I understand. But I won't apologize for something someone doesn't like about myself. If it weren't for my enemy, this world would be in an extreme dictatorship with no one strong enough to win against them. The world population would be slaves, some cyborgs themselves, some, possibly even worse. Humanity would have no hope, no determination, no strength, no faith, no spirit, no confidence - no nothing. We would be in our worst depression mankind would have ever faced... but, that's why I came. „

I am Takeshi Hongo. I am Kamen Rider. We are one. „ 

— Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider

In an alternate reality, Takeshi Hongo (本郷猛, Hongō takeshi), and later, Kamen Rider (仮面ライダー, Kamen raidā) is originally an innocent human being who gets captured by the mysterious, villainous organization known as Shocker and turns into a cyborg, meant to be their ultimate weapon, but instead becomes their enemy and the protector of humanity.

Front Information

Initially a man who attends college for 4 years to obtain his PhD to become a doctor, Takeshi Hongo's amazing skills are secretly looked upon by an evil organization known as Shocker. Shocker captures him and modifies him into a cyborg, which is Shocker's first ever cyborg. However, Hongo's inner willpower and heroic heart prevents him from changing, allowing him to control himself entirely and act upon his own. He uses this to fight Shocker for a couple of months, and save any humans lives he is capable of saving. He takes up the role of Kamen Rider, his masked disguise or superhero name, in which he chooses this name because he believes he is a masked hero who fights in the darkness. He officially takes the role of Kamen Rider when he obtains his motorcycle, and sets this name as a lineage to anyone who desires to take it so that his title can be carried on when Shocker is defeated, and more evil arises.


Born on August 15th, 1948, Takeshi Hongo is a young man born with extraordinary abilities. He has an IQ of 195, can adopt any form of combat (as he mastered martial arts in a rather fast time), and has an amazing physical prowess.

When he was a child and throughout his early teenage years, Takeshi lost both of his parents at different times. His father was murdered, while his mother died in a car crash. This left him to be found and adopted by a young man known as Tobei Tachibana, who becomes his life partner.



Initially, Takeshi Hongo is a timid and shy man, but is unaware of his extraordinary abilities that he possessed and developed at birth. He usually impressed everyone around him, which made him a very likable person and caused him to be much more social through his high school years. He became very well known when he went to college, expressing his abilities more. In this time he is a sweet, kind, and compassionate man who isn't afraid to show some competition. He knows of his abilities, but is surprisingly not cocky about them at all. Inside him lies a heroic and noble heart willing to help with anyone who is in need. He loved to help with the sickly.

When he initially becomes Kamen Rider, Takeshi Hongo is very afraid and scared, and has no clue as to what he is. He learns that he is a cyborg and has an uncontrollable urge to hurt anything he sees. This causes his heroic side to suspend, but it shows that he is clearly trying to gain control. He later does succeed in this.

When he does succeed, Takeshi Hongo is more curious that afraid. He learns that he has cybernetic implants inside him and is in a highly technologically advanced armored suit. As the story progresses, Takeshi Hongo goes through some life questioning about his purpose after he is freed, and later goes into intense self loathing. This unfortunately causes Takeshi to leave his old life completely, forget about those he met and had relationships with, and clearly had nobody who he truly loved, seeing his parents were the only one he had. He had to start a completely new chapter.

However, he soon learns and realizes that he must take this purpose. At this point, Takeshi Hongo's character darkens, and he is no longer who he used to be. When not disguised, he is a man who speaks very few words, and wants others to stay away from him as possible. He consistently thinks about his struggle against Shocker and wants to destroy them. This causes him to be extremely introverted and no longer sociable.

When transformed as Kamen Rider, his heroic side is definitely portrayed out more. He expresses his concern for the hurt and tries to save whoever he can, help those in need, and get whoever is in danger out of the scene. He is intensely focused on taking out any threat he sees, and punish them for hurting the innocent.

Eventually Takeshi does develop, while still keeping his dark character, when not transformed he portrays a very optimistic side to his personality to the point where it becomes his philosophy. He becomes more sociable and more extroverted, and when he doesn't have to worry about Shocker, he goes to live a normal human life for the time being. Going back to his old days, he begins to help with the disorded/disabled and sickly, and generally help anyone who needs help.

Takeshi Hongo is extremely determined and focused on Shocker, and will try his absolute hardest to destroy them and keep them away from innocent lives.


Takeshi Hongo is Japanese-American. He stands at 5'11. He has a light black beard and has black sharp hair that stretches forwards. He has dark brown eyes.

For his clothing, he almost always appears in a deep black motorcycle jacket with hardly visible highlights that are dark green. He wears deep black jeans as well, and wears black shoes. He wears a silver necklace around his neck with a Shocker pendant. He also wears deep black leather gloves on both of his hands. He wears a white shirt under his motorcycle jacket.

In his secondary attire, he can appear in a suit.


Takeshi's Father

Takeshi's father was Takeshi Hongo's biggest role model, and a mentor figure. Both of them loved each other very much and treated each other well. He always took on his father's own philosophy and tried to replicate the actions and feelings that he had in himself. He deeply loved him and regrets his demise after a heated argument they had on Takeshi's future. He tries to live up to his father's name.

Takeshi's Mother

Takeshi's mother acted as a peace figure to Takeshi. In times of rough and difficult experiences, Takeshi would look and go to his mother, as she signified everything was going to alright, and that he should keep going. Takeshi's mother was Takeshi's source of inner strength, to keep going when the odds were stacked against him. When she died in a car accident, it equally devastated Takeshi as it did with his father's death.

Tobei Tachibana

Tobei Tachibana becomes Takeshi's life partner. He was discovered by him when Takeshi was 15, as Tobei was 23 at this time. He eventually also becomes a singular parental figure altogether when he had no parents. Both of them truly feel for each other with their same experiences, and always try to protect each other's backs.
