Kamen Rider V3 (character)

Kamen Rider V3 (仮面ライダーV3, Kamen Raidā Buisurī?) is a fictional character from the Japanese tokusatsu television series Kamen Rider V3, the second in the famous Kamen Rider franchise of tokusatsu programs. The primary protagonist of the series, Kamen Rider V3 is a motorcycle-riding superhero modeled upon a dragonfly and armed with a variety of powers. His name is an abbreviation for "Version Three" as he is the third Kamen Rider. In the original series, he was portrayed by Hiroshi Miyauchi. In the movie Kamen Rider The Next, V3 is portrayed by Kazuki Kato. V3 is voiced by Hirofumi Tanaka in most of his modern appearances, including Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max and Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen.

The meaning for Kamen Rider V3's name was never clearly depicted in the series. The first meaning suggested it was a pun because both 1 and 2 used their powers to energize V3's belt during Shiro Kazami's surgery, specifically 1's skills and 2's strength, making him more powerful than its predecessors. However, in the 2007 remake movie Kamen Rider The Next, V3's belt explains it stands for "Version 3" Kamen Rider.
