** [[PoisonousFriend Isaka]] / [[AgentPeacock Peacock Undead]] exemplifies how low [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bastards]] can go. As the first Category Jack Undead, he designed Rider System 3, a belt that allows the user to transform into Kamen Rider Leangle. Unfortunately, that same belt requires using an improperly sealed Ace card that contains the Spider Undead, meaning that its user would be mentally enslaved by the Undead (as later seen with Mutsuki). After designing the corrupted Rider System, he brainwashed many people that he was going to use as expendable slaves to create his "Ultimate Rider". When this plan failed, Isaka turns his attention to Sakuya Tachibana and attempts to retrieve him as a prototype user. Isaka knows about Tachibana's subconscious fear and takes advantage of it to [[CurbStompBattle curbstomp]] him. Isaka tricks his defeated opponent to getting addicted to [[FantasticDrug Schuld Ketsner seaweed]], lying that the aggression-inducing plant would eliminate fear. [[spoiler:When Tachibana's girlfriend Sayoko notices her lover's addiction, Isaka smugly kills her for attempting to clean up her lover.]]

* CompleteMonster:
* [[AGodAmI Hiroshi Tennoji]] serves as the series' true BigBad and absolutely reeks of [[ItsAllAboutMe obsession for self-preservation]] 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]]. Wishing to [[InTheirOwnImage remake the world under him]], his actions would produce countless tragedies throughout the series.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The Joker Undead defies whatever connotations its name implies, by being quite possibly the scariest monster in the show, despite being armed with just a knife. [[Film/TheDarkKnight Heath Ledger would do the same thing some years later]].



* HilariousInHindsight: This series is filled with things that would be awesome {{Mythology Gag}}s if this series had aired about ten years later. A wind-powered Rider whose Rider Kick lifts its Rider in a cyclone, and who is associated with black and the joker? [[Series/KamenRiderDouble We'll see it again five years later.]] Also, a password at one point is "Double Joker." And we'll be seeing the JapaneseBeetleBrothers with a RedOniBlueOni dynamic again in ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto,'' though with the colors swapped to fit the trope better. Also, the card names are two words: the effect and the animal the sealed undead is based on. This makes the card Blade uses for changing "Change Beetle," a phrase we'll become very familiar with in ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto.''

* 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.]]

** [[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 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>?"
