Osakabe then summoned his vehicle, Zero Fire and launched the five medium-scale vehicles to remove them. Reiji then came down from his place and summoned his core vehicle, Core Zero Fire. Using his rescue commander, Core Zero Fire transformed Reiji Osakabe into R0.
R0 fought off Neo Terror's Axtos with his his Rescue Zamber. Then he handed it to Hikaru, R1 and allowed him to use it and remind them of the crisis.
Reiji and the Supreme Commander then began working on research on the Metal Train, creator Dr. Maddo. They discovered he was Mataro Madano the scientist and realized he planned to crash the train at Nouvelle Ginza for revenge.
Later, the director as R0 helped Rescue Force battle against Metal Train in its snake form. He then reminded them to fight for the people's lives and their smiles.
After the battle, Reiji Osakabe was introduced to the members of Rescue Force by the Supreme Commander. He encouraged them in their work and reminded them to be on guard for the future crisises.

Later, Reiji helped one of the members, Tatsuya who is Fire-1 control his Rescue Soul to be able to pilot a new vehicle called X-Dragon.
