Best Kamen Rider Series

The Top Ten

1 Kamen Rider Gaim

A bizarre concept with an excellent execution. A truly addicting grim story that wants you to learn more about it's characters, environments and the interactions that occur within it. There is nothing more to say than to "Just live more." (Although they milked the series in tons of movies that do not compare to the series.)

Amazing. Worth every second I spent watching it. 10/10.

Samurai concept, well defined transformations, good designed costumes, well balanced power ceiling, good CG compared to other previous generations, actors are good looking, everything is just awesome.

Start silly, ends dark
has a very good story development

2 Kamen Rider OOO Kamen Rider OOO

A fun, entertaining and very emotional start to the series. I had never watched Kamen Rider before and then I watched this. Also the jingles are catchy

Light hearted and a decent story.. The fact that the lead hero is well... a hobo is hilarious

Currently watching this and it's great. - PerfectImpulseX

Eiji and Ankh's dynamic is great, and the consistent adherence to theme of desire and greed is well done.

The best episodes, overall, from acting to execution, originality, cinematics, story, design. All the ideas has an impact. The best formula exist in this kamen rider (series)

The best transformation.

The baddest badass of all the Kamen Riders

4 Kamen Rider Faiz

Faiz is too underrated. This series is such a gorgeous, magnificent piece of art. It's overall designs and characters are fleshed out really great. The story is also well written. It started lighthearted(well, not really but really close to that point) then it got darker and more badass through the episodes.

Still be the best... Ever.

Best storyline, when the protagonist reveal to be the monster is a masterpiece.
Too bad the ending is typical kamen rider series, underrated

7 Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

Unique Riders, amazing plot, Better than power rangers... "I am God himself! "

Little bit of bias because it's my first and I love video games but the characters are all really unique especially kuroto "I am God! " and the story is amazing. One critique though, too many plot twists!

I love kamen rider ex aid

Despite the plot being changed from the original version, they found a good way to keep the series going with rarely any filler. The writers must have Kami no sainou.

9 Kamen Rider Ryuki

Ryuki does not get the credit that it deserves. It is not a masterpiece, but it is a breath of fresh air compared to other rider series.

Absolutely loving the different range of character based on the animal kingdom. Masterpiece

Give different taste of kamen rider. Best..!

Ryuki really set itself apart from the rest of the kamen rider series at that time. Leaving behind the righteous hero persona and focus on a more interesting human vs human desire thus the conflict between the riders. All of the character were so well developed you can’t help yourself to fall in love with evert single one of them, including the villain. Actually the villain is my favourite character.

10 Kamen Rider Build

I would have to say Build is my personal favorite Kamen Rider series. The characters, the story, the design they're all so good! The ending was a tad sad for me but overall I'd give this a solid 8 out of 10.

Definitely one of the better seasons of Kamen rider. Character development is gantastic and the story seems to address everything that goes on in the show and its history. Sometimes towards the end of the season the comedy is misplaced but other than that, beyond worth the watch. 8.9/10

The character development in this story is actually one of the best. YOU GET TO REALLY LOVE THE CHARACTERS!

Best STORY of kamen rider hiSTORY!

21 Kamen Rider Decade

You get to see all the previous Heisei Riders just by watching this alone! A really good starting line for those who are interested to dive in the Kamen Rider universe... Isn't it so badass that the main rider can transform to another new rider?

Decade because per 2 episode there's a different hesei kamen rider and decade is so strong and diend is cool

22 Kamen Rider Hibiki
23 Kamen Rider Amazon
24 Kamen Rider Zi-O

A good intro to the past of the Heisei Riders. Like Decade, but handled better.
