"I'm in Top Gear!"
―Shinnosuke's main catchphrase when he starts becoming focused[src]
"Let's go for a ride!"
―Shinnosuke's declaration as a Kamen Rider before his fight[src]

Shinnosuke Tomari[1] (泊 進ノ介 Tomari Shinnosuke?) is a former elite police officer and detective who lost all his motivation after he accidentally injured his partner during the catastrophic Global Freeze. Recent events, however, have slowly started to put his life back together again after he's placed into the Tokyo Special Unit. Together with Mr. Belt, his partner/manager Kiriko Shijima, and the Shift Cars, he fights against the Roidmudes with as the warrior Drive. Once he hears of his predecessor's legacy as a Kamen Rider, he embraces the name Kamen Rider Drive (仮面ライダードライブ Kamen Raidā Doraibu?).

HistoryEdit

Pre-seriesEdit

Shinnosuke's 24th birthday is stated to be on Christmas Eve 2014; placing his date of birth as 24th December 1990. His father was a police officer and explained to Shinnosuke the hardships of working as a cop.

Global FreezeEdit

Experiencing technical difficulties

Shinnosuke firing the fateful shot during the Global Freeze.

Six months prior to the series, during the "Global Freeze" incident, Shinnosuke and his partner Hayase were apprehending criminals known as Neo-Shade. During that day, the public had received a hostage message from Neo-Shade demanding a large amount of money. With careful deduction, Shinnosuke had found out about the true criminal, the Copycat Pirate. The two are able to find his location and they confront him. The man is revealed to a talk show host, Koya Nishinori. Shinnosuke was about to arrest him before a sudden appearance of Roidmude 005. Nishinori runs, and unbeknownst to Shinnosuke, was captured and horrified by the monster. Shinnosuke finds and arrests Nishimori.Episode 0: Countdown to Global Freeze

Later on that night, during Global Freeze, Shinnosuke and Hayase were chasing down a couple of criminals, the Neo-Shade. Hayase was cornered in between a flammable generator and one of the two criminals. Panicking, Shinnosuke pulled out his gun and tried to aim at the criminal, but due to the Slowdown effect, he accidentally shot the generator, causing it to explode and in the process, causing some pipes to collapse. As he tried to save Hayase from the falling pipes, the Slowdown effect happened once again, causing him to be unable to save his partner from being crushed. Shinnosuke thus lost his motivation as a police officer, and was transferred to a special investigations unit. Why Did My Time Stop?

Present DayEdit

Inheriting the Kamen Rider Name Edit

A slack-off police officer, Shinnosuke is sent to investigate a "Heavy Acceleration" case involving Roidmude 029. Shinnosuke realizes he's fighting a monster, so the Drive Driver gives him the ability to transform into Drive. By utilizing his Tire Exchanges, he defeats Roidmude 029. With the sudden return of Roidmude 029, Shinnosuke theorizes that his powers are connected to the Roidmudes. Visiting his injured partner Hayase, Shinnosuke receives encouragement from the latter and realizes the truth of the victims left behind by Roidmude 029. As Drive, he destroyed Roidmude 029 permanently with the latter calling him a "Kamen Rider". In a heated discussion with Kiriko and Shinnosuke in the background, Mr. Belt approves of the naming scheme of Kamen Rider, thus dubbing Drive as "Kamen Rider Drive". Why Did My Time Stop? What is a Kamen Rider?

The Arrival of Reaper and Kiriko's Past Edit

Later on, Shinnosuke in a case about humans turning into data to be applied onto paintings, he learns that Kiriko was traumatized like him during Global Freeze. He also learns of the previous Drive before him, Proto-Drive, who saved Kiriko from the Roidmude who attempted to turn her into data. Shinnosuke destroys Roidmude 084 and has a confrontation against Mashin Chaser, before retreating. Roidmude 10 is laterf destroyed by Driver's new armament, the Handle-Ken alongside the Shift Car: Dream Vegas. Who Stole the Woman's Smile? What is That Prideful Chaser Thinking?

