The Ringed Wizard[edit]

1 "The Ringed Wizard"
"Yubiwa no Mahōtsukai" (指輪の魔法使い) 
Tsuyoshi Kida September 2, 2012
A police squad led by Detective Amino arrives at a warehouse, where workers are being attacked by strange creatures. When rookie Detective Rinko Daimon and the police are outmatched by the Ghouls and their leader Minotauros, a youth named Haruto Soma arrives at the scene. Identified by Minotauros as a wizard, Haruto transforms into the figure Wizard to swiftly dispatch the Ghouls and break one of Minotauros' horns, forcing the Phantom to retreat. After summoning his Plamonsters to search for Minotauros, Haruto is confronted by Rinko. He explains to her that humans with magic potential, known as Gates, are being targeted by Phantoms, monsters that emerge from Gates who have given in to their own despair. Demanding more information from him and seeing him as a potential threat upon revealing that he has a Phantom inside him, she arrests him. At the police station, Rinko is informed by Amino—who now wears a bandage around his head—and the police chief that they are dropping the case due to their inability to handle the threat. On her way to free Haruto, Koyomi passes by both Rinko and Amino, and detects a strange aura within the latter. The Blue Unicorn Plamonster breaks into Haruto's cell to deliver him a message from Koyomi, warning him that Amino is the Phantom they are after. After deducing that Rinko is the Gate, he promptly uses the Small Magic Ring to shrink himself and ride on Blue Unicorn to break out of jail. Meanwhile, at a park, Rinko explains to Amino that she became a detective because her father was a policeman himself. Suddenly, Amino grabs Rinko's locket and slaps her to the ground before revealing himself to be Minotauros and stomping on the locket, forcing her into despair. Haruto and Koyomi arrive to intervene; while Koyomi looks after Rinko, Haruto transforms into Kamen Rider Wizard to battle the Phantom. Kamen Rider Wizard uses his Land Style and Hurricane Style attacks before finishing off Minotauros with Flame Style's Strike Wizard Rider Kick. When Rinko's body begins to show signs of a Phantom about to emerge, Kamen Rider Wizard places an Engage Ring on her right hand and enters her Underworld to neutralize her inner Phantom Jabberwock using his Winger Wizardragon and the Wizarswordgun. No longer a Gate, Rinko wakes up on a park bench and looks at the Engage Ring on her hand as Haruto takes Koyomi back home.[1]

September 9, 2012
At a park, Medusa and Phoenix summon the Phantom Hellhound to target another Gate within the premises. As Hellhound attacks Shunpei Nara and a group of children, Haruto intervenes and transforms into Kamen Rider Wizard to battle the Phantom. After Hellhound retreats, Shunpei approaches Haruto and asks him to make him his apprentice. Haruto refuses, but finds himself being chased by Shunpei all over town. Shunpei finally corners Haruto at the Donut Shop Hungry, and he tells him he wants to help people with magic, but Haruto explains that the world does not need any more wizards and tells Shunpei to keep dreaming before he walks away. Meanwhile, after being questioned by Superintendent Masanori Kizaki of National Security Bureau Section Zero for her involvement with Kamen Rider Wizard, Rinko goes to the Antique Shop Omokagedō to look for Haruto. There, she meets Koyomi and Shigeru Wajima. Koyomi explains to Rinko that six months ago, on the day of a solar eclipse, she and Haruto were kidnapped along with many other Gates to be forced into despair during a sacrificial ritual. While nearly everyone was consumed by their Phantoms, Haruto fought to contain the Phantom within him. After the eclipse, a mysterious person donning an orange mask and a white robe laid an unconscious Koyomi next to Haruto and granted him the Wizardriver and the Wizard Rings. As a result of the incident, Koyomi lost her memories of her life from before the event while Haruto became a wizard, vowing never to let anyone become a Phantom. Later, Shunpei picks up a children's book at a library when he is surrounded by Hellhound and a platoon of Ghouls. As a Ghoul corners him against a tree, he closes his eyes and points his finger at it, suddenly casting a weak flame-throwing spell before Haruto arrives at the scene. Shunpei is told to run, but he is in shock from casting a spell, and Rinko jumps in to save him from another Ghoul. Kamen Rider Wizard disposes of all the Ghouls before he chases Hellhound on motorcycle. During the chase, he blasts the Phantom into a warehouse with his Wizarswordgun. Minutes after running for safety, Shunpei comes to the realization that he himself can wield magic.[2]

