Super Dead Heat Drive

"I've got it together. My brain cells are in Top Gear!"
―Shinnosuke's main catchphrase when he starts becoming focused[src]

"Let's go for a ride!"
―Shinnosuke's pre-battle catchphrase as Kamen Rider Drive[src]

"I'm done thinking about it!"
―Shinnosuke's catchphrase when he get a conclusion.[src]

Shinnosuke Tomari (泊 進ノ介 Tomari Shinnosuke) is a former elite police officer and detective who lost all his motivation after he accidentally injured his partner during the catastrophic Global Freeze. Recent events, however, have slowly started to put his life back together again after his demotion into the Special Investigation Unit.

After finding his resolve, Shinnosuke alongside Mr. Belt, his partner/manager Kiriko Shijima, and the Shift Cars, he fights against the Roidmudes as the warrior Drive (ドライブ Doraibu). Once he hears of his predecessor's legacy as a Kamen Rider, he embraces the name Kamen Rider Drive (仮面ライダードライブ Kamen Raidā Doraibu). With the defeat of the Roidmudes, his actions led to his promotion back to elite status.

In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Ghost & Drive: Super Movie War Genesis, he marries Kiriko Shijima, and fathers a son with her in the future.

History

Pre-series

Shinnosuke's 24th birthday is stated to be on Christmas Eve 2014; placing his date of birth as 24th December 1990. His father is a police officer and explained to Shinnosuke the hardships of working as a cop. His father Eisuke Tomari was later killed in the line of duty while on a case during Shinnosuke's middle school years, but suspicious circumstances, including a snowflake-shaped scar behind Eisuke's right ear, made Shinnosuke pursue the truth behind his father's death.

Global Freeze

Experiencing technical difficulties

Shinnosuke firing the fateful shot during the Global Freeze.

Six months prior to the series, during the "Global Freeze" incident, Shinnosuke and his partner Hayase were tracking criminals known as Neo-Shade. During that day, the public had received a hostage message from Neo-Shade demanding a large amount of money. With careful deduction, Shinnosuke had found out about the true criminal, the Copycat Pirate. The two are able to find his location and they confront him. The man is revealed to a talk show host, Koya Nishinori. Shinnosuke was about to arrest him before a sudden appearance of Roidmude 005. Nishinori runs, and unbeknownst to Shinnosuke, was captured and horrified by the monster. Shinnosuke finds and arrests Nishimori.

After receiving reports of Neo-Shade stationing themselves in a building while taking hostages, the two rushed to that building. During the evacuation, he ran passed through a policewoman that he would met months later. During Global Freeze, Shinnosuke and Hayase were chasing down a couple of Neo-Shade criminals and was ambushed. Hayase was cornered in between a flammable generator and one of the two criminals. Panicking, Shinnosuke pulled out his gun and tried to aim at the criminal, but due to the Slowdown effect, he accidentally shot the generator, causing it to explode and in the process, causing some pipes to collapse. As he tried to save Hayase from the falling pipes, the Slowdown effect happened once again, causing him to be unable to save his partner from being crushed. Shinnosuke thus lost his motivation as a police officer, and was transferred to a special investigations unit. Episode 0: Countdown to Global Freeze Why Did My Time Stop?

Present Day

Inheriting the Kamen Rider Name

A slack-off police officer, Shinnosuke is sent to investigate a "Heavy Acceleration" case involving Roidmude 029. Shinnosuke realizes he's fighting a monster, so the Drive Driver gives him the ability to transform into Drive. By utilizing his Tire Exchanges, he defeats Roidmude 029. With the sudden return of Roidmude 029, Shinnosuke theorizes that his powers are connected to the Roidmudes. Visiting his injured partner Hayase, Shinnosuke receives encouragement from the latter and realizes the truth of the victims left behind by Roidmude 029. As Drive, he destroyed Roidmude 029 permanently with the latter calling him a "Kamen Rider". In a heated discussion with Kiriko and Shinnosuke in the background, Mr. Belt approves of the naming scheme of Kamen Rider, thus dubbing Drive as "Kamen Rider Drive". Why Did My Time Stop? What is a Kamen Rider?

Shinnosuke as Drive would later face countless Roidmude threats along with the enforcer/bounty hunter, Mashin Chaser. As the Roidmude threats getting stronger, Drive would gain access to new forms, weapons and Shift Cars. He also led to multiple secrets that the Drive Driver knew of, starting from Rinna being the Drive Pit's assistance to Krim Steinbelt's past as well as the creation of Roidmudes. Eventually sometime later, Mashin Chaser would be revealed as Protodrive, Shinnosuke's predecessor that was brainwashed by the Roidmude Executives.

Joining Forces with Mach

Dead Heat = Dead Meat

Debut of Drive Type Dead Heat

In the second year of his employment in the Special Investigation Unit, he was introduced to Go Shijima, Kiriko's younger brother and the new Kamen Rider Mach. While potentially more powerful than Drive, Mach boasted a huge ego (it turned out that Go took the Mach Driver prematurely in a stint of rashness). Although the two Riders butt heads many times, they nevertheless form a respect for the other, as evident from Go nicknaming Shinnosuke "big brother."

Soon after, Shinnosuke gained access to two new forms: Type Dead Heat (where he can share its powers with Mach along with the purpose to combat against Heart's Dead Zone), and Type Formula (which allows him to move at the speed of G-Force where he first used to put a stop on the crazed Mashin Chaser, at the same time seemingly killed him in his second usage of the form).

Humanity's Hero, Senior's Return and Eisuke's Murderer

"Stealing from the police? Pretty bold move, buddy. Now you've been caught red-handed."
―Shinnosuke fighting against the Thief Roidmude.[src]

Shinnosuke is forced to transform into Drive in front of civilians, revealing his identity as Kamen Rider Drive not only to just the rest of the Special Unit, but his former partner as well. When revealing the Drive Pit to Gen and Kyu, Captain Jun appeared himself and revealed he and Krim were colleagues and decided to make Drive's secret identity public. Eventually, this would had made into a massive turmoil in his life one by one, starting with several Roidmudes (especially Roidmude 001) infiltrate the police ranks and contemplated to destroy him (as well as other Riders) from inside. Why Has a New Battle Started? Soon, thanks to Kiriko's pursuit, Chase returned to his duty as Kamen Rider Chaser, despite Go isn't satisfied with his presence, going so far by joining the Roidmudes in Chase's place.

001's involvement not only placed the Special Investigation Unit on the trouble with sending Mitsuhide Nira, but also introduced the Neo Viral Cores that allows Roidmude and humans to combine. Nonetheless during this case, Shinnosuke felt himself closer to uncover the truth behind his father's murder and eventually comes to the suspicion of 001/Makage, the secretary of National Bureau of Defense thanks to Yukari Karasawa and Chase. 001 reveals his evolution form as Freeze, placing Drive at disadvantage due to Type Formula's weakness and Mr. Belt continuous trauma of losing him like Chase from Global Freeze.

FreezeE Death Beam

Freeze Super Evolution kills Drive and Mr. Belt.

Even with Mr. Belt's renewed spirit, Drive's victory against Freeze takes a bad turn when the latter accessed his Super Evolution and kills both Shinnosuke and Mr. Belt in one swoop. Unknown to him, Mr. Belt manages to synchronize with Shinnosuke's mind, thus his body appears to actually in suspended animation instead, allowing the Special Investigation Unit and Go (whom actually worked undercover as Mr. X) to revive Shinnosuke and grants him Type Tridoron, allowing Drive to turn on the tables and finishes Freeze. However like their previous battle, his enjoyment in the aftermath of the battle cuts short again when a dying Freeze reveals himself not as Eisuke's killer.

Eventually, Shinnosuke, Kiriko and Jun discover Nira as the true murderer of Eisuke. Although Nira and Brain manages to get the evidence (Nira's pistol) away, later framing him and the whole Unit in front of the public and nearly puts Yukari's life at death's doors, but an unexpected help and Shinnosuke's quick-thinking skills turn the tides and finally puts his father's murderer to the face of justice.

