*** Near the end of the series, the Rabbit and Dragon Bottles change colors (gold and silver, respectively) due to their main users reaching Hazard Level 7. In ''Be the One'', Sento combines them into a Sparkling-style soda can that activates Cross-Z Build Form.



** There's a fourth group of man-made Bottles besides those of the three regions, called Lost Bottles. These include Bat, Cobra, Castle, Kuwagata (Stag Beetle), Fukurou (Owl), Shimauma (Zebra), Hasami (Scissors), Hammer, Spanner, and one unidentified. They were originally purple and silver, but late in the series turn black and gold. They're used by Faust agents in various ways across the show:

Added DiffLines:

* CerebusRetcon: Many of Buildís bizarre choices for Best Matches are simply accepted by the protagonists, with things from turtles and watches to pirates and trains, [[spoiler: are revealed to be the result of Soichi telling Evolt 30 things his daughter loved, and then Evolt wanting 30 things that could destroy them. The nonsensical choices were out of Soichiís desire to protect what Misora loved, and thus resulted in the Best Matches.]]

* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Averted repeatedly.
** After Banjou figures out that the Dragon Fullbottle an enhance his punches, he pauses to admire it and claim that the fight will be easy...only to find that the Guardians have surrounded him while he was distracted.
** During the representative battle between Build and Rogue, they get into debate about the purpose of the Rider System [[spoiler: and whether Sento is still the Devil's Scientist]]. Rogue takes advantage of the lull in the fight to ready a Funky Shot from the Nebula Steam Rifle.
** [[spoiler: Mad Rogue]] copies the above trick by charging up the [=KaizokuHassyar=] in the middle of a HannibalLecture.
** [[spoiler: After Evol finds himself overpowered by Build's Genius form, he decides to stop playing around and use Black Hole form only for Build to grab the Evol Trigger and finish him off before he gets the chance to transform. Tellingly, Evol shows up to their next encounter already in Black Hole form.]]


-> ''"Ten years have passed since Pandora Box was discovered on Mars and caused the infamous Skywall Incident. Our country was divided into three districts known as Touto, Seito, and Hokuto, resulting in utter chaos."''[[note]]From episode 29 to 35, the narration changed to "In order to open Pandora Box and release its massive amount of energy capable of destroying the world, a new battle has begun!".

* RevisitingTheRoots: According to WordOfGod, the series is intended to do this. The most obvious case is the return of some Showa Era conventions like the monsters being created through experimentation by an evil organization, but other older Rider formulas can be seen, such as the parallels to ''[[Series/KamenRiderW W]]'', and there being only one Rider until later when a single secondary Rider appears with only one base form and no gimmicks.

** Something that's not noticeable at first is the return of the Rider Kick as the primary finisher when past Heisei Kamen Riders rarely uses it.

Added DiffLines:

* NotHimself: The energy released when Pandora's Box was opened in 2007 distorted the personalities of everyone present, making them aggressive and warlike, which is a major reason why the three nations haven't tried to reunite in the intervening decade. Touto's Prime Minister Himuro was unable to attend the ceremony, which is why he remains a ReasonableAuthorityFigure. [[spoiler:When those affected are returned to normal, they tend to suffer MyGodWhatHaveIDone moments because they remember everything they did while under the Box's influence.]]


*** For upgrades, the first is [=RabbitTank=] Sparkling; where the others are water bottles, this one's a soda can with a "carbonated" version of the form. He can also use an add-on called the Hazard Trigger to upgrade any Best Match[[note]]usually but not always [=RabbitTank=][[/note]] into a "Super Best Match", activating a "Hazard" version. Later on, Build can use the Full Full [=RabbitTank=] Bottle in conjunction with the Hazard Trigger to access [=RabbitRabbit=] Form or [=TankTank=] Form. [[spoiler:For his SuperMode, he creates the Genius Bottle that unites all 60 normal Bottles.]]
