Haruto Souma (操真 晴人 Sōma Haruto?) is the main protagonist and the title character of the Kamen Rider Series installment Kamen Rider Wizard. With the WizarDriver given to him by the White Wizard, he is able to transform into Kamen Rider Wizard (仮面ライダーウィザード Kamen Raidā Wizādo?), the titular hero. His first appearance was in Kamen Rider Fourze the Movie: Everyone, Space is Here!.
As a child, Haruto was forced to watch his parents die after they were badly wounded in a car crash. But the promise he made to his parents to keep hope alive in his heart saved Haruto's life years later when he was among the Gates sacrificed during a solar eclipse to create Phantoms.
Six months prior to the series, Haruto was subjected among many others in a ritualistic sacrifice that created the Phantoms on the day of a solar eclipse. While many died giving birth to their Phantoms, Haruto managed to keep his Phantom Dragon from emerging by facing despair head on and as a result he obtained magical powers. Coming to after the eclipse ended, Haruto was attacked by one of the newly-born Phantoms until he was saved by the mysterious White Wizard who presented him with Koyomi, a Gate who also survived the ritual but lost her identity, the WizarDriver and the Flame Ring so that he can access his magic and track down the Phantoms as Kamen Rider Wizard. Motivated to give hope and save people from despair so no Phantom could ever be born again, Haruto sought out Shigeru Wajima to be supplied with more Wizard Rings to fight the Phantoms with.
He was first seen assisting Kamen Riders Fourze and Meteor against the remaining four duplicate Horoscopes (Sagittarius, Virgo, Gemini and Pisces), allowing the two Riders to continue their battle with the Space Ironmen. He makes quick work of the Horoscopes. This was the first time that Haruto learned of the Kamen Riders, and met other Kamen Riders. He introduced himself as a Wizard to Fourze, who explained to him that Kamen Riders are heroes that fight for justice, thus Haruto gave himself the title "Kamen Rider Wizard".
He later appeared out of his Rider form some time after Fourze defeated Mitsuaki Gamou, his last battle against the Zodiarts. Haruto walked past Miu Kazashiro and Shun Daimonji while adjusting his Flame Ring, unknowingly and unintentionally catching Miu's eye and interrupting Shun's proposal to her.
Two new friendsEdit
Six months after the Sabbath, as Kamen Rider Wizard, Haruto got to work opposing the Phantoms and rescuing Gates. He confronted the Phantom Minotauros and his force of Ghouls who were attacking workers at a warehouse, along with a police squad set to assist. Minotauros was holding Rinko Daimon, a rookie detective, by the throat when Haruto arrived. Identified by Minotauros as a magician, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard to swiftly dispatch the Ghouls and break one of Minotauros' horns, forcing the Phantom to retreat. After summoning his PlaMonsters to search for Minotauros, Haruto was confronted by Rinko. He explained to her that humans with magic potential, known as Gates, are being targeted by Phantoms, monsters that emerge from Gates who have given in to their own despair. Demanding more information from him and seeing him as a potential threat upon revealing that he has a Phantom inside him, she arrests him. At the Toriizaka Police Station, Rinko was informed by her superior, Amino, and the police chief that they were dropping the case due to their inability to handle the threat.
Koyomi went to the police station to free Haruto where she passed by both Rinko and Amino, detecting a strange aura within the latter. Koyomi planted the Blue Unicorn PlaMonster, which broke into Haruto's cell to deliver him a message from Koyomi, warning him that Amino is the Phantom they are after. After deducing that Rinko is the Gate, he promptly used the Small Magic Ring to shrink himself and ride on Blue Unicorn to break out of jail. Meanwhile, at a park, Rinko explained to Amino that she became a detective because her father was a policeman himself. Suddenly, Amino grabbed Rinko's locket and slapped her to the ground before revealing himself to be Minotauros and stomping on the locket, forcing her into despair. Haruto and Koyomi arrived to intervene; while Koyomi looked after Rinko, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard to battle the Phantom. Kamen Rider Wizard used his Land Style and Hurricane Style attacks before finishing off Minotauros with Flame Style's Strike Wizard Rider Kick. When Rinko's body began to show signs of a Phantom about to emerge, Kamen Rider Wizard placed an Engage Ring on her right hand and entered her Underworld to neutralize her inner Phantom Jabberwock using his Winger WizarDragon and the WizarSwordGun. No longer a Gate, Rinko woke up on a park bench and looked at the Engage Ring on her hand as Haruto took Koyomi back home.
Sometime later, Haruto came to the assistance of a group of children and a young man named Shunpei Nara, who were being attacked by the Phantom Hellhound. After Hellhound retreated, Shunpei approacheed Haruto and, realising he was a wizard, asked him to make him his apprentice. Haruto refused, but found himself being chased by Shunpei all over town. Shunpei finally cornered Haruto at the Donut Shop Hungry, and he told him he wanted to help people with magic, but Haruto explained that the world does not need any more wizards and told Shunpei to keep dreaming before he walked away. Meanwhile, after being questioned by Agent Kizaki of National Security Agency's Section Zero for her involvement with Kamen Rider Wizard, Rinko went to the Antique Shop Omokagedo to look for Haruto. There, she met Koyomi and Mr. Wajima. Koyomi explained to Rinko that six months ago, on the day of a solar eclipse, she and Haruto were kidnapped along with many other Gates to be forced into despair during a sacrificial ritual. While nearly everyone was consumed by their Phantoms, Haruto fought to contain the Phantom within him. After the eclipse, a mysterious person wearing a red mask and a white robe laid an unconscious Koyomi next to Haruto and granted him the WizarDriver and the Wizard Rings. As a result of the incident, Koyomi lost her memories of her life from before the event while Haruto became a wizard, vowing never to let anyone become a Phantom.
Later, Shunpei picked up a children's book at a library when he was surrounded by Hellhound and a platoon of Ghouls. As a Ghoul cornered him against a tree, he closes his eyes and points his finger at it, suddenly casting a weak flame-throwing spell before Haruto arrived at the scene and faced the Phantoms as Kamen Rider Wizard. Haruto told Shunpei to run, but he is in shock from casting a spell, and Rinko jumped in to save him from another Ghoul. Haruto was surprised that Rinko had returned, she explained to Haruto that just like him she wanted to protect people, magic or no magic. Kamen Rider Wizard disposed of all the Ghouls before he chases Hellhound on motorcycle. During the chase, he blasted the Phantom into a warehouse with his WizarSwordGun. Minutes after running for safety, Shunpei came to the realization that he himself could wield magic.
Excited over his newly discovered ability to create fire from his hands, Shunpei started showing off his magical power to the children at the park before he was invited by Kazuo Tajima of TV Yūhi for an interview on his Morning Island show. After doing a short demonstration in front of the camera, Shunpei was offered a spot on live TV before Haruto found him. At the Hungry stand, Shunpei tried to show off his power in front of Haruto, but to no avail. Upon remembering that Hellhound breathes fire, Haruto realized that the Phantom survived and is playing mind games on Shunpei. Though Haruto tried to explain it to him, Shunpei accused him of keeping him down before he walks away. Later that night, at Omokagedo, Haruto pondered on his argument with Shunpei before Wajima reminded him of how they met six months ago, when Haruto and Koyomi traced the origin of the Flame Ring to Wajima and asked him to craft more rings to battle the Phantoms. Given a new Wizard Ring and told that it might help light the way for him, Haruto's conviction is restored. The next morning, Haruto received a phone call from Rinko about Shunpei on TV. Realizing that Tajima was the Phantom orchestrating Shunpei for the fall, Haruto rushed to the TV station to save Shunpei as he was publicly humiliated on national TV when his "magic" fails on him. Delighting in his target's misery, Hellhound revealed himself before entering Shunpei's shadow to force him into incinerating the Forest Wizard book to completely send him to despair.
