Chapter 1: A 15 Year Peace Shattered

The world was once imprisoned by a sinister organization that dealt with total dominance by any means. Its name struck fear into the heart of society itself; for those who rebelled against this power were eliminated. As for those who surrendered, they'd offer their lands in exchange for the safety of those they loved and sparing their own lives in the process. This sinister force went by one name: Black Ghost. However, in the midst of this madness arose nine individuals that were subjected into being humanity's greatest threat until a telepathic message reached out to them to save the world thus being humanity's only hope. With the help of Dr. Gillmore and his infant 'son' Ivan, they were able to halt and destroy the Black Ghost's ambitions of world domination restoring peace and freedom to the world.
The people referred to them by one name: Cyborg 009.
Time has passed since that dark day, the governments of Earth have grown stable, economy has become more prosperous and society has been stronger than ever. However this period was disturbed when the United World Council received an ultimatum from an unknown assailant.

"Greetings from the underground, I am the Spectre gracing your presence on simple terms."

The screen switched over to a video model of the globe with small targets of a cackling skull marking the six continents of the world as the ghastly figure continue.

"On behalf of this presentation, I claim these lands in the name of Black Ghost!"

The beautiful blue sky suddenly was plunged into perpetual darkness, squadrons of attack drones and robots made short work of the defense forces, not even the military couldn't stop them. It wasn't long until the governments of the world surrendered and a new reign of terror revived.

Chapter 2: A World under Siege

~Gillmore Lab~

Dr. Gillmore investigated the clip in its entirety hoping to pinpoint the location of where this Spectre might be. The real mystery lied in where the broadcast was. Their only clue was that it had something to do with underground and there was little to no results in the search.

"Doctor? Maybe I can assist you?"
"Ah Ivan..perhaps you can. See if you can contact Joe and the others."
Ivan Wisky has been known to be the most powerful telepath since birth. Before the change, he was an infant with silver hair and unseen eyes. Since then, his powers have grown stronger while he grew up. He underwent his training right after the age of 3. Thus he was given his codename: 001, since he was the first of the four production models produced fifteen years ago. To safely conceal his telepathic powers, he learned to imitate any person's voice to disguise his own. The time has finally come once again to bring back the 00 team.



~America~

No word about the recent Black Ghost outbreak has hit America just yet. Although the press and even the President are laying low since the world was overrun by the Black Ghost and as a safety precaution to prevent further terrorist attacks; any information would have to be reported by document. Somewhere in Seattle, an air show was taking place, but it wasn't just any ordinary air show. Airplanes were a thing of the past, they were still used for travel, but for air shows they used jet packs. Once they were considered dangerous and untested for use since the days of WWII. That all changed when one such man revolutionized free flight forever: his name is Jet Link. Formerly, he was a leader of a notorious gang and by given a second chance, he was chosen to be more than just a man. He was known as "the Eagle" to his comrades due to his bird-like nose. When he joined the 00 team, his life was changed forever. His physical enhancements lied in his legs. Having a built-in prototype of the Time Accelerator makes it possible to fly at the speed of light and go faster in a second whereas when he sees it, it becomes extremely slow. Times have changed since then, after starting his own business namely called "Link Eagle Industries", he had no problems getting off the ground. On this day, while having a meeting with the board of directors, he heard the voice of Dr. Gillmore speaking out to him. Abruptly excusing himself, Jet drove back to his estate gathering any information in the process.

"Ah damn, so much for vacation.."

After exhaling a short sigh, he pulled out his old uniform holstering his ray gun casting his gaze to the sky with a smirk. Off he went flying towards Gillmore Lab.


~France~

After graduating from a prestigious college, a young blond girl went on to do what she always wanted to do: dancing and modeling. Many a man has fallen for her, but there is but one man she truly feels she belongs with, and still she thinks of him everyday. She goes by the name Francoise Arnoul. She has had reoccurring nightmares of that dark day when Sputnik crashed and supposedly the Black Ghost itself. The day she saw 002 and 009 crash into Earth's atmosphere in a ball of flames. She was one of the many unfortunate candidates chosen by Black Ghost to be converted to being a cyborg. As being the only female on the team, she could see and hear anything from a great distance allowing a powerful and tactical advantage in dealing with their creator. Although it bothers her emotionally, she has chose to make it easy as possible on herself to make her name be known in another way. By creating her own life of clothes, she worked for a top modeling agency as a fashion designer which to this day, is top of its class thanks to her. She anticipated Gillmore's message about Black Ghost after returning home in her uniform, she was soon teleported to Gillmore Lab.


~Germany~

Somewhere on the outskirts of East Berlin lied an unmarked headstone laying under a tree. It was here that a silver haired, blue eyed man often visited this place when he was very young. When there was a simpler time for the youth to dream big, create families and only want to see a better world. For this man, his dream was brutally taken away from him. The day his family was killed before his eyes during their escape, and he remained as the subject for the 00 Project that Black Ghost ran. Being made of machine guns, rocket launchers and a built-in laser knife, he was made into a living weapon of mass destruction. On that day, the man inside him died and the being known as 004 was born. The question here is why did he come back here? Only he knew the answer.. Taking out his laser knife, he etched onto the stone:

`Rest in Peace Albert Heinrich. Lest we not forget you..`

"The man known as Albert Heinrich has been avenged, now there is only 004."

He walked away from the grave knowing his closure was fulfilled; now he knew of the black cloud shrouding over West Berlin and departed for Gillmore Lab. He shed one last tear for the man he once was before vanishing into the morning mist.

~Mexico~

Once home to a proud people from times past, this civilization transformed into bustling businesses for merchants and farmers. Traveling down an old dirt road, a giant of a man found himself in the midst of a small village. He felt lead to arrive in front of a small hut where he met an ancient descendant of his. He was an old sage around the age of 100 that had experienced everything that ever happened in this world; the people of this land called him 'G' as he was the leader of his people.

"So you have come giant one. You've came to find out your origin."
"Yes.."
"What is your given name..?"
"It is..Geronimo Junior."


The old man's eyes lifted up to him with tears of joy escaping as he opened his arms embracing him as father and son were reunited after all this time. An ill wind entered the town as their reunion was cut short as G Junior looked up noticing the scent of evil in the air.

"Father, I'm sorry.."
"Don't son, you have a duty to perform. Bring order back to nature.."


Heeding to his father's wishes, he left the village with his head up high as he marched onwards to Gillmore Lab. 005 was reborn again..


~China~

Somewhere in the depths of this society lies an unstoppable chain of Chinese restaurants that have grown strong since China has won its independence from Black Ghost. It became the lifeblood of this community all thanks to one portly student turned full-fledged cook whose style of cooking became a gift to this side of the world. Strangely enough, Black Ghost caught hold of him once and installed a flame thrower in his system. With his ability to breathe fire, he can melt the hardest of all metals with the greatest of ease. This candidate's name is Chang Chang-ko. 006 was called back to action by way of a strange order and it was coded "To serve nine different nations" and with that, his apron was left in floating on the floor as he left his restaurant in haste.

~United Kingdom~

The once failed method actor known as Great Britain had his life changed since the world was lifted from Black Ghost's grip. His imitations of famous actors and singers have been well-renown far and wide across Wales and London. His success has changed all for the better...or so he thought. The downside of it was he only wishes his friends were there to see his performances. While money kept pouring in from every part of England, his rising success became boring and listless. Formerly known as 007, by pressing his navel, he is able to shape shift into various characters caused confusion and comedic madness among the ranks of Black Ghost. While hearing more of his latest performance, he sighed cutting it off glancing over a portrait of the 00 team.

"Will success spoil Great Britain? Damn Skippy it has.."

As he reclined on his couch, the television suddenly turned itself back on as a familiar voice reached his ears.

"The world is in peril again. Black Ghost has returned and we need your help."

The television suddenly cut itself off once again as he went over to his dressing room throwing on his old uniform and approached the mirror with a grin striking a pose with his gun.

"Name's Britain…Great Britain. I like my martini shaken, not stirred."

With a touch of his navel, he morphed himself into a bird taking flight to Gillmore Lab.

~Africa~

After suffering from decades of oppression and apartheid, Blacks, Whites and Afrikaans have come together after the fall of Black Ghost, they formed a democratic government made of the tribal leaders of each region. They chose an unlikely candidate for the people as their representative. A seasoned veteran of countless wars and a master of aquatic combat. He goes by one name: Pyunma. Formerly an escaped slave, he fought for the freedom of his people and his own when he last tangled with Black Ghost. He continues to fight this dark power for a greater goal: the future of his own family. Agreeing to fight for his country, he decides to pay Dr. Gillmore a visit to help in the investigation.

~Japan~

In an unmarked territory in Tokyo, there once stood an old church. The priest that once lived here was a kind old man that took in orphans, runaways and even abandoned children to have a home of their own. Sadly the old priest died and the children he taken care of over the years has grown. Among this small group was a troubled child that was known for his thievery, when he grew up...he was framed for accidentally killing a man and was chosen as the last candidate for Project 00. Through his hardships, he soon was given to option to escape and fight back the creator that made them: Black Ghost. Now care-taking after a new generation of children, this young man has taken up arms again to fight for them. This young man is Joe Shimomura.

If Black Ghost's revival to enslave the world was going to come true then no one would ever see another blue sky again. The call to help has brought them out of retirement. The free world now hangs in the balance, and only one force can stop Black Ghost again: Cyborg 009.

Chapter 3: The Return of the Cyborg Senshi


Dr. Gillmore sat in front of the monitor replaying the ultimatum made by the Spectre rubbing his chin fervently. 001 heard a thin sound as the image of 003 materialized before them. The appearance of Gillmore Lab had changed since the last time they clashed with the Black Ghost. It looked more like a form of secret base of operations than a mere laboratory. Gillmore turned around rising from his seat smiling a bit.

"You're still stunning as ever, I see.."

The now 65-year-old doctor greeted 003 with a hug while reminiscing about the good times they had during the turbulence of the early age. She had told the good doctor about the changes that had transpired since then and was updated on the current affairs that had gone on up until now while keeping her sensors on standby for the rest of the team. Curiously, Ivan rose from his seat tapping Francoise on her shoulder blushing.

"Uh...remember me?"

She reared back and gasped in surprise of who he was: the tiny baby that she often took care of when Dr. Gilmore wasn't around.

"001?? You've grown into a fine young man. I knew Dr. Gilmore couldn't possibly call us like this."

