!!''Kamen Rider Den-O'' provides examples of the following tropes:

%%* AnimeThemeSong
* ArcWords:
** "The past should give us hope."
** "Climax Scene" for the episodes leading into the first movie, [[spoiler:which, in the "aftermath episode", also brings us the '''Climax''' Form.]]
* AnimeHair: Any time an Imagin possesses a human, their hair will be restyled and gain at least a shock of a new color; rarely, an accessory may be included, such as Sieg's feathered boa or Urataros' glasses. The style, color and accessories are consistent across hosts, but oddly never appear on the Imagin themselves.
* BadassFamily: The Nogami family, giving us two Den-[=Os=] (Ryotaro and Kotaro), [[spoiler:Zeronos/Yuto, and BadassNormal Hana]]. Airi, not so much, but hey.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: A regular occurence with evil Imagin. They'll take their victim's wish and take heavy liberties with it, usually taking the interpretation that causes the most destruction.
* BigBudgetBeefUp: The last few eps.
* BiggerIsBetter: The Onigashima Battleship is '''huge'''. Comparing it to the [=DenLiner=] is like comparing [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Daijinryu]] to a normal Zord. [[SubvertedTrope However]], the [=DenLiner's=] size and speed proves to be a major asset, allowing it to evade most of the shots fired at it and enter the battleship.
* {{Blipvert}}: [[spoiler:Kai]] can dig into people for their memories, which turn out looking like this.

!!Recurring ''Kamen Rider'' tropes include:



* TheMovie: ''Den-O'' has '''eight''' feature length films (three of which premiered as an anthology), with the most recently-announced as a MilestoneCelebration for 40 years of ''Franchise/KamenRider''.
* MultiformBalance:
** Den-O's forms are tied to which allied Imagin is [[DemonicPossession possessing him]] at the moment:
*** '''Plat Form''' ([[JustForPun geddit?]]): The base form of the Aura Armor, used when Ryotaro is acting on his own without any Imagin. Almost useless in a fight ([[JokeCharacter but it doesn't stop Ryotaro from trying and get his ass kicked though]]).
*** '''Sword''': Possessed by Momotaros. This is the [[JackOfAllStats balanced form]].
*** '''Rod''': Possessed by Urataros. Has [[StoneWall high defense but low offense]]. This form is [[OlympicSwimmer good for aquatic combat]], and the [=DenGasher=] rod mode has [[YouWillNotEvadeMe the power of capturing an escaping enemy]].
*** '''Ax''': Possessed by Kintaros. [[MightyGlacier Slow but strong]], and has [[SuperToughness the best defense]].
*** '''Gun''': Possessed by Ryutaros. [[LightningBruiser Faster than Sword Form and armed with a powerful DenGahser gun mode]]. Ryutaros also incorporates break dancing into his fighting style, making it [[ConfusionFu hard to predict]]. However, Ryutaros's trigger-happy carelessness tends to cause serious collateral damage.
*** '''Wing''': Possessed by Sieg. [[LightningBruiser Even faster than Gun Form]] and armed with [[DualWielding a combination of a boomerang and a handaxe]]. But Sieg is the SixthRanger of the group, often not available, and [[TheFriendNobodyLikes the team loathe him]]. His arrogant attitude also makes him prone to making mistakes in battle. Generally exclusive to movie appearances, though it made a couple teaser appearances in the series beforehand.
*** '''Climax''': [[AllYourPowersCombined Combines powers of the four Taros into one form]]. This form requires a [[TransformationTrinket Climax Cellphone K-Taros]], and all four Taros need to work together controlling a single body.
*** '''Super Climax''': [[UpToEleven Even more powerful than Climax Form]], at the cost of fusing with [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Sieg]]. This one only appears in spinoff movies.
*** '''Liner''': After some CharacterDevelopment, Ryotaro can use the [[CoolSword DenKamen Sword]] to transform into this form without being possessed by Imagin. It's the fastest form and relatively stronger than most, except Climax Form. The downside is Ryotaro's low combat skill, which is remedied to a degree as he can select one of the Taros to advice him through the [=DenKamen Sword=], allowing him to [[DittoFighter utilize their fighting style depend of the situation]].
** [[TheLancer Zeronos]]:
*** '''Altair''': His default [[JackOfAllStats balance form]]. Also, Deneb is independent from Zeronos in this form and can assist him otherwise.
*** '''Vega''': Fused with Deneb. Becomes [[MightyGlacier slower but stronger]] as well as gaining [[SuperToughness improved defense]] and being equipped with a powerful set of {{Shoulder Cannon}}s.
*** '''Zero''': Transformed by using the Red Zeronos card. [[LightningBruiser Marginally weaker than Vega Form but much faster than Altair Form]] and equipped with a powerful Denebick Buster gun (which can qualify as both {{BFG}} and GatlingGood).
* VictimOfTheWeek: Common for Franchise/KamenRider, to the extent that future series like ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]]'' and ''[[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]'' have adopted it. Even the multitude of Den-O movies uphold this tradition, so much that some unexpected examples turn up ([[spoiler:young Ryotaro in ''Ore Tanjou'', young Yuuto in ''Onigashima Battleship'', and even ''G Den-O'' in ''Chou Den-O Episode Yellow''.]])

Later in the two-parter, Ura insults Momotaros with a fishing rod metaphor that sounds suspiciously like a ''different'' [[TeenyWeenie rod metaphor]].

