The primary antagonists of Kamen Rider Wizard. They are led by Wiseman. They are being born from humans that have high magic potential known as Gates. When a Gate is put into despair, they give birth to a Phantom which they are not considered to be human anymore. They assume the human form they were born from but the human itself exists no more. The current goal of the Phantoms is to create more Phantoms so Wiseman can hold a Sabbath.

The absolute law that all Phantoms must follow is that they can't kill a Gate which is akin of killing a Phantom before it's born. Any Phantom who breaks this law is sentenced to execution. Also Phantoms do not have a sense of taste.

Phantom form is based on the monster Carbuncle, which has a jewel in its head and a rabbit-like body. Wiseman also has white skin and a jewel in his body. A Carbuncle is also the name of a gemstone and a skin infection.

Phantom Phoenix


  • Yuugo ユウゴ - played by Atsumi
  • First appearance: Episode 1
His weapon is named Catastrophe カタストロフ.
Usually accompanies Misa with her duties and acts as surivellence on Wiseman's orders. He's loose and not as professional as Misa. He reveals that sometimes he can be a hothead and will just lose it when enough stress is put on him.
After Gnome was defeated, he became very frustated with Wizard and demending to directly bring Gates to despair, After Misa told him he was not allow to interfere directly, he went to Wiseman to get permission directly which he allow it and gave him a plan to bring Itou Hiroki to despair. Yuugo attacked Itou Mikiko and confronted Wizard. He managed to overpower Wizard easily. He proceed to attack Hiroki's father but Wizard manage to save him from further injury. Using the power of Flame Dragon Style, Wizard was able to defeat Phoenix but unknowingly he was able to resurrect himself.
While trying to protect Naoki, Haruto encounters a resurrected Phoenix was surprised by it. On Christmas Eve, Phoenix bumps into Tatsurou which Medusa realized that he was a Gate. So she gave him permission to drive him into despair and birth a new Phantom. He managed to accomplish this by burning Tatsurou's presents to the children in the orphanage. Wizard tries to use Flame Dragon to defeat Phoenix like last time but this time, Phoenix was able withstand the attack. Wizard was able to defeat Phoenix with a combination of Blizzard and Water Slash Strike to freeze him and finishing him off with Dragon's Tail. After defeating Tatsurou's Phantom in the Underworld, Wizard sees Phoenix being resurrected from the ice shards.
During a very stormy night, Phoenix beats up random drunks which Rinko sees him screaming out in the rain. He is currently frustrated with being unable to attack Wizard due to Wiseman saying so. Rinko investigates Phoenix and discovers he used to be a worker at a flower shop who wanted his own flower shop. Also he was a gentle soul unlike the rampaging, hateful Phoenix now. After being called a savage beast and unable to take out his anger on Beelzebub, Phoenix sees Rinko at the flower shop and decides to tail her. She eventually arrives at Yuugo's old apartment which he meets her face to face. Phoenix tells Rinko that he's a Phantom and mentions about Beelzebub's servants controlling people. After Rinko removes all of Beelzebub's servants, she returns to Phoenix's place in order to get him to fight the other Phantoms on the side of good. Rinko thought she was getting through to Phoenix but ended up making Phoenix not caring about Wiseman's agenda anymore and wants to rampage. He emits an aura of fire that knocks out Rinko.
Sora saves Rinko and uses her as bait to draw out Wizard. While waiting for Wizard, he fights Medusa and was turned to stone but he manages to break the spell. That causes Medusa to run off. He confronts Wizard once again which he was able to hold off Water Dragon form but was defeated with a combination of Hurricane Dragon's Kick Strike and Slash Strike. Unlike the previous defeats, Phoenix was able to regenerate very quickly and overcame Land Dragon's Gravity attack. Beast shows up and distracts Phoenix while Wizard leaves with Rinko. Then Phoenix begins to rampage to draw out Wizard but Beast shows up again. Disappointed that Beast was there instead of Wizard, Phoenix has Beast fight some Ghuls and give Wizard a message to fight him at the place they first fought. The following day, Phoenix and Wizard had their battle which Wizard used the full power of the Drago Timer to become All Dragon and sent Phoenix to the sun where he would constantly die and resurrect himself in a never-ending cycle.
His Phantom powers allow him to emit Hellfire which can withstand Wizard's Water Style attacks but unable to overcome Flame Dragon's flame. He can create bird like projectiles. He can resurrect himself from attacks that normally be death to other Phantoms. He has a heavy sword as a weapon called the Catastrophe which he can channel Hellfire into it. He can create a set of wings and extend them for a fiery attack.
In human form he wears an armlet on his right arm that matches Misa's.
Maybe his name is short for yuugou/fusion?