Learning What a Warrior Has to Fight for and the Birth of Type Wild Edit

Afterwards, Roidmudes start to attack food trucks, led by the Crush Roidmude. Shinnosuke tries to fight them with Rumble Dump, but the incompatibility with Type Speed prevents him from finishing them off. Shinnosuke continues the investigation, feeling good about the Special Unit's recognition as well as his status as a Kamen Rider. He vows to protect the food trucks and their drivers from getting hurt, especially to Font-R. However, he is constantly interrupted by Mashin Chaser, who says he is a fool and that mankind is evil after gaining knowledge. This is proven later on when, during a confrontation with Chaser, he finds out Font-R has been smuggling explosives. Discouraged by this revelation, he is unable to transform into Type Wild, and is thus beaten by Crush and Chase, and then poisoned by Brain. What Are the Steel Robbers After?

Shinnosuke somehow escapes and survives with the help of the Shift Car: Mad Doctor, granting him the ability to sustain himself from the poison's power. When the Special Unit is shut down, Shinnosuke learns that the Superintendent shut it down to cover his tracks as well as being paid to remove further investigation on the Font-R President. Shinnosuke manages to reveal this treason and confronts both Mashin Chaser and Crush. Shinnosuke reveals that he fights people not in the name of justice, but simply to protect others. Using Type Wild and the Shift Car Rumble Dump, he easily defeats Chase and also destroys Crush. He also learns that Rinna is the technician behind Drive's armaments. Who Does the Warrior Fight For?

The Mysterious Fire Case and the Cool Technic Edit

Shinnosuke is introduced with the new three Shift Cars. One of them is Technic for accessing Type Technic. Krim states that to perform Type Technic, Shinnosuke has to be cool. However, Shinnosuke misstates about being cool by acting cool, rendering him to become Type Technic.

PersonalityEdit

Shinnosuke was once an elite officer within the force with his partner Hayase, known for his great police work. He inherited his sense of justice from his father, who said police officers have the heaviest burden of all: protecting the people. However, after accidentally injuring his partner, he turned into a shade of his former self: Constantly running off to laze around, and more often seen eating milk balls than actually working. Because of this, even after assuming the guise of Drive, he has yet to fully recover back into what he refers to as "top gear", remaining aloof and takes situations and other matters lightly.

He would often say "I'm done thinking about it!" whenever he's come to a conclusion. Whether these conclusions are helpful (throwing away his hesitation to help people) or not (forgetting his problems to continue lazing around) is a matter of luck.

Under his aloof attitude and lazy facade is a man who holds a strong bearing of justice. Shinnosuke refuses to see people around him be hurt and shifts himself and his brain into "high gear", reverting to his former self. His appearance while under this attitude is often shown with him straightening his tie. However, after this attitude adjustment is temporary and he will revert back to his normal self with his tie mysteriously undoing itself at times.

As Drive, Shinnosuke has the archetype of a proud, snarky superhero, creating puns or bantering his opponent when he has the opportunity, apparently toying with his opponents. Similar to Faiz, he would often close his right hand and flick it open as a hand gesture.

TypesEdit

Kamen Rider Drive's forms are called Types (タイプ Taipu?). Some Shift Cars alter the suit based on a certain attribute, whereas other Shift Cars arm Drive with a certain element or weapon, by changing the tire on Drive's suit for a Tire Exchange (タイヤ交換 Taiya Kōkan?). These two types of Shift Cars can be used in conjunction with each other, but some Tires can only work with certain body Types.

After turning the Advanced Ignition on the Drive Driver, Drive can perform one of two actions in each Type: Lifting the Shift Car placed within the Shift Brace between one and three times initiates either a special ability or an attack, while pressing the Igniter on the Shift Brace and lifting the Shift Car once unleashes the Type's Full Throttle (フルスロットル Furu Surottoru?) finishing move.

All versions of this Type bear a tire across Drive's torso. While changing Shift Cars, upbeat jazz music plays.

