Medals, Underwear, and a Mysterious Arm[edit]

1 "Medals, Underwear, and a Mysterious Arm"
"Medaru to Pantsu to Nazo no Ude" (メダルとパンツと謎の腕) 
Yasuko Kobayashi September 5, 2010

Eiji Hino is working as a part-time security guard in the Kougami Art Museum, but he is unknowingly drugged by two thieves posing as fellow security guards who put sleeping pills in his juice. While in the middle of robbing the artifact chamber blind, a mass of coins form into an arm that breaks a seal on a mysterious sarcophagus releasing four monsters. The Kougami Foundation, owners of the museum, send their Ride Vendor 1st Squad motorcycle brigade to bomb the museum, intending to trap the monsters known as Greeed inside. However, the Greeed escape, and overpower the squad, while the Kougami Foundation's leader Kousei Kougami decorates a birthday cake, welcoming the Greeed into this world.

Later in the day, a strange red coin hits Eiji in the head, waking him up. Thinking that it is his pay for the day, he takes the coin and changes out of his work clothes down to his underwear, only for the wall behind him to collapse and have several emergency workers behind it. After being questioned by the young police detective Shingo Izumi, Eiji goes on with his life, unaware that he is being followed by a disembodied arm. Upon passing a strange-looking vending machine, Eiji decides to get something to drink, and prepares to use the red coin to buy something, but he drops it and it rolls under the machine. While struggling to get the coin himself, a young woman helps Eiji retrieve the coin by lifting the vending machine off of the ground with little effort. However, the disembodied arm appears, scaring off the girl after she gives the coin back to Eiji, while the arm demands it back and chases him. Elsewhere, the Greeed known as Uva approaches a woman in a jewelry store and uses her to make the Mantis Yummy, instructing the monster to find Ankh to retrieve his master's stolen Core Medals from him. The Mantis Yummy eventually finds Ankh, the disembodied arm, with the resulting fight taking detective Izumi as a casualty. Taking Shingo's gun, Eiji uses it to fight the Yummy, who turns his attention to the human for meddling. Ankh, impressed by Eiji's conviction to save him, decides to return the favor, seeing Eiji as a useful asset. Ankh then produces the seal that kept the Greeed in their 800-year slumber, and places it onto Eiji's midsection, transforming it into the OOO Driver belt. Ankh tells Eiji that if he uses the Medal he found, along with two others that Ankh has, a yellow one and a green one, it will allow Eiji to transform and fight the Yummy. Eiji uses the Medals and the belt to transform into what Ankh calls "OOO". The Mantis Yummy attacks him, again, but Eiji as Kamen Rider OOO (Tatoba Combo) is able to counter, using the Tora Claw gauntlets on his arms and his powerful jump kicks before Ankh gives Kamen Rider OOO the Mantis Medal to switch with the Tora Medal to become Takakiriba. Using the Mantis Swords, Kamen Rider OOO destroys the Mantis Yummy. Eiji's victory is interrupted when he hears a cell phone ringing, realizing that it is Shingo's. On the other line is the girl Eiji met, Hina Izumi, checking on her brother. Eiji wonders what he should do when Ankh attaches himself to the detective's lifeless body, converting it into a puppet body to act through. Nearby, Shintaro Goto of the Ride Vendor 1st Squad opens up a strange can which transforms into a tiny hawk-like robot as it and several others converge on the two, while elsewhere Kousei Kougami has decorated another birthday cake, one for Kamen Rider OOO.[1] 

Desire, Ice Pops, and Presents[edit]

2 "Desire, Ice Pops, and Presents"
"Yokubō to Aisu to Purezento" (欲望とアイスとプレゼント) 
Yasuko Kobayashi September 12, 2010
After witnessing Ankh attach himself to the body of the dying detective Shingo Izumi, Eiji demands to know what has happened as the legion of bird-like robots known as Taka Candroids are activated by Shintaro. Each one gathers the Medals that are the remains of the Mantis Yummy to Ankh's dismay, bringing them to Kougami to add to his collection. Eiji follows Ankh as the Greeed takes several popsicles from a vendor, cloaking his arm from view while forcing Eiji to pay for the bill. As Ankh enjoys the ice pops, he reveals how he is keeping Shingo alive as he explains that as a Greeed, he requires Cell Medals to rebuild his body, while the Core Medals give his kind life and power. Eiji then receives a text message on Shingo's phone, and he discovers that the sender, Shingo's little sister Hina, is the young woman he met earlier. She has texted Shingo to tell him that she is getting a job at the Cous Coussier restaurant, passing the owner Chiyoko Shiraishi's test before dressing her like a pirate. Elsewhere, Uva finds the two thieves who attempted to steal from the art museum earlier. He inserts a Cell Medal into one of them to create a White Yummy that hungers for wealth. Ankh senses the new Yummy's creation, and takes Eiji to the bank where the monster goes on a feeding frenzy. However, Ankh refuses to give Eiji the OOO Driver until the Yummy has completed its transformation, making it able for them to collect more Cell Medals from, revealing both types of Medals are powered by humanity's greed. Once full, the White Yummy molts into the Leaf-Rolling Weevil Yummy, growing much larger as it begins to scale and nearly destroy a skyscraper before getting onto another to consume. Eiji decides to fight the Yummy without Ankh's help, but is no match. When he nearly gets himself killed, Ankh saves him after being forced to promise Eiji that he would not put his need for Medals over the safety of human lives. After transforming, Kamen Rider OOO is confronted by Shintaro Goto who comes bearing gifts to celebrate Kamen Rider OOO's birthday: several Cell Medals, the Medajaribur sword, and his own Ride Vendor motorcycle. With support from the Tako Candroids, Kamen Rider OOO battles the Leaf-Rolling Weevil Yummy as Takakiriba before switching back to Tatoba Combo and using the Medajaribur's Triple Scanning Charge to perform the OOO Bash, destroying the Yummy with Ankh to feeding on the Cell Medals left behind. Later, Eiji responds to Hina's text message through Shingo's phone that Shingo is on a "undercover mission" to buy him some time to find a way to save the detective. However, Hina, finds the two of them and hugs Ankh, thinking that he is still her brother. However, Ankh prepares to kill Hina as Eiji tries to stop him from hurting her.[2] 

A Cat, Evolution, and a Glutton[edit]

