: is the least likely to kill you off quickly.]]
* TheKirk: He's not too keen on friendship as his friends are, but he tries to be the mediator to his more stoic and emotional friends.
* LaserBlade: Faiz Edge is basically a Lightsaber like weapon whose blade is made of Sol Glass. It damages it's opponents not caused by the blade's sharpness alone and the energy it discharges once in contact with the target.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Not only is he the main Rider with Red as a notable secondary color, his SuperMode Blaster Form drives it home by flooding his suit with red Photon Blood.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Double Standard", which describes his situation before the series and thanks to Mari, how much it's changed since he now has something to live for.
* LightningBruiser: Axel Form increases Faiz's power, speed, and defense for it's 10 seconds available while allowing Faiz to move at the speed of sound. The form can easily overpower high speed Orphnoch, with the power to destroy several at once, and can tank damage from almost an Orphnoch except Dragon. The drawback like most forms that fit this mold is that it has a 10-second time limit
* MeaningfulName: "Inui" contains the character for "dog" [[spoiler:(Takumi is the Wolf Orphnoch.)]]
* MemeticHandGesture: 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.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Midway through the season (episode 21: Accelerating Spirits), Kaixa gives Takumi the gadget that allows him to transform into Axel Form, his LightningBruiser form for the series and his strongest powerup until he gets Blaster Form.
* MiniMecha: Auto Vajin when transformed into Battle Mode.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: He's the [[spoiler:Wolf Orphnoch]] who died as a human and came back as a wolf man, with all the power that comes with it.
* PowerFist: The SB-555C Faiz Shot was designed for specific compatility with the Faiz Mission Memory, transforming into an enerhy powered kunckle-duster Faiz can use for his Grand Impact Rider Punch attack. With Axel Form, he can use his enhanced speed to punch multiple enemies while running through them.
* ProtagonistPowerUpPrivileges: [[spoiler: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.]]
* ShoulderCannon: Faiz in Blaster Form has this, the Bloody Cannons.
* TheSlacker: He notes he has no dream and just wants to travel around. After ten episodes worth of CharacterDevelopment, he takes this slacker attitude in a very positive direction.
--> '''Takumi''': You know, I don't have dreams. But I can protect the dreams of others.
* TheSnarkKnight: Very heavily. He's very apathetic towards everyone on the surface, but he's afraid of becoming close to people. When the time comes, despite his cynicism, he'll always do what he thinks is right.
* SuperMode: Blaster Form is his final ultimate form in the series, first seen in the movie before appearing in the show during episode thirty-nine.
* SuperSpeed: Axel Form gives him the speed of sound, but for only 10 seconds.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Faiz Blaster, which has the [[CoolSword Blade]] and [[HandCannon Blaster]] Modes aside from being the briefcase which commands every other function of the Faiz Blaster form.
* TransformingMecha: Auto-Vajin, his CoolBike which not only looks cool and goes fast, but also houses all of his gear and can even transform into a MiniMecha in a pinch.
* {{Tsundere}}: A good case can be made for him. He is pretty snarky to everyone, but it's only a facade to hide a HiddenHeartOfGold because he's scared of hurting people. [[TookALevelInKindness He grows nicer to his friends as the series goes on]].
* WolfMan: [[spoiler:A humanoid wolf as the Wolf Orphnoch.]]

!!Mari Sonoda
!!!Portrayed by: Yuria Haga, Creator/AoiYuki (young)
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mari_sonoda.png]]
A member of the Ryusei School entrusted with the Faiz Gear by her foster father, which she gives to Takumi after finding she is unable to use it herself.
----
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:She dies twice but gets brought back both times.]]
* {{Determinator}}: She has her moments. Like trying to transform into Faiz, despite knowing it won't work on her.
* DudeMagnet: She has three people after her. Kusaka and Sawada have loved her since childhood. While Kaido gets a crush on her as well. [[spoiler: Based on extent that Takumi is willing to go for her, he probably likes her as well.]]
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler:It actually cost her life once.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Kaban" (Bag), which is about her entrusting her future to Takumi.
* ObliviousToLove: She never knew Kusaka and Sawada liked her since childhood, despite everyone else seemed to know.
* RebelLeader: In the movie she's one of the leaders of the human resistance to the Orphnochs, who have succeeded in wiping out most of humanity.
* SayMyName: Shouts "Takumi" quite often.

!!Keitaro Kikuchi
!!!Portrayed by: Ken Mizorogi
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/keitaro_kikuchi.png]]
His family runs a dry cleaning service and he houses some of the crew.
----
* AllergicToEvil: Well, not quite "evil", per se. [[spoiler:The instances where he sneezes and says he's allergic to people with "bad hearts"? There's an Orphnoch nearby. Yes, [[{{Foreshadowing}} that applied to Takumi the first time they met as well]].]]
* ButtMonkey: [[spoiler:In episode 41 at least. The fact it's presented as a comedy moment makes it even worse.]]
* ForHappiness: The philosophy behind why he cleans clothes, and everything else.
* NiceGuy: He's this through and through, compared to Takumi's JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* NonActionGuy: Since he can't use the Faiz belt.
* RefusedByTheCall: Tried to use the Faiz belt once. Since he's [[spoiler:a normal human]], it rejected him.
* StarCrossedLovers: With [[spoiler:Yuka]].
* TookALevelInBadass: In the movie [[spoiler: where he gets a chance to transform into Kaixa and defeat an Orphnoch]].

