In time, other Armored Riders appear, all vying for social power throughout town, including Team Baron's leader Kaito Kumon as Armored Rider Baron, Kouta's Team Gaim teammate Mitsuzane Kureshima as Ryugen, Team Raid Wild's Ryoji Hase as Kurokage, the scheming Hideyasu Jonouchi of Team Invitto as Gridon, and the perfectionist ex-soldier Oren Pierre Alfonzo as Bravo. Unbeknownst to them is that Mitsuzane's older brother Takatora Kureshima, the head of R&D at the Yggdrasill Corporation, is the enigmatic white Armored Rider Zangetsu who is protecting a dark secret hidden in Helheim Forest at any cost while using them and Inves Games for research. Ultimately, when Kouta confronts Takatora as he and members of his company become New Generation Armored Riders Duke, Sigurd, and Marika, he learns the horrible truth of Helheim Forest: it was home to a once bustling civilization that was eradicated by the strange plants growing throughout it, as anyone who consumed the fruit of these plants was turned into an Inves. Finding an ally in DJ Sagara, a pirate radio DJ who covered the Beat Riders and is privy to knowledge about both Yggdrasill and Helheim, Kouta finds himself in the middle of a Sengoku period-like brawl among various factions for the right to possess the power of Helheim Forest and the fate of life on Earth as he knows it.
