* MemeticMutation: ''[[Series/KamenRiderKuuga "Mo' fear! Mo' pain! No henshin, Kamen Rider Kuuga!"]]''[[note]] A parody of the original Kuuga's EarWorm opening. Lots of people absolutely hate Yusuke Onodera for being a selfish {{Jerkass}} who only ever fought as Kuuga for his own sake or his sisters and for [[ReplacementScrappy not only not being Yusuke Godai but also being his exact opposite.]] Coupled with his transformations into Kuuga being far and few between and some fans wonder just ''what the hell he's doing in the cast.''[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/KamenRiderDecadeAllRidersVsDaiShocker'': [[TheChessmaster Nobuhiko Tsukikage]] is a slimy member of Dai-Shocker who, through treachery and manipulation, became their new Great Leader. Acting as the seemingly loyal butler of the Kadoya family, Tsukikage's real identity is that of [[Series/KamenRiderBlack Shadow Moon]] from another reality where [[AdaptationalVillainy he lacks all of his original counterpart's sympathetic qualities]]. Keeping a close eye on Sayo Kadoya for possessing the source of Dai-Shocker's power, the Stone of the Earth, Tsukikage manipulates Tsukasa with the belief that he could stop the destruction of worlds by defeating the previous Riders, helping him in setting up the battle royal tournament, which doubles as a ritual to raise the Dai-Shocker Castle. After Tsukasa briefly resumes his role as the Great Leader of Dai-Shocker, Tsukikage takes advantage of Sayo's hatred towards her brother to organize a coup, [[TheUsurper swiftly overthrowing him]] to assume the throne for himself. Under his leadership, Dai-Shocker launches an ultimatum on the multiverse, ordering thousands of their own soldiers to [[SuicideAttack perform kamikaze attacks]] and then releasing a legion of monsters to slaughter those who survived as part of their quest to assimilate all worlds into an interdimensional dictatorship.


** Tsukasa, for being a jerk who seems to solve everything and having his MagnificentBastard tendencies repeated over and over again in movies or taking the spotlight away from other Riders, gets this treatment. Though [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap he smartened up later]] during the events of ''[[Series/KamenRiderZiO Zi-O]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticLoser: Yusuke Onodera has often been the butt of all jokes for his uselessness since he doesn't transform that much and when he does, he doesn't make any difference in fight scenes. He has been the measuring stick for how useless a character can be in a Kamen Rider show.


* IntendedAudienceReaction: In the "World of Agito" Arc, instead of having separate alternate versions of the riders, all the riders are combined into one character (Shouichi Ashikawa - his first name comes from Agito's, '''Shouichi''' Tsugami, and his last name is a combination of the 2 secondary riders's last names, Gills/Ryo '''Ashi'''hara and G3/Makoto Hi'''kawa'''), who starts as G3, and then becomes Exceed Gills. Who expected him to become Another Agito after becoming Exceed Gills before becoming regular Agito?


** [[spoiler:Though, Natsumi prior to being Kivara was Den-o for one episode, and was killed off a couple of episodes later. She gets better.]]
* GameBreaker: Decade and Diend's Complete Forms.

better]].


* CharacterShilling: The novelization outright calls the original Kabuto (Souji Tendou) the strongest Kamen Rider ever, and he effortlessly beats down Decade and Diend at the same time. Also, Tsukasa doesn't earn Kabuto's power -- Tendou ''chooses'' to give it.



* OutOfCharacterMoment: In the novel, Kuuga is the original (Yusuke Godai), but he acts like a more airheaded version of Yusuke Onodera who can't even remember Decade's name (at one point he thinks it's [[Creator/CharlesDickens Dickens]]). In the Den-O world, Momotaros is polite and refers to the other Taros by their actual names rather than [[TheNicknamer his usual nicknames]]; Urataros is described as "the blue Ryutaros".



* SpecialEffectFailure[=/=]OffTheShelfFX: Kivaara initially made her first appearances as a CGI model. A few episodes later and she became a toy on a string.

* MemeticTroll: Daiki Kaito/Kamen Rider Diend, he will give out vague information about Tsukasa to him, will switch sides midway because hes bored, will steal something important and sometimes give it back at the last second, and can turn invisible and create duplicate illusions of himself. It helps that unlike Tsukasa and Yusuke, he was meant to be seen as annoying, making his ability to mess with them look even better.

** Due to VillainDecay and the fact that he always blames Decade for everything that goes wrong, even if hes responsible for it, Narutaki also gets this from the fandom.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Decade'' is well-seated with the fans initially but after subsequent crossover movies keep portraying the [[SuperDickery titular rider leading the villainous army to kill all Riders and/or destroying the world]] and yet he is always right anyway [[AssPull for the sake of plot twist]], the series plummeted to slightly above ''[[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]]'' in terms of popularity. [[TheScrappy And considering fans' reception about the latter show...]]

[[spoiler: Tsukasa's past and how he even lost his memories are barely even touched upon in the movie.]]
