All spoilers for Kamen Rider Wizard are unmarked. You Have Been Warned!

Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle is the Movie War movie crossover between Kamen Rider Gaim and Kamen Rider Wizard.

Kamen Rider Wizard: The Promised Place contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: Wizard's final battle with the Ogre Phantom takes place in his own Underworld. They literally fight in Haruto's memories.
  • Chekhov's Boomerang: Shunpei reveals he made a ring for Wizard. He gives the ring to Haruto, but it turns out to be a dud...until the Hope Ring activates.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: Although this isn't explicitly stated, Haruto gave away the Infinity Ring at the end of his series. This prevents him from using Infinity Style to fight the Ogre Phantom.
  • Foreshadowing: The donut shop owner's new special are Fruity Donuts: Orange, Banana, Grape, and Melon. The owner even uses the Sengoku Driver's voice when introducing the flavors.
  • Mood Whiplash: At a dramatic moment, Wizard decides to use the ring Shunpei made for him. Things suddenly turn comedic when the ring fails to work.
  • Morton's Fork: The false Koyomi is this to Haruto. If Haruto destroys the false Koyomi, it will destroy the Hope Ring, causing him to despair. If he doesn't, he'll fall into despair anyway because she's destroying the city. Haruto ultimately Takes a Third Option.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The movie reveals that Nitou recaptured Chimera, but it never explains how.
  • Self-Duplication: This is normally one of Wizard's powers, but there is an important example in this movie: When the Ogre Phantom enters Haruto's Underoworld, Koyomi's and Shunpei's rings activate to summon...Haruto in his Wizard suit. This allows Wizard to Engage with himself and dive into his own Underworld.

