Emu Hojo (宝生 永夢 Hōjō Emu), also known by his gaming persona M, is a 24 year-old pediatrics trainee at Seito University Hospital, and is one of the main characters in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. He transforms into Kamen Rider Ex-Aid (仮面ライダーエグゼイド Kamen Raidā Eguzeido), tasked with eliminating the Bugster virus from an infected patient to save their life.

Character History

Past

Childhood

When he was only eight years old, Emu was involved in an accident, leaving him critically injured. After receiving an emergency surgery, Emu was given a WonderSwan handheld video game device by one of the doctors as a reward for hanging on. This event would inspire Emu to become a doctor and help children like the one who saved him, Kyotaro Hinata.

Emu had an interest in video games at a young age, which he had a natural talent for. He also created game concepts, including Mighty Brothers XX, in order to lessen the burden of being alone.

He became a fan of the games produced by Genm Corp. at a very young age, and had sent fan letters to one of its programmers, Kuroto Dan, which had included ideas for new games. Furious that someone who could create game concepts on par with him, Kuroto sent Mighty Action C, a game in-development which, unknown to anyone but Kuroto, had been infected with the Bugster Virus, which subsequently infected the boy.

Teenage Years

Genius Gamer M

Emu during his fame as "M".

Emu would later go on to win numerous gaming tournaments under the gaming alias of M. Sometime in 2010, Emu participated in a gaming tournament and trained vigorously for it at the cost of his health. Unknown to him, Kuroto watched his victory in the shadows, having watched Emu for a decade. Shortly after, Emu was abducted by the Next Genome Institute, who had been hired by Kuroto to remove the now-mature Bugster virus from Emu's body. Shortly after the operation, the members of the Next Genome Institute vanished. Emu would believe that the operation was nothing more than a dream. Following the incident, he decided to take a serious attitude in his entrance exam and pursue being a doctor. However, the leftover Bugster virus in his body would create a split personality that represented his gaming interest. The Bugster virus that had been extracted would be used as the basis for the virus used for Zero Day a year later.A New Challenger Appears!

Sometime later, his fame as "M" would earn the interest of Asuna Karino as a potential candidate for using the Gamer Driver.

Becoming Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

Emu discovers Game Disease

Using CR's Game Scope, Emu discovers the Game Disease.

Emu eventually became a pediatrics intern at Seito University Hospital. After it is learned that his patient, Sota Suyama, is diagnosed with an unusual disease, he is restricted from knowing more by Director Haima Kagami. Emu deduces that Sota's stress may be related to being confined in the hospital and unable to see the release of the awaited video game, Mighty Action X. As a result, Emu takes him to see its release but is scolded by Asuna, telling him that he fails as a doctor for his unauthorized release of Sota. When Asuna tries to force Sota to return back, his condition worsens and he transforms into a golem-like creature.

Emu 1st henshin

Taking the Mighty Action X Gashat, Emu transforms for the first time.

Emu learns about Sota's condition of being infected with the Bugster Virus, a potential lethal computer virus that infects human, and can be prevented by someone who is capable of using the Gamer Driver to successfully operate on the patient. Determined to save his patient, Emu took the driver, the accompanying Mighty Action X Gashat without Asuna's consent to combat the Bugster. Much to Asuna's surprise, Emu was able to transform as he reveals that he was in fact, the prodigy gamer "M" that she was looking for.

He extracts Salty from Sota and transforms into Action Gamer Level 2, defeating the Bugster. After confirming Sota's health, he becomes part of the CR and Asuna reveals to him that her true identity is a Kamen Rider navigator, Poppi Pipopapo. She christened Emu as Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. I'm a Kamen Rider!

At the request of Kuroto Dan, Emu entered the CR patient room where he was to undertake a simulation as the Action Gamer. Given Dan's VR device by Poppi Pipopapo, Emu was clueless as to how he would start only to enter the simulation having been knocked out by Poppi. Within the simulation, Emu was faced with generic Bugster Virus grunt. Instructed by Poppi, Emu transformed into Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Action Gamer from Level 1 to Level 2 before activating his Critical Strike finisher using the Kimewaza Slot Holder. Having cleared the simulation, Emu received no explanation for why he had to take this test as Poppi left, attempting to go after her only to stumble from the bed. Ex-Aid Chapter

As the battle against the Bugster Viruses continues, Emu would later met several Kamen Riders like him, such as the genius surgeon Hiiro Kagami (Brave), former CR acquaintance Taiga Hanaya (Snipe) and the coroner Kiriya Kujo (Lazer). Although the three Riders as well fought against Bugster threats and infections, Emu is constantly at odds with them as each had their own viewpoints and ulterior motive. Another Prodigy with No Thank You? BANG, That Jerk is Coming! An Operation Called Dash! He also faced against Genm, a Rider who allied himself with the Bugsters and at the same time adding another Gashat, Gekitotsu Robots to his arsenal. Everyone Gathers for a Clashing Crash! In the final battle against Graphite, Emu acquired the Drago Knight Hunter Z and is able to work in synchronization with the other Riders through this power. Uneven Doctors!

Meeting Kamen Rider Ghost

Two conflicting accounts exist of Ex-Aid's first encounter with Kamen Rider Ghost, Takeru Tenkuji.

