Rider is a character in the Splatoon manga and is a temporary member of the S4.


He wears the Fake Contacts, the Black Inky Rider, and the Octoling Boots. In the Hero Mode arc, he wears the Hero Headset Replica, the Hero Jacket Replica with the Black Inky Rider on top, and the Hero Runner Replicas. He uses the Hero Roller Replica in the Hero Mode arc. His weapon is the Gold Dynamo Roller and, in volume 8, 10, 38 and 39, the Kensa Dynamo Roller.


Rider has a tough personality. He seems to be short tempered. After battling alongside the S4 temporarily, Rider began to care more for his teammates. He still has a serious attitude, but it’s nowhere as extreme as it was before. While sanitized he only cares about destroying things and seems to have reverted back to being tough and uncaring. After being freed from his initial sanitization, he becomes grateful to Goggles, Eight and Team Blue but still thinks that they are ridiculous: "But thanks all the same," he states after he is freed, in which Goggles pantses him.


  • Rider temporarily replaces Army when he is injured in the Square Ranked Battle Cup arc.
  • Rider didn’t like to team up, but when he lost to Team Blue, he realized that he needs teamwork to win.
  • Rider "takes good care" of his weapon.
