Kamen Rider Den- O

Kamen Rider Den-O (仮面ライダー電王, Kamen Raidā Den'ō?, Masked Rider Den-O1) is the seventeenth installment in the popular Kamen Rider franchise of tokusatsu programs. It is a joint collaboration between Ishimori Productions and Toei. It premiered 28 January 2007 on tv asahi.


Using the power of the Imagin and the Rider Pass, Ryotaro Nogami is able to travel to different times through the DenLiner. By traveling through time, he transforms into Kamen Rider Den-O, and fights monsters of all sizes, preventing them from altering the past to affect the present and future.

Pass System

The Rider Pass (ライダーパス Raidā Pasu) is a card-like pass that is used for granting access to the train known as the DenLiner. This process only works when the hour, minute, and second are the same, such as 12:12:12. Certain people, known as "Singularity Points" (「特異点」 "Tokuiten", literally a gravitational singularity), are able to exist outside time and some who can use the Rider Pass are able to use it to transform.

Rider Tickets (ライダーチケット Raidā Chiketto) are tickets that store information on Imagin. The tickets keep a record of the past date in which the Imagin has ventured and a figure of the Imagin when swiped over a person whose past has been violated by the Imagin.

Kamen Rider Den-O uses the Den-O System, and can swipe the Rider Pass across the Terminal Buckle (ターミナルバックル Tāminaru Bakkuru) of the Den-O belt, specifically the SetTouch (セタッチ Setacchi), to activate a transformation. He can also do this to achieve Form Switches (フォームスイッチ Fōmu Suicchi), and while transformed to perform a Full Charge (フルチャージ Furu Chāji, finishing attack). Up to four Imagin can be summoned by using the Rider Pass, and each allows for Den-O to change into a specific form. The red button allows for Momotaros and Sword Form. The blue button allows for Urataros and Rod Form. The yellow button allows for Kintaros and Ax Form. The purple button allows for Ryutaros and Gun Form. It is shown that Imagin that are used for the form changes temporarily take over a hosts' personality. Den-O is able to use the Rider Tickets by inserting them into the Rider Pass, allowing the the DenLiner to reach the time in which the Imagin has traveled to.

Kamen Rider Zeronos uses an unknown system that functions by sliding a card from the Rider Pass into slot of a camera-like belt buckle before turning a part of the buckle in a certain direction, allowing him to Form Switch into either of his two forms. Nothing else of this system is known at this time.

Kamen Rider Ga-O uses an unknown system that has yet to be revealed, but uses a golden Rider Pass. Not much is known at this time.
