A survivor of the dark magical ritual, he was able to subdue his emerging Phantom by holding onto hope. This gave him the ability to use magic through the equipment granted to him by the wizard in white.

Tropes that apply to him in general

  • Berserk Button: Nitoh's existence as a person in his life is one of these for him.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Haruto is a Nice Guy, yes, but he can be downright brutal in some fights, especially concerning Phoenix and later Sora/Gremlin. The former comes to its conclusion when he sends Phoenix to a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Big Eater: Can down a box of donuts in one sitting. He explains in Episode 4 that his appetite is partly driven by his need of energy from a high-calorie intake to replenish the mana he's constantly burning while using his magical powers, such as keeping Koyomi alive.
  • Body to Jewel: When he was struggling against Legion Phantom while powerless, his tear turned into a diamond, specifically the diamond-based Infinity Ring that only restores his power, but also gives him his Super Mode.
  • Bond One-Liner: He likes to drop these occasionally. After Phoenix pisses him off by almost killing Rinko, he drops a really good one: "There will be no finale for you.", which he says just as he Rider Kicks Phoenix to the sun.
  • Catchphrase: "It's showtime!"
  • Character Tic: Throughout the series, he has been making a sigh of relief that sounds like Phii, Fwee, or Fin..., depending on the listener.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Alongside with nearly becoming a Phantom in a ritual and being the cause of his friend's game-breaking injury, he had a dark and troubled past as a child. While still a child, his parents died in a car crash that left him as the only survivor. It's so troubled that it becomes Haruto's Underworld... at least until he accepted Koyomi's death. After that, his Underworld becomes a treasure trove of all the memories he had with her.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He just loves firing off one-liners before a fight. He saves the snark for his Phantom opponents and Nitoh.
  • Determinator: In that, he will not let someone become a phantom as long as he has a breath.
  • The Dragon: Unwittingly, to Wiseman. While Fueki has many Dragons, Haruto could be considered his main and most powerful one acting as his primary pawn, asset, and enforcer of his will carrying out the most important parts of his plans while being none the wiser.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: The Hope Ring is almost a subversion, since by the time he gets it Gremlin is dying anyway. He only uses it for one final Rider Kick, and then decides to put the ring in a safe place and never use it again.
  • Failure Knight: His giving people hope mentality comes from - in his eyes - his failure to save his parents and is extremely afraid of failing anyone.
  • Familiar: The Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken, and Golem PlaMonsters.
  • Freudian Excuse: The reason behind him being so dead-set on "restoring hope" to everyone? His parents' dying words were that he was their last hope. He took it to heart.
  • Grasp the Sun: Did that while being in the process of phantomication himself, where he struggled resisting forced despair.
  • Heroic BSoD: Spends a majority of episode 9 in one, and again in #23, almost to the point where he considered a 10-Minute Retirement.
  • Heroic Host: His powers come from the Dragon Phantom, who is one of the very Monsters of the Week he fights.
  • Heroic Willpower: Managed to survive the ritual by sheer force of will in refusing to give up hope.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Has a noticeable lack of self-esteem, from the guilt he has towards his parents' death and then his teammate's injury that halted his prospect of becoming a pro-football player, and how he doesn't see himself to have any other role than being Wizard, who has no hope of his own other than restore others'.
  • Hope Bringer: Serves this role to Gates who have been driven close to the Despair Event Horizon, having to pull them back and defeat the Phantom rampaging in their soul.
  • Hurting Hero: Has Survivor Guilt from the ritual that created the Phantoms as well as from being the sole survivor of the crash that killed his parents and its clear he's hurting a great deal from it. However, he also uses this as his main motivation and seems to be coping with it well.
  • Martyr Without a Cause: Best shown when he's willing to let himself die to save Koyomi's life when the White Wizard says so. He changes his mind when he learns that he's not the sacrifice, all of Tokyo is.
  • Meteor Move: Part of his fighting style in Hurricane Style is to get the opponent in the air, then mercilessly assault them from all sides as they fall.
  • Moment of Weakness: In Episode 45 he was willing to let his favorite teacher fall into despair in order to get a lead on the White Wizard and save Koyomi. Luckily, Shunpei put a stop to that.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his magic, especially the Connect Ring, for some mundane things, like a portal so he can retrieve his doughnuts from where he left them earlier.
  • Nice Guy: Maybe not to the extremes of Eiji or Gentaro, but he's still a stand-up guy and takes his duties to save Gates seriously. He's someone you can count on.
    • Best illustrated when Mayu tells him that the White Wizard asked her to steal the Infinity Ring. He actually gives it to her.
  • Not So Stoic: For quite a stoic guy, there are a few instances where Haruto really flips his shit. Like when Phoenix first attacked in #8. Their first fight was the first time Haruto seemed panicked and worried he might lose.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when he realizes Sora is a Serial Killer. This is added with Unstoppable Rage when he fights him later.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Kosuke's red.
  • Running Gag: He will never be able to fully enjoy a doughnut onscreen, because something bad ALWAYS happens to him when he tries to eat one (like his parents dying in a car crash).
  • Sarcasm Mode: Him complimenting Nitoh's downright stupid myna bird plan in Episode 37 was 100% pure sarcasm.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl:
    • To an extent, when he accidentally fell in a shopping cart while fighting the Bogy Phantom.
    • His voice also temporary broke when he exclaimed about an advertisement beforehand.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He wants nothing to do with Shunpei and Rinko's spat in Episode 36.
  • Smug Super: Downplayed, but it's there. He has the bad habit of toying with Lesser Phantoms while showing off his magic in the most dramatic way possible instead of just killing his opponent. A lot of conflict could be avoided if he just got down to business.
  • The Stoic: Haruto isn't as extreme an example as some, but he doesn't show much emotion.
  • Super Dickery: At the end of the series. Talking about saving Koyomi implied that he is willing to do the Sabbath ritual like Fueki. In reality, he was referring to saving her soul by letting her rest in peace. This is through retrieving the Philosopher's Stone and hiding it away.
  • Survivor Guilt: Has signs of this from being one of the only survivors of the ritual that created the Phantoms and surviving the crash that killed his family. While he doesn't say it was all his fault, it clearly effected him deeply.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Considers Phoenix beating Rinko nearly to death just for fun this.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Plain sugar donuts. Episode 52 also shows his personal favorites are from the Donut Shop Hungry truck, as he's eating a donut and comments that it's not the same as from Hungry.
  • Tranquil Fury: In #23 when Phoenix pushes him too far. He clearly is furious with Phoenix for what he did to Rinko, but Haruto keeps a calm tone the entire time (even for him), even when condemning Phoenix to a Fate Worse than Death and the Bond One-Liner that follows.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Sort of. The White Wizard seeing him overcoming his Inner Phantom inspired his Plan B thus starting the plot of the show.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Since Day One he's been unknowingly been one of Fueki's many Dragons.
  • Walking the Earth: At the end of the series, he searches for a place to leave Koyomi's ring. During Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle, he admits that he kept wandering because he couldn't find a place. Ultimately, he decides to leave Koyomi's ring in his memories.
  • Wham Line: Gave this to Phoenix after the latter proudly proclaim that he can never be fully killed.
    "There will be no finale for you."
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Would not respect or protect Sora's wishes to become a human being.
    Haruto: You have lost your human soul long ago. You don't count.
  • World's Best Warrior: In Super Hero Taisen Z, Sharivan describes him as the most powerful magic-user on Earth.

