* In the ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures'', after coming back from fighting behind enemy lines in Europe, the Red Panda starts operating with an eye towards retirement once the World War II is over and things have settled down. Kit notes he's looking at the Danger Federation, a collection of rookie superheroes, and Mr. Amazing, one of its more powerful members, as retirement plans. However the DF is spread out across Canada and Mr. Amazing [[spoiler: doesn't survive the war]]. A successor is eventually found in the form of the Black Eagle, whose secret identity is someone who has been in the Red Panda's circle since he was a little boy.

*** This actually seems to have been a discarded concept for ''Franchise/KamenRider'': a special scene was filmed wherein ''Series/KamenRider555''[='s=] Takumi Inui literally passes the baton to ''Series/KamenRiderBlade''[='s=] Kazuma Kenzaki before the two transform side-by-side. The hand-off was never actually aired and its existence was revealed years later in a [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/kamenrider/images/5/5f/Faiz_and_Blade_Passing_The_Torch.jpg magazine article]].

* Pretty much every wrestler with a Manga/TigerMask [[TheGimmick gimmick]] or some derivative of it was approved of by Wrestling/SatoruSayama, except the [[ArchEnemy Black Tigers]], of course.
* Wrestling/YoshiakiFujiwara to Wrestling/MasakatsuFunaki and Wrestling/MinoruSuzuki, whom he deemed his top students in professional wrestling and mixed martial arts. Suzuki also has strong allusions to Karl Gotch. Wrestling/MasakatsuFunaki would go on to pass it to Yuki Kondo, which sadly ended up not going too far in retrospect.