Encounter with Ayumu

Ghost & Ex-Aid

Ghost & Ex-Aid

Searching for the Shakariki Sports Gashat which he needed to save the world, Ex-Aid arrived to fight a pack of Bugster Viruses which were being fought by Kamen Rider Ghost in defense of Ayumu, the mysterious boy who held the Gashat. Mistaken for an enemy by Ghost, whose friends had been attacked by his doppelganger, Ex-Aid found himself attacked but was quickly able to reason with his fellow Rider as he explained that he wished to save lives - the most important thing of all - by changing fate, a sentiment which was respected by Ghost. Alongside Ghost, Ex-Aid tended to Ayumu as they were attacked by his doppelganger, Kamen Rider Genm, who took the Gashat before leaving as soon as he came. Ghost apologized but Ex-Aid assured him that it was alright for now as Ayumu was safe. After defeating a further horde of Bugster Viruses together, Ex-Aid predicted to Takeru that they would meet again soon before leaving him an Ex-Aid Ghost Eyecon as a gift as he took his leave, with Takeru noting that he had connected to another person's feelings. Final Story (Special Edition): Future! Connected Thoughts!

Ex-Aid in The 100 Eyecons and Ghost's Fateful Moment.

Earlier from Ghost's perspective, Ex-Aid inexplicably appeared on the Island of Eyecons as Takeru Tenkuji and his friends were being pursued by the Gamma. His mere arrival extinguishing the Gamma Commandos, Ex-Aid introduced himself to Takeru before performing a successive Rider Punch and Kick to destroy a pair of Gamma Superiors. Allowing Takeru and company to get away, Ex-Aid faced off against Kamen Rider Dark Necrom B, whom he overpowered with a series of kicks and punches while empowered by the green Ex-Aid medals that accompany him before defeating the Dark Necrom with the Mighty Critical Strike.

It is revealed in the Heisei Generations film, that the Bugsters were actually born 16 years ago from the body samples of their very first victim and future Kamen Rider, Emu Hojo. Their birth from Emu's samples was the result of unrecorded experiments on Emu's body to breed stronger Bugsters before Emu obtains a Bugster antibody from Kyotaro Hinata's surgery on the young boy. Kamen Rider Heisei Generations: Dr. Pac-Man vs. Ex-Aid & Ghost with Legend Rider

Return of Dr. Pac-Man

Following the incident with Dr. Pac-Man, Emu was instructed by Dan to return the Kaigan Ghost Gashat. On his way to Genm Corp. with Asuna, Emu was met by a Collabos Bugster which wielded the power of the Proto Gashats and easily overwhelmed Ex-Aid when he assumed the Ghost Gamer Level 2 again. It was at this point where Dan arrived with a briefcase carrying further Kamen Riders' Gashats, providing Ex-Aid with the Full Throttle Drive which allowed him to disarm the Bugster of Proto Gekitotsu Robots. When the Bugster switched to the sword-wielding Giri Giri Chambara and grazed Dan, Ex-Aid appropriately received the Toukenden Gaim to engage it as Asuna took Dan to safety. After disabling the Bugster, Ex-Aid was confused to see what he recognized as the "black Ex-Aid" adopting the Wizard Gamer Level 2 before being swiftly defeated by the enigmatic Kamen Rider who announced that he had collected all the data he needed as he used the power of the Legend Rider Gashats to complete his Ganbarizing Gashat. Using the blank Collabos Bugster as a conduit to harness the power of Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing, a game Emu was unfamiliar with, Genm brought forth manifestations of Kamen Riders Double, OOO and Fourze. Advancing on Emu, the three Riders were held off by the sudden appearance of Dr. Pac-Man, coming as a shock to both Emu and Genm as he presented his own three Bandai Namco Gashats. Part. I: Legend Rider Stage

Taken away by Dr. Pac-Man, Emu was met by Hiiro and Taiga whom were both intent on defeating this revived "Dr. Pac-Man" while Emu began to trust him. When the three doctors were met by Genm and the three copy Kamen Riders that he had summoned, "Dr. Pac-Man" provided the trio with the Bandai Namco Gashats, with Emu receiving the Pac Adventure Gashat. Transforming, Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 2 faced Kamen Rider Fourze in a brief skirmish before using his new Gashat to assume Pac Action Gamer, generating a Game Area in which he finds himself pursued by Kamen Rider Double before reaching a Power Pellet which allowed him to turn the tables on Double who became a vulnerable ghost, performing Pac Adventure's Critical Strike to defeat the opponent Kamen Rider. Confused to be met with no Game Clear message, Ex-Aid returned to the real world where he saved Poppi Pipopapo from the berserk Collabos Bugster from whom he took out the Ganbarizing Gashat which he inserted into his Gashacon Breaker, performing a Critical Finish to destroy the Bugster. Despite this, both Ex-Aid and Poppi found that a Game Clear message has still not appeared. The Ganbarizing Gashat then suddenly ejected from the Gashacon Breaker on its own before entering the Game Area from which a figure began to emerge. Part. II: Legend Gamer Stage

Part. III: Final Legend Stage

Christmas Revelations

During Christmas Eve, Emu and the others learned of Genm Corp.'s CEO Kuroto Dan being Genm's true identity, proving Kiriya's innocence after being fooled once by Parad. It was also at that time he renew his trust on Kiriya after going through several lies and obtain the Shakariki Sports from Genm but their renewed friendship cuts short when Kiriya was killed by Genm Zombie Gamer Level X in hopes of preventing the truth from being revealed.

...which he transforms into Mighty Brothers XX after enduring the Game Disease.

In early 2017, Emu was promoted to the surgery intern by Haima Kagami himself. Kiriya's death affected his prowess in fighting the Bugster and was suspended by Hiiro to transform after the latter confiscated his Gashats. Parad approached Emu and gave the young intern his incomplete Gashat, which transformed into the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat, giving him the strength to counter Genm Zombie Gamer Level X with the same rank. He as well renewed his trust with Hiiro, but was cut short when both the latter and Taiga attack him due to being a Game Disease patient. His combat data as Mighty Brothers XX was utilized by Kuroto to create the Gashat Gear Dual that Parad utilized to assume Kamen Rider Para-DX, whose level outclassed even that of Genm and Ex-Aid.

