Kamen Rider Amazon New Omega

  • Artificial Human: The third type Amazon.
  • Anti-Hero: A rather downplayed example starting from Season 2. While he still retain some of his heroic traits, Haruka goes into great lengths to stop Chihiro from meeting up with an already unstable Jin. It doesn't work.
  • The Berserker: Tends to let his Amazon side take the reins when he's in battle. It shows. It's also his fighting style in contrast to Jin's martial arts style and Chihiro's self taught brawler style.
  • Berserk Button: Do not: Harm his family, friends, allies, and innocents whether they're human or Amazon. Results will get messy.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Haruka's a nice, gentle person. But of the three Amazon Riders, he's absolutely brutal and vicious in combat.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He acts like a surrogate big brother to Mamoru even though Haruka couldn't be any older than him. In the final episode of S1, he convinces Mamoru to join him in abandoning human civilization and contact to live peacefully, and even saves him when he's badly injured in S2, despite now being enemies. He also shows this to Mizuki after becoming an Amazon, such as rushing to her aid when an Amazon is after her. In fact, she's probably one of the person Haruka cares about the most. Even after he decided to turn his back on humanity, Haruka still cares for her. When they finally meet again in season 2, even when Mizuki tries to kill him, Haruka doesn't hold it against her and still treats her kindly.
  • Big Eater: He has to. Episode 11 actually shows him scarfing down his meal after he completely healed.
  • Blood Knight: Every time Haruka joins a fight, his inner Amazon becomes engrossed in it. He ends up having an epic but disturbing Slasher Smile as a result.
  • Break the Cutie: He ends up having this to him after slaughtering an enemy. It only gets worse from then on.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Mamoru, who looks down on him for being satisfied with just protecting Amazons.
  • But Now I Must Go: He, alongside Mamoru and other Amazons, went on to go live in peace outside human contact. Unfortunately, it was rather short lived.
  • Byronic Hero: Jin sees Haruka as this; seeing his moral compass as flexible based on who he likes and doesn't. This cultivates in him having to restrain Haruka when the latter attempts to murder the serial killer in Episode 8.
  • Cain and Abel: What befell the relationship between him and Mizuki. Haruka still cares for her, though and as Rambling Roses shows, he still watches over her from the shadows when he can.
  • Cannibalism: Is forced to eat a dying Muku (Though she spurred him to do so) near the end of Last Judgement to survive the mortal wounds inflicted on him by Neo Alpha and Jin. He attempts to drown himself in a lake out of penance, but an illusion of Mizuki talks him out of it.
  • Character Development: In Season 1 he was meek and unsure, after the Time Skip he's become far more confident and stoic.
  • Cool Bike: The Junglaider, a much more sleeker version of the Jungler. It even adjusts to Haruka's Amazons Cells to make him able to ride it easier, as Haruka doesn't know how to ride a motorcycle normally.
  • Confusion Fu: Which is combined with his berserker-type fighting tendencies.
  • "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: By Episode 12 of second season, he painfully aware that he is mostly responsible for the event of season 2 as he was the one who helped Nanaha and Chihiro escape Jin.
  • Curbstomp Battle: In his first fight, he bites the Bat Amazon, tore its wings off, and literally stepped its face in with a very gory Rider Kick.
  • Deconstructed Character Archetype: Of your usual Kamen Rider protagonist. Most mainline Rider protagonist, including the original Amazon have a very clear view of good and evil. Others develop complexity but still retain their views on good and evil. Haruka has a very complicated and gray motives when it comes to being a human and Amazon. While he will protect humans, he won't kill a single one. But when an innocent Amazon under him starts attacking people, he has to end them. And despite this, he tries so damn hard to make a world where humans and Amazons can live together in peace, but he will have to off an Amazon if he has to.
  • Diving Save: He saves Mizuki this way in Yellow Brick Road just before some of Chihiro's tentacles kill her.
