My Top 10 Kamen Rider Gunmen


In one of my previous top 10's, I listed down my top 10 swordsmen in the Kamen Rider franchise. Now, here are my top 10 gunmen from the franchise.

To be completely honest, I'm definitely a sword guy, but I do have a respect for the gun.

For this list we'll consider the following:
- The rider must primarily wield a gun in combat. Merely having a gun in the arsenal won't count.
- Bows/bowguns will not be considered.
- Any rider who changes forms before accessing gun-based weapons aren't counted either. Hence Kuuga Pegasus Form, Den-O Gun Form, Kiva Bassha, Ghost Billy the Kid, and Build HwakGatling, etc. are out.

Like always, this list is based on my personal choices so leave in the comments your own favorites.

1. Kamen Rider Zolda


If you ask me about gun wielding Kamen Riders, Zolda will be the first to cross my mind. Among all the riders in Ryuki, Zolda is the only pure long range fighter. Zolda's visor is already a gun which also serves as his primary weapon, and can also conjure 2 types of Shoot Vents: either a bazooka or shoulder mounted cannons which are both devastating by themselves. Not to mention, his Final Vent unleashes such damage that can possibly rival even the Survive Forms and Odin.

2. Kamen Rider G3/G3-X


As the only Kamen Rider in the Agito series to be based on modern technology, G3/G3-X needed to rely on heavy firepower to finish off the Unknown. Given his police training, G3's proficiency with firearms is expected. Also, thanks to the suit's AI targeting shouldn't be a problem.

3. Kamen Rider Garren


Since he's already on the thumbnail, it's best that Garren be included on this list already. Garren's Rouse Cards are mostly geared for for his fighting style. Combining the Bullet Armadillo, Rapid Woodpecker, Fire Firefly, and Scope Bat will surely give the best results.

4. Kamen Rider Snipe


Being based on shooting games Snipe is obviously on this list. Even his power-ups (except when transforming into Cronus) are based on long range combat.

5. Kamen Rider Birth


Sure, Birth has many tools in combat but his primary weapon is the Birth Buster. Using the Cell Burst Mode, Birth is capable of destroying groups of Yummies and even Greeed.

6. Kamen Rider Ibuki


While Ibuki's weapon is based on a trumpet, without using the buckle it's actually a gun! Ibuki's gun embeds oni stones into a Makamou's body, then converts the gun into a trumpet, and plays music that will detonate the oni stones. Very interesting!

7. Kamen Rider Drake


Many riders in the Kabuto series have some sort of way to fight ranged. But none took advantage of it like Drake did. Not only is he a talented make-up artist, he also can take down Worms with his Rider Shooting.

8. Kamen Rider Ryugen


Everybody hates Mitsuzane, but Ryugen is actually a fine ranged fighter. Ryugen's Budou Ryuhou can fire rapid shots or a charged blast. Ryugen's fighting style complements Gaim's sword style by providing cover fire, distraction or dealing the final shot after Gaim weakens the enemy. Just make sure he  doesn't shoot YOU in the BACK.

9. Kamen Rider Diend


Being armed with only the Diendriver which also serves as his henshin device, Diend really specializes in ranged combat. But by using just the Diend Blast card, he can already fire rapid shots that also have homing capabilities, and end battles with his version of the Dimension Shot.

10. Kamen Rider Nega Den-O


Though he looks like Sword Form, Nega Den-O is actually a gunman. His iconic shot where he jumps back and shoots the enemy is proof of his preferred fighting style.

Kamen Rider Mach
Kamen Rider Delta
Kamen Rider Amaki
Kamen Rider G-Den-O
Kamen Rider G4
