"She fought more than enough. She'll never be called a Kamen Rider! She's now a normal human!"
Shigeru Jo to the Badan Cyborg 13's Leader and the reason why Tackle is not considered a Kamen Rider.[src]

Yuriko Misaki (岬 ユリコ Misaki Yuriko?) is the Electro-Wave Human Tackle (電波人間タックル Denpa Ningen Takkuru?, literally "Electromagnetic Wave Human Tackle") from Kamen Rider Stronger. She is portrayed by the late Okada Kyôko, and in Kamen Rider Decade: Final Chapter, she is portrayed by Alice Hirose. While a female warrior with a mask, scarf, and transformation belt, she was not labeled as a Kamen Rider.

In the manga Kamen Rider Spirits, it gives the explanation why she was never given the title.

Yuriko Misaki Edit

Yuriko Misaki (岬 ユリコ Misaki Yuriko?) was a newly finished cyborg ready to serve the evil Black Satan organization but she was still inactive. Everything changed as her soon-to-be best friend Shigeru Jo entered the room she was staying in trying to find a way out of Black Satan`s secret lair, found her on an operating table and awakens her. After some talk he convinced her to come with him and together with a good friend to many Kamen Riders, Tōbei Tachibana they fought the Black Satan as Kamen Rider Stronger and the Electro-Wave Human Tackle for quite some time. Over time she fell in love with him. But sadly Yuriko gave her life to defeat the evil Doctor Kate in order to save Shigeru from being poisoned. This would forever haunt him and pushed him to undergo surgery in order attain the even more powerful (and dangerous) Charge Up form.

Kamen Rider SpiritsEdit

In Kamen Rider Spirits, Shigeru has flashbacks about her when he falls upon Yuriko's shrine while escaping from the ZX Army. He remembers why she was never given the title "Kamen Rider": because she had already fought enough, and was now a normal woman.

Kamen Rider DecadeEdit

Net moviesEdit

In the net movie spin-offs of the Kamen Rider Decade movie, Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, they have a different take on Shigeru`s feelings toward Yukiro being a Kamen Rider or not in the first webisode, Petition! Kamen Rider Tackle!!. Here, he meets with Tsukasa Kadoya and the other members of the Hikari Photo Studio, wanting to petition Toei to recognize Tackle as a Kamen Rider and asking for their support. When the group gets to Toei's offices, however, they're surprised to find that Tackle is herself the recruiting director who decides which characters are Riders and which aren't.

World of StrongerEdit

The original Yuriko Misaki meets Tsukasa/Decade and the Hikari Studio crew when they travel to the World of Stronger in the SIC Hero Saga Kamen Rider Decade: World of Stronger.

OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen RidersEdit

Tackle was part of a group of reinforcement riders led by Akira Date/Kamen Rider Birth to aid the primary riders in defeating the Rock Great Leader. All the Kamen Riders got on their bikes and performed the All Rider Break attack which destroyed the Great Leader. OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders

Vehicle Edit

Tentolaw Edit

Stronger-ar-tentoroh

Tentoroh.

Main article: Tentolaw

Tackle's motorcycle, which is what Tackle looked like. Tentolaw's top speed was 250km/h (approx. 155 mph). Tentolaw did not transform into a normal motocycle for Yuriko to ride on. There is a verse about Tentolaw in the song Kabutolaw Boogie. It is a play on the Japanese word "tentomushi", which means ladybug.

TechniquesEdit

  • Shockwave Toss: Tackle's commonly used non-physical technique, it can disorient a group of Black Satan Soldiers or an average Kikkaijin.
  • Ultra Cyclone: A risky last resort attack, used to destroy Doctor Kate.

HomageEdit

KamenRiderLady

Kamen Rider Lady.

Tackle received a homage in the form of Kamen Rider Lady, a rider who appeared in a stage show of Kamen Rider Kabuto. Kabuto himself is a homage to Stronger, sharing his Japanese rhinoceros beetle (kabutomushi) motif.

Behind the scenesEdit

PortrayalEdit

Yuriko Misaki was portrayed by Kyōko Okada (岡田 京子 Okada Kyōko?), born Kyoko Hanada, she was given her stage name by the president of Toei at the time. For several years she maintained a very close friendship with Takeshi Sasaki (Hayato Ichimonji/Kamen Rider #2) even after they had both left the series. Okada studied ballet and in one fight scene in Kamen Rider Stronger can be seen executing a ballet turn. She was asthmatic, however, so the contrivance of her trademark "Electro Wave Toss" was developed to allow her to do only a minimum of stage fighting. She died at the age of 27 due to a severe asthma attack. Takeshi Sasaki was reportedly deeply shocked upon receiving news of her death. [1]

NotesEdit

  • If one were to count her as a Kamen Rider, then she is the first Rider that was killed and not revived.
  • In the Kamen Rider Official Data Files, Yuriko is classified as a Kamen Rider.
  • The line in Kamen Rider Spirits about why Yuriko is never called a Kamen Rider has been misinterpreted by some fans as sexist. The meaning behind it is that a Kamen Rider's life is one of endless battle and sacrificing one's happiness to protect others. Shigeru's feelings convey that she did not deserve such a cruel fate and that her sacrifice to protect him was more than enough to deem her a hero in his eyes.
