* OldShame: Of a sort with how they reportedly left the "Kamen Rider" designation untranslated to avoid association with Saban's earlier, much-loathed import.

** Believe it or not, '''Creator/JasonDavidFrank''' almost got the role of Len. However, due to producers not wanting people to believe ''Dragon Knight'' was in the same universe as ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', the role went to Matt Mullins - ironically enough, had the show's producers adapted any post-''Wizard'' Kamen Rider series, odds are that they would likely have had to make the series in the same universe as ''Power Rangers'', in order to adapt the crossovers between ''Kamen Rider'' and ''Super Sentai''.

** The ''World of Ryuki'' arc in ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' featured Kamen Rider Abyss. Said arc aired in the middle of ''Dragon Knight''. However, the reason Abyss was not used was because of the fact that the rider was a part of ''Decade'''s license - if Admoss wanted to use Abyss, they would have had to have bought the rights to ''Decade''.

** Between his bat and knight motif and airing on a network that once had a large amount of DC comics shows, is anyone surprise a lot of fans call Len/Wing Knight "Batman"?

** According to an interview with one of the writers, Grant was originally conceived as an eco-terrorist who Xaviax coerced into believing that Dragon and Wing Knight were working for a corporation that was polluting the environment. Actor Christopher Babers also said in an interview that he believed that Camo had a soft side deep down that might've been a game-changer had he had a bigger role.

Added DiffLines:

* TheCastShowoff:
** The third episode features a scene where Len, portrayed by karate champion Matt Mullins, trains on a rooftop. Although it makes sense for the character, the scene has absolutely no plot relevance. Looks good, though...
** Later in the season, there's a sparring scene between Len and the Advent Master, played by Mark Decascos. That scene exists to show off their skills.
