Red Mine Toad

Red Mine Toad (アカ地雷ガマ, Aka Jirai Gama, 41-42): is a powerful Destructoid with extremely destructive powers.


Since his first appearance, Red Mine Toad has shown himself to be the same as most other Destructoids in terms of personality. Unlike some other Destructoids though, he also showed little to no fear towards Hakaider, who easily scared off other DARK members even in his human form. This is presumably because of his victory towards Jiro , which he boasted a number of times. Despite being a very cocky and arrogant Destructoid who was confident in his powers, this would later prove to be his undoing. Instead of fighting Hakaider without his injury, he opted to face him without the ability to explode others with his touch (even though it was the only reason for his victory against Jiro) which led to his defeat.


When Red Mine Toad first appeared, he revealed his powers to Gill and confidently stated that he would defeat Kikaider for him. Using a fake letter to lure the Komyoji siblings, he then engaged Jiro in combat. With the help of Gill's flute and use of his long tongue as well as his "Inferno Hell" attack, he was able to put Jiro in a major disadvantage. Use of his "Inferno Hell" attack was used against him however, when Jiro used it to drown out the flute's sound and transform into his battle form.

Due to Jiro not knowing his opponent's full powers, he was defeated trying to perform his "Kaiten Attack" which only resulted in him exploding. With Jiro defeated, Red Mine Toad ordered the Android Men to search for their foe's exploded parts. When they found Hanpei, Red Mine Toad demanded him to give Kikaider's destroyed parts. When Hanpei was about to (and somewhat did, as he gave Kikaider's arms to the Android Men), Saburo appeared and threw his knife in Red Mine Toad's chest. Despite stating himself as stronger than Kikaider when Saburo challenged him to a duel, he later learned that Saburo purposely aimed for his chest to cut the cord for his exploding powers, rendering said power unusable.

Without that ability, Red Mine Toad proved to be little to no threat for Hakaider, who easily dominated him in battle. Unwilling to admit his defeat, Red Mine Toad repeatedly stated himself as stronger than Kikaider and in a last ditch effort, tried to use his bomb attack. Before Red Mine Toad could release his bomb however, Saburo used his Hakaider Shot to shoot the bomb causing it to explode along with Red Mine Toad himself. This would later partially be the reason for Hakaider's breakdown, which lasted until Jiro was fully resurrected.


It was shown that Red Mine Toad is a very powerful enemy, even among other Dark Members. Aside from burrowing power, he has bombs in the abdomen called the Black Ball Bombs, a long tongue that could stop even Jiro in his human form, and a 5000 degree flamethrower in his mouth called the Inferno Hell. His most powerful ability however, is the ability to explode enemies on physical contact powered by a core in his torso. The full effects of the power was not explained, but it was enough to severely break Kikaider's body, although it was unable to outright kill him or cause irreversible damage. This makes him an even more dangerous enemy towards close combat fighters. It was shown however, that if the cord for it is cut, said power becomes unusable. It seems that long range attacks are also effective against him as well.