[[folder:Masato Kusaka]]
!!Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa
!!!Portrayed by: Kohei Murakami
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/masato_kusaka.png]]
[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/krkaixa.png]]
A man whose one purpose in life is [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Mari's love]], and [[{{Yandere}} he'll do anything to have it]]. Since all our heroes are quite close to Mari, this causes... problems, not helped by the fact that even without that he's an [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk unrepentant jerkass]]. The primary user of the Kaixa Gear.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: Kusaka was never a good guy in the first place in the series, but his counterpart from the non-canon novels is far worse and crosses lines he never would, namely, [[spoiler: violently raping Mari at one point.]]
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: He was in love with Mari since childhood, she never knew till he flat out told her. And at the end she seemed more [[spoiler:interested in Kiba and later Takumi. This doesn't end well for him.]]
* AmbiguousDisorder: Kusaka is not only a PTSD victim, but he also suffers from a high-functioning mixed personality disorder with both [[TheSociopath antisocial]] and [[{{Yandere}} borderline]] traits.
* AntiHero: [[UpToEleven Verily]], because of his backstabbing, scheming tendencies causing SO MANY problems. People are somehow unable to see how much of an ass he is despite this. Because his hatred is against the Orphnoch, he's a NominalHero by virtue of being against the antagonists and monsters, yet even THAT falls flat on its face when he [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman refuses to see the human side of Orphnochs even when some are genuinely good people]], including [[spoiler: Takumi himself.]]. Even after [[spoiler: he's killed before the last few episodes]], it's pretty clear that [[spoiler: the heroes are now mostly dealing with the fallout of his constant sabotage of their efforts to unite, most notably Kiba's turn to the dark side, which makes his death by hands of the man he more or less psychologically tortured EXTREMELY karmic.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: When he was a child, Mari defended him from a group of bullies. This led to him [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished developing a lifelong obsession with her]].
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Greek letter Χ (Chi), which is part of Kaixa's motif as seen in his chest, his Memory Mission, and his insignia.
* CharacterTic:
** Wiping his hands with hand wipes when out of Gear, or wiping his hands when in Gear. Takumi lampshades it and snarks if Kusaka is a [[TerrifiedOfGerms germaphobe]]. [[spoiler: It's a compulsion Kusaka developed after he imagined he had spilled blood on the night of the Ryusei School reunion.]]
** Occasionally, he'll adjust his collar while transformed.
** All his Rider Kicks are double dropkicks.
* CoolSidecar: SB-913V Side Basshar, as the name would suggest. In vehicle mode, the Side Basshar can travel through rough terrain safely and the side car can move on itís own. The tires are made of Sol Rubber, similar metallic properties to the Rider Gears. In Battle Mode, itís transforms into a walking battle mecha is itís stronger aspect. The sidecar has a a pincered heat point capable of generating temperatures up to 2000 degrees celsius during grappling attacks, and the machine can fire eight to forty eight misiles with a range of 2400 meters.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Mari, and he reacts with extreme violence if he thinks you are planning to do anything to her. Or be next to be.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: Kusaka in the retconned version of his death in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' on Takumi's arms, asking him why he has to die [[MoralMyopia when someone like Takumi with nothing to protect lives on.]]
* FantasticRacism: He does not respect, care, or treat Orphnoch as normal human beings. While most of them were either a MonsterOfTheWeek, he sees the ones that aren't violent and even his own peers and potential allies as lesser beings that deserve to be murdered.
* FinishingMove:
** [[DivingKick ''Gold Smash'']]: Kaixa jumps in the air and the Kaixa Pointer produces a pair of overlapping yellow energy drills around his foot while executing the deathblow with a double dropkicks.
** [[MegatonPunch ''Grand Impact'']]: Using the Kaixa Shot, the rider uses a energy powered knuckle-duster to deliver a punch.
** [[ImplausibleFencingPowers ''Xeno Crash'']]: Kaixa shoots a constricting energy net from the gun section of the Kaixa Blaygun as the sword section is over-charged. Kaixaís speed increase to slash the enemy with a dashing strike from the energy it discharges with the target.
* FreudianExcuse: The closest thing he has to a reason for the way he is involves being bullied as a child, Mari standing up for him, and the fact that the Orphnochs did attack him first and killed some of his classmates.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: At least in regards to his "allies" that actually know he's a ManipulativeBastard.
* {{Handguns}}: Much like the Faiz Phone, The Kaixa Phone can function like one.
* HateSink: He is a generally unlikeable person who manipulates others into thinking he's a charming AntiHero, betrays allies for his own greed and lust, and even pisses off some of the villains. Even in his final moments, Kusaka is arrogant and sociopathic with almost no redeeming qualities as his death was much deserved.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Proclaims that Orphnochs are inherently inhuman inside and out, yet is arguably the worst monster in the show. Even Smart Brain's Orphnochs, however twisted, are driven by a sense of survival for their kind.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Arguably the best example in the franchise, particularly among the ones who are called "Kamen Rider". Orphnoch DNA allowing him to use the Gears aside, he's fully human, yet outdoes Smart Brain in sheer inhumanity and callousness. They commit their cruelties in the name of their kind's survival. He commits his out of self-entitlement, pettiness, and spite.
* ItsAllAboutMe: ''THE'' defining aspect of his character. He will stop at nothing until he himself lords over everyone else, even if they are fellow humans.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: While his predecessors and many successors in the ''Secondary Rider'' line are more of [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Gold Hearts]], he's so far the first of said category to be a full blown {{Jerkass}} whom his so-called allies thought he changed his ways after Takumi's redemption, and it wouldn't be until [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Mitsuzane Kureshima]] that we'd get another(the latter is more of a ''Tertiary Rider''). Curiously, Mitsuzane shared many traits with him.
** JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: In ''[[Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai Kamen Rider Taisen]]'', mentioned the following quote to Takumi in his retconned death scene:]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Kusaka''': Why... Why does someone as hollow as you with nothing to protect get to live? Why do I have to die?!]]
*** This trope is at least played with when you study Kusaka's character and history. He only thinks Takumi is hollow and has nothing to protect, because he's incapable of thinking Takumi as anything but scum, [[spoiler: even if the latter wasn't an Orphnoch]], and sees everyone else as a tool to help him succeed, save for Mari (and even then, he seems to treat her as more of a possession than as a person). Then, you consider everything about him, namely his character, his sense of self-entitlement, his sheer sociopathy, and everything he's done, then it's plain to see that [[spoiler: [[AssholeVictim he pretty much deserved to die horribly]], no matter what canon]]. That said, it also doesn't stop Takumi from feeling the least bit upset about him, and in this case seems to think Kusaka was actually right for once to call him out on this because of the HiddenHeartOfGold-hiding facade he used to isolate others, making him appear hollow to everyone.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: No matter the continuity, he never completely gets away with what he does. Sooner or later, his luck finally runs out. Even in Series/KamenRiderZiO, where he apparently isn't as bad as usual, [[spoiler: he comes dangerously close to getting his neck snapped again.]]
* KarmicDeath: In the ''Faiz'' novel, [[spoiler:his stalkerish behavior towards and rape of Mari gets paid back by Kiba literally ripping him limb-from-limb and his getting "taken in" by his own StalkerWithACrush, [[SparedByTheAdaptation Saya Kimura]], very much in the fashion of ''Literature/{{Misery}}''.]]
** Also applies in the series proper: [[spoiler: Throughout most of the show, he'd been sabotaging the potential friendship of Takumi and Kiba, and subsequently, any chance of a united front against Smart Brain, just for his own ends, also torturing both about their supposed [[{{Hypocrite}} inherent inhumanity]]. He's murdered by Kiba, who had finally snapped at this point and joined Smart Brain, all of which is largely his fault. And Kiba does the deed with Kusaka's own Kaixa Gear, which Kiba had recently taken from him. Moreover, he dies alone, the others nearby looking for him, missing him by a few meters, and him unable to get their attention as he fades away like the wretch he was in life.]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: His unhinged obsession towards Mari is the main reason why he wants to get rid of everyone who is close to her.
* ManipulativeBastard: Good lord, he for a time had everyone around his thumb. [[spoiler:Even at his death, Keitaro and Mari didn't completely understand how much of a bastard he was.]]
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: He gets dealt this in his in-series death before being left to die the pathetic death he at that point ''greatly deserved.'']]
* NominalHero: Kusaka isn't a hero or even anti-hero, but is closer to a villain who just happens to be fighting the threat the heroes are also fighting. And even then, he takes it WAY further than the heroes do, out of simple hatred, by classifying every Orphnoch he sees, and anybody who gets in his way to a lesser extent, as so evil they only deserve the worst.
* OedipusComplex: He once said to Takumi that Mari could become his mother. [[spoiler:He even later grows to hate his step father.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler:Sees Takumi mainly as this.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Gave Takumi the Axel Watch for absolutely no reason stated, though it's likely that he didn't care either.
* PowerFist: Kaixa Shot.
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler:His death in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' is shown to have happened when Takumi was present.]]
* ReverseGrip: Wields the Kaixa Blaygun this way. Justified, as the blade is uni-directional and the gun barrel is away from the traditional sword edge.
* SlasherSmile: [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v33/updatedude/KamenRiderFaiz/kusaka03.jpg Exhibit A]]
%%* SmugSnake
* SwissArmyWeapon: Kaixa Blaygun.
* TheSociopath: He cares little for anyone's feelings. He states battle is nothing but a test to him.
* TheSpock: He's a cold and sociopathic pragmatist.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Condescending towards Takumi, though he's charismatic enough to keep his true nature eclipsed from Mari and Keitaro.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He might be fighting against the Orphnoch, but he is a complete bastard with his attempts to taking Takumi's place in Mari's heart, or really ANYONE'S place in Mari's heart.
* TransformingMecha: Side Basshar.
* TheUnfettered: His only two goals are to protect and be with Mari and to stop the Orphnoch and Smart Brain. He'll only consider giving one of these up if he sees them as having become mutually exclusive, such as [[spoiler:when he has to choose between giving the belts to Smart Brain or not reviving Mari; he chooses the latter since he has no guarantee Smart Brain will keep their word.]]
* {{Yandere}}: He gets violently jealous of anyone close to Mari.

