―Rai introduces himself and his brother to the Owl Hazard Smash. [src]

"Brother! It's up to you now! EVERYTHING... IS FOR NAMBA INDUSTRIES!"
―Rai's last words to his brother[src]

Rai Washio (鷲尾 雷 Washio Rai) is the younger brother of Fu Washio, hailing from Seito. He is able to transform into the white Kaiser, Engine Bro's (エンジンブロス Enjin Burosu).

Character History

Little is known about Rai’s past, but he and his brother were raised by the Juzaburo Namba institute as his 'Children'. There, Rai and Fu were indoctrinated and trained as soldiers.

Rai, along with Fu was first shown at Hokuto after Kiba defeats Seito Guardians as Owl Hazard Smash. They quickly defeat the latter as Engine and Remocon Bro's easily and taunt Grease to become Seito’s weapon, if he wants Kiba to live.

After they torture Kiba, Kazumi and Akaba arrive, and Kazumi rejects Rai's offer and fights him as Grease. Grease, along with Akaba and Kiba escapes, but later shot by Fu using Nebulasteam Rifle. Fu's about to kill Grease, if Kiba didn't take the bullet for him. Akaba later helps his boss escape once more, to Sky Road where Sento and Banjo awaits.

As the Washio brothers finally caught up to them, Sento and Ryuga fights them as Build Rabbit Tank Hazard (later Rabbit Tank Sparkling) and Cross-Z Charge respectively, until Rogue make his appearance. The Phantom of the West

Joining Seito's forces in an attack on the Touto government office, the Washio brothers covered Rogue as he went in to claim the Pandora Box, engaging Kamen Riders, Cross-Z Charge, Grease and Build before the latter caught up with Rogue. Eventually, the Kaisers succeeded in defeating the Sclashjelly Kamen Riders. A Man Called Rogue

Alongside Rogue, the Washio brothers represented Seito in a three-stage Proxy Battle with Touto. Fu faced Grease in the first round and initially overwhelmed the Kamen Rider only to be shockingly defeated when Grease, recalling his deceased comrades, persevered and struck back at Engine Bro's. With Rai defeated, his Gear Engine was used by Fu alongside the Gear Remocon to face Cross-Z Charge as their combined form, Hell Bro's in the second round. The Treacherous Deathmatch During their battle, Fu claimed to Ryuga that, since his brother had failed, Rai had been taken away by Seito with his survival depending on the elder Washio's victory, using the resulting hesitation in Ryuga to knock him out of the contest. Soon after, Rai arrived, having been unharmed, and gloated with his brother. The Counterattack Hero

Death

During a heist against Evol Black Hole, both Fu and Rai are injected with Nebula Gas by Utsumi to further strenghen them, with a cost of death should they defeated. However, even with the injection and temporary alliance with Touto Kamen Riders, Evol is still too strong for them to handle. Evol then generate a Miniature Black Hole at Engine Bro's. The Black Hole not only cancels Rai's transformation but also starts to disintegrate him. Before he dies, Rai give his Gear Engine to his brother and swears his absolute allegiance for Namba Heavy Industries.Mad World

Personality

Compared to his brother, Rai is more outspoken and seems to be prideful with his abilities. He has a tendency to mock his opponent to let his/her guard down. He also doesn't hesitate to use underhanded tricks, like capturing an unconscious Misora and keeping her hostage to force Touto's Kamen Riders to relinquish their Fullbottles. Nevertheless, both Fu and Rai are cruel and ruthless, and like to torture their defeated opponents.
