* RippleEffectProofMemory: A ''very'' important plot point; all Singularity Points essentially have this and, as time is based around memories, they effectively keep time from falling apart when it is changed. Though they don't remember every single thing, they restore what they remember, which then allows other people to remember how things were, creating [[Pun a ripple effect]] that restores the timeline. [[RetGone The only exception is for things that people simply do not have sufficient memories of, such as the invading Imagin, erasing them from the timeline and undoing any effects they may have had on it]]. [[spoiler:This becomes a massive problem for Yuto as, due to the Zeronos cards erasing peoples' memories of him, nobody remembers his actual life when Kai manages to kill him, resulting in a ''vastly'' different timeline where he never lived.]]

%%* MultiformBalance:

%%* MultiformBalance:* MultiformBalance: Each of the Imagin gives Den-O a different set of powers. Ryotaro alone uses Plat Form, a JokeCharacter. When he's possessed, Momotaros is the JackOfAllStats Sword Form, Urataros is the StoneWall Rod Form, Kintaros is the MightyGlacier Ax Form, and Ryutaros is the GlassCannon Gun Form. All four can work together to make the SuperMode, Climax Form; and Ryotaro eventually becomes strong enough to upgrade his personal form to Liner Form, which leans towards being a FragileSpeedster. In the movies, Seig can possess him to make the LightningBruiser Wing Form, and can join in the SuperMode to make it Super Climax Form.
** Zeronos has a few forms as well; Altair Form is a JackOfAllStats, Vega Form is a MightyGlacier, and Zero Form is a LightningBruiser.

Added DiffLines:

* AnimeHair: Any time an Imagin possesses a human, their hair will be restyled and gain at least a shock of a new color; rarely, an accessory may be included, such as Sieg's feathered boa or Urataros' glasses. The style, color and accessories are consistent across hosts, but oddly never appear on the Imagin themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* ActingForTwo: A necessity for the characters who get possessed by the Imagin, who for most of the series are unable to manifest otherwise. Takeru Satoh in particular had effectively to play ''seven'' characters onscreen, each of them distinct beyond the makeup.

* CloseEnoughTimeline: While time can't be outright rewritten for the better, minor changes are allowed here and there provided that it's incidental to fixing the actual damage. [[spoiler:The series ends on this too, as with the death of Kai the Taros, Sieg and Deneb should fade away. However, the strong memories they've made with the main cast allow them to exist beyond their initial timeline.]]

* CoolTrain: The show is built on them, particularly the [=DenLiner=], [=ZeroLiner=], [=GaohLiner=], and [=KingLiner=].



** Of course, the tables turn when Gaoh returns to the [=GaohLiner=] - turns out that, while extremely powerful in its own right, it's not disposed towards fighting against [[spoiler:''six'' other time trains linked together, each armed to the teeth. The fact that Gaoh attempted a ramming strike against the [=ZeroLiner=], which has a ''drill'' for a weapon]] really just sealed the deal.

* FollowTheLeader[=/=]GenreTurningPoint: Because of how absurdly popular it was, virtually every other ''Kamen Rider'' series that followed Den-O has taken at least one cue from it. It also popularized the two-episode arc in Kamen Rider, which, though used in previous series, went on to be the standard episode format until [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Gaim]].

* GratuitousEnglish: Among others: "Full Charge!", "Charge And Up!"All of the belts speak entirely in English. Momotaros' use of the word "Climax" also counts as a more standard use of the trope.

* BiggerIsBetter: The Onigashima Battleship is '''huge'''. Comparing it to the [=DenLiner=] is like comparing [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Daijinryu]] to a normal Zord. [[SubvertedTrope However]], the DenLiner's size and speed proves to be a major asset, allowing it to evade most of the shots fired at it and enter the battleship.

* DeadlyDodging: at the beginning of ''Episode Yellow'', the Taros surround [[spoiler:the possessed [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Kaito]],]] he dodges, and the Imagin all hit ''each other'' in a CrossCounter.
* DemonicPossession: A more benevolent version, and the only way the Taros can interact with the physical world. Played for humor in ''Climax Deka'', where Momotaros is accidentally shunted into [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Wataru Kurenai]]'s body. In the fourth movie, the Taros possess the [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Arms Monsters]] as well as [[Series/KamenRiderDecade [=DiEnd=]]]-summoned copies of [[Series/KamenRiderAgito G3]], [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Caucasus]], and [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ohja]]. [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Tsukasa/Decade]] himself gets possessed by all four Taros Imagin and Sieg, while Yusuke[=/=]Kuuga is possessed by Momo and Natsumi gets possessed by the other three main Imagins at different points.

* InterfaceSpoiler: A non-video game example, oddly: The [[TransformationTrinket henshin belt]] has 4 buttons on it, indicating that Ryotaro will have 4 different Imagin possessing him for different forms, even ColorCodedForYourConvenience so you know that those all-yellow and all-purple Imagin are gonna be part of the crew. [[spoiler: And then Sieg comes in to give him a fifth form, subverting it partially since it's rarely used.]]

* JackassGenie: Sure, the Imagins will grant your wish... But they'll always choose the interpretation of it that will cause the most harm to you and others. Example : "I want to play soccer again!" "Okay, I'll just put the other players into hospital!" Though this could be justified due to the fact that they're not actual wish-granting genies, and thus try to find any loophole they can to render the contract "complete" and thus allow them to travel to the past.

* MechanicalMonster: What All the time trains have this to some degree, what with the various animal motifs that their chassis and weapons embody. The [=GaohLiner=] comes across as.as one stronger than the others though, given that its transformation not only has it regularly rear back like a snake but also roar into the air.

* MundaneUtility: The [=DenLiner=] is, and always has been, a passenger train (time-traveling, yes, but you get the point). The fact that it's a heavily armed one doesn't seem to gather much comment.



* RetCon: The ''Chō Den-O Trilogy'' changes the rules on Imagin time travel from the show, now saying that if an Imagin successfully travels to the past, the act will destroy the contractor's past self (via dissolution into sand). Unless this is some sort of fallout from the final episode, [[UnfortunateImplications this reflects rather badly on Kintaros, as he was one of the Imagin who completed his contract and travelled back in time]].
** Not sure where you're getting that. The rule throughout the series was that an Imagin who travels to the past might destroy their contract holder by killing their past self; that remains true throughout ''Chō Den-O'', even being quite clearly explained in ''Episode Blue'' to a contract holder by Hana.