September 16, 2012
Excited over his newly discovered ability to create fire from his hands, Shunpei starts showing off his magical powers to the children at the park before he is invited by Kazuo Tajima of TV Yūhi for an interview on his Morning Island show. After doing a short demonstration in front of the camera, Shunpei is offered a spot on live TV before Haruto finds him. At the Hungry stand, Shunpei tries to show off his power in front of Haruto, but to no avail. Upon remembering that Hellhound breathes fire, Haruto realizes that the Phantom survived and is playing mind games on Shunpei. Though Haruto tries to explain it to him, Shunpei accuses him of keeping him down before he walks away. Meanwhile, revealing he had faked his death through his ability to hide in shadows, Hellhound assures Medusa and Phoenix that a new Phantom will be born the next day. Later that night, at Omokagedō, Haruto ponders on his argument with Shunpei before Wajima reminds him of how they met six months ago, when Haruto and Koyomi traced the origin of the Flame Ring to Wajima and asked him to craft more rings to battle the Phantoms. Given a new Wizard Ring and told that it might help light the way for him, Haruto's conviction is restored. The next morning, Haruto receives a phone call from Rinko about Shunpei on TV. Realizing that Tajima is the Phantom orchestrating Shunpei for the fall, Haruto rushes to the TV station to save Shunpei as he is publicly humiliated on national TV when his "magic" fails on him. Delighting in his target's misery, Hellhound reveals himself before entering Shunpei's shadow to force him into incinerating the Forest Wizard book to completely send him to despair. Kamen Rider Wizard battles Hellhound and uses the Light Magic Ring to flush out the Phantom from the shadows before transforming to Water Style to counter the Phantom's flame attacks and destroy him with the Water Slash Strike. Giving Shunpei an Engage Ring, Kamen Rider Wizard enters his Underworld and manages to destroy the inner Phantom Cyclops while retrieving a mental copy of the Forest Wizard. Later, as Rinko arrives at Omokagedō to inform Haruto about the media blackout involving his fight with Hellhound, she learns that Shunpei is now Haruto's assistant to Koyomi's dismay.[3]

Meanwhile, at a junkyard, Misa and Yugo wake up Caitsith and order him to hunt down a new Gate in the form of pianist Eisaku Takagi. Just as Caitsith attacks Eisaku at a conservatory, Haruto arrives to intervene while Rinko shows up to bring Eisaku to safety. After a lengthy battle, the Phantom retreats. Later, Haruto and Rinko explain to Eisaku about his situation as a Gate, but Eisaku is more concerned about his upcoming piano competition and is not worried about being attacked. It is revealed that Eisaku was a well renowned pianist who swept every contest he participated in, but has not won anything since joining the conservatory; thus, he hopes for the upcoming competition to be his big comeback. Koyomi and Shunpei arrive at the conservatory, where Koyomi reveals to Rinko that she can see through a Phantom's disguise. Just as the four get into an argument, Caitsith in his human form shows up. Haruto and Rinko chase after the Phantom, but lose him past the Donut Shop Hungry. Meanwhile, Koyomi and Shunpei follow Eisaku toward a lake, concerned about his safety when Misa suddenly appears. However, instead of Eisaku, Medusa targets Koyomi, entangling her with her hair and siphoning off her magical power before walking away. Haruto and Rinko rush to the scene, where Haruto recharges Koyomi's magical power through her Please Magic Ring. Caitsith once again targets Eisaku with the intent to chop off his hands, but Eisaku offers him to finish the job—much to the Phantom's dismay. Kamen Rider Wizard arrives to once again do battle with Caitsith. He traps the Phantom with the Bind Magic Ring, but as he prepares to execute the Flame Style's Strike Wizard Rider Kick, the spell malfunctions, as he is out of magical power.[4]

Taking advantage of Haruto's sudden loss of magical power during battle, Caitsith manages to escape. Haruto confronts Takagi as he realizes the pianist wanted the Phantom to cripple him and take him out of the piano competition. Koyomi blames herself for Haruto's loss as he had used all of his remaining magical power to reanimate her. As she walks away, Haruto follows her, but he suddenly passes out. Back at the Antique Shop Omokagedō, as Koyomi watches over Haruto, Wajima explains to Rinko and Shunpei that Koyomi is actually a Gate whose body was somehow preserved after her Phantom was manifested. As the Phantom had taken her life and memories, she needs a regular supply of magical power from Haruto in order to survive. When Haruto wakes up, he explains to Koyomi that even a negative person such as Takagi needs hope. Later that night, Koyomi, Rinko and Shunpei pay Takagi a visit. Koyomi argues with Takagi over his fear of facing the present and moving on to the future, assuring him that Haruto will be there to protect him. The next day, as Takagi performs at the competition, Caitsith unleashes an army of Ghouls and prepares to crash the event, but is stopped by Kamen Rider Wizard, who uses the Copy Magic Ring to duplicate himself and destroy the Ghouls before finishing off the Phantom with the Hurricane Style's Slash Strike.