Kamen Rider Wizard battled Hellhound and used the Light Magic Ring to flush out the Phantom from the shadows before transforming to Water Style to counter the Phantom's flame attacks and destroy him with the Water Slash Strike. Giving Shunpei an Engage Ring, Kamen Rider Wizard entered his Underworld and managed to destroy the inner Phantom Cyclops while retrieving a mental copy of the Forest Wizard. Later, as Rinko arrived at Omokagedo to inform Haruto about the media blackout involving his fight with Hellhound, Shunpei was there too. Like Rinko, he vowed to help Haruto in any way he could even without magic.
The Pianist and the Con artistEdit
At the Antique Shop Omokagedo, Rinko walked in on Haruto using some sort of magical power on Koyomi, with the latter glowing brightly. Meanwhile, Medusa and Phoenix sent the Phantom Caitsith to hunt down a new Gate in the form of pianist Eisaku Takagi. Just as Caitsith attacked Eisaku at a conservatory, Haruto arrived to intervene while Rinko brought Eisaku to safety. After a lengthy battle, the Phantom retreated. Later, Haruto and Rinko explained to Eisaku about his situation as a Gate, but Eisaku was more concerned about his upcoming piano competition and couldn't care less about being attacked. It was revealed that Eisaku was a well renowned pianist who swept every contest he participated in, but has not won anything since joining the conservatory; thus, he hoped for the upcoming competition to be his big comeback. Koyomi and Shunpei arrived at the conservatory. Just as the four get into an argument, Caitsith in his human form shown up. Haruto and Rinko chased after the Phantom, but lose him past the Donut Shop Hungry. Meanwhile, Koyomi and Shunpei followed Eisaku toward a lake, concerned about his safety when Misa suddenly appeared. However, instead of Eisaku, Medusa targeted Koyomi, entangling her with her hair and siphoning off her mana before walking away. Haruto and Rinko rushed to the scene, where Haruto recharges Koyomi's mana through her Please Magic Ring. Caitsith once again targeted Eisaku with the intent to chop off his hands, but Eisaku offered him to finish the job - much to the Phantom's shock. Kamen Rider Wizard arrived to once again do battle with Caitsith. He trapped the Phantom with the Bind Magic Ring, but as he prepares to execute the Flame Style's Strike Wizard Rider Kick, the spell malfunctioned, as he was out of mana.
Taking advantage of Haruto's sudden loss of mana during battle, Caitsith managed to escape. Haruto confronted Takagi as he realized the pianist wanted the Phantom to cripple him and take him out of the piano competition. Koyomi blamed herself for Haruto's loss as he had used all of his remaining mana to reanimate her. As she walked away, Haruto followed her, but he suddenly passeed out. Back at the Antique Shop Omokagedo, as Koyomi watched over Haruto, Wajima explains to Rinko and Shunpei that Koyomi was actually a Gate whose body was somehow preserved after her Phantom was manifested. As the Phantom had taken her life and memories, she needed a regular supply of mana from Haruto in order to survive. When Haruto waked up, he explained to Koyomi that even a negative person such as Takagi needed hope. Later that night, Koyomi, Rinko and Shunpei payed Takagi a visit. Koyomi argued with Takagi over his fear of facing the present and moving on to the future, assuring him that Haruto will be there to protect him. The next day, as Takagi performed at the competition, Caitsith unleashed an army of Ghouls and prepared to crash the event, but is stopped by Kamen Rider Wizard, who used the Copy Magic Ring to duplicate himself and destroy the Ghouls before finishing off the Phantom with the Hurricane Style's Slash Strike. After the competiton, Takagi told Haruto that he lost once again, but he decided to move on by moving overseas and starting over with his career.While visiting Hungry for a sugar doughnut, Haruto learned the manager's normally silent worker has fallen in love with a beautiful girl and bought stone bracelets from her and feels envious to it. At the same time, at Omokagedo, Koyomi found Shunpei and Wajima have also found love themselves. Later, Haruto discovered the Phantom Gnome attacking a rich man named Yamagata and his girlfriend Manami. Overpowered by Kamen Rider Wizard in Hurricane Style, Gnome escaped into the ground with Wizard sending Blue Unicorn after him. Brought to Yamagata's manor, Haruto informed him and Manami of the Phantom's intent and called Rinko to help him keep an eye on them to find out which one is the Gate that Gnome is after. However, upon hearing that Rinko is a cop, Manami decided to go home with Haruto, accompanying him before she ditched him when she learns he can only use his magic to fight Phantoms and nothing more, nothing less. By the time Haruto found Manami, she was surrounded by Shunpei, Wajima, and the Donut Shop Worker who all claim to be dating her. Exposed to have been scamming money off her dates, not seeing anything wrong about it, Manami took her leave before she is dragged underground by Gnome. Alerted by Blue Unicorn and using his Land Style to reach Manami, Kamen Rider Wizard fought off the Ghouls before saving Manami as he explained that saving her is something he must do regardless of her profession. When Gnome caused a cave in to escape him, Haruto found that Manami had left during the fight.
Since Manami went off the grid, with Koyomi unable to find her or Gnome while he takes the Smell Ring from a heartbroken Wajima as he was about to smash it, Haruto returned to Yamagata's manor where he learned that Yamagata knew Manami was playing him but felt there was a very good reason for her needing his money. After getting a call from Rinko that she got Manami's address from the Renaissance Gym, Haruto joined her and they made their way to her house. As they draw near, they found Manami attacked by Gnome with Haruto driving the Phantom off and becoming Kamen Rider Wizard to fight him. However, Gnome escaped and Haruto returned to find Manami having run off as Rinko saw him ads for the house that appeared in a childhood photograph of Manami. Catching up to Manami to give her back her photo, Haruto learned her intent is to buy back her childhood home to preserve it. Haruto told her that he understands losing a family before he and Manami see her childhood home going up in flames as they found Gnome waiting inside for them. Using Water Style to take out the flames, Kamen Rider Wizard took Manami outside and told her to not to be consumed by her past and focus on the present before going after Gnome. As Manami realized he was right, Wizard found himself in a predicament with Gnome's burrowing fighting style before becoming Kamen Rider Wizard Land Style with the Big Ring to force the Phantom to the surface so he use the Smell Ring to overwhelm his senses. Wizard then finished Gnome off with a Drill Strike Wizard kick. Soon after Manami thanked Haruto with the intent to turn herself in, Rinko arrived with Yamagata who was revealed to be buying the property so Manami can buy it from him once she served. Elsewhere, with four Phantoms killed off since Wizard's appearance, Phoenix took Gnome's failure personal as he lost it.