3 "A Cat, Evolution, and a Glutton"
"Neko to Shinka to Kuishinbō" (ネコと進化と食いしん坊) 
Yasuko Kobayashi September 19, 2010
After going through Shingo's memories to find out who she is, Ankh attempts to strangle Hina. However, Hina realizes that the presence of the arm and she rips it off, much to his shock, before fainting in fright of the arm. Ankh still wants to kill her so she cannot meddle in their affairs, but Eiji threatens to dispose of the OOO Driver in the river should Ankh do so. He changes his mind, and Eiji takes her to the Cous Coussier restaurant (currently decorated as an Indian restaurant) meeting with Chiyoko who offers him food for his trouble. But he turns it down as he leaves, with Chiyoko picking up a photograph that has a man in the background of a foreign country that looks a lot like Eiji. Elsewhere, after helping his fellow Greeed take out the police and seeing humans have changed into more of a hindrance, Kazari finds the heavy eater Monta Fukuji and inserts a Cell Medal into him; the White Yummy that is created taking over his body and turning him into a ravenous glutton. Ankh senses the Yummy's creation and takes Eiji to find it, only to discover that the Yummy is a parasitic type. Eiji decides to fight it anyway as Kamen Rider OOO, but only attempts to force the Yummy out of its human host, not wanting to kill Monta. Ankh, however, has no qualms in killing the host, but is only stopped when Kamen Rider OOO gets in the way, reminding Ankh of his promise as Monta escapes. Shintaro arrives with a Ride Vendor, telling Kamen Rider OOO to use it to find the Yummy. He wastes a Cell Medal, much to Ankh's dislike, in turning into the Machine Bike Mode until Goto tells him to use a Taka Candroid. Ankh confronts Goto, asking him why humans could use Medals, only for Goto to respond that humanity has evolved since he was put away. Eiji stops the two from killing each other as Shintaro takes his leave. Ankh decides that if he is to learn more about humanity and the where about of the Core Medals, he must use the resources at his disposal, namely Shingo Izumi's home. As he begins to learn more about humanity, learning that Shingo was a technophile and marveling at his recently bought iPhone 4 as Eiji finds a small memorial shrine to the parents of Shingo and Hina. By then, the Taka Candroid appears and takes Eiji to the Cous Coussier, where the parasitized Monta forces himself the kitchen as Hina and Chiyoko fear for their lives. Using a Tako Candroid, Eiji manages to get the distracted Monta out before grabbing him as the Taka Candroid holds a steak out to lure the White Yummy out of him. However, Ankh stops the procedure and reveals that it does not matter if Eiji saves Monta, stating that he is getting what he deserve and will die from his own gluttony either way. Eiji tries to stop Monta from eating before Ankh pulls him away, asserting his authority over Eiji in case he attempts to make a threat of destroying the OOO Driver again. Once the White Yummy emerges from Monta and becomes the Cat Yummy, Ankh relents and gives Eiji the Core Medals to become Kamen Rider OOO. Though Medajaribur and the Tora Claws are unable to do any damage to the fat Yummy, the Batta Legs prove to be effective as Kamen Rider OOO begins delivering several powerful kicks to push the Yummy back before executing the Tatoba Kick. However, several support columns are thrown in the way to prevent the Cat Yummy from being destroyed as Ankh calls out the one responsible: Kazari.[3] 

Doubt, a Picture Message, and a Helping Hand[edit]

4 "Doubt, a Picture Message, and a Helping Hand"
"Utagai to Shame to Sukui no Te" (疑いと写メと救いの手) 
Yasuko Kobayashi September 26, 2010
Being saved by his creator, the Cat Yummy parasitizes Monta once more with Kazari stopping Kamen Rider OOO from pursuing with a warning hit. Revealing that he expected Ankh's condition, Kazari offers Ankh a mutual partnership between the two of them. Though Ankh agrees with the reasons, he asks Kazari to leave to give him time to fully consider the proposition. Ankh explains to Eiji the nature of the other Greeed before leaving to think on Kazari's offer, still vexed by Eiji still wanting to save Monta. Eiji is left by himself, when he receives a call on Shingo's phone, only for Hina to appear behind him asking him how he has her brother's phone. Before he can answer, Eiji collapses due to the strain from the fight with Kazari. Hina brings him to the Cous Coussier, with Chiyoko ruminating on how Eiji had brought Hina in, and now Hina has brought Eiji in. Eiji reveals to Hina the truth about Shingo and Ankh. He makes a promise to Hina that he will find a way to save Shingo, because he feels that if he does not help people when given the chance, he will regret his decision forever. Ankh continues to use the iPhone, amazed at how much information it provides him, as Shintaro tracks him, forcing Kougami to change his tactics. As Monta is being force fed due to the Yummy's growing control, he attracts a crowd of bystanders who upload photos of him to the Internet, which Ankh soon finds, notifying him of the Yummy's completion. Eiji leaves the Cous Coussier, but not before Chiyoko tells him of Monta's presence at a nearby restaurant. Hina tries to stop Eiji from going while he is still hurt, but Eiji merely states he will be alright. Eiji arrives at the restaurant just as Ankh does, asking if he will continue to do as he says. Eiji replies that he will not be merely a tool for Ankh as Kazari arrives, elated that Ankh will side with him instead of Eiji. As Kazari prepares to kill Eiji, Ankh pushes Kazari out of the way, stating that he would rather work with humans because he can trust them, as he has seen photos of Kazari following him on the Internet. Kazari is angered and attacks, but Ankh gives Eiji the Core Medals so he can transform into Kamen Rider OOO. During the fight, Kamen Rider OOO is beat as Takakiriba, and loses the Mantis Medal while being able to take three of Kazari's, leaving the Greeed weakened as his chest armor dissolves. As Kazari falls back, the Cat Yummy consumes Monta's body. Eiji transforms into Kamen Rider OOO, but finds it even more difficult to attack the Cat Yummy, without harming Monta inside. With another slash, he sees Monta inside the Yummy, and he realizes that if he just cuts through the Cell Medals, he can pull Monta out. Ankh throws Eiji one of the new Medals (the Cheetah Medal) he got from Kazari, and Kamen Rider OOO transforms into Takatorartar. Using the Cheetah Medal's super speed, Kamen Rider OOO is able to deliver a barrage of kicks on the Cat Yummy, opening the monster's belly enough for him to pull Monta out before he uses the Medajaribur's Triple Scanning Charge to destroy the Cat Yummy. After the fight, Ankh and Eiji watch Monta being sent to a hospital, with Eiji remarking on the man's change of heart after going through the possession. However, he is soon taken aback by Monta's request to go to the hospital cafeteria, with Ankh remarking on how humans cannot control themselves. As they leave, they are approached by Kougami's aide, Erika Satonaka. She the brings out a tablet computer which shows Kousei Kougami, who tells the two men that they are to all celebrate the birth of their meeting.[4]

