He tries to distract her and the two disappear. She then sees his similar changer. Brother and sister pray at a shrine. She asks him what he is hiding, he denies it, she is worried if he is doing something dangerous. She tells him he can tell her anything because they are family. He hands her an envelope. He runs off.

And Meiko hears their voices and goes to investigate. They do their roll call. Meiko walks closer and hides. Yellow fights the monster first and they all engage. The monster blasts all 5 and then pans on them. Meiko recognizes the Changer on Yellow's arm as the Changer on her brother's arm. She links the two. Satorakura then blasts the five. Yellow notices Meiko and tries to get her to safety. She address him as brother. Kouta then arrives, confusing her. He speaks in a English-Japanese mix and drags her away. She trips. Satorakura blasts towards her but Yellow takes the blast. Shurikenger as Kouta tells Meiko to climb on his back and he takes her away. She looks back at her real brother. Yellow goes back to the battle. On the other side, Saandar has arrived. He uses the stone to suck the five's energy. Shurikenger as Kouta arrives and says Meiko is alright. Kouta thanks him. 'Kouta' then transforms into Shurikenger. The six are blasted down. The real Kouta realizes something about the foe's hands, he blasts the hands and takes Satorakuta down with his mallet. He then beats up the monster with the hammer. They destroy him with the Victory Gadget. He sizzles with energy before exploding. Meiko watches and smiles. Saandaru has collected energy, the stone glows. The stone explodes to reveal a sand dollar. The Raging Arrow Medal. Satorakura and Saandaru retreat. The monster grows and the three machine fight him. Tenraisempujin is formed, as Oboro has fixed Tricondor. They finish him off. Later at the airport, Kouta says goodbye to his sister.