A heavy trampling sound of metal grinding had gotten close as if a bulldozer was coming this way, following that was the small shuffling of footsteps; the waving of water with drips following behind. The view screen showed three familiar shadows before a wavy sunset.

"Right on time.."

Standing not too far from the lab were 004, 005, and 006 following behind was the shape shifter 007 with 008 following suit. Leading the way going at maximum speed on ground and air were 002 and 009. Along with 003 and the newly grown 001, the secret fighting force was brought together again: Chimu Nibaino Zero Saiborgu Senshi 009. (Team Double Zero Cyborg Soldier 9) After being reacquainted with each other, Dr. Gilmore brought forth the video ultimatum that was received after the automaton attack. Upon further investigation of watching the ultimatum, 003 had noticed a vital detail unnoticed by normal means.

"003? What is it?"
"That place, it was dark with the scent of some kind of sea water.."


001 ran the details through the Hyper Indication Scanner (HIS for short) and the end results left the team in shock..

"Atlantis...”
"But...how...no, WHY did this HAPPEN??!!"
"My guess is Black Ghost; they cut off ties after they won their freedom and independence.”
"Damn bastards...are there any survivors?"
As 001 went deeper, 004 had grown more and more concerned (since their last encounter, it reminded him of how Berlin was) he felt the firm gentleness of 005's hand on his shoulder as they waited along with the others. The populace locator found an uncertain answer to the result so 001 personally took matters into his own hands by using his telepathic power to cast the image in his mind to the view screen. He saw the ruins of the lost city of Atlantis, and seemingly the energy signature going on was faint and difficult to pinpoint, no doubt there was life even if it was a slim trace of it. Coming out of his trance, he lifted his head taking a sigh of relief as he faced the team with his hands resting in his lap.
"You can relax...I found that there are a few survivors remaining. We need to investigate this matter immediately. I'm appointing 008 as team leader and 004 and 005 as support. Let us know the situation as soon as you can."

The trio understood and took the small undersea submarine towards its destination of Atlantis. A sudden emergency podcast came on screen shortly after they left.

"Sacramento is under attack by what seems to be a metal octopus! The Army, Navy and homeland forces' attacks have no effect to this threat!"

With that, 001 rose from his seat as he and Dr. Gillmore went into a private conference with each other. This however hasn't gone unnoticed by 003 and her super auditory sensors while watching the emergency broadcast. 009 moved alongside 003 wondering what exactly was going on.

"So what's going on in there 003?"
"By the looks of it, it does have something to do with 001. Although I wish I knew what they were saying."

After two hours, Dr. Gillmore came out with 001 with a serious look on his face.

"Everyone I have an announcement. In the light of recent events, I'm bringing 001 into active duty along within the team. Any objections?"

The team had no objections with 001 joining in, from that moment on; he became an official member of Team 00. He was assigned as support to the California mission alongside 002 with 009 leading. They took off for the US at once.

Chapter 4: 001's First Field Ops Mission: Operation-Save California!

As the team raced towards California, an army of automatons launched a surprise attack from the rear. 002 and 009 took their battle stations and manned the side guns while 001 focused mainly on getting to their destination in one piece. The sky blazed with gunfire as the mission team held their ground with their robotic pursuers.

"How you holding up kid?"

001 quietly sat as he flew the aircraft down as 002 and 009 made their way back to their seats. In a delayed response, 001 nodded to 002 rather quickly with a sigh of relief following. 002 grimaced patting his shoulder gently as they came upon a special runway that was made for them as they landed at JFK International. One of the Army's strategists notified them on the current situation as it stood. They left the escort jeep and what they saw was too horrific for words. Streets were demolished, neighborhoods were ravaged and those whom escaped witnessed their lives being ruined through this madness.
The mechanical squid that was considered the culprit behind destroying the social district was behind it. From what they were told, it came out of nowhere destroying half of the city in its rage. Nothing was spared or safe from its devastating attacks. The people had no choice but to evacuate the area, there were some whom were brave enough to watch their beloved town become nothing in a matter of minutes. As 001, 002, & 009 continued to investigate, the mecha squid reemerged from the opposite side and started attacking the cyborg fighters. Splitting apart, 002 went to the air while 009 stayed on the ground whereas 001 was in the middle of locating the weakness as well as cover fire.

"Joe I think I found its weakness, but you're gonna need some outside help with this. In the meantime, you and Jet are going to stall it long enough to reveal it."

Joe thought he'd never had to use his Time Accel power again since the last time he nearly caused an accident with it. For Jet, he only used it once just to save Joe with it. Ivan thought it was risky but it was his power that saved them both last time they faced Black Ghost, the only difference here is that he grew up.. Taking the chance, both 009 and 002 took off at four times normal speed breaking both light and sound with enough force to blow away the squid's balance and knock it off its tentacles, within that split second, 001 jumped out of hiding and fired a blast long enough to penetrate its core. Due to the distortion of time, the shot takes two seconds longer than as of a half-second in normal time. 009 ran back to get 001 out the way of the blast as the mechanical squad exploded into pieces.

"Dr. Gillmore, this is 001. We've destroyed the squid but the city is..."
"I know, that couldn't be helped. Thankfully no people were present..."
"Dr. I think something feels awfully off…We found this strange chip in the rubble."
"Bring it 009, it might pose as a clue."

With that said, the trio returned back to base, vowing to return back to help with the recovery of the city. In the meantime, they returned back to base with the chip in their possession, wondering where it was made and manufactured.

Chapter 5: Genesis of Next

Upon reaching headquarters Dr. Gillmore investigated the origin of the strange computer chip, upon further detail there was some startling yet unsettling events that were discovered while sharing the information with the others.

`The Gemini Circuit: Otherwise known as the 'conscience' circuit was crafted by Dr. Komyoji. A brilliant and gifted genius who believed that technology could help aid humanity instead of harming it further. He had succeeded with three humanoid-type models; the JNK-00, JN-01, and MVH-X. Upon the final day of testing, Dr. Komyoji was brutally slain by unknown assailants. It was reported that Dr. Gill, Komyoji's former partner was behind the murder. The legacy and secrets of Komyoji's work were held in the hands of his children; Mitsuko & Masaru. His last request was to have his bloodline protected...This mission was given to his creation Kikaider.`


"So this chip must worth something if Black Ghost is after it. Does this Gill still around working with 'em or something?"

While they went further on into Dr. Gill's criminal record. To their dismay, his record was much worse than Black Ghost. By undermining the doctor's work, he started creating an army of hybrid robots to destroy his former partner and thereby calling it a "freak accident". Strangely the rest of his bio was considered "invalid" (for security reasons). They understood the mystery of the illusive Gemini circuit and why Black Ghost is relentlessly after it.

"My hunch says something else.."
"Like what 001?"
"That squid that we destroyed had a lifeforce…it was faint but it was there."
"So, what we fought was.."
"A living being. Now consider if all of humanity was implanted with this chip…and what Black Ghost plans to do if they had it."


Slavery: pure and simple. If Black Ghost had their hands on it, they'd have themselves an army in the blink of an eye. By implanting that chip inside a human through the ear and forcibly connect it to the brain, the subject would lose all sense and thought of itself. That is what the 00 Team plans on halting production of. But before they could do that, they haven't heard from the away party that was still investigating Atlantis. In the meantime, Joe and the others began plotting their next move. Just then 003 heard the shuffling of something solid from 50 miles away, but once it grew closer, it stopped.

"I think we have company.. and I think this person wants to speak with you 009. Be careful Joe.."
"I plan to Francoise.."

As the hatch opened, 009 ascended on the lift once reaching the rooftop meeting the stranger in a face to face confrontation. The question lies in if he's friend or foe…

Chapter 6: A Tale of Tragic Fighters

A mysterious young man faced 009 as they shared a bit of themselves on the field. He seemed to be the same age as Joe (had they been human) and his appearance was that from the seventies. From his bell bottoms to the guitar strapped on his back, one would think he was a wandering musician like a bard from the Arthurian era, but his eyes told a different story. He sought after vengeance and redemption in his life, and what he had discovered, he wasn't sure if he could give freely and openly...for he was different.

"You have something I want...”
"First off, who are you and how'd you know of this place?"
"If I tell you, I'll be forced to fight you."
"I hate direct conflict, especially if the reason to fight has no meaning."
"Fine..name's Jiro and I'm looking for that missing Gemini circuit you stole."
"STOLEN?! We didn't STEAL it! We found this and acquired it during our Field mission, it's not like we're going to keep it."
"Then I'll just have to take it back by force!"

Jiro began a relentless assault of punches and kicks against 009 whose speed can only be matched by his power. Surprisingly Jiro was faster than him and caught him off guard.

"You're rather amazing Jiro, I bow to your skills although something tells me you're not human..."
"How very perceptive of you, I'm not.” He replied with a smirk.


Jiro leapt back with his arms crossed clasping his shoulders shuddering for a moment with shut eyes. Joe stayed on guard while keeping his vision locked on the transformation.

"3.. 2..1!!!! CHANGE!!!!!"

Within seconds, a blinding light appeared as Jiro opened his eyes, his clothes ripped apart from his body, but instead of seeing flesh there was metal, with flashing yellow sensors that replaced his human eyes and his body was a mix of wires and circuits meshed together. No longer was he Jiro, but he became…JINZO NINGEN KIKAIDA! (Mechanical Man Kikaida)
009 quickly fired in retaliation while darting away from his nemesis in an attempt to counterattack, however Kikaida phased in between the blasts and knocked him off guard again (this time, twice as hard) leaving him severely damaged. He shuddered as he was heaving a bit in trying to catch his breath, unaware that his power was at danger level.

"What is going..on here..?! I thought..he was one..of us..??"

Meanwhile in the lab, the rest of the team could only watch as Joe struggles to fight on. Although to 001, he knew something was off and this fight was clearly one-sided.

"Of course! That can't be him…That's NOT Kikaider!"
"Well if it's not him, who is he??"
"I have no idea 007, but keep watching...”


009 grew fatigued and hardly had any fight left in the battle, yet he struggled to point his ray gun in defiance to the seemingly 'fake' Kikaider. Was there any hope left for 009 or is this his last fight?

Chapter 7: Kikaida vs. Kikaida?!

009 stood upon the brink of death as he struggled to find whatever strength he had in him to keep on fighting the fake Kikaida. He couldn't call for help nor gain advice during this duel, but as far as the battle had gone, his strength was dwindling down.

