- Alternate Character Interpretation: Two members of the Glee Club are a ninja and samurai respectively, Erin Suda used to be a student in Reefside and JK apparently had a younger sister growing up.
- Angst Aversion: Well-written and constructed, yes, but seeing one of the happiest and most light-hearted Kamen Riders in the franchise become a tragic monster along with all the crap everyone goes through hits just a little too close to home for some people. This is especially due to the fact that Fourze was written specifically to make Japan smile again after the tsunami.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Many reviewers have stated that Chuta Ohsugi is one of their favorite characters. Word of God stated that she also liked how Ohsugi became the faculty adviser and bemoaned how the writers missed the chance on having him do great things.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: One of the Serpents featured in this fanfic is the Rainbow Serpent. Kamen Rider Shinobi's spin-off series reveals that the titular rider fights against Dustards, who work for Niji no Hebi. What does Niji no Hebi translate to? Rainbow Serpent.
