Synopsis

The battle between Aruto Hiden and Horobi sparks a war between humanity and Humagears! Nevertheless, the conclusion that was reached resulted in Aruto having no choice but to directly fight against Horobi! Horobi, who has now also obtained the power of the Ark, transforms into a new Rider in order to defeat Aruto! This new Rider is now on the same level as Ark-One himself!

Plot

Continuing from the previous episode, Aruto/Ark-One and Horobi/Ark Scorpion clash, commencing the final battle. Azu, within the Ark, watches over the battle. Meanwhile in the street, Magias push humans but they want to calm them down, as two women left, a Humagear-type woman corrupts, and Azu, in Ark's satellite area, sees the unknown Progrisekeys.

Both Ark-One and Horobi slash using Attache Calibur, which fades. Horobi then uses a Thousand Jacker to perform the Flaming Tiger version of the Jacking Break. Ark-One stopped Horobi's attack using a Progrise Hopper Blade, which performs Final Strash, but was avoided by Horobi. He uses Attache Arrow to perform Kaban Shoot, Ark-One uses Attache Calibur, and Horobi tells Ark-One he destroyed Jin last week and malice born from selfishness as Attache Arrow shoots Ark-One. Isamu watches the final battle inside Thouser Department but Yua, working on Gai's computer, searches Jin, Gai tells her that should 1000% sufficent, and the Humagears are "defined by their consciousness". In HIDEN Intelligence HQ, the corrupted cleaner wants to evacuate Sanzo, who did not lose his faith and believes in his President and employees. As the riders crash a ground into a hole, Ark-One throws Attache Calibur while Horobi slashes Ark-One's weak armor, Isamu watched as the system starts up, Azu watches the riders fighting. Suddenly, the second-revived Jin comes to her, "This isn't the conclusion Ark intended." he told her but it's Aruto's conclusion. Yua just heard Jin's voice and Horobi, performing Hatred Impact, finishes Ark-One, who transformed back into Aruto. "This is...fine." Aruto exclaimed, his Ark life ends, and Jin exclaimed, "it's all up to him". He always believes in the Humagears...

Horobi detransforms himself, while Aruto knows during his flashback. In the flashback, Soreo, Aruto's father, tells that "his fury is burning inside him", but he became stronger after he found the power of rider. Soreo gives a Zero-One Driver to Aruto before he vanishes, and the Zero-Two Driver creates a Zero-One Driver, giving it to him, he puts his driver, "Anyone would feel hurt... from the loss of their family!" Aruto said. Horobi told their family that he punches Aruto, Izu's ribbon falling on the ground but he gives it, "That rage, and that anguish... You really understand how that feels! Horobi!" He shouted that he lost his family, Horobi told that Jin is gone, but Horobi starts to cry, and he hated Aruto. He knows it's his heart, that Rising Hopper Progrisekey turns into Realize Ver., Horobi transforms into Ark Scorpion for the last time, while Aruto, not giving up, transforms into Zero-One Realizing Hopper, Jin watches Zero-One's transformation before he left, Izu's spirit appears & encourages Aruto, and "There's only one person who can stop you... and that's me!" he shouted. Zero-One and Horobi perform Realizing/Extinction Impact, he extends five Acid Analyzes from his back and uses them to attack Zero-One, who dodged Horobi's attack and reaches him, and performs a side kick, then coils Acid Analyzes to perform a side kick, Zero-One then leaps forward to Horobi again and delivers an uppercut, followed by an upward kick that launches him high into the air. Energy grasshopper feet briefly form around Zero-One's two feet before he leaps and knees Horobi in midair. Still in the air, Zero-One performs a series of high-speed kicks that leave afterimages of himself. He then leaps to different points in the air and performs more kicks, ricocheting Horobi between them, before delivering a downward kick that sends him back to the ground. Finally, Zero-One performs a final kick with an energy constructed of a robotic grasshopper extending from his right foot and Zea's symbol behind him when he strikes Horobi. The Zetsumetsu Driver and Ark Scorpion Progrisekey breaks and the two are now out of their forms. Horobi questions Aruto on why he didn't just destroy him in which Aruto replies with there is no need to anymore. As Horobi begins crying, Aruto looks up into the blue sky, clenching Izu's bow.