  • Doomed Moral Victor: Though the misfortunes pile up, Haruka nevertheless insists on trying to find a way for both humans and Amazons to live together in harmony, a scenario where neither side has to hunt the other into extinction. However, extremists of both species capsize whatever solutions he attempts to implement.
  • Dynamic Entry: He makes his first appearance in his complete form by slamming into an Amazon from a very long jump.
  • Finishing Move:
    • Violent Punish: A powerful slash capable of bisecting an enemy in one swipe.
    • Violent Break: He has three variations using the Battler Grip. In its spear mode Haruka impales the opponent by throwing it, grabs the opponent and pull them into a slash with his arm blades in whip mode or brings it down like a pickaxe in scythe mode to finish Amazons off.
    • Violent Strike: Omega's Rider Kick, a leaping kick resulting in the target being slashed by the blades on the back of his calfs. Least used finisher, similar to the original Amazon.
  • Good Is Not Soft: By the time he meets and faces Chihiro, most of his fights were one-sided and non-lethal (at least the way he does non-lethal). This is because he knows who his parents are.
  • Genetic Engineering Is the New Nuke: He is the result of his mother's and Amazon cells.
  • Gilded Cage: Haruka originally lived in one, which he akins to an aquarium.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: What some of his Finishing Moves do to their target.
  • Healing Factor: Haruka has a much better one than any other Amazon, enough so that he's even capable of surviving having a hole punched through his chest. It's best showcased in his fight with Jin between seasons, which ended in both combatants inflicting deep injuries on the other, but Haruka recovers with no lasting damage while Jin doesn't regain his sight until much later.
  • The Hero: Haruka is technically the titular main character of the entire series as he is easily the most heroic among the Amazon Riders. While Chihiro is the viewpoint main character in the 1st half of season 2, Haruka still holds this position from time to time.
  • Hero Antagonist: When he finally appears in Orphans, he transforms after seeing Iyu and intends to Mercy Kill her until he clash blades with Chihiro. Rambling Roses reveals that while he'll help kill the new Amazons but he'll still protect Mamoru's group.
  • Hulking Out: While both him and Mamoru do this, it's much more pronounced with him, as he goes from a gentle person to The Berserker in a constant state of Unstoppable Rage.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Like Jin. The only difference is that Jin wants all Amazons dead. Haruka wants unawakened ones to stay alive, but will kill any one of them that is on the verge of eating a human.
    • It's this reluctance to unambiguously hunt all Amazons that puts him and Jin (and later on him and Captain Shido) at odds. It manifests during Operation Tlaloc.
  • Ill Boy: Believed that was was this before it's revealed that his medication is actually given to him to delay his transformation into an Amazon, but only worked so long as he didn't fully 'awaken,' at which point it became useless.
  • In a Single Bound: As Amazon Omega, he reaches the site of the battle in "BEAST INSIDE" this way, jumping across entire city blocks at once.
  • Irony: Haruka turns his back on humanity, but the humans of the Nozama Pest Control are the only people who have never tried to use him or stabbed him in the back, a fact he acknowledges when he goes to them for help in season 2. Even if Fukada decides to stay with 4C he tells it too him to his face and stabs him in the front.
  • It's All My Fault: He blames himself for the new Amazons being born as he was away when the rest of his group put the plan into motion.
  • Mercy Kill: What he will do to Amazons that awaken.
    • He fully intends to do this to Iyu since he was friends with her and her family. When he discovered her father killed everyone save Kurosaki, he didn't hesitate until he sees Iyu pleading until she passed on.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: Gets a new Amazon Driver similar to Chihiro's around the halfway point of Season 2, becoming Amazon New Omega. However, he lost access to the form when Neo Alpha destroyed it in The Last Judgement.
  • One Of These Is Not Like The Others: Notice when he first showed up in episode 2, he only attacks the Bat Amazon and Jin, but not any members of the Extermination team despite Amazons wanting to eat human flesh. This may have to do with him being designed to be a Hunter of His Own Kind.
