* MultiformBalance: We won't get full suit changes 'til ''Black Rx,'' but this is the first series to give the hero different modes. The Five Hands system allows his ''gloves'' to take different forms allowing for different powers:
** Super Hands are his silver default, allowing for SuperStrength as he uses his martial arts might.
** Elek Hands shoot beams of lightning.
** Power Hands grant him SuperStrength, allowing him to lift over fifty tons.
** Thermal Hands give him a freezing spray from his left and a flame blast from his right.
** Radar Hands let him send a device into the air that lets him scan for miles. It's not much good in combat but it's one of his best tools.

Added DiffLines:

* MindControlEyes: In a way; mind control is represented by dark eyeshadow.


* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: In the second half of the show, pretty much all Jin Dogma's plans boil down to "take over the world with evil and/or mind-controlling objects," including soap, roller skates, cameras, spray cans, sunglasses, umbrellas...

* CursedWithAwesome: Notably subverted: unlike every other Showa Era Rider, who were either subjected to UnwillingRobotization, underwent an EmergencyTransformation to save their lives, or had some other major drawback, Kazuya's transformation into Super-1 was completely willing, voluntary, and for completely benevolent purposes (namely space travel). He only starts using it to fight evil when the bad guys attack him and his friends first.

* ShootingSuperman: Akuma Teitoku's final plan to kill Super-1? He locks him in a sealed room and sucks out all the air, therefore suffocating him to death. This lasts for all of 3 minutes, since ''Super-1 was originally built to do stuff in the vacuum of space'', ya dope!

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceDoorSlam: When General Megaal's fiancee finds him, it really looks like he's going to turn good. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, Terror Macrow then takes control of him, turning him into a mindless berserker who kills said fiancee, forcing Super-1 to destroy him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MechaMooks: Dogma Fighters, spandex robots that sound a lot like R2-D2. Unusually for the trope, they aren't ''all'' mooks; some are scientists.

* CoolBike: Super-1 actually has two bikes -- a Suzuki and a Harley Davidson, the "Blue Version" and the "V-Machine" respectively. The Blue Version is better at rough roads and general agility, while the V-Machine is better at flat-out speed and can transform into the even faster "V-Jet".

* {{Badass}}: Kazuya Oki/Kamen Super-1, obviously. He learned how to transform by beating one hundred martial artist and proceed to kick ass throughout the entire series.


''Kamen Rider Super-1'' is the seventh ''Franchise/KamenRider'' series lasting from 1980-1981. The title Rider is Kazuya Oki, an astronaut who is rebuilt by NASA into "Super-1", as a space exploration and development cyborg without the need for bulky external gear. But the Dogma terrorist group attacks just as NASA is putting Super-1 through tests; everyone except Kazuya are killed. Unable to transform of his own volition, Kazuya escapes to Japan, where he trains in martial arts, eventually using it to replace the external henshin command -- and getting some fighting skill in the process.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Gold Hand. It serves as a radar, which won't be useful in fights. Subverted that the only thing to make it useful is combat is to use it as a rocket launcher.

**It's basically what ''Fourze's'' Radar Switch is based on. Most notably, he can send up a small camera-like "radar" device that shows him what's going on for ''miles.'' It may not be a weapon but it's one of his most useful tools.
