Kamen Rider Diend

Kamen Rider Diend (仮面ライダーディエンド Kamen Raidā Diendo?) is a fictional character in the 2009 Kamen Rider Series Kamen Rider Decade. In 2010, he is the main character of one of the Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider The Movie: Cho-Den-O Trilogy films. His name comes from the English words "die" and "end"[1] as well as the phrase "The End".

Daiki Kaito

Daiki Kaito (海東 大樹 Kaitō Daiki?, portrayed by Kimito Totani) is a mysterious young man who is portrayed as being cheerful to the extent of being annoying to those around him, but becomes serious in battle and sees material objects as more important than anything else. Narutaki, aware that Daiki is Diend, avoids getting in his way. He also appears to know about Tsukasa's past, referring to sea cucumbers as being something Tsukasa had always wanted to taste. He travels from A.R. World to A.R. World, stealing what he refers to as "treasures". Daiki's surname is a homophone of the Japanese word kaitō (怪盗?, phantom thief), a role he fulfills in Decade. In some materials in Decade, Daiki's surname is spelled in English as "Kaitoh" rather than "Kaito".

It is revealed that he comes from an A.R. World (referred to as the "World of Diend") where he was an officer who served the evil Fourteen who has deemed Kamen Riders as threats to the public peace. Daiki hunted them down and turned them in for education until he captured the leader of the Kamen Riders: Kamen Rider Glaive. When Glaive is unmasked, he is revealed to be Daiki's older brother Junichi. By then, Daiki learns the truth that Fourteen brainwashes people, powerless to stop him. Losing his self-confidence and seeking to undo all of the mistakes he had caused, Daiki stole the Diendriver from Dai-Shocker, becoming Kamen Rider Diend and Fourteen's new most wanted Kamen Rider. He leaves his world, traveling to other worlds and taking their treasures as a means of self-delusion until he crosses paths with Kamen Rider Decade.

Eventually, he does lackadaisically accept the Hikari Studio residents as "friends", even calling Decade a "comrade", though he is not beyond abandoning them without explanation, usually for his own self-interest. Eventually, he returns to his world, and along with Decade, finally frees it from Fourteen's tyrannical "peace", and settles matters with his brother. Afterwards, he plays a pivotal role in the defeat of Dai-Shocker, providing Decade with the Final Attack Ride Diend Card which allows the two to finally destroy Super Apollo Geist, as well as using the Final Form Ride Decade Card to allow Decade and Kamen Rider J to destroy King Dark. Following the Rider War and Decade's death, he assists in reviving Decade, first by holding off the Super Shocker army so a photograph of Tsukasa can be recovered, then by using his memories to help bring him back to life. Afterwards, he takes part in the final battle with Super Shocker and, following Ultimate D's demise at the hands of Decade and Double, returns to the Hikari Studio to continue his adventures with the group.

Returning to the World of Den-O during the events of Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, Daiki allows himself to become possessed by a Spider Imagin with a contract to meet Ryotaro. This is part of a scheme to travel back in time to November 22, 2008, and steal a gold-plated gun from the Kurosaki family estate, a heist he failed to perform due to the gun being damaged during his escape in 2008. Daiki's attempt to cause a time paradox attracts the attention of Reiji Kurosaki, the Time Police's Kamen Rider G Den-O. This sets in motion a series of events that would allow Daiki to complete his plan, by getting his past self accidentally hit by Kurosaki and retrieve the golden gun before it gets damaged, thus putting it into his possession while opening his pursuer's eyes to what he should value more. Though his past self steals the golden gun from him, Daiki obtains a K-Touch from Kurosaki and gains his own Complete Form.

