Characters either belong to BVE/VRP or to Toei/TV-Asahi.
Note: This is a slight crossover between PRDT and another
series, though the nature of the guest makes this more of a PRDT fic
with an extra character than a true crossover. Thank you to Nalanzu for

There's a little side-story that I'll put on a different page.
"Hayley, what is that?" Conner asked as the four teens and one adult
sat in the basement of Tommy Oliver's basement.
Hayley paused. "Well, if I can get it to work... this might shut down
Mesogog's Invisiportal network."
"Which means no more random Tyrannodrones, right?" Kira asked. She
brushed a lock of hair from her face as her teammate, Trent, smiled.
"Right," Hayley said absently.
"All right!" Ethan cheered as he crowded Hayley at the computer console.
"Can we reactivate it if we need to, though?" Trent asked. "In case we
need to get to Mesogog?"
Hayley nodded. "The idea is to be able to shut them down and shunt
control over to us," she responded.
"At least if this works," she said, biting her lip as she punched a
final sequence in.
"So," Kira prodded. "When are you going to test it?"
Hayley sighed. "No time like the present."
Tommy sat down by her. "You don't have to try this if you're not
ready," he said softly. "We have time."
"I know, but..." Hayley looked. "If we can finish Mesogog off, then
everything will return to normal."
"Or at least as normal as anything gets around here," Ethan said. "I
mean, this isn't exactly Normalville."
"Dude, it was pretty normal before Mesogog came," Conner pointed out.
"Before this, all I had to worry about was being scouted, not having
some Dino-mutant want to tear my guts out because of a gem."
"You've got a point," Ethan said. "I could have done without Meso-freak
"Me three," Kira said, echoed by Trent a moment later.
"So?" Ethan asked impatiently.
Hayley sighed. "Here goes." She typed a series of commands into the
Nothing seemed to happen, and then, after a few seconds, the alarm
started to ring.
"Guess it didn't work," Conner said, obviously disappointed.
"Hayley, what and where?" Tommy asked her.
Hayley typed rapidly into the computer. "It's just north of here... but
it's not like any portal I've ever seen."
"Does it really matter?" Conner asked. "Let's get out there!"
"Right," Tommy said, initiating the morphing call. They were soon out
in the middle of the forest, Trent riding behind Tommy on his Raptor
When they reached the site of the disturbance, however, there was
nothing there but an wild-haired asian teenager dressed in a stylish
jacket over a tank top. He was grinning wolfishly as he slammed a
rectangular object to his waist. The rectangular box secured itself to
his waist as his grin became even wider.
"Hold it right there!" Kira called.
The teenager's grin faded. "Henshin," he said, almost sullenly, sliding
the circular decoration apart to reveal a stylized club-card design in
A mechanized voice intoned "Open up" as a purplish field sprang up in
front of the teenager. As he passed through it, he became a
green-and-gold suited figure in some kind of spider motif.
"Ore wa saikyou no Raidaa da yo!" the teenager screamed as he barreled
down towards them, swinging his staff towards Conner.
"Yeah, you're definitely psycho," Conner muttered as he dodged the
attack. The other four Rangers got off their Raptor Riders, and the
"We won't hurt you!" Kira called to the uniformed figure. "Please,
"Somehow, I don't think he's listening," Conner grunted as he dodged
another blow from the teenager's staff.
Indeed, if the teenager had heard Kira's words, he was ignoring them.
Tommy deflected another blow with his own weapon.
Kira parried the next attack. "Hey, you," she said, trying to disarm
him. "We're not the bad guys here!"
"Yeah, he is," Conner pointed out. "He's the one who attacked us."
"Ore wa saikyou no raidaa da yo!" the teenager screamed once more,
knocking Kira out of the way and going after Trent.
"Knock him out first, talk sense later," Tommy said. "I don't think
he's going to listen, at least probably without a translator."
"Right, Dr. O," Trent said, rapidly drawing some arrows and firing them
in the teenager's direction. The teenager ducked them and pulled two
cards out of a case on his belt, running them through one end of his
staff. "Blizzard Crush" echoed out of the device as the teenager ran
towards him again, launching himself in the air and kicking. An ice
storm seemed to preceed his attack, and Trent was frozen in place for a
moment before the armored figure performed a crushing kick, knocking
him solidly to the ground.