Brought to Yamagata's manor, Haruto informs him and Manami of the Phantom's intent and calls Rinko to help him keep an eye on them to find out which one is the Gate that Gnome is after. However, upon hearing that Rinko is a cop, Manami decides to go home with Haruto, accompanying him before she ditches him when she learns he can only use his magic to fight Phantoms and nothing else. By the time Haruto finds Manami, she is surrounded by Shunpei, Wajima, and the donut shop worker who all claim to be dating her. Exposed to have been scamming money off her dates, not seeing anything wrong about it, Manami takes her leave before she is dragged underground by Gnome. Alerted by Blue Unicorn and using his Land Style to reach Manami, Kamen Rider Wizard fights Ghouls before saving Manami as he explains that saving her is something he must do regardless of her profession.

After getting a call from Rinko that she got Manami's address from the Renaissance Gym, Haruto joins the cop and make their way to her house. As they draw near, they find Manami attacked by Gnome with Haruto driving the Phantom off and becoming Kamen Rider Wizard to fight him. However, Gnome escapes and Haruto returns to find Manami having run off as Rinko saw him ads[clarification needed] for the house that appears in a childhood photograph of Manami. Catching up to Manami to give her back her photo, Haruto learns her intent is to buy back her childhood home to preserve it. Haruto tells her that he understands losing a family before he and Manami see her childhood home going up in flames as they find Gnome waiting inside for them. Using Water Style to take out the flames, Kamen Rider Wizard takes Manami outside and tells her to not be consumed by her past and to focus on the present before going after Gnome. As Manami realizes he is right, Wizard finds himself in a predicament with Gnome's burrowing fighting style before becoming Kamen Rider Wizard Land Style with the Big Ring to force the Phantom to the surface so he use the Smell Ring to overwhelm his senses. Wizard then finishes Gnome off with a Drill Strike Wizard kick. Soon after Manami thanks Haruto with the intent to turn herself in, Rinko arrives with Yamagata, who is revealed to be buying the property so Manami can buy it from him once she served. Elsewhere, with four Phantoms killed off since Wizard's appearance, Phoenix takes Gnome's failure personal as he loses it.[7]

At Omokagedō, Shunpei looks at the Wizard Rings that Wajima made before finding a strange Magic Ring Haruto can not use.

Koyomi opens the box to find a red Magic Stone that reacts with the Magic Ring as Wajima takes it to make a new Wizard Ring. As he goes on a walk with Shunpei and Rinko, Haruto realizes the White Garuda may belong to the White Wizard before being alerted to a boy named Hiroki Itoh attacked by Ghouls. Transforming to fight, Kamen Rider Wizard destroys the Ghouls while Rinko and Shunpei look after the child. When Haruto asks where the boy lives, he finds himself kicked in the groin as Rinko finds herself arrested when she tries to keep Hiroki from running off. After clearing up things at the station, Hiroki's mother arrives as Haruto recognizes her as Mikiko Itoh. As the others discuss their relation, Mikiko being the nurse who attempted to save his parents after being mortally wounded in a car crash, Haruto informs the woman of her son's endangerment while promising to look after him. However, Hiroki refuses to go home as Mikiko entrusts her son to live at Omokagedō for a while. Later that night, Hiroki reveals to Haruto that ran away from home as his father never listens to him and Mikiko sides with him. But Haruto shows him that Mikiko is concerned, convincing Hiroki to talk with his mother tomorrow. Elsewhere, when refused by Medusa into letting him go after Wizard when her Ghouls failed to get the boy, Phoenix asks for Wiseman's permission to put an end to the wizard's meddling in their affairs. Wiseman allows it and gives Phoenix an idea to place the young Gate in despair. The next day, Phoenix beats Mikiko to an inch of her life as Haruto and Hiroki arrive.

As Mikiko is hospitalized, Rinko rescues Haruto from the river and brings him back to Omokagedō.

