Film / Kamen Rider Ryuki Episode Final

Go To

The summer movie of Kamen Rider Ryuki, shown alongside Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger Shushuuto The Movie.


The movie contains the following tropes:

  • Alternate Continuity: This movie is one of the three different continuities of Kamen Rider Ryuki, the others being the 13 Riders TV special and the TV series itself.
    • While certain elements in the movie would indicate that this is meant to be an alternate to the last 4 episodes (the presence of Survive Form and Raydragoonsnote ; Ryuki, Knight, Zolda, and Ouja being the only Kamen Riders presentnote ), as noted below, due to Toshiki Inoue writing the movie instead of Yasuko Kobayashi (who was the head writer of the series proper), there's a fair amount of snarls in the continuity.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: The movie ends with Yui dead and Knight and Ryuki as the last remaining Riders facing down an army of Hydragoon dragonflies intent on wiping out all of humanity. (As a footnote, the ending of the TV series proves that both the ending of the movie and the "13 Riders" special go on to be Reset Button Endings.)

    • As for the likely outcome, this ending is survivable, as mass-produced monsters tend to not be that tough, though this was the biggest crowd of them we'd seen. As for 13 Riders...all the Riders were setting up their "final vent" attacks, so even with Survive Mode, Shinji was pretty much screwed.
  • The Cameo: This movie features a cameo by several members of Kamen Rider Agito's cast, including three of the Riders.
  • Continuity Snarl: As par for the course regarding summer movies not written by the head writer, there's a few factors that prevent this from taking place in the main series continuity - although a fair amount of the differences between the film's ending and the ending of the TV series could be explained away by the film happening during one of Odin's Time Vents (as the ending to the TV series is explicitly stated to be the final one)note , the following prevent it from lining up with the series canon:
    • Shuichi Kitaoka/Zolda is allowed to retire from the Rider War, despite the fact that earlier in the series, Mitsuru Sano/Imperer was not allowed to do the same thing, despite his wish being granted (and he is still dead in the movie, implying that said rule is still in place). On top of that, Shuichi is shown to be in much better health at this point than he was during the series, where he died due to his poor health, and Goro had to take over as Zolda. Although the reason may be that Magnugiga, Zolda's Contract Monster, cannot move at all, preventing him to hunt and eat Shuichi after he retired.

    • Shinji and Yui never met prior to the events of the series, meaning that Ryuga cannot exist in the series proper; yet in this film, Shinji and Yui meeting as children is what caused Shinji's reflection to eventually rebel.
    • Survive mode is shown as a preview, yet in reality, had the form been available beforehand, Shinji and Ren would've used it much earlier (at the very least, Shinji would've used it in his fight against Ryuga). Admittedly, this problem isn't exclusive to this movie - Paradise Lost and Missing Ace (both also written by Inoue) both have a similar "preview mode" for the final forms of their main riders, but it's at least somewhat justified in those filmsnote . Here, Shinji is never shown obtaining the Survive card, meaning that he obtained it prior to the movie.

    • Odin is completely absent from the movie, despite the fact that he is stated to be the final rider that must be fought. Realistically, the movie would've ended with Shinji and Ren fighting him, as opposed to the swarm of Hydradragoon butterfliesnote .
    • In the film, Mirror Yui gave her life to the real Yui, whereas in the show proper, Mirror Yui was a creation of Shiro Kanzani's will. As he was not around for the creation of Mirror Yui in the film, he is simply fighting for her as a big brother.
    • Ren's motive, to save his girlfriend, is not mentioned in the film at all.
      • Presumably, if this film did happen during one of Odin's time vents, the following happened off-screen that didn't happen in the TV series: Odin stayed dead after being defeated the second timenote , Goro never became the second Zolda, Shuichi's health did not deteriorate as much as it did in the show, and Survive mode was only given to Shinji and Ren under the condition that it was only to be used under certain circumstances. However, that would still leave the elements involving Yui unaccounted for (as Shinji would have mentioned meeting Yui beforehand in the TV series).
  • Freak Out!: After Yui kills herself, Shiro has a freakout so huge, it breaks the barriers between the real world and the Mirror World.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite the events of the Rider War playing out differently prior to the movie, Ouja still killed Raia, Gai and (presumably) Imperer, and contracted with their Mirror Monsters.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Miho's older sister was killed by Asakura, leading her to seek revenge.
  • Say My Name: Miho/Femme's "ASAKURA!!!"
  • The Worf Effect: Within minutes of Ryuga's introduction, he effortlessly defeats Ouja.
  • Villainous Rescue: Ryuga makes his appearance by entering the fight between Miho and Asakura, then saving Miho from getting killed by Asakura and proceeds to curbstomp Asakura.
