Film: OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders
OOO, Den-O, All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders is 40th anniversary movie of the Kamen Rider franchise. Premiered in Japanese theatres on April 1, 2011.After Ankh accidentally coughs up a Cell Medal in the past while travelling with New Den-O, Shocker uses the technology to create a new Kaijin that manages to defeat the original Double Riders. Due to this, the past is rewritten so that Dai-Shocker now rules the world, and all the other Riders cease to exist. It's up to the Kamen Riders OOO, Den-O and New Den-O, accompanied by Ankh, to fix the mess they caused and save all of humanity.
This movie contains examples of the following tropes:
- Adaptational Badass: The Great Leader's original incarnation didn't put up much of a fight. This one takes all of the Riders to finally put down.
- Adaptational Heroism: When the the secondary Riders show up for the All Rider Break, some of them are from Ryuki, which means a lot of them aren't the "team up and take on an Evil Overlord" type. We're lookin' at you, Takeshi Asakura (though by no means only at you.)
- Arc Number: 40
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: King Dark, naturally. However, even he's dwarfed by the Great Leader's One-Winged Angel form, which destroys King Dark just by showing up.
- Bad Future: Ankh unwittingly causes a Butterfly Effect when he gets jostled hard enough to cough up a Cell Medal while in the past with New Den-O. This Cell Medal is picked up by a Shocker goon, who then takes it to General Black. As it turns out, they had been experimenting with a reverse-engineered Core Medal. The resulting Greeed ended up defeating the Double Riders, causing a future where Shocker and other such evil organizations control the world.
- Big Bad: Only the Great Leader of Shocker himself.
- Big Damn Heroes: During the battle in the present, Kamen Rider V3 arrives, leading the other main Kamen Riders. When the Great Leader transforms, Kamen Rider Birth arrives, leading the Secondary Riders.
- Canon Welding: When General Shadow runs away, he is stopped by four other heroes. As Owner notes, "Kamen Riders aren't the only allies of justice." These four heroes are Kikaider, Kikaider 01, Inazuman, and Kaiketsu Zubat, all made by Shotaro Ishinomori.
- Chekhov's Gunman: the Man in White who threw the OOO Driver back to Eiji.
- Chekhov's Gag: at the beginning of the film, OOO fights three Imagin, believing them to be Yummy even though they don't bleed Cell Medals, but Ankh arrives and tells him they're not Yummy at all. Yet Ankh was later able to procure a Core Medal from another Imagin: Momotaros.
- Continuity Porn: But of course. The most obscure reference is either Snack Amigo (Chiyoko's has turned into one; it was the hangout in the original series for about five episodes or so.) or Mitsuru and Naoki (names not chosen by accident; they're two kids who became Those Two Guys in the last arc of the original series; apparently they were from the future all along?) Also, Nokko is named for three girls with -okko names. And of course, every monster was a Monster of the Week from a past series, some every bit as old as Snack Amigo.
- Demoted to Extra: Decade, despite having the specific role of Planar Champion, his appearance here has him as Fake Shemp in a quick cameo like many of the past Riders. Also, there is no hint of Ryotaro and Hana, the main human characters of the original Den-O series.
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: Kamen Rider Birth and dozens of other extra riders suddenly arrive to back up the primary riders when the Great Leader becomes Rock Great Leader.
- Eleventh Hour Superpower: Ankh ends up being able snatch away the Core Medal that started the trouble, as well as yank a Medal from Momotaros, giving them to Eiji to become Kamen Rider OOO TaMaShii Combo.
- Evil Versus Oblivion: One way to look at many of the villainous Riders who teamed up to defeat the Great Leader. While some of them are nasties, the Great Leader is currently going Omnicidal Maniac and destroying his own minions along with the heroes...
- Fake Shemp: Inevitable, given the number of past heroes and villains going back to 1971. Aside from the main stars, almost all of the Kamen Riders appear in-costume only and voiced by replacement voice actors. It also affects many of the villains, along with the other four "allies of justice", though Hiroshi Miyauchi returns to voice Zubat as well as V3, and Tomokazu Seki, who previously voiced Kikaider in Android Kikaider: The Animation, voices the tokusatsu incarnation of the character here. Really, it's surprising that so many were the original actors.
- For Want of a Nail: The whole reason that the Bad Future exists is because Ankh's greed in trying to get the Core Medals caused him to leave, causing Eiji to go after him and get into a scuffle. One of his Cell Medals dropped out during the scuffle and escalated to the main plot of the movie.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: during the All-Rider Break, it can be picked out that not every Rider is riding a motorcycle. Agito's Tornador is on its Hover Board form, what looks like Double's RevolGarry bringing up the rear, among others.
- Gas Mask Mooks: The Shocker Greeed. The gas mask is probably inspired by the look of the Shocker Soldiers in Kamen Rider: The First and Kamen Rider: The Next.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: the first promotional trailer features the DenLiner going past images of the headlining Riders in reverse chronological order (from OOO to Ichigo), that ends with the Shocker mooks.
- Legion of Doom: Not Dai-Shocker, or Super Shocker. Instead its the original Shocker, only this time its ambitions to take over the world have been more fruitful thanks to the Shocker Greeed. By 2011, their ranks consist of villains and monsters from across Kamen Rider history. Thankfully, the respective riders they fought against appear to take them on once more.
- Mascot Mook: The Shocker Soldiers become this in the advertising and net movies, to the point where it's downright weird to see them trying to kill people in the actual film.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Rock Great Leader ends up destroying every member of Shocker that the heroes hadn't already killed.
- One-Winged Angel: The Great Leader transforms into the Rock Great Leader after OOO defeats his normal form.
- Plot Hole: A lot of plot elements are either pulled out of or disappear into nowhere, to the point where thinking about them too hard will probably make your head throb.
- The Slow Path: one of the two Tagalong Kids gets left behind in the past. He would grow up to become the Shocker scientist who removed the Double Riders' brainwashing, and, shockingly, his best friend's father.
- Temporal Paradox: Naoki and Mitsuru are best friends in the contemporary era, but when Naoki gets left behind in 1971, he grows up to become Mitsuru's father, which wouldn't have been possible if they weren't friends in the first place.
- A Twinkle in the Sky: OOO does this to the Great Leader.
- The Worf Effect: The Shocker Greed is shown to be powerful enough to defeat the Double Riders.
- Gets on the receiving end later when they have their rematch.
- You Are Not Alone: All of the previous Kamen Riders arrive to assist their brethren in their hour of need. And it is glorious.