Unleashing the DragonEdit
At Omokagedo, Shunpei looked at the Wizard Rings that Wajima made before finding a strange Magic Ring Haruto can not use, Shunpei suggested that it was a 'dud' ring. Soon after, a White Garuda arrived with a box as the gang attempt to capture the strange PlaMonster as it let itself out. Koyomi opened the box to find a red magic stone that reacts with the 'dud' Magic Ring as Wajima took it to make a new Wizard Ring. As he walked with Shunpei and Rinko, Haruto realized the White Garuda may belong to the White Wizard before discovering a young boy, Hiroki Itoh, being attacked by Ghouls. Transforming to fight, Kamen Rider Wizard destroyed the Ghouls while Rinko and Shunpei looked after the child. When Haruto asked where the boy lives, he founnds himself kicked in the groin as Rinko founds herself arrested when she tried to keep Hiroki from running off. After clearing up things at the station, Hiroki's mother arrives as Haruto recognized her as Mikiko Itoh. As the others discussed their relation, Mikiko being the nurse who attempted to save his parents after being mortally wounded in a car crash, Haruto informed the woman of her son's endangerment while promising to look after him. However, Hiroki refused to go home as Mikiko entrusts her son to live at Omokagedo for a while. Later that night, Hiroki revealed to Haruto that ran away from home as his father never listens to him and Mikiko sides with him. But Haruto shown him that Mikiko was concerned, convincing Hiroki to talk with his mother tomorrow. Elsewhere, when refused by Medusa into letting him go after Wizard when her Ghouls failed to get the boy, Phoenix asks for Wiseman's permission to put an end to the magician's meddling in their affairs. Wiseman allowed it and gave Phoenix an idea to place the young Gate in despair. The next day, Haruto and Hiroki arrived to find that Phoenix had beaten Mikiko to an inch of her life. Haruto transformed into Wizard to fight Phoenix as Shunpei and a concerned Hiroki took the latter's mother to the hospital. As the others got away, Haruto found that Phoenix was far more powerful than the four Phantoms. He used a wide array of tactics from his arsenal only to find out that his magic was no match for the Phantom as he threw him over the bridge into the water below.
As Mikiko was hospitalized, Rinko rescued Haruto from the river and brought him back to Omokagedo. Though confused that he was saved by WizarDragon while told that Mikiko is unconscious, Haruto realized that Phoenix's objective is to kill Hiroki's parents to throw him into despair. Reaching Hiroki's father in time in Hurricane Style, yet too weak to fight, Kamen Rider Wizard spirited Hiroki's father to the hospital instead, collapsing due to his low levels of mana. After having a nightmare about Phoenix killing Hiroki's parents and the boy's Phantom manifesting, Haruto awakened to find the former alive and well while Hiroki blames himself for their condition. With the scene reminding him of his own parents, Haruto told Hiroki that this is not his fault and that he must not give up on hope. Knowing that killing Phoenix was the only way to save Hiroki's parents, Haruto confined to Rinko that he was scared of standing by and let them die but had no idea how to deal with the Phantom. However, Koyomi arrived with the ring Wajima made from the stone brought by the White Garuda. As Haruto took it, he sensed WizarDragon reacting to the ring and realizes it will let him use his inner Phantom's power.By then, Phoenix arrived with Haruto telling a concerned Rinko that seeking his inner Phantom's aid was the only way to stop the Phantom. Being beaten senselessly by Phoenix, Wizard attempted to use the Flame Dragon Ring before he managed to contact WizarDragon within his Underworld. WizarDragon warned him that although the Flame Dragon Ring can indeed channel his power, its use may eventually consume Haruto in despair. But once hearing Haruto's retort that the dragon's power is his hope, an amused WizarDragon decided to give Wizard the power he desires. With WizarDragon's powers, Wizard transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Dragon. With the tables turned, Wizard destroyed Phoenix with his Dragon Breath attack. As a few days pass, Haruto told the others that both Hiroki's parents are recovering and Hiroki is reconnecting with them. Elsewhere, Medusa mockingly mused Haruto's power to a revived Phoenix.
Section Zero and the Promise to DefendEdit
Despite urging to get back at Haruto, Phoenix was warned by Medusa to not confront him yet, as he had not fully recovered already. Soon after Haruto left the shop on patrol, operatives of National Security Bureau Section Zero barged in and took Wajima into custody. As Kizaki shown Wajima a magic stone, demanding him to make a Wizard Ring with it, Haruto saved a boy called Naoki from being attacked by the Phantom Gargoyle and learned from him that he traveled to from Akita to Tokyo, and he refused to return home until accomplishing what he came to do. Haruto then escorted him to the NSB where he found Rinko questioning Kizaki about Wajima. Coincidentally, it was with Kizaki that Naoki wanted to speak with, asking him to reveal all he knew regarding his father's death, but he refused to cooperate. Back at the shop, Naoki revealed to the others that Kizaki was his father's partner at the NSB and a close friend of his family, but he started avoiding him after his death. In the following day, Haruto confronted Kizaki questioning him if he always knew that Naoki was a Gate and asking the officer to let him take care of the Phantoms by himself but he did not listen to him. When both were informed that Naoki had went missing, they got to the place where his father died, where he was attacked again by Gargoyle. After Haruto driven away the Phantom, Naoki confronted Kizaki, accusing him of abandoning his father to die in order to save himself.
Asking Kizaki to let him talk to Naoki for a bit, Haruto learned the youth's reasons before Kizaki told him that he would look after Naoki from now on. Later, after checking up on Wajima and learning that only one with magic like Haruto can use a Magic Ring, Kizaki set up a decoy operation to keep the Phantoms' attention on him. However, fighting a losing battle against the Ghouls, Kamen Rider Wizard Hurricane Style arrived to wipe out the monsters. Suddenly, Phoenix arriveed and overpowered Wizard in Hurricane and Water Styles before "Naoki" was unmasked as Kizaki's aide. Confronting him about it, Haruto learned that Kizaki made a promise to Katayama to keep his son safe as he attempted to kill Gargoyle after the Phantom received order to create a Phantom from Naoki. However, Medusa expected Kizaki's plan as she had Gargoyle wait long enough for her suspicion to be correct when Naoki was about to be taken. Using the Plamonsters to hold Gargoyle at bay, Rinko took Naoki to safety before the Phantom catched up to them. Once knocking Rinko out, Gargoyle reveals that he killed Naoki's father when he attempted to stop him. This caused Naoki to blame himself as he began to fall into despair as Haruto arrived with Kizaki, transforming into Wizard while Kizaki tended to Naoki and told him not to give up. But as Naoki began to crack, Wizard became Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Dragon to destroy Gargoyle before entering Naoki's Underworld to exterminate the youth's inner Phantom, Jörmungandr. Later, Kizaki sent Wajima back to Omokagedo with the magic stone as his way of affirming Haruto as an ally.
