Ryotaro Nogami is a young man with a lot of bad luck. One day, he finds a strange pass and things got stranger when he meets a mysterious girl and a time-traveling train to being owned by an entities called Imagin, beings from an alternate future whose are attempting to change the past. Though slightly confused about the nature of the crisis, Ryotaro, along with the aid of the hot-headed, violent Imagin, Momotaros, becomes Kamen Rider Den-O, traveling to different times on the DenLiner to battle the evil Imagin to prevent them from altering the past and affect the present and future. During his adventure, Ryotaro is joined by other Imagin who aid him as well such as the lying and womanizing Urataros, the herculean and narcoleptic Kintaros, and the childish yet powerful Ryutaros. He later meets the mysterious Yuto Sakurai and his bumbling Imagin partner Deneb. Yuto is not only Kamen Rider Zeronos but is the younger incarnation of Ryotaro's older sister Airi's fiance, Sakurai, who mysteriously disappeared and is tied to the mysteries involving the Imagin and a person known as the Junction Point.
As Ryotaro eventually discovers that the Junction Point is the unborn child of Airi and Sakurai, Ryotaro discovers that they had sacrificed their love and marriage for the sake of their child through Airi's ownership of the ZeroLiner and that their child is none other than Ryotaro's travelling companion Hana (who has been de-aged and become known as Kohana). Ryotaro, the Taros, Yuto, and Deneb work together to save Hana and defeat Kai, ensuring that the Imagin will never exist. As Ryotaro begin to lament that he will never see the Taros again, they (along with Sieg and Deneb) make themselves known, having been saved due to their time with the Kamen Riders. The Owner tells Ryotaro that his work is done, and Ryotaro gladly relinquishes the Rider Pass, knowing that he will meet the Taros in the future.
