Kamen Rider Fourze (仮面ライダーフォーゼ Kamen Raidā Fōze) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in the Kamen Rider Series, written by Kazuki Nakashima. Transfer student Gentaro Kisaragi transforms into the titular hero Kamen Rider Fourze to battle the constellation-themed monsters called Zodiarts.
The main setting of the series is the fictional Amanogawa High School (天ノ川学園高校 Amanogawa Gakuen Kōkō, AGHS), the school where the main characters attend along with many unique characters.
The Kamen Rider Club (仮面ライダー部 Kamen Raidā Bu) is a club that Gentaro Kisaragi forms to gain new friends at Amanogawa High School, named after Fourze’s predecessors: the various Kamen Riders. The club’s members assist Kamen Rider Fourze in his battles against the Zodiarts. In addition, they investigate the urban legends that surround the existence of the past Kamen Riders. The Kamen Rider Club’s headquarters are the remains of the Rabbit Hatch (ラビットハッチ Rabitto Hatchi) lunar base owned by the Outer Space Technology Organization (外宇宙技術開発機構 Gai Uchū Gijutsu Kaihatsu Kikō, OSTO) which developed the Kamen Rider Fourze technology and the Zodiarts Switches. The Rabbit Hatch can be accessed by a Cosmic Energy (コズミックエナジー Kozumikku Enajī) powered portal found in a locker in an abandoned part of the AGHS campus. In episode 11, the locker that connects the Rabbit Hatch is removed from the abandoned club room, leaving Kengo stranded on the Moon, and it is later seemingly destroyed by the Pyxis Zodiarts. However, it is successfully recovered by Tomoko after she discovers that Mr. Ohsugi took the real locker for himself after believing Yuki’s lie about it being Ms. Sonoda’s locker while she was a student. They proceed to permanently secure the locker in place with screws to prevent it from ever being easily moved away again. Tomoko even sets up various magical charms around the locker for additional “protection.” At the end of the series, the Rabbit Hatch is destroyed in an attack by the Leo Zodiarts and Sagittarius Nova. After Sagittarius Nova’s defeat, the Kamen Rider Club reinvents itself in the series epilogue as the Earth-based Space Kamen Rider Club.
The television series’ producer Hideaki Tsukuda initially planned on including the various past Kamen Riders into the series to commemorate the Kamen Rider Series’ 40th anniversary. However, with Kamen Rider Decade having aired recently, this idea was changed into the appreciation of the previous Kamen Riders in their form as urban legends in Japan.
Gentaro Kisaragi (如月 弦太朗 Kisaragi Gentarō) is a second-year, later third-year, student at Amanogawa High School, who has a bad-boy image but seeks to make friends with those he meets at the school by forming the Kamen Rider Club. When he meets Kengo Utahoshi, it starts the chain of events leading to him becoming Kamen Rider Fourze (仮面ライダーフォーゼ Kamen Raidā Fōze).
Gentaro Kisaragi is portrayed by Sota Fukushi (福士 蒼汰 Fukushi Sōta). As a child, Gentaro is portrayed by Tatsuki Ishikawa (石川 樹 Ishikawa Tatsuki).
Kengo Utahoshi (歌星 賢吾 Utahoshi Kengo) is a second-year and Gentaro’s partner who is also very level-headed and intelligent. However, he has a strange medical condition that causes sharp pains whenever he overexerts himself. A year prior to the series’ start, Kengo receives an anonymous letter along with an Astroswitch. The portal connecting to the Rabbit Hatch lunar base, which is all that remains of the OSTO complex on the moon, is opened in a locker in an abandoned club activity room when Kengo just so happens to throw the activated Switch inside. Inside the base, he discovers existence of the Zodiarts and Astroswitches, motivating him to follow through with his father’s plans to fight the menace that is to come. Though he originally intends to fight the Zodiarts on his own, his physique is so weak that even manning the Powerdizer exo-suit for extended periods is an extremely difficult task for him. He is forced to give Gentaro the means to become Kamen Rider Fourze and aid the Kamen Rider by providing him with his arsenal as well as acting as Gentaro’s tactician. However, Kengo does not acknowledge the existence of the Kamen Rider Club and refuses to be a member of the club. He later changes his mind when he is trapped on the moon due to the mistaken actions of Mr. Ohsugi, and becomes Gentaro’s friend and an official member of the club. Though Gentaro’s antics still irk him somewhat, he is later seen to be more willing to put up with Gentaro’s seemingly stupid plans as he proceeds to create more Astro Switches for him to use.
In his third year, having finished the Cosmic Switch, Kengo learns that Tachibana is the one who gave him the Gate Switch as he begins to learn more of his father from Emoto and Gamou during his trip to Kyoto. Eventually, Kengo learns that Emoto is both the Virgo Zodiarts and Tachibana as he reveals to the boy the full story behind his father’s death and that the Horoscopes must be stopped from having all twelve switches. During the incident with the Gemini Zodiarts that followed, Gamou noticed a power emitting from Kengo. From the contents of Emoto’s flash drive, Kengo learns of his true nature as the Core Child (コアチャイルド Koa Chairudo), a physical construct made of Cosmic Energy from within the Core Switch which the Presenters sent to OSTO to prove humanity’s worth to contact them. However, only his adopted father Rokuro Utahoshi knew the truth with Kuniteru Emoto, who regretted his role, bringing Kengo to Earth. He uses this newfound knowledge to awaken his powers to negate the 12 Horoscopes Switches, thwarting Gamou’s plan to seek the Presenter. However, becoming emotionless to make his next action less painful as he can now use the Fourze Driver, Kengo reveals his true nature to his friends in the Kamen Rider Club that he must leave Earth to present what he have learned to the Presenters’ home world. However, Gentaro sees through Kengo’s facade and convinces him that he is still a person while promising him that they would meet again. Unfortunately, refusing to left him leave the Milky Way, Kengo’s departure is interfered by Gamou assuming his Sagittarius Nova form to knock the youth down and destroy the Core Switch, causing Kengo’s body to dissolve into particles of light. However, on the verge of death, Gamou uses the Aquarius Switch’s power to repair the Core Switch and bring Kengo back to life.

Yuki Jojima (城島 ユウキ Jōjima Yūki) is a second-year student and is Gentaro’s childhood friend with a bright and cheerful personality who cares deeply for her friends. As a child, Yuki heard a voice from the stars which influenced her with the desire to become an astronaut. Since then, Yuki became what she refers to as a “space otaku”, called a “geek” by everyone else, with her dream motivating her reasons for attending Amanogawa High and occasionally going to the JAXA building after school. She is a friend of Kengo’s, meeting him on the day he found the Rabbit Hatch out of her interest to know his father better, and has since supported him in his activities in preparation for the Zodiarts’ appearance. She plays a role in Gentaro becoming Fourze and allows Kengo to let Gentaro help them, becoming one of the founding members of the Kamen Rider Club.
During her third-year, Yuki became the Kamen Rider Club’s new president after Miu graduated and is capable of leading the club with her ingenuity though Miu’s return as the club’s chairwoman makes Yuki a figurehead leader. Yuki also has a plushy satellite toy she affectionately calls “Hayabusa”, which seems have a different facial expressions depending on the situation. During the incident with the Gemini Zodiarts, an embodiment of her darkness who ruins her life, Yuki finds herself ceasing to be before Gentaro saves her.