Yasuko Kobayashi October 3, 2010
Via the monitor Erika holds before Eiji and Ankh, Kougami proceeds to negotiate with the latter in forming a partnership where they all share the Medals, with Kougami receiving 70%, while Erika gives Eiji a box of Candroids as a sign of good will. However, Ankh is unable to accept the terms as he is given time to think it over. Meanwhile, as the Greeed now assume human forms on response to Kazari realizing humanity has changed, Mezool approaches a rich girl named Haruka Yamano and uses her to create a mass of roe which soon begins to multiply based on Haruka's desire for shopping. The next day, while going to her fashion college, Hina meets up with Haruka who gives her a scarf that she drops due to bumping into her. Elsewhere, Ankh tries to research the Kougami Foundation to track Kougami down to teach him a lesson, but he is interrupted when he senses a strange presence. He takes Eiji to the location as he has him transform into Kamen Rider OOO before Mezool appears. Though evenly matched with Kamen Rider OOO, Mezool falls back. Though he detects her Yummy's faint presence, Ankh leaves Eiji so he can resume his search for Kougami. Eiji goes off on his own when he realizes that Ankh was looking at a particular building. However, he finds Hina there, who says that her friend Haruka lives in the building, even though Eiji warns her that a monster may be inside. When Mezool meets up with her fellow Greeed, she mentions how she has come across Ankh and Eiji. Uva decides to hunt them down and finds Eiji on his own as he finds Hina at Haruka's place. Uva attacks Eiji, who is unable to transform into Kamen Rider OOO to defend himself. He activates a Taka Candroid to carry one of the new Batta Candroids to alert Ankh to the attack. As Eiji attempts to escape from Uva on a Ride Vendor, the Batta Candroid makes it to Ankh as he gets on a Ride Vendor himself. Elsewhere, Hina finds Haruka who tries to brush her off until Haruka gets a call from her father who is on business in America, alerting her that they are now bankrupt. When Ankh finds Eiji and Uva, he gives Eiji the Core Medals so he transforms into Kamen Rider OOO. During the fight, Uva attempts to retrieve his Batta Medal and has the upper hand in the match. Realizing that Kamen Rider OOO could be defeated, Ankh brings up the fact that Kazari has taken the Mantis Medal that he originally stole. Uva becomes enraged and confused about learning this as Kamen Rider OOO transforms into Takatorartar, giving him the upper hand in the fight. Uva bleeds out several Cell Medals and Ankh catches some of his Core Medals that are also ejected, realizing that he now has a set of three Core Medals: the Grasshopper Medal, the Mantis Medal, and the Stag Beetle Medal.[5]

"Oyōfuku to Keiyaku to Saikyō Konbo" (お洋服と契約と最強コンボ) 
Yasuko Kobayashi October 10, 2010
Losing three of his Core Medals to Ankh, Uva is forced to run away as he vows to get his Core Medals back by stealing from the other Greeed as well. Eiji asks what Ankh is up to as the Greeed reveals his kind possess three types of Core Medals in their bodies and that if Kamen Rider OOO uses all three of Uva's Medals in his belt, he can assume a Medal Combo where he possesses all of Uva's power. Ankh takes his leave, after giving Eiji the three Medals to become Tatoba Combo so he can fend for himself, to resume hunting down Kousei Kougami and make the man an offer he can not refuse. At the Greeed's hideout, Uva confronts Kazari about having his Core Medal, but Kazari manages to lie his way out of trouble as Mezool calms Uva down by reminding him that they will get more Cell Medals soon. Elsewhere, Haruka's despair over her father's company going bankrupt causes the clutch of eggs to stir. Eiji arrives at her building with Shintaro waiting for him, giving Eiji the exact location of Yummy activity before taking his leave while reminding Eiji that he needs the Foundation's help. Eiji finds Hina as she tries to convince Haruka not to go shopping. Refusing to listen to either of them, Haruka goes back up to her apartment to shop online. Telling him of Haruka's trouble, Eiji admits to Hina that he never met a person in his worldly travel who did not want something and that it is how one focuses on it that matters. By then, Haruka's greed causes the clutch of eggs to hatch into a swarm of Piranha Yummy which burst out of the windows. Upon seeing them, Eiji transforms into Kamen Rider OOO to get Haruka to safety and getting her under Hina's care as she tells her not to buy clothes as a crutch. Elsewhere, Ankh eventually finds Kousei Kougami who explains that his life is tied to the Medal System as he shows Kamen Rider OOO having trouble with a Ride Vendor as Kougami claims he has made it so it cannot transform. Forced into accepting Kougami's demands, Ankh agrees to provide 60% of all Medals they get from a Yummy to him, just as Kougami reveals that he had been planning on that number all along. After the Ride Vendor transforms, Shintaro Goto is seen with a remote control device that switches the Ride Vendor's modes remotely. Arriving as Kamen Rider OOO fails to hold off the legion of Piranha Yummy, Ankh gives him the Kuwagata and Mantis Medals to use with the Batta Medal to become Kamen Rider OOO Gatakiriba Combo. Using his new combination's powers of duplication, Kamen Rider OOO manages to take out most of the Piranha Yummy before the rest gather into a giant Piranha Yummy-shaped swarm which Kamen Rider OOO finishes off with the Gatakiriba Kick. Commenting on how it is difficult it is to reintegrate himself into a single Kamen Rider, Eiji collapses from the strain of using Uva's power in the fight. Later, Eiji and Ankh watch Hina and her friends visiting Haruka at her new job at a bakery, having got her vices under control.[6]

