Kamen Rider Chaser

ChaserGaidenTab

Chase, also known as Roidmude 000 was the first Roidmude created by Krim Steinbelt to carry out acts of justice as Kamen Rider Protoshift. However, he suffered amnesia and lost his memories during a battle as Kamen Rider Protoshift. He was found by Heart and Brain becoming the Grim Reaper to combat rogue Roidmudes and the second Shift, becoming Machine Chaser. After regaining his memories and finding hope of saving humanity with the help of Dianca Ride healing him with the Mad Doctor Shift Car, he aligns himself once more to protect humanity from the Roidmudes, becoming Kamen Rider Chaser.

History

As Protoshift

Chase was a unique Roidmude created by Krim Steinbelt that was programmed with an infallible sense of justice. His designation was labeled as Proto-Zero, with the number 000 on his number plate. Due to him being a prototype, Proto-Zero was deactivated for a period of time. However, when the other 108 Roidmudes created by Gord Ride were awakened, Proto-Zero was reactivated again by Krim, now having become the Shift Driver. Proto-Zero was thus tasked to use the Shift Driver to become Protodrive, to protect the humans and destroy the Roidmudes.

As Machine Chaser

Chase appears before Heart and Brain after the destruction of the Iron Roidmude at the hands of Dash Roberts, the new Kamen Rider Shift. He is sent to find the one who destroyed the Roidmude and eliminate him.

After he and his comrades incapacitate and gained the rogue Roidmude 051's Core, Chase face Drive for the first time, demonstrating his abilities which Mr. Belt noting it to that of Protoshift. Soon, he would face the Kamen Rider again during the incidents of the Paint Roidmude, Crush Roidmude, and Scooper Roidmude. However, out of all the conflicts, Chase began to question himself ever since he saw Dianca for the first time when she shielded an untransformed Dash from being killed, causing him to be fixated on her. Nonetheless, whenever he faced Shift, he was always defeated after Shift's arsenal grew over time.

Discovered past and re-brainwashed

Chase began to receive memories of rescuing Chase and the voice of Krim Steinbelt. As the Ride Macher and Ride Chaser combined into the Ride Crosser for the first time, Chase wondered why, until Brain came forward and explained that he was the warrior who fought the Roidmudes during the Global Freeze, Protoshift. With Chase's mind in ruins, Brain was going to dispose of him, however, Medic came up with a sinister plan: brainwashing Chase, making him robotic and emotionless. In this state, Chase became a ruthless killer, even to humans (a moral line that he would not cross).

As Kamen Rider Chaser

Despite regaining his memories, Chase was still lost: He's torn between the Roidmudes and the Kamen Rider sides of his nature. Shinnosuke attacked Heart with Drive Type Dead Heat for interfering with their talk. Just when Shinnosuke was about to win, Chaser transformed and attacked Dash, injuring him critically on his right hand. However, Chase started to shake for his regret of harming a human, the only thing he wanted to avoid due to his programming. He became frustrated because he couldn't decide what is the best for him since not only does he not want to injure humans, he also can't take seeing Heart being killed. Heart noticed the confusion that Chase was showing, deeming him useless as he cannot decide his own path. Distraught, Heart returns Chase's Speed Prototype Shift Car, leaving him. Soon, while Chase was still wandering around near the river, Dianca came to him and brought him a small briefcase which contained a Mach Driver Flame and the Signal Chaser. With that, Chase finally decided to redeem himself once more as Kamen Rider Chaser, rescuing Dianca and destroyed the Sword Roidmude without killing its host. Afterwards, unknown to him not all people are glad to learn of his return, though only Go still hates him. He is later wandering around the city still wondering if this is for the best.

When brainwashed and fighting for the Roidmudes, Chase transforms into Machine Chaser, where he is armed with the Chaser Breaker and drives the Ride Chaser. Since both Heart and Brain only wanted Chase to incapacitate rogue Roidmudes instead of fully destroying them, his arsenal as well was made not to kill their Cores, a trait that was shared from his first appearance as Protoshift.

This form is seen briefly before Chase's first transformation into Kamen Rider Chaser and is indeed still available to be accessed by Chase via the Chaser Breaker despite retiring it in favor of becoming a Kamen Rider again, as demonstrated when he became Machine Chaser once more to save Axel from Gold Shift following the destruction of his Signal Driver Flame.

Super

SUPER-CHASER

Super Machine Chaser

Super Machine Chaser is Machine Chaser's gold-colored super form, accessed through the use of the gold-colored Rhino Super Viral Core in the Chaser Breaker. While in this form, the blade part of the Viral Core extends outwards, allowing Chaser to wield the Chaser Breaker as a blade-like weapon, which is strong enough to cut even a Roidmude's arm off.