Tropes exclusive to him as Kamen Rider Wizard

  • Ace Custom: Out of all the Wizardriver users, Haruto's is the only one other than the White Wizard and Sorcerer's that has a unique Rider form and the only one with multiple forms and the Drago Timer period. Taken Up to Eleven by the fact Infinity Style was created entirely by him. In fact, his is the only Wizardriver period with gold trim rather than red and with it's voice and phrases. Possibly justified because the White Wizard was in a rush to get the Mage Trio ready due to Koyomi's decaying condition.
  • All Your Powers Combined: All Dragon
  • Armor of Invincibility: What Infinity Style is described as in Character Material. Oddly enough, this is included in the show itself.
  • Badass Longcoat: So much so that it can expand as a shield.
  • Car Fu: Played with. When he defeats a Phantom in a Gate’s Underworld, Wizard combines both his rides (his motorcycle and Dragon) into a giant dragon claw and fits it onto his foot for a super-powered Rider Kick.
  • Chrome Champion: His suit is already covered in gemstones, but Infinity Style takes the cake by being composed of sparkling silver and glittering diamonds.
  • Close-Range Combatant: In Infinity Style, where he only uses the Axcalibur as his sole Weapon of Choice.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His costume and wardrobe are primarily black, but Haruto is by no means a bad person.
  • Extremity Extremist: Favors his legs in combat. He presumably avoids punching so as not to bust up his rings.
  • Flash Step: Scanning the Infinity Ring while already in Infinity Style allows him to do this.
  • The Gunslinger: Is shown to be a Trick Shot in Flame Style and a Woo while using Hurricane Style.
  • Ice Magic Is Water: The Blizzard Ring, an ice-elemental spell, is exclusive to Water Style.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: His fighting style is a mixture of magic, acrobatic sweeping kicks, and a gun-sword.
  • Light Is Good: In Infinity Style.
  • Magic Knight: Seems to be the motif of Infinity Style, both in functionality and design.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: The Dragon Stylesnote  and All Dragon.
  • Palette Swap: Special Rush is an-all red version of All Dragon.
  • Ring of Power: This year's collectible trinket. Even Wizard's helmet is designed to look like a ring that wraps around his head. He seems to have two types of rings.
    • Transformation: Worn on his left hand, these allow Wizard to assume his "Style" forms.
      • The Flame Ring allows him to transform into Flame Style.
      • The Water Ring enables the Water Style.
      • The Hurricane Ring gives him the power of Hurricane Style.
      • The Land Ring transforms his form into Land Style.
      • The Dragon Rings: A series of Transformation Rings that are essentially stronger versions of Haruto's normal Style Rings, using the Wizardragon's power to enhance them.
      • The Infinity Ring: Made from Haruto's tears, this ring elevates him to Infinity Style, his strongest form. Also allows Dragon to change into the AxCalibur.
    • Magic: Worn on his right hand, these allow Wizard to cast magic spells.
      • Driver On: Calls upon the WizarDriver.
      • Dragorise Ring: Summons the WizarDragon in an Underworld.
      • Connect Ring: Provides a link between two locations or people, practically being used by Wizard as a Hyperspace Arsenal.
      • Kick Strike Ring: Enables Wizard to do a kick-based Finishing Move empowered by the element of his current Style.
      • Engage Ring: Allows Wizard to access other peoples' Underworlds. Different from other rings in that the other person has to be the one wearing it, not Wizard.
      • The Garuda, Unicorn, Kraken and Golem Rings summon (as model kits!) and then power up the PlaMonsters Red Garuda, Blue Unicorn, Yellow Kraken and Violet Golem.
      • Defend Ring: Allows Wizard to create a strong defensive barrier. The form of said barrier depends on Wizard's current Style;
      • in Land Style the ring forms a stone wall that not only can block enemy attacks, but also entomb them.
      • In Water Style the ring forms one of Wizard's magic sigils surrounded by water, which can also be slammed into enemies.
      • In Flame Style the ring envelops Wizard in flames, which can be used to clear debris.
      • Small Ring: Shrinks the user down to a tiny size.
      • Big Ring: Expands a body part to enormous size.... oh boy, or to enlarge the WizarSwordGun in it's sword form.
      • Copy Ring: Allows Kamen Rider Wizard to create copies of himself in combat, or duplicate the WizarSwordGun.
      • Sleep Ring: Puts the wearer to sleep.
      • Light Ring: Illuminates the area with bright light.
      • Extend Ring: Allows Wizard to elongate a part of his body... oh my.
      • Liquid Ring: Used only in Water Style, it allows Wizard to become liquid, akin to Black RX's BioRider form or OOO ShaUTa Combo.
      • Bind Ring: Five circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims.
      • Please Ring: Transfers magical energy from Wizard to the wearer. Particularly, Koyomi as she needs mana to live.
      • Drill Ring: Used in Land Style, it allows Wizard to spin at high speeds and tunnel through the ground. It can also be used to enhance the Kick Strike into a Spin Attack.
      • Smell Ring: Makes the wearer emit a disgusting odor.
      • Special Ring: While in a Dragon Style, it summons a part of WizarDragon's body as armor - a Chest Blaster for Flame Dragon, a pair of wings for Hurricane Dragon, a Tail Slap for Water Dragon or Wolverine Claws for Land Dragon. For Flame Dragon, doubles as the Finisher Ring.
      • Blizzard Ring: Enables Wizard to use his Finishing Move in Water Dragon Style.
      • Thunder Ring: Enables Wizard to use his Finishing Move in Hurricane Dragon Style.
      • Gravity Ring: Enables Wizard to use his Finishing Move in Land Dragon Style.
      • Merry Christmas Ring:: A one time use ring that restores destroyed gifts.
      • Dress Up Ring: Changes Haruto's outfit as a handy disguise.
      • Excite Ring: Make Wizard much more muscular.
      • Fall Ring: Creates a hole directly below the user. Useful for quick escapes.
      • Hope Ring: A ring created from the Philosopher's Stone and Haruto's hope. Allows Wizard to perform a powered up version of his Rider Kick summoning energy projections of Dragon representing Fire, Land, Hurricane, Water, and Infinity to strike the opponent.
      • Finish Strike Ring: Used during the events of Wizard in Magic Land, this equips Infinity Style with all of Dragon's parts save for the head, that being used during the finisher. Later gains a golden form which includes the head in The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle.
    • Wizard can also use Beast's rings for various effects. It's unclear if this trend will continue however:
      • Dolphi Ring: Allows the user to melt into liquid and hide/strike from all directions. Furthermore, the user does not need to be transformed first in order to use the spell.
      • Falco Ring: The user molts into a mass of feathers upon any physical contact, allowing them to be unhurt from strikes. Like Dolphi, it can be used on a non-transformed individual. Used on Nitoh while he lacked the Beast Driver.
  • Super Wrist-Gadget: The Drago Timer, a device created exclusively for the Dragon Styles. Always used in Flame Dragon.
    • Doppelgänger Attack: Summons clones of Wizard's 3 other Dragon Styles. Unlike the Copy Ring, the Dragon Style clones can act on their own.
    • Finishing Move: Dragon Four-Mationnote 
    • All Your Powers Combined: By scanning the Drago Timer on the WizarDriver, Wizard can unite the Dragon Styles into All Dragon.
  • Weapon of Choice
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Uses submission moves in #4.
    • He uses even more when Land Style appears in Episode 6.