Yasuko Kobayashi October 17, 2010
At their hideout, Kazari tells Mezool his intent to use Gamel in a plan to regain their Core Medals from Ankh upon giving Uva a cellphone to enact his own plan to destroy Ankh. Elsewhere, witnessing a man being hounded down by a woman throwing her shoes at him, Gamel is inspired to create the Bison Yummy to hit people with things for his own amusement. At the Cous Coussier, after taking a break to study for a test, Hina finds the restaurant in an old Edo theme along with Eiji working part-time in her absence. Though Chiyoko offers Eiji to work for her full-time due to having a similar traveling lifestyle, he politely declines as the woman storms in. Identified by Chiyoko as Momoko Komori, she is looking for her husband Takeshi before she storms out of the restaurant. Eiji realizes that she is not wearing any shoes, so Chiyoko sends Eiji to go after her to give her a pair of sandals. By the time Eiji finds Momoko, she is beating up Takeshi when she discovers that he spent all of their money on several scratchcards. Eiji tries to break up the fight and have them solve the problem without violence before the Bison Yummy arrives just as Takeshi wins the million yen jackpot on his last scratchcard. Eiji transforms into Kamen Rider OOO to fight the Yummy before Gamel intervenes when Kamen Rider OOO starts to get the upper hand. Shintaro reluctantly arrives with a cake from Kougami, revealed to have the Lion Core Medal in it, as Kougami has decided that he wants to investigate the powers of the Medal Combos in more detail. Using the Medal, Kamen Rider OOO transforms from Tatoba Combo to Latoraba, and uses the Lion Head's ability to blind Gamel and the Bison Yummy long enough so he can retrieve the Medajaribur. However, the Bison Yummy throws several cars at Kamen Rider OOO to cover the monsters' escape, just as Momoko and Takeshi resume their fight to Eiji's shock. While this all occurred, after reviewing the number of Core Medals he and the other Greeed have currently, Ankh receives intel on a green Medal, believing it to be one of the missing 9 Core Medals not accounted for. Arriving to the location of the one who sent the message, Ankh learns too late that the messenger was Uva. Ankh realizes he has been set up by Kazari, infuriating Uva as he rips Ankh off Shingo's body and strikes him, releasing the Cheetah and Kuwagata Medals.[7]

After Gamel and the Bison Yummy fall back, Eiji attempts to keep Takeshi and Momoko from killing each other as the latter snatches the winning scratchcard and throws it into the river to the former's shock. As he searches for the scratchcard, Momoko reveals to Eiji that Takeshi was once a photographer before becoming his current money-driven self after being used to the sweet life. Eiji remains at Takeshi's side and helps him regain his love for photography. Elsewhere, a weakened Ankh finds himself unable to heal after intentionally discarding the Kuwagata and Cheetah Medals to escape Uva and is forced to wait on Shingo's body, refusing to call Eiji out of pride. Later, Mezool stops a fight between Uva and Kazari at their base, convincing the two to trade for the other's Core Medal. Later that night, as Eiji arrives to meet Kougami for a favor, Gamel whines about Kamen Rider OOO blinding him as the Bison Yummy takes his master's injuries personally with a plan to punish Kamen Rider OOO. The next day, as Takeshi and Momoko reconcile, the Bison Yummy attacks a construction site to get Kamen Rider OOO's attention. Sensing the Yummy, Ankh attempts to crawl to the monster's location when Eiji appears with Cell Medals he has been loaned from Kougami and uses them to heal Ankh, who is reluctant to accept them at first. The two later arrive at the construction site, with Kamen Rider OOO fighting the Bison Yummy before assuming Takakiriba. Much to Ankh's shock, Kamen Rider OOO uses the Lion Medal to become Lakiriba to blind the Bison Yummy while destroying him, with only a single Cell Medal remaining. After seeing Momoko and Takeshi having made up, with the latter resuming his photography career, Eiji takes his leave as Chiyoko attempts to ask him again to work for her. However, Hina follows Eiji to Ankh's location, confirming that he is the reason Eiji is not accepting Chiyoko's offer. She forcefully grabs the Greeed as she convinces Eiji to reconsider the full-time job and housing at the Cous Coussier so she can keep an eye on her brother's body.[8]

But the party comes to an abrupt end when an explosion is heard and Eiji runs out to investigate. With Hina following him, Eiji finds a destroyed car before telling the others to run as he hears another bomb that explodes with a splash. Eiji then sees a strange man with a puppet on his shoulder and a Cell Medal before following the Taka Candroids to the location of the Shark Yummy. Eiji becomes Kamen Rider OOO to fight the Yummy, realizing that it is connected to the explosion, before the monster escapes. Learning that the Shark Yummy to be one of many Yummy created by Mezool from Ankh, Eiji is troubled when he hears that the Shark Yummy and its siblings are feeding on someone's desire to destroy things. Meanwhile, while the other Greeed feast on the Shark Yummy, Kazari admits that he is upset that Kamen Rider OOO has his Lion Medal and that someone else is meddling in their affairs. The next day, Eiji learns of another bomb attack and admits to Hina that he is taking the chain of events personally, revealing how he got caught up in civil war and was powerless to save a girl who was killed in an explosion. Though tempted to follow the mysterious man from earlier when he sees him, Eiji is forced to go after a new Shark Yummy as he becomes Kamen Rider OOO to fight it. Even after becoming Takatorartar, Kamen Rider OOO is unable to catch the Shark Yummy as Mezool and Gamel arrive to intercept. With no other choice, Kamen Rider OOO uses the Lion Medal to become Kamen Rider OOO Latorartar Combo whose light consumes Mezool. As Ankh manages to steal four of Mezool's Core Medals before Gamel is forced to get her away from harm, Kamen Rider OOO destroys the Shark Yummy with the Liodias Scanning Charge. Soon after, as Ankh takes the Core Medals from him, a weakened Eiji sees the man with the puppet, identified by Ankh to be an observer. The man reveals that he knows who the bomber really is and has been keeping an eye on him so he can see Kamen Rider OOO's power first hand before taking his leave.