  • Only Friend: At the start of the series, he was only close to Mizuki due to his confinement, this changes when he goes outside.
  • Only Sane Man: Out of the Riders in Season 2, Haruka is the most well put together.
  • Our Hero Is Dead: Was seemingly killed by Amazon Sigma during Episode 10 of the first season. However, he gets better in the next episode after he was sent to the Nozama Pharmacy by feeding him some meat to revitalize his condition.
  • Protagonist Journey to Villain: Played With. He went from The Hero to Hero Antagonist over the course of the Time Skip. But Rambling Roses shows he hasn't changed in the least, just now he doesn't have a direct connection to humanity. Turns out that he's too busy trying to stop Jin from going after Chihiro, hence why he blinded Jin in their recent fight.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: "AMAZONS" first shows this when he changes to Omega.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: After character development and as series progress in Season 2, the contrast shown that Haruka is the manly to Chihiro sensitive guy. Emphasized by Haruka main objectives and interest to get rid Amazons in less reckless manner. Also Haruka combat style is more tactical and much efficiently cool-headed.
  • Shoot the Dog: Him killing Chihiro at the end of season 2, knowing that Chihiro is too dangerous to live. He's pretty disgusted with himself afterwords, wanting Mizuki to kill him.
  • Sixth Ranger: Becomes part of NPS to help them hunt down awakened Amazons.
  • Slasher Smile: A rare heroic Kamen Rider example. He puts one on in episode 6. In episode 13, he's practically grinning as he faces off a burned Jin.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Initially his Origin form acts like a violent berserker on its first appearance, but Haruka takes ontrol of himself unless he's very angry. Even at his Rage Breaking Point in control of himself.
  • Super Prototype: A biological version. He's revealed to be a third type Amazon.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The right handle of the Amazon Driver can be pulled out for it to turn into various different weapons, like a spear or a whip.
  • Sword over Head: Even on one occasion between the seasons where Haruka had Jin at his mercy, he couldn't bring himself to kill Jin.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: While he's fine working with the Extermination team, it's Jin he worries about, though they'll have to fight together against dangerous Amazons.
    • Finds himself in this position with Jin when they realized Chihiro too dangerous to live as he is the last source of the lysogeneic cells. Since they both live, it leaves Chihiro's fate unambiguous.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Didn't know he was an Amazon until he became Omega for the first time.
  • Took a Level in Badass: His fighting style becomes much more refined and strategic by the end of the first season.
    • He takes another in Season 2, his posture is no longer animalistic, being composed like Jin's was, and despite Chihiro having a superior belt he can still casually manhandle him, even when Chihiro goes full Determinator. He's pretty much inherited Jin's Showy Invincible Hero status of early season 1.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: While he'll eat anything with high protein, he appears to eat hamburgers more, as he shows Mizuki a cheeseburger stashed in his jacket.
  • Trauma Conga Line: By the end of the first season, this Cutie isn't just broken, he's been warped beyond anything resembling what he started as.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Pretty much his default state when he's Amazon Omega. Justified, as he implies Omega is a representation of his repressed anger and rage at being stuck in a Gilded Cage his entire life.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: He has this problem in episodes 2 and 3. After being told that he is an Amazon by Jin, he questions whether or not if he would ever consider himself a human being. It took Nanaha and his mother to tell him to decide if he considers his inner Amazon a human. Jin however doesn't care, since he considers Haruka being alive to be an important factor rather than questioning his existence as a human or Amazon.
    • He actually has a very personal view of this. When he met a restaurant full of unawakened Amazons, they wanted to live normal lives and hold off their awakened selves. Of course Shido gives him a massive What the Hell, Hero? look at him when he lets them go. But No Good Deed Goes Unpunished as they die anyway when his mother deploys Tlaloc on them, killing them all. However, he does not count awakened Amazons, since they'll feed on humans.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Jin calls him out after holding an Amazon dead-to-rights, hesitating after he pleads, and allowing him to escape, knowing full-well that women are being murdered.
