 Koichi Kurenai is Kamen Rider Emperor King. He is the younger brother of Wataru Kurenai and the half-brother of Taiga Nobori.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Left by Maya as a child to protect him from the retribution she would face, Koichi and Wataru lived in the European-style manor that his father lived in. His brother is allergy to the "world".

FormsEdit

Emperor King has multiple forms that provide him with different weapons and abilities. Emperor King's motif is that of a vampire, with his final attacks inherited from Maya. However, unlike his predecessor, Koichi's nature as a human-fangire hybrid leaves him unable to fully utilize Emperor King's full power with the Catena Chains. Additionally, Tatsulot and Zanbat serve as restraints to keep the power of Emperor King from taking complete control of Koichi.

Emperor Form is the true form of Emperor King, referred to as the Golden Emperor King and the most powerful form at Hayato's disposal. The fifth form accessed, the first emergence of Emperor Form comes about from the reaction to Hayato's rage from the harm coming to Mio, his brother's girlfriend, which summoned the Demon Imperial Dragon Tatsulot to awaken the form. By pulling the switch on Tatsulot's head, Hayato can activate Tatsulot's Imperial Slot and activate one of several "Fever" finishing attacks through a roulette system. With this form, Emperor King can destroy both the body and the soul of a Fangire.

Because of this, Hayato has gradually abandoned using his other forms in favor of Emperor Form. Emperor Form initially appeared in promotions for Kamen Rider Kiva: King of the Castle in the Demon World at the Tokyo Toy Show 2008.

On the album SUPERNOVA by TETRA-FANG, Emperor Form is oddly referred to as "Empire form."

Emperor Form's ending theme is entitled "Supernova".

Bloody RoseEdit

Bloodyrose

Bloody Rose

Main article: Bloody Rose

A unique violin, the Bloody Rose was created by Otoya and Maya as the "ultimate violin", later rumored to be a product of Otoya selling his soul to the devil himself, which is not entirely false, in a sense. The Bloody Rose only sounds whenever a violent Fangire is detected in the area, its music only heard by Kivat and Wataru, who hears it as a voice commanding him to "Fight", as it pinpoints the exact location the Fangire could be found. When played, the Bloody Rose can also disrupt a Fangire's activity. However, the Bloody Rose is sympathic to Wataru's mentality as it cracked when he fell into a deep depression. However, after repairing it, Wataru learns the Bloody Rose holds the desires of his father, placing in it his own desire to assume Flight-Style.