"How does it feel being defeated by a SUPERIOR being?? Now I WILL scatter your obsolete parts across THIS FIELD!!!"

As he advanced towards 009, the balance of power shifted as 009 felt his power dropping before his most dangerous enemy ever faced. Running on 0.1% power, he tried to hold up a defense against his next attack. A Photon cannon formed from Kikaida's left hand, fully-charged as he approached his nemesis with a sadistic grin creeping on his face.

"Any last words...CYBORG SENSHI??!!"

From out of nowhere, a sudden blur hit him chipping the fake Kikaida's cannon off and with that, a strange black circuit that seemingly alters appearance. With that, the fake changed into its true form: a black android with an implanted human brain in its system. Without the cannon, his circuitry reverted back to his hand and turned his attention to whom struck him.

"Kicking a man when he's down…That's so like you, dear brother.."

He backed away as he saw the face of his attacker and gone into shock. His own younger brother...the real KIKAIDA!!! 009 sighed in relief seeing his old ally before him before going into temporary shutdown. Meanwhile back at headquarters, the team grew silent while 001 followed the event taking place. He also felt a faint lifeforce reading from 009; it was enough for him to teleport back to the lab. By using his psychic power, Joe was sent to the emergency center, where Dr. Gillmore was in the middle of taking inventory.

"JOE?!! 007, what happened to him??"
"Hakaida, that's what. He called him out and as you can see…he ain't lookin' so hot."


Dr. Gillmore wasted no time in setting up the analyzer and auto-repair unit. He gave 007 the order to go on a recon mission to see where the Spectre will strike next. By transforming himself into a fly, 007 exited out the window undergoing his mission.
Back on the field, Kikaida and Hakaida (or as he'd call himself 'Chokaida') continued their age-old duel as usual, leading up to a heated climax. From hand to hand and blaster combat, the fight came down to one final attack... They stood on opposite sides of the field, the two brothers that were made by the same man who crafted them.. One considers him as a father, while the other sees him as a puppet master who delights in seeing his creations run rampant over the planet. Divided by only their consciousness of good and evil, they slowly heated up their internal boosters up to max.

"I hope you got insurance little brother, you're gonna NEED IT!! You'll be joining 009 in the scrap heap!"
"You'll pay for what you did to 009.."

As their engines roared, they charged at each other...FIST FIRST! Sparks flew as their fists met each other, their power going at overdrive, it seemed the battle was going into a stalemate at this point. Slowly Hakaida backed off with a grin allowing Kikaida to blow him away intentionally as his enlarged jet booster activated hovering over him for a time.

"You know, I'll simply wait to finish you. I want to see you die...IN FRONT OF YOUR WOMAN!!!"

Kikaida took off after him but it was far too late, Chokaida had escaped leaving a very enraged Kikaida behind. All that was left him was his maniacal cackle echoing in the sky. Although the battle had ended, the damage has been done. With 009 temporarily out of commission, the 00 Team was helpless at this point, their only hope lied in 008's away team and 007's recon mission for success. Kikaida decided to help out the 00 Team anyway he can.

Chapter 8: The Atlantis Revolution

The ruins of a fallen empire, an ancient race known for its advanced academics and art long sought by man was rumored to be no more, that is until 008 and the others arrived.. They were on a special mission to investigate why Atlantis has strangely revived itself and what exactly happened to cause Atlantis' sudden fall to begin with. As they ventured in deeper, they made a startling discovery: there were survivors!

"001, are you getting this? Let the doc know there's still life here! We're going in deep.."

Just as they were reporting the situation, they were cut off by a strange interference, it was uncertain if it was the place itself or some jamming device as the cause. Communication to the outside world was prohibited from this point on. Coming out of nowhere, a pair of stone golems captured 004, 005, and 008. Their hands were bound to chains as they were brought to the royal chamber of Atlantis' new leader. She was tough, bold, and passionate about the welfare of her people. She was there as Atlantis fell before her as a child, she lost everything that ever mattered to her..her parents, her friends.. her entire world gone in an instant by that dark day. She was a victim of the Atlantia Evaporous; a cancer-like disease that eats away at the victims' lungs rapidly depleting away the air supply thereby killing the blood flow in their bodies.
How she survived all this time is by a special lung guard that was developed by the doctors to prevent them from drying out if the people ever wanted to live among the land. It was made of an invisible coating couldn't be seen in the light itself. It prolonged the health and life of the inhabitants as far as they wore them. When she saw the trio, she glared at them at which had spears pointed at their throats.

"UPLANDERS!!!! You are in the presence of Lady Allarin! You WILL show your respect to her!"

With the butt of their spears, they forcefully made them bow before her as their uniforms were stripped from them. She nonchalantly waved her hand allowing them to speak while taking her seat listening to what they have to say.

"Your Majesty, we're no spies. We're the Cyborg Senshi."
"008 is right, we've only come here on an investigation mission. We merely want to know what happened to Atlantis, that's all."

At her side was a strange hooded figure, whom she trusted as her advisor. While she listened to them explaining themselves, her adviser whispered something to her about them. Apparently it was in their native tongue and without the aid of their comrades, there was nothing they could do. 004 did try to make out what was being said and in defiance, he elbowed both guards who bound him.

"GUARDS!!!!! DETAIN THE PRISONERS!!!!"
"We have done NOTHING to you! You may have taken our uniforms and weapons, but we're people too!"

The hooded adviser sneered and hissed at 004's defiance and ordered for them to work at the underground mineral mines. After being knocked unconscious, 004, 005, & 008 were sent underground as slaves. As they got familiar with their new surroundings, they saw the horrid, dank and dim corridors that were linked to the lost ruins of Atlantis. Rumors often spoke of the vengeful spirits that used to live here before Allarin's generation came about. They wanted revenge for the one who ended their lives so short: Black Ghost. The people whom also worked here were made of elderly men, women and children; they were separated by the guards who often 'disciplined' them. 004 and 008 were former victims of this oppression, and seeing this scene relive in their minds is enough to make them sick. Seeing that enslavement is made by Black Ghost was all they needed to know in order to free them. Something had to be done, but the question lied in how to do it. As they were brought to their position, they heard a weak groan and a loud crack of the whip in the next corridor.
As Albert and Pyunma lowered their pickaxes, Geromino urged them to keep going as to not cause any more attention to themselves. He spied in on the next room and saw an old woman being whipped mercilessly by three guards. Taking a pebble, 005 tossed it knocking out of one of the guards. The ploy had worked and having the other two go after him was easy. When the gone after him, all they found instead of him, they found a decoy and with that…trouble. With a dive attack, 005 nailed both guards with a submission hold motioning to 004 and 008 to take up these clothes as they imitated the guards themselves. With the guards tied up, they carried on as the security while infiltrating the ranks and gaining trust of the court. 005 turned his attention to the people as he freed them from their shackles and nursed everyone back to health. The old woman whom he had saved earlier happened to be the village elder, Sa Rah. She foretold that three warriors from the world above would hold the power to free this once cherished kingdom from its mysterious oppressors.

"Allarin herself is a prisoner of this 'shadow'. You see, she is an oracle and in her current stare, her powers are dormant making her a target to the darkness. Please, we beg of you to save her."

005 held her tiny hand in his and nodded solemnly with a smile.

"Rest assured that we don't plan on leaving until all of Atlantis is saved."

By breaking off all the shackles that held her people, 005 along with Sa Rah, started their own revolution by raising the spirits of the people. They refused to continue on with this madness and live in fear of those that oppress them. After all, this is their home as well. Elsewhere 004 and 008 made their way back to the throne room, neither Allarin nor her adviser could be found but they did hear some voices nearby.

"Man, that Allarin chick is so EASY! Too bad she'll die soon.."
"Yeah but the Spectre says we'll be able to become a free nation again. We'll finally get the respect that we SO deserved!"

By pressing a button on his wrist, 004 drew out his trusty laser knife and caught one of the guards while 008 went on the look out while recording the conversation. He drew his knife to the guard's throat and began extracting the information needed.

"If you want to live, you'll tell us where we can find Lady Allarin.."

The terrified guard pointed to a special door with an Atlantian insignia on it. 004 went on ahead while 008 provided backup. Allarin was surprised to see that 004 entered her private domain and was tempted to scream until he put his finger on her lips explaining his motives for being here.

"Why should I trust you?"
"Because we're here to help you. You're all in grave danger. The adviser is really..."

Before that vital information could be shared, 004 was clubbed from behind by none other than the Spectre himself! Once Allarin knew the truth, she now regrets what she done to her people. She tried thrusting her dagger at him but got caught instead.


"Take these two to the Black Citadel! They WILL know fear soon enough!"

And just that instant, he vanished right along with his henchmen. With the information needed, it was up to Pyunma to reach Geronimo in time for help. Can he do it?

Chapter 9: Cyborg Showdown! An Old Rival Returns!

Hours passed since the repair synapsis of Joe’s comatose status and now came the time for the upgrade operation. Joining Dr. Gillmore were 002 and 003 while 001 continued lookout duty. From what the report said, 009's basic accel program core was extremely damaged as well as his muscle accelerators in the arms and legs that were ultimately weakened by the overload of power that was expended over the past years. The operation started at 6am as the good doctor and his assistants began the upgrade. Starting with the Time Acceleration program, the data began uploading at the doctor's immediate behest and proceeded with replacing all basic muscle accelerators with a new model type. 002 replaced all faulty and worn wiring with a fresh new set of wiring and changed 009's normal shelled body with a fresh body shell made of titanium alloy.
The only side effect that it had was the weight was ¼ as heavy than his normal body shell. With that met, it only reinforced the shield damage that 009 could take but could dish out more damage. Around 5pm, Tuesday evening the operation was complete. It was quiet at HQ as everyone waited for 009 to come back online. Dr. Gillmore (whom always put his heart and soul in his work) sat in his chair sleeping, exhausted by the operation that worked everyone. This break gave him some downtime to reevaluate his life leaving him to think if this will be the last time he will actually see world peace this time around. 001 and 002 passed the time away by playing Battle Checkers (and so far, 001 won 5 consecutive times in a row). As for 003, she too was exhausted, not only physically but emotionally as well. She laid her head on Joe's chest feeling the comfort of hearing his heartbeat soft yet faint. She enjoyed the moment for what its worth even if was the worst time known. Sadly this time was cut short as a new danger approached them. 001 rolled his seat over to on-screen scanner and called 002 and Kikaider over to see this. Since 009 wasn't active just yet, for the interest of safety, this information must be kept among them. What they saw on screen was an all too familiar character, he seemed the same but from what 001 picked up was totally different, power-wise.