    • He also calls him out on wanting to murder the very-Human serial killer that tortured Takai and Mamoru.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: By this show's standards, anyway. Haruka is just about the only character who believes peace between humans and Amazons is an achievable ideal in the face of both sides continuing to kill one another, especially with Mamoru becoming far more jaded by Season 2.
  • Wild Card: In season 2, no one is sure of his goals and what he has been during between the Time Skip. The answer is stopping Jin and Chihiro from seeing each other.
  • Worf Effect: After spending Season 2 as a Showy Invincible Hero and even changing into New Omega, Haruka is manhandled to show how dangerous Nanaha is as the Jellyfish Amazon.
    • Continues in Last Judgement. He can barely hold his own against the two Amazons that attempt to attack the farm early on in the film and is utterly routed by Neo Alpha to demonstrate what a threat he is..
  • Younger Than They Look: Looks like a full grown human, but is only two years old. Lampshaded when he realizes he doesn't have any memories from before then.

     Jin Takayama/Kamen Rider Amazon Alpha 

Portrayed by: Masashi Taniguchi, Hirokazu Iwakami (Suit actor)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jin.png
Jin (above), Kamen Rider Amazon Alpha (below)

  • Aloof Ally: Whenever he shows up in a fight with the Monster of the Week. Especially around Haruka.
  • Anti-Hero: Regardless of his resolve to protect humanity, even if they're good or bad, he only fight for his own agendas whatsoever.
  • Archnemesis Dad: While their exact relationship is unknown, Chihiro went to great lengths to hide that Jin is his father and his reaction to seeing him again is far from pleased.
  • The Atoner: He blames himself for the original Amazon outbreak, so much so that he turned himself into an Amazon and completed development of two belts to hunt them down.
  • Badass Biker: He has a normal motorcycle. Doesn't hurt his badass look.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Viewers are led to believe Jin lost an arm and regrew it during the Time Skip and it matches Chihiro's blood. He didn't. The arm belonged to Nanaha, who was killed by 4C.
  • Barefisted Monk: While Haruka occasionally uses his belt's weapons, Jin prefers to fight barehanded with only his ridged gauntlets for added offense.
  • Big Eater: Deconstructed. He needs to eat meals with high protein, hence his chicken coop in his apartment.
  • Boomerang Bigot: He wants every single Amazon dead, including himself.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Subverted from season 2 onward. His blindness has made him a weaker, more wild fighter. Despite this handicap, he is still an unchecked threat to nearly everyone he encounters and can slaughter most Amazons with ease. Against Omega and Neo however, he doesn't stack up anymore. note 
  • Byronic Hero: He can be an ass, but he does have benign reasons for killing the Monster of the Week. While he begrudgingly fights with Haruka and the extermination team, he does it only for his and Nanaha's sakes.
  • Curbstomp Battle: His first fight with the second Spider Amazon. It's quick and brutal, with him manhandling it before ripping its heart out.
  • Covered with Scars: All those green marks you see on him as Alpha? All of them are scars from past battles that unlike Haruka's do not seemed to have healed.
  • Create Your Own Hero: Took Haruka back to his home in Episode 2 in hopes of gaining a powerful accomplice and wound up with an insufferable rival instead.
  • Cruel Mercy: How Jin sees that fact that he's still alive at the end of Season 2.
  • Death Seeker: Last Judgement reveals he desires death after everything and the knowledge that he'll just create more Amazons.
  • Deconstruction: Of the Reluctant Mad Scientist archetype of the Kamen Rider franchise who goes rogue in an attempt to atone for the mayhem his experiments have caused. Jin shows that guilt of such magnitude married with the kind of mentality that would have allowed him to create creatures like the Amazons in the first place might not result in the most heroic (or even stable) character.
  • Defector from Decadence: It's revealed that he willingly put the Amazon cells in himself to destroy the experiments.