    Dragon Phantom 
Voice Actor: Ryuzaburo Otomo
Live Actor: Shunya Shiraishi

Haruto's inner Phantom, and the source of his powers.

  • Animalistic Abomination
  • Came Back Strong: After being killed by Legion and revived, he gains the power to transform into the Axcalibur and give Haruto access to Infinity Style.
  • Character Development: Until #31, Dragon acted like your typical Phantom: destructive and obsessed with bringing his Gate to despair. After Haruto's strong heart revived him, though, he has decided to become Haruto's "hope" and allows him to access Infinity Style.
  • Combining Mecha: With Wizard's Machine Winger called Winger WizarDragon.
  • Enemy Within
  • Finishing Move: Strike Endnote 
  • Heel–Face Turn: By #30, Haruto rubbed off on him and ultimately causes him to perform a Heroic Sacrifice to protect Beast and Chimera. He completes his turn in #31 upon being brought Back from the Dead by Haruto's hope, stating that now he is Haruto's hope.
  • Hope Bringer: After being reborn by Haruto's sheer force of will, he declares he will become Haruto's hope through the Infinity Style and AxCalibur.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Subverted at first, as when summoned, Haruto has to control him to fight other Phantoms.
  • In the Back: Dragon might be a Hope Bringer, but he has no qualms trying to take over Haruto when given the chance, as shown in the movie.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Surprisingly the Dragon Phantom does show slight signs of this, despite being a hostile Phantom inside Haruto. He was mildly surprised when Haruto willingly called him his hope.
    • Pragmatic Villainy: But, Dragon still teases Haruto about how he will end up giving up to despair and laughs at the fact Haruto calls him the opposite of it. He allows him to borrow his powers mostly because if Haruto dies without losing hope, he will die with him. Better shown in the movie, despite the fact Dragon declared he will be Haruto's hope.
    • Heroic Sacrifice: What Dragon does in #30. Whether that's a Jerk with a Heart of Gold or Pragmatic Villainy is up for debate.
      • Considering in #31, when he's brought Back from the Dead, he tells Haruto that he's going to be his hope, so it seems he really has changed.
  • Meaningful Echo: Earlier, Haruto told him that he was his hope. After being brought Back from the Dead after being destroyed by Legion, it's Dragon who says that he is Haruto's hope.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: It's hard to tell whether the Dragon Phantom is biological, mechanical, or spiritual. It could be all of them.
  • Oxymoronic Being: As a Phantom, he was born from Haruto's despair, yet he calls him his hope.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Haruto keeps him sealed.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Being originally a Phantom that wants to overtake his Gate.

    Koyomi 
Live Actress: Makoto Okunaka

A mysterious young girl who was given to Haruto by the White Wizard. She has the supernatural ability to discern Phantoms through their human disguises. According to the White Wizard, she was a victim that died in the same Sabbath ritual that Haruto suffered through; though her body somehow stayed intact and can be kept reanimated by a wizard's mana.

He's lying, partially. She is a reanimated corpse, but she died of natural causes. Her father Fueki turned to magic and became the White Wizard to try and save her, keeping her "alive" with the Philosopher's Stone and performing the Sabbath in an attempt to resurrect her completely.

Tropes:

  • A Friend in Need: No matter what, Koyomi will always be there for Haruto to help lift him up out of his darkest hour.
  • Ambiguously Human: According to pre-release material, she doesn't know whether she is a human survivor of the ritual, or a Phantom in human form. Turns out she's human, but not exactly a "survivor"...
  • Berserk Button: A surefire way to make Koyomi angry is to insult Haruto. Do not imply he is trying anything but his hardest around her.
  • Crystal Ball: Uses one to show her where Haruto is.
  • Dead All Along: Sort of. The real Koyomi died sometime ago, and Fueki describes the one we know as a puppet that houses the Philosopher's Stone.
  • Evil Laugh: Of a witch vibe. Even though she only did it to scare Shunpei in episode 32.
  • Heroic Vow: In Episode 42 she swears that she will live her life to its fullest as a human being no matter what she really is.
  • Ill Girl: Since her childhood.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Sora/Gremlin constantly calls her a 'doll' in an extremely demeaning fashion.
  • Killed Off for Real: Gremlin kills her by forcefully removing the Philosopher's Stone that was keeping her alive and unlike Kengo, she wasn't revived in the final episode. Then again, considering how trying to revive her caused the mess in the first place and how she told her own father that he shouldn't have bothered with bringing her to life, it could be for the best.
    • With Haruto taking the Philosopher's Stone out of Gremlin, there may still be hope. Haruto made brief contact with Koyomi before the Philosopher's Stone became the Hope Ring. Though Haruto decides not to use it again after destroying Gremlin, he keeps it in a safe place, so there's still a possibility like with Ankh's broken Taka Medal.
  • Legacy Character: Forcefully turned into the second White Wizard in the Crossover movie.
  • Meaningful Name: Means "calendar", relating to her fortune-telling ability.
  • Missing Mom: It's mentioned that her mother passed away some time ago.
  • Mission Control: For Haruto. She controls the PlaMonsters and searches for Phantoms with her crystal ball while Haruto gumshoes.
  • Morality Chain: For Fueki. More precisely, Fueki abandoned any morals after she died in order to bring her back to life.
  • Only One Name: Because that's all she can remember. Turns out her last name is Fueki; she's the daughter of the White Wizard.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: A rare benevolent Type V.
  • Out of Focus: Her actress is an idol with a busy schedule, so she doesn't get as much screentime as her character absolutely should.
  • Stepford Smiler: Becomes this trope as she begins to mysteriously fall apart.

