This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Kiva.

Masao Kurenai (紅 正夫 Kurenai Masao) is the second Kamen Rider Kiva (仮面ライダーキバ Kamen Raidā Kiba, Masked Rider Kiva)[1], a Kamen Rider appearing at the end of Kamen Rider Kiva. He is played by Kouhei Takeda, who previously played Otoya Kurenai in the same series.

Character History

He is the son of Wataru Kurenai, resembling Otoya Kurenai. Coming from 2031, 22 years in the future, he comes back in time to ask his father's help to fight the Neo-Fangire (ネオファンガイア Neo Fangaia) menace that are making their way into the present.

Personality

A seemingly free-spirited character with a cheerful personality, Masao acts rather like a carefree teenager compared to his (initially) rather quiet and shy father. His personality somewhat resembles his grandfather Otoya.

Family

  • Wataru Kurenai - Father, Kamen Rider Kiva
  • Taiga Nobori - Uncle, Kamen Rider Saga/Kamen Rider Dark Kiva
  • Otoya Kurenai - Grandfather, Kamen Rider Proto-Ixa (later Kamen Rider Dark Kiva)
  • Maya - Grandmother, Pearlshell Fangire

Forms

Through the orange colored Kivat-bat the 4th and the Kiva Belt, Masao assumes a Kiva Form identical to his father's. It is plausible that he can use the powers of the Wolfen, Merman and Franken like his father as he seems to have the Fuestles for them. In theory, if Masao had a way to assume an Emperor Form, the color of the suit would mainly be orange to match Kivat-bat the 4th.

Equipment

Kivat Belt

His Kivat Belt is a belt that is very much the same as the other incarnations of Kiva. The belt carries the same number of Fuestles as the original Kivat Belt.

Notes

  • Since Masaru is the son of Wataru and the nephew of Taiga, that would technically make him the prince of Fangires.
  • Masao shares some similarities with Kotaro Nogami.
    • They are the new version of the main Rider.
    • They are descendants of the main Rider.
    • Their rider forms are recolors of their fathers' (grandfather in Kotaro's case) primary rider forms (Sword Form and Kiva).
  • His appearance is a deliberate homage to Marty McFly, the main hero of the Back to the Future film franchise.
