Kuroto Dan (檀 黎斗 Dan Kuroto) is the 30-year old CEO of Genm Corp. He is also the true identity of Kamen Rider Genm (仮面ライダーゲンム Kamen Raidā Genmu), also colloquially known as the Black Ex-Aid (黒いエグゼイド Kuroi Eguzeido). He was also the host of the Level 30 Charlie Bugster.

In a plot to revive himself following his death, Dan temporarily transformed into Kamen Rider Blade (仮面ライダーブレイド Kamen Raidā Bureido), having assumed the form of Kazuma Kenzaki.

He is then revived again as a Bugster, due to the help of Poppy by equipping him with the first Proto Mighty Action X Gashat and a Gamer Driver, calling himself New Kuroto Dan (新檀 黎斗 Shin Dan Kuroto).

History

Past

As a Teenager

Kuroto Dan young

Young Kuroto first discovered Bugster Viruses on his laptop.

16 years ago, a 14 year old Kuroto was a developer for his father's company, Gemn Corp. Kuroto was extremely talented that many of his games were bestsellers and masterpieces. During the Year 2000 problem, he discovered a computer virus which would be known as the Bugsters. One day he received fan mail from Emu Hojo, suggesting ideas for a new game. Impressed but angered, Kuroto could not believe someone else would be as talented as him. Thus, he created a game known as Mighty Action C and sent it to Emu. Emu would play it and be infected with the Bugster virus.

Sometime afterwards, Kuroto had unintentionally infected his mother with the Bugster virus. Desperate to find a way to save her, he enacted Zero Day and eventually came up with the idea, and purpose, of Kamen Rider Chronicle.

Beginning of Zero Day

Kuroto had been observing Emu from the shadows for a decade, in order to observe the development of the Bugster virus within Emu. In 2010, after Emu won the Tekken tournament against Nico Saiba, he would soon be abducted by the Next Genome Institute, whom Kuroto had hired to remove the now-mature Bugster virus from Emu's body. Shortly after the operation, the matured Bugster (later became known as Parado) was separated from Emu while the members of the Next Genome Institute vanished. Kuroto would later use the virus harvested from Emu as the basis to trigger Zero Day.

As CEO of Genm Corp.

Kuroto has been CEO of Genm Corp. for at least five years. He was present during the beginning of Zero Day, when the Bugster emerged from the glitches in ten of the games his company was developing on his desktop. Working with the Ministry of Health, Kuroto helped design the Gashats and Gamer Driver as a countermeasure to the Bugster, managing to keep his agenda for unleashing the first Zero Day hidden from the public eye by framing his father for this.

During Zero Day, Kuroto assigned Taiga Hanaya, who was a doctor from CR at the time, to become the first doctor Rider, giving him the Proto Bang Bang Shooting Gashat and also a Gamer Driver. In reality, he had been using Taiga as a test subject on finalizing the Gashat's final version. However, upon Taiga's defeat to Graphite due to the Proto Gashat's side effects on Taiga, Taiga left CR, and left his Gashat and Gamer Driver as well, while Hiiro Kagami becomes Kamen Rider Brave after the death of his girlfriend Saki Momose, who was Graphite's host. BANG, That Jerk is Coming! Kamen Rider Snipe: Episode ZERO During this time, many other casualties were also infected, including Heiji Uesugi's son, leading Heiji to investigate Zero Day for years.

Kiriya blackmail Kuroto

Kuroto is blackmailed by Kiriya.

Two years later Kuroto was confronted by Kiriya Kujo, a coroner who had found out about Zero Day after his friend Jungo died in an accident before the virus in him manifested to the real world. Kiriya was given a Gamer Driver and the Bakusou Bike Gashat in exchange for his silence. An Operation Called Dash!

Second Bugster Outbreak

"I'm terribly sorry for the long wait, everyone. It has taken over five years of development from the initial announcement. But at last, that legendary game, Mighty Action X, is complete!"
―Kuroto announced the release of his game.[src]

Kuroto as CEO, at the launch party.

Five years after Zero Day, Genm Corp. had finally completed one of the ten games, Mighty Action X. At the press release, the Salty Bugster emerged from Sota Suyama. The Bugster was defeated by Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. I'm a Kamen Rider!

Following Ex-Aid's debut, Dan called Poppy Pipopapo and ordered her to record Emu's specs as the Action Gamer using his specialized VR for later use. Ex-Aid Chapter.

Genm first TV Attacking

Genm assaults Ex-Aid and Brave with Gashacon Bugvisor.

Soon after the incident, Kuroto met with Kyotaro Hinata. Hinata thanked Kuroto for providing the Driver and Gashats. Kuroto responded humbly before asking how the incident was covered up. Sometime later, Kuroto appeared as Genm to interrupt Ex-Aid and Brave's fight against Aranbura. He attacked the two riders, allowing the Bugster to escape. After the incident, he was approached by Taiga Hanaya, who had been the rider during the first outbreak. After receiving large piles of cash, Kuroto gave Taiga a new Driver, along with the Bang Bang Shooting Gashat. Another Prodigy with No Thank You?

Kuroto was confronted by Hiiro Kagami soon after CR learned that Taiga was a Rider again. Kuroto acknowledged the incident that cost Taiga his medical license, but defended his decision, saying that Taiga was both compatible and capable. BANG, That Jerk is Coming!

Kuroto later visited CR, only to be intercepted by Taiga, who demanded that he give him a simulation by using the VR. Dan had intended to record Emu's specs again, but Taiga had confiscated Emu's Gashat beforehand. Disappointed, Dan prepared to leave, only to be threatened by Taiga to expose the Proto Gashats responsible for the Zero Day incident to the public. Leaving him with no choice, Dan finally simulated Taiga as the Shooting Gamer, but only once. After the simulation ends, Taiga asked him to give the data later and to relay his rematch acceptance challenge to Emu before he left, leaving Dan speechless. Snipe Chapter

Kuroto came to CR later to apologize, claiming that he underestimated Taiga and didn't predict the latter would take Emu's Gashat. He assured Hiiro that there would be more Gashats ready within a few days. He interrupted Brave and Snipe's fight as Genm, depleting their Rider Gauges. After Ex-Aid and Lazer defeated the Motors Bugster, he finished the monster off to prevent Lazer from getting a sample to study. Using the Shakariki Sports Gashat, he upgraded to Sports Action Gamer Level 3, taking out Ex-Aid and Lazer with one move. An Operation Called Dash!

Visiting CR again, Dan was met by Hiiro who had been waiting for him in front of the CR Lift. Hiiro demanded Dan to simulate him because he could not accept his defeat to Genm. As Hiiro asked what Gashat did Genm use, Dan revealed that Genm uses the Proto Mighty Action X Gashat, which basically had the same ability perimeter as Ex-Aid. Hearing this, Hiiro became flustered and demanded Dan to simulate him right now. Dan finally agreed to simulate Hiiro. At the Quest Gamer simulation, Dan changed the enemy to Genm and sets the difficulties to Easy (presumably to hinder him for leaking Genm's true power to Hiiro). After the simulation concluded, Dan decided to refuse recording Hiiro's data for his own good before he left. Brave Chapter

"What was that?"
"Could it be... a Kamen Rider?
"
―Deep Specter and Necrom on Genm[src]

Without speaking a word, he arrives already transformed into Action Gamer Level 2 as Deep Specter and Necrom are fighting a group of Gamma Commandos and Superiors during the final battle between Ghost and the Great Eyezer. He joins in fighting the Gamma, summoning his bike with the Shakariki Sports Gashat before performing a Critical Strike finisher to clear away the Gamma, immediately riding away. Infinity!

Pursuing Ayumu

"What... they had the same form!?"
Onari on Genm and Ex-Aid[src]

For unknown reasons, he stands holding the Shakariki Sports Gashat while looking upon the city during a lightning storm. Later, he triggers the Gashat and a purple Game Area expands from him, but it and the Gashat are pulled into a Gamma Hole resembling a Great Eye interface. When Ayumu steps out holding the Gashat, Genm tries taking it back, but is interrupted by Makoto and Alain, recognizing him from earlier. He fights Specter and Necrom using the Gashacon Bugvisor, disappearing when they counter with the Gan Gun Hand and Catcher.

The sketch Ayumu drew of Genm later leads Ghost to mistakenly attack the near-identical Ex-Aid when the Rider tries saving Ayumu from a group of Bugster Viruses and retrieve the Shakiriki Sports Gashat, but a sudden attack by Genm shows Ghost his mistake. The attack knocked away the Gashat, which he takes back before fading into thin air. Final Story (Special Edition): Future! Connected Thoughts!

Genm's True Identity

"You're like a crystal. You show the patient's heart within you...gently showering it in radiance. owever, you can't help caring for other people. But not all patients are good people. If you ever get an evil patient...who tramples on your feelings...then it's possible your crystal will lose its brilliance, smashed beyond recognition."
―Dan gave Emu a warning word.[src]

Dan calls Poppy Pipopapo and informs her that the newly-developed Gashats have all stolen by a hooded man. Dan also secretly informs Taiga and Kiriya, giving them the special stethoscope. Dan is later seen on Robots Collabos location, already transformed as Genm Action Gamer Level 2 before changing into Sports Action Gamer Level 3. Thanks to his interference, Robots Collabos is able to flee. He himself also successfully vanished.