The primary user of the Delta Gear.
----
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Delta Gear has its own Delta symbol on it.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: [[spoiler:After getting the Delta gear, Smart Brain starts tracking his movements to get the belt back.]]
* CharacterTic: All his Rider Kicks are Bicycle Kicks.
* FinishingMove: ''Lucifer's Hammer''
* FriendToAllChildren: Having been an orphan once, he and Rina work at an orphanage, wanting to care for the children with no parents.
* {{Handguns}}: Delta Blaster.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Which is why he is the perfect user for the Delta belt: he is one of the few that it's power ''didn't'' corrupt.
* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler:He doesn't show up in TheMovie for this reason. The explanation comes in the prequel story ''Lost World'' (from S.I.C. Hero Saga), where Kusaka throws him to the Rose Orphnoch because he's (wrongly) convinced that Mihara was putting the moves on Mari.]]
* LovableCoward: At first he doesn't really care about fighting the Orphnochs and just wants to go back to living a normal life. He got better.
* TheMcCoy: The most angsty of the three Riders.
* RefusalOfTheCall: [[spoiler:Even before he got the Delta belt, he actively tried to ignore the weirdness going around him. Subverted later on, when he FINALLY realizes that he has the responsibility to fight for others.]]
* ShipTease: He has some with Rina.
* UnskilledButStrong: As the Delta user, he has the most power. But has no idea how to fight, nor does he want to.

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/krorga.png]]
* AllUpToYou: At the end of ''Paradise Lost'' [[spoiler:a dying Yuji entrusts Takumi to fulfill his dream of peace between humans and Orphnochs.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Yuka's death apparently at the hands of human police sends him over the edge and causes him to [[FaceHeelTurn abandon his ideals]]. In [[TheMovie Paradise Lost]], this also happens when Murakami and Smart Lady trick Kiba into thinking Mari betrayed him in order to turn him against humanity so he can become Kamen Rider Orga.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Yuji is the secondary protagonist of the series, with almost enough focus and CharacterDevelopment as Takumi and even became Faiz as the main hero for a while. He's also the first main deuteragonist to not be a Secondary Rider (even though he ends up using two [[spoiler: three counting ''Paradise Lost'' rider gears]]).
* FallenHero: [[spoiler:By the end, he ends up as an AntiVillain after losing his humanity in Yuka's supposed death by the police and becoming the Chairman of Smart Brain.]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Because he's confused about whether he's more human or Orphnoch, whether protecting either side is just, or whether either side is just at all, not to mention [[{{Jerkass}} Kusaka mucking up any chance of him permanently becoming friends with Takumi]], he allies with the main characters as much as he goes against them.
* HenshinHero: Has briefly had time as both Faiz and Kaixa. Notably, he's the ''only'' non-protagonist in the history of the franchise, who has taken on the role of the protagonist Rider for more than two episodes (Yuji was Kamen Rider Faiz for ''four'' episodes). [[spoiler: Then there's him becoming Orga in the movie]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He does this less than Yuka, but he ends up killing a lot of villainous Orphnochs and characters [[spoiler:such as Kusaka]] who've murdered innocent people, played friends like chess, and were overall horrible people.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Yes, he's the ''Horse'' Orphnoch, but his powered-up form does resemble a centaur more than anything else.
* MightyGlacier: [[spoiler:As Orga, Kiba has the best defensive and offense output of all the five Rider gears and even Faiz Axel. He has more power than [[StoneWall Kaixa]], [[LightningBruiser more physical power and produces more Photon Blood than Psyga]], and [[JackOfAllTrades has more variety in his attack capabilities than Delta]]. It can also tank attacks from the Elasmotherium Orphnoch, the biggest and most dangerous, who killed Yuka, ate Kaidou, and smashed the Auto Vajin in one hit. The downside is that it is extremely slow, being unable to keep up with [[JackOfAllStats any of Faiz's forms]], it's much slower than Kaixa and it's powerful armor is more weighted than the rest.]]
* NiceGuy: Yuji is a nice character that wants to protect humans and help Takumi in spite of his horrendous backstory. The only problem is that Kusaka has a nasty habit of tricking Yuji in fighting Faiz.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:After abandoning his ideals and performing a FaceHeelTurn, Kiba comes back around and sacrifices himself by holding down the Arch Orphonoch in the FinalBattle so Faiz can land the deciding Rider Kick, killing both Yuji and the Arch Orphonoch.]]
* TraumaCongaLine: Holy. The first episode alone, has him being getting into a car accident putting him in a coma for 2 years. Then dying and reviving as an Orphnoch. He then finds, one his parents are dead, two he's homeless as his uncle sold his house, and that his uncle is corrupt. Three his girlfriend moved on and is dating his cousin, and his cousin tells him this in the most jackass way possible. Then he finds out his girlfriend was a BitchInSheepsClothing the whole time, namely without knowing Yuji killed his cousin she sells him out to the police right in front of him just to save herself.

The first member of Lucky Clover to be sent out after Faiz, Mr. J is an Orphnoch with the power to regenerate himself after suffering fatal wounds, though it only works twice.
----
* BackFromTheDead: He can revive himself twice, meaning he has to be killed [[RuleOfThree three]] times in order to fully defeat him.

* TheBrute: He seems to be Murakami's go-to-guy for missions that require assassination and brute force.

* PoisonousPerson: In his Orphnoch form he's capable of emitting toxic substances that cause pain.

The Lucky Clover member who runs their bar and acts as something of a TeamMom to the other members.
----
* DarkChick: The [[TheSmurfettePrinciple only female]] member who runs the Lucky Clover's clover bar.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. When Kitazaki decided to kill Teruo in hopes of being the new king, Saeko and Takuma turn on him to protect their king, though she also did this out of the intent to survive.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She acts comforting to her victims, though its often while she's in the process of killing them.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Killed Yuka and thus set off Kiba's FaceHeelTurn, yet she managed to survive the end of the series, albeit insane and trapped in her Orphnoch form. Also, if one were to take ''Film/OOODenOAllRidersLetsGoKamenRiders'' into account, then it's [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when Faiz [[KarmaHoudiniWarranty voids the Lobster Orphonoch's warranty]].]]

* PetTheDog: Occasionally comforts Takuma from any of his distresses such as his conflicts with Kitazaki.

