Into the year of 2017, along with protecting the citizens of Neo Tokyo from crime and evil, so have these unordinary people found that the root of it all lies deep within Bernard.

* Ikki Tachibana AKA Brider: Former {{Delinquent}} turned into soldier to serve Ohga, but defects and forms a group of fellow brethren to fight in the name of '''[[ForGreatJustice JUSTICE]]'''. Heavily draws inspiration of ''KamenRider'' in how he fights. Voiced by Masami Obari. (Yeah, the guy who designed them all.)

* RuleOfCool: ''Brider''. He's basically the lovechild of ''KamenRider'' and ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'', with extra spice of passion of [[ForGreatJustice justice]] that would make [[VideoGame/FatalFury Kim Kaphwan]] proud. And his desperation move is RAMMING YOUR ENEMY WITH A RIDER BIKE.

* PlayingAgainstType: For starters, Hellstinger is a far cry of Creator/HikaruMidorikawa's cold roles. Likewise, Shaia is more ditz and less CoolBigSis than most of Creator/YumiTouma's roles.


* {{Fanservice}}: Of course, this is Masami Obari we're talking about. Karin and Shaia are both [[FetishFuelStationAttendant High Octane Fetish Fuels]].
