* MemeticLoser: Kamen Rider Scissor isn't treated well by the fandom at all. Not only is he alive for two episodes total and killed off for the sole purpose of demonstrating the consequences of breaking the Mirror Monster contract, his Deck is a gimped version of Shinji's (His Sword Vent is replaced by his short bladed Scissors-Visor, his Guard Vent only has one shield instead of two, his Strike Vent has no ranged attack...), and his Final Vent is a little more than [[{{Narm}} using his monster to perform a cheerleader flip]].

Oh, not only that; Scissor also holds the distinction of being the Rider who appeared in the TV series with the shortest appearance time ''in the entire franchise''.

* MemeticMutation: '''TATAKAE''' (The Japanese word for fight) is commonly used by the fanbase to refer to this series due to its premise and heavy use of the word.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q84Vg1Nd4XE Revolution]], the [[SuperMode Survive Form]] theme. It sounds awesome and even encompasses everything about Shinji's character in the second half of the series in its first verse, and everything about Ren in its second verse. Its debut alongside Shinji's Survive Form, with Shinji activating Survive for the first time and declaring that [[MeaningfulName he definitely wouldn't die]] so Ren wouldn't [[TheseHandsHaveKilled become a killer]], made the song and the scene one of the most iconic of the series and possibly the franchise.

* BadassDecay: When Tiger first shows up, he's serving up TheWorfEffect like nobody's business ([[CurbStompBattle even to Asakura]]), but as time goes on and his real character comes through, he proves incapable of winning any fight at all.
** [[FridgeBrilliance A side effect of his deteriorating sanity, perhaps?]]

* GameBreaker: Ryuki and Knight's Survive Forms.
** Also Odin himself, able to ''beat'' a Rider in Survive form. Possibly invoked, because Shiro is the one controlling him and only brings him in to eliminate those who oppose him.
* HilariousInHindsight: One hallmark of ''Franchise/KamenRider'' and all {{Toku}} in general is the BlindIdiotTranslation subtitles on bootleg Hongkong [=DVDs=], so much that some characters get ''new names''. Goro in particular keeps getting called 'Inagaki', presumably because he shares the pet name 'Goro-chan' with Inagaki Goro of the immensely popular boyband [=SMAP=]. Fast forward 6 years to 2009, and the real Inagaki Goro lands the role of (the non-canon) Film/KamenRiderG.

** Perhaps the funniest bad translation is when Zolda summons his giant side-held cannon. His visor calls out, "Shoot Vent!" The subtitle for that line? "Jet Plane Landing!" Well, the cannon's *sorta* jetplane shaped if you squint...
*** Even worse is that the Visors are already in English...

* {{Narm}}: Verde's Final Vent is one of the nastiest: with his chameleon monster's tongue acting as a bungee cord, he drops in on his opponent, grabbing him upside down, then bungees back up, flipping around twice before SMASHING his opponent head first into the concrete. Then the dust clears and we see the victim's legs ''still sticking into the air'' for a bit before toppling over. ...Yeah.

* TheWoobie: Yui. Let's count the ways, shall we? She and her brother spend their early childhood locked up in their home by their own parents, with nothing but drawing and a not-so-imaginary world to comfort them. Then, she suddenly dies at age seven, and is replaced by her Mirror World self in her brother's DealWithTheDevil. Following their parents' deaths, she and Shirou are forcibly separated. Twelve years later she finds out that she's not even real, she's only living on borrowed time and will disappear forever once she turns twenty, ''and'' that her brother is perfectly willing to manipulate twelve people - two of which are her closest friends - into killing each other in his mad scheme to save her. ''And'' that her drawings with her brother are what became the Mirror Monsters that are snatching people away and devouring them in seconds. Jesus.
** Oh, [[FromBadtoWorse it gets better]]. She gets to find all this out by ''being targeted for death'' by those who've worked it out, snatched by monsters, and finding herself starting to disintegrate at times. And it can all only be settled [[spoiler: by ''convincing her brother to let her death stick.'' The final scenes make it clear that to the world, Yui died long ago and ''stayed'' that way. (Her grandmother is all alone in the tea-house, and there's a picture of Shiro and Yui as kids.)]]

** As noted above, a lot of people began comparing this to Madoka Magica. Apparently someone at Toei took note of this, since [[Creator/GenUrobuchi the writer]] for Madoka Magica would end up writing ''Series/KamenRiderGaim''.

** Asakura manages to cram in a lot even for his prominence in the series:
*** As a child, [[SelfMadeOrphan he set fire to his own house and killed his parents]] in attempt to kill his little brother because [[EvilIsPetty he found him annoying]].
*** He committed a murder off-screen because the person in question annoyed him.
*** Lies about having tried to save his little brother and pretends to care about him so he can lure him out and kill him.
** Toujo crosses it when he kills Kagawa, believing that sacrificing those closest to him made a hero, and then crosses it again when he tries to kill Sano, after Sano had taken him and been so kind to him.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Most of the riders are assholes, the main character can almost never tell when he shouldn't trust somebody, and the riders who ''are'' good will likely die with everyone else. [[spoiler: Ironically, Shiro realizes that in the end, the cycle he's created will just cause more pointless despair, and uses the Time Vent to prevent the entire war altogether.]]

* DarkIsNotEvil: Ren could count. He's an AntiHero close to JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope. But he keeps his word and compared to other riders´ selfish motives, he tries to save a person dear to him. Also, he saves Kido´s butt (and not only his) more than a few times.

* MagnificentBastard: Kitaoka.

* %%* LoveToHate: Asakura.

* OddFriendship: Ren and Kido definitely qualify. DeadpanSnarker and a NaiveNewcomer both in ThereCanBeOnlyOne setting. Still, they trust each other and fight together more often than they try to kill each other.



* TropeCodifier: Ryuki influenced later Rider shows A LOT. Collectible devices, talking TransformationTrinket (Though that was actually for their weapons) and rival Riders? Ryuki was the one that started the trends that would be present in every show afterward.
** It also popularised many of the tropes established with [[ThereCanOnlyBeOne Battle-Royale]] style anime in Japan, being the first to present combatants fighting alongside supernatural entities, and the idea of the battles being fought for the sake of a wish being granted.
