Hayato is a huge train otaku. He lives to ride and watch Shinkansen, and compares everything to them, even if doesn't make sense to anyone but himself. Despite his obsessive personality, he is also friendly, loyal, and just.
In the movie
Hayato is the driver of the E5 Hayabusa. While Gou Kurumada is fighting against Terra in the cyber network, to thwart his attack, Hayato and the E5 are suddenly sucked inside through a portal. According to Dr. Karigari, who was monitoring the entire thing, Hayato crossed through time and space.
Initially, Hayato believed Gou to be an enemy, which was not helped by the fact that Gou attacked him accidentally. He eventually realized that he was wrong, and assisted Gou by using his Grand Cross attack against Terra, expelling him from the cyber network. Hayato disappears shortly after.
- He is the main character of Shinkalion. He was included in the movie to have some sort of crossover between Drive Head and Shinkalion.