Promised Number, a Surprise Future, and the Second Global Freeze

Soon, more Roidmude executives from all over Earth return to Japan in the race to achieve the Super Evolution with the additional task to all re-capture and destroy Banno, who is currently in Go's possession. Shinnosuke temporarily allies himself with Banno when the latter aids the police, but Shinnosuke temporarily loses Mr. Belt when he is separated from him with Banno's betrayal. Shinnosuke learns of Heart's past with Go and obtains Mr. Belt back from Roidmude 004, but not before Roidmude 004 implants a chip into Mr. Belt.

Surprise Future

BeltSurpriseFuture

Mr. Belt's final moments before being destroyed.

In the aftermath of obtaining Mr. Belt back, Shinnosuke receives a letter from Krim, telling him not to open the letter until August 8th, 2015. the two fight against a Giant Roidmude. At the same time, his son Eiji Tomari attempts to tell him not to attack the Roidmude. However, Krim goes haywire as something from his Driver is trying to control him, causing Shinnosuke to destroy the Roidmude and also severely damage the surrounding area. The two are split from each other by a Rider from the future, called "Dark Drive". Shinnosuke is unable to keep up with him due to Krim's malfunctioning and he is saved by Eiji.

Due to never reporting back in, he becomes a suspect due to the Metro Police HQ's reputation at stake for his actions. The situation worsens and the police are after him, chasing him in his latest hiding location. Shinnosuke learns of Eiji's origins and how he can modify the Drive Driver. Shinnosuke doesn't believe Eiji, but is forced to when the police finds him once more. Finally allowing Eiji to modify the Drive Driver, Eiji is killed by Dark Drive before he can complete his modifications.

Shinnosuke, Go, and Chase appear at the scene, fighting against the codeless Roidmude and Dark Drive, defeating them both, but at the cost of Krim once again going haywire, asking Shinnosuke to destroy him. Chase attempts to stop Shinnosuke from doing an action he will regret as he knows there is a conspiracy behind these events, but is unable to stop him.

Eiji reappears in front of Shinnosuke, stepping on his milk candy's box, revealing that he is actually Dark Drive and that through his tablet, his Drive Driver can fight without a user to a degree. Dark Drive attempts to kill Shinnosuke, but he is saved by Chase, who lends him his Mach Driver Honoh and Signal Chaser.

Shinnosuke reads the letter from Krim, entering the first Drive Pit a day earlier, causing a recording of Krim, who anticipated the event that Shinnosuke will not come on the correct day. Here, Shinnosuke is reunited with Kiriko, but as the first Drive Pit starts to be attacked, Shinnosuke drives the Prototridoron against Dark Drive. The Prototridoron is destroyed as Dark Drive leaves to the damaged power plants from before, leaving codeless Roidmude to attack Shinnosuke. Unable to use the Signal Chaser due to unknown reasons, he uses the Tridoron Key, assuming Super Dead Heat Drive.

He manages to destroy one of the Roidmudes and is later assisted by the police and later by Kamen Rider Ghost, who destroys the last numberless Roidmude. Shinnosuke attempts to fight against Dark Drive once more to prevent the Eternal Global Freeze, but fails and has the Mach Driver destroyed during combat. Go also appears to assist Shinnosuke, but is defeated as well after Eiji/Roidmude 108 merges with his past self to become the Paradox Roidmude. Learning from the hints that Eiji dropped and from Krim himself, Shinnosuke sacrifices the Tridoron Key to copy its contents onto the discarded future Drive Driver, reviving Krim.

TypeSpecialvsParadox

Type Special vs Paradox.

Becoming Drive once more, Shinnosuke fights against Paradox, but is frozen along with the rest of Earth in Paradox's Eternal Global Freeze. However, due to Kiriko's intervention, Shinnosuke is given the Shift Next Special Car, transforming into Type Special, a mix of the present Drive and the future Drive. Shinnosuke destroys the Paradox Roidmude in the resulting fight.

In the aftermath, Shinnosuke recalls from "Eiji" (Roidmude 108) that his mother rarely smiled, realizing that his mother was actually Kiriko. Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future

Stopping Banno

Afterwards, Shinnosuke learns of Medic's past as she obtains her Super Evolution at the cost of losing herself due to modifications made by Banno. He also attempts to prevent Brain from being captured by Banno to prevent a true, permanent second Global Freeze from taking place, but fails. Shinnosuke and Mr. Belt also learn of Roidmude 004's other identity, "Krim Steinbelt". Banno decides to instead siphons the powers of all the Super Evolved Roidmudes into his creation, the Sigma Circular, using the excess energy to redirect towards Medic. However, Brain foresaw this and swaps places with her, dying.

Confronting Banno, now Gold Drive at the SSDC, Go and Chase left behind to fight him while Drive, Heart and Medic proceed to stop Sigma. After they destroyed several Reaper Legion members, Drive and Heart enter the room of Sigma, get heavy wound by the machine. Eventually, thanks to Medic's sacrifice, Heart and Drive manages to destroy Sigma, ending the second Global Freeze. Shinnosuke nearly loses his life when he fell from the SSDC tower due to the fatigue from battling Sigma, ended up briefly meeting his successor, Kamen Rider Ghost in his dream before regaining consciousness after being saved by Heart. Heart battles Shinnosuke for the last time and still refuse to counteract, knowing that he and his race were just burdened by Banno's insanity. Heart wishes for Shinnosuke to remember his race before peacefully dies, having gained a human friend.

Post Second Global Freeze and Neo Shade's-disbandment

Shinnosuke give back SB

Shinnosuke returning the Shift Brace to Krim.

While the Units were celebrating their victory, Shinnosuke realizes that Mr. Belt is missing, and solves the problem by visiting the wrecked Drive Pit, where he prepares to lock himself and all Core Driviar equipments beneath Tridoron's parking space. After several parting words, Mr. Belt prepares the lockdown and all of the Unit members saluted for him.

Several days had passed and Shinnosuke and Kiriko drove their way to the Kuruma Driver's License Center until they were stopped by a police officer, whom inspected their car due to its similarity to the one recently stolen. Said officer, Koichi Kano was recognized by them for being Chase's human template before he confirms their innocence and leaves.

Sometime later, Neo-Shade made their move again after their last activity from one month ago when they were allying with Roidmudes. The Special Investigation Unit were mobilized for the last time to track the culprit, Keisuke Okamura, whom stole the Eyecon, the very evidence from the past case. Shinnosuke and Genpachiro catch him but loses when a Gamma attacks until Kamen Rider Ghost, whom he met once during one of his near death experience/dream, saves him again. Shinnosuke soon unmasks Keisuke as Neo-Shade's leader, wanting to reform the group by leading monsters and finally arrest him, saving Kiriko before returning the Eyecon back to Yurusen, Ghost's specter.

After Keisuke's capture, he receives promotion to the First Division from Honganji, eventually marrying Kiriko after she follows the promotion along and had a son named Eiji. He also manages to follow in his father's footsteps as a well-known detective.

Mach

Shinnosuke in Mach Saga

With the return of 005, Shinnosuke is a leading investigator on this case and finds out that Go is connected to the prime suspect. Go believes that a former criminal can change into a good person. Days after 005's defeat, Shinnosuke watches as Go walks off with Reiko hand-in-hand. He tells himself that Go was right and that bad people can change.

Personality

Shinnosuke was once an elite officer within the force with his partner Hayase, known for his great detective skills. He inherited his sense of justice from his father, who said police officers have the heaviest burden of all: protecting the people. Ironically, during this time, he had a problem of being too passionate with his work, often getting dangerously close to pummeling criminals to a pulp unnecessarily.

