Sho is the protagonist of the Guyver manga and anime series. He is a normal teenager who becomes the superhero The Guyver when he stumbles across an alien artifact.
Sho Fukamachi is an average male student until one day he his friend Tetsuo (who is missing in Guyver: Out of Control) stumble upon an inactive Guyver Unit. The unit was stolen from Chronus Japan and found its way into Sho's hands. Accidentally activating the unit, it bonds with Sho giving him powers beyond the Zoanoids currently employed by Chronus. The three animes vary in length and events but in all of them Sho battles Guyver II (in the OAV movie its a female Guyver II) and this is how he learns that if the control medal is destroyed that the armor overloads and kills the host.
Once Chronos learns his real identity he and Testuo come under constant attacks as they attempt to retrieve the armor. In both the OAV series and TV Series, Sho is eventually "killed" by Chronus by a Anti-Guyver unit (Enzyme I) only to be reborn from the Guyver's control medal as it was never destroyed and retains his DNA. He then (with the assistance of Guyver III) destroys Chronos Japan only to later learn that Chronos is a world wide organization.
The other identical story fact is that upon learning that Sho is the Guyver his father is abducted by Chronos and turned into the Hyper Zoanoid unit Enzyme II. In both version Enzyme II crushes Sho's brain forcing the armor into defense mode and it kills Sho's father. Sho upon regenerating his brain, sees the remains of his father and the trauma causes him to block access to the armor. Only upon Aptom assaulting Mizuki does Sho regain the power to become the Guyver again.
Eventually Sho finds one of the Creators ships and bonds with it. The Zoalords destory the ship rather than let the Guyvers gain control of it and Sho's control medal (as well as the ships) bond and force the creation of the Gigantic Guyver. Sho uses his new abilities to destory Zx-tole and is now a match for the Zoalords themselves.
As the Guyver Sho has the following abilities:
NOTE: When upgraded to a Gigantic Guyver the above powers are multiplied exponentially.
