- Kamen Rider Faiz
nihongo|Kamen Rider Faiz|仮面ライダーファイズ|Kamen Raidā Faizu (Φ) is a fictional suit of high-tech
power armorseen in the 2003- 2004 Japanese television series Kamen Rider 555. It is the first of the Rider Gears seen in the series. Its motif is based on the Greek letter (Φ) and a firefly.
The Faiz Gear was the second set of
Kamen RiderGear developed by the Smart Brain Corporation to protect the OrphenochKing. The Faiz Gear had less power than the original Delta Gear, but had a much greater functionality. Like most of the Rider Gears that Smart Brain developed, the Faiz Gear can only be worn by Orphenochs or humans implanted with Orphenoch DNA. Transforming into Kamen Rider Faiz burns Orphenoch DNA, so humans who have been implanted with this DNA will quickly run out and no longer be able to use the Faiz Gear (and probably die). Orphenochs may use the Faiz Gear more often (in their human form only), but their DNA breaks down with continued use, and they will die.
Its first known, and primary wearer is Takumi Inui. The Faiz Gear was stolen and utilized by Akai (Cactus Orphenoch), Naoya Kaido (Snake Orphenoch), and Takuma Itsurou (Centipede Orphenoch). Kusaka Masato used the gear once to trick Kiba and Takumi into thinking they betrayed each other. During the short time Takumi was going through a crisis, Kiba temporarily used the Gear until he returned. By the end of the series, the Gear was still intact.
nihongo|Takumi Inui|乾 巧|Inui Takumi was originally a human until he died when hit by a car as boy, ressurecting him as the Wolf Orphenoch and decided to use his new found power to protect humans, attending to save Ryuusei School students when their reunion turned into massacre caused by the Clover Four's Kitazaki. Since the incident, Takumi refused to transform and became a loner, bent on not getting into relationships with people out of fear of somehow betraying them, traveling without any self-confidence or lifelong dream of his own. He is also often teased by Mari for being a "nekojita" (Literally means "cat tongue"; someone who cannot stand food that is too hot or cold).
By present time, while at a restaurant, Takumi sees Mari there and follows the girl under the notion that the bag she carried was one stolen from him three days prior, demanding the bag from her when two of her traveling companions dissolved and she assumed he killed them. But when the true killer, the Orphenoch Hiroshi Izawa , reveals himself to take the Faiz Gear, Mari vainly attempts to use the Gear, putting it on Takumi who relcuantly becomes Faiz and kills the Stingfish Orphenoch. Once the police find his bag, Takumi ends with the Faiz Gear when he and Mari got their bags mixed, coming to her aid when she is attacked by the Elephant Orphenoch before Mari guilt trips him into stick with her. But once learning she was faking her injuries, Takumi ditches her, causing a laundry van to crash, with the pursuing Mari forced to help its driver Keitaro deliever the ludy. It was only by helping Keitaro, Mari manages to find Takumi at a laundromat. But when the Orphenoch bounty hunter Aoki appears, Takumi uses the Gear to kill the Ox Ophenoch with Keitaro witnessing the fight, later stealing the Faiz Gear to use it to save people. However the incident results with Orphenoch bounty hunter Akai taking the Faiz Gear and using it to his own ends until Autovajin cancels the Faiz Gear so Takumi can reclaim it and kill the Cactus Orphenoch, deciding to keep the Faiz Gear and the Autovajin, though very apathetic towards his 'duties' as Faiz when there is no immediate threat.
Arriving at Tokyo, after Mari gets no reply from her father, Takumi sugessts they head to Smart Brain to find him, only to not to meet Mari's guardian. But after getting a traffic fine, much arguing, Mari descides to borrow money from Keitaro to pay Takumi's fine on the condition to her pay back by working part time at Keitaro's shop. Later, when the Orphenoch Eiiji Toda chases after him and Mari once killing the master at the coffee shop he worked at, Takumi admits his flaws before Keitaro arrives in time with the Faiz Gear and Takumi uses to kill the Squid Oprenoch. Deciding to help Mari, Takumi attempts to vainly steal a Smart Brain pass from Yuji Kiba, who refuses to press charges. Later, Takumi encounters the Snake Orphenoch and attempts to fight him until the Horse Orphenoch charged in to aid him.
Once transformation is completed, the Faiz Armor has several key features in its design to offer protection to the user. Like all gear, the Faiz armor manifests when the Faiz Driver generates Photon Blood, A glowing substance generates the soft Sol Foam suit, Sol Metal armor, and Fullmetal Lung chest armor via traveling through the red "Photon Streams" that ends at the "Photon Terminals" at the gauntlets and Power Anklet
greaves, the right Anklet having a Energy Holster that the Faiz Pointer can be connected it. The helmet is unique due to its Global Feeler antenna to link up to Smart Brain's networks and Ultimate Finder visor that gives Faiz incredible vision to see in darkness, giving the illusion of a glowing eye, and a limited amount of x-ray vision.