However, after accidentally injuring his partner, he turned into the very opposite of his former self due to immense guilt. He became constantly lacking of motivation and lazy, contributing to his demotion to the special investigations unit. He is seen constantly running off to laze around, and more often seen eating milk balls than actually working, with milk ball eating being a sign that Shinnosuke's brain is "stuck". Even after becoming Kamen Rider Drive, he has yet to fully return permanently to what he refers to as "top gear", remaining aloof and takes situations and other matters lightly often, although this is seen to be improving and he takes his role as a Kamen Rider more seriously.

Under his aloof attitude and lazy facade is a man who holds a strong bearing of justice. Shinnosuke refuses to see people around him be hurt and would be more aggressive in his dealings when such time comes, eventually shifting into "high gear" mode when clues to cases connect and/or when he is about to confront a criminal or a Roidmude. His appearance while under this attitude is often shown with him straightening his tie. However, this attitude adjustment is temporary and he will revert to his normal lazy self when cases are solved. If he feels particularly demotivated, his tie will mysteriously loosen itself for him.

Shinnosuke can also be a bit self-centered, hating his own date of birth, December the 24th, due to having received only one gift that represents both his birthday and Christmas presents What is in the Belt's Past?, and dislikes riding shotgun on any automobile-themed vehicle, due to his affinity for driving. How Was That Decisive Moment Captured?

He would often say "I'm done thinking about it!" (考えるのはもうやめた! Kangaeru no wa mō yameta!) whenever he has come to a conclusion. Whether these conclusions are helpful (throwing away his hesitation to help people) or not (forgetting his problems to continue lazing around) is a matter of luck.

Revolving around his father's death 12 years before the Global Freeze, Shinnosuke acts very recklessly and in a hot-headed manner as he pursues any possible clues that might lead him to whomever killed his father, to the point of nearly killing Heart.

As Drive, Shinnosuke has the archetype of a proud, snarky superhero, creating puns or bantering his opponent when he has the opportunity, apparently toying with his opponents. While he initially sees Chase as no more than an annoyance, he grew to respect the Roidmude due to Chase's unique sense of honor and comradeship. When he learns that Chase was Protodrive, he is more than willing to give the Roidmude the benefit of the doubt, and often seen trying his best to redeem Chase. As such, the decision eventually to having to finish Chase off due to the Roidmude being on the brink of having actually harming innocent humans, causes him great regret. As time passes, he begins to understand the Roidmude race more, and after being exposed with their past by Heart, he rarely sees them as enemies, yet realised that their villainy was due to being burdened by Banno's evil chip. In his battle against Heart, the last of the Roidmude's race, Shinnosuke pleads him to coexist with the humans and willingly endures the injury delivered by the former until he finally accepted Shinnosuke's friendship in his final moments.

Shinnosuke holds deep respect for other members of the force, as shown when he met Ryu Terui/Kamen Rider Accel, upon discovering he was a Rider, Shinnosuke refered to him as 'sempai' and even saluted to him.

Similar to Faiz, he would often grab his right wrist with his left hand, then close his right hand and flick it open as a hand gesture. When particularly spirited to fight a Roidmude, he will lean on one leg and say "Let's go for a ride!" (ひとっ走り付き合えよ! Hitoppashiri tsukiae yo!)

Drive alongside AkaNinger

Shinnosuke was alerted by the sudden appearance of a Heavy Acceleration. As he goes to said location in Tridoron as Drive, he witnessed the NinningersIcon-crosswiki and mistook them for the cause of the Heavy Acceleration, having arrived late while the true creator, Youkai BuruburuIcon-crosswiki had already fled. After fighting the Ninningers, AkaNingerIcon-crosswiki tried to reason with Drive, only to be handcuffed as the others vanished. While AkaNinger was interrogated, he temporarily vanished before returning as his civilian form, Takaharu and tried his best to convince Shinnosuke the truth by bringing him into the battle of his teammates against the Youkai. When AkaNinger slashes him, Shinnosuke and Mr. Belt witness a Spider Viral Core, wondering what just happened until KyuemonIcon-crosswiki, a silver-haired man and two other Roidmudes appear as they fights Drive alongside his comrades. After the Ninningers destroy Buruburu, Roidmudes 057 and 016 grew into giant proportions, capturing Drive as their hostage until the Ninningers summon Shurikenjin to rescue him before eliminating them with Shurikenjin UFO.

Suddenly, they realized that they are from another world and if something older exists in this world, it will quickly vanish. With Kyuemon taking his leave, the Ninningers are captured by police forces and labelled as public enemies. Shinnosuke remembered Roidmude 089 but none of the police forces including Mr. Belt prioritize the case, having entirely shifted to the dimensionally displaced Ninningers. After spying the Ninningers in their Ninjutsu dojo, Shinnosuke confronts Takaharu and decided to help him, first by evading police forces. The leftover Hitokarage in Drive's world attacked until Kiriko rescues them in a minivan. Kiriko shows them the silver-haired man (Roidmude 089)'s photo, which Saijo found on the internet. The man himself is a late scientist named Doctor D who died 40 years ago.

Searching for clues in Doctor D's old lab, they were joined by Mach, whom saved them from Hiruchameleon. Go as well had made some research into the history and using the photos he found, Shinnosuke finally solved the case until the lab itself was destroyed by Turtle Bazooka with Tridoron saved them. Regrouping with the other Ninningers, Shinnosuke and Mach revealed Shocker as the true mastermind. Once the Ninningers and Kamen Riders have transformed, they fight the Shocker armies and finally eliminated them, restoring UFOmaruIcon-crosswiki, YoshitakaIcon-crosswiki and TsumujiIcon-crosswiki back into existence again. After several encouragements, they part ways as the Ninningers vanish via a green aura.

Super Hero Taisen GPIcon-crosswiki

Due to a timeline alteration by Shocker in 1973, Shinnosuke, Special Unit Police Force, and most of the Riders who were heroes become brainwashed villains into doing Shocker's dirty work of capturing the Rider resistance, which only leaves Blade in being captured and Kotaro Minami still being Kamen Rider BLACK and resisting Shocker's reign. Shinnosuke uses the title Shocker Rider Drive (ショッカーライダードライブ Shokkā Raidā Doraibu) in place of Kamen Rider Drive. Yuto and Go are still the same prior to the timeline alteration, and the alteration results in the existence of Kamen Rider 3. Kotaro (as Black) fought against Drive when he protects children who resist Shocker. However, he is damaged by Drive when taking a stray attack from him that would have hurt the kids. Kotaro then finally manages to make Shinnosuke remember who he is and regain his original timeline memories in the process. Kamen Rider 3 appeared to blind the Shocker armies, allowing for Kiriko and Kotaro to escape to the Drive Pit secretly to find the truth about the altered timeline, while Drive was challenged by Ride 3 to a bit of a race and he lost him before catching up with Kiriko back at the Drive Pit. Back in the Drive Pit, they discuss about the existence of why Kamen Rider 3, known as the "Rider who should never have existed" existed after Shocker altered the timeline. During their conversation, they're surrounded by Shocker army, led by this altered world's Genpachiro Otta known as Cheetahkatatsumuri to capture and kill the Drive and BLACK, along with their fellow allies, who compromised the Drive Pit. However, they managed to escape from Shocker thanks to Kotaro's sacrifice, but Kiriko cannot make it and is presumed dead, while the Drive Pit chief, Jun cannot make it after being thrown to his death. He later meets up with Kamen Rider 3, in a civilian form, Kyoichiro Kuroi, who reveals that he is currently on the run from the Shocker Riders. While running from Shocker and the memory altered Riders, he and Kyoichiro are joined by Yuto Sakurai and Go Shijima to find Kamen Rider 3. While entrusting Yuto and Go to take care of Kyoichiro, and take him to safety in Rider Town, Shinnosuke left to find another hiding place to recover his original memory to catch up with his allies. Feeling something strange about Rider 3's true allegiance, Shinnosuke phoned one of two his allies who survived Shocker's attack on the Drive Pit, Rinna and Kyu to find a profile between Shocker and Rider 3 in this altered world, while asking him to prepare an upgrade on the Drive system for an upcoming Shocker's trap. With the help of Kyu, the surviving members of Drive Pit finds out that Shocker had been luring the Kamen Rider resistance through using Rider 3 into a fake Rider Town, known as Shocker Town, to make the Riders fall into Shocker's traps and alterinf their memories.

