Alternatively, the GGG timeline is destroyed by Imagins. Nothing else needs to change.
- More evidence for this theory comes via Kamen Rider Decade: Decade's Complete Form has the power to summon duplicates of the other Riders in their own Super Modes. During the series, the Den-O button makes a Liner Form dupe, but in the Final Chapter movie it's switched over to Super Climax Form (just as Kuuga's Super Mode switches from Ultimate to Rising Ultimate).
- Fridge Brilliance may nullify this, when one remembers that the Den-O Liner Form seen in the Shinkenger crossover was a mindless puppet duplicate, specifically created by the K-Touch; where as the Super Climax Den-O in Final Chapter was actually Momotaros. What one must keep in mind is that Liner Form was made specifically because the Imagin couldn't be used. They were, however, available for the battle in Final Chapter, so the Super Mode changed to accomodate.
- Which means... to quote Narutaki: "It's Decade's fault."
- Which also might mean that the Neo-Fangire menace at Kamen Rider Kiva's ending are Dai Shocker Fangires.
- And this might mean that Ryotaro and Wataru already knew of Tsukasa's nature even before Kamen Rider Decade series started.
- Well, we already knew this to be the case with Wataru.
- Pretty much confirmed (in broad strokes) in the Cho Den-O Trilogy
- That image was a joke, made by the staff during the series' run; they also doctored images of a DenKamen Sword with Sieg's mask added, and a "Zero Vega" Form. Besides, giving control of the knees to other Imagin would render Ryutaros pretty well useless, since he's the one in charge of the legs in Climax Form as is.
- Not useless, just reduce him to a Chest Blaster.
- Kai is the progeny/protege of the Big Bad from that timeline, and his control over Imagin was engineered into him. His own related arc words are about how he was shoved into the timestream as a final gesture of spite by whoever turned him into a tykebomb. In many ways, he too is extremely idealistic in trying to get a better world.
- Urataros would be voiced by Jeff Bennett, in a reversal of what happened with Prowl for the Japanese dub of Transformers Animated.
- It makes sense. He complained about how heavy the Den-Kamen Sword was in-series, before the time warp. Obviously, in a younger state, he can't lift it at all.
- Jossed, sadly. Ryotaro didn't even appear - Momotaros was the one who transformed into Den-O, and Kotaro/New Den-O for all intents and purposes is the Den-O featured in the film.
- Because this page wasn't crazy enough already.
- Well, he's not in Movie Wars Megamax for one.
- I'd say "Taking a break" is more accurate, since he's only been in the Super Hero Taisen movies, and he didn't make any appearances in any movie involving Kamen Rider Ghost. Although rumors about Chou Super Hero Taisen say that Momotaros is going to be narrating the film...
- They've stopped making movies with Den-O as the main star, but as long as they keep making Super Hero Taisen movies, they'll keep Den-o in them. It seems that his role depends on the movie in question - GP 3: Kamen Rider 3 featured him in a rather minor role, while Chou Super Hero Taisen featured him as a major character.
However, Kai also uses some odd powers that no other human in Den-O has, like mind control, seeing into other peoples' memories, and creating portals to the past using his own body. Thus, he might be one of whatever Owner/Station Master are. He also just laughed when one character asked if he was human, so there's that.
Humanity controls the timeline because we overwrote the Imagin timeline with our own, exactly like what the Imagin are trying do. But before that, Imagin won control over the timeline by overwriting the human-controlled timeline. And before that, humanity won control over the timeline by overwriting the Imagin-controlled timeline, and so on and so forth.
When humans control the timeline, the Imagin are reduced to the sands of time, and must barter with humans in order to obtain physical forms. When Imagin control the timeline, the same is true for humans, only humans harness the power of the Imagin via the Rider System because we lack the same natural weaponry.
Overseeing the war are certain enigmatic figures who appear human but are decidedly something else. We know them as Kai, Owner, and Station Master. They represent different sides in the war: the reckless and childish Kai commands the Imagin directly, the eccentric Owner subtly influences the Riders who defend humanity, and the mysterious Station Master, who takes no sides but leans in favor of humanity. Neither humans nor Imagin realize who they truly are. They naturally exist within the desert of time, and either built or influenced the building of the time trains so prevalent in the series. They don't actually need the trains to travel through time, as Kai makes obvious. Rather, the trains are necessary to transport the timeline's defenders, whether human or Imagin.
Den-O is the climax and end of the war. With only a few Imagin left in existence (and most of those are friendly to humans), they no longer pose a threat to humanity's future. And aboard the King Liner, over a platter of fried rice, Owner smiles because his plan—the extermination of Kai and the Imagin—has finally come to fruition.
