Film / Kamen Rider Drive Surprise Future

Go To
The summer movie of Kamen Rider Drive. It was released as a double feature alongside Shuriken Sentai Ninninger the Movie: The Dinosaur Lord's Splendid Scroll!.

It's business as usual at the SCU, when a mysterious man appears. He claims that he is Eiji Tomari - Shinnosuke's son from the 20 years in the future! According to him, in the next twenty years, the world will be conquered by the Roidmudes with the help of... Krim Steinbelt?! Shinnosuke finds it hard to believe that the means he uses to save humanity, and his partner, could possibly bring calamity upon it. Then the detective ends up seeing a mysterious, high-tech car. It's the successor to his Cool Car, the Tridoron - NEXTridoron! And its driver and passenger, Kamen Rider Dark Drive, came to the present to hunt Eiji down! What's even worse is Mr. Belt is malfunctioning! Will Shinnosuke be forced to bring down his Partner to save the future?

  • 108: Roidmude 108/Paradox is the main villain.
  • Bad Future: One apparently caused by the Drive System.

  • Big Bad: Future Roidmude 108.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: While on the run from the law and unable to use the Tridoron, Shinnosuke is forced to use the prototype of his Cool Car, the Proto-Tridoron. It is found in the original Drive Pit, which houses a plethora of classic and rare cars, making this an automobile museum in all but name.
  • Cool Car: The NEXTridoron, which is a customized AMG GT.
  • Disney Death: Eiji turns out not to be dead- but this is because he's actually Roidmude 108. Mr. Belt also gets the Robot Disney Death variation, by being restored from a backup in the Tridoron Key after Shinnosuke destroys the original.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Kamen Rider Ghost makes his debut in this movie, taking out a couple of Future Roidmudes before vanishing.
  • Fusion Dance:
    • The Big Bad, Roidmude 108, merges with his past self to become the Paradox Roidmude, who has the power to invoke a temporal paradox that causes a total Global Freeze around the whole world.

    • Drive in Type Special has shades of this trope. As Type Special, he becomes the combination of the present-day Drive and Dark Drive from the future, with the transformation sequence being like Shinnosuke transforming alongside a hologram of Eiji transforming into Dark Drive: Type Next, with the two coming together.
  • Holding Your Shoulder Means Injury: A visibly hurt Drive in Type Super Dead Heat evokes this on the movie poster.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: Thunderstorm has been used to:
    • Power-up Present Roidmude 108 to consciousness.
    • Transfer Krim from the Tridoron Key to the Future Drive Driver.
  • Mercy Kill: Shinnosuke kills Mr. Belt, at his own request, in order to stop him from becoming evil.
  • Never the Selves Shall Meet: This is actually Roidmude 108's main goal. He traveled back in time from 2035 in order to meet and fuse with his present-day, comatose self. This gave him enough power to evolve into the Paradox Roidmude.
  • No Backwards Compatibility in the Future: Subverted. Drive has no problem using Shift Car Next Special, which is from the future. Albeit, it did have to be slightly modified for the Type Special half to be functional.
  • Plot Hole: In spite of the movie fitting well into the continuity of the main show and the show seemingly fitting into the continuity of Ghost's show, the movie itself couldn't possibly be canon to Ghost's show as not only does it takes place before Ghost's show takes place, but Ghost couldn't have possibly have obtained the Newton icon by that point due to it first being obtained by him in the special crossover episode. Though one could make the case that Roidmude 108's tampering the time stream allowed this paradox to occur.
  • Reality Ensues: In order to fight without the Tridoron or Mr. Belt, Shinnosuke decides to rely on prototype equipment to fight instead. Not only is the equipment a lot less refined; it also gets him nearly killed due to the various flaws, especially considering the more futuristic technology he's facing off against.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Roidmude 108/Paradox was apparently imprisoned by his fellows and somehow released.
  • Super Mode: Super Dead Heat for normal Dead Heat, Type Special is the real Super Mode and 11th-Hour Superpower. Type Super Dead Heat is actually a subversion, as supplementary information shows that it is statistically weaker than Type Dead Heat in every waynote , and it shows.
  • Terminator Twosome: Eiji Tomari and Kamen Rider Dark Drive form one. Subverted, since Dark Drive is actually under "Eiji"'s control.
  • Time Crash: 108/Paradox's true plan is to cause a time breaking paradox that will allow him to cause one of these.
  • Time Paradox: The theme of the Paradox Roidmude. And how he evolves: future 108 fusing with his own past self to create one of these as part of his plan.
  • Time Travel: The villain travelled from the future.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Eiji's only link to his father is a tattered fragment of a necktie. To Shinnosuke's horror, he realizes it's the tie he's wearing right now.
  • Tron Lines: NEXTridoron is covered in such lines, as well as Dark Drive.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Eiji's main goal. The problem is, the wrong appears to be Mr. Belt himself. Actually, 108 is trying to Make Wrong What Once Went Right by combining with his past self.
  • Upgrade vs. Prototype Fight: All over the place. Kamen Rider Dark Drive/Type Special of the future is defeated by Roidmude 108, an android from a previous technological generation who was the last and most dangerous of his brethren to be created. Attempts made by the Kamen Riders of the present to fight Dark Drive fail miserably. The Proto-Tridoron is utterly thrashed by the NEXTridoron during a climactic chase scene because it's slower and doesn't have any weapons. Shinnosuke uses the technically more advanced Mach Driver Honoh with his old Tridoron Key to unlock Type Super Dead Heat, a form so painfully inferior to every other one seen so far that it can barely put up a fight against Type NEXT. However, the final battle has Shinnosuke using Type Special to defeat the Paradox Roidmude, who is even more powerful than he was when he beat Eji (the previous user of both Type NEXT and Type Special) as Roidmude 108, suggesting that under the right circumstances, the Prototype can in fact defeat the Upgrade.

The Roidmude Count: 37

How well does it match the trope?