On the later day, Shinnosuke is fully recovered and prepared, and challenges Shocker to a race in a Rider Gran Prix on the next day, to restore the original timeline, if Shocker accepts it. If Drive lost, he will surrender to Shocker. He is surprised that Kiriko survived the previous fall and was currently being held a hostage. While in Shocker's prison, separate from Kiriko, Shinnosuke discussed with Yuto about Rider 3's hidden depth, and ensure Shinnosuke will find a solution to win and make Rider 3 realize if he felt regret on killing the original Double Riders in the past of '73.

As the race is about to start on the next day, while Kiriko and Yuto are tied by Shocker, in case not to interfere the race however, Shocker has been planning on cheating the race through their dirty works to make their strongest Rider, Rider 3 to win by default, using the other Riders as a shield, even sending Mashin Chaser to prevent and kill Drive from winning. With the help of a revived Kotaro (as BLACK RX), Faiz and Mach on countering Shocker's dirty cheats, Drive managed to get by Rider 3 in the first place, but was blasted behind. As Rider 3 insults Drive as a loser and must give up, Drive does not care, and gives an empathy speech to Rider 3 that winning or not does not matter, as long they have to keep up and try to find a solution to win without using dirty tricks, while also telling Rider 3 if he regrets killing the original Double Riders in the past, still Rider 3 does not care about Drive's empathy to him. Due to Drive's empathy, many civilians, including Shocker's own cadets rebels against Shocker and supports Drive to win.

As Drive wins the race using Type Formula, Rider 3 accept his loss while being encouraged by Drive to keep up to be winner. However, Shocker still don't know to accept their lose and decide to attack the resistant Riders, while the Great Leader of Shocker imprisoned Rider 3, who was revealed to be an energy source of the History Modifying Machine for the Great Leader's uses in a form of a giant mecha Rider Robo. Drive and his resistant Rider allies are joined by the Royal Ace Riders, who were once aligned with Shocker, but managed to regain their original memories as heroes. As Rider 3 still haa his willpower of being a true Kamen Rider to revive the original Double Riders, at the same time all memory altered Kamen Riders regained their original memories by the Double Riders' presence, The Great Leader has gone too far using Rider 3's powers with the timeline alteration beam to store most of the Riders into a data inside Rider 3's body, leading Rider 3 himself to break free of the Great Leader's imprisonment, rendering the Shocker's leader unable to use timeline alteration beam.

With the help of a Super Sentai Team, Shuriken Sentai NinningerIcon-crosswiki, as they combine the OtomoNin into ShurikenjinIcon-crosswiki to defeat Rider Robo. Just as Drive witnesses the battle, Yoshitaka IgasakiIcon-crosswiki, The Last Ninja and grandfather of Ninningers gives him an OtomoNin Shuriken: Tridoron, which transforms Tridoron into OtomoNin Tridoron. Shinnosuke joins the Ninningers as they recombine their OtomoNin into Shurikenjin Tridoron. Together they fought against the Rider Robo once again and execute their finishing move to destroy it along with the History Modifying Machine inside it. With the destruction of Great Leader's Rider Robo form and The History Modifying Machine by the hands of Shurikenjin Tridoron, the history recreated by Shocker has been undone and Kamen Rider 3 won't be able to exist as a Rider any more. Kyoichiro says goodbye to Shinnosuke and his comrades, and ensure that he will be seen again on the other side. After the original timeline is finally restored, both Shinnosuke and Kiriko are saddened over Go's death as they mourn him and they will never forget the sacrifice Go made for the Riders. Before Mr. Belt informed Shinnosuke about an incoming Roidmude attacks, Shinnosuke sees that Kyoichiro is a successful racer for the Tachibana Racing Club, with the assistance of the three kids who were formerly Shocker cadets in the altered timeline on a newspaper Yuto gave to Shinnosuke.

D-Video Special: Kamen Rider 4

Wpid-20150313083544

The timeline is altered once again after the events of Super Hero Taisen GP, where time itself is stuck in a strange loop on April 4, 2015. Shinnosuke, after recalling previous events, attempts to fix the disruption in time along with Zeronos and Faiz though their attempts inevitably fail with Go's death followed by time resetting itself back to April 4th, 9:55AM over and over again, as Drive and the Riders fight increasing odds from Shocker. Desperate to save Go, Shinnosuke sacrifices himself in one of the time loops to ensure the safety of his friend's life at the cost of his own.

Types

Kamen Rider Drive's forms are called Types (タイプ Taipu). Some Shift Cars alter the suit based on a certain attribute, whereas other Shift Cars arm Drive with a certain element or weapon, by changing the Shift Tire (シフトタイヤ Shifuto Taiya) on Drive's suit for a Tire Exchange (タイヤ交換 Taiya Kōkan). These two types of Shift Cars can be used in conjunction with each other, but some Shift Tires can only work with certain Types.

After turning the Advanced Ignition on the Drive Driver, Drive can perform one of two actions in each Type: Lifting the Shift Car placed within the Shift Brace between one and three times initiates either a special ability or an attack, while pressing the Igniter on the Shift Brace and lifting the Shift Car once unleashes the Type's Full Throttle (フルスロットル Furu Surottoru) finishing move.

  • Height: 199 cm.
  • Weight: 99 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 3.9 t.
  • Kicking power: 5.8 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 27.5 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 6.2 sec.

Type Speed (タイプスピード Taipu Supīdo) is Zerodrive's concept sports car-based form, which is accessed through the present-time Speed Prototype Shift Car. It is used by Shinnosuke Tomari.

It is aesthetically similar to the completed Type Speed, but with its colors inverted and bears the Archetype Gear (アーキタイプギア Ākitaipu Gia).

Zerodrive is the first functioning model of the Drive System and as such, its statistics and functionality is severely limited due to the fact that Krim Steinbelt has yet to even create a functioning Shift Car to work with the system. Despite these setbacks, Shinnosuke is able to use Zerodrive due to his experience and long term usage of the Drive Driver.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the ZeroDrop (ゼロドロップ Zerodoroppu), which is presumably a weaker version of the present Type Speed's SpeeDrop.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Ghost & Drive: Super Movie War Genesis.

Kamen Rider Drive's standard Types' ending theme is entitled "Don't lose your mind".

All versions of this Type bear a Shift Tire across Drive's torso. While changing Shift Cars, upbeat jazz music plays.

Tireless

Type Speed Pre-Tire

This version of Type Speed is briefly seen during both Drive's transformation and Tire Exchange, the latter specifically after the previous Shift Tire is ejected and before the new Shift Tire gets attached in its place. When Imitation Drive robbed the Max Flare Tire in Type HIGH SPEED! The True Power! Type High Speed is Born!, the real Drive was left stuck in this state until Mach mistakingly struck him with his Kick Macher attack.

In the case of an incompatible user, such as Kiriko, attempting to access the Drive System, a transformation into the tire-less Kamen Rider Drive is briefly achieved. However, once the Type Speed Tire (タイプスピードタイヤ Taipu Supīdo Taiya) attempts to combine with the Type Speed body, the transformation is immediately rejected. This prompted Kiriko and Mr. Belt to find a candidate who could successfully handle Drive's power and maintain the transformation. How Were the Special Investigation Unit Selected?

Type Speed (タイプスピード Taipu Supīdo) is Drive's default sports car-based form. Accessed through the Shift Speed Car, this form bears the Type Speed Tire (タイプスピードタイヤ Taipu Supīdo Taiya).

