Kick Hopper question *spoilers*

Because having more riders than a Sentai team can be good.

Kick Hopper question *spoilers*

Post by xbiBox » Wed Sep 01, 2010 10:21 am

Why does Kick Hopper have such a following? I admit Yaguruma was a cool character AND the Kick Hopper design is awesome. I honestly thought Kageyama was simply a temporary TheBee until Yaguruma would've gotten it back, but he did nearly NOTHING except be emo while he was Kick Hopper.

I would've loved it if somehow he was able to take over Zect, making Kick Hopper the series' Final Boss, but all he did really was mope around. I don't get it!!

I like Kickhopper, because of his cool suit design and "kickass" finishing move. Being a grasshopper-themed double rider w/ Punchhopper, they're like the evil versions of Ichigo and Nigo, which of course pays a stylistic tribute to them. Plus somehow he is a good variety for a rider in contrast with the other Zect riders. Lastly, who doesn't love a rainy bromance tragic story.

Also, this person would like a word with you. :P

The hoppers rule for the following reasons:

a) they're based on grasshoppers which is as old-school Rider as you can get design-wise
b) they're from hell AND they'll send u there too
c) they can't clock up but they still wail on everyone
d) one only punches and one only kicks, that much confidence in style and execution can only come from mental instability, like an idiot savant but with rider skillzzz
e) belts are super tight
f) cool "i don't care" henshin styles

alright that's about it

I love the suit design too, and I find the tribute-ish thing cool as well, it's just that they weren't seen in the series enough nor did they have much of an involvement it its plot for me to really find them as iconic as they're made out to be. When they were mashed with Tsurugi and were sort of relegated to being comic relief, I just about lost it.

They never show it in show, but the video games show they can clock up.

Kick Hopper I like. Never a big fan of Punch Hopper though. Kageyama is just a pansy.
