"Electro-Wave Human Tackle!"
―Tackle's roll call[src]

Yuriko Misaki (岬 ユリ子 Misaki Yuriko) is the Electro-Wave Human Tackle (電波人間タックル Denpa Ningen Takkuru, literally "Electromagnetic Wave Human Tackle"). She was portrayed by the late Kyoko Okada in Kamen Rider Stronger, and by Alice Hirose in Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter. Despite sharing many characteristics with the series' titular heroes, she was never officially branded a "Kamen Rider", a fact which was elaborated upon in the Kamen Rider Spirits manga.

A grief-stricken Shigeru Jo carries Yuriko's body

Yuriko Misaki (岬 ユリコ Misaki Yuriko) was a newly finished cyborg ready to serve the evil Black Satan organization but she was still inactive. Everything changed as her soon-to-be best friend Shigeru Jo entered the room she was staying in trying to find a way out of Black Satan`s secret lair, found her on an operating table and awakens her. After some talk he convinced her to come with him and together with a good friend to many Kamen Riders, Tōbei Tachibana they fought the Black Satan as Kamen Rider Stronger and the Electro-Wave Human Tackle for quite some time. Over time she fell in love with him. But sadly Yuriko gave her life to defeat the evil Doctor Kate in order to save Shigeru from being poisoned. This would forever haunt him and pushed him to undergo surgery in order attain the even more powerful (and dangerous) Charge Up form.

Kamen Rider Spirits

"She fought more than enough. She'll never be called a Kamen Rider! She's now a normal human!"
Shigeru Jo to the Badan Cyborg 13's Leader[src]

In Kamen Rider Spirits, Shigeru experiences flashbacks about Yuriko when he stumbles upon her shrine while escaping from the ZX Army. He recalls why she was never labeled a "Kamen Rider": she had desired to live a normal life, and through her sacrifice, she had gained her humanity.

Kamen Rider Decade

Net movies

In the net movie spin-offs of the Kamen Rider Decade movie, Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, they have a different take on Shigeru`s feelings toward Yukiro being a Kamen Rider or not in the first webisode, Petition! Kamen Rider Tackle!!. Here, he meets with Tsukasa Kadoya and the other members of the Hikari Photo Studio, wanting to petition Toei to recognize Tackle as a Kamen Rider and asking for their support. When the group gets to Toei's offices, however, they're surprised to find that Tackle is herself the recruiting director who decides which characters are Riders and which aren't.

World of Stronger

The original Yuriko Misaki meets Tsukasa/Decade and the Hikari Studio crew when they travel to the World of Stronger in the SIC Hero Saga Kamen Rider Decade: World of Stronger.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Yuriko Misaki was portrayed by the late Kyōko Okada (岡田 京子 Okada Kyōko). In Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter she was portrayed by Alice Hirose. In Super Hero Taisen Otsu, she was portrayed by Arisa Komiya (小宮 有紗 Komiya Arisa), who is better known as Yellow Buster Yoko UsamiIcon-crosswiki from Tokumei Sentai Go-BustersIcon-crosswiki.

Notes

  • If one were to count her as a Kamen Rider, then she is the first Rider that was killed and not revived.
    • While Tackle's death is a defining moment for Kamen Rider Stronger as a series, according to production notes from Toru Hirayama, there were concept plans to revive her and possibly give her an upgrade form. This had to be scrapped in order to accommodate for the show's shorter 39 episode run. [1]
  • Shotaro Ishinomori and Kamen Rider co-creator Toru Hirayama conceived the idea of Tackle after receiving fan letters from young girls who said they wanted a hero to pretend to be when playing Kamen Rider with other boys.[2]
  • The second episode provides an easily overlooked explanation for why Tackle does not go by the title of Kamen Rider: Yuriko herself chose to name her hero persona Denpa Ningen Tackle, after Shigeru named his Kamen Rider Stronger. Her role in Petition! Kamen Rider Tackle!! might be an intentional reference to this.
  • In the Kamen Rider Official Data Files, Yuriko is classified as a Kamen Rider.
  • The line in Kamen Rider Spirits about why Yuriko is never called a Kamen Rider has been misinterpreted by some fans as sexist. The meaning behind it is that a Kamen Rider's life is one of endless battle and sacrificing one's happiness to protect others. Shigeru's feelings convey that she did not deserve such a cruel fate and that her sacrifice to protect him was more than enough to deem her a hero in his eyes.

  • In SIC Hero Saga, she has a Perfecter to protect her head and her face, giving her helmet a more Rider-like appearance.