Phantom Gremlin


  • Sora ソラ - played by Maeyama Takahisa
  • First appearance: Episode 18
  • Name Revealed: Episode 22 (Was known as Mysterious Youth previously)
  • Phantom Form Revealed: Episode 23
  • His scissor blades are called Rapture ラプチャー.

Not much is known about Sora at this time. He appeared to Koyomi who identified him as a Phantom which he gave her a magic stone to give to Wizard. He saves Rinko from Phoenix and suggested to him that he should use her as bait to draw out Wizard. He even helps Phoenix to draw out Wizard by giving Shunpei Rinko's badge and later tells Haruto where Rinko was. Sora even tells Medusa about Phoenix not caring about the Wiseman's agenda even though he tells Phoenix he doesn't like Wiseman's agenda himself. After Phoenix was forced into the sun by Wizard, Sora offered his services to Medusa but she does not trust him. Then Sora revealed his Phantom form as Gremlin.

Sora helps out Weretiger to bring Nitou's grandmother into despair by kidnapping Shunpei. He manages to use Griffon for his own use when he planted it in one of Medusa's lairs while keeping Weretiger's location a secret. After tangling with Wizard and Beast, he abandons Weretiger after it was boring to him. Gremlin helps Medusa with bringing Takako to despair while Medusa was with her sister. He later reveals to Beast and Wizard that Mayu was a gate and later rushes to the fight between Medusa and Wizard to see the result.

Gremlin has shown incredible speed and agility but also he is able to appear in and out of solid objects particularity the ground and walls. He wields dual swords which the set is refer to as Rapture.

Sora has probably been scouting Haruto and his friends for some time with saying Koyomi is a puppet and Shunpei as Haruto's assistant. He constantly chews and blows bubblegum and usually says "HELLOOOOO~". Sora uses the human names of Phoenix and Medusa along with not liking being called a Phantom.

Trivia - Sora's name means Sky in Japanese. One of the first examples of a Gremlin in modern culture is the one famously on the wing of an airplane, terrorizing a paranoid passenger in a Twilight Zone episode. Airplane, sky, sora. Also, the actor for Gremlin was given a stuffed Gizmo toy from the movie Gremlins by the Wizard staff.

In episode 34, his name is revealed to be Takigawa Sora 滝川空. Takigawa means "rapids, rushing water". As a human, he was a stylist, which explains why his weapons as Gremlin combine into scissors.

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details about The last episode follow.

It turns out that Gremlin tells everyone to call him Sora, because he really genuinely hates being a Phantom. His ultimate goal is to steal the Philosopher's Stone and to turn into a human again. When Wizard calls him Gremlin in the last episode, he becomes enraged.

He would constantly try to chop off the hands of Takagi so he couldn't play the piano. His final attempt to bring Takagi to despair consisted of using Ghuls to attack the music hall where the contest was being held. He was defeated by Wizard's Hurricane Slash Strike.

Haruto shows up and reveals to Nitou that the fortune teller is a Phantom but Haruto was too weaken to transform into Wizard due to the poison. Nitou transforms into Kamen Rider Beast and was too poisoned by Manticore. The poison meant nothing to Beast as he uses Dolphi's power to heal himself and Haruto of the poison.
