His true name was Damon according to Kamen Rider Spirits.
Hell takes command of Japan's branch after Doctor Shinigami's destruction. Hell captures the rider's friends and calls out Kamen Rider 1 and becomes his Inhumanoid form, Garagaranda, a rattlesnake kaijin able to use his whip arm as a weapon, similar to the whip he uses without his Inhumanoid form. He also has the ability to burrow underground. While Taki Kazuya frees their friends Rider 1 engages Hell in combat. He then manages his Rider Kick on Garagaranda reverting him back to his human form. He curses the Rider and screams to Shocker's perseverance before he explodes and the Great Leader scatters Shocker.

In the final battle Hell is destroyed as Garagaranda by the Double Riders, Rider Double Kick praising Dai-Shocker before exploding similar to the original series.
Let's Go Kamen RidersEdit
Due to a change in history caused by Ankh leaving a O Medal behind in 1971, Shocker achieved its goal of world dominion with the Shocker Greeed which defeated the Double Riders, and new members from the various groups that would have manifested in the normal timeline after Shocker's destruction. Garagaranda was among the many villains who were part of the this alliance. When the riders united against Shocker, he along with Ganikomol and Ikadevil was destroyed by Kamen Rider Den-O Climax Form Boistous Slash and Kamen Rider New Den-O Counter Slash.

Behind the scenesEdit
In Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, Ambassador Hell is portrayed by Ren Osugi (大杉 漣 Ōsugi Ren?) while Garagaranda is voiced by Kenichi Suzumura (鈴村 健一 Suzumura Ken'ichi?). Garagaranda's suit actor is Jiro Okamoto (岡元 次郎 Okamoto Jirō?). Kenichi Suzumura later voiced Garagaranda in OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders.
Relationship with Ambassador DarknessEdit
There is some dispute as to how Ambassador Hell and Ambassador Darkness are related. Birth of the 10th! Kamen Riders All Together!! says that Darkness is Hell's twin brother, while the manga Kamen Rider Spirits, which gives an alternate version of the story of ZX, says they are cousins.
Ironically while Darkness and Hell's natural forms are very similar, down to being played by the same actor, their monster forms are completely different.
- Footage of Garagaranda's defeat by Kamen Rider #1 in episode 79 appeared in the TV special Birth of the 10th! Kamen Riders All Together!! (1984), in a recap of the ten Kamen Riders.
