Red Hakaider is a member of Hakaider Squad and major antagonist in the manga and Tokusatsu series Kikaider 01, as well as a minor antagonist in its OVA adaptation. He has the power to assume the Ghostbot form Red Centipede.
He was voiced by Teiji Omiya, who also voiced numerous monsters of the week in Super Sentai.
Red Hakaider is first seen assembling with the other members of the Hakaider Squad and being instructed by Boss Hakaider to go out and kidnap Akira, the son of Professor Gill whom has the blueprints for the Giant Devil superweapon tattooed on his back. The four then attempt to capture Akira, but face a new obstacle in the form of Ichiro/Kikaider 01, the first Kikaider model built by Dr. Komyoji who reawakens to protect Akira.
After 01 saved Akira and brought him to a hospital, Red Hakaider pursued them there and began shooting at Ichiro from a distance with his crossbow in order to get him out of the way so he could kidnap Akira. However, with help from Rieko, a mysterious woman accompanying Akira, Ichiro was able to get Akira to safety and away from Red Hakaider.
After assuming his monster form of Red Centipede, Red Hakaider launched a plan where he disguised himself as a carnival magician and lured out unsuspecting children to be kidnapped and used for experiments by DARK. However, by using Akira as bait, Jiro and Ichiro were able to locate the Hakaider Base where the children were being kept and free them.
As a last ditch effort to capture Akira, the four Hakaiders combined to form the almighty Gattaider. They succeeded in overwhelming Ichiro, but before they could take Akira Jiro appeared and rescued him. Gattaider relentlessly pursued Akira, but was eventually destroyed by the combined powers of both Kikaiders. Around this time, another figure appeared seeking to capture Akira and complete Giant Devil - Shadow Knight of the mysterious organization SHADOW. Red Hakaider, along with Blue and Silver Hakaider, would ultimately sacrifice themselves to buy Boss Hakaider time to escape.
