** Saburo in the live action. While his animated counterpart is a total JerkAss, he avoids killing innocent people and he revolted against Gill when he [[DisneyDeath momentanealy destroyed]] Kikaider with dirty methods.

* [[AnimeFirst Live Action Show First]]: While the manga was made alongside the live action series, it first started being published in August 1972, while the toku first aired during July of the same year, thus predating the manga by two months.



* NoNameGiven: A lot of the monsters of the week weren't given real names, or atleast weren't clear about them. Such as giant mantis, robot black ant guy, golden bat vampire dude, and that one leopard robot, and the flying turtle that shoots rocks.

* OncePerEpisode: In the 1970's series, after Jiro destroys a destructoid the scene always cuts to a bunch of metal junk being thrown into the ground.

* ReplacementGoldfish: Jiro (literally "next son") was modoled after the likeness of his creator's dead son Ichiro ("first son"). Hakaider's human name, Saburo ("third son") continues the theme.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After [[spoiler: Dr. Komiyoji takes over his body]], we never see Saburo/Hakkaider again for the rest of the series, and was never given a suitable defeat as once he returns he is then immediately killed by Gill and thus never got a proper final fight with Kikaider. In the OVA Gill returns in a Hakkaider-style body, but that's not quite the same.

* BecomeARealBoy

to:

* BecomeARealBoyBecomeARealBoy: The general premise, aside from saving people from killer robots, is of Jiro learning and adapting his conscience from the positive and negative experiences and thus grow more human.

* WasItReallyWorthIt: The ending of the OVA poses this question of [[spoiler: Jiro's quest to BecomeARealBoy. He's truly gained the spectrum of emotions necessary, but he's tormented by the fact that he had to kill Gill. Because this question is posed at the very end, we never get an answer.]]



* WorldMadeOfCardboardSpeech: In the end when Jiro is partially corrupted by Gill (he still has good inside but now has evil inside to). Gill, throughout the series tells Kikaider that he isn't human and will never be human. Ironically, because of gill, Kikaider is now capable of cruelty, anger, and deceit. This culminates with Jiro stating to Gill that he is at last human [[spoiler: and then holding gill's brain jar in his hands and crushing it saying "with this act I am at last human".]]

* LargeHam: The golden bat robot guy, who seems to be as melodramatic as it gets.

* LargeHam: The golden bat robot guy, who seems to be as melodramatic as it gets. It helps that he's voiced by Norio Wakamoto in the japanese dub.


Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: The 1970's toku compared to the first Kamen Rider series due to a more comedic tone and the Destructoids having a more cartoony design compared to Shocker's kaijin.


Added DiffLines:

* TragicMonster: Gold Wolf, Gold Bat, Black Spiny Anteater and his ''daughter'' tiny spiny anteater.