Emu's furious reaction to Burgermon's murder.

"I'll cook a hamburger with No Continues!"
―Ex-Aid's proclamation in Level 4 before battle[src]

Whilst in the middle of a day off, Emu encountered the Burgermon Bugster while he was about to eat lunch. He chased it into a parking lot and encountered the one sick with the virus, before encountering Taiga and Parad. When questioned why it was he wasn't using the Mighty Brothers Gashat, Emu revealed that he left his other Gashats at home. The ill patient, a game developer who works at Genm Corp, supplied Emu with the Ju Ju Burger Gashat, which he promptly uses to transform into Burger Action Gamer Level 4. With his new form, Emu manages to fend Taiga off and save Burgermon in the process. A Nonstandard BURGSTER?

The Truth About His Game Disease, Finalizing the Gashat Gear Dual Beta

Ex-Aid 18

Emu's Bugster Virus kicks in after he finds out he's Patient Zero.

"Emu Hojo!!! How are you able to transform into Ex-Aid...without undergoing the compatibility surgery? How are you able to create Gashats?! Why does your head hurt after transforming?! There is only one answer. Emu Hojo! That's because...you were the very first person in the world...to be infected by the Bugster virus!"
―Kuroto Dan exposing the reason behind Emu's bizarre condition[src]
"I have...Game Syndrome? That's a lie! You're trying to trick me!"
―Emu Hojo refusing to accept the truth that he is Patient Zero [src]

In an effort to help Tsukuru after being infected yet again, Emu tries to defeat the spawned Bugster, Motors, only to be repeatedly interrupted by Kuroto, who is after his remaining Gashats, as he took away Taiga's. After another encounter, Emu is defeated by Genm, who demand for the remaining Gashats, to which the former refuses. Before he can kill Emu, Kuroto is attacked by Para-DX, who's fed up with his narcissism and how he looks down upon Bugsters. Finally defeated, Kuroto punishes Parad for his defiance by revealing to Emu that he is Patient Zero. After Emu denies it, the game disease inside him changes drastically, with Hiiro, Taiga, Asuna, and Nico watching in terror as Emu screams in pain.The Truth Exposed

Debut of Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50

Much to the members of CR, Taiga, and Kuroto's surprise, Emu did not disappear after he learned the truth, but rather fell unconscious. When he awoke, he greeted the CR crew casually, acting in his Genius Gamer M persona despite the fact that he was not playing a game. He starts playing Poppy's game expertly, though she doesn't like it, and even scares Haima. Eventually, they receive word that someone has been infected with the Bugster Virus. Hiiro tries, and fails, to convince Emu to give him his Gashat, in order to prevent him from transforming and suffering further from the effects of his own virus. When they arrive, Emu's eyes turn red, an effect common among Bugsters when they take hold of their host, which Hiiro notices immediately, and engages the Bugster when it emerges, transforming into Ex-Aid Robot Action Gamer Level 3 immediately. At first overwhelmed, he makes use of the power ups and turns the tables on his opponent, though he becomes agitated when it reverts back into its host to recover.

After returning to the CR, Emu once again plays Poppy's game, and when Hiiro questions him, Emu states that he doesn't care about the patient at all, even going on to say that this is who he was. However, Hiiro becomes angered and tells him that the person he should be is a doctor who invests in his patient in order to make them smile. This causes Emu to suffer from a headache. When the Bugster takes over and escapes, Hiiro takes Emu's Mighty Action X Gaschat and leaves to take it on. However, Emu takes it back and engages the Bugster, only to be attacked by Genm. The two easily overpower and force Ex-Aid back. Hiiro, however, manages to turn the situation around by using the same tactics as Ex-Aid earlier and use a Power Up to confuse the Fantasy Gamer, allowing him to take the Gashat Gear Dual β and transform into Kamen Rider Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50 for the first time by using Taddle Fantasy. At first being taken over by its power, Hiiro manages to regain control and states what it means to be a doctor, something that causes Emu to falter and suffer from another headache. His transformation is cancelled, and returns to his previous self.

After the battle is over, Emu apologizes for the trouble he has caused, though Hiiro dismisses him, telling him he should do what he should do as a doctor. A Sudden Fantasy!?

Encounter with Takeshi Asakura

Emu bloody

Emu is assaulted by Takeshi Asakura.

At Seito Hospital, Emu bumped into an unidentified man. Unbeknownst to him, he had been caught up in the plot of the enigmatic Foundation X, having had their own Level 4 Gashat, Night of Safari, slipped into his pocket. This led Emu to being confronted by the revived serial killer - Kamen Rider Ouja - Takeshi Asakura, who was after the Gashat as part of his sick "game" before becoming bored and proceeding to give Emu a savage beating. Emu would be found unconscious and badly injured by Hiiro, who took the Gashat still in his hand, using it to assume the Safari Gamer with which he defeated Kamen Rider Ouja and his Beast Rider Squad.

