Gandrayda is a bounty hunter employed by the Galactic Federation during the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. She, along with the three hunters in their spirits later reappeared to Samus in the present time, who currently is assembling all the Kamen Riders.
Go Shijima is Gandrayda's Kamen Rider counterpart of the present time. Both Go and Gandrayda have very flighty personalities, and at the same time give Samus the nickname "Sammy"; Gandrayda is known for her cunning and sadomasochistic tendencies, while Go in the other hand is a hyperactive individual who has a flair of breaking the fourth wall, which is a running gag in the crossover proper.

Metroid: Kamen Rider GenerationsEdit
Gandrayda, along with the spirits of Ghor and Rundas were contained in the meteorite encircling the Guardian Tree in Zawame City during the three-parter chapter, Disembodied Souls. Samus, along with the Kureshima brothers and Go were summoned by Kouta Kazuraba and Mai Takatsukasa to investigate the meteorites. In Gandrayda's meteorite, the Chozo manuscript engraved states that she must bring Kouta inside, to which he agrees. Upon going inside the meteorite, they were ambushed by a Riotrooper, which reveals to be Gandrayda thanks to Kouta being able to foil her attack.
During the fight, Gandrayda proposes that should Samus and the party lost, she would have Mitsuzane Kureshima for herself. The pattern of the party's battle against Gandrayda is identical to that in Prime 3. She transforms into most Kamen Rider series based villains as well as Riders - the Medic Roidmude, Kamen Rider Baron Lemon Energy Arms, Lord Baron, Bujin Gaim, Sagittarius Nova, Kamen Rider Necrom, Faiz Axel Form, Kamen Rider Ryuki, Kamen Rider Ghost, Kamen Rider Kuuga Titan Form, Redyue, Kamen Rider Marika, and Kamen Rider Agito Flame Form.
Once defeated, Gandrayda congratulates Samus's party, especially her human counterpart, Go. A running gag during the encounter also involves her pressing Go's head on the center of her chest twice, much to everyone's chagrin. The second time also causes Mitsuzane to nauseate profusely out of embarrassment.
to be added
- Gandrayda while fighting Mitsuzane as Redyue-G is somewhat ironic. As Redyue herself is one of the beings who serves as the benefactor of Mitsuzane's downfall.
- Go Shijima - her Kamen Rider counterpart.
