Character HistoryEdit

First AppearanceEdit

His Bugster Union form took control of Rensuke Natori, quickly being beaten by Brave Quest Gamer Level 1. Aranbura formed alongside several hooded monk Bugster Viruses (and several of Salty's cook Viruses), escaping as Genm intervenes. He later attacks Rensuke's fiance, Asami Goda, to cause Rensuke stress, threatening her life to keep Ex-Aid from leveling up to Action Gamer Level 2. Brave, however, arrives and levels up, grabbing a sword summoned by the Game Area of his Taddle Quest Gashat and slashing Aranbura before he could act on his threat. He then fights the two Riders, using an assortment of magic spells such as binding vines and self-healing, but is eventually defeated. Another Prodigy with No Thank You?

Level 5, Second AppearanceEdit

He reappears infecting a new patient who happens to be dying due to having a cancer, separating without a Bugster Union and taking an upgraded Level 5 form. He fights Brave and Ex-Aid again, this time with a new stronger spell that lets him freeze his opponents, before Genm Zombie Gamer Level X arrives, fighting and forcing the Riders to cancel their transformations. He later challenges Brave again, fighting his Level 3 form before Snipe and Genm Zombie Gamer Level X join in, Ex-Aid eventually joining as Level XX. Defined Destiny

The Bugsters originate as the microscopic Bugster Virus (バグスターウイルス Bagusutā Uirusu), a result of humans being contaminated by the Bugster, thus developing the condition known as the Game Disease (ゲーム病 Gēmu-byō).

The Bugster Union (バグスターユニオン Bagusutā Yunion) is the monster form of a Bugster-infected patient when the virus first flares up. When a Bugster-infected patient experiences enough stress, the Bugster Viruses inside multiply rapidly and overtake the patient's body, forming a giant orange virus form around it; the Union's shape seems largely irrelevant to the Bugster's appearance. Bugster Unions can only be defeated by a Kamen Rider in Level 1; the reason why is unexplained, though it may be because other Levels are too strong and may injure the patient inside the Union.

The Aranbura Bugster is armed with Aranbura Staff (アランブラスタッフ Aranbura Sutaffu), a red staff with a ruby at the top. With this staff, Aranbura can use various magic abilities such as binding his victim with plants, attacking his opponents with electricity bolts, and healing himself.

Manifesting into his monster form immediately from Hiiro's patient Kazuki Shirakawa, who is dying from cancer. After his Level 5 physical body is destroyed by Ex-Aid's Double Action Gamer Level XX R and L, Aranbura is imprisoned within the Gashacon Bugvisor by Kuroto Dan.

Aranbura (アランブラ) is the old Katakana spelling of the 8th century Spanish palace Alhambra (アルハンブラ Aruhanbura, "The Red One").


  • The Aranbura Bugster being a dragon monster and fighting a knight-themed Rider, Kamen Rider Brave, is based on the classic knight-vs.-dragon rivalry in mainstream Western literatures.
    • It's worth noting that the villain of first Dragon Quest game who Aranbura Bugster may be based on was Dragonlord, who shared many similarities with the Disney villain Maleficent, including her ability to turn into a dragon. However, Aranbura Bugster has yet to display this ability himself.

  • Aranbura Bugster can uses various magic abilities from magical circles much like Kamen Rider Wizard. Also, both Aranbura Bugster and Kamen Rider Wizard have a dragon motif.
