Best Kamen Rider Series

The Top Ten

1 Kamen Rider Gaim

Best plot twist ever.

Everything work 100%, except Dai Shogun form, but I do not care much for that

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.)

is good

2 Kamen Rider Build

It's really good because it has a simple plot to catch, it kinda follows the Shonen Manga style of story progress (where the main character have a trusty side kick since the start and a lovely (and useful) female protagonist), face a strong enemy, lost for awhile, then find ways to counter against the enemy and befriend them till a next stronger force cames and the cycles repeats) the villian plot twist may have been slightly obvious but the execution is great for having evolto being though alien that can kills a planet in a instance, just that he don't want to

Really great plot and the designs of the kamen riders are truly the best if you want to look at it aesthetically

There was so many twists that made sense and strengthen the plot more. The ending was sad, it was like a sacrifice that the main character had to make even though there was a movie afterwards that continued the ending. There were some things I would have liked to see, but I really recommend it. It's humorous and heartwarming with an amazing plot, never a dull moment.

The plot is just as intricate and the writing is just as solid as with Gaim, but Build has much more heroism, hope and love, despite the grim reality the characters find themselves in. It's not an instant hook, but once the underlying schemes of villain characters start to show you won't be able to stop watching until you have found out all the secrets behind these plans. A solid 10/10

3 Kamen Rider OOO Kamen Rider OOO

I Just love 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

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

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

4 Kamen Rider Faiz

One of the most Rider that I like since my childhood. If you just begin to start your first series, than Faiz is your answer.

Most realistic one out of them all!

Still be the best... Ever.

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.

5 Kamen Rider Black

The best looking suit, and story, a lot of recent kamen rider series are starting to look too cartoonish and overdone.

Its simply the best


Most dramatic and adult-ish storyline

7 Kamen Rider Double

The most solid overall storyline with fantastic characters and suits.


Absolutely beautifully crafted. The characters are very nicely made. Everything was very clearly designed. Tears will be shed.

It will make you shed tears, it will make you love the characters

8 Kamen Rider Ex-Aid

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!

It may start off looking pretty stupid, but it shifts drastically by episode 12 (those who’ve seen it know what I mean). It has a well paced and mostly filler free story filled with many great characters, and the greatest villain in all of Kamen Rider. Watch it now

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.

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

10 Kamen Rider Ryuki

It was my first and the best. I liked the drama, the human conflict, desires, and tragidies. You cannot even say that a rider is evil or doing the wrong thing. Almost everyone have his reason to fight. You will find your self at a conflict of emotions, you do not want anyone to die and want everyone to achieve his goal. I wish it get more focus and better remake making it into longer story.

It is so good. It has so many riders with so many different personalities. Yet, it manages to execute it so naturally.

Kamen rider design is really nice

Is cool story I enjoying

The Contenders

11 Kamen Rider Ghost

Meaningful characters and solid forms.

Great ending and good movies as well!

12 Kamen Rider Wizard Kamen Rider Wizard

This is the one which got best Plot as the one I watch yet underrated. 555 is great too but the end is not cleared about is the King dead, Amazon wreck because too much plotholes on S2, Kabuto is good yet too rush at 5 final episode so plenty situation unanswered, Fourze's boss characteristic weird at end because forcing to happy end, OOO plot is so-so, Gaim is too childish.

Different flow from the other Kamen Riders, if you enjoyed the storyline aspect of the show as much as I do, I would highly recommend you to watch this!


Very emotional, my favourite kamen rider out of all 35 current riders. Cool henshin transformation, cool rings. He's my idol.

14 Kamen Rider Kiva

Best themes and good movie with den-o

Amazing storytelling, the insert themes are rocking, and amazingly sung, and some amazing characters. This series is way underrated.

20 Kamen Rider Black RX

I still watching it these days because too many classic scenes!

21 Kamen Rider Kuuga

Definitely the best rider series of the Heisei Era. Recommend it 10/10

Godai Yusuke is not your typical rider protagonist. He is a thoughtful, talented, kind, and every other positive you could think of. If you thought Kisagri Gentaro was the most lovable primary rider ever, you would be mistaken. If you haven’t already, watch Kuuga! :0

Can change to many mode, mighty form, pegasus form, titan form, dragob form. Suitable for many battle.

Story,plot and action in this kamen rider is the best among other kamen rider

22 Kamen Rider Hibiki
23 Kamen Rider Zi-O

Its very funny and silly

The best kamen rider show by far!

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

24 Kamen Rider Amazon
25 Kamen Rider W


A fun detective story that helped form the Neo-Heisei era

It just double

26 Kamen Rider Kamen Rider Kamen Rider is a tokusatsu superhero television series and weekly science fiction manga created by manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori.
27 Kamen Rider ZO

The only Kamen Rider ZO with the best graphical scenes. Golden era. This movie, not series is probably the best one. Highly recommend a remake of this version. You'll understand once you watch the movie. Be more bad ass if its not for children audience.

Just watch the movie and you'll realize why the 90's could be the golden era of Kamen Riders