With one enemy down, the teenager seemed to remember his original
target, Conner. He charged towards him with the staff fully extended.
"Super Dino Mode!" Conner called in response. He braced himself for the
other teenager's attack, managing to grab him and throw him into a
The belt flew off the teenager, causing the same purple window to
descend on him and change him out of his armored form. He got up
slowly, his eyes on the boxy device, but Tommy scooped it up first.
"I'm holding on to this."
"Beruto o kaese!"
They didn't have a chance to try to figure out what that meant, as an
Invisiportal chose that moment to flare into life, depositing Elsa and
Zeltrax into the clearing. "Hand over the boy," Elsa demanded.
"No way," Tommy said. "He's coming with us."
The teenager let off a soft growl, the box reappearing in his hand, and
swiftly applied it back to his waist. The next thing anybody knew, he
was back in his armored form, swinging at Zeltrax and Elsa. "So, do we
attack him, help him, or cheer him on?" Ethan asked.
"He is acting a little like Trent," Kira mused. "When he was evil, I
"Gee, thanks," Trent responded wryly, managing to get up from where the
teenager had knocked him over.
"Kira's right," Tommy said. "When Trent was still evil, he was
attacking both sides too, at least at first."
"So you think he's possessed, Dr. O?" Ethan asked.
"Could be," Tommy said noncommittally.
"His gear probably speaks better English that he does, anyway," Conner
In the meantime, it appeared that the teenager was handily dealing with
both Elsa and Zeltrax. "I'm gonna go help him," Kira announced, running
The teenager swiped one of his cards and attempted to run Zeltrax
through with his staff. As Zeltrax reeled from the blow, the teenager
swung to face Kira. "Ore no eimono da!" He swatted at her with his
staff before turning his attentions back to Elsa and Zeltrax.
"Ooookay," Kira said, backing off. He seemed to have things well in
After a few more minutes, the villainous duo decided that they'd had
enough, leaving the Rangers to deal with the still-armored teenager.
"Figures," Ethan muttered as the expressionless armor seemed to glare
at them, as if debating whether to attack them again.
Instead, he walked off, still armored, with a gait that suggested he
had far better things to do with his time.
"What was all that about?" Ethan asked. He looked at Trent.
"Don't look at me," Trent responded quickly. "I'm a chameleon, not a
"Yeah, but you've been evil," Kira said. "You might be able to figure
Trent nodded. "I… guess I can." He paused. "Well, as much as I
The Rangers returned to the lab, chatting among themselves. As they
entered, two figures sat near the main computer console. "Cam," Tommy
asked, "what are you doing here?"
"I asked him to come," Hayley explained. Cam was still in the outfit he
wore at the Wind Ninja Academy, suggesting the speed in which he had to
have come. "That teenager? He's speaking Japanese."
"Which I speak," Cam said.
"Make any sense out of him?" Conner asked.
"Not much," Cam admitted. "Just that he's the greatest of the Riders,
you had his belt, and that Kira was stepping in where she wasn't
"He made the last part kinda obvious," Ethan pointed out.
"Rider?" Tommy said, looking thoughtful.
Cam nodded. "That's what he was saying he was."
"Does that stir any memories, Dr. O?" Kira asked.
"Well, there was a guy named Dex that I met… but he was from another
planet, and he was a good guy. I didn't get the impression that there
were Riders on Earth."
"Which means he's probably not from this Earth," Ethan pointed out.
"The belt… that makes sense. Dex's morpher rested in his belt," Tommy
"So, he's like this Dex?" Conner asked, trying to remember if Dex had
appeared in the history video.
"I'm not sure," Tommy admitted. "It's something that we'll have to ask
"One more thing," Kira said. "Don't Japanese people know how to speak
Cam shrugged. "I've met Japanese people who speak excellent English,
but most people? Not really."
"So, in other words, we can't communicate with him, and as far as he's
concerned, everybody's his enemy," Ethan summarized.
"And we can't communicate with him to tell him we're the good guys."
"Does he even know what good guys are?" Conner asked, looking at Trent.
Trent shrugged. "When you're evil, you know the good guys are, and who
the bad guys are. You just don't care."
"That's how I felt, as well," Tommy said.