Kuroto talks with Emu

Dan's first meet with Emu.

Dan is later seen in CR and gives a proper welcome to Emu. He asks Emu if he knows who Genm really is, and Asuna claims that the thief is Genm. After witnessing Emu quarreling with Hiiro, Dan gives chase to Emu, who fled to a helipad. There, Dan tried to comfort Emu by saying that it's only natural for a doctor to have a desire to save the patient. But, he agreed with Hiiro, since the man is responsible for the stolen Gashat. He then compares Emu to a crystal, that once shattered by a malicious patient, it won't able to shine ever again. However, Emu still persisted with his idealism and left, stating that he'll regret the day he can't save a patient, much to Dan's astonishment.

Deciding to teach Emu a lesson, Dan transformed into Genm Sports Action Gamer Level 3 and with Robots Collabos, they able to beat Brave Quest Gamer Level 2 and Lazer Bike Gamer Level 1. The thief soon joins as Emu asking Genm why did he attack the doctors, he states that he might refer to the thief. The thief later turns out to be Graphite, and this enrages Snipe as they collide with each other, ended in Snipe's defeat.

Genm soon provokes Emu that his idealism didn't work on a real battlefield, and also survival for the fittest. Finally, Emu snapped and transformed into Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 2. Ex-Aid successfully beat Robots Collabos using Mighty Critical Finish and claims the Gekitotsu Robots Gashat in the process. Ex-Aid then changed into Robot Action Gamer Level 3 and successfully beat Genm using Gekitotsu Critical Strike. Genm then retreats, while Ex-Aid roared in rage.

Game Master's talent

Dan's evil grin.

"As if! What's terrifying...is my own talent!"
―Dan shows his unhinged nature to Graphite and Parado.[src]

As Dan staggers, he reverts to Action Gamer Level 2. Dan cancels his transformation and covers his face. Graphite asked if he was afraid of Emu. Dan then shows a psychotic smile as he said that only his genius is the one thing who he feared. Parado then christened Dan as Kamen Rider Genm, as Dan showed an evil grin. Everyone Gathers for a Clashing Crash!

Genm in TVO (Lazer)

Genm in the Lazer Chapter of "Tricks": Virtual Operations

While Kiriya was recovering from his injuries late at night in the hospital, Dan forced him to use the VR and simulate him as the Bike Gamer while he was unconscious. He then ordered Kiriya to transform in order to collect his data, and stated that the simulation was a game he created, which allowed no escape from him. However, Kiriya believed he was lying, but had no choice but to listen to Dan's commands. Dan then for unknown reasons, controled Kiriya's movements to transform into Bike Gamer Level 1 and Bike Gamer Level 2, while threatening that he will let him pay the price of knowing his identity. After that, he took the Bakusou Bike Gashat out of Kiriya's Gamer Driver and inserted it into the Kimewaza Slot Holder, thus activating the finisher. However, during this time, he did not sit onto Lazer, causing Lazer to accelerate uncontrollably on his own and crashing into a wall, ending the simulation. Before he left, he threatened Kiriya to stay away from him, causing him to tremble in fear. Lazer Chapter

Collecting data for the Ultimate Game

Kuroto witnessing

Dan is watching behind Riders and Graphite.

As the Beat Collabos Bugster is fighting Ex-Aid and Brave, Graphite enters to try and defeat the Riders. Dan, who is watching from afar chooses to transform into Genm for the first time on screen and tells Graphite to retreat with the Bugster, which Graphite begrudgingly does, after which Dan himself proceeds to escape. A Hollow Beating in the Heart!

As Emu and Hiiro extract the Collabos Bugsters from Yoshio Okada, Dan intervenes and fights off both Emu and Hiiro as Sports Gamer Level 3, allowing the Bugsters to escape. When Hiiro later tries fighting the Chambara Collabos Bugster, Dan steps in again and fights Brave Quest Gamer Level 2 which gives Emu and Kiriya enough time to obtain the Giri Giri Chambara Gashat. Dan then fights Kiriya as the now Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3 after having his identity exposed. After some fighting, Dan is defeated by Lazer's Giri Giri Critical Finish, but Parado appears and creates a protective barrier to allow Dan to escape and fool Emu and Hiiro by pretending to have been the Black Ex-Aid. When Parado later comes to give Dan back his Gamer Driver and Proto-Mighty Action X Gashat, Dan concludes that no one will ever believe Kiriya now. The Reason for Some Lies!

Alone at his office late at night, Dan decided to use the VR on himself, starting the simulation by plugging his Proto Mighty Action X Gashat in the VR device. Within the simulation, he was surprised to find out Graphite was there as well. Questioning Graphite as to him almost spoiling his identity as Genm, the Bugster replied that no one cared about that, causing a vexed reaction in Dan as he held up his equipment to Graphite's confusion. Dan then transforms into Kamen Rider Genm Action Gamer from Level 1 to Level 2 before pulling out his Gashat, plugging it into his Kimewaza Slot Holder and pressing the switch, ready to activate his Critical Strike finisher. Graphite asked him if he is serious about this, to which Dan replied that he definitely was before pressing the switch again, activates his finisher with which he defeated Graphite. With the simulation concluded, Dan returned to his office where he pulled the Gashat out of the simulation device. Laughing madly, Dan boasted that no one would interfere in his way, claiming that he would create the ultimate game as he held the Proto Mighty Action X Gashat in front of the Mighty Action X poster. Genm Chapter

Dan telling Kiriya

Dan hinting Kiriya, Emu Hojo is the only one who has never received a compatibility surgery.

While sitting in his office, Parado warns Dan that while the Proto Gashats have great potential, prolonged use will damage his body. A moment later, Dan receives a call from Kiriya Kujo. The next day, Dan confronts Kiriya under a bridge, denying he knows anything about Parado before the two proceed to fight as Genm Sports Action Gamer Level 3 and Lazer Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3 respectively. The two are evenly matched and even after colliding with their respective Critical Finishers, do not revert to human form. When Kiriya questions why Dan helps the Bugster, Dan says that he does it to figure out why the Bugsters came into their world and developed the Gamer Drivers and Rider Gashats to help doing so. Dan then brings up the fact that to use the Gamer Drivers, one had to undergo a compatibility surgery, and like Kiriya, had done so to become a Kamen Rider. When Kiriya questioned why Dan is mentioning this now, Dan proceeds to hint to Kiriya that one of the Kamen Riders has not received the compatibility surgery, which Kiriya quickly identifies as Emu Hojo. Men, Fly High!

Back at his office, Dan confirmed to Parado that he had allowed Graphite to take the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z so that he would give the Kamen Riders their most challenging fight yet as he went on a rampage, causing Parado to enthusiastically voice to Dan that he scared him. Taking out the refined Drago Knight Hunter Z itself, Dan, noting that acquiring its combat data would complete the first stage, set off to deliver it to CR. Passing Taiga, who had trespassed on his premises, Dan told him that he would unfortunately not be giving this tenth Gashat to him. Arriving at CR, Dan presented Drago Knight Hunter Z, a unique albeit incomplete Level 5 Gashat, to Emu and Hiiro as the key to defeating Graphite. Dan revealed, however, that Drago Knight Hunter Z would need to be completed by defeating the Hunter Gamer, which Ex-Aid and Brave encountered as a Bugster Union within Kyotaro Hinata. Despite Dan's warning that, as a co-op 4 Player game, Drago Knight Hunter Z would need teamwork to avoid the danger of using it alone, Emu took the Gashat for himself, vowing to clear the game. Beat Up the Dragon!

Dan later watched with Parado from a distance as Emu initially failed to acquire the co-operation of his fellow Riders, assuring him that they would collect their data eitherway and that they could eventually replace the troublesome doctors with new candidates. Nevertheless, Emu ultimately achieved a collaboration resulting in the four Riders dividing and using the Hunter Gamer together to terminate Graphite, with the Proto Drago Knight Hunter Z being salvaged by Parado. With this, Dan was able to complete tests and data recording, allowing him to proceed to the next stage. Uneven Doctors!

Kuroto is holding the Ganbarizing Gashat.

Following the Dr. Pac-Man incident, Dan assembled a collection of specially created Heisei Rider Gashats. Energizing the last three of the first sixteen with his Ganbarizing machine, Dan requested that Emu return the Kaigan Ghost Gashat that he had used back to him only to arrange for him to be ambushed by a Collabos Bugster which utilized the Proto Gashats recovered from the Next Genome Institute. Coming to Ex-Aid's "aid" with a briefcase holding these Rider Gashats in hand, Dan provided him with the Full Throttle Drive which allowed him to disarm the Bugster of Proto Gekitotsu Robots. Dan was grazed by the Bugster when it changed to Proto Giri Giri Chambara, appropriately handing the Toukenden Gaim to Ex-Aid as Asuna took him to safety.