The Candy of HopeEdit
With the Magic Stone from Kizaki, Wajima created two new WizarDragon-related Wizard Rings for Haruto. Wanting to reach a new level like him, Shunpei decided to accompany Haruto in his search for Phantoms, but ended up just getting himself in trouble. After being sent home, Shunpei came across one of his old upperclassmen from high school named Tetsuya Inagaki, who is an apprentice under the Wagashi shop Matsukian keep named Shozo Matsuki. Leaving Shunpei to make his delivery to a regular, Tetsuya was attacked by the Phantom Valkyrie before Haruto arrived and became Kamen Rider Wizard to fight Valkyrie before the Phantom fell back. However, the manjū that Tetsuya was delivering was destroyed and the shop ended up losing a restaurant owner as their important costumer, which worsened their situation as Matsuki was on the verge of bankruptcy. Refusing to stand by and do nothing, Shunpei ran about the city selling manjū to help the shop before a man named Katsuya Kiritani offered to buy a six month supply from Matsuki for five hundred yen a day. Accepting the offer, Matsuki baked manjū and branded them Hope (希望 "Kibō"?). As morning broke, still feeling something was off, Haruto had Yellow Kraken follow Shunpei and Matsuki to the Narushimaya department store where they were to bring the manjū to. But when Shunpei learned that he tricked them into wasting most of their supplies, Kiritani revealed himself to be Valkyrie and that his true target was Matsuki. Shunpei and Matsuki attempted to outrun Valkyrie before Haruto arrived and became Kamen Rider Wizard to fight the Phantom and his Ghouls with the Copy Ring before assuming Hurricane Style. Kamen Rider Wizard proceeded to use the Hurricane Dragon Ring to become Kamen Rider Wizard Hurricane Dragon and wipe out the Ghouls with the Thunder Ring. However, Valkyrie escaped the attack and took Shunpei hostage.
Using Shunpei as a shield before throwing him away, Valkyrie escaped as Kamen Rider Wizard saved his friend. Taking Matsuki and Tetsuya to Omokagedo, Haruto revealed how he knew Matsuki was the Phantom's true target with the monster succeeding in putting him in a spot to close business. The next day, Shunpei began to question how he could truly help Haruto as Rinko convinced him that he just needed to make himself useful by just supporting him. With a renewed outlook, Shunpei headed to Matsukian as he gave Tetsuya a similar speech before attempting to convince the restaurant owner to buy Wagashi from Matsuki again. Elsewhere, knowing he would be attacked again, Matsuki left Omokagedo the next day with Haruto and Koyomi accompanying him as he asked an old friend of his to take Tetsuya as an apprentice at Bairindo. But on the way back, learning that Matsuki's hope was for Tetsuya's success, Haruto was alerted by Koyomi to Medusa as the Phantom overheard everything. Confronting Medusa, Haruto became Kamen Rider Wizard with his Land and Water Styles ineffective against her as the Phantom defeated him. With Medusa leaving to give Valkyrie his new method of attack, Haruto and company ran to the shop and found Tetsuya creating a new batch of manjū after Shunpei talked him into continuing his mentor's legacy. By then, Valkyrie arrived to kill Tetsuya and destroy the manjū as Haruto became Wizard to fight him before becoming Kamen Rider Wizard Hurricane Style to give chase as the Phantom catched up to Tetsuya. Once Shunpei arrived and saved the last manjū from being destroyed, leaving him to look after Tetsuya, Wizard became Kamen Rider Wizard Hurricane Dragon to force Valkyrie into an aerial dogfight before destroying him. Later, though Matsukian closed, Matsuki and Tetsuya had a renewed sense of hope while Shunpei was unaware that he helped.

Return of LizardmanEdit
Haruto was taking Koyomi clothes shopping, he had made it routine that every now and then he would take Koyomi out to give her more of a normal life. Koyomi wasn't really sure about what outfits suited how, Haruto got her a beret so she wouldn't come home empty-handed. While walking, Haruto and Koyomi spotted a strange PlaMonster, Black Cerberus, following it. But while following Black Cerberus, Haruto had to leave Koyomi to follow the PlaMonster on her own as he encountered Medusa as she attacked a youth. Assuming Hurricane Dragon, Kamen Rider Wizard seemingly defeated Medusa as he turned to the youth as he offered to protect him for a while. Arriving to Omokagedo with the youth, a woman named Chizuru Manaka came by the shop, she was an old friend of the youth who reveals his name to be Satoshi Ishi, an aspiring movie director who went missing six months ago. Elsewhere, ending up in the middle of the forest, Koyomi ventures into a cave where she found a blue magic stone. As Koyomi returnsed to Omokagedo to give the stone to Wajima, Haruto and the others gone to the campus where Satoshi lived to help him finish editing his movie. However, while Chizuru told the others how he got her into acting, they found Satoshi gone. Fearing the worst, Haruto found Satoshi before finding himself evading numerous attempts on his life. Haruto learned that "Satoshi" is actually the Phantom Lizardman, the first Phantom Haruto encountered six months ago. Battling Wizard so he can escape his execution, Lizardman held Chizuru hostage being attacked by Medusa who revealed the girl to be a Gate.Haruto driven away Lizardman and Medusa but Chizuru was more worried about Satoshi's safety and ran away. Haruto revealed all the truth to the others and while Wajima started working on the new magic stone brought by Koyomi, Haruto recieved a call from Chizuru, to meet her along Satoshi in her apartment. With Chizuru still unaware that Satoshi was actually Lizardman, Haruto managed to meet her before he attacked her, but the Phantom fled after realizing how important the movie she was making with Satoshi is important to her. Lizardman stole the film and set about to destroy it in front of her to drive her into despair when Haruto realized that her hope does not come from the film, but from her feelings for Satoshi. He puts Chizuru unconscious with his "Sleep Ring" and confronted Lizardman with his two new rings. Transforming himself into Kamen Rider Wizard Water Dragon and finishing him with the "Blizzard Special Ring". After Chizuru awakened, Haruto lied to her, claiming that Satoshi left to America to flee from the Phantoms and study there. Chizuru left to move with her life, as Haruto was remembered by Rinko that despite having made the right choice, he must eventually tell her the truth someday. Meanwhile, Wiseman returned to his dwelling to discover that the magic stone he produced is missing, but does not seem surprised at all, as he was already expecting it to happen...
A Christmas MiracleEdit
With Koyomi taking him to where she found the blue Magic Stone, Haruto felt an evil presence watching them from afar before they return to the city and found Rinko in a Santa outfit as part of a mandatory police program. Alerted to a Phantom attack and coming to the aid of blond-haired man chased by Ghouls, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard to take out the grunts. Despite being informed about his situation at Omokagedo, the blonde-haired man named Tatsuro ignored their warnings and left while claiming that he has something to do by Christmas Eve. Haruto kept watching Tatsuro close as he engaged in several part-time jobs before stopping to rest as he watched over an orphanage. Haruto questioned Tatsuro about his connection with the orphanage, but he refrained from answering and left. The owner recognized Tatsuro as he left and revealed to Haruto that he was one of the orphans raised there, but he fled after involving himself in trouble some years ago. As Haruto heard about the mysterious gifts left at the orphanage in previous Christmases and realized that they were Tatsuro's doing, he went after him, just to find him with several gifts he bought with all the money he got. Realizing that it was the gifts that he brought to the children that bring him hope, Phoenix appeared before them and destroyed the gifts, driving Tatsuro in despair as he fights Haruto. In the end, Haruto defeated Phoenix once more by combining Kamen Rider Wizard Water Dragon's Blizzard magic with a Slash Strike which freezed him before being shattered into pieces.
After Haruto dived into Tatsuro's Underworld to defeat his inner Phantom Hekatonkheir, he met a Santa Claus inside there and received a present from him. Back to the outside world, after a reborn Phoenix took his leave, Haruto found that the present was the Merry Christmas Ring and used it to restore the destroyed gifts before the item faded away. As Tatsuro was caught delivering the presents to the orphanage by the owner, the two reconciled as Haruto wondered if the one who gave him the ring was the real Santa Claus himself.
