Years ago, Den Iga was forced to rush onto the scene when an alien serial killer almost murdered a female human hostage due to Kai Hyuga's recklessness in predicting that the alien would drop his weapon and be apprehended if he opened fire. After the alien was defeated by Sharivan and captured, Den called Kai out for his so called calculations and berated him on the fact that the alien's biology made him immune to guns, which Kai did not take into consideration as he didn't read the report. He asked Kai and Seigi what does it mean to be a Space Sheriff, but neither could give the answer he was looking for.

A few years later, Den then retired from the role of Sharivan and was promoted, the replacement candidate for the Sharivan armor was chosen; Kai Hyuga. Den congratulated the young officer for his commendations and high aptitude and asked him again what it meant to be a Space Sheriff. Kai responded that it was about performing to the best of his ability and using calculations to predict the outcomes of crimes. This answer disappointed Den and he said that he would not acknowledge Kai as Sharivan as "there is more to it than relying simply on calculations".


At the end of the film, Kai meets up with Den and gives him the answer he was hoping for: A Space Sheriff protects the innocent at any cost, even at the risk of their own lives. Kai also tells him that he will no longer rely only on calculations but his own heart and instincts. Den is pleased with Kai's revelation and finally acknowledges him as his successor, giving him his blessing before leaving.