Easily managing to lose Asuna, Dan proceeded to enter the last phase of data collection on these Gashats himself as he transformed into Kamen Rider Genm, using Magic The Wizard to assume Wizard Gamer Level 2. Appearing before Ex-Aid who has just disabled the Bugster, Genm easily overwhelmed the Gaim Gamer before forcing him out of his transformation with Wizard's Critical Strike. Reverting to his default Action Gamer Level 2, Genm recovered the three Rider Gashats that Ex-Aid had just used. Announcing that he had collected all the data he needed, Genm used the power of the Legend Rider Gashats to complete his Ganbarizing Gashat. Using the blank Collabos Bugster as a conduit to harness the power of Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing, a game Emu was unfamiliar with, Genm brought forth manifestations of Kamen Riders Double, OOO and Fourze. Advancing on Emu, the three Riders were held off by the sudden appearance of Dr. Pac-Man, coming as a shock to both Emu and Genm as he presented his own three Bandai Namco Gashats. Part. I: Legend Rider Stage

While "Dr. Pac-Man" escaped with Emu, Genm and his Riders soon enough caught up with the pair as they were joined by Hiiro and Taiga. With "Dr. Pac-Man" taking his leave after providing the three doctors with his Gashats, allowing them to face Genm's Riders, Genm pursued this "Dr. Pac-Man", ultimately catching up with him before taking off his helmet, with Genm realizing his true identity as he was faced with a fourth Gashat, Taiko no Tatsujin.

After revealing himself to the other Riders, Dan revealed that there was a large amount of people infected with the Bugster virus, pointing out that no-one knows when a break-out might happen. He then challenges the other Riders to save those people with the ten Gashats, saying that it was up to them whether they will be saved or not before shooting at them with the Gashacon Bugvisor to make his escape. Upon escaping, Dan examined the new Gashat he had created: Dangerous Zombie. Who's the Black Kamen Rider?

"I'll bury you and the truth in the darkness."
―Genm before killing Lazer[src]

Soon after this incident, Dan learned that Kiriya had interrogated his father and was planning to inform the other Riders of his findings. Dan found Kiriya before the others arrived to confirm the latter's findings. Deciding that Kiriya knew too much, Dan tricked him into taking the Dangerous Zombie Gashat, pretending to offer it in exchange for Kiriya's silence. Once Lazer was weakened within inches of his life after trying to use Dangerous Zombie, Dan took the Gashat back and used it to become Genm Zombie Gamer Level X. With the massive advantage, Genm stole the Giri Giri Chanbara Gashat and mortally wounded Lazer, seconds before CR and Snipe arrived. Christmas Special: Targeting the Silver X mas!

Fight Against Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer

Deciding that the "test players" were no longer needed, Dan moved to recover all the Gashats from the doctor Kamen Riders. As the Zombie Gamer, Dan first confronted Ex-Aid and Brave was they were facing the Level 3 Aranbura Bugster. It was there that Genm first summoned the Gashacon Sparrow, with the sight of him using Kiriya's weapon enraging Ex-Aid into assuming Hunter Action Gamer Level 5 Full Dragon. Though struck by Ex-Aid's full power, engulfed in a massive explosion, Genm recovered in a cloud of purple smoke. As Ex-Aid realized that Genm's Rider Gauge was stuck at zero, Dan announced he had surpassed death and all attacks are useless against him. Nevertheless Ex-Aid kept on attacking Genm, ignoring Brave's fight with the Bugster. Triggering the Critical Dead, sending forth a horde of shadowy zombie figures, Genm nearly eliminate Ex-Aid but Brave tackled him out of the way just as the zombies exploded, with Hiiro undoing both of their transformations to remove the Game Area and escape.

At his hideout, Dan decided that he would only return to Genm Corp. after he completed Kamen Rider Chronicle, a game which soon people "would not be able to live without". He had also created a new blank, double Gashat for Parado's use, instructing him that it would need to be inserted into a Bugster to get the data to finish it, whereas humans using it would get a massive Bugster virus infection, dying instantly. Joining with Aranbura, Genm easily defeated both Snipe and Brave. Ready to kill the doctors, Genm was confronted by Emu who, to his surprise, was holding the blank double Gashat he had given to Parado. As expected, Emu used the Gashat which caused him to be overwhelmed by the Bugster virus. However, rather than sucuumb to the Game Disease, Emu unexpectedly changed and transformed the blank Gashat into a new game, Mighty Brothers XX, much to Genm's shock and Parado's intrigue. First transforming into the Level 1-esqe Double Action Gamer Level X, this new Ex-Aid proved to be a match for Genm as he attacked him before advancing up to Level XX, which had the effect of splitting him into two seperate Level 2-shaped Riders. Defined Destiny However, while Emu had became a force to be reckoned with, this split also caused him to seemingly become two distinct, conflicting individuals, with Genm using the distraction to escape with the Bugster. That night, Dan discussed Emu's survival and use of the new Gashat with Parado. Branding it a bootleg, Dan vowed to erase the data of Emu's game while creating another Gashat for Parado.

Confronting Ex-Aid, back as the Level 2 Action Gamer, Genm easily defeated the familiar Emu, asserting his place as the Game Master and demanding the new game be deleted. Emu, however dismissed his talk of games as he was operating on a patient; transforming again into Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level X then Level XX. Vowing for a perfect co-op this time, the two Ex-Aids fought Genm and Aranbura. Ultimately, the Double Action Gamer succeeded in destroying Aranbura, who was then salvaged by the Gashacon Bugvisor used by Genm, who told Ex-Aid that fate was out of his control before leaving. We're Kamen Riders!

Developing Kamen Rider Chronicle

As Revol re-emerged as a Level 5 from Nico Saiba, Dan confronted Emu again, intent on deleting the data of Mighty Brothers XX as he assumed the Zombie Gamer. Evenly matched with Ex-Aid's divided Double Action Gamer, Genm cut the battle short and escaped with Revol. Dan was confronted by Taiga with the information that Kiriya had presumably discovered and was silenced for: Emu had the Game Disease. Kuroto casually expounded: Emu was the first person ever to have the Bugster virus, being given it six years ago in an experiment by Dr. Michihiko Zaizen of the Next Genome Institute, intended to create a Bugster being. However, the virus had spread and killed everyone involved save Emu, and he was returned to his normal life without remembering the incident. Kuroto then clarified that he only killed Kiriya because his intention had been to use this information to destroy the Bugsters before leaving. Back at his hideout, Dan determined via recorded battle data that each side of Ex-Aid's Level XX (20) form had the power of Level X (10). Deciding that taking down the Double Action Gamer personally was beneath him, Dan, having created a new Gashat for Parado, gave it to him so he would be occupied having fun, which he would do so by easily defeating all three doctor Riders in his first battle. A New Challenger Appears!

When Parado returned to his hideout, Dan chided him for not bringing Emu's Gashats with him only for to Parado respond that he was only helping Kuroto so he could play Kamen Rider Chronicle; Dan conceded and agreed to let Parado defeat Ex-Aid his own way. While Revol returned, Dan assumed the Zombie Gamer to confront Ex-Aid and Brave, intending to take their Gashats himself. Initiating a Critical Dead before the two Riders could Level Up, Genm knocked them both out of their transformations. Though he was able to recover the Taddle Quest and DoReMiFa Beat Gashats from Hiiro, Dan was unable to acquire those from Emu as he was repeled by a surge of the Game Disease from within the intern. Parado showed up to tell Genm to get back in line by not attacking Ex-Aid before they both took their leave. Dan would later come back to take Snipe's Gashats while Parado fought Ex-Aid. Quickly shoving Nico aside when she attacked him with a mop, Genm successfully endured a Drago Knight Critical Strike from Snipe, recovering without a scratch. To the objection of Genm, Para-DX, having been attacked by Revol, who had moved to protect Ex-Aid as the object of Nico's stress, destroyed the Bugster who was promptly preserved by a frustrated Genm before taking his leave with Para-DX. The Paradox of Defeating M

Murdering Burgermon

Dan All Gashats

Dan vows to create Kamen Rider Chronicle, compiled from all Gashats.

While using the data of Taddle Quest in the creation of a new Gashat, Dan was informed by Parado of an anomalous Bugster who had came from Ju Ju Burger, a game previously dropped from the Genm Corp.'s line-up which was developed by Tsukuru Koboshi in Dan's absence. Initiating a Stage Select, Dan would confront Emu and this Burgermon Bugster with Parado. While Para-DX recovered the Ju Ju Burger Gashat from the Riders, Dan assumed the Zombie Gamer and proceeded to terminate the Bugster, triggering a Critical Dead against both Tsukuru and Burgermon. Stepping into save his creator, Burgermon ran into the attack to stop the zombie horde from progressing, taking the full explosion and being destroyed, with Dan forgoing the preservation procedure reserved for his own Bugsters. In a rage, Emu raged at Genm as his eyes briefly glowed red before collapsing; Genm asked Emu if something within him was making him favor Bugsters before he and Para-DX took their leave. Back at his hideout, Dan, questioned by Parado as to his elimination of the anomalous Bugster being his only objective, cited his role as the "Game Master" and claimed Ju Ju Burger as his own but not the Bugster within, stating that all Gashats would help create the world of Kamen Rider Chronicle. A Nonstandard BURGSTER?

The Truth Behind Emu's Game Disease

Dan is God

Dan proclaims himself as God.