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dragon_orphnoch_0.png]]
Lucky Clover's youngest member and the most ruthless Orphnoch to work for Smart Brain. Kitazaki is a socially-withdrawn teenager with one thing in mind: to have fun at the expense of others.
----
* AmbiguousDisorder: Aside from his obvious sociopathy, Kitazaki's mannerisms suggest he may have an autism spectrum disorder.
* AxCrazy: Kitazaki is clearly the most unhinged Orphnoch among Smart Brain's elite.
* BigBadWannabe: Kitazaki really, really wants to be the strongest Orphnoch, but unfortunately for him, he is nowhere near as dangerous as the Arch-Orphnoch when it awakens, [[spoiler:and his unwillingness to accept this is what gets him killed in the end]].
* BloodKnight: Kitazaki likes a good fight just as he likes killing, considering "fighting" and "playing" to be the same thing.
* TheBully: What he really is at his core, an obnoxious, disrespectful teenager who torments everyone around him and still thinks he is the best.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:His face is ripped off and devoured by the Arch-Orphnoch]]. Not that he didn't deserve it.
* DragonInChief: He is both stronger and faster than Murakami, but works under him solely to have his fun.
* {{Expy}}: From being a BigBadWannabe with BloodKnight tendencies and having the personality of a SerialKiller, Kitazaki is very, VERY similar to [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Asakura]] from the previous season.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: The only person to show respect for him is Saeko Kageyama, and that's because she's the TeamMom; said respect is gone in the last episodes and she conspires with Takuma to betray him.
* GoodHairEvilHair: His hair is always messy and unkempt, and so are his signature clothes, reflecting on how he ignores his own appearance to give more importance to things he considers to be fun.
* HateSink: Not to the same level as Kusaka, but from his arrogant attitude to his treatment of Takuma, it's hard not to hate him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Aside from his love of violence, he displays an extreme amount of arrogance and disregard for others.
* LackOfEmpathy: As far as he's concerned, other people are nothing more than toys to be broken and thrown away.
* {{Narcissist}}: Thinks he is better than his king, and tries to kill him just to prove it. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath He soon learns that trying it wasn't a good idea.]]
* PsychoForHire: It's pretty clear that he is just following Murakami's orders to satisfy his boredom.
* SerialKiller: All Orphnochs working for Smart Brain qualify to a degree, but Kitazaki comes the closest to being the most accurate depiction of one in the series.
* SoftSpokenSadist: He rarely raises his voice, and it's hard for him not to smile or laugh while killing someone.
* TheSociopath: What Kusaka has in charisma, Kitazaki has in cruelty. Unlike Kusaka, Kitazaki makes no attempt to hide this, and shows that he's a heartless person even if he's not in battle.
* TeensAreMonsters: The worst Lucky Clover has to offer, and not even an adult.

----
* CanonImmigrant: Created for a NonSerialMovie but ended up being incorporated in the series itself.

A character exclusive to the movie adaptation. Leo is a powerful, but arrogant Rider that acts as the leader of the Riotroopers.
----
* BloodKnight: Battle is just a "game" for him to win.
* DragonInChief: To Murakami, considering Murakami is a [[BrainInAJar head in a jar]] and can't really do much he relies on Leo to be his enforcer.
* DualWielding: Psyga uses dual tonfas called the Psyga Tonfa Edge, which are also [[LaserBlade Laser Blades]]. He also uses the Flying Attacker's Blaster Rifles, which are the two engines of the Flying Attacker that are converted laser cannons in Blaster Rifle Mode.
* {{Expy}}: Leo is basically a much more mature Kitazaki.
* FinishingMove:
** ''Psyga Slash'': Psyga inserts the Mission Memory into his Tonfa Edge and performs an energy-charged slash. The only finisher Psyga actually uses in ''Paradise Lost''.
** [[AllThereInTheManual Side materials]] revealed that Psyga has his own versions of the [[DivingKick Rider Kick]] and [[MegatonPunch Rider Punch]], named ''Cobalt Smash'' and ''Sky Impact'' respectively, which use the Flying Attacker to enhance their power.
* GlassCannon: Psyga's got strength that matches the main Riders and has good combat experience, also mentioning that he has incredible speed from his Flying Attacker. But, simply damaging it will leave him without his flight capabilities, which helped his evasiveness, and leaves him with just his Psyga Phone and Psyga Tonga Edge in his arsenal.
* {{Handguns}}: Similar to the main Riders, the Psyga Phone can also switch to a small blaster.
* TheHeavy: The one who spearheads the Orphnochs' hunt of the remaining humans.
* HeroKiller: Murdered Kusaka, reducing him to dust.
* JetPack: As Kamen Rider Psyga, he wears one called the Flying Attacker to fly around in battle. It also holds his weapons the Psyga Tonfa Edge and Flying Attacker's Blaster Rifles.
* LightIsNotGood: Psyga's suit is in bright colors, but he's far from being anything close to goodness.
* MookLieutenant: Leads the Riotroopers in ''Paradise Lost'' and acts as Murakami's [[TheDragon top enforcer]].
* PsychoForHire: Feels no compassion for the lives of humans and Orphnochs, and works for Smart Brain.
* TheSociopath: Leo shares the same impulses as Kitazaki, but is just better at hiding it from others.
* SociopathicSoldier: A mix of Type 1 and 2. Leo feels superior to humans, but enjoys fighting and killing other Orphnochs for the sake of it.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: He speaks it fluently in character (and out, considering Peter Ho is an American).

