This article is about a/an rider form used by several identities in Kamen Rider 555.
Kamen Rider Faiz

Kamen Rider Faiz

Kamen Rider Faiz (仮面ライダーファイズ Kamen Raidā Faizu, Masked Rider Faiz) is the main protagonist of the 2003-2004 Kamen Rider Series installment Kamen Rider 555. Its gear is the first of the Rider Gears seen in the series. Its motif is based on the Greek letter phi (Φ).

Kamen Rider Faiz may refer to any the following characters.

Faiz Gear

The Faiz Gear was the second set of Kamen Rider Gear developed by the Smart Brain Corporation to protect the Orphnoch King. The Faiz Gear had less power than the original Delta Gear, but had a much greater functionality. Like most of the Rider Gears that Smart Brain developed, the Faiz Gear can only be worn by Orphnochs or humans implanted with Orphnoch DNA.

Transforming into Kamen Rider Faiz burns Orphnoch DNA, so humans who have been implanted with this DNA will quickly run out and no longer be able to use the Faiz Gear. Humans with insufficient DNA are rejected by the Faiz Gear with the word 'error'. Orphnochs may use the Faiz Gear more often (in their human form only), but their DNA breaks down with continued use.


Original Series

In the original Kamen Rider 555 series, its first known, and primary wearer is Takumi Inui.

The Faiz Gear was stolen and utilized (all in different occassions) by Akai, Naoya Kaido, and Takuma Itsurou. Masato Kusaka used the gear once to trick Kiba and Takumi into thinking they betrayed each other.

During the short time Takumi was going through a crisis, Kiba temporarily used the Gear until he returned. By the end of the series, the Gear was still intact.

Kamen Rider Decade

In an alternate version of reality where Kamen Rider 555 takes place that appeared in Kamen Rider Decade, the Faiz Gear is only shown to be used by Takumi Ogami himself.

D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4

In an alternate timeline created by Shocker, the Great Leader of Shocker gains a physical appearance similar to Takumi Inui and transforms into Faiz via the Legend Faiz Signal Bike.

  • Maximum Jump Height: 35m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100m per 5.8 seconds

Once transformation is completed, the Faiz Armor has several key features in its design to offer protection to the user. Like all Rider gears, the Faiz armor manifests when the Faiz Driver generates Photon Blood (フォトンブラッド Foton Buraddo), a glowing substance that generates the soft Sol Foam (ソルフォーム Soru Fōmu) suit, Sol Metal (ソルメタル Soru Metaru) armor, and Fullmetal Lung (フルメタルラング Furumetaru Rangu) chest armor via traveling through the red Photon Streams (フォトンストリーム Foton Sutorīmu) that ends at the Photon Terminals (フォトンターミナル Foton Tāminaru) at the gauntlets and Power Anklet (パワーアンクリット Pawā Ankuritto) greaves, the right Anklet having an Energy Holster (エナジー ホールスター Enajī Hōrusutā) that the Faiz Pointer can be connected to.

The helmet is unique due to its Global Feeler (グローバルフィーラー Gurōbaru Fīrā) antenna to link up to Smart Brain's networks and the Ultimate Finder (アルティメットファインダー Arutimetto Faindā) visor lenses that gives Faiz incredible vision to see in darkness, giving the illusion of a glowing eye, and a limited amount of x-ray vision.

Rider Statistics

  • Height: 186cm
  • Weight: 91kg

Ability Parameters:

  • Punching Power: 3.75t
  • Kicking Power: 7.5t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 52.5m
  • Maximum Running Speed: 100m per 0.0058 second
  • Axel Grand Impact: 7.8t

Axel Form (アクセルフォーム Akuseru Fōmu) is a form where Faiz can now move at the speed of sound for usually 10 seconds, his physical attacks also becomes 1.5 times stronger and he can perform a new variety of his regular finishing techniques.

The wearer must be in Faiz’s basic form to transform, with the Faiz Axel watch attached, transferring the Axel Memory from it to the Faiz Driver. When this is complete, the Full Metal Lung chest plates will rise out of their recesses and rotate from the scapula to form shoulder pads and reveal the Faiz Core in the center of the chest.

The Sol Foam remains black, while the Photon Streams turn silver and the Ultimate Finder turns red and "Start Up" begins. Once Faiz has reverted after "Time Out", the Mission Memory keys are returned to their respective holders. The transformation usually fatigues Faiz and has never been done 2 times in the same scene. This ability was used mainly by Takumi, the suit's predominant user, though Yuji used it once when he took over temporarily as Faiz when fighting Pigeon Orphnoch.

