Continuity and Placement

Plot

The plot goes around a time loop created by the Shocker that resets whenever someone dies, but whenever the loop resets Shocker itself somehow grows stronger and stronger. Thus, it is up to the Riders to decide whether to keep on fighting a useless battle... Or end the loops for good by sacrificing one of their own.

Notes

YongoShocker
  • The Kamen Riders that assist Rider 4 are all evil Riders (in Sasword's case, he is evil through his monster form) from their respective series. Coincidentally or not, their motifs are shared by four monsters from the original Kamen Rider series. This follows on from the appearance of Leangle as a Shocker member in Super Hero Taisen GP, corresponding with the very first monster, Spider Man.
  • Additionally, of the four Riders above, Ouja is the only one to not have been a monster at any point, though he does have one in his control in the form of Venosnaker (and later Evildiver and Metalgelas and the hybrid Genocider)
  • This miniseries is the only spin-off material attached to Drive to not feature the Roidmudes in any capacity.
