Kamen Rider Gaim is a playable character, debuted in Kamen Rider: Battride War II. He is one of the three main protagonists of the second game.

Biography Edit

Originally part of a dancing crew known as the Beat Riders, Kouta aims to learn how to become an adult. He met Kaito since high school, while accidentally bumped into him and apologize, as Kouta had other things to do for his sister. Following the disappearance (or the Inves mutation) of his friend, Yuya, Kouta and Mai investigate the area he told to them to meet up. Upon discovering a strange belt known as the "Sengoku Driver" in Helheim, which Yuya dropped it after he ate some Helheim fruit (origins of the Lockseed device) that turns him into an Inves and the power it gives Kouta, as he believes it to be the key to his journey to become an adult. He didn't realize that the different Inves he and Mai encounter at the forest was Yuya, whom Gaim unknowingly kills him until he finds out, breaking his fighting spirit but being advice by Sagara to move on as what Yuya promised for in hopes of humanity.

Given the Kachidoki Lockseed to achieve that goal, Kouta tells Mai everything he knows to Mitsuzane's displeasure while managing to win Takatora over with a way they can save the world without sacrificing human lives. At this point, Kouta finally gets a job at Drupers, but only after his sister is downsized and he must find some form of work. During the Lover Lord Dēmushu's invasion into Zawame, he is critically injured by the Yggdrasill Corporation force's sudden attacks on him, resulting in Dēmushu landing a fatal blow on Gaim, until Baron rushes to his aid and retreat to Team Gaim's place safely. Gravely wounded, Kouta has another encounter with Sagara who offers him the Kiwami Lockseed to help him obtain the Forbidden Fruit to save his world. Though warned that he would have to kill everyone else who is after the Forbidden Fruit and would eventually become an Over Lord himself, Kouta accepts the Kiwami Lockseed. As he uses the Lockseed, Kouta unknowingly becomes more like the Over Lords, even gaining the ability to use the plants to his advantage after battling Redue and Roshuo. However, Mitsuzane plans to fight him with his new Ryugen Yomi transformation, and during the fight, Kouta intentionally lets his guard down, taking a seemingly fatal blow from Ryugen Yomi, all in an attempt to get his friend back to normal. Kouta's wounded body is later found by Chucky and Peko and brought back to the garage for treatment. In his injured state, Mai visits Kouta spiritually and warns him about Kaito wanting to use the Forbidden Fruit to change the future. While trying to learn if Redyue and Roshuo's words about him becoming an Over Lord after obtaining the Kiwami Lockseed are true, Kouta starts to test it out by eating the Helheim's fruit. When it has no effect on him at all, he realizes that they were right in their warnings. After killing Kaito, Kouta receives the Golden Fruit and evolves into the blonde-haired Man of the Beginning. Not wanting to destroy the current world nor rule it as it is, he uses his power to open a Crack to send all of the Inves and Helheim Forest onto another barren world at the far end of the universe, where he and Mai will create new life instead. Seven months later when Kogane returns as Armored Rider Jam, possessing the form of a teenage girl and beating Mitsuzane close to death, Kouta returns to Earth to help Mitsuzane destroy the Locust Monster, and splits Kogane from its host, so both Gaim and Ryugen can finish it off for good. After the last fight with Kogane, Kouta leaves Earth once more, saying goodbye to both Mitsuzane and the spirit of Kaito who is lingering behind at the relocated sacred tree. Shocked, he was killed by Megahex only he was revived.