Tireless

Type Speed Tire-less

This version of Type Speed is briefly seen during both Drive's transformation and Tire Exchange, the latter specifically after the previous tire is ejected and before the new tire gets attached in its place.

Type Speed
KRDr-Drivespeed

Type Speed

"Drive: Type Speed! (Upbeat jazz music)"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 199 cm.
  • Weight: 102 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 6.0 t.
  • Kicking power: 10.4 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 32 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 5.7 sec. (1.8 sec. at full speed)

Type Speed (タイプスピード Taipu Supīdo?) is Drive's default sports car-based form. Accessed through the Shift Speed Car, this form bears the Type Speed Tire (タイプスピードタイヤ Taipu Supīdo Taiya?). This form debuts in episode 1.

Out of Drive's Types, this form has the most balance in terms of strength and agility, which also makes it his most frequently used form.

Drive's special ability in this form is, as the name implies, speed. When he lifts the Shift Speed Car three times, Drive is able to move incredibly fast and perform high velocity attacks. He can also perform the Turbo Smash (ターボスマッシュ Tābo Sumasshu?) attack, where Drive makes the Type Speed Tire rotate rapidly as he skids towards the enemy and trips them up into the air. Afterwards, he unleashes a barrage of rapid punches onto the falling target, making an image of a speedometer appear from the resulting series of punches. Alternatively, Drive can skip the tripping portion of his attack and go immediately to its punching portion.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the SpeeDrop (スピードロップ Supīdoroppu?), where four spinning tires manifest to surround the enemy while Drive turns his back to the target as the Tridoron races around him, focusing his power. The tires then fully close in on the target, making the target shoot forwards towards Drive, who instead jumps at the Tridoron and kicks at it, making him bounce off of it and kick the target. Drive then keeps bouncing off the Tridoron and kicking the target in a pinball-like manner until he comes in with the final kick, skidding to a stop.

Appearances: Episodes 1-4, Secret Mission Type TV-KUN, 5, 7-9, Movie War Full Throttle, 10-13

Stat-wise, Type Speed Flare's punching and kicking power is slightly more powerful than Type Speed. However, its jumping height decreases slightly and the maximum running speed is much slower in comparison.

In this mode, Drive is empowered with fire-enhanced abilities, covering his hands and legs in flames with every attack, as well as allowing him to manifest a fiery construct of the Max Flare Tire for him to kick at the enemy where it produces a flaming cyclone that shoots the target skyward. Type Speed Flare's Full Throttle finisher is the Flare Stream (フレアストリーム Furea Sutorīmu?), where Drive launches a barrage of fireballs from the Max Flare Tire towards the enemy.

Stat-wise, Type Speed Spike's punching and kicking power is more powerful than Type Speed. However, its jumping height and speed is lower and slightly slower than Type Speed Flare.

In this mode, Drive can attack with the Funky Spike Tire by having it either shoot off spike projectiles or rotate so rapidly that it shreds any enemy he comes within range of. Type Speed Spike's Full Throttle finisher is the Spike Tornado (スパイクトルネード Supaiku Torunēdo?).

  • Kicking power: 11.2 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 31.4 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 6.2 sec.

The police car-based Shift Justice Hunter Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Speed into Type Speed Hunter (タイプスピードハンター Taipu Supīdo Hantā?), which bears the jail cell-themed Justice Hunter Tire (ジャスティスハンタータイヤ Jasutisu Hantā Taiya?). This mode debuts in episode 2.

Stat-wise, Type Speed Hunter can throw more powerful kicks and punches than the first three Tire Exchange modes and Type Speed. However, it has a slightly decreased jumping height compared to Type Speed, and is among the slowest of the Tire Exchange modes.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Justice Cage. Type Speed Hunter's Full Throttle finisher is the JustiSmash (ジャスティスマッシュ Jasutisumasshu?), where after trapping the enemy with the Justice Cage, Drive uses projections of the Tridoron's tires to launch himself at the cage, then upwards and back, making a loop before sliding at the cage with a punch, the cage lifting seconds before Drive can smash into it, destroying the enemy.