    Shigeru Wajima 
Live Actor: Hisahiro Ogura

A keen archaeologist and gemcutter. He creates the rings that Kamen Rider Wizard uses in his magic, carving the gems and then setting them in the rings.

Tropes:

  • The Atoner: Since some of his stuff was used in the ritual, he houses Haruto and Koyomi and builds magic tools for them as penance.
  • Black Box: During episode 3, he claims to just follow his instincts, carving the gems and setting them into rings, without knowing what gives them power or what spell they will cast once ready.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Parental Substitute: Seems to view himself as a father figure to Haruto and Koyomi. You can hear the pain in his voice in #47 when he says that Koyomi is better off with "her real father".
  • Real Men Cook
  • Small Role, Big Impact: It's easy to forget that his artifacts were used to help start the Eclipse thereby setting the entire plot into motion.
  • The Engineer: Obviously, since he makes rings.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Team Dad: Has the wisdom and life experience to impart good advice to the rest of the group.

    Rinko Daimon 
Live Actress: Yuko Takayama (Adult)/Ichino Suehara (Child)

A rookie detective who is devoted to protecting the lives of innocents. She has become interested in Kamen Rider Wizard after being saved by him, and because he is the key to fighting the Phantoms that threaten the city.

Tropes:

  • Big Eater: Early in #3, she eats all of Haruto's donuts in a matter of about one minute. Made funnier when in the following episode, she asks Haruto how he can eat so many donuts in one sitting.
  • The Commissioner Gordon
  • Despair Event Horizon: Is driven dangerously close to it by Minotaur, but pulled back by Wizard.
  • Fair Cop
  • Heroic BSoD: Ends up having this in the last episode. Just as Haruto shows up to (as he put it) "save Koyomi", Rinko ended up thinking Haruto had gone bad. She gets out of it when Haruto explained he was gonna save Koyomi's spirit.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!
    • Tells what she believes to be a good Phantom that he shouldn't follow orders and just do what he wants. Said Phantom turns out to be Phoenix, who takes her advice and decides he's going to have as much of his 'fun' as he wants.
    • Another is exposing the real arsonist (a Gate's pet bird), where the bird transformed into the Phantom in front of a Gate's eyes, causing him to despair. Surprisingly, this is Played for Laughs.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: She has standing orders to ignore the Phantom threat, but is going behind her boss' back to help Haruto anyway. Eventually, Agent Kizaki informs her superiors to not interfere with her association with Wizard after he comes around.
  • Ship Tease: Implied with Haruto. They finally get a Relationship Upgrade in the series tie-in novel.
  • Sexy Santa Dress: Wears one in #16 as part of police duty on Christmas Eve, though its more cute than sexy, as noted by Haruto.
  • Tsundere: Has shades of Type B in the first episode.

    Shunpei Nara 
Live Actor: Junki Tozuka/Ryusei Shoji (Child)

A wizardry fanboy who wants to become Haruto's apprentice.

Tropes:

  • Big Damn Heroes: Yes, really, in Episode #45 he saves the day stopping Siren from sending the Gate past the Despair Event Horizon.
  • Bumbling Sidekick/Reckless Sidekick: Manages to be both at once.
  • Camp: Has definite shades of this.
  • Distressed Dude: At least twice.
  • Face Fault: Frequently falls on his face for comic effect.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: His dream is to become a magician just like the ones in the story books he read as a child.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Definitely meant as a surrogate for young audience members.
  • The Klutz: Known to frequently trip, break things and/or injure himself.
  • Large Ham: His expressions are over-the-top. Nuff' said.
  • The Load: Episodes 12 and 13 have him fearing that he is this because he feels like he doesn't contribute anything to the fight against the Phantoms compared to everyone else on Team Wizard. This is subverted when he realizes his strength is his Nice Guyness.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: The Feminine Boy to Rinko's Masculine Girl.
  • Nice Guy: His greatest strength. His energetic personality, persistance, determination, and unconditional kindness inspire people to believe in hope and the good in the world and not to fall into despair. Best shown in episode 13.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Helping Rinko expose an arsonist is one. See the above for more details.
  • One of the Kids: In his first scene, even kids consider him childish. Some episodes later when the Victim of the Week is a kid, he and Shunpei are even dressed the same.
  • Playing with Fire: In his introductory episodes. Subverted as it was the Hellhound Phantom behind the powers.
  • Sidekick: Self-proclaimed one to Haruto. Eventually made official.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: After his Big Damn Heroes moment, he calls Haruto and Nitoh on their recently callous actions, telling them that they're both no better than the White Wizard.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: When infiltrating a high school in #26.

    Donut Shop Hungry Manager 
Live Actor: Kaba-chan

The manager of a local donut-focused food truck, the Donut Shop Hungry. He likes Haruto, who is a loyal customer, even though Haruto only ever buys the plain sugar donuts.