"Emu Hojo!!! How are you able to transform into Ex-Aid...without undergoing the compatibility surgery? How are you able to create Gashats?! Why does your head hurt after transforming?! There is only one answer. Emu Hojo! You are Patient Zero...the very first person in the world...to be infected by the Bugster virus!"
―Kuroto Dan exposing the reason behind Emu's bizarre condition[src]

Dan's next move was to take Snipe's Gashats. Infecting Tsukuru with Motors, he easily lured out Emu and Taiga to fight. The battle was evenly matched until Genm triggered an outbreak, causing Ex-Aid to chase after the upgraded Motors. With the main threat gone, Genm defeated Snipe and took back the three Gashats, gloating to Taiga that it would be child's play to create a new Gashat and beat Ex-Aid. Upon creating a new Level 50 Gashat from the games he stole, Dan began to revel in his victory. Parado's insistence to beat Emu himself only caused Dan's psychosis to worsen, prompting a narcissistic rant in which he declared himself to be God, claiming Gashats as something only he could create and that Bugsters were nothing but pawns in his master plan.

Parad and Dan reacts

Spiting Parado, Dan relishes the sight of the Bugster virus consuming Emu.

When Ex-Aid came to stop Motor's rampage, Dan was ready and waiting to unveil his new creation: Gashat Gear Dual β. Using the Fantasy Gamer from the Taddle Fantasy side, Dan took out Ex-Aid with one hit. Genm disposed of the now-useless Motors before demanding Emu's Gashats, threatening to kill him if he refused. Much to his shock, Genm was stopped by Para-DX, who had grown tired of the "Game Master's" arrogance and disregard for the Bugsters. Enraged by this defiance, Genm foolishly denounced Parado as a worthless game character, sending the latter into a fit of rage and earning the Game Master a brutal and humiliating defeat. In order to punish Parado for his insubordination, Dan attempted to rob the former of his wish to fight Emu by revealing Emu's status as patient zero of the Bugster virus, laughing madly at the sight of Emu's subsequent outbreak. The Truth Exposed

Dan's victory was short-lived: rather than disappearing, Emu merely fainted, and the Bugster remained in his body. Retreating to his base and seething at the unexpected failure, Dan waited for the next outbreak before confronting Ex-Aid again. Despite the overwhelming advantage, Genm was stopped by Hiiro's unexpected interference, losing three Gashats, including the Gashat Gear Dual β. A Sudden Fantasy!?

The Enigmatic Level and Death

"You don't understand anything...Neither the reason why I obtained death data from myself...nor why I chose Dangerous Zombie for my power. While this Gashat is Level 10...it is also Level X. That means...it's an unknown number."
―Genm explains why he chose Dangerous Zombie in the first place and the true meaning of Level X to Parado.[src]

Kuroto meets with Parado yet again after their fallout in his secret office, showing hostility. But Parado then leaves, excited to fight Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50. Kuroto, later on, stage selects with Vernier, Emu, and Poppy in a deserted valley. Claiming Emu's fear of transforming no longer a threat, he transforms and proceeds to kill them both. But Taiga suddenly appears, with the Gashat he "took" from Hiiro at the abandoned hospital. As Snipe Simulation Gamer Level 50 takes on the current Bugster, Emu finds resolve in his responsibility for his patients and his body and uses the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat. Kuroto escapes yet again while absorbing the death data from Vernier, after being defeated. As Kuroto, very exhausted now, hides back and sees Parado, waiting there for him to finish Kamen Rider Chronicle. But Kuroto dismisses that and proceeds to tell him that the reason that he chose Dangerous Zombie as his power is because it's not only Level 10 but also Level X, the undetermined variable. Take Off Against the Direction of the Wind!

As Genm, he watches over Brave and Ex-Aid fight the Kaiden Bugster and then proceeds to battle against Snipe Level 50. He leaves in defeat and warns the doctors not to be involved in things that don't concern them. In his office, Kuroto reveals that he needs one more piece of death data from a Bugster to access Level X. Kuroto confronts with Emu and Asuna, after their discussion with Masamune Dan, who had confessed on his son's involvement with the Bugster Virus 16 years ago. Kuroto maniacally laughs, saying that he couldn't be arrested just yet and said he blamed his father for it. When the two find out that Uesugi's Bugster is out again, Kuroto leaps before Emu and the two transform and engage. While Taiga focuses on Parado, and Hiiro on Kaiden, Emu is left to fight Genm alone. Hiiro manges to finish off the Bugster with the Drago Knight Hunter Z Gashat just as Genm is defeated. After, Kuroto manages to absorb the death data, which bewilders the Riders. Kuroto rants on how Kamen Riders and Bugsters are small parts to "the ultimate game". He reveals his future plans on Kamen Rider Chronicle, in which civilians are allowed to transform into Kamen Riders and fight monsters in the real world, and that they must fight for survival or perish. Emu is enraged when hearing this, due to Kuroto's twisted sense of what a game is and how so many people have died, like Kiriya, Saki, and Uesugi's son because of him. Kuroto retorts Emu's efforts to stop him, now that he has acquired both immortality and the power of Level X and transforms, unleashing a massive shockwave. Emu uses his Mighty Brothers XX Gashat and the Gashacon Key Slasher to finish off Genm again, but the latter disappears. Chasing the Mystery!

"Since 16 years ago...you've been so transparent and pure! The brilliance radiated by that crystal...electrified my talents! You're the best guinea pig! Your entire life...has been manipulated by my hands!"
―Kuroto reveals that he had been using Emu all along.[src]

"I'll show you the power of Genm X!"
―Kuroto unlocking the full potential of Level X.[src]

Kuroto was seen in his hidden office and checking that only 3 Bugsters (Doremifa Beat, Shakariki Sports and Drago Knight Hunter Z) left to complete Kamen Rider Chronicle. However, the Ministry of Health had already known about Kuroto's hideout and sends a team of officials to arrest him and put a stop to his plans. However, when the leader of the group attempts to catch him, Kuroto shows signs of Game Disease and transforms into the Charlie Bugster, before rampaging. Charlie is then temporarily stopped by Emu using Mighty Brothers XX along with the Sports Gamer. As Kuroto is about to be dragged away, Emu decides to cure his Game Disease, with Hiiro backing him for safety purposes. Both doctors agreeing that not only would it be dangerous to the Ministry and civilians alike if the Bugster broke out again, but also because Kuroto needed to be alive to pay for his crimes. Kuroto cries and thanks Emu before he's dragged to CR.

Kuroto infected himself

Kuroto infects himself with the virus.

At CR, Kuroto explained about Zero Day and how he was the one who infected Emu 16 years ago. Out of pity, Emu decides to excise Charlie from Kuroto if he is to pay for his previous crimes. Emu then finishes Charlie off using Mighty Brothers XX, but Kuroto absorbs Charlie's debris using the Gashacon Bugvisor. Kuroto then tells Emu that he actually tricked Emu to cure him and that he infected himself with the Bugster Virus not only to escape from the ministry, but also to acquire the Bugster data needed to complete Kamen Rider Chronicle.

Kuroto then transforms into Genm Zombie Gamer Level X and quickly defeats Emu using his refined Critical Dead, corrupting Emu's Gamer Driver in the process. Kuroto boasts about him shattering Emu's 'crystal' by himself and that Emu can no longer transform, before letting him live for his 'cooperation'.

Kuroto then returns to Genm Corp. with a new hairstyle and pulls out the incomplete Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat, proclaiming that he'll complete the game in no time. Engineered History!

Kuroto infected DZ Virus

Kuroto's ultimate price: Being re-infected by the Dangerous Zombie Bugster Virus by Parado.

Kuroto death

Kuroto's death.

"I'm God! My dreams are...IMMORTAL!!!"
―Kuroto's last words before his death.[src]

Kuroto plans to infect every civilian with the Bugster Virus of DoReMiFa Beat and Drago Knight Hunter Z in order to complete Kamen Rider Chronicle. All hope seemed to be lost for Brave and Snipe, until Emu creates the Maximum Mighty X Gashat and transforms into Ex-Aid Maximum Gamer Level 99. With Ex-Aid's new power from his level upgrade, the three Riders finally managed to defeat Genm Level X once and for all. Ex-Aid used Maximum Gamer's reprogramming ability to delete the Bugster Virus antibody sample in Kuroto's DNA, causing him to be unable to transform into his Rider form. Emu attempts to take him to custody instead of killing him, as he followed his moral value of being a doctor first before being a rider.

Parado then appears and seems to help Kuroto, but quickly strikes him down to the ground and steals his Gashacon Bugvisor. He used it to infect Kuroto with the Dangerous Zombie Gashat, which is filled with both lethal amounts of the Bugster Virus and countless data of his own death. Kuroto struggles with immeasurable pain and starts to disintegrate, screaming in pain as Parado taunts him by saying that Kamen Rider Chronicle now belongs to him. After Parado leaves, Kuroto bellowed that he's a god and that his ambitions will go on forever, screaming madly as he disintegrate into thin air. With this, he is the second rider to experience 'Game Over' after Kiriya.To The Max, Dead or Alive!