Kamen Rider Diend

Diend only has access to a single form with cyan armor by using the Diend Kamen Ride Card in the Diendriver and then shooting the Diendriver above him. In this form, Diend can move extremely fast when he personally fights rather than use his Kamen Ride cards through the use of the microwave-emitting Tesla Bands (テスラバンド Tesura Bando?) around his wrists. Decade also has Tesla Bands, but does not use them.[2] Diend can also perform the Blue Strike (ブルーストライク Burū Sutoraiku?) Rider Kick. Unlike Decade, Diend does not need to use his corresponding Final Attack Ride Card to perform this attack.

Complete Form

In the Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider The Movie: Cho-Den-O Trilogy's Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, Diend gains access to his own Complete Form (コンプリートフォーム Konpurīto Fōmu?), similar to Decade's Complete Form. He wears the Diend Complete Kamen Ride Card on his helmet, embedded in the Diend Crown, and on his chest are 8 Kamen Ride Cards of the main antagonistic Kamen Riders from the Heisei Kamen Rider films (excluding those from the Den-O films).[3][4]

Equipment

Diendriver

The Diendriver

Daiki transforms into Diend through the use of the Transformation Loading Gun Diendriver (変身装填銃ディエンドライバー Henshin Sōtenjū Diendoraibā?) that functions like Decade's Decadriver, except for being able to be utilized as a normal firearm. To use a Rider Card, Diend places it inside the gun, loads it and fires it. Daiki usually fires the gun above him, sometimes in front of him to hit the opponent, in order to transform and activate other Rider Cards. He can also load multiple Rider Cards one right after another, causing all of them to activate at once when the trigger is pulled.[5]

Rider Cards

Like Decade, Diend possesses his own set of Rider Cards.[6]

Kamen Ride Cards

Unlike Decade who transforms into another Kamen Rider, Diend uses his Kamen Ride cards to summon other Kamen Riders. Diend is not limited to just the nine previous primary Kamen Riders, but has access to any Kamen Rider who has appeared in the Heisei period. The cards of secondary Riders, including his own, differ from Decade's main nine cards using a white background as opposed to a black one. Eventually, Diend is able to summon Riders from the Showa period as well. Diend has summoned, at most, three Kamen Riders at once.

  • Diend (ディエンド Diendo?): This standard card transforms Daiki into Kamen Rider Diend. When used by Kamen Rider Decade Complete Form, it enables Decade to perform his version of Diend's Dimension Shoot (ディメンションシュート Dimenshon Shūto?). Narutaki presents Daiki with a Diend Power Up Kamen Ride Card that will make Diend stronger for the sole purpose of destroying Decade. Unlike the original card, it has a yellow background instead of a white one.

  • Ixa (イクサ Ikusa?): Summons Kamen Rider Ixa in Burst Mode. First used in the World of Kabuto to battle Kamen Rider Kabuto. When he is summoned he first says "Return that life you took to God!"

  • Psyga (サイガ Saiga?): Summons Kamen Rider Psyga. First used in the World of Kabuto to battle Kamen Rider Kabuto. When he is summoned he first says "It's Show Time!" (イッツ・ショウタイム! Ittsu Shō Taimu!?).[15]

Like the Ouja Kamen Ride Card, a Kaixa (カイザ Kaiza?) Kamen Ride Card is included with the Deluxe Diendriver toy.

Attack Ride Cards

  • Diend Blast (ディエンドブラスト Diendo Burasuto?): Grants the Diendriver rapid fire capabilities. Unlike Decade's version, Diend's shots are able to arc, curve, and seemingly track targets.
  • Invisible (インビジブル Inbijiburu?): Allows Diend to turn invisible, allowing him to escape from a fight he tires of.
  • Crossattack (クロスアタック Kurosuatakku?): Causes two summoned Riders to perform their finishing moves against one target. Used once with Delta and Drake.[9]
  • Illusion (イリュージョン Iryūjon?): This creates multiple copies of Diend, each capable of combat.[21]
  • Barrier (バリヤー Bariyā?): Allows the Diendriver to project a shield.[18]
  • Gekijouban (ゲキジョウバン Gekijōban?): This summons the eight Riders that make up Diend Complete Form. "Gekijouban" literally means "Movie Version" (劇場版 Gekijōban?), as Movie Version Riders are used in the attack.

