--> ''"Now, my vintage is at its luxurious… …Transform!"''

''Kamen Rider G'' was a 20 minute short episode released in 2009. It's an AffectionateParody of all things Franchise/KamenRider.

In the year 2009 following the events of TheWarOnTerror, a black ops anti-terrorist organization called Shade was created. After the Japanese government uncover some human-rights violations connected to their SuperSoldier project, they shut Shade down and imprison their leader, Tokugawa Seizan.

At the TV Asahi building, members of the now-rogue Shade organization take everyone inside hostage. They interrupt filming of a show about wine, hosted by one Hinata Eri, and one of them, called "Number 5", comes to deliver their demands for the release of their leader. Eri recognizes Number 5 as Goro, the man who had promised to marry her three years before but had then disappeared. He didn't seem to remember her at all, however. After finishing the speech on-air he drinks some of the wine left behind by Eri, and his memories of his former life, and the brainwashing and modifications done to him by Shade to make him "remodeled human code G". He begins to fight against Shade for the sake of his love, as the lonely warrior of love, Kamen Rider G.

!!Kamen Rider G contains examples of ...
* AffectionateParody: G is essentially a Showa-style (Reconstructed Human) Rider in a heavily themed Heisei Rider show.
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: "G" is for Kamen Rider G, obviously.
* TheDanza: Goro Inagaki as Goro, the titular hero.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:Series/KamenRiderDecade - with all the Heisei Riders in tow.]]
** [[spoiler: Also, The BigBad in Kabuto's world that was shown in Decade: Phylloxera Worm]].
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Swirling Rider Kick
* ImprobableWeaponUser: G's obligatory rider sword is actually a giant sommelier knife with corkscrew.
* LargeHam
* MoodDissonance: The short episode itself played the tropes straight, but being broadcast during SMAP's variety program meant that SMAP was viewing it live, [=MST3K=] style. Says it all, really.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: G's Kamen Rider theme is...wine. His [[TransformationTrinket henshin belt]] is effectively a buckle-mounted wine opener, activated by slotting a bottle of wine into it — resulting in one of the most pyrotechnically flashy {{Transformation Sequence}}s in the Rider franchise.
* MythologyGag: The short version is "everything" (even the recycled music is used under the same circumstances as in the original series) but they went the extra mile with the transformation. First, he lands, imprinting his symbol into the ground a la [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kiva]]. Then, he does [[Series/KamenRider Kamen Rider 1]]'s arm-fling, then rotates it with his arm leaving behind an afterimage just like [[Series/KamenRiderSkyrider Skyrider]]. He inserts the wine bottle from the side just like [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ryuki]]'s Advent Deck insert, and pulls the bottle opener handle back much like [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Gatack]]'s Cast Off. The suit's red lines appear first and trace around him exactly like [[Series/KamenRiderFaiz Faiz]], and then there's a sort of liquid explosion effect just like [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Chalice]]. The helmet is last to appear ([[Series/KamenRiderX X-Rider]] homage, or is that a stretch?) after which the eyepieces light up and there's a ripple of heatwaves, similar to [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Ixa]] when his mask opens.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "What would you like for your pre-meal drink?"
* ProductionPosse: An official SMAP-sanctioned outing, it stars band member Goro Inagaki and his real-life girlfriend Yumiko Shaku. Fellow member Tsuyoshi Kusanagi appears ''on a poster''.
* TheEndOrIsIt: [[spoiler: The ending indicates that Seizen does have some stuff up his sleeve, which means that his Shade henchmen will try and free him again.]]
* ThemeTuneCameo: Not only does some PropRecycling take place, but the ''music'' is taken from ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'' and other series.
