Chasing the Mystery!
To The Max, Dead or Alive!
Engineered History! (仕組まれたhistory！ Shigumimareta hisutorī!) is the twenty-second episode of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. It marks the first appearance of the Maximum Mighty X and Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat in their prototype development stages.
Kuroto falls victim to the Bugster virus and is aprehended by the authorities. Despite everything Kuroto did to him and his friends, Emu is determined to treat him, but the others are wary, wondering if saving Kuroto's life is worth the effort, or even if he will be grateful for it. On the other sides, Hiiro finds some very useful information from Kiriya Kujo's belongings while Emu receives an emergency call that a Bugster is rampaging on a certain location.

- Video Game References in this episode:
- When the unfinished double Gashat doesn't work in Snipe's Gamer Driver, he removes it and tries blowing on the cartridge end (even though he's wearing a mask). This is what many gamers would do to try and make their game cartridges work if they didn't load up properly because of dust inside, even though the practice actually introduced moisture into the cartridges that made them corrode and break faster.
- When Emu's Gamer Driver is destroyed, Genm says that the driver is "corrupted" and will no longer work. This is in reference to corrupted games, games that have damaged data or corrupted files that prevent the game from working or even functioning at all. Corrupted game consoles are unable to play games due to age, corrosion, damage or bad programming software that "bricks" the console.
- This is the first episode since Energy Items began appearing scattered around the battlefield that a significant number of the Items thus far seen did not appear.
- This is the first time either of Genm's Buggle Driver finishers had a prelude screen.
- Tsuguru's inspiration of the new game Buddhist Priest of Temple (ボーズ·オブ·テラ Bōzu Obu Tera) is very similar to Onari of Daitenku Temple in Kamen Rider Ghost.
- This is the first time to show that even a person has been through the compatible surgery in order to be a Rider, they can still get Game Disease when injected a massive amount of the Bugster Virus into their bodies through the Gashacon Bugvisor.
- The episode title refers to Kuroto Dan's deception: he engineered his own medical history by infecting himself with the Bugster Virus to further his nefarious plans.
- It also refers to how Kuroto has manipulated Emu's life to further his own goals.
