BiographyEdit

Many people live in peace and harmony in the fictional city of Futo ("Windy City"), an ecologically-minded and wind-powered city. However, the Sonozaki Family sell mysterious devices resembling USB flash drives called Gaia Memories to criminals and other interested parties, who use them to become monsters called Dopants, committing crimes with the police force powerless to stop them. To make matters worse, the Gaia Memories carry a dangerous toxin that cause their users to go insane to the point where they could die from using the devices unrestrained. After the death of his boss, the self-proclaimed hardboiled (actually half-boiled) detective Shotaro Hidari (the current head of Narumi's Hard Boiled Detective Agency, after the death of his mentor Sokichi Narumi, the Kamen Rider Skull) works with the mysterious Philip (whose real name Raito Sonozaki, the son of Ryuubee Sonozaki who thought to be death, but revealed becomes one with the true Gaia Memory database), who possesses the true Gaia Memory, to investigate crimes which involve Dopants. Using their own Gaia Memories, Shotaro and Philip use the Double Driver belts to transform and combine into Kamen Rider Double to fight the Dopant menace and keep Futo safe. While joined in their fight by investigator Ryu Terui, who transforms into Kamen Rider Accel, the mystery of Philip's past, his relation to the Sonozaki Family, and their Museum organization are revealed.

Strenghts/Pros and Weaknesses/ConsEdit

Strenghts/ProsEdit

  • Joker Half-Changes and CycloneJoker Xtreme Gold are suitable as Air Combo fighter
  • LunaJoker's Joker Strange, LunaMetal's Metal Illusion, Trigger Half-Changes, and CycloneJoker Xtreme's (Bicker Finallusion) and (Prism Break) are suitable against long-ranges
  • Metal Half-Changes:
    • Ground  attacks are ood for close and mid-range combos
    • HeatMetal's Metal Branding can be useful against close range while not charged too long
    • LunaMetal's Metal Illusion can be useful against close and mid ranges before the shot
  • Cyclone Half-Changes related special moves are very powerful to use

Weaknesses/ConsEdit

  • Half-Changes act as a special moves instead of normal form change. This results changing to half forms only losses frame traps, as well as a quick recovered during juggle (particularly against bosses), including only revert back to default half-change form (CycloneJoker) on using form change function's
    • Which means there isn't any special moves like Maximum Drive of using Right-Half or using a synthetic Gaia Memory
  • Any form's special moves, except CycloneJoker Xtreme Gold's are slow on Rider Cancelling and vulnerable against incoming and surrounding attacks
  • LunaMetal's Metal Illusion shots, while nor fully charging is not good against close-range
  • Trigger Half-Changes:
    • -String and Air attacks cannot knocks the bosses
    • The -String property changes after using Half-Changes special moves must be learned carefully
    • LunaTrigger's multi damage can be unpreditable
    • There are not holding properties before the shot
  • CycloneJoker Xtreme's special cancels from -String combos losts frame traps, and let enemies like bosses quickly recovered during juggles
