  • Taking You with Me: In the anime, he gets up after getting he head and arm blown off to strangle the life out of Gill before fully malfunctioning.
  • Upgrade vs. Prototype Fight: Hakaider is the Upgrade to Kikaider. Kikaider was released early before Dr. Komiyoji could finish Jiro or his Gemini circuit. Hakaider on the other hand was made and completed by Dark using Komiyoji whose design was based on Kikaider. However Hakaider was also made specifically for combat and so has more armaments than Kikaider along with a stronger body with combat programming. Making Hakaider even more deadly is the fact that he is single minded in his pursuit of Jiro and absolutely focused on beating Kikaider whereas Jiro is often plagued with doubt and indecision due to his conscience circuit.
  • Villain Song: Ore no na waa, ore no nawaa, Hakaidaaa...
