Best Kamen Rider Series

The Top Ten

1 Kamen Rider Gaim

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

Best plot twist ever.

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 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

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

All the combo is the best

3 Kamen Rider Faiz

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.

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

4 Kamen Rider Black

Most dramatic and adult-ish storyline

The best

Best Kamen Rider Villain ever: Shadowmoon! Best Kamen Rider Death as well.

Nobody will ever be able to be compared to him.

5 Kamen Rider Build

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.

It was such a sad yet Happy

Build has great characters with understandable motivations. Great watch 11/10

This kamen rider has many forms that I question but look amazing and has a good story that goes on and on.

6 Kamen Rider Den-O

Watched this show when I visited my grandparents in Japan. Fun memories, basically my childhood.

It was my childhood.

Grew up with this show, love seeing a timid rider

My childhood right here

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

Best characters, and engaging plot

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! "

9 Kamen Rider Kabuto

The best kamen rider ever

like it

Kabuto is the most amazing rider among all the rider i’ve known and the cool guy Hiro Mizushima match with the attitude as Tendou Souchi. Please make a comeback Kabuto.

10 Kamen Rider Ryuki

It even got it own remake: dragon knight

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.

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.

Give different taste of kamen rider. Best..!

The Contenders

11 Kamen Rider Ghost
12 Kamen Rider Wizard Kamen Rider Wizard

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.

I recommend you watch this series, PLEASE! Actually no. Watch it, NOW!

13 Kamen Rider Blade

Too meaningful, nothing is better

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.

Has great story-telling, writing, and acting! All around a fantastic entry. Each episode leaves you wanting to know more!

Please try Kiva, the storyline of this series can be considered the best in heishei kamen rider series.

15 Kamen Rider Drive

It starts out fun, but then gets really dark. 10/10

16 Kamen Rider Fourze

I go with my gut into space

Fourze was the first I watched.

BEST Show EVer Final 2 Episodes Were Amazing

I love this season because of 2 reasons: gentaro and the story telling. From the first episode to the last it's a steady build up I didn't get from some other seasons.

17 Kamen Rider Amazons

Because it is just brutal and serios

Great S1

18 Kamen Rider Agito

Best storyline, best plot driving, best plot twist.

The best storyplot of a Kamen Rider series ever.

19 Kamen Rider Black RX

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

20 Kamen Rider Decade

It's really a great series

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

21 Kamen Rider Kuuga

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 Amazon


24 Kamen Rider Zi-O

The best kamen rider show by far!

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

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
