Kamen Rider Looking Hero Image Leaked: Legit Or Hoax?

J-Hero recently posted an image of  what seems to be a Kamen Rider-looking hero. Question is: is this legit or is this a fan-made suit?

With no news and info regarding Kamen Rider Drive for now, will this be the official look for the next rider after Kamen Rider Gaim? Let's find out in a couple of weeks or so.

    That's not Kamen Rider Drive... It's a Local Hero:

    This id from a different series. This character looks like it's from a anime jungle Japan series

  3. Hairball Says:

    looks like a fan made custom suit...

  4. Fan it's looks to evil for a hero

  5. Anonymous Says:

    The belt doesn't look marketable enough. I don't know what it is but I'm pretty sure it's not a legit Kamen Rider.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    It looks cool, but it's probably fake.

    On another note, I feel really sorry for Drive considering he has to follow after the pure awesomeness that is Gaim!

    The shoulder says ZEROS on it and the boots aren't set right. I doubt this is Kamen Rider Drive. Might be fan made or an unofficial toku. Neat helmet though!

  8. Anonymous Says:

    That's a real hero, but not the next Kamen Rider, guys. It's Zeros, a Osaka-based local hero, just like how Fujiyama Ichiban is a local hero in the US.

  9. Anonymous Says:

    That's not a hoax Kamen Rider, that's a "local hero". Plenty of places around Japan have tokusatsu-esque mascots for their towns. Sometimes the local heroes team up with official heroes, but not often.

    This is Osaka's hero, Zeros, he fights against crime, environmental destruction, and rude manners in public (or at least that's what Google Translate seems to imply.

    This link shows it's some other thing, not Kamen Rider I'm afraid!

  11. It looks like one of those 555 stage show riders

    That's Chikyu Senshi Zeros.

  13. Michael Says:

    That is a not a Kamen Rider. His name is Zeros, a local hero in Japan.

  14. Blazer Says:

    No, that's a Henshin Hero mascot from the Entertainment Hobby Shop Jungle website! Seriously, click the ad and check out the guy to the left.

    Hopefully a hoax just because it looks too much like a den-o character

  16. thunder Says:

    If this is a fan-made suit, I gotta admit, the guy who made the suit knew what he was doing.

    I don't think this is Drive because the word on his shoulder armor says "Zeros" but that could mean the "Drive-driver" could've been made by a company called "Zeros," and "Zeros" just printed their logo onto that shoulder armor there because, "Why the fuck not?", sort of like how the Faiz belt was made by Smart-Brain. I also don't see much of a Gimmick going on for the belt he's using. And by gimick, I mean stuff like Cards, Memories, Medals, Switches, all that neat stuff.

    So, I don't think it's the real deal drive suit, just a really good fan-made suit that makes me want to clap for the guy who made this masterpiece. The suit just radiates badassery in my opinion.

    If this is legit, bet you it's a base form. There has to be something that goes over it. But only if it's legit.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    I highly doubt that we would be getting a full suit picture this early. There hasn't really been anything else regarding drive no theme no nothing. So to be seeing a full suit just makes no sense.

  19. Anonymous Says:

    I have seen that suit somewhere on some japanese website since last year, I doubt this will be kamen rider drive. I think this is from some Korean series or other Asian show.

  20. Anonymous Says:

    Ah yes, because all costumed heroes have to be Kamen Rider.
    It's probably another local hero, Osaka maybe.

    Nah. The belt is too plain. It needs pieces and gimmicks so that they'll have more to sell as toys.

  24. It's a local hero called Zeros. I met him once.

His finishing move is his Super Powerful Plasma Wave Kick which ion-decomposes evil monsters, turning them in recyclable materials like plastic bottles".

    Be easy guys it's just a misunderstanding. This is no new rider.

    What? This doesn't look ANYTHING like a Kamen Rider. At all. Not even a little bit. It even clearly has the word "ZEROES" on its shoulder.

    Come on now jefusion you can do better than to look at a picture of a local hero and say "LOOK! KAMEN RIDER!".

    If you do a google search of the image, it dates back to February at least. Judging from the other photos there, it's some local superhero mascot.

    It is a Hero, but it isn't a Kamen Rider, that's for sure. Clearly you can see Zeros on the shoulder pad.

    You guys really need to actually need to backtrack and look back at what you post before laughable stuff like this.

  35. this is a misreport; this is not Kamen Rider Drive but some local hero called Zero

  36. It's a Local Hero, guy.

    Seriously, reverse image search these things on google before posting.

    No, this isn't a new Kamen Rider design. This is Zeros000, a local hero that promotes anti crime and good manners. This is targeted for kids which could be the reason why he looks like a Kamen Rider.

    He has an official website:

  47. His name is Zeros. He's a local hero in Japan who has been getting mistaken for the next years' Rider for the last few years.

  48. Anonymous Says:

    That is one awesome looking suit. Freaking badass. It seems to be Kamen Rider related, if you look closely at the belt straps they are the same props used for the real Riders. The belt looks very showa-eqse which is great.

    But I think it's fake. It says Zeros on his right shoulder. So unless the form change names would be written on the suit. It's probably fake.

  49. Titan Says:

    Fanmade, the gloves, the boots, the overall fit just looks like some fanmade suit, a cool one, but fanmade :P

    c'mon - really . . . google it

  65. Anonymous Says:

    This is a "local hero" called ZEROS, based in Osaka. Many areas in Japan have "local heroes", tokusatsu mascot heroes that educate about various causes. ZEROS educates about crime prevention, environmental awareness, and appropriate public awareness. There is little to no crossover with official tokusatsu stuff like Super Sentai and Kamen Rider. This character likely has nothing to do with Kamen Rider Drive.

