** This is possibly explained as an advanced form of [[{{Comicbook/Spider-Man}} Spider Sense]] in that the Advent Void... or their decks... or ''something'' keeps letting the Riders know when people are in danger. And it ''never'' lets up. This in itself is kinda cool, as the idea's similar to the noises made by the Mirror World in ''Ryuki''.

* GratuitousJapanese: Despite being made for an American audience, the show kept the "Kamen" in Kamen Rider untranslated even though the English name "Masked Rider" is also used in Japan. Producer Steve Wang stated [[http://www.scifijapan.com/articles/2009/02/22/kamen-rider-returns-to-us-television/ in an interview]] that he prefers the actual Japanese moniker over the translated form, but he also wanted to distance ''Dragon Knight'' from Saban's [[InkStainAdaptation earlier attempt]] at making an Americanized Kamen Rider series, simply titled ''MaskedRider''.

* CanonForeigner: In a non-human version, ''Dragon Knight'' actually shows Wrath's Final Vent on-screen, while ''Ryuki'' didn't show Odin's; until ''DK'', the only way to see it was to play the {{Playstation}} game.

* AffirmativeActionGirl: Siren, whose role is beefed up compared to her Japanese counterpart. Subverted when [[spoiler: she gets vented before being brought back in the last few episodes with the other Ventaran Riders.]]
** PositiveDiscrimination: Xaviax considers her as good as or better than Wing Knight. (But then again, any of the Ventaran Riders are career soldiers and they are going to outperform the civilians Xaviax had to work with.)

** There's a more blatant one with the crest on the wall of No-Men HQ, which is CaptainAmerica's old shield with some stuff around it.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathByAdaptation: In the terms of dying early compared to the counterpart, [[spoiler:Torque is vented around the same time that Thrust was vented, roughly a third of the way through]].

Added DiffLines:

* StockFootage: Being based on Ryuki, the show makes various uses of the fight scenes from the original.
** This tends to lead to some odd continuity issues though. In ''A Rider's Challenge'', Incisor is somehow vented even after he is shown still standing after Wing Knight's Final Vent, bringing to question exactly how he was "defeated." Of course, in Ryuki, Scissors was defeated because his deck was smashed by Ren in that same Final Vent, and he was [[EatenAlive subsequently consumed by Volcancer]] because his Contract card was destroyed; not something that can be shown to kids.