Team Genm

A data version of the Zombie Gamer Kamen Rider Genm would fight in the Game World's Chou Super Hero Taisen, leading his own team of Kamen Riders and Sentai RangersIcon-crosswiki to compete for the title of Kamen Sentai Gorider. Ultimately, this Genm fell just short of achieving the form of Aka-Rider as he was defeated in the final round by a team led by Emu Hojo, bested by Ex-Aid Robot Action Gamer Level 3.

As Kenzaki Kazuma

Faker Blade

Dropping his Blade disguise

As a backup contingency plan, Kuroto created an unbeatable game that would malfunction and take over the world with constantly reviving Bugsters. In the actual game itself, he took the guise of Kazuma Kenzaki, masquerading as an ally amongst other dead Riders such as Kiriya. This impossible game was designed to feed on the despair of the dead Riders after giving them hope so it could revive him in the real world. However his plan was stopped by the real Kazuma Kenzaki and Emu Hojo, who both entered the Game World. He ultimately dies when all of the Dead Riders sacrifice themselves to allow Emu and Kazuma to exit out of the Game World. Kamen Sentai Gorider

The Hidden Level 0 and Return

Dan holding Origin Gashat

Revived from Proto Mighty Action X Origin, Dan presents his Level 0 Gashat at CR.

"Yes! I did it! I did it! I really am...IMMORTAL!!!"
―Kuroto Dan's quote during his revival.[src]

"You seem to be having lots of fun, Parado! How dare you leave the Game Master out of this!"
―Genm returns with a vengeance.[src]

"It's no use trying to take over Emu Hojo."
―Dan gloating to Parado that the latter is unable to possess Emu.[src]

Poppy was having visions from the memories from her host, where one of them was a young Kuroto told the host that he was developing a way to prevent Bugster infection, so Poppy went to investigate Kuroto's abandoned game studio. Suddenly, a vision of a young Kuroto was passing by, Poppy follows the vision, leading her into a hidden room.

There was a treasure chest in the room, containing a brand new Gamer Driver and the Proto Mighty Action X Origin Gashat. There's also a manual right next to it.

The Forbidden Continue!?

Dan revived, transforming alongside Emu.

Poppy later brings what she found back to CR, telling the others that Level 0 has the ability to nullify a Bugster's powers. Believing that this is the way to save Emu, she activates the Proto Mighty Action X Origin Gashat and enters the game itself via its title screen. In the game, she finds a Bugster Virus grunt, which turns out to contain data on Kuroto himself. Poppy later attaches the Gamer Driver on the grunt and inserts the Gashat, restoring Kuroto completely, albeit as a Bugster. After which, Kuroto declared he was truly immortal while madly laughing gleefully. Kuroto then transforms into Genm Level 0 and heads to the Next Genome Institute operation theater where Parado is about to finish off Emu. Surprising everyone with his presence, Genm proceeds to attack Parado. Parado then attempts to possess Emu, but fails due to Level 0's Bugster-nullifying effect.

Back at CR, as Poppy explains how she brought Kuroto back, Kuroto proceeds to threaten the doctor Riders once more, though he is hindered by Poppy absorbing him into the Bugvisor II as punishment, due to his status as a Bugster. Strongest VS Strongest!

The True Purpose behind the Bugster Outbreak and the Creation of Kamen Rider Chronicle

It is then revealed that Kuroto's true intention of starting the Bugster Outbreak and creating Kamen Rider Chronicle was to apply the game-like structure of the Bugsters, specifically their ability for revival to humans. Like the defeated Bugsters, those that had vanished due to the infection will be stored as 'data' and later be given a chance for a 'Continue.' To realize this, he created Kamen Rider Chronicle, a battle for existence between humans and bugsters, which will serve as a catalyst, if the human side wins, to revive those that had vanished, or more specifically, his mother.

"I was using you guys as test players to collect data. It was all for creating the ultimate game!"
―Dan explains his determination to the Riders.[src]

"Don't you defy the Game Master! Emu Hojo and Tsukuru Koboshi too. How dare they create their own Gashats! Gashats are my invention! Nobody can create them but me! Same goes for you Bugsters. You are just a game piece to further my ambitions! I design game characters from zero...and program their AI, deciding their actions. As the Game Master...I'm God!"
―Dan's proclamation about himself[src]

"You are the sinners! I'm God! My talents must be used! Getting in the way of that is what a sin is!"
―Dan's breaking point of the CR Doctors interfering in his plans[src]

"I no longer go by the name of Kuroto Dan. I'm now...New Kuroto Dan!"
―Dan's proclamation after his revival[src]

To the public eye prior being exposed as the criminal mastermind, Kuroto appears to be a polite and humble man, both with a sense of sympathy and compassion. Despite this, his decisions are of questionable morality.

But behind closed doors, Kuroto is shown to be psychotic, most likely affected by over usage of his Proto Gashats. He slowly becomes deranged over time, indulging himself with a God complex, believing that survival of the fittest is the only thing that matters in battle.

He also regards his skill as being the best, taking pride in the creation of Gashats as something that only he can make. When Emu and Tsukuru creates the Mighty Brother XX and JuJu Burger Gashats respectively, Kuroto lashes out attempting to retrieve it to destroy them, displaying this form of behavior to the most extreme when Emu attempted to use the Maximum Mighty X Gashat in it's incomplete form, even going as far as calling both Mighty Brothers XX and Maximum Mighty X "bootleg games". Despite this, he uses the data he collected from fighting Emu who used this Gashat to complete the Gashat Gear Dual for Parado, and the Gashat Gear Dual β which is currently in the hands of Hiiro Kagami and Taiga Hanaya. This practical psychosis-level of pride of his is made apperent when he was a child as of the present.

His malignant narcissism is also taken to the extreme when he attempts to kill a patient to obtain data on death needed to complete a Gashat he was developing before using data on his own death to complete it. Despite his instability, Kuroto appears to have some form of self-control after constant usage of the Dangerous Zombie Gashat. However, his obssession with immortality through the aforementioned Gashat made him even more unhinged.

Kuroto also views those who are no longer in the scope of his plans to be disposable as he murders Kiriya Kujo and Motors once he saw that they were no longer useful in his plans. This has seemingly led to Parado severing ties with Kuroto as the death of Motors was not from playing the game, but from Kuroto indulging in his god complex as the "Game Master" and thus being used as bait.

Kuroto Gorider

Even after death, Kuroto retains his psychotic personality.

His delusions would become his fatal flaw, as Parado takes advantage of this when he murders Kuroto after his defeat by Emu and claimed Kamen Rider Chronicle for his own purpose. The same fatal flaw is also present in Kamen Sentai Gorider, and not only he rubs it in to the deceased Riders his desire to resurrect himself, but he also inadvertently attracted the attention of the real Kenzaki, not knowing that the presence of a Joker Undead can destroy his game world. Ever since he is properly revived, Kuroto becomes fully aware of his excessive pride of his own talents is proven to be his greatest weakness, as shown when he is creating (and later attempting to use) the Hyper Muteki Gashat.

After his resurrection, Kuroto's insanity is still intact, with a vindictive streak; hellbent in making Parado pay for his treachery. The only person he holds dearly to ensure he never loses his humanity is his mother Sakurako Dan, who was a host of Asuna Karino/Poppy Pipopapo. As a result, Kuroto regains traces of his sanity, despite he continues to boast himself as the "New" Kuroto Dan.

In spite of his apparent viciousness and insanity, as well as others' perceptions of him, Kuroto's actions did have purpose as the purpose of Kamen Rider Chronicle was to bring back every human who succumbed to the Bugster Virus by defeating all of the Bugsters, especially his own mother whom he infected. Through this, Kuroto, while antagonistic, had good intentions, albeit descending into insanity due to the prolonged effects of the Proto Gashats.

After his father, Masamune emerged as Kamen Rider Cronus, Kuroto realizes that his actions was part of his father's ploy to claim the Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat. Kuroto himself is visibly horrified at his father murdering Lovelica, and would also develop a hatred towards his father for taking the products that Kuroto himself created.

Powers and Abilities

As stated by him, Genm's parameters are originally the same as Ex-Aid's, so his overwhelming power didn't come from his equipment, but his own combat experience and ability. Brave Chapter This is shown when he easily defeated some of the Ex-Aid Riders, even veterans like Taiga Hanaya, many times. He's even on par with Kamen Riders Specter and Necrom, even while the former is in his strongest form.