Debut of Snipe Simulation Gamer Level 50

In an attempt to trigger Emu's Bugster Virus, Hiiro activates his Taddle Quest Gashat to threaten the dwelling Bugster to no avail. CR is then alerted that there's an outbreak at the amusement park. While Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50 fights the Vernier Bugster, and later Parad, Emu attempts to wield his Mighty Brothers XX Gashat but is hesitant due to his fear of the disease. After the two Bugsters fallback, he and Asuna help their new patient, Daisuke, to get over his fear of thrill rides after mentioning he set up a date with a girl in his class. They go to the same park and go on all the rides, which drains both Emu and Daisuke. Unfortunately, Daisuke's Bugster surfaces due to him overhearing girls mock him. Kuroto unexpectedly Stage Selects them and himself. He takes note that Emu's reluctancy for transforming no longer poses a threat to him as he then uses his Dangerous Zombie Gashat and proceeds to kill him and Poppi. But, Taiga who has the Level 50 Gashat Gear Dual β, intervenes as Snipe Level 50 and engages with Vernier. Emu grabs his Gashat, and soon finds responsibility for his patients and himself included and fights Genm head on. He uses his Gashacon Key Slasher to finish Genm off, but he escapes yet again. Taiga lectures Emu for not leaving the fight, but the latter relays his duties as a doctor to him. But Emu is dragged off by Daisuke and Poppi to go on other rides as Taiga walks away. Take Off Against the Direction of the Wind!

An exhausted Emu returns to CR, due to Hiiro's intense surgical internship. Hiiro says that Emu's true talent is fighting off Bugsters which has Poppi reveal that she was to find the Genius Gamer as a recruit from Kuroto's request. They are soon alerted on another outbreak from an investigator named Heiji Uesugi. When they arrive, the virus releases the Kaiden Bugster. Brave with the Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat and Emu's Mighty Brothers XX fight the awakened Bugster as Genm, on the sidelines, deals with Snipe Simulation Gamer Level 50. Genm and Kaiden fall back. At CR, Useugi's insistence on leaving is due to his investigation on Masamune Dan as he wants answers for the disease that killed his son and the disappearance of Kiriya Kujo. Emu and Asuna then decide to visit Masamune on Useugi's behalf. When they arrive to visit him, they reveal that the Bugster Virus originated from the Y2K pandemonium and Kuroto was the first to discover it. After their visit, Kuroto appears before the two with Emu more knowledgeable of his crimes. The former admits that he had blamed his father on the virus and had him arrested for it. When they were alerted that the Bugster became active again, Kuroto and Emu transform and fight. Taiga is shown to fend off Para-DX . After Hiiro managed to defeat Kaiden as Emu finished off Genm, Kuroto absorbs the Bugster's death data, ranting on that Kamen Riders and Bugsters are just small parts for his "ultimate game ". He reveals his future plans for people to transform into Riders and fight Bugsters in a game of life or death. Emu is infuriated by this, as Kuroto killed innocent lives, like Kiriya, Saki, and Uesugi's son, for nothing but a twisted game. He is determined to stop Kuroto, but he counters this as he doesn't believe that Emu cannot defeat his immortality and powers as Level X. Genm transforms again, resulting in a shockwave. And Emu does too and tries to defeat him with the Gashacon Key Slasher, but Genm had disappeared. Emu returns to CR and checks on Heiji's disease if it's cured. Poppi says to Hiiro that Emu has taken the responsibility of his current and former patients. Comedically, Emu helps Heiji get out of bed and the two slip and fall.Chasing the Mystery!

At CR, Emu and Poppi are in distress about the revelations of Kamen Rider Chronicle and Zero Day. But, they are alerted about the Charlie Bugster outbreak. The three Riders arrive on the scene, with Brave and

Damaged Gamer Driver

Snipe occupied with Para-DX. After Charlie retreats back into its host, it appears to be none other than Kuroto. Before the Ministry of Health has the chance to arrest him, Emu tells them it's their responsibility to cure his disease first, with Hiiro backing his statement. At CR, Kuroto said that back as a teenager, he believed that his games were superior to all others. But when he received a letter from Emu himself with his ideas games, he found them to be better than his and went mad. He goes on to tell him and Asuna that he sent Michihiko Zaizen to operate on Emu back in 2010. Emu gets angered when hearing this, evident from his eyes glowing red. But he soon relaxes, stating that a doctor cannot have a grudge against his patient. The Bugster resurfaces and Emu transforms into Level XX and stage selects at a pier. After Kuroto has been freed of the virus, he absorbs its data with the Gashacon Bugvisor. He reveals to have injected himself with Game Disease in order to keep away from the Ministry and stated to Emu that he was very easy to fool. The mad Rider transforms into Level X and using his Critical Dead, Genm corrupts Emu's Gamer Driver, rendering it useless. Before leaving, Genm vows to destroy Emu's crystal and lets him live longer, a reward for his cooperation.  Engineered History!

Emu holding Max Gashat

...resulting in the creation of Maximum Mighty X.

"I'm at maximum level. Level 99!"
―Ex-Aid's introduction when he transformed into Maximum Gamer Level 99 for the first time[src]

Even though Emu's Driver was corrupted by Genm, Emu still had Kiriya's Gamer Driver to spare. He then fought Genm as Double Action Gamer Level XX after some officers were injured by Genm's power. It was until Hiiro threw Ex-Aid a new Gashat that the two halves of Ex-Aid fused into Double Action Gamer Level X and try to use it again, only for Ex-Aid to be knocked out of his transformation. After Hiiro was knocked out of his transformation himself, he managed to remind Emu of Kiriya's trust in humanity to him. This resulted in the Bugster Virus within Emu evolving further, and completing the Maximum Mighty X Gashat.

Emu then transforms into Maximum Gamer Level 99 for the first time, selects the hangar, and successfully managed to defeat a giant Bugster Union that Genm had put together to fight him, as well as refill Genm's health gauge. After punching him twice, Ex-Aid then cancelled the transformation, saying that he'd been a doctor before a Kamen Rider, and won't kill him.

Emu weep

Emu weeps for Dan.

