After saving a wedding and fighting a pair of Worm, TheBee then asks Kabuto about joining them and ZECT, but Kabuto refuses, resulting in a showdown between the Riders.
Due to being upstaged by Tendou, Yaguruma loses his cool and begins trying to defeat Kabuto once and for all. After seemingly destroying the Zect Belt, Hiyori remembers more about her past and the boy that had a rider belt.
Yaguruma discovers that Tendou is alive and well, and so is the Zect Belt. Furious, he and Tendou fight once again, but this time, Yaguruma goes insane and injures his fellow comrades in the process. Ideals lost, the TheBee Zecter leaves him for Kagami Arata.

A new man by the name of Tsurugi Kamishiro appears, and he is seemingly as arrogant as Tendou. After competing with Tendou in all manners of sports, he meets Tendou at the top of the roof, ready to fight a Worm. It is then shown that he is Kamen Rider Sasword.
Tsurugi becomes the next target of the Phantom Thief Shadow, who's actual goal is to lure the Worm that only targets criminals out.
