Added DiffLines:

* VindicatedByHistory: In more recent years, ''Ghost'' has received some fair redemption. As mentioned above, the Rider designs are generally well-liked. Of all the characters, Alain is praised for his character arc (not unlike Mack's in ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive''). The soundtrack (and ''especially'' the opening) are very well received. And like [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Tsukasa]] before him, Takeru's [[Film/KamenRiderGenerationsDrPacmanVsExAidAndGhostWithLegendaryRiders appearances]] [[Film/KamenRiderHeiseiGenerationsFinalBuildAndExAidWithLegendRiders post]]-[[Series/KamenRiderZiO series]] are warmly received.

Added DiffLines:

** Yurusen. A floating little cyclops-like ghost with little stubs for arms. It helps that Creator/AoiYuuki voices her.


* Makoto’s IncestIsRelative dream from episode 34 has become this in light of Mio Kudo’s [[Series/MashinSentaiKiramager later Tokusatsu role]], with comments and jokes being made in corners of the internet.
* {{Moe}}: Takeru is a very good live-action example: cute looks, kind and gentle, devoted to his friends no matter what, and a plucky spirit no matter the odds.

** The little coat ghosts that appear when the riders transform. Especially since they do a funny little dance around the Rider.


Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot: ''Ghost'' is the go-to punching bag for Kamen Rider. While it's praised for it's Rider designs and overall aesthetic, everything else is heavily criticized. The main issue being the lack of development for some of the main characters as well as side characters being underutilized.

* ToughActToFollow: Just as ''Drive'' was negatively compared to ''Gaim'', ''Ghost's'' initial reception from English-speaking viewers skews towards negative coming off the heels of ''Drive's'' massive GrowingTheBeard. Whether it grew its own beard or shaved it off with ArcFatigue is [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment best left to one's judgement]]

* MostAnnoyingSound: Like the Wizardriver, here we have another TransformationTrinket that won't shut up. (Of course, technically Krim was a lot more talkative, but Krim's actual dialogue is different from driver chatter.) Wizard was bad, but this one is ''literally'' yelling "look at me" to be paid attention to over the characters and story. As always, it sucks the drama right out of the more serious battles and turns fights involving multiple Riders into a cacophony of overlapping phrases. We've come a long way in the ''wrong'' direction since it all started with [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki a simple "[Attack name here] Vent]]."
** The Eyecon Driver G takes this UpToEleven, listing off all the Heroes and their occupations either during transformation or [[FinishingMove Omega Drive]]. Makes fans pine for the less noisy Infinity Form of Wizard.
** SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: As usual, it can be this as well.


** EndingFatigue: Many fans feel like the show's final arc feels stretched, again with what seems to be four episodes or so worth of plot being spread over ten episodes.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped:
** Pursuing a seemingly selfless and heroic goal for someone else you love can ultimately become selfish and horrible if you ignore and disregard the beliefs and desires of that person. It's just dropped even harder when Kanon is not revived through Makoto's violent tendencies, but Takeru's willing sacrifice and caring for his friend.
** Even if you don't agree with people who believe in things that you can never mix with the things you believe in, nothing is necessarily stopping you from respecting each other.

* TheScrappy: Kanon has landed herself into DamselScrappy status for many fans, for her frequent need to be rescued and not having much of a personality or motivation besides "helps the heroes". It doesn't help that she's the very reason the show went as long as it did, since Takeru spent his wish on Kanon, thus prolonging his quest to be revived.
