9. Tiger Undead from Blade
8. Nobuhiko Akizuki (Shadowmoon) from Black and Black RX
7. Masato Kusaka (Kamen Rider Kaixa) from Faiz
7(originally). Zanki from Hibiki
Boy am I stupid, I completely lost the list I wrote and forgot who number 7 was. Well thanks to Fantasy Leader mentioning him I finally remembered. Zanki was Todoroki's teacher and soon he had to retire because his body was starting to give in from all the time he was fighting. We also see how he was injured from before by his own teacher named Shuki. Overall when he got back into action during the Shuki arc it was awesome to see him striking down monsters. One day though he was overwhelmed by the numbers of monsters and they soon killed him. Luckily though Zanki used an old spell on him so that he would become an immortal! His soul will stay in his body until he is happy. He sticks around because of Todoroki being unable to walk. One day Zanki goes back into battle and tells Torodoki the only way to stop him is by walking on his own. A mircale happens as Torodoki is able to walk and fights along his master. After the fight the two play on their guitars as Zanki gives him his praise and he vanishes.
6.Shinji (Kamen Rider Ryuki)
Unlike many other riders he fought in the war to stop the monsters and to prevent fighting between the other riders. Throughout everything though he tries to keep close bonds with other riders even though some wanted to kill him! He sees many people die like Miyuki and this pushes him further to be a hero as he soon sees that to stop the war he must win. In the end he tries to protect a little girl from a monster as he is stabbed in the back by it. After a fight with Ren he starts to become weak as he was losing too much blood. He dies holding Ren's hand and he his last wish to have Ren continue to live on and leaves Ren devastated.
5. Mitsuru Sano (Kamen Rider Imperer) from Ryuki
4. Kirihiko Sudo from Double
3. Otoya Kurenai from Kiva
2. Tsurugi Kamishiro (Kamen Rider Sasword) from Kabuto
1. Philip from Double
Again Double takes the first place spot and I bet you saw this coming. Can you blame me though its Philip! He was partners with Shotaro ever since they begun to fight as Double. Shotaro promised to protect him because of the death of his master, Sokichi. They had their issues from time to time, but the two made a great bond as partners as they fought together throughout the whole series. Even when the truth was revealed about him slowly vanishing from using the Gaia Memories he still wanted to fight. In the end after the battle against Utopia, Philip tries to deactivate the transformation. Shotaro though does it though, but before he does he starts to cry, but still tells Philip that he isn't. When all is done though when Philip starts to vanish away he begins to cry as well. There was also the gift he had for Shotaro and it was the Lost Driver with a blank book, but with one final message. I mean it this scene just got me crying so easily the mood was just so heavy and seeing Shotaro just breaking down just got me so much. Overall that scene was just the most saddest moment and I still think Double was originally going to end like that. It doesn't matter that Philip came back the scene is still depressing because of how Shotaro sees his partner going away. Remember always leave comments if you want to, and I need some tissues now :(
