    I honestly I'd find it funny if emu tried to diet a rider for eating a shonen protag amount only to feel bad when he finds out about the driver causing hypermetabolism

    Emu would probably be able to tell if a Rider has hypermetabolism if he did a checkup on them (which ofc he would). It has some pretty obvious symptoms aside from the appetite. Fine tremors, a fast heart rate, no weight gain despite all the eating, etc. He'd figure out real quick that something else is up.

    I should know because I actually have hypermetabolism, specifically due to hyperthyroidism. I didn't gain much weight easily, especially when I was younger- and I ate a bowl of rice 3 times a day, every day. I had the tremors, but I chalked it up to anxiety/nerves/caffeine until my parents convinced me to check up with the company GP. She took one look at me and said "you need to see an endocrinologist" and here I am, two years later and taking meds for a overworking thyroid

    How would emu handle a rider with shonen protagonist appetite due to their rider procedure messing up their metabolism

    Being a good Mama, he feeds his children until they aren't hungry anymore. He may not have budget for his games for like two months but as long as his babies are well-fed he doesn't care

    (Also Takeru totally has shonen protagonist appetite levels with his nomming and he's Emu's favorite child)

    If anything king being his former lord's descendant would just double down utchy's loyalty probably would just increase the honorifics he uses for daigo probably

    I'm not really sure how that would work though lmao. He already calls most of the cast with the honorific 'tono', including King. He also calls Souji's dad "honorable father" or something to that effect if I'm not mistaken.

    Maybe he'd go the Kotoha route and add "-sama" to King's honorific... "King-tono-sama" sounds a bit ostentatious though XD

    Imagine if daigo was actually moshinosuke's descendant (utchy's former lord) that would be a weird sense of fate for utchy, ik basing this on the fact they share an actor

    Hmm... It's entirely possible, given that Kyouryuger has used same actors to play both ancestor and descendant (Tessai and Shinya, Kyouryu Gray I and II, both played by Masayuki Deai).

    It's also possible that it's just a shorthand to show how King had traits that were similar to Utchy's former lord, which would of course mean that King was worthy of Utchy's trust and fealty.

    In any case, if King was related to Moshinosuke, it doesn't actually matter all that much, since King earned Utchy's loyalty on his own merits. His ancestry would not matter as much, because King would have it regardless of who he descended from.

    Krc rider does the handshake to a non kcr rider before meeting gentaro again, everyone is confused because they thought kcr had only two riders

    They probably just assume they're someone familiar with Gentaro, since Gentaro does the handshake with everyone. Riders, classmates, students, teachers... And that's a pretty good sign tbh, if they're Gentaro approved

    How do you think utchy would get along with the shinkaigers considering the shinkaiger team probably would date back to his original era

    Well.... the Shiba clan were feudal lords in their heyday (hence why the others call Takeru "tono"), and the modern Shinkengers' clans were his closest vassals.

    So Utchy would probably fall over himself paying his respects to Takeru and his teammates. Saying things about how the Shiba clan's reputation precedes itself, how his lord wouldn't forgive him if he didn't pay the proper respect due to the head of such a respected family.

    Takeru for his part would likely be extremely embarrassed by the extreme formality, especially since Utchy himself seemed to have a reputation in his day and age too.

    If krc had a kohai become a rider post high school i like too think gentaro would automatically remember them despite it being years he never forgets a friends face

    Yup. He'd help his kouhai kick ass, then do the KRC handshake with them, then glomp them while crying about how proud of he is of them

    Also, technically speaking his students are also his kouhai, since he teaches at his alma mater, AHS. He does have a student who became a hero, though not a Rider- he's the modern day Inazuman.

    Tbf i don't think riders should have the right to keep hold of another rider's driver if its not a successor or child protégé scenario if they aren't scooped up by the riders immediately like if they already have some solo experience they should be able to hold onto their drivers "just in case"

    In such a case, yeah, there's not really much they can do about it. If they don't have a direct mentor relationship with the Rider, they won't interfere in his Rider activities much- save for those occasions when Shit Is Going Down Again.

    Also, unless the Rider has proven to be reckless with how they use their power (like if they endanger civilians around them in their fights), or if it turns out that being a Kamen Rider is detrimental to the Rider's well-being (like if it's actively killing them or something ala the Demons Driver), they'll probably leave it be.

    Although, if they do take the Rider under their wing, they'd probably be more strict about letting them fight at all. Especially if it's a kid.

    Fair through i was kinda more playing the sougo scenario for proteges scenario but thats fun too

    Yeah I kinda went on the serious route for that ask tbh. I just thought that if these guys were gonna take on some proteges they were actually going to take it seriously, if only to spare these kids even a bit of the trauma that they went through

    How would riders handle their own protégé rider kouhai

    Well... I think a lot of them would learn tread carefully when it comes to taking on proteges, for one, even if this is one of their own kids. They absolutely won't take on a protege if they do not understand what they are committing to, and that there's no turning back once they start.

