* While people that die due to a monster attack (i.e Worms from ''Series/KamenRiderKabuto'' spraying white liquid, and ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'''s Orphenochs destroying a person's heart), ''Wizard'' no doubtly has the worst case of killing someone by DespairEventHorizon, the purple glow on a person's skin seems to stress this further.

* There is almost no humor in episode 9, which makes sense since Haruto must find a way to defeat Phoenix before it's too late. The Wizardriver even sounds quite sinister and intimidating when the Flame Dragon ring is used to transform into Flame Dragon.
** Haruto's nightmare where Phoenix infiltrates the hospital, murders Hiroki's parents while he watches, and Hiroki is swiftly enveloped in violet light as he turns into a Phantom.
** Dragon himself is creepy. We meet him in Haruto's underworld, looking exactly like our hero except with [[RedEyesTakeWarning ominously glowing red eyes]] and [[EvilSoundsDeep a deep voice]], gloating over the scene of Haruto's dead parents. He then proceeds to do the standard 'Phantom reveal' before circling around Haruto and taunting him about the cost of the new ring's power.

** In the same episode, we finally get to see how a Gate turns into a Phantom in full. The entire idea and implications is already scary enough, but now to see exactly just how utterly painful and horrifying the whole process is nothing short of disturbing. Not at all helped by how completely powerless the hero is the whole time.
* The mere fact the Legion Phantom is the ''only'' Phantom that Wiseman considered so dangerous, so AxCrazy, that he [[SealedEvilInACan imprisoned him!]] Keep in mind that psychos like Phoenix and Lizardman were allowed to run free...

* #41: According to the White Wizard, [[spoiler:if you fall into despair but hang onto hope, [[ButThouMust you]] '''''[[ButThouMust HAVE]]''''' [[ButThouMust to become a Wizard Rider]]. So here's the concept: if you get targeted by a Phantom and you fall into despair, with no Wizard Rider to use their Engage Ring, you either become a Phantom or a Rider.
