Listen, say what you like about Takumi but he did some serious laundry during 555. Agito's Hikawa did very little but his police work. Even the Blade Riders, who are otherwise doing pretty badly in the game of life, managed to convince me that their employment wasn't a total disaster.
The Riders on this list, however, should never have been hired in the first place.
5. Tendou (Kamen Rider Kabuto)
It's kind of unfair of me to include Tendou on this list, because I'm not actually sure if he even is employed. But let's say he is, because it might drive me into rage overdrive to imagine Tendou somehow has tons of money sitting around for no good reason. Unless this guy's job is being a smug dick in coffee houses, I think it's fair to say he's a crappy employee.
4. Eiji and Gotou (Kamen Rider OOO)
|Seriously guys, can I get some coffee?|
Oh right, you're probably coming up with the restaurant's next ludicrously expensive theme. Can someone please explain the concepts of "revenue", "expenses" and "Chiyoko should be bankrupt by now" to Toei?
3. Ryoutarou (Kamen Rider Den-O)
Ostensibly Ryoutarou also works as a waiter, this time at his sister's coffee house. I say "ostensibly" because I think I saw him serve someone coffee about two times in the entire series. The rest of the time he was making mess for the Doctor to undo later down the line.
2. Wataru (Kamen Rider Kiva)
Wataru has a rather unusual profession: he makes and repairs violins for a living. Now, call me crazy but that's something of a niche market. It's the kind of thing you need to advertise, you know? Put up adverts online or in the paper, have a sign outside so people know where to find you. Maybe even set up a shop so it's easier for potential customers to reach you. When you live in an intimidating mansion with iron gates and barely ever leave the house, only people who either a) already know about your services or b) need a violin and are prepared to hire a private detective to find a violin maker are going to reach you.
And I just don't think the number of people in Tokyo who really desperately, like medically need violins is that high? How do you even pay your utility bills, Wataru? Last time I checked nobody was handing out cash for having moody teenage crises of identity. I mean let's face it, if they were most characters in Kamen Rider would be hooked up.
1. Ryu (Kamen Rider W)
|TERUI SAD FOR FAMILY. TERUI SMASH.|
Happily, Ryu himself is redeemed by the series and eventually stops trying to bludgeon half of Fuuto with his nightstick, but my real question here is what is wrong with the Fuuto police department? Why is this guy still employed? They promoted him, even!
In a way, Akiko ruined Ryu's career. If she hadn't taught him the value of not being a psychotic asshole he might have made Inspector for kettling someone by now.
