Roleplay / Henshin Heroes

Go To

Henshin Heroes is a tokusatsu-based RPG where you can use a canon character from a toku series, or craft an entirely new character from scratch. The RPG takes place in a world inhabited by Kamen Riders, Power Rangers, Sentais, Magical Girls, Makai Knights, Ultramen and any other tokusatsu hero you can think of.

This world isn't just inhabited by heroes though, there are villains too, like the ruthless Smart Brain corporation, which has recently risen up and started an underground war with the ancient organization known as the Hellfire Club. Opposing them both is the Wild Corp., an organization of Kamen Rider's led by Zack DeRagon, aka Kamen Rider Gattack who fight against injustice wherever it can be found.


Other groups include The Hellfire Club, who wish to take control of Britain with their army of various undead,; Section, an American funded group of Kamen Riders; and The Dekarangers, who have a rivalry with Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

A plot finally began to develop and was split into different seasons or story arcs. The first arc Humanity's Screams focused on Smart Brain as the main antagonists and beginning the foreshadowing of various future plots, ending with Section destroying Smart Brain.

The second arc known as The World's Heroes begins various singular plots around the world, focusing partially on Smart Brain attempting to restore itself, the beginning of Ren and Arthur's partnership, and the arrival of the forces of Heaven and Hell.

The third arc Everybody's Fight focuses on many factions fighting for control, and new forces rising up as a result. Many fights followed, beginning to shape the world for the next arc, World of Darkeness, in which Japan and Europe fall to different apocalypse situations, and everyone is thrown into combat.


The fourth arc is The Conflicting Souls of Light and Dark in which Azrael, the Angel of Death, is creating the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and attempting to bring on the downfall of humanity.

However, as the RP was recently rebooted, everything is once again starting from the very beginning.

Tropes present in the original RP forum.