At the Kougami Biotech Laboratories, expressing his dismay that Kougami is celebrating the lab's 10th year, Maki learns that his superior sees Kamen Rider OOO to be well suited in his plans to utilize the Medals' power for an unlimited energy source. After presenting a newly made Candroid before Satonaka leaves, Maki enters his lab where he resumes his observation of his lab technician Tadano. After Ankh scolds him for being reckless in using a Combo, Eiji sees the Taka Candroid he sent to follow Maki has returned with the man's whereabouts. Eiji leaves to Hina's dismay as Ankh scoffs at Eiji's intent, but he still follows Eiji in hopes of getting more Medals. Eiji arrives at the Kougami Biotech Laboratories just as Tadano takes his leave, with Ankh arriving in time to identify the man as the Yummy's host. Just then, a Shark Yummy appears as Eiji becomes Kamen Rider OOO Takatorartar to destroy it. Seeing Kamen Rider OOO, Maki activates the lock down sequence to trap everyone in the laboratory's warehouse as he meets with Kamen Rider OOO to ask him not to interfere in his observation of the Yummy nest. Though Kamen Rider OOO points out the resulting deaths in letting the Yummy nest mature, Maki is more concerned with the ends than the means as he reveals that Tadano has made more bombs. Eiji runs off as Shintaro is forced to deal with the hatching swarm of Shark Yummy. With the Taka Candroid guiding him, Eiji takes Tadano's journal to discover the locations of the bombs and their time of detonation. As Tadano is arrested, Eiji manages to get everyone out of harm's way and defuses all the bombs in time. Returning to the Laboratories, Eiji learns from Ankh that the Shark Yummy have escaped as Maki gives him the Tora Candroid for Kamen Rider OOO to test. Though grateful despite nearly punching the scientist to his shock, Eiji warns Maki to stay away from him as he becomes Kamen Rider OOO and uses the Tora Candroid to combine with the Ride Vendor and create the feral Toride Vendor. Having trouble controlling the mecha, Kamen Rider OOO assumes Latorartar Combo to gain control with the Toride Vendor which absorbs the Combo's excess power. Using the Toride Vendor, Kamen Rider OOO manages to destroy the remaining Shark Yummy. Later, as Maki wonders if using Kamen Rider OOO will provide the world with a satisfying conclusion, Eiji and Hina watch Ankh being pestered by Chiyoko who tries to teach him etiquette.[10]

After Ankh contacts him, Eiji finds the Swallowtail Yummy and becomes Kamen Rider OOO to fight him before it escapes just as Shintaro arrives to express his annoyance with him. Reporting to Kougami of Kamen Rider OOO's failure to eliminate the Yummy, Shintaro is upset when Kougami gives him a newly developed Candroid to give to Eiji. On his way out, Shintaro meets Maki who suggests that he prove that he is more suited to protect the world than Kamen Rider OOO. Later, in response to Tsukuba's desire to outdo the Meguro Masaji comedy duo, the Swallowtail Yummy attacks them and sucks one of the comedians of his talent.

Afraid that Ankh will absorb the Medal and abandon Shingo's dying body, Eiji returns the Core Medal to Kougami before heading back to the restaurant. Meanwhile, Kazari has finished creating a new Yummy in fugitive Toichi Yamagane, turning him into a revenge-driven berserker as part of plan to regain his Core Medals. Kazari is then dropped off and given a cellphone by Maki, since the scientist's lab is no longer safe for them to meet due to Date taking up residence there. By then, Eiji arrives at the dutch-themed Cous Coussier only to run into a strange man named Yasuji "Yasu" Okumura who is looking for Shingo. However, after he leaves, Yasu is confronted by Yamagane, who intends to make him pay for putting him in jail. Eiji arrives and becomes Kamen Rider OOO to hold off the possessed human. Yamagane manages to escape, after he declares to take revenge on Yasu and Ankh. After Eiji negates the transformation, Yasu recognizes Ankh as Shingo.

Meanwhile, managing to save himself but finding everyone gone, Date arrives at the Cous Coussier where he finds Shintaro before showing interest in the photographs around the room prior to seeing Eiji. Date then takes Shintaro out after closing time and has him try out the Birth Buster, causing him to fall back from the recoil to show him that he needs to train to use the Birth system. By morning, the Lion-Jellyfish Yummy consumes Yamagane and Kazari sends him after Eiji and destroy everything else to his content.

However, due to his strained leg, and with only two spare Core Medals left that would not fix the problem, OOO is at a disadvantage as Kamen Rider Birth arrives to take over the fight with his Shovel Arm knocking Yamagane out of the Yummy. However, the Lion-Jellyfish Yummy overpowers the Kamen Riders with his jellyfish as Kougami instructs Satonaka to take the Condor Medal and the Kujaku Candroid to the battle, along with various guns.

As the transformation ends, Eiji collapses from the strain and Ankh takes back his Core Medals.

Coming to after a nightmare of Eiji taking his Core Medals and being absorbed by his other self, a frightened Ankh takes his paranoia-driven fears on Eiji. By then, Gonzo Shimoda, the new chairman of the neighborhood association arrives to tell Eiji that he has installed several security cameras throughout the neighborhood in response to Ankh sneaking in and out through windows. Furthermore, Shimoda advises Eiji for him and Ankh to leave for the sake of the neighborhood. As Eiji tries to talk Ankh into celebrating Shingo's birthday for Hina's sake, Chiyoko attempts to settle the matter is thwarted by Shimoda's wife Tomoko as he watches the monitor and picks at every minor imperfection in his sight. By then, a White Yummy appears and attacks those Shimoda considers a disgrace to the neighborhood. Kamen Rider OOO confronts the Yummy as it molts into the Gamecock Yummy who overwhelms the Kamen Rider with his unorthodox fighting style before Kamen Rider OOO switches to Shagorietar. However, the Gamecock Yummy escapes, with Shimoda expressing dismay. By then, Chiyoko takes matters in her own hands by blocking the cameras with Hina's help, resulting with them invoking the Gamecock Yummy's wrath as he chases the two girls. Hina uses a ladder to fend their pursuer off before Kamen Rider OOO arrives and assumes Takatorartar. However, learning from the last fight, the Gamecock Yummy manages to get the upper hand as Shintaro arrives and transforms into Kamen Rider Birth to help Kamen Rider OOO in double-teaming the monster. But the Yummy is forced to fall back after an indirect attack on Shingo has Kamen Rider OOO assume Putotyra Combo while Erika Satonaka arrives to replenish Kamen Rider Birth's ammo. As Eiji holds Ankh from getting back onto Shingo, with the latter's counterpart now strong enough to absorb Ankh, the Gamecock Yummy retreats to the Shimoda residence where his source is revealed to be Tomoko.[39]

