I think maybe we could get some Faiz elements with maybe a MP3 player/Walkman henshin belt. One thing Faiz did well that Megaranger didn’t do well in is making the arsenal feel more realistic while also looking more stylized.

It would be ironic how the riders with numbers 555 and Fourze have the least forms but have a fuck ton of gear.

For me, it's just fun to speculate and let my mind run wild with ideas. We also have some very interesting hints, especially "Business vs. Business." What sort of business would make a rider system? Why? Does the other business make kaijins?

Then if you add in the "G3 Unit + Exterminators (from Amazonz)" hint, it's hard not to ignore the idea of a business with a unit of mass-production pseudo-riders. Maybe it's just the writer in me, but I have so much fun with this every year.

While the most evident "villainous corporation" in KR up to now is Smart Brain of Faiz (who basically was just screwing with things and just had some members more evidently on the payroll or hired like Lucky Clover) and the most evident "heroic corporation" (or the closest to it) is the Kougami Foundation of OOO (you could say BOARD but they were just sort of a group that had Riders on the payroll and didn't matter after the first couple episodes outside some endgame stuff anyway), I could see a lot of elements of corporate sabotage and espionage if done right. Have a Rider who works for the bad guys at the start, realizes it and escapes with their technology, ultimately working with another corporation who starts researching it thus turning it into an arms race between the two of them. It feels like a modern take on a Showa-style conflict and somehow I could like if they do it that way.

Yeah, for every accurate guess there's a wildly off one. From memory; Drive being computer themed, Ghost being fashion or special ops themed (though fashion was a little bit right), Build being construction themed.
I still believe that that ghost rumor was based on early talks and ended up being why the ghosts took the form of hoodies.

On a separate note; the then rumored use of pinback buttons/badges to transform needs to be implemented some day since that would be a brilliant collectible!

Pretty sure Foundation X is pretty villainous. Oh my god what if this is finally a series focusing on them as the main threat!

I would honestly hate that so much. I think Foundation X needs to be allowed to die.

I completely understand the appeal of a Shocker for all the post Decade series, but KR’s inconsistent continuity, the villain’s various conflicting plans that make no sense as to why they’d need to be funded, and FX’s complete inability to serve as a bridge between the series meant that they were largely going to be “responsible” by showing up and claiming credit, only to disappear a moment later, never to be seen or heard from again.

Foundation X are bad in the same way that Zemo from CA: Civil War and Mads Mikkelsen’s character in Spectre are bad. Claiming responsibility for all the evil goings-on generally just leads to a shitload of plot holes.

I get the feeling this happens a lot. I remember years ago there being rumors for the secondary Rider in Wizard being dice-themed and while Beast was hardly dice-themed himself he has a dice-themed weapon. The "rumor guys" might sometimes be sharing tidbits while Toei and Bandai are still spitballing which is why there are nuggets of truth to the rumors so often, even if it was overall wrong.

Maybe Zero-1 could be the spiritual successor to Zi-O and have him be a cyborg. Like maybe a experiment or an accident. That would lend really well to the Spider-Man rumors and also satisfy the G-3 rumors.

Forgot about Namba Industries. Who funded Faust and the Rider Project in Build and basically started civil war. Then others like Foundation X Yggdrasil and Gemn Corp.

I meeeeeeean... He doesn’t /have/ to be the spiritual successor because he’s the literal successor. Also how does one accidentally become a cyborg?

Doesn't sound possible lol although you could be one without knowing it (Utsumi in Build comes to mind)

I think they meant the protagonist has a bad accident and to save his life he is fitted with cybernetics

Haven't seen Build or Ex-Aid and Foundation X is more just evil scientists.

Yggdrasil though...the thing about them is that considering the situation with them is more just dependent on the member (Zangetsu had noble intentions despite the cold manner he handled things, Duke just basically being way too obsessed with science, the factor they were more into having Rider mooks than the MotW like the Inves...and Micchi just going nuts despite Kouta's obsession in saving him), its' slightly different than Smart Brain.

Were they? It seemed like their main function was a business that invested in different projects. Whenever they showed up it was because they were funding some villain's plan.

I doubt it but do you think we'll get something like Kamen Rider Gaia?

Kamen Rider 3 and Kamen Rider Gaia both started out as obscure manga-only Riders and one of them got reintroduced for a movie, so Zero-One taking inspiration from Gaia or having Gaia appear in a movie isn't impossible.