  • Genius-Level Intellect: Kuroto has a formidable mind: He is responsible for the creation of all but four Gashats (Mighty Brothers XX, Ju Ju Burger, Maximum Mighty X and Toki Meki Crisis). He has shown an ability to quickly adjust to new situations and predict the actions of other riders almost perfectly, allowing him to almost completely mastermind both Bugster outbreaks.
  • Bicycle Proficiency: He is extremely skilled in bicycling, which allows him to effectively use his Sports Gamer bicycle as both a weapon and a transport to defeat a large group of Gamma Commandos and Superiors.
  • Close Combat Skills: He has proven himself to be a formidable combatant, as he easily overwhelmed Specter and Necrom at once when the former was in his strongest form.
  • Quick Retreat: Through unknown means, after he recovered his Shakariki Sports Gashat, he faded into thin air. This is also shown when he decided to save the Aranbura and Collabos Bugsters. He is also able to do so in his civilian form, escaping after he just revealed his true identity as Genm.
  • Acquired Game Illness Immunity: As a result of a secret compatibility surgery not unlike the standard one for CR candidates, Kuroto Dan is immune to the Game Illness, and able to transform into a Kamen Rider. This immunity is later negated due to Ex-Aid Level 99's reprogramming ability and when he revived as a Bugster, he installs his human DNA to use said Driver.
  • Death Cheating: When he stabbed the Gashacon Bugvisor into his emptied Rider Gauge, he gained the ability of the Dangerous Zombie Gashat, allowing him to revive from any fatal injuries. This power becomes invalid as Ex-Aid reprograms this ability to be useless with his Rider Gauge returning to normal condition, along with Parado effectively killing Dan by letting him re-infect the Bugster Virus. However, using the Proto Mighty Action X Origin Gashat, Kuroto was able to create a "save data" version of himself, allowing himself to be revived again as a Bugster.
  • Cloning: After gaining the true power of Level X, he is able to produce many data clones of himself, allowing him to be at many places at the same time. According to Kuroto, this power is based on a fictional zombie's ability to self-reproduce through their own cells.
DAN Life Points

Kuroto's remaining life points.

  • Bugster Ability Restriction: One of the functions of Level 0 Gashats. Kuroto can seal certain abilities of Bugsters who are in his game area, such as host possession.
    • Data Mimicry: One of the abilities of a Bugster, he can travel through the cyberspace by transforming into computer data. This is exhibited when he used Poppy's arcade room as his own living space, much to her dismay.
    • Teleportation: Kuroto can teleport himself for simple travel or evade incoming assaults.
    • Respawn: Having revived as a Bugster, Kuroto can respawn himself after a Game Over. Once respawn, he approaches from a self-made pipe with the limitations for his revival are 99 lives.
    • Level Regression: Thanks to Level 0's power being over nothingness, by touching a Bugster, Kuroto can degrade their Levels to reduce their powers.

Weaknesses

  • Gashacon Bugvisors: Being revived as a Bugster recently, Kuroto can be absorbed and preserved in a Gashacon Bugvisor in any time. This has only shown accessible in human form. However, this has also proven to be an advantage of some sort, as Kuroto can enter Bugvisors at will as well, allowing him to bypass Cronus's time stopping Pause ability while inside the Buggle Driver II of Cronus.
  • God Complex: Kuroto suffers from a massive god complex, which is fueled by his technological prowess and has only worsened with time. This narcissism has proven to be Kuroto's undoing on multiple occasions, often clouding his reasoning and slowing his ability to adjust to unforseen situations.

Levels

All of Genm's stats are raised, placing him above any Riders at Level 2. It was the first instance of Level 3 to be used by a Rider. Genm usually prefer to use this form as it more powerful in combat. However, Upon Ex-Aid gaining the Shakariki Sports Gashat, this form is lost.

In this form, Genm's stats are slightly below the stats for Ex-Aid Level X, placing him at a form slightly weaker than Zombie Gamer.

Level 0's special ability is the neutralization of Bugster abilities. In addition to this form being able to nullify certain Bugster abilities such as host possession, Genm can also downgrade the level of a Bugster by touching them.

Due to the power of Level 0's nullifying ability, it negates the Dangerous Zombie Gashat's side effects on the Gamer Driver.

In this form, despite having a similar appearance to the Buggle Driver version of Zombie Gamer and only a simple Driver change, its stats are actually much higher, beating the former even in its Level X stats.

However, this form has a normal functioning Rider Gauge, unlike the original Level X form, meaning it does not grant Kuroto the power of immortality, presumably due to the reprogramming powers of Maximum Mighty X effected the immortality abilities of Dangerous Zombie.

  • Dragon Blade: Transformed from the Dragonknight-Blade, it's an electromagnetic blade equipped on his right arm.
  • Dragon Gun: Transformed from the Dragonknight-Gun, it's a railgun equipped on his left arm that shoots compressed metal at ultra-high speeds.

Other than that, his armor is reinforced with:

  • Shoulder Drago Armor: It protects Genm's shoulders and enhances the power of the Dragon Blade and the Dragon Gun with an electromagnetic strengthening device.
  • Mec Drago Guard: It rewrites the Gain Riser program to dramatically increase his attack and defense powers, in addition to rebuilding other damaged parts and increasing their durability.
  • Leg Drago Armor: Transformed from the Dragonknight-Claw, it protects Genm's legs and also incorporates an air injection device that reduces the sensory weight and increases the exercise speed.

Zombie Gamer Level X

"Buggle Up! Danger! Danger! (Genocide!) Death the Crisis! Dangerous Zombie! (Zombie Screech)"
―Transformation Announcement[src]
  • Height: 205.0cm
  • Weight: 115.5kg

Ability Perimeters (Level 10 → Level X):

  • Punching power: 24.1t → 66.6t
  • Kicking power: 30.2t → 73.0t
  • Maximum jump height: 52.0m → 63.2m (one leap)
  • Maximum running speed: 100m per 2.5s → 1.8s

Zombie Gamer Level X (ゾンビゲーマーレベルX Zonbi Gēmā Reberu Ten/Ekusu) is Genm's upgraded form, activated by inserting the Dangerous Zombie Gashat into the Buggle Driver and pressing the small red button next to the Gashat slot.

This form's original stats are superior to any forms provided by the first 10 Gashats, including Hunter Action Gamer Level 5's, and only loses to Ex-Aid's Robot Action Gamer Level 3 in terms of punching power. After collecting enough data on death by reviving 10 times, it becomes more powerful than even Level 50.

In this form, Genm's armor and helmet is reinforced with:[1]

  • Broken Goggles (ブロークンゴーグル Burōkun Gōguru): Genm's goggles that emit a special light to make an enemy's visual sensors malfunction and also induce hallucinations.
  • Deadly Jammer (デッドリージャマー Deddorī Jamā): A special device installed on Genm's helmet's white hair-like part. It stops the protection function incorporated in the enemy's Gamer Driver, which would automatically cancel a transformation to protect the damaged Rider. Genm can also control if the Deadly Jammer remains active or not if he wants to keep his enemies alive.
  • Face Guard Shackle (フェイスガードシャックル Feisu Gādo Shakkuru): It doesn't only regulate Genm's internal heat, but can also inject a high temperature steam to overheat his enemies.
  • Life Jail Armor (ライフジェイルアーマー Raifu Jeiru Aāmā): A white protector installed on Genm's right chest, which maintains the state when Genm's Rider Gauge's at 0.
  • Rider Gauge (ライダーゲージ Raidā Gēji): Genm's Rider Gauge is shown cracked and always at 0, which never changes even when taking battle damage.
  • Revenant Dischargers (レブナントディスチャージャー Rebunanto Disuchājā): Circular control devices attached to Genm's right shoulder and joint parts. It helps control Genm's output and can strengthen his physical ability beyond its limit.
  • Dangerous Breaker (デンジャラスブレイカー Denjarasu Bureikā): Genm's shoulder armor. It has spikes for protection, and can be used offensively to pierce the enemy's vital point with a charged spike and put them in a paralyzed state.

An extremely powerful form, this form's primary ability is immortality. Zombie Gamer can immediately recover from all but the greatest of attacks. Only Kamen Rider Para-DX Level 50 has managed to knock him out of his transformation. As a result of the "zombie" theme that dictates this form, Genm frequently exhibits bizarre, lumbering, and awkward mannerisms.

Though the Gashacon Bugvisor can be removed from the Bugster Buckle to absorb the debris of destroyed Bugsters, Genm does not seem to be able to use the Bugvisor as a weapon in this form. As such, he uses other Gashats in his possession to summon weapons, most prominently the Gashacon Sparrow from Giri Giri Chambara, but he has also been able to access the Gashacon Sword and Gashacon Magnum.

As described by Kuroto himself, "X" in this case refers not only 10, but also the unknown. Hence, by taking hits to purposely die and revive, Genm can continuously use the data of death to increase the power of Level X, allowing Genm's stats to skyrocket beyond the usual stats of "Level 10" and gain new abilities, such as creating data duplicates of himself and destroying the equipment of other Kamen Riders. Dan refers himself as Genm X while in this state.

Due to Ex-Aid Level 99's reprogramming ability, Genm eventually loses the immortality state of Level X, causing his Rider Gauge to refill and allowing it to be depleted normally just like any other ordinary Rider Gauge.

