Kamen Rider V3
Destron was formed under the guidance of the mysterious Great Leader by surviving members of Gel-Shocker. Although Destron had branches in every country and sought to dominate the entire planet, they stationed their main headquarters in Japan, with Japan bring Destron's primary target. Initially the Inhumanoids of the Mechanical Army followed the orders of the unseen High Destron without any direct supervision, but after the repeated failures of the kaijin, the High Destron summoned Doktor G from Destron's German Division to take charge of the day to day operations of Destron's Japanese Division.
Razor Sea Star of Destron was one of several monsters who were revived to serve the Badan Empire led by the Great Leader, now known as the Generalissimo of Badan. Razor Sea Star was one of several monsters destroyed by Badan's own Space-time Fracture System.
Along with the Shocker Combatmen, known as the Dai-Shocker Combatmen, the Destron Combatmen served as henchmen of Dai-Shocker. They were part of the Dai-Shocker army that was wiped out by a gathering of 25 Kamen Riders, Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker as well as the revived Dai-Shocker assembled by Decade to wipe out the Super Sentai, ensuring the survival of the Kamen Riders. After Dai-Shocker's alliance with Dai-Zangyack was revealed, both organizations were wiped out by a gathering of Kamen Riders and Super Sentai.

The Destron Combatmen are the grunt fighting force of the organization, created through cloning. They are similar to the Combatmen of Shocker. They wear black jumpsuits adorned with white markings of the Destron scorpion logo. The weapons they wield vary depending on the executive they serve under, with those serving Doktor G wielding knives while those serving Baron Fang used fang-shaped daggers. They also came in several specialized variants, such as the cultists who wore black robes and accompanied Archbishop Wing or the elite bodyguards clad in military officer uniforms who served as guards to the Destron Leader.
Researchers who serve in the Science Division of Destron, headed by Joji Yuki, and are responsible for all of the surgeries Destron performs on test subjects to convert them into Inhumanoids. They wear uniforms similar to the Combatmen but white with red markings. Unlike the Combatmen they all appear to be normal humans. Despite this, they were all extremely loyal to the head of the science division, to the point where they even risked their lives to save Yuki when he was about to be executed by Marshal Armor on (falsified) charges of treachery against Destron.
Unique to them as an evil organization, within Destron is a sect of cultists versed in mysticism who are responsible for all of the black magic rituals conducted by the organization. They wear black robes with KKK-like pointed hoods.
