This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider Wizard.

The Deciding Match of the Contest (決戦のコンクール Kessen no Konkūru) is the fifth episode of Kamen Rider Wizard.


Haruto must find a way to defeat Caitsith before he converts Takagi while also helping Koyomi discover the truth of her origins.


Taking advantage of Haruto's sudden loss of mana during battle, Caitsith manages to escape. Haruto confronts Takagi as he realizes the pianist wanted the Phantom to cripple him and take him out of the piano competition. Koyomi blames herself for Haruto's loss as he had used all of his remaining mana to reanimate her. As she walks away, Haruto follows her, but he suddenly passes out.

Back at the Antique Shop Omokagedo, as Koyomi watches over Haruto, Wajima explains to Rinko and Shunpei that Koyomi is actually a Gate whose body was somehow preserved after her Phantom was manifested. As the Phantom had taken her life and memories, she needs a regular supply of mana from Haruto in order to survive. When Haruto wakes up, he explains to Koyomi that even a negative person such as Takagi needs hope. Later that night, Koyomi, Rinko and Shunpei pay Takagi a visit. Koyomi argues with Takagi over his fear of facing the present and moving on to the future, assuring him that Haruto will be there to protect him.

The next day, as Takagi performs at the competition, Caitsith unleashes an army of Ghouls and prepares to crash the event, but is stopped by Kamen Rider Wizard, who uses the Copy Magic Ring to duplicate himself and destroy the Ghouls before finishing off the Phantom with the Hurricane Style's Slash Strike. After the competiton, Takagi tells Haruto that he lost once again, but he has decided to move on by moving overseas and starting over with his career
