* {{Narm}}: There's a ''lot'' of this in the first ten episodes of the series, mainly due to Kenzaki's actor slurring a lot of his lines as mentioned above (Though, this is only noticeable if the viewer knows Japanese). Some standout examples include the aforementioned scene in episode 1, and Kenzaki's reaction to Tachibana telling him that [[spoiler: the Rider System will eventually destroy both of them]] in episode 3.

* FountainOfMemes: In its native Japan; other than the Ondulish "language" this series Riders (especially Garren, for some reason) tend to cross over in other series fan art.

* MemeticMutation: A relatively unknown meme in the West (for obvious reasons), the Japanese have had a lot of fun with ''Kamen Rider Blade''. ''Onduru-Go'' (roughly translated as "The Ondul Language" or "Ondulish"), is a meme originating from protagonists, Kenzaki's fairly heavy-handed enunciations. The meme name comes from the first episode where Kenzaki is supposed to be saying, ''Hontou ni uragittan desuka!?'' ("Have you really betrayed us?"), but ended up sounding like, ''Onduru ruragittan disukaa!?'' Since then, it's reached a fair amount of popularity as a Japan-based net meme and has in fact received reference within the Blade AlternateUniverse episodes of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'', as well as a shout-out in ''SuzumiyaHaruhi no Yuutsu''. It got another nod in the net movies for ''Let's Go Kamen Rider'' (the 40th anniversary movie), where the phrase that inspired the meme is the title of the episode that focuses on Blade. Kenzaki, for his part, has since been labelled the ''Kenjaki, the Prince of Ondul Planet''.

**A meme concerning this scene does exist in considerable parts of the English speaking fandom, though not for the same reasons. It concerns the line: "Tachibana, why are you watching? Are you a traitor?". This stems from the fact some found it very hard to take the scene seriously, and it grew from there.

** Sakuya Tachibana/Garren supporters point out the aesthetic contrasts between Blade and Garren that in any other show would be the ideal Primary Rider-Second Rider dynamic. Not only are their powers both based on the BOARD-designed Rider System (Chalice's originates from his nature as the Joker Undead, while Leangle's Rider System was designed by an Undead), there's also the contrasting nature of their animal motifs ([[JapaneseBeetleBrothers Kenzaki's Rhinoceros Beetle to Tachibana's Stag Beetle]]) and the [[RedOniBlueOni blue-red]] contrast of their suits. Additionally, Tachibana's FanFavorite status and the fact that he is the second Rider to appear in the series proper (as well as having the first arc of the series being essentially devoted to him) provides extra fuel to the argument.

** Those who argue in favor of Hajime Aikawa/Chalice point out his status as the Deuteragonist making his relationship with the main character one that receives more focus than the latter's relationship with Sakuya Tachibana/Garren. In relation, Hajime receives second billing in the credits and is also the second character to feature after Blade in the TitleSequence.

He's also the only Rider to receive a SuperMode equivalent to Kenzaki's King Form while Garren only has a [[MidSeasonUpgrade Jack Form]] and Leangle has nothing. ** Sakuya Tachibana/Garren supporters point out the aesthetic contrasts between Blade and Garren that in any other show would be the ideal Primary Rider-Second Rider dynamic.

In the [[KamenRiderClimaxHeroes Climax Heroes]] and [[KamenRiderBattrideWar Battride War]] games, Garren is treated as the Second Rider. But in the Ganbaride games, promotional cards featuring the Primary Rider in tandem with the Secondary Rider depict Chalice as the Secondary Rider.

* {{Wangst}}: Mutsuki's childhood trauma from being kidnapped and locked into a safety box as an infant was brought up early in the series, apparently reinforcing his resolve to become a Rider...at least until the trauma's resolved and the Wangst is all that remained.

** Even worse is the novel continuation, where [[spoiler: Kazuma has been WalkingTheEarth for 300 years and has become a DeathSeeker because of all he's had to give up. Even worse, he can't die at all, since if he were to die Hajime would be unsealed.]]
