YMMV / Kamen Rider Agito

  • Anti-Climax Boss: The Overlord of Darkness goes down from a single Rider Kick after Shouichi, Ryo, and Hikawa kill the Els of Wind and Earth. Though to be fair, he was in a position were he was vulnerable and couldn't really use most of his powers at the time. And it didn't kill him. He just decides to give up his little conquest against the humans and that's it.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: One that was thankfully caught and scaled back. Originally intended to be a direct sequel to Kuuga, someone working on the show raised the point that if another show was made about a new group of Grongi springing up then all of Kuuga's hard work would've been for nothing, which could've turned off returning viewers. Thus the monsters were turned into something completely unrelated, and the only real link is the police having created a power suit originally meant to fight Grongi.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: DEEP BREATH, We need it, just focus!
    • Years after Agito aired, Believe Yourself still might just be the best song whenever a Kamen Rider finishes his foe.
    • Agito's Cool Bike Machine Tornador has its own theme song.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Episode 34 sees Agito defeat one of the Unknown using one punch after transforming.
  • Narm: thanks to a variant of Special Effects Failure. After the black Overlord takes back the powers of Agito, Gills and Another Agito, Shoichi goes through a Heroic BSOD of sorts before literally fighting to reclaim them in episode 46. At the critical moment (see Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu? above), the black Overlord goes down and the powers he's taken emerge...from his groin.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The various methods the Unknown use to attack their victims.
    • Gills himself qualifies as well, especially when you see his helmet come alive.
    • Gills is an organic Rider, like Amazon. That's not a helmet.
    • The Unknowns themselves are very nightmare fuel. From their humanlike appearances to the fact that they're constantly hissing or growling (the only word they seem to say is "Agito"). The BGM that accompanies them onscreen does not help.
  • Older Than They Think: This is not the first time Kamen Rider rides a Honda.note 
  • The Scrappy: Everyone hates Houjou, both in the show and in the fanbase. He often comes up with excuses as to why G3 and later on G3-X can't fight the Unknowns, frequently antagonizes Ozawa, and, during the final episodes, convinces the higher-ups of the police force to not fight the Unknowns due to him thinking that them killing innocent people is justified.
  • Too Cool to Live: Another Agito
