  • Anytime Akiko said I didn't hear anything about this.
  • Akiko was surprisingly helpful as whatever the most trivial thing she said when either Philip or Shotaro was lost in their investigation was the keyword they are looking for. Philip acknowledges her as a genius and her way of doing things beyond common sense is amazing. Shotaro refused to believe it but later agreed that Akiko was indeed helpful. Double as Moment of Awesome.
  • Any scene that results in Shotaro look at something and then screaming. As in, really loudly.
  • In the OP credits before Accel joins the cast, catch the brief "fan blade" wipes between how Shotaro imagines his hard-boiled life should be...and how it actually is around the office with Akiko and Philip.


     Episode 1 and 2 
  • Shotaro’s first encounter with Akiko. After explaining to her the term ‘Hard-Boiled’, she shoved her jacket onto the table without warning before Shotaro drink a cup of coffee. Then, she proceeds to reveal a letter of eviction for Shotaro, causing him to Spit Take. The wannabe even goes as far as sniffing the letter, wondering when this is made.
    • Shotaro mistaken Akiko as a middle-school student until she reveal she was 20. Shotaro’s reaction was ‘For Real?’.
  • After Shotaro done his narration, Akiko went to Dope Slap him with a green slipper.
    • Shotaro was so annoyed that he had to do all the explaining until Akiko revealed that she was the owner, causing him to whine while wailing that her existence shattered his Hard-Boiled image.
  • Akiko put Shotaro in a headlock when he started muttering Dopant and did not explain anything.
  • When the two managed to avoid Magma’s attack by using Spider Shock to ascend, Akiko caused trouble and just jump down. Shotaro tried to undo the gadget but ended up being pulled upwards.
  • Akiko was so annoyed with Shotaro that she just put every item in the office into a box for eviction before noticing a door. She went in and meet Philip for the first time. Since Philip insulted her about not being interesting and ordered her to go back to Osaka, Akiko mentioned about Takoyaki and he ended up doing that research instead, much to Shotaro’s dismay.
  • During the battle with T-Rex Dopant, Akiko puts Philip in an abandoned patrol car to flee but instead get dragged by the mentioned Dopant instead. When Shotaro manages to catch up and told her to jump into RevolGarry while moving. She refused, to Shotaro’s dismay.
  • At the end of the arc, Akiko came in with a new signboard, which is light theme in nature, which causes Shotaro to scream. Furthermore, she proclaimed herself as the Chief, to Shotaro’s dismay. Then she declared that the three of them shall solved every case half-boiled style, which causes Shotaro to correct her it is Hard-Boiled, not half.
     Episode 3 and 4 
  • At the beginning of the episode, Shotaro was acting hard-boiled again until... a dog's bark scared him. Then Akiko pushed him off the chair and he hurt his feet from hitting the pillar, ordering him to return the dog to its owner if he has free time. Then Shotaro snaps and asks Akiko why a hard-boiled detective like him spend every single day searching for pets.
  • Versus the Money Dopant.
    Money: Just how many Gaia Memories do you have?!
    Double (Shotaro): Well, let's see; there one, two—Bah! Never mind that now.
    • Speaking of the Money Dopant, the sound of the Money Gaiamemory is hilarious because of the hammy way the line is read.
    Money GaiaMemory: MONAAYYY!
  • Shotaro skipping like a schoolgirl when he gets Wakana's autograph.
  • Shotaro's idea of winning back the memories and the life coins of victims was. A high stakes game of Old Maid.

     Episode 5 and 6 
  • "The Girl... A"
    • When the Dopant's ranged attack on the announcement suddenly stops, the camera switches to a confused Double standing in the middle of the abandoned scene. Then the shot-up big yellow sign behind the lectern falls down, causing Double to look behind him.
    • Jinno overreacted and declared that they are holding a funeral for Makura even though he only got shot in the leg, then continues to roll with it by claiming his subordinate had "fallen in the line of duty".
    • Philip has his butt stuck in a dustbin when his body fell over from transforming damn near the entire episode. He doesn't mind it, but Akiko does.
    • The arc ends with Phillip doing research on vinegar, covering a small table in shot glasses and assorted bottles, and Shotaro takes two shot glasses and lets Akiko have one. The result? A Double Spit Take.

