This Episode contains the following Tropes:

  • Break His Heart to Save Him: Shiori's dad attempts this, since he doesn't want to see him like that. He even goes as far as to fire her from his factory.
  • Cassandra Truth: None of the CR members are willing to believe or trust his claims about Kamen Rider Gemn due to his previous actions. And after Parado's interfereance, it's less likely that they trust him.
  • Downer Ending: Because of the Bugsters interference (Parado switching places with Kuroto to make it look like he was Gemn all along), Kiriya's truth is made a lie, and the trust between him and the other riders is all but gone. The only glimmer of hope is that Emu seems to have a bit of trust left.
  • Driven to Suicide: Kiriya's friend after he told him he had the Bugster virus. According to Hiiro, it was automobile related.
  • Advertisement:
  • Flashback Nightmare: The episode starts with Kiriya having one, dreaming of the time he found about his friend's death.
  • It's All My Fault: How Kiriya feels about his friend's fate and the main reason he is hesitant to tell the truth, to prevent another Awful Truth scenario.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: When Shiori is chased by Chambara Bugster, she turns around to see if he's still there. He isn't, because in classic Slasher Movie villain style, he is now in front of her.
  • Pun-Based Title: The title of the episode itself. "Some lie", in its Japanese pronunciation ("Samu rai") is a play on the word "Samurai".
  • Sword Limbo: Ex-Aid gets to do it twice in the same fight: once against Chambara Bugster's sword and later against Genm's Deadly Disc.
  • Took A Level In Bad Ass: Once Lazer goes Level 3, he manages to put Genm on the ropes.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Kiriya puts Emu against the wall because the intern decided to tell the patient that the Game Disease can be fatal. Seeing as this reminded him how the Awful Truth costed his friend's life, he does make a strong argument.

Gashat Count: Ex-Aid: 2 Brave: 2 Snipe: 1 Lazer: 2 Genm: 2