Kamen Rider

Shift Driver

Protoshift
PROTP-DRIVE

Kamen Rider Protoshift

  • Height: 194 cm
  • Weight: 114 kg

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 4.1 t.
  • Kicking power: 5.9 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 28 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 6.1 sec. (2.1 sec. at full speed)

Type Speed (Proto) is Shift's concept sports car-based form, which is accessed through the Proto Shift Car. Being a prototype version of the current Shift's Type Speed, it is aesthetically identical albeit without the spoiler piece on his head and bears the Archetype Gear, which is an incomplete version of the Speed Tire Module, showing lots of circuitry as a sign of the incomplete state the Rider Form was in. Despite the Speed Tire Module's unfinished appearance, it still provides Shift with super speed once he lifts the Proto Shift Car three times.

By inserting a Viral Core into the Shift Brace, Shiftk can read the memories of defeated Attack-Bots, which is projected through his Low Beam Eye visor. The only defect of Proto Form is that it lacks the ability to destroy Cores because of its status as a prototype.

This form has one finisher.

  • Shift Drive's Full Throttle finisher:
    • Speedrop (Proto): Protoshift uses the prototype version of Speedrop, where Shift floats into the air before he kicks and destroys the enemy.


Signal Driver

Chaser
KRDr-Chaser

Kamen Rider Chaser

  • Height: 199.5 cm
  • Weight: 114 kg

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 19.7 t.
  • Kicking power: 25.8 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 43.1 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 3.0 sec.

Accessed through the Chaser Signal Bike, Chaser's default motorcycle-based form bears the Wheeler Dynamics on his back, which can also be used as a shield if he ever gets attacked from behind.

Following his Machine Chaser form's ability to induce a Super Shift, Chaser's suit is powered by the Core Driviar-ONE, which enables him to use said ability as well.

In this form, Chaser receives a significant boost in stats compared to his Machine Chaser form; being stronger than both Shift Dead Heat and Deadheat Mach, as well as having a running speed that is just mere seconds faster than either of them. He also has a stronger punching power than Drive Type Formula and his jumping height is almost as high as the aforementioned form.

Unlike Signal, who summons his Front Wheel Shooter by hitting the Boost Igniter four times, Mech is able to summon his Signal Ax from his Ride Chaser through the will of mind. He also retains the Break Gunner as a sidearm weapon.

This form has three finishers.

  • Signal Driver's Full Throttle finisher:
    • Chaser Wrecking End: The finisher has two variations:
      • Chaser focuses power into his right leg, making it glow purple as he slams into the enemy with a Flying Side Kick, then releases a Scissor Kick before launching them away.
      • The second version has Chaser finishing off an enemy directly with a Flying Side Kick.
  • Signal Ax finisher:
    • Across Breaker: This attack has three variations.
      • Chaser swings the Signal-Ax several times, with the path of his swing seconds before each swing generating black-and-white tracks that resemble a crosswalk. He can also do it just once to create an instant swinging path.
      • Chaser flies up and uses the ingal-Ax to strike the enemy with a spin slash.
  • Chaser Breaker finisher:
    • Super Blade: Chaser fires several golden energy blast from the Chaser Breaker, then stabs his opponent with the blade part of the Rhino Super Viral Core.


Chaser Fast
Chaser Hayai

Chaser Fast

  • Height: 199.5 cm
  • Weight: 114 kg

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 19.7 t.
  • Kicking power: 25.8 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 43.1 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 3 sec.

The concept sports car-based Shift Speed Prototype Car allows Chaser to upgrade himself into Chaser Fast, which causes the Wheeler Dynamics on his back to rotate uncontrollably.

In this mode, Chaser gains the ability to move at short bursts of high acceleration in speed and perform attacks in rapid succession. Since this is not a true Tire Exchange, most likely due to the Shift Car used being a prototype, the stat gains are non-apparent, if any, aside from the short burst of speed.

This form has one finisher.

  • Signal Ax finisher:
    • Across Breaker: It consists of Chaser first performing a variation of Protoshift/Shift's Turbo Smash attack where he barrages an enemy with enhanced speed before utilizing his Signal-Ax's Across Breaker finisher.

Proto-Zero

Roidmude

ROIDMUDE-000

Proto-Zero

  • Height: 195 cm
  • Weight: 95 kg

Chase's true identity is that of a Roidmude. This is the form he assumed outside of Protoshift during his time with Krim Steinbelt. This form would re-appear for the first time when Chase has memory lapsing issues with his past as Protoshift and his present-retooling as Machine Chaser. When Chase was retooled once more by Medic, Chase became an "Advanced Roidmude" with the power to generate a greater Heavy Acceleration. Though this is Chase's Roidmude form, he rarely uses the form, remaining in his human form.

Core

Chaser Core

Core (000)

The Core is the basic essence or 'soul' of the Roidmude. Having been finally defeated as Machine Chaser by Shift's new Type Formula with the Trailer-Cannon, Chase was seemingly destroyed as he exploded with what was observed by Dash as his Core shattering as well. However, later on, Chase was shown to have somehow survived his apparent destruction when he was found by Dianca, injured but alive. However, his core finally shattered when Chase self-destructed to save Axel from Gold Shift.