A New MagicianEdit
Haruto came to the aid of a strange new Gate who was being attacked by the Phantom Manticore and a group of Ghouls when he was about to eat. With the youth forcefully dragged off by Rinko and Shunpei, Kamen Rider Wizard proceeded to defeat the Ghouls before turning his attention to Manticore in Land Style.
However, faking a retreat, Manticore poisoned Kamen Rider Wizard with his stinger before assuming his human form, a fortune teller, predicting the magician's slow and antagonizing death.
Shunpei and Rinko as the two learned of Haruto's condition and returned to Omokagedo, while losing the youth they were tasked to keep an eye on. With Red Garuda watching him from afar, the youth encountered Manticore as he gave him a free fortune to find his despair. But the youth's upbeat personality and ideals confused Manticore before Haruto and company arrived with the Phantom forced to assume his true form. With the youth enjoying the turn of events, and Haruto unable to transform due to the poison draining his mana.
The assumed Gate introduced himself as Kosuke Nitoh while revealing himself to be the "ancient wizard" known as Kamen Rider Beast, upon revealing a Magic Ring on his person. Once transformed, Kamen Rider Beast defeats the Ghouls and devours them for their magical power before donning the Chamelo Mant to fight Manticore. Though inflicted with Manticore's poison, Kamen Rider Beast used the Dolphi Mant to wash the poison off of himself and Haruto before donning the Falco Mant to finish the Phantom off and eats him.
With Haruto wanting to confirm his Phantom consumption, Kamen Rider Beast instead assumed Kamen Rider Wizard also hunted Phantoms for their magical power and warned him not to meddle with his meals, again, before taking his leave.
Haurto arrived on the scene when a new Gate, Hiroshi Oikawa, was being attacked by the Phantom Hydra, only to find that Kosuke, delighting in a pitch chance, had already confronted the Phnatom, giving Oikawa time to escape. Kosuke was annoyed when Haruto arrives. As Kosuke found himself grabbed by a furious Hydra, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard to save Kosuke before he followed suit and became Kamen Rider Beast. The Phantom fled with Beast upset that Wizard once again meddled in his feeding affairs. Later, while treated to Mayonasse Donuts, Kosuke learned of the Gates and that Haruto does not need to feed on Phantoms. When Haruto asked how he became a magician, Kosuke revealed that he was in college when he found a secret chamber in old ruins where he found a seal. Removing a ring and buckle from the seal, it caused the seal to break as Ghouls emerged. Compelled by the voice, Kosuke uses it and met the Phantom Chimera who told him that they were in a pact. However, the pact required Kousuke to provide Beast Chimera with the magical energies of Phantoms to prolong his life. Then Kosuke learned that Haruto's reason to fight Phantoms but stopped him from revealing what becomes of the Gates if he failed to protect them. The next day, with Medusa formulating a plan to rectify the new turn of events, Hydra resurfaced to find Oikawa.
While Haruto and Koyomi split up to cover ground in their search, Koyomi encountered a strange man she identified as a Phantom who gave her a yellow Magic Stone meant for Haruto. Elsewhere, Kosuke was approached by Medusa who claimed that Haruto lied about not being after the Phantoms for their energy. Revealing that the despairing Gates are needed to procreate her kind, Medusa talked Kosuke into killing Haruto in return for a new supply of Phantoms to prolong his life. Not knowing who to believe, Kamen Rider Beast jumped into Kamen Rider Wizard's fight with Hydra and turned it into a three-way battle as he intended to give Oikawa to the highest bidder.
Today first, Tomorrow secondEdit
When the three-way battle between Kamen Rider Wizard, Kamen Rider Beast, and the Phantom Hydra reached a stalemate, Nito grabbed Oikawa and flees away with him. Back at the Omokagedo, Haruto explained the situation to the others while Wajima started working on the magic stone brought by Koyomi. Unable to draw the Phantom from Oikawa by himself, Nito accompanied him to his home and noticed a woman's painting in the wall. Nito learned from him that it is a portrait of his late wife he painted and it was the only thing that keeps him going in life. They were joined by Haruto, Shunpei and Rinko, and Nito got desolated when he learned from Haruto that a Phantom is born at the expense of the Gate's existence, as despite his will to keep living, he did not want to do so by taking the lives of others. In the following day, Haruto and his friends decided to take the painting to Omokagedo for safe keeping but they were attacked on the way by Hydra and while Haruto is distracted fighting him, his Ghouls destroyed the portrait, driving Oikawa into despair. Nito joined the fight and to make amends for all the trouble he caused, he dived into Oikawa's Underworld to destroy his inner Phantom, while Koyomi brough two new rings crafted by Wajima for Haruto. Watched from afar by the same Phantom who gave Koyomi the magic stone, Haruto used the rings to transform into Kamen Rider Wizard Land Dragon and restrained Hydra with the Gravity Ring's magic before finishing him with the Special Ring as Nito mounted in the Beast Chimera to hunt down the inner Phantom. Despite being saved, Oikawa grieved over the lost portrait until Haruto shown him a letter from his wife he found at the back of the frame addressed to him. Knowing that her final wish was for him to keep painting, Oikawa found the will to move on with his life. Haruto offered himself to destroy Nito's inner Phantom and save him from dying by mana depletion, but he refused and took his leave, saying that they will meet again in the future.
Learning The TruthEdit
A young housewife called Shiho Arai was attacked by the Phantom Beelzebub, Haruto arrived on the scene and fought his Ghouls as Kamen Rider Wizard Hurricane Style while Shunpei took the housewife to safety. Finding that protecting the Gate is tougher than they thought, Haruto used his new Dress Up Ring to accompany her to her formal luncheon. However, both there and then at a dance class, Haruto found Shiho being completely ignored to her dismay. Even Shunpei shoved her aside in an occasion after offering to be her friend, with Haruto realizing that everyone she has ties with was under Beelzebub's control. Confronting Beelzebub as he had Shiho's husband abandon her, Haruto transformed to fight the Phantom's Ghouls using the new Excite Ring as Kamen Rider Beast joined the fray. However, Beelzebub revealed his ability to bend time-space and proceeded to overpower Wizard.
New Power and The Dragons' Wild DanceEdit
Realizing that Beelzebub's time-space bending has him at a disadvantage, Kamen Rider Flame Dragon was defeated. Luckily, he was saved by the White Wizard who took him to a strange altar. Coming to, Haruto was told of a ritual to become stronger by drawing the full potential of his inner Phantom and he accepted to do it after being warned of the risks. Enduring the pain, Haruto's gained a manifestation of his mana: The Drago Timer. Rinko returned, revealing Beelzebub's method of control was through his familiars, having been informed of this by Phoenix, unbeknownst to Haruto. Rinko, Koyomi, Shunpei, and Nito managed to hunt down and neutralize all of Beelzebub's familiars. Elsewhere, revealing that the familiars where nothing more than receivers for his energy, Beelzebub latched an attack with his controlled victims with Koyomi attempting to get Shiho to safety as Kamen Rider Beast was beaten by Phantom. Luckily, Haruto arrived and transformed to battle Beelzebub before assuming Flame Dragon form to summon the Drago Timer. Using the Drago Timer, Kamen Rider Wizard created three manifestations of his Water Dragon, Hurricane Dragon, and Land Dragon forms. With his time-space ineffective, the Wizards finished Beelzebub off with their Dragon Four-Mation followed by a quadruplet Slash Strike with his victims restored to normal.