Kamen Rider Gaim: Sengoku Battle Royale! contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Alternate Universe: This part of the movie takes place in one. The Riders are sent to a world that resembles the Warring States era of Japan.
  • Alternate Self: The Bujin Riders are this. The generals are implied to be this to the Secondary Riders (with the exception of Ieyasu, Wizard's general).
  • And I Must Scream: The other Bujin Riders may count as this, given their fates at the hands of Bujin Gaim.
  • Badass Boast: Instead of the typical Oh, Crap! Buijin Gaim one when confronted by the mandatory Rider V-Formation Team Shot.
    Buijin Gaim: I'll take you all on!
  • Big Bad Ensemble: The Ogre Phantom and Buijin Gaim, who are unconnected to each other.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Right when Bujin Gaim is about to finish off Gaim and Baron, Zangetsu appears from out of nowhere and drives him back before ordering the two Beat Riders to go and help Wizard while Zangetsu himself takes on Bujin Gaim. Knowing how powerful/scary Zangetsu actually is, Gaim readily accepts the help.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Wizard's segment. Haruto keeps the Hope Ring in his underworld, effectively keeping any forces from stealing it. The only catch is that Koyomi's never coming back again, though it's probably for the best.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: Kaito tells Kouta he wishes he was born in the Sengoku era.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Using the Legend Rider Lockseeds apparently makes you borrow that Rider's Catchphrase; Micchy delivers Shotaro and Philip's "Now, count up your crimes!", Kaito uses Eiji's trademark Kiai "Seiya!", and Kouta and Haruto say "It's showtime!" in unison. The only exception is Takatora, who starts to deliver Gentaro's "It's space time!" but stops partway through and says "...And that's as far as I'll humor that notion."
  • The Cameo: The Warrior Gods' factions are each lead by a returning member of the original show's cast. So far this list includes Akira Date, Ryu and Akiko Terui, Keisuke Nago and Kengo Utahoshi.
  • Composite Character: The leaders of the Warrior Gods' factions are based off of real figures from the Sengoku Jidai, but are portrayed as alternate universe versions of Rider supporting characters. For example, OOO's faction is lead by Oda Nobunaga, who's portrayed by Hiroaki Iwanaga (AKA Akira Date, the first Kamen Rider Birth).
  • Continuity Nod: As mentioned above, OOO's faction is led by Oda Nobunaga. A central character in OOO's segment of Movie Wars Core was a clone of Nobunaga.
  • Crossover: Primarily a crossover between Kamen Rider Gaim and Kamen Rider Wizard. Alternate Universe versions of Riders from various past series also appear, with each series being its own faction in a Kamen Rider Warring States Period.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: During the credits, Yoko Minato, the Genesis Drivers, and the Melon, Lemon and Peach Energy Lockseeds appear.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: When Bujin Gaim traps them inside the sacred tree during the climactic battle, the other Bujin Riders imbue Wizard and Gaim with all of their power, allowing them to break out of the tree and deal the finishing blow to Bujin Gaim.
  • Enemy Mine: Zangetsu goes to fight alongside the Beat Riders against Bujin Gaim as he becomes aware that the latter is killing off all of the other Bujin Riders and has targeted the Beat Riders next, and their deaths would result in the loss of Sengoku Drivers (and considering Zangetsu's characterization later in the series, he may also have not approved of Bujin Gaim's actions).
  • Evil Laugh: Bujin Gaim does this a fair bit.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Twice, Micchy appears in full Beat Rider wear, untransformed, in front of his brother, and both times Takatora somehow fails to recognize him.
  • The Good King: Ieyasu wants to be this to a nation united. He's more than willing to pick up a sword in battle, even against Bujin Gaim, and openly states that he fights to protect and feed his people.
  • Gotta Kill Them All: Bujin Gaim targeting the other Bujin Riders.
  • Grand Finale: A Grand Finale to Kamen Rider Wizard, a Non Serial Movie to Kamen Rider Gaim.
  • Mega Manning: By combining the Bujin Riders' collectibles with raw Lockfruits, Gaim, Baron, Ryugen, and Zangetsu gain access to Legendary Rider Arms for the climactic battle.
    • The Ogre Phantom can use the abilities of the Phantoms he's consumed.
  • Mistaken Identity: After Gaim assumes Wizard Arms, Nitoh confuses Kota for Haruto when the latter two both use Wizard's pre-battle catchphrase.
    • Kota and Bujin Gaim get mistaken for each other several times. Justified as they're alternate versions of one another.
    • Buijin Gaim may or may not have mistaken Mai for the Priestess of Fate. We'll see.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Zangetsu interferes in what he thinks is a fight between Gaim and a strange Rider he's never seen before. Only after he pulls a Villainous Rescue does he realize that the Gaim he saved was not the Gaim from his world. Zangetsu has barely enough time for this to sink in before Bujin Gaim promptly turns on him. The sad thing is, Bujin Double had the upper hand and stood a very high chance of actually defeating Bujin Gaim right before Zangetsu stepped in and gave Bujin Gaim the vital opening he needed to kill Bujin Double.
  • Outside-Context Problem: While the origin of the Bujin Riders aren't revealed, Bujin Gaim was this in the context of his world, as he was the only Bujin who didn't have a general behind him and acted on his own, and had an army of kaijin instead of humans, which puts the other armies at a severe disadvantage.
  • Power Copying: By combining the items of the last four fallen Bujin Ridersnote  with a Helheim Fruit, the Woman of the Beginning creates Legend Rider Lockseeds for the Armored Riders to use against Bujin Gaim's monster army. Thus we have Ryugen Double Arms, Baron OOO Arms, Zangetsu Fourze Arms and Gaim Wizard Arms.
  • Recycled In Space: The Rider Jidaigeki!
  • Schizo Tech: The Sengoku world is based off the Sengoku Jidai period, but it has things like guns, cars, and electric guitars.
  • The Unfought: Bujin Decade is the only Bujin Rider not shown either fighting another Bujin Rider or falling to Bujin Gaim.
  • War God: What the Kamen Riders are perceived as in the Alternate Universe.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The Armored Riders presumably kept hold of the Legend Rider Lockseeds but they are never seen again note . Bujin Gaim's Blood Orange Lockseed explicitly survives as Mitsuzane uses it to open a Crack leading back home, but does not appear againnote .
