This article is about a character from Kamen Rider Shinobi
Ken Watanabe (Watanabe Ken) is a guardian of the Imperial House of Japan, tasked to protect and serve Himiko. For this purpose, he assumes the secret identity of Kamen Rider Shinobi(仮面ライダーシノビ Kamen Raidā Shinobi).
As Kamen Rider Shinobi Edit
Kamen Rider Shinobi's forms, known as "Kei" (形 Kei, lit "Form"), grant him a variety of powers, like increased defense and super speed. Some of the Kei are element-powered (Rekka, Koutetsu), while others work best under certain conditions (i,e. Mangetsu, Shingetsu).
Each Kei is accessed by using its corresponding Ninjutsu Scroll with the Ninjutsu Driver.
Mangetsu Shinobi Kei
Mangetsu Shinobi Kei (満月シノビ形 Mangetsu Shinobi Kei lit "Full Moon Shinobi Form") is Shinobi's default Kei, accessed with the Mangetsu Shinobi Scroll. His strength and defense are balanced, yet he possesses super-speed due to him being a ninja. However, this Kei works better at night than it does at daylight, as his overall power increases two-fold during night time; moreover, this Kei get even stronger under a full moon, hence its name.
Rekka Shinobi Kei
Rekka Shinobi Kei (烈火シノビ形 Rekka Shinobi Kei lit "Wild Fire Shinobi Form") is Shinobi's strenght-focused Kei, accessed with the Rekka Shinobi Scroll. In this Kei, Shinobi has far greater strength than his other standard Kei, yet he has lower defense than them. Additionally, this Kei grants shinobi the ability of pyrokinesis, allowing him to control fire for close and ranged attacks.
