Raid of the Demon Sabotegron (魔人サボテグロンの襲来 Majin Saboteguron no Shūrai?), is the fourteenth episode of the original Kamen Rider series.

It introduces Hayato Ichimonji, who will star for the remainder of the series first year as Kamen Rider #2. Having used a combination of reused footage and a voice actor for the previous five episodes to fill in for Hiroshi Fujioka's absence following the motorcycle stunt accident which forced him to leave the show, Takeshi Sasaki was brought in to replace him in the lead. The explaination in the show being that Hongo left to fight Shocker in Europe with Ruriko, leaving the protection of Japan to Ichimonji, the second Kamen Rider cyborg created by Shocker who was rescued by Hongo off-screen.

As well as a new lead, several new allies were introduced along with a change of base as Tobei Tachibana moved from Snack Amigo to form the Tachibana Racing Club, which is joined by Mari, Yuri, Michi, and Yuri's younger brother Goro. This episode is also notable for introducing the iconic look of the Shocker Combatmen brought by the titular Shocker kaijin from Mexico, instead of wearing berets and facepaint, the Combatmen now wear masks similar to lucha libre fighters with an insignia on their forehead.