    While they would of course train them to use the gear and all, it would be done gradually, and with extreme caution and under supervision. The mentee will only use the Driver while training; otherwise it's with their mentor or secured away from them. Sparring with other Riders while transformed is also done under supervision. And the mentor would also teach them how to maintain the gears and repair them in emergencies.

    In no circumstances will the mentee be brought into an active battlefield, especially if they are a child. If they happen to be somewhere that becomes an active battle site they will be evacuated along with other civilians. Strictly no "helping".

    And they would also train them how to handle the emotional and mental stress of the job, in addition to learning how to take care of physical injuries.

    After all that, if the protege does survive the Rider training and takes up the Driver, then all there's left to do for the Riders is bawl like the proud parents/senpai they are when their protege makes their debut :))

    Fair depends on the motif of the rider you use the arcade emu cameo for if its another game themed rider going genius gamer M for intro might have more weight then respected doctor

    Yeah I suppose that's true.

    But I sorta imagine that they'd go... bigger than that. Like Emu making his cameo at a convention or something and being introduced as "Genius Gamer M" with the crowd going nuts and all that. And then creaming whoever challenged him of course XD

    Sorta like making him a legendary gamer to match his status as a Legend Rider

    I just realized that emu's mom instincts would trigger towards yugi and gang if he was in duelist kingdom if he found out why yugi was competing (his grampas soul was being held hostage) and joey's motivation for wanting the prize money for his sister's surgery

    Yup Mama Emu Instincts turned up to eleven and all that

    Fair but the arcade scene would be good build up to the cross over plus lets us see emu outside hospital duties

    I guess?

    Honestly I kinda prefer seeing Emu-as-the-doctor when he cameos, since that is his current, day-to-day reality now. It shows him as a more mature character especially if he's actually shown as respected in the field and doesn't trip on his own feet lol. It's something you'd expect from a "Legend Rider" and make you feel in awe of them. Like "This guy is so put together... and he's a Kamen Rider? Damn..."

    Him being Genius Gamer M is just the cherry on top

    Thoughts on minor nods to previous riders like a new character knowing the krc handshake as "something started by a senior" or a glimpse of a entry wizard ring (former gate) not really involved as plot points just easter eggs

    Always appreciated. It's honestly fun to see these sorts of things when they pop up, especially if it's out of nowhere ^^

    One of my favorites is when random props from one show just inexplicably shows up in another. Like how Shoutaro's favorite fedora randomly appears in one episode of Drive, or how all the clocks in Sougo's uncle's shop are clocks from other Heisei series. And who could forget Akiko's actress showing up in Ryusoulger with a green slipper in her very first scene XD

    This is a niche ask but how would rider's react to a secondary who invented their own rider system due to being rejected as viable to use the main system due to "fuck your magic craziness im helping my best friend with the power of science"

    ...Akari, is that you? Did you finally decide to eff it all and invent a Rider system?

    For real though, I don't think that the Riders would have a problem with that. They don't really care how you fight evil as long as you're actually fighting evil.

    On the other hand, because of the relationship between Rider powers and villain powers (ie how Riders and their villains usually draw on the same or similar power sources), I don't actually see this happening in canon- i.e. the main and secondary Rider drawing on different power sources. Usually it would be the same power source/trinket but with just a different theme.

    And honestly, most modern Rider systems are more magitek in nature- a mix of magical/supernatural and technological aspects, though sometimes it's more of one than the other.

    Honestly if miyuki retroactively got a mecha form I'd rather she get a combo with her husband then her children cause a parent mode mecha is funny to me

    I mean there's the husband/wife, love-is-the-most-powerful-magic-of-all thing as well but that works too

    If we had a nickel for everytime toei made a character named isamu with a wolf motif we'd have 2 nickels

    ...At least they're from different franchises and were from shows that aired at least a decade apart??

    I actually think drive is a kinda inverse of the cross of fire, with drive using the powers closer to the intended purpose while banno warped it with the roidmudes

    Yeah, I think I read something about that as well.

    Imo this is most evident with Chase, who was originally Proto-Drive, then got corrupted by Banno into Mashin Chaser, before being restored to the side of good as Kamen Rider Chaser.

    I actually had a loose idea of my idea for the Ai kamen rider would be final fight wise would be, A fight against a "perfected" Rider killer unit as dark mirror to the mc kinda a mix of the mach vs gold drive and the cyborg vs brother blood fight. With the ending one liner being something like "a fight between riders is more then a clash of weapons but a battle of wills" or some other similar sentiment

    I kinda get where you're going. I guess it comes down to how the fight is actually executed and the leadup, as well as how the actual philosophies of the main AI Rider and the villain clash/contrast with each other

    Going off magimothers elemental motif maybe a yukionna as a mecha form or have her pair off her giant form with the unicorn to parallel her husband's mecha

    I guess a yuki-onna could work, especially with her patron, Snowgel, essentially being one. Though perhaps if there were a similar but more benevolent mythical creature (since yuki-onna were more often portrayed as evil spirits), it would be perfect.

    I don't think the centaur-like form would work well for her, and besides Kai took that already.
