As the Buddyloids question their Go-Buster partners' dependence on them, they are alerted to the presence of the Zangyack Empire's new emperor Bacchus Gil and the Gokaigers. In the ensuing fight, a confused Gai Ikari arrives to help the Gokaigers while Vaglass member Enter attempts to escape with the Phantom Ranger Keys. However, the keys' unstable power opens a time vortex that pulls in most of the keys, the Gokaigers, Yoko Usami, Gorisaki, and Beet J. Stag. Soon after, the Gokaigers' ally Navi arrives, revealing the last time she saw her crewmates was during a failed assault on the Zangyack homeworld before they seemingly joined forces with Bacchus and Vaglass. Additionally, the Phantom Ranger Keys grant their owner unlimited power.
While regrouping, the remaining Go-Busters, Buddlyloids, and Navi are visited by Shinkenger member Kaoru Shiba, who brings them a message from Yoko saying she, Jay, and Ikari ended up in 18th century Japan. Upon learning further that the other Gokaigers ended up throughout 16th century Europe and Gorisaki is in Laurasia, the Go-Busters borrow Ikari's mecha GouZyu Drill to travel through time, rescue everyone, and retrieve the Phantom Ranger Keys. In the process, the Go-Busters learn the Gokaigers pretended to join the Zangyack Empire so they could take the Phantom Ranger Keys. However, Bacchus realizes their deception and steals two of the Keys upon their return to the present while Enter damages the Go-Busters' mecha. After the Buddyloids sacrifice their personality programming to provide the necessary repairs, the Go-Busters resolve to fight on in their stead and join forces with the Gokaigers to fight the combined Zangyack and Vaglass forces and retrieve all of the Phantom Ranger Keys. Along the way, the two teams receive help from the Kyoryugers, allowing the Go-Busters and Gokaigers to foil Bacchus and Enter's plot to trap Earth in Hyper Space.
Bacchus enlarges while Enter summons his own mecha to fight the two teams. Despite overpowering them, the Go-Busters' refusal to give up on the Buddyloids miraculously restores their personalities and turns the Phantom Ranger Keys into Megazord Keys. Using them, the Gokaigers and Go-Busters transform their mecha into those of their Super Sentai predecessors' to kill Bacchus and defeat Enter. As the Gokaigers bid farewell and head off to find another treasure, their leader Captain Marvelous gives the Go-Busters his blessing as a Sentai team while the Buddyloids get into an argument with their partners over what happened following their sacrifice.
