Main article: Shin Kamen Rider

Takeshi Hongo is kidnapped and transformed into Batta Augment-01 by an evil terrorist organization named SHOCKER. As Hongo escapes from SHOCKER with Ruriko Midorikawa, Kumo Augment-01 goes after him and his henchmen, masquerading as riot police, abduct Ruriko. However, Ruriko is protected by Hongo, who transforms into his Augment form and they escape to a hidden cabin. Dr. Hiroshi Midorikawa reverts Hongo to his civilian form at the hideout by expelling the excess prana life energy. Kumo Augment-01 arrives to kill Dr. Midorikawa and kidnaps his daughter. Hongo pursues and defeats Kumo Augment-01 with his Augment abilities and is dubbed "Kamen Rider".

To be continued

  • The TV special's closing screen is an homage to the end of each episode of the original TV series Kamen Rider where "To be continued" (つづく, Suzuku) would appear over the last scene of the episode, but sharing a similar style with Hideaki Anno's Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series where the last scene would suddenly switch to a pure black background.
