Kamen Rider vs. Shocker (仮面ライダーVSショッカー Kamen Raidā tai Shokkā) is the second movie based on the original Kamen Rider series. It is the first film not to be an adaptation of an episode, but rather have its own storyline.
Professor Daidōji (大道寺博士 Daidōji Hakase) has developed a gravity machine called the GX Device. Unfortunately, Shocker wants it; so they attack the professor and destroy his laboratory, but come home empty-handed. Shocker's agents find out that the plans for the GX Device are with Daidōji's daughter, who is celebrating her birthday. Now the Kamen Riders, along with FBI agent Kazuya Taki, must protect Daidōji's daughter and prevent Shocker from obtaining the plans.
