Phantoms (ファントム Fantomu?) are the fictional antagonists that appear in the 2012-2013 Kamen Rider Series Kamen Rider Wizard. Phantoms are born whenever humans with magic potential, known as Gates (ゲート Gēto?), give in to despair. From there, the created Phantom proceeds to tear down the host's Underworld (精神世界<アンダーワールド> Andāwārudo?), the subconscious of the human, before destroying the host itself. Able to assume its host's form, the Phantom proceeds to seek out Gates and place them deep in despair to repeat the cycle. If Kamen Rider Wizard stops the sacrifice, he can use an Engage Wizard Ring to remove the feelings of despair and prevent Phantoms from destroying the host's Underworld with the host made a normal human. Each Phantom has a form based on a monster from various mythologies.
