* 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.
** 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.
* 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, while the horns make it sound appropriately superheroic). Take a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yULM42gZfLw listen]].
* CutAndPasteTranslation: A look at the differences and similarities between an episode and its Japanese counterpart can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQYpuINSXyE here]].
* 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.
* 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]] who are the {{Spiritual Successor}}s of the original duo.
* {{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.
* MemeticMutation: The Masked Rider Warriors. Particularly Skyrider calling himself Amazon.
* {{Narm}}:
** 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[[note]]ironically, they refer to it correctly as "Z-Cross", as opposed to making the common mistake of referring to "ZX"[[/note]].
** It gets even worse when [[Series/KamenRiderSkyrider Skyrider]] announces his name (I AM AMAZON!!!!!!). This [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6_ctkElxBg video]] probably will cause some MemeticMutation.
** Also, they had [[Series/KamenRiderStronger Stronger]], the dude [[BroughtToYouByTheLetterS with the giant "S" on his chest]], announce himself as "[[Series/KamenRiderX Masked Rider]] ''[[Series/KamenRiderX X]]''." Bwuh...?
** This may have been due to the rider names being read off in chronological order, which didn't match up with the footage. The script seemed to assume that [[Series/KamenRider Kamen Rider 2]] and [[Series/KamenRiderV3 Riderman]] would be there, but they weren't filmed doing their roll call (Rider 2 did appear at the start of the scene but never got to say a name), so V3 got the line that would have gone to Rider 2, X got the line that would have gone to V3, and all the others were moved up two slots.
* 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.
