The Birthday Celebration (誕生日のお祝いは Tajōbi no Oiwai wa) is the thirtieth episode of Ressha Sentai ToQger. This episode marks the debut of Mio and Kagura as Hyper ToQ 3gou and Hyper ToQ 5gou respectively.
Kagura regains a memory that it is Mio's birthday today and plans to bake her a cake and throw her a surprise party, but while she is baking the other ToQgers are attacked by Wig Shadow whose wigs will kill them once a bird hatches from a nest on the top of their heads.
After waking up from a dream, Kagura regains a memory that September 28 is Mio's birthday and she tells the others that she wants to throw Mio a surprise party. Kagura proceeds to bake a cake, but the others find it tastes plain. She decides to go to the Kazu Bakery to learn how to properly bake a cake, and convinces the head baker Airi to train her. Elsewhere, the male members cover for Kagura's absence, but must now deal with the Shadow Creep Wig Shadow before he places his Bird Nest Wigs that will kill them if they are unable to care for the chicks on their heads. Though Kagura is worried for them, Hikari and Tokatti convince her to focus on her baking lesson. After finishing her cake while Airi tells her what is truly important about baking a cake, Kagura runs into Wig Shadow but the cake ruined by the Shadow Creep's attack. The other ToQgers arrive yet are unable to fight, forcing ToQ 5gou to fight Wig Shadow on her own before the Shadow Creep gains the upper hand. Things seem hopeless until the ToQgers' shadow chicks grow up into shadow chickens that attack Wig Shadow before running off. Though Wig Shadow attempts to sneak off, ToQ 5gou refuses to let him escape as she uses the Hyper Ressha to change into Hyper ToQ 5gou, but ToQ 3gou is caught in the transformation and two are joined by the Hyper Ressha armor. ToQ 5gou explains that appearances are not everything as the female Hyper ToQgers double team Wig Shadow before defeating him with the Hyper 5 Connection Crash and then use Cho Cho ToQ-DaiOh to destroy him. Later, Mio's surprise birthday commences without a hitch.