  • Determinator: He simply will not give up. In his second fight with Amazon Sigma, Sigma asks him at one point how he's still standing, to which Jin replies that it's because he doesn't want to fall over. In the final episode, he says that he'll keep coming after Haruka and the Tlaloc survivors until they're all dead. Even being blinded during the time skip between seasons barely slows him down.
    • In Season 2, he'll not stop at killing Chihiro, even after being blinded by Haruka in their recent fight.
  • Dramatic Irony: In season 2, his on-going crusade damages his relationship with Nanaha, the latter running away from him due to his one-track mindset of eliminating every Amazon he finds, him acting more monstrous than the Amazons he's created. It heavily affects his close relationships with just about everyone. This includes Nanaha, who was pregnant with Chihiro. Haruka attempts to reason with him, but he refuses, causing Omega to blind him in the ensuing fight; forcing him into a four-year wandering of the world trying to find them. The self-destruction leads to Nanaha's death and Chihiro being taken by the humans who experimented on him, thus leading to the events of the second season.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The first things he does before he fights is crack open an egg with his belt and eats it raw. Then transforms in front of those involved.
  • Eye Scream: His recent fight with Haruka (as Amazon Omega) ends badly for him when the latter cleaves off his eyes to stop his attempted killing of Chihiro.
  • Facial Horror: Episode 13 shows that at least the left side of his face and neck have become hideously scarred. It's unclear if this is because of his Amazon cells degenerating him, accumulated scars from his cannibalistic "hunts", or if they're chemical burns from Operation Tlaloc. By the time season 2 rolls around, the scars have completely healed.
  • Fate Worse than Death: How Jin sees being alive at the end of Season 2. Considering he just murdered his family to keep humanity alive and has no one left, he's depressingly correct.
  • Finishing Move: Violent Slash, similar to Haruka's Violent Punish.
  • Foil: While they are both Kamen Riders they are the exact opposite in personality and color. This is even represented in their suits, they both have a red and green motif but while Jin's is majority red with green stripes, Haruka is majority green with red stripes. In terms of personality while Jin will kill all Amazons and save every human, Haruka believes in a saving those that are innocent, meaning he'll happily kill murderers but protect unawakened Amazons like Mamoru. Jin is a human who injected himself with Amazon cells, while Haruka is an Amazon altered to possess human DNA.
  • Genocide from the Inside: Outright admits that this is his goal. Given the rest of his species are a race of man-eating monsters that, once they lose control are impossible to reason with or talk down, this is more understandable and less evil than most examples.
    • Episode 6 reveals why: He was against the idea of sending out the Amazons after 2 years.
  • Go Out with a Smile: His final moments are him smiling at seeing Nanaha again before his dead body is shown alone, implying it to be either a Dying Dream or being Together in Death with his family.
  • Handicapped Badass: Spends season 2 blinded from a fight with Haruka. By the time of Final Chapter, his eyes have recovered.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He's a human who injected Amazon cells into himself. He's categorized as a second type Amazon.
  • Healing Factor: He has one, but it's much weaker than Haruka's. Jin typically takes months or years to recover from injuries that take Haruka hours, but he will eventually recover from them.
  • He’s Back: Finally make his return in the final scene of season 2's episode 6.
  • Hero Antagonist: For a certain definition of "hero" anyway. Post-Sanity Slippage, he seems to have deluded himself into thinking he's protecting humanity by murdering every single Amazons he can find despite the fact that the Amazons have retreated into exile and want nothing to do with human society anymore, though his action is pretty justified as episode 8 of second season shows that some Amazons are still attacking humans despite their exile. This gets turned Up to Eleven in season 2 when he tries to kill Chihiro, his own son to stop the spread of the new Amazons.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Well some kind of self deprecation, but he agrees with Nagase that he's a piece of shit in Xing the Rubicon as he tries to kill his own son.
  • Hidden Depths: For an alcoholic, protein-eating Amazon Rider, he excels in cell biology.
    • He seems to act like a dick to Haruka, but he seems to mean well. Haruka obviously does not reciprocate.note 
    • He considers killing Amazons as an act of Mercy Killing because he cares.