"Cyborg 0010.. Great timing for him to show up like this."

For Kikaider, this is the first time he ever heard of this individual so 001 gave a short briefing of who he was. 0010 was made as a rogue cyborg with sole purpose of killing the Double Zero team, especially the one whom bested him last time: 009.

"There's one reason why he came back."
"Revenge.."


001 felt that 009 wasn't fully active yet as well as for 003 and Dr. Gillmore's condition. With the rest of the team gone, they found themselves backed in a corner as it seemed. 001 took it upon himself to go out there and confront him alone. Kikaider stopped him before he stood up placing his hand on his shoulder.

"You can't fight...besides what would happen if you lost? We'd be without a lookout and Dr. Gillmore would be dead. So instead, I'll go in the place of you and try to hold him off as best I can."
"Kikaider..Jiro, thank you very much."

As soon as he left HQ for the field, there was already someone entering the field of battle before him taking on the maniacal 0010 and to everyone's surprise, it was the one person they wouldn't expect: Cyborg 009 himself!

Chapter 10: Inazuman Joins the Fight! The End of Cyborg 0010

In an astonishing twist of events, 009 showed up on the field alongside Kikaida as they faced off against 0010 while the others look on. 003 grew concerned for 009's well-being as well as their long-time ally, Kikaida.
Within a blink of an eye, their speed was so unimaginably fast that they vanished before everyone's eyes. Fortunately 003 caught sight of where they were headed. The trio fought their way towards a rundown area of Shinjuku as 009 and Kikaida charged towards 0010 unaware of the surrounding area they arrived on where a new competitor was waiting for them. Pausing for a moment, the sky suddenly grew black as thunder rolled and as soon as they moved, lightning flashed before them as they dashed at 0010 as a sudden blast knocked them back while a sinister smirk rolled on 0010's face. The fight had suddenly turned to his favor once the image of his 'partner' revealed himself.

"I'm sure you remember this old friend of yours? Well, he's working for ME now!"

Shocked, they stepped back in surprise as they couldn't believe who they were fighting against: INAZUMAN! Yet, something about him was definitely off…his power was split apart since the possession, leaving the other half of him happens to be his lesser form, Sanagiman!
Before they were about to fight again, Sanagiman made the plan to divert attention away from 0010 long enough to get himself fused with Inazuman to fully regain his lost powers. With that, 009 and Kikaida took off after 0010 as they battled him regardless of the handicap. Phasing back and forth through the air and ground, they drew 0010 away from the battle between Sanagiman and Inazuman as they began their battle.

"Time to take it a notch, you ready Kikaida?"
"Ready 009! LET'S GO!"

Within an instant, 009 ignited his Super Distortion slowing down 0010 long enough to dish out some damage. By indivertibly tripping him, he caught him a grab and spun around insanely fast while everything around him slowed down four times as slow and threw him high in the air as Kikaida bolted in the sky crossing his arms while rocketing towards 0010, as soon as he was close enough, his gloves charged up with electricity as he spiraled his way against him with a massive load of punches with a hard side-way hook sending him crashing towards the ground. Following up the attack, he dove with a powerful kick thrusting him down to the ground.
Elsewhere, Sanagiman's power increased as he had enough strength to transform to his ascended form. He backed off as he suddenly gone into defense while Inazuman was on the offensive while Sanagiman was in his cocoon status. "CHOURIKI SHORAI!!!" With that said, the blast was so powerful that it blew Inazuman so far back that it took awhile for him to recover. Emerging from the cocoon was his ascended form...INAZUMAN FLASH! As he posed, he called upon his flying car, Raijingo to finish off his evil side with fire missiles as it faded away once destroyed.
With a shocked and bittersweet defeat, 0010 shuddered as he struggled to get up. 009 slowly walked towards him as 0010 scurried himself away from his nemesis. His power was no longer feared by 009 since all the torment of times past began to have its repercussions on 0010.

"How..no, why..did you.."

009 narrowed his eyes as he continued his advance towards him, this time with his gun in hand.

"If I let you go again, you'll only attack us again...and I won't let you destroy Dr. Gillmore or 001 as long as I'm alive!"

0010 nervously grinned as he begged for mercy while 009 kept getting closer. When he was close enough, he paused listening to his plea one last time.. The trigger was pulled and.. BOOM!!!! The threat that was Cyborg 0010 was no more. For a moment, Kikaida questioned Joe's motive for destroying him.

"I may have just saved him from himself...”

With that said, Inazuman, Kikaida and 009 rode back to Gillmore Labs together returning and plotting their final attack for bringing down the Earth's sworn enemy: the Black Ghost...

Chapter 11:Third Operation- United! The Earth Will Stand and Fight!

Somewhere over the Arctic Ocean, there were rumors of a dark citadel hovering over the corner of Iceland. It is here that the Spectre begins his next live broadcast, but this time…the stakes have become higher.

"Greetings people of Earth, it is I whom purges order from chaos! Also a special greeting to the Cyborg Senshi to whom I cannot forget. I happen to have one of your people along with a few special guests here with me…such as the Queen of Atlantis to name a few. Since you dared to refuse the order of the Black Ghost, all of Earth will be sentenced to.. COMPLETE AND TOTAL ANNIHILATION! But you can surrender to me by handing over Dr. Gillmore! You have 48 hours to comply Cyborg Senshi Tai.. the choice is yours!"

Unaware of the activity going on outside, 007 managed to capture a few shots of the citadel and the super weapon that Spectre intends on using to destroy Earth before flying back to HQ. Elsewhere in the lab, the away team finally reunites with the rest of the group trading information with their encounter with Atlantis to the current situation as it stands. Dr. Gillmore and 001 jumped on the chance to catch the Spectre's coordinates right after the broadcast aired. Just as soon as they got to work, 007 bolted in so fast, he accidentally hit the wall just before morphing back to his human form.

"I see our crash-test dummy came back.."

"Yuk it up flyboy, I MEANT to do that."

Britain returned with some incriminating evidence that'll turn the tide to this war immensely. Ivan magnified the photos that were taken by the time the broadcast was on.

"As you can see, this is Spectre's main base of operation, he dubs it "Black Satanic Ghost" but..that's not all, he has quite a few captives to say the least INCLUDING 004 and Allarin in his possession and to make matters worse..he made that heinous superweapon of his."

"Well, why need Dr. Gillmore if he has THAT?"

"I used to work for Black Ghost remember? I know certain things that THEY don't know."

Outside, Kikaida and Inazuman listen in on the plan to take down "Black Satan" while on guard duty. Somewhere in the forest, Joe and Francoise try to enjoy their last moment of peace before their last battle.

"Joe, why did you leave like that...”

"At the time while the data was uploading into me, I could hear you call my name, you even cried for me.."

For a moment, 009 watched the clouds go by while 003 wrapped her arm around his waist watching right along with him. They spent most of the day talking about what they did over the 15 years since they battled with Black Ghost. Francoise spoke about the reoccurring nightmares of him and Jet exploding upon impact after the battle. She sobbed at the thought of losing Joe again if it were to happen this time around. The fact that this will be different frightened her to no end…until Joe caressed her back looking to the sky then to her.

"Things'll be different this time, but there's one favor I have to ask."

"Yes Joe?"

"Will you marry me?"

She gasped hearing his statement and hugged him tight as her reply. For that moment, the only concern Francoise had was how it would be possible for two artificial humans to be married and if possible, start a family.

"Is it even possible for us to have a family?"

"Hm..we can always try."

Back at the lab, Inazuman and Kikaida contemplated their differences about the world while continuing their guard duty.

"I couldn't help but watch you tune your eyes and antenna this entire time, why is that?"
"Oh that? Yes, I've just been relaying some information to someone I know.."

Inazuman turned to him with a questioned look.

"Who?"

Kikaida folded his arms slightly with a slight smirk. "If I told you, I'd have to kill you.."

"Heh, I'm dying to know already."

Kikaida glanced over to Inazuman while tuning his antenna more for better reception while receiving the last of his transmissions.

"Fine…if you must know, it's 01.."
"Who's he?"
"My older brother, Ichiro.."

Inazuman smirked for a second continuing this stimulating conversation with Kikaida. He glanced over to Inazuman still wondering why is that so funny to him.

"I never would've expected to hear androids having family members.."

"That is so like a human to say such things... Dr. Gillmore happens to have one child living with him, a pacifist, a cook and six other people that I hardly know. As for me, Komyoji was like a father to us and I'm the youngest of the three."


"That's where I differ…I'm not a human, I'm a mutant." Inazuman glanced down at his hand for a moment.

"You're a mutant, yet why do look like a moth? Even more so, if you're called Inazuman, why did you add 'Flash' to it? You think you're Flashman or something?"

"I could ask you the same question about you. You're an android yet you call yourself ‘Mechanical Man Kikaida’? Why don't you call yourself Machineman instead of Kikaida?"

They discussed many things over this short time they've known each other even going as far as reverting to their secret identities and shared their individual reasons for fighting. For Kikaida, he along with 01 are in to save those they were sworn to protect. For Inazuman, it was for the sake of humanity, even if some are still prejudiced and fearful of the changes that life goes through.

"Well Jiro, this is our time now.. The time has come for us to put aside our differences and bring an end to this madness that Black Ghost is starting again."

"I couldn't agree with you more, Goro."

Just as they were about to join the others inside, a young man whom resembles Jiro arrived and brought along with him five colorful, yet masked fighters. With the odds of success resting in their favor, the fate of Earth now rests squarely in their hands.

Chapter 12: Assault on the Dark Citadel! The Rise of the Great Invincible Team Up!

01 waved from below once he saw his brother, as for the company he brought, they got off their bikes waiting for the others. Kikaida informed the rest of the team that reinforcements had arrived and waiting outside. Dr. Gillmore encouraged the team to go ahead while he finishes his own preparations while proceeding with the broadcast.

"Um…you're not a new brand of Kamen Riders are you?"

"No, we aren't. But we picked up this signal and decided to investigate."

"We're from Eagle."

"Hehe..Jet, got any relatives?"

Jet popped Chang for that comment as something dawned on that bit of information.

"Not funny Chang. I have heard of Eagle, it's an international military organization that's been around since 1975."

"So..you heard of us.."

"Actually I never heard of you.."

"Ooh, are you guys in for a treat."

