Trivia / Kamen Rider Wizard

Go To

  • Development Gag: Amadam describes the Riders' Phlebotinum Rebel nature using the term "Cross of Fire". "Cross Fire" was the original name of the concept that would become Kamen Rider.
  • Executive Meddling: On Twitter, writer Sho Aikawa explained that Masahiro Inoue's cameo in the post-script episodes was this, after a fashion. The staff wanted to bring back at least one veteran Rider as part of the Heisei-era celebration, but the producer said it would be pointless unless they could get "the first" (Joe Odagiri, the original Kuuga) or "the last" (Sota Fukushi, Fourze); then, almost as an afterthought, he added "Or it could be Decade".
  • Fan Nickname:
    • "Kamen Rider Avatar". Due to the fact that the main Rider can use all four elements.
    • "Equitem Persona Wizard Magica"note , for being the Kamen Rider version of Puella Magi Madoka Magica.
  • I Knew It!: Due to a formula beginning to form with the previous Kamen Riders, many people began to guess at some tried and true theories and got this trope in return.
    • White Wizard being Wiseman? Many so called it.
    • Koyomi being the Macguffin Girl that everyone's after? A lot of people called it. Her dying prior to the finale? Most people called it. Her being revived? ...Actually disproved, to their surprise.
  • No Export for You: Strangely averted (at least in the US and Canada), since despite the fact that it's rather divisive amongst Western fans, it aired on the US premium channel TV Japannote . However...
    • No Dub for You: TV Japan doesn't dub their shows, and it didn't even have subtitles.
  • Role Reprise: In the last two episodes, Masahiro Inoue as Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade and Toshihiko Seki as Momotaros/Den-O Sword Form.
  • Post-Script Episodes: Wizard has a total of 53 episodes, but the main plot is resolved in #51; after that is a two-part Crossover special where Haruto joins forces with Tsukasa Kadoya and the other Heisei Kamen Riders, with Gaim getting his Early-Bird Cameo.
  • Prop Recycling: One of the props the Weretiger Phantom smashes is the Shun Daimonji football statue.
    • The Beelzebub Phantom is modified version of Phoenix's costume with the head of the Gurongi Zu-Gooma-Gu.
    • The Phantom Arachne is a retooling of Beast's first on-screen Phantom, Manticore, and uses the same halberd used by his direct predecessor Sylphi.
  • Throw It In: For the last 2 episodes,the producers stated that if they couldn't get either the first Heisei era rider (Kuuga) or the previous (Fourze) back, it would be pointless to get another rider back. Then someone suggested getting Decade back instead, and that wound up being what happened.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Medusa almost was played by Hikari Kajiwara, who previously starred in Kamen Rider Blade as Amane Kurihara (and cameoed in Kamen Rider Fourze as the Altar Zodiarts, Ritsuko Usaka), but for unknown reasons, the role went to Erina Nakayama.
    • Hacking the DX WizarDriver and White Wizard Driver revealed a number of Wizard Rings were ultimately were not produced. These include Barricade, Confuse (There is an unintelligible equivalent on White Wizardriver), Control, Dark, Delicious, Ear (same for both versions), Eye, Flash, Gamble (Surprise), Happy Birthday, High Speed (Rush; there is however a Rush sound on the regular Wizardriver), Invisible (exclusive to White Wizard; Equivalent to Clear which has no toy and is thus inaccessible), Knock, Note, Perfume (Aroma), Poison, Psychokinesis (same for both versions), Seal (There is an unintelligible version on White Wizardriver) and Shut Up (Silent).
    • Advertisement:
    • In addition to these, the DX Wizardriver also has The Origin and The End sounds. The former is activated by scanning the DX Change, Explosion, or Final Strike Wizard Rings (and also the Mage (Amber, Blue, and Green ver.) and Sorcerer Change ring from the "Last Hope Ring Set" and "Wizard Ring Finale Set", respectively) on the DX Wizardriver or Wizar Sword Gun. The latter can be triggered via the Eclipse ring from the "Last Hope Ring Set".
  • The Wiki Rule: Covered as part of Kamen Rider Wiki, and as an individual series on the Kamen Rider Wizard Wiki.
