Continuity and Placement


As Commander Kage would charge in the direction of the four Kamen Riders, transforming into his monstrous form through the MasqueRizer and the Kage Masquerade Card, sending the four Riders flying with a powerful strike. As Sho and Naomi would crash into a nearby building, they would then see Commander Kage leading the horde, as Mikata and Sora would end up somewhere nearby the other two Riders. And as the four Riders would get up, beginning to pull out their respective weapons, they would see Kage leading the horde of Worker Masqueraders and Engineer Masqueraders, before Sho would wince a little from the sudden attack.

Mikata would help him get up, as the four would continue to prepare fighting, Naomi and Sora holding the Ankokuken Kurayami and the Territory Scythe respectively. Sho would take a deep breath, as he would then pull out the Kinen-Blade, Mikata also pulling out the An'nai-Blade. The four Riders would then charge towards the horde, beginning to hack and slash at the horde, powered by the rush of adrenaline that was filling their bones and veins. And as they would barely be able to push the surrounding horde, they would continuing to hack and slash, before Naomi and Sora would suddenly become the targets of the Elite Worker and Elite Engineer Masqueraders, the two striking them down.

And as the two transformed were thrown into the side of some shrubbery, much to Sho's horror, they would be forced out of their transformations, forced to hide from the horde of Masqueraders that were charging towards them. Suddenly, as they would flee for one of the corners that overlooked the battlefield, the Elite Worker and Elite Engineer Masqueraders would suddenly detect them, charging towards the two individuals. As Naomi stood in front of Sora to defend the two of them, suddenly, out of the blue, orange and blue bullets would then be sent flying in the direction of the Masqueraders, sending them reeling from the attack.

As Sho and Mikata looked to see the source of the attack, they would see Emu Hojo and Parad, the two transformed into Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Double Action Gamer Level XX L and R, alongside Hiiro Kagami, the latter transformed into Kamen Rider Brave Fantasy Gamer Level 50. Sho would smile beneath the mask, as Emu would then summon the Gashacon Breaker, turning it to its Sword Mode and tossing the Key Slasher to Parad, as Hiiro would summon the Gashacon Sword. The three Riders joining the fray, they would continue to hack and slash at the horde of Masqueraders, telling Sho and Mikata to target the two main Masqueraders.

Sho would briefly wonder how they were knowledgeable of the Masqueraders, before deciding that it wasn't worth wondering over for the time being, as they would then charge in the direction of the two Masqueraders, beginning to hack and carve a way through the horde. However, it was within that moment that Commander Kage would take advantage of their situation, as he would then send out shadow constructs of swords and projectiles, aimed at the two Riders. Immediately, Sho and Mikata would parry the attacks with the Commander with the Kinen-Blade and An'nai-Blade respectively, before pulling out the Soldier and Chef Identity Cards, changing forms once more into Mimoto Soldier Identity and Koutou Chef Identity respectively.

Sho wouild then summon the Hyouarashi Rifle, while Mikata would then summon the Chef-Knife Orbital Bomber, sending out rows upon rows of knives that would continue to parry the Commander's attacks, clashing with the Boxer and Comedian Masqueraders respectively, As Sho would maintain a good distance from the Boxer Masquerader, raining bullet hell upon the monster, Mikata would also do the same, summoning the Bomber and using it to rain hail fire onto the Comedian Masquerader, while Commander Kage would then take advantage of the distraction, charging towards the two Riders and sending out more powerful blows. The sudden attack would take the two Riders by surprise, as the Boxer Masquerader would grab Sho by the legs, sending him flying into the skies.

The Boxer Masquerader then charged towards Mikata, as Sho would freeze in the air, pulling out the Pilot Identity Card and changing forms into Pilot Identity, taking off through the skies. And as he circled the two Masqueraders and commander, he would then pull out the Horobi and Jin Identity Cards, shoving them into the Kinen-Blade and Hyouarashi Rifle respectively, as Mikata would then pull out the Zero-One Identity Card, shoving it into the An'nai-Blade. Overlays of the Attache Arrow, Attache Shotgun and Progrise Hopper Blade would form, before turning into purple, pink and silver energy. Immediately, Sho and Mikata would then rain hail fire, before sending out powerful energy slashes in the direction of the Masqueraders.

