Characters that I'm familiar with, but I have not seen enough of them to properly rank them.

Kamen Rider Fourze
(2011 - 2012)

Fourze is the only Rider who, despite not watching his season proper, I can safely say that I'm familiar with him.
And by that I mean that it's at that point where whenever he's on the screen, I'm just like "dammit Fourze!" every 30 seconds.

Kamen Rider Build
(2017 - 2018)

This season is currently ongoing and so it would not be fair to rank him yet.
Rated Custom

Kamen Rider Den-O
(2007 - 2008)

I am currently watching Den-O, so I will properly add him when I'm finished.

The Official Ranking

Kamen Rider Drive
(2014 - 2015)

If I had to pick one lead Kamen Rider to shove off a cliff, it would be Drive. He's just so boring and I don't care about him. Whereas every other Rider - whose season I've actually watched - is super endearing to me and I'm invested in them. Which should be the case for the lead in a show and it means they're doing it right. But Drive is the character that I'm least invested in in his own show. (That's not to say that I'm always most invested in the lead, but I'm at least invested in them.)
Rated Custom

Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
(2016 - 2017)

Emu is one of those instances where, while I love him and his season, I don't really have a super personal attachment to him because my love is spread throughout the entire cast equally. And therefore, in the grand scheme of things, he ranks sort of low among lead protagonists.
So don't mistake his low ranking for a lack of love because that is very much not the case.
Rated Custom

Kamen Rider Ghost
(2015 - 2016)

Ghost is the only Heisei Era season where my favorite character is the lead character. This may not be the most popular opinion, but it's how I feel.
It may be because, like Akari, my childhood best friend was also taken far too young and so I'm projecting my relationship with my cousin onto Akari's relationship with Takeru. However, it could also be that I just really like the character for some reason and I'm just making things up to justify this fact.
Rated Custom

Kamen Rider Gaim
(2013 - 2014)

Gaim is similar to Ex-Aid in that my love for the season is greater than my love for the cast. However, while I distribute that love equally to the Ex-Aid characters, I do have preferences within Gaim.
Now Kouta is not my favorite Gaim cast member, but he is the character that I was most invested in and enjoyed following throughout the season's run. And that's really all I ask for out of a lead character.

Kamen Rider Wizard
(2012 - 2013)

Wizard is probably my most relatable Kamen Rider lead. Not so much in the writing, but more in how the actor perceives himself while in character. I find myself re-watching clips and noticing Shunya Shiraishi making certain acting choices that sometimes seem like a reflection of myself.

Kamen Rider OOO
(2010 - 2011)

One would ask why the underwear man is so high, but after actually watching the season, OOO is actually a good character and his underwear obsession is not really a thing - except for that one time Toshiki Inoue decided to write the W crossover and messed everything up.
And also another good example of, while they may not be my favorite within their season, they are the one that I'm most invested in, making them a good choice for lead protagonist.
Rated Custom

Kamen Rider Amazon
(1974 - 1975)

Amazon is a precious human being and if I find anyone talking bad about him, I'll mess you up. No one messes with my tomodachi.
Rated Custom

A ranking of every primary protagonist in Kamen Rider - that I am familiar with - sorted by least to most favorite.

If you're looking for a ranking of the shows themselves, you want this list instead.