He later reappears in front of Genm, Snipe Simulation Gamer Level 50, and Brave Hunter Gamer Level 5 Full Dragon to transform into Maximum Gamer Level 99, and selects the junkyard. Genm summons clones of himself to fight the three riders, but they're all successfully defeated by them. After the Game Area clears, Kuroto tries to transform into Level X again, only to learn that Ex-Aid's finisher reprogrammed the Bugster antibody within Kuroto, rendering him incapable of transforming so that he can be easily taken into custody. However, Parad shows up and kills Kuroto with Emu failing to save him. He is then seen weeping over Kuroto's death on top of the hospital roof.To The Max, Dead or Alive!

Personality

Emu eats and plays

Emu playing a game with lunch.

Emu Hojo is a very clumsy and yet a serious doctor to take on his job. However, his thirst for playing video games has a problem of Emu being absent-minded at times. An example of this is he sometimes fails to remember his work schedule properly and it makes the nurses scold him. He also has a habitual quirk of tumbling down in various comical ways.

Gamer Side

Emu shifting to Genius Gamer M.

As "M", his alias that he uses when playing video games, he shows a completely different side of himself. He displays a focused, calmer, and more confident demeanor. His grammatical persona also changes from ( Boku) into ( Ore), proving to be extremely skillful at video games, to the point where he has come to be known as the "genius gamer" who never leaves any game unfinished. This carries over to his battles as Ex-Aid, as his knowledge of video games has proven to be a definite advantage. Originally, when shifting to his Genius Gamer M personality, a wind blows through his hair and he makes a cocky smile. But during episode 10, Emu's eyes instead flash pink before turning a less intense, glowing red, after which, his eyes turn back to normal. Though he still makes the same cocky smile as before, showing that he can actually shift into his gamer persona at will. In the past, Emu's normal and "M" personalities were once one and the same, though following his surgery by the Next Genome surgeons, the leftover Bugster Virus in his body caused him to develop a case of dissociative identity disorder, constantly switching from his naive side to his predative "M" persona. After learning that he was infected with the Bugster Virus, Emu's gamer persona took over as the dominant one, showing no concern for his patients and was instead only interested in playing the game, something which greatly angers Hiiro. However, after Hiiro states what it means to be a doctor, Emu regains control over himself, and becomes fearful of transforming into Ex-Aid. After he gains his resolve, he loses his fear of becoming Ex-Aid.

Emu has a very idealistic attitude towards being a doctor: he invests himself in the well-being of his patient, hoping to help them both physically and personally. He will always try to help a patient in need, even if they are a criminal, an enemy, or refuse to get help. For him, a life is a life and it's worth saving, fitting the morality of a true doctor and their devotion to the Hippocratic Oath. This mindset helped him connect stress as a catalyst for Bugster infection, but also hinders him if the enemy is smart enough to threaten the patient's life. His firm idealism has led to clashes with his fellow CR Rider, Hiiro. Hiiro views Emu as naive and inexperienced, while Emu openly opposes Hiiro's detached and callous approach, going as far to say Hiiro is not a real doctor.

However, Emu is not without a dark side. When pushed too far, Emu can lose control of his temper and when that happens his Gamer side becomes as vicious and selfish as his rivals. This was shown when Kyotaro is infected by Graphite. Emu become so frustrated into believing that he's the only one who can save Kyotaro, to the point that he'll do anything to capture the Hunter Gamer using a stolen Gashacon Sword. While this shows that Emu takes pride in his beliefs as a doctor, at the same time it demonstrates that as a Gamer he shares Genm's and even Taiga's ideals to some extent. However, after some enlightenment from his idol, Kyotaro Hinata, Emu decides to trust his fellow doctor Riders, while also gaining respect from them over time.

Powers and Abilities

  • Skilled Gamer: Emu is a masterful gamer, particularly in terms of platform gaming. He has extensive knowledge of games in other genres, including Bang Bang Shooting and Bakusou Bike and can adapt easily when playing a new game. These skills are greatly enhanced when he enters a state of emotional rage or frustration, as shown when he effectively, in separate occasions, outmaneuvered both Genm and Snipe who are both at their Level 3 forms while Emu is only on Level 2. Furthermore, if his Genius Gamer persona is 100% active, his gaming skills skyrocket at a frightening degree evidenced on how despite being only at Level 3 he managed to overpower Gatton Bugster who is a Level 30, stating that one of gaming's thrills is figuring out how to defeat stronger opponents.
  • High Interpersonal Skill: Despite his clumsiness, Emu's kindness has allowed him to connect with all of his patients.
  • Original Bugster Virus: Being Patient Zero, the first and only person to be infected of the Bugster virus before Zero Day, Emu had hosted the virus for a prolonged period of time, causing the virus to fuse with and alter his DNA, thus granting him Rider and possibly even Bugster-like powers and abilities that by standard, requires external intervention to acquire.
    • Natural Game Disease Immunity: Unlike the other Riders, Emu can utilize the Gamer Driver and Rider Gashats without the need of the compatibility surgery. Also, his immunity is absolute, unlike the other Riders' acquired immunity which can still be overwhelmed by a large dose of Bugster virus, as he was unaffected when using the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat for the first time.
    • Gashat Creation: As Patient Zero of the Bugster Virus, the progenitor of all the Rider Gashats and Bugsters as stated by Hiiro, he can use the Bugster Virus in him in conjunction with certain blank Gashats to create new, stronger forms for himself. This causes the Bugster Virus in him to evolve and become even stronger, which made Emu as Ex-Aid become stronger in return. Emu demonstrated this ability twice so far in the series with the creation of Mighty Brothers XX and Maximum Mighty X.
    • Dual Personalities: Due to the Bugster Virus in Emu's DNA, he has two different personalities, which can be separated when using Mighty Brothers XX.
    • Increased Physical Strength: In at least one occasion, the spontaneous activation of Emu's Bugster infection allows him to exert great physical strength without transforming.