Stat-wise, Type Speed Vegas is slightly faster than Type Speed Hunter, and can also jump higher than it as well. However, it has slightly weaker punching and kicking power.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Drum Shields. Type Speed Vegas' Full Throttle finisher is the Million Attack (ミリオンアタック Mirion Atakku?), where the Drum Shields combine with the Dream Vegas Tire, causing the three wheels to spin around like a slot machine. Whatever the three icons land on determines the action.

  • Tire: Drive shoots one gold coin pathetically at the enemy, which doesn't even reach it.

In this mode, Drive can generate a teleporting portal from the Dimension Cab Tire that separates a portion of his body from the rest of himself to use for multiple tasks. Type Speed Cab's Full Throttle finisher is the Dimension Branch (ディメンションブランチ Dimenshon Buranchi?).

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Rumble Smasher. However, in Type Speed Dump's first (and possibly only) usage, Drive was unable to control the Rumble Smasher, which resulted in him being dragged along for the ride as the out-of-control weapon lifted him off of his feet and all over the place.

Appearances: Episode 5

Type Speed Doctor
KRDr-Drivespeeddoctor

Stat-wise, Type Speed Doctor has the weakest offensive stats, weaker than even Type Speed, has one of the worst jumping heights, and is among the slowest of the usable Tire Exchange modes for Type Speed, making it overall one of Type Speed's worse Tire Exchange forms to be in an active fight.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Cure Quicker. Type Speed Doctor's Full Throttle "finisher" makes Drive hover in the air as medical equipment appears around him, which is then used to remove whatever ailment is affecting him, such as poison. The downside is that, true to its name, Mad Doctor's healing is excruciatingly painful.

Appearances: Episode 6


All versions of this Type bear a tire on Drive's right shoulder. While changing Shift Cars, urban hip-hop music plays.

WildTireLess

Type Wild Tire-less

This version of Type Wild is briefly seen during both Drive's transformation and Tire Exchange, the latter specifically after the previous tire is ejected and before the new tire gets attached in its place.

Type Wild
KRDr-Drivewild

Type Wild

"Drive: Type Wild! Go, Go, G-G-Go On, On, On, LET'S DO IT!"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 197 cm.
  • Weight: 123 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Punching power: 8.1 t.
  • Kicking power: 14.1 t.
  • Maximum jump height: 21 m.
  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 7.2 sec.

Type Wild (タイプワイルド Taipu Wairudo?) is Drive's dune buggy-based form. Accessed through the Shift Wild Car, this form bears the Type Wild Tire (タイプワイルドタイヤ Taipu Wairudo Taiya?). This form debuts in episode 6.

In terms of Drive's Types, this form has much more physical power than Type Speed, boosting his strength significantly and allowing him to use power-type Shift Cars like Rumble Dump with relative ease. As an added bonus, since all of Type Wild's tires are attached to Drive's right shoulder instead of around his torso, Drive can use his new strength to perform powerful shoulder checks and guard against attacks much more easily using his right shoulder. In exchange, Type Wild cannot jump nearly as high as either Type Speed or any of its Tire Exchange modes, nor is this form able to run as fast.

Drive's special ability in this form is enhanced strength and defensive capabilities. He is also capable of performing two different attacks.

  • Over Wild (オーバーワイルド Ōbā Wairudo?): After Drive lifts the Shift Car once, he uses the Type Wild Tire to shoulder check the enemy with enough force to send them flying.
  • Pile Break (パイルブレイク Pairu Bureiku?)

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the WilDrop (ワイルドロップ Wairudoroppu?).

Appearances: Episodes 6-9, Movie War Full Throttle, 10-11, 13

Type Wild Dump
KRDr-Drivewilddump

Type Wild Dump

"Tire Koukan: Rumble Dump! (Spinning drill sound, followed by a blaring horn)"
―Activation announcement[src]
  • Height: 197 cm.
  • Weight: 146.1 kg.

Ability Perimeters:

  • Maximum running speed: 100 m. per 10.6 sec.