Miu Kazashiro (風城 美羽 Kazashiro Miu) is a cocky third-year, later graduate, student who comes from an upper-class family. She is also the head cheerleader and has been elected the “Queen of the School” (学園の女王 Gakuen no Joō) for having won the yearly Queen Festival (クイーンフェス Kuīn Fesu) two years in a row putting a lot of effort and hard work into getting where she is now, and has a large number of fans. Among her philosophies as queen, Miu believes that she needs to know everything that occurs within the school grounds. Though she is well loved by many in school, Miu has a sense of superiority over the student body and sees those who are infatuated with her to be nothing but leeches, as to her, they only leech onto her for their own failure to shine. She takes an immediate dislike to Gentaro and calls him trash when she first meets him. This mentality is later used against her by her sidekick Tamae Sakuma during this year’s Queen Festival, as Tamae had secretly recorded Miu destroying her adoring public’s gifts and have the video played in front of the entire student body. Humbled, and with Gentaro’s help, Miu is reminded of her passion and returns to competing in the Festival despite the odds against her. Soon after, she accepts Gentaro’s hand in friendship and manages to win the Queen Festival yet again and keep her title, as well as the love of the student body in general with a powerful speech about working hard to shine with one’s own power. Soon after, as her way to let Gentaro off the hook on the bet they made prior to the contest, Miu has him bring her to the Rabbit Hatch. Miu is made a member of the Kamen Rider Club, much to Yuki’s chagrin when Miu announces that she is the club president. The position fits her well as she is a born leader and capable of being level-headed under crisis, even more so than Kengo himself, shown where she is capable of keeping cool and speak confidently even when a Zodiarts is terrorizing the place around her, and when she stops Yuki from revealing details about their club to save Kengo when he got trapped on the moon, never forgetting that their primary role is to stop the Zodiarts. These traits make her the team’s de facto leader, as she is constantly seen mobilizing the team and help directing strategies and actions alongside Kengo. While she keeps her elitist attitude (used more towards a comedic effect) top football jerseys, she also becomes genuinely more caring towards others, especially with her fellow Kamen Rider Club Members and would go to lengths for their sake, even if it means doing field work and getting herself really dirty. Miu has a strange habit of saying “oops” when making a mistake or if something strange happens.
Realizing that she and Shun would soon be graduating, she contemplates her activities in the Kamen Rider Club and chooses Yuki to be the next president when she is gone. After seeing the work she has put into the group when finding out about the Coma Zodiarts, she realizes not only has she made the right choice, but that she would soon leave the club seeing how everyone can handle themselves without her. Upsetting herself over this, she directs her fury at Shun who desperately attempts to ask her out to prom when she wants to ask Gentaro, instead. She gets her wish to dance with Gentaro due to Shun’s insistence and realizes that though she is leaving the high school, she will always be a part of the Kamen Rider Club. After graduating, she finds out that her college is close to AGHS so she can continue her Kamen Rider Club activities as chairwoman. This effectively returns the leadership of the club to her, and thus rendering Yuki’s appointment moot and the “Club President” title rendered empty. In the end, Shun proposes to her but is soon enamored by a ring from a mysterious man.

However, he is known to be a coward as he constantly flees from difficult situations. Prior to attending AGHS, JK had dreams of becoming a rock musician like his father since he was a child and formed a rock band with Tojiro Goto called Gene Goto. However, while in middle school, JK was forced to give up on his dream upon learning that he lacks the vocal talent for it. During his first year in AGHS, JK learned of Gentaro’s identity as Kamen Rider Fourze, agreeing to keep his mouth shut about it prior to talking Gentaro into protecting him from Fumihiro Nitta, a student he wronged by tricking him into being his bodyguard. Seeing the power of the Astroswitches in action personally, JK arranges the theft of the Elek Switch from Gentaro to teach him a lesson in trusting people, as well as to have him stick around in case Nitta comes for him again. However, once found out, JK is held captive by Nitta who allows him to call for help on the promise to release him if even one of his associates came to his aid. Though none came, Gentaro arrived to save JK despite his betrayal. The experience Gentaro learned from befriending someone like JK, to both the pros and cons of a person, allows him to assume Elek States. After JK learns what friendship really means, he is made a member of the Kamen Rider Club and uses his connections to aid the group in identifying Zodiarts’ Switchers and their targets through his connections.When Miu and Shun graduate, JK is named the new pilot of the Powerdizer through process of elimination (Kengo and Ryusei are tech support and Yuki and Tomoko are too weak to use it). While he proves to have a talent in piloting the heavy machine, his lack of experience and lasting stamina prevents him from piloting effectively. Luckily, as his college is near AGHS, Shun returns to the club to continue his role as the Powerdizer pilot, but mostly coaches JK in his new duties. JK is also known to be a skilled breakdancer, which is especially noted during the fight with the Pegasus Zodiarts when he successfully uses his moves to dodge a powerful kick. He also incorporates that same style whenever he pilots the Powerdizer.
During his second year in AGHS, JK creates the alias of DJ Gene to set up an internet radio show called DJ Gene Milky Night Carnival as a means to live out his dream of becoming a rock star, but the show becomes more popular than he expects. He is also reunited with middle school friend Tojiro Goto, but becomes conflicted between his loyalties to his old friend who is one of the Horoscopes and to his new friends in the Kamen Rider Club. Goto urges JK to continue with the show, using his sonic powers as the Capricorn Zodiarts to make them even more popular since it makes their musical skills better than before. JK’s internal conflicts continue when he discovers the Capricorn Zodiarts’ powers are brainwashing everyone in the school, but he does not want to be like his father who gave up on his dreams, so he keeps the show running and leaves the Kamen Rider Club due to his new-found understanding on the frailty of friendship and wants to live for his future instead. However, after seeing Gentaro stopping the Capricorn Zodiarts’s music with his father’s song, and being forgiven for his role in his former friend’s scheme, JK ends his broadcast and dream with the intent to cherish the friendships he has with the Kamen Rider Club.

Shun Daimonji (大文字 隼 Daimonji Shun) is a third-year, later graduate, student who is captain of the American Football team, thus treated like a king by the student body. He is a stereotypical jock whose life has been planned out by his father, raised to believe that those under him are trash and how to play them to suit his needs. As he is consciously compelled not to shame his father and their family name, Shun distances himself from anything that he thinks could destroy his reputation, as he does with Miu when she fell from grace during the Queen Festival. Though he tries to reconcile with her, Shun is surprised when Miu breaks up with him and starts hanging out with Gentaro and his friends. He later gets forced into Mr. Satake’s detention class for attacking one of his teammates who insulted his leadership abilities. Though he resolves to pass so he can return to his club activities, Shun’s attempts to keep the Kamen Rider Club members in the class eventually result with him being labelled as a delinquent by Mr. Satake as well. Gentaro’s earnest effort in wanting to know him better eventually gets through to Shun, and he reveals in tears that he only wants to live up to his father’s expectations, without being truly happy with who he is and what he has achieved. Furthermore, his holier-than-thou attitude only makes him an outcast of sorts and he confesses his envy towards the Kamen Rider Club members, where the members stick together and have real fun. His story moved Gentaro to tears to his surprise. Although Gentaro respects his wish to live up to his father’s expectations, he tells him that he should also do what he truly wants to. This compels Shun to accept Gentaro as a friend and later battle alongside Gentaro, joining the Kamen Rider Club and providing his athletic prowess as the Powerdizer’s official pilot. He is proven to be very adept at manning the machine as he even can do acrobatics with it without suffering any detrimental side effects. He is seen to be more humble and friendly after befriending Gentaro, willingly help the club with anything. He is also very uncomfortable confronting his old attitude, especially when others are following his old example, and attempts to atone for his previous ways like straightening out his teammates when they are acting like he used to, and out of guilt for pushing Miura over the edge, tries to bring Miura back to school by visiting him and apologize to him personally over and over again, even though his apologies always fall on deaf ears.
When Shun and Miu are graduating, Shun insists on asking Miu to prom in very outlandish ways revealing that he has true feelings for her. However, he finds out the Miu wants to go to prom with Gentaro and becomes upset over this, even throwing a punch at Gentaro who went out of his way to get Miu to go with Shun to prom. While dancing with Miu, he realizes that the Kamen Rider Club are fighting to protect their prom and finds it hard to sit with that fact and just enjoy themselves, prompting him and Miu to leave the prom early to assist them. Afterwards, he insists that Gentaro dance with Miu like she wanted to, as Shun wants to send her off happy. After graduation, Shun finds out that both his and Miu’s college is near AGHS, allowing both of them to continue their duties in the Kamen Rider Club, thus graduating only from high school and not the club. Eventually, after the defeat of the Horoscopes, Shun attempts to ask Miu for her hand in marriage before the moment is ruined by the appearance of a mysterious young man.