Haruto explains his newly aquired Drago Timer to everyone in Omokagedo. Haruto and Shunpei decide to call Rinko for a lunch but they oddly can't contact her. Haruto decidesthey should buy some groceries without her, despite his suspicions. Haruto and Shunpei soon run in to Kosuke in his new home. Kosuke then invites (or rather, gathers) the two for a lunch using their groceries. Haruto then goes to Dont Shop Hungry, while Shunpei buys more food. After a while, Haruto finds a panicked Shunpei, who gives him Rinko's bloodied ID. Haruto, after questioning his assistant about where he got it, decides to split up. After contacting Kizaki, Haruto meets Sora for the first time. Haruto then fights Sora, who coyly commented that it was a bad introduction. Sora then tells Haruto to save Rinko, laughing as he vanishes. Arriving in a abadoned warehouse, Haruto meets Phoenix once again, who revels at the mage's arrival. Haruto transforms into Kamen Rider Wizard and begins the battle. Wizard changes to Water Dragon, since he had defeated Phoenix with Water Dragon. However, Dragon Freeze is useless, much to Wizard's shock; Phoenix reminds him that "the same trick won't work on me twice!". Wizard decides to try Hurricane Dragon and uses Hurricane Dragon Strike Wizard then Hurricane Dragon Slash Strike, which successfully defeat Phoenix. However, Haruto had another surprise coming, much to his horror; Phoenix could now resurrect with no delay. Wizard then tries to use Dragon Levitate in Land Dragon, hoping it would delay the Greater Phantom enough to allow him to get to Rinko. However, Phoenix is strong enough to break free from the stronger gravity of Dragon Levitate. Tired from the extended duel, Wizard could only watch Phoenix atttacks with blazing wings.
The Final Battle Against PhoenixEdit
With Haruto is completely exhausted from the fight, Phoenix continue to beating him up without mercy, overpower the Wizard Land Dragon. When Phoenix was about to deliver the final blow to Haruto, Nitoh was arrived to take on Phoenix, thanks to a distraction in the form of Kamen Rider Beast, Kamen Rider Wizard had change into Hurricane Dragon, takes Rinko and escapes, leaving Beast to keep Phoenix busy.
After Haruto makes sure that Rinko is ok, he runs into Kizaki at the hospital, who reminds him that he was the one who got Rinko into the fight with Phantoms in the first place. His resolve shaken, Haruto returns home. However, Koyomi quickly reminds him that he kept her from throwing her life away, and that he is everyone's final hope. He catches Kyosuke and prevents him from fighting Phoenix, and heads off to the final battle.
Meeting his long-time foe at the place they first fought, Haruto assumes Flame Dragon immediately. At first at a disadvantage, Haruto takes the fight away from the city and uses the DragoTimer to start gaining the upper hand. However, Phoenix is far too powerful, and the four Wizards only even the fight out, at best. But Haruto, resolved, decides to unlock the DragoTimer's true potential, and assumes All Dragon for the first time. After an impressive elemental display, Haruto lands a fatal blow with his claws. Phoenix reminds him that he'll simply resurrect, but Haruto coldly tells Phoenix that immortality has a price before tossing him into the Stratosphere and using the All Dragon Burst to send him hurtling into the sun. As Phoenix begins his eternity of death and rebirth, Haruto ends the fight with a cold truth; "There will be no Finale for you."
Both Haruto and Shunpei noted that Nito was being oddly giddy, he revealed that Rinko called him to meet her, mistaking it for an invitation for a date just to later realize that she had actually came with his grandmother Toshie Nito who intended to take him back to Fukui. Not wanting his grandmother to know about his predicament, Nito ran off with Haruto and Rinko in pursuit. As Shunpei gave a saddened Toshie a tour of the city to cheer her up, they were attacked by the Phantom Weretiger who recognized Toshie her as a Gate, and Shunpei fled with her while calling Haruto and the others. Arriving, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard with Nito eventually becoming Kamen Rider Beast at a secluded location. Assuming a made-up persona, "The Magical Girl, Beast.", in order to deceive his grandma, Kamen Rider Beast fought Weretiger before he retreated as Wizard joined the fray. Later, while Toshie spent the night at Omokagedō while giving Shunpei her side of the story while being assured that that he cares for her, Nito revealed to Haruto how his grandmother always hounded him for his safety before he left for his exploration and asked him to take his grandmother home in his place. The next day, after being paid a visit by Gremlin, Weretiger poses as a bus driver to capture Toshie while leaving Haruto in the dust. However, Nito was following his grandmother in disguise and is forced to reveal his identity as Kamen Rider Beast to her when he transformed. Luckily, Kamen Rider Wizard intercepted the bus with the Machine Winger, assuming Water Style to fight as Beast uses the Chameleo Mantle. During the course of the fight, Weretiger had them end up with the other's ring, resulting in Wizard successfully using the Dolphi Ring to perform a new power to Beast's dismay as Haruto's rings wouldn't fit in his Beast Driver, using the Buffa Mantle instead. Upon hearing that her grandson needs to eat Phantoms to survive and that Phantoms are born from Gates thrown into despair, Toshie decided to offer herself to Weretiger without resistance before Shunpei took a hit meant for her. But before Kamen Rider Wizard can reach him, Gremlin arrived and worsened matters by taking Shunpei as a hostage while telling the Kamen Riders he will later inform them of a location where they can exchange their friend with Toshie.
The Choosing of the LivesEdit
Back at the Omokagedō, Toshie revealed to them that her intention to become a Phantom was so that Nito would consume her, as he needs the mana of Phantoms and Ghouls to survive. As he reprimanded his grandmother for her drive to sacrifice herself for him, he remembered that he had hidden the Green Griffon in Shunpei's bag to follow him. Haruto and Rinko then traced the Green Griffon to an abandoned bowling alley, but instead of Shunpei, they met Medusa, and they realized that Gremlin had seen through Nito's plan and led them away from the place where Shunpei was being held by Weretiger and took the opportunity to reveal the location for the exchange before fleeing. Meanwhile Nito finally realized that despite her strictness, Toshie always cared for him and finally reconciled with her. The time for the meeting came, and just as asked, Nito brought Toshie and exchanged her for Shunpei after also surrendering the Beast Driver to Gremlin and Weretiger. Gremlin then attacked Nito, realizing that Toshie's grandson is the source of her hope and destroying him would certainly drive her into despair. However, they soon found that Nito was being protected by magic Haruto cast on him with the Falco Ring and Haruto took the opportunity to rescue Toshie and return the Beast Driver for him. Now having to confront both Kamen Riders, Gremlin and Weretiger found themselves in a disadvantage and Gremlin fled away after Haruto weakened Weretiger with the Drago Timer and Nito destroyed him with a Kick Strike to consume it. Some time later, Nito saw away his grandmother as she left to return home.
