In the previous fight with Lovelica Bugster (Ren Amagasaki), Emu Houjou (Kamen Rider Ex-Aid) had sighted the Smile on Poppi Pipopapo's (Kamen Rider Poppy) Face when Taiga Hanaya (Kamen Rider Snipe) & Nico Saiba (Ride-Player Nico) reconciled.
Emu had realized that there was a change in Poppy who was reset to evil by Lovelica Bugster. It's true that he had been attacked by Kamen Rider Poppy but for some reason Emu can't consider Poppy as a Evil Bugster. He wants to believe that Poppy still has a good part remaining inside her.
Poppy Pipopapo appears before Emu as the Navigator of Kamen Rider Chronicle. Poppy decides to punish the Rider who had violated the rules but Ex-Aid shouts to her "You weren't such person!". Can this shout bring a change in Poppy's feelings?
In order to save the Ride-Players, Emu decides to fight Poppy. He uses the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Maximum Gamer Level 99's ability of Reprogramming to reset Poppy's memory back to the original state. After regaining her memory about Emu she gets overwhelmed but Parado (Kamen Rider Para-DX) tries to forcibly back her to their side.
One of the Game Disease Patient is affected by Poppy's Virus. In order to save the patient they have to defeat Poppy. Emu gets puzzled after knowing about this. Hiiro Kagami (Kamen Rider Brave), Taiga & Nico transforms in order to defeat Poppy. Poppy had decided in her mind to be defeated as she considers herself the enemy of humanity but Emu appears there and tells Poppy that if you consider yourself as the enemy of humanity then defeat me.
What will be the fate of Poppy? Which side will she go?
On the other hand Hiiro Kagami (Kamen Rider Brave) who was fighting Parado with Emu had been obsessed with Parado's Aim.
