|~ Akira Date to Gotou's|
Akira Date (伊達 明 Date Akira) is a combat medic who traveled the world much like Eiji Hino, who he saw in Africa during a Civil War and had an bullet stuck in his brain after being shot which causes him great pain at times. When he comes back to Japan he is hired by the Kougami Foundation to be the user of the Kamen Rider Birth system so to earn one hundred million Yen for the surgery to remove the said bullet. He was later wounded on the job to the point where he can no longer fight effectively and resigned his position from the Kougami Foundation, obtaining his money and leaves the country to get his surgery done with Shintaro succeeding him. Later, he returns after recuperating from his surgery and becomes the user of Birth Prototype Version ((仮面ライダーバース・プロトタイプ Kamen Raidā Bāsu Purototaipu) to fight against the Greeed.