Accel Form is a form where Faiz can now move at the
speed of soundfor usually 10 seconds, his physical attacks also becomes 1.5 times stronger and he can perform a new variety of his regular finishing techniques. The wear must be in Faiz’s basic form to transform, with the Faiz Accel watch attached, transfering the Accel Memory from it to the Faiz Driver. When this is complete, the Full Metal Lung chest plates will rise out of their recesses and rotate from the scapula to form shoulder pads and reveal the Faiz Core in the center of the chest. The Sol Foam remains black, while the Photon Streams turn silver and the Ultimate Finder turns red and "Start Up" begins. Once Faiz has reverted after "Time Out", the Mission Memory keys are returned to their respective holders. The transformation usually fatigues Faiz and has never been done 2 times in the same scene. This ability was used mainly by Takumi, the suit's predominant user, though Yuji used it once when he took over temporarily as Faiz.

Blaster Form) is a most powerful form of the Faiz suit, the amount of Photon Blood that the Faiz Gear produces increases to the extreme where it overflows from the Photon Streams and spread itself over the Sol Foam and the Sol Metal, changing their color to red. Faiz also receives a new, more powerful, set of Full Metal Lung with a backpack like device attached to it called 'Photon Field Floater that releases constant waves of Photon energy to give Faiz Blaster flying capacities. By focusing the release patern however, the thrusters of the Photon Field Floater can be used as powerful energy shooters called Bloody Cannons. In Blaster Form, Faiz inputs all his codes directly on the Faiz Blaster.

Gear & Accessories
The Faiz Gear is a collection of seemingly normal items developed by the Smart Brain corporation based on a few element, the Faiz Mission Memory. A small metallic card key with the Faiz symbol on it, the Mission Memory can be inserted into certain Faiz Gear, turning the item into a powerful weapon. The Gear is usually stored inside a Smart Brain secured
Designated "SB-555B", this transformation device was developed by Smart brain as a mean to protect the Orphenoch King. The Faiz Driver was designed for specific compatibility with the Faiz Phone, generating the photon streams that form the Faiz Armor when the Mission Memory is installed into the phone. If the belt is removed, the armor dissolves.
Designated "SB-555P", this
cellphonedevice is the control unit of the Faiz Gear, the primary storage place for a Mission Memory as transgenerator that powers the Faiz Gear or the Faiz Accel Form by dialing the activation code.

Designated "SB-555C", this digital camera-like device was developed by Smart brain as a mean to protect the Orphenoch King. The Faiz Shot was designed for specific compatibility with Faiz Mission Memory, transforming into an energy powered knuckle-duster that Faiz can use his "Grand Impact" punch attack.

shotgun(Photon Blaster Mode or "BLASTER MODE") or a thick bladed lightsaber-like weapon (Photon Breaker Mode or "BLADE MODE"). While in Blade Mode, the Faiz Blaster can also be used in place of the Faiz Pointer to shot a stream of energy and perform a similar, but more powerful Execeed Charge called "Blaster Smash". The Faiz Blaster is too big to be stored in the Smart Brain briefcase, so it is usually tied to the back of the Autovajin's motorcycle mode.

Designated "SB-555V", the
Autovajinis an artificially intelligent motorcycle developed by SmartBrain, designed especially as a back-up for Faiz. However, the Autovajin's number one objective is to protect Mari from harm even if her attacker is Faiz. In its default Vehicle Mode, Autovajin's tires are made of Sol Rubber and the main chassis and plating is made from a similar substance to that of the Rider Gears. The Autovajin also has a humanoid Battle Mode, possessing the Buster Wheel handgun form from the front wheel in Vehicle Mode and can fly like a helicopter by using the Scramble Rotor on its back. The Autovajin was destroyed by the OrphenochKing in the final episode of the TV series and by the Elasmotherium Orphenochin the alternate ending movie Paradise Lost.
Designated "SB-555H", the Faiz Edge is one handed
lightsaber-like weapon whose blade is made of "Sol Glass" and can be used to initiate the "Sparkle Cut", where Faiz fires an anti-gravity pulse along the ground (which can immobilize ground based enemies, by levitating them in the air) and over charge the energy in the blade, allowing it to perform more powerful cuts. It's important to notice that the damage is not caused by the blade itself, but by the energy that it discharge once in contact with the target. While in Accel Form, the Execeed Charge attack is enchanced into the Accel Sparkle Cut, allowing Faiz to slash multiple enemies while running through them.
Takumi used this a jet powered combat bike once as Faiz while fighting Kitazaki using the Delta Gear's Jet Sliger, but it was destroyed mainly due to Takumi's inexperience in handling the vehicle.