She is revealed to have knowledge of the urban legends of other Kamen Riders, playing an indirect role in the creation of the Kamen Rider Club. Since watching Yuki perform at the Queen Festival, seeing a kindred spirit in her, Tomoko has begun to stalk her. Before she joins the Kamen Rider Club, she is one of the few students to be aware of the existence of the Rabbit Hatch, but she does not know at the time that it is located on the Moon where she wishes to live on. Eventually, Tomoko joins a group of other goth students in a witches’ coven called the Lunar Witches as its leader Ritsuko Usaka offers to make her dream of leaving the Earth to live on the Moon a reality. But she is devastated when she finds out that the Lunar Witches are shams, which leads Tomoko to be approached by the Scorpion Zodiarts to receive a Zodiarts Switch. Believing she has nowhere to go except the Moon, and that her Zodiarts Switch may fulfill her dreams and become a new person, Gentaro takes her to the Rabbit Hatch to show her what the moon really looks like. Although she is disappointed there is nothing but cold space, Tomoko is glad that she has finally gone to the Moon while finding comfort and acceptance in the Kamen Rider Club members, especially Gentaro as he tells her she is just fine as she currently is. This leads to her renouncing her membership with the Lunar Witches and accepting Gentaro’s hand in friendship while later, much to Kengo’s chagrin, throws her yet-to-be activated Zodiarts Switch into the river near school. She becomes uncomfortable with occults, something unusual for a goth, after her experience with the Luna Witches. As a Kamen Rider Club member, Tomoko mainly uses her sixth sense to help out with investigations and detect things the others overlook. She starts to keep notes on Ryusei as she realizes strange things happen to him. Ryusei loses her trust at first for betraying the club and she tells him that he is not a true Kamen Rider. At the end, she sees Ryusei redeeming himself without the power of the Meteor Driver. Once the Aries Zodiarts is defeated, Ryusei regains her trust.

He is infatuated with Ms. Sonoda, even though she does not have any interest in him and would always walk away when he is about to confess his feelings. Mr. Ohsugi also gets into arguments with Gentaro over him not wearing the school uniform, among many other things, and has since listed him as the top problematic student in the school. Ryusei also gets on Mr. Ohsugi’s bad side by pointing out that Gentaro is within his rights in terms of the dress code not being strictly mandatory. He also happens to be very superstitious, reading the weekly horoscope (he is a Scorpio) and believing in curses. He likes to put up a strong front, only to shirk and cower later when things go haywire. He is also shown to be jealous of Hayami, as he is almost a complete opposite of what he is and Hayami is very close to Ms. Sonoda. He is very obviously devastated in Ms. Sonoda’s “absence due to illness” for extended periods, even more so when he heard that she quit her job altogether later, blaming Gentaro and the others for her health trouble to the point of arranging it that he would be their homeroom teacher in their third year, as well as putting those three he deem problematic in his class in the front seats so to keep an eye on them. His obsession with catching their misdeeds eventually leads him to discover the Rabbit Hatch and the existence of the Kamen Rider Club. He finds it absurd that not only are the three students he deems problematic are in the technically illegal club, second year students and even star alumni are in too. Even after hearing their reasons to have the club as such, Mr. Ohsugi still intends to disband the club as it has failed in following the rules of being approved by a faculty member, eventually escaping the Rabbit Hatch with a confiscated Net Switch to hand over to Principal Hayami. However, upon learning from Ran that some of the faculty are playing a role in the monster attacks, and after seeing the Kamen Rider Club in action when they save him from the Musca Zodiarts, Mr. Ohsugi gives the club his approval to be a legitimate school club and becomes the group’s academic adviser, stating that it his duty as a teacher to look out for his students and gaining the respect from the club members, and reconciling with the three he deems to be nothing but trouble. JK later tells Mr. Ohsugi everything about the identity of the Horoscopes and he is surprised to learn that Ms. Sonoda was the Scorpion Zodiarts.

As the head of the Society, she grades people in a way similar to how Cycnus believes people are worthy of his presence. The Kamen Rider Club initially believes that she is the Switcher for the Cygnus Zodiarts before learning that the Zodiarts is an alternate personality of Norio Eguchi.

Having watched Gentaro for quite some time to know that he is Kamen Rider Fourze, she genuinely feels sorry for him, believing that all of the fighting he is doing is taking away from his chance to live a normal life as a teenager. It is not made clear however, if she actually has feelings for Gentaro, or just wants like Gentaro to be happy and normal as a friend. Accompanying them on the class trip to Kyoto, Yukina overzealously does everything to become Gentaro’s girlfriend to ensure Gentaro is having a good time, while holding Yuki’s Hayabusa plush doll hostage to force her to cooperate. After Gentaro reveals his identity as Kamen Rider Fourze to her, she reveals that she had known the fact that he is a Kamen Rider all along and attempts to convince him to quit by stealing the Fourze Driver, but she is persuaded afterwards by both Gentaro and Yuki to return the Driver, when the Libra Zodiarts attacks the last altar keeping The Hole above Kyoto from collapsing. She comes to understand that to Gentaro, going lengths to help any friend in trouble is completely normal, with or without Kamen Rider Fourze’s powers. In exchange for returning the Fourze Driver, she asks that they take a picture with their most beautiful smiles together before they go back to school.

She and Sugiura never saw eye to eye and have always been butting heads over a variety of matters concerning the student body, chief among them a quartet of reckless students abusing the school’s policies of allowing freedom. She insists on implementing measures to keep students in check while Sugiura insists on allowing students maximum freedom. Confronting Kamou, Kiyama, Kito, and Umezawa about it when they went too far, Sayaka fell down the stairs and is hospitalized as Sugiura assumes her duties. Though she thinks Sugiura has finally come to his senses and accepts her views, Sayaka learns that Sugiura actually has feelings for her and instead of adopting her views, Sugiura is only doing it for her sake.

Nadeshiko Misaki (美咲 撫子 Misaki Nadeshiko) is a transfer student at AGHS whom Gentaro falls in love with. However Nadeshiko was actually the SOLU, short for “Seeds Of Life from the Universe”, from the meteorites which copied a human form. By seeing Gentaro transform into Kamen Rider Fourze, she copies it to make a Nadeshiko Driver (なでしこドライバー Nadeshiko Doraibā) which enables her to transform into Kamen Rider Nadeshiko (仮面ライダーなでしこ Kamen Raidā Nadeshiko). Her belt is also compatible with the Astro Switches, but can only use Astroswitches for the arms and lacks the use of Limit Break. It contains copies of the Rocket Switch and Radar Switch. She also creates the Mega Burgermeal Foodroid and a copy of the Camera Switch. She is later taken by Suddendath and turned into the SOLU Switch for Kannagi to transform into the Super Gingaoh. She creates the S-Rocket Switch for Kamen Rider Fourze to use, which she leaves Gentaro before being captured. Kamen Rider Nadeshiko’s Rider Kick is the Nadeshiko Rocket Kick (なでしこロケットキック Nadeshiko Roketto Kikku), which is based on the heel kick performed by Homare Sawa during the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup. She can also perform the Double Rider Rocket Punch (ダブルライダーロケットパンチ Daburu Raidā Roketto Panchi) with Kamen Rider Fourze.
During the events of Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Wizard & Fourze: Movie War Ultimatum, Nadeshiko was reunited with Gentaro through the help of XVⅡ as she participate, along with other Kamen Riders, in the final battle against the Akumaizer before she gave the Nadeshiko Switch to Gentaro in order to become Fourze Meteor Nadeshiko Fusion States.

