The Battle Hopper (バトルホッパー Batoru Hoppā) is a living motorcycle used by Kamen Rider BLACK. It was created by Gorgom, made specifically for the upcoming Creation Kings Black Sun and Shadow Moon. When Kotaro Minami was ambushed by the members of Gorgom during his escape, he drives the Battle Hopper and finally got away from Gorgom headquarters. The Battle Hopper has the ability to heal its own wounds if damaged, and can stand on its own if knocked over. His special move is the Dynamic Smash, a body slam attack that is executed at full speed. Before the finale, because Battle Hopper is connected to the King Stones, it was controlled by Shadow Moon due to this connection until Black used his King Stone Flash to disconnect the two. After taking heavy damage and suicide ramming itself towards Shadow Moon, it thanked Kotaro for everything and seemingly died. It then reappeared in Black RX due his strong connection to Kotaro's King Stone which caused it to be resurrected as Acrobatter in response to the Sun King Stone's evolution.

Battle Hopper ('88 Manga)

Battle Hopper in the Kamen Rider Black Manga

Battle Hopper was introduced in the 7th chapter of the 1988 Kamen Rider Black manga. It was created by a motorcycle manufacturer named Daimon, who was a fan of the original Kamen Rider series and created the bike as a pet project. (Which is both ironic and meta as a Kamen Rider exists in this universe too.) The bike is depicted as being sleeker than its TV counterpart and has a 2,000cc motor with an internalized computer.

Behind the scenes


  • The Acrobatter's name is taken from "Acrobat", Battle and "Batta" (Japanese for grasshopper).
