Synopsis

The destruction of the world is now upon us! Each Rider's world is beginning to merge together into our world! The Sky Wall from Kamen Rider Build appears, alongside the Futo Tower from Kamen Rider W! Not to mention all of these terrifying monsters starting to flood the city! Sougo knows he is at the center of this entire phenomenon. Sougo makes the decision to travel to the year 2068 to confront Ohma Zi-O one last time...

Plot

"The enemies of previous Kamen Riders have been unleashed onto this world. Swartz is hastily trying to destroy all the worlds. And there are two pages left before this world's demise..."
Black Woz[src]

Decade has declared that he will destroy Sougo's world, as this world is on a verge of destruction already. But before he could act, a horde of monsters of Heisei Kamen Riders are overwhelming them. In the end, Decade takes them away with his dimension wall.

Sougo, Geiz, Tsukuyomi, Woz and Tsukasa Kadoya are then resting in 95 DO while discussing their next plan. Tsukasa explains that there are many worlds, with Kamen Riders in each of them. The world are supposed to be separated from each other, but the existence of Sougo is causing the worlds to become one in this world. Swartz's real goal is to combine all worlds and then destroy the combined world to save his own. There are still three options available to Sougo: either he defeats Swartz, causing both he and Tsukuyomi to vanish; or let Swartz destroy the world; or finally, for Sougo to become Ohma Zi-O. Tsukasa goes on with his original plan to destroy this world, but he can't let innocent people die alongside the destruction. With those present, they discuss a plan to solve this conflict, with the world's fate at stake.

As Geiz, Tsukuyomi and Woz are headed out for their early part of the plan, Sougo is gazing at the clocks lining the wall of his house in melancholy. Tsukasa asks if Sougo is ready for this plan, as he won't survive in the end. But, Sougo answers calmly that all of this time, he had been ready for this. In fact, he feels that he was ready for this even before he was born. With that declaration, he goes to find Junichiro who is out shopping.

Tsukuyomi is helping civilians from the monsters while Woz looks in disinterest as he's supposed to protect her instead. Woz transforms to WozGinga Finally to help her, until Chaser arrives to capture Tsukuyomi. The Roidmude transforms to Mashin Chaser, and they fight into a standstill.

In the other place, Geiz approaches Swartz's hiding place and manages to lure him out. They transform to GeizRevive Goretsu and Another Decade respectively and begin their battle.

In the other place of the city, Junichiro is chased around by monsters until Zi-O arrives to help. Junichiro recognizes Sougo's voice inside the Zi-O suit, so Sougo undoes his transformation and declares himself as a Kamen Rider that has been fighting evil to protect people. Sougo says that he's on his way to a mission and asks for Junichiro's permission as he likely won't come back. Junichiro agrees, and Sougo goes to the year 2068 in his Time Mazine.

Sougo arrives in 2068, in the front of the monument of his first transformation as Zi-O. Nearby, a battle of Ohma Zi-O against the Resistance is happening with Ohma Zi-O defeating them easily. Sougo then approaches a wounded Tsukuyomi and declares that he will fight Ohma Zi-O alone, and the Resistance must back off. In the midst of her confusion, Sougo slips a Blank Ridewatch into her pocket. After that, Sougo transforms into Zi-O, surprising Tsukuyomi and a nearby Geiz. As Sougo confronts Ohma Zi-O, his future self is intrigued because he doesn't have any memory of coming to 2068 this early. Sougo says that the past is already changing, and rushes at his future self to attack.

Back in 2019, Geiz is struggling against Another Decade as he keep sending monsters after him. Decade then arrives to help, as their true purpose is to distract Swartz away from Tsukuyomi. Still, Another Decade is too strong, and he prepares his finisher to kill Geiz...

Back to Woz and Mashin Chaser's battle: Woz is knocked out from his transformation as he tries to sway Chaser by telling him his true history as a Kamen Rider. After struggling with the pain of his memories, Chaser still doesn't accept his past, and shoots the untransformed Woz...

In 2068, Sougo is overwhelmed by Ohma Zi-O. He tries to use the Trinity Ridewatch, saving Geiz and Woz from certain death to achieve Zi-OTrinity.

In 2019, Swartz's Dimension Kick misses Geiz due to him being transported to 2068 to fuse for Zio-OTrinity. Decade, now alone with Swartz, battles him as he feels like Decade vs Decade is more fitting and in his favor. However, while it's true that they are both Decade, Swartz has another ability that is beyond Decade's: the time stopping power that runs in Swart'z and Tsukuyomi's bloodline. But, Swartz is frozen in time instead as Daiki Kaito arrives, using the very same ability that he was given by Swartz. Decade and Diend then fight together against Another Decade.

In 2068, the fused Zi-OTrinity manages to fight Ohma Zi-O on the same level, even forcing the Demon King to his knees with the Time Break Burst Explosion. Ohma Zi-O is intrigued as to why his past self is stronger than him, and because he has no knowledge of ever having that form. Sougo answers that Ohma Zi-O is always alone while he has friends that are helping him. The Demon King of Time accepts this answer, but then he asks if Sougo is really their friend, why he conceals that he will die to protect said friends? Before Geiz and Woz could react to this however, Sougo undoes his transformation, thus sending Geiz and Woz back to 2019.

Sougo continues his talk with Ohma Zi-O. He says that Ohma Zi-O never truly intended to hurt him as they're the same person, thus their battle is meaningless. Ohma Zi-O agrees and drops his hostility. Sougo asks just what is Ohma Zi-O's true power, and the Demon King answers that his power is to destroy worlds and timelines, unlike Swartz that can only stop time. He explains to his past self that Swartz's plan was to manipulate Sougo into using his Ohma Zi-O power to destroy the world that has been merged with Another Decade's power. With that answer, Ohma Zi-O sends Sougo back to 2019.

In the background, Tsukuyomi and Geiz are watching their battle intently, and they know that they can travel to the past to prevent the rise of Ohma Zi-O. Meanwhile, Ohma Zi-O begins lending his power to Sougo, which enters Tsukuyomi's Blank Ridewatch.

Back in 2019, Geiz is transported while Another Decade is repelling Decade and Diend's vicious attacks. Decade then provokes Swartz by revealing that the one who will be saving this world is Tsukuyomi, causing him to bolt in anger.

Tsukuyomi is still on the run from Mashin Chaser while Woz catches up to them. Woz once again tells Chaser about his true history, halting his assault for a moment... until Another Decade arrives. The Another Rider commands to leave Tsukuyomi to him, but Mashin Chaser betrays him instead to protect her, because he believes he is a Kamen Rider. In response, he is killed instantly by Another Decade. As Geiz arrives to cradle the dying Chaser, he mentions he has a friend trying to help him, and that they are his friends too and always will be. With that, Chaser dies.

Seeing this, Swartz has had enough and attacks Tsukuyomi. Suddenly Sougo arrives from the future to tell Tsukuyomi about her Blank Ridewatch. Tsukuyomi takes it out from her pocket, and it transforms into the Tsukuyomi Ridewatch. Woz tosses her a Ziku-Driver, and Tsukuyomi transforms to Kamen Rider Tsukuyomi for the first time, bringing the battle to its climax.