    Henshin Heroes 1 tropes 
  • Aborted Arc - Originally after Marcel's soul being devoured and his body being controlled by a demon, his girlfriend, McKenzie, was to become a female version of Kamen Rider Sabre (which would have been reminiscent of Kamen Rider Femme). Instead she became the new Kamen Rider OOO.
  • Action Girl - Any female Rider / Ranger. Rei as Ultraman Nexus as well.
  • Actor Allusion - The IC forum games do this to a hilarious extent, especially in the Snapshot Observation game.
  • After the End - The idea behind Apocalypse London and Dark Moon Rising.
  • All There in the Manual - Rescue Force, Rescue Fire, Rescue Aqua, and the Rescue Police/Police Warriors tech and machine lists, as well as the Geistron Pirate Empire hierarchy. Future Cybercorporations is the same; all in another profile. The Hathaway Foundation has all of their tech also included in their own profile, a handful of which has yet to appear in the main game.
  • Always Save the Girl - Max Taggart/Kamen Rider Agito saving Candice and Marcel Labat/Kamen Rider Arms saving McKenzie.
  • Anachronic Order - Has shades of this, some RP's get finished before the ones set before.
  • Anchored Ship - Yuki and Bridge, according to Yuki.
  • Ancient Conspiracy - The Hellfire Club has elements of this but they've been around since the 1700's making them less ancient than many other Ancient Conspiracies.
  • And I Must Scream - Marcel, after having his soul devoured by the demon he made a pact with. His soul is sitting in an unretrievable limbo in the demon's stomach, subject to an eternity of torment.
  • Animal Motifs: One of the primary elements of the Greeed and OOO. With three animal Medals at a time, OOO's can access a wide range of powers. default mode is Hawk-Tiger-Grasshopper; Taka-Tora-Batta in Japanese, "TaToBa" for short. Overlaps with Mix-and-Match Critters.
    • Ankh: Birds; Hawk, Peafowl, Condor.
    • Uva: Insects; Stag Beetle, Mantis, Grasshopper.
    • Kazari: Large felids; Lion, Tiger, Cheetah.
    • Gamel: Strong, heavy mammals; Rhino, Gorilla, Elephant.
    • Mezool: Aquatic animals; Orca, Electric Eel, Octopus.
    • Ren also has a bird motif in his Raven Orphnoch form.
    • The Enviii have this as well, each one runs on three "Core Keys". Though unlike the Greeed their form only has one visible motif.
      • Jyari has a Shark as his primary motif with a Manta Ray and Electric Jellyfish as his second two.
      • Gurinu, the forest Enviii, is designed to look like a deer with his other keys being An Owl and a Red Fox
      • Furizu's got a Polar Bear as his primary key and his second two being Narwhal and Arctic Fox
      • Dogu plays the animal motif thing up more than the other, her main key is the Jackal while her second two are Hyena and Fennec Fox. Her monsters also tend to be some sort of wolf.
  • Anti-Villain - Cain Bullion / The Skull Man and Rupert Smythe/Black Knight
  • Anyone Can Die - Marcel, Thomas, Whip.
  • Apocalypse How - So far we've only seen two Class 0's; Apocalypse London and the Jamanga Invasion (Dark Moon Rising)
  • Artistic License – Biology - Drones. You can't have something with only one DNA base! Handwaved because Kyle says that it "... should be impossible".
  • Ascended Extra - McKenzie becoming Kamen Rider OOO after being a side character.
  • Attack Reflector - OOO and her Taja Spinner; it absorbs the power of any attack that hits it, and redirects the power into a new fireball, using flames and the original power at once. It remains to be seen if 000's can use his Spinner for the same effect.
  • Attempted Rape - One of Sakura/ Dekabreak's former teammates attempts to assault her but Jasmine and Bridge come in to save her in the nick of time. Happens again when Marcel fights and defeats McKenzie, who was his girlfriend when he was human. He attempts to rape her before killing her, but Mezool helped her out in time.
  • Badass Biker - Most of the Kamen Rider's have bikes, as you might expect.
  • Badass Family - The Miyazaki family, whether or not you include friends of the family.
  • Badass Normal - Kyle Cross, no powers, no weapons past pistols and he still goes up against Dopants and Angels.
  • Bad-Guy Bar - Club Clover
  • Bar Brawl - Kenneth Frost has gotten into a couple of these, particularly with the Fallen Rangers and Johnny Blaze.
  • Battle Couple - Hoji and Jasmine.
    • Joe and Ahim may count as well.
    • Nakida and Kyle were a subversion of sorts since Kyle didn't know that he was fighting alongside Nakida (As she was Kamen Rider Rose during the fights).
  • Becoming the Mask - The real Ren who works for Rescue Force was copied by a Worm who eventually believed that he was the real Ren and forgot that he was a Worm. Jack Moon also counts; he forgot that he was a Jamanga and completely assumed his guise...until he got into space.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension - Shigeru Jo and Yuriko Misaki (Stronger and Tackle) in spades.
  • Big Bad - Right now it seems to be in contest between Jack Moon of the Jamanga and Sir Peter Mantis and his Hellfire Club and whose apocalypse is bigger and more successful. Though Mantis has had more preparation time, Jack Moon has a good shot at conquest for someone who just spent months in space.
    • Also, Azrael the angel of death is shaping up to be a damn good one ...
    • Foundation X could be this, according to their manipulative abilities as seen in The Foundation X Connection.
    • William Paragon (Kamen Rider Nazca) is this for the Rider Army.
  • Big Brother Mentor - Worm Ren is this to Arthur.
  • Black-and-Gray Morality - Section in spades, after their slaughter of Smart Brain and the Orphnochs. Most of them innocent and unable to defend themselves.
  • Blood from the Mouth - Hoji
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick - Smart Brain Headquarter's description (Though it technically doesn't exist any more): The main offices of Smart Brain, where the corporation deal with Shipping, Manufacturing, Lawsuits and the evil plan to overthrow humanity and replace them with the hyper-evolved Orphnoch race.
  • Broken Bird - Sakura, arguably.
  • Brotherhood of Funny Hats - Members of the Hellfire Club wear red hooded cloaks.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer - Bridge and Kougami
  • Canada, Eh? - Averted, the Canada that the Fallen Rangers hail from borders on a Wretched Hive.
  • Canon Foreigner - There's a mix of completely original characters (Kamen Rider Avon, Kamen Rider Forever, Fallen Rangers), canon characters (Kamen Rider Decade and Kamen Rider Joker), canon characters with original forms (Hoji was "DekaSky" in this world) or original characters whose transformed forms are canonical (Susan Cross as Kamen Rider Drake, William Mercer as Kamen Rider Scissors)
  • Captain Geographic: Kamen Rider Excelsior is this for America.
  • Car Fu - The Hood Racer's draw power from their cars.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue - Trenton Richard speaks very matter-of-factly, even when he's standing on a massive Worm hive.
  • Character Blog - Elizabeth's Twitter counts as one, though it's meant to be a blog. Some roleplayer was too lazy to play this trope straight.
  • Chest Insignia - OOO especially, but any Rangers also quality, no doubt along with other Riders as well.
  • Christianity Is Catholic - Averted The Fallen Rangers and their nemesis Azrael both have ties to the Anglican Church.
  • Clock Punk - The Hathaway Foundation use tiny clockwork insects to fight.
    • Then there's the Enviii, who are tall, aggressive clockwork robots designed to look like animals.
  • Cold Sniper - Hoji/DekaBlue
  • Combo Platter Powers: A literal and highly expanded case: OOO and 000 are able to choose their own combos by switching out the Core Medals as desired/required.
    The Medal names in italics are their Japanese names used in the series; yes, some are directly English. These are also the pure forms as used by OOO and 000.
  • Conspicuous Trenchcoat - Ren after he turned into an Orphenoch. He got better.
  • Corrupt Church - Double Subverted, Saint Andrews The Redeemer is working with demons but they're doing so to save the world from Angels which are being lead by the regional Bishop.
  • Cynicism Catalyst - Clive's cousin Elizabeth was killed by a future Den-O to make him a better hero. It didn't work, instead sending him into depressive mourning, to the point of allowing Azrael to kill him and giving him an Evil split personality.
  • Deal with the Devil - Marcel Labat made one so that he could get a replacement driver. And after extending his deal, it came time to quickly pay up and lose his soul, resulting in the demon becoming Marcel/Kamen Rider Arms.
    • Basically the Fallen Ranger's origin story.
  • Death by Origin Story - Terui Ryu's family and Yuuga's girlfriend, Rei.
    • And Suzie's family.
    • Jackson's brother ... there's a lot of these.
  • Death by Sex - One thread starts with Kenneth waking up in bed with two dead people.
  • Defrosting Ice King - Hoji, arguably, after spending time with Bridge. He's pretty much completely unfrosted now, thanks to Bridge and Jasmine.
  • Demonic Possession - Marcel was possessed after his Deal with the Devil.
  • Depraved Bisexual - Suzanne Cross, as opposed to her alternate dimension partner (Susan Cross) who's just bi.
  • Did Not Get the Girl - Max, initially.
  • Diner Brawl - Suzie Cross/Kamen Rider Drake and Marcel Labat/Kamen Rider Sabre against Thomas Reagan/Kamen Rider OOO.
    • Really it's more of a "Cafe Brawl".
  • Discard and Draw - Marcel, losing Sabre and quickly gaining Arms.
  • Doppel Ganger - Ren/Kamen Rider Avon and Arthur/Kamen Rider Sonnet meeting...Ren/R1 during a battle. Avon being the copy, making the late appearing original Ren into a true Expy of the original character.
  • Doppelgänger Spin - Arthur's Cesario Trigger Key splits him into two people.
  • Elemental Powers - The Greeed and OOO and by extension, 000.
    • Blow You Away - Kazari; he has some kind of vortex attack. 000 has JagAnsOu, or specifically, the Jaga Medal.
    • Dishing Out Dirt - Gamel; his Core Medals, specifically the Elephant Medal, reflect this. SaGoZo gives OOO the power to control the ground to pull her opponent in for the Finishing Move. 000 and UGoSu can also use these abilities.
    • Light 'em Up - The Lion Medal is able to blind enemies.
    • Make Me Wanna Shout - The Orca Medal can emit and receive sonic waves, as can 000's Dolphin Medal.
    • Making a Splash - Mezool; she can shoot water from her hands. The Electric Eel Medal can shoot water from its hands. ShaUTa is able to change into a liquid state. 000 has IruKurAken.
    • Playing with Fire - Ankh; his Core Medal's Combo form, TaJaDor, also reflects this. RaToraTah can emit scorching heat. The Taja Spinner is able shoot fireballs. 000 has WaYabUri.
    • Shock and Awe - Uva; he can shoot green light. The Stag Beetle Medal can generate lightning from its horns. The Electric Eel Medal equips OOO with two electric whips. 000 can use his corrupted version of Gatakiriba, KabuKashiBa to do the same. His Jellyfish Medal also creates whips.
      • Also Shotaro he's got the Heat, Luna and Cyclone memories to give him an elemental kick when fighting. Jack's stolen a couple of these and has a few other elemental memories of his own.
      • Nago and Hikaru - Kamen Rider Double - have the same abilities, along with Aqua.
  • Emotionless Girl - Satonaka

