|This article is about a/an rider form used by several identities in the Kamen Rider Series.|
Kamen Rider X (仮面ライダーX Kamen Raidā Ekkusu, Masked Rider X) or X-Rider (Xライダー Ekkusu Raidā), a cyborg known as a Kaizorg (カイゾーグ Kaizōgu), may refer to any of the following characters:
For the first 27 episodes (and later in Kamen Rider Taisen), Keisuke's used the phrase "Set Up" (セタップ Setappu) and jumps into the air with his bodysuit manifesting as he removes the "Redizer" & "Perfecter" from the sides of his belt to form his helmet and then snap up the faceplate to complete the transformation. From 28 onward, Keisuke uses the phrase "Dai Henshin!" (大変身！ Dai Henshin) to transform while making a "X" sign with his arms after V3 gives him Mercury Circuit (マーキュリー回路), which greatly powered up X. As Kamen Rider X, his power apparently comes from solar and wind energy.
As a Kaizorg, Keisuke is a master of undersea combat. His exoskeleton is made of a special super alloy called Special Structure that allows him to survive and move freely in the heavy pressure of ten thousand meters below sea level along with an artificial lung to breathe underwater. Later on in the series Keisuke gets an upgrade which boosted his power three times fold meaning he can at least survive and move freely in thirty thousand meters below sea level.

Legend Rider Devices
Kamen Ride X (カメンライドX Kamen Raido Ekkusu) is the Kamen Ride Card which contains the power of Kamen Rider X. In All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, Decade Complete Form Jumbo Formation performed the Final Dimension Kick, a variation of the Dimension Kick, transforming the Shōwa Riders, including Kamen Rider X, and Heisei Riders into Kamen Ride cards for Decade to travel through as opposed to Final Attack Ride cards before hitting the target.
In theory, this card would allow Kamen Rider Decade to transform into X-Rider.
X Medal (Xメダル Ekkusu Medaru): A Core Medal bearing the mark of Kamen Rider X. The X Medal appears on-screen in Movie War Mega Max, when the Seven Legendary Riders are captured by Lem Kannagi. X, along with Amazon and Stronger, were turned into Medals (while Rider 1, Rider 2, V3, and Riderman were turned into Astroswitches) and kept in a suitcase by a member of Foundation X. The Riders were able to return back to normal when OOO inserted the Medals into the OOO Driver and performed a Scanning Charge.
X Switch (Xスイッチ Ekkusu Suitchi, Cross): An Astroswitch bearing the likeness of Riderman. It is exclusive to Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride, where it can be used by Kamen Rider Fourze to arm him with the X Module (Xモジュール Ekkusu Mojūru) on his right leg, which has an extending Ridol-like part to enhance kicking damage.
Kamen Rider X Lockseed (仮面ライダーXロックシード Kamen Raidā Ekkusu Rokkushīdo): A Lockseed bearing the likeness of Kamen Rider X, created when X was defeated in the battle between the Showa Riders and Heisei Riders. The core image depicts the Ridol while the lid backside image depicts the Ridol Stick.

It is styled for Bravo and Knuckle in the toyline.
