* TearJerker: [[spoiler:Trial B's death]].
** Also, the whole damn series finale. [[spoiler: Kenzaki [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices his humanity to save Hajime and the world from annihilation.]] As a result, he has to stay as far away from any of his friends, including Hajime and Tachibana, as possible. [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck....]] It gets worse if you take the crossovers as canon to the Blade universe, in which Kenzaki comes back in Series/KamenRiderDecade as a completely different person, [[{{Jerkass}} and not in the good way]]. Though his later appearance during the events of Series/KamenRiderExAid [[BigDamnHeroes is apparently better]]]].
** 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.]]

** Bench. [[labelnote:Explanation (Spoilers)]]Whenever discussions about Blade occur, people usually post pictures of the bench that Kenzaki was sitting on in the final episode due to it being a massive TearJerker.[[/labelnote]]

** [[BlindIdiotTranslation "IS HOPE ACUTE?"]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]TV-Nihon's translation of the series is riddled with tons of translation errors and awkward phrasing, even by their standards. This particular bit, from their translation of the first opening, is the most infamous (A more accurate translation of the line in question would be "Is it hope or despair?").[[/labelnote]]

** 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 ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Suzumiya Haruhi 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''.

*** [[https://youtu.be/L00KRKldNaY?t=2m16s ORE NO KARADA WO BOROBORO DA!!]][[labelnote:Explanation]]Tachibana screams this in an over-the-top fashion that it sounds more hammy than dramatic. The line translates to "My body is breaking down!"[[/labelnote]]

*** [[https://youtu.be/L00KRKldNaY?t=2m16s The set-up for the meme above (Garren half-peeking through a wall) is pretty much a meme of its own. When scenes from shows, usually from other tokusatsu, have a character or group of characters peeking through a wall, expect someone captioning it with "Did you really betray <group>?"

*** And then there's (^U^) for Kamen Rider Glaive, though rather taken from the rider suit like those other emoticons, it is taken from his actor. And even then, it is based on the A. R. version of ''Missing Ace'' from ''KamenRiderDecade'' (there called [=DiEnd=] World as it also ties to his backstory). There Glaive is donned by Junichi Kaito (as with other A. R. Worlds, he is based on a character from the main world, this one being Junichi Shimura, although this time he is played by the same actor). His acting there is very memetic to the Japanese due to the mix of SlasherSmile and StepfordSmiler, hence the happy emoticon. Because the character is played by the same actor and that the A. R. World is based from a movie of ''Kamen Rider Blade'', this emoticon (along with the other memes associated with the character - like the dissonant smiling and repeated phrase of "Brother!") have been treated as some sort of CanonImmigrant to ''Blade'' memes. It's telling that whenever he is included, they usually refer to the ''Decade'' version than the ''Missing Ace'' version.

** Hiroshi Tennoji, the series' true BigBad, absolutely reeks of [[ItsAllAboutMe obsession for self-preservation]] [[TakeOverTheWorld and world domination by any means necessary]]. As the head of [=BOARD=], he creates the Battle Fight by releasing the Undead and manipulating his contracted Kamen Riders to take them out. As the battle progressed, he invented the Trials and the Titan Undead, all so he could buy himself time to create Kerberos, an artificial Undead with DNA from all 53 Undead that could surpass the Black Joker itself. Tennoji's invention kills the entire [=BOARD=] staff upon being born from the Stone of Sealing before he seals the artificial Undead to create a new Change Card. He uses the card to transform into Kerberos II before revealing his dream: [[TheCaligula to create a new world order with himself as its ruler.]] It takes all four Riders ([[SuperMode with Blade in his King Form and Garren in his Jack form]]) to stop Tennoji once and for all.
