Daigo is approached by the vision of a peacock and a mysterious qi to defeat a Gorma Minion which had trapped within an ancient Dai warrior.
A Mirror flies to the Earth at night and all the pets in Daigo's pet store are disturbed. Daigo finds a peacock feather. The next day, Daigo mediates by the beach and feels strange peacock energy. A peacock comes out of nowhere and then disappears. Unsuspecting females gaze at their reflections and are ingested by the strange mirror. Daigo relates his experience to the others. Master Kaku tells them of Kujaku, a follower of the Peacock Buddha. When a man looks at his reflection in the mirror, he is ingested but then thrown up. He runs off. The mirror takes his true form of the Mirror Make-Up Artist. The Gorma trio join him. The mirror strikes again, consuming another girl and Daigo kicks the mirror. The mirror grabs Daigo with its tongue and Daigo transforms. They fight. Mirror Make-Up Artist has the best of him until the others arrive. He beats them and leaves. Daigo notices familiar energy on him. The Dairanger un-transform and gather around Daigo. Back at the beach, Daigo connects the two energies together and realizes it is Kujaku. The monster cuts people's faces through mirrors all around town and blow up buildings, which the others respond to. Daigo mediates and calls forth Kujaku's energy to find the Gorma. When the peacock appears, he follows it and enters a dimension. He then appears where the Gorma is. Daigo fights the Cotpotros and the monster once again and breaks the mirror with his Dai Rod with Fork. Daigo takes the mirror monster to his illusion dimension and he is surrounded by the other Dairanger. The Gorma brings out a knife and does a confusing illusion technique on the Dairanger, but Daigo still manages to smash his mirror. Mirror Make-Up Artist grows huge and the Dairanger call their beasts and destroy him with Dairenoh. The women are freed and the Dairanger tend to them. Daigo look around and finds Kujaku on a cliff. Kujaku talks to the Dairanger. Daigo shows her the peacock feather, she tells him to keep it. He is enthralled by her.
