** At least for those familiar with ''Franchise/KamenRider''. The episode "The Invasion Of Leawood" features the Showa Riders as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToqZJA3xhoQ The Masked Rider Warriors]]". In one scene they give a roll call of their names, only to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQYpuINSXyE#t=8m49s mix them up with the other Riders.]] The only ones who didn't suffer from this were the ones who got new names (Warrior Commander, Warrior Leader, Strongman [which even then was likely meant for Stronger and not [[KamenRiderSuper1 Super-1]]]), and Film/KamenRiderZX, who alone escapes with his name intact.

Added DiffLines:

** AudienceColoringAdaptation: Toei themselves soon followed the example of Steve Wang, starting with ''Series/KamenRiderDouble''[[note]]It's likely that ''Decade'', ''Double'''s immediate successor, would have been the first series to do this had it not been already planned before ''Dragon Knight''[[/note]]. Saban themselves also seems to have taken this stance as well, given that they eventually applied for a trademark that many guessed would lead to an adaptation of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' - Power Rider; however, nothing came of this, since Saban let the trademark expire.

** While Patsy and Herbie are considered the Bulk and Skull of this show, they're similar to [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Devin and Cassidy]].

* {{Macekre}}{{Macekre}}: How this series is seen by its detractors. This adaptation removed all serious bits from the original ''Black RX'' and made it look more like a cheesy sitcom in which an alien tries to adjust to life on earth, with some superhero action added in to cash in on the success of ''Power Rangers''. It also used footage from other sources than ''Black RX'' and made no real effort to hide this.



* TheScrappy: Ferbus.

* TheScrappy: Ferbus. He has an annoying high pitched voice, does nothing really useful and gets into trouble every few episodes, forcing Dex to go out of his way to save him.

* HilariousInHindsight: The idea of a Kamen Rider who goes to high school might have seemed ridiculous at the time. Flash forward to 2008, and the non-serial movie for ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' has the titular rider become a high-schooler. 3 years after that,''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' came along.

to:

* FandomBerserkButton: The series itself is one for the Kamen Rider fanbase. You're probably going to win the lottery and get struck by lightning on the same day before you find someone who likes Kamen Rider that also likes this series.

* AwesomeMusic: The opening theme is surprisingly good (it almost sounds like a tribal tune with the heavy use of drums and the "MASKED RIDER!" chants). Take a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yULM42gZfLw listen]].

* AdaptationDisplacement: Not just to the Franchise/KamenRider franchise, but to the name "Masked Rider" itself. In Japan, ''Masked Rider'' is just ''Kamen Rider'' written in English, but overseas it is mostly associated with Saban's adaptation of ''RX'' than anything else. When Steve Wang produced ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'', he refused to use the "Masked Rider" name despite Ishinomori Production's insistence and he had to convince them to [[KeepItForeign keep it as]] "Kamen Rider" instead.
