I didn’t realize that the American Masked Rider show included the original Kamen Riders in one of its episodes.

I also didn’t realize it completely fucked up their names.

the-last-alicorn  asked:

Have you ever seen a toku hero/sentai team who's design you REALLY wanted to like, but one minor detail kept you from doing so? Alternatively, are there any toku hero/Sentai team suits that you feel are overrated?

Oh heck yes!  Best example of that for me is Kamen Rider Black RX’s base form!

I love the original Black’s suit.  It’s almost perfect and this one would be a massive improvement on perfection were it not for that high collar!  It ruins the look for me and makes it look like he has no neck.  Plus, it must have been a pain in the ass for the poor suit actor to try and move his head from side to side in that.

Over on the Super Sentai side of things we have the heroes of Dai Sentai Goggle-V from 1982.

I like just about everything about their costumes but I HATE Red’s helmet.  The visor seems too large and is separated into two parts down middle.  Plus, the way it slants down from the center both on the top and the bottom makes him look kind of sad or upset all the time.  It is otherwise a great costume but Red’s helmet just ruins it for me.

the-last-alicorn  asked:

Black Satan has got to be the dumbest organization in the history of Kamen Rider. Seriously, Stronger went up to them and was like, "Turn my into a cyborg, I TOTALLY won't betray you!" And they were like, "Okie dokie." "Aha! As it turns out, I planned to betray you the entire time!" Bunch a idiots. At least have a SCREENING PROCESS.

I think that’s generally an issue with evil organizations in Kamen Rider, they have really lax standards.  I pointed it out in my panel this weekend that so many of them are all gung ho about the transforming people into cyborg monstrosities but not so big on making sure they are loyal first.

Look at Shocker, they turned Takeshi Hongo into a cyborg to work for them but they left the brainwashing till last?  Who decided giving someone super powers BEFORE you wipe their mind and make them loyal was a good thing?

At least Kamen Rider 2 and Kamen Rider V3 were already loyal to the cause of Justice BEFORE they were converted (at least on TV).

No one seems to learn though because Neo Shocker pulls the same stupid stunt in Kamen Rider (1979) a.k.a. Skyrider.  You’d think General Monster would have learned -something- from the likes of Shocker, Gel Shocker and Black Satan. 

Heck, he didn’t even learn not to look down on a Rider.  

Evil repeats the same mistakes once we get to the Kamen Rider ZX special as Badam turns Ryo Murasame into a cyborg.  At least he WAS loyal for a while, until he got his memories back and turned on them.

Oops.

I would have given Golgom some slack at one time because I thought they existed in a separate universe from their villainous predecessors but nope, because Kamen Rider Black RX had the other Showa Riders show up, it established that both of the Black series occurred on the same Earth.

At least they got it right with Shadow Moon.

So I don’t blame Black Satan for being incautious with their recruitment efforts.  They are just following in the grand, mad tradition of Showa Kamen Rider villains.  They keep repeating the same mistakes, expecting a different outcome (notice they keep making Spider and Bat monsters) which is the very definition of madness.

At least by the time the Heisei series started, most of the bad guys learned their lesson not to create enemies capable of defeating them that they couldn’t control.

Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I’m not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I’m not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either. Hell, I’m not even talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano’o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu.Spoiler I’m also not talking about Kono Yo no Kyūseishu Futarime no Rikudō Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan (which is capable of Enton Amaterasu, Izanagi, Izanami and the Tsyukuyomi Genjutsu), his two original Rinnegan (which grant him Chikushōdō, Shuradō, Tendō, Ningendō, Jigokudō, Gakidō, Gedō, Banshō Ten’in, Chibaku Tensei, Shinra Tensei, Tengai Shinsei and Banbutsu Sōzō) and a third Tomoe Rinnegan on his forehead, capable of using Katon, Fūton, Raiton, Doton, Suiton, Mokuton, Ranton, Inton, Yōton and even Onmyōton Jutsu, equipped with his Gunbai(capable of using Uchihagaeshi) and a Shakujō because he is a master in kenjutsu and taijutsu, a perfect Susano’o (that can use Yasaka no Magatama ), control of both the Juubi and the Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA and face implanted on his chest, his four Rinbo Hengoku Clones guarding him and nine Gudōdama floating behind him AFTER he absorbed Senjutsu from the First Hokage, entered Rikudō Senjutsu Mode, cast Mugen Tsukuyomi on everybody and used Shin: Jukai Kōtan so he can use their Chakra while they are under Genjutsu. I’m definitely NOT Talking about sagemode sage of the six paths Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Super Saiyan 4 Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Rinnegan, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, and Geass doujutsus, equipped with Shining Trapezohedron while casting Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as his Susanoo, controlling the Gold Experience Requiem stand, having become the original vampire after Alucard, able to tap into the speedforce, wearing the Kamen Rider Black RX suit and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu and having eaten Popeye’s spinach. I’m talking about sagemode sage of the six paths Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Legendary Super Saiyan 4 Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Rinnegan, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, and Geass doujutsus, equipped with his Shining Trapezohedron while casting Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as his Susanoo, controlling the Gold Experience Requiem stand, having become the original vampire after having absorbed Alucard as well as a God Hand, able to tap into the speedforce, wearing the Kamen Rider Black RX suit, with Kryptonian DNA implanted in him and having eaten Popeye’s spinach while possessing quantum powers like Dr. Manhattan and having mastered Hokuto Shinken.
