Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader[=/=]GenreTurningPoint: Because of how absurdly popular it was, virtually every other ''Kamen Rider'' series that followed Den-O has taken at least one cue from it. It also popularized the two-episode arc in Kamen Rider, which, though used in previous series, went on to be the standard episode format until [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Gaim]] broke the trend.

Added DiffLines:

* ActingForTwo: A necessity for the characters who get possessed by the Imagin, who for most of the series are unable to manifest otherwise. Takeru Satoh in particular had effectively to play ''seven'' characters onscreen, each of them distinct beyond the makeup.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Not a moment from the show itself, but from TV-Nihon's translation. For whatever reason, someone thought that when Owner said the line "mesdames et messieurs." he was saying "[[http://static.tumblr.com/a2640763daa0139da574fc038057839a/wfvygey/Ei6my7f1j/tumblr_static_1382137517648.png Banana New Shoe]]". This actually lead TV-N to release a V2 of the subs, which is something they ''don't usually do''. It's been years since then, but Banana New Shoe is still considered a go-to for advising against watching TV-N subs.

** Gun-wielding Riders tend to fall under TheStraightMan ([[Series/KamenRiderAgito G3-X,]] [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Garren,]] [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Ibuki]]) or the SmugSnake ([[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Zolda,]] [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Drake]]). Ryutaros is literally [[PsychopathicManchild the last person you'd trust with a gun]].

** Ryotaro SUCKS as a fighter during most of the series, relying in the Taros to posess him so they can fight using his body. Then, in 2012, his actor goes into playing [[RurouniKenshin Himura Battousai]].

** Den-O's habit of always going back to Feudal Japan in the movies is ''still'' continued through Ryotaro, [[RurouniKenshin through different means]]. Even better, Kintaros-posessed Ryotaro is basically a PaletteSwap of Kenshin, and Momo!Ryo is basically an Expy of Sanosuke.

Added DiffLines:

* ExponentialPlotDelay: The series overall has a rather lax method of informing the audience of why things are occurring as they are. For example, it's only at the first movie (set half-way through the series) that the audience (and Ryotaro for that matter) learn as to why everything is put back into place after the interference in time is neutralized. [[spoiler:To be fair, the villains are as much in the dark as the heroes are, and all the destruction is their attempt to get things rolling in their favor]].

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: An understated version, but near ''any'' scene where someone is possessed by one of the Taros, Sieg or Deneb, the dubbing is damn near perfect, making it seem as though the person really is speaking the voices. The actors themselves do a great job of portraying the personalities of the Imagin possessing them.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Of course, some "fans" were already bitching because the series was very stylistically different from previous Rider shows, with giant monsters and mecha a bit more like a sentai show. Some got the hell over it, some still think that it ruined ''Kamen Rider'' forever.

them, effectively acting as different characters.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Of course, some "fans" were already bitching because The stylistic differences compared to previous series, from the giant monsters, mecha-like trains and the vast amount of humor, made a portion of Rider fans feel the series was very stylistically different from previous Rider shows, with giant monsters and mecha closer to a bit more like a sentai show. Sentai series. Some got the hell over it, some still think past this initial feeling, while others claim that it ruined ''Kamen Rider'' forever.all Kamen Rider series since.

** The fight against Nega Den-O itself, though inventive in that everyone swaps weapons around to counter the new ones being shown, comes to a jarring close in that, even when in Climax form, none of the Taros are able to match him. Things only turn around for them from the inclusion of Kiva, [[ContinuitySnarl who, unlike in his own series, wasn't directed to the fight, but simply managed to ''find it'' while hunting down fangire.]] [[note]]For those not in the know, Kiva is led to fangire attacks he's unaware of thanks to a unique violin he has at his home, which mentally directs him to fights he isn't already present at. Wataru is entirely too passive to actively roam the streets randomly looking for fangire to kill.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** Climax Deka is this in a multitude of ways. Negataros has a whole gang of humans, Fangire, Imagin [[spoiler:and even a time train]] at his disposal, yet nothing interesting is done with it. He simply wants to make an empire of evil because...evil. This is only made worse by the fact that Kiva has less than ten minutes of screen time in a movie that is supposed to be a crossover with him, serving only to help the protagonists when they are stuck by the plot.

** Worth pointing out, the Owner's actor Kenjiro Ishimaru is a regular competitor on ''NinjaWarrior'' and does well despite being in his 50s. CrazyAwesome character ''and'' actor!