Reaching Hiroki's father in time in Hurricane Style, yet too weak to fight, Kamen Rider Wizard spirits Hiroki's father to the hospital instead, collapsing due to his low levels of mana. After having a nightmare about Phoenix killing Hiroki's parents and the boy's Phantom manifesting, Haruto awakens to find the former alive and well while Hiroki blames himself for their condition. With the scene reminding him of his own parents, Haruto tells Hiroki that this is not his fault and that he must not give up on hope. Knowing that killing Phoenix is the only way to save Hiroki's parents, Haruto confines to Rinko that he scared of standing by and let them die but has no idea how to deal with the Phantom. However, Koyomi arrives with the ring Wajima made from the stone brought by the White Garuda. As Haruto takes it, he senses Wizardragon reacting to the ring and realizes it will let him use his inner Phantom's power. By then, Phoenix arrives with Haruto telling a concerned Rinko that seeking his inner Phantom's aid is the only way to stop the Phantom. Being beaten senselessly by Phoenix, Wizard attempts to use the Flame Dragon Ring before he manages to contact Wizardragon within his Underworld. Wizardragon warns him that although the Transformation Ring can indeed channel his power, its use may eventually consume Haruto in despair. But once hearing Haruto's retort that the dragon's power is his hope, an amused Wizardragon decides to give Wizard the power he desires. With Wizardragon's powers, Wizard transforms into Kamen Rider Wizard Flame Dragon. With the tables turned, Wizard destroys Phoenix with his Dragon Breath attack. As a few days pass, Haruto tells the others that both Hiroki's parents are recovering and Hiroki is reconnecting with them. Elsewhere, Medusa mockingly muses Haruto's power to a revived Phoenix.[9]

Meanwhile, Yuzuru appears before Nito and Mayu but acts strangely before them, revealing himself as the blue-colored Kamen Rider Mage who easily defeats Nito and kidnaps Mayu. At Fueki's house, Haruto learns from him that he obtained the power of magic upon creating the artificial Phantom Carbuncle and implanting it in his body. He also reveals that with the power of Haruto and the other wizards, he intends to reenact the Sabbath to gather enough mana to revive Koyomi using the Philosopher's Stone that is stored inside her lifeless body. With Haruto unwilling to cooperate, Fueki commands Yamamoto, who transforms into a green-colored Kamen Rider Mage, to attack him.[48] 

The Beginning of the Sabbath[edit]

49 "The Beginning of the Sabbath"
"Sabato no Makuake" (サバトの幕開け) 
Tsuyoshi Kida September 1, 2013
Haruto defends himself against Yamamoto's attacks until Koyomi appears and the Green Kamen Rider Mage takes advantage of the distraction to defeat him. Meanwhile, Nito awakens at the Omokagedō who were informed by Shunpei about Mayu's kidnapping. Mayu awakens beside Haruto at the White Wizard's altar and learns from Fueki that both Yuzuru and Yamamoto are not acting on their own accord, but are being controlled by him instead. Now in possession of all four Wizards, Fueki makes preparations to begin the new Sabbath. Nito, Shunpei, and Rinko look in Fueki's house for clues about where he could have taken Haruto and the others when Gremlin appears before them. As the four wizards are restrained in separate points around the city, Haruto agrees to cooperate with Fueki to save Koyomi, until he reveals that the first Sabbath failed to fully ressurect her because he used ordinary Phantoms as pillars, thus not gathering enough mana for it. However, Haruto's awakening as a wizard gave him the idea to strengthen the ritual by using wizards instead of Phantoms to activate it, extending the range of the Sabbath to encompass the entire Tokyo area and gather mana from all Gates within it, but at the cost of turning them into Phantoms and killing the rest of the population, just as Gremlin had speculated to Nito and the others. Despite Haruto's pleas to stop it, Fueki makes use of the ring he obtained from Wajima, the Eclipse Ring, to bring forth a solar eclipse onto the city and start the Sabbath. All humans inside the area of the spell start suffering with its effects, except Nito, who confronts the White Wizard by himself as Kamen Rider Beast, but is once again defeated. However, in a last effort, Kamen Rider Beast Hyper uses Fueki's Hamel Cane to destroy his Beast Driver and break Beast Chimera free. The Phantom devours all of the mana released by the Sabbath and stops the ritual, before it bids farewell to Nito, fleeing to parts unknown. Enraged by Nito's interference, Fueki is about to kill him when Haruto appears to confront the White Wizard.[49] 

What Is Important?[edit]

