Added DiffLines:

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Ryuki got hit by this HARD. Make no mistake, fans revere it today, but when it came out a lot were caught off-guard by the extremely dark tone of the series. But Ryuki codified two important tropes that would be used later in the Heisei era: Talking TransformationTrinket and card-based powers and weapons. The former was ESPECIALLY significant since it added a lot of entertainment and character to each Henshin, while the latter influenced ''Series/KamenRiderBlade'' and ''Series/KamenRiderDecade''.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Mitsuru may have been greedy, a backstabber when it came to deals, and only kept fighting for his selfish desire of happiness, but for most of his life, he never felt happy due to his father disowning him, unknowingly signed his own death sentence thinking he could use it to earn some money, and is hated by just about everybody else. And when he seems to have finally gotten a happy life with a girlfriend without killing anyone, Kanzaki dragged him back in even after he forfeited, and gets killed in the Mirror World while futily trying to call out to said girlfriend after being betrayed by his friend.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Asakura remains a popular villain in the Rider franchise. Up until Kitaoka's return in Chou Super Hero Taisen, he's the only Ryuki Rider to reappear in [[Series/KamenRiderDecade future]] [[Series/KamenRiderExAid installments]] by the original actor, whether it's voice only (Decade) or in person (Ex-Aid).

* CounterpartComparison: Gets a lot with ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''.
* 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.]]

''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. This gets grimly hilarious when Gen Urobuchi, the creator of Madoka gets to write a Kamen Rider series. It took eleven years.''Series/KamenRiderGaim'' draws more comparisons with Ryuki and Madoka than any other series for the right reasons.
* 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. Not to speak about how this is the only series when you can't seriously blame anyone for trying to kill you, simply because that's the way things are supposed to be. [[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.]]



* MagnificentBastard: Kitaoka.

to:

* MagnificentBastard: Kitaoka.Kitaoka runs on the stuff. Several [[Series/KamenRiderDrive riders]] would have [[Series/KamenRiderGhost similar]] [[Series/KamenRiderExAid traits]] or be outrightly [[Series/KamenRiderGaim alikened]] to him. Asakura would have couple moments too, showing that he can be quit cunning despite his barely even HairTriggerTemper and insanity. And yeah, other [[Series/KamenRiderExAid insane yet cunning]] riders would be alikened to him too.



* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Asakura is an EnsembleDarkhorse, but how evil he is means most everybody in the show hates him.

to:

* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Asakura is an EnsembleDarkhorse, EnsembleDarkhorse as the archetype evil rider of Heisei era, but considering just how evil he is means most everybody in the show hates him.

** To give you a point on how almost every Rider in Ryuki is a jerk, only ''two'' ([[TheHero Shinji/Ryuki]] and [[NiceGuy Tezuka/Raia]]) can be considered as pure heroes; as they have the same end goal, to stop the Rider War from happening. ''Seven'' can be considered as villains ([[CorruptCop Sudo/Scissors]], [[AxCrazy Asakura/Ouja]], [[ManipulativeBastard Jun/Gai]], [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Tojo/Tiger]], [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Takamizawa/Verde]], [[EvilCounterpart Dark Shinji/Ryuga]], and [[DragonInChief Odin]]), with the other four being an AntiHero ([[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ren/Knight]], [[AmoralAttorney Kitaoka/Zolda]], [[RevengeBeforeReason Miho]]/[[ActionGirl Femme]], and [[SpoiledBrat Mitsuru/Imperer]]).

* ParanoiaFuel: Behind every reflective surface (Mirrors, windows, any body of water, YOUR FRICKING COMPUTER SCREEN) is a monster...wait, I mean an ''army'' of monsters that is just waiting to [[ImAHumanitarian have you for dinner.]] They will pull you through the portal into the Mirror World, and kill you, leaving no trace behind and making it impossible for anyone to figure out how you were killed. If by some fluke you avoid the initial attack, they will not just try for someone else. They will keep hunting YOU down specifically until they get you. Also, the Mirror World is very hostile to those not native to it, and if you are there for too long, you will dissolve and die anyway (if you haven't already been eaten). Pleasant Dreams.

* 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 (along with Grant/Camo from ''[[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight Dragon Knight]]'') also holds the distinction of being the Rider who appeared in the TV series with the shortest appearance time ''in the entire franchise''.
