The Three-Stage Transformation Tridoron (三段変形トライドロン Sandan Henkei Toraidoron, Format Number TRIDORON-3000) is a car which serves as the personal Rider Machine of Kamen Rider Drive, as well as a support mech for combat thanks to the weapons in the front of the car for him to use.

Functionality

Like the Shift Cars, it runs on Core Driviars and can bypass time distortions caused by a Roidmude. It also provides Drive with his weapons, the Handle-Ken and Door-Ju, by summoning them from the hollow section of its front portion whenever Shinnosuke calls for them. Mr. Belt can also control it remotely to assist Drive in battle when needed. Tridoron also has an ejector seat, which is done by twisting a yellow-and-black striped pull lever, then pull on it, which will send Drive flying upwards. While in standby mode or just not in battle, Tridoron's hollow section is covered with a Special Investigation Unit insignia.

It was created by Mr. Belt and Rinna after the "death" of Protodrive, with Mr. Belt wanting to have a means to fight beside the warrior he chooses as Drive.

When Drive initiates a Tire Exchange (タイヤ交換 Taiya Kōkan), Tridoron creates the Shift Tire (シフトタイヤ Shifuto Taiya) by first drawing its left front wheel in, then forming the Shift Tire, and lastly ejecting said Shift Tire by using its left wheel to push it out so that it can attach to Drive.

Similar to Kamen Rider Double and the RevolGarry with the HardBoilder, Drive's current form and Shift Car arsenal can affect Tridoron's armaments via Tire Enhancements (タイヤ増える Taiya Fueru), which are activated when the Shift Cars are installed into Tridoron's back panel, which allows Tridoron to use the Shift Tires for attacking purposes.

History

When Shocker altered the past using the History Modifying Machine, Shinnosuke, formerly a Shocker Rider having been freed of his brainwashing, drove Tridoron to victory in the Rider Grand Prix, with the help of allied Riders and the Ride Booster Set, beating Kamen Rider 3's TriCyclone car and other past brainwashed Kamen Riders in their Rider Machines. Reunited with the Ninningers during the final battle against Shocker, Drive was given a special Nin ShurikenIcon-crosswiki by Yoshitaka IgasakiIcon-crosswiki, transforming Tridoron into an OtomoNinIcon-crosswiki which combined with ShurikenjinIcon-crosswiki to become Shurikenjin Tridoron, destroying the Rider Robo. Super Hero Taisen GP: Kamen Rider 3 When Mr. Belt becomes evil and forces the Type Tridoron transformation, Shinnosuke managed to escape from the form by yanking Mr. Belt off and punching him, which caused Tridoron to be damaged. Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future

It was fixed sometime later and after the destruction of Gold Drive and Sigma Circular, it was locked beneath the Drive Pit alongside, Ride Chaser, Ride Macher and all of Drive's arsenals. Who Will You Entrust the Future to, My Friend?

Forms

Like Drive, Tridoron has three alternate modes called Types (タイプ Taipu) that it can transform into during battle.

Type Speed
KRDr-Tridoron Speed

Type Speed

  • Length: 4.9m
  • Weight: 1450kg
  • Hp: 3000ps (2206kw)
  • Maximum speed: 560km/h

Type Speed (タイプスピード Taipu Supīdo) is Tridoron's default sports car-based mode. This mode debuts in episode 1.

This mode is Tridoron's most balanced form. On the paved roads of the city, it can go the fastest of all the Types, making it suited for high-speed chases or getaways.

In combat, aside from Tire Enhancements, Tridoron can perform the Tridoron Shoot (トライドロンシュート Toraidoron Shūto) attack, where it fires lasers from the car's built-in cannons on the front.

In episode 19, Tridoron briefly changed into Type Technic to combat the Ride Crosser while in possession of Mashin Chaser by ejecting the cabin portion to strike it with the claws in order to forcibly disengage the combination.

