The Showdown Clash (激突大勝負 Gekitotsu Ōshōbu) is the forty-sixth episode of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. It is the second part of Shinkenger's five-part endgame.


With no other purpose left, Takeru begins his climactic showdown with Juzo, while Hikoma tries to find him to remind him of the bonds he still possesses.


As Takeru fights Juzo now that he has no more purpose in life as a stand in for Kaoru, Genta tells Jii as they attempt to find Takeru. Though the vassals offer to help, Jii apologizes for deceiving them and explains to an annoyed Tanba that he will see Takeru as his Lord. Jii finds him as he watches Shinken Red fighting Juzo and attempts to intervene. On the Rokumon Junk, Shitari risks his own life to empower Oborojime in order to increase the human suffering to speed up Dokoku's reawakening. Alerted to his presence, the Shinkengers arrive as Shinken Gold is overpowered by Oborojime.

After managing to slay him with the Super Mougyu Bazooka, as Genta looks on in frustration, the Shinkengers use Tenku-Shinkenoh to destroy the powered-up Oborojime. However, the Ayakashi is revived into a more powerful form and Samuraihaoh is formed to battle it. Elsewhere, Jii explains to Takeru that while he raised him to be the kagemusha, he refuses to break his word to Takeru's father that he would look after his son. By then, Juzo arrives as Takeru resumes the fight against Jii's pleas. After the Shinkengers finally manage to destroy Oborojime, the vassals learn from Genta and Jii about Takeru's duel against Juzo. As the others run off, with a confused Ryunosuke remaining behind, Shinken Red and Juzo's duel reaches its climax.
