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.
  • Complete Monster: Anguis Femineus, the Gorgon Lord. She actually takes sadistic pleasure in her murders, laughing sinisterly as she stalks her victims. She even murders Sakiko Mikumo, a normal human, out of spite, causing the Overlord to force her to kill herself as punishment.
    • A number of the Lords - despite supposedly being Angels and even making hand-signs for permission to sin - actually display sadistic pleasure in killing their victims. E.g. Corvus Croccio, Apis Mellitus, and the aforementioned Anguis Femineus.
  • 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.
  • Game Breaker: Shining Form
  • 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.
  • Too Cool to Live: Another Agito
  • Trope Maker/Trope Codifier: Quite a lot for Heisei Kamen Riders. This series was very experimental by introducing four TV Show Riders and three who are the main characters. The Rider who acts as a rival was not fully formed yet but it has its roots in this series as a recurring element. A lot of Heisei era tropes came from this show and many of them were expanded upon in later series. Here's a list:
    • Multiple Riders.
    • Movie Riders (Kamen Rider G4 was the first one).
    • Rivalries between Riders (this series was more subtle about it).
    • Poor Communication Kills: This series was written by Toshiki Inoue, who later became infamous for writing these sorts of situations. Thankfully it's not as bad here.
    • Evil Riders (Another Agito and G4, though the former turned good).