This form has seven finishers:

  • Buggle Driver finishers:
    • Critical End (クリティカルエンド Kuritikaru Endo): This finisher has two variations.
      • Genm flies into the air, spins backwards rapidly to become an effective saw, and flies into the target. Genm uses this version in episode 12 to defeat and kill Lazer.
      • Genm directly performs a flying side kick. He uses this version in episode 18 to kill Motors Bugster Level 5.
    • Critical Dead (クリティカルデッド Kuritikaru Deddo): Genm creates a horde of shadow zombies that close in on the enemy, beginning to flash red. After they get close enough, they turn fully red and explode into bursts of dark energy, causing a massive explosion.
      • A variation to this finisher is instead of creating a horde of shadow zombies, he creates a horde of himself as data clones that close in on the enemy, beginning to flash red. After they get close to the enemy enough, they enter the enemy's body, causing not only the enemy Rider to forcefully deactivate the transformation, but also destroying the enemy Rider's Gamer Driver, making it useless in the process.
  • Gashacon Sparrow finisher:
    • Giri Giri Critical Finish (ギリギリクリティカルフィニッシュ Giri Giri Kuritikaru Finisshu, Slash Slash Critical Finish)
      • Arrow: Genm shoots several arrows at enemies, before creating a massive amount of energy arrows that under his command (In this case, a kick), can impales the enemy in high speed.
      • Sickle: Genm delivers a powerful energy double slash to the enemy.
    • Bang Bang Critical Finish (バンバンクリティカルフィニッシュ Ban Ban Kuritikaru Finisshu)
      • Arrow: Genm delivers a powerful energy blast to the enemy.
      • Sickle:
    • DoReMiFa Critical Finish (ドレミファクリティカルフィニッシュ Doremifa Kuritikaru Finisshu)
      • Arrow: Genm delivers energy blasts shaped like treble clefs to attack the enemy.
      • Sickle:
    • Jet Critical Finish (ジェットクリティカルフィニッシュ Jetto Kuritikaru Finisshu)
      • Arrow: Genm delivers an energy blast shaped like a jet plane to attack the enemy.
      • Rider Slash:
  • Gashacon Sword and Gashacon Sparrow finisher:
    • Taddle Drago Knight Crtical Finish (タドルドラゴナイトクリティカルフィニッシュ Tadoru Dorago Naito Kuritikaru Finisshu)

This form's ending theme in entitled Wish in the dark.

Appearances: Ex-Aid Episode 12-14, Snipe: Episode ZERO Episode 1, Ex-Aid 15-23, Chou Super Hero Taisen, Kamen Sentai Gorider Episode 3

Totema Genm

This form is an upgrade form of Zombie Gamer Level X, and it is obtained by fusing with Totema's powers along with the despair of dead Kamen Riders. It acts as an embodiment of the despair that Genm gathered from dead Kamen Riders trapped in his "impossible" game.

Although this form's stats are currently unknown, it is shown to be very powerful, as he was able to single-handedly fight Ex-Aid Level 99, Lazer Level 3 and Another Agito at once.

Attacks:

  • Wings Beam: He can fire a purple beam from his wings, which is strong enough to even be on par and overpower a Rider Kick from Ex-Aid Level 99.

Relationship

  • CR:
    • Emu Hojo: Emu respects him and see him as a good man. Although Dan helps him in his civilian form, Dan acts hostile/even murderous to him as Genm. However, Emu is oblivious of this fact until Dan reveals himself to the Riders once his battle data gathering has been completed. Turns out, Kuroto had met Emu 16 years ago around the same time when Emu had an unknown illness and placed in a special surgery held by Kyotaro Hinata when Emu was a kid, then the experiment on Emu by Michihiko Zaizen under request of Kuroto himself in 2010. Dan's relation with him only grew worse after seeing the Mighty Brothers XX Gashat, a game he didn't create, so he personally wants to kill Emu and wipe the data of the game out completely. Kuroto compares Emu and his idealistic, kind nature as a doctor with a crystal; once it's shattered, he won't be the same doctor again. He has said to Emu that he will soon destroy his crystal. Emu often calls Dan Genm when he transforms into Genm or not. Emu tries to save Dan after defeating him as a means of taking responsibility for his crimes, only to fail when Parado murders him in front of Emu. When Kuroto is later revived, though Emu does not forgive him, he gives Kuroto the chance to make up for his sins.
    • Asuna Karino/Poppy Pipopapo: Asuna affectionately calls Dan as 社長 ( Shachō) and greatly respects him. Dan in return also trusts Poppy for information regarding Gashats and the CR in his civilian form. Apparently, Poppy soon learns she was just a pawn to Dan when he reveals himself to the Riders that he is Genm, after he gathered enough battle data for his next plan. Later, after Kuroto's revival as a Bugster, he appears to be at Poppy's beck and call instead much to his dismay, due to Poppy being able to control him at will using the Gashacon Bugvisor II. Though he was originally bent on seeking revenge on Parado and acting on his own, Poppy's gratitude towards Kuroto for her creation (Affirming that he is her father), as well as she reminding him of his own mother, somewhat convinced Kuroto to side with the Riders for the time being.
    • Hiiro Kagami: They didn't interact much, but Hiiro shows some respect to him, although is somehow dubious of Dan's behavior until Dan reveals himself to the Riders of being Genm all along once his battle data gathering has been completed.
    • Kiriya Kujo: Kiriya saw Dan as his nemesis after he saw Dan's transformation into Genm. Dan however outsmarts him with Parado's help. Kiriya's hatred grows even further after that incident, even blackmailing him just to vent his anger. Strangely enough however, he claims that he's committing all these actions to find out the truth of how the Bugsters came to the real world, not unlike Kiriya's search for the truth behind the Bugsters. Unfortunately, Kiriya was too late to notice and stop Dan's next move, after Dan finally reveals himself to the Riders once his battle data gathering has been completed. As Kiriya is a greater threat to Dan for his meddling, he then murdered Kiriya as Genm Zombie Gamer Level X and stole his Gashacon Sparrow for his own personal use. However, Ex-Aid Level 99 managed to render Genm powerless from being a Rider anymore and retrieved the Giri Giri Chambara Gashat back.
    • Taiga Hanaya: Taiga mocks him because of Dan's laid-back behavior in civilian form. Although, Dan paid him no heed, even when Taiga bought his Gamer Driver back. Dan states that his Rider skills are undeniable despite how dangerous he is. Once Dan reveals himself to the Riders after he gathered enough battle data from Snipe and other Riders' battle, Taiga finally found out that he's being used by Dan.
  • Ministry of Health:
    • Kyotaro Hinata: Dan helped Kyotaro in the Gamer Driver and Gashat development. As such, they seem to be on good terms, until Kuroto reveal his true colors to the four doctor Kamen Riders once he completed his first evil plan.
  • Bugsters:
    • Graphite: Dan seems to see Graphite as a tool for his goals, Graphite in return didn't like Dan either.
    • Parado: Dan is often helped by Parado regardless of his mission as Genm. Parado also noted that Dan's necessary for his plan. However, his relationship with Parado appears to grow more bitter when Parado destroyed the Revol Bugster against Dan's deterrence.The Paradox of Defeating M It gets worse even further when Dan himself does the same deed to the Burgermon Bugster right in front of Parado, though he completely destroys him instead of leaving any remains to absorb into the Bugvisor like Parado did. Thus, driving a wedge on their partnership. Ultimately, this becomes the reason Parado is fed up with his delusions when he kills Dan with no signs of remorse. When Kuroto is revived, he swears revenge on Parado.
  • Masamune Dan: His father and the first CEO of Genm Corp before Kuroto. During his childhood life 16 years ago, their relationship was well. In 2010/2011, he become corrupted and betrayed his father by framing him that he started the Zero Day, although it was revealed that his father used him as a "pawn" upon his true nature of completing the Kamen Rider Chronicle.
  • Sakurako Dan: Kuroto was a loving son towards his mother while she was still alive. Even after her death, Kuroto seemed to never forget the memory of his mother.

As Kamen Rider Genm, his suit actor is Satoshi Fujita (藤田 慧 Fujita Satoshi) in Level 1 and Yuya Nawata (縄田 雄哉 Nawata Yūya) in Level 2 to Level X. Nawata quit due to unknown reasons and was substituted out for Yuji Nakata (中田 裕士 Nakata Yuji) in Episode 23, and resumes his role as Genm Level X-0. Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔 Asai Kōsuke) was the suit actor for Genm Level 0. Genm's bike action suit stunt actor is Keigō Arizono (有薗 啓剛 Arizono Keigō).

Etymology

Kuroto's first name is a play on the Japanese words for black ( Kuro) and proto (プロト Puroto). This is a reference to Genm being a dominantly black-colored Rider that is also a prototype of the main Rider, Ex-Aid.