Conner gave a slight nod. "All right," he said. "So, how do we get this
guy and shut him down? I so do not need a repeat of Trent right now."
"I don't need a repeat of me right now," Trent said.
"Me three," Ethan said.
"So," Kira said, "How do we stop this guy and get him back to Japan, or
whatever Japan he comes from?"
"That's a problem," Tommy admitted. "He can summon his belt to him."
"Hey, I bet he can't if he's unconscious," Ethan said brightly. "It's
kinda a plot device."
"So, grab him, get his belt away from him, and let Hayley get the
portal to open up," Conner decided.
"Or let Cam talk to him," Kira pointed out.
"He's not gonna care, Kira," Trent said. "Trust me."
Kira glanced at Cam, who seemed absorbed in the Lab's computer systems.
"He has to. If he's like you, he can't be that bad, really."
Trent blushed a little. "And what if he isn't a good guy, if he's not
possessed, or if he wasn't a good guy in the first place?"
"He has to be," Kira said. "I mean, he's acting kinda like you were."
"In any case," Tommy interrupted, "We'd better go find him and bring
"Cam and I will monitor the battle," Hayley said, getting up and
joining Cam at the console.
Tommy nodded in her direction, and then turned to his teammates.
"Ready?" he asked.
"Baaaka." The armored figure was leaning against a tree when the five
of them rode up. The helmet turned incrementally towards them, and then
he resumed staring at nothing in particular. He lazily straightened up,
looking at all of them once more, as if measuring their abilities.
"Did he just call us fish?" Conner demanded.
"Sounds like it," Ethan replied.
"Cam, translation?" Tommy pressed.
"He thinks you're idiots, and he's willing to fight you to prove his
"You got all of that out of one word?" Conner asked, amazed.
"Two," Cam corrected.
The teenager charged at them, staff at the ready.
"Yep, he's definitely willing to fight," Trent noted wryly.
"Guys! Defensive positions!" Tommy called.
As the five of them prepared to withstand the green-and-gold clad
teenager's assault, he came upon them, swinging his staff in Conner's
"Hey," Conner said, dodging out of the way and swinging with his own
weapon, "What's the matter, you got staff envy?"
The helmet regarded him coldly, neatly dodging Conner's own swing and
following it up with blocking Kira's attack.
"Hey, don't take it personally," Kira said, "But we have to stop you."
Tommy nodded. "We've got to knock his belt off and knock him
"Right," Conner said, Ethan nodding.
Trent drew a volley of arrows and sent them in the other teenager's
direction. The teenager batted them away, and as if Trent was a bee
that had tried to sting him, ran towards him, staff pointed towards him.
"Oh, no you don't!" Kira announced, using her pteragrips to strike at
him and gain his attention.
"We have so got to get this guy to stop fighting," Conner said.
"Hey, why don't we distract him," Ethan said, "And you knock him over
Conner shrugged. "It's worth a try."
"And if that doesn't work, maybe Dr. O can earthquake him or
something," Kira pointed out as she dealt with the teenager's assault.
Ethan charged him, getting his attention away from Kira. "You know,
there's a good thing about him not knowing English," he said.
"What's that?" Trent asked.
"We can talk about plans, and he doesn't have a clue," Ethan said. The
teenager swept at Ethan's shoulder. "Conner, any time now!"
"Right," Conner said. He hefted the Tyrannostaff and hit the other
teenager over the head.
The teenager staggered a bit, but didn't go down. "So much for that
plan," Ethan said. "Dr. O?"
"Right," Tommy said. He rushed at the teenager, but the teenager
dodged. However, Trent rushed shortly after, catching the teenager by
surprise. His rush tossed the teenager into a tree, once again causing
the belt to fly off.
As the teenager's transformation faded, the Rangers looked at each
other. "So, what do we do next?" Trent asked.
"I really kinda don't want to knock him out," Kira replied. "Can't we
tie his hands or anything?"
"That might be an option," Tommy responded. "But we don't have any
"That's out," Ethan said.
"Hit him over the head?" Conner asked, not sounding overly happy about
"I guess," Kira said leerily.
Conner took a deep breath and beaned the teenager over the head lightly
with his staff. "We take him back now?"
Tommy nodded, hefting the unconscious form onto his Raptor Rider.