Academy Infiltration & the Bond of SistersEdit
As Haruto obtained a new Plamonster, the shy Violet Golem, Nito saw a schoolgirl who resembled Medusa. In his search for the girl, Nito had a run-in with Medusa, later catching the schoolgirl and ending up getting arrested. Haruto and Shunpei posed as high school students to follow the girl and learned her name to be Mayu Inamori from the three girls Medusa attacked earlier. But as Rinko found a startling fact during her research on the girl, Haruto felt there was something amiss with Mayu before Medusa appeared and gone after Mayu's friend Takako. Seeing Mayu, Medusa assumes her human form which Mayu recognizes as her older twin sister Misa Inamori. Delighting in the events of seeing her original self's twin, Medusa attacked Haruto as he became Kamen Rider Wizard while Shunpei got Takako to safety. Assuming Flame Dragon so his Drago Timer clones can hold off the Ghouls, Wizard battled Medusa as Kamen Rider Beast arrives, Kosuke having been released from jail by Rinko, and consumed the grunts. As the Kamen Riders then battled Medusa, Gremlin delighted in the new turn of events as Mayu watched in disbelief that her sister has become a monster.
Overpowering Kamen Riders Wizard and Beast, Medusa turned her attention to Mayu and assumed her original self's form before taking her leave with Rinko holding Mayu from following her. Later, as Nito and Shunpei took Takako to her home to keep an eye on her, Mayu was taken to Omokagedō to cope with the new turn of events. The next day, as Mayu receives a text message and left in secret, Haruto was informed that Gremlin had appeared to attack Takako. By the time Kamen Rider Wizard arrived to put the Phantom at a disadvantage with Kamen Rider Beast, Gremlin revealed that Mayu was a Gate and that Medusa had lured her to the house her family lived in. As Wizard Hurricane Dragon and Rinko flew off towards them, Mayu was fooled into believing that Medusa was Misa as the Phantom tricked her into giving her the keepsake and revealing that seeing their family again gave her hope. Having now what she needs, Medusa explained that the real Misa has long died and that she murdered Mayu's parents before smashing the keepsake to begin the birth of Mayu's Phantom just as Wizard and Rinko arrived too late. With Medusa keeping Haruto from interfering by completely siphoning his magic so he can watch, it seemed Mayu's Phantom was about to manifest as Medusa watched on. However, remembering Misa's words that only she decides how it starts and ends, Mayu suppressed her Phantom to Medusa's shock as the White Wizard appeared and drove her off. The White Wizard then turned his attention to Mayu to offer her the chance take revenge for her family as his apprentice, the girl choosing her new beginning as a witch.
The Stolen Belt & The Evolving Wild BeastEdit
Archeologist Osamu Nakamoto discovers in some ancient ruins a Wizard Ring similar to those used by Kamen Rider Beast and a strange rock.
At the Omokagedō, Haruto and the others learned that Takako was sent to her family overseas for her safety while there was still no news from Mayu since she disappeared with the White Wizard. Violet Golem was still refusing to leave the shop and rathers to stay with Wajima, helping with his work instead. Meanwhile Nito, in anguish for not having consumed a Phantom recently, learned about a discovery by archelogist Osamu Nakamoto of a Wizard Ring similar to those used by him as well as a strange rock. He left to meet Nakamoto, finding him under attack by the Phantom Spriggan. Spriggan was driven away by Haruto and Nito and both Nito and Nakamoto founnd themselves mesmerized with each other's relics. In the end, Nakamoto agreed to let Nito examine the ring he found once he researched his Beast Driver. Haruto then returned to the shop, sure that Nakamoto shall be safe in Nito's company, just to find that Violet Golem helped Wajima craft a storage box for the Wizard Rings, which he also uses to hide himself. Rinko informed him that Nakamoto is not held in esteem by his peers, always assigned to menial tasks, and that he may have found in Nito's relics the chance he was waiting for to make a breakthrough in his career. The next day, Nito awakened just to find that his Beast Driver and Wizard Rings were missing, just as Spriggan and Gremlin launched an attack on them. Unable to transform into Kamen Rider Beast, Nito found himself powerless while Haruto had his hands full trying to protect Nakamoto from two Phantoms at once.
Outnumbered by the enemies, Wizard used the Drago Timer to overwhelm the Phantoms while getting Nakamoto to safety. At Omokagedō, Nito fretted over losing his belt as it was the only way to feed Beast Chimera. After Haruto's attempt to use the Please Ring to give him the mana he needs failed, Rinko talked Nakamoto into letting her investigate his study for clues of the belt's whereabouts. With Rinko and Haruto getting suspicious of Nakamoto running them around, and remembering his need for acknowledgement, they revealed to Nito that Nakamoto was the one who stole the Beast Driver from Nito. When Nito confronted Nakamoto about it, he denied having it and drove everyone away from his room. Sending Shunpei to get him a replica of the Beast Driver that the Violet Golem created, the gang tricked Nakamoto into exposing where he had hidden it. Nakamoto then confessed that he was just tired of being forced to have the merits of his findings stolen by his superior and wanted to be recognized by any means. Suddenly, while calming Rinko down, Nito collapsed as he realized Beast Chimera was beginning to eat his spiritual essence away. Refusing to accept Haruto's help, Nito explained that he wants to know everything about the Phantom they are fighting and his abilities, even if it kills him. By then, having been told by Gremlin that Nakamoto's findings are his hope, Spriggan arrived with Haruto grabbing the false driver to draw the Phantom away. As Haruto used the Fall Ring before transforming to fight Spriggan, Nito reclaimed his arsenal with Nakamoto giving him the relics. Arriving just as Spriggan got the upper hand against Wizard, Nito transformed into Beast, but was still too weak to fight until he used the Hyper Ring which took him to his Underworld where Beast Chimera gave him his power just as Haruto gained his Dragon Style thanks to WizarDragon, resulting in Beast's evolution into Kamen Rider Beast Hyper, while the other relic transforms into the Mirage Magnum gun. After easily consuming the Ghouls, Beast Hyper overwhelmed Spriggan before eventually using the Mirage Magnum to finish the Phantom off with the Shooting Mirage finisher, consuming the Phantom's magical essence while Gremlin watches from afar. Later, Nito, Haruto, and the others saw Nakamoto off as he left the country, finally realizing that finding what mysteries the world holds was more important than the fame they give him.
The Day Magic VanishedEdit
The next day at the doughnut shop, with Rinko being run ragged by a series of coma victims, Haruto and Shunpei noticed a youth named Kenta trying to cheer his younger sister Shiori. Wanting to help, Haruto used his magic to perform tricks. They were forced to depart when Rinko alerted them to a new Phantom, Legion, who Nito found attacking not a Gate but a normal human, briefly fighting him as Beast before he took his leave as he was not interested in him, revealing that the Phantom was behind the coma attacks. Later, finding Kenta from before buying a flower bouquet, Haruto and Shunpei encountered Legion as he deemed Kenta of interest. Fighting Legion while Shunpei took Kenta to safety, Haruto transformed into Kamen Rider Wizard as the Phantom, who sought not Gates but people with pure hearts, deemed him a more worthy target. Even with Beast joining the fray, Legion was too powerful for the Kamen Riders as the Phantom forcibily entered Haruto's Underworld. Inside Haruto's body, Legion proceeded to destroy him from the inside as Kamen Rider Beast was forced to use his Engage Ring to stop the Phantom with Beast Chimera. But when Wizardragon joined the fray, Legion destroyed the inner Phantom with Haruto now rendered powerless.
