―Kabuki mocking Kaendaishou in a staged act[src]

Kamen Rider Kabuki (仮面ライダー歌舞鬼 Kamen Raidā Kabuki, lit. "Masked Rider Festive Demon") is a Kamen Rider and the main antagonist of the Kamen Rider Hibiki movie Kamen Rider Hibiki & The Seven Senki.


Kabuki is a Taiko Oni and is one of the antagonists in the movie, having double-crossed Asumu and the others into believing he cares for humans (as per his staged fight with a Makamou). He also caused trouble among the seven Oni when they were accused of attacking humans (with Nishiki's weapons found beside a murdered man, while it was actually him who committed it).

He revealed that he was disillusioned with his relation with humans because no matter how hard he fights and risks his life for them, they just call him an Oni, a monster, or an animal. Thus he forms a pact with the Makamou to become one of them. He has a soft spot, however, for children because even upon his defeat by Hibiki and death at the hands of Hitotsumi, he pleads for Asumu's safety.
