|Kamen Rider Den-O Strike Form (Kamen Rider New Den-O)|
Kamen Rider New Den-O (仮面ライダーNEW電王 Kamen Raidā Nyū Den'ō?) is a fictional protagonist and character in the series of films for the 2007 Kamen Rider Series Kamen Rider Den-O. Kamen Rider New Den-O first appears in the 2008 film Saraba Kamen Rider Den-O: Final Countdown and reappears in the Cho Den-O Series. Later, he appeared again with Kamen Rider OOO in OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders.
Kotaro Nogami (野上 幸太郎 Nogami Kōtarō?, portrayed by Dori Sakurada) is introduced as the grandson of Ryotaro Nogami (and is consequently Hana's second cousin and Airi's second nephew) and is the newest Singularity Point who can become a Kamen Rider. Originally impressed by Owner's stories of his grandfather's time as Den-O, Kotaro eventually entered a contract with the Imagin Neotaros (ネオタロス Neotarosu?). Because the time stream had been endangered, he was called by the past's Owner to fight the new threat, picking up the slack from his grandfather whom he has a grudge against for both naming him and inheriting his bad luck. To further distance himself from Ryotaro, Kotaro renamed his Imagin partner Teddy. However, Kotaro regains respect for his grandfather as they restore the time stream.
Like the other Riders in Kamen Rider Den-O, New Den-O has access to multiple forms. The first is seen in Saraba Kamen Rider Den-O: Final Countdown, and his second is first seen in Cho Kamen Rider Den-O & Decade NEO Generations: The Onigashima Battleship. However unlike the original Den-O, when Kotaro is possessed by any of the Taros, he does not change form; the Imagin instead becomes a weapon based on their abilities.
- Rider height: 194cm
- Rider weight: 92kg
- Punching power: 6t
- Kicking power: 7t
- Maximum jump height: 38m
- Maximum running speed: 100m/4s
Strike Form (ストライクフォーム Sutoraiku Fōmu?) is the default form of New Den-O, able to wield the Macheteddy to perform his Counter Slash. Strike Form is also able to use the Taros in the form of the Kintaono, the Uratazao, and the Momotaken.
Vega Form (ベガフォーム Bega Fōmu?) is the form of New Den-O that first appears in The Onigashima Battleship. Kotaro allows Deneb to possess him and use his abilities, his Denkamen made up of a spool of thread much like Zeronos' Vega Form. In this state, New Den-O can use his DenGasher in Naginata Mode (ナギナタモード Naginata Mōdo?). This form is assumed automatically following Deneb's possession of Kotaro.
The New Den-O Belt (NEWデンオウベルト Nyū Den'ō Beruto?) is Kamen Rider New Den-O's transformation belt that is actually the same Den-O Belt in aged looks. It is affixed with a device known as the SetTouch (セタッチ Setacchi?) in the Terminal Buckle (ターミナルバックル Tāminaru Bakkuru?), which can read a Rider Pass (ライダーパス Raidā Pasu?) and the Imagin contained on it. When the Rider Pass is swiped across the SetTouch, Kotaro transforms into New Den-O.
The Machine New Den-Bird (マシンNEWデンバード Mashin Nyū Denbādo?) is New Den-O's bike that is able to launch from the DenLiner. While docked in the New DenLiner, it serves as the control mechanism for the train. When a Rider Pass, along with a Rider Ticket, is inserted into the Den-Bird while it is docked in the New DenLiner, the date on the ticket becomes New DenLiner's destination. Like the model Den-O uses New Den-O's Den-Bird is based on a Honda XR250.

The Combination Armament New DenGasher (連結武装NEWデンガッシャー Renketsu Busō Nyū Dengasshā?) is modeled after a bullet train and is composed of four separate parts (Sword, Gun, Ax, and Grip) that, when not in use, are attached to the New Den-O Belt. It is the same model as Den-O's. In Strike Form, New Den-O can use the weapon in sword mode, although by preference he uses the Macheteddy most of the time. The weapon is also used by his Vega Form in a formation when the four parts are linked together in a straight line, one by one - Sword, Gun, Ax, and Grip in that order. Once complete, the New DenGasher extends itself until it reaches the size of a naginata.
New Den-O has three different Full Charge (フルチャージ Furu Chāji?) finishing moves, two for his initial Strike Form.
- When in Strike Form, Full Charge is used in conjunction with the Macheteddy to execute the Counter Slash (カウンタースラッシュ Kauntā Surasshu?) downward slash.
- When in Strike Form, Full Charge to execute the Rider Kick called the Strike Spurt (ストライクスパート Sutoraiku Supāto?).
- When in Vega Form, Full Charge is used in conjunction with the New DenGasher to execute the Brandish Dive (ブランディッシュダイブ Burandisshu Daibu?), running through the opponent while swinging the New DenGasher at him.
New Den-LinerThe New DenLiner (NEWデンライナー Nyū Denrainā?) is New Den-O's transportation system, a bullet train mainly used for traveling to other times. It is similar to the DenLiner, but is blue to match New Den-O's color scheme. Like the DenLiner, a DenBird is usually required for the train to move, though it can be substituted with an exercise bike.
- Kotaro is the only Movie Exclusive Rider in Den-O that isn't a villain or antihero.
- He is also the first movie-exclusive Rider to have many appearances in other movies.
- The way his Rider System works is similar to Zeronos's Zero Form, where his Imagin becomes a weapon for him to wield.
- Kotaro shares his name with the Showa Rider Kotaro Minami.
