* 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.

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

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]].

** 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.

* 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.

* TheScrappy: Ferbus.
* TheyJustDidntCare: This probably has to do more with a low budget than anything else, but when the show uses footage from other Kamen Rider works ''(ZO being the most blatant)'' and doesn't try to film new footage instead... and when the new footage is basically "three stooges with monsters" featuring Dex fighting off insectoids with cream pies in one example... yeah...

* InkStainAdaptation: Not just to the Franchise/KamenRider franchise, but to the name "Masked Rider" itself. Even though "Masked Rider" is used in official merchandising in Japan (even on the logos of the shows), most English-speaking fans refused to use in order to avoid confusion with the Saban version. When Steve Wang was commissioned to make ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'', even he refused to use "Masked Rider" and was forced to convince Ishinomori Production to [[KeepItForeign keep it as]] "Kamen Rider" instead.