Though reluctant for his well-being, Eiji allows Ankh to latch unto Shingo's body as they find the police under the Gamecock Yummy's control and enforcing Shimoda's controlling laws. Later, at the Cous Coussier, Eiji apologizes to Hina for getting Shingo hurt as Ankh refuses to release his hold. Though she has not changed her mind, Hina instead asks Eiji what he would do and he answers that he would get rid of Ankh if it meant saving Shingo. Deciding to track down the Gamecock Yummy, Eiji and Ankh find themselves faced by the police as they are ordered to be evicted from the neighborhood and the restaurant to be shut down. After Eiji's attempt to convince the police not to shut down the Cous Coussier, which Chiyoko ruins by attacking the cops, he and Ankh track down the Gamecock Yummy's host to the Shimoda residence with Shintaro covering their escape. Deciding to wait out the Yummy in hopes of finding its source of nourishment, Shintaro sends out Candroids to keep an eye on the Shimoda residence. Forced to spend the night under a bridge, Eiji and Ankh talk about recent chain of events before Hina arrives with Ankh grabbing her by the throat. However, Ankh finds that he can no longer bring himself to harm Hina as Chiyoko joins them in camping out and celebrating Ankh's "birthday". The next day, Eiji realizes that the Yummy's food is the video camera footage of the ordered neighborhood. The Candroids then proceed to take out the cameras with the Gamecock Yummy emerging from the Shimoda residence to stop them. After warning Ankh not to endanger Shingo, Eiji arrives on the scene as he and Shintaro assume their Kamen Rider forms. However, the two are at a disadvantage until Erika Satonaka arrives to even the odds as Kamen Rider OOO assumes Latoratar Combo to destroy the Gamecock Yummy. Things return to normal soon after as Hina gives Ankh a present meant for Shingo. However, Eiji and Hina find Ankh ambushed by Ankh (Lost) who reveals that his scheme was for Ankh to let his guard down once the Gamecock Yummy was destroyed. Ankh (Lost) then finally absorbs him despite Eiji and Hina's attempts to stop it, with Shingo out cold while Eiji and Hina witness the birth of a complete Ankh.[40]

Having absorbed Ankh, Ankh (Lost) finds out he is missing a Taka Medal, which Ankh gave to Hina prior to being absorbed. Both Eiji and Hina run away until Eiji transforms into OOO Putotyra combo to battle Ankh (Lost). When Ankh (Lost) realizes this as well, he is forced to fall back. Eiji sends a Taka Candroid to keep an eye on him. Eiji and Hina return the Cous Coussier, after Chiyoko gives it a Greek motif, with Shingo greeting the two and revealing that Ankh hid the O Medal Holder full of all of the other Core Medals. Furthermore, Shingo has decided that he will help Eiji out just as Ankh did. As Shingo practices flinging Core Medals Eiji's way, able to think up Random Combos, Kougami watches as he feels the situation with Ankh may worsen Eiji's use of the purple Core Medals. Meanwhile, as Ankh (Lost) is having trouble completely absorbing his other half, Doctor Maki arrives and decides to take advantage of Eiji without Ankh by creating the Ankylosaurus Yummy. At that time, seeing how happy Hina and Shingo are, Eiji thinks that there is no more need for them to get caught up in all this and resumes his life as a wanderer. As dawn comes, after the Candroids pinpoint where Ankh (Lost) is, Eiji finds Shintaro waiting for him as he joins in the Ankh rescue operation. However, the two are stopped in their tracks by the Ankylosaurus Yummy, and they assume their Kamen Rider forms to fight him. However, without Ankh, Kamen Rider OOO is unable to switch Combos and he is defeated. With Kamen Rider Birth holding the Ankylosaurus Yummy off, Eiji crosses paths with Maki. Maki tells him that Ankh is beyond saving and that he should be more worried about the five purple Core Medals in Eiji's body as they resonate with his own.[41]

While on his way to save Ankh from being completely absorbed by Ankh (Lost), Eiji crosses paths with Maki. Though Eiji tries to escape, Maki blocks his way while revealing the purple Core Medals are turning him into a Greeed. After the Ankylosaurus Yummy escaped them, overhearing Maki telling Eiji the tell-tale signs of Greeedification and how advanced his own is, Kamen Rider Birth and Satonaka manage to save Eiji before Maki can rip the Core Medals out of him. As Satonaka reports Maki's condition to Kougami, Shintaro tells the Izumi siblings about Eiji's change with Hina coming to the conclusion that Eiji must stop fighting. The next day, on Maki's orders, the Ankylosaurus Yummy proceeds to freeze people in order to have them call Eiji. Though Hina and Shingo try to stop him, the former is distraught by the sound of people begging for Eiji's help as he runs off. Using Latorartar Combo to make his way there while Kamen Rider Birth holds the Yummy at bay, Kamen Rider OOO thaws everyone out. Once everyone is out of harm's way, Kamen Rider OOO finds Ankh (Lost) waiting for him, revealing that he has completely absorbed Ankh. Refusing to hand the last Taka Medal over to him, Kamen Rider OOO assumes Putotyra Combo to battle the Greeed while Kamen Rider Birth destroys the Ankylosaurus Yummy. Watching the fight, Shingo has Hina realize that Eiji is fighting because Hina wants Ankh saved. Eventually, Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo goes berserk and overwhelms Ankh (Lost) before destroying him by breaking three of his Core Medals. Hina then arrives to talk Eiji back to normal, but they watch Ankh (Lost)'s remains reform into Ankh as he creates a new body modeled after the possessed Shingo. However, Ankh approaches his former human vessel with a malevolent intent.[42]

After Ankh (Lost) is destroyed, Ankh is reformed from the remains. However, Ankh grabs Shingo and reveals his new body is unstable with the number of Core Medals he now has and he still needs the human for a host. With Shingo telling his sister not to worry for him, Ankh takes full control and takes his Taka Medal back from Eiji before flying off when he invokes the purple Core Medals. The event was witnessed by a man named Kusada, whom Ankh noticed while pondering how to achieve his goal with six Core Medals. On a gambit after getting a strange feeling from Kusada, Ankh creates a Yummy from him. As Hina is depressed on Ankh taking her brother and how Shingo would suffer if Eiji and Ankh fight, Shintaro talks to Eiji about the turn of events. Though he understands why Ankh did it, Eiji is convinced to get Shingo back. By then, the White Yummy attacks various women's boyfriends before molting into the Vulture Yummy, attracting Eiji's attention as he and Shintaro arrive while Satonaka opens fire. Assuming Latoraba, Kamen Rider OOO fights the Vulture Yummy with Kamen Rider Birth and Satonaka supporting him. However, the Yummy's whirlwind overwhelms the Kamen Riders before he flies off. As Shintaro is ordered by Kougami to destroy only the purple Core Medals and not the other types, Ankh meets with Maki and offers to get him Eiji's purple medals to achieve his doomsday goal in return to become a vessel to all the other Core Medals. Later that night, Eiji begins to feel his Greedification as Hina arrives with dinner for him to eat as they talk. The next day, the Vulture Yummy resumes his attack as Kamen Riders OOO and Birth arrive to fight him with the former assuming Shagorita. Though the Yummy uses his whirlwind attack, the two Kamen Riders manage to destroy him as the monster's Cell Medals land on Kusada's truck. Jumping on, Ankh thanks Eiji for his help as Kusada drives off with Eiji pursuing on a Ride Vendor before Ankh blasts him off the road. As Shintaro and Hina tend to Eiji's wounds, it is revealed that Kusada was possessed by the Kuwagata Core Medal holding Uva's consciousness and that the Vulture Yummy was acting on both Kusada's desire to take out any guy with a girlfriend and Uva's desire for a new body. Once Uva is revived, he and Ankh arrive to Maki's manor where the other Greeed are dumbfounded to see the return of their two fellow Greeed to the fold.[43]

