Story By Steve Wang, Nathan Long and Michael Wang

Summary: Kamen Rider Thrust returns to Earth and transforms to Brad Barrett...

Flashback: Brad Barrett's defending his amazing win streak of Motocross. Brad Barrett and Joe Stephens are in the lead. Joe Stephens almost ends Brad's winning streak, but he goes down, and Brad Barrett wins again. Later, Paul shows Brad a video recorded of what looks to be Brad messing with Joe's motorcycle, then explains that if Joe didn't lose control and crash, Brad would have come in second. Brad swears that it's not him in that video, but the person in the video is wearing his custom made jacket. Brad explains that him and Joe were bros, and he would never hurt Joe. Paul tells Brad that he's not getting his trophy, and he needs to give the prize money back. Paul then explains that Joe's not gonna file charges, but Paul has to notify the state commission, Brad's career is over and will never race again.

Xaviax (human form) reveals to Brad video evidence that could prove it wasn't him and save his career. Brad realizes that he set him up. Xaviax tells Brad that he runs a little tournament called Battle Club, then tells him that if he wins the tournament he will give him the video. Kamen Rider Strike appears and defeats two minions. Xaviax gives Brad an Advent Deck to become Kamen Rider Thrust.

...Kit and Maya ask Len why Xaviax has to trick the Riders into fighting for him and why doesn't he just get the biggest, baddest, toughest criminals out there and give them the Advent Decks. Len shows them a picture of himself with someone who looks exactly like Kit (and a third character in the background). Len explains that it's a picture of him and Adam, the original Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. Len explains that the Kamen Riders of Earth are the mere twins of the original Kamen Riders on Ventara, and the Advent Decks were created for one person only, so only someone with an exact DNA match can use it. Kit wonders where Xaviax is in his story, Len tells him that he's there somewhere. They hear a portal, but Len is too hurt from his last fight so Kit goes out alone.

Brad calls Charlie(Xaviax) and informs him that he's actually enjoyed the Battle Club fight. Brad hears a portal and says that he's going to try another Rider. Charlie tells Brad to stick with Wing Knight, he is his assigned opponent for the first round, but Brad rides off to battle anyways. Dragon Knight intercepts a minion, then Thrust shows up and wants to fight Dragon Knight. But first, Thrust strikes the minion with his gauntlet, the minion is hit out a window, and it survives the attack. Thrust just wants to fight Dragon Knight, but Dragon Knight goes after the minion. Dragon Knight strikes the minion with his Drag Saber many times, but this minion just won't stay down. So Dragon Knight uses Final Vent, and the minion is finally destroyed. A sphere appears from the defeated minion, and the Dragon absorbs it.

Xaviax is angry with Drew for trying to Vent Dragon Knight and explains to him that as long as Wing Knight survives, nobody touches Dragon Knight. Xaviax tells Kamen Rider Strike to watch Drew, and enjoy his evening.

Maya returns to the book store, Trent and Grace were worried that something might have happened to her. Maya tells Trent that she will explain later, but right now she's waiting for someone who she finds is already there waiting for her, JTC. Maya has to watch the store for Grace, so they can't leave. Trent can't watch the store for her tonight because he's having people come over to play Dungeons & Dragons.

Kit visits his dad at the hospital. He wonders who really gave him the Deck, his dad or Xaviax.

JTC shows Maya some pictures from an FBI Computer he hacked that were too hot to e-mail, pictures of Kamen Rider Sting. JTC explains that all the file said was that these were taken in the Gramercy Hights area over the past month, and ever since he showed up, the number of disappearances in that area dropped to zero. JTC asks Maya to call her James.

Dragon Knight and Thrust fight a squid monster. Thrust uses "Final Vent" (with 5,000 Attack Points). Metalgelas (Advent Beast) is summoned, Thrust jumps, Metalgelas rushes towards its opponent while pushing Thrust forward, and Thrust uses his Metal Horn gauntlet as they ram and destroy the monster. Thrust then attacks Dragon Knight and wants some answers.

James leaves the shop, Xaviax says well done, Kamen Rider Strike.