Jiro Iseki (井石 二郎 Iseki Jirō) is one of Ryusei’s friends from Subaruboshi High School who somehow acquired a Zodiarts Switch because he wanted to be stronger than Ryusei. However, the Switch is incompatible with him and thus backfired, which caused a massive explosion that severely injured Jiro, rendering him in a coma ever since. The Zodiarts Switch stayed in a turned-on state since then and as only he himself can turn the switch off, the lingering effects in him rendering him unable to helped by modern medicine. This event would lead to Ryusei becoming Kamen Rider Meteor to find Aries Zodiarts under Tachibana’s orders. Though he is not sure what the Horoscopes can do, but he knows that the said Zodiarts can save Jiro. When the Aries Zodiarts finally makes its appearance, Ryusei betrays both Tachibana and the Kamen Rider Club in order to fulfill his wish to save Jiro. The Aries Zodiarts honors his deal with Ryusei and awakens Jiro, with Ryusei finally being able to get him to turn the Zodiarts Switch off. The joy is short-lived however, as Jiro is still critically injured despite being awakened and relapses, due to losing the will to live after Ryusei tells him the lengths he went to save him.

Studying Cosmic Energy together with Gamou and Emoto, he managed to develop both the Fourze Driver and the Astroswitches from the Core Switch yet expected the finalized versions would be made by future generations after his death. Seventeen years prior to the beginning of the series, Emoto’s actions in taking the Zodiarts Switches to Earth for Gamou led to the destruction of most of the base with Rokuro stranded on the moon to die. However, he left an inscription on the outer wall of the Rabbit Hatch, explaining the legacy he meant to leave behind with the Astroswitches and Fourze Driver, which is also the belief that he upholds steadfastly.

