仮面ライダー龍騎 Official subtitle is Masked Rider Ryuki. Ryuu normally uses a long u.
The kanji in Ryuki are "dragon" and "ride". The "ride" kanji is the first one in knight/kishi 騎士, which is probably how the American adaptation Kamen Rider Dragon Knight came up with its name.

February 3, 2002 (2002-02-03) - January 19, 2003 (2003-01-19) (50 episodes)

Aired on Super Hero Time alongside Hyakujyu Sentai GaoRanger and Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger.

Catchphrase:

If you do not fight, you will not survive!
(戦わなければ生き残れない!)

On the Chronology[edit]

Home Video Release[edit]

Ryuki was the third Heisei Rider to have its TV series rereleased in Blu-ray format.

Box 1: July 11, 2014 (2014-07-11)
Box 2: September 12, 2014 (2014-09-12)
Box 3: November 7, 2014 (2014-11-07)

Trivia[edit]

  • Ryuki is the first Kamen Rider series to have so many multiple Riders.
  • While it's not special now, at the time, it was unheard of for there to be so many Riders who fought each other in this way. There was even some fan backlash who felt Ryuki strayed too much from the standard Rider formula.
  • Only ten Riders appeared in the series. The Riders that are not featured, appeared in the movie and the TV special episode.
  • The first Rider series to use a card theme. Is followed by Kamen Rider Blade just two years later in 2004 and Kamen Rider Decade seven years later in 2009.

American Remake[edit]

  • Battle footages of Ryuki were used to create the American show, Kamen Rider Dragon Knight.
  • When the show was aired on Japan, Matsuda Satoshi voiced Len / Kamen Rider Wing Knight; the American counterpart of his Ryuki role, Akiyama Ren / Kamen Rider Knight.
