Recap / Kamen Rider Ex Aid Ep 37 Resolution Of The White Knight

Go To

Written by Yuya Takahashi
Directed by Satoshi Morota

Ex-Aid finally went Muteki and was able to beat Cronus! Masamune, who does not like the fact that Ex-Aid was able to attain a power that exceeded his control, angrily forces Hiiro to work for him as he claims Saki as a hostage! Brave forcibly renews his resolution, and this time he is able to transform into Legacy Gamer Level 100! Emu is more confused than ever, while Taiga is the only one who truly understands just how painful Hiiro's decision truly is.


Episode Tropes:

  • Can't Live Without You: A non-lethal example. Masamune theorized if Emu's Bugster (Parado) is destroyed, the virus within him will be removed along with his ability to become Ex-Aid.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: There are a ton in this episode;
    • Legacy Gamer Level 100 Vs. Perfect Knockout Gamer. Legacy Gamer is clearly stronger.
    • Muteki Gamer Vs. Kaiden Bugster. It isn't really much of a fight since Muteki Ex-Aid is so powerful.
    • Level 99 Graphite Vs. Level 50 Simulation Gamer. Graphite bests Taiga.
  • Downer Ending: Taiga ends up being hospitalized after losing to Graphite and is in a critical condition, which serves as a catalyst for Hiiro's Heel Realization.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: In the climax of this episode, Emu learns that Hiiro is about to kill Parardo any moment (effectively losing the ability to become Ex-Aid, as Masamune theorized), but he wants to at least make sure he gets the Master Gashat version of Kamen Rider Chronicle while he still has the chance needed to save those who succumbed to the Bugster Virus. Kiriya convinces him to go to Hiiro and stop him otherwise.

  • Heel Realization: Things are not looking good for Hiiro as his deal with Masamune might've potentially costed Taiga's life. Hiiro feels guilty about this.
  • No-Sell: Continuing from last episode, Muteki Ex-Aid's invincibility is shown more when Kaiden's slash against him doesn't even faze him (it almost looks like Ex-Aid is FlashStepping towards him). Even Ex-aid is surprised how powerful his new abilities are.
  • Pet the Dog: Hiiro is genuinely disturbed at the end result of his and Taiga's fight against Parado and Graphite, running away out of shame.
  • Reality Ensues: Getting punched in the stomach by something whose punches and kicks are measured in tons worth of impact and sent flying a good distance would be a minor problem for a Kamen Rider. Taiga was untransformed at the time, so it leaves him in critical condition and coughing up blood.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: How Muteki Ex-Aid fight against Kaiden Bugster ends. Kaiden begins to mock Ex-Aid's swordsmanship, unitl Ex-Aid says Your Game is Already Over.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Guess who?
  • Wham Episode: Taiga Hanaya... is dying.

    Gashat Count: Ex-Aid: 9 Snipe: 3 (Continue?) Lazer: 10 Genm: 2 Poppy: 1 Nico: 1 Para-DX: 1 Brave: 5 Cronus: 2
    Gashatrophies Collected: Gamer Riders: 9 Genm Corp.: 1
    Genm's Continues Left: 94

How well does it match the trope?
