The Scratching Loading Hinawa Daidai DJ Ju (スクラッチ装填火縄大橙ＤＪ銃 Sukuratchi Sōten Hinawa Daidai Dī Jei Jū?, lit."Matchlock Great Orange DJ Gun"), more commonly referred to as the DJ Gun, is the Armored Rider Arms Weapon granted either by accessing Kachidoki Arms or via the summoning ability of Kiwami Arms. It resembles an updated and futuristic Tanegashima rifle.
By scratching the disk-like DJ Table (ＤＪテーブル Dī Jei Tēburu?) apparatus, Gaim can enhance his shots, which are further subjected by the settings of the DJ Pitch (ＤＪピッチ Dī Jei Pitchi?) switch, which is set at Medium by default, but can also be set at either Low or High. To further enhance the shots, Gaim has to scratch the DJ Table once again, then pull the trigger to show the effect.
- Low: Cannon-like bursts
- Medium: Shotgun-like blasts
- High: Machine gun-like firing speeds
- Armored Rider Gaim
- Kachidoki Arms (Episodes 23, ToQger Vs. Gaim, Kamen Rider Taisen, 24-26, 28, 30-34, 36-37, Golden Fruits Cup!, 38-39, 41-42, 44-46, Final Stage)
- Kiwami Arms (Episodes 32-37, Golden Fruits Cup!, 39-41, 46, Movie War Full Throttle)
The DJ Gun can combine with the Musou Saber for the stronger Taiken Mode (大剣モード Taiken Mōdo?, lit. "Great Sword Mode"), making the Great Orange Blade (
The DJ Gun Taiken Mode can also combine with the Daidaimaru to create the even stronger Sojinto Mode (双刃刀モード Sōjintō Mōdo?, lit."Double-Blade Sword Mode"), though this was never shown on-screen and thus is exclusive to the toyline.
- Shooting Version
- Kachidoki Charge (カチドキチャージ Kachidoki Chāji?, lit. "Triumph Charge"): By locking the Kachidoki Lockseed, Gaim fires a large ball of energy at the enemy.
- Fruits Basket Charge (フルーツバスケットチャージ Furūtsu Basuketto Chāji?): By locking a normal Lockseed, Gaim fires a powerful blast surrounded by a projection of multiple fruits at the enemy, which envelopes and soon destroys the target.
- Hinawa Daidai Musou Zan (火縄大橙無双斬 Hinawa Daidai Musō Zan?, lit. "Matchlock Great Orange Unrivaled Slash"): Has two variations depending on how Gaim initiates the finisher.
- Kachidoki Charge (カチドキチャージ Kachidoki Chāji?, lit. "Triumph Charge"): By locking the Kachidoki Lockseed, Gaim ignites the blade in flames before unleashing a powerful slash on the enemy.
- Kiwami Au Lait (極(きわみ)オーレ Kiwami Ōre?, lit. "Extreme Au Lait"): After Gaim activates his Sengoku Driver's Au Lait function, he charges the blade with energy surrounded by image projections of fruits before slashing down the target. The fruit image projections scatter on impact.
- This is the second Arms Weapon to be a gun, with the first being the Budou Ryuhou.
- The DJ Gun is the first instance in the Kamen Rider series of a shotgun being used as a Rider weapon. Previous Riders have used either handguns, Gatling guns, cannons, lasers, or blasters.
- The DJ Gun has the same nickname as DJ Sagara, the creator of the Kachidoki Lockseed and, by extension, the weapon itself.
- The DJ Gun is the third weapon to include a slot for a Lockseed to be inserted in order to execute a finishing attack, with the first two being the Musou Saber and Sonic Arrow.
- However, of the three Lockseed slot weapons, this is the only one to be an Arms Weapon, as the Musou Saber and Sonic Arrow are both considered side weapons.
- The DJ Gun is somewhat similar to the Shining Caliber wielded by Kamen Rider Agito, as it is first wielded by the Rider's Super Form and also wielded by the Final Form. However, while the Shining Caliber has different modes for the two forms, the DJ Gun only has one mode by itself, discounting its combination with the Musou Saber.