They stood before them in arrow formation presenting themselves one by one in a fighting pose. A pose that left everyone in silence or in dumbfounded confusion.

"Akarenjå! Aorenjå! Kirenjå! Midorenjå! Momorenja! TOGETHER WE ARE....HIMITSU SENTAI GORANGER!"

Ivan remembered clearly whom they were by the news clippings from over the years about a secret force taking down the criminal up rise known as KuroJuu Jigun (translated as the Black Cross Army) and the team that destroyed this evil went by one name: Five Ranger. They were considered a long forgotten team that was simply known as 'sentai'. While the teams formulated their last preparations, a silent and solemn Dr. Gilmore gave one last long look at his life's work sighing quietly while clasping his hands together.

"This is not only our last battle but this is MY last battle with that organization so whatever happens, I'll leave this world a free man.”

With that said, he turned the switch on presenting a special message for the Earth alone. He felt a shortness of breath as he stood up before the screen lit up, but his fear welled up into courage as he began.

"People of Earth, for over many decades we have fought many invaders, foreign and domestic, and now we face a greater threat than Hitler. I speak of the Black Ghost, this entity has struck fear in the hearts of us and we've allowed this hatred to go as far as causing a rift of the duty we were given. As a victim of this madness, I was forced to bring doomsday to the world but instead of that, these young individuals have decided to take a stand to this chaos. We must follow this example for this world…is OUR HOME!"

The combined teamwork of the Cyborg Senshi, the Kikaidas, and Goranger were about to be put to the ultimate test as they flew off to the final showdown with the Spectre and ultimately, Black Ghost himself. The fight was going to be on their terms and bring the fight to them. As they reached Black Satan, 007 morphed himself into Dr. Gillmore while Inazuman and the others waited on the sidelines for the signal. The plan was simple: 007 would infiltrate the hideout and rescue 004 and the rest of the captives, disassemble the super weapon and take down the Spectre in one fell swoop.

"We're near Black Satan…ready back there Britain?"

"Hey Ivan, that's Dr. Gillmore to you! And this shall be my greatest performance! Let's DO THIS!"

As 001 lowered the jet upon the landing pad, 'Dr. Gillmore' finally stepped out meeting the skull-faced Spectre as he was escorted inside the citadel catching a quick glimpse of the prisoners before showing off his super weapon, "Absolute".

"Dr. Gillmore, it is an honor to have you here. As the creator of those toy soldiers you prize yourself on, you used to work for us, I called for your services to help me with a…dilemma, if you will.."

"{toy soldier huh..} Well, give me a piece of paper and a marker and I might be able to help you."

Spectre respected his wishes and vanished for a moment...which was all 007 needed for him to work his magic. He found the code to unlock the holding cell that had 004 and Allarin captive. As the door opened, 004 was shocked to see who came to rescue.

"DOC?! What're you doing here?"

"Oh really now Al, I'm not THAT old! Take this code and get everyone out of here before we're found out!"

As 004 and Allarin escaped, 007 gave a good look and grinned as he did his own 'modifications' on the superweapon. Once they escaped, as they made their way out the exit with the rest of the captives, the alarm sounded as soon as they reached the outside. 004 found himself facing a squadron of black hooded grunts that went by one name: Zolders, and behind them was a giant battleship that gone by the name "Battra".

"Shit.."

All eyes were on 009 as felt now was the most opportune time to strike. They swooped in swiftly as they took down the aircraft with their Vulcan cannons as they initiated the attack. Behind them were Inazuman and Raijingo taking out the smaller troops. Joining 004 on the ground were the Kikaidas and Goranger and the fight seemed to be on their side and once that happened, all hell broke loose. Once the Spectre returned with the materials needed, there was an envelope in his name that had a short message written on it.

`Look behind you..`

Doing so, he found his beloved weapon of mass destruction defiled with graffiti, wires being pulled out and torn and a word spray painted across it with a cartoony version of 007 on it, which it said "SUCKER!"
Enraged by this action, he called upon the remnants of Shin Jin Rui, Despå Gundan, (New Human Order and Despar Army) Ambassador Hell and Gel-Shokka giving the order to eliminate all those who defy the will of Black Ghost. As 007 came out to join the action, the newly created armies came out and turned the fight against them.

"What the HELL is this coming out?? No I mean, WHAT THE HELL MAN?!"

01 and Kikaida found themselves surrounded on all sides by KuroJuu's henchmen as they continued to fight on. Things seemed to go from bad to worst as the numbers grew exponentially. 009 kept fighting as hard as he possibly could alongside his comrades. Even in Super Distortion mode, it seems it wasn't enough. Out of nowhere, the roar of engines was heard as four motorcycles leapt onto the field clearing out rows of enemy grunts with a familiar echo trailing behind.

"LET'S GO RIDER KICK!!!!"

Once the smoke cleared, four insect-like individuals stood with their motorcycles still humming for combat. They were the lone wolves fighting alongside the cause of justice: the Kamen Riders. They were comprised of the original Kamen Rider, Stronger, v3 and Skyrider. They banded together around the Riders as they stood tall, slightly torn and worn, nearly exhausted by the fight.
Dr. Gillmore, whom been watching the battle all this time, patched a signal to all the satellites around Earth's orbit sending this image around the world for all to see.

"If anyone out there still believe in heroes…now is the time, give everything you have for them, after all the time they risked their lives for Mother Earth, now is the time to give back the light they so diligently protected.."

Dr. Gillmore extended his hand toward the monitor lending whatever is left of his own strength they have given him over the years as he offered it back to them. From this selfless example, every man, woman, child and race raised their hands and voices including Earth herself lending its own powers to them. One by one, the heroes felt an overwhelming power surge through them as they held hands.

"We, whom fought alongside of Good.."

"..will stand against fear, hatred and destruction.."

"Our powers united as one..

"HAVE MADE US INVINCIBLE!!!!!!!!!"

"SUPER RESCUE BATTLE EARTH TEAM TOKUSATSU 25!!!!!”

As the dark armies charged towards them, they spun around into the form of a mighty hurricane and swept them up as the force vacuumed each and every one of the revitalized remnants of the past.

"ZENBU HARIKEN!!!!"

As they were thrown up higher in the hurricane, they exploded on impact reaching outside the boundaries of the planet. The Spectre made his escape to the far reaches of the moon where Black Ghost resided. The final battle waits, but who will win and live?

Chapter 13: The Race Against Time! A Farewell to an Old Friend

As the Spectre escaped to the moon, it didn't take them to get a lock on his signal. Apparently catching up to him wasn't going to be a problem, if it means leading to the Black Ghost, that's what was important. 003 caught a glimpse of his ship before leaving Earth's graviton field. Meanwhile, 001 tried to establish a mind link with Dr. Gillmore, but there was no connection going on. Since they share a bond close to a father and son, the link couldn't go faint unless something happened to him..

"Everyone! I can't contact Dr. Gillmore!"
"Strange.. Wait! What of that power we just had?"

"Mm…Earth's energy...the strength of her people.."

001 decided that flying back on vehicles would be too lengthy so instead, he gathered everyone around him and teleported back to Gillmore Lab. The Cyborg Senshi ran inside finding the good doctor in his seat, resting. His breath, short above a whisper once he saw them before his vision went out.

"You..done it.. you...saved us.."

"Father, I'm sorry..he got away.."

"Then, you know…what must be done.."

003 wept as she begged for him not to say anymore, yet he continued to smile weakly to them.

"I've prayed...for the day...you'd settle down... too bad I'll...not be here...to see your...children...”

In his last moment of life, he felt comforted seeing the face of his children one last time. The Cyborg Senshi wasn't just a special team of paranormal investigators, or a fighting force for the side of good and just, they were, to him, his family, he was never more proud for what they did for him on his last day..

"My dear…children, Jet, Francoise… Albert…Geronimo…Chang, Pyunma…Joe and Ivan.
I am grateful…that God...gave me a loving..heart and…the will...to live this long.. Now finish this war…for the future... Make Earth proud.."

With those last words, Dr. Gillmore's life had finally been expired, and as promised he left the world as a free man. They placed his body in one of the capsules that the cyborgs themselves were placed in right after they were moved in the lab. 009 along with 004 and 005 lead the group outside. 001 teleported everyone to a private cemetery where they held his funeral. Geronimo shared in his memorial as they stood around him, listening to what he did.

"Today we pay tribute to a man who is as much a hero as we, but in his own right. He has lived through many decades seeing the horrors and greed of men, as well as the Black Ghost. He decided to take a stand against evil and fight for a better world for human, cyborg, mutant and hybrid alike without fear and hatred. Farewell our heroic Dr. Gillmore, we shall make Earth proud.”


They watched as the capsule descended into the ground as the heroes shared a moment of silence while giving their blessings to him. En route to leaving, 004 noticed a seemingly unmarked yet small headstone. He cleared the leaves that covered the name up and read it to himself. On the grave read the name "Ishinomori" and for someone whom seemed important enough to be here in a private spot like this…deserves to be honored.

"Heroes come in all shapes and colors, whether human or not, masked or unmasked. People are always in need of those who can make the world a better place. God would want it that way as well. Your legacy shall live on.."

009 and 002 joined in by placing a few flowers around the headstone just as 004 was leaving, they bowed in respect and vowed to keep this world as peaceful as possible. While the sun drew to the west, the heroes shared their last sunset together before entering the final confrontation with the darkest and longest-running organization the Earth has ever experienced…

Chapter 14: The Death of the Spectre

Somewhere on the dark side of the moon, Armageddon; Black Ghost's main base of operations jettisons its final weapon, Sinful Omen into operation. The Black Ghost paced while preparations were being finalized. Once the Spectre arrived, he hurriedly fell to his knees bowing to his master reporting in with an overwhelming shiver of fear overtaking him.

"You have returned...unsuccessful.."

"Master..their power is... unimaginable.."

An idea sparked in Black Ghost's heinous mind, something he never expected to happen, the thought of dominating the world without lifting a finger. He sensed the balance shifting as the force of good leaning towards the force of evil.. He glimpsed for a moment at his warped, twisted vision of the future. Bloodshed, anarchy, a world made of fear in his own design..he would rule over Earth as a being whose power would be so great that even God and Satan would bow before him.. He smirked while sending an order for his troops to be on standby for his most diabolical plot ever: Judgment Day...

Back on Earth, the combined forces of the Cyborg Senshi, the Kikaidas, Inazuman, the Riders and the Gorangers finalized their own battle plan to bring an end to the Black Ghost once and for all. Akarenja received a video transmission that was shared with the entire team.

