Like his mother, Raiga is a kind and caring individual and shares her love of art. (though in one episode, it is humorously shown he does not have Kaoru's artistic ability) While at times he does seem carefree, Raiga has his father's strong sense of justice and determination and carries a serious demeanor when it comes to his duties as a Makai Knight.
The Golden Knight GaroAs a Makai Knight, Raiga is given the title of The Golden Knight. As such, he has the ability to don the Garo Armor. Like all of the wearers of the armor, Raiga dons the armor by pointing his Makai Blade up in the air and drawing a circle above him. Unlike the other Golden Knights, the portal automatically opens as soon as Raiga completes the circle, where the armor descends and equips on him, completing the transformation.
Raiga as Garo has a different fighting style from his father, using the sheath of his sword in conjunction with the blade for offensive and defensive attacks, making him skilled in dual wielding. Like many bearers of the Garo armor before him, the armor's eyes take on a different color to differentiate the wearer, Raiga having light blue eyes.
- Garoken - A Makai Blade that has been passed down to all the bearers of the Garo. Its normal form is a sword with the iconic red scabbard. When transformed, it assumes the form of a large broadsword, capable of cutting down most Horrors with ease.
- Madou Lighter - Raiga also uses a lighter that emits green Madou Flames, as a way to detect Horrors.
- Gouten - Garo's personal Madou Horse. Like his father, Raiga also gained access after defeating 100 Horrors. He was granted this power in his fight with Zaji
During Raiga's battle with Eiryth, she bound him up in her vines and uses her space-time manipulation abilities to drain away the Garo armor's time limit to zero. When this happened, he became a Lost Soul Beast and then was sent by Eiryth to attack Crow and Mayuri. Its appearance is similar to Kouga's Lost Soul Beast form, but with blue eyes instead of green.
While Raiga was being controlled, Eiryth began to bloom. During his friends struggle to stop her, Mayuri lost the bell that Eiji gave her and it fell onto Raiga's armor. The sound combined with the resonating emotions of all those he cared about and Raiga's desire to protect them surging within him. He then gained full control of the Lost Soul Beast and overcame the Heart Destruction aspect of that form. This newfound strength evolved the Garo Armor into a purified fusion of the Makai Armor and the Soul Beast form called the Luminous Beast Form. The armor now has the Soul Beast's bladed tail, claws on the boots, thicker armor on the arms and bladed ornamentation on the back. The Garo Ken transforms into a large Zanbato with the Soul Beast's head on the tip of the blade and uses a blazing charge attack to strike down Eiryth.
- Raiga Saezima is portrayed by Masei Nakayama, who would later voice Raikou in Garo: The Crimson Moon.