At Maki's manor, Ankh tells the Greeed that Eiji has the power to destroy their Core Medals so they must join forces to defeat him and regain their Core Medals from him. However, irate that all his scheming has backfired, Kazari is reluctant to follow Ankh and fights him before Uva gets involved to regain his stolen Core Medals. Mezool stops the fight by that time, with Kazari deciding to play along by joining forces with Ankh for now. Meanwhile, as Hina and Shintaro tend to his injuries at the Kougami Foundation building, Eiji reveals the effects of the purple Core Medals before Kougami appears on the monitor and tells the three to meet him in the building's basement to learn more. Once there, Eiji and company enter a room holding items from the ancient civilization that produced the Core Medals which Kougami calls the King's Room. Kougami reveals the full story of the Greeed's origins to them. They were originally homunculi produced by alchemists under the command of the First OOO to serve as the means to test the power of desire itself in the king's agenda to become a living god. However, the First OOO was unable to contain all the desire within the Core Medals due to his own desire. Though Eiji is a more ideal vessel due to his tragic experience in Africa leaving him without any desire of his own, the purple Core Medals choosing him as a host was unexpected. When Hina asks how to save Eiji, Kougami explains that the answer to controlling the purple Core Medals is for Eiji to find his own desire. The next few days, after multiple attempts, Eiji rests as Hina and Shintaro discuss how Eiji and Ankh knew that they were bound to eventually fight each other. By then, the Greeed arrive to block their way as Ankh destroys the van the humans were traveling in to ensure no escape. After Hina gets to safety, Eiji and Shintaro assume their Kamen Rider forms to fight the Greeed. As Kamen Rider Birth fights with Uva and Kazari, Kamen Rider OOO Latoraba has his own trouble with Mezool and Gamel until he assumes Latorartar Combo. However, Ankh cancels the Combo and tries to take the medals before Hina grabs them. After seeing that Ankh is beyond redemption, Hina resolves to help Eiji and her brother. Before Eiji can transform back to Kamen Rider OOO, Gamel cancels the transformation long enough for Kazari to regain his Core Medals and achieve his complete resurrection. When Kazari tries to get the rest of Eiji's Core Medals, Kamen Rider Birth fights the Greeed on his own and is heavily damaged in the process. Transforming into Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo, Eiji fights Kazari and manages to mortally damage his main Lion Medal before canceling the transformation to watch Ankh take his leave. Limping away, Kazari meets with Maki in hopes of getting the Core Medal cache. However, assuming his new Greeed form, Maki rips out all of the stable Core Medals from Kazari's body and tells him that he has no use for a Greeed who will not follow his plan. On the verge of Cell Medal breakdown, Kazari laments that he is unable to have everything the world has to offer as he is reduced to Cell Medals until his Lion Medal imminently and finally, shatters.[44]

With Maki giving Kazari's remaining Core Medals to Ankh, the two discuss how he is evolving beyond the Greeed. Outside, after setting up a plan to storm Maki's manor, Goto and Satonaka lure the Greeed out with the former using the Kamen Rider Birth Prototype suit. At the same time, Eiji enters the mansion to find Ankh as he takes back a combo set of Kazari's Core Medals. When Eiji attempts to ask him again, Ankh reveals his intentions to make Shingo into his new body by placing Core Medals into him. As the two battles join, Maki arrives to take the O Medal Case before revealing the Greeed are bound by their need to consume anything and anyone to achieve their personal desire. When Eiji manages to keep him from taking his purple Core Medals through sheer force of will, Maki becomes the Kyouryu Greeed and uses his power to overwhelm everyone before taking his leave. As Eiji is told by Goto to focus more on himself than Shingo's condition, Maki presents Ankh with Eiji's Core Medals. The other Greeed arrive with Mezool demanding their Core Medals, though unnerved when Maki scolds her for the self-delusion of being the Greeed's mother figure. With the Greeed refusing to back down from a chance of being fully resurrected, Ankh gives them their Core Medals much to Maki's dismay though he sees the logic behind it. With Uva the only one not whole, Mezool discards Gamel for his inability to sake her greatest desire. The next day, Mezool proceeds to abduct various mother/child pairs in order to know true maternal love, even if it kills her human prisoners, before Eiji and Shintaro find her. The two assume their Kamen Rider forms to fight her, but Kamen Rider OOO's Latorartar Combo is powerless against the complete Mezool. With Proto-Birth unable to continue, Kamen Rider OOO uses his Latorartar Combo in conjunction with the Toride Vendor and the Medagabryu to shatter a set of Mezool's Core Medals. By then, Gamel arrives as Mezool dies in his arms and, out of rage, Gamel assumes his complete Greeed form and knocks the Kamen Riders away with his power.[45]