Final Form Ride Cards

Diend also has his array of Final Form Ride Cards. Where as Decade activates the Heisei Riders' Final Forms by reaching his hands into their back, Diend activates them by shooting the Rider in the back, commenting beforehand "This will only hurt for a moment."

  • Kiva Arrow (キバアロー Kiba Arō?): Transforms Kiva into a large Kivat-like bow with an arrow resembling Kiva's sealed Hell's Gate leg.[8]
  • Blade Blade (ブレイドブレード Bureido Burēdo?): Transforms Blade into a large sword similar to the Blay Rouzer.[10]
  • DenLiner (デンライナー Denrainā?): The original Den-O Final Form Ride card. This version is never used, but it is said that it can allow Den-O to become a copy of the DenLiner Gouka. Daiki shows that he has this card, but after Decade takes the card from him, it transforms into the Momotaros Final Form Ride Card.
  • Momotaros (モモタロス Momotarosu?): The new Den-O Final Form Ride card. Transforms Den-O into Momotaros.[16]
  • Decadriver (ディケイドライバー Dikeidoraibā?): In the film Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, this card allows Decade to transform into a giant version of the Decadriver called the Jumbo Decadriver (ジャンボディケイドライバー Janbo Dikeidoraibā?). It is used to allow Kamen Rider J to transform into Kamen Rider Decade Complete Form Jumbo Formation (仮面ライダーディケイドコンプリートフォームジャンボフォーメーション Kamen Raidā Dikeido Conpurīto Fōmu Janbo Fōmēshon?).[18]

Final Attack Ride Cards

These cards are Diend's most powerful attacks, used for finishing off enemies.

  • Diend: Diend performs the Dimension Shoot (ディメンションシュート Dimenshon Shūto?). Nine rings of cards showing the previous nine Heisei Riders appear before the Diendriver. Diend then sucks in any Riders summoned by his Kamen Ride cards before firing a shot from the Diendriver at the target, coming out as a green and black beam.
    • When used by Diend Complete Form, the Dimension Shoot becomes the Enhanced Dimension Shoot (強化ディメンションシュート Kyōka Dimenshon Shūto?) which shoots out a gold-colored beam of energy.
  • Kiva: With the Kiva Arrow, Diend performs the Diend Fang (ディエンドファング Diendo Fangu?) which fires the arrow, unfolding to hit the target in similarly to Kiva's Darkness Moon Break Rider Kick. Unlike Decade, who holds the arrow vertically, Diend holds it like a crossbow.[8]
  • Blade: With the Blade Blade, Diend performs the Diend Edge (ディエンドエッジ Diendo Ejji?) where the Blade Blade charges with electricity then Diend slashes the enemy, making a huge electric shockwave similar to Blade's Lightning Slash.[10]

Ongekibou Rekka

In conjunction with Decade and Hibiki's Final Attack Ride, Diend gains his own pair of blue Ongekibou Rekka which he uses with an Ongekiko similar to Kamen Rider Touki's Ongeki finisher.

K-Touch

During the events of Episode Yellow: Treasure de End Pirates, Reiji Kurosaki gives Diend his own K-Touch which allows him to transform into Complete Form. The Kamen Riders that power Diend's Complete Form are the main antagonist Kamen Riders from the films of the other Heisei Kamen Riders.[3][4] However, there is no choice for any of the antagonists from the Kamen Rider Den-O films, and there was no Kamen Rider Kuuga film; in their place, the antagonist from the (as of then only) Kamen Rider W film is an option. Unlike Decade's K-Touch, Diend is never seen using it to summon one of the movie Kamen Riders to perform an attack alongside him. Instead, he uses the Gekijouban Card to summon the eight movie Riders and initiate their finishing attacks, along with his own.