"Greetings heroes, we just received word that Spectre has rejoined Black Ghost on the moon. This image was taken by one of our recon satellites and we have reason to believe that Black Ghost's plans has changed."

"Talk about changes..it looks like the cry of a desperate man.."

"Yes Rider One..and that's all the more reason why we must stop him. Whatever the case, this mission is not about saving the Earth, the universe is at stake. Your aircraft and ground support have been upgraded for this mission. Earth League Guard has also functioned a pact with another organization, and ISSIS has agreed to join in the operation."

"Heh..so we're getting the help of JAKQ..that seems evenly matched.."

"What exactly is JAKQ? We never heard of them before.."

"To answer your question 009, JAKQ are a lot like you except they volunteered to be converted into cyborgs. Clover King, Dia Jack, Heart Queen and Spade Ace..together they are JAKQ Dengeki Tai."

"So that's.."

"Hmm..26, I believe.."

"Make that 28 Commander Edogawa.."

Two familiar men came into headquarters joining in the fight to save the universe. 01 looked up actually surprised to see their second younger brother Ray, along with a man dressed in white resembling a pimp.

"Well now, I see we made it before the ass kicking!"

"Soukichi Banba and Kikaida 00, you grace us with your presence. Apparently you've heard our situation already."

"Just tell us when we get going, I brought Jack Tank with us."

"You leave immediately.. Godspeed everyone, the fate of the universe rests on your shoulders."

As they left in separate parts, Banba along with Inazuman and the Kikaidas flew off in the modified Jack Tank making their rendezvous with Sky Ace, JAKQ and their pilot, Joker. Following behind them were the Cyborg Senshi, the Kamen Riders and the Gorangers as they traveled by air and ground. The combined forces of the Kamen Riders, Himitsu Sentai Goranger, Dengekitai JAKQ, Jinzo Ningen Kikaida, Inazuman Flash and Cyborg 009 are about to be put to the ultimate test as they were launched into outer space en route to the destination: the Moon. EAGLE codename the team: The Tokusatsu 28 as they carried the flame of Earth along with them. Meanwhile back on the Moon, four blips showed up on the radar while Black Ghost cast its sinister glare at the planet Earth as he received word of a small fleet of ships approaching.

"Inform Spectre and Gill, they can handle the sentai that weak little planet enlisted.."

~First Gateway~

As they descended onto the surface, laser fire lit up the space way as Sky Ace and Jack Tank charged through the first wave of drone soldiers while making their advance towards Armageddon. 001 placed the jet on auto-pilot as the hatch opened, the team made a freefall on the surface as they entered combat, 009 lead in the fray by using his speed to confuse the drones while the others helped in finishing off the job and very soon, they reached the end of the first area by meeting a huge gateway, they faced a giant tank with the Black Ghost insignia on it. Trapped within the gateway, they were back in a corner as 003 stood by 009 as she scanned for any known weaknesses while 001 and 002 awaited further orders.

"Joe, there's a weak point in between the turrets, there's a two minute break in between the blasts."

"Alright you heard the lady! Geronimo, Jet, Albert and Ivan: divert all attention away from us for a minute.."

"What about us Joe?"

009 made it clear that as soon as they break through the gateway that everyone separate while helping the other teams join up at Armageddon. Although they amassed a great deal of numbers, taking down Black Ghost this time wouldn't be easy. With the combined teamwork of Cyborgs 001 through 005, and the leadership of 009, the path became clearer as they broke free of the gateway yet the path was still perilous. Sky Ace swooped in over them as the hatch opened.

"Cyborg Senshi! Your fight is elsewhere; we got you covered from here on."

~Second Gateway~

Dropping down from Sky Ace were Dia Jack, Spade Ace, Clover King, and Heart Queen: the Lightning Strike Team JAKQ. As they took over from where the Cyborg Senshi left off, Banba handed control over to Inazuman as he opened the door and leapt out Jack Tank being surrounded by troops, tipping his hat with a smirk he patted his cane on his shoulder as lifted his eyes to them.

"Hey..nice to meet ya."

With that said, he spun his cane around the drones as he darted towards his comrades taking out whatever stood in his way while zigzagging his way with his acrobatics. With rose in hand, he sprung into the air while tossing into the ground as it glimmers the colors of JAKQ. Within an instant, Banba transformed into Big One. As JAKQ reached the second gateway they found that it was moving towards them and they also found themselves trapped in the gateway.

"So what now? We can't seem to get past this!"
"We got nothing left.."
"Oh yes we do…the JAKQ Covack!"

"ACE?! ARE YOU MAD?? We only did that to those drones, THAT'S A LIVING COMPUTER!"

As they joined together, they readied themselves to charge at the organism as it advanced closer to them, an echoing voice paused their movement.

"BIG BOMBER!"


Before their very eyes, Big One stood in front of them with a larger cannon as they struggled to stand with whatever strength they had left.

"SUPER BIG BOMBER!!"
"SET ONE!"
"SET TWO!"
"SET THREE!"
"LET’S COMBINE! SET ON!"
"BIG ONE!"

With the usage of their shells, the cannon charged up twice as fast as normal once the shells were combined as one. Big One along with JAKQ raised the cannon as Big One initiated the attack.

"JAKQ SUPERWEAPON SUPER BIG BOMBER!!"

The blast that came from the Super Big Bomber destroyed the second gateway but also exhausted JAKQ. The last ounce of strength they gave changed them down to normal except for Big One. Inazuman drove Jack Tank towards him as the Kikaidas helped in carrying the members of JAKQ into their strengthening capsules as Big One received word from Joker from Sky Ace.

"Big One, Inazuman and the KIkaidas will take over from here. I'll fly you over towards Armageddon, 009 should be there by now."

~Third Gateway~


The chance on the field brought forth gun-toting, missile-spewing robots that attacked the Kikaidas where they stood. As they scrambled, 01 and 00 covered their brother on the way towards the third gateway. Inazuman fought alongside them clearing some space to pass through safely.

"Jiro, you and Goro get going..Ichi and I got this.."

"Yeah, Gill's waiting for you. Best not to keep your lady waiting either."

When Kikaida escaped, 01 and 00 stayed behind to fight the remnants of the Hakaidas as they joined fists using the Double Brother Attack. Although he wanted to stay and fight with them, he was concerned for his brothers' safety but in this case, he had to fight on without them.


~Final Gateway~


En route to the last gateway, the Riders and the Gorangers fought an almost endless wave of enemy drones as they reached the checkpoint. Rider Ichigo, Stronger, v3 and Skyrider stood at the front lines as the silence of space took over.

"Hm..this is strange.."
"Hongo, what is it?"
"It's quiet..too quiet.."

"Guys, my hunch says Spectre is here.."

Something rumbled from the base as a large hideous shadow towards over them once it rolled closer to them. It had the body of a mobile base but seen inside the cockpit was none other than the Spectre cackling while tearing at the landscape.
"Rider One?"
He answered with the roar of the engine nodding to the other Riders and they passed the word onto the rest as the Cyborg Senshi arrived. They stood together side by side taking a united stand against the Spectre. 001 took over the role of leadership in 009's absence since he went on ahead while taking their place next to the Gorangers.

"Today..shall be our finest..HOUR!!"
"Let the wind ride onto VICTORY!!"

As the Kamen Riders revved up, their combined strength flared up as they rode into the fray, they lead the charge as the rest of the Tokusatsu 28 as the Spectre fired blindly at his moving targets.
"DO IT! NOW!!"
Joining hands, the Riders popped a giant wheelie resulting in a giant leap as they formed into a giant buzz saw searing part of the cannons as the Gorangers followed up with their ultimate attack.


"READY!"
Momorenja provided a football on the stand as the rest of Goranger were in tackle formation.
"GORANGER STORM NEW POWER!!!"

With a mighty kick, Akarenja sent the ball into the range of the main cannon as Spectre fired a huge bolt of energy retaliating while the ball struggled to push towards the cannon. It seemed as if the attack would fail when out of nowhere, a sudden blur, a flash of lightning and a sudden explosion was heard. Everyone was in a state of shock when they saw who reappeared before them: Kikaida (with his unconscious brothers on his back), Inazuman Flash, Big One and Cyborg 009 (in his new blue and black suit). Joe carried the unconscious Spectre from the smoldering ash of scrap and steel as the mask peels off showing part of his face as he's being set in a safe place. Stitches and cuts covered most of his face as he slowly regained consciousness once seeing the faces of his 'captors'.

"Heh..you finally..got me. You plan..to kill..me.. well..do it.."
"Just who are you exactly?"
"And why terrorize Earth the way you did?!"

The Spectre revealed himself as Tatsuo Kagura, formerly known as the masked vigilante, The Skullman. He pledged his allegiance to Black Ghost only to seek revenge against Rasputin for taking everything dear to him but his sense of humanity was long gone and vengeance is the only thing that remains in him since. His eyes glazed over at Inazuman as he shuddered at him.

"You..fight with them..?"

"Yes, I know you...you've killed many people in your sick and twisted revenge but…may God forgive your soul.."

"We're going to finish this... for everyone's sake."

Tatsuo nodded weakly as his life finally expired. Big One waved his hand over his eyes closing them. Now the only obstacle that stands before them is Armageddon; Black Ghost's main base of operations as the final battle drew near...

Final Chapter: The End of Black Ghost

With the threat of the Spectre finally silenced, the only threats remaining are Armageddon, Sinful Omen and the partnership of the Black Ghost and his new-found power. The Tokusatsu 28 faced a tough decision for allowing their leaders inside the compound. Up close, Armageddon was shaped like a five staged pagoda in all its dark glory as they looked upwards at the ominous beam cannon targeting Earth.

