This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider Gaim.

Beat Riders' Great Gathering (ビートライダーズ大結集 Bīto Raidāzu Dai Kesshū) is the thirty-third episode of Kamen Rider Gaim.


The Inves are invading, Kouta's sister takes shelter, and Kouta patrols with the others. Trying to get the Golden Fruit, Ryoma reveals Project Ark to the world, which erupts into chaos. Then, without help from the Japanese government or Yggdrasill, Kouta and the other Riders lend a hand to the people left behind.


Kouta looks for Akira at their apartment but she has already left to look for shelter. On the way, she finds a lost child and takes him with her to safety when a Lion Inves attacks. Meanwhile, the main leaders of the Yggdrasill Corporation argue between themselves about the latest developments until Ryoma contacts them. When the leaders refuse to comply with his plan to join forces in order to claim the Forbidden Fruit, Ryoma leaks to the public the truth about Project Ark, causing worldwide commotion. At Team Gaim's base, Kouta and the other Armored Riders discuss the situation looking for a solution, but Yoko explains that the JSDF have instructions to keep the Inves confined into Zawame City, and not to enter the town to confront them.

The Riders then decide to split up and fight the Inves themselves, and Yoko distributes some communication devices to keep themselves in touch before they leave. At the Yggdrasill Tower, Redyue expresses its intent to have Mitsuzane rule over mankind as its proxy as the Over Lord only wants to enjoy the powers of the Forbidden Fruit, but Mitsuzane reminds it that Kouta is still a liability and Redyue instructs its subordinate Dyudyuonshu to assist him. Taking a break from the battle against the Inves, Kouta and Mai pay a visit to Drupers, which is still open despite the current situation, where Bando makes some food for them. During the meal, Kouta claims that he is not hungry due to the Sengoku Driver and he claims that the food tastes weird. Before he can explain further, Yoko calls him seeking assistance.

Once Kouta meets her, she asks him what he intends to do should he claim the Forbidden Fruit and warns him that to do so he must defeat all others who are fighting to obtain it, including Kaito. The two are then attacked by Dyudyuonshu and transform into Marika and Gaim Jimber Lemon Arms to confront it. Marika is defeated and Gaim pursues the Over Lord, transforming into Kachidoki Arms, only to be ambushed by Zangetsu Shin. Still confused as to why Takatora is attacking him, Gaim only defends himself against Zangetsu Shin without fighting back until Bravo joins the fight and realizes that the Zangetsu Shin he is fighting is not Takatora at all.

Now cleared of all doubts, Gaim transforms into Kiwami Arms and turns the tides of the battle, destroying Dyudyuonshu with an Ichigo Power charged blast from the DJ Gun, which Zangetsu Shin avoids by using Dyudyuonshu as a shield. Exhausted after running away, Mitsuzane claims that no matter how much stronger Kouta may become, he will eventually take advantage of his naïveté to defeat him for good.

  • to be added


Kiwami dual Kagematsu

Gaim Kiwami Arms dual wielding the original Kagematsu and upgraded Kagematsu Shin


KCDK Unlocked in Driver

Unlocked Kachidoki Lockseed

  • When Gaim turns the Kiwami Lockseed to summon the Daidaimaru and Musou Saber, the Kachidoki Lockseed is shown to be unlocked.
  • In Chinese culture, 呉島 should be pronounced Wú Dǎo instead of Kureshima.
    • It is possible that the Chinese leader of Yggdrasill pronounced it as Kureshima in order to avoid confusion amongst Japanese viewers.


Current Zangetsu Shin lockseed

New Generation Rider Zangetsu Shin's Lockseed Collection: 5

  • Closing Screen Lockseed Collection:
  • This episode begins the Forbidden Fruit Saga, the fifth and final story arc of the series.
  • This is the first closing screen where Mitsuzane is represented by the Zangetsu Shin background rather than Ryugen's as he usually is. However, the closing screen also includes his Ryugen Lockseeds as well.
  • First appearance of the Kagematsu Shin, the Kurokage Shin version of the Kagematsu. It is almost hard to see it once and mistake it for the normal Kagematsu though. This might be an indication that Kurokage Shin won't be movie exclusive or, at the very least, his powers exist in the main universe.
  • This is the first episode to have multiple languages (English, Chinese, French, and Japanese) since a few episodes of Kamen Rider 555 that featured Mr. J.
    • Even when the Yggdrasill executives are speaking in different languages, they seem to understand each other, including Japanese.
  • This is the first time Gaim changes from Jimber Lemon Arms to Kachidoki Arms.
  • This episode marks the first time a Rider uses two Sonic Arrows at once. Technically, a Rider cannot be equipped with two Sonic Arrows. However, as Kiwami Arms, Gaim is not equipped with them, meaning he can summon as many as he wants.
  • Gaku Sano's (Kouta Kazuraba) 22nd birthday and KANON's (Chucky) 17th birthday, falling on April 3rd and April 10th, 2014 respectively, were celebrated during the filming of this episode. [1]
  • While Kouta and Mai enjoying the curry rice at Drupers, he complained to Bandou that his curry rice is 'tasteless'.
    • This indicates the early stage of Kouta's assimilation into Overlords' power, similar to how Eiji Hino loses his sense of taste during his early stage of becoming Eiji Greeed back in Kamen Rider OOO
  • In the Blu-ray version of this episode, the map of Zawame has been altered in order to avoid a potential lawsuit from DC Comics or Warner Bros. due to its resemblance to Gotham City.
