I know it’s supposed to be epic, but there’s something really funny to me about seeing four Kamen Riders from different shows transform together.
Even before the real transformation begins, we have a guy who used to be a ghost and looks like a ninja/firebender, a neon-colored gamer/doctor, a... police officer?? Who’s really posing it up, by the way. And the actual wizard who looks nothing like a wizard and is instead wearing ripped, pink jeans.
And then there’s the music. Danny Phantom over here has this catchy chant coming out of his belt that’s all “AAAAYE!!” and “WATCH THIS! WATCH THIS!” (The latter of which is repeated through pretty much the whole sequence, by the way.)
Immediately the neon-colored doctor takes the stage, summoning a bright, circling character select screen while Ghost-Ninja has a hoodie barrelling towards him. Cop Man continues to Pose It Up. Pastel Punk Wizard is only just getting started.
This is around the point I started laughing. Ghost-Ninja has evolved into a Tron character, the Neon Doctor is now a borderline-chibi mascot, Cop Man has taken on an upgraded version of Going Ghost, and the guy you had no idea was a wizard just summon the gates to Satan’s personal living room. And that hoodie of Ghost-Tron’s still hasn’t finished circling the room yet.
Everything is chaos. The hoodie is glowing now and looks to be possessing its host. There’s more singing (more like borderline-rapping) thanks to the Neon Doctor who is no longer chibi and seems to be doing a Mario impression. Cop Man has turned into a weird bug thing that looks like it came out of Megaman. Pastel Punk Wizard has been consumed by the flames of his own creation.
And then, finally, things calm down. Everyone is in their Power Rangers getup of choice. Ghost Guy took down his hood for no discernible reason. Neon Gamer’s theme song is still going in the background. Bug Cop’s eyes calmed down a little. Pastel Punk is no longer pastel and way more obviously a wizard.
This all happens in the span of about ten seconds.
These transformations are so ridiculous yet so weirdly cool, I can’t help but love them. Everything about this moment is incredible in so many ways. It’s hilarious, but you can’t help but feel awed by the whole experience.

Ok, and sorry about the last question. Then how about a minifc of Kouta, Sougo, & Touma bonding over their poly-relationship.
In Which A Fruit Jesus, A Demon Overlord and a Cosmic Swordsman Bond Over Their Polycules
“So, how are things going for you and those three you’re dating, Touma?” Kouta asked him. “I heard you guys moved in together?”
“Yeah, we got a new place. It was getting a little cramped at mine, with Ise and the four of us.” Touma explained. “We got lucky, the place we found wasn’t far from the bookstore, and the master bedroom was big enough for the four of us.”
“Oh, so did that bed we gave you fit in there?” Sougo asked, obliviously innocent, causing Kouta to laugh and Touma’s eye to twitch.
“...Yes, it did.” Touma very reluctantly admitted. “Seriously though, you guys didn’t have to do all that for us.”
“Well, are you at least getting a lot of use out of it?” Sougo questioned. The novelist choked on his own breath, and Kouta laughed at how forward Sougo was being.
“Well, to be fair, it was Tsukasa’s idea, and we didn’t expect for Godai and the others to be so into the idea.” Kouta said. “What about you, Sougo?”
“Oh, we recently got our own place too! Tsuku’s uni was a bit too far from uncle’s. It’s pretty small but at least we don’t risk Uncle or Woz walking in on something they shouldn’t!” replied the youngest Rider with a carefree grin.
“Somehow hearing you say that you don’t want people walking in on you is kinda wrong...” Kouta said in an awkward tone.
“Eh? Is it?” Sougo asked.
“Weren’t you the one who got walked in on by your boyfriend’s brother?” Touma pointed out.
Kouta pouted. “Don’t remind me. I still can’t look Takatora in the eye after that,” he said. “For that matter, didn’t one of your other friends call your boyfriend out in the group chat because he overheard you going at it?”
“In my defense, I didn’t know his hearing was that good!” Touma interjected. “We didn’t think he could hear through the walls of a freaking fortress!”
“Well, it’s not like getting caught made you guys stop doing it right?”
Kouta and Touma stared at the youngest of them in shock. “You... How can you say such things with a straight face?!” Kouta asked incredulously.
“I’ve just accepted that I’m a simp for my Geiz and Tsuku,” Sougo stated simply. “Why should I be ashamed for loving them?”
“Huh. I didn’t expect something like that from you of all people, Sougo, but you’re right.” Kouta said approvingly.
“Thanks- hey wait, what’s that supposed to mean?”