After knocking the Kamen Riders off the bridge, a distraught Gamel gets ready to leave when Maki arrives and demands the Denki Unagi Medal that he took from Mezool's remains. But Gamel refuses, as he wants to revive her, getting into a brief fight Maki before running off. Managing to climb back up, Shintaro finds Eiji nowhere in sight. He looks for Eiji until Satonaka calls him about Gamel turning people into Cell Medals in his futile attempt to revive Mezool. Receiving the repaired Birth Driver, Shintaro becomes Kamen Rider Birth to fight Gamel. However, the fight goes bad for Shintaro until Akira Date unexpectedly appears with the prototype Birth Driver to transform into Kamen Rider Birth Prototype. Still at a disadvantage, the two Births use a do-or-die double Cell Burst in hopes of finishing the Greeed off. Though the attack does not finish Gamel, it does finish the damage that Maki started on his two Core Medals. On the verge of Cell Medal breakdown, Gamel gives his last candy to the Denki Unagi Medal before breaking up. Elsewhere, Eiji ends up on an island where his Greedification progresses as he looks for the missing OOO Driver. Elsewhere, Ankh heads to the Cous Coussier where he asks Hina if he can use Shingo's body permanently, but she refuses. Ankh finds his way to the island where Eiji has ended up to take back the OOO Driver. The two fight, with Ankh revealing that his true goal is to have a true life that the Greeed all lack. Though Eiji understands, he refuses to let Ankh have his way while he is forced to admit how the Greeed helped him achieve his wish to help others. Watching from afar, Maki decides to intensify the fight by transferring one of his Core Medals into Eiji, causing him to go mad while he takes the Taka Medal from Ankh. Eiji transforms using the Taka, Tora, and Batta Medals into a corrupted form of Kamen Rider OOO Tatoba Combo with purple eyes and then he transforms into a Greeed after another purple Core Medal is transferred into him. To defend himself, Ankh is forced to assume his complete Greeed form to fight the Eiji Greeed.[46]

Driven mad by the seven purple Core Medals in his body, the Eiji Greeed battles Ankh as he assumes his full Greeed form to defend himself. Though Eiji realizes his desire and manages to become Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo, his mind is still unstable to act against the Medals' instincts as he overpowers Ankh. Ankh finds himself unable to kill Eiji due to the memories of their time together, but he still manages to barely defeat him. Taking Eiji's remaining Core Medals, Maki attempts to kill Eiji so he can get the purple Core Medals out of him. However, Ankh refuses to allow it as he ensures Maki is distracted long enough for Satonaka to get Eiji to safety. Seeing Ankh to be of no use to him, Maki rips out most of his Core Medals before looking for Uva. Soon after,Hina tells Chiyoko the truth behind Ankh and encouraged not to choose between the three men in her life, Hina finds the wounded Greeed. Though he assures her that Shingo is fine, Ankh reveals that Maki has damaged the Taka Medal holding his consciousness and it will shatter soon, resulting in his death. Elsewhere, after Satonaka gives them the key to the King's Room, Shintaro and Date learn that Eiji has a desire now: the power to help others. But to their horror, Kougami then states the next phase is for Eiji to absorb the thousands of Cell Medals they have been collecting to become the ultimate OOO, even though it might turn him into the ultimate Greeed instead. However, sensing Maki's presence, as Shintaro and Date are outraged at Kougami's insane idea, Eiji runs out of the building to face him. Assuming their fighting forms, Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo fights the Kyouryu Greeed as Kamen Rider Birth and Kamen Rider Birth Prototype support him while convincing Eiji not to rely on the purple Core Medals' power. As the Kamen Riders try to calm their ally down, Maki gives Uva the last of his Core Medals, enabling the Greeed to assume his fully resurrected form and overpower Kamen Rider OOO. As the two Kamen Rider Births battle Uva, with a dying Ankh making his way back to him, Eiji runs off back to the King's Room to undergo his transformation into a living god.[47]

Yasuko Kobayashi August 28, 2011

As Shintaro and Date are powerless against the complete Uva, they notice a massive explosion nearby. Emerging from the Kougami Foundation, with the weight of a million Cell Medals inside him, Eiji arrives as Kougami meets with Maki above the battlefield. With the King's Core Medals, three of the tenth Core Medals from each set, Eiji becomes Kamen Rider OOO and easily defeats Uva with both the Medajaribur and the Medagabryu. However, refusing to accept Kougami's ideals, Maki intervenes and installs the other Core Medals into Uva against his will. Kamen Rider OOO attempts to stop Maki, but is powerless, just as Ankh arrives to his aid. Uva attempts to flee with Maki in pursuit as Ankh restores his friendship with Eiji. However, the purple Core Medals inside Kamen Rider OOO force Eiji to revert while destroying the King's Medals. Later that night, Ankh tells Hina not to tell Eiji that he is dying, but she feels conflicted about his request as well as Eiji's worsening condition. The next day, as Chiyoko finds Kiyo-chan dressed up as Maki in her restaurant, Uva turns into the out of control Medal Vessel that proceeds to create an army of Waste Yummy out of the matter it consumes. Kougami bakes a birthday cake amidst the chaos, while Kamen Riders Birth and Birth Prototype, along with Satonaka deal with the Waste Yummy and Kamen Rider OOO Putotyra Combo and Ankh battle Maki. When Eiji's risky Grand of Rage attack using the Cell Medals he has absorbed fails to defeat the Kyouryu Greeed, Eiji prepares to assume his Greeed form when Ankh intervenes by throwing him his Core Medals. Realizing that Ankh is sacrificing his final moments to save him, with Ankh now fighting by his side in spirit, Eiji becomes Kamen Rider OOO Tajadol Combo and defeats Maki using a purple Core Medal powered Giga Scan. But this causes a black hole to emerge from within the Kyouryu Greeed, sucking him in along with all the Core Medals before the Medal Vessel explodes. Falling to his death while unconscious, Eiji is awakened by Ankh as the Greeed sees that Eiji knows he is about to die and bids his goodbyes, leaving only half of the Taka Medal that once contained his consciousness. Shintaro, as Kamen Rider Birth, manages to save Eiji by catching him midair with the Cutter Wings installed. Upon seeing his friends below, Eiji realizes he has achieved his desire to reach others. Soon after, with Hina giving him the other half of Ankh's Taka Medal that she found through a similar manifestation of their fallen friend, Eiji decides to leave Japan and resume his worldly travels.


Sometime later, everyone returns to their previous lives. Shingo and Shintaro return to the police force, and one day as Hina goes to fashion school, they pass by two high school students, one of whom is carrying a strange switch-like device. Akira Date begins work as a relief doctor. Kougami continues to have Erika Satonaka in his employ as he bakes more birthday cakes. One day, everyone visits the Cous Coussier and Chiyoko serves them a cake before revealing an iPad with Eiji on screen somewhere in a desert, using an iPhone to call them with FaceTime and update them on his journeys. Before he leaves to his next destination, a fresh pair of underwear in tow, he looks at the broken Taka Medal and promises to find a way to fix it, seemingly unaware of the spectral Ankh arm following him.[48]
