NOTE: Plot was arranged in descending order according to the time before Global Freeze.
12 hours before Global Freeze
Shinnosuke awakens from a dream inside a patrol car with Hayase. In his dream, they finally pursued Neo-Shade but somehow he wasn't able to move. As reported, the Neo-Shade had caused five explosions, resulting in countless casualties.
10 hours before Global Freeze
Nine monstrous figures known as Roidmudes gathered in a meeting where their leader announced that it was time for a "revolution". A bomb threat had been posted by Neo-Shade, showing a Kyouhei TV reporter held as a hostage. Many bombs have been planted inside the city and the only way to stop them is to pay 5 billion yen in cash. The duo suspected that their current modus operandi was similar to past cases but this was the first time they kidnapped a hostage. Suddenly, they spotted a mirror in the video and discovered that it was not Neo-Shade, but a Copycat Pirate posing as them.
Approximately 7 hours before Global Freeze
Hayase intruded the Copycat Pirate's hideout and faced him. He revealed that in the past few months, a lot of kidnappings, attempted murders and robberies have been committed by the criminal in pirate costume. The pirate criminal always posted his recordings onto the internet, alarming the public. However, those crimes were plagiarised from similar cases in the past. In his current operation, posing as "Neo-Shade", he used the terrorist group's first hideout. Shinnosuke then ambushed and unmasked him, revealing his identity as criminologist Koya Nishihori. Nishihori vowed to enact his revenge on the two who had humiliated him. All of a sudden, Roidmude 005, who was watching from a distance, smoke-screened them with a series of blasts and Nishihori escaped.
4 hours before Global Freeze
Nishihori escaped the warehouse but a strange wave was released, slowing his physical actions but his mind remained intact. Roidmude 005 copied his human form and dropped him from a great height, but a black warrior caught him seconds later. The warrior fought 005 and destroyed him but its core survived. Nonetheless, 005's Viral Core was picked up by the warrior, and Nishihori was finally arrested by Shinnosuke.
1 hour before the Global Freeze
In the Roidmude's base, a Bat-Class Roidmude reported to his leader that 005 was signal lost, signifying Krim Steinbelt's involvement. After repairing 005's Viral Core, the black warrior witnessed the Roidmudes' plans which involved the destruction of the world and their total number is 108. As the Roidmudes' grand plan was about to begin, the Drive Driver sent his army of Shift Cars worldwide. At the same time, the real Neo-Shade was reported and among their hostages were an important politician, stationing themselves in a building as the two policemen drove to the location.
10 minutes before the Global Freeze
An evacuation on the building was carried out as Shinnosuke and Akira rushed themselves inside. Shinnosuke ran past a policewoman that he would meet months later.
A strange wave affected the worldwide population which slowed down everyone's movements with their mind remaining intact. During this time, an army of Roidmudes marched their way into the city and terrorized the whole area. At the same time, police officer Shinnosuke Tomari and Akira Hayase were apprehending criminals from Neo-Shade. Hayase was cornered near a flammable generator by one of the two criminals. Panicking, Shinnosuke pulled out his gun and tried to aim at the criminal, but due to the Slowdown effect, he accidentally shot the generator, causing it to explode and in the process, causing some pipes to collapse. As he tried to save Hayase from the falling pipes, the Slowdown effect happened once again, causing him to be unable to save his partner from being crushed. The black warrior from before approached three Roidmudes and began to fight them. It was then revealed that he was named Protodrive, as Shinnosuke narrated that he would continue his legacy as the new Kamen Rider, Drive.
