Added DiffLines:

* IncestYayShipping: The overhelming majority of fics centered around Emu and Parado at very least mention them being in a romantic/sexual relationship despite the fact they are basically mentally conjoined twins.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: From ''True Ending'', Kagenari Nagumo. He joins Machina Vision and becomes Kamen Rider Fuma so he can carry out Johnny Maxima's plan while using it to put everyone in an "eternal heaven" virtual reality where they are all happy, specifically wanting his daughter to experience the life that her chronic illness prevented her from enjoying. Kagenari is supposed to come off as an AntiVillain and WellIntentionedExtremist like Ren Aoi before him, except there are a few problems with that. Namely, there is never any explanation provided as to ''why'' he was absent in his daughter's life for so long, which can make his desire to help her with her illness a little hard to swallow if he couldn't even be there for her when she was going through it. Additionally, he antagonizes the main characters who are actually trying to treat her illness [[spoiler:and succeed]]. Also, while his words to Emu claim he has concern for her wellbeing, his plan to save her involves meeting her for the first time in her life just so he can get her '''[[FromBadToWorse even more sick]]''' with game disease, seemingly without allowing anyone in the real world to continue aiding her ill body since they're all stuck with her in the VR. This is somewhat mitigated by the end of the movie, when he [[spoiler:leaves Machina Vision and heeds Emu's words about being there to support his daughter in her recovery]], which does help, but up until then he comes off as a deadbeat dad making excuses for [[ParentalAbandonment abandoning]] his family for seemingly no reason.

** In episode 25, thereís a scene where [[spoiler: Parado permanently kills off 5 Ride-Players.]] This scene is meant to be horrifying and showing off how serious [[spoiler: Parado]] is as the new BigBad, and indeed it is. However, [[spoiler: the 5 victims were shown beforehand to be {{Jerkass}} to the Doctor Riders as a whole and Emu in particular, and even forcefully took away Emuís Driver and Gashat.]] Therefore, it becomes a bit harder to sympathize with them.

Added DiffLines:

** In the Japanese fandom, Emu/Kiriya is the most popular couple. There are hundreds of doujinshi for it, and the fan-artists didn't seem to be put off by [[spoiler: Kiriya's death]]. [[spoiler: Kiriya's resurrection and the fact that he only fakes his FaceHeelTurn and has been on Emu's side all along]] makes this pairing even stronger on the Japanese side.

Added DiffLines:

*** Unfortunately it got worse again with Shouma Kai (Parado) having tested positive in November.

Added DiffLines:

*** Becomes less so when, as of August 18th, he has recovered completely. The gamer doctor has done it again!


** "Ex-Aid has no OP", and variations thereof, based on the fact that the series has moved towards a ColdOpen and is instead playing its theme song "EXCITE" as an ending theme instead of as an opening.

* IAmNotShazam: The riders are easily labeled, but the forms are often mislabeled by fans as either the Gashat names or just the Rider names for Level 2. Form names tend to have a word taken from the base Gashat the rider uses to transform (''Action'' for Ex-Aid and Genm, ''Quest'' for Brave, ''Shooting'' for Snipe, and ''Bike'' for Kiriya) with the word "Gamer", followed by the level of said form. If a supplemental Gashat is added, a word from said Gashat's name is prefixed. For example, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid is the rider himself. His "chibi" form is called Action Gamer Level 1. His "regular" form is called Action Gamer Level 2. When he uses Gekitotsu Robots, he is called Robot Action Gamer Level 3. When he uses Shakariki Sports, he is called Sports Action Gamer Level 3. When he uses Ju Ju Burger, he is called Burger Action Gamer Level 4. When he uses Dragon Knight Hunter Z, he is called Hunter Action Gamer Level 5. When he uses Mighty Bros. XX, the chibi form is called Double Action Gamer X and the split regular forms are called Double Action Gamer XX-L and XX-R. Maximum Gamer Level 99 and Muteki Gamer avoid this naming convention.

It's about as complicated for ''everyone'' who gets several forms, and it's not hard to understand why the vast majority of the fandom just uses the Gashat's name instead.


*** Turns out it's M,[[spoiler: or more specifically, Parado.]]
** Considering Kiriya's habit of lying, one has to wonder if him acting goofy and casual with everything he does is an act to mask how he feels about [[spoiler: causing his friend's death.]] At times it almost feels forced when he laughs at other people. And when [[spoiler:he comes back from death and reveals that he's working with Masamune completely out of free will, has he turned a new leaf and chosen to truly become evil? Or has he gone under despair of seeing Emu not having stopped the Bugster Virus and decided Masamune was the only hope of possibly stopping it? Is he a double agent that's working with Masamune to benefit the heroes? Was he truly reprogrammed by Masamune and restored by Emu and is just putting up a front with Emu for something else?

** Fan reaction to the writers [[spoiler: killing off Kiriya]] is divisive at best. Some fans supported their decision, as his character arc has already finished, while some other fans thought they did it too early. A third camp felt that they [[spoiler: killed off]] the wrong character. There's yet another camp, mainly of Japanese parents, who felt that [[spoiler: his death]] was at a very poorly timed episode since was aired on Christmas.
** Much like in ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]],'' the resurrection of [[spoiler: Poppy and Parado]] in the show's final episode has been met with mixed results by fans. Some say that bringing them back undermines the show's messages about mortality, while others don't have an issue with it due to them inevitably having to be brought back due to them showing up in ''[[TheMovie True Ending]]'', which takes place after the series finale. To be fair, they're video game characters...

* DracoInLeatherPants: Parado. He admits that his motive is revenge, wants to punish and commit genocide on humanity in a Creator/TaroYoko styled spectacle fighter with humans as the ''mooks'' with Kamen Rider Chronicle, and if a Bugster doesn't agree with his revenge, he will strangle and threaten them. But people treat him as a misunderstood AntiVillain who just wants to play with Emu and is justify his crimes which equal Dan's in scale. [[spoiler: While he does get redemption and join the heroes, it's less about him being misunderstood and more so out of Emu having to teach him that what he's doing is horrible and that he can't play with and murder humans who only have one life.]]
