Main Timeline

Trying to rescue his friends from Gelshocker, Takeshi raids in and tried to transform but frozen by Leechameleon. As one of them about to be modified into a Gelshocker Monster, Kamen Rider 2 returns and defeats the Gelshocker troops, rescuing the Rider Squad members and Hongo himself. They proceed to capture Leechameleon and ask him about General Black's location, but he refuses to speak. General Black's voice through the speakers tells them to bring Leechameleon to him and so the Double Riders follow their only lead, taking Leechameleon to the arranged place, only to see themselves surrounded by revived Gelshocker monsters. General Black's voice comes from Leechameleon himself, who leads them to that trap and reveals itself to be General Black himself. However, to his surprise, the two Riders were already expecting that. Hongo and Hayato go after General Black, while Taki tells them that he'll handle the monsters, which escape in a truck. Leechameleon can't keep up with the Riders and attempts to escape by using his invisibility. However, Riders 1 and 2 sense his presence and hit him with a double chop, which finishes off the Gelshocker commander. Taki catches up with the monsters, just to be captured. Using a digital voice mimicking Taki's, the Shocker Leader sends Riders 1 and 2 towards Gelshocker's headquarters. They're surrounded by the Gelshocker monster troops but managed to destroy all of them once again. Afterward, the Kamen Rider Kid Corps members are used by the Shocker Leader as hostages, and the Riders run through a minefield to reach them. The Riders seemingly fall, only to surprise the Shocker Leader by appearing in his command room. The Shocker Leader was covered by a mantle, and Rider 2 grabs it, only to reveal a head full of snakes. Promising to send them to hell for destroying Gelshocker, the Riders are hit by powerful waves of energy, but managed to run through them and grab the Shocker Leader's head, and pulling the snakes of his head, only to reveal a plaid featureless cyclops underneath. The Shocker Leader tells them that this is the end of Gelshocker, and they'll all die together, before falling on the ground just as the explosions start. Hayato notices the Shocker Leader's supposedly real form fallen on the ground and attempts to approach it, but when they're about to do that the explosions just increase and the entire underground headquarters, and even the lake above it, explode.

With Gelshocker destroyed, Taki's mission is complete, and he returns to the USA. Hongo and the others watch his plane's departure, believing for a moment that peace has returned and the days of fighting finally have ended.

Altered Timeline

Main article: Who Can Stop the Hoax Smile?

While Riders 1 and 2 were on their way back home after defeating the Shocker Leader, suddenly a mysterious car blocks their path. A figure approached and declared himself as Kamen Rider 3, created to eliminate Kamen Riders 1 and 2. He easily overpowered and killed them in an explosion. Due to his existence, the timeline was now greatly altered, with Shocker having achieved total world domination and the majority of succeeding Kamen Riders brainwashed to serve them as their loyal soldiers.

Note: This alteration to the events of the finale is undone at the climax of Super Hero Taisen GP by the destruction of Shocker's History Modifying Machine.
