** In the final battle, Jun/Utopia tries to drain the power of W [=CycloneJokerXtreme=], but is physically harmed by the power being too much for him to absorb, much like in {{Kinnikuman}} when Buffaloman is burning up inside from absorbing Kinnikuman's Burning Inner Strength.

*** Akiko's dream about turning into Double has the transform FX changed to say "Naniwa no Bishojo Kamen (Who Is that Beautiful Kamen)", a reference to ''Series/BishoujoKamenPoitrine''.

Shows strong influence from 1972 {{Manga}}-turned-{{Toku}} ''Manga/ChoujinBarom1'', HardboiledDetective fiction, CyberPunk, and madcap comedy-- making the series as much a matter of fusion as its Rider.

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalFearInducer: The show's BigBad, Ryuube Sonozaki AKA the Terror Dopant, is able to generate a field that causes anyone caught within it to suffer from intense fear (as in, curled up in the fetal position and screaming like a madman). He can also turn his [[NiceHat Nice Headdress]] into a {{Kaijuu}} dubbed the Terror Dragon. Even without transforming, Ryuube himself can instill a degree of degree of terror in those around him.

* ThreeDMovie: Early in an investigation of a movie theater in "The Likelihood of the G", Shotaro and Akiko come across the film version of their favorite drama ''Saheiji of the Wind'', their favourite JidaiGeki series. In 3D, of course, perhaps as a nod to the popularity of the trend in theatres at the moment.
--> '''Shotaro''': Look at that...''Kaze no Saheji'': [[GratuitousEnglish The Movie]]! ''And it's even in 3D!!''
** Double's feature movie ''Double Forever'' was also shown in 3D, though not in all cinemas.

* CatchPhrase: W has two: "Now, count up your sins/crimes!" (which was originally said by Skull and W copied it) and "This clinches it!" Accel has "Let's break away!" (sometimes translated as "Let's get shaking!") and "Despair awaits you on the finish line" (sometimes translated as "Your goal is despair"). Akiko has "I didn't hear anything about this!" Philip has "How very compelling..." whenever a topic is mentioned that interests him (which is most things).