  • Weight: 94kg

Ability Parameters

  • Punching Power: 9t
  • Kicking Power: 18t
  • Maximum Jump Height: 55m

  • Blaster Crimson Smash: 120t

Blaster Form (ブラスターフォーム Burasutā Fōmu) is the most powerful form of the Faiz Gear, the amount of Photon Blood that the Faiz Gear produces increases to the extreme where it overflows from the Photon Streams and spread itself over the Sol Foam and the Sol Metal, changing their color to red, and changing the Photon Streams jet black.

Faiz also receives a new, more powerful, version of the Full Metal Lung, with a backpack-like device attached to it called Photon Field Floater (フォトンフィールドフローター Foton Fīrudo Furōtā), which releases constant waves of Photon energy to give Faiz Blaster flying capacities.

The Photon Field Floater, however, can be used as a weapon by swiveling the exhaust ports onto the shoulders, which are then dubbed the Bloody Cannons (ブラッディーキャノン Buraddī Kyanon). The shots fired from the Bloody Cannons are focused Photon energy.

In Blaster Form, Faiz inputs all his codes directly on the Faiz Blaster.

Rider Cards

Several Rider Cards allow Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade to access the power of Faiz.

  • Form Ride Card
    • Faiz Axel: Decade assumes Faiz's Axel Form. While in the original series, this form moved at the speed of sound for only 10 seconds, Decade's version is not affected by a time limit and allows him to match the Worms and the ZECT Riders' Clock Up system, which moves at the speed of light.
  • Final Kamen Ride Card: When Kamen Rider Decade is in his Complete Form, he uses the K-Touch to summon the Final Forms of the Nine Heisei Riders. After he presses the Rider's symbol, a card of that Rider's Final Form appears in a set of nine on Kamen Rider Decade's chest. The Faiz Blaster card summons Kamen Rider Faiz Blaster Form, armed with the Faiz Blaster. Using the Faiz Final AttackRide card allows Decade to execute a Photon Buster-style attack alongside Faiz Blaster Form.
  • Attack Ride Cards: These cards allow Decade to perform any of their own attacks, Decade is also able to use any signature attacks of whatever Kamen Rider he has transformed into.
    • Autovajin: As Faiz, Decade turns the Machine Decader into the Autovajin, Faiz's own motorcycle, which goes into Battle Mode. This also allows Decade to access the Faiz Edge via the Autovajin's right shoulder.
  • Final Form Ride Cards: The Faiz Blaster card transforms Faiz into a large laser cannon, similar in appearance to Faiz's own Faiz Blaster weapon.
  • Final Attack Ride Card: With the Faiz Blaster, Decade shoots an energy drill at the enemy before performing the Decade Photon, a powerful laser blast with some recoil, which is similar to Faiz's Crimson Smash kick.


  • Although the name "Faiz" of Kamen Rider Faiz is from the Greek word/symbol Φ's (Phi's), the "Faiz" spelling is maybe a misspelling of the word "Fives". This is the same as "Kaixa" of Kamen Rider Kaixa which can be interpreted as "Kaizer/Kaiser" (in Japanese, Kaiser (カイザー) is pronounced as "Kaizā").
    • Incidentally, Faiz means "victorious" in Arabic (فأز/fa'iz), which references to Faiz's victory over Smart Brain's Orphnoch plot by rending the Orphnoch King comatose.
  • Despite being referred to as "FAIZ," other variations in his name include the following:
    • Kamen Rider 555
    • Kamen Rider Phi
    • Kamen Rider Fives
    • Kamen Rider Phi's
    • Kamen Rider Φ's
  • The name of Faiz's Axel Form may refer to the "axle" (different spelling; "axel" is a figure skating move named after a person) that a vehicle's wheels spin on to move, or may be a mistaken Romanization of "accel(erate)", meaning to change speeds, usually to become faster. The latter makes sense because Axel Form's ability is a burst of super speed, and it is later also used for Kamen Rider Accel.
  • Faiz holds a tie of the most known users with Drive and Delta at 9 users.
  • Faiz is the safest Gear compared to other Smart Brain Gears as it does not cause as much side effects as the other Gears.
  • The Faiz Gear is the first "talking" transformation device within the franchise.
    • Although the Visors of the Mirror Riders talked, the belts themselves didn't.
    • The Faiz Phone is similar to the DegitaizerIcon-crosswiki and KeitaizerIcon-crosswiki of Denji Sentai MegarangerIcon-crosswiki; likewise, both require number codes for activation and, similar to the Keitizer, is the first cell-phone based Rider Gear.