In this form, Ex-aid is armed by all Dragon parts from the Hunter Gamer. His weapons include:

  • Dragon Fang: Transformed from the Dragonknight-Fang, it's a dragon-head headgear covering his helmet. It can not only can crush his enemies with powerful bites, but also jet a high-temperature flame and burn them. Furthermore, it is equipped with the Search Drago Eye to collect and display surrounding, and help Ex-Aid cover his blind spot and control the Wip Drago Tail. In Episode 11, He can the Dragon Fang's wings to fly, but ends up crashing into a building.

However, during its initial usage, this form's overwhelming power rendered Ex-Aid into a rampaging mindless beast and going out of control, not unlike OOO Putotyra Combo, attacking friend and foe alike, before quickly de-transforming itself and leaings Emu exhausted.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 32.3 t
  • Kicking power: 40.6 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 66.0 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 2.0 sec.


Double Action Gamer Level XX (ダブルアクションゲーマーレベルXX Daburu Akushion Gēmā Reberu Tsuentī, lit. "Double Action Gamer Level 20") is Ex-Aid's upgraded fighter form, accessed from Double Action Gamer Level X by closing and reopening the lever. In this form, Ex-Aid splits into two separate bodies and wields mainly the Gashacon Key Slasher and the Gashacon Breaker. Despite the title, both Ex-Aids' are Level X Riders, thus the "XX" rank is due to their combined Level, since they are in fact the same person.

The teal Ex-Aid XX L acts like Emu as he is relatively calm and prioritizes the patient's safety first. His other half, the orange Ex-Aid XX R acts like the Genius Gamer M; he is cocky and prioritizes defeating the enemy to ensure victory.

As opposed to becoming slightly weaker like going from Level 1 to Level 2, leveling up into this form offers a massive power boost, as all of Ex-Aid's stats are increased. As stated by Kuroto Dan, each separated Ex-Aid has the power of Level X, so the total level is added up to 20 as Level XX. Furthermore, if both personalities objectives is synchronized, Ex-Aid can perform various outstanding joint-attacks.

This form appears to have a side effect, as when Emu deactivates his transformation, he gets massive headaches that are unbearable, faints to the ground, and being unconscious for a short time period, leaving him in a completely vulnerable state. This drawback appears to have lessened, with him at least remaining conscious in later uses of this form.

After Emu overcomes his fear of the Bugster Virus inside him, the side effects this form poses no longer occur. Whether these symptoms will occur or not is yet to be determined.

This form has two finishers:

  • Gamer Driver finisher:
    • Mighty Double Critical Strike (マイティダブルクリティカルストライク Maiti Daburu Kuritikaru Sutoraiku): Ex-Aid Level XX R and L perform a series of kicks at the enemy, before transforming back into Level X, who double punches the enemy in the sky, then separates back into the Level XX R and L, both of whom would later double kick the enemy.

    • Main Finisher
      • Mighty Brothers Critical Finish (マイティブラザーズクリティカルフィニッシュ Maiti Burazāsu Kuritikaru Finisshu)
        • Blade: Ex-Aid Level XX R creates another Gashacon Key Slasher for Level XX L to use, and they both attack at the same time, creating an orange and teal energy X cross slash at the enemy.
        • Axe: Ex-Aid Level XX R creates another Gashacon Key Slasher for Level XX L to use, and they both attack at the same time, creating an orange energy slash at the enemy.

In this form, Ex-Aid's stats skyrocket tremendously with the massive power brought by the Maximum Gamer, to the point where not even Genm as Genm X can surpass and being beaten easily by Ex-Aid's brutal attacks, making him a great force to be reckoned with.

He wields the Gashacon Breaker from Mighty Action X, and the Gashacon Key Slasher from Mighty Brothers XX. This form also has the ability to rewrite the Bugster coding, allowing him to remove a Rider's compatibility or some of his enemy's powers, Rider or Bugster alike.

This form's Gamer Driver finisher is the Maximum Critical Break (マキシマムクリティカルブレイク Makishimamu Kuritikaru Bureiku): Ex-Aid punches into the ground to send the enemy flying into the air, then jumps after it and delivers a kick to it as the enemy decends. When first used on Genm, this attack depleted the Bugster Virus antibody that was within him.

  • Blade: Ex-Aid charges the weapon with fiery energy, before delivering a powerful red energy slash at the enemy.
  • Axe:

Ex-Aid Kyutama

Ex-Aid Kyutama.

The Ex-Aid KyutamaIcon-crosswiki (エグゼイドキュータマ Eguzeido Kyūtama, lit. Ex-Aid Nine Ball) was among the Kyutamas collected by Shou RonbouIcon-crosswiki under unexplained circumstances. It allowed the KyurangersIcon-crosswiki to summon Kamen Rider Ex-Aid to assist them. Space.7: Take Back the Birthday!

