    I like Shin. He canonically just wants a hug, even if too many parts of him can cut through anything. He is, however, and awesome monstrous design that better evokes them "genetic mutation experiment gone wrong" that the original Kamen Rider never did. 8/10, especially for how old the costume is, it looks damn good.

    ZO and J are easily Black/RX tier as far as classy, simplistic designs, even if they're just a tad plain. They almost feel like they could be part of that show as secondary riders, even alt forms for RX, but I like how they evoke the Ichigo/Nigo pair and complement one another. 9/10.

    Oh boy, Heisei's coming up, where my opinions on certain suits become... tumultuous.

    Anything to say about the rest of Showa before we move onto Heisei?

    Shin - 6/10
    ZO - 7/10
    J - 5/10

    Oh boy, I don't envy you once you get to all of the form changes in the later half of the Heisei run.

    Kuuga - 10/10

    Shin: 8/10. Very organic, very creepy but its intention is to set itself apart from the other Rider designs and it does it well.

    ZO/J: 7/10. Alright, but nothing special. Just average.
    Kuuga: 8.7/10. The helmet design and crest look great. I love the red, black, and gold color palette. However, I am not a big fan of the chestplate design.

    Shin - 5 out of 5, it did what it set out to do, make a kaijin a Kamen Rider.

    ZO/J - 4 out of 5, ZO edges out J for the gold stripes. They're helmet design looks good compared to their body in my opinion.

    Kuuga - 4 out of 5, it still has that showa feel to it and the gold around it looks nice.

    Either Black or Zero One. I also have a soft spot for the The First/The Next films.

    Kuuga's practically perfect. Clean, classy, and has a regal quality in the gold trim and little body inscriptions that really blends well with his simpler design, all whilst paying homage to the original and looking distinct. 10/10.

    I love Kuuga's alt forms. Like his base form they're simple an elegant. I find Dragon a bit plain, but I love Pegasus. Especially the asymmetrical arm details. The green yes and chest armour give him a really cool, ethereal look. 9/10 and 10/10 respectively.

    Kuuga Dragon - 4 out of 5, I rank it the same as mighty form because it doesn't do much difference other than details on the suit.

    Kuuga Pegasus - 4.5 out of 5, I like it more for the dark green and black color mix. The asymmetrical look also makes him unique, fitting for the type of weapon he uses.

    ^ I hate to nitpick but you forgot the regular version of Kuuga Titan form.

    Anyway, I loved the base Rider form as well as its alternate forms. Though I actually didn’t notice the asymmetry elements to the green form’s design when I was watching the show at the time until now. That’s pretty dumb of me.

    Mighty - 10/10
    Dragon - 9/10
    Pegasus - 8/10 (something about the shoulder pad only being on one side ruins it for me)
    Titan - 10/10