Tsuyoshi Kida September 8, 2013
Haruto manages to save Nito from Fueki's anger, but fails to prevent the White Wizard from escaping with Koyomi. As Haruto leaves in pursuit of them, Nito reunites with Rinko, Shunpei, and the other wizards. Yamamoto then declares that he does not want to be involved in their battle anymore and leaves to reunite with his wife. Yuzuru declares that he intends to keep fighting as a wizard, but Nito dissuades him from doing so, and Mayu also shows some hesitation after what happened with Medusa. Back at Fueki's house, he prepares to head elsewhere, taking Koyomi with him, until Gremlin appears to attack them. As Fueki confronts the Phantom, Koyomi finds Haruto's Infinity Ring and flees with it. The White Wizard impales Gremlin with his Hamel Cane, but as he is about to retrieve it, he realizes that Koyomi is escaping and pursues her instead. Near the lake where she used to play, Koyomi starts running out of mana just as Haruto finds her, but she refuses his help, claiming that all she wants is to rest in peace and returns the Infinity Ring to him. Fueki then appears before them and Haruto transforms into Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Style to confront him. Their battle ends in a stalemate after both Kamen Rider Wizard and the White Wizard unleash their Kick Strikes at each other. However, Gremlin appears soon after and kills Fueki by destroying his Driver with the Hamel Cane and also uses it to extract the Philosopher's Stone from Koyomi. As Gremlin leaves with the Philosopher's Stone, Koyomi thanks Haruto for all the happy memories she had with him and their friends before she dies in his arms.[50] 

The Last Hope[edit]

51 "The Last Hope"
"Saigo no Kibō" (最後の希望) 
Tsuyoshi Kida September 15, 2013
Gremlin absorbs the Philosopher's Stone, increasing his powers. Back at the Omokagedō, Haruto informs the others about Koyomi's death and shuts himself in his room. However, it does not take long for Gremlin to start a rampage in attempt to draw mana to fuel the Philosopher Stone, destroying the Donut Shop Hungry's van during his assault. Despite having no magic power, Nito, Rinko, and Shunpei try their best to protect the civilians from Gremlin's Ghouls. Just when they find themselves cornered, Mayu, Yuzuru, and Yamamoto appear to rescue them. Together, the three Kamen Rider Mages dispose of the Ghouls, but are easily defeated by Gremlin. Determined to fulfill Koyomi's last wish, Haruto joins the fight but even Kamen Rider Wizard Infinity Style fails to defeat Gremlin and he is forced to turn back to Flame Style. Refusing to give up, Kamen Rider Wizard manages to thrust his hand into Gremlin's body to reach for the Philosopher's Stone inside him. Reunited with Koyomi in spirit, Haruto retrieves the stone, which transforms itself into the Hope Ring, and finishes Gremlin with an enhanced Kick Strike. Some time later, it is shown that Mayu has joined Section Zero with Rinko, Nito starts searching for Beast Chimera to learn more about it, accompanied by Yuzuru, Yamamoto is living happily with his wife and daughter, Shunpei had become Wajima's ringcraft apprentice, the Donut Hungry Shop has returned to business and Haruto has left on a travel to look for a place to hide the Philosopher's Stone and make sure that it will be never used again.[51] 

The Kamen Rider Rings[edit]

