Full list of appearances
Destron Combatmen (デストロン戦闘員 Desutoron Sentōin) - Destron has an apparently limitless supply of soldiers. They wear identical black, masked uniforms with a white scorpion design. They serve whoever is in charge. Doktor G's soldiers wield knives, Baron Kiba's soldiers wield fang-shaped weapons, and Archbishop Tsubasa's soldiers wear robes similar to his unless they're in combat. It has been stated that these combatmen are actually clones created for Destron.
Destron soldier types
- Destron Racer Hell Corps (レーサー地獄部隊 Rēsā Jigoku Butai) - Motorcycle riders that were turned into Destron servants by Lens Ant. They were assigned to kill Shiro Kazami.
- Destron Ranger Corps (レインジャー部隊 Reinjā Butai) - Destron Legionnaires that received special training from Mantis Boomerang. After Mantis Boomerang was destroyed, they worked with Heater Cicada.
- Destron Autobike Corps (オートバイ部隊 Ōtobai Butai) - They appeared only in episode 27.
- Destron Combatwomen (女戦闘員 On'na Sentōin): They appeared only in episode 41.
- Destron Scientists (科学者戦闘員 Kagakusha Sentōin) - The scientists who are loyal to Destron. They appear similar to Destron soldiers, but their masks and uniforms are white, with red print, instead of black with white print. They wear white lab coats over their uniforms. They are rarely found outside of a Destron base.
- Great Leader of Destron's Bodyguards (首領親衛隊 Shuryō Shineitai) - They look like normal Destron soldiers, but they wear a brown military uniform over their Destron uniform that makes them resemble Nazi stormtroopers. Elite troops, they were able to give V3 a hard fight as he made his way to confront the Great Leader.
- Destron Combatmen Yummy (デストロン戦闘員ヤミー Desutoron Sentōin Yamī) - Cell Medal recreations of Destron Combatman appear as part of a Combatman Yummy (戦闘員ヤミー Sentōin Yamī) army, the product of Shocker Combatman In Sendo's desire for like-minded allies to defeat the Kamen Riders, based on the grunts from past villainous groups who fought against Kamen Riders, whom Sendo refers to as the "past generation combatmen" (歴代戦闘員 Rekidai Sentōin). They fight Kamen Rider OOO but are eventually all destroyed by Kamen Rider OOO Tajadol Combo's Magna Blaze Giga Scan.
Along with the Shocker Combatmen, known as the Dai-Shocker Combatmen, the Destron Combatmen served as henchmen of Dai-Shocker, an organization made up of all the enemies of the Kamen Riders. They were part of the Dai-Shocker army that was wiped out by a gathering of 25 Kamen Riders, as well as the revived Dai-Shocker assembled by Decade to wipe out the Super Sentai, ensuring the survival of the Kamen Riders. After Dai-Shocker's alliance with Dai-Zangyack was revealed, both organizations were wiped out by a gathering of Kamen Riders and Super Sentai.
Underground Empire Badan
The Destron Combatmen served as a secondary foot soldier force for the Underground Empire Badan. They were all defeated by the 15 Heisei Riders and 15 Showa Riders when they united to take down Badan.
