* SpecialEffectsFailure: They ''really'' should have stuck to practical effects for the monster explosions. They look like something out of a PS1 game.

* FoeYay: Ichijou and B1/Rose Grongi.

* FoeYay: Ichijou Ichijo and B1/Rose Grongi.



** It's implied that Ichijou is a bit stand-offish but he warms up to Godai rather quickly. At one point Tsubaki (one Ichijou's closer friends) calls Godai "his true love", poking at how attached Ichijou has become to Godai.
** The (dubiously canon) novel takes it further. Godai vanished after the events of Kuuga and only returns at the end of the novel 13 years later, defeating a monster terrorizing the city. Ichijou ends up being knocked unconscious during the incident and wakes on Godai's shoulder the way he did 13 years before. When Godai makes to go on his way Ichijou breaks down in TEARS and BEGS Godai not to leave again. [[TearJerker Godai still leaves]].

** Problem being, of course, that we don't see it. The entire first fight between them is offscreen and Yuusuke bounces back from it with no problem. It kinda makes Episode 47 a bit of a mind screw considering the Previews showed us a fight between them and then...nothing.
* PuritySue: Yuusuke Godai. He is always happy, has no flaws or weaknesses (being overly willing to sacrifice himself to protect others does ''not'' count as a flaw - Tell that to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Shirou]]), and everyone around him not only instantly loved him, but was also infected by his happiness.

*** Kuuga's tone in general is a lot more deconstructive then even the later shows would be, including Monsters literally exploding in block wide explosions, and Kuuga being the only rider.
*** In a metasense, Kuuga's actor more or less disowning the role, which was one of the reasons for the AU plot in Decade.

* GameBreaker: '''Ultimate''' Form. It's '''normal punches and kicks''' are as powerful as Amazing Mighty's Amazing Mighty Kick.

Added DiffLines:

** Another explanation is that they're attempting to exploit ItOnlyWorksOnce. The Grongi had to be revived ''specifically as a result'' of having fought a Kuuga in the past, who at least a couple note was a better warrior than the present-day iteration, so they may just think they've got an edge this time around...


Added DiffLines:

** SpecialEffectsEvolution: At the same time, this allowed them to have explosions in locations that would have been suicidally absurd to use practical effects in/on, and made some of the NightmareFuel possible in the first place.

** Related to the above, Ultimate Form being the MemeticBadass form of all the Heisei riders for its simple yet sleek and regal design, black color, and the fact that apparently it can [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the world with its full power]].[[note]]bear in mind, this is never stated or even hinted at in the actual series[[/note]]

** The resurrection of the Grongi in the first episode. A massive shape only seen in shadow slaughters the excavation group that aaccidentally unleashed him, then walks slowly across the countryside, causing trees and objects to ''explode'' with his mere presence before reviving the Grongi, causing dozens of hands to burst out of the ground like a zombie film.
