Important things that happened

  • Misaki is ordered to meet the qualified candidate, but he is found dead. A Worm mimics the candidate to go after Tendou.
  • Tendou already knows how to use Kabuto's full potential because he has owned the belt long enough to discover its secrets.
    • In battle, Tendou doesn't use the Rider Form because he wants to test his limits in the Masked Form.
  • ZECT learns Kabuto is active. The organization gives the orders to hunt him down because they do not allow a non-ZECT member to be a Rider.

Songs Used


  • When Tendou catches the Kabuto Zecter, he phrases it as "Catching the future." In the Hyper Battle DVD, he tells Kagami to do the same.
  • Hiyori likes the phrase: It'll be okay. I'm by your side.
    • When her drawings come to life, it resembles the scene from the end of the Kabuto movie.
  • Tendou keeps the Kabuto Extender permanently, replacing the motorbike he personally owned in the previous episode.
    • Misaki rides the Kabuto Extender at the beginning when she's taking the belt to the new Rider candidate from HQ.
  • This is the first time the theme FULL FORCE plays.
