* {{Kiai}}: In a manner similar to BruceLee's. Justified in that he fights using none other than Lee's Jeet Kune Do.

* MeaningfulName: "Ryusei" means meteor. And of course "Ryu" on its own is the same pronunciation as the Japanese for "dragon"... which is part of BruceLee's Chinese name. You gotta wonder why they didn't just go for that instead, as the whole cast uses the rarely employed ''inseki'' instead when talking about actual meteors, because if it wasn't the case his cover would be blown within five minutes!

* StopHelpingMe: [invoked] He ''hates'' Ryusei for tampering with the Switches. Then he learns from Ryusei that Gentaro asked him personally to help testing them due to Kengo's health.
** The reason why Kengo got pissed off at the use of the Magnet State? They were dangerous and he didn't want Gentaro to be damaged from using them too soon.

* ShipperOnDeck: Most members of the Kamen Rider Club seem to be shipping Tomoko and Ryuusei. Particularly obvious at the end of #44 when Yuuki hands out homemade tickets to space and gives those two a couple's ticket.

* UnwantedHarem: Episodes 25-26 focus, in part, on several third-year girls wanting to ask Gentarou out to prom. [[spoiler:Including Miu.]]

* {{Flanderization}}: In the first several episodes, Yuuki was a GenkiGirl that liked space and wanted to be an astronaut, but was still relatively down-to-earth and functioned as a pacifier between Gentarou and Kengo. Hher space enthusiasm has pretty much her only defining character trait, so much so that she literally worships "Rocket God" in a story arc, and has pretty much become a gibbering PluckyComicRelief. Compare her character now with how she was in the first 16 or so episodes, it's really jarring.

* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: In stark contrast to the above, when Kengo tells the Riders that the Gemini clone Gentarou is fighting is actually a mass of explosive energy, Ryuusei immediately abandons his fight with the actual Gemini, runs to Gentarou, tackles the clone off of him, and then ''pins it to the ground until it explodes.'']]

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Aside from the SadisticChoice below [[spoiler:which was a SecretTestOfCharacter anyway]], he's generally supportive and supplies advice and information to Ryusei. [[spoiler: And when Ryusei steps out of line in #31 by killing Gentarou to protect Aries, remotely deactivates the Meteor transformation immediately.]]

* {{Determinator}}: After getting stung with a poison from Scorpion Zodiarts, he has the willpower to walk all the way to where JK was hanging out, and use him as a crutch as he [[spoiler:staggers toward Miura at the top of the school, just so he can hand him Mari's photo album]].

* GotMeDoingIt: When he assumed Meteor Fusion States, he does Ryusei's CharacterTic and is prone to the FunnyBruceLeeNoises.



** It's slightly deconstructed as he states to Miura that because he's such an idiot, all he can do is just protect his friends [[spoiler:even while trying to walk toward him after getting afflicted by Scorpion Zodiarts' poison]].

** He also stopped the Libra Zodiarts from giving another student a Zodiarts Switch, causing him to accidentally drop it. Another student found it, [[spoiler:went beyond its Last One stage and ''eventually turned into Cancer Zodiarts'']].

** This is slightly {{Deconstructed}} in Episodes 43-44 with [[spoiler: Gemini Zodiarts taunting her about how she really wants to do evil things--like cheating Kengo out of going to NASA, pulling pranks on her friends, hurting Miu--and that she hides it under a chipper mask]].

* BigDamnHeroes: In Episode 8, she saves Gentaro by beating the crap out of both Hound Zodiarts ''and'' Scorpion Zodiarts by using Powerdizer the first time, but collapsed shortly thereafter due to the massive strain it caused on her body.

!!! Tropes that apply to him in general



* BareFistedMonk: Compared to [[Series/KamenRiderBlade many]] [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki past]] [[Series/KamenRiderDecade second]] [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Riders]], he prefers fighting hand-to-hand.



* FinishingMove
** ''Starlight Shower'': A series of [[RapidFireFisticuffs fast punches]], activated by placing the Meteor Switch in the Meteor Galaxy.
** ''Meteor Strike'': A powerful kick activated by turning on the Meteor Switch in the Meteor Driver.
*** ''Meteor Storm Strike'': The same attack in Meteor Storm States, also using the Meteor Switch.
** ''Meteor Tornado'': A [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning attack]] activated by turning on the Meteor Switch in the Meteor Driver.
** ''Meteor Storm Punisher'': Inserts the Meteor Storm Switch into the Meteor Storm Shaft, after which the tip of the switch is shot out like a [[BattleTops spinning top]]. It also absorbs the Zodiarts' Cosmic Energy and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard uses it against them]]. This has the added bonus of making it safe to destroy them thanks to draining off the extra energy.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Mocks Gentaro into giving into Lynx Zodiarts in exchange for JK's safety. Yet, he's out there as Meteor so he can save his ''own'' friend.

* MadeOfIron: You'd think Cygnus Zodiarts stamping on his arm would leave some kind of GameBreakingInjury that would clue in the others on who he is. No such luck.

* MundaneUtility: ''Meteor Storm Punisher''...as a glorified golf swing!



* [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Nice Job Fixing It,]] AntiHero: Nearly blew his cover by punching Gentaro out of frustration over seeing him destroy Lynx Zodiarts, but it works to his advantage soon, since [[spoiler: it allowed Gentaro to see a bit of the true Ryusei and have him join the Kamen Rider Club just so he can make friends with ''that'' Ryusei as opposed to the cover.]]

* SphereOfPower: Meteor's henshin forms a blue energy sphere around him for a short time. Unlike [[TransformationIsAFreeAction most other henshin effects that come with a convenient defensive barrier]], [[DynamicEntry this one can actually do some damage.]]
* StarSpangledSpandex
* SuperMode: [[color:blue:Meteor]] [[color:gold:Storm]]
** GoldenSuperMode: Has a good deal of gold in the color scheme.



* WatchThePaintJob: when Meteor was chasing Pegasus, Fourze hitches a ride on the Meteorstar using the Winch Switch, causing Meteor to shout something similar.
* WeakButSkilled: Lacks Fourze's sheer arsenal, but makes up for it by being a skilled martial artist.

** [[spoiler: He kills Gentaro so he could ask Aries Zodiarts to heal his friend.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler: In his debut episode, he's got flack from the Kamen Rider Club for ''letting the Lynx Zodiarts go free'' instead of letting them land the final blow on him.]]

Even Tachibana was shocked and had to cancel the Meteor Storm transformation, and now the whole Kamen Rider Club knows what's happened. Made even worse because Tachibana himself stated that he could try to find a cure to save Jiro once Aries was captured.]]
