* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler: Tackle is killed late in the series, and her actress dies of a sudden asthma attack in the 80s, turning Tackle's death into HarsherInHindsight. Her being officially considered ''not'' a true Rider but a mere sidekick only adds insult to injury. This is referenced in the ''Manga/KamenRiderSpirits'' manga.]]
** More like rectified: [[spoiler:''Spirits'' gives a better explanation for Tackle not being considered a Kamen Rider, saying that Jou and Tachibana felt she had done enough and wanted her to rest in peace as a normal woman, not a warrior.]]
*** [[spoiler: In Spirits, after Tackle's death, when she sacrificed herself in battle to kill a foe that not even Stronger could match, while hiding the fact that she had been fatally poisoned, Shigeru, while leaving her grave, said "Yuriko... no, Tackle.", respecting her as a warrior even if not calling her a Kamen Rider. Meanwhile, in Spírits, Shigeru claims that she's just Yuriko and died as a normal woman.]]
*** [[spoiler: More recently, the KR Decade short films raised the question of Tackle's rider status directly, and Tackle featured prominently in one of the Decade movies. The jury's still out, but there seems to be a swell of support for Tackle being given full Kamen Rider status posthumously. With the creation of Kamen Rider Kivala, and Decade showing female riders in the Hibiki-verse, there may yet be hope for female Kamen Riders. ''Decade'' also treated Yuriko a lot better than ''Stronger'' did; where ''Stronger's'' Yuriko seemed to end up tied up if faced with anything worse than two {{Mooks}} and had to die to beat Doctor Kate in her ''only'' instance of surpassing that, ''Decade's'' Yuriko, while having a quite different personality (''Decade's'' Yuriko is a GenkiGirl ThirdPersonPerson, but it's covering a good deal of pain.) was a force to be reckoned with. Yuriko's fans surely had no problem with her telling Decade "No, let me handle this" and sending six Riotroopers (EvilKnockoff Riders from ''Series/KamenRider555,'' a homage to the Shocker Riders of old) flying like ragdolls with ''one'' Electro-Wave Throw (yes, that attack that was only capable of ''pushing'' one or two footsoldiers - basic grunts, the kind that are routinely beaten by humans with decent chop-socky skills - back but without actually stopping them in ''Stronger''.) She didn't just return, she returned with powers as strong as her will always was, and it was ''beautiful.'']]
*** [[spoiler: The change regarding Tackle makes sense in context. Yuriko is shown in all of the flashbacks to have been someone who loved Jou, but could never live a normal life with him because of Black Satan's reconstruction of them. Thus, by acknowledging Yuriko as a woman, Jou is giving her in death the one thing she couldn't have: her old life back. If anything, Jou was just respecting her wish.]]
*** [[spoiler: The big irony of Tackle not being titled a Kamen Rider (and the reference in the Decade special) is that, after Shigeru gave himself the title of "Kamen Rider", Yuriko ''chose'' to go by "Denpa Ningen" instead.]]

* FauxActionGirl: Misaki Yuriko/Electro-Wave Human Tackle. If you only know her by how sad fans were to see her die or how cool the ''KamenRiderDecade'' alternate version is, you'll be surprised to find her unable to deal with any {{Monster of the Week}}. Her one victory [[spoiler: is the one that cost her her life]].

* AchillesHeel: Jou Shigeru, as Stronger, has electric and magnetic powers, easily beating most "kaijin" (hard to translate; of the many renderings you'll see, "inhumanoids" is probably the best, if an unwieldy word. Comes of the same base as {{Kaiju}} but suggests a more humanoid form, the catch-all term for the monsters in series like ''KamenRider, SuperSentai,'' and the rest of [[{{Toku}} that genre.]]) of Black Satan easily. However, later in the series, the "Kaizou Majins" (Remodeled demons) from the Delza Army appear, and they're completely immune to Stronger's electric and magnetic attacks in standard conditions, putting Stronger in a great disadvantage.
