Fictional character biography

At the age of 11, Kenzaki was orphaned when his family died in a freak fire accident. The powerlessness he felt would forever served as the motivation to try and protect the defenseless, subsequently leading to being scouted by BOARD. Because of his intelligence and exceptional survival tactics, he would eventually be promoted to field operative and the designated user of Rider System-02. However, during assessment for the Rider System, Kenzaki displayed unusually high fusion coefficiency. Though this caused no immediate concern, as his levels maintained steady intervals. After being promoted to Rider status, Kenzaki would be paired with fellow BOARD Rider and senior operative Sakuya Tachibana in hunting down three Undead within a period of two months.

After sealing the Bat Undead, meets a web-journalist named Kotarō Shirai, who begins investigating the Riders after witnessing Kenzaki carelessly changed back from Rider form. To lessen the risk of exposure, and to find a place to board after losing his apartment for not paying his rent in time, Kenzaki made a deal with Kotarō: In exchange for information concerning the Riders, Kotarō would provide a place for Kenzaki to stay; being that his salary with BOARD was barely enough to make a living. But later that evening, disaster struck as BOARD HQ fell under attack from the Locust Undead. With Tachibana walking off without offering aid and Karasuma no where to be found, Kenzaki and Shiori set-up a new base of operations in Kotarō's home, using whatever equipment left undamaged during the Undead Raid on BOARD HQ. Though operating at a limit capacity, Kenzaki, Hirose, and Kotarō successful began track and sealing any active Undead in the area. But eventually Kenzaki began tracking down his renegade partner Tachibana, eventually leading to an encounter with Chalice, whose attempts to befriend him ended sourly.

Kenzaki was later kidnaped by Isaka's men to be used in a experiment to test the human/Category Ace fusion ratio by pitting him against the Trilobite Undead, his fusion rate increasing upon seeing Hajime with his captors before Chalice gets involved as well before Garren provides backup. After that Kenzaki learns that Hajime is a Undead, confronting him before they fight until the Zebra Undead start his attack. Though he knew that Chalice was a Undead operating under the alias, Hajime Aikawa, Kenzaki eventually believed that there's some good in Hajime and that he's not the monster he originally though him to be.

However, once Griffa Undead was sealed, Hajime begins to lose control and his impulse as Joker comes forth with the Stone of Sealing creating his army of DarkRoaches to eliminate all humans. In the end, Kamen Rider Blade is the only one to combat him head on, both equal in power, intend on saving Hajime from himself.

In the series ending, Kenzaki sacrificed his humanity in order to save Hajime, thus becoming the Navy Joker. Hajime is allowed to keep his Human Spirit card to maintain his disguise and stays with the Kurihara family for the rest of his life; but still remembers what Kenzaki has done for him for if he and Kenzaki cross paths, fate will step in and force them to fight.

In the movie Missing Ace, however, he was forced to seal Hajime as the Joker Undead, effectively ending the Battle Royale. Four years after, he became a garbage man who witnessed the combat of the New BOARD Riders when the Albino Joker released half of the Undead, eventually joining them back as Blade after Leangle resealed his Category Ace. He asked Leangle to unseal the Joker Undead so as to save Amane from the AlbiRoaches. When she was sealed by the Albino Joker to access Jashin 14, he intended to exchange his life for her, but was pushed over by Hajime to be sacrificed instead. Once more he was forced to seal Hajime to weaken Jashin 14, then killed it and the Albino Joker in it with King Form.

Transformations

Ace Form

*Rider height: 201cm
*Rider weight: 101kg
*Ability perimeters
**Punching power: 2.8t
**Kicking power: 4.8t
**Maximum jump height: 33m
**Maximum running speed: 100m/5.7sThe Ace Form is the default transformation of Rider System-02. The transformation harnesses the Beetle Undead DNA from the A: "Change Beetle" Rouse Card, utilizing the Blay Buckle Rider System to fuses the Beetle Undead's DNA with Kazuma Kenzaki transforming him into "Kamen Rider Blade". This Rider form has no distinguishing capabilities or attributes apart from the other Riders except its melee-oriented design; its ability to modify its capabilities with Rouse Cards is the only note worth mentioning.