* FiveFiveFive: Obviously. It's a pun on "Phi", "Fives" and "Faiz." Hilariously enough, 555 is a possible emergency number for Japan, meaning that every time he transforms he's literally dialing an emergency phone number for help... from himself.
[[Characters/KamenRider555MainCharacters Main Characters]]
* TheAloner: At first he doesn't enjoy Mari and Keitaro, preferring to act alone. Over time, he starts to accept their company and appreciate his friends.
* ArtificialStupidity: Due to the fact that its only priority is "Protect Mari" Auto Vajin initially doesn't do a very good job at protecting [[FriendlyFire TAKUMI]]. It eventually becomes a reliable ally to him [[spoiler: even performing a HeroicSacrifice in the finale of both the series and the movie]].
* BloodKnight: Mild example, he grew to enjoy being Faiz.
* BoomerangBigot: [[spoiler: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. Not to mention the fact that he hated his Orphnoch transformation due to misunderstandings.]]
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: It's noticeably the Greek Letter Phi.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: Refused to have anything to do with the Mari in the beginning, but several unintended encounters with Orphnochs and the belt being stolen and used by someone later, finally decides to assume the role of Faiz after seeing just how important that duty was, swearing to prevent it from being stolen.
* CatchPhrase: Not in the series, but his speech showing just how serious he is about protecting people has become iconic to him, having him declare it in many crossovers and game appearances.
--> I don't have dreams. But you know, I can protect them.
* CharacterTic: His wrist flick, which he uses to either taunt opponents, start a battle or signal that he's about to do something awesome. He also kneels before every kick finisher[[note]]Mainly to attach the Faiz Pointer on his leg[[/note]], and only uses Flying Side Kicks (The iconic Rider Kick style) for his kick finishers. These allow the viewers to know that it's Takumi wearing the suit and not anyone else.
* CoolBike: Auto Vajin's Vehicle Mode his Faiz's personal motorcycle. It can drive by itself and has armor made from a similar material as the Rider Gears.
* DeadpanSnarker: He even says it in his nature to be sarcastic.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:He joins Lucky Clover to get Smart Brain to save Mari.]]
* DeathSeeker:
** [[spoiler:When he was tricked into thinking he attacked the
[[Characters/KamenRider555RyuseiSchool Ryusei School reunion, he actively tries to get Kiba to kill him.]]
** Played straight in Kamen Rider Taisen, where [[spoiler: due to not being able to save Kusaka and his friends, he wonders if he deserves to live.]]
** Completely inverted in [[spoiler: Kamen Rider Yongou, where he ACTUALLY died during his series' ending. Due to being revived again, he wants some way to have everyone live, thus creating the time loops. In the end, even if he doesn't want to die again, Takumi destroys the time alteration machine.]]
School]]
* [[DefrostingIceQueen 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.
[[Characters/KamenRider555Orphnochs Orphnochs]]
* ThreateningShark: Aside from the Phi and [[spoiler:Wolf]] motifs, Faiz has this as a secondary motif. This is revealed in the ''Kamen Rider Decade'' Net Movies, and can be seen in the little fangs on his mouthplate.
[[Characters/KamenRider555Others Others]]
* FaceHeelTurn: He had done this twice after [[spoiler:he revealed his Orphnoch form in the series before he became a DeathSeeker and again in a brief moment during the ''Kamen Rider Taisen'' incident. In fact he is the first main rider to have fell from grace (albeit temporarily), followed by [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Tsukasa Kadoya]] and [[Series/KamenRiderZeroOne Aruto Hiden]]]].
* FakeMemories: In the movie, he sustained a head injury that lead to him becoming amnesiac, so the former Smart Brain scientist who saved him, renamed him Takeshi and gave him false memories in hoping he could take care of Mina.
* FinishingMove: Whenever Faiz inserts a Mission Memory into his gear and presses Enter on the Faiz Driver, he executes an "Exceed Charge" finisher.
** ''[[DivingKick Crimson Smash]]'': A Rider Kick that manifests as a red drill piercing the Orphnoch.
*** ''Axel Crimson Smash'': A variant augmented by the SuperSpeed of Axel form.
*** ''Blaster Crimson Smash'': Another variant with increased power from Blaster form.
** ''[[MegatonPunch Grand Impact]]'': A Rider Punch with the Faiz Shot.
*** ''Axel Grand Impact'': A variant augmented with SuperSpeed.
** ''[[ImplausibleFencingPowers Sparkle Cut]]'': A Rider Slash that powers up the Faiz Edge, traps the enemy with a SwordBeam and finishes it off with a powerful slice.
*** ''Axel Sparkle Cut'': A SuperSpeed-boosted variant.
** Faiz Blaster Sword Mode: ''[[LaserBlade "Photon Breaker"]]'', which coats the Faiz Blaster in Photon Blood energy for a powerful slash.
** Faiz Blaster Gun Mode: ''[[WaveMotionGun "Photon Buster"]]'', which shoots out a massive beam from the Faiz Blaster.
* GatlingGood: Auto Vajin's Buster Wheel in Battle Mode is this. It can fire bullets rapidly from its front wheel.
* {{Handguns}}: Faiz Phone. Notably one of the few examples where the TransformationTrinket doubles as a weapon.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After he finally get over from his own crisis, he resolves to become the main wearer of the Faiz Gear once again and returning to his allies for good.]]
* TheHero: Takumi is the primary protagonist of Kamen Rider Faiz although he sometimes gets overshadowed due to the vast majority of characters and his initial boredom until he got serious about becoming a Kamen Rider.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: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 DeathSeeker.]]\\\ [[spoiler:Then, it happened a third time in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' via {{Retcon}} to have Kusaka die in Takumi's arms, leading to him suffering a ten year BSOD that ends up getting snapped out with thanks to Kensuke Jin, Series/KamenRiderX]].
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Played Literally. [[spoiler:Takumi himself '''is''' the Wolf Orphnoch]]
* HiddenHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:It is later revealed he acts the way he does becayse he is scared of himself and attempts to isolate himself from people so he can't hurt them.]]
* HourOfPower: Axel Form only lasts for ten seconds before Faiz reverts to normal.
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: Takumi is actually [[spoiler:the wolf Orphnoch]].
* IneffectualLoner: Tries several times to get away from Mari and the rest throughout the first arcs and throughout the series out of both being very antisocial and due to a misguided sense of protecting others, but it doesn't work. As it turns out, this is because he was afraid of hurting people and himself when their relationship inevitably ends.
* JackOfAllStats: Faiz Form. Also this among the three Rider Gears, as the Faiz gear is the least powerful, but has multiple functions plus [[spoiler: is the least likely to kill you off quickly.]]
* TheKirk: He's not too keen on friendship as his friends are, but he tries to be the mediator to his more stoic and emotional friends.
* LaserBlade: Faiz Edge is basically a Lightsaber like weapon whose blade is made of Sol Glass. It damages it's opponents not caused by the blade's sharpness alone and the energy it discharges once in contact with the target.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Not only is he the main Rider with Red as a notable secondary color, his SuperMode Blaster Form drives it home by flooding his suit with red Photon Blood.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Double Standard", which describes his situation before the series and thanks to Mari, how much it's changed since he now has something to live for.
* LightningBruiser: Axel Form increases Faiz's power, speed, and defense for it's 10 seconds available while allowing Faiz to move at the speed of sound. The form can easily overpower high speed Orphnoch, with the power to destroy several at once, and can tank damage from almost an Orphnoch except Dragon. The drawback like most forms that fit this mold is that it has a 10-second time limit
* MeaningfulName: "Inui" contains the character for "dog" [[spoiler:(Takumi is the Wolf Orphnoch.)]]
* MemeticHandGesture: 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.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Midway through the season (episode 21: Accelerating Spirits), Kaixa gives Takumi the gadget that allows him to transform into Axel Form, his LightningBruiser form for the series and his strongest powerup until he gets Blaster Form.
* MiniMecha: Auto Vajin when transformed into Battle Mode.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: He's the [[spoiler:Wolf Orphnoch]] who died as a human and came back as a wolf man, with all the power that comes with it.
* PowerFist: The SB-555C Faiz Shot was designed for specific compatility with the Faiz Mission Memory, transforming into an enerhy powered kunckle-duster Faiz can use for his Grand Impact Rider Punch attack. With Axel Form, he can use his enhanced speed to punch multiple enemies while running through them.
* ProtagonistPowerUpPrivileges: [[spoiler: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.]]
* ShoulderCannon: Faiz in Blaster Form has this, the Bloody Cannons.
* TheSlacker: He notes he has no dream and just wants to travel around. After ten episodes worth of CharacterDevelopment, he takes this slacker attitude in a very positive direction.
--> '''Takumi''': You know, I don't have dreams. But I can protect the dreams of others.
* TheSnarkKnight: Very heavily. He's very apathetic towards everyone on the surface, but he's afraid of becoming close to people. When the time comes, despite his cynicism, he'll always do what he thinks is right.
* SuperMode: Blaster Form is his final ultimate form in the series, first seen in the movie before appearing in the show during episode thirty-nine.
* SuperSpeed: Axel Form gives him the speed of sound, but for only 10 seconds.
* SwissArmyWeapon: Faiz Blaster, which has the [[CoolSword Blade]] and [[HandCannon Blaster]] Modes aside from being the briefcase which commands every other function of the Faiz Blaster form.
* TransformingMecha: Auto-Vajin, his CoolBike which not only looks cool and goes fast, but also houses all of his gear and can even transform into a MiniMecha in a pinch.
* {{Tsundere}}: A good case can be made for him. He is pretty snarky to everyone, but it's only a facade to hide a HiddenHeartOfGold because he's scared of hurting people. [[TookALevelInKindness He grows nicer to his friends as the series goes on]].
* WolfMan: [[spoiler:A humanoid wolf as the Wolf Orphnoch.]]

