Geiz Myoukouin (明光院 ゲイツ Myōkōin Geitsu)[1] is a warrior from the year 2068 who transforms into Kamen Rider Geiz (仮面ライダーゲイツ Kamen Raidā Geitsu)[2], the secondary rider of Kamen Rider Zi-O.

History

Kamen Rider Geiz comes from 50 years in the future where he fought as a resistance fighter against the evil tyranny of the demonic king, Zi-O. He travels back in time to kill Sougo before he can become the king destined to enslave the future.

Forms

Like Zi-O, Geiz transforms by inserting the Geiz Ridewatch into the right-hand side of the Ziku-Driver and rotating the Driver 360 degrees. He accesses Armor (アーマー Āmā) forms based on previous Kamen Riders by inserting Ridewatches into the left-hand side of the Ziku-Driver.[3]

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Geiz Myoukouin is portrayed by Gaku Oshida (押田 岳 Oshida Gaku). As Kamen Rider Geiz, he is portrayed by an unknown suit actor.

Etymology

"Geiz" is a German word which means "stinginess" or "miserliness". His name's phonetic pronunciation in Japanese is a pun on "Gates", referring to "time gates" or "interdimensional gates".

Notes

  • This Rider and his first two forms were revealed accidentally by a Chinese printing industry staff unintentionally during Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing posters making.[10]
  • Contrasting with Zi-O's katakana, Geiz' visors are all words written in the hiragana.
    • Geiz's boots have the hiragana for "kick" (きっく kikku) on the soles.
  • Geiz's base form color scheme and design are similar to Kamen Rider Den-O (Liner Form), Kamen Rider Kiva and Kamen Rider Accel.
    • Curiously Den-O is also a Time Traveling Kamen Rider.
    • Coincidentally, all three series have secondary Riders who were at odds with the main Rider due to their reason for fighting. They also represent a portion of Geiz's background: Being represented by someone in the future (Zeronos); determined to eliminate the main Rider due to what they represent (Ixa); being single-minded in their goals, to the extent they will unhesitatingly attack the main Rider in the pursuit (Accel).
  • Geiz's suit design is based on G-Shock watches.
  • Geiz is the first Secondary Rider in franchise history to keep his actual name as his Rider alias.