     Episode 7 and 8 
  • "Find The C". Street dancer Dango tries to enter his old school after a Dopant attack has it cordoned by the police—all it takes is Jinno rambling to himself for Dango to slip by him. Then Jinno notices Akiko in the boy's place instead, and what's his first reaction?
    Jinno: "Amazing! A high-school boy turned into a middle-school girl!"
    [Cue well-earned Dope Slap.]
    • There's also the bus scene. Philip and Akiko are pursuing Dango onto a bus. But then Philip tells Akiko to keep track of him. Why? Philip points down, to the Double Driver on his person. In a public bus.

     Episode 9 and 10 

     Episode 15 and 16 
  • "The F Afterglow".
    • Philip overwork himself and fainted with boxing training after listening to Wakana's radio airing. Shotaro ordered Akiko to bring water (meaning a glass or a cup of water for Philip to drink]] but the latter brought a bucket of water. Akiko filled it too much and cannot carry it well, which ended up spilling on Shotaro's face. Shotaro's response?
    Shotaro: This office is full of nothing but runaway trains!
    • Philip "taking over" as Double to keep things diplomatic with Jinno even as Shotaro wants to clock him for his flip-flopping opinion of Double.

     Episode 17 and 18 
  • Happens again in "Farewell, N!", Shotaro was mad as hell that Akiko didn't catch his falling body as Double went FangJoker, but Phillip grabs Shotaro's hand and forces it down before they get to kicking the Bird Dopant's ass.

     Episode 19 and 20 
  • From The I Doesn't Stop / His Name is Accel, we have what Ryu comes across when he goes to tell Philip to do a lookup. Philip is wearing a St. Bernard costume, while listening to Healing Princess. Shotaro is...pretty mortified. Because of this, Shotaro officially banned Healing Princess for Philip.
    • The same episode is also not only the debut of the secondary Rider, but his motorcycle. Specifically, he is the motorcycle. It's funnier than it sounds on paper.

     Episode 23 and 24 
  • "The Two of us are a single Kamen Singer!" Doubles as a Moment of Awesome when they get into it by singing one of the main battle themes.
    • Shotaro first reaction when seeing Philips the second time, was volunteering to sing, with the former. Shotaro stood but try to excuse himself by covering his eyes with a headphone.That did not work at all. Not only that, Makki despite not liking Shotaro on stage, actually likes it. Don't forget the part where Shotaro's mask came off during the live footage.
    • As eerie the background music was for all Dopants, when Liar Dopant introduced himself for the second time in episode 23, he came rolling in a wheelbarrow.
    • That particular arc got in several good ones. Two notable moments are the reveal of just how epically Jimmy fails at music, and Shotaro commented that he is embarrassed while chasing Jimmy across a beach during the sunset, complete with slow-mo, relaxing music, flying doves, and Lampshade Hanging.
      • The city people's duck-and-cover reactions before said singing starts is both this and a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment now.
  • Akiko is shocked to find out she was disguised as a male bodyguard while Philip is disguised as Wakana.
    Akiko: I see. So she was switched with Philip-kun? (Beat) So... EH!? Hey! I didn't hear anything about this!In this situation, this should be my role!
    Shotaro: Oh no, I said, "Let Akiko do it," but...
    Ryuu: I was against it.
    Akiko: Huh?
    Ryuu: The role's beyond you, chief.
    Akiko: R... Ryuu-kun... (collapses to the floor in shock as a spotlight shines on her) "The girl is Philip-kun... If Philip-kun is a girl then I'm a boy... If Philip-kun is a boy then I'm a boy..."
    • Her feminity takes another hit.
    Akiko: (catches the unconscious Philip) Oh... he really looks like a princess! (Beat) WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!

