"Welcome to my world."
―Lapis welcoming the visitors of the main universe to his new world.[src]

Lapis (ラピス Rapisu) was Kamen Rider Kamuro (仮面ライダー冠(カムロ) Kamen Raidā Kamuro), who appears in Kamen Rider Gaim: Great Soccer Battle! Golden Fruits Cup!. Lapis shifts Earth into a new world, free of the Inves invasion, while having soccer tournaments due to the boy discovering a soccer ball and learning about what soccer is. His real name was Shamubishe (シャムビシェ), a resident of the former Femushinmu civilization and sealed himself and Kougane, the artificial Golden Fruit that corrupted the Femushinmu and helped cause their extinction.

History

Past

After Rosyuo converted the Femushinmu civilization to adapt to Helheim's living conditions, scientists began to attempt to replicate the Golden Fruit's power. The result was a sentient artificial Golden Fruit known as Kougane. Kougane tempted the Femushinmu and caused them to turn on each other. The Femushinmu Civilization began to crumble as even Rosyuo had to fight among his peers. Shamubishe would later sacrifice himself to seal Kougane, but Kougane had already caused the near-extinction of the Femushinmu.

Golden Fruits Cup!

When Ryoma Sengoku accidentally attempts to unlock the Artificial Golden Fruit, he awakens both Kougane and Lapis. Kougane proceeds to kill Ryoma with Lapis fleeing. Lapis encounters Kouta and through Kouta, learns about the sport called "Soccer" and how it is used to measure one's strength without the need of bloodshed. Impressed, Lapis takes the Soccer ball luring Kouta into a destroyed stadium. In actuality, he had created a new world, replacing the inhabitants' memories (such as Kaito Kumon) and even managed to revive fallen allies and enemies. However exceptions to this are Kouta, possessing the Kiwami Lockseed and is an Over Lord himself, and Mitsuzane Kureshima, who is able to resist the memory alteration to a degree due to the recent trauma of "killing" his brother in battle.

Lapis realizes that his world is starting to resemble his civilization as the Riders start to turn on each other for the Golden Fruit. He later supports Kouta and frees him from Kougane's brainwashing and conjures a horse to help Kouta against Kougane. DJ Sagara gives Lapis a Sengoku Driver and a Silver Ringo Lockseed to become Armored Rider Kamuro, joining Kouta and the other Armored Riders against Kougane. Lapis transform to a ball-like form, stabbed Mars with his Souginjou, later Gaim use a Rider Kick to defeat Kougane.

Farewell Lapis

When the world is returned to normal, Lapis appears before Kouta once again, thanking him for teaching how to play soccer, before vanishing. In the Helheim Forest, his bracelet, the Souginjou, and a soccer ball are seen lying on the ground.

Arms

Like with the other Lockseed-using Kamen Riders, Kamen Rider Kamuro's forms are called Arms (アームズ Āmuzu). His Sengoku Driver does not either play any sort of music or announce something before every transformation, while his personal Lockseeds are styled with a mix of Japanese words and English words.

By pressing the Sengoku Driver's Cutting Blade down on the Lockseed after transforming from one to three times, Kamuro can activate one of three finishing moves based on his current Arms form: Squash (スカッシュ Sukasshu), Au Lait (オーレ Ōre), or Sparking (スパーキング Supākingu).

Ride Wear

The Ride Wear (ライドウェア Raido Uēa) is Kamuro's default form undersuit, which is briefly seen during Kamuro's transformation sequence before the Armor Part attaches or when he changes Arms. However, this form is completely vulnerable to any incoming attacks when shot at directly in the suit rather than at the Arms that is descending down on the Rider.

The Ride Wear that Kamuro's Sengoku Driver has is easily identifiable through its Rider Indicator (ライダーインジケーター Raidā Injikētā) faceplate. The Rider Indicator only identifies what Ride Wear a Sengoku Driver contains for simplicity and can be replaced with extensions such as the Genesis Core or Senyo Joint.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Lapis is portrayed by Taketo Tanaka (田中 偉登 Tanaka Taketo).

As Kamen Rider Kamuro, his suit actor is Satoshi Fujita (藤田 慧 Fujita Satoshi), who was previously the suit actor for Kamen Rider Mage (Orange) in Kamen Rider Wizard. He also served as understudy suit actor for Kamen Rider Marika in the Kamen Rider Gaim television series.

Etymology

  • His name "Lapis" is based on the blue jewelry of the same name.And his original name シャムビシェ (Shamubishe) might be coming from こんぺき (Konpeki), means "Azure" in Japanese.

Notes

  • Kamuro's Ride Wear suit is a recolored Gaim suit with modifications similar to Zangetsu Shin.
  • A nod to the kanji used for Kamuro is that when the kanji taking out of context of the given name (Kamuro), it becomes 冠 ( Kanmuri, lit. crown) as Kamuro's helmet has a crown on his head similar to the one on Toyotomi Hideyoshi's helmet.
  • When Kamuro is in his ball-like form, Lockseed activation and insertion sounds can be heard whenever it is kicked.
  • Kamuro's ball-like form resembles the Silver Arms Armor Part.
  • He is the second apple-themed armored rider, the first being Mars.
  • He and Mars share a few similarities with Hercus and Caucasus.
    • They are silver-gold pairs who share the same motifs (Kamuro and Mars are apple-themed Riders, while Hercus and Caucasus are beetle-themed Riders).
    • Both Kamuro and Hercus are movie-exclusive good silver Riders.
  • The color scheme of Kamen Rider Kamuro's suit is similar to Kamen Rider Nadeshiko.
  • Mars and Kamuro's shoulder pads in Golden and Silver Arms respectively are similar design to Kamen Rider Zangetsu in Melon Arms.
    • His suit and Rider Indicator both resemble Kouta's to a degree, though the suit slightly resembles Takatora's.
  • He is known to be part of the Femushinmu, which makes him an "Over Lord". However, it is unknown if he possesses an Over Lord Inves form.
    • The movie's ending regarding to Lapis may indicate that he simply died before Rosyuo converted the Femushinmu into the Over Lords and Inves to adapt to Helheim's conditions and that he was simply a spirit who used the powers of his bracelet to experience a new way of living compared to his life as a Femushinmu. If so, then Lapis is the first Over Lord to be an ally to the Armored Riders.
  • Lapis' words of the world he made are technically half-true. While there may be no Inves in the world he made, DJ Sagara is still in that world, and due to Sagara technically being Helheim itself, his world is not free from the forest.
  • Along with Kougane, he also shared a small similarity to Orma/Kamen Rider Sorcerer from the previous summer movie:
    • Both were non-human Riders.
    • Both were able to create alternate realities of their own image.
  • Lapis' bracelet, his weapon and head crest as Kamuro resembles Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a preeminent daimyo, warrior, general, former samurai, and politician of the Sengoku period.
    • Similarly, Lapis' desire to bring peace is parallel to Hideyoshi's status as Japan's second "great unifier", with the other being Oda Nobunaga.