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/krkaixa.png]]
A man whose one purpose in life is [[LoveMakesYouCrazy Mari's love]], and [[{{Yandere}} he'll do anything to have it]]. Since all our heroes are quite close to Mari, this causes... problems, not helped by the fact that even without that he's an [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk unrepentant jerkass]]. The primary user of the Kaixa Gear.
----
* AdaptationalVillainy: Kusaka was never a good guy in the first place in the series, but his counterpart from the non-canon novels is far worse and crosses lines he never would, namely, [[spoiler: violently raping Mari at one point.]]
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: He was in love with Mari since childhood, she never knew till he flat out told her. And at the end she seemed more [[spoiler:interested in Kiba and later Takumi. This doesn't end well for him.]]
* AmbiguousDisorder: Kusaka is not only a PTSD victim, but he also suffers from a high-functioning mixed personality disorder with both [[TheSociopath antisocial]] and [[{{Yandere}} borderline]] traits.
* AntiHero: [[UpToEleven Verily]], because of his backstabbing, scheming tendencies causing SO MANY problems. People are somehow unable to see how much of an ass he is despite this. Because his hatred is against the Orphnoch, he's a NominalHero by virtue of being against the antagonists and monsters, yet even THAT falls flat on its face when he [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman refuses to see the human side of Orphnochs even when some are genuinely good people]], including [[spoiler: Takumi himself.]]. Even after [[spoiler: he's killed before the last few episodes]], it's pretty clear that [[spoiler: the heroes are now mostly dealing with the fallout of his constant sabotage of their efforts to unite, most notably Kiba's turn to the dark side, which makes his death by hands of the man he more or less psychologically tortured EXTREMELY karmic.]]
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: When he was a child, Mari defended him from a group of bullies. This led to him [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished developing a lifelong obsession with her]].
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Greek letter Χ (Chi), which is part of Kaixa's motif as seen in his chest, his Memory Mission, and his insignia.
* CharacterTic:
** Wiping his hands with hand wipes when out of Gear, or wiping his hands when in Gear. Takumi lampshades it and snarks if Kusaka is a [[TerrifiedOfGerms germaphobe]]. [[spoiler: It's a compulsion Kusaka developed after he imagined he had spilled blood on the night of the Ryusei School reunion.]]
** Occasionally, he'll adjust his collar while transformed.
** All his Rider Kicks are double dropkicks.
* CoolSidecar: SB-913V Side Basshar, as the name would suggest. In vehicle mode, the Side Basshar can travel through rough terrain safely and the side car can move on itís own. The tires are made of Sol Rubber, similar metallic properties to the Rider Gears. In Battle Mode, itís transforms into a walking battle mecha is itís stronger aspect. The sidecar has a a pincered heat point capable of generating temperatures up to 2000 degrees celsius during grappling attacks, and the machine can fire eight to forty eight misiles with a range of 2400 meters.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Towards Mari, and he reacts with extreme violence if he thinks you are planning to do anything to her. Or be next to be.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: Kusaka in the retconned version of his death in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' on Takumi's arms, asking him why he has to die [[MoralMyopia when someone like Takumi with nothing to protect lives on.]]
* FantasticRacism: He does not respect, care, or treat Orphnoch as normal human beings. While most of them were either a MonsterOfTheWeek, he sees the ones that aren't violent and even his own peers and potential allies as lesser beings that deserve to be murdered.
* FinishingMove:
** [[DivingKick ''Gold Smash'']]: Kaixa jumps in the air and the Kaixa Pointer produces a pair of overlapping yellow energy drills around his foot while executing the deathblow with a double dropkicks.
** [[MegatonPunch ''Grand Impact'']]: Using the Kaixa Shot, the rider uses a energy powered knuckle-duster to deliver a punch.
** [[ImplausibleFencingPowers ''Xeno Crash'']]: Kaixa shoots a constricting energy net from the gun section of the Kaixa Blaygun as the sword section is over-charged. Kaixaís speed increase to slash the enemy with a dashing strike from the energy it discharges with the target.
* FreudianExcuse: The closest thing he has to a reason for the way he is involves being bullied as a child, Mari standing up for him, and the fact that the Orphnochs did attack him first and killed some of his classmates.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: At least in regards to his "allies" that actually know he's a ManipulativeBastard.
* {{Handguns}}: Much like the Faiz Phone, The Kaixa Phone can function like one.
* HateSink: He is a generally unlikeable person who manipulates others into thinking he's a charming AntiHero, betrays allies for his own greed and lust, and even pisses off some of the villains. Even in his final moments, Kusaka is arrogant and sociopathic with almost no redeeming qualities as his death was much deserved.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Proclaims that Orphnochs are inherently inhuman inside and out, yet is arguably the worst monster in the show. Even Smart Brain's Orphnochs, however twisted, are driven by a sense of survival for their kind.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Arguably the best example in the franchise, particularly among the ones who are called "Kamen Rider". Orphnoch DNA allowing him to use the Gears aside, he's fully human, yet outdoes Smart Brain in sheer inhumanity and callousness. They commit their cruelties in the name of their kind's survival. He commits his out of self-entitlement, pettiness, and spite.
* ItsAllAboutMe: ''THE'' defining aspect of his character. He will stop at nothing until he himself lords over everyone else, even if they are fellow humans.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: While his predecessors and many successors in the ''Secondary Rider'' line are more of [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerks With Gold Hearts]], he's so far the first of said category to be a full blown {{Jerkass}} whom his so-called allies thought he changed his ways after Takumi's redemption, and it wouldn't be until [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Mitsuzane Kureshima]] that we'd get another(the latter is more of a ''Tertiary Rider''). Curiously, Mitsuzane shared many traits with him.
** JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: In ''[[Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai Kamen Rider Taisen]]'', mentioned the following quote to Takumi in his retconned death scene:]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Kusaka''': Why... Why does someone as hollow as you with nothing to protect get to live? Why do I have to die?!]]
*** This trope is at least played with when you study Kusaka's character and history. He only thinks Takumi is hollow and has nothing to protect, because he's incapable of thinking Takumi as anything but scum, [[spoiler: even if the latter wasn't an Orphnoch]], and sees everyone else as a tool to help him succeed, save for Mari (and even then, he seems to treat her as more of a possession than as a person). Then, you consider everything about him, namely his character, his sense of self-entitlement, his sheer sociopathy, and everything he's done, then it's plain to see that [[spoiler: [[AssholeVictim he pretty much deserved to die horribly]], no matter what canon]]. That said, it also doesn't stop Takumi from feeling the least bit upset about him, and in this case seems to think Kusaka was actually right for once to call him out on this because of the HiddenHeartOfGold-hiding facade he used to isolate others, making him appear hollow to everyone.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: No matter the continuity, he never completely gets away with what he does. Sooner or later, his luck finally runs out. Even in Series/KamenRiderZiO, where he apparently isn't as bad as usual, [[spoiler: he comes dangerously close to getting his neck snapped again.]]
* KarmicDeath: In the ''Faiz'' novel, [[spoiler:his stalkerish behavior towards and rape of Mari gets paid back by Kiba literally ripping him limb-from-limb and his getting "taken in" by his own StalkerWithACrush, [[SparedByTheAdaptation Saya Kimura]], very much in the fashion of ''Literature/{{Misery}}''.]]
** Also applies in the series proper: [[spoiler: Throughout most of the show, he'd been sabotaging the potential friendship of Takumi and Kiba, and subsequently, any chance of a united front against Smart Brain, just for his own ends, also torturing both about their supposed [[{{Hypocrite}} inherent inhumanity]]. He's murdered by Kiba, who had finally snapped at this point and joined Smart Brain, all of which is largely his fault. And Kiba does the deed with Kusaka's own Kaixa Gear, which Kiba had recently taken from him. Moreover, he dies alone, the others nearby looking for him, missing him by a few meters, and him unable to get their attention as he fades away like the wretch he was in life.]]
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: His unhinged obsession towards Mari is the main reason why he wants to get rid of everyone who is close to her.
* ManipulativeBastard: Good lord, he for a time had everyone around his thumb. [[spoiler:Even at his death, Keitaro and Mari didn't completely understand how much of a bastard he was.]]
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: He gets dealt this in his in-series death before being left to die the pathetic death he at that point ''greatly deserved.'']]
* NominalHero: Kusaka isn't a hero or even anti-hero, but is closer to a villain who just happens to be fighting the threat the heroes are also fighting. And even then, he takes it WAY further than the heroes do, out of simple hatred, by classifying every Orphnoch he sees, and anybody who gets in his way to a lesser extent, as so evil they only deserve the worst.
* OedipusComplex: He once said to Takumi that Mari could become his mother. [[spoiler:He even later grows to hate his step father.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: [[spoiler:Sees Takumi mainly as this.]]
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Gave Takumi the Axel Watch for absolutely no reason stated, though it's likely that he didn't care either.
* PowerFist: Kaixa Shot.
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler:His death in ''Film/HeiseiRiderVsShowaRiderKamenRiderWarsFeaturingSuperSentai'' is shown to have happened when Takumi was present.]]
* ReverseGrip: Wields the Kaixa Blaygun this way. Justified, as the blade is uni-directional and the gun barrel is away from the traditional sword edge.
* SlasherSmile: [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v33/updatedude/KamenRiderFaiz/kusaka03.jpg Exhibit A]]
%%* SmugSnake
* SwissArmyWeapon: Kaixa Blaygun.
* TheSociopath: He cares little for anyone's feelings. He states battle is nothing but a test to him.
* TheSpock: He's a cold and sociopathic pragmatist.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Condescending towards Takumi, though he's charismatic enough to keep his true nature eclipsed from Mari and Keitaro.
* TokenEvilTeammate: He might be fighting against the Orphnoch, but he is a complete bastard with his attempts to taking Takumi's place in Mari's heart, or really ANYONE'S place in Mari's heart.
* TransformingMecha: Side Basshar.
* TheUnfettered: His only two goals are to protect and be with Mari and to stop the Orphnoch and Smart Brain. He'll only consider giving one of these up if he sees them as having become mutually exclusive, such as [[spoiler:when he has to choose between giving the belts to Smart Brain or not reviving Mari; he chooses the latter since he has no guarantee Smart Brain will keep their word.]]
* {{Yandere}}: He gets violently jealous of anyone close to Mari.

* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: The Delta Gear has its own Delta symbol on it.
* TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: [[spoiler:After getting the Delta gear, Smart Brain starts tracking his movements to get the belt back.]]
* CharacterTic: All his Rider Kicks are Bicycle Kicks.
* FinishingMove: ''Lucifer's Hammer''
* FriendToAllChildren: Having been an orphan once, he and Rina work at an orphanage, wanting to care for the children with no parents.
* {{Handguns}}: Delta Blaster.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Which is why he is the perfect user for the Delta belt: he is one of the few that it's power ''didn't'' corrupt.
* KilledOffScreen: [[spoiler:He doesn't show up in TheMovie for this reason. The explanation comes in the prequel story ''Lost World'' (from S.I.C. Hero Saga), where Kusaka throws him to the Rose Orphnoch because he's (wrongly) convinced that Mihara was putting the moves on Mari.]]

* AllUpToYou: At the end of ''Paradise Lost'' [[spoiler:a dying Yuji entrusts Takumi to fulfill his dream of peace between humans and Orphnochs.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Yuka's death apparently at the hands of human police sends him over the edge and causes him to [[FaceHeelTurn abandon his ideals]]. In [[TheMovie Paradise Lost]], this also happens when Murakami and Smart Lady trick Kiba into thinking Mari betrayed him in order to turn him against humanity so he can become Kamen Rider Orga.]]
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Yuji is the secondary protagonist of the series, with almost enough focus and CharacterDevelopment as Takumi and even became Faiz as the main hero for a while. He's also the first main deuteragonist to not be a Secondary Rider (even though he ends up using two [[spoiler: three counting ''Paradise Lost'' rider gears]]).
* FallenHero: [[spoiler:By the end, he ends up as an AntiVillain after losing his humanity in Yuka's supposed death by the police and becoming the Chairman of Smart Brain.]]
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Because he's confused about whether he's more human or Orphnoch, whether protecting either side is just, or whether either side is just at all, not to mention [[{{Jerkass}} Kusaka mucking up any chance of him permanently becoming friends with Takumi]], he allies with the main characters as much as he goes against them.
* HenshinHero: Has briefly had time as both Faiz and Kaixa. Notably, he's the ''only'' non-protagonist in the history of the franchise, who has taken on the role of the protagonist Rider for more than two episodes (Yuji was Kamen Rider Faiz for ''four'' episodes). [[spoiler: Then there's him becoming Orga in the movie]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He does this less than Yuka, but he ends up killing a lot of villainous Orphnochs and characters [[spoiler:such as Kusaka]] who've murdered innocent people, played friends like chess, and were overall horrible people.
* OurCentaursAreDifferent: Yes, he's the ''Horse'' Orphnoch, but his powered-up form does resemble a centaur more than anything else.
* MightyGlacier: [[spoiler:As Orga, Kiba has the best defensive and offense output of all the five Rider gears and even Faiz Axel. He has more power than [[StoneWall Kaixa]], [[LightningBruiser more physical power and produces more Photon Blood than Psyga]], and [[JackOfAllTrades has more variety in his attack capabilities than Delta]]. It can also tank attacks from the Elasmotherium Orphnoch, the biggest and most dangerous, who killed Yuka, ate Kaidou, and smashed the Auto Vajin in one hit. The downside is that it is extremely slow, being unable to keep up with [[JackOfAllStats any of Faiz's forms]], it's much slower than Kaixa and it's powerful armor is more weighted than the rest.]]
* NiceGuy: Yuji is a nice character that wants to protect humans and help Takumi in spite of his horrendous backstory. The only problem is that Kusaka has a nasty habit of tricking Yuji in fighting Faiz.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:After abandoning his ideals and performing a FaceHeelTurn, Kiba comes back around and sacrifices himself by holding down the Arch Orphonoch in the FinalBattle so Faiz can land the deciding Rider Kick, killing both Yuji and the Arch Orphonoch.]]
* TraumaCongaLine: Holy. The first episode alone, has him being getting into a car accident putting him in a coma for 2 years. Then dying and reviving as an Orphnoch. He then finds, one his parents are dead, two he's homeless as his uncle sold his house, and that his uncle is corrupt. Three his girlfriend moved on and is dating his cousin, and his cousin tells him this in the most jackass way possible. Then he finds out his girlfriend was a BitchInSheepsClothing the whole time, namely without knowing Yuji killed his cousin she sells him out to the police right in front of him just to save herself.

