** The "Futo Irregulars" seem to be an analog to the Baker Street Irregulars from the ''SherlockHolmes'' series.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

*** The TrainingFromHell that Shroud puts Ryu Terui through in ep. 36 is something that Ichigo and most Showa Riders would already be familiar with, courtesy of Tachibana Tobei.

** Ryuu turns into one of these for one fight scene in the Kamen Rider Accel movie. He's handcuffed to Aoi to keep her from running away, and he doesn't have his Memory, so the entire (rather long) fight looks like a bizarre mix between a brawl and a swing dance as he simultaneously beats up the attackers and keeps Aoi out of harm's way.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Santa-chan in the first few minutes of ''Movie War Core.'' The full hero cast is supposed to be attending [[spoiler: Ryuu and Akiko's wedding,]] but they, Shotaro, and Philip haven't arrived yet. Santa-chan remarks there's an hour and a half before the ceremony and wonder if they're okay with an AsideGlance. That's approximately the length of the movie.

* PowerOfTrust: Detective Jinno turns out to have weaponized this quite unintentionally when he was a beat cop. When delinquents (like a young Shoutarou) would make up lies to avoid getting in trouble, he would believe them so completely that the liars would end up wanting to believe it themselves.
--> '''Shoutarou:''' He isn't easy to fool. He's ''skilled'' at being fooled.

** The Hyper Battle video where they're dealing with a Donburi Dopant has Shoutarou, Akiko, and Ryuu go at it a'la ''IronChef'' in order to solve the case as Philip was too hungry to even go into the Bookshelves. To wit: Kitchen Garage instead of Kitchen Stadium, Philip dressing up in glittery clothes as the Chairman (although not as flashy as Kaga's wardrobe), and banging a gong.

Also Foundation X is behind the new generation of Gaia Memories that will be used in the upcoming movie]].