* ''Kamen Rider Den-O: Pretty Den-O is Here!'': The first new project in since ''Let’s Go'' starring the Den-O cast (or at least the Taros Brothers) as the Den-Liner visits the year 1989, picking up a runaway little girl when Shocker attacks and hijacks Den-Liner!

* ''Kamen Rider Den-O: Pretty Den-O is Here!'': The first new project in since ''Let’s Go'' starring the Den-O cast (or at least the Taros Brothers) as the Den-Liner visits the year 1989, picking up a runaway little girl when Shocker attacks and hijacks Den-Liner!Den-Liner!. The main character of ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' makes his cameo appearance.

Added DiffLines:

* UniquenessDecay: ''I'm Born!!'' treated the battle with all four Den-Os as a unique and special event, only possible because Yuto "borrowed" Ryotaro from three other points in the timeline. After the final story arc, where [[spoiler:the Taros "complete" their contracts with Ryotaro and thus gain physical form]], the Taros gain the ability to transform into Den-O on their own (as well as spontaneously possessing their own copies of the belt and Rider Pass). As a result, just about every post-series appearance from ''Final Countdown'' onwards features all the Den-Os fighting as a team, making ''I'm Born!!'' a lot less "unique and special" than it originally was.

Added DiffLines:

*** Sieg uses “watashi”. “Watashi” is a gender-neutral pronoun, but more commonly used by women, which fits his {{Camp}} mannerisms. However, it also has a superior air to it, and in anime, is sometimes used by people who are royalty or have a god-like complex. Which, considering Sieg’s haughty and royalty-like attitude, is rather fitting.

Added DiffLines:

* ExpositoryPronoun:
** The two main Riders: Ryoutarou uses [[UsefulNotes/JapanesePronouns “boku”]] and Yuuto uses “ore”. Ryoutarou is mild-mannered, even-tempered, usually non-confrontational, and generally more polite. In contrast, Yuuto is hot-headed, rougher, and more willing to pick a fight. This choice of pronouns also suit their SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan dynamic.
** The main Imagins:
*** Momotaros, Kintaros, and Deneb use “ore”. Momotaros is without a doubt the most HotBlooded and least bothered with manners of the cast. Kintaros has the personality of a manly samurai and is the physically strongest of Ryoutarou’s Imagins. Oddly averted for Deneb, though, as he is one of the nicest members of the cast despite using “ore”.
*** Urataros and Ryuutaros use “boku”. Urataros is smooth, well-spoken, and a charismatic speaker, and his choice of “boku” immediately contrasts Momotaros’s “ore”. Meanwhile, Ryuutaros is the most childish of the cast, so him using “boku” emphasizes his child-like personality.

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: ''Episode Yellow''; not only do the previous two movies focus on a Rider from ''Den-O'', but they also involve an Imagin (outside of the Taros) as an important part of the plot. Instead, ''Yellow'' not only focuses on a Rider [[Series/KamenRiderDecade outside the series]], but there was barely any Imagin involvement at all.[[note]]There ''is'' one, but it's only to kickstart the plot.[[/note]] Not unless you would count [[AIIsACrapshoot Eve]]...

* EarlyBirdCameo: Unlike the previous 6 series, ''Den-O'' averts the trend of having the hero's final form debut in the summer movie. Likely due to a combination of taking place earlier than most of the movies (which either were an alternate ending/continuity or took place around the point where the final form debuts in-series), as well as the fact that, since ''Ore Tanjou'' is completely canon to ''Den-O'', circumstances prevent the form from being used[[labelnote:explanation]]Climax Form, which debuted right after the movie, required all 4 of the Taros to possess Ryotaro at the same time; however, the movie has all 4 of them possess Ryotaro from different points in time, to work together - this causes problems for Ryotaro's memories, which ends up leading to the form's creation[[/labelnote]].

** Although a lot of plot points are made of Den-O and rampaging Imagins making changes to the timeline for better or worse, a big point is also made of how it's fairly difficult to change the flow of time because it's based on people's memories (so the past will mostly only change for those who are there to witness and remember it changing,) and because sometimes that's how life goes. One example being a contract holder who regretted missing his audition and failing to make it big--Den-O helps him get to the audition but he failed, ending up in the same place he was at the start of the two-parter.

** The similarities between Sieg and [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Kamen Rider Odin]] are more than subtle. However, given his swan motif, as well as his utter CurbstompBattle against the Cobra Imagin, it's more likely that Femme from the same series was the one who inspired Sieg's design.



** As pointed out in the design book ''Imagin: Say Your Wish...'', the first few enemy Imagin correspond to Riders from ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'': Bat to Knight, Chameleon to Verde, Crust to Scissors, Crow to Odin, Rhino to Gai. Additionally, as mentioned under ActorAllusion, the Cobra Imagin is designed to resemble Ohja, and is also voiced by the same actor.
*** The Spider Imagin is a double subversion of this - while there was no spider-themed rider in ''Ryuki''[[note]]the only insect-themed rider the show had was the stageshow-exclusive Kamen Rider Papillion, who was butterfly themed[[/note]], it is a reference to the traditional spider-themed kaijin that are present in most series (and was the theme for one of the first monsters fought in the original ''Series/KamenRider'').
** According to ''Re:Imagine - Detail of Heroes 03'', the villains from ''Onigashima Battleship'' are modeled [[Series/KamenRider Riders 1 and 2]] (Goludora) and [[Series/KamenRiderV3 V3]] (Shilubara). They also not only draw upon the gold and silver-themed heroes of ''Series/{{Garo}}'', but transform the same way.
