Eager to fight Gridman, Anti chased Yuta Hibiki down at school, demanding he fight as Gridman. However, he was told that Gridman would come only if there was a kaiju around. Anti then left and along the way, he got the idea of sneaking into Akane's room and asking Alexis・Kerib to create a kaiju for him. Alexis accepted the request, saying that Anti's hatred towards Gridman would make a great monster. Shortly after, a lance-like UFO appeared in the sky. Gridman appeared and destroyed the UFO after a short fight but it was able to regenerate itself, giving him some trouble. Combining with Sky Vitter, Sky Gridman flew upwards and found the real body controlling the UFO like a marionette. Anti was standing on its head and transformed. After a brief aerial chase, Diriver was destroyed by Gridman using the Gridknight Saber Slash. Scheme
