**Also, if there's an episode with the Double Riders, it's bound to end this way for the monster. You even get to see the beatdown from the [[SecondPersonAttack monster's point of view]]!

Kamen Rider was originally Takeshi Hongo, college student and motorcyclist. One day, the forces of the evil organization, Shocker, nabbed him and subjected him to experiments [[SuperSoldier to turn him into an elite agent of evil.]] However, Hongo was saved from being [[BrainwashedAndCrazy inducted into Shocker's ranks]] by the sacrifice of an unwilling Shocker scientist, Prof. Midorikawa. Now, as Kamen Rider, Hongo defends the world from Shocker's aspirations; later, he is joined by intrepid FBI agent Kazuya Taki. After that, Hayato Ichimonji, a photographer saved from reconditioning by Hongo, joins the fight as Kamen Rider 2.

* AlasPoorVillain: When Shocker became Gel-Shocker, the first order of business was to dispose of the weaker members - namely the human Shocker mooks, who were gruesomely killed by the monsters.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Ruriko joins Kamen Rider 1 on his worldwide Shocker-busting tour in Episode 13 with little prelude ''and'' having apparently been as much in the dark as everyone else during the "Where's Hongo?" arc. Her departure consists of Ichimonji pretty much saying "oh, and Ruriko went with him." And when Hongo returns, Ruriko does not.



**The whole franchise remains a bit DarkerAndEdgier than its sister series; though not as gritty as the very early episodes, you're ''probably'' gonna suffer more, and lose people whose deaths were not [[DeathByOriginStory the obligatory origin story ones]] if you're a Rider than if you're a Ranger.



**And in its earliest, grittiest days, there were no special effects for it; villains being tossed off roofs with the "effect" being ''blood spraying over the ground'' was not uncommon. Even if it was clearly red paint being thrown from offscreen... ''damn.''



* FakeShemp: To write around Fujioka's accident, Toei used stock footage of him out of costume and a stuntman in costume and voice actor Rokuro Naya.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Saboteguron, the first Kaijin faced by Kamen Rider 2, is taken out by one of his own Cactus bombs.
* HorrifyingHero: The effect isn't as striking nowadays, but Kamen Rider when it came out was a noticeably much more intimidating and surreal figure compared to other heroes at the time such as ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''.