Out of Drive's Types, this form has the most balance in terms of strength and agility, which also makes it his most frequently used form.

Drive's special ability in this form is, as the name implies, speed. When he lifts the Shift Speed Car three times, Drive is able to move incredibly fast and perform high velocity attacks. He can also perform the Turbo Smash (ターボスマッシュ Tābo Sumasshu) attack, where Drive makes the Type Speed Tire rotate rapidly as he drifts towards the enemy and trips them up into the air. Afterwards, he unleashes a barrage of rapid punches onto the falling target, making an image of a speedometer appear from the resulting series of punches. Alternatively, Drive can skip the tripping portion of his attack and go immediately to its punching portion.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the SpeeDrop (スピードロップ Supīdoroppu), where Drive focuses power into his right leg, making it glow red as he slams into the enemy with a flying kick.

  • A variation of this finisher has four spinning tires manifest to surround the enemy while Drive turns his back to the target as Tridoron races around him, focusing his power. The tires then fully close in on the target, making the target shoot forwards towards Drive, who instead jumps at Tridoron and kicks at it, making him bounce off of it and kick the target. Drive then keeps bouncing off Tridoron and kicking the target in a pinball-like manner until he comes in with the final kick, skidding to a stop.

Type Speed Flare's Full Throttle finisher is the Flare Stream (フレアストリーム Furea Sutorīmu), where Drive launches a barrage of fireballs from the Max Flare Tire towards the enemy.

  • During the fight against Kamen Rider Lupin, Drive finishes the Rider off by using an alternative of the SpeeDrop (スピードロップ Supīdoroppu) Tridoron variation. Four spinning tires manifest to surround the enemy and bombarded Lupin with his while Drive turns his back to the target as Tridoron races around him, focusing his power. The tires then fully close in on the target, making the target shoot forwards towards Drive, who instead jumps at Tridoron and kicks at it, making him bounce off of it and kick the target. Drive then keeps bouncing off Tridoron and kicking the target in a pinball-like manner with flaming strikes, though this is notably slower compared with Type Speed's version until he comes in with the final kick, skidding to a stop.

Type Speed Shadow's Full Throttle finisher is the Shadow Shuriken (シャドーシュリケン Shadō Shuriken).

  • During the fight against Roidmude 102, Drive finishes the Roidmude off by using an alternative of the SpeeDrop (スピードロップ Supīdoroppu) Tridoron variation.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Justice Cage.

Type Speed Hunter's Full Throttle finisher is the JustiSmash (ジャスティスマッシュ Jasutisumasshu), where after trapping the enemy in his weapon's Energy Prison, Drive uses projections of Tridoron's tires to launch himself at the cage, then upwards and back, making a loop before sliding at the cage with a punch, the cage lifting seconds before Drive can smash into it, destroying the enemy.

Type Wild (タイプワイルド Taipu Wairudo) is Drive's dune buggy-based form. Accessed through the Shift Wild Car, this form bears the Type Wild Tire (タイプワイルドタイヤ Taipu Wairudo Taiya).

In terms of Drive's Types, this form has much more physical power than Type Speed, boosting his strength significantly and allowing him to use power-type Shift Cars like Rumble Dump with relative ease. As an added bonus, since all of Type Wild's Shift Tires are attached to Drive's right shoulder instead of around his torso, Drive can use his new strength to perform powerful shoulder checks and guard against attacks much more easily using his right shoulder. In exchange, Type Wild cannot jump nearly as high as either Type Speed or any of its Tire Exchange modes, nor is this form able to run as fast.

Drive's special ability in this form is enhanced strength and defensive capabilities. He is also capable of performing two different attacks.

  • Over Wild (オーバーワイルド Ōbā Wairudo): After Drive lifts the Shift Car once, he uses the Type Wild Tire to shoulder check the enemy with enough force to send them flying.
  • Pile Break (パイルブレイク Pairu Bureiku): Never used in the series proper, though it is said to allow Drive to execute a powerful punch.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the WilDrop (ワイルドロップ Wairudoroppu).

Stat-wise, Type Wild Dump is basically an exaggeration of Type Wild's stats: excellent offensively and does poorly agility-wise, making this form the second slowest out of all of Drive's known forms.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Rumble Smasher. Unlike Type Speed Dump where the Rumble Smasher goes berserk, Type Wild Dump keeps the Rumble Smasher in check thanks to Type Wild's much higher strength.

Type Wild Dump's Full Throttle finisher is the DriRumble (ドリランブル Doriranburu), where Drive slams the Rumble Smasher into the target while it is spinning at high speeds with incredible force.

In Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Ghost & Drive: Super Movie War Genesis, Drive is able to transform from Type Speed to Type Wild Dump without changing into Type Wild first.

"Tire Koukan: Fire Braver! (Fire engine wails, accompanied by ringing bells)"
―Activation announcement[src]
  • Height: 203 cm.
  • Weight: 140.7 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 9.2 t.
  • Kicking power: 14.8 t.

Stat-wise, Type Technic Braver has greater offensive power than Type Technic alone, to the point of producing more power than Type Wild. However, it has reduced agility stats.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Ladder Expander.

Type Technic Braver's Full Throttle finisher is the Rescue Down (レスキューダウン Resukyū Daun), where Drive makes the Ladder Expander grab the enemy and drag them in his direction close enough for him to unleash a powerful side kick into the captured target's chest.

Appearances: Drive Episode 9, Kamen Rider 4: Episode 1

Stat-wise, Type Technic Gravity is the slowest form Drive can ever use at this point. However, it still can jump higher than Type Wild Dump. Also, despite having a somewhat lesser jumping height compared to Type Technic Braver, it is stronger in offensive power than the aforementioned Tire Exchange mode.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the 10-ton Weight.

Type Technic Gravity's Full Throttle finisher is the Impact Ten (インパクト10 (テン) Inpakuto Ten).

Appearances: Drive Episodes 9, 38

Type Technic Winter

  • Punching power: 9.1 t.
  • Kicking power: 15.3 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 15.6 m.

The ice resurfacer-based Shift Road Winter Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Technic into Type Technic Winter (タイプテクニックウィンター Taipu Tekunikku Uintā), which bears the freeze-themed Road Winter Tire (ロードウィンタータイヤ Rōdo Uintā Taiya).

Stat-wise, Type Technic Winter has less punching power than Type Technic Braver or Gravity, but more kicking power than Type Technic Braver. Winter's jumping height is fractionally better than Type Technic Gravity and can easily be overlooked, and is also barely faster than the aforementioned Tire Exchange mode.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Frostreamer.

Appearances: Drive Episode 14, 43, Dr. Pac-Man vs. Ex-Aid & Ghost with Legend Rider



With the invention of the Mach Driver Honoh, the Drive Driver has undergone improvements to better combat the growing Roidmude threat. Drive's first upgrade is the Next System (ネクストシステム Nekusuto Shisutemu), which allows both him and Mach to use a special hybrid Shift Car/Signal Bike. His second upgrade is the Advanced System (アドバンスドシステム Adobansudo Shisutemu), which utilizes supplementary Shift Cars that allow Drive to maintain performance levels while transformed over prolonged periods of time.

All versions of this Type bear a Shift Tire across Drive's torso, as well as the DH Kourin (DH-コウリン Dī Aichi Kōrin, short for/lit. "Dead Heat Rear Wheel") on his right shoulder. While either changing Shift Cars or entering the Dead Zone state, suspenseful chase music with squealing tires as accompaniment plays. Unlike Mach, even though Type Dead Heat bears a Kourin Signal, the DH Kourin does not change into a different one whenever Drive initiates a Tire Exchange.

Dead Heat Tireless

Type Dead Heat Pre-Tire

This version of Type Dead Heat is briefly seen during Tire Exchange, specifically after the previous Shift Tire is ejected and before the new Shift Tire gets attached in its place. It was also glimpsed briefly during his first transformation into Type Dead Heat using the incomplete Shift Dead Heat Shift Car.