“How is it that Black Ghost knows so much about us in such little time?” Red Ranger questioned while observing the tower. Kikaida shook his head in response answering that with a question of his own.
“Even better is how does he know about Gill?” 009, Big One and Rider One had the answer. They fought these organizations countless times and once they were defeated, they waited until their time for revenge was right. Black Ghost probably offered them a sweet deal in the process and thus explaining this culmination of heroes. As they approached, the front gate opened up to them as the gauntlet was being thrown awaiting the team. They stood for a moment glancing at the open citadel then Joe turned to Ivan. The rest of the team wished that they could take their leaders’ places or just not see them go, but for the sake of peace, it must be done. As heroes, they know when to be on the sidelines as support.
“Ivan, lead everyone back to Earth safely.”
Ivan tilted his head slightly to Joe then back to his teammates for a bit. He slumped his head a bit disappointed to seeing his longtime friend go.
“Joe, are you thinking what I think you’re thinking?”
He nodded slowly while taking one last look at the team before shaking Ivan’s hand and bringing him into a tight hug sharing a whisper coded message for the team. 009 stepped back and with a salute, he went on inside with the others just as the gate closed behind them. 001 gave the order to withdraw as everyone disembarked for Earth. While drifting in space, 003 approached 001 with the question of what exactly were Joe’s last words before he entered Armageddon.
“He said that he apologizes for your nightmares and plans to make it up to you sooner than later.”
003 nodded with a hand resting near her heart with a hopeful smile just as she patched the following transmission over to Sky Ace while the monitor focused on the moon. Joker turned up the volume for the rest of JAKQ to hear 001’s broadcast.



“Today we honor the finest heroes that ever graced our lives. They chose to stay and finish the fight that never ended all those years ago. We shall not forget this loss but instead we shall cheer them on towards victory so that every life may breathe for freedom.”

They honored them by hovering in space not moving an inch towards Earth while all eyes were on the monitor. With 009 leading the way, the opening hallway was dark as the door shut behind them. The five heroes were dropped into five different levels of the dark domain, all in which Black Ghost monitored from the control room. Once the lights lifted, the only one remaining was Akarenja who escaped the trap door. Ever cautious, he rest his hand over his whip; New Red Rope while checking the upper perimeters of the base. Going on a hunch that there might be a way to stop Sinful Omen from the inside without directly reaching it. Not far from his location, he heard the rattling of chains and a soft, muffled voice. It was incoherent but familiar to him. Inching closer, he heard some footsteps closing in on his current position and quickly went into hiding in the shadows.

“Zolders, should’ve known but who is that they kidnapped?”
To Akarenja’s eyes, he saw the most grotesquely being the Gorangers ever faced: Black Cross Fuhrer!
By disguising himself into a zolder, he fell in line with the rest and found out the captive chained up to be Zero Zero Seven. Her face was hardly seen but her voice was no mistake.
“You thought you’d sneak in and throw a wrench into Black Ghost’s plans? Once Earth is dominated, we shall rule beside him! But first, we’ll need a sacrifice…”
With a diabolic grin, he left with his fellow Zolders preparing the altar for their dark ritual. All but one was left to guard and that happened to be the disguised Akarenja. Once the coast was clear, he slipped in approaching the captured heroine. She struggled once more thinking she was going to molested or worst until he revealed his disguise showing his real identity.
“YOSHI!!!!”
“Hold still Youko, I’ll get you down…”
With a few cracks of his whip, the slashes broke the chains and shackles holding Zero Zero Seven as the two quickly made their escape, they continued on their mission to find the power source of Black Ghost’s secret weapon. They went through a wide corridor that leads to the power room but as they proceeded, an energy cell trapped them as the Fuhrer held them high above with the deactivation device in hand.
“We meet again Red Ranger! How unfortunate that we must say goodbye so soon…”
The floor under them opened and a pit of spikes were awaiting them just as the Fuhrer left them dangling slowly down to their doom. Could this spell the end for Red Ranger and Zero Zero Seven?
Somewhere below the base, 009 found himself amidst a narrow corridor. Walking closer towards the end of the line, the dark road lit up once he reached the door. He saw a strange lock that he never seen before and on it he saw super deformed markings of Kikaida, Inazuman, Kamen Rider, Big One, and himself made in the shape of a star. It was there that the voice of Black Ghost echoed through the invisible loudspeakers.
“Welcome to the Point Six Trial, 009. You and your insipid allies shall meet your end here! I know Red Ranger will get my ‘point’ the hard way…”
He was shown an image of Red Ranger and his companion slowly descending down the pit, enraged by the scene he was helpless to do anything.
“Patience Cyborg 009, I shall decide if your worthiness is worth basking in my glow…”
And so began the battle stages…



~Kikaida Stage: Existence~

Jiro found himself in a nightmare-like realm where the world was in a state of ruin. There was no sign of life anywhere to be found, artificial or biological. As the mist cleared, he saw the broken bodies of JAKQ, the Kamen Riders, the Gorangers, the Cyborg Senshi along with his brothers. As he saw this twisted and psychotic nightmare continue, the body count increased as he found two smaller bodies within the rest of the corpses. Jiro gasped and backed up in horror as to who he found…
“No...Not you too?! MITSUKO! MASARU!”
While standing within the pool of blood and oil, he fell to his knees in despair and screaming in agony after hearing the whispers of Gill and Saburo call for him while his consciousness was forced into a corner. His eyes turned blood red as he let out an ungodly scream. Waking from his nightmare, Kikaida shuddered a bit while identifying his surroundings; he knew two things for certain: Gill was definitely around and so are Mitsuko and Masaru. He wasted no time in reaching the inner sanctum and found Chokaida waiting for him while the door leading to Mitsuko and Masaru remained locked.
“You’ve come for these humans, have you? How can you protect that which you are not?”
Kikaida raised a hand to his chest and shot his finger out.
“It’s because of them that I have a reason to fight…to keep a threat like you away from laying a finger on humanity.”
They streaked around the arena clashing with fast and furious hand-to-hand combat taking the fight to both ground and air. Both sides struggled for supremacy as the fight raged on. At the climax of the duel, it seemed positive that Chokaida held the upper hand but Kikaida became exponentially stronger. The battle came to a stalemate as the both of them had a stare-off from a distance.
“It’s time to say goodbye…BROTHER!”
“Indeed it is…”
Chokaida revealed a long sword as he charged head-on at his brother while he held his ground. He held no stance of defense that could possibly halt the attack until a split-second later phasing straight through him without a hint of movement.
“You…have already lost.”
As Chokaida turned around, his arms were split into bits and pieces while his body jerked into spasms and short circuited while Kikaida kept his back turned on him.

“I shall be the protector of my world…Denji End…”

Reverting back down to Gill Hakaida, the essence of Gill swore revenge for this insult while the voice of Saburo thanked him for freeing him of his prison before self-destruction. Kikaida ran from the explosion as he reached the holding cell using the last of his strength to break the bars in record time. Exhausted, Kikaida reverted back to Jiro as Mitsuko opened her eyes seeing Jiro with a weak smile along with Masaru, sleeping exhaustedly. As long as they were safe, that was all that truly mattered.

~Inazuman Stage: Acceptance~

In a flash of lightning, Inazuman found himself split apart with his human counterpart, Goro Watari. They heard the voices of Fuhrer Geisel and Emperor Bamba in the distance. Sensing their presence, they were attacked by a wave of thunder. Wasting no time, they raced towards it passing the attack and leapt out the way. As they landed, to their surprise they found themselves surrounded by those who and feared them due to their amazing power, regardless of this sudden act they refused to fight against what they swore to protect: Mankind. Slowly backing up, they noticed that the influence of Geisel and Bamba were seething in their aura.
Goro glanced over to Inazuman with a nod as he reared back his fists knowing what needed to be done.
“Illusion or no, we have to put a stop to this!”
“Indeed, time is of the essence!”
Inazuman charged in while Goro went into his pose transforming into Sanagiman while catching up with Inazuman. As they entered the fray of battle, they covered each other’s back while knocking down wave after wave of zombified humans as Sanagiman’s energy built up to max.

“CHOURIKI SHOURAI!!”
With a combined yell, they cleared the terrain and Inazuman and Sanagiman combined into a full powered Inazuman Flash. As the mist cleared, he saw the true threat that they have fought for years.

“Your evil is an eyesore… It is because of my gift that I am the one that you truly fear. Now this fight ends once and for all!”

The evil beings merged themselves into one giant entity having a misshapen body in which no words could describe it. Surging with this newfound power, Inazuman Flash cast its gaze upward and thrust his palm with a streak of lightning at the beast and in retaliation; it returned the same attack four times as strong. His arm twitched and crackled with more energy as it turned into a long sword of pure electricity. While the struggle continued, Inazuman gathered every bit of energy into one gigantic slash that impaled the Emperor Beast in half and threw him back as he exploded. Moments later, Inazuman noticed the scenery changed from the nightmare into the very corridor he just fought in. Slowly reverting back into Goro again, he slashed away the rest of his electric power with a smirk knowing his job is done.

~JAKQ Stage: Rivalry~

Big One found himself in what was left of the evil syndicate CRIME. As he stepped into the inner sanctum, Spade Ace stood before him with his Space Bow strapped on his back and an outstretched finger.

“You stole my role as leader and I want it back!”

Big One stepped back a bit tapping his cane on his shoulder questioning why Spade Ace is here. Let alone HOW he got here.

“Time to die SOUKICHI BANBA!”

Big One darted towards Spade Ace while sweeping his cape at him from behind. Big One made the assumption that this was not Spade Ace, but there was only one nemesis also knew the true identity of Big One: Iron Claw.

“So you saw through my disguise…”

“Naturally…so shall we end this, it’s time to put an end to the madness!”

Iron Claw tipped his hat converting himself into the menacing Warrior Iron Claw as the two of them began their fight to the death by charging head on to each other with hand-to-hand combat as they streaked all over the room. The battle intensified as sparks flew as their punches and kicks clash as they landed back to their positions. Exhausted from the fight, Big One force reverted back to Banba. Just as Iron Claw closed in to the nearly fallen hero, he heard the voices of his comrades, urging him to finish the fight they started…

“Any last words Big One...or should I call you Soukichi Banba?”

He shuddered raising his head up at him, with a trickle of blood escaping the corner of his lip growling in defiance. His body surged with atomic, electric, gravity and magnetic energies standing to his feet with a smirk.

“Oh I do, but if you think it’s surrender…FORGET IT!”

As Warrior Iron Claw ran towards Banba delivering the final blow to him, out of nowhere, he phased around him with a mighty thrust through his heart dying instantly.
As Banba let go of his cane, he slumped to a knee with his hat tipped over an eye and a tired smirk.