However, Commander Kage would then summon more shadow constructs, summoning plenty of them to delay the attacks from hitting the three monsters, before destroying them for good, much to the chagrin of the two Riders. Kage would then take into the skies, as Commanders In'ei and Ankoku would simply observe the battle, taking more and more data from the fight between the two parties.

From another location, a young couple would walk through the roads of the campus, their faces filled with the mixture of a curious expression that implied they didn't know where they were, but also understanding, as if they knew where they were at the same time, paradoxically. Suddenly, they would then hear the sounds of a large explosion (Commander Kage clashing with Mimoto Pilot Identity), before they would then rush in the direction of the battlefield, looking almost confused and alarmed. And arriving on the scene, they would then see the horde of Masqueraders facing off against the five Riders, as Sora and Naomi would continue to observe the battle that was unfolding.

Much to the confusion of Naomi, the male figure would then rush onto the battlefield, before the female figure would attempt to signal to Naomi and Sora that the battlefield wasn't exactly the safest of places (something the latter two would vehemently refuse doing). However, Sora would then recognize the female figure, muttering her name, as she would wonder what they were doing here...

Sougo would run onto the battlefield, as Emu and Hiiro would immediately recognize the young wannabe king from their adventures together during the Another Ex-Aid crisis back in 2018 in another world... Sougo would then pull out the Ziku-Driver and the Zi-O and Ex-Aid Ridewatches, preparing his transformation. The world would almost warp and morph slightly around his feet as he transformed into Kamen Rider Zi-O Ex-AidArmor, wielding the Gashacon Breaker Breaker gauntlets, as he would then punch at the horde of Worker Masqueraders, rushing at the Elite set of Masqueraders.

As Sougo continued to fight, Tsukuyomi would then prepare to do the same, pulling out her variant of the Ziku-Driver, and the Tsukuyomi Ridewatch. Tsukuyomi would then wander what Naomi's and Sora's resolves were, and whether they would be enough to give a miracle to the two individuals. While Sora was almost unsure for a brief moment, Naomi would stand her ground, stating her wish to help Sho in his fight against the Masqueraders, much to the understanding of Tsukuyomi. However, she would then wonder if that resolve would be enough, restating her words from earlier, though she would then theorize that Naomi's resolve might be enough to bring forth a miracle...

As Sho and Mikata would be knocked aside by another of Commander Kage's attacks, their transformations would cancel as they crashed onto the ground, hacking out blood. The Influencer Identity Card would then fly out from Sho's pockets, before landing in Sougo's hands, the latter immediately toss it to Naomi and Tsukuyomi, much to the latter two's surprise. Sougo would cite something about a miracle coming through in the future, much to the confusion of the two de-transformed Riders. Commander Kage would then scoff, before charging towards Sho and Mikata, though Sougo would jump in, defending the two Riders. However, he would then comment that they looked rather similar to the two former Time Jackers of his world, Heure and Ora.

Sho would then wonder whether it was accidental or intentional, as he would wince from the attack, something Mikata would also do. And as Naomi would hold the Influencer Identity Card in her hands, she would look at it in confusion, trying to understand what Sougo had meant by a transformation, and why the random string of coincidences felt like they were leading to something much more bigger. Feeling something in the deepest part of her heart, she could feel a wish being granted, as a bright light would glow from a crack in the wall where Sho and Mikata had crashed in earlier.

Rushing towards it, Sora would attempt to grab Naomi and prevent her from doing it, before Tsukuyomi would grab Sora's hands, stating that Naomi was destined for something much greater than any of them could ever imagine. Reaching out for the light in front of her, the light would begin to glow even brighter as Naomi would grab it, Sora and Tsukuyomi forced to shield their eyes. And from the light, a wish that should have been impossible once upon a time was granted... the miracle of the hero of justice was granted to the social media influencer to pave the way for the future...

The Shimei IdenDriver was created...

Naomi would look at it in shock, as Tsukuyomi would only smile, transforming into Kamen Rider Tsukuyomi, waiting for Naomi's input in the matter. Naomi would get up, a resolve travelling down her spine, as she would then equip the Driver, feeling a surge of information travel through her entire body. She would harden her resolve in that moment, using the Influencer Identity Card and transforming into Kamen Rider... Shimei! As the two female Riders would join the flow, Naomi would then block the Boxer and Comedian Masqueraders' attacks, as the two monsters targeted Sho and Mikata.