Type Dead Heat

Type Dead Heat

"Drive: Type Dead Heat! (Guitar solo, followed by a zooming sound and a tire screech)"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 200 cm.
  • Weight: 107.1 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 15.3 t.
  • Kicking power: 23.7 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 36.5 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 3.2 sec. (63.92 mph)

Type Dead Heat (タイプデッドヒート Taipu Deddo Hīto) is Drive's motorcycle and sidecar-based form, which has the physical characteristics of both his and Mach's Rider Systems. Accessed through the Shift Dead Heat Car, this form bears the Type Dead Heat Tire (タイプデッドヒートタイヤ Taipu Deddo Hīto Taiya).

In terms of Drive's Types, this form scores much higher in every Ability Perimeters compared to many of his other Types: surpassing Type Wild Dump in offensive strength, Type Speed's average speed, and the highest jump measured overall. It also allows Drive to function in a Super Heavy Acceleration field, but with the drawback of his Ability Perimeters being significantly reduced.

Drive's special ability in this form is being able to emulate Heart's Dead Zone (デッドゾーン Deddo Zōn) state by turning the Advanced Ignition, which raises his combat capabilities to an incredible degree. Compared to Heart, Type Dead Heat's Dead Zone ability is superior. However, using this ability can overload Drive's Rider System if the DH Kourin's meter redlines. Once the system maxes out and the Type Dead Heat Tire's treads burst, the operator will lose control over their actions.

Because of the way Shift Dead Heat is designed, this form lacks a proper Full Throttle finisher. Instead, Drive uses the Dead Zone ability to defeat his enemies either with raw power or by generating a red energy tire to kick at the target. Afterwards, he can press the Igniter to initiate one of two attacks.

Appearances: Drive Episodes 16-18, 20-22, 26, Dr. Pac-Man vs. Ex-Aid & Ghost with Legend Rider

Type Dead Heat Flare
KRDr-Drivedeadheatflare

Type Dead Heat Flare

"Tire Koukan: Max Flare! (Electric guitar squeal)"
―Activation announcement[src]
  • Height: 200 cm.
  • Weight: 108.9 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 15.6 t.
  • Kicking power: 24.2 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 36.4 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 3.3 sec. (61.98 mph)

The flaming hotrod-based Shift Max Flare Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Dead Heat into Type Dead Heat Flare (タイプデッドヒートフレア Taipu Deddo Hīto Furea), which bears the fire-themed Max Flare Tire (マックスフレアタイヤ Makkusu Furea Taiya).

Stat-wise, Type Dead Heat Flare has minimal gains and disadvantages from Type Dead Heat: barely doing more damage, yet having a marginally lowered jumping height and running speed.

In this mode, Drive is empowered with fire-enhanced abilities.

Type Dead Heat Flare's Full Throttle finisher is an enhanced version of the Dead Heat Drop (デッドヒートドロップ Deddo Hīto Doroppu), where Drive is coated in flames during his Dead Zone-powered attack.

This form is exclusive to Drive Episode 20.


Unlike other Types which bear only one Shift Tire, all versions of this Type bear two Shift Tires on Drive's forearms (near the elbow joints). While changing Shift Cars, dramatic music plays.

Type Formula Tireless

Type Formula Pre-Tires

This version of Type Formula is briefly seen during both Drive's transformation and Tire Exchange, the latter specifically after the previous Shift Tires are ejected and before the new Shift Tires get attached in their place.

"Drive: Type Formula! (Dramatic music, followed by a Formula One car passing by)"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 202 cm.
  • Weight: 111.1 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 16 t.
  • Kicking power: 28.6 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 47.1 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 0.200 sec. (0.120 sec. at full speed) [1,023 mph normally and 1,705 mph at full speed]

Type Formula (タイプフォーミュラ Taipu Fōmyura) is Drive's Formula One car-based form. Accessed through the Shift Formula Car, this form bears two Type Formula Tires (タイプフォーミュラタイヤ Taipu Fōmyura Taiya).

In terms of Drive's Types, this form has much more power than Type Dead Heat, allowing him to throw stronger punches and kicks, as well as function in a Super Heavy Acceleration field better than the aforementioned Type. Also, despite the bulky upper armor, it has a huge jumping height and monstrous running speed beyond even the speed of sound ranging from 500m/s to 833m/s. All over Drive's body are stickers with the names of all eighteen Tire Exchange Shift Cars that aren't Type Formula-styled, similar to a real Formula One car bearing various stickers of their sponsors. If his Power Gail Wing (パワーゲイルウィング Pawā Geiru Uingu) breastplate is removed, it will reveal Type Formula's car engine-like power source, the Core Driviar-N (コア・ドライビア-N Koa Doraibia-En), underneath.

Drive's special ability in this form is acceleration like Type Speed's, as well as wind manipulation. He is also armed with the Trailer-Hou. When Drive lifts the Shift Formula Car three times, he can move at a velocity far more faster than Type Speed, allowing him to batter an enemy with multiple attacks. However, any Full Throttle finisher used by this form (except for ones that utilize the Trailer-Hou) can place a huge strain on Drive's body due to the amount of G-Forces it brings.

The back of Drive's body is equipped with a Core Driviar-powered booster called the X-Fan Boost (エクスファンブースト Ekusu Fan Būsuto), which allows him to move at a speed on the same level as a G-Force. While running, he can increase his running speed by lifting the Shift Formula Car three times. The downside of this Type Change, however, is that using Type Formula for a long time can cause mechanical shock to both his body and the Rider System. To fix this, the three Shift Formula-styled Tire Exchange Shift Cars, nicknamed the Pit Crew (ピットクルー Pitto Kurū), aid him by using their abilities to repair all of the damages inflicted upon Type Formula's body and bring Drive back into tip-top shape.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the Formula Drop (フォーミュラドロップ Fōmyura Doroppu), where Drive is covered in bright blue energy as he strikes the enemy with a flying kick. By lifting the Shift Formula Car seven times, Drive can enhance this attack's power in order to destroy the enemy completely. However, doing this may cause him to explode with the enemy as well.

  • During Type Formula's first use, its Full Throttle finisher was an unnamed Rider Punch which covered Drive in bright blue energy as he dashed straight into the enemy and struck them with a double handed punch. Unfortunately, the sheer power of this attack on top of the G-Forces pressed onto Drive's body ended up giving Shinnosuke whiplash.

Type Formula Mantarn
KRDr-Driveformulamantarn

Type Formula Mantarn

"Tire Koukan: Formula 01! (Engine roar)"
―Activation announcement[src]
  • Height: 202 cm.
  • Weight: 113.4 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 15.9 t.
  • Kicking power: 28.9 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 46.6 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 0.240 sec. (852.3 mph)

The gas refueling tank-based Shift Mantarn F01 Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Formula into Type Formula Mantarn (タイプフォーミュラマンターン Taipu Fōmyura Mantān, lit. "Type Formula Full Tank"), which bears two Mantarn F01 Tires (マンターンF01タイヤ Mantān Efu Zero Wan Taiya, lit. "Full Tank F01 Tires").

Stat-wise, Type Formula Mantarn both loses a fraction of punching power and gains a fraction of kicking power from Type Formula, but this can easily be overlooked. It also takes a hit to the jumping height and running speed.

In this mode, Drive can boost his power by using the Mantarn F01 Tires like nitro boosters via the Resurrection Fuel (リザレクションフューエル Rizarekushon Fyūeru) stored within. It also helps with his fatigue somewhat due to being based off of Mad Doctor's technology. When the Shift Mantarn Car is lifted three times, both Drive's usual running speed from Type Formula and the performance of the X-Fan Boost are upgraded to a much higher level. Another application of the Resurrection Fuel's boosting powers is the ability to boost Type Formula Mantarn's punches, which can desynchronize the fusion of a Roidmude that evolved using a Neo Viral Core.