     Episode 25 and 26 
  • #25 has a living doll that is supposed to be a Nightmare Fuel, but the fact the episode goes around Akiko and the doll is intentionally animated poorly, as well as attacking in the stupidest manners, turns it into a Nightmare Retardant.

     Episode 27 and 28 

     Episode 29 and 30 
  • "The Nightmarish H", when the Double Driver inexplicably uses wooden tablets instead of USB drives to transform. Also a CMoA when kabuki face painting appears on Shotaro's face.
    Double Driver: Shippuu! Kirifuda!
    • Which is part of a dream sequence. In the subsequent episode, Akiko is dreaming, and she transforms into Double herself. Hilarity Ensues
    • Also, in the beginning of the story arc, Ryu had a dream of his little sister's marriage......... To Mikio.
    • And yet another in the story arc, the Nightmare Dopant turns the Hard Boilder in Shotaro's dream into a bicycle.
    • Akiko stayed all night watching Edo period drama. Shotaro comments how boring Edo Period story was and will sleep within 5 minutes after watching. When he started watching the interest get over him and he continue watching. He realised its already morning after Akiko dope slap him and when the rooster crowing in the meaning.
    • While the conversation was serious, it was rather funny to see Philip and Shotaro transforming into W.... while sleeping!

     Episode 37 and 38 
  • In Episode 37-38. There are these:
    • Watcherman encountered the villain of the week, a goth woman who likes to eat pickled grasshopper. It's awkward enough from being fed one but being forced to give away information to avoid getting electrocuted is hilarity. Lucky enough Ryuu arrived but the woman just electrocute watcherman with her electric boots.
  • Philip had trouble deciding whether to flee with Wakana or stay with Shotaro and Akiko. His expressed feelings about Akiko and Shotaro were his family is Heartwarming Moments but what spoils everything was that he also cannot ignore Wakana either, causing Akiko to Dope Slap Philip for his indecision.

     Episode 39 and 40 
  • In "The Likelihood of the G", the Gene Dopant has an...inventive way of disarming Shotaro.
    Phillip:Calm down, Shotaro.
    Shotaro:But my hand is a COW!
    • Before that, Gene Dopant splash some spiky shurikens at the incoming W Cyclone Joker and after changing to Heat Joker. Shotaro's first action when successfully approached him? He smacks the Gene Dopant's head while scolding like a parent/teacher before strangling the MOTW's neck with his right fiery hand.
  • It is normal for a movie to take 1 to 2 hours to finish. That also includes with having a sequel or so. But 7 hours 20 minutes for a very boring movie and yet unfinished? Nope. Thats really vexing for the sane Shotaro but not Akiko.
    • Ryu's reaction to being ordered to kiss Ai to get a reaction from Toru.
      Akiko: We're changing the next scene to a kiss between Jessica and the scarecrow.
      Ryu: * horrified* What?!
      Akiko: We need to see if we get a reaction from Toru-kun and how he feels about Ai-san.
      Ryu: I'm pretty sure the director said he wasn't romantically interested in her.
      Akiko: That's what guys always say when they're in love! Now, make a break through! * beeps from Trial form appear* Like...boom! Smooch the heck out of her!
      Ryu: Despair is waiting for me at the finish line. * runs like hell*
    • At the end of this arc, Ryu went back to the Narumi Detective Agency, apologizing to Akiko for running away like this a while ago. With the gravitas of someone about to commit seppuku, he laid down a catalog of rom-com DVDs and declared that:
      Ryu: Do not question me! I've made my decision, Aki-P! I can't forgive myself for running back then. I've done my research. I will accept any kiss scene! This time I'll shake it off! No... (grabbing Akiko while beeps from Trial Form sound off again) Please let me shake it...
    • Akiko then tries to shake him off, Shotaro attempting to assist, but the Ryu just grabs HIM, then we cut to Phillip with a comical kiss sound effect.