The dump truck-based Shift Rumble Dump Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Wild into Type Wild Dump (タイプワイルドダンプ Taipu Wairudo Danpu?), which bears the drill-themed Rumble Dump Tire (ランブルダンプタイヤ Ranburu Danpu Taiya?). This mode debuts in episode 6.

Stat-wise, Type Wild Dump is basically an exaggeration of Type Wild's stats: excellent offensively and does poorly agility-wise, making this form the second slowest out of all of Drive's known forms.

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Rumble Smasher. Unlike Type Speed Dump where the Rumble Smasher goes berserk, Type Wild Dump keeps the Rumble Smasher in check thanks to Type Wild's much higher strength. Type Wild Dump's Full Throttle finisher is the DriRumble (ドリランブル Doriranburu?), where Drive slams the Rumble Smasher into the target while it is spinning at high speeds with incredible force.

Appearances: Episodes 6, 8

In this mode, Drive is armed with the Capture Hook. Type Wild Wrecker's Full Throttle finisher is the Wrecker Wind (レッカーワインド Rekkā Waindo?), where Drive extends the Capture Hook to capture an object and pull it with great force.

The ambulance-based Shift Mad Doctor Car allows Drive to upgrade Type Wild into Type Wild Doctor (タイプワイルドドクター Taipu Wairudo Dokutā?), which bears the first aid kit-themed Mad Doctor Tire (マッドドクタータイヤ Maddo Dokutā Taiya?). This mode debuts in episode 9.

Stat-wise, Type Wild Doctor has some of the best agility stats seen in any of the Type Wild forms, except for Type Wild itself. However, it has the weakest offensive stats out of Type Wild's Tire Exchange modes, though the kicking power is only marginally better than Type Wild itself.

Type Technic (タイプテクニック Taipu Tekunikku?) is Drive's garbage truck-based form. Accessed through the Shift Technic Car, this form bears the Type Technic Tire (タイプテクニックタイヤ Taipu Tekunikku Taiya?). This form debuts in episode 9.

In terms of Drive's Types, this form sits in-between Type Speed and Type Wild based on offensive power. As for agility stats, Type Technic is marginally slower than Type Wild, yet can jump higher than the aforementioned Type.

Drive's special ability in this form is being able to analyze and manipulate machinery, as well as near pin-perfect precision that allows him to swiftly react to any changes in the battlefield via analysis. He also gains eyes in the back of his head, allowing Drive to perform two tasks at once and narrow down potential blind-spots.

This Type's Full Throttle finisher is the Technidrop (テクニドロップ Tekunidoroppu?).

Behind the scenesEdit

PortrayalEdit

Shinnosuke Tomari is portrayed by Ryoma Takeuchi (竹内 涼真 Takeuchi Ryōma?)

As Kamen Rider Drive, his suit actor is Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji?) who has been the suit actor for the majority of leading Heisei Kamen Riders (except Kuuga and Hibiki).

Rider No.Edit

As the leading Rider protagonist of Kamen Rider Drive, Drive is labeled Kamen Rider #31 (仮面ライダー31号 Kamen Raidā Sanjūichigō?) and Heisei Rider #16 (平成ライダー16号 Heisei Raidā Jūrokugō?). Quiz! Decade Countdown!!

As noted by producer Shinichiro Shirakura in the run-up to the release of Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai, with the 15 Showa Riders and then 15 Heisei Riders facing off being "the point in which Heisei has finally aligned with Showa and in which both are equal", Drive, as the Rider following Gaim, marks the point where "Heisei Rider history will actually surpass Showa, making it a massive turning point for the whole franchise's history".