Tropes:

  • Apocalypse Maiden: He was kidnapped by the Akumaizer during Ultimatum and used to bring about the end of the world.
  • Berserk Button: People messing up his donuts, as seen when he noticed Kosuke spreading mayonnaise on some donuts. Subverted when he tasted one of them himself, as it gave him an inspiration to make a new kind of donut, then played straight again when he served Kosuke a new donut which already had mayonnaise in it, and Kosuke spread more mayo on top. The Manager was furious and refused to let Kosuke eat it.
  • Camp Gay: Is very effeminate and dresses like a woman while working on his food truck. Ironically, the actor playing him, who is openly gay, actually tones down his campiness for this character.
  • Flat Character: His employee one of the most blatant cases in any Kamen Rider series. He really never has much to say or do except to keep his boss in check when he gets into TMI territory, and be frustrated alongside the Manager when Haruto only asks for plain sugar donuts.
  • Friend to All Children
  • Funny Background Event: Is usually involved in this with his employee, Ryuu.
  • Gossipy Hens: The Manager is all-too-quick to start going on about things like Haruto's potential love life and his own dreams. In fact, much of the Funny Background Events involve his assistant physically trying to shut him up before he goes too far.
  • Local Hangout: When the good guys are not discussing the problem of the week or relaxing in the antique shop, they will definitely be doing so at the donut truck. Strangely, the Manager and his employee never make anything of it until they see Haruto transform in front of them well into the series.
  • No Name Given: Is only known as Manager.
    • Movie War Ultimatum reveals his name to be Yu Kamimura.
  • Queer People Are Funny
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's red, and his employee Ryu is blue.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: The Donut Shop Hungry antics become less frequent as the series goes on.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Movie War Ultimatum shows that he looked like a beautiful woman in his youth. Haruto did not take it well.

    The White Wizard 

Portrayed by: Toshitsugi Takashina (first voice), Narushi Ikeda (live, second voice), Jun Watanabe (suit)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shiroi_8512.png

A mysterious wizard in white robes who gives Haruto the equipment needed to fight the Phantoms. Later in the series he's shown to be even more ambiguous than first thought, and is revealed to be Wiseman, leader of the Phantoms.