Type Wild

  • Length: 4.9m
  • Weight: 1450kg
  • Hp: 3000ps (2206kw)
  • Maximum speed: 239km/h

Type Wild (タイプワイルド Taipu Wairudo) is Tridoron's dune buggy-based mode. This mode debuts in episode 6.

Just like Drive's transformation into Type Wild, Tridoron is much slower in this mode. But in exchange, it has much more power and maneuverability, bouncing around the battlefield with its buoyant wheels and ramming giant Roidmudes with ease.

In combat, aside from Tire Enhancements, Tridoron can perform the Tridoron Bomber (トライドロンボンバー Toraidoron Bonbā) attack, where its wheels enlarge in order to allow the buggy to run over an enemy.

Appearances: Drive Episodes 6, 8, Movie War Full Throttle, Drive 11, Super Hero Taisen GP, Drive 40

Type Technic
KRDr-Tridoron Technic

Type Technic

"Doron Tridoron: Type Technic!"
―Transformation announcement via Drive Driver[src]
  • Length: 4.3m
  • Weight: 1450kg
  • Hp: 3000ps (2206kw)
  • Maximum speed: 219km/h

Type Technic (タイプテクニック Taipu Tekunikku) is Tridoron's garbage truck-based mode. This mode debuts in episode 9.

This transformation is Tridoron's slowest mode. However, it is one of the most versatile like Drive's own Type Technic form, thanks to the claw-like manipulator arms it has, allowing it to directly interact with the surroundings. It is also able to travel up building sides.

In combat, aside from Tire Enhancements, Tridoron can perform the Tridoron Smash (トライドロンスマッシュ Toraidoron Sumasshu) attack, where its claws allow the truck to cut through enemies with ease.

Appearances: Drive Episodes 9, Movie War Full Throttle, Drive 11


Apart from its primary three modes, Tridoron can assume special modes via certain means that it can't normally use.

Booster Tridoron
KRDr-Booster Tridoron

Booster Tridoron

Booster Tridoron (ブースタートライドロン Būsutā Toraidoron) is a combo form of Tridoron and the Ride Booster Set. This mode debuts in Super Hero Taisen GPIcon-crosswiki before later appearing proper in the series' 27th episode.

In this mode, Tridoron has the Ride Booster Set attached to its back wheels while in Type Speed, granting it various different uses such as flight with Mach and Chaser riding on their respective Ride Boosters if needed. Booster Tridoron can also easily detach one of the Ride Boosters from itself for Mach or Chaser to utilize in aerial combat, though doing so will obviously severely impact its flight capabilities.

Though Type Speed by default, variants of Booster Tridoron according to the other Types are possible as demonstrated by the formation of a Type Wild Booster Tridoron during Drive and Mach's fight against the Tornado Roidmude.

Appearances: Super Hero Taisen GP, Kamen Rider 4: Episode 3, Drive Episodes 27, 28, 34, 40 (Type Wild), 43

Type Fruits
TridoronTypeFruit

Fruits Mode

When the Shift Fruits Car is inserted into Tridoron, it allows the Tridoron to become the Type Fruits (タイプフルーツ Taipu Furūtsu) and its wheels assume a sort of fruit shape that resemble orange slices called Type Fruits Bobber (タイプフルーツボバー Taipu Furūtsu Bobā) and give it flying capabilities. However, it is still primarily just Tridoron Type Speed, so Shinnosuke has to assume Type Speed in order for him to fit comfortably inside.

This mode is the first time someone is riding shotgun with Shinnosuke while he's in Rider form (in this case, Kamen Rider Gaim).

While in this mode, Tridoron uses a form of orange slices as weapons by reverting the wheels back to their normal shape and firing them like it would a Shift Tire. Mr. Belt dubs this maneuver the Fruits Tire Attack (フルーツタイヤアタック Furūtsu Taiya Atakku).

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

Type High Speed
SliverTridoron

Type High Speed

Type High Speed (タイプハイスピード Taipu Hai Supīdo) briefly appears when Rinna upgrades Tridoron to upgrade Shift Speed into Shift High Speed. However, it was later revealed that this mode, along with Drive's own Type High Speed form, was just a redecoration and nothing more.