NotesEdit

  • Like his predecessor, Shinnosuke did not debut in the Summer Movie before his series like the previous four Kamen Riders before Gaim, who instead made his first appearance in the Kamen Rider Wizard two-part epilogue special. However, Shinnosuke is the first primary Rider since Tsukasa Kadoya to debut in his own series.
  • Shinnosuke's birthday is revealed to be December 24 in Episode 10. He is 24 years old.
    • In real life, Shinnosuke's actor, Ryoma Takeuchi was born on April 26, 1993.
  • Shinnosuke is the first lead Kamen Rider not to use a motorcycle.
    • Although Shinnosuke doesn't, the Drive that was featured in the first episode before him, Proto-Drive, was riding one.
  • Drive's Super Sentai counterpart would be Kousoku Sentai TurborangerIcon-crosswiki, Gekisou Sentai CarrangerIcon-crosswiki, and Engine Sentai Go-OngerIcon-crosswiki, due to all three teams having a car motif.
    • Coincidentally, the latter two teams had members who were in law enforcement like Shinnosuke, with SignalmanIcon-crosswiki being a part of the Space Police traffic division and Gunpei IshiharaIcon-crosswiki being a former police officer.
  • Drive's suit design resembles that of Kamen Rider Accel's.
    • Coincidentally, both Shinnosuke and Ryu work in special divisions in the police force, with Ryu working with Dopant-suspected crime scenes and Shinnosuke working with Slowdown-involved crime scenes.
    • His Turbo Smash attack is similar to Accel Trial's Machine Gun Spike Maximum Drive.
  • With his profession as a police officer, Shinnosuke is the sixth policeman transformed into a Kamen Rider after Makoto Hikawa, Masashi Sudo, Reiji Kurosaki, Ryu Terui, and Rinko Daimon.
    • However, Shinnosuke is the first police officer to become the main Rider.
  • He's the second primary Rider to drive a car-type Rider Machine since Kotaro Minami (while as Kamen Rider BLACK RX).
  • He is the first primary Rider since Gentaro Kisaragi to call himself a Kamen Rider.
  • Just like Eiji Hino, Shinnosuke requires three different transformation devices, all of which are similar: A belt (The OOO Driver and the Drive Driver), a device for the arms or hands (The OOO Scanner and the Shift Brace) and different implements which give them different powers (The Core Medals and Shift Cars).
  • Similar to Haruto Soma, Shinnosuke has a trademark favorite snack: milk pops. Also like Haruto, comedic gags often involve his eating being interrupted.
  • Drive does not possess a forehead gem on his helmet as Kamen Riders usually do. Instead, it is replaced with his emblem, a silver R stylized enough that it resembles a K and enclosing a D, which can stand for "Kamen Rider Drive". The emblem does not "light up", however, as behind it is a vertical line, similar to path "guide lights" in some dangerous roads, that flashes with his eyes as he shifts tires. Occasionally, the eyes would instead glow when he's resolved or when he's about to fight really well.
  • As Drive, similar to Takumi and Shotaro, Shinnosuke would occasionally flick his right hand during fights.
  • Drive's Type Wild bears a striking resemblance to Halo's Master Chief.
  • Shinnosuke has two main transformation poses, similar to Shouichi Tsugami. When transforming normally, he crosses his arms then rotates his hands in the image of a spinning wheel as the armor materializes, ending with spread hands, overall similar to Yuusuke Godai. When transforming inside Tridoron, he slides his hand across his face with a single thumb up, similar to Itsuro Takamizawa.
  • Shinnosuke is one of the few Heisei era Riders to be referred to and acknowledged in his own series as a Kamen Rider.
  • Shinnosuke is the first Rider since OOO to have a device from his predecessor's series.
  • Shinnosuke is simillar to Gentaro Kisaragi as both have experienced failure in accessing some forms.
    • 1st: Shinnosuke failed to access Type Wild due to a sudden bout of depression. Gentaro failed to access Elek States due to the unfamiliarity with the Elek Switch's States-changing power.
    • 2nd: Shinnosuke failed to access Type Technic due to being unable to be "cool" until the third try. Gentaro failed to access Magnet States due to the sheer power of the Magnet Switches, then the untested MagPhone, and succeeded on the third try.
  • Shinnosuke has mentioned that when he became a cop, his father has told him that being a policeman requires responsibility. This quote is very similar to the one said to Peter Parker when his uncle passed away.
  • Drive's Type Technic's mechanical abilities are similar to that of Kamen Rider Black RX's Robo Rider.