Tears and Infinity StyleEdit
With Wizardragon destroyed, Haruto lost his magical powers and Legion fled. With Shunpei's help, Nito took him back to the Omokagedō to rest and after explaining the situation to the others, he left to confront Legion by himself. Legion kept attacking innocents, but did not finds satisfaction on it anymore, as he failed to destroy Haruto's mind completely and decided to look for him. After Nito asked him to leave Legion to his care, Haruto was approached by Kenta and Shiori who asked him to perform magic for them again, but he revealed to them that he lost his powers. Kenta then revealed that he was learning magic tricks to cheer up his sister who was about to undergo a surgery, and claimed that to them, Haruto's kindness was more important than his magic. Back at the shop, Haruto found Koyomi's Please Ring abandoned and realizes that she was missing. Knowing that without his magic, Koyomi will soon run out of mana and perish, Haruto looked for her, while Nito found and confronted Legion, but even after transforming into Kamen Rider Beast Hyper he ended up restrained by the Phantom. Legion then resumed his search for Haruto, who found Koyomi where they first met after the night of the eclipse. Koyomi also mentioned how he encouraged her at that time, and thanked him for giving her a reason to keep living to the end. When Legion found them, Haruto was beaten up by the Phantom until Koyomi ran out of mana and collapsed. As Haruto started crying for her, he asserted that he will never give up and his powers returned, creating the Infinity Ring with his tears. When Haruto equipped the Wizardriver, Wizardragon appeared before him, revealing that his determination is what brought him back to life and offered his help once more. Haruto then used the ring to transform into Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Style and summoned Wizardragon in the form of his new weapon, the Axcalibur. Legion tried to enter into Haruto's mind again with no success and after weakening the enemy, the Kamen Rider finished him with the Axcalibur's Shining Strike. Watched by the White Wizard from afar, Haruto brought Koyomi back to life and rejoiced with Nito and the others. Weeks later, Haruto caught up with Kenta and Shiori, where it was revealed that her surgery was successful. He performed magic tricks for them again only this time using some of Shunpei's rather than his true magic.

The attack damage from the All Drago Tail also has increased greatly.

All Dragon Style's ending theme is entitled "Alteration". It is also the ending theme for the Dragon Four-mation.

In this form, Wizard is armed with the Rush Skull (ラッシュスカル Rasshu Sukaru?), Rush Tail (ラッシュテイル Rasshu Teiru?), Rush Wings (ラッシュウィング Rasshu Wingu?), and Rush Hell Claws (ラッシュヘルクロー Rasshu Heru Kurō?), where each of them can use their respective elements.
This form's finishing attack is the Special Dragon Rush (スペシャルドラゴンラッシュ Supesharu Doragon Rasshu?), where Wizard attacks the enemy with all of the WizarDragon parts before striking them with a Rider Kick.

Infinity Style (インフィニティスタイル Infiniti Sutairu?) is Kamen Rider Wizard's final and ultimate form. Accessed through the Infinity Ring.
Infinity Style's punching power is more superior than the Standard and Dragon Styles, though still weaker than All Dragon Style. His kicking power is also weaker than Land Dragon, if barely. The jumping height is decreased from Flame Dragon, due to the ornaments that cover his chest. This Style's base running speed remains unchanged from Flame Dragon. Though it changes once the Infinity Ring is scanned by the WizarDriver, allowing Wizard to do bursts of blinding speed. Also, Infinity Style's defense is pushed to its peak.
When Wizard changes into this Style, the WizarDriver chants "Hi", "Sui", "Fu", "Do", "Bou", "Jaba", "Byu", and "Dogon" (ﾋｰスイーフードボージャバビュードゴーン Hī Suī Fū Do Bō Jaba Byū Dogōn?), a combination of all the chants that Wizard's forms use.
His weapon in this form is the AxCalibur, a powerful axe/sword hybrid that WizarDragon transforms into. If Wizard scans the Infinity Ring on the AxCalibur's Hand Author, he can initiate a Rider Slash called Dragon Shining (ドラゴンシャイニング Doragon Shainingu?), where Wizard charges a crazy amount of mana into the AxCalibur in Ax Mode as he spins it to enlarge it. Once at full size, Wizard then jumps into the air and winds back a chop. WizarDragon appears to infuse the blade with even more magic as Wizard comes down towards the target, and cleaves it in two with great force.
Infinity Style's ending theme is entitled "Missing Piece".
Beast Mantle (ビーストマント Bīsuto Manto?) is a special form exclusive to Kamen Rider Wizard Hyper Battle DVD: Showtime with the Dance Ring. Accessed through the Dance Ring.

Behind the scenesEdit
As Kamen Rider Wizard, his suit actor is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji?), who has been the suit actor for the majority of leading Heisei Kamen Riders (except Kuuga and Hibiki). He has also been the suit actor of several Sentai Reds including, ironically concerning Wizard, MagiRed of Mahou Sentai Magiranger.
- Haruto has some similarities of the famous Vash the Stampede from Trigun: both hide something under goofish personas, wield a pale-colored gun as their main weapon, and have a big love for donuts. Vash also has a red long coat, which Haruto gains when he uses the Flame Dragon form.
- Wizard is the first main and third overall Rider to wear a trenchcoat, the first one being Kamen Riders Orga and Yuuki.
- As recently highlighted in Super Hero Taisen, certain Kamen Riders and Super Sentai heroes share design and power motifs. Motif-wise, Wizard's Sentai counterpart would be the Magirangers, due to both have a magic-based-on-mythical-elements motif.
- Also, his usage of rings to transform is similar to that of the Denzimen.
- The Magirangers also used Oath Rings to access their Legend Powers. Coincidently, he has the ability to gain a muscular body just like one of the Magirangers (MagiGreen).
- The connection with gemstones is likewise similar to the power source of the Goggle V.
- Wizard's Dragon Styles are similar to Kuuga's Rising forms, as they are both upgrades to a Rider's pre-existing forms.
- Additionally, Wizard's All Dragon Style is reminiscent of Kuuga's Amazing Mighty Form, in that it is a further upgraded version of the main with an exponential increase in destructive power that could, in theory, be used by any of the other forms as well.
- They are also similar to the Powered Custom modes used by the Go-Busters. Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters being the first of the two Super Sentai shows Wizard aired alongside, as the Dragon Styles allow Wizard to fight with the power of WizarDragon just as Powered Custom allows the original three Go-Busters to fight with the power of their respective Buddy Roids.
- He is the third Primary Rider with a dominant dragon motif, being preceded by Agito and Ryuki.
- His origin involving an eclipse is somewhat similar to that of Kotaro Minami's and Nobuhiko Akizuki's origins.
- His usage of rings in magic rituals to combat demonic beings could be inspired by Goetic tomes, where some rituals to summon and control demons for the summoner's use required using a ring as an act of fealty or respect.
- Haruto has a similar English phrase usage in his pre-battle catchphrase, "It's show time!" with Kamen Rider Psyga that was summoned by Kamen Rider Diend in episode 17 of Kamen Rider Decade.
- Unlike the summoned Psyga, who said his phrase in fluent English, Haruto's catchphrase is "Now, it's showtime!" (さあ、ショータイムだ! Saa, shōtaimu da!?), with the word "showtime" being the only English word in his line.
- Wizard is similar to other tokusatsu hero, Madan Senki Ryukendo, as they are both mystic warriors based on dragons.