Takashi Satake (佐竹 剛 Satake Takashi) is the teacher in charge of the Sunday remedial class/detention session, where allegedly only the most troublesome students in the school get forced into, and labeled by many students as “Study Hell” (地獄補習 Jigoku Hoshū) as he is a cruel and unforgiving man who makes his purpose to teach those in his class to become productive members of society. Mr. Satake also has an extreme intolerance towards delinquents, likening them to spots of dirt in a clean campus. He went so far to even call Gentaro a “bad boy” (バッドボーイ baddo bōi), as well as giving him more severe punishments than all others in his class. However, after Gentaro saves his son from himself, Mr. Satake has a change of heart and gives Gentaro a passing grade in the test suggested by Shun just to give Gentaro a hard time. In the series epilogue, with Hayami gone, Mr. Satake takes over the role of principal.
Takashi Satake is portrayed by Satoshi Jinbo (神保 悟志 Jinbo Satoshi).
Haruka Utsugi (宇津木 遥 Utsugi Haruka) replaces Sarina Sonoda as the homeroom teacher for class 2-B, though she is rather uninterested with the job and always muses about quiting her job as a teacher, even in front of the students. She is a well-trained kickboxer and quite wary of her surroundings. Unlike the sour face she puts on at school, she is shown to be truly happy when she is training. She takes up a teaching job only because she is unsure if she can make a living out of kickboxing. Due to her fighting style, she is set up to look like as if she is the Switcher of the Pegasus Zodiarts. Gentaro eventually learns the truth while counseling Ms. Haruka, revealing his identity as Kamen Rider Fourze to her. He tells her that she has to stay true to her path in life, suggesting that she should try to balance her life both as a kickboxer and a teacher instead, just like how he is balancing his life both as a student and a Kamen Rider. Eventually she opts to stay at AGHS, forming a kickboxing club and, to Gentaro’s chagrin, insists that he take some lessons from her, as his form is rather sloppy and inefficient.
Haruka makes a brief appearance in Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Wizard & Fourze: Movie War Ultimatum, where it is stated that in addition to teaching, she has now become a champion kick boxer.
Haruka Utsugi is portrayed by Nao Nagasawa (長澤 奈央 Nagasawa Nao).
Mr. Morota (諸田先生 Morota-sensei) is an effeminate math teacher at AGHS who has romantic feelings for Hayami. In the Net Movies, during his search for the final Horoscopes member, Hayami has a horrible nightmare where Morota is the Pisces Zodiarts.
Mr. Morota is portrayed by Satoshi Morota (諸田 敏 Morota Satoshi), who is also the show’s director.
The Horoscopes (ホロスコープス Horosukōpusu), alternatively called the Twelve Constellations of the Zodiac (黄道十二星座 Kōdō Jū-Ni Seiza), are the series’ main recurring antagonists who are behind students as Amanogawa High acquiring Zodiarts Switch (ゾディアーツスイッチ Zodiātsu Suitchi) to create monstrous construct bodies called Zodiarts (ゾディアーツス Zodiātsu) that are able to resist the dangers of transwarp travel. In time, the mind of the Switcher (スイッチャー Suitchā) is transferred into the Zodiarts’s body at the switch’s Last One phase. Being evolved Zodiarts, having absorbed their original human bodies and assume powerful Supernova (超新星 Chōshinsei) forms, the Horoscopes serve under Mituaki Gamou and assume themselves to be chosen by the Universe to become superior beings. They act to present Zodiarts Switches among the student body Gamou whom believes to have the potential to awaken their Resurrection Star (最輝星 Saikisei) and evolve to fill their membership roster. Like the Fourze technology, the Zodiarts Switches were reverse-engineered by Gamou from the Presenters (プレゼンター Purezentā), a mysterious alien race that sends Core Switches to various worlds to enable the dominant race of that planet to reverse engineer a means to contact them. Once all twelve Horoscopes are gathered, Gamou will cause a mysterious event called the Day of Awakening (覚醒の日 Kakusei no Hi) where he uses the eleven additional Switches and the atmospheric vortex above the school known as The Hole (ザ・ホール Za Hōru) would be converted into the Dark Nebula (ダークネビュラ Dāku Nebyura), a dimensional labyrinth created from the negative Cosmic Energy produced from a Zodiarts’s creation, to allow him to reach the Presenter. But in the process, the Dark Nebula’s pull would destroy the entire city. While all twelve Horoscopes Switches have been created and in his hands, Gamou is unable to enact the Day of Awakening due to Kengo’s interference. But even though he kills Kengo to rectify it, Gamou’s scheme is ultimately foiled by the Kamen Rider Club.
Mituaki Gamou (我望 光明 Gamō Mitsuaki), previously referred to as the red-eyed man (赤い目の男 akai me no otoko), is Amanogawa High School’s school board chairman who often uses space metaphors in his speech. As a child, Gamou heard the call of the Presenters at the time of the Apollo 11 exploration, motivating him to join NASA and the Russian Federal Space Agency in attempts to fulfill his promise to meet them. While able to encourage others, believing the Presenters’ call and promise to be destiny, Gamou has ultimately always been friendless and considered the concept beneath him. Twenty years prior to the beginning of the series, while a member of OSTO, Gamou and Utahoshi found the Core Switch that the Presenters sent to the moon as a test for sentient life in the solar system. The two cracked the majority of the puzzle of the Core Switch, but clashed over the method by which the Presenters should be contacted. Seeing Utahoshi’s Fourze System a dead end as it would be generations before it was completed, Gamou’s egocentric nature leads him to create the Zodiarts Switches as a means to forced evolve humans into beings able to withstand the rigors of transwarp travel. Three years after the finding, Gamou had Emoto steal the completed Zodiarts Switches from the OSTO lunar station and murder Utahoshi, though Emoto instead left him stranded on the moon.
A decade before the events of the series, Gamou built Amanogawa High directly under The Hole, ostensibly in order to foster a love of space exploration in future generations. But in reality, with a funding arrangement set up with Foundation X, Gamou utilized the school to create and raise Zodiarts in order to find and gather all twelve members of the Horoscopes for the Day of Awakening. To that end, Gamou became one of the first Horoscopes, the powerful Sagittarius Zodiarts (サジタリウス・ゾディアーツ Sajitariusu Zodiātsu) who can generate a bow on his left forearm called Gilgamesh (ギルガメッシュ Girugamesshu) to unleash a barrage of Cosmic Energy arrows known as the Apostolos (アポストロス Aposutorosu). Like Tatsugami, it is seen that Gamou can utilize other Horoscopes Switches, but rarely does so as he prefers the overwhelming power of his own Switch. Because of his saturation with massive levels of negative cosmic energy, even in his human form Gamou is shown to possesses supernatural abilities such as giving other members of the Horoscopes the ability to acquire Supernova powers and the ability to conduct hypnotic suggestion that he uses on outsiders to drive them away, thus keeping his true agenda a secret from prying eyes.
During the first half of the series, Gamou uses the principle he set up in his school to encourage the manifestation of individuality in students so that Zodiarts selected from among them can do whatever pleases them in hope they can become Horoscopes, even if it means doing extensive damage to the school. Only the Horoscopes members are accounted for if they are defeated by a Kamen Rider too many times. Gamou almost sends Principal Hayami to the Dark Nebula for his repeated failures but kept him as his awaken Supernova power would quicken the search for their remaining members while learning from Tatsugami, through Goto’s powers, that the Core Switch still exists. With only two Horoscopes left, after Emoto reveals his true colors in aiding Fourze and Meteor, Gamou makes himself known in his Zodiarts form as he easily defeats the two Kamen Riders. During the incident with the Gemini Zodiarts, whom he had a personal interest in due to Yuki having heard the Presenter like he had, Gamou begins to suspect Kengo to possess the Core Switch. Although he does not initially see the boy to be a threat, his identity being revealed in the process, Gamou’s Day of Awakening is thwarted by Kengo using his Core Child powers to negate the Horoscopes Switches. Knowing that Kengo would need to die to achieve his goals and not be beaten to the Presents, Gamou assumes his Sagittarius Nova (サジタリウス・ノヴァ Sajitariusu Nova) form, trading his bow and armor for a much lighter body. In this state, Gamou can launch arrows from his left hand and perform a flying kick attack similar to a Rider Kick, with his leg surrounded by an aura of negative Cosmic Energy resembling an arrow. After sending the Leo Zodiarts to attack the Rabbit Hatch and lure out Kengo as he was about to leave Earth, Gamou crushes the Core Switch that maintains Kengo’s life. Though he believes he will succeed this time, Sagittarius Nova finds himself facing Fourze before being defeated by the Kamen Rider’s Rider Rocket Drill Kick attack. Defeated and finally accepting Gentaro’s ideals, he accepts Gentaro’s friendship, but his body begins to evaporate into stardust due to side-effect of his forced evolution. After asking the Kamen Rider Club to meet the Presenters in his stead, Gamou leaves to spend his final moments alone and use what little time he has left in mending the broken Core Switch with the Aquarius Zodiarts’ healing powers to resurrect Kengo.
The kanji that comprise Gamou’s given name can be translated as “bright light” (光明 kōmei), which is one of the epithets of the Greek god Apollo. Apollo also was the god of archery, linking Gamou to Sagittarius the Archer.
Mituaki Gamou is portrayed by Shingo Tsurumi (鶴見 辰吾 Tsurumi Shingo). As a child, Gamou is portrayed by Musashi Takahata (高旗 武蔵 Takahata Musashi).
Sarina Sonoda (園田 紗里奈 Sonoda Sarina) is the youthful and beautiful homeroom teacher of class 2-B who teaches classical literature. Though she appears to be a well-loved teacher, Sonoda is actually a Horoscopes member who uses her pleasant facade to know students better to find ideal Horoscope candidates. She herself was originally an AGHS student until she met Hayami, who gave her a Zodiarts Switch that enabled her to become the Canis Minor Zodiarts (カニスミノル・ゾディアーツ Kanisu Minoru Zodiātsu). Eventually, after her Zodiarts Switch assumed its Last One state and her Resurrection Star glowed, Sonoda discarded her humanity and evolved into the Scorpion Zodiarts (スコーピオン・ゾディアーツ Sukōpion Zodiātsu). While in her Scorpion Zodiarts state, likely to conceal her identity, Sonoda’s voice deepens to sound masculine. Out of Gamou’s inner circle, Ms. Sonoda is among the most loyal to his cause and serves as his right hand.
Using the special Scorpion Switch to assume her Zodiarts form, the Scorpion Zodiarts uses a kick-based fighting style. She is also armed with powerful claw gauntlets and a scorpion’s tail-like ponytail that doubles as a whip and can inject an agonizing venom into her victims. The Scorpion Zodiarts initially works behind the scenes, distributing Zodiarts Switches to students motivated by revenge on those who wronged them. The Scorpion Zodiarts later fights Fourze during the events of the Chameleon Zodiarts’s vendetta against Miu, mainly to keep the Kamen Rider from interfering as Gamou gave his subordinates orders to not eliminate the Kamen Rider. But Gamou retracts his order when Sonoda begins to give Miura a new Zodiarts Switch, unlocking her Supernova power to assume the scorpion man-like Scorpion Nova (スコーピオン・ノヴァ Sukōpion Nova). This enables her to battle the now visibly stronger Fourze while holding enough energy mass to destroy a city, only for Fourze to defeat her after getting her into space with a Big Space Rider Rocket Drill Kick. Spirited away by Hayami with her identity protected, Sonoda is relieved of her Zodiarts Switch until she pleads Gamou into giving it back to her in response to the appearance of Kamen Rider Meteor. But her loss against Meteor results with her being seemingly banished into the Dark Nebula by the Virgo Zodiarts as punishment for her repeated failures. Though later revealed to be alive and in suspended animation within the M-BUS, Sonoda’s Scorpion Switch is given to Gamou before he entrusts its use to Tatsugami. Sonoda’s disappearance is covered up soon after to make it seem that she is on a sabbatical and then a resignation due to health reasons.
An anagram of her name Sonoda Sarina (そのださりな?) is the phrase Sasori na no da (さそりなのだ?), which means “I am the scorpion”.
Sarina Sonoda is portrayed by Yuka Konan (虎南 有香 Konan Yuka). The masculine voice of the Scorpion Zodiarts is provided by Eiji Takemoto (竹本 英史 Takemoto Eiji).
Kouhei Hayami (速水 公平 Hayami Kōhei) is the principal of Amanogawa High School. He is an attractive and charming young man who has a Ph.D in Physics, that most of the student body and faculty, even the mothers of the students, save for Mr. Ohsugi, fall for. In actuality, he is a loyal member of the Horoscopes who uses the Libra Switch to transform into the Libra Zodiarts (リブラ・ゾディアーツ Ribura Zodiātsu) who uses his khakkhara called Dikē (ディケ Dike) to create illusions to fool his targets. Though capable of holding his own in a fight, the Libra Zodiarts is one of the weaker members within the Horoscopes in terms of combat capabilities as he overwhelmed when the Kamen Riders have access to their upgrade forms. He is a shrewd character with an inquisitive nature and has managed to prevail thus far, due to him actively avoid direct confrontation with the Kamen Riders and undying loyalty to Gamou. True to the nature of his Zodiarts form, which is based on a star sign that takes the form of a scale, Hayami has a habit of using terms related to weight like “light” and “heavy” when talking to others.
In his first appearance before the Kamen Rider Club, he saves the unconscious Ms. Sonoda while casting an illusion over her to protect her identity from Kamen Rider Fourze. Hayami then reluctantly takes over her duties in the distribution of Zodiarts Switches, targeting those among his prized pupils who have the potential to become Horoscopes. He also rarely intervenes with the businesses of his Zodiarts recruits by fighting Kamen Rider Fourze. After Ms. Sonoda is sent to the Dark Nebula goalkeeper jerseys for kids, Hayami is ordered by a worrisome Gamou to speed up his recruitment strategy. Playing an indirect role in bringing Natsuji Kijima into the Horoscopes’ ranks, not tolerating the newcomer’s blatant disrespect towards him on many levels, Hayami takes advantage of Kijima’s defeat by Kamen Rider Meteor Storm to get him sent into Kijima into the Dark Nebula while he gives Gamou the Cancer Switch. Using a field trip to Kyoto have Kamen Rider Fourze’s presence reveal four altars gathering Cosmic Energy to The Hole above the city, with Tatsugami assigned to oversee his progress, Hayami destroys the four altars so only The Hole above AGHS can amass Cosmic Energy. Though he succeeds, his defeat by Kamen Rider Fourze deems him as of no further use to Gamou.
However, Hayami’s desperation of being exiled causes him to manifest his Supernova state in the form of the Eye of Laplace (ラプラスの瞳 Rapurasu no Hitomi), a power that enables him to see a person’s “Fate of the Stars” (星の運命 Hoshi no Sadame) to see not only one’s potential to become a Horoscopes member but eventually locate other Horoscopes Switches. With this newfound power, Gamou allows Hayami to stay so they can put his new power in recruiting the Capricorn, Aquarius, and Taurus Zodiarts. But as the final phase of Gamou’s plan begins, playing a role in Emoto’s death and in Dark Yuki’s creation, Hayami begins to question the Horoscopes’ goal and where he fits in it once his usefulness comes to an end before being welcomed into Gamou’s inner circle as he learns the nature of the Day of Awakening. As revealed in the Net Movies, with Tatsugami harassing him to no end, Hayami spends his time searching for the final Horoscopes member by interviewing students before finally finding Ran. From there, Hayami formulates a scheme where he appears to betray Gamou to ensure that Ran becomes the Pisces Zodiarts, giving his Libra Switch to the Kamen Rider Club as a proof of his conviction before it ends up being Tatsugami who secretly gives it back to him. But once everything goes to plan, Hayami reveals his true colors before taking a Rider Super Galaxy Finish meant for the Sagittarius Zodiarts. Drifting into the Dark Nebula, satisfied with his self-sacrifice, the Libra Zodiarts is vaporized by the vortex’s lightning.
His given name Kōhei (公平?) is also the Japanese word for “fairness”, “impartial”, and “justice”, referencing that the constellation of Libra represents the scales of Astraea, the Greek goddess of justice.
Kouhei Hayami is portrayed by Kousei Amano (天野 浩成 Amano Kōsei).
The Virgo Zodiarts (ヴァルゴ・ゾディアーツ Varugo Zodiātsu) is a feminine-appearing Zodiarts who serves as the judge and executioner amongst the Horoscopes. Armed with the Rhodia (ロディア Rodia) halberd, the Virgo Zodiarts can produce barriers strong enough to deflect even the Limit Breaks of Fourze Cosmic States, fire black hole-like orbs that consume anything they touch, and conjure a portal to send victims to what is claimed to be the Dark Nebula. It is ultimately revealed that the Virgo Zodiarts is actually a man named Kuniteru Emoto (江本 州輝 Emoto Kuniteru), a research associate in OSTO with Rokuro Utahoshi and Mituaki Gamou studying Cosmic Energy. But Emoto was jealous of Utahoshi, comparing him and Gamou to the Earth and Sun while seeing himself as the moon, paling in comparison to either but reflecting the sun’s light. Forming a partnership with Gamou, Emoto played a role in stealing the Zodiarts Switches from the OSTO space station, leaving Utahoshi stranded on the moon. But coming to regret his actions, vowing to take Utahoshi’s place as the Earth in their relationship to Gamou, Emoto became one of the first members of the Horoscopes while using his space-time warping to travel from Amanogawa High to the Kyoto Space University (宇宙京都大学 Uchū Kyōto Daigaku) where he works as a professor studying The Hole above Kyoto.
Emoto also uses his teleportation powers to travel to the M-BUS satellite where he dons a mask and adopts the alias of “Tachibana” (タチバナ), using voice-altering software and claiming to be from the Anti-Zodiarts Union to use Ryusei as Kamen Rider Meteor while giving Kengo the Gate Switch which eventually lands him on the Rabbit Hatch. These actions are part of his ultimate motive to actually subvert Gamou’s agenda. Furthermore, lying that he sent former members to die in the Dark Nebula, Emoto actually sends the former Horoscopes members to the M-BUS where they enter suspended animation for their own protection.
First appearing in his Zodiarts form during the events of Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max, Emoto attempts to capture Nadeshiko for Gamou before being forced to fall back after being hit with the Double Rider Rocket Punch. Soon after sending Ryusei to Amanogawa High with instructions to conceal his identity, allowing him to continue being a Kamen Rider after the Kamen Rider Club learned his idenity, Emoto proceeds to watch over the events to follow as Tachibana and the Virgo Zodiarts. After The Hole in Kyoto is negated, Emoto transfers to Miraikan where he becomes an instructor to Kengo, Yuki, and Tomoko. When Tomoko learned of his identity as the Virgo Zodarts while inspecting the Dark Nebula, Emoto sends her to the M-BUS to conceal his secret before using scare tactics to intimidate Yuki, Miu, Shun, and JK into leaving the Kamen Rider Club. This act was so Emoto, as Tachibana guise, can train Gentaro into using the Cosmic Switch through ruthlessness rather than friendship. But Emoto failed to take account for Kengo’s ingenuity and the Libra Zodiarts’ evolving Supernova powers, with his identities as both Tachibana and the Virgo Zodiarts are accidentally revealed to both sides along with his agenda. Once doubting the power of friendship as he had experienced its frailty first hand, Emoto regains faith in the sentiment after seeing Gentaro’s reinforced faith in the friendship along with the Kamen Rider Club members staying by his size regardless of whatever danger looms ahead. But as Emoto becomes Gentaro’s friend, he is mortally wounded by the Sagittarius Zodiarts prior to spiriting Kengo away to reveal the truth of his father’s death. After pleaing Kengo to stop the Horoscopes, the greatly weakened Emoto is landed the final blow by the Leo Zodiarts after teleporting them and the Libra Zodiarts away from Kengo. Losing the Virgo Zodiarts Switch to Gamou as he is left to die, Emoto’s final thoughts are the knowledge that he has gained new true friends and has done something worthwhile. Emoto also left behind a flash drive that Kengo finds, the contents of which detail his origins and the window of opportunity should the Day of Awakening start.
His surname Emoto (江本?) when romanized is the Japanese word Otome (乙女?), translated as “Virgin”, read backwards. The kanji that make up his given name Kuniteru (州輝?) can be read as Supika (スピカ?, “Spica”), which is a combination of su, an alternate reading of kuni (州?), and pika, a Japanese onomatopoeia for the word kagayaku (輝く?, “to shine”). As “Tachibana”, Emoto took his name from the legendary man who aided the first seven Kamen Riders: Tōbei Tachibana (立花 藤兵衛 Tachibana Tōbee).
Kuniteru Emoto is portrayed by Hajime Yamazaki (山崎 一 Yamazaki Hajime). The female voice of the Virgo Zodiarts is provided by Rie Tanaka (田中 理恵 Tanaka Rie), who also voices Shun’s mother.