  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French - Suzie's first thoughts about Marcel.
  • Expy - Multiple:

      • Alternatively, Marcel Labat/Kamen Rider Sabre/Arms is being expied over to that forum soon to replace Ren.
    • Kyle Cross is an Expy of sorts of Kenneth Walker Cross and Sakura Ryuzaki of the Hathaway Foundation on the same site.
    • Nakida Sassu and Kaisu Sanryu of yet a third player; all from the same site.
    • Waylon Ciers is an Expy of Keisuke Nago in most of his personality and clothing, just a change in the fact that he's a Fangire and his race, being British instead of Japanese.
    • Sanyu Miyazaki is an one of multiple characters of the same name, from a majority of different RPs.
  • Eye Scream - Chinomanako's finishing move involves stabbing a hypodermic into someone's eyeball. This then infects them with a virus that causes black eyes, Tears of Blood and then your eyes to explode.
  • Finishing Move: Arguably all of the characters.
  • Flat-Earth Atheist - Kenneth Frost, has personally met and fought demonically powered characters a couple of times now but keeps denying that demons are real. Granted he has a Hell of a Freudian Excuse for opposing religion.
  • Fun with Acronyms - Kamen Rider PROSE stands for Proto-Sonnet Engine.
  • Gender Bender - Happens to Sanyu due to some freak magical accident caused by his sister. Needless to say, he was not amused.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop - Bridge tries this once, but does it alone. Later he and Hoji try this, but Bridge comes in late and plays the wrong role.
