Souji Tendou is a mysterious, quiet 21-year old man who often seems to follow monk-like philosophies of peace. His name literally means "Path of Heaven""Ruler of All"and he always uses it to introduce himselfTendou often spouts amazingly appropriate zen-like phrases he supposedly learned from his grandmother, prefacing them with "Grandmother used to say..." He also often does a 'point to the sky' pose, usually after he defeats a Worm or introduces himself. Tendou has no actual job and does not attend college because he believes that he is destined for something bigger (which is becoming Kabuto). Despite having many talents (from cooking to hairstyling to excelling at various sports to the extent that he can handle entire teams alone), he is usually uninterested in pursuing anything until his belt activates. He calls himself a "National Treasure" and "Universal Treasure". Tendou stays in a big home with his little sister Juka. Because of his abilities and outlook, combined with his talent of being a step ahead of those around him, Tendou is somewhat rude, and exceedingly arrogant at first glance. However, this serious personality holds back the caring emotions he has for others.

Apollo Geist: This defeat is regrettable, but...
Apollo Geist: warriors and fighting and ambitions are just like the lot of you….
Kabuto: …Just what is Juda?
Apollo Geist: He's merely a scientist…
Apollo Geist: If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't be able to cross time.
Apollo Geist: That's why we follow every one of his rules.
Kabuto: Rules….?
Apollo Geist: We are to come out here and beat every Rider until the last one, and the organization...

Judah: You all are an existence that will become a turning point in history.
Judah: If they disappear all at once, I wonder what will happen…..!?
Judah: I want to know that….I want to know, and it's unbearable!
Kabuto: Grandmother said this…
Kabuto: "One that drowns in oneself will eventually fall to darkness."

Ouja: You don't need a reason or purpose. Just shut up and fight.
Kabuto: I don't take orders from others. I decide the path I walk on.

Kabuto: Like I said, I decide the path I walk on.
Kabuto: I walk the path of heaven, the man who will rule everything.
After the battle
Ouja: Fighting really is great….it's thrilling, isn't it…..

Kabuto: The one who satisfied you is me.
Ouja: Who are you, that I should be thanking YOU…..

KickHopper: No, because of you I came to know the world of darkness….
KickHopper: And I obtained an irreplaceable partner as well….
PunchHopper: Bro….!
KickHopper: But I have no choice but to defeat you…!
KickHopper: If you hold a grudge, wouldn't it be better to hold it against us?
KickHopper: Either way, we can't walk the path of the sun!
PunchHopper: I'll disgrace you….we don't need the sun….!!

Eternal: ….Because there's still something I must do!
Kabuto: Something you must do….?
Eternal: Fuuto…, all humans….
Eternal: will be changed, like me, into immortal monsters of NEVER!
Kabuto: Walking the path of people even when you are no longer human is a noble thing to do.
Kabuto: However, you have strayed from the path of people, and are a demon.
Kabuto: Demons must be put to judgment.
Eternal: And someone like you is fit to judge me?
Kabuto: Why yes. I am the man who walks the path of heaven.
After the batlle

Before the battle

Core: I am a warrior who feeds on hearts of darkness!!

Core: My name is…Kamen Rider Core!!!
Core: This is the horrifying power of the Kamen Riders!!
Kabuto: As far as I know…
Kabuto: The Kamen Riders were originally proud warriors.
Kabuto: Of course, this includes me as well.
Kabuto: They never show their sadness on the outside.
Kabuto: And that doesn't turn into hatred….!!
After the battle
Core: I can't afford to lose!
Core: I have obtained all of the Kamen Riders' memories, I……!!
Core: Not to the likes of you!!!
Kabuto: If you really obtained all the Rider's memories,
Kabuto: then my grandmother's words would have also entered your head.
Kabuto: You've strayed from the path by neglecting those teachings. That's not good.
Kabuto: That man called Goura is next…….

World 6: Kabuto vs Dinosaur Greeed
Before the battle

Dinosaur Greeed: ….Oh, Mr. Goura. Is it finally my turn?
Goura: Yeah. Just as I explained earlier.
Goura: If you want a complete resurrection, defeat them.
Dinosaur Greeed: Well then, that is the reason, so….
Dinosaur Greeed: Kamen Riders. I bid you a good end…..
Kabuto: Grandmother said this:
Kabuto: "The whisper of the devil can sometimes sound like an angel's voice."
Kabuto: His words are more like the devil's. It's better you don't believe them.
Dinosaur Greeed: That may be so…..however….
Dinosaur Greeed: That man is certainly holding my life.
Dinosaur Greeed: Therefore, I do not exist. Freedom of choice, as it's called.
Kabuto: I see…Well then, I have no choice.
Kabuto: If you've been deceived even knowing it's the devil's voice,
Kabuto: then that's your own sin.
After the battle
Dinosaur Greeed: Again, I am doomed to end.
Dinosaur Greeed: And so, I am again com….plete…..
Kabuto: Of course, that's what happens when you're deceived by the devil.
Kabuto: A deceiving devil is definitely a heavier sin.
Kabuto: Wait for me, Goura. I'm going to teach you the heaven's reason.

World 6: Kabuto vs Goura
After the first battle

Goura: It can't be…! Why can't they defeat them!?
Goura: Why must my greatest soldiers be defeated!?
Kabuto: Grandmother said this:
Kabuto: "My evolution is faster than the light.
Kabuto: Nothing in the universe can keep up with my evolution."
Kabuto: In other words, I evolve while fighting.
Kabuto: Your words of "greatest" are meaningless.
Goura: I won't accept that!! I can't accept things like defeat!!
Goura: The monsters from all the organizations…Should I synthesize them…
Goura: the terrifying incarnation of evil….heheh….will be born!!!
Goura: What is this!? Uwoooooooah!!
Out-Of-Control Goura: Power…..overflowing with power….!!!
Out-Of-Control Goura: Kamen…..Rider!! Disappear, Kamen Rider!!!
Kabuto: Nothing can make my brilliance disappear.


  • Kabuto is one of the few Main Riders who doesn't have access to all of his forms. The missing Form is Mask Form which is understandable as Mask Form lacks any special abilities like Gatack's Mask Form.