Kou Tatsugami (立神 吼 Tatsugami Kō) is a skilled martial artist who originally fought in street fights with little to live for. But it was after meeting and being bested by Gamou that Tatsugami found purpose in his life in the Horoscopes, becoming fanatically loyal to Gamou and serving as both his personal aide and bodyguard. He usually is seen crushing two walnuts with his bare hand as a display of his strength and drinks liquor alone in a quiet environment, taking offense to anyone who disrupts him at the time and attacking them regardless if they are allies. Though he knows Gamou’s plan would destroy everything, Tatsugami is willing to die if helps his master. As the member of the Horoscopes as the Leo Zodiarts (レオ・ゾディアーツ Reo Zodiātsu), one of the strongest fighters of the group with his massive clawed gauntlets and powerful lion’s roar shock-wave attack, super speed, and toughness capable of shaking off Limit Breaks effortlessly. The Leo Zodiarts, compared to other Horoscopes, can also produce his own personal kabuki-themed retainers known as the Leo Dustards (レオ・ダスタード Reo Dasutādo) that use twin Duswords. Prior to his formal meeting with the Kamen Rider Club, Tatsugami assumed his Zodiarts form to oversee the transaction of Gamou giving a set of Zodarts Switches to Lem Kannagi. Tatsugami is sent by Gamou to oversee Hayami’s progress in Kyoto, assuming his Zodiarts form to over power both Kamen Riders at once without any help. Meeting Tojiro Goto, Tatsugami cryptically revealed the new member’s ability might be useful in locating the Core Switch, proven later by Gamou himself that he is now able to sense faint traces of the mysterious Switch. Like Gamou, Tatsugami has a unique physique where he can use the Zodiarts Switches of other Horoscopes members, his natural fighting abilities allowing him to effectively fight better than their original Switchers. After executing Emoto for his betrayal, Tatsugami takes over the role of obtaining the final two Horoscopes Switches. In the end, having had constant battles with Ryusei since their first meeting, Tatsugami is defeated by Kamen Rider Meteor Storm and his body dissolves away into stardust.
An alternate reading of his surname Tatsugami (立神?) is Tategami, which is also the Japanese word for “mane” (鬣 tategami). The kanji used in his given name Kō (吼?) is one of the kanji used for the word hoeru (吼える?, “to roar”).
Kou Tatsugami is portrayed by Kazutoshi Yokoyama (横山 一敏 Yokoyama Kazutoshi).
Natsuji Kijima (鬼島 夏児 Kijima Natsuji) is an arrogant second-year student with a sharp tongue and who displays hostility toward anyone who irritates him. Originally president of the AGHS rakugo club, Kijima found a Zodiarts Switch by chance that the Libra Zodiarts dropped during a fight with Kamen Rider Fourze and becomes the Pegasus Zodiarts (ペガサス・ゾディアーツ Pegasasu Zodiātsu), acquiring a new-found taste for power. Using his newfound power, Kijima seeks revenge, while also for fun, on the new 2-B homeroom teacher Ms. Haruka Utsugi for taking his rakugo fan by attacking any martial artists he finds, mimicking her fighting style so the Kamen Rider Club would believe she is the Switcher. However, the club learns the truth before Kamen Rider Fourze Elek States destroys the Pegasus Zodiarts. Unfortunately, with the Virgo Zodiarts’s help when his Zodiarts form resurrects, Kijima is able to evolve into the Cancer Zodiarts (キャンサー・ゾディアーツ Kyansā Zodiātsu), who is armed with sharp and heavy pincers on his left forearm, capable of cutting just about anything, liquify himself to retreat or disappear, and his body is protected by a hard-spiky carapace strong enough to withstand even the Rider Super Electromagnetic Bomber Limit Break unscathed. All of the above combat-specific features, along with the ability to remove the life force of people and place them in comas, enable him to become the most powerful Hororscopes warrior so far. Although being the fifth Horoscopes and winning Gamou’s favor, Kijima flaunts his strength around without discretion unlike his other Horoscopes comrades, and constantly picks fights with the Kamen Riders. He has also made an enemy out of Hayami by not only insisting on being treated as an equal, but also belittling the principal at every turn.
While learning Kamen Rider Meteor’s identity, proceeding to mess with him for his amusement, Kijima somehow manages to evoke his latent Supernova powers on his own, enabling him to transform into the more crab-like Cancer Nova (キャンサー・ノヴァ Kyansā Nova), with even more impregnable armor than his regular Cancer Zodiarts form. This amuses Gamou even more, although the chairman does muse behind Kijima’s back that the Cancer Zodiarts’s evolution is going too fast. After being defeated in his Supernova form by Kamen Rider Meteor’s newly obtained Meteor Storm form, Kijima limps onto the AGHS campus and drops his Zodiarts Switch, which Principal Hayami takes. Though Kijima pleads with the principal, saying that he knows the true identity of Kamen Rider Meteor and the information would prove useful enough to win back Gamou’s favor, Hayami states his intent to do away with him regardless. Finding himself in the form of a meddling detective by Hayami’s illusion, Kijima is sent to the Dark Nebula by an unsuspecting Virgo Zodiarts after Hayami talks her into it. Hayami later conceals his actions by claiming that Kijima had died in battle, unaware that Kijima is actually in suspended animation within the M-BUS, as he gives Gamou the Cancer Switch before it is entrusted to Tatsugami.
The kanji that make up his given name Natsuji (夏児?) are read in the on’yomi method as kani (かに?), the Japanese word for “crab.”
Natsuji Kijima is portrayed by Soran Tamoto (タモト 清嵐 Tamoto Soran).
Tatsumori Yamada (山田 竜守 Yamada Tatsumori) is a transfer student at SBHS who is originally a quiet member of AGHS’s drama club. However, upon arriving to Subaruboshi High, Yamada used the Zodiarts Switch he obtained to become the Lepus Zodiarts before evolving into the sixth member of the Horoscopes known as the Aries Zodiarts (アリエス・ゾディアーツ Ariesu Zodiātsu). Armed with a scepter called Coppelius (コッペリウス Kopperiusu), the Aries Zodiarts emits an aura that can slow down or speed up a person’s bodily functions, allowing him to easily tire people out as well as rendering people unconscious. While not shown to be powerful in direct combat, the Aries Zodiarts’s ability to put his opponent to sleep makes him extremely dangerous regardless, even to fellow Horoscopes if he wants to. He abuses this ability and developed a god complex to the point of totally disregarding the Horoscopes’ interest in general and not meeting with Gamou. Yamada transfers to Subaruboshi High to break away from the chairman’s scrutiny, and takes on the title of “The Apostle of Sleep (眠りの使徒 Nemuri no Shito) as he gets the entire school under his control and has everyone act in the roles he assigns them. However, being able to speed up bodily functions of a person means that he can easily revive someone as well. He is eventually brought before the chairman by the Virgo Zodiarts and Hayami advises to him to brace himself for a scolding. To the principal’s surprise however, Gamou is rather delighted with Yamada’s performance in SBHS, praising Yamada’s work so far to be very individualistic and gives him full permission to do as he pleases.
Though Ryusei is only looking for the Aries Zodiarts under Tachibana’s orders initially, he sees a way to save Jiro in the said Zodiarts. As a result, against Tachibana’s orders, Ryusei decides to make a deal with Yamada, by killing Kamen Rider Fourze, to save Jiro. Honoring his end of the bargin, Yamada proceeds to orchestrate the Kamen Rider Club’s deaths when Ryusei arrives to save them before Gentaro overpowers the Aries Zodiarts as Kamen Rider Fourze Cosmic States. Enraged, the Aries Zodiarts briefly transforms into Aries Nova (アリエス・ノヴァ Ariesu Nova), with his horns changing shape while his eyes turn blue and his cape retracting. Though his full abilities in Supernova form are not seen, firing spheres of yellow energy at his opponent, the Aries Zodiarts is defeated by Kamen Rider Fourze’s Rider Super Galaxy Finish. As the resulting attack places him in a coma, Yamada’s Aries Switch is retrieved by the Virgo Zodiarts and given to Gamou, who then gives it to Tatsugami for safekeeping.
The kanji that make up his given name Tatsumori (竜守?) translate into “dragon guard”, referencing the dragon in the legend of the Golden Fleece of the ram Aries.

