|This article is about a/an video game in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.|
Taiko Master Hibiki was developed as part of a series of Heisei Rider Gashats by Genm Corp.. As part of CEO Kuroto Dan's ambition to gather the power of the legends preceeding his own Kamen Riders, they contributed to the completion of his Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbarizing.
A manifestation of Kamen Rider Hibiki (仮面ライダー響鬼 Kamen Raidā Hibiki) appeared from the Ganbarizing Game Area after the Collabos Bugster who generated it was destroyed by Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. While Poppy Pipopapo mistook Hibiki for a malicious demon and ran away, Ex-Aid recognized him as another Kamen Rider. Provided with the Bandai Namco Taiko no Tatsujin Gashat by "Dr. Pac-Man", Ex-Aid realized it was the perfect counter to Hibiki's Ongekibou Rekka. Inserting the Gashat into his Kimewaza Slot Holder, Ex-Aid performed the Critical Strike which armed him with a pair of taiko sticks with which he repeled Hibiki's fireballs by matching his rhythm before deflecting their combined firepower back at him, besting Hibiki and clearing the game.
Soon after, Hibiki appeared as part of a gathering of the first seventeen Heisei Riders which empowered Genm as he performed the Ganbarizing Critical Strike, defeating the three doctor Riders with one Rider Kick. Returning to his lair, Dan announced to Parado, who had taken the guise of Dr. Pac-Man, that everything was proceeding according to plan as his assembly of Gashats was completed.