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

OtomoNin Tridoron
Tridoron (Robot)

OtomoNin Tridoron

Tridoron becomes a humanoid mecha known as an OtomoNin (オトモ忍 lit. "Companion Ninja") through the use of the Ninningers' Tridoron ShurikenIcon-crosswiki. Incidentally, OtomoNin Tridoron resembles Drive Type Speed from the neckdown.

This form is exclusive to Super Hero Taisen GP: Kamen Rider 3Icon-crosswiki.

Shurikenjin Tridoron
When Cars Meets Ninjas

Shurikenjin Tridoron

OtomoNin Tridoron combines with ShurikenjinIcon-crosswiki to become Shurikenjin Tridoron (シュリケンジントライドロン Shurikenjin Toraidoron, lit. "Throwing Star God Tridoron").

In a similar vein to Super Hero Taisen ZIcon-crosswiki when Kamen Rider Wizard was in KyoryuzinIcon-crosswiki, Drive has a special seat for himself while inside Shurikenjin, using the Handle-Ken to help control the mech.

Much like the original Shurikenjin, Shurikenjin Tridoron's main arsenal are the Drago Sword (ドラゴソード Dorago Sōdo) and Drago Shield (ドラゴシールド Dorago Shīrudo).

Shurikenjin Tridoron's finisher is Shurikenjin Tridoron Finish (シュリケンジン・トライドロンフィニッシュ Shurikenjin Toraidoron Finisshu)

This form is exclusive to Super Hero Taisen GP: Kamen Rider 3Icon-crosswiki.


After the development of Shift Tridoron and the repurposing of its original design, Drive can assume Type Tridoron, which requires said car to become parts of his form's armor. 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 Kamen Rider Mach and his Signal Exchanges, none of Type Tridoron's stats change when Drive performs a Tire Blending.

This version of Type Tridoron is briefly seen during Drive's transformation.

Type Tridoron

Type Tridoron

"Drive: Type Tridoron! (Dramatic rock guitar solo)"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 198.5 cm.
  • Weight: 108.0 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 18.0t
  • Kicking power: 31.0t
  • Maximum jump height: 45.0m
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 0.643 sec.

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 bears 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.

KRDr-Shift Tridoron

Tridoron Shift Car

Shift Tridoron (シフトトライドロン Shifuto Toraidoron, Based on the Tridoron): Originally created for use in the Trailer-Hou as an emergency finishing move to fire Tridoron as a bullet fueled by the energy of all of the other Shift Cars, Shift Tridoron was modified shortly after its completion to serve as a jump-starter for the comatose Shinnosuke and Mr. Belt. In the process, it gained the unexpected ability to allow Drive to transform into Type Tridoron, something no one, not even Mr. Belt could envision. Shift Tridoron's special ability is enabling Drive to use the Tire Blending, which allows him to combine three Tire Exchange Shift Cars with a similar theme into a new Shift Tire that simultaneously utilizes each of their individual powers. When the button marked "DRIVE" is pressed, it activates Shift Tridoron and announces "Fire All Engine" (ファイヤーオールエンジン Faiyā Ōru Enjin). Shinnosuke must believe in his devotion to protect others in order to use Type Tridoron. The DX toy version was accidentally released into the public eye following its inclusion into a Toei Company video.

Tridoron Shuriken

Tridoron Shuriken

Tridoron Shuriken (トライドロンシュリケン Toraidoron Shuriken): Transforms Tridoron into an OtomoNinIcon-crosswiki, which can also combine with ShurikenjinIcon-crosswiki to form Shurikenjin Tridoron. This Shuriken is marked with the kanji for "car" ( Kuruma). Used exclusively in Super Hero Taisen GP: Kamen Rider 3Icon-crosswiki, where it is given to Shinnosuke by Yoshitaka IgasakiIcon-crosswiki via the Midnight Shadow Shift Car while watching Shurikenjin fight Rider Robo. This Nin Shuriken more than likely faded out of existence after the timeline was restored.


