Kitazaki is whipped by Takuma's Orphnoch form before Kitazaki is executed by Arch Orphnoch, who consumes his body. Takumi comes to the realization that Teruo and the Orphnoch King are one and the same and transforms into Faiz in an attempt to kill him. He stops his punch at the last moment, Kiba then appears, transforms into Kaixa and they duel.
Final Battle against King Orphnoch
Later, Takumi was saved by the combined efforts of Keitaro, Mari, Kaido (who found out from Kiba and told the others), Mihara, and Rina before being confronted by Kiba again. Both he and Kiba then have one last battle that involved their powers as Faiz and Kaixa and Orphnochs. Takumi is able to claim victory as he spares Kiba's life because he said that he is "human". With a renewed sense of living, Kiba agrees to help Takumi and Mihara take down the King using the power of the three Gears. The fight doesn't go so well when the Kaixa Gear is destroyed. Before Kiba died, Faiz managed to land a hit on the King, defeating the King and killing Kiba.

Shuji is a complete amateur in terms of fighting. This disadvantage affected him to be the weakest fighter among the trio riders despite wearing the strongest Rider Gear to be ever made. During fights, he never composed and too rushed on landing his attack. Delta Gear's strength, however, was able to protect Shuji well enough to let him survive in any fight.
He is a relatively cowardly member of Ryusei School who would rather forget about Orphnochs and go back to living a normal life. But Shuji is not a person who prefer to betray friends and when the Delta Driver was in the Ryusei School's group, it become his ultimate chance to help his friend. It is possible that Shuji's pure heart to help friends despite his cowardice has rendered himself from taking the side effect of Delta Driver.

Behind the scenes
Shuji Mihara is portrayed by Atsushi Harada (原田 篤 Harada Atsushi). Harada previously portrayed Shou Tatsumi/GoGreen in Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive. As Kamen Rider Delta, his suit actor was Yoshifumi Oshikawa (押川 善文 Oshikawa Yoshifumi).
- Shuji Mihara is the second Faiz Rider that doesn't have an A.R world counterpart.
- It is theorized that unlike the Faiz and Kaixa equipment, the Delta Gear can be worn and used by anybody, regardless of whether or not they are an Orphenoch or implanted with Orphenoch DNA. However, due to the fact that Delta was never seen being used by a normal Human, this has never been confirmed.
- The Delta Driver bears a striking resemblance to the Access Lock S from Tokusou Exceedraft. They are both black-and-silver handle-like transformation devices, with a spring-loaded part and an antenna.
- In the episode 11 of Kamen Rider Decade, the Delta Driver appears with the Smart Buckle and Psyga Driver in the ruins of Smart Brain High School.
