    Episode 4: Get Out, Oni! I Am Serious 
  • Momotaros has teamed up with a dude stealing from a criminal organization - partly for the chance to fight, partly to pay back Ryotaro for the threads he'd bought while possessing him - and when Ryotaro wakes up, he is having none of it. He forces Momotaros back to the DenLiner, and tells him not to come back unless summoned. Then the Chameleon Imagin shows up, and Ryotaro in Plat Form gets his ass kicked, naturally. Despite this, he keeps getting back to his feet and trying, despite his poor reflexes and sloppy form. Momotaros starts yelling at Ryotaro to let him in and become Sword Form, or else Ryotaro's going to get killed. He doesn't care, because he refuses to work with a thief, and gets Momotaros to not only incorporate some standards, but also to apologize. And then, the two work together to Curb Stomp the Chameleon Imagin.

    Episode 14: Dance With Dragon 
  • Den-O Gun Form fighting two Gigandeaths by summoning Ikazuchi and then combining all of the DenLiner cars for battle for the very first time. Even better, Den-O pilots the whole thing from the outside, riding on Ikazuchi's head!
    Episode 18: A Clockwork Fiance 
  • The Wolf Imagin has been rampaging for the last episode and a bit aimlessly, while Ryotaro and the others sort out problems and such. Ryotaro fought it in Plat Form which, as per standard, was a Curb-Stomp Battle against him, the Imagin managed to dodge Ryuutaros's finisher... then, once problems are resolved for all but Momotaros, who's a little pissed off that he was worried for no real reason, they fight the Wolf Imagin. Rod and Ax Form both fight the monster, and trade blows, although they do pretty well, and Kintaros was going to finish it, Ryotaro has them switch to Sword form to give Momotaros a turn. After being knocked around because Momotaros isn't even pretending to fight, Momotaros resolves his problems with Ryotaro... and then proceeds to Curb-Stomp Battle the Wolf Imagin right back, just striking him over and over with sword slashes, not getting hit once, then ending it with a new finisher which segueways into a Funny Momoment.
    Episode 25: Climax Double Jump - Episode 26: The Ticket To God's Line 
  • This series does this logistically, by having Yuto/Kamen Rider Zeronos kidnap Ryotaro/Kamen Rider Den-O three times in the fortnight, and take them all back in time to the Edo period to fight Kamen Rider Gaoh, all without Ryotaro having any memory of the event. But Kamen Rider Gaoh doesn't actually start his evil plan until #27, which leads right into The Movie, which ends with Ryotaro almost beaten by Gaoh, until Zeronos shows up at the end with the three past versions of Ryotaro, allowing him/them to activate all four of his armor forms at once. In short, they used time travel to stop the evil plan and did so before it happened. One of the best uses of time travel in any series, ever.
    Episode 36: No Possession, No Secession, Train Slash! 
  • Liner Form's debut. Ryotaro himself takes out two Imagin who formed a drill-like twister with a Den-Liner shaped attack.
    Episode 46: Now To Reveal Love & Truth

    Episode 48: Opposite Goodbyes... 
  • Urataros pulling The Mole towards the literal New Mole Imagins, right before his apparent final battle as the others go ahead of him.

Movies

    Kamen Rider Den-O: I'm Born 
    Saraba Kamen Rider Den-O: Final Countdown 
  • When the DenLiner is left stranded in the middle of the sands of time, the Owner's response is to grab a normal old bicycle, put on a pair of jogging shorts, and power the train with his own two feet. And it works. Not to mention that he's even been shown jogging alongside the DenLiner, and keeping up! It's a greenscreen effect of course, but at one point he does that trick where you hold a cane in both hands and jump over it without letting go of the cane. It's not that easy.
    • Worth pointing out, the Owner's actor Kenjiro Ishimaru is a regular competitor on Ninja Warrior and does well despite being in his 50s, adding an awesome subtext onto the character.
  • All of Den-O's forms used is repeated again, where they do it a second time with even more forms at once.
  • Kotaro/New Den-O and Teddy's arrival by destroying an Imagin in 8 seconds, and they made sure to count it themselves.

  • Many people talk about the running gag that female riders tend to die as quickly as they appear with very few exceptions, though no one talks about how every movie rider has a tendency to die. Granted, most of them filled the role of villain, but even the heroic or anti-heroic riders get killed off too (with the possible exception of the Oni in Hibiki... provided you discount "dying of old age" as the cause of death). Enter New Den-O, who ends up surviving the events of his movie and many more movies to follow, marking him as one of the first. That's pretty awesome.
  • After hitting stardom thanks to Kamen Rider Den-O thus becoming too expensive and busy for Toei to hire, being replaced by Takuya Mizoguchi in Kamen Rider Decade and the Cho Den-O Trilogy, the character Ryotaro not appearing at all after those movies and being replaced by the Taros. Takeru Satoh finally returns as the original Kamen Rider Den-O in Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER and no not voice acting his role, but in person. Den-O... sanjou! (It had to be done.)
