The Transcending Operating Handle-Ken (超絶運転ハンドル剣 Chōzetsu Unten Handoru Ken, lit. "Steering Wheel Sword" (Handle being the Japanese wording for "steering wheel")) is a bladed weapon wielded by Kamen Rider Drive, resembling Tridoron's steering wheel. It first appears in episode 4.

Shinnosuke is the one who names this weapon thanks to the rather oddly placed steering wheel on the hand guard, though Mr. Belt disapproves of the literal name. When the Handle-Ken is summoned, it comes from the front portion of Tridoron's hollow section.

A replica of the Handle-Ken is also wielded by the Imitation Drive. Type HIGH SPEED! The True Power! Type High Speed is Born!

In episode 43, the Handle-Ken was stolen from Drive and used by Gold Drive during their second battle with each other.

Usage

The Handle-Ken's blade is made from S0-1, an experimental compound that can also repair Shift Cars. The blade itself is very sharp albeit weirdly balanced, but it can be made even more powerful by turning the steering wheel on the hilt, which announces "Turn" (ターン Tān) and powers up for the next attack. Initiating a third Turn motion in a row causes the Handle-Ken to instead announce "U-Turn" (Uターン Yū Tān) and allow Drive to execute the Turn Slash (ターンスラッシュ Tān Surasshu) attack, where he drifts across the battlefield before he strikes the enemy with a powerful slash.

In terms of Drive's main forms, Type Wild is the most compatible with the Handle-Ken due to its enhanced strength and defensive capabilities fitting with the close range combat nature of this weapon.

Drive can use the Nin ShurikenIcon-crosswiki in a similar manner to the Ninja IchibantouIcon-crosswiki simply by placing them on the Handle-Ken's insignia then spinning the shuriken and turning the steering wheel. When Tridoron transforms into an OtomoNinIcon-crosswiki and combines with ShurikenjinIcon-crosswiki, the Handle-Ken becomes part of a special control interface for Drive so that he can control the combined mecha with the Ninningers.

Finishing attacks

The Handle-Ken has two Rider Slash Full Throttle finishers.

  • Drift Slash (ドリフトスラッシュ Dorifuto Surasshu): To activate this attack, Drive must load a Shift Car into the Handle-Ken's Shift Landing Panel (シフトランディングパネル Shifuto Randingu Paneru) behind its blade or activate the Full Throttle via the Drive Driver and Shift Brace after turning his Drive Driver's Advanced Ignition.

  • Speed: When Drive slashes an enemy, a blue automobile light trail appears and reflects a red then blue image of either a speedometer, a rev counter, or a fuel gauge on the target.
  • Midnight Shadow: When Drive slashes, a giant energy shuriken is shot at the enemy.
  • Dream Vegas: When Drive slashes an enemy three times, the number 7 appears with cards, chips, and lottery-related items bursting out, which then reflects an image of the number 777 on the target.
  • Wild: Drive strikes the enemy with one energized slash before he spins rapidly and traps the target in a series of deadly spinning slashes until they are destroyed.
  • Tridoron: Drive strikes the enemy with a couple of energized slashes as an energy projection of Tridoron spins around him and the target.

  • Rumble Dump: Drive strikes the enemy with both the Rumble Smasher and energized slashes from the Handle-Ken as he spins rapidly and traps the target in a series of deadly spinning slashes and Rumble Smasher strikes until they are destroyed.


  • Drift Rotation (ドリフト回転 Dorifuto Kaiten): To activate this attack, Drive must press the Handle-Ken's "horn" after turning its steering wheel once.



  • Drift Slash (ドリフトスラッシュ Dorifuto Surasshu): When Gaim Drive Arms activates his Sengoku Driver's Squash function, his belt announces Hissatsu! Ah, Full Throttle! (必殺! あ、フルスロットル! Hissatsu! A, Furu Surottoru!, lit. "Finisher! Ah, Full Throttle!"), allowing him to slip on an orange road and use the Handle-Ken to slash his enemy with a red tire.