In the morning after, HIDEN Intelligence holds a press conference that reveals new plans to build another satellite. Raiden watches the news from a television screen at the Space Development Center's hallway. Now back inside of Hiden's office, Aruto presses Izu's Humagear Progrisekey, which says "Cannot read.", he gives a sigh and walks over to a window to look out at the view. He then says, "Just for you, I'll take off toward our dream." In the storage room now labeled as the Thouser Department, there sits a rebuilt Thousandriver, Amazing Caucasus Progrisekey, and Awaking Arsino Zetsumerisekey on the table next to Gai. Gai begins talking to Thouser and his four other dogs talking about his plans for the future under the Thouser Department. At A.I.M.S., Yua introduces, Naki, as the newest A.I.M.S. technical adviser to her other teammates. Outside, Fuwa helps a woman in a car crash. Utilizing only his strength, he rips the car door out prompting her to ask who he is. Fuwa replies that he is a Kamen Rider who protects the peace of this city. Jin talks to a newly renovated Horobi as he stares out over the city saying, "MetsubouJinrai.net is reborn". Jin hugs Horobi and calls him dad which makes Horobi lets slip a rare smile. At night, Azu meets a mysterious man, telling him that Ark will rise again. She gives him a Zero-One Driver and the Eden Zetsumerisekey. Once, the Zetsumireskey opens, Azu's costume changes from Izu's normal attire into a black and red veiled costume. The man then inserts the Zetsumerisekey into the driver and becomes Kamen Rider Eden. Inside the secret lab in Hiden's office; Aruto, Shesta, Jun and Sanzo watch as Aruto removes a covering, revealing a restored Izu. Aruto then uses his Hiden Risephone to complete her activation. While this current version of Izu does not remember any that the past Izu did after her destruction, Aruto uses his Zero-One Driver to meets Izu in newly rebuilt Zea simulation to help begin the restoration process. He starts by teaching her how to do his signature pose and catchphrase as the shot fades out with the closing of the Realizing Hopper Progrise Key.

  • The episode's title is a callback to the title of episode 15.
  • This is the first time since Gaim's finale to not contain any links to the next series.
  • This is the second series finale to end in a cliffhanger that will resolve in a movie, after Decade's final episode, which led into Movie War 2010, though Zero-One's ending was more conclusive than Decade's total cliffhanger ending.
    • Ex-Aid's finale does not count as a cliffhanger ending due to the episode not tying directly to a film, taking place after the TV show ending, but a different episode serving as the movie's tie-in.
  • The name of this episode is a reference to the show's theme song REAL×EYEZ. One line in the chorus of the song goes "You wanna REAL×EYEZ. Egaita mirai-zu", which this episode references.
    • Zero One Realizing Hopper is also a reference to the show's theme song.
  • This is the first time since Kamen Rider Blade's finale where the final villain of the series survives the final battle.
    • This does not count Ex-Aid's, Build's, and Zi-O's finales whereas their final villains were resurrected post-series.
    • Similarly, Horobi and Hajime Aikawa were given a second chance in life, being fully redeemed, and were allowed to blend in with human society.
  • Like Kamen Rider Kuuga as the first Kamen Rider of the Heisei Era, both the titular Rider and their own final vilain have their belts destroyed : N-Daguva-Zeba's belt being destroyed by Yusuke Godai while Arcle is destroyed soon after; Horobi destroying Aruto Hiden's Ark Driver while his Zetsumetsu Driver is destroyed soon after.
    • The only difference is that the battle between Horobi and Aruto finished when the latter destroyed the Zetsumetsu Driver, while Yusuke and Daguva continued to fight to the death even in their human form.
