Strider Wiki

The Fallen Striders (敗れしストライダー達) are a group of minor characters in Strider (2014) who serve as backstory for the 11 alternate colored costumes the player can find and unlock during the course of the game. Finding them all also unlocks a Customization mode which lets the player change the colors of Hiryu's outfit.

Before Hiryu was given the mission to eliminate Grandmaster Meio, 11 other Striders were sent to Kazakh City to fulfill the same mission. Each one of them excelled in different skills and wielded special weapons, but none of them survived their assignment, finding their demise inside the metropolis at the hands of the Grandmaster's subordinates.