52 "The Kamen Rider Rings"
"Kamen Raidā no Yubiwa" (仮面ライダーの指輪) 
Shō Aikawa September 22, 2013
A band of monsters are locating a chest containing the Rider Rings, only for them to be stolen by two children. Meanwhile on his new journey after Gremlin's destruction, Haruto hears the cries of children from a giant Magic Stone and is sucked in. He soon awakes and finds himself in an alternate world where all of the various monsters ever defeated by Kamen Riders end up in. He manages to run into the children as well as the elder versions of the Doughnut Shop Hungry's Manager and Worker and younger versions of Rinko and Shunpei. Furthermore, civilians around them begin transforming into monsters to capture the children under the order of Amadum, the ruler of the world. The children escape using Kamen Riders Double, Fourze, Faiz, and Kabuto; while Kamen Riders OOO and Decade are the children's getaway drivers. Before departing, Kamen Rider Decade questions Haruto if this is the World of Wizard, only for Haruto to refute the claim. Later, Haruto passes by an alternate version of the Omokagedō, where the world's Wajima explains to him that the children are beginning to transform into monsters. While watching over the children, he learns that the little girl's name is Koyomi. Suddenly, Amadum summons Haruto and explains that he needs the Rider Rings to prevent the monsters spilling into a new world. He also meets Nito, who came to this world prior to losing Beast Chimera, in Amadum's lair as well. On their way back, Haruto notices a mirage of Koyomi, then looks at this new ring and asking Koyomi if that is her wish. Returning with Nito to the Omokagedō, Haruto learns that the children are gone, but not before they trapped Wajima, Shunpei, and Rinko in the Mirror World using the Ryuki Rider Ring. Using the Clear Ring, Haruto enters the Mirror World where Kamen Rider Ryuki tells him that the children need to be protected just before releasing everyone from the Mirror World. However, before leaving, Wajima explains to Haruto that the children were destined to become monsters, but they believe that in leaving their world they hope they can remain human. The children escape only to run into Amadum's followers. Haruto and Nito get to them in time, but are brushed aside. Nito expresses that it is not part of Amadum's bargain, so both Haruto and Nito transform to fight. The boy uses a Wizardriver to summon Kamen Riders Hibiki, Kiva, Den-O, Agito, and Kuuga to save themselves, but also fight off Kamen Rider Wizard and Beast, as they realize that Haruto and Nito are also trying to stop them. The children then use the rings in an attempt to escape the world, calling out to someone on to Earth to save them. Suddenly, a young man turns around and is beckoned by the cries. A portal opens and something crashes out from it, which reveals to be a new Kamen Rider in orange-colored armor who singlehandedly destroys Amadum's followers. Kamen Rider Wizard asks the new Kamen Rider who he is and the young man proclaims that he is Armored Rider Gaim.[52] 

The Endless Story[edit]

53 "The Endless Story"
"Owaranai Monogatari" (終わらない物語) 
Shō Aikawa September 29, 2013
After Armored Rider Gaim introduces himself to Kamen Riders Wizard and Beast, he is able to return to his world before Amadum appears. He then overpowers the summoned Kamen Riders as he tells Haruto and Nito that the children will fully transform into monsters soon. Before Amadum and his monsters attack them, Nito gives Haruto two of his rings, so he can escape with the children, and he also steals the Fourze Kamen Rider Ring. Amadum summons Kamen Rider Decade to retrieve the stolen ring. After they escape, the children tell Haruto the reason why they want to leave their world and they want him to kill them if they transform into monsters. While Haruto wonders what can he do to save the alternate Koyomi, Kamen Rider Decade appears, cancelling his transformation. Tsukasa Kadoya wonders why Haruto has entered the World of Monsters, to which he replies that he heard voices that needed help. Nito sneaks into Amadum's lair, however he knows that Kamen Rider Beast is in his lair, so he summons all of the Kamen Riders and tells Nito that the Kamen Riders' power are born in the World of Monsters, including Kamen Riders Wizard and Beast and he wants to gain the powers for himself. Nito transforms, but he is easily defeated by Amadum's monster lackeys and he starts to disappear into dust. While Rinko and Shunpei are taking care of the children, monsters appear to attack them as Tsukasa threatens Haruto to return the Kamen Rider Ring to Amadum. Tsukasa arrives at Amadum's lair, along with the boy, and returns the ring to Amadum. Amadum tells Tsukasa that he is imprisoned in the World of Monsters and he wanted to escape out of this world. Haruto also appears, so Amadum summons all of the Kamen Riders to attack Haruto, but they refuses his order. Tsukasa tells Amadum that Kamen Riders fight for freedom, besides justice. Amadum then summons other monsters to attack the Kamen Riders, so Tsukasa and Haruto transform. After defeating the monsters, Amadum forces the boy to pray for help. The Kamen Riders tries to stop him, but Amadum reveals his true monstrous form and manages to absorb all of the Kamen Riders' powers. The boy decides to stay in World of Monsters after hearing Haruto's words on what it means to fight for, as he prays to call someone. Armored Rider Gaim arrives as he take the name of "Kamen Rider Gaim" before he overpowers Amadum, while also learning the meaning of being a Kamen Rider. The Kamen Riders regain their powers as they change into their most powerful forms to defeat Amadum. After Amadum is defeated, the Kamen Rider Rings vanish as the Kamen Riders return back to their worlds. Tsukasa continues his journey as Haruto tells the boy that he does not need to become a monster, but can instead become a Kamen Rider, giving the boy the Infinity Ring before resuming his journey in his own world. As Wajima, Rinko, and Shunpei bring Koyomi, who has recovered, to see the boy, she says his name: Haruto.[53]