The two Riders would widen in surprise, as Naomi would help them up. Sho would only softly smile, happy for the new miracle that had arrived... Helping them up, Naomi would smile underneath the mask, as Sho and Mikata would then pull out the Hero and Heroine Identity Cards, transforming once more into Mimoto and Koutou... Naomi would then walk to Sho's side, s the three Riders would then charge at the Boxer and Comedian Masqueraders, beginning to slowly dominate the tables against the two Masqueraders. Suddenly, Commander Kage would attempt to interfere, before Tsukuyomi would join Sougo, assisting him against the Commander.

And as the three Riders would continue to fight the horde that almost seemed to be never-ending, suddenly, a Rider would then materialize from the light, as Poppy Pipopapo would then materialize, transforming into Kamen Rider Poppy, much to the surprise of Emu and Parad. Poppy would then only cheekily grin, before she would then join them in their assault against the horde, as Emu would pull out the Knock Out Fighter 2 Gashat, cheekily smiling at Parad underneath the mask. Immediately, Emu would then insert the Gashat, changing forms into Ex-Aid and Para-DX Knock Out Fighter 2 Gamer Levels 39.

The four Ex-Aid Riders would continue to charge against the horde, as Naomi would then think of summoning a weapon of her own, much like Sho and Mikata. Immediately, a blade very similar to the Kinen-Blade and An'nai-Blade would then materialize in her hand, much to her surprise, though Sho would softly chuckle at it, seeing her surprise. Mikata would briefly smile under the mask, before the three of them would prepare their weapon finishers, taking out the Vulcan, Zero-One and Valkyrie Identity Cards, shoving them into their respective blades.

The finishers powering up, they would then charge towards the Masqueraders, hacking and slashing at them, destroying them and ejecting their hosts, as Sho and Mikata would grab the two hosts. On the other hand, the Ex-Aid Riders would then prepare their own finishers, firing powerful slashes at the remaining bits of Masquerader horde, also destroying the Elite Worker and Elite Engineer Masqueraders in the process. However, the two elite Masqueraders would then vaporize into a pool of blood, much to Poppy's horror, as she tried to figure out what had happened. On the Zi-O side of things, they would then take into the air, as Sougo changed back into his base form, preparing a Time Break and Time Jack on Commander Kage.

However, as the Commander would then summon multiple shadow constructs of shields, he would block the attacks, as he would then vanish into his own shadow, much to the confusion of Sougo and Tsukuyomi, who would land on the ground. As all of the Riders would de-transform, Sho and Mikata would begin to fall to the ground, as Naomi would manage to catch them in the nick of time, much to their delight. And regrouping with the rest of the Riders, they would then be grateful for their intervention, wondering what could have gone wrong if they didn't interfere. Immediately, however, multiple orbs of lights would form in Sougo's, Tsukuyomi's, Emu's, Hiiro's, Parad's and Poppy's pockets, much to everyone's confusion (with the exception of Sho and Naomi), as they would then manifest into... Identity Cards of their own.







As Sho would pocket the Zi-O and Ex-Aid Identity Cards, Mikata would pocket the Brave and Para-DX Identity Cards, while Naomi would pocket the Tsukuyomi and Poppy Identity Cards. Discussing whether it would be a good idea for them to stay, Emu and Hiiro would mention staying at the Fumei University hospital to Poppy, who would decide to also follow along with th two doctors and become a nurse, turning into her Asuna disguise, much to the surprise of Sho, Mikata, Sougo and Tsukuyomi, and to the amusement of Emu and Hiiro. Parad would then decide that he'd be lurking around in either Emu's body or somewhere in the hospital. Sougo and Tsukuyomi would decide that they would handle the areas in the city, as all of the Riders would decide to part their separate ways...

And as everyone headed out, Sho would begin to walk, before almost collapsing in Naomi's arms, much to the teasing of Mikata and Sora... and as they continued to head back to their dormitories for Sho to get some rest, in the homebase of the Masqueraders, Commander Kage would emerge from the entrance, as Commanders In'ei and Ankoku welcomed him back. Kage would almost enter a fit of rage, wondering why they didn't interfere in the fight between the two parties earlier, before Ankoku would then simply bring up that the fight has given much more data for their cause... as she would then pull up data of a second MasqueRizer...