Tojiro Goto (五藤 東次郎 Gotō Tōjirō) is a recent transfer student to AGHS who happens to be an old friend of JK’s from junior high school. He is a rocker with a hearty appetite, though his guitar playing is terrible. Goto is found by Hayami, using his Eye of Laplace, to possess the potential to evolve from the Lyra Zodiarts (unnamed) into the Capricorn Zodiarts (カプリコーン・ゾディアーツ Kapurikōn Zodiātsu), and is given a Zodiarts Switch prior to evolving into the said Horoscopes member. Unlike other Horoscopes members, he bears no ill will to anyone and just wants to be big as a rocker. As the Capricorn Zodiarts, he is armed with an electric guitar like weapon called Multi-stringed Koto Uruk (多弦琴 ウルク Tagenkin Uruku) that is able to manipulate sound, generating devastating sonic shock waves and entrancing people with his music, as well as trapping people with a Cosmic Energy manifestation of the musical staff. The entranced people will go on a “high” for a period of time before suffering a serious adrenaline crash that can last for days. The Capricorn Zodiarts can also use his music to resonate with certain Switches, with Tatsugami setting up a theory that Goto can find the Core Switch. When Gamou hears the hypothesis, he is impressed and bestows the Supernova powers to the Capricorn Zodiarts to increase the chance that they may succeed in this task.
After becoming one of the Horoscopes, Goto tracks down JK to convince him to reform their band as the new Gene God Dark Night Carnival after discovering that JK is hosting the popular DJ Gene internet radio show, improving JK’s singing and his guitar playing through his Capricorn Zodiarts form’s powers. However, Goto really wants to use the radio show as a means to brainwash their listeners into becoming crazed fans, though it begins to weaken them overtime. When JK discovers this, he tries to cancel the program, but Goto reminds him of his father’s past, which changes his mind, and JK quits the Kamen Rider Club upon revealing they will have a live show a few days later. However, Gentaro, having been taught a song by JK’s father that he used to sing to his son when growing up, manages to get through to JK who realizes that he should not be attaining his dream like this. Despite Gentaro’s poor guitar skills, JK’s terrible singing and the Capricorn Zodiarts’ jeering, Gentaro manages to break his spell on the student body, whom all flee when they see a Zodiarts nearby, thus infuriating him. He battles Kamen Rider Fourze once more, but with JK’s return to Gentaro’s circle of friends, he is able to utilize Cosmic States once more and the Capricorn Zodiarts is defeated before he can even use the Supernova abilities Gamou gave him. Goto is then spirited away to Gamou’s headquarters where his Capricorn Switch is confiscated and his memory erased, rather than being banished to the Dark Nebula, as he confirmed the Core Switch is still active.
His surname is pronounced similarly to the English word “goat” (ゴート gōto). Additionally, his rock star name “God” is a reference to Kamen Rider X’s antagonists Secret Organization G.O.D., as JK’s namesake is Kamen Rider X’s Keisuke Jin.

