* HeyItsThatGuy:
** ''Double'' is packed with ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' alumni:
*** Lunagel from ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'' (Meibi Yamanouchi) is Marina in "The W Search".
*** [[spoiler:Kirihiko's little sister Yukie]]/Yuko in "Y's Tragedy" is Kaoru Hirata, who played Yuka Yamazaki, also in ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''.
*** The human form of Arms Dopant? That's [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger [=AbaRed=]]] (Kouichirou Nishi). As if to push the point further, he states repeatedly that he loves to "rampage"[[note]]"''Abare''"[[/note]]. And on top of that, Shotaro and Philip fight him with what is basically the Double equivalent of Abarekiller, [[TheSpiny spines]] and all.
*** "''[[strike:[[Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger Jasmine]]]] Aya (Ayumi Kinoshita) wa [[strike:[=ESPer=]]] [[HilariousInHindsight Deka]] [[TheNarrator de aru]].''"
*** And [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger [=HurricaneBlue=]]] (Nao Nagasawa) appears in "The D was Seen" as Lily Shirogane, a stage magician who uses a Dopant Memory to cheat at her disappearing act. She would return in the Accel edition of ''Kamen Rider Double Returns'' as a [[AscendedExtra waitress]] at her grandfather's coffee shop. She is still a magician, though, and even manages to [[spoiler:allow Shotaro and Philip to escape police custody via her Memory-free vanishing act so they can assist Accel]].
*** We have Naoki Kawano and Yuka Hirata from ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'' appearing as Toru Kawai and Kyoko Todoroki in episodes 39 and 45 respectively. They previously appeared as the BigBad Long and DarkActionGirl Mele.
*** [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger BoukenSilver]] (Masayuki Deai) played the Trigger Dopant in ''Double Forever''.
*** [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Rin Takanashi (Mako Shiraishi/Shinken Pink)]] and [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Sho Tomita (Yukito Sanjou/Abare Blue)]] appear in the Kamen Rider Eternal edition of ''Kamen Rider Double Returns'' alongside Jyunichi Haruta ([[Series/DaiSentaiGoggleFive Goggle Black]] & [[Series/KagakuSentaiDynaman Dyna Black]]).
*** While not a Sentai alumni at the time, [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger GokaiPink]] appears in episode 49.
** Some ''Franchise/KamenRider'' alumni, too:
*** Amane Kurihara from ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' (Hikari Kajiwara) shows up in "The Vengeful V" as one of the art students.
*** The actor playing the human form of the [[spoiler:Liar]] Dopant was in ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'', playing a surgeon that rotated his duties with two Worms mimicking him.
*** Kirihiko showed up way back in the first two episode of ''[[Series/KamenRiderDenO Den-O]]'' as one of the bullies who harassed Ryotaro.
** Of all the Japanese comedians who get bit parts in this show, the human form of Cockroach Dopant is a member of the comedy group ''Rahmens'', best known for his role as "Persocom" from the Japanese ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnzmXD2YTqc Mac and PC]]'' commercials.
** The teacher from "Find the C" which accosts the DanceBattler Dango could very well help Double with his crime-solving exploits as he is, after all, [[Series/JikuuSenshiSpielban a retired Metal Hero]].
** One of [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Two Girls]] from ''MadanSenkiRyukendo'' (either Ichiko or Ritsuko) appears in episode 9.
** The human form of the Sweets Dopant was in the J-Dramedy ''Shomuni: Power Office Girls''.
** Watcherman, the "Otaku blogger with a FunnyAfro". There is a funny thing about that, it's [[ActorAllusion not the first time that he has been]] [[Franchise/TrainMan an Otaku]]. The FunnyAfro was the dead giveaway.
*** And with him is the human actor to the Money Dopant, [[Franchise/TrainMan the worldly travelling]] one asking for the details in the live-drama... that's Money.
*** Watcherman's actor, Nasubi, is also well-known for being one of the first RealityTelevision stars ever.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichirou_Mizuki Aniki!]]
** TomoyukiDan plays Dr. Isaka on-screen, meaning [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Chronicle Asher]] is the Weatherman!
** Himeka from the "The Nightmarish H" and Nagisa from the "Beyond R" are both alumni from the ''MahouSenseiNegima'' live action series.
** Also appearing in ''Double Forever'' is Aya Sugimoto (see ActorAllusion above).
*** Speaking of ''[[Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon PGSM]]'', Miyuu Sawai, a.k.a. Sailor Moon herself, made an appearance in ''Begins Night'' as a pop idol who had died a year before, and whose supposed ghost has been appearing to her sister.
** [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder "Mr O'Shaughnessy"]] cameos in ''W Returns: Accel'' [[spoiler:as a PosthumousCharacter in flashbacks]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/FumihikoTachiki is both TheNarrator and the voiceover of the Gaia Memories, and by extension, the Double Driver.
** Mikio Jinno is played by Takeshi Nadagi, one half of the duo Dylan & Catherine, best known for performing the ''KeroroGunsou'' theme song "Fundari Kettari". Almost counts as a HeyItsThatGuy with Nadagi's InkSuitActor [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNhCM7VfvCE in the title sequence.]]