Stat-wise, Type Formula Jacky has both higher punching power and kicking power than Type Formula alone. However, as a trade-off, it jumps less and runs even slower than Type Formula Mantarn.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Jacky Riser.

Appearances: Drive Episodes 23, 24

Stat-wise, Type Formula Sparner has more punching power than Type Formula Jacky, but fractionally less kicking power. It can also jump higher, as well as run faster, than Type Formula Jacky.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Grasper Claw.

Appearances: Drive Episodes 23-25


All versions of this Type bear a Shift Tire across Drive's left shoulder. During the Tire Blending process, the three Shift Tires being combined first attach to his elbow in a manner similar to Type Formula's Shift Tires. While initiating a Tire Blending, dramatic rock music plays. Like Mach's Signal and Tire Exchanges, Drive's stats are not altered when he's equipped with a Shift Tire formed from a Tire Blending.

  • Height: 198.5 cm.
  • Weight: 108.0 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 18 t
  • Kicking power: 31 t
  • Maximum jump height: 45 m
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 0.643 sec. (318.1 mph)

Type Tridoron (タイプトライドロン Taipu Toraidoron) is Drive's sports car-based evolved form of Type Speed, as well as his ultimate form. Accessed through the Shift Tridoron Car, this form converts the actual Tridoron into armor for Drive, complete with the Type Tridoron Tire (タイプトライドロンタイヤ Taipu Toraidoron Taiya).

In terms of Drive's Types, this form easily outclasses most others. In basic performance specs alone, Type Tridoron's punching power measures 2 tons heavier than Type Formula, with kicking power also measuring 2.4 tons heavier than the aforementioned Type. While Type Formula does maintain superiority in regards to speed and jumping ability, Type Tridoron is capable of comparable super speed combat; being only 0.443 sec. slower than Type Formula (0.523 sec. slower from Type Formula's top speed).

Drive's special ability in this form is being able to initiate a Tire Blending (タイヤかき混ぜる Taiya Kakimazeru) by turning the Advanced Ignition before he presses the button marked with three tires on Shift Tridoron and then lifts it once, which allows him to combine three Tire Exchange Shift Cars of a particular set into a singular Shift Tire with the unique powers and abilities of the chosen Shift Cars for immediate and simultaneous use. Optionally, Drive can delay combining the Shift Tires by launching them as projectiles to attack his enemies before returning back to complete the Tire Blending process. Drive can also push this ability to the maximum by combining all of his Shift Tires with the Type Tridoron Tire into a single glowing white tire. This, when coupled with Heart increasing his own power to the maximum, is powerful enough to destroy even the Sigma Circular.

Other abilities include advanced energy shielding, which generates a red bubble-like protective area around Drive that is capable of deflecting Super Evolution Roidmude-class energy attacks, and utilizing the smaller tires under his feet as a pair of roller skates.

Type Tridoron Belt Control

Type Tridoron under Mr. Belt's control

Mr. Belt can assume control over Type Tridoron's body when needed. On such ocassions, his face graphics appear on the Dual High Beam Eye (デュアルハイビームアイ Dyuaru Hai Bīmu Ai) of Drive's Tri-D Met (トライドメット Torai-Do Metto).

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the TriDrop (トライドロップ Toraidoroppu), where Drive focuses power into his right leg, making it glow red as he slams into the enemy with a flying kick.

Type Tridoron's ending theme is entitled "Unlimited Drive".

In this mode, Drive can produce multiple clones of himself and throw spike projectiles along with fireballs at the same time.

Type Tridoron Attack 1.2.3's Full Throttle finisher is an enhanced version of the TriDrop (トライドロップ Toraidoroppu), which focuses more colorful energy.

By Tire Blending his emergency-based Shift Cars (Justice Hunter, Mad Doctor, and Fire Braver), Drive can upgrade Type Tridoron into Type Tridoron People Saver (タイプトライドロンピーポーセーバー Taipu Toraidoron Pīpō Sēbā), which bears the People Saver Tire (ピーポーセーバータイヤ Pīpō Sēbā Taiya).

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Justice Cage, Cure Quicker, and Ladder Expander.

Type Tridoron People Saver's Full Throttle finisher is an enhanced version of the JustiSmash (ジャスティスマッシュ Jasutisumasshu), where after trapping the enemy in the Justice Cage's Energy Prison and using the Ladder Expander to lift them into the air, Drive floats up and destroys the imprisoned target with an energized punch once the cage is removed.

  • During Type Tridoron People Saver's first use, its Full Throttle "finisher" allowed Drive to utilize all three of his Tire Specific Items at once for various purposes (the Justice Cage to imprison any nearly culprits and the Cure Quicker & Ladder Expander to assist any nearby civilians by healing those who are injured and grabbing those who are falling respectively).

  • Maximum jump height: 30 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 5.4 sec.

Type Fruits (タイプフルーツ Taipu Furūtsu) is Drive's orange-based armored Japanese Samurai form, resembling Kamen Rider Gaim's Orange Arms. Accessed through the Shift Fruits Car, this form bears the Type Fruits Tire (タイプフルーツタイヤ Taipu Furūtsu Taiya).

In terms of Drive's Types, this form punches with the same amount of force as Type Dead Heat and kicks harder than nearly all of Drive's standard forms, except for Type Wild Dump and Type Wild Wrecker. Beyond that, while Type Fruits has a slightly lower jumping height compared to Type Speed, it can run faster than the aforementioned Type's standard running speed.

Drive's special ability in this form is akin to that of Kamen Rider Gaim's. He is also armed with the Musou Saber and Daidaimaru.

The biggest disadvantage Drive has in this form is the giant hat atop his head, which has minor effects on the vantage of his surroundings and the fact that with it on, he can't fit inside of Tridoron.

Much like with the Legend Rider Lockseeds, this Shift Car appears to channel the Rider's personality, as after Drive attacked Megahex with the Musou Saber and Daidaimaru, he briefly did dance-like motions.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Drive & Gaim: Movie War Full Throttle.


In this form, while changing Shift Cars, upbeat jazz music plays. Unlike the original version, both its standby music and the announcement for the Type by Mr. Belt have been slown down.

Type High Speed (タイプハイスピード Taipu Hai Supīdo) is Drive's luxurious sports car-based form, which is essentially a silver version of his Type Speed form with altered shoulder pads and the emblem on the helmet receiving wings. Accessed through the Shift High Speed Car, this form bears the Type High Speed Tire (タイプハイスピードタイヤ Taipu Hai Supīdo Taiya).

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the High SpeeDrop (ハイスピードロップ Hai Supīdoroppu), which appears to be a replica of Type Speed's SpeeDrop where Drive charges himself in a glittering light-like energy before destroying the target with a flying kick.

Along with the Mega Max Flare Tire, it was later revealed that Type High Speed was just a redecoration of Drive's original Type Speed form and nothing more. As such, it shares its stats with the original Type Speed.

This form is exclusive to Type HIGH SPEED! The True Power! Type High Speed is Born!.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Drum Shields.

Due to Type High Speed merely being a redecoration of the original Type Speed, Type High Speed Vegas shares its stats with the original Type Speed Vegas.

In this mode, Drive can supposedly utilize more powerful flame attacks than Type Speed Flare.

Along with Type High Speed, it was later revealed that the Mega Max Flare Tire was just a redecoration of the original Max Flare Tire and nothing more. As such, it shares its stats with the original Type Speed Flare.

In this form, while changing Shift Cars, upbeat rock music plays.

Type Special (タイプスペシャル Taipu Supesharu) is Drive's futuristic car-based form. Accessed through the Special side of the Shift Next Special Car, this form bears the Type Special Tire (タイプスペシャルタイヤ Taipu Supesharu Taiya). Due to the corresponding Shift Car being from the future, this form combines the powers of the present and future Drives, allowing Drive to match up with the immense power of Paradox Roidmude's advanced form, which was formed by the fusion of 108's present and future selves. As such, when Shinnosuke transforms into this form, a projection of Eiji is shown beside him doing the same transformation.

