History

First

The Katana Gamma was one of the first two Gamma which were summoned in a night-time ritual performed by Chikara Saionji, providing inanimate objects for them to immediately evolve. Katana and Yari proceeded on their hunt for the Ghost Eyecons the following day. While wreaking havoc the Gamma eventually came across a postman who proceeded to the Daitenku Temple to deliver a package to Takeru Tenkuji on his 18th birthday. The package, been sent by Takeru's deceased father ten years prior, contained a Ghost Eyecon which made him the target of the two Gamma as they caught up with it. Being the only one who could see the Ganma due to holding the Eyecon, Takeru tried to fight them off to protect his friends Akari Tsukimura and Onari. With the Gamma demanding that he give them the Eyecon, Takeru refused to give up his father's gift, confident that he could fight them if he could see them, only to be die by the Katana Gamma's hand.

However, the slain youth was resurrected by Sennin, who granted him a half-life to fight the Gamma as Kamen Rider Ghost. Guided by Yurusen, Takeru used the Ghost Eyecon which now contained his soul with the Ghost Driver to transform for the first time as he engaged the Gamma. With Yari Gamma becoming the first of the Ganma to be destroyed by Ghost as he performed his Omega Drive finisher for the first time, the Katana Gamma fled as Takeru pursued him on his motorcycle which would become the Machine Ghostriker as he transformed again. Beaten back by Ghost, with the battle taken to a vacant beach, the Katana Gamma used a batch of Gamma Eyecons to summon a force of Gamma Commandos to back himself up against the Kamen Rider. Summoning his Gan Gun Saber, Ghost was quickly overwhelmed in the ensuing sword fight, but his persistence, inspired by the legendary Miyamoto Musashi who fought 100 opponents at once, allowed him to synchronize with Musashi's soul. Using the newly created Musashi Ghost Eyecon to assume the Musashi Damashii, with Musashi's Parka Ghost taking out a few commandos by itself, Ghost swiftly destroyed all the Gamma Commandos with his Gan Gun Saber's Nitouryu Mode, leaving the Katana Gamma the last standing. Engaging Ghost himself, the Katana Gamma was quickly beaten by Ghost in his new form before being destroyed by the Kamen Rider when he performed the Omega Slash finisher. Eyes Open! It's Me!

Second

Some time later, Alain summons a Gamma Eyecon and Zanbato, recreating the Katana Gamma, alongside the Planet Gamma. Together both attack Takeru, who recognizes the Katana Gamma as the one who killed him. Kamen Rider Specter arrives to help in the battle, taking on the Planet Ganma. Meanwhile, Takeru has advantage over the Katana Gamma, this time using the electric powers of the Edison Damashii. However, the Planet Gamma block his final attack and both escape.

Later in the same day, the Katana Gamma confronted Takeru again. It's revealed that the Gamma can use the Tsubame Gaeshi (燕返し lit.“Swallow Reversal”) attack, attacking with a speed that far surpasses even Kamen Rider Ghost's Toucon Boost form. However, following Onari's advice, Takeru uses the Goemon Damashii, gaining agility and power surpassing the Katana Gamma and destroying him once again. Exciting! A Free Man!

Forms

KRGh-Ganma Eyecon

Gamma Eyecon

Katana Ganma remains

Katana Gamma's Gamma Eyecon, along with a Zanbatō.

Katana was created from a Gamma Eyecon (ガンマアイコン Ganma Aikon) and merged with a Zanbatō, provided by Chikara Saionji's hand.

This Eyecon is later seen when Kamen Rider Ghost Musashi Damashii used his finisher to defeat Katana, falling to the ground from the death of Katana's Primal Body, along with the zanbatō that formed from the Gamma's jettisoned Parka Ghost, where it ultimately explodes.

KRGh-Ganma base

Gamma Assault

The Gamma Assault (眼魔アサルト Ganma Asaruto, lit. "Eye Devil Assaut") are Gamma born from the Gamma Eyecon. They first appear in Primal Body (素体 Moto-tai). Gamma Assaults do not possess unique abilities of their own, but can gain powers of their own through being infused with an object around them.

Powers and Abilities
Intangibility
A Gamma's primary ability is to turn themselves invisible and intangible to the public. Those whom wielded an Eyecon are capable of witnessing them.
Infusion
Gamma can infuse themselves with ordinary objects, converting said object into a Parka Ghost, to achieve a unique evolved form. Should the Gamma be defeated, the object will be restored to its original form as the Ganma is destroyed.


KRGh-Katanaganma

Katana Gamma

Through bonding with a Zanbatō, the originally generic Gamma evolved into the Empowered Gamma (強化眼魔 Kyōka Ganma, lit."Empowered Eye Devil") known as Katana.

Powers and Abilities
Intangibility
A Gamma's primary ability is to turn themselves invisible and intangible to the public. Those whom wielded an Eyecon are capable of witnessing them.
Infusion
Empowered Gamma can infuse themselves with any objects, more specifically Eyecons/Parka Ghosts to become Giant Gamma.
Arm Blade
After being infused/born from a sword, the Gamma possess a huge arm blade, which can cut through metal easily.
Tsubame Gaeshi (燕返し lit. "Swallow Reversal")
Sasaki Kojirō's famous technique. It allows the Gamma to fly downwards and upwards in high speeds while slashing the target. An energy aura taking a form similar to a bird surrounds the user during the attack. The speed of this attack overwhelms Ghost Toucon Boost.
Arsenal
Gamma Eyecons
As a Ganma Assault, Katana can summon footsoldier versions of his race, the Gamma Commandos, by throwing off some Gamma Eyecons.

Appearances: Episodes 1, 13

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Katana Gamma's suit actor is Yugo Fujii (藤井 祐伍 Fujii Yūgo) in Episodes 1 and Yuya Nawata (縄田 雄哉 Nawata Yūya) in Episode 13.

Notes

  • Despite its infusion object and name, the Katana Gamma's item of birth turned out to be a Zanbatō. Yet, when the blade attached to its arm, it turned into a giant-sized which is an allusion to fictional Zanbato in certain anime and manga being portrayed as a sword with huge blade.
  • Katana Gamma's battle with Kamen Rider Ghost's Musashi Damashii is an allusion to the battle of Miyamoto Musashi's battle against Sasaki Kojirō (Katana Gamma's motif as well) in 1612, which ended up with Sasaki's death.
  • The Katana Gamma has been shown recognizing Musashi and using an attack named after Sasaki Kojiro's signature technique.
