Originally from Planet Cricket, located on M- 42 Nebula, T'Krik-Kit was a young member of the intergalactic police force responsible for the space sector where Earth is. Hired by D.E.F.E.N.D.E. (Departamento Estratégico da Força Especial para Neutralização, Defesa e Escape aka: Department of Special Strategic Power Neutralization, Defense and Escape) to be the hero/protector.

To perform this service, T'Krik - kit received a symbiotic bio - armor, a smart organic bike (the Battle Cricket) and a nature-robot (the Giant Warrior Grileon) snd so was born the Cricket Rider, the newest member of mutant heroes faced with insect order Orthoptera (which also belongs to various Kamen Rider).

When not fighting alien invaders and radioactive monsters, Cricket Rider takes the civilian identity of William Takashi, and works as a delivery boy at Pizzeria do Chinezinho. But as always seems to happen, some monster attacks the city just when he is delivering a pizza thus, he can never deliver them in time.