Relationships

  • Seito University Hospital CR
    • Asuna Karino/Poppy Pippopapo: Asuna is a close ally for Emu and mostly acts as his main assistant nurse. He still calls Asuna by that name even when she is Poppi.
    • Hiiro Kagami: Emu and Hiiro develop a rivalry relationship as both have polar opposite ways on taking care of patients. Hiiro also becomes the second reason why Emu decided to not quit for becoming Ex-Aid. Hiiro in return sees Emu with animosity and sees his presence as an Intern and a No Thank You. However, Emu indirectly helped Hiiro to regain his confidence in his skill as Genius surgeon, while Hiiro also acts as a senior to Emu, once helping him to escape from Genm Zombie Gamer Level X's Critical Dead (but he still takes Emu's Gashats away as punishment). Emu also appears to have gained some respect for Hiiro when he agreed to help perform cancer surgery on a patient while he was curing the same patient's game disease.
    • Haima Kagami: Haima is a senior for Emu. Although Emu respects him, Haima initially acts tough towards him, although this is only a coy.
  • Taiga Hanaya: Emu and Taiga also developed a rivalry. However, Taiga is the only doctor that Emu won't get close into unless they encounter the same problem. Taiga also seems to despise Emu, although he does call him by his title, Genius Gamer. Taiga is one of the first to discover that Emu has game disease.
  • Kiriya Kujo: Emu was initially reluctant to get close to Kiriya. But ironically, Emu is the only one who believes Kiriya despite the many lies he'd given to him, which was for Emu's own benefit. Emu eventually felt that he got to understand Kiriya, but due to his death, Emu became enraged towards Kuroto. Even as when Parad kills Kuroto, which indirectly helped Emu to avenge Kiriya's death, Emu still feels that avenging the fallen victims by killing the true suspect doesn't seem right.
  • Genm Corp.
    • Kuroto Dan: When Emu was a child, he was a fan of the games that Kuroto had developed. Even as Emu joined CR later as an adult, he still had great trust in Kuroto, unaware that Kuroto was his nemesis Genm, right until Kuroto reveals his true motives of collecting data to complete the ultimate game. Emu's hostility towards Kuroto later deepens once he learns that Kuroto had killed Kiriya. However, even after all the sins that Kuroto has committed, Emu feels that killing Kuroto would not seem right as he would rather have Kuroto live to repay for the evil deeds he has done. This is especially shown when Emu decides to take Kuroto into CR when Kuroto was infected with the Bugster virus, even when Kuroto was already apprehended by the Ministry of Health. After seeing Kuroto suffer his tragic Game Over, Emu would later cry for Kuroto while alone.
    • Graphite: Emu has been seen as Graphite's number one nemesis as Emu is the only Kamen Rider who is mostly able to take care of Bugsters easily. Especially, when Graphite infects his idol, Kyotaro Hinata. Ultimately, Emu destroyed Graphite with the help of his fellow Doctor Riders.
    • Parad: Parad took an interest in Emu. He at first mocked Emu that life is like a game and once humans die, it's game over for them (they can't come back). However, upon seeing Emu's determination to save lives, Parad gives him a blank Gashat, wanting to observe his fate. After Emu created the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat, Parad said that Emu is really exciting.
    • Masamune Dan: Emu and Masamune have met each other through unknown means since 2000 and during Emu's special surgery led by Kyotaro when Emu was a patient zero. Once Emu learned that Masamune was framed by Kuroto for a Zero Day back in 2011, Kiriya's death, and Kuroto spills Emu's secret being a patient zero, Emu wants to know more from Masamune and keeps his promise to put Kuroto in custody. Though avenging Masamune's reputation, but Emu failed to arrest Kuroto when Parad kills him.
  • Ministry of Health
    • Kyotaro Hinata : Emu highly respects Kyotaro, to the point of debt-like respect because Kyotaro was the one who saved his life 16 years ago. In return, Kyotaro helps Emu by giving him some advice regarding his Doctor idealism.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's design pays homage to typical fighter game characters such as from Street Fighter.
  • The name Ex-Aid is a portmanteau word from Extreme and Aid.
Ex-Aid at AmeTa-lk

Ex-Aid's "first" appearance on television.

  • Chronologically, Ex-Aid's first appearance is on a Japanese talk-show named Ame Ta-lk (Aug 4th, 2016). Introduced by the show's special guest Shun Nishime (Takeru Tenkuji), Ex-Aid appeared behind the staff and performed a short burlesque, which shocked the other guests of the show.
  • The "Mighty Jump! Mighty Kick!" portion of his Action Gamer Level 2 transformation announcement may be a reference to the "Rider Jump! Rider Kick!" lyrics of the iconic theme song of the original Kamen Rider series.
EX-AID Daihenshin

Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 1 doing the Great Transformation pose.