Found by the Libra Zodiarts, Erin is given the means to evolve into the Aquarius Zodiarts (アクエリアス・ゾディアーツ Akueriasu Zodiātsu). As the Aquarius Zodiarts, she is armed with a whip called Nectar (ネクタル Nekutaru) and the vases of water on her shoulders can be used to heal herself or others, making her immune to even Limit Breaks from Kamen Rider Fourze Cosmic States unless both vases are shattered at almost the same time. She meets Gentaro and quickly befriends him, but is distressed after learning her new friend is also Kamen Rider Fourze, someone whom she is tasked to eliminate. Upon meeting Yuki during the Astronaut Selection Exam, Erin expresses utter disdain towards the girl as she reminds her of a colleague of her father’s, a people-person she sees has robbed her father of his last chance to go to space. Her disdain of Yuki grew further after a misunderstanding where she thought Yuki had sabotaged her in the exam. On the contrary, thanks to Yuki’s clever thinking, Erin is actually saved by Yuki instead. Though she eventually manages to make peace with Yuki, Erin states that they cannot be friends, due to her respect and dedication to Gamou as a Horoscopes member. These conflicting sentiments lead her to a conclusion that one of them must fall, which ultimately leads her to have a final showdown with Gentaro. She is eventually defeated when both vases on her shoulders are shattered, robbing her healing abilities once and for all. After being defeated by Fourze Cosmic States, the Virgo Zodiarts spirits Erin anyway to take her Aquarius Switch and erases her memory of the whole ordeal.

He hold steadfastly onto the school’s policies of allowing as much freedom as possible to the student body previously and constantly bickered with Sayaka over idealistic differences. This eventually indirectly led to her being injured and hospitalized and to everyone’s surprise, he lost his cool, seriously panicked and rushed to Sayaka’s side immediately after hearing the news from Shoko. With his newfound powers, motivated by his feelings for Sayaka under the delusion that he is doing it for the right reasons, Sugiura creates the Amanogawa Campus Bylaws, various rules that limit the individuality of the student body. As the Taurus Zodiarts, his main power is to force people into keeping with a contracted promise through the use of his scepter called Gu-anna (グアンナ Guanna) as well as taking people’s souls and turning them into loyal drones. He is also physically imposing, being both strong and fast in executing short range attacks. Sugiura nearly manages to get the entire school under his control before Gentaro gets Sayaka to convince Sugiura to break his hold, through her breaking a list of bylaws he imposed. Sugiura finally breaks down before her and Gentaro as he is incapable of punishing her for he terrorized the school for her sake in the first place. Though the Virgo Zodiarts offers him a final chance to redeem himself, the Taurus Zodiarts opts to fight the senior Horoscopes instead before being sent into the Dark Nebula. Though later revealed to be alive and in suspended animation within the M-BUS, Sugiura’s Taurus Switch is given to Gamou.

As a result, instead of melding into her Zodiarts body, the Gemini Switch causes the darkest aspects of her personality to be given a physical form that is identical to Yuki, but with a white mask that has blank expression on her face. Due to Yuki’s passion for space, Gamou sees Dark Yuki as a kindred spirit due to Yuki hearing the Presenter as he had. As the Gemini Zodiarts, she has an unorthodox fighting style and is armed with two types of exploding cards: Red cards known as Lynceus (リュンケウス Ryunkeus) that explode upon contact and the blue cards called Idas (イーダス Īdasu) that explode as the Horoscopes wills them to. Her Supernova ability allows the Gemini Zodiarts to produce a clone of herself that doubles as a living explosive. As a result of the separation, while acting on Yuki’s darkest desires, Dark Yuki reveals that she has a 24-hour window to usurp Yuki as the dominant aspect while the original self ceases to be. Though she succeeds in that retrospect, taking everything Yuki has for her own, Dark Yuki loses her dominance over Yuki thanks to Gentaro giving the girl a very strong memory to reverse the process. After Dark Yuki is destroyed, Tatsugami retrieves the Gemini Switch for Gamou.

Ran Kuroki (黒木 蘭 Kuroki Ran) is a new first-year student who is proficient in swimming and aikido. Though Gentaro tries to befriend her and her best friend Haru Kusao, she rejects his friendship outright due to a bad experience with senior students from her old middle school, that convinced her to trust no student older than her and to protect Haru. However, Ran’s ideals led to Haru to embrace being the Musca Zodiarts as he rejects her pleas to discard the Zodiarts Switch so she can protect him. When Haru throws away his friendship bracelet into the river, Ran goes to look for it on her own while refusing Gentaro’s help. But after Gentaro found the bracelet with the Kamen Rider Club’s help, having not told him what she iss looking for, Ran decides to put her trust in her new seniors. Ran is able to snap Haru out of his madness by apologizing for making him feel weak and useless through her protection, allowing Kamen Rider Fourze to destroy the Musca Zodiarts without any further psychological problems to deal with later. Afterwards, she and Haru both ask to join the Kamen Rider Club, and they are made provisional members until Haru is fully recovered.
Ran is later revealed to be the last predestined member of the Horoscopes: the Pisces Zodiarts (ピスケス・ゾディアーツ Pisukesu Zodiātsu) with the ability to liquify herself, swim through solid surfaces, and shoot high pressure water streams. Though Hayami attempted to keep her from becoming the Pisces Zodiarts, Ran is forced into transforming regardless when the Leo Zodiarts brutalizes the principal, as she sees no other way to get out of the situation and save the principal. Though a member of the Horoscopes, her Pisces Switch starts out colored blue to signify its immaturity. Additionally, Ran still considers herself a part of the Kamen Rider Club and resolves to use her newfound powers to fight Gamou and Tatsugami. However, this is all eventually revealed to be a setup, as the Hororscopes need her to activate the switch willingly, as the Pisces Switch will not awaken unless activated and used willingly by the Switcher. Principal Hayami has Tatsugami abduct Haru to force Ran into fully maturing her Pisces Switch before taking it from her. Ran is later taken to the hospital where Haru looks after her before she returns to school and becomes an official Kamen Rider Club member with him.

Saburo Kazeta (風田 三郎 Kazeta Saburō) young man who possesses psychic power that is the leader of the Monster League. Due to his immense psychic power, he has the ability to become an armored larva-like mutant known as Sanagiman (サナギマン). He and the Monster League was supported by a mysterious figure known as Kageto Banba who was actually manipulating him by giving him a device called the Zeber (ゼーバー Zēbā), which is thought to enhance psychic powers but is actually a device that stores his psychic energy.