     Episode 41 and 42 
  • Episode 41 and 42. Jinno Mikio is not easily fooled but skilled in being fooled. It's funny for the fact that he falls for any trick even thought its repetitive. On the other hand, it is heartwarming because anyone would feel guilty and stop tricking him later because he made you go along with your lies.

Out of Canon Moments

  • From the Kamen Rider arcade game Ganbaride, just three words: Joker Big Slipper.
  • In the Gaia Memory Encyclopedia special (created because the Hyper Battle Video, which usually discussed various aspects of the series, forgot to do just that) Philip suddenly has Laser-Guided Amnesia and forgets everything related to Gaia Memories, leaving it up to Shotaro to help him recall what they. Then they get to the Trigger Memory.
    Philip: I remember, Shotaro!
    Shotaro: Really?!
    Philip: It's really fun to press it a bunch of times! Look!
    • In general, Philip seems to take great joy in dicking around with the Gaia Memories.
    • Also, the reason for Philip's Amnesia was because of he slipped on one of Shotaro's extra hard boiled eggs from cooking contest earlier. Philip berates Shotaro for it, and Shotaro starts to run away... only to slip on said egg.
  • Speaking of the Hyper Battle Video, Ryu using the Engine Blade to cut broccoli.
    • And Shotaro taking his "hard-boiled" shtick to its logical conclusion. Let's just say it's not so applicable in practice.
  • The last of the Hardboiled Delusion Diaries involves Akiko, Ryu and Phillip wondering what it would be like if they were all "hard boiled" - which basically amounts to them doing their best Shotaro impression. That's just the half of it - there's also the fact that Renn Kiriyama (the real Shotaro) is trying his darndest not to laugh.
    • There's also Terror casually tossing Philip, Ryu, and Akiko into his terror pool all the while laughing maniacally while constantly having to push back up his giant headpiece, all the while Ryu and Philip switch roles and Akiko acts as Shotaro, hilariously bad acting ensues mainly because it's a delusion.
      • On the subject of Terror, when he appears his head is tilted back so he has to pull it back up, he casually tosses the Terror Memory away and then tosses the obviously stuffed Mick away.
      • Not only that, but when Terror makes his entrance, he writes an Evil Laugh on Philip's blackboard. In at least three different alphabets.
    • The Hardboiled Delusion Diary about Akiko as Shotaro's little sister is pretty funny, too. Especially when their father, Shinkuro Isaka shows up in his Dopant form.
    • Going further back, one is about Shotaro imagining what it would be like if he was a cop, and Ryu was a detective. We see that the agency is calmer and better with Ryu in charge, but we haven't at this point seen how Shotaro's life as a cop is. And we never do, because Shotaro has imagined himself as Santa-chan instead. And he tries to save face by giving them a gift, only to instead produce a pistol from his sack. And then, the Bird Dopant shows up as a cop, tries to arrest "Santaro-chan," and gets shot and dies, with Akiko, Philip and Ryu mourning the death of "Officer Bird."
  • In the Double Forever movie:
    Double (Shotaro): Now, count up your crimes!
    Eternal: There are too many to count!note 
    • From earlier in W Forever - once Shotaro gets to Futo Tower, Gozo whacks him with his bo, then he flexes with an accompanying cobra hiss. What does Shotaro do?He mock-flexes as well with a hiss of his own!Bonus points for "Come on, MACHO MAN!"
  • Everyone is arguing over each other for the final Gaia Memory. If you stop at one scene, there's a Freeze-Frame Bonus of some people arguing over a jump drive.
  • In Movie War Megamax you have the entire scene where Shotaro meets Gentaro, and if it weren't for Eiji those two would've shouted for the rest of the movie.
    • More specifically, Shotaro's initial reaction to Gentaro is thinking that he's obnoxious, and Philip snarks that the two are peas in a pod. Shotaro's offended until Gentaro says that he's out to beat the villain who made his friends cry, and Shotaro does a 180 and calls Gentaro a good kid, and the two shout "RIGHT ON!" "YES SIR!" at each other ad infinitum until Eiji interrupts (and watching closely you can see Philip trying very hard not to laugh in the background).
