All Grongi have a three-part naming scheme: The first name indicates rank, the second name is their personal name, and the third name indicates the animal group they belong to: “Ba” for insects and arachnids, “Da” for mammals, “De” for plants, “Gi” for aquatic animals, “Gu” for birds, “Re” for reptiles. The leaders within the Grongi have a “Ze” in front of their third name.

Grongi Tribe: Five-thousand years ago, the Grongi and Linto tribes lived side-by-side in peace. Both tribes worshiped nature, but the Grongi’s worship turned perverse. Their Shaman practiced dark magic that twisted their tribe members into monsters. The Linto used an ancient artifact from the stars, the Stone of Kings, to turn one of its members into a warrior to fight against the Grongi. The warrior’s name was Riki, but in battle, his enemies called him Kuuga. The battle between the Grongi and Kuuga nearly wiped out both tribes. Those who survived died out within years following the conflict. Kuuga defeated many Grongi, but couldn’t stop them all. So, he sealed the remaining Grongi in a tomb beneath the earth. Kuuga willingly placed himself in the tomb as the seal to the Grongi’s prison.
King Stones: Two ancient artifacts that powered the Kamen Riders: Black Sun and Shadow Moon, in 2001. Their origins were a mystery, even to the Gorgom Syndicate. Archeologists discovered a third King Stone (also called the Stone of Kings) in 2002, in a tomb in Cairo, Egypt. The Stone of Kings powered Kamen Rider Kuuga.
Section 31: A covert intelligence agency, shrouded in secrecy. Section 31 dispatched an agent, Kaoru Ichijo, to Cairo, Egypt following the awakening of the Grongi Tribe.
