Jumpkick Your Weekend With Every Kamen Rider Finishing Move [Video]

Kamen Rider #1 and #2 Perform a Double Rider Kick
Toei

I’m a relatively new fan of the franchise, but for me, the appeal of Kamen Rider is that, at its heart, it’s about a guy who jump-kicks monsters so hard that they explode. That is basically my ideal form of entertainment, just evil monsters all bursting into flames because of karate. And apparently, someone over at Toei agrees with me.

That, I assume, is why they decided to promote the upcoming movie, Heisei Riders vs. Shōwa Riders: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai, by putting together a highlight reel of every Rider performing his finishing move on a villain, which usually results in the bad guys exploding, being thrown off a cliff, or sometimes being thrown off a cliff and then exploding. Be warned, though: Some dude is definitely going to have his eyes ripped out and his head punched off, in what is basically an action show for tiny children. It is fantastic.

In case you’re not familiar with the term, the Shōwa era is the period of Japanese history from 1926 to 1989, which, for Kamen Rider purposes, covers everything from the original 1971 Kamen Rider #1 all the way up to 1987-1989′s Kamen Rider Black and Kamen Rider Black RX. The current era is the Heisei Period, which covers Kamen Rider Kuuga up through the current series, the fruit-based samurai war that is Kamen Rider Gaim.

You could probably guess the plot of the movie just from the title (they’re handy like that), but it’s built around a big ol’ battle royale between the two eras of Riders. Presumably we’ll be getting a follow-up video showing the more modern side of things, which will be nice since we get to see weaponized guitar solos and Kamen Rider Fourze’s Rider Rocket Drill Kick (in space).

On the off chance that you still need more reasons to get pumped about monster violence, here’s “Let’s Go Rider Kick!”, an update of the original theme song as sung by a five-piece cosplaying girl group.
