* {{Cliffhanger}}:
** ''Rider'' series are notorious for showing something cool and unexpected in the next episode previews, and then not revealing said cool thing until the last 30 seconds of the episode.
** The original series (and especially ''V3'') would sometimes show the Rider mere moments from death at the end of the episode... then be doubly awesome in the next one.
** ''Decade'' ends the last episode on a cliffhanger, with the finale only being available in theaters months later.

* BadassBiker: It's there in the title, after all. Again, more apparent in the Showa series where more attention was drawn to them.

*** The Amazon Prime web series ''Amazons'' goes UpToEleven, by having it [[BloodierAndGorier more focused on violence and straight-up horror]] that's not for kids anymore. This is why ''Amazons'' was streamed on web service first.

** Very rarely does a ''Kamen Rider'' series get to be LighterAndSofter. The only known ones at the moment are ''Black RX'', ''Agito'', ''Blade'', ''Den-O'', ''Fourze'', and ''Ghost'' (though ''OOO'' can be a contender for this sometimes). Mind you though, that doesn't mean these series are all sunshine and rainbows. Just that compare to the darker entries, they are usually lighter. Agito for example, has a lot of scenes that won't look out of place in a horror movie. Both Agito and Blade also contains rather complex stories and characters with dark past.