    Surprised that my comment I had sent earlier today hadn't showed up, last time I mentioned a correction, you guys were rather prompt about it.

    It's a local hero from Osaka named Zeroes.

    That's ZEROES. He's a local hero. No, it's not Kamen Rider. Something about ZERO tolerance for pollution or something. Do a little research before making a big deal out of nothing.

    I'd guess fan-made. The whole leg portion doesn't really seem like the style of toeis suits, it seems to be constructed the way alot of cosplayers construct boot-covers, rather than buying expensive custom boots. It's a very nice suit though, just not quite up to mainstream toku standards.

    Na its a local hero.

  82. Anonymous Says:

    Nope. Something called Chikyu Senshi Zeros

  83. Anonymous Says:

    The suit looks like it's high enough quality for it to be a true Kamen Rider, but the shoulder says zeroes, which doesn't fit the Rider's name. That doesn't necessarily mean that this isn't Drive, though.
    The other problem is the simple look of the belt. These days, the belts need to offer a lot of play options for the people who buy the toys. This is also only a possible issue, since the Decadriver looks simple but has a card reader which gives the user plenty of options. Still, the belt would look pretty plain for a Neo Heisei belt.

  84. Anonymous Says:

    I'm gonna say that that isn't Drive, because a) It says "ZEROS" on his shoulder, & b) His belt doesn't look like a toy

  85. No. This would be "Chikyu Senshi ZEROS" (地球戦士ゼロス), a local hero from Osaka. He's one of the more popular local hero in Japan, and his suit is designed by some famous toymaker / toy shop or something.

  86. No. This would be "Chikyuu Senshi ZEROS" (地球戦士ゼロス), a local hero from Osaka area. He's one of the more popular local heroes, and his suit was designed by a famous toymaker / toy shop or something (forgot the name)...

  87. Bryd0 Says:

    It's not. It's actually something called Chikyuu Senshi Zeros which seems to be a fan-made thing. Also that I saw that suit a few times before, so I can confirm that it's a definite hoax.

    i say that's a hoax. maybe some townfolk heroes like ryujin mabuyer or something

  89. If you guys read the comments of the FB post you linked, it's a local hero called Zeros. Not Kamen Rider related in the slightest.

    Fanmade. Plex always does the first shots of the suit on a filming location. It'll always be in a spot that you've seen in the show before. Gaim's first shots were taken in the spot that he used Kiwami Arms for the first time in the show.

    IDk . . but i gues it's not related to kamen rider

  92. Unknown Says:

    This guy is hero, but has nothing to do with Kamen Rider (except, perhaps, the inspiration).

    His name is Zeros, and, afaik, he is a local hero for the region of Osaka. The online store Jungle-SCS also uses kind of him as a mascot.

  93. LordPozak Says:

    The Head part looks great but the body looks like came from kamen rider faiz....

  94. to Bad for Tokusatsu . LOL . it's looks like superhero from thai

    to bad for tokusatsu after gaim

    i would say its fake since he is directly posing for the camera and the fact that he doesent have a crew surrounding him filming a fight scene outside.but time will tell if this picture is fake or the next kamen rider,or just another toku inspired superhero.

    Thats Zeros from Chikyu Senshi Zeros

    guys, this pic comes from a prefectural local hero of Osaka, "Zeros". he's one of the famous local heroes of japan, just like Fujiyama Icchiban of San Francisco, USA, the Kotarangers, Wakurangers,and Chojin Neiger. here's the wikipedia description of Local Heroes:

    A local hero (ローカルヒーロー rōkaru hīrō?, also written as gotōchi hīrō (ご当地ヒーロー?)) is a Japanese fictional superhero who is created to represent a particular region of Japan, such as a prefecture or city. They often perform in special martial arts stage shows. Created either by local groups or the local government, a local hero is modeled after the superheroes of Japanese tokusatsu (superheroes are not as prevalent in manga in Japan as they are in comic books in the West). A local hero is often themed around the city or prefecture's local mythologies or industries, are created to teach the children who watch the stage shows certain things (like Recycle Sentai Wakerunger (リサイクル戦隊ワケルンジャー Risaikuru Sentai Wakerunjā?) of Fukui, Fukui Prefecture), or are themed after the event that they are used to promote (the Traffic Sentai Anzenger (トラフィック戦隊アンゼンジャー Torafikku Sentai Anzenjā?) group performed at the Tokyo Motor Show to act in both the latter forms for road traffic safety).

  108. Stardust Says:

    That's Zeros, a Japanese local hero who already exist for quite some time, at least since 2012.....

  109. somewhere in osaka Says:

    this is Osaka nipponbashi local hero, Zeros

  110. Chaos Says:

    its not the main rider of a series the belt is far too simplistic compare the belt to decade w or even wizard this is a block no controls or other such so if its offical is probably not the main rider

  111. Well I don't know about you guys but I'm surprised they used the name I made for my oc rider in fanfiction. Kamen rider drive was seen in hawkeyeriku's familiar of zero kamen rider eternal crossover. The belt looks like the general shape of the driver I gave drive. - Buy Video Games for Consoles and PC - From Japan, Korea and other Regions