When Drive lifts the Shift Next Special Car four times, he is able to summon the Shingou Ax and perform a series of quick purple energy slashes.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the SpeeDrop Type Special (スピードロップ タイプスペシャル Supīdoroppu Taipu Supesharu). Drive first begins by punching the enemy straight into the air while the NEXTridoron surrounds the enemy in a large blue energy sphere. Drive later leaps upwards and performs a powerful kick charged with yellow-colored lightning, strong enough to destroy even the most powerful of Roidmudes.

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.

  • Height: 199 cm.
  • Weight: 103.8 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 4 t.
  • Kicking power: 5.6 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 26 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 6.5 sec.

Super Dead Heat Drive (超デッドヒートドライブ Chō Deddo Hīto Doraibu) is Drive's Mashin Chaser-based form, which is accessed through the Tridoron Key and through the Mach Driver Honoh.

Appearance-wise, it is very similar to Mashin Chaser, and is incomplete, showing circuitry and piping, like Mashin Chaser, it is also incredibly bulky compared to other Drive forms, making it slower than his enemies during combat.

His stats are also significantly lower than Deadheat Drive as it was not meant to be used for live combat. As a result, during his debut, he is barely able to keep up against codeless Roidmudes once his Dead Zone effect runs out.

Drive's special ability in this form is being able to emulate Heart's Dead Zone (デッドゾーン Deddo Zōn) state by hitting the Boost Igniter four times, which raises his combat capabilities to an incredible degree.

This form's Full Throttle finisher is an unnamed Rider Punch, which covers Drive's arm in bright red energy as he jumps towards the enemy and strikes him with a powerful energized punch

This form is exclusive to Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.

Deadheat Drive (デッドヒートドライブ Deddo Hīto Doraibu) is Drive's motorcycle and sidecar-based form, which has the physical characteristics of both his and Mach's Rider Systems. Accessed through the Shift Dead Heat Car, this form bears the Type Dead Heat Tire (タイプデッドヒートタイヤ Taipu Deddo Hīto Taiya), as well as the DH Kourin (DH-コウリン Dī Aichi Kōrin, short for/lit. "Dead Heat Rear Wheel") on his right shoulder.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Shinnosuke Tomari is portrayed by Ryoma Takeuchi (竹内 涼真 Takeuchi Ryōma).

As Kamen Rider Drive, his suit actor is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji) who has been the suit actor for the majority of leading Heisei Kamen Riders (except Kuuga and Hibiki).

Rider No.

As the protagonist of Kamen Rider Drive, Drive is labeled Kamen Rider #31 (仮面ライダー31号 Kamen Raidā Sanjūichigō) and Heisei Rider #16 (平成ライダー16号 Heisei Raidā Jūrokugō).

As noted by producer Shinichiro Shirakura in the run-up to the release of Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai, with the 15 Showa Riders and then 15 Heisei Riders facing off being "the point in which Heisei has finally aligned with Showa and in which both are equal", Drive, as the Rider following Gaim, marks the point where "Heisei Rider history will actually surpass Showa, making it a massive turning point for the whole franchise's history".

DRIVE FEAT. ACCEL

Drive and Accel

  • Shinnosuke shares some similarities with Ryu Terui/Kamen Rider Accel even the suit design details, including:
    • Both Shinnosuke and Ryu work in special divisions in the police force, with Ryu working with Dopant-suspected crime scenes and Shinnosuke working with Slowdown-involved crime scenes.
    • Both Riders have a red base form and a high-speed blue upgrade form. Their blue upgrade forms also have some kind of limitation to them (Drive Type Formula straining the user possibly causing whiplash and Accel Trial's risk of being forcibly de-transformed if the Maximum Drive is not successful).
    • Both Riders have their drive to find and exact revenge on their father's killers overriding their sense of justice and had to be talked down by the riders who came before them.
    • Both Riders got married with the lead females of their respective series in Movie Wars that came after the end of said series.
    • Drive's Turbo Smash attack is similar to Accel Trial's Machine Gun Spike Maximum Drive.
    • Both eventually have children at some point.
    • In response to the fans, Drive officially meet Accel in Kamen Rider Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Chaser.[1] This is also a request by Tomari's actor, Ryoma, whom stated that Kamen Rider Accel is his favorite Rider and he quickly chose Ryu's actor, Minehiro when the director decided to bring a past Rider actor to the Drive Saga.[2]
  • With his profession as a police officer, Shinnosuke is the sixth policeman transformed into a Kamen Rider after Makoto HikawaMasashi Sudo, Reiji Kurosaki, Ryu Terui, and Rinko Daimon. However, Shinnosuke is the first police officer to become the main Rider.
  • He is the second primary Rider to drive a car-type Rider Machine since Kohtaro Minami (while as Kamen Rider Black RX).
  • He is the first primary Rider since Gentaro Kisaragi to call himself a Kamen Rider.
  • He is the second Rider that has been killed, and then revived to transform into a Final Form (the first one is Gentaro Kisaragi).
  • Shinnosuke has a trademark favorite snack: milk pops.
  • Drive does not possess an O-Signal light on his helmet as Kamen Riders usually do. Instead, it is replaced with his emblem, a silver R stylized enough that it resembles a K and enclosing a D, which can stand for "Kamen Rider Drive". The emblem does not "light up", however, as behind it is a vertical line, similar to path "guide lights" in some dangerous roads, that flashes with his eyes as he changes Shift Tires. Occasionally, the eyes would instead glow when he's resolved or when he's about to fight really well.
  • Shinnosuke is one of the few Heisei era Riders to be referred to and acknowledged in his own series as a Kamen Rider.
  • Drive's Type Technic's mechanical abilities are similar to that of Kamen Rider Black RX's Robo Rider. Also like Robo Rider, Shinnosuke has a habit of moving like a robot as Type Technic.
    • Another similar trait to Kamen Rider Black RX is how changing forms requires a specific mentality.
  • Both Drive and Mach's similarities in Type Dead Heat (save for their helmets) harkens back to the Double Riders, wherein their suits eventually became near-identical to each others' with only a few differences between them.
Type High Speed unused

The prototype Type High Speed design.

  • Early scans and commercials show that Drive Type High Speed originally had the same Shift Tire as Type Speed; this was later changed in the special the form debuted in.
  • Drive's Type Formula is the first Super Form that is damaged due to overuse and yet can be fixed at the same time.
  • Out of all the Heisei Phase 2 Kamen Riders, Drive Type Tridoron took the longest to receive his Final Form by having it debut in episode 33 while the others all debuted in episode 32, except for Wizard's Infinity Style in episode 31.
    • This record is shared with, if not slightly defeated by Ghost's Mugen Damashii, which was briefly shown in episode 33 and fully debuted in episode 34.
  • Type Tridoron is the first Final Form where the Rider's Rider Machine combines with the Rider himself.
  • Ironically, while Super Dead Heat Drive has the word "Super" in its name, implying it to be more powerful than the regular Type Dead Heat, it is actually weaker than Type Dead Heat statistically and also in terms of combat ability.
    • In fact, it is his weakest form, being slower than Type Speed and weaker than Type Wild. Even the prototype Zero Drive from 2005 has slightly stronger stats than Super Dead Heat Drive with the exception of its punching power.
  • His Zero Drive form being a color-swapped version of Type Speed is similar to how Banban AkazaIcon-crosswiki, upon becoming DekaFire, had his suit become a color-swapped version of his SWAT Mode.
  • Shinnosuke is the only Rider to have used two versions of the same form (Deadheat and Super Deadheat). He is also the first user to have used the same form in two different Drivers (Deadheat in Drive Driver, and Deadheat in Mach Driver).