  • Emu's transformation as Ex-Aid sequence has similarity to the previous riders, especially the concept:
    • His transformation pose is similar to Black and Specter as his right arm is bent 90 degrees upward to the outside with his left arm bending 90 degrees inward to the right.
    • His transformation sequence is almost similar to Fourze as there is a ring covering him.
    • His first transformation as the imperfect form of the Rider is similar to almost all riders in Kamen Rider Kabuto. Especially during his transformation into Action Gamer Level 2 which uses the concept of Cast Off from Kabuto.
    • His Level Up sequence to enter a portal is truly similar to Kamen Riders Blade and Garren running through a screen.
    • When triggering Level 2, he announces "Dai Henshin!" (lit. "Great Transformation"), similar to the transformation call of Keisuke Jin when he directly transforms into Kamen Rider X after gaining the Mercury Circuit.
  • Emu has the same driving principle as OOO and Ghost as all of them treasure life so much.
  • Emu's name is a homonym of M, which is his name of Genius Gamer identity.
  • Emu was eight years old at the time of the accident. Given that the accident takes places sixteen years before the series, that places Emu at approximately 24 years old, which is confirmed in the character description for Emu in TOEI's official website for the series.
    • In a blood sample analysis made by Taiga in episode 14, Emu's blood type is AB positive.
  • Emu is the second rider since Shin to have no real Rider Machine of his own as he used another Kamen Rider for his vehicle.
    • However, Ex-Aid acquired Shakariki Sports Gashat after defeating Genm and used the said Gashat on the next episode, making him the first Neo Heisei Rider who took the longest to get his Rider Machine. He would later go on to use Bike Gamer as a standard Rider machine after Kiriya's death.
    • Because Sports Action Gamer Level 3 (Ex-Aid ver.) is hinted at Ganbarizing, this form is the first Ganbarizing form who officially appeared in the show.
  • Coincidently, after the death of Kiriya, Emu can use the Bakusou Bike Gashat to summon the Bike Gamer as his own personal Rider Machine.
  • Before inserting his Rider Gashat for the Finishing Attack, Emu occasionally blows into it first, a reference to the common practice of gamers during the retro days where they had to blow into their video game cartridges whenever they malfunctioned due to dust on the connectors.
    • However, despite this popular retro trend, many game developers and computer experts warn against doing this as it corrodes the connectors with deposits of human saliva and mold, which weakens the circuit and eventually makes the cartridge game unplayable. [8]
  • The gold "V" that Emu gains on his head as Ex-Aid Level 3 causes his face to resemble and could be a reference to the Gundam series, another popular series in Japan.
    • Given the red color scheme, another possibility is that it is also a reference to the Super Robot Compatible Kaiser, which first appeared in The Great Battle IV and later in the Super Robot Wars Original Generations series of video games.
    • This also maybe a reference to Kirby: Planet Robobot, as Ex-Aid Action Gamer has Mighty Action X as basis, which has a similar design to Kirby, while Robot Gamer's functions similar to Robobot Armor, as both serves as robot-themed enhance equipment. However, Maximum Gamer Level 99 seems to fit this reference better, due to being a mecha fighting game featuring Mighty piloting a robot in a similar fashion to Kirby.
    • This may also be another "Kamen Rider X" reference; due to the huge "V" at the base of X-Rider's antenna.
    • Coincidentally, the v-shaped crest and red armor is similar to Viewtiful Joe, a character from a series that has some elements derived from the Kamen Rider franchise.
  • Emu going out of control as Ex-Aid Hunter Action Gamer Level 5 (Full Dragon) because of it's overwhelming power is similar to how Eiji was unable to control himself as OOO Putotyra Combo because of it's own power.
    • However, both were able to gain some form of control after their initial transformation into their respective forms.
  • Maximum Gamer Level 99 is visually similar to the Mech suits of Metroid Prime: Federation Force.
    • Moreover, it is more like the Hulkbuster Armor from Avengers: Age of Ultron due to its heavy-duty exoskeletal features.
    • The design is based on Mega Man X series' Ride Armor due to the design retaining original Action Gamer Level 2's head size while donning a bigger form, as well as henced where Mighty Action X game based from.
    • The change from a bulkier frame (Level 99) to a sleeker and more royal appearance (Level ?) is similar to the Kachidoki and Kiwami Lockseeds owned by the titular rider of Kamen Rider Gaim.
    • Maximum Gamer also bears some resemblance to the Gurren Lagann mecha and it's variants from the anime of the same name.
  • Emu is the first rider to have two Level 3 forms to debut in series.
  • Episode 12 has flashback where Emu as a child was creating the concept of a game resembling the Mighty Brothers XX.
    • Coincidentally, Mighty Brothers XX is made by Emu as Kuroto only created the Gashat without installing any game yet.
  • Emu is the first rider to split up in his super form which allowing two personalities of himself to act accordingly. This concept is almost like Kamen Rider Double but he can't be counted because it was the help from Decade and Double is basically two souls in one body.
    • Emu having two personalities and occasionally switching when playing a game(or just transforming) is similar to DatasIcon-crosswiki as he slightly switches his personality from being kind to being aggressive when he turns big to fight with the Goseigers.
  • One of Emu's pair of shoes had orange and teal checker patterns on them.This is depicting the colors of the Double Action Gamer Level XX.
  • Coincidentally, there are certain elements of Ex-Aid that can be linked to Kamen Rider Kuuga:
    • The rider based on the character "Mighty" and Mighty Form both having powerful kicks as a finisher.
    • Level 3 - 5, even Level 99 modifying the armor and the alternate forms Kuuga used to fight under different circumstances.
    • Debilitating headaches after deactivating Double Action Gamer and overuse of Pegasus form's heightened senses.
    • The riders' final forms, Kuuga's Rising Ultimate Form and Ex-Aid's Muteki Gamer have a gold colored theme and similar designs.
  • Even though Emu is 24, his actor Hiroki Iijima was only 20 by the time when he portrayed Emu.
  • Due to his primary Action Gamer forms/armors are related to Mighty Action X's inspirations, Ex-Aid's storyline, background and forms/armors are almost identical to Mega Man X and some of this game's protagonists.
    • Ex-Aid is the main protagonist of his series who has a hidden power from within and multiple forms/armors like X, and was the first progenitor of the earlier viruses like Zero.
  • Muteki Gamer's gold color scheme and rainbow-colored eyes could be a reference to how certain characters become either gold or rainbow colored when invincible. Like how Sonic turns gold as Super Sonic, and Mario starts flashing multiple colors or is rainbow colored when he becomes Invincible Mario or Rainbow Mario respectively as some examples.
    • Muteki Gamer's visor appears to take on a shape that resembles a combination of Simon and Kamina's visors, as well as that of Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann from the Gurren Lagann series.
      • The visor also resembles an amalgamation of the face on Maximum Gamer's torso and the spikes on the back merging to form a multi-pointed star.
  • Maximum Gamer Level 99's transformation music tone is slightly similar to Drive Type Formula.
  • True to its "Level 99" label, Ex-Aid's Maximum Gamer form has ability perimeters which are all related to the number "99", with the obvious exception of his height and weight.
