The Kamen Rider 555 summer movie.

Double featured with Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger DELUXE: Abare Summer wa Kinkinchuu!


  • The battle reaches its climax. The legend of the savior about the Emperor's Belt.
  • The true legend of the savior. The Rider troopers deploy. The crusade finally begins.


  • Under Smart Brain's control, the Orphenoch run the world while humans are on the run. Two new Rider Gears are created to threaten the humans that they are unstoppable.
  • Faiz, Inui Takumi, is presumably dead after he was assaulted by an army of Riotroopers.
  • Rumors of Faiz is the only savior spread across to the remaining humans in order to bring hope to them: Someday Faiz will awake, there will be peace in the world like before.
  • With Takumi gone, Kiba is on a quest to seek the coexist between humans and Orphenoch.
  • Takumi returns, reuniting with Mari and Kiba.
  • Mari (Smart Lady's impersonation) betrays Kiba, forcing him to witness the death of both Kaidou and Yuka. So, Kiba abandons his ideals and fights Takumi as Kamen Rider Oga.
  • Takumi promises Kiba that he will take up his ideals in his stead.

Kamen Riders

Riotroopers (ライオトルーパー)

  • An army of Riders following Smart Brain's orders to eliminate the humans.

Smart Brain creates two Rider Gears codenamed as Emperor's Belt. Kamen Rider Psyga (仮面ライダーサイガ)

  • Based on the Greek letter Psi Ψ.

Kamen Rider Oga (仮面ライダーオーガ)

  • Alternate spellings are Ouga, Orga.
  • Based on the Greek letter Omega Ω. The name is probably a shortened version of Omega, O__ga. It's pronunciation is also like the O-Medals from Kamen Rider OOO, which would fit in with the O theme of the Rider. His activation code is 000, which also looks like O's.
  • There is a theory the name should be Ouga, which uses the kanji 王我 which mean "ruler" and "self". Since these are called the Emperor's Belts, there is some credibility to this theory. If this were the case, then Psyga would be "I am Psi" and Oga would be "I am O(mega)" or "I am the king" depending on one's interpretation.

Kamen Rider Faiz Blaster Form (仮面ライダーファイズ ブラスターフォーム)

  • Faiz's final form. To achieve this form, Faiz must enter the "555" code on the Faiz Blaster and plug in the Faiz Phone into the weapon itself.

Song Used

Justiφ's -Accel Mix-
Lyrics: Fujibayashi Shoko
Composer: Sato Kazuto
Arranger: Miyake Kazunori
Singer: ISSA (DA PUMP)


  • Murakami is a head in a jar.
  • Delta, Hanagata, the Lucky Clover, and the Ryuusei School don't appear and aren't mentioned.
  • Mari calls Kusaka as Masato.
  • Kiba and Yuka's Orphenoch form have a different design.
  • Kaidou and Yuka are in love.
  • Keitarou drinks a bottle of Henshin One Shot and successfully transforms into Kaixa.
  • Because the Orphenoch taking control of the world, Smart Brain heavily promotes brand products around the city. Words such as Distribution, Computing, Finance, Mobile Technology, and Beverage appear on the advertising banners and flyers.
    • Takumi and Kusaka's motorcycle helmets have Smart Brian Motors stickers covering the Honda logo.
    • Filming took place at the Saitama Super Arena. The word "Smart Brain Super Arena" was painted on the roof of the Saitama building.
  • Despite being an alternate world story, the movie reveals Takumi being an Orphenoch. This is not revealed on the TV series until episode 34, which aired on September 21st 2003, almost a full month after the movie came out. So people who saw the movie had some foreknowledge of what was to come on the TV series.
  • The movie makes a debut of Faiz's Blaster Form. This form doesn't appear on the TV series until episode 39, which aired on October 26th 2003.
  • An army of Riotroopers appear in the movie. They appear in a group of six Riders later in the TV series.

Actor Trivia

  • Peter Ho is a American-Taiwanese actor. He is the second non-Japanese actor to play a Kamen Rider role. In the movie, his character mostly speaks English instead of Japanese.
  • Taguchi Kazumasa played Kouno Kouji on Kamen Rider Agito.
  • Tsunogae Kazue played Kanzaki Sanako (Yui's aunt) on Kamen Rider Ryuki.
  • Tsuda Kanji (Mina's father) was on Ryuki as well. He played Ookubo Daisuke, Editor-in-Chief of ORE Journal.
  • Shida Mirai (Young Mina) appeared on Ryuki Ep 49 where she was saved by Shinji during the massive attack on the city launched by the Raydragoons Mirror Monsters.

Guinness World Record

  • At the time, the film had the most extras in the cast for a single movie. There were 10,000 extras at the Saitama Super Arena. This was out of a total of 90,000 applicants.
  • In the end credits, their names spell "Thank you!" in the theatrical cut and "See you again!" in the director's cut.

Biblical references

The movie's title, Paradise Lost, is directly taken from an epic poem about the fall of man from the Bible. There is talk of Faiz being a savior, who will come back to life and bring peace to the world. This is unlike Jesus being the Messiah and dying for our sins only to be brought back to life. There's also the Mari/Mary similarity.