Drive can utilize Tridoron for one of two Full Throttle finishers.

SpeeDrop (スピードロップ Supīdoroppu) is Drive Type Speed and its corresponding Tire Exchange modes' Rider Kick finisher, where Tridoron forming a whirlwind around the enemy while Drive is boosted forward by energy-projected spinning tires, allowing him to rebound off his car so that he can unleash a rapid barrage of kicks to finish off the enemy. This finisher has two variations for Max Flare (where enhanced fiery strikes make up for a speed decrease) and Midnight Shadow (which utilizes it's cloning abilities to batter an opponent even harder), as well as one version for Type Speed: Drive focuses power into his right leg, making it glow red as he slams into the enemy with a flying kick while said opponent is trapped in Tridoron Type Technic's claws.

Uses: Drive Episodes 1, Movie War Full Throttle, Drive 11, Super Hero Taisen GP, Kamen Rider 4: Episode 2, Drive 25, 45

JustiSmash (ジャスティスマッシュ Jasutisumasshu) is Drive Type Speed Hunter's Rider Punch finisher, where after trapping the enemy in the Justice Cage'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.

Uses: Drive Episode 2





Behind the scenes

Conception

Keeping with the theme of Kamen Rider meets Knight Rider concept in Kamen Rider Drive, Tridoron is also a reference to K.I.T.T..

Notes

  • Tridoron's name is a clear homage to Ridoron, the car driven by Kohtaro Minami in Kamen Rider Black RX.
    • Tridoron's ability to change modes to match Drive's form could also be an homage to Acrobatter, Kohtaro Minami's motorcycle in Kamen Rider Black RX.
    • The name has another meaning in the context of the series, as "Tri" is the prefix for three, and "Doron" is a Japanese sound effect for transforming, and Tridoron can transform between three modes.
      • Similarly, by using Type Tridoron's Tire Blending ability, he can combine/transform the abilities of a set of three Tire Exchange Shift Cars into a new Shift Tire.
  • Similar to the DenLiner, Tridoron changes modes based on its Rider's current form. However, while DenLiner simply attaches different trains to itself, Tridoron completely changes its appearance and abilities.
    • Tridoron is also the second Rider Machine to be able to combine with a Super Sentai MechaIcon-crosswiki after the DenLiner and ToQ-OhIcon-crosswiki.
      • It is also the first time a Rider Machine has a form exclusive to its combination.
  • Tridoron is based off of the 1992 Honda NSX.
  • Tridoron's appearance after being installed with the Shift Fruits Car is a reference to DeLorean time machine from the Back to the Future movie trilogy.
  • Tridoron is the first OtomoNin not to have the word Maru (マル lit. "Circle") placed at the end of the name.
  • Tridoron's speedometer maxes out at 200km/h, despite being capable of going way beyond it. Shocker's data banks say that Tridoron's max speed is 560km/h
  • Type Dead Heat and Type Tridoron are Drive's only in-series forms that he has not driven in Tridoron with, though both are justified as Shinnosuke has a limited amount of time before going berserk in the former, while the car itself becomes armor for Drive when he transforms into the latter.
  • Type Tridoron's "Tire Blending" ability allows Drive to fuse three Shift Tires together with his Type Tridoron Tire for a total of four tires, which is the amount of wheels Tridoron has to drive on the road.
  • Drive being able to combine with Tridoron to become Type Tridoron is similar to Kyoryu Red CarnivalIcon-crosswiki from Zyuden Sentai KyoryugerIcon-crosswiki, where Kyoryu Red combines with Gabutyra as MinityraIcon-crosswiki.
  • Booster Tridoron Type Wild's ability to shoot whirlwinds is similar to Gun Loader's Bringer Fan attack from Ultraman Mebius.
  • Out of the core three Shift Cars (Max Flare, Midnight Shadow and Funky Spike), Spike is the only one to not be used in a SpeeDrop Full Throttle.
