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

Farewell, Beat Riders (さらばビートライダーズ Saraba Bīto Raidāzu) is the eighteenth episode of Kamen Rider Gaim. It features the debut of Zack as Kamen Rider Knuckle.


Mai tries to host a dance contest to bring everyone's morale up, but none of the teams will participate. Mai tries to get Kouta to convince Team Baron to join, but he is not sure that he will dance either. It is only the appearance of Oren who changes the minds of the others, as he turns their friendly dance competition into an outright fight.


The members of Team Gaim invite the members of other teams to perform an All Teams Dance Event in order to regain the public trust. However, all other teams refuse to participate given their hatred towards Team Baron, who do not attend the meeting. Mai then attempts to convince Kaito to join as well but fails to do so. After Mai leaves, Kaito decides to quit Team Baron as well, claiming that he has other objectives in mind, presenting his fellow dancer Zack with a Sengoku Driver before leaving. Kouta then confronts Kaito and learns that he did that to have his teammates join the event as well. Meanwhile, Oren learns about the event from Jonouchi and starts making plans against it. Back at the Yggdrasill Corporation, Ryoma analyzes the results of Marika's fight with Gaim and decides to test his new invention as soon as possible. On the day of the event, only Teams Gaim and Baron appear and few spectators gather, thanks to Oren's campaign against it, but they decide to keep dancing nevertheless. This prompts Oren to sortie a group of Inves summoned by Jonouchi at them. Kouta confronts Oren with Zack who becomes the new Armored Rider Knuckle Kurumi Arms. As news about the event is streamed live by DJ Sagara, all the remaining teams decide to join as well. When discovered by his teammates, Jonouchi is dragged to dance with them, too. Baron arrives to help Knuckle against the Inves while Gaim transforms into Jimber Lemon Arms to fight Bravo. The event becomes a success; the Inves are destroyed, Gaim defeats Bravo, and the Beat Riders' public reputation is restored. However, Kouta is later approached by one of the New Generation Riders who challenges him to a duel.


Guest cast


KR Knuckle Is Here

First appearance of Kamen Rider Knuckle


  • Although Zack's Sengoku Driver is the silver-strap mass produced version, it glows yellow like the other prototype Drivers when it materializes around Zack's waist.
  • When Baron is shown to activate his Sengoku Driver Cutting Blade Function once while charging at the Seiryu Inves with Knuckle, it is assumed he pressed it down three times off screen due to the fact that "Banana Sparking!" is heard in the background after "Kurumi Sparking!".
