Story

Shinnosuke Tomari is a former elite police officer in the Metropolitan Police who after an event that traumatized one of his colleagues has been "demoted" into the Special Investigations Division, a group that looks into the stranger happenings in the city, particularly the "Heavy Acceleration" events that leave people unable to move that the public have termed the "Slowdown." When he is chosen by the Drive Driver and Tridoron, Shinnosuke transforms into Kamen Rider Drive and is tasked with battling the Roidmudes who wish to take over the world by eliminating humanity.

Notes

  • This is the first Kamen Rider series since Kamen Rider Fourze in which the riders are actually referred to as Kamen Riders.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have an automobile motif, and the second series to have an element of detective story since Kamen Rider W.
  • From episode 2 onwards, this is the first Neo-Heisei Kamen Rider series that does not use cold opens.
  • This is the first Neo-Heisei Kamen Rider series without a cameo appearance from any of its characters during either the previous Rider's summer movie or final episode.
  • Takahito Omori, one of the producers of the show, called Kamen Rider Drive a tribute to the 1982 American television series, Knight Rider, quoting it as "Kamen Rider meets Knight Rider" in an interview.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season to have the opening theme be sung by a singer who has portrayed a Kamen Rider in the past. In this case, Mitsuru Matsuoka, who played Katsumi Daido (Kamen Rider Eternal), and later, Kamen Rider 4.
  • This is the first Kamen Rider season with a "monster of the fortnight" format to have three-part episode plots (9-11, 31-33, 34-36) that is not close to the final episode.
