This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider Den-O.

Run Taros! (走れタロス! Hashire Tarosu!) is the twelfth episode of Kamen Rider Den-O.


After discovering the Imagin contract holder is Kasumi's father, Ryotaro tries to discover why as Kintaros keeps trying to manage resolving the crisis in his own stubborn ways!


Kintaros reveals that his reason for letting the Ivy Imagin escape is to find out what Kensaku had wished for. The next day, the Ivy Imagin once again attacks Kasumi while she is heading to the airport to model for the Paris Collection.

Once the Ivy Imagin stops attacking, Kintaros throws the empty van that Kasumi and her agent were riding in into the river so she will be able to see her father. However, this fulfills the Ivy Imagin's contract with Kensaku, allowing him to go back in time to the day that Kensaku disowned and kicked Kasumi out of the house.

When Kintaros tries to make the father and daughter make up in the past prior to actually fighting the Ivy Imagin, he endangers the flow of time as a result and is to be banished off the DenLiner. However, Kintaros' act of informing Kasumi of her father's true feelings alter time and created a time paradox, so that Kasumi and Kensaku are able to reconcile prior to Kasumi's meeting with Ryotaro and Kensaku's meeting with the Imagin.

This time paradox negates Kintaros' banishment from the DenLiner, for the cause of the banishment never existed.