  • Meta Moment: After the Final Live Show, the actors are getting introduced on stage for the talk show. When Gong Teyu, Jun's actor, makes his way on stage, after posing for the audience, he drops his briefase before continuing over to his seat. Masaki Suda (Philip) picks it up and gives it back, much to the amusement of the rest of the cast.
  • Accel Movie - Akiko expresses her worry about Ryuu not addressing herself Akiko but Chief. Shotaro looked down on it. Akiko responded by slapping Shotaro with her usual slipper on him. Philip just watch, presumably wondering that Akiko should married the man currently in front of her if she desires so. Lily makes a magic trick to summon a divorce form and gave it to Akiko. Shotaro commented Illusions. It's Amazing!. However, Akiko isn't pleased at all and Dope Slap Shotaro again.
    • Akiko found Ryuu in the middle of his case, who was trying to rescue Aoi. She got mad because Aoi addresses Ryuu so casually while whining about getting divorced, depending on the situation.
      • In the end, Philip suggested that everyone except Ryuu to address Akiko by her name. Ryuu isn't pleased, acting like an Overprotective Dad for addressing Akiko so casually.
    • Jinno Mikio declare his team, with Makura of course as narcissists.
      • If you notice early hand, Makura had a haircut, which was worth laughing for. Mikio only realised this in the end after Makura make fun of Mikio that the former did not want to leave the hospital because of a beautiful nurse.
     Double Half and Core Movie with OOO 
  • We see Shotaro and Philip fighting a Dinosaur Yummy and later Terui come and fight it without transforming. No one knows the reason why until... Akiko came running in a wedding dress. She's not afraid of being hit but rather furious of Terui and Shotaro for not taking her wedding with Terui seriously, which were caused by the two riders going out to fight. Apart from giving a Dope Slap on Terui, she puts Shotaro in a headlock because he promised to walk on the aisle with her in Soukichi's stead. Then we had this:
    Shotaro: It cannot be helped! We're Kamen Rider!
    Akiko: *eyes widen and not convinced at all* KAAAMEN RAIIIIDAAAA?!
  • Afterwards, Terui warned Shotaro and Philip that she has Kamen Rider Allergy. Akiko then revealed (with Trial sound effect playing) that she confiscated Terui's Accel Memory and Driver, claiming NO MORE KAMEN RIDER!!.
  • Despite being a real hard-boiled detective, Soukichi had his stubborn side which are funny:
    1. He tries to make coffee by roasting its beans above flames and filter, which did not work out well because he just followed his instinct rather than following a recipe formula. And then we got to this when his partner Matsu gave him a recipe formula that he had lookup for:
    Soukichi: Matsu, you're the ultimate partner, but I don't want your help in coffee *throws the recipe formula on the work table* because -
    Matsu: Coffee is my partner for life, before I met you. is what you like to say. I know it. *heads over to the door with multiple knobs to throw the rubbish, which unbeknownst to him, Shroud was hiding in there.*
    Soukichi: Matsu! I always told you not to touch that door or ghost will come out! *Cue Matsu mockingly whistled that there was a ghost*
    2. He got hired by Melissa to be her bodyguard. While Matsu drove them to the theater, he gave Soukichi notes that the former written for him, which the title is 'How to become a Bodyguard, 71 Tips'. Soukichi's reaction? Open one of the pages, read it briefly, then stared at Matsu, who sneered in response before Soukichi just threw the notes to the back seat, much to Matsu's disappointment.
    3. He goes into the room Shroud was hiding after coming back from the theater. Shroud definitely heard Soukichi said early hand and sarcastically referring herself as the ghost.
    4. This exchange between Matsu and Soukichi in a public library.
    Matsu: You care for them at first, but in the end you leave the beautiful girls behind. You're a sinful man. Oh right, why don't you count up the people whom you've brought to tears?
    Soukichi: I'll count it next time. *It becomes Harsher in Hindsight because of what happened later on*

How well does it match the trope?