“I did my part…rest is up to you guys…”

~Kamen Rider Stage: Redemption~

Rider One found himself in the remnants of his arch nemesis Shokka and without the aid of Cyclone; the task would seem more difficult than expected. Once he reached the inner sanctum, it became quiet, strangely quiet then the room went dark. Rider One’s visor lit up as he searched the entire room and once he stopped, a pair of lights gleamed in the darkness and from that pair, more lights began to surround him as he slowly backed up. He saw his worst nightmare come true: all of the Riders under Shokka’s influence. The ominous voice echoed as the Dark Riders began their advance.
“Welcome to hell Rider…or is it Hongo Takeshi? I trust you know the Dark Riders already. If you want me, you’ll have to get past them, if you can…”

“Damn you!” Rider growled lowly while tightly clenching his fist to his former allies. “I don’t wish to fight you but I will NOT back down from a fight!”

Rider One charged into the roar of the engines of the Dark Riders once they blazed head on at him. He quickly leapt onto RX’s dark copy, tossed him off his bike and took control of his Hell Rideron and popped a wheelie riding straight through the rest of the Riders. Fighting off his comrades left to right, he combined his moves to keep them off him. As the race melee continued, he nearly got his head knocked off by Super 1‘s clothesline but fought him off with a side high kick. Moments later, after fighting off RX and the others, he shook his head in regret for doing what he did. There was one target left and filled with anger in his fist, he sat on Hell Rideron charging it with his own fighting spirit and rode hard and fast upwards launching himself towards the level where the Great Leader was.
“RIDER JUMP!” Utilizing his powerful leap, he combined his moves again to break the glass that protected his longtime nemesis. The Great Leader tried using his own powers to block his attacks until Rider’s visor flashed and unleashed his signature attack at full power. “RIDER KICK!!” Rider cried while bringing the fight to the Great Leader with a flurry of punches and kicks retaliating with force behind him.
“Foolish cyborg, I made you and this is how you thank your MASTER?!”
With each punch that Rider One delivered, the Great Leader doubled back and became dizzy and dealt him the final blow.
“You’ve taken what was most precious to me, and now I’m TAKING IT BACK! RIDER PUNCH!!”
The force of the deathblow had the Great Leader staggering to his feet unable to die although he was near Death’s door as Rider One leapt from the level and launched him above his head with two hands and empowered by the wind energy his belt charged up at full power blasting the Great Leader upwards to where an unknowingly Fuhrer Cross was caught in the attack and exploded upon impact. Seeing this unexpected twist of events gave Red Ranger the opportunity to escape the trap and along with Zero Zero Seven and hurried back to the power station. Meanwhile, the energy that was released from Typhoon reverted Kamen Rider to his civilian identity: Hongo Takeshi again. This day he redeemed himself and the honor of the Kamen Riders.

~009- the Final Stage: Judgment~

With the six gates opening before 009, the final path revealed to him in the form of a chute as Black Ghost was awaiting his ‘guest of honor’. 009 spiraled in the chute as the path sent him flying throughout the base, and he managed to see the bodies of his comrades upon passing the different chambers of the subbasement. He had no time to think if they were unconscious or otherwise as the end of the line was nearing. Once the chute stopped, 009 stepped out and walked through the six corridors that lead to Black Ghost.

“So glad of you to accept my invitation Cyborg 009.”

“MONSTER! What have you done to my friends?!”

Black Ghost danced around his panel lightly as he lead his arch nemesis a bit waving his finger at him.

“Silly boy, I’ve assigned my generals to put a stop to your combined task force, but this is better than I expected!”



009 glared at him clenching his fist in anger, remembering the pain and agony of what made him and the others who they are. Not only that but the damage that he has caused throughout the decades, is all the more reason why the world is still enslaved in fear.

“You have caused innocent people that would rather die for their homes, their countries, their families than to serve you and suffer! I shall not allow you to threaten Earth any longer!”

“Sacrifices must be made for the dream of MY new world order!”
009 stepped forward aiming his gun at Black Ghost firing a shot and a yell…

“BASTARD!!”

The blast tore up Black Ghost’s cape just as he thrown it off and used it like a shield just as he fired up Sinful Omen. He set a course on a certain landmark that he felt was needed to be the perfect example of his power: the Statue of Liberty! He gave 009 an offer to join him at his side with the rest of his followers. As he approached 009 with his hand outstretched, 009 slapped it away in refusal to the offer.
“I prefer to die fighting than have us serve your dark dream!”

Black Ghost drew out a customized blade from his hand just as 009 readied his gun again as the two of them faced each other for the final time.

“Fine! A battle to decide whom is more worthy to rule the universe!”

They initiated combat as shots were fired from 009’s gun to sparks as Black Ghost’s sword deflecting his shots. They darted around the control room with sparks clashing and flying around just like the previous battles but with more intensity as they grappled tightly clashing each other with their knees as through a storm was brewing. Breaking away, Black Ghost dashed towards Sinful Omen and instead of aiming it at the Liberty Statue and in its place was 009!
Out of sheer desperation, he phased and streaked past the super weapon and the Black Ghost exploding both on contact. He sighed exhaustively after seeing no trace of Black Ghost after the battle. With the self-destruction sequence running, Joe wasted no time in rescuing his comrades that laid in the Six Point Trial. As he left, he was unaware that the Black Ghost wasn’t completely dead. His body mutated after receiving his fallen generals’ spirits. Using the energies of Newmanity Empire,
Despar Army, Shocker, DARK, Black Cross Army and Iron Claw gave their remaining energies to the Black Ghost and grown into a formless giant that tore open the base, he was reborn as the Darkest Hell; the evil of all evil. Red Ranger arrived in the Goranger Ship offering Joe a hand in the rescue, as time winded down to its last ten minutes, 009 activated his speed distortion down to a microsecond picking up Jiro, the Komyoji family and Banba while Red gathered Hongo and Goro as the base was collapsing around them in their escape. Elsewhere in space, the remaining forces of the Toku 28 watched intently as the base exploded. Everyone remained quiet fearing that they were dead…
003 kept her eyes on the screen watching for any sign of 009’s party but for the time, there was no sign of any of them. Either there was no signal or their lifeforce just were very faint. As Armageddon crumbled, a red blur flew out of nowhere with 009 and Red Ranger carrying their allies inside the ship. As Sky Ace and the 00 Jet rendezvous with their allied carrier, an ominous being reincarnated itself ripping part of the moon in four quarters as a familiar face began sucking in the very fabric of space as 009 knew who it was and took the hatch upward. Red Ranger urged him not to fight but 009 shook his head and went up where the ultimate evil awaited him.

“GO! Fly back to Earth without me! I’m gonna settle this once and for all…”

With a glance at the formless shadow, 009 ran off at high speed and launched himself into the vacuum away from his teammates just as they begrudgingly accepted his order. He found himself inside a rift that separated him from reality, time and space. He found the core of the Darkest Hell in the form of the Black Ghost and flew after him. 009 was unaware that he was chasing an illusion and used his speed at his fullest finding the body of Black Ghost being the core of the entity. He used every kind of attack that he had to break through the barrier but continued to bounce off like a ricocheting bullet until he felt his energy dwindle down to almost 0.

“You can’t fight what can’t be killed, boy…”

The entity lunged its claw at him dodging but failed in blocking the follow-up afterward. Joe phased all over the place desperately looking for an opening unaware that his energy was still dropping after being in this rift for a period of time. Once his stamina dropped, he became a sitting duck for the Darkest Hell as it unleashed a barrage of laser fire on 009 sending him down on a lone plateau, weary and damaged through the battle.
Meanwhile on Earth, Red Ranger explained what to Black Ghost and Cyborg 009 in space. Jet was furious for what 009’s actions.

“So…let’s get this straight, Joe is out there taking on Hell alone? If he is thinking of doing a kamikaze up there, he must be out his damn mind!”

Geronimo sat calmly listening in to everyone’s concern about 009’s situation and slowly raising his hand and opening his eyes.
“Protecting Earth at the cost of his life…he may or not die. Quickly, everyone form a circle around me.”
They formed a circle clasping their hands together around Geronimo as their energies combined and using 005 as the vessel, they sent their energies to the fallen 009. Just as Darkest Hell charged up his ultimate attack for the deathblow, a beam broke through the rift and engulfed 009 in a protective shield as he felt an overwhelming power revitalizing and reinforcing him as he grew to the size of his enemy.

“WHAT IS THIS?! THE LIGHT! IT BURNS!!”
009 unleashed a giant sword from the galaxy and gleamed at he brought it close to deliver the final blow.

“No matter what form you may take, evil must be…DESTROYED!”

With a master-less slash, the Darkest Hell into pieces turning his back from the blast once the rift opened and everyone’s energy returned. It wasn’t too long as 009 spiraled fast into Earth’s atmosphere as a glimmer of light appeared into the sky and fell faster.

“LOOK! It’s…!”
“JOE!!!”
Jet ran off breaking through the window pushing his afterburners at max catching 009 upon impact. Joe became unconscious while Jet was nearly out of control as his jets couldn’t stop at will. Joe suddenly awakened up at Jet being unconsciousness nodding to him respectfully.

“Well if you go again, we go in a blaze of glory…”

Ivan quickly dispatched Pyunma to take to the sea and rescue them upon their impact. Using whatever was left of his power, Joe narrowed his eyes weakly slowing time down as they splashed down upon impact. As they descended, Pyunma caught them as they were brought back to land.

“Heh…Just be glad I’m here this time guys…”

Sometime later, everyone was pleased seeing 009 back alive and well. With his uniform in tatters and torn, he smiled through the overwhelming pain he was feeling in his joints but relieved to know that the long war is over. The world is once again free and at last at peace thanks to the combined efforts of the Tokusatsu 28.

“Everyone, thank you for your help. We can all rest easy now.”

Jiro along with his brothers smiled to Joe just before their departure.

“Hey, we’re all friends here. You can always count on us.” Ichiro added with a nod. “Damn straight, Joe. If you need us, we’ll be there.” Ray grinned with a wink, “Just give us a call AHEAD of time okay?”
Kamen Rider shook Inazuman’s, JAKQ and the Gorangers’ hands thanking them for their efforts as well. Finally he approached 009 with a handshake in friendship and saluted him just before leaping onto Cyclone.
“And now my friends, we must depart back in the shadows of society. Until the next time we lift our masks for justice again.” Rider slowly changed back into his civilian identity of Hongo Takeshi with a smile.

“May the wind always guide you Cyborg Senshi…”

Their bikes roared as they vanished into the sunset without a trace.

Today the world has witnessed a new legend. These heroes, almost forgotten by time united once again for one solitary purpose: Freedom for all life and for the future that is to come. If any threat dares to threaten the freedom of life, they will be there and leading them into the field of battle will be one man:
CYBORG 009!
