I don’t know why but I just have this feeling that this seasons is going to be based on either time travel or maybe prehistoric animals.

I first came across the trademark on my Twitter timeline earlier this month, and I have to say that it has this old-school quality to it which caught my eye, like it could be the name of a Showa-era Rider or something.

I do wonder what'll be the theme for this one; there are countless for "Ji-Oh" to be written in kanji. You guys have come up with some great theories, though, like the Olympic Games one (though there's a part of me that thinks Toei could be most likely saving that theme for the 2020 Sentai).

Does anyone think that maybe Zi-O has something more to do with an element of the show and the main rider could be called something else. Because I’ve been researching O as it relates to Japanese culture and I came up with marujirushi which is a mark to signify outstanding performance in school and sports. Or cold also represent the end of a sentence. So my guess would be the show could be centered a tournament similar to dragonball’s world martial arts tournament. So my wild guess is that it could be a martial arts motif maybe mixed with elements or maybe weather. This title is so vague compared to what we’ve gotten these last couple of years. Or maybe it could be a bunch of novice Kamen riders competing for the title of the 20th Kamen rider. That would be interesting since we really haven’t had multiple riders start a series since Blade.

Indeed, it's not quite as in your face as Kamen Rider Wizard or Ghost. So far, it really is anybody's guess, kinda like, say, Gaim; I don't remember anyone predicting that Gaim would have a motif of fruits when the trademark was first leaked.

That could be cool!!

Doesn't the kanji used for the "O" in "ZI-O" mean "king"?

There are no Kanji, it's katakana. The only Kanji in the name are the ones in Kamen.

Ex-Aid wasn't vague?

Sure "aid" might have suggested hospital or medical but before we got the rumor or story it could have been anything.


ZI-O could be a steampunk rider for all we know.

Yeah, we’re still well in the fog on this one. Unfortunately we have extremely little to go on until rumors come in.

Right now we’ve got that Ji/Zi can be related to the number 2 and can also function as a “counter” somewhat like “o’clock”. Also, google translate says it can mean teeth? Should probs check with someone who actually speaks more than super basic Japanese. 👌🏻

While “Oh” can mean king, O can mean small, a prefix to make a word polite, it can also mean zero, and is a sign used in some books, apparently.

"ji" can mean a ton of different things depending on the kanji used. The most probably ones (just cause a lot of others don't make sense) are 字 from Kanji, 時 from o'clock, 地 meaning "earth", or 路 meaning "path" or road.

I got bored after Finals so I decided to do more research on the title Zi-O and I found out that O in Egyptian hieroglyphics means honorable. So then I looked into the alleged leaked images and zoomed in on one of the images and blew up the henshin belt a little bit. From what it looks like the Henshin design resemble sort of sarcophagus. Also the emblems that are on the gimmick is supposed to represent hieroplyphics of some sort. Maybe the name Zi-O actually does mean character king and the characters they are talking about are hieroglyphs.

Well, they're mostly each Rider's symbol... if you mean the new Riders, what hieroglyphic does their symbol represent?

It's a pretty interesting theory on the whole, though. It could just be coincidence and confirmation bias, but it's a nice analysis all the same.

The idea of an Egyptian-themed Rider has me very interested...

That sounds interesting, not gonna lie.

No rumors yet, though? Weird.

Just looked at the alleged leaked images.

The form bodies seem to be correlated to the gimmick slot.
Left is the right arm, and upper torso; middle is the left arm and lower torso; right is the legs.
The helmet could likely be a mix of all three (mouthpiece, eyes, "head crest").
They follow the same design pattern as the base suit, but all have minor differences.

Also, call me crazy, but in those same images.... I think I see miniature Rider faces at the top of their helmets. Like, the "main" rider's base form looks like he has a mini Ichigo or V3.

Don't worry, I saw those too. If these are real, they're going to be very interesting to see in-full!

I agree wholeheartedly!

Honestly, I'd like for this to be real, just to see where'd they go with it.

Exactly! Each rider could represent some type of Hieroglyph. Also there are many hieroglyphs with many meanings but from this website I would say the closest to the new rider’s would be the bee

It's either a genuine leak or someone doing a very good job of making it look official. So even if it is fake, the faker's work is commendable.

But the vast majority of the Rider's symbols would've been designed before Zi-O was an idea, so they wouldn't deliberately be representative of hieroglyphs. And then what? "Gaim's looks a little like the hieroglyph for wheel... so, err, let's make that work somehow..."

There's definitely a similarity between the symbol for "Ichigo" and "Zerogo" and the bee hieroglyph, though, I'll give you that. Again, doesn't mean it's intentional, but I won't outright dismiss the idea because who knows?

"Assembly + adventure", the alleged leaked images, and the idea of an Egyptian/Heiroglyph-themed Rider altogether just sounds amazing
