Background[edit]

Deneb came to the present times along with Kai and other Imagins. Sakurai had been desperately fighting by himself as Zeronos Altair Form against Kai's forces. Seeing that made Deneb wanted to help him, resulted in him betraying Kai and forming a contract with Sakurai. Sakurai's wish is for Deneb to fight with his past self, Yuuto. Following Sakurai's escape into the time gaps after the "lake incident", Deneb brought ZeroLiner and the Zeronos cards to Yuuto and explained the situation with the Imagins. By this event order, Deneb is actually the first Imagin to possess and fight with a Rider in this series.

  • "Deneb" is named after the Deneb star in the constellation Cygnus. Together with the Vega star in the constellation Lyra and Altair star in constellation Aquila, the three stars form the spaced asterism called the Summer Triangle.

Image

  • Deneb's image is based on Musashibou Benkei (武蔵坊弁慶), a warrior monk made famous by his loyalty and honour.
  • According to the Chinese Qi Xi festival folklore story inspired by the Summer Triangle, "The Princess and the Cowherd", Niulang (Chinese: 牛郎, the cowherd) and Zhinü (Chinese: 织女, the weaver girl) were lovers that were separated by the the galactic river, and were allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh month on the magpie bridge over river.