"He's coming around." Kira watched as the other teenager woke up, his
wrists straining against the rope that bound them. None of them wanted
a repeat of his last performance. "Hi, what's your name?"
He stared uncomprehendingly at her.
"Oh, yeah, no English," she reminded herself. "Cam?"
Cam came over and sat down. "What?"
"Could you ask him what his name is?"
Nodding tersely, Cam translated.
"Kamijou Mutsuki," the teenager spat out.
"Is that his name?" Kira asked.
"So, the guy's name is Kamijou?"
"Mutsuki," Ethan corrected. "Don't you know anything about Japanese
"Um," Conner said. "I know the peoples' names on that show." He
motioned very vaguely in the direction of Hayley's Cyberspace.
"Family names first, given names last," Cam said absently, before
switching back to Japanese. "Kega suru tsumori wa nakatta."
Mutsuki snarled. "Nee yo!"
"Huh?" Conner asked.
"I told him we mean him no harm, and he said he wasn't hurt," Cam said.
"Maybe his pride was hurt," Kira said, looking at Mutsuki. "If that
doesn't sound like male teenage ego, then I'll..."
Mutsuki glared in their general direction, despite seeming not to
understand her words.
"I'm going to tell him we want to send him home." Cam translated his
"Uso tsuku na!"
Kira looked at Cam, who sighed. "He doesn't believe us."
"Tell him that we're the Rangers, the good guys," Kira said.
"Dakara nanda?" Mutsuki asked, still looking suspicious.
"He's never heard of Rangers," Cam said, before they had a chance to
"Maybe you can explain us?" Trent asked.
"I can try," Cam said, before launching into a long string of sentences
Mutsuki seemed to listen boredly. After Cam had finished, he merely
said, "Sou da. Raidaa da yo."
"I take it he's not buying it," Conner said.
"He still thinks you're 'Riders'," Cam said. "Whatever that means."
Mutsuki smirked. "Ore wa saikyou no raidaa da yo."
Cam rolled his eyes. "And he thinks he's the best Rider."
"Maybe you can point out to him that he's the one in the handcuffs?"
Mutsuki snarled something after Cam translated Conner's words.
"I guess that's a touchy point," Trent said.
"He's saying that it took five of you to defeat him," Cam told Conner.
"And he's still better than you."
"Definitely arrogant," Ethan said.
"Hayley, you got a way to get him back to where he belongs?" Conner
"Working on it," Hayley said, from where she and Tommy were working
"So... um... what do we do with him?" Kira asked. "I mean, we're not
getting through to him right now."
"Somebody should keep an eye on him," Conner replied. "I don't think
we're going to get through to him, Kira."
"I'll do it," Trent volunteered. "Maybe I can think of a way. Maybe
you're right, Kira, maybe he's like me."
Kira smiled at him.
Mutsuki started looking bored at that moment, but perked up as the
viewscreen flared to life.
The five Rangers started towards the viewscreen, completely forgetting
about their captive, who was straining to see the screen. "Gee," Conner
said sarcastically. "Let's guess why Mesogog's sending down a monster
now." He looked around. "You guys ready?"
"Ready!" four voices called, Trent's call forming a descant around the
Nobody noticed the activity behind them as the box silently teleported
back to its owner, and he subsequently twisted around, managing to
place a card in the box, and the box on his stomach. He grinned as the
box spoke in its mechanical voice, "Open Up".
The snap as the rope gave was enough signal for the other seven
inhabitants to look his way. With one final snarl, he slammed through
the secret door and ran off.
Stunned by what had just happened, the Rangers stared after him for a
second. "I'll grab him, you fight the monster," Trent called, looking
at the ajar door that Hayley and Tommy would probably have to fix. He
ran after the teenager.
Translation of the Japanese:
Ore wa saikyou no Raidaa da yo! - I am the best of the Riders!
Beruto o kaese! - Return the belt!
Ore no eimono da! - My prey! (slightly rude)
Baaaka. - Idiots.
Koi - Come! (very rude form)
Kega suru tsumori wa nakatta. - We don't intend to harm/hurt you.
Nee yo! - pretty much "I'm not hurt/I'm fine/I'm okay", though it's
more that he doesn't believe the Rangers can harm him.
Uso tsuku na! - You're lying!
Dakara nanda? - ?
Sou da. Raidaa da yo. - I see. You're Riders.