    • Even after his Sanity Slippage in episode 13, it's implied by his tearful conversation with Nanaha that he wants a normal life.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Is an Amazon himself despite hunting other Amazons. The finale shows him eating Amazon remains to sustain himself.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Finally dies in The Last Judgement when Haruka impales him through the stomach with his arm.
  • Invincible Hero: Up until his fight with the newly-revived Jun Maehara, Kamen Rider Amazon Sigma.
  • It's All My Fault: Xing the Rubicon reveals that Jin doesn't blame Chihiro but instead himself for everything that is happening.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he can be a dick, he willingly feeds Haruka at every chance he gets. Even saving him from certain death.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • The reason why he clashes with Reika is because Reika intends to release the Amazons after two years, but Jin was highly against it. Considering the 4,000 Amazons have awakened and began eating people, he definitely has a point.
    • His point of conflict with Haruka, while Haruka is against murdering Amazons that haven't harmed humans yet or at least want to stay sane as long as possible, he has a point that it's inevitable that all Amazons are going to awaken and Haruka's ideals will just result in a lot of innocent people being eaten.
    • If everyone had chosen to kill Chihiro prior to Season 2 like he wanted them to, none of the season's events would've happened. But, they spare the child. This creates the Aroma Ozone pandemic plaguing Japan in Season 2.
  • Kill the Ones You Love:
    • Episode 12 reveals he's doing this to the Amazons. He actually likes them due to the amount of work he invested to make them. But he doesn't believe it's right for humanity to be eaten to ensure their survival therefore the least he can do is kill them himself.
    • Yellow Brick Road has him realizing that Nanaha is not only alive but an Amazon and he resolves to kill her himself. The episode ends with Nanaha finding him as they stare at each other. He does the deed in Amazonznote  to Mercy Kill her
  • The Last Dance: With Tlaloc seemingly poised to wipe out most of the Amazons (including himself), Jin elects to spend his last moments defending the Nozama Pharmacy headquarters from a hoard of newly awakened Amazons.
  • Laughing Mad: From Episode 12 onward.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He's Chihiro's father.
  • Made of Iron: The injuries he sustains in season 2 is outright ridiculous. From a point-blank shotgun to the head to being impaled, and he still hasn't kicked the bucket. His determination stops him from doing so.
  • Mercy Kill: Offers to simply kill Haruka for this reason, because if he does, then Haruka will never transform into an Amazon and eat anyone, dying without blood on his hands. Haruka turns him down, instead joining the fight.
    • His philosophy toward his anti-Amazon crusade in general.
  • Mythology Gag: While Alpha and Omega both have similar appearances to him in their incomplete forms, Jin's full suit more closely resembles the original Kamen Rider Amazon.
  • Never My Fault: After encountering Iyu and checking her face, he realizes she's an Amazon Sigma and pins the blame on his son. Yet he was the one who got Iyu's father infected with Chihiro's blood, which caused several incidents happening. Subverted when he admits that he actually blames himself for them rather than Chihiro.
  • Offing the Offspring: While he'll protect Chihiro as Nanaha wants him to, he'll willingly kill him if he ever loses his humanity as he tells him when he tells Chihiro he reeks of blood.
  • Rated M for Manly: He chugs raw eggs from a beer jug, doesn't seem to care about personal looks or hygiene, and even "prepares" food by himself. To make it even better, his transformed self is called Amazon Alpha.
  • Piranha Problem: Despite looking the most like the main universe Amazon, Jin is actually a Piranha Amazon.
  • Prophet Eyes: Has these in season 2 due to going blind from his and Haruka's recent fight in the intervening 5 years. This is even reflected in his Amazon form's eyes also going white.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Two years worth of bloodlust, guilt, and hard living turned him from a respectable scientist to a ditzy vigilante to a deranged psychopath. To emphasize this, Nanaha alternates between being his lover and his nanny for much of their relationship.
