This article is about a/an character in Kamen Rider Ryuki.

Hajime Nakamura (仲村 創 Nakamura Hajime) is the identity of Alternative (オルタナティブ Orutanatibu), one of the mimicries of the 13 Kamen Riders and not considered a true Kamen Rider.


Hajime Nakamura was originally one of the staff under Professor Ejima at Lab 401, but he was sick the day Kanzaki and Ejima began the experiments. Upon learning what occurred, Nakamura never forgave Kanzaki and his sister, for the events that occurred. Hajime Nakamura studiously avoided any questions about the lab, Kanzaki and what happened there, when encountered by Yui when she came to Seminin University to learn more about her brother's actions and later Reiko and Shinji, though Kagawa had given him some superficial explanation. Nakamura eventually joined Professor Kagawa to stop the Rider War as Alternative. However, Nakamura's reasons were for vengeance and thus was killed by Satoru because of those reasons.

Contract Monster

The Alternative's sole contract monster Psycorogue resembling a humanoid cricket, Psycorogue could transform into a motorcycle called the Psycoroader. This contract monster has white armor with black accents while Alternative Zero and Alternative's armor were black with white accents, contrary to other Riders whose armor was similar with their contract monster. Its name is a portmanteau of the two words, psycho and koorogi, which is cricket in Japanese. The Final Vent move Dead End transforms Psycorogue into a motorcycle, then Alternative and motorcycle spin-out faster and faster until they ram into the opponent.