Jack Form

*Rider height: 201cm
*Rider weight: 111kg
*Ability perimeters
**Punching power: 3.5t
**Kicking power: 5.5t
**Maximum jump height: 133m
**Maximum running speed: 100m/4.6sThe Jack Form is a combat extension of the Rider System which harnesses the power of Category Jack Rouse Cards (in the case of Blade, the Jack: "Fusion Eagle") via the Rouse Absorber. Initiating Blade's Jack Form transmogrifies the Rider Armor with the attributes and characteristics of the Eagle Undead DNA with the J: "Fusion Eagle" card, as well as enhancing Blade's combat perimeters. Blade's Jack Form imparts a number of enhancements; the first being the enhancement of the Blayrouzer through a blade extension. Outside of this cosmetic appendage, the Blayrouzer essentially functions the same. The second advancement is the addition of reinforced golden-armor plating which increase resilience to impact damage. But the most drastic modification is the inclusion of wings, which enables flight for the Rider.

King Form

*Rider height: 201cm
*Rider weight: 131kg
*Ability perimeters
**Punching power: 4.5t
**Kicking power: 7.0t
**Maximum jump height: 25m
**Maximum running speed: 100m/6.6sThe King Form is the ultimate combat extension of the Rider System, which only Blade can obtain. Using the Rouse Absorber, this transformation is initiated using the K's "EVOLUTION KING" effect in conjunction with the Q's "ABSORB QUEEN" effect. The King Form addresses many issues with Blade's combat capabilities such as defense. However, with all these improvements, Blade's King Form suffers from one glaring flaw: Kazuma Kenzaki. Initial specs intended only for the Blade Rider System to extend its combat capacities with the K: "Evolution Caucasus", but due to Kenzaki's unusually high fusion coefficiency the system exceeded its perimeters and exposed a disastrous glitch in the overall Rider System. In the case of individuals like Kenzaki, activating the King Form extension initiates the fusion of, not just one, but the DNA of ALL 13 sealed Undead associated with a particular card-suit. With extended activity in this form, the subject's fusion coefficiency would raise exponentially, ultimately mutating the human being into a Joker-type Undead. To that end, use on Kenzaki's part, was strictly cautioned and advised only as a last resort.

Gear & Accessories

;Blay Buckle:Designated "Rider System 02", this transformation device was the second Rider System developed by B.O.A.R.D. intended as a mean to combat the Undead via the fusion of Undead DNA and human DNA. The Blay Buckle was designed for specific compatibility with the A: "Change Beetle" Rouse Card and harnesses the DNA of the Beetle Undead. This model utilizes the "Turn-Up" mechanism to produce a stationary transformation screen, which initiates the fusion of Undead DNA with a human to produce the Kamen Rider transformation. Coincidentally, the transformation screen itself can act as a deflective wall against assaults.

;Blayrouzer:AP Cache: 5000AP; 7400AP (after initiating Jack Form):Blade’s primary armament; a hi-tech saber which serves as a weapon for combat and storage unit for Rouse Cards, including Proper Blanks. It has a built-in 'rousing' technology, which enables Blade to "rouse" the sealed Undead's power to utilize personally. After activating "Jack Form", the Blayrouzer gains an enhancement in the form of a blade extension. Its extended length aside, all of the standard features and functions remain intact, although now its AP Cache has been largely expanded.

;Rouse Absorber:A special accessory developed by Kei Karasuma to bolster the Rider’s capabilities. The Rouse Absorber was designed to be a supplementary Rouse device to Rider System and specialized container for the top category Rouse Cards. Its system was designed to harness the J: "Fusion Eagle", Q: "Absorb Capricorn" and K: "Evolution Caucasus" Rouse Cards and is only compatible with those cards. Initiating either Jack Form or King Form, modifies the Rouse Absorber with a signature spade-plaque (a spade-eagle plaque for Jack Form; spade-Caucasus plaque for King Form). Though the Rouse Absorber is dubbed "King Absorber" henceforth, the modification, in either case, proves more cosmetic if anything.

;King Rouzer:AP Cache: 9600

;Blue Spader
*Length: 2070mm
*Width: 810mm
*Height: 1410mm
*Top speed: 340km/h:The Blue Spader is a motorbike developed by B.O.A.R.D. specifically designed to the aspects of Kamen Rider Blade's Rider System.