  • Sanity Slippage: He becomes very unhinged near the end of 12. In 13, he ate an Amazon's heart.
    • Episode 13 also shows that his personality has deteriorated from calm and smug to practically being a wild animal, howling like a beast and going Laughing Mad during combat.
    • By the time Season 2 roll around, Jin's mind is finally reduced to a rabid serial killer that needs to be put down. Haruka is not pleased at the outcome. The major trigger is when Nanaha is pregnant with his child, who would be the first half-breed Amazon. By the time Nanaha gave birth to Chihiro, they left him. Haruka then blinds him, setting him off to Walking the Earth to find them both.
  • Science Hero: A rare straightforward occasion where the creator of the Kamen Rider belt is one of its principle protagonists.
  • Smug Super: Big time. He casually walks into his first fight, gives a smug smirk, and then after transforming takes a few moments to casually point between the present monsters (you can easily imagine him thinking "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe...") before annihilating Spider Amazon.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: As much as he often teases Haruka, and tend to act like a giant dick to him, he does care about Haruka in his own weird way. They both fight efficiently together as much as they do against each other. With the NPS, as much as they don't like him, they do back him up when he needs help and vice-versa.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Subverted. His stats show that his offensive power has modestly increased between the two seasons (Haruka needs to upgrade to New Omega to ultimately exceed him in that department), but he's deteriorated in every other respect both physically and mentally.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Eggs
    • Episode 13 shows that it's shifted to other Amazons.
  • Trickster Mentor: Seems to act like this to Haruka.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The entirety of season 2 was in fact his fault. Rather than being happy that Nanaha is pregnant, he was utterly shocked when he found out. Those involved which includes Haruka, Nanaha, and Iyu's father chose to help Nanaha escape from him. When he sees Iyu's father, he lashes at him, to the point of being infected by Chihiro's blood. He then faces off against Haruka, who begs him to end his crusade against the Amazons, but the latter is put in a position where he blinds him. Had he listened at all, Nanaha wouldn't be infected, and her parts being used to create more Amazons.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He used to be a Nice Guy, but when his crusade against the Amazons pierces through his sanity, that's all he cares about. Iyu's father was even horrified by what he has become.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Hurt? Like he would rather kill a child, just as what he planned to do on his own son.

Chihiro
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amazonneos_4.png
Kamen Rider Amazon Neo

  • Abusive Parents: Nothing more abusive than a dad that is obsessed with killing you.
  • Adorkable: His attempts at trying to help Iyu be human again can be a bit amusing.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: He's the protagonist in the first half of season 2 before Haruka took over the spot during the 2nd half.
  • Battle Couple: Though, they're not exactly a couple yet, he and Iyu make a pretty amazing team. Thanks to Chihiro, Iyu has finally started using strategy in her fights.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Chihiro has spent all of season 2 wanting Iyu to regain her humanity. He gets his wish in Yellow Brick Road, with Iyu having a Freak Out! as the realization of her death hits her.
  • Being Good Sucks: You can tell Chihiro was thinking this in Yellow Brick Road as he can't leave 4C to their fates against a new Amazon despite the fact they're hunting him.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Never call him an Amazon or touch him.
    • Don't ever hurt Iyu in front of him.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: One of his weapons is a blade that appears from and is attached to his right arm.
  • Boomerang Bigot: He hates every single Amazon despite being one himself.
  • Break the Cutie: He has it worse as a child when he ate and turned his mother into an Amazon, then was taken by 4C scientists to experiment on him, then finds out he was responsible to what happened to his mother, and then slaughtered 4C's workers, and finds out from Jin that Nanaha tells him should he ever loses his humanity, then Jin has to kill him. And this kid goes through a lot of shit in the course of Season 2.

While Haruka was a human and Amazon hybrid since birth, Chihiro was kidnapped and raised by an Amazon which caused him to transform into one The Third Degree reveals that they are both half human hybrids but while Haruka is an experiment, Chihiro was born naturally.. They were both then raised in isolation but while Haruka actually enjoyed it till he finally left, Chihiro escaped.