  • Big Good: Initially seems this way. He provides Haruto with new gear and steps in to save him at times if need be. However, things start to change by #31.
  • Because Destiny Says So: He uses this as a justification for his more dickish moves, it's a very obvious lie.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Most times he shows up, it's to drive away a Phantom in the nick of time.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: In his earlier appearances he was your standard Big Good, but by the end, it has become obvious that he only values people depending how useful they are to him and his goals.
  • Blatant Lies: Him playing the destiny card is rather obvious BS in and out of universe.
  • Broken Ace: He's a brilliant scientist who has made countless discoveries that has helped mankind, the most powerful Wizard in the setting, reinvented magic, is the World's Strongest Man, but he's also a mass murdering egocentric maniac who was driven insane by his daughter's death.
  • Brown Note: Whenever the White Wizard uses his weapon in a flute-like manner. Kizaki and Beast were victims of this.
  • But Thou Must!: There are some people who turned down his offer in becoming a magician. The White Wizard simply chained them up, bring them to another place and made them Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • But Not Too Evil: He's a loving father, so he's not all evil. While a lot of people died and became phantoms by his hands, but judging by the dialogue between him and Gremlin in #50, he's definitely not proud of it.
  • Cast as a Mask: After he's revealed to be Fueki, his voice actor is replaced by Fueki's actor.
  • The Chessmaster: Rather easy to be one when you run both sides.
  • Consummate Liar: Everything that came out of his mouth during the first three quarters of the show were nothing more than excellently crafted lies.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Everytime he pulls a Big Damn Heroes moment, he is curb-stomping someone. First he knocked away Lizardman with a magical rune, and he sent Beelzebub running with just two attacks. And he did so both times without moving from his spot. Later curb-stomp victims include Medusa, Beast (twice), and Gremlin.
  • Death by Irony: The man who has plotted everything from Haruto's rise to power all the way up to the Eclipse is defeated by a person who depended more on luck than on proper planning... twice.
  • Despair Event Horizon: The original Koyomi's death was this for him. It turned him into a completely amoral, self-centered bastard... And he didn't turn into a Phantom. He's still human.
    • Might be subverted because right after he goes through it, he creates an artificial phantom.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: He was not born a Gate and thus did not possess magic naturally like Haruto; he used science to artificially grow a Phantom within himself and give himself magic.
  • Enigmatic Empowering Entity: He gives Haruto the WizarDriver and teaches him how to use it before disappearing. Later, he anonymously delivers the magic stone for the Flame Dragon Ring, directs Koyomi to the Water Dragon stone, and helps Haruto create the Drago Timer. He even eventually takes on Mayu and Yuzuru as apprentices - even though Yuzuru doesn't want to be one.
  • Entitled Bastard: He states that everyone that he turned into a Phantom should be happy that they died for him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Fueki may be evil, but he truly does love his daughter and seems to miss his wife a great deal.
  • Evil All Along
  • Evil Counterpart: Examining him closely you'll realize he's a pretty solid one to Haruto. They both lost their loved ones (and bonus points for the inverse relationship, with Haruto being the child who lost his parents and Fueki being the parent who lost his child) and while Haruto was able to move on from his loss and become a selfless Nice Guy, Fueki became a selfish, callous human being. They also got their powers in opposite ways, as Haruto gained his magic from the power of hope while Fueki got the idea to give himself magic powers after passing the Despair Event Horizon. Both were motivated by Koyomi but in the end, Haruto knew when to stop chasing ghosts while Fueki didn't.
  • Evil Mentor
  • Evil Sorcerer: He's got all the bases covered. All-powerful and mysterious? Check. Summons demons? Check. Mass human sacrifice? Triple check.
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Familiar: The White Garuda and Cerberus PlaMonsters.
  • Gold and White Are Divine
  • Human Sacrifice: Fueki is a BIG fan of this trope and is his answer to any problem that comes up in his life: Kidnap a bunch of people and turn them into horrid monsters.
  • Irony: The most powerful Wizard in the story is most well known as a scientist.
  • It's All About Me: Haruto calls him out on murdering countless people to further his own goals. He calls them all "insignificant" and says that they should be happy that they died for him.
  • Kick the Dog: He beat Kizaki into a coma because he figured out some secret about him, abducted a kid to train against his will, and nearly killed Beast for interfering twice over.
  • Killed Off for Real: by Sora.
  • Kill Steal: Sorry Mayu, looks like you won't be getting your revenge after all.
  • Knight of Cerebus: When he shows up, shit gets real.
  • Knight Templar: Despises the Phantoms and wants them destroyed, but is willing to go to rather extreme lengths to do so. Or that's his cover story.
  • Language of Magic: The White Wizard is able to do this, and what's better is that's it's combined with his already-deep voice.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His plans come crashing down because he pissed off the wrong person (Nitoh) in his second attempt to save Koyomi, and was utterly defeated by two people who were birthed from his first attempt (Sora and Haruto).
    • Hoist by His Own Petard: He's killed by the same weapon he used to pin Sora to a tree with... By the very same guy no less.
  • Light Is Good: At first, then...
    • Light Is Not Good: As the fight against the Phantoms goes on, the White Wizard gradually shows a darker, more ruthless side. And then he's revealed to be an alter-ego of Wiseman.
  • Love Makes You Evil and Crazy: The original Koyomi's death made him completely lose it!
  • Koyomi, I Am Your Father
  • Lunacy: His Instant Runes have the lunar cycle imprinted on them.
  • Mad Scientist
  • Magitek: He created his magic from science. He even implanted himself with an Artificial Phantom!
  • The Man Behind the Monsters
  • Manipulative Bastard: His relationship with Mayu is disturbingly similar to his alter-ego's relationship with Medusa. And he's responsible for the death of Mayu's sister and parents in the first place.
  • Master Actor: Fueki was able to con everyone with his skills. He was able to play the role as a benevolent Big Good as the White Wizard, a mysterious Evil Overlord as Wiseman, and a morally ambiguous Anti-Hero in the later phases of his plan all while hiding that he really isn't all that sane.
  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: Hamel Cane
  • Moral Myopia: He truly loves his daughter, but outside of that he's an outright sociopath considering kidnapping, assault, mass murder, and human sacrifice to be perfectly acceptable practices.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: His killing of Medusa in #48 when he decided that she wasn't needed after finding his fourth Wizard. By that point, with the exception of the Wizard's Phantoms, it would appear that she and Gremlin were the only Phantoms left. If only Fueki had kept her alive and manipulated her for just a while longer, seeing as how out of everyone she was perhaps most cautious of Sora and as stated by Wiseman himself, she was the only one he really trusted. She might have taken Sora down just as he was about to make his move.
  • Not So Different: To Gremlin of all people. Both are selfish mass murderers who have driven themselves insane chasing ghosts and both exemplify why Humans Are the Real Monsters. This is probably why he flipped out when Gremlin called him "Father", it hit a little too close to home.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: He's said to be a famous physicist, but has also contributed to a number of other fields, including medicine and technology. Plus being a biologist and magicologist, since he invented an artificial Phantom (Carbuncle, AKA Wiseman) and implanted it in himself to let him wield magic.
  • Palette Swap: His costume is unique in a sense, but he and Wizard share the same base.
    • His belt was initially a blatant example of a repaint of Haruto's Wizardriver during his debut and early appearances, but the producers replaced the repainted prop with an actual slightly different White Wizardriver.
  • Papa Wolf: Do NOT mess with his daughter; Gremlin learned this the hard way...TWICE.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: "消える."note 
  • Pride: Fueki is completely convinced in his own infallibility, superiority, and righteousness, making him incapable of seeing himself in being wrong in any way. This causes him to leave loose ends, like letting Nitoh and Sora live.
  • Ring of Power: After all, he's "Wizard but stronger." Many of his rings are Wizard's by different names.
    • Driver On Ring: Calls upon the White Wizard Driver.
    • Change Ring: Activates the transformation into the White Wizard.
    • Barrier Ring: Allows WW to create a strong defensive barrier. A renamed version of Wizard's Defend Ring.
    • Connect Ring: Provides a link between two locations or people; identical to Wizard's.
    • Explosion Ring: Exactly What It Says on the Tin. As basic as it sounds, it's surprisingly powerful, on par with Beast's Hyper Mirage Magnum attack.
    • Teleport Ring: Allows Mass Teleportation.
    • Chain Ring: Circles appear from the ground and sprout chains to wrap around the victims. Again, it's Wizard's Bind Ring by a different name.
    • White Garuda Ring: Summons the White Garuda PlaMonster.
    • Cerberus Ring: Summons the Black Cerberus PlaMonster.
    • Dupe Ring: Allows Self-Duplication. However, unlike Wizard's Copy Ring, it works more like the Drago Timer, with each clone moving independently rather than unison.
    • The White WizarDriver suggests he has more rings that match Wizard's but have different names, such as a "Giant Ring" (Big), and "Micro Ring" (Small).
  • Running Both Sides
  • Shadow Archetype: Not just in the traditional way, but even his own Driver has its own 'dark' versions of Wizard's spells. It replaces the Wizardriver's "Please" with "Now", "Chou ii ne!" with "Yes!" and "Saikoooou!" with "Understand?!"
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Tells Haruto as much when Haruto says he'll save Koyomi another way.
  • Space Master: Materials identify his magic as space-based, evidenced by his signature rings: Explosion (supercompresses and then releases magic in a very small area) and Teleport (self-explanatory).
  • Stranger Behind the Mask: Fueki is introduced one episode before he's revealed as the White Wizard. Subverted when he's revealed to be Wiseman.
  • Super Empowering: When a Gate manages to resist despair, he immediately teleports in to offer them the chance to become a wizard. And doesn't take "no" for an answer. Also applies to himself, since he became a Wizard by creating an artificial Phantom and implanting it in his own body.
  • The Engineer: It is heavily implied that he makes his own rings, though not particularly as good as Wajima when it comes to quality.
  • The Stoic: The White Wizard is strangely calm for almost everytime he appears.
    • Tranquil Fury: He does, however, show subtle hints that he's definitely not the nicest person.
      • The Fury part is more evident whenever he does his Henshin call.
    • Not So Stoic: Just look at how pissed he gets when Beast ruins his plans.
  • The Svengali: He raises and trains Wizards in order to turn them into Human Sacrifices for his own selfish benefit.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction to Beast ruining his plans.
  • This Is Something He's Got to Do Himself: Strangely enough, The White Wizard doesn't seem to give a shit about Phantoms, despite his power. The Lizardman, Phoenix, Beelzebub, Medusa, and Legion Phantoms were all at his mercy, but they lived (a little longer) because of his choice to let Haruto do the dirty work instead.
    • Almost subverted in #46; Gremlin pushes him a bit too far, with the latter actually aiming to kill Gremlin. He almost gave chase when Gremlin flees, but is stopped by Haruto.
  • Tragic Villain: All he wanted to do was save his daughter's life, but in the end failed to accomplish even that, only succeeding in creating an army of monsters and allowing a Sociopathic Serial Killer to gain unspeakable power by killing his daughter.
  • Underestimating Badassery: No matter what, he never saw Beast as a threat. This came to epically bite him in the ass.
    • Deconstructed with Gremlin. This proved to be a fatal mistake for not only him, but for everyone else.
  • The Unfettered: There is no price to high, no atrocity too heinous to commit, and no Moral Event Horizon he will not cross in order to save his daughter.
  • Unperson: He seems to have done this to himself. There is almost no information about his former identity.
    • He also goes through a lot of trouble to make sure nobody investigates him. Including seriously injuring Kizaki and destroying his office.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Shamelessly lies to get others to do his bidding.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: While he has done enough atrocities to fill a book on purpose there was no way he could have known that the campy hairdresser he kidnapped was a sociopath and a Serial Killer that would eventually become an all powerful monster that he couldn't control.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Gets noticeably angry for the first time when Beast foils the second Sabbath.
    " I'll have you cowering in fear and despair as you die!"
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His goal of stopping phantoms doesn't stop the fact that he kidnaps Yuzuru to do this, as well as beat up Kizaki and Beast for interfering.
    • As it turns out his real goal is to help his daughter Koyomi, and if that means taking things to the extreme, so be it.
  • World's Strongest Man: He is clearly in a league of his own. Wizard had to go all out with Infinity just to beat him and that knocked Haruto out of his transformation.
  • Xanatos Speed Chess: The first Sabbath was supposed to revive Koyomi but it was only halfway successful. Seeing Haruto overcome his despair caused Fueki to modify his plans to use Wizards as the sacrifices instead.

    Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast 

Kosuke Nitoh/Kamen Rider Beast

Portrayed by: Tasuku Nagase (live), Jun Watanabe (suit)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beasto_5633.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nitoh_1074.png

A student archeologist who discovered a mysterious belt known as the Beast Driver in one of his expeditions.

Tropes that apply to him in general

  • Accidental Misnaming: Does not like people calling him "Mayonnaise".
  • Anti-Hero: After Yuzuru's kidnapping he's shown that he's willing to throw his morals out the window in order to save him. This includes teaming up with Sora.
  • All Men Are Perverts: The man spends the first act of Episode #26 being enamored with schoolgirls. Lampshaded by Rinko when he argues that the girl he was looking for was Medusa, while commenting on how cute she was.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing
  • Badass Bookworm: He was an archaeologist before becoming Beast.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Yuzuru.
  • Big Eater: Deconstructed. He needs to keep eating not just regular food, but the mana from phantoms as well, or else he will die.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Sacrificing his powers to stop the second Sabbath doesn't stop him from kicking Ghoul butt in the finale.
  • Butt-Monkey: In and out of combat.
  • Catchphrase: "Now, it's lunchtime!" and "Stop! Don't say it!"
  • Deal with the Devil: Accepts an offer from Sora to help find the White Wizard.
  • Ditzy Genius: Tends to lose his train of thought and go off on weird tangents making you forget that he is a skilled fighter and a talented archeologist.
  • Familiar: His Griffin PlaMonster.
  • Friend to All Children
  • Genre Throwback: His henshin pose is a more elaborate series of movements similar to the Showa era Kamen Rider shows.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Heterosexual Today?: Whenever the subject of the Engage Rings come up, he comments on how he doesn't want another dude putting a ring on his hand or vice-versa. (The fact that they're called Engage Rings doesn't help.)
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He sets Chimera free to stop the second Sabbath. Even Chimera didn't know what would happen to Nitoh afterwards, but in the end Nitoh just loses his powers. In a way, he and Haruto are even, doing something to protect the other at the cost of their powers.
  • Hidden Depths: Episodes that focus on him tend to show that he's not as angst-free about his condition as he acts.
  • Kiai: Shouts out gao when he attacks, which is Japanese onomatopoeia for a lion's roar.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: He started out as one, being a competent Shunpei, but grows out of it after Yuzuru's kidnapping and becoming an unfettered Anti-Hero.
  • Large Ham: There are many times where you can see his hamminess, such as when he was telling the time he got his Beast Driver, or, more commonly, his Henshin call.
  • Let No Crisis Go to Waste: His basic attitude is that danger comes with opportunity.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Tends to suffer from lack of focus but when the situation calls for it he'll get serious. Best shown with the Legion situation.
    • Slyphi's crimes made him become extremely dangerous.
    • By Episode 42 you'll wonder if he's the same person with how serious, angry, and dangerous he's become.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: When he first arrived, he knew next to nothing about Phantoms except Chimera eats them. Until Haruto fills him in, this was part of the reason for their conflict.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When he discovers Phantoms emerging from a Gate kills them, something he didn't know when he unwittingly aided the Phantoms.
  • My Greatest Failure: In episode #31, he considers being unable to stop Dragon from being killed by Legion this.
    • This has been replaced by Yuzuru's kidnapping at the White Wizard's hands. It has turned him into an unfettered, hardcore, Anti-Hero.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The rest of the cast is very creeped out at how serious he is after Yuzuru's kidnapping.
  • Phlebotinum Dependence
  • Poor Communication Kills: All of the conflict he creates comes from his inability to listen to other people.
  • Power at a Price: Chimera granted him the power to fight Phantoms through the Beast Driver, but requires that Kosuke regularly feed him the mana of defeated monsters.
  • Puny Earthlings: The White Wizard spits "Puny Archetype" at Beast's face during their fights.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Haruto's blue.
  • The Rival:
    • He viewed Haruto as this, mainly because he's off killing his food source and at the start believed he was snacking on Phantoms too. Though he seems to mean it in a friendly or joking manner. He even says that rivals ought to give one another a hand every so often. He stopped being rivals with him once the Phantoms hit it too close to home and went after his grandmother.
    • He also declared the White Wizard as a Rival upon meeting him, but let's face it, the White Wizard is way out of Nitoh's league. As the White Wizard eventually proved; but Nitoh got the better of him when it counted.
  • Second Rider
  • So Last Season: Soon after he showed up, Haruto got access to the Drago Timer. Even getting his Super Mode didn't help much, as one arc after Nitoh getting Hyper Beast, Haruto got Infinity Style. Poor Nitoh.

