Is Kamen Rider Lazer Turbo’s identity Kiriya Kujo (Hayato Onozuka)? Emu (Hiroki Iijima) knows that Kiriya tried to eradicate the Bugster Virus, and is positive he would never ally himself with Masamune.
As such, he refuses to believe Kiriya has been revived.
Lazer Turbo appears again before Ex-Aid and the others. He overpowers Ex-Aid and Genm and knocks them out of their transformation. He is revealed to be Kiriya indeed.
Why is Kiriya supporting Masamune? Emu presses for answers, but Kiriya simply praises the power of Kamen Rider Chronicle. Kiriya sounds like a different person than who he was before he was killed.
It’s at this time that Pallad (Shouma Kai) and his allies prepare to overthrow Kamen Rider Cronus.