  • Foreshadowing: His Amazon form looks like a blue version of Jin's Amazon and he transforms with red energy just like Jin. Haruka tells Mizuki to be weary around Chihiro. Knowing Haruka, he wouldn't warn those closest to be careful without a reason. Because he knows Chihiro is Jin's son.
  • Freak Out!: Has a huge one in Vanishing Wings when he realizes the destruction he caused.

  • Patient Zero: Under Wraps reveals he's one of the sources for the Lysogenic cells.

  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: As series progress and closer introduction in Season 2, the contrast shown that Chihiro is the sensitive to Haruka Manly Man. Emphasized by Chihiro main objectives and interest to get along with his fellow Amazons(in case Iyu) in more friendly manner and having such intimate bonds.

  • Spin-Offspring: Turns out he's Jin and Nanaha's son.

  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Unlike Haruka, his Origin form is very violent, attacking anyone indiscriminately. Whereas Haruka is in control at even his most violent point, Chihiro does not, and his Origin form only shows up at his most emotional boiling point.
  • Supporting Protagonist: While he's the main character of Season 2, Haruka is also involved with his existence due to Jin's He Who Fights Monsters mindset.
  • Together in Death: The final shot in the season 2 finale suggests this with both his mother and Iyu.
  • Tragic Monster: Due to his unique biology, he's incredibly dangerous to humanity despite not doing anything directly. Despite his attempts to remain human, he realizes that he's too dangerous to live and in the end, he dies fighting Haruka and Jin. For bonus points, he's was at most chronologically four at his time of his death.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Way to Nowhere is a very brutal one as he considers himself a monster due to his rampage last episode and spends the episode on the run from his father, 4C and Iyu trying to kill him. While also thinking that his mother even thought to kill him due to Jin. This gets worse as even through, Iyu was showing signs of regaining her sense of self, Tachibana turns on the HP round in her armlet, slowly killing her. In the end, Chihiro gets himself killed by fighting Haruka and Jin, agreeing that he's too dangerous to live.

  • Tyke Bomb: He was raised as an Amazon Rider by 4C.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Very much so. While he lacks finesse and The Berserker-Confusion Fu of the other Riders, in his own way, he is a strong fighter. Against Haruka and Jin, he doesn't stand a chance against either one-on-one in a straight fight.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His own existence is the cause of all of the events of season 2 due to his unique biology that mutates humans in Amazons. Haruka even suggests that his cells turned Nanaha into an Amazon before he was even born.
  • Vigilante Man: He works with Team X to protect the city from the recent spate of Amazon attacks, serving as The Big Guy in the team. They don't last two episodes and he moves on to the 4C.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Notice a trend? Unlike Haruka, who questions his own existence whether or not he is a human or an Amazon, and has a personal viewpoint of this to unawakened Amazons that just wanted to live a normal life, Chihiro openly denies that he is an Amazon and considers himself a human. His Hates Being Touched issue is that it makes him want to eat people if they touch him. And then it comes to a head when he meets Iyu, who is an Amazon Sigma, and he has no desire to eat her because she's already dead. Since then, he goes out of his way to protect her if she gets injured too much. And then the negative side rears its ugly head in episode 9 when despite all of his attempts of staying human, he realizes that he was the Amazon that ate and presumably turned his mother into an Amazon. And when he wakes up from a slaughter that he caused, albeit unknowingly, he breaks down that he feels like a monster.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: His Amazon Origin form is one of the most obscenely powerful Amazonz seen in the entire series, capable of tearing through an army of Amazonz Hunters. He's also completely mindless and uncontrollable in that state, unable to tell the difference between "friend" and "foe".
  • Younger Than He Looks: He was born sometime during the 5 year time skip between seasons 1 and 2, at most he's four years old and the first episode of season 2 states that his growth was enhanced.