Tropes exclusive to him as Kamen Rider Beast

  • Badass Cape: Has a half-cape on his right shoulder whenever he changes Mantles.
  • Bare-Handed Blade Block: He manages to do this to Sphinx. And to the White Wizard in their final battle.
  • Dance Battler: Not prominent, but Beast is somehow able to do so during #26 against Medusa.
    • It could be possibly explained as because the suit actor, Jun Watanabe, is acting for Beast and Medusa, so the producers probably had to get either Takaiwa or Eitoku to suit up as Beast.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of two from the White Wizard. He makes up for it with a sacrifice play in round three.
  • Fun Size: Rolling one on the Dice Saber cause the sole animal to be chibi-sized. Only fun to watch it being unable to finish the foe off, though.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard/Magic Knight: Depends on how you look at it.
  • Magical Girl: To hide his identity from his grandmother, he resorted to calling himself this.
  • More Dakka: A normal Saber Strike summons the number of mana creatures he rolls on the Dice Saber. A Hyper Saber Strike takes that number and multiplies it by four (the number rolled per each of his Mantles).
  • Powerup Letdown:
    • Rolling a one on his Dice Saber. The single creature it summons isn't enough even to annoy a Phantom. Subverted the third time he does so, though, where with his Heroic Willpower, it becomes much more powerful.
    • His Hyper Form has some aspects of this, as it's stronger but doesn't have access to his Mantles and is therefore less versatile.
  • Primary-Color Champion: His Super Mode is blue and gold with red highlights.
  • Re-Power: In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle, he recaptures Chimera offscreen and becomes Beast again.
  • Ring of Power: Allows him to transform and switch powers. Rather than having Styles like Wizard, he has Mantles, which influences his power depending on what half-cape he dons on his right side.
    • Driver On Ring: Calls upon the Beast Driver.
    • Beast Ring: When inserted into the Beast Driver and turned, this ring opens the buckle and activates the transformation into Kamen Rider Beast.
    • Falco Ring: Equips Beast with the Falco Mantle.
    • Chameleo Ring: Equips Beast with the Chameleo Mantle.
    • Buffa Ring: Equips Beast with the Buffa Mantle.
    • Dolphi Ring: Equips Beast with the Dolphi Mantle.
    • Griffon Ring: Allows Beast to Summon the Green Griffon Plamonster. Interestingly, Nitoh has to use Driver On in order to summon Griffon.
    • Chimerise Ring: Summons BeastChimera.
    • Engage Ring: Enables Beast to enter a Gate's Underworld.
    • Hyper Ring: Changes Beast into his Hyper Style and arms him with the Mirage Magnum.
  • Sword and Gun: In Episode 43, he was able to use both the Dice Saber and the Mirage Magnum as Beast Hyper. This combination makes the White Wizard treat him as a threat.
  • Transformation Trinket: His Beast Driver and Wizard Rings.
    • This is played for laughs in his debut, as he forgets where he keeps his rings.
  • Weapon of Choice

    Chimera Phantom 
Voice Actor: Tomomichi Nishimura

Nitoh's Phantom, though unlike other Phantoms, it was not manifested within Nitoh. Instead, it was sealed inside the Beast Driver a long time ago, when magic and science were used together. It merged with Nitoh when he discovered and first used the Beast Driver.

    Mayu Inamori/Kamen Rider Mage 
Live Actor: Erina Nakayama
Suit Actor: Satoshi Fujita

The twin sister of Misa Inamori a.k.a. Medusa. She, like Haruto, managed to suppress her phantom and after training with the White Wizard, returns as a witch.

Tropes that apply to her in general

  • Action Girl
  • And Then What?: Shes not sure what to do after Medusa dies.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Her debut as Mage in Episode 40, intefering just in time before Medusa can finish Haruto off.
  • Broken Bird
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Medusa's Cain.
  • Deal with the Devil: The White Wizard said he will give her the means of defeating Medusa in trade for the Infinity Ring. She eventually tells Haruto about it...and he gives her the ring of his own free will.
  • Distress Ball: Grabs it after The Reveal. She becomes so broken that she's easily kidnapped by Fueki's latest Dragon, Yuzuru (a child).
  • Faux Action Girl: Became one after Medusa's defeat. Justified as she only became a magician to avenge her family. She was distracted in her conflict with the White Wizard after his reveal. She gets better in the finale, and even becomes Haruto's successor in Section Zero.
  • Not So Different: She and Medusa are both emotionally dependent on the same person.
  • Power Of Hate: This is what she really runs on.
  • Revenge Before Reason: She will get revenge on Medusa, no matter what. Even if it means going to the White Wizard, while fully aware of some of the horrible things he's done.
  • Take Up My Sword: After Haruto leaves to go hide the Philosopher's Stone, she takes his place as the Wizard protector of Tokyo.

Tropes exclusive to him as Kamen Rider Mage

  • Foreshadowing: Kamen Rider Mage is nothing more than an overglorified mook. Looks like Toei is being lazy again, huh? WRONG! Mage is based off of a pawn, and that's all Fueki see's Mayu as, she isn't a powerful bodyguard like Haruto was supposed to be, all she was needed for was as a sacrifice for a second Sabbath. Her form as Mage represents Fueki's true colors.
  • Ring of Power: Like with the White Wizard, most of her rings seem to be copied from other wizards.
    • ''Driver On Ring': Calls upon the Mage's Belt. Visually identical to Fueki's, even down to the deeper tone.
    • Mage Ring: Activates the transformation into Kamen Rider Mage.
    • Connect Ring: Identical to both Wizard's and White Wizard's, it provides a link between two locations or people.
    • Barrier Ring: Allows Mage to create a strong defensive barrier. Again, identical to Wizard's Defend Ring and White Wizard's own Barrier Ring.
    • Teleport Ring: Allows Mass Teleportation. Same as the White Wizard's.
    • Gravity Ring: Exactly What It Says on the Tin. The same as Wizard's Gravity Ring, if he didn't just loan it to her to begin with.
    • Holy Ring: Releases holy light that severely damages Phantoms.
  • Weapon of Choice

    Yuzuru Iijima 
Live Actor: Shinta Soma

A young gate targeted by the phantom Sylphi. Driven to despair but manages to hold back his phantom. He eventually becomes the blue Kamen Rider Mage.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Thanks to the White Wizard. He beats the crap out of a hesitant Nitoh and kidnaps Mayu. He got better.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger
  • Refusal of the Call: Following the advice of Kosuke and Haruto, Yuzuru decides to doesn't want to be a wizard. Finding it too scary.
    • Kidnapped by the Call: White Wizard doesn't give two craps about that and kidnaps him.
    • And in #51, he accepts the call of his own will.
Advertisement:

    Masahiro Yamamoto 
Live Actor: Shingo Kawaguchi

A soon-to-be father targeted by the phantom Arachne. Driven to despair but manages to hold back his Phantom. He eventually becomes the green Kamen Rider Mage.

    Masanori Kizaki 
Live Actor: Naoki Kawano

The head of Section Zero who reluctantly helps out in the battle against the Phantoms.