Notes

  • Kamen Rider Ex-Aid is a game & doctor themed series; although Kuroto is a CEO of a game company, his actor is a licensed pharmacist in real life.
    • As Gamer Driver users (save for Parado) are known to have associated with the medical field, Kuroto's position may be an allusion to executives who have higher authorities in the hospital. As Genm (who infects patients than curing them), he is based on terrorists that weaponize pathogen for biological warfare.
  • His Action Gamer Level 1 and Action Gamer Level 2 suits are recolors of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's Action Gamer Level 1 and Action Gamer Level 2 suits.
    • As this is a gaming themed Rider series, the recolor is a reference to palette swap characters often seen in Fighting games, which is one of the motifs of Ex-Aid.
  • He follows both the dark Kamen Rider trope and the evil counterpart trope, which are common respectively in the Kamen Rider Series and in video games.
  • Genm is the first Kamen Rider that is not the protagonist to debut in the previous series.
  • He is the first Rider to have a bicycle as his main Rider Machine, unlike previous one-time bicycle users, Beast and Double.
    • His Sports Action Gamer Level 3 is similar to Specter Houdini Damashii as well as Drive Type Tridoron, as all of these forms are made from the combination of the Kamen Rider and his Rider Machine.
    • His Rider Machine and Level 3 form are colored neon pink and green, which are strangely enough the same as Ex-Aid's base colors. Ironically, Ex-Aid acquired Shakariki Sports Gashat after Genm defeat,and use the said gashat on the next episode.
SportsActionGamerFaceblinkers
  • Original scans showed Genm's Sports Action Gamer Level 3 wearing blinkers.
    • Coincidentally, the visor shares a visual similarity to the one worn by Kamen Rider Cronus.
  • Despite being a prototype, he is able to beat Ex-Aid. This makes him similar to AbareKillerIcon-crosswiki from Bakuryuu Sentai AbarangerIcon-crosswiki whose prototype status is revealed some episodes after his introduction.
    • Since the prototype Gashats caused users to behave increasingly erratic from using them, the prototype and the stabilized Gashats may share a similar nature to Gaia Memories used by the Dopants and W Riders respectively.
  • Dangerous Zombie is a survival horror game which features Zombies, this pays homage to other games such as Resident Evil and Dead Rising, where the zombies are people who are infected with a virus. Therefore, it's likely zombies in Dangerous Zombie are infected people too.
    • If proven true, Zombie Gamer is likely to reflect on Genm's status of "revived by being infected by the Bugster Virus and turned into a zombie".
    • Zombie Gamer's red and blue colored eyes could be a reference to the use of 3D in horror movies in the 80s, such as Friday the 13th Part III and Amityvile 3-D.
    • A further trope from such games lies in the weapons: Dangerous Zombie has no assigned weapon, and Kuroto uses weapons from the Gashats in his possession (Giri Giri Chambara, Taddle Quest, Bang Bang Shooting), which change as the series progresses. This is similar to survival horror games like Left 4 Dead 2 where weapons can be picked up and swapped at will.
  • Genm using the Buggle Driver to access his upgrade form (Zombie Gamer Level X) is very similar to Takatora Kureshima and Kaito Kumon when they both transform into Zangetsu Shin Melon Energy Arms and Baron Lemon Energy Arms respectively by using Genesis Driver and Takeru Tenkuji when he transforms into Ghost Grateful Damashii by using Eyecon Driver G.
    • Unlike the other Riders, however, the transformation device has no relation to its predecessor like the Sengoku and Genesis Drivers, nor is it related to the system from which the Eyecon Driver G is derived.
      • The transformation to Zombie Gamer also stands out in appearance as there's no transition like Level 1 (lacking a rear-facing face), and the armor and undersuit design has a marked difference from the Riders in Level 2.
    • The way the Gashat is slotted into the Buggle Driver and the mixture of black and white colors is similar to Kamen Rider Double's FangJoker form.
    • Genm's Zombie Gamer Level X is quite similar to Mashin Chaser's design, as well as spikes like Kamen Rider Double FangJoker.
    • Genm Zombie Gamer also has bi-chromatic eyes, probably a homage of Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level XX which debuted later.
  • It can be noticed that Genm Zombie Gamer's bi-chromatic eyes are due to a red-colored visor which has a piece broken off where the left eye is.
  • Dan is similar to Takatora Kureshima, in which both of them are top executives of their respective corporations who became Riders and are one of the strongest fighters among the Kamen Riders of their respective series. However, his personality has more similarities to Tenjuro Banno and Mitsuzane Kureshima (in the Over Lord and Forbidden Fruit sagas), in which he would ally with nonhuman enemies, deceive the protagonist, and try to eliminate Riders who he deems to be threats to his goals.
    • But his role is more like Kamen Rider Kabuki's role as an apparent ally to the heroic Kamen Riders who is secretly the antagonist, though only Kuroto's untransformed form is paraded as an ally while both Kabuki's human and Oni forms were falsely presented as good.
    • Dan referring to himself as "Neo Kuroto Dan" is similar to Sawatari Shingo's nickname "Neo New Sawatari" from Yugioh Arc-V.
    • In addition, he is rather similar to Kyoji Murakami from Kamen Rider 555. As CEOs of their respective companies who have connections with their series' villains.
      • However, most of his traits as a CEO who is revealed to be a mastermind behind the starting events to achieve his superiority is much more like BOARD's chairman Hiroshi Tennoji than Murakami, as both are ultimately defeated by the heroes and killed by their former pawns in front of the heroes.
  • Like Ryoma Sengoku with his development of the Lockseeds, Kuroto doesn't like it when someone manages to create a new game that he doesn't know by using his Gashats. Though Kuroto is more extreme than Ryoma, since being the 'Game Master' himself, he swore to delete the data of any games he didn't create, while Ryoma just feels either surprised or jealous when someone managed to become more powerful without his own creations.
    • Also, the comparisons between Kuroto and Ryoma Sengoku are simply too obvious to ignore aside from being creators of their respective Rider Systems. Both take pride in all of their inventions, and seems to show their anger when one of the main Riders gained a power that they did not create - Double Action Gamer Level X(X) and Kachidoki Arms, respectively.
  • Dan's manipulative nature in viewing the Bugsters and Kamen Riders as expendable pawns in his master plan is similar to Tenjuro Banno from Kamen Rider Drive, while his proclamation of godhood claiming that he needs no honor makes him similar to Rugal Bernstein from The King of Fighters series, right down to being a sore loser upon being defeated.
  • Dan being the creator of the Gashats and being in the "game" could be a nod to some games with Game Master Player Characters, where they are the ones who made the powers of the heroes possible, but can also give themselves powers that the other people playing the game can't have (such as the Dangerous Zombie Gashat)
  • Dan saying that Level X means an unknown number could be a reference to Mega Man X, as the X in his name was explicitly stated to be an unknown variable representing his potential.
    • Another reference from Mega Man series that Genm can be implied to be similar to some of the protagonists' evil doppelgängers in forms & traits, as well as similar villainous role such as Copy X, and Omega and Zero Nightmare, as Ex-Aid's traits & heroic roles are based on X and Zero.
    • Another reference could be to mathematics, and how in algebra X is an unknown variable.
  • Genm's Zombie Gamer "Level X" punching power of 66.6 tons and Zombie Action Gamer Level X-0 jump height of 66.6 m, are respectively a reference to the number 666, also called the Number of the Beast.
  • As of his death, Genm Zombie Gamer Level X has never demonstrated the ability to fire a hot stream from his Face Guard Shackle as mentioned on TV-Asahi's official website.
  • The method of Kuroto's death is very ironic, as he first used the Dangerous Zombie on his victim to drain his Rider Gauge and stole the Gashacon Sparrow before killing Kiriya. On his last stand, Emu would use Kiriya's Gamer Driver and Maximum Gamer's reprogramming ability to strip him away of his compatibility of being a Rider, only to be killed by Parado when he infects Kuroto with Bugster viruses contained from the aforementioned Gashat.
  • Kuroto shares similarity with Yoshikage Kira from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, in which they are not above killing someone to protect their own identity, went into hiding after their identity was revealed, and have a tendency of gloating to their enemies. In addition, upon gaining Genm X, Kuroto decides to change his hairstyle to have a combed back look that resemble a lot like matured Kira, while Genm X appearance remains the same similar to how Killer Queen does not change in appearance when obtaining Bites the Dust.
  • Kuroto masquerading as Blade is a reference to D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4 where the Great Leader of Shocker took the form of Takumi Inui and transformed into Faiz with the Signal Legend Faiz.
  • Kuroto was seen wearing a coat with the with other codings, including the label "GAME MASTER" written on it upon his revival due to incomplete "render".
  • Kuroto's occasion of being revived as a Bugster is similar to Samus Aran from Metroid series as both will receive a weakness of an antagonistic organism due to these organisms were used on their "revival" treatments.
  • Genm Level 0's ability to negate a Bugster virus's ability to infect their host is similar to the Anti-Bio ParticlesIcon-crosswiki harnessed by the Neo Empire GearIcon-crosswiki and Bio Hunter SilvaIcon-crosswiki from Choudenshi BiomanIcon-crosswiki.
  • Genm's usage of Dangerous Zombie Gashat along with Proto Mighty Action X Origin Gashat presumably voids the usage of Kuroto's 99 lives because of immortality. However, as seen on his battle against Parado, he went to a Game Over and used one of his lives in order to respawn in the place where Parado was supposed to attack at.
  • Kuroto's intentions behind Kamen Rider Chronicle as a means to revive his mother is similar to that of the Rider Fight orchestrated by Shiro Kanzaki of Kamen Rider Ryuki.
  • The way Kuroto stole a Rider's weapon makes him similar to Takeshi Asakura (Kamen Rider Ouja) from Kamen Rider Ryuki as both stole a Rider's arsenal by taking something of theirs for Kuroto he stole a Riders Gashat to access that Riders weapons like when he took Kiriya's Giri Giri Chambara Gashat to have access to the Gashacon Sparrow and for Takeshi he made contracts with fallen Riders Contract Monsters to access that fallen Riders arsenal and powers like when he contracted with Kamen Rider Gai's Contract Monster Metalgelas.
  • His resurrection as a Bugster, and retaining his original personality makes him similar to Gremlin. Likewise, how he insists to anyone to refer him as New Kuroto Dan parallels how Gremlin wants to be referred with his Gate's original name.
