* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: A possible case mid-way through the show. [[spoiler:Was Torque's attempt to turn Thrust against Xaviax a grab for power, or did he feel genuine remorse about what he'd done so far and wanted to make amends?]]

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: While the American theme is pretty awesome, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5o16744SCE Dive into the Mirror]]'' simply must be heard to be believed. Yes, ''that'' is the Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight theme in Japan. It might help explain why they loved the show so much.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: When the Cho brothers confront Len for the first time, arrogantly assuming they have a two-to-one advantage, Len gives them a lesson in humility by snatching their decks right out of their hands and kicking their asses all over Ventara, all ''without'' transforming.
** Kit and Adam announcing their entrance with a double Strike Vent against Xaviax.[[note]]It doesn't hurt to realize that this is something fans of Ryuki had been ''begging'' for since Ryuga (Onyx's Japanese counterpart) first showed up in the Ryuki movie.[[/note]]

* IronWoobie: Thrust may be short-tempered and arrogant, but he's had his entire life ruined by Xaviax's machinations and just wants it back.

* MisBlamed: It's frequently believed that ''DK'' was cancelled by CW [=4Kids=]; in truth, the last two episodes just didn't air before the cut-off point where old shows were cycled out for new ones. CW actually really liked the series and continued to market and air the show despite low ratings, it was just a time policy they couldn't break.

* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Discussed by Maya and Kase near the end, when they compare their respective methods of fighting evil - Maya took a go at ActionGirl heroics but doesn't think it's her style, preferring to spread the truth as an IntrepidReporter; Kase respects what she does. Since they're both girls, it also crosses with RealWomenNeverWearDresses.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Strike for being an [[EvilIsCool undisputed]] BadAss, Thrust for being a compelling [[ArrogantKungFuGuy flawed]]-yet-[[AntiHero tragic]] figure (and still quite badass), and Sting for being a [[TheWoobie Woobie]] par-excellence.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectFailure: You can quite easily tell when the show switches over to ''Ryuki'' footage- that show plus ''Faiz'' and ''Blade'' all had this odd, videotape-style effect over the images, making the footage look soft and a bit blurry.
