|This article is about a/an episode in Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season Tsuu.|
Delusional Cemetery (妄想墓地 Mōsō Bachi) is the eleventh episode of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2.
The Akibarangers confront ©Na, who has remodeled the entire reality to become the star of her own franchise in place of the Super Sentai, in the Delusion World.
Bailed out to the real world, the Akibarangers are informed by Hakase that the entire "Super Sentai Series" franchise was altered to become the "Super ©Na Series", with each series ending with the Sentai heroes defeated by the villains led by ©Na, transforming the Himitsukichi into a memorial service for them.
Nobuo and the others then return to face her in the Delusion World, where she finally has them remember what really happened during the first season. She also reveals that by reaching Saburo Hatte's dimension, she managed to inspire him to create a second season for the series, but she got angry upon losing her position as the main villain once again with the advent of Tsu Shogun, and after disposing of him, she used the knowledge she obtained to assume control of all the Super Sentai villains and defeat the official heroes.
Upon being offered a chance to become her eternal enemies and fight her indefinitely just like she promised them in the end of the first season, the Akibarangers refuse and Delu-Knight fights them instead. However, even after Delu-Knight triggers several defeat flags by ©Na's request, the unofficial heroes fail to defeat him with the Ludicrous Cannon Bazooka and are forced to flee. Recognizing that ©Na is now invincible, the Akibarangers give up on fighting her. Meanwhile in his reality, Saburo Hatte finds himself in a critical state and ©Na attempts to save him, fearing what may happen should he dies.
A hopeless Nobuo shuts himself in his closet until he learns that Yumeria and Luna returned to confront Delu-Knight, but he proves to be too strong for them. However, Akiba Red figures out ©Na's trick and joins the fight, triggering several defeat flags that instead of leading to his downfall, allow him to triumph over Delu-Knight, as he realized that by ©Na's influence, the effect of victory and defeat flags in the Delusional World were reversed.
As the Akibarangers prepare themselves to the final battle against ©Na, Hakase remembers the truth about her and Kozukozu watches in shock as she suffers a strange transfomation with the scorpion mark crawling all the way up to her head.