The first member of Lucky Clover to be sent out after Faiz, Mr. J is an Orphnoch with the power to regenerate himself after suffering fatal wounds, though it only works twice.
----
* BackFromTheDead: He can revive himself twice, meaning he has to be killed [[RuleOfThree three]] times in order to fully defeat him.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[spoiler:He's the first of the Lucky Clover to go down.]]
* TheBrute: He seems to be Murakami's go-to-guy for missions that require assassination and brute force.

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In the final episode he abandons Smart Brain's cause and instead starts a new life in human society as a construction worker.]]
* PoisonousPerson: In his Orphnoch form he's capable of emitting toxic substances that cause pain.
* SmugSnake: He seems like a competent villain at first and manages to lay down a CurbStompBattle to the heroes several times. Getting his ass kicked by Faiz's Axel Form takes him down a few pegs.

The Lucky Clover member who runs their bar and acts as something of a TeamMom to the other members.
----
* DarkChick: The [[TheSmurfettePrinciple only female]] member who runs the Lucky Clover's clover bar.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. When Kitazaki decided to kill Teruo in hopes of being the new king, Saeko and Takuma turn on him to protect their king, though she also did this out of the intent to survive.
* FauxAffablyEvil: She acts comforting to her victims, though its often while she's in the process of killing them.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Killed Yuka and thus set off Kiba's FaceHeelTurn, yet she managed to survive the end of the series, albeit insane and trapped in her Orphnoch form. Also, if one were to take ''Film/OOODenOAllRidersLetsGoKamenRiders'' into account, then it's [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] when Faiz [[KarmaHoudiniWarranty voids the Lobster Orphonoch's warranty]].]]
* OneLastSmoke: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by her. She always sends her targets a bottle of wine before she kills them.
* PetTheDog: Occasionally comforts Takuma from any of his distresses such as his conflicts with Kitazaki.
* PerpetualSmiler: Unless she's in battle or furious (the latter of which is extremely rare), she's always smiling. This isn't benevolent at all; it just shows how unhinged she is.

[[quoteright:200:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dragon_orphnoch_0.png]]
Lucky Clover's youngest member and the most ruthless Orphnoch to work for Smart Brain. Kitazaki is a socially-withdrawn teenager with one thing in mind: to have fun at the expense of others.
----
* AmbiguousDisorder: Aside from his obvious sociopathy, Kitazaki's mannerisms suggest he may have an autism spectrum disorder.
* AxCrazy: Kitazaki is clearly the most unhinged Orphnoch among Smart Brain's elite.
* BigBadWannabe: Kitazaki really, really wants to be the strongest Orphnoch, but unfortunately for him, he is nowhere near as dangerous as the Arch-Orphnoch when it awakens, [[spoiler:and his unwillingness to accept this is what gets him killed in the end]].
* BloodKnight: Kitazaki likes a good fight just as he likes killing, considering "fighting" and "playing" to be the same thing.
* TheBully: What he really is at his core, an obnoxious, disrespectful teenager who torments everyone around him and still thinks he is the best.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler:His face is ripped off and devoured by the Arch-Orphnoch]]. Not that he didn't deserve it.
* DragonInChief: He is both stronger and faster than Murakami, but works under him solely to have his fun.
* {{Expy}}: From being a BigBadWannabe with BloodKnight tendencies and having the personality of a SerialKiller, Kitazaki is very, VERY similar to [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Asakura]] from the previous season.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: The only person to show respect for him is Saeko Kageyama, and that's because she's the TeamMom; said respect is gone in the last episodes and she conspires with Takuma to betray him.
* GoodHairEvilHair: His hair is always messy and unkempt, and so are his signature clothes, reflecting on how he ignores his own appearance to give more importance to things he considers to be fun.
* HateSink: Not to the same level as Kusaka, but from his arrogant attitude to his treatment of Takuma, it's hard not to hate him.
* {{Jerkass}}: Aside from his love of violence, he displays an extreme amount of arrogance and disregard for others.
* LackOfEmpathy: As far as he's concerned, other people are nothing more than toys to be broken and thrown away.
* {{Narcissist}}: Thinks he is better than his king, and tries to kill him just to prove it. [[CruelAndUnusualDeath He soon learns that trying it wasn't a good idea.]]
* PsychoForHire: It's pretty clear that he is just following Murakami's orders to satisfy his boredom.
* SerialKiller: All Orphnochs working for Smart Brain qualify to a degree, but Kitazaki comes the closest to being the most accurate depiction of one in the series.
* SoftSpokenSadist: He rarely raises his voice, and it's hard for him not to smile or laugh while killing someone.
* TheSociopath: What Kusaka has in charisma, Kitazaki has in cruelty. Unlike Kusaka, Kitazaki makes no attempt to hide this, and shows that he's a heartless person even if he's not in battle.
* TeensAreMonsters: The worst Lucky Clover has to offer, and not even an adult.

* CanonImmigrant: Created for a NonSerialMovie but ended up being incorporated in the series itself.

A character exclusive to the movie adaptation. Leo is a powerful, but arrogant Rider that acts as the leader of the Riotroopers.
----
* BloodKnight: Battle is just a "game" for him to win.
* DragonInChief: To Murakami, considering Murakami is a [[BrainInAJar head in a jar]] and can't really do much he relies on Leo to be his enforcer.
* DualWielding: Psyga uses dual tonfas called the Psyga Tonfa Edge, which are also [[LaserBlade Laser Blades]]. He also uses the Flying Attacker's Blaster Rifles, which are the two engines of the Flying Attacker that are converted laser cannons in Blaster Rifle Mode.
* {{Expy}}: Leo is basically a much more mature Kitazaki.
* FinishingMove:
** ''Psyga Slash'': Psyga inserts the Mission Memory into his Tonfa Edge and performs an energy-charged slash. The only finisher Psyga actually uses in ''Paradise Lost''.
** [[AllThereInTheManual Side materials]] revealed that Psyga has his own versions of the [[DivingKick Rider Kick]] and [[MegatonPunch Rider Punch]], named ''Cobalt Smash'' and ''Sky Impact'' respectively, which use the Flying Attacker to enhance their power.
* GlassCannon: Psyga's got strength that matches the main Riders and has good combat experience, also mentioning that he has incredible speed from his Flying Attacker. But, simply damaging it will leave him without his flight capabilities, which helped his evasiveness, and leaves him with just his Psyga Phone and Psyga Tonga Edge in his arsenal.

* TheHeavy: The one who spearheads the Orphnochs' hunt of the remaining humans.
* HeroKiller: Murdered Kusaka, reducing him to dust.
